CAUGHT! A NEW 9/11 GAME OUTED
By Gordon Duff / STAFF WRITER / Senior Editor
Today, John Avalon wrote a piece for the Daily Beast describing those who are asking for a new 9/11 investigation as “wingnuts.” What he fails to tell us is that, as “propaganda chief” for Rudy Guliani, a man whose former chief of staff is now doing time as a Mafia “bag man” Bernie Kerik, burying the truth has long been a part of his job.
The prisoner in question, Bernie Kerik, was supposed to head Homeland Security. Think about a character from the movie Goodfellas as the nation’s chief law enforcement official and you have an idea where John Avalon comes from. The only way of going further would have been to put the ghost of the “dapper don,” John Gotti himself into the Whitehouse. Is Avalon another Kerik or just a “Kerik/Guliani associate?”
Much of the 9/11 controversy centers around the mysterious collapse of Building 7, never hit by a plane, a building Guliani is said to have been warned to leave before it was brought down by controlled demolition.
Larry Silverstein, the controller of the destroyed WTC complex, stated plainly in a PBS documentary that he and the FDNY decided jointly to demolish WTC 7 late in the afternoon of 9/11. In the documentary “America Rebuilds“, aired September 2002, Silverstein makes the following statement;
“I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse.”
The problem with this story is that, according to literally thousands of engineers and architects, it would take weeks to engineer the collapse of a building like this. Did Silverstein have a crystal ball or are all buildings in New York wired to explode, “just in case?” The 9/11 Commission was never allowed to look into Building 7. Guliani and Silverstein are people John Avalon worked with on a daily basis.
Avalon is a tool, an “asset,” but whose? Who profits from his story? When the 9/11 Commission itself asked for prosecutions of those who perjured themselves and presented false documents and have, quite frankly, stepped away from their own findings, a massive movement to reopen the investigation has grown worldwide. Top intelligence officials, military officers, scientists and engineers, in numbers far exceeding any of opposing opinion, are clamouring for a new investigation.
It has become so powerful that the “assets” are coming out of their holes. Avalon’s approach is classic:
“It is appropriate that Ahmadinejad used the phrase the “big lie,” first coined by Adolph Hitler in Mein Kampf to explain the psychology behind propaganda campaigns of misinformation. “In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility,” Hitler wrote, because “It would never come into [most people’s] heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Avalon doesn’t tell us what “truth” is being distorted but he drags out Hitler, Mein Kampf and the very suspect Ahmandinejad of Iran, a veritable “kitchen sink” of unrelated references in what is unavoidably part of a misinformation campaign almost exactly as he himself is describing.
Avalon is describing a conspiracy. Who is the “wingnut” here?
Exactly what group is conspiring together? Who is financing the “9/11 truth” propaganda campaign that is part of the massive conspiracy that Avalon is referring to? What is their goal? So far, the “9/11 truth” movement is what it looks like, people unsatisfied with the explanation they got, scientists, scholars, politicians, world leaders and a few crazy people, all loosely tied to one idea, finding the truth, a truth that key members of the 9/11 Commission have said is not in their report because of a “criminal conspiracy” to mislead them.
If anything, the “9/11 truth “movement is the victim, a victim of smear campaigns and it is increasingly reported that their organizations, which number in the hundreds, have come under investigation by security agencies and their membership has been heavily infiltrated much as with the militia movements of the 80s and 90s.
After the Oklahoma City bombing, the militias disappeared. It is claimed they had one last meeting. It went like this:
“We’ve been putting this off for awhile but its time we faced up. OK, I have a question for the membership. Will all FBI informants please step forward. OK, will all of you please step back where you were. Meeting adjourned.”
Avalon’s article appears to be a small and very stupid part of the “truth debunking” movement, clearly tied to “insiders,” and there is no more of an “insider” than Rudy Guliani. Is someone figuring that if we are drowned with enough baseless charges of conspiracy, the real conspiracies can go unchallenged? This is a very common “psy-ops” deception ploy meant, frankly, to be wielded by a greater intellect and with greater skill.
Do the terms “truth debunking” and “obstruction of justice” mean the same thing? We should think about this.
“9/11 truthers” aren’t armed radicals and nothing is being threatened other than a “cover story” that fell apart years ago. If the “9/11 truth” movement is being investigated as a criminal conspiracy, as seems to be the case, using extraordinary means, even to the point of applying Patriot Act “counter-terrorism” provisions, what does this mean?
Informants are being discovered in nearly every 9/11 group, some spouting insane theories, others advocating violence. We call people like this “agent provocateurs.” This is also a classic “counter-intelligence” practice. Why is this being done and who is ordering it, financing it? It’s happening, and on an ever growing scale.
Do we have two conspiracies now or is it three? Can anyone keep track? We certainly know Avalon’s story is part of something, the smell is outrageous. Is it a conspiracy? Does working for Rudy Guliani, now rumored to represent many of the world’s most vicious dictators as a lobbyist, make people simply “go bad?”
After dragging out Hitler, Avalon then went after poor and long dead Osama bin Laden. While in Pakistan last week, meeting with Lt. General Hamid Gul, former head of the Pakistani intelligence agency, the ISI, and General Aslem Beg, former Chief of Staff, Army of Pakistan, along with Col “Imam,” coordinator of military activities against the Soviets, I was able to verify the December 2001 death of Osama bin Laden. This was also confirmed at the highest governmental levels, the same folks that regularly brief our own government.
If you are looking for suspects, you are now safe to start looking at anyone presenting video, audio or other “evidence” of bin Laden or statements about bin Laden, 9/11 or terror attacks after bin Laden’s death. Anyone originating such information can easily be assumed to have been involved in the planning and execution of the acts being put off on bin Laden.
Thankfully, we know who these people are and can arrest and prosecute them as soon as we come to our senses.
Not only has bin Laden been dead for years but the CIA’s own translation of bin Laden’s tapes shows him denying all involvement in 9/11. What does Avalon do? He brings out the transcript of a long discredited “phony bin Laden” tape received from former Israeli Defense Force member, Rita Katz and her organization Site Intelligence, a group that downloads things from conspiracy sites on the internet, something Avalon must know alot about.
Here is what Avalon had to say:
“Alternately, you can just take Osama bin Laden’s word for it. He’s repeatedly taken credit for the attacks, including on a videotape where he recounts the planning process and his wish for maximum damage: “We calculated in advance the number of casualties from the enemy, who would be killed based on the position of the tower. We calculated that the floors that would be hit would be three or four floors. I was the most optimistic of them all. … Due to my experience in this field, I was thinking that the fire from the gas in the plane would melt the iron structure of the building and collapse the area where the plane hit and all the floors above it only. This is all that we hoped for.”
Of course, bin Laden never said any of this. This is a fabrication. Why would someone write something like this unless there was something to hide? Who teaches people to write like this? Did writing speeches for Rudy Guliani suddenly make a political propagandist into a journalists? Let’s check Avalon’s sources against the official record.
This is the CIA’s version of the only verified bin Laden statements on 9/11. How does Mr. Avalon’ story hold up?

for the whole mankind. Allah is the Sustainer, who sent Prophet Muhammad for our
guidance. I am thankful to the Ummat Group of Publications, which gave me the
opportunity to convey my viewpoint to the people, particularly the valiant and Momin
[true Muslim] people of Pakistan who refused to believe in lie of the demon. I have
already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As
a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. Neither I had any knowledge of these
attacks nor I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an
appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and
other people. Such a practice is forbidden ever in the course of a battle. It is the United
States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children, and common
people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam.
Is the CIA now involved in a plot to discredit, well, exactly who? Are they plotting against John Avalon? If you wondered why Osama bin Laden had never been charged with any 9/11 related crimes, this statement and a rather telling lack of evidence might help you with your conclusions, unless, of course, you think that the FBI is involved in a plot against Avalon and Guliani also.
We, long ago, had written off journalism as an honest profession. Were I to make a living out of accusing others of being “wingnuts,” I might, first of all, learn to write. Beyond that, I would learn to get one or two facts straight and, if I were to try using cheap propaganda tricks, I would be alot better at it. This is lame.
After billions have been spent and 9 years have past, no proof of Osama bin Laden’s involvement in 9/11 has been presented. However, we have had attempts to lie to the 9/11 Commission and more than a few stories like this one, inaccurate, cheap propaganda that emit this kind of stench.
Always ask, why would someone write something this blatant unless they were serving some purpose? Are articles like this proof of a conspiracy in themselves? The “9/11 truth” movement is only asking for an investigation. It isn’t making statements of having proof of “false flag” operations against the United States by the Bush administration or Israel.
Would an investigation head that way? What would be found? Why try to stop an investigation when, obviously, a new one is required, even demanded? With the original 9/11 Commission’s work falling apart with continual scandals and new evidence, our path is obvious.
What is being hidden? What agenda does Avalon’s article serve and who is he tied to?
How much money have so many made off 9/11? Names like Chertoff, Silverstein, Guiliani, Ridge, Haliburton, Blackwater and dozens more, all friends, political allies, always come up. I don’t know if all the coincidences make up a massive conspiracy against the United States, a conspiracy that killed thousands and put us into two wrongful wars.
Can I prove this article is part of a conspiracy or just dumb? The dumb part is obvious. The ties to Guliani, who sits at the heard of any conspiracy theory, is, if anything, a demand for an investigation.
There wouldn’t be articles like this, not so many, unless there is a conspiracy, like the one Avalon accuses others of, but one he is serving himself, knowingly or not. Is it a conspiracy to save Americans from learning something unpleasant about the nature of their own government and what kinds of things it is capable of?
This is what most Americans think. Are they right? Do they have the right to know?
These are the questions and articles like John Avalon’s make the point for asking those questions and perhaps using some of those Patriot Act powers, the waterboarding, the detentions, the renditions and the special tribunals for something other than silencing dissent.
