The other night on the ABC, I watched the BBCs second effort
on the mysteries of 9/11 and I couldnt help noticing the Beeb
was rather more respectful towards the 9/11 truth movement than it
was in its last disastrous foray into the subject. Their previous
sneering effort came to grief because they showed live footage of
the Beebs on-the-spot reporter burbling news just-to-hand that
World Trade Centre 7 the building that wasnt hit by any
aircraft had collapsed. Alas, WTC7 could clearly be seen behind
her and it was to be a further 23 minutes before it fell. The critics
had a field day.
years after 9/11 the questions just will not go away and its
no wonder the official explanations simply beggar belief. Just
for starters, what are the chances that all three towers would collapse,
almost symmetrically, and right into their own footprint, just as
they would in a controlled demolition?
theory that the collapse of the twin towers was finally brought about
by raging infernos fed by thousands of tonnes of Jet A1 never made
much sense. Watch those videos of the planes hitting the towers and
youll see that the fuel in the aircraft burned up in a few seconds
of brief spectacular conflagration, mainly outside the buildings.
It didnt remain conveniently pooled inside on the impact floors
feeding fires hot enough to weaken, let alone melt, the steel frame.
even if it had, the asymmetrical impacts would have ensured that structural
damage and and the weakening effect of the supposed fires
caused an asymmetrical collapse but this is not what we see
what are the chances that Hani Hanjour, a bumbling novice who couldnt
fly a single-engine Cessna, could pilot a lumbering jet liner as if
it were a fighter plane, to hit the Pentagon in just the place where
it had been reinforced against such an eventuality?
what are the odds that the supposed hijackers would pick, to pull
off their coup, the very day that the US armed forces were holding
a major war game involving just such a hijacking scenario?
how is it possible that the Pentagon could be hit 1 hour and 20 minutes
after the attacks began, and not be intercepted by the US Air Force?
The questions roll on and on.
standard response to the critics is that if 9/11 was an inside job,
it would require an impossibly large conspiracy one too large
to be concealable. This looks like a telling point and it has the
advantage that you can make it and sound tough and worldly
without having to master any of the details.
its not such a profound point at all. The modern imperialist
states have evolved very large-scale conspiratorial organizations
with trained operatives and sophisticated techniques. These are our
security and intelligence organizations and
their role is to do illegal subversive things overseas (and at home).
the spooks do things that would often involve elected politicians
in deep trouble if they were party to the details, the politicians
prefer not to know. They effectively hand over enormous power to a
tiny unelected group and the only guarantee they thereafter have that
the organization stays within reasonable bounds is that its leaders
will wield their subversive power with integrity, moderation and judgement.
power of this sort usually attracts dubious personality types, including
those who are turned on by duplicity and the type of idealogue who
thinks he (its almost always he, of course) knows whats
in the best interests of the ignorant masses and their stupid elected
organizations are set up with military-style compartmentalisation.
The foundation of ordinary military operational security is the restriction
of knowledge of any one sub-section to the minimum necessary for successful
operation. If foot soldiers are given the whole picture theyll
give the whole game away if they get captured or blab in the earshot
principle is magnified enormously in secret subversive organizations.
Operatives have narrowly defined jobs and, in the interests of secrecy,
they do not discuss business or compare notes with other operatives
in different departments. They do what theyre told and they
dont ask searching questions. They dont get together after
work at the pub to gossip or brag. Thats the foundation of the
profession. You get into a lot of trouble if you breach the code.
the small group at the top know everything. Only they can see the
whole picture. This hands the rogue manipulators enormous power. With
it, they can set big conspiracies in train using relatively small
numbers of people.
of the most important of the conspiratorial black arts is controlling
the narrative. Through it, the conspiracy spreads to involve
what might be called unconscious conspirators. When a
false flag operation like 9/11, or 7/7 in London is set in motion,
the official line is promulgated and accepted by the mainstream media
within hours, if not minutes of the deed. Most importantly, the perpetrator
is quickly identified and his methodology established. It was Arabs,
Muslims, suicide bombers, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden. They used
TATP, or aircraft. Whatever.
experienced state conspirators now know that in an emergency situation
the official media can almost always be relied upon to avoid irresponsible
speculation and inquiry and to rally patriotically to the defence
of the nation. Ditto the politicians. In this special sense a conspiracy
can be very large indeed. It is naïve to think otherwise.
