How we know it was at least LIHOP for MinistryOfTruth

MinistryOfTruth wants to be talked down.  I can’t do that.  Instead, I can show how 9/11 was known and allowed to proceed to the end by the Bush Administration.  Bear with me if this gets long.

First, my background. I’m a former Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist (18 years exp. in bomb disposal military and private), been to Iraq twice, and a former law enforcement officer. I pulled four Secret Service Presidential Protection details for Presidents Reagan, Bush Sr. and Clinton.

That the Bush administration knew of a coming attack cannot be debated. They were warned in the August 2001 memo. John Ashcroft stopped flying commercially months prior to 9/11 based on FBI information.

So, for those who DON’T question the “official” story, here are my questions to you:

I’ll try and do it in a timeline format (though loosely).

From Time magazine:

The first warning came from Phoenix, Ariz. On July 10, [2001] agent Kenneth Williams wrote a paper detailing his suspicions about some suspected Islamic radicals who had been taking flying lessons in Arizona. Williams proposed an investigation to see if al-Qaeda was using flight schools nationwide. He spoke with the voice of experience; he had been working on international terrorism cases for years. The Phoenix office, according to former FBI agent James Hauswirth, had been investigating men with possible Islamic terrorist links since 1994, though without much support from the FBI’s local bosses. Williams had started work on his probe of flight schools in early 2001 but had spent much of the next months on nonterrorist cases. Once he was back on terrorism, it took only a few weeks for alarm bells to ring. He submitted his memo to headquarters and to two FBI field offices, including New York City. In all three places it died.

Five weeks after Williams wrote his memo, a second warning came in from another FBI field office, and once again, headquarters bungled the case. On Aug. 13, Zacarias Moussaoui, a 33-year-old Frenchman of Moroccan ancestry, arrived at Pan Am International Flight Academy in Minnesota for simulator training on a Boeing 747. Moussaoui, who had been in the U.S. since February and had already taken flying lessons at a school in Norman, Okla., was in a hurry. John Rosengren, who was director of operations at Pan Am until February this year, says Moussaoui wanted to learn how to fly the 747 in “four or five days.” After just two days of training, Moussaoui’s flight instructor expressed concern that his student didn’t want it known that he was a Muslim. One of Pan Am’s managers had a contact in the FBI; should the manager call him? “I said, ‘No problem,'” says Rosengren. “The next day I got a call from a Minneapolis agent telling me Moussaoui had been detained at the Residence Inn in Eagan.”

On Aug. 6, [2001], while on vacation in Crawford, Texas, Bush was given a PDP, this one on the possibility of al-Qaeda attacks in the U.S. And not one but two FBI field offices had inklings of al-Qaeda activity in the U.S. that, had they been aggressively pursued, might have fleshed out the intelligence chatter about an upcoming attack. But the systemic weaknesses in the FBI’s bureaucracy prevented anything from being done.

It’s a fact that FBI agent Coleen Rowley alleges that higher-ups interfered in and obstructed her investigations into Zacarias Moussaoui’s belongings.

From The Guardian:

FBI and military intelligence officials in Washington say they were prevented for political reasons from carrying out full investigations into members of the Bin Laden family in the US before the terrorist attacks of September 11.

US intelligence agencies have come under criticism for their wholesale failure to predict the catastrophe at the World Trade Centre. But some are complaining that their hands were tied.

But the FBI files were closed in 1996 apparently before any conclusions could be reached on either the Bin Laden brothers or the organisation itself. High-placed intelligence sources in Washington told the Guardian this week: “There were always constraints on investigating the Saudis”.

They said the restrictions became worse after the Bush administration took over this year. The intelligence agencies had been told to “back off” from investigations involving other members of the Bin Laden family, the Saudi royals, and possible Saudi links to the acquisition of nuclear weapons by Pakistan.

“There were particular investigations that were effectively killed.”

Only after the September 11 attacks was the stance of political and commercial closeness reversed towards the other members of the large Bin Laden clan, who have classed Osama bin Laden as their “black sheep”.

Here are the “coincidences” and the questions that must be asked:

1) President Bush sets up photo-op at an elementary school in Florida on Sept 7th for Sept 11th.  That school, Booker Elementary School, in Sarasota, Florida, was close to where some of the 9/11 hijackers had lived.  The first WTC tower was hit by the first plane while Bush was still in the motorcade.  They believed it to be an accident and continued the photo-op.

Question:  How is it that Vice-President Cheney was hustled to the shelter below the White House the morning of 9/11 by the Secret Service, but, President Bush was NOT hustled from an exposed elementary school by the USSS travel team? You DO remember Andrew Card TELLING Bush that “America is under attack”, by hijacked aircraft, yet, the USSS agents didn’t get the President to a safer location? Why not?  The President was allowed to finish the photo-op, taking 30 minutes to do so.

2) After 9/11, I attended a law-enforcement only FBI briefing on the 9/11 hijackers. The FBI agent showed us how they had tracked all of the supposed hijackers around the world, some for as long as 19 years, but, claimed that when these individuals entered the United States, suddenly, they could not find ONE of them. Not ONE. They could track these people from third-world country to a desert cave, but, couldn’t find ONE of them inside our own borders? Do YOU believe that? (On a side note, later, the FBI claimed it had NO EVIDENCE that these 19 individuals actually committed the hijacking).

Question:  If they had no evidence linking these terrorists to the attack, why did the FBI put out, within 24 hrs, all 19 pictures claiming these men were the hijackers if they had to later retract the claim?  

Question:  If the FBI couldn’t find ANY of the hijackers for over a year while they were inside the United States training, how did the FBI/USSS find where they lived in the next 24 hrs after 9/11?  A Ouija board?

3) Argue WTC 1 and 2 all day long. Tell me how WTC 7, which was NOT hit by an airplane, had the same superficial damage as other buildings around the WTC complex (that didn’t collapse), suddenly dropped into its footprint minutes AFTER people inside were TOLD to evacuate because the building “was coming down”.

Question: First, who had ESP to KNOW the building was going to fall in the first place?  Second, how did the ENTIRE building fail simultaneously?  

4) How was it that all four hijacked aircraft only were 30% filled, or less, of passengers and the manifests didn’t include the names of the hijackers?  If the hijackers got through security, they had to be ticketed passengers, yet, not one manifest names the hijackers.  And, we are talking 757’s that hold 180 passengers carrying less than 30%?

Question:  How does a terrorist go through security checkpoints and NOT be a ticketed passenger on the passenger manifest?  Worse, how does this happen at multiple airports on the same day where NONE of the terrorists, all of whom went through security checkpoints, do so WITHOUT a ticket, and, if they had a ticket, why weren’t they listed on the passenger manifest?

These are but the basic questions…

  1. …recitation of the timeline and facts.

  2. you refuse to follow this question to its logical conclusion, particularly the second part.

    “Question: First, who had ESP to KNOW the building was going to fall in the first place?  Second, how did the ENTIRE building fail simultaneously?”

    Do you believe the official story or do you believe your lying eyes?

  3. and it makes me think, maybe the point of a limited Torture investigation is because they don’t want to over turn the wrong stones.

    This blew my mind, and, not to brag, that takes a lot.

    Points 2 and 3 are real humdingers. In retrospect, it was like they all had it ready to go from the moment it happened, which points to MIHOP, but LIHOP is at the very least clear to me now.

    And yet that Dick Cheney goes on air and prattles on about “We kept you safe since then”

    Yeah, EXCEPT for that one time.


    Cheney needs to be in jail, stuffed into the same cell with the rest of these motherfucking murderers.

    between MIHOP and LIHOP.

    Saying it has to be one or the other assumes, erroneously I believe, that Bush and Cheney actually controlled everything that goes on.  

    It’s not an either/or.   LIHOP is exactly the same as being part of the conspiracy, which is irrefutable IMO.

    If they were part of the conspiracy, then it’s basically MIHOP.   But the problem with these distinctions is it makes it sound like Bush and Cheney were actually in charge of the operation, which is highly unlikely.   It also didn’t originate with them.   But they were certainly cogs in the machine that made it happen.  

    I think it’s counterproductive to talk MIHOP vs LIHOP for this reason.

    to scramble the planes. I think it was over two hours from the time that the first plane veered from its scheduled course until the last plane went down in Pennsylvania. This is in the middle of the most densely populated corridor in the United States. I just cannot believe that with the trillions that have been spent on the world’s most sophisticated military weaponry and systems, that it could take two hours to get a fighter plane into the air to defend NYC and the freakin’ Pentagon. It’s just not believable.

    If you haven’t read this, you absolutely must.   It’s been out there for a while, and it’s just as good as when it came out.   The only thing you can say negatively about it now is that it doesn’t cover a LOT of new information that’s been uncovered.   It’s also darkly funny as hell:

    This is incorrect.

    I have a more thorough response to the diary, but I have to run at the moment – be back later.

    I totally am willing to beg and send fresh baked goodies to have a copy of this on The Wild Wild Left’s Front Page.

    It is analytical perfection, and needs many eyes!!!!
