Never Forget 9-11 was an Inside Job


As we remember those who died on that fateful day, we get angry. 

We are reminded that those responsible, as well as those complicit of the heinous, unforgivable attack on 9-11 have never been brought to justice.


We've made it through another September 11th. Once again we were reminded of the senseless deaths of countless American men women and children, as well as the horrific acts of madmen... the same psychotic politicians who planned and ordered this unforgivable slaughter, the intelligence officers/agents who orchestrated it  and the fall guys who carried it out.

In this article, I will be explaining why I believe 9-11 was an inside job, probably a conspiracy between U.S. and Israeli leaders, and probably carried out by the CIA and Israel's version of our rogue U.S. intelligence agency, the Mossad.

Over the course of the mourning, mainstream media will again show the horrific images of obscure planes crashing into towers and the disturbing scene of ground zero in the aftermath.

During the grieving, flag waving, and speech ignoring, at least citizens will get a break from the circus surrounding the 2016 mock elections.

This silence that will come during the remembrance will not only be when remembering the victims that day, but the complete lack of coverage given by the media and the totally inadequate investigation that was little more than a farce. 

Though many questions have been answered by persistent private investigators, activists and relatives of those who lost their lives that fateful day, there are still countless unanswered questions and suspicious facts surrounding that fateful morning.

Of course, anybody questioning or challenging the "official story" was quickly labelled a "conspiracy theorist" to discredit the person as crazy, even though it was proven by old, declassified CIA memos that the spy agency did in fact create the term "conspiracy theorist" in response to the many Americans who questioned the findings of the Warren Commission's rulings on the JFK murder. Apparently, it had worked so well then, they decided to make it a permanent slur of the English language.

In contrast, a recent study showed that "conspiracy theorists" are usually more balanced than those who don't question the government's official narrative. 

Remember, a conspiracy is little more than two or more entities conspiring or colluding to commit a crime. For more about the CIA's consistent "conspiracy theory" slur campaign, check out our Definitions tab on the Menu.

Below I have listed some of the biggest discrepancies associated with 9-11. If they were plausibly addressed, many a conspiracy theorist would throw up their hands in defeat and find a new conspiracy to bitch about. But yes, they need to be answered if we ever want to achieve some kind of closure.

Issue 1: Media Reported it Before it happened




Amazingly enough, most people still believe that only two towers fell that day. The fact that Tower 7, a 47-story building, collapsed, was but a small blip in the media. Since 9/11, World Trade Center Tower 7 is rarely, if at all mentioned in the mainstream media.

What's even more crazy, when tower 7 is mentioned most people think that it’s a conspiracy theory that it fell. 

Issue 2: Building 7 Fell without being Hit at all


Still, Tower 7 was not hit by a plane, yet collapsed into its own footprint at free fall speed. Watch the short video below and decide for yourself:




Issue 3: 911 Commission was Railroaded


Not only was the 911 commission given extremely limited funds to conduct their investigation Only $15 million was given to investigate 9/11 in comparison with the $60 million spent investigating Clinton’s affairs with Monica Lewinski. 

Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission after calling it a “national scandal,” stated in a 2003 PBS interview:
“I’m saying that’s deliberate. I am saying that the delay in relating this information to the American public out of a hearing… series of hearings, that several members of Congress knew eight or ten months ago, including Bob Graham and others, that was deliberately slow walked… the 9/11 Commission was deliberately slow walked, because the Administration’s policy was, and its priority was, we’re gonna take Saddam Hussein out.”
Immediately following the attacks, the Bush Administration stated that "nobody in our government at least, and I don't think the prior government, could envisage flying air planes into buildings" (George Bush) and that no-one "could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile" (Condoleezza Rice). An Air Force general called the attack "something we had never seen before, something we had never even thought of." FBI Director Robert Mueller announced "there were no warning signs that I'm aware of."

The 9/11 Commission Report stated that "the 9/11 attacks were a shock, but they should not have come as a surprise. Islamic extremists had given plenty of warnings that they meant to kill Americans indiscriminately and in large numbers." During the spring and summer of 2001, US intelligence agencies received a stream of warnings about an imminent al-Qaeda attack; according to George Tenet, Director of Central Intelligence, "the system was blinking red."[1The warnings varied in their level of detail and specificity, and included warnings from both domestic intelligence operations and warnings from foreign governments and intelligence agencies.

In her testimony to the 9/11 Commission, Condoleezza Rice stated that "the threat reporting that we received in the spring and summer of 2001 was not specific as to time nor place nor manner of attack. Almost all the reports focused on al-Qaeda activities outside the United States." On August 6, 2001, the President's Daily Brief was titled Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US. It warned that bin Laden was planning to exploit his operatives' access to the US to mount a terrorist strike: "FBI information... indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country, consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attack."

The 9/11 Commission Report outlined the following "opportunities that were not or could not be exploited by the organizations and systems of the time":
  1. not watchlisting future hijackers Hazmi and Mihdhar, not trailing them after they traveled to Bangkok, and not informing the FBI about one future hijacker's US visa or his companion's travel to the United States;
  2. not sharing information linking individuals in the Cole attack to Mihdhar;
  3. not taking adequate steps in time to find Mihdhar or Hazmi in the United States;
  4. not linking the arrest of Zacarias Moussaoui, described as interested in flight training for the purpose of using an airplane in a terrorist attack, to the heightened indications of an attack;
  5. not discovering false statements on visa applications;
  6. not recognizing passports manipulated in a fraudulent manner;
  7. not expanding no-fly lists to include names from terrorist watchlists;
  8. not searching airline passengers identified by the computer-based CAPPS screening system; and not hardening aircraft cockpit doors or taking other measures to prepare for the possibility of suicide hijackings.
With regard to the failures of the US air defense system on the morning of the attacks, the Report explains that:

Existing protocols on 9/11 were unsuited in every respect for an attack in which hijacked planes were used as weapons. What ensued was a hurried attempt to improvise a defense by civilians who had never handled a hijacked aircraft that attempted to disappear, and by a military unprepared for the transformation of commercial aircraft into weapons of mass destruction.

The Report explains that the emergency response was also "necessarily improvised": there were "weaknesses in preparations for disaster, failure to achieve unified incident command, and inadequate communications among responding agencies... At the Pentagon, [there were] problems of command and control.

Also, Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission after calling it a “national scandal,” stated in a 2003 PBS interview:

“Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.” 

In 2006, the Washington Post reported that several members of the 9/11 Commission suspected deception on part of the Pentagon. As reported,


Issue 4: President Bush refused to be Interviewed


Staying on the topic of the 9/11 commission, in 2004, President George Bush and VP Dick Cheney told the commission that they would not be formally interviewed in relation to the attacks on September 11.

On April 27, 2004 the White House released a statement saying there would be no recording or formal transcription of the interview. The duo also demanded to be interviewed together, against the wishes of the commissioners.

According to the New York Times:

Under a pact with the White House that allowed all its 10 members in the interview, the commission is permitted to take a note taker, but not a recording device. The panel said it did not press for a formal transcription of the session, letting the White House decide.

Issue: 5 The Bush-Saudi Connection



The US government admitted they covered up the fact that the Saudi Arabian government supported the hijackers.

“I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.” – Congressman Thomas Massie describing his experience reading the 28 pages in March 2014.

“The 28 Pages” – part of an 838-page Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 – have been kept almost entirely classified since 2002.

Former Sen. Bob Graham, a co-chairman of the investigation committee and strong advocate of declassifying the information, said, “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11 and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.”

When the 28 pages were finally released, although many parts are still redacted. They show that Graham was right—several figures in the Saudi Arabian government provided assistance to the 9-11 hijackers from within the U.S.

“There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers,” reads the first of 28 pages. “The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, indicating that individuals associated with the Saudi Government in the United States may have other ties to al-Qa’ida and other terrorist groups.

Although the wealthy bin Laden family disowned Osama in 1994 after his alleged involvement in terrorism like the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, the events of 9/11 brought to attention connections between the bin Laden family and the Bush family It has been alleged that Osama was never disowned and that his family were aware of his activities in the years preceding 9/11. The connections between the bin Laden family and Bush family have led to conspiracy theories that President George Bush was also aware of Osama's activities and deliberately allowed 9/11 to take place.

The movie Fahrenheit 9/11 shows some business connections between the Bush family and the bin Laden family. It relates how Salem bin Laden invested heavily in Arbusto Energy, a company run by George W. Bush, through his friend James R. Bath Several members of the Bush family are investors in the Carlyle Group, a defense contractor and investment fund with numerous interests in the Saudi Arabia and the Middle East and connections to the Saudi Binladen Group, run by former Reagan administration Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci. On September 10, 2001, former President George H. W. Bush and several members of his cabinet had been present at a Carlyle Group business conference with Shafig bin Laden, a half-brother of Osama bin Laden, at the Ritz-Carlton hotel located several miles from the Pentagon. The conference was continuing with the remaining cabinet members and bin Laden's brother at the time of the Pentagon attack.George H. W. Bush remained an advisor to the Carlyle Group for two years after the attacks.



The New York Times reported that members of the bin Laden family were driven or flown under Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) supervision to a secret assembly point in Texas and then to Washington from where they left the country on a private charter plane when airports reopened three days after the attacks The 9/11 commission later concluded that "the FBI conducted a satisfactory screening of Saudi nationals who left the United States on charter flights" and that the exodus was approved by special advisor Richard Clarke after a request by Saudi Arabia who feared for the safety of their nationals. 

On June 20, 2007, the public interest group Judicial Watch released FBI documents that it says suggested that Osama bin Laden himself may have chartered one of the flights. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton accused the FBI of conducting a "slapdash" investigation of the flights.

Author Steve Coll in his 2008 book The bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century writes that most members of the family barely know Osama. Richard Clarke in a column about the book notes that because it was custom at that time for successful Muslim men to have multiple wives this claim rings true. Clark also theorizes that the FBI did not question the bin Ladens before they were flown out of the US and have not questioned them since because they already had extensive knowledge about them.

Issue 6: 2,300 architects and engineers and 250 pilots say official story false.


After the myriad of holes began to form in the official narrative, several dedicated engineers and architects took to their own investigation. Today, there are over 2,300 architects and engineers  as well as more than 250 seasoned pilots who’ve signed on to the initiative, all declaring the official story to be false.

Issue 7: Bin Laden denied Involvement



Few people know that Osama bin Laden was trained by the CIA to fight the Russians during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Bin Laden was known to many US politicians, including George W. Bush and his National Security Advisor, Zbignew Brzenski .

Though I am sure Osama bin Laden would have loved to have been credited with 9-11, he denied any involvement of the attack. Why would a sworn enemy of the US deny involvement of the attack? Particularly when it would have assured him more publicity to take credit for the attack? Could it be that he didn't want to take credit for something he didn't do?

There are many other inconsistencies and questions concerning Osama bin Laden, including that there were credible reports that he died of liver failure in 2001, that he looked different in later "Al Qaeda" videos... to the point that they were surely of somebody other than Bin Laden, but that's material for another story.

Issue 8: Substantial Opinion Poll Shift


According to the new New York Times/CBS News poll, only 16% of Americans think the government is telling the truth about 9/11 and the intelligence prior to the attacks:

"Do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth, are mostly telling the truth but hiding something, or are they mostly lying?

  • Telling the truth 16%
  • Hiding something 53%
  • Mostly lying 28%
  • Not sure 3%"

The 84% figure mirrors other recent polls on the same issue. Over 80% supported the stance of Charlie Sheen when he went public with his opinions on 9/11 as an inside job.

A recent CNN poll found that the percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington rose from almost a third to almost half over the past four years. This latest poll shows that that figure has again risen exponentially and now stands at well over three quarters of the population.
