What an odd place to put that POS article. WTF! The evidence that Bush either was involved in or at least knew about either at the time or shortly afterwords is so public and so convincing (at least to me) as to preclude an article like that. Rather like trying to sell the *magic bullet* theory after all these years and tests and retests.
The trouble with this article is it avoids the obvious facts and points out the more *pod people* theories, thus damning the whole lot, the good with the bad. THis reminds me of Bush's mysterious AWOL episode, where 100's of legitiment documents were as a group discarded because of ONE forgery (which was late coming onto the scene, anyway).
Didn't Popular Mechanics try this lamest of attempts to back the *official story*?
While I have no doubt we will never know what happened on 9-11, there is plenty of evidence to support the idea that Israel was involved, and that SOMEONE in the upper levels of the federal government was at the very least used, if not activly participating.
NORAD stood down, when they did launch they launched at 30% speed. I have been looking for some time for NORAD records on intercepts, I can't imgine MORAD would perform so badly on two jets in one day, or three, or at last 4, one over Washington. How can ANYONE buy that? I am not a mathematician and I can tell you the probability of that ALL happening in ONE day is a *raised to the Nth* kinda number. NORAD doesn't *stand down* unless they are told to, and NORAD pilots on hot calls do not fly at 1/3 their max speed on intercepts. Even saying it is possible that ONE flight group did (the first) the second wouldn't have. Use some common sense here.
Add to this, the uncommon *fact* that the DoD was doing excersizes that day, the EXACT scenerio at the EXACT time. What are the chances of that? Unless you knew when the DoD was going to do it.
More bizarre is the film of the school. One building hit, ok the Secret Service lets it go, maybe a freak accident, and not serious enough to nab the POTUS and dump on AF-1 for a quick flight to anywhere else. BUT 2!!! Can we be serious here? The prez is in a highly public and known location and TWO jets have hit BOTH the WTC buildings. The Agents do NOTHING! They let Bush talk about goats.
Two facts, NORAD acted in a very strange and improbable way, and the Secret Service acted in a very strange and improbable way. Chance of this occuring in one 24 hour period?
6 Israelis are picked up FILMING the WTC collapse, and seem to be having a good time doing it. Their van checks positive for explosives, and has a fair amount of cash stuffed in a sock in it. The company they work for closes immediately and the owner scurries to Israel. All the suspects are released, and also return to Israel. They had some lame excuse for being there.
Said one of the men, denying that they were laughing or happy on the morning of Sept. 11, "The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event."
Hmm. Wait it doesn't stop there! The FBI had this to say!
However, a counterintelligence investigation by the FBI concluded that at least two of them were in fact Mossad operatives, according to the former American official, who said he was regularly briefed on the investigation by two separate law enforcement officials.
"The assessment was that Urban Moving Systems was a front for the Mossad and operatives employed by it," he said. "The conclusion of the FBI was that they were spying on local Arabs but that they could leave because they did not know anything about 9/11."
Now, back to Bush. Outside the hotel in Fl, it is 8:35 when his motorcade leaves for the school.At 8:46 we have the first hit At 8:55 he arrives at the school.
In an interview on CNN shortly after he states
Well, Jordan (ph), you're not going to believe what state I was in when I heard about the terrorist attack. I was in Florida. And my chief of staff, Andy Card -- actually I was in a classroom talking about a reading program that works. And I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower -- the TV was obviously on, and I use to fly myself, and I said, "There's one terrible pilot." And I said, "It must have been a horrible accident."
He was IN the classroom when the second plane hit, we all see Card tell him about it. So umm...wtf is he watching before he goes in?
(BTW, he wasn't watching at the school, the staff there has confirmed that. Besides the time is wrong. Further, the thought *what a terrible pilot* watching the second crash, after the fact, is just too unreasonable for someone who has all the resources of the US at his fingertips.)
Notice I have not used any *conspiracy theory* material yet, this is all readily available public information.
This is enough information for me to conclude that something was going on in the Admin on 9-11.
I assume Bush was watching what the Israeli were filming, in his Limo, as he drove to the school. There was NO FILM of the first crash. That was all found days later. If he saw it (and he says he did), then am I wrong to conclude that something about 6 Mossad agents filming the occasion might be his source? Circumstancial, but worth of investigation, I think.
