9/11 Doubts Seep into the Mainstream as Evidence Accumulates

The most significant expert may turn out to be Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, the widely respected honorary president of the Italian Supreme Court and legendary mafia hunter who lost his brother in a revenge attack.


(LONDON) - As the annual 9/11 remembrance draws to a close, the world is as split as ever. Not only on whether the Afghan and Iraq invasions were justified, but between those who accept Washington's official 9/11 story and those who do not.

Under the mainstream media radar, the number of those who do not is steadily increasing, forming substantial majorities in places like Pakistan and Egypt and significant minorities even in NATO's heartland countries, France, the UK and the US itself. The issue is not whether, despite his denials, Osama Bin Laden might have wanted to organise the 9/11 attacks but whether Al Qaeda actually had the capability to infiltrate 19 terrorists into the US, including some very well known to the CIA, and the four highly skilled pilots necessary to pull off the spectacular coup. Up to then Al Qaeda's biggest success was setting off two truck bombs in East Africa. (1)

The stereotype promoted by the corporate media of a 9/11 sceptic, a badly educated redneck watching Fox News in a trailer park, could hardly be further from the truth. The website Patriot's Question 9/11 lists hundreds of University Professors, over a thousand architects and engineers and hundreds of aviation professionals who have spoken out against the official 9/11 story. (8)

The most significant expert may turn out to be Judge Ferdinando Imposimato, the widely respected honorary president of the Italian Supreme Court and legendary mafia hunter who lost his brother in a revenge attack. Imposimato has written to the Journal of 9/11 Studies announcing his intention to bring a case before the International Criminal Court citing key figures in the US administration for involvement in the execution of the 9/11 attacks. (2)

Imposimato's take has received indirect support from people close to the heart of Washington's power elite. Richard Clarke, White House anti-terror czar at the time, has confirmed what researcher Kevin Fenton has established based on a meticulous examination of recently released official reports. Someone at the top of the CIA "made a decision" to stand down the FBI and the CIA, allowing the alleged hijackers a free run in the US when they would otherwise have been arrested and the plot foiled. (9)

Meanwhile the 9/11 truth movement continues with a drip, drip of new research. This year we have seen nothing on the scale of the revelations of iron spheres and uncombusted nanothermite in the dust at Ground Zero, strong indicators that the Twin Towers' spectacular collapses on live TV were caused by something a lot hotter than diesel fuel fires. But there are significant developments nonetheless.

Scientist Kevin Ryan was fired from work some time ago after he went public saying his employer Underwriters Laboratories, the company which had certified the quality of the steel used in the World Trade Centre, was involved in creating fake computer simulations to help support the official story that the fires were sufficiently hot to cause the disastrous collapse of three skyscrapers. He has since been beavering away at various aspects of the 9/11 story.

This year Ryan has released an analysis of the changes that the 9/11 events have brought to the US building industry. If the official story is to be believed, 9/11 was an architectural and engineering disaster. Buildings expressly designed to withstand a high speed jet impact and subsequent fire failed spectacularly. This disaster should have led to an urgent and exhaustive inquiry with many action points for other buildings of the same construction. Instead, says Ryan, nothing like that happened.The US engineering community has acted as though it does not believe the official 9/11 story any more than the alleged conspiracy theorists in their trailer parks. (3)

Meanwhile the US Public Broadcasting System became the conduit for the latest film from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth: Explosive Evidence - The Experts Speak Out, with downloads nationally pushing Bill Clinton's Convention Speech into third place, an astonishing success for a topic the mainstream media as usual were entirely deaf to (4). The film has a section in which psychologists and counsellors explain why the media and sections of the public are so reluctant to doubt an official story that might, from another government, seem highly unlikely if not absurd. The reasons come down to trauma, belief in authority and a phenomenon psychologists call cognitive dissonance. For every trailer park dissident there are several other citizens with a very strong desire to believe in authority, especially after the terrifying circumstances and unprecedented media barrage of 9/11. Confronted with contradictory evidence some time later, such people suffer from painful cognitive dissonance and often resort to denial.

An example of cognitive dissonance occurred last week on CNN when Piers Morgan tried to dismiss Jesse Ventura, a maverick politician and broadcaster. Morgan clearly knew little about the issue and could only say the suggestion of an inside job was "preposterous". The studio audience applauded Ventura. (10)

Another 9/11 researcher who goes by the name of Shoestring has presented a very detailed analysis of the various emergency offices that failed on the morning of 9/11. Probably the most shocking was the FBI's emergency management office in Washington, designed to cope with up to five major emergencies at one time, which knew nothing more than the TV channels. In the light of so much other bizarre activity - at the CIA, on the building investigation, the failure of Washington's Andrews Airbase to scramble any of its fighters for nearly two hours - the official 9/11 story of coincidence, surprise and cock-up begins to look less likely than some of the alternatives. (5)

But surely the post 9/11 war against Al Qaeda has produced a network of detainees, led by Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who have corroborated the official 9/11 story of a plot hatched in the caves of Afghanistan? Even the supine 911 Commission was disturbed by the CIA's refusal to allow them any contact with KSM or even his interrogators. As suspicions of systematic torture were confirmed in media leaks, the CIA illegally destroyed most of its own records, presumably to save its officers the worry of future prosecution. This ugly picture of detainees tortured into corroborating the official 9/11 story has been enhanced by another recent revelation from the Defence Department Inspector General: detainees were given truth drugs, or to put it in official language were drugged with powerful antipsychotic and other medications that “could impair an individual’s ability to provide accurate information". (6)

Last year's bombshell from the White House anti-terror czar at the time has produced a sequel. Richard Clarke has focused on the role of the CIA saying the then boss George Tenet must have known about the shocking unexplained decision to block three FBI field offices from acting against several 9/11 hijackers. Most researchers agree that the CIA's dedicated Osama Bin Laden Unit, kept secret until some years after 9/11, is the best place to start asking questions. Up to now they have focused on Bush favorite and torture advocate Cofer Black who oversaw the unit before moving on to make money as a principal in Blackwater, the mercenary company in Iraq.

Recently another CIA official has come into the frame: Black's deputy in the CIA's counter terror center, Enrique “Ricky” Prado. A book based on sources in the Miami Vice Squad describes Prado's apparent double life as CIA official and a member of Florida's Cuban mafia. The story was ignored by much of the mainstream media but carried in detail in Wired magazine, the Daily Beast and the UK's Daily Mail, which operates under stringent libel laws. (7)

When will the truth be known? Many agree that the planet's intelligence services probably already know. Iran's President Ahmedinajad's UN General Assembly speech calling for a new investigation into 9/11 was greeted with predictable outrage and the corporate media applauded when the NATO countries angrily walked out. But most countries did not walk out and with global opinion ever more sceptical as time goes by, this could prove a bad omen for Washington.

(1) In the UK a poll by ICM taken last year showed only seven percent were fully confident they had been told the whole story of the attacks, while in France a large minority thought the US government was involved in the attacks. Middle East experts as diverse as Alan Hart and Mohamed Heykal have both said that any Al Qaeda plot would have immediately been known to the many intelligence services who had agents in the ramshackle setup.


(3) Note: the media have featured someone claiming to be from the original engineers team who has said that planners never imagined a plane crash into the WTC but this is contradicted by the written record and there is scant evidence that this individual was in the role he claims.

Sad to see people unable to expose 911 truth as fraud. Falling for 911 truth claims, unable to expose anti-intellectual claptrap. Fooled by lies.

What?  Did you write all of that to say that you believe the physically impossible story from the Bush admin?  If so you need to pull your head out of the sand friend, don't be an enemy of truth.

Thanks, Salem News! There is disagreement among us truthers as to the method of demolition. Nanothermite has been criticized as being incapable of pulverizing concrete and too bulky to be covertly placed. Micro-nuclear weapons have been in development for over 60 years! There are radiation specific cancers among the WTC workers. Tritium levels up tp 55 times normal werre reported by USGS. The method of demolition is secondary. The mainstream media story of 9/11 is implausible, with or wiothout nanothermite. Thermite would have been very useful in the cleanup of the World Trade Center. Defenders of the official story may prove thermite was used in the cleanup, at some future date.

Martin Timothy September 26, 2012 9:07 pm (Pacific time) .. Missile at the WTC. .. Cruiser slams into the Pentagon!

Whereas on 11 September 2001, planes were flown into the WTC in New York, and a cruise missile slammed into the Pentagon, in attacks blamed on Islamic radicals, that became the impetus for the current and ongoing War on Terror!

Volumes of evidence inculpate Jews for the attacks .. 60,000 Jews were away from work, at the WTC complex in New York that day, who thereafter watched the immolation of their co workers live on television!

"Larry Silverstein, the lessor of the WTC on 9/11, got a phone call telling him not to show up to work, he called his daughter and she never showed up either."

Hey there Honey get rid of them blues
Daddy’s getting money you’ll be wearin’ new shoes
Turn on the telly it’ll be on the news
Stay at home today like the rest of the Jews

Cause today were gonna blow… Woo Woo /
Down the freakin buildings go Woo Woo /
We collect the dough Woo Woo /
Stay at home and watch the show… Woo Woo Woo Woodledoodledoo Rip it up Frank

Hey Man you say that four thou were away
That’s a lotta bodies at the end of the day
This is the way I see it don’t wanna be crass
There’s a whole lotta Jews thatta gotta get put on trial ///

Jews similarly fund abortion genocide, and speak bs re the Holocaust, while George Soros who is said to finance terrorism world wide, is believed to have been hands on, re the deportation of Hungarian Jews to the gas chambers, in a crime for which the German ppl were blamed.

Jews perpetrated similar atrocity in Russia and the Ukraine, during the Holodomor, and in the United States in the Great Depression .. they sponsor filth racists and criminals, in politics and the media, Barak Obama comes to mind, who is wanted for the 2007 murder of his two butt buddies, Donald Young and Nate Spencer in Chicago.

Who as tools, take out loans from Jewish banks, where after the nation's entire resource falls into their hands, and participate in illegal and unjust wars, similarly blackening their country's name, all on behalf of Jews, who remain culpable right down to street level in New York, for perpetrating the 911 attacks!

Jews were in overall command in NY on 911, whence NYPD choppers failed to attempt helicopter rescues, for those trapped in the upper levels of the burning towers, via Michael Chertoff then Head of Emergency Management.

Who in 2005 in his new role of Head of Homeland Security, he similarly left thousands to die, locked in the New Orleans Superdome post Hurricane Katrina .. the Jews are culpable not American citizens, those deluded souls who accepted Jew coin, and turned against their fellow man in the same illegal wars,

Who spurned the same hard evidence against Jews, and blandly and blindly accepted the bs version put out by the Zionist media, must go before the same properly conducted US courts, that are expected to hand down hundreds of thousands of death sentences, in response!

Daniel Johnson:"I think that if the truth came out and it turned out to be some sort of verifiable inside job, it would tear the country apart." So your opinion on my country is as relevant as your existence. 11 years later, no one has come forward TO SUPPORT some contrived fanatasy, oh not from you johnson, you are the typical marxist attempting to stir things up, but the attack was what it was, as will be your conclusion will be what it is. Peace canuck, and glad you have had a CONSERVATIVE TAKE OVER, AND GETTING STRONGER. I OWN PROPERTY IN SEVERAL LOCATIONS IN ALBERTA AND BC, AND ONLY HIRE AMERICAN CITIZENS. WE WILL BE TAKING OVER ALL OF CANADA WITHIN TWENTY YEARS. YOU WILL NOT BE AROUND. MAYBE LEAVE NOW, GO TO CUBA, WEAR A CHE' HOODIE. LOL P.S. I pack when I'm up there, and keep all my firearms there so I don't have to deal with them during border crossings. I do not worry about blowing away your criminals up there, and have noticed they are mostly runty whites and a few blacks in the urban areas. In time I expect the Islamic radicals will be acting out more, and then we will see what happens.

DJ: You should stay up on the news. A poll of a few days ago showed that Harper's disapproval rating is at 50%. He and his anti-democratic conservatives are losing the country irrevocably, month by month. Approval only 35%. Check it out:

Canadians have one tremendous global advantage. We're not Americans.

Ed Asner of the Screen Actors Guild has a great piece on YouTube called WTC 7. The one question you need to start with is "What happened to Building 7?" It was not hit by a plane but it was, as WTC owner Larry Silverstein said, "PULLED" professionally. If that is the case...who planned and planted the explosives that fast? In one day? And why did the building need to be "pulled." It wasn't struck by a plane. That will start your seach for the truth that will go as far as Bin Laden family being flown out of the country when the airplanes were all grounded across the US. Or how cell phone calls were made from airplanes when they said it was impossible to do so due to speed and distance. Then you did they know who did it so fast? Why were there war games of the exact event happening during the event? How can planes travel that far out of their line of travel without an F16 showing up to find out what's going on? It is all a big lie and boy did it rile up the boys. Shoot yourself in the foot and blame it on your enemy and watch as your family turns blood thirsty for revenge. Very smart stuff there...sorry we are all too stupid to figure it out.

@Christian, I remember that as well, there were 4 vans. All the vans belonged to "Urban Moving Systems" which was raided by the FBI. Why because it was front for the mossad. One of the vans even had a mural of a plane crashing into the WTC with 9/11 painted in the mural. I know sounds crazy, but it is true. I think we know who had a helping hand in this.

SKull September 23, 2012 5:13 pm (Pacific time)

Better late than never I suppose. This should have been obvious to anybody as soon as they started pretending fire had caused the towers to collapse. this claim is and has always been so absurd it still shocks me to this day that anybody anywhere ever believed it for as much as a second. 9/11 truther since 9/12-01.

SKull September 23, 2012 5:06 pm (Pacific time)

I can hardly believe it`s been 11 years before people start saying the bleeding obvious. If I, working as an extra in a mental hospital in Norway, could know that there was a cover up on 9/12 when the claim was made that no explosives were used, how can so many hundreds of thousands if not millions buy the ridiculous official version? I was threatened by a colleague the very next day when I told him that until a real investigation could take place we couldn`t bomb and invade countries at random in response, and that for all he knew it might as well be the CIA which is responsible. But he was a bit of a moron so I didn`t really care at the time, and just assumed anybody with an IQ above 85 even halfway paying attention would laugh loudly at the loons trying to peddle a physically impossible explanation. Boy was I wrong...

Tell me again about the passports: so the world trade towers collapsed leaving only dust, yet the passports of the Saudi hijackers were found in the rubble nearby within 24 hours?

DJ: Maybe they dropped them when they were running away.

Keep up the good work! More people are starting to wake up, and the MSM (especially television) is virtualy dead as a "trusted" news source. The NWO better step up their police State- we're winning the battle.

Good post Peterson, and thanks to Salem-news for keeping this issue open. No matter what a person believes, I am not a conspiracy nut, I simply have legitimate questions that those in authority wont answer.

Christian Petersen September 19, 2012 12:00 pm (Pacific time)

If the official story was true, that 911 happened because of a painful (statistically impossible) series of huge mistakes by government agencies at the perfect timing, then why didn't anyone at the heads of any of these agencies involved get fired at least? Maybe demoted? How safe am I supposed to feel with an organization like that in charge of our national security? They don't even fire people when they make mistakes that huge? Most people can get fired from their jobs for even saying the wrong thing, let alone failing so miserably at your only purpose. Everything I see about the government makes me think they were happy that it happened, just like the dancing Israelis in NYC that were filming the planes as they came in. Before anyone would have known that it was about to happen. They got turned in to police right away obviously because they were dancing and celebrating after the plane went into the tower. People thought they were middle easterners involved in the plot. Then they got released to go home to Israel. The truck bombs of 911 are also the clencher for me. No charges for guys who supposedly got caught red handed with a van filled with bombs on 911? Give me a break. I remember seeing this on tv too, then kinda wondered why nothing every happened with it. This video has witness interviews, police radio, news reports about the dancing Israelis and truck bombs. It's only 7 1/2 minutes you should watch it if you haven't heard about this because they covered it up.
