planes tragically crashed on September 11, 2001, the course of
history was inalterably changed. Yet questions about what actually
happened on that fateful day are asked with increasing frequency, even by
some top government officials and other respected public leaders. Read
the statements below (links to sources provided) from a former chief economist
of President George W. Bush, an assistant secretary of the Treasury under
President Reagan, a U.S. Senator, a Congresswoman, a renowned
theologian, the head of advanced space programs for the Department of Defense
under Reagan, a British cabinet minister under Prime Minister Tony Blair,
these prominent leaders now claims that there are serious problems with the
official government story of 9/11. Some of these highly respected individuals
even believe that 9/11 may have been an inside job. It can be very uncomfortable
to even consider the possibility that certain individuals within government
were involved either in allowing the attacks to happen, or in some way facilitating
them in order to forward their hidden
agendas. Yet the facts increasingly point in that direction.
media has sadly failed to give significant coverage to the serious questions
being raised by these public figures. We invite you to have the courage to
listen to their words and explore this vital topic, and then to share this
powerful information with your friends. If we act now, we can powerfully work
together to call for a truly independent investigation and to strengthen democracy
in our nation and our world. For an abundance of reliable, verifiable information

Hoover Institute describes Roberts
Paul Craig Roberts is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. During 1981–82,
he served as assistant secretary of the Treasury for economic policy. He was
awarded the Treasury Department's Meritorious Service Award for "his
outstanding contributions to the formulation of United States economic policy."
A former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal and columnist for
Business Week...the Forbes Media Guide ranked him as one of its top seven
journalists. He has testified before committees of Congress on 30 occasions.
- Las Vegas Tribune's July 29, 2005 article on Roberts
he hasn't changed his political ideology or jumped from the Republican-conservative
ship but "just can't respect a party leadership who doesn't respect the
truth." "I guess the real story about 9/11 is about what the people
are actually saying. I've gotten hundreds of emails in response to my columns
and many of them talk about not getting the truth from the government or the
media about what really happened at the World Trade Center. I know many
qualified engineers and scientists have said the WTC collapsed from explosives.

In 1977, Dr.
Robert M. Bowman, head of advanced space programs for the Department of Defense

are convinced that George W. Bush knew what was going to happen and purposely
allowed it to happen so he and his neo-conservative buddies could have the
"new Pearl Harbor" they needed to justify their wars against Afghanistan and
Iraq. Others go further. They are absolutely sure Cheney and company actually
planned and carried out the attack. What is so disturbing is that their
arguments are quite convincing. If an enormous cloud of suspicion is not to
be permanently over the head of our government, the Bush Administration must
"come clean," releasing information thus far withheld from the American people.
Why did John
Ashcroft and top Pentagon
officials cancel plans to fly commercial airlines the morning of 9/11?
If they knew what was about to happen, why wasn't it stopped? Who made all
the millions of dollars selling
short United and American Airlines [stock] just before 9/11? Why weren't
the hijacked airliners intercepted by jet fighters and shot down before they
could fly into the WTC and Pentagon? What did the air
traffic controllers say, and to whom? Why did the FBI impound the tapes
of those conversations? Why has the public never been told what was on them?
Why weren't the congressional investigators told? If it was just a matter
of incompetence or somebody not doing their job, why
hasn't anyone been fired or reprimanded?

for the creation of a global Pax Americana was drawn up for Dick Cheney (now
vice-president), Donald Rumsfeld (defence secretary), Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld's
deputy), Jeb Bush (George Bush's younger brother) and Lewis Libby (Cheney's
chief of staff). The document, entitled Rebuilding America's Defences, was
written in September 2000 by the neoconservative think tank, Project
for the New American Century (PNAC). The information provided by European
intelligence services prior to 9/11 was so extensive that it is no longer
possible for either the CIA or FBI to assert a defence of incompetence. Fifteen
of the 9/11 hijackers obtained their visas in Saudi Arabia. Michael Springman,
the former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah, has stated that since
1987 the CIA had been illicitly issuing
visas to unqualified applicants from the Middle East and bringing them
to the US for training in terrorism for the Afghan war in collaboration with
Bin Laden (BBC,
November 6 2001). It seems this operation continued after the Afghan war
for other purposes. It is also reported that five of the hijackers
received training at secure US military installations in the 1990s (Newsweek,
September 15 2001) The conclusion of all this analysis must surely
be that the "global war on terrorism" has the hallmarks of a political
myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda - the US
goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command over the oil
supplies required to drive the whole project.

U.S. Senator Mark Dayton
July 31, 2004, The Star-Tribune
(Minneapolis - St. Paul)
Sen. Mark Dayton,
D-Minn., charged...that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the
North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) have covered up "catastrophic
failures" that left the nation vulnerable during the Sept. 11 hijackings.
"For almost three years now, NORAD officials and FAA officials have been
able to hide their critical
failures that left this country defenseless during two of the worst hours
in our history," Dayton declared during a Senate Governmental Affairs
Committee hearing. Dayton said NORAD officials "lied to the American
people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create
a false impression of competence, communication and protection of the American

McKinney led a Capitol Hill hearing Friday [July 22, 2005] on whether the
Bush administration was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
"What we are doing is asking the unanswered
questions of the 9/11 families," McKinney...said during the proceedings.
The eight-hour hearing, timed to mark the first anniversary of the release
of the Sept. 11 commission's report on the attacks, drew dozens of contrarians
and conspiracy theorists who suggest President Bush purposely ignored
warnings or may even have had a hand in the attack — claims participants
said the commission ignored. "Congresswoman McKinney is viewed as a contrarian,"
panelist Melvin Goodman, a former CIA official, said. "And I hope someday
her views will be considered conventional wisdom."
Though the mainstream press largely failed to report on this important hearing,
C-SPAN did air all eight hours of testimony given on August
31st and Sept.
2nd (because of Hurricane Katrina, part two was aired on C-SPAN 2), both
at 8 PM. For the transcript and an excellent C-SPAN video of McKinney asking the hard questions in Congress, click here.

emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, 66-year-old
David Ray Griffin...compiled a summary of material arguing against the
accepted story that 19 hijackers sent by Osama bin Laden took the aviation
system and the U.S. military by surprise that awful day in his 2004 book "The
New Pearl Harbor." He recently followed up with the book "The
9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions," a critique of
the Kean commission document. "For the first year and a half I just
accepted the conventional view. When a colleague suggested to me about
a year after 9/11 that he was convinced our own government or forces within
our own government had arranged it, I didn't accept that. Then several months
later another colleague sent me [a link to] a
website that had a
timeline. Once I started reading that and saw all those stories drawn
from mainstream sources that contradicted the official account, I decided
I needed to look into it more carefully, and the more I looked, the worse
it got. The fact that Building
7 [a 47-story skyscraper in the WTC complex] collapsed when it had not
been hit by an airplane, and collapsed in seven or eight seconds, that's a
smoking gun. The fact that standard operating procedures were not followed
that morning, and we've gotten three different stories now by the U.S. military
as to why they did
not intercept the planes, that's a smoking gun. There was a Zogby
poll in New York. The question asked was, do you believe the government
had advance knowledge of the attacks and consciously let them happen? Forty-nine
percent in New York City said yes.
On May 7, 2005, Dr. Griffin, who has authored or edited over
two dozen scholarly books, was featured on C-SPAN

From the first,
the Bush Administration resisted
investigation and disclosure. Families of September 11 victims were forced
to lobby the administration and Congress for a full and independent inquiry.
They fought for 14 months, blocked
every step of the way by the White House. The families demanded a full
investigation, posing nearly 400 questions to the Kean Commission. The commissioners
said they welcomed these queries. But their final report ignored most of the
unanswered questions. Still posted
on the website of the September 11 Family Steering Committee, these questions
are a stark reminder of the Kean Commission's failures. Until the unanswered
questions about 9/11 are laid to rest, by a truly independent investigation
that does not declare legitimate avenues of inquiry off-limits, they will
continue to haunt our country.
