3/28    So how many people believe the U.S. was involved in bringing
        down the WTC in order to create endless oilwar as well as blind
        flag waving/rights-waiving obeissance etc?
        \_ How many?  Only the stupid and the paranoid ones.  Count them up.
        \_ It was the Mossad.
           \_ you misspelled "yermom."
           \_ Sure, blame the Jews.  You know it was the ANC.
        \_ The US didn't do it, but knew it was going to happen
           and turned a blind eye to the possiblity:

                 in U.S. entering the Vietnam War) -- the government
                 admits this openly now.
                 \_ USS Maine and the Spanish American War, USS Greer
                    and WWI, the list goes on.
                    \_ You mean USS Greer/WWII, right? What is odd
                       about that incident? UBoats sank quite a few US
                 \_ Greer was WWI. She was the first ship fired upon
                    by germans, but this was in self defense (the
                       destroyers before the US entry. Do you think they
                       were all hoaxes or something?
                       \_ Greer was WWI. She was the first navy ship fired
                          on by germans, but this was in self defense (the
                          Greer was depth charging the Uboat in question)
                          Wilson "forgot" that the Greer was under orders
                          to depth charge Uboats when we went before congress
                          and urged the US entry into WWI. It wasn't exactly
                          lying, but it was shady.

                             Maybe the same incident happened in both
                             wars with the same ship, but I kind of doubt
                             it.

           \_ yeah all those dotcommers outa work could cause a lot
              of hell if they identified the real problem
              \_ Actually this was a problem for most large corporations.
                 Once the supply of labor was getting short, costs went
                 up. When the dotcoms who couldn't outlast a yearlong
                 recession and died, the supply of labor shot up and
                 corporation costs have gone down.
        \_ Not that I'm discounting the theory, but why is there a
           conspiracy theory for every major event in history?  Next thing
           you know, the gov't conspired to bring the asteroid in to kill
           off the dinosaurs.
           \_ Cuz government by definition IS a conspiracy, one which is
              well-funded and controls who the "rules" apply to and which
              commits every action with social control and the maintaining
              power (gained via the conspiracy of government) as its
              paramount concern.  Off-the-shelf formulas are used frequently.

           \_ The government bringing in asteroids to kill the dinosaurs?

Part 1: Warnings in advance By Patrick Martin 16 January 2002 36 Use this version to print | 37 Send this link by email | 38 Email the author See 39 Part 2: Watching the hijackers, 40 Part 3: The United States and Mideast terrorism, and 41 Part 4: The refusal to investigate It is not necessary to postulate an all-embracing conspiracy, extending from the White House to the airline security personnel who let the armed hijackers board the planes, to believe that there is much more to the story of the September 11 attacks than the American public has been told so far. Certainly the least likely and least credible explanation of that day's events is that the vast US national security apparatus was entirely unaware of the activities of the hijackers until the airliners slammed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon. According to this official version, voiced most crudely by FBI Director Robert Mueller immediately after the event, no one in the US government had the slightest idea of the identities of the September 11 hijackers, the methods they would employ, or the targets they would choose. A careful review of the information that has come to light, in bits and pieces, since September 11, demonstrates that these claims are not merely tenuous, but clearly, obviously and knowingly false. The case of Zacarias Moussaoui " 42 The strange case of Zacarias Moussaoui: FBI refused to investigate man charged in September 11 attacks" is only the most glaring evidence that the September 11 terrorist attacks represent, not merely a colossal failure on the part of the FBI and CIA, but a refusal to act that has no legitimate explanation. Not only were there general warnings of the likelihood of suicide hijackings, but several of the hijackers, including the man alleged to be the principal organizer, Mohammed Atta, were under active surveillance by US agents. It is not too much to say that the terrorists were only able to accomplish their murderous and destructive mission because US intelligence agencies ignored repeated warnings, refused to carry out elementary defensive actions and manifested a seeming indifference to the prospect of a major terrorist attack on American soil. Added to that is the refusal of any branch of the US government to conduct any probe into the circumstances of an attack which killed more American civilians on a single day than any other act of violence in US history. There has been no serious effort in the four months since September 11 to investigate, learn lessons and assign responsibility. This by itself is a demonstration that there are highly placed people in Washington with a great deal to hide. Warnings from foreign governments The governments of at least four countries--Germany, Egypt, Russia and Israel--gave specific warnings to the US of an impending terrorist attack in the months preceding September 11. These alerts, while fragmentary, not only combined to foretell the scale of the attack and its main target, but indicated that hijacked commercial aircraft would be the weapon of choice. Echelon is operated jointly by the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand, although its existence is not officially admitted. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak told the French newspaper Le Figaro that the warning was originally delivered just before the G-8 summit in Genoa. It was taken seriously enough that antiaircraft batteries were stationed around Christopher Columbus Airport in the Italian city. According to Mubarak, bin Laden "spoke of assassinating President Bush and other heads of state in Genoa. It was a question of an airplane stuffed with explosives. In an interview September 15 with MSNBC, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that he had ordered Russian intelligence in August to warn the US government "in the strongest possible terms" of imminent attacks on airports and government buildings. About the same time, tighter security measures were ordered at the World Trade Center, for unexplained reasons. The CIA and FBI had issued warnings about likely attacks on American military bases or embassies in the Middle East, Europe and Asia. On September 7 the US Department of State issued a worldwide alert about an impending attack by bin Laden followers, although it was focused on US-related targets in east Asia, especially Japan, not within the US itself. As the ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Richard Shelby, admitted, "This obviously was a failure of great dimension. The US government was being repeatedly alerted to the danger of devastating attacks using hijacked commercial aircraft, yet the FBI decided to conduct no serious investigation into a man, believed by French intelligence to be linked to Osama bin Laden, who wanted to learn how to steer a 747 jumbo jet, but not to take off or land. Moussaoui was not even turned over to the FBI by the Immigration and Naturalization Service until after September 11. US investigations and concerns Despite claims that US intelligence agencies had not considered the possibility of suicide attacks involving commercial airliners before September 11, there were many indications of such concerns on the part of the American government over a period of eight years. An expert panel commissioned by the Pentagon in 1993 discussed how an airplane could be used to bomb national landmarks. Doug Menarchik, who organized the $150,000 study for the Defense Department's Office of Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict. A draft was circulated through the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but senior agency officials ultimately decided against a public release. Expected Different Hit, Chemical, Germ Agents Focus of Preparations," by Jo Warrick and Joe Stephens) Three incidents of attempted attacks on buildings using airplanes took place during 1994. The first, in April of that year, involved a Federal Express flight engineer who was facing dismissal. He boarded a DC-10 as a passenger and invaded the cockpit, planning to crash the plane into a company building in Memphis, but was overpowered by the crew. The second came that September, when a lone pilot crashed a stolen single-engine Cessna into a tree on the White House grounds just short of the president's bedroom. The third was the December hijacking of an Air France flight in Algiers by the Armed Islamic Group. The hijackers had the plane land in Marseilles and ordered it loaded with 27 tons of fuel, three times the amount required to reach Paris. He told them of plans to plant timed explosive devices on 11 US airliners simultaneously, and to crash-land an airplane into CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The preparations were so far advanced that Murad detailed the specific flights targeted, most of them trans-Pacific flights which would explode over the ocean. Murad had attended flying schools in the United States, earned a commercial pilot's license, and told investigators he was to fly the plane into CIA headquarters. Another Islamic fundamentalist was to fly a second plane into the Pentagon. On the flight, Yousef reportedly boasted to FBI agent Brian Parr and the other agents guarding him that he had narrowly missed several opportunities to blow up a dozen airliners on a single day over the Pacific and to carry out a kamikaze-type suicide attack on CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Yousef was referring to the same plot for which Abdul Hakim Murad had been arrested in the Philippines. Murad was extradited to the United States, where his testimony played a major role in Yousef's trial and conviction. Black Hawk helicopters and US Customs Service jets were deployed to intercept suspicious aircraft in the skies over the Olympic venues. Agents monitored crop-duster flights within hundreds of miles of downtown Atlanta. Law enforcement agents also fanned out to regional airports throughout northern Georgia "to make sure nobody hijacked a small aircraft and tried to attack one of the venues," said Woody Johnson, the FBI agent in charge of the Atlanta office at the time. From July 6 through the end of the Games on August 11, the FAA banned a...

Page 114 PAPER XXIX "This was piracy-legally and morally. Destroyer GREER, proceeding in full daylight toward Iceland, had reached a point southeast of Greenland. The submarine deliberately fired a torpedo at the GREER, followed later by another torpedo attack. In spite of what Hitler's propaganda bureau has invented, and in spite of what any American obstructionist organization may prefer to believe, I tell you the blunt fact that the German submarine fired first upon this American destroyer without warning, and with deliberate design to sink her. Our destroyer, at the time, was in waters which the Government of the United States had declared to be waters of self-defense-surrounding outposts of American protection in the Atlantic. In the north, outposts have been established by us in Iceland, Greenland, Labrador, and Newfoundland. Through these waters there pass many ships of many flags. They bear food and other supplies to civilians and they bear materiel of war, for which the people of the United States are spending billions of dollars, and which, by congressional action, they have declared to be essential for the defense of their own land. The United States destroyer, when attacked, was proceeding on a legitimate mission. If the destroyer was visible to the submarine when the torpedo was fired, then the attack was a deliberate attempt by the Nazis to sink a clearly identified American warship. On the other hand, if the submarine was beneath the surface and, with the aid of its listening devices, fired in the direction of the sound of the American destroyer without even taking the trouble to learn its identity-as the official German communique would indicate-then the attack was even more outrageous. For it indicates a policy of indiscriminate violence against any vessel sailing the seas, belligerent or non-belligerent. It was not the first nor the last act of piracy which the Nazi government has committed against the American flag in this war. A few months ago an American-flag merchant ship, the ROBIN MOOR, was sunk by a Nazi submarine in the middle of the South Atlantic under circumstances violating long-established international law and every principle of humanity. The passengers and the crew were forced into open boats hundreds of miles from land, in direct violation of international agreements signed by the Government of Germany. No apology, no allegation of mistake, no offer of reparations has come from the Nazi government. In July 1941 an American battleship in North American waters was followed by a submarine, which for a long time sought to maneuver itself into a position of attack. No British or American submarines were within hundreds of miles of this spot at the time, so the nationality of the submarine 1S clear. Five days ago a United States Navy ship on patrol picked up three survivors of an American-owned ship operating under the flag of our sister Republic of Panama-the steamship SESSA. On August 17 she had been first torpedoed without warning, and then shelled, near Greenland, while carrying civilian supplies to Iceland. It is feared that the other members of her crew have been drowned. In view of the established presence of German submarines in this vicinity, there can be no reasonable doubt as to the identity of the attacker. Five days ago another United States merchant ship, the STEEL SEAFARER, was sunk by a German aircraft in the Red Sea 220 miles south of Suez. Four of the vessels sunk or attacked flew the American flag and were clearly identifiable. In the fifth case, the vessel sunk clearly carried the flag of Panama. In the face of all this, we Americans are keeping our feet on the ground. Our type of democratic civilization has outgrown the thought of feeling compelled to fight some other nation by reason of any single piratical attack on one of our ships. We are not becoming hysterical or losing our sense of proportion. Therefore, what I am thinking and saying does not relate to any isolated episode. Instead, we Americans are taking a long-range point of view in regard to certain fundamentals and to a series of events on land and on sea which must be considered as a whole-as a part of a world pattern. It would be unworthy of a great nation to exaggerate an isolated incident, or to become inflamed by some one act of violence. But it would be inexcusable folly to minimize such incidents in the face of evidence which makes it clear that the incident is not isolated, but part of a general plan. The important truth is that these acts of international lawlessness are a manifestation of a design which has been made clear to the American people for a long time. It is the Nazi design to abolish the freedom of the seas, and to acquire absolute control and domination of the seas for themselves. For with control of the seas in their own hands, the way can become clear for their next step-domination of the United States and the Western Hemisphere by force. Under Nazi control of the seas, no Page 116 merchant ship of the United States or of any other American republic would be free to carry on any peaceful commerce, except by the condescending grace of this foreign and tyrannical power. The Atlantic Ocean which has been, and which should always be, a free and friendly highway for us would then become a deadly menace to the commerce of the United States, to the coasts of the United States, and to the inland cities of the United States. The Hitler government, in defiance of the laws of the sea and of the recognized rights of all other nations, has presumed to declare, on paper, that great areas of the seas-even including a vast expanse lying in the Western Hemisphere-are to be closed, and that no ships may enter them for any purpose, except at peril of being sunk. Actually they are sinking ships at will and without warning in widely separated areas both within and far outside of these far-flung pretended zones. This Nazi attempt to seize control of the oceans is but a counterpart of the Nazi plots now being carried on throughout the Western Hemisphere, all designed toward the same end. For Hitler's advance guards-not only his avowed agents but also his dupes among us-have sought to make ready for him footholds and bridgeheads in the New World, to be used as soon as he has gained control of the oceans. His intrigues, his plots, his machinations, his sabotage in this New World are all known to the Government of the United States. Last year a plot to seize the Government of Uruguay was smashed by the prompt action of that country, which was supported in full by her American neighbors. A like plot was then hatching in Argentina, and that Government has carefully and wisely blocked it at every point. More recently an endeavor was made to subvert the Government of Bolivia. Within the past few weeks the discovery was made of secret air landing fields in Colombia within easy range of the Panama Canal. To be ultimately successful in world mastery Hitler knows that he must get control of the seas. He must first destroy the bridge of ships which we are building across the Atlantic, over which we shall continue to roll the implements of war to help destroy him and all his works in the end. It must be explained again and again to people who like to think of the United States Navy as an invincible protection that this can be true only if the British Navy survives. For if the world outside the Americas falls under Axis domination, the shipbuilding facilities which the Axis Powers would then possess in all of Europe, in the British Isles, and in the Far East would be much greater than all the shipbuilding facilities and potentialities of all the Americas-not only greater but two or three times greater. Even if the United States threw all its resources into such a situation, seeking to double and even redouble the size of our Navy, the Axis Powers, in control of the rest of the world, would have the manpower and the physical resources to out-build us several times over. It is time for all Americans of all the Americas to stop being deluded by the romantic notion that the Americas can go on living happily and peacefully in a Nazi-dominate...

See the List of Mirror Sites There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation. What we choose to put on the air, what we think is a page one story, what our priorities are. I would not be fooled by the old myth that reporting is about objectivity. Deciding what is news is the most subjective of acts and it is probably the most important thing that we do. To fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and or lives are all the property of other men. Ideology - that is what gives devildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes, so that he won't hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old system and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new one. There will be wars and holocausts and genocides as long as God is portrayed and thought of as a tight-minded legislator, a feudal lord, an offended King, a hypersensitive Artisan - even if church managers condescendingly tack onto that ridiculous list the not-very-convincing footnote that He is also loving. As long as people dream that they are insecure and needy in some sort of eternal jeopardy, there will be atrocities. But as the human race grows up spiritually, and as individuals gain a personal experience of the God they have been worshipping in fear, they will recognize that much of their theology and philosophy is built on nightmares. I suddenly found myself unwilling to sit it out in the mountains of Utah. I wanted to play an active role in the process of the world's awakening.

Francisco Gil-White know that he will not be reappointed to a second three-year contract. This means Gil-White, who is Deputy Editor of Emperor's Clothes, has been fired. He vows he will fight this attempt to punish him for telling the truth about 59 Sri Lanka, 60 Serbia and 61 Israel, taking this case to the Supreme Court if necessary. University Dean Sam Preston is trying to pretend that it makes a difference that perhaps U of Penn will extend Gil-White's current four year contract by one year, if the Trustees permit it. The crucial matter is this: by refusing Gil-White the second contract, for three years, Prof. When his current contract expires, he will have to find another job. Adding a touch that combines surrealism and hypocrisy, in his letter to Prof. Gil-White, Dean Preston avoids the obvious question, 'Why has Prof. Then why has Gil-White's second tenure-track contract (for three years) been rejected? He did not comment on - or even speak to Gil-White about - the documented charge that he has been persecuted (and is now being fired, 63 as predicted) for his political beliefs. Ian Lustick and the other directors of the Asch Center have failed to even point out any error in Gil-White's research shows that they are persecuting him for political reasons. To give readers a better idea of who it is U of Penn is firing, we are reposting a debate, featuring Prof. Gil-White versus three other academics, on suicide terror and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Gil-White demonstrates that even with a numerical advantage, the pro-PLO side cannot defend its claims. After being defeated time and again, they resort to deleting Prof. Ian Lustick and the other apologists for terror who run the Solomon Asch Center at U of Penn would understand. Ian Pitchford, Basel Saleh Overview Jared Israel - A Debate Worth Reading. Includes the text of the email exchange between Francisco Gil-White and the debate moderator, who removed Gil-White's last contribution. Separating terrorist organizations into grievance-driven and ideology-driven groups. Gil-white argues that the Palestinian movement as we know it was organized by Nazis, and that the Nazi attitude towards Jews is at the core of PLO and Hamas ideology. Pitchford offers an interpretation of Israeli history in which Jewish misdeeds are the cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Atran denies that Grand Mufti Hajj Amin, father of the Palestinian movement, was a colonial creation and a devotee of Hitler. According to Atran, Hajj Amin 1) detested Hitler and 2) opposed British colonialism. Atran argues that Hajj Amin was an anti-Nazi and an opponent of British colonialism. Gil-white argues that Arafat has mobilized all of the Palestinian Authority resources to indoctrinate Palestinian youth to view suicide terror against Jews as the noblest achievement on earth. Gil-White answer's Pitchford's challenge, arguing that suicide terrorism is a political strategy calculated to cast the Jewish people as 'oppressors' and Palestinian Arabs as 'victims'. Nazi antisemitism, from which the current Palestinian movement descended, used precisely this strategy. Opponents of the war said no, they were fleeing NATO bombs. It helps explain what is happening in the West Bank and Gaza, in Chechnya, and in other so-called trouble spots. Two years ago we documented NATO/UN sponsorship of the same Albanian terrorists who this week launched a massive pogrom against the Serbian people still living in Kosovo. This is the start of an EC project, bringing to light suppressed documents that challenge current beliefs about this key period in Arab-Israeli relations, 1947-1949.

We will be posting several articles about this and urge our readers to express their views. But it was NATO and the UN who groomed those terrorists and put them in power! Article from Sunday Mirror Comments by Jared Israel Posted 10 December 2003 Tidal wave of antisemitism: are we in 1931? This report is much more serious than we thought based on the 117 Financial Times article. First, the antisemitic attacks go way beyond immigrant Muslim communities. They are being incited by the 'respectable' press with, for example, Israel-as-crucifier attacks in 118 Aftonbladet in Sweden and 119 La Stampa in Italy. After being suppressed, the Report was grudgingly released by the EU, complete with three mind-numbing introductions. The important part is the information about what's happening in 14 European countries, so we've set up that section (most of the report and all the information) as 120 one large file. We want very much to distribute this and some of our own texts on antisemitism in French, Italian, Polish, Russian, other languages.

Francisco Gil-White's 142 analysis of NATO's Rambouillet strategy. A back-and-forth debate that we think reveals a mental malady afflicting academia. Francisco Gil-White was recently invited to participate in an academic discussion of suicide bombing on the "Interdisciplines" Website. This developed into a sharp, general debate on the Arab-Israeli conflict between Prof. We've collected 14 of the most revealing and interesting posts. Whatever your current opinions about the Middle East, this debate is a must-read. You will see the pro-PLO arguments which dominate US universities in head-to-head combat with the arguments of an anti-PLO scholar, Prof. It is especially educational for people who, like the editors of Emperor's Clothes, used to support the PLO because they were swayed by emotional arguments instead of studying the record. The three pro-PLO academics put forward widely held beliefs, aggressively asserting that they are based on established fact - only to have said "facts" exploded by Gil-White. Gil-White develops a unified theory for understanding Palestinian suicide bombing. There he brilliantly explains suicide terror as political theater staged by Palestinian leaders in reckless contempt for "their" people. To provide "evidence" of al...
