"911 Truth" Candidate exposes his antisemitism

category cork | elections / politics | news report author Wednesday May 09, 2007 20:09author by Aidan Report this post to the editors

Morgan Stack, self styled "Scholar for Truth" and the Head of the Irish 911 Truth Movement is standing for election in the Dail, in Cork Central, and Kerry North. He claims he wants to expose the truth about 911. Yet he spreads Anti-semitic lies through his website.
In case Mr Stack decides to remove the article, I've made a screen grab
In case Mr Stack decides to remove the article, I've made a screen grab

Across the Internet, on blogs, youtube, and myspace exists the blight that his 911 truth conspiracy theorists. Ranting about "no planes at the Pentagon”, or explosives at the WTC, or "`Star Wars" beam weapons, the seem to be involved in an escalating civil war of who can create the most outlandish theory. They claim the US administration actually carried out the events of 911, for profit and power, and can "prove it" with the most dubious of pseudoscience, and compressed video. They claim the media is suppressing the facts, (ignoring that their most pernicious methods of spreading their falsehoods, is Google video, and myspace).

Morgan Stack is one of these, self-styled, "truthers". An unemployed accountant, he is standing in two constituencies: in Kerry North, and Cork Central in the forthcoming Dail elections. He is standing on a "911 truth platform". Leaving aside the preposterous notion of, even if these conspiracy theories were true, what on earth is an Irish TD supposed to do about it; Stack has on opinion on platforms that matter to the people of these constituencies.

Stack, is not unknown to Indymedia. Earlier this year he wanted to put up notice on the event wire, of a 911-truth talk he was hosting in Dublin. Speaking at this event would be Webster Tarpley. Tarpley is a long time cohort of Lyndon J LaRouche, an American neo Nazi, and virulently anti-Semite. Tarpley hosted LaRouche's radio show for years, and even stood in a Democratic Party primary in the US for LaRouche. Webster Tarpley is one of the leading lights of the truth movement, writing one of the first books on the matter. The editorial team applied Indymedia’s no free speech for racists, and the event was hidden. Stack virulently protested, even getting English members of this "truth movement" and bombarded the Irish Collectives mailing, arguing insistently that Tarpley was certainly not an anti-Semite. It now seems that Stack himself enjoys ranting about the dangers of "The Jews"

911truth.ie is Morgan Stack's website. It links to the usual trite videos about 911 conspiracy theories, and a collection of e-mails that Stack sends out several times a week. You can read them on the site; they are a collection of pseudo science, numerology, and gibberish. However the article that piqued this writer's interest appeared on the 6th of May. The rant is a republished article from a deranged group who call themselves "Ghost Squad." The Film they are talking about is the Russell Crowe film, "A Beautiful Mind"

I wonder why the Jewish film industry would make a mistake like that, rewriting the plot of reality to convince us (with a powerful movie) not to obsess about the prospect of embedded code in the mainstream Jewish news media? You don't think there's a conspiracy do you? If you do, then you've got a problem: a beautiful mind!

By the way, now do you think you understand why it is that Ma Bush, Barbara herself, went around talking about how she hoped that conspiracy theorists didn't "start getting a beautiful mind about 911," and why she wouldn't trouble her "beautiful mind" with things? Well, if you think she knows what the rest of the Bush Family knows: that they've couped (and are controlling) us with the 911 scam, then you have a beautiful mind!

"A Beautiful Mind" was filmed before 911, in early 2001, but it was released after 911 - did the Hollywood Jews who made the movie know about 911 in advance, then brainwash us out of figuring it out? Come to think of it, was the whole attack a number game, in which the feds had spent years preparing us to call Big Brother in a national "911 call" in response to a "911 attack?” Is Hollywood part of a psychological operation?

The film was released on a very special date (and we've already seen how well dates can code): December 21st 2001. OK, try the number-code tricks I taught you above (see link, ed) and find the numeric sequence 12/21/21! The "Jewish" number 12, then 12 reversed - twice! It's all 12 permutations! Well, it's plenty tricky, but this has been a tricky infowar - at least to those of us (like Ghost Troop) with beautiful minds!

The date, incidentally, is the Winter Solstice, which means the shortest and darkest day of the year. Sound like a good day to bring out a movie that would keep everybody in the dark? Yep, sounds like it to me, too! Another trivia point, did you know that at the Academy Awards (controlled by Jewish Hollywood), "A Beautiful Mind" received the best picture award? Do you think that the Media Jews did that to make you accept the message of the movie - don't analyze media - all the more readily? I do.

One last thing, the bright Jewish screenwriter who rewrote the John Nash story to make it say something that the John Nash biography didn't say (that it's insane to try to decode news) is Akiva Goldman. Goldman has also written the screenplay for another "code" movie, "The Da Vinci Code!" Seems like the Jews think about codes all the time! They run the movies that set us up to blindly accept the media, and they've dumbed us down to the level of dirt. They told us at the beginning of the war that media would become "embedded," and even that was a code - for the fact that they were coding!


http://www.911truth.ie/plus-emails/plus86.html

Now this is gibberish but it is blatantly antisemitic gibberish, and Morgan felt it was worth propagating.

In fact if you scratch the surface of most of these 911 truth fantasies, you'll find a link to a Neo Nazi or Anti Semitic website. The American Free Press, a magazine with ties to David Duke, formed a bulk of research for the Internet movie "Loose Change", Tarpley's link is self evident. Eric Huffmeister a noted truther has self published a holocaust denial book. What was the first 911 conspiracy theory? The Jews didn't turn up for work on 911. I'm not saying that everyone who buys these conspiracy theories is antisemitic, but Morgan clearly is.

For those on the left it is sometimes very easy to buy into the lunacy Stack and his ilk spread. As George Monibot said in a recent Guardian editorial "People believe because it proposes a closed world: comprehensible, controllable, small. Despite the great evil that runs it, it is more companionable than the chaos that really governs our lives, a world without destination or purpose" And he warns us of the danger of doing just this; "this neat story draws campaigners away from real issues - global warming, the Iraq war, nuclear weapons, privatisation, inequality - while permanently wrecking their credibility. Bush did capitalise on the attacks, and he did follow a pre-existing agenda, spelt out, as Loose Change says, by the Project for the New American Century. But by drowning this truth in an ocean of nonsense, the conspiracists ensure that it can never again be taken seriously."

Stack is a perfect example of the idiocy these people spout, and if there is any justice then perhaps one of the few people on this site, from Kerry North or, Cork Central, tempted to give Stack their vote, they may think again.

he's not stupid because he refuses to accept the government line on 911. They are lying and they are hiding something. He's an idiot because he bought into the 'jews did it' propoganda. He didn't write the article you have a screen shot of, but he reposted it on his site, without disclaimer, which suggests he fully agrees with it.

911 was planned and carried out by the hidden hands of the military industrial complex, not by the 'jews and commies' who control everything. The media helps due to vested power interests, not religion.

Morgan sets himself up as a straw man easily knocked down, and used to tar other people who have looked rationally at the events of 911 without prejudice.

Considering the strike on the Pentagon hit the only side that had recently been re-inforced, had the least amount of personnel, and destroyed financial files which were sought by Congress to explain a HUGE black hole in taxpayers money.
Considering that there was no successful interception by the worlds most modern airforce of planes over a 90 minute period,
Considering that obviously false evidence was used - the fire proof passport of one of the named bombers.
Considering the almost free fall destruction of the two towers and WT7

One has to say it doesn't add up, and ask who benefits, and the answers lead to those in power, not to the door of a synagogue, but the corridors of power in Washington, and those people in the arms industry, oil industry.

It's about time someone posted a critique of these conspiracy theorists and their underlying motives. I find it very disturbing that people within the anti-war movement actually buy into these people's drivel. It's just a distraction from the real issues, but also promulgated by people with dangerous connections.

"It's about time someone posted a critique of these conspiracy theorists and their underlying motives. "

To whom are you referring Deirdre?
For your information, quite a lot of people support the theory that agents of the Military Industrial Complex are behind the attacks of 911 because they believe it to be the truth. The views expressed about it being the work of 'the Jews' do not represent the majority of people who question the official explanation of how 911 happened.
If some racists decide to tack that on to their bandwagon, that's not the fault of the people seeking the truth. If you don't question the official explanation for 911, that's your business, but don't compare this ludicrous anti semite to the rest of us.
Unlike the author of the article quoted, we're not spreading hate speech by asking people to look closely and objectively at the crime and the crime scene and the inconsistencies. We're not scapegoating a religion or a 'race'. The crime as we see it, was pulled off by people in positions of power, with access to technology, security passes, and the ability to hamper NORAD. the spectre of "the Jews" does not fit this criteria. Many Jews died in 911 and the lie that thousands of them were warned by Mossad not to turn up for work is nothing more than a dirty rotten lie.
Rich powerful vested interests (surely of various religions or none) in the military chain of command, and ex black ops people would be able to pull this off. And the puppets in suits knew how to make the most out of it. The country scrared sh!tless and willing to support a retaliation against somebody, anybody, and accepting limits on their freedom to do it.
If you want to, you can continue to believe that a bunch of badly trained arabs with limited training on Cessnas managed to pull this amazing flying feat off (including the 270 degree diving turn near the Pentagon) without being blasted out of the sky by the Pentagon air defense system, without jets being scrambled from Edwards AFB, that they executed high speed accurate strikes on relatively narrow targets in busy New York airspace, and in such a way that the twin Towers collapsed at almost freefall speed from fires near the top (think about what that means from a structural point of view), and with NOBODY claiming responsiblity in the aftermath, unlike all the other spectacular terrorist events - if you continue to believe that, you have that right, but don't label us all as having hidden agendas if we find it a bit implausible.

"911 was planned and carried out by the hidden hands of the military industrial complex"

This is at least as stupid a theory as the one that the jews did it. It would require tens of thousands of people to be complicit in mass murder of their own citizens, with perfect secrecy. That's impossible. At least the barmy idea that "the jews did it" contains a mechanism, however implausible, for the secret planning and subsequent cover up of the operation - the age old 'elders of zion' worldwide consipracy of jews.

Military planners, technologists and officers do all sorts of nasty things, but they only do them if they have been persuaded that they are doing their duty. I doubt you'd find a single military planner who would go along with a plan to murder thousands of their colleagues and the citizens that they are sworn to protect. They are not monsters.

The funny thing about the conspiracy theories is that there aren't any actual conspiracy theories. There's a whole load of context-free factoids which sort of look funny when they are stripped of their context. There's really no point in arguing against such things, since their proponents never actually attempt to develop a theory as to what happened, they just look for curious details in the so-called 'official theory' to pick at - a method of analysis which is entirely without merit at all. If any event at all didn't have curious details that were counter-intuitive and difficult to explain, you would be sure that something funny was going on.

So, please, please don't waste peoples time with random factoids that look unlikely on the surface (unlikely to the amateur eye that is, any engineer in the world who thinks that the so-called 'pancake theory' of collapse is impossible, or who thinks that there is any huge mystery about the collapse of WTC7 should be fired at once, for obvious and total incompetence). That approach is entirely and utterly unscientific and it is a signature of a paranoid mind - which is why it is fair to refer to such people as conspiranoids.

If you want to put forward an alternative theory as to what happened, go for it, explaining how, why, and by who the attack was carried out. If you can't come up with such a theory, just shut up.

"This is at least as stupid a theory as the one that the jews did it. It would require tens of thousands of people to be complicit in mass murder of their own citizens, with perfect secrecy.

No Chekov, it's not impossible. And it doesn't require tens of thousands of people to be involved. They just have to be at the right place to throw other people off the track. The government does keep secrets. Really big ones. Look at how rare whistleblowers are. Look at what the penalties are for divulging state secrets. The Johnson and Nixon governments would have kept really really big secrets about the Vietnam war if ONE man had not leaked the Pentagon papers. That means that lots and lots of other people who knew the truth, decided that the public did NOT need to know.

"At least the barmy idea that "the jews did it" contains a mechanism, however implausible, for the secret planning and subsequent cover up of the operation - the age old 'elders of zion' worldwide consipracy of jews."

No it doesn't explain anything. How on earth would "the Jews" prevent NORAD from scrambling interceptors to the off course jets?

"Military planners, technologists and officers do all sorts of nasty things, but they only do them if they have been persuaded that they are doing their duty. I doubt you'd find a single military planner who would go along with a plan to murder thousands of their colleagues and the citizens that they are sworn to protect. They are not monsters.

Really? The death squads in Latin America were not monsters? The ones who decided to carpet bomb Cambodia were not monsters?
I'm not sure what santised idea you have of the CIA and their fellow travellers but they blow up things and people on a regular basis. Louis Posada Carilles had no problem blowing up Cubans for the CIA.
There's no shortage of mercenaries out there, if you don't want to involve the ordinary service man or woman. And what about the Northwoods Document Chekov?

"The funny thing about the conspiracy theories is that there aren't any actual conspiracy theories. "
Actually there are plenty of actual theories. But like the CIA -Contra cocaine smuggling scandal, the accountability never reaches the higher level where the decisions are actually made because of the veil of secrecdy and deniability. But these plans didn't just happen by themselves.

The rest of your comment is pretty much your opinion, and I can't say what level of analysis you have put into checking out anything from the aviation or engineering point of view.

"If you want to put forward an alternative theory as to what happened, go for it, explaining how, why, and by who the attack was carried out. If you can't come up with such a theory, just shut up. "

Wow, are you an EDITOR of indymedia? Free speech is it now Chekov?
I won't shut up. I'm perfectly free to ask why the scrap from the towers was shipped out to China and not preserved as evidence. I'm free to ask how the national air defense system did not operate as it should have after the first plane went wildly off course. Normal operating procedure would have seen a response a lot earlier, when it missed it's first marker.
I'm perfectly free to ask how come a single passport survived a fireball and landed on the street to be used as evidence.
I'm free to ask how the military headquarters of the US, which has had drills specifically about planes hitting it, did nothing to prevent that scenario, despite having the equipment, and the knowledge that 2 planes had already been used to hit buildings in New York.
I'm free to ask for an explanation of what Mineta testified before the 911 commission about Cheney's order re shoot downs.
Those are not a few simple inconsistencies.
I can't tell you the name of the man who lit the fire at the Reichstag, but does that mean the Nazi's didn't do it?

Err yes - in fact the idea that the Nazis were 'really' behind the Reichstag is yet another conspiracy theory, this one created by the German Communist Party to explain why their slogan of the previous election 'After Hitler, Us' had not quite worked out as planed. In fact the fire was started by the Dutch left communist Marinus van der Lubbe as a blow against the Nazis but one which back fired as the Nazis were able to use it as an excuse to do what they wanted to do anyway. (hmm not so different from 9-11 then?)

And what about the Northwoods Document Chekov?

It's a well known and extraordinarily well documented fact that people do awful and horrendous things to those who are identified as the enemy. You don't have to be a monster to do really nasty things to other people if you are in an ideological space where you are convinced that you are doing it for the greater good - for your duty. It's not only the Americans who take advantage of nationalistic ideas to get their grunts to do really nasty things to enemy non-combatants. Guernica, Dresden, Hiroshima, Birmingham, Enniskillen, Darkley, Dublin, Monaghan, Guildford and the list goes on.

That's completely and utterly different than getting people to wipe out those who they identify with and who are supposed to be on their side. As an example, consider the fact that the IRA was able to plan and carry out the pub-bombings in Guildford and Birmingham without too much trouble. The equivalent to 9-11 would have been an IRA plan to blow up the Sinn Fein headquarters on the Falls road and the bogside Republican Businessmen's Association in the bogside, with a few hundred random civilian casualties thrown in, in order to implicate the brits. I'd guess that anybody who even raised such an idea within the republican movement would have been labeled a psychopath and been shown the door extremely quickly.

"The rest of your comment is pretty much your opinion, and I can't say what level of analysis you have put into checking out anything from the aviation or engineering point of view."

Lots actually. I have, for my sins, looked in great detail into the engineering claims of the conspiranoids. I'm good at sums; I have lots of qualifications and professional experience in scientific subjects; I understand the principles of the conservation of energy, the conservation of momentum, how potential energy is converted into other forms of energy, and various other relevant bits and bobs of mechanics. In my opinion, none of those who claim that the 'official theory' of the collapse is impossible understand very much at all about these things (I'm including the borderline-bonkers ex-professor from BYU in this). I look at the sums and I just don't see anything surprising at all about the collapse. In fact, I clearly recall saying to my TV "get out of there it's going to collapse" again and again as I watched the pictures of onlookers gazing up at the burning towers.

"I'm free to ask how the national air defense system did not operate as it should have after the first plane went wildly off course. Normal operating procedure would have seen a response a lot earlier, when it missed it's first marker.

I'm free to ask for an explanation of what Mineta testified before the 911 commission about Cheney's order re shoot downs. Those are not a few simple inconsistencies."

They're not even inconsistencies. The US defense forces are probably the most Taylorist, bureaucratic organisations that exist in the world today. They are famously incapable of taking decisions on the fly when situations occur which are not explicitly planned for - in such situations their response is normally paralysis. Their responses to events are centrally planned and codified in various operational rules. There is virtually no allowance for operational autonomy except in very small scale battle-field groups (and even that is a recent innovation). Each layer waits for orders from above and just does nothing. That's how they work. They are also unparalleled for their culture of ass-covering. If you expected them to react with precision and decisiveness to such an unexpected event (the simultaneous hijacking of four passenger airplanes was mind-bogglingly unexpected), then you're not familiar with the first thing about how they operate. None of this is secret either, have a look at the academic literature, or go along to some of the DARPA backed communications technology conferences where you can hear their senior engineers describe the various problems in great detail. Some of the problems are comical in what they reveal about the rigidity of these organisations.

Just to look at their communications systems. They employ a highly rigid Mandatory Access Control Model across their IT systems. This means, for example, that large chunks of their defence forces aren't even capable of communicating with each other, never mind quickly coming to joint agreements. US air force colonels complain that it can take months for them to receive clearance to communicate with their counterparts in the army. They also have a ludicrous amount of inter-agency competition.

There is actually a huge amount of evidence which supports the theory that their lack of response was due to paralysis, incompetence and ass-covering. The establishment of the department of homeland security was explicitly intended to enhance organisational inter-operation, but still, almost 6 years after 911 the various emergency response units can barely talk to each other over secure channels - because they won't let each other access to their secure cryptographic IT systems and they insist upon having their own autonomously managed systems and won't use centeralised federal systems.

"It's obvious Chekov that you don't agree, but where do YOU get off telling ME to shut up?"

Either put forward a theory of your own about what happened, or please do shut up. I am so effing tired of responding to people who are overnight experts on US command and control systems, mechanical engineers and so on. One more time, the correct way to advance an alternative theory is to put it forward yourself and see how it stands up. Picking holes in another theory, without putting forward a better one is USELESS, UNSCIENTIFIC and A COMPLETE AND UTTER WASTE OF TIME.

I've seen Loose Change and it is total and unmitigated rubbish. Aside from the large number of well documented factual errors (see link below) which caused it to be remade on at least 2 occasions, it is a perfect example of the pseudo-scientific method. A random collection of factoids devoid of context, without anything like a credible theory of its own. Many of the inferences that the makers want the viewers to draw from the factoids are amusingly self-contradictory. For example, it contains a piece of information which effectively disproves all of the theories about the building being wired for explosives, yet it presents that factoid as evidence of something funny going on in a different part of the film (the newspaper clipping which shows that the building was inspected by bomb-sniffer dogs only a few days before it was hit by the planes).

It is slickly made rubbish, but it's still total rubbish.

All the evidence clearly demonstrates that Lee Oswald shot at President Kennedy with three shots from the Book Depository in Dallas.

But for conspiracy nuts who think that the US government could launch a massive conspiracy by LBJ and the CIA to kill the President and get away with it for 45 years it is not much of a leap to assume that they could bring off 9/11as an excuse for an unending War on Terror.

I don't buy it.

I mean if such a crafty politician Bill Clinton couldn't have a blowjob in the Oval office without the world knowing, I don't think a moron like Bush or an idiot like Cheney (the guy shot one of his drinking buddies on a grouse hunt for christsake) who were unable to convince the world that Saddam had WMD would be able to pull off 9/11.

The real conspiracy were 19 Muslim hijackers who saw that border and immigration control and airport security in the US were a joke and took full advantage.

Bill Clinton was too busy fighting impeachment in the late 1990's to do anything about Bin Laden.

Dubya was preoccupied with "No Child Left Behind" (a sop to White folk who think it is high time their black servants kids learned their ABC's) and "Compassion Conservatism" bullshit when he was sitting like a fool reading "My Pet Goat" at that Florida kindergarten.

Bush Snr had once been CIA director and later US Vice President at just the time when Reagan was throwing dollars and guns at the Islamic Holy War in Afghanistan.

" or who thinks that there is any huge mystery about the collapse of WTC7 should be fired at once, for obvious and total incompetence)"

agreed.

if you read Report From Ground Zero, a great book by a retired member of the FDNY, who served at the Ground Zero site, Denis Smith- he writes a bit about WTC 7.

Basically, the building was allowed burn itself out. The FDNY got their men out of there pretty quick, as it was deemed unstable. Once they were sure nobody was inside, the decision was made to clear the area directly around it, and search through the remains of the main buildings for survivors.

It was also clear for some time the North Tower was going to fall, it wasn't as sudden as some portray it to have been. As for booms within the complex, common at any such fire in conditions like that, no proof of explosives what so ever.

"NYPD helicopter pilot reported early, before the fall of
the South Tower, that the North Tower was going to fall, but the
fire chiefs did not hear of this."

Some 9/11 conspiracy people claim that the planes were hijacked and then landed at US military bases and that cruise missiles or airborne refueling tanker planes were flown into the Twin Towers which were destroyed by controlled demolition. They also claim that the hole in the Pentagon was too small to have been caused by an airplane - so presumeably a truck bomb or some other sort of explosion caused the damage.

How do the US government keep all the mouths shut?
Since when is the US government so powerful?
If the hijacked flights were landed at the airbases what happened to all the passengers? Murdered? By soldiers? Surely the soldiers would have talked to the US news media and blown the US government out of the water?
How did the US government keep the guys remote controlling the cruise missiles or the remote control air refueling tanker aircraft from talking?
How did thousands of people who were working in the Twin Towers not notice the enormous numbers of demolition crews that would have been needed to blow up the building?
How come none of the demolition crews have spoken about it?
How did the US government convince the thousands of civilian employees in the Pentagon not to tell the truth about the fake plane crash?
How did they convince hundreds of eye witnesses to give fake testimony?

Because the 9/11 conspiracy is complete bullshit

Look at 650,000 tonnes of mass concrete turn to dust in 10 seconds....twice. Then bldg 7 goes down 23 minutes AFTER it had been reported collapsed on BBC World news. The only three steel frame buildings in history to go down by fire. Firemen report from 77th floor that they need two hoses to put it out, minutes later down goes No. two. William Rodregiuez the main keyholder of wtc-1 reported a 'massive' explosion in sub basement 7 , 12 seconds before the first plane hit. You can see it happen on u tube. But if you prefer to obey Bush when he says 'we will not tolerate conspiracy theorists' then go ahead. Personally, i dont think it's a theory any more. A conspiracy yes.

I can't tell you the name of the man who lit the fire at the Reichstag, but does that mean the Nazi's didn't do it?

"Err yes - in fact the idea that the Nazis were 'really' behind the Reichstag is yet another conspiracy theory, ... In fact the fire was started by the Dutch left communist Marinus van der Lubbe as a blow against the Nazis "

and the fact that In 1981, a West Berlin court posthumously overturned his 1933 verdict and declared him not guilty?

As for DV thinking that Oswald killed Kennedy... I am baffled. You have no problem believing that governments will kill thousands of people in other countries, or assasinate foreign leaders in other countries, but you believe there is some mystical property that prevents them from seeing citizens of their own country as 'collateral damage'? Ever heard of Frank Kitson? Anyone here heard about him or read his book?
While I'm waiting for the answer to that one, may I ask on what evidence do you convict Oswald for the JFK shooting?
I mean, Kennedy's head was clearly shot at least once from the front. The Zapruder film is not hard to find. Tell me how Oswald did it from behind.

As for 911, I don't expect many people in Ireland to be skeptical of the government line, but in the US, a LOT of people do not trust the governments version of events. Some have their whacky theories that the Jews did it, others think it was the same cabal who soldified their power after 22/11/63. And some people choose to believe the official story, that it was 19 guys who could barely pilot single engine aircraft, who managed to outwit even the Pentagon air defense system.

A few weeks ago a fuel tanker 'crashed' on a freeway interchange coming off the bay bridge between SF and Oakland. A section of the freeway 'collapsed' during the inferno caused by the tanker 'catching fire' leading to chaos and congestion for months to come. It was a little piece of Oaklands 9 11. Less than 6 months earlier George Bush's brother Erwin had used this section of freeway. Both the Trilateral Commission (Erwin is a member) and the American Enterprise Institute (Cheney) have described just such incidents in their estimates of likely terrorist targets. Hardly a surprise that, as this link below reveals, there were no Jews on the interchange at the time of the collapse.

In a 1997 Time magazine survey 22% of Americans believed the Earth is regularly visited by aliens from space. A Gallup poll found that 12% have actually seen a UFO. A 1991 study conducted by the Roper Organization titled "Unusual Personal Experiences: An Analysis of the Data from Three National Surveys" found that one in fifty Americans reported having actually been abducted by aliens. Yup, 4 million americans abducted by aliens.

A recent Newsweek poll found that 48% of the American public don't believe in evolution and accept the biblical story of creation as an absolute fact. They think that the earth was created by God in the last 10,000 years or so just like it says in the bible. More worryingly, 34% of college graduates agree as do 3 of the 10 Republican candidates for the presidency - Senator Sam Brownback, Governor Mike Huckabee, and Representative Tom Tancredo.

9/11 has spawned many conspiracy theories and being such a major event, that's not surprising. A huge number of the theories are plainly wrong or crazy, but there there are the grey areas as is often the case with all theories.

My own view on 9/11 ranges from something is definitely not quite right, and at a minimum it is clear there was some fore-knowledge to entertaining the possibility of some kind of inside job. Now there is a huge amount of claims and counter claims on the technical and physical aspects of the attack and I recognise the flaws in some of those arguments, but that is not too say that the opposite is then automatically true.

In many ways the most significant aspect of 9/11 was it's political convenience and the subequent usage made out of it. That alone causes great unease. The official story seems like rubbish to me, but I can't and probably never really will know what actually happened, but just because I don't accept the official story and question it, does not mean that I believe every conspiracy account or that I automatically accept all the 'factoids'. Nor does it make me a right-winger or anti-semitic. I do recognise that many of the main voices in conspiracy issues tend to be on the extreme edge and are often both right wing and anti-semitic, but running away from the topic because of that is like the way during the troubles in Ireland people avoided waving the national flag because it had become a symbol of the fighting end of republicans in the North.

We must accept that if there is any truth buried in any of the conspiracy theories about, that it is of great advantage to the powers that be that they can be easily associated with the UFO and anti-Jew clan. Its the quickest way for a story not to be taken seriously. In a slightly similar vein during the Soviet era in Russia, pollution was often considered to afflict capitalism only and there were many who believed it. As a result it was near impossible to get any serious recognition of the enormous damage being done. What this shows is that by creating a space in the media of a given society which is for loonies only, we can associate it with other issues too and ensure they are never examined properly. UFOs, crazy religions and the extreme end of conspiracies is that dumping crowd for us today.

Another curious fact is that on the Left in general, there is widespread discussion and acceptance of the class divisions in society and how capitalism uses, manipulates it and even creates it all to it's own end. That is a conspiracy of sorts, of which thousands are engaged, yet it is not considered so and oddly I have found numerous times when talking to people who have never encountered class analysis, when I tell them how capitalism uses it and wars are related to it, it has been said to me that is just a conspiracy theory that I am spouting and the challenge is put to me that no-one accepts that (or so they think) and do I really believe that those in power are plotting like that. I must say that I have been struck by the parallels.

Yet what we have here with 9/11 is an event, that was used for going to war, regardless of how we all here interpret the unfolding of how the event occured. The same might be true of Kennedy's assassination, in that his successor increased the war effort in Vietnam. The same is true about there was fore-knowledge of the Peal Harbour attack and that the oil blockade of Japan that preceeded it in the months before was inevitably going to lead to just such an attack. The justification here for allowing it to go through was that it would create the singular event to shift public opinion in the US from staying out of the war to going into it.

So why do these get rejected out of hand as politically unlikely, but yet class analysis is accepted?

The argument is also made that for say the 9/11 conspiracy, that thousands would have to be sworn to secrecy. Why 1000s? The best kind of operations often only have one or two moles in key positions that through a relatively small movement can change the course of events.

From Northern Ireland, we know that the British had a number of high level agents in the IRA. They also had 1000s of soldiers. Did all the soldiers and RUC police officers know about these people? No. Did the many 100s of members of the IRA know. Probably not. What the British were doing is that they were aware of (bombing & shooting) operations and allowed them to carry through, but in some of the situations, they had their people probably sabotage the guns or bombs or in other cases the SAS were in waiting. Why then would it be impossible to not do something similar with the 19 arabs, where one of 2 key individuals are helping with the logicistics and making sure certain checks are not made. The same as we know in the North that in the case of Loyalist terrorists attacks, often there would be a call from HQ to say withdraw police forces from a given area. That is one of the things many Catholics always comment on how the streets emptied of police and soldiers shortly before a Loyalist attack / shooting.

It is unlikely that all of MI5 were aware of who and what was going on in Northern Ireland in terms of agents, because there are many sections and divisions in such an organisation. The same would be true of any other intelligence agency. The entire camp does not have to be involved and does not have to know about anyones else operation outside of their own groups. In fact one of the things that has come out of the North, is that RUC, Special Branch, MI5, FrU and other Army agencies were each running their own agents often with little knowlwdge of each other. Are we to suppose it is different elsewhere.

Another point to consider in relation to manipulation of the 9/11 arab hijackers who alledgelly plotted from Afghaninstan. We all know the CIA ran the proxy war there in conjunction with Pakistan intelligence agency to fund, train and basically run the pre-runners of Al Qaeda in the 10 year long war against the Russians. Are we to suppose that when that war was over they just pulled out everyone, including all their contacts and agents. It doesn't make sense to do that and it would be an idotic thing to do. Yet we are supposed to belive that and the entire CIA, NSA and trillions of dollars worth of spying infrastructure detected nothing. This does not make logical sense. And logical sense is probably the key test we should use for any theory test.

Chekov makes the valid hypothetical point that for 9/11 it would involve many people effectively plotting to kill their own kind rather than the 'enemy' with the very reasonable assumption they would be reluctant to go along with it. But this important argument is working under the assumption that whatever mechanism of a plan he has in mind, involves a lot of people. I don't see why it has to, and therefore it's not a case of defeating that point, but side stepping it.

Overall though what I see in the arguments here is opposite extremes. It appears but I stand corrected that those rejecting conspiracy on 9/11 of any sort seem compelled to go to the other extreme and fully accept the official story. Perhaps it is out of fear to be seen to be tarnished with anything remotely resembling the stereotype of conspiracy theorists. Thats certainly the impression I get.

They're not "rejected out of hand". If you look at the detailed critiques of the shite spouted by 9-11 people you'll see that a good deal of effort has been made to explain why they're probably wrong. As for the difference between the theories of class-struggle and 9-11-jew-freemasons it's all in the quality of the evidence. You can go out and examine the class-struggle right now and draw your own direct set of data. 9-11 happened once and is not repeatable so the data is poor. A lack of data leads to the possibility of just about any sort of model fitting the available data points ... fine as long as you realise that the probability of the model is so low as to be useless.

If there's any conspiracy in 9-11 I'd say it's that the gubmint is happy to have a set of people "in opposition" who are obviously out to lunch and they can smear all opposition to them as "conspiracy weirdoes" ... pretty much in the way you described.

Folks, I think the real conspiracy (which nobody seems to have spotted) is the deliberate fostering of a bunch of head-wrecking conspiracy theories around 9/11 in order to confuse and discredit the anti-war movement. It serves a dual function: 1) it causes anti-war activists to take their eye off the ball and chase their own tail; 2) it associates the anti-war movement with whackballs and mad conspiracies and, hence, makes it easier for the pro-war lobby to discredit those opposing the Bush war machine.

I think the 9/11 Turth Movement is a CIA front.

I mean, Kennedy's head was clearly shot at least once from the front. The Zapruder film is not hard to find. Tell me how Oswald did it from behind."

Oswald fired three shots.
One shot missed the car, probably after striking a tree branch, and struck a kerb on Dealey Plaza wounding James Tague on the cheek as he stood near the triple underpass watching the motorcade.
At frame 223 the second shot hit from above behind and to the left in the back of the base of Kennedy's neck above the line of the shoulder blades to the right of the spine and exited the base of his throat nicking the knot of his tie.
Governor Connally who was seated in the jump seat which was approximately three inches lower than the backseat and six inches inboard was turned to the right with his right hand clutching his stetson across his lap. The bullet exiting Kennedy hit Connally in the back just below his right armpit, exited his chest below the right nipple, passed through his right wrist and lodged in the flesh of his left thigh.
It is clearly evident if you examine frames 222,223,224,225 of the Zapruder frame that both men react to being hit at the same time and that the right lapel of Connally's jacket flips up suggesting the exiting of the bullet from his chest.

Kennedy had his hands to this throat and was sagging forward and to the left with his chin on his chest when he was hit in the back of the head at frame 313. A close examination shows that his head is pushed forward by the bullet impact while the front top right side of his head explodes outward. The following frames show Kennedy's head recoiling backward and to the left in the opposite direction to the jet of ejected tissue combined with a neuromuscular spasm.

Autopsy photos show the gaping head exit wound was in the top right of the skull and that there was a small entrance wound in the back of the head. X-rays also show this.

Other photos show the wound of entrance in the back of Kennedy's neck and that the exit wound in the front of the throat was at a lower angle which corresponds with the angle of the sixth floor window at the time and in the position Kennedy had been on Elm street.
The same is true of Connally's wounds.
A bullet travelling in a straight line could have produced all seven wounds.

Photos taken from the sixth floor corner window of the Book Depository clearly demonstrate the Oswald had a clear line of sight on the limosine once it passed beyond the branches of the trees in front of the building.

The rifle Oswald used (he bought it by mail order under the name A. Hidell) was a bolt action rifle that could be cycled in 2.3 secs (between each shot the bolt handle is raised, drawn back opening the breech, ejecting a spent case and drawing a fresh bullet from the clip into the breech, driven forward ramming the round into the chamber and turned down closing the breech).

When Oswald opened fire he would have already had a round in the chamber.

first shot+2.3 sec, second shot +2.3 sec, third shot = 4.6 secs.

The Warren Commission determined that the three shots could have been fired between 5.6 secs minimum or more than 8 secs maximum.

Oswald was also seen in the window firing the shots by several witnesses who indentified him at a line up after his arrest.
His finger prints were on the gun, the bullet cases and on the boxes he had used to build his sniper nest.

Conspiracy theories actually have a very long history. Conspiracy theory drove repression during the age of the Roman Empire, for example. More recently the Protocol of The Elders of Zion was a carefully manufactured and widely believed conspiracy theory. In many ways the 'Holywood Jews' Theory is a direct descendant of the Protocol. the idea is that Jews are 'extremely intelligent', or 'cunning' (prominent jewish philosphers, writers, musicians etc are cited as proof) and that 'they all stick together' and that they are advancing the cause of... of, well, not-us-ness. Of course they want to take over the world.
The Blood Libel (that Jews kill children and eat them at Passover) is another famous anti-Jewish conspiracy, but it had its origins in Roman beliefs about human sacrifice in Christian practice. Nevertheless, it still resurfaces from time to time.
All of this only serves to bring the honourable tradition of scepticism into direpute. It is perfectly reasonable to be sceptical of what governments tell us. There is sound historical justification for believing that governments lie and act as agents provocateurs within their own states, and commit atrocities on their own people and their neighbours, and act against the wishes of the people and even against their own best interests. We should never underestimate (a) the duplicity of governments, and (b) the stupidity of governments.
I, for one, am willing to consider the possibility that there is more to the Twin Towers attacks than meets the eye. There are many aspects to it that I find scarcely credible - the lack of interceptions, no helicopters to lift survivors, the pentagon attack, the 'rebellion' on the last plane... etc But then, I tell myself, most of it is probably plain old inefficiency and stupidity, after all, look what happened to New Orleans. But to suggest it's a Jewish conspiracy is laughable. Or at least, it would be laughable but for the damage that this kind of shitty racism does.

Sometimes, people point out that 'anti-semitism' means you must be against all semites. This is a red herring. The term 'anti-semitism' has been used to describe anti-Jewish racism for a long time now and that's the way it has evolved in the English language. Most people accept this definition, and those who don't are generally refusing to do so in order make some rhetorical point. Look it up in the Oxford English Dictionary as this will back up the above.

Secondly, with regard to the idea that there's nothing offensive about the term 'media Jews', you're stripping the phrase of its context in order to achieve that conclusion. Stack is propagating nothing more or less than an old-fashioned Jewish-cabale-attempt-to-run-the-world type conspiracy theory, dressed up in new clothes. It's wearying to have to see this type of stuff excused by Indymedia contributors time and again - in Europe, of all places, where we ought to know better and have learned from our sordid past.

No amount of playing with semantics will help us get away from the fact that Stack is a racist. Racists generally love conspiracy theories, and will use them to try to excuse their racism (rather than vice versa).

Anyone can have(shove) the last word Aidan, no point suggesting to me that I can have it., but thanks
You say 'Stack is suggesting', then say...Stack read it. I am still failing to grasp your logic about racism. Even if he posted it on his site.
I woulden't defend racism in any form whatsoever, and frankly it is a bit of an insult to me to suggest that i am or that i am an apologist for one. I have lost people i've concidered to be lifelong friends because of my aggressive opposition to their racism-lots of them.
Now you are saying that he is a racist because he is 'suggesting that Jews conspired about 9/11'. Obviously someone did, and if he thinks jews did it for whatever reason is he not entitled to his beliefs, right or wrong, and, he's not alone. Every one knows someone did it, is it racist to suggest that it was done by Saudi's or Afghani's as Bush has affirmed. No. Every night on the news youll hear about a white male, or a black youth blaa blaa-is this not similar?
I most surely can grasp, though you suggest otherwise, that the article you read on Stacks website IS suggesting that Jews conspired about 9/11. What if it is true-
It is a big leap to accuse a person of being a racist for posting someone elses opinion on their site, suggesting that a certain group were responsible for 9/11,when some group were responsible. Because this third party thinks it was the work of Jews dosent confirm racism at all. Kevin Myers in some opinion is a racist, but we cant hold the Times or the Sindo responsible.
My kid is 5. I asked him to tell me the differences between him and his best pal. He/they came up with 9 differences. To me, the colour of his skin would have been the obvious difference-neither mentioned this. I have an acute awareness about racism, thats why I've even bothered following this thread.

Yeah, the term Media Jews is the tell-tale sign of an anti-semite.

On a related note, google has an interesting explanation of why anti-semitic websites appear on their first page of results when you search the word Jew into that search engine...

If you use Google to search for "Judaism," "Jewish" or "Jewish people," the results are informative and relevant. So why is a search for "Jew" different? One reason is that the word "Jew" is often used in an anti-Semitic context. Jewish organizations are more likely to use the word "Jewish" when talking about members of their faith.
[....]
Someone searching for information on Jewish people would be more likely to enter terms like "Judaism," "Jewish people," or "Jews" than the single word "Jew."

Class analysis is fundamentally different from a conspiracy theory because it does not require the conscious coordination of the participants. It's a systemic analysis which only assumes that people will tend to act in their own economic interests - something that's not exactly controversial - and that there are two major sub-categories of economic interests, those of capitalists and those of the rest of us, which is slightly more controversial, but is borne out by lots of evidence (for a pure evidence based approach, check out TheEconophysics of Wealth Distributions).

Also, you claim that it would be possible for the 911 attacks to have been a conspiracy involving a small number of people - please back that up. For all sorts of reasons, I think that's just not at all possible, not even close. If you can construct a plausible scenario, then it's worth taking seriously, if not, then it's just an assertion. The simple fact is that there are no alternative theories that are even remotely as plausible as the official theory. Once again, it is completely worthless to pick holes in a theory if you don't have a better one.

On the day of the 9-11 attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said of the attacks:

"It's very good…….Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)"

A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.

The New York Times reported Thursday that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards.

According to ABC’s 20/20, when the van belonging to the cheering Israelis was stopped by the police, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers:

"We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem."

Why did he feel that Palestinians were a problem for the NYPD?

Police also told the Bergen Record that bomb sniffing dogs were brought to the van and that they reacted as if they had smelled explosives.

The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation. This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers' vans are a common intelligence cover. The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released.

Several of the detainees discussed their experience in America on an Israeli talk show after their return home. 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."

How did they know there would be an event to document on 9/11?

There's a lot of insults flying around here, but why do you people always come to the defence of Israel? 9/11 may not have been Israel's doing, but as long as everyone's skeptical about the "official" story, everyone is entitled to put forward their theories, no matter how distasteful they may or may not be.

Smearing and labelling stack because of your "fear of the Jews" mentality is ridiculous because it blinds you to the possibility that Israel may have had a direct/indirect role in 9/11 - the same Israel which is, undeniably, an illegal and racist state built upon notions of Jewish racial and religious superiority (isn't this something which you people claim to oppose?).

There is a difference between regular Jews and Zionist Jews, with the latter using their clout within U.S./international political, media and financial circles to justify the actions of the apartheid state of Israel. This is not conjecture nor "racist nonsense", it is simply fact, and a brief investigation of positions and money trails will open your eyes to this.

Anyone who suggests Stack is a racist is deliberately blurring the issue in defence of Israel and that, IMHO, is unacceptable. It's how Zionist fifth columnists operate in the United States: to turn a debate about Zionism into a debate about anti-semitism.

I'd imagine Stack is just floating theories. There you go calling him a racist again, which you have absolutely no right to do.

Zionism has a presence in Hollywood, and by default a lot of them (most of the in fact, although some of them are "Christians") are Jews.

When Israel and its followers continue to define themselves and justify what they do by the "superiority" of their race, why is Morgan Stack attacked for pointing this out?

While most Jewish people don't take part in Zionist nonsense, there is a large minority of Jews who seek power and influence in politics, the media, academia and finance and to further the interests of the racist and illegal state of Israel. They are Jews, after all, so what's wrong with pointing this out? If anything, Jews should be saved from these bastards, so attempts here to create some idea that Morgan Stack is about to re-open Auschwitz are contemptible.

People here are all too willing to indulge in insulting Catholics, and talk about vast Vatican conspiracies against the working class, so it seems sort of rich for you to criticise what Stack is saying.

"Lets not confuse people opposed to religious fundamentalism like rabid Zionists, with plain old racists like Stack."

You're misunderstanding Zionism completely; most people supporting and running Zionism are not even religious, never mind fundamentalist. People like Ariel Sharon, Avigdor Lieberman and Nathan Sharanksy are Jewish racial supremacists, which means not only do they hate Arabs and Palestinians, but they also hate people like you and me.

Which means that they do not care how many of US are embarrassed, maimed or killed, as long it benefits the state of Israel. It IS true that Israel had foreknowledge of 9/11. It IS true that the Israeli lobby has permeated the Western press, governments and financial circles for their own benefit, creating the "anti-semitism" furore as their safety valve. It IS true that on a daily basis, they intensify their cruel genocide against the Palestinian people, not to mention against the people of Lebanon; they are now threatening it against Iran. They have been proven in the past, i.e. the USS Liberty, that they are willing to engage in false-flag terrorism to further their goals.

So what would stop Israel from murdering 3,000 people in Manhattan on 9/11, by demolishing what is essentially their own property (Zionist Larry Silverman being the proprietor)?

I quote Zionist military historian Martin van Creveld: "We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under."

Chekov,

If this was a Star Trek convention and we were talking about who assassinated the Clingon emperor, then you could play your little Cluedo Elimination game. But it isn’t.
The official explanation given for 9/11 was primarily aired in order to create a scenario in which Afghanistan could be invaded for the purpose of opening pipeline routes and attacking Iraq for the seizure of it's resources.
The reasoning behind attacking Afghanistan was puerile - Let's get Osama for his part in the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, as though he is some evil puppet master who is pulling the strings of deadly Islamic commandos around the world. What a load of Convoluted Bogey man nonsense. Then lets attack Saddam, because he is an ally of that same Bogeyman and he has a death ray that can destroy the Human race in 45mins. Lies, Bollox and propaganda.
Who is the one with the stupid theories? These are the sham excuses that led to two destroyed countries and hundreds of thousand of deaths and raging civil wars and massive increases in militantism worldwide.
The film "Loose change” does not have to propose theories as to who did do it and why in order to satisfy you or another Star Trek Fan. It merely has to cast reasonable doubt over the official explanations which led to the mayhem and death that we see today. The movie certainly does that. The Americans and more so the Afghans and Iraqis who died on the basis of what is surely a highly dubious theory proposed and acted upon by known shysters and liars that inhabit the top echelons of big business and government circles in America, deserve a proper exposition of the facts that surround these terrible events. They deserve a proper investigation into the official explanations given, into the motive for the lies and obvious cover-ups that facilitated the Mass killings in Afghanistan and Iraq and the trial of those exposed to be involved in thwarting the truth for their nefarious purposes.

You Chekov, are the one who should be obliged to prove why the world should accept the immunity from investigation and prosecution of known liars , traitors and killers. You are the one supporting whacked out theories on the basis of flimsy and unsubstantiated claims.

There is no proof that the American War Machine can bring about a remedy to the 9/11 by its current actions and all available proof indicates that the real reasons for these attacks have nothing to do with remedying 9/11. The official line is that these military actions will remedy international terror attacks. But the available evidence indicates that these military actions are the root source of terrorism and militiantism in the victim societies.

I don't really want to take part in this. It seems to be about slagging off the folks offering their views rather than the views themselves being examined. This is happening on both sides of the debate.

The NIST report is quite flawed. Cherrypicking it hardly debunks conspiracies. To be truthful I really don't care how it all happened, I'm more into what resulted from it and indeed in the loss of life that resulted.

To suggest that 911 wasn't an incident that perfectly facilitated the global 'war on terror' would be akin to being a holocaust denier. It seems to me that the 'incident' itself is very like the incident that preceded the Big Bang. It's quite important, but it's quite impossible to define without at least some speculation. Again this covers both sides of the debates.

In truth I don't know what happened on 911. I follow neither the 'conspiracists' nor the official 'truth tellers.'

If I were to be waterboarded or coerced in some other acceptable fashion, I'd lay down my hat slightly over the line that divides the parties that argue this topic, on the side of the conspiracists. There's lots of reasons to why I see it this way. First and foremost (and I suppose this might label me as a wingnut) is that I do not trust authority, even when they produce seemingly decent evidence. In this case however, I think a lot of the official version of the evidence is a lot less than decent.

I don't like the pancake theory. Note the use of the word 'theory.'

I don't like the jet fuel scenario whereby the jet fuel is said to have weakened the steel supports. Eventhough jet fuel can indeed weaken steel and weaken it enough to cause the collapse of the 911 buildings. The NIST report on this matter is deeply wanton and in my opinion suspicious in this regard. I'll examine this a bit more in a bit.

I find it deeply suspicious that the Bush dynasty have been in bed with the Bin Laden family for decades and that this fact never impacts the official story in a negative fashion.

My expertise extends to electrical engineering, not structural - however - it seems to me that the jet fuel would have been burnt within seconds of impact (in both buildings). The official story does not explain the timing issue - why the buildings didn't collapse within minutes of the impact, afterall the steel would have begun to cool after impact and have begun to reclaim some of (not all) its initial strength. I have not seen (and I'm open to correction here) any data that seeks to explain the lag between impact and collapse.

With regard to the NIST report and the fuel scenario that I've pointed to already, why is it that the report claims to have examined over 170 areas of the twin towers by examining steel recovered and it states that only three areas show evidence that the steel reached temperatures of over 250°C and it says that these areas seem to have reached these temperatures of above 250°C in the debris pile after the collapse. None of the steel tested seems to have been exposed to temperatures of above 600°C. The NIST however often informs its readers that the tests were only conducted on less than 1% of the steel and thus do not represent the general conditions, especially at the cores of the buildings.

It is this claim of around 170 pieces of steel that alarms me most and not because of the normal question to do with why the debris was so rapidly and irrecovably disposed of either. What alarms me is the fact that in December of 2003 the NIST stated that it had in its possession 236 pieces of WTC steel. At this time the NIST said that it had enough steel to adequately investigate the WTC collapses and that its collection of steel was representative too of the core columns. This should have lead to an examination and subsequent publication of temperature tests on the steel that back up the official theory rather than refute it. The question I ask is why did the NIST lie in its very first publication or why is the vitally important and obvious data missing?
http://wtc.nist.gov/media/PublicUpdateFinal.pdf

As for coming up with a scenario or theory as to why this discrepancy exists. That'd lead to me making a conspiracy theory of my own, either to allow for the discrepancy as the NIST report does or to fall in with those described as the wingnuts. I don't know the reason why the discrepancy exists. I just know that I don't like that it does exist. What is really disturbing about all of this is not the conspiracy angle that can be explored, what's really disturbing is that this NIST report can and is being used to change how we design and build.

Seven Insurance Companies Pay Silverstein Properties $2 billion As Settlement For 9/11 Insurance Claims

Silverstein Properties, Inc. leased the World Trade Center from the Port Authority in July 2001. Because insurance policies for the property had not been finalized when they were destroyed lawsuits were filed to resolve disagreement over how much the insurance companies should pay.

My expertise extends to electrical engineering, not structural - however - it seems to me that the jet fuel would have been burnt within seconds of impact (in both buildings). The official story does not explain the timing issue - why the buildings didn't collapse within minutes of the impact, afterall the steel would have begun to cool after impact and have begun to reclaim some of (not all) its initial strength. I have not seen (and I'm open to correction here) any data that seeks to explain the lag between impact and collapse.
------

You offer no evidence to support your assertion that the fuel would burn off.

-----
As for coming up with a scenario or theory as to why this discrepancy exists. That'd lead to me making a conspiracy theory of my own, either to allow for the discrepancy as the NIST report does or to fall in with those described as the wingnuts. I don't know the reason why the discrepancy exists. I just know that I don't like that it does exist. What is really disturbing about all of this is not the conspiracy angle that can be explored, what's really disturbing is that this NIST report can and is being used to change how we design and build.
-----

So if I have this clear, you assume that the thousands scientists and engineers who contributed to the the NIST are wrong, and the tens of thousands of engineers who are using the NIST to develop new building designs are wrong.

There are several other reports by universities in Leeds, Sheffield and China, all of whom support the NIST.

C) Steven Jones' dust sample comes from the loft of a confirmed truther Janet Mc Kinely, who has appeared beside Jones at truther conferences.

"You offer no evidence to support your assertion that the fuel would burn off."

Are you suggesting that the fuel did not burn off?

"So if I have this clear, you assume that the thousands scientists and engineers who contributed to the the NIST are wrong, and the tens of thousands of engineers who are using the NIST to develop new building designs are wrong."

I would have thought it patently obvious from what I've said, that I wasn't making any assumptions. The discrepancy I've pointed out exists. Let's not talk of assumptions. I've said nothing whatsoever about engineers and what they believe. I've pointed out that the NIST report does not prove that the collapse was caused by jet fuel. The only data they publish shows that the samples of steel that they have, probably did not reach temperatures above 600°C. I'm basically calling their work sloppy, I'm not saying their conclusions are wrong, I don't know whether they are or not, I know they're sloppy. Why did they not collect adequate samples? Why did they not collect samples that showed obvious signs of structural failure, like twisting, stretching, etc.? Particularly so when they were already examining the theory that burning jet fuel weakened the steel.

I think any engineer who reckons the NIST report to be conclusive is not a very good engineer, I'm not suggesting that these engineers are wrong with regard to examining the science behind the NIST report. Please remember that there are millions of engineers who've never seen the NIST report. Your claim of thousands hanging to its every word and act sounds more like desperation than a refutation of what I've said. The Physics in the NIST report is well worked out (even if their models of floor sagging for example are ten times what has been observed, etc.), but the evidence that the NIST gathered, hardly supports these findings. Most investigative methodologies end with the evidence promoting a theory or a solution. This particular investigation started with a solution that neither gathered the evidence nor focussed on the evidence that they did gather in a way that leads to their solution. As I've said, the science might be good, but the methodology sucks and in this case the methodology was a waste of resources (if the evidence is to be ignored, why gather it?). Engineers might support the science, but they should not support the methodology. I'm wondering why you've skipped what I've actually said and skipped to commenting instead on your assumed conclusions of what I've said.

Anyway, I've said what I wanted to say and I won't be drawn into some circular debate whereby I have to repeat myself over and over and attempt to dampen all and sundry assumptions made about what I think.

You're suggesting it did not, the onus is on you to support the assertion. Photos and evidence of other plane crashes, for example, the concorde crash in Paris a number of years ago, where the building is on flame for hours afterwards.

So put your money where you mouth is, explain why you think the jet fuel would just burn up.

"So if I have this clear, you assume that the thousands scientists and engineers who contributed to the the NIST are wrong, and the tens of thousands of engineers who are using the NIST to develop new building designs are wrong."

Thousands of enigneers did contribute to the NIST report. It's the single most examined building collapse in the world. Please offer imperical evidence that millions of engineers haven't read it.

Strawman, you've offered no evidence that the NIST evidence or modelling is flawed. It's a 10,000 page report. The number of experts in the field of structural engineering, building design, and civil engineering who have come forward to dispute the NIST report, is virtually nil. As an engineer you should be worried that no one has published a critique of the NIST report in a respected engineering or scientific journal.

What is it I've said that you've refuted?

I did not claim that the fuel did not burn off as you first claim. Then you say that I think it would burn off and you ask me to say why I think this. Duh. Cause it's fuel. Maybe you are on about the time it took for the fuel to burn (I really don't want to make assumptions here), but your need to appear to be smart combined with your need to be insulting seems to have short-circuited your cerebral cortex. Either way, fuel is liquid and it runs and is prone to the effects of gravity. The NIST report does not indicate that the steel was damaged by heat at lower levels, which is where most of the fuel would have ended up if it were not burnt rapidly. As for soaked objects burning longer and causing the lag I spoke of earlier - I dunno - that's why I initially raised the point in the first place. You've hardly answered this point, despite the glib attitude.

You want me to offer empirical evidence that millions of engineers have not read the NIST report. Well that's a bit thick, but I'll indulge you. I'll use your own diatribe to prove it. Unless you are very wrong, you suggest that tens of thousands of engineers are using the NIST report and that thousands contributed to it. You say the number of engineers who dispute the NIST report is virtually nil. So, if there are millions of engineers and you subtract your tens of thousands of engineers who use the NIST report (it should be okay to presume that they've read it) and you subtract the thousands you say contributed (who've probably read it too), you are left with those who either disagree or those who haven't read it. Since you suggest that nobody disagrees with it, we are left with those who didn't read it. How's that for empirical proof - very accurate too unless you are full of shit.

You say I'm building a strawman when I say the NIST report is flawed. However, in order to refute my point you again say that no expert has come forward to dispute the NIST report. As well as being utterly a load of shite, this answer refutes nothing that I've said whatsoever and shows that you only possess the skill to parrot what you've heard others say, and that your critical reasoning ability would more correctly be labelled a 'disability.'

When I said I didn't want to have to repeat myself, it was not an admission, that I was in fear of your reasoning or skills in debate. It was a nice way of telling you that I don't want to waste my time debating semantics with an airhead.

Firstly two other posters have implied or suggested Silverstein was involved in 911, one, suggested insurance fraud, the other because he was a "Zionist" (yet offered no evidence Silverstein is a Zionist).

Aluminum, well the building was clad in Aluminum, so theres a perfectly rational explanation for that, and a major component of dry wall is Sulphur. Sulphur isn't a byproduct of a thermite reaction, by the way, because the sulphur will be boiled off into sulphur dixoide. As to the Barium, once again Jones is cherry picking data

http://216.109.125.130/search/cache?...icp=1&.intl=us

See section 2.3.5:
In addition to the spherical iron and aluminosilicate particles, a variety of heavy metal particles including lead, cadmium, vanadium, yttrium, arsenic, bismuth, and [strong]barium[/strong] particles were produced by [strong]the pulverizing, melting and/or combustion of the host materials such as solder, computer screens, and paint during the WTC Event.[/strong]

Jones is a fraud, his only previously published paper was a paper on proof Jesus visited the Mayans. He worked in the quack science of the lunatic fringe of the 21st centuries Alchemy, that is cold fusion. He has never published a single article on 911 in a reputable peer reviewed, scientific journal.

Both quotes from this thread, if you cannot see them as insinuations that Silverstein was involved in the above comments, I suggest you get your eyes checked or a CAT scan of the language center of your brain, because something is clearly defective.

As to Jones. Jones failure to include control samples, his failure to actually consider alternative reasons for the presence of these elements. Combined with the suspicious and dubious manner in which the samples were gathered. Jones' had a predeterminded explaination for the presence of the spherules, and crunched the data to fit his explanation.

Well done Morgan, keep up the good work!

Unfortunately some people are so brainwashed by the media they just can't accept the truth when it's staring them in the face. They would much prefer to stay in their safe little world were the media always tells the truth.

The evidence is mounting up daily about 911 from very credible sources yet anyone who challenges the official story is a conspiracy nut.

Meanwhile they have no problem believing that 19 terrorists with box-cutters managed to hijack 4 planes and expertly fly 3 of them into buildings, with maneuvers highly experienced pilots could barely do. All planned and executed from caves in Afghanistan.

They've no problem with the fact that 2 of them disappeared into holes, that NORAD was asleep at the wheel for an hour and a half, that building 7 just collapsed for no reason, that DNA/passports at the WTC was used to identify the terrorists, that the towers collapsed at free-fall speed etc etc etc

"
The current NIST working collapse hypothesis for WTC 7 is described in the June 2004 Progress Report on the Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster (Volume 1, page 17, as well as Appendix L), as follows:

An initial local failure occurred at the lower floors (below floor 13) of the building due to fire and/or debris induced structural damage of a critical column (the initiating event) which supported a large span floor bay with an area of about 2,000 square feet;

Vertical progression of the initial local failure occurred up to the east penthouse, as the large floor bays were unable to redistribute the loads, bringing down the interior structure below the east penthouse; and

Horizontal progression of the failure across the lower floors (in the region of floors 5 and 7, that were much thicker than the rest of the floors), triggered by damage due to the vertical failure, resulting in a disproportionate collapse of the entire structure.

This hypothesis may be supported or modified, or new hypotheses may be developed, through the course of the continuing investigation.

I visited that website, but only for a moment. I'm an American, and I have to live in a country which is going through this debate. Right now, about 60% of us still believe the official story about what happened on 9/11, but 40% do not, and that is with no support from major corporate media. If the German people had had an internet in 1939, Hitler probably would still have rolled in to Poland, but someone might have caught on that Operation Himmler was not Poland attacking Germany, but Germany attacking itself and blaming Poland. As it turned out, we didn't learn about this until the war crimes trials after the war.

Actually, the "moles" inside the U.S. Government have been very good at keeping secrets. It has taken years for information about the JFK assassination to come out. We have a recent book: "Blood, Money & Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K." by Barr McClellan, "Noted L.B.J. Authority and Personal Attorney." McClellan, LBJ's attorney for years, states that LBJ ordered the murder of JFK. LBJ's former mistress, Madeleine Duncan Brown has come out with the same accusation and also accuses LBJ of ordering the murders of other people. In his taped, deathbed confession, Watergate criminal and CIA operative, E. Howard Hunt, implicated LBJ, CIA operative Cord Meyer and others as the leaders of LBJ's coup d'etat. Cord Meyer had a special motive, since his former wife, Mary Pinchot, was reportedly JFK's favorite mistress. Pinchot was murdered about a year after JFK, and on his deathbed, Cord Meyer said that Mary was murdered by the same people who killed President Kennedy.

Dozens of other people died under mysterious circumstances after the JFK assassination, including most famously David Ferrie and Dorothy Kilgallen. If you want to keep someone quiet, you can either kill them or threaten to kill their loved ones. In the U.S. government, they can take away your pension if you do something while still employed that the President's people don't like. Consequently, we see a LOT of retired military personnel coming out against our government over 9/11, but almost nobody on active duty. This isn't all just a bunch of crazy racists. Look at all of these people:

Not everyone who has questions about 911 blames it all on a Jewish Conspiracy. 911 was not a Jewish, Muslim or Zionist Crime. There were many Jews, Muslims, Christians, Buddists and Athiests who all lost their lives on 911. There is evidence that multiple intelligence agencies knew of an approaching attack and that they warned the American intelligence agencies. Individuals within the US Intelligence network tried to do their jobs ie Lt Colonel Anthony Shaffer and FBI John O'Neill but they were prevented from doing so for what reason we still don't know, but it appears to be more than just people being complacent.

The 911 Commission was formed to investigate the attacks as a direct result of the pressure from the 911 families who thought for justice, accountability and answers. The White house didn't want an investigation but was eventually forced.

Please, take the time to learn some real issues about 911

Thanks to the spectre of cognitive infiltration the Conspiraloon™ Alliance has few in the way of heroes it can place faith in in these difficult times. Michael Parenti is, however, one of the handful of serious academics such as Peter Dale Scott, Michael Hudson and Jesse 'The Body' Ventura that the Alliance currently looks upon favourably. That is until if and when they are exposed as being the COINTELPRO scum that they possibly are

As Michael P. himself said recently

'Democracy isn't about trust ...trust is something you should reserve for close friends and loved ones ...and even then you should check them out once in a while'


Here is an mp3 of a speech Parenti made earlier this year at the Understanding Deep Politics conference
Michael Parenti: Deep Ideology and Conspiracy - http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/world/2010/09/45....html

Parenti's getting on a bit and he does lose his way momentarily a couple of times in his presentation. But this is Parenti we're talking about and even a Parenti who pauses occasionally to think to himself about what's for dinner tonight and if he should put on a cardigan or not is still a class act

Highlights of the talk include...

* A listing of the intellectual alternatives to what is now termed 'Conspiracy Theory. Alternatives such as "Innocence theory", "Somnabulist theory", "coincidence theory", "stupidity theory", "incompetence theory" and the trusty old loon favourite "stochastic theory" (shit happens)

* A discussion of how the Few have managed to narrow the range of permitted public political discourse down to a point where any suggestion that the establishment is run by people of deliberate bad faith is designated as being in the same category as Elvis sightings

* Identification of what should be a blindingly obvious point that, for some logically inconsistent reason, it's OK to believe that Labour organises to pursue its own self-interest in the best way that it can but to believe that oligrach's do the same is popularly dismissed as insanity. A notion enthusiastically promoted by media owned and controlled by those self-same oligarchs


Parenti also ponders upon the fact that those who consider themselves to be of the Liberal Left have been suckered into being some of the most vigorous supporters of this kind of elite-serving bullshit thinking.

It's Parenti. It's Good Stuff

The most ridiculous Liberal-Lefty response frequently seen in those unable to accept modern Geo-political and social reality, is the utterly illogical one espoused by some dude called Chekov (above):
"It would require tens of thousands of people to be complicit in mass murder of their own citizens, with perfect secrecy. That's impossible"


It may be 'improbable' (or it may not) - but it is certainly not 'impossible' - and anyone claiming that it is 'impossible' is merely demonstrating the narrow confines of their own intellect.

This rejection, based on nonsense 'logic', somehow takes for granted the notion that our leaders (both Military & Political) are NOT completely psychopathic, which given the welter of available evidence to the contrary, is an utterly ridiculous supposition.

For more on the subject of the very obvious Psychopathology of Military & Political leaders in the West (and elsewhere) please vist the website Political Ponerology - : http://www.ponerology.com/
" With very few exceptions down the ages, discussions in moral philosophy - the study of right conduct - have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature, and course of evil in a manner free from supernatural imaginings. Evil was often considered something to be endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures. And - as Lobaczewski demonstrates - the origin of evil actually lies outside the boundaries of the conventional worldview within which the earlier moral inquiries and literary explorations were conducted. Evil requires a truly modern and scientific approach to lay bare its secrets. This approach is called “ponerology”, the study of evil, from the Greek “poneros” = evil.

The original manuscript of this book went into the furnace minutes before a secret police raid in Communist Poland. The second copy, painfully reassembled by scientists working under impossible conditions of violence and repression, was sent via courier to the Vatican. Its receipt was never acknowledged - the manuscript and all valuable data lost. In 1984, the third and final copy was written from memory by the last survivor of the original researchers: Andrew Lobaczewski. Zbigniew Brzezinski blocked its publication.
