Evidence That Begs For A New 9/11 Investigation

There Are Hundreds Of Questions Still Unanswered Regarding 9/11

Time For A Real 9/11 Investigation
If You Think We Already Had A Thorough Investigation, Think Again
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 020810

This article isn't intended for the 9/11 truth movement as much as it is for those who still accept the official story. Addressing those who already believe is simply preaching to the choir. It's time for all Americans to come together and finally demand a new 9/11 investigation.

Those accepting the official story simply do not realize that there are numerous, outlandish, incongruities and coincidences to the 9/11 story that beg for more investigation. Those that are not part of the 9/11 truth movement naively think that the 9/11 Commission thoroughly investigated the worst attack ever on American soil. They couldn't be more mistaken.

Many of those who believe the official government version, have never looked seriously into the evidence from 9/11. In all fairness to the victims and their families, please review the following in consideration for a new 9/11 investigation:

First off, not only did Bush not want a 9/11 investigation, openly resisting the formation of an independent commission for 441 days, the Bush administration also placed a lot of restrictions on the investigation right from the start. If the truth was to be found, it would be exceedingly difficult with the following limitations placed on the 9/11 Commission.

  • Very little funding provided to find answers.

  • Timetable placed, limiting amount of investigation.

  • Limited the scope and extent of the investigation.

  • Limited the number of Commission members to see evidence.

9/11 Commission co-chair Thomas Kean told the National Press Club on the 2006 9/11 anniversary that the commission was "set up to fail right from the start." He cited the lack of funding and investigative time, plus extreme political duress, as major obstacles in their way.

Thomas Kean: 9/11 Commission Was Set Up To Fail
Both Commissioners, Lee Hamilton and Kean, have publicly said they were set up to fail.

Co-chair Lee Hamilton adds, "This commission does not have all the answers."

So, the co-chairs of the very committee assigned to investigate 9/11 are both in doubt as to the effectiveness of the probe that they themselves led. This alone should lead people to realize we need a new 9/11 investigation, one that is better funded and also open ended in pursuit of the truth, no matter where it leads to.

Whether you believe the official story or not, the truth is, there are significant questions that were never addressed at all during the investigation. Valid points have been noted, with legitimate questions raised due to suspicious evidence and significant, substantiated facts from the event. Much or all of it was never reported by the 9/11 Commission. It is an undisputable fact that the appointed 9/11 Commission clearly missed a lot of critical evidence.

Here is but a short list of some of the more glaring points that they missed:

(1) World Trade Center Building 7 Implodes Just Like WTC 1 & 2

Not two, but three towers collapsed in less than :10 seconds on 9/11. The other tower, World Trade Center 7, the Salomon Building, was never hit by an airplane, yet dropped in perfect symmetrical fashion, much like towers one and two, falling neatly into its own footprint.

WTC 7 falls quickly and symmetrically, just like WTC towers 1 and 2.

This building is the perfect example of a controlled demolition. It falls perfectly in free fall, with no resistance. For those that have never seen building 7 collapse, this should no doubt be highly intriguing at this point. The thing you may find even more interesting is that the 9/11 Commission said nothing about this building collapsing in its final report. Nothing whatsoever.

A 47-story building, not hit by an airplane, collapses just like the other two towers, in less than ten seconds, and those investigating didn't feel the need to address WTC 7 in their report? One might think they would, especially since there were so many important government agencies in that building, yet not one mention in the 9/11 Report. How weird is that?

(2) Dick Cheney Tracked Pentagon Attack Plane 50 Miles Out!

Probably as alarming as the collapse of WTC 7 are the actions of Dick Cheney after the second tower was hit. Cheney was rushed to the Presidential Emergency Operating Center (PEOC) by Secret Servicemen immediately following the attack on the second tower. What is particularly odd is what Cheney did once he got there.

Cheney shows no emotion whatsoever, nor any surprise as the WTC falls.

DOT head Norman Mineta was also in the PEOC that morning. He testified under oath that Cheney was tracking flight 77 from well over 50 miles out, before it hit the Pentagon. According to Mineta's 9/11 Commission testimony:

"During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the Vice President, 'The plane is 50 miles out.' 'The plane is 30 miles out.' And when it got down to 'The plane is 10 miles out' the young man said to the Vice President, 'Do the orders still stand.' And the Vice President turned and whipped his neck around and said, 'Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?'"
Testimony of U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta before the 9/11 Commission. (5/23/03)

Even with 1960's missile technology, the military could have easily shot that airplane down from that distance. Easily. So why wasn't it then? Why did the young man question Cheney's order and why did Cheney get so upset when he was asked about it?

Was the order Cheney gave a stand-down order? Why was the plane never pursued or shot at, let alone shot down? Again, Cheney tracked it from the command center from well over 50 miles out!

Just as importantly, if Cheney tracked the object for that long, why didn't he have the Pentagon evacuated? There were 184 innocent people killed as a result of that attack and his negligence. Why hasn't anyone asked Cheney about this?

How does the 9/11 Commission fulfill its investigative duty with no challenge or follow up to Norman Mineta's testimony regarding Cheney tracking the plane on radar?

(3) High-Tech Military Explosives Residue Found

A group of noted scientists and researchers has found conclusive evidence of explosive residue within four separate dust samples from the WTC site. The substance found was thermate, a high tech version of thermite, an advanced military explosive that requires a security clearance. Engineered by the military, thermate is combustible at much lower temperatures than thermite, plus it burns far hotter, making it an effective cutting charge for steel beams.

Super-thermite, or military grade thermate, has been found in the WTC dust.

The scientists found not only spent thermate residue, but also active thermate, not yet ignited. Why there would be thermate mixed in with the WTC debris is a very good question to ask someone.

The thermate story has been out since 2009, but for some reason, those within the major mainstream corporate media never addressed it at all, even though many network anchors initially reported that the destruction looked exactly like a controlled demolition.

Each tower dropped in :10 seconds or less. Even though military thermate evidence has been found that supports the theory of a controlled demolition, the government continues to deny requests to re-open the investigation.


The government has failed to enlist or join in any collaborative efforts with those independent scientists who discovered the material, to officially test and verify the scientific thermate findings. That in itself is quite telling.

This one single piece of evidence all by itself ought to be enough to open a new 9/11 investigation. Finding a high-tech military grade explosive is clearly something to stand up and take note of.

For the record, NIST says that it did not bother to perform any tests at all for explosives residue.

So much for a thorough investigation.

(4) Many Of The Alleged Hijackers Are Still Alive

Many of the alleged 9/11 hijackers are still alive and well, living in the middle east. This has been well established already by the BBC and other foreign news media. Anywhere from six to nine are said to be alive. Many have been found by the media, which leads to the trillion-dollar question, if these Saudis didn't do it, then who did?

These alleged hijackers are still alive and well.

Many do not even know this fact and still think the original suspects are guilty to this very day. That isn't exactly setting the truth straight for the official record.

You would think that this would concern someone in the government. Aren't we trying to find all those responsible for the 9/11 event?

If these guys didn't pull off the 9/11 hijackings, then who did?

If not them, then who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks?

(5) The Right-Handed Fake Osama Video That Claims Credit For 9/11

One of the most glaring pieces of evidence pointing to a cover-up of 9/11 is the release of a particular video, so obviously fake, that one has to wonder about the people working at our intelligence agencies that sanctioned it.

The face alone ought to be enough to convince anyone that indeed this is a bad Halloween impersonation, however, the purported Osama also makes a major telltale gaffe in the video, revealing this calculated attempt at deception... the imposter eats, drinks, writes and gestures, all with his right hand. Again, this is an obvious key point since Osama is left-handed. (see: FBI Wanted Poster )

Pause the video at 32:44. Watch it again from 33:01 through 33:08. The guy in the video is clearly right-handed, not left.

How stupid can you be when trying to fake a video impersonation of Osama?

How stupid, or complicit, does this make the media look for selling this obvious video fake to the public? Out of all the news agencies, not one single person caught this? Not even one intrepid reporter?

NewsFocus has posted the fake Osama video online for downloading at the link pasted below. It is 32.6 MB in size will take some time to download, depending on your modem speed.

(Note: The video is in RealPlayer format, but will be available in another format soon.)

(To download for Windows PC: right-click and select 'Save Target As')

After watching the video, ask yourself how the media missed this obvious con job?

Is this blatant incompetence by every single media outlet, or is it collusion in a national cover-up?

It should be noted that immediately following 9/11, Bin Laden sent a message stating adamantly and unequivocally that he was not involved in the attacks.

So why is someone faking Osama videos to claim that he is responsible?

Why did the Bush administration pass off an obvious fake imposter to the media as the real Bin Laden? Was it because they purposefully wanted to fan the fears of the American people, so that the administration could bankroll their war agenda?

Spot The Imposter

Real Osama (L) and the fake Osama (R).

By the way, if you look at the FBI Most Wanted poster for Osama, you should note that he is not wanted in connection with 9/11. The FBI only wants him for other crimes, the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya.

No 9/11 hijackings are mentioned, as well as no World Trade Center attacks, and no Pentagon attack charges. None whatsoever.

FBI Most Wanted Fugitive Poster of Bin Laden

FBI Holds No 9/11 Charges Against Osama

When asked, the FBI says point blank that it has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.

Nevertheless, it seems that someone is trying very hard to make that false case with the American people and the world, with the U.S. media acting as a witting pawn in it all.

Though many internationally believe that Osama is long since dead, it is quite clear that someone has gone out of their way to make people believe he is not.

You see, if "the boogey man" lives, then so also does war, along with its multi-trillion dollar industry of immoral war profits.

As Smedley D. Butler once wrote, "War Is A Racket."

(6) Conflicting Evidence Found

In New York City, a jet engine was found that is said to not be typical of a 757 aircraft.

In the Pentagon, a wheel assembly and a jet turbine were found that were also reported to not to be from a 757.

Where did these non-757 parts come from?

Did something else strike the WTC towers and the Pentagon?

Numerous military and aviation officials have said emphatically that a 757 could not have flown the impossible maneuvers that the attacking DC craft performed over the Pentagon. Air Traffic Control operators are on record as saying they thought they were witnessing a military aircraft on their screens, due to its precision high-speed aerobatic movement.

New York City - jet engine found, not matching a 757.

Washington DC - small turbine found, not matching a 757.

The existence of physical evidence that does not fit the perceived nature of the crime is troubling and begs for more investigation. To dismiss these pieces of evidence out of hand would be tantamount to ignorance or complicity. If these pieces don't add up or make sense with the official story, then we need to know why.

Re-Open The Investigation

Any one of these five reasons ought to be enough to warrant re-opening the 9/11 investigation. How these points can be accepted in their totality without a call for a new investigation is unconscionable.

These are merely the glaring omissions, only a few of the many incongruities and coincidences that we have been told to swallow as part of the official story.

Questions such as these should call for an immediate re-opening of the 9/11 case and begin an all new investigation into the event.

Other Tenable 9/11 Observations & Questions

Aside from the top reasons given for re-opening the 9/11 investigation, there are also many other irreconcilable issues to address when it comes to the official story. Combined with the first five reasons above for a new investigation, the following extra points from the event should lend further merit for consideration.

1 Impossible for buildings to fall that fast, unless controlled demo.
2 Kerosene and office furniture are incapable of creating temps to melt or soften steel. Yet we had rivers of molten steel for nearly two months after 9/11, even after being doused repeatedly with water.
3 No fires affected the lower floors of either WTC 1 or 2.
4 Not one, but three steel frame high rise buildings free-fell within seconds into their own footprints, for the first time ever in history.
5 Physically impossible for a hollow aluminum plane to fly through three rings of solid steel reinforced concrete at the the Pentagon.
6 Three rings of the Pentagon were breached. (Was this a missile?)
7 No wing impact or engine marks on the face of the Pentagon.
8 No large plane parts found at Pentagon or in Pennsylvania.
9 Debris field scattered in Pennsylvania over six to eight miles.
10 Four coincidental terrorist war games scheduled on the same day.
11 NORAD defeated three times. (assuming they took out flight 93)
12 DC emergency dispatch tapes and video are still classified.
13 The emergency fuel tanks were never reported to blow at WTC 7.
What caused the collapse with only a few small fires burning?

Damning 9/11 Circumstantial Evidence To Consider

As if these questions of themselves aren't enough, we also have the following disturbing facts to reconcile, including elected officials who were arguably derelict in their duties on 9/11. Our top officials did not react as they were supposed to in regards to a national emergency, especially with the nation under attack. The inaction of each of these figures had a discernable effect on the reaction of our government during a time of attack on our country. (For one figure, it wasn't inaction as much as it was an admission that brought scrutiny in his direction.) The fact that so many key high ranking officials are noted as being grossly neglect in their official duties to the nation, is what is suggestive to many from around the world of a powerful inner cabal within our government.

Please consider the following:

Fact: George W. Bush sat in a Florida classroom and was derelict of duty as Commander in Chief while we were under attack. He gave no orders to Chief of Staff Andrew Card. Bush said and did absolutely nothing. The leader of the free world had just been told that for the first time since our nation’s independence, the mainland of the United States of America was under attack, yet he just sat there. He even did a short photo-op with the teacher afterwards, so he was clearly in no hurry whatsoever to see if we were being attacked anywhere else, like maybe Chicago or Los Angeles, or perhaps even Washington DC.

Fact: Donald Rumsfeld left his post and was derelict of duty, going outside instead, to the Pentagon lawn, sure to be photographed to corroborate his critical absence from the command loop. Rumsfeld had no business being away from the war room, where his official duty was to direct an effective defense of the nation. In light of the military personnel there, the single presence of Donald Rumsfeld on the Pentagon lawn helping out with a stretcher did not add to the rescue effort, however his single detraction from the chain of command was an egregious breach of military protocol, directly impeding the proper defense of the country during an attack.

Fact: Dick Cheney was in the the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) bunker beneath the White House on the morning of 9/11. Cheney was rushed there by Secret Service agents after the 2nd plane hit. DOT Secretary Norman Mineta testified before the 9/11 Commission that Cheney tracked the Pentagon attack plane from well over 50 miles out, before it had struck. Even with 1960's missile technology we could have blown that plane (missile) out of the air easily, but Cheney didn’t. When pressed by a young man as to whether the orders still stand, Cheney became visibly angry and whipped his neck around declaring, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?” It wasn't too long after that the Pentagon was hit. (See video farther below)

Fact: Rudy Giuliani told ABC's Peter Jennings live on the air that he was told the World Trade Center was going to collapse, but he now steadfastly denies he was ever told this. Why would Giuliani publicly claim that he was told the buildings would collapse and then refute that admission later, as if he never said it? He plainly stated to ABC, "We were told the World Trade Center was going to collapse." This is an alarming statement since no one had any way to know the buildings would collapse, considering this had never ever happened before. In light of the fact that the fires burned only a short duration (20 minutes or less) and there were no fires below the 78th floor to undermine the entire structure, it is hard to understand how anyone could have possibly known the buildings were going to implode and collapse. One can only surmise this is the reason why Giuliani now vehemently denies being forewarned about the WTC destruction. (see video farther below) Giuliani also banned all photography and video at ground zero once suspicious looking debris started to be dug up.

Fact: FEMA was in New York City the night before the 9/11 attacks. FEMA worker Tom Kenney told CBS's Dan Rather, "We're currently, uh, one of the first teams that was deployed to support the city of New York for this disaster." Note that Kenney says they were deployed for this particular disaster. He also said, "To be honest with you, we arrived on late Monday night (9/10) and went into action on Tuesday morning." FEMA now says it was actually in town for a terror drill on the pier, strangely enough, scheduled for the day after 9/11. (More of those opportunistic war games, terror drills etc, that were all coincidentally planned around a real terrorist strike.) The arrival of FEMA in New York City the night before 9/11 is a disturbing revelation to many.

Who Profited From 9/11 And Its Initiated After-Effects?

The most common principle of all in the investigation of large crimes is to ask, who benefited? As Watergate informant 'Deep Throat' once told Washington Post investigative reporter Bob Woodward, "follow the money." That reasoning is most always still valid when it comes to high crimes, but not all nefarious endeavors are so easily tracked, especially in cases of state sponsored activity. Power and control are also an integral part of the equation.

So with these thoughts in mind, who truly did benefit from 9/11?

  • The United States (new strategic middle east foothold, with oil & gas)

  • The military industrial complex (hundreds of billions in war profits)

  • Department of Defense (budgets greatly increased)

  • U.S. intelligence services (budgets greatly increased)

  • PNAC (policies for U.S. world dominance furthered)

  • Larry Silverstein (received $4-billion in insurance money)

  • Put Option Investors (Alleged CIA investors made fortunes)

  • Bush family (Oil investments, Carlyle Group war profits)

  • Dick Cheney (Halliburton war profits)

  • Israel (U.S. fights its enemies for them)

And who were the biggest losers from 9/11?

  • Afghanistan people (citizens murdered, country ravaged)

  • Iraqi people (citizens murdered, country ravaged)

  • U.S. people (Constitutional rights taken with Patriot Act)

Those involved in any orchestrated profits from this deviously engineered tragedy clearly have no moral scruples, nor any human integrity. Their avarice will one day surely be their undoing.

Just How Far Would Someone Go?

Many falsely believe that factions within our government could ever run amuck and pull off such outlandish feats of aggression for political or intelligence gain.

When people of power and great wealth collude together for empire and profit, beware, for big lies will be told in order to sell a false illusion, one which all but ensures the success of their plot and guarantees their profit.

Fortunately we have some damning instances, the ones that were caught, where we now have official documentation on record, proving not only their existence, but of an even larger government role.

  • Gulf of Tonkin Attack: This was staged to falsely push the U.S. into the Viet Nam war, killing tens of thousands of Americans and Vietnamese.

  • Operation Northwoods: United States document that planned for the  shooting down a civilian U.S. airliner and blaming it on the Cubans so that we could go to war against them.

  • Iraq War Invasion: Bush and Cheney lied about weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq so that we could overthrow our own installed puppet, Saddam Hussein in a war for oil, basing rights, and the dollar.

Some might readily say that these attacks weren't planned against the U.S. which would be true, but that tends to easily dismiss the thousands of young men and women that we send to needlessly die for us in fabricated wars for empire and profit.

This is all done based on either a total political lie, or else a U.S. alphabet agency-backed coup. More often than not, a combination of both. In these consciously manufactured, immoral plans, many hundreds of thousands, if not millions of innocent civilians are killed... murdered, due to an illegal war for profit and empire.

The fact is, as documented above, it is clearly very possible for factions within our government to misuse power and authority in order to support a contrary ideology, or the direct benefit of an elite order or a select few. With but a few lies exposed in the light for all to see, it makes you wonder how many lies and secrets we haven't caught on to yet.

To point out the obvious, we've used 9/11 as an excuse for illegal wars of aggression with Afghanistan and and Iraq, based upon plans already drawn up before 9/11. As a result, the U.S. has obtained invaluable and long desired gas and pipeline routes that will reap profiteering oil corporations literally trillions in oil profits.

So to frivolously discount any inside government complicity or intelligence help, just because it sounds unbelievable, is foolish. As history has always shown, people will do anything for money.

In Summary...

With the preceding points in mind, most by now should begin to understand the call from 51% of Americans who are already calling for a new 9/11 investigation. Yahoo! reports that the 9/11 topic has become the all-time top search ever in their short history. Many people in the United States and around the world are seeking the truth through internet news sites because they simply do not buy the official story, and they don't trust the mainstream corporate media when it comes to 9/11 truth.

It is absolutely impossible for "we the people" to accept the 9/11 Report and have the complete truth when the 9/11 Commission did not look at all the facts, nor the evidence in its entirety. It is readily apparent that a new investigation is very much necessary and justified in order to address legitimate questions and concerns that remain over 9/11 evidence. Not only do we owe it to ourselves to find the truth, we owe it to the surviving 9/11 family members for proper closure.

No true American should stand in opposition to the people of the United States concerning the pursuit of truth when it comes to unanswered questions dealing with 9/11. The fact that there are many important points overlooked by the previous 9/11 Commission is disturbing in itself, but to let them go without further scrutiny would be far worse.

The 9/11 event is a story that most Americans don't know as well as they might think, due in large part to the corporate media who have failed miserably in their duty to investigate and report. The story needs to come out, no matter where the chips fall.

The observations raised in this article are indeed legitimate concerns that need to be addressed and fully investigated to get the complete picture of what actually happened on 9/11. Considering the seriousness of the many questions still unanswered, anything less than a new 9/11 investigation would be morally negligent on our part, not to mention an inhumane response from an intelligent, civilized society.

This time, don't just ask for a new 9/11 investigation. This time, demand a real 9/11 investigation.

No matter where the evidence trail leads, it's time to finally answer the unanswered and bring all of those responsible to justice.


DOT Head Norm Mineta Testifies To The 9/11 Commission On Cheney

This is very damning testimony. The plane could have been easily shot down.

Giuliani Discrepancy In 9/11 Warning Of WTC Collapse

These are two totally different accounts from Giuliani.

The 911 Commission [ Excerpt from "A September Coup" ]

The fact that Bush openly and vigorously opposed an independent investigation into 911 was all the more highlighted by his first appointment, upon acquiescing to a formal panel. Henry Kissinger was appointed to head the initial commission, however, when  confronted by 9/11 widows, "the Jersey girls," he was soon forced to resign when he wouldn't reveal his business contacts, specifically if any might have the name bin Laden.

Bush then put together a commission of individuals who were questioned by many as being politically compromised or had the suspicion of possibly being less than forthright in furthering a true and honest investigation.

Thomas Kean (R) and Lee Hamilton (D) headed the commission, but with major direction from Philip Zelikow, the man who single handedly steered the 9/11 Commission and its entire investigation. Al Felzenberg acted as the commission's spokesman.

Conflicts & Compromise

Lee Hamilton, was the chairman of the House select committee that investigated the Iran-contra cover-up. He was personally privy to to considerable evidence that implicated Reagan and (HW) Bush, but he looked the other way and chose instead not to investigate further. According to Hamilton, in an interview with PBS Frontline, he openly admitted that he didn't think it would be in the country's best interest to subject Americans to another embarrassing impeachment trial. Hamilton felt it was better to withhold incriminating evidence for the good of the nation.

So with a crime far more serious than Iran-Contra, how do you suppose Lee Hamilton felt about exposing the Bush-Cheney administration, or the PNAC, if needed, for complicity and treason in the 9/11 event?

Two of Thomas Kean's previous business partners were among those needing investigation for the 9/11 event, Khalid Bin Mahfouz and Mohammed Hussein al Amoudi. Both of these men were accused as alleged "financiers" of Al Qaeda. To top it off, Mahfouz was Osama's brother in law.

As if all of that isn't enough, Thomas Kean, was also said to have business connections with bin Mahfouz and Al-Amoudi.

To add more insult to the 9/11 families and those Americans who were expecting a complete, honest and thorough investigation, 9/11 Director Philip D. Zelikow served on George W. Bush's Presidential transition team and also had previously worked very closely with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

So much for a fair and impartial investigative commission.

Zelikow Held The Real Commission Power

Zelikow, a high-level national security adviser to both Bush administrations, was appointed by President George W. Bush as the commission's Executive Director and he played a major role in what could and couldn't be seen by the other members of the commission. He set the entire commission agenda, picked the areas to investigate, chose which witnesses to speak with and also personally selected which evidence would be allowed. He controlled the entire investigation from start to finish.

Interestingly enough, Phillip Zelikow was the 1998 author of 'Catastrophic Terrorism - Imagining the Transformative Event,' but also a man whose college thesis dealt with creating public historical myth. These are very troubling conflicts to qualify someone to head an unbiased and objective investigative commission.

Zelikow also had a conflict of interest, with close personal ties not only to National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, but also to key PNAC members Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz.

Dubiously enough, in 2003 he prematurely wrote the outline of the final 9/11 report, even though the investigation was just getting underway! Since when does that happen in an investigation? He was either psychic or he had a pre-arranged false story that he was told to peddle, independent of any facts or truth that might emerge from the investigation.

He also tried to insert false information into the final report about an Iraqi-9/11 connection. He said that the real threat from Iraq was to Israel. And we thought they were worried about protecting the U.S.

Zelikow told the Washington Post that he was concerned about the spread of “conspiracy theories” about the attacks, which he described as pathogens.

“Our worry is when things become infectious, as happened with the [John F. Kennedy] assassination,” Zelikow says. “Then this stuff can be deeply corrosive to public understanding. You can get where the bacteria can sicken the larger body.”

According to Zelikow, the Kean Commission discussed many of the 9/11 theories, but did not address them in the final report. “When we wrote the report, we were also careful not to answer all the theories. It’s like playing Whack-A-Mole. You’re never going to whack them all.”

Zelikow, later told the Washington Post that there was no need to release the Washington DC CCTV surveillance footage that showed the Pentagon crash. These security video tapes have never been shown to this day.

Phillip Zelikow indeed played an infamous roll in shaping the official narrative regarding the 9/11 event.

A Bogus Investigation Without Blame

One of the more ominous and troubling statements coming from the commission was from Lee Hamilton who said, “We’re not interested in trying to assess blame, we do not consider that part of the commission’s responsibility.”

Say what? Seriously? An investigation without assessing blame?

What kind of investigation was this?

Why no blame for 9/11?

Why withhold key evidence?

If all of that wasn't bad enough, President Bush then imposed a time restriction of only 18 months for the murders of 3,000 innocent people and perhaps the most serious investigation ever in United States history. Why?

If you're searching for the truth in an organized conspiracy, why would you purposefully limit and restrict the amount of time in which the authorities could investigate the crime?

The Bush administration actually did just that!

When Bush said he didn't want an independent investigation into the attacks of 9/11, he appears to have been very serious about that.

What type of legitimate murder investigation does not seek the identity of the murderers and their accomplices?

The 911 "omission" strangely enough missed all of the following major points in its alleged search for the truth.

  • Missed conflicting testimony of Mineta & Hyde regarding Cheney.

  • Never asked Rudy Giuliani who warned that buildings would fall.

  • Never questioned the fall of World Trade Center 7.

  • No mention of Sibel Edmonds testimony on government 911 knowledge.

  • No testimony from William Rodriguez or Barry Jennings regarding bombs

Why did the 9/11 Commission mention absolutely nothing about the WTC 7 destruction? FEMA was able to acknowledge the event, yet the 9/11 Commission felt it unworthy to even mention in their report.

Why did Bush set limits on the number of commission members who could see the actual evidence or ask questions about it?

Wouldn't you want your entire investigative team to look at all the evidence together? Why limit the evidence to only a few select members and then restrict what they could say about it to other members, as well as the media?

Why did others testifying have to be under oath, yet Bush and Cheney were both exempt from that?  Neither Bush nor Cheney appeared before the commission under oath.

Bush and Cheney also didn't have to appear separately before the 9/11 Commission, as they were specifically asked to, much like other witnesses were. They both refused to do so. Upon demands from the White House, they were both allowed to testify together, to which some have argued was nothing more than a concerted effort to keep their stories straight and facts together.

And yet Bush claims this was an investigation to get to the truth.

Senator Mark Dayton of Minnesota differs harshly with that opinion.

Video: Senator Dayton of MN Sites 9/11 Fault

From all that went on, or didn't go on, the claim of a thorough investigation to seek the truth of September 11th is hard to qualify.

The Commission closed on August 21, 2004.

Members of the commission have now said they feel they were set up to fail.

The CFR Connection

The next affront to a proper investigation came with the naming of the commission members. Five of those ten members just happen to be members of the Council on Foreign Relations, as well as its Director, Phillip Zelikow. The commission co-chairs, Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean, are also CFR. In all, six members of the 9/11 Commission are affiliated to the CFR.

This is something which concerns many, since the CFR is often linked to the new world order agenda, for which 9/11 has been a major catalyst. This is an interesting coincidence to say the least.

CFR Members on 9/11 Commission

It should be noted that another CFR member also just happens to be Bob Graham himself. Just days before the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks Graham began making public calls for a new 9/11 investigation. Very curious timing. It was coincidentally just three days before the ten year anniversary of 9/11. It also came at a time when arguably one of the most powerful bullets in the 9/11 truth arsenal had been fired with the release of the damning new documentary "Explosive Evidence: The Experts Speak Out," produced by the 1,500 Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Again, the request from CFR member Bob Graham is curious for some.

Is another cover-up in the works?

A Real Search For The Truth?

Most large government investigations have historically begun within a week to ten days from the date of the actual disaster, but for 9/11 our government waited for well over a year, over 400 days to begin any sort of national investigation.

The U.S. government spent over $92-million dollars investigating President Clinton, yet initially spent only a mere $600-thousand dollars investigating the worst attack ever on American soil. The subsequent 9/11 Commission then spent a paltry $15-million for their follow-up report of the alleged facts, $77-million LESS than was spent on the Clinton investigations (for which the Clinton's were exonerated of all Whitewater charges by the Republican controlled Congress).

Nearly $100-million was spent to investigate President Clinton, and yet only a meager $15-million went to find out who attacked our country, killed over 3,000 innocent people, destroyed two national landmark skyscrapers and dramatically changed life, liberty and freedom as we knew it, all on one fateful September morning.

We spent $14-million investigating how the Waco disaster was handled. After the second shuttle explosion we immediately allocated $50-million to investigate the Columbia shuttle disaster, yet only authorized a mere $15-million to investigate the first ever successful major attack on American soil by alleged foreign terrorists.

Wasn't 9/11 worth more than that?

And again, why did Bush and Cheney not want an independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks?

Apparently the Republican controlled Congress wanted to know more about a blue stained dress than the worst attack ever on American soil.

No Effort For Evidence?

If the government was truly serious about investigating the 9/11 attacks, why was the WTC evidence allowed to be destroyed immediately afterwards?

Why were the metal support beams shipped away to be melted down, before the investigation ever began? Is this something that happens at a normal crime scene? Why was it allowed for the biggest crime ever perpetrated on American soil?

Why weren't forensic investigators allowed to test the steel and building remains for crucial fire or explosives evidence? Again, why send it all the way overseas and not next door to Pennsylvania?

Why did no one test any of the metal from fallen World Trade Center tower 7, a building not hit by an airplane that day? Wouldn't you think for sure that government investigators would want to know a whole lot more on why that particular building fell?

Where was the instinctive and passionate curiosity to investigate the worst crime ever on American soil?

9/11 Commission Stonewalled by the CIA
An Op/Ed From 9/11 Commission Members Kean And Hamilton

New York Times - Op/Ed, By THOMAS H. KEAN and LEE H. HAMILTON - January 2, 2008
More than five years ago, Congress and President Bush created the 9/11 commission. The goal was to provide the American people with the fullest possible account of the “facts and circumstances relating to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001” — and to offer recommendations to prevent future attacks. Soon after its creation, the president’s chief of staff directed all executive branch agencies to cooperate with the commission.

Polls: Skepticism Among Americans On Official 9/11 Story
Below is a summary of opinion polls querying the American public on the viability of the official government narrative for 9/11. Polls have been conducted by such pollsters as Zogby, Scripps Howard, Reuters and Angus Reid and cable news channels such as CNN and MSNBC. Apparently, the official conspiracy theory isn't doing very well. In fact, the numbers are scaring the bejesus out of some of the pollsters, who are left looking for ways to trivialize such large numbers of their fellow citizens as "fringe elements". Tactics include suggesting the respondents are misguided because of ethnocentric bias, inability to cope with events of large magnitude, lack of intelligence, factual ignorance, one-sidedness, the internet or deeply embedded distrust of government. The last suggestion appears to have a chicken-or-egg problem. (Read more...)

Top Counter-Terrorism Officials Question 9/11
GeorgeWashington's Blog 020709
Counter-terrorism experts presumably have some insight into terrorism, right? In fact, numerous high-level counter-terrorism experts question the government's investigation and explanation for 9/11. ...




On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned people of the world hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent and public investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7.

We believe there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that might have been the actual cause of the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7.

Given the importance of the events of 9/11/01 and it's consequences, we believe it is our duty, as citizens of the world, to uncover the truth about this event and ensure that justice will be made.

We also are in full support of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org) petition for a new independent investigation.
