October 24, 2005
this day, there has been no independent official inquiry into the
attacks of September 11, 2001. The Kean Commission, with which most
Americans are familiar, was based on the Bush/PNAC
version of events. It was charged with probing the breakdown of
intelligence prior to the attacks and making suggestions for improving
communications among the competing agencies involved. The Commission,
formed after more than a year of opposition by the Bush administration,
did not…repeat...did NOT…investigate or report about the causes of the
more important – to this day there has not been a single piece of
evidence presented to the public that corroborates the official
government version of the most devastating attack in our history. Think
about that. For more than four years, scores of credible experts
have challenged the explanations offered by the Bush administration,
and yet not a shred of evidence has been offered by the US government
to support the official version of events they claim took place on that
more absurd is that fact that not a single official inquiry has
attempted to respond to, discredit, or refute the questions that have
been raised. On the contrary, both the American government and
the complicit media have dealt with the every single challenge to the 9/11 explanations
in two ways. They either totally ignore them or dismiss them out of
hand as ridiculous conspiracy theories. Most of the well-researched and
revealing findings by independent investigators are unknown to the vast
majority of Americans.
and time again, when I come across close-minded Bush supporters, I
witness the effects of an unexplainable phenomenon: a highly dangerous
variation of HIV – a condition I call the Hypocrisy & Illogic Virus.
Strangely, the most severe symptoms of this condition seem to manifest
themselves during any and all discussions of the events of 9/11,
disease is easily diagnosed by the appearance of two disabling
features: the need to approach all issues of national importance with
an air of shameful hypocrisy, and the absolute inability to use any
form of logic during discussions of such matters
people afflicted with this disorder approach 9/11 as one person. They
all blindly believe what they have been told by their government.
They all adamantly refuse to listen to any questions that have been
raised about inconsistencies in the official version that simply don’t
make sense. And if they engage in any dispute about these
discrepancies, their arguments are illogical to an extreme, and they
are simply unable to follow any rational argument to its conclusion.
sad reality is that there is no way to convince these brain-washed
believers that there may be something more to the story of 9/11 than
what they have been told. That’s not too surprising, since most
of these people still buy into the Bush/PNAC reasons for invading Iraq.
They blindly accept whatever they are told and close their minds
tightly to any other information, no matter how factual. They
cannot be reached. There is simply no way. The disease is far too
endemic to treat with any ordinary approach. They believe as they
do, and that’s all there is to it.
So, let’s turn the tables and put the burden of proof on them!!!
believe that I, and every single person involved in the independent
9/11 research community must ask one question of the people who still
believe the official 9/11 story. We must demand that those who accept
the Bush/PNAC explanation of the events of that terrible day answer a
"WHERE THE HELL IS YOUR PROOF?"
claim that the President and his handlers have told you the truth. You
refuse to consider the information we show you that punches huge holes
into the official version. You refuse to check out the information for
yourself. You tell us what we have uncovered is false.
Okay, we’ll buy that, we’ll concede that you’re right...and that all of
us are wrong.
In fact, we’ll take it all back and admit the errors of our ways IF you do something first. Show us YOUR proof.
Tell us why we should believe the story you have swallowed, and show us
what you have to back up your claims! You’d better have
something more than a borrowed smirk when you tell us we’re way out in
left field. You better be ready to answer just one simple question:
Where the Hell is YOUR proof, true believers? Where the Hell is it?
not sure why the independent research community has not yet taken this
approach. Why does the burden of proof always fall on the researchers
when the evidence they present is ignored? Why is it their burden to
convince the non believers that there are legitimate questions about
9/11 that remain unanswered and hard evidence that we’ve all been
fooled, big time?
The facts about 9/11 that has been uncovered are dismissed by people who apply unbelievably skewed logic to their opposing argument. They believe a story when the only proof they use to validate the story is the story itself.
That’s it! All they know is what they have been told. News reports,
video, witnesses, whistle blowers, their own eyes and even common sense
contradict their beliefs. Still, these people continue to accuse the
researchers of being either crazy or traitorous. What kind of
convoluted reasoning has infected such a large segment of the nation?
is a battle for truth. It’s not a debate over conflicting
philosophies. It is a battle between those who are searching for
facts and those who choose to deny that a search is necessary. How long
do those in blinders have to be engulfed in flames before they believe
an independent researcher who warns them of the increasing heat?
level of denial and resistance can only be explained by understanding a
very basic human response: sometimes truth is too painful for people to
deal with. In this case, the perpetrators of 9/11 understood that most
Americans could not permit themselves to consider the involvement of
people within their own government in the dastardly attacks of that
day. They could never allow themselves to even consider such a
possibility, even though people within the administration had openly
professed that just such an event would benefit their cause!
responsible for the tragedy clearly understood this aspect of human
psychology. That is why they can hide in plain sight without fear of
discovery, regardless of how much new evidence is uncovered, and
regardless of how many legitimate questions are raised about their
connection to the attacks.
As a result, the only effective battle cry at this point must be: Where the Hell is YOUR proof?
take part in or observe countless discussions on 9/11; often in
Internet forums. I read the posts and hear the responses of thousands
of people who have not spent five minutes looking at the four years of
evidence that has been uncovered by independent researchers. Amazingly,
the same people feel fully qualified to dismiss new evidence with an
insult or to present their own un-researched, amateurish conclusions.
They know nothing about any information that might have been revealed
while their heads were buried in the black hole of the mainstream
media. But they constantly and vehemently insist that they do.
requiring a thimbleful of supportive evidence, these people continue to
accept the official story of 9/11. That hypocrisy simply has to end
just as our silence in the presence of that hypocrisy has to end. And
it has to end now.
The ball now must be thrown to the nay sayers, the folks in blinders who believe everything they are told by the WH and its media mouthpieces.
They must be held accountable for their unfounded beliefs by
challenging them for convincing proof that we are wrong. There is no
room here for even a fraction of the challenges that should be
made. Still, we have to start somewhere, so let’s at least call
for responses from the politically blinded to what follows:
In the late 1990’s members of the Project for a New American Century
wrote a treatise in which they foresaw a strategic "transformation" of
the U.S. military into an imperialistic force of global domination that
would require a huge increase in defense spending. "The process of
transformation," the plan said, "is likely to be a long one, absent
some catastrophic and catalyzing event—like a new Pearl Harbor." The members of this group, known as PNAC, were appointed to many high level positions in the new Bush administration.
Only months after they came to power, the United States experienced a
new Pearl Harbor. That has never been publicized or explained as
anything other than mere coincidence.
- Where the HELL is YOUR proof that Al Qaeda actually planned and carried out the attacks of 9/11?
4 years I have not seen a single bit of proof that Al Qaeda was
involved in those events. I have seen some snap shots of Arab men at an
airport. I was told a slew of things about these men. I was told that
the passport of one of the alleged hijackers miraculously floated to
the surface of the rubble, unscathed by the heat that had obliterated
thousands. I was told way too much about these men for me to believe
that the story was not prepared in advance. Two days was not sufficient
time for that kind of information to be uncovered and declassified by
our government. Not only did that reek of black ops, but to this day
almost nothing of what we were told about he nineteen hijackers has
been verified. The tape of Osama bin Laden shown by the
government raised questions about the actual identity of the man in the
film. As a matter of fact, I watched the so-called confession I
with a person whose native is Arabic. He told me that the English
translation was misleading. While he rejoiced at their success,
nowhere in the tape did Osama admit involvement in the attacks!
- Where the HELL is YOUR proof that Dick Cheney was NOT conducting drills on 9/11 that paralyzed Air Force responses to the real attacks?
is irrefutable evidence that Dick Cheney was running a completely
separate chain of Command & Control via the Secret Service on the
morning of 9/11, assuring the paralysis of Air Force and its ability to
intercept the hijacked planes. The Secret Service has the technology to
see the same radar screens the FAA sees in real time. They also have
the legal authority and technological capability to take supreme
command in cases of national emergency. In fact, Dick Cheney was the
acting Commander in Chief on 9/11. When publicly asked about the
exercises, that involved simulated attacks by hijacked planes against
the WTC, Cheney refused to comment, claiming the information was
- Where the HELL is YOUR proof that Tower 7 collapsed as a result of the attacks?
have not seen even a single computer model explanation as to how or why
Building 7 collapsed in the exact same manner as the two Towers that
were hit by airplanes. As a matter of fact Building 7, which sustained
no impact at all, was not mentioned in the Kean Commission report at
all. The FEMA report of the collapse remains inconclusive, unable to
offer a reasonable explanation for the collapse. Larry
Silverstein, owner of the complex publicly claimed he gave permission
for Tower 7 to be 'pulled,’ a fire department term for
demolished. Demolition of such a building would have required
weeks, if not months of preparation. No explanation has ever been given
for this baffling anomaly.
- Where the HELL is YOUR proof that 'put’ orders placed on the two Airlines involved in the attacks were mere coincidence?
have never seen the names of the people who placed those orders. I
don’t know that their identities have been uncovered of if they have
been questioned. I have not seen anyone vindicated of any foreknowledge
of 9/11 after making investments that would only pay off if the
specific airlines involved were to experience a drop in stock prices.
- Where the HELL is YOUR proof that Porter Goss knew nothing about $100,000 that was wired to Mohammed Atta?
cannot fathom why the person who was sitting with Porter Goss (our
current CIA Director) on the morning of 9/11, and who had wired
Mohammed Atta $100,000 just prior to the event, was never investigated.
This could be the smoking gun of smoking guns (if you believe that Atta was involved) that has been covered up from the start.
the Hell is YOUR proof that Donald Rumsfeld did not organize an illegal
military group that would "provoke terrorist attacks which would then
require '"counter-attack" by the United States?
what I know: In the Los Angeles Times, military analyst William Arkin
described a secret army set up by Donald Rumsfeld, similar to those run
by Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger and which Congress outlawed. This
"super-intelligence support activity" was designed to bring together
the "CIA and military covert action, information warfare, and
deception". According to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld,
the new organization was known as the Proactive Pre-emptive Operations Group, or P2OG. It was formed to provoke terrorist attacks which would then require "counter-attack" by the United States on countries "harboring the terrorists". Doesn’t that sound exactly like what happened on 9/11?
all I have room for, so I’ll sit back and wait for someone to send me
some proof, assuming that a single person out there knows where the
Hell it is.
THE BOTTOM LINE
bottom line is simple: I have not seen anything at all that makes me
believe the official story of 9/11, which, when considered on its own
merits, is so implausible as to be considered a bad joke. Anyone who
reads David Ray Griffin’s book, The 9/11 Commission Report Omissions and Distortions,
needs to go no further than the first chapter before this becomes
crystal clear. At that point it becomes very difficult to decide
whether to laugh at the ridiculous nature of the official story or to
scream with disbelief that the American public still buys into it.
once again, I ask the people who refuse to explore the findings of the
independent research community, - the only real investigation into the
events of September 11th 2001 - where the Hell is YOUR proof?
those of you who will try to discredit and ridicule this article on
forums or in calls to right wing radio, I say this: Research the events
of 9/11 in depth, come up with YOUR proof that the official version is
credible, or just shut up!
have a helluva lot of research to do before you are qualified to
intelligently debate the events of 9/11 with anyone who has spent more
than four years in the independent research effort. Don’t bother to
cite official sources to back up your points, since most of them have
been debunked. Try to understand that you can not use the authors of
the official version to support their own validity. It’s a dumb
researchers have done a great deal of valid work. They have been trying
to attract your attention so that you can examine it for
yourself. They are not asking you to take their word for
anything…they just want you to look at and think about what has been
uncovered. Do it for your own good, not theirs. Stop arguing
against their credibility until you have seen what they have seen, and
until you know what they know. Do some homework, then come and
talk, but be prepared to show us where the Hell you found YOUR proof,
and why we should believe you.
again, keep in mind that THE KEAN COMMISSION DID NOT CONDUCT AN
INVESTIGATION INTO 9/11! It was not their assignment! They were tasked
with making recommendations to improve national security based on the
official story. They were not asked to find out what happened. They
went in with an official account of the events, and were asked to make
their recommendations based on what the Bush/PNAC administration wanted
the public to believe happened on that day.
researchers are the only people who have investigated the events of
9/11. They have uncovered and presented mountains of evidence that
totally expose the official account for what it is; a cover-up, nothing

complicity in the events of 9/11 by rogue elements within American and
foreign governments. But the evidence does NOT point directly to a

taking. The books have been written, the speeches have been made,
the documents have been posted, the documentaries have been produced

research can go. All that remains is for the believers to respond.

told can convince anyone, even themselves that the official version of
9/11 explains to the nation and the world what really happened on that
So, where the Hell is YOUR proof, true believers? We’re all waiting to see.
