Seven years after the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden's wanted poster still hangs in the post office. It lists him as a suspect in two African embassy bombings but 9/11 is not mentioned. According to FBI's head of investigative publicity, this is because there is no hard evidence linking bin Laden to 9/11. We know that the invasion of Iraq was on the agenda from the start of the Bush administration. However, Jane's Online and the BBC both had reported that regime change in Afghanistan was also in the works prior to 9/11, and it seems clear that the planning and mobilization for the invasion on Oct. 7, 2001, took considerably longer than three weeks.
After the 9/11 attacks, the two senators who could give Bush the most trouble received letters containing U.S. weapons-grade anthrax, as did two major news organizations. Bush finally agreed to authorize an investigation on the condition that administration insider Philip Zelikow be the commission's executive director.
Even Arlen Specter did not believe that the failure to prevent the attacks was simply a failure to connect the dots. DIA project Able Danger had identified alleged plot leaders including Mohammed Atta, and the FBI was conducting 70 investigations of bin Laden-related activity within the U.S. During a period when the terror threat level was at a historic high, numerous highly credible whistleblowers have testified that these and other efforts were obstructed, sabotaged or ignored. A suicide hijacking had, in fact, been contemplated as a likely scenario, yet four jets were hijacked simultaneously with no mayday signals from the cockpits. Forty minutes after the towers were hit and it was clear the U.S. was under a coordinated air attack, no effort was put forth to defend the nation's capital.
It is also interesting that the twin towers and 47-story Building 7 somehow just happened to be symmetrical free-fall speed implosions. Only a handful of companies in the world can bring a skyscraper down in this manner and the odds that this type of collapse occurred on three instances in one day due to asymmetrical damage and fires on 9/11 is essentially zero. The molten metal found under the wreckage of all three buildings and the previously molten splatter found in WTC dust, which is chemically identical to the byproduct of the incendiary Thermate, presents solid forensic evidence that the buildings were professionally demolished.
The incredible lack of skepticism about 9/11 has been a result of the media's ongoing deference to the government: The press falsely promoted the idea that the 9/11 Commission was thorough and independent; and has been actively withholding coverage of the rapidly growing movement of highly credentialed Americans who question the official story of 9/11. There are Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and by year's end there will be 500 architects and engineers who will be calling on Congress to authorize a new investigation.
