and a former Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Harvard
As far back as 2001 we wrote an article dealing with
the inconsistencies regarding the "official story" the
government put out concerning the attack on the World
Trade Center (WTC). [Please see our article, "The
Events of September 11, 2001: What's Going On?"]
Since then, however, I have steered clear of any involvement
in the so-called "conspiracy theories" surrounding the
collapse of the WTC - largely because so many of them
were connected to anti-Semitic myth-making of the worst
kind. Nonetheless, a growing number of people have surfaced
over the years who can by no means be labeled deranged
or "crazy" who have advanced FACTS concerning the
events of 9/11 that have nothing to do with a "Jewish
Conspiracy" and that go far beyond what one might call
speculation or supposition.
BUT, as has been the case regarding
the assassinations of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King,
those who have dared to advance these FACTS have
been derisively labeled "conspiracy theorists" and summarily
dismissed by the mainline press and mercilessly pilloried
by the government.
However, if what these men and women are saying concerning
the events of 9/11 is true, one can only be left reeling
at the implications of what's going on — i.e., that the
men who constitute what Michael Parenti and William Blum
call America's "Secret Government" are possessed of a
form of evil that fairly boggles the imagination; the
kind of evil that would in no way blanch at igniting a
war in the Middle East for the purpose of killing off
five-sixths of the population of that area so that they
can take control of it without having to deal with a pesky
population which is constantly attempting to "get in the
If that's so, then it makes
the alliance that both Israel and the church have made
with the American super-state truly an ABOMINATION:
one that God fairly labels an "Agreement with Hell."

While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone
A "conspiracy theory" no longer means an event explained
by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or
even a fact, that is out of step with the government's explanation
and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT (Russia Today) have
been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times
simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New
York Times does not report and the US government does not
In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government
and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy
theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation
that we should ignore.
It seems that Americans can get more reliable information
as to what's going on in the world today from Russian
sources rather than from American ones. It's a world that
has been turned upside-down for millions and millions
of Americans. [Please see our article, "The
Corporate State and the Mass Media."]
In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to
the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents
the interests of authorities.
The purest example of how Americans are shielded from truth
is the media's (including many Internet sites') response to
the large number of professionals who find the official explanation
of September 11, 2001, inconsistent with everything they, as
experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering,
architecture, fires, structural damage, the piloting of airplanes,
the security procedures of the United States, NORAD's capabilities,
air traffic control, airport security, and other matters. These
experts, numbering in the thousands, have been shouted down
by know-nothings in the media who brand the experts as "conspiracy
[Please see our article, "The
Events of September 11, 2001: What's Going On?"]
This despite the fact that the official explanation endorsed
by the official media is the most extravagant conspiracy theory
in human history.

Let's take a minute to re-acquaint ourselves with the official
explanation, which is not regarded as a conspiracy theory despite
the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy. The "official
truth" is that a handful of young Muslim Arabs who could not
fly airplanes, mainly Saudi Arabians who came neither from Iraq
nor from Afghanistan, outwitted not only the CIA and the FBI,
but also all 16 US intelligence agencies and all intelligence
agencies of US allies.
In addition to outwitting every intelligence agency of the
United States and its allies, the handful of young Saudi Arabians
outwitted the National Security Council, the State Department,
NORAD, airport security (four times in the same hour on the
same morning), air traffic control, caused the US Air Force
to be unable to launch interceptor aircraft, and caused three
well-built steel-structured buildings (including one NOT
hit by an airplane), to fail suddenly in a few seconds as a
result of limited structural damage and small, short-lived,
low-temperature fires that burned on a few floors.
The Saudi terrorists were even able to confound the laws of
physics and cause WTC building seven to collapse at free fall
speed for several seconds, a physical impossibility in the absence
of explosives used in controlled demolition.
The strange collapse
of Building Seven at the WTC
The story that the government and the media have told us amounts
to a gigantic conspiracy, really a script for a James Bond film.
Yet, anyone who doubts this improbable conspiracy theory is
defined into irrelevance by the obedient media.
Anyone who believes an architect, structural engineer, or
demolition expert who says that the videos show that the buildings
are blowing up, not falling down, anyone who believes a
Ph.D. physicist who says that the official explanation is inconsistent
with known laws of physics, anyone who believes expert pilots
who testify that non-pilots or poorly-qualified pilots cannot
fly airplanes in such maneuvers, anyone who believes the 100
or more first responders who testify that they not only heard
explosions in the towers but personally experienced explosions,
anyone who believes University of Copenhagen nano-chemist Niels
Harrit who reports finding unreacted nano-thermite
in dust samples from the WTC towers, anyone who is convinced
by experts instead of by propaganda is dismissed as a kook.
Please see our article on nano-technology, "Morgellons
Disease." While this article deals with
nano-technology and the development of new diseases,
the article also reveals the kind of mindset that lurks
behind this new and frightening technology.
In America today, and increasingly throughout the Western world,
actual facts and true explanations have been relegated to the
realm of kookiness. Only people who believe lies are socially
approved and accepted as patriotic citizens.
Indeed, a writer or newscaster is not even permitted to report
the findings of 9/11 skeptics. In other words, simply to report
Professor Harrit's findings now means that you endorse them
or agree with them. Everyone in the US print and TV media knows
that he/she will be instantly fired if they report Harrit's
findings, even with a laugh. Thus, although Harrit has reported
his findings on European television and has lectured widely
on his findings in Canadian universities, the fact that he and
the international scientific research team that he led found
unreacted nano-thermite in the WTC dust and have offered
samples to other scientists to examine has to my knowledge never
been reported in the American media.
Dr. Niels Harrit
Even Internet sites on which I am among the readers' favorites
will not allow me to report on Harrit's findings.
As I reported earlier, I myself had experience with a Huffington
Post reporter who was keen to interview a Reagan presidential
appointee who was in disagreement with the Republican wars in
the Middle East. After he published the interview that I provided
at his request, he was terrified to learn that I had reported
findings of 9/11 investigators.
To protect his career, he quickly inserted on the online interview
that my views on the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions could be
dismissed as I had reported unacceptable findings about 9/11.
The unwillingness or inability to entertain any view of
9/11 different from the official view dooms to impotence many
Internet sites that are opposed to the wars and to the rise
of the domestic US police state. These sites, for whatever
the reasons, accept the government's explanation of 9/11; yet,
they try to oppose the "war on terror" and the police
state which are the consequences of accepting the government's
explanation. Trying to oppose the consequences of an event whose
explanation you accept is an impossible task.
If you believe that America was attacked by Muslim terrorists
and is susceptible to future attacks, then a "war on terror"
and a domestic police state to root out terrorists become necessary
to make Americans safe. The idea that a domestic police state
and open-ended war might be more dangerous threats to Americans
than terrorists is an impermissible thought.
A country whose population has been
trained to accept the government's word and to shun those who
question it is a country without liberty in its future.

Unlike the French or the Italians, for whom conspiracies
are an integral part of government activity, acknowledged
by all, Americans have been temperamentally prone to discount
them. Reflecting its audience, the press follows suit.
Editors and reporters like to offer themselves as hardened
cynics, following the old maxim "Never believe anything
till it is officially denied," but in truth, they
are touchingly credulous, ever inclined to trust the official
version, at least until irrefutable evidence - say, the
failure to discover a single WMD in Iraq - compels them
finally to a darker view.
Once or twice a decade some official deception simply
cannot be sedately circumnavigated. Even in the 1950s,
when the lid of government secrecy was more firmly bolted
down, the grim health consequences of atmospheric testing
of nuclear weapons in the South Pacific, Utah, and Nevada
finally surfaced. In the late 1960s, it was the turn of
the CIA, some of its activities first exposed in relatively
marginal publications like The Nation and Ramparts,
then finally given wider circulation.
Even then the mainstream press exhibited extreme trepidation
in running any story presuming to discredit the moral
credentials of the U.S. government. Take assassination
as an instrument of national policy. In these post-9/11
days, when Dennis Blair, the director of national intelligence,
publicly declares, as he did before the House Intelligence
Committee, that the government has the right to kill Americans
abroad, it is easy to forget that nothing used to more
rapidly elicit furious denials from the CIA than allegations
about its efforts, stretching back to the late 1940s,
to kill inconvenient foreign leaders. . . .
Maybe now the decline in power of the established corporate
press, the greater availability of dissenting versions
of politics and history, and the exposure of the methods
used to coerce public support for the attack on Iraq have
engendered a greater sense of realism on the part of Americans
about what their government can do. Perhaps the press
will be more receptive to discomfiting stories about what
Washington is capable of in the pursuit of what it deems
to be the national interest. Hopefully, in this more fertile
soil, Syd Schanberg's pertinacity will be vindicated at
last, and those still active in politics who connived
at this abandonment will be forced to give an account.

The New York Times this morning has a particularly
lush installment of one of the American media's most
favored, reliable, and self-affirming rituals -- it's
time to mock and pity Those Crazy, Primitive, Irrational,
Propagandized Muslims and their Wild Conspiracy Theories,
which their reckless media and extremists maliciously
disseminate in order to generate unfair and unfounded
hostility toward the U.S.--Glenn

When I let it be known that I was going to tell Dad,
who was director of a U.S. Senate sub-committee at
the time, about the fatal tortures that the South
Koreans were carrying out in our torture chambers,
I was told that if I ever breathed a word about this
to anybody I would never get home alive. Nowadays,
such information does get out, but I doubt that anybody
in the know about 9/11 would ever divulge what really
happened and certainly not who was involved in it,
because they would have a life expectancy measured
in hours. I have some tales I could tell about that,
but this would not be healthy for me. After everybody
involved in 9/11 is dead, however, I think it is highly
probable if not certain that the full truth will come
out. There are good reasons why State Department documents
remain classified for fifty years. -- Robert

John McCain, who has risen to political prominence
on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably,
worked very hard to hide from the public stunning
information about American prisoners in Vietnam who,
unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate
career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into
federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most
revealing information about these men buried as classified
documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically
imagine as a determined crusader for the interests
of POWs and their families became instead the strange
champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.
Almost as striking is the manner in which the mainstream
press has shied from reporting the POW story and McCain's
role in it-- Sydney Schanberg,

candidate buried information about POWs left behind
in Vietnam," American Conservative, July
