UPDATED - IN CAPS AND IN BOLD
(Thanks to Handy Guy for setting me straight)
A question often asked at many a magic show. The art of illusion has made millions. It has also cost millions. Of lives.
The best example that is concreted in facts is OPERATION CANNED GOODS.
An excerpt from "A Man Called Intrepid"(1976 by William Stevenson)page 45, which is a quote from Sir William Stephenson(Intrepid)- "The Second World War began with wirelessed intelligence......It was made to appear that Polish troops attacked a German radio station early on the morning of September 1, 1939. German forces then fired on Polish-occupied points in the Free City of Danzig in 'self defense'....."
"The so-called Polish aggressors were inmates from German concentration camps, taken by Heydrich and dressed in Polish uniforms, then given fatal injections. A few survived to tell the story. They knew they were doomed when they were told to get into foreign uniforms-it's hard to dress a corpse. They were trucked to the frontier and injected with lethal Skophedal. Then they were spread out and riddled with bullets."
"The code named given these men was CANNED GOODS. That was Heydich's touch. Until he died, he boasted that he started the Second World War"
"The ruse worked. The New York Times reported that regular Polish Army troops took part in an attack on German Positions and that this was the signal for a general offensive by Polish forces."
I think one of the many reasons that Americans find it hard to believe that our own Government would even plan such things is that we see the Government as a reflection of us through the belief of Democracy. Allow me to dispel that Polly Anna belief.
First there is OPERATION NORTH WOODS
. This was a plan made up by the Joint Chiefs of Staff
that involved staged attacks on Americans so as to appear to be done by Cuba.
The fact that they would even think of such a thing is abhorrent enough. They then tried to get the plan action approved by President Kennedy. I think it is hard today to understand how much the "Red Scare" affected America. Though I have not seen it, maybe the film "Good Night and Good Luck" gives the viewer a feeling of the times. Then again one only has to see with open eyes, how today the Bush Regime uses fear to start a never ending War, bankrupt our Treasury and take away our Rights. People, being Human, can rationalize any justification for any action.
Second there is the revelation that Bush proposed to Prime Minister Blair
that a U.S. Military plane be painted in UN colors and destroyed over Iraq, so as to give the impression that it was downed by the Iraqis. This attack would be used as a further excuse to attack Iraq. With the "Press" in full lapdog mode at the time, how soon would have the New York Times dutifully reported the Pentagon Press Release ‘Polish Armed Forces…...” errr I mean "SADDAM ATTACKS UNITED NATIONS" as reality?
Again, I wanted to post a encompassing article on 911. However I think maybe it was best to just start the conversation. My 1st objective was to try to show that the American Government was capable of such an action, in a sense that they would think of doing such a thing. I think I accomplished that with the above. One only has to see how fanatical the bunch in control is right now to come to the conclusion that in their minds any means justify their ends.
My second objective will focus on the lies.
Before I respond to the comments by others in the previous post, I will state my theory on what happened that day.
1) I've come to the conclusion that the person George W. Bush did not know of the attacks. He is just a puppet.
2) The attack was carried out by some of the people named as the hijackers, and they were aided and abetted by the people in control of the our Government with a big assist by Mossad, the Israeli Spy Agency.
3) The 3 buildings in New York fell because of controlled demolitions, not because of the effects of fire.
4) Flight 93 was flown into the ground by the hijackers.
5) The Anthrax attacks(remember them? "Our" Government does not, nor the media) were carried out by Mossad and sympathizers.
5)The attack on the Pentagon? I just don't know what to believe. I think the video that was released was doctored. It is a red herring, that many bit into. I almost did.
Yet after reflection I decided that the video is put out so as to discredit those who like I believe the Government was culpable. I think there will be more videos coming. There were 84 cameras on the Pentagon that day. So after the "Conspiracy Theorists" state that the "object is smaller than the aircraft" they will release a video depicting flight 77 hitting the Pentagon. Or a doctored video of such.
Like this one.
The 911 Truth Movement
is picking up steam and the Bush Regime and the Corporate Media will do anything to discredit
it. It’s not called PsyOps for nothing.
I posted the previous video so I could see what others had to say about it and 911 in general. I wanted to know if others would say what every MSM outlet did. I paraphrase, "This video of flight 77 hitting the Pentagon will disappoint many 911 conspiracy theorists". Then, of course the usual derision of such people who question Government accounts followed. CNN and MSNBC did not disappoint the Controllers. Now for my responses to the comments in the previous post.
The majority agree with the view first put by Jeremy that the Government was not competent enough to carry out such an attack. Although I can't be for certain I think most of the majority believe that the Bush Regime lied about the reasons for the Iraq War. It has been portrayed by "Senate Hearings" as a Intelligence mistake. I say that they lied about the reasons, created the environment for a growing insurgency and the coming official partition. They are indeed very competent.
Grover Norquist one of the Chief Republican strategists said he wanted to shrink the size of government so it would drown in a bathtub. With the record deficit they are well on the way to the last gurgle. By "Government" Grover meant things like, Medicare and Social Security, not the Spying and Killing departments.
They have made BILLIONS folks. Hardly incompetent. So I guess I agree with John Good in the respect that there are real brains behind Bush.
Still I am comforted that none of the comments had the naive thinking that, "well they are not that evil".
Ellie - Your theory is close to mine.(see #2 above)
Pete - I saw the Power of Nightmares and the focus of it was on the beliefs and rational of 2 blocks of religious extremists, that have close originating ties. I don't remember 911 being mentioned, though I may be mistaken. It was a while ago.
I think I have already posted at your place or maybe it was Antony's some links that report on the heavy Israeli spy activity not much before, during and after 911.
I will post them in a coming article. For now I wanted to start with the preposition that high ranking members of the Government has indeed thought of such acts before and that they are capable of rationalizing such acts.
I did read the link you provided. I do disagree with the authors assertion, "The central argument put forth in "The Power of Nightmares" is that al Qaeda as an organization does not really exist." While the use of fear was the main theme,I don't remember the film depicting Al Qeada not existing. I find it also interesting that he does not discuss any of the characters in the film. Or any of the historical incidents depicted.
I tried to find the links to the film so others may view it and judge for themselves.
Though I made a few copies on disc(it's a 3 part film 1 hour each) after viewing it months ago, I can only find the first "Baby It's Cold Outside"
and third "The Shadows In The Cave"
parts online. Maybe someone else has a link to the second part?UPDATE- HANDY GUY (SEE COMMENTS) SET ME STRAIGHT ON TWO THINGS. THE 3RD PART OF THE FILM DOES INDEED FOCUS ON 911 AND CLAIMS THERE IS NOT AN ORG CALLED AL QEADA. THERE IS AN AL QEADA IN MY OPINION. SPOOKY PETE YOU WERE RIGHT ON THOSE TWO ASPECTS AND I WAS WRONG.FOR A RECENT REVIEW(MAY 16TH) OF THIS FILM AND OTHERS(INCLUDING PLAYS) VISIT THE HANDYGUY.
A LINK PROVIDED BY HANDYGUY WHERE ONE(EVEN DIAL UP EVIDENTLY) CAN VIEW ALL 3 PARTS.
Hell Pig - Thanks for the apology. I believe just about everyone can be redeemed.
As long as there is not foul language and you keep up adult like comments I will not delete your comments. Oh, and welcome to reality.
Peace ya all!
