9-11 Five Years Later

Current Discourse

Today marks the fifth anniversary of 9-11. The main stream news media and talk shows will spend the day rehearsing the events of five years ago, reminding us of the dangers of Muslim extremists and how the war on terror needs to be fought and even expanded.

Many Americans, though, are awakening to the possibility that things may not have happened exactly the way the government and media have told us. According to a recent poll, 36% of those asked believe it is “very likely” or “somewhat likely” that the U.S. government allowed the attacks to occur. http://www.scrippsnews.com/911poll

Christians are about the only group of citizens who have not realized that there is overwhelming evidence of government complicity. This despite the fact that we of all people should be open to the possibility of evil workings in the secretive corridors of power. If you are one of them, take some time to do some research into the issue.

  • Nice website. Those are some pretty massively huge fonts you have on your about page.

    We are happy to be back in town, and are looking forward to seeing you all again.

  • Thank you. Yes, there is a font problem. But if you press the “Ctrl” button while moving the wheel on your mouse up or down (I forget which way) the fonts can be made smaller. Try this as a palliative until we can fix the problem on our end.

  • May I also recommend this documentary: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7866929448192753501&hl=en
    Or http://www.loosechange911.com
    The first link will take you directly to the documentary (viewed online). For those who are new to this area of study, all the vast oceans of information can be overwhelming. This documentary is one hour and twenty minutes. It is concise, systematic and helps to put you on your feet and point you in the right direction. It also serves as a convenient means to pass on information, in a package, to others.

  • An interesting project for a high school student: take a poll asking whether people know 1. That Building 7 fell; 2. If yes, how it fell; 3. And why it fell. The few people I have spoken to about it were not aware there was a collapse of Bldg. 7. Astounding.

  • Wow! Again, I’m delighted with this newly discovered blog. Some good stuff here. I did a post on my old blog months ago on this 911 thing, and thought I was the only Christian weird enought to question the “official theory”. I’ve always enjoyed a Garrison (Costner) line in JFK.

    Allow me to paraphrase: “The glitter of the official lies and the epic splender of the thought-numbing [destruction of the great buildings] confuse the eye, and confound the understanding.”

    I’m not saying Bush is a murderer, just that the official story is a dandy, and the way the news treats the “conspiracy” guys is appalling. Read my post if you wish.

  • Joshua –

    I enjoyed your article (#6). It seems I am further along than you (I consider the official story to be a lie and believe there were government officials as well as others involved in 9-11), but I’m glad to see somebody else in the reformed world is willing to think about this issue.

    I take issue with you on an analogy you make:

    “Imagine a Nazi soldier who thought that Hitler was evil and that Jews were not a parasite: That would find a large German dissent; that would be unpopular in Germany; that wouldn’t make the news papers. Yet, that would be true.”

    Except for SS troops, most wehrmacht soldiers were not Nazis and I have never come across any evidence they the German landsers generally believed the Jews were parasites.

    Furthermore, like most Americans, you do not understand why many Germans were hostile to the Judaic forces during the Weimar Republic.

  • Michael,

    Thanks for the comments. I’m certainly not unwilling to believe that the story is a lie and that the government was involved. I just haven’t done a whole lot of research. I’m almost afraid to do more!

    You are correct in taking issue with my Nazi analogy. I will admit that that analogy was chosen for no particular reason, other than to make the point that unpopular views which don’t make the news have nothing to do with whether those views are true. I (ashamedly) know hardly anything about the Nazi soldiers, and shouldn’t have used that analogy without being sure of the historical accuracy of my primary analogue.

    You are correct about my common American ignorance of the issues. I do not “understand why many Germans were hostile to the Judaic forces during the Weimar Republic.” I’d love to read on these issues if you could recommend a place to start.

    Thanks for reading my post!

  • One pt I wanted to make to st Keith said by way of correcting the grammar. It is not a question of believing the official story vs resorting to a conspiracy theory. It is a question of accepting the conspiracy theory given by the establishment, vs some other conspiracy theory.

  • Joshua –

    “I’m certainly not unwilling to believe that the story is a lie and that the government was involved.”

    That’s the attitude. I have nothing against those who look into 9-11 and conclude that the official story is the best conspiracy theory (it’s hard to believe someone would come to that conclusion, but that another issue), but do not give a pass to those who are unwilling to look into the issue with an open mind. If history and our theology teach us anything, is that those in power who have an agenda or those who appear to be in power and are controlled by those who have an agenda, are capable of just about anything. The belief in American exceptionalism is a perversity.

  • If I’m not mistaken, I believe cross-country flights have a pilot, co-pilot and navigator? Often, these guys are former military that are still in excellent physical shape. So here’s another consideration that I find hard to believe — that four skinny Arab boys could take out the crew with such paltry weapons, having to enter the cockpit single-file don’t forget, and it’s not exactly a room you can run into; and that they would succeed four times out of four. As far as I know, no one has discussed this problem.

  • Mr. T,

    With all due respect, I think you may be overlooking the possible involvement of Mission Impossible masks, which the Arab boys could have implimented. This could have given them the disquise of a flight attendant which would enable them to enter the cockpit quite casually.

    Don’t tell me you haven’t seen MI. Haven’t you benefited from the redemptive work of Ethan Hunt’s character?

  • That part of the story always bothered me a bit. I don’t think you could rob a liquor store with a box cutter, let alone hijack a plane with multiple passengers and a crew that, as TH points out, is probably not entirely out of shape physically and rather difficult to access.

  • For what it is worth, I asked this same question of a United Airlines pilot recently, ‘how could some skinny Arabs with box-cutters murder an entire flight crew?’ His response was that there were a different set of instructions for handling hijack situations prior to 9/11, basically give them what they want so they won’t crash the plane. I said does that mean you were supposed to just offer up your necks to the knives? ‘No, but the hijackers would have separated the crew into different parts of the plane, blah, blah blah.’ I also asked how a Cessna certificate gives you the ability you to fly a 757 500mph, eight feet off the ground, after doing a 270 degree turn. ‘Well you see we know the hijackers had spent hundreds of hours on flight simulators….’ This pilot was also formerly in the Navy. He had never even heard of the USS Liberty.

  • If the crew was separated before being killed (and of course one of them would have insisted on staying at the helm, right? otherwise the goal of “not crashing the plane” would be negated) then that conversation would be clearly recorded on the black box. So let’s hear it.

    Moreover, how does that scenario add credibility? There weren’t enough Arab boys to double-team all the male crew members. And now, they’ve lost the element of surprise.

    Come to think of it, how did they figure out that the boys were carrying box-cutters?

  • Oh, you didn’t read the report? They found some unmelted box cutters lying next to 20 tons of warped steel at ground zero and fingerprinted them.


  • Doug– yes, good catch. It’s about half-way down the article:

    “Investigators discovered the passport of Satam al Suqami, one of the terrorists aboard American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane to hit the World Trade Center.”

    Besides being fire-proof — how did they figure out that Satam al Suqami was “one of the terrorists”? Did he leave a note in his passport?

  • The name “Satam al Suqami” wasn’t on any flight manifest, so what makes anyone think he was on American Airlines Flight 11?


    Condoleeza Rice claimed no one could have imagined terrorists would have hijacked a plane and turned it into a missile, even though the military had run war games simulating just that situation, war games that occurred during her tenure as National Security Advisor.

    And George Bush claimed not once, but twice, that he saw the first plane hit the first building before reading the pet goat story at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Florida. Problem is there was no video available at that time(unless he had a closed ciruit government feed).

    These lies are so blatant, so palpably false, it makes one wonder if our masters intend to let us sheep know, none too subtly, that they will determine reality for us. Our job is to keep pretending to believe they are telling the truth, and they will keep pretending to tell us the truth. Just keep doing what you are told to do, believing what you are told to believe, and nothing will happen to you.


  • For the past few years I have put up a post on 9-11, but the following will have to suffice for 2009.

    I still consider the official 9-11 story to be ridiculous. But this is despite the fact that Charlie Sheen does so too. I have no interest in what he and his fellow Hollywood freaks have to say on this or any other subject.

  • Well I think Josh’s point is not that we can learn something from the intellect of a jewlywood bimbo, but rather to be mindful of surprising correlations of forces by which providentially the city of man helps defeat itself.
