Imagine that you flipped a coin several hundred times in succession and it came up heads every single time. Or maybe you got tails a handful of times, but the vast majority was heads… Aside from being a pretty lucky person, would it be an occurrence that you could consign to the realm of pure coincidence? The odds of it happening are not statistically impossible, but it would a rare, possibly freak, occurrence. 9/11 is a lot like that particular coin analogy. There are little pieces of fact pertaining to that day that cannot be categorised into any evidential category. The only box in which they belong is “coincidence”. But what if, like the coin, it is followed by another odd coincidence… and another… and another… When do you stop viewing this huge number of oddities as merely coincidences and ask if they are signs of something more?
Here, I am going to assemble some of the more interesting oddities surrounding 9/11. It is by no means a wholly inclusive list (as listing them all here would take forever and there are new ones being discovered every day!), it is simply an example of the more ‘strange’ aspects of 9/11. These aspects have been analysed endlessly by the Truth community, for their significance. Is it a huge number of mere coincidences or a collective portent of prior knowledge or foresight? You decide…
Aside from numerous examples, including: FEMA's "Emergency Response to Terrorism" booklet (1997) and the U.S. Department of Justice/National Sheriffs’ Association's participant manual “Managing Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents: An Executive Level Program for Sheriffs” (funded by the Department Of Homeland Security and produced in June 2000), which both show the WTC targeted by a gun scope’s cross-hairs, it is possible that those in positions of power may have had other, more unconventional, premonitions.
On the morning of September 11, 1941, a groundbreaking ceremony took place to officially begin construction of The Pentagon. The attack on The Pentagon took place 60 years to the day (almost to the hour) of the groundbreaking ceremony! On September 5 (six days before 9/11), Donald Rumsfeld asked the Senate to approve the D.O.D. 's 2002 budget request. It was to be the largest defence spending increase since the latter days of the Cold War. There he talked about the importance of U.S. homeland defence, warned about the threats of terrorism and missile attacks, and later reported that he was confident that his budget request would pass. Rumsfeld also had a list of “Rules” that he had distilled from 50 years of service. On January 30, 2001 (5 days after taking his office), he posted these rules on the D.O.D. official website. The rules were removed in October 2002. These rules were only ever modified once… on September 10, 2001. Twenty four hours before 9/11, Rumsfeld added one single new rule: “America ain’t what’s wrong with the world”. Let us also not forget, that on this exact same day, Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon had lost track of $2.3 TRILLION DOLLARS of military spending.
Four days before 9/11, George Bush’s brother Jeb Bush signed a two year executive order (01-261) placing Florida under a state of emergency. With the Bush family under the spotlight, it is also interesting to point out that Marvin Bush joined Securacom's board of directors, a security firm who has previously done security studies for WTC, Dulles and United. The company eventually became Stratesec and provided security at the World Trade Centre from 1995 to 2001 (right up to the towers collapsed).
The day before 9/11, Bush senior (Ex CIA director, former President, and President Bush's Dad) was in Washington D.C. at a Carlyle Group business conference (The Carlyle Group is inextricably linked to 9/11, just google the name!) and continued such meetings on the morning of 9/11. Present at all these meetings was Carlyle investor and Bush family friend: Shafig Bin Laden, brother of Osama Bin Laden.
It is also well documented that the Bin Laden Family websites, emails, links and domain names were due to expire on Sept 11 2001.
On the subject of websites and technology, the U.S. government deployed an anti-terrorism taskforce on September 5, 2001, to pull the plug on over 500 websites (many with Arab and Muslim connections). Some people have even placed significance on the Microsoft Wingding fonts of the period. It became something of a net phenomenon when it was discovered that words and names related to 9/11, typed out using Wing Ding and Web Ding fonts, showed a ‘possible code’. The rumours were later debunked, however some key 9/11 words still show oddities in the font, for example: NYC, NEW YORK and OSAMA BIN LADEN. Some have continued to highlight the significance, given the connections between Microsoft and the ‘Agenda’ corporatocracy.
On the subject of such business connections, it is also strange that at least half a dozen of the passengers on the ‘alleged’ planes used on 9/11, were employed by Ratheon: a company with intricate links to the US Air Force and Boeing, AND responsible for numerous technological advances in aviation including GPS guidance and systems that allowed for precision approach and landing of pilot-less aircraft.
Whilst discussing aviation, it also appears that the airline companies who owned the ‘alleged’ planes of 9/11, appeared to engage in future trading that would have been directly affected by the events of the day. From the 6th to the 10th of September 2001, a huge number of ‘put’ options were placed on United Airlines, Boeing and American Airlines stock, betting that the price would fall sharply. The trades are called "puts" because they involve at least 450,000 shares of American. What raised the flag of suspicion, was the (more than) 80 percent of orders being "puts", far outnumbering "call" options, those betting the stock would rise. After 9/11 it was claimed that the financial arm of “terrorist organisations” had financed the ‘puts’ because they were the only ones who could have known in advance! Many people subsequently pushed for an investigation into insider trading. After several investigations and court cases, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) stated that they “found no evidence that anyone who had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks traded on the basis of that information”. It always seemed inevitable that this (like many other inquiries, commissions and investigations in history) would be a foregone conclusion. Thankfully, the knowledge gleaned from such matters is also a foregone conclusion: it is damning merely in it’s existence.
In July, two months before 9/11, a 40 year old FAA rule allowing commercial airline pilots to be armed was rescinded. Also note that the hijacking weapon of choice: box cutters, weren't allowed pre-9/11 by the airlines industry. Strange also that the ONLY person to have witnessed the use of box-cutters (upon which the ENTIRE ‘official’ account bases this particular evidence), was right wing commentator and author Barbara Olson. Not only did she have a super-duper cell phone that allowed perfect contact (twice) from the plane to the ground (allowing for an account of events), but she was also the wife of U.S. Solicitor General Ted Olson . A man who admitted in public that the U.S. government lies and a man who helped stopped the Florida recount that helped Bush win the 2000 election. So a reliable testimony there then…
On the subject of the ‘hijackers’, we have the crucial evidence that ‘proved’ the culpability of those involved. Atta's luggage, which contained incriminating evidence, was the only luggage of the 81 passengers aboard Flight 11 that didn't make it on the plane. Convenient… Despite the buildings collapse through structural damage caused by the intense heat and explosion of the jet and it’s fuel, etc, etc, etc, the passport of alleged Flight 11 hijacker, Satam Al-Suqami, is reportedly found in the rubble still soaked in jet fuel by an unidentified man in his 30's only "minutes" after the plane allegedly crashed into the North WTC Tower. The passport is in remarkably good condition given the circumstance. Let’s also not forget there are indications that some of the ‘hijackers’ were still alive after 9/11. How did they manage that, if they were involved?!!
In part 2, I will look at what some have cited as bizarre or uncanny “predictions” of 9/11.
