Israeli involvement in 9/11: The Israeli military aircraft company tied to 9/11

A little-known and privately-held aircraft leasing company created by the Israeli military intelligence is connected to the Mossad-run airport security and passenger screening company at the center of the "false flag" terror network of 9-11.

Solving 9-11

I am not like those who claimed to be 9-11 researchers, but who now say they have "moved beyond 9/11." How can anyone abandon the pursuit of the truth about 9-11 before the crime has been solved?

Six years after the terrorist attacks in which some 3,000 innocent people died, not one victim's lawsuit has yet gone to trial. As a nation, Americans can not allow 9-11 to go unsolved.

How can we forget the hundreds of people who were roasted alive in the burning twin towers? How can we ignore the death and destruction that we, as a result, have wrongfully inflicted on the innocent people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Palestine?

Who can accept an unelected administration dragging our military from one illegal war to another in the utterly fraudulent "war on terror," which they have promised will last for generations?

Comment: What makes this article especially interesting is that it links to the site of Christopher Bollyn, a suspected COINTELPRO agent.

There are many well established COINTELPRO techniques that we have witnessed. One such technique is the building of a 'straw man' argument, which will draw in lots of interest, and can then be swiftly demolished by revealing its previously hidden fatal flaw, thus discrediting by association either a particular line of investigation, or the whole truth movement in general.

Bollyn was involved in an example of this, when he publicised a Pentagon false eye witness (Sam Danner). See "FLIGHT 77: Fake Pentagon eyewitness IDs Global Hawk". This is very interesting because he appeared attached to the Pentagon strike as an issue, yet didn't particularly address the most fundamental weaknesses of the official version of events. Clearly the events at the Pentagon are of prime importance, because the attack on the Pentagon is THE fundamental weakness in the official story. When a 9/11 researcher dismisses or otherwise diverts attention away from the Pentagon attack it is suggestive of a hidden agenda. In this latest lengthy missive (possibly penned by Bollyn himself), the Pentagon is almost completely ignored.

If one is judged by the fruit of one's actions, rather than words, then it is clear that the fruit of Bollyn's actions was to undermine and discredit the attempts to piece together the most crucial events on 9/11, at the Pentagon, and to shift the focus elsewhere.

Not only that, part of this latest article is reminiscent of a similar (and dubious) tale of Bollyn's where he described himself being attacked and arrested for pursuing the truth. See "Christopher Bollyn Harassed and Beaten by Undercover Cops?"
Such a story furthers several COINTELPRO aims:

- it reinforces the general undercurrent of fear that if one starts looking "they'll come and break down your door", thereby acting as a psychological disuassion towards further research.

- it somewhat hystericizes the whole search for truth, sows discord, and adds to the gradual but persistent undermining of the '9/11 truth movement'. See Alex Jones and 911 Scholars: The Parable of the Good Shepherd

- it also displays such twisted mental chicanery that the average spectator is completely baffled, suffers psychological paralysis, and has to withdraw in bewilderment from investigating any further.

- it appears to reinforce the agent's legitimacy: "look, I'm being attacked, I must be getting too close to the truth"

It is also totally bogus. Whoever is responsible for the 9/11 attacks (be it Mossad or the CIA or anyone else), had the ability to strike successfully into the heart of the most rabidly militarized and paranoid nation on earth, and would therefore have no problem whatsoever permanently silencing any individual whom they deemed truly dangerous, and it would be done in such a way that it appeared to be an accident.

It is interesting to note that those who take part in this dance have a tendency to inadvertently reveal their agenda in some way. Often this is in the form of projecting their own behaviour onto their targetted victim. So, it is interesting that the article has this to say:
At every critical point where the events and circumstances of 9-11 should have been investigated and discussed, there has been a Zionist, a dedicated devotee of the State of Israel, occupying the key position and acting as the controller and censor of evidence the gatekeeper of information.
A Gatekeeper indeed!

The article is very persistent in its pursuit of Israel as the main culprit. Clearly, Israel is a major power who has had the most to gain from 9/11, but once again a possible truth is mixed in with a lie or a general 'fudging' of the issue. There are at least a couple of tricky problems with the way this is presented:

Firstly there is no distinction made between the Zionist elite in control of Israel, and the Jewish population in general. One has to wonder whether this is deliberate, because certainly, anyone who vilifies the entire Jewish people not only puts their own safety in jeopardy due to the powerful Jewish lobby, but also exhibits an extreme lack of empathy for the average Jew who will inevitably be caught up in the consequences of their leaders' actions, whether they agree with and understand it, or not. Perhaps the idea is not so much to draw 9/11 truth seekers into a 'straw man' argument but rather to involve them in a dangerous and unproductive one?

The second problem: the writer hints that blaming Israel gets the US administration 'off the hook':
"if we allow our minds and our nation to be so easily hijacked by a pack of lies construed by a foreign power that terrorizes our citizens and extorts our government officials?"
when clearly the fundamental problem lies with the psychopathic individuals who wield power throughout the geopolitical stage. Without a full understanding of the pathological nature of these people, nothing else will add up. So, again, the article deftly steers around the crucial issue.

The issue of Israeli involvement in 9/11 is extremely sensitive and contentious and one that most sources simply will not touch under any circumstances. SOTT has come under heavy fire for addressing this issue in the past, yet in this article it is not so much 'touched', as rampaged across with a bulldozer. One has to ask why?

Because of the extremely high stakes attached to discovering the truth of 9/11, it is obvious that those who have something to hide have taken extreme and sophisticated measures to keep everyone in the dark, chasing their own tails. So to even begin to peel back the layers of lies mixed with truth it is vitally important that one learns to see these manouvres and that the tactics become familiar 'currency'. To such an end, perhaps Christopher Bollyn has done us all a favour in providing another example.

Once again we see exposed before us, the workings of Protocol 12 (see half way down the linked page), the supposedly 'hoaxed' document which nevertheless somehow keeps 'coincidentally' predicting events and strategies in uncannily accurate detail.

Syria rejects U.S. allegations on existence of nuclear activities

Syria has denounced "the fabrication and forging of facts" of the U.S. administration over the existence of nuclear activities in the Arab country, the official SANA news agency reported on Friday.

"Syria categorically rejects the U.S. allegations," the report quoted an official Syrian foreign ministry source as saying in a statement.

"Such a U.S. administration campaign is fundamentally aimed at deluding the U.S. Congress and the world public opinion by allegations to give an excuse for the Israeli raid on Syria in September last year," said the statement.

The Iran Agenda - Hysteria and Hypocrisy

Where does one start with the new wave of propaganda that passes for US news and opinion regarding Iran? It is clear that the aim is to flood the airwaves (and our brains) with so much insanely ridiculous propaganda that we throw up our hands, give up trying to fathom the details, and retreat into a numbed state of acceptance.

What we are seeing is pure propaganda and Newspeak, and for those who know something of Pavlov and his work on Transmarginal Inhibition, the scenario is classic. People, ordinary people, do not want to go to war if left to their own devices. The kick or shove to provoke a reaction for war must come from outside. History provides us with many examples from the last 100 years: the Maine, the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin, 911. In each case, the event galvanized public opinion, and war, which had been unthinkable the day before, became a certainty.

Russia swaps Libya debt for deals

Russia has agreed to cancel $4.5bn (£2.3bn) of Libyan debt in exchange for major contracts for Russian firms. The announcement came during a visit to Tripoli on Thursday by the Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

The two countries signed deals on energy co-operation, military assistance and construction of a 500km (310-mile) railway line in Libya. Libya was a big importer of Soviet weaponry during the Cold War, when it accumulated large debts.


China snubs CNN apology over Cafferty remarks

Beijing - China on Thursday snubbed an apology from CNN over remarks by one of its commentators as a wave of verbal assaults on foreign media raised concerns over coverage at this summer's Beijing Olympics.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu rejected CNN's explanation that commentator Jack Cafferty was referring to China's leaders - not the Chinese people - when he described them as "goons and thugs." CNN said it apologized to anyone who thought otherwise.

China and America: The Tibet Human Rights PsyOp

The human rights issue has become the centerfold of media disinformation.

China is no model of human rights but neither are the US and its indefectible British ally, responsible for extensive war crimes and human rights violations in Iraq and around the World. The US and its allies, which uphold the practice of torture, political assassinations and the establishment of secret detention camps, continue to be presented to public opinion as a model of Western democracy to be emulated by developing countries, in contrast to Russia, Iran, North Korea and the People's Republic of China.

Human Rights "Double Standards"

While China's alleged human rights violations in relation to Tibet are highlighted, the recent wave of killings in Iraq and Palestine are not mentioned. The Western media has barely acknowledged the Fifth "anniversary" of Iraq's "Liberation" and the balance sheet of the US sponsored killings and atrocities perpetrated against an entire population, in the name of a "global war on terrorism".
There are more than 1.2 million Iraqi civilian deaths, 3 million wounded. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) indicates a figure of 2.2 million Iraqi refugees who have fled their country and 2.4 million "internally displaced persons":
"Iraq's population at the time of the US invasion in March 2003 was roughly 27 million, and today it is approximately 23 million. Elementary arithmetic indicates that currently over half the population of Iraq are either refugees, in need of emergency aid, wounded, or dead." (Dahr Jamail, Global Research, December 2007)

The Sport Of Psychopaths - Does Cheney Hunt Human Beings?

Today Sott editors came across a short entry on Boingboing.net featuring a photograph of Dick Cheney posted on the "Outdoors" section of the official US government Whitehouse.gov website.

The photograph is captioned "Vice President Dick Cheney spends an afternoon fly-fishing on the Snake River in Idaho."

See for yourself:


And a close up:


The poster on Boingboing.net suggested that the reflection in Cheney's glasses bears a resemblance to a naked human being, which brings to mind that story of Cheney shooting his "friend" in the face. The explanation that Cheney shot Whittington "by accident" being something of a joke. It is clear to the careful observer that the reflection really is just Cheney's hand, however, since the topic has been raised, we simply could not, in all conscience, turn down the opportunity to point out Dave McGowan's article from The Center for an Informed America, where he muses on the idea that perhaps Cheney really does enjoy playing "The Most Dangerous Game" from time to time.

Comment: Highly recommended by Sott is Dave McGowan's book, Programmed To Kill.


China orders Tibetans 'reeducated' about Dalai Lama

BEIJING - In an effort to quell unrest, Communist Party officials are ordering Tibetans back to school.

Buddhist monks, civil servants and public school students have been instructed to attend special classes in the virtues of Chinese rule and the evils of their exiled leader, the Dalai Lama. In these classes, the Tibetans read and recite from texts that denounce the Dalai Lama as a "political reactionary" and a "betrayer of the motherland."
