    It was the kick-off in shutting down freedom (always in the name of freedom, of course) and setting up a dictatorship. Why else was the patriot act written in advance BEFORE 9/11? Take a look at the TSA scandal. It's only the tip of the iceberg. To really understand why it was a turning point it's helpful to know a few things about that event: Please watch this first video linked here. It’s only one minute. You’re going to be impressed. This is a local news video of a witness named Kenny Johannemann testifying to explosions that happened in the basement of one of the WTC towers. While he is testifying you still see both of the twin towers burning behind him in the background. This was live footage and it's only ONE minute long. Go ahead and watch this here:

    Those explosions were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling the tower. You say, “wait, this doesn’t fit anything I know, maybe there is some other explanation for those explosions in the basement.” True. This is just one piece of evidence, but it’s a piece of evidence that raises a lot of questions. You didn’t see this on TV either. Does that prick your interest?

    The government has promoted a “theory” that maybe the fuel from the jet trickled down the elevator shafts into the basement and subsequently exploded. Could this be? Let’s continue and look at other evidence. Barry Jennings was another witness that got stuck in Building Seven during 9/11. Remember, Building Seven was NEVER hit by a jet. In Barry's case an explosion blew out a stair well below him leaving him hanging and stranded for hours until the fire department got him out. Both the twin towers went down during the time he was stranded. Building Seven, a tall building in it’s own right (47 stories tall), came down at around 5:20 (later that day). Fortunately, he was saved. Watch his account here:

    Again, the explosions he talked about were from charges that were set up to weaken the structure preparatory to pulling down this building. You say, “Hold On! Building Seven housed the FBI and the CIA offices, so who would have access to set up explosives in there? There has got to be another explanation.” True. This is just one piece of evidence which raises more questions. Again, you didn't see Barry’s testimony on TV.

    William Rodriguez, head janitor at the towers, was meeting with some people in basement level #1 (the highest of several basement levels) when an explosion from below pushed everyone upwards, causing ceiling tiles to fall and walls to crack. Just as William started to express to others what he thought that explosion might be, an airplane hit and shook the building from above. His story begins at 9:31 here:

    (Google Video Key Words: William Rodriguez)

    Now, let’s look for other different kinds of evidence. Steve Jones, a physicist, obtained WTC dust samples from the collapsed WTC towers from people who lived nearby. He analyzed it and found that the dust contained residues of explosives. Steve Jones first became famous when he became known as the “voice of reason” during the Pons / Fleischman "Cold Fusion" debacle of 1989, if you remember that. For a Nuclear Physicist, like Steve Jones, analyzing dust samples for explosive residues is a relatively simple task. It may be similar to asking a PhD mathematician to do arithmetic. He reported his detailed findings here in Boston:

    (Google Video Key Words: Steve Jones Boston)

    In this lecture, you recall, he offered other scientists to take parts of his samples in order to analyze the "red chips" that he had recently discovered. That was December 2007. These specks have now, in fact, been confirmed to be unexploded “nanostructured super-thermite” particles. That confirmation is not just a smoking gun IT IS THE GUN. See the article here:

    The actual paper in its entirety can be found here in PDF form. Be sure to click the “download” link here:

    If you get into the actual paper, you learn that the explosives may actually have been sprayed into position like paint or insulation!

    Steve Jones’ findings may not fit the stories that you have heard in the news but it does lend support to what Johannemann, Jennings and Rodriguez testified that they saw. You say, “The news media isn’t going to shoot itself in the foot by making something up.” So how do we rectify all the contradictions that we were told in the news? Could Steve Jones and these witnesses be glory-seeking kooks trying to make a name for themselves?

    Then take a look at this:

    Here is a BBC report announcing the collapse of the Solomon Building (the official name for Building Seven). There is only one problem. The reporter standing at the scene and announcing this didn't realize that, in fact, you could still see Building Seven still standing off to the right. It actually collapsed within about 20 minutes after that live report. Watch it here:

    Youtube thumbnail

    (YouTube Key Words: BBC Solomon slips – you get more hits by excluding “slips”)

    How did the BBC know in advance that Building Seven would collapse? The fact that it was announced in advance is strong support that the flow of information on this tragedy was being controlled.

    Were the people at the BBC the only people privy to this information? Probably not. Larry Silverstein was the leaseholder of Building Seven. In a 2002 PBS documentary he talked about how he discussed the Building Seven situation with the fire department and how the decision was made by that department to "pull" it. Well, there is one problem with his testimony that you may want to consider. It takes about a week to rig a building with explosives before you pull it. So are buildings constructed with built-in explosives just in case they need to be blown up in a hurry? Building Seven went down that same day. Whoops! Watch Larry's testimony from the PBS documentary here in this short clip:

    Youtube thumbnail

    (YouTube Key words: PBS Silverstein)

    Incidentally, luckily for Larry, he insured his property in the nick of time just six months before September 11th! It was a sweet deal. So who orchestrated this terrorist event anyway? They had to get past the FBI and CIA and prepare at least three buildings for demolition as well as direct the activities of men with box cutters (if they even existed). It’s clear from the evidence presented here so far that at least some of the media was in on this. What else could explain the BBC blunder? They had to control the information to those of us who might not like the idea that a few thousand people had to be killed in order to fulfill some kind of agenda. What’s in it for these people that were “in the know?”

    Aaron Russo was a famous movie producer who became best friends with one of the Rockefeller family members (Remember “The Rose” and "Trading Places" starring Eddie Murphy?). This is the same Rockefeller family that is a large shareholder of the Federal Reserve Bank -- a private company that loans money to our government and contributes to our huge national debt. You see the name “Federal Reserve” at the top the dollar bill. Yes, we're talking about THAT Bank! Anyway, the upshot of this friendship was that in the year 2000 (11 months before 9/11) Aaron Russo learned from his Rockefeller buddy that there was going to be an "event". He was told that out of this event the U.S. would go into Afghanistan and look for Bin Laden in Caves and then the U.S. would go into Iraq. His fascinating testimony about this "event" starts at 26:45 here in this interview:

    One more thing. In February 2009 a 44 story Chinese skyscraper caught fire and thoroughly burned into a crinkling cinder. However IT DID NOT COLLAPSE. By comparison WTC Building Seven had a few small fires and was never hit by a plane. It DID COLLAPSE. See that article here:

    (Google Key Words: China 44 fire consumes)

    Amazingly, all this evidence is only the tip of the iceberg. Each of these are separate independent pieces of evidence from unconnected sources. When taken together they paint a clear picture. You are a juror in a court of law. What would be your verdict? Remember, the word “conspiracy” is not in the dictionary to describe a fiction.

    No, not at all. It was important, of course. But it didn't cause any massive or notable change that otherwise would not have happened. For example, Pearl Harbor triggered the US into the war. From that moment it was really a world war. Even that was not really a turning point in world history. Not even Stalingrad was that. I think the invention of the Internet is a real turning point in history. We do things very different since it opened. 9-11 didn't really change anything.

    No, False Flag operations are not to be confused with genuine turning points in History. The staged collision of the unmanned aircraft into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the controlled demolition of World Trade Center 7 were not turning points in History, but they were attacks against the American people. After these attacks, the government of the U.S. convinced the Congress and some of the American people to accept the loss of their civil rights by passing the Patriot Act (similar to the Enabling Act under the Nazis in Germany), and by going to war in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    This showed the world just how vulnerable the worlds greatest superpower is to a handful of well organized guerrilla or terrorist cells. Then it was used as justification in war crimes from Iraq to Guantánamo Bay. Not to mention the USA using it as a excuse to trod on civil liberties in the "land of the free".

    How many more times is this question to be asked?


    So I'll repeat this stuff. The Yanks now know what it's like to be hit at home. Ok for them to bomb the the shite out of anyone who disagrees with them!

    After that?? The GOP plant Bush went into Iraq taking our poor little poodle Blair with him.

    Let them both rot and die soon.

    And the evil empire asap.

    It was the first time in our history that American citizens had been attacked by a foreign armed religious citizenry. After these three attacks and a failed fourth attack that same day, the security for our country had to make tremendous changes on how people could move about the world for business or pleasure.

    No. The Industrial Revolution was a turning point in history. 9/11 was just the tragic symptom of our already crummy relationship with middle eastern countries.

    It's analogous to Pearl Harbor. It was a vicious sneak attack by international fascist belligerants marking the start of a global war: WW IV, aka, The Anti-Jihad War, aka The War on Terror.

    FYI, WW III was the Cold War which ended in 1991 w/ the dissolution of the USSR.
