Guest Column: Evidence is ample to suspect government in 9/11 attacks

StoryImage( ‘/Images/Story//Auto-img-116483622125652.jpg’, ‘Photo courtesy of’, ‘World Trade Center Building No. 7 (WTC-7) collapsed in the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, hours after the Twin Towers had fallen. WTC-7 did not sustain impact from any airplane. The official 9/11 Commission did not address why 47-story WTC-7 collapsed. The “common” official explanation alleges WTC-7 was engulfed in fire. In photo (left), WTC-7 began its collapse after buckling from the center—as reporters noted that day—like a controlled demolition. WTC-7 housed the CIA, FBI, SEC and the INS. In a CNN interview, WTC complex owner Larry Silverstein ordered WTC-7 be “pulled.”’);

After years of questions, I recently (Oct. 14) held an open forum regarding the need for a re-investigation of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, that caused three World Trade Center buildings to topple, caused extensive damage to the Pentagon and claimed more than 3,000 lives. I was glad to see so many local citizens show up for the forum in search of answers concerning the attacks. My forum was, and will continue to be, for people who believe the evidence that points to government involvement in 9/11, as well as for those who oppose the information and evidence that I have gathered and presented. I believe people need to educate each other and discuss critical events such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks, whether they chose to believe what so many are now coming to know as a government conspiracy in the planning and carrying out of one of the most horrific acts of murder and destruction in the history of the world.

In the Nov. 15-21 issue of The Rock River Times, William J. Lee of Rockton suggested in his Letter to the Editor that I lack hard facts and irrefutable evidence in accusing our government of murder. Lee’s letter, No evidence to accuse government, Re: “Local citizens attend 9/11 forum,” by Jon Bystrom, also stated that the belief the government was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks is silly and that it’s evil to perpetrate such a conspiracy without hard evidence.

First, I thank Mr. Lee for reading Jon Bystrom’s story. Second, I completely agree with Mr. Lee’s stance and would also say it would be evil to accuse our government of such heinous acts without hard evidence. However, if you look at the facts, which have become very ample, and “hard,” it is very difficult to ignore them, leaving me, and scores of other people to demand answers as to why the “evil” seems to lie in hands of those who were elected to run this country. Below is a list of peculiarities and events that are being questioned by millions of people regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was the principal in a company called Securecomm, which headed security for the WTC, United Airlines and Dallas International Airport.

Vice President Dick Cheney took over command of NORAD days before 9/11.

It is impossible, according to many scientists and chemists, for hydrocarbon jet fuel (kerosene) to raise the temperature of steel high enough to melt it, causing structures constructed from it to fall.

Photos have been shown of people walking around in the hole of the North Tower of the World Trade Center, where more than 10,000 gallons of jet fuel were supposedly burning, which would surely have been deadly.

Many FAA personnel members and FDNY firefighters still remain under gag order today regarding the events that occurred Sept. 11, 2001.

Operation Northwoods, a widely-known “False Flag Operation,” presented a plan for our military to attack our U.S. Navy ships and blame it on Cuba to create a reason for the U.S. to invade the country in 1962. The circumstances and series of tactics of Operation Northwoods are eerily similar to the events on Sept.11, 2001, pointing to another “False Flag Operation.”

WTC Building No. 7, which also fell, “because it was on fire,” is not even included in the 9/11 Commission report.

Taped interviews with air traffic controllers from Sept. 11, 2001, have been mysteriously destroyed.

United States Secret Service failed to remove the president from his publicized location as the 9/11 terrorist attacks were occurring. If the attacks, which targeted the Pentagon and many say the White House, were completely perpetrated by foreign terrorists, the president would surely have been whisked away to an unknown location to secure his safety and the security of the nation. Instead, he calmly remained on national television in a Florida elementary school, where he articulately made a speech about how “America was currently under attack.” Many believe this to be a staged event for George W. Bush to gain popularity as an astute leader and wartime president.

On Sept. 11, 2001, many cell phones did not work at 30,000 feet.

FEMA was given sole authority to investigate the collapsed buildings, even though they are not an investigative agency.

Six of the alleged 9/11 hijackers have turned up alive.

Keep in mind that I did not fabricate the above information. I, as well as many people around the world, have researched this information thoroughly and found that all of it is well documented. I wholeheartedly believe that until the government can prove this information to be incorrect and give truthful answers as to why these facts point to nothing else but a government conspiracy, then I have no other choice but to stand by my conviction that 9/11 was an inside job and another “False Flag Operation.”

I stand by many in encouraging everyone to become involved with what our government is doing, regardless of the events at hand. Please, simply investigate these things for yourselves and remember that we, the citizens of the United States of America, elect the people that run this country. They are not appointed or hired. We need to make sure we know how this country is being run, and we deserve the truth as to how that is being done. We deserve to know why the evidence in events like 9/11 point to government involvement.

The truth is never too much to ask for. The phrase “Proud to be an American” must continue to hold water and not continue to spring leaks!

“It’s easy to imagine an infinite number of situations where the government might legitimately give out false information, it’s unfortunate reality that the issuance of incomplete information and even misinformation by government may be perceived as necessary to protect vital interests.”— Theodore Olson, whose wife, Barbara was murdered on 9/11/01.
