WRH: The "Proof" and "National Security" - Who WAS on those Aircraft?

20/10/2001 5:03 am Sat

The "Proof" and "National Security".

Our government keeps bandying about the claim that they have proof that Osama Bin Laden is behind the attacks on the World Trade Towers and that this proof justifies going forward with the invasion of Afghanistan that has been openly discussed in the foreign press since last summer, long before there were any "terror attacks".

But, despite early promises to show this evidence openly, as would be required in any American court of law, the government of the United States has withheld the evidence, insisting that it cannot e revealed for reason of "National Security". Yet, this evidence has supposedly been shared with the governments of other nations to pursuad them to join the cause of bombing a lot of Afghani non-combatants.

So, in truth, the ONLY people this evidence is secret from are the people being asked to surrender their taxes and their children to pay for this adventure.

The requirement that proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt against an accused be fully public is a cornerstone of our American culture. In casting that requirement away in the haste to carry out the already planned invasion of Afghanistan, the government of the United States has already conceded defeat to those who planned the World Trade Tower attacks.


Supposedly, not one of the four cockpit voice recorders from the 9/11 planes has been found. The recordings made of FAA flight controllers talking to aircraft are also missing. With the exception of one still frame taken at an airport in Seattle of an Arab-looking man at a gate, no videos from any of the departure gates of any of the four hijacked flights has been released to show Arabs getting on board those flights. The flight attendant who telephoned the ground gave the seat numbers of the men who hijacked her plane and those seats were assigned to names which do not appear on the FBI's list of Arab suspects; a list the FBI persists in waving about even though it has admitted that the hijackers were using skillfully forged IDs with stolen identities. And even more telling, the names of the alleged hijackers released by the FBI do not even appear on the published passenger lists of the four hijacked flights. Indeed the passenger lists are notable for the scarcity of any Arabic sounding names.

  1. The FBI list of alleged hijackers
  2. Passengers of American Airlines Flight 11
  3. Passengers of American Airlines Flight 77
  4. Passengers of United Airlines Flight 93
  5. Passengers of United Airlines Flight 175

Okay, so just who WAS on those aircraft?

In the rush to sell an invasion of Afghanistan, our government and media have been waving a bunch of middle eastern faces at us on the TV; photos of the dangerous hijackers who ploughed their stolen aircraft into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Flight 93 was supposedly flown by Captain Saeed al-Ghamdi and a second hijacker named Bukhari, while Abdulrahman al-Omari was supposed to be at the controls of flight 11. Going from these suspects, links are being created to point the finger of blame at various targets, including but not limited to Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, etc.

Ah, but the best laid plans gang aft aglay and there's a problem! Mr. al-Omari, a pilot with Saudi Airlines, just walked into the US embassy in Jeddah to demand why he was being reported as a dead hijacker in the American media. Likewise Mr. al-Ghamdi is still alive and well and at his job for Tunis Air, while Mr. Bukhari has been dead for two years now, according to the Saudi Gazette in a story dated September 18th, 2001.

In a recent development, the BBC is reporting that the transcript of a phone call made by Flight Attendant Madeline Amy Sweeney to Boston air traffic controls shows that the flight attendant gave the seat numbers occupied by the hijackers, seat numbers which were NOT the seats of the men the FBI claimed were responsible for the hijacking!

Even CNN is now reporting that the men who hijacked those aircraft were using phony IDs, using the names of real people still living in Arab nations in the middle east.

So, one fact is now apparent. If those who hijacked those airplanes were using stolen identities, then we don't know who they were or who they worked for. We can't. It's impossible.

Now, people who are intending to commit suicide normally don't worry about whether anyone knows their real name, and it is here that some other odd aspects of this case take on a new meaning.

We are told that the group that planned and carried out the hijackings and subsequent attack on the World Trade Towers were highly trained (possibly by the CIA) experts, with knowledge of how to steal identities, forge fake IDs, and compromise White House and Air Force One security codes.

Yet at the same time, we are being told that these same hijackers spent the night before the attack getting drunk in bars, making noise, screaming insults at the "infidels", and doing everything they could to attract attention to themselves. They used the credit cards issued in their stolen names, allowed their driver's licenses with the stolen names to be photocopied, and used public library computers to send emails back and forth using their stolen names signed to unencrypted messages about their plans to steal aircraft and crash them into buildings, then decorated their apartments with absurdly obvious props such as a crop dusting manual to the point where the whole affair reads like a low budget "B" detective movie from the 1930s.

In short, these men did everything they could to make sure everyone knew who they were, or more to the point, who they were pretending to be.

Because the IDs used by the hijackers were phony, we cannot know who they really were or who they really worked for. But what is apparent is that those who planned the hijackings and the attacks on the World Trade Towers went out of their way to leave plenty of clues pointing to citizens of Arab nations of the middle east.

We don't know who planned the attacks on the World Trade Towers.

But we do know who they wanted us to think they were.

We do know who they intended America to blame for the attacks.
