- If it was JUST the sudden collapse of the towers at freefall speed after small fires burned for only about an hour.
- If it was JUST the unexplained collapse of building 7 that looks exactly like a controlled demolition.
- If it was JUST the changing/inconsistent timelines from NORAD, FBI, Cheney, et al.
- If it was JUST the President remaining in a well-publicized location for so long surrounded by children.
- If it was JUST the "put" options traded before 911 betting that stocks on the airlines would fall.
- If it was JUST the fact there is no footage of a plane hitting the pentagon.
- If it was JUST the missing final minutes of the Flight 93 tape, the reports it was shot down, and the scattered wreckage found miles away.
- If it was JUST our trillion dollar defense system being unable to protect the Pentagon with an hour's notice, despite Andrew’s Airforce Base being only 10 miles away.
- If it was JUST the huge steel beams being broken and launched hundreds of feet horizontally from the building while everything was completely pulverized to dust (even the top section of floors, not the bottom getting "crushed").
- If it was JUST the testimony of hundreds of firemen and others saying they heard multiple explosions in the towers before they collapsed.
- If it was JUST that George’s brother Marvin Bush was the head of Securacom, the company that provided security for the World Trade Center (he resigned September 10, 2001).
- If it was JUST an inexperienced pilot executing a difficult maneuver while descending, a maneuver that insured he would hit the least populated section of the pentagon, one that was just finishing renovations, and still somehow not diving into the roof but hitting flat on the side without skidding and crashing along the way.
- If it was JUST that Bush and Cheney pressured the (freshly-anthraxed) leadership of the Congressional opposition into delaying the 9/11 investigation for months and fought against the creation of an independent investigation for more than a year.
- If it was JUST the conflict-of-interest-populated 911 Commission ignoring considerable evidence, not even bothering to mention that Building 7 collapsed.
- If it was JUST that the vast majority of the 400 questions posed by September 11th families who fought for and gained an independent investigation, which the 9/11 Commission adopted as its roadmap, were completely ignored in the Commission hearings and the final report.
- If it was JUST the fact that Commission member Max Cleland resigned, condemning the entire exercise as a "scam" and "whitewash."
- If it was JUST the U.S. agenda justified by the attacks.
- If it was JUST Operation Northwoods from 1962 in which the U.S. planned fake terrorist attacks to justify us attacking Cuba.
- If it was JUST the Able Danger program that had identified Muhammed Atta before 9/11, and the fact that this information was not allowed to be passed on to the FBI.
- If it was JUST that FBI field officers in Minnesota and Arizona had also suspected terrorists training as pilots and that their investigations were stalled or halted.
- If it was JUST the fact that our air defense was apparently compromised and confused by WarGame drills schedule for that same morning, drills involving hijacked planes being flown into buildings, despite administration claims that “No one could have imagined planes into buildings” - a transparent falsehood upheld repeatedly by Rice, Rumsfeld and Bush.
- If it was JUST that the plane that allegedly hit the Pentagon somehow was strong enough to penetrate a hole thru 3 rings of steel-reinforced concrete and yet weak enough to “completely disintegrate,” as we’re told.
- If it was JUST the absence of any video footage showing a large passenger plane hitting the Pentagon, despite that building most likely having a lot of security cameras.
- If it was JUST the fact the minutes after the attack, the FBI confiscated the security camera footage from the nearby gas station and hotel.
- If it was JUST that our entire chain of command for response to a domestic attack - George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Myers, Montague Winfield – all found reason to do something else during the actual attacks, other than assuming their duties as decision-makers.
- If it was JUST that the various responsible agencies - NORAD, FAA, Pentagon, USAF, as well as the 9/11 Commission - gave radically different explanations for the failure (in some cases upheld for years), such that several officials must have lied; but none were held accountable.
- If it was JUST that multiple allied foreign agencies informed the US government of a coming attack in detail, including the manner and likely targets of the attack, the name of the operation (the "Big Wedding"), and the names of certain men later identified as being among the perpetrators.
- If it was JUST that certain prominent persons received warnings not to fly on the week or on the day of September 11th.
- If it was JUST that two of the alleged ringleaders who were known to be under surveillance by the CIA also lived with an FBI asset in San Diego (but this is supposed to be yet another a coincidence).
- If it was JUST that airplane black boxes were found at Ground Zero, according to two first responders and an unnamed NTSB official, but they "disappeared" and their existence is denied in The 9/11 Commission Report.
- If it was JUST that U.S. officials consistently suppressed and destroyed evidence (like the tapes recorded by air traffic controllers who handled the New York flights).
- If it was JUST that whistleblowers (like Sibel Edmonds and Anthony Shaffer) were intimidated, gagged and sanctioned, sending a clear signal to others who might be thinking about speaking out.
- If it was JUST that Larry Silverstein purchased the Twin Towers just months before the attacks and immediately purchase special insurance to specifically cover terrorist attacks.
- If it was JUST that officials who "failed" (like Myers and Eberhard, as well as Frasca, Maltbie and Bowman of the FBI) were given promotions.
- If it was JUST that 120+ senior military, intelligence service, law enforcement, and government officials, 310+ engineers and architects, 70+ pilots and aviation professionals, 200+ professors, and 200+ 9/11 survivors and family members have gone on record to question the official story of 9/11…
If it was JUST one or two of those things…… maybe you chalk it up to bureaucracy and confusion and coincidental unlucky failure and whatever else…. But the fact that it’s all of these things?? While this might not give us all the answers to “well, what really happened then?” it does at the very least prove that the Official Conspiracy Theory peddled by the government and supported by the 911 Commission cannot be true.
Since posting this, the numbers in that last bullet point have changed:
The number of senior military, intelligence service, law enforcement, and government officials on record as questioning 9/11 has gone from 120 to 140.
The number of engineers and architects on record as questioning 9/11 has gone from 310 to 530.
The number of professors on record as questioning 9/11 has gone from 200 to 300.
The number of pilots and aviation professionals on record as questioning 9/11 has gone from 70 to 120.
The number of 9/11 survivors and family members on record as questioning 9/11 has gone from 200 to 210.
