The American Reichstag Fire
"With every passing month without a substantial, even adequate, examination of just what happened on 9/11, I am more convinced that the reason such an investigation is not forthcoming is that the Bush White House can not survive it. It would appear that what we call a unique event is in reality nothing more or less than an American Reichstag Fire."
911 and Non-investigation
by Captain Eric May, Ghost Troop:
As a former Army officer, my tendency immediately after 911 was to rally 'round the colors and defend the country against what I then thought was an insidious, malicious all-Arab entity called Al-Qaida. In fact, in April of 2002, I attempted to reactivate my then-retired commission to return to serve my country in its time of peril. Those early views of mine have persisted to this very day -- with one key proviso: I no longer think that Al-Qaida is an Arab entity!
Like much of the informed world, I have come to think that the American people have been badly misinformed on the particulars of the 911 event that, if considered, would lead them to the kind of fundamental re-examination of their views, views which have been grafted onto their consciousness by a seemingly deliberate effort by the US corporate media.
Now I view the 911 event as Professor David Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor , views it: as a matter that implies either
A) passive participation by the Bush White House through a deliberate stand-down of proper defense procedures that (if followed) would have led US air assets to a quick identification and confrontation of the passenger aircraft that impacted WTC 1 and WTC 2, or worse...
B) active execution of a plot by rogue elements of government, starting with the White House itself, in creating a spectacle of destruction that would lead the United States into an invasion of the Middle East, an area of great importance geostrategically for its oil -- and important domestically because of the influence of Zionist elements over the US corporate media.
It has been my observation that the more people learn of the forensic irregularities, the more they come to agree with half the population of New York City, nearly half of whom -- according to an August 30, 2004 Zogby Poll -- believe one or the other of the two possibilities of official participation in the 911 event.
Ultimately, my mind was swayed by two things: first, contact with a Marine captain, Jeff Cross, who was a 911 witness, experiencing the event from five blocks away from the Twin Towers of WTC 1/2; second, the highly improbable coincidence of the Madrid bombings coming on a "numeric signature" date: 3/11 (2004). As a few astute observers have noted (without comment or continuation by the controlled corporate media), there are 911 days between 9/11 (2001) and 3/11, a notable fact, made all the more notable by the fact that 9/11 and 3/11 are numerically connected in another way: the first numeric digits. 9 is the square of 3, as 3 is the square root of 9.
Confronted with such amazing, disturbing facts, I fell back on military training -- and in my case that meant military intelligence, which was my field in the Army. Marine Captain Cross, like me, had been a stalwart American warrior, passionately devoted to his country and its causes, and after long and often inimical discussions (for his claims angered and confused me), I found nothing in what he said that did him any good. Indeed, his life had been rocked by the 911 event, not only because of what he saw, but because he strove, in the best hard-headed tradition of his service, to inform the corporate media and the investigatory agencies handling 911 of his observations and conclusions. "It just didn't happen the way they reported it," he told me again and again, explaining that he had merely tried to help by informing the powers that be of his insights, only to be repressed and threatened by those same powers.
Further, the numeric coincidences were so unlikely, taken together, that they argued for cryptoanalytic evaluation -- that is, evaluation as a potential "code" of events. I reckoned that, while I didn't attach any significance to the numerics (better to say the numerology) of the 9/11 and 3/11 events, others very well might. Secret societies that many -- if not most -- of the Bush Administration belonged to, such as the most-influential (and least-examined) Skull and Bones society, of which both George W. Bush and his father George H. W. Bush belonged -- and John Kerry, too, for that matter!
Working from these premises, I became more and more convinced -- slowly, unwillingly even, for no loyal military man wants to think the worst of his country's highest officials -- that the numeric signature was indeed a code, the exact kind of contrivance with which dark purposes have always been concealed from the unsuspecting majority.
It has been a year-and-a-half since my initial, disturbing discoveries of 911 irregularities, and my observations and analyses along the way have gone from corroboration to confirmation -- at least in my opinion as a trained intelligence professional. Along the way in my disturbing intellectual odyssey I have met most astute minds who believed as I had come to believe, each by a different avenue of insight. Few followed my particular road to enlightenment, but all agreed with my conclusion: the 911 event was in no way accounted for by the official line!
Keeping an open mind is the beginning of wisdom, and I stand prepared to reconsider my current view of 911 as a contrived causus belli for long-cherished imperial goals by the neocons, summed up in their Project for a New American Century (PNAC) strategic white paper: Rebuilding America's Defenses (RAD), issued a full year before the 911 Event, shortly before the dubious elevation of George W. Bush to the White House. I stand prepared to reconsider..., but with every passing month without a substantial, even adequate, examination of just what happened on 9/11, I am more convinced that the reason such an investigation is not forthcoming is that the Bush White House can not survive it. It would appear that what we call a unique event is in reality nothing more or less than an American Reichstag Fire.
I extend my compliments and best regards to MUJCA-NET and the 911 truth movement! Keep asking the tough questions!
