I must call B.S. on this guy (not the OP, the "special operative").

Given that Spec Ops don't even share with their families what they do or know, it is even less likely they would share it with an acquaintance or casual convo. Not to mention, most legit Spec Ops don't even talk about their exploits, period, except in vague reference.

Sounds like this guy is a poseur, or is playing a joke on you.


I don't know, although not exactly the same, I once happened to sit next to the CFO of a military branch. We talked the entire flight and he was quite open to many topics, I guess, so long as I asked the right questions in the right manner. I personally think he was just surprised that some random citizen was that privy.

And he told you all about SECRET operations and false flag attacks and who was really behind them? I think not.

First off, whoever thinks spec. ops (or whatever fancy terms you want to use) do not tell their family what they have been up to/operations they have been on - nonsense, they do tell their families, friends and people in the pub.

Why are they so open to talk, same knowledge journalists have - nobody will believe the public (as this thread shows) so you can tell them anything, get the load of your chest and nobody will believe when they blab. Just be careful who you tell.

And as always - if you think the thread doesn't add value to ATS then don't make it rise up the ranks by commenting on it. Looool!

No, and as stated not exactly the same thing...sometimes people just want to get things out.

Our discussion was closer to the similarities between the US economy and Ponzi schemes.

That's a story I would absolutely believe. The OP's ... not so much. And as I mentioned he contradicted himself, a sign that the story is made up.

What branch was he in if you don't mind me asking?

It sounds like the OP was talking to Jessi Ventura.
Just another nut job.

Ask yourself something.
Do you really think officials are going to talk with special ops troops and spill the beans in the course of mission planning?
Get real! Special ops personell are nothing more than adrenaline junnkies with big muscles.
They are no more trust worthy with secrets than the guy down the street.
The OPs person displays that.
If he knew something and was trustworthy he would not have said one word about 911.
He is nothing more than a bar room blabber mouth.

They moved this thread out of the 9/11 forums

But it got to the front page of ATS anyway


a reply to: Logarock
Since so many people don't believe this I am going to post more, he wouldn't say which one but one of these.

Special Boat Service (Her Majesty's Naval Service)
Special Air Service Regiment (British Army)
Special Reconnaissance Regiment (British Army)
18 Signal Regiment (Royal Corps of Signals, British Army)
Special Forces Support Group

Maybe the guy gave me one heck of a story, if he did it, it was a really good one.

You have to understand the progression of the total conversation most of which involved other stories the non-conspiracy type ones, but were interesting anyways, showing the guy traveled the world, and no it didn't involve a place were you consume alcohol. Just a public place.

In the end, it's his opinion, but he sure seemed to know stuff, and this was worth relating to ATS as this is what ATS is all about.


What have you related to ATS other than your ego and need for acceptance as someone who knows someone who knows something but you cant tell what they know or they will know?

I call BS on the paranoid rant of the childish OP. A true waste of my time.

A high school friend from my lacrosse team was a ridiculous Division 1 college athlete and ended up becoming a Navy SEAL.

I remember one time when he was back with his buds and we ran into them at a bar. He said you could tell who wasn't a SEAL by seeing who talked about being a SEAL in the bars. These guys just looked like regular dudes (albeit either jacked or looking like male models), although a lot of the girls swore they recognized them as pro surfers (which I found amusing)- point being some of these folks share some details with people like their spouses to an extent, and of course there are some who are going public with their service for book deals, etc. But - there is a statistic something to the effect of for every SEAL there are 1000 guys who say they are SEALs. I'm sure it is similar for other special operations communities.

Again - I am not at all questioning the OP, just providing my own humble two cents. I personally find your story intriguing. To that end I might add - my friend had like 10 deployments as an operator before he got out, and I know for a fact based on open source information a lot of these guys are burnt out / becoming at least somewhat disenfranchised (who as a human being wouldn't)? I think it is totally possible more leaks / whistleblowers will come to light as these unending wars continue on.

Sounds like the book I just finished by Ted Bell called "Spy" You should check it out, very entertaining.

Maybe he made it up, but the conversation DID happen.
And I could have kept it to myself, but ATS is great place to discuss such things

I hear ya man... I once talked to an ex-special forces dude and he told me that his wife's fathers grandmothers uncle's cousin's father's step-brothers dad told him that Santa Clause is real.

I was floored.

One a serious note, I worked with over 100 ex special force military members in my last job prior to retirement. Not a single one of them believed that 9/11 was an inside job.

As an ex military person myself, I am always highly suspicious of anybody who freely claims to be any sort of special operations, and then goes on to talk freely about "classified" information. Huge red flag for me

I remember watching a documentary on aircraft carriers and how we tested ours buy simulating an attack on pearl harbor, and it was a success. So they can't say they didn't know it was possible, they should have been ready for it. To the OP, I too was in the service and well acquainted with special operators and you are correct that they are well aware of these types of conspiracies, and there is nothing to do to stop it with out paying with your career or life. a reply to: mindseye1609
