I came across this article written by Peter Sault the other day so I emailed Peter to see if I could get his permission to repost it here on ATS. Well I received Peter's reply this morning with his permission to do so, so here it is in it's entirety. Any opinions welcome.

'Popular Mechanics' & Other CIA Front Organizations
From Peter Wakefield Sault

I have just read Jim Hoffman's response to Popular Mechanics 9/11 article that tries to debunk the truth about 9/11 by the use of the 'straw man' tactic. Although everything in his response is quite correct and exposes the straw man for what it is, I feel Mr Hoffman was dealing with this particular issue at the wrong level. Approached from a different angle the article tells us who really was behind 9/11 and who is still desperately trying to cover it up. This is how it works:-

'Popular Mechanics' is published by the Hearst Corporation, proprietor (chairman of the board). George R. Hearst grandson of William Randolph Hearst, sometime would-be builder of large aeroplanes.

The president and CEO of Hearst Corporation is one Victor F. Ganzi, since June 1st, 2002. Mr Ganzi is also an officer/director of the Hearst Foundation.

A close look at the titles of the books on the shelf behind Mr Ganzi in the photo (GANZI_2003_2_BW.jpg) reveals that some part of Mr Ganzi's early career was spent working for the owners of the Atlantic City Boardwalk and associated hotels and casinos; sometime friends of a certain Mr Frank Sinatra, as I recall.

Victor F. Ganzi is on the board of directors of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA), alongside Columba Bush, wife of Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida, brother of George W. Bush, President of the USA and son of George H.W. Bush, former DG of the CIA.

Victor F. Ganzi is a member of B.E.N.S. - "Business Executives for National Security" wherein we learn that "When it came time to evaluate In-Q-Tel, the CIA's innovative technology development enterprise, Congress turned to BENS"
In October 2002, B.E.N.S. received a "CIA Agency Seal Medallion" for its work on the In-Q-Tel program.

In-Q-Tel? It is described as "A new partnership between the CIA and the ‘private sector’(my apostrophes),” making it a classic front for traditional fascism and other American-style old-fashioned family values

A look at the names involved in In-Q-Tel quickly reveals it as a front for Zionism Central.

So, we should all be most grateful to 'Popular Mechanics' and its new editor James Meigs for indirectly telling us who the real perpetrators of 9/11 were by its rather long-winded "blind 'em with science" attempt to suppress the truth of behalf of those perpetrators.

Kind Regards Peter Sault,

It's good that Popular Mechanics has printed this material
It first indicates the alarm felt in high quarters at the burgeoning populism of the idea that 911 was a staged event, and that this knowledge is just moving from common internet dispersal and acceptance into common street knowledge, which in turn puts pressure on the main media in terms of reportage
It can no longer be swept under the carpet of 'internet paranoia' once the ideas are posted on banners and placards and form the current parlance of understanding amongst a rapidly growing portion of the population
Those of us who have studied the subject a long time have an individual and collective responsibility to continue pushing what we know about the case to the pyjama people out there on the street
A full knowledge and understanding of the events involved just about undermines everything on which the current world order stands and its catapulted rush to 'new'
Which is pretty revolutionary
So thanks to Popular Mechanics for delineating the case for debunking the 9/11 Truth
It gives us the main strands of the argument against the 'truth' and has already started a trend for 'debunking the debunkers'

great article. sauron.

i like this:

The term "yellow journalism" came from shoddy reporting from Hearst newspapers, most notoriously Hearst's promotion of the fake claim that Spain had blown up the USS Maine in Havana harbor (the pretext for the Spanish-American war)

One of the contributing authors of the Popular Mechanics article is named Benjamin Chertoff. Does anyone know if he's any relation to Michael Chertoff?

Though the term 'Yellow Journalism' is generally connected with 'shoddy journalsim' it is not the total story behind the term.

Hearst's publications used cheap paper made from his massive woodland holdings in the Southwest. This paper was made with massive amounts of acids to help break down the pulp and speed up the paper-making process. The paper retained a large amount of these acids which caused the paper to yellow very quickly.

Yes, the journalism was shoddy, but it was the paper that yellowed.

A sidenote would be that the 'Yellow Journalism' of Hearst's newspapaers
was used to create a popular hysteria surrounding the 'Devil's Weed', that 'Scourge of Youth', Marijuana.

Shortly after invention of an super-efficent Hemp decoricator, the possibility of an easily renewable, and acid free, paper-making process that didn't require hardwood pulp sources like those owned and used by Hearst. His newspapers began, and accomplished, a vile, and racist disinformation, psychological camapaign against Hemp/Cannabis/Marijuana which he easily won. That same propaganda is still in use today to reinforce the lies
against sane use of a multi-faceted plant.

The taint of Hearst's 'Yellow Journalism' remains.

While it is not suprising to see a popular magazine that is a form of a front, I am shocked to see the connection.

On a personal note, another front, the United States Department of Naval Intelligence. It is listed on local w2 forms for some agents and some non civil servants participatinging in black ops projects.

My aunt Delores(my father's sister)was mailed a W2 form stating it was from the US Dept, of Naval Intelligence, when she was in fact recruited by the CIA. To her suprise, myy aunt stated to my dad and his mother, my "nana", before she was brutally murdered, that there was no such organization.

I'm sure if we look, there are a ton of front organization on all sides of the fence.

So, A magazine that has been published since 1902 is a front for a the C.I.A. which has been around since 1947.

Interesting theory.

Or is it that they printed an article you doesn't fit your opinion so now they are a part of some larger conspiracy.

And I suppose that Germany was run by Nazis since the late 1800's.


Well, the Nazis still came to rule the country, did they not?

Because they still managed to get in and do exactly what they wanted, because they had the power to do so. Whether it's through political connections, or more conventional crime, or what-have-you, people can and will get exactly what they want, more or less when they want it.

Yes, he most definately is!

If anything, they are distant relatives. The connection, if any exists, dates back to the 19th century, before either family immigrated to the U.S. They have never met, and never spoken to one another. Michael Chertoff has never spoken with any member of the Popular Mechanics staff, nor with any member of Benjamin Chertoff's family.
