I've got more, but this will do for now. I'll post more later on.
1) The entire United States intelligence community knew of the 9/11 attacks before hand, including the fact that commercial jets were to be used as
bombs; they also knew the approximate dates and possible targets but were called off their investigations. Western intelligence had been aware of
plans for such terrorist attacks on U.S. soil as early as 1995. The plan was known as "Project Bojinka." It was known to both the CIA and FBI and
was described in court documents in the trial in New York of Ramzi Yousef and Abdul Murad for their participation in the 1993 bombing of the World
Trade Center (WTC).
2) There is incontrovertible evidence that the US Air Force all across the country was comprehensively "stood down" on the morning of September
11th. Routine security measures, normally in place, which may well have been able to prevent the attacks, or reduce their impact, were suspended
for one hour while the attacks were in progress, and re-instated once they were over.
3) Neither the Joint Chief of Staff, the Secretary of Defense nor the President of the United States acted according to well established emergency
protocols. Acting Joint Chief of Staff General Richard B. Myers stated that he saw a TV report about a plane hitting the WTC but thought it was a
small plane. So he went ahead with his meeting. By the time he came out of the meeting the Pentagon had been hit. Whose responsibility was it to relay
this emergency to the Joint Chief of Staff?
The Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was at his desk when AA77 crashed into the Pentagon. How is it possible that the National Military Command
Center, located in the Pentagon and in contact with law enforcement and air traffic controllers from 8:46 a.m., did not communicate to the Secretary
of Defense, also at the Pentagon, about the other hijacked planes especially the one headed to Washington? After he was notified, why did he go to the
The actions of the President, while the attacks were occurring, indicate that he deliberately avoided doing anything reasonably expected of a
President wanting to protect American citizens and property. Why didn't the Secret Service inform him of this national emergency? When is a President
supposed to be notified of everything the agencies know? Why was the President permitted by the Secret Service to remain in the Sarasota elementary
school? At 9.05, nineteen minutes after the first attack and two minutes after the second attack on the WTC, Andrew Card, the presidential chief of
staff, whispered something in President Bush’s ear. The president did not react as if he was interested in trying to do something about the situation.
He did not leave the school, convene an emergency meeting, consult with anybody, or intervene in any way, to ensure that the Air Force completed it’s
job. He did not even mention the extraordinary events occurring in New York, but simply continued with the reading class. His own explanations of his
actions that day contradict known facts.
In the case of a national emergency, seconds of indecision could cost thousands of lives; and it's precisely for this reason that the government has
a whole network of adjuncts and
advisors to insure that these top officials are among the first to be informed, not the last. Where were these individuals who did not properly inform
the top officials?
In short, the CIA, the DCI, the State Department, the President, and key figures around him in the White House, were ultimately responsible for doing
nothing in the face of the mounting evidence of an impending threat to U.S. national security. Incompetence is a highly improbable explanation.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
