You mention the London bombings - Have you watched 7/7 Ripple effect and if so I would like to hear your thoughts on it.

Being British you will probably have seen this item in the news today.

www.bbc.co.uk...

Doesn't it seem strange to you that in both 7/7 and 9/11 truthers are anxious to point the finger at anyone bar Islamic extremists ?

Yes thanks for the link I have seen this on the news - It is the main news.
No - I have never thought it strange that truthers do no point the finger at Muslim extremists you could reverse that statement also.
I do not take anything on face value. I am inconclusive unconvinced as to say what really occured until I know better.

You seem to be very confused. There was no "shoot down authorization" from the President until after UA 93 had crashed. The fighters out of Andrews had "shoot down" authorization from VP Chaney, but there are serious questions about the legality of that. It really didn't matter as the attack was already over anyway.


You need to review your sources. Norm Mineta specifically stated in his 9/11 commission hearing testimony that there was a shoot down order before flight 77 even hit the Pentagon. He just didn't know it at the time. Here's the exact transcript:

*******************************

"MR. HAMILTON: We thank you for that. I wanted to focus just a moment on the Presidential Emergency Operating Center. You were there for a good part of the day. I think you were there with the vice president. And when you had that order given, I think it was by the president, that authorized the shooting down of commercial aircraft that were suspected to be controlled by terrorists, were you there when that order was given?

MR. MINETA: No, I was not. I was made aware of it during the time that the airplane coming into the Pentagon. There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, "The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out." And when it got down to, "The plane is 10 miles out," the young man also said to the vice president, "Do the orders still stand?" And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, "Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?" Well, at the time I didn't know what all that meant. And --

MR. HAMILTON: The flight you're referring to is the --

MR. MINETA: The flight that came into the Pentagon.

MR. HAMILTON: The Pentagon, yeah.

MR. MINETA: And so I was not aware that that discussion had already taken place. But in listening to the conversation between the young man and the vice president, then at the time I didn't really recognize the significance of that.

And then later I heard of the fact that the airplanes had been scrambled from Langley to come up to DC, but those planes were still about 10 minutes away. And so then, at the time we heard about the airplane that went into Pennsylvania, then I thought, "Oh, my God, did we shoot it down?" And then we had to, with the vice president, go through the Pentagon to check that out.

MR. HAMILTON: Let me see if I understand. The plane that was headed toward the Pentagon and was some miles away, there was an order to shoot that plane down.

MR. MINETA: Well, I don't know that specifically, but I do know that the airplanes were scrambled from Langley or from Norfolk, the Norfolk area. But I did not know about the orders specifically other than listening to that other conversation.

MR. HAMILTON: But there very clearly was an order to shoot commercial aircraft down.

MR. MINETA: Subsequently I found that out."


************************

So the order of events was...

a) Interceptors from Langley were scrambled to cover DC

b) The order to shoot down commercial aircraft was issued by the president (NOT Cheney). Mineta doesn't know about this order or about the interceptors yet.

c) Flight 77 approached D.C.

d) Someone asked Cheney if the shoot down order still stood and Cheney confirmed it did. Mineta doesn't know what this means at the time.

e) Flight 77 hit the Pentagon

f) Mineta then finds out that interceptors were scrambled from Langley.

f) They got word that another hijacked arcraft (flight 93) went down over Pennsylvania. At the time everyone wonders if it was shot down so they went to the Pentagon to to get confirmation. Mineta is especially horrified because he knows about the interceptors but doesn't know about the shoot down order yet.

g) Mineta later finds out there was a presidential order to shoot down commercial aircraft.

If you can see any other way to interpret his testimony (that is, which doesn't include armies of sinister secret agents covering up sinister plots to take over the world), by all means let me know. When I say to the OP that he needs to read the 9/11 Commission report to learn facts like this, specifically to avoid bickering over ridiculous conspiracy claims, how am I wrong, exactly?

I haven't watched it so I cannot comment on it one way or the other. As far as conspiracy mongoring is concerned, the best tactic to put a halt to the ignorance seems to be to know many things about one or two conspiracies, rather than know one or two things about many conspiracies. I'll comment on 9/11 conspiracy hoaxes and the "moon landing is fake" conspiracy hoaxes as I know the ins and outs of the issues, but I'll have to leave issues like the JFK assassination conspiracies (and the London bombings conspiracies) to others.

That is fair comment - I tend to be eclectic and draw on many interests. - Art, poetry. goemetry, history, mythology, astronomy, philosophy - I do so to gain a bigger view of the whole - Yet you are right about concentrating on a few issues as so being better versed in those issues.

Apparently, you haven't noticed that the Commission Report does not include Minetta's claims. The reason is that his time line was wrong. It has been proven conclusively wrong by several different methods. I don't want to go through all of the details as it's off topic here in this thread.

Minetta's confusion that the conversation pertained to AA 77 was also wrong due to his confused time line. That conversation was about UA 93. The distance information was coming from a TSD type display, not an actual Radar. If you're familiar with "Tiger wall" you'll understand. You're apparently taking your information from "truther" sources. The POTUS "shoot down authorization" did not occur until about 10:16. This was over 30 minutes after AA 77 hit the Pentagon. It was also after UA 93 had crashed, but the PEOC did not know that yet. That entire episode involving the Navy Commander (Minetta's young man) was about information coming from the Secret Service via TSD type information. UA 93 was estimate to arrive at Reagan National in the 10:2x time frame...

If you want more info it needs to be in another thread, but I'm not going to open up that can of worms for a "truther" barrage of crap. There is plenty of correct information available at the appropriate sites...

ETA: Here's a good synopsis. If you'll read it all you'll see that Minetta was very confused about many issues both at the time of his Commission Interview and the timing of the arrival of the Langley fighters over DC. They did not arrive until about 10:00 and both the radar and audio tapes confirm this... Most of Minetta's timeline was just completely wrong and there is ample proof...

I have read a number of david ray griffin books


Well, lets see. Firstly griffin is a moron and a story teller. He has churned out other peoples research and pawned them off as his own. He is a complete nob.

NVQ? National Vocational Qualification? Waste of time my friend. Sitting next to one of the 37,000 graduates who also can't get a job places your chances up their will the chances of a 911 FACT sheet. Nil.
]]



just for clarity dude, I have a job, working as a support worker with people who suffer with schizophrenia, the nvq is just a govt created augmentation qualification type thing with an additional thing, called core skills, which requires me to demonstrate various obvious skills, I have been using my whole life

I have decided against 911 and have my reasons

read a lot of stuff but there is this thing called information overload which is a thing of our times and quite frankly 4 minutes info presented followed by a barrage of possible questions that I may not be able to answer,

in my job I am on the spot enough as it, is,

but would like to thank you for all your responses and kindess in assisting me

it will maybe be something, I can do another time, another place when I have more time

Thanks for your input, it was highly informative. I imagine that you're up to at least your third gold star at work, yeah? Just fries to conquer and then the world's your oyster.

Back in the real world, I watched TV yesterday and there were dinosaurs on it! Imagine that. I had no idea that they were still around but I guess you live and learn.

But actually, what I wrote wasn't a lie. You posted that it was suspicious that a report into the run-up to 9/11 and the activities of its perpetrators did not contain information about building collapse - something that was outside its purview. I corrected you. And I'm lying? And "you have TV footage"? So what? What has that got to do with the issue at hand?

I assume you realise you're wrong about the report and are trying to cover up. How ironic.

We are going way, WAY beyond the topic at hand. My original statement which you responded to was that the 9/11 report documented a number of cases where procedures had broken down, one of which being that orders weren't handed down properly. I'm looking at page 43 as I type this that documents how there was considerable confusion among the NEADS commanders over the nature and effect of the shoot down order. Both the mission commander and the senior weapons director testified they didn't pass on the shoot down order to the interceptor pilots because they were unsure how the pilots would (or should) proceed with the directive. My point is that any such "facts sheet" the truthers would provide would consciously avoid including important facts like this in favor of their own "witnesses heard explosions" innuendo and you have not offered anything that shows this is incorrect.

As my agenda is to a truthful review of the events of 9/11 instead of a servile need to be pushing any particular scenario regardless of the facts, I acknowledge I was mistaken and the shoot down order was issued after the Pentagon impact rather than before, but the fact remains that even the shoot down order is a detail the truthers don't want the general public to know. How many times have we heard the truthers claim Cheney issued a stand down order, may I ask?

I agree. There are more than one "truther" school of thought on this issue, but that's all for another thread. No need to rehash it at this time and give idiots any reason to continue with nonsense regarding the issue. It will likely come up again and I wanted to ensure that you had correction formation about it and also correct info regarding Mineta's testimony. His timeline and conclusion were simply wrong and he was very confused... The subject is dropped as of now...

That's false. The pioneer in this arena is Jimd3100 from 911blogger. The authors of "The Eleventh Day" have been jacking 9/11 research from us left and right (Paul Thompson, Erik Larson, Richard Schopmeyer, Kevin Fenton, History Commons) while at the same time sucking up to 9/11 Commission staffer Miles Kara and ridiculing the 9/11 Truth Movement in general. (Jimd3100 disagrees with me on this, he doesn't care who steals his work and doesn't credit him as long as its publicized)

They could have mentioned their book is wholly based upon work done by the 9/11 Truth Movement, just a section of the 9/11 Truth Movement they and you don't want to acknowledge exists; everybody likes to focus on the large contingent of ill-informed kooks instead, as if they carry the same weight and have the same stature.

And contrary to what Reheat says, the Mineta timeline hasn't been resolved at all, see people don't know there is a Situation Room as well as PEOC under the White House. Moreover, Douglas Cochrane (Did you know his name?) doesn't want to talk.

I wasn't referring to Jimd3100. I was actually referring to David Ray Griffin. In his book "The 9/11 commission report: Ommissions and distortions" he specifically takes the Mineta testimony out of context to drop innuendo that no interceptors were actually scrambled. Here is, in his own words, Griffin's attempt to explain why the interception is all a lie. You can specifically see how he molds his evidence to suit his argument.

David Ray Griffin discusses his "Ommissions and Distortions" book

Jesse Ventura and his "Conspiracy" television series likewise repeated this claim, where he specifically said during the episode documenting the 9/11 conspiracy that "no interceptors were scrambled" although he only repeats what someone told him by word of mouth and then treats it as a plausible statement. You would think that Ventura was simply a television personality putting out any nonsense that generated advertisement revenues, but he's since joined Dr Judy Wood's "Lasers from outer space" camp so he's a bona fide conspiracy mongor now.

I don't know if this Jimd3100 was the one who originally invented the claim, but then that really isn't important. That whole claim that a cruise missile hit the Pentagon was invented by a French guy by the name of Thierry Meyssan to sell a bunch of books, but you can see how often the preposterous claim is being repeated right here on ATS.

So when a "fact sheet" contains the outrageous claims by one or more of these characters, you can understand why I take umbrage.

no, but here is a short summary,
several federal agents gathered in building 7 in an attempt to spread suppressed technology as fast and precisely as they could. Then there that morning threatened the peoples of space... minutes later pilot cockpits underwent hypnosis from undetermined source. The claim that they were in the trade centers was merely a distraction. when the plane hit, they knew they were out matched as far as control of the telecommunications network was concerned. So they burnt that bitch to the ground, then plan b. then the pentagon sent a missile into the accounting office in the pentagon, I ordered that, the agents then apologized and promised to listen to the overlords and the fourth plane was no longer use full, so the overlords crashed it. 9 11.
then, plan B. West.
