The former head of the Star Wars missile defense program under Presidents Ford and Carter has gone public to say that the official version of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory and his main suspect for the architect of the attack is Vice President Dick Cheney.
Bowman outlined how the drills on the morning of 9/11 that simulated planes crashing into buildings on the east coast were used as a cover to dupe unwitting air defense personnel into not responding quickly enough to stop the attack.
And there will never be an impartial investigation into 9/11. The main players are still alive aren't they?

I personally wonder who he is trying to appeal to on this one? Doing what hes doing could really blow his career.

Could we use "un-elected" officials? Fire commissioners, police commissioners, building inspectors....people like that?

As much as I would want a real 'new investigation' I had to stop reading this post once I saw the link was from prisonplanet.
The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) was a proposal by U.S. President Ronald Reagan on March 23, 1983 to use ground and space-based systems to protect the United States from attack by strategic nuclear ballistic missiles. The initiative focused on strategic defense rather than the prior strategic offense doctrine of mutual assured destruction (MAD).

Star Wars from the Ford and Carter administrations? My best recollection tells me that the Star Wars program, i.e., the missle defense system, got its start during the Reagan administration. Did either Ford or Carter have such a thing? I remember Reagan always going on about it like it was his idea. Putting it in the Ford administration makes it about 10 years too early.
Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam. He is the recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, the President’s Medal of Veterans for Peace, the Society of Military Engineers Gold Medal (twice), six Air Medals, and dozens of other awards and honors. His Ph.D. is in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech. He chaired 8 major international conferences, and is one of the country’s foremost experts on National Security. Bowman worked secretly for the US government on the Star Wars project and was the first to coin the very term in a 1977 secret memo. After Bowman realized that the program was only ever intended to be used as an aggressive and not defensive tool, as part of a plan to initiate a nuclear war with the Soviets, he left the program and campaigned against it.
