Shared With One And All

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that youve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you cant wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid its like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didnt exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long days work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, theres no need for continuous conversation, but you find youre quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that theres a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure thats so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
The End.

9/11 Facts Timeline

9/11 Facts Timeline
9/11 was one of the most pivotal events in world history. Its impact will be felt for years to come. You owe it to yourself to go beyond the sound bites and the simplified official story. This is an extremely complicated story with numerous players and motives. The 9/11 timeline facts don't all make sense or fit neatly together. It's a story full of espionage, deceit, and lies. But if there are forces out there tricking us, they can only succeed if we, the general public, remain ignorant and passive. We are limiting our sources on this 9/11 timeline summary to those one might call "mainstream." It's not that one can only trust the mainstream media. In fact, much of the best reporting today is coming from alternative media. But many people are initially very skeptical. Some of the 9/11 timeline facts below may seem very hard to believe. Yet remember that each entry below is reported by respected major media sources and can easily be verified by clicking on the links provided to the original source. After seeing the importance of what's being hidden from us, you will very likely want to join in working together to build a brighter future. 1980s: Osama bin Laden runs a front organization for the mujaheddinIslamic freedom fighters rebelling against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The CIA secretly backs the mujaheddin. Pakistan's Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, understanding the ferocity of Islamic extremism, tells then President George Bush, "You are creating a Frankenstein." [MSNBC, 8/24/98, Newsweek, 10/1/01, more] 1994: Two attacks take place which involve hijacking planes to crash them into buildings, including one by an Islamic militant group. In a third attack, a lone pilot crashes a plane at the White House. Yet after Sept. 11, over and over aviation and security officials say they are shocked that terrorists could have hijacked airliners and crashed them into landmark buildings. [New York Times, 10/3/01] 1996: The Saudi Arabian government is financially supporting Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda and other extremist groups. After 9/11, the Bush Administration chooses not to confront the Saudi leadership over its support of terror organizations and its refusal to help in the investigation. [New Yorker, 10/22/01, more] 1996-1999: The CIA officer in charge of operations against Al Qaeda from Washington writes, "I speak with firsthand experience (and for several score of CIA officers) when I state categorically that during this time senior White House officials repeatedly refused to act on sound intelligence that provided multiple chances to eliminate Osama bin Laden." [Los Angeles Times, 12/5/04] 1996-2001: Federal authorities have known for years that suspected terrorists with ties to bin Laden were receiving flight training at schools in the US and abroad. One convicted terrorist confessed that his planned role in a

terror attack was to crash a plane into CIA headquarters. [Washington Post, 9/23/01, more] 1996-Sept 11, 2001: Taliban envoys repeatedly discuss turning bin Laden over, but the US wants to be handed bin Laden directly, and the Taliban want to turn him over to some third country. About 20 more meetings on giving up bin Laden take place up till 9/11, all fruitless. [Washington Post, 10/29/01] 1997: Former National Security Advisor Brzezinski publishes a book portraying Eurasia as the key to world power, and Central Asia with its vast oil reserves as the key to domination of Eurasia. He states that for the US to maintain its global primacy, it must prevent any adversary from controlling that region. He notes that because of popular resistance to US military expansionism, his ambitious strategy can't be implemented "except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat." [The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives] 1998: An Oklahoma City FBI agent sends a memo warning that "large numbers of Middle Eastern males" are getting flight training and could be planning terrorist attacks. [CBS, 5/30/02] A separate CIA intelligence report asserts that Arab terrorists are planning to fly a bomb-laden aircraft into the WTC (World Trade Center). [New York Times, 9/19/02, Senate Intelligence Committee, 9/18/02, more] Aug 1998: Within minutes of each other, truck bombs blow up the US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, killing more than 220. For some of the time that bin Laden's men were plotting to blow up the two embassies, US intelligence was tapping their phones.

[Newsweek, 10/1/01] Dec 1998: A Time magazine cover story entitled "The Hunt for Osama," reports that bin Laden may be planning his boldest move yet - a strike on Washington or possibly New York City. [Time, 12/21/98] Late 1998-Early 2000: On at least three occasions, spies in Afghanistan report bin Laden's location. Each time, the president approves an attack. Each time, the CIA Director says the information is not reliable enough and the attack cannot go forward. [New York Times, 12/30/01, more] Sept 1999: A US intelligence report states bin Laden and Al-Qaeda terrorists could crash an aircraft into the Pentagon. The Bush administration claims not to have heard of this report until May 2002, though it was widely shared within the government. [CNN, 5/18/02, AP, 5/18/02, Guardian, 5/19/02] Nov 1999: The head of Australia's security services admits the Echelon global surveillance system exists. The US still denies it exists. BBC describes Echelon's power as "astounding." Every international telephone call, fax, e-mail, or radio transmission can be listened to by powerful computers capable of voice recognition. They home in on key words, or patterns of messages. [BBC, 11/3/99] Jan 2000: George Bush Sr. meets with the bin Laden family on behalf of the Carlyle Group. He also met with them in 1998. Bush's chief of staff could not remember that this meeting took place until shown a thank you note confirming the meeting. [Wall Street Journal, 9/27/01, Guardian, 10/31/01] Continued on Page 4

9/11 Facts Timeline
Continued from Page 3
Summer 2000: A secret military operation named Able Danger identifies four future 9/11 hijackers, including lead hijacker Mohamed Atta, as a potential threat and members of Al Qaeda. Yet none of this is mentioned later in the 9/11 Commissions' final report. When questioned, the 9/11 commission's chief spokesman initially says that staff members briefed about Able Danger did not remember hearing anything about Atta. Days later, however, after provided detailed information, he says the uniformed officer who briefed two staff members had indeed mentioned Atta. [New York Times, 8/11/05, more] Sept 2000: The think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC) writes the blueprint for a global "Pax Americana." Written for the Bush team before the 2000 election, Rebuilding America's Defenses is a plan for maintaining global US preeminence and shaping the international security order in line with American principles and interests. The plan shows Bush intends to take control of the Persian Gulf whether or not Saddam Hussein is in power. It advocates the transformation of the US military. But, "the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbour". [BBC, 2/14/07, Sunday Herald, 9/7/02, read report, more] 2000 - 2001: The military conducts exercises simulating what the White House later says is unimaginable: hijacked airliners used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties. One imagined target is the WTC. [USA Today, 4/19/04] Another is the Pentagon. [Military District of Washington (Army), 11/3/00] Jan 2001: A flight school alerts the FAA. Hijacker Hani Hanjour lacks English and flying skills needed for his commercial pilot's license. An FAA official then sits next to him in class. The official offers a translator to help him pass, but the flight school says this is against the rules. [AP, 5/10/02] Yet despite poor flying skills, official reports later state Hanjour executes a 330 to 360 degree turn of AA Flight 77 over Washington on 9/11 in under four minutes and manages a precision hit on the Pentagon. [NY Times, 10/16/01, NTSB, 2/19/02] Jan 2001: After the elections, US intelligence agencies are told to "back off" investigating the bin Ladens and Saudi royals. There have always been constraints on investigating Saudis. [BBC, 11/6/01, more] Spring 2001: Military and government documents are released that seek to legitimize the use of US military force in the pursuit of oil. One article advocates presidential subterfuge in the promotion of conflict and "explicitly urge[s] painting over the US's actual reasons for warfare as a necessity for mobilizing public

support for a conflict." [Sydney Morning Herald, 12/26/02, more] May 2001: US security chiefs reject Sudan's offer to turn over voluminous files about bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Sudan has made this offer repeatedly since 1995. [Guardian, 9/30/01, more] May 2001: Secretary of State Powell gives $43 million in aid to the Taliban government. [Los Angeles Times, 5/22/01, CNN 5/17/01] This follows $113 million given in 2000. [State Dept. Fact Sheet, 12/11/01] May 2001: The US introduces "Visa Express" program allowing any Saudi Arabian to obtain visas through their travel agent instead of appearing at a consulate in person.

[Congressional Intelligence Committee, 9/20/02] May-Aug 2001: A number of the 9/11 hijackers make at least six trips to Las Vegas.

The terrorists plan to use a plane stuffed with explosives. [NY Times, 9/26/01] June 28, 2001: CIA Director George J. Tenet has been "nearly frantic" with concern. A written intelligence summary for national security adviser Condoleezza Rice says: "It is highly likely that a significant al Qaeda attack is in the near future, within several weeks." Rice will later claim that everyone was taken by complete surprise by the 9/11 attack. By late summer, one senior political appointee says, Tenet had repeated this threat "so often that people got tired of hearing it." [Washington Post, 5/17/02] July 4-14, 2001: Bin Laden reportedly receives kidney treatment from Canadiantrained Dr. Callaway at the American Hospital in Dubai. Telephoned several times, the doctor declines to answer questions. During his stay, bin Laden allegedly is visited by one or two CIA officers.

Hidden History
Hidden History

By Rob McConnell
One has to wonder what the true facts are about history and how, if the truth were to be known, what effect it would have on this planet and it's humanoid inhabitants. We know for a fact that Christopher Columbus did not discover the Americas that the Egyptians, Irish and Vikings were in the Americas both exploring and trading. Egyptian artefacts have been discovered in the Grand Canyon and there have been recent archaeological finds that support a theory that the Chinese had made trips across the Pacific to North America before Columbus as well. Archaeologists have found evidence that The Great Flood did really happen and as a result, the changes that were caused by the flood changed our planet and its inhabitants in many ways. We know that prior to The Great Flood the oxygen level was twice as it is today. Humans lived longer, were healthier and skeletal remains reveal that humans were taller, as were other living organisms. This increase in planetary oxygen find was displayed at the Worlds Fair in Japan when scientists grew a tomato plant in an oxygen enriched environment. The results could not be disputed. The tomato plant produced, and remember that we are talking about one tomato plant, 13,000 yes thirteen thousand tomatoes and the plant lived for more than six months. The enriched oxygen would also validate the extremely long life of those spoken about in the pre-flood days in the Bible. Trees have been found in the rich preservative peat bogs that have been measured to be over 1,000 feet! Could the enriched oxygen atmosphere have a direct connection to the size of dinosaurs and other prehistoric plants and animals? According to archaeologist and international explored from New Zealand Dr Jonathan Gray, it most certainly does. Archaeologists around the world know the truth and have for years and their discoveries and findings are blocked and suppressed by members of the scientific community as well as academia who egos and " mightier than thou" serves them well for funding and other personal gains. I for one would like to know the truth despite the ramifications that the truth would have on history, the scientific community, academia or religion. How can we expect the truth in from all members of society when we now know that the very historical basis of our existence and evolution on this planet and what our children are being taught in the hallowed halls of

learning are lies. We also know from archaeological finds that flight, batteries, electromagnet forces and mastered building skills were mastered by the ancients. For more information on suppressed and hidden archaeology please Google Jonathan Gray and Michael Cremo. David Nabham was on The 'X' Zone Radio Show this week and using present and historical lunar/tidal charts has developed an Earthquake Predictions System that would allow members of government and the media to let members of the public know of dates of high earthquake occurrences allow the public as well as officials the lead time necessary to prepare for the probable events for those dates. As of yet there has been not been any interest from any government or official agency. There would be no cost whatsoever for this information which, if correct, and according to independent analysis of the data supplied by David Nabhan, it is, this information and data will save lives and the financial costs incurred by unexpected disasters. For more information on David Nabhan or Jonathon Gray you can listen to their

interviews on The 'X' Zone Radio Show at Yes, the truth is indeed stranger than fiction. Oh, and by the way, there has never been an archaeological find that proves the existence of extraterrestrial visitations. For The 'X' Zone Radio & TV Show and The 'X' Chronicles Newspaper, I am Rob McConnell.[]

It is so terrifying to hear about missing children. The emotional stress must be unbearable for the children, parents and families. With a little bit of help maybe one more child can be found.

[Fox News, 5/17/02] Aug 6, 2001: President Bush is warned by US intelligence that bin Laden might be planning to hijack commercial airliners. The White House waits eight months after 9/11 to reveal this fact. [New York Times, 5/16/02] Titled "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US," the intelligence briefing specifically mentions the World Trade Center. Yet Bush later states the briefing "said nothing about an attack on America." [CNN, 4/12/04, Washington Post, 4/12/04, White House, 4/11/04, CNN, 4/10/04, Intelligence Briefing, 8/6/01, more] Aug 22, 2001: Top counter-terrorism expert John O'Neill quits the FBI due to repeated obstruction of his al-Qaeda investigations and a power play against him. He was the government's "most committed tracker of bin Laden and al-Qaeda." The next day he starts a new job as head of security at the WTC. He is killed weeks later in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attack. [New Yorker, 1/14/02] Aug 24, 2001: Frustrated with lack of response from FBI headquarters about detained suspect Moussaoui, the Minnesota FBI begins working with the CIA. The CIA sends alerts calling him a "suspect 747 airline suicide hijacker." Three days later an FBI Minnesota supervisor says he is trying to make sure that Moussaoui does not "take control of a plane and fly it into the World Trade Center." [Senate Intelligence Committee, 10/17/02] FBI headquarters chastises Minnesota FBI for notifying the CIA. [Time, 5/21/02] FBI Director Mueller will later say "there was nothing the agency could have done to anticipate and prevent the [9/11] attacks." [Senate Intelligence Committee, 9/18/02, more] Sept 10, 2001: A particularly urgent warning may have been received the night before the attacks, causing some top Pentagon brass to cancel a trip.

[Newsweek, 9/13/01] "A group of top Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns." [Newsweek, 9/24/01, more] Sept 10, 2001: Former president Bush is with a brother of Osama bin Laden at a Carlyle business conference. The conference is interrupted the next day by the attacks.

Continued from Page 6
Sept 10, 2001: Defense Secretary Rumsfeld announces that by some estimates the Department of Defense "cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." CBS later calculates that 25% of the yearly defense budget is unaccounted for. A defense analyst says, "The books are cooked routinely year after year." [DOD, 9/10/01, CBS, 1/29/02] This announcement was buried by the next day's news of 9/11. Sept 11, 2001: Warren Buffett, the second richest man on Earth [BBC, 6/22/01], schedules a charity event inside Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. A small group of business leaders attend, including at least one who would otherwise have died in the WTC. [SF Business Times, 2/1/02, Forbes 10/15/01] Bush flies to this same base that day, where there is an underground command center. [CNN, 9/12/01, CBS, 9/11/02] Sept 11, 2001: Recovery experts extract data from 32 WTC computer drives revealing a surge in financial transactions. Illegal transfers of over $100 million may have been made through some WTC computer systems immediately before and during the disaster. [Reuters, 12/18/01, CNN, 12/20/01, more] Sept 11, 2001: In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, a US intelligence agency (the National Reconnaissance Office or NRO) was all set for an exercise at 9 AM on September 11th in which an aircraft would crash into one of its buildings near Washington, DC. [AP, 8/22/02] Four wargames were also in progress at the time of the attacks. [C-SPAN Congressional Testimony, 3/11/05, more] Sept 11, 2001: The entire continental United States is defended by only seven air bases and 14 military jets. [CNN, 9/9/03, Newsday, 9/23/01]

a series of military planes provided an emergency escort to Payne's stricken Lear about 20 minutes after ground controllers lost contact with his plane.[Dallas Morning News, 10/26/99, more] 8:20 AM (approx.): Air traffic controllers suspect Flight 11 has been hijacked. [NY Times, 9/15/01, more] 8:40 AM: NORAD is notified of hijacking. [NY Times, 10/16/01, 8:38 AM Washington Post, 9/15/01] 8:46 AM: Flight 11 crashes into the WTC (World Trade Center) north tower. [approximately 26 minutes after controllers lost contact][New York Times, 9/12/01] 8:46 AM: President Bush later states, "I was sitting outside the classroom and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was on." [CNN, 12/4/01] "When we walked into the classroom, I had seen this plane fly into the first building." [White House, 1/5/02] There was no live coverage of the first crash on TV and President Bush was in a classroom reading with children at the time of the second crash. How could he forget this? 8:52 AM: Two F-15s take off from Otis Air Force Base. [Washington Post, 9/15/01] They go after Flight 175. Major General Paul Weaver, director of the Air National Guard, states "the pilots flew like a scalded ape, topping 500 mph but were unable to catch up to the airliner. We had a nine-minute window, and in excess of 100 miles to intercept 175,'' he said. ''There was just literally no way.'' [Dallas Morning News, 9/15/01] F-15's fly at up to 2.5 times the speed of sound [1875 mph or 30+ miles a minute or 270+ miles in nine minutes] and are designed for low-altitude, high-speed, precision attacks. [BBC] 8:56 AM: By this time, it is evident that Flight 77 is lost. The FAA, already in contact with the Pentagon about the two hijackings out of Boston, reportedly doesn't notify NORAD of this until 9:24, 28 minutes later. [see 9:10 AM for comparison, New York Times, 10/16/01]

[Washington Post, 9/15/01] 9:24 AM [? - see above]: The FAA, who 28 minutes earlier had discovered Flight 77 off course and heading east over West Virginia, reportedly notifies NORAD. A Pentagon spokesman says, "The Pentagon was simply not aware that this aircraft was coming our way." [Newsday, 9/23/01, New York Times, 10/16/01] Yet since the first crash, military officials in a Pentagon command center were urgently talking to law enforcement and air traffic control officials about what to do. [New York Times, 9/15/01] 9:28 AM: Air traffic control learns that Flight 93 has been hijacked. [MSNBC, 7/30/02] 9:38 AM: Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon.

September 11, 2001 Timeline for the Day of the Attacks

Department of Defense (6/1/01) and FAA (7/12/01) procedure: In the event of a hijacking, the FAA hijack coordinator on duty at Washington headquarters requests the military to provide escort aircraft. Normally, NORAD escort aircraft take the required action. The FAA notifies the National Military Command Center by the most expeditious means. [DOD/, 6/1/01, FAA, 7/12/01, FAA 7/12/01] If NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) hears of any difficulties in the skies, they begin the work to scramble jet fighters [take off and intercept aircraft that are off course]. Between Sep 2000 and June 2001 fighters were scrambled 67 times. [AP, 8/12/02] When the Lear jet of golfer Payne Stewart didn't respond in 1999, F-16 interceptors were quickly dispatched. According to an Air Force timeline,

5:20 PM: Building 7 of the World Trade Center collapses. [CNN, 9/12/01] Though the media claims fires brought the building down, the building's owner Larry Silverstein later recounts the story of the collapse of this 47-story skyscraper in a PBS documentary America Rebuilds, "I remember getting a call from the fire department commander. ... I said ... maybe the smartest thing to do is to pull it. And they made that decision to pull, and then we watched the building collapse." [PBS Documentary, more] Sept 11, 2001: Did the Air Force send up planes after the hijacked aircraft? The Air Force won't say. It says they keep about 20 F-15 and F-16 fighters on duty with Air National Guards along the nation's coastline, ready to inspect unknown aircraft entering U.S. airspace. "We can scramble and be airborne in a matter of minutes," said an Air Force spokesperson. Some airline pilots are wondering whether the FAA did enough to try to prevent the crashes. [Wall Street Journal, 09/14/01] Sept 11, 2001: Six air traffic controllers who dealt with two of the hijacked airliners make a tape recording describing the events, but the tape is later destroyed by a supervisor without anyone making a transcript or even listening to it. [Washington Post, 5/6/04, New York Times, 5/6/04] Sept 11, 2001: Hours after the attacks, a "shadow government" is formed. Key congressional leaders say they didn't know President Bush had established this government-in-waiting. Some Congressmen state the administration should have conferred about its plans. [CBS, 3/2/02, Washington Post, 3/2/02, more] Sept 11, 2001: A National Public Radio correspondent states: "I spoke with Congressman Ike Skelton who said that just recently the director of the CIA warned that there could be an attack - an imminent attack on the United States of this nature. So this is not entirely unexpected." [NPR, 9/11/01] Sept 12, 2001: Senator Orrin Hatch says the US was monitoring bin Laden supporters and overheard them discussing the attack. [AP, 9/12/01] Why has the media not explored the fact that the US could monitor private communications of al-Qaeda on 9/11? Sept 13-19, 2001: Members of bin Laden's family are driven or flown under FBI supervision to a secret assembly point in Texas and then to Washington, where they leave the country on a private plane when most flights were still grounded. Top White House officials personally approve these evacuations. [New York Times, 9/4/03, Boston Globe, 9/20/01, New York Times, 9/30/01, more] Sept 14, 2001: The two black boxes for Flight 77 are found. [PBS, 9/14/01] FBI Director Robert Mueller later says Flight 77's data

recorder provides altitude, speed, headings and other information, but the voice recorder contains "nothing useful." [CBS, 2/23/02] Yet they refuse to release the recordings. Sept 15-16, 2001: U.S. military sources give the FBI information that several of the 9/11 hijackers, including leader Mohamed Atta, may have received training at U.S. military installations. Three hijackers listed their address on drivers licenses and car registrations as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla. Atta graduated from the US International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. The media drops the story after the Air Force issues a statement saying that while the names are similar, "we are probably not talking about the same people." [Newsweek, 9/15/01, Washington Post, 9/16/01, Los Angeles Times, 9/15/01, more] Yet the military provides no detailed information to refute the claims in these articles. Sept 19, 2001: The FBI claims that there may have been six hijacking teams on the morning of 9/11. [New York Times, 9/19/01] Authorities have identified teams that total as many as 50 infiltrators who supported or carried out the strikes. About 40 of the men have been accounted for. [Los Angeles Times, 9/13/01] Yet only one person, Moussaoui, is later charged. Sept 20-23, 2001: "Five of the alleged hijackers have emerged, alive, innocent and astonished to see their names and photographs appearing on satellite television. ... The hijackers were using stolen identities, and investigators are studying the possibility that the entire suicide squad consisted of impostors." [quote from London Times, 9/20/01, see also BBC]. Yet these same individuals are later officially established as the 9/11 hijackers in the 2004 9/11 Commission Report. For more on this, click here. Oct 2, 2001: The Patriot Act is introduced in Congress. The next day, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D) accuses the Bush administration of reneging on an agreement on this anti-terrorist bill. [Washington Post, 10/4/01] Anthrax letters are

sent to Leahy and Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D) on October 9. [CNN, 11/18/01] Oct 10-11, 2001: After consulting with the FBI and CDC, Iowa State University in Ames destroys anthrax spores collected over seven decades. On Oct 25, the White House homeland security director confirms publicly the anthrax letters sent to Leahy and others contained the Ames strain. [New York Times, 11/9/01] Continued on Page 9

Nov 12, 2001Mar 25, 2002: 13 renowned microbiologists mysteriously die over the span of less than five months. All but one are killed or murdered under unusual circumstances. Some are world leaders in developing weaponsgrade biological plagues. Others are the best in figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others are experts in the theory of bioterrorism. [Globe and Mail, 5/4/02] Nov 12: Benito Que, 52, an expert in infectious diseaseskilled in carjacking, later deemed possible stroke. [Globe and Mail, 5/4/02] Nov. 16: Don Wiley, 57, one of the world's leading researchers of deadly virusesbody found in Mississippi River.

[New York Times, 11/23/01] Dec 10: Dr. Robert Schwartz, 57, a leading researcher on DNA sequencing analysisslain at home. [Washington Post, 12/12/01] Dec 14: Nguyen Van Set, 44, his research organization had just come to fame for discovering a virus which can be modified to affect smallpoxdies in an airlock in his lab. [Sydney Morning Herald, 12/12/01] Jan 2002: Ivan Glebov (bandit attack) and Alexi Brushlinski (killed in Moscow), both worldrenowned members of the Russian Academy of Science. [Pravda, 2/9/02] Feb 9: Victor Korshunov, 56, head of the microbiology subfaculty at the Russian State Medical Universitykilled by cranial injury. [Pravda, 2/9/02] Feb 11: Ian Langford, 40, one of Europe's leading experts on environmental riskmurdered in home. [London Times, 2/13/02] Feb 28 (2): Tanya Holzmayer, 46, helped create drugs that interfere with replication of the virus that causes AIDS, and Guyang Huang, 38, a brilliant scholar highly regarded in geneticsmurder/suicide. [San Jose Mercury News, 2/28/02] Mar 24: David Wynn-Williams, 55, an astrobiologist with NASA Ames Research Centerkilled while jogging. [London Times, 3/27/02] Mar 25: Steven Mostow, 63, an expert on the threat of bioterrorismprivate plane crash. [KUSA TV/NBC, 3/26/02] Dec 2001: The US engineers the rise to power of a former Unocal Oil employee, Hamid Karzai, as the interim president of Afghanistan. Looking at the map of the big US bases in Afghanistan, one is struck that they are identical to the route of the projected oil pipeline. [Chicago Tribune, 3/18/02, more] Dec 25, 2001: Leading structural engineers and fire-safety experts believe the investigation into the collapse of the WTC is "inadequate." They note that the current team of 20 or so investigators has inadequate financial and staff support, has been prevented from interviewing witnesses and from examining the disaster site. They couldn't even get detailed blueprints of the World Trade Center. The decision to rapidly recycle the steel beams from the WTC means definitive answers may never be known. [New York Times, 12/25/01]

Jan 1, 2002: Zalamy Khalilzad is appointed by Bush as special envoy to Afghanistan. [BBC, 1/1/02, Chicago Tribune, 3/18/02] Khalilzad once lobbied for the Taliban and worked for an American oil company that sought concessions for pipelines in Afghanistan. [Independent, 1/10/02] Jan 4, 2002: An editorial in the respected trade magazine Fire Engineering states that there is good reason to believe that the "official investigation," blessed by FEMA, into the WTC collapse is a "half-baked farce" that may already have been commandeered by political forces whose primary interests are clearly not full disclosure. "Respected members of the fire protection engineering community are beginning to raise red flags, and a resonating theory has emerged: The structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers." [Fire Engineering, 1/02] Jan 24, 2002: Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle claims that on this day Cheney calls him and urges that no 9/11 inquiry be made. He is repeatedly pressured thereafter. [CNN, 1/29/02, Newsweek, 2/4/02, more] Feb 6, 2002: CIA Director Tenet tells a Senate hearing that there was no 9/11 intelligence failure. When asked about the CIA on 9/11, he states that the 9/11 plot was "in the heads of three or four people." He rejects any suggestion that the CIA failed to do its job. [USA Today, 2/7/02] Feb 21, 2002: A ban on poppy growing by the Taliban in July 2000 along with severe droughts reduced Afghanistan's opium yield by 91% in 2001. Yet the UN expects its 2002 opium crop to be equivalent to the bumper one of three years ago. Afghanistan is the source of 75% of the world's heroin. [Guardian, 2/21/02] Why is the US unable to control opium production which had almost stopped? Mar 2, 2002: The 9/11 collapse of the 47-story WTC building 7 was the first time a modern, steel-reinforced high-rise in the US has ever collapsed in a fire. [New York Times, 3/2/02]

Building 7 was where the SEC was storing files related to numerous Wall Street investigations. The files for approximately 3,000 to 4,000 cases were destroyed. [National Law Journal, 9/17/01] Lost files include documents that could show the relationship between Citigroup and the WorldCom bankruptcy. [The Street, 8/9/02, more] Mar 13, 2002: Bush says of bin Laden: "I truly am not that concerned about him." [White House, 3/13/02] Military chief Myers states: "the goal has never been to get bin Laden." [CNN/DOD, 4/6/02] Apr 19, 2002: FBI Director Mueller: "We have not uncovered a single piece of paper that mentioned any aspect of the 9/11 plot. The hijackers had no computers, no laptops, no storage media of any kind." [FBI, 4/19/02, Los Angeles Times, 4/30/02] Yet investigators have amassed a ''substantial'' amount of e-mail traffic among the hijackers. [USA Today, 10/1/01] The laptop computer of Moussaoui, the alleged 20th hijacker, was confiscated weeks before 9/11, yet FBI headquarters systematically dismissed and undermined requests by Minneapolis FBI agents to search the computer. [Time, 5/21/02, CNN, 5/27/02] May 15, 2002: For the first time, the White House admits that Bush was warned about bin Laden hijacking aircraft and wanting to attack the US in Aug 2001. It is unclear why they waited eight months to reveal this. The Press Secretary states that while Bush had been warned of possible hijackings, "the president did not receive information about the use of airplanes as missiles by suicide bombers." Yet the August presidential memo left little doubt that the hijacked airliners were intended for use as missiles and that US targets were intended.

May 17, 2002: Dan Rather says that he and other journalists haven't been properly investigating since 9/11. He graphically describes the pressures to conform after the attacks. [Guardian, 5/17/02, more] May 21, 2002: A memo is released in which Minnesota FBI agent Coleen Rowley writes to FBI Director Mueller, "I have deep concerns that a delicate and subtle shading/skewing of facts by you and others at the highest levels of FBI management has occurred and is occurring." [Time, 5/21/02] CNN calls the memo a "colossal indictment of our chief lawenforcement agency." [CNN, 5/27/02] Time magazine later names Rowley one of three "Persons of the Year" for 2002. [Time, 12/22/02] May 23, 2002: President Bush says he is opposed to establishing a special, independent commission to probe how the government dealt with terror warnings before 9/11. [CBS, 5/23/02] May 30, 2002: FBI Agent Robert Wright formally accuses the FBI of deliberately curtailing investigations that might have prevented 9/11. He is under threat of retribution if he talks to members of Congress about what he knows. [Fox News/Reuters, 5/30/02, more] He also accuses the agency of shutting down his 1998 criminal probe into alleged terroristtraining camps in Chicago and Kansas City. Wright has written a book, but the agency won't let him publish it or even give it to anyone. [LA Weekly, 8/2/02] July 23, 2002: The New York City government decides that many of the audio and written records of the Fire Department's actions on 9/11 should never be released. The New York Times had filed a lawsuit seeking numerous records concerning the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, including firsthand accounts by scores of firefighters and chiefs. [New York Times, 7/23/02] Sept 11, 2002: On the first anniversary of 9/11, New York Times writes, "One year later, the public knows less about the circumstances of 2,801 deaths at the foot of Manhattan in broad daylight than people in 1912 knew within weeks about the Titanic." The former police commissioner of Philadelphia says: "You can hardly point to a cataclysmic event in our history when a blue-ribbon panel did not set out to establish the facts and suggest reforms. That has not happened here." [New York Times, 9/11/02] Oct 5, 2002: Congressional investigators say the FBI's efforts to block their inquiry makes them skeptical of FBI assertions. They also say the Justice Department has joined the FBI in fighting congressional requests for information, while the CIA has been antagonistic. [New York Times, 10/5/02] Oct 16, 2002: The CIA, FBI, and NSA all testify

that no individual at their agencies has been punished or fired for any of the missteps surrounding the Sept. 11 attacks. [Washington Post, 10/18/02] Oct 21, 2002: No more than six of the 19 hijackers were interviewed by US officials before being granted visas. This contradicts the State Department's claim that 12 had been interviewed. Of 15 hijackers, none filled in the visa documents properly. All 15 of them should have been denied entry to the country. "The system was rigged in their favor from the getgo." [Washington Post, 10/22/02, ABC News, 10/23/02] In December 2002, two top Republican senators report that if State Department personnel had merely followed the law in Saudi Arabia, 9/11 would not have happened. [AP, 12/18/02, more] Oct 27, 2002: A report from Defense Secretary Rumsfeld's Defense Science Board recommends the creation of a super-intelligence body (P2OG) which would launch secret operations to "stimulate reactions" among terrorists and states owning weapons of mass destruction. It would prod terrorist cells into action, thus exposing them to quick-response attacks by US forces. [Los Angeles Times, 10/27/02, more] Oct 29, 2002: Of over 800 people rounded up since 9/11, only 10 have been linked to the hijackings and probably will turn out to be innocent. [Newsweek, 10/29/02] Though many were held for months, the vast majority were never charged with anything other than overstaying a visa. [New York Times, 7/11/02] Nov 27, 2002: Bush names Henry Kissinger to lead an independent investigation into the 9/11 terrorist attacks. [New York Times, 11/28/02] He is a highly controversial figure. Documents released by the CIA strengthen suspicions that Kissinger was actively involved in a covert plan to assassinate thousands of political opponents in six Latin American countries. He is also famous for his obsession with secrecy. [BBC, 4/26/02] "Indeed, it is tempting to wonder if the

choice of Mr. Kissinger is not a clever maneuver by the White House to contain an investigation it long opposed." [New York Times, 11/29/02] Dec 13, 2002: Kissinger resigns as chairman of the new 9/11 investigation citing controversy over potential conflicts of interest with his business clients. [CNN, 12/13/02, BBC, 12/14/02] Dec 16, 2002: Bush replaces Kissinger with Thomas Kean as chairman. Kean promises a thorough investigation. [AP, 12/17/02] He will devote one day a week to the commission. [Washington Post, 12/17/02] Jan 13, 2003: The worldwide turmoil caused by US government policies goes not exactly unreported, but entirely de-emphasized. Guardian writers are inundated by e-mails from Americans asking why their own papers never print what is in UK papers. If there is a Watergate scandal lurking in this administration, it is unlikely to be [Washington Post's Bob] Woodward or his colleagues who will tell us about it. If it emerges, it will probably come out on the web. "That is a devastating indictment of the state of American newspapers." [Guardian, 1/13/03] March 26, 2003: Though the investigation into the space shuttle Columbia tragedy cost $50 million and the Ken Starr investigation of Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky ran $64 million, the White House balks at increasing funding beyond $3 million for the 9/11 Commission's investigation into the worst terror attack ever. The latest effort to curtail funding has angered victims of the attacks. "The White House decision was another in a long line of efforts to water down or shrink the panel's role."

July 22, 2004: The 9/11 Commission Report is published. It fails to mention that a year before the attacks a secret Pentagon project named Able Danger had identified four 9/11 hijackers, including leader Mohamed Atta. The Commission spokesperson initially states members were not informed of this, but later acknowledges they were. [New York Times, 8/11/05, more] Nov 19, 2004: The fear that Afghanistan might degenerate into a narco-state is becoming a reality. Afghanistan has surpassed Colombia as the world's biggest gross producer of illicit narcotics, heroin being the "main engine of economic growth" and the "strongest bond" among tribes that previously fought constantly. What we have here now is a narco-economy where 40 to 50 percent of the GDP is from illicit drugs. [San Francisco Chronicle, 11/19/04] How does a country controlled by the US become the largest producer of illegal drugs? For a possible answer, click here. Nov 17, 2005: Former FBI Director Louis Freeh: "The Able Danger intelligence, if confirmed, is undoubtedly the most relevant fact of the entire post-9/11 inquiry. Yet the 9/11 Commission inexplicably concluded that it 'was not historically significant.' This astounding conclusionin combination with the failure to investigate Able Danger and incorporate it into its findingsraises serious challenges to the commission's credibility and, if the facts prove out, might just render the commission historically insignificant itself." [Wall Street Journal, 11/17/05] 2004 - 2005: A growing number of top government officials and public leaders express disbelief in the official story of 9/11. Some even believe 9/11 may have been an inside job. 100 prominent leaders and forty 9/11 family members sign a statement calling for an unbiased inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the attacks to occur. [Various Publications] August 9, 2006: A shocking new book by the 9/11 Commission co-chairmen Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton says we still don't know the whole truth about 9/11. The book outlines repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and the FAA. Untruethe military's original timeline of United Flight 93. Equally untrue, the government's timeline for American Flight 77 and details about fighter jets scrambled to intercept it. CNN News anchor Lou Dobbs: "The fact that the government would permit deception...and perpetuate the lie suggests that we need a full investigation of what is going on." [CNN, 8/9/06 , MSNBC/AP, 8/4/06, more] 2006-2009: Over 50 senior government officials from the military, intelligence, Cabinet and Congress, and over 100 highly respected professors, including engineers, physicists, architects, philosophers and theologians publicly criticize The 9/11 Commission Report

as flawed, and call for a new, independent investigation. Some even claim rogue elements of government were involved in the attacks. [Professors, Officials]

UNCLE AL CAPONE: The Untold Story from inside His Family
Gangster Al Capone once commented that This American system of oursgives each and every one of us a great opportunity if we only seize it with both hands and make the most of it. Despite the fact that its coming from a known gangster, it says a great deal about the mind of the man. He sees himself as an average, successful American businessman, even if his comment understates the whole picture. Its this human quality that Deirdre Marie Capone evokes in Uncle Al Capone, a fascinating book thats one part biography, one part memoir, and one part remembrance of Public Enemy Number One. As the grand-niece of Al, Capone recounts how she hid her family name for years. When a school research project leads her to come clean to her kids, she begins recalling the rich family history she once knew. Its a tale that starts after the family emigrates from Angri, Italy to Brooklyn, New York. Capone shows that Al and her grandfather, Ralph, werent always members of a crime syndicate. In fact, their childhood is fairly normal, with Al finishing high school, and Ralph working odd jobs to help support the family. Everything changes when their father dies and Prohibition becomes law. Forced to earn a living for his family, Al, and eventually Ralph, head to Chicago and down the path to criminal celebrity. Throughout the book, Capone tries to reconcile what she knows about her family with recorded history. Early in the book she writes, I will not pretend to be able to paint a rosy picture of my uncle Al. I cannot make him out to be a perfect man, or even a good man. But what I want people to know is that he was a complex man. He was human and he had a heart. Capone succeeds, balancing both the public history of Al, from the Valentines Day Massacre to his incarceration at Alcatraz, with personal photos, family recipes, and her own memories. The author recalls how loving certain members of the Capone family were, particularly her greataunt Maffie who helps the author to see good in the men. Its not always an easy task as the author recounts losing friends, jobs, and other opportunities, once people learned she was a descendant of the notorious Al Capone. Overall, Uncle Al Capone is a memoir that is as complex and human as the man that its about. It brings a fresh perspective to the other Al Capone biographies, and finally gives the larger-than-life gangster the one thing that may have eluded him in life: to be seen as simply a human being.

The 11 Most Compelling 9/11 Theories

The 11 Most Compelling 9/11 Conspiracy Theories
by Samuel Aleshinloye, Assoc Editor
Many 9 11 conspiracy theories surfaced shortly after the September 11th attacks, some bringing compelling arguments, and some not holding up at all. Theorists believe that the World Trade Center buildings were demolished by bombs, phone calls from the planes were made up, and the former President George W. Bush secretly profited from the attacks. I have compiled a list of the 11 most compelling 9 11 conspiracy theories that exist: 1. Inside Traders Knew About Attacks Before They Happened Right before the September 11th attacks some fishy business happened within the stock market and insurance firms. An extraordinary amount of put options were placed on United Airlines and American Airlines stocks, the same airlines that were hijacked during the attacks. Many speculate that traders were tipped off about the attacks, and profited from the tragedy. The Securities and Exchange Commission launched an insider trading investigation in which Osama Bin Laden was a suspect after receiving information from at least one Wall Street Firm. 2. Air Defense Was Told To Stand Down In the event that a airplane were to be hijacked, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), is prepared to send out fighter jets which can debilitate or shoot down an airplane. On 9/11/01, NORAD generals said they learned of the hijackings in time to scramble fighter jets. Some skeptics believe NORAD commanded defense systems to Stand-down, because of their lack of presence during the attacks. 3. Planes Didnt Make Twin Towers Collapse, Bombs Did The World Trade Center collapse appeared similar to a controlled demolition. Many speculate that the towers were in fact blown down with explosives placed in selected locations. Some witnesses accounted hearing explosions inside the building as they attempted to escape. Many architects and scientists even maintain that a planes fuel cannot produce enough heat to melt the steel frame of the two buildings that collapsed. 4. The Pentagon Attack Scientifically Doesnt Hold Up The Pentagon crash may be the most puzzling event of the day. Theorists maintain that the impact holes in the pentagon were much smaller then a commercial American Airlines plane. They also question why the plane was not shot down prior to impact, as well as why the plane impacted into a section of the Pentagon that was vacant due to renovations. 5. Flight 93 Was Completely Staged The fourth hijacked plane, Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It is believed that the passengers fought back, and

crashed the plane into a field. Skeptics believe that Flight 93 landed safely, while a substitute plane was shot out of the sky. Other theorists believe that the passengers were murdered or relocated, and will never be found. 6. Hijackers Are Alive. How Did Their Passports Survive Explosion? After the September 11th attacks, the Loose Change documentary stated that all of the hijackers were in fact alive in other countries. Rather presumptuous since it is possible for two different people to have identical names. But they did raise a good point; how did the passports of the terrorists survive the explosion? In the aftermath of the attacks, passports and identification were found as evidence. Many skeptics question how identification made out of paper survived an explosion, which destroyed buildings. 7. Cell Phone Calls Made From Plane Were Faked In flight calls were made from cell phones in hi-jacked airplanes. Scientists and skeptics maintain that cell phones could not receive reception from the altitude the planes typically fly. Other skeptics questioned a phone call from a son to his mother, in which he referred to himself by his own first and last name. 8. Jewish People Knew Attack Was Going To Happen, Took Off Work On September 11th Theorists noticed that 4,000 Jewish employees took off from work on September 11th 2001. Some of the first people to record the attacks on camera were Jewish also. Many became suspicious of there actions, and put them on the radar as suspects in the wake of the attack. 9. Black Boxes Found By Search Crew Kept Secret During the ensuing weeks after the

attacks, the Black boxes were one of the most important items to find. They were the only evidence into what happened inside the cockpits of the plane. 3 of 4 black boxes were found, and only one was in good enough condition to listen to. The tape was not initially released, but was shared with the families in 2002. Skeptics believe the tapes were not disclosed in order to support the secret scheme. 10. The Bin Laden Tapes Are Fake Initially, Osama Bid Laden denied any responsibility or involvement with the attacks. Soon afterwards, numerous tapes came out claiming that he took full responsibility on the attacks. Many skeptics believe that Bin Laden was targeted because of his stakes in the stocks as well as former President George W. Bushs personal business ventures in the Middle East. 11. Aluminum Planes Cant Penetrate Steel Structure Of World Trade Center Commercial airplanes frames are constructed with a very light aluminum material, in order to make it easier to fly. Theorists maintain that there is no possible way an airplane can do as much damage as it did to the Twin Towers as it did. Theorists believe that missiles or explosives were used to ensure the buildings collapsed. 10 years after the attack we may never know the entire story, but will always remember the people who we lost on this tragic day. The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working [] Congratulations to

May 10, Jacksonville, Florida: a pipe bomb explodes while approximately 60 Muslims are praying in the mosque. The attack causes no injuries. Oct. 29: two packages are found on separate cargo planes. Each package contains a bomb consisting of 300 to 400 grams (11-14 oz) of plastic explosives and a detonating mechanism. The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia's security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. 2011 Jan. 17, Spokane, Washington: a pipe bomb is discovered along the route of the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial march. The bomb, a "viable device" set up to spray marchers with shrapnel and to cause multiple casualties, is defused without any injuries. []

What has been done? A hostile crime. We do not understand what is in store, What will come next, war? As President Bush said, "make no mistake about it", We will resolve this, we shall stand united." We pray for the lives of others, Our Friends, Relatives, even Fathers or Mothers. And as the world waits for what is to come, We will go on stronger by what has been done.

The Light Bringer

Chris DiGiuseppi and Mike Force

Across the world, nearly two people die every second of every day. The haunting questions that loom in the minds of the living torment each of us sooner or later at some point in our lives. Can you recall the grief, the confusion, the lack of understanding and perhaps the flood of emotion that consumed you as you stood at the graveside of a loved one or close friend? Staring down into a casket, can you recall the feelings of emptiness and fear, as if you were lost in a dark room searching for a source of light? Do you remember the frustration of yearning for an answer or reason to explain how such an injustice has come to pass? Have you ever heard someone say, everything happens for a reason? Although a fictional story, The Light Bringer incorporates a volume of incidents involving tragedies that are based on real experiences of the authors over the course of their lives. It offers a mixture of reality and fiction to lend some resolve to the pain and frustrations of death. Its engaging tale will walk you through a fantastic display of life and the mysterious worlds beyond the doorway of the afterlife. The book compels the readers inspiration but also motivates one to reflect on the path you choose to take in life and the resulting impact on death. The authors original goal was to change one persons life for the better, but I believe the effect and message of this story is strong and profound enough to positively influence the masses. Were all going to die someday, and The Light Bringer reveals the wonders that await us.
REVIEW; Superb! The Light Bringer displays an outstanding supernatural adventure that will pull you into a world beyond life itself and make you wonder if it's really a work of fiction. A chilling movement across the threshold that separates this world and the next, The Light Bringer bridges the gap between the light and darkness, goodness and evil that exist in this world and our life beyond. Dr. Tom Hill, Coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur's Soul. (Dr. Tom Hill ) REVIEW: In a powerful way, The Light Bringer helps the reader consider how well they are following the path of Light - and what temptations from the Darkside they need to carefully turn away from. I recommend this bookto any one who is willing to honestly reflect on their life, and the life after." - Ron Brown, PhD Organizational Effectiveness Consultant Author of "The Courageous Life"

Ten Years Since 9/11

Ten Years Since 9/11
This September 11th marks 10 years since 9/11. Over 3,ooo people died on September 11, 2001 when four planes were hijacked (taken over) by members of the overseas-based terrorist group Al-Qaeda (often pronounced Al-keye-duh). Terrorists aim to spread fear and their beliefs through violence. The attacks of that day resulted in the single largest loss of life on American soil from a foreign attack. The names of those who died, including a short paragraph about each person, easily fills a 500-page book. Citizens of nearly half the worlds countries were among the dead. Two of the planes, which left from Boston that morning, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were intentionally crashed into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York City. 2,823 people died, including 343 firefighters. 92 passengers and crew were on the flight. American Airlines Flight 77, which took off from Dulles Airport near Washington D.C., crashed into the Pentagon headquarters of the United States military leadership. 189 people were killed, including 64 passengers and crew members. Terrorists may have been targeting the fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, for the White House or the U.S. Capitol building. The passengers on board heroically tried to regain control of the plane from the hijackers crashing the plane in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. All 45 passengers and crew on board were killed but their actions likely saved many lives at the intended target. September 11, 2001 started out as a sunny Tuesday morning like many others. Families kissed each other goodbye as they went off to work or school. But by around 9 am, the day had gone terribly wrong. There were reports that a plane had hit one of the two World Trade Center towers but many people thought initially that it must have been an accident by a small plane. About 15 minutes later, another plane hit the second tower and people began to realize they werent accidents. Because news stations were already reporting on the first tower being hit, cameras were showing the towers as the second plane hit, live on television. And what viewers and other eyewitnesses saw wasnt a small plane, it was a very large passenger airplane, flying much lower and much faster than usual, intentionally crashing into the building. The World Trade Center represented much of what Al-Qaeda did not like about America the buildings were among the tallest symbols of American business in the world. One of the towers had been previously attacked in 1993 by a truck driven into its underground parking lot with explosives in it. Increased security measures from that first attack have been credited with saving lives on 9/11. Even if you saw the Twin Towers in person, its hard to comprehend how big they were. The North Tower was 1,368 feet high (the one with the antenna), the South Tower was 1,362 feet high. Each tower had 110 floors. Each floor was an acre (close to the size of a football field on every floor). People who

worked there sometimes joked that they got their exercise just walking to the other end of their office. 30,000 cups of coffee were served every day to the 50,000 people who worked there and the over 150,000 people who used the subways and trains underneath on a daily basis. Five other smaller buildings made up the entire World Trade Center complex. The buildings werent full yet that morning. It was early and many people were still on their way to work. The observation deck wasnt open yet so there werent many tourists yet either. It was also early in the school year and some parents were taking their children to school. It was voting day in primary elections and some people were delayed stopping to vote on their way to work. And there had been an exciting football game on TV the night before between the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos. The game ended after midnight and Giants fans who stayed up late to cheer their team on may have gotten a later, sleepy start the next morning. All these factors may have played a role in less people being in the buildings when they were hit. The first plane hit the North Tower at 8:48 am between the 93rd and 99th floors. The second plane hit the South Tower at 9:03 between the 77th and 85th floors. It took many who were able to escape over an hour to get down the stairs. Meanwhile firefighters and emergency responders selflessly made their way up the very same stairs people were filing down helping those who were burned or injured, and directing people down. Unfortunately, something almost unimaginable happened. The South Tower completely collapsed. And then half an hour later the North Tower collapsed too. The towers collapse killed many more people, including rescue workers who had arrived to help. By 10:30 am the Twin Towers, beacons in the New York City skyline, were completely gone. 110-story buildings were condensed into 10 stories of rubble. The dust created from the debris coated everything for blocks. Bob Walsh, Business Manager for Structural Ironworkers Local 40, described it this way: The steel was all twisted like pretzels, peeled right off just like a banana. Papers from offices fell like snow.

World Trade Center buildings 5 and 7 also collapsed. Numerous other neighboring buildings partially collapsed or were damaged. New York citys mayor, Rudy Giuliani (pronounced: Ju-lee-ah-nee) was quick to respond and led the city through the tragedy. The citys Emergency Command Center had been located in one of the World Trade Center buildings so they had to operate out of an old firehouse not far away. Mayor Giuliani, an admirer of famous British World War II leader Sir Winston Churchill, later said he tried to emulate Churchills leadership during those difficult times. President George W. Bush was reading a book to children in a 2nd grade classroom in Florida when he was informed of the attacks. The clean-up effort at Ground Zero was enormous and dangerous. Fires within the wreckage burned 3 months later. One of the planes jet engines was found 1/3 of a mile away. Rescue workers would later get sick from breathing in the contaminated air at the site; some have since died. The 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists directly involved in the attacks died but President Bush and later his successor, President Obama, vowed to bring the group and its leader, Osama bin Laden, to justice. The United States, and its allies, led a War on Terror, including operations in Afghanistan, where Al-Qaeda was based, and Iraq. Troops are just now withdrawing from those countries. More American soldiers have lost their lives in the War on Terror than people who died on 9/11. Al-Qaedas leader, Osama bin Laden, was finally found by U.S. forces in May of this year. Since September 11, 2001, our country and the way we live our daily lives has changed. Our government focuses a lot more on keeping our nation safe, both inside and outside our country, some in ways that we see and some that we dont. For example, you may notice when you fly, that there are long lines to go through security to try to make sure that such plane hijackings dont happen again. Continued on Page 20

Ten Years Since 9/11
Continued from Page 29
In addition to the destruction, the anger, the sadness, and the war it spawned, 9/11 also brought out good in many people. Rescue workers worked tirelessly for months and regular citizens came together to help each other in ways they rarely had before. The Governor of New York at the time, George Pataki, said it well: On that terrible day, a nation became a neighborhood. There was a lot of debate over whether the towers should be rebuilt, and if so, whether they should be the same as before. 1 World Trade (Freedom Tower) is currently under construction next to where the towers used to be. It will be 1,776 feet high symbolizing the year the Declaration of Independence was signed. It will be officially taller than the World Trade Center towers because of a lighted mast that will raise it to its symbolic height. A memorial is also being dedicated on the tenth anniversary that includes reflecting pools in the footprints of the towers. On September 11, the nation will take time to honor and remember the people who unexpectedly lost their lives that day, including the emergency responders who saved so many lives that morning but in many cases not their own. Many will also give thanks to those who work to protect our freedom and continue to hope that nothing like this ever happens again.

Major Terrorist Acts Suspected of or Inspired by al-Qaeda

Continued from Page 18
2009 (Dec.): A Nigerian man on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit attempted to ignite an explosive device hidden in his underwear. The explosive device that failed to detonate was a mixture of powder and liquid that did not alert security personnel in the airport. The alleged bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told officials later that he was directed by the terrorist group al-Qaeda. The suspect was already on the government's watch list when he attempted the bombing; his father, a respected Nigerian banker, had told the U.S. government that he was worried about his son's increased extremism. 2009 (Dec.): A suicide bomber kills eight Americans civilians, seven of them CIA agents, at a base in Afghanistan. It's the deadliest attack on the agency since 9/11. The attacker is reportedly a double agent from Jordan who was acting on behalf of al-Qaeda. 2010 (Oct.): Two packages are found on separate cargo planes. Each package contains a bomb consisting of 300 to 400 grams (11-14 oz) of plastic explosives and a detonating mechanism. The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia's security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Reconsider 9/11 memorial, Mayor Bloomberg

By Jay Sekulow
Sept. 11th revealed terrible and great truths. The terrible was obvious: Evil is real, and evil men can inflict great harm. But the greatness gives us strength to this day. There is a deep well of courage in the American spirit courage displayed at Ground Zero, at the Pentagon, and in the air over Pennsylvania. There's also a deep well of faith faith displayed even as the smoke still poured from the World Trade Center site. OUR VIEW: Respect families' wishes at Ground Zero ceremony New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's decision not to invite clergy of any faith to commemorate the anniversary Sunday at Ground Zero is a mistake. The move is deeply offensive to the many Americans who find solace and healing in prayer. For many, 9/11 is not a distant memory. It's still very real. Many face day-to-day struggles to cope with the loss of loved ones. In the days following 9/11, prayer was an integral part of the grieving process. Thousands attended the "Prayer for America" event at Yankee Stadium, where representatives of many faiths offered prayers. It was an event that united, not divided, Americans. The nation has a long and cherished history of prayer, from the first prayer in Congress in 1774 to the National Day of Prayer celebrated each year. Even the Supreme Court acknowledges our religious heritage. Justice Sandra Day O'Connor put it this way: "It is unsurprising that a nation founded by religious

refugees and dedicated to religious freedom should find references to divinity in its symbols, songs, mottoes, and oaths." There's a growing chorus of Americans religious and non-religious alike calling on Mayor Bloomberg to reconsider his decision. And in the past week, we have heard from thousands of Americans who have signed our letter urging Mayor Bloomberg to change his mind. He still has time to act. He should clear the way for clergy and religious leaders to participate to pray for our nation, and to pray for those who are still suffering from the pain and loss of Sept. 11, 2001.[]

9/11 Commission Report

9/11 Commission Report
The 9/11 Commission Report, formally named Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, is the official report of the events leading up to the September 11, 2001 attacks. It was prepared by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (informally sometimes known as the "9/11 Commission" or the "Kean/Hamilton Commission") at the request of the President and Congress, and is available to the public for sale or free download. The commission was established on November 27, 2002 (442 days after the attack) and their final report was issued on July 22, 2004. The report was originally scheduled for release on May 27, 2004, but a compromise agreed to by Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert allowed a sixty-day extension through July 26.

The Commission interviewed over 1,200 people in 10 countries and reviewed over two and a half million pages of documents, including some closely guarded classified national security documents. The Commission also relied heavily on the FBI's PENTTBOM investigation. Before it was released by the Commission, the final public report was screened for any potentially classified information and edited as necessary. After releasing the report, Commission Chair Thomas Kean declared that both Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were "not well served" by the FBI and CIA. In addition to identifying intelligence failures occurring before the attacks, the report provided evidence of the following: * Airport security footage of the hijackers as they passed through airport security * Excerpts from the United Airlines Flight 93 cockpit voice recording, which recorded the sounds of the hijackers in the cockpit and the passengers' attempts to regain control * Eyewitness testimony of passengers as they described their own final moments to family members and authorities on airphones and cellphones from the cabins of doomed airliners The Commission also concluded 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the attacks were from Saudi Arabia, but found no evidence the government of Saudi Arabia conspired in the attacks, or that it funded the attackers. Mohamed Atta, the leader of the attacks, was from Egypt. Two hijackers were from the United Arab Emirates, and one was from Lebanon. According to the Commission, all 19 hijackers were members of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, led by Osama bin Laden. In addition, while meetings between al-Qaeda representatives and Iraqi government officials had taken place, the panel had no credible evidence that Saddam Hussein had assisted alQaeda in preparing or executing the 9/11 attacks. The Commission's final report also

offered new evidence of increased contact between Iran and al-Qaeda. The report contains information about how several of the 9/11 hijackers passed through Iran, and indicates that officials in Iran did not place entry stamps in their passports. However, according to the report (Chapter 7), there is no evidence that Iran was aware of the actual 9/11 plot. Iran has since implemented several widely publicized efforts to shut down al-Qaeda cells operating within its country. The Commission Report chose to place blame for failure to notify the military squarely upon the FAA. Ben Sliney, FAA operations manager at Herndon, Virginia, and Monte Belger, FAA Acting Deputy Administrator on 9/11 both stated to the Commission that military liaisons were present and participating in Herndon's response as the events of 9/11 unfolded. Sliney stated that everyone who needed to be notified, including the military, was. In addition to its findings, the report made extensive recommendations for changes that can be made to help prevent a similar attack. These include the creation of a National Intelligence Director over both the CIA and the FBI, and many changes in border security and immigration policy. The report is available free of charge online, or can be purchased as a paperback

(ISBN 0-393-32671-3). In addition, Barnes and Noble has independently published the report in hardcover with an index (ISBN 0-7607-68064). Continued on Page 24

9/11 Commission Report

9/11 Commission Report
Continued from Page 21 Public Diplomacy and War on Terror
The 9/11 commission report states that long-term success demands the use of all the elements of national power: diplomacy, intelligence, covert action, law enforcement, economic policy, foreign aid, public diplomacy, and homeland defense. Quantitative numbers will not defeat the terrorists and insurgents; however the objectives of defeating the enemy need to be specific enough so that the public can determine whether the goals are being met. In order to defeat an insurgency one must promote a stronger ideology, value system, and security environment, than the opposition. The 9/11 commission emphasizes the use of public diplomacy. Defeating insurgents and terrorists is not based on traditional war tactics; it encompasses a national strategic effort that employs all elements of national power. In 2003, the U.S. government realized how important political and cultural support was to the counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan. An Afghani regional official claimed that Afghanistan was on the right track for a stable government and begged the United States not to leave the theater, claiming that Afghanistan would lose progress if the U.S. withdrew their political support and local outreach to the public.[6] The Afghan population is able to interact with U.S. presence in their country, allowing them to feel more secure and safe, thus countering the insurgent ideology. The ability of the United States to interact with the local Afghani population has been an essential tool to winning the counterinsurgency operations in the country. According to the 9/11 Commission, conducting public diplomacy with the local population of Afghanistan is necessary for longterm success within the country. A former Under Secetary of the State for Public Diplomacy and both chairmen of the 9/11 Commission expresssed the view that public diplomacy tools are at least as important in the war on terrorism as military tools and should be given equal state and increased funding. Longterm public diplomacy efforts in Afghanistan will help show that the new Afghani government will be able to make their lives better and more secure than an insurgency controlled government. The 9/11 Commission states that currently the United States envisions an eventual Afghani government that is able to build a national army, coordinate infrastructure, and coordinate public services in major provinces throughout the country. The 9/11 commission also suggests an increased effort in the U.S. State Department and the international community to become involved with the rule of law and contain rampant crime and narcotics trafficking in the area. However, in order to carry out these long-term goals the U.S. should rely on civilian-military teams in order to reach out to the population and listen to their concerns and implement them with the Afghani government effectively. Currently there is a strong realization that negative public opinion about the U.S.

could directly relate to how friendly countries in the Middle East will be in the war on terror, mainly in Afghanistan.] Recently American involvement in the Middle East has not been accepted well; support for the United States has plummeted. The 9/11 Commission shows that favorable ratings for the United States has fallen from 61% to 15% in Indonesia and from 71% to 38% among Muslims in Nigeria. It also states that many disgruntled views about the U.S. develop from uninformed minds about America and that are distorted by cartoon ideologies. Local newspapers in Middle Eastern countries that reinforce the Jihadist theme, portraying the U.S. as anti-Muslim, influence these fragile views. These ideas need to be effectively countered in order to win our counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan and our ideological war against Muslim extremism.More recently Congress and the Administration has sought ways to use these public diplomacy tactics to influence Arab populations to combat insurgents and terrorists. Most Muslims are moderate and do not agree with violence, the Commission claims that it is possible, through the use of public diplomay, to drive a wedge between those moderate Muslims and the violent terrorists or insugents. The U.S. also needs to stand for a better future and illustrate it to the local population in Afghanistan and to the Muslim community. The U.S. needs to take the moral leadership role in Afghanistan and throughout the world. For parents, insurgents in Afghanistan can only offer their children violence and death; the U.S. should utilize public diplomacy to counter the insurgent ideology. American values and ideals are something that the Muslim population can connect to, agree with, and feel secure with. The 9/11 commission advises that the U.S. stands up for its values and ideals to prevent the insurgents from distorting the ideology of liberty to persuade the Muslim world into the insurgent or terrorist ideology. Only through use of public diplomacy can the U.S. counter these political and ideological distortions. Explaining and making clear the U.S. stance on morality, freedom, and liberty to the local populations in the Middle East allows the U.S. to promote the

American counterinsurgency effort in Afghanistan. The 9/11 commission elaborates on the example of humane treatment of prisoners of war. In order for the local populations of countries like Afghanistan, the U.S. and allies need to project a higher image of morality by the civil and humane treatment of terrorists that are captured. Accusations that the U.S. abuses its prisoners make it more difficult to win political, social, and diplomatic relations in our civilian-military operations in Afghanistan.[13] Without careful prevention of derogatory use of information by the enemy, the United States will become a victim of the enemys use of public diplomacy in war. The 9/11 commission believes that public diplomacy should be viewed as a dialogue with Arab populations, to enable a greater understanding between cultures and societies and to build those long-term relationships and trust that is needed to be successful at counterinsurgency warfare. If we dont have long-term relationships with Muslim populations, we cannot have trust. Without trust, public diplomacy is ineffective.

The Report has been accused of not giving the whole story about the warnings the U.S. received prior to the attacks. While the Report did describe that "the system was blinking red" and that an al Qaeda attack was imminent, it did not include the testimony of former CIA director George Tenet to the Commission in January 2004, in which he claimed to have given a specific warning to the Administration in a July 2001 meeting with Condoleezza Rice. Commission members Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton stated that they had not been told about the meeting. But the Boston Globe reported that "it turns out that the panel was, in fact, told about the meeting, according to the interview transcript and Democratic Commission member Richard BenVeniste, who sat in on the interview with Tenet."

Continued from Page 24
FAA counter-terrorism expert Bogdan Dzakovic believes that the security failures at airports that allowed the hijackers to board the planes were not due to the failures in the system that the Report identified. Furthermore, he stated that "Many of the FAA bureaucrats that actively thwarted improvements in security prior to 9/11 have been promoted by FAA or the Transportation Security Administration." The report did not mention his name, despite Dzakovic giving the following testimony to the Commission regarding his undercover checks on airport security prior to 9/11: We breached security up to 90 percent of the time. The FAA suppressed these warnings. Instead, we were ordered not to write up our reports and not to retest airports where we found particularly egregious vulnerabilities, to see if the problems had been fixed. Finally, the agency started providing advance notification of when we would be conducting our 'undercover' tests and what we would be 'checking.' . . . What happened on 9/11 was not a failure in the system. Our airports are not safer now than before 9/11. The main difference between then and now is that life is now more miserable for passengers. Other sources have criticized the Commission for not digging deep enough to get to the core of the issues. In a 2004 interview, Bernard Gwertzman, of the Council on Foreign Relations, stated of the Report: Again, one of the great problems in the commission report is that it looked at exactly one issue counterterrorism and none of the others. But [U.S.] intelligence users consist of more than one million people, many of them in uniform, and when you talk about budgeting and programming authority, you have to consider that. . . . Many of these conclusions are probably very valuable. But this is a 13-chapter report. Eleven chapters are a masterful description of what happened and what went wrong that led to the 9/11 attack. There is no chapter that explains what people did after 9/11. There is no chapter that qualifies that this is only one of many problems in intelligence and intelligence reform." In a 2004 article titled, 'Whitewash as Public Service: How The 9/11 Commission Report defrauds the nation,' Harper's Magazine writer Benjamin DeMott stated that: The plain, sad reality . . . is that The 9/11 Commission Report, despite the vast quantity of labor behind it, is a cheat and a fraud. It stands as a series of evasive maneuvers that infantilize the audience, transform candor into iniquity, and conceal realities that demand immediate inspection and confrontation. . . . At the core of all these failures lies a deep wariness of earnest, well-informed public debate." []

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

by Allan Wood, Paul Thompson It was an interesting day. President Bush, recalling 9/11 [White House, 1/5/02]
At approximately 8:48 a.m. on the morning of September 11, 2001, the first pictures of the burning World Trade Center were broadcast on live television. The news anchors, reporters, and viewers had little idea what had happened in lower Manhattan, but there were some people who did know. By that time, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon, the White House, the Secret Service, and Canadas Strategic Command all knew that three commercial airplanes had been hijacked. They knew that one plane had been flown deliberately into the World Trade Centers North Tower; a second plane was wildly off course and also heading toward Manhattan; and a third plane had abruptly turned around over Ohio and was flying back toward Washington, DC. So why, at 9:03 a.m.fifteen minutes after it was clear the United States was under terrorist attackdid President Bush sit down with a classroom of second-graders and begin a 20-minute pre-planned photo op? No one knows the answer to that question. In fact, no one has even asked Bush about it. Bushs actions on September 11 have been the subject of lively debate, mostly on the internet. Details reported that day and in the week after the attacksboth the media reports and accounts given by Bush himselfhave changed radically over the past 18 months. Culling hundreds of reports from newspapers, magazines, and the internet has only made finding the truth of what happened and when it happened more confusing. In the changed political climate after 9/11, few have dared raise challenging questions about Bushs actions. A journalist who said Bush was flying around the country like a scared child, seeking refuge in his mothers bed after having a nightmare and another who said Bush skedaddled were fired. [Washington Post, 9/29/01 (B)] We should have a concise record of where President Bush was throughout the day the US was attacked, but we do not. What follows is an attempt to give the most complete account of Bushs actions from Florida to Louisiana to Nebraska to Washington, DC.

September 7. [White House, 9/7/01] Later that same day, 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan Alshehhi traveled to Sarasota and enjoyed drinks and dinner at a Holiday Inn only two miles down the sandy beach from where Bush was scheduled to stay during his Sarasota visit. [Longboat Observer, 11/21/01, Washington Post, 1/27/02] On the night of September 10th, Bush stayed at the Colony Beach Resortan upscale and relatively pristine tropical island enclave located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, a spindly coral island off Sarasota, Florida. [AP, 07/29/01] Zainlabdeen Omer, a Sudanese native living in Sarasota, told the local police that night that someone he knew who had made violent threats against Bush was in town and Omer was worried about Bushs safety. The man was identified only as Ghandi. A police report states the Secret Service was informed immediately. [Hopsicker, 7/22/02] After a private dinner with various Florida politicians (including his brother Jeb) and Republican donors, Bush went to bed around 10:00 p.m. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01, Washington Post, 1/27/02] Surface-to-air missiles were placed on the roof of the resort [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/10/02], and an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) plane circled high overhead. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 25] Its not clear if this type of protection was standard for the president or whether security was increased because of possible threats.

An Assassination Attempt?
Bush awoke a little before 6:00 a.m. on September 11, pulled on shorts and an old Tshirt and laced up his running shoes. [CBS, 11/1/02] At 6:30 a.m., Bush, a reporter friend, and his Secret Service crew took a four-mile jog in the half-light of dawn around a nearby golf course. [Washington Post, 1/27/02, Washington Post, 09/11/01] At about the same time Bush was getting ready for his jog, a van carrying several Middle Eastern men pulled up to the Colonys guard station. The men said they were a television news crew with a scheduled poolside interview with the president. They asked for a

Bushs appearance at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, on September 11, 2001 had been in the planning stages since August [Booker web site], but was only publicly announced on the morning of

certain Secret Service agent by name. The message was relayed to a Secret Service agent inside the resort, who hadnt heard of the agent mentioned or of plans for an interview. He told the men to contact the presidents public relations office in Washington, DC, and had the van turned away. [Longboat Observer, 9/26/01] The Secret Service may have foiled an assassination attempt. Two days earlier, Ahmed Shah Massoud, leader of Afghanistans Northern Alliance, had been murdered by a similar ruse. Two North African men, posing as journalists from Arabic News International, had been requesting an interview with Massoud since late August. Ahmad Jamsheed, Massouds secretary, said that by the night of September 8, they were so worried and excitable, they were begging us. An interview was arranged for the following day. As it began, a bomb hidden in the video camera exploded, killing the two journalists. Massoud was rushed by helicopter to a hospital in Tajikistan, but was pronounced dead on arrival (although his death was not acknowledged until September 15). [International Policy Institute for CounterTerrorism, 10/30/01, Newsday, 10/26/01] The assassination is widely believed to have been timed to remove the Talibans most popular and respected opponent in anticipation of the backlash that would occur after the 9/11 attacks. [BBC, 9/10/01, BBC, 9/10/01 (B), Time, 8/4/02, St. Petersburg Times, 9/9/02] The Northern Alliance blamed al-Qaeda and the ISI, Pakistans secret service, for the attacks. [Radio Free Europe, 9/10/01, Newsday, 9/15/01, Reuters, 10/4/01] Nearly three hours after the incident at the Colony, another Longboat Key resident reported a run-in with possibly the same men. At about 8:50 (when reports of the first World Trade Center crash were first broadcast), while standing on the Sarasota bay front waiting for the presidential motorcade to pass by, this man saw two Middle Eastern men in a dilapidated van screaming out the windows Down with Bush and raising their fists in the air. The FBI questioned the man, but its not known if this was the same van that had visited the Colony. [Longboat Observer, 9/26/01] Continued on Page 28 The X Zone Radio Show Podcasts

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 26
Later on the morning of September 11, the Secret Service searched a Sarasota apartment looking for further corroboration of Zainlabdeen Omers report of an assassination threat. Three Sudanese men were questioned for about ten hours. The Secret Service also raided a beauty supply store in Sarasota, whose owner, identified as Hakim, told the agents that Ghandi was a member of the Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army, a group fighting against the fundamentalist Muslim government in Sudan. [Hopsicker, 7/22/02] Monica Yadav of Sarasotas ABC News 40 reported that a few days after the Secret Service visit, the beauty supply store was closed up and Hakim was long gone. Yadav also learned that Zainlabdeen Omer had suddenly quit his jobs and vacated his apartment. All I know is he cant leave town, a friend of Omers told Yadav. Omer got in a lot of trouble with the law. The Special Agent in charge of the Presidential detail in Sarasota told Yadav that Bush was never in any danger and the various warnings and possible terrorist connections were all just a coincidence. [Hopsicker, 7/22/02] Yet, as we will see below, there are more details of a threat against Bush before he left Sarasota.

Bush Is Briefed as the Hijackings Begin

After his jog, Bush showered, then sat down for his daily intelligence briefing around 8 a.m. The Presidents briefing appears to have included some reference to the heightened terrorist risk reported throughout the summer, but contained nothing specific, severe or imminent enough to necessitate a call to [National Security Advisor] Condoleezza Rice. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] While Bush was being briefed, the planes that would be hijacked began taking off. American Airlines Flight 11 was first, leaving Bostons Logan Airport at 7:59 a.m. The others soon followed, except for United Flight 93, scheduled to leave at 8:01, but which was delayed on the runway for about 40 minutes. [Boston Globe, 11/23/01] (For more information on the four flights, see Flight 11, Flight 175, Flight 77, Flight 93.) At approximately 8:13, Flight 11 was instructed by air traffic controllers at the FAAs Boston Center, in Nashua, New Hampshire, to climb to 35,000 feet. The plane did not obey the order and its transponder was turned off. Air traffic control manager Glenn Michael said, we considered it at that time to be a possible hijacking. [AP, 8/12/02, emphasis added] According to FAA regulations, that was the correct decision: Consider that an aircraft emergency exists when there is unexpected loss of radar contact and radio communications with any aircraft. [FAA Air Traffic Control Regulations, Chapter 10, Section 2-5 ]

If air traffic controllers believed Flight 11 had been hijacked at 8:13, NORAD should have been informed immediately, so military planes could be scrambled to investigate. However, NORAD and the FAA both claimed NORAD was not informed until 8:4027 minutes later. [NORAD, 9/18/01, AP, 8/12/02, AP, 8/19/02, Newsday, 9/10/02; one NORAD employee said it took place at 8:31, ABC News, 9/11/02] Indeed, before contacting NORAD, Boston air traffic controllers watched Flight 11 make an unexpected 100-degree turn and head south toward New York City [Christian Science Monitor, 9/13/01], told other controllers of the hijacking at 8:25 [Guardian, 10/17/01], continued to hear highly suspicious dialogue from the cockpit (such as, Nobody move, please, we are going back to the airport. Dont try to make any stupid moves ) [Guardian, 10/17/01, New York Times, 10/16/01], and even asked the pilots of Flight 175 to scan the skies for the errant plane. [Guardian, 10/17/01, Boston Globe, 11/23/01] Is NORADs claim credible? If so, the air traffic controllers (including Mr. Michael) should have been fired and subject to possible criminal charges for their inaction. To date, however, there has been no word of any person being disciplined at any institution at any level for what happened on 9/11. If NORADs claim is false, and it was indeed informed within the time frame outlined in FAA regulations that Flight 11 may have been hijacked, that would mean NORAD did absolutely nothing for almost thirty minuteswhile a hijacked commercial airliner flew off course through some of the most congested airspace in the world. Presumably, that would warrant some very serious charges. Again, no one associated with NORAD or the FAA has been punished. According to phone calls made by fight attendants Betty Ong and Amy Sweeney, the hijackers had stabbed and killed at least one passenger and two flight attendants by about 8:21. [ABC News, 7/18/02, Boston Globe,

11/23/01, AP, 10/5/01, Los Angeles Times, 9/20/01] (One hijacker may have been riding in the cockpit and begun the hijacking earlier.) After 8:21, both women apparently remained on the phone with American Airlines headquarters for 25 minutes, until their plane crashed into the World Trade Centers North Tower. [ABC News, 7/18/02, AP, 10/5/01] These calls make NORADs supposed ignorance of a crisis even more dubious.

Bush Leaves for Booker Elementary

Around the same time the Flight 11 hijackers were stabbing passenger Daniel Lewinat 8:20 a.m.Bushs briefing ended and he said good-bye to the Colonys general manager. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] The first event on Bushs schedule was what is known as a soft event – a photo-op with children at Emma Booker Elementary Schoolpromoting his proposed education bill. [Sarasota HeraldTribune, 9/11/01] After spending about 20 minutes with the children, Bush was scheduled to give a short press conference at about 9:30. [White House, 9/7/01, Federal News Service, 9/10/01] Accounts of when Bushs motorcade left for the school vary from 8:30 to 8:39. [8:30, Washington Post, 1/27/02, 8:35, Sarasota Magazine, 9/19/01, 8:39, Washington Times, 10/7/02] One account has the Bush party leave the Colony suite at 8:30 and drive away at 8:39. Whenever he left, the motorcade traveled quickly: The police shut down traffic in both directions, leaving roads utterly deserted for Bushs long motorcade, which barreled along at 40 mph, running red lights with impunity. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, pp. 37-38] At 40 mph, it would take about 14 minutes to travel the nine-mile distance to the school.

Continued from Page 28
Several accounts say the journey took about 20 minutes [New York Times, 9/16/01 (B), St. Petersburg Times, 9/8/02 (B), MSNBC, 10/29/02], which means that Bush arrived shortly before 9:00. [8:46, ABC News, 9/11/02, 8:55, Washington Times, 10/7/02, 8:55, Sarasota Magazine, 9/19/01, just before 9:00,Telegraph, 12/16/01, shortly before 9:00,Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/10/02, just before 9:00,New York Times, 9/16/01 (B), 9:00, Albuquerque Tribune, 9/10/02]

When Did Bush First Learn of the Attacks?

Why does it matter when Bush left the resort and arrived at the school? Because this is the crucial time when Bush was first told, or should have been told, of the attacks. Official accounts, including the words of Bush himself, say Bush was first told of what was happening in New York City after he arrived at the school. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, CBS, 9/11/02] However, this statement does not stand up to scrutiny. There are at least four reports that Bush was told of the first crash before he arrived at the school. Two accounts explicitly state Bush was told while in the motorcade. The President was on Highway 301, just north of Main Street [when] he received the news that a plane had crashed in New York City. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] (See adjacent map for the location where he is told.) Another account states, Bush was driving to the school in a motorcade when the phone rang. An airline accident appeared to have happened. He pressed on with his visit. [Observer, 9/16/01] The first media reports of Flight 11s crash into the World Trade Center began around 8:48, two minutes after the crash happened. [New York Times, 9/15/01] CNN broke into its regular programming at that time [CNN, 9/11/01], though other networks, such as ABC, took a few more minutes to begin reporting. [ABC, 9/14/02] So within minutes, millions were aware of the story, yet Bush supposedly remained unaware for about another ten minutes. Claims of Bushs ignorance become harder to believe when one learns that others in his motorcade were immediately told of the attack. For instance, Kia Baskerville, a CBS News producer traveling with Bush that morning, received a message about a plane crash as the presidential motorcade headed to President Bushs first event. Baskerville said, Fifteen minutes later I was standing in a second grade classroom [waiting for Bushs Miss An Episode of The X Zone Radio Show? No Problem!

entrance]which means she got the news at about 8:47right as the story was first being reported. [CBS, 8/19/02] A news photographer in the motorcade overheard a radio transmission that Press Secretary Ari Fleischer would be needed on arrival at the school to discuss reports of some sort of crash. [Christian Science Monitor, 9/17/01] Another account notes Fleischer got the news that the crash had occurred just minutes before, but notes that Bush was not in the same car as Fleischer. [CBS, 11/1/02] Senior presidential communications officer Thomas Herman said, Just as we were arriving at the school, I received a notification from our operations center than [sic] an airliner had struck one of the towers. [Marist College Magazine, Fall 2002] Meanwhile, CIA Director George Tenet was told of the crash a few minutes after it happened. A messenger gave him the news as he was eating breakfast with former Senator David Boren in a Washington restaurant three blocks from the White House. Boren says Tenet was told that the World Trade Center had been attacked by an airplane: I was struck by the fact that [the messenger] used the word attacked. An aide then handed a cell phone to Tenet, and Tenet made some calls, showing that at least some at the highest levels of the Bush administration were talking about an attack at this time. Tenet then said to Boren, You know, this has bin Ladens fingerprints all over it. [ABC, 9/14/02] Some people at the school also heard of the news before Bush arrived. Around 8:50, Tampa Bays Channel 8 reporter Jackie Barron was on the phone with her mother, who mentioned the first news reports. At almost the same time, Brian Goff, a Fox reporter from Tampa, heard the same thing on his cell phone. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] Associated Press reporter Sonia Ross was also told of the crash by phone from a colleague. [AP, 9/12/01 (D)] Florida Congressman Dan Miller, waiting in front of the school as part of the official greeting party, was told by an aide about the crash at 8:55, before Bush arrived. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] Given all this, how could Bush have remained ignorant? Could he have been out of the loop because he was in a car? No. The previous night, Colony Resort manager Katie Klauber Moulon toured the presidential limousine and marveled at all the phones and electronic equipment. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] Karl Rove, Bushs chief political strategist, who presumably was riding with Bush, used a wireless e-mail device on 9/11 as well. [Newsweek, 10/14/02] There seems to have been ample opportunity and the means to alert Bush.

very good thing the Secret Service knows who I am, Loewer later said. She told Bush that an aircraft had impacted the World Trade Center. This is all we know. [Catholic Telegraph, 12/7/01, AP, 11/26/01]

Meanwhile, More Hijackings

Even though Flight 175 left about the same time as Flight 11, it appears to have been hijacked much later. At 8:41, its pilot was still talking to ground control [New York Times, 10/16/01], but at 8:42 it sharply veered off course, and a flight controller noted that its transponder had been turned off and communication cut. [Boston Globe, 11/23/01, New York Times, 10/16/01] One minute later, at 8:43, NORAD was notified the plane had been hijacked. [NORAD, 9/18/01] The hijackers turned the transponder back on but used a different signal code. This allowed flight controllers to easily track the plane as it flew toward New York City. [Washington Post, 9/17/01] At about 8:46, Flight 77 began to go severely off course. According to regulations, a fighter is required to be dispatched if a plane strays from its official course by more than two miles or 15 degrees [MSNBC, 9/12/01]. As the adjacent map shows, Flight 77 returned to its proper course for a time, but its last radio contact occurred at 8:50. [Guardian, 10/17/01] Supposedly, NORAD was not officially notified that Flight 77 has been hijacked until 9:24 [NORAD, 9/18/01], but the New York Times reported that by around 8:50, military officials at the Pentagon were already discussing what to do about Flight 77. [New York Times, 9/15/01] Note the difference in notification times: 27 minutes for Flight 11, 1 minute for Flight 175 and 38 minutes for Flight 77. Flight 93 wasnt hijacked until about 9:16, but by about 8:50, it was clear that at least three planes had been hijacked. Vice President Dick Cheney, speaking on NBCs Meet the Press, said, The Secret Service has an arrangement with the FAA. They had open lines after the World Trade Center was [Meet the Press, 9/16/01] Cheney never finished his sentence (interesting in itselfdid he say too much?), but it seems safe to say that his next word would have been hit. Cheneys statement makes it clear the Secret Service knew the extent of the situation well before 9:00 am. Continued on Page 32

Another Warning
If Bush wasnt told while in his limousine, he certainly was told immediately after he got out of it. US Navy Captain Deborah Loewer, the director of the White House Situation Room, was traveling in the motorcade when she received a message from an assistant back in Washington about the first crash. Loewer said that as soon as the car arrived at Booker, she ran quickly over to Bush. Its a

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 31 An Accident?
Intelligence agencies were suffering warning fatigue from so many warnings of an al-Qaeda attack [Independent, 9/7/02], some specifically mentioning the use of hijacked airplanes as missiles (see this essay). Bush himself was given an intelligence briefing a month earlier entitled Bin Laden to Strike in US, and it contained a warning from the British government that the US should expect multiple airline hijackings from al-Qaeda. [Sunday Herald, 5/19/02] So with the clear knowledge that three planes had been hijacked, with one of them already crashed into the World Trade Center, who would have possibly assumed that Flight 11s crash was an accident? Yet that is precisely what the official story claims. There are a number of different official accounts, but all of them stress that Bush wasnt told until after he arrived inside the school (contrary to the account of Captain Loewer) and that it was assumed to be an accident (contradicting Tenet being told that it was an attack). In some accounts, President Bush had emerged from his car and was shaking hands with local officials standing outside the school when Chief of Staff Andrew Card sidled up to him with the news. [CBS, 11/1/02] Bush later recalled that it was Card who first notified him: Heres what youre going to be doing; youre going to meet so-and-so, such-and-such. Then Andy Card said, By the way, an aircraft flew into the World Trade Center. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] At a press conference later that day, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer also claimed it was Andy Card who first informed him, as the President finished shaking hands in a hallway of school officials. [Knoxville News Sentinel, 9/11/01] In other accounts, it was advisor Karl Rove who first told Bush. According to photographer Eric Draper, who was standing nearby, Rove rushed up, took Bush aside in a corridor inside the school and said the cause of the crash was unclear. Bush replied, What a horrible accident! Bush also suggested the pilot may have had a heart attack. [Daily Mail, 9/8/02] Dan Bartlett, White House Communications Director, says he was there when Bush was told: [Bush] being a former pilot, had kind of the same reaction, going, was it bad weather? And I said no, apparently not. [ABC News, 9/11/02] A reporter who was standing nearby later said, From the demeanor of the President, grinning at the children, it appeared that the enormity of what he had been told was taking a while to sink in. [Daily Mail, 9/8/02] One account explicitly says that Rove told Bush the World Trade Center had been hit by a large commercial airliner. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] However, Bush later remembered Rove saying it appeared to be an accident involving a small, twin-engine plane.

[Washington Post, 1/27/02, MSNBC, 9/02] In yet another account, Blake Gottesman, Bushs personal assistant, while giving the president some final instructions as they walked to the school, remarked, Andy Card says, By the way, an aircraft flew into the World Trade Center. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, pp. 41-42]

Told Again, Yet Still Clueless

Booker principal Gwen Tose-Rigell was waiting for Bush outside the school. The limousine stops and the president comes out. He walks toward me. Im standing there in a lineup; there are about five people. He walks over and says he has to make a phone call, and hell be right back. [MSNBC, 09/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01] The phone call was with National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. From a room with secure communications, Rice updated Bush on the situation. [Christian Science Monitor, 9/17/01, Time, 9/12/01] The fact that Bush immediately said he had to make an important call strongly suggests he was told about the situation while in the motorcade. But some accounts have Andrew Card saying to Bush as he gets out of his limousine, Mr. President, you really need to take this phone call, thereby implying that Card knows whats going on, but Bush doesnt. [St. Petersburg Times, 9/8/02 (B)] As National Security Advisor, Rice had to have had as much information as anyone. By the time she spoke to Bush, she must have known that three planes had been hijacked and that the country was under attack. We know very little about the conversationonly that Rice later claimed, [Bush] said, what a terrible, it sounds like a terrible accident. Keep me informed. [ABC News, 9/11/02] One reporter noted: Bush did not appear preoccupied [after the phone call] … There was no sign that Rice had just told [him] about the first attack [on the World Trade Center]. [Cox News, 9/12/01 (B)] Tose-Rigell was then summoned to a room to talk with Bush: He said a commercial plane has hit the World Trade Center, and were going to go ahead and go on, were going on to do the reading thing anyway.

[AP, 8/19/02 (D)] One local reporter notes that at this point, He could and arguably should have left Emma E. Booker Elementary School immediately, gotten onto Air Force One and left Sarasota without a moments delay But he didnt. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/12/01 (B)] The only possible excuse is that Bush was completely clueless as to what was happening. Sure enough, at a press conference on the evening of 9/11, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer was asked by a reporter, And then this morning, when Andy Card told him about the first accident, was Andy Card or Condi Rice or any of those aware of the hijackings? What did they know when they- Fleischer cut in and replied, No, at that point they were not. [Knoxville News Sentinel, 9/11/01] So supposedly, 15 minutes after the first crash, none of Bushs aides, not even Rice back in Washington, DC, knew a thing about the hijackings that had been reported to NORAD 20 minutes earlier? This simply is not plausible. Continued on Page 33

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 32 Bushs Confused Recollection
Bushs own recollection of the first crash only complicates the picture. Less than two months after the attacks, Bush made the preposterous claim that he had watched the first attack as it happened on live television. This is the seventh different account of how Bush learned about the first crash (in his limousine, from Loewer, from Card, from Rove, from Gottesman, from Rice, from television). On December 4, 2001, Bush was asked: How did you feel when you heard about the terrorist attack? Bush replied, I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the towerthe TV was obviously on. And I used to fly, myself, and I said, well, theres one terrible pilot. I said, it must have been a horrible accident. But I was whisked off there, I didnt have much time to think about it. [White House, 12/4/01] There was no film footage of the first attack until at least the following day, and Bush didnt have access to a television until 15 or so minutes later. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] The Boston Herald later noted, Think about that. Bushs remark implies he saw the first plane hit the tower. But we all know that video of the first plane hitting did not surface until the next day. Could Bush have meant he saw the second plane hitwhich many Americans witnessed? No, because he said that he was in the classroom when Card whispered in his ear that a second plane hit. [Boston Herald, 10/22/02] Bushs recollection has many precise details. Is he simply confused? Its doubly strange why his advisors didnt correct him orat the very leaststop him from repeating the same story only four weeks later. [White House, 1/5/02, CBS, 9/11/02] On January 5, 2002, Bush stated: Well, I was sitting in a schoolhouse in Florida and my Chief of Staff – well, first of all, when we walked into the classroom, I had seen this plane fly into the first building. There was a TV set on. And you know, I thought it was pilot error and I was amazed that anybody could make such a terrible mistake. And something was wrong with the plane [White House, 1/5/02] Unfortunately, Bush has never been askednot even onceto explain these statements. His memory not only contradicts every single media report, it also contradicts what he said that evening. In his speech to the nation that evening, Bush said: Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our governments emergency response plans. [White House, 9/11/01] Its not known what these emergency plans were, because neither Bush nor anyone in his administration mentioned this immediate response again. Implementing emergency response plans seems to completely contradict Bushs by the way recollection of a small airplane accident.

Inside the Classroom and the Second Plane Crash

Shortly after his call with National Security Advisor Rice, Bush entered Sandra Kay Danielss second-grade class for a photo-op to promote Bushs education policies. [Daily Mail, 9/8/02] The event was to begin precisely at 9:00, but the call pushed it back to about 9:03. [Washington Times, 10/8/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01, Daily Mail, 9/8/02] Numerous reporters who were traveling with the president, as well as members of the local media, watched from the back of the room. [AP, 8/19/02 (D)] Altogether there were about 150 people in the room, only 16 of them students. Bush was introduced to the children and then posed for a number of pictures. Daniels then led the students through some reading exercises (video footage shows this lasted about three minutes). [Salon, 9/12/01 (B)] Bush later related what he was thinking at the time: I was concentrating on the program at this point, thinking about what I was going to say [about the plane crash]. Obviously, I felt it was an accident. I was concerned about it, but there were no alarm bells. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] At 9:03, Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. News of this traveled extremely rapidly. In fact, some of Bushs Secret Service agents watched the second crash live on television in an adjacent room. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/10/02] Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, in the same room as Bush but not near him, immediately received the news on his pager. [CBS, 9/11/02] Other pagers were going off as well. Chief of Staff Andrew Card was in a nearby room when he heard the news. He waited until there was a pause in the reading drill to walk in and tell Bush. [Washington Times, 10/7/02, Washington Times, 10/8/02] The children were getting their books from under their seats to read a story together when Card came in. [Daily Mail, 9/8/02] Card whispered to Bush: A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack. [San Francisco Chronicle, 9/11/02] Another account has Card saying: A second plane has hit the World Trade Center. America is under attack. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] Accounts vary as to when Card gave Bush the news. Some say 9:05 [Salon 9/11/01, New York Times, 9/16/01 (B), Telegraph, 12/16/01, Albuquerque Tribune, 9/10/02], and some say 9:07. [Washington Post, 9/11/01, Washington Times, 10/8/02] ABC News reporter Ann Compton, who was in the room, said she was surprised by the interruption and wrote [the time] down in my reporters notebook, by my watch, 9:07 a.m. [ABC News, 9/11/02]

The ReactionOr Lack of One

Descriptions vary greatly as to how Bush responded to the news. It is said he blanched [Richmond Times-Dispatch, 10/1/02], the color drained from the presidents face [AP, 9/12/01 (D)], he wore a bemused smile [Orlando Sentinel, 9/12/01], because visibly tense and serious [Time, 9/12/01], and so on. Watch the video and draw your own conclusions (the 11-minute video can be viewed

at the Center for Cooperative Research, Buzzflash, Global Free Press, The Emperors New Clothes, or Liberty DYNU). Bush later recalled his own reaction: I am very aware of the cameras. Im trying to absorb that knowledge. I have nobody to talk to. Im sitting in the midst of a classroom with little kids, listening to a childrens story and I realize Im the Commander in Chief and the country has just come under attack. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, CBS, 11/1/02] Asked again what he thought after he heard the news, Bush said, Were at war and somebody has dared attack us and were going to do something about it. I realized I was in a unique setting to receive a message that somebody attacked us … [I]t became evident that we were, you know, that the world had changed. [CBS, 9/11/02] So what did the Commander in Chief do with the knowledge that the United States was under attack? He did nothing. Bush did not say one word. He did not ask Card any questions. He did not give any orders. He did not know who (or which country) was attacking, whether there would be more attacks, what military plans had been taken, what military actions should be takenindeed, he knew virtually nothing about what was going on outside the room. He just sat there. Bush later recalled: There was no time for discussion or anything. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, pp. 83-84] Even stranger, as one newspaper put it, although the nation was under terrorist attack, for some reason, Secret Service agents [did] not bustle him away. [Globe and Mail, 9/12/01] Military pilots must have permission from the White House because only the president has the authority to order a civilian aircraft shot down. [CNN, 10/26/99] But if retaliatory strikes needed to the authorized, Bush was not available. If one of the planes had to be shot down to save more lives on the ground, Bush was not available. Although several fighters had been dispatched to defend New York City, the pilot of one of the planes flying to catch Flight 175 later noted that it wouldnt have mattered if he caught up with it, because only Bush could order a shootdown, and Bush could not be reached in the classroom. [Cape Cod Times, 8/21/02] Secret Service agents and other security personnel had set up a television in a nearby classroom. They turned on the TV just as Flight 175 crashed into the World Trade Center. According to Sarasota County Sheriff Bill Balkwill, who was in the room, a Marine responsible for carrying Bushs phone immediately said to Balkwill, Were out of here. Can you get everyone ready? [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/10/02] But he must have been overruled by someone, because Bush did not leave.

Here is an enlightened book aimed at young adults of the 21st Century, individuals who know that life and consciousness extend beyond the body. Pitkin has transcended the old fright genre of books about ghosts. His over 202 researched stories aim to offer deeper spiritual understanding of life by exploring events dealing with death. Gone are the traditional, simplistic images of malefic evil-bent shades. As the author esteems a new generation of seekers for what is really going on in life, and has an extensive metaphysical background as professional intuitive, he can offer many ghosts unresolved struggles, difficulties that you may share. These tales from New York State, New England and Canada were compiled from hundreds of first-person interviews and the authors (often accompanied by gifted psychics) journeys. The reader can discover many of the issues that can prevent the dead person from resting in peace, but instead, cause the restless consciousness to seek some resolution to problems from the just-ended physical life.

Here are 135 researched ghost stories that you never heard before. Historian, investigator and storyteller David J. Pitkin spent 9 years interviewing across new England to present these tales of returned relatives, store ghosts, campus ghosts, spirits in old hotels and inns and modern restaurants, and, of course, haunted residences. Aiming not to scare you, but to draw you into profound thinking about the life that continues after your body dies, he continues his role of teacher. We must all pass through the state of being a ghost, he tells us. See whether or not you think he makes his case. Accompanied by 75 photos, his eighth book demonstrates how common are the appearances and antics of the departed, who have been experienced by the living for thousands of years. He often discovers who these unique personalities are and why they remain among us when something better still awaits them. Not that many of them are to be feared, as they are just continuing what they struggled with in life.

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 33
Meanwhile, Secret Service agents burst into Vice President Cheneys White House office. They carried him under his armsnearly lifting him off the groundand propelled him down the steps into the White House basement and through a long tunnel toward an underground bunker. Accounts of when this happened vary greatly, from 9:06 [New York Times, 9/16/01 (B), Telegraph, 12/16/01] to after 9:30. [CBS, 9/11/02, Washington Post, 1/27/02] Cheneys own account is vague and contradictory. [Meet the Press, 9/16/01] The one eyewitness account, by White House photographer David Bohrer, said it happened just after 9:00. [ABC, 9/14/02 (B)] Its easy to see why the White House would have wanted this event placed at a later time (after Bushs initial statement to the nation rather than after the second crash) to avoid the obvious question: if Cheney was immediately evacuated, why wasnt Bush?

The Photo-Op Goes On

After Card told Bush about the second plane and quickly left, the classroom was silent for about 30 seconds or so. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02] The children were about to take turns reading from a story called The Pet Goat. [AFP, 9/7/02] Bush picked up the book and began to read with the children. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02] In unison, the children read out loud, The PetGoat. Agirlgotapetgoat. Butthegoatdidsomethingsthat madethegirlsdadmad. Bush mostly listened, but occasionally asked the children a few questions to encourage them. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] At one point he said, Really good readers, whew! These must be sixthgraders! [Time, 9/12/01] Who was really in control? Certainly not Bush. In the back of the room, Press Secretary Ari Fleischer caught Bushs eye and held up a pad of paper for him to see, with DONT SAY ANYTHING YET written on it in big block letters. [Washington Times, 10/7/02] Some person or people had overruled the security who wanted Bush evacuated immediately, even as Vice President Cheney was taken from his White House office to a safe location. Bushs security overruled Bush on security matters later in the day on Air Force One, but who overruled them that morning?

When Did Bush Leave the Classroom?

Nearly every news account fails to mention when Bush left the classroom after being told America was under attack. Three mention 9:12 a.m. [New York Times, 9/16/01 (B), Telegraph, 12/16/01, Daily Mail, 9/8/02] Remaining in the classroom for approximately five to seven minutes is inexcusable, but the video of Bush in the classroom suggests he stayed longer than that. The video contains

several edits and ends before Bush leaves the room, so it also doesnt tell us exactly how long he stayed. One newspaper suggested he remained for eight or nine minutes sometime between 9:13 and 9:16, since Cards arrival is uncertain. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02] When Bush finally did leave, he didnt act like a man in a hurry. In fact, he was described as openly stretching out the moment. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 89] When the lesson was over, Bush said to the children: Hoo! These are great readers. Very impressive! Thank you all so much for showing me your reading skills. I bet they practice too. Dont you? Reading more than they watch TV? Anybody do that? Read more than you watch TV? [Hands go up] Oh thats great! Very good. Very important to practice! Thanks for having me. Very impressed. [Transcribed from Booker video, Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, pp. 89-90] Bush still continued to talk, advising the children to stay in school and be good citizens. [Tampa Tribune, 9/1/02, St. Petersburg Times, 9/8/02 (B)] One student asked Bush a question, and he gave a quick response on his education policy. [New York Post, 9/12/02] The only source to describe what happened next is Fighting Back by Bill Sammon. Publishers Weekly described Sammons book as an inside account of the Bush administrations reaction to 9-11 [and] a breathless, highly complimentary portrait of the president [showing] the great merit and unwavering moral vision of his inner circle. [Publishers Weekly, 10/15/02] Sammons conservative perspective makes his account of Bushs behavior at the end of the photo-op all the more surprising. Bush is described as smiling and chatting with the children as if he didnt have a care in the world and in the most relaxed manner imaginable. White House aide Gordon Johndroe, then came in as he usually does at the end of press conferences, and said, Thank you, press. If you could step out the door we came in, please. A reporter then asked, Mr. President, are you aware of the reports of the plane crash in New York? Is there anything, But Bush interrupted, and no doubt recalling his order, DONT SAY ANYTHING YET, Bush responded, Ill talk about it later. But still the president did not leave. He stepped forward and shook hands with [classroom teacher] Daniels, slipping his left hand behind her in another photo-op pose. He was taking his good old time. Bush lingered until the press was gone. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 90] Think about that: rather than rush out of the room at the first chance, Bush actually stayed until after all the dozens of reporters had left! Having just been told of a Pearl Harbortype attack on US soil, Bush was indeed openly stretching out the moment. But he still wasnt done. Bush then turned to principal Tose-Rigell, who was waiting to take him to the library for his speech on education. He explained to her about the terror attacks and why he had to leave. [Fighting Back: The War

on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 90] Finally, he went to an empty classroom next door where his staff was based. [ABC News, 9/11/02] Given that Bushs program was supposed to end at 9:20, he left the classroom only a couple of minutes earlier than planned, if even that. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/16/01]

Why Stay?
The reason given why Bush didnt leave as soon as Card told him the news is: Without all the facts at hand, George Bush had no intention of upsetting the schoolchildren who had come to read for him. [MSNBC, 10/29/02] Advisor Karl Rove said, The President thought for a second or two about getting up and walking out of the room. But the drill was coming to a close and he didnt want to alarm the children. [ABC, 9/11/02] This excuse is patently absurd, given the security risks and importance of Bush being informed and making decisions as Commander in Chief. Nor was the drill coming to a close: one drill had ended and another was about to beginit was a perfect time to simply say, Excuse me and leave the room. Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport is only 3½ miles away; in fact, Booker was chosen as the location for the photo-op partly because of its proximity to the airport. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/12/02] Hijackers could have crashed a plane into Bushs publicized location and his security would have been completely helpless to stop it. Remember, Bushs schedule had been announced on September 7 and two of the 9/11 hijackers came to Sarasota that same day. [White House, 9/7/01, Longboat Observer, 11/21/01, Washington Post, 1/27/02] Furthermore, the Secret Service was aware of the strange request for an interview a few hours earlier and the previous nights report of a person in town who had made violent threats against Bush. Indeed, a few days after 9/11, Sarasotas main newspaper reported, Sarasota barely skirted its own disaster. As it turns out, terrorists targeted the president and Air Force One on Tuesday, maybe even while they were on the ground in Sarasota and certainly not long after. The Secret Service learned of the threat just minutes after Bush left Booker Elementary. [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/16/01] Continues on Page 36

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 35 Bush Lingers On
Once he was out of the classroom, did Bush immediately leave Booker? No. He stayed in the adjacent room with his staff, calling Vice President Cheney and National Security Advisor Rice, and preparing a speech. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, St. Petersburg Times 9/8/02] Incredibly, even as uncertain information began to surface, suggesting that more planes had been hijacked (eventually 11 planes would be suspected) [CBS, 9/11/02], Bush was allowed to make his remarks at 9:30exactly the time and place stated on his advance schedule. [Federal News Service, 9/10/01, see the transcript of his speech here] Why hasnt Bushs security staff been criticized for their completely inexplicable decision to stay at the school? And why didnt Bushs concern for the children extend to not making them and the rest of the 200 or so people at the school terrorist targets? At 9:16, NORAD was notified that Flight 93 had been hijacked, and at 9:24 it was notified that Flight 77 had also been hijacked and was heading toward Washington (though, as discussed above, the hijacking was known long before this). [NORAD, 9/18/01] No media report has suggested that the possible shooting down of hijacked airplanes was discussed at this time, however. It appears the discussion was not broached until after 9:55. [Washington Post, 1/27/02, CBS, 9/11/02] At about 9:26, it was either FAA head Jane Garvey or FAA administrator Ben Sliney (and not Bush) who decided to halt all airplane takeoffs in the US. [Time, 9/14/01, USA Today, 8/13/02] Additionally, no evidence has appeared suggesting Bush had a role in ordering any fighters into the skies.

the ground in Sarasota [Sarasota HeraldTribune, 9/16/01] This only increases the strangeness that Bush wasnt immediately evacuated at 9:03 as some of his security had recommended. Bush spoke by telephone to Cheney as the motorcade raced to the airport. [St. Petersburg Times 9/8/02] Supposedly, during this call Bush issued an order to ground all flights within the country. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] The FAA did shut down the nationwide air traffic system at around 9:45. [MSNBC, 9/22/01, CNN, 9/12/01, New York Times, 9/12/01, Newsday, 9/10/02, Washington Post, 9/12/01] But other reports state that it was FAA administrator Ben Sliney who made the decision without consulting anyone. [USA Today, 8/13/02, USA Today, 8/13/02 (B)] For some time it was claimed that Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta had made the decision, but it was later revealed that Mineta didnt even know of the order until 15 minutes later. Apparently, FAA officials had begged [the reporter] to maintain the fiction. [Slate, 4/2/02] The idea that Bush made the decision is even less plausible. In fact, there is no evidence at all to suggest that Bush had by this point made even one decision relevant to his security or that of the country.

were still no fighters protecting it! An administration official claimed, The object seemed to be simply to get the President airborne and out of the way. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] But without fighter cover this makes little sense, because the sky was arguably more dangerous than the ground. At the time, there were still over 3,000 planes in the air over the US [USA Today, 8/13/02 (B)], including about half of the planes in the region of Florida where Bush was. [St. Petersburg Times, 9/7/02] Recall, too, that the Secret Service learned of a threat to Bush and Air Force One just minutes after Bush left Booker Elementary. Karl Rove, also on Air Force One, confirmed that a dangerous threat was known before the plane took off: They also made it clear they wanted to get us up quickly, and they wanted to get us to a high altitude, because there had been a specific threat made to Air Force One. A declaration that Air Force One was a target, and said in a way that they called it credible. [New Yorker, 10/1/01]

Shoot Down AuthorizedToo Late

Once he was airborne, Bush talked to Cheney again and Cheney recommended that Bush order our aircraft to shoot down these airliners that have been hijacked. [CBS, 9/11/02] I said, You bet, Bush later recalled. We had a little discussion, but not much. [Newsday, 9/23/01, USA Today, 9/16/01, Washington Post, 1/27/02] However, even though only Bush had the authority to order a passenger plane shot down [CNN, 10/26/99], the order was apparently given before Bush discussed it with Cheney. One flight commander recalled, After the Pentagon was hit, we were told there were more [airliners] coming. Not might be ; they were coming. A call from someone in the White House declared the Washington area a free-fire zone, meaning, according to one of the responding fighter pilots, we were given authority to use force, if the situation required it. [Aviation Week and Space Technology, 9/9/02] Extraordinary times can demand extraordinary measures, so having someone other than Bush give this order could be understandable. But Bush was available and talking to people like Cheney after 9:30 a.m. Around this time, officials feared that as many as 11 airliners had been hijacked [CBS, 9/11/02], so why werent Bush and Cheney even considering this course of action until about 10:00 a.m.? Was Bush being kept out of the loop in reality, or only in the media reports? Is the lateness of this discussion merely political spin to reduce speculation that Flight 93 had been shot down? Flight 93 was still in the air after the Bush authorization, and fighters were given orders to shoot it down if necessary. [ABC News, 9/11/02] NORAD knew at 9:16 a.m. that Flight 93 was hijacked [NORAD, 9/18/01], but supposedly fighters werent scrambled until minutes before it crashed at 10:06 a.m. Continued on Page 37

Air Force One Takes Off Without Fighter Escort

Air Force One took off at either 9:55 or 9:57 a.m. [CNN, 9/12/01, New York Times, 9/12/01, Telegraph, 12/16/01, CBS, 9/11/02, Washington Post, 9/12/01, Washington Post, 1/27/02, AP, 9/12/01] Communications Director Dan Bartlett remembered, It was like a rocket. For a good ten minutes, the plane was going almost straight up. [CBS, 9/11/02] But, incredibly, Air Force One took off without any military fighter protection. This defies all explanation. Recall that at 9:03 a.m., one of Bushs security people said, Were out of here. Can you get everyone ready? [Sarasota Herald-Tribune, 9/10/02] Certainly, long before Bush left the elementary school at 9:35 a.m., arrangements would have been made to get fighters to Sarasota as soon as possible. Not only would it have been advisable to protect Air Force One, but it would have been only sensible as another way to protect Bush on the ground from terrorist attack even before he left the school. In Florida, there were two bases said to have fighters on 24-hour alert, capable of getting airborne in approximately five minutes. Homestead Air Station, 185 miles from Sarasota, and Tyndall Air Station, 235 miles from Sarasota; both had the highest readiness status on 9/11. Presumably, as happened at other bases across the country, just after 9:03, base commanders throughout Florida would have immediately begun preparations to get their fighters ready. [Aviation Week and Space Technology, 6/3/02] Fighters left bases on the same alert status and traveled similar distances to reach Washington, DC, well before 10:00, so why were the fighters delayed in Florida? [Aviation Week and Space Technology, 9/9/02] Military planes should have been over Sarasota by the time Bush left Booker at 9:35 a.m. Yet, as will be described below, more than one hour after Air Force One took off, there

Finally, to the Airport

By 9:35, Bushs motorcade was ready to take him to the Sarasota airport where Air Force One was waiting. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] At 9:37, Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon. Bush was informed as his motorcade got near the airport. (Apparently Bush could be reached by phone in his limousine at this time.) [Washington Times, 10/8/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01] The motorcade arrived around 9:43 and pulled up close to Air Force One. Security conducted an extra-thorough search of all the baggage for the other passengers, delaying takeoff until 9:55. [St. Petersburg Times, 9/8/02 (B)] A year later, Chief of Staff Andrew Card recalled that, As we were heading to Air Force One [we] learned, what turned out to be a mistake, but we learned that the Air Force One package could in fact be a target. [MSNBC, 9/9/02] This echoes the report mentioned above that terrorists targeted the president and Air Force One maybe even while they were on


An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 36 Going Nowhere as Threats Increase
Shortly after takeoff, Cheney apparently informed Bush of a credible threat to Air Force One. [AP, 9/13/01 (D)] US Representative Adam Putnam had barely settled into his seat on Air Force One when he got the news that terrorists apparently had set their sights on the plane. [Orlando Sentinel, 9/14/01] The Secret Service had received an anonymous call: Air Force One is next. The caller allegedly knew the agencys code words relating to Air Force One procedures. Pilot Colonel Mark Tillman was told of the threat and he asked that an armed guard be stationed at the cockpit door. The Associated Press reported that the threat came within the same hour as the Pentagon crash (i.e., before 10:00 a.m., roughly when the plane took off). [AP, 9/13/01 (D)] Details suggest this threat was not the same as the earlier one, but its hard to know for sure. In his comments at Booker, Bush said he was immediately flying back to Washington, but soon after takeoff, he, Cheney and the Secret Service began arguing whether it was safe to fly back to the capital. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] Andrew Card told Bush, Weve got to let the dust settle before we go back. [St. Petersburg Times, 9/8/02] The plane apparently stayed over Sarasota until the argument was settled. Accounts differ, but until about 10:35 a.m. [CBS, 9/11/02 (B), Washington Post, 1/27/02], Air Force One appeared to be going nowhere. The journalists on board – all of whom were barred from communicating with their offices – sensed that the plane was flying in big, slow circles. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] Cheney apparently called Bush again at 10:32 a.m., and told him of another threat to Air Force One. Within minutes, the argument was over, and the plane turned away from Washington and flew to Louisiana instead. [Washington Post, 1/27/02] Bush recalled: I wanted to come back to Washington, but the circumstances were such that it was just impossible for the Secret Service or the national security team to clear the way for Air Force One to come back. [CBS, 9/11/02] Given that the rocket-like takeoff was due to a threat, this must have been another threat, possibly even a third threat. Around 10:55 a.m., there was yet another threat to Air Force One. The pilot, Colonel Mark Tillman, said he was warned that a suspect airliner was dead ahead. Coming out of Sarasota there was one call that said there was an airliner off our nose that they did not have contact with. Tillman took evasive action, pulling his plane even higher above normal traffic. [CBS, 9/11/02 (B)] Reporters on board noticed the rise in elevation. [Dallas Morning News, 8/28/02, Salon, 9/12/01] The report was apparently a false alarm, but it shows the folly of having Bush fly without a fighter escort.

of Eternal Love
On March 6, 2004, Thomas Pierce, his wife, JoAnn, and his daughter Lisa were on the water taxi that overturned in Baltimores Inner Harbor. He lost both of them that day. Pierces account of the accident and the letter to Lisa by one of the reservists that rescued her give the reader a grim understanding of what that day was like. But this is not a book about the accident this book is about the power of love. Love as we know it and understand it, and love that goes beyond our understanding. This is a book Pierce never intended to write but he felt compelled to share the things that carried him through this tragedy and all the signs that helped him move on with his life. It is truly a celebration of two lives that will go on forever. Once you have read this book you will find yourself passing it on to friends and family, so that they too can share the experience of the power of love.

She tried several times , but to no avail. However, 34 years later-he found her. The reunion was the most wonderful event both mother and son could only have dreamed of over those long, agonising years.

Were There Threats to Air Force One?

The threat or threats to Air Force One were announced on September 12, after mounting criticism that Bush was out of sight in Louisiana and Nebraska during most of the day and did not return to Washington until 10 hours after the attacks. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said there was real and credible information that the White House and Air Force One were targets. [White House, 9/12/01] On September 13, New York Times columnist William Safire wroteand Bushs political strategist Karl Rove confirmedthat there was an inside threat that may have broken the secret codes [showing a knowledge of presidential procedures]. [New York Times, 9/13/01] Had terrorists hacked their way into sensitive White House computers? Was there a mole in the White House? Continued on Page 38

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 37
No one knew exactly where the bogus story originated from, but what can be safely said is that it served the White Houses immediate purposes, even though it was completely untrue. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] What were those purposes? A well-informed, anonymous Washington official said, It did two things for [Cheney]. It reinforced his argument that the President should stay out of town, and it gave George W. an excellent reason for doing so. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] When Bush was asked in May 2002 why he had flown to two Air Force bases before returning to Washington, Bush said, I was trying to get out of harms way. [White House, 5/21/02] The most obviously bogus threatthe mole knowing secret codescame from Cheney in a pivotal moment in his argument with Bush over where Bush should go. But were the other threats, for instance, the one made before Air Force One even took off, or the airline suspected of crashing into Air Force One, also bogus? When Does the Fighter Escort Finally Arrive? Much like the time when Bush left the Booker classroom, the time when fighters finally reached Air Force One is rarely mentioned, and when it is, the facts are highly debatable. According to one account, around 10:00 a.m. Air Force One was joined by an escort of F-16 fighters from a base near Jacksonville, Florida. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] But one month later, it was reported that in Cheneys 10:32 phone call, he told Bush that it would take another 40 to 90 minutes [as late as noon] to get protective fighters up to escort Air Force One. [Washington Post, 1/27/02] Another account said, Air Force One headed toward Jacksonville [at 10:41] to meet jets scrambled to give the presidential jet its own air cover, but it isnt said when the plane actually met up with the fighters. [New York Times, 9/16/01 (B)] We know that when Air Force One took evasive action around 10:55, there was no fighter escort. NORAD commander Major General Larry Arnold later said, We scrambled available airplanes from Tyndall [note this is near Tallahassee, not Jacksonville, Florida] and then from Ellington in Houston, Texas, but he doesnt say when. [Code One Magazine, 1/02] In another account, the first two F-16s to arrive are piloted by Shane Brotherton and Randy Roberts, from the Texas Air National Guard, not from any Florida base. [CBS, 9/11/02] All thats known for sure is that by 11:30 there were six fighters protecting Air Force One. [Sarasota Magazine, 9/19/01] It would appear that fighters arrived some time between 11:00 and 11:30. These fighters were supposed to be on 24-hour alert, ready to get into the air in about five minutes. If we assume the fighters flew at a speed of 1,100

mph, the same speed Major Gen. Arnold said fighters used to reach New York City earlier in the day when traveling a comparable distance [MSNBC, 9/23/01 (C), Slate, 1/16/02], the fighters should have reached Sarasota in about 10 minutes. Yet they took around two hours to reach Air Force One from when they were likely first needed, shortly after 9:00. This clearly goes beyond mere incompetence, yet no newspaper article has ever raised the issue. Was Cheney able to prevent the fighters from reaching Air Force One, perhaps to convince Bush not to return to Washington? If so, why? Did Cheney assume (or know) that Bush was in no real danger? Like so many other questions surrounding 9/11, we do not know.

Barksdale Air Force Base

Air Force One landed at Barksdale Air Force base near Shreveport, Louisiana at about 11:45 a.m. [CBS, 9/11/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01, Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] The official reason for landing at Barksdale was that Bush felt it necessary to make a further statement, but it isnt unreasonable to assume that – as there was no agreement as to what the Presidents movements should be it was felt he might as well be on the ground as in the air. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, CBS, 9/11/02] Ironically, the landing came only a short time after Bushs plane was finally protected by fighters. There was quite a difference in the protection afforded Bush at Barksdale and what was in Sarasota. Bush was left unprotected at a known location in Sarasota for nearly 30 minutes. At Barksdale, a location that was at the time unknown, Congressman Dan Miller was amazed at the armored equipment and soldiers with automatic weapons that immediately surrounded the plane.

12/16/01] Bush was taken to a secret and secure place on the base. [Louisiana Life, Autumn 2002] Shortly after 12:30 p.m., Bush taped a short speech, which he wrote on a napkin. [Louisiana Life, Autumn 2002, Salon, 9/12/01, Washington Times, 10/8/02] The tape was broadcast on television at around 1:20 p.m. [Salon 9/11/01] He also spent the next hour and a half talking on the phone, again arguing with Cheney and others over where he should go next. [Sarasota Magazine, 11/01] The Secret Service felt the situation in Washington was still unsafe. [CBS, 9/11/02] Bush told Karl Rove: I want to go back home as soon as possible. Rove answered: Our people are saying its unstable still. [AP, 9/13/01 (D)] Bush was told he could get to the US Strategic Command center in Offutt, Nebraska, quicker than he could fly to Washington, so he agreed to go to Nebraska. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, AP, 9/13/01 (D)] Just after 1:00 p.m., Bush supposedly received an intelligence report from the base commander that a high-speed object was headed for his ranch in Crawford, Texas. It turned out to be another false alarm. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p.117] This may well be another bogus report designed to explain why Bush didnt return to Washington at this time, since US airspace was declared clear except for some military and emergency flights at 12:16 p.m. [USA Today, 8/12/02 (C)] By 12:30, the FAA reported that only about 50 of these flights were still flying in US airspace, and none were reporting problems [CNN, 9/12/01, New York Times, 9/12/01], so how could an unknown plane have been headed toward Bushs ranch 30 minutes after that?

Snippets from the Trenches

ABOUT THIS BOOK : The really extraordinary thing about this book is that it tells the story of how one mother embarked on her feverish course of involvement in the AIDS community, in large part to help herself come to terms with the possibility of her son's death. But all that work really doesn't prepare her. She becomes incredibly intimate with a series of strangers, yet she and her son have more and more trouble talking about HIS illness, which is the reason she is doing all this in the first place. She becomes indispensable at the bedsides of countless other people, but when Gary is dying, she still feels helpless, disconnected and as if she'd never set foot in an AIDS hospital room. What is moving about this book is the fact that all this preparation doesn't prepare, because NOTHING can prepare her. Susan Choi, Pulitzer Prize Finalist, American Woman
Freda Wagman is one of the most sincere and caring persons that I have had the pleasure of interviewing. Freda brings with her honesty, integrity, compassion and love to all those who lives she has touched, especially her late son Gary. - Rob McConnell Host of The X Zone Radio & TV Show This book will make you shake your head, laugh, cry and ponder over what has happened during the last 20 years of the AIDS crisis. It is a story of a mother who has to come to terms not only with her son's illness but her fierce protection of his feelings. Beautifully written, you learn how fragile and random life can be. The strength that grows when you open your heart and mind helps us heal from losses life deals all of us. Revealed is a generous soul who has her prized possession taken from her and can only deal with it by giving back to others around her. - Peter Waterloo, San Francisco I was so very overwhelmed by this compelling narrative of the scourge, AIDS epidemic. I was reminded of the Bubonic Plague and what people suffered in those horrific years. What a wonderful and empathetic soul the author is and so giving to others in desperate need of love and care. The account of the saddening travails of her own son, Gary, brought me to tears. Perhaps only a mother can feel and understand what those people were (and are) going through and what looms in their futures. This is truly an important true story. We have much to learn from Ms. Wagman's wide experiences with a variety of young people who had one tragic thing in common -- a war with AIDS. - Bea and Woody, Michigan

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 38 Offutt Air Force Base
Air Force One left Barksdale for Offutt Air Force Base around 1:30 p.m. [CBS, 9/11/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01, Salon, 9/11/01, Washington Post, 9/11/01, MSNBC, 9/22/01, CNN, 9/12/01] The Air Force One entourage was pared down to a few essential staffers such as Ari Fleischer, Andrew Card, Karl Rove, Dan Bartlett, and Gordon Johndroe [White House, 9/11/01], plus about five reporters. [AP, 9/12/01 (D)] During the flight, Bush remained in continuous contact with the White House Situation Room and Vice President Cheney. [CNN, 9/11/01 (B)] Air Force One landed at Offutt shortly before 3:00 p.m. [Washington Post, 9/11/01] At 3:06, Bush passed through security to the US Strategic Command Underground Command Center [Salon, 9/11/01, CBS, 9/11/02] and was taken into an underground bunker designed to withstand a nuclear blast. [Telegraph, 12/16/01] There, he held a teleconference call with Vice President Cheney, National Security Advisor Rice, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, CIA Director Tenet, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, and others. [ABC News, 9/11/02, Telegraph, 12/16/01, Washington Times, 10/8/02] The meeting lasted about an hour. [Telegraph, 12/16/01, Salon, 9/11/01, AP, 8/19/02] Rice recalled that during the meeting, Tenet told Bush, Sir, I believe its al-Qaeda. Were doing the assessment but it looks like, it feels like, it smells like al-Qaeda. [CBS, 9/11/02] By this time, people were anticipating and expecting another reassuring public statement from Bush. [Orlando Sentinel, 9/12/01] The White House staff was preparing for Bush to address the nation from the Offutt bunker, but Bush decided instead to return to Washington. [CBS, 9/11/02] As a side note, Warren Buffett, one of the richest people in the world, was hosting an unpublicized charity benefit inside the high security Offutt military base at 8:00 a.m. With him were business leaders and several executives from the World Trade Center, including Anne Tatlock of Fiduciary Trust Co. International, who likely would have died had it not been for the meeting. [San Francisco Business Times, 2/1/02] They watched a lot of the television coverage that morning, but its unknown if any of these people were still at Offutt by the time Bush arrived in the afternoon.

White House [Salon 9/11/01], arriving shortly before 7:00 p.m. [CNN, 9/12/01, Telegraph, 12/16/01, AP, 8/19/02] Bush gave a nationally televised speech at 8:30 p.m. [CNN, 9/12/01, White House, 9/11/01], speaking for about five minutes. [US News, 9/14/01] In what would later be called the Bush Doctrine, he stated, We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them. [Washington Post, 1/27/02] Around 9:00 p.m., Bush met with his full National Security Council, followed roughly half an hour later by a meeting with a smaller group of key advisors. Bush and his advisors had already decided bin Laden was behind the attacks. CIA Director Tenet told Bush that al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan were essentially one and the same. [Washington Post, 1/27/02] Before going to sleep around 11:30 p.m., Bush wrote in his diary, The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today. We think its Osama bin Laden. [Washington Post, 1/27/02]

Rewriting History
The many accounts of what happened to Bush on 9/11 are riddled with disinformation of false threats, omitted details, fudged timing, and more. But around September 11, 2002, the heavily publicized first anniversary of the attacks, there was an obvious attempt to further rewrite the story. Chief of Staff Andrew Card claimed that after he told Bush about the second World Trade Center crash, it was only a matter of seconds before Bush excused himself very politely to the teacher and to the students, and he left the classroom. Card also stated that Bush quickly excused himself to a holding room. [San Francisco Chronicle, 9/11/02] In a different account, Card said, Not that many seconds later the president excused himself from the classroom. [MSNBC, 9/9/02] The Booker school video shows these statements are lies unless a matter of seconds means over 700 seconds! Sandra Kay Daniels, the teacher whose second-grade classroom Bush visited on 9/11, told the Los Angeles Times that after Card informed Bush of the second crash, Bush got up and left. He said, Ms. Daniels, I have to leave

now. Looking at his face, you knew something was wrong. I said a little prayer for him. He shook my hand and left. Daniels also said, I knew something was up when President Bush didnt pick up the book and participate in the lesson. [Los Angeles Times, 9/11/02] However, the Booker video clearly shows that Bush did follow along after being told of the second plane. [Video: Center for Cooperative Research, Buzzflash, Global Free Press, The Emperors New Clothes, or Liberty DYNU] The New York Post reported, A federal agent rushed into the room to inform the president of the United States. President Bush had been presiding over [Danielss] reading class last 9/11, when a Secret Service agent interrupted the lesson and asked, Where can we get to a television? Daniels then claimed that Bush left the class even before the second crash: The president bolted right out of here and told me: Take over. When the second crash occurred, she claims her students were watching TV in a nearby media room. [New York Post, 9/12/02] This article is riddled with errors. As mentioned previously, the Secret Service was already watching the second plane crash live on television in an adjacent room at 9:03long before this supposedly happened. Nor did Bush bolt out of the room; in fact, even pro-Bush author Bill Sammon called Bush the dawdler in chief for taking so long to leave the room. [Fighting Back: The War on TerrorismFrom Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, p. 90] Bush himself took part in the historical revisionism. In an extensive video interview shown on CBSs 60 Minutes, he again repeated his bizarre belief that he was watching television when the first crash took place. CBS also revived the false story that terrorists had broken Air Force Ones secret codes, even though it was CBS who debunked that same story nearly a year earlier.

An Interesting Day: President Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11

Continued from Page 40 Vital Questions Remain Unanswered
Needless to say, in the anniversary hoopla, Bush and other leaders were described as resolute,brave,strong, and so forth. Even the minor level of media criticism just after 9/11 that led to several reporters losing their jobs was absent. The topic of Bushs behavior on 9/11 has been barely mentioned in the media since. There are many questions that deserve answers. So many pieces of the puzzle do not fit. Simply by reading the mainstream media reports, we can see that mere incompetence doesnt explain what happened to Bush on that day. For instance, it makes no sense that Bush would listen to a story about a goat long after being told the US was under attack, and even after the Secret Service decided to immediately evacuate him from the school. It defies explanation that Air Force Ones fighter escort took two hours to appear. And it is mindboggling that there are seven different versions of how Bush learned about the first crash. Its doubtful that the Independent Commission investigation will look critically at what Bush did on 9/11 and why he did it. Despite the contradictory reports, no one in the mainstream media has yet demanded clarification of the many obvious inconsistencies and problems of the official version. Anyone even asking questions has been quickly insulted as anti-American, accused of bashing the president in a time of war, or branded a conspiracy nut. Only a few relatives of the 9/11 attacks have been able to raise these issues publicly. For instance, Kristen Breitweiser told Phil Donahue: It was clear that we were under attack. Why didnt the Secret Service whisk [Bush] out of that school? [H]e is the commander-in-chief of the United States of America, our country was clearly under attack, it was after the second building was hit. I want to know why he sat there for 25 minutes. [Donahue, 8/13/02] But so far, few have listened to their concerns. Because the media has failed in its role to ask these questions, much less attempt to answer them, it is now the responsibility of ordinary Americansof you, of me, and the people we knowto gather the information, look for answers, and sound the alarm.

Air Force One on 9/11: Keep Bush safe

Hamilton Spectator
WASHINGTON For Mark Tillman, Air Force One pilot, neither doomsday training nor years of experience prepared him for Sept. 11, 2001. There are all kinds of plans to keep the president safe, emergency action plans, in the event of nuclear attack, Tillman says. Pretty much any major military attack, I knew exactly what do with the president and where to take him to keep him safe. This was different. This was an attack from within. We had the president who didnt want to follow our plans for a nuclear attack, which is hide him, keep him safe and allow continuity of government. As the 10th anniversary of the largest terrorist attack on U.S. soil approaches, Tillman, 53, who retired as a colonel from the Air Force in 2009, agreed to talk about the chaotic hours that followed the attacks, the worry that Air Force One was being stalked by terrorists, the flight back to Washington and the sight of the smoldering Pentagon. The attacks in New York and Washington killed nearly 3,000 people and set the nation on a path to war. Mission No. 3,480 appeared simple enough on paper. Depart Andrews Air Force Base near Washington at 1:15 p.m. EDT on Sept. 10, according to the official flight itinerary. There would be stops in Jacksonville and Sarasota, Fla., where President George W. Bush planned to showcase educational initiatives. Fly back to Andrews the afternoon of Sept. 11. That round trip did occurbut with previously unscheduled stops at military bases in Louisiana and Nebraska, and a return to a Washington and a world that had changed forever. As a young man, Tillman didnt consider an Air Force career, much less aspire to become the presidents personal pilot. A native of South Florida, he thought of becoming a doctor and chose Tulane University for premed. He took a seat in class next to a student in an Air Force uniform. The Reserve Officer Training Candidate told Tillman that ROTC could help pay his tuition. Knowing his parents had only enough money for his first semester, Tillman signed up. Engineering appealed to him more than medicine, and his first Air Force assignment was in foreign intelligence, working on the propulsion systems of Soviet missiles. Flying seemed like fun, too, and Tillman soon found himself in flight school. He wanted to pilot big cargo planes to see the world. A later assignmentthe 89th Airlift Wingpromised more global travel. Based at Andrews, it flies VIPs, senators, congressmen, the vice president, first lady and the president. By 2001, Tillman had reached the pinnacle: He had become the presidents principal pilot. The morning of Sept. 11, Tillman arrived at Sarasota airport a few hours before the scheduled return to Washington. Threats against Air Force One were routine, he says.

Theyre mostly disgruntled folks making false claims. All of them are checked out. In this case, there was nothing like that, he says. On Sept. 11, literally going up to the plane, everything was normal. The first reports of trouble in New York came from airmen watching local television and seeing images of the north tower of the World Trade Center ablaze. At that point, we just assumed it was operator error because it was clear, Tillman says. You can see clear skies, you can see a million miles. There was no doubt about an attack when terrorists smashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the south tower. Tillman watched on television as White House chief of staff Andrew Card relayed the news to Bush, who was reading My Pet Goat with schoolchildren. America is under attack, Card told the president. Tillman went through his checklist as Air Force One, a Boeing 747 with its familiar robins-egg blue belly, idled on the runway at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, waiting for the president to board: Double-check the identity of everybody getting on board. Post an armed Air Force security officer outside the cockpit. Keep the president safe. The jet roared down the runway, a rather steep takeoff, Tillman recalls. He heard from air controllers in Gainesville that an unidentified plane was descending toward them. He asked for fighter jets to protect the plane. I didnt know the capabilities of the terrorists, so just err to the worst case, Tillman says. It wouldnt be bad to have fighter support in the event that airliners were tracking us. Maybe that airliner was coming to crash into us over Sarasota, saw us take off and was coming after us. In reality, it was just like many of the threats that day. It was not an actual threat. It was an airliner whose transponder had failed. TV monitors on the plane showed the north tower collapse at 10:28 a.m. Everyone we saw was shaken and aghast, noted the pool report filed by USA Todays Judy Keen and Times Jay Carney, now the White House press secretary. In the cabin, reporters and staffers noticed a fighter jet flying off the right wing of Air Force One at 11:29 a.m., according to the pool report. Staffers were asked to keep their cellphones turned off because the signal might allow terrorists to home in on Air Force One. In the cockpit, Tillman received a chilling message. Air Force One was being targeted. We get out over the Gulf of Mexico, and the vice president advises the plane that Angel is next, Tillman says. Angel at the time was the classified call sign of Air Force One. We asked for fighter support as well as AWACs, a radar plane overhead to keep watch on any type of threats coming at us. Bush wanted to return to Washington. Tillmans training, instinct and advice from White House aides was to stay away until the capital had been secured. There were airliners unaccounted for, and terrorists had seized San Francisco-bound United Airlines Flight 93 after takeoff from Newark, N.J., apparently intending to attack the city.

1 in 7: U.S. Staged 9/11 Attacks

One in seven believe U.S. government staged the 9/11 attacks in conspiracy
By Alanah Eriksen
One in seven people are convinced that the U.S. government was involved in a conspiracy to stage the September 11 attacks which killed nearly 3,000 people. A survey, which interviewed 1,000 people in the UK and the same number in the U.S., found that 14 per cent of Britons 15 per cent of Americans think the past administration was involved in the tragedy. They were asked: 'It is generally accepted that these attacks The belief that there was a conspiracy was more common among younger people, with a quarter (24 per cent) of 16 to 24-year-olds subscribing to the theory. The survey was carried out for a BBC documentary which examines why so many people believe there is a darker truth behind the attacks. The survey was carried out by Gfk NOP as part of a BBC Two programme, The Conspiracy Files - Ten Years On. Telephone polls in the UK and the US were carried out last month. American radio host and actor Alex Jones is a vocal advocate about the conspiracy theories. BBC Radio 2 quoted him as saying this morning: 'Private, corporate, world networks working in US, British, Israeli intelligence - all three groups - have been found to have fingerprints but the main driver was rogue networks at the top of the US Government. 'The Government admits they've staged events before. The official story doesn't add up.' The view is taken despite a series of official inquiries which have found no evidence to support the claims.

fire-proofing. About 10,000 gallons of jet fuel drenched the towers, starting the fires. Temperatures of up to 1,000C caused the floors to sag and the perimeter columns to bend, causing the sounds of explosions. Controlled demolition is carried out from the bottom floors whereas this collapse started at the top. 3. How could an amateur pilot fly a commercial plane in a complicated maneuver, crash it into the Pentagon, 78 minutes after the first report of a possible hijack and leave no trace? What the conspiracists say: The aircraft was not under the control of al-Qaeda but the Pentagon itself. Official reports say: There is a large amount of video and still photography showing the plane wreckage and evidence of its flight path, such as broken lamp posts. 4. Why was the United Airlines flight 93 crash site at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, so small and why was the aircraft debris not visible? What the conspiracists say: The plane was shot down by a missile and disintegrated in mid air, scattering the wreckage over a large area. Official reports say: There are clear photographs showing aircraft wreckage and the cockpit voice recorder proved passengers had revolted and the hijackers had deliberately crashed the plane. Another theory was based on a quote from the local coroner, Wally Miller, who said he stopped being a coroner after about 20 minutes because there were no bodies. But he

also said he quickly realised it was a plane crash and there would have to be a large funeral service for the many victims. 5. How could the World Trade Centre 7 building, which was not hit by a plane, collapse so quickly (2.25 seconds) and symmetrically, when no other steel-framed skyscraper has collapsed because of fire? What the conspiracists say: The building was destroyed by a controlled demolition using both explosives and incendiaries. Owner, Larry Silverstein, was heard saying 'pull it' in a TV interview but he was talking about pulling firefighters back. Some scientists examined four dust samples from Ground Zero and claim to have found thermite, a material which reacts when heated up, and that had been explosives rigged inside. Official reports say: The building collapsed because of uncontrolled fires, started by the collapse of the nearby North Tower, which burnt for seven hours. The mains water feeding the emergency sprinkler system was severed. The thermitic material is a type of primer paint. SOURCE: BBC


1. Why did the world's most powerful airforce fail to intercept any of the hijacked planes? What the conspiracists say: The US Vice President Dick Cheney ordered the military to stand down and not intercept the planes. Official reports say: The transponder, which provides the exact location of the plane, had been turned off or changed. There was a lack of communication between the civilian air traffic control (FAA) and the military and the military's equipment was outdated, designed to look out over the ocean to deal with a Cold War threat. 2. Why did the Twin Towers collapse so quickly, imploding without damaging surrounding buildings, after short fires on a few floors? What the conspiracists say: The Twin Towers were destroyed by controlled demolitions. Official reports say: The planes severed and damaged support columns and dislodged

9/11 1st Responders Left Out of 10th Ann.

9/11 first responders left out of 10th-anniversary event
Yahhoo News
President Obama will be there. So will former president George W. Bush and former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani. And, of course, the current mayor, Michael Bloomberg, will attend. But Sept. 11 first responders, the emergency workers who helped with the rescue and recovery efforts 10 years ago, will be denied entry to the 9/11 National Memorial on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. The 90,000 or so firefighters, police officers, and civilian volunteers who rushed toward the burning twin towers are not invited to the ceremonies on Sept. 11. Mayor Bloomberg confirmed that the day would be reserved for victims' families. "Family members only will be allowed to walk onto the plaza, look at their loved ones' names, look down into the voids," he said, referring to the reflecting pools in the footprints of the two towers. Bloomberg added, "The first day, it's reserved for those family members who lost somebody on 9/11." And, in fact, first responders have never been officially invited to the events. But that doesn't make it right, says John Feal, founder of an advocacy group for first responders, many of whom are now battling cancer and other diseases. Feal, a first responder himself, told CNN, "The best of the best that this country offered 10 years ago are being neglected and denied their rightful place." In fact, as construction of the 9/11 National Memorial continues, passes are required for those who wish to visit the site. The passes, which are free, are for a specified date and time. When the online reservation system opened, the 5,000 passes for the opening date to the public, Sept. 12, were snapped up within an hour. Since then, the memorial foundation has made more slots available.[]

9/11 firefighters have higher cancer risk: study

Male firefighters who were exposed to toxic dust and smoke from the 9/11 attacks on New York's World Trade Center have a 19 percent higher risk of getting cancer of all kinds than colleagues who were not exposed, U.S. researchers said on Thursday. The study is the first to look at cancer rates among the all of the exposed firefighters, and the findings may help pave the way for federal health benefits for rescue workers now suffering from cancer nearly a decade after the attacks. "This study clearly shows World Trade Center exposure in these firefighters led to an increase in cancer," said Dr. David Prezant of the Fire Department of the City of New York, whose study was published in The Lancet medical journal.

Studies so far have not found an increased risk of lung cancer, which takes many years to develop, and this study was no exception, finding no increased risk of lung cancer for exposed firefighters versus those not exposed. Firefighters working in the rubble of the World Trade Center after two planes hit its twin towers on September 11, 2001, were exposed to a several known cancer-causing agents, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls and dioxins. Prior studies have shown increased rates of post traumatic stress disorder, asthma and other respiratory illnesses among rescue workers. To date, only a handful of smaller studies have shown increased rates of cancer, which can take five to 20 years to develop. In July, a report released by Dr. John Howard, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, concluded that there was not yet enough evidence to support a link between the 9/11 attacks and cancer. Without that evidence, firefighters and other rescue workers can not receive payments for cancer treatments under the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which covers illnesses like asthma and other respiratory diseases, but not cancer. Prezant told reporters he was not sure whether his report would be enough to make the case for federal health benefits for firefighters who developed cancer after the 9/11 attacks, but said Dr. Howard, who is tasked with making the decision, is aware of his study.

Prezant said the study had several strengths, including the fact that it looked at nearly 10,000 male firefighters. The team only looked at cancers that developed in the first seven years after the World Trade Center attacks, comparing rates among exposed and non-exposed firefighters. And they made several adjustments to the overall groups to exclude information that might skew the results. For example, they excluded data on 576 firefighters who were over age 60 on September 11, 2001, because the small number of men in that age group would have made the results statistically unstable. They also excluded data

on 32 women, 13 Asians and 8 native Americans for the same reason. And they excluded data on 85 men who had a prior cancer diagnosis. After adjusting for these factors, they found the exposed firefighters had a 19 percent higher rate of having any type of cancer. "This shows an increase in all cancers," Prezant said, adding the study was not designed to show increases in a particular type of cancer. The study did not look at the health impacts on other types of rescue workers, which will be covered in a separate study. Dr James Melius of the New York State Laborers' Health Fund said the study supports addition of cancer to other federally funded medical disorders offered to 9/11 rescue workers. Waiting until definitive studies have been completed "would be unfair and would pose a hardship for workers who willingly risked their health by responding without hesitation to the WTC crisis," he said. For firefighters and others who were exposed and have not yet developed cancer, Prezant advised lifestyle changes that can cut cancer risk -- quitting smoking, limiting alcohol use, getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight. And he recommends regular cancer screening tests. "For those who were down there and do not have cancer, this is not an epidemic, but it is an increased risk," Melius said. "So the most important thing to do is enroll in an active cancer prevention and screening program."[]

[] after the Secret Service decided to immediately evacuate him from the school. It defies explanation that Air Force Ones fighter escort took two hours to appear. And it is mindboggling that there are seven different versions of how Bush learned about the first crash. Its doubtful that the Independent Commission investigation will look critically at what Bush did on 9/11 and why he did it. Despite the contradictory reports, no one in the mainstream media has yet demanded clarification of the many obvious inconsistencies and problems of the official version. Anyone even asking questions has been quickly insulted as anti-American, accused of bashing the president in a time of war, or branded a conspiracy nut. Only a few relatives of the 9/11 attacks have been able to raise these issues publicly. For instance, Kristen Breitweiser told Phil Donahue: It was clear that we were under attack. Why didnt the Secret Service whisk [Bush] out of that school? [H]e is the commander-in-chief of the United States of America, our country was clearly under attack, it was after the second building was hit. I want to know why he sat there for 25 minutes. [Donahue, 8/13/02] But so far, few have listened to their concerns.[]

Continued from Page 41 Vital Questions Remain Unanswered

Needless to say, in the anniversary hoopla, Bush and other leaders were described as resolute,brave,strong, and so forth. Even the minor level of media criticism just after 9/11 that led to several reporters losing their jobs was absent. The topic of Bushs behavior on 9/11 has been barely mentioned in the media since. There are many questions that deserve answers. So many pieces of the puzzle do not fit. Simply by reading the mainstream media reports, we can see that mere incompetence doesnt explain what happened to Bush on that day. For instance, it makes no sense that Bush would listen to a story about a goat long after being told the US was under attack, and even

Ascension Accessing the Fifth Dimension (The Secret Truth About 2012 and Beyond) by Elizabeth Joyce
We know scientifically that there are Eleven Dimensions, (and perhaps Twelve) universe quirks and black holes within our Universe. To break this down, there are seven levels to each dimension, and the soul must pass through each and every level before crossing over to the next dimension. Sometimes the levels overlap. Think of a Solar and Lunar eclipse. The Solar eclipse begins a new stage and the Lunar eclipse completes and finalizes the last stage. The Solar eclipse always occurs before the Lunar eclipse closes up and up and finally seals the last stage. This is Natural Law. The sense and awe of our great universe never ceases to amaze and humble us, especially those involved with energetic healing. Why do the words the end of the world as we know it have to be negative? They dont! We are all on the brink of a great discovery as well as seeing the impossible become possible. Humanity has been living in the Third Dimension until the 1960s, when we began to enter the Fourth Dimension, and this is not considered a long time. We are infants with all of this energy. The planet is continuing its process of turning inside out as it strives to align with a higher vibration or with new ways of living and being within a very new vision of reality. We have a bit more than four years to prepare ourselves for the coming energy changes, which have already begun. Many of us are downloading Fourth and Fifth Dimension energies on a daily basis. Whatever existed in realities of the past, (Third Dimension energies) or within a lower vibrating dimension are becoming merely an illusion now and many of us are in fear believing that there is very little left to hold onto. In the past millennium we imagined a higher vibrating world or reality for ourselves, and this was called an illusion at that time. (An illusion about love, cooperation, spontaneous healing and helping each other within the spirit of oneness.) Now, the illusion is what is remaining in the old world, or the old three dimensional ways of living and being, the old structures, and the old systems of survival (war, money games, starvation, illness, and a fight for ruler-ship). There is nothing left for these actions to adhere to and from now on, they will only exist within our imaginations or memories. As we progress further and further into the higher realms, we have less and less of the old world to hold onto; the world as we know it. This can create a feeling of falling down a deep hole with nothing to grasp onto and no apparent anchor. We may feel as though there is nothing surrounding us now which feels remotely right or good, or even perhaps that we are existing in a vacuum all by ourselves, like some kind of vortex of emptiness and detachment with no apparent connections to much of anything else. The vibrations are changing quickly, and with that experience we have chaos; destruction before reconstruction. God and The Divine are about to lift us up into a new world of splendor! Everyone has the ability to become transformed and carry the new frequencies within themselves. They can become natural healers, manifest their desires, and bring unconditional love to everyone they come in contact with, but eyes are blind. It is only those who choose to open their eyes and perhaps are blinded by what they see that will move along with the tides of change, and survive. I can assure you, everything is right on track with our spiritual evolutionary process. All is right where in needs to be for this phase of the amazing ascension process we have chosen to be born into, undertake, and move mankind forward. So where will you be on December 24, 2012? Right where you need to be! And not with fear, hiding or a sense of helplessness, but rather with tools for your growth as well as to reach out and help others. This focus on the December date is an illusion at best, and New Age mumbo-jumbo and spiritual hype at best. This is what is occurring now in 2009. As the Ascension process involves dying within while we are alive, we are now fully residing in a higher dimension, as many of us have completed our journey through that tunnel of death and onto the other side of this current energy phase. Many are finding themselves re-connecting with friends and loved ones and re-establishing connections. We are able to find some kind of shore or anchor to hold onto while we seemingly exist in the emptiness. The new leaders and teachers are embracing the entire planet in Oneness. From now until the latter part of 2012, many prophecies are going to be fulfilled, as the planet enters into the final three and one-half years of mans self-rule on the Earth. As these events unfold many people will increasingly become aware of the Divine Energies and desire to begin their ascension into the higher vibration levels. The key to survival as we enter into the new dimension is to rise above it, access the higher energies, and walk the planet, impervious to the events occurring, while healing others and welcoming in the Unity of All The Golden Age.

By Dr. William A. Gaspar & Dr. Jos A. Jaramillo

The ancient Mayans were an incredible civilization that invented a remarkably accurate calendar forewarning of coming earth changes. Did the Mayans, Egyptians and other ancient cultures know about sacred sciences that tied their astronomies and mythologies to the natural rhythms of the Earth? Doctors William Gaspar and Jos Jaramillo have written an earth-shattering book about this ancient mystery, and what it means to human survival. The authors applied their unique knowledge of astronomy, sacred geometry, Ice Age cycles, spirituality and Masonic secrets to provide an exact road map and to ponder whether the 2012 Galactic Alignment with the Winter Solstice Sun could cause severe weather changes. Who taught the ancients their wisdom and could they have predicted global warming, major sunspot eruptions and an exact date for an axis shift? We are indeed all part of The World Tree and wonder what the near future will hold for us.
Meet the Authors : Dr. William A. Gaspar is an internist who has been a guest on the Art Bell Show, Laura Lee, The X A. Jaramillo wrote the book The Mayan Calendar: The Holistic Book of Knowledge, and directed the films Between 2 Worlds and The Alignment Within. They live in New Mexico and California.
