Why Question the Official 9/11 Story: Part Four

There are other details that need to be cleared up. The report says that two of the hijkackers, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar, landed in Los Angeles and eventually made their way to San Diego, where they happened to be locate in an apartment on Mt. Ada Road. It adds that there are no people suspected of helping the hijackers. By comparing the report with an FBI timeline that was later released, it becomes clear that they went directly to the apartment after arriving in the US and tht the apartment was owned by Omar al-Bayoumi ,an employee of a Saudi contractor. In the official story, they ran into Bayoumi in a restaurant some time after coming to San Diego. Now it looks like there was at least a support network of one. The misleading words in the report are probably excusable as the writers wanted to minimize the hijackers ties with Saudi Arabia, America’s close ally. Bayoumi entered the US in 1996 as a student and was on the payroll of a Saudi aviation contractor, receiving $2,800 a month, but there is no evidence he did any work for the firm. In fact, he worked for Dalla Avco, which is tgied to the Saudi Defense ministry, which is run by Prince Bandar’s father, Prince Sultan. Bandar’s wife, it will be recalled, was sending cashiers checks from Riggs Bank to a woman who endorsed many of them to Bayoumi’s wife. After he returned to Saudi Arabia, 9/11 Commission Executive Director Philip Zelikow flew there to interview him.

Two aluminum planes crashed into the World Trade Towers and disappeared without a trace. Maybe this was possible, but someone in government should have offered a good scientific explanation.
On October 24, 2000, the Pentagon simulated a Boeing 757 crashing into that building in an operation called MASCAL.. Yet Condoleezza Rich claimed no one had ever considered such a possibility.
Two months before 9/11, George W. Bush pulled out of a Geno hotel because Al Qaeda was known to be targeting high rise hotels. He was attending a conference of industrialized nations. Later, Condi Rice said no one ever thought they would crash a plane into a building.
After the attack, FEMA spokesman Thomas Kennedy told Dan Rather that the National Urban Search and Rescue Team arrived in New York City on the evening of Monday, September 10, and went to work the next morning. He must have misspoken.
One of the oddities of 9/11 was that someone gave New York police commissioner Bernard Kerick Mohammed Atta’s virtually undamaged passport. It was found a few hours after the crashes in the debris. It was found two blocks from the fireball. Much later, it was reported that it was the passport of Satam al Suqami, not Atta. However, Atta left a car full of incriminating evidence at the Portland International Airport. At the same time, intelligence people talked about finding flight maps in Arabic. Later it turned out that such maps are only printed in English. It is hard to understand the FBI claim that it established the identities of the hijackers by using DNA found at Shanksville, the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
The FBI released the text of Atta’s written advice to his colleagues. He told them to mention their families in their final prayer to Allah, something no Muslim would do. He also told them to say the Fajr, the first prayer of the day and then wrote it out for them, as though they would not know it!

The FBI quickly provided a full list of the hijackers, but eight months later it admitted it had no solid evidence tying those men to the crime. There were no Arab names on the flight manifests, and it eventually developed that at least three of the named criminals are still alive. ( Eight people in Saudi Arabia and Egypt said the names and pictures provided were of them.)( No revised list of hijackers has been issued. The government has released no security tape showing any of the named hijackers boarding a plane. Later, Robert Mueller said the FBI said lacked solid evidence linking the 19 to the crime. Their names do not appear on pathologists’ reports.

The body of a female flight attendant was found on a Manhattan street with her hands bound.
The BBC and Daily Telegraph have turned up as still alive four of the nineteen people identified by the FBI as hijackers.
The steel from the WTC was removed before it could be carefully studied and shipped to Asia or sold to scrap dealers. This was crime scene evidence that should have been preserved for a reasonable time. FEMA reported that some of the steel was badly corroded by sulfidation, which means explosives were probably involved. The New York Times said that this “perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation”
Stratesec ( then Securacom) controlled security at the WTC. From 1993 to 2000, when it installed all sorts of new security equipment, Marvin Bush was on its board of directors, as was Bush’s cousin William Walker III. From 1999 to January 2002, cousin Wirt Walker III was CEO. On September 8-9, 2001 there was a 36 hour period when there was no electricity in the South Tower. No cameras would have been working. Cabling was being upgraded . The Monday after the attack, it was announced that security tapes and maintenance logs had been lost.

Russ Wittenberger, who has flown the planes used on 9/11 said: “I don't believe it's possible for... a so-called terrorist to train on a 172, then jump in a cockpit of a 757-767 class cockpit, and vertical navigate the aircraft, lateral navigate the aircraft, and fly the airplane at speeds exceeding it's design limit speed by well over 100 knots, make high-speed high-banked turns,.. pulling probably 5, 6, 7 G's... I couldn't do it and I'm absolutely positive they couldn't do it."

The official story is that the parts of the planes disintegrated into tiny bits in the World Trade Center buildings, yet some unburned parts of a plane’s exterior were found on top of World Trade Center building 5. Videos also show the plane being absorbed into the South Tower with no deceleration, which seems to defy basic physics. Even if, by some miracle, the buildings exterior dsid not slow down the plane, striking the inner core should have resulted in dramatic deceleration.

John Lear, perhaps the nation’s most skilled civilian pilot said that the pilots who hit the Twin Trade towers pulled off “a magnificent feat of airmanship.” He estimated that they would need 200 or 300 hours on a Boeing 757 simulator to accomplish this and a year’s excperience flying one of those big planes. There would have been a problem getting onto simulators. Air busses are largely used in the Middle East, so they would have to use the equipment of US airlines here. The trouble is that the simulators are booked around the clock for airline personnel. It is very doubtful if any could be booked by unauthorized individuals. As soon as they got into the cockpit, they would have to pull the transponder circuit breaker and disconnect the auto-pilot, turn t he plane and throttle forwar4d all the way on a math to Manhattan. Air traffic control said they were going 600 miles per hour 700 feet above the ground. Planes in air races only go 400 miles per hour. Lear had 19,000 hours of flying time and had flown in air races and thought the World Trade feats, on the first try, were probably beyond his capabilities.

An MSNBC report suggested that some of the hijackers learned their deadly skills at American bases. If so did they use simulators or fly the real planes, and how long?
Retired Firefighter Nicholas DeMasi found three of the four missing black boxes( actually bright orange). He was told to keep quiet about it. Mike Bellone said he found the fourth and was also told to say nothing. We are still told they were never found. According to another account, they were found at thje Fresh Kills landfill and taken by the FBI.

The mainstream press ignored their stories. In December, 2007, a Freedom of Information Act request for all information on these solid state flight recorders was rejected. What could there be in this information that could justify it not being made public if the official story is true?
