Flight 77 missed the Pentagon: Flight Data Recorder

Animation from Flight 77 Flight Data Recorder: the last second recorded. Note the altitude, second dial from top.

By Craig McKee

In the last two posts, I’ve tried to show how the limited damage to the Pentagon and the lack of wreckage left by the crash show that a Boeing 757 could not have hit the building on 9/11. If that was all the evidence there was, it would be enough to disprove the official story.

But there’s more. A lot more.

Flight 77 took off from Washington Dulles International Airport at 8:20 a.m. on Sept. 11. Its last routine radio communication took place at 8:51. At 8:54 the plane went off course, and at 8:56 its transponder (more…)

Missing wings at the Pentagon: study says they’d have snapped off, not folded in


“When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains — however improbable — must be the truth.” – Sherlock Holmes

By Craig McKee

I’m not in the habit of quoting fictional characters, but these words (actually written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) are so perfect when challenging assumptions about what happened with Flight 77 and the Pentagon on Sept. 11.

Unfortunately, many people approach things the other way around. They imagine that alternative scenarios are too far-fetched to be possible – so we have to stick to the official story. What I choose to do (more…)

How we KNOW an airliner did NOT hit the Pentagon

 

September 23, 2010

By Craig McKee

The government and the media have told us that a Boeing 757 airliner hit the Pentagon at nearly 9:38 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001.

But we know it didn’t.

For the Pentagon to have been hit at by the allegedly hijacked American Airlines Flight 77, the laws of physics would have to have been repealed. Admittedly, it wouldn’t be the only time that this appears to have happened that day.

I believe that any reasonable person who is willing to look at the evidence (photo and otherwise) will (more…)

Fun with the bizarre Kennedy/Lincoln coincidences


By Craig McKee

Are you one of those people who reads all kinds of things into coincidences?

I’ve done this at times, but I usually try to convince myself that you notice something when there’s a coincidence that you wouldn’t notice the rest of the time. In other words, these occurrences are really just chance.

A coincidence is defined by Dictionary.com as a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time, apparently by mere chance.

When I was a kid I remember hearing about the coincidences between the lives and deaths of U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy. At the time, I thought it was very cool. The most (more…)

People love conspiracies – when they’re fictional

By Craig McKee

So are you evil, naive, crazy, or disloyal?

Based on how most people seem to react to the subject of conspiracies, you’d think we’d all fit into one of these categories.

Why evil? Well, if you take the position that anyone who refutes a conspiracy theory that you like must be part of the dark and powerful elite that wants to crush the truth and enslave the masses, then this might be the one that speaks to you. This goes with the “all or nothing” attitude. It`s kind of the reverse of George Bush`s “If you’re not with us, you’re with the terrorists.”

Naive can go both ways: one side thinks the other is naive to believe in either absolute. You’re either naive to think there would never be a hidden conspiracy, or you’re naive to think there’s one around every corner.

Crazy is pretty much exclusively what the anti-conspiracy people accuse the conspiracy theorists of (more…)

The rush to judgment (part 2): propaganda wars

By Craig McKee

It’s all about sleight of hand.

The trick with getting people to accept a lie without question is to have them hear it amidst lots of action. Bombs are good. Noise helps. Fear is essential.

It was Adolf Hitler who said: “The great masses of the people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.” Why am I quoting the biggest mass murderer of the 20th century? Well, the man knew his propaganda.

Here’s another one: “By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even (more…)

The rush to judgment: a familiar pattern (part 1)

Oswald was silenced by Jack Ruby.

By Craig McKee

When I started this blog, 9/11 was just supposed to be one of the topics to be addressed. But in doing research on the subject, I found myself becoming more and more captivated. And more and more angry.

The story has so many angles, so many questions, so many lies, so many glaring omissions. When the attacks first happened I assumed, like most people, that Osama bin Laden was indeed responsible. I may have hated Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, but that didn’t make me question the official account.

The event was so huge, so destructive, so shocking that the idea that anyone other than Bush’s “evil doers” had been involved seemed unthinkable. I should have known better. As a firm believer that John (more…)

The truth about 9/11 must come out

In a world of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. George Orwell, 1984

By Craig McKee

It has now been nine years since the most elaborate “false flag” operation ever staged. Despite the thousands of lies we’ve been fed since Sept. 11, 2001, the fact becomes clearer with each passing year: 9/11 was an inside job.

But knowing this is not enough. The awareness of the role of unseen forces in the 9/11 attacks must further permeate the public consciousness. People have to begin to understand the implications of this atrocity, and they have to get mad.

It is vital that we continue to ask questions, apply pressure, and generally speak out. We can’t let the momentum ease for a second. The mainstream media is clearly not willing to help. The government certainly won’t. So it’s up to the public and the grassroots truth movement.

No one else will stand up for all the people who lost their lives that day – those who worked in the buildings and the firefighters and rescue workers who died trying to save them. And let’s not forget those (more…)

Barry Jennings and the truth about Building 7

By Craig McKee

The destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 is still unknown to most members of the general public. But there is someone who was there – and who told his story.

He was Barry Jennings, the emergency co-ordinator for New York City’s housing authority. He almost died in Building 7 – from explosions that came from below him as he climbed down to the sixth floor. Oh, and the explosions started before either of the twin towers came down.

Jennings did pass away in 2008 – supposedly of cancer – although some are suspicious of this. Jennings death occurred just two days before the release of the NIST report on the collapse of Building 7. And he had apparently told co-workers that he had been threatened that he would lose his job or his pension if (more…)

The disappearing Building 7: a 9/11 smoking gun

Fires weren’t enough to collapse Building 7

By Craig McKee

Shortly before 5 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, BBC World reporter Jane Standley told a TV audience that World Trade Center Building 7 had just collapsed, the third WTC building to fall that day as the result of supposed terrorist attacks.

The problem was that the 47-storey office tower was still clearly visible over her left shoulder during the entire live report. Roughly 23 minutes after this “mistake” the building actually did fall. How did the BBC know this would happen? Where did the premature report of the destruction of the building come from?

While the BBC has claimed that it was simply an error, they have made no effort to provide the public with the source of their information (Standley says she doesn’t remember what she said on camera). It is also interesting that Standley’s video feed broke up at around 5:14 p.m., sparing us the site of the (more…)
