"The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly executed

military operation against the United States, requiring the utmost

professional military skill in command, communications and control."

Putting more of the pieces together...

The Enemy Is Inside The Gates...


By Col. Donn de Grand
(US Army-Ret.)


From: hengist

A dedicated group of experienced civilian and military pilots,

including combat fighter pilots and commercial airline captains,

just finished a marathon 72 hours of non-stop briefings and

debate over the current crisis evolving from the use of commercial

aircraft as cruise missiles against the World Trade Center and the

Pentagon on 11 September.

The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly executed

military operation against the United States, requiring the utmost

professional military skill in command, communications and control.

It was flawless in timing, in the choice of selected aircraft to be used

as guided missiles,  and in the coordinated delivery of those missiles

to their pre-selected targets.

As a tactical military exercise against two significant targets (world
financial center and the citadel of world strategic military planning),

the attack, from a psychological impact on the American public,

equaled the Japanese "surprise" attack on Pearl Harbor 7 Dec 1941.
The over-riding question: If we are at war, who is the enemy?

The group determined that the enemy is within the gates, that he has
infiltrated into the highest policy- making positions at the Federal

level, and has absolute control, not only of the purse strings, but of

the troop build-up and deployment of our military forces, including

active, reserve and National Guard units.


The 9-11 activity and horrific destruction of US property and lives

was intentionally meant to trigger a psychological and patriotic reaction

on the part of the US citizens, which is paving the way for "combined

UN activity" (using the fig leaf of NATO) for striking key targets in both

the Middle East/ South Asia and the Balkans. The goal continues to be

ultimate destruction of all national sovereignty and establishment of a

global government.

The trigger for the 9-11 activity was the imminent and unstoppable
world-wide financial collapse, which can only be prevented (temporarily)

by a major war, perhaps to become known as WW 111. To bring it off

(one more time), martial law will probably be imposed in the United


In each of the major wars of the 20th century, the financial manipulators
(located in the City of London and New York City) had placed the US

(and much of the Western world) in a monetary expansion mode, followed

by an ever- tightening vice of a gigantic credit squeeze.
We now have two ongoing and tightly controlled simultaneous events
(emanating from the two symbolic targets of 9111) Alan Greenspan, Fed
chairman, promising to flood the market with up to $200 billion in FRNs

and to further lower interest rates, thus bringing about hyperinflation and
dollar devaluation.

Much of these multi billions in largesse will be dumped into the coffers

of Wall Street, Defense, bankrupt airlines, insurance companies and into

the willing arms of debt-ridden third-world countries in the form of debt
repudiation (forgiveness). Call it bribery, in order to get these often
reluctant nations to join our coalition of "freedom fighters" in "the war
against terrorism".

2) Paul Wolfowitz, deputy Defense secretary, promised that the US

will launch "sustained military strikes against those behind the terrorist
attacks on New York and Washington". He said that the "military
retaliation would continue until the roots of terrorism are destroyed."

This bit of saber rattling was seconded by select NATO allies (especially
Britain), and by our chief ally in the Middle East, Ariel Sharon, while
Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld, with the blessings of Pres. Bush

11, is activating thousands of national guard and reservists, not only to

guard the vulnerable airports, but to do fly-overs of our Nation's capital

in F16s from the North Dakota Air Guard. Other National Guard units

are being jockeyed into potential combat "hot spots" throughout the Middle

East/South Asia and the Balkans.


Following is a summary of the near-unanimous views of the assembled
military and civilian pilots concerning certain critical factors relating
to the WTC/Pentagon hit of 9- 11: Troubling questions arose about the
alleged pilot-hijackers of the four aircraft, who were supposedly trained
on Cessna aircraft over the past year at fields in Florida and Oklahoma.
One General officer remarked, "I seriously question whether these

novices could have located a target dead- on 200 miles removed from

takeoff point...-- much less controlled the flight and mastered the intricacies

of 11FR (instrument flight rules) -- and all accomplished in 45 minutes."

The extremely skillful maneuvering of the three air- craft at near mach
speeds, each unerringly hitting their targets, was superb. As one Air Force
officer -- a veteran of over 100 sorties over North Vietnam -- explained,
"Those birds (commercial airliners) either had a crack fighter pilot in the
left seat, or they were being maneuvered by remote control."

Another pilot warned that "we had better consider whether electro-magnetic
pulse or radio frequency weapons were used from a command and control
platform hovering over the Eastern Seaboard... I'm talkin' AWACS."

Another comment"If there was an AWACS on station over the targeted

area, did it have a Global Hawk capability? I mean, could it convert the
commercial jets to robotic flying missiles?

A hotly debated questionWho would be in command of such an Airborne

Warning and Control System (AWACS)? Were they Chinese -- Russians

-- Saudis -- Israelis -- NATO ? All of these countries possess AWACS-type

aircraft. All (except the Saudis) have the capability to utilize electro-magnetic

pulsing (EMP) to knock out on-board flight controls and communications

of targeted aircraft, and then, to fly them by remote control.

One of the Air Force officers explained that we had already flown a robot
plane the size of a Boeing 737 across the Pacific to Australia -- unmanned
-- from Edwards AF13 in California to a successful landing on an Aussie
base in South Australia. It flies along a pre-programmed flight path, but
is "monitored" (controlled remotely) by a pilot from an outside station.

He explained that the London Economist (20 Sep 2001) published

comments from the former CEO of British Airways, Robert Ayling, who

stated that an aircraft could be commandeered from the ground or air and

controlled remotely in the event of a hijack.


An AP story, dateline Brussels - 7 Oct 01 -- "At Washington's request,

NATO will soon deploy surveillance aircraft for anti-terrorist operations

in the United States in response to the attacks on New York and Washington,

NATO officials said Sunday, an unprecedented use of foreign military forces

to defend the U.S. homeland."

The assembled group of pilots debated why we would ask for foreign forces
to fly AWACS over our sovereign territory when we have a fleet of 33 of
them, of which 28 are stationed in Oklahoma. The debate also centered on
whether such NATO surveillance aircraft were already here prior to 11

Could one of them have commandeered the four airliners?

There seems to be wide discrepancies between what the Federal government

is proclaiming -- and their media moguls reporting -- as opposed to the calm
and reasoned and rational views of those men who fly the planes and defend

the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

This writer has been a general aviation pilot since 1946. 1 have flown a
variety of single engine prop aircraft since, and installed an FAA-approved
airstrip here on my farm in 1980. Two local pilots periodically joined me
for short hops; one, a Madison County lawyer, a graduate of the Air Force
Academy, who flew for the Air Force before coming home to practice law.

The other, Kent Hill, who lives with his wife, Carol, on a farm close to
mine, is an American Airlines captain assigned to the European route. He
was a lifelong friend of "Chic" Burlingame, They were graduates of the
Naval Academy and flew F-4 Phantoms in Vietnam. Both left the Navy 28

years ago and joined American Airlines. Both planned to retire in 2002.

Chic was the captain of AA flight 77, a Boeing 757, which departed

Washington Dulles for Los Angeles at 810 am on I I September, with 58

passengers and a crew of 6. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon at 9:41 am.

"We were totally trained on the old type of hijack," Capt Hill said, "where
you treat the hijacker cordially, punch a 4-digit code into your
transponder to alert ground control you're being hijacked, and then get him
where he wants to go, set the plane safely on the ground and let them deal
with it on the ground. However, this is a totally new situation... Not one
of the planes alerted ground control that they were being hijacked." How


"The fact is, all the transponders were turned off on the doomed flights
virtually at the same time." Look at their departure times -- two from
Logan (Boston), one from Newark, another from Dulles (Washington DC)

 -- all between 8 am and 8:15.

"Shortly after climb-out to flight level, their transponders are de-activated..

(they are no longer a blip on the radar screens). This is something that

really needs to be looked into. The only reason we turn them off is so

they don't interfere with ground systems when we land."

(NoteTransponders identify a particular aircraft in flight on the radar
screens of FAA flight controllers located throughout the country. Various
codes are punched into the transponder, one displaying, "I am being hijacked.")

Although there is much talk among the various flight crews, Hill says they
are not privy to any of the investigations into the events of I I
September. "We're in the dark -- very much so ... They're playing it pretty
tight to the vest."

He is convinced none of the pilots had control of their aircraft when they
were flown into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The question

then becomes, who was really in control?

"Even if I had a gun at my head, I'd never fly a plane into a building.

I'd try to put it in anywhere -- a field or a river --and I'd be scaring the
hell out of them (the hijackers) by flying upside down first," Hill said.

In fact, the pilot has the best weapon in his hand when threatened with
imminent death by a hijacker, namely, the airplane.
Another airline pilot stated. "On hearing a major scuffle in the cabin, the
pilot should have inverted the aircraft and the hijackers end up with
broken necks."

That none of the four pilots executed such a maneuver points toward the
fact that none of them had control of their aircraft, but had been
overridden by an outside force, which was flying them by remote control.

As an old and not so bold pilot, I became more convinced that the four
commercial jets were choreographed by a "conductor" from a central source,
namely an airborne warning and control system (AWACS). They have the
electronic capability to engage several aircraft simultaneously, knock out
their on-board flight controls by EMP (electro-magnetic pulsing) and assume
command and remote control of these targeted aircraft.

As we consider all the options -- and enemies -- who performed this act of
war, whether from China, Russia, an Islamic country, or from NATO, we

must also consider that the enemy may be within the gates.

If so, then we are dealing with high treason.
The same source sent another email to me:

OVERVIEW I want to start out by responding to that tiny percentage of
negative email I receive that accuses me of being anti American. I'm not.

I think America is a great place, and the American people by and large are to
be admired.

What I am against is any government that lies to its people. This includes
the government of the United States which, contrary to Bill Clinton's
comments on the matter, is not the same thing as the country. The country
is the people. The country is the land. The country is those who build,
teach, heal, grow, manufacture, and along the way raise a family. The
United States is not found in the marble buildings along the Potomac.

The United States is found in the homes and hearts of 266 million


The government, its self delusions of grandeur aside, is nothing but a
custodian, and a temporary one, hired by the people to care for our nation,
and if that custodian fails in that job, like any menial, they should be
replaced. Our nation did just that once before, in 1776, and it must be
remembered that those who were called "Patriot" were those who stood

with the people of the nation, not with the corrupted government.

There is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the government,
as custodian of the nation, to lie to the people. It's just not in there.
And yet the government of the United States has been caught repeatedly
lying to the people of the nation in recent years, lying about Vince Foster
, TWA 800, Waco, Martin Luther King [oh well], John F. Kennedy, The
Oklahoma City Bombing, and others too numerous to mention. Suffice it

to say that if the government of the United States finds itself with a
credibility problem, it has only itself to blame.

When the government of the United States lies to the people, it acts
illegally and un-Constitutionally and by the strict interpretation of that
document ceases to be the legal government of the land. But let us set

that aside for the moment and look at why the US Government lies to

the people and what such lies have accomplished in the past. Only then

can we understand why the reasoning citizen must have serious doubt

we are being told the truth by the government in the present case.

Some of the biggest lies told by the government of the United States are
those used to initiate a war. Modern pundits keep equating the attacks of
9/11 to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

This is a slippery, indeed dangerous analogy, since it has been proven

in recent years, by way of recently declassified documents, that FDR
deliberately maneuvered Japan into the attack on Pearl Harbor and kept

the Hawaii commanders from knowing of the attack so that there would

be plenty of dead bodies with which to enrage Americans into support

of a war that as of December 6th, 1941, nobody wanted. American boys,

shouting "Remember Pearl Harbor", marched off to war. Many did not

come back.

The Spanish/American war was likewise started with deception. The Hearst
Newspapers flooded the land with stories of Spanish abuses of the Cuban
people; stories which turned out to be fictional and which were published
solely to fan the flames of a war, not for the benefit of the Cuban people,
but to enlarge American territory and influence.

When USS Maine exploded in Havana Harbor, the Captain of that ship

insisted that the explosion was not the result of any attack. But he was

shouted down by the press, and American boys, shouting "Remember

The Maine", marched off to war. Many did not come back. And all because

of a lie. In 1975, a review of the evidence by admiral Hyman Rickover,

the father of the modern nuclear Navy, concluded that there hadn't been

any Spanish mine at all, just as the Maine's Captain had reported. The

ships had suffered a fire in a coal bunker, detonating the ship's magazine,

imprudently located nearby.

The same with the Gulf of Tonkin. Even as Johnson exhorted the American
people to respond to the torpedo attack on the Maddox, Johnson knew there
hadn't really been any torpedoes, not had the USS Maddox been as innocent

as claimed. American boys again marched off to war. Many did not come back.

Following the Bay of Pigs, which was by any definition an invasion of a
foreign nation, the US Joint Chiefs proposed staging fake terrorist attacks
that would be blamed on Cuba, to build support for a second invasion.

Of course, there is nothing new about politicians using terror on their own
citizens to get what they want. The trick goes back to Roman times, and
even Hitler found it useful.

So, let's take a moment to push aside those flags being held in front of
our eyes like blindfold and take a close look at the current situation.
The United States government, despite nice sounding speeches about

freedom and Democracy (sic This author should have said Republics) ,

has a record of overthrowing actual working Democracies (sic This

author should have said Republics) and supporting outright dictatorships.

The US, for example, backed Cuban Dictator Batista, Chile's Pinochet,

the Shah of Iran, and the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, to name just

a few.  The US backed these regimes because the dictators were willing to

do favors for American multi-national corporations.

Batista, for example, kept the prices of Cuban agricultural products
below the prevailing market rate. This made American companies like

United Fruit and PepsiCo more profitable, at the expense of the Cuban

farmers, who eventually revolted, bringing Castro to power. Castro let the

market set the price of Cuban produce, whereupon the United States

declared an embargo and invaded at the Bay of Pigs. Then we wonder

why the Cuban people may not like us.

Another classic example of US foreign policy as it really is was South
America. Chile had a working democracy under Allende. But US corporate

interests saw a greater chance for profits if the Democracy (sicThis author

should have said Republics) were to be replaced by a dictator friendly to

US interests.

This led to the US backed coup, complete with torture squads trained by US
experts. Henry Kissenger flat out stated that the United States had a right
to intervene in any Democracy (sicThis author should have said Republics)
that voted contrary to American interests, adding, "The issues are much too
important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves."

Same deal in Iran. The US Government backed the Shah of Iran. The rich got
richer, the poor got poorer (same as in the United States) and the people
of Iran revolted, bringing the Ayatollah Khomeini to power. Iran was our
friend, now it's our enemy.

The same with Iraq, once our friend, and now our enemy. Indeed, the United
States keeps switching sides so often, with the American people expected to
follow along like lemmings, that one is reminded of George Orwell's "1984"
in which the perpetually warring nations are always changing allegiance,
and the war weary people wake up one morning to be told, "Eastasia is our
friend. Eastasia has always been our friend. Pacifica is the enemy."

This brings us to Osama Bin Laden.

Osama is the modern equivalent of Orwell's "Emmanual Goldstien", the

boogie man on whom the government blames everything. Even though

careful observers have long known the United States economy was poised

for a major decline, the media is spinning the current economic woes as a

direct result of the attacks on the World Trade Towers, in the hopes that

the general public will be stupid enough to believe it.

If Orwell is not to your taste, then let's try L. Frank Baum and the
"Wizard Of Oz", who used a paper mache' mask to scare Dorothy Gale

into doing war with the Wicked Witch of the West, something farm girls

would not normally be wise to do. After all, witches have air superiority!

Likewise, Osama appears to be a manufactured monster, designed to scare

us into doing things we otherwise would not so, including support a war,

cease criticizing the government, and surrender our freedoms.

Contrary to the public media image of Osama, he is not a lifelong religious
fanatic. At the time the United States covert intervention in Afghanistan
triggered the Soviet invasion , Osama, like the rest of his family, was
living a westernized lifestyle. One of Osama's brothers was a business
partner with the son of the then vice-president and former head of the CIA,
George H. W. Bush.

The CIA needed a front man in Afghanistan to oppose the Soviets, since
Vietnam was too fresh a memory for the American people to tolerate another
war, especially since the lid had just been blown off of the COINTELPRO
scandal , revealing the criminal actions the FBI had engaged in to silence
opposition to that war.

So, trained and financed by the CIA, Osama quit being a westernized Saudi
and seemingly overnight became a fanatical muslim and financier/leader of
the fight against the Soviets, waging an indirect war on behalf of the
United States. Osama was a creation of the CIA and we only have the CIA's
word that Osama isn't still in their employ. However, as another CIA asset,
David Ferrie, pointed out just prior to his own assassination, you don't
leave the agency. Once you are in, you are in for life!

Afghanistan is an interesting place. It has natural gas, petroleum, coal,
copper, chromite, talc, barites, sulfur, lead, zinc, iron ore, salt,
precious and semiprecious stones, and more opium than the Burmese

Golden Triangle. It is also one of the most deadly places on Earth, having
destroyed every invading army since the time of Alexander the Great!

Afghanistan also sits on the proposed route for an oil pipeline which

would allow the vast oil reserves sitting under the Caspian Sea to be

brought to market, and it is no secret that a consortium of American oil

companies want to build that pipeline.

However, as John J. Maresca, vice president of international relations,
Unocal Corporation, flat out told Congress in 1998, the pipeline would not
be built until the Taliban was removed as the government in Afghanistan,
even though the United States had installed the Taliban as part of the
anti-Soviet strategy.

When one considers the size of the Caspian oil fields, estimated at about
500 years' worth at present rates of consumption, one finds ample motive

to start a war of conquest for that wealth. Compared to the trillions of
dollars in oil profits which will flow from that pipeline stretching across
Afghanistan, the cost of new World Trade Towers and a few thousand

lives is a small price to pay to those who lust for wealth beyond dreams

of avarice.

Long before the attacks on the World Trade Towers, the United States was
already announcing that there would be a war. While the American people
were kept distracted by "All Condit All The Time" in the American press,
the foreign press was reporting as early as March 2001 that the United
States was planning to invade Afghanistan in October. and here it is,
October. and here the United States is invading. and just like with FDR,

a provocation occurred just when the government of the United States

most needed one to anger the people into support of a war for oil.

No sooner had the planes crashed into the World Trade Towers than the

media was reporting official statements of suspicion that Osama Bin Laden

was behind the attacks. The FBI issued names of suspected hijackers, none

of which appeared on the actual passenger lists, and all based on what the

FBI admits were forged IDs using stolen identities.

Moreover, the men used those stolen identities the night before the attacks
to visit strip bars, making so much noise that they would have to be
noticed, ensuring that the credit card slips using the stolen names would
be turned over to police.

When Flight Attendant Madeline Sweeney phoned the ground from her

hijacked plane, she gave the seat numbers of the hijackers. The passengers

assigned to those seats do not appear on the FBI's list of suspects. Then

there was tha t suitcase,  appearing out of nowhere and assumed to have

been left off of one of the crashed planes by accident, containing a flight

manual, a Koran, and a handwritten letter which any scholar of Islam

would recognize was written by someone ignorant of the religion.

In short, the evidence that purports to link the attacks on the World Trade
Towers with Osama appears to be planted, with the scene of the crime
looking like the set of a cheap detective movie, with a vital clue always
carefully positioned within camera view.

Because of the phony IDs, we do not really know who was on those

airplanes, or who they worked for.

But it is very obvious who we are all supposed to blame; the people sitting
on that oil pipeline right of way!

So great is the rush to war in Afghanistan that Osama has himself almost
become secondary in the media campaign to sell us all on hatred of the
Afghani people.

Indeed it isn't Osama who terrorizes Americans, it is the American media,
waving fear all over the place. Yes, Anthrax is nasty, but would a real
anthrax attack harm so few people? More people have been gunned down in
Washington DC in the last 6 weeks than have died by anthrax. More people
are sick with Dengue fever on Maui than are sick with Anthrax. Yet Anthrax,
and the fear it is designed to cause, get the headlines, to keep the public
scared, so scared that they cannot think.

Because once the people stop being terrorized by the media and start to
think, they'll realize that it makes no more moral sense to bomb the
Afghani people over what crimes Osama has done than it makes to bomb

people of Chicago over the crimes the mafia does.

And once the American people realize this, they'll start to wonder what

the real reason for bombing the Afghani people might be. Then they'll start
paying attention to John J. Maresca's comments before congress about that
oil pipeline. Then the American people will notice those foreign news
articles that announced the US invasion of Afghanistan last spring. Then
the American people will realize that the timing of the attacks on the
World Trade Towers is just a little too convenient to the already scheduled

And that is when the American people will realize that, once again, they
are being lied to to swindle them out of their support for a war, a war not
fought for moral principle but for profit, profit from oil paid for in the
blood of our children. END

Not to mention sweeping nations' for their wealth of gold, minerals, gems,
and making them gateways for DRUGS.


LET'S STOP KIDDING OURSELVES!  9-11 was a Zionist spanking on our
collective American bottom! A Boeing 757 DIDN'T hit the Pentagon (no
aircraft debris), a late model cruise missile did the job; the Twin Towers DIDN'T
collapse due to heat, demolition charges did the job;  there were NO Arab hijackers
(the jets were guided electronically); and the Zionists/Judeo-Christians now in
control of the United States are traitors to the U.S. Constitution... as well as being
mass murderers.This has been a Zionist WAG THE DOG operation from the start,
deadly serious for our elected leaders WHO KNOW WHO'S GUILTY, and an Arabian
Nights charade for Mom and Pop in Littletown, U.S.A.! So let's start figuring out what
we can do about it! H. Ayre.
