(WMR) — Multiple U.S. intelligence sources have reported to WMR that a super-classified network with only some 70 terminals in select U.S. government locations handled the parallel command-and-control activities that permitted the 9/11 terrorist attacks to be successful.

The “above top secret” network bears the acronym “PDAS.” WMR has not yet discovered what the acronym stands for, however, the system is limited to only a few hundred people with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Special Access Program (SAP) need-to-know access, in addition to the president and vice president.

On September 11, 2001, PDAS was used to convey the information from the Air Force Chief of Staff to the White House, CIA, and other select agencies that the Air Force had successfully intercepted and downed a target over Pennsylvania. It is believed that the “target” in question was United flight 93, although there is no confirmation that the aircraft was in fact the one downed by Air Force interceptors.

The Air Force Chief of Staff on 9/11 was General John Jumper, who had become the top Air Force commander on September 6, 2001, just five days before the 9/11 attacks.

There is also reason to believe that the PDAS terminal at the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) at the White House was used to coordinate the activities related to the aerial attack on the Pentagon. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta claimed Vice President Dick Cheney was present at the PEOC at 9:25 am on the morning of 9/11, before the alleged impact of American Airlines flight 77 on the building.

Mineta testified before the 9/11 Commission that Cheney was aware of special orders concerning a plane heading toward Washington. Mineta said: “During the time that the airplane was coming into the Pentagon, there was a young man who would come in and say to the vice president . . . the plane is 50 miles out . . . the plane is 30 miles out. . . . and when it got down to the plane is 10 miles out, the young man also said to the vice president ‘do the orders still stand?’ And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, ‘Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary?’”

9-11 Conspiracy Theorist Hits the Road… Infamous 9-11 conspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin, whose books insist the Bush Administration and not al Qaeda blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, is launching a speaking tour this week to help merge the “9-11 Truth Movement” with “more traditional Peace and Anti-War groups” against the “illegal and immoral war” in Afghanistan. The tour also presages Griffin’s next book, Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory. This volume will make much hay over an Obama White House official’s article in 2008 as a Harvard law professor, suggesting that the government actively rebut conspiracy theories by networking on social websites. … Prodigiously, Griffin has been churning out 9-11 conspiracy books since 2004, asserting that U.S. agencies contrived a false flag terrorist attack through controlled demolitions. His first conspiracy potboiler was The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11. Griffin believes that U.S. history is primarily a long catalogue of conspiracies across two centuries to facilitate American imperialism and aggression. Griffin faults the United States for killing hundreds of millions of people globally through its economic, military and environmental crimes, making the U.S. more murderous than the old Soviet Empire or the Third Reich. – Front Page Magazine

Dominant Social Theme: Another tour to avoid?

Free-Market Analysis: The controversy around 9/11 is nearly a decade old now but it will not subside. People like David Ray Griffin continue to be in demand from a speaking standpoint and the amount of people who don’t believe in the official 9/11 story may amount to as much as one-third of US adults. This is a significant problem, in our opinion. When this many people have questions about something so fundamental as 9/11, an erosion of civil society begins to occur. Government becomes the cynosure of suspicions rather than an organizing or socializing influence.

We want to return to 9/11 in this article as a follow to an article posted on Saturday, which attracted a great deal of feedback, and some pushback as well. The Bell examined a posting by Jeffrey Scott Shapiro for Fox News. In the process of rebutting recent accusations about 9/11 in a new book by Jesse Ventura, he made the rather startling claim that “Larry Silverstein, the property developer of One World Financial Center was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building [WTC-7] – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.”

We pointed out, along with many others in the blogosphere, that this was a surprising assertion since it can take weeks to wire a building for demolition. And we wrote, “Thus, the blogosphere speculated, either the building was already wired or Larry Silverstein was thinking about wiring it in the future.”

However, from the context of the statement, it seems fairly obvious that Silverstein is speaking of demolishing building 7 in a fairly immediate context. This is an important issue because Silverstein has always denied any intention of wiring the building and had explained a way a previous comment of his about “pulling” (demolishing) it. We also wrote that there are other issues swirling around the current 9/11 narrative. For instance, former Attorney General for the state of New Jersey and former senior counsel for the 9/11 Commission, John Farmer, has written a recent book on problems the Commission had with government and military testimony. He writes bluntly in his foreword: “”At some level of the government, at some point in time, this book concludes there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened.”

Additional questions regarding the official narrative have long been raised out on the ‘Net. There is considerable confusion over the names of those who were said to have participated in the hijackings, with some of the alleged hijackers apparently now living in Saudi Arabia or elsewhere. Bin Laden denied culpability for 9/11 and the many-storied caves out of which he supposedly worked were never found, nor were the Al Qaeda troops with which he surrounded himself.

Griffin himself has raised questions about the telephones from which victims supposedly called before impact. Cell phones were likely not capable of being used to make calls but there were apparently no onboard phones either on the planes, apparently, so how were calls made to loved ones, he asks. There are even more basic issues, such as why was the World Trade Tower steel supposedly shipped away from the site so quickly, within days when ideally such a vast and intricate crime scene should have been left alone for analysis?

Larry Silverstein, the lease holder of the World Trade Center Towers, claimed to be so devastated by the events of 9/11 and the deaths of four of his employees that he could not focus on insurance or financial matters until “perhaps two weeks later.”

However according to journalist Steven Brill, on the evening of 9/11 Silverstein was already calling his lawyers to see if he could make a double claim on his WTC insurance policy.

See the 9/11 Timeline entry on Silverstein’s call regarding insurance on the evening of 9/11.

In Steven Brill’s book, After: How America Confronted the September 12 Era, he states that:

“Real estate developer Larry Silverstein was on his way to a dermatologist on the morning of the 11th, instead of the Trade Center—the multibillion-dollar complex where he had leveraged a $14 million personal investment in a partnership that owned the leasing rights to the buildings into bragging rights as the complex’s putative owner. Silverstein would tell the author five months later that he was so shocked and sickened by the destruction and by the loss of four of his employees that morning that he did not think he focused on issues like insurance or finances until “perhaps two weeks later.” In fact, according to his own lawyers, by that evening he was on the phone with them worrying whether his effort to shave costs when he’d bought insurance would now come back to hurt him, or whether his insurance policies could be read in a way that would construe the attacks as two separate, insurable incidents rather than one. The difference was roughly $3.55 billion versus $7.1 billion—the kind of gap corporate litigators dream of.”

Clinton’s responsibility for Waco.

NBC’s ‘cynical’ mind-control games

The network admits it uses “behavior placement” on popular shows to encourage healthy, eco-friendly habits — and sell ads.

April 9, 2010

First there was product placement. Now there’s “behavior placement,” the planting of subtle messages in popular TV shows to encourage certain viewer behavior — such as healthy eating or eco-conscious habits — and thereby convince sponsors that their brands will be associated with “feel-good, socially aware” shows. NBC has owned up to the practice, reports The Wall Street Journal, as part of its Green Initiative: If “Tina Fey is tossing a plastic bottle into the recycling bin,” the theory goes, audience members will be more apt to do the same. Innocuous or “Orwellian”?

This isn’t just creepy, it’s dumb: The pressure to be eco-conscious has reached a new high, says says Christopher Rosen in Movieline. NBC implies that people are too dumb to make healthy decisions on their own. How “patently stupid.” Do viewers really need NBC “telling them how to run their life?”

What’s the big deal? Despite the hubbub, the principles NBC promotes are “fairly innocuous,” says Amy Chozick in the Wall Street Journal. “Climate change may be controversial,” but these shows don’t make a political statement — they simply show characters making green-conscious decisions. “Most people can agree… [this] is a good thing.”

“What your TV is telling you to do”

Unfortunately, healthy habits aren’t the bottom line: Clearly, for NBC, behavior placement is about dollar signs and cynicism, says Jon Bershad in Mediaite. The execs’ attempts to manipulate their viewers to draw eco-conscious, health-conscious advertisers is “soul-crushing” proof that “everything is a business” these days.

U.S. and Iraqi officials have today announced that two “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” leaders have been killed in an air strike carried out by American troops. A major flaw in the story that seems to have been overlooked, is that both of the men have already been reported captured and killed on several occasions, with U.S. officials also having previously declared one of them a “fictional character” that was invented by the other!

The Washington Post reports:

The deaths of Abu Ayyub al-Masri, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the head of an umbrella group that includes al-Qaeda in Iraq, should disrupt insurgent attacks inside the country, officials said. Their slayings could also provide Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki (pictured above) with a decisive political boost at a critical time.

“The death of these terrorists is potentially the most significant blow to al-Qaeda in Iraq since the beginning of the insurgency,” Gen. Ray Odierno, the top commander of U.S. troops in Iraq said in a statement. “There is still work to do but this is a significant step forward in ridding Iraq [of] terrorists.”

The two insurgent leaders were said to have been killed on Saturday in a night raid involving Iraqi and American forces.

Reuters reports:

United States military officials confirmed that Iraqi security forces had killed the two men. “The death of these two terrorists is a potentially devastating blow to Al Qaeda in Iraq,” the American command said in a statement.

He (the Iraqi prime minister) said the house was destroyed, and the two bodies were found in a hole in the ground where they had apparently been hiding.

Bizarrely, the Reuters piece quotes the Iraqi prime minister pinpointing the location of the raid as “a house in Thar-Thar, a rural area 50 miles west of Baghdad that is regarded as a hotbed of Qaeda activity”, however, the Washington Post report quotes U.S. officials saying the raid occurred “a few miles southwest of Tikrit”. If you look at a map of Iraq, those two descriptions do not entirely add up, unless you consider “a few miles” to be over 100. Certainly a more specific location could have been given.

However, that is perhaps the least of the problems surrounding this story.

Anyone who reads the news should be feeling a profound sense of déjà vu, because almost a year ago to the day, al-Baghdadi was reported captured by Iraqi security forces. His arrest was confirmed by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the same man now purporting that Baghdadi has been killed in a raid.

Al-Baghdadi was the replacement al-CIA-da boogie man for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was also previously reported captured and killed on several occasions, after al-Zarqawi was laid to rest for good by the PR arm of the Pentagon in 2006.

The announcement of al-Baghdadi’s capture year ago, jarred with multiple previous reports over a two years period, detailing his arrest, his death and even questioning his existence altogether.

In March 2007, the Interior Ministry of Iraq claimed that al-Baghdadi had been captured in Baghdad. This was reported by AP and picked up by the likes of CNN, whose report stated that another insurgent had positively confirmed al-Baghdadi’s identity.

The U.S. military denied that al-Baghdadi was in their custody, however, and one day later Iraqi officials retracted their statements regarding his arrest.

Indeed this back and forth announcement of capture and later retraction occurred three times in the space of one week.

Then one month later, on May 3, 2007, the Iraqi Interior Ministry announced that al-Baghdadi had been killed by American and Iraqi forces north of Baghdad.

However, in July 2007, the U.S. military declared that al-Baghdadi had never actually existed and was, for all intents and purposes, a myth.

The Murrah Building in Oklahoma City

On April 19, 1995, the front half of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building was ripped apart when a Ryder truck loaded with approximately 5,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate fertilizer was detonated in front of the building. 168 people, including 19 children, died in the explosion with another 680 injured.

Ninety minutes afterwards, Timothy McVeigh, the man who had parked the Ryder truck in front of the building, was arrested on minor charges of having no vehicle registration, no license plates, and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. Like Lee Harvey Oswald, he was quickly arrested following the crime.

He was later charged and convicted of murder and put to death. His co-conspirator, Terry Nichols, was convicted of murder, conspiracy, and arson and was given a life sentence. A third suspect, Michael Fortier, was tried as an accomplice and was given a reduced sentence in return for testifying against McVeigh and Nichols.

Housed in the Murrah building were the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Marine Corps Recruiting, U.S. U.S. Army Recruiting Battalion, Defense Security Service, and America’s Kids Child Development Center along with other federal agencies. It was considered a Level 4 building in terms of security. A Level 5 building is maximum security.

McVeigh gave as his primary reason for the bombing the actions of the U.S. government at Ruby Ridge and at Waco. In particular he singled out agents with the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms as being responsible for the deaths that occurred.

Interestingly enough the Murrah building housed employees of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms however no one in that office died in the blast.

As with 9/11 there are many problems with the official version of what really happened. According to the government, the damage done to the building was done solely by the truck bomb driven by Timothy McVeigh. But eyewitness and news reports reveal that multiple bombs were heard and later additional bombs were discovered in the building. Yet the government never explained how those bombs were planted inside a secure facility.

Read the affidavits from witnesses at the Oklahoma City bombing. Another article on the Oklahoma City fairy tale.

Later, Brigadier General Benton K. Partin, an expert in ordnance development, did his own analysis of the Oklahoma City bombing. He concluded that the fertilizer truck bomb could not account for the damage to the building and that other bombs – planted inside the building – had to have been involved.

However his report and letters to members of Congress were ignored and he was never invited to testify during McVeigh’s trial or during the grand jury proceedings. Click to read Partin’s report.In 1997 Terry Nichols alleged in an affidavit that a “high ranking federal official” was involved in plotting the Oklahoma City Bombing along with convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh. FBI involved with Oklahoma City bombing. He further stated that McVeigh – like Mohammed Atta – had a German handler and that McVeigh told Nichols that he was engaged in an “undercover mission” for the government.

So was McVeigh just another patsy like Mohammed Atta? The families who lost relatives and friends in Oklahoma City are still waiting for answers just as the families and friends of those who died on 9/11 are waiting for answers.

Cui bono ?

The question also arises as to who benefited from the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City.

Certainly it wasn’t the militia movement even though they were blamed for the carnage. Timothy McVeigh became the poster boy in a campaign to demonize those who opposed growing government power and to provide cover for what government agents did in Waco and at Ruby Ridge during the Clinton administration.

It also made possible the passage of legislation that had a tremendous impact on the law of habeas corpus in the United States. Other provisions of the AEDPA created entirely new statutory law.

So who benefited from the Oklahoma City bombing ?

How about the government.
