Could it have been avoided? : 

Could it have been avoided? Maybe…

Was it an inside job? : 

Was it an inside job? Facts have been left out. Important details overlooked. Missing pieces of the puzzle. So who really knows?

But there’s always two sides to every story. : 

But there’s always two sides to every story. The lie and The truth

So let’s start with the story everyone was told… : 

So let’s start with the story everyone was told… On the morning of 9/11/2001 Flight 11 takes off with 5 hijackers on board Flight 77 takes off with 5 hijackers on board Flight 93 takes off with 4 hijackers on board Flight 175 takes off with 5 hijackers on board

Slide 9: 

Hijackers used deadly force to take over the planes The planes were located in no-fly zones The planes flew off course 8:46am- North Tower is hit 9:02am- South Tower is hit 9:37am- Pentagon is hit 10:03am- Crash in rural Pennsylvania Pretty straight forward, Right? 9:58am- South Tower collapses 10:28am- North Tower collapses

Slide 10: 

One Problem There’s so much more to the story

Fact 1 : 

Fact 1 An airplane can not fit through a 16ft hole. Most signs wouldn’t remain intact either…

Fact 2 : 

Fact 2 Jet fuel is not hot enough to melt steel.

Fact 3 : 

Fact 3 A plane crash looks like this… Not this…

Fact 4 : 

Fact 4 World Trade Center 7 was not hit by a plane, Yet it fell the same way both Towers did. but demolished… Weird…

Fact 5 : 

Fact 5 Thermite was found in the World Trade Center rubble.

Fact 6 : 

Fact 6 Osama bin Laden is not wanted by the FBI for the events of September 11, 2001. Instead he’s wanted solely for the 1998 bombing.

Fact 7 : 

Fact 7 Government officials and business leaders received warnings and avoided targets of the attacks. Including: * A warning by the FBI advising Attorney General John Ashcroft to avoid flying on commercial airlines. * The report that Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans the evening before the attack. * The cancellation of plans by Ariel Sharon to attend an event in New York City on 9/11/01. * A warning to San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to avoid flying. * The grounding of Salman Rushdie by Scotland Yard.

Fact 8 : 

Fact 8 There were failures to Scramble Intercept Report Redeploy * The two F-15s scrambled from Otis AFB to chase Flight 11 flew at an average of 447 mph, about 23.8% of their top speed of 1875 mph. * The two F-16s scrambled from Langley to protect the capital flew at an average of 410.5 mph, about 27.4% of their top speed of 1500 mph. * The two F-15s scrambled from Otis AFB to protect Manhattan could have reached the capital in 9.6 minutes once they arrived over New York City. That was still 34 minutes before the Pentagon was hit. * Despite NORAD's having received formal notification of the first hijacking at 8:38, no interceptors were scrambled from Andrews to protect the nearby Pentagon until after it was hit at 9:37. * The FAA took 18 minutes to report Flight 11's loss of communication and deviation from its flight plan. * The FAA took 39 minutes to report Flight 77's deviation from its flight plan. * Two F-15s flying off the coast of Long Island were not redeployed to Manhattan until after the second Tower was hit.

Fact 9 : 

Fact 9 * Flights 11, 175, 77, and 93 were only at 51%, 31%, 20%, and 16% occupancy, respectively. All four flights were unusually empty.

Fact 10 : 

Fact 10 Top officials were not available until after the attack was over. President George W Bush remained at an Elementary School until about a half hour after the news of the attack went on TV Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff allegedly remained in a meeting with Senator Max Cleland until nearly the time the Pentagon was hit. General Montague Winfield had Navy Captain Charles J. Leidig, Jr. (rookie) assume his watch as Deputy Director for Operations for the National Military Command Center at 8:30 am on 9/11/2001 and relieved him after the attack was over

Slide 21: 

This book was supposed to inform us of the events of September 11, 2001. Instead it tells us only what the Government wanted us to know about that day.

The 9/11 Commission Report… : 

The 9/11 Commission Report… fails to acknowledge that no steel-framed high-rise building has ever collapsed due to fires. fails to mention the total collapse of 47-story steel-framed skyscraper Building 7 at 5:20 on the day of the attack. contains no mention of the interview in which the owner of Building 7 states that he and the Fire Department decided to "pull" Building 7 -- an apparent admission of a conspiracy to destroy the building and its contents. fails to mention the rapid removal and recycling of the structural steel from the collapsed World Trade Center buildings. fails to mention that no credible footage of the Pentagon attack has been made public, despite public knowledge that the FBI seized footage of the attack from nearby businesses. And these are only a few of the things that were left out.

Knowing that information was left out makes you wonder, who really was behind it? : 

Knowing that information was left out makes you wonder, who really was behind it? These terrorists? … or these?

No one wants to think their Government would put them in harms way… : 

No one wants to think their Government would put them in harms way… Others may not think our Government is capable of pulling through with something of this magnitude. But that’s for you to decide.

All I know is… : 

All I know is… 9/11 was a tragedy Many innocent lives were lost So many pieces to the puzzle are missing And the truth is still unknown
