9/11: Criminal Incompetence and Ass-Covering by the Bush Administration

14 Facts Which Show Criminal Negligence and Ass-Covering

On this eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, we would like to take a look back at what went wrong.

While the Bush administration tried to make its response to 9/11 its crowning achievement, the truth is that they acted with criminal incompetence and ass-covering.

(1) The U.S. is at least partly responsible for creating Al Qaeda.  For example, Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser admitted on CNN that we organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.

Professor of strategy at the Naval War College and former National Security Agency intelligence analyst and counterintelligence officer John R. Schindler documents, the U.S. supported Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda terrorists in Bosnia.

(2) The chair of the 9/11 Commission said that the attack was preventable.  It is thoroughly-documented that an attack such as 9/11 was entirely foreseeable.  Specifically, Al Qaeda flying planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon was something which American military and intelligence services - and our allies - .

(3) U.S. intelligence services have repeatedly infiltrated Al Qaeda and related groups, but then idiotically failed to stop them.  For example - as the New York Times, CBS News and others reported - the FBI informant involved in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center begged the FBI to substitute fake bomb power for real explosives, but his FBI handler moronically let real explosives be used.

Similarly - as reported by Newsweek, the New York Times and others - an FBI informant hosted and rented a room to 2 of the 9/11 hijackers while they were in the U.S., but then stupidly failed to stop them.

Indeed, former counter-terrorism boss Richard Clarke theorizes that top CIA brass tried to recruit the hijackers and turn them to our side, but were unsuccessful. And – when they realized had failed – they covered up their tracks so that the FBI would not investigate their illegal CIA activities , “malfeasance and misfeasance”, on U.S. soil.

In other words, our intelligence services' attempts to infiltrate and work with people inside of terrorist cells was horribly botched; and they did a horrible job of stopping terrorist attacks once they were set in motion.

(4) Dick Cheney was in charge of all of America's counter-terrorism exercises, activities and responses on 9/11. See this Department of State announcement and this CNN article.  As such, at least part of the blame for failing to stop the attacks is on his shoulders.

(5) The Energy Task Force chaired by Dick Cheney prior to 9/11 collected maps of Iraqi oil, Saudi and United Arab Emerates fields and potential suitors for that oil. And you might have heard that the oil bigs attended the Task Force meetings.

According to the New Yorker – a secret document written by the National Security Council (NSC) on February 3, 2001 directed NSC staff to cooperate fully with  the Energy Task Force as it considered the “melding” of two seemingly unrelated areas of policy:

“The review of operational policies towards rogue states,” such as Iraq, and “actions regarding the capture of new and existing oil and gas fields”.

It is difficult to brush off Cheney’s Energy Task Force’s examination of arab oil maps as a harmless comparison of American energy policy with known oil reserves because the NSC explicitly linked the Task Force, oil, and regime change.

The above-linked New Yorker article quotes a former senior director for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian affairs at the NSC said:

If this little group was discussing geostrategic plans for oil, it puts the issue of war in the context of the captains of the oil industry sitting down with Cheney and laying grand, global plans.

See also this essay.

Is that why idiot Cheney - the guy in charge of all terror protection efforts before and on 9/11 - failed to effectively respond to 9/11 with normal air defense?  Was he too busy pining over Iraqi oil maps to pay any attention?

(6)  The military – under the idiot Vice President’s command that day – didn’t scramble enough fighter jets, and then scrambled jets far over the Atlantic Ocean, in what Senator Mark Dayton called:

The most gross incompetence and dereliction of responsibility and negligence that I’ve ever, under those extreme circumstances, witnessed in the public sector.

Cheney - and the other people in charge of anti-terror response that day - screwed up big time.

But just like the bank CEOs who are rewarded for causing the financial crisis by being given bailouts and subsidies and breaks, the military and intelligence officials who dropped the ball that day have been promoted. As Time reported:

They have basically promoted the exact same people who have presided over the ... failure," says a former Justice Department official, "and those individuals took the same thinking with them.

As the Washington Post reported, no one from the  CIA, FBI or NSA has been reprimanded, punished, or fired for the events of 9/11.

The same is true for the military personnel on watch that day. For example, General Myers, who was Acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on September 11th, was quickly confirmed as Chairman two weeks later. General Ralph Eberhart, Commander in Chief of NORAD at the time of the attack, was promoted to head the new "Northern Command" a year after the attack.

Just as with the financial crisis, no one has been punished, and the people who screwed up have been allowed to fail upwards.

(7) On the day of 9/11, Vice President Dick Cheney initiated Continuity of Government Plans that ended America’s constitutional form of government (at least for some undetermined period of time.)

On that same day, a national state of emergency was declared … and that state of emergency has continuously been in effect up to today. ... even though U.S. military and intelligence officials say that the threat from Al Qaeda is now almost entirely non-existent.

(8) Many of the draconian "national security programs" - such as the Patriot Act, spying on Americans and indefinite detention - overtly approved after 9/11 had actually been implemented or planned before 9/11.  September 11th was used as an excuse to ramp up these programs.

These programs were approved during the Bush administration ... but were never terminated by the Obama administration.  In fact, while Obama is a nicer and smarter guy than Bush, top constitutional law professors say that Obama has actually expanded these programs. And top national security experts say that these programs actually harm our national security and increase the threat from terrorism.  See this and this.

(9)  The Bush administration immediately used the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to carry out decades-old neoconservative plans to implement regime change throughout the Middle East and North Africa.  And see this,

(10) The Bush administration pretended that Saddam Hussein had a hand in 9/11 ...  one of the two main justifications for that war.

(11) Allegedly,  Saddam offered to leave Iraq - and the Taliban offered to turn over Bin Laden - in order to prevent U.S. invasion.  But the U.S. turned down the offers and invaded anyway.

We can't get the bad guys using peaceful means, now can we?  We have a war to fight!

(12) In contrast, other governments that might actually have sponsored the attacks have been let off scot-free ... and have even been given huge amounts of financial support.

(13) As the 9/11 Commission itself notes, as part of its ass-covering efforts, the Bush administration engaged in criminal obstruction of justice.

There are numerous examples of obstruction of justice into the 9/11 investigation, including:

  • The chairs of both the 9/11 Commission and the Official Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 said that Soviet-style government “minders” obstructed the investigation into 9/11 by intimidating witnesses
  • The 9/11 Commissioners concluded that officials from the Pentagon lied to the Commission, and considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements
  • As reported by ACLU, FireDogLake, RawStory and many others, declassified documents shows that Senior Bush administration officials sternly cautioned the 9/11 Commission against probing too deeply into the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001

Moreover, the CIA videotaped the interrogation of 9/11 suspects, falsely told the 9/11 Commission that there were no videotapes or other records of the interrogations, and then illegally destroyed all of the tapes and transcripts of the interrogations.

9/11 Commission co-chairs Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton wrote:

Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation.

This is particularly disturbing because the torture methods used were specially-targeted at producing false confessions.  And according to NBC News:

  • Much of the 9/11 Commission Report was based upon the testimony of people who were tortured
  • At least four of the people whose interrogation figured in the 9/11 Commission Report have claimed that they told interrogators information as a way to stop being "tortured."
  • One of the Commission's main sources of information was tortured until he agreed to sign a confession that he was NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO READ
  • The 9/11 Commission itself doubted the accuracy of the torture confessions, and yet kept their doubts to themselves

The 9/11 Commissioners publicly expressed anger at certain cover ups and obstructions of justice:

  • The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”
  • The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) – who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry – said “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened“. He also said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”

And the Co-Chair of the official Congressional Inquiry Into 9/11 – and former head of the Senate Intelligence Committee – has called for a new 9/11 investigation.

(14)  The American government - like many other governments - has long spun accidents and intelligence failures as justifications for war propaganda.   Unscrupulous Americans - just like dishonest people all over the world - have long used deception as a basis for war.

Whatever the details of the screw-ups on 9/11, the Bush administration used the attacks as a justification to promote their agenda.  And - instead of changing the agenda - Obama has continued it.

Conspiracy free?
Does that mean 9/11 is the result of the loan nutter? 

MrBoompi's picture

Most Americans do not even realize we have powerful groups of people, internationally, who control governments through debt, money creation, interest rates, derivatives, price controls, and more unseemly methods such as bribery, extortion, and force.  They tell people who put 2 and 2 together they are wearing tin hats.  It's much easier to accept the "official" explanation for things.  Castro killed the Kennedys and Osama Bin Laden flew the planes into all of the WTC buildings.


And god fucking bless Dick Cheney and George W Bush.

I usually appreciate GW's stuff.......but this line reveals much:

"while Obama is a nicer and smarter guy than Bush"

Exactly wtf is this statement based on? He is a better public speaker definitely, but other than that we just do not know.

I too was taken in by his honeyed words. But his actions have proven his words to be bullshit.


strannick's picture

Yeah, this progressive pap about how its all G.B.'s fault is tiresome. Its what Obama has been whining about his entire presidency and the platform he will be running on. Obama and Hilary may have gotten straight B plusses in their political science classes, but they are not statesmen, and are clueless how to create wealth or run an economy outside of their ivory towers and away from the manicured lawns and fawning undergratuates of the academy.

Ideologues like ''George Washington" with their Obama stickers and prejudiced blinders; ''meet the new boss, same as the old boss''. Ron Paul is the only politician out there worth listening to. Spare us your bitchy nasally George W. Bush rants and realize that Barnie Obama is every bit the liberty hating bankers bitch that GB was or Bill ''abolish Glass Steagal, deregulate derivatives for Wall St.'' Clinton was for that matter

And he also gives Clinton a complete pass for setting up al Qaeda to pull off the attack (while Bill was getting favors from Monica in the Oral Office).

Then, he faults Cheney for giving some bad orders in a completely unforeseen, unforeseeable attack on 9/11/01.

Finally, he faults Bush for "not letting a crisis go to waste," just as BO has done on many many occasions!

GW, this is bullshit... it is like michael moore's inuendo.. talks about incompetance that let to a successful 'attack'... but seriously, WTF?  if people on this board are smart enough to understand HFT or derivatives, they can also understand simple physics.. those buildings came down as a result of controlled demolition!  that takes you from criminal incompetence to something far worse.. treason.  wicked treason.  


get it together man.  this kind of 'truth speaking' doesnt help anyone.

What do you mean 'what went wrong'?

9-11 enabled the US to invade the middle east, made all the defense contractors filthy fucking rich(er), trashed the constitution, etc etc etc and not one motherfucker is in jail and it's old news to most Americans.

It fucking worked perfect.

This article is completely ridiculous. The author points out all these facts but labels them incompetence but refuses to draw the line to a conspiracy. What a frickin joke. Favorite part- Cheney was too stupid to deploy air defenses. Come on.....

Ron Paul: If I Was In Charge The People Killed on 9/11 Would Still Be Alive

At a speech today in the Sun Dome at the University of South Florida ahead of the Republican convention, the Libertarian former Republican presidential candidate said if he had been in charge 9/11 wouldn't have occurred. “Somebody — rather rationally —- said the other day on the Internet 'if those Paul people had been in charge Osama Bin Laden would still be alive.' But you know what I think the answer is? ***So would the 3000 people killed on 9/11 still be alive!”***

These comments are proof that anarchy rules in the absense of truth.

Why would a government of the people in a nation of laws (based on fact) have something to hide?

The simplest exercise is to seek truth, those standing in the way to prevent it be hung for treason - or is it something far, far worse.

1. In the school, when Bush was told by Andrew Card: "A second plane hit the second tower. America is under attack", everyone commented on Bush not 'doing' anything - i.e. not 'moving' into action. A more important question would have been: Why didn't Bush SAY anything? More specifically, why didn't he ASK anything?

After all, if he had no foreknowledge of the event, how would he know the extent of the attack without asking ???

He did not ask Card ANY questions. He did not give any orders. He did not know the nature of the attack (i.e was it nuclear, biological, chemical or conventional). It could have been an attack of acne for all he knew. He did not know the scope of the attack (i.e. One city or many? By air, land, sea or all of the above?). He did not know who (which group or country) was attacking, whether it was known if there would be more attacks, what military response, if any, had been planned or taken; who was co-ordinating that?

Not one single fucking question. 

To fully appreciate Bush's moronic error, which exposes his lie about being ignorant of any foreknowledge, imagine sitting in your kids' school during a PTA meeting and someone comes and tells you that your (wife, kids, house or car) is being attacked - and then you NOT asking a single question of the messenger like, 'WHERE' or 'BY WHOM' etc.

It's absolutely impossible to not immediately seek more information from a messenger about a disaster when you only get a 'headline' from them. There is only one situation where you might not say a single word and that is if it wasn't a surprise but was expected.

2. When Bush was later asked why he didn't get up and do something, he said it was because he didn't want to alarm the children.

Since when have a group of 2nd graders been 'alarmed' when a non-family member leaves the room? What a crock!

Kids spend every day watching adults entering and leaving rooms without giving them an explanation about where they're going and/or why. If you weren't suspicious before about Bush lying through his teeth about 9/11, then this rushed and stupid answer should have sealed it.

3. If he was so concerned for the kids, why didn't he immediately get them out of the building? The details of his trip to that school were made available to anyone via the Whitehouse website which shows all the President's public engagements well in advance. So how did he know that there wasn't another Jet headed for the school from, say, Tampa International Airport which is only a few minutes away by air. Probably less than 5 minutes at 300/400+ m.p.h. Perhaps, you may say, it's because Bush is an idiot but the Secret Service would have recognised that potential danger.

4  Why didn't the supposed terrorists wait just another hour or two to hit the WTC when the buildings would have been full. Not only that but every single trader in the world would have hit the SELL button at the same time.
We are led to believe that these terrorists carefully chose the targets to impact the 'pillars' of US Imperialism.

So, we're supposed to believe that these terrorists were savvy enough to circumvent the best defence systems in the world - and know that the WTC represented a financial pillar of US Imperialism - but were ignorant of the financial markets' opening times ?? - when the attack would have caused the most disruption ?? - make me laugh!

The same thing has happened on almost every single terrorist activity since. The shoe bomber, the underwear bomber etc. These events always conveniently happen on holidays when the markets are closed. How very considerate of Al Qaeda.

So the last question is:

5. Why have these real terror attacks and supposed threats always occurred when the markets are closed? Is it possible that they hate our freedom but respect the opening bell as 'off-limits' !  

9/11                        - Before US markets opened
UK 7/7 bombing        - After UK markets are closed.
Shoe Bomber            - Richard Reid  - Saturday before Christmas Day 2001.
Underwear Bomber     - Umar Abdulmutallab - Christmas day 2008 
Time Square Bomber  - Faisal Shahzad - Saturday May 1st 2010

"It's absolutely impossible to not immediately seek more information from a messenger about a disaster when you only get a 'headline' from them."

True.  Bush knew.  At the moment he was told of the "attack" he started acting and became the worst actor imaginable. He knew what was happening but didn't know how to act appropriately so he sat as a silent, mute, dumb actor.

It's all Bush's fault.

Money 4 Nothing's picture

This has to stand as a message to all American's and Patriot's alike to please read this. I won't touch this topic here again but this is an extremely important message. 
This date and all the circumstances surrounding it was custom crafted to get the Americans and their Government to sign off on a domestic Military and security system that will rival, say... China. 

The American public will be okay with it because it was framed under the guise of Homeland Security. "Were going to keep you safe" Yea, bound, gagged and at gun point. Safety has different meanings for both sides, especially if their plan get's found out. They want to know who's talking, that's it.

If this "Pearl Harbor" type event is successful without the Americans becoming suspicious that this is a larger picture being part of a global power grab then you will bring down the United States and the world for that matter and the general public will be none the wiser. We will use all their laws and Patriotism against them to ensure our success.

The enemies thought's.. I'm musing,

Q) How can we take over America without American's freaking out that there is too much spying infrastructure being installed, too much power transfer taking place because we don't want them to notice too early that were striping them of their right's so we can infiltrate and neutralize any resistance to our tyrannical plan we have to take over the United States of America?

A) Your going to have to stage a domestic catastrophe on the levels of a "Pearl Harbor" event to be convincing because if the American's find out too early that we staged this event, we may find ourselves in a protracted Revolution too early on American soil and will not be able to complete our plans if the TRUTH get's out. 

It doesn't matter at this point because they got away with it, they needed a "Pearl Harbor" type event to train military and place spying technologies that would make George Orwell take notes in the name of Homeland Security.

The take over of America and the world for that matter is almost complete. The psyop has worked wonderfully to their favor. If you say 9/11 was an inside job, (which it wasn't, it was a joint collaboration) than you will be labled Un-Patriotic by your Countryman and ignored of any vital evidence that you may bring forwards that would have otherwise alerted all Americans and exposed their plans too early.

To take over America, without a 9/11 style event, the general public would have been highly suspicious of why all these security apparatus were being put into place domesticly and they would never recieved the funding to do so if it wasn't in the name of Homeland Security. 

Wake up America, we have been infiltrated and covertly influenced by the Communits party at all levels of the Government.

At this depth of the rabbit hole, they have now made it impossible for the US citizens to re-claim their Country and a peacefull solution has been made impossible on both sides because too much time has gone by, they have increased their powers and We the People have lost our powers. Any new gun control will be the coup d'états.

They are basically done at this point with little or no resistance because you have been lied to and didn't recognize what they were doing. You were told ""We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th" George Bush was part of the problem, why do you think a hard core Communist proceed him? He is a closer.

If everyone recognised right away that 9/11 was state sponsored terrorism, (which allot did and were silenced) we wouldn't be where we are today and to prove that theory, have things got better since then? 

Shock and Awe must be disposed of and break the Normalcy Bias you have been brainwashed into thinking there is an elusive, borderless enemy that must be brought to Justice. And no, your not allowed to keep all your "stuff", were all going to lose it in the end.

Were at fault because the American people and the world for that matter were tricked into a security grid that has no reason to be in place if it wasn't for a rogue element making a global power grab via EO's, "Patriotic Act's" and the expansion of the Military Industrial Complex to the size this Nation has never seen before. 
Like it or not, this is what they have done.

To speak out against the Treasonous acts of 9/11 is the utmost of Patriotism, you have then identified the real enemy that want's to take over your United States of America and steal your Freedoms in the name of Security. 

Bottom line? We have lost America in the name of becoming secur-ed.

Yeah, it's George Bushes fault.  You have to go back a lot farther than GW.  What about shriveled penis Clinton, or George Bush Sr., Ronald Reagan, Nixon, etc., and all the collateral administrations. To think this plan merely evolved over the last 10 years is absurd. The only presidents who truly cared in the last 60 years were Kennedy and Eisenhower. The rest were all bought and paid for by the syndicate elite. Of course 9/11 was foreseen, and of course it was an inside job. A trial regarding the missing 2.3 trillion dollars by the Defense Dept. was to begin on 9/12.

this is the first i am censorious of a george washington article which basically amounts to whitewashing a criminal conspiracy.....there is absolutely no truth in the fact that 9/11 was criminal negligence - it was treason and murder by the bush crime syndicate - an act with abundant foreknowledge by many people and people groups.....

i urge everyone to read jim marrs book on the subject....al qaeda means database and it was and is a database of bcs / cia thugs who do mercenary work for the bcs and its wall street puppet masters like wirth walker iii and his wife who profited immensely on 9/11 inside information from family members.....aaron russo speaks of nick rockefeller foretelling it.....and marrs documents scores of people, including high school kids, who specifically foretold of its occurence....

nuclear weapons and controlled demolition brought down the trade towers, capabilities which not even al qaeda mercenaries could wield....the war games under cheney's control were covers for the perpetrators....there is so much more in marrs book....

9/11 was a bcs action through and through....please don't shovel that crap that criminal negligence was involved....

Read Susan Lindauer, EXTREME PREJUDICE ....  Former CIA asset, working in Iraq and Lybia.  Gave Bushies and Congress plenty of written notice of the coming air attack in lower Manhattan in August 2001.  The Justice Department threw her in jail to shut her up so the R's could take us to two senseless wars.

Both of you are right ... but, never forget that both 9-11 and the Iraq invasion were planned under Clinton's administration (around 1995) ... and I doubt that either Clinton or Bush personally knew what was being planned by the Khazarian Luciferians in key positions (since the 1950s, at the very latest) in the administrations and the agencies.

Just as Kennedy only found out about the Cuban machinations at the last minute, and called them off (causing his assassination shortly thereafter), it would be foolish, IMO, to believe that either Bush or Clinton were "in" on the detailed planning and execution of 9-11. It is also obvious to me, from the way that Congressional hearings are "managed", that key Congressional committee chairs are briefed on what is allowed to be discussed or questioned after such events.

The whole apparatus in Washington DC is riddled with corruption and treason -- administration, agencies, Congress, SCOTUS, Pentagon and lobbyists. Don't get distracted by shills like GW into looking at just one tiny aspect of the whole apparatus.

Ghordius's picture

+1 i-dog, the "enemy" is corruption, the cancer of all organizations. though part of the corruption is istitutionalized by lobbyism.

Nevertheless, the after-9/11 action was peculiar. Nobody fired the National Security Advisor, for example. No "big heads rolling" whatsover - this usually does not happen. And the best friends of this advisor and the president had lots of interests in oil, pipelines and mercenaries, the "economic theme" of both Afghanistan and Iraq. And they named a supertanker after this advisor.

That SOB Saddam Hussein was goaded into a conflict with Kuwait, and it was all about credit, arms and oil price.

His point was that Kuwait could not expect him to pay back if they continued to dump the oil price. His point was that he asked the US and the Saudis to mediate, and they both refused and claimed no interest whatsoever in this conflict. His point was that his murderous war with Iran - where he accumulated this debt - was on behalf of the US and Kuwait (and Kuwait being a front in all this), and he pointed to the money and arms sales shipments they gave him for it, at a time when he was "our son of a bitch" fighting "our Great Satan".

Of course he has being discredited enough not to count - for many he is Satan himself - and so his version is quite unknown, in the AngloSphere. But a lot of the rest of the world remembers.

The only difference I can spot is that I call those "business interests", instead Luciferians of And I wonder where all those mercenaries are going next.

i-dog's picture


"I call those "business interests", instead [of] Luciferians"

That's a diversion. The business interests are always secondary to the political interests. It's true that there were oil contracts and oil pipelines in the mix, but the political interest is currency control and regime change -- away from secular governments and into controlled authoritarian governments that will do the NWO bidding when the time is ripe (very soon, if they can juggle the plates correctly). 'Agenda 21' is an economic-political blueprint for central planning on a global scale.

With Afghanistan, for example, oil pipeline contracts for Conoco were a bone of contention in the late 1990s. But the real driver for the invasion was the Taliban ripping up the opium poppies in 2000: That cut around $300 billion a year from the "off balance sheet" income statement of the "hidden power" in 2001 and had to be immediately reversed ... by the invasion just 4 weeks after 9-11 and the immediate re-planting of the opium poppies by the ZATO troops. The "hidden power" now reaps $400+ billion a year from revived Afghan opium/heroin production, while the US taxpayer foots the $1 trillion bill for the protection force, and there is still no Conoco pipeline!!

A similar situation applied more recently in Libya - where the secular, but occasionally self-interested rather than 'team player', governments of Mubarak and Ben Ali were taken down before ZATO invaded and assassinated Qadaffi. Libya's oil was secondary to its gold, its central bank, and its compliant Muslim Brotherhood government, along with the MB also being installed in Egypt and Tunisia. Soon, the whole MENA will be controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood - another division of the Luciferian NWO which will probably call itself an "Arab Union" once they have Syria, Lebanon and Turkey also under their control.

"I wonder where all those mercenaries are going next"

They'll be used as a real global police force -- to keep governments of smaller countries toeing the NWO line and enforcing the provisions of Agenda 21 -- once the US, Europe and MENA are under control and no longer able to politically command the massive arsenal and mercenary force that was formerly the property of the people of the USA and some former European nation states.

Ghordius's picture

Only one point which might be a partial answer to Joyful, too: Afghanistan and the logic of Empires.

During the Epoch of the "Great Game", Afghanistan was already a bone of contention between two great Powers: Russia and Britain.

The British Empire's greatest fear was that the Russian Empire would grow and connect to and so threathen British India (today's Pakistan and India) and did a lot to keep it's contendent out.

In the same manner, our dear empire is quite busy keeping China out of Afghanistan, fearing that a pipeline might be built between Iran and it's biggest customer and friend. And probably continuing to frustrate our new "friend in that part of the world" Russia. That north-south pipeline is a side action, yes.

Meanwhile, of course, yes, poppy is king and flows into the coffers of the Kremlin-friendly local mafias and the CIA, and Russia is a necessary logistic partner for NATO, particularly since our friendship with Pakistan (the Land of the Pure) has grown cold again.

Nevertheless as a rule commercial interests are always what propels every empire and 90% it's actions. This is true since much longer than the day when Caesar assembled the wine producers and slave merchants and explained them what wonderful commercial possibilities the Pax Romana in Northern Gaul could mean for them. One amphore = one slave, and the Opium, pardon me, Wine War could start against the damn Gallic prohibitionists.

Note that commercial interests trascend and are more important than even the question of fiat- or petro-money. Or even who is going to finance the operations, as the Dutch bankers found out with Philip II of Spain.

Lucifer deals in pride, Mammon in greed, Satan in wrath (a Jesuit wrote this, so it must be true, hehehe, wink, wink, smile). Of the three, Mammon is seldom missing.

Our correspondent Ghordius has sullenly refused to place Andrew Carrington Hitchcocks' Synagogue of Satan any higher upon his reading list, and therefore remains(by choice) unaware of the proven propensity of his protected protaganists to pillage and profiteer from the well programmed peons whom they parasitize...

"Jewish influence made the United States just what they are - that is, American. For what we call Americanism is nothing else, if we may say so, than the Jewish spirit distilled... modern capitalism is nothing more nor less than an expression of the Jewish spirit...

-Capitalism was born from the money loan.
Money lending contains the root idea of capitalism. Turn to the pages of the Talmud and you will find that the Jews made an art of lending money. They were taught early to look for their chief happiness in the possession of money. They fathomed all the secrets that lay hid in money. They became Lords of Money and Lords of the World..."

from Werner Sombart, "The Jews and Modern Capitalism," ( in which he states that from 1820 on, it was the "Age of the Rothschild," and concluded that there was, "Only one power in Europe, and that is Rothschild."

Our friend Ghordius is mercifully and blissfully fully aware of the Luciferian "hidden power". We had an exchange about a year or so ago wherein he inadvertently outed himself and his agenda. He now protesteth too much...though, in fairness, he does this more as a mechanism to pacify passing sheep rather than as an attempt to dissuade us from our well-researched views.

I actually enjoy when he acts dumb, since it gives me yet another chance to clarify and re-state different aspects of the background to my assertion that the Jesuits and Sabbateans are one and the same; that they are both of Khazarian stock; that they have been a war-mongering tribe from their first divergence from the Indo-Aryan; that they adopted Sumerian banking principles along with the Kabbalah during their "holiday" in Babylonian captivity after they were chucked out of Egypt 3,600 years ago; that early attempts at world domination were also carried out by Khazarians in the persons of Alexander and Julius; that they have been meddling in world religions and politics for millenia, always with the objective of ultimately gaining global control over the "lesser" species; that they have controlled and massively profited from the slave and drug trades for centuries; that Zionism is their creation and has been a goal for centuries; that their ideological horsepower is scattered throughout the Jesuit network of universities, colleges, seminaries, think tanks and political round tables; that the financial horsepower is scattered throughout the Sabbatean banking and precious commodities trades; and that successful businessmen and politicians are more often than not initially financed and thereby controlled by them - including such well known actors as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao (who were all Jesuit-trained and Sabbatean-financed).

I'm not a subscriber to the "Rothschild rules the world" club. I believe that Rothschild has massive wealth along with some other older and similarly wealthy families...but that much of that wealth could be confiscated at any time by the political class, just as the political class can be bought at any time by all that wealth. It's a symbiotic relationship and a simple analog of the old king versus church dualism (where the king permitted the church and the church endorsed the king...notwithstanding that both came from the same noble families). In this latest incarnation, the Jesuits have succeeded in taking over most of the organs of governance worldwide while their Sabbatean twins have finally cornered the whole of global finance.

There is no way that a single family like the Rothschilds, over a game of croquet or during a mid-week hunt, could plan and coordinate all the activities and propaganda that constitute this global takeover...including the drafting of multi-thousand-page US and EU 'laws'. Those tasks are carried out by tens of thousands of willing (and many unwitting) ideologues scattered throughout the Jesuit Luciferian network (which not only includes their extensive theological, education and research establishments, but also extends into the upper levels of Freemasonry and Mormonism, the secret societies like Skull and Bones, and round tables like the steering committees of Bilderberg and the CFR).

Oops...apologies for rambling!

i-dog, I still think you are mistaking me with someone else - and me choosing a clear, unmistakable nick and avatar!

Anyway, if you want to involve Julius Caesar or even Alexander, then it can't be Khazars. The only possible player would be the Magi.

Only the Magi had at that time a network of spies and other resources - in this part of the world.

All in all, an embarrassing tour de farce, and further proof that Merikans(even 'top flight' Merikans likes as reads ZH!)have retreated into a coccoon of knee-jerk numbness, devoid of powers of thought...

The original comment, by Blue Dog, which led to the hi-JacK[shit]of the thread was a succinct and brilliant summation of the facts -

,,,don't believe any of that stuff. "George Washington" writes a lot of crap. There's no way the CIA can infiltrate muslim terrorist groups. They only recuit people that they know personally.,,

were one to actually employ a thinking cap, instead of a hat rack!  

There's no way the CIA can infiltrate muslim terrorist groups. They only recuit people that they know personally.,,what part of this statement is non-factual? Al-CIAeda is a kreation of the 'external security' apparatus of the ZOG-controlled usurpacious entity kurrently in kontrol of DC...the witless dupes enrolled to kreate the fiction of Muslim Terrorists TM were known to and employed by those same agents of the ZOG state...kase klosed.

As for the rest of Blue Dogs' statement...,don't believe any of that stuff. "George Washington" writes a lot of crap...yu have to scroll down half a mile to get to the point where some punter finally calls in to point out the obvious - 2739159 - hivekiller nails it. This. article. is. a. load. of. krap. as were the komments following BD's bazooka blast, bein led down the usual rabbit hole of the klassic thread jack kind.... 

On the bright side, hopefully this weekend puts in a new low to the wretched warblings of the Wash[ed]Up One, and the dishevelled denizens of the comments gallery, and marks the beginning of new 'bull run' of anti-bullshit here on ZH, as the peeple come to their senses and see thru the lies and laughable laziness of the top banner krew of moneypower shills!

I don't know what y'all been smokin' up there Georgie boy, but I didn't do a damned thang!  And that's the honest truth.  In fact 3 of the biggest disasters in US history happened on my watch, and I swear I didn't do a damned thang!  9/11,  Bogus Iraq war, and Financial Collapse, all on my watch.  And the Tea Baggers have the balls to be cryin' 'bout Bama's birth certificate,  half a bil on solar panels of mass destruction, and some of what we call "varmit rifles" crossing the border.  Insanity I tellzya.

But did you see me handle that chainsaw? Whoo-boy I'm a regular working guy.

Well 26 of the House of Saud wives are coming over for a BBQ and I must prepare my secret sauce if you know what I mean... :)

Catch you boys at the football game,  Hookem Horns!

It's over! Zero Hedge has been invaded by Dem vs. Reb idiots. This site WAS the last place to go without hearing or reading these brainwashed morons argue back and forth. I might as well go to the Yahoo message boards....

I was thinking the same thing.  It's frankly amazing how profoundly stupidity has infected the populace.  No matter what you tell them... all they see is red vs blue.

F--ing morons.

Thank you for the reminder. When one investigates a murder, the first suspect would be those that stand to profit from the act. In this case, Cheney, Rumsfeld, along w/their oil/military contractor cronies made out like bankster's.
An appropriate punishment is nearly impossible to imagine.

“Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God.”-ThomasJefferson's picture

The entire Bush family, i.e., Prescott, George H.W., George the Retard, Jeb, blah, blah , blah..... are CIA infiltrated, power hungry, big oil/crony capitalists/bankster whores.

Obama is a pawn of the Chicago power brokers/Jews who are CIA infiltrated,power hungry, big oil/crony capitalists/bankster/whores.

Insert any and all politicians and they will all eventually succumb to the dark side.

This will all sort itself out very soon when the fiat currencies fail worldwide.  They had better have very good hiding spots for themselves and their putrid spawn.  They're going to need to lay very low, hopefully FOREVER!

As an engineer and as someone who designed 2 blast furnaces and an electric metal melting furnace for my sand casting metal foundry hobby and also worked in the aerospace industry for over 12 years (space shuttle, rocket systems, military/commecial aircraft and tubines and similar shit)...  I have relinquish the crown of all knowing to the smallergovtnow dude. 

However, my attempt at melting a measly 5 lbs of steel in a silicon carbide crucible in a blast furnace with 6 inch thick high temp refractory only ended up with 3.5 hours of full roar running out of propane.  Yep, the furnace roared with slightly reduced fuel/air mixture .. it was cool ... pun intended)  The trees were lit up 50 ft high from the 2 in peephole like a space ship was landing in my back yard (brilliant white.. not orange like WTC's) and me running around with a welder helmet on and protective gear being very alien like, my omega pyrometer pegged at 2400 F, my ceramic sleeved thermocouple fucked up and a ruined $90 crucible. I thought the neighbors were going to call the cops on me for entertaining aliens.

But my conclusion about 9/11 is that regardless of the if, how, what, who, how and why's of the tragic event ... it is not unreasonable to believe that invading Iraq and securing those oil fields with American controlled entities/persons/whatever could very well be considered a necessary task of highest priority national security needs if the people in power and others behind the scenes knew the US dollar was in its last hurrah years as the worlds' reserve currency and that the country would be unable to function economically or otherwise and its military rendered impotent without those ensured oil supplies.  Countries with a dead currency can't buy oil with toilet paper.

So the lesson is... buy on the fuckin dips.  Now we return to your regularly scheduled programming .. :)
