World Trade Center, Twin Towers: Lights Shining

9/11. We must never forget.

Of course. Never forget the almost three thousand innocent people who lost their lives in one of the biggest acts of mass murder in modern history. The plight and the suffering of all those people is burned into our collective consciousness and should never be forgotten.

But there’s more we should also never forget.

Never forget… the extraordinary and implausible degree of air-defense failure in New York, Washington and the US (just for that morning and no other), the inexplicable deviations from standard procedures, or the curious air-defense stand-down orders (which were issued by Vice President Dick Cheney, who had been placed in command of NORAD that morning).

Never forget… the fact that the entire 9/11 scenario had been fully rehearsed in prior War Games: and not only was an active drill going on on the morning of 9/11, but air controllers didn’t even know if what was happening with the hijacked planes was part of the training exercise or a real-world event.

Never forget… that the Neo-Con Cheney/Rumsfeld-led administration had already published a paper prior to 9/11, calling for a “new Pearl Harbour” style event in order for the US to be able to embark on its twenty-first century foreign policy ambitions.

Never forget… that World Trade Center Building 7, which wasn’t hit by anything, also inexplicably collapsed on the morning of 9/11: and that this building happened to house offices for the CIA, the US Secret Service, and the New York City Emergency Management.

Never Forget… that no definitive proof has ever been disclosed to show that a plane hit the Pentagon: and that no plane wreckage was ever found – and also that the Pentagon is perfectly equipped to deflect any such incoming attack but apparently chose not to do so.

Never forget… the 2.3 trillion dollars that Donald Rumsfeld announced had gone missing from military spending – the day before 9/11. It must’ve been just a coincidence that the exact part of the Pentagon that the phantom ‘plane’ hit on 9/11 was the exact department where the computers and people were who were investigating the missing money.


Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld


Never forget… that Osama bin Laden denied any involvement in the 9/11 attack. And that Bin Laden had previously been a US/CIA asset/ally in Afghanistan.

Never forget… that as late as 2006, Bin Laden’s FBI profile contained no reference to him having been involved in 9/11. Paul V. Sheridan (Winner of the 2005 Civil Justice Foundation Award) was told by an FBI spokesperson, “Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.”

Never forget… that the so-called Bin Laden confession videos have never been proved to be genuine: and that even the BBC was compelled to wonder whether the video that the Cheney/Rumsfeld administration was citing as “the smoking gun” was in fact a fake. German television later asserted that the White House’s translation of the video was inaccurate and “manipulative”.

Never forget… that CIA officials even casually admitted to creating fake Bin Laden videos, as in this Washington Post piece showed.

Never forget… that, twenty years later, the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks, Sheikh Khalid Masood, still hasn’t been put on trial or formally prosecuted.

Never forget… the Bush/Bin Laden family and business connections. Or that financing of the 9/11 operation is believed to have provided chiefly by US ally Saudi Arabia, and principally via Prince Bandar (or ‘Bandar Bush’).

Never forget… the group of ‘dancing Israelis‘ who were found celebrating the World Trade Center attack while observing (and filming) the event from a rooftop from across the Hudson River. Not, as Donald Trump later falsely claimed, “thousands and thousands of cheering Arabs”, but several dancing Israelis. The police and FBI field agents had said they’d found the men with maps of the city with various key points highlighted, as well with other suspicious objects like box cutters, large amounts of cash and foreign passports (note also that box cutters were supposedly used by the 9/11 hijackers). Two of the five ‘Dancing Israelis’ were later confirmed as Mossad agents, while some others among the broader number of Israelis arrested after 9/11 were reported to have been active members of Israeli military.

Never forget… before the Bin Laden narrative became firmly cemented as fact in the media – there was discussion in some of the media of these suspicious Israelis in New Jersey and discussion of foreknowledge of the attack by Israeli intelligence agents who, at the very least, chose not to warn US authorities of the imminent act of terror. A CIA agent seemed to confirm their cameras were set up to film the World Trade Center before the first plane struck.

Never forget… the 60 to 100 Israelis who were arrested in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attack – part of an Israeli spy network that was engaged in highly suspicious activity: or that all of them were sent back to Israel by December 2001 – by which time the ‘War on Terror’ and the incursion into Afghanistan was already underway.


9/11 Mossad van


Never forget… the Mossad front-company (‘Urban Removal Systems’ – pictured here) found carrying explosives in New York on the morning 9/11 and the bizarre 9/11 attack mural decorating one of their vans.

Never forget… the US Army report published in Washington Post THE DAY BEFORE 9/11, which said of Mossad or Israeli intelligence services (referred to elsewhere as Israeli Secret Intelligence Services: or ‘ISIS’ – see this C-Span video): ‘Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.’

Never forget… that, six months before 9/11, the World Trade Center had been privatised for the first time, leased to private-sector developer, Larry Silverstein, instead of remaining under the control of the Port Authority. Silverstein profited from the 9/11 attack to the tune of $4.5 billion. Silverstein had acquired the entire World Trade Center complex (and control of its security arrangements) from the New York Port Authority on a 100-year lease in July 2001 – a few months before 9/11. Silverstein managed to coerce his insurers into maximising insurance payout in the event of a terrorist attack and even acquired guarantee of an instant cash pay-out. Silverstein also later sought further billions by suing the airlines whose planes were used in the attack. He also managed to maximise the profit by insisting that the two planes meant two separate terrorist attacks.

Never forget… that Silverstein is also widely quoted on the morning of 9/11 as having called for the building to be “pulled” after the planes had impacted – as quoted in a PBS documentary called ‘America Rebuilds‘.

Never forget… that the Trump/Kushner cabal, the Israelis and the Neo-Cons are all part of the same mafia: AIPAC’s Michael Glassner was reported to have arranged the controversial deal that handed over the lease for the World Trade Center to the Larry Silverstein group just before 9/11: and Michael Glassner was Donald Trump’s top political planner, playing a major role in the presidential campaign. And the other key player linked to Silverstein’s acquisition of the World Trade Center before 9/11 was Lewis Eisenberg, who was chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Eisenberg, a former Goldman-Sachs man like Steve Bannon, is also friends with Donald Trump and was in fact appointed by Trump as a US ambassador. He, like Silverstein and Glassner, is involved with a number of Israeli organisations. In fact, Jared Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, was also appointed to the New York and New Jersey Port Authority that was responsible for the World Trade Center prior to 9/11.


Larry Silverstein and Jared Kushner


Never forget… that the same Larry Silverstein who earned billions from 9/11 also has substantial connections to Israeli organisations and is friends with several Israeli Prime Ministers, particularly Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon. Indeed, Silverstein is said to be particularly close to Benjamin Netanyahu: just as Trump and Kushner are. The Israeli daily paper Haaretz claimed that Silverstein (pictured above with Jared Kushner) and Netanyahu were so close that the real-estate mogul was at one point receiving calls from Netanyahu on a daily basis.

Never forget… that Benjamin Netanyahu was actually in New York on the morning of 9/11: which is funny, as he was also in London on the morning of 7/7. And that it was Netanyahu himself – and not the Bush administration – who was the originator of both the ideological framework of the ‘War on Terror’ and the very phrase itself: a phrase which, of course, became the official umbrella term for America’s foreign policy misadventures immediately after 9/11. As much as the need for a “new Pearl Harbour” (i.e: 9/11) is traced to the Neo-Con/Zionist Project for the New American Century, the ‘War on Terror’ paradigm itself is traced back to Netanyahu’s books – International Terrorism: Challenge and Response in 1979 and Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorism in 1995. And that, in one of these books, he even envisioned a terror attack on the World Trade Center.

Never forget… that Netanyahu was quoted as saying that the 9/11 attack was good for Israel. And that, in the months and weeks leading to 9/11, Netanyahu had been in Washington, pushing his doctrines of a War on Terror to US political figures.

Never forget… that, if Bin Laden wasn’t involved in 9/11, then the entire pretext for the US/NATO invasion of Afghanistan was fake, as neither the Taliban nor the Afghan people had anything to do with what happened in New York. And also that neither Saddam Hussein or Iraq, nor Gaddafi and Libya, had anything to do with 9/11 or Al-Qaeda.

Never forget… that ten years after 9/11 and the citing of Al-Qaeda and Islamic terror as the enemy of civilisation (and the reason for going into Afghanistan), the US, Britain and NATO were actively allied to Al-Qaeda and various Islamist terror groups as part of the regime-change operations in Libya and Syria: thus rendering the entire pretext and narrative of the ‘War on Terror’ entirely null and void.


These are just some of the things we should never forget about what happened on 9/11. There are many more too, of course: but the general point has been put across here. Of course, the main thing that should never be forgotten is all of the victims and their suffering… both those victims on that particular, horrific morning in New York, and all of the victims of the wars that followed too.

  1. A terrific summary. As someone once said, the problem with 9/11 Truth is not that we know too little, but that we know too much – so it’s easy to get swamped by all the details. Keeping it short and sweet like this provides a handy guide for those new to the subject and makes for a great refresher course too. Btw, I didn’t realise Netanyahu was actually in NY on 9/11 – how did I miss that for 20 years?

    Incidentally I came across this podcast by Abby and Robbie Martin that I found quite interesting. Although it treads rather timidly and keeps clear of endorsing any “crazy conspiracy theories”, it still goes much further than I’d expected and basically promotes the opinion that there is now a renaissance in left-wing 9/11 Truth beginning to take place:


    • Thanks for sharing the link too. Yes, I think people tend to have forgotten or overlooked the curious presence of Netanyahu during these – and other – events. Thanks, WoC.

  2. Ok excellent!

    In fact, I haven’t finished reading the end. lol

    But, I’ll find out when translating [I’m sure the rest makes sense, although I’ll check the news, if there is].

    I translated your article on Afghanistan before.

    A little late, just finished translating this one (Superb too, say I had to do it for a long time).
