A False Flag for War
False Flag for War by Amy Lux, Lone Lantern Chicago 9/11 Truth Activists
What happened on September 11, 2001, the day New York City was attacked? Do you have unanswered questions?
The official story has been questioned by members of the US Congress and retired high-ranking officers of the US military. Even Max Cleland, Senator assigned on the Commission to investigate 9/11, resigned, condemning the entire exercise as a “scam” and “whitewash”. Others who questioned 911 include a former high-ranking adviser to the George W. Bush administration, former ministers to the German, British and Canadian governments, the commander-in-chief of the Russian air force, and the presidents of Iran and Venezuela. Not all of these people agree fully with each other, but all would normally be considered newsworthy. Yet mass media remain silent about most of their statements, and grant coverage to comments of actor Charlie Sheen. The best questions I have seen posed come from true Americans, high ranking military officers, American pilots, and those who were in the WTC that morning and escaped. Below, I have cut and pasted several notable comments from the website www.patriotsquestion911.com
Was 9/11 an update of the Pentagon-approved “Operation Northwoods” plan for conducting self-inflicted, false-flag terror attacks in the United States, and blaming them on a foreign enemy? Operation Northwoods was a conspiracy plan, proposed within the US. The plan called for CIA or other operatives to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Castro-led Cuba in 1962. This operation is especially notable in that it included plans for hijackings of planes and bombings followed by the use of phony evidence that would blame the terrorists. The plan stated, “The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from the rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.” Operation Northwoods was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and sent to the Secretary of Defense. The main proposal was presented in a document entitled “Justification for US Military Intervention in Cuba “. The previously secret document was originally made public in November 1997, by the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board, a federal agency overseeing the release of government records related to Kennedy’s assassination.

Many states have sponsored attacks on their own people, fabricated the cause for war, created their own enemies of convenience, and sacrificed their own citizens for reasons of state. The Nazis masterminded the torching of the Reichstag – the German Parliament buildings – on February 27th, 1933, one week before a national election. That they did so is a historical fact. Within hours, Hitler and his henchmen designate the Communists as the villains, and label them terrorists. The government promises proof but never provides it. They blamed it on single communist who was found bound and naked in an alley behind the Reichstag. The big lie is used by Hitler to sow fear. He bullies the German President to sign a decree suspending seven main articles of the German Constitution. The claim is that the Fatherland is under threat. Ensuing arrests and murders terrorize anti-Hitler dissent. Even though Hitler did not win the popular vote in the election, he assumes power. He is then free to launch pre-emptive strikes against other countries and wage a world war sold as patriotic. The ultimate result for Germans is calamitous: 600,000 civilians dead, seven and half-million homeless – their country broke and in ruins. The Reichstag fire was a major turning point. See the article “The Great Conspiracy” at http://www.greatconspiracy.ca/pdfs/TGC_transcript_GOIssue9.pdf. This article discusses the beginning of the Vietnam War and the mock war hijacking exercises the U.S. government was playing out the morning of 9/11.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, a plane was hijacked, and the FAA was notified at 8:15AM, 32 minutes before it crashes into the WTC. Even though the cockpit transponders were cut off there is a mediating control. The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) “provides our nation its eyes and ears in space.” It operates a system of reconnaissance satellites to provide real-time monitoring of objects in the skies. On the morning of 9/11/01 the NRO headquarters in Chantilly, VA, were evacuated as part of a “plane into building” drill. The scenario involved a small corporate jet crashing into one of the campus’ four towers.
Other exercises were going on the morning of the attack. A large-scale military training exercise called Global Guardian was in full swing. Global Guardian is an annual exercise involving Stratcom (the US Strategic Command), the US Space Command, and NORAD, in which a threat to North American airspace is simulated. Stratcom directed the exercise from Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, where our President landed Air Force One late in the afternoon of 9/11. There is evidence that the date of the 2001 Global Guardian exercise was changed to correspond with the terrorist attack. NBC News military analyst William Arkin, in his book “Code Names”, gives the date of the exercise as October 22-31, 2001. The military newspaper Space Observer reported in a March 2001 article that the exercise was scheduled for October of that year.
Another military exercise scheduled for the morning of September 11 was Northern Vigilance which had pulled a significant number of North American fighter aircraft into Canada, Western and Northern Alaska in a ‘mock Cold War hijack’ exercise. Another drill, “Vigilant Guardian” was a hijack exercise involving the insertion of false radar blips onto radar screens in the Northeast Air Defense Sector command post. In addition, General Richard Myers tells of “Vigilant Warrior”, which was a live-fly hijack drill being conducted on the morning of 911.
With only eight remaining fighter aircraft in the Northeast sector, and they had to be dispatched in pairs, they were dealing with a confirmed 22 blips on the radar screen indicating possible hijacks and they couldn’t separate the war game exercises from the actual hijacks.
In June, 2001 Dick Cheney initiated new instructions for military intervention in the case of a hijacking. These new instructions state that, for all responses, the Department of Defense must get permission directly from Donald Rumsfield, the Secretary of Defense. ( Joint Chief of Staff Document: http://dtic.mil/doctrine.jel/cjcsd/cjcsi.3610_01a.pdf, and http://www.911review.com/means/standdown.html). Between September 2000, and June, 2001, we launched fighter aircraft on 67 occasions to chase aircraft that moved significantly off the flight plan, as standard procedure. Donald Rumsfield was working in the east side of the Pentagon on the morning of September 11th. He told Larry King on the December 5th talk show that he knew nothing about the World Trade Center attack until 15 minutes before the Pentagon was hit, and even then wasn’t told that a plane was headed for the Pentagon (Secretary Rumsfeld Interview with Larry King, CNN, DefenseLINK, 12/5/01). All of the video surveillance equipment surrounding the Pentagon had been mysteriously shut off.
The lead American Airlines pilot that was flying the Pentagon plane, Charles Burlingame, was a graduate of the US Naval Academy, a retired Naval captain who flew F-4 Phantom jets, who left the Navy to join American Airlines in 1979. He remained in the Naval reserves, and frequently worked in the Pentagon. In 2000, Burlingame worked on a counter-terrorism simulation in which a plane is flown into the Pentagon building. The Pentagon Mass Casualty project (codenamed Pentagon Mascal) was a mock terrorist contingency exercise that was held in the Office of the Secretary of Defense from October 24 – 26, 2000. The exercise required emergency response teams, members of the defense protective services, and U.S. government officials to conduct emergency simulations. In the experiment, emergency personnel were required to hold radio and other communications devices to increase their operational readiness for quickly transporting massive casualties from the disaster area to medical centers. Toy trucks were used as miniature models to simulate emergency transport vehicles for victims.
For 40 years, prior to 9/11/01, an FAA rule had allowed commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in the cockpit. Just two months before 9/11/01, the FAA rescinded the rule. Senior FAA officials also ordered all 9/11 cockpit tapes to be destroyed. These tapes were mangled, cut and destroyed by an FAA Manager, a violation of federal law. Media ended up with recordings from cell phone companies of the urgent calls from civilians aboard giving live coverage of their terror.
The closest thing we can find to an official plan for what happened on 9/11 comes from an organization called the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), co-founded in early 1997 as a non-profit neoconservative think tank. The official blueprint of the organization was written by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfelds deputy), Jeb Bush, Lewis Libby (Cheney’s Chief of Staff) and Dov Zakheim. The document, entitled Rebuilding America’s Defenses, written in September 2000, detailed how Bush’s cabinet intended to take military control of the Gulf region whether or not Saddam Hussein was in power. It says “while the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein.” The PNAC blueprint, on page 51, stated that the process of transforming the US into “tomorrow’s dominant force” is likely to be a long one in the absence of “some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor”. It also “discourages advanced industrial nations from challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role” and describes peacekeeping missions as “demanding American political leadership rather than that of the UN”, and that “even should Saddam pass from the scene, US bases in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait will remain permanently… as Iran may prove as large a threat to US interests as Iraq has”. It spotlights China for “regime change”, saying “it is time to increase the presence of American forces in SE Asia”. The 9/11 attacks allowed the US to press the go button for a strategy in accordance with the PNAC agenda which would otherwise have been politically impossible to implement.
Dov Zakheim, an ordained Rabbi, is one of the lesser known PNAC signatories. Dov was appointed Undersecretary of Defense and Comptroller of the Pentagon in May 2001. Before becoming the Pentagon’s money-manager, he was the Chief Executive Officer at System Planning Corporation, a defense contractor specializing in electronic warfare technologies including the command transmitter system (CTS) for remote-controlled aircraft systems. In an internal conversation discussing the use of the technology, “to make sure a plane met its target instead of relying on some supposed suicide hijackersa who might bail out at the last minute, remote control technology can be used. You are not to argue for this point nor to disagree with it.” The system could be used to hijack airliners from hijackers and bring them home safely. One operator can fly as many as 8 jets at at time.
For an interesting discussion about Dov Zakheim and other Israeli connections to government agencies and private corporations related to the inner workings of 9/11 see the film “911 Missing Links” http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=martial+law+911&emb=0&aq=f#q=911missinglinks&view=2&emb=0. The section on Dov Zakheim and remote controlled aircraft systems is at 1:31:45 (one hour 31 minutes and 45 seconds into the movie, you can fast forward). The primary goal of this film is to pin the attacks on the Jewish state. I do not believe in this theory. Israel’s economic interests in the Middle East are the same as many throughout America. At 18:17 the film details an Israeli think tank’s plan to take over the Middle East, almost identical to PNAC’s position paper, stating they were written by the same authors.
After looking into more history on Israel and Palestine, I find it interesting that the only reason Israel thinks it has a stake in this land is because, in the bible, the book of Genesis, Chapter 35, verse 9, Jacob was told by God in Egypt that he would thereafter be called “Israel” (in some references this term means son of God). God told Israel that his sons would multiply and produce great Kings, and that he would give them a land of their own to govern. So, if I say God told me I deserved real estate, I could just then grab it? Mind you, they lived in an area with very little water and fertile land, overpopulation caused massive famine and mental disorientation. Starting at 1:02:45, the 911 Missing Links film gives factual connections of several people with dual U.S/ Israeli citizenship, many who hold high level positions in our government and are tied to the Israeli crime network.
Dov Zakheim, as the Pentagons Comptroller, was in charge of the Pentagon’s money. On September 10th, 2001 Donald Rumsfield announced a “war on waste” after an internal audit found that the Pentagon was missing $2.3 trillion in unaccounted assets. On September 11th, this was as good as forgotten. According to a report by the Inspector General, the Pentagon cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends.
The warnings of 9/11 and proof of prior knowledge:
A CIA briefer interrupted his own vacation and flew to the Presidents Texas ranch to personally deliver an Aug. 6, 2001 memo titled “Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US.” President Bush replied: “All right. You’ve covered your ass, now”, and continued with his afternoon fishing. On the way into the school in Florida just minutes before the attacks, one of his security detail officers asked the President “do you know what’s going on in New York City this morning?” The President replied, “of course I do”.
San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown received a warning from his airport security late Monday evening, just hours before the attack, not to fly in the morning. Salman Rushdie, who is under the continuous protection of Scotland Yard, was prevented from flying on September 11th, and Jim Pierce, cousin of President Bush, was scheduled to attend a conference on the 105th floor of the South Tower, where his company’s New York offices were based. But the conference was moved across the street to the Millennium Hotel.
Israeli Intelligence, the Mossad, knew that the attacks were going to take place, knew that the World Trade Center were targets. They issued an urgent warning to the CIA in August. They warned Zim America, an Israeli shipping company located in the WTC, which broke its lease and moved out the week before 9/11, costing them $50,000. German intelligence, the BMD, warned the CIA and Israel that middle eastern terrorists are planning to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture.
In August, 2001, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his staff to warn the US government “in the strongest possible terms” of imminent attacks on airports and prominent buildings. Putin was interviewed by MSNBC on September 15, 2001.
On September 7, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, signed Executive Order 01-261: “I hereby declare that a state of emergency exists in the state of Florida…The Authority to suspend the effect of any statute or rule governing the conduct of state business, and further authority to suspend the effect of any order or rule of any government entity…The authority to seize and utilize any and all real or personal property as needed to meet this emergency…The authority to order the evacuation of any or all persons from any location in the State…The authority to regulate the return of the evacuees to their home communities…I hereby order the Adjutant General to activate the Florida National Guard for the duration of this emergency.” (http://proliberty.com/observer/20011008.htm ).
Despite all of the evidence of government warning of possible airliner hijacking into buildings, here is our Presidents response to reporters about foreknowledge “We knew they hated us, but there was uh uh nobody in our government at least, and I don’t think the prior government could envision flying airplanes into buildings, on such a massive sc/ale” Martial Law 911 video, http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=martial+law+911&emb=0&aq=f# (1:18:40). The National Security Advisor, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, our expert on war and foreign relations, defended the administration’s inaction in repelling the attack, claiming that she didn’t “think anybody could have predicted that these people … would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile. We had never heard, why that is a ridiculous conspiracy theory to say that”.
One of the chief tools used by government insiders planning false flag terrorist attacks is staging exercises or drills at the exact same time and place as the actual event. The London train bombings of July 7, 2005, and the Madrid train bombings of March 11, 2004 were identical in their planning and implementation. In each, an anti-terrorist exercise was created whereby trains were possibly going to be blown up with bombs. On the exact same day, at the exact same time that the anti-terrorist drill took place, actual bombs blew up. Each of the accused bombers in Madrid had links to the head of the bomb squad of the Spanish Security Services. In London, a British MI5 agent brought the conspiracy plans to the public’s attention and spent 6 months in jail and lost his job. Another Brit from London talked, Peter Powers, the head of Visor Consultants, the crisis management consulting firm which was working with the City to get response teams ready for terrorist events. His firm planned the entire train bomb drill. You can listen to Peter Powers talk in the movie Terrorstorm http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=terrorstorm&emb=0&aq=f# (38:07). Actuarial firms calculated the statistical probability of an actual terrorist event to occur on the exact same date as the anti-terrorism exercise in a 10 year period as one in 300 trecedillion. For perspective, a trecedillion has 42 zeros… 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
