(This is a one-page version of the proof on this website so that you can print it out)
Welcome . . . and congratulations for your willingness to look at the proof about 9-11.
No matter how painful the facts raised by this site may be, we — as patriotic Americans and people of good faith — must look at the evidence for ourselves.
This site is wholly non-partisan, and not intended to criticize or to bolster any political party. The sources cited come from across the political spectrum. The issues raised transcend political differences, and are vital to conservatives, liberals and moderates; they affect your life whether you are a republican, democratic, independent, or non-voter.
Skeptical of theories which are not based on cold, hard facts? We encourage your skepticism, and applaud you for examining the facts for yourself. There are many bizarre conspiracy theories floating around about 9/11, which are spread either out of ignorance or for malicious purposes.
Think that no credible, high-level officials doubt the official version? Very well — you might wish to start by jumping ahead to this page.
Think only a handful of people question the official version of 9/11? Okay — take a look at this national poll.
Think the 9/11 Commission already investigated and reported what happened on 9/11? Fine — skip ahead to this page.
Think that 9/11 is a partisan issue?
Please read this if you're a conservative who believes that 9/11 conspiracies are something cooked up by liberals and the Democrat party to weaken the conservative movement or to undermine the President's ability to lead the country in this dangerous time.
Please read this if you're a liberal who doesn't think that anyone credible questions 9/11.
Think that a 9/11 conspiracy would have been too big to keep secret? Or that you would have heard more about these facts on the news if they were true? Or that questioning 9/11 is insulting to America, or to the victims and their families, or that it gives aid and comfort to the enemy? We understand your concerns — and we will address those too.
This website provides links to credible sources, so that you can easily check the information for yourself (whenever possible, we cite mainstream news sources; at times we cite credible witnesses whose story is only covered by smaller publications).
Just read and click. And then make up your own mind (if you have any trouble viewing the linked video, audio or printed sources, click here to see instructions.)
If you get angry, afraid or overwhelmed by the information contained on this website ... Keep in mind that millions of Americans have felt these same things when they started to look at the facts, but they hung in there to get the full story. If they did it, you can too.
BACKGROUND: WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
A variety of current and former high-level officials have recently warned that the current administration is attempting to gain as much power and control over the American public as possible, and is using fear to accomplish that goal.
FBI agents, Time Magazine, MSNBC newsman Keith Olbermann and The Washington Post have all stated that the administration has issued terror alerts based on scant intelligence in order to rally people around the flag when the administration was suffering in the polls. This implies — as an initial matter only — that the administration will play fast and loose with the facts in order to instill fear for political purposes.
But a government's attempt to increase power, or capitalize on fear, doesn't mean that a government would actually turn a blind eye to a known attack or itself carry out a fake terror attack in order to obtain its goals, right?
Well, this has happened before in foreign countries. For example, it is widely known that the Nazis, in Operation Himmler, faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.
And it has now been persuasively argued — as shown, for example, in this History Channel video — that Nazis set fire to their own government building and blamed that fire on others (if you have trouble playing the clip, it is because the website hosting the clip requires you to download the clip before playing it). The fire was the event which justified Hitler's seizure of power and suspension of liberties.
This sounds nuts, right? You've never heard of this "false flag terrorism", where a government attacks its own people then blames others in order to justify its goals, right? And you are cynical of the statements discussed above? Please take a look at these historical quotes:
"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector." - Plato
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - U.S. President James Madison
"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death". - Adolph Hitler
"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.
"The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened". - Josef Stalin
But NOT the U.S.
It is logical to assume that, even if other countries have carried out false flag operations (especially horrible regimes such as, say, the Nazis or Stalin), the U.S. has never done so.
Moreover, recently declassified documents show that in the 1960's, the American Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan to blow up AMERICAN airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. If you view no other links in this article, please read the following ABC news report; the official documents; and watch this interview with the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC's World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.
Why Does This Matter?
Even if America has, in the past, considered or undertaken false flag operations, it has never done so in modern times. Right? We will consider this question below.
In the meantime, we invite you to read what the following very smart people are saying:
BUT THE 9/11 COMMISSION SHOWED THAT SEPTEMBER 11TH WAS A REAL TERRORIST ATTACK, RIGHT?
Whether or not you believe that governments carry out "false flag" terror, you might reasonably assume that the 9/11 Commission investigated September 11th, and concluded that Osama Bin Laden and his group of terrorists were solely responsible.
Unfortunately, a quick look at the government's investigations reveals that -- not only has there never been a real investigation -- but the behavior of government representatives in willfully obstructing all attempts at investigation comprises evidence of guilt. Specifically, in all criminal trials, evasiveness, obstruction, and destruction of evidence all constitute strong circumstantial evidence that the accused is guilty or, at the very least, not to be believed. 9/11 is no different.
A very well-documented book by a distinguished professor shows that the 9-11 Commission was a whitewash. According to law professor Richard Falk of Princeton, the author of this book "establishes himself, alongside Seymour Hersh, as America's number one bearer of unpleasant, yet necessary, public truths" (Seymour Hersh, as you might know, is the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter who uncovered the Iraq prison torture scandal). See a synopsis of the book here; and a summary of a portion of the book here.
Former President of the U.S. Air Force Accident Investigation Board, who also served as Pentagon Weapons Requirement Officer and as a member of the Pentagon's Quadrennial Defense Review, and who was awarded Distinguish Flying Crosses for Heroism, four Air Medals, four Meritorious Service Medals, and nine Aerial Achievement Medals, is a member of a group which doubts the government's version of 9/11
Current U.S. Congresswoman, former senior CIA analyst, former Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon, Ford, and Carter, former US Ambassador and Chief of Mission to Iraq, former Deputy Director to the White House Task Force on Terrorism, and former US Department of State Foreign Service Officer (as well as a who's who of liberals and independents) jointly call for a new investigation into 9/11
Indeed, the military had actually drilled for aerial attacks with planes:
The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the military air defense agency responsible for protecting the U.S. mainland, had run drills for several years of planes being used as weapons against the World Trade Center and other U.S. high-profile buildings, and "numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft". In other words, drills using REAL AIRCRAFT simulating terrorist attacks crashing jets into buildings, including the twin towers, were run.
On the very morning of 9/11/01, five war games and terror drills were being conducted by several U.S. defense agencies, including one "live fly" exercise using REAL planes. Then-Acting Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B. Myers, admitted to 4 of the war games in congressional testimony -- see transcript here or video here (6 minutes and 12 seconds into the video).
In addition, a December 9, 2001 Toronto Star article (pay-per-view; reprinted here), stated that "Operation Northern Vigilance is called off. Any simulated information, what's known as an 'inject,' is purged from the screens". This indicates that there were false radar blips inserted onto air traffic controllers' screens as part of the war game exercises.
Which scenario is more likely from a strictly logistical perspective:
(1) An outsider sitting in a cave defeating the air defense system of the sole military superpower; or
(2) Someone like Cheney -- who on 9/11 apparently had full control over all defense, war game and counter-terrorism powers -- rigging and gaming the system?
Remember that for the attacks to have succeeded, it was necessary that actions be taken in the middle of the war games and the actual attacks which would thwart the normal military response. For example, Cheney watched flight 77 approach the Pentagon from many miles out, but instructed the military to do nothing (as shown in the testimony of the Secretary of Transportation, linked above). Could Bin Laden have done that?
And air traffic controllers claim they were still tracking what they thought were hijacked planes long after all 4 of the real planes had crashed. This implies that false radar blips remained on their screens after all 4 planes went down, long after the military claims they purged the phantom war-game-related radar signals. Could Bin Laden have interfered with the full purging of false radar blips inserted as part of the war games? In other words, could Bin Laden have overridden the purging process so that some false blips remained and confused air traffic controllers? The answer is clear.
Therefore, it is statistically much more likely that Cheney and/or other high-level U.S. government and military officials pulled the 9/11 trigger than that Bin Laden did it. At the very least, they took affirmative steps to guarantee that the hijackers' attacks succeeded.
A former guidance systems engineer for Polaris and Trident missiles and professor emeritus, mathematics and computer science at a university concluded that the Twin Towers "were brought down by planted explosives."
A 13-year professor of metallurgical engineering at a U.S. university, with a PhD in materials engineering, a former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Senior Staff Member, is calling for a new investigation of 9/11
Indeed, Larry Silverstein, the leaseholder of the World Trade Center, said in a PBS documentary that Building 7 was "pulled" on September 11th. "Pulling" is a construction industry term for "intentionally demolishing", as shown in this PBS interview discussing the demolition of world trade center building 6 many weeks after 9/11.
Moreover, there is evidence that substantial explosions occurred well BELOW the area impacted by the planes, and -- according to some witnesses -- they occurred BEFORE the plane had hit:
How could the fire damage from airplanes or their jet fuel have caused such extensive explosions over so many floors over such a long timeframe below the airplane impacts? Do you remember that most of the fuel spilled outside of the towers in those dramatic fireballs, and the rest supposedly lit the paper, rugs and other office contents of the twin towers on fire?
Given these facts, how could fires or jet fuel have caused the events described above by credible eyewitnesses?
In addition, there are many eyewitness accounts of phenomena consistent with the use of explosives in the world trade center buildings:
On September 11th, none of the New York City rescue people, architects, or engineers believed that the World Trade Centers would collapse. No steel-frame modern high-rise building had ever before collapsed due to fire.
THE SECRET SERVICE AND CHIEF OF STAFF (How Did They Know?)
The Secret Service acted in a manner contrary to all standard training and procedures on 9-11. See statement by the former director of the U.S. "Star Wars" space defense program and senior air force colonel (point number 8); statement of a former senior CIA analyst and frequent presenter of the Presidential Daily Briefings (near the bottom of the article); brief summary of argument.
(this testimony is confirmed
here and here. See also this comment by the retired high-level CIA analyst mentioned above).
So how was a hijacked plane able to slam into such a heavily-defended building long after it had become apparent that a terrorist attack was being waged against America with hijacked airplanes, and given that the military was actually tracking the airplanes? Why did the Vice President of the United States, in charge of counter-terrorism on 9/11 (see this Department of State announcement; this CNN article; and this essay), watch the plane approach from many miles away but say “the orders still stand”, when such orders led to the plane not being intercepted?
There are additional questions about the attack on the Pentagon. However, we believe that these questions are largely distractions from the vital questions raised above.
We believe that it is very possible that when the videos are finally released, they will clearly show that the hijacked Boeing 757 was flown in a standard manner by the hijackers and crashed into the Pentagon. However, according to those who have watched the government videos released to date, such footage is not conclusive. While we are not convinced that anything other than a Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon, The government should release all of the relevant videos to give a full accounting.
Other claims have also been made about the Pentagon (see, for example, the claims made here). However, we believe that the questions regarding the government intentionally allowing the aircraft to hit the Pentagon, discussed at the top of this webpage, are the most important.
Finally, we promised to address the idea that a 9/11 conspiracy would be too big to keep secret. This article addresses that concern.

Congratulations . . . you have taken the first step -- getting informed. To stay informed,check this website frequently, as new evidence is constantly added (look for new links in blue).
The implications of this information may at first feel overwhelming. Millions of Americans have felt this also, but have gotten past their shock and started to take action. Indeed, the true facts of 9/11 have spread from a handful of people to almost half of the American population (and higher percentages in other parts of the world) in a few years. Momentum is on our side . . . and if we work to spread the facts, those who know the truth about 9/11 will soon be in the majority, and justice will prevail.
Where to start?
If you are good with people, we recommend that you talk with as many people as possible face-to-face. It is especially helpful to speak with (and give a CD to -- see below) people who have alot of friends and contacts, people who are in positions of influence (such as ministers, rabbis, community and business leaders), or people who are great at persuading others. Studies show that these are the type of people who make social changes happen, so let's focus on them.
