The Washington Post on ‘lunatic’ 9/11 ‘conspiracy theorists’

An editorial in the Washington Post yesterday slammed Japanese member of parliament Yukihisa Fujita because he “seems to think that America’s rendering of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, is a gigantic hoax.” His “ideas” about the terrorist attacks “are too bizarre, half-baked and intellectually bogus to merit serious discussion.”

Fujita, the editorial added, is a member of “the lunatic fringe” who “have spawned a thriving subculture of conspiracy theorists at home and abroad”, and “his views, rooted as they are in profound distrust of the United States, seem to reflect a strain of anti-American thought”. The piece closes by suggesting that the “fact-averse” Fujita should be removed from office.

Among Fujita’s “bizarre” views are “that shadowy forces with advance knowledge of the plot played the stock market to profit from it”, “the fantastic idea that eight of the 19 hijackers are alive and well”, and “that controlled demolition rather than fire or debris may be a more likely explanation for at least the collapse of the building at 7 World Trade Center”.

Yet while serving out a hit piece against the global “9/11 Truth” movement, it is in fact the editors of the Washington Post who are demonstrably “fact-averse”.

It happens to be an uncontroversial fact that in the days just prior to the attacks, there was a dramatic increase in trade on put options, and what made this unusual spike even more mysterious was that it was observed  only in relation to companies directly affected by the attacks, including United Airlines, American Airlines, and Morgan Stanely Dean Witter & Co. (which occupied 22 floors of 2 World Trade Center).

That this occurred was in fact mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report, which reported that the federal investigations into the suspicious trading concluded that it was all “innocuous”. Many of the trades on the airline companies, for instance, were traced to a “single U.S.-based institutional investor with no conceivable ties to al Qaeda”.

In other words, the report acknowledges that the suspicious trades did in fact occur, but dismisses this as evidence of foreknowledge because the investigation didn’t lead to the proper predetermined culprits. This is illustrative of the kind of standard the 9/11 Commission employed throughout its so-called “investigation”.

The “fantastic” idea that the identity of the hijackers named by the FBI is in question is an interesting case. At the time, the Washington Post had also subscribed to this “half-baked” notion. On September 20, 2001, under the headline “Some Hijackers’ Identities Uncertain”, the Post reported, “FBI officials said yesterday that some of the 19 terrorists who carried out last week’s assault on New York and Washington may have stolen the identities of other people, and their real names may remain unknown.”

Among the evidence for this, the Post cited “Saudi government officials” as having determined “that at least two of the terrorists used the names of living, law-abiding Saudi citizens”. The man in the picture of one of the alleged hijackers, the Post reported, was Salem Al-Hazmi, who was actually alive and well, according to Gaafar Allagany, the chief of the Saudi Embassy’s information office in Washington. The real Al-Hazmi’s “passport was stolen by a pickpocket on a trip to Cairo three years” before. Another of the alleged hijackers was Abdulaziz Al-Omari, who, Allagany said, was also alive and “an electrical engineer in Saudi Arabia.”

“The uncertainty”, the Post continued, “highlights how difficult it may be to ever identify some of the hijackers who participated in the deadliest act of violence on American soil. Most of the hijackers’ bodies were obliterated in the fiery crashes.”

The Washington Post was not the only mainstream media outlet to report on the uncertainty over the hijacker’s identities. It was widely reported elsewhere, both in the U.S. and international media.

The U.K.’s Guardian, for instance, reported on September 21 under the headline “False identities mislead FBI” that “The FBI acknowledged yesterday that some of the terrorists involved in the attacks last week were using false identities”, with regard to Al-Hazmi and Al-Omari.

FBI acknowledgment of this was also reported by the BBC the same day under the headline “FBI probes hijackers’ identities”. The BBC also reported on September 22 under the headline “Hijack ‘suspect’ alive in Morocco” that Waleed Al-Shehri, another alleged hijacker, the “same Mr Al-Shahri” whose photo the FBI had released as being among the terrorists, “has turned up in Morocco, proving clearly that he was not a member of the suicide attack.”

On September 23, under the headline “Hijack ‘suspects’ alive and well”, the BBC reported that yet “Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker … has turned up alive and well” and that “The identities of four of the 19 suspects … are now in doubt.” FBI Director Robert Mueller also “acknowledged … that the identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt.”

The London Telegraph similarly ran a story on September 23 entitled “Revealed: the men with stolen identities”.

The Washington Post itself ran a follow-up article on September 25 entitled “Some Light Shed On Saudi Suspects”, reporting that “U.S. investigators believe they have positively identified 15 of the 19 hijackers”, but that the identities of the other four were still in question.

On September 27, even while releasing the official list of hijackers along with their photos, the FBI confirmed that uncertainty remained over some of the identities. Mueller acknowledged that the FBI was still “determining whether when these individuals came to the United States these were their real names, or they changed their names for use with false identification in the United States; that false identification being used up to and on the day of September 11th, and that false identification used to purchase the tickets, and thereby being the name on the manifests of the planes that went down.”

Yet, despite these facts, neither the Washington Post nor any other mainstream media outlet has ever offered any follow-up reports explaining whether and how this uncertainty was finally resolved. The FBI has never clarified this matter to the public. The 9/11 Commission didn’t so much as even address the question, even to attempt to clear up the matter.

And so, it remains an uncontroversial fact, as far as the public is concerned, that the identify of at least several of the hijackers remains in question. Why the government has refused to clarify this issue, and why the media now report anyone who doesn’t have a short memory about 9/11 as being part of a “lunatic fringe” are also open questions that warrant some kind of explanation.

Finally, there is the matter of the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. Many people might be surprised to learn that not only two towers fell on September 11. In fact, a third skyscraper also collapsed that day neatly into its own footprint. It is also an uncontroversial fact that proper investigative procedures for such disasters, particularly in cases where a crime has been committed, were contemptuously ignored in the case of the WTC.

For starters, the evidence from the crime scene in the form of the remains of the three buildings was removed and immediately destroyed. Destruction of evidence is itself a crime, and yet that is what happened. Other standard procedures were also ignored, such as testing for any kinds of accelerants that may have been responsible for the building failures.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released what is supposed to be the conclusive report on the building collapses. Yet, the explanation it provides, too, is inadequate, to say the least. The computer models NIST offers for the collapse of WTC 7, for instance, look just like one would expect them to, for the kind of collapse NIST says occurred there. You first see one load-bearing column fail, leading to the progressive failure of other columns until the entire structure has eventually crumbled.

    Yet again a clear blow to the ‘official’ version of 9/11 events. The US establishment can make wars in context with the attacks but they cannot force the world to subscribe to their fabricated stories. The lies are crumbling and very soon we’ll see Washington conspiracies lying naked in the public.

  • Bill Zimmerly

    If you find out who put the explosives in Building 7 you will find the real culprits behind 9/11. But that means you will have to acknowledge the existence of Building 7 and its subsequent demolition at 5:20 in the afternoon. So far mainstream media does not want to discuss any facts surrounding this matter or the explosions heard throughout the day by hundreds of witnesses. Go Mr. Fujita, you are doing a better job investigating this than American politicians or press have done to date.

  • Bill Gregory PHD

    Yes, indeed, how much longer can the press also conspire against the truth ?
    And what of the anthrax attacks ? Another unsolved terror attack from the Bush/CHeney regime.

  • jojo

    all this is old news. what’s new, Alex jones asked a simple question this week toABC–after any terror attack ,why does the media within an hour blame it on 911 truthers? No responce!-Reason is,media knows that no Arabs were envolved and the bad guys are }sreal firsters. The thing about 19 hi-jackers, there is no record of any of these men boarding the planes. So please stop indirectly referring that there were hi-jackers. On Sept 11/01 almost 10 years,even if the real culprits are exposed,American’s venom has weakened.
    Just as 45 years has passed in the USS Liberty Killings–}sreal did it–hardly now, no-one (media)cares to go after Israel.
    All 4 planes were diverted to another country and crew/passengers gassed and animal feed. Recall the Airport manager destoried all CCTV security videos and he never was arrested and still has his job.
    ABC should interview Rudy Jiulania and the then NY FireFighter’s union boss why no grievnce was put forth againist Larry Silverstein.
    Note: after 9 years, I came across something of importance which is rarely reported–on Sept!!, Rummesfled and dozens of CIA agents were seen gathering the plane’s debre and just handy,dumpsters were just readily available days before. Removal of evidence is a crime :^/

    The Washington Post has long been suspected of being a government disinformation agent. The US government is concerned about Fujita not only because he is a 9/11 skeptic, but also because he is a member of a Japanese political party that questions the continuation of Japan’s role as US puppet state.
    Fujita, in other words, is a double threat to the Empire.

  • Floda

    A few weeks after 911 I recall seeing a picture of a severely damaged Jet engine surrounded with Police “Crime Scene’ tape lying in a New York’s Murray street. The engine was identified by Boeing trained technicians as belonging to a B737, quite small, roughly the size of a trash bin, whereas the Airliners which allegedly hit the WTC were supposedly B767, their engines the size of a small truck!

    I have always believed the Aircraft which rammed into the WTC were empty and remotely controlled with homing beacons placed in the buildings taking over in the last minutes.

    The planes were intended to created a spectacular diversion. The buildings were expertly demolished by explosives. WTC1 and 2 were the MONA LISA of expert controlled demolitions. WTC7 (which was never mentioned in the Keane commission of inquiry) went wrong. The owner himself admitted on television, that they demolished it.

    If you want to find out who did 911, go ask him, start by pulling his fingernails out. He’ll sing like a canary. After that, start arresting and hanging the rest of these murderous swindlers. After a quick fair trial of course!

    Don’t forget to hang the Media Bosses, they are just as guilty as the swine who planted the explosives which killed 3,000 people in broad daylight. Arguably even more so. Hang the lot of ‘em and start all over again.

  • http://ain'tnospider ehswan

    On 911 we were attacked by elements within our own government. Of that there can be no doubt. Since then we have been continually lied to by ALL major media including such “alternative” media as Freedom Now. All those who should have informed us have disinformed us, including such luminaries of the left as Noam Chomsky. We have become a nation of cowards, those that lead and those that follow. Our nation is corrupt and broken and cannot be fixed. It’s like an old car that has a rusted out rotten frame. There is no fixing it. Time to get rid of it and get a new one! Have a NICE day.

    Ex-Italian President:
    Intel Agencies Know
    9/11 was an Inside Job

    Man who set up Operation Gladio
    tells Italy’s largest newspaper
    that attacks were run by CIA and Mossad.

    Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, Francesco Cossiga, has gone public on 9/11, telling Italy’s most respected newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies.

    Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of the country in 1985.

    Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare breed — an honest politician — and led the country for seven years until April 1992.

    Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio — a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they coined “false flag operations”, terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

    Cossiga’s revelations contributed to an Italian parliamentary investigation of Gladio in 2000, during which evidence was unearthed that the attacks were being overseen by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.

    In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”

    Cossiga’s new revelations appeared last week [early December, 2007] in Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper, Corriere della Sera. Below appears a rough translation.

    [Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Al Qaeda September [attack] on the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11th, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe … now know well that the disastrous attack had been planned and realized by the American CIA and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under suspicion the Arab Countries and in order to induce the western powers to participate … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.

    Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9/11 in 2001, and is quoted in Webster Tarpley’s book as stating that “The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.”

    Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies is highly unlikely to be mentioned by any establishment media outlets, because like the hundreds of other sober ex-government, military, air force professionals, allied to hundreds more professors and intellectuals — he can’t be sidelined as a crackpot conspiracy theorist.

      @Mihail

      Hi,

      I also suspect that the Prodi government fell thanks to Jerusalemme and Washington because the Foreign Affair Minister, Mr. D’Alema was pro-Palestine.

      Now, Italy has Berlusconi who is an American puppet, will vote against the Goldstone Report (war in Gaza).

      Obviously, Israel is a country withing a country (USA) and both want to rule the world.

  • Eric Lindblad

    My assessment is not of an engineering nor chemical analytical basis, as in examination of the architecture or debris of the New York buildings, however from a juridical science basis, I informed the Iran-Contra committees of the US involvement in the assassination of the UN nominated peace negotiator for the Iran-Iraq war, the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme, shot in February of 1986, nothing was released to the public on this matter by the congressional committees, Lee Hamilton was on these committees, later on the Sept.11 commission, then there was my meetings with Swedish government officials in Autumn of 1988, wherein were discussions of US involvement in the murder of Olof Palme, shortly after I was in Stockholm for such discussions, the Lockerbie incident occurred, wherein among the passenger list is found the name of Bernt Carlson the [Swedish] deputy UN nominated peace negotiator for the Iran-Iraq war.

    Therefore, if one is to believe the 2001 US federal administration regarding their presentation of the sequence of events of September 11, such then administration officials must explain in Court that there is no basis for the following assumptions, 1). that simply by proximity of events that there was a relation of my discussions in Stockholm to the then thereafter bombing of the Pan AM flight 103 (Lockerbie) incident, that Mr. Bernt Carlson was in his capacity as the former deputy peace negotiator the target of the Lockerbie incident, 2). that Lee Hamilton had not faithfully addressed information presented to the Iran-Contra committees regarding the assassination of the Swedish prime minister Olof Palme due to his capacity as UN nominated peace negotiator for the Iran-Iraq war.

    If one cannot explain these (above) matters in Court, there is no reason to accept the credibility of 2001 US administration statements on the sequence of events of September 11, as contra-posed to UK/US involvement in a former plane crash, that of Lockerbie, to assassinate the deputy peace negotiator (B.Carlson) and obfuscate such assassination’s intentions as among a labeled as “terrorist incident”, and that of the credibility of the September 11 commission members.

      It’s shocking that this story has barely gotten national attention, but it should as soon as folks can forget Enron and Campaign Finance Reform.
      In the current war against terrorism, it’s beginning to look more and more like Katherine Smith ,
      a former Tennessee DMV employee was killed to cover up something
      – possible Arab terrorists active on U.S. Soil.

      It goes back to last Thursday, when 5 illegal immigrants were nailed buying drivers licenses in Memphis from Katherine Smith..
      They were from New York City, and all reportedly of Arab descent. Authorities say these drivers licenses were purchased for $1000.00 each.
      They were taken to jail and held there without bail. Smith on the other hand, was released on her own recognizance.
      No jail, no bail, nothing for her except “come back Monday”.

      Problem is: She never got to court. She died one day prior.

      Last Sunday Morning, at about 12:15 AM, Smith’s car was found against a utility pole on Hwy 72, totally engulfed in flames.
      Looked like an accident at the beginning.

    All the arguments in this article notwithstanding, it is fantastic to suppose that the US government (or elements within it) would knowingly destroy a major hub of American business, send the airline industry into a months-long tail dive, incur billions of dollars of loss to the US industry, and all this in the name of what exactly? It just does not add up.

    • http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com Jeremy R. Hammond

      It’s not “fantastic” that people could drive a business right into the ground in order for a few people to profit from it. If you need examples, look at Enron or the recent financial crisis.

      9/11 served as the pretext for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and for implementing policies sought prior to 9/11 for which public consent would not have been possible, such as the “transformation” of the military into a force for global hegemony, warrantless surveillance of Americans, and so on.

      What doesn’t add up is the official conspiracy theory. We know the CIA knew Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaf al-Hamzi were al Qaeda associates (al-Midhar suspected of involvement in the USS Cole bombing) and that one or both had obtained a visa to enter the U.S. at a time when “the system was blinking red”. And yet the CIA withheld this information from the FBI, State Department, and INS. This is all admitted and non-controversial.

      There is a precedent in that the Blind Sheikh, the spiritual leader of the terrorist cell that bombed the WTC in ’93, had multiple visas (at least 6) approved not by the State Department, but by CIA officers working at the consulate in Jeddah. This is also admitted and non-controversial, and squares with testimony from former consulate officer Michael Springman, who said that the CIA would bring terrorists into the U.S. for training during the Soviet-Afghan war, in which the CIA operated alongside Osama bin Laden in his organization that evolved into al-Qaeda. That same organization had an alias of Al-Khifa, which was a recruitment center associated with the Blind Sheikh and his terrorist cell.

      Moreover, the FBI had foreknowledge of the ’93 plot, and at least two informants in the cell. One of those informants was the Sheikh’s bodyguard, who recorded his debriefs with his FBI handlers. Those recordings, presented in court, showed that a plan to replace an ingredient in the bomb with an inert substitute, thus allowing the FBI to make the bomb a dud and perform a sting operation, was killed by a senior FBI official. The cell was allowed to go forward with building a real bomb, which was then used to bomb the WTC.

      Set conspiracy theories aside. None of this is controversial information. It’s all on the record, all documented, all admitted. There are reasonable questions that many people have about 9/11. What is clear is that the government, rather than providing answers to those questions, has deliberately sought to cover up and hide information about what really happened from the public.

      Why?

      It was merely a false flag, to allow the neocons in power, to go to war with Iraq, and strip the US citizens of its rights to privacy, security, and due process.
      Now we have endless war, allowing the Military Industrial Complex to parasitically vacuum enormous amounts of money from US taxpayers, while destroying the middle east, to seize the vast oil fields for ExxonMobil, BP, and Royal Dutch Shell.
      It was a perfect evil plan.

    Another excellent, well-researched & constructed piece, Mr. Hammond.

    Yes, the Facts should matter.
    The word ‘Fact’ seem preferable to ‘Truth’ since Truth implies something more nebulous.

    Am working to compile a brief list of significant, but little-known, 9/11 Facts.
    Something that can be given/sent to reporters, editors, publishers, govt officials, as well as workaday Americans especially (not to exclude non-Americans, just that Americans need to know the facts & take responsibility). Hope to coordinate with you at some point.

    The only lunatic’s I see and hear are the apologist’s who will continue to drown out voices of reason such as the Washington Post and all such like ilk on the right and the left who try and demonize people who don’t buy into the crap they feed us. 9/11 was well planned both by the Bush Administration and those who would profit by an attack on the ‘Twin Towers’. No one has been able to convince me that me that the people in power at the time; that is Condy Rice, Dick Chaney, Don Rumsfield, and the national idiot know as ‘W’, did not all know that this event on 09/11/2001 would take place. They all knew it and let it happen. They needed a ‘Pearl Harbor’ and they got their it. They let it happen and the apologist’s can “HOWL” all they want. I don’t care what ‘Snake News” says, or the “false prophet Beck’ says. Bush and Chaney and Rice and Rumsfield are to blame for 9/11. And I call on President Obama to investigate the whole Bush administration for ‘Criminal Malfeasance’. The American public needs to know the truth and not ‘Apology’s’. And if my assumption is right which I believe it is, then “Let justice be served”.
