9/11 was Strictly Speaking, a Coup d’etat?

A A source of news and information for those brave enough to face facts.
Home Search ICH     Question Everything!   Purpose and Intent of this website: 9/11 was strictly speaking a coup d’état? By Thierry Meyssan At the end of 2001, I published a series of articles on the attacks of September 11, 2001, followed by a book in March 2002 [1]. The book was translated into 18 languages and opened a worldwide debate questioning the veracity of the official US narrative. However, the international press refused to discuss my arguments and launched a campaign accusing me of “amateurism” [2], “conspiracy theory” [3], and “denial” [4]. Above all, the US authorities and their supporters reduced my work to the first few pages of my book: the challenge to the official version of the attacks. But it is a work of political science aimed at denouncing what these false-flag attacks would make possible: the surveillance of Western populations and the endless war in the wider Middle East. In this article, I will therefore review what has been learned about these attacks over the past 20 years, but more importantly, I will check whether my predictions from 2002 were correct or not. The black hole of 9/11 If we are asked what happened on 9/11, we will all visualise the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. We have forgotten many other things, such as the insider trading in the shares of the affected airlines, the fire in the Old Eisenhower Building, or the collapse of a third tower in the World Trade Center. What is most astonishing is that almost no one remembers that at 10am, Richard Clarke triggered the ’Continuity of Government Plan’ [5]. At that very moment, President Bush and Congress were suspended from office and placed under military protection. President Bush was taken to an air base in Nebraska where the CEOs of the upper floors of the Twin Towers had been since the previous evening [6]; and Congress to the Greenbrier megabunker. Power fell into the hands of the “Continuity Government”. It was in the Raven Rock Mountain megabunker (’Site R’) [7]. Power was not returned to the civilians until the end of the day. Who exactly were the members of this ’Continuity Government’ and what did they do during the time they were in power? We still don’t know. The members of Congress who asked the question were not allowed to hold a session of their assembly on the subject. Please understand that until we have clarification, the 9/11 controversy will continue. The procedure implemented on September 11 was designed by President Eisenhower at a time when nuclear war was feared. If he, the Speakers and a majority of Congress were killed, there would be no constitutional powers. The military would logically have to assume the continuity of government. But this was obviously not the case on that day. Not one elected official was dead. The transfer of power was therefore unconstitutional. It was strictly speaking a coup d’état. No Advertising – No Government Grants – This Is Independent Media Get Our Free Newsletter The attacks of September 11 In my book and afterwards, I hypothesised about what really happened on that day. But this is irrelevant to my point. The people who perpetrated this crime wanted to create a shock comparable to Pearl Harbor, as the members of the Project for a New American Century wrote earlier, so that they could change the way the United States lives and functions. So they told us a tall tale that we swallowed without flinching. But : • To this day, there is no evidence of the 19 designated hijackers on board the hijacked planes. They were not on the lists of passengers on board the planes released by the airlines on the same day. The videos of the hijackers at the airport were not taken in New York, but at other airports where they were transiting. • To date, there is no evidence that the 35 telephone communications between passengers on the hijacked flights and the ground existed [8]. This applies both to the conversation attributed to the brave passenger who allegedly attacked the hijackers on UA 93, and to the conversation testified to by US Solicitor General Theodore Olson with his wife on AA 77. In contrast, at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui (accused of being the 20th hijacker who would not have boarded the plane), the FBI testified that none of the planes had phones in the armrests, that passengers should have used mobile phones, that cell phones at the time could not work at altitudes above 5,000 feet, and that the records provided by the phone companies did not show any of the communications mentioned – including that of Attorney General Olson. • To date, there is no physical explanation for the collapse of three of the World Trade Center towers onto their own footprints (i.e. vertically). The Twin Towers were hit by two planes, but were not shaken. However, their fuel would have run down the vertical beams and melted them. A third tower was destabilised by the fall of the first two to its side. It too would have collapsed, not laterally, but vertically. It should be noted that no explanation was given for the lateral explosions heard by the firemen and widely filmed, nor for the vertical beams that were severed and not melted; two pieces of evidence attesting not to an accidental but to a controlled demolition. It should also be noted that no collapse of skyscrapers has ever been observed, either before or after 9/11, following a large-scale fire… and that no one has learned the lessons of this attack and therefore changed the way such buildings are constructed to prevent such a catastrophe. Finally, the photographs taken by firefighters of “pools” of molten steel and those taken by FEMA (the disaster management agency) of the melting rocks in which the foundations were built are inexplicable according to the official version. • To date, there is no evidence that an airliner hit the Pentagon. Already the next day, the fire brigade had given a press conference at the Pentagon during which they had attested that they had not found anything suggestive of a plane. The authorities, who had issued a vengeful statement against my book, announced that they had collected many parts of the plane and reconstructed it in a hangar. Then they stopped communicating on this subject. Moreover, the families of the passengers of the plane in question, after having been scandalised by my words, changed their minds when they were given back funeral urns, claiming to have identified the bodies of their relatives thanks to their fingerprints (which would have been totally destroyed during fires at those temperatures). Some refused to sign the confidentiality agreement offered to them in exchange for large compensation payments. Widespread surveillance of Western populations In the days following the attacks, the Bush Administration had Congress vote on an anti-terrorist code, known as the USA Patriot Act. This is a very large piece of legislation that had been drafted over the previous two years by the Federalist Society (of which Solicitor General Theodor Olson and Attorney General John Ashcroft were members). It suspends the Bill of Rights in cases of terrorism. At the time of the formation of the United States, there were two opposing groups. The first, around Alexander Hamilton, drafted the Constitution to set up a system comparable to the British monarchy, but with governors instead of nobles. The second, around Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, only accepted the Constitution after it had been amended to prevent the use of Reason of State. These 10 amendments are called the Bill of Rights. Their suspension challenges the balance on which the United States was founded. It gives power to the first group, the descendants of the ’Pilgrim Fathers’, the Puritans exiled from England. President Bush is a direct descendant of one of the 41 signatories of the “Mayfower Pact” (1620). In order to implement the USA Patriot Act, a new department was created, the Homeland Security Department, which brings together various existing agencies. It has a political police force capable of spying on any citizen. According to the Washington Post, which revealed this in 2011, it has hired 835,000 civil servants, 112,000 of whom are secretly employed [9], making the United States the most Orwellian country on the planet. The way this department works was revealed in 2013 by Edward Snowden. Snowden not only provided information about the NSA’s foreign eavesdropping system, but also about domestic mass surveillance in the US. He now lives as a political refugee in Russia. This system, although less documented, is gradually spreading to all Western states, through the ’Five Eyes’ [10] and Nato. The “endless war”: from 9/11 to the fall of Kabul A month and a half after the attacks, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld created the Office of Force Transformation, which he entrusted to Admiral Arthur Cebrowski. The idea was to change the very function of the Armed Forces. The Rumsfeld/Cebrowski doctrine [11] is a reform as important as the creation of the Pentagon after the 1929 crisis. This time, it is about adapting to financial capitalism. From now on, the United States will no longer try to win wars, but on the contrary to make them last as long as possible; this is what President Bush’s expression “endless war” means. Their aim will be to destroy local state structures so that natural wealth can be exploited without having to endure political control; as Colonel Ralph Peters summed it up: “Stability is America’s enemy” [12]. This is exactly what has just happened in Afghanistan. The war started there just after 9/11. It was only supposed to last a few weeks, but it never stopped. The Taliban victory that we have just witnessed was organised by the United States itself in order to make the conflict last even longer. That is why President Biden has just said that the US did not go into Afghanistan to build a state, as it did in Germany and Japan after the Second World War. Joe Biden had, during his meeting in Geneva with Vladimir Putin, rejected the endless war. However, he has just relaunched it, aligning himself with the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski doctrine like Barack Obama. None of the conflicts that began after 9/11 have ended. On the contrary, instability has taken hold in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. One can of course call these conflicts “civil wars” and accuse their leaders of being “dictators”, or explain nothing at all, but the fact remains that they were stable before Western intervention and that Gaddafi’s Libya and Aoun’s Lebanon were US allies when their misfortunes began. Vice President Cheney had set up a secret group in the White House to design the development of the National Energy Policy. He was convinced that oil would run out in the medium term. This is why the United States destroyed states in order to be able to exploit their oil in the long term, but not now. Moreover, the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski doctrine states that one should not fight globalised powers such as Russia and China. On the contrary, they should be given access to the natural resources they have conquered, but they should be forced to pay royalties to the US in order to exploit them. By publishing a number of internal US military reports, Julian Assange has not revealed any sensitive information. But all these documents show that the Pentagon has never been interested in winning the post-9/11 wars. Assange was persecuted to the point of insanity. To wage these wars, the Pentagon secretly created clandestine Special Forces: 60,000 soldiers without uniforms [13]. They are capable of assassinating anyone in any country without leaving any trace. Bob Woodward revealed the “Global Attack Matrix” operation, decided three days after the attacks [14]. Wayne Madsen published the names of the first victims in Papua, Nigeria, Indonesia and Lebanon [15]. Conclusion All my predictions have been verified over the last 20 years. Unfortunately, few people have seen how the world has changed. Most refuse to make the connection between the revelations of one side and those of the other and to see the responsibility of the Western democracies for the crimes committed in the wider Middle East. The problem remains the same: we cannot admit that the criminal is close to us.   Thierry Meyssan Political consultant, President-founder of the Réseau Voltaire (Voltaire Network).

Perpetrated and still unanswered and unpunished by the regime and its acolytes, Democrats as well as the glorious GOP. It didn’t take long after Eisenhower, good or bad, issued his warning about the forces who really hold power in the US would take the reins of the government in their hands. That’s the issue and the reason why and how 9/11 took place, because the previous coup of Nov. 23 in Dallas, was successful. Even master Trump, in an irreverent confession during his 2016 campaign said:”9/11 was an inside job”. It’s not enough to know the truth but most importantly to draw the proper conclusion about events that have taken place.
US “Democracy” will never admit or atone for those crimes against its own people, only a radical popular uprising will do it.
Let’s pray for that glorious event to happen and help the process along until it takes place.

COVID & WALL STREET’S NEFARIOUS ACTS

It is not the purpose of this writing to evidence the lethal nature of covid-19 confirmed by Dr. Robert Young i, nor to show the limited medical treatment allowed // demanded by the government to be detrimental to our health. If the reader wants evidence of these conditions, they may review the non-exhaustive sampling of links in the footnotes.ii This writing is oriented to visualize a specific application for which the covid pandemic appears to have been adapted.

William Blum has documented the IMF and WB’s lengthy progression to dominate nations in KILLING HOPE; CIA AND U.S. MILITARY INTERVENTIONS.iii John Perkins in CONFESSIONS OF ECONOMIC HIT MAN, and in interviews, identifies Wall Street as using the IMF and WB to cover their global conquests and install puppet rulers in controlled nations. Douglas Valentine in CIA AS ORGANIZED CRIME claims the methodology used by Wall Street is being seen in the USA.

Early methods used by Wall Street to gain control of a nation include sending CIA agent Kermit Roosevelt with two suitcases of cash into Iran in 1953 to hire locals and create civil disturbances. The coup overthrew the elected Mogadishu and returned the tyrannical Shah to the peacock throne. Wall Street oil moguls seized control of the nationalized British Petroleum oil fields as agreed in advance. It is claimed this became the MO for Wall Street.

Perkins relates the contemporary MO is to let national loans balloon into default. Goldman Sachs arranged a mere $3 billion loan for Greece which went into bankruptcy. Greece is now governed by the Troika which includes the IMF. Any government action requires approval of the Troika. They have seized pensions, bank accounts, government assets, terminated government employees, and imposed poverty. It appears the covid pandemic has offered a global opportunity to expand this mischief.

The IMF and WB are covers for Wall Street’s nefarious acts. The 15% minimum ownership by Wall Street guarantees conformance to WS desires. Covert WS manipulation for other public acts assumes reliance upon assistance from financial cohorts. It is the MSM, hospitals, employers and government bureaucrats that have endlessly hyped the public to fear the covid panic. BlackRock, Vanguard, and the six mega-corporations have equity ownership in all MSM, hospital chains, universities, airlines, and other business firms. Any CEO who resist intimidation to hype the covid pandemic and demand their employees be jabbed, or their students be jabbed, can be quickly replaced. The infiltration of government agencies to enforce globalist goals appears evident by a lack of prosecution of favored bureaucrats, their nominations for positions, and the persecution of outliers.

In March 2020, when the pandemic was barely developed, the IMF offered credit to any nation distressed by covid. 86 nations accepted the offer of loans with the condition that a lockdown would be imposed and the contract would remain secret [but the amounts are posted on the IMF website ?]. More than $250 billion has been loaned and many of the initial loans have been expanded. The requirement of a lockdown appears to make default inherent and instills global fear. Global conquest appears imminent. No contract with the U.S. is shown.

The IMF will issue more than a trillion in SDR in 2021, in increments to avoid congressional oversight, to further set-the-hook for foreclosure. Ref. https://stateofthenation.co/?p=74206.

Funds to assist in Wall Street’s buying equity in private businesses [ BlackRock, Vanguard, etc.] and for other globalist projects is theorized to have been illegally obtained through endless expansion of the national debt and the assistance of the Federal Reserve system. Ref. https://genzconservative.com/the-federal-reserve-…. ; Federal Reserve for Dummies

The use of the covid scam to promote the Wall Street global agenda appears obvious. The fracas in Afghanistan is believed to be a deliberate ploy to detract the public from the covid Damocles sword.

But he is correct in claiming that once it happened, Washington used it to institute the Patriot Act and Homeland Security Department for the purpose of surveillance and control of America, just as J. Edgar Hoover did with the FBI in 1908 and Franklin D. Roosevelt did with the The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in 1938. https://www.history.com/topics/cold-war/huacand

Many countries copied them.

Towards the end of his essay above, Thierry Meyssan states something well worth examining.

“Their aim will be to destroy local state structures so that natural wealth can be exploited without having to endure political control; as Colonel Ralph Peters summed it up: “Stability is America’s enemy” “

Marx warned that Capitalism was inherently unstable with boom and bust, depressions and recessions caused by the capitalist ideology of exploitation of workers (their main market) and finite resources. Meyssan shows that it is deliberate.

Most of the Middle Eastern market has been destroyed. Some of the world’s most valuable resources are unobtainable even by US corporations. Workers even in America are impoverished. So it is not about exploiting resources. It is about preventing others doing so. It is not about bringing freedom and democracy, not even to its own people. That was always a lie. It is about control. And the Military Industrial Complex continues to prosper.

I was not aware on 9/11, 3 influential, powerful Americans, colluded to write the following in Foreign Affairs Magazine 3 years earlier.

In December 1998, Former US Defence Secretary Ash Carter, US Undersecretary of Defence John Deutch and Philip Zelikow, Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, collaborated to publish this in Foreign Affairs Journal,

“A successful attack with weapons of mass destruction could certainly take thousands, or tens of thousands, of lives. If the device that exploded in 1993 under the World Trade Center had been nuclear, or had effectively dispersed a deadly pathogen, the resulting horror and chaos would have exceeded our ability to describe it.

Such an act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America’s fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949.

Like Pearl Harbour, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures, scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and use of deadly force. More violence could follow, either further terrorist attacks or U.S. counterattacks.”

I find it curious it happened just like that 3 years later, and one of the Authors was able to control what information the 9/11 Commission was able to see?

I posted this online just over 10 years ago,
