911 Timeline - PARTE 2

These unexplained "spikes" in the seismic data tends to lend credence to the theory that perhaps a massive explosion(s) in the lowest level of the basements where the supporting steel columns of the WTC met the bedrock caused the collapses.

A "sharp spike of short duration" is how seismologist Thorne Lay of University of California at Santa Cruz told AFP an underground nuclear explosion appears on a seismograph.

The two unexplained spikes are more than twenty times the amplitude of the other seismic waves associated with the collapses and occurred in the East-West seismic recording as the buildings began to fall.

In the basements of the collapsed towers, where the 47 central support columns connected with the bedrock, hot spots of "literally molten steel" were discovered. Such persistent and intense residual heat, 70 feet below the surface, could explain how these crucial structural supports failed.

Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction of Flushing, New York, told AFP that he saw pools of "literally molten steel" at the World Trade Center. Tully was contracted on September 11 to remove the debris from the site.

Tully called Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI) of Phoenix, Maryland, for consultation about removing the debris. CDI calls itself "the innovator and global leader in the controlled demolition and implosion of structures." Loizeaux, who cleaned up the bombed Federal Building in Oklahoma City, arrived on the WTC site two days later and wrote the clean-up plan for the entire operation.

AFP asked Loizeaux about the report of molten steel on the site. "Yes," he said, "hot spots of molten steel in the basements." These incredibly hot areas were found "at the bottoms of the elevator shafts of the main towers, down seven [basement] levels," Loizeaux said. The molten steel was found "three, four, and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed," Loizeaux said. He said molten steel was also found at 7 WTC, which collapsed mysteriously at 5:20 on September 11th.

Construction steel has an extremely high melting point of about 2800 Fahrenheit (1535 Celsius). Asked what could have caused such extreme heat, Tully said, "Think of the jet fuel."

A way to prove that explosives had blasted the supporting steel columns of the Twin Towers would be to examine fragments from them among the debris for evidence of what metallurgists call "twinning". While steel is often tested for evidence of explosions, despite numerous eyewitness reports of explosions in the towers, the engineers involved in the FEMA-sponsored building assessment did no such tests.

The WTC debris was removed as fast as possible and no forensic examination of the debris was permitted by the FBI or any other government agency. Almost all the 300,000 tons of steel from the Twin Towers was sold to New York scrap dealers and exported to places like China and Korea as quickly as it could be loaded onto the ships, thereby removing the evidence.

The magazine Fire Engineering, a respected journal of firefighting for 125 years, which publishes studies of catastrophic fires, criticized the American Society of Civil Engineers and FEMA investigations as "a half-baked farce." Fire Engineering editor WiIliam A. Manning wrote in the January issue: "...the structural damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel in themselves were not enough to bring down the towers." Why is such there disparity in opinion within the ranks of the fire-engineering community?

The immense clouds of dust and apparent disintegration of the 425,000 cubic yards of concrete of the World Trade Center cause me to question the MIT account of events. Describing the ruins, television evangelist Dr. Robert Schuller said that "...there was not a single block of concrete in that rubble." One observer described the scene "as if some high-energy disintegration beam or laser had been focused on the towers and pulverized the concrete into minute particles of ash and dust." The 110-ten-story World Trade Center reduced to dust by jet fuel?

Dr. Michael Baden, New York state's chief forensic pathologist and an expert in pathology said in September that most of the victims' bodies should be identifiable, because the fires had not reached the 3200F for 30 minutes necessary to incinerate a body. At a November press conference, Dr. Charles Hirsch, the chief medical examiner, told grieving relatives that many bodies had been "vaporized." Are we to believe that the people killed on 9/11 were "vaporized" at 1700 F?

The World Trade Center smoldering pits of molten steel burned for exactly 100 days, despite the constant spray of water being applied. The fires were finally reported extinguished on December 19.

Also, the collapses of the south tower at 9:59:04 took only 10 seconds while the collapse of the north tower at 10:28:31 took only 9 seconds, this is only slightly more than a free fall from the same height, indicating that there was very little resistance. Yet the floors themselves are quite robust, each one is 39" thick; the top 4" is a poured concrete slab, with interlocking vertical steel trusses underneath. This steel would absorb a lot of kinetic energy by crumpling as one floor fell onto another. So how did both of the towers fall so quickly?

In a newly release audio, two of New York City’s Bravest are heard to have made it up to where United Airlines Flight 175 impacted, the 78th floor. Their voices where calm, they explain what was needed to help the many causalities and to put out the two small fires that they discovered. The type of fire that these two NYC Firemen describe does not seem to jive at all with the inferno that is blamed for melting the support beams and bringing down the first steel high-rise or skyscraper ever.

Also, Louie Cacchioli 51, another NYC firefighter, assigned to Engine 47 in Harlem, has stated on September 11, 2001: "We were the first ones in the second tower after the plane struck. I was taking firefighters up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate workers. On the last trip up a bomb went off. We think there were bombs set in the building. I had just asked another firefighter to stay with me, which was a good thing because we were trapped inside the elevator and he had the tools to get out."

"There were probably 500 people trapped in the stairwell. It was mass chaos. The power went out. It was dark. Everybody was screaming. We had oxygen masks and we were giving people oxygen. Some of us made it out and some of us didn't. I know of at least 30 firefighters who are still missing. This is my 20th year. I am seriously considering retiring. This might have done it."

When cameraman and Jules Naudet arrived at WTC tower one along with other crews of NYC Firemen and entered the building's ground floor lobby, they were to a one completely puzzled, actually astonished, to find significant and widespread damage to the entire lobby area; although not of a deep, structural kind. Moreover, nowhere was there any indication whatsoever of an incendiary-type explosion or any kind of fire in this area.

Yet the incredible number of blown-out windows and other extensive though rather superficial damage throughout the lobby area was profoundly perplexing to these experienced professional firefighters in relation to the impact of the plane eighty stories above. As one put it: "The lobby looked like the plane hit the lobby!"

Other reports, from firemen, have said that the FBI’s offices in NYC that were on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th floors of the north tower of the WTC were totally destroyed, presumably by bombs.

The Twin Towers Were Deliberately Demolished: http://911research.wtc7.net/talks/towers / http://wtc7.net/

110) 10:00 a.m.: Bill Wright is flying a small plane when an air traffic controller asks him to look around outside his window. He sees United Airlines Flight 93 three miles away - close enough to see the United Airlines colors. Air traffic control asks him the plane's altitude, and then commands him to get away from the plane and land immediately. Wright saw the plan rock back and forth three or four times before he flew from the area. He speculates that the hijackers were trying to throw off the attacking passengers.

111) 10:00 a.m.: The NRC tells all nuclear power stations to go to the highest level of alert.

112) 10:01 a.m.: The FAA orders F-16 fighters to scramble from Toledo, Ohio. Although the base has no fighters on stand-by alert status, it manages to put fighters in the air 16 minutes later, a "phenomenal" response time - but still 10 minutes after the last hijacked plane has crashed.

One interesting aspect is that NORAD has explained that it didn't scramble fighters from bases nearer to the hijacked planes because they only used bases in the NORAD defensive network (a mere 7 bases in the entire US). Yet this Toledo base wasn't part of that network, so why weren't planes in this base and other bases scrambled an hour or more earlier? Could it be that they were scrambled earlier, and that it was one of these F-16's that tailed Flight 93? While it hasn't been reported in the media yet, note this recent claim by a seismologist that there was a sonic boom in Western Pennsylvania at 9:22. Could that have been a fighter tracking United Airlines Flight 93?

113) 10:02 a.m.: After a review of radar tapes, a radar signal of United Airlines Flight 93 is detected near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

114) 10:03 a.m.: An unconfirmed report of a fire at the State Department in Washington D.C. -- Later confirmed not true. 115) 10:03 a.m.: According to the FBI, the cockpit voice recorder stops and United Airlines Flight 93 crashes near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in Somerset county, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

116) 10:04 a.m.: Johnstown-Cambria County Airport reports United Airlines Flight 93 is 15 miles south.

117) 10:06:05 a.m.: According to seismic data, United Airlines Flight 93 crashes near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in Somerset county, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. This is also 124 miles or 15 minutes away at 500 MPH from Washington D.C. An eyewitness reports seeing a white plane resembling a fighter jet circling the site just after the crash.

The F-16's from Langley AFB arrived in Washington D.C at 9:49 a.m. The F-16 has a top speed of 1500 MPH. After the Pentagon gets hit by American Airlines Flight 77 at 9:37, there is only one airliner left in the sky with its transponder signal off, and once again heading directly for Washington D.C., and that is United Airlines Flight 93. Flying at top speed these F-16’s could have intercepted United Airlines Flight 93 within 5 to 8 minutes depending on when they would have left. Why didn’t these F-16’s try to intercept United Airlines Flight 93?

Listen to what a former Pentagon air traffic controller says "All those years ago when I was at the Pentagon, this wouldn't have happened. ATC Radar images were (and are) available in the understructures of the Pentagon, and any commercial flight within 300 miles of D. C. that made an abrupt course change toward Washington, or turned off their transponder and refused to communicate with ATC, would have been intercepted at supersonic speeds within minutes by fighters out of Andrews AFB. Why there were no fighters from Andrews AFB up baffles me. If we could get fighters notified, scrambled, and airborne within about 6 minutes from Andrews AFB then, we could now."

NORAD Press Release: http://StandDown.net/NORADSeptember182001PressRelease.htm

AP Article On NORAD PR: http://www.AttackOnAmerica.net/8MinutesAway.htm

Shortly after 911, a flight controller in New Hampshire ignores a ban on controllers speaking to the media, and it is reported he claims "that an F-16 fighter closely pursued Flight 93... the F-16 made 360-degree turns to remain close to the commercial jet, the employee said. 'He must've seen the whole thing,' the employee said of the F-16 pilot's view of Flight 93's crash."

Numerous eyewitnesses see and hear United Airlines Flight 93 just before its crash:

1) Terry Butler, at Stoystown: he sees the plane come out of the clouds, low to the ground. "It was moving like you wouldn't believe. Next thing I knew it makes a heck of a sharp, right-hand turn." It banks to the right and appears to be trying to climb to clear one of the ridges, but it continues to turn to the right and then veers behind a ridge. About a second later it crashes.

2) Ernie Stuhl, the mayor of Shanksville: "I know of two people -- I will not mention names -- that heard a missile. They both live very close, within a couple of hundred yards... This one fellow's served in Vietnam and he says he's heard them, and he heard one that day." He adds that based on what he has learned; F-16's were "very, very close."

3) Laura Temyer of Hooversville: "I didn't see the plane but I heard the plane's engine. Then I heard a loud thump that echoed off the hills and then I heard the plane's engine. I heard two more loud thumps and didn't hear the plane's engine anymore after that" (she insists that people she knows in state law enforcement have privately told her the plane was shot down, and that decompression sucked objects from the aircraft, explaining why there was a wide debris field).

4) Charles Sturtz, a half-mile from the crash site: The plane is heading southeast and has its engines running. No smoke can be seen. "It was really roaring, you know. Like it was trying to go someplace, I guess."

5) Michael Merringer, two miles from the crash site: "I heard the engine gun two different times and then I heard a loud bang"

6) Tim Lensbouer, 300 yards away: "I heard it for 10 or 15 seconds and it sounded like it was going full bore." Accounts have the plane flying upside down.

7) Rob Kimmel, several miles from the crash site: He sees it fly overhead, banking hard to the right. It is 200 feet or less off the ground as it crests a hill to the southeast. "I saw the top of the plane, not the bottom."

8) Eric Peterson of Lambertsville: He sees a plane flying overhead unusually low. The plane seemed to be turning end-over-end as it dropped out of sight behind a tree line.

9) Bob Blair of Stoystown: He sees the plane spiraling and flying upside down before crashing. It’s not much higher than the treetops. Accounts of a sudden plunge and more strange sounds.

10) An unnamed witness says he hears two loud bangs before watching the plane take a downward turn of nearly 90 degrees.

11) Another unnamed witness sees the plane overhead. It makes a high-pitched, screeching sound. The plane then makes a sharp, 90-degree downward turn and crashes.

12) Tom Fritz, about a quarter-mile from the crash site: he hears a sound that "wasn't quite right" and looks up in the sky. "It dropped all of a sudden, like a stone," going "so fast that you couldn't even make out what color it was."

13) Terry Butler, a few miles north of Lambertsville: "It dropped out of the clouds." The plane rose slightly, trying to gain altitude, then "it just went flip to the right and then straight down."

14) Lee Purbaugh, 300 yards away: "There was an incredibly loud rumbling sound and there it was, right there, right above my head – maybe 50 feet up... I saw it rock from side to side then, suddenly, it dipped and dived, nose first, with a huge explosion, into the ground. I knew immediately that no one could possibly have survived."

15) Linda Shepley: She hears a loud bang and sees the plane bank to the side. She sees the plane wobbling right and left, at a low altitude of roughly 2,500 feet, when suddenly the right wing dips straight down, and the plane plunges into the earth. She says had an unobstructed view of Flight 93's final two minutes.

16) Kelly Leverknight in Stony Creek Township of Shanksville: "There was no smoke, it just went straight down. I saw the belly of the plane." It sounds like it is flying low, and its heading east.

17) Tim Thornsberg, working in a nearby strip-mine: "It came in low over the trees and started wobbling. Then it just rolled over and was flying upside down for a few seconds ... and then it kind of stalled and did a nose dive over the trees."

What sense can be made of all these different accounts? Some say it was flying a couple thousand feet up and suddenly plunged down, some say it was flying extremely low. Turns, climbs, strange noises, flipping, etc. While many of these accounts conflict, virtually all support a missile strike, because of the common theme of noises and a plane struggling to rise and stay in the air. The plunge doesn't seem to be a deliberate thrust of the plane towards the ground, but instead the result of engine failure. Other passenger planes hit by missiles continued to fly for several minutes before crashing. For instance, two Russian missiles hit a Korean Airline 747 in 1983, yet it continued to fly for two more minutes.

118) 10:06 a.m.: and after "Lee Purbaugh is one of at least half a dozen named individuals who have reported seeing a second plane flying low and in erratic patterns, not much above treetop level, over the crash site within minutes of United Airlines Flight 93 crashing. They describe the plane as a small, white jet with rear engines and no discernible markings."

Susan Mcelwain saw a small white jet with rear engines and no discernible markings swooped low over her minivan near an intersection and disappeared over a hilltop, nearly clipping the tops of trees lining the ridge. She saw this less than a minute before the United Airlines Flight 93 crash rocked the countryside.

Dennis Decker and Rick Chaney, Decker speaking: "As soon as we looked up [after hearing United Airlines Flight 93 crash], we saw a midsize jet flying low and fast. It appeared to make a loop or part of a circle, and then it turned fast and headed out." Decker and Chaney described the plane as a Lear-jet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings. "It was a jet plane, and it had to be flying real close when that 757 went down. If I was the FBI, I'd find out who was driving that plane."

Jim Brandt and Tom Spinello both report seeing a small plane with no markings stay about one or two minutes over the crash site before leaving. The FBI later says this was a Fairchild Falcon 20 business jet, directed after the crash to fly from 37,000 feet to 5,000 feet and obtain the coordinates for the crash site to help rescuers. The FBI also says there was a C-130 military cargo aircraft flying at 24,000 feet about 17 miles away, but that plane wasn't armed and had no role in the crash. Was the unmarked jet some kind of reconnaissance plane, and the C-130 a cover story for sending fighters in the area?

122) 10:10 a.m.: The FBI headquarters evacuated.

123) 10:10 a.m.: The Pentagon "E Section" collapses.

124) 10:13 a.m.: Almost 12,000 people are evacuated from The United Nations.

125) 10:15 a.m.: The Palestinian group Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) reportedly takes responsibility for the crashes, but this is quickly denied by a senior officer of the group.

126) 10:15 a.m.: 2,000 planes have landed in the U.S. since the 9:40 FAA order was issued telling all planes in the air to land at the nearest airport.

127) 10:17 a.m.: Two F-16’s from the 180th Fighter Wing in Toledo, Ohio take off, heading east.

128) 10:22 a.m.: In Washington D.C., the Justice and State departments are evacuated, along with the World Bank.

129) 10:24 a.m.: The FAA reports that all inbound transatlantic aircraft flying into the United States are being diverted to Canada.

130) 10:28:31 a.m.: The North Tower of the World Trade Center collapses. The fact that the northern tower withstood much longer than the southern one is later attributed to three facts: the region of impact was higher, the speed of the airplane was lower, and the affected floors had their fire proofing upgraded.

Exactly at the beginning of the collapse of the north tower there was a seismic event that was the equivalent to a magnitude 2.3 earthquake. This unexplained "spike" in the seismic data tends to lend credence to the theory that perhaps a massive explosion(s) in the lowest level of the basement where the supporting steel columns of the WTC met the bedrock that caused the collapse (see 9:59:04 a.m. # 109). The Twin Towers Were Deliberately Demolished: http://911research.wtc7.net/talks/towers / http://wtc7.net/

131) 10:32 a.m.: Cheney called Bush on Air Force One, on its way from Florida to Washington, to say the White House had just received a threat against the plane. The caller had used its code word, "Angel," suggesting terrorists had inside information. Card was told it would take between 40 minutes and 90 minutes to get a protective fighter escort up to Air Force One.

Bush told an aide that Air Force One "is next." He was in an angry mood. "We're going to find out who did this," he said to Cheney, "and we're going to kick their asses."

132) 10:35 a.m.: Washington D.C. Police are reportedly alerted about a bomb in a car outside the State Department. Later reports claim that nothing happened at the State Department.

133) 10:41 a.m.: Air Force One was still en route to Washington when Cheney called again. This time, he urged Bush not to return. "There's still a threat to Washington." Rice agreed, and had told Bush the same thing.

There was little debate or discussion. Cheney was worried the terrorists might be trying to decapitate the government, to kill its leaders. Bush agreed.

134) 10:43 a.m.: Air Force One banks suddenly and sharply to the left, its course now westerly toward Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. It was within easy range, and once there food and fuel could be loaded and the president could have access to its more sophisticated communications systems.

135) 10:45 a.m.: All federal office buildings in Washington D. C. are evacuated.

136) 10.46 a.m.: U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell cuts short his trip to Latin America to return to the United States.

137) 10.48 a.m.: Police confirm the crash of a large plane in Somerset County, Pennsylvania.

138) 10:50 a.m.: Five stories of the Pentagon collapse due to the fire.

139) 10:53 a.m.: New York's primary elections scheduled for today are postponed.

140) 10:54 a.m.: Israel evacuates all diplomatic missions.

141) 10:57 a.m.: New York Gov. George Pataki says all state government offices are closed.

142) 11:00 a.m.: Evacuations are ordered at the tallest skyscrapers in several cities, and major tourist attractions are closed, including Walt Disney World, Philadelphia's Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, Seattle's Space Needle and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.

143) 11:02 a.m.: Giuliani urges New Yorkers to stay at home and orders an evacuation of the area south of Canal Street (see 1:02 p.m. # 159).

144) 11:08 a.m.: Canada shuts down all airports.

145) 11:15 a.m.: There were reports that the F-16’s over Washington had shot something down. There was no later confirmation of these reports.

146) 11:16 a.m.: CNN reports that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are preparing emergency-response teams in a precautionary move.

147) 11:17 a.m.: American Airlines reports it has lost two aircraft. American Airlines Flight 11, a Boeing 767 flying from Boston to Los Angeles, had 81 passengers and 11 crewmembers aboard. American Airlines Flight 77, a Boeing 757 en route from Washington's Dulles Airport to Los Angeles, had 58 passengers and six crew members aboard.

148) 11:26 a.m.: United Airlines reports that Flight 93, en route from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco, has crashed in Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh.

149) 11:40 a.m.: Air Force One arrives at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

150) 11:45 a.m.: From Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, Bush made a brief and informal initial statement to the effect that terrorism on U.S. soil would not be tolerated, stating that "freedom itself has been attacked and freedom will be protected."

151) 11:53 a.m.: United Airlines confirms that Flight 175, from Boston to Los Angeles, has crashed with 56 passengers and nine crewmembers aboard.

152) 11:55 a.m.: The border between the U.S. and Mexico is placed on highest alert, but is not closed.

153) 12:02 p.m.: The Taliban government of Afghanistan denounces the attacks.

154) 12:04 a.m.: Los Angeles International Airport, the destination of American Airlines Flights 11 and United Airlines 175, is evacuated.

155) 12:15 a.m.: San Francisco International Airport, the destination of United Flight 93 is evacuated and shut down.

156) 12:15 p.m.: The Immigration and Naturalization Service says U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico are on the highest state of alert, but no decision is made about closing the borders.

157) 12:16 p.m.: The FAA says all aircraft ordered to land at 9:40 have landed.

158) 12:30 p.m.: The FAA says 50 flights are in U.S. airspace, but none are reporting any problems.

159) 12:36 p.m.: Bush finally appeared on television from the Barksdale Air Force Base conference room, it was not a reassuring picture. He spoke haltingly, mispronouncing several words as he looked down at his notes. He says that all appropriate security measures are being taken, including putting the United States military on high alert worldwide. He asks for prayers for those killed or wounded in the attacks and says: "Make no mistake, the United States will hunt down and punish those responsible for these cowardly acts."

When he got to the last sentence, he seemed to gain strength. "The resolve of our great nation is being tested," he said in even tones. "But make no mistake: We will show the world that we will pass this test."

His remarks were fed by the media pool to the networks, causing a short delay before the nation could see them. The entire statement consisted of just 219 words, and Bush took no questions from reporters.

160) 1:00 p.m.: At the Pentagon, fire crews are still fighting fires. The early response to the attack had been coordinated from the National Military Command Center, but that had to be evacuated when it began to fill with smoke.

161) 1:02 p.m.: New York Mayor Rudolph Guiliani orders an evacuation of Manhattan south of Canal Street (see 11:02 a.m. # 141).

162) 1:27 p.m.: Mayor Anthony A. Williams of Washington, D.C., declares a state of emergency; the National Guard arrives on site.

163) 1:44 a.m.: The Pentagon says five warships and two aircraft carriers (USS George Washington and USS John F. Kennedy) will leave Norfolk, Virginia to protect the East Coast from further attack and to reduce the number of ships in port.

164) 1:48 p.m.: President Bush leaves Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana aboard Air Force One and flies to an undisclosed location. He flies to the Strategic Air Command (SAC) bunker at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska where there were secure facilities that would allow the president to conduct a meeting of his National Security Council in Washington over a video link.

On the plane, Bush expressed his irritation over being away from the White House. "I want to go back home ASAP," he told Card, according to notes of the conversation. "I don't want whoever did this holding me outside of Washington."

Some aides recall Bush saying he would return to Washington later in the day, unless there was some extraordinary new threat. The senior Secret Service agent aboard Air Force One told Bush the situation was "too unsteady still" to allow his return. "The right thing is to let the dust settle," Card said.

165) 2:00 p.m.: Senior FBI sources tell CNN they are working on the assumption that the four airplanes that crashed were hijacked as part of a terrorist attack.

166) 2:15 p.m.: Bush onboard Air Force One en route to the (SAC) bunker at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska talks to Cheney again and schedules a 4 p.m. meeting of his national security staff -- He also talks to New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Gov. George Pataki. "I know your heart is broken and your city is strained and anything we can do, let me know," Bush says.

167) 2:30 p.m.: The FAA announces there will be no U.S. commercial air traffic until noon EDT Wednesday.

168) 2:30 p.m.: Senator John McCain characterizes attack as an "act of war."

169) 2:36 p.m.: En route to Offutt, Bush reached his father on the phone. His aides left him alone in the cabin. "Where are you?" Bush recalled asking his father. The former president said he and his wife, Barbara, were in Milwaukee, on their way to Minneapolis. "What are you doing in Milwaukee?" "You grounded my plane," the former president said.

170) 2:49 p.m.: At a news conference, Giuliani says that subway and bus service are restored in New York City. Asked about the number of people killed, Giuliani says, "I don't think we want to speculate about that -- more than any of us can bear."

171) 2:50 p.m.: Before leaving Air Force One, Bush repeated to his lead Secret Service agent, "We need to get back to Washington. We don't need some tinhorn terrorist to scare us off. The American people want to know where their president is."

172) 2:51 p.m.: The Navy dispatches missile destroyers and other equipment to New York and Washington.

173) 3:06 p.m.: Air Force One landed at U.S. Strategic Air Command at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. Bush was driven the short distance to the U.S. Strategic Command headquarters and was ushered into the secure command center, a cavernous room with multi-story video screens and batteries of military personnel at computer terminals hooked into satellites monitoring activities around the globe. As Bush arrived, they were tracking a commercial airliner on its way from Spain to the United States. It was giving out an emergency signal, indicating it might be hijacked. Very bizarrely, Warren Buffett, (reported to be the second richest person on Earth), has a golf outing for top Corporate CEO’s, at the same Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. What is the likelihood of that happening?

174) 3:30 p.m.: Bush convened the day's first meeting of his National Security Council; the others were piped in by secure video links from various command centers in Washington.

CIA Director Tenet reported that he was virtually certain Usama bin Laden and his network were behind the attacks. A check of the passenger manifests of the hijacked flights had turned up three known al-Qaeda operatives on American Airlines Flight 77, which had struck the Pentagon. Please check out the passenger name manifest list (there are no Arabic names on the list).

One of them, Khalid Al-Midhar, had come to the CIA's attention the previous year, when he traveled to Malaysia and met with a key al-Qaeda suspect in the 2000 terrorist bombing of the USS Cole. The FBI had been informed about Al-Midhar and he had been put on a watch list, but he had slipped into the United States over the summer and the bureau had been looking for him since. Tenet said al-Qaeda was the only terrorist organization in the world that had the capability to pull off such well-coordinated attacks. And, he said, intelligence monitoring had overheard a number of known Usama bin Laden operatives congratulating each other after the strikes. Intelligence monitoring also found five Mossad agents congratulating themselves after the strike. Israel is the only terrorist state in the world that had the capacity to pull off such a well coordinated strike and pin the blame on others. He said information collected before September 11 but only now being processed indicated that operatives had expected something big. But none of it specified the day, time or place of the attacks in a way that would have allowed the CIA or FBI to preempt them.

"Get your ears up," Bush told Tenet and the others. "The primary mission of this administration is to find them and catch them." Cheney voiced concern that more hijacked planes could be out there. Tenet said that since all the attacks had taken place before 10 a.m., that was probably it for the day but there was no way to be sure. FBI Director Mueller expressed concerns that investigators still did not know how the terrorists had penetrated airport security. Tenet said it was essential to know this before flights resumed.

"I'll announce more security measures, but we won't be held hostage," Bush insisted. "We'll fly at noon tomorrow," he said, although it took three more days for commercial flights to resume and then only on a reduced schedule.

Someone mentioned that New York officials had asked whether they should urge people to go back to work the next day, particularly those working in banks and the financial markets. "Terrorists can always attack," Rumsfeld said. "The Pentagon's going back to work tomorrow." People in New York should go back to work, the president said. "Banks should open tomorrow, too."

Bush asked about coming back to Washington, although he had already told his traveling party that he would fly back immediately after the video conference. Cheney suggested the president return and make a statement at Andrews, but the Secret Service still insisted that it was not safe. "I'm coming back," Bush said.

As the meeting was ending Bush said, "We will find these people. They will pay. And I don't want you to have any doubt about it."

In the course of this NSC videoconference, CIA Director George Tenet fed unconfirmed information to Bush. Tenet stated, "He was virtually certain that Usama bin Laden and his network were behind the attacks."

175) 3:55 p.m.: Karen Hughes, a White House counselor, says the pResident is at an undisclosed location, later revealed to be an Air Force base in Nebraska, and is conducting a National Security Council meeting by phone. Vice President Dick Cheney and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice are in the underground bunker at the White House. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is at the Pentagon.

178) 4:06 p.m.: California Gov. Gray Davis dispatches urban search-and-rescue teams to New York City.

179) 4:10 p.m.: Building 7 of the World Trade Center complex is reported on fire.

180) 4:20 p.m.: U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, D-Florida, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says he was "not surprised there was an attack (but) was surprised at the specificity." He says he was "shocked at what actually happened -- the extent of it."

181) 4:25 p.m.: The American Stock Exchange, the Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange say they will remain closed Wednesday.

182) 4:30 p.m.: NORAD releases a statement that denies it had anything to do with shooting down Unites Airlines Flight 93.

183) 4:36 p.m.: The president leaves Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska aboard Air Force One to return to Washington D.C. -- Air Force One now has an F-16 guarding it, off a wing.

184) 5:00 p.m.: The first national television feed of United Airlines Flight 93 crash site -- A long shot, showing a 20 foot wide smoldering hole in the ground. Why does it take almost 7 hours to get anything on the television from this crash?

185) 5:15 p.m.: CNN Military Affairs Correspondent Jamie McIntyre reports fires are still burning in part of the Pentagon. No death figures have been released yet.

186) 5:20:33 p.m.: World Trade Center Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper, collapses. The evacuated building is damaged when the twin towers across the street collapse earlier in the day. The CIA (secretly) and the United States Secret Service had offices in this building. How and why World Trade Center Building 7 fell is still quite the mystery.

The Twin Towers Were Deliberately Demolished: http://911research.wtc7.net/talks/towers / http://wtc7.net/ 187) 5:30 p.m.: CNN Senior White House Correspondent John King reports that U.S. officials say the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania could have been headed for one of three possible targets: Camp David, the White House or the U.S. Capitol building.

188) 6:00 p.m.: Explosions are heard in Kabul, Afghanistan, hours after terrorist attacks targeted financial and military centers in the United States. Afghanistan is believed to be the home of Saudi militant Usama bin Laden, who U.S. officials say is possibly behind Tuesday's deadly attacks. U.S. officials say later that the United States had no involvement in the incident whatsoever.

189) 6:00 p.m.: Iraq announces the attacks are the fruit of "U.S. crimes against humanity" in an official announcement on state television.

190) 6:10 p.m.: Mayor Rudolph Giuliani urges New Yorkers to stay home Wednesday if they can.

191) 6:34 p.m.: Air Force One landed at Andrews AFB. On his way back to the White House, his Marine One helicopter flew over the Pentagon to give him a first-hand look at the damage.

192) 6:40 p.m.: U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld holds a news conference in the Pentagon, noting the building is operational. "It will be in business tomorrow," he says.

193) 6:54 p.m.: Bush arrives back at the White House aboard Marine One and is scheduled to address the nation at 8:30 p.m. The pResident earlier landed at Andrews Air Force Base with a three-fighter jet escort. CNN's John King reports Laura Bush arrived earlier by motorcade from a "secure location."

So, when Air Force One departed Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport at 9:59 a.m. there was no extra military protection (fighter jets) even though there are still hundreds of airliners in the air, and who knew how many of them were hostile or not? Yet, when Air Force One arrives back home at Andrews Air Force Base, there are no airliners in the sky, and now he has a three-fighter jet escort.

Why did every TV station show the fighters protecting him on his way from U.S. Strategic Air Command at Offutt Air Force Base to Andrews Air Force Base, making it seem as if they were always there when they weren't? Why when he needed an escort from the fighters the most they are not there, yet when the skies are empty they are there (see 9:59 a.m. # 108)?

We have captured and saved the video of Bush as he arrives at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, and the take-off of Air Force One with no extra military protection. Go to: http://www.AttackOnAmerica.net/AirForceOneLeavingSarasota.ra

Also, please take a look at the August 30, 2002 BBC article which states: In the immediate aftermath of the terror attacks US fighter planes took to the skies to defend America from any further attacks. Their mission was to protect pResident George W. Bush and to intercept any hijacked aircraft heading to other targets in the US. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/2222205.stm

194) 7:02 p.m.: CNN's Paula Zahn reports the Marriott Hotel near the World Trade Center is on the verge of collapse and says some New York bridges are now open to outbound traffic.

195) 7:17 p.m.: U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft says the FBI is setting up a Web site for tips on the attacks: http://www.ifccfbi.gov He also says family and friends of possible victims can leave contact information at 1 800 331.0075.

196) 7:30 p.m.: The U.S. Government denies any responsibility for reported explosions in Kabul.

197) 7:45 p.m.: The New York Police Department says that at least 78 officers are missing. The city also says that as many as half of the first 400 firefighters on the scene were killed.

198) 8:30 p.m.: Bush addresses the nation, saying, "Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil" and asks for prayers for the families and friends of Tuesday's victims. "These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve," he says. The pResident says the U.S. government will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed the acts and those who harbor them. He adds that government offices in Washington are reopening for essential personnel Tuesday night and for all workers Wednesday.

199) 9:00 p.m.: Bush met with his full National Security Council, followed roughly half an hour later by the meeting with a smaller group of key advisers who would become his war cabinet.

Powell, back in Washington from Peru, described the immediate diplomatic tasks: dealing with Afghanistan and its ruling Taliban, which harbored bin Laden, and neighboring Pakistan, which had closer ties to the Taliban regime than any other nation. "We have to make it clear to Pakistan and Afghanistan this is show-time," Powell said.

"This is a great opportunity," Bush said, adding that the administration now had a chance to improve relations with other countries around the world, including Russia and China. It was more than flushing bin Laden out, he indicated.

Cheney raised the military problem of retaliating against al-Qaeda's home base, noting that in Afghanistan, a country decimated by two decades of war, it would be hard to find anything to hit.

Bush returned to the problem of Usama bin Laden's sanctuary in Afghanistan. Tenet said they must deny the terrorists that sanctuary by targeting the Taliban as well. Tell the Taliban we're finished with them, he urged.

Rumsfeld said the problem was not just bin Laden and al-Qaeda but the countries that supported terrorism-the point of the president's address that night.

Bush said, "We have to force countries to choose."

200) 9:22 p.m.: CNN's McIntyre reports the fire at the Pentagon is still burning and is considered contained but not under control.

201) 9:30 p.m.: Bush brought together his most senior national security advisers in a bunker beneath the White House grounds. It was just 13 hours after the deadliest attack on the U.S. homeland in the country's history. At the war cabinet, discussion turned to whether Usama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network and the Taliban were the same. Tenet said they were. Usama bin Laden had bought his way into Afghanistan, supplying the Taliban with tens of millions of dollars.

202) 9:57 p.m.: Giuliani says New York City schools will be closed Wednesday and no more volunteers are needed for Tuesday evening's rescue efforts. He says there is hope that there are still people alive in rubble. He also says that power is out on the westside of Manhattan and that health department tests show there are no airborne chemical agents about which to worry.

203) 10:49 p.m.: CNN Congressional Correspondent Jonathan Karl reports that Attorney General Ashcroft told members of Congress that there were three to five hijackers on each plane armed only with knives.

204) 10:56 p.m.: CNN's Zahn reports that New York City police believe there are people alive in buildings near the World Trade Center.

205) 11:00 p.m.: The war cabinet finishes it’s meeting and has decided to embark upon a military strike against Afghanistan, and a prolonged war on terror.

206) 11:00 p.m.: There are reports of survivors buried in the rubble in New York making cell phone calls. These rumors, however, are difficult to substantiate.

207) 11:08 p.m.: Bush at the White House: 'We think it's Usama bin Laden'

After the meeting had ended and Bush had returned to the residence, he and his wife were awakened by Secret Service agents. The agents rushed them downstairs to the bunker because of a report of an unidentified plane in the area. Bush was in running shorts and a T-shirt as he made his way down the stairs, through the tunnel and into the bunker. It proved to be a false alarm, and the Bushes returned to the residence for the rest of the night.

Like his father, Bush tries to keep a daily diary of his thoughts and observations. That night, he dictated: "The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today."

"We think its Usama bin Laden." "We think there are other targets in the United States, but I have urged the country to go back to normal." "We cannot allow a terrorist thug to hold us hostage. My hope is that this will provide an opportunity for us to rally the world against terrorism."

208) 11:54 p.m.: CNN Washington Bureau Chief Frank Sesno reports that a government official told him there was an open microphone on one of the hijacked planes and that sounds of discussion and "duress" were heard. Sesno also reports a source says law enforcement has "credible" information and leads and is confident about the investigation.

209) 11:59:59 p.m.: The United Nations International Day Of Peace Ends.

210) On September 11, 2001 and everyday before and after we have let 35,615 of our brother and sisters die from the worst possible death, starvation. Somewhere around 85% of these starvation deaths occur in children 5 years of age or younger. Why are we letting 30,273 of our beautiful children die the worst possible death everyday?

211) The World Trade Center had been attacked before. On Feb. 26, 1993, terrorists detonated a truck bomb in the basement-parking garage. Six people in the underground levels died and thousands of workers spent hours walking down dark, smoky stairwells to evacuate the buildings; the elevators had shut down.

212) Understand United States History: From the USS Maine being destroyed in 1898 (Spanish American War), to the Lusitania being sunk in 1915 (WWI), to our provoking and allowing Pearl Harbor's attack in 1941 (WWII) (the book "Deceit At Pearl Harbor" lays this out very well), to the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964 (Viet Nam) and the 300 babies slaughtered in their incubators in 1991 by Iraq (Desert Storm). When you have finished the above, check out the newly discovered Operation Northwoods files that was signed off by all five members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1962 (uncovered by James Bamford in his book "Body Of Secrets" about the National Security Agency).

Since 1952, the United States has promoted, financed and participated in over 20 separate wars, killing 8 million people for capitalistic corporate profits.

Also, please read the abundant history there is about the United States government secretly using its own people as test subjects.

http://www.testsubjects.net/

There is also another piece of history that is relevant to provoking patriotism in the masses that is akin to September 11, and that is the German Reichstag fire of 1933, which brought in Hitler and the Nazis into power. As Hermann Goering, the commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe for the Nazis, said: "All you have to do is tell the people 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."

A little history about the Bush family: The grandfather of President George W. Bush (Skull and Bones, 1968) was Prescott Bush (Skull and Bones, 1917), and his great grand father was George Herbert Walker. Prescott Bush and George Herbert (Bert) Walker were directors of the London-affiliated New York banking house of Brown Brothers-Harriman and its various fronts, which funded and directed the military-industrial complex behind Hitler and the Nazi revolution. In 1919, George Herbert Walker had organized W.A. Harriman and Company, which merged with the British Brown Brothers in 1931.

In 1924, Averell Harriman (Skull and Bones, 1913) and Fritz Thyssen, the German industrialist who began funding Hitler in 1923, set up the Union Banking Corp in New York to handle funds supplied to it through Thyssen's Dutch bank for American investment. Prescott Bush, who had been an officer of the W.A. Harriman bank since 1926, was a director of the Union Banking Corp from 1934 through 1943. According to government documents, "all of the shares of the Union Banking Corporation were held for the benefit of members of the Thyssen family.

The federal government did not crack down on the Bush-Harriman / Nazi operation until 1942. After the war, Congressional investigation revealed that Fritz Thyssen's German Steel Trust, Germany's largest industrial corporation [which interlocked with Union Banking Corporation] produced a high percentage of Germany's national output of metal products and explosives. Vesting Orders signed by the Office of Alien Property Custodian, Leo T. Crowley, which were published in obscure government record books and kept out of the news, explained nothing about the Nazis involved; only that the Union Banking Corporation was run for the Thyssen family of Germany and / or Hungary -- nationals...of a designated enemy country.

In October 1942, ten months after entering World War II, America was preparing its first assault against Nazi military forces. Prescott Bush was managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman. His 18-year-old son George, the future U.S. President, had just begun training to become a naval pilot. On Oct. 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered the seizure of Nazi German banking operations in New York City, which were being conducted by Prescott Bush. Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, the government took over the Union Banking Corporation, in which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares, all of which were owned by Prescott Bush, E. Roland 'Bunny' Harriman, three Nazi executives, and two other associates of Bush.

By Oct. 26, 1942, U.S. troops were under way for North Africa. On Oct. 28, the government issued orders seizing two Nazi front organizations run by the Bush-Harriman bank: the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. U.S. forces landed under fire near Algiers on Nov. 8, 1942; heavy combat raged throughout November. Nazi interests in the Silesian-American Corporation, long managed by Prescott Bush and his father-in-law George Herbert Walker, were seized under the Trading with the Enemy Act on Nov. 17, 1942. In this action, the government announced that it was seizing only the Nazi interests, leaving the Nazis' U.S. partners to carry on the business.

These and other actions taken by the U.S. government in wartime were, tragically, too little and too late. President Bush's family had already played a central role in financing and arming Adolf Hitler for his takeover of Germany; in financing and managing the buildup of Nazi war industries for the conquest of Europe and war against the U.S.A.; and in the development of Nazi genocide theories and racial propaganda, with their well-known results.

Both Bush and Cheney personally intervened and asked Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) to "limit the congressional investigation into the events of Sept. 11," according to CNN. Bush made the unusual request at a private meeting with congressional leaders on Jan. 29. He asked that the House and Senate intelligence committees look only into "the potential breakdowns among federal agencies that could have allowed the terrorist attacks to occur," rather than conduct a comprehensive inquiry.

Cheney made a similar appeal to Daschle on Jan. 25. "The vice president expressed the concern that a review of what happened on Sept. 11 would take resources and personnel away from the effort in the war on terrorism," Daschle said. "I acknowledged that concern, and it is for that reason that the Intelligence Committee is going to begin this effort, trying to limit the scope and the overall review of what happened."

During the address to the country from Emma E. Booker Elementary School on September 11, 2001 Bush also promised a full investigation into 911. Well here we are one year later and there is still no investigation. Matter of fact he has done everything in his power so there will not be any investigation into 911. Why?

Watch the video of Bush addressing the country from Emma E. Booker Elementary School promising a full investigation into 911. http://www.AttackOnAmerica.net/BushAtEmmaEBookerSchool.mov

Privately, the cowards who call themselves Democrats questioned why the White House feared a broader investigation to determine possible culpability.

A forensic investigation into what actually caused the buildings to collapse has not been opened and probably never will because the crucial evidence, such as steel from the building, was quickly removed rather than taken to a metallurgical laboratory to be examined. Fire Engineering magazine, a 125-year old respected journal which publishes technical studies of major fires, criticized the investigation by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as "a half-baked farce."

The journal said it "has good reason to believe that the ‘official investigation’ blessed by FEMA and run by the American Society of Civil Engineers is a half-baked farce, commandeered by political forces whose primary interests lie far afield of full disclosure."

Why isn't the United States government fully investigating each and every detail of what occurred prior to, and on September 11th? When Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941 and John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 there were full independent investigations started within two weeks. Why hasn't there been a full independent investigation on September 11, 2001?

Finally, ask yourself these two simple questions about 911: Who had the most to gain (follow the money)? Who had the most to lose?

What happened to our first amendment? Where are all of the free and open debates in the United States Questioning September 11th? I, Mark Elsis will debate anyone or any panel on this issue. Does any formidable opponent dare to debate me about what really happened on September 11, 2001?

Past September 11th's

September 11, 1922, One of the things that the League of Nations did during its short period of existence was to grant Great Britain a special "Mandate" to establish a homeland for the Jewish people in the territory of Palestine, which had been taken from the newly defeated Turkish Empire. History records that the administration of this mandate effectively began with the swearing into office as High Commissioner and Commander in Chief for Palestine of the Right Honorable Sir Herbert Samuel, in Jerusalem, on September 11, 1922.

September 11, 1922, The final achievement of Brandeis and American Zionism in the post-war period was the passage by Congress on September 11, 1922 of a joint resolution favoring a Jewish homeland in Palestine. The words of the resolution practically echoed the Balfour Declaration.

September 11, 1941, Construction begins on the Pentagon.

September 11, 1941, Charles Lindbergh spoke about the danger of Jewish power in the media and government. The shy 39-year-old -- known around the world for his epic 1927 New York to Paris flight, the first solo trans-Atlantic crossing -- was addressing 7,000 people in Des Moines, Iowa, on September 11, 1941, about the dangers of U.S. involvement in the war then raging in Europe. The three most important groups pressing America into war, he explained, were the British, the Jews and the Roosevelt Administration.

Of the Jews, he said: "Their greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government." Lindbergh went on: "... For reasons which are understandable from their viewpoint as they are inadvisable from ours, for reasons which are not American, [they] wish to involve us in the war. We cannot blame them for looking out for what they believe to be their own interests, but we must also look out for ours. We cannot allow the natural passions and prejudices of other peoples to lead our country to destruction."

September 11, 1973: President Salvador Allende of Chile was assassinated and his country taken over by a United States backed coup.

September 11, 1994: A lone pilot crashed a stolen single-engine Cessna into a tree on the White House grounds just short of the President Clinton’s bedroom.
