Retired Air Force Col: They lied to us about the war and about 9/11 itself

A few weeks ago I posted the audio and video from Part 1 of Retired Air Force Col. Robert Bowman’s Speech to Patriotic Americans, here’s Part 2.

To Download, rt-click -> save as [the video] and/or 6.6mb Audio mp3 with cool backing music... here’s the transcript (but you really must listen, he’s that good ;-)

Col. Robert Bowman:

As other speakers have said, they knew the American people wouldn’t stand for it, and they said so in their documents, and they said, unless there’s that new Pearl Harbor. Well 9/11 did supply that. And we’ve been lied to not only about the war, but about 9/11 itself.

The Bush administration was warned. They were warned by the Clinton Administration during the transition period, they were warned by the intelligence agencies of eleven other nations, they were specifically warned by one FBI agent that Moussawi was planning on flying a hijacked airliner, “into the World Trade Center.”

They ignored the warnings, more than that, we have mounting evidence that _at least_, they made it impossible for those planes to be intercepted.

If our government had merely done nothing - and I say that as an old interceptor pilot and I know the drill, I know what it takes, I know how long it takes, I know what the procedures are, I know what they were and I know what they changed them to - if our government had merely done nothing and allowed normal procedures to happen on that morning of 9/11, the twin towers would still be standing and thousands of Americans would still be alive. My sisters and brothers, that is treason!

As a combat veteran, I will not stand idly by watch our security destroyed by a President who went AWOL rather than serve in Vietnam. As one who has devoted his life to the security of this country. I will not stand by and watch an appointed President send our sons and daughters around the world to kill Arabs for the oil companies.

Patriotism demands that I speak out and call it by it’s name. It is treason.

I joined the Air Force a long time ago to protect our borders and our people, not the financial interests of Folgers, Chiquita-Banana, Exxon and Halliburton. We’ve had enough corporate wars. No more Iraqs, no more Kosovos, no more El Salvadors, No more Columbias.

These are not isolated incidents of stupidity, they’re part of a long bloody history of foreign policy being conducted for the financial interests of the wealthy few. It is a new form of colonialism, all the benefits and none of the responsibilities. It violates our Constitution, it endangers our people and it is treason.

As a pilot who flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam, I swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that includes a renegade President. It’s time for George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice and the whole Oil Mafia to be removed from office and indicted for treason.

We owe it to the men and women serving in Iraq to end the occupation, restore our credibility and honor and bring them home, and it could be done if we had a President who would go to the UN and say we made a horrible mistake, it was wrong and we make you three committments:

1. We give up all rights to Iraqi oil 2. We give up all rights to the rebuilding contracts- if Halliburton wants a contract from you, they have to bid on it like anybody else, and they have to hire Iraqis to do the work for a change. 3. We give up all rights to those 14 permanent military bases we’re building in Iraq at this time.

And the people in the Whitehouse are not going to make those committments and so they have to go and all the puppeteers with them.

You know we are the people and we are sovereign. We are the patriots and the whole world is with us. Everywhere in the country that they have a free press, all over the world people know the facts and they are with us. Not the people out there, not the deadheads, not the know-nothings, not the chickenhawks, they’re with us.

Don’t let anybody intimidate you into silence, it’s time for all of us to speak truth to power. Our sons and daughters are being killed, they’re being maimed by the tens of thousands, they’re being poisoned by Depleted Uranium by the hundreds of thousands. They’re children are being born with birth defects, horrible birth defects, at an alarming rate. We’re being lied to about all that as well.

Our sons and daughters in uniform are being dehumanized, emotionally damaged, psychologically destroyed, they’re being made not just to kill, but to hate. Those who return are prone to domestic violence, divorce and suicide. The lies, the killing and the destruction of our young sons and daughters must not continue. We must end it. Patriotism demands that we speak truth to power, and that we support what’s left of our troops by bringing them home now.

Together we can do it. We can get the truth out there to the American People, we’re on the verge. We’ve got half the people with us, we’ve got to go after the other half. And together we can take back our country and get the liars the heck out of there.

God Bless America, and God grant us regime change in Washington DC. Thank you very much.

Pearl Harbor is located in Hawaii. Hawaii was not an American state at this time, it was unlawful occupied by America. So Japan did not even attack America only their phony Nazi occupational forces!
Japan did also not attack civilians, that is what American Nazi soldiers do in Iraq or did in numerous other countries.
9/11 happened, because the Bush administration needed a cause. And every life taken in New York was nothing against the million live taken by Nazi American soldiers.

God helps those who help themselves. Quit waiting for him to rescue you. Its your responsibility to help make this nasty situation come to balance. Meantime, the Patriot Act is being accepted without question in Congress. Your elected officials are accepting, without debate, the administration’s push to make death sentences easier and broader in scope. Where are your letters of complaint? How are you making sure your voice is heard? Americans are too busy sitting around, wringing their hands and waiting to be rescued while they continue to drive their SUV’s around their disposable society.

Last week the NIST (National Institute Science Technology) issued their report on the collapse of the towers and building 7. They are posted on their site. I studied the technical sections about the collapse of the towers (did not get to building 7 yet). I am a physicist not a structural engineer. NIST’s simulations explain the initiation of the two collapses. But barely. They have to choose the right conditions just before collapse. Stresses are estimated from deformations (around 10 inch) derived from pictures of the towers’ exteriors minutes before collapse. It would be a lot more convincing if simulations could be done with minimal constraints on initial conditions. Assumptions are made about amounts of fire protecting coating falling off of steel beams. If that coating had held, they say, the towers would have stood. They do not have a satisfactory explanation of why the top of the towers at collapse tilt 90 and 180 degrees away from the location of impact. You would expect a tilt towards the side of impact. They say: a column was severed on the other side, or: the fire spread towards the other end. That sounds weak and is completely unsubstantiated. My main problem is with the two collapses themselves. NIST simulations stop at collapse initiation. All NIST says is: and then global collapse ensues. The two collapses should have been asymmetric (not straight down) and incomplete. Even if for some magical reason both collapses had started out perfectly symmetrical then still most of the supporting heavy steel beams in the center should have remained standing or come down in huge chunks. The outside of the buildings should have come down faster. But those beams just ’dissipated’ as fast as much weaker beams on the outside of the buildings and in many short pieces.

Now let me develop a scenario.

Remember that building 7 collapsed later in the day for no reason at all. And this building perfectly pan-caked down as well. Two things we know about that building: it was demolished and it housed an important CIA office.

And we know that 9/11 was an inside job. If nothing else the 8 ft hole in the Pentagon proves that. A plane could have never caused that, it was a missile. (and there was no black box and no human remains from passengers and no parts from a plane and all videos are confiscated and the impact was in a part that happened to be under renovation and even a pro-pilot could barely have flown that plane the way it must have)

We also know that Cheney and the PNAC were ’dying’ to go to war to fulfill their agenda. Cheney being Veep learned about Atta and his people and their plans for the WTC. That would be a perfect incident to get people ready for war (and to accept torture). Cheney decided to control and magnify the incident. Controlling the attack on the WTC is important because you want the incident to be dramatic (for TV) but not devastating for NYC and the financial centers right next door. So toppling of the buildings had to be avoided. A demolishing crew was hired and their task was to pull the buildings when they threatened to topple or to pull them anyway because it would be spectacular for TV. The demolishing crew was stationed next to the WTC in the CIA offices in building 7. They watched the attacks and the towers’ behavior closely. Remote control high explosives had been mounted up and down the central supporting columns as part of a building maintenance/inspection job. Or as part of a ’secret’ CIA program to ’bug’ the towers. When they noticed signs of toppling (increased buckling, shown in NIST pictures) they pulled. The first explosions were at the floors of the impact and at columns away from the impact. Crucially, this prevented serious toppling to one side and it explains why subsequent toppling was to sides away from the impacts. After this there was a standard controlled demolishion: the steel support columns were chopped up in small/manageable chunks and everything came down straight and neatly. To cover their tracks building 7 also had to be pulled.

The chunks of columns were small enough so that they could be removed quickly and were melted down abroad (Demolishing companies advertise the ability to pull this of. It saves a lot of money) No time was allowed to study the steel for signs of explosions.

Shocking quotes by Machiavelli

"is necessary to take such measures that, when they believe no longer, it may be possible to make them believe by force. "

"The prince wishing to keep his state is very often forced to do EVIL."

"Nothing honours a man than to establish new laws and ordinances when he himself was newly risen. Such things when they are well founded and dignified will make him revered and admired."

"It is necessary for a prince to understand how to avail himself of the beast."

Obviously the caution does’t pertain to Anti-semitic smears. But, probibly to true free thinking speach.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political,
economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to
use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
. — Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic.

Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting.
