Questions 911 'Problems'

From Eyes On America

1-27-2

On Monday, 28 January 28, 2002, "Insight MediaFile," available on Vision TV in Canada, will try to answer the following question: "What Happened on 9/11 and why aren't the mainstream media asking that question?"



On the last edition of "Insight MediaFile" (first broadcast on 21 January) the show's host -- media critic Barrie Zwicker -- dared to suggest in his weekly commentary that the CIA, Pentagon and White House may be complicit in the horrendous events of Sept. 11th, 2001.



That commentary was the first in a series on MediaFile that will deal with this important issue. MediaFile is perhaps the first current affairs TV program in Canada to raise this possibility.



Barrie Zwicker says that following that show, "the program's senior producer, executive producer and program director decided we'll devote the whole of next Monday's program [28 January] to 'What Happened on 9/11 and why aren't the mainstream media asking that question?' It will lead off with our most extended viewer feedback segment ever, followed by the media panel on that topic, followed by Part 2 of my series. All commercial-free."



A RealAudio clip of his 21 January 2002 commentary can be viewed at: http://clients.loudey e.com/imc/mayday/mediafile.ram



A transcript of that commentary follows:

What really happened on Sept. 11th? 9/11 - Part 1



For four months I e been waiting in vain for the North American media to pursue questions about the startling events of September 11th. Hereís what I want to know:



The multiple hijackings are unprecedented. The first occurs at 7:45 in the morning. Itís a full hour before the first plane hits the World Trade Center. But itís an hour and 20 minutes -- and after the second plane hits ñ that the President allegedly becomes informed. Think about that.



Then, he gives no orders. Why? He continues to listen to a student talk about her pet goat. Why?



Itís another 25 minutes until he makes a statement, even as flight 77 is making a bee-line for Washington, DC.



In the almost two hours of the total drama not a single U.S. Air Force interceptor turns a wheel until itís too late. Why? Was it total incompetence on the part of aircrews trained and equipped to scramble in minutes?



Well, unlike the U.S. Air Force, Iíll cut to the chase. Simply to ask these few questions is to find the official narrative frankly implausible. The more questions you pursue, it becomes more plausible that thereís a different explanation: namely, that elements within the top U.S. military, intelligence and political leadership ñ which are closely intertwined ñ are complicit in what happened on September the 11th.



Why U.S. complicity, you ask?



Well, to stampede public opinion into supporting the so-called war on terrorism, to justify a war on Afghanistan for a future oil pipeline, the grab for Middle East oil, big budget increases for the military, and the general drive for global domination by the American Empire.



I know it sounds incredible.



But hereís some historical context from this book, Body of Secrets. Its author is James Bamford. Bamford until recently was Washington Investigative Producer for ABCís World News tonight with Peter Jennings. I learned of this book on ABCís website.



Bamfordís information comes from interviews. With, for instance, the former dean of the U.S. intelligence community. And from government documents. It takes 80 pages to list Bamfordís more than 600 information sources.



Hereís the story. Itís 1962. John F. Kennedy is U.S. president. Robert McNamara is Secretary of Defence. And Admiral Lyman Lemnitzer heads the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. The CIA has failed in its illegal Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba.



JFK decides, Bamford writes, to back away from military solutions to the Cuban problem.



But Lemnitzer, the CIA and others at the top remain obsessed with Cuba. Writes Bamford: "As the Kennedy brothers appeared to suddenly ëgo softí on Cuba, Lemnitzer could see his opportunity to invade -- quickly slipping away. --attempts to provoke the Cuban public to revolt seemed dead--"



Continues Bamford: "Lemnitzer and the other chiefs knew there was only one option left that would ensure their war. They would have to trick the American public and world opinion--"



Lemnitzer comes up with Operation Northwoods.



"We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba--casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."



"We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington."



An elaborate variation: create "an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft--" "At a designated time the duplicate would be--loaded with--selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone [a remotely controlled unmanned aircraft]"-- "the destruction of (that) aircraft will be triggered by radio signal."



The Cubans would be blamed.



Finally, another variation is described by Bamford: "On February 20th, 1962 (John) Glenn was to lift off from Cape Canaveral--on his historic journey. Lemnitzer "proposed -- that should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, ëthe objective is to provide irrevocable proof that--the fault lies with (Cuba)--" "by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans."



Thus, Bamford notes, "as NASA prepared to send the first American into space, the Joint Chiefs of Staff were preparing to use John Glennís possible death as a pretext to launch a war."



The Operation Northwoods plan shows the Pentagon was capable, according to Bamford, "of launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting a (war on Cuba)."



Can we be sure, therefore, that complicity by the Pentagon in the events of Sept. 11th is entirely out of the question?



Next week, a more precise look at the events of that fateful day.



And what about bin Laden? Iíll have more on him too. And the arrests of people named as terrorists around the world.
