You won't hear this in a White House press conference, but there's mounting evidence that the "official conspiracy theory" (the Osama-conspiring-with-nineteen-hijackers-from-a-cave theory) is a whitewash. The evidence suggests that the mass murders of 9/11 could not have occurred without foreknowledge and/or participation by at least some high-level government officials, possibly not only in the US but in other ("US-friendly") countries as well.
(If you're familiar with "Operation Northwoods," you'll realize that 9/11 would not have been the first time US government officials--intent on starting a war--had developed plans to murder US citizens, blame the murder on "terrorists," stir the public into anti-terrorist, pro-war frenzy, and then happily launch the pre-planned war.)
Mike Ruppert's new book lays out the evidence about 9/11. It explains the motives. And it raises profound questions about our governance, our energy future, our economic future, and society's future that could impact every life on the planet.
But unlike the 9/11 Commission's new report, Ruppert's book also names names--one of which is Cheney. Another is Giuliani.
(Before you dismiss the notion that Cheney might have been involved, ask yourself: who was one of the most vocal opponents of an official investigation into 9/11? Cheney. Who is it who keeps warning Americans that if we vote for Kerry, "terrorists" might attack again? Cheney.)

Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil
by Michael C. Ruppert
This is a detective story that gets to the innermost core of the 9/11 attacks. It places 9/11 at the center of a desperate new America, created by specific, named individuals in preparation for Peak Oil: an economic crisis like nothing the world has ever seen.
The attacks of September 11th, 2001 were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel. Crossing the Rubicon discovers and identifies the key suspects and persons of interest - finding some of them in the highest echelons of American government - by showing how they acted in concert to guarantee that the attacks occurred and produced the desired result.
After two and a half years of research and writing, Ruppert said:
"In my new book I will be making several key points:
1. I will name Vice President Richard Cheney as the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11 and will establish that, not only was he a planner in the attacks, but also that on the day of the attacks he was running a completely separate Command, Control and Communications system which was superceding any orders being issued by the FAA, the Pentagon, or the White House Situation Room;
2. I will establish conclusively that in May of 2001, by presidential order, Richard Cheney was put in direct command and control of all wargame and field exercise training and scheduling through several agencies, especially FEMA. This also extended to all of the conflicting and overlapping NORAD drills -- some involving hijack simulations -- taking place on that day.
3. I will also demonstrate that the TRIPOD II exercise being set up on Sept. 10th in Manhattan was directly connected to Cheney's role in the above.
4. I will also prove conclusively that a number of public officials, at the national and New York City levels, including then-Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, were aware that flight 175 was en route to lower Manhattan for 20 minutes and did nothing to order the evacuation of, or warn the occupants of the South Tower. One military officer was forced to leave his post in the middle of the attacks and place a private call to his brother - who worked at the WTC - warning him to get out. That was because no other part of the system was taking action.
5. I will also show that the Israeli and British governments acted as partners with the highest levels of the American government to help in the preparation and, very possibly, the actual execution of the attacks."
