The Planes:

The biggest mystery of 9/11 is what happened to the Airplanes, and how this stage of the Operation was actually conducted... This is by far the largest "Gray area" of 9/11 in part due to the fragmentary nature of the information we do have, but more in part due to the preponderance of what appears to be an organized CoIntelPro effort... We'll discuss that more as we go along.

I'd like to start you off with a television episode which aired in March 2001 portraying the concept of an airplane being flown into the WTC Twin Towers by Remote Control... This is in no way, shape, or form being presented as evidence for a 9/11 Conspiracy, but it will help set the tone for our investigation.

X-Files spin-off "Lone Gunman Files" Pilot Episode:

The Episode begins with a hacker downloading War Game Scenarios from a Government Think Tank. A Think Tank is when they get a group of geniuses together (or people with very high levels of intelligence) and get them to sit down together and think up scenarios which plan for every possible outcome that could happen...

If 9/11 really was an "Inside Job", the entire operation would almost certainly have had to come from some form of Think Tank... No one person could have masterminded such a conspiracy, let alone pulled it off... So we begin our investigations here, looking for a Government Think Tank with some form of connections that can help us to understand what happened to these Airplanes.

War Games, Drills, and Stand Down Orders

Investigative Journalist Michael C. Ruppert was the first to document the odd string of War Games and other military exercises take place the morning of 9/11, in his book "Crossing the Rubicon". A must read book for anyone seeking the truth about September 11th. The following information is from an article by Michael Kane on

Dick Cheney and the Secret Service:

Dick Cheney was running a completely separate chain of Command & Control via the Secret Service, assuring the paralysis of Air Force response on 9/11. The Secret Service has the technology to see the same radar screens the FAA sees in real time. They also have the legal authority and technological capability to take supreme command in cases of national emergency. Dick Cheney was the acting Commander in Chief on 9/11.

MEANS: Dick Cheney and the Secret Service
As the 9/11 plot unfolded, it has been reported that Secret Service whisked Dick Cheney into an underground presidential bunker at 9:03. 1 This establishes that the Secret Service was in the loop giving orders by at least 9:03, and almost certainly much earlier, as we will show.

Former counter-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke writes in Against All Enemies: "Secret Service had a system that allowed them to see what FAA's radar was seeing." The Kean Commission (also known as the 9/11 Commission) would have us believe that the chain of command on 9/11 was a complex web, but in reality the Secret Service had the authority to communicate presidential and vice presidential orders directly to fighter pilots in the air. 2

In Air War Over America, a book commissioned by the Air Force documenting the morning of 9/11, it is stated that the FAA contacted Otis Air Force base informing them Flight 11 was headed to Manhattan and had lost its identification signal by 8:30. 3 This indicates Secret Service was in the loop by the same time, or shortly thereafter, since they are able to see FAA radar screens in real time and FAA is reaching out to the military. There is no question that by 8:45 at the absolute latest, likely much earlier, Secret Service is in the decision-making loop. They were most likely in the loop after 8:15 when flight 11 turned its transponder off.

National Special Security Event
It is the Secret Service who has the legal mandate to take supreme command in case of a scheduled major event - or an unplanned major emergency - on American soil; these are designated "National Special Security Events." The Atlanta Olympic Games and the Republican & Democratic National Conventions are notable examples of NSSE's. In preparation, the Secret Service runs training initiatives of simulated attacks and field exercises for such events. 4

The Secret Service works with state and local authorities as well as the military to coordinate security efforts; it has the best communication system of any agency in the country; and its personnel are always present with both the President and Vice President - making it the perfect agency to take supreme command in case of a major emergency on American soil. 5

When 9/11 occurred, the legal framework was in place to allow the Secret Service to take supreme command over any and all American agencies, including the Air Force. 6

Richard Clarke writes in Against All Enemies: "I was amazed at the speed of the decisions coming from Cheney and, through him, from Bush." 7 This is to be expected. Everything was in place for the Commander in Chief to be calling all the shots as the 9/11 plot unfolded, but Bush was in an elementary school reading about goats with Secret Service agents right beside him.

Bush's Secret Service detail was in real-time communication not only with the FAA, but also the PEOC (Presidential Emergency Operations Center), into which Dick Cheney had reportedly been whisked by the Secret Service. While Bush continued his elementary school photo-op after being told, "America is under attack," Ari Fleischer - according to the Washington Times, 10/7/02 - caught the president's eye and held up a handwritten sign that said "DON'T SAY ANYTHING YET." 8 Bush was intentionally being kept out of the decision-making loop during the critical moments of 9/11. The Vice President has no place in the official military chain of command.9

Thus far we have established that:

  1. Secret Service was the supreme command on 9/11.
  2. Bush was not in the role of Commander in Chief at critical times on 9/11.
  3. The acting Commander in Chief as the 9/11 plot unfolded was Dick Cheney.
The Maestro

The most important revelation made about the 9/11 war games comes again from Major Don Arias of NORAD. With multiple war games running, there had to be someone coordinating them.

"Yes, there is an exercise maestro," said Don Arias in a phone interview. 26

So who was the maestro?

Mike Ruppert called every relevant military and government office looking for an answer to this question and received no response. At the final 9/11 Commission hearing on June 17, 2004, I asked General Ralph Eberhart - the man in charge of NORAD on 9/11 - who was in charge of coordinating the war games that day. His only response was, "No comment." None of the commissioners, including Chairman Kean, could answer this question. 27

FTW's research has concluded the maestro was either Dick Cheney, Ralph "Ed" Eberhart, or both. Whoever the maestro was, he was certainly under Cheney's management as per the May 2001 presidential mandate.

The publicly available mass media articles about these exercises state that they were similar enough to the actual events that top NORAD personnel were confused, not sure if 9/11 was "part of the drill" or a real world event.

"Operation Northern Vigilance, planned months in advance, involves deploying fighter jets to locations in Alaska and northern Canada." This ensured that there would be fewer fighter planes available to protect the East Coast on 9/11. Simulated information was fed into radar screens - is this what confused the air defenses that morning?

So what else prevented our military from intercepting those flights on 9/11?

9/11 Intercepted

The following film outlines the string of "failures" which prevented the FAA and NORAD from intercepting the hijacked flights:

Operation Northwoods

Operation Northwoods was a series of false flag proposals that originated within the United States government in 1962, but were rejected by the Kennedy administration

Plane-Drone Swap Hypothesis

Based on the details of a drone swap in the Operation Northwoods document, many groups have proposed various drone swap theories. The following film by Pilots for 9/11 Truth does an excellent job summarizing the evidence for a drone swap scenario

Of course, the drone-swap theory leaves many unanswered questions, such as what happened to the original flights and the passengers on board who presumably died in the attacks? Many people are uncomfortable with leaving this question unanswered and so have proposed other theories.

Automated Hijacking

The idea of computer controlled or automated hijackings also fits nicely with the drone swap theory. The drones would obviously be flown by computer automation rather than a real pilot, but even the original flights could have been hijacked electronically and flown into the towers without the need for hijackers, and someone could have also remotely gave the hijackers very special assistance in guiding the planes.

The Operation Northwoods document proves that this technology is nothing new, and the 9/11 aircraft anomalies tell us that something definitely isn't right. Books like Aidan Monaghan's "Declassifying 9/11" have shown the many ways the Government Version of Events does not fit the evidence.

By far the best source of information regarding the potential use of Augmented GPS Systems on 9/11 is Aidan Monaghan's paper:

Plausibility of 9/11 Aircraft Attacks Generated by GPS-Guided Aircraft Autopilot Systems

Full PDF By Aidan Monaghan (B.Sc., EET)

Abstract The alleged flight performances of inexperienced terrorist pilots accused of operating complex flight control systems of four aircraft during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 has surprised observers. Moreover, official information presented to demonstrate terrorist pilot control of the said aircraft has been either unverifiable or demonstrated to contain noteworthy anomalies. The flight paths of the September 11, 2001 attack aircraft bear characteristics common to the capabilities provided by precision automated flight control systems and related commercial aviation technology that emerged just prior to these attacks. The unreported use of augmented GPS guided auto-pilot aircraft systems in order to perform the said aircraft attacks is hypothesized.

The Project for the New American Century

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006. It was co-founded as a non-profit educational organization by neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan. The PNAC's stated goal was "to promote American global leadership."[1] Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that "American leadership is both good for America and good for the world" and support for "a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity."[2] The PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration's development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.[3][4]

Dov S. Zakheim

is a former official of the United States government.

Born December 18, 1948 in Brooklyn, New York, Zakheim earned his bachelor's degree in government from Columbia University in 1970, and his doctorate in economics and politics at St. Antony's College, Oxford University. He has been an adjunct professor at the National War College, Yeshiva University, Columbia University and Trinity College, where he was presidential scholar.

He served in various Department of Defense posts during the Reagan administration, including Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Planning and Resources from 1985 to 1987. As an Orthodox Jew, he gained notoriety for his involvement in ending the Israeli fighter program, the IAI Lavi. He argued that Israeli and U.S. interests would be best served by having Israel purchase F-16 fighters, rather than investing in an entirely new aircraft.

During the 2000 U.S. Presidential election campaign, Zakheim served as a foreign policy advisor to George W. Bush as part of a group led by Condoleezza Rice that called itself The Vulcans.

From 1987-2001, Zakheim was CEO of SPC International, a subsidiary of System Planning Corporation, a high-technology analytical firm. During that period he served as a consultant to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and sat on a number of major DoD panels, including its Task Force on Defense Reform (1997) and the DoD's first Board of Visitors of Overseas Regional Centers (1998–2001). In September 2000 Dov Zakheim also co-authored "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century" [1] which was released by the Project for a New American Century.

Zakheim is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and the United States Naval Institute, and a member of the editorial board of the journal The National Interest. He is a three-time recipient of the Department of Defense's highest civilian award, the Distinguished Public Service Medal, as well as other awards for government and community service.

He was an Adjunct Scholar of the Heritage Foundation, a Senior Associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and published over 200 articles and monographs on defense issues.

He was then appointed to be Undersecretary of Defense and Comptroller from 2001 to 2004 under the George W. Bush administration, and served in this capacity until April 2004. During his term as Comptroller, he was tasked to help track down the Pentagon's 2.6 trillion dollars ($2,600,000,000,000) worth of unaccounted transactions.[2] He initiated a number of processes that led to the reduction of that sum by two-thirds by the time of his departure. It has now been reduced by more than 90 per cent. [3]

He is currently a Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton.

International Consultants on Targeted Security, ICTS shared security duties on September 11, 2001, at Boston’s Logan Airport, where two of the four suicide hijackings originated on 9-11.

ICTS handled security at the Charles de Gaulle Airport outside Paris when “shoe bomber” Richard Reid boarded a US-bound plane on December 22, 2001. The company also handled security for London’s bus system during the July 7, 2005, suicide bomb attacks.

Both ICTS and Dov Zakheim are believed to have ties to Israeli intelligence. Mossad have a history of using false flag terror operations, but there were not the only ones involved on 9/11...

AA11 - UA175 Overlap:

Stewart AFB

Another interesting fact is that AA11 and UA 175 not only crossed paths directly over Stewart AFB... But did so at the exact same time!

This sort of circumstantial evidence may not prove a conspiracy, but it certainly reveals to us some key characteristics of the planning and accuracy that went into making 9/11 happen...

Let's dig into the evidence a bit more... Here is some information from

Stewart International Airport:


"It has made history in several ways. After its closure as an active Air Force base in the early 1970s, an ambitious plan by former Governor Nelson Rockefeller to greatly expand and develop the airport led to a bitter and protracted struggle with local landowners that led to reforms in the state's eminent domain laws but no actual development of the land acquired."

"At the end of the 20th century it became the first U.S. commercial airport to be privatized when United Kingdom-based National Express Group was awarded a 99-year lease on the airport."

Another Source Says:

"Stewart International Airport is the nation's first privatized commercial airport and operates under a 99-year lease agreement with the New York State Department of Transportation. National Express Group operates Stewart International Airport and is the United State's subsidiary of the National Express Group, PLC, in the United Kingdom."

Stewart International Airport:

-1- Stewart AFB, in New Windsor, New York is used as a hub for importation of illicit drugs, using our Military Assets as cover.

-2- Coincidently, Stewart happens to be the simultaneous crossing point of 2 hijacked airliners on 9-11, and also the approximate location of where the transponders were switched.

-3- Stewart AFB was previously known as the base where the Iran Hostages, were returned after 444 days and the October Surprise, this predated but is not unrelated to the Iran Contra fraud...Stewart AFB is the only airport of its kind, in that it was privatized for secret purposes.

-4- This privatization was executed in part by George Pataki, and Eliot Spitzer. In 1999 Pataki signed a 99-year lease (ala Silverstein), and in 2000 Spitzer privatized it for 'special'? use. Spitzer, of course, is the attorney general of New York, a supposed real life crime fighter.

-5- I wish that were true, but Spitzer allegedly investigates the post 9-11 AIG, Marsh Insurance Scheme; wherein hundreds of billions of dollars were skimmed from fattened insurance quotes.. Spitzer's investigation finds AIG guilty, yet only penalized them $ 1 billion- less than 1% of what they stole, and of that $ 1 billion, Marsh & McLennan had to pay $800,000,000 of it.

Rondezvous point where 9/11 flight transponders were turned off

(possibly switching the real flights for Drone Aircraft)

This analysis of the flight paths suggests that it was necessary for AA 11 and UA 175 to both pass over Stewart AFB in New Windsor, NY at the same time. The reason why this was necessary is unclear. This occurred at approximately 8:36am, the same time that AA 77 (the flight that hit the pentagon), deviated from its flight path before it was officially hijacked.

The fact that AA 11 and UA 175 crossed paths at the same time is too improbable to be regarded as a coincidence, implying that this was necessary for the attack. Further research needs to be done on this topic to determine what happened to AA 11 and UA 175 over Stewart AFB in New Windsor, N.Y. at 8:36am when AA 11 began a rapid decent. It is also very peculiar that at the same time that AA 11 and UA 175 crossed paths, AA 77 deviated from its flight path before it was hijacked. What happened at 8:36am on 9/11/01?

3: Used in October Surprise

The hostages did come home, 444 days later. They landed in the U.S. at Stewart Airport in Newburgh, N.Y. and it looked like five million people came out to greet them, wave flags, show yellow ribbons, give the thumbs up and flip the bird to unflattering drawings of the Ayatollah. The crisis was over. But in many other ways, it has never ended.

Because the many similarities between 9/11 and Iran-Contra it is significant that the same airport was used. Also because Iran-Contra was Poppy/Connally's team who operated independent of the President Carter.

4: Stewart Airport privatization "Governor George E. Pataki today announced that the final application for the privatization of Stewart Airport has been submitted to the Federal Aviation"

This is important because it would have meant that like AIG/Kroll/Marsh, this airport could operate independent of the government.

Missile Conspiracy Theories vs. Real Pentagon Intel:

The Official Government theory suggests that this hole in the C-Ring of the Pentagon was made by aircraft landing gear. For a long peroid of time people were arguing that it was a missile and not an airplane that struck the Pentagon and made this hole... Now more experienced researchers are suggesting that this hole was actually made by a secondary explosive device called a "Rapid Wall Breaching Kit (RWBK)"

Evidence of Secondary Explosion at the Pentagon

There is even evidence that a secondary explosion took place at the Pentagon while Porter Goss was talking to press in the Parking Lot.

This is a photograph of the impact hole left by a kamakazi fighter after it smashed into the side of an aircraft carrier. Notice how the wings disintegrated on impact leaving only minor denting to the wall of the ship. The hole was created by the plane's engine block which is much heavier and denser than the wings.

Part of the reason we see a lack of substantial facade damage at the Pentagon is due to the fact that Flight 77 was travelling nearly 500 mph at the point of impact, combined with the fact that the Pentagon has just undergone a $258 million refurbishment to Wedge 1 (the exact same wide which was struck on 9/11), the renovation was nearing completion when 9/11 happened. Read More Here:Renovation to revolution: Was the Pentagon attacked from within? - By Kevin Ryan June 15, 2012

Most of the "No Plane" or Missile theories were probably spread by CIA counter-intelligence early on to distract people from the more important evidence and questions about why that particular section and only that section was recently renovated and then "coincidentally" targeted for an attack... The same construction company that renovated wedge 1 of the Pentagon before 9/11, AMEC Construction, was also hired to repair that wing after 9/11. During that time offices and filing cabinets which occupied those sections of the Pentagon were moved around. Investigations into these activities will lead you directly to the perpetrators. Arguing over "Missiles" and "No Planes" will only lead you in circles and waste your time.

Was it Shot Down?

Witnesses to the mystery aircraft after the 'crash' of Flight 93:

"John:  We think it was shot down because as soon as it crashed a big fighter plane flew over the school.

Tessa: I think that the passengers took it down.

Brian:  I think it was both. At the same time really... We saw that  plane like right after it happened.  We were the only ones who saw it pretty much from the school.  Nobody one else saw.

Narrator: How long after did you guys see the fighter plane?

John:  Like ten seconds. 

Brian:  Right there. It was right after everything.

John:  As soon as we saw the mushroom cloud, this plane goes flying over." - GNN: "UA 93: The Road To Shanksville (part 2)"

(Video clip:


Robert Blair - Robert Blair, 41, also of Stoystown, was driving his coal-hauling route when he saw the plane crash a few miles away. He noticed the second plane because he had heard on his truck radio earlier that the FAA had grounded all aircraft, and he said it was flying east -- the same direction as Flight 93. He said the FBI asked him whether it looked like a military plane, but Blair remembered only that it was "a big jet flying low." - Washington Post (09/14/01)

Jim Brandt - "Somerset County resident Jim Brandt said that he saw another plane in the area. He said it stayed there for one or two minutes before leaving." - The Pittsburgh Channel (9/12/01)

"Everybody's seen this thing in the sky, but no one can tell us what it is." - The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

Rick Chaney - "Chaney described the plane as a Lear-jet type, with engines mounted near the tail and painted white with no identifying markings." - The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

Susan Custer - "said she saw a small white jet streaking overhead." - The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

Dennis Decker - "As soon as we looked up, we saw a midsized jet flying low and fast," Decker said. "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." - The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

Robin Doppstadt - was working inside her family food-and-supply store when she heard the crash. When she went outside, she said, she saw a small white jet that looked like it was making a single circle over the crash site.
"Then it climbed very quickly and took off. "
- The Bergen Record (9/14/01)

John Fleegle, manager, Indian Lake Marina -


"Like I said, probably within, within 45 seconds or a minute of impact, we were there. We were there before any fireman, any paramedics, or anybody; we were on site. When we got there, there was a plane flying up above and he was smart, he flew straight for the sun, so you couldn't, you couldn't look at it and see exactly what type of plane, or if it was a fighter or what it was. But we caught a glimpse of it and as he was swinging, he was basically traveling in the same direction as the plane." - GNN: "UA 93: The Road To Shanksville (part 2)"


(Video clip:


Lee Purbaugh, 32 - was the only person to see the last seconds of Flight 93 as it came down on former strip-mining land at precisely 10.06am - and he also saw the white jet.
He was working at the Rollock Inc. scrap yard on a ridge overlooking the point of impact, less than half a mile away. "I heard this real loud noise coming over my head," he told the Daily Mirror. "I looked up and it was Flight 93, barely 50ft above me. It was coming down in a 45 degree and rocking from side to side. Then the nose suddenly dipped and it just crashed into the ground. There was this big fireball and then a huge cloud of smoke."
But did he see another plane? "Yes, there was another plane," Lee said. "I didn't get a good look but it was white and it circled the area about twice and then it flew off over the horizon." - Daily Mirror (9/13/02)

Official explanation for the mysterious small white plane:

FBI Explains Other Planes At Flight 93 Crash

"Hoping to dispel rumors that United Airlines Flight 93 might have been shot down by military aircraft, the FBI Saturday said that two other planes were in the area but had nothing to do with the hijacked flight crashing in western Pennsylvania.

The FBI said that a civilian business jet flying to Johnstown was within 20 miles of the low-flying airliner, but at an altitude of 37,000 feet.
That plane was asked to descend to 5,000 feet -- an unusual maneuver -- to help locate the crash site for responding emergency crews.
The FBI said that is probably why some witnesses say they saw another plane in the sky shortly after Flight 93 crashed at 10:10 a.m. Tuesday in a grassy field near Shanksville, about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The FBI said there was also a C-130 military cargo aircraft about 17 miles away that saw smoke or dust near the crash site, but that plane wasn't armed and had no role in the crash. That plane was flying at 24,000 feet.
Earlier in the week, witnesses described seeing more planes to WTAE-TV reporters. Click here for video of those accounts.
On Friday, WTAE-TV reported that the mystery pilot in the white plane may have been an area farmer.

James K. Will, a Berlin, Pa., farmer who pilots a white Cessna with red stripes (pictured at right) and who has an airstrip near his farm, told Team 4 reporter Paul Van Osdol that he circled the scene about 45 minutes after the crash.

Will said he had just returned from Altoona and, when he'd heard about the crash, flew to the site to take photos of the wreckage. Pennsylvania State Police said that his plane may have been the one that many saw.
Will's flight was intercepted by a state police helicopter and was escorted to the Johnstown-area airport. His plane was searched and he was released." - ThePittsburghChannel (09/15/01)


"The FBI's later explanation for the white jet was that a passing civilian Fairchild Falcon 20 jet was asked to descend from 34,000ft to 5,000ft some minutes after the crash to give co-ordinates for the site. The plane and pilot have never been produced or identified. Susan Mcelwain says a Falcon 20 was not the plane she saw." - Mirror UK (09/12/02)

The White Jet
"Claim: At least six eyewitnesses say they saw a small white jet flying low over the crash area almost immediately after Flight 93 went down. theorizes that the aircraft was downed by "either a missile fired from an Air Force jet, or via an electronic assault made by a U.S. Customs airplane reported to have been seen near the site minutes after Flight 93 crashed." weighs in: "Witnesses to this low-flying jet ... told their story to journalists. Shortly thereafter, the FBI began to attack the witnesses with perhaps the most inane disinformation ever — alleging the witnesses actually observed a private jet at 34,000 ft. The FBI says the jet was asked to come down to 5000 ft. and try to find the crash site. This would require about 20 minutes to descend."
FACT: There was such a jet in the vicinity — a Dassault Falcon 20 business jet owned by the VF Corp. of Greensboro, N.C., an apparel company that markets Wrangler jeans and other brands. The VF plane was flying into Johnstown-Cambria airport, 20 miles north of Shanksville. According to David Newell, VF's director of aviation and travel, the FAA's Cleveland Center contacted copilot Yates Gladwell when the Falcon was at an altitude "in the neighborhood of 3000 to 4000 ft." — not 34,000 ft. "They were in a descent already going into Johnstown," Newell adds. "The FAA asked them to investigate and they did. They got down within 1500 ft. of the ground when they circled. They saw a hole in the ground with smoke coming out of it. They pinpointed the location and then continued on." Reached by PM, Gladwell confirmed this account but, concerned about ongoing harassment by conspiracy theorists, asked not to be quoted directly." - Popular Mechanics (03/05)

Possible Drone Aircraft Swapping Locations:

AA11 & UA175: It's almost certain that Stewart AFB acted as a Rondezvous point for the 2 flights out of Boston which crashed into the World Trade Center in NYC.

UA93: Some reports indicate that Flight 93 landed at Hopkins Airport, deboarded, and were moved to the NASA hanger... but if so, what happened to all the passengers?

AA77:Following the same line of logic from what we have perceived with the other 3 flights, AA77's "Hijack" location was oftly close to TriState Airport (where Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia all touch). This is still being investigated as a possible connection.

List of Passengers

There are four catagories of identities listed on the manifests for all four of the flights presumed to have crashed on 9/11: First are the ordinary citizens. These are the crew and passengers who were actually on board the flights at some point. They were killed and their bodies disposed. Google : "Christopher C. Kelly ID 184 Pentagon".

Second are the potential whistleblowers. These are the identities of people who were involved in some aspect of the 9/11 attacks, and were subsequently considered to be potential whistleblowers. They may or may not have been? on board the actual flights. They were killed, their bodies disposed, and their names added to the manifest (if they weren't already)? before being released to the public (and their personal histories changed to reflect them being on board, etc.).

Third are the new CIA recruits. These are people who were? recently inducted into a highly secretive elite covert operations corp. They, too, may or may not have been on board the actual flights. However, they are not now physically dead; their identities are presumed to have? perished on these flights. They subsequently assumed one of several new identities.

Fourth are the identities which did not belong to any physical person. These are the identities on the manifest which, if researched extensively, do not appear to have been real people. So please ask yourselves what's really going on?

The Investigation Continues...

The planes is one area that is still very confusing and difficult to resolve. There are many theories out there that are believable, but none that are absolutely convincing. Thus I consider the planes, at least for the time being, a "grey area" that until more information comes out, will continue to mystify investigators for years to come. It's definitely the job of someone else more knowledgeable and experienced to sort this one out for us.

Hologram, TV Fakery, and "No Plane" Theories:

Check out my page on Holographics Technologies for more information on holographics, Project BlueBeam, etc. I take these topics seriously, because there is hard science supporting their existance. However, from my research I do not see any evidence that these technologies were used on 9/11. I think this is a fascinating topic that disinformation agents have harped on in order to muddy the water, distract, and confuse researchers and lead them away from better evidence and research.

Where did all the passenger's go?

The biggest problem with "No Plane" theories or "Drone Swap" theories is the puzzle of what happened to all those passengers if they didn't all really die in the plane crashes themselves? If the original flights were landed and de-boarded, where did that happen and where did the people go? Researching this leads many places, unfortunately all of which turn out to be dead ends...

After wasting countless hours researching, debating, and eventually debunking these "No Plane" theories with people on the internet, I came to the conclusion that these theories are spread intentionally by disinformation artists in order to distract people from better evidence, like the War Games, Stand Down orders, Insider Trading, etc. It eventually became apparent that the "Missile at the Pentagon" theory was also being used to distract researchers from the $258 Million refurbishment of Wedge 1 completed by AMEC corporation and the missing $2.3 Trillion from Pentagon coffers. By getting people to argue over plane or no plane, despite the multiple eye-witness reports and many pictures showing the plane debris... you can keep them all distracted and pre-occupied arguing over things that will lead them in circles ever farther from the truth of WHO was behind the attacks, and why they did it.

If you can get people asking the wrong questions, you don't have to worry about the answers!

These disinfo theories also serve to damage the credibility and image of the truth movement. There is a great ongoing counter-intelligence effort to undermine the 9/11 Truth Movement through stereotypes like "Conspiracy Theorists", they want people to think we assume crazy things based on scanty, disconnected lines of evidence such as these No-Plane / TV Fakery theories function.
