Seeking truth on JFK and 9/11

Dear Editor:

On Feb. 23, 2011, during Mancow Muller’s nationally syndicated radio show, Donald Rumsfeld, the secretary of defense on 9/11, was asked: “No plane hit Building 7. Why did Building 7 come down? What do you tell people?” Rumsfeld’s unambiguous answer: “What is Building 7? … I have no idea. I have never heard that.” The Internet buzzed, as the mainstream media ignored this astounding assertion. After all, Building 7 was home to numerous three-letter agencies. Is he senile or was it a Jedi mind trick?

Perhaps it was classical hubris. If so, Donald best be careful. A recent poll by Siena College, a highly respected New York institution, revealed that while only one in three New Yorkers are aware of Building 7, half of those who are do not believe the party line. The poll revealed that almost one in three New Yorkers believe that the Twin Towers were brought down by demolition and half of all New Yorkers support a new investigation into the collapse of Building 7.

New investigation? In fact, there has been no official investigation into why Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper, collapsed on 9/11. The 9/11 Commission ignored its destruction as well as the testimony of more than a hundred eyewitness reports by first responders, workers and reporters, all adamant that prior to the Towers falling explosions were everywhere, even underground, people were trapped, bodies torn apart, blood flowed freely. Honor their heroism, disdain their testimony.

The Commission claimed raging fires, hot enough to weaken steel, caused the collapse of the Towers. However, 1,500 scientists and engineers, from all over the world, many in peer reviewed papers, insist that the fires were not even close to being hot enough to do the job. Seven minutes before his death, Fire Chief Palmer, near the site of the impact, assessed the situation and reported “Ladder 15, we’ve got two isolated pockets of fire. We should be able to knock it down with two lines.” In the words of the editor of Fire Engineering Magazine the 9/11 Commission’s explanation is, “A half-baked farce.”

The back of President Kennedy’s head explodes, an obvious exit wound. Hours later his press secretary, from behind a podium, on live TV, reports that a bullet entered the side of our president’s forehead and blew his brains out. Yet the Warren Commission maintained a magic bullet struck Kennedy from behind, and then, after defying the laws of space and time, wounded Governor Connelly and was finally found, pristine, on a hospital stretcher.

The Warren Commission’s conclusions were met with immediate derision, as was the 9/11 Commission Report. In the years that followed its credibility eroded to the point that in 1977 the House Select Committee on Assassinations instigated another investigation and found that “President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.”

A bit late, but there you have it. The Warren Commission was a cover-up. Many of the vicious criminals, the traitors who assassinated our president, are, very likely, still with us. Magic bullets and Towers that defy the laws of physics, when, oh, when, will America face reality and demand to know what really happened on 9/11 and who was responsible?
