Sorry Becky, but I'm being careful here (in this thread anyway) to keep away from anything which may be considered a 'conspiracy theory' !
The above link is simply (yet another) senior american military officer stating what is in fact public knowledge, and has been for many years.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLTeQ...ayer_embedded#
It has been announced by a number of people, including; Eckehardt Werthebach, former president of Germany's domestic intelligence service, Andreas von Bulow, state-secretary in the German Federal Ministry of Defence (1976-1980) and Minister for Research and Technology (1980-1982), Former Senior BBC Mideast Correspondent Alan Hart says on air that Israeli Mossad did 9/11 and much more in his revealing interview with Kevin Barrett http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDsW4DyyZvU
, Pakistani General Gul, Former director of the Pakistani Intelligence Service, Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, Even US Intelligence, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v ... p;feature=player_embedded
And of course, any enquiry into 911 by the Bush govt would be completely open and aimed at finding the truth, sorry, here's part of it's coverup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v ... bwF2g&feature=related
And here's the commission itself saying it was lying.
The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

What is becoming clear is that there are a number of 'covert ops' which are going to become publicised as a result of the current round of skirmishing, the point to remember is they're generally 'conspiracy theories' until the truth comes out, then they become crimes.
Another thing to keep in mind, those who want to control information and bring in a Police State in the US are the same people who just voted 2.775 Billion in military aid to Israel.
"This funding sends a strong message, to both our enemies and allies, by providing more total dollars than ever before toward these rocket and missile defense programs," he said.
Rothman also confirmed that "when it comes to defense, military, and intelligence cooperation, the relationship between the US and Israel has never been stronger."
And to quote Obama; Israel is "our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy," Obama said, assuring his audience that "we must preserve our total commitment to our unique defense relationship with Israel by fully funding military assistance and continuing work on the Arrow and related missile defense programs." Such advanced multi-billion dollar systems he asserted, would help Israel "deter missile attacks from as far as Tehran and as close as Gaza." As if the starved, besieged and traumatized population of Gaza are about to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles.
And this is the country which many in the military, intelligence, and political fields consider ran 911.
Makes you wonder which country some of the American (and British) leadership really support. Treason is a word that springs to mind.
Mind you, given the nearly comatosed nature of western society, a major war crime can be reported and proven, the illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq for example, and the war criminals responsible get rewarded by their states.
The Nuremburg Principles make this legal point very clearly.
Principle VI states,
"The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law:
(a) Crimes against peace:
(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
(b) War crimes:
Violations of the laws or customs of war which include, but are not limited to, murder, ill-treatment or deportation of slave labor or for any other purpose of the civilian population of or in occupied territory; murder or ill-treatment of prisoners of war or persons on the Seas, killing of hostages, plunder of public or private property, wanton destruction of cities, towns, or villages, or devastation not justified by military necessity.
(c) Crimes against humanity:
Murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation and other inhumane acts done against any civilian population, or persecutions on political, racial, or religious grounds, when such acts are done or such persecutions are carried on in execution of or in connection with any crime against peace or any war crime."
Well, it seems to me that the US, Britain, Israel, (the list goes on) have clearly breached all of these completely, plus a large number of other international laws, we still appear to be waiting for the trials.
Ron Paul said it best in his book Revolution: A Manifesto: "Truth is treason in an empire of lies." Paul reiterated this principle of transparency in a recent interview. Paul said we need more WikiLeaks if we expect to live in a free society:
'In a free society we're supposed to know the truth,' Paul insisted. 'In a society where truth becomes treason, then we're in big trouble.'
Given the angry calls for action and today's developments of government proposals, not to mention the blight of Internet legislation already on the table, we will likely get the exact opposite of the free-flow of information that Paul is advocating. In fact, if history is any indicator, get ready for nothing less than the Patriot Act for the Internet!
