In the run-up to the tenth anniversary of 9-11, Germany's popular magazine Der Spiegel carried the following interesting article:

Questioning 9/11 The Politician Turned Conspiracy Theorist

Andreas von Buelow is, as the article indicates, no ordinary conspiracy theorist, having been a cabinet minister for former Social Democratic Party governments in Germany. If you can imagine it, it would be like current CIA director Leon Panetta, after serving his term as CIA director and then retiring, coming out and writing a book saying he thinks elements of the American government or some even deeper rogue group plotted the 9-11  attacks, or President Sarkozy giving a press conference to say the same thing. As the article notes, Von Buelow, along with many other people the world over, questions whether or not Bin Laden's assassination in Pakistan was really even...well, real.

In short, Von Buelow is no frantic American talkshow host crooning frantic arias about the immanent doom of civilization at the hands of nefarious New World Order globalists plotting a fake war on terror.

But there are problems, and it is worth citing Der Spiegel's summary of Von Buelow's views:

"In Bülow's version of events, though, the intelligence services, particularly the CIA, display an almost inhuman degree of precision and competence. Not only did they allegedly control the terrorist planes remotely using special technology, but they also supposedly placed explosives on multiple floors of the World Trade Center towers in advance, to facilitate the buildings' peculiar controlled, vertical collapse. In the case of the Pentagon, they possibly directed a cruise missile into the building, while at the same time making the crew and passengers of Flight AA77, the plane officially believed to have hit the Pentagon, disappear without a trace. Along the way, they invented the story about the 19 terrorists, substantiating it with false witness testimony and strategically placed documents and evidence."

Add to this the significant statements of how a major European news magazine views American administrations:

"Over the past decades, successive US administrations have themselves certainly provided ample fodder for the formation of such views: the fable of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; the fact that it was American help that turned Afghanistan's mujahideen into the powerful force that later gave rise to the Taliban and al-Qaida; the Iran-Contra affair; the country's unscrupulous cooperation with dictators and coups; the Vietnam War. The US government and its intelligence services have been caught lying, deceiving and breaking international treaties so often that many people now believe anything is possible. This is the fertile soil that allows an interest in authors such as Bülow and Bröckers to thrive."

Well, as most of my readers know, I question even these sorts of "truther" scenarios concerning 9.11, the whole controlled demolition scenario so often bandied about in those circles as "explanations" for the collapse of the Twin Towers, for I have yet to read any of those explanations that do full justice to some of the witness statements, the toasted cars over a mile away, and so on, evidence assiduously collected by Dr. Judy Wood.

But the bottom line is this, if a senior German politician is willing to go public with doubts about the US government's official story, one can only imagine what is being said by the world's politicians in private, and what kinds of intelligence memoranda and analyses of the event they're reading. But one may lay good money that those analyses include at least some lines to the effect that America has, as a result of the events of 9-11, been under the control of forces increasingly scrambling to use the event to impose American will and policy. One can imagine that those analyses include words like "desperation", "over-extension", and, most of all, "long range prospects and counter-measures," and one can bet that the Russians in particular have parsed the event down to its last detail, and probably have a very clear picture of what happened...and so far, they're not talking. I imagine, however, that Von Buelow is the tip of a large iceberg, and that gradually, we will see more world leaders coming forward to question the whole official line.

    Having listened to some late night radio shows where some folks, who are NOT personally acquainted with Dr Judy Wood, are trying to, literally, co-opt her excellent work and put their spin on it, I want to say this: the most poignant scene is where somebody who, normally, is very knowledgeable in a lot of things, bluntly states that Dr Wood found out things she herself doesn’t understand. With all due respect, the one who didn’t get it was the speaker, and you know who I’m talking about. I will not mention his name because to me it is not clear what his intentions are. But I surely have growing doubts about that one, as Dr Farrell knows. And, frankly, it would be quite a blow against certain perps when the person in question were to be unmasked, one way or another, for good or bad. And I really hope for the former.

    Antoine says: “I toy with the idea that these people were originally formed due to the knowledge their founders gained from the ‘ANCIENT PAST’. Specifically, that our ancestors blew themselves up a few times (see ancient Indian texts) once they got their hands on all this nice Tesla technologies which involves space-time engineering. With the knowledge that this killed civilizations a few times over, it would be reasonable to figure that the technology, Die Glocke et al, should be occultized.”

    As usual, a fascinating response. I toy with the same rationale but with a slight twist in the “space-time engineering” angle (a la Webre/Basiago).

    Webre/Basiago sees quantum time-jumping & chronovisor analysis as a means to see or visit future scenarios. But what if, for the sake of argument, nefarious forces from the future pull Telsa stunts ‘now’ to insure their own future agendas are shaped, morphed by what’s happening today?

    In other words, rather than predicting a winning horse-race to instead go back & insure something wrong happens to the winner so that your horse is actually the one thatwins? Just saying…

    Hi, Joseph et al ~

    At risk of & with intent to offend a few, let me suggest that the best positions from which to MIS-lead the so-called ‘9/11 Truth Movement’ is from leadership positions. Some if not most alternative 9/11 hypotheses may be (probably are) disinformation & limited hang-outs. Such hypotheses probably include, in substantial part, the “Inside Job” & “Controlled Demolition” hypotheses.

    Germany’s government intel honcho Andreas von Bülow, Russia’s Armed Forces Chief of Staff General Leonid Ivashov, and the demagogic Alex Jones might safely be included amongst frequent purveyors of 9/11 disinfo. See, e.g., “Uncovered: The Rat’s Nest of 9/11” at and “Russian General Exposing 9/11 is a KGB Fake!” at

    This is NOT to say that Von Bülow, Ivashov, Jones & others are all ‘Witting’ in their quasi-frequent provisioning of probable pap. Other possibilities are: ‘Unwitting,’ ‘Semi-Witting’ &/or ‘Witless.’

    If Russian, German & other oligarchs intend the deliberate destruction of the USA, then “Inside Job” may be a perfect PsyOp weapon with which to accomplish such a purpose. However, the evidentiary orgy of a breadcrumb-like trail leading to this conclusion is just too simple & inept.

    If we also have a breadcrumb-like trail leading to a “Controlled Demolition” conclusion, then were the 9/11 prime perps & planners ‘too clever by half’? Or were they smart enough to mislead most 9/11 researchers away from a 9/11 methodological hypothesis accounting for all of the data?

    If & when Dr. Judy Wood’s 9/11 DEW hypothesis is well-proven, cannot the 9/11 ‘Bankster’ oligarchs then use 9/11 DEW deployment (by a rogue group?) to demonize related Tesla-type cheap energy tech? Such neo-Luddite demonization may enable these scarcity mongers to continue hiding the true world of resource abundance in which most still don’t know that we now already live.

    Joseph, you say: “[O]ne can bet that the Russians in particular have parsed the event down to its last detail, and probably have a very clear picture of what happened…and so far, they’re not talking.”

    Of course not. Whether or not they knew before the fact, then, after the fact, the Russian & other G8+ oligarchs certainly did benefit from 9/11 (e.g., in political advancement, in profitable war endeavors, and in an increased ability to justify repressive measures to monitor & control domestic populations). The 3-part BBC documentary, “The Power of Nightmares,” details how terrorism empowers BOTH terrorist leaders AND G8+ leaders. They need each other to maintain power.

    You say: “…Von Buelow is the tip of a large iceberg, and … gradually, we will see more world leaders coming forward to question the whole official line.” Except for more of the von-Bulow/Ivashov-type limited-hang-out B.S. purveyors, don’t hold your breath.

    The G8+ oligarchic controllers AND most knowledgeable world leaders either 1) Continue their cover-up involvement; 2) Benefitted from 9/11 events too much to talk; 3) Know what probably happened before, during & after 9/11 — but can’t ‘prove’ it; 4) Fear for their lives; and/or 5) Are essentially clueless and therefore won’t rock their own comfortable, well-moored boats.

    Almost 50 years after the JFK assassination, we may know more about the ‘how & who’ than in the first few years thereafter. However, are we really any closer to remedying the fundamental flaws in our global systems that enabled such an event? Much less removing from power this SAME group that may also have perpetrated 9/11?

    Thus, Joseph, the future of humanity is (again) in your hands. Given your unique qualifications, you must write the definitive 9/11 book (or at least discuss these issues more so than you have already).

      If and when I am ready I will do so…there are problems of a personal nature as I have indicated. I am waiting for others to break the ice on a genuinely critical appraisal of ALL the positions on 9-11 before I weigh in.

    I have wondered if the whole “controled demolition” theory was put in place as a disinfo project that was doomed for exposure as not possible, thus discrediting 9-11 truthers and at the same time sidetracking the effort to explore a charged particle beem demolition possibility.

    What I don’t understand is how a massive conspiracy such as 9-11, which would have required literally hundreds of insiders to plan and execute, could happen and no one comes forth with the truth in the past decade. A vast number of people would have been required to complete such a broad ranged project. Included in the conspirators would be political, military, law enforcement, CIA, FBI and media. To hold such tight reign of information control, with such a broad ranged conspiracy, for a whole decade seems highly unlikely. How did they do that?

    • Citizen Quasar on September 20, 2011 at 7:40 am

      I remember news anchor Peter Jennings saying that day that the videos reminded him of watching a “controlled demolition.” This was/is supposed to be accepted by everyone as a sort of slip of the tongue by Jennings and to embed the “controlled demolition” model in people’s minds.

      Personally, I think that this line by Peter Jennings was scripted and that he quoted it remarkably well that day, with just the right amount of inflection, stress, and accent to maximize its effect. (His ability to do that is why he made the BIG BUCKS as a major nutwerk television commentator.)

      Nowadays when I look at the videos of the towers coming down I see nothing of the sort. I see them being disintegrated in a magnet-shaped field.

      • Vinnie on September 20, 2011 at 3:40 pm

        Without ruling out the use of some sort of DEW, what does this video of bldg 7 look like to everyone? The explosions seem to suggest a more conventional demolition using thermate to sever the support columns.

    So where, in all this, is Captain America?

  7. James on September 19, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    One may ponder why “Now” for the German response as such.
    The information and theories are not new.
    Who is next to voice in this vein will make for interesting interactive analysis.

  8. Ken Lemon on September 19, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    As I’ve said previously here, I’ve just finished Dr. Judy Wood’ book.

    The only thing I ask myself about 9/11 is, who has this Direct Energy weapon?

    If it is the USA, then there is a message here for other nations, in other words, we can control governments anywhere, and BTW, the message is VERY CLEAR.

  9. Citizen Quasar on September 19, 2011 at 11:58 am

    A fair number of American and foreign governmental officials have publicly questioned the official Amerikan version of the events of 9/11 over the years. one of these was no less than the Japanese Parliament.

    The question remains whether or not enough of the general population, particularly the American general population, will wake up to the truth in time to save the world, and America, from the forces of evil.

    A couple of the points that Dr. Judy Wood makes in her excellent book WHERE DID THE TOWERS GO? are:

    1. There was NOT enough mass left on the ground at the WTC complex after 9/11 to account for the mass of the buildings.

    2. There was NOT a big enough seismic signature to account for any so called “collapse.”

    One thing that every scientist and every government on Earth could do is to examine these data points.

  10. tom m on September 19, 2011 at 9:57 am

    Judy Wood Phd produced forensic evidence that clearly demonstrates that the 9/11 commission report is wrong. I suggest reading her book “Where Did The Towers Go”.
    We now have been in a war for10 years chasing an enemy that is based on the 911 event; and based on this false evidence,over a million people have been killed and more to follow “with no end in sight”.

  11. Hermes on September 19, 2011 at 9:48 am

    The truth is reaching the light of day…its a flicker @ the moment, but soon you will need to close your eyes it will be burning so bright…soon enough.

    Where did the people go that weren’t on the planes? They are on Mars most likely as workers for the breakaway civilization…makes the most sense ala occam…

    Dr Farrell…juxtapose these data points…both earthquakes a few weeks back (CO, VA) with the Japanese quake…(be sure to find the seismic data with the shocks/lack of preshocks) with the NOV airline/cruise ships fails with the launch of a Chinese ICBM (exhaust is far too gray for a US one, but the chinese did bring a sub within our waters and shoot that off)…there is a covert new energy war going on currently in combination with a financial one…well Adam Smith called it political economy for a reason and that’s about all I agree with him…you can’t seperate politics from economics unless you figure out a way to seperate man’s psyche the same…

  12. Robert Barricklow on September 19, 2011 at 8:27 am

    The Russians brought down their own civilian apartment buildings, less dramatic but the same “State Terrorist Player’s Signature”. No doubt they know, as the puppet master is playing ALL the sides(Babylon’s Banksters touches upon this).
    Obviously, an ‘energy weapon’ of some sort was used. The Mossad, as in Kennedy, was involved. The military, of course. But they were ‘rogue networks’.
    They even planned and partially implimented a ‘nuke scenario'(google: Kennebunkport/Rogue B-52 – confirmation with vengeance).
    As Admiral Mullen said, “We’re still trying to put those crazies back in the box”.

  13. Citizen Quasar on September 19, 2011 at 8:13 am

    A brief point to make here.

    There are many videos and documentaries floating around out there about what really happened on 9/11. As far as what happened at the Pentagon, a very good one, and one that I highly recommend that everyone watch, is:

    Briefly, the evidence is that he plane flew OVER the Pentagon.

  14. Antoine on September 19, 2011 at 6:46 am

    Only Nazi’s would be okay with planning and executing the murder of civilians.

    9/11 took some serious nuts to plan and execute. People who got their heads f@#$^D with for too long, and with the wrong set of ideas. This is not the sort people, psychopaths to be more specific, that the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. employs. The psy profiles of such people is easily screened by simple tests and they all run them. These people are sociopaths, technically speaking.

    Thus I conclude that it cannot be the normal apparatus, CIA, FBI, NSA , et al, who was being 9/11. It has to be the inner government, the breakaway civilization (now with WMD!), pick your favorite name for it. It had to be done by the men in black (love that name).

    9/11 was made by a group of people that is and has been isolated from the world for a long time, on a permanent basis. A group of people that has a very different view on the world and different beliefs, which enabled them to do cold blooded murder. People with money and power. Enough to get a tomahawk or something like that painted pretty and drive it into the Pentagon.

    I toy with the idea that these people were originally formed due to the knowledge their founders gained from the ancient past. Specifically, that our ancestors blew themselves up a few times (see ancient Indian texts) once they got their hands on all this nice Tesla technologies which involves space-time engineering. With the knowledge that this killed civilizations a few times over, it would be reasonable to figure that the technology, Die Glocke et al, should be occultized. If only to avoid getting everyone blown once again. In that optic, these people are protecting us from the technology, and I don’t see anything wrong with that.

    My son might think that a Katana is cool, but ain’t no way I’m gonna let a 3 years old play with one if you know what I mean…

    The problem with that scenario is that if its real, then the conspiracy theorists end up not with a bunch of bad guys or lunatics, but with sensible people protecting the world from technologies that already blew everyone a couple of times. Dedicated people trying to avoid strike three for humanity.

    Could it be?

    • Hermes on September 19, 2011 at 9:51 am

      What does it say that it takes psychopaths to protect us from our selves?
