False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors ; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own.

9/11 U.S. Attack Evidence

The Shocking Truth – Nuclear War With Iran The Talk in Cathedral Square, Christchurch
...People with impeccable credentials have written that the so-called terrorist attack on New York and the Pentagon on Sept 9, 2001 was an inside job. Also, that the so-called al-Qaeda terrorists were really pawns in a much bigger conspiracy, organised by the Bush Administration to create a new enemy and justify their global crusade and wars against terrorism.

Excellent Analysis of US War On Iran

comment by Larry Ross
September 5, 2007

This excellent analysis by Chris Hedges fails to suggest that many US plans call for the US use of nuclear weapons against Iran although many good analysts have produced articles indicating this.
He and many other good commentators in the US also fail to describe the tricks and pretexts that the Bush Administration may use, such as staging a  'False Flag' attack on the US and blaming Iran as an excuse to launch a US attack. 
Articles after the event will be too late and will either not be printed or will be ignored. If the world survives a possible holocaust, full war will ensure throughout the Middle East and perhaps elsewhere for the indefinite future. The future and great expectations of humanity will changed and consequences extreme.

Iran: The Next Quagmire

by Chris Hedges
September 3, 2007

The most effective diplomats, like the most effective intelligence officers and foreign correspondents, possess empathy.  They have the intellectual, cultural and linguistic literacy to get inside the heads of those they must analyze or cover.  They know the vast array of historical, religious, economic and cultural antecedents that go into making up decisions and reactions.  And because of this—endowed with the ability to communicate and more able to find ways of resolving conflicts through diplomacy—they are less prone to blunders.

Snow Job in the Desert

by Paul Krugman
September 3, 2007

Paul Krugman writes for The New York Times: "Until recently I assumed that the failure to find W.M.D., followed by years of false claims of progress in Iraq, would make a repeat of the snow job that sold the war impossible. But I was wrong. The administration, this time relying on Gen. David Petraeus to play the Colin Powell role, has had remarkable success creating the perception that the 'surge' is succeeding, even though there's not a shred of verifiable evidence to suggest that it is."

The 9/11 Flight 93 Hoax
Your countrymen have been murdered and the more you delve into it the more it looks as though they were murdered by our government, who used it as an excuse to murder other people thousands of miles away.
If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or ... to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you?

More Wars Will Destroy US

comment by Larry Ross
August 25, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts tells how the US Congress and democratic opposition are no longer acting as the hope of the nation in stopping Bush's illegal war on Iraq, or his planned war with Iran. The consequences of these wars are not considered by the deluded war-crazed neocons. Roberts does not mention that the Bush regime has "nuclear weapons on the table" according to Bush. After an initial conventional weapon attack, and expected Iranian retaliation, the Bush regime may use that as their justification for the planned nuclear strike. Also not mentioned is the possibility that the Bush regime will stage a false flag attack on the US and blame Iran, as a method of gaining public support and consent for anything. Bush wants. There will then be a media blitz designed to fool their public and others, and gain the support and participation of governments in the Bush war plan.

More War on the Horizon

by Paul Craig Roberts
August 23, 2007

pullout from Iraq while I'm president, declares George W. Bush. On to Iran, declares Vice President Cheney.
Israel is a “peace-seeking state” that needs $30 billion of US taxpayers' money for war, declares State Department official Nicholas Burns.
The Democratic Congress, if not fully behind the Iraqi war, at least no longer is in the way of it.
Nor are the Democrats in the way of the Bush regime's build up for initiating war with Iran.


Karl Rove Loses Debate on War With Iran - Cheney Wins

comment by Larry Ross
August 21, 2007

Apparently Rove, "Bush's brains" was against a war with Iran, which Cheney wanted. Karen Kwiatkowski's article is among many that indicate this war is now more likely. The many disastrous consequences, including escalation to a much wider, longer war and/or series of wars are okay with Cheney, Bush and the rest of the Bush Administration. If staged adroitly, based on the present broad range of lies, as were used to gain support for the Iraq war, Bush may also get away with this new deception.

Karl Rove's long-awaited departure from the White House makes sense, and not just because he really does need to spend more time with his family. Rove is a strange guy. And I say that not because of the rapping he has taken his critics, but because of his own rapping.
But that's just my opinion. Fact is, we are now Roveless.


Proof of 'False Flag' Attack and War Conspiracy?

comment by Larry Ross
August 10, 2007

Morgan Reynolds believes the 9/11 attacks were an inside job to gain public approval for wars on Afghanistan and Iraq. He also thinks the Bush-Cheney regime will stage another covert 'false flag' attack on the US, then blame Iran to justify a war on Iran. He served in the first George Bush Administration so he has knowledge of what's going on in Washington and insight into the real goals of the Bush regime.

Ex-Bush Official Busts 9/11 Cover-up at U.W. Historical Society

by Kevin Barrett
May 6, 2006

An enthusiastic standing-room-only crowd packed the Wisconsin Historical Society auditorium Saturday to hear ex-Bush Administration insider Morgan Reynolds prosecute top administration and military officials for the 9/11 inside job.
Reynolds to Cheney: "You're BUSTED!"
Reynolds indicted Richard Cheney, George W. Bush, former Joint Chiefs Chairman Richard Meyers, confessed WTC demolisher and insurance-fraudster Larry Silverstein, and others for mass murder, conspiracy, and other charges including high treason. The enthusiastic response from the overflow crowd was a de facto vote for conviction on all counts.


How Major Mass US Media Help Demonize Iran

comment by Larry Ross
August 9, 2007

This important story details how major US media, such as the New York Times and one of it's so-called reporters help to demonise Iran using false accusations such as "killing 5 US soldiers". Big lies and false accusations shape US pubic attitudes to hate Iran and thus approve a future US war on Iran . Many such unsubstantiated accusations are made. This time a top US newspaper with a prestigious reputation has joined directly in the 'demonise Iran ' campaign of the Bush Administration. The NYT played the same role in helping condition the US public to accept Bush's lies and false accusations against Iraq before the war in 2003. They still do. So far as I know the NYT has not admitted it's pro-war propaganda role before and during the infamous Iraq war.

US Republicans favour Iran nuclear strike

Republican candidates for US president agreed on Tuesday that Iran must not develop atomic weapons even if a tactical nuclear strike is needed to stop it and accused Democrats of being soft on the issue.


Hillary, Hiroshima and US Hubris

by Larry Ross
August 8, 2007

US policies and attitudes have shifted from nuclear deterrence with mass destruction and mutual suicide, to nuclear weapon use against any non-nuclear nation named as a US enemy. It's well documented in the Justin Raimondo article that follows. The named enemy is Iran and Bush has invented a number of lies, false accusations and suspicions to demonise Iran to the American people. Bush used the same 'big lie' technique prior to his unprovoked attack on Iraq in 2003. Then he had the alleged 9/11 'terrorist' attack and knowingly concocted lies linking Saddam Hussein to Bin Laden and this attack. Accusations were enough and worked for Bush in spite of mass demonstrations. Although there was lots of evidence these accusations were wrong, Bush's lies - effectively promoted and repeated by the mass media - were sufficient to get public and Congressional support.

Justifying Mass Murder

by Justin Raimondo
August 8, 2007

The anniversary of the U.S. bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is, perhaps, a good time to note that arguments rationalizing and even valorizing the use of nuclear weapons, once considered beyond the pale, are now back in fashion. Here we have yet more evidence of the Bizarro Effect , which, ever since 9/11, has stood everything – especially our traditional concept of morality – on its head, not only repealing the laws of logic and common sense but also ensconcing evil in the place of good.


Another Step Towards US Dictatorship

by Larry Ross
August 7, 2007

The US Congress and mass media is meekly complying with every step Bush takes toward imposing a dictatorship on American citizens.
Only a few publications, like the San Francisco Chronicle article that follows, expose the latest Bush threat to American democracy.
Again, Bush is demonising Iran by accusing them of wanting nuclear weapons, and accusing them of aiding terrorism in his illegal Iraq War.

It doesn't require a subpoena of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales or a brave whistle-blower to find President Bush's latest affront to the U.S. Constitution.

Preparing the US Public for a Terrorist Attack

by Larry Ross
July 31, 2007

Philip Giraldi is an ex-CIA analyst and intelligence officer. He recently warned that any terrorist attack on the US would be treated as having been masterminded by Iran, to provide Bush with justification to attack Iran. This will happen even if Iran had nothing to do with such an attack.

Terrorists Are Everywhere

by Philip Giraldi
July 31, 2007

In an attempt to reverse plummeting approval ratings, the Bush administration is mounting an unprecedented, sustained campaign of disinformation on the terrorist threat confronting the United States. Even the mainstream media has noted how the White House has attempted falsely to tie al-Qaeda to the war in Iraq, with President Bush increasing the number of references to the group in speeches made during the month of July. On July 10, al-Qaeda was referred to 30 times in a Cleveland speech on the Iraq war. By July 25, the president referred to al-Qaeda no less than 95 times in a speech made before a group of airmen in Charleston, S.C.


Will US Allow Bush To Bomb Iran Soon?

by Larry Ross
July 29, 2007

Dr Frank gave us an important insight into the mental workings and decision-making of George Bush (below). Unless impeachment proceedings begin very soon, Dr Frank predicts Bush will attack Iran. It is not so much a matter of Bush deciding not to take this course, as the US Congress deciding to stop him before he can do it, and/or the US  military deciding not to implement a Bush command to strike Iran, because their loyalty to the US Constitution trumps Bush commands.
Unfortunately both possibilities are not strong and Bush has surrounded himself with yes men who will obey his every command.

Dangers of a Cornered George Bush

By Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity & Dr. Justin Frank
July 27, 2007
The “new” strategy of surging troops in Baghdad has simply wasted more lives and bought some time for the president. His strategy boils down to keeping as many of our soldiers engaged as possible, in order to stave off definitive defeat in Iraq before January 2009.
Bush is commander in chief, but Congress must approve funding for the war, and its patience is running out. The war – and the polls – are going so badly that it is no longer a sure thing that the administration will be able to fund continuance of the war.
There is an outside chance Congress will succeed in forcing a pullout starting in the next several months. What would the president likely do in reaction to that slap in the face?

Bush May Declare Martial Law

comment by Larry Ross
July 29, 2007
The following article by Dave Lindorff, author of "The Case For Impeachment", leaves no doubt that the American system is being geared for Bush to declare Martial law when and if he decides to proceed with the neocon plans for war with Iran. This will probably take place after a terrorist incident against the US - perhaps a US-staged 'false flag' attack on the US and blaming Iran.

Impeach Now - Or Face the End of Constitutional Democracy

by Paul Craig Roberts
July 17, 2007
Unless Congress immediately impeaches Bush and Cheney, a year from now the US could be a dictatorial police state at war with Iran.
Bush has put in place all the necessary measures for dictatorship in the form of "executive orders" that are triggered whenever Bush declares a national emergency. Recent statements by Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff, former Republican senator Rick Santorum and others suggest that Americans might expect a series of staged, or false flag, "terrorist" events in the near future.

The Threat Of Martial Law Is Real

by Dave Lindorff
July 27, 2007
The looming collapse of the US military in Iraq, of which a number of generals and former generals, including former Chief of Staff Colin Powell, have warned, is happening none too soon, as it my be the best hope for preventing military rule here at home.
From the looks of things, the Bush/Cheney regime has been working assiduously to pave the way for a declaration of military rule, such that at this point it really lacks only the pretext to trigger a suspension of Constitutional government. They have done this with the active support of Democrats in Congress, though most of the heavy lifting was done by the last, Republican-led Congress.
  US War On Iraq Planned Before Bush Became President
by Larry Ross
July 25, 2007

Although the Iraq war was planned before 9/11, as we and many others have said, this 2002 article reminds us of the details. It is staggering and stupefying that the US people, Congress, and media swallowed Bush's lies about the reasons for his war on Iraq when the true facts about Bush's motives and plans were well known. The article indicates the complicity of the media, Congress and others in helping the Bush regime implement its war plans and repeat his many lies. It is only with the help of the media that Bush lies triumphed over the truth and sold most Americans on the justification for war.

  Let's Not Forget: Bush Planned Iraq 'Regime Change' Before Becoming President
by Neil Mackay

15 September 2002: A SECRET blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime change' even before he took power in January 2001.
The blueprint, uncovered by the Sunday Herald, for the creation of a 'global Pax Americana' was drawn up for Dick Cheney (now vice- president), Donald Rumsfeld (defence secretary), Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld's deputy), George W Bush's younger brother Jeb and Lewis Libby (Cheney's chief of staff). The document, entitled Rebuilding America's Defences : Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century, was written in September 2000 by the neo-conservative think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

  Theft of Your Civil Liberties
by Larry Ross
July 25, 2007

This is a definitive account about how the Bush Administration has used the 9/11 attack to destroy freedom and democracy in America.
They have systematically removed many civil rights and liberties of Americans and visitors and enacted a myriad of new laws and regulations. These repressive measures may well effect other governments some of whom may enact similar repressive measures. At the same time Bush has decreed and legislated greatly increased power for himself and his administration. In effect he has become a de facto dictator

Today's America is a much less free place than the America of 2000. Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Bush administration has, by word and by deed, erected an edifice of repression here in the United States.
We've been living in it ever since. And it's not a comfortable place. The government is monitoring your phone calls and can read your e-mails and open your snail mail.
The government can access records of your large financial transactions, such as buying a house.

  False Flags May Start Iran War and Bush Dictatorship
comment by Larry Ross
July 19, 2007

Paul Craig Roberts knows what's really happening and likely to happen in Washington. He was a top official in the Reagan Administration and assistant editor of the Wall Street Journal. His dire warnings about the disasters to follow if Bush, Cheney and others are not impeached should be a spur to action.
All the indications are for a US war on Iran and all the machinery is in place for Bush to declare a crisis situation and make the US his dictatorship.
Of particular importance is Roberts warnings that Bush will stage a 'false flag' covert attack on the US and then blame Iran as a justification for war and a US dictatorship.

  Analysis of Bush Dictatorship
by Larry Ross
July 18, 2007

It is really a matter of objectively considering the facts, cutting through the double think, propaganda and party loyalties to make an honest analysis - and perhaps face some very unpleasant facts and suspicions. Some of the best analysts are from the right of the political spectrum - people like John Paul Roberts and Morgan Reynolds. I really respect and feature their work although I would be labelled as from the left of the political spectrum. In fact I'm neither right nor left and reject this kind of 'don't think' labelling.
The labels 'right and left' when applied to people or political thoughts often inhibits a rational consideration of the issue at hand. The tendency is to generate an immediate bias and then dismiss the issue without consideration.

  General George Bush: America's Presidential-Military Dictator
by Jo Swift
July 16, 2007
Bush emphasized the role of the military as a counterweight to public opinion. He outlined a concept of presidential power that upholds the military as a critical “constituency” rising above, and placed in opposition to, the American people.
Every would-be dictator claims that his authoritarian measures are taken to ensure national security. Everything else must be sacrificed, including democratic rights. This is the basic line that has been utilized by the government since 9/11 to lay siege to constitutionally protected democratic rights, in the name of the “war on terror”.
  False Flag on Iran?
from Larry Ross
July 18, 2007

The US has already made a number of false charges against Iran - more than enough to justify a war. Bush may feel he does not need to stage a false flag attack on the US and blame Iran in order to justify his planned attack. He has already invented enough lies to blame Iran , as he did before his attack on Iraq. Congress has given Bush an open door for a new war and the authority he needs to make a new war on Iran on top of the deepening quagmire he made in Iraq.

from Larry Ross
July 17, 2007

... Due to a 'false flag' incident in which nation One arranges a massive secret attack against nation Two, but it is made to look as if the attack came from   nation Three. The purpose is to supply the incentive and justification for nation two to make war on nation three. The entire exercise is presumed to benefit nation One - so long as their treachery is not discovered. A variation on this strategy is hinted at in many articles on a US-Israeli war on Iran.

  A Third US Aircraft Carrier to Boost Attack on Iran?
by Larry Ross
July 12, 2007

If the US is planning to launch a pre-emptive nuclear attack on Iran soon, they would strenuously deny it, and strenuously deny that their unprecedented military build up off Iran's coast, including this third aircraft carrier is in preparation for such a strike. The whole strategy behind a pre-emptive strike is that the intended target is caught by surprise and doesn't know what's coming. It is quite vital to the attacker, that the victim is unprepared for both the attack and to make any possible retaliation.

  A third US carrier, the USS Enterprise Strike Group is speeding towards the Persian Gulf
Liberty Post

According to DEBKA file's military sources, the US naval build-up off the shores of Iran marks rising military tensions in the region, accentuated by last week's Hamas victory which has endowed Iran with a military foothold on Israel's southwestern border.
The USS Enterprise CVN 65-Big E Strike Group will join the USS Stennis and the USS Nimitz carriers, building up the largest sea, air, marine concentration the United States has ever deployed opposite Iran. This goes towards making good on the assurances of four carriers US Vice President Dick Cheney offered the Gulf and Middle East nations during his May tour of the region.

  The War On Conciousness
by Larry Ross
July 9, 2007

I totally agree with this essay. In many ways it is very similar to what I have been saying on my website which covers many of the subjects mentioned. My only worry is that there is not the time or resources required to reach enough people that will somehow prevent the Bush regime from carrying out their agenda. ...
Bush is a committed 'End Times' believer, who thinks he is doing God's will by bring on Armageddon. This ending is looked forward to by a powerful minority of Americans. Their leaders have access to, and much influence on Bush.

  The War on Consciousness
by Paul Levy

We are truly in a war. It is not the war we imagine we are in, which is the way our true adversaries want it. It is not a foreign war against a foreign enemy. It is a war on consciousness, a war on our own minds. The global war on terror that is being fought around the world is an embodied reflection in the material world of a deeper, more fundamental war that is going on in the realm of consciousness itself.

  The Backbone of Fascism is Public Apathy
by Larry Ross
June 28, 2007

Every dictatorship depends on apathy, ignorance, confusion created by pro-dictatorship propaganda, disinterest, gullibility, criminal or and/or self-interest of its victims, and fear of reprisals by people if they openly oppose the emerging or established dictatorship. These factors are enough to silence and/or prevent most opposition. The recent Fiji military dictatorship is a good example. It was a simple military takeover, using a flimsy excuse of combating corruption.
Another emerging dictatorship is the Bush Administration. It is far more complex and sophisticated as one of its objects is to convert the world's greatest democracy into a tightly-controlled military state while never admitting what its true objectives are. It's major cover story and justification is the 9/11 attack and their response "wars on terror". So far, that simple formula has worked well, and allowed the Bush regime to achieve a formidable success. It has all the elements mentioned above.

For Congress and the American people to accept that, even share in it, and Parry's following paper, is an awesome demonstration of how far Bush and his Administration have progressed toward the neocon's aim of global domination.

... Americans will be fooled again and swallow any accusation Bush offers, as they did with his litany of lies to justify the war on Iraq. They have not been educated about how the US and other states have used covert 'false flag' operations and then blamed the nation they wish to attack. They have been conditioned to believe a similar litany of lies about Iran and most now regard Iran with fear and hate, as do the Republicans below. The 'false flag' provides them with phony 'justification' for an attack and they will believe Iran did it.

by Paul Craig Roberts

American soldiers have been fighting and dying in Iraq since 2003, and Americans do not know why.
All the reasons President Bush gave us for his war are false. Bush said he invaded Iraq “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.”

by Matthew Rothschild
May 18, 2007

With scarcely a mention in the mainstream media, President Bush has ordered up a plan for responding to a catastrophic attack.
In a new National Security Presidential Directive, Bush lays out his plans for dealing with a “catastrophic emergency.”
Under that plan, he entrusts himself with leading the entire federal government, not just the Executive Branch.
And he gives himself the responsibility “for ensuring constitutional government.”
He laid this all out in a document entitled " National Security Presidential Directive /NSPD 51" and "Homeland Security Presidential Directive/HSPD-20."

  The 9/11 Attacks Were Made In The USA
comment by Larry Ross
May 31, 2007

The more I read, the more convinced I am that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job engineered by the Bush Administration. But I would be relieved to be able to change my mind if anyone was able to answer the many questions on our site. They can start with the amazing facts and questions below. This was a major false flag operation that worked well and was believed. It still serves as a launch pad for Bush's 'wars on terror'. Because of his very low popularity and growing public doubts, the Bush Administration will probably launch another convincing 'false flag' like 9/11, then blame Iran as justification to launch his much rumoured attack on Iran. He has marshalled a huge naval strike force of ships and planes off Iran's coast for this purpose.

Bush could start a war with Iran anytime with a surprise pre-emptive strike, perhaps nuclear as mentioned by several informed commentators. He may not wait until 2008. Bush will need some kind of event or manufactured provocation he can use to justify a sudden attack.

I'm convinced President Bush will order the bombing of Iran's nuclear facilties in 2008, - for three reasons. .....

  Right Wing Itches to Strike Iran

by John Tillman

May 26, 2007

The hard right in the U.S. has tried to exploit the arrest of Middle East scholar Haleh Esfandiari to create a reason for America's conservatives to attack Iran.
Beyond the simple human rights considerations, there are two other aspects of this grim matter that deserve mention. First is the way in which the intellectual elite in this country pick and choose their battles. Haleh Esfandiari, whom I know, certainly deserves the protest being stirred on her behalf. But we have many cases of abuse of freedom of travel and speech -- some committed by the U.S. government -- that gain little notice. Why some and not others? To some extent, the protest in effect reflects U.S. policy preferences and the drumbeat of anti-Iran media coverage in this country.

Colonel Lankford suggests you use Google to verify any comments he makes. He mentions a number of whistle blowers in government or University that have asked awkward questions or exposed Government lies about 9/11. Many have suffered the consequences of their honesty. A growing number of people who have researched the 9/11 questions, have become convinced that the Bush Administration staged a 'false flag' terrorist attack on the US to create a false 'Pearl Harbour'. The intention was to get public support to make war under the new catch-all slogan of 'war on terrorism'.

I thought that Habaes Corpus was fundamental to our civil rights, and now I find that it is not. I thought my country stood for honorable dealings with other nations, then watch a jingoistic cheerleading orgy on TV, composed like Oscar night, with the centerpiece a campaign of "Shock and Awe" as our armed forces invade a practically defenseless nation, without provocation, while considerable doubt of the validity of the reasons for that invasion exists.


US New Nuclear Targets and Weapons

comment by Larry Ross
May 5, 2007

New expanded US nuclear weapons programme, and new pre-emptive strategies to use them. That is the policy of the Bush neocon administration as described below by William Hartung. ...
... How come people tolerate this and say they will start protesting if he starts? But once a conventional or nuclear attack is launched, and Bush uses the 'crisis' to advance his domestic programme to systematically introduce a military dictatorship - protest, if it happens at all, will make little difference.
Protest or ' Impeach Bush' action after the damage and genocide has been done, will be too late.

  Duck and Cover
by William D. Hartung and Frida Berrigan
April 30, 2007

The Bush admininstration's "Complex 2030" plan is reviving the nuclear threat
Only days before the fifth anniversary of September 11, President George W. Bush addressed military officers in Washington to warn that nuclear-armed terrorists could "blackmail the free world and spread their ideologies of hate and raise a moral threat to America." This alarmist vision was accompanied by the White House's release of "A National Strategy for Combating Terrorism," which painted a picture of a "troubling potential WMD terrorism nexus emanating from Tehran." The administration is building the case for war against Iran--a job made easier by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent announcement that Iran can now enrich uranium on an industrial scale--despite the fact that many Iran-watchers and nuclear experts consider their claims of enrichment capacity to be an overblown boast.

All that is needed as Brzezinski warned is "a staged provocation in Iraq or a false flag terror attack within the US". Given these dire warnings about something that could spiral into a World War III or endless wider wars with disastrous horrific consequences, why do people seem so unconcerned?

... Brzezinski was careful to highlight the word "defensive" as if to discount its credibility, suggesting that the Bush White House itself would be behind the attack or provocation and subsequently use it as a pretext for war.

Donna Thorne writes below, a penetrating analysis with warnings about Bush's imposition of a police state on Americans in the name of protecting US freedom and democracy.
More Americans now believe that their democratic America has come under the control of a criminal conspiracy, with a genius for persuading people that 'black is white' - 'war is peace' and 'self-imposed slavery today will guarantee freedom tomorrow'. In short George Orwell's book "1984" has come to full flower in the USA today.

In this era of perpetual warfare, escalating domestic tyranny, government-sanctioned torture, and a Nazi-like pursuit of Middle-East domination, one would expect, at the very least, an audible outcry from the People who proclaim resolute devotion to the ideals of liberty and justice for all. Yet for the most part, Mainstream America continues to assume a posture of apathy, bitterness, or eery silence.

  Preparing US-UK Publics To Support Attack on Iran
comment by Larry Ross
April 22, 2007

The following article in the London Times is a good example of US-UK collaboration in planting false stories to justify an attack on Iran. Tony Blair is probably staying in office as a trusted US war collaborator until sometime after the US launches the attack. The comments following the article are most valuable in pointing out how closely this false story is to the ones the UK used to justify the Bush-Blair illegal war on Iraq. M15 and other intelligence agencies in the UK and US are now an integral part of the US-UK deception campaign......
Just as the Germans believed Hitler's lies, so the US-UK publics are likely to believe really 'big lies' about Iran. Murdock is the man to give these lies to the people using the London Times.
Some newspapers in New Zealand are playing a similar role, often choosing to reprint blatant propaganda stories from the Murdock paper, in preference to more balanced comment and objective real news stories, such as one sees in The Guardian or Independent.

  Al-Qaeda‘planning big British attack'
The Sunday Times
April 22, 2007

AL-QAEDA leaders in Iraq are planning the first “large-scale” terrorist attacks on Britain and other western targets with the help of supporters in Iran, according to a leaked intelligence report.   - We have seen these before too!
Spy chiefs warn that one operative had said he was planning an attack on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki” in an attempt to “shake the Roman throne”, a reference to the West.
Another plot could be timed to coincide with Tony Blair stepping down as prime minister, an event described by Al-Qaeda planners as a “change in the head of the company”.               But - Who is doing this plotting and timing?

  US Republican Party Only 30% Support
comment by Larry Ross
April 21, 2007

Long Time Republican tells about the deterioration of his old Party the rise of Bush 'brown shirt' fascism and the parlous state of affairs inside America.
It's information everyone should know - not just in the US. Because if the Bush regime survives, and tricks the public into supporting a war on Iran, its fascist tendencies are likely to expand and reach eventually reach into the politics of other countries. This is another important reason to stop Bush. The most important reason is that if he starts another larger war in the Middle East - Iran - and others later, he could easily trigger a world war III. He must be impeached for his crimes and lies, before he goes on to commit far worse crimes such as endless, expanding wars.

  The Party of Brownshirts
by Paul Craig Roberts
April 16, 2007

Neoconservatives have turned the Republican Party into a Brownshirt Party. 
Look at the evidence.  While real patriots flee the party, the remaining supporters cling to power by asserting dictatorial dominance for President Bush.  The Republican Attorney General denies that the US Constitution provides habeas corpus protection to American citizens.  Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney, Republican candidates for the 2008 presidential campaign, believe the president has the power to imprison US citizens indefinitely without warrants or trials.  The “conservative” Federalist Society favors concentrating more power in the executive. Neoconservative ideologues claim the right to impose American hegemony over all others--especially over Muslims. 

  Damming Evidence of 9/11 Cover-up
by Larry Ross
April 6, 2007

This damming new evidence links those accused of 9/11 crimes, with the CIA and FBI. It is particularly persuasive along with the other evidence presented by the 9/11 Truth movement and other similar groups. It seems ever more obvious that the Bush Administration and various government departments, were deeply involved in the 9/11 attacks, and have been trying to cover up their tracks ever since. Because so many Americans have made similar conclusions, the Bush Administration must be feeling the pressure, and the threat of exposure.

  Bush Regime Worsens Guantanamo Bay Conditions
by Larry Ross
April 6, 2007

Guantanamo Bay and similar US prisons in countries using torture, are an important part of the Bush regime's plan for US global domination.
The destruction of civil rights, habeas corpus, imprisonment with our charge or trial, torture, rendition and murder are indications that Bush is introducing fascist-type controls in the US.
Guantanamo Bay and similar US prisons are established to spread hatred and fear of the US , make new enemies and terrorise the world's population.

With Truth Comes Awakening - The suppression of truth has long been among the highest priorities for the upper echelons of power and authority.
For a minority elite that clings to power by the manipulation of the masses using an omnipresent cocktail of lies, deception, mass-produced ignorance and ingrained propaganda, the destruction of truth is an essential method of control.  It is a formula that has worked to unmitigated success for the elite throughout history, whether the shadows of power stretch from ancient pyramids, marble temples, castles, mansions or halls of governance.  Those holding the levers of power and control understand, better than most, that the dissemination of truths to a blind majority could spell the end of their reign, for truth brings sight to the blind. 

  Mormons Desert Bush's Iraq War
by Larry Ross
April 5, 2007

The increasing loss of religious right believers in Bush's wars, such as the Mormons (below), is another indicator that Bush will likely resort to some extreme action - such as a sudden pre-emptive nuclear attack on Iran. If he fabricates and constructs any excuse, or false flag event and blames Iran, the US mass media will leap on the pro-war bandwagon, repeating his every lie or excuse without criticism.

  WTC 7 Demolition on 9//11
by Larry Ross
April 5 , 2007

The following was one of the many comments after an article on AlterNet about Rosie O'Donnell, a well-known American comedienne, by Joshua Holland. Rosie had some very valid observations and doubts about the official story on 9/11, especially the destruction of the 3rd building - WTC 7. AlterNet writer Joshua Holland does not like doubts expressed about the official 9/11 story, claiming such doubts devalue the criticisms of Bush's wars. So he rubbished her doubts, while carefully skirting the demolition theory on the destruction of WTC 7. 
In declaring doubts on 9/11 to be ' off-limits', if not crazy 'conspiracy theories' Holland reveals his mental limitations.
Prof David Ray Griffin's new book: "Debunking the Debunker" exposes the flaws in the Popular Mechanics defence of the official story. Joshua Holland, if he is sincere, would probably change his views on the official 9/11 story if he could bring himself to read this book.

  Blair's Brinkmanship with Iran
by Larry Ross
March 31, 2007

Tony Blair set up the situation for confrontation with Iran. He positioned the UK navy close to Iran, then provoked a military policing reaction from Iran in disputed waters. Iran was defending it's territorial waters. Blair, having succeeded with this provocation, is expanding the dispute with Iran rather than look for a peaceful resolution of what should be regarded as a trivial incident.

The Bush administration continues moving closer to a nuclear attack on Iran, and we ignore the obvious buildup at our peril.
Russian media is sounding alarms. In February, ultra-nationalist leader Vladimir Shirinovsky warned that the US would launch a strike against Tehran at the end of this month. Then last week, the Russian News and Information Agency Novosti (RIA-Novosti) quoted military experts predicting the US will attack Iran on April 6th, Good Friday.

Some of the many lies used by leaders to get popular support for their wars are mentioned below. Ask yourself why people believe such lies and never seem to learn? One reason is that they are conditioned by the mass media to believe, follow and obey their leader. John Helmer illuminates this.
Inadvertently, he may have started his article with a lie - that David Kelly committed suicide. That is the official version. But many examining doctors disagree with the suicide story. They don't presume to say who may have done it to Kelly, but that someone must have staged it, because the forensic evidence did not support the suicide story. John Helmer has certainly had the journalistic war experience to justify his comments.

  Perfidious Albion and the lying American
March 29, 2007

Wars usually start with one large lie. Throwing more troops into the breach requires a great many little lies. Wars usually end when the lying can't staunch the bleeding, and the stench.
According to the wife of the David Kelly, the British Defense Ministry expert on Iraqi weapons who committed suicide last Friday by cutting his left wrist, and bleeding to death while on painkillers, "this was not really the kind of world he wanted to live in". But the kind of world prime ministers of England and presidents of the United States hatch, when they go to war together, should have been familiar to Kelly, as he was old enough to remember the Vietnam War.

by Larry Ross
March 29, 2007

Professor Griffin's new book "Debunking 9/11 Debunking" meticulously dissects the flaws in Bush's official story about the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
Paul Craig Roberts gives a splendid review of it below and agrees with its findings. But the implications that the Official Story of the 9/11 attacks was basically a collection of lies and myths is not examined in detail in this article. However the appalling conclusions and implications must be made.

  9/11 and the Evidence
by Paul Craig Roberts
March 27, 2007

The 9/11 attack has been used to start wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, to plan an attack on Iran, to curtail constitutional protections and civil liberties in the US, to radically expand US military budgets and the power of the executive, and to enrich entrenched vested interests.
Professor David Ray Griffin is the nemesis of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory.  In his latest book, Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin destroys the credibility of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Popular Mechanics reports, annihilates his critics, and proves himself to be a better scientist and engineer than the defenders of the official story.

If the mass media informed the public about Bush's lies to fool the people and Congress into supporting his war on Iraq, and how it violates the US Constitution and international law, and his preparations to use nuclear weapons on Iran, based on the same type of lies, the Polls would be much higher against Bush and his illegal wars. However telling the truth about the Bush Administration and its phony war on terrorism, is not something the media would do. Their role has been to act as cheerleaders for Bush and his wars, repeating his every lie, and preventing the truth from being known.

The "war on terror" has created a culture of fear in America. The Bush administration's elevation of these three words into a national mantra since the horrific events of 9/11 has had a pernicious impact on American democracy, on America's psyche and on U.S. standing in the world. Using this phrase has actually undermined our ability to effectively confront the real challenges we face from fanatics who may use terrorism against us.

Karen Kwiatkowski is an ex-US Air Force Lieut. Colonel and a very perceptive well informed writer on real US military objectives and policies.
Her warnings of a US attack on Iran soon, after staging some kind of provocation that can be blamed on Iran as an excuse, must be taken seriously.
My own view, as readers know from my previous articles, is that the US will stage a 'false flag' allegedly terrorist attack on the US like 9/11, for which Iran will be blamed, to provide Bush with the kind of serious excuse he needs to get public and Congressional support for a nuclear attack on Iran.

The Cheney speech to AIPAC – reassuring militant rightwingers in Israel and the US that America is leaning forward on Iran, and that we are never leaving Iraq – was filled with honesty and conviction, and gives us a clear window into the administration's thinking.
Cheney's description of terrorists is somewhat emotional and overblown. Calling them "freedom's enemies," he comes dangerously close to describing this administration's id. His emphasis on one-side's victims in last summer's war with Lebanon, and his proud silence on the thousands killed, injured, made homeless and jobless by American weaponry is also understandable as he speaks to the AIPAC audience.

  US Plans To Stay in Iraq
by Larry Ross
March 22, 2007

The Bush regime would not have built such a huge embassy (see below) if it had not planned to occupy Iraq indefinitely. It is a demonstration that that the talk of withdrawing US troops at some point has always been a diversion and never a serious intention of the Bush regime.
This Imperial complex of 21 buildings on 104 acres in the heart of Baghdad , with 5,000 employees, must be intended to be much more than just an embassy to Iraq . It looks like some kind of permanent headquarters for the US in the Middle East - perhaps a centre for directing most regional  US operations in the area.

The headline reads: "Thousands of angry Iraqis pillage billion-dollar U.S. Embassy in Baghdad." The article details the ransacking of the grandiose American Embassy by Iraqi mobs.
This is the story I expect to read one day within the next decade.
In the 1950s, when I was in high school in Baghdad, my friends and I admired the technological advances of America and the West. But we resented the colonial tendencies of the West (especially, at the time, those of the British). Many demonstrations were held in front of the British and American embassies. The Iraqis are a proud people, and they resented foreigners meddling in their affairs. And the British were, in reality, running the country through a puppet regime.

I have always admired George Monbiot's articles about the Iraq war and the Bush Administration. That makes it very hard to understand why Monbiot rubbished those very eminent well-known writers and scholars who questioned the official 9/11 story.

  George Bush's Samson Option
by Stephen Lendman
March 9, 2007

Full-scale war on Iran may just be a concocted terrorist attack away from starting the "shock and awe."
The Samson Option is terminology used to explain Israel's intention to use its nuclear arsenal as an ultimate defense strategy if its leaders feel threatened enough to think they have no alternative. It comes from the biblical Samson said to have used his great strength to bring down the pillars of a Philistine temple, downing its roof and killing himself and thousands of Philistine tormentors. It's a strategy saying if you try killing me, we'll all die together, or put another way, we'll all go together when we go. Richard Wagner had his apocalyptic version in the last of his four operas of Der Ring des Nibelungen - Gotterdammerung, or Twilight of the Gods based on Norse mythology referring to a prophesied war of the Gods resulting in the end of the world.

  Americans Have Lost Their Country
by Paul Craig Roberts
March 1, 2007

The Bush-Cheney regime is America's first neoconservative regime. In a few short years, the regime has destroyed the Bill of Rights, the separation of powers, the Geneva Conventions, and the remains of America's moral reputation along with the infrastructures of two Muslim countries and countless thousands of Islamic civilians. Plans have been prepared, and forces moved into place, for an attack on a third Islamic country, Iran, and perhaps Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon as well.

February 28, 2007

This article presents a complete picture of how Bush is converting democratic America to Fascist America.
All the steps and legislative acts empowering Bush are shown. All he needs is an event that produces shock, horror, and fear in Americans such as that produced by the 9/11 attack. After that Bush was the hero saving America from terrorism. His popularity soared and he could do anything he wanted and he was given unprecedented power to wage war, even nuclear war, arrest, imprison and torture anyone, and without trial or even accusation.

February 25, 2007

Many Americans who look into 9/11 questions may be terrified at the thought that a criminal conspiracy has taken over control of America, that the US military has been part of the conspiracy and cover up, and that it controls the worlds biggest nuclear arsenal - enough weapons to kill all life on earth many times over. It is not surprising that many will choose to disbelieve the story, regardless of proofs, or place it in the 'too hard' basket.

Mark H. Gaffney  ICH
February 19, 2007

. . . Side by side, the two documents are almost identical. But there is one difference. The new order includes an extra passage in the policy section that mentions two new kinds of airborne vehicles, “unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)” and “remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).” The order states that these are to be regarded as “a potential threat to public safety.” But why did two new categories of aerial vehicles require the drafting of a new order, especially since the basic policy did not change? I puzzled over this for some time, until I stumbled upon a news story about the Global Hawk, prompting further investigations. These have convinced me that the June 1, 2001 pentagon order could be one of the keys to what happened on 9/11.

  US To Commit Mass Genocide In Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
February 20, 2007

Bush is already one of history's most monstrous war criminals having lied to gain support for his illegal invasion and bombing of Iraq and killing some 500,000 Iraqis as well as provoking a civil war there. Now he is close to committing a far greater genocide crime with his 'Operation Iranian Freedom' involving the US bombing of some 10,000 targets in Iran. He may use nuclear weapons, as suggested by other articles, or conventional weapons as suggested here. Either way there will be thousands of Iranians murdered, perhaps millions, by Bush's assault in cold blood for no legitimate reason. With the crazy logic of Bush's tiny group of neocon madmen, anything goes.

The Bush administration's preparation to strike Iran is complete with the top commander of the US Central Command having received computerised plans for ‘Operation Iranian Freedom', a report has said.
"American military operations for a major conventional war with Iran extend far beyond targeting suspect WMD (weapons of mass destruction) facilities and will enable President George Bush to destroy Iran's military, political and economic infrastructure overnight using conventional weapons," the journal New Statesman has claimed.

  False Flag To Justify US War On Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
February 16, 2007

Here is the best article so far, that spells out the probability that the US will stage a 'False Flag' operation, in which Iran is blamed for an attack on US territory or military forces, in order to supply the Bush regime with a pretext for attacking Iran. The larger the Bush-staged attack and the more casualties, the more people will be outraged and believe Bush and his war propaganda that Iran is guilty of this crime, and that Bush could never do such a murderous act on his own people. If the mass media in the US and in US-owned or influenced media in other countries, repeats without question this gigantic lie, as they have similar lies about the so-called Iraq threat since 2001, then it is likely that most of the population will believe the lie.

  Bush Iran War Agenda: Trigger an "Accidental Conflict," as a pretext to justify "Limited Strikes"
by Deniz Yeter
February 13, 2007

. . . When asked why the Bush Administration was seeking to do this, she responded that it is a part of Bush's broader agenda for the Middle East to bring about a "democratization... peace and stability", to the region.      
Of course, one only has to look back to history to see the Bush Administration's real agenda behind confronting Iran. Iran is only one piece of the puzzle in a broader, century long struggle by the US, Britain, and its Western allies to secure the Middle East's oil reserves.

  Refusal of Military Orders
Comment by Larry Ross
February 14, 2007

The war plans against Iran are based on a series of lies, false accusations and false and/or doctored intelligence. It is similar to the US basis for making illegal war on Iraq in 2003. The same techniques of war propaganda and tricks to deceive the public and mass media manipulation are being used.
The consequences of the war are likely to be far more disastrous than with the calamitous Iraq war and the public are now far more suspicious of the Bush Administration. It has now rejected his Iraq war and wants the troops brought home. So to get a measure of public support for a new major war, Bush is likely to stage a major act of provocation, such as a phoney terrorist attack on the US , then blame Iran and use it as a justification for war.

  An Appeal to Conscience to Those Who Would Bomb Iran
by US Army Reserves Colonel (Retired) Ann Wright
February 13, 2007

George Bush is going to war again. We see it in the Bush administration's rhetoric about Iran's nuclear program. We see it in the Bush administration's commentary on Iran's reported role in training and equipping Iraqis who are fighting US forces that have invaded and occupied that country. We see it in the Bush administration's criticism of Iran's role in funding and equipping Hezbollah in Lebanon. We see it in the Bush administration's direction to the US military to detain Iranian diplomats in Iraq, breach diplomatic facilities, and capture or kill Iranian operatives in Iraq. We see it in the deployment of the third US Naval carrier group (twenty more ships) to the Gulf.

Brezinski analyses the war in Iraq, why it happened, what will happen, and how Bush may blame Iran as justification for war, and what should be done to end the quagmire - all in half a page. Brilliant. He also says "the administration is developing a mythical, historical narrative to justify the case for a protracted  and potential expanding war...with much of the world of Islam at large" The big question is: will the US Senate allow him to do it? Or get serious about stopping him in time. Impeachment may be the only way.

Washington - Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S. national security adviser, told Congress the war in Iraq is a calamity and likely to lead to "a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large."
Testifying before the Senate foreign relations committee Thursday, Brzezinski skewered U.S. administration policy as driven by "imperial hubris" and a disaster on historic, strategic and moral grounds.
While other former U.S. officials and ex-generals have criticized administration policy in committee hearings, none savaged it to the degree Brzezinski did.

Comment by Larry Ross

The US and Israel are planning a nuclear war on Iran. Other nations know of this insanity yet do nothing.  
Many supposedly sane Americans either know of, or are participating like cogs in a huge wheel of war. It is remarkable to witness so many people being involved in a process that can result in "an epoch of nuclear wars" even taking "the whole of mankind a step closer to total catastrophe.", as warned by Dmitriy Sedov in his essay below.

  A Strike on Iran would signify the Beginning of an Epoch of Nuclear War
by Dmitriy Sedov
February 10, 2007

In my paper entitled “2007: Opening a New Page in the World's History” , published in September, 2006, I examined the possibility that a US strike on Iran using small-scale nuclear munitions [mini-nukes] would be launched, and that the strike would become the beginning of an epoch of nuclear wars. There were various responses to the paper. Some authors, including recognized experts, doubted the possibility of such a development. At present, few people doubt that there will be a strike on Iran. Rather, the question is whether nuclear or conventional weapons will be used in the offensive.

  Iraq Quagmire: US Insanity Rules
Comment by Larry Ross
February 8, 2007

"What's going on in Washington is unbelievable" says Larry Derfner. How true. "Bush is getting away with it. He's escalating the war in Iraq.
He's sending 21.500 more soldiers over there. Nobody's stopping him, nobody's going to, either - not the Democrats, not the Republicans and not American public opinion." Derfner wrote.
What Derfner did not say, is that US escalation in Iraq is part of the preparation for a sudden US attack on Iran, which in turn is part of the neocon plan for US domination of middle east oil resources.
The current increase of US demonization of Iran and increase in Bush lies as justification for military action is influencing US public opinion to hate and fear Iran as the number one enemy of the US. Only a small handful of US politicians challenge Bush's lies, and they don't get reported.

The US war with Iran is on schedule according to this impressive collection of articles by Evan Peterson, and will be arranged before the end of April 2007. In spite of millions of articles on Google about it and increasing US news coverage, the New Zealand media has managed to keep Kiwis in the dark about these extraordinary and dangerous developments, while repeating Bush's litany of lies about Iran.. New Zealanders and their politicians are living in a bubble of ignorance and one wonders if that is deliberate. Or is it just a lazy, arrogant, smug "ignorance-is-king" attitude on the part of the press?

Will a similar incident like the Gulf of Tonkin attack during the Vietnam War in 1964 be used by Bush as a pretext for war with Iran?
Will it fool congress and the people as it did in 1964?  That a big war may soon erupt is no secret as there are over 21 million articles on "Nuclear War With Iran" from a Google search.
That does not mean people know about it. They don't.

Russian Ex-Chief of Defence, General Ivashov's analysis is very similar to many articles on our website and in my comments. I think it is one of the most informed professional analysis so far of US intentions to nuclear bomb Iran. He even refers to a pretext or what many have referred to as a "False Flag" incident to get the Senate and Congress to give their approval for a nuclear attack on Iran. The article should convince people that now is the time to take action if they wish to prevent a US nuclear attack on Iran and all the disastrous consequences that can follow. I can't see any effective action or purpose in protest after such an attack when casualties are already in the millions with perhaps many more to come.

by Leonid Ivashov, Global Research
January 24, 2007

In the overall flow of information coming from the Middle East, there are increasingly frequent reports indicating that within several months from now the US will deliver nuclear strikes on Iran. For example, citing well-informed but undisclosed sources, the Kuwaiti Arab Times wrote that the US plans to launch a missile and bomb attack on the territory of Iran before the end of April, 2007. The campaign will start from the sea and will be supported by the Patriot missile defense systems in order to let the US forces avoid a ground operation and to reduce the efficiency of the return strike by “any Persian Gulf country”.

  Telling Americans about False Flag
Comment by Larry Ross
January 24, 2007

At last a courageous US politician, Congressman Ron Paul, has warned fellow Americans that the Bush Administration may stage a false flag operation to incriminate Iran.
Bush can then blame Iran and justify his decision to attack Iran. Many of the comments that follow this short news item suggest that the US will stage some kind of nuclear attack on its own citizens to justify Bush's planned nuclear attack on Iran. Because of the enormous casualties and very long term disastrous consequences, it seems logical for the Bush regime to stage a very big false flag attack on the US - an attack so big, that few would believe that Bush would have or could have committed such a mass killing of Americans. If that's the way it happens, Bush should get all the support he wants, for whatever wars he wants against anyone he names. As Hitler wrote: "The bigger the lie the more people will believe it"

by Michel Chossudovsky
January 21, 2007

The World is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, "a long war", which threatens the future of humanity.
At no point since the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945, has humanity been closer to the unthinkable, a nuclear holocaust which could potentially spread, in terms of radioactive fallout, over a large part of the Middle East.
There is mounting evidence that the Bush Administration in liaison with Israel and NATO is planning the launching of a nuclear war against Iran, ironically, in retaliation for its nonexistent nuclear weapons program. The US-Israeli military operation is said to be in "an advanced state of readiness".

Here is a brilliant article by Robert Parry, adding depth and more facts to Paul Craig Roberts' articles. They all predict that Bush is defying all logic and advice, and firing those that disagree with him, in order to pursue the road to more war in Iraq , and a new nuclear war against Iran.
Parry concludes this may lead to a fiery Armageddon as I and many others have also concluded in many articles on this site.
Some suggest that an Armageddon, as predicted in the Old Testament, could be the real goal of a born-again, fundamentalist Christian President who believes he follows the advice of God, and that God sanctions his wars.

  War on Terror Part of US Strategy
Comment by Larry Ross
January 3, 2007

Professor Lustick's article below, illustrates the amazing growth in the 'War on Terror' industry throughout various sectors of American society. From Congressional estimates of 160 potential terrorist targets in 2003 to 300,000 potential fund-generating targets in 2006. From zero dollars to 650 billion dollars for anti-terrorist expenditures. It's now a huge 'pork barrel' with "thousands of interest groups crowding toward the anti-terrorism trough" according to Lustick. It's like the Tulip craze in the Netherlands in the 1600s. Anti-terrorism has now become a huge industry of vested interests depending on the continuing phoney wars on terror created by the Bush regime and its neoconservatives to justify real invasions, wars and generally enlarging real wars. As with the intended US-planned nuclear war on Iran, proof of any accusations is not required. The accusation is enough backed up by an eager mass media repeating and embellishing every lie.

by Ian S. Lustick

The official mantra is that we fight in Iraq because it is the "central front in the War on Terror." The exact opposite is the case.
We are trapped in fighting an unwinnable - even nonsensical - "war on terror" because its invention was required in order to fight in Iraq. After years of slaughter in Iraq, the neoconservative fantasy of a series of cheap, fast, neo-imperial victories is dead. But the war on terror lives on, stronger than ever.

The former New York Times Mideast Bureau chief warns that the radical Christian right is coming dangerously close to its goal of co-opting the country's military and law enforcement.
The drive by the Christian right to take control of military chaplaincies, which now sees radical Christians holding roughly 50 percent of chaplaincy appointments in the armed services and service academies, is part of a much larger effort to politicize the military and law enforcement. This effort signals the final and perhaps most deadly stage in the long campaign by the radical Christian right to dismantle America's open society and build a theocratic state. A successful politicization of the military would signal the end of our democracy.

Parry also predicts there will be "some provocation that can be blamed on Syria and Iran , thus justifying the expanded war."
My own prediction is that the "provocation" referred to by Parry, will be a vitally important False Flag operation. It would be very carefully planned by the Bush Administration to stage some kind of an attack, perhaps a terrorist attack on the US, like 9/11, for which the Bush Regime has planned to blame Iran. ...

In her historical mystery, “The Daughter of Time,” Josephine Tey (a pen name of Elizabeth MacKintosh), has Scotland Yard Inspector Alan Grant, while confined to his hospital bed, solve the 15th century murder of the two York princes in the Tower of London.  The princes were murdered by Henry VII, and the crime was blamed on Richard III in order to justify the upstart Tudor's violent seizure of the English throne.
They makes the point that if a 20th century mystery writer can detect the truth about a 15th century murder, historians have no excuse to persist in writing in school textbooks that Richard murdered his nephews. British historians remained loyal to the Tudor propaganda long after the Tudors were no longer around to be feared or served.

However like many other US commentators he doesn't mention Bush's probable use of nuclear weapons, or how Bush may use a 'False Flag' type of attack on the US then blame it on Iran , to justify a war on Iran . An attack would frighten, confuse and probably enflame the US public with increased hatred of Iran , thus gaining their support for the planned war in much the same way as their support was gained for the phoney war on Iraq.

The reaction to the Iraq Study Group (ISG) report suggests that a showdown is shaping up within the U.S. power elite between two different sets of cowboys.
On the one hand, there are the George W. Bush cowboys who want to expand their conquests from Afghanistan and Iraq into Syria and Iran. It's a natural extension of the Manifest Destiny doctrine that underpinned the conquest of the"Wild West," the annexation of almost half of Mexico's territory in the 1840s, the "opening of Japan" resulting from gunboat diplomacy in 1854, the Marines' overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, and the establishment of a colonial empire from the Pacific to the Caribbean following the Spanish-American War.

They will then support a war on Iran because of what they have been fooled into thinking that Iran has done.

A number of articles are posted on our website predicting a US war with Iran . And a Google search on this subject showed 104 million articles. Searching "US Nuclear War With Iran" showed 24.7 million articles. Therefore, a lot of very thoughtful people are deeply concerned, and writing about, this subject. And there are many indications that this nightmare will begin soon, just as there were before the illegal US bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq began in 2003.
The present Bush regime has committed multiple war crimes and violations of the US Constitution. Now, with their backs against the wall, with the "Impeach Bush" movement growing, and with Bush's popularity dropping below 30%, the Bush regime may decide their only way out is to resort to even greater crimes---such as escalating the Iraq War and making a preemptive strike with mini-nukes on Iran.

Back on October 9, I wrote in The Nation that it looked like the Bush-Cheney gang, worried about the November election, was gearing up for an unprovoked attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, with a carrier strike group led by the USS Eisenhower being ordered to depart a month early from Norfolk, VA to join the already-on-station USS Enterprise. That article was based on reports from angry sailors based on the Eisenhower who had leaked word of their mission.
There was, thankfully, no attack on Iran before Election Day, but it is starting to look like I may have been right about the plan after all, but wrong about the timing.

There was no civil war in Iraq before.  But by using what is known as "The Salvador Option" (described below by James Brook) the US rapidly turned their illegal war on Iraq  into the civil war it is today.

Comment by Larry Ross

David Corn's brilliant analysis of the Iraq war and Bush's reactions are scary as he says. Bush plans to sweep aside all expert advice and escalate the war with more troops (he invented a new term for escalating the war. He calls it a 'surge' tactic). He will also likely intensify US bombing of Iraq. However Corn does not mention that Bush may also use a ‘False Flag' attack on the US and blame Iran, then use that as his justification to both escalate the Iraq war, use nuclear weapons on Iran, and introduce fascist-type legislation in the US. This possibility has been mentioned extensively in other writings on this site.

The vice president believes that the man responsible for three of the greatest military blunders in U.S. history (attacking Iraq without devising a strategy for securing the country after the invasion; dissolving the Iraqi army, creating armed and trained recruits for the incipient insurgency; and mounting an extensive de-Baathification campaign that destroyed the governing infrastructure of the nation) did his job well.

A 'surge' of more US troops and increased US bombing of civilians will produce more desperate resistance and lead to more Iraqi and US casualties in Iraq. It is likely to be accompanied by more domestic US protest, and more US military testimony against the war, including more military resignations.

This makes the whole story of Islamic terrorism and 'war on terror' an invented phoney exercise to justify a series of wars on oil-rich and oil-producing Islamic states in the Middle East. The conspirators will deal with other states, such as oil-producing Venezuela , in different ways using different excuses.

Saturday night's national airing of "In Plane Site" on New Zealand television represents a historic turning point in the global collective consciousness regarding the terrorist attacks of September 11.  After all, it was only months after the second national airing of "In Plane Site" on Australia 's Network 10, which kicked off a firestorm of debate leading to Federal Labor politician Michael Danby's demand that the programming director of Network 10 be fired for airing the program. 

  Scholars For 9/11 Truth
Comment by Larry Ross
December 16, 2006

This is one of the best sites for the scientific investigation of the 9/11 attacks on World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. It separates truth from fiction and documents what is probably the largest conspiracy in human history, and one which has the most serious consequences for humanity.
Because it is so horrific and from many perspectives seems improbable, impossible and even ridiculous, people tend to dismiss 9/11 alternative explanations without serious consideration of any of the evidence or questions raised. See also: 9/11 U.S. Attack Evidence

  Roberts Claims Bush Will Nuclear Bomb Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
December 15, 2006

My belief is that the only way to stop a possible Bush plan of this type is to educate Americans about 'False Flag' usage in the past, and that Bush may use such a technique to fool Americans into supporting a nuclear war on Iran . I really don't see how else he can get away with doing it, and convincing allies and the rest of the world that he did the right thing. Unless pre-warned about this possibility, even the Japanese might go along with a believable 'False Flag' blamed on Iran to justify the US use of nuclear weapons in retaliation.

  Bush's Armageddon Wish
by Paul Craig Roberts

The neocons believe that the use of nukes will convince Arabs and the wider world that there is no recourse to accepting America's will. John Bolton, a notorious neocon warmonger who could not be confirmed as America's ambassador to the UN by even the compliant and corrupt US Senate, got the job as a recess appointment. He is using the platform to push America into war with Iran.

George Monbiot describes "total sensory deprivation" a US technique of torture that often makes prisoners like Jose Padilla lose their minds. Jose Padilla, a US  citizen detained as an "enemy combatant" and suspected of planning to detonate a dirty bomb, was imprisoned for 3 years without any charge being laid against him. He was subjected to "total sensory deprivation”. Now...."his mind is no longer there" Monbiot wrote.
...Remember, with pre-emptive nuclear war millions can be killed in hours. The world, if it continues, will be irreparably damaged for all the time that remains.

  Routine and systematic torture is at the heart of America's "war on terror"
by George Monbiot
December 12, 2006

In the fight against cruelty, barbarism and extremism, America has embraced the very evils it claims to confront.
After thousands of years of practice, you might have imagined that every possible means of inflicting pain had already been devised. But you should never underestimate the human capacity for invention. United States interrogators, we now discover, have found a new way of destroying a human being.

  Hitler's Lesson Ignored Again?
Comment by Larry Ross
December 14, 2006

I repeat this quote from Adolph Hitler because it seems so relevant to the tactics today of the Bush Administration. The reactions of people are much the same. It's as if nothing was learned since the Hitlerian techniques were successfully used on the German people. Why?  They may be fooled again, particularly if Bush and co unleash a 'False Flag' op, followed up with a well-planned campaign of lies, blame, pro-war propaganda and war on the accused, for the phoney alleged "False Flag" errorist attack on the US. 


US-Iran Talks, Propaganda

Comment by Larry Ross
December 11, 2006

...The propaganda pitch also suggests that Bush and his neocons are using the same type of lies to build a case for attacking Iran and that they are creating a situation where they will blame Iran and Syria for not stopping the violence provoked by the US war. With the US said to be planning to use nuclear weapons against Iran , they may use any number of tactics and psywar inventions, such as a 'False Flag' operation to convince the public that this was the right thing to do.

The Bush administration has come under growing pressure to reach out to Iran to try to calm escalating violence in Iraq . A key recommendation of a bipartisan US report on how to tackle Iraq said Washington should engage Iran and Syria directly.

Paul Craig Roberts presents some of the reasons why Bush should be judged insane. He makes a convincing case.
But there are other reasons as described under Psychopathology of Bushism on this site.
(1) Religious delusions, (2) Drunk with power and Hubris, (3) Grandiose notions of his own infallibility, (4) A belief in his God-given right to govern and to decide the fate of the rest of the world, (5) Like the Pope, Bush believes he is now infallible.

"False Flag Operation?" Dr Carmichael quotes Ray McGovern (below) as predicting the US will use a covert terrorist act on the US (otherwise known as 'False Flag' operation) and blame Iran, in order to condition the US population to sanction any response George Bush chooses against Iran.

One US carrier task force is already in position in the Persian Gulf. Two more task forces are moving swiftly to take up their positions in the Iranian theatre....
While Perle stated his hope that the need for military interventions would be minimal, he left the impression that his definition of excessive use of military power might well differ from that of the average American or European citizen. Perle is on the public record advocating pre-emptive strikes against North Korea, Syria, Iran and a list of other countries. Some of his critics accuse Perle of darkly malignant machinations. (Richard N.

  Scholarly Essay on US Fascism Growth Omits Key Factors
Comment by Larry Ross
November 29, 2006

...Hitler's Reichstag fire was a successfully planned 'False Flag' event.  The neoconservative soul of the Bush Administration has shown itself very capable of planning similar 'False Flag' events. Many think they have already demonstrated how they can make history and orchestrate their new deceitful 'truths' to suit, with the phoney  9/11 attack. Their litany of lies to justify their continuing illegal war on Iraq is another good example of their artful Machiavellian deceptions.

  Links to 9/11 Conspiracy
Comment by Larry Ross
November 29, 2006

Here is another piece of the 9/11 puzzle. That Pakistan Intelligence financed the 9/11 hijackers. That the newly appointed head of the CIA Porter Goss, knew this and had close links with Pakistan intelligence. If 9/11 was a Bush Administration 'inside job', Porter Goss must have been privy to, or part, of that operation. No wonder Bush appointed him to head the CIA with overall control of a budget of 40 billion dollars for intelligence operations? For those who have studied 9/11 and concluded it must have been a Bush Administration conspiracy, the attached article by Prof. Chossudovsky makes sense and is an important part of the conspiracy.

  White House Nominee to Head the CIA has Dubious Links to the Terror Network
by Michel Chossudovsky
July 5, 2004

Two weeks before 9/11, Porter Goss, the White House nominee for the CIA Director of Intelligence was being "briefed on the growing threat of al Qaeda" (WP, 5/04/03) by a Pakistani General who "ran a spy agency notoriously close to Osama bin Laden and the Taliban. "
Following George Tenet's resignation as Director of Central Intelligence at the CIA, the Bush administration immediately pointed to Rep. Porter Goss, as its handpicked nominee.
Porter Goss, a Florida Republican and former CIA operative, is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. He also chaired, together with Senator Bob Graham, the Joint Senate House Committee, on the September 11 attacks.

  Permanent U.S. Bases Mean Permanent Occupation
Comment by Larry Ross
November 23, 2006

This article is particularly good because of its analysis of the Washington establishment, the probable result of the Iraq Study Group, and comments about permanent U.S. bases in Iraq, and the amazing abdication of responsibility by the Mass Media of honest coverage of the war.
On the other hand the predictions could be wrong if the Bush Administration implements its plan to make war on Iran, and escalates that into a nuclear war on Iran, leading to a general war on Islamic countries.
The possible use of a 'False Flag' operation by the Bush Administration, to incriminate Iran and justify using nuclear weapons, must also be considered.


Will Papa Bush's Old Pals Prolong the Iraq Occupation?

by Tom Engelhardt

While everyone in Washington is treating Bush Senior's ally Robert Gates' Pentagon arrival and James Baker's Iraq Study Group report as godsends that will end the war in Iraq, it's quite likely that they will deploy more troops and stay there indefinitely.

  Preparations For War On Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
November 12, 2006

....The U.S. Democrats who have just won in Congress and the Senate are unlikely to stop this war as they are deeply involved in approving the Iraq war, and either repeating or not questioning Bush lies to justify it. They are doing the same thing about the new U.S. enemy - Iran . They have also approved Bush's new nuclear doctrines, his patriot laws, his preparations for the Iran war and given him virtually unlimited power. The Democrats have proved themselves to be a weak, lily-livered and wishy-washy opposition party unwilling and unable to speak the truth about the Bush Administration and the illegal wars. There are a few exceptional and honest Democratic politicians who oppose U.S. war policies, but not enough to make much difference.

    Unleashing Armageddon in the Middle East
by Dr. Elias Akleh
November 11, 2006

In mid 1970s the American Power Elite drew a “Grand Plan” to control and to monopolize global oil and nuclear energy resources, for he who controls energy resources determines the fate of nations. The base of this “Grand Plan” is the invasion of energy rich countries to directly control their resources, and to create subservient governments that would exploit their own people as cheap labor to harvest energy for the United States.
The collapse of the Soviet Union had created a window of opportunity for the United States to ensure and to affirm its global superiority through expansion and controlling energy resources without any real opposition. The attacks of 911 were necessary requirements for the Bush administration to wage a “global war against terror” that would serve as a cover up for American hegemony. President Bush borrowed Mussolini's fascist motto of “If you are not with me, you are against me” and turned it into “You are either with us or with the terrorist” to terrorize weaker nations into accepting American expansions.

  U.S. Sets Up Legal Contortions To Justify Nuclear Attack
Comment by Larry Ross
November 5, 2006

The U.S. has gone to considerable lengths to set up a situation in the UN where it can claim UN approval to legally use nuclear weapons against Iran.
Professor Hirsch shows how this was done. Although it may not have been the intention of any state other than Israel to give such approval for any such action, the U.S. has an objective and a plan - and that plan includes making war on Iran . All kinds of dupliciity, chicanery and pressure has been used to achieve this end, so that they can actually argue that the UN resolution and sanctions against Iran gave them approval to use force against Iran - even nuclear weapons.


A Legal US Nuclear Attack Against Iran The real reason for the IAEA Iran resolution

by Jorge Hirsch
November 12, 2005

On September 24 of this year, the United States finally achieved a goal it had persistently pursued over several years. Iran was declared by the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) to be in "non compliance" with its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The resolution passed by the IAEA is remarkably weak. It does not set a date for Iran to be referred to the UN Security Council, and it does not even mention the possibility of sanctions. It even notes that Iran has made "good progress" in correcting its "breaches," all of which date back to before October 2003. The LA Times characterized it as a " gentle slap ." It is instead an enormous thud.

. . . Dissent and criticism of Bush will become non-existent, both because the media will suppress it and because people will be unwilling to express criticism and risk imprisonment, torture and jail.

  Nuclear Doctrines Threaten Humanity
Comment by Larry Ross
November 1, 2006

This is one of the most important papers we have ever re-printed, by a world authority on U.S. nuclear war policies, and U.S. plans to wage nuclear war on Iran . Michel Chossudovsky details the various nuclear war doctrines that are an integral part of Pentagon military options. No longer do the U.S. military consider nuclear weapons 'a weapon of last resort', likely to lead to escalation and an end to humanity.
Today they literally, have learned to 'love the bomb' and have radically changed past perceptions so that nuclear weapons have become just one of a number of military options military commanders may use in various battle situations. They allow the U.S. to suddenly launch a preemptive nuclear strike against a chosen enemy. The enemy may be non-nuclear or nuclear. Also, they claim the right to introduce nuclear weapons use into conventional military conflicts.


Is the Bush Administration Planning a Nuclear Holocaust?

by Michel Chossudovsky
February 22, 2006

Will the US launch "Mini-nukes" against Iran in Retaliation for Tehran's "Non-compliance"?
At no point since the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6th, 1945, has humanity been closer to the unthinkable, a nuclear holocaust which could potentially spread, in terms of radioactive fallout,  over a large part of the Middle East.
All the safeguards of the Cold War era, which categorized the nuclear bomb as "a weapon of last resort" have been scrapped. "Offensive" military actions using nuclear warheads are now described as acts of "self-defense".

U.S. Nuclear Weapons On Iran?
Comment by Larry Ross
October 31, 2006

Although the following article is 6 months old, I felt it should be posted on our web site because it is so thorough and well-researched.
This any many other articles show there is little doubt that key Bush Administration people want to hit Iran, and reject any objections to using nuclear weapons against Iran.
Any attack on Iran would be so much against U.S. present and future interests, the Administration would have to construct an utterly false but very convincing case for such an action. They did just that for their war on Iraq and the Democrats bought it, in spite of its glaring lies. Iraq may be a quagmire, but the ruse succeeded. Their success with the Iraq deception is likely to embolden them to enact a much larger crime against Iran.
White house decisions are made by extremists with fanatical belief systems that allow them to discount national U.S. considerations. Also, one has to calculate what kind of person calculates the killing of thousands of other human beings and risks far wider war, even nuclear war, for no real reason - other than some kind of fanatical beliefs that defy reason?

Mind Games Over Iran

by Jim Lobe
April 11, 2006

Three years after the fall of Baghdad to U.S. forces, Washington is abuzz about new reports that the administration of President George W. Bush is preparing to attack Iran, possibly with nuclear weapons.
In just the past few days, lengthy articles detailing planning for aerial attacks on as many as 400 nuclear and military targets have appeared in The Washington Post , the London Sunday Times , The Forward (the main weekly of the U.S. Jewish community) and The New Yorker.
The New Yorker account, written by legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh, who two years ago was the first to disclose U.S. abuses of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison, was the most spectacular, although it relied heavily on unnamed sources outside the administration.

It will be Pat's birthday on November 6, and the mid-term elections are one day later. That gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military.

How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voice … until we get out. Much has happened since we handed over our voice:


Is War with Iran the October Surprise?

by Captain Eric H. May
October 17, 2006

Polls as Prologue
According to current polls, if the mid-term elections were held today, President George W. Bush and his Republican Party would lose badly . He would then face an opposition Congress in 2007, one bound and determined to reassert its oversight duties. Investigations, an inevitability, could easily lead to his impeachment , and in that event the two-thirds of the United States who don't trust him could ask troubling questions about his presidency, all the way back to the still-murky events of 9/11.

  Creeping Fascism
Comment by Larry Ross
October 19, 2006

James Bovard's article shows how Bush is emerging as America's dictator and how media helps this process by portraying it as perfectly normal. Congress and the Senate are allowing Bush to get away with installing a law that allows him to torture suspects. Also, laws to allow the courts to accept testimony obtained under torture, which is generally considered faulty. Most people will say anything just to stop the torture. The  Bush Administration will get the confessions it wants, to justify the sentence it wants to give it's prisoners. Bush can also declare anyone in the world a suspect and does not have to produce evidence to support that charge. It looks like the apathetic American public will accept this, mainly because the media do not make them aware.
If Bush stages a "False Flag" operation to incriminate Iran and then declares war on Iran, the process will be stepped up as well as the popularity of Bush and the Republicans. Few people are aware or care about this frightening loss as their democracy is legislated out of existence.

  Don't Let Them Manufacture Another War
by Dennis Kucinich
October 18, 2006

Representative Dennis Kucinich knows the neocon playbook used to lead our nation into war. That's why the courageous Congressman is doing everything he possibly can to ensure that the Bush administration fails in its effort to pull the same old tricks in manufacturing a war with Iran. . . .
1) Iran is at least 5 years – but more likely 10 or more years – away from producing weapons-grade nuclear materials
2) Iran poses no imminent threat to the US, Israel, or its neighbors
3) The Bush administration has already selected the military option and is moving to make it operational
4) The consequences of a military confrontation with Iran are global and nightmarish
5) We should be pursuing multilateral negotiations and have missed key opportunities to do so – including not even responding to an Iranian offer to put     recognition of Israel and suspension of its nuclear program on the table.
    Perhaps more than anything else, our refusal to engage Iran frustrates this panel.

  U.S. Nuclear Attack on Iran
Comment by Larry Ross
October 8, 2006

Ex-U.S. Senator Gary   Hart claims Bush will launch "a preemptive war against Iran " this month before the November Congressional elections in the U.S.
The present predictions are that the Democrats would win enough seats to take control of the House, thus upsetting the Republican majority and perhaps preventing the more extreme war plans of the Bush Administration. The Bush neoconservative regime is determined to prevent that and reverse public opinion so that the Republicans will retain control. 
Will the Bush Administration rely only on lies and false propaganda, as Gary Hart's article implies, to justify preemptive war against Iran?
Or will Bush stage a 'False Flag' so-called 'terrorist attack' on the U.S. and blame Iran , in order to justify the use of nuclear weapons?

Here is an article which gives more in-depth information about one of the themes in my NZ Tour talk - the influence of religious beliefs on Bush's foreign policy decisions. Also, "The October Surprise " may include a "False Flag" operation to gain public support for war with Iran and give a boost to Bush's and Republican Party popularity, for the Nov U.S.  elections, as detailed in my talk. It's very much like Adolph Hitler having the Reichstag burned down 3 days before the 1933 German elections, in order to get popular approval and Hindenberg's agreement to sign papers doing away with civil rights and allowing the installation of Hitler's dictatorship. At the moment, NZ might follow the U.S. lead, due to lack of public education about this possibility.

by Gary Hart, HuffingtonPost

It should come as no surprise if the Bush Administration undertakes a preemptive war against Iran sometime before the November election.
Were these more normal times, this would be a stunning possibility, quickly dismissed by thoughtful people as dangerous, unprovoked, and out of keeping with our national character. But we do not live in normal times.
And we do not have a government much concerned with our national character. If anything, our current Administration is out to remake our national character into something it has never been.

This is a well-documented article by Dick Fojut which exposes some of the details of what may be the biggest fraud in history.
It is one of a growing number that examine the proposition that the Bush Administration staged a "False Flag" operation to create a "Pearl Harbour" in the U.S. and then blamed what it called  "Islamic terrorists" for this crime. After the alleged 9/11 crime, 7 of the 19 so-called "terrorists" were found alive and well by British newspapers and the BBC in 2001. Most U.S. and allied media neither reported nor followed up on this story.



September 15, 2006

... ALMOST EVERYONE in Congress naively swallowed our government's 9/11 ("False Flag") fiction by blaming "19 MUSLIM HIJACKERS", evidently ignorant of the fact that SEVEN of the FBI-identified 19 were found alive and well by British newspapers later in Sept. 2001! At least 7 of the FBI-accused "dead" hijackers were never on the 4 planes!
