Today, as the world pauses to remember the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on the United States, it is also important to remember the inexplicable things that happened – and didn’t happen – that tragic day. After all, 9/11 is responsible for diminishing hard-fought US civil rights, as well as triggering wars around the world. Without wandering into the deep grass of conspiracy theory, here are 11 well documented mysteries of 9/11 that warrant a real investigation into the two hours that changed the course of world history.

The article below was written for the Journal of 9/11 Studies for the eleventh anniversary of September 11, 2001, the day that terminated accountable government and American liberty. It is posted here with the agreement of the editors.
In order to understand the improbability of the government’s explanation of 9/11, it is not necessary to know anything about what force or forces brought down the three World Trade Center buildings, what hit the Pentagon or caused the explosion, the flying skills or lack thereof of the alleged hijackers, whether the airliner crashed in Pennsylvania or was shot down, whether cell phone calls made at the altitudes could be received, or any other debated aspect of the controversy.
You only have to know two things.
Ace Baker provides the best and most thorough analysis proving that real planes did not hit the WTC. Yes, it's very difficult to believe that the various videos and photos showing planes hitting the WTC on 9/11 were all digitally manipulated, and that the various lie-witnesses lied about seeing planes, and that the mainstream media video feed was compromised, but the facts presented in this video leave no doubt that the videos showing planes crashing into the WTC are digital deceptions.
Several attempts to debunk Ace Baker's analysis have failed including the most shameful attempt by Mr. Wright on the Hardfire interview with Ron Wieck. This Ace Baker video dismantles the attempting debunking by Mr. Wright, which some people have used to falsely claim that Ace Baker's evidence is wrong. As the evidence in this video proves, it is Mr Wright that is wrong and his lies and misrepresentations are fully exposed. Watch this video, and you be the judge.

It was the tail-end of a bleak November 2001: a pall of shocked numbness hung over the country, and a rising war hysteria had nearly everyone cowed. Americans were just beginning to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and focus on what had happened, and how to react. It was very early on the morning of the 23rd when, scanning the headlines, I came across a Washington Post story by John Mintz: “60 Israelis Detained on Tourist Visas Since Sept. 11.” Odd, I thought, why go after the Israelis, probably the least likely suspects?

I have been following this event for the past 10 years, but until today (September 14, 2011) I had never seen this footage (in the video on right) which was taken by a helicopter flying over the Pentagon at the time of the impact on 9/11/2001.
Watch the video and beginning at 4:56 is shown the video taken from the helicopter. The best images begin at 5:09. Admitedly, it is from a distance and a little difficult to say exactly what it was that hit the Pentagon, but clearly it was not a Boeing 757. It sure looks like a missle to me!

There is one thing that defines everyone over the course of these early years of this new century. That thing is the 9/11 attack. Everyone in government and every field of endeavor the world over is defined by their position on this event. It is not necessary to know the truth. It is only necessary to know the extent of the lies in order to define any leader in any position anywhere in the world. By what they have said and by what they have not said, one can accurately judge who is an enemy of the people's of the world. One can accurately determine who is a tool of the psychopaths or one of them.

On Thursday, September 8, 2011, the Toronto Hearings will mark the tenth anniversary of the state engineered 9/11 attacks by bringing together an all-star line up of 9/11 truth-tellers, citizen researchers, scholars, scientists, and disinterested skeptics to go over the evidence that disproves the official story of how and why 9/11 happened.
The event will run for four days from September 8 to September 11 at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto, and it is sponsored by The International Center for 9/11 Studies, founded by American attorney James Gourley. The Center was instrumental in disclosing valuable videotapes of the 9/11 events to the public that contradicted official government reports about the collapse of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7.

9/11 and Al Qaeda: The price of victory ... Is Al Qaeda finished? As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 nears, it would certainly be welcome news that the organization that carried out those attacks has been defeated. On Sunday, The Times reported that Al Qaeda's reputed second in command, Atiyah Abdul Rahman, had been killed in Pakistan, probably in a strike by a U.S. drone: A few weeks after [Osama] bin Laden was killed in Pakistan during a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs, some analysts suggested that Rahman, a Libyan, had emerged as Al Qaeda's leader. That didn't turn out to be the case – the leadership spot went to Egyptian Ayman Zawahiri – but it underscored how central a role Rahman has played. And what's the big picture? As the story says: Rahman's death is likely to lend credence to a view in some U.S. policymaking circles that Al Qaeda's defeat is within reach. – LA Times

Free-Market Analysis: This blog opinion from the "Times Opinion Staff" offers nothing much new in this retrospective on 9/11. As the tale of 9/11 continues to "age out" such articles shall become more common. They partake of what was once called the "banality of evil" – as their starting point is the deliberate falsehood of the 9/11 myth itself.
This banality of evil is intensely dangerous. Inevitably, the lack of truth gives rise to subtle oppression, and then eventually to obvious genocide. Those leaders that have taken their countries down such a road cannot sleep well at night. They think of nothing but murder and retribution.

On September 11, 2001 the definition of National Security changed for most U.S. citizens. For an entire postwar generation, “National Security” meant protection from nuclear attack. On that day, Americans redefined that threat. On September 11, 2001 three hijacked airliners hit three separate buildings with such precision and skill that many observers believe those flights were controlled by something other than the poorly trained hijackers in the cockpits.
This report contends that not only were the buildings targets, but that specific offices within each building were the designated targets. These offices unknowingly held information which if exposed, subsequently would expose a national security secret of unimaginable magnitude. Protecting that secret was the motivation for the September 11th attacks. This report is about that national security secret: its origins and impact. The intent of the report is to provide a context for understanding the events of September 11th rather than to define exactly what happened that day.
Initially, it is difficult to see a pattern to the destruction of September 11th other than the total destruction of the World Trade Center, a segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss of 2,993 lives. However, if the perceived objective of the attack is re-defined from its commonly suggested ‘symbolic’ designation as either ‘a terrorist attack’ or a ‘new Pearl Harbor,’ and one begins by looking at it as purely a crime with specific objectives (as opposed to a political action), there is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction. This article provides research into the early claims by Dick Eastman, Tom Flocco, V.K. Durham and Karl Schwarz that the September 11th attacks were meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th.1

While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.
A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.
In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.
When piles of carefully researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”
In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.
