If GWB was such a great guy, why the Americans voted him to be the worst president? Why he got all that "shoe treatement" inside the same White House?
He is responsible for the economic and military voes of US and it would take at least 50 years for US to recover from all the harms he did to USA.
As for Al Qaeda being responsible for 9/11, people fail to realize that 9/11 consisted of two parts,... one part was hitting planes with the buildings, and the second part was the spectacular collapse of those towers and WTC-7.
Even of Al Qaeda was responsible for the first part, how could they control the second part?
And the second part is the real truth about 9/11, which most of US people are afraid to investigate and ask questions about it.
Truths always support each other and do not contradict each other.
This is basic definition of truth.
The towers could not have fallen in that pattern, unless someone did something with those massive columns.
What and how and why are questions that every one should ask.
I mean every one who is not blind with fake patriotism and fake nationalism.
CIA Warned Of U.S. Attack In '95
Said Islamic Extremists Could Strike Targets In NYC, Washington
April 16, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/2huu2
Six years before the Sept. 11 attacks, the CIA warned in a classified report that Islamic extremists likely would strike on U.S. soil at landmarks in Washington or New York, or through the airline industry, according to intelligence officials.

Though hauntingly prescient, the CIA's 1995 National Intelligence Estimate did not yet name Osama bin Laden as a terrorist threat.

But within months the intelligence agency developed enough concern about the wealthy, Saudi-born militant to create a specific unit to track him and his followers, the officials told The Associated Press.

And in 1997, the CIA updated its intelligence estimate to ensure bin Laden appeared on its very first page as an emerging threat, cautioning that his growing movement might translate into attacks on U.S. soil, the officials said, divulging new details about the CIA's 1990s response to the terrorist threat.

The officials took the rare step Thursday of disclosing information in the closely held National Intelligence Estimates and other secret briefings to counter criticisms in a staff report released this week by the independent commission examining pre-Sept. 11 intelligence failures.

U.S. warned in 1995 of plot to hijack planes, attack buildings
September 18, 2001 http://tinyurl.com/l2kuo7w
MANILA, Philippines (CNN)-- The FBI was warned six years ago of a terrorist plot to hijack commercial planes and slam them into the Pentagon, the CIA headquarters and other buildings, Philippine investigators told CNN.
Philippine authorities learned of the plot after a small fire in a Manila apartment, which turned out to be the hideout of Ramzi Yousef, who was later convicted for his role in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Yousef escaped at the time, but agents caught his right-hand man, Abdul Hakim Murad, who told them a chilling tale.
"Murad narrated to us about a plan by the Ramzi cell in the continental U.S. to hijack a commercial plane and ram it into the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, and also the Pentagon," said Rodolfo Mendoza, a Philippine intelligence investigator.
Philippine investigators also found evidence targeting commercial towers in San Francisco, Chicago and New York City.
They said they passed that information on to the FBI in 1995, but it's not clear what was done with it./ http://archives.cnn.com/2001/US/09/18/inv.hij...

Lawmaker??? How about Obumble getting slapped down for trying to be ABOVE the law???
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has ordered the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to resume the license application process for the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste facility.
The ruling of a divided three-judge panel presents a setback for the Obama administration and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) both of whom worked aggressively to kill the facility.
The Department of Energy submitted its licensing application for Yucca Mountain to the commission in 2008. In January 2010, PRESIDENT OBUMBLE directed then U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu to scuttle plans for the Yucca facility.
Soon thereafter, states and counties stuck storing the waste, as well as and individuals affected by the temporary storage facilities, filed multiple lawsuits to try and reignite the licensing process. Plaintiffs argued that the commission was bound by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act to consider the Yucca Mountain application. Among the objections of the commission was the lack of full funding, which it blamed on Congress.(The NRC has $11.1 million in its coffers specifically for the licensing process.)
The court had previously threatened the use of a writ of mandamus unless the commission restored the application process or Congress enacted a law to terminate the process. The lack of inactivity from both Congress and the commission pushed the hand of the court.
Writing for the majority, Judge Brett Kavanaugh admonished the commission for "flouting the law."
He was joined by Judge A. Raymond Randolph, while Judge Merrick Garland dissented.
"The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has declined to continue the statutorily mandated Yucca Mountain licensing process," Kavanaugh wrote. "Several justifications have been suggested in support of the Commission’s actions in this case. None is persuasive."
K&L Gates partners Barry Hartman and Tim Peckinpaugh represent three plaintiffs from Washington state who lived near the temporary sites.
"This case was clearly a policy dispute, and the commission walked away from the law because it was told to do so," Harman said in an interview. "If you don't like it, change the law."
Aside from the implications regarding licensing, Kavanaugh wrote that there are serious implications in the use of executive power.
Kavanaugh wrote: "It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive and independent agencies to disregard federal law in the manner asserted in this case by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Our decision today rests on the constitutional authority of Congress, and the respect that the Executive and the Judiciary properly owe to Congress in the circumstances here."
In response to the ruling, Reid today told reporters at an energy summit press conference in Las Vegas that since there is no money appropriated the Yucca Mountain facitily would not proceed, according to a transcript provided by Reid's office.
"There is no money, we’ve cut funding for many years now and there is none in the pipeline, so this is just a bump in the road, without being disrespectful to the Court it means nothing," Reid said.
Lets say it again francis...It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive agencies to disregard federal law...imagine that?
Any president is just a servant of any tiny but mighty Group of billionairs. They control everything, that is they rule the US and above.

My point is simply that those 'In The Know' had an idea that planes could be used as weapons.

Goes all the way back to 1998, 1995, and even as far back as February 26, 1993 WTC bombing.

MUQ is right about the phony baloney 9/11 Commission Report.

MUQ is also very WRONG about an inside job and that the USA and Israel planned it.

I think it is pretty obvious by now that 9/11 was nothing but an inside job, it was to push new geostrategic goals nothing else, otherwise they would have had Mr. bin Laden years ago. But hey why arrest someone that only praises the attack and didn’t do it. The 9/11 made the fear factor needed, to introduce new draconian laws and prepare the population of the United States of America for the New World Order that Bush senior talked about back in the 1990s.
To prepare US for this change 9/11 was needed.
The US leadership has never backed away when it comes to killing a few less needed individuals in their mind to reach their goals, numerous incidences can be traced to the CIA and the FBI and their Homeland Security along with all the other agencies working in the shadows. This issue does not suffer from lack of evidence, on the contrary it got tons of it but as those in power were all bought up to run this or rather to stupid and busy kissing up to those knowing what happened this is called a Conspiracy Theory.
Everyone should read the The Georgia Guide stones found in Elbert County, Georgia, USA. I think those stones speaks for themselves and if no one believes in them, try to interview Alex Jones American talk radio host and filmmaker, or actor Charlie Sheen they both got the right questions, the right information the insight what lead and is behind the 9/11 thanks to years of studding our power elites and ALL OFFICIAL documents and OFFICIAL video materials.
To keep it short, 9/11 is more then a Conspiracy Theory it is facts and they are so visual that people that can’t see it, is either blind, or deaf cause this would been the Pulitzer Price 8 years ago but as every media outlet is owned by people behind it we will never know the truth unless people start ask the right questions, unless people step up and challenge them behind it.

As for the towers, you only have to follow the simple logic:
The firemen knew that WTC7 was going to collapse due to the damage from the collapse of the towers. There is no evidence of "all of the explosions" required for demolition. WTC7 went kaput.
If one steel and concrete building from damage and fire can collapse under it own weight then another can do likewise. WTC7 fell under it's own weight and one of the towers fell under it's own weight from fire and damage. The second tower's collapse proves the first tower's collapse because it happened on the same day,under similar conditions. No scale model testing necessary.
You should be a Hollywood movie director. The people that voted for Obama would eat the baloney you would make.
It shows Americans are dumb fools when it comes to electing their Presidents.

First they elected and reelected GWB the Great, the crook of the first water.

Then they elected and then re-elected Obama..if he was so stupid why they re0-elected him?

It shows that entire electoral system of USA is defective and can be manipulated by a few rich people, the majority of people are just dummy and they sway from side to side.

And when this happens in USA, how could that type of democracy works in other poor countries?

Why can't US people choose their Presidents with more care?

I give you the answer.

Because they have no REAL CHOICE!!

They MUST select specie A or Specie B and there is no difference between these Species!!

BOTH of them are controlled by the SAME Jewish and Zionist lobby.

Here is a new series confirming our previous findings, Mr. AB s.

Why WTC Towers Collapsed?… Thermite Materials found in WTC Dust Part-0

Introduction:(By MUQ)

Sudden collapse of Both WTC Towers (and a Third one too) as seen on TV screens created shock waves world wide. Most people were stunned; they could not believe their eyes. It was an unprecedented.

It looked so real and so logical, two fully loaded commercial jets hit a super high structure, buildings are engulfed in fire and after 90 minutes or so they collapse upon themselves. It seemed very logical, the fire weakened the steel pillars and the weight of top 20 or 30 floors acted like Ram to crush the bottom floors. It happened right in front of our eyes, how could there be any thing hidden?

Then the tirade against Al Qaeda started forthright…. There were some Arabs sitting in all those jets… They MUST have hijacked the planes and they MUST have flown it to their’s and other’s destruction… This was an unprecedented crime and the criminals must be punished…

Whole world was unanimous in sympathy to USA and victims of 9/11 and every one promised to help bring the criminals to justice…. USA started war preparations against Afghanistan and Al Qaeda and Taliban and very few people paid any attention to the reason of collapse of those towers.

But a crime is a crime and irrespective of its nature and seriousness, it has to be analyzed dispassionately and without any bias. The reasons, the motives, modus operandi, every thing has to be analyzed. It should be seen that every evidence supports each other and there are very few unanswered questions.

It seems strange, but it is true that 9/11 investigations were not carried out with the seriousness and with diligence that they required.

We heard in Newspapers that Fire is still burning in Ground Zero even after 21 days of the tragedy… why a simple fire should burn for so many days?

Sudden collapse of Three WTC towers was another riddle… No high rise building had ever collapsed due to fire or hit by a jet airlines. A Jet may seem very big and very powerful, but compared to the strength of multiple steel columns it is not a major threat. Then the impact would only affect the columns near the walls, what about rest of columns? The fire of Jet fuel cannot attain the temperature to melt or soften steel columns. WTC offices were used for normal commercial activities, they were not used for storing explosives or detonators or dangerous chemicals.

All these points raised curiosities in the mind of some people. They thought that US will conduct a very thorough investigation to answer all questions and would analyze all possibilities and probabilities.

But it was seen that US was not very serious in conducting any real investigations. The job was given to federal agencies…who took their own time and submitted their report in official format confirming “official Version” that impact of Jets and ensuring fire resulted in the collapse of all three WTC towers.

Immediately after official investigations were over, the debris of WTC were sent to be recycled, so the only evidence of the crime was destroyed.

We have seen so many cars and vehicles involved in accidents and trials held up in police stations as “evidences” for many months and many years.

Why in the case of WTC, the Biggest Crime in History, when the Judicial Trail had not even started; why evidence was being destroyed. Does it not look strange?

Any way a movement to know the truth about 9/11 incident started in USA and elsewhere and people are trying their own to know the real truth of what really happened on that fateful day. Every group of people are trying to study the collapse from their own specialized field of activities. Strange thing about truth is that they always support and never contradict each other. Any assumptions or hypothesis on the other way, might support or might contradict each other. It is seen that “official version” is either silent or contradicts these investigations.

Here I present the report of one such enquiry, which was conducted from the Samples of dust collected from fallen WTC towers. The report is very thorough and is presented in scientific manner. I cannot reproduce many films and photographs on this thread. I have given the address for people who want to read the full report.

Please note that none of the authors are Muslims, or Al Qaeda members or Taliban Sympathizers. They are not funded by any Muslim organization. Their aim is to know the truth behind the incident.

If this report is true, then why official US agencies could not detect Thermites in the Millions of Tons of WTC debris they had seen and analyzed?

Were they blind or were working on a “pre-supposed hypothesis”?

Some one might say why 9/11 is posted on an evolution thread…. My answer is that I did not start it… but once it has started, let people know the truth.

The Jewish Media: The Lie That Won't Die
October 1996 / http://tinyurl.com/2x3n4p
When Marlon Brando declared on Larry King Live (4/5/96) that "Hollywood is owned by Jews," he only said what quite a few Americans believe. Since they don't know who owns the media, millions think that it's "the Jews."
It is an old canard. Having been codified in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (forged by Czarist cops in 1905), the lie was sold here by Henry Ford through the 1920s.("The Twelfth Protocol," proclaimed his Dearborn Independent, "contains the entire plan of Control of the Press, reaching from the present time into the future when the Jewish World Government shall be established.")

Did Ashcroft brush off terror warnings?
NBC exclusive: 9/11 commission interviews FBI officials who contradict Ashcroft testimony / June. 22, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/5avy3
WASHINGTON - The 9/11 commission is busy writing its final report, but is still investigating critical facts, including the conduct of U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. NBC News has learned that the commission has interviewed two FBI officials who contradict sworn testimony by Ashcroft, about whether he brushed off terrorism warnings in the summer of 2001.
In the critical months before Sept. 11, did Ashcroft dismiss threats of an al-Qaida attack in this country?
Yet, Pickard testified to the 9/11 commission that when he tried to brief Ashcroft just a week later, on July 12, about the terror threat inside the United States, he got the brush-off.
"Mr. Ashcroft told you that he did not want to hear about this anymore," Democratic commission member Richard Ben-Veniste asked on April 13. "Is that correct?"
"That is correct," Pickard replied.
However, another senior FBI official tells NBC News he vividly recalls Pickard returning from the meeting that day furious that Ashcroft had cut short the terrorism briefing. This official, now retired, has talked to the 9/11 commission.
NBC News has learned that commission investigators also tracked down another FBI witness at the meeting that day, Ruben Garcia, head of the Criminal Division at that time. Several sources familiar with the investigation say Garcia confirmed to the commission that Ashcroft did indeed dismiss Pickard's warnings about al-Qaida.
