International Inquiry into 9-11, Phase One, San Francisco, March 26-28th 2004
"And these blast points, too accurate for Sandpeople. Only Imperial stormtroopers are so precise."
Bülow: "This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry."
Let me provide a couple quotes from an interview by Stephan Lebert / Norbert Thomma with Andreas Von Bülow, which appeared in the German newspaper Tagesspiegel, on Jan. 13, 2002
Von Bülow: ...like assailants who, in their preparations, leave tracks behind them like a herd of stampeding elephants? They made payments with credit cards with their own names; they reported to their flight instructors with their own names. They left behind rented cars with flight manuals in Arabic for jumbo jets. They took with them, on their suicide trip, wills and farewell letters, which fall into the hands of the FBI, because they were stored in the wrong place and wrongly addressed. Clues were left behind like in a child's game of hide-and-seek, which were to be followed! There is also the theory of one British flight engineer: According to this, the steering of the planes was perhaps taken out of the pilots' hands, from outside. The Americans had developed a method in the 1970s, whereby they could rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the computer piloting [automatic pilot system]. This theory says, this technique was abused in this case. That's a theory... [The events of Sept. 11] --fit perfectly in the concept of the armaments industry, the intelligence agencies, the whole military-industrial-academic complex. This is in fact conspicuous. The huge raw materials reserves of the former Soviet Union are now at their disposal, also the pipeline routes and--I can state: the planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry.
[Von Bülow former State Secretary (a high position one level below that) at the Ministery Of Defense from 1976-1980 and Minister for Research And Technology from 1980-1982. He was also member of the Bundestag (the German parlament) from 1969-1994 and member of the Bundestag's control commission for the German secret services for some time. The informations above were taken from his book "Im Namen des Staates" (ISBN3-492-23050-4; don't know if there's an English translation of it). The title means "In the name of the State" and the book describes illegal activities of several secret services, including the CIA, on more than 600 pages]

Although this comes from an overseas source, it illustrates the concept well.
GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) USE FOR ALL-WEATHER LANDINGS
The aviation industry is investigating the use of differential GPS concepts for precision landings in bad weather to improve the safety and reliability of air travel. The GPS is a constellation of 24 satellites used to determine aircraft position anywhere on or near the Earth. When a ground-based GPS receiver is used to provide a 'differential' correction signal, an aircraft's position can be determined within a foot or two. Boeing partnered with NASA to examine GPS Landing System concepts and evaluate their accuracy, integrity, and continuity of function in automatic landings of airplanes. The team tested several prototype GPS Landing System concepts using NASA 557 during 226 automatic approaches and landings. The data obtained is being used to validate GPS Landing System simulations and to define system certification requirements. (NASA Boeing 757)
The 757-200 flight deck, designed for two-crew member operation, pioneered the use of digital electronics and advanced displays. Those offer increased reliability and advanced features compared to older electro-mechanical instruments. A fully integrated flight management computer system (FMCS) provides for automatic guidance and control of the 757-200 from immediately after takeoff to final approach and landing. Linking together digital processors controlling navigation, guidance and engine thrust, the flight management system assures that the aircraft flies the most efficient route and flight profile for reduced fuel consumption, flight time and crew workload. The precision of global positioning satellite (GPS) system navigation, automated air traffic control functions, and advanced guidance and communications features are now available as part of the new Future Air Navigation System (FANS) flight management computer. The captain and the first officer each have a pair of electronic displays for primary flight instrumentation. The electronic attitude director indicator displays airplane attitude and autopilot guidance cues. The electronic horizontal situation indicator displays a video map of navigation aids, airports, and the planned airplane route and can display a weather-radar image over these ground features. The engine indicating and crew alerting system, often called EICAS, monitors and displays engine performance and airplane system status before takeoff. It also provides caution and warning alerts to the flight crew if necessary. EICAS monitoring also aids ground crews by providing maintenance information. The 757-200 is available with a wind shear detection system that alerts flight crews and provides flight-path guidance to cope with it. Wind shear, caused by a violent down-burst of air that changes speed and direction as it strikes the ground, can interfere with a normal takeoff and landing. Flight decks of the 757 and 767 are nearly identical and both aircraft have a common type-rating. Pilots qualified to fly one of the aircraft also can fly the other with only minimal additional familiarization. Built-in test equipment helps ground crews troubleshoot avionics and airplane systems quickly for easier maintenance than on earlier aircraft. Structural maintenance needs are reduced, owing to new methods of corrosion protection including application of special sealants and enameling of major portions of the fuselage. (Boeing 757-200 Flight Deck)
If the pilot is not in direct control and another mechanism is controlling (not just receiving passive signals or sensing) the craft, especially from GPS, it is effectively 'remotely' controlled. The link between ground crews, GPS and aircraft have been established. It's not a cruise control and it's not a radio controlled toy car. We're talking FULL avionics AND navigation from take-off to touch down controlled and guided by a known and documented satellite link. "A fully integrated flight management computer system (FMCS) provides for automatic guidance and control of the 757-200 from immediately after takeoff to final approach and landing. Linking together digital processors controlling navigation, guidance and engine thrust, the flight management system assures that the aircraft flies the most efficient route and flight profile for reduced fuel consumption, flight time and crew workload. The precision of global positioning satellite (GPS) system navigation, automated air traffic control functions, and advanced guidance and communications features are now available as part of the new Future Air Navigation System (FANS) flight management computer." This technology could effectively PREVENT the hijack of aircraft. Any deviation from the course would trigger the system and someone would know about it. We're working to verify if American Airlines does have this technology installed in any of its fleet. Suppose they do have this technology installed... Why not key in a coordinate or code to have a hijacked aircraft automatically land at a predesignated, properly prepared airfield prepped for such eventualities. I can only assume that our "planners" do indeed think in terms of hostile contingencies and have this scenario worked out. This all begs the questions: why wasn't this critical technology used, or was it abused?
System Planning Corporation offers the Command Transmitter System (CTS) which provides "remote control and flight termination functions through a fully-redundant sef-contained solid-state system." It is interesting to note that Dov Zakheim, a dual Israeli-American citizen, was not only the VP of System Planning Corporation, but also is currently the Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer for the Department of Defense, sworn in on 4 May 2001.

Boeing Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (X-45A UCAV)
A new era in aviation was initiated on May 22, 2002, as the X-45A Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV) technology demonstrator made its first flight at Edwards AFB, Calif. During the 14-minute flight, which was termed a complete success, the X-45A reached a speed of 195 knots and an altitude of 7,500 feet. Flight characteristics and basic aspects of aircraft operations, particularly the command and control link between the aircraft and the mission-control station, were successfully demonstrated. This historic step marks the beginning of flight testing of the first unmanned system designed from inception for combat. Boeing Phantom Works
From National Security Advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice to the President of the United States George W. Bush, a lie was maintained in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001 - Nobody in our government could have envisioned using aircraft as weapons to fly into buildings. I wonder if someone's resignation is in order...

Proof: The Pentagon Anticipated and Prepared For Aircraft Event
Washington, D.C.,Nov. 3, 2000 - The fire and smoke from the downed passenger aircraft billows from the Pentagon courtyard. Defense Protective Services Police seal the crash sight. Army medics, nurses and doctors scramble to organize aid. An Arlington Fire Department chief dispatches his equipment to the affected areas. Don Abbott, of Command Emergency Response Training, walks over to the Pentagon and extinguishes the flames. The Pentagon was a model and the "plane crash" was a simulated one. The Pentagon Mass Casualty Exercise, as the crash was called, was just one of several scenarios that emergency response teams were exposed to Oct. 24-26 in the Office of the Secretaries of Defense conference room. On Oct. 24, there was a mock terrorist incident at the Pentagon Metro stop and a construction accident to name just some of the scenarios that were practiced to better prepare local agencies for real incidents.

http://wbz4.com/news/StoryFolder/story_704640386_html Agency Planned Exercise On Sept. 11 Built Around A Plane Crashing Into A Building Aug 21, 2002 10:00 pm US/Eastern (AP)-(Washington)-In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, one U.S. intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant aircraft crashed into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism -- it was to be a simulated accident. Officials at the Chantilly, Va.-based National Reconnaissance Office had scheduled an exercise that morning in which a small corporate jet crashed into one of the four towers at the agency's headquarters building after experiencing a mechanical failure. The agency is about four miles from the runways of Washington Dulles International Airport. Agency chiefs came up with the scenario to test employees' ability to respond to a disaster, said spokesman Art Haubold. To simulate the damage from the plane, some stairwells and exits were to be closed off, forcing employees to find other ways to evacuate the building. "It was just an incredible coincidence that this happened to involve an aircraft crashing into our facility," Haubold said. "As soon as the real world events began, we canceled the exercise." Terrorism was to play no role in the exercise, which had been planned for several months, he said. Adding to the coincidence, American Airlines Flight 77 -- the Boeing 767 that was hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon -- took off from Dulles at 8:10 a.m. on Sept. 11, 50 minutes before the exercise was to begin. It struck the Pentagon around 9:40 a.m., killing 64 aboard the plane and 125 on the ground. The National Reconnaissance Office operates many of the nation's spy satellites. It draws its personnel from the military and the CIA. After the Sept. 11 attacks, most of the 3,000 people who work at agency headquarters were sent home, save for some essential personnel, Haubold said. An announcement for an upcoming homeland security conference in Chicago first noted the exercise. In a promotion for speaker John Fulton, a CIA officer assigned as chief of NRO's strategic gaming division, the announcement says, "On the morning of September 11th 2001, Mr. Fulton and his team ... were running a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building. Little did they know that the scenario would come true in a dramatic way that day." The conference is being run by the National Law Enforcement and Security Institute.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW...
One thing that must be understood is that the powers that be do indeed plan on staging real events for terror or political influence, to further a hidden agenda. This has been shown beyond a reasonable doubt by the release of documents pertaining to Operation Northwoods. This kind of thinking has been going on for a while... since 1962 as demonstrated by the Northwoods document.
This is much more than hot, anti-Communist rhetoric during the sixties. This is a prime example, a historical precedent for the intentional staging of terror events for political motivation. It is a plan to use state resources to covertly conduct violent acts against the population to further a war agenda. This comes from the Joint Chiefs. As far as we're concerned this is about as close to a 'smoking-gun,' for the legitimacy of much conspiracy related research, as we've seen in a long while.
Here is the ABC news article
I think you need to read the Northwoods material more carefully and remember its not going to state "kill americans" outright. Please be reasonable... What's going to justify military intervention other than the loss of friendly life and property?
"... which place the United States in the position of suffering justifiable grievance." p.5.pdf
"... should be developed to focus all efforts on a specific ultimate objective which would provide adequate justification for us military intervention. Such a plan would enable a logical build-up of incidents to be combined with other seemingly unrelated events to camouflage the ultimate objective and create the necessary impression on Cuban rashness and irresponsibility on a large scale, directed at other countries as well as the United States.
"...The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere." p.8.pdf [just replace Cuba with Militant-Islam]
"...the ultimate objective is overt military intervention, it is recommended that primary responsibility for developing military and para-military aspects of the plan for both overt and covert military operations be assigned the Joint Chiefs of Staff." p.9.pdf
"The courses of action which follow are a preliminary submission suitable only for planning purposes. ...they are intended to provide a point of departure for the development of a single, integrated, time-phased plan. Such a plan would permit the evaluation of individual projects within the context of cumulative, correlated actions designed to lead inexorably to the objective of adequate justification for US military intervention..." p.10.pdf
Pages 11 and 12 specifically call for riots, mortar shelling of friendly bases, sabotaging and sinking of ships. Section 3 a. "We could blow up a US ship" Section 3 b. "we could blow up a drone" Section 4 "We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington."
Slightly out of context, but I know you're smart enough to read between the lines and follow the examples on this one. Who better to play deception than a known master?
THIS PRESIDENT THINKS OUR IGNORANCE IS BLISS
The United States Government's top lawyer has said that officials have the right to lie to American citizens, telling the US Supreme Court that misleading statements are sometimes needed to protect foreign policy interests. "It's easy to imagine an infinite number of situations where the government might legitimately give out false information," the Solicitor-General, Theodore Olson, told the court on Monday. "It's an unfortunate reality that the issuance of incomplete information and even misinformation by government may sometimes be perceived as necessary to protect vital interests." But Jennifer Harbury, an American widow who was misled for years by American officials concerning the whereabouts and condition of her husband, a Guatemalan rebel leader, disagreed. She told the court that US officials should be held liable if they lie... Ms Harbury, a lawyer, has alleged that the US officials lied to her to conceal the involvement of a Central Intelligence Agency informant in the torture and murder of her husband. She argued that she should have the right to sue the officials responsible for the alleged cover-up... The US officials involved say they never intentionally lied to Ms Harbury. Instead, they withheld certain information or simply refused to search for information in order to protect American operations in Guatemala... Although the case centres on events that unfolded 10 years ago, the court's ruling could have a substantial impact on the war on terrorism. The justices must decide how much information US officials - who are entrusted with foreign policy secrets - must divulge to American citizens. Since the September 11 attacks, the Bush Administration has made several moves to clamp down on the flow of information. For example, last November the Attorney-General, John Ashcroft, ordered closer reviews of which documents federal agencies release under the Freedom of Information Act. (yahoo) (smh)
