7bn dollars, a new profitable RE business, and oil reserves in Middle East, are worth 3.000 lives

In the 10th anniversary of the WTC and Pentagon attacks, considering the multiple sides of such complex catastrophe, I’ll focus in few aspects, basically different from what we have read or will still read in the media. I wouldn’t really want to address the topic of “Conspiracy theory vs the official version”, more than the sorrow and mourning for the victims. However, it’s inevitable to go through the first one, to position oneself towards the latter.

What I would like is to arrive at least to one simple and definite conclusion from all this flood of overwhelming information. We need to be analytic at some point, but also we should be able to feel some relief by now, ten years after, by acquiring some certainty, at least on one single tiny thing.

I won’t sum up in this post, the immense amount of investigation material that has been produced in the past years. If we are not convinced of the official version, I’ll briefly list below the main topics anyone of us can examine in many sites and pages in the Internet:

– The flights, the hijackers, the planes being seized, the collisions.

– The scientific and professional analysis and statements and reports, on how the towers came down.

– The low profitability of WTC complex, already known for some time, by september 2001.

– The burst of the Dotcom bubble and effects on U.S.A. economy.

– Some “suspicious” facts related to 9/11, like removal of explosive detection dogs, from WTC the previous week, a power shut-down the previous week-end, etc.

– The time of the attacks (early morning), like trying to reduce victims as much as possible, while a terrorist attack could have been planned to cause as many casualties as possible.

– The incapability of the Government and the 9/11 Comission to come up with a satisfactory explanation to the events.

– The economic and Real Estate factor, affecting WTC by 2000, which were making them unfeasible to maintain, and impossible to demolish (due to the asbestos contained in the structure).

Since it’s not an issue of believing, but mostly of having undeniable proofs, any of us still consider all this data not being conclusive enough. So, let me put the facts the way I see it, now, ten year later, instead of holding on to facts, and see if it makes some more sense to you, so you make your own judgement. I’m going to put it like telling a story, you can just imagine as being told to you, anytime before 9/11, and see if it sounds credible, plausible, or not:

I – WTC I & II

Early in the morning of September 11th, 2001, an airliner changes its’ route all of a sudden in a totally suspicious action, and not only it is not intercepted, but actually NO ACTION IS TAKEN by USAF or US NAVY, to bring it down.

This airplane hits WTC1 (North tower) at 8.46 in the morning of 9/11/2001 (this alone would be difficult to believe).

A second airplane hits, 17 minutes later, WTC2 (South tower). Yet again, no military action had been taken.

If the fact of one jetliner hitting one of the most iconic buildings in the world is almost inconceivable, now two towers, is completely outlandish.

All this means that, as easily as it happened we have to accept the version that the main military power in the World, with an outstanding and impeccable service of Intelligence, couldn’t deal with the previous facts. as well as the fact that Al-qaeda terrorists were trained in the USA to fly commercial jets.

Now, let’s pay attention to the next event, which is definitely, out of this World.


A third airplane is also seized and forced to fly off course, shortly after WTC 1 & 2 attacks. The target of this flight will be … yes, there’s no mystery in it, we all know it: the Pentagon. The third objective of the terrorist attack is the Headquarters of all military forces of the main military power in the world. And, once more, no military action had been taken.

What happened to American airlines flight 77? Was it actually the Boeing 757 what crashed against the Pentagon?

Since the jet hit the building in a low-flying approach, according to the only video released by authorities, almost touching ground with the engines, at 800+ km/h, how expert must a pilot be to control a jet in such conditions?

Setting aside the analysis of the size and shape of the opening in the façade, when you see the pictures after the collision, you can see traces of smoke outside the building, in areas close to the impact, but none in the sectioned left side of the building, where you can even see COMPUTERS, FURNITURE and even PAPER (!!!!!) without a single sign of fire….

And, if it wasn’t an airplane, then what was it?

Now it’s getting even worse, if it wasn’t AA flight 77 what hit the Pentagon, what happened to that flight and all its passengers?


Located on the north side of the plot, WTC 7 obviously received great part of debris from the WTC I & II collapse. No structural damage was suffered by WTC 7. Only “fires” were declared in the building, in spite of which, it’s really hard to explain how if comes down about 7 hours after the attacks to WTC I & II.

When you see the videos, the building amazingly starts to collapse from the centre to the edges… The side façades slowly start to lean inwards, until the whole construction falls within its own perimeter. Controlled demolition?

“The private tenants were Salomon Smith Barney, American Express Bank International, Standard Chartered Bank, Provident Financial Management, ITT Hartford Insurance Group, First State Management Group, Inc., Federal Home Loan Bank, and NAIC Securities.

Large numbers of case files for ongoing investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) were reportedly destroyed in the collapse. The Los Angeles Times reported that “substantial files were destroyed” for 3000 to 4000 of the SEC’s cases. The EEOC reported that documents for 45 active cases were destroyed.   Before the attack, SEC investigations of corporate fraud by companies such as Enron and Worldcom were the subject of many news reports — reports that virtually vanished in the wake of the attack.”

So, where does all this lead us?

In my case, it leads me to such a bewilderment with so many questions I find impossible to answer, that it’s difficult not to fall into a paralysis, because the main questions, and maybe the biggest ones, that come into my mind, are:

What do I do now?  

What should I do?  

What CAN I do?

The issue is so huge, so unattainable, that our minds would rather put it aside, and keep on struggling with our everyday life, than conceive something so dreadful. We don’t even feel able to sustain these matters for too much time, without start feeling a bit mad, for the whole thing is outrageously insane.

But today, it’s not the day after 9/11/2001, nor the 5th anniversary. Ten years have already passed since then. We have to overcome the emotional impact, we MUST cope with this event. We, people, must demand not only in the USA, but  in the whole world, for A REAL INVESTIGATION IN  SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH, and that finally, JUSTICE IS DONE.

To me, all the dead are still expecting, if anything,  that COMMITMENT, that ENGAGEMENT from us, more than any other remembrance or celebration.

May they only then, rest in peace. 

Let’s not just leave it to hope.

Fall and all attendant memories
Crowd the day with unrelated histories
Each year leaves its unresolving fantasies
To hang around each corner
Hang around each street.

Thick with ghosts, the wind whips round in circuitries
Carrying words as strangers exchange pleasantries
Do they intrude upon your private reveries
As they meet you on each corner
Meet you on each street.

Watch for daily braveries
Notice newfound courtesies
Finger sudden legacies
As they clean up every corner
Wash down every street.

Mark the month and all its anniversaries
Put away the draft of all your eulogies
Clear the way for all your private memories
As they meet you on each corner
Meet you on every street.

Make the time for all your possibilities.
They live on every street

Suzanne Vega.
