NEW YORK, As the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, 12 former CIA, FBI, NSA, and US military officials — including Time Magazine’s 2002 person of the year, Colleen Rowley, and former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who provided the daily brief for three presidents — say in an open letter to President Obama that the charge that President Assad used chemical weapons on August 21st is based on false intelligence.
If this charge is false, and leads to war in Syria, it would not be the first time US leaders have misled their public into going to war. Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War, admitted in 2003 that America went to war in Vietnam on the false intelligence that North Vietnam had attacked a US destroyer in the Gulf of Tonkin.
The 9/11 Consensus Panel was formed to deal with another notorious fraudulent pretext for war, the attacks of September 11, 2001, that triggered the “war on terror” and the ongoing military actions in the Middle East.
The professional 24-member Panel was formed in 2011 to show the public that behind the horrific images of planes crashing into the Towers lies a wealth of slowly emerging evidence that 9/11 was a false flag operation.
Using a standard medical review model, the Panel has thus far produced 37 Consensus Points refuting the official story, five of which are released today.
For example, the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s report on the collapse of World Trade Center 7 failed, despite seven years of effort, to produce a computer simulation replicating the instant straight-down collapse of this 47-story steel-framed skyscraper.
(WTC7, the Achilles heel of 9/11, is featured in the worldwide month-long ReThink911 campaign. A pollreleased Monday shows that one in two Americans doubt the official account. A new documentary by award-winning film-maker Massimo Mazzucco summarizes 12 years of evidence.)
In addition, the official accounts of telephone calls from the airliners, and the surveillance camera images of the hijackers, do not withstand close scrutiny.
Other issues are seismic evidence of explosions below the towers, and molten metal running below the debris for weeks afterwards.
These things were widely observed but never reported in official documents. It is the task of the 9/11 Consensus Panel to make them known.
