An american view
 THE GATES Date 11/4/01 55552 AM Pacific
 Standard Time
by Colonel Donn de Grand Pré (US Army - Ret.)

A dedicated group of experienced civilian and military pilots,
including combat fighter pilots and commercial airline
captains, just finished a marathon 72 hours of non-stop
briefings and debate over the current crisis evolving from
the use of commercial aircraft as cruise missiles against
the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 11 September.

The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly executed
military operation against the United States, requiring the
utmost professional military skill in command,
communications and control. It was flawless in timing, in
the choice of selected aircraft to be used as guided
missiles, and in the coordinated delivery of those missiles
to their pre-selected targets.

As a tactical military exercise against two significant
targets (world financial center and the citadel of world
strategic military planning), the attack, from a
psychological impact on the American public, equaled the
Japanese "surprise" attack on Pearl Harbor 7 Dec

The over-riding question If we are at war, who is the enemy?

The group determined that the enemy is within the gates, that
he has infiltrated into the highest policy-making positions
at the Federal level, and has absolute control, not only of
the purse strings, but of the troop build-up and deployment
of our military forces, including active, reserve and
National Guard units.


The 9-11 activity and horrific destruction of US property and
lives was intentionally meant to trigger a psychological
and patriotic reaction on the part of the US citizens,
which is paving the way for "combined UN
activity" (using the fig leaf of NATO) for striking
key targets in both the Middle East/ South Asia and the
Balkans. The goal continues to be ultimate destruction of
all national sovereignty and establishment of a global

The trigger for the 9-11 activity was the imminent and
unstoppable world-wide financial collapse, which can only
be prevented (temporarily) by a major war, perhaps to
become known as WW 111. To bring it off (one more time),
martial law will probably be imposed in the United States.

In each of the major wars of the 20th century, the financial
manipulators (located in the City of London and New York
City) had placed the US (and much of the Western world) in
a monetary expansion mode, followed by an ever-tightening
vice of a gigantic credit squeeze.

We now have two ongoing
and tightly controlled simultaneous events (emanating from
the two symbolic targets of 911 1) Alan Greenspan, Fed
chairman, promising to flood the market with up to $200
billion in FRNs and to further lower interest rates, thus
bringing about hyperinflation and dollar devaluation.

Much of these multi billions in largesse will be dumped into the
coffers of Wall Street, Defense, bankrupt airlines,
insurance companies and into the willing arms of
debt-ridden third-world countries in the form of debt
repudiation (forgiveness). Call it bribery, in order to get
these often reluctant nations to join our coalition of
"freedom fighters" in "the war against

2) Paul Wolfowitz, deputy Defense secretary, promised that the
US will launch "sustained military strikes against
those behind the terrorist attacks on New York and
Washington". He said that the "military
retaliation would continue until the roots of terrorism are

This bit of saber rattling was seconded by select NATO allies
(especially Britain), and by our chief ally in the Middle
East, Ariel Sharon, while Secretary
of Defense Don Rumsfeld, with the blessings of Pres. Bush
11, is activating thousands of national guard and
reservists, not only to guard the vulnerable airports, but
to do fly-overs of our Nation's capital in F16s from the
North Dakota Air Guard. Other National Guard units are
being jockeyed into potential combat "hot spots"
throughout the Middle East/South Asia and the Balkans.


Following is a summary of the near-unanimous views of the
assembled military and civilian pilots concerning certain
critical factors relating to the WTC/Pentagon hit of 9-11
Troubling questions arose about the alleged pilot-hijackers
of the four aircraft, who were supposedly trained on Cessna
aircraft over the past year at fields in Florida and
Oklahoma. One General officer remarked, "I seriously
question whether these novices could have located a target
dead-on 200 miles removed from takeoff point...-- much less
controlled the flight and mastered the intricacies of 11FR
(instrument flight rules) -- and all accomplished in 45

The extremely skillful maneuvering of the three aircraft at
near mach speeds, each unerringly hitting their targets,
was superb. As one Air Force officer -- a veteran of over
100 sorties over North Vietnam -- explained, "Those
birds (commercial airliners) either had a crack fighter
pilot in the left seat, or they were being maneuvered by
remote control."

Another pilot warned that "we had better consider whether
electro-magnetic pulse or radio frequency weapons were used
from a command and control platform hovering over the
Eastern Seaboard... I'm talkin' AWACS."

Another comment "If there was an AWACS on station over
the targeted area, did it have a Global Hawk capability? I
mean, could it convert the commercial jets to robotic
flying missiles?

A hotly debated question Who would be in command of such an
Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)? Were they
Chinese -- Russians -- Saudis -- Israelis -- NATO ? All of
these countries possess AWACS-type aircraft. All (except
the Saudis) have the capability to utilize electro-magnetic
pulsing (EMP) to knock out on-board flight controls and
communications of targeted aircraft, and then, to fly them
by remote control.

One of the Air Force officers explained that we had already
flown a robot plane the size of a Boeing 737 across the
Pacific to Australia -- unmanned -- from Edwards AF13 in
California to a successful landing on an Aussie base in
South Australia. It flies along a pre-programmed flight
path, but is "monitored" (controlled remotely) by
a pilot from an outside station.

He explained that the London Economist (20 Sep 2001) published
comments from the former CEO of British Airways, Robert
Ayling, who stated that an aircraft could be commandeered
from the ground or air and controlled remotely in the event
of a hijack.


An AP story, dateline Brussels - 7 Oct 01 -- "At
Washington's request, NATO will soon deploy surveillance
aircraft for anti-terrorist operations in the United States
in response to the attacks on New York and Washington,
 NATO officials said Sunday, an unprecedented use of foreign
military forces to defend the U.S. homeland."

The assembled group of pilots debated why we would ask for
foreign forces to fly AWACS over our sovereign territory
when we have a fleet of 33 of them, of which 28 are stationed
 in Oklahoma. The debate also centered on whether such
NATO surveillance aircraft were already here prior to 11

Could one of them have commandeered the four airliners?

There seems to be wide discrepancies between what the
 Federalgovernment is proclaiming -- and their media moguls
reporting -- as opposed to the calm and reasoned and
rational views of those men who fly the planes and defend
the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

This writer has been a general aviation pilot since 1946.
 1 have flown a variety of single engine prop aircraft since,
 and installed an FAA-approved airstrip here on my farm in
1980. Two local pilots periodically joined me for short
hops; one, a Madison County lawyer, a graduate of the Air
Force Academy, who flew for the Air Force before coming
home to practice law.

The other, Kent Hill, who lives with his wife, Carol, on a
farm close to mine, is an American Airlines captain
assigned to the European route. He was a lifelong friend of
"Chic" Burlingame, They were graduates of the
Naval Academy and flew F-4 Phantoms in Vietnam. Both left
the Navy 28 years ago and joined American Airlines. Both
planned to retire in 2002. Chic was the captain of AA
flight 77, a Boeing 757, which departed Washington Dulles
for Los Angeles at 8 10 am on I I September, with 58
passengers and a crew of 6. Flight 77 crashed into the
Pentagon at 941 am.

"We were totally trained on the old type of hijack,"
Capt Hill said, "where you treat the hijacker
cordially, punch a 4-digit code into your transponder to
alert ground control you're being hijacked, and then get
him where he wants to go, set the plane safely on the
ground and let them deal with it on the ground. However,
this is a totally new situation... Not one of the planes
alerted ground control that they were being hijacked."
How come?

"The fact is, all the transponders were turned off on the
doomed flights virtually at the same time." Look at
their departure times -- two from Logan (Boston), one from
Newark, another from Dulles (Washington DC) -- all between
8 am and 815.

"Shortly after climb-out to flight level, their
transponders are de-activated.. (they are no longer a blip
on the radar screens). This is something that really needs
to be looked into. The only reason we turn them off is so
they don't interfere with ground systems when we

(Note Transponders identify a particular aircraft in flight
on the radar screens of FAA flight controllers located
throughout the country. Various codes are punched into the
transponder, one displaying, "I am being

Although there is much talk among the various flight crews,
Hill says they are not privy to any of the investigations
into the events of I I September. "We're in the dark
-- very much so ... They're playing it pretty tight to the

He is convinced none of the pilots had control of their
aircraft when they were flown into the World Trade Center
and the Pentagon. The question then becomes, who was really
in control?

"Even if I had a gun at my head, I'd never fly a plane
into a building. I'd try to put it in anywhere -- a field
or a river --and I'd be scaring the hell out of them
 (the hijackers) by flying upside down first," Hill

In fact, the pilot has the best weapon in his hand when
threatened with imminent death by a hijacker, namely,
the airplane.

Another airline pilot stated. "On hearing a major scuffle
in the cabin, the pilot should have inverted the aircraft
and the hijackers end up with broken necks."

That none of the four pilots executed such a maneuver
points toward the fact that none of them had control of
 their aircraft, but had been overridden by an outside force,
which was flying them by remote control.

As an old and not so bold pilot, I became more convinced that
the four commercial jets were choreographed by a
"conductor" from a central source, namely an airborne warning
 and control system (AWACS). They have the electronic capability
 to engage several aircraft simultaneously, knock out their on-board
flight controls by EMP (electro-magnetic pulsing) and assume command and remote control of these targeted aircraft.

As we consider all the options -- and enemies -- who performed
this act of war, whether from China, Russia, an Islamic country,
or from NATO, we must also consider that the enemy may be
within the gates.

    If so, then we are dealing with
    high treason.The same source
    sent another email to me

Date   10/23/2001 82556 PM Pacific Daylight Time

I want to start out by responding to that tiny percentage of negative email
I receive that accuses me of being anti American. I'm not. I think America
 is a great place, and the American people by and large are to be admired.

What I am against is any government that lies to its people. This includes
the government of the United States which, contrary to Bill Clinton's
comments on the matter, is not the same thing as the country. The country
 is the people. The country is the land. The country is those who build, teach,
heal, grow, manufacture, and along the way raise a family. The United States
is not found in the marble buildings along the Potomac. The United States is
found in the homes and hearts of 266 million Americans.

The government, its self delusions of grandeur aside, is nothing but a
custodian, and a temporary one, hired by the people to care for our nation,
and if that custodian fails in that job, like any menial, they should be
replaced. Our nation did just that once before, in 1776, and it must be
remembered that those who were called "Patriot" were those who stood
with the people of the nation, not with the corrupted government.

There is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the government,
 as custodian of the nation, to lie to the people. It's just not in there. And
yet the government of the United States has been caught repeatedly lying to
the people of the nation in recent years, lying about Vince Foster , TWA 800,
Waco , Martin Luther King , John F. Kennedy , The Oklahoma City Bombing ,
and others too numerous to mention. Suffice it to say that if the government
of the United States finds itself with a credibility problem, it has only
itself to blame.

When the government of the United States lies to the people, it acts
illegally and un-Constitutionally and by the strict interpretation of that
document ceases to be the legal government of the land. But let us
set that aside for the moment and look at why the US Government lies
 to the people and what such lies have accomplished in the past. Only
 then can we understand why the reasoning citizen must have serious
 doubt we are being told the truth by the government in the present case.

Some of the biggest lies told by the government of the United States are
those used to initiate a war. Modern pundits keep equating the attacks of
9/11 to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

This is a slippery, indeed dangerous analogy, since it has been proven in
recent years, by way of recently declassified documents, that FDR
deliberately maneuvered Japan into the attack on Pearl Harbor and
kept theHawaii commanders from knowing of the attack so that there
 would be plentyof dead bodies with which to enrage Americans into
support of a war that as of December 6th, 1941, nobody wanted.
American boys, shouting "Remember Pearl Harbor", marched off to war.
 Many did not come back.

The Spanish/American war was likewise started with deception. The Hearst
Newspapers flooded the land with stories of Spanish abuses of the Cuban
people; stories which turned out to be fictional and which were published
solely to fan the flames of a war, not for the benefit of the Cuban people,
but to enlarge American territory and influence.

When USS Maine exploded in Havana Harbor, the Captain of that ship
 insisted that the explosion was not the result of any attack. But he was
 shouted down by the press, and American boys, shouting "Remember
 The Maine", marched off to war. Many did not come back. And all
because of a lie. In 1975, a review of the evidence by admiral Hyman
 Rickover, the father of the modern nuclear Navy, concluded that there
 hadn't been any Spanish mine at all, just as the Maine's Captain had
 reported. The ships had suffered a fire in a coal
bunker, detonating the ship's magazine, imprudently located nearby.

The same with the Gulf of Tonkin. Even as Johnson exhorted the American
people to respond to the torpedo attack on the Maddox, Johnson knew
there hadn't really been any torpedoes, not had the USS Maddox been as
innocent as claimed. American boys again marched off to war. Many did
not come back.

Following the Bay of Pigs, which was by any definition an invasion of a
foreign nation, the US Joint Chiefs proposed staging fake terrorist attacks
that would be blamed on Cuba, to build support for a second invasion.

Of course, there is nothing new about politicians using terror on
 their own citizens to get what they want. The trick goes back
to Roman times, and even Hitler found it useful.

So, let's take a moment to push aside those flags being held in front
of our eyes like blindfold and take a close look at the current situation.

The United States government, despite nice sounding speeches about
 freedom and Democracy (sic This author should have said Republics)
 , has a record of  overthrowing actual working Democracies (sic This
 author should have said  Republics) and supporting outright  dictatorships.

The US, for example, backed Cuban Dictator Batista, Chile's Pinochet, the
Shah of Iran, and the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, to name just a few.
The US backed these regimes because the dictators were willing to do
favors for American multi-national corporations.

Batista, for example, kept the prices of Cuban agricultural products
below the prevailing market rate. This made American companies
 like United Fruit and PepsiCo more profitable, at the expense of the
 Cuban farmers, who eventually revolted, bringing Castro to power.

Castro let the market set the price of Cuban produce, whereupon the
 United States declared an embargo and invaded at the Bay of Pigs.
Then we wonder why the Cuban people may not like

Another classic example of US foreign policy as it really is was South
America. Chile had a working democracy under Allende. But US corporate
interests saw a greater chance for profits if the Democracy
(sic This author should have said Republics)
were to be replaced by a dictator friendly to US interests.

This led to the US backed coup, complete with torture squads trained by US
experts. Henry Kissenger flat out stated that the United States had a right
to intervene in any Democracy  (sic This author should have said Republics)
that voted contrary to American interests, adding, "The issues are much too
important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves."

Same deal in Iran. The US Government backed the Shah of Iran. The rich got
richer, the poor got poorer (same as in the United States) and the people of
Iran revolted, bringing the Ayatollah Khomeini to power. Iran was our
friend, now it's our enemy.

The same with Iraq, once our friend, and now our enemy. Indeed, the United
States keeps switching sides so often, with the American people expected to
follow along like lemmings, that one is reminded of George Orwell's "1984"
in which the perpetually warring nations are always changing allegiance, and
the war weary people wake up one morning to be told, "Eastasia is our friend.
Eastasia has always been our friend. Pacifica is the enemy."
This brings us to Osama Bin Laden.
Osama is the modern equivalent of Orwell's "Emmanual Goldstien", the
boogie man on whom the government blames everything. Even though
careful observers have long known the United States economy was poised
 for a major decline, the media is spinning the current economic woes as a
 direct result of the attacks on the World Trade Towers, in the hopes that the
 general public will be stupid enough to believe it.

If Orwell is not to your taste, then let's try L. Frank Baum and the "Wizard
Of Oz", who used a paper mache' mask to scare Dorothy Gale into doing
war with the Wicked Witch of the West, something farm girls would not
normally be wise to do. After all, witches have air superiority!

Likewise, Osama appears to be a manufactured monster, designed to
 scare us into doing things we otherwise would not so, including support
a war, cease criticizing the government, and surrender our freedoms.

Contrary to the public media image of Osama, he is not a lifelong religious
fanatic. At the time the United States covert intervention in Afghanistan
triggered the Soviet invasion , Osama, like the rest of his family, was
living a westernized lifestyle. One of Osama's brothers was a business
partner with the son of the then vice-president and former head of the CIA,
George H. W. Bush.

The CIA needed a front man in Afghanistan to oppose the Soviets, since
Vietnam was too fresh a memory for the American people to tolerate another
war, especially since the lid had just been blown off of the COINTELPRO
scandal , revealing the criminal actions the FBI had engaged in to silence
opposition to that war.

So, trained and financed by the CIA, Osama quit being a westernized Saudi
and seemingly overnight became a fanatical muslim and financier/leader of
the fight against the Soviets, waging an indirect war on behalf of the United
States. Osama was a creation of the CIA and we only have the CIA's word
 that Osama isn't still in their employ. However, as another CIA asset, David
Ferrie, pointed out just prior to his own assassination, you don't leave the
agency. Once you are in, you are in for life!

Afghanistan is an interesting place. It has natural gas, petroleum, coal,
copper, chromite, talc, barites, sulfur, lead, zinc, iron ore, salt,precious
 and semiprecious stones, and more opium than the Burmese Golden
 It is also one of the most deadly places on Earth, having destroyed
every invading army since the time of Alexander the Great!

Afghanistan also sits on the proposed route for an oil pipeline which would
allow the vast oil reserves sitting under the Caspian Sea to be brought to
market, and it is no secret that a consortium of American oil companies want
to build that pipeline.

However, as John J. Maresca, vice president of international relations,
Unocal Corporation, flat out told Congress in 1998, the pipeline would not
be built until the Taliban was removed as the government in Afghanistan,
even though the United States had installed the Taliban as part of the
anti-Soviet strategy.

When one considers the size of the Caspian oil fields,
estimated at about 500 years' worth at present rates of
consumption, one finds ample motive to start a war of
 conquest for that wealth. Compared to the trillions of
 dollars in oil profits which will flow from that pipeline
 stretching across Afghanistan, the cost of new World
Trade Towers and a few thousand lives is a small price
 to pay to those who lust for wealth beyond dreams
 of avarice.

Long before the attacks on the World Trade Towers, the United States
 was already announcing that there would be a war. While the American
 people were kept distracted by "All Condit All The Time" in the American
 press, the foreign press was reporting as early as March 2001 that the
United States was planning to invade Afghanistan in October. and here
it is, October.
 and here the United States is invading. and just like with FDR, a
provocation occurred just when the government of the United States
most needed one to anger the people into support of a war for oil.

No sooner had the planes crashed into the World Trade Towers than
 the media was reporting official statements of suspicion that Osama
Bin Laden was behind the attacks. The FBI issued names of suspected
hijackers, none of which appeared on the actual passenger lists, and all
 based on what the FBI admits were forged IDs using stolen identities.

Moreover, the men used those stolen identities the night before the
 attacks to visit strip bars, making so much noise that they would have
to be noticed, ensuring that the credit card slips using the stolen names
would be turned over to police.

When Flight Attendant Madeline Sweeney phoned the ground from her
 hijacked plane, she gave the seat numbers of the hijackers.
The passengers assigned to those seats do not appear on the FBI's
 list of suspects. Then there was that suitcase, appearing out of nowhere
 and assumed to have been left off of one of the crashed planes by accident,
 containing a flight manual, a Koran, and a handwritten letter which any
scholar of Islam would recognize was written by someone ignorant of
 the religion.

In short, the evidence that purports to link the attacks on the World Trade
Towers with Osama appears to be planted, with the scene of the crime
 looking like the set of a cheap detective movie, with a vital clue always
carefully positioned within camera view.

Because of the phony IDs, we do not really know who was on those
 airplanes,or who they worked for.

But it is very obvious who we are all supposed to blame; the people sitting
on that oil pipeline right of way!

So great is the rush to war in Afghanistan that Osama has himself almost
become secondary in the media campaign to sell us all on hatred of the
Afghani people.

Indeed it isn't Osama who terrorizes Americans, it is the American media,
waving fear all over the place. Yes, Anthrax is nasty, but would a real
anthrax attack harm so few people? More people have been gunned down in
Washington DC in the last 6 weeks than have died by anthrax. More people
are sick with Dengue fever on Maui than are sick with Anthrax. Yet Anthrax,
and  the fear it is designed to cause, get the headlines, to keep the public
scared, so scared that they cannot think.

Because once the people stop being terrorized by the media and
start to think, they'll realize that it makes no more moral sense to
bomb the Afghani people over what crimes Osama has done than
 it makes to bomb people of Chicago over the crimes the mafia does.

And once the American people realize this, they'll start to wonder what the
real reason for bombing the Afghani people might be. Then they'll start
paying attention to John J. Maresca's comments before congress about that
oil pipeline. Then the American people will notice those foreign news articles
that announced the US invasion of Afghanistan last spring. Then the American
people will realize that the timing of the attacks on the World Trade Towers
is just a little too convenient to the already scheduled invasion.

And that is when the American people will realize that, once again, they
 are being lied to to swindle them out of their support for a war, a war not
fought for moral principle but for profit, profit from oil paid for in the
blood of our children.
