Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) March 26, 2006
Around midday on Wednesday, March 22nd - my son's birthday - Amy Schulman from CNN in New York called me up to ask if I had an author they could put on the air that very evening. They wanted an "objective and balanced" survey of the schools of 9/11 conspiracy thought for a story on Charlie Sheen. "You mean like the 'hop levels' in the New York Magazine article?" I asked. Yes, that's where she had read about my author Webster Tarpley. CNN sent a car to bring him to their Washington DC studio.
Two days before, on March 20th, two unexpected things had happened, and one expected one didn't.
Coincidence, or a coordinated counteroffensive against the neo-con crazies? Tarpley's guess is the financier oligarchy is not happy with its Bush-Cheney puppets, and wants them back on their leash before their mania for a war on Iran sinks the already deficit-drowning Anglo-American empire. (See his appearance on the Alex Jones show on Friday - partial transcript at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/WarOnFreedom/message/2867 , or listen to his World Crisis News show archive from Saturday March 25.)
That is, a more intelligent faction within the elite is threatening to use 9/11 like Watergate tapes to take out the "president" - without touching its "invisible government" asset. Do not count on a free flow of information that 9/11 was fabricated by US military intelligence. This may only be a warning shot across the White House lawn.
That seems to be why CNN aired only 30 seconds of the 15 minutes they taped of Webster Tarpley. The Wednesday show had clips of Charlie Sheen and comments by 911truth.org spokesman Michael Berger, who remembered to mention the arch-smoking-gun collapse of WTC Building 7. The outgunned defender of orthodoxy was Nicole Rittermeyer of National Geographic. Tarpley says she worked for a production company owned by a Skull & Bones Bush Brother...
On Friday, CNN invited the author of the New York Magazine article, Mark Jacobson, for which Tarpley and his publisher Progressive Press are infinitely thankful. On CNN, however, he just waffled. Apparently he already took all the liberties he can get in the article.
All three shows and the CNN poll emphasized "cover-up" and "unanswered questions." Vague terms. One of the most insidious cover-ups of 9/11 is a book with the title "Cover-Up" on the cover - by a CIA operative!
Thursday's star in this series was writer Erica Jong, who made strong statements about dictators like Hitler and Bush fabricating foreign enemies to terrorize their own people. Like Charlie Sheen, she emphasized that patriotism and love of country requires us to ask tough questions. A very constructive and intelligent approach to this issue. Get out the truth on 9/11 to save America, not to destroy it - Bush & Co. need no help with that.
Erica Jong: "My nephews have been saying for the past three, four years that we are not learning everything about 9/11... Charlie Sheen is really patriotic and brave to ask these questions...I read the article in "New York" magazine. And I think just asking questions is brave and patriotic... I don't know what the answer is. I don't know if we'll ever know. "
Well, if you don't have any idea after three, four years of investigating, the odds are you won't. Certainly not in time to stop World War IV from reaching Iran. Maybe after we're all dead.
Host and guest went on to promote Erica's new book. Meanwhile the man with the answers, a book full of them, in fact, got 30 seconds - Webster Tarpley, author of "9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA."
CNN showed Tarpley telling about the Zogby poll where every second New Yorker thought top officials had foreknowledge of 9/11. That is, they "let it happen on purpose," or "LIHOP." But Webster's book is the bible of the MIHOP school: US military intelligence Made it Happen from A to Z - no Arabs or Zarqawis. His model of state-sponsored false-flag terrorism, the rogue network of moles, patsies and paramilitary technicians, is the opener to the New York Magazine article.
The precedent is Operation Northwoods, a 1962 plan by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to fabricate an atrocity and blame it on Cuba. The plot was nixed by Kennedy. Northwoods documents were released under the Freedom of Information Act before Bush took power and set it aside after 9/11.
Showbiz Tonight did have full-MIHOP advocate Alex Jones on Thursday and Friday, and intrepid host AJ Hammer let him deliver a rapid-fire catalogue of more damning soundbytes. The hook is that the original Charlie Sheen interview was on the Alex Jones show. Jones had roundly assailed the media for not covering that interview. He may even have put the squeeze to Google, not known for squeezability, by posting screen shots showing Google had censored all links to it. Indeed, lately it sometimes seems necessary to use other search engines on such matters.
The American mainstream will always try to coopt the radical fringe when it gets too strong. CNN apparently is responding to the challenge of the alternative news media, while claiming fame as the first to break this story of "unanswered patriotic covered-up questions."
9/11 was the tour de force of audacity of what the secret services can get away with. Can they now pull off an even greater feat of illusionism: letting only half the cat out of the bag?
FOLLOW - UP
Friday, March 24 on the Alex Jones show Charlie Sheen and Webster G. Tarpley discussed the turning point in the struggle for 9/11 truth on CNN. All three agreed on the need for a truly independent, international Truth Commission. Partial transcript: More info: http://www.prisonplanet.com/listen.html
Alex Jones reported how covert operatives using credit cards keep trying to buy up his entire stock of Webster's book, 9/11 “Synthetic Terror: Made in USA” by sending the books to false addresses. Similar scams were directed at Webster's publisher ProgressivePress.com.
The exposure helped “9/11 Synthetic Terror” move up to #854 in Amazon sales rankings on Friday. Since the second edition was released in January, it is beating all other 9/11 books on Amazon. Yet censorship is blocking chain bookstores from stocking it, even though their megastores carry 100,000 titles on their shelves.
Saturday March 25th on World Crisis Radio, RBNLive.com, Webster Tarpley interviewed the avant garde of the 9/11 Truth Movement Dr. Jeff King (nom-de-net Plaguepuppy) and Nico Haupt. They agreed with Alex Jones and Webster Tarpley that the recent murder of 9/11 Truth Scholar and biotechnologist Michael Zubehr bore the marks of a political assassination.

On March 26th, Heinrich Buecker of http://www.hbuecker.net in Germany reported an international print blackout on the Sheen - CNN story. Google News returned only 2 hits on [Sheen Showbiz "Alex Jones"], both from the Internet, not print sources; Yahoo News returned none. Neither Google or Yahoo had any hits on Zubehr murder 9/11. Buecker said the CNN action might continue on Monday.
The CNN poll, “Do you agree with Charlie Sheen that the U.S. government covered up the real events of the 9/11 attacks?” moved up a notch to 84% YES answers (38794 votes). Frantic calls by neo-con radio talk show hosts like Sean Hannity for their listeners to overturn the results did not have the desired effect.
