Saboteurs Attacking The 9/11 Truth Movement:
The No-WTC-Planes/Video-Fakery/Energy-Beams Disinformation Gang
A gang of disinformation agents is posing as 9/11 researchers
and attempting to sabotage the
9/11 truth effort
Their purpose in making the obviously absurd claims is to confuse
the public into thinking that 9/11 researchers are crackpots,
and therefore their information should be ignored.
- Claiming that they themselves are 9/11 researchers
(which they are not, because they don't use scientific methods)
- Broadcasting lying smear attacks against the actual 9/11 researchers,
in order to discredit the actual research results.
- Making absurd claims: that no planes hit the World
Trade Center, that the dozens of videos showing the planes
were all faked, that the WTC was destroyed by energy beams
or H-bombs, etc.

1. The Gang's Motive
The American/Israeli/British fascist governments have used
their Big Lie -- that the 9/11 attacks were done by "Islamic Terrorists"
-- as their pretext for murdering millions of people in Afghanistan,
Iraq, Libya, Syria, Palestine and Pakistan, practicing the most horrible
upon innocent people, instituting surveillance, invasion of privacy,
and the threat of kidnapping, torture, and murder against their own
citizens, and threatening to censor or shut down the Internet.
In other words, for creating the
"New World Order"
-- a global fascist slave state.
The 9/11 truth effort is having ever increasing success in reaching
the public with the results of the scientific analysis showing
that the World Trade Center was destroyed by pre-planted explosives and
incendiaries that "Islamic Terrorists" could not possibly have
placed in the buildings. This worries the criminal elements of
the U.S. government greatly, and both Bush and Obama have ordered
that the government story about 9/11 must never be questioned, and that
those who do question it are terrorists in league with
(which actually does not exist as an organized international
The U.S. government has created websites, magazine articles, and books
claiming to refute the 9/11 physical research, but these government
productions have been shown to be full of lies. So, in order to
disrupt the effectiveness of the 9/11 truth movement directly, a
COINTELPRO type operation was apparently initiated, as it
has been against virtually all organizations and movements opposing
U.S. government fascist wars and oppression. The operations of the
Disinformation Gang fit the usual COINTELPRO pattern.
2. Disinformation Gang Members
Major participants in the Disinformation Gang (as I call it) are James Fetzer,
Morgan Reynolds (former chief economist of G W Bush's Department of Labor),
Judy Wood, Ace Baker, Rosalee "Webfairy" Grable,
Nico Haupt, Gerard Holmgren, Rick Siegel, Jeff Hill, and a number
of others who hide their identity under pseudonyms like "Coffinman".
James Fetzer is a former JFK assassination "researcher"
who claimed that the Zapruder film -- which is the most important piece of
evidence in the case and proves that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have been
the killer -- was faked by the government, and therefore was not valid as evidence.
He's now making similar disinformational statements about the videos that
show the planes hitting the WTC towers.
Fetzer was a co-founder with physicist Steven Jones of the Scholars for 9-11 Truth,
which initially was the most credible and effective 9/11 research organization,
since it listed as members hundreds of professional experts in various relevant fields.
But once the Scholars achieved wide recognition, Fetzer began publishing
on the organization's website the obviously absurd claims of the
Disinformation Gang -- that no planes hit the WTC, that the videos showing
the planes had all been faked, etc. Many of the members raised strong
objections to his actions, but Fetzer continued pushing the lies
(and still does currently, last noted September 2010).
In December 2006 a vote was taken on this issue among the members
of Scholars for 9-11 Truth, over Fetzer's angry objections,
and his policy of pushing lying disinformation was rejected by 153 to 9.
In spite of this, he refused to stop, and so Steven Jones and most of the
members left and formed the
Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice.
3. General Methods Used
The most successful factor in exposing the government lies about
9/11 has been scientific investigation of the physical evidence.
This evidence and its analysis are objective, and can't be countered
by excuses like, "General Myers didn't send up interceptor jets
because he was in a meeting when the airliners were hijacked."
Physicist Steven Jones, author David Ray Griffin, and architect
Richard Gage have been among the most effective in
bringing this information to the public.
Just as the 9/11 truth movement was having substantial success
in getting the word out, a small gang of people, many hiding
their identity, sprang up and began spewing out huge amounts of
disinformation masquerading as scientific research, but
contradicting the real research. These people support one another,
and say that they are the only real 9/11 researchers.
The gang's disinformation includes claims that no planes hit the World Trade
Center, that all the videos showing the planes hitting were faked
by the government, and that the WTC was destroyed by energy beam
weapons or H-bombs (not by explosives and thermite).
On critical examination,
the gang's assertions all turn out to be utter lies, but some people who don't
have a scientific background are taken in by them. However, most
people realize that with many thousands of New Yorkers observing
the Twin Towers after the first
plane hit WTC1, a claim that no plane hit WTC2 is the most absurd nonsense.
And so when the gang members make this claim, and also insist that they
themselves are the real 9/11 researchers, the effect is to sabotage
and discredit the 9/11 truth community as crackpots and fools.
The disinfo gang has published many hundreds of videos, blog entries,
forum posts, and web pages. They appear to be well financed.
Their enormous campaign also includes direct lying smear attacks
against the most effective real 9/11 investigators and activists --
Steven Jones, David Ray Griffin, and Alex Jones.
The goal of all this activity seems to be to confuse the public
into thinking that real 9/11 researchers are spouting absurd garbage
like "No planes hit the World Trade Center" and "All the WTC
plane crash videos were faked". Even people without a scientific
education, just using common sense, know that these claims are
ridiculous. And that is the goal of the Disinformation Gang!
They want people to think that the 9/11 truth movement is full of
idiots and crackpots, so people will go back to believing the
government's lies, and welcoming a police state for protection
against nonexistent "terrorists".
4. Details of the Gang's Absurd Claims
In addition to making savage, lying personal attacks against the people
most successful in spreading the truth of 9-11 to the population --
Steven Jones, David Ray Griffin,
Richard Gage, and Alex Jones -- various gang members claim that
the following techniques were used in the destruction of the World
Trade Center. The fact that many of these violate well-known laws of
physics, contradict the evidence, and many are also mutually exclusive
doesn't inhibit the gang from making them.
Keep in mind that these claims are designed to be seen as absurd
in order to make people think that 9/11 researchers are nutballs.
Also, that all of the observed phenomena of the destruction of the WTC
can be accounted for by ordinary explosives, thermite, and conventional
This gang has created dozens of websites, blogs, forums, mailing lists,
Net radio programs, and various other outlets for their lies. Their
intention is to associate these nonsensical claims
with the actual 9-11 research movement, in order to discredit it.
They have already begun to succeed: articles have been
published in mainstream media saying that 9-11 researchers are nutty conspiracy
theorists who say that no planes hit the World Trade Center.
- Lie: "Energy beams, possibly from space satellites, destroyed the WTC."
Fact: Such beams would have required the combined
power of hundreds of nuclear power plants, would have
made the concrete dust burning hot, would have burned people on the ground,
would have made enormous lightning bolts in the air, and could not have
penetrated even one of the hundred steel floor pans.

The Overwhelming Implausibility of Using Directed Energy Beams
to Demolish the World Trade Center Towers
Proof That The WTC Steel Was Not Destroyed By Energy Beams
Proof That Vehicles Were Not Burned By Energy Beams
- Lie: "No planes hit the WTC."
Fact: A few people saw the first plane hit, and many thousands who were
watching the fire caused by the first plane saw the second plane hit,
which was also captured on dozens of videos and still photos.
- Lie: "An airliner is made of thin aluminum like a beer can, and couldn't
possibly penetrate a steel and concrete building."
Fact: On July 28, 1945, a B-25 bomber crashed into the 78th floor of the Empire
State Building in the fog. It was moving at about 225 mph, 41% of the
speed of the planes that hit the WTC, so it had about 17% of the kinetic energy
per pound as the WTC planes. Nevertheless, the fuselage penetrated the building
as can be seen in these:
shot from a ledge above the crash, showing the parts of the plane that remained outside.
Fact: The frames of airliners, including the large structural members
inside the wings, by which the wings' lifting force supports
the weight of the fuselage and its contents, are made of extremely strong
and tough aluminum alloy, or steel.
The kinetic energy of a moving object is equal to 0.5
times its mass times its velocity squared. The planes were traveling
at about 550 miles per hour, so each pound of metal in them had one hundred
times as much kinetic energy as a pound of metal in a car going 55 mph,
which can bend and tear steel objects.
- Lie: "Video Fakery" "All of the videos and photos, even those made by private people,
were faked by the government."
Fact: All of the analyses presented by the gang to "prove" this
turns out to be lies, in some cases using tampered versions of the
- Lie: "Nose-Out" "Video fakery is proved by some faked videos showing
the nose of the second plane emerging from the opposite side of WTC2,
which is impossible, since it could not have penetrated that far.
This was caused by an error in video fakery,
which allowed the faked image of the nose to travel too far."
Fact: Refuted in detail
What is said to be an image of the plane's nose is actually a plume
of dust and flame,
While the planes penetrated the buildings, they disintegrated as they
encountered the buildings' frames, walls, and concrete cores. The only
thing that came out intact was an engine.
- Lie: "All the witnesses who saw the planes hit were lying or brainwashed
by watching TV."
Fact: The impact of the second plane was seen and reported by
hundreds of professional firemen and police, and by thousands of citizens.
They saw it with their eyes directly, not via TV.
- Lie: "What were seen as planes that hit the WTC
were actually holograms."
Light from a hologram generator travels in straight lines. The second
plane was seen by many thousands of people and dozens of video and still
cameras. For a hologram plane to appear as large as a 767 to all these
people and cameras at various distances
and angles from the WTC, the hologram generator would have to
be as large as a 767 so that the light rays from the nose and tail of
the image would originate from points separated by the length of a
767 (159 feet). That's the only way the image could appear to be
as large as a 767 to all the observers.
The hologram generator would also have to be as wide
as the wingspan of a 767. That would be far more difficult than simply
using a 767, and would not yield any advantage over it.
We estimate the size of an object from its distance and
the size of its image on our
retinas, which is determined by the angle between the light waves
coming from the head and from the tail of the object. In order for
these waves to come in at different angles, they have to originate
at separate points, because light travels in straight lines.
The reason for pushing holograms is to support the lie that the planes
were made of soft beer-can aluminum and thus could not have penetrated
the steel and concrete towers. See above.
Fact: A hologram cannot appear darker than the objects behind it.
Holograms are projected light. There is no such thing as projected
darkness. But the planes did appear darker than the sky behind them
in the videos and photographs.
- Lie: "Missing parts of planes in videos prove that the planes were holograms."
Fact: All of the videos were compressed to one-tenth or less of their original bandwidth.
This is done to all TV signals to allow ten or more channels to be carried over the cable
bandwidth that formerly carried only one. The compression algorithms throw away any details
that would not be seen by a viewer watching the video at the standard speed and distance
from the screen. Thus when a compressed video is viewed in slow motion, defects --
compression artefacts -- can often be seen.
- Lie: "UFO orbs -- glowing balls of light -- appeared in the videos."
Fact: These were simply the lights of helicopters in the distance. Some
of them can be seen to be helicopters as they fly closer to the camera.
- Lie: "The WTC was destroyed by 'scalar waves'."
Fact: "Scalar wave devices" do not exist. They are a fraud
created by Tom Bearden.
- Lie: "Hutchison effect"
Fact: which also doesn't exist and is a fraud by John Hutchison
- Lie: "The WTC was destroyed by micro-hydrogen bombs that didn't have fission triggers"
Fact: Such bombs don't exist, and each would have made an enormous flash and bang,
and would have made large amounts of radioactive elements by neutron activation,
which were not found. The small amount of tritium
that was found came from the smashed tritium-powered fluorescent exit signs in the planes.
- Lie: "Missiles hidden by 'cloaking devices' hit the WTC."
Fact: "Cloaking devices" do not exist.
- Lie: flocks of UAVs -- unmanned aerial vehicles -- to account for
individual puffs of dust and smoke during the crashes
Fact: these were caused simply by turbulent air flow
Cars Were Not Burned By Energy Beams
Here is a refutation of one of their claims -- that cars near the WTC were burned
in peculiar ways that proves they were hit by energy beams from space:
Ordinary burned cars with the same damage as WTC cars
The "Spire" Did Not Turn To Dust
The disinfo gang claims that the WTC steel "spire" -- some girders that
remained standing briefly after one of the towers fell -- was "dustified" by
directed energy beams, this based on low-resolution video from which it's
impossible to tell what happened. In fact, any type of energy that can reduce solid steel
to dust would have to vaporize it first, which would require heating it to beyond
white-hot in order to overcome the very strong interatomic bonds that make
steel such a strong construction material. Such heating would cause the steel to
emit a blindingly bright blue-white light. Of course this didn't happen.
What did happen is shown in the two closeup higher resolution videos below:
the spire simply fell,
mostly dropping vertically downward. At the end the tallest part also begins a rotation
to the left, which can be seen in the second video. The sideways motion causes some
blurring due to the video compression process. A lesser degree of blurring is
seen in the first video as the spire falls, but it's clear that the various
parts of the structure remain intact, because they keep their geometric
relationship with one another; dust clouds could not do that.
If your video player won't display these, download and install mplayer.
It runs on Linux, Mac OSX, and Microsoft Windows, and can expand videos
to full-screen, and also run them in slow-motion or frame by frame,
so you have time to perceive and understand what's happening.
Is the No-WTC-Planes/Video-Fakery/Energy-Beams Disinformation Gang
People in various 9-11 truth groups are now starting to connect
the following facts:
The U.S. government has carried out COINTELPRO operations --
infiltration, disinformation, and disruption --
against all major anti-war, anti-racist, and pro-environmental
organizations in the past.
The 9-11 truth movement is exposing as a huge and murderous fraud the 9-11
pretext for the entire "eternal war against terrorism" --
which is actually for war profiteering, seizure of oil
resources, extension of geopolitical/military power, and
obedience to the demands of the state of Israel.
It is therefore very likely that a COINTELPRO operation
is being undertaken against the 9-11 truth movement.
No-WTC-Planes/Video-Fakery/Energy-Beams Disinformation Gang
has all the
characteristics of a COINTELPRO operation against the 9-11
truth movement, and it is the only group that does.
