9/11 ~ Truth Or Consequences

Frank O'Brien gives his take on 9/11. Frank O'Brien is a long time resident of Troy, NY, USA, and former head of Clan na Gael in same city, and area.

Like many people who watched first hand the events of Sept. 11th, living through the nerve wrenching anxiety and trauma, I felt grief not only from the massive loss of life, but also from knowing that from that day forward, that life as we knew it would never be the same.

I took at face value for years the official narrative spun out of whole cloth, that is, until I encountered certain videos years later on YouTube, and specifically the two episodes on it done by Jesse Ventura's "Conspiracy Theory," which aired on TruTV. All of what I had believed was slowly and incrementally deconstructed, leaving me to feel betrayed at first, then frightened out of my wits, my wits also having been slow to boot.

It has only been by discovering the truths that the official 9/11 commission left totally out of their report, that I could find any hope of feeling some level of healing set in.

The best podcast done so far by anyone on 9/11, bringing together the testimony of key witnesses to the behind the scenes events of that fateful day, is James Corbett's/"The Corbett Report"'s "9/11 Trillions: Follow the Money." Corbett masterfully weaves together the testimony of Richard Grove, Indira Singh and others, showing the 'money trail,' which in any criminal investigation is one of the most important aspects. Money laundering, rogue and insider trading happened both on that day and before the attacks, in the weeks leading up to it.

Both Grove and Singh provide big glimpses into varying views of these particular aspects of that horrible day, risking their lives in order to tell their stories. What you come away with is the utter conviction that some people on the inside knew way ahead of time that the attacks were going to happen.

In Singh's case, she encountered a mysterious company, called at the time, Ptech, which it turns out made software for risk management assessment, which was used by a huge number of US Federal agencies. It was slightly similar to the PROMIS software case that Michael C. Ruppert, and others, had been investigating for years, and like Ruppert, I conclude that in some way, there is a bit of connection between the two cases, if for no other reason, that the same key players keep showing up ... your neoconservative types!

Danny Casolaro, intrepid and brave investigator, died while investigating the earlier PROMIS software case, likely it being a murder crudely set up to look like a suicide. Casolaro called the group behind the conspiracy by the name, 'The Octopus,' and after delving into both, I can say with some certainty that this might very well be the same organization that was behind the 9/11 attacks.

Casolaro came to understand that the same political scandals of the 1980s, and further back ones, were connected in that this same organization was involved in them all. It was made up by defense contractor employees, bankers, former and current intelligence and military people, and ran up to at least the office of vice president, George H. W. Bush.

Not so ironically Bush's son, 'W.,' as he is called, ascended to the presidency in 2001, bringing with him some of the neoconservative players that had been in the Reagan, Ford and earlier presidential administrations. The connections between US state sponsored terrorism, and drug running run deep in this sordid real life tale, going all the way to secret societies, like Yale's 'Skull & Bones.' It was no accident that in 2004 that George W. Bush, and his Democratic running opponent were both members of this secret society, which had both Illuminati and neo-Nazi ties.

John Kerry, the democratic candidate had been in charge of the Senate committee in 1986, that looked into the drug dealing allegations of the Iran-Contra scandal, which ultimately came to nothing, though they admitted to there having been CIA involvement. Skull & Bones is knee deep in connections to the CIA, so you'd think Sen. Kerry would have recused himself from being in charge of the Senate investigation. No such animals exists in Washington officialdom, conflict of interests happening all the time.

The result of various independent investigations of CIA involvement with drug smuggling, mainly done to fund 'off the books' black ops, pysops and research and development of top secret technology, demonstrate a relationship between the CIA and organized crime going back to at least its inception, and before, when it was carried on by mainly the FBI and the military.

The CIA helped smuggle drugs during Vietnam by its airplane company cut out, Air America, and drugs were even smuggled in to the US in the dead bodies of service men who had died in action. There was a connection even back then to state sponsored terrorism in the form of NATO's Operation GLADIO, and involving certain Middle Eastern terrorist groups, and domestic terrorist underground groups like the Weather Underground.

Even Ronald Reagan had ties to organized crime vis-a-vis the screen actors guild, and other groups with similar ties on the West Coast, and his vice president, George H. W. Bush had ties to both organized crime and the CIA. Similar ties exist between organizations influencing US foreign policy, like the Bohemian Grove, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

Neoconservatives, or neocons as they're called for short, vastly populate the inner circles of power within these organizations, and their ties run deep in almost every major Washington, D.C. scandal of the past 35 years. Those that have gotten prosecuted by the 'good guys' in government wind up having had presidential pardons given to them, besides preferential treatment, like the much talked about 'country club' prisons.

'The Octopus' seems to be the operational arm of the secret, deep state government, made up also of career bureaucrats who are not elected to their positions of power, money and influence. As damning as the evidence has been against Bill Clinton, and his wife, Hillary, who have been tied to drug smuggling, money laundering and contract murders, his teflon shield always seems to hold up, even protecting him when running for the presidency in the early 1990s.

People didn't know at the time, but Clinton and George H. W. Bush were tied together through the CIA cocaine smuggling operation out of Mena, Arkansas, which had been itself tied in with the famous Iran-Contra Affair, and BCCI[Bank of Credit and Commerce International, aka Bank of Crooks and Criminals] Scandal. Banking, especially BIG banking, and Wall Street has had for decades strong ties with drug money laundering, the intelligence community, terrorism, and the usual financial shenanigans we now expect from these greedy crooked SOBs.

On, before, and after 9/11 these plethora of seedy and shocking connections, once again were exposed as having been involved in the whole terrible event. Our War on Terror was a sham set up by a deliberate, and atrocious false flag, orchestrated by the neocon cronies inside and outside of government. Casolaro's 'Octopus' no doubt was still alive and well, likely having played a strategic part in the carrying off of the attacks, and demolition of the two World Trade Center towers, besides Tower Six.

Once I learned of all these connections is when I truly said to myself that the world I thought I had known would never be the same. There is enough circumstantial connections between the financial crimes, our dealings with Saudi Arabia and Israel, and the behavior and location of certain key and important players, like Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld, that a fealess prosecutor could convene a grand jury in order to hear all of it, and doing a deeper investigation of it.

Using RICO statutes would be helpful in this endeavor in ferreting out the still unknown perpetrators, and filing charges against the top dogs, and their minions. War crimes could also be levied against them for what took place in Iraq, and of course, now Syria. Obama some how knows about these things, having had himself a mysterious background, with mysterious financial backers, not even being able to produce a legitimate birth certificate.

Now they expect us to seriously vote possibly for dear old Jeb Bush? Give me a break! The dirty little secrets about 9/11 are better documented than even the JFK assassination investigations, so it is just a matter of there being the political will to bring the guilty up on charges, including for war crime atrocities like torture, illegal rendition and assassinations.

Bin Laden was not killed by Seal Team 6, and he had worked all along for the CIA, going back to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Al Qaeda was the CIA code name for the mujahideen fighting the Soviets, when the CIA first got the idea for using Islamic terrorism to further their 'strategy of tension' to put the Middle and Near East in the order that their masters desired.

Getting back to Corbett's incredible podcast, it itself could be used to bring light upon these nefarious, and insidious connections, besides bringing criminal and war criminal charges. The current bogeyman, Daesh/ISIS/ISIL is yet another CIA and also Pentagon creation meant to destabilize the Middle East, also granting right wing Israel a chance for more land grabs. It is all a sham set up by high level tricksters in order to keep the world, and the American public under an authoritarian thumb.

The only ones out there fighting it in some way are the slightly equally bad old Russians and definitely bad Chinese, who have their own agendas. Personally though I pray that Putin, for all of his big talk with a small walk, comes to the plate, calling for a reinvestigation of 9/11, and the US/NATO GLADIO B state sponsored terrorism that it supports through proxy countries, like Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel. Putin is a very smart cookie who was in the former KGB, who has got to know more about what happened on 9/11. His help, supported by the Chinese and Iranian governments could be a game changer in how we look upon this perpetual War on Terror, and the instigating event of 9/11. If anybody could put pressure on the power elites of the world for a deeper investigation of what really lies behind this war, Putin stands out very well, especially given the coup d'etat pulled on him in the Ukraine by the CIA, State Department and the menacing NGOs[Non-Governmental Organizations, funded by people like billionaire, George Soros].

The 'Great Game' as the British used to call it, for the soft underbelly of Russia and China, in Eurasia, is still being played out according to certain plans. This is the GLADIO B operation that FBI whistleblower, Sibel Edmonds, documents in her book,"Lone Gladio," and which is very believable given how the US government has gagged her so completely in our courts.

Again, The Corbett Report, and Sibel's BoilingFrogsPost.com, do a masterful job in outing these treacherous geopolitical games played by the major Western powers. Go there to both so that you finally get to see and hear the truth about the West's quest for global domination and control. The sooner you will see then how the West plays fast and loose with international laws, conventions and agreements, besides dealing only death and destruction upon the hapless people of the Middle East and elsewhere.

We must use the evidence found so far to push for a new 9/11 investigation, which could include all the war crimes, and violations of international law. Why isn't there the public will to press for a new investigation, when all of these things even tie into the 2008 economic collapse? Perhaps it will take a revolution to bring justice! I for one would gladly go down fighting for the truth to win out, as would a few of my friends. For those of you reading this in other strategic countries, hopefully some of you will reach out to your politicians to ask them for an accounting of what has lead to this sham of a war on terror.

Go after the American big wig financial movers and shakers, making them unwanted in your particular country. The more financial pressure, and even divestment of these fat cats will go a long way in realizing the truth, and consequences of this ridiculous, and truly abominable road show that the CIA/Pentagon and NATO are really behind.


  1. An inspiring piece, go raibh míle maith agat Frank. The one thing I'd advise caution on is this looking to Vladimir Putin as some sort of pole to the neocon order. They are more likely all marching to the one tune. To fully understand all these things you are uncovering you need to look at the fiat monetary system and how the Petrodollar allows them to leverage and control the world economy. He who controls the money supply controls everything and it is here, from behind, where the puppet-masters lurk and carry forward their agenda. Check out a site called 'left hook' by Dean Henderson, he has uncovered many of the connections between Big Oil, the bankers and their manipulative power play in the Persian Gulf. On one other thing to which might interest you, look into the Italian Supreme Court Judge who has filed charges against Blair and Bush at the ICC. This same judge was involved in the uncovering of the original Gladio programme in Italy, all of which is fully documented and proven - even if it's never spoken of in the MSM

  2. Anthony,

    The question I would ask if you are merely a conspiracy theorist, why do your theories attract so much interest?,

    I could ask you the same question. It wasn't that long ago when you, your wife and Tommy Gorman were called conspiracy theorists when you both exposed the truth concerning the murder of Joe O Conor. or when I first came across The Blanket in the leafy suburbs of Paris in 2006 and read the thoughts of 'conspiracy theorists' like Brendan Hughes, Tommy McKearney, Tommy Gorman, yourself etc dispelling myths and seperating fact from fiction.

    Thats what Frank O' Brien done in his piece..Seperate fact from fiction. It wasn't the local Taliban armed with box cutters that brought down the WTC complex or crashed a plane kamikaze style in a field close to a Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    I will let the readers dwell on what Frank had to say....(I agree with him)

    The best podcast done so far by anyone on 9/11, bringing together the testimony of key witnesses to the behind the scenes events of that fateful day, is James Corbett " 9/11 Trillions: Follow the Money." . Corbett masterfully weaves together the testimony of Richard Grove, Indira Singh and others, showing the 'money trail,' which in any criminal investigation is one of the most important aspects

    You are probably right I am bonkers and nuts but as Waylon Jenning sang about in a song I've always been crazy, it helps me from going insane

    "I've always been crazy and the trouble that it's put me through
    I've been busted for things that I did, and I didn't do
    I can't say I'm proud of all of the things that I've done
    But I can say I've never intentionally hurt anyone"

  3. Frankie,

    if only we had been called conspiracy theorists and dismissed as such. It was much more sinister and uncomfortable.

    I think our view of things attracted interest not because we were believed initially but because open dissent was so rare in that world. Then it gained traction because the thing about The Blanket, what it predicted came to pass.

    The conspiracy theorists back then were those who blamed the securocrats on everything: from robbing the Northern bank to making up yarns about Bobby Tohill's kidnapping of Scap's treachery.

    There is no doubt that a lot of things out there are the result of hidden influences. The conspiracy theorist just does a poor job in joining the dots. Back when the Stalker inquiry was being launched the Brits, I have been told, activated conspiracy theorists to steal a march on Stalker: say what he would say but overegg it so that when his report eventually came out it would be discredited by the conspiracy theorists. How accurate that it I do not know but it has made me wonder just who conspiracy theorists serve. I can see how it would work.

    Why I don't regard you as a conspiracy theorist is that you never seem to mind people disagreeing with you; you don't rant and rave and scream abuse when your argument is challenged; you come back with evidence via links etc rather than abuse; you don't think that everybody who disagrees with you can't see the overarching picture that you see; and you don't suffer from delusions that you are smarter than everybody else. These are all characteristics of the conspiracy theorist, and you don't exhibit any of them.

    Not that I agree with you on what you write but that is hardly the point. Some arguments are fine, others are not. But that is the case with everybody. The comments section of a blog is where we allow people the space to develop their ideas rather than hold them to what they say forever and day. Unsworn testimony in a manner of speaking - write a piece for the blog and it is a bit different. That is more like a sworn statement.

    By now you a fully fledged Quiller!! And we are the better for it.

  4. Frankie - and while you don't always agree with us you have always had our back.

  5. Barry,
    If 9/11 was a staged event was Mohammed Atah and the other 18 hijackers mere bystanders then?

    Are you sure you want to go down the rabbit hole? If you do... Hijack 'suspects' alive and well. From a BBC report on Sunday, 23 September, 2001, There is serious doubts concerning at least half of the alledged hijackers..

    Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has turned up alive and well. The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now in doubt.

    A short while before 9/11 a radio host in America called Bill Cooper, told the world on the 28th June 2001 what was what about to unfold and he named who would be blamed for it. A few weeks later he got whacked.

    (Are still sure about going down the rabbit hole?)....

  6. Frankie,

    I'm with you, though I think the conspiracy was more on the ground. Look up "Project for a New American Century".

    It's not a conspiracy theory if they laid out the bloody plan of what they were going to do!

  7. Stevie,

    I know about PNAC (and the heads concerning it) Operation Northwoods which some American Generals wanted to carry out during the Cuban missle crisis is basically a blue print for 9/11.

    No one is going to make me buy into the 9/11 commission report. Reads like Widgery and bloody Sunday.

  8. Frankie

    The suspect that BBC news item of 23 Sept 2001 was just that - a suspect eliminated from enquiries.

    The names of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 are in the public domain. There is no corroboration for what Bill Cooper reported and for the reasons for his tragic demise. The supposed power of the Illuminati has been a staple of reactionary conspiracy theorists since the Enlightenment era.

    What you are trying to do is to join up unrelated dots and to subvert the laws of mathematics by adding two and two to make ten

    I have no problem with taking apart the post 9/11 War on Terror and the Project for a New American Century which preceded it as swell as the intelligence failures and lack of preparedness for 9/11. But the awful events of that day and responsibility for it (Saudi funded sexually repressed young Muslim men) are indisputable. It is Alex Jones's Info Wars operation that has spread this calumny as well as denial of the sandy Hook atrocity; for which they have been rightly and, not before time, removed from Facebook.

  9. Hello Barry,

    Welcome to the rabbit hole .............Let's start looking at some of what you said in a bit of detail.

    Saudi funded sexually repressed young Muslim men are indisputable.

    Can you back that claim up that they were sexually repressed with indisputable evidence. What I know is In September 2002, Robert Mueller told CNN twice that there is...

    " no legal proof to prove the identities of the suicidal hijackers. So, one fact is apparent. If those who hijacked the 9/11 airplanes were using stolen identities, then we don't know who they were or who they worked for. We can't. It's impossible"

    If the FBI say they have no idea who was behind it, how can you be so sure?

    What you are trying to do is to join up unrelated dots and to subvert the laws of mathematics by adding two and two to make ten

    Why don't you simply listen to what Robert Podolski (Physicist, Engineer) explain how the official fire story violates the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics. Maybe you could read what Dave Heller says and why he started to question the official narrative and why the pan cake theory doesn't satnd up. And in 2006 Steve Koucick and Joel Robbin had a look at what Heller said and using maths (all the equations can be found in Steve's and Joel's piece to fact check) confimed what Dave Heller said. There is a small python script in the piece that you or anyone can run. I checked it out on my machine ( kali linux) I simply opened a shell ran the script and the maths add up.

    Do you still want to go down the rabbit hole Barry or not?

  10. Barry,

    How far down the rabbit hole are you? How you expalin this live BBC report. telling the world WTC 7 had collasped when the building was still intact and wouldn't be pulled for at least another 20mins. In simple laymans terms and using history to back up my argument that an international branch of the taliban armed with box cutters and a Quran or three didn't do what you believe they did and 9/11 was a false flag and a prelude to war.........

    History tells me that Uncle Sam has used flase flags as a means to enter several major conflicts since the sinking of The Lusitania. They knew in advance of Pearl Harbour what was going to happen and some of the highest ranking Generals and Politicains of their day didn't care how many young 18, 19 and 20 year old Gi's would be murdered on 7th Dec. 1941.

    During the Bay of Pigs nonsense that almost brought about a nuclear war, the same type of leaders wanted to hijack planes killing everyone on board and using subsitute planes would crash them and both Cuba and Russia were going to get the blame (Operation Northwoods)...Next decade we have The Gulf of Tonkin Incident in 'Nam...In the 1980's the CIA flew drugs from Pablo Escobar into Arkansas to end up in the streets of LA to be sold by Free Way Rick Ross. When Gary Webb exposed what was happening and how drug money was funding the CIA in central America, he paid the ultimate price....In the run up to the first Gulf was in 1991 who can forget Nayirah telling the world on 10th Oct. 1990, how see witnessed Iraqi soilders entering a hospital and murdering at least 213 newly born children....

    Factoring all that in...give me one reason why 9/11 wasn't a prelude to go back to Iraq.....(we both know Gulf war 2 was based on lies about WMD's)

    Apart from being a false flag, it was an insurance job that made some wealthy Zionists even wealthier...
