Will America Learn the Lessons of Sept. 11?

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, November, 2001

Early on the morning of Sept. 11 five Middle Eastern men arrived at Boston’s Logan airport just before their flight to Los Angeles took off, and bought one-way tickets with cash. This was a set of circumstances that should have resulted in immediate detention but did not. Both in 1999 and in 2000, Arabs who were kept from boarding planes sued airlines for “racial profiling,” so at Logan no one dared stop what had every sign of being a hijack gang. The men went on to fly their plane into the World Trade Center in New York.

The events of Sept. 11 are the most spectacular consequence to date of two of the most self-destructive policies the United States has ever pursued: open immigration and the refusal to acknowledge group traits. Those five men should never have been let into the country, and they should have been profiled immediately as potential terrorists. With more than 6,000 Americans dead, billions in property damage, trillions in lost stock values, an airline industry on the brink of collapse, and the economy entering a recession, is there any chance our rulers have learned anything?

Immigration and National Security

One of the most obvious lessons begging to be learned is that diversity is not a strength. Even the most benighted liberals would be hard-pressed to state just what the United States has gained from seven million Muslims within its borders. And it is the presence of these seven million — many of them Middle Easterners — who gave the terrorists a plausible context here and permitted them to move from university to flight school to mosque to rent-a-car counter without attracting the slightest attention.

Some had been in the United States for several years, presumably imbibing the vapors that, we are told, can turn anyone into a happy member of the “first universal nation.” They were unaffected. They were true to their blood, true to their religion, true aliens in the profoundest sense. And it is clear that many Middle Easterners living in our midst share their convictions, if not (yet) their willingness to die for them.

Although authorities are not certain of the identities of all 19 hijackers, at least 15 and perhaps all entered the United States legally. They came on tourist, business, and even student visas. Mohammed Atta, the Egyptian said to have been the ring-leader, entered the country from Germany in June, 2000, on a student visa. The Germans already had their eye on him as a possible bomb-thrower, but the INS either didn’t know or didn’t care. During his years in the West, he adjusted to the point of downing five Stolichnaya vodkas four nights before the attack, but he was still determined to kill as many of us as possible.

Khalid Almidhar and Nawaf Alhazami showed up in San Diego in November 1999. They went in and out of the country at will, and started taking flying lessons in May, 2000. Hani Hanjour, a Saudi Arabian who probably piloted the plane that hit the Pentagon, had lived in the United States on and off since 1990. In 2000, he got a student visa to study English at a one-month program given by ELS Language Centers in Oakland, California. He used the visa to enter the country but never showed up for class. The ELS people didn’t get word from the INS that Mr. Hanjour had even gotten a visa, so they had no idea he was in the country. Even if they had told the INS their “student” was AWOL it would probably have done nothing; once someone is in the country legally, the INS doesn’t much care what he does. One year later, this now-illegal, overstay alien helped kill Americans.

It is not as if we weren’t warned. Eyad Ismoil, the man convicted of driving the truck full of explosives used to bomb the World Trade Center in 1993 was also in the country after overstaying his student visa.

And then there is Zacarias Moussaoui, a Moroccan Frenchman, who was arrested before the attacks, on August 17. He had been nosing around a Minnesota flight school, asking for simulator training on commercial jets. This was an odd request for someone who had never even soloed in a single-engine propeller plane. It was odder still that he said he didn’t care about taking off or landing; all he wanted to know was how to steer. The flight school people alerted the police, who picked him up on a visa violation. Even before Sept. 11, French authorities told us he was a suspected terrorist, but our security wizards didn’t put two and two together.

Some people think Mr. Moussaoui was the “20th hijacker.” Three of the flights were commandeered by five men but the fourth — which failed to hit its target and was probably downed when passengers swarmed the hijackers — had only four terrorists on board. Mr. Moussaoui has refused to talk.

Others have refused to talk. Ayub Ali Khan and Mohammed Azmath, both Muslims from India, got on a cross-country flight from Newark at about the same time the hijackers boarded their flights. After their plane was grounded in St. Louis, they were found with box cutters, hair dye, and $20,000 in cash. Were they part of a fifth team but got cold feet? Were they on a practice run for a later attack? They won’t say.

Ten of the hijackers did not come to America until July, just a few months before the attack. They were the muscle for the assaults, and spent their time lifting weights and practicing knife fighting. Many of them appear not to have spoken a word of English, but got visas and blended in just fine in multi-culti America.

The State Department manual for consular officers says not to issue visas to people who have planned or committed terrorist acts, but “mere membership” in a recognized terrorist group does not automatically disqualify a person, nor does “advocacy of terrorism.” As the National Commission on Terrorism reported last year, “In spite of elaborate immigration laws and the efforts of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the United States is, de facto, a country of open borders.”

The hijackers therefore got into the country with no trouble at all, and just overstayed their visas. Approximately 40 percent of our estimated 11 million illegals did the same thing: arrived legally and didn’t go home. The United States does not have a system for figuring out who hasn’t left when he should have. Failure to keep track of foreigners has now proven fatal.

Many of the foreigners who do go back, and who don’t kill any of us while they are here, should never have been let in either. The State Department says Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Sudan all sponsor terrorism. Nevertheless, during the five-year period between 1991 and 1996 we let in 10,000 of their nationals on student visas. One of these was an Iraqi who got a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering at Michigan State University and is now the top scientist in the Iraqi nuclear weapons program. Three of the Iranians have also gone home to work on nuclear weapons. What is the use of calling countries “terrorist states” and then teaching their citizens how to make A-bombs? Senator Dianne Feinstein of California argued at first for a six-month moratorium on student visas but later backed off, saying she would be satisfied with better ways to keep track of no-shows and overstays.

The country that sends the largest number of students to the United States is China. There were 54,000 Chinese in American Universities last year, and they were not studying music theory or history of film. The FBI reports that many physics and aeronautics students are outright spies, while others are happy to report back to Beijing on everything they learn. As FBI director Louis Freeh testified back in 1998, “some foreign students are then encouraged to seek employment with U.S. firms to steal proprietary information.” In the long run, educating Chinese is far more stupid and dangerous than educating Arabs (see book review, p. 9). China is a huge, racially homogeneous nuclear power with an ancient hunger for hegemony and an abiding hatred of the West (see book review, AR Feb., 2001, p. 7) It has the potential to make Osama bin Laden’s efforts against us look like harmless pranks. All our jabber about a “diverse society” and “one world” only makes us vulnerable to people who laugh at foolishness of that kind.

Nests of Support

The FBI is now in the process of trying to root out the network that made the events of Sept. 11 possible. One nest of support may have been in Laurel, Maryland, the home of Moataz Al-Hallak. He is a radical imam who once had a congregation in Arlington, Texas, but moved to Maryland. One of his Texas protégés, Wadih El-Hage, was convicted this year of helping bomb the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The imam was born in Syria, makes frequent trips to Arab countries, and is now a U.S. citizen. At least six of the 19 hijackers spent as much as several weeks just a few miles from Mr. Al-Hallak’s home, and the FBI wants to know how friendly they were. How did this America-hater become a U.S. citizen?

Jersey City, New Jersey, is another cozy roost for terrorists. Just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, it has one of the largest Arab populations of any city in America, and was the base for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian cleric who has a mosque in Jersey City, was convicted in 1995 of masterminding the attack. He was known for Khomeini-style sermons blasting the United States. What was he doing living here, teaching Arabs to hate us? Perhaps it was some of his followers who were detained and questioned after they held roof-top tailgate-style parties where they cheered and whooped as they watched the World Trade Center burn. The FBI is already holding a score of Jersey City Arabs, and is looking into whatever support they may have provided the hijackers.

The hijackers who took off from Dulles Airport took advantage of a different kind of immigrant network that let them get Virginia driver’s licenses even though they were not residents. An American applicant has to show a Virginia lease or utility bill in his own name to prove residency, but the state waives that requirement for “refugees.” They get by with a notarized residency form cosigned by a state resident, and an identity form cosigned by a lawyer. There is a brisk trade in bogus forms of this kind, and Herbert Villalobos is being held for dummying up papers for the hijackers. He was probably not in on the plot, but was uncovered only because he served the wrong customers.

In fact, the FBI says it has known for several years about four or five bin Laden groups (al Qaeda cells) operating in the United States. Each cell has fewer than a dozen members, and although authorities have been eyeing them, they came here legally and have not committed any known crimes. The FBI thinks they lie low, gather intelligence, support active terrorists, and wait for a good opportunity to swing into action.

Another purpose of these “sleeper” cells seems to be to make enough money to keep from draining the al Qaeda treasury. “Cells live off the land,” says Jonathan Winer, a former State Department security official. “Once they’ve gotten seed money, they have to be self-sufficient.” Some of these groups, which are probably operating in more than a dozen countries around the world, also benefit from a network of wealthy Muslims in the United States, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, who feed money to them through Islamic charities. So far, the FBI has found no connection between these cells and the Sept. 11 attacks.

Just as the hijackers looked into flying crop dusters, some of these lurkers got special permits to haul dangerous chemicals. Nabil Almarabh, a former Boston cab driver with ties to Mr. bin Laden, has a Michigan permit to haul hazardous waste, and an investigation found 20 more people who had gotten such permits by fraud. No doubt, the plan was to dump a truck load of dioxins into the water supply somewhere. Such are the charming neighbors our “diverse” society thoughtfully imports for our edification from all over the world.

Most of those who would like to kill us have no doubt kept their thoughts to themselves. Not so Abdou Larabou Moussa, originally from the Muslim country of Niger, who came to work after the attacks, celebrating loudly. He taunted his colleagues at Kay Chemical in Greensboro, North Carolina, and showed up the next day in military fatigues still gloating. “It was incredibly inappropriate,” appears to be the extent of outrage mustered by a company vice president, who nevertheless reports Mr. Moussa has been fired.

Likewise imprudent were three Middle Easterners who were seen cheering and jumping for joy in the Meadowlands area of New Jersey after the attack. They were found to be illegals, and now face deportation.

The British paper The Guardian had no trouble tracking down “Americans” who feel the same way. “The only take you can have on it as a Muslim,” says 14-year-old Mohamed Aissaoui, in the idiomatic language of the Brooklyn-born. “You’re a Muslim first and American second,” he explains. “If they [the terrorists] were doing it for a good cause,” says this citizen of the United States and fine example of diversity, “then God bless them.”

Some apparently peaceable foreigners here legally have decided to go home, now that terror has come to America. “We came here looking for economic security and to build professional careers,” says Mariana Bruzzone who moved from Argentina to Miami. Now she and her boyfriend have bought tickets for Buenos Aires. Mahmoud Farahat, an Egyptian who recently graduated from the University of Miami, may also go home. The attack “ends the whole idea of America as a free country, where people from everywhere are supposed to go,” he says, as if he should know. Rodolfo Araujo is a Colombian radiologist who has lived in America for 38 years. Now, he has decided to go back to Columbia when he retires — despite a civil war that kills thousands every year. Other fair-weather Americans are no doubt clearing out, too.

In Hong Kong, visa applications have dropped by 70 percent since the bombing; pretending to be an American doesn’t seem worth the bother anymore. Not surprisingly, visa requests remain unaffected in the world’s most wretched countries. Ghanaians and Chadians still want to come to America despite the killings.

Mexicans appear to be happy to see America bloodied. Ana Maria Salazar is a Mexican-American who was a high-ranking defense official in the Clinton administration and now teaches at the Autonomous Technological Institute of Mexico. After the attack, she told her students that if Mexico really wants to be treated as an equal partner it must stand with America against terror. The students remained silent. But when another professor said the United States was a bully and did not deserve Mexican support, they burst into sustained applause. In September, Australian national radio reported that Mexicans were happily buying up T-shirts that say “Osama bin Laden is my hero,” and that rubber masks of the terrorist leader were selling well.

President Vicente Fox has been trying to cut a dashing figure on the world stage, and has been lobbying for a seat on the U.N. Security Council. In keeping with this role, he wants Mexico to give America high-profile support but his countrymen are having none of it. They equate applauding America with subservience. The newspaper Reforma drew up a scorecard of how supportive different countries have been of the United States. Mexico tied with China for next-to-last, just ahead of Iraq and Cuba.

There have been few reports on how Mexicans already in the country reacted to the terror, but at least one student at the overwhelmingly-Mexican Century High School in Santa Ana, California, appears mainly to have been bored. “I’m tired of hearing about this already,” said Joanna Guadard of the attacks, disappointed that her usual television programs were temporarily off the air.

And, indeed, when the House of Representatives voted after the attacks to authorize use of the military to help stop drugs and terrorists at the border, Hispanics were prominent in the opposition. As Rep. Silvestre Reves, Democrat of Texas, explained, “We are a country if immigrants, where civil rights are protected, so we must continue to make sure that actions are not taken which are contrary to these principles.” Heidi Storsberg, a federal legislator in Mexico City agrees: “We are very worried about the possible militarization of the U.S.-Mexican border and the eventual spread of nationalistic, xenophobic and racist sentiments.” Fernando Garcia of the Border Network for Human Rights in El Paso explains that any anti-immigrant sentiment on account of the attacks is just racism.

European Connection

Muslim immigration has made Europe a congenial home for terrorists, just as it has the United States. The German city of Hamburg is a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism, and several of our hijackers spent time there. Mohammed Atta studied engineering there in the 1990s, and is reported to have converted to radical Islam during that period. It is now thought likely that the whole Sept. 11 mission was originally planned in Hamburg. German authorities say there are as many as 30 Islamic terrorist cells in the country, and that out of 3.1 million Muslims some 3,250 are “potential extremists.”

Since the attack, possible accomplices have been arrested in Holland, Spain, and Belgium. In Madrid, police collared six Algerians with night vision goggles and state-of-the art forging equipment that could be used to make anything from passports to airplane tickets. One of the men was keeping a diary of his thoughts as an aspiring suicide bomber.

On Sept. 13 in Belgium, police arrested two suspected terrorists, one Tunisian-born, and the other Moroccan. One week later police searched the tiny Egyptian restaurant the two operated in the heart of Brussels’ large Muslim district. They found 220 pounds of sulfur and 13 gallons of acetone — the ingredients used in the homemade bombs that destroyed two American embassies in East Africa. Authorities think the materials were to be used to blow up NATO headquarters or perhaps the American embassy in Paris.

Britain, with its large Muslim population and loose border controls, is a Mecca for terrorists. Scotland Yard now believes 11 of the 19 hijackers traveled to England during the year, and that five of them attended an important strategy session there in June. British police say Lotfi Raissi, an Algerian flight instructor based in London, gave four of the hijackers flying lessons. The United States is seeking his extradition for conspiracy to commit murder.

London-based Islamic leader Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed has rejoiced in the attacks and publicly instructed Muslims to kill anyone — including Muslims — who helps non-Muslims in any military action against Muslims. He has even issued a fatwa, or Islamic death order, against Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf because Pakistan has reluctantly agreed to join the “war on terrorism.”

Likewise in London, a 24-year-old Muslim named Mohammed Jameel claims to run a military-style training school for militants. He recruits young men at mosques and shows them videos of camps in Afghanistan where men train to fight “un-Islamic” regimes like those of Britain, the United States, and Israel. Mr. Jameel says he has sent hundreds of young British Muslims to fight in Afghanistan and Chechnya.

It is worth noting that the enterprising Mr. Jameel is British born and bred. For many Arabs, an entire lifetime in the West only encourages them to hate us. Raed Hijazi, born and educated in California, is a good example. He became radicalized through contacts at the Islamic Assistance Organization in Sacramento, and traveled to Afghanistan where he trained at al Qaeda bases. Able to move freely around the world on his U.S. passport, he ended up in Amman, Jordan, where he took part in a plot to blow up American and Israeli tourists in a millennium attack that was supposed to kill thousands on Jan. 1, 2000. Today, this U.S. citizen is in a Jordanian prison, after being arrested along with 26 accomplices, and faces a possible death sentence.

Kahlil Deek, also a U.S. citizen, was in on the plot too. His job was to review the targets, including a fully-booked Radisson hotel. The Jordanians nabbed him as well, but are not sure they have completely wiped out this terror cell. There is little doubt there are plenty of “Americans” who feel just as our fellow-citizens Mr. Deek and Mr. Hijazi do, but have not yet gone into action.

So, what is the country going to do about all this? At first the Justice Department asked for authority to lock up foreigners thought to be terrorists, and deport them without presenting evidence. The law would apply not only to visitors but to legal residents with green cards, and asylees, who can’t now be deported. Later, Attorney General John Ashcroft had second thoughts and withdrew this plan. Now he is asking for the right to use foreign intercepts of Americans’ communications abroad. At present there are Fourth Amendment limits on wiretaps, and U.S. authorities cannot use evidence from other countries that would be illegal if gathered by American surveillance.

The INS already has the right to lock up illegals indefinitely if there are “extraordinary circumstances,” and by October 5, it had rounded up 156 people on immigration charges. It is convenient to be able to hold on to illegals, but illegals shouldn’t be here in the first place. In the same period, the Justice Department had arrested more than 400 other people, whom it was holding without bail on minor offenses like traffic violations and misdemeanors. Most of them were not likely to be charged with helping the terrorists, but the FBI wanted to keep them handy. Legal specialists said it was unprecedented that such a large number of people be held in that manner, but judges allow this under special circumstances.

Some people think we need a national ID card. President Bush is reportedly horrified at the idea, but does not rule it out completely. A number of European countries have them. In France, anyone without a passport or carte d’identité can be hauled in for questioning. The British are likely to start issuing them, too. In a poll taken after the Sept. 11 attack, 85 percent of Brits say they like the idea. No fewer than 70 percent of Americans do, too. Chairman Larry Ellison of the database company Oracle says he would donate the software needed for ID cards.

What no one seems to be talking about are the most obvious steps of all: secure the borders, eliminate birth-right citizenship, and kick out anyone who fits the terrorist profile. As things stand today, Osama bin Laden and 12 pregnant wives could sneak across the porous Mexican border and he could become the father of 12 new American citizens. It is hard to think of a system better designed to destroy itself. The other obvious step is to throw out all illegals. We don’t even need new laws for that. Another obvious step is to grant visas with much greater care, and to set up a system to track foreigners still here after their visas run out.

If the United States had properly guarded borders and did not hand out citizenship like candy, there would be no need for the inspections, intrusions, delays, eavesdropping, and harassment officials say are now necessary for our security. Not all that long ago, when Americans were either white or Negro, a Saudi hijacker would have been conspicuous.

The other obvious thing people are talking about, but mostly saying the wrong things, is racial profiling. This should be used routinely both domestically and at our borders. Citizens of the European Union do not need visas to come to America, but there are now millions of Arabs, Pakistanis, Turks, Indians, etc. who are EU citizens. If they show up waving European passports, we should treat them exactly as we would Arabs, Turks, etc. There are phony, white-hating Europeans just as there are phony, white-hating Americans, and it is dangerous to pretend otherwise.

Unfortunately, the perpetrators of the next act of mass terror are probably already here. Carrier groups in the Persian Gulf won’t stop them. Airport security checks won’t stop them either, if they decide to go low-tech and machine- gun Penn Station or Yankee Stadium. It’s tough for the ones who mean well, but we should throw out every young foreign man known to be a devout Muslim. Foreigners are in this country at our pleasure, and if they displease us, out they go.

Nothing as sensible as this will happen, of course, until more Americans are dead. Attorney General John Ashcroft has been promising that the war on terrorism will be fought “with a total commitment to protect the rights, the constitutional rights and the privacy of all Americans.” This is another way of saying no racial profiling — at least not officially. President Bush went out of his way to visit an Islamic center just a few days after the attack, and tell us how wonderful Muslims are.

As a practical matter, there will be plenty of racial profiling. Several commercial pilots have already tossed passengers off their planes for no other reason than other passengers thought they looked dangerous. The FBI has asked for the confidential records of thousands of foreign students, particularly those with Middle Eastern names. And now that the word has gone out to companies that haul hazardous materials or dust crops to be on the look out for suspicious characters, does anyone think they are going to give Norwegians or Southerners or Englishmen special scrutiny?

A few days after the attack, the San Jose International Airport piously announced its security measures “will be the same for any human being,” but the murder of 6,000 Americans seems to have knocked a glimmer of good sense into at least a few people. In a Sept. 22 article, the New York Times had no trouble finding blacks who said Arabs spook them these days. “Yes, I’d be aware of them, I’d be nervous,” says Ron Arnold, who adds, “I’ve been racially profiled all my life.” Not surprisingly, although blacks have been complaining for years about racial profiling, they are the most eager to profile Middle Easterners. According a Gallup Poll, 71 percent said Arabs — citizens or not — should get greater scrutiny at airports. Only 57 percent of whites thought so, which means 43 percent have been so brainwashed they think we have to be as suspicious of grandmothers as of tough-looking young Arabs.

Needless to say, jumped-up Arab spokesmen have started lecturing us on the deeper meaning of America. Profiling would just not be “what this country is all about,” says Nadeem Salem of the Association of Arab-Americans in Toledo, Ohio. Yaser Bushnaq, president of another Arab group called Solidarity US, says the current investigation is nothing more than harassment of Arabs, and has advised fellow Muslims they have the right to refuse to talk to the FBI.

It is true that there has been some unnecessarily aggressive profiling, but not by the authorities. The best known is the case of Balbir Singh Sodhi, a turbaned Sikh killed by someone who thought he was shooting an Arab. There have been scattered reports of revenge attacks all around the country: people have tried to set fire to a mosque in Seattle, run over a Pakistani woman in Huntington, New York, and shoot a Moroccan gas station attendant in Palos Heights, Illinois. In London, thugs reportedly stomped on an Afghani taxi driver paralyzing him. There have also been nasty exhortations on the Internet to kill all Muslims.

The boneheads will always be with us, but there are boneheads on both sides. At a private Muslim school in Garden Grove, California, called Orange Crescent, the principal told his students their phone lines are probably being tapped. Teachers encourage the view there is no proof Muslims were involved in the attack. “There are people out there who just hate Muslims,” explains the principal.

And in Saudi Arabia, our ally in the war on terrorism, citizens are doing their own profiling. Anti-white sentiments are palpable, and expatriates are keeping indoors. Those who go out may be spat on or have stones thrown at them. Many white women feel so uncomfortable they are leaving the country. One European reports that where he works, Saudis were so happy the day after the attack, they were hugging and kissing each other.

Lessons, anyone?

The British have promised to streamline extradition proceedings, and have tumbled to the view they should not grant asylum to anyone suspected or convicted of terrorism. The Dutch, paragons of sheep-to-the-slaughter “multi-culturalism,” are beginning to wake up. Agence France Press reported on Oct. 3 that anti-foreigner remarks, which were absolutely taboo before Sept. 11, are now common, and that even a few politicians are openly doubting the success of multi-racialism. In the three weeks after the attack there were 90 reported incidents of mostly verbal abuse of Muslims, an unheard of figure in ordinary times. A poll found that more than two thirds of the Dutch say they think any Muslim who approved of the attacks should be kicked out of the country. “Democratic” Holland will no doubt fail to act on the wishes of its people, but it is encouraging to see a little spine among the supine. Similar sentiments are no doubt sweeping France, Germany, and Italy.

In the United States, there have already been a few small, welcome changes. Less than a week before the attack, George Bush was telling the world the United States has “no more important relationship in the world than the one we have with Mexico.” He doesn’t seem to have much time for his amigo Vicente these days, and the chatter about amnesty for Mexican illegals has stopped.

The day before the attack, former President William Clinton was in Australia imparting wisdom to a select group of 35 business leaders. His theme was that Australia must remain open to immigrants and cultivate diversity. “The President believes the world will be a better place if all borders are eliminated,” reported Tom Hogan, president of Vignette Corporation and host of the gathering. Mr. Clinton might not sing the same song today.

Likewise, Jesse Jackson is too busy pretending the Taliban invited him to come mediate the crisis to have gotten very far with what was supposed to be his number one post-Durban conference priority: reparations for slavery. Hillary Clinton is thankfully out of the news, and what were once boomed as burning issues — whether to let people sue HMOs and if old people should get free drugs — have faded into the insignificance they deserve.

The more important lessons, however, are likely to be lost. To the already undeceived, the events of Sept. 11 are the most powerful and dramatic proofs yet of the bankruptcy of any number of fashionable myths, but the willfully blind will find ways to stay that way.

First, race and nationality are crucially important. Every one of the 19 terrorists was clearly and obviously Middle Eastern. The attackers, and those picked up around the world in the wake of the attack, have been Saudis, Egyptians, Algerians, Tunisians, and Moroccans. All are Muslims. What is more, years of residency in the West, and even European or American citizenship have proven to be no impediment to murderous hatred of America. Mohammed Atta and several others were radicalized while living in the West. The attacks have also uncovered American- and British-born Arabs — citizens — who hate America just as intensely as Iraqis or Palestinians who live under the threat of American-made bombs. There could be no clearer evidence for the persistence of racial, ethnic, and religious loyalty. For these people, as for millions of other non-whites who live among whites, the idea of assimilation is a huge joke.

Second, the United States must protect itself against aliens. It is now like a man without a skin, open to infection at any time. And it is the height of folly to pretend that all foreigners are equally likely to want to kill us. So far, the only foreigners who have shown themselves to be intent on murder have been Arabs. Now that American troops are killing Muslims, does anyone believe the revenge killings that will surely come will be the work of Argentines or Australians?

Whatever Ben Wattenberg or William Clinton may say, we live in separate camps divided by race, religion, language, and culture. It is true that we have had our own home-grown mass-murderer, Timothy McVeigh, but he represents a purely domestic, purely American phenomenon. We can be completely confident that people of our own camp — whites — will not slip into our country and try to kill us.

Once again, it will probably take several thousand more dead Americans, killed at the hands of Middle Easterners, before our country officially wakes up to the obvious: that Arabs — like all foreigners — have no right to come here. Once they are here, they do no discernible good and much harm. The obvious response is to keep them out and send home the ones who are here.

Apparently it takes murderous outrage for brainwashed Americans finally to realize “diversity” may not be so grand after all. If, because of these terrible attacks, the country manages to turn a calculating eye on the costs and benefits of playing host to millions of Arabs, the red-ink dead-loss bottom line should raise questions about other groups. What earthly good do Cambodians, Nigerians, Guatemalans, Haitians, and all the rest of them do the country?

In the longer term, what do these attacks say about the presence of Mexicans in our midst? Is it impossible to imagine a sharp diplomatic or economic conflict with Mexico after which we wake up to find millions of “fellow Americans” at our throats? It is probably already too late for the United States to assert robust national interests against Mexico without starting an insurrection. Even without an international crisis, Mexican irredentists and American-born reconquistadors are scheming to take over the Southwest. Who is to say their efforts to rid the area of whites will not some day include bombing and mass murder? Mexican terror will be infinitely more difficult to track and contain than Arab terror.

In the nearer term, we could even let this war on terrorism become an occasion to let in even more potential terrorists. Wherever we make war — Vietnam, Iraq, Somalia, the Balkans — we create refugees, and some of them always end up here. What will happen after we have backed the ethnic-Tajik Northern Alliance in a takeover of Afghanistan, and they are later expelled by non-Taliban Pashtuns? As they always do, our defeated “allies” will come knocking at our door. There are already two million Afghan refugees in Pakistan alone. How many of them will eventually contribute to our sacred “diversity”?

Our rulers do not yet understand what is really at stake when liberal mantras govern race and immigration policy. However, with typical exaggeration, commentators keep telling us Sept. 11 has “changed everything.” Let us hope that one of the things that begins to change is the suicidal mentality that refuses to admit the persistence of racial and national loyalty in a world in which only whites have stripped themselves of collective defenses.

    As I listen to the news this morning the “vibes” seem to be that America is both running scared and even just waiting for something to happen. This is combined with a seeming lack of real leadership on just what to do! BHO has ordered security to be doubled, not terribly original.

    My opinion on what should have been done following 9/11:

    1, Pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran’s nuclear facility.

    2, One or two selected nuclear strikes on any known Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan/North West Pakistan.

    3, Intern/deport ALL Muslims in the USA as potential enemy aliens. (They did it to Japanese in WW2)

    4, Fix up the fence with Mexico and get the cooperation of Canada about keeping illegals out of the USA.

    This would have solved the terror threat within about 2 weeks. The present “war on terror” has done nothing to stop terrorism and caused the pointless loss of too many American, British and Australian soldiers lives in Iraq & Afghanistan.

    While I believe that 9/11 was a false flag–an inside job–that does not mean that I don’t consider Islam to be a threat.

    There are so many holes in the government’s “conspiracy theory,” such as how WTC 7 collapsed–and it wasn’t even on fire.

    It just sounds to me that if you believe that Islam is a threat, you automatically have to believe that Muslims pulled off 9/11, and vice-versa. If you believe A, you must believe B.

    I believe A but not B.

  • Question Diversity

    In ten years, we have our definitive answer:

    No, we have not.

    We have let hundreds of thousands of Muslims originating from suspect countries and lands legally immigrate into the United States since 9/11.

    Much less actually deporting anyone.

    Our answer is to let black TSA affirmative action employees all-but-rape white teenage girls and elderly women.

    I’ll channel the regular poster Jupiter, and conclude with this: If the 1965 immigration reform act doesn’t happen, 9/11 doesn’t happen. Simple as that.

  • Sincerely Concerned

    The article saddens me in many ways. But mostly because it was written nearly 10 years ago and we’ve done nothing truly substansive to correct or prevent the real threat. But a comments saddens me more: that someone and many people, for that matter, believe it was an inside job. WTC 7 may have fallen because of internal and foundational damage. When you shake any building’s foundations it will fall. I am so tired of conspiracy theorists’ sad opinions. I don’t care what you want to get into (meaning, getting into war with Iraq/Afghanistan, and for what? Dead soldiers and NO OIL)–nobody kills 3,000 of its own civilians in office buildings in their own country and thinks they can even do it, much less get away with it. I don’t trust the U.S. government but I will never believe it was an inside job. Call me stubborn if you want.

    Alexandra, I’m with you. I believe Muslims are a threat, but I’m not so sure Muslims pulled off the attacks all by themselves.

    I agree that WTC 7 is strange, but my biggest problem is with the fact that there were hardly any passengers on the planes. As someone who travelled for a living I was on the road a good 48 weeks out of the year. As a matter of fact, I was travelling back and forth to California twice a month when 9/11 happened. The planes were always packed. I don’t care if you were going to Mobile, Alabama or across country to LA, the planes were packed.

    I remember the day after 9/11 when the airheads on the news channels were talking about how the planes only had 40 or so passengers on them. As soon as I heard it I looked at my husband and said, “That’s not possible.”

    Ten years later I’m still waiting for an explanation.

    My opinion on what should have been done following 9/11:

    1, Pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran’s nuclear facility.

    2, One or two selected nuclear strikes on any known Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan/North West Pakistan.

    This has been my sentiments for ten years. Our failure to retaliate against Islam with atomic explosives revealed the truth America has always denied. Cowardice!

    I can’t stand foreigners as much as the next guy, but Comment #1 on this article is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. That kind of backwoods speech was prevelant in the months after 911 and it makes us look stupid. Thankfully, it is from an Australian this time and they already look foolish on their own. To say ‘Just Nuke Em’ (in a hillbilly accent) shows that this guy has never seen a war and has no understanding of what a nuclear weapon detonation means to mankind and the planet as it sets off a chain of reaction in our global economy that would cause an implosion. It would destroy us all and our way of life would never recover, forever. Not too smart buddy.

    Mr Taylor wrote that “Foreigners are here at our pleasure…”

    This is so glaringly obvious. Every liberal, multiculturalist white person would surely hold that they would be the GUESTS of any country they dwelt in, or visited.

    They would practically apologize for just being white in said countries.

    Yet , try to tell them that reciprocity (foreigners being guest at our pleasure here) is only fair, right and rational, and they go ballistic.

    Why is this?

    How is this?

    The warpage of the Liberal mind stupefies me.

  • highduke

    The REAL lesson of 911 is to not allow Middle Easterners to control your money & oil or they will manipulate public opinion by orchestrating disaster at your expense and blame it on their enemy as they convince you that their enemy is yours’ too. In the case of 911 the enemy was anti-Israel anti-Saud Arab Nationalists Saddam and eventually Gadhafi. Add to that the demise of secular pro-Israel anti-Saud Arab Nationalits in the rest of the region and you can see clearly who screwed over who.

  • Kenelm Digby

    In the months before 9/11, the late, unlamented Bob Bartley (editor of the WSJ), used to pompously exclaim that a new amendment be added to the US Constitution “There Shall Be No Borders” – the moron loved to scream in mock, pseudo bombastic 18th century King James language.

    The irony was that the fruit of the jerks political posturings poured itself all over the WSJ building.

    No it wouldn’t. Using the type of atomic bombs used during WW II would not end all life on earth. Isn’t Nagasaki thriving city today? As for the economic disruption, even that would be temporary, as long as we didn’t let the war escalate. That could be accomplished by letting the Chinese and Pakistanis know that we would have no qualms about nuking them and that an all-out nuclear war would be unwinnable, even if WE lost so would they.

    Besides, the current economic model isn’t working so well.

  • Question Diversity

    9/11 theories — I think the truth is somewhere in between “government false flag operation” and the “official story.” If I had to bet, I would bet on CIA/NSA treachery, something along the lines of they saw it coming, but held back on informing the proper authorities and only informed the people who had some potential for financial gain by 9/11 happening like it ultimately did. Even if that’s not the precise truth, then at the very least, the CIA and NSA were blatantly incompetent, which makes all the extravagant sums of money we spend on those agencies, both on and off budget, a big waste.

    Either way, if I were ever elected President, my first order of business on January 21 would be to fire everyone in the CIA and NSA, (my PATCO moment), close down those agencies, and cite them as collectively responsible for 9/11 happening. My message to the country would be that we tried it their way for decades, and their way failed in our damned hour of need. So now we’re going to do things my way — No Muslim immigration, deportation of Muslims, and ubiquitous racial-religious profiling. Not to mention no long-standing foreign occupations of the Middle East.

  • SNAviatrix

    Let’s face the facts. 90% of 9/11 conspiracy theorists are leftists (many of them anti-White Black Panther or La Raza types) who only jumped on the “inside job” bandwagon because a Republican administration was in office. If Al Gore had won the 2000 election and been president on 9/11, those same 90% would be the biggest flag-waving cheerleaders for Gore’s version of the Patriot Act (yes, there would have been one, and it probably would have been more anti-White than the current one) and you all know it.

    I know that Amren’s conspiracy theorists don’t fall into those leftist traps (though they may fall into other traps) but still, if your allies are leftists, maybe it’s time to rethink your alliances. The U.S. has been burned by “allies” who turned into enemies again and again, from Stalin to China to the Afghan mujahideen to Pakistan to the Libyan “rebels”, many of whom have al-Qaeda ties, that Obama is now stupidly backing.

    In fact, we’ve already been burned when left-wing so-called “civil liberties” activists suddenly stopped having a problem with the Patriot Act, wiretapping, expansion of federal government powers, etc. as soon as Bush stepped out of office and Obama stepped in. Dissent used to be patriotic, now it’s just evil and racist, dontcha know?

  • Comment from Australia

    Reply to O’Malley # 8. Perhaps my response did sound like Backwoods Rhetoric but remember it has often been said that these ME terrorists have only just “come down from the trees”

    I do deplore violence and war, my family left Europe to get away from the wars which that continent had gone through, my grandfather served & fought in the tranches in WW1, he often told me of those horrors. Young friends served in Viet-Nam and had their lives destroyed.

    9/11 Was Evil, Horrendously evil. Just imagine, say, your daughter, an office worker being burnt to death with aviation fuel, or suffocating under building rubble, not very nice. As such I feel a very quick decisive response should have followed this outrageous unprovoked attack on your country. The world would not have imploded with 3 carefully targeted nuclear strikes.

    What have we (Oz is in this also) done about it? We have been involved in 10 years of apologies to, and appeasement of Islam and 10 years of long, costly and ineffective ground fighting in the Middle East. Hasn’t solved a thing.

    As for “Fase Flag” comments: Yes, there do seem to be a lot of unanswered questions, but again, from a distance it seems like one of the main problems was that the FBI & CIA had not been talking to each other.

    As for the original AmRen article, very thoughtful and well written.

  • Anonymous

    One hates to speak ill of the dead, but here are my thoughts ten years after 9/11/01. Except Todd Beemer and some unnamed others, not ONE man challenged these hijackers who were armed with box cutters, not guns, but BOX CUTTERS…They sat in their seats and died without so much as a peep….Couldn’t one of the men on board at least thrown a pot of hot coffee at one of the hijackers? This is the result of de-masculating white boys. Any white boy in school that shows any hint of standing up for themselves, others, or having any gender pride or the ability to think for themselves against the leftist/feminist programming is weeded out long before graduating from high school.

  • BAW

    What strikes me is that there was tremendous political capital after 9/11 that was wasted. Here are just a few things that we should have done, and could have, and would have been successful, given that public support was riding high, but didn’t:

    We should have implemented severe immigration restrictions on both illegal and legal immigration, up to and including a 10-year moratorium on ALL immigration.

    We should have used decisive retaliatory military action on 9/12, up to and including nuclear strikes on any Islamic country complicit. Never mind “regime change” and “building democracy”…it should have been about cold, calculated revenge…to cause equal or greater death and destruction.

    We should have embarked on a new Manhattan Project to create synthetic fuels to decrease our dependence on foreign oil. We should have also enacted steep tariffs on Middle Eastern oil to provide the necessary incentive to use synthetic fuels. (There exists a proven process to convert coal and natural gas to a liquid fuel that cars, trucks, trains, planes, etc. can use).

    We should have gotten rid of the PC nonsense that softened our military and intelligence community at the end of the Cold War.

    We should have made it crystal clear that any immigrant is in this country as a guest at our pleasure and if they displease us, they will be deported.

    We should have pulled our troops out of foreign bases and stationed them on our borders.

    What will it take for us to do these things? Tell me, what?

    Will America Learn the Lessons of Sept. 11?

    Gonna have to go with a big NO! on that one. We still have muslims in our country, we still import thousands of black Somali muslims every year, we STILL allow unrestricted entry of muslims into America every day and still kissing muslims 10 years after 9-11. It will not stop, even another massive devastating attack as 9-11 will not wake multiculti Americans. Only loved ones being killed in these attacks wakes up those Americans who have loved ones killed apparently and NOT ALL OF THOSE!!!! See the 9-11 families that think the Park51 project should go ahead as memorial to their murdered loved ones. The Christian god is NOT a loving god, but a vengeful one and human Christians are NOT doing what he wants them to do, that would be to destroy islam and muslims, that false god and false idol thing and no other god before him! Christians should wake up or they WILL be destroyed. BOTH cheeks have been turned, NOW strike back!

    Yes. The government’s case is certainly more credible and compelling than those nutty conspiracy theorists, 90% of whom are lefties. Who do they think they are challenging the government and media’s official version of 9/11! Don’t they know the government would never lie to us?

    9/11 couldn’t possibly be anything but what the government tells us. Better for us to go along with the implementation of a domestic police state to root out “homegrown” terrorists and give up any Constitutional rights we might have left and continue to participate in Middle Eastern Wars that have already taken 6,400 American lives and a trillion dollars, with no end in sight.

    Don’t even think of listening to the 1300 architects and structural engineers, metallurgists, demolition experts, physicists with Ph.Ds, expert pilots and nano- chemists who challenge the government’s theories found. Those guys are all kooks. The media are the REAL experts in those fields.

    Ignore the thermite found in the dust samples from the WTC towers, ignore physicists who say the official explanation is inconsistent with known laws of physics, pay no attention to structural engineers or demolition experts who say the videos show that the buildings are blowing up, not falling down, disregard the expert pilots who testify that poorly-qualified pilots cannot fly large commercial jets in such maneuvers.

    The government and media tell us that questioning 9/11 is inappropriate because it insults the families and memories of those killed in the attacks. We must honor the governmedia’s request.

    The events of Sept. 11 are the most spectacular consequence to date of two of the most self-destructive policies the United States has ever pursued: open immigration and the refusal to acknowledge group traits.

    You left one out, Mr. Taylor: US government meddling in Islamic homelands and the backing of Mideast tyrants.

    The answer is no. All you need to know is this:9/11 never would have occured if nation-destroying-White Variety-1965 Immigration Refrom Act had not been passed and if America had a National Origins Immigration Policy that completely excluded Muslims…the probability of 9/11 happening would have been 0….and the probability of the Fort Hood Shooting occuring would have been 0.

    Our government says the Muslim terrorists did this to us. Yet our same government brought in MILLIONS of muslims (immigrants) AFTER the fact. Then they say Islam is a peaceful religion. WHY?

    Our government leaves our border wide open for years now and does nothing to stop illegals and their drug cartels (the Zetas, etc) from entering and setting up shop. So the drugs/vicious gangs can flow more freely across the border? They will soon “legalize” all these invaders. WHY?

    Our government brought us the anti-White “hate crime” law. Our government shipped our jobs overseas. Our government will not allow us to drill for oil on our own land or off shore. WHY?

    Our government murdered it’s own people, (Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc) and got away with it. Ask James Traficant about our government.

    The Israelis got away with the USS Liberty massacre with the help of Lyndon Johnson and our “government”. Our government flooded our land DELIBERATELY with tens of millions of nonwhite “immigrants”. Our government celebrates MLK KNOWING he was a fraud and a cheat.

The first comment says that we should just bomb everyone into kingdom come (forgetting that nonwhites also have nuclear weapons) and the second comment claims it was an “inside job” (forgetting that the last thing our pro-multicult government would want to do is pull off a caper like 9/11 and make it look like nonwhites were to blame). When we can’t even agree on the lessons to be learned from this whole affair, how can we expect the general public to have any kind of meaningful take-away from it?

    After being blasted and inundated with 9/11 remembrances today, I though of what Congressman Ron Paul and others have been telling us for years: Muslims hate us because we constantly attack and bomb their people in far-off corners of the world without letup.

    But in the 10 years since 9/11:

    In Afghanistan, our forces are now ‘trained on the sanctity of the holy book (the Koran) and go to significant steps to protect it,’ as the official International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) website reported last year.

    ‘Never talk badly about the Qu’ran or its contents,’ ISAF ordered troops earlier this year [italics added].

    Since when did Uncle Sam incorporate Islamic law into military protocols? Since 9/11.

    –Diana West, Thank You America, for the Golden Age of Islam

    First, let me answer the question by saying as a Nation, we never learn our lesson.

    BAW #17 — You make several valid points. I ask this: What did the Germans use to operate their heavy deisel powered Tigers and King Tiger Tanks, and other heavy machinery 67 years ago?

    They had no access to the Russian oil fields, and they lost the chance to obtain oil through the Suez Cannal, after the British and Americans routed them in North Africa. So how did they operate those Tigers?

    I always found the movie, “The Formula” with Marlin Brando, very interesting. I am sure that if the Germans had devised a formula that would make gasoline obsolete it would have been bought up and buried by the Oil Companies, even then.

    I disagree with you. It was AFTER 9/11 that the ailines seized the opportunity to reduce services, eliminate meals, charge for every conceivable thing (e.g. baggage and blankets), and they cut back flights and greatly reduced capacity. Consequently, since then the planes have been packed. 9/11 provided a convenient excuse for them to do this.

    But I well remember that BEFORE 9/11 the planes were often flying jalf empty. Back then, I always always got an empty seat next to me, often an entire row to myself. Not any more! Since 9/11 the planes have been filled to capacity and services reduced to almost zero. They don’t even give you peanuts anymore, and whatever you want you have to pay for it. Even first class has become what “ecomomy” once was, and economy has become sardine class.

    I have listened to and read many debates between 9/11 truthers and their critics. The Truthers were destroyed very early on in these debates. They have resorted to lying and slander when they are destroyed in pubic debates. Steven Jones and Dylan Ayers were given ample opportunity to defend their 9/11 conspiracy nonesense on the show..and they couldn’t…they came across as having a very wierd agenda…an agenda which makes them immune to facts and logic. As Matt Taibi stated on the Nat Geo special the 9/11 conspiracy requires the involvement of several thousand..and now it includes the dozens of people who worked on the Nat Geo special on the 9/11 conspiracy. The beauty of the 9/11 conspiracy is that if anyone disagrees with it..well.. they are involved in the cover up aslo.

    The 9/11 conspiracy nonesense induces civic passiveness in ordinary Americans because it perpetuates the myth of a superpowerfull-competent evil goverment. The “US” goverment is evil..but is also infested with gross incompetents at the highest levels. The 9/11 conspiracy nonesense takes the focus off the horrific consequences of the passage of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act…such as 9/11 and the shooting of American soldiers getting ready to deploy to Iraq-Afghanistan at Fort Hood Texas. Alex Jones-who is the ring leader of the 9/11 conspiracy nut movement-has made it very clear many times over on his show that the doesn’t mind if the Native Born White American Majority are rapidly race-replaced by high fertility post-1965 nonwhites as long as it is done through legal immigration..he is an open race-replacement enthusiast-besides being a glorified used-car salesman.

    There are two options:9/11 and the Fort Hood shooting are massive indictment of the America destroying 1965 immigration Reform Act or 2) focus with Moonie-like-glazed-eyes-intensity about the enormous “skill and intelligence” exhibited by George W Bush and Dick Cheney as they planned the destruction of the Twin Towers in the Oval Offiice late at night..and blather on about the poor Muslim “Americans” being scapegoated by the White bigots.

    Every Pakistani “American” school kid-just off the boat from Pakistan a few months earlier-sitting in a NYC PS knew that something very big was going to happen on 9/11, just a few weeks…and in one documented case..two days!!… before 9/11 occured..it was only a mystery to millions of Native Born White Americans lost in fantasy football,American Idol and Dancing with the Stars..it shouldn’t have been..the Muslim “Americans” nearly knocked down the Twin Towers on a snowy Nov 7 1993. 9/11 was completely avoidable.

    The 9/11 conspiracy theory movement is a gift to the race-replacement enthusiasts.

    National Geographic? Who would expect them to parrot anything but the government’s officially sanctioned version of 9/11?

    You must believe the following:

    1. Uncpecified part of WTC1 or 2 flies not just over the street but a couple of hundred feet to WTC7 and hits it.

    2. Part crashes through the ceiling and hits a tank of diesel.

    3. Diesel runs out and catches fire.

    4. Sprinklers mysteriously fail, small fires burn for hours.

    5. BBC and CNN reports collapse while building is still standing. (http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/bbc_wtc7_videos.html – BBC says years later that was “a mistake”).

    6. Building that burned for a couple of hours collapses in less than 10 seconds. Never before or after 9-11 did a burning steel-frame building collapse in a similar fashion.

    7. Even though WTC7 was killed by debris from WTC1 and/or WTC2 and is surrounded by non-WTC- buildings, no non-WTC-building was seriously damaged by the debris from either buildings 1, 2 or 7.

    8. For some strange reason, the scrap heap of the former WTC-buildings becomes a “matter of national security” and is sealed off, cleaned up quickly and sent to China to be smelted down. Why a pile of rubble must be sealed, shipped off 6800 miles and any details kept secret is never explained.

    9. Given the fact that no steel-frame building never collapsed from fire before, it would have been a very good idea to let engineers analyze the remains and update the fire code. Obviously the WTC had some weakness that should be avoided in future skyscraper construction, yet it seems that it was more important to smelt the remains as scrap as quickly as possible and keep everything as secret as possible.

    10. The official WTC-commission does not mention the collapse of WTC7.

    Jupiter:

    Not you, nor I, nor anyone else, 9/11 “truther” or not, should count their chickens before they hatch.

    Here’s what I mean.

    One of the sub-issues in the 9/11 debate is United 93. The official story is that a crew of passengers, cognizant of the hijackings earlier that morning, took control of the Boeing 757 from the Muslim hijackers, and deliberately crashed the plane in a field, near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The “Let’s Roll” story, I’ll call it. One of the commonly told alternate explanations is that the Feds made up the “Let’s Roll” story as a cover for Air Force F-16s shooting it down, again near Shanksville.

    The version I bought was somewhere in between, that “Let’s Roll” was true and the F-16s was true. I thought “Let’s Roll” did happen, and I thought the AF sent F-16s to shoot it down. I had no guess or clue to which one of the two happened first to bring it down, only that if one of the two didn’t happen, the other one would have.

    Now I no longer buy even that, because of this news that came out late last week:

    http://goo.gl/a8wpd

    As it turns out, there was not a single armed AF jet based domestically anywhere near where United 93 was flying that could have shot it down. Turns out the plan was Komikaze. This pretty much proves that “Let’s Roll” did happen and did take down U93, because the Komikaze mission didn’t happen. This also explains why the Feds were so evasive about answering questions about the AF involvement in U93 — I guess it would have generated too much of a scandal to admit there were no armed jets based in the American northeast. (It should still be a scandal.)

    My point is, I think the voyage to the truth about 9/11 overall will take some really weird, strange and unpredictable turns before the whole truth comes out.

    As for your points in post 35, your logical problem is that you’re falling into the “either-or” logical fallacy. In your world, you either believe the official story 100% of the way or you believe the obviously wildest and easy to disprove alternate theories 100% of the way. I don’t know what you would make of me, who thinks the truth is somewhere in between, or maybe it’s not in between those extremes, like I insinuated above, maybe it’s in a weird direction we can’t conceive of right now. Also, you seem to think that if don’t believe the official story, you are automatically for the race replacement of native born white Americans, and that if you’re against the RR of NBWAs, you must believe in the official story. What do you make of me? I don’t believe in the official story 100% of the way, and I think that the RR of NBWA is not a good thing under any circumstances, documented or undocumented, high IQ or low IQ.

    One more thing: Debates are overrated. The truth is all that matters. Or, in the case of the kinds of debates Jared Taylor engages in, racial demographics are all that mattered. Look at these Republican debates thus far — Newt Gingrich is the only one in the bunch who sounds like he can think on his feet, but he’s not going to become President. Jared Taylor can run circles around any of these Raza kooks in a debate, but that won’t matter to our grandchildren as they’re “feet don’t fail me now” fleeing the American Southwest. Walter Mondale consistently out-debated Reagan in 1984…how did that work out for him?

    I disagree with you. It was AFTER 9/11 that the ailines seized the opportunity to reduce services, eliminate meals, charge for every conceivable thing (e.g. baggage and blankets), and they cut back flights and greatly reduced capacity. Consequently, since then the planes have been packed. 9/11 provided a convenient excuse for them to do this.

    But I well remember that BEFORE 9/11 the planes were often flying jalf empty. Back then, I always always got an empty seat next to me, often an entire row to myself. Not any more! Since 9/11 the planes have been filled to capacity and services reduced to almost zero. They don’t even give you peanuts anymore, and whatever you want you have to pay for it. Even first class has become what “ecomomy” once was, and economy has become sardine class.

    ________________________________________________________

    This is getting confusing, but I’ll try to sort it out. I’m the one who wrote the first post about there being so few passengers on the planes. Then Anonymous 31 disputed what I had written and said the planes were always half empty. I don’t agree, but this is what I should have added to my original post.

    Do you remember those little “mini-documentaries” they were doing on the news channels right after 9/11? There was the case of two women who were flying to California to visit Dineyland. One of them had her little girl with her. They interviewed the father of one of them. He said the last time he spoke to his daughter was when she called him from the airport and said everything was fine except that the flight was overbooked and they were putting her friend on another flight. They never made it. One was on the first plane that hit the WTC and the other was on the second plane that hit the WTC.

    Now, if there were only maybe 45 passengers on the 9/11 planes how could someone be bumped because of overbooking? It’s very strange.

    By the way, I still stand by what I said about the planes being packed in the 2 or 3 years leading up to 9/11. I was on the road for almost 15 years and flew all the time.

    The black boxes from Flight 93, which hit the ground at 500 mph, were recovered. The VOICE recorder survived but the FLIGHT data box was allegedly damaged beyond recovery.

    The government tells us the black boxes were not recovered from Flights 11 or 175, the two planes that hit WTC 1 and 2.

    As for Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon:

    The government claims that the Voice Data Recorder was too damaged during the crash and that no usable data could be retrieved from it. If true, this would be the first time in aviation history that a solid-state data recorder was destroyed during a crash.

    Pilots for 9/11 Truth report that the data stream from the Flight Data Recorder (FDR) for American Airlines flight 77, which struck the Pentagon on 9/11, shows that the cockpit door never opened during the entire 90 minute flight. The data was provided by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which has refused to comment.

    http://goo.gl/vv2DT

    The official story about flight 77 is that five Muslim terrorists brandishing box cutters forced their way into the cockpit and herded two pilots, four flight attendants and all the passengers to the back of the plane. This story came into being via Ted Olson, US Solicitor General, who told CNN that he received two phone calls from his wife, a passenger on the doomed flight:

    Ted Olson’s story changed several times. Sometimes he claimed that the calls from his wife were made from seat back phones, other times that she used her cell phone.

    According to American Airlines customer service, the American Airlines maintenance manual for that aircraft, and American Airlines Captain Ralph Kolstad, seatback phones on 757s had been deactivated prior to 9/11/01. (They were later removed entirely, as they never worked well.)

    Barbara Olson couldn’t have used a cell phone either: numerous 9/11 researchers, most notably David Ray Griffin, have pointed out that cell phones did not work on airplanes on 9/11. The speed and altitude of a commercial airliner both present overwhelming obstacles to a cell phone’s need to lock onto a cell tower and then hand off to another tower in a new location.

    It was the FBI that revealed the evidence that decisively disproves Ted Olson’s story. In the Zacarias Moussaoui trial in 2006, the FBI presented a report on the cell phone calls from all four 9/11 flights. Their report on AA77 shows that there was only one phone call from Barbara Olson, but that it was an unconnected call lasting zero seconds. So Ted Olson either lied about receiving calls from his wife or was deceived into believing he received calls from her.

    As for the black boxes on Flights 175 and 11:

    Following an aviation accident, recovery of the black boxes is of first importance after rescue of survivors.

    Never in history has a black box not been recovered on land until 9/11. Debris from the WTC towers was sifted with a fine toothed- comb looking for fingernails, 1/4″ bone fragments and tiny bits of tissue for DNA matches, yet it is claimed the searchers could not find the black boxes.

    These boxes are carefully engineered and constructed to make them indestructible — specifically to withstand full speed impacts into the ground and fires of up to 1800 degrees. CVRs and FDRs are coated with heat resistant bright orange paint for high visibility in a wreckage and equipped with REL transmitters so they can be located.

    Yet the government claims none of the four were ever found.

    Two N.Y. City firefighters, Mike Bellone and Nicholas De Masi, claimed in 2004 that they had found three of the four boxes, and that Federal agents took them and told the two men not to mention having found them. (The FBI denies the whole story.)

    http://goo.gl/vwqdd

    Why would the US government want to hide information about the two hijacked flights from the public ? Especially because they were the motivation for the nation’s War on Terror and two wars against Afghanistan and Iraq?

    Conspiracy theories abound, with some claiming the planes were actually pilotless military aircraft, or that they had little or nothing to do with the building collapses. The easiest way to quash such rumors and thinking would be openness.

    Yes, I couldn’t agree more.

    I think the conspiracy theorists can get carried away. What is credible is that I think the President knew the attacks were imminent and there was nothing done to stop them.

    Also remember that there was a third building WTC 7 that collapsed hours after 1 and 2 with no credible explanation. Other buildings were closer to the site of WTC 1 and 2 but were not damaged structurally. Kind of makes you wonder.

    A good video of the collapse can be seen here:

    The only thing you need to know to totally squash the 9/11 conspiracy theories is to point out that the US government would NEVER plan out such a conspiracy and pin the blame on nonwhites. This is the same government that’s trying to push multiculturalism down our throats. If it were a conspiracy, they would blame some white militia group rather than Arab hijackers. That pretty much demolishes the 9/11 conspiracies right there. The whole thing is a distraction from the REAL threat: nonwhite immigration to the US. It’s really that simple.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    How is it a conspiracy theory for experts to examine copious evidence and state that is does not match the explanation given by the government?

    According to the “conspiracy theory” debunkers:

    Physics professors have ‘zero knowledge of rudimentary physics.’

    Internationally recognized logicians have ‘a general inability to think logically.’ People trained in the scientific method who use it to seek truth are ‘self-loathing.’

    Even the lead members of the 9/11 Commission itself have said that information was withheld from them and the commission was set up to fail… NIST refuses to release the details of the simulation upon which NIST bases its conclusion.

    The 9/11 tards just can not accept the obvious fact that it was incedibly easy to knock down the Twin Towers. Right after 9/11 occured, CBS national news kept showing an interview of Osama Bin Laden’s second in command and personal physician-Bin Laden was married to his daughter-with a CBS reporter in a car driving through downtown Karachi. To quote him verbatim:”America..very easy..very easy..no problem..America is an open society..no problem”..he made these comments one year before 9/11 on the context of a conversation about terrorist attacks by Al-Queda against America.

    Two days before 9/11, an off-the-boat 12 year Pakistani kid sitting in a NYC PS in Brooklyn with a view of the Twin Towers turned to his teacher and said:”see those two buildings over there..in two days the will be knocked down”..his teacher reported this to the FBI after 9/11. So obviously,that there was going to be an attack on the Twin Towers was widely known in the Pakistani “American” community.

    Obvious Conclusion: 9/11 occured because of the utter stupidity and sloth of millions of Native Born White Americans who are are lost in ESPN sports entertainment and fantasy football fantasy.

    The shooting at Fort Hood by Major Nidal and the attempted blowing up Time Squares by an off-the-boat Pakistani failed Hedge fund trader were also a direct result of the monumental stupidity and sloth of millions of Native Born White Amerians. And don’t be suprised when one of his “American” born children end up as cadets at either the Air Force Academy or West Point.

    Paul Craig has another one of his crazy 9/11 conspiracy posts on vdare.com. I will stake my life on the following:Paul Craig Roberts is on board with the race-replacaement program.

    The crazy 9/11 conspiracy theorist Gary Null should have been paid more attetnion to who was making his vitamin supplements in muslim infested NJ..if he had, he along with 12 users of his supplements would not have permanent kidney damage caused by a massive overdose of vitamin D3 in his protien powder.

    Jupiter:

    Sure, because you’re the only person on Earth who opposes our racial dispossession. Everyone else is obviously a nutcase, kook, “tard,” or an outright enemy.

    Plain words, you’re getting a bit too arrogant and shrill for your own good. And this is me saying it, someone who has adopted your trademark phrases, and someone who, like you, wishes there was more straight up opposition to the RR of NBWAs for its own sake.

    BTW, Paul Craig Roberts is one of the very few syndicated columnists who recognizes the treachery of the H-xB visa program and the legalized race replacement that it portends. So much for your clairvoyance.

    Tim:

    The purpose was not to blame 9/11 on Whites — it was to justify instigating MORE war in the Middle East.

    Bush was hesitant to involve the US in another Middle Eastern war, hence the quote from Cui Bono above about Bush:

    In a debate at Wake Forest University, October 11, 2000, Bush Junior said we’d better start leaving those countries alone.

    The American people also were in no mood to involve themselves in another war, send their children to be subjected to IEDs and guerrilla warfare and tax dollars into tar pit (General Scharzkof’s exact description)

    False flags have been used by the USG to great effect in the past, as in the Gulf of Tonkin incident to launch and justify the War in Vietnam — to the tune of 50,000 + American soldiers dead and billions of dollars wasted. What was the outcome?

    The latest wars in the Middle East (justified by 9/11 according to the USG)?: 6,400 Americans dead, tens of thousands of Americans injured, many with permanent head injuries from explosives, a trillion dollars wasted, untold Muslims killed inciting more hatred and anger against the US — all with no end in sight and expanding.

    When will it end? Are these wars worth it? Are they worth sacrificing America’s young? What is it the USG hopes to accomplish by fighting these wars? Have we been successful?

    That almost happened. In the first few weeks after 9/11, the official party line from that Poverty Center we all know and love so much was that “right wing extremists” were cheering 9/11, because of the “anti-Semitism” they shared in common with the Muslims who did 9/11. (Or at least part of it.) When the only concrete examples of that they could find were two jerkwads in the woods, one in Pennsylvania and one in Arkansas, the Poverty Palace dropped that line and came up with a new line, that “right wing extremists” were opposed to 9/11 happening, but “unfortunately exploiting it for their xenophobic anti-immigrant agenda.” When it came that, they did find a lot more concrete evidence.

    I think if the SPLC were able to con enough people into thinking that “right wing extremists” cheered 9/11, they would have moved on next into making people think that “right wing extremists” had a hand in doing 9/11.

    In the years since then, the SPLC has sorta vacillated back and forth between those two party lines, mostly with the latter but occasionally hinting at the former.

    I hate to say it but the SPLC was right for the first time in history. I use to listen to National Alliance Website. That is exactly what they did. First they cheered the attacks. Then when they realized Whites who listened to them did not agree they did a 180. It was the the last time I listened to their programs. I switched to the Jared Taylor school of Race Realism.
