LET’S ROLL: THE PLANE TRUTH GONE IN A PUFF OF SMOKE AND MIRRORS
It can be said that after the initial attack on America, the real reporting and the real journalism of covering a horrible crime was spun into a mythology with heroes and villains, good and evil doers On the day of the attacks, the majority of Americans who were lured into the mimetic trap produced by previous predictive were inclined to adopt the conditioned mindset of good guys and bad guys. This type of response was further reinforced when George W. Bush, an old fashioned warmonger surrounded by shadow government operatives developed the moral coercion of black and white terms such good versus evil.
Calling the enemy evil doers, creating “us against them,” “you are with us or with terrorists “which left no room to contemplate or reflect on what had happened. The American people lived through a disaster movie. It was one that they had already seen and their response was similar to an armchair viewer that runs through all of the emotions in a theater and believes that the good guys always win.
A psychological study on what people were thinking the day of 911 demonstrates that while sadness and anxiety were first felt on that day, the anger spiked when George W. Bush started speaking of Evil doers and the evil enemy.
The study was conducted and published by Psychological Science. Psychologists analyzed 500,000 text messages sent to pagers on 911 for emotional words. The words used by Bush were obviously selected to trigger ideas of anger and vengeance. We were all responding to programming that was already being used to accept the shoot first, hang ‘em high cowboy diplomacy.
This is why the myth of 911 had to be created. It was inevitable. How do we know that what we are seeing with the September 11th attack is a well thought out tall tale? Because it was all written and published a year before it happened.
Manifestos of intent on a government coup and mythologies were drawn up because our leaders thought that one day we can all look back and praise them like heroes or Gods. For them a new militarized fortress was the Goal but the American people would not stand for it.
The intent of what was happening was first published in the Project for the New American Century document. Section 5 that outlines a new future of American defense and the maintaining the preeminence of U.S. military forces. Section V of Rebuilding America’s Defenses, entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force”, includes the sentence: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a “new Pearl harbor.”
Pearl Harbor is the first clue. Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack that prompted the United States to demand a war with Germany and Japan under Franklin Roosevelt. The statement of a New
Pearl Harbor was a meme for another surprise attack that would be needed to convince the American people that it was time to preemptively strike Iraq.
Conveniently the attack or the New Pearl Harbor happened on September 11th, 2001 and it was later that psychologists and mythologists went to work to shape American attitudes about what they witnessed none of which was totally true. Some of it was true, and other stories about 9/11 were spun myth, lies and disinformation.
The use of disinformation and diversion to manipulate public opinion is a highly developed art. It is well understood not only by psychological operations experts in the national security establishment, but also by marketing and public relations wizards. With the engineering of public reaction to September 11, disinformation has been used with a sophistication and depth that is historically unprecedented. A key tool in this modern form of psychological warfare is the “meme” — an idea that acts like an infectious agent to spread itself through a population.
Through careful construction of memes, the perpetrators could depend on others to unwittingly promote their cover story and conceal the truth.
FDR once said, “If it happens, it is because we planned it that way.” This kind of mindset negates the belief that the people are always in control of their government. Voting seems to be the last great argument of defense. But as we can obviously see
The stakes are so awesome in this contest of life and death, that the characterization of the good guys and the bad guys has reached new levels of propaganda. Those who coerce you into believing that Government will protect you from terror are very likely to be the criminal element behind the terror. They have created it and they can cure it.
When you ask people to revisit the events of 9/11 and reconsider what really happened, you enter the twilight zone of public mythology where people don’t want to rethink unhappy events and where you challenge their personal egos.
One particular unhappy event is the Flight 93 story where we are now being told and the mythology is being reinforced that the passengers on board that flight over powered the hijackers and brought the plane down into a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania.
After the plane had gone down, there were reports that the order was made to shoot down the plane. The NORAD tapes also confirmed that there was an order to intercept or shoot down the plane however there are portions of the tapes that are unclear and there is even evidence that NORAD was following and tracking phantom planes that showed up on radar.
The initial reviews of the black box recordings were not conclusive as to what brought down the aircraft at first. There was a three-minute gap between the time the black box tape goes silent and the time that top scientists have pinpointed for the crash. Several leading seismologists agree that Flight 93 crashed last Sept. 11 at 10:06:05 a.m., give or take a couple of seconds the black box recording stopped just after 10:03.
The FBI and other agencies refused repeated requests to explain the discrepancy. But the relatives of Flight 93 passengers who heard the cockpit tape reported they heard sounds of an on-board struggle beginning at 9:58 a.m., but there was a final “rushing sound” at 10:03, and the tape fell silent.
After that report the story had changed at least three times. There were time discrepancies and of course the now famous “Let’s roll “account where the passengers overcame the hijackers and crashed the plane, saving the Whitehouse form being destroyed.
With the heroes of Flight 93 America now had a model of how they can fight back against terror. How can anyone argue against a said heroic act? You really can’t and that was the trap. Regardless of the truth, the hero story is a romantic idea. This idea can be spun to take out the nasty reality of a Military shooting down an aircraft whether justified or not. It also eliminates another criticism of a Military that was unable to do its job and a Vice president that was giving orders without the approval of a president that was stranded on Air force one with no military escort after the country was attacked. Believing in the myth of flight 93 also eliminates the worry that multibillion dollar war machine could not protect Washington or New York from an attack from primitive men The myth of flight 93 also neutralizes significant amounts of forensic evidence, including parts of the plane found fully eight miles from its crash site and a pulverized plane in a crater.
While doing research for this article I was looking feverishly for any audio that confirmed the “Let’s Roll” story. I was of the opinion that somewhere you could hear it on the black box. I really couldn’t find a piece of audio where Tod Beamer actually said “You ready? OK. Let’s roll.”
After a lot of investigation I never found the audio only an account from a woman who claimed that she received a call from Beamer. Beamer didn’t bother to call his wife, but managed to talk to a GTE air phone operator. Lisa Jefferson took the call and promised to call his wife. Jefferson was required through GTE company protocol to record any and all Emergency calls made from a plane using the airline phone. She apparently didn’t. She just made the claim that she heard the words “Let’s roll” and the rest has become a hero’s tale.
In the case of Flight 93, there were other so called heroes identified by the major TV networks through alleged cell phone calls. Although there is ongoing controversy about whether some calls could be placed by cell phones at that time, this detail is not important because the myth still stands and is being revisited 10 years later. After the initial “Let’s roll” claim there were a whole bunch of cell phone call claims all sounding scripted and delivered with an eerie calm or a more business like way.
Two calls in particular were spotlighted in the media. The call of Cee Cee Lyles starts out as calm and with the report that she is aware that planes have been flown into the World trade Center. Using new software to listen to the call you can hear that Cee Cee was prompted by someone on the plane. You can hear whispering and a mans voice during the call. You also hear as the phone is hanging up the words “It was great” then “Sorry” and then the words “It was great” again. You can also hear the whisper of “what’s so funny” and someone whispering as if prompting “I’m sorry “
Was the call coerced? Was she reading from a script? It was peculiar and yet no one took the time to analyze the phone call because of the hero’s tale that was spun. The other call was a call given by Mark Bingham. The story goes that when mark made the call he said “Hello mom this is Mark Bingham, there are three men hijacking this plane—and then he kept saying “do you believe me?’ Then the phone went dead.
Later we learn that there were well over a dozen people reported receiving calls from loved ones–mostly calls to new widows whose spouses had died when Flight 93 crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Yet there was no report on how these calls were made, why many of them were not recorded and how most of them were all reported by loved ones without any proof of the calls even happening.
Now with the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 we have the ability to show how a half truth historical account can both reinforce and or even change a previous story , with technology we can also expose come eerie inconsistencies and ask ourselves if what the myth tells us is all true.
