If you love a good conspiracy theory, maybe even a fan of Michael Moore’s, Fahrenheit 9/11, you would have been as keen to get to a DVD player as I was, last week when I received, in the mail, an unexpected package, containing some literature and a note from a friend about what he felt was a film that needed to be seen by as many people as possible.
Zeitgeist, the Movie – is a 2007 documentary film, apparently already seen by millions around the world, produced by Peter Joseph, and looks at the so called ‘Jesus myth’, the attacks of 9/11, and the Federal Reserve Bank. It was released free online via Google Video in June 2007.
Part of the documentary titled, “All the World’s a Stage,” looks at September 11th and asks why mainstream media didn’t ask enough questions of the US government, and why countless gaping holes in the 9/11 Commission Report have, to this day gone unanswered!
The movie makes numerous claims; many of which you may have heard, such as that the United States government was warned about the impending September 11, 2001 attacks; the planes were allowed to reach their targets, and that The World Trade Center buildings underwent a controlled demolition.
The most shocking overall insinuation is that 9/11 was either orchestrated, or allowed to happen by criminal elements within the United States government.
Hundreds of witnesses recount hearing or being injured by several explosions coming from the Twin Towers, before and after the planes hit the buildings! The buildings collapsed due to well placed dynamite as per a demolition, and not due to a plane hitting. The ‘pancake’ effect that we witnessed in shock as the buildings fell to dust, is not possible from the impact of a plane.
The Head of Pakistani Intelligence, General Mahmoud Ahmad, transferred $100,000 (US) to 911 ring leader Mohammed Atta just prior to the attacks. The 911 Commission made no inquiry into the money transfer, deeming it “of little practical significance in their official report!”. On the morning of 911, US government officials were having breakfast in Washington with General Ahmad.
At least 6 of the hijackers listed in the report are still alive, and have never been linked to Osama Bin Laden. The passport of one of the Flight 11 hijackers, Satan Suqarmi, somehow made it through the fireball and rubble, and was recovered by officials.
When Osama was the most wanted man in the world post 911, he reportedly spent 2 weeks in an American hospital in Dubai, treated by US doctors and visited by the CIA.
How could Flight 77 which hit the Pentagon simply vanish without a trace? ‘How could anyone fly a 60 ton, 125 foot wide, 44 foot tall plane, through the obstacle course of a low building, doing a 270 degree downward spiral, and flown by a Hani Hanjour, who was described by an employee of the A2 Flight School, where he trained, as barely able to fly a light aircraft at basic level.
Why in the debris of Flight 77 were there no seats, luggage or black box found? According to the 911 Commission Report, this was explained away due to the plane literally vaporising, due to the heat from the jet fuel. Given that the a whole plane, made of steel and titanium could literally, vanish due to heat, how is it that bodies somehow remained in tact, and were able to be identified by fingerprints and DNA?
There’s plenty to take in, and brings together many of theories that have done the rounds post 9/11, but is worth a watch none the less. Whether or not you believe some or any of what this movie claims, it certainly makes you realise that at the time, there was so much to take in, so much shock and horror and complete disbelief, that it’s any wonder that some questions that should have been asked at the time, didn’t because they ‘conveniently’ got buried under the rubble and debris of 9/11.
