Today everything agrees with Thierry Meyssan
[Editor’s note: When Thierry Meyssan published “Hunt the Boeing!” and Pentagate (2002), he was making the key point that no Boeing 757 had hit the Pentagon, which meant that, as the US military command-and-control center, the entire 9/11 operation had to be a fraud. He was right about that, where I have embedded the results of collaborative research by members of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which I founded, as confirmation across the board.’]
By questioning the official version of the September 11 attacks, Thierry Meyssan opened a global debate in 2001. But the most important part of his book on September 11 was a political science study that predicted the evolution future of the United States after those crimes. The problem is not knowing how the attacks were committed but why the United States reacted that day in violation of its own Constitution and why it immediately adopted profound reforms that changed the nature of its institutions. Meyssan then predicted the transformation of the American Empire, a transformation that we are seeing with the planning of the fall of Kabul. Everything he announced in 2002 has been confirmed in the last 20 years.
In late 2001, I published a series of articles about the attacks on 11 September 2001 and in March 2002 published a book on the subject [ 1 ]. Since its publication, my book has been translated into 18 languages and has opened a worldwide debate that questioned the veracity of the official United States narrative on the events of September 11.
The most important thing is that the authorities of the United States and their allies reduced all my work to the content of the first pages of my book – the ones that questioned the official version of the attacks – and pretended not to see that it was a political science book that denounced what those “false flag ” attacks [ 5 ] were going to justify: the resurgence of institutional surveillance of citizenship in Western countries and the beginning of the “endless war ” in the expanded Middle East or Greater Middle East.
In this article I am going to review everything that we have learned in the last 20 years about those attacks. But we will mainly see if my 2002 predictions turned out to be true or not.
The black hole of September 11, 2001
If someone asks what happened on September 11, 2001, you will surely conjure up images of the attacks on the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. But surely you will forget many other things, such as the cases of people who benefited from the fall in the shares of the affected airlines … benefits that they could obtain because they knew what was going to happen that day; the fire that devastated the annex of the White House – the Old Eisenhower Building – or the collapse of a third building of the World Trade Center.
The most surprising thing is that almost no one remembers since, at 10 in the morning of that day, Richard Clarke launched the “Government Continuity Plan ” [ 6 ] . With that decision, President George W. Bush and the entire Congress were suspended from their functions and under military “protection”.
President Bush was taken to an air base in Nebraska, where there were already – since the night before – all the heads of companies that occupied the upper floors of the Twin Towers [ 7 ] , while all the members of the Congress had been concentrated in the Greenbrier mega-bunker. Power was thus in the hands of the “Government of Continuity “, which was located in another mega-bunker – the so-called “Complex R ” of Raven Rock Mountain [ 8 ] . Power was not returned to civilians until the end of that day.
Who were the members of that “Government of Continuity ” and what did they do during the time they assumed power? It is not yet known. Members of Congress who raised that question were never able to arrange a hearing to clarify it.
It is important to understand that as long as this and other aspects of what happened that day are not clarified, the controversy about September 11, 2001 will continue. The protocol that was applied that day had been conceived by President Eisenhower at a time when nuclear war was feared and starting from the principle that if he – the president of the United States -, the presidents of the Senate and the House of Representatives, as well as the majority of the members of Congress, perished, that is, in the absence of constitutional powers, the military would logically have to assume the continuity of the government. But, on September 11, 2001, absolutely nothing of the kind happened. Not a single representative of the three powers recognized in the US Constitution died. Consequently, the transfer of power to a “Continuity Government ” was an unconstitutional measure.
In other words, it was a coup.
The September 11 attacks
In my book on 9/11 and subsequent events, I hypothesized about what really happened that day. But that is irrelevant in my proof. The faction that perpetrated this crime wanted to provoke a shock comparable to what sparked the events of Pearl Harbor … according to what they had written before the members of the Project for a New American Century, to justify a modification the way of life and functioning of the United States. What they did was tell the public an incredible story … that everyone swallowed without question.
9/11: What happened? Who was Responsible? Why did they do it? (6 September 2020)
- To this day, there is still nothing to show that the 19 individuals designated as “hijackers” were actually on board the hijacked planes. These people did not even appear on the passenger lists that the airlines published that same day. The videos showing these “hijackers” were not recorded in New York but in other airports where they were in transit.
- To this day, there is no proof that the 35 telephone communications with passengers on the hijacked planes actually existed [ 9 ] . The same happens with the telephone conversation attributed to a passenger who allegedly attacked the hijackers of flight UA 93 and with the telephone conversation that the Attorney General, Theodore Olson, claimed to have had with his wife, who was traveling in flight AA 77. On the contrary, the FBI specified that the hijacked planes did not have telephones built into the passenger seats and that said passengers would have had to use their own cell phones … which at that time did not they operated at more than 5,000 feet of altitude. Furthermore, none of the aforementioned communications appeared in the lists of communications provided by the telephone companies – not even the one reported by Attorney General Olson.
- To this day, there is no physical explanation that allows us to understand the vertical collapse (on themselves) of the Twin Towers of the World Trade and of a third building of that complex. The Twin Towers each received the impact of an airplane, without it knocking them down. [Editor’s note: Actually, the apparent impact of the planes in New York City was an illusion, which appears to have been done using sophisticated holograms. See “9/11: What happened? Who was Responsible? Why did they do it? (above)] According to the official version, the fuel from the planes burned and the fire melted the vertical beams that supported the two towers, which would explain their collapse. A third building in the complex also collapsed – without impact from any aircraft – supposedly because it was affected by the collapse of the Twin Towers … but it did not fall sideways but also collapsed on itself. Note that no one explains the side explosions reported by firefighters and that are seen in numerous filmed images. No one explains either the presence of sectioned vertical beams – not cast. Both the explosions and the presence of sectioned beams indicate the existence of a demolition not accidental but controlled. Another fact, neither before nor after the September 11, 2001 has been the collapse of any skyscraper as a result of a major fire [ 10 ]. And after that September 11, no one has suggested modifying the way skyscrapers are built to avoid a similar catastrophe. Finally, the photos of real “pools” of molten steel taken by the firefighters and the photos of the FEMA (the American agency for the management of disasters) that show how the rock on which they were built melted. The foundations are inexplicable according to the official version.
- To this day, there is no proof that a passenger plane crashed into the Pentagon. The day after the attacks, firefighters explained at a press conference that they had not found anything from a plane there. The authorities, who published a fierce statement against my book, announced that they had found numerous airplane parts and assured that they were using them to reconstitute the aircraft in a hangar … but then they stopped reporting on it. By the way, relatives of victims, initially scandalized by the content of my book, changed their attitude when the authorities handed them funeral urns with remains supposedly identified thanks to … fingerprints, which should be impossible in the case of People killed amid the extremely high temperatures of a major fire. Some of these victims’ relatives refused to sign the confidentiality agreement that the authorities proposed to them in exchange for a large compensation.
Widespread control of Western states over their own citizens
In the immediate aftermath of the September 11 attacks, only in a matter of days, the George W. Bush administration passed an Anti-Terrorism Code in Congress, under the name of the USA Patriot Act , the “American Patriot Act.” It was a very voluminous text that had been written over the previous 2 years by the Federalist Society – which included among its members Attorney General Theodore Olson and Attorney General John Ashcroft. The US Patriot Act suspends the application of the Bill of Rights (Bill of Rights) in cases of terrorism.
Let’s do some history. During the formation of the United States of America, two opposing factions emerged. One of them, headed by Alexander Hamilton, wrote the American Constitution with the intention of establishing a system similar to the British monarchy, but with governors instead of the nobility. The other faction, led by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, rejected that Constitution until 10 Amendments were added to it that were to prevent future US rulers from resorting to “Reason of State .” Those 10 Amendments constitute the United States Bill of Rights or Bill of Rights and their suspension through the Patriot Act upsets the balance that should serve as the basis for the founding of the United States. The imposition of the Patriot Act favors the aspirations of the faction that wanted to build the American nation in the image and likeness of the British monarchy, the faction of the descendants of the so-called “Pilgrim Fathers “, the exiled Puritans of England. President George W. Bush, like his father President George H. Bush, is a direct descendant of one of the 41 signatories of the 1620 “Mayflower Pact .”
To enforce the USA Patriot Act , a new ministry, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), was created in the United States, encompassing a number of existing agencies. This Department of Homeland Security of the United States was equipped with a political police capable of spying on any American citizen. The Washington Post revealed in 2011 that the Department of Homeland Security officials recruited 835,000, of which 112,000 were engaged in secret [ 11 ], which means that this agency has a spy for each 370 inhabitants, making the United States the most Orwellian country on the planet.
Edward Snowden revealed in 2013 how the Department of Homeland Security works. Snowden did not limit himself to revealing information about the global espionage system for international communications implemented by the National Security Agency (NSA), but also disclosed elements about internal mass surveillance in USA. Today he lives in Russia as a political refugee.
That system of monitoring and internal control of the population, although less documented, has been spreading gradually in all Western states through the “Five Eyes” (Five Eyes) [ 12 ] and NATO.
The ” endless war “, from September 11, 2001 to the fall of Kabul in 2021
A month after the attacks of September 11, 2001, the then Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, created the “Office of Force Transformation” and placed it under the direction of the Admiral Arthur Cebrowski. It was about changing the very role of the United States military.
The Rumsfeld-Cebrowski doctrine [ 13 ] is as important a reform as the creation of the Pentagon after the crisis of 1929. But this time it is about adapting to financial capitalism. The United States will no longer try to win wars but to prolong them as long as possible. This is the true meaning of President George Bush Jr.’s expression “endless war .” The true objective of the United States will be to destroy the very structures of the states in the countries whose wealth it seeks to exploit. The destruction of the States seeks to prevent the countries that are victims of this strategy from exercising some kind of political control over their own resources. US Colonel Ralph Peters The summarized this doctrine in one sentence: “Stability, enemy of the United States” [ 14 ].
That is exactly what just happened in Afghanistan. The United States began its war against Afghanistan just after 9/11. It was supposed to be a war of only weeks, but it turned into a never-ending war. The victory of the Taliban that we have just witnessed was organized – by the United States – to continue prolonging the conflict. That is why President Biden just declared that the United States did not invade Afghanistan to build a state there – the exact opposite of what the United States did in Germany and Japan after World War II.
When he met Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Biden publicly rejected the “endless war .” But now he has just reactivated it, aligning himself – like Barack Obama – behind the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski doctrine.
All the conflicts that started after September 11, 2001 have continued until today. Far from ending after the military victory proclaimed by the United States, instability has settled in Iraq. The same has happened in Libya, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Of course, there is always the recourse of calling what happens in these countries a “civil war ” and accusing their leaders of being “dictators ” or simply not explaining anything. But the truth is that those countries were stable before the Western interventions promoted by the United States and that, when their misfortunes began, Gadhafi’s Libya and Aoun’s Lebanon were even allies of the United States.
Under the administration of George Bush Jr., Vice President Cheney had created a secret group in the White House, charged with defining the development of US energy policy (National Energy Policy Development ). This group was convinced the world was about to face a serious oil shortage. So, if the United States destroyed states, it was in order to exploit the oil of those countries, but not just now but at another time.
In addition, the Rumsfeld-Cebrowski doctrine stipulates that the United States must not fight against globalized powers such as Russia and China but must, on the contrary, give them access to the natural resources of the conquered countries … but forcing them to pay to States United to get that access.
By publishing numerous internal reports from the US military, Julian Assange did not reveal any really sensitive information. But the set of documents revealed shows that the Pentagon never tried to win the wars it waged after September 11.
To fight these wars, the Pentagon secretly equipped itself with clandestine special forces: 60,000 soldiers who do not wear uniforms [ 15 ] and who are capable of assassinating anyone, in any country and without leaving a trace. As early as 2002, the American journalist Bob Woodward revealed the operation called the “Global Attack Matrix “, which had been decided only 3 days after the September 11 attacks [ 16 ] . For his part, Wayne Madsen – also an American – published the names of the first victims in Papua, Nigeria, Indonesia and Lebanon [ 17 ] .
The last 20 years confirmed all my forecasts. Unfortunately, few have clearly seen the evolution of the world. Most people refuse to see the relationship between the revelations from various sources and almost no one wants to see the responsibility of Western democracies in the crimes perpetrated against the countries of the Greater Middle East.
The problem remains the same: hardly anyone can admit that the criminal is so close.

[ 2 ] According to my detractors, I had not been at the scene, as a ” true journalist ” would have had to. But the United States had banned access to the three “crime scenes” for reasons of ” national security ” and for years no journalist, from absolutely no media, had access to them. So the reproach of ” amateurism ” would have to apply not only to me but also to all the journalists who repeated the official version.
