And you thought all
the 9/11 WTC wreckage was swept up in eight months and sent to be smelted in
foreign countries or secret places in our own strange land, right? And that the
rest of the rubble was buried in Fresh Kills (appropriate name), Staten Island.
So did I. But now it turns out last remains of the Towers are being stored in
an 80,000-square-foot hangar at JFK International Airport in New York. Ain�t
that a kick in the head?
The previous fact
comes from the fifth paragraph of an article Fragments
of Twin Towers may return to Coatesville by Jennifer Miller at DailyLocal.com. It�s a story about
Coatesville, Pennsylvania, wanting to get some WTC steel �trees� for the future
National Iron & Steel Heritage Museum, to be built in the city�s Lukens
National Historic District. The Graystone Society is the group propelling the
museum project. Well, how nice.
Scot Huston, a
�direct� descendant of the Luken family, president of the Graystone Society,
and Gene DiOrio, Graystone Society vice president, traveled to that JFK hangar
to meet with New York Port Authority officials about bringing some of the
remnants back to Coatesville. That�s even sweeter.
But how about
giving some steel �trees� to some 9-11 scientists and engineers? To see if the
steel is still strong or if there is any evidence of explosives on them or to
test their melting points. I mean since NYPA officials are accommodating these
Coatesville folks, let�s remind them there is a 9-11 Truth Movement concerned
with all these little details in little ole New York City, where the tragedy
occurred. And this movement lives around the nation and the world as well.
So to me, further
sharing of the �trees� for forensic research seems like a modest proposal,
especially in light of some of the darker purposes for which the wreckage is
being shared. Trust me. Nothing�s ever simple concerning 9-11.
Warship built out of Twin Towers Wreckage
Yes, you read
correctly. This fact is from an article
with the subhead�s title. Check the link and see the ship. It�s the
greatest show on earth. This tale, which surfaced on May 22, 2006, from the London Times Online shows and tells us
about The USS New York being built in
New Orleans using some 24 tons of steel taken from the collapsed World Trade
In fact, �after a
brief ceremony in 2003, about seven tons of steel were melted down and poured
into a cast to make the bow section of the ship�s hull.� Are you waiting for
the Empire-State building-like miniatures made of the Towers� lost steel? That
would be the final iron-y, wouldn�t it? Ah, but there�s more. And more. And
Like one shipyard
worker, Tony Quaglino said: he �was going to go in October 2004 after 40 years
here, but I put it off when I found out I could be working on New York. This is sacred and makes me
very proud.� Glen Clement, a paint-superintendent said: �Nobody passes by that
bow section without knocking on it. Everybody knows what it is made from and
what it�s about.� Ah, but Glen, not everybody knows how the original steel got
bent outa shape. May I suggest The 911 WTC
Collapse: An Audio-Video Analysis. Really amazing stuff for all good
Americans. It�s about what really happened. Please, check it out.
Returning to the
ships, another site offers you a chance to play Anchors Away
as you read about defense contractor Northrop Grumman being the builder with
the reused bloody steel. Only they claim �the steel was to be shipped to
Northrop�s shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi.� It ain�t New Orleans. But it
ain�t far. This site claims the 684-foot ship should be ready for service in
2007. It will be the fifth USS New York. The site�s copy reads:
�The brand new
assault craft with a capability of carrying around 800 marines and equipment is
to be named the USS New York,
in tribute to the almost 2,800 people who died in the attacks of September
� . . . The ship
will have the motto �Never Forget�� which sounds more like the Holocaust
imperative, a little Israeli influence? Maybe it could be called the USS Infamy
for the day that lingers in the mind, when all of our defense systems crumbled
like the Towers. But let us not obsess. Let us learn and act and win minds and
hearts. The copy continues . . .
�The recycled steel
from the Twin Towers, if it meets quality standards, will be used to form the
ship's �stem bar.� That is part of the ship's bow, where the vessel cuts the
water.� I love it, the �if it meets quality standards.� It got blown and burned
to smithereens and it�s still going and these idiots are wondering if it�ll
meet quality standards. The question is, do they? And catch this lack of
�New York authorities have
the awesome problem of disposing of the 1.62 million tons of rubble that
went to the nearby Fresh Kills landfill from the World Trade Center site. Some
memorial sculptures made from recycled steel have been commissioned by the
city, and tribute sculptures have now been erected in many civic and private
facilities throughout the country.�
problem� they have is 1.62 million tons of steel and not a ton for testing? I
mean it sounds like they don�t know what to do with it. Why not shove some of
it up the perpetrators� collective ass, after we put a nice point on it. And
then let us test a few thousand tons of it, every which way we can. This is
live evidence which can serve for justice to the dead.
Then let us return
to the ship-building and Northrop Grumman, actually on the banks of the
Mississippi, which survived Katrina, another irony: the South�s 911.
Northrop�s Building Four 911-themed Assault
Ships at a Billion Each
Not only will we
have a USS New York to go after bin
Laden, ha ha, and memorialize the infamy, we will also have a USS Arlington, named after that section
of the Pentagon where the missile, I mean, airliner hit. And we�ll have a USS Somerset, in memory of that place in
rural Pennsylvania where United Flight 93 or some other plane was shot out of
the air by two F-16�s and a white military jet.
Forget about the
fighting with the terrorists. If they were there, they didn�t know what hit
them either. Badaboom, the plane
exploded right in the air, seen eight miles away by all kinds of eyewitnesses.
So our USS New York will be the $1 billion pork
chop for the military-industrial complex, �one of a new generation of
amphibious assault ships capable of landing a 700-strong Marines assault force
on a coastline almost anywhere without the need for a port.� So watch out
everybody, everywhere, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, Far Rockaway. Here we come.
In fact, Woody Oge
(not Ogre), Northrop Grumman�s director of ops in New Orleans, �was keen to
play down suggestions that the ship might be used to spearhead invasions.� It
went something like, yeah, we�re building it to deliver humanitarian assistance
as much as for war. Why, one such ship, the USS
Boxer (not named after Barbara) was dispatched to deal with the aftermath
of Katrina. And we all know how good that turned out, right Woody? Barf.
And even though the
hurricane whooped through the shipyard last summer, the half-done New York survived intact. But a lot of
black and white people drowned and lost their homes forever and a day. And some
workers are living at the shipyard in the bebop �Camp Katrina.�
Earl Jones, one of
the working dudes says that after eight months the Ninth Ward still isn�t
rebuilt. �The insurance company won�t even talk to us. We�re having to hire
lawyers to chase �em. I don�t like this, but I don�t want to be out of work.�
Mr. Jones in his
infinite workingman�s wisdom says he does not want his old home enshrined in a
billion dollar fighting machine. Me either, Mr. Jones. Not one frigging bit.
But he does say, re his crib, a small check from the insurance company might
help. Good luck, my brother, good luck.
Hey, all you 9-11
Truth fighters, let�s get our hands on
some of that steel. I know the way to Kennedy. Pick you up tomorrow morning.
Let�s go picket the airport till they show us. What do we have to lose but our
loss? And what do we have to gain but the cold blue steel to win?
