After writing 9/11�s history
of tragic events, I received a stream of reader emails detailing events
I�d missed. The most notable and telling occurred on September 11, 1990, at
9:09 p.m., 11 years before the apocalypse. How are those numbers for
The case in point was
the date, time and content of former President George H W Bush�s address to a
joint session of Congress and the nation, "Towards a New World
Order," beating the World War Drum to jump on Saddam Hussein as he
grabbed for Kuwait and all that Gulf Oil. It trumpeted the Persian Gulf War,
just as 9/11/2001 played Pearl Harbor to �The War on Terror.�
In paragraph 7, the
address states: �We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The
crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity
to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times,
our fifth [column?] objective -- a new world order -- can emerge: a new era --
freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more
secure in the quest for peace . . ."
If that�s not enough, it is �An era in which the nations of
the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this
elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that
new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we've
known. . . ."
And it is, �A world where the rule of law supplants the rule
of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for
freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak.
This is the vision that I shared with President Gorbachev in Helsinki. He and
other leaders from Europe, the Gulf, and around the world understand that how
we manage this crisis today could shape the future for generations to come.�
What is most interesting
was how GHWG was suckering the whole world into joining forces for his oil grab
against a leader, Saddam Hussein, which he had installed as the Don of Iraq,
subsequently providing nuclear, bio and chemical weapons (WMD) to aid in
Hussein�s soon-to-be war with Iran, which would last for nine years, destroy a
million Middle Easterners and displace another 2 million. It would also
bankrupt Hussein, which would lead to his wolf-like slouch to gobble Kuwait,
where he was, after being allowed to enter, pounced on by the World Powers, who
also needed their fix of daily oil as well.
The philosophy is exactly the opposite of Junior�s, which
led the US into the Iraq war against the wish of the UN and with a Coalition of
the Willing that was like the bench team of the real team that accompanied Papa
into battle. Also, Papa�s war had been sculpted not to be illegal, or
preemptive, but a righteous reaction to the demonized Hussein . . .
�Vital issues of principle are at stake. Saddam Hussein is
literally trying to wipe a country off the face of the Earth. We do not
exaggerate. Nor do we exaggerate when we say Saddam Hussein will fail. Vital economic interests are at risk as
well. Iraq itself controls some 10 percent of the world's proven oil
reserves. Iraq plus Kuwait controls twice that. An Iraq permitted to swallow
Kuwait would have the economic and military power, as well as the arrogance, to
intimidate and coerce its neighbors -- neighbors who control the lion's share
of the world's remaining oil reserves. We cannot permit a resource so vital to
be dominated by one so ruthless. And we won't.� And they didn�t.
Now watch how beautifully Bush Sr. sets up the myriad people
of the world (even Muslims) following our leadership.
�Recent events have
surely proven that there is no substitute for American leadership. In the face
of tyranny, let no one doubt American credibility and reliability. Let no one
doubt our staying power. We will stand by our friends. One way or another, the
leader of Iraq must learn this fundamental truth. From the outset, acting hand
in hand with others, we've sought to fashion the broadest possible
international response to Iraq's aggression. The level of world cooperation and
condemnation of Iraq is unprecedented. Armed forces from countries spanning
four continents are there at the request of King Fahd of Saudi Arabia to deter
and, if need be, to defend against attack. Moslems and non-Moslems, Arabs and
non-Arabs, soldiers from many nations stand shoulder to shoulder, resolute
against Saddam Hussein's ambitions. . . ." And here comes the One World
United National Security Council backing . . .
�We can now point to
five United Nations Security Council resolutions that condemn Iraq's
aggression. They call for Iraq's immediate and unconditional withdrawal, the
restoration of Kuwait's legitimate government, and categorically reject Iraq's
cynical and self-serving attempt to annex Kuwait. Finally, the United Nations
has demanded the release of all foreign nationals held hostage against their
will and in contravention of international law. It is a mockery of human
decency to call these people ``guests.'' They are hostages, and the whole world
knows it.� And so it goes, adding that . . .
�Higher oil prices
slow our growth, and higher defense costs would only make our fiscal deficit
problem worse. That deficit was already greater than it should have been -- a
projected $232 billion for the coming year. It must -- it will -- be reduced.�
What, a mere $232 billion deficit? Why that would peanuts for his boy Jr. Bill
Clinton would outdo that and leave a $260 billion surplus for Jr., who would
blow that too in no time. And so, GHWB exhorts all . . .
�To my friends in
Congress, together we must act this very month -- before the next fiscal year
begins on October 1st -- to get America's economic house in order. The Gulf
situation helps us realize we are more economically vulnerable than we ever
should be. Americans must never again enter any crisis, economic or military,
with an excessive dependence on foreign oil and an excessive burden of Federal
debt.� Alas and alack, we are now even deeper in the crude do than ever, paying
about $100 per barrel these days, after having torn Iraq to pieces, and buried
ourselves in record debt.
But read the entire
document yourself. The ironies abound, like the date and time of the speech
itself. Going forward in time, four years and a day later, we find another head
September 12, 1994 . . .
Frank Eugene Corder
crashes a stolen Cessna into the south lawn of the White House . . .
sources below detail the circumstances, including that the �disturbed� Corder
somehow managed to �evade� radar to crash-land on the lawn. The bottom line
would seem to be: Even the President of the United States isn�t safe in his own
house and (subtext) not above the power of the New World Order. Or was this a failed
coup? The story goes on . . .
1994: A man, flying a stolen Cessna airplane, entered the prohibited airspace
around the White House just before 2 a.m. After passing over the Ellipse, the
man, identified as Frank Eugene Corder, crashed on the lawn just south of the
Executive Mansion. The plane struck a tree near the South Portico steps and hit
a corner on the first floor of the White House. President Clinton and his
family were not in the residence at the time. Corder was killed in the crash."
"Over the years
questions have been raised about White House security, given that it is located
in a major urban area easily accessible to pedestrians. Attacks on the
compound, surrounded by guardhouses and a 10-foot iron fence, have been
attempted. In September 1994, a small plane piloted by a disturbed Maryland man
evaded radar and crash-landed on the South lawn. The pilot died and no one else
was injured." --Cincinnati
White House has been scene of attacks,
violence many times
"Suicide was the
apparent motive of the man who crashed his small, single-engine Cessna plane
into the White House the previous month.� Why didn�t he just hang himself then?
�The air space over
the White House is restricted to all air traffic (it's known as Area P-56, and
helicopter tours through it are never permitted). But just before 2 a.m. on
Sept. 12, 1994, Frank Eugene Corder, a 38-year-old truck driver from Maryland
under the influence of alcohol and cocaine, flew a stolen Cessna 150L low down
17th Street, a block from the White House, made a U-turn near the Washington
Monument and flew into the White House.
�His plane struck the mansion two stories below Clinton's bedroom,
although the first family was not in the residence then. Secret Service
agents had to scramble out of the way, and the plane damaged a giant magnolia
tree planted by former President Andrew Jackson. Corder was killed. His
relatives said he had been distraught over the breakup of his third marriage
and his father's death. He had reportedly said his life was so hopeless that he
might as well ram a plane into the White House.� That seems to be a total
�Radar didn't spot
the small plane, and that fact frightened officials because it could have been
loaded with explosives. There have been commercial airlines that have flown
directly over the White House in violation of federal law; the number of such
violations has doubled each year since 1996.
Trying to improve
security at the White House, officials have changed some landing patterns at
nearby Reagan National Airport. But the missiles that protect the White House
have never been fired out of fear that they might strike a downtown city
Flight of the Intruder; A disturbed man's crash on the
South Lawn exposes the White House's vulnerability to sneak air
Corder seemed to know exactly how he wanted to die. Sometime before midnight on Sept. 11, he stole [?] a
single-engine plane from an airport north of Baltimore headed south to
Washington, flew over the National Zoological Park and down to the Mall,
probably using the Washington Monument as a beacon. As he neared the famed
obelisk, he banked a tight U-turn over the Ellipse, came in low over the White
House South Lawn, clipped a hedge, skidded across the green lawn that girds the
South Portico and crashed into a wall two stories below the presidential
bedroom. Corder was killed on impact." --Time (09/26/94)�
Who was Corder?
Wikipedia tells us,
Corder was �An unemployed
driver and honorably discharged U.S. Army veteran from Perry Point, Maryland,
Corder had lost his wife to cancer several weeks prior to the incident, which is thought
to have driven him towards suicide. Friends claim he bore no ill will towards President Bill
Clinton and likely only wanted the publicity of the stunt. The President
was not even in the mansion at the time due to renovations, but was instead
staying at Blair House.�
Again, why didn�t Corder slash his wrists, take sleeping pills, leap from a
tall building? How on earth does he find satisfaction only in trying to slam
into the White House?
�He stole the Cessna on the night of September
11 and departed from Aldino Airport in Maryland
severely intoxicated, which is presumed to have led to his later
miscalculation. The plane was noticed by radar technicians at National
Airport several minutes before he tried to steer it into the wall of the
White House. At 1:49 a.m., he hit the South Lawn and died on impact.
�The crash caused a re-evaluation in security procedures around the White
House, as the pilot had entered restricted airspace. Though the White House was
reportedly equipped with surface-to-air missiles, none were fired.�
Doesn�t this sound like 9/11 and the Pentagon all over again? What with
that strange White Jet flying around the White House, and good old Flight 93
out there over Pennsylvania, en route to possibly the White House? And did
anyone ever see Corder�s body and check it for alcohol, cocaine, etc.? Is there
a coroner�s forensic report? And then we have no missiles being fired from the
most symbolically American building on earth, the White House, just as with the
most powerful building on earth, the Pentagon? Ah, and speaking of the
Pentagon, here�s a 9/11 event that reminds me of that fortress. Wikipedia again reports .
Ground broken for Pentagon construction
on September 11, 1941.
�Colonel Leslie Groves was responsible for overseeing the
project in 1940-42, and his administrative ability, drive and forcefulness led
to his nomination to head the Manhattan
Project in 1942. It is the highest-capacity office building in the world
and largest by floor area. It houses approximately 23,000 military and civilian
employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel. It has five sides,
five floors above ground (plus two basement levels), and five ring corridors
per floor with a total of 17.5 miles (28.2 kilometers) of corridors.�
But let�s flash forward to 1970
and something really interesting? . . .
Sept 6-12, 1970: Hundreds held in series
of airliner hijacks
�Four New York-bound
airliners have been hijacked over western Europe in an unprecedented operation
carried out by a militant Palestinian group. Three of the planes taken over by
the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) have been flown to two
different locations in the Middle East.�
�One of the hijackers
is dead and the other in custody after the crew and passengers on the fourth
jet foiled the attack. The PFLP have demanded the release of three Arab
dissidents held in a Swiss jail in return for the 382 passengers they are

�The TWA and Swissair

�On the El Al flight

to get onto the flight deck.

Palestinian hijackers stealing four airliners they subsequently blow up, some
31 years before 9/11/2001. It sounds like someone is reading from a playbook.
Let�s flash forward. From Killtown�s 9/11 coincidences
and oddities page:
�September 11, 1997 -- Stratesec, Inc., a security firm where
George H.W. Bush's son Marvin is a board member and who's contracted with the
WTC, Dulles Airport, United Airlines, Los Alamos National Laboratories, goes
public.� Well, he�s certainly public now!
founded as Securacom (formerly the engineering firm Burns and Roe Securacom).
�Marvin Bush was
reelected to the Stratesec board of directors annually from 1993 through 1999.
His last reelection was on May 25, 1999, for July 1999 to June 2000.
described itself this way: �Stratesec, Incorporated, is a fully integrated
single source security systems company. The company provides consulting and
planning, engineering and design, systems integration, and maintenance and
technical support services to commercial and government clients worldwide.
Stratesec has completed security projects for airports, corporations, utilities,
prisons, universities, and federal, state and local governments.
�When Securacom went public on September 11, 1997, its
prospectus for the Initial Public Offering prominently featured photographs of
its clients the World Trade Center and Dulles airport, with a client list that
included United Airlines and Los Alamos National Laboratories." -- Washington Spectator (02/15/05)

And to round out a terrifying storybook even more, say goodnight, Bill

And flashing forward
one more time to the apocalypse, here�s a wretched wrinkle.
September 14, 2001 from Fox News
Asbestos Could Have
Saved WTC Lives
�Asbestos fibers in the air and rubble
following the collapse of the World Trade Center is adding to fears in the
aftermath of Tuesday�s terrorist attack. The true tragedy in the asbestos
story, though, is the lives that might have been saved but for 1970s-era
hysteria about asbestos.
�Until 30 years ago,
asbestos was added to flame-retardant sprays used to insulate steel building
materials, particularly floor supports. The insulation was intended to delay
the steel from melting in the case of fire by up to four hours.
�In the case of the
World Trade Center, emergency plans called for this four-hour window to be used
to evacuate the building while helicopters sprayed to put out the fire and
evacuated persons from the roof.
"The use of
asbestos ceased in the 1970s following reports of asbestos workers becoming ill
from high exposures to asbestos fibers. The Mt. Sinai School
of Medicine�s Irving Selikoff had reported that asbestos workers had
higher rates of lung cancer and other diseases. Selikoff then played a key role
in the campaign to halt the use of asbestos in construction.
In 1971, New
York City banned the use of asbestos in spray fireproofing. At that
time, asbestos insulating material had only been sprayed up to the 64th floor
of the World Trade Center towers."
This fact, that the
Towers had to come down, may have turned out to be one of the major reasons the
Towers did go down. They couldn�t have come down legally from internal
demolition because the asbestos would spread all over the town, as it
subsequently did. They could have been disassembled the Towers, but the cost
would have run in the billions. Yet, a double airliner crash into them,
propelled by �fanatic Muslims� at the helms, that would be another story,
certainly an incredibly profitable story, from the people who brought you all
the rest of these 9/11 stories, the New World Bilderberger Order. Ouch!
The question is,
what�s next in the playbook?
