Blackwater USA timeline

After becoming a member of Cooperative Research which amongst others houses the awesome 911 time-line from Paul Thomson, I received an invitation to help with the Blackwater USA time-line. I grasped this offer with both hands, so the coming week or so I will devoting a lot of time to that.

The initial time-line will be based on Jeremy Scahill’s terrifying book on the mercenary army. I can only advise that all of you read it. It is an eyeopener with regards to the malicious growth of privatised cooperate private army beholden to no one but the guys with the biggest wallets.

I am however very interested in any information that people can send us on the subject.
I am endebded to all who can give me information on this scary group, but I prefer information that can be coroborated in any way.


Presenting the crime

On 9/11 2001 four planes took of from airfields in Boston, Newark and Washington and after a short time sharply deviated from their course and over a period of ninety minutes slammed into the two twin towers in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and one had crashed in Pennsylvania.

The attacks killed just under 3000 people and caused the US to descend into its most critical time in history. In an unprecedented fashion the twin towers, two steel framed buildings, designed to withstand multiple plane impacts, collapsed in freefall speed into their own footprint after a mere hour of fire. The buildings crumbled in an astonishing ten seconds into dust and New York was a disaster area, the city had lost hundreds of fireman and police and the air in the city remained toxic for months.

Later that same day a third building collapsed. This was building WTC 7. A office building of 47 floors high had burned for several hours and again, preceded only by the two twin towers had collapsed in freefall speed into its own footprint.

No people were hurt in that collapse. Several buildings that had been closer to the twin towers had been damaged more than that building but apparently building 7 had been weekend by the subsequent fires.

The Pentagon was severely damaged but the plane had hit the site that had just been under redevelopment and they had missed all the top brass, so even though there had been a number of casualties the Pentagon was in full working order.

The fourth plane had crashed in a field in Pennsylvania and the wreckage was found spread over an area of four miles.

The administration of the US engulfed in a warm wave of unprecedented sympathy and compassion for the damaged nation soon realized that this horrific attack gave them the opportunity to do amazing things for their nation and the world. After all there were demonstrations defying the perpetrators of these heinous crimes in as far away as Teheran the capital of fundamentalist Shite Islam, messages of sympathy from another haven for fundamentalist Sunni Saudi Arabia and from every country the peoples of the world grieved with the US over the horror that had befallen this mighty country.

The administration realized that if they choose the path of wisdom than they had in their hands the means of correcting a lot of wrongs. They could lead by example and their restraint would set new standards of world peace and international cooperation. Maybe a peace could be brokered between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The Iranians could be asked not to go ahead with their plans of Uranium enrichment, the North Koreans could be persuaded to join the rest of the world. Perhaps the Chinese could be cajoled into more respect for human rights and perhaps even Somalia and Ethiopia could be convinced to leave their struggles behind. In short they saw a massive opportunity to heal the world through their grief.

So in order to maximize this incredible chance for world peace and justice they reached out to al those countries that had expressed their sympathy and asked them for help.

After the first two intense days after the attacks had past and it had become clear that the rescue mission had become a recovery mission they closed the scene of with the famous yellow crime scene tape and invited CSI teams from all over the world to help them with piecing together what was after all the biggest crime scene the world had ever witnessed.

And so it happened that for the first time in history Americans and Russians, Iranians and Israelis, Somalian and Ethiopian CSI  agents teamed up to investigate the Ground zero crime scene. They worked together in an effort to impartially solve this crime in an effort to help the US to be able to meet out the full extend of the law these crimes deserved.

But wait…that didn’t happen.

Nothing like that happened. Just days after the attacks an unprecedented clean up operation started. The steel from the twin towers and building 7 was fast tracked to Asia to be melted down.

The first responders; the police and the fire brigades and other emergency services made a statement, and that was that. There were barely any witness statements taken. In fact witnesses who wanted to testify about what happened to them found it hard to be heard.

And within months the city was back up and running as normal as could be under the circumstances and the same happened with the Pentagon.

No samples were taken of the crumbled concrete or the steel, and no chemical tests were performed to include or exclude additional reasons that would explain the fast collapse of the only three steel framed buildings to ever collapse after relatively short fires. It had never happened before and it never happened again even though a fire raged for 18 hours in a Madrid building that had been built along the same lines as the twin towers.

In fact only after severe pressure from the public did the administration eventually organize a committee that was given the task of investigating the events of 9/11. The rapport was incomplete and in some cases even misleading.

Instead the world was told the day after 9/11 that 12 mostly Saudi Arabians had hijacked 4 planes on the say so of a man called Osama bin Laden and that they had been able to commit the crime of the century with some box cutters. We were to believe that the most heavily armed country with the most high tech. Defense system in the world could be beaten by twelve guys with box cutters.

Not long after 9/11 the drums of war started to thunder and the world changed for ever.

The real crime of that fateful day still needs to be determined, and that is going to be hard.

I put it to you that the crime is not merely the hijacked planes crashing into the buildings. It’s not limited to the alleged 12 men or Osama bin Laden. To much evidence points in different directions. The bigger picture shows that the crime did not begin early in the morning of 9/11. It did not begin with arrival of the men in the US. It did not even begin with the first thought of it in the mind of Osama bin Laden.
I even doubt that it ever was in the head of Osama bin Laden untill after it happened.

A lot of the hard evidence has been destroyed, but there is footage, witnesses, and even some of the evidence that has not previously found has turned up in the shape of hundreds of fragments of bone that were found on the roof of the German bank. Also there is the meteorite (the molten piece of steel and concrete so nicknamed) and hundreds of people have taken it upon them selves to investigate the crimes of that day, because if the authorities won’t then we have to. It’s that simple. New facts emerge every day and it is only a matter of time before the truth will come out.

As they say you can fool a lot of people sometime, and you can fool some people a lot of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.

Next : profiling the perpetrators

All you need is a crazy rich guy with a private army

The two towers collapsing can only be the result from the impact of the planes and the heat of the burning fuel

Controlled demolition is impossible because the number of people that would have to be involved in the preparation of the demolition would make it impossible to keep that kind of conspiracy secret.

Or is it?

I remember 9/11 as clearly as if it happened yesterday.

My husband and his brother were both on different film sets and I was cleaning the kitchen in preparation of a sunny September day of peace and tranquility.

It wasn’t to be.

As I lived in Holland at the time it was well into the day when my telephone rang and my brother-in-law told me to turn on the TV and tune it to CNN.

I was just in time to see the first building collapse.

I sat down in utter disbelieve and as the collapse played over and over again and the reality began to sink in I remember that apart of being horrified I was also awed by the way the building collapsed. So fast, and so utterly unto itself. Even the towers above the floors were the plane had hit fell upon them selves and I remember thinking that the architects of the buildings must have had a situation like this is mind when they designed some sort of self deconstruct system so that the towers would not fall sideward in case of a plane hitting it. Then the second tower went down and again I was hit by the perfect symmetry of the collapse. There was no denying it, this was no coincidence. I had seen the documentaries about controlled demolition and this was a controlled demolition if there ever was one.

I even pointed it this out to my husband when he came home and we both sat down to watch the horror of the day unfold time, time and again.

We stayed up and even saw the third building go down and again we were struck by the image of perfect implosion. We pondered some time on the genius of the architects to imagine the worst and implement some system that would cause the buildings to collapse upon themselves and thus prevent more damage to New York.

That had to be why the towers had collapsed in virtual freefall upon them selves and this would be explained in the days to come we were sure and sad and exhausted we went to bed.

In the days that followed nothing to this effect was explained and, as the near endless repeats of the towers collapsing were replaced by near endless repeats of fireman and volunteers clearing ground zero, we were told that the towers had collapsed purely because the planes hit the towers and the fuel had melted the inner core, thus causing the collapse of the twin towers. Building seven had been brought down by the fire that had been started by debris from the collapsing towers and that was that.

The next thing we were told was that it was clear that this monumental drama was due to 12 hijackers with box cutters and that they had been able to train for months as pilots on Boeings in the US even though it was clear that they had no previous training and some were down right rotten at it. A man with a long beard living in a cave in the mountains of Afghanistan had put them up to it and it was therefore necessary that the US attack the Taliban.

We on our part had enough on our minds as half our workload disappeared as jobs were pulled in reaction to the attack on New York.

It wasn’t until years later as more and more articles started to appear about an alleged conspiracy on the internet that I began to remember my initial reaction to the collapses. Initially I was very skeptical and the articles were sketchy at best and some of them were pretty outrageous, so I tried to keep a distance but as more and more started to come out it became more and more plausible that perhaps the administration had known about it and not acted upon that knowledge and after it had happened they had been able to use the events as a reason to go to war with Afghanistan and Iraq.

Things like;

How come the buildings fell in freefall to the ground?

How come the planes could stay in the air for as long as they did even when there are always high powered 
jets on stand by and the US is one of the most militarized and well protected countries in the world?

Kept creeping up and the people expressing their doubts were scientists and specialists and they spoke with an authority on their subjects that validated their statements. So I came to be a believer and I am in good company. But what of the more outrages theories. If the buildings had been rigged to collapse as spectacular as they did than who did it. See, now I’m getting on dangerous ground.

I know it is dangerous to write about conspiracies and say that perhaps you find the official story more unlikely that some of the conspiracy theories. Even more dangerous and almost certain to put you on the list of known conspiracy nuts is the one that puts active government involvement on the table.

Most notably the one that states that prior to the planes slamming into the buildings a group of people had been able to rig the buildings in order to let them collapse when the planes hit. And while they were at it they rigged the seventh building for good measure because that building housed dossiers on al the big boys (Enron etc) who had been caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

That was simply to evil and to cynical and besides it was impossible because in order to do that you had to have a large group of people prepared to rig the buildings in the knowledge that they were actively pursuing the death of thousands of people and were would you find such a group prepared to do just that?

But is it? 

Before I continue I would like to state clearly that what you are about to read is merely an idea. It is just something that I came up with the other day and is neither an accusation nor a statement of fact. It is just theorizing and nothing more. 

So, what would it take for the buildings to be so thoroughly demolished as the twin towers and building 7?

1 It would take a highly specialized team at least a couple of months to design and implement the explosives. 
They would have to be prepared to do this work knowing that the collapse could kill tens of thousands of

2. It would take an enormous amount of money and access to the aforementioned explosives.

3. It would take an enormous amount of secrecy.

4. It would take access to the buildings when they were either empty or when the floors that needed to be
rigged were empty.

5. And they would have to have knowledge of the events in advance.

So really all you need is a crazy rich guy with a private army.

I think we can safely assume that there are not enough Americans in even the most seedy government spook departments that would be willing to contribute to the death of some many fellow Americans and I think that it is therefore impossible to assume that it was a government job done by civil servants so subservient to their government that they would cooperate to achieve something so evil.

So what you would actually need is a crazy rich guy with a private army of highly skilled men and woman who have absolutely no scruples when it comes to killing people. A sort of Super Villain that can only exist in a James Bond movie.

Or can he?

Enter a, than little known, firm. And remember; I am only speculating and theorizing here, but the firm is real. This firm was established in 1997, by an ex- Navy Seal.

The name of the firm is Blackwater USA and the Navy Seal who founded it was a man by the name of Eric Prince.

The following is an editorial on the book written by

Jeremy Scahillh
the title. Blackwater USA: the rise of the most powerfull mercenary army.

Meet BLACKWATER USA, the world’s most secretive and powerful mercenary firm. Based in the wilderness of North Carolina, it is the fastest-growing private army on the planet with forces capable of carrying out regime change throughout the world. Blackwater protects the top US officials in Iraq and yet we know almost nothing about the firm’s quasi-military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and inside the US. Blackwater was founded by an extreme right-wing fundamentalist Christian mega-millionaire ex- Navy Seal named Erik Prince, the scion of a wealthy conservative family that bankrolls far-right-wing causes.
Blackwater is the dark story of the rise of a powerful mercenary army, ranging from the blood-soaked streets of Fallujah to rooftop firefights in Najaf to the hurricane-ravaged US gulf to Washington DC, where Blackwater executives are hailed as new heroes in the war on terror. This is an extraordinary exposé by one of America’s most exciting young radical journalists

It seems that such a rich crazy guy with a private army actually exists!

While it only came into prominence when four of its mercenaries were killed in Fallujah, it had been in existence for four years previous to the 9/11 attacks.

In that time it built an army out of ex-marines, Navy seals, explosive experts and soldiers out of countries like Chile who were soldiers under Pinochet. In fact anybody who wants to earn $ 500,- a day and has a suitably psychopathic mindset to want to voluntarily fight and work in war zones, is welcome. Training is provided by Blackwater on secretive sites and they have access to the most modern weapons, planes and more; they have the ear and the protection of the ultra right wing and the high and mighty in the country. They are the biggest contractor to work in Iraq and it is this company and companies like them that make themselves and their employees rich by charging exorbitant fees while the common soldiers earn a pittance while they serve their extended tours of duty. In fact these mercenaries were even contracted to patrol the streets of New Orleans in the wake of Katrina. There is no oversight and there is reason to believe Backwater’s planes are implicated in the secret rendition flights.

So there you have it. A billionaire extreme right wing, born-again Christian with a private army of psychopaths, thugs, explosive specialists, with access to politicians beholden to him because of his massive funding of their election campaigns. A man who has control over an army existing out of arguably the most dangerous and unscrupulous men, who have no allegiance to the USA or it’s citizens and who don’t care if they kill Americans or Iraqis and will take any job regardless of the consequences and morality. A man who may or may not believe in A man in other words who fits the bill.
In July 1996 Perle, Feith, Würmser and his wife write a position paper for then-incoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the Likud Party entitled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm.”

According to Tomgram for it called on Israel to repudiate the Oslo Accords as well as the underlying concept of “land for peace” and to permanently annex the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip. It also recommended that Israel advocate the elimination of Saddam Hussein as a first step toward regime changes in Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.

In 1997 Eric Prince ultra right wing born again Christian (incidentally the same faith as Bush) founds a private army funded with his fathers billions.

In September 2000 the “Project for the New American Century” publishes a book; Rebuilding America’s defenses.

In it the writers, who have close connection to Perle, Feith and assorted other Neocons, stated that what was needed was a “catastrophic and catalyzing event-like a new Pearl Harbor” that would mobilize the public and allow them to put their theories and plans into practice.
September 11 was, of course, precisely what they needed.

So I would like to pose it to you that if you like me like to ponder the theories that surround the awful events on 9/11 than I invite you to mull the previous over.
