Planting the Seed for 9/11 In The American Mind

The first seed for a 9/11-type terrorist attack was planted in the 1978 movie The Medusa Touch

In the surreal world of Hollywood movies, sometimes fantasy may sow a seed for a future reality. Such was the case with a 1978 movie starring Richard Burton, where the first 9/11 seed was planted in The Medusa Touch. Burton plays the part of a man who possesses the power to cause disasters simply by thinking about them. In the following horrifying scene, Burton causes a passenger plane to crash into a New York skyscraper. (A US VPN is needed to view this clip.)

Because The Medusa Touch was made in the late seventies when no CGI was available, elaborate models were constructed to simulate an aircraft crashing into a skyscraper.

To create a highly realistic visual impact, great thought would have gone into building and working with these models. After watching the video clip, it seems to me that the plane crashing into the skyscraper on set is far more realistic than what we saw played over and over on television screens around the world on 9/11 when a plane ‘appeared’ to slice through thick steel beams like a hot knife through butter.

Above, a ‘plane’ appears ‘buried’ up to the engines, and carries on through the building to emerge on the other side with not so much as a flattened cockpit.
The ‘cockpit’ coming out the other side of the WTC tower without so much as a dent in it’s nose. How did it do that?

With a passenger jet’s fuselage made of aluminum, common sense should tell us that a plane could not possibly slice through the thick steel columns (below) that formed a protective heavy duty ‘net’ around both WTC towers.

Above is one of the WTC towers under construction. Note how thick the steel beams are and how closely together they are placed, which shows why the windows were so narrow. The WTC Towers were constructed to withstand the impact of a large passenger jet fully loaded. Instead, it looks like Hollywood and the Defense Department colluded to pull off this smoke and mirrors trick to create an image of a plane slicing through these columns as if they were made of chocolate – not brittle chocolate, but soft chocolate.

In the split second after the ‘plane’ disappears inside the building, a round hole and a few puffs of white smoke is the only ‘evidence’ that something has penetrated the South Tower.

As with magicians, everything happens so quickly we don’t see their sleight of hand. Television stations played this scene over and over again as if to convince us that a plane actually could slice right through the thick steel construction. I had to take numerous screen shots to slow the action down enough to work out what really took place. From the above screen shot, it is obvious that a plane did not go through the steel columns, as there is only a relatively small hole there, as seen in the Pentagon that day also.

What really hit the Pentagon on 9/11?

So what made that hole? Perhaps the following video clip may make it clearer as to what hit the South Tower.

After the hole appeared in the South Tower, with a few puffs of smoke, there was an explosion (below).

Hopefully it should be clear now that there is no way a passenger jet could have withstood such an impact with the WTC Towers and instead, should have looked more like the crash in The Medusa Touch (below), where the passenger jet exploded on impact with the building, sending plane parts flying through the air within a ball of flames.

The following image shows what part of a Boeing 777 passenger jet’s fuselage looks like after crashing to the ground from over 30,000 feet.

However, instead of a plane exploding into pieces on impact with a building constructed to withstand such an impact, an unrealistic image of a whole plane slicing through thick steel columns was played over and over again on 9/11 as if to convince us that such a feat was possible. Not only that, but the plane was able to travel right through the center of the building and burst through the thick steel beams on the other side with not so much as a dent in the cockpit’s nose. It simply beggars belief!

To my mind, New York became a giant Hollywood studio on 9/11 and although a lot of real people were killed during the making of this ‘movie’, the special effects, although impressive, considerably stretch the imagination.

In another video taken from a helicopter near the WTC Towers after the North Tower is hit, you can’t see a plane approaching the South Tower. Instead it looks more like a ball (seen from the top left at 1:53) coming at the tower, and when it hits, there is an explosion. At 5:28, after the South Tower has collapsed, numerous puffs of smoke are visible (as seen from explosives used in a controlled demolition) at the top of the North Tower before it, too, collapses into its own footprint.

This is the best example I have seen so far of the trickery involved in the biggest deceit ever perpetrated – not by bin Laden, or Muslims with box cutters, but by a small secret team within the US government. As bin Laden called it, “a government within the government.” But perhaps this is stretching your worldview too much. Check out the video.

I will discuss the trickery used to make the ‘plane-shaped’ hole in the North Tower in another post. For now it is important to give some background to The Medusa Touch, keeping in mind that 9/11 heralded the beginning of the War on Terror that was later predicted to last for decades.

The producer of The Medusa Touch (1978) was Arnon Milchan, a former Israeli intelligence operative. In the mid-1980s Milchan was caught smuggling components for Israel’s illegal nuclear arsenal, but not indicted. [1] Milchan then became a Hollywood movie mogul. He was a producer for Oliver Stone’s movie, JFK, during which Stone became increasingly frustrated at having to rewrite and rewrite parts of the script. That is why the movie didn’t tell the truth, the whole truth…

In 1979 Benjamin Netanyahu and his father created the Netanyahu Institute on Terrorism and held an international conference in Jerusalem to start the global propaganda push for a “War on Terror.” [2] George H.W. Bush also attended this conference.

In 1980 Isser Harel of Mossad predicted a 9/11 scenario with this chilling message.

“Terrorism will come to you in America. America has the power but not the will, to fight terrorism. The terrorists have the will, but not the power, to fight America – but all that could change with time. Arab oil money buys more than tents.

As to the where…New York city is the symbol of freedom and capitalism. It’s likely they will strike the Empire State Building, your tallest building and a symbol of your power.

In 1982, Oded Yinon [3] outlined the Israeli plan for a Greater Israel to take over the area from the Nile to the Euphrates, and in the process to carve up the Middle East into small states Israel could easily control. In former Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s words, “Our conflict is with the entire Muslim world, with the entire Arab world.” [4] Since Iraq was regarded as the lynchpin of the Middle East, it had to be taken out first to unravel the rest of it. But to accomplish this, Menachem Begin, the leader of the terrorist group Irgun who became, and was, Israel’s Prime Minister at the time The Medusa Touch was made (1977-1983), would need a lot of help.

It appears that the neoconservatives who began to infiltrate the White House at the same time would become more than happy to oblige, and this brings us to another ‘seed’ planted in the American mind. On 4 March 2001, the Murdoch-owned Fox Network aired the first of a 13-part series of The Lone Gunmen called Pilot. It is about a computer hacker working for a small clique within the government, who takes control of a Boeing 727 passenger plane with the intention of crashing it into the World Trade Center. Of course, foreign dictators would then take responsibility for it and beg to be smart-bombed…

And then…on 9/11/01 the stuff that only belonged in movies or on TV screens became the ‘real thing’ after all the warnings were ignored. No, I don’t mean the movie warnings if you could call them such, but the warnings made to the CIA and directly to President Bush. Susan Lindauer was warned by her CIA handler in the late summer or early fall of 2001. In an open letter to President Trump that appeared in the American Herald Tribune on 30 July 2018, she stated:

“Though it’s impossible for most Americans to grasp to this day, without question US Intelligence possessed advance knowledge of the 9/11 attack in its precise configuration…

“In precise detail, I told Godfrey, my closest friend in Washington, that the CIA expected a major terrorist attack involving airplane hijackings and/or airplane bombings to strike the World Trade Center, as a known target in New York. The attack – according to the CIA’s advance knowledge that was shared with me – could possibly include a mini-nuclear device to bring down the Towers.” [5]

President Putin warned President George W. Bush on 09 September 2001 that a terrorist attack plotted in Afghanistan was imminent, according to George Beebee, a senior Bush-era CIA analyst. [6]

Bill Cooper also warned of a coming terrorist threat on 6 June 2001:

“And now we are being bombarded with messages that Osama Bin Laden is planning to attack the United States of America. And I’m telling you, be prepared for a major attack. But it won’t be Osama Bin Laden, it will be those behind the New World Order. It is very likely that they will stage a terrorist attack and it is going to be big enough that Marshall law could be declared.”

On the morning of 9/11, after the Twin Towers had collapsed, and before Building 7 experienced the same fate (even though not hit by a plane), three people interviewed at a critical time when Americans were traumatized and wanting answers to what was happening, the following interviews revealed what would become the ‘official 9/11 story’.  This meant that trauma would deeply embed the ‘official story’, making it difficult for people to erase from their minds despite new evidence to the contrary.

After the U.S. sent in troops to Afghanistan – supposedly to capture or assassinate Osama bin Laden – the war drums started beating again, this time to go to war with Iraq. Six years later we would learn from General Wesley Clark that the U.S. wanted to take out another six Middle Eastern countries that like Iraq, had nothing to do with the attacks on the World Trade Center.

As General Wesley Clark pointed out at the beginning of the above video, there was a “foreign policy coup” in America. A hard core group of neoconservatives took charge, including at the time Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, who still remain in charge of foreign policy today no matter who becomes president of the United States. Effectively this keeps President Trump mired in the swamp he declared he was going to drain. Thankfully today he told John Bolton, “You’re fired!”

So what did Donald Trump have to say about the attack on the Twin Towers on 11 September 2001?

Many clever tricks were used on the Hollywood set in New York on 9/11. Rebekah Roth exposes part of the role Israeli ‘art students’ played.

And this brings us back to where it started – in Israel under the leadership of Menachem Begin beginning in 1977. Of special interest is that Begin’s gang of Irgun terrorists were responsible for bombing the King David Hotel in July 1946, killing 91 people.

“Members of the Irgun, which carried out scores of terror bombings in the 1930s and 40s (and its political successors in the Likud party) hold the world view that “political violence and terrorism” are “legitimate tools in the Jewish national struggle for the Land of Israel,” according to Arie Perliger and Leonard Weinberg.” [7]

However, this view was not held by everyone who supported the birth of a Jewish State in Palestine. Although money was raised in the United States to support the terrorist groups of Irgun and LEHI (Stern Gang) in their bid to cleanse Palestine of its Arab inhabitants and British occupiers, a rebuttal came from Albert Einstein when Mr. Shepard Rifkin, who was the executive director after the UN Partition of Palestine, requested his financial support for the Stern Gang’s activities. [8]

Journalist and long-time 9/11 researcher, Christopher Bollyn points out that:

“Begin’s party of Zionist terrorists became the Likud party, which is run today by the sons and daughters of the Irgun.  The father of Clinton’s right-hand man and Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, for example, was a partisan in Begin’s terrorist organization before coming to the United States in the 1950s.  These are the Zionist terrorists behind the false-flag terror attacks of 9/11, which were already being planned by Menachem Begin and his Irgun terrorists in the late 1970s when they came to power in Israel.” [9]

Little wonder that a seed was planted that would take root and eventually grow into something even more monstrous.
