In the days after the 9.11 attack, virtually every television newscast in America was filled with disclaimers from the owners of the Florida flight schools which trained the hijacker pilots, hammering home the message that they only taught how to fly light planes, which in no way prepared anyone to fly jetliners, and were thus innocent of any wrongdoing.
But based on a newly-discovered brochure for a flight school owned by Rudi Dekkers and Wally Hilliard (right), whose school taught both pilots who crashed airliners into the World Trade Center, the MadCowMorningNews has discovered evidence that the assertion is untrue.
A copy of a brochure from Hilliard and Dekkers’ Naples flight school, Ambassador Airways, was sent to us by a pilot and former marine who said he was fed up with corruption in Florida. The brochure, shockingly, states the flight school offers “Professional Flight Training” in the form of an “ATP Flight and Ground Training Package” which meets the “aeronautical experience requirements” necessary to become an airline transport (ATP) pilot.
The designation allows pilots to get jobs flying jets at regional carriers around the world, and may explain how Atta came into possession of an airline pilot's uniform he was said to have worn.
The 9/11 Investigation? What 9/11 investigation?
Breaking the big taboo
The new discovery highlights the inadequacy of the various 9.11 investigations while throwing a spotlight once again on the murky backgrounds and potential criminality of the individuals in the U.S., Rudi Dekkers and Wallace J. Hilliard, who hosted the terrorist hijackers. The two men are already the subject of the biggest censored story of the nascent 21st century, to wit:
Just three weeks after Mohamed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi arrived on July 3, 2000 to attend the flight school at Huffman Aviation in Venice, FL., the owner of the flight school, Wallace J. Hilliard, had his Learjet surrounded by DEA agents with submachine guns on the runway of Orlando Executive Airport.
Agents found 43 pounds of heroin, arrested everyone onboard, and confiscated the plane.
Any honest prosecutor in the country would have instantly linked the huge heroin haul discovered on the flight school owner’s plane to Mohamed Atta’s arrival at his flight school, and understood that he was looking into the heart of a continuing criminal conspiracy.
Before 9/11, someone with big clout in the Bush Administration was buying heroin from Osama bin Laden.
It’s a slam dunk case. But nothing happened. That’s why it’s the biggest censored story of the 21st Century…because almost the only place you can read about it is here.
As it happens, having an address at Huffman Aviation at the Venice Airport apparently is the “green light from the DEA” we were told about by airport executives in Venice, as witnessed by the recent seizure of 5.5 tons of cocaine on a DC9 owned by a company which once used Huffman’s address.
Although 5.5 tons of cocaine would seem to rate at least mild interest from American law enforcement, the Tampa DEA refuses to comment. The company’s owner appears to have no fear of being picked up anytime soon, even just for questioning.
What’s going on? Let’s take a look.
"An intersection to be avoided at all cost"
The obvious truth visible to almost everyone after the 9.11 attack was that the U.S. Government immediately began feverishly covering up and withholding from the public as much information as they dared.
The Heroin Connection to 9/11 is a compelling explanation for this cover-up.
Moreover, the drug connection was uncovered independently in two different places: by our investigation in Venice, FL., and by FBI translator Sibel Edmonds in Washington D.C.
"The 9/11 terror plot intersected with the activities of a drug trafficking network of international scope, in ways that form a "crystal clear" picture of what was going on,” said Edmonds.
Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft went to the Supreme Court to silence FBI translator Sibel Edmonds, to keep her from revealing what she had learned in translated documents, which, as she has stated, indicate that the State Department was covering up a drug trafficking network associated with the 9.11 attack.
Ashcroft apparently never felt the need to race before the U.S. Supreme Court to silence speculation about suspicious trading in the days before the attack, or explosives at the World Trade Center, or “pods” underneath the wings of the 767’s that crashed into the Twin Towers.
"Dude… All that glisters is not gold"
Everybody knows most of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan.
Everyone, that is, except for the DEA, the FBI, the 9/11 Commission, the Joint Congressional Committee on Intelligence, and the discredited phony 9.11 Truth Movement, which would like to presume to speak for those questioning the official account.
This includes Chief Shill Michael Ruppert, who will always be remembered for steering questioning of the government's official story into the safe waters of propositions completely irrelevant to a homicide investigation, like Peak Oil, and half-crazed former spooks at whose feet Ruppert sat, pen in hand.
Ruppert no longer wishes to be involved with the 9.11 Truth Movement, but it is, was, and always will be his tar baby. He has left the country for Venezuela, where he will now presumably attempt to do to Hugo Chavez’s Government what he did to independent investigation in the U.S. into the CIA’s links to drug trafficking and the 9.11 attack: subvert from within.
Also included in this cover-up, painful to say, is CIA-Drug doyenne Peter Dale Scott. His conspicuous silence on the proven ties to international heroin trafficking of the owner of Mohamed Atta's Florida flight school speaks volumes.
Scott is also silent, we recently noticed, on flight school owner Wally Hilliard's demonstrated ties to Adnan Khashoggi, about whom he wrote much of a slim volume last year, perhaps understandably preferring to focus instead on the Saudi billionaire’s links to mobsters more conveniently located…like overseas.
A remote-controlled hologram, sure.
Nor will you find anything about the 9/11 Heroin Connection on the innumerable websites of the utterly self-referential “9/11 Truth Movement,” which currently proclaims itself utterly fascinated with speculation about materials which might have been secreted inside the Twin Towers that could have made them collapse.
These same people used to proclaim themselves utterly fascinated with speculation that no plane hit the Pentagon; before that they were utterly fascinated with speculation that the hijacked planes had been flown by remote control; with the thought that it all might have been a hologram; with the idea that there weren’t any Arab hijackers on the planes; or, with the supposition that if there were–perish the thought!–Arabs onboard, they must have been patsies.
If there hadn’t already been hundreds of Arab suicide bombers, there might be a rationale for questioning the motives of the 19 hijackers. As it is, there is none. But the argument isn't meant to be defensible…but merely to divert attention.
Controlling the debate is easy when a billionaire is footing the bill.
Advantage Adnan Khashoggi.
'The boys 'will be 'the boys'
It was to obscure the 9.11 Heroin Connection that minions of Saudi billionaire and CIA “fixer” Adnan Khashoggi, like Mars & Venus author John Gray, began to spread money around to assorted easily-corrupted dupes, idiots and government shills who quickly came to lead the misnamed 9.11 Truth Movement, which is neither a movement nor concerned with the truth.
“My suspicions were aroused when the keynote speech was given by ‘relationship guru’ John Gray," German author Matthias Broeckers told us. "In a conference on 9/11, what does “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” have to teach us about the identities of those responsible for murdering 3000 human beings?”
“Michel Chossudovsky told me he’d learned of the International 9/11 Inquiry’s shady financing two weeks before the conference,” Broeckers continued. “He demanded the organizers dump Gray. They told him not to spread ‘bad vibrations.”
“Then someone told me he had ‘donated’ money to the Inquiry, and things began to become clear.”
“To say that John Gray is in business with Adnan Khashoggi doesn’t portray the relationship in quite the right light,” stated another observer, asking to remain anonymous. “Khashoggi owns John Gray. He bought his whole Mars-Venus shtick, his company. Gray works for him.”
If true, this offers a possible explanation for Gray’s interest in the 9/11 inquiry. Khashoggi may have told him that “Terrorists Are From Jupiter.”
Fey, sure, but rich and useful
Fey author John Gray’s business, as earlier reported, was owned by Adnan Khashoggi. Before Khashoggi purchased his “Mars and Venus” book (and Gray’s services), it was well on its way, if it wasn't already there, to the remainder tables.
The no-doubt eternally grateful Gray may also be involved, as one of a dozen “John Does,” in what has been called "the biggest securities fraud in American history,” a Khashoggi-led scam involving a company which produced infomercials for Gray, called Genesis Intermedia.
These scamsters ties to American intelligence are clear and unmistakable…
One example: Barry Seal was the chief pilot—until his assassination in 1986, reportedly at Vice President Bush’s behest—in the weapons-and-drug scandal that came to be known as Iran Contra.
As the Iran Contra probe showed, Adnan Khashoggi played a key role in brokering the illegal weapons trafficking from the United States to Iran.
Years later, Barry Seal's longtime attorney incorporated Genesis Intermedia.
Years after that, Khashoggi and company used the stock of Genesis Intermedia, and one other company, to steal $320 million dollars.
The other company whose stock was used to steal millions was called Holiday RV Stores. It belonged to Miami attorney Michael Farkas, better known as the founder of the company which owned the DC9 recently busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine onboard.
Small world. No wonder they end up marrying their cousins. (It explains the big ears.)
"Alien Locusts ate my homework."
Because of the presence of an absurdly-large contingent of people belonging to truly bizarre cults, one researcher has suggested the 9.11 "Truth Movement" might more accurately be called the 9.11 UFO Cult.
Put to music, it could be called “The March of the Shills.”
Lest anyone believe we are exaggerating when describing the whacked-out UFOnauts and true believers who comprise the core constituency, we'll relate a bit of one conversation we had, with a particularly obstreperous gentleman, one of what we have come to know as “The Thermite Fascists.”
In an email bristling with hostility he demanded we admit that explosives had been placed in the World Trade Center before the attack. Otherwise I must perforce explain to him how terrorists could possibly have made WTC Building 7 fall.
Before replying, we did a quick search and discovered, as we suspected, that our interrogator clearly belongs outside what the mainstream might call "ordinary consensual reality."
For example, (and believe me, I only wish I were creative enough to have made this up) according to my interrogator's website, the most important threat facing the world today is that of “Alien Locusts” infesting our planet.
This frightening news is no longer available, except here: this man's research has continued apace, and on his current website we learn the thrilling news, for example, that ‘PASTOR JOHN STOCKER OF FORT COLLINS, COLORADO ENDORSES EARTHQUAKE RESURRECTION.”
A 'Biblical Foundation?' You mean, like, an Abramoff-type tax dodge?
We wrote him back, “You should really join the Shriners. At least then you'd be able to ride around in those little cars and wear a fez.”
But we didn't want to appear completely heedless. So we advised him, with some seriousness, to seek psychiatric help, and to resist the idea that he couldn’t because he’s so desperately needed on the front lines of the fight against the alien locusts.
If the 9.11 attack hadn’t been such a tragedy, guys like this would be amusing. In response to our ridiculing him mercilessly for his millennial idiocy, he delivered the following line, the funniest we’ve read in recent memory:
“I agree that "alien locust attack" may sound funny,” he wrote us, “to someone who hasn't researched the UFO and alien abduction phenomena with a biblical worldview as a foundation.”
But…of course! Still, we were puzzled: People opposing the Bush Administration’s official story about 9.11 usually have anything but a “biblical foundation as a worldview.”
In fact, that's what most of us find so creepy about Bush.
Ay there's the rub... You see, the 9.11 Truth Movement is stocked with true believers, in everything from Jesus to Urantia, and its leading light David Griffin is a divinity professor, of all things, whose books have been touted endlessly in spam email from the well-organized group.
Does anyone begin to smell a rat?
Dr. Griffin, we learned, recently gave an address entitled “9.11 and Demonic Consciousness.”
“My thesis is that the attacks of 9/11 were products of demonic consciousness, with "the demonic" understood as an emergent reality that is diametrically opposed to the creative power of the universe and strong enough to threaten its purposes,” he offered helpfully.
We usually refer people spouting off about "demonic consciousness" to the nearest emergency room. We figure they've either been taking the brown acid, or drinking the Kool-Aid.
Wackier and wackier…but then, Khashoggi's a cultist too
And then there's the Brigham Young University physicist, Steven Jones, who said he believes an incendiary substance called Thermite, bolstered by sulfur (Aha! Evidence of the demonic!) to generate exceptionally hot fires at the World Trade Center, causing the structural steel to fail and the buildings to collapse.
In addition to his research in scientific areas, Jones is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has also published papers like “Behold My Hands: Evidence for Christ's Visit in Ancient America,” on archeological clues he has found supporting the belief that Jesus Christ visited Latin America after his resurrection, as chronicled in the Book of Mormon.
Anyone who can find Jesus in South America 2000 years ago, we feel sure, is capable of finding pretty much anything he wants to, anytime at all. Maybe cold fusion. Maybe Thermite. Who knows?
And then there’s the ever-present—at least since Ruppert absconded-—Alex Jones, a second-stringer and also a budding plagiarist, we recently learned, when someone sent us a link to a Google video entitled “Alex Jones’ Flying Circus.”
Imagine my surprise when we learned the current Truth Movement spokesman has slapped his name on "Mohamed Atta & the Venice Flying Circus," one of my documentaries, a show he didn't have a thing to do with.
We checked with Google, to be sure, and its not as if some over-eager fan just made a mistake. The video was placed there by Jones website, “Prison Planet.”
We think Jones needs 30 Days in the Hole.
" Alex Jones Presents…Brought to you by 'the gold bullion boys'
Funny, but we always thought you had to actually, you know, write and produce a documentary before you can call it your own.
What will Alex "Bubba" Jones claim next?
"Bubba Jones' Titanic?" "Bubba Jones' Snakes on a Plane?" How do you say “scumbag" so even a simple-minded shill for the gold bullion boys understands?
"If the so-called alternative political culture has any hope of defining itself as something more than a comedy show, it could use a good dose of Daniel Hopsicker,” wrote one commentator recently.
We don't often blow our own horn. Maybe we should. But the MadCowMorningNews has broken more 9.11 stories than you can figuratively shake a stick at. Meander through the archives if you don't believe it. We showed up–and sat on!–an active covert operation at the biggest 9.11 crime scene that wasn’t reduced to rubble. We believe that what we did was unprecedented, and we thank our lucky stars to still be alive.
On the other hand, the phony Truth Movement “activists” and representatives of the Bought Off Left (you know who you are) trotted out on cable news to provide comic relief during next week’s commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the attack have done nothing but muddy the water for all they're worth.
"Elvis and Area 51 – we're sort of lumped together," said an attendee at a recent 9.11 Truth event.
And for very good reason.
We don't necessarily mean Larry Colmes, either.
Fox News has become famous for making sure that the token liberal in their ‘fair and balanced coverage’ is usually some poor unfortunate whose misshapen head is a testament to having been delivered by a baby doctor with rusty forceps and gin on his breath.
In exactly the same way, those challenging the government cover-up on cable news next week will feature an assortment of shabby academics being pushed by slime ball government double agents.
None will breath a word about the 9.11 Heroin Connection. They wouldn't dare.
Can a group of people harboring so many doubts about the intentions of their own and other governments, the media, and their fellow citizens really have no clue at all that U.S. Defense spending has been a massive rip-off, that the FBI is a clumsy bureaucracy, that our spies in the CIA were more interested in counting the money in their Cayman Islands accounts than cultivating human intelligence sources, and that skyscrapers in cities where construction is Mafia-controlled are not 100% safe?
It beggars the imagination. But then, so did the 9.11 attack.
Maybe we are just clever monkeys with opposable thumbs. Maybe H. L. Mencken was right about the limits of what we can know, when he said, “We are here and it is now. Further than that all human knowledge is moonshine.”
Or maybe we're witnessing the phenomenon author Thomas Pynchon took note of, when he wrote, “If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.”
Too true, dude. Too true.
