“Ash Carter Predicted 9/11”: ESP or foreknowledge?

SecDef Ash Carter


By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor


[Listen to my new interview with James Perloff on “Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11“]
Bodies Of Seven Servicemen Killed In Afghanistan Return To U.S.
Would Obama appoint a known 9/11 criminal as Secretary of Defense? Since foreknowledge of an act of high treason and mass murder constitutes criminal conspiracy – and since participation in plotting such an act would be an even worse crime – maybe it’s time to ask some hard questions about Ashton Carter. Such as: How did he and his buddy and co-author Philip Zelikow know, back in 1998, that the 9/11 “New Pearl Harbor” was just around the corner?

Politico’s “Morning Defense” column’s headline proclaims:

Ash Carter Predicted 9/11 and Its Aftermath

The article makes a case for Carter’s precocious prowess at precognitive prognostication. It is worth quoting at length:

 — Here’s Carter in a 1998 essay in Foreign Affairs, co-written with Philip Zelikow, who would later be executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and former Deputy Defense Secretary John Deutch:

“An act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America’s fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949. Like Pearl Harbor, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures, scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and use of deadly force. More violence could follow, either further terrorist attacks or U.S. counterattacks. Belatedly, Americans would judge their leaders negligent for not addressing terrorism more urgently.” http://fam.ag/1wtevyQ

 — And here’s Carter in a September 2000 book chapter he co-wrote with former Defense Secretary William Perry:

In the coming years, “an incident of catastrophic terrorism on the U.S. homeland would be likely to spark concern and effort on a comparable scale” to the reaction to the Soviet detonation of an atomic bomb in 1949. “It is easy to see how the concern could escalate to hysteria, and how actions taken in the angry aftermath of a destructive event could be corrosive of civil liberties as well as counterproductive. Because the aftermath of [a] homeland attack could be as fearsome as the attack itself, our government should begin to organize for this future threat now.” http://bit.ly/1yQxuCw

The Politico column leaves out one crucial observation: Ashton Carter and Philip Zelikow did not only foresee that an act of “catastrophic terrorism” would transform America the way Pearl Harbor did; but they even predicted precisely where it would strike. Their 1998 Foreign Affairs article actually predicted that the complete destruction of the World Trade Center would give America its “New Pearl Harbor.”

Since hindsight is always 20-20, some may say: “Well of course they did! It was so OBVIOUS that the World Trade Center would be targeted again! Anyone could see that the WTC would be annihilated in less than three years.”

What rubbish.

First, the 1993 WTC bombing, which was perpetrated by corrupt elements of the FBI, led to a huge uptick in Trade Center security. The only people with a reasonable shot at even attacking the WTC, much less seriously damaging it, much less demolishing it, were the people who controlled that security apparatus.

More pertinently, what are the odds that a ragtag band of shrimpy little cocaine-snorting stripper-dating pork-chop-relishing gambling-junket-loving “radical Muslim” alcoholics who couldn’t even fly Cessnas would somehow manage to destroy the entire World Trade Center complex, including its three massive skyscrapers, with two planes…and simultaneously bomb the most heavily-defended building on earth, the Pentagon? If we had an infinite number of alternate universes and could run that plot over and over to see how often it would succeed, the results might look something like this:

Odds that all of the plotters and “hijackers” would maintain operational secrecy and successfully insert “hijackers”carrying package-openers as weapons on all four planes: ONE IN FIVE HUNDRED.

Odds that if they somehow got on the planes, the five-foot-tall 100-pound “muscle hijackers” would get into the cockpit, overcome the big, tough, military-trained pilots, and subdue all the passengers on even one of the planes: ONE IN ONE HUNDRED.

Odds that this would happen on all four planes: 1/100 x 1/100 x 1/100 x 1/100 = 1/100,000,000 or ONE IN ONE HUNDRED MILLION.

Odds that such alleged hijackers could seize control of even one plane without that pilot or copilot squawking the hijack code – a procedure that takes a couple of seconds? ONE IN ONE THOUSAND.

Odds that this would happen on all four planes? 1/1000 x 1/1000 x 1/1000 x 1/1000 = 1/1,000,000,000,000 or ONE IN ONE TRILLION.

Odds that drugged-up alcoholic playboys posing as Muslims, who were such bad pilots they were not allowed to solo in Cessnas, would be able to direct even one plane to its target and hit it at aeronautically impossible speed – a feat that the world’s best pilots have been unable to replicate in simulators tweaked to allow the planes to fly that fast at sea level? ONE IN A MILLION (and that’s being generous).

Odds that this would happen on three of the four planes? 1/1,000,000 x 1/1,000,000 x 1/1,000,000 = 1/1,000,000,000,000,000,000 = ONE IN A QUINTILLION.

Odds that a World Trade Center Tower, if struck by a 767 and damaged by fire, would suffer even a partial collapse? 1/1,000.  Odds that both Towers would suffer even a partial collapse? 1/1,000 x 1/1,000 = ONE IN ONE MILLION.  Odds that a World Trade Center Tower, if struck by a 767 and damaged by fire, would explosively disappear into its own footprint (the path of most resistance) at free-fall acceleration, leaving behind virtually no rubble pile? ONE IN A QUINTILLION.

Odds that the Pentagon, the best-defended building on the planet, could be hit by a “hijacked” plane with no air defense response almost 90 minutes after emergency phone bridges between the Secret Service and the FAA were set up to deal with “terrorist hijackings”? ONE IN TEN THOUSAND. (And that’s assuming our military is incompetent to the point of insanity. With a competent military, it would be one in a trillion at most.)

Odds that a suicide hijacker would WANT to crash a plane at grasstop level into the relatively empty, newly-reinforced West Wing, rather than simply dive into the roof towards the East Wing where all the brass were? ONE IN TEN THOUSAND.

Odds that the same hijacker, stupid enough to make the above choice, would be competent enough navigate the obstacle course of the alleged approach path – a feat that highly skilled pilots cannot replicate in a simulator – and actually hit the building? ONE IN TEN THOUSAND.

So what are the odds that the 9/11 plot, with all of its grotesquely improbable elements, could succeed? I have no idea; when I tried to multiply all those numbers together, my calculator imploded into its own footprint.

No wonder the insurance companies allowed Netanyahu’s close friend, the notorious Zionist mobster Larry Silverstein, to purchase the condemned-for-asbestos World Trade Center two months before 9/11 and then double the insurance…and even change it to cash payout. The odds of anything really bad happening to the WTC seemed astronomical.

I think we can all agree that Ashton Carter’s 1998 foreknowledge that 9/11 would soon happen was not gained by his being a really smart guy who realized exactly what the dastardly terrorists were capable of. Instead, Carter and Zelikow were presumably part of the team that designed the 9/11 false flag deception.

Carter’s telltale 1998 article, which in a sane world would by itself be enough to get him hanged for treason, offers clues about the real motives of the real perpetrators.

Carter and Zelikow’s key prediction is that the coming act of catastrophic terrorism would “…undermine America’s fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949. Like Pearl Harbor, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after.”

Let’s unpack the above sentence.

Pearl Harbor divided America’s past and future into a before and after because it undermined the nation’s fundamental sense of security. Before Pearl Harbor was the era when Americans felt secure…and reluctant to go to war. After Pearl Harbor was the “whole new world” in which Americans would embrace their new role as world’s rogue cop – and murder over 50 million innocent people in undeclared wars and CIA interventions.  Vltchek and Chomsky do the math: “Along with the 55 million or so people killed as the direct result of wars initiated by the West, pro-Western coups and other conflicts, hundreds of millions have died indirectly in absolute misery, and silently” since World War II. This holocaust, which William Blum calls “the American holocaust,” is by far the greatest mass killing ever inflicted on the world, dwarfing all others by orders of magnitude.

How did a single event – the alleged surprise attack at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 – transform the American people so profoundly that they suddenly abandoned George Washington’s non-interventionist foreign policy and embraced permanent war for empire?

Defense Department psy-op specialist Bob Deutch – the world’s leading expert on using focus groups to achieve mass mind control – discovered that groups ranging from Hell’s Angels to entire nations engage in aggressive behavior primarily to defend against perceived insecurity and vulnerability. Pearl Harbor annihilated America’s sense of “homeland security.” The result has been a “whole new world” of red-white-and-blue genocide on a planetary scale.

The Soviet atomic bomb test of 1949, as Carter and Zelikow suggest, reinforced the lesson of Pearl Harbor. It helped Harry Truman “scare the hell out of the American people” in order to keep the US military-industrial complex on a wartime footing even in peacetime.

Ash Carter and Phil Zelikow apparently saw that something similar could be accomplished with a false-flag “New Pearl Harbor.” In 1998, when they published their article in Foreign Affairs, the end of the Cold War had left Americans feeling way too secure. Military budgets, as a percentage of GDP, were falling. Citizens clamored for a “peace dividend.” And perhaps most importantly, America’s softness in the Middle East was allowing anti-Israel forces – including Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, Islamic Revolutionary Iran, Qaddafi’s Libya, al-Turabi’s Sudan, various “terrorist” groups, and so on – to support the martyrdom operations that were threatening Israel’s existence.

Philip Zelikow, Carter’s co-conspirator in foreseeing the 9/11 event, let the cat out of the bag.  On September 10th, 2002 – the eve of the first anniversary of 9/11 – Zelikow, speaking to a crowd at the University of Virginia, admitted that the real purpose of the “New Pearl Harbor” was to spur the United States to defend Israel:

“I’ll tell you what I think the real threat [is] and actually has been since 1990 – it’s the threat against Israel. And this is the threat that dare not speak its name, because the Europeans don’t care deeply about that threat, I will tell you frankly. And the American government doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.”

Unlike Philip Zelikow, Ashton Carter is not Jewish. Why would he help orchestrate a “New Pearl Harbor” designed to create a whole-new-world in which the US bankrupts itself, morally and fiscally, by waging permanent war against Israel’s enemies?

The answer appears to be that although Carter is not Jewish, he is a “kosher gentile.” Carter has made a career of serving as token goy in groups of hard-line Jewish Zionists. For example, he is the token goy (alongside kosher co-authors Dennis Ross and Michael Makovsky) behind JINSA’s Carter-Makovsky-Ross Report railing against the Iranian nuclear program.

Ashton Carter is such a close associate of Paul Wolfowitz, the 9/11 mastermind who began working on the New Pearl Harbor project while studying under Leo Strauss in the 1960s, that Carter’s appointment as SecDef has been called “the second coming of Wolfowitz.”

Wolfie’s appointment as DepSecDef in 2000 signaled the coming of his pet project, the New Pearl Harbor. Will Carter’s appointment as SecDef likewise signal 911-2-B?

You don’t need to be a psychic (or a traitor plotting an attack on your own country) to foresee that Ashton Carter’s nomination as Secretary of Defense means that something very, very bad is coming down the pipe.


  1. Wow. Many folks posting herer have lots of information. It’s weird that so many “SECRETs” are let out here with no clampdown. Weird, but cool, I guess, if you like being let-in on secrets, which I guess we do since……

    I feel like a noob. No COSMIC clearance, no joy.

    Any way, I think there HAS to be a money crash and not necessaryily a kineticevent if for no other reason than demographics. If they let too many boomers pull their nest eggs out of wallstreet what happens to market cap, and the investments of….everyone? They have to crash wallstret before we take out all our retirement savings, don’t they?

  3. We have Boeing, and they could have come to our AID by explaining the reasons why the Boeing Planes could NOT have performed the way they tell us they did on 9/11. Boeing knows, and could explain why it’s NOT possible.

    After all we the American Taxpayers have given Boeing an unbelievable amount of business, through defense contracts that are paid by us, and commercial travel, that’s also paid by us. We have promoted Boeing in the U.S. and worldwide. Boeing has BETRAYED us royally by NOT speaking up about the facts as they knew them. They with-held any comments on a topic of 9/11 and what the planes supposedly did, their planes, having to do with a national disaster.

  4. I had christian religion explained to me in a laymans term way. It made sense to me.
    In the old testament you were going to hell , regardless of how you lived your life.Even the newest of babies was going to hell. This wasnt really good for building membership and the crowd thought ” we’re goin to hell anyway , lets party ‘ So Jesus came along in a new testament, born from an immaculate conception that we all know is impossible. He died for your sins (you know ,the little innocent newborn that couldnt possibly have committed a sin) and Walah , now you have a CHANCE to go to heaven if you live as a sheep , do everything we tell you , oh,and give us 10% of all you make. After that it just all smelt like the paddocks 500 meters away from the edge of town in any direction. I went to church once with my sister in law. She asked me what I thought and I said “its just like the pub but with no alchohol”. She was aghast. Everyone was chatting up each others partners and trying to get in their pants. So I went back to the pub where there is beer.

    • I don’t know what kind of organized christian you passed thru, but Christ is hope in a hopeless world! And by Him the world makes sense!

    • incorrect…I am my only hope in a hopeless world, I dont trust anyone else. How can you in these times, christ aint here helpin in case you havent noticed.

  5. Tomer- with your age and background, I pay attention to you. Can you make recommendations as to good magazines to read. I am just trying to figure out WHY things happen. For example, no sooner was our combat role in Iraq ending and it was bombs away in the Mideast and North Africa with this thing called the “Arab Spring”. We had the disruption of Syria and the fleeing of millions of Christians in Iraq and Syria from all the murderers on the loose.

  6. well of course he’d appoint him, he appointed a multiple felon as secretary of state, no one can tell me that not one person in the District of Criminals didnt know hillary IS a multiple felon (same for Judas Goat Ron Paul btw), same for the CMMM (yeah the “controlled ‘mainstream’ media machination” or whatever some call it), theres NO WAY they dont know hillary’s criminal and treasonous history but they sure tried to promote her when she ran for office!

    these criminals dont give a s#it and why should they when obama pardons bush pardons clinton pardons bush pardons ford carter reagan nixon johnson.. its ALL staged and the next (s)elected puppet is going to hand out the same brand of candy, nevermind them all being a clear danger to themselves and others.

  7. Tomer, heed your own words and please give the name of this planet you inhabit which has this “liberal political situation with no enemies.”
    I can only conclude you are either a shill, or you are among the crowd who are still trying to hide in denial and delusion.

  8. Now Uncle Tom Tillis and Sen. Burr represent me in the US Senate. Two Israel First, free-trading, union-hating neo-con war mongers.

  9. I love the quotes ” the real threat is the threat to Israel ( Talmudia ) “…Who gives a damn about Talmudia? Why SHOULD anyone give a damn about that shitty little country created through relatively recent immigration ( invasion ), terrorism, massacres, land theft and ethnic cleansing?! But the “real threat” is to Israel. Which is why the Satanic neocons thought we needed ” a new Pearl Harbor” to get the American cattle to accept a more belligerent foreign policy.

  10. “” During the McCarthy area in the 1950s most writers and commentators of VT would be in jail, even during the 1960s, at the hight of the cold war, most of you would be under FBI observation.””

    Good point and good question . The warning from Christ about the *** Synagogue of Satan *** has been on the books for two thousand years and has been mostly ignored until the recent advent of the worldwide internet . Many christian churches were infiltrated by religious subversives and did not make a big deal about it during those millenia . Now we are paying for the apparant inability of our leaders to detect and prevent that covert subversion .

    • “” It would be great if we could have a political or military discussion without always bringing in the religion! “”

      Yes it would surely simplify matters . Unfortunately , religion is fundamental to and inextricable from the major geopolitical issues . It does not matter much that you and some others do not believe in the big three abrahamic religions . What matters is that about 2 billion humans subscribe to christianity in its many different varieties ; and about 1.5 billion humans subscribe to Islam ; and that the Jewish World Order plutocrats ( aka NWO ) are firmly rooted , even tho they claim atheism , in the talmudic jewish religion . Atheists say religion is behind human slaughter in the form of wars and the religious say God is behind them ; and in both cases the issue resolves to religion .

    • “” Ethic and human dignity should govern your life , not 4,000 years old fairytales .””

      Surely you must realize that it would take a religion based on the belief that God made that statement in order to persuade about 3.5 billion humans to abide by it . The typical human does not pay much attention to any noncoercive authority that is not of God ; and there are about 7 billion humans on this planet where each one is fully capable of lying , cheating , stealing and murdering .

  11. Look who’s back…..it’s the Omniputz, also known as the Slithering Asshole, and many other fake names.
    The guy just can’t give up.

  12. Thanks Dr Barrett at least we can talk by numbers now however you almost forgot to cite the odds of a building NOT hit by a plane falling on its own footprint as the case with WTC-7. I can lend you my
    calculator, it works on BIGNUM format.

  13. Carter is a fanatic, an Israel Firster, a vicious ideologue. If he is confirmed, we are doomed, America is history, the world shortly to be in ruins. Hagel, on the other hand, was far from being such a fanatic. To me, his chief failure was his inability or willingness to articulate a clear defense policy consistent with the actual historic interest of this Constitutional Republic, which oft resulted in a demoralizing cowering to Israeli backed ‘Fifth Column’ elements in the US and NATO. Hagel failed to build support in the population for a decent defense policy, which would, in part, identify Israel and the Jewish Lobby as dire threats, the chief instigators of war and destabilizations across the world. Now we face the prospect of having a Zio-lunatic at the helm. Carter is Stangelove on steroids. Hence our prospective doom.

    • “”….. his inability or willingness to articulate …..””

      An excellent example of equivocation that could result in non-information .

    • The problem is that if you “articulate a clear defense policy consistent with ” our actual historic interests ( basically in accord with what’s spelled out in Washington’s Farewell Address ) Judeo-Masonry will kill you as they killed JFK.

    • No doubt . The ILLuminati have been playing murderous power games for ages and the goyim are slowly beginning to realize it thanks to the internet truth channels .

  14. Billy Cooper predicted 9/11 as well… and was murdered for it. Billy was spilling the beans in public forums and warning people what was really going on. And he paid for it with his life, as have many others. Carter was reading from a script and pre-staging for the Cabal. He’s a shill marked for high treason.

  15. Its too funny, the dumb southern baptist zionist evangelical WASPS lying in bed with the synagogue of satan. Either the dumbos are with Christ or they are with Christs killers, either JC was the messiah or this “moloch” awaited by israel is the messiah, its that simple. But the JRs have been infiltrated by morriscerullos and sumnerredstones, and hagi hogs the airwaves. And the hypocrites are all doing “Gods work” making swords in cushy military industrial pork barrel jobs thanks to ash carter and john mfcain.

  16. I hope that the usual zio blackmail tricks weren’t used to get this man appointed to replace someone that refused to be a zio puppet and warmonger.

    • With all due respect to you Dr. Barrett, and Gordon Duff, this is where emotions fail (love and espresso makers ), and logic prevails. I’ve stated my logic above (Gordon’s kids and the apollo propaganda). Don’t get me wrong; if I were in Gordon’s shoes, I’d do the exact same thing. There’s no way I’d risk putting my kids in danger. But at the end of the day, I must say I have developed a pretty good BS filter, thanks to this site. Thanks also goes to Alex Jones’ sites. Wow, what garbage that guy promotes.
      This may sound odd, but keep up the good work VT guys, because I’ve also learned the masses cannot handle full-steam-ahead-truth. So I retract my “mis-info in it’s entirety” comment above. There are some truths to what is written here. I guess most folks need to self-educate and work on their BS filters. So what we can do is agree to disagree on some of the “minor” issues to our worldly problems, and agree to stick together when it comes to the bigger problem of parasitic/criminal government trying to enslave us (even more) all. Stay armed folks.

    • Hey Dr. Barrett, I’ve now posted 2 (respectful) replies under your comment, to no post. What gives? We can agree to disagree on “minor” issues, but I recognize an over-all agreement to the suppression we are all under is key to getting out of this mess (hopefully). No more divide and conquer. We’re all in this together!

    • Let the discussion go where it may. We are not silos of information; columns of discussion should be discouraged. (kinda like those A-holes in Bildeberg promote).

  17. There is no prophecy in a blueprint, only intent. The coincidence nuts are still saying “Yeh, that could happen.” and I could win the Powerball five drawings in a row with the same numbers. It is one possibility but is it probable?

  18. Ash is getting the payoff – just like Nixon, Ford, and the Bush pair did after Dealey Plaza.

    Made men…

  19. If you factor in half the anomalies and the probability of finding self-generating, bi-layered, military grade nano thermite at the WTC, it’d probably exceed the probabilistic resources of the universe from the beginning of time. Jack Parsons’s background might shed some light on what motivates “Ash.”

  20. Oh ya, very bad… ref H. Rec 758 … passed Dec 4/2014… Can anyone wonder why Hagel left or was made to leave … he obviously did not want to go along, was not bad enough… and Ash needed in. So its seems to be war on Russia … I think USA is in for s surprise !!!!
