NY Times op-ed: Mainstream 9/11 narrative “totally false, literally from the first minutes”

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has admitted that his own newspaper’s comic strip version of 9/11 was “totally false, literally from the first minutes.”

By Kevin Barrett,  Veterans Today Editor

Today, on the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 neocon coup d’état, the New York Times editorial page has published a column by economist Paul Krugman calling the official narrative “totally false” – and accusing the Bush-Cheney Administration of “rejoicing” at the successful attack on America.

Here is Krugman’s key passage:

In the weeks and months after the atrocity, news media had a narrative about what it meant – basically, that it was a Pearl Harbor moment that brought America together with a new seriousness and resolve. This was comforting and reassuring. It was also totally false, literally from the first minutes.

The truth, as we now know, is that Bush administration officials rejoiced, even as the fires were still burning, at the opportunity they now had to fight the unrelated war they always wanted.”

Krugman does not come right out and say that the Bush-Cheney gang “rejoiced” because they were celebrating a successful covert operation. Nor does he mention the many Israelis who were even more blatantly celebrating their New Pearl Harbor deception:

*The “dancing Israelis,” Mossad agents all, who according to the NYPD had been pre-positioned to film the attacks, and who photographed themselves cheering wildly and flicking cigarette lighters in front of the burning and exploding Twin Towers.

*Benjamin Netanyahu, whose first reaction was that the attacks were “very good,” and who reaffirmed that years later by saying “We are benefitting from one thing” – 9/11.

*Mike Harrari, the legendary Mossad chief, who threw a celebratory party and openly claimed credit for 9/11, according to self-proclaimed eyewitness Dmitri Khalezov.

From ex-Chief Harrari to its agents on the ground in New York, the Mossad wildly and openly celebrated 9/11. The CIA’s reaction was somewhat more ambivalent. According to CIA Iraq Desk asset Susan Lindauer, her Case Officer, Richard Fuisz —who had known ahead of time that a big terror attack would be hitting Lower Manhattan — was on the phone with her on the morning of 9/11 as live television showed the Towers burning and then, suddenly, exploding. Lindauer says that as the Towers exploded, Fuisz’s reaction was an anguished scream: “The goddamn Israelis!”

But just a few weeks later, Bush called a celebratory party at the CIA, broke out the champagne all around, reassured everyone that their jobs were safe, and called 9/11 “just a memory” amidst an atmosphere of relief and rejoicing. (T.H. Meyer, Reality, Truth, and Evil.)

What does “liberal with a conscience” Paul Krugman know about the Bush Administration’s (and Israel’s) celebrations of 9/11? Presumably more than he’s telling us.

Why won’t Krugman just come right out and tell us what he really thinks? Presumably because he knows the New York Times would never publish it.

So Krugman’s breakthrough op-ed — the most truthful assessment of 9/11 ever published in a leading American newspaper — uses the kind of double-speak championed by neoconservative guru Leo Strauss. According to Strauss, ordinary people cannot handle the truth, so “philosophers” (i.e. neocons) should feed them comforting lies…while at the same time letting the truth slip through, from between the lines, in such a way that the philosophers, who are careful readers alert to multiple meanings, will understand the half-hidden message.

Krugman passes the buck for his, and the rest of the liberal media’s, failure to report 9/11 honestly:

The thing was, people just didn’t want to hear about this reality.

Maybe they didn’t want to hear it. But if the New York Times had published screaming headline after screaming headline from 9/12/1001 onward about…

*the controlled demolitions

*the bizarre “failure” of America’s air defenses

*the Israeli celebrations (and huge pre-9/11 operation in America)

*the Secret Service’s behavior in the Florida school where Bush was reading about pet goats

*the absurdity of the “hijackings” narrative

*the grotesquely un-Islamic behavior of the “Islamic extremist” alleged hijackers

*the complete lack of evidence of a plane crash at the Shanksville “Flight 93 crash site”

*the fact that at least nine alleged hijackers turned up alive afterwards

…the American people would have listened, risen up, and overthrown an evil regime that was bent on shredding the Constitution, doubling the military budget, and bankrupting America with wars aimed primarily at genocidally destroying the Middle East for the benefit of expansionist Israel.

The biggest and worst failure after 9/11 was the failure of the media to report the facts. Krugman and the rest of his liberal media colleagues who dropped the ball are complicit in the worst crimes against humanity ever perpetrated: The murder of 32 million Muslims in a genocidal war aimed at utterly destroying the Middle East, the annihilation of American Constitutional democracy, the bankrupting of the US and global economies, and the wholesale shifting of scarce resources away from taking care of people and building sustainable infrastructure, towards ever-escalating technologies and practices of wholesale destruction and mass murder.

The CONSCIENCE of a liberal?! I suspect that Krugman is suffering from bad conscience, and the disguised doublespeak version of 9/11 truth that he is telling in the NY Times op-ed pages is the rather pathetic result.

I hope and pray that Krugman and others in similar positions will follow the lead of those who, like leading Islamic Studies expert Professor Khaled Abou El Fadl, have been driven by their consciences to speak more forthrightly about 9/11.

  1. Is this a typo ?

    “The murder of 32 million Muslims in a genocidal war ”

    My understanding is that we’ve allowed our fascist controlled governments to murder up to two million Muslims since 911.

    Doctors for Social Responsibility

    “last month, the Washington DC-based Physicians for Social Responsibility (PRS) released a landmark study concluding that the death toll from 10 years of the “War on Terror” since the 9/11 attacks is at least 1.3 million, and could be as high as 2 million.

    Of course, the state department funded lackeys from IBC have their own foolishness to feed the herd.

    “As of December 2012, the IBC has recorded 110,937—-121,227 civilian deaths. “”

    “”An official funding document confirms that the Iraq Body Count (IBC), a widely-respected ‘independent’ antiwar group monitoring Iraq War casualties since its inception in 2003, has received core funding from government agencies complicit in the Iraq War, since 2009.

    Iraq Body Count (IBC), has received core funding from government agencies complicit in the Iraq War, since 2009. “USIP, is currently a funder of the very same executives, John Sloboda and Hamit Dardagan, who run the IBC.

    feel free to improve my understanding.

  2. Rand Paul gave an interesting speech today in congress. There is a subtle message and an overt one.
    On this topic, it is relevant and quite succinct. I do wish he had mentioned the anthrax, but I have to say, among the republicans an anti-war speech is a welcomed essence to the 9/11 saga.
    His opening words are fresh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUltCZC4j7E
    It’s on youtube “MUST SEE! RAND PAUL “ARE YOU FOR THE WAR OR AGAINST THE WAR?”
    He even mentions heroin increase in Afghanistan, and certainly pounds the illegal wars with a hammer.

  3. Philosophy Schillosophy. If you want to know about Philosophy,then you have to turn to the Jesuit Fred. Copleston “A History of Philosophy”, an acclaimed seven volume work. Sad,sick,scurrelous lying Talmudic Hate Thought is not Philosophy. Unfortunately this system has fully penetrated British Empirical Philosophy and Darwinism and it denies the essential nature of the Human Person.We are reduced to animals – dog eat dog.Except of course for the Super Race, The Chosen People that sit like an Effendi in the shade under a tree while the “animals” slave as donkeys, are herded like sheep and are slaughtered like cattle.

    • How can the New World Order preach Democracy and Freedom when they imbue people with falsehood through false education and lying propoganda? The populace is so poorly educated that a large portion don’t even vote. Maybe they sense the unreality of the Punch and Judy Show known as the USA Election.
      Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb. Not just the USA but all over the World.

  4. Towers turned to dust (no seismic measurements and basements intact), paper ok and cars toasted, hurricane Erin reversed (?), etc etc. Not an ordinary day , that’s for sure.

    • There were seismic measurements, the basements were completely destroyed, the bedrock melted, molten steel was still being pulled out months later, the cars were toasted by the Hohlraum effect when hard radiation from the nukes caused the cooling systems to explode, Hurricane Erin has no significance whatsoever. You should stop listening to Judy Wood’s bullshit and read the many articles VT has published that lay out exactly how the WTC was destroyed with nukes, and who was responsible.

    • USA moral majority has been happily riding “The Magic Bullet” since 1963, and happily flying “The Magic 9/11 Planes” since 2001, while courts, law-enforcements, and even many of the Ground Zero victims’ families have become after-the-fact accomplices, with payoffs to keep quiet, or payoffs to support the coverups.
      As to Paul Krugman: is he the phony Nobel Economist?
      I remember several years ago having posted a public comment in response to an article of his about the unpredictability of 2008 USA economic meltdown, even for fake economists like him!
      In response, I linked to some pages of a 2004 lawsuit in which I disclosed the 2008 meltdown years in advance! I did that again recently in response to another phony Nobel Economist (Brian S. Wesbury) , and here is my comment, including my 2004 reveals:

  5. Article on nbc talking about no trial for 5 defendants held without even a whiff of evidence and 300 million dollars later…. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/why-has-no-one-ever-been-put-trial-9-11-n800351 Guantanamo is a house of cards, because the case must be weak to go to such extreme to give appearance of evidence, when there is zero. When a defendant is brought forth, they look coerced. I have always stated that 9/11 should have been a NYC Police Dept investigation as the lead with FBI backing.
    The pentagon proved itself inept that day. And still they hold these guys on What exactly ? They cannot and will not say. Poopy spittle.

  6. Krugman is a sellout. How dare he placate the truth with cowardly admission of half truth ? I give this man no time at all. Any Two articles displays who he is, and any man like him. Those who lean on his words are cowards afraid to face reality and defend their position by clinging to group thought. Men who drive thoughts toward complacency are criminals vying for adoration amidst their own cowardice. They are not men, but boys clinging to pant legs with false admiration for themselves. Meanwhile the same men, would rather shake hands with even more successful criminals, than deal with real people for even one day. Harmful is the notch below useless.

  7. Back then in 2001, on BBC news, when they showed Bush at the school, reading about ‘My Pet Goat’…..in fact, if I recall correctly, one of the children was reading to the class and I’m quite positive the child spoke the words “my Pet Goat”……which made me laugh, sarcastically of course, because of GW’s Skull and Bones membership (my Uncle was a mason and so was a former partners father, both of whom I usually asked them, again sarcastically, “you been f***’in the Goat again this weekend boys….down at the Lodge?”…..needless to say I was frowned upon, especially since my Uncle was based in City of London with the Metropolitan Police……Rothschild Goyim was another term I used……and this was in the 1980’s…….maybe My Pet Goat was what led to the animation of ‘I Pet Goat’…..anyway, as Shrimpton would say…..”No offence intended”

    • Watch Bush’s reaction. He knew and his mind was rolling over the thought that HE had let the USA be attacked. But the plan was put in place earlier, put at the top of the Pentagon while we all watched the President Bill infidelity show.

      The Jewess Monica, Patreus intern was not put in close, private and repeated proximity to the horndog President for no reason and with no planning on how to use the sextortion, ultimately using it to cover a criminal plan by Israel, Saudi and US NEO’s….and Hillary.

      Think of the deals that she could make for going along with the plan….indeed being an active participant and receiving PROMISES of being queen (US President) of the world….not unlike when satan temped Jesus….except she took the deal.

      They failed to deliver twice, first with Obama and now Trump. Obama was an easy co-opt…started with that Nobel Peace Prize….but they got a lot more trouble with Trump. He can’t keep his mouth shut. Eventually they will fully overpower him, they are well on the way, but his real underlying character will let out the secret. Trump is a Jew wannabe …but not a real one. They will F him in a heartbeat. Many sighed this letter against Trump. OPEN LETTER ON DONALD TRUMP FROM GOP NATIONAL SECURITY LEADERS

  8. Consider this: Former president Bush and I believe VP Cheney both have SS protection. Even if the corrupt Justice Dept. wanted to arrest them how could they with the armed SS thugs protecting them? Would the two groups have a shootout? Even if citizens were permitted to arrest them how could they with these armed goons protecting them? What were the intentions of the Founders when the entire government is a corrupt cesspool? Today Trump and his wife gave a PR sympathy display for public consumption. I would bet Trump knows all the sordid details of 9/11. After all he has lived in the cesspool NY all his life and himself gotten away with lying and cheating all his life as documented on his lies about saving priceless artifacts from the former building where his tower now stands to lying in federal court about refusing to rent to blacks in housing and many others by the top investigative journalist the late Wayne Barrett of New York for many decades. Trump even was recorded making comments shortly after the attack. These criminals have gotten away with their crimes. How can justice be done without total civil war? Is this why the 2nd Amendment was placed in the Constitution? Is this also why some seek to confiscate all guns from the population? How would the Founders deal with these unindicted crimes if they were here alive today? Could even they deal with this peacefully beyond doing nothing?

    • A number of the four star generals also must either have had prior knowledge of 9/11 or insider information since they stood down and traitorously did nothing to defend the country that day their most basic responsibility. I urge Gordon to write a personal open letter to them, published on VT,, offering them the opportunity to “come clean” and finger all the perps they know and all details they know as their final act of true conscience to the country they purport to love and serve. How many more years will they live anyway? Some of them might actually have a conscience and have feelings of guilt and remorse. Who knows? Isn’t it worth a shot? This is likely the only way the truth will ever come out.

    • wjabbi, They were worried that Patraeus might get a conscience or have a night time talk with the wifey so they put the Jewess Paula Broadwell in to seduce him and stop that.

      The Jewess Monica was not a random act either, though she may not have known she was bait. Hillary did.
