In the immediate aftermath of September 11th, as the world was trying to come to terms with the full impact of events, some critical factors were overlooked. One was the possibility that the planes were actually flown by remote control. Now this may sound a little far fetched but it has already been done with aircraft as big as those involved in the WTC attack.
On April 24th 2001 the Global Hawk, an aircraft with a wingspan as big as a Boeing 737, left Edwards Air Force Base in the US and flew across the Pacific to an Australian Air Force base near Adelaide. The aircraft was unmanned and monitored by ground based crews in the US and Australia.
The flight of over 13,000 km established “robot planes” and the remote control of aircraft as a modern day fact.
So could it be that the planes involved in the WTC attack were flown by remote control? Were the hijackers themselves hijacked and the planes that they thought they controlled actually flown by others? Again it may sound far-fetched but it would add another level of “plausible deniability”. And as we detailed in the previous issue US Intelligence knew of plans by Islamic extremists to hijack commercial airliners and ram them into high profile targets as far back as 1992; but did nothing, despite repeated warnings from other intelligence agencies.
Were they in fact waiting to take advantage of a genuine hijacking by Muslim extremists, using it as a cover for their own sinister plans? Once again that may sound a little over the top but many experienced pilots, both civilian and military, have had problems with the WTC disaster as reported by the mainstream media.
In the weeks following September 11th rense.com reported that military and civilian pilots had gathered together to discuss the WTC and Pentagon attacks.
Troubling questions arose about the alleged pilot-hijackers of the four aircraft, all of who were supposedly trained on Cessna aircraft over the past year. One airforce officer remarked, “I seriously question whether these novices could have located a target dead-on 200 miles removed from takeoff point…– much less controlled the flight and mastered the intricacies of 11FR (instrument flight rules) — and all accomplished in 45 minutes.”
The extremely skilful manoeuvring of the three aircraft at near mach speeds, each unerringly hitting their targets, was considered superb. As one Air Force officer — a veteran of over 100 sorties over North Vietnam – put it, “Those birds (commercial airliners) either had a crack fighter pilot in the left seat, or they were being manoeuvred by remote control.”
Another pilot warned, “We had better consider whether electro-magnetic pulse or radio frequency weapons were used from a command and control platform hovering over the Eastern Seaboard… I’m talking’ AWACS.”
While another asked: “If there was an AWACS on station over the targeted area, did it have a Global Hawk capability? I mean, could it convert the commercial jets to robotic flying missiles”?
A hotly debated question was: who would be in command of such an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)? The Russians, the Chinese, the Israelis, NATO and the Americans all possess AWACS-type aircraft. All have the capability to utilize electro-magnetic pulsing (EMP) to knock out on-board flight controls and communications of targeted aircraft, and then, to fly them by remote control. Yet whoever took control of the aircraft, whether they were Russians or even Americans, the fact is that the mainstream media has largely ignored this possibility. Just as it has largely ignored the evidence that Princess Diana was murdered.
