Parade Magazine’s Latest Bunkum, on 9/11

Parade of Lies, Part 8

by DC Dave

The most recent article in this series, “Parade Magazine in Full Propaganda Mode,” was about that pervasive propaganda organ’s writing on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Now, just a few days before the thirteenth anniversary of the 9/11 incident, we have come full circle. Here is the exchange on November 4, 2001, trumping up an excuse for the invasion of Iraq in Walter Scott’s Personality Parade that caused me to first pay attention to this insidious little publication:

Q. Before our war on terrorists began, how well did Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, the world’s top terrorists, get along? -C. Barnes, San Antonio, Texas

A. Not well at all, but they worked together on the principle that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Intelligence sources tell us Saddam encouraged attacks on U.S. targets because he harbors a deep resentment against George H. W. Bush, who created the coalition that defeated Iraq in the Gulf War. Our sources say Saddam figured the most effective way to punish the former President was to hurt his son, who now occupies the White House. It was a massive miscalculation. The recent outpouring of patriotic fervor pushed George W. Bush’s popularity rating to more than 90%.

Now they’re at it again. Four days before the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, they’re trying to keep the flame of martial fervor burning by recycling The Washington Post’s 10th anniversary “scoop” about the would-be heroic female National Guard fighter pilot at Maryland’s Andrews Air Force Base, Heather “Lucky” Penney, who took to the air on September 11, 2001, fully prepared to make a 140907-American-Stories-Heather-Penney-vtrmartyr of herself for her country. In the print edition of the slender little rag, accompanied by the same photo of the flags at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, that they have on their web site, the subtitle of the story is, “On 9/11, F-16 pilot Heather Penney was prepared to complete an unthinkable mission: take down United Flight 93.” The title is a quote from Penney, herself, that echoes the official story line that the passengers actually took over the flight, resulting in its crashing into the ground about midway between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, “Because of What They Did, We Didn’t Have to.”

Bill Hewitt, interviewing for Parade, gets this response from Penney concerning the events of September 11, 2001

After the Pentagon was hit, the Secret Service called and ordered us to get airborne. We had an idea there was another aircraft coming toward Washington. [Editor’s note: The fourth hijacked plane, Flight 93, was believed to be headed to the White House or the Capitol.] Because we’d just returned from a training mission in Nevada, there weren’t any missiles or bombs or high-explosive bullets on the airplanes, and it was going to be a while before the weapons people could get the missiles built up. My commander, Col. Marc “Sass” Sasseville, looked at me and said, “Lucky, you’re with me.”

Uh, right. I know we are supposed to believe that the complicated, well-nigh impossible scheme of 19 poorly trained jihadists miraculously succeeded because our designated defenders were a bunch of stumblebums (and Osama bin Laden somehow knew that they would be), but was it really this bad? What is the Secret Service, which was under the U.S. Department of the Treasury at the time, doing giving orders to some unprepared Air National Guard jet jockeys at the local air base, and how did the Secret Service know what Penney’s superiors in the Air Force didn’t know?

A Cacophony of Voices

Perhaps she added this embellishment to the original Post story because Hugh Turley had written a follow-up article in which he reminded the Post reporter, Steve Hendrix, that according to the official 9/11 Report, the Air Force didn’t know about Flight 93 until after it had crashed. This is from his earlier September 2009 Hyattsville Life and Times article, “The Case of Lt. Kuczynski”:

The 9/11 Commission Report…says flatly that the military was not aware of United 93 until it crashed.  The official timeline has FAA headquarters knowing that United 93 was hijacked by 9:34, but not telling NEADS [North East Air Defense Sector] of the hijacking until 10:07, after the plane had crashed at 10:03 in Pennsylvania.

The Report clearly states, “…[n]o one from FAA headquarters requested military assistance regarding United 93.  Nor did any manager at FAA headquarters pass any of the information it had about United 93 to the military.”

The first NEADS knew about it, according to the report, was at 10:07 a.m., when a call came in from the military liaison at Cleveland Center.  “The NEADS air defenders never located the flight or followed it on their radar scopes,” it goes on.  “The flight had already crashed by the time the military learned it was hijacked.”

Both Penney and the 9/11 Commission Report, furthermore, are out of step with a very early CBS News report on September 16, 2001:

As the fourth hijacked plane was over Pennsylvania, seemingly headed for Washington, military commanders, the FAA, and White House officials were on a conference call discussing options.

At the time, there were two F-16s armed with air-to-air missiles within 60 miles of Flight 93. But the fighters were still out of missile range when the jetliner crashed, sources said.

No decision had to be made, but administration officials say that, had the jetliner continued toward Washington, the fighter jets would have shot it down. The rationale, say the sources, was that the government was willing to “kill 100 to save a thousand”.

Assuming that that early report is accurate, those two fully armed fighter jets would have easily been within range of Flight 93 long before Penney and company would have had to have performed their suicidal ramming stunt. The accuracy of that report is further buttressed by Turley’s 2009 article:

On the first anniversary of the crash, Brigadier General Montague Winfield told ABC News that the Pentagon’s National Military Command Center “received the report from the FAA that Flight 93 had turned off its transponder, had turned, and was now heading towards Washington,” adding, “The decision was made to try to go intercept Flight 93.”

The documentation for that assertion can be found here. Turley reports further, drawing from the Air Force’s official history of the day, “Air War Over America,” published by Tyndall Air Force Base:

NEADS…Commander Robert Marr reported that around 9:36, when it changed direction, while it is still flying west, United 93 was being monitored.  NORAD Commander Major General Larry Arnold agreed, saying, “We watched the 93 track as it meandered around the Ohio-Pennsylvania area.”

Furthermore, Arnold, testified to the 9/11 Commission that he placed fighters over DC, “to put them in position in case United 93 were to head that way.”

Even if you take the would-be heroine Penney at her word that she and her commander were all primed and ready to pay the ultimate price for their country, there was apparently not the slightest need for their heroism. The fighters that General Arnold speaks of were the ones that arrived after the Pentagon explosions: “We launched the aircraft out of Langley to put them over top of Washington, D.C., not in response to American Airlines 77, but really to put them in position in case United 93 were to head that way.”

So take your choice. There was either a superfluity of fully armed fighter jets bearing down on the doomed flight from the north and already over Washington, having come from the south, as the military authorities tell us; the Air Force was in the dark about Flight 93 until after it had crashed, according to the 9/11 Commission; or the only thing that stood between the commandeered plane and our politicians in the White House or the Capitol Building were our own pair of suicide pilots in the DC Air National Guard, in the version spun by The Washington Post and Parade magazine. They really do seem to be a bunch of stumblebums when it comes to getting their stories straight.

The Case of Lt. Kuczynski

kuczynski_a2Trumping them all, to my mind, is Air Force Lieutenant Anthony Kuczynski with the story that he told to the alumni magazine of his alma mater, St. Thomas University in St. Paul, Minnesota. “I was given direct orders to shoot down the airliner,” he said. To me, that has the ring of truth because he was speaking out of turn. He didn’t realize that he was speaking out of turn, because, after all, like the government and the press, he was repeating the official story that, in the end, his orders didn’t matter because the passengers took control of the airplane and caused it to crash into the ground. But apparently he got too close to the truth, because, with the exception of one columnist at the free monthly Hyattsville (MD) Life and Times, the press has ignored his revelations.  He is now a Lieutenant Colonel at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona.

To the dispassionate observer, it looks for all the world like orders to shoot down the plane were carried out. I will admit that I am theorizing here, but the theory that seems to fit the known facts best is that, indeed, control of Flight 93 had been regained, but it had been regained by the pilots from its remote-control takeover. That’s why it had to be shot down. It is a great deal more believable than that a fully intact airliner made the hole in the ground near Shanksville, PA, and produced debris scattered miles apart and that passengers made cell phone calls while out of the range of cell phone towers.

And which of those two Air Force pilots appears most believable, the one who uses the likes of Parade magazine and The Washington Post as her megaphone and now has an important position with the nation’s largest military contractor, or an active duty Air Force flier with no apparent axe to grind? Which of the two has the greater incentive to continue to stoke the martial fires and to keep us at war?

    “I told the attendees that those who hate Israel also hate America,” Cruz lisped “Jewishly”.
    “That those who hate Jews also hate Christians…..hmmm?
    isn’t that a sign of a doubleminded “Man” light in his loafers and a raving NOTSEE ?
    And that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people is not following the teachings of Christ.
    These statements were met with angry boos. I went on to tell the crowd that Christians in the Middle East have no better friend than Israel. That Christians can practice their faith free of persecution in Israel. And that ISIS, al Quida, Hamas, and Hezbollah,
    along with their state sponsors in Syria and Iran, are all part of the same cancer,
    murdering Christians and Jews alike. Hate is hate, and murder is murder…
    Hate is hate, and murder is murder.”

    • Ted Cruz is indicative of the entire tainted bunch of Jew ass-kissing torah thumpers we call Congressmen.

      I read the article about comparing Hitler to Bush. The comments sum up the stupidity of the Red staters (those who can never find anything wrong with ANY Republican).

      Hitler, to me, is admirable in many ways (at least he knew who was causing the problems). Bush is a low intelligence, neocon tea bagger (who enjoys the bag on his chin) who used Christianity to forward the Jews’ directives. Hitler would have NEVER done what the Jews dictate, yet EACH AND EVERY US Politician will do ANYTHING in subservience to them.

      And sadly, most of the “alternative media” sucks their ass, too.

      • B’MAN, you said it! The so called ‘leaders’ of this Nation of SHEEPLE, love to point to Hitler as evil, and because of the HOLOHOAX, the JEWS™ are defended and then the JEWS™ dictate our foreign and domestic policies that are designed for our destruction. And the ‘LEADERS’ are ignored for the subversive positions that they take. How is it that there are so many false allegations that the United States has turned against “ISRAEL”, when there is ZERO outrage over the systematic genocide of the Palestinian people (MANY are Christians)?

        The truth is, the so called JEWS™ declared war on GERMANY(NOT HITLER) and Hitler was the PREDICTABLE result of JEWISH™ aggression! The Babylonian Talmud is the EDOMITES declaration of WAR against WE the GOYIM! And the Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion(EDOM) is the “GAME PLAN”. The PROTOCOLS simply magnifies the BABYLONIAN TALMUD!

        By the way… There is no doubt in my mind that building #7 was the intended target of Flight 93. There is nothing about building 7 that could make anyone believe that a ‘little’ fire caused it to simply FREE FALL! It was wired, and set for destruction because of the information that was in side of it needed to dis-appear, but with no PLANE crashing into it, they had to go ahead and “PULL IT”. And ALEX JONES, and ALL that say other wise are either unthinking fools, or GATE KEEPERS!

        Keep up the the good work!

    you might have missed the story several years ago, but in a small village south of Dallas
    one day a fellow working at the storage rental facility decided to do his part to help
    poor women who just couldn’t afford costly breast exams…so, he took out an ad in the local
    weekly shopper for free breast exams…well, soon the local media decided to do some checking on account of some of the bewildered examinees noticed a decidedly unclinical set up of the office
    break room at the rental facility office….

    Ashkenazim are at a particularly high risk for these mutations: One in 40 carries a BRCA mutation as compared to one in 345 in the general population. But until now, the United States Preventive Services Task Force has recommended against routine genetic counseling or BRCA testing for women who had no family history of cancer.

    Citing their findings, published September 5 on the website of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the study’s authors recommended routine screening of all women of Ashkenazi backgrounds for harmful mutations in the BRCA genes.

    Some prominent experts agree.

    “I think it is going to be a game changer,” said Dr. Harry Ostrer, a noted geneticist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in New York, referring to the study results. “I think it puts the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force on notice.”

    Ostrer said he had just returned from a bar mitzvah, where the study was making waves. “People were walking up to me and saying, ‘Gee, I want to be tested. How do I do that?” he said.

    A Texas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for posing as a gynecologist —
    with an office in a self-storage complex.

    So-called Authorities in Dallas launched an undercover investigation after seeing an
    ad in a weekly newspaper offering free medical care.

    A prosecutor set up the undercover sting with an investigator posing as a
    patient and using a hidden camera.

    They say Thomas Remo wore a scrub shirt and had some medical equipment in the small kitchen of the storage facility office where he worked….which was working pretty good for a few days

    the thing that really impressed me was the “Media”….who took it upon themselves with
    Camera man in tow…to visit the home of Mr. Remo, aspiring unlicensed Gynecologist,
    {I mean come on how hard can this job be…?}
    whereupon the Lady who answered the door was shocked to say the least by the reporters
