Journalist and activist Barbara Honegger returns to Truth Jihad Radio. She sent this list of topics:

1) The Lawyers’ Committee’s Oct. 15th filing with all 535 Members of Congress a Petition calling for a reopening of the Anthrax Attacks investigation. The date was intentionally chosen as it’s the anniversary of the date Daschle’s aide opened one of the two letters to Senators with highly weaponized (1 trillion spores per gram) anthrax. The documentation in the Petition effectively proves that Ivins, the ‘Lee Harvey Oswald’ patsy of the Anthrax attacks, not only did not do it but could not have done it. I am on the LC Research and Drafting Committee for all the Petitions in addition to being on the Board and an officer. On the LC ‘team’ for this Petition, amongst others, are Richard Lambert, the head of the FBI’s entire Amerithrax investigation for four years who became a whistleblower and filed a lawsuit against the Agency; as well as many of Bruce Ivins’ microbiologist associates at Ft. Detrick who have provided sworn statements as to why he couldn’t have been the Anthrax killer. Also exciting is the LC’s appeal of the lawsuit against AG Barr and FBI Director Wray for the cover up of the 9/11 Review Commission to the D.C. federal appeals court which has scheduled oral arguments for Dec. 9th, the live audio of which should be public — we’re checking on this and I’ll let you know if that’s for sure and how to listen. Also, one of the LC’s FOIA lawsuits re WTC7 is now with the judge who delegated recommending how he should rule to a magistrate judge who came back against the Gov’t and for us. As they say, the wheels of justice turn slowly but all of these are extremely positive and exciting developments.

2) The highlights of my rebuttal of the claims and interpretations of Chandler et al. in their Pentagon video recently discussed on this show. My rebuttal video takes screen shots from their video and rebuts their claims one by one. You asked if there were key photos that could be posted. I recommend two main ones. The first (below) is the most important photo in the entire Pentagon debate, used by both Chandler-Coste et al and myself but to reach 180 degree opposite conclusions. The red circle in this Photo is the c. 12-1/2 foot diameter of the nose of a 757, the center of which, squarely on Column 14, is literally ‘The Bulls Eye’ of where the Official Story itself claims a 2,000 ton 757 going at over 550 mph hit the wall coming in at a c. 45 degree diagonal angle from the right/south, and yet COLUMN 14 ITSELF IS CLEARLY NOT ONLY STILL IN PLACEBUT STILL ESSENTIALLY VERTICAL !!! This of course is physically impossible if the official story, this part of which they explicitly support, were true.

The second attachment shows the melted Cockpit Voice Recorder/CVR of alleged Flight 77. Right after the Pentagon/FBI released this photo on c. Sept. 14th claiming that it was from Flight 77, American Airlines put out an official press release that it could not have been from anyAA 757 — or any AA commercial airliner — on 9/11 as it was the ‘wrong kind’ of CVR for any of their operational planes at that time. Chandler et al. strongly rely on the Flight Data Recorder/FDR data that the official story and they claim is from a plane that hit the wall exactly where the red circle is in the first attached photo. But a CVR and FDR are together in the tail of a commercial airliner, so as the CVR couldn’t have been from Flight 77 the FDR and its data they rely on couldn’t have been either. This is all in addition to the many other compelling and converging lines of evidence in ‘Smoke Curtain’ and in my rebuttal video that whatever plane was destroyed at the Pentagon — and there was one — happened over 5 minutes before the official story alleged impact time at the red circle and 120 to 150 feet further to the left/north along the wall at/by the Heliport from the alleged impact point they advocate for. Chandler-Coste et al. have had my rebuttal video for over a year and a half and have never addressed it. They just repeat what they’ve already put out, including their latest slightly shorter video that you had Chandler on the show recently about.

3) The highlights of my Presentation — “Striking Parallels Between the JFK and 9/11 Cover Ups” — to the JFK Assassination Conference tomorrow, Nov. 20th, organized and hosted by Judyth Vary Baker, Lee Harvey Oswald’s partner, which will be my fourth consecutive presentation at the annual Event.

2)Anthrax Links to the Day of 9/11 Itself – Barbara Honegger – OpEdNews, Sept. 25, 2008

Misprint note: The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) press conference on anthrax was Sept. 4, not Sept. 9, 2001.

3) Barbara Honegger’s Rebuttal Video to the Chandler-Coste Video

4) ‘Behind The Smoke Curtain: What Happened at the Pentagon on 9/11, and What Didn’t, and Why It Matters’ – Barbara Honegger

Barbara Honegger, M.S. is a Board Member, Officer and on the Petition Research and Drafting Committees of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry. From Sept. 11th 2001 Barbara has been a leading investigative journalist, author, public speaker and activist on the events of 9/11 with emphasis on the Pentagon attack, including presentations in the U.S. Europe and Canada. She has served in a number of high level Government positions including White House Policy Analyst, Special Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, Director of the Attorney General’s Law Review at the Department of Justice, and for more than a decade was the Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, the premiere science, technology and national security affairs graduate research university of the Department of Defense. Barbara is also a national whistleblower. Her pioneering book October Surprise, the first by almost three years and subsequently confirmed by formerly classified documents and deathbed confessions of key conspirators, led to a Congressionally mandated re-investigation of the Iran side of the Iran-Contra scandal funded at the level of the 9/11 Commission.

  1. This is beating a dead horse.

    TPTsB don’t want the truth to get out to the sheeple and therefore, it won’t. Anyone interested in this has already discovered the likely truth and those that haven’t don’t really care about it.

    Trump extended the time frame for the JFK hit information to be released, for example, so there are no good guys in gov’t that will help in any investigation that might uncover some inconvenient truths.

    Even if the truth did get out to a wider audience, there will be no consequences because the DOJ won’t move on anything that might upset their environment.

    Face it – the gov’t is a mafia operation, a criminal cartel. They’ll let go of their perks and privilege only after they’ve sucked the country dry of everything worth having.

    Only thing that matters today regarding 9/11 is the who and why. The how only matters to wonder who could coordinate nukes? Your seeing the why , now.
    Kevin i dont even know why you still associate yourself with VT these days. What a total embarrassment that site is now. Its really painful to see what is on there now. There have been some great people there but no more. And no , i wasnt refering to Angry Ian. God bless it seems hes gone. Anyone know where Dr. Preston James went ?

  3. Alfa158 says:

    No official story claims that a Boeing 757 weighs 2,000 tons. Maximum takeoff weight of a Boeing 757 is 225 tons.

  4. Iris says:

    ‘The Bulls Eye’ of where the Official Story itself claims a 2,000 ton 757 going at over 550 mph hit the wall coming in at a c. 45 degree diagonal angle from the right/south

    A Boeing 757, nor any other commercial aircraft for that matter, cannot fly at 550 mph at sea level.

    A plane is maintained in the air by a vertical forced called “lift” , which counters the plane’s weight. The lift is created by the dynamic pressure of the air. At sea level, the air is much denser and a speed of 550 mph would have caused the plane’s wings to break inflight. The alleged 550 mph is a physical impossibility.

  5. Mel says:

    The 2001 anthrax attacks bring two words to mind, fish cpro. The photo editor and the mailman going to ER with his web pages of anthrax symptoms, plus the others, could have saved themselves. I lost all respect for the medical field after the deaths.

    In terms of the anthrax perp, i assume it was a freelancer acting on his own. The deep state pays individuals for their ‘technology’, but realizes freelancers are much more creative. I ‘m sure there was no order to take out the embarasser of Bush CIA lifer grand daughters. There didn’t have to be, it was a favor.

    After all this time, Mueller, the persecutor of Hatfill and Ivins, is again Mr. Respectable to the Democrat useful idiots. Amazing.

  6. Podcasts and videos suck. I want to read text. Much less unwieldy.

  7. I always enjoy listening to Barbara–she is so close to “getting it”.

    The “intelligence agencies” have a toolkit–and when they use it there are clear methods of operation.

    As she correctly notes “an overflow of information”, both valid and invalid, are one of those tools.

    That is one reason I am convinced (aside from any other claims by sources) that the “intelligence agencies” are behind the massive voter fraud this year.

    They used so many different types of fraud–totally muddying the waters–and then had their Mockingbird Media scream “no evidence”.

    Thus it was with JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X, 911, Vince Foster, Seth Rich, on and on and on and on…

    If the “right” and the “left” could stop screaming at each other long enough to pool their information, they would realize they had the same enemy…

  8. Iris says:

    In an interview he gave to Parade Magazine on Oct 12th, 2001, just one month after the tragedy, Donald Rumsfeld actual did say that the Pentagon was hit by a missile:

    Here we’re talking about plastic knives and using an American Airlines flight filed with our citizens, and the missile to damage this building [the Pentagon] and similar (inaudible) that damaged the World Trade Centre.

    The interview is still available on official websites:

    It is difficult to believe that this statement was completely random: an innocent slip of the tongue generally implies mixing of facts, not inventing them altogether.

  9. dimples says:

    I had no idea that American Airlines claimed that the type of data recorder found in the wreckage was not used in their planes. That’s a pretty strong statement from a corporation that would have quickly knuckled under to the official narrative.

  10. anon[311] • Disclaimer says:

    Afree lancer needs training ,knowledge , a lab and a sophisticated one .Needs protection from the system embodied by many actors at local state and federal levels . The administration of Cipro before the scare of anthrax by cabinet members, signing off to the Patriot Act, simultaneous blaming of Saddam by media and officials and the foreknowledge of the anthrax mailing by certain individual before anthrax had become public knowledge point to a public- private enterprise .

  11. anon[196] • Disclaimer says:

    It was Philip Jack and his other Israeli consort . They went in illegally .They informed the police and FBI that anthrax was mailed before public knew that it was mailed and before the anthrax hit the target .

    “This “mystery researcher” may have been someone at the very center of that “turbulent period,” one Philip Zack. Zack and a group of personnel at Ft. Detrick had been systematically harassing an Egyptian co-worker, Dr. Ayaad Assaad. The Courant reports:

    “Documents from the inquiry show that one unauthorized person who was observed entering the lab building at night was Langford’s predecessor, Lt. Col. Philip Zack, who at the time no longer worked at Fort Detrick. A surveillance camera recorded Zack being let in at 8:40 p.m. on Jan. 23, 1992, apparently by Dr. Marian Rippy, a lab pathologist and close friend of Zack’s, according to a report filed by a security guard.”

    The harassment of Assaad, detailed here, took on bizarrely juvenile forms: an obscene poem, a rubber camel delivered to his mailbox, a constant stream of racist anti-Arab remarks such as one might find posted these days on Little Green Footballs. Court documents reveal a harrowing experience of cruel and relentless persecution carried out by a small clique, including Zack, who called themselves the “camel club.”

    While the anthrax letters received enormous publicity, one mailed missive that might provide a key clue to the identity of the perpetrators has received very little: an anonymous letter, sent in late September before the anthrax drama unfolded, to the military police at the Marine base in Quantico, Va., accused Dr. Assaad of being behind a terrorist plot to unleash biological horrors in American cities. The author revealed a detailed knowledge of Dr. Assaad’s career at USAMRIID and claimed to have formerly worked with him.

    Assaad was interrogated by the FBI on Oct. 3, then let go after the letter was determined to be a hoax.

    The Courant reports FBI spokesman Chris Murray saying “the FBI is not tracking the source of the anonymous letter, despite its curious timing, coming a matter of days before the existence of anthrax-laced mail became known.”

    An Egyptian scientist, albeit one who is an American citizen and had lived in this country for quite some time, had been set up as the scapegoat for the crime – before knowledge of the mailed anthrax was generally known.
    hate campaign generated by virulently anti-Arab co-workers at Ft. Detrick, at least one of whom was videotaped surreptitiously entering the lab at night (after he had been dismissed from his position and was not authorized to enter in any event).

    Whoever wrote the poison pen letter denouncing Dr. Assaad as a potential terrorist in all likelihood knows something about the origins of the anthrax attack. In this context, the crudeness of the messages accompanying the anthrax – “death to America” and “death to Israel” – seems like an obvious effort to divert attention away from the real authors of a crime that goes unsolved to this day.”
