With the anniversary of the tragic September 11 attacks upon us, Americans are spending their day remembering the horrifying events and mourning the loss of their fellow countrymen.
While half of America will go on to spend the remainder of their day doing other more pleasant tasks to take their minds off the disturbing memories, the other half of America, 150 million of your fellow friends and neighbors, will take up the torch once again in a demand for the truth behind the events of September 11, 2001.
Over the past decade, millions of Americans including scientists, engineers, architects, firemen, policemen, reporters, elected officials and scholars from all walks of life, have signed their names to various petitions and requests demanding the truth about 9/11. While we may never truly know what happened that fateful day in 2001, the official government account does nothing but invite skepticism and doubt. One recent survey of Europeans shows that a full 90 percent of respondents believe the US government lied about 9/11 and was either directly involved in the attacks, or a willing and aware victim.
Earlier this week, we at Whiteout Press attempted to provide both sides of the argument. See our two articles for more information: ‘Was 9/11 an Inside Job?’ and ‘Arguments from 9/11 Conspiracy Debunkers’.
For today’s historic column, we decided to bring our readers the most challenging and responsibly produced movie questioning the government’s version of 9/11. While there are tens of thousands of videos, articles and books out there, ‘Loose Change’ is by far the most well-known and documented. Unlike most other conspiracy theorists, the producers of Loose Change are sincere in their efforts, not to hurt America, but instead to protect her.
This documentary has been reproduced two or three times in an effort to provide only the most accurate and documented facts. If you, our Whiteout Press readers, watch one documentary questioning the official account of September 11, make it this one. Below, we will transcribe the first couple minutes of the documentary to give a sense of the unbelievable facts this video uncovers. Watch the full video below.
From the 9/11 documentary, ‘Loose Change 9/11’:
- “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center.” – National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice
- “There were lots of warnings.” – Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
- “No warnings” – Press Secretary Ari Fleischer
- “Your government failed you. And I failed you.” – White House Advisor Richard Clarke
March 13, 1962 – The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff presents a proposal to the Secretary of Defense named, ‘Operation Northwoods’. The document proposed staging terrorist attacks in and around Guantanamo Bay to provide a pretext for military intervention in Cuba. The program included the staging of fake terror campaigns in both Miami and Washington DC. It also suggested sinking American naval ships and destroying American military aircraft. The plan also eerily details the steps by which the CIA would produce a look-alike commercial airliner, filled with CIA agents posing as college students on vacation. The plane would then secretly switch places with an unmanned aircraft posing as the commercial airliner. Finally, the drone would be destroyed over Cuban airspace after transmitting a “Mayday” call. The plan was ultimately rejected by the Secretary of Defense and President Kennedy removed the Chairman from the Joint Chiefs.

October 24, 2000 – The Pentagon conducts the first of two training exercises which simulate a Boeing 757 crashing into the building.

And that ends Whiteout Press’ introduction to the video ‘Loose Change’. The above is a direct transcript of the first seven minutes. We thought we would bring this famous documentary to our readers because they might not ever see it any other way. And while the American media saturates the public with footage beginning on the morning of 9/11, we thought we would be one of the few media outlets bringing you the news leading up to the morning of 9/11. For that’s where the real story is.
