VIDEO: Did 9/11 Trutherism Cause Bedell Pentagon Shooting?

By Debbie Schlussel

Kudos to ABC News and its reporter, Chris Bury, for this.  I think they did a GREAT job exposing these nuts in the 9/11 Truther movement (and stressing the link between them and John Patrick Bedell, the Pentagon shooter).  Not that we didn’t already know.  But terrific job by the mainstream media, and Bury really covered all of the bases, including Jesse Ventura, Debra Medina, and Van Jones (he only missed Ron Paul).  This report ran on “Nightline,” Monday Night. So disappointed in former FBI agent Colleen Rowley. What a dud she turned out to be. So sad.

Remember . . .

This is just typical of ABC and other mainstream media channels, some worse than others, making assumptions and connections without all the facts. We are suppose to believe this report on the 9/11 controversy just because ABC said so? Anyone can manipulate facts to tell any story they want. This video has pointed out nothing new to debunk anything about what the Truthers say. I also don’t believe the Bush administration had anything to do with 9/11; they were too stupid for something so complex without giving the game away. But I do believe something’s is wrong with the big picture about 9/11 and what really happened is still under wraps. And if people here want to swallow the kool-aid that’s their loss.

Many of the same idiots who believe what MSM tells them are the same people who claim to distrust their government, the same government that’s been running their lives no matter which party was running the show during the last four decades. What they forget is that MSM, both Republican and Democratic parties, and government are leveraged by the corporate elite who make sure the money goes to the right people and organizations so they can run this country. The same idiots who trust what the 9/11 commission told them: “move on folks, nothing to see here”, protest, as the Teabaggers, government intrusion into their lives, yet they believe what their government tells them about 9/11.

I’ve visited the Debbie Schlussel blog now for a day or so and I’ve had enough. This is not a news source. It is a gossip page. When Der Speigel very briefly mentioned Schlussel on the Muslim army shooter in Texas, she made a comment which showed she had absolutely no understanding of what was being said about her since she cannot read German. Good luck folks, I’m out of here, going where they write the real news.

    “I’ve visited the Debbie Schlussel blog now for a day or so and I’ve had enough. This is not a news source. It is a gossip page.”

    It is is an opinion page, and not a news service. Are you entirely too dense to ascertain the difference? Also, do you make blanket judgments based upon one look at a website? That is pretty silly and witless. Do you make other decisions about your life on that basis?

    “Anyone can manipulate facts to tell any story they want. This video has pointed out nothing new to debunk anything about what the Truthers say”

    So, by your logic nothing you read could be true, since it could be manipulated by someone, right? So, knowing anything about anything would be utterly impossible. Did you drop out of school at around 12? It really sounds like it with your childish logic.

    As for anything new to say, why does anything new have to be brought up? The 9/11 matter has been examined again and again for years, but the Truthers will not accept any of the results that do not correspond to their respective conspiracy theories. Do I need to list the commissions, private entities, and other groups who have looked into the matter over the past 8 years?

    If you have something serious to say, please let us know. It sounds more like you have your conspiracy fantasies set up the way you like them, and that you really hate people who challenge them. Why not get a job and get a life, or at least have your caregiver take the pacifier out of your mouth?

    sorrow01 on March 10, 2010 at 3:12 am

      I believe our government was envolved in some way, completely responsible? no. but involved, you have to admit there is enough there to at least question, you cant explain Building 7 coming down due to the small fires that were caught on film, the truth people or whatever have at least tried to explain and give evidence about their stand, our governments response was a joke

      Oh Well on March 10, 2010 at 5:51 am

      mainstream media should be everyones last resort

      Oh Well on March 10, 2010 at 5:59 am

    And where do you suppose the “real news” is written at?
    How can you say this site has no news on it when you’ve admittedly only read it for one day? Sow now your an expert of what is news and what is not? And you can discern the difference in one day without ever digging deeper into what is written on this site? I suppose you can say her Movie reviews are NOT news, but she never claims that they are….

    Who cares? on March 10, 2010 at 10:42 am

It is amazing that this is still an issue with anyone outside of the Islamic World and John Birch Society. Islamists like to project their guilt on to others and find new and improved ways to attack Israel, but what is the excuse of these others? Why are they even treated like serious people, rather than as the freaks that they are. If someone really believes that the U.S. Government arranged for the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for invading Afghanistan and Iraq, they should really put there money where their mouth is and leave the country and renounce their citizenship. If the United States is as truly evil as that, why are they even a part of it, and thus complicit? It really is time to confront these characters, since hey have proven themselves to be a danger to others.

sorrow01 on March 10, 2010 at 2:58 am

    it is far more dangerous not to question things, I am thankful to be an American, but that doesnt mean that I dont think its become a wicked country, if we go off of what you just said we would still be under Englands rule, go get a US history book, see how this country was born, people questioned who was ruling them and said we can do better, they didnt pack their bags and move, make America better is the goal, dangerous to others, really?

    Oh Well on March 10, 2010 at 6:11 am

Even Cheney admits that Osama Bin Laden had nothing to do with 9/11. Its all a farce what you people believe. A farce supported by an establishment which wants you to fight wars in central asia and do their bidding. This country is so screwed up that living in europe or canada and getting away from ignorant people like you is a tempting option. I know the future of this country is not bright considering the lies that people have accepted. can you explain how building seven fell? more then fifty stories steel fram building that had a small fire and fell in a matter of seconds to the ground? demolition. i wont waste my time anymore on you people. wallow in your lies.

andrew mangold on March 10, 2010 at 3:46 am

Mossad did 9/11. Why were 3 mossad agents detained and quickly released to Israel on 9/11 in NYC? They were cheering and high fiving one another.

Jews did 9/11 on March 10, 2010 at 3:57 am

    Yeah yeah… the “joooooos” did 911, they invented christianity to control the world, the own all the media and banks, blah blah blah they did the holocaust… oh wait, there was no holocast… but hitler should have finished the job… they use blood of “goyim” to make matza and hamantaschen pastries…. and yet they fight over a piece of dirt the size of New Jersey, which has SHRUNK in joooo controlled area since 1948…

    they’re rats…no they’re viruses…. they’re dirt poor scum… they’re filthy rich scum….

    meanwhile…. WE’RE STILL HERE! And those who attack us are…. NOT.

    Ask the Canonites, Philistines, Romans, Persians, Babylonians, Nazis, etc. etc. etc.

    Who’s next…??? People like YOU, Jew hater! Purim Fest 2010!

    Doda McCheesle on March 10, 2010 at 9:27 am

ABC did not mention Ron Paul because he is NOT a “9/11 Truther” – see
Debra Medina also should not have been mentioned in the video because she also does not support the “9/11 Truthers”. She said that “…some very good questions have been raised in that regard” and that she has “not seen all of the evidence (that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way) there” and that she had “not taken a position” on the matter.
On a related note, the following is an excerpt from an article entitled “State Crimes Against Democracy”
by Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff dated March 8, 2010 at

“Sometimes even new academic research goes largely unreported when the work contradicts prevailing understandings of recent historical events. A specific case of unreported academic research is the peer-reviewed journal article from Open Chemical Physics Journal (Volume 2, 2009), entitled “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust for the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe.” In the abstract the authors write, “We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples. These red/gray chips show marked similarities in all four samples. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.” Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of a metal powder and a metal oxide which produces an aluminothermic reaction known as a thermite reaction and is used in controlled demolitions of buildings.” – read

Ms. Schussel is Mensa, fluent in several non-European languages, and correct more often than any other news outlet. Check the “About Debbie” at top.

Additionally, she’s done much pro-bono legal work for righteousness. Unlike most “big time” law firms,” she’s not even charged for own expenses.

This site is nor only NOT gossip, but cutting-edge reporting.

What are your credentials Sir/Ma’am?

Jew Lover on March 10, 2010 at 5:06 am

    you are aware that Mensa means stupid girl in Spanish, right? I remember my sisters using it all the time, I always thought that was funny for an intellectual organization, or maybe they meant that as a joke, dont know

    Oh Well on March 10, 2010 at 6:19 am

      Yea, and Chicago means “I Shit” in Italian so what’s your point?

      Who cares? on March 10, 2010 at 10:46 am

        My point Who Cares?, is that its funny that an intellectual organization in one language is called stupid girl, is that not obvious, are you a member, dont try to start shit, oops I forgot you’re Who cares?

        Oh Well on March 10, 2010 at 2:33 pm

I am pro-Israel and anti-Islam but I don’t smear or imply that all Muslims are terrorists, or potentially so, which Schlussel seems to do every time she gets the opportunity. Islam is a primitive and brutal religion as robust and destructive as Christianity once was and needs to be reigned in. Schlussel has her hand into many areas, jack of all trades, master of none, and would do better to stick to what she knows, which I’m still wondering about. She presents nothing in depth. Her studies are in law and business, not history or the humanities.

Jew Lover said: “Ms. Schussel is Mensa, fluent in several non-European languages, and correct more often than any other news outlet. Check the “About Debbie” at top.”

Her bio in About mentions nothing about MENSA unless I missed it. I “speak” 8 European languages but I am fluent in none. It is no accomplishment. But to brag “she speaks Hebrew, Arabic, French, and Russian” is like hyping up a resume because, notice, there’s no fluency level mentioned there. She makes comments about De Speigel, as the first commentator noted, without understanding the language.

    scholarsavantsage on March 10, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Once again I will give my first hand account of my 911 connection.

Three months before 911 I was picking my sister-in-law up at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.
It was close to half a mile walk from where I parked to the security checkpoint. I got to the security booth and realized I still had my clip-on knife on my back pocket.

You wouldn’t dream of doing this today, but remember this was pre-911, I told the security guard what I had done and asked if I could please leave the knife here and pick it up on the way out.
She asked to see the knife. She measured the blade and said’ You’re okay.” and handed the knife back to me.
I asked her directly “You mean I could get on a plane with this?”
She replied “Yes, the blade is less than 4 inches long.”
The terrorists found the same loophole that I had stumbled upon and carried knifes and box cutters on planes and highjacked them.

End of story, it didn’t take millions of dollars and high level government officials to pull something like off.
If I had had a suicide wish and found 18 others like me, with at least 4 of them pilots, I could have pulled off a 911 like attack.

smg45acp on March 10, 2010 at 8:48 am

ABC got it slightly wrong the jet fuel did not completely (they did not use this word) melt the steel foundation. The fires from the jet fuel weakened the modulus of rigidity (strength) of the steel. The foundation steel then collapsed because they could not hold up the weight of the building. Any decent Engineer would know this. The only problem is that because of racial quotas and other academic lowering of standard a lot of Engineer should not have graduated. The Arab oil producing countries were the big winner due to the spike in oil prices.

madman on March 10, 2010 at 8:58 am

    And so how do you suppose Building #7 imploded without ever being hit by a plane?
    Did the Jet fuel decide to take a detour from the 100th floor of one building, and move all it’s energy to another building across the street, all by itself?

    Who cares? on March 10, 2010 at 10:59 am

Oh Well says: “…you cant explain Building 7 coming down due to the small fires that were caught on film…”

Exactly right, but only of you accept that those fires were the ONLY fires.
There are plenty of WTC7 pix online that show how that building’s corner had been scooped away by falling debris.

Majority of the 9/11 truthers complain that they get shouted down or ridiculed whenever they ‘ask questions’.
But that’s not really true.
They get shot down and ridculed because they keep asking the same questions over and over, long after they’ve been answered.

Face it, folks:
A big piece of ice sank the Titanic
Oswald killed JFK
We landed on the moon
Mumia killed Danny Faulkner
Muslim hijackers were responsible for 9/11

guitarguy on March 10, 2010 at 10:15 am

    Yes, the Islamists and Truthers came out in force for this one, which is to be expected. As you stated, these people keep claiming that they are shut down and harassed for questioning 9/11. The confrontations and ridicule come from their dredging up the same old conspiracy theories and not accepting any answer that does not confirm their preconceived notions about Zionism, secret schemes, and cover-ups. You are dealing with the same sort of crowd who calls up Art Bell and claims that they were abducted by aliens. Their views are not subject to refutation or rational argument, since they are of a quasi-religious nature. However, the 9/11 Truthers are potentially dangerous, unlike the the alien abduction crowd.

Suburban housewife Betsy Metz bet $20k of her own money to organize the con @ Valley Forge. The ABC reporter stated hundreds attended. Didn’t look like it reached 200 attendees from the video. Some folks have too much time and money on their hands. $20k loose change these folks did not or were not able to present a single iota of new evidence to support their theories. Expensive lesson to learn.

(Doda – your comment above is a keeper! Luv it! I am so swiping it!)

wtd on March 10, 2010 at 11:06 am

It’s like the amount of crime the nation of islam inflicts upon jews and whites by beating the drum of resentment and hate.

A friend of my sons who owns a gym, began speaking to me about Bush and swerved right into 911 truther bullshit. He was too busy trying to talk to the guys daughters to realize when the conversation went side ways as he tried to over talk me and I escalated my volume, not to be over talked.

These people are about as mentally ill as most of the climate change retards are. I’d like to send them to Venezuela to live.

Joe on March 10, 2010 at 11:27 am

Kudos to ABC news. The truthers are fringe nut jobs (similar to those suffering from paranoid delusions.) Trutherism has no place in mainstream politics.

It’s unfortunate that a Jesse Ventura (perhaps he took one too many blows to the head during his wrestling career?) is able to make television shows featuring and promoting his crazed conspiracy theories.

J.S. on March 10, 2010 at 11:34 am

Trusting the mainstream media for your “truth” is nuts. I admit that many of the truthers are crazy, but many of them are not and have a very good argument. I think the crazy ones just feel betrayed.

Problems with WTC towers…

1. Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at near free fall speed.

2. Improbable symmetry of debris distribution.

3. Rapid onset of destruction.

4. Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes.

5. Steel sections wearing several tons ejected laterally 600 feet.

6. Mid air pulverization of 90,000 tons of metal and concrete decking.

7. Blasting caps and Thermite found in debris by FEMA.

I could go on but dont want to.

I am neither the left or right party, I am the party that is Love, not separation.

    I know this has been asked before, but do these 911 Truthers and conspiracy wackos really believe that the U.S. gov’t would actually kill 3,000 people, firefighters and policemen in the WTC? I have absolutely no trust in the gov’t, but to believe the gov’t did this is sick, sick, sick. I doubt even the worst of our Presidents (BHO, Carter,…) would even consider something like this.

    Most of these truthers and wackos more than likely do not have an engineering degree, let alone a structural engineering degree. Explain something to me truthers – How do you suppose the extreme amount of explosives needed to bring down these structures were brought into the WTC? Why is it that none of the security guards or other personnel noticed this type of activity? Why is it that nobody else noticed this type of activity? And how do you explain that no one for the past 8+ years has said anything about being involved in the destruction of the WTC? An operation like this would take many people, and I am certain that not 100% of them would keep their mouths shut.

    Jarhead on March 10, 2010 at 12:55 pm


    Had there been explosives used, what evidence would all those investigators, steelworkers and demolition
    workers have seen at Ground Zero? Bill Moore of Brandenburg Industrial Service Co., former president of the
    National Demolition Association:

    “Explosives used to demolish steel are called ‘linear-shape charges.’ They cut steel
    like a hot knife through butter and leave a very distinctive looking cut plus a copper
    residue. Just putting [normal] explosives on a piece of steel would do nothing unless
    the amount was huge. That huge amount would have blown out every window in
    Manhattan from the sound pressure.”
    Brent Blanchard, senior writer at
    “Our team, working at Ground Zero, including myself, never saw indication of explosive
    use that would have been evident after the event. You just can’t clean up all the det
    cord, shock tube, blasting cap remnants, copper backing from explosive charges, burn
    marks along clean-cut edges of columns, etc., nor is there any evidence in the
    thousands of photos taken by the press and dozens of agencies over the following
    days. I just can’t see how it happened that way.”

    And I repeat:

Another element to these conspiracy theories which was not explored in the piece, is how much antisemitism plays a part in these movements, as many “truthers” like to also blame Israel and “Zionists” for 9/11. In fact, I see more people blaming Israel for 9/11 than the US Government. This propaganda is alive and well throughout the internet. There are millions of people out there helping to support it and making it grow.

guitarguy on March 10, 2010 at 1:12 pm

I think I finally figured it out, and the Truthers may be right that the gov’t conspired to blow up the WTC. The U.S. gov’t hired people to smuggle the explosives into the WTC in their underwear.

Jarhead on March 10, 2010 at 1:28 pm


“I know this has been asked before, but do these 911 Truthers and conspiracy wackos really believe that the U.S. gov’t would actually kill 3,000 people, firefighters and policemen in the WTC?”

Not a 9/11 truther, but it isn’t as if our government has proven incapable of such atrocities before. Of course, if you say such things, conservatives will label you “anti-American.” Again, I am am not a 9/11 truther. I am just someone who wonders why those fellows were A) allowed in this country in the first place despite being known violent radicals, B) were allowed to spend months (years) training on our shores and C) were allowed to buy one way tickets with cash and no luggage. And you know … other stuff like that.

Inside job by the government? Most likely not. But did our government (and various other people and entities) have much more information in advance than they are letting on? Perhaps. There is a huge gulf between “inside job” and the official party line, and that is what the 911 truthers are capitalizing on.

Gerald on March 10, 2010 at 1:44 pm


Racial quotas causing bad engineers? You are just a racist, plain and simple. Barely 10% of engineers are black and Hispanic. 90% are white and Asian. Racists masquerading as conservatives like you who WAY overplay the affirmative action card keep ignoring the fact that only a tiny percentage of engineers, doctors, lawyers, architechts etc. are black or Hispanic, and furthermore a sizable chuck of the blacks who do exist in those fields went to predominantly black colleges and to universities that aren’t very selective that don’t use quotas to begin with.

You are like the typical Rush Limbaugh/Sean Hannity caller or Free Republic commenter who one second complains about unqualified blacks taking all the jobs and college spots from white people and the next second complains about all the blacks that are high school dropouts, criminals and on welfare. You folks lack the sense to realize that both sets of pathologies that “conservatives” like to blame on minorities cannot be possibly true at the same time. That is, unless high school dropout gang members are getting engineering degrees from UCLA and managerial jobs at IBM while collecting their welfare checks.

I guess folks like you see a company with 100 employees and get absolutely livid because ONLY 98 of them are white. So, the lone Hispanic MUST be an illegal immigrant, and the lone black employee MUST be a quota hire, they BOTH are on welfare, right?

Gerald on March 10, 2010 at 1:50 pm

The guy was nmentally ill. You are a fascist for attacking anyone who doesn;t agree with 9/11 and holocast. He didn’t do the attack cas 9/11 but 9/11 was caused by our support for Israel and you support Israel American support so we can thanks all these zionist ashkenazis for 9/11.

Steve on March 10, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    So, anyone who does not agree with your fantasies about 9/11 and the Holocaust is a fascist huh? That must make most of the people outside of your mosque fascists. Do you call everyone you do not like or disagree with a fascist?

The criminal bankers like Rothschild worked with the CIA, another bunch of mafia parasitical fools who are the ruling class committed 9/11. Al-Qaeda is a CIA operative driven by one Zbigniew Brzenski, yes MSNBCIA’s Mika’s daddy!

The real story on this attack has not been told. For people to say 9/11 truth wants to spawn violence, is playing into the psyop-fueled corporate media along with Operation Mockingbird, which worked with communists and the CIA to infiltrate news media outlets. One of its most famous graduates, the thankfully deceases globalist Walter Cronkite. Glenn Beck is the latest member of Mockingbird, along with Rachel Maddow, Olbermann and O’Reilly. Global media can’t be trusted anymore. And a hit piece like that from ABC will further imbalance the false left-right paradigm set up by these global elites for carbon taxes, gun grabs and violations of the Constitution.

And in his book Ridge admitted staging attacks…VIOLATING THE GUBMINT’S OWN UNCONSTITUTIONAL Patriot Act.

Meme is right the crazy ones are the ones betrayed. And these are the ones the global media spotlights to prove to their foreign bankster puppetmasters like Murdoch and the Saudi Prince that dissent isn’t patriotism. Anyone ever consider that?

And there ladies and gentlemen is an example of how an idea can be blasted out of proportion even if it does mean saying when the Rothschilds were formed in the 1740’s, they used a certain 6-sided symbol. I give you from this site…

“1743: Mayer Amschel Bauer, born Frankfurt, Germany, the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, a money lender and the proprietor of a counting house. Over the entrance door he places a red sign.

This sign is a six pointed star (which geometrically and numerically translates into the number 666) which under Rothschild instruction will end up on the Israeli flag some two centuries later. ”

This was certainly not taught in schools by hippie progressive profs!

My quote was
“The only problem is that because of racial quotas and other academic lowering of standard a lot of Engineer should not have graduated.”

You obviously missed other academic lowering of standard, but if they have to lower standard for non white, non oriental to graduate they also allowed a lot of dim whit white to graduate as well even those dim whit whites still would score higher than affirmative action candidates.

I wasted half to ¾ of my time trying to explain some low IQ office politician (brown noser) who should not have graduated. Education is very limited in improving people intelligence and complex problem solving ability.

madman on March 10, 2010 at 7:44 pm

Shy Guy, it’s called opening the mind more and the legs less…it’s also purging my mind of corporate media driven phony paradigms on the left and right.

Even hear of Operation Mockingbird? The CIA conspired with Communists to infiltrate newsrooms of America. Walter Cronkite and Ed Murrow were perhaps the two most known people who were a part of Mockingbird…


“By the 1950s, according to Alex Constantine (Mockingbird: The Subversion Of The Free Press By The CIA), “some 3,000 salaried and contract CIA employees were eventually engaged in propaganda efforts.” Wisner was also able to restrict newspapers from reporting about certain events. For example, the CIA plots to overthrow the governments of Iran and Guatemala.

During the brief period in the 1970s mentioned above, the Church Committee (Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities) revealed that Operation Mockingbird was alive and well.

“The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred foreign individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets,” the Church Committee reported in 1975.

Operation Mockingbird, then and now, is all about keeping the American people in the dark as the elite perpetuate highly profitable war and endless crimes against humanity. “It is primarily from U.S. citizens that the U.S. Government must keep the true nature and real purpose of so many of its domestic and foreign acts secret while it manufactures fear and falsehood to manipulate the U.S. public,” write Ellen Ray and William H. Schaap (Covert Action: the Roots of Terrorism).”

Bob Porrazzo on March 11, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    Operation Mockingbird was against communists and liberals, not for them.

    Your sources are baseless – both in legs to stand on and brains to think with.

    Try to overcome the paranoia you’ve acquired through believing every conspiracy crackpot who tickles your fancy.

Sad and frightening this is what’s become of mainstream ‘journalism’.

‘Kudos’ to ABC for resorting to ad hominem and guilt by association fallacies in an attempt to character assassinate people for simply seeking reasonable answers to reasonable questions?

That it is by such means that the mainstream media report on the 9/11 Truth movement should be instructive to viewers. Why not simply address the facts?

That’s yet another unanswered question.

The American Government sent Millions to die in World war 2 and the Middle east, so what’s the worry to them about 3,000 mixee civilians of varying patriotism?

The traitors (Ron Paul’s Nazis and the other Muslim Jihad facilitators) are out in full force. Every time a terrorist act is committed against American troops and civilians, you can thank the anti-Semites who have taken the focus off of Islam’s mandated war against the infidels…

The year 2001 should not be repeated
