Last week, veteran airline captain, former government "special activities" contract pilot, and leading aviation expert on the September 11th attack, 54-year old Philip Marshall (left) supposedly killed his two teenage children, 14-year-old Macaila Marshall, and 17-year-old Alex Marshall, his dog and then himself in what appears to be a double murder-suicide. Of course, the few headlines that you'll read about this tragedy tout him as one of those horrific "conspiracy theorists," implying this is what these wretched people do.
And that's all it takes, just mention, "conspiracy theorist", and all logic, reason, critical thinking, common sense, etc., goes out the window, because god-forbid you get the label "conspiracy theorist". You better accept the official story, even when those official stories are riddled with glaring inconsistencies, giant holes, magical explanations and downright Orwellian idiocy.
Now, it's not that conspiracies do not exist, they do, however, in the U.S., the only people capable of evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plans formulated in secret by two or more persons are We the Useless Eaters. You see, the most powerful and privileged class are incapable of creating surreptitious or covert schemes to accomplish some end. Never mind that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Never mind that the history of the United States is chock full of well-documented conspiracies at the highest levels. Never mind that that powerful people will do whatever they have to in order to preserve themselves and the established order. The bottom line is that by labeling and discrediting researchers, questioners, and the inquisitive-minded, the powers that be can keep the truth from worthless and highly annoying masses.
But if you've read any of Phillip Marshall's books, the latest being, The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror, listened to any of his interviews, or read about his history flying planes for the CIA during Iran Contra, and do not question the official story, at least a little bit, you must've drank more than your share of the Kool-Aid.
Philip Marshall was a fairly sturdy guy, it seems. In the 1980s he flew missions for the U.S. government in connection with the DEA and CIA including a DEA sting on Pablo Escobar, and later participated in the covert arming of the Nicaraguan Contras. Marshall researched and wrote 30-years worth of covert government special activities and about the revolving door of Wall Street tricksters, media moguls, and their well funded politicians.
Here's what Philip Marshall wrote days before on Jan 24, 2013. The title of this site is The Big Bamboozle
"One Saudi official in particular, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Saudi Ambassador to the United States from 1983 to 2005, was quickly traced to direct funding of the hijackers, through cashier’s checks, not from him he would say, but from his wife. Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, Maine Senator Susan Collins and Florida Senator Bob Graham learned that Saudi officials had directed agents in the United States to assist the future hijackers. These senators would quietly back out of the investigation after the White House threatened them with “leaking classified information” and a criminal probe. Senator Graham was told in no uncertain terms to back off and shut up in telephone calls from Vice President Cheney. This evidence alone on the Saudis provided more plausibility than two chapters of KSM’s ramblings. Here was opportunity to provide airplanes and instructors for hijackers who were solidly linked to Saudi operatives working for Prince Bandar."It's interesting to note that last year, two former American senators--Bob Graham and Bob Kerrey-- involved in federal inquiries regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks asked the US to re-examine the possibility that Saudi Arabia played a pivotal role in the tragedy, which is at the heart of Phillip Marshall's book. Of course, the Bush Administration played the Saudi role down as much as possible--even giving the Bin-Ladens special flying privileges only hours after that fateful day whilst every one else in the USA was grounded--distracting us, instead, on Afghanistan first, then Iraq.
This firm belief in a Saudi Royal Family and Government connection has been sworn to by both Graham and Kerrey in open federal district court. These legal statements were made within the context of a multi-billion dollar lawsuit that is finally allowed to proceed against the Saudi Government and Royal family by the families of the 9/11 victims. In Graham's book, "Intelligence Matters," he makes clear that some details of that financial support from Saudi Arabia were in the 27 pages of the congressional inquiry's final report that were blocked from release by the administration, despite the pleas of leaders of both parties on the House and Senate intelligence committees.
Why "suicide" him and murder his family after the book is already out? Wouldn't that draw more attention? While it might draw more attention to his book, the fact that he was purportedly insane enough to kill his kids, himself and his dog certainly discredits everything he has to say, and at the same time, sending a clear message to those who might try to expose the un-exposable.
Of course, there is the very real possibility that the news as it is reported "officially" here, may very well be accurate. Nevertheless, that should not mean we can't ask questions to ascertain its validity, especially, considering how many lies we've been told.
New evidence links Saudis to 9/11
"Weeks after terrorists brought down the World Trade Center, FBI agents swarmed into a Sarasota gated community to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a wealthy young Saudi couple who apparently had ties to some of the hijackers. The couple and their two children abandoned their home abruptly, just a week or so before Sept. 11, leaving behind cars, furniture and food on countertops. According to one published report, the FBI discovered phone calls between the house and at least two of the hijackers and several other terrorism suspects stretching back a year. Yet until a Fort Lauderdale website reported the news this week, no mention of the couple has ever appeared publicly — not in the Sept. 11 commission report, nor in FBI briefings to congressional investigators, former Florida Sen. Bob Graham said Friday.
