WHAT MATTERS 80 --April 22, 2002
The September 11 Grand Coup The author of Frances best-selling book on
9.11 makes serious allegations and calls for a UN supervised commission of
Dear list members,
Evidence is mounting that the 9.11 attacks were part of a Grand Coup for
world domination. Below is the transcript of a presentation that adds
urgency to the need to uncover the facts. The presentation was given by
Thierry Meyssan, the author of the book 11 septembre 2001: l'Effroyable
imposture (Paris: Editions Carnot, 2002), which is selling like hot cakes
in France. Thierry Meyssan was speaking at a gathering organized by The Arab
League, and attended by the diplomatic corps and the international press
corps, at the Zayed Center in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) on April 8.
I have the term Grand Coup from Richard Moore, who is responsible for the
Cyberjournal web site (PS1). In the e-mail introducing the Thierry Meyssan
talk to Cyberjournal list members, Richard comments:
911 was a grand coup. In a minor coup, some General takes over the
government of a single country. In a Grand Coup the entire world order is
transformed. The whole Enlightenment heritage has been abandoned:
constitutional government, civil liberties, balance of powers, government
accountability. International law has been abandoned, and national
sovereignty is becoming a subject for nostalgia buffs. Police state
legislation has been passed not just in the USA, the alleged target of
terrorism, but throughout the West, in the so-called modern democracies.
In the EU, the official definition of terrorism now includes any civil
disobedience whose objective is to change the economic system.
This was a Global Grand Coup, with historic significance on a par with the
fall of Rome, the Industrial Revolution, or the birth of Christianity. It
marks the beginning of a new Era, what right-wingers call The New World
Order. In some sense, we are simply seeing capitalism finally forced to
show its true face. In another sense, which amounts to the same thing, we
are seeing Hitler's vision of a Thousand Year Reich being finally realized
by the same crowd that funded fascism in the first place.
Perhaps my words seem a bit extreme. If so, that's because we are so far
only seeing the establishment of new infrastructures, and the propagation of
new mythologies. It won't become obvious where this is all leading until
it's too late. And then most of us will be persuaded to blame some outside
cause, most likely some version of terrorism. The media matrix reality is
the hypnotic trance that seduces the public frog into tolerating the rising
temperature in the simmering pot.
I dont consider Richards words a bit extreme. Not at all.

WHO WAS BEHIND THE SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH ATTACKS?
A presentation by Thierry Meyssan at the Zayed Center in Abu Dhabi (United
Arab Emirates) on April 8, and posted at
Your Highness, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
In the first minutes following the first attack on the World Trade Center,
officials suggested to the media that the person behind the attacks was
Osama bn Laden, the epitome of Muslim fanaticism. Not long after, the
recently appointed director of the FBI, Robert Mueller III, designated
nineteen kamikazes by name and mobilized all the means at the disposal of
his agency to track down their accomplices. The FBI thus never undertook any
investigation but, instead, organized a man hunt, which, in the eyes much of
the United States public, quickly took on the appearance of an Arab hunt.
This reached such a pitch that people were incited to attack - even kill -
Arabs whom they naively considered collectively responsible for the attacks.
There was no investigation by Congress, which, at the request of the White
House, renounced exercising its constitutional role, supposedly in order not
to adversely affect national security. Nor was there investigation by any
media representatives, who had been summoned to the White House and
prevailed upon to abstain from following up any leads lest such inquiries
also adversely affect national security.
If we analyze the attacks of September the eleventh, we notice first off
that there was much more to them than the official version acknowledges.
1.We know about only four planes, whereas at one point it was a question of
eleven planes. Further, an examination of the insider-trading conducted in
relation to the attacks shows put-option speculative trading in the stock of
three airline companies: American Airlines, United Airlines and KLM Royal
2. The official version does not include the attack on the White House
annex, the Old Executive Office Building (called the "Eisenhower Building").
Yet, on the morning of the eleventh, ABC television broadcast, live,
pictures of a fire ravaging the presidential services building.
3. Neither does the official version take into account the collapse of a
third building in Manhattan World Trade Center complex, independently of the
twin towers. This third building was not hit by a plane. However, it, too,
was ravaged by a fire before collapsing for an unknown reason. This building
contained the world's biggest secret CIA operations base, where the Agency
engaged in economic intelligence gathering that the military-industrial
lobby considered a waste of resources that should have been devoted to
strategic intelligence gathering.
If we look closely at the attack against the Pentagon, we notice that the
official version amounts to an enormous lie.
According to the Defense Department, a Boeing 757, all trace of which had
been lost somewhere over Ohio, flew some 500 kilometers (300 miles) without
being noticed. It supposedly entered Pentagon air space and descended on to
the lawn surrounding the heliport, bounced off the lawn, broke a wing in
collision with an electric transformer station, hit the façade at the level
of the ground floor and first story, and was totally consumed by fire,
leaving no other traces than two dysfunctional black boxes and pieces of
It is obviously impossible that a Boeing 757 could, for some 500 kilometers,
escape detection by civil and military radar, by fighter-bomber planes sent
in pursuit of it and by observation satellites that had just been activated.
It is also obviously impossible that a Boeing 757 could enter the Pentagon's
air space without being destroyed by one or more of the five missile
batteries protecting the building.
When one examines the photographs of the façade, taken in the minutes
following the attack (even before the Arlington civilian fire fighters had
time to deploy), one sees no trace of the right wing on fire in front of the
façade, nor any hole in the façade into which the plane could have been
Apparently without the least fear of laying itself open to ridicule, the
Defense Department declared that the jet engines, made out of tempered
steel, had disintegrated under the shock of the impact - without damaging
the façade. The aluminum of the fuselage is claimed to have combusted at
more than 2,500° Celsius within the building and to have been transformed
into gas, but the bodies of the passengers which it contained were so little
burned that they were later identified from their finger prints.
Responding to journalists during a press conference at the Pentagon, the
fire chief claimed that "no voluminous debris from the aircraft" had
remained, "nor any piece of the fuselage, nor anything of that sort". He
declared that neither he nor his men knew what had become of the aircraft.
Close examination of the official photographs of the scene of the attack,
taken and published by the Defense Department, shows that no part of the
Pentagon bears any mark of an impact that could be attributed to the crash
of a Boeing 757.
One must acknowledged the evidence: it is impossible that the attack against
the Pentagon on September 11, killing 125 persons, was carried out by a jet
The scene of the attack was thoroughly disturbed on the following day by the
immediate launch of new construction work, with the result that many of the
elements necessary to reconstruct what had happened are missing. The
elements that do remain, however, converge in a single hypothesis that it is
not possible to prove with certainty.
An air traffic controller from Washington has testified seeing on radar an
object flying at about 800 kilometers per hour, moving initially toward the
White House, then turning sharply toward the Pentagon, where it seemed to
crash. The air traffic controller has testified that the characteristics of
the flight were such that it could only have been a military projectile.
Several hundred witnesses have claimed that they head "a shrill noise like
the noise of a fighter-bomber", but nothing like the noise of a civilian
Eye-witnesses have said that they saw "something like a cruise missile with
wings" or a small flying object "like a plane carrying eight or twelve
The flying object penetrated the building without causing major damage to
the façade. It crossed several of the building rings of the Pentagon,
creating in each wall it pierced a progressively bigger hole. The final
hole, perfectly circular, measured about one meter eighty in diameter. When
traversing the first ring of the Pentagon, the object set off a fire, as
gigantic as it was sudden. Huge flames burst from the building licking the
façades, then they shrank back just as fast, leaving behind a cloud of black
soot. The fire spread through a part of the first ring and along two
perpendicular corridors. It was so sudden that the fire protection system
could not react.
All these testimonies and observations correspond to the effects of an AGM
[air to ground missile]-86C of the third (most recent) generation of CALCM
[conventional air launched cruise missile -- see picture at:
equipped with depleted uranium warheads and guided by GPS [global
positioning system]. This type of missile, seen from the side, would easily
remind one of a small civilian airplane, but it is not a plane. It produces
a shrill whistle comparable to that of a fighter-bomber, can be guided with
enough accuracy to be directed through a window, can pierce the most
resistant armor and can set off a fire -independent of its piercing effect -
that will generate heat of over 2,000° Celsius.
This type of missile was developed jointly by the Navy and the Air Force and
is fired from a plane. The missile used against the Pentagon destroyed the
part of the building where the new Supreme Naval Command Center was being
installed. Following the attack, the Navy Chief of Staff, Admiral Vernon
Walters, failed to show up in the crisis room of the National Military Joint
Intelligence Center when the other members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
reported there. Instead, he abruptly left the Pentagon.
Who, then, could have fired such a missile on the Pentagon?
The answer was given by the off-the-record revelations of Ari Fleischer, the
White House spokesman, and by Karl Rove, senior advisor to the president, to
journalists from the New York Times and the Washington Post. Eighteen days
later, these men discounted the veracity of the information they had given
the journalists, claiming that they had been speaking under the stress of
According to those close to George W. Bush, in the course of the morning,
the Secret Service received a telephone call from those behind the attacks,
apparently in order to make demands. To give credence to their demands, the
masterminds revealed the secret codes giving access to the secure telephone
lines available to the president for secure communication with the various
intelligence agencies and services as well as for access to the nuclear
arsenal. In fact, only a very few persons with the highest security
clearances, in the top ranks of the government, could have had these codes.
It follows that at least one of the persons behind the attacks of September
11 has a top government post, either civilian or military.
To give credence to the fable of Islamic terrorists, the United States
authorities invented kamikazes. Although it would have been possible for a
well organized group of persons to bring fire arms into commercial air
liners, the kamikazes apparently used cardboard cutters as their only
weapons. They are said to have learned to pilot Boeing 757s and 767s in the
space of several hours of simulator training, becoming better pilots than
professionals. This mastery allowed them to carry out complex in-flight
The Justice Department has never explained how it established the list of
the kamikazes. The airline companies have furnished the exact number of
passengers in each plane, and the passenger lists, incomplete, do not
mention the persons who boarded at the last minute. In checking the these
lists, one notices that names of the kamikazes are not on them and that only
three passengers are not identified for flight 11 and only two for flight
93. It is thus impossible that 19 kamikazes boarded. Further, several of
those listed as kamikazes have turned up, alive. The FBI nonetheless
maintains that the high-jackers have all been definitively identified and
that complementary information such as birth dates makes it improbable that
they could be confused with persons of the same name. For those who might
doubt this, the FBI has a ridiculous proof: whereas the planes burned and
the twin towers collapsed, the passport of Mohammed Atta was miraculously
found intact on the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center.
The existence of high-jackers, whether these or others, is confirmed by
telephone calls made by several passengers to members of their families.
Unfortunately, these conversations are known to us only by hearsay and have
not been published, even in the case of those that were recorded. Thus, it
has been impossible to verify that they were actually made from a particular
cell phone of from a telephone on board. Here, too, we are asked to take the
FBI at its word.
Further, it was not indispensable to have high-jackers to carry out the
attacks. The Global Hawk technology, developed by the Air Force, makes it
possible to take control of a commercial airliner regardless of the
intentions of its pilot(s) and to direct it by remote control.
There remains the case of Osama bin Laden. If it is generally admitted that
he was a CIA agent or collaborator during the war against the Soviet Union
in Afghanistan, the current version of events claims that he turned coat and
became public enemy number one of the United States. This story does not
bear up under scrutiny either. The French daily le Figaro revealed that last
July, Osmam bn Laden was a patient at the American hospital in Dubai, where
he was visited by the head of CIA regional office.
CBS television in the United States has revealed that, on September 10,
Osama bin Laden was undergoing dialysis at the Rawalpindi military hospital,
under the protection of the Pakistani army. And the renowned French
journalist Michel Peyrard, who was a prisoner of the Taliban, has recounted
how, last November, Osama bn Laden was living openly in Jalalabad while the
United States was bombing other regions of the country. It is difficult to
believe that the greatest army in the world, come to Afghanistan to arrest
him, was unable to do so, while the mollah Omar was able to escape from
United States military force on a moped.
In view of the elements that I have just presented, it appears that the
attacks of September can not be attributed to foreign terrorists from the
Arab-Muslim world - even if some of those involved might have been Muslim -
but to United States terrorists.
The day after the attacks of September 11, United Nations Security Council
Resolution 1368 acknowledged "the inherent right of individual or collective
self-defense in accordance with the Charter", calling on "all States to work
together urgently to bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and
sponsors of these terrorist attacks and stresses that those responsible for
aiding, supporting or harboring the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of
these acts will be held accountable".
If one wishes to heed the call of the Security Council, to enforce
Resolution 1368 and to punish those who really are guilty, the only way to
accurately identify the guilty parties is to set up a commission of inquiry
whose independence and objectivity are guaranteed by the United Nations.
This would also be the only way to preserve international peace. In the
meantime, Your Highness, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, the foreign
military interventions of the United States of America are devoid of any
basis in international law, whether it be their recent intervention in
Afghanistan or their announced interventions in Iran, Iraq and in numerous
