THE ENEMY IS INSIDE THE GATES
by Donn de Grand Pré
A dedicated group of experienced civilian and military pilots, including combat fighter pilots and commercial
airline captains, just finished a marathon 72 hours of non-stop briefings and debate over the current crisis evolving from
the use of commercial aircraft as cruise missiles against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 11 September.
The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly executed military operation against the United States, requiring
the utmost professional military skill in command, communications and control. It was flawless in timing, in the choice of
selected aircraft to be used as guided missiles, and in the coordinated delivery of those missiles to their pre-selected targets.
As a tactical military exercise against two significant targets (world financial center and the citadel of world strategic
military planning), the attack, from a psychological impact on the American public, equaled the Japanese "surprise" attack
on Pearl Harbor 7 Dec 1941.
The over-riding question: If we are at war, who is the enemy?
The group determined that the enemy is within the gates, that he has infiltrated into the highest policy-making positions
at the Federal level, and has absolute control, not only of the purse strings, but of the troop build-up and deployment of
our military forces, including active, reserve and National Guard units.
PRELUDE TO PANIC
The 9-11 activity and horrific destruction of US property and lives was intentionally meant to trigger a psychological
and patriotic reaction on the part of the US citizens, which is paving the way for "combined UN activity" (using the fig leaf
of NATO) for striking key targets in both the Middle East/ South Asia and the Balkans. The goal continues to be ultimate destruction
of all national sovereignty and establishment of a global government.
The trigger for the 9-11 activity was the imminent and unstoppable world-wide financial collapse, which can only be prevented
(temporarily) by a major war, perhaps to become known as WW III. To bring it off (one more time), martial law will probably
be imposed in the United States.
In each of the major wars of the 20th century, the financial manipulators (located in the City of London and New York City)
had placed the US (and much of the Western world) in a monetary expansion mode, followed by an ever-tightening vice of a gigantic
credit squeeze. We now have two ongoing and tightly controlled simultaneous events (emanating from the two symbolic targets
- Alan Greenspan, Fed chairman, promising to flood the market with up to $200 billion in FRNs and to further lower interest
rates, thus bringing about hyperinflation and dollar devaluation. Much of these multi billions in largesse will be dumped
into the coffers of Wall Street, Defense, bankrupt airlines, insurance companies and into the willing arms of debt-ridden
third-world countries in the form of debt repudiation (forgiveness). Call it bribery, in order to get these often reluctant
nations to join our coalition of "freedom fighters" in "the war against terrorism".
- Paul Wolfowitz, deputy Defense secretary, promised that the US will launch "sustained military strikes against those behind
the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington". He said that the "military retaliation would continue until the roots of
terrorism are destroyed."
This bit of saber rattling was seconded by select NATO allies (especially Britain), and by our chief ally in the Middle
East, the Butcher of Beirut, Ariel Sharon, while Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld, with the blessings of Pres. Bush II, is
activating thousands of national guard and reservists, not only to guard the vulnerable airports, but to do fly-overs of our
Nation's capital in F16s from the North Dakota Air Guard. Other National Guard units are being jockeyed into potential combat
"hot spots" throughout the Middle East/South Asia and the Balkans.
WHO IS THE ENEMY?
Following is a summary of the near-unanimous views of the assembled military and civilian pilots concerning certain critical
factors relating to the WTC/Pentagon hit of 9-11:
Troubling questions arose about the alleged pilot-hijackers of the four aircraft, who were supposedly trained on Cessna
aircraft over the past year at fields in Florida and Oklahoma. One General officer remarked, "I seriously question whether
these novices could have located a target dead-on 200 miles removed from takeoff point...-- much less controlled the flight
and mastered the intricacies of IFR (instrument flight rules) -- and all accomplished in 45 minutes."
The extremely skillful maneuvering of the three aircraft at near mach speeds, each unerringly hitting their targets, was
superb. As one Air Force officer -- a veteran of over 100 sorties over North Vietnam -- explained, "Those birds (commercial
airliners) either had a crack fighter pilot in the left seat, or they were being maneuvered by remote control."
Another pilot warned that "we had better consider whether electro-magnetic pulse or radio frequency weapons were used from
a command and control platform hovering over the Eastern Seaboard... I'm talkin' AWACS."
Another comment: "If there was an AWACS on station over the targeted area, did it have a Global Hawk capability? I mean,
could it convert the commercial jets to robotic flying missiles?
A hotly debated question: Who would be in command of such an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS)? Were they Chinese
-- Russians -- Saudis -- Israelis -- NATO ? All of these countries possess AWACS-type aircraft. All (except the Saudis) have
the capability to utilize electro-magnetic pulsing (EMP) to knock out on-board flight controls and communications of targeted
aircraft, and then, to fly them by remote control.
One of the Air Force officers explained that we had already flown a robot plane the size of a Boeing 737 across the Pacific
to Australia -- unmanned -- from Edwards AF13 in California to a successful landing on an Aussie base in South Australia.
It flies along a pre-programmed flight path, but is "monitored" (controlled remotely) by a pilot from an outside station.
He explained that the London Economist (20 Sep 2001) published comments from the former CEO of British Airways, Robert
Ayling, who stated that an aircraft could be commandeered from the ground or air and controlled remotely in the event of a
COMMERCIAL JETS AS GUIDED MISSILES
An AP story, dateline Brussels - 7 Oct 01 -- "At Washington's request, NATO will soon deploy surveillance aircraft for
anti-terrorist operations in the United States in response to the attacks on New York and Washington, NATO officials said
Sunday, an unprecedented use of foreign military forces to defend the U.S. homeland."
The assembled group of pilots debated why we would ask for foreign forces to fly AWACS over our sovereign territory when
we have a fleet of 33 of them, of which 28 are stationed in Oklahoma. The debate also centered on whether such NATO surveillance
aircraft were already here prior to 11 September.
Could one of them have commandeered the four airliners?
There seems to be wide discrepancies between what the Federal government is proclaiming -- and their media moguls reporting
-- as opposed to the calm and reasoned and rational views of those men who fly the planes and defend the nation against all
enemies, foreign and domestic.
This writer has been a general aviation pilot since 1946. I have flown a variety of single engine prop aircraft since,
and installed an FAA-approved airstrip here on my farm in 1980. Two local pilots periodically joined me for short hops; one,
a Madison County lawyer, a graduate of the Air Force Academy, who flew for the Air Force before coming home to practice law.
The other, Kent Hill, who lives with his wife, Carol, on a farm close to mine, is an American Airlines captain assigned
to the European route. He was a lifelong friend of "Chic" Burlingame, They were graduates of the Naval Academy and flew F-4
Phantoms in Vietnam. Both left the Navy 28 years ago and joined American Airlines. Both planned to retire in 2002. Chic was
the captain of AA flight 77, a Boeing 757, which departed Washington Dulles for Los Angeles at 8: 10 am on 11 September, with
58 passengers and a crew of 6. Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon at 9:41 am.
"We were totally trained on the old type of hijack," Capt Hill said, "where you treat the hijacker cordially, punch a 4-digit
code into your transponder to alert ground control you're being hijacked, and then get him where he wants to go, set the plane
safely on the ground and let them deal with it on the ground. However, this is a totally new situation... Not one of the planes
alerted ground control that they were being hijacked." How come?
"The fact is, all the transponders were turned off on the doomed flights virtually at the same time." Look at their departure
times -- two from Logan (Boston), one from Newark, another from Dulles (Washington DC) -- all between 8 am and 8:15.
"Shortly after climb-out to flight level, their transponders are de-activated.. (they are no longer a blip on the radar
screens). This is something that really needs to be looked into. The only reason we turn them off is so they don't interfere
with ground systems when we land."
(Note: Transponders identify a particular aircraft in flight on the radar screens of FAA flight controllers located throughout
the country. Various codes are punched into the transponder, one displaying, "I am being hijacked.")
Although there is much talk among the various flight crews, Hill says they are not privy to any of the investigations into
the events of 11 September. "We're in the dark -- very much so ... They're playing it pretty tight to the vest."
He is convinced none of the pilots had control of their aircraft when they were flown into the World Trade Center and the
Pentagon. The question then becomes, who was really in control?
"Even if I had a gun at my head, I'd never fly a plane into a building. I'd try to put it in anywhere -- a field or a river
--and I'd be searing the hell out of them (the hijackers) by flying upside down first," Hill said.
In fact, the pilot has the best weapon in his hand when threatened with imminent death by a hijacker, namely, the airplane.
Another airline pilot stated. "On hearing a major scuffle in the cabin, the pilot should have inverted the aircraft and
the hijackers end up with broken necks."
That none of the four pilots executed such a maneuver points toward the fact that none of them had control of their aircraft,
but had been overridden by an outside force, which was flying them by remote control.
As an old and not so bold pilot, I became more convinced that the four commercial jets were choreographed by a "conductor"
from a central source, namely an airborne warning and control system (AWACS). They have the electronic capability to engage
several aircraft simultaneously, knock out their on-board flight controls by EMP (electro-magnetic pulsing) and assume command
and remote control of these targeted aircraft.
As we consider all the options -- and enemies -- who performed this act of war, whether from China, Russia, Israel, an
Islamic country, or from NATO, we must also consider that the enemy may be within the gates.
If so, then we are dealing with high treason.
IS THERE A CHINA - ISRAEL CONNECTION?
Under a heading "High-powered Microwave weapons' (Regnery Pub 1999) reported: ', the authors of Red Dragon Rising,
High-powered microwave weapons (sometimes known as radio frequency weapons) which the PLA calls the 'superstars' of warfare,
represent the new armaments that may define twenty-first century warfare. These very dangerous weapons can jam electronic
equipment by emitting an extremely powerful pulse of electromagnetic energy over a wide area, or their energy can be focused
in a narrow beam for use against American satellites I or commercial airliners - Ed 1.
In that startling and factual work, the authors highlight the exceptional efforts on the part of the PLA to acquire the
latest hi-tech data from the United States, especially for the "superstars of radio frequency and electro-magnetic pulse weaponry."
In their chapter on "Targeting America", the authors refer to a bipartisan Cox-Dicks Committee given the task to investigate
"U.S. National Security and Military/Commercial concerns with the Peoples Republic of China".
They point out that the Clinton administration changed the export control regulations (Jan 1996) and that by the end of
1998 the PRC had 600 American super computers.
In 1997-98 the Congressional Joint Economic Committee held hearings on "Radio Frequency Weapons and Proliferation: Potential
Impact on the Economy". Several experts appearing before the Committee warned that these weapons pose a distinct threat to
the United States. It was revealed during the hearings that China (PLA) has had a high-powered microwave weapon program for
25 years under the direction of one of many Chinese students educated at Berkeley over the years.
The key statement was that the PLA has access to American research -- "through espionage".
Let's fast-forward to 1999 and to a New York Times Op Ed piece by A. M. Rosenthal (22 Oct 1999), in which he described
the long-secret arms deals between Israel and Red China He was the managing editor of the New York Times for 15 years prior
to that article appearing and a dedicated supporter of Israel. However, as a result of that article, he was fired.
The title of his Op Ed was "The Deadly Cargo", and the lead sets the theme:
More often now, the special cargo arrives in China from Israel -- riles from Israeli military computers, crates with the
makings of missiles and other weapons, and the men in the lab coats, the engineers and scientists who know how to put it all
And now I see the Chinese minister of defense, who is one of the ranking Tiananmen killers, visits Israel. I read obsequious
Israeli speeches praising him and his government...
The two countries talk openly about bigger arms deals in the making. I learn that the Chinese have knit together Russian
and Israeli specialties...
The Russians are converting Ilyushin planes into the framework of U.S.-type flying command posts (AWACS) and will ship
them to Israel...
In an astounding interview by Tom Valentine (24 Oct 1999) on Radio Free America with Andrew St. George the two developed
the emerging scandal of Israel's secret arms deal with Red China. They referred to the Cox Committee hearings and stated that
"unfortunately , the official Cox 'investigation' into China's capture of American technology covered up Israel's involvement."
Valentine stressed that the Reagan administration allowed the trade to escalate in the 1980s, with the help and encouragement
of such officials as Richard Perle, Stephen Bryen, Fred Ickle and Paul Wolfowitz ..."They were the kingpins of the Defense
Department in the Reagan years."
In case you missed it, they are now back as key advisers to President Bush II; in fact, the leading war hawk pressing for
our armed forces to go to war against the Muslim World is the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Paul Wolfowitz.
We are being deluged by the current crop of Israel Firsters, all shouting "It's time to declare war". and "First war of
21st Century" ( Alan Dershowitz on CNN - William Kristol, Washington Times - Leonard Piekoff, Washington Post)), and former
Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, appearing before the U.S. Congress,
QUO VADIS? (Whither Goest?)
To better grasp where we are heading (other than to the Khyber Pass), we can dip back to recent history (Vietnam, Korea,
Desert Storm, Kosovo) to get a better focus of the direction we are going, even though our commander-in-chief has yet to define
the specific enemy.
"Terrorism is like sin; everybody is agin'it."
To those of us who have actually engaged an enemy (often contrived) on the battlefield, and/or who have an-n-chaired other
wars from a vantage point, say, the E-Ring of the Pentagon, the pomposity and solemnity and the speechifying of our fearless
politicians, as well as their favorite talking heads on the idiot box, is eerily familiar. It is in fact déja vous all over
Once again, we will rely on "perpetual war for perpetual peace" to bring us out of the abyss of a major financial collapse.
We either turn out the Barbarians Inside the Gates, or we prepare for the long dark night of no return. There is no longer
a third option.
It's curtain call at the Little Theater off Times Square... Be There!

Retired Marine Colonel Attacks "Official Story" of 9/11 as ImpossibleA 24 page
report by military and civilian experts in the hands of top Pentagon Brass and The White House documenting 911 was an "inside
job." Report ignored and unreported thus far.
November 19, 2004
By Greg Szymanski
talks in military jargon, using words like cold coup and counter coup d’ tat like most of us ask for coffee and a sweet
roll in the morning.
He chooses words carefully, as if “yes, sir” or “no, sir” will pop out
at any second.
It’s obvious from his rhythm and cadence, he’s a military man. It’s obvious he’s
the type who deals in order and details, looking for the military angle with each breadth he takes.
more than 25 years since retired Marine Col. Donn de Grand Pre toed the military line, but since 911 a sense of duty and honor
or what he calls in Marine lingo “Sempre Fi” or “Always Faithful” thrust him back into public service.
It was that ill-fated black September morning in 2001 that put the Colonel back in Donn de Grand Pre’s name
and pulled him off his favorite quarter horse on his peaceful Virginia ranch. As he sat watching the jetliner crash into the
tower, it was like the morning trumpet sounded, signaling him to put on his uniform and get back to work
I saw the fireball, I knew the cold coup had begun,” said the Colonel mysteriously, explaining that this is when the
civilian hierarchy creates a movement to topple the government in order to advance a planned political agenda. “The
neo-cons involved, like Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, had been planning 911 for years. They needed something to justify their war
plans and advance the globalists’ plan to control wealth and power by essentially controlling America.
were saying, so to speak, let the games begin! I might add, though, there are those in the military, those in the Pentagon
who want to stop these bastards. Surprisingly, it’s the military who will be our last resort and only savior against
the globalists and their patsies in government, who want to essentially destroy this country as we know it in order to advance
their wealth and power.”
The picture the Colonel paints is chilling, almost unbelievable. Critics might even
say he is just another retired “military crack pot” or one of those frustrated military fiction writers focusing
on calamity, horror and death.
However, when you look in his eyes, you see a man searching for the truth. When you
look at his past, he is anything but a fiction writer, but rather a man who has spent a lifetime dealing with fact not innuendo.
So, why now? Why did he allow the events of 911 to thrust him back into “devil’s den?” He’s
already served his military time, served his country well since entering the military in 1944 as an 18-year-old radio operator.
Working his way up the military ranks, his tour of duty first took him to Burma, China and then to Korea as a commissioned
airborne-infantry officer where he was seriously injured. After two years recuperating stateside, duty called again, this
time being tagged by then Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara to enter “the dark side of the military” as chief
arms negotiator in the Middle East.
When reminded, he quickly laughs, sounding much like a corporate CEO:
were known as the super salesman in the ISA or in International Security Affairs. And over a 10-year period, we sold over
a hundred billion dollars worth of military equipment to all comers, including the so-called good ones and bad ones.”
Fast forward the time clock now to 911 and the events following, including the puppet regime installed in Afghanistan
and the ongoing war in Iraq, not to mention the swift passage of a dictatorial-fashioned Patriot Act and a level of fear placed
on the American population by our “color-coded” homeland security system.
Perhaps what is needed now more
than anything is an “inside military perspective” of what is really happening to America post 911? Perhaps the
man to help piece the puzzle together is the “Virginia Cowboy Colonel” who likes riding quarter horses just as
much as he likes delving into the dangerous world of governmental intrigue and espionage.
Fi,” that’s why I’m back,” quips the Colonel.
And when it comes to the Middle East, he knows
the turf, he knows the so-called good guys from the bad guys, even when they sometimes change the color of their hats for
political convenience. He knows the dangerous “ins and outs” behind the secret policies of big shots like Rumsfeld,
Wolfowitz and Richard Perle. He especially despises Perle, calling him a “madman” who openly rants at Washington
parties about the power of the “New World Order” and the coming of World War III.
Although his disdain
is evident for those he calls the neo-con civilian hierarchy, he still is probably on a first name basis with them, as the
games played within the halls of the shadow government go much deeper than words.
“They let you talk, let you
go on knowing that you will be dismissed as a fanatic,” explains the Colonel. “But if you get too close, too close
to exposing the real truth, all I can say is ‘watch your back.’ I still visit the Pentagon regularly, more now
since 911 took place. It’s never easy to really tell who are your friends from your enemies. But that’s a part
of military service, sorting out the wheat from the chaff.”
Once a Marine, always a Marine, but when it comes
to the “Official Story” about the 911 attacks, the Colonel and his Pentagon comrades come down on completely different
sides of the fence. At least, publicly, emphasizes the Colonel.
“I’ve personally talked with the Chairman
of the Joint Chief of Staff, General Myers, and he is total agreement, at least privately, that 911 was an inside job,”
said the Colonel. “He agrees with my assessment and the assessment of other experts who all say that the “Official
Story” is way off base. Of course, he will deny it publicly as will the other higher-ups in both the military and civilian
sectors. They will, in fact, publicly deny ever talking to me. That’s the way the game is played.
they can’t deny, if someone would just dig deep enough to push the issue, that I along with a group of civilian and
military expert-pilots presented a 24- page report to Gen. Myers after 911, detailing our theory of what really happened.
He agrees with our assessment that it was an inside job. He just won’t admit it publicly and, you see, the games continue!”
The 24-page report given to Gen. Myers was compiled by a group of distinguished commercial, civilian and military
pilots after a 72-hour marathon symposium organized by the Colonel just days after 911.
The results were shocking,
but only to those not privy to how the neo-cons and their wealthy supporters operate.
The report basically warns the
American public that the government’s official version does not hold up to scrutiny. It concludes military defense systems
were suspended and standard operating procedures ignored, allowing for the airplanes on 911 to strike their targets without
Furthermore, the report concludes that flight crews on all four passenger jets involved in 911 had no
control over their aircraft and were either remote-controlled into their targets or substituted by military drone look- a-likes.
The report ads that Flight 93, flying over Somerset County, Pa., was the only plane that should not have been shot down, but
most probably was brought down on specific orders with missiles fired from a fighter squadron called The Happy Hooligans.
“Our written report ultimately got into the hands of the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, Gen, Peter
Pace, on Jan. 23, 2002,” said the Colonel. “I then got a call on March 5 from one of the General’s horse
holders that there would be no official comment at this time.
“Now, the situation surrounding my report remains
as follows: The mainstream American media has failed to publish or broadcast any details regarding the independent inquiry.
I have solid evidence that 500 copies of the report were immediately distributed to the higher-ups, including General Myers,
Rumsfeld and the White House. Not surprisingly, I have not been officially approached regarding our findings and there has
been no official word mentioned whatsoever by any of the parties mentioned above.
“In fact, the only people
to give it any mention at all has been a very long and detailed report in the Portugal press as well as an interview that
aired earlier this year with alternative radio broadcaster, Alex Jones.
“At present, I have put 911 behind me,
as I am now able to ride my favorite quarter horse again after being hit with a heart attack which I think was the result
of stress related to the whole 911 affair. Don’t get me wrong, I have not forgotten or given up hope. I just want to
move forward and perhaps circumvent what these neo-cons have planned next. However, I don’t want to speculate as I prefer
staying on a straight forward factual course.”
It’s been said that a military man awaits retirement so
his first amendment rights can finally kick-in. And that’s exactly what the Colonel has done, writing an extensive three-volume
trilogy entitled The Barbarians Inside the Gates.
His books, on sale in limited bookstores and by mail order, essentially
document the rise of the globalist and neo-con movement that seeks to establish a “New World Order” through militarizing
and federalizing in perpetuation of a classic takeover of the United States government.
A quote from his second book,
entitled the Rattler’s Revenge released in October 2002, puts 911 into perspective in relation to the globalist movement:
“The trigger for the 911 activity was the imminent and unstoppable world wide financial collapse, which can
only be temporarily prevented by a major war, perhaps known as World War III. To pull this off, I eventually see that they
are planning to impose martial law in the United States.”
The only way to stop them, concludes the Colonel,
is for our military to react with a counter coup. In his first book, called The Serpent’s Sting, written in 2000 before
911, the Colonel talks of this counter coup brought against the neo-con movement.
“This is our only salvation
now after 911,” he warns. “I figure about 70% of the military at the Pentagon are with us on this, but it’s
hard to tell since they have placed so many minions loyal to the civilian hierarchy within the ranks. However, the signs are
all there: first the attack to create fear, then the Patriot Act to control the masses, then martial law and then the takeover.
They can be stopped, but it is not going to be easy.”
The Colonel emphasizes the neo-conservative movement is
personified by Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz.
“Wolfowitz has been in this game since 1974,”
said the Colonel. “I was still on active duty when I met him in 1974 and he was coming on strong even then, as was Richard
Perle and a couple of others.
“From watching the globalists, it obvious they had a well thought out plan of
attack on 911. However, I also know from the evidence that a lot of things post 911 haven’t gone according to schedule
and, so I think, they don’t really know what to do now.”
And if the Colonel has his way, he’d like
to stay one-step ahead, stopping the neo-conservative movement in its tracks before more innocent lives are lost at home and
“I have faith justice will prevail in the end, but it’s going to be a long, hard fight with our
salvation basically resting in the hands of the faithful fighting those barbarians already inside the gates.
Sempre Fi, Sempre Fi.”

From the March 2004 Idaho Observer:White House, national media silent on results
of independent 9/11 report
Author indicates days of neocon control of military, government, are numbered
by The Idaho Observer
Alex Jones broadcast an extremely important interview with Colonel Donn de Grand Pre (ret.) February 25, 2004. During the
interview Grand Pre disclosed that two years ago he directed a select group of experienced military and civilian pilots through
a non-stop, 72-hour symposium wherein the tragic events of 9/11 were analyzed based upon the available facts and evidence.
The group determined that the flight crews operating the four passenger liners allegedly crashing that day had no control
of their aircraft.
While the symposium and the report that resulted generated interest in the foreign press, it failed to get a rise out of
the national media.
During the interview, Grand Pre, a career military officer, international intelligence operative and author of “Barbarians
Inside the Gates,” explained that the anonymous group of pilots “were a wonderful mix of commercial, military
and civilian pilots.”
At the end of three days the decisions of the group were unanimous and Grand Pre went to work writing what turned out to
be a 24-page report.
Report to the Joint Chiefs
The report was submitted it to the Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Benjamin Meyers and found its way into the hands of the
vice-chairman of the Joint Chiefs January 23, 2002. “The General was U.S. Marine Corp General by the name Peter Pace.
I got a telephone call March 5, 2002, from one of his horse holders, who is a Colonel Air Force type. He informed me that
Gen. Peter Pace had gotten the 24 pages, that 500 copies had been made and that he and his Sec. had no comment at this time.
The colonel ended the conversation by stating, “Semper Fi” or “Always Faithful.”
Grand Pre took that as hope the military recognizes the treachery of the civilian Bush administration and, when the time
is right, will be there to do the right thing.
The Joint Chiefs reportedly sent the 500 copies of the report out to key people in the country -- including President Bush
and members of his cabinet. Grand Pre believes that for the Joint Chiefs to have made 500 copies and then send them out is
a sign that they believe the contents of the report have merit.
“So far the White House, whilst having received a copy of the report has remained silent as to its findings,”
said Grand Pre.
The mainstream American news media has been equally silent as to the contents of Grand Pre's independent inquiry about
the events of 9/11.
Correspondence between Grand Pre and General Pace went back and forth for several months. Most recently, Grand Pre received
a letter from General Pace dated November 8, 2003. Grand Pre described the letter from General Pace as “carrying on
not only about the investigation but about the three books that I have written since that time.”
About the same time the Joint Chiefs received the report, an article published in the Washington Times described that morale
at the Pentagon was extremely low. Grand Pre said that sources inside the Pentagon confirmed the low morale and added that,
“some of the troops are ready to mutiny. If it wasn't for the fact that the government, the civilian hierarchy, has
control over retirements, there would probably be blood in the streets by now.”
9/11: An administrative coup d'etat
According to Grand Pre, the events of 9/11 were really an administrative coupe d'etat perpetrated by a cast of characters
called neocons that include Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his assistant Paul Wolfowitz. The neocons “had been
planning this thing for literally years prior to September 11th,” explained Grand Pre
Grand Pre has written three books under the title “Barbarians Inside the Gates.” Book 1 was “The Serpent's
Sting,” Book 2 is “The Viper's Venom,” and Book 3, which just came out, is “The Rattler's Revenge.”
In Book 2, Grand Pre makes an important observation. “The trigger for the 9/11 activity was the imminent and unstoppable
world-wide financial collapse which can only be prevented temporarily by a major war, perhaps to become known as World War
III. To bring it off one more time, martial law will probably be imposed in the United States.”
Jones supported Grand Pre's ominous observation by stating that he has seen generals Eberhart and Franks both say war and
martial law are the next step. “They are federalizing everything, they are militarizing everything, they're engaging
in the classic takeover, are they not?” Jones asked Grand Pre.
“Yes, there are,” Grand Pre replied. “And from this, Alex, and I bring this out very clearly in book
3, the only way we can stop it is with the classic counter-coup d'etat, where the military steps in. And under the aegis of
the military itself, disengaging or disemboweling the civilian hierarchy and taking over and re-running or re-organizing the
Jones appeared skeptical of a military take-over of government and asked if some high level military brass were more allegiant
to the Council on Foreign Relations' New World Order agenda than American national sovereignty.
“I can only say several of the highest level are members now of the Council on Foreign Relations. The important thing
to consider is how many of them are sincere in their beliefs as enunciated by the CFR. I believe there are several sleepers
and I believe I know some of them personally who are three and four-star generals. They are members of the CFR but 'their
heart belongs to Jesus,' if I can use that expression because they are true Semper Fidelity people. Some of them happen to
be Marines. And I'm counting on them to do the right thing. And I bring this out in book 3,” Grand Pre explained.
Grand Pre told Jones that he is in weekly personal contact with the Joint Chiefs and other select people. He believes 70
percent of the higher ranking military, field grade officers and the first three grades of the enlisted ranks are “with
Neocon days numbered
Grand Pre believes the civilian neocons have temporarily taken over the Pentagon but that their days are numbered. Evidence
of this fact was revealed in last February when neocon “madman” Richard Perl resigned.
Grand Pre also mentioned that, since an attempt was made on his life in Baghdad, Paul Wolfowitz has been laying pretty
low and vice-President Dick Cheney, whom he describes as “a coward,” hardly ever “surfaces anymore.”
Gran Pre's books are extremely authoritative and are recommended reading for those seeking to understand current events
from the perspective a military/international intelligence insider. Barbarians Inside the Gates, Books 1, 2 and 3 are high-quality,
library-grade editions published by Grand Pre's daughter Doneva.

September 11 -
US Government accused
A Portugal-based investigative journalist has presented THE NEWS with version of the September 11th attacks that
has to date failed to attract the attention of the international press. The report, compiled by an independent inquiry into
the September 11th, World Trade Centre attack, warns the American public that the government’s official version of events
does not stand up to scrutiny.
A group of military and civilian US pilots, under the chairmanship of Colonel Donn de Grand, after deliberating non-stop
for 72 hours, has concluded that the flight crews of the four passenger airliners, involved in the September 11th tragedy,
had no control over their aircraft.
In a detailed press communiqué the inquiry stated: “The so-called terrorist attack was in fact a superbly executed
military operation carried out against the USA, requiring the utmost professional military skill in command, communications
and control. It was flawless in timing, in the choice of selected aircraft to be used as guided missiles and in the coordinated
delivery of those missiles to their pre-selected targets.”
The report seriously questions whether or not the suspect hijackers, supposedly trained on Cessna light aircraft, could
have located a target dead-on 200 miles from take off point. It further throws into doubt their ability to master the intricacies
of the instrument flight rules (IFR) in the 45 minutes from take off to the point of impact. Colonel de Grand said that it
would be impossible for novices to have taken control of the four aircraft and orchestrated such a terrible act requiring
military precision of the highest order.
A member of the inquiry team, a US Air Force officer who flew over 100 sorties during the Vietnam war, told the press conference:
“Those birds (commercial airliners) either had a crack fighter pilot in the left seat, or they were being manoeuvred
by remote control.”
In evidence given to the enquiry, Captain Kent Hill (retd.) of the US Air Force, and friend of Chic Burlingame, the pilot
of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon, stated that the US had on several occasions flown an unmanned aircraft, similar
in size to a Boeing 737, across the Pacific from Edwards Air Force base in California to South Australia. According to Hill
it had flown on a pre programmed flight path under the control of a pilot in an outside station.
Hill also quoted Bob Ayling, former British Airways boss, in an interview given to the London Economist on September 20th,
2001. Ayling admitted that it was now possible to control an aircraft in flight from either the ground or in the air. This
was confirmed by expert witnesses at the inquiry who testified that airliners could be controlled by electro-magnetic pulse
or radio frequency instrumentation from command and control platforms based either in the air or at ground level.
All members of the inquiry team agreed that even if guns were held to their heads none of them would fly a plane into a
building. Their reaction would be to ditch the plane into a river or a field, thereby safeguarding the lives of those on the
A further question raised by the inquiry was why none of the pilots concerned had alerted ground control. It stated that
all pilots are trained to punch a four-digit code into the flight control’s transponder to warn ground control crews
of a hijacking - but this did not happen.
During the press conference Captain Hill maintained that the four airliners must have been choreographed by an Airborne
Warning and Control System (AWACS). This system can engage several aircraft simultaneously by knocking out their on-board
flight controls. He said that all the evidence points to the fact that the pilots and their crews had not taken any evasive
action to resist the supposed hijackers. They had not attempted any sudden changes in flight path or nose-dive procedures
- which led him to believe that they had no control over their aircraft.
THE NEWS, in an attempt to further substantiate the potential veracity of these findings, spoke to an Algarve-based airline
pilot, who has more than 20 years of experience in flying passenger planes, to seek his views. Captain Colin McHattie, currently
flying with Cathay Pacific, agreed with the independent commission’s findings. However, he explained that while it is
possible to fly a plane from the ground, the installation of the necessary equipment is a time-consuming process, and needs
extensive planning. THE NEWS will publish a full interview with Captain McHattie in next week’s edition. (>more info)
The FBI also came in for criticism for the various pieces of contradictory evidence it has published regarding the suspects.
Questions are now being asked as to how incorrect information was given out regarding the ID cards of the suspects, and the
seat numbers they supposedly occupied after boarding the flights.
None of the suspects named by the FBI appeared on any of the official passenger lists. A further point was how the FBI
had managed to retrieve the passport of one of the suspects amid the molten and twisted remains of thousands of tons of steel
and rubble brought about by the Twin Towers collapse.
Dr. Paul Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury, and presently Senior Research Fellow at Stamford University,
has lent his support to the independent inquiry findings. He also claims that Osama Bin Laden was not responsible for September
11th. The doctor has challenged President Bush to make public the so-called “irrefutable evidence” incriminating
Colonel Donn de Grand said that if President Bush is lying it would not be the first time that the American people had
been mislead by its government. He cited the recently published official government archives describing President Roosevelt’s
duplicity in deceiving Americans about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, which triggered the US entry into WWll.
He also highlighted the role of the country’s government in misleading its citizens in respect of the Bay of Pigs
invasion in Cuba, and the events that brought about the Spanish American war in the late 19th, century. “Whilst considering
who committed this act of war on September 11th,” he said, “albeit Russia, China, an Islamic country or NATO,
we must also consider that the enemy may well be within the gates.
“Not for the first time the American public might be being mislead, by those with ulterior motives, into lending
its support to a war, this time against Iraq, that has no bearing whatsoever on the interests of the people of the USA.”
So far the mainstream American news media has failed to publish or broadcast any details regarding the independent inquiry.
Similarly, the White House, whilst having received a copy of the report, has remained silent on its findings.
