9/11 and Operation Gladio

Editorial Comment:

The following was first published on Russia Today’s “Truthseeker” on September 08, 2012. What is vitally important in the Truthseeker exposé is that it was the first media initiative that revealed the NATO Gladio and Al Qaeda connection. As the “global war on terror” engulfed Africa and the Middle East, the fact that the US created Al Qaeda gradually became known and accepted.

That the USA is using Gladio to terrorize not only the world, but its own population, has yet to be grasped and understood by the majority.

The most recent examples of Gladio in action within the US were the Boston marathon bombings.

Sibel Edmonds has provided a detailed account of the transition of Gladio to Gladio B, explaining how Al Qaeda, the imperial proxy army, has become the Gladio B terror legion that spans the entire globe.

Below the Truthseeker’s presentation, I have published new research by Elizabeth Woodworth that exposes the cyberwar against the general public via search engine manipulation to obstruct research on 911 Truth.

Additional Gladio links are provided at the end and you will find more resources inside them.

It is time that the illusion of democracy end and the realization that we, in imperialist nations, now  live under the shadow of a secret state, be fully comprehended.

Until we understand this we can never mobilize to devise effective revolutionary strategies to overthrow that state.

A final note:

Without apology or explanation, Russia Today deleted the entire archive of Daniel Bushell’s work, including his Truthseeker videos.

9/11 and Operation Gladio

‘Bigger than Watergate’: US ‘regular’ meetings with Al-Qaeda’s leader; documented White House ‘false flag terrorism’ moving people ‘like sheep’; the father of Twin Towers victim tell us why he backs this month’s 9/11 campaign on Times Square and around the world; & the protests calendar for September.

Seek truth from facts with Bob McIlvane, whose son Bobby was killed in the lobby of the North Tower; NATO’s Secret Armies author Dr. Daniele Ganser; Elizabeth Woodworth of Consensus911; Journal of 9/11 Studies co-editor Dr. Graeme MacQueen; Dr. Kevin Barrett author of Questioning the War of Terror, civil engineer Jon Cole of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth; and Rachel Maddow of The Rachel Maddow Show.

RT: My name’s Daniel Bushell. Top officials say the White House is behind the terrorism of their population, and new evidence from 9/11. Coming up.


  • Whistleblowers leak US talks with the head of Al-Qaeda.
  • World Trade 7 is shown on Times Square.
  • And the father of a Twin Towers victim tells us about being attacked by mainstream media.

RT: Decades of Terror against their own population, blamed on “extremists”, has actually been funded and planned by the White House, top-level officials in the government and the CIA confirmed. The campaign known as Gladio is called by former CIA head Bill Colby a “major operation.”

In sworn testimony one of the conspirators confessed: “You have to attack civilians, the people, women, children far removed from any political game, so authorities can bring in a state of emergency.”

Dr. Daniele Ganser, author of NATO’s Secret Armies, thanks very much indeed for coming on. So mainstream media don’t report this but it is now on the record and officially documented that decades of terror attacks against their own population are in fact organized by the CIA and the White House.

Dr. Daniele Ganser, author NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation Northwoods with evidence of Operation Gladio, we have the data now available. And then the people understand that this exists, but they still have a psychological moment when they have a hard time to believe that it still goes on, because it’s bad news. It basically means that terrorism can be manipulated in order to move people around like sheep really. And if you’re told you’re sheep, you’ve been moved by false flag terrorism, this is really something you don’t want to hear.

RT: We keep finding this term ‘strategy of tension’ by the White House. What does it mean?

Ganser: Strategy of tension actually means that you blow up a bomb and say your enemy did it. What we do have is evidence that this strategy of tension goes on it’s not over.


RT: “Bigger than Watergate,” the FBI’s Dennis Saccher called US Shielding of Al-Qaeda leaders up to 2001, and Veterans Today reports it is still ongoing.

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds has exposed the “innumerable regular meetings” between US representatives, and bin Laden’s deputy, now head of Al-Qaeda Ayman Al-Zawahiri, leading up to September 2001.

July 2001: FBI agents closing in on the 9/11 plotters were thrown off the case and threatened with prosecution.

Then, when officers arrested Mohammed Khalifa, directly linked to America’s most wanted terrorist Ramzi Yousef, the Secretary of State himself intervened, had Khalifa immediately deported to Saudi and released.

Dr. Kevin Barrett is the author of Questioning the War on Terror, great to speak to you. We actually have leaders admitting, these terrorists are just tools.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, author of Questioning the War on Terror: And that’s what Al-Qaeda is. It’s a cat’s paw for Western intelligence agencies. And we heard this from the Arab world’s leading political commentator Mohamed Heikal, who told us immediately after 9/11 that this official story of 9/11 is ridiculous. He said when he was at the highest levels of government in Europe he was the one who was in charge of essentially infiltrating and virtually running so-called Al-Qaeda. He said Al-Qaeda is full of people from Saudi intelligence, from US intelligence, Israeli intelligence and of course Egyptian intelligence and it couldn’t do anything on its own.

British scholar Nafeez Ahmed, who’s one of the world’s leading scholars of terrorism, talks about an incident that happened in Turkey – I believe it was a little bit before 9/11. A supposed senior Al-Qaeda commander was arrested in Turkey, and the guards of the prison who were Muslims noticed that he wasn’t praying, he was asking for pork and they said “I thought you were a radical Muslim” and he kind of laughed and said, “No, this is all just a strategy of tension.”

RT: This 9/11, the world’s top physicists, pilots, engineers join victims’ families to sidestep the mainstream media wall of silence.

Huge billboards on Times Square and across the states confront the fact most Americans don’t know a third giant tower on 9/11 wasn’t even hit by a plane, yet somehow collapsed in free fall.

At 5:20pm, World Trade 7 suddenly, neatly and symmetrically just folded like a pancake.

ReThink911 video:

Roland Angle P.E., civil-structural engineer: This is high-school physics.

Jonathan Smolens P.E., structural engineer: A building cannot do a free fall with 40,000 tons of structural steel, and its structural system, without it being blown up.

RT: The government version is that office fires made all 84 steel columns break at the same time, but there are other versions.

Jon Cole’s among thousands of leading independent experts with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, great to speak to you. So who did it?

Jon Cole, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth: Who didn’t do it is the 19 hijackers who allegedly flew the planes. It is impossible to melt that steel by the office fires, the jet fuel, or the collapse itself. It’s a physical impossibility; it cannot be replicated experimentally. It defies the laws of physics.

If you set aside your politics, if you set aside your beliefs and religion and you use the scientific method, World Trade Center 7 is basically a classic controlled demolition when a building free falls and comes straight down into its own footprint.

It’s the only explanation that explains all the evidence: the nano-thermite, the iron microspheres, the high temperatures found out there, the free fall, the uniform acceleration of the towers, when those came down there was no impact or jolt when it hit the undamaged section below. Because there was no jolt, something blew those towers out allowing them to uniformly accelerate downward.

The only thing that makes any sense at all, from a scientific perspective, is those towers were blown up.

RT: Jon made a mockery of mainstream sites NatGeo and PopMechanics, who’ve desperately tried for instance to show 175 pounds of military nano-thermite couldn’t break the columns. Jon did it, with just one pound.

Renowned librarian and researcher Elizabeth Woodworth has come in to help form the Consensus 911 panel, confirming it uses “best practice” with the most rigorous peer review. Thanks so much for joining us, there’s this remarkably high consensus among experts that the government version can’t be right.

Elizabeth Woodworth, Consensus 911: We have some of the top experts in the field who’ve published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and yes, these scientific journals exist, like the Heritage Study, but they’re never covered in the media.

If people knew about the research, they would find it compelling. Dr. Griffin has said he’s never heard of anybody who saw the evidence, became converted to this point of view and then changed back.

RT: The panel has made the government already change its story, and admit Skyscraper 7’s free fall.

Woodworth: That’s right, David Chandler is an extraordinary model maker, Chandler is on the panel and he devised a model to prove the top floors fell with no resistance. There’s only one way that that can happen and that is that all 84 columns were severed at the same moment.

RT: Dr. Graeme McQueen accessed the New York Fire Department records from that day, thanks very much for joining us. Never broadcast by mainstream media, but more than 100 witnesses have even reported the explosives bringing down the Twin Towers.

Dr. Graeme McQueen, Eyewitness Research: Here was these roughly 10,000 pages of extremely rich eyewitness material and I found that there were 118 people who clearly perceived explosions.

You know, we have firefighters who are used to fighting high-rise fires, who are used to encountering smoke explosions and boilers, and yet they use the words like bombs. They don’t identify with the things we would expect.

RT: Bob McIlvane has wanted answers why the post-mortem of his son Bobby found his fatal injuries in the North Tower consistent not with fireballs, but explosives.

Yet mainstream host Rachel Maddow here recently sneered he’s not only a conspiracy theorist for asking questions, but also attempted to connect him to violence and Al-Qaeda.

Rachel Maddow, The Rachel Maddow Show: All of these nefarious conspiracies about government plots, to kill, and conspire, and cover up the real truth, I mean this stuff is as ridiculous as it has ever been but it is as ridiculous as it is dangerous.

RT: Bobby’s father joins us…How do you feel first losing your son, now being portrayed as the bad guy?

Bob McIlvane, son died on 9/11: My son died, he died from an explosion. I can prove that beyond reasonable doubt. If I was in a courtroom a jury cannot not accept that as proof. So that’s where we have our problem – when I say, “Well, this is an inside job, my son died from an inside job, from someone putting bombs detonations.”

I would make her sit in this room and go through what I just went with you, and then I would say “You as****e now you tell me I’m a conspiracy theorist.”

It just shows you how awful our media is. I don’t want to call her a w***e but she’s a media w***e. She makes over a million dollars and they tell her what to say.

One newspaper reporter from the Philadelphia area was very upfront with me. She said, “You know Bob, as a reporter I am the problem because we will lose our jobs. If I take that, just that little bit you just said, to the editor, he will crush it. So I’m telling you right now I can’t put your story out there.”

The media owners would not allow it.

The press would not cover it, just that, because it will put a little doubt in people’s minds.

RT: Who do you blame for all this?

McIlvane: The people of the Unites States are just as much to blame because they just want to believe that we are good people, we are an exceptional country, but this is what governments do, it’s very Machiavellian. Now we have an endless War on Terror.

I know what these people in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan are going though, because they’re all losing children. And that’s what it’s all about – everybody’s losing family members. It’s pure hell.

So that’s it Daniel.

RT: Tomorrow Congress votes to bomb Syria, the latest war of the post-9/11 era.

The US would now officially be Al-Qaeda’s air force, notes former congressman Kucinich.

But America’s had enough. Nine in ten oppose this invasion, the most unpopular in history.

Regarding 9/11, a massive 84 percent now say the government’s lying.

We now have the precedents documented that the government’s prepared to commit supreme crimes against its population.

Exactly what happened on 9/11 can be argued by both so-called “conspiracy theorists” and the authorities. What’s beyond dispute is on the 11th of September, the world will join to mourn the almost 3,000 innocent people who lost their lives.

This is The Truthseeker.

Search Engine Manipulation. Google and YouTube Suppress Controversial 9/11 Truth?

By Elizabeth Woodworth


With polls consistently showing that approximately 50% of Canadians and Americans doubt the official story of 9/11, the feat of keeping the lid on a public debate for over 12 years has been nothing short of miraculous.

This article presents a simple case study showing that this miracle is being performed with the assistance of Google and YouTube search engine interference

On September 8, 2013, the popular Russia Today “Truthseeker” program, with over a million subscribers on YouTube,[1] published a 13-minute newscast entitled “The Truthseeker: 9/11 and Operation Gladio (E23).”

Below the video frame ran the caption:

Bigger than Watergate’: US ‘regular’ meetings with Al-Qaeda’s leader; documented White House ‘false flag terrorism’ moving people ‘like sheep’; the father of Twin Towers victim tell us why he backs this month’s 9/11 campaign on Times Square and around the world; & the protests calendar for September.

This paragraph was followed by a list of interviewees, including four people representing three scholarly research organizations:  Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,[2] the 9/11 Consensus Panel,[3] and The Journal of 9/11 Studies.[4]

The “Truthseeker” video immediately started to gain popularity on YouTube, reaching 131,000 views in the first three days.[5](The history of the viewing statistics may be seen by clicking on the little graphic symbol under the video frame, and to the right)

Truthseeker posted its program to YouTube on Sept. 8.  Russia Today tweeted the YouTube link to its 546,000 followers and to the interviewer, Daniel Bushell, that day:

A MOXNEWS copy of the same newscast was also posted September 8 under the title “Russia Today News Declares 9/11 An Inside Job False Flag Attack!” which in turn started to escalate, with over 80,000 views in the first few days.[6]

Other uploads of the program also appeared, with less traffic, bringing the early viewing total to over a quarter of a million people.

What Happened Next?

In both the RT and MOXNEWS cases, the viewer statistics on YouTube suddenly flat-lined on the morning of September 11 — like a heart monitor when a patient dies.

The YouTube search engine had suddenly failed to locate these videos.

Oddly, although the RT video may still be viewed on YouTube through its direct link (if known) from the Google URL box,[7] it cannot be accessed on YouTube by its title, or by portions of its title, or by searching “Truthseeker.”

The MOXNET version was also decoupled from the YouTube search engine for a period of time after September 11, but has since been restored to normal indexing.


How Were the Search Engine Failures Detected and Verified?

Investigations carried out independently by a US engineering colleague and myself revealed the following:

I. YouTube Search Results and Rankings:

·        Searching the exact title of the original “Truthseeker” posting (“9/11 and Operation Gladio”) does not yield the original RT post. It does yield other posts with far fewer viewings, but the original, which as we have seen still exists as a URL, is evidently no longer in the YouTube index.


Its viewings have slowly risen over several weeks from 131,000 to 136,000 through the early news reports — but with by far the most views of all the uploads, it should appear at the top of the list.

  • Searching YouTube for the URL of the original escalating RT version produces no result either, although as we have seen, the URL is still a functioning direct link. (Experiment:  Take any URL from YouTube or Google, plug it into the search box and watch it come up on top of the list — because there is only one.)
  • Searching YouTube for the program’s name, “Truthseeker,” displays titles from Episodes 1-22, and also Episode 24, but it fails to show Episode 23, “9/11 and Operation Gladio” in 15 pages of search results.
  • Searching for the MOXNET post on the third day of its existence (September 11) produced a similar result. It should have appeared second from the top with its 80,000 views, but it was difficult to get it to appear at all — except through its direct link (if one had saved this earlier).
  • Oddly enough, the MOXNET post is once again normally accessible on YouTube (as it was September 8-11) through a search of either:  a) its full title, or b) its first few words.

II. Google Search Results and Rankings:

An exploration of the Google Web and Google Video search results revealed the following about access to the RT “Truthseeker” Episode 23:

·        Google Web Rankings:  On a search of “9/11 and Operation Gladio,” Google Web first brought up several news items, followed by an array of low-volume YouTube uploads that did not include the popular original RT version.
·        Google Video Rankings:  On the same search, “9/11 and Operation Gladio,” Google Video first listed the “Truthseeker” website page from which the video may also be watched and downloaded (as discussed below). This was followed by a half dozen uploads from other sources, mostly showing 50-200 video views. The original RT video that is still available by direct link and now records 136,000 views, did not show up at all — yet it should have been on top.
·        On both Google Web and Google Video, searching the original RT URL failed to bring up the early version of the program that had started to go viral[8] — although its direct link still exists and shows up on several early September news websites.

III. The Truthseeker’s Own Website:

The “Truthseeker” produces a new show every two weeks.  As of this writing, the “Truthseeker” home page shows Episode 24, dated September 22, right at the top, followed by Episodes 22, 21, 20, and 19.

Our case-study Episode 23, dated September 8, was displayed at the top of the home page from September 8-11, before it disappeared.

It was then located under a different date — August 1, 2012 — buried on a back page with earlier episodes from over a year ago.

This may have been a simple mistake on the part of a large investigative news network that is attracting personnel and audiences away from Western networks, or it may be the result of hacking or political pressure. [It should be noted that when a September 8 2013 posting is given a new date namely August 1, 2012, it no longer appears on Google News in the days leading up to and following September 11, 2013, the date of commemoration of the 9/11 attacks. This redating of the September 8 posting also affects its ranking in the search engines, GR Ed.].

The bottom line is that at least with regard to the Google and YouTube (which is owned by Google) search engines, something highly unusual has gone awry.[9]

Failure of Email Transmissions Describing the Above Investigation

Perhaps the most disturbing element of this case study is that for more than two weeks after September 11, 2013, it was impossible for some people to transmit by email the link to the original YouTube Episode 23 that had started to go viral.[10]

An email containing this link would at first appear to have transmitted normally, for it would show up in the sender’s Sent Mail. But it would not be received by the addressees — including the sender, if copied to self.

To my knowledge, at least six people, including three IT professionals, experienced the failure of email transmissions containing this particular link.

Of these IT professionals, one concluded, “There is no benign explanation for this.”

Impact and Significance

1. Impact: How popular videos behave statistically 

When videos start to become popular on YouTube, the statistics curve usually continues to rise over time.

Some show an initial burst of interest, with the curve rising quite steeply, then settling into an upward sloping line over time. This may be seen with the 2011 “Ultimate Dog Tease” (145 million).[11]

Others have a slower start, then catch on and build steadily, as did the 2012 “Psy-Gangnam Style” video, the first to be viewed over a billion times.[12]

The same slow-start pattern was seen with the 2007 video, “9/11 Clues EVERYONE MISSED.”[13]

Now compare these graphs with the two flat-line interruptions in the case-study videos whose progress was truncated by search engine failure.[14]

The point is that if a particular video is catching on, and people can see the excitement and enthusiasm for it right there in the viewer stats, they are apt to jump aboard and watch it.  They are far less likely to watch a video with 50-200 views that has been rated “ho hum” by the viewing public.

Those who covertly study the impact of “inconvenient” political broadcasts, and who take note and interfere with them, understand these things.

2. The significance of this interference:

The suppression of free political communication in our society has grave consequences for several reasons:

  • It is clear that that there is not just spying and data collection going on.  There is also electronic interference in our media, search engines, and mailboxes that is suppressing freedom of expression at various levels;
  • Media and search engine suppression can be held up for public view, while evidence of individual email tampering, probably carried out by covert state agencies, is frightening.  People are naturally reluctant to report it or write about it — for there is no one to report it to;
  • In the case of 9/11, which has torn the fabric of humanity down the middle — between Muslims and Christians, and between East and West — it is essential that the evidence backing this event be absolutely correct and open to question at all times;
  • The fact that the lid on 9/11 has been nailed down so firmly for so long creates great suspicion that this case study points to possible obstruction of free information transfer by government agencies recently identified through NSA whistleblowers Edward Snowden, William Binnie, Thomas Drake, and others.

This essay is offered to all citizens who believe the government should be investigated when state crimes against democracy are suspected.

It is further offered to all who pay taxes for government care, protection, and the guarantee of constitutional freedoms — and in particular to citizens who may have encountered chilling indications of covert state interference in their lives.
