It’s always a pleasure to receive a positive comment from a reader about your work. When the comment is a story itself that further illuminates your article in a whole new way, then that is something special. And when that reader happens to be an author, 9/11 patriot, and someone who was in the Pentagon on that day, noted by David Ray Griffin in his book, The New Pearl Harbor Revisited, you take pause to say thank you.
First, here is Griffin commenting about one of Barbara Honegger’s observations on what happened in the Pentagon on 9/11, from page 104, paragraph two of his book . . .
“First, the day before 9/11, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld stated at a press conference that the Pentagon was missing $2.3 trillion dollars. Second, one of the most damaged areas was the Army’s financial management/audit area. This combination of facts had led Barbara Honegger to ask: ‘Were the auditors who could “‘follow the money,”’ and the computers whose data could help them do it, intentionally targeted?
“According to Honegger, she discussed this issue with Michael Nielsen, the aforementioned civilian auditor for the Army—who in fact was working in the Operations Office of the Army’s Financial Brand and probably survived only because he had gone back to his own (temporary) office shortly before the attack, which killed most of the people in the Operations Office. When she asked Nielson whether he believed that the Operations Office might have been targeted because of the missing money, he replied in the affirmative, according to Honegger, adding that the records then were, in fact, destroyed. In any case, this hypothesis is one that should be considered if and when a true investigation takes place.”
This is among several stunning insights that Honegger provided as a witness of that tragic day’s events inside the Pentagon.
Here is Ms. Honegger’s email to me on another crucial subject, published with her permission . . .
Re the close of your outstanding A Decade of Pain,
Mr. Bush, You were a crook from day one, when you and yours bought the Supreme Court and bought Judge Scalia, who handed you victory over a recalcitrant Al Gore, who should have had every vote in the state of Florida recounted and come out with the five-figure win that three newspapers in their subsequent recount printed clear as day.
It’s vital to realize that the three-newspaper consortium’s recount of the Florida ballots was slated [to] come out just before 9/11, and what that means. The hard copy Newsweek that arrived in subscribers’ mailboxes on Sept. 11 had a sweating and worried Bush on the cover in anticipation of the about-to-be-released proof that he was the loser in Florida and thus the election and that Gore should be taking over 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in the immediate future.
Given Bush and Cheney rigged and stole the election in Florida, and thus the country, to begin with, they had to have a back up plan in case proof of the theft came out or the results were brought into serious question after Bush took office – i.e. 9/11, which Bush-Cheney clearly engineered, was that ‘back up plan.’ 9/11 immediately squelched – ‘embargoed’ -- release of the newspaper consortium’s recount results ‘for national security’ reasons, and by the time they finally were released, not only did what should have been earthshattering news get hardly any press; even if it had, Gore wouldn’t demand his rightful office ‘because we were at war.’
If you’re not already aware of it, see my attached Pentagon Attack Papers, which has been published in New York Times bestselling author Jim Marrs’ 9/11 Truth expose The Terror Conspiracy, and is also under my entry in the ‘Government, Military and Intelligence’ category at www.patriotsquestion911.com at http://physics911.net/pdf/honegger.pdf.
Also author of October Surprise (Tudor, 1989)
Here is a section on Barbara Honegger from the above patriotsquestion911.com, JM.
Barbara Honegger, MS – Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School, the Department of Defense’s advanced science, technology and national security affairs university (1995 - present). Graduate of the Naval War College master’s program in National Security Decision Making (2001). Former White House Policy Analyst and Special Assistant to the Assistant to President Ronald Reagan (1981 - 1983).
Former Director of the Attorney General’s Anti-Discrimination Law Review, U.S. Department of Justice (1982 - 1983). Author of the pioneering Irangate expose October Surprise (1989). Author of the chapter “The Pentagon Attack Papers“ included in The Terror Conspiracy: Deception, 9/11 and the Loss of Liberty by Jim Marrs (2006).
Member: Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth Association Statement:
“Scholars and professionals with various kinds of expertise---including architects, engineers, firefighters, intelligence officers, lawyers, medical professionals, military officers, philosophers, religious leaders, physical scientists, and pilots---have spoken out about radical discrepancies between the official account of the 9/11 attacks and what they, as independent researchers, have learned.
They have established beyond any reasonable doubt that the official account of 9/11 is false and that, therefore, the official “investigations” have really been cover-up operations.
Thus far, however, there has been no response from political leaders in Washington or, for that matter, in other capitals around the world. Our organization, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, has been formed to help bring about such a response.
We believe that the truth about 9/11 needs to be exposed now---not in 50 years as a footnote in the history books---so the policies that have been based on the Bush-Cheney administration’s interpretation of the 9/11 attacks can be changed.
We are, therefore, calling for a new, independent investigation of 9/11 that takes account of evidence that has been documented by independent researchers but thus far ignored by governments and the mainstream media.”
Contributing author to The Terror Conspiracy: Deception, 9/11 and the Loss of Liberty 9/6/06: “The US military, not al Qaeda, had the sustained access weeks before 9/11 to also plant controlled demolition charges throughout the superstructures of WTC 1 and WTC 2, and in WTC 7, which brought down all three buildings on 9/11. . . .
A US military plane, not one piloted by al Qaeda, performed the highly skilled, high−speed 280−degree dive towards the Pentagon that Air Traffic Controllers on 9/11 were sure was a military plane as they watched it on their screens. Only a military aircraft, not a civilian plane flown by al Qaeda, would have given off the “Friendly” signal needed to disable the Pentagon’s anti−aircraft missile batteries as it approached the building.
Only the US military, not al Qaeda, had the ability to break all of its Standard Operating Procedures to paralyze its own emergency response system.” http://physics911.net/pdf/honegger.pdf
Again Barbara, many thanks for your insights and courage in speaking out now as then.
