What are They Hiding? Govt Wants to Keep 9/11 Cockpit Audio Secret During Gitmo Trial

audio-recording-flight-93By Matt Agorist

So far, 2016 is proving to be the year the September 11th attacks have been blown wide open. But when the U.S. Government is involved, it’s one step forward, then two steps back.

For the first time since that fateful September day, a once oblivious populace has begun to question why the US invaded Iraq in spite of the fact that 15 of the 19 alleged hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.

Then, in an April episode of 60 Minutes, former Florida governor, Democratic U.S. Senator and onetime chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Bob Graham implicated a US ally for their role in the September 11th attacks.

“I think it’s implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many didn’t have a high school education, could have carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States,” said Graham in the interview, implicating Saudi Arabia for their role in 9/11.

Graham mentioned that a redacted portion of the 9/11 investigation, now popularly known as the 28 pages, implicates the Saudi Kingdom in aiding the attackers.

Just when it seemed that Americans were finally going to get a glimpse into the facts of what really happened on 9/11, Saudi Arabia threatened the US with the collapse of the dollar if they released the 28 pages.

Predictably, Obama caved to the Saudis.

Ah, but there was another glimmer of hope after the U.S. Senate’s unanimous passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which allowed the families of victims of 9/11 to sue the Saudi government in federal court.

Last week, after the victims’ families had their hopes built up by the passage of JASTA, it was revealed that the bill’s co-sponsor Chuck Schumer slipped in a last-minute loophole, effectively castrating the entire bill.

While JASTA would allow for families of victims of 9/11 to overcome the current restrictions, the new section of the bill would essentially allow the heads of the Justice and State departments to stay any lawsuits indefinitely. The provision allows for the organizational heads to simply “inform the judge hearing the case that the US government has engaged with Riyadh in diplomatic talks to resolve the issue” — indefinitely.

As if rendering JASTA irrelevant wasn’t enough, this week, a U.S. government prosecutor, Ed Ryan, announced that a military court is being asked to withhold from the public a cockpit recording from a hijacked jet in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, because it contains evidence needed for upcoming trials. Joanne Stocker, reporting for Sputnik News in Guantanamo Bay explains:

“[The voice recording] has significant events for the purposes of the government’s case-in-chief,” Ryan told Judge James Pohl. “It proves hijacking in the first place. It proves intent. It proves the initial murders of the crew in the cockpit — the sounds of which can be heard — and, at the end, it contains the attempts to retake the airliner.”

The recording is from United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in a field in Pennsylvania before reaching its intended target. Flight 93’s recording is unique as it is the only one which survived the September 11 attacks.

The recording allegedly captured passengers taking back over the plane from the hijackers before the plane crashed.

According to Sputnik, Ryan stated that the prosecution plans to play the audio at upcoming trials of suspects detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison.

He explained that the protective order must be in place before the US government can turn the audio over to lawyers who are defending terrorist suspects, including alleged mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Keeping the recording a secret is a kick in the teeth for the families who lost their loved ones on that day, especially the ones on Flight 93. It is also entirely unnecessary. The ones who are allegedly on trial are in Gitmo, and American citizens listening to that audio would have zero impact on the outcome of these hearings.

The court’s keeping this audio secret is just another reason American citizens, and the victims’ families in particular, have no reason to trust their government any longer.

  1. To all the “bulldogs” out there who will not let go of this preposterous “explanation” by our government of the events of 9-11, THANK YOU. We will not rest until the true perps have been fully exposed, held accountable, tried and justly sentenced for their crimes against the people of the US. Should this include dual citizens or those of great wealth or holding high office and “esteem”, so be it. Criminals belong in jail, especially those who murder without remorse for their “great plan or higher cause”, not those who have been swept up, rendered, tortured and held without charges for the rest of their lives in Gitmo. The outrage is overwhelming to those of us with conscience. Keep up the good work and do not stop your efforts to restore confidence in America’s ability to return to a true system of justice for all,one that blatantly does not favor those who consider themselves “above the law”.

    it’s called a black box…they are indestructible….and they have the ones from the twin towers but they claim not to

    • They do not have them. There were no planes. 9/11 was a “can’t fail” operation. The Towers were brought down with military grade thermite, shaped charges, 5th generation nuclear weapons (see reports of short half-life radionuclides found at “ground zero), and, in particular, some kind of new weapon capable of turning an entire 110 story building into micron-sized dust in approx. 10 seconds.

      Whoever planned this could not leave the success of the operation dependent on planes reaching their targets, which could easily have failed.

  3. Everyone who want to understand the physical facts about the demolition of WTC1,2,7 , please read the book from Prof. Judy Wood:”Where did the Towers Go: Evidence of Directed Free-energy Technology on 9/11″. Judy’s web page describes her intentions for this 500pages long scientific forensic research:”This book is a summary of the physical evidence submitted in my federal qui tam
    case accusing the defendants of science fraud. NIST was mandated by
    congress to “Determine why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed…” yet NIST
    admitted to me that they did not analyze the “collapse.” The
    contractors they hired with taxpayer money knowingly allowed the
    fraudulent report to become final.”

    It takes 15 years to think about declassifying some presumable flight recordings which suppose to show how guilty the ‘catched terrorists’ are??? This is a JOKE

      unfortunately Dr. Wood is a known loon – her sophomoric technical sophistry fails the litmus test – unless this was a result of the aliens a la “Independence Day” system that inspired Jude – one must remember they are a lot of clowns like this poisoning the well – and deflecting from rational arguments to counter the NIST Myth.

        Dr. Jewdy Wood is *not* a loon.

        She is running a disinformation campaign for her Tribe.

        The more smoke and nonsense people like her inject, the easier it is to hide the Truth about 9/11.

    With every passing day the supposedly “alternative” Activist Post proves that it is yet another mouthpiece for the psychopaths.
    This article is completely DIVERSIONARY garbage!

    Why is it assumed that the alleged hijackers had legitimate Saudi passports? Australia passports were used by a non Australian assassination team in Italy. Despite complaints by the Australian Government, mossad continues this practice today, with stolen identities and passports.

    Logic is the enemy of the propagandists. Because of that, no serious discussion or debate is ever allowed on any subject that the propagandists seek to control. Anyone who pushes the official 9/11 story is being economical with the truth.

    Remember when Brier Rabbit begged the Fox and Wolf not to throw him in brier thicket?

    If anyone believes these audio tapes supporting the Official Narrative are real, I have a large Ferris Wheel in London to sell you. Best price!
