From the December 2009 Idaho Observer:
The Hidden Bombing of WTC 6
"We are benefitting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq." ~ Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at Bar-Ilan University, April 2008. An amazingly callous Netanyahu told the New York Times on 9-11 that the terror attacks were "very good" for U.S.-Israeli relations. His comments at Bar-Ilan University, a religious Zionist school, were made in Hebrew and directed at an audience that is well aware of Israel's involvement in 9-11. These comments were certainly not meant to be translated for worldwide reading (the original article was published in the Hebrew language newspaper Maariv) and should be seen as a sort of public confession in which the leader of the Likud, Israel's right-wing extremist movement, tried to rationalize the Israeli false-flag terror atrocity on the United States. Joe Lockhart, spokesman for President Bill Clinton, described Netanyahu as "one of the most obnoxious individuals you're going to come into - just a liar and a cheat. He could open his mouth and you could have no confidence that anything that came out of it was the truth." It's high time for an international arrest warrant to be put out for Netanyahu and Ehud Barak to be tried for terrorism and war crimes.

Despite the fact that the horrible events of September 11 occurred in broad daylight and were widely photographed, significant aspects of the attacks have been completely suppressed by a media blackout. A massive explosion, witnessed by millions of television viewers on CNN, evidently devastated WTC 6, the 8-story U.S. Customs House, although no national newspaper or media outlet has said a word about it.
The unexplained blast occurred between the burning North Tower and the 47-story Salomon Brothers Building, known as WTC 7, immediately after United Airlines Flight 175 smashed into the South Tower, at about 9:03 a.m. The explosion at WTC 6 was shown afterwards on CNN. Because it was not broadcast as it happened there has been some confusion about when it actually occurred. The large amount of smoke seen cascading around the South Tower in the video led some observers to mistake the blast for a dust cloud from the subsequent collapse of the tower.
The split-second precision of the bombing of WTC 6 reveals the sophisticated military planning of the criminal mastermind behind 9-11. The blatant cover-up of this explosion, witnessed by hundreds of gagged members of New York's fire and police departments, is ample evidence of the complicity of the controlled media to hide the truth of what happened on 9-11, along with the mayor of New York City and the U.S. government.
Timing confirmedI contacted the archives of CNN during the summer of 2002 to inquire about the precise time of their video footage of a huge dust cloud coming from a mysterious blast that appeared to have occurred at the U.S. Customs House (WTC 6) at about 9:03 a.m. -- the same minute that the second plane struck the South Tower on 9-11. The raw video material has precise time markings, which they provided.
As I reported in 2002, CNN confirmed that the mysterious blast had occurred at precisely the same moment that the second plane struck the South Tower:
I contacted CNN to determine exactly when the footage was filmed. CNN's Public Affairs Department confirmed that the explosion shown in the footage occurred immediately after the second plane had crashed into the South Tower. When asked if the footage was taken at 9:04 a.m., the CNN archivist who could not give his last name, said, "That's correct." When asked if CNN could offer any explanation about what might have caused the blast that clearly reached 550 feet, soaring higher than the 47-story WTC 7 in the foreground, the archivist said, "We can't figure it out."
The U.S. Customs House building, also known as WTC 6, primarily housed the offices of some 760 employees of the Customs Service, a department of the U.S. Treasury. A number of other federal agencies reportedly had offices in the building, including the Departments of Commerce, Agriculture, Labor, and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms, although the agencies failed to return calls about the matter. A spokesman for the Export-Import Bank of the U.S., which had an office with 4 employees on the 6th floor of the Customs House did confirm the time of the explosion and said the employees had survived and been relocated to another location in the city. One private company, Eastco Building Services, Inc., reportedly leased space in the building.
Some 800 workers from WTC 6 were safely evacuated within 12 minutes of the first plane hitting the North Tower at about 8:46 a.m., according to a Washington Post article by Stephen Barr, "Knowing the Drill Saved Lives at New York's Customs House" dated 18 September 2001. The Barr piece is the only known article published about WTC 6, however, Barr failed to mention the explosion that apparently devastated the building just minutes after the workers had escaped with their lives.
Avoiding the subjectAlthough the Customs House apparently exploded at 9:04 a.m., the government-sponsored investigation was steered away from looking into what had actually happened. The Federal Emergency Management Agency funded an investigation by the American Society of Civil Engineers, however, investigators were reportedly blocked from the building by an order from the New York City's Dept. of Design and Construction (DDC). Kenneth Holden is Commissioner of the DDC, having been appointed by the former mayor, Rudolph Giuliani on December 7, 1999.
Regarding the investigation of WTC 4, 5, and 6, FEMA's "Building Performance" report says, "WTC 5 was the only building accessible for observation," but it adds, "The observations, findings, and recommendations are assumed to be applicable to all three buildings." A spokesman for FEMA told me that because the building was considered by DDC to be "very dangerous," there was "no data collection" from WTC 6. Dr. Gene Corley, one of the engineers who led the investigation, told me that concerns about loose gold bullion and cash prevented investigators from entering WTC 4.
The FEMA report says, "The buildings [4,5,6] responded as expected to the impact loadings." Although the report says, "most of the central part of WTC 6 suffered collapse on all floors" it adds, "damage was consistent with the observed impact load." The Customs House had a huge crater in its center.
When I revisited this subject in June 2009, I examined some photos by the late Bill Biggert that showed that WTC 6 had been badly damaged before the collapse of either tower. I also discussed the discovery by Kurt Sonnenfeld, a FEMA photographer, now living in exile in Argentina, that the underground vault of the building had been cleaned out before 9-11. This story is extremely important because it reveals that there was a criminal mastermind behind 9-11 who was able to time the explosion in WTC 6 to coincide exactly with the crash of the airplane into the South Tower.
The Zionist-controlled media in the United States and Britain have ignored the evidence of the huge explosion that destroyed WTC 6 as the plane crash distracted cameras and onlookers. This was the plan. It is like a circus where the attention of the audience is controlled by the use of spotlights that illuminate one act while the rest of the arena is in darkness. In this respect, the bombing of WTC 6 is like the huge debris field that is about one mile from the small crater where we are told Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, PA. The public's attention is focused on the twenty-foot crater while the real evidence is kept hidden from the prying eyes of the press.
Numerous photographs and analysis by Jack White, professional photographer, reveal that WTC 6 was bombed at 9:04 on 9-11 and that the controlled media is complicit in the criminal cover-up of the truth. These photos can be seen in full size on Jack White's website at www.911studies.com/index.html
