WATCH: 9/11 War Games

James Corbett’s latest documentary investigates the War Games and military exercises scheduled for the morning of 11th September 2001.

When we remember the events of 9/11, we are often invited to reflect on how the attack came out of the clear, blue sky. Until the terror began to unfold in real time on everyone’s television screen, it was just another beautiful, blue sky day, a perfect day for aviation.

But that was merely the public’s impression of the events from ground level. Little did we know at the time, 9/11 was not a normal day of blue sky aviation. On the contrary, it was one of the busiest days in the history of American aviation, a dense forest of live fly exercises, drills, simulations, fake radar injects and utter confusion. And that was before the attacks even began.

This is the story of 9/11 that you didn’t watch unfold on your TV that fateful day in 2001. This is the story of the 9/11 War Games.

A full transcript and audio only version of this documentary is available here.

Why bother with war games when the enemy is within?


I reckon in the July 7 attacks in London, the young men carrying the suicide bombs were part of the exercise and believed that the suicide belts they were wearing were fake. Patsies.


Yes vierotchka, have you seen ripple effect?


V: the belts were fake, made from plastic water bottles …real terrorists don’t wear fake suicide belts (except now, across Europe – they do). Patsies.


And see:

Thankfully there were no confusing war games the day that Robert Mueller spirited the Bin Ladens out of the country under cover of darkness.

Yes NW Woods. The same Bin Ladens who were big investors in the Carlyle Group the Merchant Bank that not only has significant ownership of the US companies that operated the USA spying networks but also whose board of directors included a number of senior members of the CIA.

To say a lot has changed in the seventeen years since 9/11 is to risk bringing the understatement to another level of meaning…

One of the earliest and best books on the disproportionate number of wargame exercises that took place on that day is ‘9/11 Synthetic Terror’ by Webster Tarpley (in the last couple of years he has become an inexplicable Russophobe but it doesn’t negate his earlier analysis)

Is this real world or exercise:


If these war games were an official excuse for loosing sight of 4 big civil airliners over NYC & WDC I’m not buying. The coincidence of W + T happening on the same time is too suspicious.
