9/11 was strictly speaking a coup d’état?
At the end of 2001, I published a series of articles on the
attacks of September 11, 2001, followed by a book in March 2002 .
The book was translated into 18 languages and opened a worldwide
debate questioning the veracity of the official US narrative.
However, the international press refused to discuss my arguments
and launched a campaign accusing me of "amateurism" ,
"conspiracy theory" ,
and "denial" .
Above all, the US
authorities and their supporters reduced my work to the first
few pages of my book: the challenge to the official version of
the attacks. But it is a work of political science aimed at
denouncing what these false-flag attacks would make possible:
the surveillance of Western populations and the endless war in
the wider Middle East. In this article, I will therefore review
what has been learned about these attacks over the past 20
years, but more importantly, I will check whether my predictions
from 2002 were correct or not.
The black hole of
If we are asked what
happened on 9/11, we will all visualise the Twin Towers and the
Pentagon. We have forgotten many other things, such as the
insider trading in the shares of the affected airlines, the fire
in the Old Eisenhower Building, or the collapse of a third tower
in the World Trade Center.
What is most
astonishing is that almost no one remembers that at 10am,
Richard Clarke triggered the ’Continuity of Government Plan’ .
At that very moment, President Bush and Congress were suspended
from office and placed under military protection. President Bush
was taken to an air base in Nebraska where the CEOs of the upper
floors of the Twin Towers had been since the previous evening ;
and Congress to the Greenbrier megabunker. Power fell into the
hands of the "Continuity Government". It was in the Raven Rock
Mountain megabunker (’Site R’) .
Power was not returned to the civilians until the end of the
Who exactly were the
members of this ’Continuity Government’ and what did they do
during the time they were in power? We still don’t know. The
members of Congress who asked the question were not allowed to
hold a session of their assembly on the subject.
Please understand that
until we have clarification, the 9/11 controversy will continue.
The procedure implemented on September 11 was designed by
President Eisenhower at a time when nuclear war was feared. If
he, the Speakers and a majority of Congress were killed, there
would be no constitutional powers. The military would logically
have to assume the continuity of government. But this was
obviously not the case on that day. Not one elected official was
dead. The transfer of power was therefore unconstitutional. It
was strictly speaking a coup d’état.

The attacks of
In my book and
afterwards, I hypothesised about what really happened on that
day. But this is irrelevant to my point. The people who
perpetrated this crime wanted to create a shock comparable to
Pearl Harbor, as the members of the Project for a New American
Century wrote earlier, so that they could change the way the
United States lives and functions. So they told us a tall tale
that we swallowed without flinching. But :
• To this day, there is
no evidence of the 19 designated hijackers on board the hijacked
planes. They were not on the lists of passengers on board the
planes released by the airlines on the same day. The videos of
the hijackers at the airport were not taken in New York, but at
other airports where they were transiting.
• To date, there
is no evidence that the 35 telephone communications between
passengers on the hijacked flights and the ground existed .
This applies both to the conversation attributed to the brave
passenger who allegedly attacked the hijackers on UA 93, and to
the conversation testified to by US Solicitor General Theodore
Olson with his wife on AA 77. In contrast, at the trial of
Zacarias Moussaoui (accused of being the 20th hijacker who would
not have boarded the plane), the FBI testified that none of the
planes had phones in the armrests, that passengers should have
used mobile phones, that cell phones at the time could not work
at altitudes above 5,000 feet, and that the records provided by
the phone companies did not show any of the communications
mentioned - including that of Attorney General Olson.
• To date, there is no
physical explanation for the collapse of three of the World
Trade Center towers onto their own footprints (i.e. vertically).
The Twin Towers were hit by two planes, but were not shaken.
However, their fuel would have run down the vertical beams and
melted them. A third tower was destabilised by the fall of the
first two to its side. It too would have collapsed, not
laterally, but vertically. It should be noted that no
explanation was given for the lateral explosions heard by the
firemen and widely filmed, nor for the vertical beams that were
severed and not melted; two pieces of evidence attesting not to
an accidental but to a controlled demolition. It should also be
noted that no collapse of skyscrapers has ever been observed,
either before or after 9/11, following a large-scale fire... and
that no one has learned the lessons of this attack and therefore
changed the way such buildings are constructed to prevent such a
catastrophe. Finally, the photographs taken by firefighters of
"pools" of molten steel and those taken by FEMA (the disaster
management agency) of the melting rocks in which the foundations
were built are inexplicable according to the official version.
• To date, there is no
evidence that an airliner hit the Pentagon. Already the next
day, the fire brigade had given a press conference at the
Pentagon during which they had attested that they had not found
anything suggestive of a plane. The authorities, who had issued
a vengeful statement against my book, announced that they had
collected many parts of the plane and reconstructed it in a
hangar. Then they stopped communicating on this subject.
Moreover, the families of the passengers of the plane in
question, after having been scandalised by my words, changed
their minds when they were given back funeral urns, claiming to
have identified the bodies of their relatives thanks to their
fingerprints (which would have been totally destroyed during
fires at those temperatures). Some refused to sign the
confidentiality agreement offered to them in exchange for large
surveillance of Western populations
In the days following
the attacks, the Bush Administration had Congress vote on an
anti-terrorist code, known as the USA Patriot Act. This
is a very large piece of legislation that had been drafted over
the previous two years by the Federalist Society (of which
Solicitor General Theodor Olson and Attorney General John
Ashcroft were members). It suspends the Bill of Rights in
cases of terrorism.
At the time of the
formation of the United States, there were two opposing groups.
The first, around Alexander Hamilton, drafted the Constitution
to set up a system comparable to the British monarchy, but with
governors instead of nobles. The second, around Thomas Jefferson
and James Madison, only accepted the Constitution after it had
been amended to prevent the use of Reason of State. These 10
amendments are called the Bill of Rights. Their
suspension challenges the balance on which the United States was
founded. It gives power to the first group, the descendants of
the ’Pilgrim Fathers’, the Puritans exiled from England.
President Bush is a direct descendant of one of the 41
signatories of the "Mayfower Pact" (1620).
In order to
implement the USA Patriot Act, a new department was
created, the Homeland Security Department, which brings together
various existing agencies. It has a political police force
capable of spying on any citizen. According to the Washington
Post, which revealed this in 2011, it has hired 835,000
civil servants, 112,000 of whom are secretly employed ,
making the United States the most Orwellian country on the
planet. The way this department works was revealed in 2013 by
Edward Snowden. Snowden not only provided information about the
NSA’s foreign eavesdropping system, but also about domestic mass
surveillance in the US. He now lives as a political refugee in
although less documented, is gradually spreading to all Western
states, through the ’Five Eyes’ 
The "endless war":
from 9/11 to the fall of Kabul
A month and a
half after the attacks, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
created the Office of Force Transformation, which he entrusted
to Admiral Arthur Cebrowski. The idea was to change the very
function of the Armed Forces. The Rumsfeld/Cebrowski doctrine 
is a reform as important as the creation of the Pentagon after
the 1929 crisis. This time, it is about adapting to financial
capitalism. From now on, the United States will no longer try to
win wars, but on the contrary to make them last as long as
possible; this is what President Bush’s expression "endless war"
means. Their aim will be to destroy local state structures so
that natural wealth can be exploited without having to endure
political control; as Colonel Ralph Peters summed it up:
"Stability is America’s enemy" .
This is exactly what
has just happened in Afghanistan. The war started there just
after 9/11. It was only supposed to last a few weeks, but it
never stopped. The Taliban victory that we have just witnessed
was organised by the United States itself in order to make the
conflict last even longer. That is why President Biden has just
said that the US did not go into Afghanistan to build a state,
as it did in Germany and Japan after the Second World War. Joe
Biden had, during his meeting in Geneva with Vladimir Putin,
rejected the endless war. However, he has just relaunched it,
aligning himself with the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski doctrine like
None of the conflicts
that began after 9/11 have ended. On the contrary, instability
has taken hold in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. One can
of course call these conflicts "civil wars" and accuse their
leaders of being "dictators", or explain nothing at all, but the
fact remains that they were stable before Western intervention
and that Gaddafi’s Libya and Aoun’s Lebanon were US allies when
their misfortunes began.
Vice President Cheney
had set up a secret group in the White House to design the
development of the National Energy Policy. He was convinced that
oil would run out in the medium term. This is why the United
States destroyed states in order to be able to exploit their oil
in the long term, but not now. Moreover, the Rumsfeld/Cebrowski
doctrine states that one should not fight globalised powers such
as Russia and China. On the contrary, they should be given
access to the natural resources they have conquered, but they
should be forced to pay royalties to the US in order to exploit
By publishing a number
of internal US military reports, Julian Assange has not revealed
any sensitive information. But all these documents show that the
Pentagon has never been interested in winning the post-9/11
wars. Assange was persecuted to the point of insanity.
To wage these
wars, the Pentagon secretly created clandestine Special Forces:
60,000 soldiers without uniforms .
They are capable of assassinating anyone in any country without
leaving any trace. Bob Woodward revealed the "Global Attack
Matrix" operation, decided three days after the attacks .
Wayne Madsen published the names of the first victims in Papua,
Nigeria, Indonesia and Lebanon .
All my predictions
have been verified over the last 20 years. Unfortunately,
few people have seen how the world has changed. Most refuse
to make the connection between the revelations of one side
and those of the other and to see the responsibility of the
Western democracies for the crimes committed in the wider
The problem remains
the same: we cannot admit that the criminal is close to us.
