    Russian Whistleblower Dimitri Khalezov Says U.S. And Russia Are Framing Former Russian Military Officer Viktor Bout.
    "This is a strange new kind of war where you learn just as much as you are able to believe." - Ernest Hemingway

    "The numbers out of the Pentagon are baffling, as if Military Censorship has already been imposed on the media. It is ominous. The only news on TV comes from weeping victims and ignorant speculators.

    The lid is on. Loose Lips Sink Ships. Don't say anything that might give aid to The Enemy." - Hunter S. Thompson

    "It's still disorderly, with mysteries forever abounding, but at least get a glimpse of what played out, those very things they don't want us to ever know, as our history becomes one massive National Security Secret." - George Bailey
    The 9/11 cover story is falling apart, but as we get closer to the tenth anniversary of the catastrophic attacks more disinformation and propaganda will be directed against the American people, U.S. government officials, and the global public about the nature of the attacks. As usual, when one public version of a historical event breaks down, the masters of lies who secretly operate the U.S. state terror network get to work on inventing new lies and creating new scapegoats in order to satisfy the public's reawakened imagination as well as to comfort the suspicions of higher-level bureaucrats, government officials, and politicians.

    One of the biggest holes in the official 9/11 story is the attack on the Pentagon. The U.S. government's states that a Boeing 757 airplane hit the Pentagon but the facts don't bear this out. The damage on the side of the Pentagon wall showed no signs of wing marks from an airplane. A CNN reporter was on the ground after the attack happened, and this is what he said: "From my close-up inspection there is no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon."

    So far, the U.S. government has refused to release video footage that captured the attack. If such evidence were to be released in the future, it may answer some questions, or it may raise new questions, depending on how such evidence is leaked to the media, and how it is presented to the public.

    According to Dimitri Khalezov, a former Soviet military officer who specialized in nuclear intelligence, the Soviet-built P-700 Granit Missile struck the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. In an interview with researcher and author Daniel Estulin on October 14, 2010, Khalezov said that in order to cover up this crime and save face the U.S. and Russian governments are cooperating together to find a fall guy. The guy's name is Viktor Bout, a former Russian military officer, and an alleged arms trafficker. J. Bruce Campbell writes in Veterans Today that Bout "established an air freight business in war-torn Africa when the other companies shut down their operations due to unpredictable violence in many African countries. Victor stepped in with his fleet of well-used but serviceable cargo haulers and did quite well for some years. When the violence subsided, the competitors got going again and arranged for Victor's business to be excluded. He finally gave up and returned to Russia."

    Bout was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand on March 6, 2008 by Thailand's police for "attempting to procure weapons for Colombia's FARC rebels." On November 17, 2010, Bout was extradited to the United States to stand trial on terrorism charges, after a two-year battle in the Thai court system.

    On the surface Bout seems like what U.S. authorities say he is, a depraved and merciless arms dealer, but, as it is often said, appearances can be deceiving. There's more to the story. Khalezov has tirelessly helped with Bout's legal defense for the past three years, and has the facts to prove that Bout is innocent. He says that Bout has been betrayed by his own government, which has played the good cop in public, but has acted treacherously behind the scenes by undermining Bout's case from the very beginning. It makes sense why the bad cop in this covert relationship, the United States government, wants Bout's head on a platter, but why does the Russian government want to crucify its own soldier? Khalezov has the answer, telling Estulin:
    The Americans, understandably, demand from the Russians to find a fall guy or a patsy (or a group of fall guys) who is/are responsible for the missile that was found in the middle of the Pentagon. Considering that the missile was actually nuclear-tipped (with a half-megaton thermo-nuclear warhead that is more than 25 times the size of the Hiroshima bomb) you can imagine that the Americans are quite insistent with their demands to the Russians to find, at last, the culprit and to surrender him to the US Justice. It is indeed serious. But when it comes to the Russians, they can not admit the truth -- that the "Granit" missile with its thermo-nuclear warhead was stolen from the sunken "Kursk" submarine, because Putin back in 2000 solemnly declared to the world that there were no nuclear weapons on board of the sunken submarine.
    Khalezov says that a massive propaganda campaign has been directed against Bout. He's been called the "merchant of death" and the 2005 film Lord of War is supposedly based on his life. But these are lies. The demonization of Bout is necessary in order for the public to believe that he is the one who sold the Russian P-700 Granit Missile on the black market to Arab terrorists. The insiders who control the United States government are making a scapegoat out of Bout, just as they did with Osama Bin Laden, Lee Harvey Oswald, and James Earl Ray. It is a familiar pattern. Khalezov's courageous truth-telling is so important because it knocks down the Hollywood myth that has been built around Bout.

    Of course, none of these scapegoats are "nice guys." Osama Bin Laden was not a nice guy, but he didn't do 9/11, Oswald was a loony but he didn't kill John F. Kennedy. And Viktor Bout didn't sell any missile to any terrorist group. As Oswald's mother said, "this is a frame up." All of these cases are frame-ups.

    And the frame ups will go on until we as citizens stop falling for falsehoods. Facts are facts. And myths are myths. We must cast them apart, and stick with the facts. If we don't, then the public will continue to fall for the scapegoat theory every time, which is why criminal governments always pin crimes on innocent scapegoats, whether the Russian government or the U.S. government.

    We must admit that the entire war on terror is bogus. Nothing the U.S. government says is real. In fact, as writer/photographer George Bailey says in his article ' It's All In The Theater!,' all of modern American history is "one massive National Security Secret." Our job is to expose all of it. We can't leave any stone unturned. We must reclaim history, defend the accused, and put away the rotten criminals and traitors.

    Thankfully, there are individuals around who are busy exposing U.S. national security secrets that threaten America, and world peace. Some of those individuals are J. Bruce Campbell of the website Veterans Today , Veterans Today' senior editor Gordon Duff, and author Daniel Estulin. They have helped made Khalezov's explosive revelations about 9/11, the Pentagon, and Viktor Bout more widely known. They deserve credit for their vigilance and reporting. And Khalezov deserves our thanks and appreciation for his courage, honesty and steadfastness.

    I recommend that you read the following articles/interviews to get a better understanding about Dimitri Khalezov's statements concerning the 9/11 attacks, the Soviet missile that hit the Pentagon, and Viktor Bout's innocence. There's more important information that you should know that is not included in this short article.

    II. Establishing Narratives For Public Consumption, And Bureaucratic Consumption

    There is another point that I have to highlight. We all know that it is highly unlikely that U.S. government officials will publicly declare that 9/11 was an inside job, and that the entire story about the attacks was a complete fabrication. After ten years of lies, we can't expect the full and honest truth. The myth about Viktor Bout is not as much for public consumption as it is for people within government who have access to sensitive national security information. As Khalezov makes clear in his interview with Estulin, the public is going to be fed the same script, while high-level officials and politicians who dish out billions of dollars and make key public policy decisions will be told by insiders that the Pentagon wasn't hit by a plane but by a Russian missile called the P-700 Granit. Naturally, a series of questions will pop up in the minds of the nervous beaurcrats and politicians. Questions such as 1) How did a Russian missile get into the hands of Muslim terrorists? 2) Who was capable of stealing this missile from the Russians? 3) Do the Russians know about this? At which point the insiders will answer with the lie, "Notorious arms dealer Viktor Bout came in contact with this missile and sold it to the terrorists, and yes, the Russians know about this but they are embarrassed about this whole thing and don't want to admit in public that one of their valued missiles was stolen."

    We should remember that the individuals who did 9/11 are very clever and manipulative, with tons of tricks up their sleeves.

      This article has been translated into Russian and appears here as well.

      One of the links is to the Wikispooks version of the Khalezov-Estulin interview which was posted November last year when I was in email contact with Khalezov in Bangkok. Wikispooks has had about 500 visits from the two links so far today so it appears interest in Khalezov is increasing.

      Why does the cover story require a stolen nuclear missile, when no proportional damage occurred in PENTBOM? A stolen conventional Russian weapon wouldn't do, or couldn't be traced to Bout?

      Should we believe that a Granit missile warhead allegedly X-times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb caused no greater structural damage at the Pentagon?

      Also, the idea (in the Khalezov interview) that the Granit missile's guidance system chose the Pentagon as the most important target in DC among several options works against the well-known structural, propaganda and psyops preparation for PENTBOM, which I shouldn't need to recite here.

      Finally, Khalezov's adoption by the Fetzer-ized Veterans Today site brings a whiff of disinfo to the whole proceedings.
