    Yes, very good posts and thread!
    911 is so VERY important to understand most everything going on today and I fear a newer 'New Pearl Harbor' is coming up soon...and if we don't understand the last one, we'll have a hard time convincing many of the lies and deceptions involved in the new upcoming one.

    Just as a note, I had the parentage of Bruce Jackson mixed up.

    Bruce Jackson wasn’t the son of C.D. Jackson (who was Deputy Chief of the Psychological Warfare Division within the OSS). Jackson is the son of William Harding Jackson, the former Deputy Director of the CIA. William Harding Jackson recommended that President Eisenhower “..abolish the psychological strategy board which C.D. Jackson was on”. W.H Jackson, father of Bruce, was thereafter an advisor to President Eisenhower on psychological warfare.

    W.H Jackson’s Wikipedia page notes that when Walter Bedell Smith selected Jackson as the nominee for Deputy Director of the CIA, it was with a brief to reorganize the Agency with a “..particular emphasis on covert activities and psychological warfare.”

    March, 1953 letter from Eisenhower to the Psychological Strategy Board, referring to both Jacksons - C.D. and W.H.

    Bruce Jackson, W.H Jackson’s son, and the Lockheed figure who played a central role with the Project for An American Century, was a former Army Intelligence Officer from 1979 to 1990. He worked as an arms control advisor from 1986 to 1990, with PNAC signatories Dick Cheney, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz as his bosses. Jackson was later a member of Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy (CSP) during the 1990’s, and Lockheed – Bruce Jackson’s employer – was a major Center for Security Policy donor, as was Boeing. Curt Weldon, the congressman who sponsored the amendment to the 1997 Defense Authorization Bill that made Rumsfeld’s Missile Commission possible, was also a Center for Security Policy member, and Weldon would receive Lockheed donations through election cycles for years afterwards. The genesis of Rumsfeld’s Missile Commission was as much of a PNAC / Lockheed production as the later REBUILDING AMERICA’S DEFENCES document, and Jackson remained in the role of Vice President for Strategy and Planning for Lockheed throughout the years of PNAC, the Missile Commission, and 9/11. Rumsfeld's eventual Commission would feature PNAC signatories William Schneider, Jr., Paul Wolfowitz, Woolsey, Stephen Cambone and (obviously) Rumsfeld himself as members. It ran from January 1998 to July 1998, and was a concurrent exercise to Zelikow and Carter's study group on Catastrophic Terrorism, which ran from late 1997 - just before Rumsfeld's Commission started - and which concluded in early August 1998, just after Rumsfeld's group had finished their own work. Barry M. Blechman was a fellow member alongside Rumsfeld on the Missile Commission. In 1995, Blechman had presented a lecture, later published as THE INTERVENTION DILEMMA, at the Aspen Strategy group, which was directed by Philip Zelikow at the time, and attended by hawks such as Cheney, Wolfowitz, and Woolsey. In his lecture, Blechman had argued that the US should play a more active role in carrying out foreign military interventions.

    Post 9/11, Jackson – still at Lockheed – founded a group called the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq. Jackson became the chairman of the group, which featured numerous PNAC members and neoconservatives on its board. William Kristol, Jackson’s former boss Richard Perle, and Gary Schmitt were all PNAC members, and Woolsey was yet another board member.

    Once Rumsfeld's Commission had finished, Zelikow's terrorism study group had just a few weeks left to run. As soon as Zelikow's group had concluded their work, the 1998 Embassy Bombings in Africa occurred, and turned the world's attention to the threat of Al Qaeda. Ali Mohamed, the figure charged in 2000 for his role in those bombings, had trained at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and had worked as an instructor in explosives at the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School.
