WE BLEW UP THE WORLD TRADE CENTER..NO PLANE HIT THE PENTAGON. HELLO! -- MAJOR DOUG ROKKE, U.S. ARMY
After over 30 years in the military, happily doing whatever the military told him, Doug Rokke worked his way through college, BS in physics (Western Illinois), and MS and PhD in physics at the U. of Illinois Champaign/Urbana. All this time, he was still a “warrior”. And then, after “Desert Storm” (mass murder part I), Major Doug Rokke was handed he “DU clean-up project” by the U.S. Army. The Army brass (read corporate flunkies) knew what a hideous thing “depleted uranium” was, but Doug Rokke didn’t. When he found out, he was determined to expose the crimes, In this talk, Doug Rokke relies on his life-long contacts and experience in the Pentagon (3rd floor office, a 100 feet from the impact site) for the low down on the absurdity of a 757 folding its wings back and disappearing through a series of holes. Hello!

9/11 HELLO (Madison, Aug. 5, 07) When we blew up the World Trade Center – I want to repeat, that it was deliberately blown up. The aircraft definitely hit the sucker. There were definite explosions inside the thing. You talk to Willie Rodriguez, you talk to the police and the fire, my guys – no two ways about it. It’s on the radio communications. Everything else out there. It happened. The Pentagon, same thing. No aircraft hit the Pentagon. Totally impossible! You couldn’t make the turns with a 757. You couldn’t fly it in over the highway. You couldn’t fly it over the light poles. You couldn’t even get it that close to the ground because of turbulence. You ever stick your hand out a car window? You ever [stood] by when a semi-truck goes by you on a highway? Hello! You can’t do it.
We had all the photographs [interior and exterior of the damaged Pentagon], we had all the evidence. We looked at the stuff and we go, ‘hnh!’ Hello! There’s nothing there. You got clear, sheered off thing…on the north side which is the west side of the hole. You look at that stuff and you go, ‘Hnh, it didn’t happen.’ No engines, no wreckage, no damage, no nothing! My guys came out through the hole after it was supposedly created [by a 757]. Now if there was an aircraft or aircraft wreckage in [there], they couldn’t have come out through the hole. Duh. Real simple. You got the cordite smells throughout it. This is not real difficult to figure out, okay. Reality is.
Now when I got investigating and doing all this stuff, I called the guys at the 9/11 Commission: “Hi, hello, could you please explain to me…” Congressional staff called me back up and said, “Hey major…the wings folded back on the aircraft and it all went through the hole.” Yeck! Sorry. Reality is.
[The] 9/11 Commission Report. How many people have read it? It’s real easy. If you ever get this thing open, and the first thing you have that just blows everything out of the water. Just go to page 313 of the 9/11 Commission Report and right there is a picture of the Pentagon after the impact and the collapse. What’s really exciting is there’s no fire to the north side, the left side. The walls are standing. Geez, the engineer report said the aircraft knocked down all the walls. I wonder why they’re still standing The other thing, too, is that you can’t fly an aircraft between a light pole. [The light poles] are only two fire trucks apart. You can’t fly it over. That aircraft was [reportedly] flying at twenty-six thousand feet per minute. Twenty-six thousand feet is five miles per minute. Now I don’t know how many people fly here, man; I’ve flown everything from a Piper Cub up to a B-52, okay. I’ve been in fighters…. You can’t turn this thing [the alleged Boeing 757] that fast. You can’t bring it over, level it out and get it in [the alleged target], much less the engines would have impacted the ground way the heck out. And you couldn’t get it down there [near ground level] for the turbulence without the whole thing breaking up…
But then if you really want to get, interesting – my old buddy, Tommy Franks – General Tommy Franks – when you go to page 336 [of the 9/11 Commission Report], “Franks told us he was pushing independently to do more robust planning on military responses in Iraq during the summer before 9/11 – a request President Bush denied, arguing that the time was not right. CENTCOM also began dusting off plans for a full invasion of Iraq during this period, Franks said.” Okay. They’re already in place.
One of the most interesting things that happened in the last 24 hours, two things actually. The Sunnis walked out of the Iraqi government. Flat out walked out. Hello. It collapsed. The other thing is all the guys in our government – our President, Dickey Cheney – say that, hey, they underestimated what was going to happen. They didn’t realize all the conflicts and everything within Iraq and the Middle East. That’s the reason [put forward] go in in March of 1991 to overthrow Saddam. Because we knew it would turn into a turmoil.
CUT TO VIDEO, 1994 INTERVIEW WITH DICK CHENEY (Former Secretary of Defense for Bush I):
Question: So you think the U.S. or UN forces should have moved into Baghdad?
Question: Why not?
Cheney: Because if we’d have gone to Baghdad, we would have been all alone. There wouldn’t have been anybody else with us. It would have been a U.S. occupation of Iraq. None of the Arab forces willing to fight with us in Kuwait were willing to invade Iraq. Uh, once you got to Iraq and ‘took it over’ and took down Saddam Hussein’s government, what are you going to put in its place? It’s a quagmire.
Doug Rokke spoke at the Madison 9/11 Conference Aug 5, 2007 hosted by Jim Fetzer and Kevin Barrett. Rokke, PhD, was the former director of the US Army Depleted Uranium Project. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental science, environmental engineering, nuclear physics, emergency management, and served as a staff physicist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for 19 years. His military career spanned four decades, including combat duty in Vietnam and Gulf War I.
