WHAT MATTERS ? 80 --April 22, 2002
The September 11 "Grand Coup" ? The author of France's best-selling
book on 9.11 makes serious allegations and calls for a UN supervised
commission of enquiry.
Dear list members,
"Evidence is mounting that the 9.11 attacks were part of a "Grand
Coup" for world domination. Below is the transcript of a
presentation that adds urgency to the need to uncover the facts. The
presentation was given by Thierry Meyssan, the author of the
book "11 September 2001: l'Effroyable imposture" (Paris: Editions
Carnot, 2002), which is selling like hot cakes in France. Thierry
Meyssan was speaking at a gathering organized by The Arab League,
and attended by the diplomatic corps and the international press
corps, at the Zayed Center in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) on
"I have the term "Grand Coup" from Richard Moore, who is responsible
for the Cyberjournal web site (PS1). In the e-mail introducing the
Thierry Meyssan talk to Cyberjournal list members, Richard comments:
"911 was a grand coup. In a minor coup, some General takes over the
government of a single country. In a Grand Coup the entire world
order is transformed. The whole Enlightenment heritage has been
abandoned: constitutional government, civil liberties, balance of
powers, government accountability. International law has been
abandoned, and national sovereignty is becoming a subject for
nostalgia buffs. Police state legislation has been passed not just
in the USA, the alleged target of `terrorism', but throughout the
West, in the so-called `modern democracies'.
"In the EU, the official definition of `terrorism' now includes any
civil disobedience whose objective is to `change the economic
"This was a Global Grand Coup, with historic significance on a par
with the fall of Rome, the Industrial Revolution, or the birth of
Christianity. It marks the beginning of a new Era, what right-
wingers call The New World Order. In some sense, we are simply
seeing capitalism finally forced to show its true face. In another
sense, which amounts to the same thing, we are seeing Hitler's
vision of a Thousand Year Reich being finally realized by the same
crowd that funded fascism in the first place.
"Perhaps my words seem a bit extreme. If so, that's because we are
so far only seeing the establishment of new infrastructures, and the
propagation of new mythologies. It won't become obvious where this
is all leading until it's too late. And then most of us will be
persuaded to blame some outside cause, most likely some version
of `terrorism'. The media matrix reality is the hypnotic trance that
seduces the public frog into tolerating the rising temperature in
the simmering pot."

WHO WAS BEHIND THE SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH ATTACKS?
A presentation by Thierry Meyssan at the Zayed Center in Abu Dhabi
(United Arab Emirates) on April 8, and posted at
"Your Highness, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,
"In the first minutes following the first attack on the World Trade
Center, officials suggested to the media that the person behind the
attacks was Osama bn Laden, the epitome of Muslim fanaticism. Not
long after, the recently appointed director of the FBI, Robert
Mueller III, designated nineteen kamikazes by name and mobilized all
the means at the disposal of his agency to track down their
accomplices. The FBI thus never undertook any investigation but,
instead, organized a man hunt, which, in the eyes of much of the
United States public, quickly took on the appearance of an Arab
hunt. This reached such a pitch that people were incited to attack -
even kill -Arabs whom they naively considered collectively
responsible for the attacks.
"There was no investigation by Congress, which, at the request of
the White House, renounced exercising its constitutional role,
supposedly in order not to adversely affect national security. Nor
was there investigation by any media representatives, who had been
summoned to the White House and prevailed upon to abstain from
following up any leads lest such inquiries also adversely affect
"If we analyze the attacks of September the eleventh, we notice
first off that there was much more to them than the official version
"1.We know about only four planes, whereas at one point it was a
question of eleven planes. Further, an examination of the insider-
trading conducted in relation to the attacks shows put-option
speculative trading in the stock of three airline companies:
American Airlines, United Airlines and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
"2. The official version does not include the attack on the White
House annex, the Old Executive Office Building (called
the "Eisenhower Building"). Yet, on the morning of the eleventh, ABC
television broadcast, live, pictures of a fire ravaging the
presidential services building.
"3. Neither does the official version take into account the collapse
of a third building in Manhattan World Trade Center complex,
independently of the twin towers. This third building was not hit by
a plane. However, it, too, was ravaged by a fire before collapsing
for an unknown reason. This building contained the world's biggest
secret CIA operations base, where the Agency engaged in economic
intelligence gathering that the military-industrial lobby considered
a waste of resources that should have been devoted to strategic
"If we look closely at the attack against the Pentagon, we notice
that the official version amounts to an enormous lie.
"According to the Defense Department, a Boeing 757, all trace of
which had been lost somewhere over Ohio, flew some 500 kilometers
(300 miles) without being noticed. It supposedly entered Pentagon
air space and descended on to the lawn surrounding the heliport,
bounced off the lawn, broke a wing in collision with an electric
transformer station, hit the fa?ade at the level of the ground floor
and first story, and was totally consumed by fire, leaving no other
traces than two dysfunctional black boxes and pieces of passengers'
"It is obviously impossible that a Boeing 757 could, for some 500
kilometers, escape detection by civil and military radar, by fighter-
bomber planes sent in pursuit of it and by observation satellites
that had just been activated.
"It is also obviously impossible that a Boeing 757 could enter the
Pentagon's air space without being destroyed by one or more of the
five missile batteries protecting the building.
"When one examines the photographs of the fa?ade, taken in the
minutes following the attack (even before the Arlington civilian
fire fighters had time to deploy), one sees no trace of the right
wing on fire in front of the fa?ade, nor any hole in the fa?ade into
which the plane could have been swallowed up.
"Apparently without the least fear of laying itself open to
ridicule, the Defense Department declared that the jet engines, made
out of tempered steel, had disintegrated under the shock of the
impact - without damaging the fa?ade. The aluminum of the fuselage
is claimed to have combusted at more than 2,500? Celsius within the
building and to have been transformed into gas, but the bodies of
the passengers which it contained were so little burned that they
were later identified from their finger prints.
"Responding to journalists during a press conference at the
Pentagon, the fire chief claimed that "no voluminous debris from the
aircraft" had remained, "nor any piece of the fuselage, nor anything
of that sort". He declared that neither he nor his men knew what had
become of the aircraft.
"Close examination of the official photographs of the scene of the
attack, taken and published by the Defense Department, shows that no
part of the Pentagon bears any mark of an impact that could be
attributed to the crash of a Boeing 757.
"One must acknowledge the evidence: it is impossible that the attack
against the Pentagon on September 11, killing 125 persons, was
carried out by a jet airliner.
"The scene of the attack was thoroughly disturbed on the following
day by the immediate launch of new construction work, with the
result that many of the elements necessary to reconstruct what had
happened are missing. The elements that do remain, however, converge
in a single hypothesis that it is not possible to prove with
"An air traffic controller from Washington has testified seeing on
radar an object flying at about 800 kilometers per hour, moving
initially toward the White House, then turning sharply toward the
Pentagon, where it seemed to crash. The air traffic controller has
testified that the characteristics of the flight were such that it
could only have been a military projectile.
"Several hundred witnesses have claimed that they heard "a shrill
noise like the noise of a fighter-bomber", but nothing like the
noise of a civilian aircraft.
"Eye-witnesses have said that they saw "something like a cruise
missile with wings" or a small flying object "like a plane carrying
eight or twelve persons".
"The flying object penetrated the building without causing major
damage to the fa?ade. It crossed several of the building rings of
the Pentagon, creating in each wall it pierced a progressively
bigger hole. The final "hole, perfectly circular, measured about one
meter eighty in diameter. When traversing the first ring of the
Pentagon, the object set off a fire, as gigantic as it was sudden.
Huge flames burst from the building licking the fa?ades, then they
shrank back just as fast, leaving behind a cloud of black soot. The
fire spread through a part of the first ring and along two
perpendicular corridors. It was so sudden that the fire protection
system could not react.
"All these testimonies and observations correspond to the effects of
an AGM [air to ground missile]-86C of the third (most recent)
generation of CALCM [conventional air launched cruise missile -- see
picture at: http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/smart/agm-86c.htm
equipped with depleted uranium warheads and guided by GPS [global
positioning system]. This type of missile, seen from the side, would
easily remind one of a small civilian airplane, but it is not a
plane. It produces a shrill whistle comparable to that of a fighter-
bomber, can be guided with enough accuracy to be directed through a
window, can pierce the most resistant armor and can set off a fire -
independent of its piercing effect -that will generate heat of over
2,000? Celsius. . .
"Who, then, could have fired such a missile on the Pentagon?
"The answer was given by the off-the-record revelations of Ari
Fleischer, the White House spokesman, and by Karl Rove, senior
advisor to the president, to journalists from the New York Times and
the Washington Post. Eighteen days later, these men discounted the
veracity of the information they had given the journalists, claiming
that they had been speaking under the stress of great emotion.
"According to those close to George W. Bush, in the course of the
morning, the Secret Service received a telephone call from those
behind the attacks, apparently in order to make demands. To give
credence to their demands, the masterminds revealed the secret codes
giving access to the secure telephone lines available to the
president for secure communication with the various intelligence
agencies and services as well as for access to the nuclear arsenal.
In fact, only a very few persons with the highest security
clearances, in the top ranks of the government, could have had these
"It follows that at least one of the persons behind the attacks of
September 11 has a top government post, either civilian or military.
"To give credence to the fable of Islamic terrorists, the United
States authorities invented kamikazes. Although it would have been
possible for a well organized group of persons to bring fire arms
into commercial air liners, the kamikazes apparently used cardboard
cutters as their only weapons. They are said to have learned to
pilot Boeing 757s and 767s in the space of several hours of
simulator training, becoming better pilots than professionals. This
mastery allowed them to carry out complex in-flight approach
"The Justice Department has never explained how it established the
list of the kamikazes. The airline companies have furnished the
exact number of passengers in each plane, and the passenger lists,
incomplete, do not mention the persons who boarded at the last
minute. In checking these lists, one notices that names of the
kamikazes are not on them and that only three passengers are not
identified for flight 11 and only two for flight 93. It is thus
impossible that 19 kamikazes boarded. Further, several of those
listed as kamikazes have turned up, alive. The FBI nonetheless
maintains that the high-jackers have all been definitively
identified and that complementary information such as birth dates
makes it improbable that they could be confused with persons of the
same name. For those who might doubt this, the FBI has a ridiculous
proof: whereas the planes burned and the twin towers collapsed, the
passport of Mohammed Atta was miraculously found intact on the
smoking ruins of the World Trade Center.
"The existence of high-jackers, whether these or others, is
confirmed by telephone calls made by several passengers to members
of their families. Unfortunately, these conversations are known to
us only by hearsay and have not been published, even in the case of
those that were recorded. Thus, it has been impossible to verify
that they were actually made from a particular cell phone or from a
telephone on board. Here, too, we are asked to take the FBI at its
"Further, it was not indispensable to have high-jackers to carry out
the attacks. The Global Hawk technology, developed by the Air Force,
makes it possible to take control of a commercial airliner
regardless of the intentions of its pilot(s) and to direct it by
"There remains the case of Osama bin Laden. If it is generally
admitted that he was a CIA agent or collaborator during the war
against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, the current version of
events claims that he turned coat and became public enemy number one
of the United States. This story does not bear up under scrutiny
either. The French daily le Figaro revealed that last July, Osama bn
Laden was a patient at the American hospital in Dubai, where he was
visited by the head of CIA regional office.
"CBS television in the United States has revealed that, on September
10, Osama bin Laden was undergoing dialysis at the Rawalpindi
military hospital, under the protection of the Pakistani army. And
the renowned French journalist Michel Peyrard, who was a prisoner of
the Taliban, has recounted how, last November, Osama bn Laden was
living openly in Jalalabad while the United States was bombing other
regions of the country. It is difficult to believe that the greatest
army in the world, come to Afghanistan to arrest him, was unable to
do so, while the mollah Omar was able to escape from United States
military force on a moped.
"In view of the elements that I have just presented, it appears that
the attacks of September can not be attributed to foreign terrorists
from the Arab-Muslim world - even if some of those involved might
have been Muslim -but to United States terrorists.
"The day after the attacks of September 11, United Nations Security
Council Resolution 1368 acknowledged "the inherent right of
individual or collective self-defense in accordance with the
Charter", calling on "all States to work together urgently to bring
to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these
terrorist attacks and stresses that those responsible for aiding,
supporting or harboring the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of
these acts will be held accountable".
"If one wishes to heed the call of the Security Council, to enforce
Resolution 1368 and to punish those who really are guilty, the only
way to accurately identify the guilty parties is to set up a
commission of inquiry whose independence and objectivity are
guaranteed by the United Nations.
"This would also be the only way to preserve international peace. In
the meantime, Your Highness, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, the
foreign military interventions of the United States of America are
devoid of any basis in international law, whether it be their recent
intervention in Afghanistan or their announced interventions in
Iran, Iraq and in numerous other countries."
Surely with all the comments from leading Freemasons, with all the
cover-ups, assassinations, world economic manipulation and downright
injustice going on, one must ask of themselves is there something
going on of a higher nature beyond simple physical people who are
control freaks. One must relax one's past programming to allow for
the fact of a darker force in Nature than any loving Creator would
manifest. Once again it goes back to a constant theme from all four
volumes, "The greatest trick the devil ever played is to convince
man he doesn't really exist." He does.
Wherefore Satan: Exploring Satanism as a Viable Revolutionary
Movement by Max Frith
Bolde of the White Order of Thule do hereby wish it known that,
whilst we emphasize the "higher," numinous and luminous aspects of
existence and spirituality through the change of appellations of
both our organization and its official journal at the close of 1996
(from the Black Order to the White Order of Thule, and from The
Abyss to Crossing the Abyss, respectively, we nevertheless
acknowledge the importance, nay, necessity, of giving voice and
expression to the "sinister," or darkside of our nature. It would
not behoove us to do otherwise; the modern paradigm is plenty proof
of the ill-effects such repression produces.
"While this is an overtly and explicitly "christian" Western world
no longer, the case is still as Nietzsche pointed out more than a
century ago: in discarding the outward trappings of the Judeo-
Nazarene taint, we still have adhered more or less rigidly to the
morality implicit in the mentality. If it is true that, as Nietzsche
put it, Christianity is a slave-religion, is it not still the
official religion of the state? Most have simply replaced the empty
dogma of the church with the equally vapid surrogates of
egalitarianism, pacifism, and consumerism. The point is,
where "goodness" means "weakness," strength must be seen as evil. It
is as evil, then, that we, as ostensibly embodying the power, the
strength, the nobility of our promise as a people, must appear to
the huddled masses. Should "We Good Europeans," as harbingers and
heralds of a New Aeon "for troth with the Old Gods and resurgence of
the Tribes," exclude from our ranks those who would profess loyalty
to "Satan," the one true archetype of defiance and rebellion that
this dying old Aeon has given us? Was it not Hitler himself who
identified our enemy's enemy as our greatest friend?
"While we do not profess to be a "satanic" or "sinister" Order, we
have previously acknowledged the dutiful place of what we call
the "Black Order," that is, the negative, destructive impulse and
the ceremonies, rituals, and imagery deriving therefrom. In
officially acknowledging and legitimizing the "shadow," or sinister
side of ourselves, for ourselves, in such an open and public forum,
we should therefore faithfully follow through and permit the
darkside's expression within our own ranks. We, though ultimately
deriving our essence from the light that casts the shadow, are
nevertheless not sanctimonious!
"Within a specifically Judeo-Christian context, Satan is arguably
the most potent and negatively-charged archetype. Would it not
benefit us to tap into the energy latent in such a symbolically, and
therefore potentially, destructive symbol in order to aid the
natural process that is birthing the New on the ashes of the
Old? "That which is falling should also be pushed. That which is
crawling should also be crushed," wrote Nietzsche. Indeed, many have
credited Anton LaVey's Satanic Bible with giving practical
expression to the thoughts of Nietzsche, and let's face it, more
White youth are likely to read that than Mein Kampf under the
current social climate.
"Pragmatically speaking, "tapping into a symbol" could be taken as
meaning drawing from the ranks of those who avow allegiance to that
symbol. In keeping with their neo-primal creed, many Satanists are
in possession of relatively unimpaired instincts (read: racially
conscious), and could therefore identify with the cause of the
realization of the new Aeon, as we manifest it. Some already do, as
is evidenced by some (only some) LaVeyan Satanists in their forum
The Black Flame, but is even more evident in publications from a
group hailing from England called the "Order of Nine Angles," who
are peripherally associated with the racialist Order of the Jarls of
"Lastly, in order to properly understand the significance of the
Judeo-Christian image, we, as properly standing outside of the
current, dying cosmogony, turn to a pagan image. The Norse trickster
god Loki, though not the archetype of "evil" in the same sense as
Satan ("evil" being specific to dualist paradigms), is nevertheless
similarly a revolutionary archetype, challenging the status quo and
upsetting the sensibilities of the ruling element, the ?sir. Indeed
it is Loki who helps to engineer the fateful conclusion to Ragnar?k,
aiding Surt and his giants toward the ?sir's downfall, in effect to
usher in the New Aeon wherein an even mightier race of gods shall
grow and prosper, and thus does the wheel turn again. That is, Loki
is on our side!
"In closing: let's give the Devil his due. Hail Satan! Hail Loki!
Hail Surt! And thereafter, Hail B?lder!"
Hereupon lies the confusion in the mind and hearts of Mankind that
Lucifer has set about. With the gradual insidious infiltration
of `the one god' (`solo-mon') into all levels of thought and
religion, the actual presence of the True Creator has been exorcised
out of existence so that when people look for something real and
loving such as the God they feel in their own Hearts, nowhere can it
be found?and so they turn to whatever suits their desire for
rebellion against the norms, and, once again, find themselves
turning into the arms of Lucifer--he who has learned to control all
the avenues of exit from this slavish predicament we now find
In Volume 4, the Spiritual Hierarchy named Freemasonry as one of the
two darkest forces on the planet ?being the political arm behind
much of this New World Order Great Plan. The other was the Mormon
Church?that which has now usurped the place of the Catholic Church
in order to make itself the religious arm incarnate of Lucifer's New
Researcher and former Army counterintelligence officer Paul A.
Fisher, in his meticulously documented work, Behind the Lodge Door:
Church State and Freemasonry in America, says one Masonic journal
claimed in 1948 that between ten and twenty percent of the
U.S. "adult thinking population come directly within the circle of
Masonic influence. Imagine what that figure could be now.
"Masonry, like other secret societies, advocates a "religion," which
is sometimes termed Illuminism. This is merely a polite name for
Luciferianism. Again, this is not to be confused with the Illuminati
of the eighteenth century. Those who follow Illuminism are known as
Illuminists or Luciferians. Illuminism differs substantially from
Satanism. General Albert S. Pike said in his" Instructions" to the
twenty-three Supreme Councils of World Masonry in 1889, "The Masonic
religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees,
maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine."
"In 1889 Pike simultaneously occupied the positions of Grand Master
of the central Directory of Washington, D.C. (the head of D. C.
Masonry), Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of Charleston (head
of American Masonry), and Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry
(head of world Masonry).
Man Becomes God
"Illuminism?the Luciferian religion?teaches that man can become God
(similar to much New Age thought), that he can evolve, through
initiatory steps, into a god state himself (also a Mormon teaching).
Even though written in 1871, Pike's words are still regarded as the
highest Masonic authority by virtue of the fact that Morals and
Dogma is still required reading for Scottish Rite Masons. Pike
said, "Whosoever aids the march of a truth . . .writes in the same
line with Moses, and Him who died upon the cross; and has an
intellectual sympathy with the Deity Himself."
"Of course, once you have evolved into a god, you can make up your
own rules, make up your own morality. This tired philosophy has been
used through the centuries to justify countless crimes and
"Illuminists feel that man can attain more wisdom and spiritual
advancement by studying their secret knowledge than he can from any
conventional religion. Masonic authority Manly Hall wrote:
"Freed of all limitations of creed and sect, he [the Mason] stands
master of all faiths. Freemasonry . . . is not a creed or a doctrine
but a universal expression of Divine Wisdom . . . a very secret and
sacred philosophy that has existed for all time, and has been the
inspiration of the great saints and sages of all ages, i.e., the
perfect wisdom of God, revealing itself through a secret hierarchy
of illumined minds."
"Determining the philosophy of Masonry is very difficult. Every
aspect of Masonry seems to have both a good and a bad side to it?an
evil interpretation and a benign interpretation. (especially if you
know the association with Lucifer). Those who wish to find a
Christian interpretation in its symbols can find ample published
Masonic justifications. Those who wish to show that Masonry is
really a form of deism?built for all religions and faiths?can
easily do so. Even Muslims are well-aware of this Masonic, quasi-
"Therefore, if you find any truth in the Bible, the Mason
says "that's Masonry." If a Muslim expounds upon the science of Al-
Islam that science is called "Masonry." Some Masonic writers have
[gone] as far as to say Adam was a Mason because the Bible says he
covered his private area with leaves which represents the "Masonic
Apron." Such claims are made by those who want to make the
uninitiated think that the "wisdom of the ages" can only be found
"However, those who wish to show Masonry to be of Luciferian, or
even of Satanic basis encounter difficulty finding references hidden
in the more secretive source material, but they can be found.
Masonry itself admits to the confusion. British Mason Colin F.W.
Dyer write in his 1976 book, Speculative Craft Masonry:
"It is possible to give a Christian interpretation to the whole of
Craft Masonry . . but a non-Christian interpretation should also
exist and be just as correct.
"There is one fact which must always be borne in mind . . . as time
passes, men . . .weave new legends round old customs, or import them
from another school of belief. This tendency can be traced in
Masonry in many ways. More than one meaning lies hidden in our
silent emblems, and the ostensible explanation given in the ceremony
is usually neither the original nor the most profound meaning
attached to it."
"So, to the "Christian Mason," Masonry is an integral part of the
Christian faith. According to Dyer; "The First degree of Masonry
teaches [the candidate] that his actions must be squared by the
precepts contained in the Holy Bible, the constant study of which is
"As we will see, however, the "Christian", candidate is slowly
weaned off the Christian path, and without ever realizing it, gently
set on the path of Deism?the forerunner of modern day Unitarianism.
Desists believe in a God who existed merely to create the universe,
but then withdrew to meddle no more in the affairs of man.
Therefore, Jesus is considered to have been at best a prophet or a
wise man, and certainly not the Son of God. For, in Deism, man needs
no god and, in fact, through reason and secret initiated knowledge,
or illumination, Deists believe that man can become as God."
