Actor Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Story
Calls for truly independent investigation, joins growing ranks of prominent credible whistleblowers
Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | March 20 2006
Actor Charlie Sheen has joined a growing army of other highly credible
public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances
Over the past two years, scores of highly regarded individuals have gone public to express their serious doubts about 9/11. These include former presidential advisor and CIA analyst
<http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/october2005/191005McGovern.htm> Ray McGovern, the father of Reaganomics and former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury
Paul Craig Roberts, BYU physics Professor
Steven Jones, former German defense minister
<http://www.prisonplanet.com/020804vonbuelow.html> Andreas von Buelow,
former MI5 officer
Shayler, former Blair cabinet member
Meacher, former Chief Economist for the Department of Labor during President
George W. Bush's first term
> Morgan Reynolds and many more.
Speaking to The Alex Jones Show on the GCN Radio Network, the star of
current hit comedy show Two and a Half Men and dozens of movies including
Platoon and Young Guns, Sheen elaborated on why he had problems believing
the government's version of events.
Sheen agreed that the biggest conspiracy theory was put out by the
government itself and prefaced his argument by quoting Theodore Roosevelt in
stating, "That we are to stand by the President right or wrong is not only
unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
"We're not the conspiracy theorists on this particular issue," said Sheen.
"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four
commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a
conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."
Sheen described the climate of acceptance for serious discussion about 9/11
as being far more fertile than it was a couple of years ago.
"It feels like from the people I talk to in and around my circles, it seems
like the worm is turning."
Suspicious collapse of buildings
Sheen described his immediate skepticism regarding the official reason for
the collapse of the twin towers and building 7 on the day of 9/11.
"I was up early and we were gonna do a pre-shoot on Spin City, the show I
used to do, I was watching the news and the north tower was burning. I saw
the south tower hit live, that famous wide shot where it disappears behind
the building and then we see the tremendous fireball."
"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown
on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that
day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those
buildings came down in a controlled demolition'?"
Sheen said that most people's gut instinct, that the buildings had been
deliberately imploded, was washed away by the incessant flood of the
official version of events from day one.
Sheen questioned the plausibility of a fireballs traveling 110 feet down an
elevator shaft and causing damage to the lobbies of the towers as seen in
video footage, especially when contrasted with
ns.htm> eyewitness accounts of bombs and explosions in the basement levels
of the buildings.
Regarding building 7, which wasn't hit by a plane, Sheen highlighted the use
of the term "pull," a demolition industry term for pulling the outer walls
of the building towards the center in an implosion, as was used by
<http://www.prisonplanet.com/011904wtc7.html> Larry Silverstein in a
September 2002 PBS documentary when he said that the decision to "pull"
building 7 was made before its collapse. This technique ensures the building
collapses in its own footprint and can clearly be seen during the collapse
of building 7 with the classic 'crimp' being visible.
The highly suspicious collapse of building 7 and the twin towers has
previously been put under the spotlight by
physics Professor Steven Jones and
> Kevin Ryan of Underwriters Laboratories, the company that certified the
steel components used in the construction of the World Trade Center towers.
"The term 'pull' is as common to the demolition world as 'action and 'cut'
are to the movie world," said Sheen.
Sheen referenced firefighters in the buildings who were eyewitnesses
<http://www.prisonplanet.com/032404firefightersdiscuss.html> to demolition
style implosions and bombs.
"This is not you or I watching the videos and speculating on what we saw,
these are gentlemen inside the buildings at the very point of collapse."
"If there's a problem with building 7 then there's a problem with the whole
thing," said Sheen.
Bush's behavior on 9/11
Sheen then questioned President Bush's actions on 9/11 and his location at
the Booker Elementary School in Florida. Once Andy Card had whispered to
Bush that America was under attack why didn't the secret service immediately
whisk Bush away to a secret location?
By remaining at a location where it was publicly known the President would
be before 9/11, he was not only putting his own life in danger, but the
lives of hundreds of schoolchildren. That is unless the government knew for
sure what the targets were beforehand and that President Bush wasn't one of
"It seems to me that upon the revelation of that news that the secret
service would grab the President as if he was on fire and remove him from
that room," said Sheen.
The question of how Bush saw the first plane hit the north tower, when no
live footage of that incident was carried, an assertion that Bush repeated
twice, was also put under the spotlight.
"I guess one of the perks of being President is that you get access to TV
channels that don't exist in the known universe," said Sheen.
"It might lead you to believe that he'd seen similar images in some type of
rehearsal as it were, I don't know."
The Pentagon incident
Sheen outlined his disbelief that the official story of what happened at the
Pentagon matched the physical evidence.
"Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how
this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500
miles and hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming
across treetops the last 500 meters."
We have not been able to confirm that a large commercial airliner hit the
Pentagon because the government has seized and refused to release any
footage that would show the impact.
"I understand in the interest of national security that maybe not release
the Pentagon cameras but what about the Sheraton, what about the gas
station, what about the Department of Transportation freeway cam? What about
all these shots that had this thing perfectly documented? Instead they put
out five frames that they claim not to have authorized, it's really
suspicious," said Sheen.
Sheen also questioned how the plane basically disappeared into the Pentagon
with next to no wreckage and no indication of what happened to the wing
Concerning how the Bush administration had finalized Afghanistan war plans
two days before 9/11 with the massing of 44,000 US troops and 18,000 British
troops in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and in addition the call for "some
catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor," as outlined in
the <http://pnac.info/> PNAC documents, Sheen stated, "you don't really put
those strategies together overnight do you for a major invasion? Those are
really well calculated and really well planned."
"Coincidence? We think not," said Sheen and he called the PNAC quotes
"emblematic of the arrogance of this administration."
A real investigation
Sheen joined others in calling for a revised and truly independent
investigation of 9/11.
Sheen said that "September 11 wasn't the Zapruder film, it was the Zapruder
film festival," and that the inquiry had to be, "headed, if this is
possible, by some neutral investigative committee. What if we used retired
political foreign nationals? What if we used experts that don't have any
ties whatsoever to this administration?"
"It is up to us to reveal the truth. It is up to us because we owe it to the
families, we owe it to the victims. We owe it to everybody's life who was
drastically altered, horrifically that day and forever. We owe it to them to
uncover what happened."
Charlie Sheen joins the rest of his great family and notably his father
Martin Sheen, who has lambasted for opposing the Iraq war before it had
begun yet has now been proven right in triplicate, in using his prominent
public platform to stand for truth and justice and we applaud and salute his
brave efforts, remembering Mark Twain's quote.
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated,
and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him, for then
it costs nothing to be a patriot."
