How 50 Men May Have Engineered 911
Douglas Hermans
I've read a lot of commentary about the number of plotters it would  
have required to carry out an "Inside Job," black operation on  
September 11, 2001.  One lively critic of the Truth Movement, Jan  
Burton, emailed me that 10,000 men would be needed. And all of them  
would have to keep their mouths shut forever.
I think 50 top specialists might carry out an operation like 9-11  
successfully. Here's how it might be done.
Four or five head plotters at the top might hatch a plan. Call our  
plan PNAC. Plan of a New Attack Conspiracy.  This handful of top  
government officials would hold the true reins of power in the White  
House and the Pentagon. I could name three or four players right now,  
just as anyone could, but I'll leave their identities to the  
imagination of my readers.
These powerful men, connected to banking, oil and the defense  
industry, would have a plan in place months in advance. They would  
then be joined by a half dozen foreign political operatives from a  
small, tech-savvy country. This small tech-savvy country would,  
ironically, have top officials in place already in the Pentagon. They  
would possess dual citizenship but be most loyal to one country.  The  
small one.
Now we have 10-12 plotters.
The secretive, top operatives of the two countries would be joined by  
a few top honchos in the intelligence field.  They would serve as a  
delaying force, delaying the warnings of loyal and patriotic  
Americans in the FBI, NSA and the FBI. Any whistleblowers that arose---
like FBI translator Sibel Edmonds or the deceased FBI agent John  
would be marginalized later by a complicit mainstream media. This  
media would consist mostly of dupes and true believers.  They would  
be outside the loop and not required to have insider information.
Now we number 15-20 key plotters.
These remarkable and clever men command huge numbers of SPECIAL  
FORCES. These special commandos resemble the Navy Seals. They possess  
certain demolition skills and variety of disguises and genuine- 
looking yet fake identification. I suspect these key players pledged  
a loyalty to a certain tech-savvy country and have been highly  
trained to follow orders.  Trained professional killers who ask no  
question. Ever. Additionally, with their identifications, they are  
allowed ready access to key security points easily.
Perhaps a dozen men altogether--maybe as few as a half dozen-probably  
gained access to the WTC buildings 1,2, and 7 in the months prior to  
that "attack."
How many conspirators do we number thus far? 30 or 35 maybe?  Far cry  
from the "tens of thousands" the Bushco apologists suggest.

Next, one would need the ability to control planes by remote control.  
Curiously, the head of a small, tech-savvy company that possessed  
that very technical electronic skill also enjoyed ready access to the  
Pentagon. He worked there in a high position as Comptroller,  
controlling the flow of money
(during a time when 2.6 trillion went unaccounted for). According to  
Wikipedia:  "In 2001, Dov Zakheim was CEO of SPC International, a  
subsidiary of System Planning Corporation, a defense contractor  
specializing in electronic warfare technologies including remote- 
controlled aircraft systems.
Coincidental? Perhaps-perhaps not.
Now you would need two or three more top people, preferably very  
rich, connected to the New York real estate market to acquire control  
of a suitable target. Let us call this target the WTC complex, a  
suitable array of architectural white elephants and one very highly  
important US government building (WTC-7) that could be insured for  
far more money than they cost.
Now we number 38 insiders at the most.  Almost all of our ducks are  
in place. The shooting gallery is just about to open.
For the sake of simplicity, we'll require some skilled commandos to  
remain close to the targets. To remotely control the hijacked planes  
into the towers and Pentagon. How many skilled technicians would this  
require? Five thousand, you say?  How about a dozen?
Well, now we've reached the 50. Anyone else is a peripheral player.  
Any top US general, befuddled at the Pentagon or NORAD is simply a  
victim, as much as those bewildered FAA air traffic controllers or  
USAF pilots. By the way, whatever happened to those air traffic  
control tapes? Guess we can add that fellow to our list of plotters,  
the top official who ordered the tapes destroyed after the New York  
That takes us to 51. Call it Area 51.  A place that doesn't exist.  
Except in the twilight zone of our imagination. Except in the minds  
of "conspiracy nuts" like myself.
Lastly, critics of an inside job, like my correspondent Jan Burton,  
claim that somebody, anybody, would have come forward by now and  
"blown" the plot wide open. Now why would they do that?  Indeed, well- 
trained commandos from another country might feel compelled to  
drunkenly boast about their exploits but I seriously doubt any  
commando would suffer any pangs of conscience.
And suppose some top official already came forward? Sybil Edmonds  
already came forward about 911 and her revelations have amounted to  
exactly nothing. Any top US official would have to think twice before  
risking his neck to suffer ridicule and probable recriminations---
and threats of harm to himself and his family. I'm reminded of those  
US Navy sailors who were threatened with simple military courts  
martials and demotions if they talked about the attack on the USS  
Liberty. Now multiply the threat by, say, death.  How many would talk
