from Vancouver 9/11 Truth Society


Dear friends,

We were honoured to have a surprise guest at our Vancouver 9/11 Truth meeting on
Wed. May 9th:  9/11 Whistleblower Timothy McNiven.

Mr. McNiven lives in Washington State and recently became aware of our 
activities. Despite his serious health condition, he decided to board an Amtrak 
train and came up to visit is in Vancouver, totally unannounced.

He later came out for coffee with us and indicated that he may attend our 
conference in June. If he is up to it, we will try and find some time for him to
speak to the audience.

I became aware of him and his story in 2005 via the Alex Jones show, and I 
recorded the interview.

There are links at the bottom. Including an mp3 file of his interview with Alex 
Jones which I have uploaded to our website temporarily.  I will remove the file 
from the site in a few days.

He is still seeking to tell his story and wants the Truth about 9/11 to be 
exposed, and he is still being harrassed and bullied by US authorities.

Here is Timothy McNiven's story.


Army Theorists Crafted Model of 9/11 Attack Back in 1976.


This is a very important article because it shows the degree of long-term 
planning that went into these attacks. It should be noted that from November 
1975 until January 1977 the Director of Central Intelligence was none other than
George H.W. Bush. (C.B.) (ed..)

The Perfect Terrorist Plan To Level the Twin Towers Created In 1976

By Greg Szymanski
Exclusive to American Free Press

Our own U.S. Army devised a plan commissioned by Congress to bring down the WTC 
using commercial airliners and box cutters as weapons.

The laundry list of terrorist warnings handed to the Bush administration prior 
to 9/11 makes the President and others look like "bumbling idiots or a bunch of 
conniving criminals" responsible for the mass murders at the Twin Towers and in 
Afghanistan and Iraq.

These are the harsh words of Timothy McNiven, an outspoken critic of the 
President's handling of 9/11 and a 29-year U.S. Defense Department operative 
still under contract with the government.

He says not only did the Bush administration purposely ignore Al Q'aida in the 
months preceding the WTC attacks, but the situation is even more disturbing, 
considering his military unit way back in 1976 devised a mock terrorist attack 
of the Twin Towers exactly like what occurred on 9/11. McNiven, who first went 
public in an affidavit included in a 9/11-related federal conspiracy (RICO) 
lawsuit filed against Bush and others in 2004, claims his unit was ordered to 
create the "perfect terrorist plan" using commercial airliners as weapons and 
the Twin Towers as their target.

The publicized version of the study, commissioned by Congress, was to identify 
security lapses and submit corrective measures to lawmakers. However, McNiven 
claims the real purpose of the study was to brainstorm how to pull off the 
perfect terrorist attack using the exact same 9/11 scenario.

The study, commissioned to C-Battery 2/81st Field Artillery, U.S. Army, 
stationed in Strassburg, Germany in 1976, specifically devised the scenario of 
the Twin Towers being leveled by Middle Eastern terrorists using commercial 
airliners and even plastic box cutters to bypass security.

To silence critics, McNiven has successfully passed a credible lie detector test
regarding his participation in the study as well as other specific orders given 
to him by his superiors in case of a real attack on the Twin Towers.

The head of the 1976 mock terrorist plan was Lt. Michael Teague of Long Island, 
who McNiven says was given specific orders by higher-ups in the military to use 
the Twin Towers as the terrorist target.

McNiven said he has been unable to contact Lt. Teague, but was interested in his
opinion now that "the 9/11 attacks happened the way we planned them in 1976."

"I remember Lt. Teague changed the scenario of the supposed study from a 100 
story building to the Twin Towers," recalled McNiven, emphasizing that Lt. 
Teague was acting on specific orders from unknown superiors.

"He then said he thought it was very strange to be asked to devise a plan to 
blow up your own home town. But as I watched the Twin Towers really collapse on 
the morning of September 11th, I realized I was watching the very same thing we 
devised in the 1976."

Since that ominous realization, McNiven has devoted his entire life to alerting 
the American public about the similarities between 9/11 and the 1976 study 
without much success, his story basically being ignored by politicians and the 
mainstream media.

"Why am I doing this? Why have I spent every waking hour trying to bring this 
story to the American people?" asked McNiven, claiming he still is following a 
strange direct military order given to him more than 25 years ago. "During the 
course of the terrorist plan we were devising, I made the statement to Lt. 
Teague that if the WTC was ever attacked like we planned, I'd go public. I was 
then physically assaulted and told never to reveal anything we were doing 
regarding the Twin Towers."

However, about a week later a strange turn of events occurred. For no apparent 
reason, McNiven claims his superiors completely changed their minds.

"I was given the direct order that if the Twin Towers were ever attacked the way
we discussed in the 1976 study, I was to do everything in my power to bring the 
similarities to the attention of the American people. "I have no idea why they 
changed their minds, but I was then emphatically told that this order was never 
to be rescinded - never - because those who would rescind it, would be the very 
same people who turned against the American people."

Besides taking a lie detector to verify his story, McNiven has made public a 
detailed list of about 40 names of those individuals who took part in the mock 
terrorist plan, including Col. Robert Morrison, Maj. Joe Dipiero, Sgt. 
Middleton, Sgt. Arroyo and many others.

"There were also people from the Defense Department and the CIA who were 
monitoring the study, but I wasn't able to get their names," he added. Some of 
McNiven's most recent assignments with the Defense Department include work on 
the Northwest Drug Task Force and various other drug smuggling and weapons 
trafficking cases.

I think he would appreciate some more exposure of his story and wants the truth 
about 9/11 to come out.

You should be able to reach him via the Feedback link on website. Otherwise, I 
will try and obtain his direct e-mail addy which he gave to one of our members.
