Painting of Niccolo Machiavelli

This is the most common portrayal of Niccolò Machiavelli

Machiavelli wrote, “There are many who think a wise prince ought, when he has the chance, to foment astutely some enmity, so that by suppressing it he will augment his greatness.”

This tactic has often been used or considered. Germany was blamed during World War I for an unprovoked attack on the “Lusitania,” which was carrying arms to the British, and the Vietnam War was expanded based on a false report on Aug. 4, 1964, of an attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Operation Northwoods, a 1962 military plan to fake a Cuban attack on the U.S., proposed shooting down a civilian plane with Americans onboard.

Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, representing more than 560 professionals, has released a report stating that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers and World Trade Center Building 7 showed the signs of controlled demolition, including a rapid and symmetrical fall, clouds of pyroclastic (heated) smoke and debris, and residue of the incendiary agent thermate in dust samples taken from the site. Building 7 had no collisions or fuel fires, yet fell in free-fall speed into its own footprint. In similar buildings, fire has produced only softening in the steel, never total collapse.

In a Dec. 28 letter, FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Michael Heimbach wrote that the group “presents an interesting theory, backed by thorough research and analysis.” Would a full investigation prove that Machiavelli’s statement also describes the events of 9/11?

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!

We continue to update the website to make the nearly 3000 articles easier to find, read and share. Thanks for visiting us!
