Philip Zelikow, 9/11 insider, is Mr. Official Story. He was the main speaker at the famed Chautauqua Institution on August 9, 2007. This video was made months in advance of the event to alert Chautauqua-goers (et al) just who their high-level George W. Bush operative guest speaker was, a war criminal of a high order. But on Aug 9, the amphitheater crowd applauded Zelikow's lies, as can be expected, as the Institution has long since become a neo-con play ground/testing ground.
In this video, drawn from interviews conducted in Vancouver BC with 9/11 skeptics Peter Dale Scott, Webster Tarpley, Ken Jenkins and Graeme MacQueen, the analysts call attention to Zelikow's 1998 article in Foreign Affairs, the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, entitled "CATASTROPHIC TERRORISM: Imagining the Transformative Event." Nearly two years later, the neo-con Project for a New American Century (PNAC) picked up the CFR-Zelikow language, saying that the desired transformation "is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor..." Note also, the current head of the Dept of Defense, Ashton Carter, was co-author with Zelikow of the 1998 "Catastrophic Terrorism" article.
Zelikow, hired as a Bush II transition team member for his purported expertise on al-Qaeda (according to Karen Hughes), didn't want to hear anything about al-Qaeda from Richard Clarke, chief counter-terrorism expert on George W. Bush's national security council. Similarly, John Ashcroft at the Dept. of Justice didn't want to hear anything about al-Qaeda before 9/11 from Thomas Picard, acting director of the FBI. In these and other instances, Zelikow as executive director of the 9/11 Commission, suborned perjury, Webster Tarpley charges.
Tarpley reveals Zelikow's cover-up role in the Able Danger FBI effort to expose "al-Qaeda" cells.
Canadian Prof. Graeme MacQueen calls attention to Zelikow's unique role in predicting then explicating the consequences of "the transformative event" as head of the commission charged with investigating the catastrophic terrorism of 9/11.
Filmmaker Ken Jenkins and esteemed writer Peter Dale Scott call attention to Zelikow's expertise is in creating and exploiting public myths, and that Zelikow's links to the neo-cons date to the early 1980s. The 9/11 investigation was itself an inside job.
True to form, Zelikow was a key proselytizer for the US/NATO 2011 obliteration of Libya.
