independent investigation, joins growing ranks of prominent

Sheen (picture on the right) 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 circumstan- ces
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 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 Andreas
von Buelow, former MI5 officer David
Shayler, former Blair cabinet member Michael
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.
Collapse of the South Tower
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
"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
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 1100 feet down an elevator shaft and
causing damage to the lobbies of the towers as seen in video footage,
especially when contrasted with eyewitness
accounts of bombs and explosions in the basement
levels of the buildings.
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 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
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 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 them.
"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
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
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 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."
