During wartime, they would try to assassinate as many American leaders as possible, as well as their families. They would also blow up power stations, telephone switching systems, dams, and any strategic targets that cannot be taken out with long range weapons. Especially important targets are the supposed secret landing sites for Air Force One during times of war. In wartime, the president would be aboard Air Force One constantly. While it can refuel in the air, it eventually has to land to be resupplied and serviced. Spetznatz forces would be expected to wait at these secret sites – which we at the GRU were responsible for finding – to take the airplane out when it lands. The use of tactical nuclear weapons would be likely. In Soviet and Russian military doctrine, nuclear weapons are not merely for deterrence; they are to be used and Spetznatz has them available. 

Spetznatz troops are currently training inside the United States. They regularly enter the country as foreign tourists, using fake passports and their knowledge of foreign languages to pass as Germans or Eastern Europeans. 

They are the best supplied troops in the Russian military. One of GRU’s major tasks is to find drop sites for their supplies of clothes, cash, and special equipment – including even small nuclear devices, the so-called “suitcase bombs.”

On February 7, 1996, President Yeltsin ordered that industrial espionage become the top priority for Russian intelligence agencies. And the GRU is now putting all its efforts into recruiting agents from companies like Northrup, Gruman, GE, Honeywell, IBM, Microsoft, Bristol-Meyers Squibb, and countless others.

Holloway's commentary:
Many of the elements of 911 are found in these two quotes. Air Force One was targeted on 911. A phoned in threat was made against Air Force One using its secret code name ANGEL. The threat said "ANGEL is next." The only meaning for this threat that makes any sense is that they were threatening to hijack Air Force One next. The question then becomes how? The answer is Air Force One would hijacked electronically. The evidence for electronic hijacking is the performance of the planes witnessed on 911. Honeywell the manufacturer of the avionics found on Air Force One was targeted by Russia. They were in a position to compromise the avionics of every airliner in the Western World and they did.

WAS THE AVIONICS ON THE F-117 COMPROMISED?



The attacks of the 911 revealed that the avionics on the F-117 have been compromised. 911 was a Russian revenge attack on the United States for the humiliations visited upon Russia by the American Ruling Class, during the 1990’s. The precision strike on the DIA/NOC offices at the Pentagon shows that the Honeywell Avionics system used on Boeing airliners in the 911 attacks have been compromised. During the 1990’s Russian intelligence targeted Honeywell, IBM and other American high-tech corporations (Lunev, and Winkler 158). If the avionics of the 757-767 is compromised, then so is the avionics of other planes. The avionics found on the Boeing 757-767 are also found on the Space Shuttle and the F-117 stealth fighter (Ramsey) (Kopp).The Russians are responsible for the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia. They have a history of using Direct Energy Weapons (DEW) against the American Space Shuttle (Note 5). The compromise of the F-117's avionics led to its retirement in 2008.

WAS THE SPACE SHUTTLE COLUMBIA SHOT DOWN OR SABOTAGED?




Apollo Twelve's 2002 return to Earth orbit. 




The Shuttle disaster took place during the 2003 return of Apollo 12. The Colombia was either shot down or sabotaged. Meaning it was either shot down with a Direct Energy Weapon (DEW) or the avionics executed an unauthorized command destroying the shuttle. The Russians have a long history of targeting the shuttle with DEW weapons. The attacks of 911 show that the avionics of our civil airliners are compromised. The technology used in airliners are also used in military and was used in the shuttle. 



The Columbia was resupplying Apollo Twelve. The Shuttle played the role depicted here. The S-IVB plays the role of the nuclear shuttle.

The 911 attacks were designed to minimize casualties at the WTC and specifically targeted offices at the Pentagon.

WTC
The number of casualties on 911 was extremely low. 2,996 people died this is an incredibly low number considering what could have been. 50,000 people worked at the WTC and 200,000 people visited daily. Out of that quarter of a million people only 2,606 people died at the WTC. That’s only a little over 1%. Out of the number of 50,000 workers, only 5% of the people were killed. The attackers aimed to decrease the provocation. 

How they did it. 
Beginning the attacks before the end of rush hour was essential. At 0846 hours the first plane hits the North Tower of the WTC. NYC’s rush hour runs from 7am to 10am. The morning rush was a little over halfway done and New Yorkers normally start their day later than most cities. Their median arrival time is 0824 hours (Silver 2018). So, 0846 hours was chosen in order to minimize the casualties. The attackers also decided to place their first hit on higher floors than the second hit. Flight 11 struck floors 93-99 of the North Tower leaving 89% of the floors beneath intact. Flight 175 stuck lower down on the South Tower hitting floors 75-85 leaving 72% of the floors intact. The timing of the attacks also meant that people going to work decided not to go to their office.

The Pentagon
The Offices of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Naval Operations Center (DIA & NOC) were targeted that day. A sure sign of Russian revenge for the sinking of the Kursk. The attacks on the DIA & NOC were intentional. The offices were located inside an inner ring of the first floor of the Pentagon. These were precision attacks and could only have been conducted by an autopilot. In the 1990’s Russian intelligence had penetrated Honeywell, the manufacturer of the avionics used in 757-767 airliners. They were in a position to hack the auto pilots.

Bissell, Richard M et al. Reflections Of A Cold Warrior. Yale University Press, 1996



Richard Bissell’s memoirs show some interesting things about the U-2 program. The first thing they show is that the intended goal of the program was psychological warfare to deter the Soviet’s from going to war with the United States. The second thing they show is that these were suicide missions for the pilots. If the pilots were to go off course, the planes were rigged to explode killing the pilot and destroying the U-2. The early U-2's did not have ejection seats. This is despite the fact that engineers had known since WW2 that because of their high-speed jets required ejection seats to insure pilot survival.The U-2 Powers was in supposedly had an ejector seat but he did not trust it. Because the seats were rigged to destroy the plane and the pilot (Wise 10). It is not known how much time Powers had to escape from the plane because the timer to the bomb was never found. If Powers had pulled the cord he probably would have died. In fact Bissell was surprised to find that Powers survived. He had been told it was impossible for the pilot to survive. The pilots that overfly Russia today probably face the same dilemma. 

Two years later Gary Powers would be shot down or more likely, after the nuclear engine had been removed, was crash landed in the Soviet Union. I say this because the cover-story that was concocted does not make sense. It’s impossible that Powers could have escaped without an ejection seat. The story that runs along the lines told by L. Fletcher Prouty is more aligned with the truth on this when thinking logically. Prouty did omit the significant fact that the planes were nuclear powered. He kind of alluded to it, claiming that the planes were powered by hydrogen and the tanks had been removed. The U-2, according to Prouty, had a hydrogen tank the size of a fire-extinguisher. This was more of a half-truth. The U-2’s were powered by a small nuclear reactor roughly the size of an extinguisher cooled by lithium hydride which also served as a shadow shield. 

Bissell’s claim that a pilot serendipitously discovered Baikonur Cosmodrome is a lie. America had secretly launched a spy satellite in May of 1954. The U-2 and Canberra’s were deployed to take a closer look at what the satellites had discovered. The fact that America could overfly the USSR with impunity meant that America had a first strike capability that the Soviets could not match. The fact that America was doing this with nuclear powered planes meant that America could stand on station above Soviet nuclear forces ready to bomb at any time.  America’s Canberra’s could circle above Moscow ready to bomb and the Soviets could do nothing about it. 

Lastly - the quote from page 113 reveals that the Soviets and the American’s cooperated to keep the overflights secret. Similarly, today the Russians and the American’s cooperate to keep secret the Russian terror attacks of the 1990’s on American overseas assets and the continental United States i.e. the first WTC bombing of 1993, the Oklahoma City Bombing of 1995 and 911.

Page-113
“It is my belief that the Soviets always made their protests privately because they did not want to admit to their citizens that the United States could overfly them with impunity and that the government was powerless to do anything about it. This tactic suited us very well, as we did not want public exposure to produce an ultimatum for the Soviets that the world press would convert into a cause for war. What actually happened was that the two governments, even in their deep hostility, found it convenient to collaborate and keep the flights secret.”

Bissell also claims that the Soviets misidentified the U-2 for a twin-engine bomber i.e the Canberra. The CIA report on the U-2 from the early 1990’s revealed that Canberra’s were used with the U-2 on some missions (Pedlow and Welzenbach 109)

Page – 119
“On most missions pilots had virtually no freedom to deviate from their assigned course unless they had compelling reason. We were concerned that the burning more fuel than necessary might jeopardize the pilot’s life and mission.” 

Bissell goes on to claim that Baikonur Cosmodrome was accidently discovered by a U-2 pilot in June of 1957. 


The nuclear plane was going to operate at 70,000 feet. 


Page-123
“We were equally aware that a Soviet modified surface-to-air missile had an estimated altitude capability of at least 70,000 feet, which was very close to the altitude of the U-2.” 





Page-125 
“A big tractor-trailer could, as Art Lundahl says, “pull up on any highway, erect the back end, and fire an ICBM.” If, however, the operation was tied to railroad spurs, which required a lot of iron and scouring up of the countryside, it was easier to locate where the firing was going to come from before it occurred. Although, a rail served system seemed to the experts all but certain, the system’s degree of fulfillment still needed to be known.” 

Page – 129
“He finally managed to eject himself, but in the tussle and wrestle of doing so, he was unable to activate the destruct mechanism.” 

Page – 140
“I believe this strongly, and it’s a point that has never been made about the history of the U-2. The U-2 was a deterrent because it showed that the United States possessed a significant technological capability that the Soviets could not match. That was a great accomplishment.”
