On this day 20 years ago, the United States experienced the worst attack since December 7, 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Since 911, the country has changed profoundly. There is still much that is not known about what happened on that terrible day, which cost 3,000 innocent lives.
Joseph Farrell joins Whitley Strieber to close out 2016 and welcome 2017 with a show that speculates about why Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church, US Secretary of State John Kerry and astronaut and Mason Buzz Aldrin might have suddenly taken trips to Antarctica within just days of each other.
Is there any significance to this? Listen as Joseph explores what might be behind the three visits.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I awoke to hear a bulletin on the radio that a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. My first thought was that a small commuter or general aviation plane had gone off course. Then Anne called to me, "Whitley, come look at the television."
I knew at once that a large aircraft had hit the building. Anne immediately went to the computer and began writing for Whitleysworld.com, keeping up both from CNN and from friends living in Manhattan, who gave us a moment-to-moment narrative.
There is an enormous controversy about 28 pages of documents about 911 that are being released as this show airs. The documents are described as containing a bombshell, and it is generally accepted that they reveal that the Saudi government was involved. The Obama administration has said that the documents could be released within 60 days.
They are said to implicate "governments." Not just one government, but a number of governments.
