Still, despite all this overwhelming evidence of Israeli foreknowledge, planning, and coordination prior to 9-11, there are still some who refuse to acknowledge their participation and/or responsibility. A perfect example can be derived from the transcript of a May 8, 2006 broadcast by well-known Austin, Texas alternative media radio show host Alex Jones, who was interviewing Mike Berger (Jewish): Alex Jones: You and I have both been criticized - I don't know if you're aware of this - uh, for not saying that Israel carried out the [9-11] attacks. Now, now, I'm sorry folks. Israel can't make NORAD stand down. 911 Truth.org Rep Mike Berger: (hearty laughter) Alex Jones: Israel ... Israel... Israel can't make the F-16s be off doing drills that day. Israel certainly is part of this whole global system, certainly involved in false flag ops in Israel and in Europe. They've been caught; it's been in their major papers. I've reported on that, but from all the angles I've looked at this, it's this multi-national crime syndicate manipulating our government that orchestrated 9-11, and to say that Israel did it is a poison pill. So, let's address one specific allegation: was Israel able to exert enough influence on our military to create some sort of "standdown" scenario? As you will see, the answer is a resounding yes.
