Art Bell 9-11 Outrage

  Art Bell Responds to 9-11 Outrage
by Victor Thorn - June 18, 2004

On the morning of Sunday, June 13, 2004, syndicated radio talk show host Art Bell betrayed, slapped in the face, and turned his back on every 9-11 researcher in this country (and the world). He did so by embarking on a venom-filled tirade where he called these truth-seekers “asinine,” “reprehensible,” “horrendous,” and declared that they “didn’t have a shred of proof” to substantiate their claims. Bell also made it known that he “couldn’t believe elected officials would choose to kill thousands of its own citizens.” Now, this isn’t simply ‘entertainment’ as some have suggested. Rather, it is a direct attempt to influence millions of listeners and lead them in a direction that is contrary to some extremely well-researched evidence, and this is something I take very seriously.

The following day on WING TV we relayed these exact quotes, and the response from the 9-11 community, along with many others, was so overwhelming that it crashed our server. In addition, we received more feedback from this show than any other we have ever broadcast. The reaction was unanimous on every front: Art Bell is a phony, a sell-out, and a disinformation agent.

The following are a sampling of the responses that we received:

Viewer: Finally, somebody points out the obvious about Art Bell. He is a phony!!!! I think he was from the beginning. Bill Cooper wrote some interesting stuff about him too … worth a read …

Well-known activist: Not surprised are you really? He is a government mouthpiece and always has been.

Director of an online news service: Yeah, I heard the turd. He is just another propagandist. Noory seems better, but I fear he is simply there to cast doubts and to neutralize. Time will tell where he really stands.

The recipient of a recent review in the American Free Press: The reason why Art Bell is so huge is because he is one of them. They get the support so they can shout down any real investigators. Everything I have heard of Bell is that he is a farce in sheep’s clothing. He best be shutting up.

Widely acclaimed author: This supports what we privately know about WHY the Art Bell show is such a hit, when in reality it is a pure bullshit propaganda radio machine for the NWO agenda. Eventually every criminal shows his face … though from experience only about 25% who see it actually identify the criminal.

9-11 author and researcher: The closer we get, the louder they’ll yell.

9-11 investigator: Maybe I should offer to take him on, mano-a-mano!

In addition, we also received an e-mail from someone who said that he was the impetus for Art’s diatribe: “I was the impetus for Art Bell’s 9-11 conspiracy comments. On the Art Bell fan message board Fantastic Forum which Art frequently gives a nod to and obviously reads; I posted a thread critiquing his September denial. The thread caused a stir at the Fantastic Forum which I was quite surprised by. Apparently nobody had broached the subject at the forum before. The thread didn’t last long, though, because the moderator deemed it too hot for the forum and didn’t want poor Art to be critiqued. A few days after posting the September 11 thread, Art started railing against the 9-11 conspiracy. My post was definitely the reason Art made those comments.”

Whether this statement is true is certainly open to debate, but I looked into the above-mentioned group and did indeed find page-after-page of material that confirmed this person’s assertions. And even though I don’t have the space to recount every message, the overwhelming sentiment can be summed-up by the following posts: “His publicly aired political views of late truly disturb me and seem extremely incongruent to the Art of the past,” “I was surprised and baffled by Art’s downright refusal to even entertain the subject … it just doesn’t fit that he would flat-out ignore 9-11,” and “something is up, something’s wrong.”

I could continue in this vein, but the big question at this point is: do we have a full-fledged disinformation artist on our hands? Or has Art simply sold-out his audience after signing-on with Clear Channel? Another possibility (albeit an unlikely one) is that Art Bell is simply uninformed. Now, I tend to doubt this scenario, for anyone who has listened to Coast-to-Coast AM knows that Art is one of the most well-read men in the country.

So, to give him the benefit of the doubt, and to also show that we’re willing to play fair, we’ll provide Art with a list of a dozen or so top-notch researchers who we are sure would love to enlighten him on his show. We will also send him copies of all the books we’ve written and published on this subject, including The New World Order Exposed, The New World Order Illusion, 9-11 Exposed, The Day America Died by John Kaminski, and the soon-to-be-released Where is Flight 77 by Ian Barksdale. Last but not least, if Art would like to discuss this matter in person with us, we are extending an open invitation for him to appear on WING TV – any time, any place.

So, Art, the ball is now in your court, and considering how 9-11 is the pivotal event of the 21st century, we feel that you need to further explain your views. As it stands now, what you have done to all the earnest, well-intentioned 9-11 researchers is inexcusable, for many of these people fall into an audience that has been your bread-and-butter and made you what you are today. More importantly, we aren’t settling for the contrived mass media-government explanation of 9-11, especially since it has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese.

On a personal note, Art, I was one of the first 9-11 researchers in the country, and I’ve been saying for nearly three years now that if you had focused as much attention on this subject as you have on ghosts and shadow people, we would be a lot closer to exposing the crimes that were committed by a small cabal of psychopathic monsters inside and outside the government. You reach 9 million people in 550 markets, yet you’ve adamantly refused to pursue many of the underlying truths associated with this event. Why? Who are you protecting?

To close, last Sunday you threw down the gauntlet by making those caustic remarks about my fellow 9-11 researchers. Not only are you utterly wrong in your assertions, but you should also remember one very important point: sometimes when you bite that hand that feeds you, the people holding those hands bite back.

Art Bell’s Response – June 17, 2004 (prior to the above article being written)

Just a quick note from Art Bell. How could I betray you when I was never with you in the first place? I am willing to entertain as many things as possible; however after a review of the evidence, I will NOT entertain the possibility that the U.S. Government killed its own people. The only OUTRAGE in my opinion is people like you who rush to take questions about a complex tragic event and turn them into so-called evidence. People like you who rush to think the nation of their birth and the best nation in the world (by measure of anyone well traveled) could do such a thing. My anonymity needs no protection because I am not ashamed of my opinion.

Art Bell

Victor Thorn’s response

1) Art, not one of the above-mentioned individuals requested that their comments be “off-the-record”. I elected to make them “anonymous” for one specific reason – to protect their privacy.

2) I certainly have not “rushed” to any conclusions regarding 9-11, for I, along with many others, have been painstakingly researching this subject for nearly three years now.

3) I agree with you completely that America is by far the greatest country in the world, and anyone who watches WING TV or reads my articles knows how much I support it. This is why we so adamantly want to know the truth about what happened on the morning of 9-11. One of the best ways to do this is by making ALL the information available in as many forums as possible. Open the doors and HELP US, Art, rather than closing them and blocking us out.

4) Lastly, I agree with you again that the vast majority of elected officials in the United States government would not deliberately kill their own citizens. But 9-11 wasn’t planned, implemented, and covered-up by these individuals. Rather, it was executed by a small cabal of bloodthirsty lunatics inside and outside of our government. This point is crucial in understanding the 9-11 terror attacks.


Art Bell: Burn in Hell
by Victor Thorn - July 28, 2004


In mid-June, 2004, WING TV broadcast an episode called Art Bell 9-11 Outrage that received so many hits that it crashed our server. The topic of this show was some incendiary comments uttered by Mr. Bell on his Coast to Coast AM radio show where he called 9-11 researchers and truth-seekers “asinine,” “reprehensible,” and horrendous.” He also added that those who didn’t slavishly believe the official government/mainstream media version of 9-11 “didn’t have a shred of proof” to substantiate their claims.

Following this broadcast, I began a correspondence with Art; my ultimate intent being to get some credible, hard-hitting 9-11 material into his hands that would contradict the lies being perpetrated by our current administration, corporate-controlled news puppets, and the 9-11 whitewash committee. To his credit, Art Bell agreed to take a look at these documents.

Thus, on June 21, 2004 I mailed a package to Art that included:

9-11 Exposed by Victor Thorn, which is highlighted by Bombs in the World Trade Center – Scott Forbes firsthand account of how the WTC towers were powered-down and laced with explosives. A must read.

The Day America Died by Florida-based researcher John Kaminski.

9-11: The Great Illusion, a fantastic video from George Humphreys, author of Uncommon Sense.

The New World Order Exposed, which contains some of the first 9-11 accounts ever written that contradict the official 9-11 version.

The New World Order Illusion by Victor Thorn and Lisa Guliani.

In addition, I told Art that if he so desired, I would also send in the near future some publications that were not yet in my possession at that time, including:

Where is Flight 77 by Ian Barksdale, which shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was zero possibility that a Boeing 757 struck the Pentagon on the morning of 9-11.

Painful Deceptions and Painful Questions by Eric Hufschmid.

The New Pearl Harbor by theologian David Ray Griffin.

Inside Job: Unmasking the 9/11 Conspiracies by best-selling author Jim Marrs.

Regrettably, since mailing these publications, I have yet to hear one word from Art Bell, despite the fact that I have now sent him at least half-a-dozen e-mails (four of them within the past week). I know that Art received these e-mails, for none bounced back; and I also know that Art isn’t on vacation, for he appeared in his regular slot over the weekend on Coast to Coast.

So, the big question now is: what is Art Bell so afraid of? Why has he absolutely failed to bring the above-mentioned alternative 9-11 information to his listeners’ attention; or that of others such as Daniel Hopsicker, Barry Zwicker, Thierry Meyssan, and Michael Chossudovsky? In fact, if Art had legitimately and earnestly begun reporting the TRUTH concerning 9-11 from day one, I guarantee that millions of people around the world would have viewed this horrendous event in an entirely different light.

But instead, Art has done nothing but trumpet the government/corporate media’s party line, and in my eyes this makes him the worst kind of phony possible – one that purports to be one thing, yet is nothing more than a shill for the establishment devils that pulled-off this ghastly act. The biggest question is: why? Who is pulling Art’s strings to prevent him from relaying this vital 9-11 information?

The answer may be found in some of Art’s e-mails to me where he said that 9-11 researchers don’t have any PROOF of government/New World Order complicity in these attacks. But as I pointed-out to him, there is such a preponderance of evidence which directly contradicts the official version that it makes their story look like a huge block of Swiss cheese. Plus, even more importantly, the physical evidence at both the WTC and Pentagon was immediately carted away within hours by the government’s damage control teams. These actions were criminal, and very deliberately executed to cover their tracks.

But the most disappointing and inexcusable aspect of Art Bell’s stance is his cowardly refusal to debate this material MAN-TO-MAN. On his radio show he made some explosive comments that were an overt slap-in-the-face to many honest, selfless, hard-working researchers who want nothing more than the truth. Yet when faced with the evidence that I sent him, Art cringes and hides like a spineless, yellow-bellied worm.

Thus, Mr. Bell, until you reveal the whole story about 9-11 to your listening audience and expose those monsters that were implicit in it, this message (or curse) will haunt you like a shadow: an especially brutal damnation which extends through eternity awaits those who directly deny the truth to others. In this same vein, a very wise man once said: The truth shall set you free. So, Art, I hope you’ve accepted your fate – one of shackles and chains that will enslave you throughout the remainder of time because there are no lower human beings than those who refuse to allow others to see through the veil of deception.

Burn in Hell, Art Bell.

Art Bell Sells Out
by Victor Thorn - August 11, 2004


As many people know, Art Bell created a firestorm on the morning of June 13, 2004 by declaring that 9-11 truth-seekers were “asinine,” “reprehensible,” “horrendous,” and that they “didn’t have a shred of proof.” In the ensuing two months since that outburst, I have corresponded with Art Bell numerous times via e-mail, and eventually sent him a box of books and videotapes (which he agreed to receive). My only intent throughout our interaction was as such: I wanted Art Bell to tell me where our research was faulty, especially when there is such a preponderance of evidence showing that the government/mainstream media’s version of events surrounding that horrible morning has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese.

On July 28, 2004, WING TV aired an Art Bell 9-11 Outrage video, along with an article I wrote entitled Art Bell: Burn in Hell. Then, on August 3, 2004 I e-mailed Art, asking: “When are you going to come clean about 9-11? Who has their hold on you? Please, speak out – tell the truth and let’s expose these bastards once and for all. If anything at all matters to you on this planet or in this existence, you should throw all caution to the wind and expose them. Truth matters, Art … show us that it matters to you too.”

In responding to this note, Art showed his true colors by writing, “Are these really your words, or the little voices in your head?”

Can you see what Art is doing? He’s using the oldest trick in the book that EVERY corporate-controlled media hack in the world uses – he marginalized us, just like Rush Limbaugh, Dan Rather, or Time magazine would do. It’s the same exact tactic! Thus, Art none to subtly lumped every 9-11 researcher in the same category as black helicopters, Bigfoot, alien abductees, and the National Enquirer. Instead of seriously considering our evidence and maturely discussing it, he used the same techniques as the mainstream bought-out corporate media uses – he marginalized us to the edge while intentionally ignoring the facts.

My reply on August 4, 2004 was as follows: “Art, considering the importance of 9-11, why would you respond to me in the exact same fashion as those in the mainstream media – by marginalizing this subject and making a mockery of it? How very sad, and in all honesty, how pathetic. How old are you, Art? In your 50s? I would think you’d be a bit more mature. Maybe not. I seriously think you need to grow up, my friend. Anyway, let’s cut through all the crap. How about I send you ten questions about 9-11 --- inconsistencies, if you will --- and you can respond to them and try to explain the many holes in the government/mainstream media’s version of events. Let’s do this MAN TO MAN, Art. Are you up for it, or are you still going to keep playing games?”

Art responded later that day: “I let my listeners listen to your cute little video. I will not play ten or twenty questions with you. Please go bug somebody else.”

But this isn’t the only time Art has marginalized us or avoided questions regarding 9-11. Someone I’ll call R.J. forwarded this e-mail that he sent to Art Bell on August 6, 2004, with the following message in the subject line: ART CRINGES AND HIDES LIKE A SPINELESS, YELLOW-BELLIED WORM: “So Art, why don't you just disseminate the truth about 9-11 sent to you by Victor Thorn from "Wing TV" and let your audience draw their own conclusions?! What are you afraid of? Or should I ask, who are you afraid of???!!!”

Art responded once again by using the same old tried-and-true tactic of avoidance and marginalization: “Not afraid of anybody, save kooks, nuts and well, you know … those little voices!”

After reading these words, I was reminded of a piece entitled TWENTY-FIVE RULES OF DISINFORMATION written by the contributing editor of Defense Watch, Ralph Omholt:

Here is entry # 1: “Regardless of what you know, don’t discuss it – especially if you are a public figure, news anchor, etc. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.”

In addition, here is entry # 5: “Sidetrack opponents with name calling and ridicule. This is also known as the ‘attack the messenger’ ploy, though other methods qualify as variants of that approach. Associate opponents with unpopular titles such as “kooks,” “right-wing,” “liberal,” “left-wing,” “terrorists,” “conspiracy buffs,” “radicals,” “militia,” “racists,” “religious fanatics,” and so forth. This makes others shrink from support out of fear of gaining the same label, and you avoid dealing with the issues.”

Don’t these two passages perfectly describe what Art Bell is doing? There is no other conclusion that we can now reach – Art Bell is a disinformation specialist supreme!

Anyway, since Art Bell refuses to directly answer my 9-11 questions, what I’m going to do is lay them out on the Internet so that each and every one of you can turn up the heat and forward them to Art at:


Ten 9-11 Questions Art Bell Refuses to Answer
by Victor Thorn - August 12, 2004


QUESTION ONE – The Pentagon: The government contends that Flight 77 – a Boeing 757 – struck the ground floor of the Pentagon, completely entered the building; then disintegrated due to intense heat from the explosion. Yet photographs of the initial hole in the northwest wall show it to be only 18 feet in diameter. This poses a problem, for a Boeing 757’s wingspan is 124’ 10” across, while it measures 44’ 6” from the ground to the tip of its tail. How could this massive airliner fit through an 18’ hole, especially when the windows on each side of the initial hole, as well as on top of it survived the crash and were unbroken? In addition, the front lawn of the Pentagon was photographed as completely untouched directly following the crash, with no tire marks, scorch marks, ruts, or burn marks. It practically looked like a putting green, yet the plane struck on the GROUND FLOOR. Last but not least, a Boeing 757 weighs 65 tons. The government contends that all the wreckage, including the tempered steel and galvanized aluminum it was made of, was vaporized into thin air; yet the Pentagon’s infrastructure did not vaporize, while some of the deceased Pentagon employees were identified by their fingerprints! So, human flesh doesn’t vaporize, but metal and aluminum do? Please explain.

QUESTION TWO – WORLD TRADE CENTER BUILDING # 7: Larry Silverstein, owner of the World Trade Center complex, admitted during a September 2002 PBS documentary entitled America Rebuilds that he ordered WTC #7 to be destroyed via a controlled demolition late on the afternoon of 9-11. Building 7 was not even struck by an airplane, and only had a miniscule fire inside it which was contained to one floor. When was this building wired for demolition – on the afternoon of 9-11 when pandemonium ensued throughout Manhattan, or beforehand? In addition, who specifically were the people who wired the building, whether on 9-11 or beforehand?

QUESTION THREE – WORLD TRADE CENTER TOWERS: The government/mainstream media version of events contends that the Twin Towers collapsed due to intense heat created by fire. Yet it takes a temperature of 2795 degrees to melt the type of construction-grade steel used to build the WTC, while jet fuel only burns at a maximum temperature of 1472 degrees. Also, all of the jet fuel that spilled from the airliners burned-up within a matter of 1-2 minutes. Thirdly, never in the history of the world has a steel building collapsed due to fire, including those which burned for infinitely longer periods of time with much more intense flames. Fourthly, the South Tower was struck 17 minutes after the North Tower, had most of the fuel from the jet splash outside the building, and burned at a much slower pace. Yet it fell 30 minutes before the North Tower. How can this highly improbably (not to mention physically impossible) scenario be explained? Lastly, when we bring physics into the equation and put to use a scientific formula to calculate how long it takes a structure to do a resistance-free gravity fall from top to bottom (H= ½at2) , we would find that the WTC towers would drop in approximately nine seconds – which is exactly how long it took both of them to fall. How can this phenomenon be explained, considering all the massive columns, floors, walls, and equipment inside each tower that would provide considerable resistance? Also, just out of curiosity, explain the pool of molten steel that burned seven-stories beneath ground level at both towers for 5-6 weeks after 9-11? Did this also derive from the miniscule amount of jet fuel that that burned out in 1-2 minutes?

QUESTION FOUR – HIJACKERS STILL ALIVE: Five of the 19 men purported to have been suicide hijackers on the morning of 9-11 have been verifiably proven to still be alive and well. FIVE OF THEM. In addition, not one Arab name was found on any of the passenger records for any of the four hijacked airliners on the morning of 9-11. How do we account for these discrepancies?

QUESTION FIVE – LACK OF PILOTING SKILLS: While on the subject of ‘hijackers,’ there is an overwhelming amount of first-hand testimony presented by the flight instructors who gave lessons to the supposed pilots at the schools they attended prior to 9-11. While acting as pilots-in-training, they were unanimously characterized as incompetent, inept, and without the mechanical skills to even operate an automobile, let alone an airplane. These instructors also stated that these men were utterly incapable of performing the highly complex maneuvers utilized on 9-11. How could these men – Afghanistani cave-dwellers – who were nicknamed “Dumb and Dumber,” miraculously be able to execute moves that were only achievable by the upper Top Gun elite of our Air Force?

QUESTION SIX – MILITARY STAND-DOWN: From September, 2000 to June, 2001, the Pentagon launched fighter jets 67 times to intercept wayward planes. In fact, a very rigid set of rules, procedures, and protocol has been in place for years that have to be lawfully followed whenever any type of aircraft strays off its course or is hijacked. Within the past decade, and every day after 9-11, these procedures have been followed to a T, and have not been corrupted or ignored. Yet on the morning of 9-11, on FOUR separate occasions, this system fell apart beyond comprehension. In fact, from the time the FAA discovered that the first plane had been hijacked until the Pentagon was struck - a total of 84 MINUTES had elapsed. On top of that, the Pentagon houses the NMCC (National Military Command Center), and possesses anti-aircraft and missile installations; yet none of these protective devices were activated or used – even after EVERYONE knew that the WTC towers had been attacked. This outrage so far exceeds mere incompetence that author David Ray Griffin wrote, “The attacks could not have succeeded unless some U.S. officials had given stand-down orders for standard operating procedures to be cancelled on that particular day.” How are all of these curious anomalies explained?

QUESTION SEVEN – FLIGHT 93: Wreckage from Flight 93 that was downed in Pennsylvania was strewn over an area stretching for eight miles from the crash site. Is this physically possible from a mere plane wreck, or was this flight shot from the sky, thus leaving a trail of parts (some of the pieces weighing over 1000 pounds) for eight miles?

QUESTION EIGHT – 9/11 WAR GAMES: On the morning of 9-11, the CIAs National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), headed by John Fulton, was performing test exercise ‘war games’ where jet planes were to be flown into buildings. In addition, NORAD was also conducting an exercise called Vigilant Warrior. Why hasn’t the American public been told about these tests, and why has nearly every member of the Bush administration stated that they could have never conceived of airplanes hitting buildings where there have been numerous government studies documenting this very subject (with Donald Rumsfeld being well aware of all of them)? Lastly, if the FAA, NORAD, and NMCC were all ‘confused’ on the morning of 9-11 as to whether these exercises were tests or the real thing, how did the ‘hijackers’ coincidentally know which day to select for their attacks?

QUESTION NINE – 9/11 PRE-KNOWLEDGE: While the subject of pre-knowledge is on the table, when President Bush was whisked-out of the infamous Florida classroom where he read a book about goats, it was revealed that the ‘terrorists’ had obtained top secret codes for the White House and Air Force One. The NSA’s top secret Echelon surveillance system had also been cracked; while the CEO of Israel’s Odigo Instant Messaging service admitted that text messages warning of the 9-11 attacks had been transmitted two hours before the WTC had been struck. Further, the short-selling of stocks relating to insider information for both American and United Airlines can be directly traced back to the CIA’s Buzzy Krongard. Are we to believe that 19 cave-dwellers in Afghanistan had the capabilities to derive this inside information, and why hasn’t the CIA (which uses Echelon and Promis software to monitor such stock trading) revealed who was behind the highly suspect short-selling of stocks?

QUESTION TEN – REMOVAL OF EVIDENCE: Finally, if you want direct evidence, why don’t you question why the government immediately hauled-away all of the physical evidence from the World Trade Center without even a cursory inspection from FEMA, fire inspectors, or the FBI, which is a direct violation of every ethic and law concerning a crime scene? Also, why did the government immediately bring in wrecking balls to destroy the Pentagon’s façade, while at the same time removing every piece of evidence without inspection? In addition, why did they immediately tear up the lawn in front of the Pentagon (which revealed no tire, burn, or scorch marks)? Why did the FBI retrieve every videotape from a variety of gas stations and locales surrounding the Pentagon; then refuse to make them public? Further, why has the Pentagon only released five frames of videotape from the attacks that THEY filmed? Why not the entire film for public scrutiny and review? Likewise, why won’t the FAA make available tape recordings made by air traffic controllers on the morning of 9-11 that contradict the official cover-story?

CONCLUSION: Art, due to the length of these questions, I did not provide any corroborating source material for you to verify these statements. But if you wish, I will immediately provide for you (without delay) the necessary footnotes and resources for you to fact-check each and every detail.

On the morning of June 13, 2004 you made an outrageous, unfounded statement that 9-11 truth-seekers were asinine, reprehensible, horrendous, and didn’t have a shred of proof. The ball is now in your court, Mr. Bell – are you man enough to back-up your words (as I have), or will you continue to hide behind your microphone and shrink from your responsibility as a broadcaster and American to give us the truth? Millions of your listeners and readers are awaiting your response.
