How a ‘X-Files’ Spinoff TV Show Ended up Predicting the 9/11 Attacks

I considered publishing this post about three days ago, but decided to do it later for a number of reasons. In the later half of 1990s, a TV show known as ‘X-Files‘ was quite popular and I used to watch it quite regularly. In late 2000, after one of its two main leads (David Duchovny) left the show, producers tried to capitalize on the show’s brand by developing a spinoff. This new show, known as ‘The Lone Gunmen‘ was centered around a small group of recurring characters on ‘X-Files’. It was supposedly not that successful and only 13 episodes of the first season ran between March 4, 2001 to June 1, 2001. Under any other circumstances, this would be unremarkable.

So why are we still talking about it after 18 years? Well.. as it turns out, the storyline of pilot episode aired on March 4, 2001 would become relevant a bit over six months after it was aired. The episode in question was about a plot by a small clique of powerful government officials to remotely fly a airliner filled with passengers into the world trade center (in NYC) to simulate a terrorist attack. The rationale behind this plot was that such an incident would create enough public outrage to allow USA to invade a couple of middle-eastern countries, boost profits by weapon manufacturers and create a new bogeyman after USSR ceased to exist in 1991.

And now you know, why this show (especially that episode) was never re-aired on a major TV network after September 11, 2001. Here is a YT clip containing the entire episode. Enjoy.. and download it by a method of your choice, if you found it interesting. Did I mention that the flight path of fictional plane meant to fly into the WTC involves Boston Airport.

    I was always dumb-founded at the reaction of Condoleezza Rice: “I don’t think that anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile”

    All kinds of agencies had used a picture of the twin towers in the cross hairs as a watermark for reports for at least 10 years before 911. Afterwards, one of the excuses formulated for the fact that NORAD was MIA that day was that they were involved in an exercise to defend against using civil aviation airplanes as weapons (less planes ready, and confusion about gaming/reality). There are even tapes in the public domain where you can hear operators telling others to switch off the simulations and asking whether the reports are real or gaming. The Norad excuses went through about four revisions (a sure sign of making stuff up).

    The fact that the national security advisor would state something so ludicrous and ignorant as this is tantamount to a confession. The episode just underlines how hypocritical and cynical Rice was.

    (Not to mention al-Suqami’s passport.)

      Don’t forget over 15 years previously there was a little game called “Privateer 2: The Darkening” where a spaceship goes into an atmosphere and slams into a building.

    You towelhead industry muffins stole the idea from white people !!!!

    Roosh V was gonna be a terrorist but was not smart snuff to finish 1 way flight school, so he became a pua instead…

    You probably think he came up with “last minute resistance” and “game” but he stole those ideas form the Wolves of Vulvas, er Vineland and repurposed them. We get new white guys really drunk, tell ’em only skeevy MRA’s think “men can be rayyyyped” ™ and then initiate them into what prison life will be like. Yup, it’s HARD work but I’ve kept my love worm covered in dookie all these years !!!

    Also the prediction about Bin Laden by William Cooper on June of the same year. Look into how quickly he was killed afterwards and the circumstances of his death. Or the illuminati card game and its famous illustration of the event, years before.

    Some shilling: a conspiracy theorist who wrote about this, probably little known outside of the French-speaking world, is Thierry Meyssan. His book on this is https://www.librairie-voltairenet.org/fr/livres-en-francais/90-leffroyable-imposture-2.html . The whole website hosts articles by him and others on worldwide politics, some of them translated in English. I recommend it: https://www.voltairenet.org/en .
