On Sept. 11 2001,
filmmaker Paul Cross was doing
post-production work in Washington DC when he heard about
the "terrorist" attack. He visited the crash-site five
hours after impact and could plainly see the official story
was a lie.
"There was no passenger jet wreckage; the lawn wasn't
scorched; lamp posts, fences and construction materials in
the path of the jet were untouched." Cross told me. "If
this was a hoax, then the attack on the World Trade Centre
was also a hoax."
Cross, 45, characterizes his pre-9-11 self as a "flag-
waving patriot" who "voted Republican all my life."
He was crushed. "I love my country. I was in mourning
for weeks, literally in tears for what has become of this
He decided to alert his fellow citizens by making
the feature film
"Severe Visibility" about a Pentagon accountant,
Major Stanley Kruter, who is slightly injured in the attack.
He "has his head buried in the sand" but questions the
official story when approached by a British investigative
Cross opted to make a feature instead of a documentary
because he felt documentaries preach to the converted. He
wanted to reach ordinary Americans who could identify with
the cognitive dissonance his hero experienced as he tried to
comprehend the implications of the hoax and its mass
Cross raised over $500,000 from friends and family. Many
actors etc. wanted to participate and worked for less.
Cross wrote, directed and starred in the 90-min. feature.
The film describes his own coming to terms with political
Cross insists he identifies with the investigative reporter,
not Kruter. But in an uncanny way, his own life now
resembles the accountant who refused to pretend he saw a
Cross can't find a distributor for the movie. He can't get
it shown at film festivals in the US.
They say their corporate owners or sponsors would not
permit it. He can't get interviews or reviews in the
mainstream press. This is tangible proof of how art and
information are controlled in our supposedly "free" society.
(Many politically sensitive movies never see the light of
day. For eg. director Henry Bean had to show his wonderful
movie, "The Believer" about a Jewish neo-Nazi, to a
rabbi and some matrons at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in LA.
They didn't like it and it never reached theaters.)
Paul Cross has received hate mail, and death threats. "The
truth hurts," Cross says. "People can't face it."
But the film has been embraced abroad. "The media tells
people the truth in other countries," he said.
Cross has joined the select minority of Americans who awoke
on 9-11. We are the child who says the Emperor has no
clothes surrounded by conformists who won't believe their
own common sense and eyes.
The other 9-11 movies like "Flight 93" and "World Trade
Centre" are propaganda. They perpetuate the myths that 9-11
shattered. Oliver Stone is a shadow of the man who made
"Platoon" and "JFK."
"Severe Visibility" is hard to watch. Cross said he
meant it so. He wanted viewers to confront what happened on
Sept 11, 2001. He wanted them to mourn the innocent victims
and the demise of freedom.
The main character has a childish faith in his country. He
addresses his diary to Thomas Jefferson as if the founding
fathers were pristine. The dialogue and action are stilted.
There isn't much of a plot and Cross is pretty long-winded.
Incongruously, Kruter doesn't change the blood-stained
bandage on his forehead.
I have passed the "cognitive dissonance" phase. I wished
Kruter had been less naive and had told his interrogators,
"Hey, I wasn't looking out the window."
Christ said: "See, I am sending you out like sheep among
wolves. So be as cunning as serpents and as innocent as
doves." (Mathew 10:16)
In spite of all this, the film is for some undefinable
reason quite gripping. Kruter becomes a symbol of the
much-lied-to and-abused American people. I was glad the film
ended but I was also glad I had seen it.
"Severe Visibility" contains a lot of information
about the Pentagon attack. For example, the 9-11 scenario
had been rehearsed as a "terror exercise" numerous times.
This is why the military allowed it to take place. (As if
the "terrorists" would have been privy to this information.)
We have been colonized by an alien financial power, the
London-based central banking cartel and their instruments,
the colonial elite: corporations, intelligence agencies,
government, the two political parties, universities,
Freemasons, the churches, organized Jewry, Marxist Jews;
Neo Cons; feminists, foundations; think tanks, and of course
the mass media.
The "truth will set you free" so they suppress it.. That's
why we must honor and support courageous if flawed works
like "Severe Visibility." The only deterrent against
another false flag terrorist attack, possibly leading to
martial law, is for everyone to know the truth about 9-11.
