CIA Pilot Swears Oath: Planes Did Not Bring Towers Down On 9/11

If they cannot or do not rebut the theory, the US Government will by omission be allowing that the official account provided by the 9/11 Commission is not the truth.

Planes did not hit the twin towers on 9/11, says Ex-CIA pilot under oath

Former CIA officer and commercial jet pilot John Lear has sworn an affidavit saying that the Twin Towers were not bought to the ground by planes crashing into them on 9/11.

In Lear’s expert opinion the official claim that two planes crashed into the towers is actually “physically impossible.”

With reports from the Kremlin this week that President Putin is ready to release satellite images proving that the Twin Towers were destroyed by “controlled demolition” rather than by the force of two planes, enormous strides towards disproving the official 9/11 Commission version are taking place.

An affidavit is serious business in law. Unlike any other form of statement, an affidavit becomes “truth in law” if it is not rebutted. It is now up to the opponents of John Lear’s theory to present evidence and attempt to disprove his statement point by point.

If they cannot or do not rebut the theory, the US Government will by omission be allowing that the official account provided by the 9/11 Commission is not the truth.

And believe me, John Lear’s statement makes a very strong case. He is not just a simple pilot throwing his opinion around. He is as close as you can come to being American intelligence and aerospace aristocracy.

The grandson of Learjet founder Bill Lear, John himself is a retired airline captain and former CIA pilot who has flown over 100 different types of plane during 40 years of active flying. He holds more FAA airman certificates than any other FAA certified pilot. He has flown covert CIA missions in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Ex-CIA Pilot John Lear says that flying a plane into the Twin Towers is "physically impossible"

John Lear, a retired airline captain and former CIA pilot with over 19,000 hours of flight time, has sworn an affidavit stating that no planes flew into the Twin Towers as it would have been “physically impossible”.

Basically, you don’t want to argue with John Lear about flying and planes. You don’t want to argue with him about planes flying into tall buildings and bringing them to the ground. Here is what he has to say in his sworn affidavit about the planes that supposedly bought down the Twin Towers:

No Boeing 767 airliners hit the Twin Towers as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors. Such crashes did not occur because they are physically impossible as depicted, for the following reasons:

In the case of UAL 175 going into the south tower, a real Boeing 767 would have begun ‘telescoping’ when the nose hit the 14 inch steel columns which are 39 inches on center.

The vertical and horizontal tail would have instantaneously separated from the aircraft, hit the steel box columns and fallen to the ground. The engines when impacting the steel columns would have maintained their general shape and either fallen to the ground or been recovered in the debris of the collapsed building.

No Boeing 767 could attain a speed of 540 mph at 1000 feet above sea level ‘parasite drag doubles with velocity’ and ‘parasite power’ cubes with velocity. The fan portion of the engine is not designed to accept the volume of dense air at that altitude and speed.

The piece of alleged external fuselage containing 3 or 4 window cutouts is inconsistent with an airplane that hit 14 inch steel box columns, placed at over 500 mph. It would have crumpled.

No significant part of the Boeing 767 or engine could have penetrated the 14 inch steel columns and 37 feet beyond the massive core of the tower without part of it falling to the ground.

The debris of the collapse should have contained massive sections of the Boeing 767, including 3 engine cores weighing approximately 9000 pounds apiece which could not have been hidden. Yet there is no evidence of any of these massive structural components from either 767 at the WTC.

Such complete disappearance of 767s is impossible.

It takes a highly skilled pilot to interpret the “EFIS” (Electronic Flight Instrument Display) display, with which none of the hijacker pilots would have been familiar or received training on, and use his controls, including the ailerons, rudder, flaperons, elevators, spoilers and throttles to effect, control and maintain a descent.

    Those involved by association would be wise to separate themselves and whislteblow on those responsible. 3k murdered victims is a LOT of jailtime

  • Mauricio Massa

    Dimitri Khalezov explains 95% of 911.

  • city zen

    First of all, anyone who was in manhattan that day knows this is nonsense. Could there have been a conspiracy? Sure. Could demolition have been involved? Sure. But no planes? No, you are an idiot. There were planes. We all saw, heard and felt them.

    Second, an affadvit being “truth in law” doesnt mean the CLAIMS it contains are true. It means it is assumed true that the person did indeed swear out the statements in it, and it means any thing they claim FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE of, is assumed true if not rebutted.

    It doesnt mean that if someone claims in an affadvit “the moon is made of cheese” and no one takes the time to disprove that, then the moon is legally considered to be made of cheese. Lear makes claims in an affadavit of which he has no direct knowledge. He isnt saying “I blew up the towers” or “I created the CGI to fool everyone”. He is saying “i’m an expert and here’s what I think”

    So we can presume he really does believe this, but his claims have no force or truth in law just because he swore them out.

    For pete’s sake, before you write about law, talk to a lawyer!

    • Big Dan

      Lear has about 10 specific points in the article that can’t be true, and you haven’t disputed one of them…such as the “telescoping”.

      • ifreemantoo

        Why not share those 10 points with substance instead of saying “just because”. Why is “telescoping” not true?

        For instance if you follow the logic behind Lear’s claims about the planes and buildings 1 and 2, then Lear’s similar claim about building 7 and the plane in Penn seem illogical. In my mind this puts a big hole in his theories about 3D/CGI planes.

        If 10 should be disputed what shouldn’t be disputed?

        • 69troyjan

          The pentagon was hit by a missile, even Bill Clinton screwed up and said it was bombed ! Hence no video tape.

      • D Thomas

        I will dispute all of them. He’s a living pilot, therefor he has crashed 0 planes into buildings, therefor he has no experience in this.
        As to the telescoping. The plane didn’t hit a solid wall of steel, at that momentum the steel beams in the building probably cut through the softer aluminium of the plane. Kinda the same was a potato doesn’t telescope when you put it through a French fry cutter.

    • ifreemantoo

      “First of all, anyone who was in manhattan that day knows this is nonsense.” You must be a newbie to the questions about 9/11. Plenty of people video recorded in 9/11 and after 9/11 that disagree with the status-quo.

      The one who signs and affidavit is saying the claims are true. If you’re outright lying that can cause you a lot of problems. You left that out. I know I’ve use a few of them all successfully and I’m not a legal thief lawyer.

      Let’s say that a bank sends you a legal notice that you owe money where you don’t. Let’s say it was a stolen credit card. You don’t respond for whatever reason to the legal notice or affidavit making same claim you owe, well you’ve got a big problem on your hand and at least for awhile the moon my be made out of cheese. Most affidavits sit in a file somewhere to do something later or nothing at all; can prevent legal mischief avoid courts and legal proceedings. I know.

      Are all of Lear’s claims lacking direct knowledge? Direct knowledge of what? How pilots are trained; how commercial planes fly?

      Likewise real experts like Architects & Engineers for 9/11- are making a case for reopening and have a real investigation about 9/11 and that affidavit could later turn into real testimony.

      Over killing the affidavit trying to dismiss much substance and merit. Now isn’t there some sort of legalese saying that an error in one part of a contract doesn’t dismiss the whole. How does the nose of a plane appear to go through a building where there is no hole in the building? I’m not sayin’ I’m buying into CGI 3D planes, but that sure puts up an interesting question of ‘how”…

      Oh excuse me you were making the fact of the affidavit as having more substance than the expert pilots experience and knowledge. I guess you must be a legal thief expert and can only comment on your expertise.

      Lawyers are the problem.

      • city zen

        As I said, we can assume he isnt lying, ie, he believes his claims are true. They are still just claims. Just because he swore them out doesnt make them any more credible.

      • city zen

        and, no, no one who was in manhattan that day thinks there were no planes. No one who wasnt high on crack, anyway.

      • DRLJR

        I happen to be one of the people who saw the 2nd plane go in.

        And I had to avoid falling debris as well – both from the building and the plane.

        • Richard

          that falling debris.. it was real right? Let me ask you a hypothetical question… when the bulding came down?… where did all the debris go? There should have been thousands and thousands of pounds of debris and massive mounds of building materials and structural steel… did it disappear? What I know that I saw is that there was pulverized dust…almost as if it was blown to smitherenes… that’s right blown I said… not flown… where did the mass of materials go? I guess you are going to say you were there, you saw it, it was all there. Makes sense.

          • DRLJR

            A lot was blasted out into the surrounding area as dust and debris. I and a person I was with came close to getting hit by a piece of metal that was at something like 10 feet long and around 2 feet in basic diameter. It just missed an ambulance in the intersection by building 4. A lot fell down into the plaza area. It is a massively deep hole. The floors in the towers were open space. They were not built like the Empire State Building or the the other skyscrapers.

    • 69troyjan

      Those planes you saw were hologram technology, every word Lear said was absolutely True !

      • city zen

        You werent there. I was.

        • Rich Webb

          where are the remains of the plane if they can find passports they can find engines

        • Richard

          All four black boxes were allegedly never found! Let’s see, no plane remains found… or passenger … stuff… passports of course of highjackers FOUND! iT’S a fricken miracle!!!

      • Julie

        So where are the missing people on those planes that definitely took off that morning?

    • Tom Minkler

      Thank you city zen

    • BrotherRog

      It is possible that planes hit those buildings, but not the specific commercial aircraft that are said to have been the planes to hit those towers. With this scenario, the commercial planes were perhaps flown into the ocean, and some other planes, packed with explosives, hit the towers.

  • Tom Kwiatkowski

    I knew this was immediately BS when I saw the jailhouse lawyer postulation that “An affidavit is serious business in law. Unlike any other form of statement, an affidavit becomes “truth in law” if it is not rebutted. ” An affidavit has no chance of even such effect until it is introduced into an actual legal proceeding, and it must first conform to the rules of evidence before it is even admissible, e.g. if it is adjudged hearsay, it would not be admissible, or if it is asserting an expert opinion, it must first lay a foundation that it meets the standards of admissibility for expert testimony as to the particular subject. Affidavits on the core issues are rarely admitted in deference to the American and English rules that testimony be provided in person and subject to cross examination. Blathering this type of unfounded conspiracy crap about 9-11 is treasonous, as far as I’m concerned.

    • ifreemantoo

      I’m just curious because I’m not a legal thief, but couldn’t an “unrebutted” affidavit of truth be used to effect satisfaction and in fact avoid courts settlements or formal legal proceedings?

      Well it worked for me anyway against AT&T. AT&T said I owed. In Affidavit of Truth I said I didn’t because of XYZ facts. They didn’t respond. Tried to collect. I pointed out there was no response or challenge to my affidavit. They left me alone. Did the same thing with a credit card company, except they had some some legal thief lawyer office…the results were still the same and they left me alone.

      There are all different kinds of Affidavits (mechanics, builders…) as you should well know (being the expert legal thief yourself) that sit in a file somewhere to be later pulled out for legal proceeding, to avoid them or the paper just turns yellow. But if unrebutted after being served formal notice of affidavit will be pretty hard to overcome if challenged later.

      Now I won’t argue that the “jailhouse lawyer” overstated his position, but not anymore so than you blathered and overstated in your legal thief argument. And what if “it” does conform and not adjudged hearsay? No matter the man is saying what he says is true signed his name to it and had a notary verify his signature.

      You’re an intellectual bully. You prey upon the ignorance of people knowing that unless you’re a lawyer or like myself having used one you can tell just enough truth to cover up a big lie. Of course in your mind “I didn’t nothing illegal.”

      John Lear has some credibility as he was a professional commercial air pilot and CIA pilot. You “blathered” and over killed on the affidavit, but offer no expert opinion as to his claims made. Tom how do your flying credentials or expertise in flying offer a challenge to John Lear’s position?

      Now me I’m no expert on falling buildings. I won’t express an opinion on the Twin Towers but bldg 7 sure looks like a professional job compared to others I’ve seen. Likewise real experts like Architects & Engineers for 9/11- seem to present logical and scientific challenges to the status-quo report.

      Let’s forget about buildings and planes for a moment. Now if president GWB was pressured for over a year to form the 9/11 Commission by the Jersey Girls; after finally doing so appoints Henry Kissinger as the first head; but Henry after being confronted by the Jersey Girls resigns because Henry has a business relationship with Bin Laden; and when the 9/11 Commission attempts to get testimony from Bush and Cheney, it was not done sounder oath or separated from each other and…

      Well I bet you think that was all legal and no cause for concern or an attempted cover up of something regarding 9/11. Of course arguing the merits of oranges when were talkin’ apples or gummin’ up the truth with legalized mischief – well from your point of view is no cause for concern.

      Now actually i did see the video. So if you want to build upon one of Lear’s theories as not be consistent or logical it would be something he said about building 7 and the plane that crashed in Penn. But you’re the high priced legal thief, so I’m sure you caught it unless that is you have a closed mind or an agenda that makes you go overboard on blathering insignificant arguments about affidavits.

      • Tom Kwiatkowski

        I was going to engage in a conversation with you, even with one “legal thief” reference taken as humorous, but your repeated attacks make it clear that’s not what you’re interested in. I am no longer practicing law, and have a lot of issues where lawyers have taken this country, but I’m not going to pander to you on that, you’re not worth it. You may consider me a legal thief and intellectual bully for pointing out how conspiracists play and prey upon the public, but you have the Lilliputian attitude of “oh woe is me the victim against the big bad [fill in the blank]. You’re just not worth it talking to, beyond my having gotten this off my chest.

        • N. Gladstein

          Lilliputian – For the win! 🙂

        • Karen Glammeyer Medcoff

          in other words, you cannot refute it

          • Tom Kwiatkowski

            The burden of proof is on the one making the assertion that this happened. I do not have to prove a negative, that it didn’t happen. And I have refuted the credibility of the article. Affidavits, as explained, don’t do that. I’ll leave it to you to continue to believe in such garbage with your credulous mind.

  • Steve Walker

    Another idiot who has got some credence because of what his father did or who his father was.
    I suppose that 6m jews didnt die in the holocaust or thousands werent butchered in Rwanda in the 1990’s and man hasnt walked on the surface of the moon either and of course there is no such thing as Isis that is just USA propoganda.In fact I dont think your dad even flew a plane that is just propoganda
    GEt a life idiot and realise that the complete tosser here is YOU. Just becasue your dad did something doenst make yo an expert adn all this crap about affadavits ets is what it says CRAP

      I was watching the so called “live newscast” I can’t remember what station it was, but when the towers went down, the news reporter jumped the gun and said OMG the 2nd tower just fell. even though it was still standing in her “live” feed

        I would suggest that most of the people commenting that “of course 767s hit the WTC – have no understanding of the subtleties of grammar – When saying that “no planes hit the WTC” means what LOOKED like planes hit the WTC NOT real planes.

  • smitty888

    This is silly to the point of being childish, appealing only to the ignorant and/or dimwitted. The surveillance cameras are not high speed enough to show detail of an object closing in at 500+ mph and there are more than ample detailed photographs of the aircraft debris and doened light poles around to debunk the nonsense. There is PLENTY of such footage. And where do you suppose ‘they’ hid all of the airplanes and all of those people? heh heh

    • AnotherLover

      The plane didn’t knock over any light poles. The people that watched,
      cowering in fear, as the plane flew directly over their heads tell you in “National
      Security Alert” exactly where the plane was — and where it was not. ALL of some dozen witnesses interviewed in the film put the plane in the exact same location, on the exact same flight path. It was
      nowhere near the light poles. The plane didn’t knock over the light poles —
      something else did.

      The plane is said to have knocked one light
      pole right into Lloyd England’s moving taxi cab! Amazing. Watch
      “National Security Alert” to get Lloyd’s take on the situation. Be sure to watch the final Lloyd England clip near the end of the film.

      highlight from “National Security Alert” is the interview with the Pentagon police officer
      who ran outside directly after the explosion — and watched the
      airplane fly away.

      The light poles tell the story. The plane was
      on the other side of a major thoroughfare — far away from the
      light poles and far away from England’s cab. You really gotta
      watch that doco — here’s a link:

      England’s final account of the day is spine-chilling (he was apparently unaware he was being recorded).

      The light poles tell the story. It was all a set-up. It had to be a set-up because someone had to make up the light pole story, someone knocked the light poles over, and someone hired Lloyd England to tell the tale. He tells it in the doco — with some unscripted ad-libbing caught candid-camera-style.

      Enjoy the show.

  • Ryan Mann

    So if two planes didn’t hit the buildings, what happened to the two planes and all those passengers, because two planes did indeed disappear, and 1 plane did indeed crash in PA.

    No one can say what the planes did when they hit the building for sure….

    Like I’ve said before, test it.

    Someone with billions of Dollars, build two new world trade centers just like the ones in 2001 in the middle of the Mohave 100’s of miles from any people, and then crash two identical planes into them and see what happens.

  • Josephine Harkay

    Osama bin Laden accepted responsibility for the attack of 9/11. He himself was surprised that the towers collapsed, but they were not built to withstand the impact of a huge aircraft. And what a coincidence that Putin’s satellite moved over New York City exactly at the time of the incident and saw the “truth!” Well, anyway, pilot John Lear got his 15 minutes of fame.

    • AnotherLover

      Osama bin Laden denied responsibility for 911. The blurry video confessions that came out later don’t even have the same actors in all of them.

      The towers actually were designed to withstand the impact of a huge aircraft. The designers were quite proud of the fact that the buildings could survive such an impact.

      The best 911 film is “National Security Alert.” These guys travelled to Arlington and interviewed many of the people that saw the plane flying towards the Pentagon that day, and they all agree on the path the plane took. And that path was nowhere near the downed light poles. That path was nowhere near Lloyd England’s cab. They interviewed him, too — Lloyd England. Watch him tell it. Especially watch the parts he’s not aware are being filmed (near the end of the film).

      Hope you’re not too happy believing the myth of 911. This documentary dispels it:
      National Security Alert

  • Julie

    Okay so where are the people on those planes and how did we think we saw 2 planes crashing into the towers?

    You can’t make this crap up! Is funded by George Soros? Anyone who believes this had to have to school to be this stupid!

  • BrotherRog

    why didn’t he speak out earlier?

  • BrotherRog

    on a related note, what was it that hit the Pentagon?


    It is also important for people to learn how the Twin Towers were built. They were not built like the Empire State Building or the other skyscrapers where beams were 100 feet or so. The floors of the Twin Towers were massive open space. There was a old special, from the 1973 time frame I believe, that went over the construction of the towers. It was the open floor space that made the WTC valuable real estate. Also, learn about blast furnaces and things about the towers will make sense as well.

  • Josephine Harkay

    “A real Boeing 767 would have been ‘telescoping’ when the nose hit etc.,” however, images show that the plane sliced through the South Tower and disappeared inside of it; it may have carried even extra explosives on board. E.g. the Titanic was supposed to be unsinkable; theory and practice are always two different things.

  • angelicvh

    If you were there watching it and saw the planes bring it down City Zen, I won’t refute, but too many people are saying there is more. Not only that but in 1945 a B-25 hit the empire State Building, though there was a lot of damage, 14 people I think were killed, the building stayed up. Not only that but some of the floors were opened for business. How did building 7 fall down? It came down like a demo….

  • Haardcase

    An appeal to authority. He may be a pilot, but if he’s not a structural engineer, his authority isn’t worth a hill of beans.

    And swearing an affidavit doesn’t put the onus on the government to respond. It just means that what he said is true *to the best of his knowledge*. That and a dollar will get you a cup of coffee.

  • Tony Harrod

    First of all,even if the planes didn’t really hit the towers,why did the third building disintegrate? nothing hit it…the building that was once home to ENRON ,and Black Water Security…? as far as the planes…has anyone heard of 3D technology?..and the Pentagon wasn’t hit by a plane..because no wreckage was found…ig it was hot enough to burn the plane,why is the building still standing ?….9/11 was an inside job and Cheney was president for an you in a digital age? What was accompliced in that time…..peace

  • Bruce_in_San_Jose

    BS! Dozens of individuals took videos of the impacts that day. Tens of thousands saw the impacts. Another twit looking for his 15 minutes of fame. Oh, the real scandal is that the Saudi family being helped out to the country by US government officials within hours of the attack, and now the data of their involvement is leaking out!
