Nine Eleven Ten Thirteen, Revisited

Oopsy Daisy!

When rewatching Season Eight of The X-Files, I realized that the DVDs and Netflix don't reproduce the timeline, the world in which these episodes were airing. They don't tell you that following the epochal 'This is Not Happening,' the series was pre-empted for a few weeks by The Lone Gunmen spinoff.

This is no small detail because the brewing storm depicted in 'Happening' --of a new and considerably more dangerous conspiracy within the government using Body Snatcher/Terminator aliens later called "Super Soldiers"-- darkly mirrored the rise of the War Party within the Bush Administration, a real-world conspiracy that the world was blissfully unaware of in early 2001.

So the question is raised: what did Chris Carter and Co. know and when did they know it?

Let's wind back the clock, just for exposition's sake:
"Fans of the short-lived X-Files spinoff series The Lone Gunmen may recall that the pilot episode ended with an eerie foreshadowing of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on New York's World Trade Center. Though the show aired six months before the attack, its final scene featured a commercial airliner aiming at the [World Trade] center, veering away at the last minute, TV Guide Online reported.

But for some reason, the show's images escaped notice in the months following the real-life attacks—something that mystifies one of the show's writers, longtime X-Files producer Frank Spotnitz. It wasn't until the industry newsletter "The Myers Report" ran a story about the show this week that it caught the notice of TV Guide.

"I know! That's what I've been wondering," Spotnitz told TV Guide. He, Vince Gilligan and John Shiban wrote the episode. "I thought, 'Nobody noticed!' I guess so few people saw the show. But it's strange, too, because that was the pilot, and the ratings were actually quite good for [that episode], and yet we didn't hear anything."

Myers Report columnist Ed Martin wrote that "this seems to be collective amnesia of the highest order. The final act of the Gunmen pilot, which seemingly made no impact last year, now contains some of the most deeply disturbing images ever created for an entertainment program," according to TV Guide.

"I woke up on Sept. 11 and saw it on TV, and the first thing I thought of was The Lone Gunmen," Spotnitz told TV Guide. "But then in the weeks and months that followed, almost no one noticed the connection. What's disturbing about it to me is, you think as a fiction writer that if you can imagine this scenario, then the people in power in the government who are there to imagine disaster scenarios can imagine it, too." - Sci Fi Wire (6/21/01)
One thing this article doesn't mention is that Carter's name is also listed in the episode's writing credits and as exec, Carter often made uncredited changes- often major- to episodes written by his three junior execs.

Richard Thomas interviewed Lone Gunmen star Dean Haglund (himself a real-life version of his character, a computer geek and parapolitics researcher) on UFO Mystic and asked him the million-dollar question:
Richard Thomas: What was your reaction after 9/11 and what’s your current opinion on The Lone Gunmen pilot? In your interview with Alex Jones you said the writers would sometimes be approached by people from the CIA, FBI and NASA, was this the case with the pilot?

Dean Haglund: I asked Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) this very question when he was on my podcast and he said that this was a case of an artist tapping into some bizarre collective un-conscience (sic) item, and he said that he read about the idea in a Tom Clancy novel, so there was no direct involvement in this case.

So, the trope of terrorists flying planes into buildings was nothing new --nor, for that matter was the trope of arms dealers and oil barons staging a false flag attack of that nature.

And the film The Medusa Touch- most assuredly a favorite in The X-Files writing room- featured a climatic scene (this time in London), way back in the 1970s.

And despite the protestations of Bush Administration officials, there was no end of warnings that something of that nature was in the works, warnings that were summarily dismissed up and down the chain of command. Warnings that "Al Qaeda" was planning a major attack.

Aside from the massive wealth and power of the Bin Laden family, Osama and the National Security State went back a long way, hooking up in the war on the Soviets in Afghanistan. There's no end of documentation of encounters between these BFFs, or the endless coverups every time some poor schmuck down the chain of command (ie., the guy who though he was being paid to protect his country) sounded the alarm on the doings of these characters, or the growing links between Islamic radicals and our own homegrown mass murderers (John Doe #2, anyone?).

So I can't help but wonder if that Lone Gunmen story wasn't just a wacky coincidence. Carter's outlook darkened considerably in Season Eight after the Mytharc took a more mystical turn in Season Seven. The sharp return to deep paranoia might have been out of step in those innocent, pre-9/11 days- and the even gloomier and more strident mood of the Season Nine Mytharc out of step with a country who didn't want to hear any government conspiracy stories- but in retrospect it all seems rather prescient.

I thought so all along. Here's what I wrote all the back in 2007:
There are times when art becomes reality. The pilot for X-Files spinoff The Lone Gunmen , which eerily predicted a 9/11 scenario, is perhaps one of the most notorious examples of this.

Some theorists have pointed at that episode as proof of government foreknowledge of the attacks, yet if you actually pay attention to the dialog in the episode (included in the clip above), it seems unlikely that someone in the government would sign off on such inflammatory rhetoric.

But given the various contacts that Chris Carter had with people inside the government security apparatus, it's entirely possible that people within certain agencies were feeding Carter certain scenarios from intelligence briefings as story ideas. It's even possible that some factions within the intelligence community were using the show to warn people of what other, more nefarious factions were up to. Stranger things have happened.
I was reminded of all of this with the recent passing of Gore Vidal. An diehard critic of the official story on 9/11, Vidal wrote an essay detailing the endless holes in the narrative, the cozy relationship between US intel and "Al Qaeda", the warnings that went ignored by superiors (warnings from players as varied as Vladimir Putin, Hosni Mubarak and Mossad), all of the rest of it. Of course, Ten Thirteen were there first.

So when the X-Files Mytharc resumed in the last season with the silencing of government whistleblowers, broad-spectrum surveillance, and a ground war in Iraq you can't help but notice that all of this was being done by this new alien threat- the same threat that was introduced to America the week before the notorious Lone Gunmen pilot.

And in a scene that was cut for broadcast from the series finale, the apparent leader of the Supersoldiers reports directly to George W. Bush.

Details are everything.

So given the long list of CIA, FBI and other agents who were shut down by the Bush Administration when they tried to sound the alarm about a major terror event or were cut loose when they began to question the official narrative of 9/11, the War on Iraq and all the rest of it, it's worth taking a deeper look into who was whispering in Chris Carter's ear back in the day.
The show’s first episodes were based on actual unsolved FBI files that delved into paranormal strangeness. Haglund said that FBI agents would visit the set at times, and tell the cast and crew that they didn’t know how close to the truth the show really is. According to Haglund, there was a period of time where Carter had asked the actors not to speak at Science Fiction conventions. Carter said that he didn’t consider the X-Files Science Fiction, but “Science Probability”.

One of the more interesting stories is one that goes back to the inception of The X-Files. As Chris Carter was getting ready to pitch The X-Files, he met a psychic woman at an exclusive Hollywood party. She told him that whatever he was working on would make it big. Of course she was right, and Carter went on to create one of the most popular TV series in history. However, this woman’s strange story doesn’t end there.

According to this psychic woman she was hired by the CIA to go to Hollywood parties and report back to them the nature of her conversations. She said that she had no idea why they had chosen her, but she accepted the mission of course. She would be informed of the parties of the Hollywood elite and when she would show up, sure enough her name would be on the guest list. Afterwards she would be debriefed. Haglund believes that perhaps this was the CIA’s way of keeping up on what was going on in Hollywood.
Carter came into contact with a high-powered group of former FBI and Secret Service agents when he created Millennium. The original Millennium Group was based on The Academy Group, who acted as consultants on violent crime and serial killer cases. Later they'd be recast as mirror of the Syndicate from The X-Files, much to the displeasure of Millennium star Lance Henriksen. Carter:
I haven't had a lot of feedback from from the FBI. I think that, er, they've contacted us about the X-Files which they like very much (unofficially), and I don't know quite how they feel about Millennium, but the Academy Group likes it very much.

The Academy Group came to my attention through the FBI actually, and they suggested that I get in touch with them and they wouldn't return my phone calls for several months, they're a rather mysterious group themselves. So when they finally did I was able to get a meeting with them and sent the pilot for the series and they became very excited about being involved in it.
These contacts were not unusual. In the director's commentary track for 'The Truth', the late Kim Manners recalls a visit from a couple of CIA agents during an early season filming who told everyone that what they were doing wasn't so far from the truth. Typical fratboy gladhandling? Maybe.

But what we see is that is a well-documented history of interest from people from various agencies, active and retired, in what Ten Thirteen were up to. Keeping an eye on a potential subversive force? (X-Files episodes were typically delivered to network within hours of airtime, without giving network time to review them) Sure.

You have people like Michael Scheuer, former director of the CIA's Bin Laden office (which I'm sure was quite busy, given that family's exhaustive business dealings with the Bush Family et al), who are openly critical of American foreign policy. There are more like him, such as Richard Clarke, Sibel Edmonds and David Schippers and so on.

From the very start, Carter made clear that the conspirators of The X-Files were not the government per se, but were secret groups working within agencies towards their own agenda.

You know, actual conspiracies.

As Mulder's Syndicate contact 'Deep Throat' says in 'The Erlenmeyer Flask', "Inside the intelligence community, there are so-called "black organizations. Groups within groups conducting covert activities, unknown at the highest levels of power."

"Who's going to run this story?"

So was the character of Betram Byers, the whistleblower marked for death in the Lone Gunmen pilot, based on one of these people that Carter had through contacts like the Academy Group?

So, let's take a looksee at the dialogue here:
Bertram Byers: "What the hell are you doing? Why can't you stay out of this? Leave me buried?"
Byers: "What is Scenario 12D? We know, it's a war game scenario, that it has to do with airline counter-terrorism. Why is it important enough to kill for?"
Bertram Byers: "Because it's no longer a game."
Byers: "But if, some terrorist group wants to, act out this scenario, why target you for assassination?"
Bertram Byers: "Depends on who your terrorists are."
Byers: "The men who conceived of it in the first place. You're saying our government plans to commit a terrorist act against a domestic air..."
Bertram Byers: "There you go, indicting the entire government as usual. It's a faction, a small faction..."
Byers: "For what possible gain?"
Bertram Byers: "The Cold War's over, John. But with no clear enemy to stockpile against, the arms market's flat. But bring down a fully-loaded 727 into the middle of New York City; you'll find a dozen tin-pot dictators all over the world, just clamouring to take responsibility. And begging to be smart bombed."
Byers: "I can't believe it; this is about increasing arms sales?"
Bertram Byers: "Mm-hmm."
Byers: "When?"
Bertram Byers: "Tonight."
Byers: "How are you going to stop them? Why didn't you tell the world this? Go to the press?"
Bertram Byers: "You think I'd still be drawing breath 30 minutes after I made that call? The press? Who's going to run this story?"
Byers: "We would."
Bertram Byers: "This?" [He picks up one of the newspapers] "This is birdcage liner. Wild-eyed crap right up there with, Elvis is an alien and two-headed babies."
Byers: "You obviously read it."
Bertram Byers: "Don't be so damn naive. You think this is going to save the world?
Wow, "increasing arms sales." Why does that sound so familiar? Why does that sound so god-damned familiar, Mister Jones?

Now, the media narrative from day one was that this was the work of Osama Bin Laden alone, so what possible motive would someone in on the conspiracy have to give the game away on a high-profile TV show? What possible benefit would come of sowing suspicion over a hidden agenda over such a world-shaking event?

None at all. Of course.
The relative value of being able to dismiss the conspiracy theory as "something you saw on The X-Files" is so minimal (given the stakes involved) as to be beyond ludicrous, since the target audience of such a theory are exactly the kinds of people no one takes seriously anyway.

So the always-lame excuse of "Revelation of the Method" really doesn't hold much water. Neither does "predictive programming", since the plot doesn't actually fit the media narrative of 9/11 in terms of perpetrators or outcome, which it would have to if it were to predict anything, right?

A ground war in Iraq, from X-Files episode 9x11

"WHO'S GOING TO RUN THIS STORY?"

Given the amount of official foreknowledge of 9/11, the reported frustration of well-placed and high-ranking officials in getting their superiors to take this seriously, and the well-documented links between elements of the far right (which coincidentally controls the Conspiratainment market), Islamic militancy and power players in the military-industrial complex, I'd say the more probable theory is that 'Bertram Byers' is a stand-in for a individual or group of dissident intelligence agents who wanted to float a working theory (or something more) out there just in case their worst fears came true.

The intelligence community is not a monolith and there are people working within it who are not down with the Globalist agenda (people like Edward Snowden, to name just one). A TV show watched by millions would be the perfect place to sound an alarm and the dialogue certainly fits the bill to a T.

  1. Thanks for letting me know about The Medusa Touch, I'll have to track that down. There's another eerily prophetic work that you may know about, "The Better Angels" by former CIA agent Charles McCarry. Written in 1979, it's set in the 90's and involves a fanatical Arab terrorist hiding in caves who plots to fly nuke-laden jets into Western buildings, a controversial election, political polarization and a fascistic president. If you've never read Charles McCarry, I highly recommend his books. He brings you into a world of Machiavellian power and conspiracy that is absolutely convincing (and prophetic).

  2. You spend a lot of time harping on the far right evangelicals. I don't disagree with your overall assessment of these groups. But the left is just as bad. Both are warmongering and both are in the business of lordship. We need to evolve beyond this system that uses the threat of punishment to accomplish its goals.

    Byers: "The men who conceived of it in the first place. You're saying our government plans to commit a terrorist act against a domestic air..."
    Bertram Byers: "There you go, indicting the entire government as usual. It's a faction, a small faction..."

    Well, according to the dictionary, government, or more specifically, the state, is a terrorist organization.

    terrorism
    noun
    1.
    the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes

    So the bottom line is, we wouldn't have this problem of having to deal with the neocon religious agenda if these groups didn't have access to the most powerful weapon ever invented by mankind. The superstition of authority manifested in the state. Whoever isn't addressing this root issue at this point in history is merely whining and begging their masters for mercy.

  4. Jim, I'm sorry- I'm not interested in discussing Libertarian theology with you. The government is not an autonomous entity, it is a utility for multinational corporate interests. When the government goes to war, it does so on their behalf and their behalf alone.

    It's been that way since the days of the Massachusetts Bay and Virginia Companies, both of which used totalitarian religion to keep the serfs in line.

  5. Lest we forget, there is a weird tie-in to the Columbine tragedy. According to articles in the Denver Post, the Columbine Neo-Nazis (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold) had also planned the hijacking of a jet flight to crash it into a New York City skyscraper, which was misreported by Stephen King to the New York Times as the World Trade Towers. Harris and Klebold wrote about their plot, for over a year, calling their plan a self described "Judgment Day."

  6. I completely missed this when I posted early. This is definitely stuff you will never get those guys at RI to talk about(like I said, they steer all discussion into dead end boxes :CIA, Illuminati, the government.....not what is in the boxes: corrupt individuals inside of larger clusters of corruption cozy with organized crime). And this is inline with the stuff I posted earlier... that basically Carter and his crew were inside of a larger "milieu" in which elements of the 9/11 plot seemed to be circulating. Before you posted this I didn't realize how closely they came in contact with the FBI, CIA and other groups. So I think this post is right on the money in helping to understand how the hijacked planes thing got picked up into the plot. Again, good stuff here you will not find on Alex Jones, RI or similar.It is very interesting to me that the FBI and CIA guys involved seemed to be associating their "mysterious" work they do with UFOs and Aliens rather than the mysteries of organized crime. Again, the agenda here seems to be redirection of people's attention.

    If you look at the "milieu" in which 9/11 was born you will find the drugs/arms trafficking networks which Sibel Edmonds mentioned. Internationally those trafficking routes(mainly drugs) involved Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Germany, and Turkey on their routes west to the U.S.A and Europe. The hijackers also had ties to these places. In the USA, you have trafficking hotspots in New York, Florida, Texas and Oklahoma that played a major role in 9/11 and other attacks. The hijackers had ties here too. These are places where illegal traffic enters the USA(Oklahoma is a hub in the center). Someone protects this trafficking. So another thing you are going to notice is that a lot of the nutty calls for an armed overthrow of the U.S. are coming from those along the periphery of this traffic and involved with interdicting the traffic. Sheriff Arpaio in Arizona, a known drug transit border state, himself former DEA guy in Turkey for example. And today there was a former cop turned judge Tom Head in Texas saying there will be a revolution if Obama is re-elected because he will put UN troops on US soil. Nutty Republicans saying absolutely nutty crap. So I suspect what we are seeing is a campaign by dirty officials endlessly stirring up the American public to redirect attention away from other criminality.. possibly their own.

    9/11 was one of the larger operations in this campaign that allowed the U.S. to distract itself by getting into the middle east where it could then redirect this drug traffic to its own liking(U.S. ally Karzai's brother is a drug kingpin remember?). I suspect thought that 9/11 is not just the work of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld but has its origins in an international Safari Club like organization that the "hit" was outsourced to in a similar way that elements in the CIA seem to have outsourced JFK's hit to some combination of Italian/French Mafia and Anti-Castro Cubans. Or possibly that 9/11 is actually a NATO and European double cross intended to rebalance U.S. power. Wheels within wheels. I am still drawing conclusions I guess.

    I know this is not really a 9/11 blog, but thanks again for these interesting posts!

  7. There is no such thing as large numbers of civilized human beings living outside of the restrictions of a "state." Governments and states are self-organizing entities that evolve when people are tired of watching wild ass angry nutcases run amuck killing each other and destroying civilization. There are only two path ways historically that I know of that civilizations go down... further enlightenment No one is going to peacefully dismantle the U.S. government and balkanize America and wind up in paradise. Look at the Soviet Union as a case example. If the far right succeeds in destroying the U.S. Federal government you will have nothing but years and years of civil war and a lot of dead nutcases that caused it. Period. End of discussion. At the end of it all you will have yet another State and new laws and a new generation of wild ass angry nutcases once again trying to destroy what their own uncivilized actions created. This is not George Washington's revolution against the British. It will go nowhere but over a cliff. The difference? The main one being George Washington wasn't a wild ass angry nutcase.

  8. Myth breaker,
    Regarding your comments re the state:
    Huxley once posited that all systems are tyrannical, I.e., systems and processes of any type will intrinsically oppress at least one set of humans within the system. The quantity and quality of tyranny may be modulated, but not it's ontology.

    Jared diamond supposed that human civilization was actually destroyed by the move from nomadic tribes to settled agricultural societies. Rooted settlement by definition creates an economy of scarcity. Diamond argues powerfully, against every economist left or right,mthat supposedly fundamental immutable economic truths are in fact no such thing. More depressingly he concedes it's just too late to change it.

    Because we are slaves of our own creation, because we have become golems, we are functionally blinkered by assumptions. If your givens are incorrect, your qed is empty. Knowles constantly points out ways beyond this darkness. Thought experiments maybe, guideposts, or breadcrumb trails we ourselves have left behind, strings tied to trees, to remind ourselves again and again that the system itself is not all.

    In math the rules of the set eist within the set but then meta sets bring new rules, and I think this post does a great job exploring the meta information we too often ignore in our slow churn through the system itself.

    It profits none of us to suggest we cannot live humanely and ethcally without tyrannical systemic pressure. I am a christian but sympathize with the humanist argument tat our ethics and behavior o not come from without. Hell is existence without free will and the ability to detect right from wrong, no matter your external circumstances.

    As to nine eleven, the system was hard at work, it's peristalsis and dream imagery persistent through our lives and bodies well before it happened.

  12. Chris,

    Re: Increasing arms sales - I seem to recall a very early storyline in the original Superman where he joins the army incognito to root out a plot to perpetuate a war by multinational industrialists so as to increase the sale of munitions. Alas, some things never change.

    I recalled the Lone Gunmen pilot son after 9/11, and remain in wonder that so few remember it, and those that do or learn of it later see it as a curio, nothing more. This, from a crowd ready to accept much that came from the X-Files as gospel, even the more fantastic stories. The connection remains tenuous, even for me, yet it is there and should not be ignored lest the missing string alter the harp's tune.

  13. Claire, most systems are indeed tyrannical. Why are they tyrannical? Because millions of people support the tyrannical system and keep it propped up. And this is exactly why people will never be able to live peacefully outside of a state. Western Democracies are thought to be the pinnacle of the experiment of self-rule. And yet, millions of Americans allow themselves to be lied to, robbed and sent off to war by a tiny minority. The rightwing nutters know there is a problem with the government. We all do. The problem is that their solutions to the problem involve either destroying the government or waiting for Jesus to come back and fix everything. Neither of which will work. In a more perfect America, Americans would have demanded Bush and Cheney were impeached for high crimes and theft. Americans didn't do that. In fact, they voted them back in office. So unfortunately true unfettered Democracy doesn't really work when half of the people living in it have their heads jammed up their asses. Now you may think I am being a downer on democracy. I am not. I am being a realist. No one wants to be a Nomad and chase their food around the planet bumping into hostile neighbors as they go in order to escape the restrictions of the state. But the system of government that the USA has is about as good as it can get. You are mostly free to do whatever you want if you have the money and as long as it doesn't involve hurting others. The problem is no one has any money. Why? Because it is all in the hands of the 1%...and rightwing nutters keep voting to give them more.

    If the U.S. federal government were to be dismantled... the country balkanized... Other countries would simply move in and take over. Whoever has the best weapons and technology, the biggest army, the most organized would run over everyone else. And this is not going to be far right nutters. And so the far right nutters would be whining and complaining the Chinese state government take over.

    The government needs to be fixed. Not removed. If people really wanted to turn things around they would demand that the rats behind 9/11 be exposed and removed from positions of power. The reason the U.S.A. is in such sorry states is because of an ongoing series of foreign wars, thefts and other illegal activity mostly from a secret cabal of FAR RIGHT bastards doing dirty tricks. The day the American people decide to finally get to business and go after them, is the day things start to get better.

    As for truth tellers fighting the good fight? I say this. You are not alone... others are not far behind. So try not to get too far ahead of the pack in your truth telling. Try to let everyone else catch up(wake up).

    Ironic how the Lone gunmen "pilot" centers on a murder plot that hinges on the lack of one.

    Um not necessarily. Sorry, but the idea that rogue intelligence agents are feeding Chris Carter secret information about government conspiracies is something that only happens on The X-Files. It's a great show, don't get me wrong-- but you shouldn't confuse it with reality.
