Tribute to Col. Bob Bowman: Ford/Carter Space Weapons Director, 9/11 Truth Warrior

Many of us already know that Dr. Bob Bowman passed last Thursay, after a long battle with cancer likely caused by Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam. Dr. Bowman was known principally as an important critic of the "Star Wars" program under Ronald Reagan, and more recently, a tireless advocate for 9/11 truth. In his last years, despite failing health, Dr. Bowman toured the country speaking to audiences about 9/11 truth, the Constitution, and the duty of US military officers in these times.

It is vitally important that every American know who this man was, as we enter these turbulent times. US military officers especially should study his words and life, as Bob Bowman was a paragon of duty, honor, and both moral and physical courage. Many members of our military must by now know the truth about 9/11, and yet keep their silence for various reasons. For Bob Bowman, resting on a prestigious career which included high government service was not an option, when he saw his country was, again, in danger. He answered the call immediately, unswervingly, and without a moment's hesitation.

Information on services for Dr. Bob Bowman, Melbourne, FLA, Friday August 30th and Saturday August 31st.

“It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.” - Mark Twain

Bob Bowman, remarkable 10 minute speech on 9/11


Wiki biography.:

Member: US Military Officers for 9/11 Truth

From 2007: Col Bob Bowman "Open Letter To US Military Officers"

"Certainly we are bound to carry out the legal orders of our superiors. But the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) which binds all of us enshrines the Nuremberg Principles which this country established after World War II (which you are too young to remember). One of those Nuremberg Principles says that we in the military have not only the right, but also the DUTY to refuse an illegal order. It was on this basis that we executed Nazi officers who were "only carrying out their orders."

The Constitution which we are sworn to uphold says that treaties entered into by the United States are the "highest law of the land," equivalent to the Constitution itself. Accordingly, we in the military are sworn to uphold treaty law, including the United Nations charter and the Geneva Convention.

Based on the above, I contend that should some civilian order you to initiate a nuclear attack on Iran (for example), you are duty- bound to refuse that order. I might also suggest that you should consider whether the circumstances demand that you arrest whoever gave the order as a war criminal. http://www.thepatriots.us/pg_02_openLetter.html

From Veterans Today obituary...

We just lost a political and military leader whose greatness far surpassed that of all of our post-World War II presidents and generals combined. And many of us in the 9/11 truth and peace movements have lost a friend – a kind and generous man we could completely trust.

Bob Bowman: Orders from the White House. November 16, 2007:

I don’t know what the orders were. You’d think the 9/11 Commission would have wanted to know. Why didn’t they ask Cheney? Why didn’t they ask the young officer that asked him if the orders still stood? You mentioned three possibilities. I think we can rule out the first one (”Shoot them down”). Not only because it didn’t happen, but also because if those were the orders, the young officer wouldn’t have continually asked if they still stood. He would instead have been reporting their success or failure in shooting them down. So the only real possibilities are numbers two and three. But is there really any difference between them? The second implies that Cheney was controlling the approaching craft. The third implies that regardless of who was controlling the craft, Cheney wanted it to hit its target (which from the radar track could have just as easily been the White House or the US Capitol building as the Pentagon). Either way, it would imply some level of Cheney complicity in the attack. (Bob Bowman: Orders from the White House. November 16, 2007)

Col. Bob Bowman: "All roads for 9/11 run past Dick Cheney," calls for his arrest and incarceration...


Dr. Bob Bowman on 9/11:

If they have nothing to hide, why are they hiding everything?

Why are they hiding audiotapes of FAA and NORAD controllers? Why are they hiding videotapes of whatever hit the Pentagon? Why are they hiding the black boxes? Why did they destroy most of the forensic evidence showing that three buildings at the World Trade Center were brought down by thermite demolition charges?

If the thermite residue found on severed steel beams didn’t bring down the towers, what did? (Never before in history did steel skyscrapers fall because of fire, and THREE of them did on the same day … one of which wasn’t even hit by an airplane!)

Why did four hijacked airliners fly around for up to an hour and 45 minutes without being intercepted? Why were normal procedures not followed? (If normal procedures HAD been followed, the aircraft would have been intercepted with 20 minutes to spare, the twin towers would still be standing, and thousands of dead Americans would still be alive.)

If it was massive incompetence, why has no one been fired? … or demoted? … or court martialed? (Instead they were promoted or given the medal of freedom!)

If Osama bin Laden was really suspected, why did our government violate its own “no-fly” order to hurriedly fly the bin Laden family out of the United States before they could be questioned? Why does the “Osama bin Laden” in the “confession” videotape have a nose about an inch shorter than the real Osama bin Laden?

Why have half a dozen of the 19 “hijackers” turned up in other countries … alive and well? Were there really any hijackers at all, and if there were, were they patsies?

Who made millions on short sales of United and American Airlines? Where is the tens of billions of dollars worth of missing gold that was stored in the World Trade Center?

The American people and the families of those who died on 9/11 deserve the truth, and we do not yet have it. The above are but a tiny fraction of the unanswered questions not even raised by those who “investigated” the 9/11 tragedy.

The most unbelievable of all the conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 is the OFFICIAL conspiracy theory told us by our government. The Kean-Hamilton commission report was a whitewash, a cover-up, and a bundle of deception.

If a new investigation identifies those responsible, they should be indicted for treason. And those who covered up the treason should themselves be indicted as accessories after the fact. http://www.bradblog.com/?p=3404

The sentence about disobeying

The sentence about disobeying orders when necessary really moved me...

It is made more difficult by the fact that they have been brainwashed and conditioned to obey their superiors no matter what.

The dilemma reminds me of 'A Few Good Men'.

Honorable respect

Dr. Bowman was among the 1st proponents of 9/11 Truth that I heard when becoming interested in the subject around 2006


At that time the subject was even more taboo, but he had the expertise, wisdom and courage to speak boldly with conviction. He was also a very generous man when meeting him personally.

May there be others of such caliber in these times

Bump for the truth!

Which can set us free. All the damnable actions taken by the PTB to deny us our God-given rights and freedoms recently have been enacted with 9/11 (terrorism) as the 'logic'. This post is vital to the Liberty movement.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

a man to be admired..

the stick in the stew is where are all the family members of all those lost on 9/11............where is their voice.. until that is up front all this is a cartoon....show us the pleas of the famalies/spouses/friends and then the cartoon has life ...where are they ??? if they were active there would be no need for repetitive background info.. if they are not coming forward are they not then patriots ..???

here are some of them, there are others ex. Ellen Mariani

...you are right more need to break their gag order that was part of their settlement...


Release the Sandy Hook video.

come forth

than you for supporting my simple plea for the necessary..those folks who lost must be at the head of the effort..my view about 911 is clouded..the only thing left is ....where are all those folks??? certainly they are not idiots so their absence is a huge obstacle ..

and bookmarked

Some military men will only listen to other military men on

matters of national security and national importance. Col. Bowman is the military man's 9/11 truth advocate. Urge the members of your vet posts to listen to him.

Release the Sandy Hook video.
