Lauro Chavez Clarifies
Points For His Critics
Prisonplanet | September 26 2006
Lauro Chavez sent us an email today
clarifying some issues that have been raised since he appeared on the
Alex Jones show on Monday:
CENTCOM Sergeant Details Traitorous Stand Down Orders On 9/11
Claim: USCENTCOM Sergeant Blows Whistle On 9/11 Inside Job
Nila Sagadevan spoke to me early today and
asked if I could lay to rest some false claims being made against me.
He asked if I bullet-ize them, if you’d post them on your site
– under my article I presume. I’m not sure, but just contact
him if you have any questions. Thanks a lot Kevin, and tell Alex that
it was a pleasure to be on his show again. Let me know if I can be of
any further help.
Things people are questioning:
My letter was in no way intended to be my “Whistle
- First let me start with telling everyone, that this letter, was a
rant to the chief editor of the Cincinnati Post, Mr. Robert White. I
sent it to him, after reading an article posted there called “1
in 3 believes in 911 conspiracy”. To which they proceed to debunk
us good American people who know for a fact something about 911 does
not add up. Mr. White never responded to my email. Again, it was a rant
that included both fact from my time in the Army, facts I have learned
from my extensive research on this topic, and my opinions. I’ve
been asked to sign an affidavit, and I will, once I review it with my
My DD214 – not signed on block 22
- Honestly I don’t have an answer for this, but there are many
different versions of the 214 – and if you google image search
for that, you’ll see what I mean. Secondly, I think that his typed
signature was considered “signed”. It is my official 214.
Couldn’t find records of him ever being at
- Easy – the issue here is that the military will not release
personnel information without federal authority. Even then it’s
difficult to get. So, I would expect you couldn’t find any military
public records on me. If you do, let me know so I can sue them.
Stating that the SCIF was an underground bunker
- I used the best dumbed down terms I could to describe this to Mr.
White. So, I said “basically an underground bunker”. Read
carefully people, the word “basically” is there. The SCIF,
the main SCIF at CENTCOM is not underground. It is just lower than ground
level and is fortified. You also have to have had a TopSecret clearance
to get access.
Not having an Afghan Service Ribbon listed on my
214 – NOTE: I don’t have a Combat action Badge either.
- Reason for this, is that upon my return from Afghanistan , I opted
for a chapter 13 discharge. Which is an early release from service for
higher education. It states that a person with an acceptance letter
from an accredited university can be released from active duty up to
6 months prior than the original ETS (End Term of Service). So, I gave
up the medals for an early release from the service. I’m entitled
to them, and if I wanted them, all I have to do is send a letter to
the Army Personnel office to update my 214 and send me the medals. Honestly
I don’t care – it’s just a piece of plastic.
How did I know Cheney was in charge of NORAD, prior
to it becoming public?
- Easy, in the Army and whole of the DoD there is a thing called chain
of command. Every solider is supposed to be aware of who his superiors
are. When Cheney was announced to be taking over NORAD, the CoC was
updated and passed out to all of us. This, I’m sure, was prior
to the public release of this information. There were many military
friends of mine, at the time, that questioned this action.
Why don’t I remember the names of the Air
Force liaison that verbally confirmed there was an order to stand down
on the scrambling of jets to intercept the hijacked planes?
- Well, it’s been like over 5 years, I don’t remember everyone
– do you remember who you went to high school with? Heck, I have
a hard time remembering names of people when I meet them. There were
over 2,500 military personnel at CENTCOM during my time there. We were
given verbal confirmation by this Colonel, that NORAD received stand-down
orders. Meaning, planes were to stand-down on intercepting the hijacked
planes. At the time, I think we were just glad we had an answer at all.
Usually, you don’t get much information, just someone shrugging
How is it that a “mere” sergeant can
associate with these high ranking people.
- I love this one ;o) Well, CENTOM “is a place to send old colonels
to die” as they say. It’s a very lush, comfy, command for
people to play out the rest of their time before they get to retire.
Lots and lots of generals, colonels, admirals, etc are stationed at
CENTCOM. That place was crawling with rank – I was one of only
6 sergeants in the whole command. Yes, we had some higher enlisted people,
SFC, SSG, Chiefs, and Master Chiefs, but E5 and below were few and far
between. To get stationed at CENTCOM was a privilege in the Army –
that was like one of the best places to get sent. An Air Force Base
in Florida , on the coast, are you kidding me – who wouldn’t
want to go there. The on base housing is right on the beach. I had to
re-enlist to get that assignment. I came from FT Hood Texas , which
was my prior duty station. I re-enlisted to get MacDill.
Where was the letter posted in the Cincinnati Post?
- Well, it was never posted to my knowledge. I sent Mr. White that letter
and he never sent me a thank you, and F-You, or anything. I never got
a response at all. So, to my knowledge it’s not posted. I bet
he wished he posted it now.
USCENTCOM only participates in exercises
in the Middle East .
- This is simply not true. Their main focus is undoubtedly the Middle
East , however, they support conus (Country Side) exercises all the
time. Honestly, again this comes back to the amount of people at the
command. There were many people who had never even been in the SCIF
– there are tons of people who stay in their office and never
leave except to go to the restroom or leave for the day. Just because
someone says that, means they didn’t know what all the different
directorates did. CENTCOM has many departments, from Psychological Operations,
Military Intelligence, including Linguists, and many, many Liaisons
to other DoD Commands.
