The “Truck” and the “Driver”.

Monday, April 30th, 2007

At the center of the 4/29 conspiracy is the “gas truck” and “driver” supposedly responsible for this tragedy. This report (sfgate.com) raises more questions than it answers as it paints the official story of “James Mosqueda”, a repeat felon who would be an easy target for pressure from law enforcement or other agencies. Those agents for some reason allowed “a person with a criminal background to drive a truck carrying more than 8,000 gallons of gasoline through a densely populated area.” “To get [his hazardous materials endorsement] he had to undergo an FBI criminal history check and an intelligence background check“, checks which would have detected his criminal history unless they had reasons to ignore them.

In a page seemingly pulled from a cheap Hollywood thriller the driver somehow jumped free from the crash and escaped the fireball. When confronted with the impossibility of his escape, the driver “kind of blacked out and the next thing he knew he was running away.” Are we to believe that the driver ran away from the blaze while unconscious? Mosqueda family friend Rev. Oliver Escalante claims that “If he walked away, it’s only because the Lord was with him”, which also strains the limits of credibility. If the Lord was with him, wouldn’t he have avoided the crash altogether?

Meanwhile Oakland firefighters … arrived with two engines at 3:55 a.m., just 14 minutes after the collision…. almost as if their response had been planned. They worked quickly to seal off the area from all civilians, then claimed that the entire freightliner had been conveniently vaporized and “No sign of the truck remains at the scene.” Not that this crash resembles any previous ordinary “truck crash”. This isn’t the first time there has been an attack on the Bay Bridge 580/880 interchange. “On Feb. 5, 1995, a tanker loaded with liquefied gas crashed and burned on the MacArthur Maze.” County officials knew for 12 years that such an accident was possible, and yet for some reason they did nothing to stop it.

It’s almost your perfect tabletop exercise — real pristine, clean, and nobody got hurt,” CHP Officer Mike Wright said. If you believe the official explanation, of course.

More Questions about 4/29

Monday, April 30th, 2007

Here’s more reasons to be suspicious of the “official story” about the 4/29 freeway crash.

  • The “crash” occured at 3:45 a.m. — when, suspiciously, there are no witnesses.
  • The truck’s driver was a 51-year-old man who conveniently doesn’t remember the crash at all.
  • The crash occurred in one of the most liberal locations in America — at the highway connecting Berkeley to San Francisco.

There are also holes in the official timeline. On 9/11, after being rammed by airplanes, each of the two towers remained standing for nearly an hour before collapsing. Yet we’re asked to believe that within ten minutes — and with Bay Area firefighters already on the scene — the highway had begun collapsing?

And the highway didn’t finish collapsing until a full 17 minutes after the fire started. What exactly happened during those 17 minutes?
