"9/11 truth is an issue of patriotism, freedom, truth, peace, democracy, and most of all, justice."
The worldwide grassroots campaign to launch a new international investigation into the events of September 11, 2001, is the least divisive cause in the world. The 9/11 truth movement is not a political movement, nor is it a collection of closed-minded ideologues, but a rational and peaceful response to the irrational and criminal war on terror which is based on complete lies and myths.
9/11 truth is an issue of patriotism, freedom, truth, peace, democracy, and most of all, justice. It should attract the world's attention as the most important issue of our age, but it is marginalized as a movement that is based not on facts but disinformation and paranoia, however, this line of thinking is wrong, and what's more, it is reflective of deep-seated prejudices held by many people.
There were ready-made explanations that clarified the 9/11 events for people across the political spectrum. Conservatives and Republicans bought the official story that Muslim terrorists hated America because of its freedoms. And the popular school of thought that states that 9/11 happened as a result of blowback was embraced by liberals and libertarians alike. Believers of this theory point out frequently that Arab radicals in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and other countries in the Muslim world had the motive to attack the United States, but motive isn't everything in a crime. The question that should be asked is who had the means? Who was able to shut down America's air defense system at the time of the attacks? Who was able to rig Building 7 with explosives so that it could collapse onto its own footprint without getting hit by a plane? Who was able to confiscate videotapes that recorded the attack on the Pentagon? Who was able to persecute, censor, and delegitimize dissenting views? Clearly, the finger must point towards the Bush administration, and the devilish tricksters who control the United States government.
Such a conclusion should not be earth-shattering. The nature of U.S. foreign policy and America's single-minded pursuit of global hegemony was made evident near the end of World War II when the U.S. government dropped two atom bombs on two Japanese cities. The message was sent to the Soviet Union and the whole world that America doesn't play around. It means business. And it makes no secret of it.
Anybody who stared the facts in the face during the Vietnam era, the Reagan era, and up to the last years of the 20th century knew that the U.S. government was not a democratic state but a terrorist state that built its global status not by the force of democratic persuasion but autocratic force - by military invasions, economic exploitation, and CIA overthrows of democratically elected leaders. The controllers of the U.S. government are not motivated to do good, or to protect the American people, or to defend freedom against the forces of terrorism, but to increase their ill-gotten power, and control.
This shouldn't be surprising to anyone who knows their history. Geopolitics is not a new game. The Bush administration wanted to expand America's influence in a strategic area of the Middle East, and the only way they could justify such a policy to the American people was by deliberately attacking America on 9/11 and blaming it on Arab terrorists with connections to Afghanistan, and that part of the world. Thus, a policy of hegemony was presented as a policy of counter-terrorism to the American and global public. As it turns out, self-inflicted wounds pay dividends for the masters of war, and rulers of nations.
The task of grappling with the true nature of the 9/11 attacks, and its consequences for democracy, justice, peace, and freedom, is one that journalists in the mainstream press, if there are any left, must attend to now rather than later. Time is of the essence. Journalists have wasted too many hours filling pages with government lies and propaganda that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. Denial of the truth is not a coping mechanism, it is a disease. Rationalizing and ridiculing the truth doesn't make it go away. The reality that 9/11 was an inside job must be accepted, or else America will not survive as a nation, and the criminal occupations in the Middle East will continue indefinitely.
