9.11 - What did the U.S. know, and when did it know it?
There is an old Persian proverb: "If you do not like the image in the mirror, do not break the mirror, break your face." It is time to pull our collective head out of the sand, take a hard look in the mirror, and then act.
Did elements of the US government have prior knowledge of, or actively participate in, the 9.11 attacks? If so, to what degree? These are questions worthy of serious investigation. Start researching "what really happened" on 9.11, and you'll find a large body of facts and questions suggesting that the story we have been told by the government and corporate media is in large part a fabrication.
This feature compiles and presents many of these suppositions and counter-evidence. Its purpose is not to draw conclusions, but to investigate the questions that are conspicuously absent in the post-September 11th media -- including, notably, the "progressive" media, both moderate and radical. The leftist intelligentsia, including people who are highly respected, and deservedly so, such as Chomsky, Zinn, Parenti, and publications such as The Nation, Zmag, The Progressive, Mother Jones and others have all avoided any inquiry into the collected evidence. In some cases, have gone so far as to actively marginalize such inquiry. [ Read more | Congresswoman Demands Inquiry ]
In part because of the remarkable lack of investigation into 9.11, and the almost total media blackout of anything other than the accepted story, many people just find it too hard to believe that elements of the government, military, CIA or other intelligence services could or would knowingly allow or instigate such an attack on the citizens of their own country.
Perhaps many people are not aware of how government deception has previously been at the heart of such matters: the burning of the Reichstag, the Gulf of Tonkin, Gulf War, Pearl Harbor, Operation Northwoods. These examples demonstrate that governments have historically been willing and able to fabricate incidents in order to start wars.[ Read more ]
The absence of coverage and investigation of 9.11 is not due to an absence of facts and questions, but rather to an avoidance and cover-up of the evidence. Once one sees this, accepts the frightening notion that elements of the government are quite capable of doing it, and also keeps alert to not getting caught in wanting to find government collusion, then one is ready to ask serious questions of the official story and examine the evidence honestly.
The events of Sept 11th: lack of scrambled jets, Bush's strange behavior, intelligence agencies say they are taken completely by surprise, yet within a few hours Osama bin Ladin is declared the perpetrator, and media response: [ Read more ]
The Official Story: the miraculous indestructible passport, suitcases and letters, fake drivers licenses, suicide notes, Korans and flight manuals, wild night on the town, FBI lists 19, er, 12 hijackers, flight schools and pilot training, Osama videos, and U.S. intelligence says it was clueless: [ Read more ]
What has been left out: financial investing, Bush/bin Ladin ties, Saudi Plane leaves U.S. on Sept 13th, US plans Afghan war in advance, Osama a CIA asset, Anthrax, removal of WTC evidence, Bush/Cheney limiting 9.11 investigation, woman dies in car crash, and other related stories: [ Read more | Cheney/Saddam connections ]

I'm open to suggestions of conspiracy on several subjects. Tour tirade suggesting about 12-15 possibilities pertaining to 9/11 is absurd. Not once did you elaborate a motive, only an innuendo...Please tell us all why the Great Satan would want to kill 1000s of its own citizens. To perpetuate Bush II in office? Get out your evidence and file charges. God knows there are enough hungry lawyers in this country to carry your ball if you have even a shread of evidence. (You might even find a judge, also a lawyer, who might let you file even if you didn't have a shread of evidence.) God help us all, from the likes of you.

Please pull yuor head out of the sand. It is all about money and power and a few thousand people mean nothing to those who have killed millions . Do you think that all of the Iraqi children that died during the oil for food program died only because of Sadams greed, no it was also the UN and several companies including US companies that made millions off their deaths. You see it every day where you work the corprate greed the lack of ethics the outsourcing of jobs only for higher profit. These are the people who run our country not you and I so stop living in a bubble before the bubble burst around you and you have no way out.
