The People's Investigation of 9.11

From the open publishing newswire: This is an incredible piece by Carol Brouillet, whose impressive 9-11 investigation activism has been very inspiring to those of us who are seeking the Truth behind 9-11. This article announces a new website called The People's Investigation of 9-11, pi911.org, which was officially launched at a Press Conference at the Federal Building in San Francisco on October 4th, 2002.

"Almost everyone can remember with clarity the moment that they heard of the attacks of September 11th, and in addition to the grief, shock, horror, fear that we felt collectively and individually was the desire to understand, to know- 'Why?,' 'How?,' and 'Who could possibly benefit from such a crime?'

The government lies to the people
Governments lie often when they plan war. If the people knew the truth they would not support the government's aggression. Examples from our history are demonizations of previous CIA clients like Noriega, Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden. The CIA created a story about Iraqi soldiers throwing babies into the streets just at the time that the Senate was debating whether to support Bush's attack on Baghdad. The attack on the Maddox in the Gulf of Tonkin was fabricated to get a near unanimous vote on entering the Viet Nam War. The accidental sinking of the U.S.S. Maine was blamed on Spain to spur emotions before entering the Spanish American War.
