9.11 investigation

The Biggest Lies Should Be Questioned

"All truth goes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Then it is violently
opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self-evident." Arthur Schopenhaur

How does a government win public support for wars of aggression? Very simply, it lies. Babies thrown out of incubators, fanatic suicidal pilots, weapons of mass destruction, sheer propaganda or special operations, whatever works to fool the people and permit unbridled use of the military to seize resources.
The Biggest Lies Should Be Questioned


Aftermath- Unanswered Questions from 9-11, the documentary film by Sundance award winning Guerrilla News Network, examines the questions and lies that the government would prefer to ignore. The parameters of the joint House and Senate Inquiry and the Independent Commission of 9-11 are studiously designed to obscure rather than cast light upon the truth of what happened on the defining day of the century.


The questions the film raises have been, for the most part, ignored, censored, ridiculed or bitterly attacked by the press, but actively pursued by a public that hungers for the truth. Websites questioning the official narrative of 9-11 abound; books, videos, pamphlets, articles on 9-11 are in high demand. The Deception Dollar, which features Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld labeled as "International Terrorists" and twenty-two key 9-11 websites, has become so popular, that over two million have been printed and are being distributed all over the country and around the world. When Aftermath premiered at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco last April with GNN, Michael Ruppert, Riva Enteen, Peter Dale Scott and Barrie Zwicker (producer of The Great Deception- the first televised challenge to the official story), there was a full house (about 300 people had to be turned away) and the film received a standing ovation.


The most significant feature of the film is to create the public space where serious dialogue is possible concerning an event which is shaping the public perception of reality and transforming the face of the planet.


The most serious threats to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights emanate from the White House and the Department of Justice and are being mirrored in legislation throughout the world which relabels anyone opposed to government or corporate policies "domestic terrorists," giving the green light to all governments to crush dissent.


In early July, Aftermath-Unanswered Questions from 9-11 screenings, panels, and public dialogues will be happening from Berkeley to Philadelphia to Berlin as people throughout the country and the world challenge the obvious official lies and policies that threaten freedom, democracy, and life everywhere.


The film is narrated by Hip Hop artist, Paris, and includes George Soros, (billionaire philanthropist), Mary Schiavo (Aviation Disaster Attorney), Mike Ruppert (Publisher: From the Wilderness), Nafeez Ahmed (Author: The War on Freedom), David McMichael (former CIA analyst), Michel Chossudovsky (Author: War and Globalization), Peter Dale Scott (Professor Emeritus, UC Berkeley, author of Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina), Alex Jones (Editor: Infowars.com), John Judge (Founder, C.O.P.A.), Riva Enteen (Exec. Director, SF National Lawyer's Guild). The questions include-


To what extent should airlines have been prepared for 9/11?
What did the Bush administration know and when?
Why wasn't the US military able to intercept the hijacked planes?
How did the administration respond to the failures of the military and Intelligence agencies on 9/11?
What ties, if any, did the US government and Intelligence agencies have with the terrorists or their supporters?
Were there plans for a war in central Asia prior to September 11?
Is there an underlying motive, besides the War on Terror, for the US military presence in Central Asia?
Is there any historical evidence to suggest that the government may have used the 9/11 attacks to justify its war in Central Asia?
How has the government's reaction to the terrorist attacks affected the rule of law in the United States?
How has recent legislation like the PATRIOT ACT and the Homeland Security bill affected the lives of American people?
What can we do?


While cities throughout the country pass resolutions to "Repeal the PATRIOT Act" and oppose PATRIOT Act II, it is time to look more deeply into the events of 9-11 and identify who could have committed this crime against humanity? Who has benefited? Who has paid the price? How can we hold those ultimately responsible for 9-11 accountable? Those questions need to be asked, loudly, publicly, and not buried under official lies, under the veil of "national security."
