I was reading a fascinating article called "Are You Brainwashed? Part I" by Lonnie Wolfe at Executive Intelligence Review [ http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=205 ] and I was struck by the following excerpt:
Somewhere in your memory banks, were planted the "pictures in your head" of the WTC attack. New Yorker film critic Anthony Lane writes in the magazine's Sept. 24 issue, "How often have we listened to these words [since Sept. 11]. The statement of fact: `The worst terrorist bombing since Oklahoma City.' The promise: `Make no mistake about it--we will hunt down the enemy, we will find the enemy, and we will kill the enemy.' The caution: `You can't fight a war against an enemy you can't see.' And the ominous look ahead: `This is a time of war; the fact that it is inside our border means that it is a new kind of war.' We have learned such sentiments like a script; that we have heard it again and again [in the days since Sept. 11] has not diminished the sternness with which we have given our assent.
"Just one problem: it IS a script. All the lines quoted come from `The Siege,' a 1998 thriller directed by Edward Zwick."
Intrigued, I googled the movie to find out more about the plot. Immediately I was presented with the movie's tagline: "On November 6th our freedom is history."
I blinked. November 6th...? ... No WAAAYYYY ... (What's 11-6 upside down?)
You see, I also remember hearing about a TV episode called "The Lone Gunman" right here on Portland Indymedia:
"FOX TV show depicts a U.S. government plot to crash a hijacked Boeing into the WTC six months before 9/11!"
I also remember hearing that Tom Clancy, who seems to have an inside scoop on a lot of things, wrote a book about a plane hitting the Twin Towers. I don't remember the name of the book though.
Could these things be flukes, or are they somehow deliberate? Could they serve some kind of psychological purpose, to somehow help to direct the flow of events or our reactions to them? Just a thought.
