9.11 investigation | imperialism & war

Why I believed the "official story" about 9-11

Here's why I was wrong!
People who follow my posts on PDX Indy know I've been a long-time 9-11 truth activist. But I didn't always think 9-11 was an inside job ... there was about a month back in 2001 where I went along with what the mainstream media was telling us. It's been a long time, but since I'd like currently unaware people to start questioning their misguided trust in the official story, it's important for me to ask myself why ... why did I believe back then what so many still believe today?

They wouldn't dare

It's not that I didn't think the Bush Administration wasn't evil enough to murder hundreds of innocent Americans ... though I can understand why other Americans would think this way. I knew that Bush had stolen the 2000 election, and someone that ruthless against the principles of democracy probably wouldn't blink at killing hundreds of Americans. But now we have proof of how ruthless and uncaring these people are: they lied us into a war that ended up killing and maiming thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. But it would have taken the collusion of (at the very least) scores of people to pull off an inside job, or even a "let it happen on purpose" scenario the scope of what took place that September. Is it possible for that many people to keep such a horrible secret from the public? Yes, according to the man who disclosed the "Pentagon Papers," Daniel Ellsberg:  http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/05/daniel-ellsberg-secrets-can-be-kept.html

But I didn't know that. Early on, I read some papers on Indymedia from people who knew their physics and how buildings were constructed, and said, "there's no way those buildings could have fallen like that. Jet fuel doesn't melt steel. Buildings, if they're going to fall, topple over, they don't disintegrate (at free-fall speed!) into their own footprint, unless it's a well planned, controlled demolition. Today 1,501 verified architectural and engineering professionals agree with that assessment:  http://ae911truth.org

How could they plant all those bombs in secret?

Okay ... I thought. How the hell did they rig up those buildings for a controlled demolition without everyone else in the building knowing about it??? Again, GW at Washington's blog has the answer:  http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2011/05/no-it-wouldnt-have-been-impossible-to.html

Those were my major misgivings. It turns out that it is possible for hundreds of insiders to keep a secret ... this was done during the Manhattan Project, responsible for killing thousands that probably didn't have to die, and unleashing one of the most terrible weapons this Earth has ever known. How many terrible weapons does the acknowledged "Shadow Government" of this country have access to, that most people don't know about? (Hint: look up "HAARP" on your internet browser.)

There are so many inside stock deals, unbelievable gaffes in protocol (in which the offenders weren't punished but promoted) and impossibly convenient coinciences ... anyone in their right mind who looks into this story has to ask ... "why haven't we properly investigated these things? This deserves not only a second look, but a serious government investigation!"

World Trade Center 7 is a 47-story building that was never hit by a plane. It completely collapsed the afternoon of 9/11/01, allegedly due to fire. Many family members of 9-11 victims want to know why. You can contribute to the cause of their informing the public about this anomaly here:  http://rememberbuilding7.org

We need to get more of the left into the Nine Eleven Truth Community. The problem with the left being divided on this issue is that it is now paralyzed after years of Official Story Progressives and democrats punishing those of us on the left that see Nine Eleven as an Inside Job and see 911 as an inside job as a trigger for revolutionary thinking. Without revolutionary thinking political change can not occur. This is why nothing has changed even after the great backlash vote of 2008. This inertia that has gripped the American left after the great success of setting the tone at the WTO protests and that also gave birth to Indymedia.org is not going to break until a majority of people on the left see 911 as an inside job and allow the dynamic of 911 as an inside job to inspire revolutionary thinking.

THE SPECTACLE 28.May.2011 14:45


The power-players , whomever they may be , that orchestrated this event obviously had vast resources at their disposal , and among those resources one should consider the likely existance of teams of advisors . Of those teams , one of the most important to the sucessful control of the outcome , would be a team of psychoanalitical experts that would advise as to the way the event itself should go down for maximum psychological impact , and also the way in which the media info stream should be crafted in the aftermath !
The wholesale buy-in to the very weak and illogical offical conspiracy theory ( even by most on the so called left ) is testamony as to how well these advisory teams performed their duties.
Edward Bernaise would be proud !

......for anyone who finds the above statements of possibility too fantasic or over the the top , you would be well advised to study up on some u. s. history .... for example : the beginning of the spanish- american war , the gulf of Tonkin incident , * The Project For A New American Century * , etc.
