9/11 Revisited

"Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have sensors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly there are those who are more responsible than others. And they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it! I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you. And in your panic, you turned to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace. And all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.” That quote is from one of my favorite films, V for Vendetta. Fear has been used for psychological manipulation since the beginning of time. It is very important to study history and to research all of the possibilities in a situation.

It was February the 27th, 1933. Hitler had waged an all-out war against the communist party and was plotting his takeover. Germany’s Parliament, the Reichstag, was set ablaze by the Nazi party in an attempt to convince the German public that the communist party was planning a violent coup d'état. Soon after this psychological operation, the Reichstag Fire Decree and the Enabling Acts were passed. This entire event was pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany. Yet the Nazis were not alone in the use of this tactic. On August 4, 1964; two American destroyers reported being attacked by North Vietnamese boats outside of the Gulf of Tonkin. This single event swept America into Vietnam and allowed President Johnson to pass the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. Government documents uncovered in 2005 now reveal that this incident never occurred. Similarly, the Patriot Act was hastily passed in the middle of the night soon after September 11. The Patriot Act has been one of the most destructive overreaches of the United States Constitution in recent history, allowing warrantless wiretapping and in some cases the bypassing of the Writ of Habeas Corpus altogether. Fear was the tool the state used to gain control. Many have never questioned the official 9/11 Commission’s story of September the 11th, although a multitude of questions are left unanswered. Today, many who desire to uncover the truth of that fateful day are labeled as “extremists”or “nut-jobs”. All one has to do is take a glance at other historical events, and realize that the individuals who seek answers are doing nothing more than fighting for liberty, freedom, and justice. With so many questions left unanswered, it leaves an individual to think; is something being hidden from the public eye? What was the motive behind the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Benjamin Franklin once said, "It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority." It is vital to the survival of a nation that its citizens do not allow their elected officials
to rule unchecked. Vigilance is the water to the tree that is liberty, and conducting your own research is one of the best ways to seek truth. There are too many questions left ignored and unanswered about the events on September 11th. During the 9/11 commission; former Secretary of Transportation Norman Maneta stated that Cheney ordered NORAD to stand down. Why did NORAD stand down on September 11th? All of the jets that could have responded were 150 miles away conducting various drills. Vigilant Guardian, an affiliate of Global Guardian, was a drill conducted by NORAD on September 11 that simulated planes that were hijacked in the northeast U.S. Many responders were confused because of this, and thought that reports that a plane was hijacked was part of this drill. These drills remind me of a similar event that occurred this year on the 8th anniversary of September 11th. On my way to Washington, I discovered that a boat outside of the Pentagon had been fired upon-only to discover later that the Coast Guard was conducting a drill and no shots had been fired. Who would have authorized such a drill to take place, terrorizing those who had come to pay their respects at a memorial service outside the Pentagon? Just when the elites feel we may have forgotten why we are still fighting in an undeclared, unjust war, they feel that they need to remind us why one million innocent people have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why have they, really? I wish I knew the answer. Fear is always the ultimate manipulator. If you can put an individual, or a group of individuals, in an emotional state, they will yearn for someone to give them direction, to rule over them. They will seek protection. So all that needs to be done in order to take control over a group is to put them in an emotional state by an event, and then you may do what you wish in order to seize power; all the while the victims of such event will blindly think their ruler is protecting them. If this sounds farfetched, simply compare Hitler’s tactics to those used frequently today. Psychological operations have been used at many points throughout history.

According to the Bush administration, the events of September 11th were unpredictable. However, Condoleezza Rice herself stated that the Bush administration had been notified. One report was even entitled, “Bin Laden determined to attack inside the United States.” Despite all the notifications, we are expected to believe our government turned a blind eye to such bold warnings. Even FBI agent Sibel Edmonds broke a federal gag order to reveal that the Bin Laden family had close ties with the United States government far before the September 11th attacks. One question I find extremely concerning is the amount of time it took to begin an investigation into the 9/11 attacks. The 9/11 Commission did not form until December of 2001. Compare that with the Warren Commission, which was created only seven days after Kennedy was assassinated. Something is dreadfully wrong with their story, and many Americans are asking these questions only to be laughed at. Since when is it wrong to ask a simple question? Sadly, this is the mindset the elites do not want you to adopt. They would love if Americans were too apathetic to keep them in check, so they can go along their business without any distractions. Thanks to corporate media, many Americans have adopted this apathetic mindset.

A woman by the name of Janette MacKinlay owned an apartment across the street from the World Trade Center. On the morning of September the 11th, she was minding her business as usual, going through her emails and chatting with a friend. That morning, her life changed forever. Her home was ultimately destroyed, but one thing was left behind; the powdery dust that had filled Manhattan’s streets on 9/11. Being so close to the buildings as they fell, Janette claimed she had heard explosions going off inside the buildings. She later decided to bring some samples of this dust to Dr. Steven E. Jones, a professor and physician. Upon studying the dust under a microscope, Steven found chips of a substance that were reddish in color. After extensive testing; he found these chips to consist of carbon, oxygen, iron and aluminum, the components of nano-thermite. Thermite is an explosive only readily available to the United States government. This conclusion leaves me questioning why steel from the World Trade Center was shipped abroad soon after the towers fell, only to be melted down and sold. Is our government trying to hide something from us? The World Trade Center buildings were the first steel frame buildings in history to collapse because of fire. And yet, we are also expected to believe that 200,000 tons of steel was demolished in about 10 seconds by 10,000 tons of jet fuel. World Trade Center Seven is an entirely different story. The official story states that WTC7 fell because of structural damage on the thirteenth floor due to fire at 5:20pm, and collapsed in about 8 seconds. If so, it would be only the third steel frame building in history to collapse from fire. As for the planes that crashed into the Pentagon and just outside of Pittsburgh, wreckage from flights 93 and 77 have never been positively identified. How a jet can simply vanish with so little wreckage simply defies me.

If you are the average American, I can guess what you are thinking. What does this mean to me? I could not find any better way to answer that question than in the words of Charles de Montesquieu. “The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.” Apathy is the tool evil men use to gain power, and power truly does reside in a nation’s citizens. It is up to us whether we want to rule, or whether we want to be ruled over.
