AND THEN THERE WAS ONE! The Final Holdout: 9/11

By Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

NOTE: Please link to our new site for updated 9/11 news-at-a-glance!

Not to worry, this is not about truth seekers or conspiracy theories. It is not about the long list of anomalies and discrepancies in the official story of 9/11. It is not even about the undeniable fact that the events of 9/11 gave George Bush and his handlers the keys to the neocon kingdom of empire. It really is not.

What it is about is the strangest phenomenon I can recall in my entire adult life. It is about what I perceive to be an extraordinary lapse in the logic of millions of otherwise sensible Americans. And it is about something I cannot wrap my mind around, no matter how I try. Maybe someone out there can help me understand what is going on.

In preface, let me also say that this is not about being uninformed. Granted, the corporate media have suppressed any discussion, debate or investigative reporting about the attacks on the United States that purportedly changed everything. That reality aside, even the most fawn-like pundits on the airwaves understand that the ship of state is sinking, and that it is time to challenge the lies of this administration. But, it seems that lie after lie has become fair game for disclosure, or at least for some discussion at this point. As a result, each day, the American people in larger and larger numbers understand that they have been taken for a terrible and costly ride by the lies they were told by this President and his cohorts.

That is, every lie but one.

Finally, nearly seven years after a stolen election that was itself based on lies, greater numbers of Americans are no longer blindly accepting the talking points emanating from the White House as the Gospel truth. In more and more media outlets the Bush lies are openly being identified as such, - rather than by every other euphemism meant to soften the ugliness of a government lying to its people. If people are not totally convinced, at least they hear debates and discussions and competing viewpoints. If nothing else, they are beginning to have doubts about the daily mantras that had them mesmerized for so long.

So, take a look at just the short list of these lies, so as better to understand my dilemma about the lone holdout: 9/11. Bear with me:

At this point in time, many, if not most Americans know that the men and women in the Bush White House clearly and deliberately LIED to them, both by omission and commission about:

- The Bush connection to the bin Laden family.

- Escorting dozens of members of the bin Laden family out of US after 9/11

- The Patriot Act having been written decades before 9/11

- The call for a new Pearl Harbor by the neocons who orchestrated the wars

- A totally invalid and false connection between Iraq and the phony War on Terror

- Regular, politically timed terror alerts

- Toxic air quality at Ground Zero after 9/11

- The junk science of Global Warming and its effects around the globe

- WH orders to suppress and politicize reports on by the Surgeon General

- Plans for wars with Iraq and Afghanistan that were made before 9/11

- Saddam Hussein’s possession of WMD

- Saddam Hussein’s connection to Al Qaeda

- Saddam Hussein’s involvement in 9/11

- Saddam Hussein’s threat to the US or his neighbors

- Having NO plans for an extended occupation of Iraq or for keeping the peace

- Inadequate armor and supplies for our men and women in uniform

- Supposed progress in Iraq, time after time

- Fudged numbers of civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq

- The staged toppling of Saddam’s statue

- The staged rescue of Jessica Lynch

- The lies about Pat Tillman’s death by friendly fire

- Illegal warrantless spying on US citizens

- Torture at Abu Ghraib and other prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan

- Rendition of detainees to other countries for torture

- Outing Valerie Plame as a CIA operative

- White House involvement in the firing of federal prosecutors.

There are so many more lies to list, but I think you get the idea.

Am I wrong to believe that in any other life situation there would be a different reaction to a series of important lies? If you became aware that your plumber or your neighbor or your doctor, or anyone at all in your life lied to you over and over and over about issues that were relevant to your well being, would you ever again believe ANYTHING that person said to you? I really don’t think so.

So, after becoming aware of lie after lie after lie by Bushco, why would anyone in his or her right mind FULLY EMBRACE THE OFFICIAL STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED ON 9/11 WITHOUT A SINGLE QUESTION? Why would anyone in the United Sates of America conclude that the official version of the most important event in recent American history AS TOLD BY PROVEN LIARS is true?

Help me out here, please.

It makes no sense to me at all. Especially, since the most telling part of all this illogic is this: NONE OF THE LIES ON THE ABOVE LIST WOULD HAVE BEEN NECESSARY OR EVEN POSSIBLE WERE IT NOT FOR AN UNSWERVING ACCEPTANCE BY MOST AMERICANS OF THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF 9/11.

Bottom line: I fully understand how difficult it is to believe anything other than the official government story of 9/11. The editor of TvNewsLIES.org has examined the reasons behind the refusal of so many Americans to believe the mounds of evidence that challenge the credibility of the story we have been told. Fine and good.

But, frankly, for the purpose of this article, your personal opinion about who was responsible for 9/11 is irrelevant. It makes no difference at all. What matters is that we examine the strange illogic that stops millions of Americans from questioning a possible lie - one that may matter more than any other. These same Americans now seem willing to openly question many of the lies that are told and repeated ad nauseam by the President and his clan. They are now for more skeptical about their messages and far more hesitant to believe anything George W. Bush tells them in his speeches and press conferences.

But they still will not consider for a moment that the official story of 9/11 as told by this lying government may also be a lie. Ergo, the illogic I cannot understand..

The official story of 9/11 has been told by professional, experienced, and successful liars.
Think about that as you try to explain the need to believe it.

Maybe it will take another 9/11, as we’ve recently been warned may happen very soon, to convince Americans that the most egregious and damaging of all the lies told by the Bush administration must not remain off limits.

We really have few choices left. We have to reach that logical moment when we can openly discuss and debate and examine the available information about 9/11, no matter what the outcome may be. We have to retrieve our collective abilities to examine the events of that day. Perhaps, then, we finally can say about the lies we have heard:

…and then there were none.

    Well, if no one else will try…you’re right, it escapes logic. The only one I can think of is a sort of mass mafiosa mentality…as in, ‘we’re all part of the murders, therefore, we have to believe that what we did was righteous, my heart and soul cannot accept the alternative. I have to be a hero, no matter what.’ ( The alternative being that I have to see myself as a colonialist studge and a baby killer..and my brain just won’t , indeed can’t, go there.)

  2. Reggie says:

    I’m not sure there is an answer, ike…but thanks for trying. Someone else suggested some sort of sci-fi secret beam blocking American brain waves. I’m truly stumped…..

  3. Truth Seeker on March 4, 1972 on January 7, 2003 on August 21, 2004, or no, sorry, actually says:

    This is just off the cuff, but my answer is that Americans typically fall into these categories:

    1) Those who are doing well financially, and really don’t give a damn what is going on, as long as the gravy train keeps on working for them.

    2) Those who are working their asses off trying to stay afloat in this trickle-up economy, and don’t have the time or energy to learn or think about what the demons in D.C. may have done.

    When you throw in the fact that major media outlets do their damndest to prevent open, honest discussion of the events of 9/11, and also routinely portray critics of the “official story” as lunatics, the points above may seem even more realistic.

  4. D610 says:

    From my vantage point as a liberal atheist, I have to factor religion into the mix. The Neo-Cons did a masterful job of blending the religious right into the fabric of everything Bush and his gang do.

    Myth minds follow without question. Govt. version of 9/11 is up there with church dogma, thanks to a willing corporate media. To many, to question the govt. version, is to question God.

  5. Reggie says:

    Truth-Seeker: These same folks you categorize are willing to question the other lies…and are even openly acknowledging the hoax of the war lies as well as others.

    The question remains about why those who are able to see through the other lies simply refuse to even consider the possibility that they were lied to about 9/11. It’s even more mind boggling when you consider the fact that Bush refused to have any investigation of the attacks for a full year……and only conceded to a limited investigation with no subpoena power and hardly any funding.

  6. Marmann says:

    Great points, but you forgot the biggest one, the “800-pound gorilla in the room,” who the largest “state sponsor” of terrorism truly is.

    Saddam Hussein would have never permitted Al Qaeda in Iraq. We waged a weak, soonly forgotten war against Afghanistan, purportedly for getting Bin Laden. (Remember how, “Wanted, dead or alive” suddenly became, “I don’t really care about him”? Combined with the fact that Bush stated in 1999 (two years BEFORE 9/11) that he would invade Iraq if he ever had athe chance, I believe that could be construed as “malice aforethought,” no?

    Bush then invaded Iraq, knowing full well that Al Qaeda would fill the void that Bush created. He knew this because he was warned many, many times that this would happen. He not only gifted Al Qaeda with an entire country in which they could train, but he also supplied them with practice targets in the form of US soldiers.

    He continues to say he will only listen to the “generals on the ground,” but the generals are all US patriots who want what is best for the USA, and as soon as one of them goes against the Bushladen plan, he is summarily dismissed and replaced with another who is willing to suck up to Bushladen.

    Congress is going on summer recess soon. When the cats are away, the rat sure does like to play. (Remember the Bolton UN “recess” he pushed through when they were gone?)

    I truly believe American can expect two attacks, maybe this summer. You see, Bush needs Americans to suffer another “terra attack” so he can blame Iran this time, in the hopes that we will have the same anger and indignation and want to “get the guys who attacked us,” thus nodding our heads in agreement to another fake war, this time against Iran.

    The President of Iran may be nuts, but he’s not stupid. I’m sure, after witnessing what the USA did to his neighbor, Iraq, many Iranian cells have been scattered throughout the USA for some time now, ready to strike when ordered. However, I don’t believe they will strike unless we attack Iran first. Therefore, we need a “reason” to attack Iran: Hence, the first “terror attack” here.

    Bush is losing his grip on power in the USA. The only thing he can do to achieve his ultimate goal of promoting himself from “The Decider” to “The Dictator” is to create chaos in the USA, declare martial law and let his Blackwater troops carry out the orders they’ve already been given and fill the secret prisons that have already been built. Don’t forget that there are actual fallout shelters surrounding the White House. They are probably being freshly stocked and readied, as I write this, for Bushladen and his “base,” the top 1-percenters in the nation (and maybe even Bin Laden himself). Once the antedote to the radiation permeating America has been given, the rich boys can then come out, start a new America and reinvite Mexicans to the USA.

    The end result is the dictatorship of America, where the only occupants consist of the richest of the rich and their Mexican slaves.

    Nobody will ever have realized that the biggest state sponsor of terrorism was George W. Bush, and he did it right in front of America while America had its eyes wide shut.

    The above is either fiction arising from an active imagination or it’s a viable possibility. If you don’t think it can happen, then please explain to me what steps Bushladen has taken to insure it won’t because we are where we are today, after constant, multiple warnings against it, and there is only one person who has placed us in this position: George W. Bush, the largest “state sponsor” of terrorism.

    I truly hope it’s fiction.

  8. Reggie says:

    There will be another attack.. or the bombing of Iran. Something has to happen to allow the Presidential Directive 501 to go into effect. If you don’t know what that is… check it out on the govt’s own site…google it. It will scare the living daylights out of you…..and the setting for martia law will be validated.

    Fun time ahead. No fiction here… just the desperation of men who will not relinquish the power it has taken two decades to assume.

    Read Bill Kristol (PNAC founder) in today’s Washington Post….. and weep.

    Then read the ridicule this article has received at Daily Kos…where someone posted it. It’s a lost cause all around.

    It truely is amazing, I’ve been dealing with pigheaded friends for five years now! I’m baffled by their idiotic responses to simple questions. It’s as though they’ve been sapped of all their logic and the brain ceases to exist for the length of their comment.
    I do wish to point out one error I noticed…

    ‘Having NO plans for an extended occupation of Iraq or for keeping the peace’

    I believe they’ve got BIG plans for an extended occupation, none for keeping the peace, but plenty of plans for staying, just none of them good.

  12. AND THEN THERE WAS ONE… The Final Holdout

    So let’s take a look at just the short list of these lies, so as better to understand my dilemma about the lone holdout:

  13. brisa says:

    Cognative dissonance is a powerful defense mechanism. The 911 atrocity was carefully portrayed in the media to produce maximum psycholigical trauma. And the corporate media continues is enabling of the official lie because to admit the truth would terminally undermine their credibility (what’s left of it.)

    This administration operates like an organized crime family because that is exactly what they are. Any elected representative who questions the many 911 lies told is threatened or harrassed. (former Senator Mark Dayton and Rep. Cynthia McKinney for example)

    Those calling for an independent and well funded investigation into the 911 atrocity are growing in number, but the truth is most likely so horrific, that it will never be revealed by this or future administrations.

  14. jmirving says:

    This is a subject that has perplexed me since early on when 9/11 was immediately blamed upon Bin Laden when there was absolutely no way anybody could have had any idea who was responsible. Since that time I believe I have arrived at a reasonable conclusion and it is not unique to this country. Ever since our escape from colonial rule the banking interests, those associated with the Rothschild family, have sought to reassert their tyranny upon us. This became a reality with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act which was signed by president Woodrow Wilson on Dec. 13th, 1913. This had already been funded by the alleged ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment which granted congress the power to lay taxes. Many consider this to have been the end of our republic.
    Much research had already been done on mind control and how to indoctrinate people. The highly developed Prussian model was adopted to teach Americans what to believe and how to be “good citizens. It relied primarily on memorization of selected “facts” and discouraged independent thought. All of us who have been through the public schools have been the victims of this dreadfully boring system of mind control. For an in depth examination of how this started and continues to mature see the free E-book by Charlotte Iserbyt at: http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/
    This has been augmented and reinforced by our institutions of higher learning, our media and what passes for our religious and civic organizations.
    The most important message is always belief in and trust in the authority of these entities and their leaders. Most Americans are emotionally incapable of even entertaining the thought that almost everything they have been taught about their country and how the world works are a carefully fabricated pack of lies. We are carefully taught “The Pledge of Allegiance” and how our government is “Of the people, by the people, and for the people!” This is perhaps the most blatant load of crap that was dumped upon us. When you approach the subject of 9/11, getting most Americans to consider that their own government might be complicit in the barbaric murder of their own people is like trying to convince them that God does not exist. They are hopelessly and irrevocably brainwashed and indoctrinated. Precisely the desired product of public education.

  15. Reggie says:

    Amantia: while they intended to stay forever in Iraq…the neocon madmen did not PLAN for the occupation of a nation of 26 million people whose tribal and religious conflicts had been kept in check by a strong, albiet cruel, dictator. They walked in with no plans…. only intentions. I understand your comment, but this whole disaster was totally devoid of any planning.

  16. Reggie says:

    Also…. my list refers to the PLANS for war made by PNAC before 9/11 in their mission statement. That lie has been one of omission more than commission, as no one in the msm ever acknowledges it, and the Bush administration pretended the war was a response to terror.

  17. desertbud says:

    I think people are embarrassed to admit they were suckered. I sure felt pretty stupid when I found out burning jet fuel doesn’t melt steel, and recently when I saw a video analysis of “planes hitting the WTC towers”, showing that all the images we’ve seen were doctored and that no planes hit the buildings.
    To answer your question: No one wants to admit they’ve been had. It’s more convenient to ignore 911 Truth.

    I agree. Knowing first hand how the blueprint of a dictatorship in another country was planned, I have said this all along since the 2000 highjacking of America Sad to say, many of “US” one morning will wake up, to find America under the gun of the Blackwater mercenaries. In that country — they were called “Blackshirts; In Germany “Brownshirts.”

    Another significant factor is the appalling ignorance and self-absorbtion of the American people. The majority of Americans couldn’t find Iraq or Afghanistan on a world map. Hell, a majority of Americans probably couldn’t find New York City on a map. But they can tell you all about Paris Hilton (you can probably blame the MSM for THAT one).

    The CIA and other ’shadow government’ - related organizations have dumbed-down Americans quite effectively.

    In order for anything to change we must have a plan of attack. I believe that the republicans know exactly what they are doing in Iraq because the best way to steal from the american taxpayers and the Iraqi oil is to have a war that will never end. I also believe Bin Laden is still on the payroll. What does 911 even mean to the Muslim world? I also believe that bush and cheney planned and executed 911 with Saudi help, etc. SO WHAT!!! How can I change anything that happened or is about to happen. I read your comments but I don’t see any suggestions for change. We all agree that something is very wrong! So, how do we destroy the republican regime? To destroy any enemy, you must destroy the base. If the base is the religious right then you must destroy the republican base. How do you change someone’s mind that blindly follows the lies of false prophets. Tell everyone of them about the Bohemian Club and the secret worship meetings every July in Marin County, CA. Search Bohemian Club and read the member list. Remember, some sites show vistors going like Carter, Clinton and even Danny Glover because they do have an area that provides entertainment. However, you must read the republican list of members that attend the secret meetings every July. Ask your religious republican believers if they even know about the Bohemian Club secret worship rneetings. This is your answer to any religious republican that cannot see the truth that you and I see. The more religious people we ask this question the more religious people will know about the Bohemian Club and what they worship. I live in Atlanta and every July for years the AJC reported about NEWT going to the Bohemian Club in CA. I believe the republican base can be destroyed just by telling the TRUTH about the Bohemian Club and who they worship. If they truly believe in God then they must know about the Bohemian Club or they may be dammed forever. I will never understand why someone who truly believes in God is afraid to die. You can ask them this question also!!! Do you truly believe in GOD? Then why are you afraid to die and why would you be afraid of something that put you closer to GOD? How can someone tell you we are killing people to give them democracy when they stole the democracy in two elections in America. Like thieves in the middle of the night! How blind are these people??? Please pray for these people and GOD’s forgiveness. Thank You!

    PS to Vietnam2: It’s not a good idea to pray for the Devil and his demons in human form! Pray for God’s judgment instead! “Resist the Devil and he will flee from you.” We must put on the ‘whole armor of God’ and wield the sword of His Word!

    Finally, “He will also do it” - so everything will be OK at the End :) “You will be sorrowful but your sorrow will be turned into JOY!”

  27. fido says:

    Great stuff reggie. I will take this to whatever sites I habituate. I think there is a disconnect that makes people adhere to their beliefs despite being shaken to their core- sometimes they cling harder to their beliefs in hopes it will carry them through. It is a form of protective insanity the brain has manufactured to help us through these PTSD moments we encounter engaging in everyday lifes trauma’s. Fight/flight inspired, it comes from our autonomic response area of the brain- our ancient ancestor. To accept the horror you describe is to admit that the programming one received in the conscious mind is false and there needs to be a major rethinking of reality. That and the fact that we are fans of our country, that is stirred up by our adherance to the City State concept of Ancient Greece- where your devotions are to your city and it’s teams. This blots out the country as my mother concept and replaces it closer to home. But when the country is attacked, that devotion returns to the political arena quickly and one gets caught up in the ferver of devotion to nationalistic ideals. Everything starts small and grows into a bigger concept. Fascist ideals are important to follow as they are based in devotion to the fatherland and the country becomes the stern father figure to the states/cities motherly love. Go cheer your team now and see if the planes are flying overhead- this is all the proof that you need to confirm that there is more to sports than just a game. Unfortunately they’ve made a game out of life now so we’re addicted to that as well. Beliefs are their greatest tool and in the end people can’t let go of them. The resulting cascade of confusion would stagnate the average brain into a state of frenzied agitation and anxiety- 2 stressors you don’t want in your life.

    Besides, most people think this is merely business as usual anyway. At least 1/3 rd of Americans have said that already. (Zogby poll from last year).

  28. Reggie says:

    I wish I had the answers…. but I don’t. Still, the first weapon we all have is INFORMATION that is based on fact. If we can get the truth out to more and m ore people….and document it, as we try to do at TvNewsLIES.org, there is a chance that we can awaken a sleeping populace.

    The sad thing is that we have such gatekeepers among our own. For the record, the person who posted this article at Daily Kos has been banned from posting. So much for freedom of speech.

    We are in DEEP denial in the USA. Even the “Left” (whatever that might be) with its claims that the Bush Crime Family did 9/11 for profit (to justify war in the Middle East for “oil”), is off-base (not far off, but still not there yet). The “truth” as I see it is far more horrible than that.

    When the media and the government immediately yelled “it’s Muslims!” - the result was a groundswell of self-righteous indignation, and we immediately set about our appointed task of bombing and killing Muslims. We’ve sure done a good job of that, if nothing else.

    When on reflection some started saying “the Government did 9/11!” - well, the reaction was partly denial (”surely they wouldn’t do such a thing…. don’t be ridiculous”) and partly cynical musings on the nature of Government (”well, what do you expect?”…”they’re in it for themselves”…”feathering their nests”…”remember Vietnam” etc etc.).

    But if anyone should have the temerity to mention the “J” word… well, that’s where the real trouble starts. That’s when the accusations of “anti-Semitism” start to fly. That’s when the 9/11 doubter starts to hear phrases like “how DARE you suggest it was Israelis?!” (can anyone imagine that phrase in any other context?)…and, most telling: “remember the Holocaust!” - as if being victimized 60 years ago gave carte blanche to modern Jews who cannot and must not ever under ANY circumstances be blamed for ANYTHING because “we all know where that leads to” ….followed by dark mutterings about “gas chambers”…probably the only piece of 20th century history that most Americans bother remembering.

    So, Rule 1: NEVER blame Israelis or Jews whatever they do because of the “consequences” of blaming them. Rule 2: If you DO blame them you are a “Nazi” and a “hater” and thus cannot be reasoned with - end of discussion. Therefore Israelis and Jews are ALWAYS innocent.

    That’s despite:
    1. precedent (Lavon Affair, USS Liberty and other “false flag” operations);
    2. evidence and opportunity (the preponderance of Jews in the Bush Administration - Perle, Feith, Wolfowitz, Abrams, Chertoff, and on and on - many with dual Israeli-US nationality by the way ; the 9/11 “high-fivers” and other Israelis (60 in total) arrested and then released and deported, the huge pre-9/11 Israeli “spying” operation, the co-operation of our corrupt Media owned whether one likes it or not primarily by those of the Jewish persuasion, ownership and leadership of the Fed and World Bank who hold the purse-strings);
    3. motive (the security of Israel and the destruction of the main Muslim enemies of Israel in the Middle East at US expense with the oil as “reward” for Halliburton/Cheney). By contrast Muslims haven’t exactly benefited from 9/11, have they?

    “At least Mullah Omar and the Taliban never made any bones about the depth of their contempt for the US. Israel, on the other hand, pretends to be our staunchest ally, more royalist than the king when it comes to confronting the declared enemies of the West. Yet an undeclared enemy, posing as a friend, is in many ways a greater potential threat – as, perhaps, we are beginning to learn.”– Justin Raimondo

    “I’ve never seen a president - I don’t care who he is - stand up to them [the Israelis]. It just boggles your mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what’s going on all the time. … If the American people understood what grip those people have on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens don’t have any idea what goes on.”
    – Admiral Thomas Moorer of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. (Washington Report 12/1999, p.124 quoted in Andrew Hurley’s book, “One Nation Under Israel”)

    “The Israelis control the policy in the Congress and the Senate.”
    –Senator Fullbright, Chair of Senate Foreign Relations Committee: 10/07/1973 on CBS’ “Face the Nation”.

    “It annoys me to see that websites and “documentaries” still exist that try and link Jews to 9/11 or indeed directly incriminate them as the planners of 9/11. Whilst I respect everyones right to free speech, I do not respect anyones right to be anti-semitic. In my opinion the government needs to draft new laws aimed at those supporting terrorism (e.g. Rosie O’Donnell, Alex Jones & Dylan Avery), and anti-Jewish/Zionist laws to enable the makers of documentaries such as Loose Change and the authors and hosts of any anti-semitic websites (e.g. wtc7.net, Scholars For 9/11 Truth & Justice, 9/11 Truth) to be locked up indefinitely in FEMA internment camps.”
    –Larry Silverstein, WTC leaseholder who made billions from the insurance.

    “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”
    – Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, October 8th.

    “America” is nothing but a gigantic ongoing retroactive fiction to inculcate exactly the kind of point of view you are projecting.

    …and, yes, I figure this will be deleted since it doesn’t conform to your paradigm: political dialog while people are dieing is bullsh$t.

  31. LibbyBuck says:

    I’ve thought about this incessantly and this is my theory:

    In order for people to know and accept the truth they must have a spiritual and emotionall crisis first.

    They must realize that throughout their entire lives they have been lied to. From cradle to grave, all we have EVER been told are lies.

    Here are the hardest ones for me to take:

    Gas is the only substance that a car can run on.
    Paying Federal taxes is required by law

    This is what 9/11 has taught us and most people are not willing to trigger a self induced crisis.

    This realization grabbed me by the hair and dragged me through my own emotional hell. Now I can’t shut my mouth and I’ve lost lots of friends because of it.

    PS - Does it scare the pants off of anyone else that Dick Cheney is going to be the President this weekend while Bushie gets his ass scraped?

  32. dajson says:

    I think the American media is complicit in providing a safe-haven for the official 9/11 story. People who are not inclined to become illuminated by the Internet like to live in the Television comfort zone of the official story, and should someone like Rosie O’Donnel should question why WTC building 7 fell for no real reason like a controlled demolition she will be shouted down, and damned damned. This article makes the biggest reason to think 9/11 was an inside job is because nothing they have told us about or since is even true. All we know about 9/11 and Iraq for that matter is that we don’t know the truth. My jaw still drags on the ground sometimes when I remember that all the forensic evidence for the 9/11 event was quickly swept under the carpet and destroyed.

  33. dajson says:

    There is a real compelling link between 9/11 and Israel, but here’s my take on this from a couple more steps back. This is and has always been an undeclaired class war in America and 9/11 may be the beginning of the death blow to the middle class. Since the first Bush they have pushed therough NAFTA and other FTA’s to basically make the western hemesphere like one country as has happened with the European Union. This has been for the benefit of multi-national corporations to the dismantalling of the middle class. Bush and his dad have both been directly involved with the board of directorys for the Carlyle Group, which is a private equity firm who had a hand in what happened to the U.S.S.R after a demoralising and bankrupting war in Afghanistan. The Soviet infrastructure was bought and sold by these equity firms who made billions and Russia’s expense. Now Russia is a democracy with a greedy upper ruling class for you to vote for just like US. I think 9/11 was to turn the same kind of demoralising and bankrupting war on US and they even are using the one of the same countries to do this to US. Once America is bankrupt and demoralized with our Constitution and rights reduced to 3rd world standards then these equity firms will buy up the American infrastructure, and if you thought the privitized utilities have been Enron-ized you aint seen nothing yet. We need to recognize the class war fought against US so we can start fighting back before its too late.

    >>Why would anyone in the United Sates of America conclude that the official version of the most important event in recent American history AS TOLD BY PROVEN LIARS is true?

  35. henryford555 says:

    A while back I made a similar pledge on a different board trying to encourage others to question 9/11 if they want the flow of disappointments/pain to stop. A short excerpt follows:

    “I would like to express my gratitude to those who recognize just how corrupt and dishonest our government officials have become. Those who question the official stories (e.g. the pancake theory, the 19 hijackers story, the WMD threat, the cakewalk promise, the mission accomplished declaration, and the War on Terror excuse) will not be disappointed.”

    At any rate, my answer to the main question is: TV and Newspapers (i.e. MSM). Buscho has their full support. Otherwise Buscho wouldn’t stand a chance or last a day in covering up this secretive government action.

    p.s. Now we know the (real) reason why the Deceiver doesn’t bother to read the papers. I mean what’s the point of reading the echo of his own speech/agenda?

    DAJSON:

    Nice try but WRONG!

    You SEE!, the whole point about 9/11 was to provide an excuse to invade and dismember Iraq - one of Israel’s main ME enemies! (the others are Iran and Syria - up next). The Zionist Neocons (Abrams, Perle, Feith, etc.) pushed America into this disaster by leaning on Bush (they didn’t have to lean very hard) ;)

    The destruction of the American economy by Greenspan and Bernanke is just a little Zionist bonus! ;) The Grand Depression is right up their alley to cause chaos and create their dream “Greater Israel” and NWO (New World Order - run from Jerusalem).

    But they forgot about Yahweh, Who is mightily PO’d about the whole thing and is gonna keep His promise to MELT the rebellious house of Israel!

    Class warfare (the destruction of all classes except the slaves and the Rich) is just ‘collateral damage’ ;) Same for a few million goyim sacrificed! - mostly Muslims and Christians but even Jews will be their victims.

  37. worldman says:

    My take?
    Israel is behind the biggest lie of anybody’s lifetime.
    Assume for instance, the man known to the world as Jesus Christ, is a fabrication. The religious leaders of the time constructed a religion that corresponded to what they wanted.
    Next assume that the man wounded on the cross, never really died, but had only succumbed to a ‘near death’ state of health. He was immediately taken to his burial cave, soon after being declared ‘dead.’
    After three days he had healed enough to escape the cave, through a rear, secret exit/entrance, from which he then escaped to the land of India.
    If you are a Christian, then you are being dictated to by either Israel iteself, or the Vatican, controlling all followers of the Pope, and what he reveals to the masses.
    Now really, just how religious can the gatherings be for our political and entertainment bigwigs at the Bohemian Grove?
    Threw you a curveball, huh?

  38. henryford555 says:

    I am responding to worldman’s comments. Since 9/11, I see the parallel between state sponsored terrorism and the pre-dominant religion in the US. Both use fear tactics. Terrorists will follow us to Homeland if we don’t fight them in Iraq? Satan will follow us if we don’t ask God to pardon our sins? Here in our Homeland, we are subject to various labeling schemes. Examples are: “domestic terrorists,” “sinners,” “conspiracy theorists,” etc.

  39. trustno1 says:

    The answer is quite simple: Americans are too apathetic, lazy, ignorant and self-centered to care about anything that doesn’t affect them personally. Take away their Bud Light in a can, sports on TV, fast food and gas for their SUVs and they MAY (emphasis on may) do something about it. Leave those inherent human rights in place and, for as long as it affects someone else, they will do NOTHING about it. Sad but true!

  40. GodSend says:

    You’re right, trustno1.

    The good news (?) is that the Grand Depression (already in progress for many) will be a painful wake-up call for most Americans - and they will be looking for someone (or more) to blame and to hang. Bushco, Greenspan, Bernanke and Zionists in general will be DEEP in it! (up to their eyeballs).

    Greenspan, especially, had better make sure that his Israeli passport has not expired!

  43. henryford555 says:

    My response to Nog:

    Exactly.

    The old tactic of self inflicted wounds, as some call it the no-pain-no-gain approach.

    And it doesn’t take much for the psychopaths to commit self inflicted wounds.

    Nobody in his right mind should arrange or continue an ‘honor’ system with the psychopaths.

    Realize the inherent conflict of interest, which is…

    The more we the people are attacked, the more power will be gained by the ‘protectors.’

    The problem is that the ‘protectors’ we entrusted is a gang of psychopaths.

    What will come out from this conflict-of-interest scenario?

    It’s hard enough for a saint to resist.

    Better not to expect this group of psychopaths to respect or honor our trust we placed on them.

  44. [...] Juli 27th, 2007 pada 6:06 am (Uncategorized) AND THEN THERE WAS ONE… The Final Holdout: 9/11 [...]

  45. JoeC says:

    I think there’s a big clue in the original article when you observed that people are starting to question the new things the administration says, but still not question or become upset over past proven lies, along with the pretty clear knowledge that 9/11 was at least a “let it happen” operation.

    Could this be, perhaps, as simple as “You never have a second chance to make a first impression?”

    It’s just part of the way humans are built: First impressions stick harder than second impressions.

    The Bush Administration and the Main Stream Corporate-owned Media know this, so they use it to their full advantage.

    They knew that if they could get the idea of “islamic hijackers with boxcutters” out there first, it would be virtually impossible for anybody to replace this first impression with “inside job” no matter how much evidence eventually turned up…it just takes an so much energy for people to form a second opinion, that most won’t or can’t expend the energy to really do it.

    Same principle was used with Jessica Lynch and Pat Tillman…once they were in the headlines as heroic patriot martyrs, it didn’t matter that the initial stories were found to be patriotic fairy tales…most Americans never learned the truth, which DID eventually get told in both cases.

    In the case of 9/11, I think it would take a huge shock associated with the subject to clear the mass “first impression” programming in order to replace it with another “first impression” of the truth — that there is overwhelming evidence of inside complicity. Without some shocking news to remove the first impression, 9/11 will continue to be a murky, avoided subject in the minds of most Americans — not unlike the lone gunman theory of the Kennedy assassination, which even a deathbed confession from E. Howard Hunt explaining how the CIA did it has failed to overcome.

    In short, the 9/11 Truth movement needs to quit framing their arguments as reactions to the official story which has already left a first impression seared with the shock of the original event, and start presenting the facts framed as shocking, totally new “News”.

    How that can be done, I haven’t figured out yet, but it would need to create a jolt and then supply the relevant information. Maybe one of the 9/11 truth groups could arrange to try to reproduce the melting of a steel beam with a fire fueled by kerosene and office furniture with Paris Hilton strapped to the top…maybe something like that would be enough of a jolt to get the masses to really see the WTC collapses with fresh eyes again…

  46. henryford555 says:

    JoeC,

    Personally my initial reaction was that the towers, since being built so tall, were built with a design compromise. Hence, when subject to high jet-fuel temperature, the towers shattered into pieces like a broken window of a stolen vehicle.

    Do I have this let-bygone-be-bygone attitude? Fortunately I am not exactly like the ducklings in possession of this amazing quality of imprinting (i.e. the first moving thing I see must be my mother; I better follow ‘her’).

    In all likelihood, there will be another first impression, and another first impression - courtesy of the group that brought you the ‘Paris Hilton Live’ to be begin with.

    Remember: The rebuilt Al Qaeda is stronger than ever. Something is cooking…

  47. JoeC says:

    Yep…something is definitely cooking…
    Are at least we are meant to think that something is definitely cooking…who knows with the clowns that are in charge…what mindgames might they be playing…

    I think that Americans have been brain washed and subtly mind controlled by society, Religion, schooling and previous generations.

    Some Americans can’t seem to grasp the lie around 911 because their mind cannot accept that our government could be involved in anything so sinister as killing innocent Americans. It goes against all of our programing of what this country’s government has stood for since the Declaration of Independence.
    The truth of 911 would shatter all of their mental programs because it would conflict with their established and engrained beliefs learned. The truth would be too cruel and the mind will block all things that are unpleasant.

    Because I think one reason for this is the power of narratives over rationality in human thinking, I have been couching my thoughts about this and other related matters in the form of short stories. People are willing to consider a thought in a fictional context that they will not in their own ‘factual’ one.

    As it happens, I posted a new story last night that addresses this very issue. It’s called “Levels of the Game”.

    http://klurgsheld.wordpress.com/2007/08/06/short-story-levels-of-the-game/

    Other than putting myself in a fictional context, I also used other like-to-like events as a frame of reference, to bring myself to acceptance.

    Those like-to-like events are numerous; several events come immediately to mind.

    The 7/7 London Subway Bombing is easier to for me accept because it took place outside of my country, orchestrated by a government other than mine.

    Another like-to-like event was the burning of the Reichstag, again, outside of this country.

    Let’s look closer, at the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. The attack was a lie, but many accepted the fact; hence it’s called an incident, not a conspiracy.

    It’s my hope that the ‘9/11 Conspiracy Theory’ will eventually turn into the ‘9/11 Conspiracy,’ and ultimately into the ‘9/11 Incident,’ seen in the same light as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident.
