A New 9/11 Investigation in New York City?

The Voters Will Decide—If the Lawyers Let Them

In a just-released book called Ground Truth, John Farmer, senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission and now dean of Rutgers Law School, declares that at an early stage in its investigation, the Commission discovered that what had occurred that morning — that is, what government and military officials had told Congress, the Commission, the media, and the public about who knew what when — was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue....At some level of the government, at some point in time ... there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened.

It should come as no surprise that the 9/11 Commission conceded to this decision and limited its investigations accordingly. As I wrote in the conclusion to my own book, when it comes to the September 11 attacks and the lies and obfuscations that followed:

It is not necessary to search for hidden conspiracies, because the conspiracy is right in front of us and all around us, and the conspirators are running the country. Those in power in government and business share a tacit agreement that the system must be preserved at all costs, and institutions such as the 9/11 Commission, by their very existence, sign on to this agreement. Political power must be preserved. Economic and business interests must be protected. Allies who serve us by providing the United States with valuable resources like oil or with strategic positions in the world balance of power must be guarded. These things must be done at all costs, even if it means leaving unanswered questions about a catastrophic attack on the level 9/11, and even if it means leaving the American people vulnerable to another such attack in the future....

Yet, realistic as we are about the intractable power of the “system,” the idea remains that this time, things should have been different. Something as enormous as the 9/11 attacks should demand accountability from those who allowed it to happen

Yes...

good article....we need to turn up the heat.

We should also not overlook that Japan just had a historic election...the NeoCons were tossed in favor of the liberal party. Not that I am fan of the liberal party there but...the Japanese politician that has been front and center in the 911 Truth movement is now the number two man in the Japanese congress...I expect he will be turning up the heat on our gobberment to have a real investigation. He has invited several of the 911 Truth members to come to Japan to make a presentation in front of the full Japanese congress...I believe in about 3 weeks. I am sure we will be hearing more about it.

We are winning!

pass the popcorn and the remote please...

Excellent expert analysis

It's finally hitting the fan!

The stench from this rotting corpse of tyrannical power is starting to overpower their cheap perfume.

Now it's up to The People to break out of their media trance and restore the accountability that a Just Power ought to serve Us by.

Great thread L_B!

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Promisekept..nice to see you!

I am now reminded of my new favorite quote that you posted a while back!

********

"At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed. O! had I the ability, and could reach the nation's ear, I would, to-day, pour out a fiery stream of biting ridicule, blasting reproach, withering sarcasm, and stern rebuke. For it is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced."~ Frederick Douglass

and this one is also one of my favorites..so very fitting for today..

"If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will~ Frederick Douglass
