A tale of 9/11 TRUTHSubmitted by spankz on Thu, 09/11/2008 - 13:59
On the anniversary of the tragedy that was 9/11 I would like to explain why this weighs so heavy on me.
The day was terrifying, indeed, though I have not come to know how much so until this past year.
I was told to look into it by a few really intelligent people I had met through working on the Paul campaign. At first I thought it was indeed the lunatic fringe infringing on a the just cause of the Paul campaign. It wasn’t. It was simply the truth seekers who had gone farther than I. I say truth emphatically because that’s what the movement wants above all else: Truth. The movement does not claim to know everything that transpired that day, though it does postulate. The truth we do know is that we have been lied to.
We have been lied to and what have the results been? The civil rights destroyer that is the patriot act, a massive shift of power to the worst president this country has ever known, a debt so massive it makes honest accountants(hah) scream bloody murder, and endless war in multiple countries around the globe. All of this has been done under the guise of fighting terrorism. Laughable really, because if this is what we have come to as a country, we have already lost that war by succumbing to so much fear and so many injustices. The war on terror is fought within each of us, in our hearts and minds, not in Afghanistan, Iraq or the Middle East. Catch any of the anti-terrorist measures seen at each of the conventions? "Terrorists" are now those marching for peace. Women attempting to give flowers to police officers were pepper sprayed. "Terrorists" are now the people legitimate questions and grievances. Hundreds arrested without proper charges or just cause. The "War on Terror" is the war on you.
Those are just the raw results of that day.
The day itself, is what truly causes bad dreams.
At the very minimum there are far too many unanswered questions. The families of the victims and the first responders have not had a great number addressed. So here are a few pertinent ones, if you care to ask yourselves.
How do buildings fall at free fall speed through the path of most resistance?
How did building number 7 (the one never hit by a plane) fall in the same way?
How were steel beams, weighing tons, ejected laterally from the building with so much force that they were embedded into other buildings?
How did NORAD have a 100% interception rate prior to 9/11 and then fail four times in one day?
Why does the government refuse, even under the Freedom of Information Act, to release the tapes of the gas station and hotel that captured the Pentagon attack citing "National Security" as their only reason?
Why has Osama bin Laden not been formally charged by the Department of Justice for the attacks of 9/11 but has for others?
Where did the plane in Shanksville disappear to? The Pentagon?
My personal conclusions aside, these are questions that need answering. They need answering because many more have died since and because of that day. Iraq citizens, first responders, and soldiers have died in our supposed solution to that day. They deserve the truth. We deserve the truth.
