While I agree that there are organized groups of violent people, which the media has lionized with the name “terrorist,” who should be dealt with as any aggressor against the US, i.e., with places such as Gitmo, etc., how will you feel when the truth finally comes out about 9/11 being a US secret operation to allow us to go to war in the Middle East?
Things like the UK war memo are only a foreshadowing of this truth. This is not just crackpot conspiracy theory. It is the only logical explanation for how the “terrorists” were allowed to strike both the NY and DC targets concurrently. Okay, I concede that gross incompetence on our part could also be a viable explanation, but surprisingly, I don’t think honestly think we are indeed that incompetent at defending ourselves, given the gross overspending on our military as it is. We have the best toys in the world and we surely know how to use them.
On the morning of 9/11/2001, I stood in the parking lot at work with the rest of my co-workers, and I said to one of them, “Today is not the worst day. The worst day will be when America learns of the truth behind how this event was allowed to happen.”
That day is still coming.
Daria Coard, 37, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on Thursday, bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed.
“Today was the first day there was not the extra security,” Coard said. “We were protecting below. We had the ground covered. We didn’t figure they would do it with planes. There is no way anyone could have stopped that.”
The emphasis in the quote is mine: when that one seemingly innocuous sentence was originally published, it should have been a huge clue as to the true nature of what happened on 9/11. Crashing two jet planes and burning jet fuel alone could not have been sufficient to cause the damage to the Towers that we saw on September 11. This was a planned demolition, whether you still believe it was done by foreign terrorists, or domestic ones.
So, what of all this conspiracy theory about there being bombs responsible for what we saw on 9/11? Just because there was reduced security by means of bomb-sniffing dogs, that doesn’t immediately mean that bombs were involved, right? Sure, except for this recent article by Greg Szymanski, titled “Second WTC Janitor Comes Forward With Eye-Witness Testimony Of ‘Bomb-Like’ Explosion in North Tower Basement, published just a few days ago on July 12, 2005. I suspect that whoever is actually behind what happened on 9/11 didn’t anticipate there actually being any survivors from the sub-basement levels of the Towers to come forth and tell their story about what actually happened on that day, but there apparently are. Here’s what I think is a particularly relevant quote:
In the 2002 taped statement, Sanchez recalls, at the same time Rodriguez and the others heard the explosion, being in a small sub-level 4 workshop with another man who he only knew by the name of Chino when, out of nowhere, the blast sounded as the two men were cutting a piece of metal.
“It sounded like a bomb and the lights went on and off,” said Sanchez in the tape recording. “We started to walk to the exit and a huge ball of fire went through the freight elevator. The hot air from the ball of fire dropped Chino to the floor and my hair got burned,” said Sanchez in the tape recording. “The room then got full of smoke and I remember saying out loud ‘I believe it was a bomb that blew up inside the building.’
The article goes on in more detail, indicating that there may also be other survivors from the basement who can further corroborate this story. Obviously, this could be the “UFO sighting phenomenon,” where people will claim to have a shared traumatic experience because they need some way to rationalize what they experienced with an explanation, but the plausibility of the explanation — that bombs were detonated in the Towers’ sub-basements — while something we don’t want to believe, is finding more and more evidence that supports it.
Over two hundred years ago, this country was formed by a group of people who were known as “Patriots.” These people fought against the rule of a government that didn’t serve its people. What it meant to be “a patriot” back then was to support the revolution in overthrowing the former government. It meant fighting against huge odds because to continue to live the way things are would be far worse than trying to overthrow the government. It was downright treasonous to be a patriot, but these people did it because that’s what they felt was the right thing to do. They risked everything because they couldn’t go on living the way they were — they were pushed past a point.
Today, the words “patriot” and “patriotic” get thrown around, but in the same breath with things like the “PATRIOT Act” and “Homeland Security” — implying loyalty and support of our current government — but when and where did the meaning change? Perhaps it really hasn’t. Perhaps there will be a new generation of patriots who will overthrow this government and install a new one whose interests, once again, lie with the people it represents. They will be fighting against huge odds, and be treated as traitors — maybe even labelled terrorists — and will risk everything for something they believe in. But, how many 9/11’s will it take before the American people are pushed past their point and become true patriots? We will see.
