Make Alexander Cockburn call you a loon

Regarding 9/11, I have a challenge for the blogosphere:

Look at the pictures or videos of the event, if you can.

Building 1, 2, AND 7, all free fall into their own footprints, and the first two explode into massive plumes of dust. No steel core left, nothing. Do you really think these massive skyscrapers would do that without help?

Just tell me and others if you do or don’t.

Discuss it on your blog. Look at this crime and tell us how skeptical you are. Or aren’t. Or that you don’t care, it doesn’t matter.

The idea is to socialize this discussion. No one talks about it. It’s too awful. But I think we must. I’d like to see every independent blogger in this great big virtual sphere lay out their take on it. Do some research. Employ your critical thinking skills. Encourage others to do the same. (you can even do some research right here via the search box at the top of the page. Ignore the first result, as it so happens that Watermelon Slim played two sets, at 9 and 11.)

I think we were attacked on 9/11 by a clique of fanatics in the Bush administration. They followed that up with an anthrax attack on the nominal but potential opposition in congress. That’s what I think. I see lots of comments on blog posts that tell me others see it that way too, but I don’t see it from the authors of so many blogs. Why not?

How can we say nothing on our blogs about this unsolved crime? The commission report did not follow the money, it did not look into building 7, it accepted a ridiculously weak collapse theory. No one connected to the crime has been tried, no evidence has ever been presented.

Maybe you buy most of the official theory. Maybe a 747 can vaporize upon contact with the Pentagon, maybe video from a nearby private businesses was immediately confiscated for national security, maybe Cheney’s war game exercises involving high-jacked planes on the same day was coincidental. But I doubt it.

If I were obscenely wealthy, I’d build an exact reproduction of one of the twins, I’d fill it with the same furniture and equipment and I’d ram a remote-controlled jet of the same characteristics into the same spot and see what happened. I’d like to see that. That building, imho, would still stand, a giant accusing finger pointing at Bush and Cheney saying, “you fucking murderers and your fake war. It is over.”

Some concluding thoughts from by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

Global Research, June 24, 2007

excerpt from "Bush Directive for a "Catastrophic Emergency" in America: Building a Justification for Waging War on Iran?"

This war is not led by the military but by the civilian corporate interests which lie behind the Bush administration. The military takes orders from civilians acting on behalf of those dominant economic interests.

The Wall Street financial establishment, the military-industrial complex, led by Lockheed Martin, the big five weapons and aerospace defense contractors, the Texas oil giants and energy conglomerates, the construction and engineering and public utility companies not to mention the biotechnology conglomerates, are indelibly behind this militarization of America.

In turn, the Worldwide demonization of Islam is part of this profit driven war. Three quarters of the World's oil reserves lie in Muslim lands. (World Oil 2004, see also Michel Chossudovsky, The Demonization of Muslims and the Battle for Oil, Global Research, January 2007 ).

Vilification of the enemies of America, portrayed as fanatic "Islamic terrorists", is part of the Battle for Oil. If the oil were in countries occupied predominantly by Buddhists or Hindus, one would expect that Bush's entire National Security agenda, including the recent "Catastrophic Emergency" Directive NSP 51 would be directed against Buddhists and Hindus.

How to reverse the tide?

The threat of a Second Al Qaeda "Attack on America" is being used profusely by the Bush administration to galvanize public opinion in support of a global military agenda.

Known and documented, the "Islamic terror network" is a creation of the US intelligence apparatus. The "war on terrorism" is bogus. The 911 narrative as conveyed by the 911 Commission report is fabricated.

The Bush administration is involved in acts of cover-up and complicity at the highest levels of government.

Revealing the lies behind 911 would serve to undermine the legitimacy of the "global war on terrorism" which constitutes the main justification for waging war in the Middle East.

Without 911, the war criminals in high office do not have a leg to stand on. Their entire National Security construct collapses like a deck of cards.

What do you think? Consider posting it on your blog.

I've done what I can. Again, see my list of posts on 9/11. I think it's pretty good. Now I'm going on vacation. So no posting here until I get back on July 10. Hopefully, during my travels I'll chance upon an MSM report on a dust-up in the blogosphere about 9/11, framed no doubt as a head-scratcher about those crazy bloggers, the hard left, radical anarchists, or some such other nonsense. But it would be a start.

Thank you for all you do on the net to fight the criminals. 9/11 is an achilles heel. Think about it and see if you agree. Then speak out.

Enjoy the vacation. I dropped some remarks here. Nothing too fancy, though.
