What We've Become
It's a sad state of affairs when a country is more concerned with the end results and less concerned about the lies that enabled those results to occur. Let us take a short walk back into history to the time of September 11, 2001. For those of you who weren't aware and for those of you who have forgotten, here are a few interesting events:
1. Four days before September 11th, Jeb Bush called up the National Guard in Florida: Executive Order Number 01-261 WHY? If there was no knowledge that we were going to be attacked, why would Jeb Bush declare "martial law" in Florida four days before 911? Could it be because he knew an attack was imminent and he knew his brother was planning a trip there on that very day?
2. There were news reports that the Government never suspected or even thought that a plane would crash into the Pentagon. However, in November 2000, the Pentagon simulated just such a scenario: Contingency planning Pentagon MASCAL exercise simulates scenarios in preparing for emergencies
Furthermore, there was a simulated plane crash planned for the morning of September 11th by the National Reconnaissance Office: Agency planned exercise on Sept. 11 built around a plane crashing into a building
3. The whole timeline of Bush's day on September 11th has many holes. Reports are changed many times, Bush's own recollections do not make sense, and even when Bush left Florida, he wasn't given fighter escort and yet, Cheney was rushed down into one of the underground bunkers. Think about that. The President of the United States is flying in Air Force One from Florida without any fighter escort when the nation is under attack, all the while the Vice President is getting full protection at the Pentagon. Here is an interesting website that has done the hard work of gathering news sources from that day and constructing a time line: An_Interesting_Day: President_Bush's_Movements_and_Actions_on_9/11
Here is another interesting site that discusses some of the mysterious links prior to September 11th: Did Some People Foretell the 9/11 Attack on America? Early Mysterious Signs, Previous Knowledge, and Premonitions.
4. If most of the "hijackers" were from Saudi Arabia, why did we go to war against Afghanistan? Oh I know, Osama-boogey-man and his Al Qaeda crew holding up in Afghanistan. And yet, Osama was CIA trained as was his terrorist group to fight against the Russians during the Cold War. Would it surprise you to know that there was an ulterior motive for fighting in Afghanistan? Check out the following websites and articles:
Taleban in Texas for talks on gas pipeline December 4, 1997
Enron, the Bush administration, and the Central Asian war February 7, 2002
5. And finally, we have been lied to about the war with Iraq, that it was first about WMD, and then it was about liberating the Iraqis. Although both of these are viable reasons (Iraq did once have WMD and the people did need to be freed from the dictatorship of Saddam), the evidence is overwhelming that OIL is the main reason for going to Iraq. Oil wells were the first to be secured and the Ministry of Oil was protected from looters. And then the report came out last week about the coalition gaining control of the oil in Iraq.
This is what we have become: blinded to all the lies constantly being fed to us by the Bush Administration to the point of believing the lies. Which lies are you willing to believe next?
