Yesterday, saw the 17th anniversary of 9/11. It was a time to reflect. According to Wikipedia: “The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Additional people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks. Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports in the northeastern part of the United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists …”
The first thing to say is we continue to mourn the deaths of those who died in the attacks, abhor the evil that initiated those attacks and praise the heroism of those who tried to rescue the people trapped etc., some of who lost their lives doing so. The other important observation is that the world changed that day when people saw the damage that terrorism could cause and how vulnerable we all are. Also, it marked the beginning of the USA war on terror that not long after included the Iraq war and a number of other conflicts in the Middle East region, many still unresolved, and now with the huge refugee crisis and the affect it is having not only on the region but most countries in Western Europe in responding. Arguably the war in terror is not only ongoing but the threat today is even greater than in 2001 and we are reaping dire consequences.
I included the memes on the basis that a picture can say a thousand words. Many, and I include myself, doubt the official narrative as it doesn’t fit the facts. It also begs the question there is an alternative explanation, one of which is it was an “inside job” intended to bring about the conflicts we now see. Many have wrote and done documentaries questioning the story the powers that be wish us to believe, one of which is David Icke. He is often dismissed as a deranged conspiracy theorist, but in watching his “David Icke – 9/11 Was An Inside Job” video, I find he raises many important questions and doubts concerning the official story, that as far as I can make out has not been addressed. It is not the only major story attracting conspiracy theories. Fifty five years on, it is looking like the JFK assassination was an inside job. One wonders how many more major events there are where the truth has been withheld.
I would much rather use the occasion of the 9/11 anniversary as one for sober reflection and respectful remembrance, but I cannot dismiss the notion that if there was a conspiracy, that could well have involved high powered figures in and around government with an agenda to bring about havoc and something sinister when it comes to subjugating humanity, then it is a matter of grave concern. My gut tells me that a giant cover up has taken place! While evidence has been suppressed, in time the truth will come out. Those of us who question government and media, when they declare something false to be true, will be vindicated. We have to question!
