9/11: 8 YEARS AND COUNTING
COMMENTARY ARCHIVES, 11 Sep 2009
Unanswered questions suggest that people within the Bush administration may have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, or were directly involved in it to create a pretext for a new perpetual war against "terrorism" to replace the cold war against "communism."
We want truthful answers to questions such as:
1. Why were standard operating procedures for dealing with hijacked airliners not followed that day?
2. Why were the extensive missile batteries and air defenses reportedly deployed around the Pentagon not activated during the attack?
3. Why did the Secret Service allow Bush to complete his elementary school visit, apparently unconcerned about his safety or that of the schoolchildren?
4. Why hasn’t a single person been fired, penalized, or reprimanded for the gross incompetence we witnessed that day?
5. Why haven’t authorities in the U.S. and abroad published the results of multiple investigations into stock trading that strongly suggested foreknowledge of specific details of the 9/11 attacks, resulting in tens of millions of dollars of traceable gains?
6. How could Flight 77, which reportedly hit the Pentagon, have flown back towards Washington D.C. for 40 minutes without being detected by the FAA’s radar or the even superior radar possessed by the US military?
7. How were the FBI and CIA able to release the names and photos of the alleged hijackers within hours, as well as to visit houses, restaurants, and flight schools they were known to frequent?
8. What happened to the over 20 documented warnings given our government by 14 foreign intelligence agencies or heads of state?
9. Why did the Bush administration cover up the fact that the head of the Pakistani intelligence agency was in Washington the week of 9/11 and reportedly had $100,000 wired to Mohamed Atta, considered the ringleader of the hijackers?
10. Why did the 911 Commission fail to address most of the questions posed by the families of the victims, in addition to almost all of the questions posed here?
11. Why do many engineers, architects and demolition experts say that building 7 which was hit by no plane fell in a matter of seconds in the fashion of a classic controlled demolition, and why did the BBC report on that falling 23 minutes before it actually happened!?
On August 31, 2004, Zogby International, the official North American political polling agency for Reuters, released a poll that found nearly half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of those in New York state believe US leaders had foreknowledge of impending 9/11 attacks and "consciously failed" to act. Of the New York City residents, 66% called for a new probe of the many unanswered questions, including those noted above. Those who are demanding deeper inquiry now number in the millions all around the world, including highly respected authors, professors, architects & engineers, religious leaders, investigative journalists, and peace and justice leaders.
A truly independent investigation of 9/ll is still needed.
1. Mourn all victims of violence.
2. Reject war as a solution.
3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, etc.
5. Seek peace through justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
