last column, 9/11
- Why Are Americans Afraid Of The Truth? drew the expected death
threats, profanity laced emails, including why I should have my
female private parts spread out in the desert for rats to feed on.
I wonder if their mothers would be proud? Each and every one of those
emailers defended Dick Cheney. Despite their false bravado, all are
cowards afraid of the truth.
really, how much does the average American really know about Dick
Cheney other than the official, sanitized bio? Well, he was
vice-president. He was Secretary of Defense. Back in the 80s, he
served in Congress and in the 70s, was WH Chief of Staff under Gerald
Ford. Cheney is a war mongering neocon who pays little attention to
the U.S. Constitution. Here is an example:
Cheney ordered the CIA to conceal counter-terrorism plan from
Congress: "The former US vice-president Dick Cheney ordered
the CIA conceal a highly secret counter-terrorist programme from
Congress for eight years, possibly in breach of long-standing
oversight laws." Who was Cheney to order the CIA to do anything?
Shadow Government. "Seymour Hersh has been going around the
country telling of a much more extensive assassination program that
reported directly to Cheney. "It is a special wing of our
special-operations community that is set up independently,"
Hersh explained at an appearance at the University of Minnesota (and
repeated later to NPR’s Terry Gross), that “reported directly to
the Cheney office.”
"According to Hersh, “they've
been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA
station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and
leaving." Perhaps we will soon learn that these, too, were part
of Cheney’s ever-expanding portfolio."
Reminds me of
the right's hero, Oliver North. Like so many others, I watched gap
toothed, Ollie, stand up in front of the world and lie to Congress.
Gullible Americans bought his spiel, made him a hero and he's laughed
all the way to the bank since then.
How many of those who
emailed me have actually read the massive tome, the
Iran Contra Report? I began reading it at the fabulous Denver
Public Library when I needed to do research. I set aside time and
read. I finished reading it out in California while doing my research
at the great main library in Sacramento. For those who don't remember
or are too young to remember,
this is an excellent overview:
Report, or Tower Commission Report, was delivered to President Ronald
Reagan on February 26, 1987. The report documented the investigation
into the Iran-Contra affair, a political scandal that rocked the U.S.
government in the mid-1980s.
"In 1984, President Reagan
and other high-ranking U.S. officials covertly arranged the sale of
arms to Iran, an action forbidden under an arms embargo. While the
extent of the presidents involvement is uncertain, at least some U.S.
officials intended that the arms sales would be a trade for the
release of U.S. hostages, held by Iranian-sponsored militants in
Lebanon, and that the proceeds would be used to fund the brutal
"In November 1986, President Reagan
formed a commission led by former Senator John Tower to inquire into
the affair. The Tower Commission Report strongly criticized a number
of U.S. officials, including Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North,
National Security Adviser John Poindexter, and Secretary of Defense
Caspar Weinberger. The commission ultimately concluded that President
Reagan knew about the arms shipment, but that he did not have full
knowledge of many other details of the program, including the
diversion of funds to the Contras. However, the president was
chastised -- both in this report and in a later report issued by
Congress -- for failing to know what was going on in his own
Oliver North is no hero. He's
a liar who worked in a secret government within a government:
1984, Oliver North directly helped draft a plan in 1984 to impose
martial law in the United States in the event of an emergency. This
secret plan would suspend the U.S. Constitution and turn over control
of the government to the little known agency at that time: FEMA. This
plan would appoint military commanders to run state and local
governments. Implementation of this plan would have been triggered by
violent and wide spread internal dissent, disagreement with
government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military
invasion abroad. Essentially, it amounted to a complete and total
suspension of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights."
Ronnie Reagan didn't know about it? Then Attorney General William
French Smith, was so angry over it, he resigned.
know anything about the shooting down of KAL Flight 007? If you spend
the considerable amount of time necessary to research it, there's no
question Ronald Reagan and Secretary of State, George Shultz lied to
the American people and the world. They sacrificed 63 Americans,
including Congressman Larry McDonald, on the alter of geo political
People seem to have no problem believing dictators in
banana republics lying to the people of their country. Of course,
they lie! They have no problem accusing Reagan or Bush of lying if
they're a Democrat. Republicans have no problem accusing Clinton and
Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama of lying. Somehow that is acceptable.
But, to state your opinion based on more than a couple hours of
researching 9/11, and who was the mastermind behind 9/11, that simply
is not allowed. Not if its your favorite Republican.
Americans who fight back against the truth act as if America has
never had traitors within our borders. I guess they aren't familiar
with Benedict Arnold. Hans Max Haupt was convicted of
treason for aiding his son who was a spy for Germany during World War
II. Ben-ami Kadish, Stewart Nozette and Jonathan Pollard were
convicted of spying for Israel. FBI Agents convicted of espionage:
Leandro Aragoncillo, Robert Hanssen, Richard Miller, Earl Edwin
Pitts. Bill Clinton should have been tried for treason for selling
our most sensitive military secrets to the communist Chinese; go

9/11 is a
conspiracy of such monstrous proportions involving rouge elements
within our government that most Americans simply cannot process it,
much less accept facts. In one of David Ray Griffin's thoroughly
researched books: 9/11 Contradictions - An Open Letter to Congress
and the Press, he asks some hard questions for which we have
never received answers. The book recites many live interviews from
that day about explosions inside the twin towers. Here is just one
example, page 247:
Pat Dawson of NBC News gave a report in
which he said: "Just moments ago I spoke to the Chief of Safety
for the New York City Fire Department, Chief Albert Turi. He received
word of the possibility of a secondary device, that is another bomb
going off. He tried to get his men out as quickly as he could, but he
said that there was another explosion which took place, and then an
hour after the....first crash that took place....there was another
explosion that took place in one of the towers here. He thinks that
there were actually devices that were planted in the building."
But, of course, someone like Chief Turi would know nothing about
There was enough prior warning to at least
mitigate the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but that wasn't the plan:
and the Pearl Harbor attack - (One of my older columns on WND)
"One shouldn't believe
everything they read in a book, but in the case of “Day of
Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor” by Robert B.
Stinnett, there can be no denying the awful truth that FDR not only
knew the Japanese were going to attack, but official documents prove
FDR wanted them to strike America first.
"Stinnett spent 16 years doing his research and fighting in
the courts to obtain a plethora of shocking documents under the
Freedom of Information Act – their authenticity cannot be denied.
This link to a
.pdf file provides a few of the official documents, i.e., “It
(official document) directs the Hawaiian U.S. Army commander, Lt.
Gen. Walter Short, to follow an official U.S. government desire: ‘The
United States desires that Japan commit the first overt act.’”
"Pearl Harbor was no surprise. “Day of infamy,” indeed.
"While Stinnett should be commended for his commitment to
expose the truth and help clear the names of those military officers
wrongly blamed, I was shocked by his comment on page 259: “As
heinous as it seems to families and veterans of World War II, of
which the author is one, the Pearl Harbor attack was, from the White
House perspective, something that had to be endured in order to stop
a greater evil – the Nazi invaders in Europe who had begun the
Holocaust and were poised to invade England.”
"There were 2,403 Americans who died at Pearl Harbor.
According to Stinnett, who backs up FDR, those 2,403 Americans were
acceptable casualties in order to take America into war. Stinnett
goes on to say (same page), “Had the facts uncovered in this book
been known immediately after the war ended, and had Roosevelt
explained his war strategies and tactics to the families who lost
their sons at Pearl Harbor, how different American history might be
"I feel confident in saying that the families of those 2,403
Americans slaughtered at Pearl Harbor with the full knowledge of a
sitting president of the United States would not have been
very understanding. I was further shocked by Stinnett’s next
comments (same page), “The truth that has been told here does not
diminish FDR’s magnificent contributions to the American people.
His legacy should not be tarnished by the truth. As with all American
presidents, Roosevelt must be viewed in the total context of his
administration, not just Pearl Harbor.” Quite frankly, I would be
ashamed to say such a thing."
There was more than enough warning about 9/11. Who turned a blind
eye? Bush, Cheney and Condi Rice, to name a few. Always ask: Cui Bono?
as a Pretext for U.S. Imperialism
The 9/11/01 attack
served as a general-purpose pretext for imperialist ventures that
were planned years in advance of the attack. Deployments for the
attack on Afghanistan began within days of the attack. When the
attack failed to produce the capture of the alleged perpetrator of
the 9/11/01 attack, Osama bin Laden, the administration shifted blame
for the attack to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, and commenced its
invasion and occupation of Iraq.
The Project for a New
American Century, a think-tank including of some of the core policy
advisors for the Bush Administration, articulated the need for a "new
Pearl Harbor" in the policy paper Rebuilding America's Defenses
just one year before 9/11/01. The paper also foreshadowed the use of
Saddam Hussein as a pretext for invasions of Central Asia.

title: Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategies,
Forces and Resources for a New Century
authors: Richard Perle,
Paul Wolfowitz, Dov Zakheim, William Kristol, et.al.
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings
revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some
catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor.
"... While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides
the immediate justification, the need for a substantial American
force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of
Saddam Hussein ..."
I also recommend another of David Ray
Griffin's fully researched books, The
New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé.

Stalin's Russia, notes Mikhail Heller, enemies were blamed for
everything; they were used to justify the invasion of Czechoslovakia

Communists were thus able to manipulate Soviet citizens into
supporting government hunts for "terrorists," "traitors,"
and spies, for "liberation wars" for humanity.
Marxist-Leninist strategies, the Russian, Chinese, and U.S. ruling
elites have sought to frighten Americans and other populations with
the specter of ruthless mass terror. They have created enemies and
blamed them for everything including terrorist acts. They have used
them ...to manipulate Americans into supporting government hunts for
"traitors," "terrorists," and these never ending

whole populations into supporting "wars of national liberation"
