"911 fantasists pose a mortal danger to popular oppositional campaigns." -George Monbiot
The Left gatekeepers are at it again. Attempting to "debunk" scientific facts, outright fraud, and the transparent government complicity with the alleged 911 plot and plotters, some influential Leftists (and former critics of the official 911 story) have adopted the official version. When backed against the wall about their change of heart, they resort to sweeping personal attacks and a blatant disregard of the mountains of evidence and testimony involving the greatest unsolved crime of the century.
Monbiot, like fellow Leftists Cockburn ,Chomsky and Goodman have done yeoman work, praiseworthy work, deserving of all the accolades and admiration they've received, for fighting the corporate state, for fighting for the environment, for fighting for impoverished and disenfranchised people around the world. But sadly, regards 911, they somehow fail to see the connection: A soulless political body capable of waging a pre-emptive war causing hundreds of thousands of casualties while spreading radioactive poisons around the world, is EXACTLY the type of machine capable of carrying out---or implementing---the 911 attack.
Monbiot wrote about 911 skeptics, Truthers as they've styled themselves, that they suffer from an "epidemic of gibberish." Monbiot then adds: "Why do I bother with these morons? Because they are destroying the movements some of us have spent a long time trying to build. Those of us who believe that the crucial global issues - climate change, the Iraq war, nuclear proliferation, inequality - are insufficiently debated in parliament or congress, that corporate power stands too heavily on democracy, that war criminals, cheats and liars are not being held to account."
Every Truther I know wants desperately to hold war criminal, cheats and liars accountable. In fact, we've drawn a straight line from 911 to the faked war on terror. Far from being "morons," most of us are skeptics, patriots, armchair detectives, veterans and scholars---following in the footsteps of other skeptics (truthers) like Diogenes, Plato, Paul of Tarsus, Galileo, Tom Paine, Thoreau and two-time medal of Honor winner (and Truther), Smedley Butler.
We do not suffer fools, or government apologists gladly. We do not overlook the mountains of suspicious evidence, of eyewitness reports, of pure scientific data. Indeed many Truthers have become amateur metallurgists, structural engineers, physicists, pamphleteers, logicians, statisticians
Time is on our side. Heretics now, we sleep secure in the knowledge the truth will emerge one day. Time is on our side, as more and more disgruntled (and dying) 911 first responders, outraged former US government officials and knowledgeable insiders come forward.
As the cutthroats in power devise additional war crimes---the predicted nuclear attack on Iran or another false flag 911 "attack"--we Truthers realize our ranks will swell. Inevitably but tragically. Even government apologists like Monbiot and Guy Smith can only concur so long with the official government version of 911, before they've lost all credibility forever.
The desperate, final twenty months of the current criminal regime will likely include further bloodthirsty actions, cementing our case that those in power are responsible for 911. To any knowledgeable Truther, those in power devised a flawed but diabolical plan on September 11, 2001 and nearly got away with the crime. And although a complicit media is doing yeoman like work (take a bow, George) to dampen skepticism, more and more people are asking questions, demanding answers.
The BBC Crime Family
Like most believers in the BBC (Bush, Blair, Cheney) version of 911 events, debunkers claim the White House---George Bush particularly--- is too inept to implement 911. Too dumb. They claim a bungler like Bush, who bungled the Iraq War, would have bungled 911.
Sadly, Monbiot and Cockburn have studied little world history. Consider how a bungled anarchist and second-rate painter grabbed power in Germany (with the backing of bankers and industrialists, Prescott Bush among others) and cemented fascist power there with a false flag operation called the Reichstag Fire. Then this "bungler" masterminded a series of attacks on surrounding countries, conquering and occupying many of them in the process.
When the Left gatekeepers accuse the 911 Truth Movement of being "distracted" in opposition to the military-corporate-media triad, we Truthers can only shake our collective heads. As time passes, those misguided patriots (or disinfo pros), may yet realize that 911 was the golden key to the Pandora's box. They may yet realize the 911 attack was a state-sponsored, state implemented operation carried out by professionals, involving several tiers, several hierarchies of power. Needless to say, when a former German corporal, former imprisoned anarchist, former "bungler" named Adolf Hitler, devised a daring yet diabolical attack plan, those who implemented the plan---Generals Guderian, von Rundstedt and Rommel---were extremely competent and coldly professional.
Time is on our side. Far from being "fantasists posing a mortal danger" we Truthers see the bigger picture. The logical picture. The scientific picture. The historical picture. The overwhelming, incriminating, body-of-evidence picture. Far from embracing the 911 conspiracy as some sort of warm and fuzzy "security blanket," as suggested by a former TV producer, we prefer to be Diogenes with his lantern, Galileo with his telescope, Tom Paine with his Common Sense. Light years ahead of sunshine patriots.
Footnote: I spend a lot of time lately reading a website wholly devoted to 911. I follow the mostly intelligent remarks and the comments by the trolls. The grassroot Spirit of '76 is alive there at www.911blogger.com. If you haven't discovered it yet, go there for your "fantasist" fix. The only mortal danger is to the trolls and disinfo pros.
