9/11 and the Great American Decline

Mr. Ford is careful not to espouse the "inside job" thesis, however his account of two Israeli "journalists" frothing at the mouth over the attacks is new to me

The author begins with his encounter with two Israelis on the banks of the Hudson River as the second tower fell at the World Trade Center, and proceeds through the brief euphoria at "victory" in Iraq, and subsequent reversals in U.S. fortunes. "9/11 may one day be viewed much like the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand, in 1914: as an occurrence that merely served to ignite the inevitable. The Bush regime desperately wanted a global war, and it got one." But rather than ushering in an era of unchallenged American hegemony, the U.S. entered into irreversible decline.

9/11 and the Great American Decline

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

"9/11 was wielded as a kind of weapon to take down the planet."

"So, what do you think will happen now?" The question was posed by the taller of two young Israelis, my sole companions in this section of Liberty State Park on the Jersey City side of the Hudson River, the morning of September 11, 2001.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, there is no consensus outside the United States that Islamist militants from al Qaeda were responsible, according to an international poll published Wednesday.

The survey of 16,063 people in 17 nations found majorities in only nine countries believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks on New York and Washington that killed about 3,000 people in 2001.

U.S. officials squarely blame al Qaeda, whose leader Osama bin Laden has boasted of organizing the suicide attacks by his followers using hijacked commercial airliners.

On average, 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible, 15 percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some other perpetrator. One in four people said they did not know who was behind the attacks.

How NORAD Radar Operators Identified Aircraft Flying Over American Airspace on 9/11 And The Official 9/11 Narrative

To say that communication between civilian Air Traffic Control (ATC) and NORAD was abysmal on the morning of September 11, 2001 would be a massive understatement. As an illustration, it took ATC twenty-three minutes to communicate to NORAD that American Airlines Flight 11 had been hijacked, and in the case of United Airlines Flight 175, ATC informed NORAD of that flight’s odyssey through northeast skies at 09:03, the same minute as Flight 175 impacted Two World Trade Center!

Jesse Goplen brings 9/11 blues to HSU

http://www.eurekareporter.com/article/080910-jesse-goplen-brings-911-blues-to-hsu

Local singer-songwriter and Humboldt State University graduate Jesse Goplen will perform his trademark “Old-Time Country Blues for a New American Century” live at 7 p.m. on Thursday at HSU’s Kate Buchanan Room.

Concertgoers will be among the first to hear new, unreleased tracks from his upcoming CD titled “Cowboy.” Songs like “Cowboy” and “Freedom’s Twilight” are indictments of the post-9/11 era.

“Highway 101” stands out as the lone Humboldt County anthem, while “Didn’t You Know?” asks listeners to consider Willie Nelson’s critique of the official 9/11 story.

“I’m looking forward to a relaxed show where I can really talk about the stories behind my new songs,” Goplen said.

Goplen will also perform songs from 2007’s “September Eleven Blues” and his earlier recordings. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a discussion hosted by 9/11 Truth HSU. There will be a screening of the new 9/11 documentary “Fabled Enemies” following the concert.

The Gift of 9/11

by Scott Creighton

The events of 9/11 unfolded before us in a grand spectacle of shock, emotion, and repetitive images; collapsing burning, jumping, screaming, falling, crying, dying. And we watched, helpless as a baby lost in a world of wolves, as black clouds, 10 stories tall, glided down the streets consuming everything we had once known and cherished about ourselves. We watched people trying desperately to escape the gathering gloom. They ran, and then we ran. We ran right into the waiting arms of Big Brother. Right where we were supposed to run. Where we would be ...safe.

But we aren't safe, are we? Far, far from it.

We came to realise on that day just how far some would go to advance their ideologies. We came to see the world in a new, dangerous light; where being an "American" meant no more to these terrorists than being anything else. We knew in a flash that we were within their grasp and that our lives meant nothing in contrast to their greater scheme of things.

And thus, we became ants on 9/11. Nothing more. The delusion of democracy would soon come to an end and this "great experiment" in self-rule would wither and die. Just like the terrorists wanted.
