As The Treason Unravels, A Call to Action

Thanks to Jon Gold for the heads up on this one:

After two years of the investigation into Plamegate, the latest political upheaval has hit the proverbial fan. The ruthless nature of the Bush Administration’s dealings with Joe Wilson for revealing one of numerous monumental lies it’s told since the coup d’etat in 2000 can now be clearly seen by all. The retaliation was to expose Wilson’s wife’s status as a CIA agent, which is to commit treason. This comes from an Administration that promised to restore civility to Washington, DC.

However, the larger context must be considered: This Administration fabricated its rationale for invading Iraq. Every reason was a lie. To create the specter of a “mushroom cloud” threatening our very existence, the president’s men ignored the CIA’s discrediting of the forgery, based on a lie that Saddam Hussein was seeking “yellow cake” uranium from Niger. Yet it still wound up in the State of the Union speech as the now infamous “sixteen words.”

After Joe Wilson wrote an op-ed revealing that lie, the Administration conducted a hit operation on his wife, Valerie Plame, by revealing her identity as a CIA agent. This crime is made all the more egregious because it was perpetrated by an administration that claims to be strong on security, against an agent whose role was to work on counter-proliferation issues. They initially said Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff, was not involved. They also said Karl Rove, top presidential aide, was innocent. Both were lies and both were covered up.

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald’s indictment on Friday Oct. 28th comes a few months after the Downing Street Minutes revealed that intelligence on Iraq was fixed to support the agenda to invade.
With all the disastrous lies we’ve been told, and the high level crimes that have been exposed, what can we infer about the most shocking and traumatic event in US history, the attacks of 9/11? What are the odds that we’ve been told the truth? Why did it take 14 months for our government to authorize an investigation which it then tried to obstruct if there isn’t something serious to be hidden from us?

Even the most basic analysis will conclude that there’s no way a multitude of warnings over several years, including high level warnings from 11 foreign countries, could have all been missed. It stretches credulity to accept that some amateur pilots and a team of rogue Arabs with boxcutters could surprise and defeat our multi-trillion dollar defense/intelligence apparatus and hijack four planes simultaneously, hitting major targets which had protections in place that suddenly didn’t function. There is no way that Osama and his crew were responsible for the demolition of Building 7 which lease owner, Larry Silverstein, stated was “pulled.” This is the proverbial tip of the iceberg. All of this adds up to the fact that 9/11 was the most glaring act of treason in history. We all must be aware that to fail to demand answers to the glaring questions and discrepancies is to accept and endorse the official explanation.
