DailyKos Diary Talks of Hunter Thompson and 9/11

9/12/2001: Hunter S. Thompson Saw It Coming

Shortly after Thompson's death, I read Hey Rube, a collection of his columns for ESPN.com. His most chilling column was the one he wrote just hours after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Thompson's prediction of what was to come was uncannily accurate.

An excerpt:

The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now--with somebody--and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives.
It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy.
We are going to punish somebody for this attack, but just who or what will be blown to smithereens for it is hard to say. Maybe Afghanistan, maybe Pakistan or Iraq, or possibly all three at once.
This is going to be a very expensive war, and Victory is not guaranteed--for anyone, and certainly not for anyone as baffled as George W. Bush....He will declare a National Security Emergency and clamp down Hard on Everybody, no matter where they live or why. If the guilty won't hold up their hands and confess, he and the Generals will ferret them out by force.

Yet again the comments are already flooded with supportive comments for questioning the events of 9/11. It is becoming more and more obvious that 9/11 is the hot button for this administration, and deserves a real investigation.

R.I.P. (Hunter S. Thompson

R.I.P. (Hunter S. Thompson ... not meaning the U.S. of A. ... she's still got a pulse). Right on Hunter!

yeah dz, i was noticing that

yeah dz, i was noticing that too tonight. things are really starting to turn...!!!

Hunter S. Thompson thought

yep. i heard Hunter was

yep. i heard Hunter was working on a story about explosives in the towers. he apparently had some hard evidence.

Thompson's interview with

Thompson's interview with some British journalis where he goes into why he thinks 9/11 was an inside job(and this was just months after sept 11th 2001) is chilling, th emp3 is online(and is used in part of the loose change 2e opening)
I read he was either working on a 9/11 inside job book or one about the 1980's washington dc political elite child sex slave scandal...both of which, illustrate how corrupt the powers that be have been over the years.(The Franklin Coverup to me is one of the greatest injustices in America next to 9/11, CIA-drugs, Tuskegee and MK Ultra)
