Editor in Cheif of Truthdig Discusses Holes in the Official Story

Robert Scheer: Gaping Holes in the 9/11 Narrative - truthdig.com

Five years out from the attacks, why do we still know so little about what really happened that day?
What we still don’t know about 9/11 could kill us. By “we” I mean the public that has been kept in the dark for five years by a president who may know the truth but has chosen to ignore it. Instead of grappling with the thorny origins of that disaster, George Bush willfully turned the nation’s attention and resources to a totally unrelated and disastrous imperial adventure in Iraq.

Just how unrelated was definitively established last Friday with the belated release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s second report, which concluded that there not only was zero connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, but that Iraq was the one country in the region where Osama bin Laden could not operate.
In short, the most cited source that we have on what happened on 9/11, the much celebrated 9/11 Commission Report, was stage-managed by the Bush administration, just as it has controlled and distorted so much other information.

In light of that sorry record of the propagandistic exploitation of the 9/11 tragedy for partisan political purpose, is it any wonder that large numbers of Americans have doubts about all of it and that a considerable industry of documentaries and investigative reports has sprung up with alternative theories ranging from the plausible to the absurd?

Thanks Al for the heads up!

Bush provoked the 9-11 attacks

The government did not plan it, they did not let it happen. Bush provoked the 9-11 attacks.

I'm going to say this no matter who does not want to see this. The 9-11 attacks appeared as blowback for secret foreign policy between George W Bush and his Republican party and the Taliban terrorists and their Al Qaeda friends. 9-11 did not appear unprovoked. 9-11 happened for a reason.

What did George W Bush do between Jan 21, 2001 and July 2001? He negotiated with the Taliban terrorist government for the right for the US oil companies to buiild gas and oil pipelines across Afghanistan. In July 2001, the Taliban would not go along with any deal after months of negotiations. The frustrated Bush administration warned the Pakistanis in Germany in July 2001 at a diplomatic meeting, that the Taliban refused to attend, that The US would invade Afghanistan unless the Taliban went along with these pipeline projects, and to tell the Taliban this. When the Pakistanis informed the Taliban of the impending invasion, the Taliban did not wait, they got their friends Al Qaeda led by Osama Bin laden and Struck us first.

I doubt that the 9-11 attacks would have occurred if George W Bush had not pressured the Taliban to accept oil pipeline building contracts, under threat of invasion.

John Charles Brisard and Guilliaume Dasquie wrote a book "Forbidden Truth: SECRET US - TALIBAN Oil diplomacy and the Failed Hunt for Bin Laden" You can obtain it from amazon.com

Both Bin Laden and George W Bush bear responsibility for these 9-11 deaths and the attacks that caused them.

That you Mr. Scheer! I knew you had it in you.

Better than nothing, but

Better than nothing, but pretty bad in my opinion.

Can Sheer read? Does he know how to think for himself?

Why does he avoid the deep subject and couch his "argument" in utterly cliched political phrasings?

"In light of that sorry record of the propagandistic exploitation of the 9/11 tragedy for partisan political purpose, is it any wonder that large numbers of Americans have doubts about all of it..."

This is just bs. What about the destroyed evidence, the witnesses who heard secondary explosions in the towers, the free-fall speed, Shanksville, etc., etc.?


This is no time for more wimpy rhetoric from lefty gate-keepers.

Sorry, it's better than nothing, but it's just a few crumbs.
