9/11 AND AMERICAN EMPIRE: Intellectuals Speak Out, Reviewed


9/11 AND AMERICAN EMPIRE: Intellectuals Speak Out, Reviewed

"...As a member of academia myself, I am buoyed by the caliber of scholars included in the Griffin-Scott volume, particularly in the light of what I consider higher education’s abject paranoia regarding skepticism of the official story of 9/11. As I stated when recently interviewed by Jason Miller at Civil Libertarian Blogspot, professors at the end of their academic preparation often emerge with rigid concepts of how they “should” think or how they “should” teach, to such an extent that they become almost terrified of being viewed as conspiracy theorists and develop what I call “conspiracy phobia” in which case, they become as intellectually stilted and irrelevant as the tormenters of Galileo during the Spanish Inquisition. At one time in history the notion that microscopic organisms called bacteria even exist, let alone foster and spread disease, was considered an outlandish violation of reason and logic, as was the theory that the earth was not flat or that human beings would someday travel around the globe in “flying machines.” Academics of those eras took enormous pride in their ability to think critically and not engage in fallacies of logic, but history has proven that for these individuals, things were anything but what they seemed...

...Currently in so-called progressive discourse about 9/11, there appear to be two perspectives regarding the political, economic, geopolitical, Constitutional, and social significance of the event. The first group believes that 9/11 was used opportunistically by the Bush administration to extend its global domination project and that the administration knew the attacks were coming but allowed them to happen; the second group believes that more than having foreknowledge, the Bush administration, in fact, orchestrated the event. Within these two perspectives, there exist myriad theories regarding the evidence for either allowing the event or orchestrating it.

Some individuals believe that physical evidence is important to analyze, while others do not. Still others believe that some other object besides a plane hit the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, while other individuals are virulently opposed to that notion. I personally believe that a consideration of the physical evidence, although it has virtually all been destroyed and removed from any possibility of examination, is relevant, and I disagree with those who assert that debates regarding the physical evidence are a distraction from the analysis of motive, means, and opportunity. For me, it is not either/or but both/and. Critical thinking demands an inclusive examination of all facets of any crime..."


Older review;

Physical evidence is always important to examine at any murder

scene! So is following the money trail & determining who benefits from the crime.

I am glad we have all these

I am glad we have all these people working with us in a relative spirit of harmony, to realize a definite, and a just and noble purpose.

"We will export death and violence to the four corners of the earth” - George W. Bush

Side note

Where and when is that George W. Bush quote from? I have not seen that one before.

and in the "Just in Time" Department.....


Zawahiri mocks Bush in video message on Iraq, Somalia

Al-Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, defiantly mocked US President George W. Bush's plan to send extra troops to Iraq, saying he should send his entire army to be annihilated.

Just in time, GW! Al Qaeda to the rescue to remind all those naysayers of what EVIL REALLY IS!!!

FBI: We Know Who Hijackers Were


"We at this point definitely know the 19 hijackers who were responsible," he said. "We have been successful in working with our foreign counterparts in identifying places where the conspiracy we believe was hatched as well as others who may have been involved in the conspiracy."

A plea for help...

Authorities in Spain and the Czech Republic have been investigating trips Atta made to both countries earlier this year. Czech officials said Atta met with an Iraqi intelligence agent in Prague in April.

Mueller said the FBI has developed 420,000 leads since Sept. 11, in the investigations of both the hijackings and the mailing of anthrax-laced letters. He issued a new plea to the public for help in solving both cases.

The Current Debate

*Eagerly awaiting up-dates on this breaking news:

911 truthling watch
Steven E Jones/David Ray Griffin vs. Nico Haupt

I love it! Go get them Nico. If we can flush-out the gatekeepers, we are behind you all the way!! I disagree about Griffin, but I do believe St. Marks is perp Central.

There's nothing like speaking truth to power, at least that's how I saw the effectiveness of our final, highly disruptive protestations against the war in Viet Nam, and the- - "4 dead in Ohio..."

I awoke this morning to find myself humming an unrecorded rock song:
"Will they bomb Hannoi Tonight?"
... I then substituted; 'Tehran' with the remaining few chorus.

Today, all that matters to us, (actual Patriots,) is breaking through the public ignorance, which permeates every town here in the deep South.

And, we have yet to draw on that famous Pete Townsend 'roto-sound.' -Shame on you, ASCAP. Shame on you, Hollywood! When will somebody put it to music that we can march to?

First they ridicule you, then you look for better ways to be entertained!
