SHOCK THE SYSTEM -- Let's play 20 questions
Yes, the quest for a new and true investigation of the 9/11 attacks seems like a lost cause. Still, some brave souls go out on a limb and press the issue with politicians and media celebrities. For these brave, persistent souls, I am compiling a list of short, to the point questions to ask...
1. If the president is told, "we're under attack," and he doesn't take on his duties as commander in chief of the military -- is that technically treason ("aid and comfort" to the "enemy")?
2. How many NORAD fighter jets were assigned to protect America on January 20 2001 -- the day Bush took office -- as compared to on 9/11?
3. If the 28 redacted pages of the Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11 implicate the Saudi Arabian government, as Senator Graham has said, isn't it time to expose this and to tell the American people the truth?
4. If America is fighting a "war" on terrorism, then why are they supporting terrorist groups called "MEK" and "Jundullah" right now, as reported by Seymour Hersh in the New Yorker?
5. If both Kean and Hamilton wrote that the 9/11 Commission was "set up to fail" and DID fail to give us the full truth, then why won't Obama get behind a legitmate investigation of 9/11?
6. Why did the US Justice Department support Saudi government's claim of "sovereign immunity," against the families of 9/11 victims in their lawsuit? Isn't this unacceptable if not despicable? In light of the EVIDENCE presented by the victim's families, shouldn't OUR justice department be investigating the Saudis for an act of war against us on 9/11/01?
7. FBI field operatives told us how their investigations of terrorists were blocked by supervisors at FBI headquarters before the 9/11 attacks, and yet these same supervisors were these supervisors were promoted instead of fired -- isn't it crucial that we remove these people from such positions now? Why is Bush's rewarding of incompetence (OR WORSE) left to stand by the Obama administration?
8. With all the warnings of an imminent attack over the Summer of 2001, isn't Bush's utter lack of response in the classroom highly suspicious?
9. Why was Ari Fleischer reported to have held up a sign in the classroom to Bush: "DON'T SAY ANYTHING YET?" (Bill Sammon, Wash. Times) Isn't that an indication they were deliberately stalling for time?
10. If Bush had responded immediately at 9:05 and issued a "shoot down order," could that have affected the Pentagon attack a half-hour LATER at 9:37?
11. Isn't the fact that no air defenses arrived to protect Washington DC after at least 75 minutes of advanced warning of hijackings, as per the FAA, an indication that interference in the nation's air defenses took place? (criminal and treasonous interference)
12. Was VISA EXPRESS a factor in letting in most of the hijackers from Saudi Arabia? Former State Department official Michaal Springmann details how the CIA routinely circumvented US law and allowed "terrorists" to come into the country for military training.
13. Isn't the real "front line in the war on terrorism" the embassies which issue visas to "unqualified applicants" despite the laws and rules in place?
14. Who, specifically, approved the VISAS for the hijackers? What are their names? What happened to them? Have they been investigated? Are they still employed in the same capacity?
15. Why haven't the reports of wire transfers ordered by the head of Pakistani intelligence, Lt. General Mahmud Ahmad been followed up and exposed by investigators? Why isn't Ahmad a wanted terrorist ringleader?
16. Why is the US funding the ISI, Pakistani intelligence (TO THIS DAY), to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars, when ISI is well known for giving money and arms to the Taliban and Al Qaeda!!!!?
17. Why aren't Sibel Edmonds' allegations being actively investigated by the new administration, including black market nuclear proliferation and foreign government corruption of congress members?
18. What was the role of Urban Moving Systems, of Weehawken NJ, an exposed Mossad cell which employed the arrested agents caught celebrating the World Trade Center impacts?
19. Why is there a deafening silence on the discovery of "nanothermite" in the WTC dust? Why isn't this being investigated to the full potential by digging up more dust from the landfill where the WTC debris was deposited?
20. What were the "orders" that "still stand", which was confirmed by Vice President Dick Cheney in the PEOC bunker at approximately 9:20?
21. Were these orders in any way related to Secretry of Defense Rumsfeld who was at that time missing in action and derelict in his duty (like Bush), AND was Rumsfeld's failure to give "approval" to launch interceptors a factor in the stand down of the NORAD defenses?
22. Who was the "young man" that Mineta referred to, and what is his side of the story?
23. Why did the Bush administration decide not to act against Bin Laden during the entire period leading up to 9/11, even as Bush himself was secured from a possible "Al Qaeda attack" in Genoa Italy that July?
24. What about the two hijackers who's drivers licenses listed a US military base?
25. What about the commander of the military language school, Butler, who recalled training some of the hijackers?
26. What about Huffman Aviation and the work of Daniel Hopsicker? Wally Hilliard? 43 pounds of heroin seized with no prosecutions?
Okay, I have more than 20.
Feel free to ADD more sensible questions that can trap a politician into turning dark red and stammering through some sort of unprepared response. Keep growing the list...
