Obama Invokes 9/11 to justify more troops

Obama Invokes 9/11 to Explain Afghanistan Troop Surge

by Jason Leopold - Truthout

"We did not ask for this fight," the president said. "On September 11, 2001, nineteen men hijacked four airplanes and used them to murder nearly 3,000 people. They struck at our military and economic nerve centers. They took the lives of innocent men, women and children without regard to their faith or race or station. Were it not for the heroic actions of the passengers on board one of those flights, they could have also struck at one of the great symbols of our democracy in Washington, and killed many more."

Using the 9/11 attacks to justify an escalation could end up backfiring on Obama... (read more)

So if 9/11 is of such fundamental importance, why can't we investigate the event?

Clearly, the Truth about 9/11 threatens the ideological foundation of US-led "interventions" in that part of the world, if not the entire edifice of the West's militarised, hegemonic foreign policy.

Obama lost America

last night.

peace & 9/11

he has done more than to just lose our nation, but has shown how the deep dark 9/11 agenda is proceeding, and how the peace movement that had abandoned demanding a call for a real investigation, resulted in deadly consequences and misleading for peace and justice.


Barrack Hussein Obama is a MASSIVE LIAR and is Complicit in Mass Murder and the coverups of 911.

He has innocent blood on his hands just like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld etc.

This man is going to face judgement one day either from God or from History itself once the Truth comes out.

Just like Nero burned Rome, the Military Industrial
Complex burned the Towers for their own agenda.

Onward empire is their call.

I am personally disgusted, disappointed and furious that President Obama who has PERSONALY been approached by a number of people on 911 Truth, WeAReChange included and WHO definitely knows the truth has decided to sell his soul to the Military Industrial Complex.

Judgement awaits - either from God or History.

A Shameful day for the 44th President of these United States of America.

Alfred Noble must be turning in his grave.

Why O Why do we have so MANY liars out there?

A sad day for Freedom, Truth and Justice.

And this man was a Constitutional Professor?


The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

Accessory after the fact

OBAMA is now, certifiably, a shill for the military industrial complex and a tool for the globalist bankers. Continuing an illegal war based on the Big Lie of 9/11. The world knows it was a false-flag attack--and he is now an accessory after the fact.


Executive Branch Corrupted For Years

Recent presedential "selections" have likely been no accident.

Bush was the perfect president to lead the nation into premeditated war - a plain talking cowboy hat wearing western-like icon.

But Obama seems to have been more carefully considered ... a rock star straight from Madison Avenue who seems to borrow from JFK, MLK and Che in order to sell the unsellable - continued wars to his leftist base and the apparent hoax of man-made climate change and the intended wealth extraction from the public that will result.

Obama (or any president) is a walking rubber stamp for policies formed by private organizations that do not operate in the public interest.

Obama is really no different

Obama is really no different from any other American president in both lying and promoting imperialist war. Obama and Bush are not the root of the problem. The culture which is the U.S. (historically, presently, and as long as we allow it to continue) is the problem -- a culture of imperialism, occupation, domination, control and plunder for the benefit of an economic elite.

President OBombA

What a %µ£$@### $$$@##* FARCE!

Gotta love the double-speak. Right there in the first paragraph..."bring this war to a successful conclusion". Riiight!!!!! But first, we've still got a lot people to sacrifice!

Let's all get out the tissues now because you can bet they'll be deploying some of them, and showing it on the national news, just as others are putting presents under their trees. Oh, sure. What better way to boost patriotism than to watch your fellow citizens make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Leave your family at Christmas so you can go off and start killing people on the other side of the planet just because someone in a uniform told you to. Are we, as a nation, that feeble in the head???????? Who wants to bet one of the people mentioned in the propaganda piece, scripted, produced and fed to the networks, will feature "John A Soldier, 23, father to John Jr. 3 years old." John's wife, Jane A Soldier, 22, is teary because little John Jr is now able to appreciate the excitement of Christmas and (choking back tears) Daddy won't be here to share it.

Oh how sad.

On every level.

Apparently we ARE that feeble in the head. So feeble, in fact, that OBombA, well not OBomba exactly, but his handlers who manage the script writers, felt the need to remind us all again just why we're doing this. 9/11 Al Qaeda 9/11 terrorists Al Qaeda 9/11 9/11 terrorism 9/11. Al Qaeda is mentioned 23 times in 8 pages! We are not only feeble-minded, but hard of hearing.

OBombA says "The wrenching debate over the Iraq war is well-known and need not be repeated here"

Ok so maybe it's not that bad. They give us some credit. They know we know that Iraq is a horrible mess. So why bring it up???

I am so disgusted.

Shakespeare sure caught on pretty early. when he wrote, "All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players."

Wrenching deception

'"The wrenching debate over the Iraq war ...'

Imagine a debate in which one side lied, the other side called them on it and was shown to be right, but the liars prevailed anyway. And Congress continued to pass the needed appropriations. Some 'debate'.

Great post!

This is a really great thread...you guy's and gal's seem to think your president is a puppet; well ours is a suck hole and the elites pet!

Time for "change" it appears, one term or less it appears? Impeachment is now called for?

Regards John

The INSANITYof America's Endless Wars of Empire-The Terror Wars cannot be stopped without so called progressive alternative news sites coming out with the full truth about 9/11. As long as Truthout, Alternet, Kos, Buzzflash, Democracy Now and most others hide the TRUTH and perpetuate the FRAUD, nothing will change. Come out with the truth Truthout or change your name.

abomination obama nation

abomination obama nation declares war
using false pretense too horrific to ignore

while tens of thousands (no longer people),
but troops, ordered to preserve poppy plants,
dark economies, energy resources, while law
takes order a foot, or two..

soldiers crawl under site - killing being killed,
and told that to justify such a decision to
invade and occupy 9/11 is implicated into
mind altering imagery, denial is its deadly
sound, as people are told to trust untruth,
or we will and can kill you.. or better yet,
don't think of it.. live day to day..

i remember buildings falling like no other time..
i remember resistance to investigations
and overt cover-up..
i remember non-existence of science
in its manipulation, government reports
miss smoking gun evidence..
i remember anthrax sent to media
and Democrats..
i remember seeing explosions, plumes
over Baghdad, heated depleted uranium
pressing on populations infiltrating
generations destroying innocence.forever?

the fool's errand is to rescue the queen,
while we know nine eleven scorches truth
within usa sponsored terrorism, home grown,
Able Danger, or patsies as the mission
goes dark and deep

from world war 2 to endless warm CIA,
smokescreening kennedy killers with
those bought to serve.. the devil doers..
sheeple sleep, and every so often
wolves raid the cavern dark and deep
to control secrets..
but genocide on the way to abyss
is not logical thinking..
while Shakespeare said it so simply,

"One touch of nature
makes the whole world kin."

where have we gone;
and what have we forgotten?

Deep words, brother.

With you in the struggle,
WeAreChangeLA - http://www.wacla.org
I work for the 9-11 First Responders, the 9-11 victims, and all those who are being slaughtered and tortured because of 9-11.

thank you bruno..

a struggle it is.. thank you for being there..
always.. it is our real brothers and sisters who help us continue with some dignity and integrity, as our so-called representative government commits treason, knowingly or unknowingly. i got the following from cynthia mckinney.. and posted with poems, quotes, etc, on my site, Life Rhythms poetry blog

"Many in the special interest press are cynically reporting the President's speech tonight as an "Afghanistan exit plan." We have now reached the point where those who make and interpret current events think they can make us believe that war is for peace, ignorance is strength, slavery is freedom, and lies are the truth. Well, we know the truth, and we will not rest until every drone is stopped and no more bombs are dropped. We will not rest until peace is won. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said there comes a time when we do what we must because our ultimate measure is not where we stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where we stand at times of challenge and controversy. At this time of challenge, we are clear: we will not give up and we will not stop."

- Cynthia McKinney

"Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our Fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
-- Abraham Lincoln

yes, it's hard to bear

as you watch so many oblivious and lying to others and most of all themselves. What is the cost of these lies?
I think it may consist of nothing less than our humanity....

Thank you powerful and moving!

I was really riding that poem to the beat of "9/11 Truth Now!" shouted on the street;)

9/11 24/7 UNTIL JUSTICE!!

9/11, 9/11, 9/11

LIAR, LIAR, LIAR. I haven't yelled at the TV this much since Bush was in office.

P.S. My cat has come out of hiding and I have apologized (to my cat).

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.


isn't the word for it. This Obama asshole makes Bush look like a saint. Well he showed his true colors. It sure didn't take him long.

It is not possible to give a war monger a Nobel Peace Prize.

We gave him his chance !!! He has now made himself complice to Bush's war crimes.

It is not possible to give a war monger and complice to a recognised war criminal the Nobel Peace Prize 2009 ! We should ask for the dimission of the Nobel Peace Committee !

This isn't the first time...

Last time he sent troops to Afghanistan, he did the same thing. Barrack OBusha.

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? The facts speak for themselves.

Dennis Kucinich Challenges Congress

Is the timing for a broad coalition to stop the war policy funding? This following interview by Amy Goodman of Dennis Kucinich shows it as a possibility.. But if they could stop the funding.. will another emergency emerge to mislead and betray?!?

December 2, 2009 - Democracy Now!

Rep. Kucinich on Afghanistan War:

"We're Acting Like a Latter Day
Version of the Roman Empire"

As President Obama unveils his plan to escalate the war in Afghanistan, we speak with Ohio Congressmember Dennis Kucinich. “The United States is going deeper and deeper into debt,” says Kucinich. “We have money for Wall Street and money for war but we don’t have money for work…for healthcare. We have to start asking ourselves, ‘Why is it that war is a priority but the basic needs of people in this country are not?’”

To watch, listen, read:

Thanks for the post, Jonathan

Listening to Kucinich challenge Obama's decision is reminiscent of Ron Paul's challenges to Bush. Encouraging, yes, but discouraging that it is such a small minority voice. As with Ron Paul, Kucinich makes so much sense it goes over most American's heads because accepting that he is right means accepting that we are all being raped and abused.

A little off topic, but listed right after Kucinich on the DemocracyNow web page is Andrew Bacevich, who like Kucinich states his opposition to Obama's decision. As a FYI for everyone out there, Bacevich was asked by someone (not certain who) at Boston University to present an opposing view to David Ray Griffin when he spoke at Boston University last April. He is certainly not a truther, but he declined and Griffin was able to make his presentation at BU unopposed. As we gain ground in the higher levels of public discourse, it seems, as DRG and others point out, no one wants to challenge us. So we're winning, I guess, and hopefully it's just a matter of time (short, i hope) when Obama supporters AND detractors will have to deal with the reality that these wars are just plain wrong and the reasons we are there are fabricated and based on lies and manipulated "intelligence." Let's hope Kucinich's message strikes a chord in the hearts and minds of average Americans and that destruction of the false left/right paradigm is hastened, which Kucinich clearly articulated.

accepting that...

"[...] makes so much sense it goes over most American's heads because accepting that [...] is right means accepting that we are all being raped and abused."

-- sums up what the 9-11 truth movement is up against.
