Dennis Kucinich Calls for 9/11 Truth and Reconciliation

Dennis Kucinich Calls for 9/11 Truth and Reconciliation

On September 11, 2010, Congressman Dennis Kucinich published a video message on YouTube calling for "9/11 truth and reconciliation."

Kucinich is a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives from Ohio 10th district and is a former candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2004 and 2008 elections.

Dennis Kucinich Calls for 9/11 Truth and Reconciliation

"We will never be able to recover from the tremendous blow which struck this Nation on 9/11 if we do not unfold the truth for the American People.

The truth is, in the name of retaliation for 9/11, we attacked a Nation which did not attack us. The truth is the war against Iraq was based on lies. Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction, had no capability or intention of attacking the United States, had nothing to do with Al-Quaeda as well as 9/11.

The truth most me known. And those who led the United States at that time, who took us on the path of continuous destruction, must be held accountable if we are to ever have this terrible burden of 9/11 transformed to a place where America can regain its role as a Nation among Nations.

We separated ourselves from the World's community in the name of security. We invaded and occupied Afghanistan, a country who's government is hopelessly corrupt that we think the only way we can prop it up is to participate in the corruption.

That is not what America is about. We need the truth to be told about Iraq and about Afghanistan. We have a right to defend our Nation. But it's the truth which is a defense and the truth which sets us free.

[...]

We must reclaim our willingness to stand for what's right in America and not be fearful to challenge those who have a totally different agenda that has nothing to do with the truth.

Truth and reconciliation. This is time for us to start this process that can bring us together, that can reclaim the unity which is a powerful force in America, that can reclaim the love which we have for each other, that can make it possible for us to reconnect with the world community. Not based on the force of our arms but based on the power of our integrity. "

Hey, do you think Kucinich read my call for Truth and Reconcilliation from 2006?
Here's a web site I made at that time:

http://www.brightpathvideo.com/ThePlan/Truth&R.htm

From that site:

Nelson Mandela will go down in history as the most enlightened leader of a modern state, chiefly because of the work on South Africa's "Truth and Reconciliation" legislation. He recognized the value of founding government on truth rather than power, on forgiveness rather than revenge. In so doing, he helped birth the only effective model for the modern state.

Poor poor

Kuchinich could be leader of 9/11 Half-truth Movement

We don't need truth & reconciliation

We need truth & accountabilitty

We need all three

This was a great message from Kucinich. He was the only politician currently serving I know of that used the word "truth" about 50 times in his 9/11 message.

The reality is we need all three: Truth, Accountability and Reconciliation.............. in that order.

From my experience with politics this is massive!

There is no bad about this, his door just opened!

I can hear the big tent conspiracy theorists moaning about this "lame" attempt by Kucinich at being a 9/11 truther. Without entertaining a thought that Dennis just welcomed us all into the biggest tent on the planet, the US political mainstream?

Be grateful for statements like this for they normalize our cause and provide the context to moving forward.

Kind regards John

al Qaeda again

I agree its good he says something. All publicity is good publicity and this has always been true even when our cause is viciously attacked in the mainstream.

Let's say Kucinich asked himself the following question:

"How can I position myself, so that when the real truth about 911 comes out, I'll be able to say, 'Look! I called for 911 Truth! See, I knew all along!' without actually saying anything right now which would imply that 911 was a deliberate inside job or undermine the Official Conspiracy Theory in any meaningful way."

Then the video would provide a pretty good answer to the question. In one sentence, what Mr Kucinich said is, "The Iraq war is a lie because there weren't any WMD, and the Afghan war is a lie because it was Al Qaeda, not the Afghan nation, which attacked us on 911."

Surely you don't want us to become part of a bland, uncritical cheer squad for people who are too compromised to speak the REAL truth of 911? I DO welcome the video, but I welcome the inevitable criticisms too. As I see it, if it perpetuates the OCT, then it doesn't even qualify as a limited hangout. This message is NOT about 911 Truth! If we don't point this out and discuss it openly, it could come back and bite us. Anyone who gives life to this myth is not helping us.

The call for reconciliation and talk of 'national integrity' and 'moral authority' seems premature given that the crime itself has not been identified or acknowledged by Mr Kucinich.

Same ol' message

This is the same ol' message Kucinich has been saying for the past 7 years, since the United States invaded Iraq. The problem with him uttering "9-11" and "truth" again and again is that the people who listen to him will think that's what the "9-11 Truth" movement is about, blaming Al Qaeda and not all of Afghanistan, etc etc

A sitting congressman even uttering "9/11" and "truth"

A sitting congressman even uttering "9/11" and "truth" in the same sentence is perhaps a tiny fracture in a weakening dam. I'm encouraged. I do wish you could come out more directly, but I'm not in your shoes buddy. DK is a brave patriot trying to work within the "system" if you could call this Orwellian farce a system.

If Only

Washington is inundated with sell-outs, cowards and frauds. How corrupt it has become. If only half in Congress had the fortitude and uncompromising steadfastness of Kucinich, our task would be so much easier. Even if Kucinich falls short of the ideal (and I'm not saying he does), we need many more of his kind.

Thank you

Mr. Kucinich

Thank you Mr. Kucinich

You speak with dignity and class. Moreover, we know how to read between the lines.

This guy has had my vote for years!

I'd like to see him with Ralph Nader and Robert Bowman start the new truth party! Oh what a wonderful world this could be!

HUGE

DK knows what's up!!!
