“Long before Americans were introduced to the new 9/11 era super-villains called ISIS and Khorasan, senior Obama officials were openly and explicitly stating that America’s “war on terror,” already 12 years old, would last at least another decade. At first, they injected these decrees only anonymously; in late 2012, The Washington Post - disclosing the administration’s secret creation of a “disposition matrix” to decide who should be killed, imprisoned without charges, or otherwise “disposed” of - reported these remarkable facts:

Among senior Obama administration officials, there is a broad consensus that such operations are likely to be extended at least another decade. Given the way al-Qaida continues to metastasize, some officials said no clear end is in sight. . . . That timeline suggests that the United States has reached only the midpoint of what was once known as the global war on terrorism.”

In May, 2013, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a hearing on whether it should revise the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF). A committee member asked a senior Pentagon official, Assistant Secretary Michael Sheehan, how long the war on terror would last; his reply: “At least 10 to 20 years.” At least."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Bipartisan permanent warfare state

This and the Risen interview are excellent counters to the notion that what we've been seeing is simply about mopping up the mess left over by the neocons.


America has never met a war it didn't like. Unfortunate, but that's the history.

October 2014. DOD spent $12,282,757,102+

Out of control?

DOD spent $12,282,757,102+ on 171 individual contracts in October 2014 -

For sure.

This underscores the importance of 9/11 Truth

Good, relevant posts. The "endless wars", the war machine out of control, underscores how important the 9/11 Truth Movement is.

Exposing 9/11 takes down the foundational support beams of these wars. From there it becomes "our own controlled demolition" to the lies propping the wars.


Fresh off Veterans Day and everyone thanking vets for fighting for our freedoms, isn't it ironic that we are losing our freedoms at home? Maybe a good way to get the 9/11 truth message through to those who are still brainwashed is by appealing to the sacrifice of our veterans. Something like how it's shameful that we are giving up our freedoms that so many soldiers paid the ultimate price for. Once they see who is actually trying to take away our freedoms, they might be more receptive to looking at lies about Iraq and 9/11.
