Letters to the editor: Evidence of terror
Good stuff, keep em coming!!
None of the U.S. or British terror plots and alerts has amounted to much â€“ except more fear, loss of liberty and war.
Recently, "terrorists" in Canada allegedly plotted to decapitate Canada's prime minister. Then, squatters in Miami plotted to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower with explosives.
Let's not forget ex-gang member Jose Padilla, who sits in prison for years without trial because he supposedly thought about making a dirty bomb.
Now we have liquid bombers from London.
The "War on Terror" began on 9/11/01 when three skyscrapers in Manhattan were demolished with pre-positioned explosives, the most logical explanation for their collapse ( www.911review.com/articles/griffin/ nyc1.html).
Did al-Qaida have that capability? No. Al-Qaida was defined as we know it when New York prosecutors sought to try Osama bin Laden under the RICO Act back in January 2001 (read "Al Qaeda" by Jason Burke). However, al-Qaida remains more idea than network, attracting some angry Muslims partly because of our militarized response to them.
Please see the BBC documentary "The Power of Nightmares" to learn how U.S. neo-conservatives and Islamist radicals create this conflict, and read David Ray Griffin's "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" to understand why the 9/11 myth doesn't fit the available evidence.
