Sceptics for 9-11 Truth - Response to William Blum

Sceptics for 9-11 Truth - Response to William Blum

Tuesday, 12 October 2010 13:07

Introduction

In a previous article I have discussed why the 9-11 truth Movement has clearly won the fight (Why 9-11 Truth Has Won). For a time it looked as if it would all go the way of the Kennedy Assassination; the nation afraid to know the truth and a good many powerful people happy to see it kept from them. But the 9-11 issue has implications and public interest much wider than the United States and 9-11 Truth has persisted and grown its numbers. There is still a long way to go but the way is now clear and success is now inevitable, for one very good reason; unlike the Kennedy Assassination there are solid, indisputable facts that completely expose the falsehood of the official explanation. But despite controlled demolition of the official conspiracy theory there are many sceptics who remain doubtful.

The Scepticism of William Blum

One of the most reasoning and articulate of them is William Blum, author of Killing Hope and Rogue State who expressed his doubts in a set of specific points that he felt the 9-11 Truth Movement needed to explain.

So please tell me again: What's the war about?

When facts are inconvenient, when international law, human rights and history get in the way, when war crimes can't easily be justified or explained away, when logic doesn't help much, the current crop of American political leaders turns to what is now the old reliable: 9/11. We have to fight in Afghanistan because ... somehow ... it's tied into what happened on September 11, 2001. Here's Vice-President Joe Biden: "We know that it was from the space that joins Afghanistan and Pakistan that the attacks of 9/11 occurred." 1

Here's Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC): "This is the place [Afghanistan] we were attacked from 9/11." 2

Rep. Mike Pence, the third-ranking House Republican, asserted that the revelations in the Wikileaks documents do not change his view of the Afghan conflict, nor does he expect a shift in public opinion. "Back home in Indiana, people still remember where the attacks on 9/11 came from." 3

This is why it's so important for all of us to continue "preaching to the choir" and "preaching to the converted". That's what speakers and writers and other activists are often scoffed at for doing -- saying the same old thing to the same old people, just spinning their wheels. But long experience as speaker, writer and activist in the area of foreign policy tells me it just ain't so. From the questions and comments I regularly get from my audiences, via email and in person, and from other people's audiences as well, I can plainly see that there are numerous significant information gaps and misconceptions in the choir's thinking, often leaving them unable to see through the newest government lie or propaganda trick; they're unknowing or forgetful of what happened in the past that illuminates the present; knowing the facts but unable to apply them at the appropriate moment; vulnerable to being led astray by the next person who offers a specious argument that opposes what they currently believe, or think they believe. The choir needs to be frequently reminded and enlightened.
