9/11 and The Just War

by Scott Creighton (archived repost from Sept. 11th, 2008)

 One hour after the first plane struck the North Tower on Sept. 11th 2001, the media began to “teach” us that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda were responsible for the attacks.

They have, for the most part, never questioned that conclusion despite mounds of evidence to the contrary. We are told we must accept their story as truth, we must teach their story to our children as gospel, and we must revere the very mention of their story, ”The Global War on Terror”, as we do our flag, our anthem, and our troops.

All this based on… one suitcase that just happened to have all the evidence in it, as well as the hijackers last will and testament (that he tried to take on the doomed plane with him, for some reason), the water-board induced “confession” of a ring leader that took 5 years (the FBI never allowed the 9/11 Commission to interview him or the people that interviewed him, or even see the interrogation tapes themselves because they got burned up by accident), and a grainy video of a fat bin Laden (that has never been confirmed by the CIA or the FBI as authentic. Like they did with his last real video where bin Laden says he didn’t attack us on 9/11).

As the FBI’s manufactured case against Dr. Ivins falls completely apart right before our eyes, and the story of the civilian killings in Afghanistan reveal not only the fact that we didn’t even target ‘terrorists” but that Fox News and their “reporter” Ollie North just completely lied about every aspect of the incident to cover up for the Pentagon, as all these things unfold like the countless lies that come before these… we are still forced to listen to Obama and Biden and the myriad of “progressive” sites rage on about “The Just War"

NIST’s report on the collapse of WTC 7 (just released) hinges on something that has never happened in history before or since, to explain the reason that building came down. And even though there are countless reports of explosions by the witnesses and first responders (some of which you can clearly hear on videos from that day) NIST makes a point to claim that they never tested for explosive residue in the remains of any of the WTC buildings. Instead, they turn over that part of the investigation, to a controlled demolition company that had been brought on site right after the buildings fell.

How many Afghan lives were lost in the wake of 9/11? Countless. How many children left without parents? How many parents left without children? How many homeless, crippled, crushed by staggering poverty, lost in the spiral of heroin addiction? How many people from that area hate our guts for what we did in our “Just War”? Well, that grows exponentially everyday as Bush lies about how he feels bad for the innocent civilians hurt by this war. It was a lie to start with, when he chose to “Shock and Awe” a nation that had done nothing to America except stand in the way of his oil profits.

And just because Americans are too stupid and self-absorbed to understand that fact doesn’t mean the rest of the world is.

This site wrote over a year ago about the root cause of 9/11 being grounded in the Caspian Sea Basin and the energy spoils there for the taking. And Dick Cheney this past week has been touring the area and pressing the flesh of oil company elites embedded there now, thanks to 9/11. Their projected profits from that region will spill over to buy a new generation of politicians and influence, and the Trans Afghan Pipeline will carry the spoils of war straight through Afghanistan and Pakistan, to the waiting arms of BushCo and friends.

We pledge a billion dollars to prop up a regime in Georgia that attacked it’s own on Aug. the 7th, the day the rest of the world watched the opening ceremony of the Olympic games. “We are all Georgians now.” our media tries to tell us. Our “leaders” Obama, Biden, Palin, and McCain all swear undying loyalty to the people and the regime of Georgia in the face of the “unwarranted” attacks from Russia.

This Georgian “democracy” that killed some 2000 of its own citizens Aug. 7th2008 and was so brutal in Nov. of 2007 in their crushing of a peaceful demonstration that even this criminal administration had to distance itself by condemning the act. This Georgian “democracy” corrupted to the core by their pipeline profits and GWOT money, just like Pakistan, were trained and met secretly with Cheney’s people just before the “Russian invasion”. But are those the stories coming from our leaders? No.

One hour after the first plane struck the North Tower on Sept. 11th 2001, the media began to “teach” us that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda were responsible for the attacks.  This is the root of the Long War; the Just War; the Global War on Terror. This war will stretch across the globe and will be fought pre-emptively where-ever there is profit to be made. All those who resist are terrorists. Al those who dissent are “with the terrorists” and they deserve the treatment they get.

This war will create an elite wealthy class beyond any in our imagination and their subservient minions that will play their roles and do the bidding of their masters no matter what it takes. And it all hinges upon a clear and present lie that any cub reporter given two weeks and internet access could blow wide open.

The Just War had killed tens of thousands of innocent people, and tortured untold numbers in secret black sites. It has crippled economies leaving them ripe for the picking by the “Disaster Capitalists” that helped plan all of this. They will not stop for their Just War creates new “terrorists” where ever it goes. It is the long war, the endless war, and it will not stop at our shores; as we have already been witness too. For this form of “justice” needs the boot of the soldier not a jury of twelve to enforce it.

One hour after the first plane struck the North Tower on Sept. 11th 2001, the media began to “teach” us that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda were responsible for the attacks. And they have not stopped since, nor will they stop, ever.  They plan now on ways to teach our children about 9/11. They are laying out the curriculum to teach all across this county ‘the truth” about 9/11, while they leave it to the counties whether or not to even teach evolution, they will damn sure teach “the right facts” about 9/11.

On “Progressive Acceptance of The just War”:
 Sen. Barack ObamaWhen John McCain said we could just “muddle through” in Afghanistan, I argued for more resources and more troops to finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11, and made clear that we must take out Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants if we have them in our sights.” Acceptance speech.

 How can this be the right war in Afghanistan when funding came from Pakistan and the “terrorists” came from Saudi Arabia?

Sen. Joe Biden “”The fact of the matter is, al-Qaida and the Taliban - the people who have actually attacked us on 9/11 [note: exactly the same wording as in the Obama speech] — they’ve regrouped in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan and are plotting new attacks.” From Global Research .

 Biden now endorses the Just War, but in so doing he sounds just like the old Joe Biden when he strongly endorsed the “wrong war” in 2002 and even helped sell this illegal occupation to the congress and the American people in spite of information from Scott Ritter and others that said there was no threat from Saddam. How long will it be before Joe forgets about this endorsement and moves us into yet another Just War somewhere else?

 “This concept of the “Just War” in relation to Afghanistan has been echoed by several prominent Liberal and “Progressive” intellectuals: The war on Iraq, on the other hand, is seen as an “illegal war”.
In October 2001, the attack on Afghanistan was supported by numerous civil society organizations on humanitarian grounds.
 It is by no means coincidental that the prominent “Leftist” scholars and intellectuals, who failed to address the use of the 9/11 attacks as a pretext to wage war, have expressed their support for Barack Obama. The Nation Magazine and Progressive Democrats for America are indelibly behind the Obama-Biden ticket
The Obama-Biden campaign has endorsed the 9/11 cover-up.
Without a shred of evidence, Afghanistan, a nation of 34 million people (the size of Canada), is portrayed as the State sponsor of the 9/11 attacks. This basic premise is accepted by the Democrats.
Obama indelibly upholds 9/11 as an act of war and aggression directed against America, thereby justifying a war of retribution directed against “Islamic terrorists” and their state sponsors. 

The fact that it is predicated on a “Big Lie” is not an issue.” From Global Research .

On “The Teaching 9/11 and The Just War”:
Former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean, who chaired the national 9/11 Commission, said 9/11 should be woven into every school district’s curriculum.”
The former co-chair of the single most flawed and incomplete government investigation of any event in our history, whereas he himself has claimed they were lied to and misled and that evidence was manipulated and hidden from them, Tom Kean now wants to apply his “experience” in the matter to developing the standardized curriculum to teach our children just the right facts about that day. To instill upon them the given mythology before they reach an age where they can question and investigate and decide for themselves. Shades of Nazi Youth and North Vietnam and China and the old Soviet Union.
 “But Barnshaw said he hoped schools went beyond simple ceremonies and used the anniversary to spark meaningful learning.
 It’s so uniquely impactful,” he said. “It should be given its own pedestal.”…

Finally, he connects the events to what’s going on in Afghanistan and Iraq and what could happen in Iran.” the Philadelphia Inquirer 

Young impressionable minds learning the connections between Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran and 9/11. Why do you think it is so important to “teach” these “truths”? 

 “It’s going to explore what it means to live in a post 9/11 world.” From the ABC News interview about the new memorial at Ground Zero.

The 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero will be a powerful tool to instill in the many thousands of visitors, the “truth” about that day. Videos, exhibits, and even classes will help mold those who come there to a proper thinking about what happened. All based on… what? Dr. Shyam Sunder’s “first time ever” hypothesis derived entirely from… a computer simulation? 

On “Reporting 9/11 and The Just War”:
Way beyond Fox, this is the same thing that our media generally (and with some important exceptions) has been doing for years, at least — mindlessly repeating and confirming false Government claims.” Glenn Greenwald 

“…the still-extraordinary fact that for the last seven years, virtually every American news program has employed as “independent analysts” people who were part of a formal, coordinated and likely illegal U.S. Government propaganda program.”  Glenn Greenwald 

Greenwald rightly exposes the important role played by the media in supporting the Pentagon’s criminal activities now in Afghanistan and even delves, lightly, into how they were willingly blinded by nationalism in the lead up to the Iraq invasion.

Yet, the scores of little lies never add up to addressing the Big Lie; the Untouchable Lie. For a that moment, Greenwalds credibility would collapse instantly. So the story lingers that the worst they did was to “hijack” 9/11 and make it suit their needs. Never a thought to the ridiculous assertions of the “official investigations”; never a moments pause about the writings of these neocons that begged for their “New Pearl Harbor” prior to 9/11; never a real question about the 9/11 coincidences that have to this day remained taboo to the press.
