As the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, the 9/11 Truth movement is preparing to host protests and conferences around the United States.
Fifteen years of lies. Fifteen years of “War on Terror.” Fifteen years of warrantless domestic surveillance. Fifteen years of increasing militarization of the police. Fifteen years of manufactured terrorists and false flag terror attacks.
Each of these dilemmas can be traced back to the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City. From the moment the news pundits decided that Osama Bin Laden was responsible for bringing down the World Trade Center towers, attacking the Pentagon, and other attempted attacks – the American people have been fed a lie. For the last 15 years thousands of documentaries (a few of higher quality than others), researchers, firefighters, architects, engineers, pilots, psychologists, and 9/11 victims’ family members have analyzed, questioned and challenged the official version of events.
The growth of the movement seeking truth about 9/11/01 has manifested in a wide range of alternative theories about what may have actually taken place that day. Some of these theories examine the physical aspects of the collapse of the Twin Towers and the lesser-known World Trade Center 7, which also collapsed despite not being hit by a plane or consumed by a burning inferno as originally reported. These theories encompass a wide set of beliefs, including the idea that nuclear weapons, military explosives, or some type of “directed energy” or exotic weapons were used to drop the towers at nearly free fall speed.
There are theories about elements of the U.S. government either allowing or participating in the planning of the attacks. There are theories about people in positions of power or influence being warned not to go to work on 9/11, theories about whether or not the planes were even real, and theories on the possibility that the event was a psychological and spiritual attack on the human psyche itself.
For all the theorizing, the area where the official story is showing the strongest signs of cracking is in the discussion of who financed and supported the attacks. Indeed, on Friday July 15, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) published the newly declassified 28 pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001. The 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released in 2002.
The long-classified pages make up the bulk of a section titled “Part 4: Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters.” Former Senator Bob Graham, a previous chair for the House Intelligence Committee who has been extensively involved in the fight to release the pages, told CNN that he was “very pleased” by the announcement.
“It is going to increase the questioning of the Saudis’ role supporting the hijackers,” Graham told CNN. “I think of this almost as the 28 pages are sort of the cork in the wine bottle. And once it’s out, hopefully the rest of the wine itself will start to pour out.”
Despite the release of the 28 pages, many Americans and researchers of the 9/11 attacks are not prepared to end their search for truth. Although the Saudi government continues to deny any wrongdoing, the documents show clear ties to Saudi Arabia. Still, many in the 9/11 Truth movement are cautious of the 28 pages, with some calling the whole fiasco a psychological operation being conducted on the American people. What is the purpose of the PsyOp? The idea would be that “the powers that wish they were” allow a controlled release of the low hanging fruit (28 pages) and focus attention on Saudi Arabia rather than possible connections to the U.S. government, Pakistan, or Israel.
The fact that these pages would be released at all should be celebrated, but we must not allow the 9/11 Truth Movement to rest for a single moment. With the 15th anniversary approaching this a grand opportunity to have conversations about the many, many questions surrounding the attacks. After all, even if the Saudis were involved, it does not explain how the buildings could fall at near free-fall speed or how or why World Trade Center 7 fell despite not being hit by a plane.
Regardless of whether or not you believe the 28 pages are the end of the 9/11 Truth search or just another distraction, the American people are tired of being lied to by their government. There is a growing discontent in the nation right now and many of the crimes perpetuated by the government against the people have been allowed in the name of keeping people safe from terror attacks. Simply put, exposing 9/11 destroys the whole Police and Surveillance State.
For 15 years architects, engineers, actors, scientists, pilots, firefighters, activists, and family members of the victims have raised a wide range of questions related to the funding of the attacks, the physics of the buildings’ collapse, the possibility of controlled demolition or other exotic weapon used to bring the buildings down, and much, much more.
For the 15th anniversary, the collective “9/11 Truth” movement will descend on New York City to protest and rally in the streets. If you have questions about 9/11 please come to New York City or organize in your city. Activists with We Are Change NYC will rally at Ground Zero and other important sites throughout the city on Saturday September 10 and Sunday September 11.
In addition to street action, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, and other co-sponsors have organized the Justice In Focus: 9/11 Symposium. The conference will feature keynote addresses from respected legal figures, as well as panel discussions on the role of the Deep State and the significance of the recently declassified 28 Pages, presentations by movement leaders and researchers, and day-long evidentiary hearings on the World Trade Center’s destruction, which will be conducted by a panel of lawyers.
