This topic has huge, I think ramifications is the word.
In bringing more attention to the unknowns and revisiting the claims of foul play, it is certainly unfair on American citizens who have suffered so much, to increase their suffering by again questioning their beliefs that they still hold about their government and its agencies.
On the other hand, there are many who have come to realize the truths, or some of the truths, about the real perpetrators, the real actively-involved, the masters of cover-ups and mis-information and the complicit media. Perhaps it is fair to also include the many persons who are aware of the truth, but choose to remain silent. Maybe because their life would be at risk, or they have vested interests in staying silent.
There must be thousands, if not millions, who cannot believe in the ‘official’ story, but nor can they believe the alternative because it would destroy their faith in their country’s existence as a nice place to be. In its integrity.
There is much to show that, even though most citizens have integrity, a few don’t. That few are powerful enough to ruin things for the whole, the result being that the USA, as a country, effectively has no integrity. In fact , even worse than that!
Many writers and bloggers have spelt out their views on the absence of honesty in the 9/11 story. Some posts here try to contribute something of value. Many posts are referred to here and elsewhere. Currently, there is a comprehensive hearing going on in Toronto which will cover much information, ( 9/11 Toronto Hearings – LIVE webcast).
Sott.net has several relevant posts, one of which I highlight below.
Jesse Richard, ‘TVNewsLIES.org’ says, “I don’t believe the official story of 9/11 because I know the official story of 9/11! ”
During the past 10 years I have not met a single individual who, after doing research on the subject, switched from questioning the official narrative of the events of 9/11/2001 to believing the official narrative of those events.. It is always the other way around. Why do you think that is? There are good reasons for this, and I will try to explain this phenomenon right now.
The term “conspiracy theorist“, perhaps the most misapplied description in our vernacular, is often used to describe 9/11 truthers. Perhaps that term does apply to a segment of the 9/11 truth movement. But in most cases a more accurate description of 9/11 truthers is probably “expert”, or “scholar”, or “researcher.” You see, much of the doubt cast on the official narrative of the events of 9/11 has not come in the form of speculated accusations, or “theories.” In fact, it has come in the form of questions that have been raised after a careful study of the official and undisputed events and details.
Ten years have passed since the infamous events of September 11th, 2001 took place, and the majority of people still don’t know a damn thing about the actual details of that event. They don’t know what was going on in the country with regard to our military that day. They don’t know the history or the activities of key members of our government, defense establishment or intelligence community, on, or during the weeks, and in some cases the years leading up to that day. They don’t know what took place during or immediately following the events of that day. And they don’t know what actions were taken by those key people following that event.
So, I will end this article with a sampling of the questions that must be answered, or in the very least, investigated by impartial truth seekers.. They must NOT be ignored, or accepted simply because they were offered to a frightened nation by an administration defined by its lies. They are legitimate questions, based on legitimate suspicions. They are not, for a single moment, conspiracy theories”
- Why did the news agencies report that WTC 7 collapsed almost 1/2 hour before it did, even though it was not hit by a plane, only had a few floors on fire, and gave no indication that it was in any serious danger?
- Why do we still believe the tale of the 19 hijackers when so many of the accused hijackers showed up ALIVE within days? And why do we sill believe the fable of the 19 hijackers when the FBI admitted that they are not sure about either the identity of the hijackers or if there were any hijackers at all?
- Why was WTC 7 rebuilt, reopened and reoccupied with no press attention? Wouldn’t this be an important victory in American resolve and perseverance?
- Why were the NORAD rules changed for the first time several weeks prior to 9/11, taking responsibility/authority for shooting down hijacked lanes away from NORAD military command for the first time in its history, and given to a civilian, Donald Rumsfeld, and then returned to NORAD the day after 9/11?
- Why would hijackers planning on attacking NY and Washington DC drive from Florida, pass both DC and NY, and drive all the way to Maine and hinge this huge operation on a connecting flight from Maine to Boston, where we are told they hijacked their plane? Why wouldn’t they fly out of any of the airports that are visible from their targets, like Newark, La Guardia or JFK…or even some of the smaller local airports that would have given them a clear easy path to their target and reduce the amount of time that our air defense systems would have to stop them?
- Who placed all of those put options on the airlines just prior to the event, as if they knew that the stock prices on those specific airlines would lose a huge amount of value?
- Why did George W. Bush’s Secret Service detail not rush the president to safety when it was evident that the nation was under attack? If the nation was under attack, and they did not know the scope of the attack, and the president’s location was known, how did they not worry about being attacked in Florida?. Why did they act as if they knew that there was no threat? And why, when our nation was under attack, did the president not rush into action? If you say he was concerned about upsetting the children, you are the ultimate apologist. He could have told them that his mommy was on the phone and he had to see what she wanted. Our county was supposedly being attacked and he/they waited 20 minutes before they moved. This is the smoking gun of smoking guns.
- Why did the FBI never list Osama bin Laden as being wanted for 9/11? Actually, we know this one…because they admitted that they had no evidence linking him to the event.
- Why was there molten metal flowing under the wreckage of the WTC for months? No jet fuel can melt metal, and nothing explainable could melt that much metal and keep it hot enough to remain molten for a month.
- How did a passport of one of the so called hijackers make it through the huge fireball and end up on the street?
- Why have photos from the 80+ cameras confiscated at the Pentagon never been released?
- Why did the airplane that supposedly crashed at Shanksville vaporize so that nothing remained, not bodies, not luggage, not metal, – nothing – for the first time in aviation history? However, we are told that even though the plane vaporized at Shanksville, a hand-written note from a hijacker was found.
Of course, there are so many more. We deserve the answers. We deserve the right to ask these questions in public forums like the corporate media….who will not touch them with the proverbial ten foot pole. We have gate keepers on the Internet who actively ridicule and dismiss anyone who dares to raise these questions. Will you be one of them? Or, after really thinking about them, will you hope that one day, when we know what went on before, during and after the attacks on 9/11, – we can all say: “I did not know this, but I’m now absolutely convinced that it is true.”
Think about it…it’s really time to think about it.

My concept of the ramifications of the 9/11 disaster includes:
WTC building destructions and other New York casualties; aircraft passengers; Pentagon workers; Ground Zero workers suffering health issues; citizens of the US now being terrorized by TSA and other organizations for ‘security’ reasons; citizens of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan suffering death and more from Western aggression; US military personnel dying, injured and suffering mental issues, suiciding; Australian and other countries military, ditto, as part of the ‘Coalition of the
My concept of honouring the victims is to offer sincere condolences and sympathy to all victims, not only the US citizens, but the endless stream of victims suffering in the name of the ‘War on Terror’.
We should not be frightened of the truth, only of the dangers hidden by the lies and of the people who created and perpetuate them.
Numerous posts have been published on “The Golden Rule”. If interested select ‘9/11’ on ‘post archives’ drop-down menu. For me, the significant proofs are the WTC7 collapse and the small hole damage at the Pentagon.
