Re: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the New World Order
Sam, I didn’t say "the gummint done it" and "adjust facts backward". Critical thinking says that when a profferd explanation does not explain the evidence then that explanation cannot be true and must be rejected. It is terrible to think that a few zealots armed with box cutters could defeat the defenses of the most powerful nation on earth. Improbable, really. It is also improbable that standard, simple procedures designed prevent such a plot from succeeding could so utterly fail, not once, but three times in one day. On the other hand it is impossible for planes crashing into the WTC to have caused their complete destruction – and photographic evidence and eyewitness testimony shows that, in fact, this is not what happened. This evidence does show that planes crashed into the towers and subsequently they were destroyed by a series of explosions. In fact, this is exactly what was reported in the media on 9-11-01. I reiterate, when confronted with a truth so monstrous it is easier for most people to believe a lie.
The building owner had possession of two enormous white elephants laced with asbestos that would have been enormously expensive to mitigate. Following their destruction he received a multi-billion dollar insurance payout and the mess was cleaned up at public expense. All health and damage claims were shifted to the public. Two wars were started and legislation was enacted without substantial review that allowed access to financial and telecommunications traffic for the entire nation – in secret, without the possibility of court review. Indefinite detention of citizens in secret, without access to legal recourse was asserted merely by mentioning the suspicion of "terrorism" or threat to the state. Numerous private companies received enormous no-bid contracts to provide secret military and intelligence services.
We will see these changes continue to bear fruit – beyond what has occurred over the past 8 years…
