One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been so credulous: Carl Sagan
For seven years, Americans have been willingly bamboozled by the official 9/11 explanation because, in general, they are afraid to contemplate that their elected leaders would so blatantly expedite or allow such a horrendous act of violence to occur ~ in order to further their own global neocon vision of world domination.
But the truth has a way of slowly and perceptibly working its way to the surface of our consciousness as it well may be on this the seventh anniversary of 9/11.
Carol Wolman, MD who is running for Congress in CA District 1( on the Green Party ticket ) against Rep Mike Thompson calls it breaking the spell.
" Here we are, 7 long years later, and they’re still getting away with it. There has been no real investigation of 9-11, and 9-11 truth advocates are still labeled “fringe”, “paranoid”, “conspiracy theorists”. The country has bought the lie. We are under a spell.

I attended a 9-11 truth rally yesterday.

He writes: Our investigation had also brought us to the training of the hijackers because the expert levels of airmanship displayed in the attacks raised red flags of suspicion. …The 911 Commission Report maintained that these pilots were flying Boeing 757s and 767s for the first time. They concluded that in the very first minute in an actual 767 cockpit, one hijacker was able to fly the plane from a cruise altitude of 31,000 feet into a sustained power dive, level out, find his target and hit the south tower of the World Trade Center at an indicated airspeed of 465 knots. The Pentagon plane was even more suspicious in that the 90 foot building was hit at around the same phenomenal airspeed of 460 knots following an absolute perfect 330 degree steep turn at 2,500 feet while in a sustained descent.
These are just a few examples of the outrageous inconsistencies in the official 9-11 story. Yet most of the country continues to buy it. The speakers yesterday talked about how jolting and upsetting it was to realize, several years later, that we are being lied to over and over, and how it took them several days to readjust their thinking.
President Bush told the Republican Convention last Tuesday night that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, are still reverberating around the world, and voters must elect John McCain as president “to protect
This shows how central 9-11 still is to the whole Republican agenda. It provides the excuse for fascist legislation, for invading other nations illegally, for executive abuses of power of all sorts.
If it could be proven that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld, perhaps Rice, Guiliani and a few others, expedited 9-11, they could be tried for treason, because they attacked the
9-11 is the key to the whole neocon agenda. Their script, as laid out in the PN
Bush has used it to the fullest, obeying the letter of the law when he can, getting Congress to cover his butt retroactively, as with the new FIS
Well guess what, George W Bush and Dick Cheney have more than proved what evil they are capable of with their illegal war and occupation of Iraq as well as countless other abuses of power ~ all under the spell of 9/11 and National Security.
We must all now be open to the possibility that we have been blatantly bamboozled on 9/11 and can no longer be afraid of the truth.
