Shortly after 8:46 a.m. Eastern time Monday, bells will toll for the victims of 9/11 — or should I say some of the victims.
It’s been 16 years since the 21st century’s “Pearl Harbor,” which began the government’s all-out assault on the U.S. Constitution and also the perpetual “War on Terror.” It would take a continuous tolling of bells in perpetuity to mark all of the victims.
Government, the mainstream media and an American populace blinded by normalcy bias, cognitive dissonance or faux patriotism — whatever you want to call it — and the powerful mainstream media propaganda machine consider anyone who questions the official narrative of 9/11 a “conspiracy theorist.” But the official narrative — that 19 hijackers, funded by Osama bin Laden and armed only with box cutters and a couple of flight lessons, commandeered four passenger jets and flew them into three buildings and a Pennsylvania field while U.S. air defenses dithered for almost an hour (in the case of the Pentagon) — is, as former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and retired Marine Col. Ronald D. Ray says, “the dog that doesn’t hunt.”
Examine the meaning of the words “conspiracy theory” and you see that the official narrative is itself a conspiracy theory. Merriam-Webster defines “conspiracy theory” as “a theory that explains an event or set of circumstances as the result of a secret plot by usually powerful conspirators.”
And so it is for the official narrative, also known as the 9/11 Commission Report. The 9/11 Commission Report does not definitively state what transpired that day, but does flesh out the theory that the attacks were carried out by at least 19 conspirators (hijackers) or more if you include bin Laden (the purported financier) and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (the alleged mastermind) working out of a cave in Afghanistan. This theory is considered the gospel according to George W. Bush, the mainstream media and even many of those who acknowledge the Bush regime lied America into the Iraq war are unable — or unwilling — to see that the Bush regime likewise lied us into the entire “War on Terror.” To believe otherwise is to believe in miracles, as David Ray Griffin points out in his book, 9/11 Ten Years Later.
