Really Smooth Government Deception

It is just simply amazing to observe the the reactions of the many people I speak to in the course of a day who have almost no clue that they have been deliberately and continuously lied to by their 'elected officials'. Many get extremely defensive and wish to consign one who would speak 'ill' of their precious 'leaders' to the looney-bin, or someplaces even much worse!

Occasionally one will run into some who have a bit of an idea that 'politicians' more-or-less lie as a part of their 'trade', but that the little 'fibs' they recount for the populace are really meant for "our own good"! Laughable it would be if it were not so darned serious!

Here is an article which would most likely make the hair curl on the heads of some of the above:

World Trade Tower 'Controlled Demolition'?
MER Editorial

MIDDLEEAST.ORG - Washington - 15 June: MER has never before published this story, this 'conspiracy theory' if you will. Though under much pressure over the years to do so we always held back and never published anything about this 'possibility'...until today that is. But now the fact that a ranking former Bush Administration official, in fact the man who was the top government economist in the Labor Department on 11 September 2001, has now gone public saying 9/11 may have been a historic hoax and the World Trade Towers were 'most likely' destroyed by a 'controlled demolition', causes us to reconsider. This is far too important to simply dismiss at this point. At the least we conclude this story now deserves far more attention that it has gotten in recent days with nearly the entire corporate media focused on Michael Jackson and various frivolities while this paragraph -- published this week on the UPI wire from Washington in fact -- has hardly had any attention:

A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is "bogus" and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, "If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an 'inside job' and a government attack on America would be compelling." Reynolds commented from his Texas A&M office, "It is hard to exaggerate the importance of a scientific debate over the cause of the collapse of the twin towers and building 7. If the official wisdom on the collapses is wrong, as I believe it is, then policy based on such erroneous engineering analysis is not likely to be correct either. The government's collapse theory is highly vulnerable on its own terms. Only professional demolition appears to account for the full range of facts associated with the collapse of the three buildings."


We think an unprecedented international press investigation is now called for to match this unprecedented historical situation -- one totally independent of all governments, intelligence agencies, and pressure groups; and one bringing together a coalition of major international media from various political and national dispositions. What happened is a totally modern-day sui generis event with the greatest of history-changing consequences. Taking place so soon after Ariel Sharon came to power in Israel, and the Bush/Cheney Administration put so many former Israeli-Jewish lobby 'Neocons' in key power positions throughout Washington was suspicious from the start. But in the past we thought these suspicions had more to do with what the U.S. and Israeli governments really knew in advance, and what steps they were fast preparing to take whenever they had the excuse to do so regardless of the actual facts.

But now we have to add to the larger picture that there is quite a long history of major political/military deceptions and hoaxes originating both with the Israelis and from Washington. To mention just a few that history has so far unraveled includes the sinkings of the Maine and the Lusitania, the Lavon Affair, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, the deceptions behind the 1967, 1982 and Gulf Wars, the Iraq-Kuwait-US invasion, the 'Oslo Peace Process', and most recently the 'Stealth Assassination' of Yasser Arafat after the assassinations of the senior Hamas leadership. Add to this historical brew quite a few other very suspicious developments that have come to light including the jubilant Israelis caught after photographing the WTC's collapse, all the unexplained developments in Lebanon, the blatant lies and cons surrounding the Iraq invasion including Colin Powel's testimony before the Security Council, and looking ahead at the moment the considerable preparations to take down Iran one way or another. And so we conclude that such an unprecedented situation on top of such already proven lies and deceptions dateline Washington, London, and Israel, all call for an unprecedented coalition of credible major media from many countries to come together for a White Paper investigation of 9/11 focusing on the following specific issues:

1) What really happened on 9/11 and who knew what in advance?

2) Had the U.S. government prepared in advance to exploit such an event as 9/11, whether the full story is now known or not, in order to pursue geostrategic goals decided upon in advance regardless of the actual facts of the situation?

3) What is known about the behind-the-scenes contacts and coordination between the U.S. and Israeli governments, and the crucial role played by the leading American Jewish Neocons who held key power and intelligence positions in Washington at the time of 9/11?

Comment: We extend a hand to the people at MER and say "Welcome aboard".

The left in the US has by and large refused to discuss the possibility that 9/11 was in inside job. They have tended to dismiss it out-of-hand as "conspiracy theory" -- and readers of this page will likely have a good idea of all the baggage that term carries with it. That is why we think this change of heart on the part of MER is significant.

A refusal to consider the possibility that Bush and his friends were behind the attacks of 9/11 and the deaths of nearly 3000 people has hampered the left and other progressive groups in fighting against the imposition of fascism on the American people. Without the understanding that the Bush Administration is capable of planning and carrying out an attack of that scale on its own people, one is seriously underestimating the opponent, permitting them to get away with murder. And we mean that literally. It has been particularly frustrating to see because groups like MER have done so much good work in cataloguing the litany of horrors brought upon people the world over by these same forces while denying that Cheney, Rumsfeld, and company would be capable of doing the same thing at home. What kind of a blind spot is that!

It raises another point: the appeal to and trust in authority. The triggering element in MER's decision to begin discussing 9/11 in these terms was the revelation that a former member of the Bush Administration has questions about the collapse of the three towers of the WTC, citing evidence that it seems more like a demolition than a collapse caused by the planes. Given no plane hit Building 7, that has always been an important hole in the official theory. So the evidence has been there for people who were willing to do the research and figure it out for themselves, who were not waiting for some authority figure to give the "conspiracy theory" his OK.

The 9/11 Truth movement has been bringing forward this evidence for years, presenting in great detail all the points where the data and the official story don't mesh. The evidence raised by Reynolds and so disturbing to MER has been discussed publicly for a long time. MER, unfortunately, appears to have changed its position because of the remarks of Mr. Reynolds, that is, because of who raised the questions, not based upon a reading of the evidence itself.

We do not think that this changes the importance of MER's decision. Perhaps they have had their doubts about the official story but were unwilling to discuss them in public because of a fear of being ostracised or dismissed as "conspiracy theorists", the death knell for "serious researchers".

We also applaud MER for seeing the important role of Israel in these events, a role that many 9/11 researchers refuse to admit. Of course, given its primary focus, MER is well-placed to know about the deceptions and false flag operations of Israeli intelligence.

Now that MER has decided there is enough evidence to begin to publicly raise these questions, we hope that other groups, such as ZNet and CounterPunch to name but two, will bring this same information to their readers, giving it the stamp of legitimacy that so many progressives in the US seem to need before confronting the biggest swindle and horror story of our time, before being able to open their eyes to reality and to see and think for themselves. To understand what is happening in Iraq today, one needs to understand 9/11. To understand how and why the last two presidential elections were rigged and stolen, one needs to understand 9/11. To understand that the situation in the US is far worse than the left has been willing to admit, one needs to understand 9/11. To understand how deeply the fascist beast has its talons sunk into the American political body, one needs to understand 9/11. To understand the true nature of the US/Israeli alliance, one needs to understand 9/11.

We hope, as well, that Mr. Reynold's remarks will be heard by the many Republicans who no longer recognise the GOP in its current incarnation, that they will find the courage to speak out against the ideologues who have taken over their party, and join in a movement to impeach Bush and those in his administration who are responsible for the war crimes committed in their name around the world and the murder of 3000 people at home. The full public hearing of the truth and the prosecution of the quilty for their crimes is the only true honour that can be paid to the victims.:
