September 11: Message of an Ex-Marine to the Anti-War Movement

09-10-2006 21:41

The whole ordeal in the first Gulf war made me realize that things are not always what they seem to be. Yet, a decade later, on the morning of September 11th immediately after the towers fell, even though I intuited that the Bush administration was behind the attacks, I chose to believe the official story, because I did not dare to believe otherwise.

It wasn’t until the Bush administration started incessantly insisting that Iraq had WMDs, that I realized that something was not right. In early 2002, I began to search for answers on the Internet, never thinking that I would spend five to six hours daily for the next four years.

So now we know. We know that, just like war, 9/11 is a racket, a military false flag psy-op, a highly deceptive series of events conducted to gain the support of the population for wars in the Middle East.

Of course protests are now effectively banned under SOCPA legislation, and the police used force to both disperse and corral protestors. Several have been arrested and several injured including an NUJ photographer taken to hospital with worrying injuries,

Below are some thumbnails of pictures published by some of the main picture agencies to give you an idea of the event and the media reporting. Higher size and resolution pictures are available online,
