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.

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,

. . . . DESPITE several distractions, the "omissions" in the "mainstream" coverage of this event, in fact, from the background summations of the bio of this journalist THEMSELVES allow thoughtful people clues as to what were the actual causes of this murder - but also that poisoning as she went to the BESLAN school siege - in the run up to the USA election as the "security moms" factor was amped up.

Major Escalation in the War for U.S. Global Dominance?

08-10-2006 21:38

The Bush administration has recently succeeded in passing legislation that makes it easier to round up and torture American citizens, among others, and now it seems to want to start World War III. One can't help but wonder if threatening the entire planet (plans have allegedly been drawn up entertaining the nuclear option in Iran) is this administration's way of dealing with a very bad month of relevations.
