And then I turned on the set and watched in horror as the Twin Towers collapsed and my comfortable world went with it.
Fast forward several years and I first learn that 9/11 was an inside job by watching a video called In Plane Site. (1) Before long I was in contact with the producers and writing one article after another, getting the word out with so many others. Blogsites followed. (2) Letters to politicians.
One by one, the facts emerged that proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that 9/11 was a conspiracy and that the tentacles of that conspiracy reached seemingly everywhere.
There was Carol Rosin testifying before Steve Greer’s Disclosure Project that the conspiracy was full blown by the early 1970s. She outlined how the New World Order had planned first to create fear around communists, then rogue nations, terrorists, asteroids and finally aliens. (3)
As the years went by, architects, engineers, pilots and other very credible sources detailed how the plot was planned and carried out. It was all overwhelming and deeply, deeply dismaying. Waking up from the illusion of government competence and benignness left one feeling sick to one’s stomach.
It’s been thirteen years since 9/11 and every year we hope the truth emerges. And thirteen years of people suffering the after-effects of the world’s most terrifying moment since the dropping of the atomic bomb.
The families of the victims want the truth and closure from their suffering. Others who value truth and integrity want the full story revealed and a return to government by and for the people.
But the group whose suffering strikes me most keenly are the world’s Muslims. Muslims were set up as the scapegoats for 9/11 and nothing of the story that had them be cast out of “reputable” world society is true.
It’s time – well past time – to apologize to world Islam for our treatment of them for something they did not do. Ostracism such as world Islam has suffered since 9/11 can be soul-destroying, as anyone who has suffered similarly can testify.
I’ve lost touch with the latest news of what happened on that day. But nothing of the official story holds water.
When at last it dawns on all of us what extremes of behavior we were led to, there’ll come a second crisis as people mourn their misled actions in punishing the innocent and unacknowledged victims of that day’s disaster.
If there’s any way that anyone can reach out to the community of Islam and apologize for how we made them suffer, that would be balm to my soul. I’ve tried to reach various officials and found it difficult to make contact with anyone.
I’m sure they want no further publicity, no further trouble, no further discussion of the events of that day and so we may need to show them that the masquerade is over and that at last they’ve been vindicated.
Will it be, when the truth is known, that we’ll excuse and justify our behavior? Or will we forthrightly acknowledge our mistake and make amends? If we don’t, all our pretensions to coming from an ethical society will be laid bare.
What happened on 9/11 was a global tragedy. But we multiply the tragedy every day by falsely accusing the innocent.
