Since that time, we’ve been told that a terrorist group named Al Qaeda, led by a Saudi named Osama bin Laden, was responsible for what happened on September 11, 2001. In fact, Osama bin Laden has admitted to being behind what happened on 9/11/01 and he’s said this on video.
Osama bin Laden is to 9/11 what Emmanuel Goldstein was to members of The Party in George Orwell’s “1984”.
Just as Goldstein aroused fear and anger in members of The Party, Osama bin Laden has aroused fear and anger in many who live in the FUSA (Former United States of America).
In our search for vacation accommodations this past summer, my wife and I were able to learn a great deal using satellite imaging technology. From our computer screen, we were able to actually see the expressions on the faces of people who happened to be standing near the hotels we looked at.
What do my family’s vacation plans have to do with this essay?
On occasion, it’s been revealed that Osama bin Laden is somewhere in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan or Pakistan.
The Regime has access to satellite imaging and can obtain real time satellite images from anywhere on earth, including Afghanistan.
It’s important here to remember that the FUSA invaded Iraq and now occupies that country. We’ve been spun through numerous reasons why this was done.
First, “Saddam” had weapons of mass destruction. Our Secretary of Defense claimed to know exactly where they were before we invaded Iraq. We’ve long since learned that there were no such weapons. There are people that say “Saddam” moved them before the invasion or hid them. This is strange behavior for a man whose life depended upon his actually having them and using them.
Secondly, Iraq had ties with Al Qaeda, according to Bush and Cheney. No he didn’t, according to Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld and, yes, Bush. Yes he did according to Cheney. No he didn’t… The truth? Saddam Hussein and the members of Al Qaeda were adversaries. Sorry, Dick. Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, and, sometimes, Bush, are all correct.
Then, it suddenly became urgent that we free Iraq. We needed to hurry, invade Iraq, topple Saddam Hussein and force feed Iraqis something that The Regime calls “democracy”.
That’s even stranger than Saddam hiding or moving his means of defense. We were attacked by terrorists from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. They were guided by the words of Osama bin Laden and the ideology of Al Qaeda. Yet, instead of hunting down Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, it suddenly became our top priority to bring down the Iraqi government and begin building a “democratic” Iraq.
It’s been suggested that we invaded Iraq so that all of the radical Islamic terrorists would gather in one place so we could rid the world of them. This means that we’re supposed to believe that radical Islamic terrorists are clever enough to beat American defenses and carry out a well planned, well timed attack on 9/11, but they’re so dumb that they’d fall for a “mousetrap” ploy that would ensure their extinction. And why gather them in Iraq? Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Why chance killing Iraqi civilians to trap these dummies who beat American defenses?
To review, 9/11 happened and, if you’re so inclined, you can believe The Regime’s fairy tale about how it happened.
The Regime has the most technologically advanced satellite imaging in the world.
Osama bin Laden has admitted to being involved in 9/11, but has not been captured.
Instead of responding en masse to the 9/11 attack, The Regime invaded Iraq.
In addition to all of the other fallacious reasons we were given for invading Iraq, some have said that we invaded Iraq to cleverly trap, kill and/or capture the members of the organization which carried out 9/11.
Since our invasion, The Regime has used torture to gain “important information about the enemy” and has gotten permission from Congress to continue to use torture.
In five years, we have not captured the person we claim was most responsible for what happened on 9/11/01, despite the advanced satellite imaging and tracking technologies possessed by The Regime.
We invaded Iraq, drew in what The Regime claims are “Islamic radicals”, captured, imprisoned and tortured them. It’s quite obvious that we have not yet tortured the right person, the person who can tell us where Osama bin Laden is so that we can capture him and bring him to justice. After all, The Regime reminds us on occasion that Osama bin Laden is the enemy about whom our torture processes are supposed to help us gain information.
Those who believe in an alternate explanation of what happened on September 11, 2001 are called names, much like kids in second or third grade call one another names.
Yet, those who do the name calling seem to believe that our military and covert operations haven’t been competent enough to capture Osama bin Laden by using satellite imaging which can focus in on a dime lying on a sidewalk.
Many seem also to believe that torture is necessary in order to gain important information about the enemy who should, by all accounts, be Osama bin Laden. Yet, in three years time, torture has not netted us Osama bin Laden or his whereabouts. Have we just not tortured the right person yet, have we tortured incompetently or could it be that torture just doesn’t have the results that its advocates claim it has? Could it be that torture doesn’t work?
During Watergate, Deep Throat told Woodward to “follow the money”. That should be done in the case of what happened on September 11, 2001 as well.
In addition, it might be advisable to follow the logic. There is no logic in what, according to the train of thought used above, we’re supposed to believe. Yet, this is what the people who are too “stable” to believe “crazy conspiracy theories” choose to believe.
“At this stage, therefore, the proletarians do not fight their enemies, but the enemies of their enemies, the remnants of absolute monarchy, the landowners, the non-industrial bourgeois, the petty bourgeois. Thus, the whole historical movement is concentrated in the hands of the bourgeoisie; every victory so obtained is a victory for the bourgeoisie.” – Karl Marx
