The issue of 9/11 complicity is a great litmus test for awareness on the part of the American public. Ask any airline pilot if he could fly a 767 after having had just two weeks of flight training in a Piper Cub, and he'll laugh you right out from under your Coldplay-droning iPod. Or, possibly, he'll stare at his shoes and discreetly change the subject. Loose lips sink ships, or at least careers
One morning, I answered a radio call in my cab for a man who was headed to the airport. I thought it was strange that he didn't have any luggage, and asked if he worked out there. He said, yes, and, in fact, he was a higher-up in security. I relished the opportunity of having this guy as my captive audience for the next 30 minutes, and immediately began drilling him on 9/11 complicity. We weren't half way there before I got him to admit, that, yes, something was rotten in Denmark
. He had believed the official line in the beginning, but, over time, things didn't add up for him. Well, of course not. If he's savvy enough to be a point-man for security in a major airport, then he can see this for what it is. It weighed heavily on him, and he feared that it could happen again. I admired his straightforwardness, and his unwillingness to spin the truth. It made me wonder how many others in official positions are cognizant of this horrible reality, but keep their opinions down to a whisper for fear of reprisal. Many too many, I would say.
What riles me even more is the fact that the majority still swallow the official line, even those who would never accept this administration's word on any other issue, and that the time for exposure has seemingly come and gone. Why? Because, like the man said, a sucker is born every minute. The dumbing down
of this country has become so complete that such a brazen act of treachery could be carried out in complete confidence
. The majority have no sense of historical precedence, and miss the obvious parallels to the rise of the nazis and the burning of the Reichstag. Nor can they see past the "it can't happen here" zeitgeist that has long held this nation in it's grip. It sure as hell can happen elsewhere, but not in our own backyard
. Americans want nothing more than to think they've woken up in the same world they went to sleep in, and the conditioning from the mainstream media and advertising is a lullaby that soothes the beast of uncertainty in a hostile world.
Worse yet is to know that, even if a critical mass of awakening occured and the natives grew restless, the elites have the means at hand
to deal with an uprising. Posse Comitatus is now a thing of the past, and martial law and the deployment of U.N. troops
could come to pass in a fortnight. Halliburton
was just awarded a 385 million dollar contract to build internment camps for Homeland Security. That's a lot of barbed wire. If all this seems outlandish, then consider just how far we've come in the last five years. It has been a dark time, indeed.
If you are of the many who still don't feel the draft from having had your feathers plucked, I can assure you that the smoking guns
are numerous, and that the research
has been exhaustive.
There's no doubt that the 9/11 commission saw all of this information and more. But, being the good company men
that they are, it was all sidestepped, and the official report said, "move along here folks, nothing to see." How very predictable.
