This article is a challenge to global peace, freedom, and justice activists.
The official government version of the 9/11 attacks breaks down when pressed with elementary questions. Without official media censorship, the story given by the Bush administration would’ve been deconstructed in a matter of days, and support for the War on Terror would’ve collapsed upon its first public announcement by the President. Our nine years of darkness and tragedy would’ve only lasted nine days.
Writers like Glen Allport, Jon Gold, David Ray Griffin, and others have already provided well-written reasons for why a new 9/11 investigation is necessary. I did not write this article to list in another fashion the evidence of an official 9/11 cover-up, but to confront those that are numbly accepting the government’s tale, and challenge them to withdraw their approval of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory. There is no justifiable reason to go on believing that Al Qaeda was responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The events of that tragic day still shock today, but for reasons that are more terrifying than watching two iconic buildings with people trapped inside demolish into total dust on television. Looking back now, we can say with absolute certainty that they were not just acts of destruction by terrorists, they were also acts of treason, and of war, by state and corporate criminals who are still free today to commit more crimes, and atrocities. The longer we stay silent about the depressing facts, the more innocent people suffer. We can hold our nose but that will not make the rotten smell go away. Denial only produces further death and destruction. It is high time that we all grow up, and accept the most difficult truth of our age. It is partly our fault that we are led by the worst among us. By not speaking up, we are betraying freedom and truth even more scandalously than our government leaders. Our slavery is justified because of our timidness in the face of petty tyrants, and self-obsessed thugs. But if we stand in defiance, then the days of tyranny will grow shorter, and the size of tyrants smaller. History shows that the day of judgment is marked longer on the calendar of cowardice than of bravery. That is because the bold triumph quickly, whether they commit good or evil deeds, while the fearful unnecessarily suffer, and eventually die a regretful death.
