Most anniversaries of September 11, 2001, I have written an article presenting yet again the enormous evidence that the official story of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon are so obviously false as to be unbelievable. Yet Americans believed the transparent lie.
The military/security complex was desperate for enemies. In 2001 Russia was under the US thumb. China’s rise was predicted to be 50 years away. Where were the enemies to keep the military/security budget and power growing?
The neoconservitives who dominated the Cheney/Bush government identified the Arab Middle East as the enemy and said a “new Pearl Harbor” was needed to provide wars to overthrow 7 countries in 5 years.
