When denial is so strong, it's because people don't want to know the truth. The implications are too overwhelming, too frightening. Facing the truth about 9-11, that it was an inside job, planned and carried out with the help of the Bush family and administration, means facing the fact that we are saddled with a monster, a satanic creature, that will stop at nothing to gain total power.
It means facing what fools we are, what cowards we are, not to call a spade a spade.
It means seeing through the pious cloak of false Christianity and false patriotism that Bush assumed.
It means facing the terrible danger we are in, of losing every ounce of precious freedom our forefathers fought so hard to obtain, and that we so take for granted.
It means looking frankly at our helplessness, our gullibility, our willingness to accept any form of hypocrisy, as long as we are allowed to go on shopping.
It means realizing that Bush controls vast portions of our society- that many people must know that 9-11 was an inside job, and won't step forward and say so, out of bribery, intimidation or both. A few brave souls have spoken up about the "power down" at the towers the week before, the evacuation of building 7 several hours before it, too, was brought down by preplanted demolition charges, the confusion at air traffic control when NORAD failed to intercept the planes that were so far off course- but not many dare to speak out. Why not?
It means realizing that the situation is so dire that we need help from a higher power, and should start praying, as sailors do when the ship is sinking.
Six years after 9-11, We the People are starting to recognize that we, too, have power. Some of us have been praying steadily, and the fruits are starting to show.
We've seen through the lies that took us into Iraq, and understand more about Bush's hypocrisy, and willingness to "fix the facts around the policy" as the Downing Street memo puts it. Osama is another convenient "fact", like WMD's in Iraq.
We've seen that we have been blessed with the internet, with which to hunt for the truth, disseminate it, work with one another to reach new depths of understanding of our situation.
We've come to understand that under our precious Constitution, We the People are sovereign, and don't have to tolerate another King George.
We've won an election, despite all the dirty tricks and voting machine fraud. We've even pushed the incoming Congress to censure Bush.
Our higher power has helped us all along to value truth above convenience, to fight with words rather than guns, to operate out of love for each other and future generations.
Perhaps now we are ready to face the truth about 9-11. The whole "war on terror" is based on 9-11, and is seen for the sham it is, once we realize it was an inside job. Once we do, our outrage will be so great that we will force Congress to impeach Bush and Cheney, the real hijackers.
