While we were not
watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian
A "conspiracy theory" no
longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any
explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government's
explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news
broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York
Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does
not report and the US government does not endorse.
In other words, as truth
becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is
redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable
explanation that we should ignore.
When piles of carefully
researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses
made it clear that Lee Harvey Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy's
assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony
was dismissed as "conspiracy theory."
In other words, the truth
of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of
Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.
The purest example of how
Americans are shielded from truth is the media's (including many Internet
sites') response to the large number of professionals who find the official
explanation of September 11, 2001 inconsistent with everything they, as
experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering, architecture,
fires, structural damage, the piloting of airplanes, the security procedures of
the United States, NORAD's capabilities, air traffic control, airport security,
and other matters. These experts, numbering in the thousands, have been shouted
down by know-nothings in the media who brand the experts as "conspiracy
This, despite the fact that
the official explanation endorsed by the official media is the most extravagant
conspiracy theory in human history.
Let's take a minute to
re-acquaint ourselves with the official explanation, which is not regarded as a
conspiracy theory despite the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy. The
official truth is that a handful of young Muslim Arabs who could not fly
airplanes, mainly Saudi Arabians who came neither from Iraq nor from
Afghanistan, outwitted not only the CIA and the FBI, but also all 16 US
intelligence agencies and all intelligence agencies of US allies including
Israel's Mossad, which is believed to have penetrated every terrorist
organization and which carries out assassinations of those whom Mossad marks as
In addition to outwitting
every intelligence agency of the United States and its allies, the handful of
young Saudi Arabians outwitted the National Security Council, the State
Department, NORAD, airport security four times in the same hour on the same
morning, air traffic control, caused the US Air Force to be unable to launch
interceptor aircraft, and caused three well-built steel-structured buildings,
including one not hit by an airplane, to fail suddenly in a few seconds as a
result of limited structural damage and small, short-lived, low-temperature
fires that burned on a few floors.
The Saudi terrorists were
even able to confound the laws of physics and cause WTC building seven to
collapse at free-fall speed for several seconds, a physical impossibility in the
absence of explosives used in controlled demolition.
The story that the
government and the media have told us amounts to a gigantic conspiracy; really a
script for a James Bond film. Yet, anyone who doubts this improbable conspiracy
theory is defined into irrelevance by the obedient media.
Anyone who believes an
architect, structural engineer, or demolition expert who says that the videos
show that the buildings are blowing up, not falling down, anyone who believes a
Ph.D. physicist who says that the official explanation is inconsistent with
known laws of physics, anyone who believes expert pilots who testify that
non-pilots or poorly-qualified pilots cannot fly airplanes in such maneuvers,
anyone who believes the 100 or more first-responders who testify that they not
only heard explosions in the towers but personally experienced explosions,
anyone who believes University of Copenhagen nano-chemist Niels Harrit who
reports finding unreacted nano-thermite in dust samples from the WTC towers,
anyone who is convinced by experts instead of by propaganda is dismissed as a
In America today, and
increasingly throughout the Western world, actual facts and true explanations
have been relegated to the realm of kookiness. Only people who believe lies are
socially approved and accepted as patriotic citizens.
Indeed, a writer or
newscaster is not even permitted to report the findings of 9/11 skeptics. In
other words, simply to report Professor Harrit's findings now means that you
endorse them or agree with them. Everyone in the US print and TV media knows
that he/she will be instantly fired if they report Harrit's findings, even with
a laugh. Thus, although Harrit has reported his findings on European television
and has lectured widely on his findings in Canadian universities, the fact that
he and the international scientific research team that he led found unreacted
nano-thermite in the WTC dust and have offered samples to other scientists to
examine has to my knowledge never been reported in the American
Even Internet sites on
which I am among the readers' favorites will not allow me to report on Harrit's
As I reported earlier, I
myself had experience with a Huffington Post reporter who was keen to interview
a Reagan presidential appointee who was in disagreement with the
Republican wars in the Middle East. After he published the interview that
I provided at his request, he was terrified to learn that I had reported
findings of 9/11 investigators. To protect his career, he
quickly inserted on the online interview that my views on the Iraq and
Afghanistan invasions could be dismissed as I had reported unacceptable findings
The unwillingness or
inability to entertain any view of 9/11 different from the official view dooms
to impotence many Internet sites that are opposed to the wars and to the rise of
the domestic US police state. These sites, for whatever the reasons, accept the
government's explanation of 9/11; yet, they try to oppose the "war on terror"
and the police state which are the consequences of accepting the government's
explanation. Trying to oppose the consequences of an event whose explanation you
accept is an impossible task.
If you believe that
America was attacked by Muslim terrorists and is susceptible to future attacks,
then a "war on terror" and a domestic police state to root out terrorists become
necessary to make Americans safe. The idea that a domestic police state and
open-ended war might be more dangerous threats to Americans than terrorists is
an impermissible thought.
A country whose population
has been trained to accept the government's word and to shun those who question
it is a country without liberty in its future.
