"The people who knocked these buildings down will soon hear from all of us", W Bush had shouted into his 'bullhorn' shortly after 9/11, except of course, 'it wasn't the Iraqis', but W Bush preemptively attacks Iraq anyway while lying about 'an imminent threat' (#FraudulentJustification - Article II) to do so without ever investigating all 'the reported explosions' and who had been 'really responsible for knocking down the World Trade Center on 9/11'. #PrePlantedExplosives 'used' say Commissioners. There never were 'nineteen hijackers' from anywhere in the world who could have come to New York City at exactly 5:20 PM on 9/11 to 'pull down' Building 7 in 6.5 seconds. 9/11 had to be someone with access to all three towers and 'knew how to do it'. #PrimaryInsideExplosives - 'the real story' at the Pentagon, Twin Towers and Building 7 on 9/11. #RedPillExpo.
