By Dave Lindorff

It's often been noted that countries that go to war tend to adopt the behaviors of their enemies in fighting them, and then bring that war and the techniques they have appropriated home where they begin to apply them domestically.

For at least two decades, since the US in 2001 launched its so-called "War" on Terror following the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in 2001, the US, under a series of three presidents, has waged a grossly illegal war around the globe against alleged terrorists, real or perceived, in countries as remote as Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria. In this borderless, lawless "war" the US has turned to the same kind of terrorism that it accuses its enemies of using.

Not content to just drop bombs on militants, it has turned to drone execution by Hellfire missiles tipped with explosives that destroy countless innocent civilians in the interest, sometimes, of "taking out" just one purported terrorist. They then launch a second missile when people run to help rescue victims of such attacks, or wait until the funeral, and then attack that. (It's a tactic called a "double tapping," a term used by soldiers who illegally put a bullet in the head of a wounded enemy fighter instead of taking the person into custody and providing medical assistance as required by international law.)

These attacks on terrorist leaders are, in the lingo of the trade, referred to as "decapitations." It's the same term applied to what the Taliban in Afghanistan or IS fighters in Syria or elsewhere use to describe how they kill captives in their actions, which they, without an airforce or access to drone technology, dispatch in the old-fashioned way, with a large knife or a sword.

Now soundly and decisively defeated in his bid for re-election (Biden's winning the national vote by 4% and by 6 million votes and counting, with only heavily Democratic New York State and primarily even more heavily Democratic New York City having a significant one-sixth of its votes in the form of absentee ballots left to count) and having won 306 Electoral College votes, 36 more than needed, Dear Leader Donald Trump is turning to IS tactics in his flailing effort to hang on to the White House.

Last night, on Fox News's "Sean Hannity Show," Rudy Giuliani, the head of Trump's legal team that is filing dozens of lawsuits in so-called swing states that narrowly went for Joe Biden this year seeking to overturn those Biden victories, told Hannity that the Democratic Party had been taken over by "the Clintons," and then added that the the leadership of that party "needs to be beheaded." He made a hand-accross-the-neck gesture to emphasize his meaning.

Hannity cut the interview off abruptly at that point, but the Fox News shock-jock shouldn't have been caught by surprise"

Maybe Giuliani is afraid that Biden will expose the truth about 9/11.

Biden will not expose any truth, least of all about 9/11.

Silly people talking about silly stuff, while the real damage is hiding in plain sight.

The truth of 9-11 is that as a result of governmental incompetence a terrorist group was able to murder thousand of innocent people. End of story.

Hence relying on the government is a mistake.

Jim I might have bought your perspective about 9/11 until I did some research into all the very suspicious evidence. I would invite you to read, 9/11 Unmasked: An International Review Panel Investigation by David Ray Griffin. It's pretty clear given all the investigation by a myriad of experts this was no "result of governmental incompetence".

Regarding the mention of Rudy Giuliani's role in 9/11, you may want to do some digging regarding how this exceedingly well planned demolition on 9/11 happened and how access became readily available (there you'll find Mr. Guiliani's fingerprints).

What I disagree with is any consideration that Biden would reveal this State Crime, or any for that matter. He is part of the overall cabal. FDR once said, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way." Biden is of the corrupt system that has given us endless war, assassinations, and events like 9/11.

I wouldn't, as Mr. Lindorff appears, give a second of attention to this nonsense of decapitation. The real crimes are before us, and they aren't per se due to a given administration alone.

You know what's wrong with you Truthers? You are right that the story of 9-11 hasn't been told by the government. I've reported on that. But by jumping on every story and turning comment sections into places to say the same stuff over and over. All you are accomplishing is clogging up the comment section and discouraging people from commenting on the issue in the article. You're not convincing anyone of your views with your comment. Why don't you comment on the story at issue, and leave 9-11 out of it?

Dave,

While you make a few good points, you fail to acknowledge that 9/11 exists as a rot at the core of our country and the world. It apparently was a false flag operation that launched the War on Terror (which Borat called "The War of Terror"), which has killed and displaced countless human beings and fueled the MIC.

Like a physical or psychological wound that is still festering, but denied by the government and the media, it is inevitable that people will feel compelled to revisit it again again. Call it "the return of the repressed."

"You know what's wrong with you Truthers?" carries an all too familiar invalidating tone.

Actually I don't claim to belong to any club. I do seek as much truth as one can find amongst so many lies.

I merely responded to another comment. I wasn't trying to make this into what you call a "Truther" story. My concern as I tried to explain was spending any time on some asinine statement by the former Mayor of NYC (they do pick some buttes). It's a follow the "birdy" off-with their heads, while the real crimes roll on and on.

Jim,

I'm afraid you're wrong on this one. The reality is daunting to face, which is why many people don't have the courage to do so. But turning away from reality has major consequences.

To obtain the details of the 9/11 false flag operation (if you wish) you can see the following:

I have written important well sourced pieces in TCBH , Counterpunch and oped news proving that the NTSA got ajj four black boxes from the WTC planes.. I know the story of a surprise attack is BS. But that has NOTHING to do with this story.

Dave,

Actually, it does. You began your article this way:

"For at least two decades, since the US in 2001 launched its so-called "War" on Terror following the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in 2001, the US, under a series of three presidents, has waged a grossly illegal war around the globe against alleged terrorists, real or perceived, in countries as remote as Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria. In this borderless, lawless "war" the US has turned to the same kind of terrorism that it accuses its enemies of using."

That opened the door. There is a great deal of information available re- this issue, which includes Mr. Giuliani. As I mentioned, the concept of the "return of the repressed" is relevant here. My post expands on this. It is as if the collective unconscious won't be silent.

Yeah, Blair, I guess you're right. I concede that I did inadvertently open the door to 9-11 with the lead. But I'm writing about a different issue here, nonetheless: It's the ievitable returning of the violence of our nation to our own shores that we practice on those we invade and occupy, and instead of having the debate hijacked by the 9-11 Truther squad, who can write their own articles, it would be better to have a discussion of the issues raised in the article. ;-)>

Dave,

A few things.

You wrote:

"But I'm writing about a different issue here, nonetheless: It's the ievitable returning of the violence of our nation to our own shores that we practice on those we invade and occupy, and instead of having the debate hijacked by the 9-11 Truther squad..."

First, I do not think it is useful to use the term "9-11 Truther," as the term is regularly used in a condescending way to peripheralize and invalidate citizen researchers.

Second, OEN threads are a bit like jazz in the sense that improvised melodies appear regularly.

Third, I wonder if you perceive that 9/11 is one of two "Big Secrets," that if fully exposed, would open the possibility of putting major cracks in the Empire. I'd rather see you validate the concern in a specific way and make your separate argument.

Fourth, just my preference, but I'd rather see you tie the two themes together, since they are in fact deeply related.

Fifth, remember - "the return of the repressed."

Dave,

I'll say it in a stronger way: by using the term "9-11 Truther" you unknowingly (?) support those who wish to hide the truth.

The same applies to not linking the person who is the subject of the current article with 9/11, This creates the same result.

I invite you to probe in depth vis-a-vis the Black and Deep Black projects (including the "Second Manhatten Project"). You have an opportunity to offer a major contribution to the world.

Last but not least, it is unrealistic to expect the collective unconscious not to speak whenever an opening arises.

A terrorist group that fooled all airport security, Got all of U.S. air defense to stand down, managed to initiate a mock scenario of the exact terrorist event being executed. The same terrorist group managed to destroy all evidence pertaining to the attack and suppress all investigations into all aspects of the attack. Damn, these guys were incredible!

Yes, lets have it - 'the truth about 9/11'? 'So very true' - there never were any 'nineteen hijackers' or any 'hijacked planes' from anywhere in the world who could have come back to New York City at exactly 5:20 PM on 9/11 to ' pull down ' Building 7 so 'precisely' in 6.5 seconds complete - yes, 9/11 'had to be' someone who had the 'access' to all 3 Towers and 'knew how to do it' (explosives 'used', killing 'almost' 3,000 persons). 'Every' - anniversary of 9/11. Trump and his lawyers should have been charged and prosecuted for 'treason' - trying 'as they did', with 'the frivolous lawsuits of a sore loser', to obstruct, challenge, and thwart the sovereign will of the American People, who had elected Biden to the presidency.

Just a thought: you might want to present your data and thoughts in a different way so that it is more appealing and readable. But, of course, do what you think is best.
