President Obama is continuing the 9-11 coverup. Meanwhile, more and more professionals- architects and engineers, intelligence officers, health care workers- are giving speeches denouncing the coverup, and circulating petitions to have a new, impartial investigation focusing on the question which was never asked the first time-

Anyone who has studied 9-11 at all knows it was an inside job.
Rumsfeld had control of scrambling planes to intercept enemies transferred to himself, exclusively, a few months before, and then disappeared that morning, so no planes intercepted the four hijacked airliners. Instead, there was a "stand-down" of NORAD.
By some strange coincidence, a dozen military air exercises were being run that morning, at least one of which simulated planes crashing into buildings, so that the air traffic controllers were confused about whether the "attack" was real or part of a drill.
The buildings were pulverized, but the passports of the hijackers were somehow left in a car and quickly "discovered". There was no investigation, only a coverup that blamed the CIA and recommended police state measures to prevent future "attacks".
Then there's the lack of plane parts and small hole at the Pentagon. The flying out of the Bin Laden family the next day. The millions made on selling airline stocks short by those in the know. The confusion about passenger lists. The rejection of FBI reports about possible terrorists at US flying schools. The trucking out of girders from the demolished towers before dawn, so that crucial evidence disappeared. The finding of thermite and demolition materials, in the rubble. And on and on.
Most Americans, even those who are working for peace and justice, are reluctant to believe that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest actually planned and implemented 9-11, even though their long range plan (PNAC) clearly states that they need "a new Pearl Harbor". The Reichstag fire is a better parallel, since it was also an inside job.
Polls show widespread skepticism of the cover story, and suspicion that Bush allowed 9-11 to happen, ignoring warnings from abroad and from his own intelligence service. But to think that he actually helped plan it, that demolition charges were set in the Towers by his brother's company- that is a depth of evil that most of us can't even begin to contemplate.
