Many who believe the Twin Towers were not brought down by jet fuel alone are quick to suggest the U.S. government took part in the attack.
But I am of the opinion that George Bush and his immediate team were not in on 9-11. I do not feel confident a plan to strike fear into the American people would have ever included portrayal of a government as ineptly prepared or revealed a President as cowardly.
In the kind of irony no scriptwriter could imagine, it recently made news when Senators examined incriminating vote-caging lists Karl Rove's chief aide mistakenly sent to his nemesis at georgewbush.org, a parody site selling anti-Bush t-shirts and bumper stickers. But even more revealing was the video tape made during the moments 9-11 was unfolding, showing a humble schoolteacher with a very special guest in her classroom.
It is unfortunate the tape become the centerpiece of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911 film as Moore's controversial take on the event overshadowed the drama the raw footage surely had on it's own. Indeed Moore talked right over the clip, which showed George Bush inexplicaby sitting on his ass as American cities burned.
Brain research shows most people are extremely resistant to changing beliefs once set, though when they do, are far more likely to based on conclusions made themselves rather then coming from others. This phenomenon of mass psychology was the cornerstone of Reagan's campaign strategies.
In August of 2006 a Vanity Fair article detailing the NORAD tapes of September 11 showed a government dangerously unequipped for the terror in the skies. The greater purpose of propaganda stunts like Hitler's fire in the Reichstag or the frame-up of Nicaraguan rebels is not to villify the enemy as much as to make the leaders look like saviors. The NORAD jet fighters were so slow to react in our defense during 9-11, the US government tried to prevent the response time from reaching the public. Even today, parts of the audio remains secret. But when I discovered Bush was supposed to have been in contact with NORAD commanders standing by to approve a shootdown of hijacked passenger jets, it affirmed what I'd felt when I first saw the "My Pet Goat tape". That Bush was frozen with indecision.
Though Bush's contempt for the Constitution emerged in any case, the 9-11 attacks remain unexplained and unavenged, prompting Americans like me to wonder whether further rationale for impeachment might include Bush's ineffectiveness in pursuing America's enemies.
