Those charged with writing the official government theory (the 9/11 Commission) promised us "the fullest possible account." However, by limiting the parameters of their investigation (to "avoid placing blame") their stated goal became impossible. Vital evidence was ignored and, even when they suspected they were being lied to, nobody was held accountable.
Working within this limited framework, the 9/11 Commission COULD NOT do its job. As such, its job has not been done. The truly independent investigation American citizens fought so hard to secure has yet to commence. In short: We're not demanding another investigation; we're still demanding the first one.
This point sums up the conflict between supporters of the 9/11 truth movement and those who deny its merit. In the end, the truth movement seeks a complete and unbiased assessment of ALL the evidence ignored by the 9/11 Commission. Additionally, it seeks the opportunity to rebut falsified claims with more plausible ones.
Are these the same men who mistakenly linked Saddam to 9/11? The same ones who connected him to bin laden, to the anthrax attacks; to mushroom clouds and dangerous stockpiles of WMD? Are they the same men who claimed American Forces would be greeted as liberators, Iraqi Oil would pay for the war and overthrowing Saddam would bring stability to the Middle East? The same men who said the air at ground zero was safe to breath, detainees are not being tortured, and "wiretaps require a court order; nothing has changed, we value the Constitution."
Turning a blind eye to the "mistakes" listed above is one thing. Turning a blind eye to the countless omissions and distortions in the official account of 9/11 is quite another. There is no greater threat facing this nation than the prospect 9/11 was "allowed" or actually "guided" by criminal elements within our own government. To dismiss this possibility out of hand is not only disrespectful to those who died on 9/11; it's disrespectful to those who secured our right to challenge our government in the first place.
Today, I fully understand the danger of believing "our government" would never do such a thing. While it's true "our government" as a whole would not, those in the highest positions of power (with motive, means, and opportunity) would...and have. -Those who continue to insist otherwise are either ignorant (as I once was) or simply lying.
Knowing these facts, how can we justify allowing anyone to block our efforts? After all, if our suspects have nothing to hide, they have nothing to worry about. -A truly independent investigation will only exonerate them. However, if a cover up has taken place and those responsible go unpunished; we will have guaranteed ourselves more of the same. We will have exposed our country to the greatest threat imaginable...we will have failed in our duty to defend this nation from ALL enemies; foreign and domestic.
I, along with millions of other Americans, refuse to let that happen. Our congressmen and woman would be well advised to get on the right side of this issue. All positions against the 9/11 truth movement are untenable.
