Remember the pre-911 document that indicated a need for another "Pearl Harbor"? It was prepared by the neo-conservative Washington-based organization known as the Project for the New American Century (PNAC). It stated that the strategic “transformation” of the U.S. military into an imperialistic force of global domination would require huge military expenditures, making the process "likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event-like a new Pearl Harbor." When that insider document surfaced after the terrorist attacks, it sent chills down the collective spine of American thinkers.
911 worked like a charm for the neo-cons. They took control of a fearful populace, and herded the American sheep into a corral of deception, all the while wildly waving an ocean of flags to cover up their deeply un-American agenda.
Americans found themselves amidst a plethora of 911 "facts" that didn't add up. The natural denial and confusion of those first moments were followed by individually undertaken scientific investigation. Some of these results are just now coming to light. Brigham Young University professor of physics Steven E. Jones presented his paper, Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse? in Sept. 2005 . He's hardly your crazed conspiracy theorist. His paper is thoroughly written with detailed documentation, scientific analysis and piercing questions begging to be addressed by Washington.
Deseret News says Jones "is calling for an independent, international scientific investigation "guided not by politicized notions and constraints but rather by observations and calculations."
"It is quite plausible that explosives were pre-planted in all three buildings and set off after the two plane crashes - which were actually a diversion tactic," he writes. "Muslims are (probably) not to blame for bringing down the WTC buildings after all ."
The neo-cons' newest confidential-memo-brought-to-light says that another devastating terrorist attack on American soil could “validate” the President's war on terror and allow Bush to “unite the country” in a “time of national shock and sorrow .” This would naturally boost their party's ratings, which are currently in the gutter along with their moral values.
Combined with the nagging suspicions about how much of 911 was an inside job, this memo begs the question - how many more "Pearl Harbors" do the neo-cons think we need?
And right on cue, Bill O'Reilly chimes in to extend a syndicated radio show invitation to terrorists to wage an attack on San Francisco . Is someone turning the volume up to Code Red again?
Clearly, 911 is not what it seemed to be at first. And the sooner we get to the bottom of it, the sooner America's citizens will be safer from the real perpetrators of this terrorism.
