Attack on America, By America
September 11, 2001 was unquestionably a tragic day for America and the world. While the 3,000-plus deaths on American soil elicited support and tears from around the world, now many international citizens resent or even despise the country that ratcheted up the War on Terror. But for many in the country, and a staggering number of foreign citizens, the truth about what really took place on September 11, 2001 remains under relentless scrutiny and doubt. The mainstream media and politicians love to pass these claims off as "conspiracy theories" (the threat of being a social outcast can get the best of us), but the facts tell a much different story. Consequently, there is substantial evidence that the United States Government carried out this horrific day in order to lock down this country, taking away our civil liberties. All of the supposed conspiracy theories of the United States can be most likely linked together. This one would have to be the biggest since it affects us Americans much, much more as a whole. The acts of 9/11 were shaped to form the Bush Administration and ultimately US Government’s entire foreign policy. By the afternoon of September 11th, Osama Bin Laden was already being coined as the one to blame for the 9/11 attacks. Although Bin Laden was clear as to not have had anything to do with the attacks, Bush orders CIA intelligence to “Get Bin Laden, find him. I want his head in a box”. Several weeks later, a video tape is found in a house in Afghanistan. He talks about the attacks on the tape, but does not admit to being involved. The White House and Bush Administration uses this video as sole proof of his blame, although they do not allow the tape to go to through third party translation during the investigation. Two tapes, one recovered in 2005 and another in 2006 are used to state blame by Bin Laden, but the two tapes clearly show two different men. There was no videos found of Bin Laden after 2006 either by Iraq/Afghanistan media or by the CIA. Most believe he was dead by 2007 due to extreme kidney infection. As far as the alleged hijackers, there was proof that both the CIA and FBI in Arizona, California, Pennsylvania, and Virginia were under constant surveillance years before the attacks were even carried out. Two of the hijackers even lived with an FBI informant and visited by the other accused hijackers in San Diego and spent time in a local Islamic Temple. Finally, an intelligence source by the FBI known as Able Danger identified two of the hijackers three years before 9/11 even happened. The department of defense and Bush Administration, of course, completely disagreed with this claim. All of the hijackers are clearly patsies used for something extremely bigger. Strange how Satam al-Suqami’s passport was found at the World Trade Center minutes before the South Tower collapse. How was he allowed on an airplane without a passport? Doesn’t seem clear. Between September 2000 and June 2001, the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, would send fighter jets to aircraft 67 times. Interceptions were routine and usually are sent up within 10 minutes of trouble, such as, losing radio contact, a transponder signal, or flying off course. On September 11th, 4 commercial jets were off course and out of communication and none of them could be intercepted. Although both George H.W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice both stated that the U.S. Government would not ever think about people flying planes into buildings, it is now clear that they were not completely honest. NORAD, or North American Aerospace Defense Command is used to protect the Western Hemisphere from issues such as a terrorist attack, or the like. They were running “war game exercises” on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. A year before the attacks, they ran an exercise of which a Commercial Aircraft would be planning on flying into the WTC Towers. 5 Months before 9/11, they again conducted exercises. This time on an attack on...
