I always thought the official narrative of 911 was bullshit. The original story never made sense. There were just too many unanswered questions, too many suspicions, too many physical impossibilities. By September 2001 the Internet had been around for a while and I was an accomplished enough sleuth to quickly discover the many anomalies. The ones that still stand out are WTC-Building 7 and the dancing Israeli’s. Building 7, although not struck by planes, collapsed into its own footprint hours after the attacks. The dancing Israeli’s were a group of so-called “art students”, in white vans, who were seen filming the attacks and celebrating.
Even two decades after the fact, it is still deemed too controversial or unthinkable to question these oddities or ask whether the official story is an accurate portrayal of the events that transpired on and led to that day. Therefore, I’ve come to believe that in order to truly understand the War on Terror, the domestic surveillance state and our current reality, we must accept that we were lied to about 9/11. Going further–to come to terms with 911 it’s imperative to ask the ultimate question: Cui Bono?
Much of the alternative narrative has been assembled by the brilliant Ron Unz. He says, “Over the years, diligent researchers and courageous journalists have largely demolished the original narrative of those events, and have made a strong, perhaps even overwhelming case that the Israeli Mossad together with its American collaborators played the central role. The historical pattern of Israeli activity, especially with regard to false-flag attacks, is really quite remarkable. And even though it was played down, Israel has a history of attacking the US. In 1967, Israel launched a deliberate air and sea attack against the U.S.S. Liberty, intending to leave no survivors, killing or wounding over 200 American servicemen. This thoroughly documented history of major Israeli false-flag terrorist attacks, including those against American and other Western targets, should be carefully kept in mind when we consider the 9/11 attacks.”
The official US Government position on 9/11 is that any and all aspects of it are directly attributable to 19 named Arabs on 4 planes, conducting a terrorist operation planned and executed by Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda. Unz claims, “this position is at best incomplete, and at worst a complete fabrication engineered by those directly or indirectly responsible for what happened on 9/11, and the wars afterward. There is a mountain of physical, technical, analytical and circumstantial evidence, far more than any unprejudiced person needs to understand far beyond any reasonable doubt whatsoever, that (1) the USG case is fatally flawed, and (2) this was a Mossad-directed operation orchestrated at the highest levels of the Israeli government (because of the target) with local support within the US and elements of the US Government itself.”
“In a crime investigation it’s useful to examine motive. I find it difficult to think of any country in the world that clearly gained as a result of the 9/11 attacks and America’s military reaction, with one single, solitary exception. During 2000 and most of 2001, America was a peaceful prosperous country, but a certain small Middle Eastern nation had found itself in an increasingly desperate situation. Israel then seemed to be fighting for its life against the massive waves of domestic terrorism that constituted the Second Palestinian Intifada.”
The 9/11 attacks changed everything.
Suddenly the world’s sole superpower declared an endless war on terror against Arab and Muslim terrorist movements, especially those on Israel’s enemies list. Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon’s neocon political allies in America used the new “Pearl Harbor” as an opportunity to seize control of America’s foreign policy and national security apparatus. Unz says that during the period an NSA source claimed that “Israeli generals freely roamed the halls of the Pentagon without any security controls.” Meanwhile, the threat of domestic terrorism, exacerbated by the anthrax attacks, was used to implement the Patriot Act, that was used to harass or even shut down various anti-Zionist political organizations. One of the art students, who turned out to be an Israeli Mossad agent, arrested by the police in New York City as he and his fellows were celebrating the 9/11 attacks and producing a souvenir film of the burning World Trade Center towers told the officers that ‘We are Israelis…Your problems are our problems.'”
And so they immediately became.
General Wesley Clark reported that soon after the 9/11 attacks he was informed that a secret military plan had somehow come into being under which America would attack and destroy seven major Muslim countries over the next few years, including Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Libya, which coincidentally were all of Israel’s strongest regional adversaries and the leading supporters of the Palestinians. As America began to attack all of Israel’s enemies after 9/11, Israel itself no longer needed to do so. Partly as a consequence, almost no other nation in the world has so enormously improved its strategic and economic situation during the last 20 years.
And, here we are. Not only has the US attacked the countries on Israel’s hit-list but our military as adopted the IDF method of warfare with its targeted assassinations, night raids, torture and drone strikes. As the shambolic withdrawal from Afghanistan and lightening fast Taliban victory have attested, all of this has been roaring success.
At this point any sane person would want to ask why Israel’s problems have become ours?
Here’s where it gets extremely complicated. Any criticism of Israel immediately gets one labeled an anti-Semite. Furthermore, the enormous dominance of Jewish and pro-Israel elements in the American corporate media and Hollywood has long ensured that even when the solid evidence of such attacks was discovered, very few ordinary Americans would ever hear those facts. As an example of this phenomenon, read the links above and ask yourself why you, dear reader, have never heard of any of this?
There’s so much more that points to an Israeli connection, but everyone inside the national security state, corporate media, or even alternative media understands the grim consequences of breathing a word about it. They saw what happened to Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. They are not stupid.
