There was a time, not long ago, when daring to question the official account of 9/11 was risky business. One was almost guaranteed to be attacked as a "crazy person" or a "traitor" or a "terrorist sympathizer."Quite so. I remember it well; I especially remember posting my first few 9/11-related pieces ("9/11 Was a Hoax: How and When I Knew It", and "Trouble").
But as Joe Plummer puts it:
Times have changed. At this point, less than 20% of the population believes they were given the full truth regarding 9/11. Logically one might ask: "Why is that?"There are two ways to take this question. Personally I was amazed to find that 16% still believe the official story. Why is that number so high?
But then I remembered that 20% of Americans think the Sun revolves around the Earth, so actually 16% believing the official story is probably about right.
Joe Plummer attacks the question from the other direction: Why has the number of Americans who disbelieve the official story become so large?
It wasn't for lack of trying that the government failed in its propaganda campaign. It wasn't for lack of "helping hands" in the mainstream media. (Though even that support has begun to fall apart.) No, it was one thing and one thing only that caused hundreds of millions of American citizens to openly question the official account of 9/11; the evidence.Plummer runs through a quick recap of the various types of evidence (physical, historical, circumstantial) and the various topics the evidence falls into (false-flag terrorism, obstruction of justice, controlled demolition).
Then he takes a closer look at three of the incredible deficiencies of the offical report: its failure to mention Building 7, its misrepresentation of the architecture at the core of Towers 1 and 2, and its utter avoidance of the money trail connecting the hijackers to some very interesting individuals.
To settle any doubts as to whether questioning the official conspiracy theory is a wacko endeavor, he links to a page of statements from very distinguished patriots who disbelieve the official story and are willing to sign their names and stake their reputations on it.
And he finishes with something that startled even me -- and if you were as tired as I am you would know it takes quite a bit to get any reaction at all, let alone a startle. But this surprised me, and in a good way:
Times have changed and the people (for good reason) no longer believe the lies they've been fed about 9/11. We've woken up to the level of corruption in our government and the official lie (by all practical means of determination) is in critical condition and not expected to recover.I am in strict accord with Joe Plummer on almost everything he has said here, but I do not believe the game is over. On the other hand, I promise I'll take a nap when it finally ends.
This can only mean one thing. An Independent investigation into the attacks of 9/11 WILL BE conducted. And this time, it isn't going to be handful of citizens asking questions and demanding answers; it's going to be 80% of the country. And this time, you won't so easily ignore and whitewash the sensitive issues, because an educated citizenry is not so easily fooled. And this time, those who have stonewalled, lied, manipulated, covered up and acted in a criminally negligent manner will be held accountable for their actions.
To those in power who've forgotten the reality of their position in government, YOU SERVE AT THE PLEASURE OF THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Once again, you're on notice to stop ignoring our demands for a new investigation. This issue isn't going to go away, and your refusal to address it will cost you dearly.
And to those of you with something to hide, perhaps now would be a good time to "lawyer up" and "cut a deal." The game is over.
