Is 9/11 Still The Crucial Issue?

Is 9/11 still the crucial issue of our time? The following piece, which appeared on a myspace blog several weeks ago, argues that it is, and provides a collection of excellent links.

I've taken a few liberties it -- converting the URLs into links, fixing up some spelling and punctuation here and there, and of course reposting it in its entirety.
Understanding why 9/11 is still the crucial issue!

As I anticipated, the BBC's 9/11 Conspiracy Files hit piece recently broadcast by Blair's Broadcasting Corporation, really would have been laughable, were it not such an important matter. Thankfully, I very much doubt it requires me to point this out to you.

Unfortunately however, due to the large and significantly (as I will go on to explain), worldwide audience that the BBC now draws, this dross will undoubtedly permeate into the mass consciousness, in much the same way as the 9/11 Commission Report has. Below is an illuminating extract from an important article by Paul Joseph Watson, concerning the BBC documentary, and the related potential conflicts of interest existent within the BBC. Look out for Murdoch's fingerprints!!
Ian R. Crane, Chairman of the 9/11 Truth Campaign for the UK and Ireland, and a former BBC staffer, claims a source told him that producers Mike Rodin and Guy Smith have edited two different versions of the show and are in a quandary as to whether to air the balanced piece or the hit piece." "Crane claims that the new head of the BBC's commercial operations in the US, former Fox senior executive Garth Ancier, is the point man in persuading program directors to air the hit piece, fearing that a more balanced appraisal would anger corporate partners and sales across the Atlantic.
Without going on and on, I'd just like to point out the most important consideration required here. The issue is not about whether the least strong questions surrounding 9/11 can be debunked! The point is that the major smoking guns have not been addressed properly, by the 9/11 Commission or by media resources incapable of remaining independent on the matter because of the nature of their funding and editorial constraints; such as the BBC and Popular Mechanics.

The point is that even if only one of the many inconsistencies existent can be proved to show that the US Government made or let the attacks happen on purpose, then all the straw-men arguments in the world cannot counter this! In relation, here is a brilliant article I highly recommend reading!
Aw, shucks, it was nothin'!
The BBC documentary was essentially a character assassination of Alex Jones, Dylan Avery and Webster Tarpley. Whilst there are more academic/scholarly sources detailing the 9/11 attacks (which I will move onto shortly), they nevertheless submit important evidence, and ask fundamentally unanswered questions, surrounding the events of that day and beyond. For evidence of this, take a look at Alex Jones' film "Terrorstorm", and Dylan Avery's "Loose Change 2nd Edition" (a 3rd and more accurate edition is currently underway), both of which can be viewed for free at google video.

Ok, if you've read this far, I've obviously got your attention! So, if you really want to understand why I have developed such an interest in this subject, it requires a sacrifice of time (which I appreciate most people cannot or will not afford the matter). However, if you are able to, you will very quickly realise that this is a complex topic, and requires in depth explanation, that can only be provided by presentations/lectures/films/literature of the lengths below. I have spent a great deal of time looking in to this over the past few years, and so I've drawn up a shortlist here of the best introductory items for your consideration.

Firstly, I present to the film "Oil, Smoke and Mirrors" that will hopefully provide the contextual backdrop required to fully appreciate exactly why the 9/11 attacks might have happened. As always however, decide for yourself!

This is a lecture given by the author and theologian David Ray Griffin. I highly recommend his book "The New Peal Harbour"; it's a great place to start on this subject. This lecture follows another of his books "9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" which demonstrates the total whitewash investigation that Bush belatedly allowed into the events of that day.

And here's another of his lectures ... and another. This lecture compares the myths and reality of 9/11 and offers enlightenment about the manipulation of religion within the official account of 9/11.

It is necessary to understand the physics surrounding what is said to have happened that day. A good starter here is Stephen Jones' lecture.

And this an interesting interview by Jim Fetzer, that ties in with the above.

This documentary below presents a simulation using the American 77 Flight Data Recorder as provided by the NTSB following the full flight in real time as it happens in the air traffic system on Sept 11.

In relation to the false flag operations discussed within films such as "Terrorstorm" and "Oil, Smoke and Mirrors" among others, here's a clip discussing Operation Northwoods, a plan for US false flag terrorism ... and here is the (PDF) document itself.

This is one of the first lectures that really made me sit up and take notice. Mike Ruppert provides some important historical context relating to the US and in particular the CIA, and follows in to 9/11.

This (PDF) is an extract from Mike Ruppert's book "Crossing The Rubicon..."

Here's another clip discussing Norad and the drills on 9/11.

Below is a relatively new film that highlights the important role that widows of 9/11 victims have played in demanding an investigation of any sort! It provides some crucial information.

Finally, this site offers very user-friendly timelines detailing events.

I hope these links demonstrate the multitude of questions remaining about what happened on 9/11. I try to avoid speculative explanations, as only the perpetrators of the attacks know exactly what happened that day. However one thing is for certain, and that is, that the official account provided by the US Government is massively flawed!

Peace and love, Mike
Thanks, Mike!
