On 9/11 one of my first thoughts was "Well there goes Civil Liberties!" There always exist people who wish to see the power of the
Corporation/Government enhanced at the expense of the civil liberties of individuals. September 11th type events give them the political cover and
advantage to move their agenda. And as we have seen with the USA Patriot Act they did not hesistate. Most of the stuff in the Patriot act had been
requested for years before 9/11 and rejected.
I also recall thinking on 9/11 or shortly thereafter that it was quite amazing that even a big jet crashing into one those buildings could bring the
entire structure down. I was also amazed at how "orderly" they came down--and at that moment was relieved, thinking of the additional carnage that
could have occured had they topled to one side or another thus involving other populated structures.
I became aware of the 9/11 conspiracists but initially dismissed them. I just thought they were grasping at straws. It seemed a too momentous crime to
attempt. Yet when revelation after revalation about the criminality of individuals associated with the Bush administration (e.g. chief domenstic
adviser arrested for a shoplifting scam, the attempted appointment of mob friend Bernard Kerrick as SECDHS, the Rove/Abramoff axis) surfaced, as well
as the lawlesssness of lying the nation into war; of essentially kidnapping and holding people prisoner without any sort of objective/fair legal
review; of subjecting all email and phone communications to intelligence software probing despite legistlative and constitutional prohibitions, it
began to be clear to me that these people were capable of anything. So after the 2004 election, when evidence began to emerge that it too had been
stolen in Ohio , I began to wonder whether there wasn't something to the idea that 9/11 was an attack carried out by highly trained and organized
people who at the very least represented powerful interests who would benefit in treasure and power from a fearful nation.
Was the crime too big to pull off? Well not if you have been paying attention. John Kennedy was killed in public in the middle of a major American
city and to this day the public does not know who did it although there is the improbable "usual suspect" Oswald officially labeled as the assasin.
What someone who is paying attention might have learned is that any crime the government is willing to abet is very doable. The government does not
even have to do a whole lot more than just look the other way. It was a sure bet, for example, that J. E. Hoover, who hated the Kennedys, was not only
not going to bend over backwards to disclose what happened. Hoover would have worked overtime to confuse and muddy the record thus insuring that the
guilty got away. Getting away with it is all about keeping the goverment from really and honestly using its investigative powers and then just
managing (and making money) off of the information flow.
