so, on the day of 9/11 i had a phrase "go off" in my mind. and it was "bush did this".

i'm not saying he did it or anything i just want to know if anybody else received anything like that or otherwise. i'm big on the whole "collective conscious" thing and i'm taking a poll.

PS: if you had a phrase or a feeling come up just state it. don't try and defend bush or bash bush i'm not trying to go there. i don't care either way. thanks.

As i watched it on TV, i just could not get over the uneasy feeling that our government was behind it.

I did not believe that, though. For a while i was big on the official story.

Eventually, maybe 2-3 years later, a friend sent me a link to some excerpts from loose change and some other weird video of explosives going off, the next hting i knew i was researching WTC 7 and i had become a hard core "inside job" fanatic.

Finally i had come to terms with that original feeling. I had fought it so hard. I buried it deep inside. I did not want to believe it. However, when i finally looked over the evidence and finally realized the official story was Bs, i felt strangely relieved...

ok. so when you first heard about it and realized it wasn't an accident did you think "american terrorist" or did you have a persons name come to mind. i'm looking for a word phrase.

My first thought on the first tower hit, was "what a terrible accident",
after the other hit and the Pentagon, etc.

I never though it was President Bush, Our Government or American Terrorist....

I thought it was an attack by a Foreign Group / Government.

yeah, i think a lot of people first heard that a plane hit the world trade center and thought it was an accident. i thought that and even pictured a little cesna or prop plane in my mind. then as the radio was broadcasting what happened i caught on.

Well, I was 9 then, and my Mom picked me up from school during the attack. I'm like, "Mom wtf?" And she's all, "Terrorosts just attacked New York." And, me being the genious I was, said "Like, from Counter Strike?" lol

I was too young back then to be suspicious of the gov't

My first thoughts as I stood in a UK hospital waiting room at the time were
Wow check those special affects - I wanna see this film
Then I realised when the second plane hit moments later
My thoughts were 'What have they done'
and I knew inside me the only people who could hit America that hard
was America its self and everything i have seen and read since only cements my original thoughts.
Sorry Americans

Here's a related question, only slightly off-topic:
What words came to mind when you heard that the WTC had been bombed on February 26, 1993?

I mean, was anyone crying "Bush did it" back then? Or, more appropriately, was anyone crying "Clinton did it"...? I ask this because the Clinton administration presided over some of the most vicious government actions against American citizens in our nation's history. Consider that Ruby Ridge, Waco, and Oklahoma City — .line-grabbing strikes in an apparent ongoing domestic war between the Executive branch of Government and anti-government American citizens — would probably never have happened if the BATF and FBI hadn't entered the fray with blood in their eyes and a license to kill.

It was rather an open season on anti-government citizens back then, wasn't it? And Clinton himself openly defended government aggression against American citizens: "You can't love your country and hate your government!" (from President Clinton's public address in Oklahoma City following the OKC Bombing)

Say what?

That, in my opinion, was the greatest and most un-American lie that ever issued from an American president's lips: "You can't love your country and hate your government!" It wasn't a gratuitous and clumsy attempt at profundity — it was a warning, a very grave threat to our liberty to dissent. The Founders of this nation were probably turning (nay, spinning) in their graves as he uttered that ominous threat to a massive crowd of mourners and to the entire nation. And it crystalized, for me, just how very dangerous we had allowed the Executive branch to become.

The very second I heard about the second plane hitting and knew that it was an attack, the very first thing that came to my mind was our past coming back to haunt us. I did't have any true thoughts on exactly who but I felt as though it was a previous ally. We have middled in so many peoples affairs I just started running through the list of people we have turned a 180 on because our interests changed. I find it funny that a lot of the guns we get fired at us are the ones we provided. And should we invade Iran I will bet you at least one of the f-15's we gave them when they were better suited to our interests will be fighting back. More if haliburton has been selling them salvage parts from the ones taken out of service.

I had just recently, had a discussion with a Turkish gentleman, about the destruction of the Giant Buddha's by The Taliban, in Afganistan.
He spoke with disgust when talking about these Islamo-whackos, running the show, ruining peoples lives.

When I turned on the news that day, and saw the two Towers burning..I immediately thought of the Symbolism. Not that Buddha, and the twin towers were similar.
But that each was symbolic of a culture that they hated, and wanted erased.

I thought Taliban. And I was indirectly right.

i guess i'm not looking for a "who dunnit" kind of thing or blame game. i just want to see if the collective conscious had any impact on us that day. i used my phrase as an example only because it's the truth. i wasn't even into politics then and could care less aobut bush. the times before 911 i just new he was a bad president and had trouble speaking and i remember his poll numbers were an issue.

so, when i heard the phrase "bush did this" in my mind it was wild. i disregarded it and went on my way. kind of like when your speeding on the highway and you say to yourself "man i should slow down or i'll get a ticket" but you just keep on going the same and then you get a ticket. i'm trying to see if this inner voice we all have means something. since 911 is a national event and not one of my personal driving phenomenons i figured other people may have had similar thoughts.

point being, if my phrase said "osama did this" that's what the thread would be called and you'd probably be pleased as punch. to me it's indifferent at this day and age.

My thought pattern was much like your own reaganero, "America did this themselves" pretty muched summed up what I was thinking as I stood in awe in front of the telly that night (I was in Australia at that time) ... of course by 'America themselves' I did mean the government.


edit to add that this just brought back memories of that night, I was petrified for a friend of mine who was over there in NYC and had just that day told me she was planning to . to the WTC tower, doing the whole tourist thing. Turns out, she did go, with a friend, and a security guard had let them up to the top floor to take pics the very night before.

If only I'd known then what we know now. Would have sent her on a mission with the camera lol

Quite right, I launched into a rant that was totally off-topic, and if I had stepped back and taken a second look at the topic, I would have replied differently.

The morning of 9/11, I was starting my second day on a new job at a newspaper, where several radios and televisions were always tuned to local and national news media in order to keep us abreast of breaking stories. And we all snapped to attention when the story broke about the first plane slamming into the WTC. My first thought was "No...Way" but then I recalled other incidents of airplanes running into buildings. It had happened decades before right there in New York City — so I resigned myself to thinking this was just another of those very freak accidents.

When the second plane hit the WTC several minutes later, however, everyone realized that it was an attack of some sort, and my first thought was "Al-Qaeda"... and that name came to mind simply because I remembered that Al-Qaeda had financed the terrorist bombing of the WTC back in 1993. Or that was the story fed to the American people, anyway. Following the 1993 attack on the WTC, 10 radical Islamic conspirators were convicted and imprisoned for their part in the bombing, and they admitted that they had been financed by Al-Qaeda, a terrorist group that had an obsession with destroying the Twin Towers.

And my point is that only somebody too young to remember Feb 26, 1993 and Al-Qaeda's previous attempt to destroy the WTC would automatically leap to a different conclusion. If you're saying that you had an instance of clairaudience (psychic hearing) and a little voice actually told you "Bush did it", then I wish you had been around in 1993, because I'd be interested to hear who actually bombed the WTC the first time.

that's cool doc. i see your point. i'll just put you down as "al-qaeda" for your phrase. thanks for your input btw.


edit point: (not that it matter, but i was 18 at the time of the wtc 1993 attacks).
