Some number of years ago, three or four I think, I was tending bar and working long hours.
I would come home at 2 or 3 A.M. and want to know what had happened in the 'war on terror', which I supported whole-heartedly.
Since I dont have cable TV and there is only infomercials on public TV in the wee hours of the morning, I would search the internet for news.
Night after night I was amazed at the lack of coverage on all the mainstream news sources.
One evening I saw a side story titled something to the effect of
"9/11 Widow sues Bush administration".
Being a newshound I was kinda surprised I had not heard this story before, so I clicked on the link to see what it was about.
The story was about Ellen Mariani and here attorney Phillip Berg.
I kinda chuckled as I read the story. They were claiming RICO if I remember correctly.
"Preposterous" I thought to myself.
But the lingering question in my mind was 'why would she not take the million dollars offered to here and attempt to sue the President'?
I decided to look into Elen and her claims, just to see where she was coming from and what in the wide wide world of sports she was thinking.
After about a week of digging I began to understand that there are indeed some very serious discrepencies in the 'official story'.
After about another week of research and I was convinced that Ellen did indeed have a case for RICO.
I proceeded to call Mr. Berg, her attorney, and tell him that I was very proud of what he was doing and wished him and her all the best. Just words
of encouragement, because I knew if he and Ellen were right then we (America) were in for a long hard fight to stop this juggernaut millitary
So there, in a nutshell, is how I came to be 'anti-war', which is a strange position to hold for a warrior.
There, in a nutshell is how I came to question the official 911 story, which is a strange position for a patriot.
There in a nutshell is what eventually led me here, to ATS.
