Hey, listen, I'm former military and I'm searching for the true perpetrators of 9/11/2001 just as strongly as any of you.
It's clear to me that the official story is false, what's not clear to me is that this necessitates our own government being responsible.
I'm familiar with the capabilities of foreign paramilitary and intelligence groups and you'd be surprised at just how much they could do, even in
the United States. If the United States paramilitary operators were capable of doing this then it's entirely reasonable to assume that foreign groups
of similar levels of training could achieve similar results.
Because I served, I find it unlikely that the government would have the appropriate motivation to do this. The government is lying, but their lie may
not be malicious in intent.
If you do not think that foreign interests spread disinformation and attempt to create distrust among the American people about what happened
on 9/11/2001 then you are naive. Just as our Special Activities Division and other paramilitary as well as special forces and special operations and
special warfare teams go out and spread disinformation in order to advance the interests of the United States of America, the USA is a huge target
You are being foolish if you think that the government lying to you about something equates to the government being responsible for something, and
evidence for the former, while generally disturbing, is not evidence for the other.
In my research, and I'll admit I'm very new here, I have not seen anything to suggest in any conclusive fashion that the United States government or
United States special interests perpetrated 9/11/2001.
It could even be that a rogue organization within the United States government perpetrated these attacks, and that Al Qaeds was expressly invented to
hide this, that the United States took care of the rogue group, but could not, for the sake of national security, reveal that this had occurred in any
Stating that a rogue group within the United States successfully carried out an attack of this magnitude would in fact seem like a reasonable cause
(or at least I could see it being argued as one) for hiding the truth, so to speak.
Still, I believe in disclosure, and that is why I look for the truth myself.
I hope that you can understand this viewpoint, that just because the "truther" side has a lot of momentum stating not only that the US lied,
the that the US did it and how this is potentially a very dangerous combination, and how only the latter requires the former.
Just because one possible reason for the government to lie about 9/11 is that it was the perpetrator does not mean that it must be the reason, nor
does it mean it's even the most likely reason.
You cannot get too riled up in fearmongering, even from the 'truther' side. That is how disinformation really works. You expose a lie of your
enemy and then create a lie to go along with the credibility you have established in exposing the entity you are trying to harm.
I'm sure you know what half-truths are, I will not raise up arms against those who I believe are not out to harm us. The federal government is not
designed in such a way as to make this easy to carry out, even with the gang of eight and senators and reps not being allowed to speak out against CIA
activities, or black ops, or domestic ops, they must still be briefed.
With these briefings, I can assure you, some of these men would have been willing to get charged with treason to reveal such an atrocity and abuse of
government power. Perhaps not only out of bravery, but out of the knowledge that should a whistleblower like that appear, the United States public
would not let harm come to him regardless of the stipulations regarding the information he was releasing, regardless of how 'classified' it was,
since he would be seen as someone who was truly protecting the national security, and his silence orders invalid.
