Hmm. It shouldn't be. Simply tot up the amount of evidence for each proposition and all will - or should - become clear.
In my own words I will describe the Evidence for each proposition. If you don't know how to Google for sources I'm sure there's a tutorial
somewhere, and I will provide the link if needed...
Ground Zero toxic dust:
The EPA tested the the quality of air at ground zero and found that it is toxic and unsafe to breathe without protection... White House made them edit
the reports and tell people that the air was safe to breathe knowing that the toxins will cause cancer for which there is no cure. (i.e. people will
The Government told people that Iraq has WMD's and asked people to imagine a scenario where ~~ Al Qaeda (the group of terrorists that hijacked four
airplanes and used them as weapons to kill 3000 civilians by destroying three skyscrapers, and even successfully attacking the Pentagon) get the
WMD's from a psycho dictator who hates America and already used WMD's on his own people in the past.
The people imagined that scenario (basically the end of the world) and said to the government ~~~WHOLY SHI* ! We all gonna die ! The Government said
to the people ~~ don't worry we have a lot of weapons, all we need to do is go to Iraq and get the WMD's before it's too late.. The people said to
the government ~~~ WOW that makes us feel safer already... Lets do it !
So we go over there and start looking for the WMD's but we can't find it.. The Government said ~~the WMD's are definitely there, we need more time.
People said ~~~Okay here's more time.. But as time goes on more and more troops come home dead and more and more money is being spent people find
out that the story of Iraq having WMD's was made up by an informant and the Government pretty much knew that it wasn't true and didn't even try to
collaborate the informers' story (because it didn't really matter since they wanted to go into Iraq anyway).
The people were like ~~~WHOLLY SHI* Government! That's totally not cool ! Are you going to stop the war or what?
The Government said ~~~NOPE ! The People said ~~~Oh that's okay just don't do it again.
Tuesday morning September 11, 2001 Some people arrived at work and some people board airplanes when all of a sudden they get murdered in horrific
act of war (only not by an army with tanks and bombs) but somebody with hijacked commercial airliners. Other people are rushing in to rescue the
victims of this attack while the entire world is watching in shock what is happening when all of a sudden huge skyscrapers collapse killing thousands
The Government said to the scared and angry and heart broken people ~~~ America and freedom itself is under attack by terrorists and we have no idea
how this happened because we never even imagined that this type of attack could happen. Nobody waned us and we had no indications that hijacked planes
would be used to kill innocent people. It was a surprise. The people said ~~~ yeah that is pretty unbelievable that airplanes would be used. Just make
sure this will never happen again. As time went on the people find out that in reality this wasn't a surprise at all and said ~~~ Hey Government WTF
? And the Government said to the people ~~~Yeah we kinda lied about almost everything that happened before the attacks but we only did it because we
didn't want you to know that we are really incompetent. Surely you people understand why we lied.. The people said ~~ yeah that's okay just don't
do it again..
As time goes on people like Richard Clarke, Michael Scheuer and Lt Col Anthony Shaffer and many others keep writing books about how the Government had
multiple opportunities to prevent 9/11 but willingly refused to do it and kept ignoring warning after warning for some reason. And the people are like
~~~ the Government is so incompetent that they can only start wars not prevent them.
To sum it up... I have a question, what is the difference between actions that resulted with Americans getting cancer even though it could have been
prevented, actions that resulted in Americans going to war even though it could have been avoided if they checked the source of the WMD story, and
actions that resulted in 3000 American citizens and residents being murdered even though it could have been prevented by responding to all the
warnings of a planned attack?
