To the editor:
Within months after one of Daddy Bush's four sons, Marvin Bush, took charge of security at the Twin Towers, the world we knew ceased to exist. According to professor David Ray Griffin, a trail of disturbing questions concerning high-level government complicity in the tragedies of 9/11 remain officially unaswered: Who told the fighter jets in New Jersey that automatically escort off-course flights to stand-down that day? Who turned the power off at the Twin Towers for one hour on 9/10? Who planted the bombs inside the towers that caused them to collapse after they were each hit by an airliner? Why did a third skyscraper that housed the CIA's New York section office, which was never hit by a plane, also collapse? Who gave the skyjackers a military transponder to evade the automatic missile defense system at the Pentagon? After passengers overpowered the skyjackers on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania, is it true our own Air Force fired upon the airliner? Was 9/11 our government's version of the Nazi's Reichstag Fire in Germany, where the government set fire to a building and blamed it on a terrorist? In short, did a faction within our government pull a coup d'etat of sorts?
We must not surrender to the government's version of what happened on 9/11 just as we would not accept the government's version of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas, 1963. The government said then that Lee Harvey Oswald, a former CIA agent, was responsible for killing the president. The public would not accept the government's ludicrous "magic bullet" theory blaming Oswald and pressed for answers. Sixteen years later, in 1979, a Congressional committee admitted there were "other shooters" that day. Of course, some people remain unmoved that a faction within our government probably assassinated the president.
Official answers to questions about 9/11 are necessary just as official answers to the killing of President Kennedy are necessary because we, as a nation, have been behaving like Nazis since 9/11. We have allowed the government to illegally and criminally invade two defenseless countries, set up Vichy-type puppet governments in them, and bomb two more countries adjacent to them. We have allowed the government to construct secret CIA torture prisons in addition to known concentration camps that deny human rights, especially habeus corpus. Still, some people remain impassive and refuse to hold the government accountable. These are the ones crying loudest today about the effects of not holding government accountable in the past.
We, the people, have spent the last eight years sliding down the slippery slope of a Nazi (National Socialist) police state. As General Motors went, so will the nation, unless the American public demand official answers to what actually happened on 9/11 and put an end to U.S.-led global state terrorism. We simply can't afford to forget our libertarian heritage.
