It’s now been 17 years. And I’m not going into the convoluted details or theories surrounding the event. By now, any intelligent person who has done some very basic research and didn’t let their emotional belief system overrule their logic can easily conclude the government is lying to us about 9/11. Instead I want to invite everyone to do something different. Stop looking for the trails of sawdust on the ground and start looking at the forest in front of you. Look at the big picture. Look at the draconian laws that have been passed in the name of protecting you. Look at the militarization of domestic law enforcement as they roll around your city in their MRAP’s. Look at the virtual cage of surveillance that has been built with cameras on every street corner and every electronic communique monitored and tracked. Look at how your spouse and children are treated like cattle and virtually strip searched at the airport. Look at the endless war being waged and the scars it has left on our generation of men and women as you observe a local veteran struggling to find his or her way through life after serving. Look at the countries in the Middle East that are completely devastated from decades of war. Look at the population that has accepted all this as a heavy but necessary price to keep them safe from the manufactured external enemy. Stop and look. Look at the big picture. Then ask yourself this question: WHO BENEFITS? Who gained the most from the last 17 years? If you do your research with that question in mind, you will find out who is behind it all. Or maybe you don’t have to do any research. Maybe your intuition is sharp and the grey matter between your ears is lighting up on all cylinders. Maybe you can just glance at the forest and arrive at the answer.
“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”

I just want to take a moment to remember those that perished on September 11, 2001 and those that will forever carry both the physical and mental scars from the blackest day in our history. I pray that someday the full truth of what happened will be revealed to the world and the real criminals be brought to justice. I also want to remember what we lost that nobody seems to care about. For that day was truly the day that Freedom died in America.
