8th Anniversary of 9/11 come and gone

I was quite busy answering questions on 9/11 to curious friends that I neglected my blog. What is there to say about this anniversary? Namely, that the powers that be gear-up each September 11 to sweep the events of 9/11 under the rug of history; effectively burying dissenting voices, the swarming multitudes, on the subject. All the major corporate media outlets repeat and hammer into the ground the government blessed conspiracy theory of 9/11. Dissenters are regularly derided and slandered.

9/11 is now treated as a religious ceremony with all the trimmings of ritual. Obama pays homage to the dead with symbols and carefully crafted words meant to stir emotion, and above all, loyalty to the American wars of 9/11 (while firmly reinforcing the images which created the "official" lie of 9/11). Let us not forget, that the nearly 3,000 that died on 9/11 were just the beginning of the greater number that have died because of 9/11; and will continue to suffer.

The occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, CIA secret prisons, torture, renditions, rumors of wars, the growing police state, etc., go on and on. The truth of what happened on September 11, 2001 matter a great deal to the lives of posterity and the world.
