With US mid-term
elections one month away, it is not surprising to find Washington�s elite
criminal factions (neocon and neoliberal) engaged in a new game of political
chicken over 9/11 red herrings. The appearance of bickering hides the fact that
operatives of both factions are lying. Both sides are cynically continuing the
massive bipartisan cover-up of 9/11 and the �war on terrorism."
Undeniable fact: all of Washington �knew� about
It is an amply
documented fact -- no news whatsoever -- that the Bush administration had
absolute foreknowledge of 9/11, and deliberately ignored warnings received
within the US and from officials and intelligence agencies outside the US.
As written by
Michel Chossudovsky, �the foreknowledge issue itself is a red herring, a
fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention
from the original issue . . . Of course the Bush administration knew." Of
course Washington �knew� about its own false flag operation. Of course
Washington �knew� about using its own covert intelligence network. Of course
Washington �knows� that 9/11 was an intelligence �success," not an
spotlight on �foreknowledge� and �lapses� serve to distract public attention
from the deliberate cover-up of these facts:
- 9/11 and the �war on terrorism� was and
is a long-planned US operation carried out and sponsored by Washington
consensus; official US geostrategic policy, carried out by the Bush
administration, with unanimous bipartisan involvement from the US
Congress, and with support from Wall Street.
- �Islamic terrorism," including Osama
bin Laden and Al-Qaeda,
is a creation of Anglo-American military intelligence. These networks have
functioned in this role for the past two decades, and continue to carry
out this role today.
- Al-Qaeda is an apparatus that is
supported by Pakistan�s ISI, which is itself is connected to the CIA.
- Pakistan�s ISI chief, General Mahmoud
Ahmad, who wired funds for the 9/11 operation to alleged 9/11 ringleader
Mohammed Atta, met and dined with members of the Bush administration, the
CIA (George Tenet), and key members of the US Congress, Republicans as
well as Democrats. In other words, Washington
in its entirety is implicated in 9/11.
And this is just
the bare tip of the iceberg of evidence.
Chossudovsky�s America�s �War on Terrorism� and Michael C. Ruppert�s Crossing
the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire At The End of The Age Of Oil exhaustively
detail why 9/11 happened, how the Bush administration carried it out, who has
benefited, and what has happened to the world since. The case material
contained in these two books alone, and at their related web sites (Center for Research on Globalization
and From The Wilderness), leave
no doubt that Washington is engaged in a massive and ever-more sophisticated
cover-up, designed to smash remaining criminal evidence, destroy investigations
and criticism, selectively eradicate history, and dispel and manipulate public discourse.
undeniable proven facts, the current Washington disinformation circus is all
the more cynical and contemptible.
Foreknowledge: irrelevance, regurgitated
The new book, State
of Denial, written by infamous Washington insider, opportunist and
disinformation asset Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, has set off a new media circus over 9/11 foreknowledge and �ignored and
missed warnings� on the part of key members of the Bush administration. The
�Bush incompetence� lie is the centerpiece of the neoliberal faction�s �war on
terrorism� agenda, the central deception favored by the Democrats and
The latest �fire
storm� merely underscores the long-proven fact that the malignant Condoleezza
Rice committed perjury about 9/11, and that Rice, Donald Rumsfeld
and then-Attorney General John Ashcroft knew of the coming attacks in the
summer of 2001. (CIA Director George Tenet, of course, �knew," and has
lately done his best to recast himself as one of the �good guys.")
In turn, this is
sending members of the 9/11
Commission cover-up, such as Richard Ben-Veniste and Jamie Gorelick,
scrambling to defend their own malfeasance with their own set of conflicting
The new stories
simple prove what is already known: the consensus is engaged in an obvious
political cover-up, with players from both neocon and neoliberal factions
reading from the same script, dancing to the same tune, taking turns playing
�good cop/bad cop� -- lying every step of the way.
Clinton vs. Bush redux
Woodward book comes in the wake of a new attempt by the Clinton and Bush camps
to reinvent a �rivalry." Clinton�s �blistering� TV tirade against the
Republicans, and the Bush administration�s counterattack adds to the false
debate -- the red herring -- over who could have �stopped Osama bin
This is public
posturing to fool the American people into perceiving one side or the other of
being stronger �anti-terrorists" and which side is more capable of �making
In addition to
hiding the historical fact that the Bushes and Clintons have deep and
long-standing criminal ties (taking turns heading criminal Washington for
decades), this campaign deliberately clouds the fact that �Islamic terrorism�
is an intelligence apparatus fully supported by Washington consensus for
over two decades. Both wings of the American Empire are intent on expanding the
�war on terrorism," and making America itself an overt police state.
New level of cover-up of Pakistan-US connection
Woodward is not the only insider with a 9/11 book. Pakistan�s Pervez Musharraf
has come out with his own book, a cynical manipulation accusing former US Deputy Secretary of
Armitage of threatening Pakistan with a �bomb you back into the stone age�
threat that �forced� Pakistan�s cooperation with the �war on terrorism."
exposed by Mike
Ruppert of From the Wilderness, this bombshell of cooked half-truths
and lies is a massive deception and sheer political smoke and mirrors that
provide political cover for �adjusted� American Middle East geostrategy,
recasting Pakistan (and its CIA-affiliated ISI) as a �reluctant� ally of the
US, while hanging out Armitage (as the bully and war criminal that Washington already
knows he is) -- in full knowledge that the American public doesn�t know and
doesn�t care anyway.
administration is so threatened about this �bombshell book," that the
giddy George W. Bush stood at the podium with Musharraf and encouraged people
to buy the book. Peals of laughter are surely echoing through the halls of
Langley, and Capitol Hill.
Denial and cover-up by consensus
While the players
of one faction or the other tell bald-faced out in the open, one brands the
other incompetent or inattentive in the �war on terrorism," the
Washington/Wall Street consensus has been unshakeable and ironclad: Lie about
9/11, a fully bipartisan atrocity. Cover it up permanently, adding new layers,
and limited hangout versions to suit political expediency. Continue and
strengthen the �war on terrorism� in any way that expands Anglo-American
geopolitical resource interests. Cook the American populace slowly and surely.
As pointed out by
Michael Kane of From The Wilderness,
�the American Republic is long dead, and
fascism is no longer creeping in this country -- it is solidified and
documented as the law of the land."

The true �state of denial� is one that fails to
recognize this, five years and a world war later.
