Five years ago, on September 11, 2001, the George W. Bush administration and its allies and functionaries carried out the spectacular mass murder of 3,000 US citizens, establishing the pretext to unleash an unprecedented worldwide rampage of criminality, and a permanent war of conquest (the manufactured �war on terrorism�) that continues to escalate.

Five years later, the planners, operatives and beneficiaries of the 9/11 murders, led by George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, remain unpunished, their hubris undimmed, as they plan new campaigns of destruction, in the name of the original criminal act that they themselves carried out.

Five years later, in the wake of its 9/11 atrocity, the Bush administration has transformed the world into a literal hell.

Criminals occupy the top positions of power. The annihilation and conquest of nations, the cleansing of entire populations, and torture, are official policy. Criminal covert operations explode on a daily basis throughout the world, carried out (and blamed on) by �terrorists� created, guided and controlled by intelligence apparatuses (CIA, Pakistan ISI, �Al-Qaeda," Osama, etc.) beholden to no authority. Corruption poisons the fabric of modern society. The Constitution, a memory. Laws are broken. Or they are simply gutted and rewritten by the criminals themselves (giving them eternal power). Elections, routinely manipulated to begin with, are openly seized by force. America is a police state. Central Asia and the Middle East, in flames. The public is controlled with propaganda, distortion, and cover-up, while purveyors of truth, whistleblowers and investigative journalists are targeted for intimidation and assassination. All this, courtesy of Bush�s 9/11.

This reign of terror is criminality�s triumph.

Bush-Cheney: guilty beyond any reasonable doubt

The editors of this publication, and its many associates around the world, sounded the alarm that a George W. Bush presidency would usher in an unprecedented era of tyranny, criminality, and death. We were right.

In the eyes of anyone with even a modest grasp of deep political realities, 9/11 was the grotesque and obvious (sloppy) work of the Bush administration; not an �intelligence failure� but an intelligence success, made even more successful thanks to the ignorance of a fearful, poorly educated and easily manipulated American populace. The facts have more than amply proven it.

Michel 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. Let a true commemoration of 9/11 begin and end with these two definite prosecutions, along with the material contained at their related web sites (Center for Research on Globalization and From The Wilderness). Until and unless the accused criminal forces succeed in shutting down these resources, the proof is there for all to see.

The facts lead directly to the offices of the Bush administration, not �outside enemies� or �al-Qaeda." The facts expose the entire �war on terrorism� as a lie. The tidal wave of 9/11 propaganda and deception cannot wash them away.

To accept any aspect of the US government�s account of 9/11, whether it is the brutal deceptions of the Bush administration (and the equally complicit neoliberal faction of the US elite), the limited hangout and cover-up of the 9/11 commission, or any of the incoherent �anti-conspiracy� ramblings of Left progressive �intellectuals," is to condone murder, and the absolute rule of criminals.

Tipping point

Today, as the contemptible and insane George W. Bush spews more Orwellian lies, as the lieutenants and enforcers of his �godfather� administration shamelessly evoke 9/11 -- dancing once again on the graves of thousands -- the perpetrators of the original atrocity are hard at work planning more.

Dick Cheney recently declared, as if describing himself: �The enemy that struck on 9/11 is fractured and weakened, yet still lethal, still determined to hit us again.� Cheney would very much like to hit America with a �new 9/11," a new false flag atrocity, as the Bush administration sets up the pretext for a multi-front war across the Middle East and the rest of the Eurasian continent, and another attempt at Hugo Chavez and Venezuela (by the end of the year).

In the Pentagon�s own words, �another 9/11 attack could create both a justification and an opportunity to retaliate against some known targets." Five years have gone by since the manufactured crisis of 9/11. Now, the Anglo-American empire needs a �new 9/11� or a perceived threat capable of deceiving the public into supporting the next planned geostrategic horror.

As this writer previously warned, this is a moment of elite criminal consensus, and unprecedented danger:

�The Bush administration wants to attack Iran and Syria by October. Israel is going into Lebanon, but cannot expand beyond southern Lebanon, cannot attack Syria and Iran, without Anglo-American help. A US election (or �selection�) in November, likely to hand some degree of political power back to neoliberal (Democrats), gives the Bush-Cheney neocons a three-month window to attempt their super-violent end run.�

Today, as it was in the days leading up to 9/11/01, all eyes should be on the only criminals with the means, motive and opportunity. All eyes should be on the Bush administration.
