There are those who scoff at “paranoid conspiracy theories” and in particular ridicule “paranoid conspiracy theorists” as crackpot lunies who need to find a nice comfortable padded cell somewhere to live in. Among those crackpot lunies are now included thousands of engineers, physical chemists, and architects who have come together to produce a new movie: http://www.ae911truth.org/. I have not had the opportunity to do anything directly in commemoration of the attrocities of 9/11/01, so I will just take a few minutes to muse on the “State of Deception” in which we all still live.
Our government has, apparently, been little more than a theatrical stage for many years now. For no particular reason I have been reading up on and reviewing the lives and trials of the Japanese War Criminals, in particular Wartime Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, ultimately hanged for war crimes in 1948, and Prince Higashikuni Naruhiko, who lived to the ripe old age of 102 and died in 1990. Apparently the entire saga of the U.S. Occupation of Japan and the war crimes trials was a staged event, and nobody with real knowledge ever thought even for a moment that Tojo was in any sense more culpable than the Prince, or for that matter, even the Emperor Showa (Hirohito) himself. General MacArthur and the occupying forces just made their decisions about who should be the scapegoats and who should conveniently survive to lend legitimacy and continuity. This is all apparently so well known that it is confirmed even in Wikipedia, but it is scandalous to anyone with any sense of fairness and equity. Either all of the Japanese High Command were guilty and meritorious of punishment or none of them were. Prince Higashikuni’s speech following the Emperor’s address to the Japanese Diet in August of 1945 was both noble and inspiring, as was the Emperor’s own, but the Prince made it clear that he felt no legitimacy attached to the charges of War Crimes.
Likewise in Nuremberg, 1945-46, there was a travesty of War Crimes Justice against the German High Command. I have studied those trials throughout my life, and concluded that “all the world’s a stage” with some parts scripted and filmed worse than others. But what I now wonder is what if anything can be done to make a more “just” end to the events of 9-11-01 before all the principles are dead or suffer from Alzheimer’s.
The bottom line on 9-11 is that if you believe Osama bin Laden and a team of poorly trained ideologues from Egypt and Saudi Arabia pulled it off, you would do better to go back to believing in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, because gifts are often real but Osama’s role in 9-11 (as other than the patsy/figurehead) was never even remotely real.
Without any doubt in the world, George W. Bush and Richard Cheney and quite a few others in the “American High Command” on 9-11 deserve to hang, or even to be granted exemptions from the 8th Amendment’s prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, for the crimes of murder and deception perpetrated on the American people. Few in the Western World have been so gullible.
President Barack Obama’s continuing role in the 9-11 coverup earns him a place on the gallows right beside Bush and Cheney, even if nothing else he had done (like the invasion of Libya) did.
When will the American people wakeup and demand that Justice be Done to the REAL perpetrators of 9-11? I certainly do not pretend to know all the details, but the Theatre of 9-11 has been just as clumsily administered as the trial testimony of Tojo—who apparently started telling the truth about Imperial responsibility during his own testimony and had to be coached by the American prosecutors to go back and recant his unintended “veracity.” As noted, you need look no further than Wikipedia for the manipulation of Tojo’s testimony, but no source I have encountered even questions the complete falsity of his testimony or trial. It was a script, nothing more, just like what will be read at so many 9-11 memorials all over the United States and certain “cooperating” countries in Europe.
I admire the French, who led the world, among nations, as 9-11 skeptics. The French, perhaps, are (on account of their own history) less squeamish about beheading and torturing their formers leaders than others in Western Europe and North America, and it is time to follow the French Example…..
