Strange White Noise: The Secret History of 9/11
I am on retreat in Olema, but I had to write about this a day
before my birthday....
It's been two years since 9/11 and most Americans remain in
a fog about what really happened. But more information is now
coming out via the internet about this difficult day. Two congessional
investigations into 9/11 came to be only because of pressure
from the families of the 9/11 victims. The U.S. government has
refused to cooperate fully with either investigation.
Many of the hearings have been held in secrecy and the witnesses
have not been sworn in. The U.S. government has refused to provide
important evidence or key witnesses citing " executive
privilege. " The 800 page report of the first commission
had huge chunks of blank spaces because this critical information
has been deemed classified. Yet congressional investigators
have learned that Bush administration officials had detailed
information about both the hijackers and the targets three weeks
The American press has ignored the 800 page report which included
warnings to Pentagon officials not to fly on 9/11. The 800 page
report also documents how most of the hijackers got through
the visa procedures with little problem. Two of the hijackers
were actual roommates of an FBI informant. One of the hijackers
even trained at a U.S.military base. Another hijacker was given
extra training by an FAA offical because he was such a bad student.
( FAA=Federal Aviation Authority)
One of the Senators chairing the congessional investigation
criticized the entire 800 page report the sloppy work of the
commission investigating the disaster.
The second congressional commission began holding hearings this
year. This investigation has been under-funded and again has
not taken sworn testimony and has been refused critical information
from the Bush administration. The mainstream media has ignored
these critical lapses in government intelligence and has swallowed
the main line of the Bush administration with little complaint.
War in Afghanistan and Iraq has provided further distraction
from any real in depth investigation into the events leading
to 9/11. The odds are low that there will be televized hearings
into the 9/11 tragedy....we continue to live in a strange world
of white noise.
The physical ecology as you all know can easily be polluted
and cleaning it up is a tough job. Well, the psychic ecology
is no different when misinformation is poured into the media
stream. This is why President Vaclav Havel went on Television
to the then Czech and Slovak nation confessing that the country
had to start from scratch with the truth in order to clean up
the foul psychic air of lies left by the Communists.
There is no Vaclav Havel today in the White House nor is there
any chance that a man like him will ocupy the seat of American
empire anytime soon.
Let us see how things continue to unfold....I'm praying for
all of us.
