Our Truth is a Command Toward Freedom: Connecting ” ‘9/11’ ” to The ” ‘War On Terror,’ ” 1.4 Billion Rounds and 30,000 Drones

The Journal of 9/11 Studies Letters, December 2012

Marie Harrison, former columnist for the San Francisco Bay View and a co- founder of Housing Is a Human Right, used to say with irony about a point or reality that she wished would be obvious to those whom she was trying to reach: “I’m trying to tell you.”

We of the movement that’s come to be known as “9/11 Truth” have been trying to tell the world, over the past decade, about obvious holes in the Official Story for the crimes of September 11, 2001 in the United States.

We’ve largely succeeded, I think.

Our efforts through books and other print-media, websites, DVDs, and personal appearances have made obvious realities about September 11, 2001 widely known. Our facts-based questioning of the plainly impossible Official Conspiracy Theory (or O. C.T.) is now shared by a majority in the U.S. and by a much greater majority of the Earth’s population.

We’ve noted that jet fuel can’t burn hot enough to even begin deformation of columns and beams of structural steel that are as much as four feet thick in their breadth. We’ve shown debris of each descending Twin Tower fall at the same speed as the skyscraper is plummeting straight-down, through its structure of columns and beams. We’ve pointed out telling details such as spews and pools of molten metal within the event and the aftermath of each Twin Towers’ destruction.

We’ve pointed out that for buildings to explode into dust–100-micron size particles within two seconds of the onset of each Twin Towers’ destruction, as one matter of fact–these buildings must have been exploded into dust by something more powerful than Potential Gravitational Energy.

We’ve noted that World Trade Center Building 7 also descended into its own footprint at a speed very near free-fall, at 5:20 on the afternoon of 9/11/01, though this 47-story skyscraper lacked the distracting assistance of an airliner’s crash into it. We’ve noted that telltales of rooftop inversion and serial squibs in Building 7’s implosion also reveal this building’s destruction to be a textbook example of controlled demolition.

We’ve followed the money, too, in exposing realities that are diametrically opposed to the Official Story for ” ‘9/11’ “.

We’ve shown who and what within institutions of the United States and the world have profited most, both from the destruction of buildings on 9/11/01 and from the ” ‘War on Terror’ ” that ” ‘9/11’ ” precipitated.

We’ve noted that beneficiaries of insurance policies for the World Center Center’s Twin Towers and Building 7 were and are among executives at the heart of profiting both from Manhattan real-estate and the 21st-century’s much-expanded wars in Central Asia and the Middle East: Larry Silverstein, Peter G. Peterson of the Blackstone Group, the General Motors Assistance Corporation, and Banc of America Securities.

We’ve traced the much greater profits that have come from much-expanded opium crops in Afghanistan after the ” ‘War on Terror’ ” began.

We’ve traced the most central builders of New York City’s World Trade Center and the most likely operatives and orchestrators of the mass murders on September 11, 2001 back to the same institutions, the same interlocked Corporations, the same more-or-less secret societies (such as Yale University’s Skull & Bones), and the same inter-marrying families.

We’ve noted these families’ involvement and profiteering from acts of false-flag terror and political assassination and international bloodshed over more than 100 years. We’ve shown that criminal maneuvers of networks led by such families (e.g. Bush, Harriman, Rockfeller, Rothschild, Sachs, Schiff, Tudor, Warburg) continue to compel nations and peoples into wars.

We’ve noted that these ceaselessly provoked wars perpetuate a system of enslaving debt that is itself cruel and unsustainable.

In short, the great, desperate pretext of ” ‘9/11′ ” has brought many of us to reveal layers of global financiers’ empire, the most secretive and oppressive empire in history.

Now a great majority around the world see through the Big Lie of 9/11. Since 2006 polls by even Corporate Stream Media in even the United States show majorities of 2/3 and more doubting the Official Story for the day which saved the

The Journal of 9/11 Studies Letters, December 2012


Western world’s largest debt-holding Banks from imminent self-destruction under their 2001-load of “derivatives.” [1]

That we share this knowledge is our hope for the future.

That the majority of people in even the United States’ surround-scape of media- brainwashing still recognize demolitions for what they obviously are is a great source of hope and validation.

We need to keep telling our truths. We need to keep pointing out holes in Official Stories. We need to keep confronting monsters. We need to keep seeing straight and raising our voices.

One reality we can continue to tell is that ” ‘9/11’ ” and the ” ‘War on Terror’ ” are both absurd but murderous pretexts. They’re rotten root and rotten branch.

The ” ‘9/11’ ” rotten root and the ” ‘War on Terror’ ” rotten branch run through both Republican and Democrat Administrations.

” ‘9/11’ ” begat the domestic “War on Terror” against civil liberties: the PATRIOT Act of 2001, the Homeland Security Bill of 2002, the National Identity Card Act of 2004, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 [2], Presidential Directives 20 and 51 of 2007, and the domestic deployment of 4700 U.S. Infantry during passage of the TARP Bill that bailed out debts-laden Banks and other creditor Corporations (AIG, Chase, Citi, Goldman Sachs, … UBS), ‘domestic’, ‘foreign’, and altogether supranational, under George W. Bush. [3]

The ” ‘9/11’ ” / ” ‘War on Terror’ ” rotten root-and-branch also begat the international wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that have killed thousands unto millions and left more millions crippled and/or addicted.

The first great Big Lie of ” ‘9/11’ ” has begat many more Big Lies.

The rotten pretext of ” ‘9/11’ “for the ” ‘War on Terror’ ” has allowed ‘indefinite detention’ without Charges or Trial to be to be established as his un-Constitutional right by Barack Obama in 2009 [4], followed by extra-judicial assassination of U.S. citizens abroad through this President’s “kill-list” in 2010 and 2011 [5, 6], followed by this President’s signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) as we entered 2012. The American Civil Liberties Union wrote about the

The Journal of 9/11 Studies Letters, December 2012


NDAA: ‘The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.’ [7]

In 2012 we’ve seen the Department of Homeland Security and its subsidiary Transportation Security Administration order 1.4 billion rounds of hollow-point bullets (an order that could equal at least four gunshots into every citizen of the United States) and the U.S. Army, through section 1097 of the NDAA, order six bases for airborne drones’ ‘directed mission support’ across the U.S. [8, 9]

This year, too, the U.S. Congress passed the Federal Aviation Agency Reauthorization Act. The FAA coincidentally projects that ‘30,000 drones could be in nation’s skies by 2020.’ [10]

The afore-noted1.4 billion rounds and these projected 30,000 drones are both results of the rotten root of ” ‘9/11’ ” and its fraudulent, freedoms-killing ” ‘War on Terror’ ” branch.

Likewise the re-installed Obama Administration’s combination of cowardly murder by proxy (the President’s “kill-list” or ‘disposition matrix’) and the National Counterterrorism Center and its “massive, secretive data collection and mining of trillions of points of data about most people in the United States” extend powers and invasiveness of an institutionally terrorist State that were but nascent under the Bush Administration. [11, 12]

In dramatically graphic fact, the Nixon-Carter-Reagan-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama Administrations are united by service to supranational Banks and by their increasing denial of freedoms and powers to people of the United States and the world. Please see charts and specific information in the end-notes. [13, 14, 15, 16]

Our job with ” ‘9/11 Truth’ ” is therefore more vital. Our truth about crimes of September 11, 2001 and the grossest, global murderers behind these crimes become more important as our majority of the informed grows. Our truth becomes more properly dangerous to a criminal status-quo. Our truth threatens that status- quo of a ruling few, the less than 1% of the world’s people, who depend on acts of terror and international and civil wars to feed their pathological and unsustainable systems of theft with more debt and control.

Those less-than-1% feel they need those 1.4 billion rounds and 30,000 drones.

The Journal of 9/11 Studies Letters, December 2012


Our truth about ” ‘9/11’ “is thus like a trust for each of us to know in himself or herself. Our truth is for each of us to carry out with courage and compassion and some good humor. (What salutary thing is Dick Cheney good for except a laugh?) Our truth is like a command toward liberation.

Our truth about ” ‘9/11’ ” will let everyone feel good who acts on what it means and empowers him or her to do.

Pull out the Big Lie to other Big Lies root and branch–expose it and its absurd but horrific ” ‘New World Order’ ” consequences to more and more scorn–and we’ll continue to do our job and move toward freedom through technology and cooperation.

—————————————————————————————– Sometime before the first personal computer and tanning-salon, Don Paul was the youngest winner of a Wallace Stegner Fellowship in Creative Writing at Stanford University. He held the World Best for running 50 kilometers between 1982 and 1992. He first began to write about crimes of September 11, 2001 in six columns for the San Francisco Bay View between September and December 2001. He could not help but conclude, then, that these crimes amounted to ‘The Greatest and Most Evil Scam in U.S. Ruling-Class History.’ His ” ‘9/11′ “: Facing Our Fascist State came out in 2002. He and Jim Hoffman published Waking Up from Our Nightmare in 2004 and they collaborated with Celestine Star on the DVD “9/11 Guilt” in 2005. In 2007 Don Paul was Chief Prosecutor for the San Diego Citizens’ Grand Jury on the Crimes of September 11, 2001 in New York City (http://stj911.org/paul/SDCGJ_HistoricResults.html). His 2008 essay ‘Becoming Our Government’ was part of the content in the “Why Resistance Is Essential” video by Bill Jablonski. His The World Is Turning, collecting two books and many articles, came out in 2009. In 2010 he wrote an Introduction to Kevin Ryan’s four- part study of ‘Demolition Access to the WTC Towers’
