Green Party’s Jill Stein Pledges ‘Truth’ About 9/11 Attacks if Elected … US Green Party Presidential bid Jill Stein claimed that as an elected president she would launch a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks, because the probe carried out during the George W. Bush Administartion “defrauded the nation.” -Sputnik
Jill Stein is correct about the Bush administration “defrauding the nation.” This is not actually her accusation but one leveled by Rutger’s Dean John Farmer who was team leader for the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9/11 Commission).
Some seven years, he ago published a book that basically accused the entire Washington establishment of lying about 9/11. We wrote about it here. And here’s an excerpt from an article we quoted from the Salem-News:
The 9/11 Commission Rejects own Report as Based on Government Lies … In John Farmer’s book: “The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America’s Defense on 9/11″, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version… is almost entirely untrue …
The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined … by John Farmer [who] was responsible for drafting the original flawed 9/11 report. …
Farmer states…”at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened… I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described. …
The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story than what had been told to us and the public for two years.
… Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission…”
In another article entitled, “Conspiracies Theories are gaining momentum, we wrote this:
There are literally hundreds of other issues that have been raised on the ‘Net regarding 9/11 … Suspicion remains in force for millions, and suspicion can turn to paranoia. … A new investigation into 9/11 would go a long way to dispelling confusion and, perhaps, defusing tensions.
So you can see, above, that back in 2010 we suggested a new investigation, just as Stein has called for now:
In a statement published on her campaign site, Stein said that Americans “want and deserve a comprehensive and independent” probe into the 9/11, which they haven’t gotten so far …
The report conducted by 9/11 Commission in 2004 … had scores of “omissions and distortions” that, in fact, worked to whitewash the facts.
… She [suggested an inquiry and] said a separate commission on 9/11, consisting of people with no interest “in protecting the reputation and careers of foreign affairs and intelligence communities,” would be gathered.
Of course many will argue that expecting anything to come from a new commission is naive. The so-called “deep state” will not let anything of note occur. We disagree with this. A new commission can feasibly be supported and would doubtless alert tens of millions to accusations that the committee members themselves have disavowed the report that they created.
Of course, no new, formal investigation is likely to uncover the “truth” of 9/11. But at this point so many years later one can argue – controversially – that continued exposure (rather than the impractical goal of unimpeachable truth) is the goal.
9/11 continues to provide evidence of what has gone wrong with American society. Unarguably, representatives of a broad cross-section of government purposefully lied over months to public investigators and have continued to lie. A new commission would not certainly not “solve” 9/11 but it would alert people to a fact pattern that is clearly aligned with other controversial events that have taken place since then.
People are not idiots and the Internet itself has made many aware of the larger trends inhospitable to freedom. It is one reason that the Supreme Court as well as the executive and legislative branches of fedgov are held in such low esteem.
Anything that further exposes untruths is surely to be encouraged at this point. Such information will galvanize individual and community activity.
Of course, here at DB we are not looking for a revolution, merely continued enlightenment about what is really taking place. People can act on this on their own, as they surely will by further withdrawing their support from the current system. That’s how real sociopolitical and economic change takes place – one citizen at a time.
Conclusion: Stein has the right idea. It’s about as much as can be expected to happen within a formal context. Too bad Stein will never be in a position to implement her suggestion.,
