Nearly 10 years later it takes little discernment to learn that the Official Report of 9/11( mp3 ) is not true. How is it that so much first hand knowledge, experience and evidence are a night and day contrast to, or omitted from, the Official Report?
Following a yearlong campaign by the Family Steering Committee for its formation, The 9/11 Commission, from its formation, The 9/11 Commission, from its formation in 2002, and increasingly since the release of the Official Report in 2004 have distanced themselves from the process, noting its conflicts of interest and the report itself, critcizing the reports accuracy and the process of information it was able to attain.
“at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened” – John Farmer. ( The Ground Truth: The Untold Story of America Under Attack on 9/11)
“I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described.” “The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true.”- John Farmer (Washington Post)
“The President has said only a minority of the Commission can see a minority of the documents and then they have to clear what they have to clear what they are going to say for the rest of the Commission with the White House” It’s a scam, it’s absolutely disgusting.” – Max Cleland (Video)
Why would Government Officials, Military Personnel and other persons of interest interviewed by the Commission knowingly use deception to prove the Official Report true?
There is little doubt that 9/11 altered Foreign and Domestic Policy of the United States, not to mention our own individual political landscape . To this day 9/11 is used as thee political trump card. If the Commissioners and Council were/are unable to identify 9/11 facts from 9/11 fiction, how were/can our elected represenatives of the people make informed decisions, many historically pinnacle? What if our most challenging decisions and opinions in regards to The War on Terror, torture, the creation of The Homeland Security Department, The Patriot Act, recent Foreign and Domestic Policy, much of it reactionary, defining our economy and dependent upon taxation of the people, our recent political past and future are in actuallity based on a false understanding of this initiating event.
With the release of the commissions report in 2004, the 9/11 Family Steering Committee was left with 70% of its questions submitted to the Commission unanswered leaving it far from the “full and complete account of the curcumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 attacks” it was tasked to be.
These unanswered questions echoed many from concerned citizens of the world, who at sometime after the emotional flag waving on 9/12 and Shock and Awe started to ask questions of their own. Picking up where for some reason the media has left off, a media that “started its job on 9/11 and got waylaid”, and started focusing on those asking questions about the event instead of the event itself. What had been somewhat of a grassroots movement became noticeably a worldwide movement of watch dog like observation, citizen journalism and first hand thinking that Time Magazine called “not a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream political reality.”
In the years since this tragic event this world wide movement includes a growing body of professionals who question the events of 9/11. First responders and the familys of, many sick and have experienced first hand the beuracratic failures while trying to get assistance for medical bills after spending hours in rescue operations atop the rubble of the twin towers. Military and Intelligence officials, Government Whistle Blowers with first hand experience of red flag events. Eye and ear witnesses, many Fire and Police Professionals who have had thier record of 9/11 experiences supressed only to be released under FOIA requests. Wall Street experts pointing at more than just unprecedented financial gains requiring improbable coincidences. Over 1,500 Architects and Engineers questioning the collapse of the 3 WTC Skyscrapers. Fire Fighters noting the disregard of basic fire investigation protocol and Physicsits examing the finest particles of dust samples from ground zero and surrounding areas finding exotic accelerants, nano-thermite.

As persuasive as the information and individuals may be, it is not enough to accept these word over any others at face value. If your own questions have led you here for the moment, we should recognize that at one time we in some way all trusted what our representatives said and medias reported but your own critical thinking has given you questions that aren’t answered just yet. With or without a broader political context in mind, allow ourselves the courtesy to consider building our own perspective of these tragic events. Rediscovering just a few bits of now easily available information confirms the need to reconsider how we get our news and information. Together, we can go beyond just asking questions. Learning together, answering larger, looming questions, contributing to answers and taking the responsibility of peaceful meaningful action.
