- The only sound in the darkness was the voice of a woman
on the phone outlining her plans to awaken a sleeping citizenry with an
accurate video version of the crime of the century. But when a man listens
to a woman, he often doesn't hear her words, but instead drifts off into
the uncharted narrative of his own dreams.
- Fifty years ago I stood in the kitchen of my childhood.
The giant glass of milk I always consumed before bedtime had accidentally
crashed onto the kitchen floor, spewing a white Rorschach blot across the
checkered linoleum. I loved milk, I told her. But her voice chided through
the line: no adult animal drinks milk; it isn't healthy, because the excess
protein putrefies in your digestive tract and catalyzes all manner of debilitating
- So we learn what we thought was essential to our well-being
may in reality be a recipe for needless misery, not to mention serious
injury. This passing thought, this shattered glass in my memory, got me
thinking about what we once learned was good and life-giving can with the
right information lead to the realization that we are killing ourselves
because we remain ignorant of basic facts.
- This evolving image coalesced in my mind as she talked
about the need to convince people that 9/11 was really an inside job inflicted
on the American people by our own leaders. Hence this thought: what we
thought was good and pure can, without accurate information, actually be
a poison that we eagerly and happily guzzle down.
- I have long insisted that the heart-wrenching trauma
that was 9/11 is the key to understanding both the past and the future
of American history. If you choose to accept the official version of these
horrible events, you are continuing to ingest a poison that has killed
millions of innocent people, and will surely kill millions more.
- Once you begin to contemplate the notion that our own
leaders callously engineered the whole tragedy simply to advance their
own greedy agenda, you open up a very unsettling window into the predatory
behavior of the United States, both throughout its bloody, falsely reported
history, and obviously also to a terrifying future of what America's power-mad
leaders have planned for the rest of the world in the coming months and
- Yet most Americans, willingly distracted by simpler concerns
like children and bank accounts, cannot - or will not - see this, despite
an avalanche of evidence that could, if we had an uncorrupted court system,
convict thousands of rich and famous men of profoundly serious crimes.
- Intellectually stunted by a one-size-fits-all educational
system and constantly deceived by clownlike media that deliberately ignore
certain negative events like fixed elections and toxic medicines, a majority
of the American people simply cannot bring themselves to believe their
leaders could be such cold-hearted villains, such sociopathic criminals.
- Could President Bush, who throbs the hearts of blue-haired
ladies across America and sends squadrons of superficial preachers into
convincingly feigned rhapsodies of Rapture fever, have supervised the murder
of 3,000 Americans just to get his geopolitical way?
- To most Americans who have sworn their allegiance to
their churches and their country, the idea is too preposterous to consider.
Yet this allegiance, based on false information, is, for so many (including
those many Americans who are persuaded to physically fight for their country),
a fatal misstep.
- But when we do open our minds to the endless string of
lies, the towers that couldn't have fallen due to airplane crashes, the
phonecalls that couldn't have been made with existing technology, the so-called
Arabs who never showed up on the passenger lists (allegedly devout Muslims
who ate pork and went to strip clubs), the building that fell for no reason,
the air defenses that failed to respond, the deliberate lies, the stonewalled
investigations, the confiscated videos and tapes that would have more clearly
revealed what happened, and various other pieces of the puzzle that will
never in a million years fit together, we have an inkling that something
is really wrong, regardless of whatever allegiances we may profess.
- That we have not been told the whole truth, and nothing
but the truth.
- And then we recall bits and pieces of history that still
stick in our craws like bad fish. The window opens.
- Historian William Blum always describes these matters
- "From 1945 to 2003, the United States attempted
to overthrow more than 40 foreign governments, and to crush more than 30
populist-nationalist movements fighting against intolerable regimes. In
the process, the U.S. bombed some 25 countries, caused the end of life
for several million people, and condemned many millions more to a life
of agony and despair."
- But one need not lurch into history books to taste that
sour burp of genuine American history. One need only not rely on newspapers
and look elsewhere for unspun info on the American genocides transpiring
this very day in Palestine, Iraq, Haiti, Colombia, Serbia, Afghanistan
and throughout Africa and Asia to acquire an accurate picture of the way
America really works.
- It always comes as a shock to me to realize that today's
majority of the American population was not alive for Watergate, never
mind that tragic spate of assassinations in the Sixties - all of which
were engineered by the same demonic faction of the U.S. government that
exerts its murderous impulses over all of us today.
- So for you young victims of the American public school
system, let me recount just a little of the actual history of your country
that you may, in your media-induced, consumeristic coma, have missed.
- Few Americans know that America's involvement in World
War I was triggered by a deliberate deception known as the sinking of the
Lusitania, which was a passenger ship torpedoed by a German U-boat that
changed public opinion in America from neutral to pro-war. 128 Americans
died and America eventually went to war over the incident, after first
concealing that the Lusitania was covertly carrying ammunition to Britain,
and that fact had been deliberately leaked to German intelligence to assure
a suitable public affront to American dignity.
- Many historians theorize that this period actually signalled
the end of the republic, since the most important legislative act ever
passed in American history, the Federal Reserve Act, gave control of the
currency to private bankers, who have been igniting wars ever since for
the purpose of making huge amounts of money.
- This process remains the centerpiece of the American
economy, and is the reason you can bask in your self-depleting trivalities
while the rest of the world forever mourns the millions murdered by the
American war machine.
- World War II was triggered by an almost identical process.
Americans did not want to participate in another European war, but it's
well known now that Franklin Roosevelt goaded the Japanese into attacking
Pearl Harbor, creating the necessary outrage and support for millions more
to die so the bankers could make money with that best moneymaker of all
- all out war.
- And Vietnam. Surely you've heard by now. The famous Gulf
of Tonkin incident, in which the Vietnamese supposedly opened fire on a
U.S. ship, never happened. It was a total fabrication that triggered 20
years of misery for all and killed up to four million people, but the bankers
who start these things made out like the bandits they are. They even loaned
money to the Russians who furnished weapons to the Viets just to prolong
this profitable operation as long as possible.
- Most of you still remember Saddam, the Iraqi stoolie
put in power by the Americans, and, thirty years later, declared to be
the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.
- Our leaders said Saddam had weapons of mass destruction,
so we bombed. But now we know he had no such weapons, and yet still we
- The bad perpetrators of 9/11 were hiding in Afghanistan,
they told us, so we bombed. But when we had the chance to catch them, we
didn't want to, and still we bomb.
- What kind of lies have you been telling yourself that
America is the land of the free and the home of the brave? Are you still
feeding your children this crap? America is the land of racist mass murderers.
And you wave your flag and cheer as the rest of the world bleeds.
- If 9/11 is the key to understanding American history,
your own ignorance of how America has behaved over time is the key to understanding
how America is raping and prostituting the world, and always has been.
And you cheer that. By our silence, we are all complicit in these crimes,
because we elected these fools. Every one of them. We are the real fools.
- Realizing all this is possible when you understand what
happened on 9/11, and what has happened in all of America's foreign adventures.
America sees a commodity it likes, arranges with corporate bigwigs how
to steal that commodity for its big campaign donors, invents a false story
enumerating some perilous threat to the American people, and goes off and
- America also kills thousands of your own sons and daughters
just to make it look authentic. And you cheer.
- This is the key to understanding. Your own participation
in mass murder. Look in the mirror. And see how your opulent standard of
living is the direct result of all those people who were killed, who are
being killed as we speak, in your name. You are the mass murderer. And
you cheer. And then you lie about what's really happening. It's the American
way. And it always has been.
- A toast, then. To the real American justice. The real
history. Your wonderful way of life. Raise your glass of champagne high
in a salute to our valiant heroes defending freedom and democracy around
the world. Then let the glass slip through your fingers, and crash onto
the kitchen floor. You may now choose - or not - to see the blood you're
