Are People Who Question 9/11 Afraid of Al Qaeda?

Defenders of the official story about 9/11 argue that people who question that account are too scared of the threat from terrorism, and so create false conspiracies which are less scary . . . in order to reduce their anxieties.

For example, Time Magazine says questions about 9/11 won't go away because "the idea that there is a malevolent controlling force orchestrating global events is, in a perverse way, comforting." Similarly, the BBC, in trying to sweep questions about 9/11 under the rug, says "we take comfort in complicated stories about wider conspiracies, usually involving remote, distant figures." And John McCain, in his forward to Popular Mechanic's book Debunking 9/11 Myths, says "We want to believe that 19 men could not murder our citizens, destroy our grandest buildings, and terrorize our country. Surely, something more was at work."

Are they right?

No. Its scarier to believe that the government who we've always believed would protect us was complicit in the mass murder of American citizens than to believe a bunch of foreigners did it.

How Scary is Al Qaeda?

Moreover, the BBC documentary entitled "The Power of Nightmares" shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown (and see this article on who is behind the hype).

And a former National Security Adviser told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative".

Indeed, many of the so called "Al-Qaeda" terrorists turn out to be operatives from Western governments.

How Scary would a Government Conspiracy Be?

On the other hand, how scary would it be if powerful elements within the U.S. government carried out (or at least aided and abetted) 9/11?

Well, the U.S. :
  • Is the most powerful country in history
  • Has access to every weapon of mass destruction in existence
  • Has many billions of dollars at its disposable
  • Frequently runs war games and terror drills, which are often the cover for false flag operations
  • Has a lapdog press that will rally to defend and cover up the crimes of the U.S. government while it instead blames every problem -- even the California wildfires -- on Al Qaeda
  • Has a militarized police force, the ability to spy on all Americans, torture facilities all over the globe, and a legal framework which can brand anyone who disagrees with the government as a "terrorist"
What's scarier, the threat from a bunch of ragtag idiot wannabes from across the pond who fancy themselves as terrorists . . . or having people who murdered 3,000 innocent Americans with their fingers on the levers and resources of the world's largest police state and sole superpower?

I wish that it really had been Al Qaeda that carried out 9/11 by itself (we could easily stop such people if the government actually tried). A conspiracy involving the government is a lot scarier.

Indeed, psychologists and psychiatrists say that people who do not question the government's version of 9/11 are in denial -- that is, that they are too afraid to look at the facts.

Psychologists actually say that those who engage in propaganda do so for a purpose other than for the truth, knowing full well that they will have an audience to believe whatever idiocy they want to promote.

You don't fool anyone, GW.

10-4, agreed. When people call me crazy, I respond, "I wish I was." Being mistaken about the situation we are in would be much preferable to being correct. Unfortunately, the evidence is overwhelming and only those who refuse to face it are delusional, in denial, or mistaken.

Love your work George Washington!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone, please read Naomi Wolf's "The End of America: letter of warning to a young patriot, a citizen's call to action. Thanks. She does not directly confront the truth of 9/11 but instead uses a top ten list of ways in which democracies and open societies have been dismantled and closed down historically and provides examples of the exact same techniques being used in America today. This is well beyond serious.

"That is certainly true in regards to your blogs BJ."

Making fun of 9/11 Truth Movement idiots and charlatans who reject reason and evidence on principle is all there is left to do.

That you can't see through GW is a problem only you can solve.

b. j. edwards,

You may wish to ask these military leaders, world-class scientists, 9/11 commissioners, congress people, structural engineers, architects, and others -- including psychologists and psychiatrists -- about government complicity.

Thank you in advance for actually looking at what they are saying.
