It has become increasingly clear to me and many people I work with that our government lies constantly and cannot be trusted. Heads nod when one says this, yet when questions are raised about what actually happened on September 11, 2001, there are some people who don’t even want the questions to be asked.
The way I know that there are many holes in the official story is that my 14-year-old daughter did her term paper this year on what actually happened on 9-11-01. She found dozens of facts and pieces of evidence that contradict the official story touted by Washington and the corporate media. My own subsequent research has convinced me that the official story is a big lie. That does not mean that I know exactly who planned the attacks, how they did it, and why they did it. I do know, however, that the government lies on many smaller, less significant issues, so why wouldn’t they lie about this huge issue?
The only way a thorough investigation will happen is if we, the people, demand it. Whether you trust the official story about 9-11 or not, we must all support the principle of basing our laws and policies on “truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”
If you believe that real democracy requires open and accountable government, I urge you to assist the 9/11 family members and support groups such as www.911truth.org and www.911visibility.org in their just struggle for the truth.
Getting at the truth regarding 9/11/01 will not bring back the thousands of people who died, but it will at least ensure that they did not die in vain.”
