It’s Time To Move On From 9/11

When the expired body of Osama Bin Laden was thoughtfully placed in the sea by his executioners, most Americans were prepared to call it a day on the sadness of 9/11. Yes, thousands died on that tragic November day in New York, and their memories will linger as long as the sun still shines and warms this strange planet. However, we need to recognise also that many hundreds of thousands of innocent lives perished in the aftermath as the United States avenged its victims across the Middle East. The repercussions of Al-Qaeda’s acts are still being felt today, and we need always to remember that no enemy is so strong as to destroy the very freedoms we live by.

Alas, despite the passing of the years, there is a certain type of person who still refuses to accept established facts. Despite a special 9/11 commission being set-up with an unprecedentedly wide scope of work, and despite the same commission exonerating the US Government in all respects, some conspiracy theorists refuse to let go. Hunkering in their parents’ basements, these 40/50 year-old losers spend their whole sad lives trying to find ‘inconsistencies’ in the official story. They waste the short amount of time they have on earth trolling around internet forums, arguing with anyone who will listen about their weird ideas. They talk about a ‘third tower’ falling under its own weight, of the BBC somehow announcing the collapse of same building ahead of time, about a ‘Larry Silverstein’ character who insured this building ahead of its collapse, about a war-games exercise taking place the same day which diverted the nations’ aircraft, about the impossibility of buildings collapsing at free-fall due to a fire, given that this had never happened before.

As open-minded progressive people, we turned to the 9/11 commission report to see what its authors had to say about such allegations. Needless to say, they were silent on such issues meaning that these allegations are simply not worth the pixels they were written with. The truth is not always easy to determine, but we are helped by a concept called ‘Occam’s Razor’. Under this philosophical principle, we first suppose there are two explanations for an occurrence. The simpler one is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is.

Applying Occam’s razor to 9/11, what we know is that the passports of the terrorists were found DIRECTLY under where they crashed the planes into the buildings.

We also know that Osama Bin Laden admitted responsibility for the actions of 9/11. We also know that, if there was a conspiracy somehow involving the US Government, the Intelligence Agencies etc. many thousands of people presumably were aware. In this case, it would be almost impossible to keep a conspiracy a secret.

Believing that our government was somehow lying to us would be the ultimate betrayal. This is not the 1930s/1940s when Goebels and his ilk were using propaganda to turn ‘good Germans’ into willing accomplices. This is Current Year.

The simple answer is therefore this: Osama and his brethren did it. It is time for us all to move on and forget about this tragic event in our history. We must trust in our government and intelligence agencies.

Best way to get over 9/11 is to charge reparations for all Muslim visas and applications for citizenship. Also tax the income of Muslims an additional 25% to pay for their destruction of America.

How about Iran charging reparations for US overthrowing their democratically elected government in 1950’s?

Not just that. All the Bush wars and the destruction of infrastructures and the “accidental” murder of civilians. After a brief respite of 8 years with humanitarian interventions and a decent attempt to help real freedom fighters with weapon supplies I’m afraid that we are back with the barbaric republican policies today.

How about whites pay Muslims reparations for the crusades!

Any historian will tell you that that the Easter Roman Empire, after it split off from Rome ran the Middle East. It lasted till the 1,400’s when the Muslims conquered its capital Constantinople

Islam is a religion of peace. This is recognised as fact by all accredited persons.

As Islam is a religion of peace, it’s clearly impossible for it to have spread by force of arms; obviously, people throughout the region converted to Mohammad’s teachings (Peace Be Upon Him!) because they were superior.

We can see this even today. Our sagacious central bankers no longer charge interest on money, a concept they learnt from Sharia; or are you suggesting Haruhiko Kuroda & Janet Yellen were already Muslims?

It is a well known fact that Central Bankers lust after money.

Otherwise why would they kill to gain the right to print it, or kill anyone that infringes on their monopoly.

As a former white male that now identifies as a black bigender I too demand 40 acres and a mule!

Unfortunately you’re not allowed to culturally appropriate an oppressed person of color, unless you have high cheek bones and therefore identify as a Native American, like Elizabeth Warren.

richandrenee

Yes it would pay to remember the Rachel Dolezal incident.

Of course we’d all like to pass ourselves off as people of color – but the world just isn’t that simple.

Bigender is who you are Deshauniqua – embrace it.

After that video posted by anon I don’t want to see a mule anytime soon, but 40 acres of land sounds pretty good to me.

Are high cheek bones the only qualifier? Michael Jackson had high cheek bones later in life and became white but both parents were black.
At what percentage point are you able to appropriate?
Obama is half white and yet ran as a black man.
Colin Kaepernick has a white parent and he is an angry black man.
Trevor Noah is 1/2 white and is an angry black man.
Tiger Woods is bi-racial but known as a black golfer.
Kalani and Jarani Dean are bi-racial twins one dark skinned and one light.
If it is just skin color? Can I identify after some time in the sun?

Can my 40 acres be with a beach front please. That way I can maintain my new declared ethnicity.

Just remember that mules are an infertile cross between a horse and a donkey.

Which brings up the possibility of flying mules once we genetically recreate Mohammad’s flying donkey.

I will keep my fingers crossed hoping for that modern day miracle.

blacks have taken the “paper bag rule” and “one drop rule” and appropriated it. They are entitled to, as well as to claim it is racist when whites used it.

Excellent article Pbier. The official accredited 9/11 commission report thoroughly debunks all of these conspiracy theories. Of course, as you say, most of the theories are so insane that the report doesn’t bother addressing them, but it does provide perfectly adequate explanations for what happened that day. As for “building 7” (by using quotes, I’m indicating that allegations involving building 7 are not to be taken seriously), it’s hard to find an official accredited position on this, so until I hear one, I’m going to dismiss any claims involving this building as lies and conspiracy theories. Until CNN reports it, it’s false – pure and simple.

Unanswered questions about 9/11

Who knew to send the “dancing Jews” (aka Mossad agents) to film the 9/11 plane crashes

Who know to make big bets on Wall Street that airline stocks would fall

How did big time politicians (who warned their friends not to fly that day) know it was a bad day to take a plane ride.

Who knew to telephone in bomb threats to Jewish companies at the World Trade center so that they could evacuate

Why exactly did moving trucks at the Mossad front company that the “dancing Jews” work at have traces of explosives all over them.

How come the initial hold in the Pentagon was only about 15 feet by 15 feet after a big fat ass airliner hit it.

How come we attacked Iraq when the hijackers were Saudi?

and how were news channels talking about the buildings falling before they even fell?

Perhaps the Prophet Mohammad was channeling Jews and news reporters that day, while ignoring Muslims.

After all when a good Muslim goes to heaven he gets 40 virgins and therefore a Muslims death is just a step to a better place.

Still leaves open the question of whether a good Muslim women gets 40 horny studs when they go to heaven or 40 horny donkeys.

I suppose with luck they cold get 40 horny flying donkeys, or 40 horny space goats.

Building 7 was quaking in fear, after its bigger neighbors were attacked. BBC realized that, and reported the collapse of the building a full 20 minutes before it actually happened.

BBC, an accredited media, sets journalistic standards, for others to follow. It runs rehearsals of what might happen in the future, and reports on it. Like reporting the queen’s death – http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-33432647.

More fake news. Muslims, who are people of the land, rely on their animals and treat them well.

It’s hard to be certain (given his disguise) but I’m pretty sure that’s Donald Trump, or some other Republican exercising White Male Privilege.

Black Lives Matter

9/11 was a LAW ENFORCEMENT MATTER. We need to leave law enforcement to the appropriate authorities. Granted, the Bush administration was completely incompetent, but Obama’s people looked at the evidentiary record thoroughly. We are now safe from terrorism. The only risk is the potential backlash if the courts fail to overturn Trump’s Islamophobic Muslim ban.

Islam is the religion of peace; I think that conclusively proves the attacker was a Republican, or a Ron Paul zealot. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to read that law enforcement officials later discovered gold ingots at the scene.

Fantastic article Pbier – personally we’ve moved on long ago. It is however interesting finding out about just how the buildings came down. There is a super article in the March 2005 issue of Popular Mechanics – that cover story was expanded and published in August 2006 as a book titled Debunking 9/11 Myths.

Popular Mechanics is fully accredited so there’s no weirdo alt-right lies – just the scientific facts.

So I am trying to figure out if this entire website is anti-American, or just the author of this article. Why would to refer to the hero that killed Osama as a “Executioner”. These are the little subtle negative things that anti-Americans do in support of the enemy. Why are you here in America, just to try and destroy America?
