Loosening the Grip of Concealment

Facts are - by their very nature - buoyant. As every purveyor of untruths ultimately comes to discover, it takes a great amount of energy to counteract the laws of Physics which are perpetually at work. Like pieces of cork, the stubborn persistence of concealed facts eventually breaks free of the hands that seek to hold them captive, as the reality of fatigue or distraction takes hold - bursting through to the surface. As recently as the last century, the official storyline surrounding two events that reverberated around the world - Pearl Harbor and the JFK assassination were widely accepted by the vast majority, with those culpable managing to avoid discovery over the remainder of their lives. Today there are very few who still cling to the official version of those events.

It is my belief that the masterminds of the 'Pearl Harbor' of this generation will indeed be brought to justice during their (and our) lifetimes. This will in large part be due to the still relatively free flow of information enjoyed by the great majority of humanity over the worldwide-web. Both of the major political entities that now govern have a vested interest in continuing the charade (each held power during the WTC attacks on either side of Y2K, for both of which compelling indications of inside involvement has since been revealed). Furthermore the consequences of the widespread loss of confidence in those that hold the reins of power will be seen as too great a price to pay for revealing the truth! Mainstream media outlets have become so deeply lodged in the pockets of major business conglomerates that any attempt at challenging the foundations of the status quo will be quickly stymied. In the end though, thanks to the persistence of a few, the grip that conceals will loosen.

Preface: U.S. President James Madison said:
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
Everyone knows that "truth is the first casualty of war". And one of the most highly decorated American soldiers of all time said that "war is a racket". 

FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, constitutional law expert professor Jonathan Turley, Time Magazine, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post have all said that U.S. government officials "were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power". Indeed, the former Secretary of Homeland Security - Tom Ridge - admits that he was pressured to raise terror alerts to help Bush win reelection.
A former National Security Adviser told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative". In terms of a possible "why", remember that psychologists and sociologists have demonstrated that fear of terrorism makes people stupid and easy to manipulate and control.



Pentagon Papers Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg Says that the Government Has ORDERED the Media Not to Cover 9/11

It's big news that the Pentagon Papers have finally been released by the government.
But the statements from Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg about 9/11 have not been covered by the corporate media.
As Fire Dog Lake's Jeff Kaye writes today:

The entire 9/11 field of inquiry has been vilified, poisoned over the years by ridicule, sometimes fantastic conspiracy mongering, and fearfulness by journalists of approaching the material, lest they be branded as irresponsible or some kind of conspiracy freak. As a result, little work has been done to investigate, except by a small group of people, some of whom have raised some real questions ...
Similarly, Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski - who blew the whistle on the Bush administration's efforts to concoct false intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction - wrote (page 26):

I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11 story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American.
Several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing "a form of self-censorship":
There was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tires around peoples' necks if they dissented. And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions.... And again, I am humbled to say, I do not except myself from this criticism.
What we are talking about here - whether one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or not - is a form of self-censorship
The Head of CNN agreed:
