Lies by Omission

I would like to extend my most sincere regard to the lives that were lost on September 19, 2010. Their pain and anguish, they died without knowing what they gave their lives for or who had taken them. Those who fell from the towers, in public protest, taking the only option of self determination that they had left. These Americans went to work as secretaries, cooks, business people; never realizing that they would become the unsung heroes of a nation. I extend my sincere condolences to the grieving family members and friends that watched in horror as those towers fell leaving a hole in their hearts, their homes, and at the dinner table; and God Bless the crusaders that fight for truth in the name of their loss.

Tuesday, September eleventh, 2001; an absolutely beautiful day from Santa Cruz to Providence, a day that would end with, now infamous, words given by the leader of the free world, and the Commander In Chief of the United States Department of Defense; President George Walker Bush. Bush began a speech that would shock many, and stir the nation into a patriotic "call to arms" that only a nation at war could bring. Bush's speech started thusly,

"Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under

attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts." George W. Bush.

Before any time was wasted, the American people rallied behind our leader, and backed any decision made that was thought to bring about justice for the murderers of September 11th 2001. Then was born the "War on Terror" and the Patriot Act. Handing over to the United States government the power and expressed permission from the people to do what was never before asked of them in times of peace or in times of war. Something that set America apart from other countries; we gave the government our freedom from the government "listening in" on our communications, "due process" when arresting citizens suspected of being affiliated with a terrorist organization, and many other freedoms granted to the American people; and we didn't get a chance to vote on it.

There are two strong schools of thought involving the events leading up to and including the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 in New York City. There are those that see the attacks as what the 9/11 Commission Statement, the official investigation from the government, states and there are those who think that the government has covered up a grave, "false flag" operation in the form of a massacre of 2,995 people, 2,977 of those were innocent men, women, and children; 19 of the dead were the hijackers. Since the attacks, there have been people that have died due to complications related to the attacks, and 24 people are still considered "missing" (Wikipedia 2010). Despite the carnage, the Bush administration has tried to suppress investigations and limit the 9/11 commission from investigating White House involvement. Both Bush and Cheney had asked Tom Daschle to "limit the congressional investigation into the events of September 11" (Bash, 2002).

The evidence that these attacks were planned by the United States government is overwhelming; this report will cover the key issues that are in question here, however there is much more information abroad. One of the biggest pieces of information damning the Bush administration is that Bush had major interest in seizing land in Afghanistan and no public backing for a war with Afghanistan. Bush, whose family name is synonymous with the word 'oil' had been attempting to gain land from Afghanistan since before the first attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) in 1993. On October 9, 2001 (28 days after 9/11) talk of the oil pipeline through Afghanistan was revived in light of said, "new geopolitical developments" (Rasizade, 2001). As of yet, the government has not put forth any explanation as to whether or not this pipeline had any part in the 9/11 attacks.

Next on the "radar" of questionable events surrounding the 9/11 attack is that there were many top public officials that were informed on September 10th 2001, that they should not take a flight or come into the downtown New York area (with special mention of lower Manhattan) the following day (9/11). The informant was later to be identified as United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. As San Francisco mayor Willie Brown recounts, he was "set to fly into New York on the morning of September 11. However, he got a call from what he described as his 'airport security' late September 10th advising against flying due to a security threat" (Jones, 2002-2005).

In addition to San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, there were several "Top Pentagon officials" warned that had "cancelled flights on September 10th" that were set for September the 11th (Jones, 2002-2005). Each of the people that were informed simply commented that their "airport security" had informed them of the threat late September 10th, and had warned them against taking any flights or coming near lower Manhattan the following day. There has not been any official statement from the government about the possibility of advanced knowledge that could have saved potentially all of the victims that died that day.

At this point, one may begin to ask a question that has been asked for thousands of years, dating back to Roman times, that question would be "Cui Bono?" Translated to English, Cui Bono means for the benefit of whom? To answer this, investigators look for the "money trail," in other words, who profited from such an event? At this juncture we find a commercial real estate tycoon by the name of Larry Silverstein. Larry Silverstein was the new 99 year leaseholder taking the WTC complex from the public control of the New York Port Authorities to his private control (Nufffrespect, 2007). The complex consisted of; One World Trade Center also known as the "North Tower." Two World Trade Center or the "South Tower," Three, Four, Five and Six World Trade Center formed a co-op of smaller office buildings on the "super-block" that was dedicated for the World Trade Center. Across Vesey Street, to the North of the WTC super-block stood Seven, World Trade Center. This building was a 47 story office building with several occupants along with mayor Rudi Giuliani's emergency bunker (which the mayor had not been in during any of the events of that day) on the 23rd floor, the IRS Regional Council on floors 24 and 25, the United States Secret Service on floors 9 and 10, the offices of the C.I.A. on the 25th floor, the Securities & Exchange
