As the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, the 9/11 Truth movement is preparing to host protests and conferences around the United States.
Fifteen years of lies. Fifteen years of "War on Terror." Fifteen years of warrantless domestic surveillance. Fifteen years of increasing militarization of the police. Fifteen years of manufactured terrorists and false flag terror attacks.
Each of these dilemmas can be traced back to the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City. From the moment the news pundits decided that Osama Bin Laden was responsible for bringing down the World Trade Center towers, attacking the Pentagon, and other attempted attacks – the American people have been fed a lie. For the last 15 years thousands of documentaries (a few of higher quality than others), researchers, firefighters, architects, engineers, pilots, psychologists, and 9/11 victims' family members have analyzed, questioned and challenged the official version of events.
The growth of the movement seeking truth about 9/11/01 has manifested in a wide range of alternative theories about what may have actually taken place that day. Some of these theories examine the physical aspects of the collapse of the Twin Towers and the lesser-known World Trade Center 7, which also collapsed despite not being hit by a plane or consumed by a burning inferno as originally reported. These theories encompass a wide set of beliefs, including the idea that nuclear weapons, military explosives, or some type of "directed energy" or exotic weapons were used to drop the towers at nearly free fall speed.
There are theories about elements of the U.S. government either allowing or participating in the planning of the attacks. There are theories about people in positions of power or influence being warned not to go to work on 9/11, theories about whether or not the planes were even real, and theories on the possibility that the event was a psychological and spiritual attack on the human psyche itself.
For all the theorizing, the area where the official story is showing the strongest signs of cracking is in the discussion of who financed and supported the attacks. Indeed, on Friday July 15, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) published the newly declassified 28 pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001. The 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released in 2002.
