Analysis

What Really Happened on September 11th?

September 11th, 2001 is widely considered one of the most important days in American history. Although it is arguable how much really has changed since that day, references to it as the "event that changed everything" are ubiquitous, particularly among apologists for the theft of civil liberties, vanishing government accountability, and international aggression. 1   2   3   4  

Given the importance of September 11th, the many unexplained events of that day have received an incredibly scant amount of serious scrutiny. Investigations have been unfunded and severely limited. Mainstream media simply glossed over the slow-motion response by the nation's air defense system, the inexplicable crumbling of three skyscrapers, and absurdities in the Pentagon strike story. Media did cover intelligence failure stories, thereby avoiding the central issues.

The normal procedure to discover the truth about any crime involves asking these two questions.

  • Who benefited from the crime?
  • Who had the capacity to carry out the crime?

Every legitimate investigation of a crime asks these questions. Answers are used to obtain a list of suspects. These questions were not publicly asked following the attack. Instead, Osama bin Laden was identified within hours as the mastermind, and media and official sources steadfastly ridiculed suggestions that responsibility reached beyond bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and -- in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq -- Sadam Hussein.
