Inside the 9/11 Report

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor





I've been reading through the 9/11 Commission Report, and it really doesn't do much to address some of the hard questions. It seems almost unconscionable to suggest the Bush administration could have been complicit in the events of 9/11, and yet, a great many Americans believe it to be true. Then again, one need not be a physicist to realize the official version of the story simply doesn't stack up.

Much like a house of cards, both towers tumbled to the ground in a matter of minutes, defying the laws of physics. The impact of the aircraft, and the subsequent explosion of jet fuel has been blamed for compromising the integrity of the structures, but leaves us with more question than answers. If indeed, the towers fell due to structural failure, why then would building seven also fail, as it was not struck by aircraft, nor was it built in the same manner as the towers. How does a building three blocks long collapse from a localized debris fire? Obviously, it doesn't.

Perhaps you are not familiar with the World Trade Center complex prior to 9/11. As such, it would be easy to overlook the obvious contradictions concerning the event. Throughout history, no other buildings have failed in a similar manner, and yet, we are expected to believe that this fluke of physics occurred not once, but three times, in a single location.

Could the Bush administration have somehow been involved in orchestrating these events? Frankly, the jury is out. We know for a fact, however, that the administration of Dwight Eisenhower drew up plans for similar attacks on US soil to bolster support for invasions of the USSR and Cuba. The covert operation, known as Operation Northwoods' was wholly rejected by subsequent administrations, but a precedent had been set. The US government had proven beyond doubt, a capability to kill innocent Americans.

911 Report

Could 9/11 be another Operation Northwoods'? Unfortunately, it appears entirely possible. Just as the North tower was beginning to list to one side, a series of explosions occurred at street level, causing the building to buckle from beneath, bringing it straight down. These explosions could not have been the result of exploding fuel, as heat rises. Furthermore, we watched in terror as the jet fuel erupted into flames. What then, could have caused the explosions at street level?

We may never know the truth about 9/11, but we certainly know the official explanation is flawed and unacceptable. Could George W. Bush and his administration have knowingly murdered thousands of Americans? One can only wonder.

Conservatives Gone Wild

B. Thomas Cooper - Editor





It has been the season of conservatives behaving badly
. Indeed, a long season at that. Every week, another outlandish story is breaking.

It all began with a cock-sure Washington lobbyist named Jack Abramson. Or was it Enron? At any rate, something set off a chain reaction within the republican community. Without any real warning, skeletons began emerging from closet after closet, until Sodom and Gomorrah began to resemble monks.

Scandals come and go. This current cycle of scandal, however, apparently attempted to outrun a freight train, and has been dragged beyond comprehension. Although devastated by repeated disasters, the carnage continues. Political suicide seems all the rage, with crazed republicans, like rats, leaping from a burning barge.

So should Larry Craig, latest poster child for Conservatives Gone Wild' resign? I would like to believe gays in Idaho deserve representation too! Unfortunately, I don't they can expect fair representation from Larry Craig.
Obviously, Craig has been less than forthcoming with America. I don't care about his particular sexual activities, but he has lost the confidence of his constituents. His words don't match his deeds.

Do you recall those silly playing cards the Bush administration passed around, featuring the faces of various bad guys? Well, the Bush administration has accumulated enough cards of their own to start a whole new deck... all jokers.
