DO THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BLAME BUSH FOR 9/11?
I learned about 9/11 from the news. Before the second plane had crashed, people in the crowd told me and the rest of America it was Osama bin Laden and Arab hijackers trained in Afghanistan with the help of Saddam Hussein. A BBC reporter then told me Building 7 had just collapsed, though it was almost totally undamaged and standing 47 stories tall, right there on the TV screen behind her.
An Israel film crew, found later to be Mossad agents, partied in the streets, having filmed the attacks. They couldn’t control their joy in seeing thousands of Americans die. The equipment gathered up days in advance, cameras loaded the night before.
Hours before the attack, they began their drive, selecting the perfect spot, setting up their cameras and perhaps some other electronic equipment as well. Their rationale, “We were there to film the planes crashing into the World Trade Center.”
“God bless us all,” those news people are clever ones, prescient to a fault.
Nearly a decade later, rigged elections, phony wars, more CIA drug dealing, economic thievery beyond imagination, accusations of war crimes and more, so much more, faith has been lost in every American institution. Nothing can be trusted, least of all the American government.
The one truth stands out beyond all others. 9/11 was a combined operation between Israel’s Mossad and rogue groups in America including the leadership of the White House, Joint Chiefs of Staff and the CIA. It is called a truth because this is where the evidence leads and with it public opinion.
If evidence can’t all be destroyed and public opinion controlled then both evidence and public opinion can be “exiled.” Thus, a news blackout for 9 years has descended over the US, blocking all reporting of alternative theories on 9/11 with the same vigor used to block questions about Israel’s nuclear weapons.
It worked for the Soviet Union, will it work for America? Can a government and press alliance, only possible in a dictatorship, exile reality, sending it to a veritable Siberia, replacing it with myth?
Is the real America a dictatorship?
All rational judgement based on forensic evidence, testimony and documentation leads no other possible direction. It is science, it is law, it is reason. Any other assumption is myth, conspiracy theory but most of all, treason. There is little left in Washington anymore but treason, treason and silence.
Do Americans really believe this, is this how they think? If this is true, then why is nothing done, no general strikes, no marches on Washington? Is there also proof that Americans have lost so much confidence in themselves and each other that no change that isn’t “Fox News approved” can hope to succeed?
Do Americans feel powerless and humiliated? Is this why so many troops returning from war are killing themselves?
It is estimated that the current “off year” elections will cost 1.2 billion dollars. Half of that money will come from sources tied to narcotics smuggling from Afghanistan and Mexico and much of the rest will be from arms, oil and insurance industries. The most powerful nation in the history of earth continues to fail in two areas, the endless stream of narcotics coming into America from Mexico and the massive seasonal increases in opium/heroin production in Afghanistan despite billion dollar “eradication” efforts.
This isn’t conspiracy theory, it is fact.
With talk about Koran burnings organized by Fox News and how angry the world’s 1.2 billion Muslims will be, we see that number again, why is the myth of 9/11, the staged attack on America by Israel and their paid Washington lackeys, so important to sell? Why is the American government so afraid of the American people, why if America is really a democracy?
There is a reason.
People simply don’t believe the lies anymore. How do we know this? Did we read it in the papers or hear it on television. Think about it. “A poll today indicated that 74% of Americans no longer accept the findings of the 9/11 Commission.” Actually, you will never hear that because we can’t discuss the findings of the 9/11 Commission.
There was a report, one rescinded by most of the members, but the findings themselves were something else. Findings are facts, a “report” is what was said, not what was proven, not what was true, not even what was possible.
The Commission found that it had not been allowed to investigate properly, that evidence had been withheld and that crimes were committed by government and military leaders including, not only the destruction of evidence but perjured testimony. The findings of the 9/11 Commission were simple, they found evidence of a criminal conspiracy that prevented an honest investigation.
Those are the findings.
The findings were not published though they were announced, written of in books, articles, speeches were made but the findings are a problem. The findings “found” those that had empowered the Commission were criminals. Is it possible to define a conflict of interest more clearly than this?
How about the “court of public opinion.” Let us define “public opinion.” We know this, at one point, several years ago, 65% of Europeans believed that 9/11 was an “inside job,” meaning that the Bush administration was complicit in the planning and execution of 9/11.
That number is much higher today, estimated at 80%.
The question, however, has never been asked in the United States. Do 65% of Americans believe that 9/11 is was an inside job? Maybe. I think the falling poll numbers of George W. Bush were always based on 9/11 and the belief by some Americans he was complicit. CBS followed Bush popularity ratings and found some startling evidence of a mysterious and inexplicable mistrust many Americans developed after 9/11 and the Iraq War began to fall apart. President Jimmie Carter left office with an approval rating twice that of Bush, even while Iranians held 52 Americans hostage.
(CBS) President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush’s final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.Mr. Bush’s final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.The rating is far below the final ratings of recent two-term presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan, who both ended their terms with a 68 percent approval rating, according to CBS News polling.
Recent one term presidents also had higher ratings than Mr. Bush. His father George H.W. Bush had an end-of-term rating of 54 percent, while Jimmy Carter’s rating was 44 percent.
Harry Truman had previously had the lowest end-of-term approval at 32 percent, as measured by Gallup.Views of Mr. Bush’s popularity are highly partisan. Only 6 percent of Democrats approve of the job he has done as president, while 57 percent of Republicans approve. Eighteen percent of independents approve.Interestingly, Mr. Bush also has the distinction of having the highest approval rating for a president, as well as the lowest.In November 2008, just before the presidential election, only 20 percent approved of the job he was doing as president – the lowest of any president since Gallup began asking the question in 1938.But Mr. Bush enjoyed a high approval rating of 90 percent — the highest of any president — following the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.
There is no other explanation than 9/11. Bush popularity/disapproval ratings were tied to his personal credibility in two areas, Iraq and 9/11. There was no public outcry over the invasion of Iraq but there may well have been a public outcry over treason involving 9/11. There is no other explanation possible.
It isn’t “conclusive proof” but it is certainly beyond reasonable doubt. No wonder the media in the United States avoids asking hard questions about 9/11.
With only most recent trends bringing Israeli complicity in the planning and execution to the forefront, the ‘Dancing Israelis,” the Larry Silverstein admissions and recent revelations of Mossad sponsored terrorism, empirical evidence of a strong public outcry against Israel doesn’t exist. The same, however, can’t be made for President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their closest associates and advisers.
Only one possible thing could bring a 90% approval rating down to 22%.
By 2009, 78% of Americans believed that President Bush was responsible for 9/11, either directly or indirectly. How many simply believe Bush was “asleep at the switch?” How many believe something more? Is the most common belief that he had foreknowledge and chose to do nothing?
Is the media frenzy, even to the point of endangering our troops in the field, a admission that 9/11 treason may blow America apart? Is this why President Obama has kept so many of the illegal Bush security protocols in place? Is this why a “kill switch” has been installed on the internet and a “conspiracy czar” has been appointed by President Obama, one who has openly stated”
“attempts by conspiracy theorists to tie Israel to 9/11 are the greatest security threats to the United States”…..Cass Sunstein, Obama Regulatory Czar.
September 2001, 90% – January 2009, 22%
Were the numbers to have crashed when the economy tanked in 2007 it would be one thing. Bush was down in the 20% range in 2006. Were people to hate Bush as they did Nixon or see him as ineffective as they did with Carter, this could also be a rationale. Neither factor applies, there is little question of this. Even those who most strongly disapproved of Bush never found him indecisive.
What is clear is one thing and one thing only, trust, not just minor suspicions of lack of ability or political game-playing.
The suspicion is clear. A majority of Americans suspect President Bush may have been involved in treason.
Ask this question anywhere in the world, Europe, Canada, Latin America or the Middle East, even ask it in Japan. The truth, the only truth available to Americans, is that they are not that different than the rest of the world. America is not a nation of fools or dupes.
They are simply reported that way.
