9/11: The Greatest Lie Ever Told


Everett, Matt, The Journal of Psychohistory


"In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility. ... [T]he broad masses of a nation ... more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie. ... [T]he grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes."

-Adolf Hitler

September 11, 2001 was the most significant and influential day this century. The attacks in New York and Washington that morning were the deadliest and most shocking that America has ever experienced, and the political repercussions have been enormous. The attacks served as pretexts for wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which have resulted in over a million deaths. They led to the declaration of a "war on terror," which has meant the loss of civil liberties in America and allied nations, increased domestic surveillance, and the kidnapping, imprisonment, and torture of suspected terrorists.

And yet there has never been a proper investigation to establish who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Government officials declared that Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaeda terrorist network were the culprits while the attacks were still taking place. Since then, all official investigations have been based on the assumption that this initial allocation of guilt was unquestionably correct.

But in the nine years since the attacks, a growing number of people around the world have come to seriously question that assumption. Close examination of the evidence has revealed so many discrepancies in the official story, and so much that contradicts it, that many people are doubting what we have been led to believe about 9/11.

EVIDENCE AGAINST THE OFFICIAL 9/11 STORY

The eight sets of evidence described below all indicate that much of the official accounts of what happened on 9/11 and who was responsible for the attacks is false. Instead, this evidence suggests the attacks were a "false flag operation," which is a kind of covert operation designed to appear as though it was carried out by some group other than its actual perpetrators. In this case, Arab Muslims have been blamed, when the real culprits were most likely rogue individuals working in the U.S. government and military.

The implications of this are devastating. We could be facing the biggest political scandal of all time, as the perpetrators of perhaps the worst act of treason in all history are identified, investigated, and brought to justice. The scandal could dominate the news for years and bring about a process of societal change, as we gradually deal with the corruption and criminality that has seriously impaired how our nations function and are governed.

EIGHT AREAS OF EVIDENCE

Independent researchers have amassed a huge volume of evidence contradicting the official 9/11 story.1 1 describe below eight specific areas of this evidence I have selected, which cast doubt on key aspects of the official account of 9/11, although a Presidential conspiracy is not backed up. I examine whether Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda were really behind the attacks; I describe evidence that the World Trade Center towers were brought down deliberately with explosives; I examine what could have prevented the U.S. military from intercepting the four targeted airliners; and I show how the alleged crash sites at the Pentagon and in rural Pennsylvania were inconsistent with the plane impacts said to have occurred there.

Some of this evidence - such as that which indicates the WTC was demolished with explosives - is already quite conclusive. Other evidence will require further investigation, but is already highly suspicious and, cumulatively, points to the conclusion that 9/11 must have been a false flag operation.

1) Was Osama bin Laden responsible for 9/11?

Just after hearing a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, CIA Director George Tenet announced to his breakfast companion, "This has bin Laden all over it. …
