US response to 911 was to use that event as a pretext for
launching an illegal war against Iraq, a country which had no
connection with 911, and in which an estimated million or more
innocent civilians lost their lives, and two or three times
that many lost their homes. Iraq was thrown into
disarray as its entire social structure and infrastructure was
collapsed, its oil industry stolen, and more.
weapons were used by the US in that war of aggression which
infused Iraq with depleted uranium and which will continue to
cause cancers and birth defects, and incredible pain and
suffering, for generations. It was the most vulnerable
citizens of Iraq who were dealt the severest blows.
These were horrendous war crimes committed by the United
States, crimes I would say were far worse than anything Osama
bin Laden ever did. To say that justice has been served
in the killing of bin Laden is foolishness beyond
comprehension. The criminal acts perpetrated by United
States, before and after 911, has nothing to do with justice.
Bush and Obama, as well as a whole host of other co-
conspirators, who desecrated the Constitution and disregarded
national and international law, ought to have been removed
from office for these crimes and prosecuted to the maximum
extent of the law.
is no incontrovertible evidence that bin Laden, without the
help of the United States, took down the twin towers.
And in fact, the most wildly held conspiracy theory is the one
that claims that the three buildings that collapsed on 911
were caused by a collision with airplanes. Certainly
Building 7 did not fall on its own footprint because Buildings
1 and 2 were hit by airplanes.
There is no question that the terrorist attack on
911 was a criminal act and that crime demands justice.
At the same time, it is important to note that the criminal
acts perpetrated by the United States which inspired the
attack on 911 were far worse, and there is no justice for
those victims either, just as there is no real justice for
those who died in the 911 attack… and there will be no
justice until the whole truth is revealed as to what this was
all about, what actually happened, and who was responsible in its overall context.
There can be no justice without a full disclosure of the truth
first. And everyone on this planet has a right to know
what that truth is.
