It was a typical Monday morning at the Guantanamo military commissions. Within the first 15 minutes, the judge had to adjourn the pre-trial hearing in the case of the five defendants accused of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, this time because one of the defendants had asked a question. And no one knew the answer.
"The September 11, 2001 attacks against the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington were the most serious terrorist attack ever on U.S. soil, leaving nearly 3,000 civilians dead. But the U.S. government's attempt to bring those terrorists to justice has unfortunately become more of a joke than a real effort to hold its perpetrators accountable."
Plus in the manner of Kafka meeting Orwell meeting Rod Serling, the perpetrators are RUNNING the legal circus, playing charades (and all) with very real lives.
Yes, talk about Kafka meeting Orwell!
Bush claims he kept us safe on 9/11 when 3,000 or more innocent people were murdered on his watch. And to add insult to misery Dim son and Cheney obstructed any real investigation into 9/11 even going so far as to not testify under oath.
If Bush kept anyone safe, it was the perpetrators of this heinous act.
I find it quite fascinating that the forum's various "revolutionaries" (and/or agents provocateurs) shy away from this topic altogether. They're quick to challenge the veracity of a great many things, and love to point out the flaws in Bill McKibben's, Bernie Sander's, Amy Goodman's, Naomi Klein's and other good souls' records. But they don't seem at all bothered by the fairytale pushed hot off the presses to explain (away) 911.
And you know what else isn't rocket science? Looking at a building like WTC7 and knowing something aint quite right that supposedly random fires brought that steel framed structure down at near free fall (although the first few seconds were absolutely measured at free fall).
There is no satisfactory official explanation for Building 7. There were few fires in the windows. Those fires were no huge raging inferno type fires.
The PNAC wanted a new Pearl Harbor. I think they created one. The nation has never been the same since. For one thing the media has been in lock step (goose step).
Does the PNAC have anything to do with the TTIP and TPP? I wouldn't be surprised in the least.
It's international Fascism on the march.
Given the pathetic "inability" to actually deliver ANY semblance of justice, and made-up categories of law, like "enemy combatant", those GITMO prisoners who have never been charged or given even the mockery of BS trials offered, should be released within days, not months! That goes double for all those innocent people kidnapped and sold for bounty to US forces and taken to GITMO to have years of their lives stolen! They ALL should receive very generous compensation!
The kind of "justice" offered is in stark opposition to everything the US is supposed to stand-for. If we allow this fasist/dictatorship mockery of justice model to stand, we as a nation and people have betrayed everything we tout as what we claim "makes America great".....the protections of habeas corpus has been "suspended" for all Americans........the founders would roll-over to witness this charade!
Fairy tales are dangerous!
