A Day That Changed the World

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/09/10/day-changed-world

The military industrial media infotainment complex’s (MIMIC) mission to never let a crisis go to waste took advantage of 9/11/01 to create dozens of new profit centers that continue to be geese laying golden eggs for MIMIC.

The best Congress money can buy obliged MIMIC’s every command.

I fail to see how the lesson of violence begetting violence was taught here. We always knew that. We as a species have known that for centuries. As such the only conclusion to be made is that the violence that grew out of the US Military response to 9/11 was anticipated , planned for and welcomed.

It very profitable and as Smedley Butler pointed out 80 years ago, this the main reason for these wars.



Don’t act surprised when you punch another country in the mouth, steal their resources/labor and they come back and kick you in the balls (9/11). They’ve got names for things like that. Pay back, revenge, blow back or retribution. Check your calendar man, 9/11 happened eighteen years ago, and we are still in Afghanistan and Iraq. America needs to get over itself! Quick!

I would argue (not alone here) the world did not change on 9/11 aka American"Patriot Day" :slight_smile:

There has been much greater loss of human life including all the firefighters, for example the tsunami that occurred not long after. Of cours,e attacking Afghanistan and Iraq had global consequences, but this was a decision which was largely engineered by the Bush administration, irrespective of other more measured advice … a choice to invade…but I imagine here on Common Dreams/ Common Delusions I am “preaching to the choir”…

Happy Patriot Day America!!.. now is that an oxymoron or what??

Two important recent stories ignored by most media: New York Area Fire Commissioners Make History, Call for New 9/11 Investigation

Evidence of Foreknowledge of the 9/11/01 AttacksThe following is from:Poetry as Treason?Posted By Kurt Nimmo On October 3, 2002 https://www.counterpunch.org/2002/10/03/poetry-as-treason/

As for Baraka’s assertion that both the US and Israeli government had prior knowledge of the September 11 attacks, there is clear, ample, and documented evidence they most certainly did.

Consider the following:

Newsbytes reported on September 27, 2001, that employees of Odigo, an instant messaging company in Herzliyya, Israel, received messages warning of the attacks two hours before they occurred. Alex Diamandis, vice president of sales and marketing for Odigo, confirmed that workers in Israeli received the messages. The story was subsequently carried by CNN and Ha’aretz in Israel.

On August 11, 2001, US Navy Lt. Delmart “Mike” Vreeland, held in Toronto on U.S. fraud charges and claiming to be an officer in U.S. Naval intelligence, gave to Canadian authorities a sealed envelope. On September 14, 2001, Canadian jailers open Vreeland’s sealed envelope to find a letter detailing attacks against the WTC and Pentagon. Source: The Toronto Star, Oct. 23, 2001, and Toronto Superior Court Records.

On September 6-7, 2001, 4,744 put options (a speculation that stock prices will go down) are purchased on United Air Lines stock. There are only 396 call options (speculation that the stock will go up) at the same time. Many of the United Air Lines puts are purchased through Deutschebank/AB Brown, a firm managed until 1998 by the current Executive Director of the CIA, A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard. This is reported in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

In June, 2001, German intelligence, the BND, warns the CIA and Israel that Middle Eastern terrorists are “planning to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture.” The story was reported by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, September 14, 2001.

During the summer of 2001, Jordanian intelligence intercepts a communication indicating attacks are planned on the WTC. The message is relayed to Washington. Reported by John K. Cooley of ABC and published in The International Herald Tribune on May 21, 2002.

Summer 2001. Russian intelligence notifies the CIA that 25 terrorist pilots have been specifically training for missions involving hijacked airliners. Reported by Izvestia.

On July 26, 2001, CBS News reports that John Ashcroft has stopped flying commercial airlines due a threat assessment.

In August, 2001, Russian President Vladimir Putin orders Russian intelligence to warn the U.S. government “in the strongest possible terms” of imminent attacks on airports and government buildings. Source: MSNBC interview with Putin, September 15.

Also in August, 2001, Dubya receives classified intelligence briefings at his Crawford, Texas, ranch indicating that Osama bin Laden might be planning to hijack commercial airliners. Reported by CBS News and CNN, May 15, 2001.

August through September, 2001. French intelligence services warn the FBI of imminent attacks. These are ignored. Reported by AP, May 21, 2002

.In the week prior to September 11, a caller to a Cayman Islands radio talk show gave several warnings of an imminent attack on the U.S. by bin Laden. Reported by MSNBC on September 16.

On May 31, 2002, FBI Agent Robert Wright holds a press conference at the National Press Club describing his lawsuit against the FBI for deliberately curtailing investigations that might have prevented the 9/11 attacks. He uses words like “prevented,” “thwarted,” “obstructed,” “threatened,” “intimidated,” and “retaliation” to describe the actions of his superiors in blocking his attempts to shut off money flows to Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

US media control most information, so most people are woefully misinformed and uninformed, especially about 9/11.


Was just going to put those two up myself.

Blockbuster news, completely buried. It may simply be hopeless at this point.

I know, but we must keep getting the information out. Truth AND Justice demand that we do our part to overcome the lies and cover-up.

You might say that as far as the MIC was concerned 9/11 was just more Business as usual , just as it was for all of those other wars fought that were premised on lies (Gulf of Tonkin).

And hopefully contractors are building better buildings. Nope, unlikely.

Bush saw the first plane hit the first tower BEFORE he went into the classroom…

“But I was whisked off and didn’t have much time to think about it…”

He was “whisked off” after seeing the first plane hit the first tower. Reading to those kids was far more important to the POTUS than a plane hitting the WTC. Riiiiight…


As we experience another anniversary of 9/11 it is of great importance that we examine the most recent evidence as well as carefully acquired documentation and research over the past 18 years on what may be the most deadly and greatest False Flag event of our time.
Please look at these links on the other side and decide for yourself where the real truth is behind the 9/11 Story.
“In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act”

Evidence of a Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) used to destroy the buildings at the World Trade Center on 9/11 by Dr. Judy Wood “Where Did The Towers Go?”:

Thermite and Explosives used on World Trade Center Buildings on 9/11 by Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth:

No Planes Involved on 9/11 by Ace Baker “911PsyOpera”:

Why don’t you talk about what really happened?

If Nassau County NY Fire Department has the courage to pass a resolution demanding a new investigation into 9/11, why is it that “leading journalists” haven’t got the brains to figure out the truth or the balls to write about it?


I’m almost shocked to see this mainstream piece appearing in Common Dreams. Don’t they know CD readers aren’t stupid? The biggest lesson 9/11 has taught Americans who are actually paying attention is that their government has learned that they can do nearly anything they want to, and the public will roll over and take it. Unlike what I have seen living abroad, far too many Americans failed to ask the tough but painfully obvious questions after 9/11 of their government, and instead turned away from what was just too frightening to face: that their faith in their government was not at all deserved. And now, as we see Trump and Friends stealing in broad daylight, robbing from the poor to pay the rich, rolling back environmental protections, completely ignoring the climate crisis, flouting laws right and left, all in the name of wealth and power, we can say again to the masses of gullible patriots “Yes, they actually WOULD do such a thing!”

The more likely scenario is that he knew full well that he had to be somewhere else, even if he only partly knew why. After all, false flags and country toppling was something like the family business he had grown up with.

Let’s never forget…WTC7.


It also worth pointing out that this is not new information due to new revelations. All of this stuff was known in 2001. I was on another forum but was questioning the official version of events from the get go as none of it made sense and none of it believable. Engineers and experts on controlled demolitions were silenced from the get go.

In other words there was a concerted effort on the part of the Media to ensure that the Government sanctioned version of events was the only acceptable version of events. They might have reported these anomalies but at the end of the day they helped to manufacture the “Consenus” that this was 19 Muslim terrorists flying planes into buildings.

That in and of itself points to a conspiracy.
