“Not so long ago, that 9/11 “changed everything” seemed like the hyperbolic cliché of a past era. From the present moment, however, it looks ever more like a sober description of what actually happened. Congratulations, that is, are due to Osama bin Laden. Even dead and buried at sea, he deserves some credit.”
Ridiculous double-assertion. For any thoughtful journalist who’s not embedded in mainstream media to take these two Official Stories seriously is part of the reason why and how the Posse Comitatus law came to be undone so that this nation’s MIC-coup govt. would set up military-style domestic armed forces, and as Chris Hedges and Glenn Greenwald noted from the moment the NDAA passed, pivot those forces in the direction of Environmental activists or any groups that posed a threat to the increasingly martial boot bearing down on U.S.
A parallel is found in today’s story about Canada using similar verbiage of the type that conflates opponents of Big Oil and the rape of ecosystems with terrorism. Of course, we’re living in an era where it’s those who point at war crimes (Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning), protest drone strikes (Kathy Kelly), and expose the spy state(s) passing themselves off as Democratic states (Edward Snowden) that end up incarcerated while those who DO the crimes enjoy embarrassments of riches.
Time to question the Official Narratives, Mr. Engelhardt. Mars doesn’t come to rule in a vacuum. It advances when Truth is gunned down first. Official Stories cloud THAT Truth.
