Is the "9/11 Truth Movement" a Front for the CIA?
Guest: Researcher Ty Brown, who hosts the Dream’s End Blog, has been studying this interesting possibility….
Ever since September 11, a few people — generally thought to be nut-cases — have been conflating real, extremely important questions about what happened on 9/11 with ridiculous bullshit like suggesting that explosives brought down the World Trade Center or that a plane never hit the Pentagon or that cell phone calls were never made from the Shanksville, PA flight. These outlandish theories then crowd out legitimate and serious question of Government failures at the very top, such as the Bush-Bin Laden relationship (including the President’s allowing Bin Laden family members to immediately leave the country), the failures of NORAD, the President’s and Vice President’s personal cowardice on September 11, 2001, their incompetent (at best) failures to heed the massive warnings that an attack like this would occur (coined as the “summer of threat” by terrorist czar Richard Clark), and their use of the terrorist attacks for their own partisan purposes.
For two years now, I have faithfully pursued these wild conspiracy theories at the request of listeners, just as I pursue any political story requested by listeners. And after having done a half dozen shows and interviewing the leaders of the movement, I have become more convinced than ever that these theories are not just bullshit, but actually are harmful bullshit. Harmful in that the cockamamie theories are crowding out legitimate, serious questions of our Government’s serious failures to prevent the attack, massive incompetence during the attacks, and the cover up afterward. (Remember Cheney’s lie that the terrorists were trying to hit Air Force One? Or that he ordered NORAD to shoot down the planes? Why weren’t these lies more fully discussed in the media?)
As I study the 9/11 Truth Movement further, I am coming to a darker conclusion. I am coming to belive the entire “9/11 Truth” movement is ITSELF a conspiracy, possibly paid for by the Cheney/Rove (“Bush”) Administration or its right-wing supporters, designed to confuse and conflate real important questions about our Government’s massive screw-ups on 9/11 with irrelevant nonsense about the World Trade Center blowing up by itself or some such.
It’s actually an extremely clever proposition. By mixing legitimate questions with completely ridiculous ones, paid agents (remember Armstrong Williams?) try to weaken investigation into the legitimate, real questions of 9/11.
It is no secret that the CIA and FBI make a regular practice of infiltrating organizations that ask legitimate and tough questions of the Government to try to destroy them from the inside. It is no secret that they have done so for decades and continue to do so today. Indeed, now I understand the point of spying on those Vermont Quaker meetings. Those pacifist little old ladies ARE a threat to exposing the truths about our Government and in that way, they can pose a greater threat to the current US Governmental regime than Saddam Hussein ever did.
Frankly, I’m surprised I didn’t surmise this out sooner, but now that I see it, it makes a lot of sense. It reminds me of the Leftist/Anarchist groups that infiltrate legitimate progressive critiquing organizations to destroy them from the inside, a common CIA tactic.
So this is a show where I hope to expose the so-called “9/11 Truth Movement” for what I believe it to be — paid right-wing hacks posing as left-wing hacks and trying to distract us from the real truth of what happened on 9/11. Some of this is hard to prove, I admit, but I hope to at least raise legitimate questions with my learned guest.
Unlike “9/11 Truth”, this is a conspiracy I think I can find evidence to support. I look forward to giving all of you the INSIDE SCOOP! And those of you that believe in this movement but are legitimate citizens — rather than paid informers — I’m sure will welcome my investigation into who these people are and what their REAL agenda is.
I hope to expose a dark and very clever conspiracy to divert our attention from the Administration’s severe failures into 9/11. Right now it’s just a hypothesis, but at the moment, it’s the only theory that can possibly explain the ridiculous conspiracy theories of the so-called “9/11 Truth Movement.”
