When Things Don't Add Up, Consider the Unthinkable

Reader comment on item: The System "Worked Really Very, Very Smoothly" in Detroit?

Submitted by Mark Weiss (United States), Dec 29, 2009 at 01:16

There are lots of ironies in the way our US government fails to protect us, while at the same time taking to treating us more and more like criminals in our own homes.

Consider the absurd, but yet that for which there seems to be growing support for, that 9/11 was no accident. Many parties stood to gain from it. Silverstein is said to have made a fast profit of over a billion dollars off the insurance payout (it is claimed that he added a terrorism provision to the insurance policy on the WTC at the time of purchase), in WTC #7 were loads of case files on several SEC investigations. These were lost forever in the fires of 9/11. Numerous scandel investigations were made impossible as the records were lost in the collapse of WTC7. Several federal agencies not reporting to work in the towers that day.. the list goes on.

But consider the biggest gain: a large-scale event to scare the public, thereby removing opposition to more dictatorial powers and the largest expansion of government into personal lives in the history of the US. This would make Operation Northwoods pale in comparison. Create a catastrophe and use it to justify a war. Use the momentum of that catastrophe to implement spying on US citizens. Total information awareness is what the IRS wants--so that it can increase the tax collection rate to 100%. Once the IRS can't be avoided, then the government can increase the tax rates without loss of compliance.

Something sinister may well be behind 9/11, and it has become an excuse for agencies, drunk with power, to unleash more abuse on the cattle--I mean the taxpayers.
