No Holiday from Hard Questions

We’ve mourned our dead. We’ve passed through denial and anger (well, SOME of us have) and moved on to various degrees of acceptance. Now, before the holidays take up all our attention, it’s time to ask some hard questions about circumstances leading up to and beyond the eleventh of September. There exists far too many unasked or unanswered questions for any intelligent person in a democracy to expect broad support for the Administration’s “war” to be anything more than a fabrication of social engineering. With that in mind we ask:

  • Why isn’t the U.S. media, not to mention Congress and government watchdogs, publicly investigating how suspected terrorists were able to enter and operate within our borders for years? 
  • Why aren’t there public inquiries asking how these individuals were able to commandeer four commercial aircraft and fly them far off course for an extended period without immediate detection and interception?
  • Why have various world leaders viewed the evidence against Osama bin Laden, but the citizens of the U.S. have not?
  • Why did so many Congressmen and Senators vote for legislation (The Patriot Act) restricting our fundamental constitutional rights without reading the bill?
  • Why isn’t the media looking into stories of unusual stock transfers prior to 9-11; into the politics of oil relating to the U.S., Russia, Afghanistan, and the surrounding nations; or into long-time Bush ­ bin Laden family connections?
  • How is it we never see or hear in-depth analysis of international politics, let alone the effects of U.S. policy on so-called Third World Nations, in the mainstream U.S. media?Well, given the on-going anti-democratic corporate takeover of this nation, both within government and throughout the media, many of these questions seem rather rhetorical. Most can be answered by simply saying: because it’s not in their interest! I could go on with this line of questioning, but should I bother when no one seems to be listening?

But, there is one point to be made just by asking these questions, an important point in an open and free society:
Asking such questions is NOT, I repeat NOT, an unpatriotic act. This nation was founded on questioning authority and if you have a problem with that maybe you should checkout those constitutional ammedments everyone’s talking about…..before they completely disappear!
