While the government reminds Americans every September to “never forget” what happened on September 11, 2001, what they really want you to do is remember the government’s version of events that day, and forget everything else that has come out since then.
To be clear, no one here is claiming to know exactly how 9/11 unfolded; however, the revelations which have come forth since that tragic day certainly illustrate that the government and their Praetorian guard that is the mainstream media, haven’t been entirely transparent about what happened that day and the years following.
For starters, despite the majority of the hijackers coming from Saudi Arabia, the US invaded Afghanistan and later Iraq. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were championed by outlets like the NY Times and others as these “reputable” news outlets sold murder and destruction to the American people, which led to the suffering and death of hundreds of thousands of human beings.
For nearly two decades the United States did everything it could to cover up the role of the Saudi state in the murder of 3,000 Americans. However, the evidence is so overwhelming that no amount of “official narrative changing” will stop it and families of victims have had enough.
On Monday, a billboard featuring the parents of 9/11 victims, Geoff Campbell and Bobby McIlvaine, was erected across the street from the New York Times Building, bearing the message, “Our children were murdered on 9/11. Why does the New York Times lie about how they died?”
As A&E for 9/11 Truth reports, the billboard rebukes The New York Times for its 20 years of dishonest coverage about the events of that day — most recently misleading readers about Spike Lee’s HBO docuseries and denigrating many people who were set to be featured in it before it was censored. This and other Times reporting related to the destruction of the WTC towers will be documented in articles soon to be published at AE911Truth.org.
As TFTP previously reported, evidence in a major lawsuit revealed that the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington funded a “dry run” for the hijackings carried out by two Saudi employees.
This information is detailed in a bombshell report out of the NY Post. As the Post reports:
Two years before the airliner attacks, the Saudi Embassy paid for two Saudi nationals, living undercover in the US as students, to fly from Phoenix to Washington “in a dry run for the 9/11 attacks,” alleges the amended complaint filed on behalf of the families of some 1,400 victims who died in the terrorist attacks 16 years ago.
The court filing provides new details that paint “a pattern of both financial and operational support” for the 9/11 conspiracy from official Saudi sources, lawyers for the plaintiffs say. In fact, the Saudi government may have been involved in underwriting the attacks from the earliest stages — including testing cockpit security.
“We’ve long asserted that there were longstanding and close relationships between al Qaeda and the religious components of the Saudi government,” said Sean Carter, the lead attorney for the 9/11 plaintiffs. “This is further evidence of that.”
These issues have nothing to do with how the towers were brought down, which is its own rabbit hole, but the proven facts about the cover-ups and corruption are infuriating enough.
Case in point: FBI agents tasked with investigating Osama Bin Laden prior to the attacks claimed that the CIA withheld intelligence from their headquarters which allowed 9/11 to happen.
The FBI agents who were tasked with investigating Osama bin Laden prior to 9/11 have come forward with damning accusations noting that the CIA deliberately blocked them from informing their headquarters about future Al-Qaeda plotters present in the United States in 2000 and again in the summer of 2001.
“I am sad and depressed about it,” said Mark Rossini, one of the FBI agents assigned to the task force. “It is patently evident the [9/11] attacks did not need to happen and there has been no justice.”
“It’s horrible. We still don’t know what happened,” said Ali Soufan, another lead FBI agent assigned to a counterterrorism unit who was also kept in the dark about the movement of the future 9/11 hijackers.
The CIA stands accused of working with Saudi Arabia to actively cover up the intelligence which could’ve stopped the attacks from taking place that fateful day and no one has faced so much as a slap on the wrist.
“Saudi intelligence has admitted that they knew who these two guys were,” Andrew Maloney, an attorney for families, told Newsweek. “They knew they were Al-Qaeda the day they arrived in Los Angeles. So any notion from the Saudi government saying, ‘Oh, we just help out all Saudis here’ is false. They knew. And the CIA knew,” as reported by Newsweek.
So, if you’re angry at Geoff’s mother Maureen and Bobby’s father Bob — who lost their only two children that day — for putting up that billboard, your anger is misdirected.
