Activist Post: ReThink 9/11: The Truth That Could Still Unravel an Empire of Lies

A really great article by Activist Post regarding the ReThink911.org campaign and 9/11 truth the movement in general. However, this excerpt really struck me and so I've singled it out.


The 9/11 truth movement has no single manifestation, but remains driven and defined not by its most prominent voices, but by its mandate to counter a sea of lies and evoke something that establishes the truth. History may well view 9/11 not as the day America was attacked by a foreign terrorist group, but the day the United States – a once great republic defined by its Constitution and an established respect for individual rights and a separation of powers – began to nosedive into decline.

The reasons are numerous, even legion. So are the lies that began with that traumatic national wound. The truth then, necessarily, is detailed and multifaceted. It has many angles that each yield important pieces of a profound but simple revelation – a great nation’s laws, the American way of life, already undermined and deteriorating, was hijacked and transformed by the power of “magic.” Not supernatural magic directed by forces unseen, but a complicated parlor trick, concocted by a cadre of powerful illusionists who’ve taken the world for a sick, twisted and regrettable ride.

Untangling that lie – that is, even beginning to contemplate repair and restoration – requires confronting that truth, the essential truth, from whatever angle one finds to be a traversable path.

One of the most palatable, yet confrontational remains the question of World Trade Center Building 7.

Though it was not hit by a plane, nor severely damaged by the wreckage of the collapses of the Twin Towers, the 47-foot skyscraper, which housed important government and finance institutions, collapsed well into the afternoon of 9/11, and significantly, appeared to collapse just as buildings taken down deliberately by demolition do.

Its collapse – broadcast live during the chaotic and traumatic news coverage of the day – fits into the official story of 9/11 like a square peg into a round hole. WTC7 clashes so soundly with the version of events sold to the public, that raising awareness of its very existence has been enough to snap countless individuals out of their 9/11 “hypnosis” and allow other pertinent questions to be raised – and actually contemplated.

It was omitted from the 9/11 Commission’s final report, but officially explained via fires that brought down the support columns. While such fires did exist, they do little to explain the structural failure that caused the building to fall suddenly and completely at a rate quite close to free fall speed. After considerably delay, the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) explained away the event as if sweeping dirt under a rug to avoid embarrassment.

Instead groups like Architects & Engineers for 9/11 and various awareness campaigns –including ReThink 9/11 – have studied the case of WTC7 from the point of view of physics, science, public policy and common sense to present an alternative explanation considerably closer to reality.

WTC Building 7 has become a rallying point for 9/11 conspiracy realists – awakened to the fact that the fast & furious conclusion of the September 11 attacks were used to pursue a dark political agenda – and instead use its embarrassing, sore thumb, loose end of an existence (prior to collapse that is) to raise and perpetuate compelling questions that can not and should not be ignored.
