On 9/11/01 four hijacked planes by 18-19 men of Saudi Arabian origin, armed with box-cutters, commanded from a man in a cave, crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon (of which, all anyone has ever seen of a plane hitting, is just 4 frames of grainy film) and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Immediately, the United States Military apparatus and intelligentsia stated that it must have been their one time ally against the Soviets, Osama Bin Laden. They couldn't stop it, but yet they knew immediately who did it. This from the same powers that took 8 years to get the supposed mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed to confess in Guantanamo. I thought terrorists loved taking credit for what they did? That's why they made suicide tapes, right?
What followed was perhaps blue-printed long ago. The Patriot Act was immediately passed and enforced. Only two U.S Senators voted against it and one of them ended up dead in a plane crash one year later, Paul Wellstone. Was that a message sent to detractors? We then invaded Afghanistan to get rid of the Taliban, the same organization funded by the United States military to oppose the Soviets when they were our cold-war enemy, and then we invaded Iraq to rid Saddam Hussein of WMD's that we most probably gave him to fight Iran. We know what has happened since.
Now, after the Arab Spring and the rapid spread of chaotic forms of Democracy rampant throughout the Middle East, the breaking point may have just been reached. The Israeli Defense Forces assassinated the military leader of Hamas (considered a terrorist organization by Israel/ but if you are a Palestinian you would think otherwise) and Hamas responded with a statement that Israel may have just "opened the gates of hell." Israel has called up 75,000 troops for a possible ground offensive into Gaza. Stay tuned for more developments, but it all plays eerily into the 12/21/12 end date? With much knowledge, comes much suffering. Ignorance is bliss. But then, why are so many Americans on anti-depressants?
On Tuesday, November 13th a total solar eclipse took place, mostly visible from the coasts of Australia, but we as Americans have been experiencing an eclipse of a different sort, and that's been in the form of the media coverage of the ever intriguing, ever deepening webs of interwoven emails and correspondences in the feet beneath the desks of now former CIA Director David Petraeus, the once golden-boy of the military establishment who has been brought low by his inability to keep his hands to himself, and off of his biographer Paula Broadwell. As a result, the FBI has also searched the Charlotte, North Carolina home of Ms. Broadwell. The mess just seems to spread like a toxic spill out of a BP oil rig. Apparently the US General Commander of troops in Afghanistan John Allen is involved in all of this as a result of email correspondence that he had developed with a Florida socialite by the name of Jill Kelley.
Will wonders never cease? The head of the CIA couldn't keep a secret. You can't make this stuff up. The former commander of the "surge" in Iraq and Afghanistan has had a extra-marital affair end his career. Bill Clinton knows how that feels, but then again, he's got Hillary and his daughter Chelsea to pick up where he left off. But oh, how the mighty are brought so low, and so quickly.
This all leads to the million dollar question, and that is, "When did the White House know?" In all probability they did know, long before election day came and went. I know that the CIA director's personal life has no real bearing on politics, but you have to imagine it would have played a factor in the results of the Presidential election. Another central issue at the heart of the matter is also that concerning the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12, and what possible prior knowledge of an imminent attack was shelved?? So, if they can go through the emails of the director of the CIA, I have to imagine, mine as well as any of yours is fair game as well; that is the most scary and pressing issue at heart. Now ask yourself, do we live in a National Security State? Please see Mr. George Orwell for further questions.
