Lies, lies and more lies. Honestly, I grew up in a family with high, respectable morals. You just do not lie. End of story. Mistakes may be made, but learn from them and move on. Therefore, with these values embedded in my mind, it is natural for me to believe rather than disbelieve. For the most part, on an individual basis, I still do. However, with the lies which have emerged from the Megaupload take-down, does the government really think the people of this country are that gullible? We must be as so much shit passes before our eyes.
Robert Peraza lost his son on 9/11 after he was trapped on the 104th floor of the North Tower, just above the gaping hole left in the building by the impact of American Airlines flight 11.
Each artist created a 10 second animation clip with their own personal angle relating to the theme:
9/11. It’s been ten years.
Here is another video feature by Time Magazine covering a family of four sons and their father who are all firefighters. Watch their emotional stories about 9/11, where one son fell victim to this tragedy.

As always, Time puts out some incredible work, photography, and film. In putting aside all the controversy which has arisen over the past decade… what truly matters are the victims of this tragedy. Here are four very power recounts of the events which occurred ten years ago by four survivors of this catastrophic event.

Countless people still question the government’s retelling of 9/11, even ten years later. Rick Veitch is one of them.
Veitch, a comic book writer who penned Vertigo’s satirical ‘Army@Love,’ DC’s 80s-era ‘Swamp Thing,’ and frequently collaborates with Alan Moore, recently teamed up with artist Gary Erskine and Image Comics to produce ‘The Big Lie,’ an illustrated look at theories behind 9/11.
There are a plethora of conspiracy theories out there which I have been reading. Many seem far-fetched to me. I am not prone to conspiracy theories, in fact, I often guffaw at them. But from the moment I saw the coverage begin on the Twin Towers nearly ten years ago, there were – and are – many items which did not – and still do not – make sense to me.
Therefore, while perusing the internet, I came across The Telegraphs “21 Awful Truths About 9/11“…
OMG!…. Here is number eight on the list:
“Three hours before the attacks, a machine called a Random Event Generator at Princeton University predicted a cataclysmic event was about to unfold.”
Here is an excerpt from Michael Hingson, who is blind, about his faithful guide dog, Roselle, who led him down 78 flights of stairs in Tower One of the World Trade Center on that fateful date of 9/11/2001.
“It is strange for me to be writing this article while I have feelings of both sadness and joy in my heart. Nevertheless, it is something which must be done.
I found this documentary very intriguing. I, myself, am not prone to be a “conspiracy theorist,” but some very valid points are brought up in this documentary. I remember when I was glued to the TV watching this horrific event unfold in front of my eyes that many questions arose in my mind. I am no expert in this field, but I have two college degrees and 12 years of science and technology at a very prominent engineering college. There were many things which just did… not… make… sense. This documentary was very well made from what appears to be a neutral standpoint. People simply wanting answers and the truth. And there are many items in this documentary which make more sense than what we have been told for nearly a decade now. I urge you to watch and keep an open mind. I honestly do not believe that we (being the general public) will ever know the truth.
Now, for the flip side of my previous post asking FOX to put a lid on it out of respect to the families of the 911 victims….
I most certainly believe in free-thinking… to explore, gather data, and come to my own conclusions. However, when the facts and truths are limited or skewed, I often find myself not being able to being able to reasonably come to a decision. Therefore, I remain agnostic on the matter… neither believing nor disbelieving what has been laid before me.
I have now come to realize I am in a quandry with 911…. First of all, I most certainly believe without a doubt that the general public, such as myself, will never know the true facts behind the collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7. Was it Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda fronting an act of terrorism against the “infedel” know as the US? Was it perhaps Bush and part of the US government (or US-International combination) seeking to obtain world-wide power and financial gain? Or another inexplicable reason altogether? The truths behind this day will never be known beyond a doubt. The families of the innocent will forever suffer. Since the day I watched the towers collapse, it has never set right with me that they went down in a manner much like implosion. And then there’s Building 7….
When I was prepping my previous posting which is asking FOX to shut the #*@! up and stop whining on how Obama sent the Seals in to capture/kill Bin Laden (out of respect for the 911 families), I wanted to include an image of the “FBI Most Wanted” poster of Osama Bin Laden. So I googled away… but what I found surprised me.
No where on this wanted poster does it mention 911…. no where.
It states, “Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. These attacks killed over 200 people. In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world.”
Nothing… nada… zero… zilch.
For nearly ten years, we have been led to believe that Bin Laden was behind this horrific event. Have we been lied to this whole time? Placing blame on OBL for ulterior motives?
I’m tired of excuses and lies. What is the truth?
I am neither affirming nor denying this viewpoint of what occurred on 9/11/2001. Just passing on information for you to decide….
“We got Bin Laden but at what cost and who’s next. Can the president send the Navy Seals to kill the likes of Qaddafi, Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong Il…” quoted from FOX Business “Who Will the President Kill Next?”
Seriously… is FOX really comparing what Bin Laden has done to this country, on US soil, to the likes of Gaddafi? Chavez? Kim Jong Il? Mind you, they are all far from being saints, but relative to what each has done directly to the US, there is no comparison.
Yes, there are several conspiracy theories which point the destruction of the Twin Towers at other parties other than Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. However, for the sake of this blog post, let’s go with the predominant theory that the Twin Towers were the victims of a terrorism attack by OBL and his groupies from Al-Qaeda in order to make a point here.
Since 9/11/2001, Bush, the FBI, the government, and especially the families of those who perished on that most devastating day have been hunting for OBL. On May 1st, 2011, they all finally got what they wanted. At first, praises were sung for President Obama, but now the likes of FOX News and their lack-of-common-sense cohorts are now criticizing Obama for sending in the Seals and killing OBL.
I mean, SERIOUSLY! Did this man not kill nearly 3,000 innocent people? And on American soil! Brought down three buildings – two of which were architectural phenomenons. And these fools want to berate the shooting of an unarmed mass murderer of thousands of innocent people? The pain that these families of the 911 victims must now be going through by listening to this crap. I can only imagine that the majority of them would have loved to have been the Navy Seal that took down Osama.
And now, FOX Business is comparing OBL to the infamous deeds of Gaddafi… Chavez… Kim Jong Il…. That’s comparing apples to oranges. Or Trump to Lincoln. Or the Happy Hooker to Mother Theresa… I think you get my point.
If FOX, Glenn Beck, and their other idiotic whiners and criers did not like the way this all went down… then why didn’t they do it themselves…..
Please, for the sake of the families of 911… muster up a small amout of respect and put a lid on it.
Richard Gage, the architect at the forefront of the activist group Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth, is given some rare mainstream TV airtime, garnering an interview with Detroit’s FOX 2. Somewhat surprisingly, anchor Huel Perkins actually lets him talk at some length:
