America’s Willful Negligence Concerning the 9/11 Attacks

By Joe Giambrone, Political Film Blog.

Since December 2002at the latest, it became glaringly obvious that certain individuals in the US government had lied about how the 9/11 attacks had come to be. When the Bush administration censored the official congressional investigation, the “Joint Inquiry” into the attacks, notably the 28-page section on foreign state funding to the named hijackers, its legitimacy crumbled.

With that first 9/11 investigation redacted and numerous questions outstanding, the attack victims’ families pressed for a second investigation, later to be known as the “9/11 Commission.” Key findings of this Commission were false—or falsified—as those now released “28 pages” show.

The public evidence against the Saudis is partial and wasn’t followed-up on, indicating internal pressures both before and after the attacks.

“One reason for the limited understanding is that it was only after September 11 that the U.S. Government began to aggressively investigate this issue. Prior to September 11th, the FBI apparently did not focus investigative resources on [REDACTED] Saudi nationals in the United States due to Saudi Arabia’s status as an American ‘ally.’”
-Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11th, 2001, p.415

Senator Bob Graham, its primary author, has complained vociferously in the years since. The BBC revealed a White House document telling US law enforcement to avoid investigating the Saudis, soon after the Bush administration seized power in January, 2001.

“After the elections, the agencies were told to ‘back off’ investigating the Bin Ladens and Saudi royals, and that angered agents.”
-Greg Palast, BBC Newsnight, November 6, 2001

The evidence of government malfeasance around the 9/11 attacks is not theoretical. The Joint Inquiry implicates Saudi agents who aided several of the named hijackers inside the US. They are Omar al Bayoumi, Osama Bassnan, Shaykh al-Thumairy, Saleh al-Hussayen, and Abdullah bin Laden, the brother of Osama! Prince Bandar bin Sultan, “Bandar Bush,” is also named throughout the report and supplied money to those named individuals. Further redactions plague the current version of the Joint Inquiry report, which could potentially implicate others.

They all walked free, while 2,996 civilians perished in the attacks and another 6,000 were wounded. Over 4,000 first responders have contracted cancer since, due to the toxic environment of the aftermath.

The 28 pages are a starting point, not the end. In 2005 (three years later), the CIA Inspector General, under pressure, released another damning report:

“[Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Midhar] were among the hijackers of 9/11, were known by the [CIA] in early January 2000 to have traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to participate in a meeting of suspected terrorists… In January 2000, CTC officers received information that one of these suspected terrorists had a US visa; in March 2000, these officers had information that the other had flown from Bangcock to Los Angeles. In the period January through Mrach 2000, some 50 to 60 individuals read one or more of six Agency cables containing travel information related to these terrorists. (emphasis added)”
-CIA Office of Inspector General Report, 2005, page xiii/xiv

The controversy concerns what the CIA prefers to call “information sharing” (with FBI), but the Counterterrorism Advisor to the White House, Richard Clarke, has described this as CIA deliberately hiding vital information from his office and from the FBI.

“Unless someone intervened to stop the normal automatic distribution, I would automatically get it… There was not a lack of information sharing. They told us everything – except this. (emphasis added)”
-Richard Clarke, Terror “Czar,” 1992-2003

Clarke was the highest counterterrorism official in America on 9/11. When he accused George Tenet of hiding the terrorists from him and his staff the corporate media went silent, rather than investigating these leads. The CIA denied everything and still clings to its mistakes-were-made story. The CIA’s official “incompetence” story has all the key incompetents promoted rather than fired.

Several FBI agents desperate to prevent 9/11 also had direct dealings with CIA operatives. An FBI liason to the CIA’s Counter-Terrorism Center (CTC), Doug Miller, drafted a memo to alert the FBI about Hazmi and Midhar coming to America, but a CIA superior blocked that cable from ever being sent.

“You follow terrorists halfway around the God damned globe. You find out they have visas on their passport, and you don’t tell the FBI?”
-FBI Agent Mark Rossini

Beyond the CIA’s obstruction of justice and arguably aiding and abetting terrorists—which would be Treason—the NSA also prevented its surveillance of Al Qaeda phone calls from ever reaching the US FBI agents on the case.

“Between 2000 and 2001, as many as twenty calls were made between Hazmi and Midhar and a known Al Qaeda number in Yemen. The NSA never distributed this information to the FBI.”
-Author Lawrence Wright, The New Yorker

Enough deliberate obstruction allowed the 9/11 attacks to succeed that it is shocking how Americans remain apathetic, complacent, and willfully ignorant of the known facts, nevermind the unknown story, which remains covered-up. A Florida court is currently hiding 80,000 pages of FBI surveillance of a mansion owned by a Saudi family connected to the hijackers.

To be clear, these are 80k pages that were never seen by the House of Representatives or Senate to formulate their Joint Inquiry into 9/11. They were never seen by the 9/11 Commission, a supposedly independent body that was actually stuffed with conflicts of interest and insiders.

Multiple hijackers visited this Sarasota mansion, and yet for some reason the FBI has lied about their investigation of it. The record remains classified to this day.

So many clear red flags poke out of the official 9/11 story, and yet the American people largely prefer comfortable myths to hard truths. The propaganda has gotten so thick that you can now read op-eds on CNN with absurd headlines like, “This congressional act [JASTA] threatens US national security.” The author happened to be a Saudi, of course, but more importantly, Nawaf Obaid “previously was special adviser to Saudi Prince Turki Al Faisal.”

Who is Turki Al Faisal?

Only the head of Saudi intelligence, the key man in the arrangement between that Kingdom and Osama bin Laden! CNN should be investigating the many links between Turki Al Faisal and Al Qaeda, not giving Faisal’s lackey free reign to mislead the American public.

The 2002 Congressional 9/11 investigation was declassified in 2016, after it had been officially covered-up for fourteen years. During that time the US population swallowed the Big Lie. Then it went back to sleep.

The public simply accepted myths and ignored facts, particularly the fact of deliberate cover-up of Saudi official complicity in the attacks. Such a cover-up is Treason under the US Constitution, which has since become a dead letter.

We entered the Age of Treason on the morning of September 11th, 2001, and that crime has continued in broad daylight under three presidents. Hiding the fact of Saudi Arabian state complicity into an attack on America is “aid and comfort” to the enemy. Specific US officials should be arrested and tried, still. The Saudi regime should be rightly considered the enemy of the people of the United States today, as well as others.

Given these realities, one would still be hard-pressed to locate a single American citizen who actually read the 28 pages that prove Saudi complicity in the greatest attack on America since Pearl Harbor—if not ever. When historians recount the fall of America, they will need to acknowledge the deliberate willful ignorance of the population in allowing it to happen.

The America we find ourselves in today is divided and conquered. It is in the interest of the people who wield power: money, media, industry, to provoke the common people into shouting about partisan politics and ignoring the workings of the deep state. Issues like 9/11 Treason are brushed aside in favor of ten-thousand more trivial things, such as whatever Donald Trump last Tweeted.

The people have become negligent, uninformed and overtly hostile to facts that challenge the dominant myths they have swallowed. That is the crux of the game, an information war of attrition. Propaganda resonates subtly across layers of society, like skins of an onion. Regular people are compelled by social pressures to either accept the dominant myth of 9/11 and other government controversies labeled “conspiracy theories,” or to shut up to avoid hostility and ridicule.

The truth of matters like war and peace, terror attacks and covert operations no longer interest the general public enough to invest time into understanding them. Ignorance won. The public has been conditioned to look to their cell phones and to their corporate talking heads, who provide them all the understanding required of cogs in a machine. That machine is empire, a belligerent state of perpetual warfare divorced from legal or moral restraint.

When the facts of international provocations no longer interest the people who can restrain the empire, then the elites in charge have gained a free hand to attack the next targets on their hit list. Since 9/11, we have seen US aggression and destabilization of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Ukraine, Venezuela, Somalia, and ongoing threats against North Korea, China and most dangerously: Russia.

Those are only the most obvious examples, while in the shadows the US military sent its Special Forces into 138 countries. It created AFRICOM to apply force to uncooperative African nations.

By what right?

The September 11th attacks provide a blanket, perpetual cassus belli for Washington to target smaller nations around the globe on the pretext that those have some amorphous connection to “terror.” That was the motive for the 9/11 attacks. It was premeditated and admitted to in the Project For a New American Century document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” Some key people wanted it, and they committed Treason to get it, and to keep it covered up.

One cannot “rebuild” America’s defenses unless those defenses have somehow failed. That failure was engineered to be “a catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a New Pearl Harbor.” Far from a “failure,” however, the 9/11 attacks proved to be a rousing success for those invested in the Military-Industrial-Complex. US military spending more than doubled in the subsequent years, from $301.7B in 2000, when their manifesto was written, to more than $711B at its peak in 2011. The military budget dwarfs all other areas of US government spending, and it is where America’s wealth is redirected.

    “America’s Willful Negligence Concerning the 9/11 Attacks”?

    Yes, America appears to be ASLEEP, with regard to SO MANY things, including the “Jew”-ish HIJACKING of every major institution in the Western Hemisphere (Wall Street, BANKS, Hollywood, MSM (Mainstream Media ~ magazines, newspapers, television, ABC, CBS, NBC ~ Music Industry, really EVERYTHING). It was the ARISTOCRACY of primarily England, at a time when the “sun never set upon the British Empire”, that began intermarrying into wealthy “Jew”-ish BANKING & merchant families. Young, LANDED, & TITLED English NOBLE-MEN married the (FIAT) wealthy daughters of “Jew”-ish BANKERS & merchants, and so, their off-spring, with a “Jew”-ish Mother, were now “Jew”-ish, yet English “Aristocrats” in NAME & TITLE, ONLY. They then began importing into Britain, the LOWLIEST of Yiddish-speaking “Jews”. By hijacking the MONEY POWER of ‘the West’, they were able to insinuate themselves into every other area of Western society. Who was the OWNER of the WTC I, II, and Building 7? What was his name? Answer: Larry SILVER-STEIN.

    For anyone that hasn’t taken the time to EDUCATE him or herself ~ and therefore doesn’t KNOW that the “Jews” have HIJACKED every major institution of Western Civilization ~ here is some information, that will get you started in comprehending how, and when it happened.

    1) An ABSOLUTE MUST Read! Is the New World Order “Jewish”?

    2) The “Jewish” Conspiracy is British Imperialism:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to SERIOUSLY THANK, and HIGHLY RECOMMEND Washington’s Blog, for actually posting my comments, when only a relatively few other sites will do so. Typically, MOST other so-called “alternative” media sites, really are NOT that “alternative” after all.

    So, A HUGE THANK YOU, for allowing THE TRUTH, to be exposed on your blog, at a time when AMERICA is in DESPERATE NEED OF THE TRUTH. (And, I will continue to do my part, in continuing MY research, and exposing what I uncover, in a manner that will allow others to more easily discover the truth for themselves.)

    America’s Willful Negligence Concerning the 9/11 Attacks

    Americans are in denial about 9/11.
    Their denial of it is almost as great as their denial of white privilege.
    Even when you show them the truth they reject it.

    Oh well. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t change a beggar in the middle of a stream.

    • nomadd says:

      for example, white privilege deniers don’t know this; or if they do they willfully neglect it.

      “The USA was one of the the last “democracies” to (allegedly) abandon
      slavery, and it took the lives of almost 700,000, mostly poor
      working-class young men, to do it. I say “allegedly,” because if anyone
      thinks slavery has been abolished in the USA, I suggest you watch “13th,”
      a most enlightening Netflix documentary on how the 13th Amendment to
      the US constitution just transferred slavery to the prison systems.”

    • nomadd says:

      “This is a class society; it always has been. This reactionary class
      society places its limitations on individuals, not just in terms of
      occupation, but also regarding self expression, being mobile, and being
      free to be creative and do anything they want to do . . . In America, we
      have not only a class society, we also have a caste system, and Black
      people are fitted into the lowest caste.” -Huey Newton

      The fact that white people are not in that caste means that they are privileged. But…

      You can lead a horse to water but you can’t change a beggar in the middle of a stream.

    • nomadd says:

      “Three black detectives in the New York Police Department‘s
      intelligence division filed a federal lawsuit against the department on
      Monday, saying they were denied promotions because of their race and
      that lesser-qualified white officers were promoted instead.
      The detectives joined the unit, which is responsible for investigating terrorism
      and other crimes, in 2001. They said they had track records of solid
      investigative work, recommendations from their superiors and stellar
      performance reviews. They said they were passed over for promotions,
      while supervisors elevated white, less-experienced detectives who
      performed worse.”

      The ability to be promoted ahead of more qualified blacks. That’s white privilege.

      But of course…

      You can lead a horse to water but you can’t change a beggar in the middle of a stream.

    • nomadd says:

      If white supremacy exists in “Amerika” then, it’s axiomatic. White privilege exists. It is not a “fiction”.

      “Takiyah Thompson and other defendants await trial on felony charges, in
      Durham, North Carolina, for tearing down the statue of a Confederate
      soldier. The 22 year-old student and Workers World party activist had
      this to say about the county sheriff that arrested the protesters:
      “Policing is a white supremacist institution.””

      “BAR editor and senior columnist Margaret Kimberley said it’s “silly” to
      debate whether Donald Trump is a white supremacist, or not. “Yes, Trump
      is racist,” said Kimberley, “but 60 million people voted for him.”
      Racism pays political dividends in the U.S. “We should spend our time
      talking about obvious evidence of white supremacy in the entire system,”
      she said.”

      But of course…

      You can lead a horse to water but you can’t change a beggar in the middle of a stream.

    • nomadd says:

      here’s another white privilege. to not be assaulted or killed by the police because of your skin color.

      You can lead a horse to water but you can’t change a beggar in the middle of a stream.

    • nomadd says:

      “There’s no such thing as white privilege.” That’s about the most ignorant thing I have ever heard.

    • nomadd says:

      Paul Street thinks white privilege exists.

      “These privileged [PRIVILEGED] Caucasian Coliseum crowds belong in giant Re-Education
      camps with posters of Frantz Fanon, W.E.B DuBois, Martin Luther King,
      and Malcolm X staring down on them while they manufacture wind turbines
      and solar panels from sunup to sundown. Their big planet-cooking and
      mind-numbing SUVs and flat screen televisions should be seized from
      coliseum parking lots and suburban McMansions to be melted down and
      recycled into water, wind, and solar technology.”

    • nomadd says:

      And things have not changed since Jim Crow as much as Giambrone imagines.

      “We Still Need Green Books

      Although we may not necessarily need a revival of the Green Book, discrimination is still alive and well when it comes to tourism and finding lodging while black. Sites like Airbnb have come under scrutiny after some hosts allegedly denied service based on race.

      That might mean there’s room for a modern-day take on the Green Book’s philosophy of providing safe spaces for black travelers. After all, there’s a reason sites like Noirbnb, Innclusive, and Travel Noire—which was recently acquired by media startup Blavity—have popped up in the last few years: Vacationing while black continues to be fraught with peril. The Negro Motorist’s Green Book existed to save black travelers from being forcibly removed from their cars, or harassed in unwelcoming towns. Nowadays you may just be the victim of a cancelled rental, but even so, the threat of violence remains. The fact that these travel sites exist says as much about the problem as much as the Negro Traveler’s Green Book once did: for black travelers, safety isn’t guaranteed, even when you’re on vacation.”

    • nomadd says:

      Yet another white privilege:
      The White Privilege of the “Lone Wolf” Shooter

      “Privilege always stands in contrast to how others are treated, and it’s true in this case, too: White men who resort to mass violence are consistently characterized primarily as isolated “lone wolves” — in no way connected to one another — while the most problematic aspects of being white in America are given a pass that nobody else receives.”

    • nomadd says:

      forgot about this one. Oscar Nominee Mark Ruffalo thinks ‘White Privilege exists.

      “Backing calls for the Academy Awards to improve
      diversity among its nominees, actor Mark Ruffalo joins several Hollywood
      figures in criticizing this [last] year’s Oscars after there were no black
      actors nominated for the second year in a row.

      In this Guardian video, Ruffalo says “the entire American system is rife with…white privilege racism.””

    • nomadd says:

      “We White people have a lot to look at, learn about and dispose of. It helps to expose ourselves to the voices of People of Color, for whom White Supremacy is an unavoidable, everyday reality. They have plenty for us to learn, though none of them are beholden to teach us anything.”

      yet when i offer my insight, they recoil defensively and call ME a racist.

    • nomadd says:

      some more apparently needed insight on white privilege

      The horror of what is white supremacy is ultimately stripped of its
      historical and current roll in supporting capitalism and is diluted when
      liberals only see white supremacy through the prism of *individualistic
      interpersonal relations.* Privilege politics is a manifestation of
      individualizing white supremacy. Rather than struggling against
      *the structural forces that create white privilege*
      in the first place we are instead expected to meekly ask that white people somehow give up their privileges or at very least
      *recognize that they have privilege.*
      It should be obvious to anyone that that makes little sense because it
      forces us to depend on white people to enact symbolic change while we
      surrender what little power we have in the first place to make
      fundamental social change. Privilege politics also assumes that white
      supremacy in our society is result of individualistic patterns and
      behaviors when in fact people’s patterns and behaviors reflect the
      political and economic conditions of the society.”

    • nomadd says:

      People in the insulated narcissistic entertainment industry (including Neo-Blacks like Morgan Freeman) are often oblivious to white privilege.

      “In a statement that shows nothing other than how privileged she
      is to be white, actress Julie Delpy, star of “The Avengers: Age of
      Ultron”, revealed at the Sundance Film Festival that the toughest gig in
      Hollywood is being female.”

      “To be exact, she said “Two years ago, I said something about the
      Academy being very white male, which is the reality, and I was slashed
      to pieces by the media. It’s funny — women can’t talk. I sometimes wish I
      were African American because people don’t bash them afterward.””

      “Yeah, Julie ‘Becky Bingbing’ Delpy, African Americans get PRE-bashed, so being bashed afterward isn’t even a “thing.” ”

      “For example, Miss BeckBeck, a BLACK WOMAN would never have gotten
      your role in the Avengers due to her skin color alone. You not only
      tried out for the role, but got it. Would they have taken Jada
      Pinkett Smith, a better and SUPERIOR actress who is a veteran in
      Hollyweird and considered an “A-Lister” for that small minority called
      “Black Hollywood”? NO. She wouldn’t have even been put up for it, and
      that’s based on her RACE ALONE. For the roles YOU will get, she won’t
      even be up at-bat.”
