I was pleasantly stunned when I saw Coleen Rowley posting a link to the very same article I posted here yesterday:
“Alice in Wonderland is an understatement if you understand the full reality of what’s going on.”
Rowley is, of course, a national hero and national treasure, who tried desperately to stop the 9/11 attacks before they happened, but she was repeatedly blocked from doing so by superiors at FBI headquarters. When she says “down the rabbit hole,” she is not exaggerating, nor being facetious. This is realty in America: the US government plays both sides of the terrorism game. Do you understand this? Do you want to understand this?
Terrorism is a useful tool — in their view — when directed at one’s enemies, and the US government has been using it for as long as you have been alive, in various ploys and disguises around the world.
So when people jump to conclusions about possible “false flag” scenarios, they may be premature, but not without precedent.
You really, really need to read Coleen Rowley’s piece on the Chechen / Al Qaeda connection if you give a damn about any of this. Ignorance is not bliss. Nor is stupidity glamorous or hip.
