The Coverup

The cover-up of the reality behind the 9/11/2001 attack began long before the attack, judging from the development of information warfare tools that have been been used, so successfully, to reinforce the official story by setting up ridiculous opponents. Setting aside the corporate media's rubber-stamping of the administration's claims about the attack's responsibility from day one, there are many particular exhibits of the cover-up, including:

  • Military commanders were promoted after presiding over the largest failure in air defense since Pearl Harbor.
  • Evidence was systematically destroyed at all of the crime scenes.
  • FEMA's farcical investigations provided cover for the evidence destruction.
  • The Bush administration blocked a congressional inquiry into the attack for over 400 days. When a commission was finally assembled, President Bush named Henry Kissinger to chair it.
  • The "National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States" -- or Kean Commission, as it was commonly called, after former New Jersey governor Thomas Kean replaced Kissinger -- avoided questioning any of the key assumptions of the official story.

These are only some of the more obvious and concrete aspects of the cover-up evident in the behavior of high officials. A cover-up is also apparent in the way the official story was packaged and sold by the corporate and foundation-funded media. These media largely ignored challenges to the official story until 2004, when attacks in prominent publications started.

The involvement of large numbers of people in a cover-up of the crimes of 9/11/01 may be far less conspiratorial than it might at first seem. Actions on behalf of the cover-up may have diverse motivations. For example, officials may have been more inclined to unquestioningly follow orders in the wake of the attack. Top officials could be covering up for their failure to repel the attack, or for their being blackmailed by the attackers.
