9/11 Ten Years Later

Polls tell us that 1/3 of Americans do not believe the official story the 9/11 Commission Report set out regarding the attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. (Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll) This seems to be for good reason considering the amount of unanswered questions surrounding the event. Since 9/11, there have been worldwide crackdowns on security including the introduction of many bills and acts that put the rights and freedoms of citizens at risk in various countries.

A 12-year and incredibly costly war, both financially and in terms human lives, has come as a result of the 9/11 attacks which began the idea of pre-emptive wars. The US now has better control over oil, other commodities in the areas invaded and a tighter security squeeze on their citizens. While argued, it seems more than obvious that the idea of terrorism is now a piece politicians use to pass what would otherwise be un-passable acts and bills. It is also a term thrown around heavily by mass media that immediately draws attention, builds fear and gains the support of people for almost anything. But is it possible that Islamic terrorism is not a serious threat regardless of what governments and mass media have said?

Many seem to think so and it isn’t just the “crazy conspiracy theorists” as the media and government like to call them.

People from all walks of life, levels of education and social status’ have been questioning 9/11 since the day it happened. They have reason to, the story simply does not add up…
