Government Agreed to Lie About 9/11 - April 14th 2009, 02:33 PM

http://www.propagandamatrix.com/arti...ent_agreed.htm
Quote:
The senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission - John Farmer - says that the government agreed not to tell the truth about 9/11, echoing the assertions of fellow 9/11 Commission members who concluded that the Pentagon were engaged in deliberate deception about their response to the attack. Farmer served as Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (officially known as the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States), and is also a former New Jersey Attorney General. Farmer's book about his experiences working for the Commission is entitled The Ground Truth: The Story Behind America's Defense on 9/11 , and is set to be released in September. The book unveils how "the public had been seriously misled about what occurred during the morning of the attacks," and Farmer himself states that "at some level of the government, at some point in time...there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened." Only the very naive would dispute that an agreement not to tell the truth is an agreement to lie. Farmer's contention is that the government agreed to create a phony official version of events to cover-up the real story behind 9/11. The publisher of the book, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, states that, "Farmer builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version not only is almost entirely untrue but serves to create a false impression of order and security." In August 2006, the Washington Post reported , "Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate." The report revealed how the 10-member commission deeply suspected deception to the point where they considered referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation. "We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied." Farmer himself is quoted in the Post article, stating, "I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described .... The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.... This is not spin. This is not true." As we also reported in August 2006 , released portions of NORAD tapes from 9/11, which were featured in a Vanity Fair article, do little to answer skeptic's questions about the impotence of U.S. air defenses on 9/11 and if anything only increase focus on the incompatibility of the official version of events with what is actually known to have taken place on that day. Make no mistake, Farmer is not saying that 9/11 was an inside job, however, Farmer's testimony, along with that of his fellow 9/11 Commission members, conclusively demonstrates that, whatever really happened on 9/11, the official story as told to the public on the day and that which remains the authorities' version of events today, is a lie - according to the very people who were tasked by the government to investigate it. This is a fact that no debunker or government apologist can ever legitimately deny.

I don't know what to think of this. I do not like being lied to.

Look at the source. "Propagandamatrix" Sounds extremely biased to me.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Bush administration covered up certain aspects of the 9/11 events, but I think they're trying to put more in there than there really is.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was true, but looking at the source, I am inclined to think this is dumpster. Look at Regan/Bush Sr dealings with the Iranian hostage situation.

Rofl, that source is about as reputable as the French military.

It has always been, and always will be, popular to blame your predecessor for everything under the sun.

So they didn't say anything about 9/11. So bloody what? It implies the lives lost were less worthy

This. Although, fewer people tend to stop, think and analyze then make a choice.

That totally made me laugh. How true.

But, anyways, find a good source, a trustworthy one, and then maybe it'll be a debatable cause. Otherwise that reads like a trashy romance novel, a dime a dozen and not worth the paper they are written on.

Not to be redundant... but I disregarded everything in that quote after reading the source. Do you have a more reputable one?

Yeah, this...this is really not surprising at all. If anything, it's just, "Oh. Well, we all knew about that."

After seeing the source, I'm completely disregarding everything in there.
