September 11th Anger Still Alive

One thing is for sure, regardless of whether you’re angry at George Bush, or stand behind him faithfully, there is still a dark cloud of anger over what happened two years ago. On one hand, there are plenty of sites that bring up very good questions and documentation surrounding that fateful day, including two prominant sites, and The Memory Hole, which also has an entire page devoted to 9/11 facts and papers (the political equivalent of The Smoking Gun website). Another side of me is torn by those who buy into theories without bothering to investigate at all, after all… a large portion of 1930’s Germany was convinced that Jews were taking over the world, even after The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was proven to be a hoax.

I'm still undecided. Many factors have influenced me away from the blind allegiance to the storyline that so many choose to cling to, either from apathy or a willingness to wholeheartedly believe in our government's infallibility and credibility. I won't go into too much depth, but to appoint Henry Kissinger to head the investigation (he later declined) has to set off the klaxons in people who know his shady past.

Certainly, I'm pissed off that 2,792 innocent people died, and no philosophy in the world can justify such abhorrent murder. I want someone to answer for that, and if it's Bin Laden: FIND AND CAPTURE/KILL HIM! If our own government had a hand in things, or willfully ignored verifiable signals: JAIL THEM FOR TREASON!

Is it too much to ask for?
