Historical Revisionism and the Conspiratorial View of History
Though the ranks are thinning, there still exists today those who believe the official stories about the JFK assassination (40%) and the attacks on 9/11 (50%).
Despite great progress in rational, evidence-based discovery and the clear refutation of official false narratives promulgated by the US Government and its protectors surrounding JFK and 9/11, there is much less progress concerning other major historical events: great swaths of people still cling to many other historical myths too uncomfortable to question. Some of these myths are so dangerous 17 countries have found it necessary to fine or imprison any who may question official historical accounts. It seems certain areas of the historical record are off limits; so today’s history requires a law –in place of evidence– to protect questionable official assertions.
And to buttress our false history, logical fallacies are deployed; and the media and the education systems are joined together repeating these false accounts until they become truth by repetition. Questions are met with personal attacks: crazy, paranoid or the tried and true CIA weaponized term ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is dutifully deployed preventing any rational discussion of fact-based evidence.
Despite the great headway on these two high-profile topics (JFK & 9/11), there remain many more handicapped by the official stories of WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and today’s War on Terrorism.
So how to provide the historically handicapped masses an ‘easy-ramp’ to discover the truth for themselves? For Vietnam, should we mention the Gulf of Tonkin attack that never happened; For WWII should we mention FDR had foreknowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor? The official historical accounts of every major conflict in the 20th and 21st Centuries have been thoroughly disproved by sourced, documented evidence and require revision not based on crazy paranoid theories but based in fact. (Please see the Reece Committee report below.)
To make matters worse for this official myth, a former NIST employee presents additional damning evidence 9/11 was an inside job; but it doesn’t stop there. Much more evidence is available; evidence that does not require ANY physical data to prove up this case conclusively to the rational mind. This evidence has been carefully chronicled and documented by researchers like Richard Grove and James Corbett (see Corbett’s 9/11 Suspects here).
So why is it so important to hold the real perpetrators accountable? Because the perpetrators of this crime against America are the same people in charge of the levers of power today. They are still very dangerous to the interests of the American people, and seek –not America’s benefit– but their own selfish agenda. Who benefitted from the 9/11 project? There are many who benefitted, but those who make their living from the American war machine benefitted most.
Why 9/11 was necessary
After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, America’s #1 bad guy was no more; and defense spending was taking a frightful downturn, requiring a new, more permanent, intractable enemy to motivate the American public to spend to be safe. They needed a “new Pearl Harbor”.
Enter Project for the New American Century (PNAC) . According to PNAC and others who feed at the US Military Industrial Complex (MIC) trough, it was necessary to discover or invent another scary bad guy to replace the now deceased Soviet Union; but this time, this new frightful enemy should go on forever, and not end suddenly like the Soviet Union did. 9/11 was the perfect project to solve their spending problem, and to create in their own words “A new Pearl Harbor”: transformation of American armed forces through “new technologies and operational concepts” was likely to be a long one,“absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”
As a result of the 9/11 Project, millions of innocent people have lost their lives and been dislocated from their homes in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Meanwhile, the bank accounts of the MIC once again are swollen with trillions, and the bankers are happy too. Today, as people tire of the War on Terrorism meme, this same MIC –with the help of the Main Stream Media (MSM)– are attempting to resurrect and restimulate America’s decade’s-old fear of the big bear, Russia. It doesn’t matter that the Soviet is no more, they believe they can demonize Russia with the help of the corporate media and poison the minds of the American people enough to resurrect fears so profitable decades ago. It’s time to stop being their fool. Now.

In August of 2016, a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) began looking into the reports his agency had released years earlier on the collapse of the World Trade Center. What he found shook him to the core.
In this poignant half-hour interview, Peter Michael Ketcham tells his story of discovering that the organization where he had worked for 14 years had deliberately suppressed the truth about the most pivotal event of the 21st century.
Through his willingness to look openly at what he failed to see in front of him for 15 years, Mr. Ketcham inspires us to believe that we can all muster the courage to confront the truth — and, in so doing, finally heal the wounds of 9/11.
