The questions of 9/11 are still unanswered
The War on Terrorism was a project which was launched to salvage Israel from political dissolution or at least delay its collapse.
TEHRAN—It's not unjustifiable or irrational to argue that the 9/11 attacks were designed and intended to rescue Israel from a political dissolution which was seen by many thinkers as its ultimate destiny, and to promote the cordial coalition of Bush and Bin Laden families. It's no wonder that 9 years after the attacks on New York's Twin Towers and Pentagon, Osama Bin Laden, who is introduced as an Islamic fundamentalist and terrorist that masterminded and directed the 9/11 attacks, hasn't been arrested or killed yet.
For those who are familiar with the world of journalism, it's comprehensible that Osama Bin Laden was simply a name put forward to become the target of ad hominem attacks by the mainstream media to appease the fury and pain of Americans who couldn't digest the tragic loss of life in a chain of suicidal attacks which were carried out by the agents of a political entity which has so far succeeded in surviving thanks to citizens kept in the dark about where their taxes go.
Two days after the attacks, President George W. Bush said on September 13, 2001 that finding Bin Laden is the administration's first priority. These are his words: "the most important thing for us is to find Osama bin Laden. It’s our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
6 months later, everything changed. These are the words of President George W. Bush, too: "I don't know where he is. I have no idea and I really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
The priority changes in 6 months. Isn't it ridiculous? No. Realistically, it's simply painful. The mission has been accomplished and Osama Bin Laden, a political scapegoat, has been vilified and stigmatized to the extent that every American would point the finger of suspicion at him. No-body would think of any other possibility. Osama Bin Laden, an internationally renowned terrorist, had carried out the attacks. So, there should be a War on Terrorism in which the culprits of 9/11 attacks would be punished categorically.
But, what is the reality behind the tragic terrorist attack on the United States?
Although Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, which all of us know was founded and funded by CIA, has been introduced as the terrorist who directed the 9/11 attacks, we should never forget that good friends never betray each other. Bin Laden is a good friend of the United States who sacrificed his innocence at the cost of rescuing Bush administration from public scrutiny.
As reported by Denver Post's columnist Cindy Rodríguez, "in 1978, Bush and Osama bin Laden's brother, Salem bin Laden, founded Arbusto Energy, an oil company based in Texas."
The Denver Post's report includes some more interesting facts regarding the connection between Bush and Bin Laden families:
Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle Group, including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker, held a meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along with Shafiq bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden's brothers.
And finally, it's helpful to refer to Rick Wiles' investigative research in which some new dimensions of Bush family's connections to Bin Laden family has been revealed:
What is clear is that War on Terrorism was a project which was launched to salvage Israel from political dissolution or at least delay its collapse. It's also a definite reality that the U.S. administration would never identify planners and leaders behind the 9/11 attacks, because these people have ongoing relationships with the U.S. Government's elite. Osama Bin Laden was a name to entertain the global public opinion, and a cause célèbre to justify continuing "The War on Terror." As the Press TV columnist Mohioddin Sajedi noted in his recent article, Israel was the sole winner of 9/11 attacks. Remember those five dancing Israelis who cheered victoriously while capturing videos of the collapsing Twin Towers. That's the reality.
