Reason for 9/11

Reason for 9/11

As published in the Ottawa Sun: September 13, 2014 and the Toronto Star: September 22, 3014.

I don’t think that 9/11 was a CIA inside job or a Zionist conspiracy. That being said, the evidence behind the official explanation is implausible. Of course, it is a given that the victims of 9/11 are innocents and their killers need to be punished as severely as the criminal law allows.

The alternative or oppositional significance of 9/11 is the fact that it was the first time North Americans have suffered the kind of terrorist violence common in much of the developing world. What actually surprised me about 9/11 was that it took so long for the horror to occur.

Those who would label me an Al Qaeda booster ought to at least acknowledge the sordid and brutal record of US government (CIA, Special Forces, etc.) in running roughshod over the developing world since 1945; creating enemies and bitter resentments through overt and covert military interventions and arrogant regime changes.

While a violent response to this behaviour was inevitable; why is commentary on that ugly phenomenon absent from the mainstream media?
