The Failure to Investigate 9/11 Has Bankrupted America

Preface: This post does not discuss whether or not 9/11 was a “false flag” operation or an “inside job”.  Anything other than a discussion of the negligence of the Bush administration is unnecessary for the purposes of this essay, and is thus beyond the scope of this post.

In case you didn’t get the memo, we are currently in a depression. And see this

And given that American citizens can be indefinitely detained or assassinated at the whim of the president, it is pretty clear that we now live in a police state.

This post will demonstrate – without getting into discussions of an “inside job” one way or the other – that the failure to hold a real 9/11 investigation is a core cause of our loss of our prosperity and freedom.

The Failure to Investigate 9/11 Has Bankrupted America

Top economists say that endless war bankrupts a nation.

For example, Nobel prize winning economist Joe Stiglitz says that the $3-5 trillion spent on the Iraq war alone has been very bad for the American economy. See this, this and this.

The endless wars have also been a main component of America’s soaring debt:

TAX CUTS DEBT Chinese Rating Agency Says The US Has Already Defaulted ... German Rating Agency Downgrades U.S. Debt

And huge debts exert a very real drag on the economy.

As shown below, we wouldn’t have launched the war against Iraq – or the endless panoply of wars throughout the Middle East and North America – if 9/11 had actually been in investigated.

(Even the 9/11 Commission itself admits that there was criminal obstruction of justice and a whitewash of the investigation. See this, this, this, this, and this. As such, there has never been a real investigation.)

The Police State Was Caused by the Failure to Investigate 9/11

The police state started in 2001.

Specifically, on 9/11, Vice President Dick Cheney initiated Continuity of Government Plans that ended America’s constitutional form of government (at least for some undetermined period of time.)

On that same day, a national state of emergency was declared … and that state of emergency has continuously been in effect up to today.

It is beyond dispute that 9/11 was entirely foreseeable, but – due to the extreme negligence and incompetence or lack of caring of the Bush administration (remember, I’m not getting into any other theories in this post) it wasn’t stopped.  Even the chair of the 9/11 Commission said that the attack was preventable.

If there had been a real 9/11 investigation, the Bush administration’s extreme negligence would have come to light.   And Americans would have learned that terrorism can largely be prevented if the military and intelligence officers are simply allowed to do their job.

As just one example, Dick Cheney was in charge of all counter-terrorism exercises, activities and responses on 9/11. See this Department of State announcement; this CNN article; and this essay.

The genius Mr. Cheney apparently scheduled 5 war games for the morning of 9/11. Specifically, on the very morning of September 11th, five war games and terror drills were being conducted by several U.S. defense agencies, purportedly including one “live fly” exercise using real planes. Then-Acting Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B. Myers, admitted to 4 of the war games in congressional testimony — see transcript here or video here (6 minutes and 12 seconds into the video.

False radar blips were inserted onto air traffic control screens as part of the war game exercises, which may have confused the heck out of the people participating in those exercises (see this December 9, 2001 Toronto Star article; pay-per-view; reprinted here).  Way to let that one slip through, Mr. in-charge-of-all-war-games.

The military – under the Vice President’s command that day – didn’t scramble enough fighter jets, and then scrambled jets far over the Atlantic Ocean, in what Senator Mark Dayton called:

The most gross incompetence and dereliction of responsibility and negligence that I’ve ever, under those extreme circumstances, witnessed in the public sector.

And the knucklehead personally watched flight 77 for many miles, but – according to Secretary of Transportation Norm Minetta – stopped it from being shot down before it hit the Pentagon (and see this).

Americans would have learned through any real 9/11 investigation that Cheney’s negligence and mucking around in what should have been the generals’ jobs was partly responsible for allowing 9/11 to happen.

In other words, a real 9/11 investigation would have shown Americans that 9/11 should of, could of, and would have been stopped – and that America can protect itself against future terrorist attacks – simply by playing goalie well in our country.

And Americans – instead of being scared into immobility – would have been mad at our government for dropping the ball. And we would have demanded accountability and effective service from our elected officials.  (Indeed, experts have repeatedly demonstrated that fear of terror makes people stupid … and makes them willing to accept a loss of liberty and other abuses they would never otherwise accept.)

The Road Not Taken

Instead, of course, Americans were led to believe that Al Qaeda was going to get us unless we took the fight to the Middle East and North Africa.  The administration pretended that Saddam Hussein had a hand in 9/11 – one of the main justifications for that war.

Had a real 9/11 investigation been conducted before we launched the Iraq war, it would have taken away one of the two main rationales for that war. (The FBI was also instructed to blame the anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda, and high-level government officials pointed towards Iraq as the source of the anthrax, even though there was absolutely no basis for those claims. But that’s another story.)

Dan Rather was right when he wrote last week:

We have been so afraid; so hell bent on destroying enemies … both foreign and domestic … we have hurt ourselves and our democracy.

Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser also told the Senate in 2007 that the war on terror is so overblown that it is “a mythical historical narrative”.

And as I noted in 2008:

Former deputy national intelligence officer for transnational threats, a 23-year senior CIA analyst, who “drafted or was involved in many of the government’s most senior assessments of the threats facing our country [and who] devoted years to understanding and combating the jihadist threat”, writes today in the Washington Post that the neocons have whipped us into an irrational fear of the terrorism. In reality, “Osama bin Laden and his disciples are small men and secondary threats whose shadows are made large by our fears” and our leaders.

This is no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention. The BBC produced a documentary called The Power of Nightmares in 2005 that showed that politicians were greatly exaggerating the terrorist threat for political ends.

And unfortunately, many in government have intentionally whipped up fear in the American public for their own political purposes. For example, FBI agents and CIA intelligence officials, constitutional law expert professor Jonathan Turley, Time Magazine, Keith Olbermann and the Washington Post have all said that U.S. government officials “were trying to create an atmosphere of fear in which the American people would give them more power”.

And former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge admits that he was pressured to raise terror alerts to help Bush win reelection. Fear sells.

And because 9/11 was never really investigated, the government instead of doing the things which could actually make us safer – are doing things which increase the risk of terrorism.

As such, the threats from terrorism form even more of a “justification” for a suspension of our Constitutional rights.

The failure to investigate 9/11 has bankrupted America financially and morally, and has allowed us to stand idly by while our liberty has been destroyed.

    link is broken, and I’m interested to know what Dept of State had to say,
    seems like they may have dispensed with the “usinfo” part of the name altogether, but removing it and/or replacing it with www doesn’t work, neither does changing htm to html in various permutations.
    searching a1050878 didn’t turn up anything on, and I didn’t get anything useful in the first page of google hits

    reminds me of a time I put “vecheka” into google and the first thing that came up was and the page was blank! a week later it was gone entirely…
    If Dzerzhinsky’s shade is out there wreaking havoc on the net, I don’t need to know. As for the US state dept, they can cough up their previously posted statement, thanks very much.

    9/11 inside job. It’s not coincidence that we’ve stumbled into the middle east.

    • Debra Dosch

      am sick of people who dont even research it (tons of evidence)…seriously what will it take?

  • Your assertion that tax-cuts cause debt is ludicrous. Runaway spending backed by borrowing digital monies printed out of thin air causes debt. Tax cuts force runaway governments to face reality.

    • It should be easy to show that ‘ecliptic’ is wrong … totally wrong … but it is not because government accounting and financial reporting is way more confusing that it ought to be. I like to see two sides of financial flows and the balance of assets and liabilities. I like to see what is expense, what is investment and what is repayment of debt, I like to see inflows coming from taxes and inflows coming from borrowing.

      Summarizing all these different things into a single graph opens up many questions … Bush tax cuts is a big thing, and the money not raised substantial. Did these tax cuts promote economic activity … in my view not very much.

      Military spending is huge and has grown substantially over the years.

      TARP and Recovery spending by government is very confusing … and maybe dwarfed by the activities of the Federal Reserve which is now becoming visible, but not part of the government accounts.

      Frankly … nobody seems to have much of a clue where money comes from and where it goes but it is clear that money is far too influential in US society, business and politics

      • Josh

        “It should be easy to show that ‘ecliptic’ is wrong … totally wrong.”

        Uh huh. And then you don’t show it.

        Tax cuts help grow the economy, George. When are you going to get a grasp of basic economics? You’ve advocated Austrian economics before here, no? Yet you say this.

        Imagine if you had a 100% tax rate. The government would control the entire economy, and that wouldn’t be good no?

        Look at this very simple study. Of the 100 largest cities, it was found that the 10 with the lowest tax burden had increased population growth, real income grow, and job growth about 2x as fast as the 10 cities with the highest tax burden. Now don’t you think lowering taxes is good for the economy?

        Stop reading all these leftist things like the Huffington Post, and start reading things like Reason. Your economic foundation is lacking.

        • YankeeFrank

          “Reason” is a libertard nightmare of idiocy. And it is obvious that if you keep all other parts of a budget the same, that cutting taxes will increase debt. If that is not obvious to you, then you do not understand basic math. The silly lie that tax cuts “pay for themselves” is a clear joke — just look at the Bush tax cuts in 2002 and 2003 — by the time Bush left office in ’08 the federal debt had doubled. If tax cuts pay for themselves why did the debt explode in that period? And please don’t say that its because Bush increased spending, because if he did, shouldn’t the tax cuts have mitigated that spending by “paying for themselves”? According to the “tax cuts pay for themselves” meme we should’ve seen an increase in tax receipts after the Bush tax cuts took effect. Is that what we found? No. In fact the deficits exploded because, whocouldanode, all those tax cuts reduced the government’s income, causing a deficit. Theoretically, tax cuts could partially pay for themselves if they spur growth. In a kleptocratic and unhealthy economy like ours, where the guts of our manufacturing sector have been hollowed out, and the amount of interest paid to the vampiric financial sector grows daily, its a pipe dream to expect real growth merely from tax cuts. In fact, the rich who received the vast majority of the Bush tax cuts didn’t reinvest the money in productive enterprise — they threw it into the casino known as Wall Street and helped cause the housing bubble and commodities bubbles, which became a huge tax on the American people as the housing bubble burst and gasoline rose to over $4 per gallon. The US economy did the best it ever will do when the top marginal tax rate on income was over 70% back in the 50s. That is because such a high tax rate encouraged businesses to reinvest profits rather than take them as income (thereby avoiding that 70% tax hit). The reinvestment allowed for growth in the form of more and higher paying jobs and increased demand for goods and services in a virtuous cycle. As soon as Reagan cut the top income tax rates to 39% business owners began taking profits instead of reinvesting and expanding, took those profits to Wall Street to find high returns, began moving manufacturing to cheap labor countries in search of those higher yields, and our current collapse became inevitable. Stop displaying your ignorance and learn the truth if you value a future for your children.

  • JON

    Why would they investigate themselves? This article is so ridiculous. 911 was what they needed in order to bankrupt America and establish a New World Order. This article is like writing about a 5 year old telling the parents to investigate who stole the cookie from the cookie jar.

    • Bravo

      Exactly. Especially when the 5 year old knows that the parents are the one who stole the cookies.

  • Of course the endless wars have bankrupted American and destroyed our constitutional system. Of course, this came about because of a failure to investigate 9/11. But WHY did we fail to thoroughly investigate 9/11? Because of lily-livered leftists like you, Washington, who fail to come to terms with the possibility of 9/11 being an inside job. I say that as a journalist who was working for KPFA News during that time and did try to investigate. My colleague Bonnie Faulkner and I ran into tremendous resistance from within KPFA and the left community in general. We and others who tried to look at this with the possibility that the highest treason was committed against the United States were marginalized and ostracized.

    But if 9/11 was not an inside job, how was it that the Pentagon was hit? This is the nerve center of the world’s most powerful military, built during the early 50’s to withstand an invasion from the Soviet Union. Yet the on-premises Surface to Air Missles were never fired, no military craft were launched to intercept the oncoming threat per Standard Operating Procedure for one of the most heavily restricted air spaces on the planet. Negligence is not the answer as it is difficult to imagine any administration being negligent to such a degree on one day only. Even the idea that people thought it was a drill makes no sense as a drill should include the intercept SOP.

    And how do you explain a bill as large as the Patriot Act being ready for a vote in 6 weeks if it was drafted ab initio after 9/11? I could go on, but I won’t.

    The failure to investigate 9/11 and all the ensuing human, political and economic disaster is summed up by the famous words of Jack Nicolson in A Few Good Men: “You Can’t Handle the Truth.”

    • Rt

      Well said

    • Benjamin “Reticuli” Goulart

      1) Flying airplanes is easier than driving a car in a city. Landing, formal comms, and doing so safely & in a repeatable manner are the hard parts. Navigating is a little more difficult, but GPS systems and waypoints are pretty easily learned on airliner nav systems. The hijackers took flight training and focused on navigating and flying. Not so much on the landings, though they became somewhat competent at that, too. While it might take a rocket scientist to build an airplane, it doesn’t take one to fly them… though interestingly a few were engineers.

      2) Flying below radar coverage is a better way to avoid radar detection and interception than stealth… assuming you can get away with it in combat. Daytime is bad, small arms fire, FLIR detection at night, many short range radar early warning stations around every hill, etc… would all make that difficult and then stealth becomes necessary. In fact, the Russians invented stealth theory. They just trained their attack pilots to fly low, instead. It’s cheaper. While the USA had SAM installations at some key sites during the height of the Cold War, I’m pretty sure the Pentagon didn’t have anything like that on 9/11. They rely on NORAD and the Air Guard to protect US airspace. And as usual, both of those and the surrounding military commands were involved in exercises, a constant fixture in the USA. How well do exercises actually prepare us for real attacks and do they hinder our ability to deal with real military attacks with them constantly being run? Those are good questions and ones that have been evaluated since 9/11. By the way, the military was running nuclear war exercises with Russia, too.

      3) Any “insider” connection between the 9/11 conspirators/hijackers was probably through individuals connected to the Saudis, Pakistani intelligence, and possibly one of the other financers, Yassin al-Qadi, who was the owner of a company supplying computers to US government agencies. There’s some question as to how much information he could have had from that gig. The rest of 9/11’s failings was the bureaucracy, turf wars, classification procedures, and general incompetence. Arguably the Dept of Homeland Security was not necessary, but considering the CIA wasn’t quite doing its job effectively in centralizing and disseminating intelligence analysis (more other agency’s fault than their own), it has helped to fix some of that. Of course, the sheer amount of overlap, excess, cost-overruns, unaccountability, and privatization of intelligence in the USA is very disturbing in the aftermath. We have gone way overboard. Essentially the 9/11 conspirators got very lucky and we have become very afraid.

  • Ecliptic Is Right

    absolutely right on target, Ecliptic. borrowing fiat money created out of someone’s arse hole is what the problem is. McFadden gave a floor speech a number of years after the disgusting TREASON of the creation of the FED, in the early 1930’s about this happy horse shit, but nobody heeded the warning.


    that’s the root cause of all of this. This one khazarian fake zioturd family (BAUER) is responsible for all of the death and destruction since they floated out of a Frankfurt Am Mein ghetto toilet in 1743 and began to whore monger and loan shark their way into DEBT USURY BARRONS.

  • 9-11? I actually think it was the failure to properly investigate JFK’s and RFK’s assassination that bankrupted the US, economically and esp. morally:

    1. LBJ got rid of the “US Notes” and reinstituted the Fed Reserve Note…a majot reason for economic bankruptcy!
    2. LBJ supposedly had a hand in JFK’s murder.
    3. Nixon and the “plumbers” etc (and Connoly) also had a hand in it…a proper investigation would have brought all of them to trial and jail (maybe)
    4. Americans would be more astute in seeing the “patsy” angle in RFKs and ultimately the 9-11 events
    5. The Vietnam War would have ended sooner (and maybe a victory for the US, too)
    6. There has not been a decent (reasonably law-abiding) President since JFK.
    7. 9-11 might have happened anyway, but the utter decline and destruction of the US would only be happening now, not a continuous process since 1964…

  • Canadian newspapers carried stories recently about the eviction of land owners in an area known as La Manzanilla, located on beautiful Tenacatita Bay, between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo on the west coast of Mexico.

    • Oscar Pena

      I was interested in the point you were going to make. Why were the land owners evicted?

  • Kellia, if you read this blog regularly you would understand 9/11 is a prevalent theme and that George takes The opinion that it was an inside job. Please correct me if i am wrong. Lily livered leftists cant deal with 911 truth, but this blog fundamentally recognizes 9/11 as an inside job. It wouldn’t be a topic if such weren’t the case. In addition to this, I might add the disclaimer at the top of the article might be causing your confusion. Ever cross your mind that this is a tactic designed so as to not scare off the lily livers so that they might read the article and be educated? Just a thought.

  • C. Charles

    Google or Youtube “War by Deception” – a documentary done by Ryan Dawson… the best I’ve seen so far on 9/11.


  • I agree with your premise, analysis, and conclusions. One facet I would comment on, which we also evidently agree on, is the oil wars.

    Not that that changes the discussion in this post, but it sheds some light on the thinking of those who are doing what is being complained of.

    They see themselves as saviors of America, not as indiscriminate power grabbers, because they are using the military to take over nations that have supplies of oil. Their “religion” is that they are doing it for the benefit of America.

    To do all this, they must lie about it to the American people, generate the fears and bullshit you mention, because the public would have them go down a very different path.

    It is an insanity born of the mistakes the new and growing industrial civilization made long ago, with America at the helm, which bound industrial civilization to oil addiction, so what you chronicle here are the ongoing ramifications of that addiction.

  • Fred

    I agree with DL the killing of JFK in broad daylight and the subsequent cover up by the govt. AND THE MEDIA goes a long way in explaining the ills we have today. One point he is in error on, there was not any “Vietnam war” during JFK’s 1000 days in office but that promptly escalated under LBJ. In the first week in office LBJ rescinded an EO to bring home military advisors and promptly doubled them as well. The media never told us that Jack Ruby’s real name was Jacob Rubenstein. They never reported that the FBI gave LHO a paraffin test (to find traces of gun powder) upon his arrest and all results came back negative. They did however lead the charge in convicting LHO in the court of public opinion guilty of the murder, kind of in the same way OBL was convicted for the 911 plot. I wonder if the same group of people controlled the media back then as now? NAHHHHH that is kooky talk. O_o

  • joe campbell

    USA has have a fiat money system, you have been bankrupt since the 1968 when silver certificates stopped being redeemable. That you are technically more bankrupt now is pretty meaningless. The only relevance of money is its exchange to commodities and had Iraq not been invaded you would likely be living in the dark right now, enjoying your electricity for money exchange?

    The only issue with 911 that is a complete failure was the lack of recommendations arising from the tragedy. The following are my suggested recommendations, or what i think should have been learned to respected the lives lost.

    1. planes that deviate from the flight path or put the plane into imminent harm should lose pilot control and be landed safely by a remote pilot.
    2. insurance fraud should be enforced. insuring a building with negative value for 2 billions dollars is fraud. that the policy was so cheap is also fraud.
    3. You should probably follow the design when making your building, when it asks for fire retardant asbestos maybe it should be installed. Had the building been constructed properly lives would have been saved.
    4. Exiting, exiting in large buildings with no clear means of egress needs working CCTVs and pa systems, and preferably a electronically backed up system that indicated which series of stairs to exit by.
    5. guy wires, a top repel would imo be realistic for fire escape and tourism/adventure.
    6. guns on planes, america is the land of guns, if guns were allowed in airports the planes would not have been hijacked and billions would be saved on defense.
    7. bullet proof cockpits with exterior exits and remote control capabilities. If you are concerned of hacking then i guess you should be concerned with them being controlled by computers remotely as they currently are anyways for fuel savings.
    8. the “auto pilot”, under no circumstance should the autopilot allow the plane to crash, this should be its design. that is not the current case. Autopilots are not field crashed or field tested. They should be. The autopilot should be rated by hours of no crashes with so many sensor failures.

    well thats enough, i could easily make more. I would like to learn from 911 and improve things, you like most people just want to blame someone.

I higly reccomend that you watch the “live” news broadcast from that day one more time. It is just silly: – September Clues video might help you with some clues, etc.

  • carroll price

    It is obvious from all available evidence from eye witnesses, 1st responders, and video footage that a “terrorist attack” did not occur on 9/11. It is also obvious why a real investigation has never occurred because a large number of individuals whose responsibilty it would have been to conduct the investigation were directly involved in planning and carrying out the attack. While the individuals who were not directly involved (including the Obama administration) have provided cover for the ones who were.

  • lili

    American delusional behaviors are interesting to watch. If someone robbed an American citizen’s house there would be complete chaos. There would be even more extreme chaos it if the person is wealthy or famous. They’d want investigations until everything was absolutely handled, sorted, reimbursed, and the robber would go to jail or pay restitution.

    In America right now, all the government has to say is:
    “Shut up. This doesn’t involve you. We’ll handle it” and Americans DO IT. People are afraid of dying at the hands of corrupt cops and military so they cower.

    Our leaders failed on every single level during 9/11. NORAD was MIA and has yet to explain why they stood down.

    Americans do not understand the horrible nature of slavery-but they are about to. Citizens think they can hide out,escape, or stockpile against an insane government that will pay (with your tax dollars) to get any weapon or any government *Israel* to help them suppress “agitators” (you).

    America is in trouble. People will know it by January when the government no longer has to pretend to care after the income-generating holiday season is over. They’re going to want their taxes by April 2012-and you’d all be better be willing to pay whatever amount they create for whatever reasons.

    It’s good to be free right?

    Flight 93 (the plane that was forced down and crashed in Shanksville Pennsylvania field) was suppose to hit WTC building # 7. The flight path shown on wikpedia shows the flight 93 heading toward Manhattan , NOT Washington like we were told .

  • Fred

    What Joe Campbell also said was “Had the building been constructed properly lives would have been saved.” Well Joe all 3 buildings were constructed properly but what you failed to realize when you watched them fall was this. Towers 1 & 2 both fell at the acceleration due to gravity through the path of greatest resistance. Or in lay terms if you dropped an object from the top of the building it would take about 10 seconds for it to hit the ground in an unimpeded free fall from that height, the buildings “fell through themselves” in almost exactly the same time period. Which means all the structure that was undamaged below the impact point somehow magically turned into “free air” as they fell. Building 7 (yes it magically fell as well that day) was located a block over from the towers yet some how managed to catch fire and Larry Silverstein and some “others” decided to pull the building. How did the building catch fire? Did the fleeing office workers throw cigarettes in waste cans or neglect to turn off the coffee makers before they left? I have many questions but I have never seen anyone broach this one. Please correct me if I am wrong. Insurance companies are notoriously efficient at not paying a claim if it is suspected to be fraudulent. I believe that AIG had insured the complex with some other carriers as well and they payed out 7 billion in claims to Larry and the boys, and no one batted an eyelash over it other than the 2 claims vs one claim lawsuit. Didn’t AIG get some kind of Fed bailout later on as well? Moslems my ass……….. 0_o

    As long as the present regime remains in power, a 9/11 investigation is not going to happen because criminals do not investigate their own crimes. 9/11 was, by far the most horrendous false flag attack, but attacks of a similar nature have occurred since the early 1900s and before. For instance, there is ample evidence to show that the border dispute (incursion) leading to the US invasion of Mexican in 1845 was a staged event to incite a war that would result in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and California becoming part of the American empire.

  • Held-down

    Great article ,most Americans agree. Massive cover up leading to middle east wars. JFK was our last chance,to regain freedom. Our only hope is for revolution.

  • A lot of the failure to investigate has been the failing of the mainstream for-profit corporate press.

    This blog and others are part of the Americana that makes us great, citizen journalism, which is protected by the First Amendment.

    But it is under attack, so keep up the good work.
