During a discussion with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last Friday,
Trilateral Commission co-founder and top Obama advisor Zbigniew
Brzezinski spoke of those who question the official version
of events on 9/11 in the same context as those who deny the
The two were analyzing Barack Obama's Cairo speech,
and in particular, his tacit warning regarding 9/11 Truth.
During the speech Obama said “I am aware
that some question or justify the events of 9/11," suggesting
that anyone who asks questions about the attacks also somehow
"But let us be clear: al Qaeda killed nearly
3,000 people on that day ...These are not opinions to be debated,
these are facts to be dealt with.” Obama asserted.
"He took time to debunk both 9/11 conspiracists
and deniers of the holocaust," Maddow said to Brzezinski,
"...is there a reason to believe that he thinks those issues
are holding back political progress, those specific conspiracies
and misconceptions of our modern political history are part
of the problem in terms of moving forward?" she asked,
wearing what can only be described as a painfully rehearsed
puppy dog face of false concern.
"There's no doubt over recent years, both
many Americans viewed the world in a very very skewed fashion,"
Brzezinski replied, "and many outside of America, had a
totally conspiratorial view of America, including even the idea
that 9/11 was somehow or other a put up job and really wasn't
done by Osama Bin Laden and others, so I think president Obama
is breaking through a whole mythology that has paralysed American
dealings with the world."
Watch the video of the exchange:
The Orwellian doublespeak on display here is astounding,
given that almost in the same breath Brzezinski and Maddow allude
to the fact that in the same speech Obama also admitted that
the U.S., via the CIA, played a role in the overthrow
of a democratically elected Iranian government in 1953,
a fact that the criminal intelligence apparatus then attempted
to bury and keep secret for decades.
How on earth do the two expect to get away with
denouncing the American people as "skewed" for not
swallowing the official government line on 9/11 when said government
has been engaged in such criminal actions for generations?
Indeed, Brzezinski himself has even previously
warned of false flag attacks being used to kick
start wars, yet here he is now comparing such lines of thought
to holocaust denial. The total hypocrisy of the man defies belief.
"It was a gutsy speech... In effect what
he was saying was if we are to go forward, if we are to have
a normal relationship, we cannot re-hash the past... Let's not
exchange accusations" Brzezinski gushed.
"By redefining what America means to the
world, and how America views the world, and how Islam and America
should view each other, I think he has laid the basis for a
much more constructive, much more effective American foreign
policy." Brzezinski said.
Meanwhile, unmanned drones continue to drop more
and more bombs on precision targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan,
pounding innocent civilians into the dust by the scores almost
Former Reagan White House official Paul
Craig Roberts hits the nail on the head in his
latest piece, emphasizing the abject hypocrisy of Obama's words:
Obama said that “the events of 9/11”
and al Qaeda’s responsibility, not America’s desire
for military bases and hegemony, are the reasons America’s
commitment to combating violent extremism in Afghanistan will
not weaken. Will Muslims notice that Obama’s case for
America’s violent extremism in Afghanistan and now Pakistan
Al Qaeda, Obama says, “chose to ruthlessly murder”
nearly 3,000 people on 9/11 “and even now states their
determination to kill on a massive scale.” These deaths
are a mere drop in the buckets of blood that America’s
invasions have brought to the Muslim world. Moreover, the
overwhelming majority of the Muslims America has slaughtered
are civilians, just as are the unarmed Palestinians slaughtered
by the American-equipped Israeli military.
Against al Qaeda, whose “actions are irreconcilable
with the rights of human beings,” Obama invokes the
Koran’s prohibition against killing an innocent. Does
Obama not realize that the stricture applies to the US and
its “coalition of forty-six countries” in spades?

Brzezinski's words, and his desire to see the
exercise of a "constructive" foreign policy, ring
hollow, especially when it is understood that it was the former
National Security Advisor to Carter himself who was responsible
for drawing up the plan to arm and train the Islamic fundamentalist
mujahideen at the end of the 70's and groom Osama bin Laden
as a client of the U.S.
Similar to the infamous PNAC yearning for a "new
Pearl Harbor," Brzezinski concludes that the realization
of such an agenda will only be accomplished with the aid of
"a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat,"
which was helpfully provided by the events of 9/11.
Yet, now we are supposed to shut up and swallow
it as he declares his great concern that the U.S. is "becoming
bogged down militarily" in the middle east.
To do so would require a myopic leap of logic that completely
omits the past history of Brzezinski's rampant warmongering.
Of course, Obama would love to see questions over
9/11 shut down for good, only that way will he be able to carry
out his stated goal of changing
the law for the military commissions at Guantánamo
to clear the way for detainees facing the death penalty to plead
guilty without a full trial.
Those who seek to expose the truth behind the
events of September 11th 2001, and counter the hellish road
toward tyranny that has been paved in the years thereafter,
are not the ones "holding back political progress"
as Maddow so disgustingly suggests.
It is the indentured elitists, such as Brzezinski
himself, who have continued to use the American military industrial
complex as an engine to wage an endless war on the rest of the
world that most certainly shoulder the blame for that.
