Action Plan: Citizens Counter-Coup
March 15, 2006
Saturday, March 11th marked 4 years and 6 months since 9/11/01. We at 911truth.org appeal to all concerned citizens to participate in the monthly action known as Citizens Counter-Coup to raise a groundswell demanding truth and justice for 9/11. First, an overview of recent events which highlight the necessity for this campaign.
There is much to report in the last month. It has been revealed by NSA whistleblower Russell Tice that there are NSA spying programs that are even worse than what has been disclosed. This information is so top secret he can’t even tell Congress.
It has been revealed that the FBI’s reason for not releasing tapes of Flight 77 striking the Pentagon is because it will affect the Moussaui case, even though he has already pled guilty. Is there any logic here?
The Bush Administration and a secretive agency which authorizes business transactions with foreign countries wants to allow UAE to run several main U.S. ports. Even Republican leaders in Congress are in disbelief. It’s interesting that a sheik from the United Arab Emirates contributed at least $1 million to the Bush Library Foundation, which established the George Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University in College Station (AP). Could this deal be a quid pro quo? Forget that UAE was a financial base for several of the alleged hijackers, and a transfer point for shipments of smuggled nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Libya by a rogue Pakistani scientist.
The Iraq War rages on with with over 2300 American soldiers dead and 16,635 wounded according to DOD. The destruction of a Shia mosque has increased the potential for all out civil war. Experts are saying the bombing could only have been done by demolition specialists which makes one wonder if there are sinister forces attempting to inflame tensions and bring about civil war to further weaken the country, Balkanize it into smaller ethnic regions, and give cause for extending the U.S. occupation. There is disturbing news of over a thousand detainees in Iraq still being tortured.
Halliburton has been awarded another contract, this time for building detention camps for an influx of illegal aliens storming our borders, so we’re told. There is ample reason to question whether these camps could be for American dissidents. The problem is that until such time as these camps are put into use, the public doesn’t know their real purpose.
Congress has renewed the PATRIOT Act which gives even more intrusive powers to an imperial administration engaged in thousands of warrantless wiretaps on a public that has been shell shocked by the media terror hoax. We have a nuclear stand-off with Iran looming on the immediate horizon. So the aftermath of 9/11 in which the neocon agenda has free reign and “wars that will not end in our lifetime” fills our reality.
On the plus side, the Feb. 22nd issue of the Village Voice in New York featured a cover story titled “The ABCs of 9/11”. While the article may have missed some important areas, on balance it included many of the compelling questions that must be raised about 9/11. This resulted in great visibility and can be considered a mini-breakthrough in media coverage. Also, George Noory’s Coast-to-Coast radio show which has 5 million listeners hosted David Ray Griffin, Jim Fetzer and Morgan Reynolds. On the downside, the media has fallen far short of adequately covering the Able Danger hearings and has systematically engaged in lies of omission in covering the Zacarias Moussaoui trial. Also, at a public forum hosted by Harper’s Magazine and broadcast on C-SPAN 2 discussing “Is There A Cause For Impeachment”, the topic of 9/11 was not addressed by the panelists until a few attendees included the issue during Q&A. This omission is incredible. Lewis Lapham, a monthly writer and editor for the magazine, actually said he hasn’t seen credible evidence on government complicity for 9/11! Why not write him with a few pointers at firstname.lastname@example.org (this is his personal assistant) or write the magazine at email@example.com.
This is merely a glimpse of what makes up current reality. Does anyone see the need for action? Come be part of a campaign that has the potential to grow exponentially, create mass awareness and action? Together we can build a wider movement to distribute the work that must be done. This is what Citizens Counter-Coup is designed to do.
We have to work now more than ever to build our base — which can become substantial in a matter of months if we focus. Now we have the tool that can make the difference.
Even though the government has been unresponsive in the past and the media has been an obstruction, we need to realize that there is a majority of people in high levels of public service who are aware of the crisis we’re in and are just waiting for the American public to get engaged and fulfill their obligation to lead the leaders. They need us to rise up. Either we set the agenda or the military/industrial/intelligence complex will continue to set it for us. The choice is clear.
