Closure as a community requires a truly independent investigation of the executive acts which led to the catastrophe of the intelligence failure prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. A small and dwindling minority of voices has been raised in favor of that crying need for the exposure of truth.
And, as I was saying in the remarks I made yesterday, to other, non-brainwashed eyes, it seems a matter of common moral principles that the commission of widespread fraud and deceptive practices calls for an investigation and a punishment of the responsible parties.

We continue sweeping our historical events under the rug of denial. Mistakes were made: do not ask who made them. “We” don’t want to know. Which translated, is, those who committed the war crimes, the crimes of lack of due diligence, the crimes of fraud and swindling, don’t want us to know, and we aren’t used to demanding to know.
The news media is owned by the parties who might be threatened by truthful inquiry. So the question is passed over, in favor of how much the haircuts or the high-heeled shoes of the politicians cost.
