The Events of September 11, 2001 and the Right to the Truth

by Elias Davidsson

Approximately 20 minutes after the apparent aircraft crash on the South Tower of the World Trade Center, before anyone expected further attacks, President George W. Bush emerged from a school class in Florida where he listened calmly to children read a story about a pet goat, and announced that the United States was under attack. In his TV address he said: 'today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Centre in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. Twenty-four hours later the US Congress declared unanimously:

(a) That the events of the previous day had been 'attacks against' the United States; (b) That terrorists had 'hijacked and destroyed' four civilian aircraft;

(c) That the attacks 'destroyed both towers of the World Trade Center'; and

(d) That the attacks clearly were intended 'to intimidate our Nation and weaken its resolve.

The evidence available to the Congress at that time about the manner in which the crime had been committed was hardly sufficient for the above findings, and did not appear sufficiently reliable to allow the conclusion to be drawn that foreign terrorists had been responsible for the crime.

Mass media published from the first hour horrid details about the events - partly based on leaks from unidentified public and airline officials - and speculative theories about the identities of the perpetrators and their motives. The official account on 9/11 was established by political leaders and the media within less than 48 hours of the attacks. . . .
