Editor, Times-Union:
Whistle blowers Snowden and Manning have exposed the illegal and ongoing domestic spying on us by our government and a war crime by the military in Iraq that was carried out in our name. See (CollateralMurder.com).
Yes, national security is very important to all of us. That is one reason that I enlisted in the Army in 1968 when I still believed and trusted the government of these United States. However, since 9/11, the offensive wars and invasions, occupations, drone bombings and foreign entanglements have created blow back and are endangering our present and future security. The larger issue here is 9/11 itself, who pulled it off and why! One explanation is that the powers that be needed a Pearl Harbor type event to incite public opinion for new wars. The countries to be invaded were those that dared to stray away from the Petrodollar and accept other currencies for their oil. Look out, Iran, you're next. The so=called war on terror is totally bogus.
Will someone please explain to me how the third  World Trade Center Building #7 came down at 5:20 p.m. on 9/11 without an explosive demolition? Watch this You Tube video and awaken (www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEuJimaumW4&feature=player_detailpage#t=540s).
911 was a false flag attack, inside job and a masterpiece criminal operation. It was the greatest story ever sold to the modern world by our government. There are now more than 2,000 professional architects and engineers (www.AE911Truth.org) who are calling for a new investigation with subpoena powers because the three towers were brought down by explosive demolitions, not by the two airplanes. This really does matter. Think about it.
