911 Loose Change 2nd Edition with extra footage
(Google Video, 1h 21min)

A few days after 9/11, I remember sitting in my PR Campaigns class talking with other students about what may have actually happened and what the media was spinning. Two students called me UnAmerican for questioning my government’s sincerity and another friend later called me a conspiracy theorist claiming that no small (or especially large) group of individuals could pull off a well orchestrated conspiracy without getting caught or thwarted. That may be true…but I’m still waiting for a plausible explanation of what really happened.

To those class members and any else out there who may not agree with my views…Call me a conspiracy theorist, call me irreverent, call me what you want but don’t ever f*cking call me unpatriotic or unAmerican for questioning my government and its motives. I work for my government now and there are obviously arrogrant pricks among the crowd eager to make a name and a buck for themselves…I wouldn’t put anything past these jackals just like I wouldn’t put anything past those even higher up.

I question because I am patriotic. I seek answers by piecing together the non-obvious, non-official reports and news items. History has warned me that official body counts and experts will lie if the lie is deemed a “necessary evil” by individuals and groups more powerful than they are. And who has more power right now than our very own G.W. Bush. The man has blatently stated that he is above the law….how did I let this happen?!

It was unAmerican of me not to vote but I couldn’t support a flawed system. I couldn’t come to terms with the fact that I have to take what I get even though it isn’t perfect. I’m still not in harmony with our flawed voting system but I will at least try this time. I know that the next election is still two years away… but I’m just lubing up.

In the meantime, I have a thesis to finish and miles more research to complete.
