Paul Krugman's blog, for today, the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 2001 terror attacks on NY city and Washington, DC, mark the period of a wholesale WAR LUST in American politics and discourse, a HIJACKING of the national direction and leadership that is difficult to grasp the depth and breadth of, much less comment on in a comprehensive and compelling manner.
We will let Mr. Krugman's words speak as a PRELUDE to our dicussion on the TREASON and TREACHERY elements,* from WITHIN the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT and presidential offices, that made the 9-11 terror attacks "a success" that led to the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans 10 years ago today. (* A blog post we will delete, and repost after this one.)
We will, however, "bite the hand" that we agree with on this particular subject, to point out that Mr. Krugman has alot to be ashamed of as well: HE can NOT EXPLAIN to his readers JUST HOW MANY TRILLIONS of American taxpayer obligated dollars have been HANDED OVER to the INSANELY CORRUPT and treacherous banksters over the past 3 years; because for Krugman to do so would be biting the hand that fed and nurtured him in his "economics" career - his fellow Ivy League economists, the atrocious Nobel Prize committee, the Wall Street bankers who own New York City (along with the Ivy League, and the rest of America and world), and especially the TREASONOUS Sulzberger New York Slimes, which literally helped make a CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS over the "monica lewinsky" affair - and then gave George W. Bush a FREE PASS for having a GAY MALE PROSTITUTE SPEND LATE NIGHTS AT THE WHITE HOUSE, week after week after week, despite "Mr. Ganon" (a pseudonym the Secret Service was well aware of) having an UP AND RUNNING gay male prostitute web site at the time he was "visiting" the Bush White House late night after late night after late night.
The Difference? George W. Bush was IN THE POCKET of the treasonous Neo-Con WAR LOBBY, sending thousands of American military men to wage wars to conquer and seize oil in Muslim lands; while, leading up to the impeachment "crisis," President Bill Clinton had been doing a good job of KEEPING AMERICA OUT of wars, and had been PROVIDING FULL EMPLOYMENT for millions of Americans.... the "unwashed masses" that Arthur Sulzberger and his fellow treasonous "israel uber alles" Neo-Con media barons loath and despise.
The Years of Shame
by Paul Krugman, NY Times, Krugman blog
September 11, 2011,
Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?
Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. Te atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
