Over the weekend I was reading a story about Dick Cheney. He will soon be the subject of a documentary where he admits that he lied about what happened during the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
In the Showtime documentary, “The World According to Dick Cheney,” the former Vice President and accused war criminal says “I got on the telephone with the president, who was in Florida, and told him not to be at one location where we could both be taken out.” Mr. Cheney kept Bush flying aimlessly in the air on 9/11 while he and his wife left on a helicopter for a secure, undisclosed location. They left Washington in a bleak, scared silence with no one reassuring the nation in those first terrifying hours.
Cheney then recalls “I gave the instructions that we’d authorize our pilots to take it out,” he says, referring to the jet headed to Washington that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. He adds: “After I’d given the order, it was pretty quiet. Everybody had heard it, and it was obviously a significant moment.”
We all know that the events of that day were whitewashed with heroism and possible phone calls from panicked passengers. It was these events that Mr. Cheney and many of his cronies only speculated about a year prior in a private proposal called ‘Project for a New American Century‘ or PNAC.
In the proposal that Cheney co-authored, there was a section entitled “Strengthening America’s Defenses” and it was a blueprint for the police state. It called for the necessity of military spending, the Militarization of space. It called for the toppling of regimes, the offensive stance of our military against Central Asia and the Middle East and the willingness to use nuclear weapons to control the world’s resources.
The problem that faced the authors of this radical plan is that the American people would not stand for this. There is no way Americans would stand for this radical change. Americans knew of the warnings of president Eisenhower and his exhortation to not allow the growth of the military industrial complex.
All that Dick Cheney and his co-planners of police state America needed was a body count.
All that was missing was, what one of the PNAC planners called, an event “like a new Pearl Harbor” to galvanize public support for unlimited military action. Later the planners got what they had written about as planes were hijacked by terrorists. Two met their targets in New York at the World Trade Center and the other hit the Pentagon.
Let us not forget that Dick Cheney and his group of New World planners thought that no matter what happened, change will only come with a body count. According to the mainstream narrative, Dick Cheney and his cast of plotters all got their wish because terrorists just coincidentally decided to hate America enough to attack and allow for the expansion of the military and the rejection of the constitution in favor of a police state in America.
