I experienced 9/11 as a bolt out of the blue.
I was 20 years old at the time, a normie and a sophomore at Auburn University. I was just beginning to develop my political views. I had voted for the first time in the 2000 election for Al Gore. It was only later that I came to understand that 9/11 was the ultimate example of blowback to American imperialism in the Middle East. The event was covered by the “journalists” who ignored the context.
In reality, the CIA had anticipated the attack all summer. They knew it was coming. It was the culmination of a long train of events going back over 20 years into my childhood and adolescence. The Pentagon and the CIA had been meddling in the region for decades. They had literally gestated and created the jihadists who attacked us on 9/11 with the assistance and support of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The attack on the World Trade Center in New York City overshadowed the attack on the Pentagon. The horror and shock of that day and the rage that followed also completely overshadowed why the World Trade Center was targeted in the first place. The targets were all chosen as symbols of American power.
The reason that 9/11 happened and everything that followed in its wake like the Iraq War and ISIS is because of people like Gen. Mark Milley and the “intelligence community” who are committed to ruling the world. They were ones who created the resentments that exploded that day.
