Jason Leopold | Iraq and 9/11: The Truth Is Out
Jason Leopold writes, "9/11 gave the Bush administration the excuse they needed
to execute a long-planned military strike against Iraq. President Bush and his
cabinet duped Congress and the American people into believing the country had
ties to al-Qaeda, and helped the terrorist organization plan the attacks on the
World Trade Center and the Pentagon five years ago."

birth to other fears: the risks of outrages to personal freedom and the fear of
violence coming from those same states or empires that we had charged with
protecting us," a prophecy Jean-Pierre Stroobants suggests has come true.

Robert Scheer | Gaping Holes in the 9/11 Narrative
Robert Scheer writes, "What we still don't know about 9/11 could kill us ...

disastrous imperial adventure in Iraq."

David Swanson | Dedicating September 11th to Bush
David Swanson, writing from Camp Democracy: "Only we, the people of the United

nightmare. The crimes of September 11th had nothing to do with Iraq.... The
evidence is before us, and it is our unavoidable responsibility to take it up
and act on it."
