Open Letter to the Nation (12.10.03)

An open letter to Nation Magazine that was sent on 12/10/03.

After reading Robert Jay Lifton’s recent piece (“American Apocalypse”, the Nation, 12/8/03) I have decided not to renew my long-running subscription to the Nation Magazine. In it Lifton continually asserts that the US was attacked on September 11, 2001 by Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Meanwhile, it takes only about fifteen minutes to scientifically confirm that the official story of 9/11/01 could not possibly be true. For example, the cutting charges that helped topple World Trade Center 7 are easily seen in the Naudet brothers’ documentary 911. In addition, both of the Twin towers fell as quickly as they would have in a free fall from gravity. This is impossible. The laws of physics are violated if we accept that the buildings fell as quickly as they would in a free fall while simultaneously pulverizing all of the concrete, discharging material hundreds of feet away from the buildings and leaving heat sources which were detected weeks after the implosions. In addition, neither tower was troubled very much with the enormous amount of friction involved when an upper floor falls on the one immediately below. (For example, if floor 97 collides with floor 96 the friction of the lower floor’s concrete, steel trusses, desks, chairs and people, etc. would slow the collapse down.) Without energy inputs, neither the North nor South towers could have collapsed as quickly they did solely from the potential kinetic energy from gravity that they each had available to them.

The more one examines the events of 9/11/01 the more scientifically impossible and logically implausible they become. Meanwhile, the Bush regime has used 911 to shred the Bill of Rights (via the USA PATRIOT Act), invade two sovereign nations illegally (i.e., Afghanistan and Iraq), install a concentration camp (i.e., Guantanamo Bay) and to lay innumerable foundations of a domestic police state. With neoconservatives now writing articles in mainstream publications which suggest that the US will be soon be “attacked” as it was on 9/11/01, and that when it happens Bush will declare martial law, the Nation’s frequent support for the Empire’s propaganda on 911 is inconsistent with my progressive ideals.
