Is it a coincidence that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is hearing from General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker today on the 6th anniversary of 9-11?
Of course not.
Was it a coincidence that every aspect of national security failed so miserably on the actual 9-11 morning?
The Reverend believes this is a good question to think about on this the 6th anniversary of 9-11.
Of course, others regard questions like this as "conspiracy theories". To these folks, coincidences, no matter how many, how timely, and how uncanny they appear to be....are still only coincidences. Any interpretation of these coincidences that suggests they are not coincidences are simply dismissed, out of hand, as expressions of "Bush hate" or simply a result of being unserious.
In commemoration of 9-11.....
Was it a coincidence that the names and pictures of 19 Arab hijackers were available for the media within 72 hours of the event? How could this have been possible?
Was it really a coincidence that both Towers collapsed in exactly the same way? Despite the fact that they were struck differently and their fires were significantly different in size and intensity?
Was it even just more of a coincidence when World Trade Center 7, though never struck that morning, collapsed in exactly the same fashion as the Twin Towers themselves?
Is it just coincidental that the Pentagon's roof mounted rocket launchers were not manned and/or used that morning? Are these on the roof for the defense of the area or for decoration? Would you think they would be part of emergency protocol or not?
Is it coincidence that the Secret Service did not whisk President Bush out of that Florida elementary school, knowing full well the nation was under attack? Is it even more of a coincidence that when Bush did leave, he took the time to step behind a podium for a few sound bites first? Was there an emergency? Were we under attack? Was it a possibility that Bush could have been in danger?
Was it also coincidence that over the span of time, close to a couple hours in duration, that not one fighter jet could reach any of the hi-jacked planes? Not one?
And finally, for now, is it just all one big coincidence that when the Project for the New American Century(PNAC) neo-conservatives, in 2000, said in an official paper, that attacking middle eastern countries pre-emptively and for imperialistic reasons, starting with Iraq, wouldn't be acceptable to Americans barring, "some catastrophic and catalyzing event....like a new Pearl Harbor."? Is it coincidence, then, that the 9-11 event happened and coincidentally we've invaded and are now occupying Iraq and looking to attack Iran? All just coincidence?
There are many more unanswered questions regarding the morning of 9-11-2001.....but for this the 6th anniversary of the event.....let's simply...
Commemorate the coincidences.
