The issue of 9/11 had been so muddled by left and right both that it is very difficult to step beyond the disinformation on the subject. The question of 9/11 is not hard to figure out: the evidence of a false flag op by the US and probably Israel has never been refuted by so-called critics of conspiracy theories. It is not clear how the left got misled here but the issue of a deep state or covert agency operation is too strong to explain away using the charge of truther, etc…
The days of the left led by Chomsky attacking critics is passing and the stark reality of the deception is resurfacing, the more so as the calamity of Afghanistan (and Iraq) as imperial ventures using the 9/11 operations as propaganda for a war on Terror. The critics of the students of the 9/11 should be considered complicit in the immense carnage of US crimes against humanity.
The attempts to debunk the evidence for controlled demolition is mostly a shouting match by those in denial, starting with Chomsky
Bravo for Spike Lee
HBO needs to fix this before it’s too late.

The idea that the US could spend twenty years and a trillion dollars in Afghanistan, achieve nothing, and then walk away without being held accountable is the signature of death for the whole legacy of its once great experiment. The problem lurks: no revolution is possible: the monster is immortal and the catacomb for centuries more of psycopaths. Really? Something has to give way at some point. The scale of the failure is stupefying, but it could in principle be repaired, in practice…?
The core problem is capitalism, but behind that lies the disease of Machiavellianism, which has taken over human politics, vitiating its hopes for a new kind of society. To utter such a heresy makes the entire political corp of super asssholes cringe at the mere thought their little game beyond good and evil is somehow problematical and might be taken was from them. No chance of that, but… It may well be beyond reform. Born again political virtue is unlikely as species failure goes on and on as in Rome, until the whole monstrosity collapsed. Nietsche has triumphed over Kant, and American Karma now suffers the Bid Lie, and Trump, Avatar of Asssholes, seeds what the politicians all secretly want, fascism.
The fall of Kabul to the Taliban on 15 August 2021 is a major political and ideological defeat for the American Empire. The crowded helicopters carrying US Embassy staff to Kabul airport were startlingly reminiscent of the scenes in Saigon – now Ho Chi Minh City – in April 1975. The speed with which Taliban forces stormed the country was astonishing; their strategic acumen remarkable. A week-long offensive ended triumphantly in Kabul. The 300,000-strong Afghan army crumbled. Many refused to fight.

Media coverage of the Taliban takeover of Kabul would lead most Americans to believe that U.S. involvement in Afghanistan began after 9/11, with the invasion to topple the previous Taliban government. But Afghanistan has been at war continuously for 42 years, and the Pentagon has been involved every step of the way, under both Republican More

One hears the incredible on TV: the war in Afghanistan and 9/11 hijackers???? “…but they weren’t all from Afghanstan….”
The US must be finished. A population that brainwashed can’t function as a democracy…
Twenty years, a trillion dollars, thousands times x dead, Americans almost pathetic./
A trillion for the Milit/Indust/Complex, and counting
“The US has been waging endless war for a generation, wasting trillions of dollars and costing countless lives, and we’re no better off for it.”

How many people have been killed in the post-9/11 war on terror? The question is a contentious one, as there has been no formal accounting for the deadly cost of the initial U.S. interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the secondary conflicts that continue to wreak havoc across the Middle East and the opaque, covert war still expanding across Asia and Africa.But even as the U.S. government evades responsibility for the human cost of its overseas endeavors, some researchers are determined to keep count.
