To end the War on Terror requires a complete self-evaluation all around. The ‘conspiracy theory’ charge against those who tried to expose the covert false flag operation of the US (and probably Zionist operatives) has been a great injustice to those critics who have struggled for two decades to set the record straight. Granting that the issue is a difficult one to research, the fact remains that even a small amount of study of the emerging literature makes it clear that in some fashion covert operatives staged a patsy dark op in order to initiate the War on Terror. The first order of business must be to see that the War on Terror is a monumental crime against Islamic societies.
The left has somehow been fooled here and has ended in indirect complicity with the whole grotesque and nightmarish operation.
The issue then is that the War on Terror, whatever the facts and terrorism in the Islamic world, is a massive deception.
The left has been turned into a laughing stock here in one of the most alarming cases of social engineering, propaganda and brainwashing in the history of the modern state.
As transnational feminists united against militarism and war, we call for a new U.S. foreign policy that recognizes interdependence and prioritizes connection and cooperation, reparations for historic and systemic harms, valuing people and the planet over profit, and protecting everyone, especially those made most vulnerable.
Consider the case of Hikmatullah Shadman, who was just a teenager when American Special Forces rolled into Kandahar on the heels of Sept. 11. They hired him as an interpreter, paying him up to $1,500 a month — 20 times the salary of a local police officer, according to a profile of him in The New Yorker. By his late 20s, he owned a trucking company that supplied U.S. military bases, earning him more than $160 million.
We can't afford to pretend that the War on Terror never happened. We must learn from the horrifying consequences of US war & begin down a path towards peace.

Response to a marxmail post.
The left is almost pathetically misinformed here. How did this happen?
The popular mechanics article is almost laughable in retrospect.
Surely 9/11 was one of the most gross crimes of American imperialism.
Its false flag op staged the propaganda for the War on Terror.

The Popular Mechanics article on 9/11 has been a standing joke among 9/11 researchers for over a decade.
The literature here is extensive:

Popular Mechanics refutes the “controlled demolition” theory:
Politically, the effect of the spread of this theory was to distract attention away from the actual crimes of US imperialism. People spent their time debating the truth or falsehood of the “controlled demolition” theory, instead of looking at the history of US intervention in Afghanistan and around the world.
Such intervention included the US alliance with Osama bin Laden against the Soviet Union and the PDPA government. But it also included invasions and US-backed military coups in many parts of the world, such as the coup attempt in Venezuela in April 2002.
We could have had a cooler planet, universal health care, and an end to the coronavirus pandemic — if we’d chosen life over death.
Reading this remarkable article, at Counterpunch no less, is a surprise indeed. For decades critics of the 9/11 have been crying in the wilderness as to the real history of what was clearly a kind of false flag operation, by some part of the American state, and now increasingly seen as in complicity with Israel. The many critics have suffered a kind of cancel culture effect and been marginalized even on the left. The issue of 9/11 has had any number of different though related interpretations and this version here, to be commended for a kind of breakout account in the reign of silence, is open to the objection that the 9/11 false flag op was planned long in advance and that the supposed Saudi source was of a set of patsies set up from the start. This aspect is murky and many are reluctant to discuss the issue of Israel in any way. To cite a CIA source in any form implies that in a org of brazen liars, one could tell the truth. But this interpretation should be taken seriously under examination. Perhaps the issue is finally seen aright. The rest of the material is part of the body of evidence, e.g. the discovery of nanothermite and the evidence of staged demolition, is entirely to the point in the almost monstrous episode of the construction of the war on terror by the covert sectors of the US (and Israel). We have chastised Counterpunch many times on the grounds of their refusal to consider the issue, but finally it is moving into the open.
It is very hard and takes time for the public, left or not, to come to any sense of this dark moment in American history. But sooner or later the reckoning in public was inevitable. There is an extensive literature here and the public realization of the truth is a grim moment for the public view/reputation of the American democratic legacy, now seen to have been compromised long ago and its darker side coming to the fore so grimly on 9/11. We have a huge backlist of posts on 9/11. https://redfortyeight.com/?s=9%2F11+
What is the truth about the 9/11 attacks on New York? According to the testimony given by CIA insider Susan Lindauer, the CIA knew about the planned attacks on the World Trade Center as early as April, 2001. According to Lindauer, it was realized that airplanes striking the buildings would not cause their collapse, and so the disaster was deliberately made worse than it otherwise would have been by US government agents who planted explosives. Other evidence supports Lindauer’s testimony. Numerous people in New York saved samples of the dust produced by the collapse of the WTC buildings, and chemical analysis of the dust showed the presence of nanothermite, a powerful heat-producing compound which seems to have been used to melt the steel framework of the strongly constructed skyscrapers. Videos of the collapse of the buildings, especially Building 7, show them falling freely, in the manner of controlled demolition. The videos also show molten steel pouring out of the buildings.
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
Despite its claims to be building democracy in Afghanistan, the US’s War on Terror pushed the country deeper into chaos. The United States should be held fully responsible for this failure by the rest of the world.
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw.
