Some readers may find the author's use of neologisms irritating and/or difficult to follow. However, most are clearly defined with footnotes. One exception is the term "Money Sequencing" which is used many times. Its meaning should be clear enough to anyone versed in the global capitalist financial system - it refers to business/industrial cycles controlled by finance capitalists to the benefit of the system's elite guardians.

This is a detailed analysis of the motives, methodologies, organisations and individuals behind 9-11 from a leading moral philosopher and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Unlike most analyses of these epoch-defining events, the paper does not deal with any of the multitude of well-known contradictions, omissions and anomalies of the official narrative in detail. Rather it uses just a few of them to illustrate an alternative and far more persuasive, narrative.

The point of departure for this alternative narrative is the tried and tested "Cui bono?", followed by "who had both motive and means?" Applying these questions unambiguously to what is known about US/Globalist policy during the planning/lead-up phase and to the available evidence of the attacks themselves, together with what has followed directly from them, makes for a compelling case which, in a nutshell is:

9-11 was the work of a Western Globalising Elite utilising elements of the American Intelligence, Military, Security and Political Establishments (in roughly that order and, at all but their most senior levels, unknowingly) as prime-movers in its planning, execution and on-going cover-up.

The Moral Decoding of 9-11: Beyond the U.S. Criminal State

I was sceptical of the 9-11 event from the first time I saw it on television. It was on every major network within minutes. All the guilty parties were declared before any evidence was shown. The first questions of any criminal investigation were erased. Who had the most compelling motives for the event? Who had the means to turn two central iconic buildings in New York into a pile of steel and a cloud of dust in seconds? [1]

Other questions soon arose in the aftermath. Why was all the evidence at the crime scenes removed or confiscated? Who was behind the continuous false information and non-stop repetition of “foreign/Arab terrorists” when no proof of guilt existed? Who was blocking all independent inquiry?

Even 11 years on these questions are still not answered.

But those immediately named guilty without any forensic proof certainly fitted the need for a plausible Enemy now that the “threat of the Soviet Union” and “communist world rule” were dead. How else could the billion-dollar-a-day military be justified with no peace dividend amidst a corporately hollowed-out U.S. economy entering its long-term slide? While all the media and most of the people asserted the official 9-11 conspiracy theory as given fact, not all did. A Bay Street broker with whom I was improbably discussing the event in Cuba had no problem recognising the value meaning. When I asked what he thought about the official conspiracy theory, he was frank: “You can call it what you want, but America needs a war to pull the people together and expand into new resource rich areas. That is what it has always done from Mexico on. And that is what it needs now”. When I wondered why none in the know said so, he smirked: “It would be impolite”, adding, “It affects the entire future prosperity of America and the West”. And all the deaths? “It had to be done -far less than it could have been”. The 19 Arabs with box-cutters reducing the World Trade Center buildings to powder in a few seconds? He shrugged.

Thus everyone since 9-11 is prohibited nail-clippers on planes to confirm the absurd - including 15 of the 19 alleged hijackers being from Saudi Arabia and several apparently still alive after crashing the planes into the buildings. [2] As for the diabolical mastermind Osama bin Laden, he is never linked by credible evidence to the crime and never claims responsibility for the strike since the videos of him are fakes. “Ground Zero” is a double entendre. All doubts are erased a priori.

Decoding the U.S. Theater of Wars and the Moral Driver Behind

One already knew that suspension of belief is the first act of fiction, and that instant culture rules the U.S. One already knew that monster technical events are America’s stock in trade. And one already knew the long history of false U.S. pretexts for war - so well established that a young strategic thinker a decade after 9-11 advises the right-wing Washington Policy Institute on how to create a crisis by deadly planned incident to make war on Iran - “it is the traditional way of getting into war for what is best in America’s interests”. [3] One further knew from past research that the U.S.’s strategic leadership since 1945 had been Nazi-based in information and connections and the dominant Central-European figures articulating it ever after across Democrat and Republican lines have a common cause. For over 40 years, Henry Kissinger as Republican and Zbigniew Brzezinski as Democrat have been protégés of David Rockefeller, selected as Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Group leaders, and capable of any mass-homicidal plan to advance “U.S. interests”. The banker-and-oil imperial line through David Rockefeller as paradigm case goes back to the Nazi period to John Foster Dulles (an in-law) and his brother Allen Dulles (OSS and then CIA Director), who Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg called “traitors” for their support of the Nazi regime. The Rockefeller Foundation funded and developed German eugenics programs in the pre-war years, Standard Oil supplied oil in collaboration with I.G. Farben, and so on. [4]

The supreme moral goal and strategic methods governing U.S. covert-state performance have not only been very similar in moral principle, but have deeply connected Rockefeller protégés Kissinger and Brzezinski, and more deeply still the theoretical godfather of U.S. covert state policy, Leo Strauss, who was funded out of Germany by David Rockefeller from the start. The inner logic of covert and not-so-covert U.S. corporate world rule since 1945 unified under Wall Street financial management and transnational corporate treaties for unhindered control of commodities and money capital flows across all borders is undeniable if seldom tracked. This architecture of the grand plan for a New World Order is evident in both strategic policy and global political and armed action over decades that have seen the objectives increasingly fulfilled with constructed deadly crises as pretexts for war the standard technique.[5] Behind them as first post-Nazi historical turn lies the 1947 National Security Act (NSA) which created the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and explicitly licenses destruction of life, truth and other societies as institutional methods. The CIA is charged with designing, planning and executing “propaganda, economic war, direct preventive action, sabotage, anti-sabotage, destruction, subversion against hostile States, assistance to clandestine liberation movements, guerrilla murders, assistance to indigenous groups opposed to the enemy countries of the free world”. The linkage back to Nazi methods and world-rule goal as the highest moral objective is not just one of corresponding ultimate principles and strategic policy formation. It relied on Nazi SS intelligence sources and means from the beginning of the covert terror state. [6]

There is no heinous means that is not assumed as the highest morality by this long-standing covert institutional formation linking to the presidential office. It is an explicitly secret system involving at least the Defense Department and the CIA, the former with many more operatives and offices. The Special Activities Division (SAD) to carry out NSA criminal operations, for example, also confers the highest honors awarded in recognition of distinguished valor and excellence - as did the earlier SS prototype in Germany. What people find difficult to recognise is that these actions, whether by the SAD or other system operations, are conceived as the highest duty, however life-system destructive and mass murderous they are. All participants are super patriots in their own view, as were the Nazis. Contradiction between declared and actual values, however, is a central mode of the covert system. For example, what can be considered a high duty in the perpetual U.S. “war on drugs”, the most morally obligatory commitment of the U.S. state, is at the same time a war against and with other drug operations to transport illegal hard drugs into the U.S. itself. [7]

We might see here a parallel between foreign mass murder and domestic mass murder in 9-11, with both regarded as high patriotism in this supreme morality. In the background of America’s Reichstag Fire and likewise disclosing the unlimited geo-strategic action that can be operationalized as necessary and good, the post-1945 U.S. control of international sea-lanes made the covert U.S. state the world’s dominant narcotics controller so as to fund secret criminal war actions from South-East Asia to Latin America, entailing the addiction of its own peoples. [8] This woeful method has been long known by experts, but came to be public knowledge in the Reagan-state funding of the death-squad Contras of Nicaragua as “the moral equal of our Founding Fathers” (a tribute he is said to have given later to the drug-running warlords and jihadists of Afghanistan). These moral contradictions seem insane, but this is so only if one does not comprehend the underlying supreme morality of which they are all expressions. Even U.S.-sponsored death squads torturing and killing tens of thousands of poor people across Latin America before 2000 and their return as direct covert U.S.-state method from Iraq to Syria after 9-11 - called “the Salvador option” [9] - is regarded as necessary and obligatory to “defend the Free World and our way of life”. They entail ever more total U.S. world rule and self-maximizing position by strategic deduction from the supreme morality’s first premises. The covert nature of the mass-murderous operationalization is never from moral embarrassment. It is solely to ensure effectiveness of execution against “soft” and “uninformed” public opinion, to terrorize people in situ from continued resistance, and to annihilate its leadership and community agency all the way down. Throughout the deciding moments of execution of the underlying supreme value program, global corporate money demand multiplication is always the ultimate value driver - as may be tested by seeking any covert U.S. action or overt war which is not so regulated beneath saturating propaganda of lawful intentions of peace and freedom.

These lines of underlying moral institution, policy, strategic plan, and massive life destruction at every level are indisputable facts of the covert and official faces of the U.S. state, but are typically not connected to the September 11, 2001 attack. Since most people cannot believe their own government or the “leader of the free world” could execute such a sabotage action as “9-11” in which thousands of American themselves died, these behavioral reminders forge the unifying meaning. Worse still occurred in the last “war” before 9-11. In the background providing graphic example of how the covert U.S. state apparatus is structured to attack and murder U.S. citizens themselves to strategically maximize implementation of its supreme value program of transnational corporate money sequences over all barriers, there is the now known Operation Northwoods. Very familiar to the 9-11 truth movement, but unpublicized since its release under freedom of information laws, this Department of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff plan proposed that the CIA and other operatives covert operatives “undertake a range of atrocities” to be blamed on Cuba to provide pretext for invasion. “Innocent civilians were to be shot on American streets; boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba were to be sunk on the high seas; a wave of violent terrorism was to be launched in Washington DC, Miami and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did commit; planes would be hijacked”. [10] All would be blamed on Castro the Communist in place of bin Laden the Islamicist, and invasion of desired resistant territory would be achieved as a triumph of American freedom and interests over its enemies.

Operation Northwoods was not, however, okayed by President Kennedy - perhaps another reason for his assassination and replacement by more pliant presidents to represent “America’s interests” in accord with the supreme morality. Underneath the stolen election of George Bush Jr. in contrast - whose family made its money, in part, by serving the covert financial requirements of the Nazi regime before and during the 1939-45 War - was a domestic and foreign administration which would push further than any in the past to advance “U.S. interests” to full-spectrum world rule. Its project included reversing the Roosevelt New Deal and the social state within the U.S. itself - “an anomaly” as Bush Jr. expressed the historical perspective and ethic at work. This plan was more explicit in the published Project for the New American Century formed from 1997 on. It even supplied the need for a 9-11 event in its 2000 version, the year that Bush Jr. was elected and the year before 9-11. To indicate the “non-partisan” nature of the planning, Democrat National security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski had already hinted at the usefulness of a 9-11-style domestic attack to move policy forward in his 1998 book, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. [11]

The Moral Compass of 9-11

As a moral philosopher with social value systems as my primary object of analysis, my first thoughts in understanding “9-11” were of the system motives, known methods, and objective interests driving the event which could coherently explain it. Whatever the immediate hold of the official conspiracy theory on the public mind, a rational explanation is required which is consistent with the suppressed facts and the organising geo-strategic plan on both sides of the event.

For over a decade before 9-11, there were three U.S.-propelled global trends that almost never come into the understanding of 9-11 itself. 9-11 truth seekers themselves have focused on the foreground technics and the transparent motive for oil. But these are undergirded by deeper sea-shifts of geopolitical and economic wars of seizure and destruction by other name against which the world’s people were rising. To compel books of analysis into one unifying frame, transnational corporate-rights treaties from NAFTA to the Maastracht Treaty to the WTO overrode all other rights across borders; the private “financialization” stripping of social sectors and welfare states had advanced across the world; and the totalizing movement of the system across all former “cold war” and cultural borders was “the new world order” in formation. Together these vast shifts towards transnational money-sequence rule of all reversed centuries of democratic evolution. And every step of the supreme value program was life blind at every step of its global operationalization. [12]

Yet states and cultures were so sweepingly re-set into unaccountable transnational corporate and bank rule that few recognised the absolutist value program being imposed on the world. Fewer still recognised all was unfolding according to plan.

What has been least appreciated about the long-term strategic plan unfolding on both sides of what was immediately called “9-11” - Call Emergency! — is that supreme banker and global money director David Rockefeller had summarized “the plan” to fellow money-party elites across borders at the Bildersberg meeting in Baden Baden Germany in June 1991 - exactly at the same time that the Soviet Union and its resistant barriers fell. [13] Bear in mind that Rockefeller among other initiatives appointed both Kissinger and Brzezinski for the lead in both the supranational Bilderberg and Trilateral strategic bodies of which he was the lead patron, not to mention financed the unemployed academic Leo Strauss out of Germany to be the godfather “philosopher” of the “new world order”. Rockefeller speaks very precisely to his fellow “elite of the elite” of the Western world where only Americans and Europe are invited and reportage excluded:

“A supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries”, Rockefeller said. [14]

Observe the foundational new concepts in place of responsible government and democratic accountability. They are now consigned to “past centuries”. A “supranational sovereignty” has replaced them and is morally “preferable”. Rockefeller is not exaggerating. By 1991 a “supranational sovereignty” had already developed in the form of transnational treaties conferring override rights of “profit opportunity” on transnational corporations and private bank rule of government finances across borders - procedurally trumping any elected legislatures and their laws which are inconsistent with their thousands of treaty articles, even when the system eventually leads to world depression as now. [15] The source of the legitimacy of governments, ultimate sovereignty, has now passed as preferable to “an intellectual elite and bankers”: more exactly, academic strategy servants and transnational money sequences overriding all human and planetary life requirements a-priori by the supreme moral goal.

Ask which function of the world’s people and means of life is not now in debt to Wall Street and the private global banking system it leads. Ask which means of life from food and water to autos and pension cheques is not thus ultimately controlled, or which commodity is not under oligopolist corporate sway. The “surely preferable” objective was already achieved by 1991 or in advanced global institutional motion. Now supreme over all else so that all else is now accountable to it, and it is not accountable to anything above it, “the plan” seemed all but accomplished by Rockefeller’s own considered words.

But what if people resist the new world rule with no life coordinate or constraint at any level of its execution? We may recall that during the death-squad rule of the Argentina generals at this time in which civilians were murdered and tortured in the thousands, National Security Adviser Kissinger congratulated the junta on their "very good results - - The quicker you succeed the better.” Kissinger also heartily approved of the earlier massacres and torture in Chile. The resistance was in this way pre-empted long before the Soviet Union fell, and after 1990 had no block in the Middle East and Central Asia either. “The plan” has been very long term. Kissinger the geo-executer was originally appointed to high office by Rockefeller (to lead the Council on Foreign Relations back in 1954), and - to give a sense of the long-range trajectory of the plan design - was, incredibly, the U.S. administration’s first choice for an “independent 9-11 Commission”. The obviously not-independent Kissinger was still not a problem for “the free press” and official discourse. But when he was required to disclose his business connections, he withdrew to stay covert in his ongoing backroom capacities and enrichment.

The 9-11 sacrifice is better understood within the deep-structural context of the unfolding plan. Thus David Rockefeller gave special thanks to media like “the New York Times, Washington Post, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion” in co-operating with the plan. Rockefeller was again precise:

This plan for the world would have been impossible for us to develop if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years. [16]

The plan’s next decisive steps were in fact already in motion as Rockefeller expressed gratitude for the media black-out. A new strategic manifesto from the Pentagon was in preparation entitled “Defense Planning Guidance on Post-Cold- War Strategy,” completed on February 18, 1992. [17] Prepared under the supervision of Paul Wolfowitz, then the Pentagon’s Undersecretary for Policy, it was disclosed in March of 1992 by the New York Times. After the first invasion of Iraq, it became known as the Project for the New American Century, publicly released from 1997 to 2000 prior to 9-11. Again we may note the long arc of planning control, crisis and war as required. Item 6 of the strategic plan defined the agenda in general terms: “In the Middle East and Southwest Asia, our overall objective is to remain the predominant power in the region and preserve U.S. and western access to the region’s oil.”

Oil-rich Iraq had in fact been invaded - not only to privatize its peerlessly high-quality surface oilfields but to destroy its region-leading socialist infrastructure. Iraq became accessible for invasion as the arms-bankrupted Soviet Union was in collapse. We may observe that the covertly genocidal destruction of Iraq bridged Republican and Democrat administrations over three changes of government - disclosing how the covert state operates as a moral constant across party fronts. The actions confirm and express the one supreme moral goal identified above. They bridge from Saddam himself as CIA-payroll killer and war proxy against Iran to recapture lost Iran oilfields dating from 1980 to 1988 to the fall of the USSR in 1991 as the axis of the long-term strategic plan of global turnaround to “America’s century” still to come before and after 9-11. But between 1990 and 2003 Saddam was transmuted from former ally to aggressor against Kuwait in an invasion given an official green light from the U.S. government, to “mushroom cloud” threat with invented “weapons of mass destruction”. In fact, National Security Adviser Wolfowitz explained after the invasion found nothing of the kind: “[We had] virtually no economic options with Iraq because the country floats on a sea of oil.” Observe how the invasion is conceived as obligatory for a reason that expresses the supreme value goal. Observe that it occurs less than two years after 9-11, which gave the open-cheque justification for the bombing and occupation which allowed the expropriation of Iraq’s society’s oil resources.

The problem was not the evil Saddam or the “weapons of mass destruction”, the standard reverse projection. [18] The problem was the Iraqi people themselves and their developed oil-funded social life infrastructure between the supreme oil-fields and their U.S. corporate control and privatization. 9-11 was, thus, first the justification for invading Afghanistan - to clear the way for pipelines into the former Soviet republics from the Caspian Sea region- pipelines that prompted the U.S. representative to predictively warn the Taliban: “Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.” [19] 9-11 was then the necessary basis of justification for the bombing of Baghdad for the unifying supreme objective.

In fact, seldom published in the corporate media keeping the glare of publicity away from the supreme moral objective, the publicly owned and managed oil revenues of Iraq had been invested since the 1950’s in Iraq’s advanced social infrastructure, leading the Middle East with free higher education, high health standards, and near universal livelihood security. The world’s oldest civilisation was robust in organisational capacities long before the CIA-asset Saddam was installed. Despite his murdering his way to the top in this function, even Saddam could not destroy the system because socialist government had been achieved decades earlier by a powerful oil-workers’ union base and a population glad to have all education free, an efficient low-cost foods delivery system, and the most advanced public healthcare system in the Middle East. So there was not only the “sea of oil” as a motive to assert U.S. control in the new “supranational sovereignty” of the world. Just as important in this ultimate moral cause, what the U.S. covert state always seeks to destroy by any means, is a successful social infrastructure without private big oil, bankers and transnational corporations free to control it towards higher profit opportunities.

Unravelling the Supreme Moral Doctrine behind the U.S. Covert State

The genocide of Iraq, as the long-opposing “evil empire” was in free-fall, is the most important strategic anchoring prior to “9-11”. Covert strategic policy to forward the supreme goal is by now self-evident, but the inner moral logic is assumed not penetrated. The most influential of Rockefeller’s protégés in this regard is the “philosopher king” of the U.S. covert state, Leo Strauss. While he never worked in a philosophy department or has any training in logic, his concept of “natural right” fits exactly to the “supranational sovereignty” of private money-sequence rule of the world - what “the intellectual elite” Rockefeller refers to invoke as “moral anchor”, “right” and “justice”. The moral thought system is not unlike that of Mein Kampf without the racist rant, camouflaged everywhere in practice by the method of big lies - “noble lies” as Strauss exalts them. [20] The innermost value driver is a perpetual war of dispossession of the weaker for the private transnational money-capital multiplication of the rich.

Nothing in this doctrine is too mendacious, greed-crazed and murderous if it fulfills the plan of this limitless private-capital rule as ultimate moral ground and compass. In Strauss’s canonical teaching of U.S. national security advisers and intellectual following, the ruling moral absolute is expressed by the core master idea behind the “supranational sovereignty” of an “intellectual elite and bankers”:

“limitless capital accumulation - - - the highest right and moral duty”. [21]

This is the ethical absolute of the covert U.S. state and its strategic decision structure. And there is no internal limit within this moral universe to life means seizure from poorer societies and resource looting for the supreme goal. It is the natural and absolute Good.

To justify its meaning, the Straussian canon adopts a potted reading of Western moral and political philosophy from Plato through Hobbes, Hegel, Nietzsche, Marx and Weber. This impresses American political operatives of the faith, but Strauss is a failed philosopher turned down by Paul Tillich for his post-doctoral Habilitation and only saved from academic ruin in Germany by Rockefeller grant money. While not taken seriously as philosophy anywhere else, it is worth decoding its talmudic involution for the borrowed ideas that drive its covert state disciples and neo-fascist public “intellectuals” in America. The ultimately organising idea is to commend all forms of conquering and limitlessly expanding private capital as “natural right and law” with genocidal subjugations justified in glowing moral terms. For example, “noble lies” is the moral category for limitless mendacity. One may wonder how educated people can be so bent out of moral shape. So I now concisely provide what cannot be found elsewhere: the inner logic of the supreme doctrine as perversions of great thinkers. Its framework of meaning and value helps us to understand why the 9-11 event could easily follow for the managers of the covert U.S. state and its Straussian planners as not at all anomalous or evil within their moral logic. 9-11 follows as a maximally rational and unique tool to achieve the objectives in fact achieved by 9-11, and the geo-strategic cabal behind it is servilely linked from the beginning to the dominant private transnational corporate and banking interests exemplified by David Rockefeller.

To understand this brutal moral universe and its connection to 9-11, the 9-11 wars and a globalizing police state, we need to understand the deformations of its basic organising ideas.

Plato’s idea of “the noble lie” means, in fact, a myth or parable to communicate an underlying truth about the triadic human soul of reason, spirit and appetite which, Plato argues, should be reflected in the construction of the ideal state (in which the rulers are communist in their common property to keep them uncorrupted and true). But through the prism of U.S. global money-party rule a la Strauss this idea becomes the principle of lying to the public to keep the vulgar herd - the people themselves - ignorant and obedient. The philosophies of Hobbes and Hegel are also grist for this mill. Hobbes argues that “man is moved by a restless desire for power after power that ceaseth only in death”, but this brute desire in the “State of Nature” is tamed by “the covenant of peace” ordered by the internal sovereign as absolute. Via Strauss and the U.S. covert state this becomes right is might and the ultimate “natural right” is limitless private capital power and empire with no end of totalization across the peoples and lands of the world. Hegel too suits a fascist-capitalist reading since he argues “the State is the march of God through the world”, and war itself is history’s test of which State is a higher realisation of “the absolute Idea”. But Hegel still envisaged a “universal state” to supersede the competitive private-property division of capitalism in the “universalization of right and law on earth”. Once again U.S. private money-capital power with no bound, the supreme moral goal in the Rockefeller-Strauss doctrine, is opposite to the classical philosophy it invokes. Once more dialectical development of reason to more coherently inclusive conception and life is reversed into one-way private money capital sequences maximized to rule the world with the U.S. military as its instrument of force and terror.

However it conceals its meaning, all positions come down to this underlying value code - as may be tested on whatever transnational money-sequence demand, right or war is launched next. 9-11 construction in such a moral world does not violate this value code. It expresses it in self-maximizing strategic turn to achieve the ultimate goal.

Friedrich Nietzsche may provide the best fodder for the doctrine when he advises that “life is essentially appropriation, injury, overpowering of what is alien and weaker, imposing of one’s own forms, and at its mildest exploitation” in his superman vision of “beyond good and evil”. For philosophical Nietzscheans, this is code for the inner meaning of the angst of artistic creation. But this meaning is predictably lost on the U.S. covert-state school seeking the “supranational sovereignty” of “limitless capital accumulation” as the supreme good with the “intellectual elite” as servants to it. Karl Marx’s link of capitalism’s success to productive force development is the ultimate equivocation upon which this ruling doctrine depends - making no distinction between productive capital providing life goods and unproductive money sequencing hollowing out the world by money-capital multiplication. Marx, it must be acknowledged, did not make the distinction himself since this mutation of capital came a century after his death. [22]

Finally Max Weber’s Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism does not ground this doctrine of “limitless capital accumulation as the highest right and duty” with the state to serve it, as Strauss again torturously suggests. In fact, Weber deplores any such perversion of public authority. His capitalist model is a young Benjamin Franklin speaking of money saved and invested as like having “a breeding sow”, not a transnational money-sequence juggernaut of eco-genocidal expansion. Revealingly, Benjamin Franklin and “the protestant ethic” in general were most concerned about non-waste, which Strauss explicitly excludes from the meaning of “limitless capital accumulation”. For Leo Strauss and his U.S. “national security” disciples, the capitalist may waste as much as he wants by “natural right”. Further, in complete inversion of source, the greed worship of the U.S. state, its patrons and its academy disciples reverses the model of the “spirit of capitalism” exemplified by Benjamin Franklin in proprietary claim on knowledge and inventions. He, in fact, refused to patent his famous Franklin Stove because he believed that no innovation or new knowledge from which other people could benefit should be denied them - just as he himself had benefitted from the community of knowledge and science as the distinguishing feature of being a civilised human being.

In short, it is important to recognise how twisted the covertly ruling doctrine is. No element of it is life coherent or true to the classical thinkers in which it costumes itself. In the end, only the transnational U.S. money party has any place in its rights and obligations, and any sacrifice of other life to its supreme goal is legitimate - linking back to the Nazi-U.S. corporate axis that nearly destroyed the civilised world once before. [23]

Money-Capital Power Ueber Alles: How Economic Rationality Leads the Plan

The U.S. culture of money-sequence “rationality” is the underlying intellectual and moral disorder which leads to “limitless money capital accumulation” as the supreme moral goal. In formal terms, the equation of rationality to atomic self-maximization is assumed a-priori across domains. With globalizing Wall-Street-led “financialization”, this “rationality” becomes equated to private money-sequence multiplication across all borders as the ultimate Good. This is the innermost mutation of value logic and goal, the moral DNA, from which the cancerous world system develops on both sides of 9-11. [24]

This first principle itself is, in fact, built into formal economics, decision and game theory, and strategic science, as I explain step by step in “Behind Global System Collapse: The Life-Blind Structure of Economic Rationality.” [25] It is axiomatic but unexamined, life-blindly absolutist but not recognised as morally problematic. To make a long story short, competitive self-maximization in the market is assumed to produce “the best of possible worlds” by mathematical proof. “Pareto efficiency” is believed to demonstrate this by private money exchanges between self-maximizing atoms a priori stripped of all life properties, relations, society, conditions of choice, and all natural and civil life support systems. Pareto himself recognised outside this formula what has since been covered up. Not only is the formula consistent with most having remaining impoverished by the “optimum” of “no-one worse off”, what none who cite “Pareto efficiency” as a standard academic mantra ever acknowledge or even recognise. Pareto himself is in no doubt of the implication. As the fascist party he belongs to rules Italy and Rockefeller creates the Council of Foreign Relations, he asserts with approval: “Very moral civilized people have destroyed and continue to destroy, without the least scruple, savage or barbarian peoples”. [26] We glimpse here at the roots the supreme morality built into “economic science” itself.

Yet, as demonstrated in “Behind Global System Collapse”, even the most liberal canons of America, including John Rawls’ classic A Theory of Justice, are grounded in the same meta principle. [27] Rationality and value are equated to self-maximizing gain with no limit within game-theoretic interactions as the sole limiting framework of “limitless money capital acquisition”. The generic equation defines, indeed, the dominant intellectual and economic mind-set of America and the global system in action since 1980. The cabal internal to U.S. national security strategic planning follows the moral logic to its most radical conclusions with no constraints by life or law. The one absolute moral meaning is the spread of U.S. economic, military and political power as good for all, or, more exactly in Straussian language, limitless private transnational money-capital expansion as the highest right and moral duty. Only what is consistent with or serves this supreme morality, it follows, deserves to exist. This is the alpha and omega of the covert doctrine and state, and careful reading can find no disconfirmation beneath the rhetoric of “noble lies”.

The Iraq Paradigm: Genocide Strategy From 1990 On

The Iraq line of the geostrategic plan from 1990 to 2001 and after is a paradigmatic articulation of the covertly ruling moral logic. It launches into the theatre of war as direct war attack when U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, is instructed to green-light Saddam’s already known plan to invade Kuwait in 1990: “The US. has no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait”, she advises. To formalize the lie as official and traditional, she reports: “Secretary Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960s, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America”. [28]

The dispute was, in fact, over Kuwait’s drawing out oil from reserves underlying Iraq as enabled by the colonial split of the oil-rich Kuwait province from Iraq - the classic divide-and-rule policy holding also in the division of oil-rich Kurdistan among four manufactured states. Saddam had good reason to trust the U.S., not only by the long-term official promise of neutrality but as blood-mix ally when he waged a U.S.-supported war of aggression against Iran - which still remains the target. Note the big lie to provoke the supreme crime of war has remained without any glare of publicity that might derail the plan. When Saddam did exactly as planned by invading Kuwait, Bush Sr. raved about the Nazi-like aggression against a weaker country in the reverse projection that always defines the covert U.S. state before, through and after 9-11. So in the same name of “preventing aggression” U.S. “defense” forces invaded Iraq to destroy any life capacity it had to defend itself - always the strategy since the defeat in Vietnam. The genocide began by the massacre of many tens of thousands of fleeing soldiers. Recall the weeping young woman, the Kuwait ambassador’s daughter, planted next to baby incubators falsely claiming the monster Saddam had murdered the babies. This reverse projection was soon to be made real thousands of times over inside the victim society of Iraq.

Reverse projection of evil is the meta law of U.S. psy-ops propaganda in the deadly conflicts and wars it covertly starts. This is the supreme moral program in action as “noble lies”. In this case, the air-bombing after surrender continued from U.S. and “special ally” Britain as “sanctions of Iraq” to “prevent aggression” - again the reverse projection. In fact the bombs continually fell on the water and electricity infrastructures of the defenceless people and against all lines of repair to restore either - “the line in the sand against Iraq aggression”. We might bear in mind that Wolfowitz was Undersecretary of Defense under Secretary Cheney at this time, their positions not unlike those at the time of 9-11.

Air-bombing, as Bertrand Russell long ago pointed out, is inherently fascist in erasing the killed and maimed from sight while ensuring impunity for the bombers of defenceless people. But all such mass murder is only collateral damage to the supreme moral goal as “natural right and law”. The air bombing of Iraq’s water and electricity supplies dressed in one big lie after another continued in slow mass-murderous destruction of the people and their social life infrastructures years on end. Denis Halliday, United Nations Humanitarian Co-ordinator for the mission finally called it “genocide” (Wikipedia calls it “the Persian Gulf War”) when he resigned in 1998 to protest against “the crimes against humanity”. But no-one knew until the U.S. Department of Defense Intelligence got out that the first sweep of Iraq was planned down to the mass killing of the infants and children. September 11 in 2001 is better understood in this wider context of strategic planning by the covert U.S. terror state. For years the non-stop bombing of the people’s central life-water support system deliberately engineered mass dying from diseases of children in the hundreds of thousands.

What was predicted by Harvard Medical School researchers from the continuous civilian infrastructure bombing by the U.S. military - the deaths of over 500,000 children - was verified by the counts scientifically taken at the risk of researchers as the bombing continued month after month with NATO support. [29] Full-spectrum corporate money-sequencing through Iraq under the Comprehensive Privatization Program would only be enabled by “9-11” down the road. But first the bases of advanced social life organization needed to be destroyed. The later-leaked U.S. Defense Intelligence document entitled “Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities” expresses the moral DNA at work. I cite the key lines of U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency reports because they reveal the character of the supreme moral goal and its strategic planning. “With no domestic sources of water treatment replacement or chemicals like chlorine” and “laden with biological pollutants and bacteria”, the leaked Defense Intelligence Agency report says (italics added), “epidemics of such diseases as cholera, hepatitis, and typhoid” will “probably take six months before the [drinking and sewage water] system is fully degraded”. The document continues, Conditions are favorable for communicable disease outbreaks [by the one-way air bombing] with the “most likely diseases during next sixty-ninety days of diarrheal diseases (particularly children) acute respiratory diseases (colds and influenza); typhoid; hepatitis (particularly children); measles, diphtheria, and pertussis (particularly children); meningitis including meningococcal (particularly children), cholera”. “Medical Problems in Iraq”, dated March 15, 1991, reports that the “water is less than 5 percent of the original supply - - diarrhea is four times above normal levels - - Conditions in Baghdad remain favorable for disease outbreaks”. The fifth document in June reports “almost all medicines in critically short supply” and “Gastroenteritis killing children - - in the south, 80 percent of the deaths are children”. [30]

In short, no limit to covert U.S. planning of indiscriminate mass murder for the supreme goal exists. The number who died in 9-11 suddenly pales in comparison. In all cases, it lets “those inimical to U.S. interests” know that there is no limit to how far the covert terror state will go for the supreme moral code not yet decoded. Combined with wars of aggression before and after 9-11, raining fire and explosions on civilians from the air so that no defense or escape can be made, saturating the fields of public meaning with big lies civilly dangerous to unmask, and bringing vast enrichment and new powers to transnational corporate conglomerates and their past and present CEO’s of the acting U.S. state - all become clear in their ultimate meaning once decoded. As the Democrat U.S. Secretary of State responded to the question of the 500,000 killed children, “we think the price was worth it”. No price is too much to pay for fulfilment of the transcendent project of the global U.S. state and its private capital rule as “the Free World”. “Those inimical to our interests” are those who oppose or are in the way of it, and thus “hate our freedom”.

The Strategic Logic of Value through 9-11

By 2000 it was very clear to the U.S. strategic planners that the opening up of the Middle East and Central Asia after the fall of the Soviet Union had to be further pursued before it was too late. The great regret for the planning personnel of the coming Bush Jr. administration such as Paul Wolfowitz was that Iraq had not been taken over on the first invasion. The need for “full spectrum dominance” across the Middle East and Central Asia was thus the essential argument of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), with the prescription that no other “regional power” was able to contest this dominance. The PNAC more explicitly recognised the strategic necessity for what Zbigniew Brzezinski had already called for in 1998 in The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives - namely, “the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat” to ensure public support for “the United States, as the sole and, indeed, the first truly global power”. The now once untouchable Central Asia, formerly of the USSR, was thus targeted as essential not only for its vast oil reserves, but to complete rule of the “first truly global power”.

The Project for the New American Century was more explicit than Brzezinski in 2000, the year before 9-11. As former Defence Minister of Canada, Paul Hellyer, lucidly puts it in a recent address (italics added): “The authors of this American ‘Mein Kampf’ [the PNAC] for conquest recognized the difficulty of persuading sophisticated Americans to accept such a gigantic change in policy. So they wrote the following (subsequently removed from the record): ‘Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary changes, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor.’” [31]

Excepting the Vietnam War ending in military defeat - but vastly enriched armaments and connected private bank and corporate interests - the hitherto favoured strategic-plan mode had been local death squads along with pervasive American media propaganda against the victims as “communists” and “sponsored by the USSR”. But once there was no remotely equal opponent in mass-kill capacities and transnational trade treaties now bound governments within corporate-rights law as overriding domestic laws and policies, anything became permissible. The plan for the “supranational sovereignty” of “limitless capital accumulation” in “full-spectrum power” required only 9-11 to derail world-wide peace, environmental and anti-corporate globalization movements growing into uncontrollable civilian capacity across borders and continents.

People were waking up to the one-way destruction of life systems at all levels. Iraq was not alone in the genocidal clearance of former socialist infrastructures uniting peoples across ethnic lines. A far more democratic Yugoslavia was set up and destroyed by financial means in the same year by the 1991 U.S. Foreign Operations Appropriations Law after the 1980’s multiplication of public interest rates to over 20 percent prime devoured social life support structures across the world. This was the unseen financialization base of a global war against public and worker economic and political powers that was reaping a cumulative global civilian reaction of opposition to “the plan”. 9-11 ensured against the fightback of financially dispossessed peoples with the signature reverse operation - diversion to an external “terrorist threat” that stood in the way of more sweeping transnational corporate wars on more peoples being dispossessed. Civil war in Yugoslavia long targeted by Reagan’s secret National Security Directive 133 as early as 1984 was predicted and occurred after the underlying employment and welfare structure of multi-ethnic Yugoslavia collapsed under deliberate financial destabilization. (The villain of the piece, Slobovan Milosevic, was himself a major banker). In oil-rich Somalia, two-thirds of its territory had been leased out to four transnational oil companies by 1993 - a condition of lost grounds of life for Somalians behind the primeval civil war ever since. These are merely expressions of the underlying logic of value and the plan for its supranational rule beneath the lights of publicity as “discretion”. The examples are myriad from Latin America to South-East Asia to sub-Sahara Africa and the Middle East to Israel and Canada today. But a descriptive law of the supreme moral goal holds across all diverse instances of its expression.

Strategic planning for the destruction of social life infrastructures of peoples for private money capital gain without limit is the ultimate value program throughout from the U.S. to China.

The people of the U.S. are not exempt from their own system of covert state rule, although democratic heroism here joins with the larger world against it. This is the ultimate moral struggle on earth today. The moral politics of the disorder are the enforcement of the descriptive law. This is the ruling meta program, and it is carcinogenic by its nature. The supreme motive force it multiplies by is privately self-maximizing money possession (individual and corporate) seeking to be limitlessly more. More = Better. Less = Militant Demand for More.

The “9-11” event is the epicentre of the supreme moral objective seated in Wall Street. It is best understood as an ultimate strategic maximizer of the italicized formula. Exactly expressed, its ultimately regulating axiology is private money inputs through all life to maximally more private money outputs in ad infinitum progression: Money →Life as Means→ More Money or, formally, $→ LasM →$1,2,3,4--- N .

At the highest level of anchoring moral meaning, this private money-demand rule seeks to be absolute and total across borders with no quarter. “Full spectrum dominance” is its military method. Yet what distinguishes it from the Nazi rule it connects with as prior transnational corporate partner in war making is that in the U.S. private money demand multiplication at the top is the only organising value meaning. 97% of its money command is produced by private bank notes of others’ debt to the private bank system centred in Wall Street. Yet despite this very narrow centre of control, almost no global territory or field of life is outside its rule and strategic plan. The “Trans-Pacific Partnership” is but its latest expression - focusing on private knowledge-patent money sequencing to rule out generic pharmaceuticals and other life-and-death knowledge commons from which higher profits cannot be made. The one underlying common principle throughout all phases is transnational corporate and bank money sequencing to more. Its converse is to override all life requirements at all levels, and strategically planned crises and wars are the advancing lines of control and enforcement.

What is not recognized through all the genocidal wars, ecocidal results, collapsing social life support systems and falling wages, however, is that this ruling value sequence rationally leads to “9-11” as maximal strategic payoff progression. “Absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event”, the Project for the New American Century declared before 9-11, “ - - the U.S risks the loss of a global security order that is uniquely friendly to American principles and prosperity”. Decoded, this meant in theory and practice more transnational private money sequence progression to ever more control over all still-uncontrolled assets for more and richer returns without limit of take or life destruction. But these are unspeakable lines of value meaning, and that is likely why, for example, Wikipedia keeps altering the entry of my name with conspiracy theory attributions and smears to ensure that such deep-structural diagnosis does not gain currency. That is how this system works, and analysis will provide more variations of this gagging method on 9-11 ahead.

The strategic necessity of the 9-11 event for “global security order” can even be asserted by the principal architects of the administration under which it happened, and those who observe this can be dismissed as “conspiracy theorists”. Reverse projection is, as always, the essential psychological operation. The documented but shouted-down logistics included V-P Cheney having control of the air-defence of NORAD six months before the event to manage the relocation of the stand-by fighter jets to Alaska and Canada on September 11, 2001, and more broadly, no jet intervention for almost two hours until the full operation was completed. The tell-tale signs that it was not the “foreign act of war” which was trumpeted were that President Bush Jr. continued exposed in set-up photo ops with school children during the “attack on the U.S.” Not a wheel turned in U.S. jet intervention or homeland protection. No evident defensive action or response whatever occurred. Until strategic security from public uprising and awareness was established, the blame on foreign terrorists was repeated non-stop around the clock with no-one raising a question.

Weeks thus passed in inaction. As the future director of the 9-11 Commission said years before 9-11: “The effort and resources we devote to averting or containing this threat now, in the ‘before’ period, will seem woeful, even pathetic, when compared to what will happen ‘after’.” [32] And so one war of invasion after another was made upon entirely unproven sources of the “attack” who were, in fact, states and peoples standing in the way of vast publicly owned oil-fields. These had to be taken for control by U.S. and allied state armies for the private transnational corporations employing their leaders in and out of office. Money-sequence oil to quadruple-plus more has been the story ever since. [33] If 80% of the 19 claimed suicide agents were from oil-ally Saudi Arabia, if none of their identity papers could have survived the destroyed buildings, and if several of these “hijackers” were apparently still alive, why did none of the vaunted “free press” ever investigate 9-11? The “noble lie” is built into every step.

The total demolition of the buildings on 9-11 was professionally executed - impossible to manage except by a technologically sophisticated state with intelligence support, as former State Secretary for Defense of Germany, Andreas von Bülow, has concisely observed at the first-order level: “To hijack four big airliners within a few minutes and fly them into targets within a single hour and doing so on complicated flight routes! That is unthinkable, without backing from the secret apparatuses of state and industry”. [34] Turning huge fireproofed steel-girded buildings in the centre of New York into fuming debris in a few seconds and melting car bodies nearby extends the problem of physical impossibility by jet fires. That is why the firemen were killed by being “falsely told it was a fire, not military ordnance”. The fire-squad commander who told me this asked me not to name him because of the harm that might come to him “from the media” - the 9-11 gag again. Yet the core and deciding issue is strangely avoided by all:

Whatever the technics, every step before and after 9-11 took place in accordance with the supreme moral objective and covert-state strategic methods to execute it. The smoking gun is incinerated buildings. Every step “before” and “after” goes back to the motive, the crime syndicate, the plan, the payoffs, the seizures and dispossessions.

Reducing the Auto-Determination of Nations Requires the Plan

To reduce the “auto-determination of nations practised in past centuries” for the “supranational sovereignty of an intellectual and banker elite” could only be made possible through “full spectrum dominance” on the ground as the Project for the New American Century had independently explained, and “the catastrophic and catalyzing event” required was “9-11”, however it was accomplished.

Nicholas Rockefeller was already speaking of “the plan” eleven months before the “9-11” call for emergency help when he said to his close friend, Aaron Russo: “There's going to be an event Aaron...We are going to go into Afghanistan so we can put a gas pipeline to the Caspian Sea...We are going to go into Iraq to take the oil and to establish a base in the Middle East and we're going to go into Venezuela and try and get rid of Chávez - - -Through it, you fight the War on Terror and then you go into Iraq - - the media can convince everybody that it's real - -” [35] Lest the reader doubt this witness, it has nowhere been disavowed any more than the patriarch’s disclosure of “the plan” itself which is also available on the right-wing Cato Institute website. All express?the underlying but observable moral law of motion of this ruling value system - to acquire maximally more money demand for private use and control with no public or other barrier across internal and external borders by war, trade treaty or any other means whatever the sacrifice of others’ lives. They do not count in the calculus. All life is an “externality”. There is no step of the covert U.S. state that does not obey the formula.

The legality of international treaty was and remains the transnational legal method already established in the decade before 9-11 to provide the supranational framework of private transnational money-sequence rule as the moral absolute to which all conformed. Coded as “the global free market”, it is neither free nor a market, but oligopolist corporate control of supply, demand, and inert-state policy. In fact, the supreme morality as defined overrides all economic interests themselves by absolute protection of private transnational “profit opportunity” alone -with thousands of regulations across borders governed by this moral absolute. This too is testable by examination of the articles of any transnational trade treaty in the NATO control zone. Policy structures follow in line. Tax, financial, natural resource and investment policies are structured by law and right to ignore all destruction of social and natural life and life capital bases to grow transnational private money sequences to limitlessly more. This is why the self-multiplying money sequencing with no committed life function has expanded in accordance with this moral absolute through and after “9-11”. Observe how the ultimately regulating principles of value prescription and description all conform to one axiological syntax across controllable theoretical, economic, political, and other levels of the global system. [36]

Thus whatever the world uprisings against it and however destructive of the planet’s social and ecological life bases, this law of motion remains the ruling constant. Not even the life impoverishment of the growing majority and the collapsing of the biosphere itself are allowed to modify its supranational ruling form. Even a tenth of one percent tax on its ruinous money-sequence tides or fraction of legal tender to back them is off-limits. Not only 9-11 itself, but global policy locks of every kind are the expressions of this ruling moral absolute as inviolable and supreme, however much they destroy people’s lives without any committed life function - the normalization of private-bank compound-interest debts bleeding peoples dry, destabilizing speculations in sovereign currencies and bonds, asset-stripping buyouts and disemploying mergers, predatory repossessions of homes and loan-shark rates on poor debtors including college students with no limit, endless takeovers of productive firms by foreign multinationals with only banknotes, ecologically devastating mega-projects and loot-mining with no environmental or social criteria, lethal armaments manufacture led by bribery for sales to despots, Wall Street intermediations in every project with no life commitment, huge hauls of financial lifeblood from?public privatizations to equity capital multiplying outside of securities regulations, stock-market derivatives exploiting fabricated money-sequence tides and futures at the cost of hundreds of millions more hungry people, and - in general - limitless corporate predation of societies’ domestic resources, home markets, worker pay and benefits, and public tax revenues. With all regulating life standards thus erased and repelled, a direct question arises: Why would the sacrifice of a few thousand mixed-nation people and two iconic buildings count against this covert value calculus if it reaped the world in payoff to the under one percent and could always be blamed on the Enemy to achieve even more full-spectrum dominance of the ultimate objective over all life and life systems that limit its growth and universalization?

Conversely, and in particular at the geostrategic armed force level, if any society does not yet fit into the world system as function of it, armed invasion can now follow as “defense against the terrorists” who have “attacked America” in 9-11. As U.S. General Wesley Clark has also reported for the public record, this strategic line of war has been explicit in “U.S. defense” strategic planning for Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Iran, and Syria since 9-11.

The Ruling Group-Mind:

The Official Conspiracy Theory, the Free Press, and the 9-11 Turn

At first I thought the “9-11” event was merely allowed to happen like Pearl Harbour. But the facts showed that only U.S. capacities could explain the logistics of the otherwise physically impossible execution of the crime - from the near free-fall acceleration of the fire-proofed buildings into their footprints and the absence, inaccessibility and removal of evidence, to the detailed police-state law ready to apply.

On the other hand, some evidence, such as the F.B.I. reports not followed up on and the many people led to believe beforehand that there was a foreign plane attack coming, ensured that people were ready to believe that only an alien conspiracy could explain the event. Moral outrage would be directed at jihadist Arabs and at U.S. intelligence and defense forces for not doing enough in time. In fact, this was the very scenario proposed before 9-11 by the man who came to be the head of the 9-11 Commission.

But the immediate historic transformation of the powers of the Bush Jr. administration was the most dramatic effect of the 9-11 event. Its apotheosis of power from near political dead-end to master saviour and superpower leader above question was mythical in proportions. It completely reversed the rising public smell of corruption from Enron, the biggest financial backer of Bush Jr., which was then imploding as a giant energy-futures crime that had bankrupted California. It reversed the unprecedented illegitimacy of a president by stolen election and vote repression who had a record of alcohol and cocaine addiction and cultural illiteracy. It diverted all eyes from the inside-dealing of federal oil and energy policy being determined by oligopolist corporations with V-P Cheney behind closed doors and from financial scandals whose records were destroyed by the WTC collapse. The metamorphosis of the Bush Jr. administration from national disgrace to exalted and limitless command was the most miraculous reversal of fortune in political history. But it received no press or political attention. It was if the past had never happened but disappeared down the memory hole.

In fact, it was taboo to identify the one-way benefits. The mutation of Bush Jr., hiding out on his Texas estate for months after the 2000 lost-but-won election, to an all-powerful “War President” overnight had a staggering effect on the rapidly rising international and domestic opposition against the illegal president. The Nixon-age Cheney-Rumsfeld duo as revolving-door CEO’s in charge of a new supranational program of war was unlikely to get much support before 9-11. But it was now in full-spectrum motion with “terror alerts” around the clock as justification for martial laws and formerly unacceptable invasions. Overnight the strategic objectives of the PNAC vaulted into absolute power across borders, and the Bush oil-military-and-money party was the sole beneficiary in the U.S. The rapid slide downwards in financial security of the 99% was not worthy of comment. The social security of public programs was in line for still more attacks. Bush’s extreme-right conviction that the Roosevelt New Deal was “an aberration” he wanted to eliminate was not mentioned. Instead, in perfect convenience, all field of meaning was occupied by “the terrorist threat” and how to war against it.

Cui bono? - the first forensic question at any murderous crime - shouted from every circumstance and consequence. But it was unspeakable in public. The “war administration” could do and did anything it chose - from privatizing the military to putting everyone on terror alerts to torture chambers across continents to a rule of fear in the U.S. the like of which had never been seen before. Most of all, the supreme moral goal and the covert U.S. state were released from any question or impediment. Everything that happened after 9-11 was consistent with them and the known plan of “full spectrum dominance”. As Brzezinski and the PNAC had themselves observed beforehand, the plan had not been politically feasible then. Now the supreme value objective had its moving war machine in action into the Middle East and Central Asia. A supranational police state was being formed at home and abroad to “protect America’s interests” - in particular the oil-energy bases the private transnational money-sequence system and its armed forces ran on. [37]

It looked remarkably like fascism being built after the Reichstag Fire in 1930’s Germany. [38] In fact I later debated Michael Albert on Z-Net on this institutional analogue when he and his illustrious friend Noam Chomsky were dismissing 9-11 “conspiracy theory” along with the media - not noticing that the ultimate conspiracy theory was the official one which was refused examination. But I took the Albert-Chomsky argument at its word, and argued that the “9-11” event was institutional all the way down and had a disturbing precedent in the last fascist turn of the West including Bush’s grandfather as a Nazi money man through the Union Banking Corporation. Albert might as well not have read a word. {{ref|39)) Everyone on the U.S. Left as well as Right seemed to be of one mind - the “ruling group-mind”. Its nature is blocking against all reason and fact. [39]

The official conspiracy theory of 9-11 was a paradigm of the group-mind phenomenon and the media unspeakable at once. Only others could have a “conspiracy theory”. The official theory was final fact, although the most implausible conspiracy theory of all. Locked in the thrall of the group-mind, even a strictly legal meaning of a central category of criminal law - a criminal conspiracy, prosecuted all the time in the U.S. - was now taboo in connection to 9-11. No scientific finding is allowed through this mind-lock. A closed Orwellian circle is constructed. All not believing the official conspiracy theory are reverse-accused as believers in a conspiracy theory. The official conspiracy theory is, simultaneously, assumed as the opposite of what it is. Double-think - holding contradictory thoughts in the mind as the same in meaning - is normalized as given. Such is the ruling group-mind on 9-11.

The supreme moral objective and its strategic planning depend on this reverse operation and its group-mind cement to succeed. It is a deep psychological disorder that is not decoded, but is invariably used in the larger disorder of which it is a signature pathology. As the individual liar relies on a defense mechanism of aggressive accusation to switch the tables to protect and advance his own interests, so too at the covert state and corporate media level. Ruling group-mind, reverse-accusation operation, and the ruling interests they serve all seamlessly interlock. The conditioning is so pervasive it succeeds in being experienced as an act of individual belief with no option. Because the mass media’s lights of publicity fall only on what is consistent with the official conspiracy theory and attack all that does not conform to the ruling story, the mechanism of delusion is locked in.

This is why payroll journalists who otherwise seem progressive abuse those who see through the delusion- in part because they are hired not to think beneath the hook of selling copy; partly because exposing the moral truth on 9-11 is a fast way to get isolated inside any corporate milieu; and, most basically, because stepping outside of the ruling group-mind on any life-and-death matter brings anathema and perhaps social annihilation. When we recognise these constraints on free inquiry, we had better understand why so many who are normally not duped by official cover stories shy away from forensic and causal understanding of 9-11. They sustain the group-mind morale across parties inside the bonds of the absurd. This is why almost no-one would follow through the motive and causal investigation of the most important single event of the era.

In the end, one worries about English-speaking culture’s incapacity to think about the perpetual war and dispossession system of which 9-11 is a track-switch override of prior blocks to the supreme value objective. Total control of world human and natural resources and their organisation for the transnational money-sequence system has been vastly advanced by 9-11 to crush all human rights standing in the way, from habeas corpus and due process to protection from war-criminal aggression to seize other societies’ most basic sovereign means of production. The carcinogenic disorder advances from strength to strength, recurring at another level in the “financial 9-11” of 2008. It even more centrally dispossesses the world to serve the “supranational sovereignty” of private money-sequence world rule with no committed life function. Behind them both lies the ultimately regulating supreme value system which cumulatively overruns and devours world life and life means as its globalizing feeding cycle. Observe that every step of the global world corporate-rights system conforms. [40]

At the level of the 9-11 process itself, the primary oil-war-and-banking beneficiaries of 9-11 and the 9-11 wars profit hugely, however ruinously - all in accordance with prior invocation of “a catastrophic and catalyzing event” to enable just what has happened. Leading the fall of the rule of life-protective state and law is the complete erasure of the first forensic questions of all criminal investigation - greatest motive and benefit, capacity to commit the crime, concealment of facts, and continuous false reports. Each and all remain effectively stricken from the record of the “free press” and all official accounts.

From Inside Experience of the 9-11 Machine of Denial to Laying Bare the Moral Program

Shortly after September 11, 2001, I spoke on invitation by Science for Peace on the coming Afghanistan invasion after “9-11”. It was a packed hall at the University of Toronto, and I raised the issues as well as I then could, focusing on the criminal war preparation and the evidence of pretext and falsehood. I must have been the only one to speak out in a public forum at that time because all the major media were immediately denouncing me across borders. The Wall Street Journal called me Osama McMurtry. The New York Times blog-hated me. Fox News ranted. The Globe and Mail wrote editorials of fierce if inane indignation from John Ibbitson (twice) and Margaret Wente. The eminent neo-Darwinian Michael Ruse wrote a letter of condemnation from a Florida university joining the flood of e-mails to the department chair and the university president demanding my head.

The moral constant across variations was absolute refusal to engage a fact or inference, militant attack on any questions, and - as always - reversal of value meaning. The perfect unreason was as paradigmatic as in any rush to war for ruling interests. One could understand why people stopped thinking. Barry Zwicker was the only journalist I knew next to Alex Jones who took on the 9-11 machine of reversal and suppression, although even he would not dare the concept of “official conspiracy theory”. He was accused of “anti-Semitism” by a noted left economist for linking Mossad to the 9-11 event. [41] My friend Mathew Stanton, a long time executive of Chicago Media Watch, law professor and effective unbeliever in the official conspiracy theory, was attacked in front of his home by a riot-armed policeman macing him through his front door. The bigger picture was and remains, however, more sinister than any of its parts. The “war presidency” of the money-oil-and-weapons party was released into “limitless capital accumulation” and “supranational sovereignty” with no inhibitors left. No-one named the official conspiracy theory which featured amateurs with box-cutters leading a central air-space attack over hours with no intervention, no evidence of their identity at the scene of the crime, and fire-tested steel frame buildings turning in seconds into fine dust and piles of steel — the remains removed before examination. [42] Least of all did critical analysis link the crime back to the ruling value system driving every step before, through and after it.

Of course, many brave and intelligent people came forward. Hundreds of experts have courageously reported from every relevant domain and stood through all the reverse projections of “conspiracy theorist” and smear attacks. But the moral through-line before, during and after 9-11 to the 9-11 Wars was not itself decoded as a perfectly consistent inner logic and decision string confirmed at every step. Even the classic critical study of 9-11, The New Pearl Harbour, never comes to grips with the supreme value system behind the covert state continuously expressing it before and after 9-11. Indeed, the governing moral meaning is reversed by the title of the book, an exonerating phrase used by Brzezinski and the PNAC itself. When David Griffin and I were in correspondence about the book before publication, I brought this moral reversal to his attention. I emphasised that Roosevelt’s foreknowledge of the 1941 attack was used to fight against international fascism, not to institute it. Moreover the attacks were opposite in source -one from the other side of the earth, and the other from the inside. The very opposite moral motives and methods were equated by even the heroic David Griffin. Such is the block against 9-11 truth and the power of the group-mind field of meaning.

The descriptor of “false flag operation” is favoured by the 9-11 truth movement since. But it refers only to the moral cover of “the flag”. It does not decode the supreme moral driver itself, or the covert meaning of “the flag”, or the value logic of “U.S. interests”, or the plan in motion, which all express one interlocked ruling value program. What joins the covert U.S. state to the global monopolist money sequences it serves in 9-11 as the new criminal-state axis is lost in contending against the ruling story.

Unlike prior moral pretexts for war the U.S. has long specialized in, the 9-11 pretext has distinct markings of its moral code - the life-blind absolutism of the ruling value program which lawlessly serves the rich at the rising cost of the growing majority and their life conditions becoming poorer. Unlike former constructed pretexts, 9-11 serves only U.S global corporate and bank feeding cycles to unlimitedly more human dispossession for more private money demand for the under 1% . Unlike prior false pretences, it simultaneously diverts from the unprecedented crises of system-propelled depredation, looting and pollution of organic, social and ecological life fabrics and bases. The cancer pattern is plain, but unthinkable.

Meanwhile the worst was unfolding into the war-criminal bombing of Iraq on the fabricated basis of “weapons of mass destruction”. During the great child massacre after 1991, I was in close contact with physician Dr. Allan Connolly of Vancouver who at his own considerable expense flew back and forth reporting the medical horrors of the Iraq bombing “sanctions” amidst (his words) “a medical care system of doctors and advanced knowledge comparable to our own”. Just before the next genocidal onslaught on Iraq in 2003, I received an invitation from CBC Television to debate a proponent of the U.S. position. A woman U.S. professor - middle-aged, quiet, and in the mode of the ruling group-mind - had been on the week before explaining why a U.S. invasion fully qualified as “Just War” in Christian and legal doctrine. It was the CBC Sunday Night News Hour three days before the bombing began, and the debater for the U.S. administration position was Thomas Donnelly, “a senior fellow of the Project for the New American Century and policy head of the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services”, with special expertise in post-Soviet U.S. strategic interests and modern military campaign planning. To make a long story short, he emphasized “how America had saved freedom in Europe” and how America only seeks peace, while I emphasized “the nature of the crime of war you are advocating” with definitions, and the mass homicide of children the previous U.S. attack on Iraq had engineered.

I thought I had decisively shown the problems none would talk about on the media anywhere, or allow to be said in published correspondence - even the London Guardian in which I had often published. Canada was not involved that I could see, and surely what I defined verbatim in the law is what public broadcasting should be pleased to communicate. But the CBC re-assigned the reporter who had arranged for me to debate, effectively firing him in the longer term — he was unwilling ever to talk to me about it, and CBC has scrubbed the debate from its records - although Canada was officially not part of the “coalition of the willing” to commit war crime. [43]

We see here that not even the 9-11 Wars could be opposed although demonstrably the “supreme crime” under law. The international criminal law itself, stemming from the Nuremburg Charter to “prevent wars of aggression” that caused the greatest war destructions of all time, was now unspeakable in the “Free World” too. The supreme crime under the law of the community of nations could not be spoken even in a country purporting not to participate in it. The speech act itself was treated as an offence.

What could possibly account for such overriding of life-protective law, millions of peoples’ lives, and life value itself? Was it another holocaust of the Semitic? What could explain the criminal acts of more mass murder? Only an overriding moral commitment makes it logically possible.

The Supreme Moral Program Behind the Life-Blind Mechanism of Full-Spectrum Rule

The ultimate moral absolute expressed by the 9-11 operation is a meta program across U.S. wars. But 9-11 moved the level of strategic permission for U.S. invasions and aggression to a new level - including indiscriminate kidnap and torture of citizens across borders and non-stop rising murders by drones today. It has also enlisted from U.S. unemployment the bravest and most desperate young people. By their actions to enforce the supreme morality, the criminal and covert U.S state serves the private transnational money-sequence multiplication system.

Thus since 9-11, tens of thousands of innocent peoples across borders have been murdered, tortured, and caged in the name of “stopping the terrorists”. Police state methods have become normalized as “necessary to defend the Free World against terrorism”. Reverse projection is the moral constant of confusion. Erasure of fact and record is now selectively commonplace.

This is anticipated. Air travellers across the world are therefore subjugated to confiscation of water to drink and airline search and seizure by orders from the top. These may seem merely absurd system oppressions, but they subjugate individuals at the most basic level of their lives - clothes, water, shoes, personal privacy, and juridical identity. All using air-travel are now subject to this system’s law - with caging or shooting for defiance - the systematic strip-down

required as reinforcement of the absurd U.S. official conspiracy doctrine of 9-11.

At the same time a stream of laws, regulations and acts under ever new names of defense and security reverse ancient constitutional rights back to the Magna Carta -essentially enabling presidential-directive assassination at will, worse than before the curb of kings. This is the great reversal 9-11 made normatively justifiable so that CEO prime can do as the most dominant transnational money sequences demand. People are now subject to death on suspicion of “terrorist activity” without any due process - as the drone murders and application of the laws enabling them to U.S. citizens demonstrate. Here as well every step has been made possible by and legally confirms the official conspiracy theory.

The real threats to global life security are greater than ever before - an ever greater majority without secure livelihoods, the disappearance of meaningful work and social life supports systems, and the cumulative poisoning and looting of the bases of planetary life itself. But all are diverted by the manufactured wars and the “terrorist” reverse projection to grow the system of dispossession wider and deeper. This is the real global terror system. Meanwhile the new designated “Enemy” that bonds “the Free World” is, in fact, assisted through covert funding, arms, and direct participation in its acts of terror against our freedoms to sustain the multiple-payoff war games. All is permitted by the legal and illegal elaborations of criminal permission and secret presidential directives that have become written into the rogue U.S. state as the Leviathan of the U.S. corporate rich, the “fascism at home” as Roosevelt called it.

The ultimate cover story of the supreme moral objective in “the new American century” has been 9-11 in whose “catalyzing event” all regime and system motives of self-aggrandisement dissolve. What else but such an event could have so armoured the sole beneficiaries of the “new world order” against social fightback at the great stripping of nations’ and peoples’ life and life means across the world? All the while in accord with the unexamined supreme value system, big bank and corporate money sequences override social and natural life support systems everywhere more than ever to record ever higher profits as everyone else is dispossessed in proportion to how little they have. 2008 redoubles and deepens the process of stripping life fabrics to grow money sequences behind the permanent war front that 9-11 has provided. Now greater tides of public funds pour out to the private bank system in the trillions across borders, “austerity programs” pay back the banks for the bailouts of them, and ever fewer rights to oppose are ensured by post-9-11 police state methods. The pre-2001 rising and unarmed global insurgency of the civil commons for peace, for social life security, for human rights, for real food, for protection of the environment, for everything that has been dispossessed by the supranational corporate rights system has been rolled over by the 9-11 turn.

2001 was the turning point after unilateral transnational corporate rights over markets and resources were established as absolute over legislatures through the 1990’s with a rising tide of global opposition joining into all movements to protect and enable human and natural life against the eyeless transnational money-sequence juggernauts of immiserization. 9-11 was strategically ideal to stop the human tides of awakening and common action because it ruled out all political resistance to the supreme moral goal. But the dots are not joined back to the ultimate value program even by 9-11 unbelievers. Attention has become fixed, rather, on the foreground operations and contradictions with the official conspiracy doctrine - all crucial as anomaly detections, but not yet grounded in opposing moral systems. What is required is logico-moral understanding of the institutional act of 9-11 as strategically rational from the regulating value system of global money-sequence rule. This is the ultimately ruling moral disorder, and it instrumentalizes and attacks human and natural life and life support systems to grow itself with no limit or regulation by life requirements. 9-11 embodies and exemplifies the supreme moral program in action to full spectrum control, consumption and profit by force of arms wherever it can. But its inner axiology evades recognition. Its agents no more examine or question it than the players of a kill-all video game. And its opponents have not penetrated its meta program or the principled life-ground to steer beyond it at the system level.

The multiple motive for every step, the supreme value system driving every one, the strategic logic of fulfilment, and the 9-11 track-switch promoting all are perfectly consistent with each other. But their unifying meaning and progression across every moment of execution as a moral system in action has not been laid bare. Social taboo against recognising life-blind disorder in the surrounding system of rule is as old as human tribes and civilisations, but never so global and deep-structural as now. While the Right never stops talking of “moral anchor”, “moral compass”, and “principled stands”, the ultimate value system at work is no more critically examined in its life-blind principles than the wars it propels. Neither Left nor Right has cracked the life code and the money code at war which determines the fate of the planet. [44]

Joining the Dots of Forensic History: Who Benefits from 9-11?

From day one of the 9-11 event, the question of cui bono - “who benefits?” - has been nowhere posed in official Western culture. Even as insults rain on those repudiating the official conspiracy theory, the question is not named. The suspicion of an “inside job” idea is now widespread outside the corporate media, but not even the Left poses the forensic questions nor recognises the official conspiracy theory as the essential cover-up of them. Nowhere have the defining questions been joined into unified meaning and value frame. Who had the most compelling motives for the event? Who alone had the means? Who removed all the evidence from the crime scenes? Who put out continuous false reports? Who blocked all impartial inquiry? Who has solely benefitted since in private money-sequencing to limitlessly more?

This defining set of forensic questions remains effectively taboo, and the crime is least of all connected back to the ruling value system now more supreme in power than ever. After 9-11 a presidency primarily funded and campaign-transported by Enron swindle money and “Kenny-Boy” Lay as the “asset-light” leader of the new energy futures market now running the world was the first meaning to disappear from sight. Another was Dick Cheney presiding over a closed energy policy-making committee deciding the laws, regulations and subsidies to govern the big-oil and utility oligarchy in total conflict of interest. Then there were major financial charges and lawsuits by government in action whose records were destroyed on 9-11.

But the most immediately compelling motive for the event was the fatal lack of legitimacy of the Bush. Jr. presidency itself. There was an unprecedentedly wide public contempt across borders for the unqualified president, his election by cancelled votes, the loaded Supreme Court blocking the votes from being counted, and the tanking of the U.S. economy, which had shown its first signs of permanent recession. This recession was led by the very policies of hollowing out aggregate demand that the Bush Jr. administration was pushing hard on - ever more reduced taxes on the rich, slashed and defunded social programs, privatization of public pensions, and the erasure of labour rights as freedom - still going hard today. All the trends were downwards, all were led by the supreme moral goal of the money party, and peoples across borders were resisting as never before. How, I wondered before 9-11, can this rising tide of global resistance be contained?

In fact, it was reversed in under a day. Bush Jr. went from disgrace to apotheosis. The “war president” and his cabal were now suddenly astride the U.S. and the world with absolute powers. Before “9-11”, one could not see how the rising global peace, anti-corporate and environmental movements could be stopped with no plausible Enemy to anchor the ruling ideology and its policies of public dispossession. Even America’s corporate economy was increasingly unable to compete with societies not being bled by Wall Street and armaments-spending. All the while life support bases beneath were in slow-motion collapse towards the New Orleans mass destruction of the poor to come.

Three weeks before the 9-11 event, an over one-million strong demonstration of people across Europe erupted in Genoa against the U.S.-led global corporate system in which NATO flew warplanes overhead and police attacked hundreds of people as they slept. The billion-dollar-a-day military-industrial complex and the national ideology of war needed a new Enemy to justify it as much as Bush Jr. and his cabal needed it to save them from illegitimacy and impotence. With their primary constituency as big oil, banks and military contractors, control of Middle East and Central Asia oilfields now unblocked with the end of the Soviet Union was essential to the PNAC plan. With its signatories baying for world empire “responsibilities”, the 9-11 explosions of the WTC buildings (the totem of the supranational New World Order planned and financed by David Rockefeller himself) coincidentally occurred as “an act of war on America” by “those who hate our freedoms”. Every motive of the Bush Jr. regime, its oil-war-money constituency and its future was satisfied by the 9-11 action. As a thought experiment, try to conceive of any alternative that could have delivered all at once. Every major private transnational oil, military, and bank constituency was served by the event. Even investors in the corporate media were given a steroid boost. [45]

How could one argue against this strategy for “recovery and extension of America’s vital U.S. interests”? To create the binding crisis of self-defense in war was an already self-evident strategic necessity in the bipartisan spook world. Indeed, perhaps the most remarkable fact of the 9-11 story is that Philip Zelikow, the President of the 9-11 Commission, was the administration strategist who first proposed the 9-11 scenario itself.

More specifically, Zelikow was the executive director of the Aspen Strategy Group whose members included Dick Cheney, Condoleeza Rica, and Paul Wolfowitz. He had been in the National Security Council during the set-up war with Iraq in 1990-91. In 1998, he had the scenario worked out in the same year Brzezinski floated it in his book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. Let Zelikow speak for himself in 1998:

“Readers should imagine the possibilities for themselves, because the most serious constraint on current policy is lack of imagination. An act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people and/or disrupted the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands, or even millions, would be a watershed event in America's history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented for peacetime and undermine Americans' fundamental sense of security within their own borders in a manner akin to the 1949 Soviet atomic bomb test, or perhaps even worse. Constitutional liberties would be challenged as the United States sought to protect itself from further attacks by pressing against allowable limits in surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and the use of deadly force. More violence would follow, either as other terrorists seek to imitate this great ‘success’ or as the United States strikes out at those considered responsible. Like Pearl Harbor, such an event would divide our past and future into a ‘before’ and ‘after.’ The effort and resources we devote to averting or containing this threat now, in the ‘before’ period, will seem woeful, even pathetic, when compared to what will happen ‘after.’ Our leaders will be judged negligent for not addressing catastrophic terrorism more urgently.” [46]

The Necessary Crisis for America and System Erasure of the Facts and their Design

We might infer from Zelikow’s 1998 paper projecting a 9-11 scenario that the rising Washington chatter about a coming plane attack on the WTC and unpursued suspects were part of the strategic plan for precisely the reasons Zelikow gives. “The effort and resources we devote to averting or containing this threat now, in the ‘before’ period”, he says, “will seem woeful, even pathetic, when compared to what will happen ‘after’”. The before-period when nothing was done, and plainly seen not to be done, in fact occurred just as imagined. And it justified to the majority the after-period when the U.S. state merely proclaims “terrorists” non-stop to justify a war rampage to get what it wants in the Middle East and Central Asia. Overriding basic human rights and civil liberties within and without the U.S., the arbitrary mass arrests, serial kidnappings and torture, murders without stop are the means and cover-up methods to ensure the supreme value goal and system into the future.

This criminality on a mass scale seems immoral beyond conception - like the Nazi regime with which the U.S. covert state has had strong ties from the start. On the other hand, all of the plan makers from Rockefeller to Zelikow are only doing what they must for the binding supreme moral goal - U.S. supremacy to serve its ruling global money sequences as the ultimately meaning of “the Free World”. This is the underlying value driver across contending parties. Given the supreme moral goal, the maximizing strategic culture with no limit, and the acceptance of “noble lies” to ensure “free capital accumulation”, what could one say to deter this moral logic of U.S. world rule? Any life-grounded morality would be “soft” and “naive” to the ruling mind-set which glories in “creative destruction”. At the same time, the Bush Jr. regime needed 9-11 as a steering event even more than its “constituency of the rich and the very rich”.

All knew that something must bind the people as their former job and welfare security comes apart under “the New World Order”. The Soviet Union is gone, the whole oil-base region is in flux, another Enemy is required to hold America and the empire together - the last idea coming from the Nazi philosopher Carl Schmitt. The key is to understand the inner moral logic so all the U.S. covert state’s moves become clear within the underlying framework of moral meaning they express. Recognition begins with laying bare the value program behind every move before and after 9-11, and maintaining a stable understanding of physical laws to avoid being taken in by magic-thinking explanations. Magic thinking is endemic to the ruling world-view. It is not only required to believe that the transnational money sequence system necessarily produces the social optimum within “the global free market” - the invisible-hand metaphysic of the market God. [47] It is also required at the microcosm level to believe that jet fuel has reduced fireproofed steelbuildings to mostly dust within 11 seconds. Magic illusions are the stock in trade of the system. They pervade the culture from miracle commodities transforming clothes, faces, status and sex appeal by their purchase to Arabs with box-cutters who reappear alive, having just turned buildings into smithereens in the financial centre of the United States.

Reason thus needs to begin with the self-evident logistics of material plausibility and coherence. At even the level of preparations and immediate effects, only insiders could have access control of all the stations required with ready-made justifications, police-state laws, and evidence destruction in place. If the Arab “hijackers” alleged as guilty without forensic evidence were known guilty, how could they have been left free as covert assets for years except to provide red-herring scent paths. If a cover-up Arab conspiracy was already to go from before 1996 - Project Bojinka for civilian aircraft hijacking and crashing into buildings was already rehearsed by air defense and FEMA - to whom was the attack a surprise? If the blocks on full FBI investigation from the White House were so obstructive that its Director of Anti-Terrorism, John O’Neill, resigned in protest, can it be sheer trillion-to-one coincidence that he started his new position on 9-11 as Director of Security at the Trade Towers and was killed his first day on the job? If WTC Security shut down one week prior to 9-11, as required to wire the building for the types of explosive materials that can alone explain the instant demolition of huge fire-proofed towers, can the event be disconnected from its material cause? If a principal of the firm responsible for security in the Towers, Securacom, was Marvin T. Bush, the president’s younger brother, are not these linkages relevant to comprehending the line of material connections to the crime? [48] Prior to theory, only magical thinking can explain belief in a long string of coincidences, all in accord with one design.

A high-level Bush Republican organiser in Chicago, lawyer David Philip Schippers, telephoned me via Matthew Stanton to advise that try as he might to get the attention of his friend Attorney-General John Ashcroft about the buzz on a coming attack using “commercial airlines as bombs”, the calls were strangely unreturned by Ashcroft despite many tries over a month before 9-11. Ashcroft and top military officers were told not to fly that day. The coincidences multiply the more deeply one looks. The stand-by jets planes that would normally have intercepted the hijacked aircraft within minutes did not because, as we know, Cheney got control of the air-defence of NORAD six months before the event and fighter jets were playing scenario games far away instead. The claimed Boeing 757 jet hitting the Pentagon was not only another physical impossibility due to the “ground factor”, but disappeared into thin air with not even the motor left although it runs at 1800 degrees hot and cannot physically be incinerated. Unprecedented violation of U.S. crime-scene laws then occurred at the materials scene of the collapsed steel-backed WTC buildings with any remains of the metal meltdown and the fine dust of the vaporizing explosion quickly covered with mud, hosed and shipped overseas.

What part of the official conspiracy theory holds at even the level of the physical laws? It is difficult to find one step that does. Rather magical coincidences, transmutations and shell-games proliferate the more carefully the now known facts are examined. In the wider purview of the event, what physically possible executive organisational agency could have been responsible for all the coordinated cover-up and false reports before and after effectively fulfilling one design? All points to the only coherent through-line of 9-11 and this is what is not diagnosed even by critics - the ruling value program and its strategic enactment to which every stitch conforms.

Of course no crime evidence remains if it disappears into thin air, is removed, purely invented, killed, erased from the record, or smeared into non-credible witness. All here has occurred in the 9-11 construction. So known was the set-up coming by insiders that market futures betting on airlines beforehand occurred with an unprecedented imbalance of puts and calls. More magical coincidence. But we can’t find out the facts because the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission has blocked all request for information. “This letter is in response to your request seeking access to and copies of the documentary evidence referred to in footnote 130 of Chapter 5 of the September 11 (9/11) Commission Report. We have been advised that the potentially responsive records have been destroyed” [49]. There are many ways in which the 9-11 cover-up moves, and all seek to erase the steps of the crime and physical evidence of them.

Yet because the official conspiracy theory cannot explain how the inspected fire-proofed steel-frame WTC buildings built to withstand more than jet-fuel heat fell at almost free-fall acceleration and converted into a great cloud of dust at the same time, people rise at the level of professional competence to question the ruling story - they are America’s remaining mind. Thus the 1,600 architectural and engineering professionals, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, observe that the official story cannot explain what are in effect violations of the laws of physics. Only a controlled demolition or its equivalent can explain the buildings’ rapid fall through the path of greatest resistance, the debris being symmetrically distributed, the rapid onset of the buildings’ falls, the explosions and flashes reported by witnesses, the steel elements expelled from the building at high speed, the pulverization of the concrete, the expanding pyroclastic-like clouds, the isolated explosions 20 to 40 stories below the wave of destruction, the molten steel and thermite traces found in recovered debris, and the lack of pancaked stories in the debris. [50]

The Grammar of Delusion, 9-11 Myth and Cooked Corporate Science

From start to finish, federal U.S. agency is stacked against any detection of historical background, character and moral raison d’etre, strength of motives to commit the crime, capacity to execute the physical destruction unimpeded, subsequent vast payoffs to one party, and systematic removal and erasure of all evidence - all tending in one direction only.

That Kissinger was the first choice to lead the 9-11 Commission, a master of the art of the supreme crimes - crimes against peace, planning and waging wars of aggression, war crimes and crimes against humanity - is all of a piece with the rest. That he was to be the chief investigator and judge of the 9-11 crime is almost as revealing as who got the position instead. The man appointed as the Director of the 9-11 Commission was the very man who had designed the 9-11 myth itself. Reverse projection of “conspiracy theory” on all who did not believe it was the master psy-op still at work today warning everyone away from asking questions. But still thinking people do even at the cost of media mobbing and ostracism by the mindless.

So the questions did not stop. Thus the official Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States was eventually put in motion to stop them 441 days after the attack. Observe the “Final”. Certainly the Final Report is dressed in all the official costume of the Government of the United States, seals of approval and authoritative finality to impress readers. This has not worked on the still thinking like David Ray Griffin who has taken the official Final Report apart in books of analysis. But there is in principle only one logical trick that needs to be known to recognise its fallacious nature from start to finish. The Final Report frames the entire inquiry and causation of the event by presupposing the official story as true.That leaves lots of room for “omissions and distortions”, and Griffin has posted them in detail. But the fallacy of presupposing what is supposed to be proved is the meta disorder that is at work everywhere, and this a-priori derangement is not yet clear. More profoundly still, some critics apparently do not notice that the man who had designed the mythic rationale of 9-1l directed the 9-11 Commission itself. I never knew this until I found Zelikow’s once Harvard-posted paper. It reveals the throughline of meaning not seen, as reported in the prior pages of this analysis. Thus not only are physical laws violated by official doctrine at every step required to sustain the official story. Not only are the known laws of forensic, evidence and juridical investigation usurped and suspended throughout. But the very agent who imagined the scenario of the 9-11 official story myth is made the Executive Director of the Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. The mind reels at the supreme confidence in propagating a big lie about a big lie with the major imaginer of both in charge of the official truth. It reveals the totalitarian nature of covert U.S. state rule and the corporate media and political control on which it can rely to turn black white underneath public and critic notice.

Predictably, therefore, one meta operation must regulate all that is reported in the official report. All facts and reasons conflicting with the official conspiracy theory must be and are erased from the official 9-11 Commission as an a priori requirement of its story. That the person in control of the Commission for 9-11 truth is the very author of the 9-11 myth is the logical smoking gun still sometimes omitted from the analysis. Zelikow was the master strategist for how to divert U.S. citizens’ concern from the “detention of suspects and the use of deadly force”. He was thestrategist behind why U.S. state response to the “threat” was so “pathetic” as to allow it to happen - the justification for the police-state legislation and the 9-11 Wars. And he directed the 9-11 Commission of the U.S. government itself to validate the myth as true. In this way, the U.S. administration was exculpated a priori from all the forensic questions that implicated it. Such manipulation of assumptions for war based on myth is and was in fact Zelikow’s long specialty. He was a co-author of the notorious strategy of “pre-emptive war” on the basis of such projections. His academic specialty is in his own words, “the construction and maintenance of public myths - - forming the public’s presumptions about its immediate past”. [51] That the “9-11 Commission” under Zelikow’s direction simply erases the issue of the physical impossibility of the fire-proofed buildings exploding into dust and free-falling into their own footprints thus follows as essential to sustain the official myth. No official version of these facts can stand up to scrutiny, so the standard technique follows. Eliminate the facts. The first step is to blinker them out from the Report altogether, and the second is to eliminate any evidence remaining in the possession of the Zelikow Commission. When request is then made to the Commission for the scientific documents pertaining to the building collapse, the Commission’s response is “the documents have been destroyed”.

To get a sense of the exactitude of the cover-up against all physical evidence, even that which has made its way into the official 9-11 inquiry, the response is meticulously total: “All input and results files of the ANSYS 16-story collapse initiation model with detailed connection models that were used to analyze the structural response to thermal loads, break element source code, ANSYS script files for the break elements, custom executable ANSYS file, and all Excel spreadsheets and other supporting calculations used to develop floor connection failure modes and capacities”.

Erasure of records and evidence is the defining epistemological technique of the covert state, and an annihilative propaganda machine goes into operation when this cannot be done - as in calling the Journal of 9-11 Studies names on an exactly next-door website and sabotaging the Wikipedia entries of critics of the official conspiracy theory. The CIA has fulltime people doing this by its own admission. From war crimes and big lies to attack of reputations of critics, all serves the supreme moral goal of supranational sovereignty of the transnational private money-sequence system and its covert institutional agencies of strategic planning and action. This descriptive law is testable. It is the ultimate value logic of the system, and has manifold expressions across domains. There is no determinism by physical laws here. There are always alternatives that are better so far as they enable rather than destroy human life and life bases. [52]

The ultimate problem is that the ruling money-sequence system has become increasingly totalitarian, and 9-11 has been a turning-point advance against all that stands in its way.

“What about the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) verifying the official account of the building collapses?” the reader might ask. Certainly a public scientific institution accountable to scientific method and open inspection of data and conclusions would better get to the truth of the matter than a 9-11 Commission run by a strategic planner of the covert U.S. state who proposed its very scenario three years before the event. Here, above all, one would have hoped for publicly reliable science that once distinguished U.S. civilization. But in fact, NIST by its own description is a “federal technology agency that works with industry” featuring collaboration in “bio-technology”. Knowing well the corporate-university partnerships in biotech which research only corporate commodity development as “innovative science”, the NIST set-up does not inspire scientific confidence. One method regulates all across fields of communication: to frame out any other result than the desired one while describing the process in exalted terms (e.g., “rigorous scientific standards”).

In this case, the framing-out principle built into the NIST investigation again followed the ruling pattern to erase all relevant evidence in conflict with the official story. In fact this unrecognised principle of evidence repression governs all government and media accounts of the 9-11 crime. Nothing gets through which conflicts with the assumptions of the reigning story of reality. Indeed, there is a rule against recognising this rule as well as against recognising the rule itself. This syntax of thought repression and control is always at work in 9-11 thinking unless thought can break free from the underlying loop of repressive normalization - the essential liberation. No freedom of thought is more important. In the wider commercial and state media, the same system-serving loop is more deeply rooted in the same transnational private money sequence regime. Its supreme and supranational moral goal is the covert ruling subject of the System in all modes. Its underlying grammar of thought is to rule out anything that conflicts with assumption of it as “the Free World”.

While rarely spoken in deep-system terms, this totalizing regulator governs the ruling culture across domains as the ultimate economic/political/normative/speech/thought determiner of truth and value. As a normalized syntax regulates speakers without their awareness of it, so too this regulator. It works because it operates at the level of unexamined ruling assumptions. Zelikow researches and hypothesizes at one level of its hold - “the construction and maintenance of public myths - - forming the public’s presumptions about its immediate past”. This is how he deduced by the “need of imagination” the generic strategy of the 9-11 myth. But unlike philosophy and science, the structure of assumption is not critically exposed, but taken as a political given for manipulation. Freedom from it is not sought.

Yet materials science and technology in service to the system must perform at a different professional level. They must appear to be upholding the obligations of scientific method and not cooking conclusions in accordance with a predetermined story or value program. Cooked corporate science has become, however, the transnational norm, and it works by exactly ensuring that all test results but the profitable ones are kept secret as “proprietary information”. Not even public regulators get to see them. Since the National Institute of Standards and Technology is “partnered with industry”, it does not challenge the ruling value program any more than corporate researchers do. But how can NIST specifically explain the collapse of the fireproofed WTC towers to get the results that support the official story and still remain scientific? This seems an impossible task until one recognises the ruling meta assumption across domains which frames out all inconsistent data a priori.

The NIST follows in line by eliminating the time period within which all the physical phenomena conflicting with the ruling myth occur - namely, the period of time during which the buildings explode into dust and iron-rich microspheres and so on, and then fully collapse at free-fall acceleration. Instead NIST attends solely and exclusively to the prior time of the planes hitting the buildings and of “collapse initiation”. If it does this, it appears to be “scientific” while in fact it is the opposite by exclusion of the most relevant data.

Once again we see the underlying rule of repressive elimination at work. All that can conflict with the official story is erased - not merely by mass removal, seizure or destruction of evidence, but by blocking out the very time frame within which the explosions, outward projectiles, and total collapse occurred. The conclusion (the planes did it) is thus already built into the first premise of the investigation (investigate the impact of the planes and the initiation of destruction, but not the full period of destruction). Once again we discern the master pattern of lie and delusion.

Logically speaking, it is the ancient fallacy of petitio principii - assuming what is required to be proved in the pseudo proof of it. Here the vicious circle is dressed in technological-scientific uniform. Yet the false explanation deserves more detailed analysis because the technology of the 9-11 explosions has become so central to the 9-11 truth movement. [53] In the NIST’s impressive methodological description of why it would cost $40 million to do the job, it includes (direct quote) “the expense of stockpiling the steel and other debris [the few bits retained by FEMA and volunteers]; examining the steel; physically testing the steel; partial parametric computer modeling of the steel, the fire, the plane and the blast; and the examination of egress issues”. For this highly profitable price (emphases added), “tools could be developed to address fire as a structural design load and to understand the behavior of structural connections under fire conditions.” As the italics show, fire alone is already assumed as the cause of the buildings’ explosion and free-fall against all the evidence to the contrary. This evidence is ruled out a priori by focus on the fire alone - an assumption that locks out all the relevant facts showing that fire alone cannot explain the buildings’ collapse in seconds, the severing of massive fireproof steel columns, the ejecting of steel assemblies, the melted-down metal in and around the explosion, and conversion of fire-proof buildings into fuming remains and dust. In short, all the evidence contradicting the official story is erased by the NIST account by its starting frame of reference, which blocks it all out a-priori.

In this way, the NIST too assumes the official story in investigating it, and remains locked within the same vicious circle as the 9-11 Commission - only this time by cooked science. Nothing is allowed in except the impact of the planes and the fires. No simulations of the full collapses are ever made, and every physical moment of the collapses after “collapse initiation” is disappeared. With models and computer simulations cooked in this way, the NIST fixes against the evidence with the same trick of erasure as the 9-11 Commission at another level - from non-investigation to pseudo science. Thus the explanation that is alone consistent with the evidence - controlled demolition [54] - and the evidence are eliminated in the NIST study. Predictably, no media report one step of the structure of delusion, the supreme interests in sustaining it, or the real science of explaining the suppressed facts. Thus the duped are led to believe that science supports the accepted account.

We may witness here the collapse of logic and scientific method along with the collapse of the buildings. The ruling syntax of value and delusion demolishes reason at many levels. It did not end there. Once the real scientific community started asking questions of the NIST report, led by the 1700-strong group of architect and engineering professionals, Architects & Engineers for 9-11 Truth, NIST further blocked against disclosing any of the features of controlled demolition exhibited by the collapses. Then it altered its website findings to prevent direct access to the evidence. The final 2005 report on the WTC Towers then completed the cover-up. It changed the topic away from the WTC building collapses altogether to “improving building and occupant safety” in “disaster prevention”. If one did not follow all the steps, one would not believe the systemic fraud driven in one direction at every level.

When logic and scientific method are themselves suspended by the U.S. National Institute of Technology and Standards, we may observe a derangement deeper than 9-11 itself - the collapse of U.S. scientific civilization at its official core. And it is, as demonstrated, for no interests in the end but the less than 1%. One cannot help but think of the medieval Church refusing to look through Galileo’s telescope before the scientific revolution had occurred.

The Invisible Value Program Behind All: Who is Responsible in the End?

On a wider system level, displacing responsibility onto victims is the defining reversal operation, and pseudo-science is the highest authority of public relations. Throughout, institutional agency remains the ultimate anomaly of moral thought. The deciding “institutional agency” at work here consists of

1. the transnational money sequence system lying behind all that is happy-masked as “the global market” and “the Free World”, and
2. the covert U.S. state and allies in enforcing and extending its rule as their pre-emptively organizing mission.

These are the macro organising and coercive forms of the larger rule system that is responsible along with the planner and executive deciders of 9-11, the 9-11 Wars, the police-state laws, and the criminal U.S. state in motion. As with Nazism, the morally responsible are the builders and beneficiaries of the institutionalized criminal system and state and its executive agents which all could have chosen otherwise. They are guilty as in any crime to the extent of their deciding agency in life-destructive acts and evil to the extent of their profit or power from them.

Yet moral philosophies themselves are locked into the roles and functions of this global system as in other domains. They blinker out a priori all that is inconsistent with its surrounding rule by focusing on anything else but the life-destructive disorder of this rule. This is why you will not find in any mainstream moral or even political philosophy any critical engagement with the organizing money-sequence principle itself. Direct censorship or terror, however, does not perform the silencing function in the developed West. Modern atomic-agency method does it beneath anyone’s notice. In modern ethics, economics, and law there are only individual agents of acts and their consequences - “agent-relative ethics”, “market consumer theory”, “investors”, and so on. Institutionalized moral agency is thus a terra nullius of second-order thought.

We have seen the consequences of this atomic-individual understanding of ruling systems. It blinkers them out of view in principle. It is because of these built-in blinkers that corporate and state institutions can represent the private interests of limitlessly self-maximizing money sequences and wars to advance them as the highest good with no-one able to define or even see the system evil. It is also why strategic plans to construct new crises and scenarios to advance this “supranational sovereignty” on the ground with “noble lies” and millions of victims can go on endlessly without recognition of the criminal disorder that has been constructed.

This is the utmost evil that occurs in the human condition, but is not yet drawn out. Many heroic thinkers have tried over 3000 years, and all have succeeded up to a point. Victims always include children and innocent people horribly dying or suffering in large numbers. The ruling group and self identity issues may ultimately be as Freud recognised “the narcissism of small differences” in private passions and conceptions. On the life-ground, however, they are about whether the greedy get more and the people less - the ever mutating form of evil in the world at the system level. The exceptions make human history.

Unhappily the proven nature of the covert U.S. state has ever increasingly been to serve the ruling transnational bank and corporate system as “America’s fundamental interests and freedom”. 9-11 has been the system’s track-switch turn to more and faster without limit of law, and all peoples within its imperium, including its own, grow poorer in life and life means. The covert U.S. system’s powers in particular become an effective reign of terror against all resistant societies and life to enforce and extend transnational money-sequence rule. 9-11 re-sets the parameters of rule to imprison, kidnap, kill and invade other countries at will where they cannot fight back. All the constituents of the 9-11 criminal action itself are there without the dots joined - supreme moral goal, ultimately compelling motives, sufficient means and logistic places required for the action, established character and behaviours to perpetrate it as maximally rational for U.S. interests, declared necessity for a crisis-initiating action to defend and advance lawless regime expansion, continuous public cover-up, lies and alibis to avoid detection of the meaning, and most self-evident the unprecedented magnitude of payoffs at every level reversing prior disadvantageous positions.

At the level of institutional payoffs to the ruling transnational private money sequences of the U.S. as global system, the payoffs have not only been reaped, but have continued the dispossession of the world for money-party gains within and across borders. All of this can only occur if the underlying goal, motives, strategic methods, life costs and ruling value system joining across them are blocked from logical, economic, legal and moral examination. A methodological prison has been so built around 9-11 to repel rational examination that even the Left itself has become largely gagged. This certainly abets the 9-11 myth and its consequences, and may be their necessary condition. But it is not enough to sustain them. There must also be strategic construction of the story to sell across the masses as public relations experts know. This is why we can observe the consistent drive to block, to mislead, to cover up, to destroy evidence, to falsify reports - already known tactics in the corporate public relations world to defend the saleability of harmful products. For the truth in this system is what sells.

Yet despite the ruling group-mind that has been constructed across Left and Right on 9-11, the truth still exists and the rational and scientific question still insists. What fact of 9-11 disconfirms any step of the diagnosis here? I have long looked for one and asked others to join me on all sides, but none has found anything reliable to disconfirm the moral and causal analysis. Only diversion, rhetorical bombast and reverse projection contend against the evidence and design, but they remain rigorously consistent in meaning and value through every step. In fact, what showed the diagnosis as too severe would be welcome to me as to others. For example, one clearly disconfirming fact to the covert-state’s manufacture of 9-11 and the 9-11 Wars would be an independent and impartial inquiry to investigate the full crime with subpoena powers, legal and evidential staffs and critical judicial investigation not wired into the covert-state system - as with the far lesser crime of Watergate. This is the primary test as well of whether the U.S. can recover civilised bearings. But of course nothing has been more blocked, abused and falsified than such independent inquiry into 9-11.

What is most disturbing to a sense of justice in examination of the facts, reasons and moral goals of 9-11 is that not one power of money or command has been evidently lost instead of gained for those who have benefitted from the crime. Lead Halliburton and Rockefeller interests, for example, are richer and fed more from the public purse than ever before. The morally incensed might respond: “But the U.S. as a nation has never recovered. Its economy has continued downhill, and it has become loathed across the world. The 9-11 culture of 1% grab with impunity has gone onto Wall Street-9-11 with America hollowed out and its youth without a future.” Yet none at the top of the transnational money-sequence-and war feeding cycle has evidently lost out. The criminal U.S. state and its ruling constituency of the corporate rich has only gained and gained spectacularly in their value terms.

Understanding the Criminal U.S. State and its Agents in Principle and Bearing

As long as demonstrable schemes of war, mass murder, terror, big lies, and dispossession of people’s livelihoods and means of life evade examination as an absolutist value program, the life-devouring system grows on undecoded. Moral and intellectual superiority remains assumed so long as it succeeds - the pathological closed circle. A clue was long ago given to me by Allen Bloom in the Closing of the American Mind, a work I then defined as Bloom’s “best-selling sycophancy to the rich” with its coded argument that only the rich are entitled to a higher education. This diagnosis was not answered and Bloom soon left this world. Yet the bluff of the “intellectual elite” of this system is worth unpacking because the disorder depends on its high-born appearance to others. The neo-con “philosopher king” of the criminal U.S. state, so-called by his disciples and the press, is Leo Strauss. Yet in fact Strauss is a German 1930’s U.S. import, sought post-doctoral candidature with the great Paul Tillich, but was rejected and saved by Rockefeller funds to come to America. (He also earlier tried to correspond with the Nazi theorist Carl Schmitt without success). Dick Cheney is lionized as a great if dark strategic mind, but in fact he failed out of Yale.

The “classical philosophical foundations” of the neo-conservative school are made much of, but there is no evidence that any of them today know anything about philosophy. Strauss taught political science in America as do his disciples, falsifying their claim to “philosophy” as another cloak to hide their ambition and incoherent thinking. The “brilliant Chicago School” led by Milton Friedman propounds the absurd doctrine that government spending creates inflation, while government in fact now creates only 3% of the money supply - the root of America’s economic sickness since the Friedman-led economic counter-revolution. In even more over-blown conceit, the Wall Street money sequencers are called the “masters of the universe”. But they in fact produce nothing, and now only bleed and ruin governments and individuals by perpetual servitude to their debt-servicing demands, manufacture fraudulent securities with impunity to metastasize around the world, lead endless mergers and takeovers for huge fees and profits from stripping them, and casino-bet on stock futures with no function but raising prices (e.g., on basic foods and water to come). Where does it end, the fatuous bluff masking the most globally life-destructive value program in history of which Wall Street, Big Oil and the military-industrial complex are the greatest beneficiaries as well as drivers? [55]

In this moral universe of the very rich and their academic suits, “noble lies” are the pervasive method twisted out of Plato, and lording it over the poor with no limit are the natural right of the masters and capital accumulation - decoded, private money sequences multiplying in transnational corporate aliases, stock vehicles and tax-evasion sites. Yet the pathogenic code does not come from nowhere. It follows from a deep axiomatic equation at the heart of the ruling thought system. It reigns across even the academy as the money-sequence paradigm beneath examination, and overrides all life and life needs as I have formally shown elsewhere. [56] The ultimate equation behind it all is merely presupposed a priori: Rationality = Self-Maximizing Choice. This equation is the underlying first premise of every U.S. economic textbook and corporate ledger, but it does not stop there. Moral and political philosophy themselves have adopted it as their gold standard of rational deduction.

The way you go from rationality to market freedom and justice in this thought mechanism is by a single homogenous route of atomically self-maximizing calculation. In this ruling meta program substituting for life-coherent thinking, it is assumed that self-maximizing preference necessarily produces by the market’s invisible hand the best possible world or “optimum” for all. This meta-program is the moral DNA of market modernity. It becomes ever more twisted and life-blind - and dyseconomic - once the ruling turn is made in which “society does not exist”. 9-11 is the giant step of the third millennium to institute its rule as absolute.

U.S.-led moral and justice theory, game theory, and economic and strategic systems of calculation are all locked into this ultimate axiom and sequencing of rational-moral-political-strategic choice prior to 9-11- self-maximizing preference in private money-value terms as automatic, absolute and unlimited. It is no more called into question within these dominant domains of thinking than the fish calls into question the sea. But on the dark side of the ultimate equation are the ruling private interests of the U.S. criminal state which are driven by a leap-frog inner logic to the supreme value program of which 9-11 is a mutant expression:

Rationality = Self-Maximizing Choice = U.S. State Seeks to Rule in All Matters of U.S. Interests = U.S. Corporations and Executive State Maximize Control of World Oil Supplies, Strategic Armed Force Positions, Land for Industrial Agriculture, Mass Media Projection, and Scientific and Political Assets = Plan Full Spectrum Dominance through Africa, Middle East and Asia = Freedom and the Good for the World.

No step of this run-on inner logic follows as life-coherent or even sane. Yet seek to find any exception to its throughline value program in the behaviours of the post-9-11 U.S. state and you will find none. This is its moral DNA and includes the destruction of the lives of the rising majority of the American people as “unable to compete”. Not even a tax of .01% on currency speculators or 2% on the multiplied incomes of the rich is tolerated if the money-sequences can keep multiplying at the expense of fellow citizens’ lives and life bases. On the global level, the same innermost carcinogenic dynamic relentlessly erases the boundaries of evolved social and ecological life systems to control all that others have and depend on as “U.S. interests” - that is, more exactly, as instrumental means to grow transnational corporate money-sequences in life-blind self multiplication. 9-11 was the strategically essential step to turn back the world-wide popular forces reacting against this reversal of democratic history and social life evolution.

As all institutions and vocations of countervailing thought and power become increasingly overwhelmed by the multiplying money tides, armed force, media monopoly and privatizing/de-taxing governments, ever larger majorities of people and their social and natural life support systems decline and collapse so long as they are dispossessed and kept down by armed force and bought elections at the same time. This underlying disorder is propelled every step by the ultimately regulating series of equations by which the world is increasingly bound after 9-11. Once the 9-11 explosions occur, not even constitutional guarantees for America’s citizens are secure. Ever diminishing life security and function progresses further for the 99%. Continuous serial murders and lawless assassinations by killer “drones” - unacceptable before 9-11 - are now reported as “technical violations” by the Western press. In a schoolhouse within the U.S. as I write, a “wicked smart” 20-year-old shoots and kills 20 young children - one for every year - from a household terrified of the life insecurity to come. None seem to notice the connections. At the bottom “I kill therefore I am” rules from video to real. “We kill therefore we rule” rules at the system top. In the background, the supranational private money-sequences leave more and more young without lives or futures, and strip the planet of its life ground and support systems. [57]

After 9-11, the moral sanctification becomes cosmic with impunity. “Opponents envy us and hate our freedom”. “You are poor because you do not compete”. “The richer we are, the more we do for society”. The reigning value system is a devouring circle with no committed life function, and it moves by ideological validations that are not exposed. As the British are dispossessed of their social life supports by the City-led money-sequence system, for tell-tale example, the Guardian sports-page smirks that the greatest batsman in Britain exemplifies “greed is good”. Where does the moral rot end? Could it have kept advancing without the 9-11 turn towards world police state coincident with a monopoly corporate press and media to sell it? Could the rootlessly rapacious money-sequence system have so metastasised across domains without all the public attention and funds diverted onto “war against terrorism”? People rise against it everywhere. But the more material opposition there is, the more attacks and police state regimes are justified to “stop the terrorists”, and the more the private money sequence system to monopoly is fed with public funds bled out of the people.

But who is guilty if the U.S. criminal state is accountable to no moral or legal authority but itself, and the private money-sequence system itself is presupposed as law of nature? Systematic violation of the most basic national and international criminal laws, even “the supreme crime” of planning war invasion, now runs free with ever more payoffs to the ruling money party. (As Henry Ford famously said, “Show me who makes a profit from war, and I’ll show you how to stop the war”.) But no accountability to life standards exists at the transnational money-sequence level in war or peace - not even to humanity’s food and water carrying capacities which are increasingly adulterated, polluted and drawn down. All life and life bases are maximally converted into multiplying private money demand at the top as “market competition”. It may seem normatively chaotic, but the responsible agents are identifiable in principle. They always qualify as guilty in proportion to their private money profit from human and planetary life destruction to which their decisions and rules lead.

In the 9-11 crime itself, the intent, the plan, the means, the statements before, the compartmentalized enablements, directives and blocks, the exact execution down to the cover-up erasures, the rolling out of special forces and wars of plunder, the torture, kidnap, repression and murder over 10 years - - all point back to the same responsible agency and plan which no counter-evidence disconfirms. But how are people to hold the responsible agents to account if even forensic questions are themselves taboo? How can this “supranational sovereignty” of limitless private corporate money sequence invasion as “freedom” and “right” be arrested if its value program remains unexamined by even moral philosophers and scholars? If all relevant evidence of the 9-11 crime itself is removed, confiscated, refused, denied, destroyed, anathematized and framed out without connective understanding, the cover-up works? The torture, killing, renditions, and greatest of all, “the supreme crime” under law that “contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”, continue. After Afghanistan on pretext and after Iraq on exposed lie, the wars go into Libya, Syria, Somalia, Iran on false pretenses recycled again and again. Social and natural life systems meanwhile degrade everywhere including the U.S. and the E.U. to feed the global money-sequence program to self-multiplication.

Yet ruling principles of a system-specific rationality and supreme moral goal govern every moment. The ruling transnational money-sequences have been all de-regulated and publicly subsidized in every possible way. The criminal U.S. state has all the “national security” laws, secret presidential directives and post-9-11 police state legislation to validate every step to execution, including murder. These together form the direct institutional agency responsible for the endless crimes, including 9-11 by covert complex mechanism. The problem is that this institutional agency is legally covert while executive-director actions are armoured by offices and evasive lines of command so that even 9-11 could be planned and executed without anyone knowing it but an innermost figure/cabal habituated to all the channels of need-to-know communication, departmentalized division of tasks, and outsource connections to complete the technically advanced and bureaucratically complicated strategic plan. Here too the evidence points to who it could be, Cheney-Rumsfeld-Wolfowitz, for example. But all this diagnosis here depends on are known facts and design. The ultimate issue here is the supreme value program which they express, and the covert state mechanism that enables known official lies, limitless sabotage, torture, kidnapping, murder and war-criminal campaigns by ruling executive decision as legal with no accountability to the rule of criminal law at any level. In fact, no international obligation to comply with the criminal law is recognised by the U.S. state.

What 9-11 showed is that the covert state can be murderously lawless within the U.S. as well. Not only was there no criminal investigation of the act, method, and payoffs of the mass murder on U.S. soil. No principles of criminal forensic justice were allowed even to be raised. Even an aging philosopher from Canada was heaped with abuse from the American and Canadian corporate media and mobbing denunciations for dismissal for merely raising preliminary questions of law and factual anomalies inside a university auditorium. Meanwhile in comparison, from the tragic to the pathetic, private and consensual sexual behavior of anyone in power who opens the most self-evident issues inconvenient to U.S. state policies and the rich transnational money sequences they serve is soon pilloried out of office. The one who stands for the common life interests of the American people against the criminal state and its dominant special interests, however circumspectly, becomes a spectacle of public disgrace for sex-dalliances as the continuous murders, war crimes and fraud continue on unquestioned. [58]

This mutant money-sequence system is mindless in its principled grounds, and the cultural syntax of US-versus-the-Enemy is a comic-strip reduction to Good versus Evil, US-versus-Them. But the same time, more deeply, understanding of only individual agency (called “agent-relative method”) rules out institutional agency a-priori. Law, economics, moral philosophy see only atomic agents and their choices. Institutional agency is blinkered out in principle. Together these two structures of thought - mindless US-Them moral syntax and blind atomic method -blinker out the global reign of terror by the covert U.S state and the monopolist money interests it serves and expresses. Corporate media conglomerates - in which all major money-sequence participate as stock and advertising space owners - then manage the public presentation. The institutionalized criminal agency thus cannot be seen at any of its levels.

A concrete example assists understanding. The “anthrax attacks on the U.S.” after the collapsed WTC buildings were immediately conceived and categorized as more “war on the U.S.” by “foreign terrorists”. The anthrax attacks exactly coincided with the U.S. Senate refusal to pass the Patriot Act, legislation granting full police-state powers. The anthrax-letters came afterwards, and their notes were stereotypes of the U.S. propaganda machine - “Death To America. Death To Israel. Allah Is Great” in capital letters. To ensure it was from “the terrorists”, the opening letter said “You cannot stop us. We have the anthrax. You die now.” (Five people did die). Are you afraid now?” (Again in capital letters). Notable recipients of the anthrax letters were two Senate leaders, the editor of the New York Post, and the NBC news anchor. The Patriot Act was then passed with modifications. [59]

Six months later when citizens were assured of the “War on America”, it was discovered that the anthrax was from the U.S. government’s own biological weapons labs - a manufacture of illegal weaponry that was itself denied for years. [60] This made no difference to the plan. Not only were the anti-terrorist legislation and permanent police-state measures thus legitimated, but all the markings of the criminal U.S. state were again there, covered up, and as usual blamed on a “lone nut” as the major business proceeded - mass-murderous wars on oil-central countries without any mediating requirement of forensic inquiry or due process of finding guilt or questions of the U.S. war crimes under law. Only the instituted evil of the Enemy could exist. {{ref|62)) This is the mind-box within which America is held for the criminal U.S. state and the rapacious and rootless money sequences it serves to succeed.

Citizen Action Required: To Expose and Shame the U.S. Criminal State

U.S. citizens do not vote for a criminal state. It is reviled by thinking citizens and is the disgrace of their country around the world. It is in principle as odious as the earlier transnational monopolist corporate criminal conspiracy that financed and built the Nazi war machine. Its supreme objective and strategic logic are analogous in moral framing and organised terror, and wars of aggression to enact the supranational plan are its signature evil.

It could have gone another way. In the midst of the worst fascist period, Roosevelt’s Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1936 on was Marriner Stoddard Eccles, a wealthy banker, who fought for the indebted majority against the “giant suction pump [which] had by 1929-30 drawn into a few hands an increasing portion of currently produced wealth”. [61] Eccles was driven out by the American money party in 1951 though he had years more to serve. Roosevelt chose as his Vice President Henry Wallace as a condition of his accepting nomination. All three stood against “Wall Street fascism and U.S. corporate imperialism”. [62] But as Roosevelt died Wallace was blocked from the presidency by the inside money-party powers of the Democrat machine just as Eccles was isolated and attacked by them.

In short, the inside battle for the United States goes very deep, and it is between the very rich corporate powers that both Lincoln and Eisenhower warned of and “the common man” who Roosevelt, Wallace and Eccles stood for at the top. Today no such democratic vision and accountability is permitted in through the revolving doors of big-money control. Obama was sold as the brand for such a change, but he is the greatest serial murderer in contemporary history, and his entry into office is due to Wall Street support. “I am the one standing between you and the pitchforks”, he said after 2008 to a Wall Street elite while presiding over a flood of over $16 trillion dollars of public money to enable it to keep hollowing out the world. [63] What drove 9-11 before and after in principle and fact is this same corporate money party: or, more exactly and institutionally by objective criterion, the principals of private transnational money-sequence banks, corporations, syndicates and equity funds distinguished by

1. their repudiation in practice of all life standards, common-interest agencies and requirements which stand in the way of
2. their multiplying private money sequences through all life and life support systems on Earth.

The crisis of Western and world civilisation is laid bare in the undeclared war of life-versus-money codes of value. [64] 9-11 is its signature event in the third millennium. It enables new police-state rights at home and right to assassination and armed-force invasion abroad, while overriding life and life support systems into ever greater crises to feed and multiply the money-party system. Not one step in this slow-motion end-game does not protect and advance dominant private U.S. corporate money sequences to more control of the world to grow more. Yet there is one great barrier codified into the laws of nations which cannot be overridden if seen - the essential social immune system of human civilisation, the rule of life-protective criminal law. It is already codified in binding covenants among nations and is instituted within the U.S. itself as what governs all except the covert state.

It is this evolved criminal law that has been usurped and reversed most profoundly since 2001. Yet this criminalization of the U.S. state remains unflagged. As we have seen, all the primary forensic questions of criminal investigation of 9-11 have been repressed. Due process of establishing guilt has been overthrown. One U.S. crime after another has been perpetrated with impunity and with no public report of the gravest crimes. The “supreme crime” under law of planning a war of aggression that “contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” is repeatedly committed and never prosecuted or even identified. The worst crimes against humanity under law are perpetrated without respite - murder, deprivation of access to food, water and medicine, forcible transfers of population, torture, persecution, false imprisonment, enforced disappearances, plunder of public property, wanton destruction of cities, towns or villages. These are all crimes against humanity under law. They are, to cite the Criminal Code of Canada and the Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes Act “recognized by the community of nations, whether or not any constitutes a contravention of the law in force at the time and in the place of its commission.”

The first requirement for stopping “international terrorism”, “crimes against humanity”, “extreme and systematic violations of human rights” and all the acts of “despotism” of which the U.S. is always accusing others - in particular “terrorist activities” against which it above all claims to prevent and punish - is for the U.S. to comply with the known criminal law. Its satraps like Israel will have to follow. In the primary instance, U.S. offices, agents and institutions are required to comply with national and international criminal law as the sworn duty of office and of institutional legitimacy itself. Criminal activities of murder, torture, kidnapping, and the supreme crime of war invasion must be ruled out, as they are not now, and the U.S. and its criminal axis of mass terrorism and killing be named. Not even the 9-11 truth movement yet does this as published criminal charge. [65] In fact who does recognise the undeniable criminal agents and institutions now ruling? The ultimate moral, legal and political issue is almost nowhere raised. This is the more basic issue than independent investigation of the 9-11 crime inside the U.S. It is the recognition of the instituted criminal agency behind 9-11 which is still plotting supreme crimes of which 9-11 is the striking new homeland version.

Just as citizens of the criminal state of Nazi Germany have not been forgiven by excuses that “we did not know what was going on”, is there any more reason U.S. citizens be forgiven for the continuous war crimes and crimes against humanity by their government with which they have been silently complicit? The same question applies to citizens of allied governments that have participated in or - in Israel’s case - led the crimes. There is far more evidence of these crimes now than there was in the Third Reich. Silence is, of course, how the criminal state continues with moral and legal impunity. [66] Once clear identification of the lead individuals and institutions as proven mass murderers and oppressors for power and gain, they lose their face and legitimacy. The worst tyrants on earth - who also drape themselves in flag and country - fear this exposure so much they seal the lips of their citizens by terror. Eventually they collapse as they are increasingly recognised as what they are - the vilest criminals, serial murderers, liars, torturers, looters of others’ lives and resources. Why is this invincible moral conclusion under law not publicly spoken?

Independent inquiry into the major crime of the criminal U.S. state within the U.S. is self-evidently required. But it is not the incineration of the iconic Rockefeller-child towers and the business personnel inside them that is the crime of the whole. It is the war crimes and crimes against humanity that the covert criminal U.S. state proceeded to from there and continues with morally posturing impunity as it murders by rockets, special forces, covert criminal directions, arming and financing civil wars, and bombing invasions. In the past, one could say that the American people were at least prosperous. But now the transnational U.S. money-sequence system simultaneously hollows out its own citizens’ lives, the future of its youth and its social infrastructures.

Can the reader think of any significant countervailing behaviour of the post-9-11 system? The only exception is where real democratic governments stand against the private transnational money-sequence system at state and popular levels - as in Norway to Brazil today. This stand against the cancerous system is defined by democratic self-organisation, reclamation of public and financial resources, massive public investment, higher taxes on the rich, and peaceful methods. [67] Yet for over a decade Latin America’s peaceful revolution has been unnamed, ignored and attacked in the corporate media while the only movements on the ground that are publicized - the Arab Spring and the Occupy Wall Street movement - have no policies at all.

Meanwhile the covert U.S. state leads coups d’etat against the dramatically successful economies which have exited the sick system - 2002 in Venezuela (failed), 2004 in Haiti before it could get untracked, 2009 in Honduras, 2010 in Ecuador (failed), and 2012 in Paraguay. Direct murder of heads of state is another method. Are the cancers of President Chavez of Venezuela and President Cristina Fernandez of Argentina by the same radiation-poisoning technology as Yasser Arafat, apparently murdered by polonium-210? Who is behind the foreign hit squad that tried to murder President Evo Morales of Bolivia in 2010? [68] In short, the ruling transnational money-sequence system is not only supremely criminal in its covert-state operations, but attacks all public life bases and means that successfully overcome its disorder.

Since 2001 in particular, the transnational money-sequence power stemming from Wall Street and its global corporate partners wages war against life systems in mutating ways of which 9-11 is a turning point in impunity and global totalization. Human rights have been overridden, social programs stripped, taxes on the rich reduced, financial fraud multiplied, wars of aggression and bombings increased, public revenues turned over to the private banking system, and every life-system on the planet pushed into further destabilization and decline with no evident action but more “war against the terrorists”. Yet the entire system is financed by the public. Rising trillions go to its war machine enforcement and recapitalization of Wall Street to debt-enslave the poor and foreign societies while the homeland paying for it becomes increasingly impoverished in life bases and means. This is the unseen meaning of the 9-11 turn to all-fronts war to totalize the transnational money-sequence system beneath consciousness of it.

But conscious it must become. British people have publicly named former P.M. Tony Blair a war criminal, and there is a price on his head for arrest from even journalist George Monbiot, believer in the official 9/11 conspiracy theory. Kissinger dares not travel unless assured he will not be arrested as a war criminal. Conrad Black, a major presence in the Bilderberg Group, has gone to prison for far lesser crimes. In revealing microcosm of the invisible forces at work, I charged the PNAC organiser Thomas Donnelly with “advocating a war crime” a few days before the bombing of Baghdad in 2003, and added, “you should be arrested at an airport”. That so upset him and the media managers presiding over the debate that the words were erased from the “live” broadcast 30 minutes later. True naming goes deep, and cannot be borne by the criminal class and those who support them. But the sweep since 9-11 has gone from Iraq and Afghanistan to Libya to Syria, three of them distinguished by developed social infrastructures for their peoples. Still the perpetual trumpeting of the necessity for invasion of Iran drumbeats on - who next? - and the value program driving every war crime and transnational money-sequence takeover remains undecoded.

The institutional evil of the U.S. covert state is rooted in “national security” justifications as in the prototype Nazi case, and post 9-11 laws have resembled the Nazi Enabling Act after the Reichstag Fire of 1933 with revealing differences. [69] Yet compliance with national and international criminal law is hardly too much to expect from agents and institutions of states forever demanding that others respect “the international community”, “norms of law”, and repudiation of “terrorism”. There are deep precedents for life beyond a criminal U.S. state. Roosevelt, Wallace and Eccles almost won against “the fascism within” and achieved the New Deal. The independent Watergate investigation provides a sovereign democratic model to emulate. Even Philip Zelikow wrote a distinguished memorandum against torture. The long-established and now operational International Criminal Court provides the international laws and procedures already long evolved and applied to others.

Yet behind and sustaining the criminal U.S. state is the ruling assumption that the U.S. is above the law other nations must obey. This is why the U.S. refuses to ratify the International Criminal Court although deploying its rhetoric, legal investigations, procedures and judgements non-stop against others. It is also why even some in the 9-11 truth movement fail to call for prosecution of the covert U.S. state under international law. Many Americans appear to assume that the U.S. state can commit its crimes outside the U.S. but not to its citizens within. The problem here goes very deep. The U.S. state not only subverts the law, but performatively declares it is not bound by it, and one hears few political representatives object - with noble exceptions like Kucinich and McKinney since 9-11 (the latter hounded out of office). When a state effectively declares it is above the criminal law and its people go along, the lawless assumption undermines the verygrounds of civilisation - the very grounds the U.S. stood for in 1945 and the rule of human rights and criminal law which its president and people formerly led. One wonders whether the 9-11 attack sacrificing citizens to advance private U.S. corporate control of foreign treasure in blood oil, markets and banks was not the mutant incubus of a corrupt money-sequence culture that no longer recognises its moral ground.

The remedy begins with the rule of life-protective law that has been usurped, and can be restored as in any developed court of law. [70] The 9-11 crime re-sets the transnational rule of terror into the Middle East and the U.S. itself. Unnamed, the criminal global state and its supranational

sovereignty of private corporate money sequencing continue to cumulatively destroy societies and the planetary life-host with 9-11 as the twenty-first century’s launch-pad of entitlement.

A main element of the Odessa was led by General Reinhard Gehlen who was head of the Foreign Armies East in German Army Headquarters. He was responsible for all intelligence operations through East Europe and the Soviet Union, and in the remaining months of the war deposited the extensive files in a hiding place in the Bavarian Alps. After the war was over, he negotiated a secret treaty to work “jointly with the Americans” on the basis of the detailed files and the services of some 4000 agents. “By one estimate, some 70 per cent of the total intelligence flowing into NATO’s military committee and Allied headquarters (SHAPE) on the Soviet Union, the countries of East Europe, the rest of Europe and indeed the rest of the world was generated [from this source].” (Carl Oglesby, “The Secret Treaty of Fort Hunt”.

Pinochet’s coup occurred on September 11, 1973.

Lest one wonder why this mass-murderous plot to terrorize and kill American and other citizens was not kept secret by the covert U.S. state, and indeed released just before 9-11, one needs to bear in mind that Rockefeller and the Right do not object to elite knowledge of “the plan” to liquidate national sovereignty and self-determination for private banker world rule with the collaboration of the U.S. corporate media in not reporting it. Supreme arrogance and helplessness of opponents to do anything about it are part of the supreme morality, and freedom of information at the top long after the action of seems internal to the design of U.S. supreme power.

Many other dominant money-sequence interests are in interlocked involvement with the supreme value purpose and its system enactment.

We may observe the wider interlocking system of transnational money-sequence control of global industry across domains in the Rockefeller portfolio of Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco, Marathon Oil, Freeport McMoran, Quaker Oats, ASARCO, United, Delta, Northwest, ITT, International Harvester, Xerox, Boeing, Westinghouse, Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, International Paper, Pfizer, Motorola, Monsanto, Union Carbide and General Foods.

If there is anti-Semitism, it is provable against the Arab people, and as full of hatred as Nazi dehumanization of Jews - “bug-splats” the CIA operatives call them when drone murdered, and “two-legged animals” and “insects” say Israel-Likud leaders.

For a micro example again, Allen Bloom was an academy front man of the neo-con enterprise when, obviously enraged, he attacked a paper titled “Structures of Domination and Liberation” at a public symposium, charging it with falsehood, specifically a line from Plato’s The Republic of which he is the best-known American translator. He was famous in a three-piece suit, I was in a two-dollar shirt and untenured. It was meat-eating time for “the elite”, the room seemed to say. When I produced the more authoritative F.M. Cornford Oxford translation from which the line came, he pretended it, he and I were not there. The contested line ironically revealed the real issue. Plato revealingly referred to “hired labourers” as “hardly worth including in our society” (Republic, II, 371). The exchange was a kind of synecdoche of the posturing supremacism and lies of the “intellectual elite and bankers” asserting “supranational sovereignty” over fact and life with bullying falsification its epigenetic code.

Petraeus defined the “root causes of instability” as follows: “Perceived U.S. favoritism for Israel.

As soon as it was shown that the anthrax came from highly secure military labs in the U.S. the FBI [as usual] started looking for a lone nut, ruling out from the outset a [home-side] institutional agent.”

  68. ^  To provide a sense of the global terrorist network that has been constructed by the U.S. covert state since 9-11 and on its pretext, fifty-four states have allied with the U.S. in criminal kidnapping, caging, and torture euphemized as “renditions” http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/.../globalizing-torture-cia-secret-de...Feb 5, 2013).

A once-unthinkable culture of official violence and murder from the top has become normalized.

  71. ^  The Nazi Enabling Act permitted all the “anti-terrorist” rights of arrest, detention, and overriding of law and due process as the Patriot Act and other legislation permitted the Bush Jr. administration, but fell short of claiming it an “act of war” permitting war on other countries. In another parallel little noticed, September 11 was also the date of the coup d’etat against the elected government of Chile in 1973 directed by Henry Kissinger and Milton Friedman and financially and militarily assisted by the U.S. to begin the long line of death-squad dictatorships across Latin America which were U.S.-supported throughout their reigns of terror. The 9-11 attack is woven through with mass-murderous precedent, but is distinguished by three simultaneous features from the U.S. past: (1) its direct assault on the U.S. and its justification of direct wars on other societies against the defining criminal laws of the international community (not instituted while the Nazis ruled); (2) its justification for overriding the constitutional rights ofAmerican citizens themselves (not before formally instituted in the U.S.); and, driving all, (3) the maximum pay-off matrix to transnational U.S. money-sequences in new hundreds of billions of dollars to private military contractors, new control over world premier oilfields worth more in long-term seized assets, new agricultural lands under U.S. transnational corporate control and forced GMO and oil-derivative inputs, and perhaps most overall by Wall Street extractions from the vast new private money-sequences put in motion that its private banks and bankers profitably finance at every step across the world (largely new developments by corporately dictated transnational treaties).
  72. ^  The criminals themselves can be democratically stopped most directly at the appointment level where open Congressional hearings on all national security advisers, members of relevant Senate committees, and candidates for President are directly asked under oath and penalty for perjury whether they would advocate or be complicit in capital crime under existing U.S. or international criminal law. Such elementary screening against high crimes with disqualification powers for failure of assurance is as self-evident as an oath in court, and far more is at stake. One result would be to restore the U.S. state to the legitimacy it has lost. Another would be to have a real moral ground for the Free World. Another, most of all, would be to allow the vast majority of the world seeking peace and justice to achieve what 9-11 has derailed for over a decade.
