On this episode of THE Q.PSIENCE PROJECT, author and journalist Len Bracken discusses The Shadow Government: 9-11 and State Terror.
There is the alarming evidence that nation-states actively engage in terror actively, and also passively allow terror to be visited upon their citizens. It is not just liberation movements and radical groups that deploy terrorist tactics for offensive ends. States use terror defensively to directly intimidate their citizens and to indirectly attack themselves or harm their citizens under a false flag. Their motivation? To provide pretexts for otherwise unwanted wars, or to gain increased police powers. Statesmen have executed indirect terrorism in various ways, but most plots tend to involve the pretense of blind eyes, misdirection, and cover-ups that give the statesmen plausible deniability. The sinking of the Lusitania, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the October Surprise, the first World Trade Center bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing and other well-known incidents suggest that terrorism is often successfully used by states to take the offensive against enemies at home and abroad. Was 9-11 such an indirect defensive attack? Arch Conspirator author Len Bracken traces the clues circumstantially connecting a multi-armed hydra of oil interests, the CIA, FBI, diplomats and statesmen to the September 11 attacks and examines whether they were engineered or allowed as a pretext for the war in Afghanistan. The subsequent anthrax attack targeting Democratic senators is considered in light of the controversial USA Patriot Act’s rights-encroaching measures and the act’s easy passage under conditions of terror. A shadow government appears to have covered the land like black ice.
Len Bracken is the author of four novels and four nonfiction books, including the first widely distributed books published in the United States suggesting the 9/11 attacks were the work of government provocateurs. Shadow Government: 9-11 and State Terror.
