September 11th drove me to turn off my tv and even CBC radio. I had to face dealing with the internet as my primary source of information - I long ago learned to say no to the telephone workers of the Sun and Province. The first days of September 11th left me in a panic realizing I was getting no information about anything that was really happening.

Suddenly the internet expanded and I discovered not only http://www.indymedia.org and http://www.anti-war.com and http://www.narconews.com, but ever exapanding sources of alternative information now available online. I had finally been forced to use the internet to research, and to take globalisation seriously.

MalcontentX’s first net investigation of the unanswered questions stemming from September 11th is exactly the kind of reporting and inquiry I had been looking for on the day of enforced mourning when I turned off my tv and radio. It also serves to do a good job on an overview of some key net responses. The second part, a discussion of sources, is a must read, but having just spent my afternoon on part one, I’ll leave it for now.

If you have any suspicions about what went down on September 11th MalcontentX is worth a read, even if you have your own favourite conspiracy. Much as in the Anthrax scare which now seems clearly a domestic job, and one certainly well timed to support the military industrial complex, one must conclude with MalcontentX that the events of that day were convenient to oil interests, the Bush administration, the Military and NATO (and I might add the corporate media).

The great shock of MalcontentX’s documentation is that everyone in power seems to be so confused that they can’t really recall what happened or why nothing happened, even as it happened live on CNN. What was it about the story Bush was reading that made it so important to keep on going in that Florida class room even after the second plane hit! Are phonics that exciting!

MalcontentX calls for the building of a case before the American people, and certainly presents the evidence based on which to call the US government to account for its failure to act and its abuse of power in launching an assault on Afghanistan.

The question remains, much as in the Anthrax case, who exactly will listen. In Canada we should be helping in building this case, and not letting our own warmongers off the hook for their failure to act or truthfully inform the public on NATO’s latest deadly wargames. Recall, the Alliance is eager to trounce Iraq these days, and our troops are there waiting - and this all supposedly stems from the “Attack on America”?

If the accounts of spins, confusion and lies don’t get you to question Bush and Chretien, and anyone else who claims the mainstream media war is not simulation, MalcontentX reminds us that in two weeks the amount spent on military budgets would be enough to feed the world for a year.

Never mind the mysterious “terrorist’s” id which jumped on its own accord from the cockpit of the plane right into investigators hands, clearly something is wrong when the biggest military in the world can't protect itself from an attack Hollywood had long ago scripted, and now it can’t even explain why.

Take some time and responsibility and have a read at what MalcontentX has to offer.

Peace, kena
