This site is the online version of the to-be-published nonpartisan reference book with the working title "9/11 Plus: Events Seemingly Related to 9/11 and Our Subsequent Invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq."
Even as incomplete as this compilation of quotes is on the subjects (there are surely millions of other relevant quotes available), this compilation and timeline should give the reader a broad and basic view from which to draw their own conclusions about the areas related or tangential to 9/11. At best, this timeline should encourage readers to also look closer into the information presented - and think about the information "holes" in this work.
This work should:
- Give the reader the tools to quickly and easily see who said what and did what and when, regarding the issues seemingly related to 9/11.
- Illustrate discrepant, contradictory, and at best, uninformed behavior of our government and others surrounding arguably our worst tragedy of the 21st century.
- Encourage others to think about and independently dig deeper into the issues brought to light in this work, in the hope of generating more thought, research, and understanding of these topics and most importantly, to help us formulate better policies for our future.
Increasing our collective knowledge of the events set out in these sourced quotes should encourage us all to be more thoughtful and analytical in our views of events, and better realize that just because someone popular or of note says or writes something, that information should still be viewed with common sense and skepticism. We should constantly debate and question our elected representatives and others about issues seemingly or potentially important to us.
Decisions reached through enhanced scrutiny of information we see, hear and read should produce better decisions in our lives, better protect our security, and lighten the burden of millions of Americans and others around the world who want to live in peace.
Lastly, I hope this work will encourage others to think about and dig deeper into the issues brought to light in this work in the hope of generating more thought, research, and understanding of them.
