We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

The Long-Hidden Saudi-9/11 Trail

Click here to access article by Kristen Breitweiser from ConsortiumNews.

The 9/11 widow makes this opening statement following the reading of the previously censored  congressional 9/11 report:
First and foremost, here is what you need to know when you hear any member of our government say the newly released 29-page chapter from the congressional 9/11 report contains no smoking gun — THEY ARE LYING.

Our government’s relationship to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is no different than an addict’s relationship to heroin. Much like a heroin addict who will lie, cheat and steal to feed his vice, certain members of our government will lie, cheat and steal to continue their dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation and its leaders from the inside out.
I hurriedly read the report this morning and my impression was that it contained many weasel-words like "may have", "suggests",  and "speculate", and that Saudi officials refused to cooperate in investigations conducted by US intelligence services. This in spite of the fact that the report contained page after page of evidence linking the Saudi government with the hijackers. It looked to me like that the US intelligence services were attempting to hide not only Saudi involvement in 9/11, but their own and other top US figures.
