National magazine prints David Ray Griffin's article

In a rare display of courage by major U.S. news media, Rabbi Lerner, editor of TIKKUN magazine, has printed author David Ray Giffin's 12000 word article "The American Empire and 9/11" in the March/April 2007 issue.

According to Prof. Griffin the evidence—which he presents in this article and in several books—"leads to the conclusion that 9/11 was a false-flag operation orchestrated by the Bush administration for primarily imperial reasons."

Prof. Griffin adds: "If this conclusion is correct, then exposing the falsity of the official account of 9/11 should be high on the agenda of all people committed to reversing the present policies of the U.S. government, for at least four reasons.

"First, 9/11 has provided the pretext for at least most of the malevolent and destructive policies carried out by the Bush-Cheney administration since that day. . . .

"Second, the truth about 9/11 is one truth that the American people would not tolerate. . . . American people simply would not allow an administration to stay in power after learning that it had orchestrated the attacks of 9/11.

"Third, the orchestration of the attacks of 9/11 goes far beyond any previous instance of 'high crimes and misdemeanors' that have previously been cited as cause for impeachment. . . .

"Finally, to reverse the policies of the Bush-Cheney administration will require more than simply removing this administration from office—something that could be legitimately done for any number of reasons. The attacks of 9/11 were orchestrated to further the project of creating an American empire of truly global scope and, as we saw earlier, this has been a long and bipartisan project. Differences have involved strategy, emphasis, and demeanor more than the goal itself. The replacement of the Bush-Cheney administration by a Democratic administration for some reason other than 9/11 would probably simply result in a reversion to the subtler, more sophisticated, and hence more effective form of imperialism that the United States previously exercised."
