A Favor to Ask

We all have various opinions on the state of this country and where we are headed as a nation. This being said, I think we can all agree that things have changed drastically since the attacks of 9/11. It was unprecedented in our history and left a deep emotional scar on our collective psyche. Considering the sea change that has happened in this country regarding our foreign policy and the rule of law since 9/11, I think it would do all Americans a little good to at least know a number of facts that you have probably never seen or heard on television. In fact, I would venture to say that 80%-90% of Americans know nothing about 9/11 other than what they heard on the news or read in the newspaper in the days following the attacks. Please listen when I say that I am not making any claims about what did or did not happen. I just want you to learn some things that you probably never knew. For instance, did you know that Bin Laden denied responsibility for 9/11 in the days following the attacks? This is a fact. See the link to the CNN article below. Did you not knowing this fact make it any less true? Nope. And yes, I know that we are told he orchestrated the whole thing. And yes, he probably was intimately involved in the attacks and directly responsible. However, how many of you knew that he even denied responsibility? This is my point. As such, please just take 5 minutes out of your day and learn a few facts that you probably never knew by clicking on this link. These are things that you have never been told by ABC, Fox News, or NBC. Just click on the blue text above that says “link” or on the “History Lesson” link below. Facts are facts, truth is truth. To quote on old cliche, “You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own set of facts.” DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE TRUTH, EVEN IF IT MIGHT DRASTICALLY CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD.
