It is astounding that so many people who denounce the war against Iraq are so naïve about its origins. One of the strongest arguments by those opposed to the Bush/PNAC war policy in the Middle East maintains that there was NO connection between Iraq and the events of September 11th. That allegation, while well motivated, is entirely and absolutely false.

No, Iraq was not involved with, nor did its leader support Al Qaeda. No, Iraq was not involved in the planning or operation of the 9/11 attacks. And no, not a single alleged hijacker was an Iraqi. It’s “no” to the Iraq nexus all the way down the line.

And still, the attacks on 9/11 and the invasion and occupation of Iraq are interminably and intrinsically intertwined and neither tragedy can be fully discussed without the other. The hard fact is: had there been no attack on American soil on September 11th, there would not and could not have been a war in Iraq. And, conversely, if there was going to be military action by the US against Iraq by Bushco, there first had to be an unprecedented attack on American soil.

Sadly, but predictably, the correct connection between the two has never adequately surfaced. Certainly, the corporate news networks were fully complicit in shaping the public’s belief that Iraq was involved in the attacks of 9/11. Much of the nation, and a great percentage of the military still hold that belief, and little has been done to expose this calculated fabrication. Still, despite all we have learned, no one in the public arena has focused on the accurate and vitally important connection between the two events.

Despite all they have learned about the litany of lies and distortions that led to this failed war, most Americans still will not even consider the possibility that the attacks of 9/11 had to happen so that the premeditated plans for invading Iraq could be carried out.

That fact is a logical certainty which most people understand on some level of awareness. The public realizes that the attacks of 9/11 and to the Bush/PNAC invasion of Iraq are somehow interwoven, but most Americans cannot bring themselves to deal with the correct cause and effect sequence: Iraq was in no way responsible for what happened on 9/11, but 9/11 was in every way responsible for what happened in Iraq.
But no one outside the 9/11 Truth Movement dares to say that. Despite all we know, and despite all the dots that have been connected, discussion of 9/11 as a necessary event in the PNAC strategy for global domination remains taboo.

Let’s look at what we do know, - not what we suspect, but what is documented and verifiable fact:
