The 9-11 page

On September 11, 2001 four airliners fueled for cross country flights were hijacked from Boston's Logan Airport (BOS), Newark Airport (EWR), and Dulles Airport (IAD) outside of Washington, DC. Two were flown into the World Trade Center twin towers with enormous loss of life and property, one was flown into the Pentagon, and a fourth, apparently in a failure of its mission, was flown into the ground in rural western Pennsylvania. The full impact of this unprecedented disaster has yet to be seen, but given the response of the government and the media to date there is absolutely no cause for optimism. The only rational response to a crisis of this magnitude from a people afflicted with a mindless government/media complex such as ours is a recourse to alternate viewpoints, to history, and to sober reflection.

9-11 And The Reichstag Fire

The Reichstag after its most recent
The Reichstag is a government building in Berlin. It was built between 1884 and 1894 to house the German parliament, which is also known as the Reichstag. On February 27, 1933, 28 days after Adolf Hitler had been appointed Chancellor and 6 days before the last national elections to be held in Germany before its defeat in World War II, an arsonist set fire to the building. This catastrophic event and its impact on Germany and the world is the subject of this essay. Parallels between it and 9-11 are drawn.
