The latest phase of modern American history started on September 11, 2001. So it's critical that we Americans not only remember what happened on that day, but also truly understand it, in order to prevent a recurrence. Unfortunately, many of us still do not understand it to this date. Why not? There are many reasons. Let me give you one example: CNN's interview of Leon Panetta on 9/11/2016.
1. The video
Below is the published video of the interview, highlighting, presumably, the most important part for CNN and its audience.
2. The transcript
Here is the link to the full transcript of the entire interview: http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1609/11/fzgps.01.html.
Below is an excerpt from the transcript:
What a big statement by Leon Panetta, a former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director!
Think about it: 15 years after President George W. Bush declared the War on Terror, as the direct result of the 9/11 attack, we have not done enough to confront the root causes that have produced terrorism! How is that possible?
Worse yet, the part containing the excerpt is not even in the published video! Why was it omitted?
The mainstream media and the political establishment work together for their own benefits, while blatantly misleading the American people by deliberately hiding the big but inconvenient truth! For more, read: Brainwashing in Communism and in Democracy.
We, as a nation, must better understand the 9/11 attack, as well as what happened before and after it! Here is my summary:
My fellow Americans, it’s time to be serious about 9/11!
The answer is not simply “they hate us”. Ask “why do they hate us so much?”
Now, please sit back and enjoy the video below.
