Occurrences - News Journalism and More has kindly linked to my post below concerning Truth and Reconciliation over the 9/11 (events and aftermath). I appreciate the "Occurrences" Blog very much as it simplifies the daily task of getting an overview of geopolitical events from the alternative blog perspective AND it has an ecumenical approach, inclusive of the lesser known blogs like mine. So, below is what Occurrences said about my proposal, built on that of Carl Herman, to have a Truth and Reconciliation Commission set up to (finally) begin the long delayed journey towards Truth, Justice and Healing from the crimes and aftermath of 9/11. I will have more thoughts and comments to follow:
The blogger known as Greencrow presents an interesting discussion of the Truth and Reconciliation ideas promulgated by Carl Herman and noted here at Washington’s Blog just recently. I urge you to read them and Greencrow’s response.
She works on what she calls a sliding scale as she is willing to address and accept the idea under certain circumstances. For example, she mentions the window for admission of guilt as ranging from a few days up to 30. She suggests a mandatory prison term of a year for any found guilty of anything to do with 9/11. She mentions the force of law, the publication of findings, the awards of damages using monies seized from the perpetrating organizations (noting the media, especially), etc. She says something must come of the effort. She does not mention how “we” will summon the force of the law when the force of the law is tightly controlled by the perps themselves. The real difficulty is the slide from admission of culpability into change, transformation, etc. I suggest that since all corporations have the standing of persons they be indicted for murder and the companies or agencies found guilty be banished (put to legal death). But she’s seconded the discussion started by Carl Herman. The floor is now open for the input of all. Raise the questions and issues in your own communities, families, churches, circles of discussion and places of employment.
First, just one correction. I believe I said that the window for amnesty (I said immunity) would be for ANYONE who came forward with truth and evidence within the window of opportunity time frame. Even if the individual were guilty of crimes relating to 9/11...I believe if they came forward with hard evidence they should be granted complete immunity. This would not only encourage individuals to come forward, but it would compensate for the extreme danger they would put themselves in by doing so.
I considered the question of how to "summon the law" when the law is controlled by the perps themselves in the comments following the post. In a response to wallflower I suggested setting up an international court of prominent folks who are "honest brokers"...and courageous, I might add... because being on such a commission might be dangerous to your health. I even had the temerity to "list" a few and included myself at the end. I was going to put a smiley face after but decided not to. I thought, why volunteer others but not myself?
Finally, the reason I started to seriously consider Truth and Reconciliation as an option is because I am now thinking that Donald Trump will (unless he is assassinated and/or there is an enormous False Flag...unfortunately this is a distinct possibility) become the next President of the United States. Here is a recent poll from Whatreallyhappened.com.
If the election were held today, who would you vote for? (The corporate media is rigging their polls)
I don't think the cabal can rig the election, given the numbers reported above. They are now considering their options...and so should we. We Should never corner a dangerous animal. We should always allow them an escape route and then try to capture them without endangering ourselves. Think about it. Unless the perps are given a way out...they could pull a "Samson Option" (go nuclear) or some such.
A Truth and Reconciliation Commission will solve several urgent issues that will likely arise if Trump is elected:
1. Trump will have to deal with all the horrific mess left by Billary/Dubya/Obomber AS WELL AS the unfinished business of the non-9/11 investigation. Let's allow him to tackle the problems of the United States and take this off his hands.
2. The Perps will be put off balance by the consideration that some of their number could be opting to go before the Commission and spill the beans. Of course, witnesses will be allowed to testify in secret at first due to the extreme danger they will be in. AND this will mess greatly with the minds of the perps. As time goes by, more and more of them will turn themselves in.
3. The risk of assassination to Trump will be lessened because the entire matter (of the 9/11 crimes and aftermath) will be out of Trump's hands. He will be able to claim he is unable to even discuss the matter because "it is before the Commission". Again, he will be able to do what he's been elected for.
4. Some of the perpetrators of the crimes of 9/11 are probably already ready to come forward and "ease the burden on their hearts". So much time has passed, but the grief and the destruction goes on. Surely, some of them would welcome the opportunity to come clean before they "meet their maker". All they need is a safe forum. And they don't want to risk the uncertainty of a Trump presidency, where he comes across some unpleasant "discoveries" on his desk....and is forced to act on the information.
The missing piece of the puzzle, I have to admit, is the "catalyzing event" (lol, even I have to laugh at this twisted use of the neocon "Pearl Harbour" metaphor). Some might say just the election of Trump might be enough. I have my doubts. I think there needs to be something more....perhaps getting Putin so mad (provoking him in Syria, for instance) that he tells the world what HE knows about 9/11. Now, THAT might do it.
In summary, I think this is an idea that really needs to be considered...while we still have some options.
