Now that all the touching ceremonies and soft remembrances are over, it’s time to take a very sobering look at the real and long lasting impact of 9/11. Ignore for a minute the utter desecration of the civil rights that were woven into the fabric of our Constitution. Ignore for a minute the hundreds of thousands of lives that have been lost after 9/11.
Just consider the extraordinary economic impact of Project Graystone. Consider soldiers fanning out into tribal regions with duffel bags stuffed full with bricks of untraceable one hundred dollar bills. Or later, consider not just armored trucks, but armored semi trailers secretly delivering pallots stacked with billions of dollars in cash, cash that later is reported to have been stolen. Just think about that for a moment as you struggle to pay your bills….billions of dollars unaccounted for…just GONE. This on top of the billions of dollars that our government admits has been spent on both reported and unreported wars around the world.
And all of this really exploded after 9/11. So now that the solemn ceremonies are over…just think about where we are today.
