.5 trillion estimate, which only counts expenses for what are known as “overseas contingency operations,” ... The .6 trillion figure, on the other hand, includes not just what the U.S. has spent on overseas military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria, but also portions of Homeland Security spending related to counterterrorism on American soil, and future obligations to care for wounded or traumatized post-9/11 military veterans. The financial burden of the post-9/11 wars across the Greater Middle East -- and still spreading, through Africa and other regions -- is far larger than most Americans recognize. 9/11 Truth and the Quest for Peace 9/11 Truth may be the most effective arguments for peace because 9/11 has a combination of two very important features that no other issue has to such a persuasive degree: (1) the obviousness of the lie and (2) the dire consequences of that lie. Many in the anti-war movement have ignored the power and simplicity of exposing the facts of 9/11. For example, if a person watches a video of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7) collapsing into its own footprint, or even if they just see pictures of the descent, they almost always understand that they are looking at a controlled demolition. The fact that WTC 7 was not hit by an airplane, that no fire-protected skyscraper has ever collapsed from fire outside of 9/11, that it came down in wide-scale, symmetric free-fall for eight stories, and that the official explanation for the collapse is provably not true. Because viewing this information, censored from mainstream media, makes it is obvious that something is wrong with the reasons for starting the 9/11 wars, it has a key place in the anti-militarism / anti-war movement. 1967 March on the Pentagon On October 21, 1967 50,000 people marched on the Pentagon in opposition to the escalation of U.S. imperialist aggression in Vietnam. An anti-war rally was held at West Potomac Park near the Lincoln Memorial where 70,000 people had gathered for a concert by musician and peace activist Phil Ochs. Both groups joined together and marched; this action was to be known as the March on the Pentagon. During 1967 there were numerous anti-war marches across the nation in all major cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. These actions and the subsequent protests and demonstrations during the 1968 presidential elections eventually lead to the call for a general strike which culminated in the mobilization of 500,000 protestors in another march on the Pentagon known as the Vietnam Moratorium which took place on October 15, 1969. A month later, due to the success of the first march, another rally was held. While the marches and marchers did not end the war directly, the resistance to the war was amplified by them and this eventually led to the collapse of support for continuing the Vietnam war – which then led to the defeat of the South Vietnamese government and the evacuation of the United Stated from Vietnam in 1975.

Rejected by President Kennedy, his own assassination later exemplified "false-flag" action on an even grander scale, wherein the one framed via intelligence operations (Footnote #2) to appear his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was officially manipulated to best allow attribution of the actual crime to Cuban and/or Soviet Union sponsorship, justifying potential military action against either or both nations.

Declassified in the 1990s, "Operation Northwoods" was a post-Bay-of-Pigs "false-flag" plan proposed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to President Kennedy, calling for terrorist acts against U.S. citizens to create a pretext for invasion of Cuba. Rejected by President Kennedy, his own assassination later exemplified "false-flag" action on an even grander scale, wherein the one framed via intelligence operations (Footnote #2) to appear his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was officially manipulated to best allow attribution of the actual crime to Cuban and/or Soviet Union sponsorship, justifying potential military action against either or both nations. Recall that advisors had encouraged President Kennedy, who of course refused, to himself launch a pre-emptive nuclear attack on the Soviet Union.

9/11 TAP Endorses The 2018 Women's March on the Pentagon

Our demands are simple: The complete end to the wars abroad

Written by 911TAP Outreach Department

In response to the continuing march of military aggression by the USA – and to put an antiwar agenda back on the table for activists, a Women's March On The Pentagon is being planned for the 51st anniversary of the big antiwar event in Washington D.C. in 1967 and subsequent march on the Pentagon that had 50,000 people! The organizers proclaim, “Our demands are simple: The complete end to the wars abroad; closure of foreign bases; dramatically slash the Pentagon budget to fund healthy social programs here at home: the only good empire is a gone empire.”  They further state that the "nuclear clock" is at two minutes to midnight and because the threat of nuclear annihilation becoming an incomprehensible reality, “We Must March For Peace and Against the War Machine.”

51 Years Later

Fifty one years later, the forces of war and militarism are still strong – propelled by the events of 9/11– just as the Vietnam War was propelled by the false story of the Gulf of Tonkin Attack and the Domino Theory (the 1960's version of the "Global War on Terror"). In an echo from the events of the past, on October 20-21, 2018 the Women's March On The Pentagon will take place and then a few weeks later on November 10-11, 2018 Celebrate Peace: Armistice Day 100th Anniversary (Veterans Reclaim Armistice Day marches and activities) events will be sponsored by World Beyond War.

The 9/11 Truth Action Project supports the efforts of the Women’s March on the Pentagon and World Beyond War in their activities. We encourage all people interested in supporting these events – either in Washington or in their home communities – to join the chorus.

How to Help

On the seventeenth anniversary of September 11, 9/11 TAP organized over a dozen vigils around the country.  Now just six weeks later, another anniversary is calling for solidarity and outreach regarding the cost of the wars in moral, physical and financial terms – plus an opportunity to educate the people about the events of 9/11 and inform them about the inadequate investigation into 9/11 that has propelled these wars. Once educated, they will demand answers to what actually happened before, on and following 9/11 – undercutting the basis for these wars.

Questions about 9/11 have relevance today – as exemplified by the U.S. Senate passing resolution SR 610 introduced by Senator Blumenthal just 13 days ago.  This resolution, passed unanimously, called for the broadest possible declassification of 9/11 documents. The next step in Congress is for the House to pass the companion resolution H.Res 663.

If marches, rallies or vigils are not yet organized in your local communities to support the Women's March on the Pentagon (check here), the 9/11 Truth Action Project will help by offering support to local organizers to reach out to groups like anti-war, citizens rights and first responders.   If you want to help, contact 9/11 TAP at Vigils [AT] 911tap [DOT] org.

9/11 and the Women’s March

The events of 9/11 have cast a bloody and costly shadow over our country and the world. Spurred on by the events of 9/11, military budgets have over-run domestic priorities and fomented death and destruction around the globe.

The irresponsible and incomplete investigations into the events of 9/11 by the government and the media have shown us that 9/11 TAP has a common cause with the Women's March on the Pentagon because their call (The complete end to the wars abroad; closure of foreign bases; dramatically slash the Pentagon budget to fund healthy social programs here at home: the only good empire is a gone empire) mirror's elements of the 9/11 TAP strategic plan.  Awareness of the importance of the 9/11 meme in the ongoing wars is apparent in the statements posted by the organizers on their website:

 In There Are No War Heroes. There Are Only War Victims, Caitlin Johnstone reminds us:

General Wesley Clark's revelation has been coming true, but not in quite the way it was spelled out for him. The 9/11 attacks gave rise to the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists, which has enabled the United States to build up a military presence inside the borders of any nation deemed to have terrorists in it, which has in turn been made much easier as the regime change destabilization inflicted upon places like Iraq and Libya have caused terrorism to run rampant and widespread.

In Afghanistan: The War That Shames America, Eric Margolis points out some elementary flaws with the official story of what happened on 9/11 and out response.

The canard that the US had to invade Afghanistan to get at Osama bin Laden, alleged author of the 9/11 attacks, is untrue. The attacks were made by Saudis and mounted from Hamburg and Madrid, not Afghanistan. I’m not even sure bin Laden was behind the attacks. My late friend and journalist Arnaud de Borchgrave shared my doubts and insisted that the Taliban leader Mullah Omar offered to turn bin Laden over to a court in a Muslim nation to prove his guilt or innocence.

In Why We March for Eight Billion Lives, Ann Garrison speaks to the violence that United States inflicted on the world after the events of 9/11:

The endless “War on Terror” emerged after 9/11, which became the excuse for war as a constant, not an aberration. Until we rein in the US’s determination to exert hegemony over the whole world, we will continue to see blood spilled here while, at the same time, our missiles rain down on innocents in the name of specious “humanitarian intervention” and stopping terrorism. There is an irony to the US invoking the term “humanitarian intervention,” as it publicly abandons and scorns international law, bombing civilians and even hospitals.

In How America's Wars Fund Inequality at Home, Stephanie Savell recounts the enormous cost of the war – without noting that the enormous ‘costs’ incurred by these post 9/11 expenditures are actually enormous revenues to the “military industrial complex”.

Since 9/11, the U.S. has spent $5.6 trillion on its war on terror, according to the Costs of War Project, which I co-direct, at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. This is a far higher number than the Pentagon’s $1.5 trillion estimate, which only counts expenses for what are known as “overseas contingency operations,” ... The $5.6 trillion figure, on the other hand, includes not just what the U.S. has spent on overseas military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria, but also portions of Homeland Security spending related to counterterrorism on American soil, and future obligations to care for wounded or traumatized post-9/11 military veterans. The financial burden of the post-9/11 wars across the Greater Middle East -- and still spreading, through Africa and other regions -- is far larger than most Americans recognize.

9/11 Truth and the Quest for Peace

9/11 Truth may be the most effective arguments for peace because 9/11 has a combination of two very important features that no other issue has to such a persuasive degree: (1) the obviousness of the lie and (2) the dire consequences of that lie.  Many in the anti-war movement have ignored the power and simplicity of exposing the facts of 9/11.

For example, if a person watches a video of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7) collapsing into its own footprint, or even if they just see pictures of the descent, they almost always understand that they are looking at a controlled demolition. The fact that WTC 7 was not hit by an airplane, that no fire-protected skyscraper has ever collapsed from fire outside of 9/11, that it came down in wide-scale, symmetric free-fall for eight stories, and that the official explanation for the collapse is provably not true.

Because viewing this information, censored from mainstream media, makes it is obvious that something is wrong with the reasons for starting the 9/11 wars, it has a key place in the anti-militarism / anti-war movement.

1967 March on the Pentagon

On October 21, 1967 50,000 people marched on the Pentagon in opposition to the escalation of U.S. imperialist aggression in Vietnam. An anti-war rally was held at West Potomac Park near the Lincoln Memorial where 70,000 people had gathered for a concert by musician and peace activist Phil Ochs. Both groups joined together and marched; this action was to be known as the March on the Pentagon. During 1967 there were numerous anti-war marches across the nation in all major cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

These actions and the subsequent protests and demonstrations during the 1968 presidential elections eventually lead to the call for a general strike which culminated in the mobilization of 500,000 protestors in another march on the Pentagon known as the Vietnam Moratorium which took place on October 15, 1969. A month later, due to the success of the first march, another rally was held.

While the marches and marchers did not end the war directly, the resistance to the war was amplified by them and this eventually led to the collapse of support for continuing the Vietnam war – which then led to the defeat of the South Vietnamese government and the evacuation of the United Stated from Vietnam in 1975.
