There's actually a scene in Bowling For Columbine where they get a shotgun for opening a bank account.

Really. Honestly. What good comes out of re-hashing this when there's a very narrow narrative that is allowed to be aired about what happened and who was responsible?

Everybody acts like the US was a complete innocent party in this. Like we were just minding our own business and some mean Muslim dude stuck a stick in the wheel of our bicycle. There's no talk about the decades of fucking around in the middle east, playing sides in a civil war we had absolutely no business being in. Playing games with dictators so we could steal resources from other people. I grow weary of the never ending stream of propaganda whitewashing 9/11 as if it was a completely one-sided thing. Bin Laden him self published info on why he did it - that never gets any attention (US Army bases in Saudi Arabia and our $6B kickback scheme with Israel to fund their oppression of their neighbors, among other things). It was blowback. Everybody knows it. Why don't we talk about that?

It also wasn't an attack against "America." That's another bullshit narrative. Those people attacked very specific locations and very specific people that were involved in dynamics that we'll probably never fully-know the extent of. They tried to take down the WTC several times. Who and what was there? Why that building? I'm not a conspiracy theorist but this wasn't a random "attack against America" - it was a very specific target. Another thing we're not going to talk about.

And why was Bin Laden's family allowed to leave the country when nobody else could fly? Why aren't we talking about that? Or that the Bush administration basically did nothing against the real perpetrators (the majority of which were Saudi) and instead blew $13 Trillion in Iraq and were never held accountable? George W. Bush caused more innocent death following 9/11 than in 9/11 and was never held accountable.

There's no sense talking about 9/11 when there are so many things that can't or won't be said.

As such, 9/11 is nothing more than a smokescreen, covering up more egregious crimes.

What's your response to that?

Why did they dump his body in the ocean? Wouldn’t the world want some kind of photographic evidence of his demise like they did with Uday and Qusay Hussein?

What happened during the Bush administration with the Hussein's ended up fostering much more unnecessary animosity (and will possibly bring forth even more in the future).

Bin Laden was "disappeared" intentionally. This was so he couldn't be made a martyr as efficiently. So there was no grave to visit. It was the best way avoid his death being exploited for further hatred and animosity, and it was done in such a way that was respectful to Muslims, unlike what George W. Bush did, which angered entire generations of people who weren't even enemies.

I'm certain there is absolutely photographic evidence of his demise. I wouldn't be surprised if they had actual video of the event itself. But it's one of those things that will probably never be made public. Nothing good can come out of it (other than giving a small subset of patriotic psychopaths a 'freedom boner')

Every time anybody in the media brings up 9/11, it's always answering the "what's", not the WHY? If you ask your typical American why 9/11 happened they'll respond with some retarded, "They hate our freedumb!" response. There's no actual insightful information propagated in any of these regurgitations of historical events.
