A Prelude to the War of Terror

By Nasir Khan

This famous documentary film, Loose Change 9/11, was produced in 2006 that challenged the official explanation of the attacks of  September 11, 2001. It also aroused  a great deal of controversy; it had its supporters and opponents.

I am not an expert on the technical details of the attacks which the U.S. authorities offered or the views of those who contradict or refute the official version as in this film; therefore, I refrain from passing any final  word on the issues  involved. However, I try to find more about the events and  will continue to do so because this tragic date became the sign-post, which was  used by the  Bush-Cheney administration to  start the wars of  aggression and global terror that resulted in the occupation and destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan,  the  deaths of  more than a million people and the uprooting  of the  millions of people. The present U.S. adminstarion under President Obama has not only continued the wars of aggression of his prdecessor but also extended them to other countries and areas by using advanced techonlogical means such as drone attacks to kill and destroy with impunity and without any accoutability for his actions to anyone in the world.

No matter  who were the actual criminals or conspirators who committed the crimes on 9/11 that resulted in the deaths of 2749 Americans, one thing is absolutely clear that the people of Iraq and its ruler Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the 9/11.  The people or the rulers of Afghanistan or Pakistan were not involved  in this crime either.  Even if  any individual from Afghanistan or Pakistan may have been involved in this crime in some way or the other that should have been the  act of an individual. The people of Afghanistan or Pakistan had no part in such a crime, but they are still being killed by  the  U.S-led NATO forces and American drone attacks.

I assume it is only fair that  viewers should have a chance to see the whole film open-mindedly, without any  mental inhibitions.  Whether they  agree with every single detail of the happenings or  not is for each individual to discuss and decide after a critical scrutiny of the  well-known  story. But there is no doubt that some  viewers will have some questions about the main course and the details of the  events. Those who are interested in finding the facts will have to do some research themselves to find the  answers to such questions. No doubt, the matter is complicated and it is not easy to disentangle the facts from the legends. Consequently, there lies the challenge to those who aspire to find the truth about the 9/11.
