#WTC #Building7 was the first steel skyscraper in history to collapse primarily due to fire. Furthermore, it collapsed at free fall speed, which is physically impossible. It’s one of the clearest examples from #September11 that show we’ve been lied to about the whole thing.
And we’re supposed to believe that the BBC just made an honest mistake by reporting it’s collapse well before it actually happened. #NeverForget
I suppose it’s also just a coincidence that #Building7 is where most of the relevant government agencies had offices in the city. #FalseFlag

What happened on 9/11/01 was terrible. None of the 3k individuals who died did anything to deserve their fate. It would be a miscarriage of history, however, to pretend that the United States was the victim. The US has caused serious death and destruction in the entire region
known as the Middle East since 1953. Our government overthrew popular leaders and installed tyrannical puppets that murdered their own people because they were sympathetic to US "interests." We instituted economic sanctions (terrorism) that resulted in millions of innocent
deaths in the region. In the 90s, Madeline Albright was asked on national TV if the 500,000 CHILDREN that died from US sanctions in Iraq were worth it. Without challenging the number, she said without hesitation that it was. The US government is the reason nations like Iran

"Construction of the Issoudun Aerodrome in rural France began in July 1917, and although the air base was still under construction, the first American flight students and instructors arrived for flight training in November. Image
2/ Among them was Harry Wingate, the 22-yr-old son of a GA tobacco farmer and an expert pilot. He was assigned to Training Field #8, one of 11 separate airfields, where he would teach advanced combat flight tactics-what laymen would call stunt flying- in a French Nieuport biplane Image

As a gay man, the parallels between the early years of the AIDS epidemic and our current #COVID pandemic r many. Then, as now, there are hostile govs making the situation worse. Reagan never uttered the word AIDS until pressured by the death of his friend, Rock Hudson.
His administration was populated w/homophobes who were indifferent to gay men dying from a disease transmitted primarily thru sex. There was widespread public fear/hostility, too. Many hospitals isolated AIDS patients, even demeaning them as they died.
Most of all, there was so much public stigma directed at people w/HIV-AIDS. So much fear. So much ignorance. Gay men, the primary early victims, were left to suffer alone. Even now, those at risk from #COVID r mocked.…

Trying to articulate my commemoration for #September11 but at loss of words after 20 years of what followed 9/11 & especially all what happened in last 1 month.

But here are a few thoughts from a Pakistani that takes D.C. as a 2nd home & can empathise with Americans [Thread]
1. 9/11 was a great tragedy to hit the US. But what followed was an even greater tragedy that the US inflicted upon itself along with the rest of the world - the price so many had to pay without even knowing why.

The US had the options, it chose the most catastrophic one.
2. The US had all the right intentions & reasons to wage war but the way it pursued the war which along the way got hijacked by competing interests & lobbies was a turning point for the US fate in #Afghanistan.

Pakistan saw it, warned about it & was instead shunned for it.

20 years ago, #POTUS was the leader of the free world.

Today, @POTUS is leading the nationalization of a free country.

A history🧵on how we got here..
It didn't start with #September11. Federal interventionism and expansionism began much earlier.

We dove into global conflicts in 1898, when we took Cuba, PR, Guam, and Philippines from the Spanish in a short war that began suspiciously.
Two hawkish POTUS later, #WoodrowWilson (a passive academic) established the #FederalReserve and income tax in 1913 (FTC in 1914), entered WWI and created a propaganda office in 1917, raised taxes in 1918, and formed what became the @UN in 1920.

Federal powers greatly expanded.

A 🧵:

For any of you that haven't read the full transcript of Todd Beamer's call from United flight 93 ✈️ on #September11.

Didn't take being a 👮‍♂️ or 👨‍🚒 to be a hero that day. Nope. Sure didn't. There were many heroes.
Todd: Hello… Operator…listen to me…I can’t speak very loud. – This is an emergency. I’m a passenger on a United flight to San Francisco.. We have a situation here….Our plane has been hijacked…..can you understand me?

Lisa: (exhaling a deep breath to herself) I understand…
Can the hijackers see you talking on the phone?

Todd: No

Lisa: Can you tell me how many hijackers are on the plane?

Todd: There are three that we know of.

Lisa: Can you see any weapons? What kind of weapons do they have?

Todd: Yes…. they don’t have guns….they have knives

Reflection from @ShahrarAli twenty years on from #September11 - from Coalition of Willing & Guantanamo to Shoot to Kill & domestic extremism, politicians have failed us internationally & nationally. Watch full statement here
September 11th – twenty years to the day. 2,977 people killed in a grotesque, unconscionable act of mass terroristic murder. Pure evil.
“Where were you when it happened?” Alas, many did not have the luxury of even knowing that it had happened but were soon to face the consequences of years, if not decades of failed foreign policy, or worse.

I’ve had this coffee cup for 20 years and every day I drink my coffee from it.

NO ONE ELSE is allowed to drink from it.

I remember what happened on September 11th everyday and will #NeverForget

On September 11 they started asking for help with the recovery efforts for the missing. What they didn’t specify is that they needed iron and metal workers etc not random people like me to help. BUT I went down anyway with my 2 best friends.

Was around 8pm as we walked downtown.

Passing by South Street Seaport it looked like it was snowing from all the ash & debris from the towers. Ash was at least 2 inches thick on the ground 4 blocks.

We made our way past the Wall Street Bull which was also covered in Ash.

Teaching students about the attacks of #September11 has always been difficult. But with the 20th anniversary this weekend, time has brought a new challenge: Students today have no memories of that day. So NPR checked in with educators and experts for advice. (👇Thread 👇)
First and foremost, keep it age-appropriate: @MorningsideCtr offers several lesson plans on its website but says that "children ages 4 to 7 are too young for a lesson on [9/11]. They lack the knowledge to make sense of the attacks and their aftermath in any meaningful way." (2/8)
Make room for discomfort: Teacher Brandon Graves in Louisville, Ky says the scale of pain and loss can understandably unsettle some young students. "They're not used to that," he says. "They're used to stories geared toward kids, and so there's a happy ending." (3/8)

It's so hard to believe for me that #September11 was 20 years ago. I was about 30 miles from Ground Zero, at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (now @RutgersCancer) at the time. It was VERY real to me. 1/
We normally had our breast cancer tumor board 8-9AM Tuesday morning, and #September11 was no different. near the end of the tumor board, then-director of CINJ Dr. Bill Hait poked his head into the conference room and said that a plane had hit the #WTC. 2/
It wasn't long before all non-emergency clinical activity at the cancer center and @RWJUH was halted, and all clinical staff were instructed not to leave, as we then expected mass casualties helicoptered and brought in. 3/
