"Why do today what you can put off 'til tomorrow"

Most of you have probably heard my thoughts on the whole 9/11 conspiracy theory.  I firmly believe that what transpired that day was a rouse for a much bigger prize and thousands of our fellow American's paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Slowly more and more American's are beginning to question what really happened, and for the first time ever a mainstream publisher (Image Comics) is backing an "indy" title that hopefully will get people talking.

The Big Lie is the story about the wife of a victim finding a way to travel back in time to warn her husband about the impending danger.  While ultimately nothing is stopped, the well written story is able to plant the seeds needed for discerning citizen's of this great country to hopefully want to find out more.

High level concepts like prior knowledge, warnings, down to eye witness reports and types of explosives are all briefly discussed. They could have easily turned this into a full length graphic novel covering every topic, but wisely they just want to offer the "what if" and get you to start asking some tough questions.

I believe that this comic will likely sell out as it is probably under ordered and once main stream picks up on it the demand will shoot through the roof (i.e. along the lines of killing off a character, or an appearance of Obama, etc).  So if you are speculating, this one could be a gold mine for you.  Of course the media could just as easily "forget" to cover this comic as part of the "cover up".  You can read the preview here.


I went to my LCS to get the comic and he only ordered 4 copies total and I was able to get one.  The rest are all gone.  So he at least has a sellout.  One of the cool things about this comic is that on the back cover every victim is listed.  Not sure if Image Comics is going to print extra and give a copy to each surviving family, but if they don't I know I personally would want to have a copy with my relative's name on it.

Also my wife said that she is actually looking forward to reading this comic (she has never read one).

My opinion on the topic at hand

Hindsight is always 20/20...except when trying to cover something up.  No one is disputing that airliners were hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Center.  No one is disputing that thousands of innocents were murdered.  The facts remain that there is no way the airplanes could have taken down the towers (and the third building - #7).

Maybe the whole thing can be explained that tall buildings in NYC all have been prewired to come down and they just don't want to alert the public.  Even if this is the case and buildings can be "pulled" why wouldn't they wait to pull the two towers until after everyone had gotten out that possibly could?

Below are some videos that you might want to check out for more information.  You can also visit for more information as well.
