Thomas Meyer Book -- Reality, Truth and Evil

I just listened to Thomas Meyer on Tarpley's show..

http://mp3.rbnlive.com/Tarpley/0609/20060909_Sat_Tarpley1.mp3

and to my astonishment he is very clued up on PEARL HARBOR 1941. He says
that HE KNEW 9/11 was an inside job when he heard it
mentioned together with the attack on Pearl Harbour. He named SEVERAL
BOOKS that in the past had uncovered the CONSPIRACY of Roosevelt and the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, to entice the Japanese to attack, in order to have
a casus belli. The latest book by Robert Stinnet - DAY OF DECEIT was NOT
the first book on the conspiracy.

Thomas Meyer -- Reality, Truth and Evil

A slightly informative review:

In Reality, Truth and Evil, T.H. Meyer offers a profound philosophical,
historical and spiritual meditation on the meaning of the events of 9/11.
Meyer's touchstone is the Pearl Harbor attack that catapulted the US into
World War II, which he argues convincingly was set up by the Roosevelt
administration. Meyer's book takes up where David Griffin's "New Pearl
Harbor" metaphor leaves off, discussing the abundant evidence that the
architects of the 9/11 attacks consciously crafted those attacks to create
the kind of war-triggering psychic shock that, on December 7th 1941, took
a public that had been 80% antiwar and turned it into a bloodthirsty
patriotic mob bent on racist revenge against that pernicious racial
inferior, the "Jap"?a precursor to the demonized Arab/Muslim Other who,
according the Bush Administration, may be tortured, sexually abused,
murdered, kidnapped, or "disappeared" into secret CIA torture gulags for
little reason beyond ethnicity and religion.

Was 9/11 designed using the Pearl Harbor template? In answering with a
resounding "yes," Meyer covers the well-known quotes from National
Security Advisor Brzezinski and the neocon Project for a New American
Century showing that top US foreign policy strategists longed for a "New
Pearl Harbor" during the run-up to 9/11. The 9/11 psych-war operation was
prepared with the help of Hollywood, which cranked out a barrage of
patriotic, militaristic, apocalyptic films to prepare the public for 9/11,
including of course the blockbuster Pearl Harbor. (It would be interesting
to see whose idea that movie was, and who put up the $135 million it cost
to make: http://www.hollywood.com/news/detail/id/311906.) Despite the fact
that Roosevelt had perniciously slaughtered thousands of Americans on
12/7/41 to lie the nation into war, "All that mattered was that the myth
should be effective amongst the populace, who had been reminded of it only
a few months before the attacks by a sentimental Hollywood film. But to
those in the know (i.e. those who had proper information about the facts
[of the Pearl Harbor deception]) this official comparison actually
provided the real key to understanding the attacks of 2001" (p. 5).

Meyer, like Griffin and others, points out that George W. Bush was
reported to have penned an enigmatic diary entry on the evening of
9/11/01: "The Pearl Harbor of the 21st century took place today." Egged on
by cues like these, the US corporate media endlessly compared the 9/11
attacks to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Time Magazine, in its
special September, 2001 issue, resoundingly called for a response to 9/11
modeled on the US public's response to Pearl Harbor: "What's needed is a
unified, unifying, Pearl Harbor sort of purple American fury?a ruthless
indignation that doesn't leak away in a week or two."

Meyer goes beyond the above observations, cited earlier by Griffin and
others, in calling attention to Donald Rumsfeld's bizarre
Pearl-Harbor-propaganda campaign that had begun even before the Bush
Administration took office. Rumsfeld spent 2000 and 2001 carrying around
extra copies of Roberta Wohlstetter's Pearl Harbor: Warning and Decision,
praising the book to the skies, and offering free copies to all and
sundry. Wohlstetter's book, while it ostensibly supports the official myth
that Pearl Harbor was a perfidious surprise attack, includes enough
information to the contrary to enlighten the discerning reader to the
unspeakable but implicitly acknowledged truth: The Roosevelt
Administration provoked the attacks, knew they were coming, and left
thousands of sailors in harm's way as an offering to the gods of war.
Wohlstetter's book is a perfect illustration of neocon doublespeak: Tell a
vivid, simplistic, emotionally-charged lie to the masses ("Perfidious
surprise attack! Heroic purple-fury response!") yet include as a subtle
subtext the unspeakable truth that only the elite are smart enough to
discern and strong enough to handle: "Roosevelt sacrificed thousands of
American lives to the greater good of getting the US into the war."

Rumsfeld wasn't the only 9/11 suspect hyping Wohlstetter's doublespeak.
9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer cited it at the Commission's very first
public hearing: "It (Pearl Harbor?and by implication 9/11) was just a
dramatic failure of a remarkably well-informed government to call the next
enemy move in a Cold War crisis...Today it might be some of the same
words. It wasn't a Cold War crisis and it wasn't the Japanese, but it was
al Qaeda." Commission Chair Thomas Kean and his fellow Commissioner, CIA
drug runner Barry Seal's lawyer Richard Ben-Veniste "also drew on this
deceptive comparison with Pearl Harbor" (7).

Meyer shows that FDR and his brain trust were not surprised or upset after
Pearl Harbor, but?like the Bush Administration and the CIA after 9/11?
reacted as if they were overjoyed and relieved. The Bush/CIA party
commemorating (celebrating?) the 9/11 attacks was apparently a cheerful
affair: "At CIA headquarters in Langley, Bush junior celebrated a kind of
promotional party just two weeks after the attacks, assuring the assembled
CIA officials (including their boss George Tenet): ?September 11th is a
sad memory, but it's a memory...And I can't thank you enough on behalf of
the American people" (24). The official White House website story (p. 57)
has to be seen to be believed:

============ CIA and Bush HAPPY over success of 911 psyop ========

September 26th, 2001

President Thanks CIA

Remarks by the President to Employees of the CIA

Langley, Virginia

1:23 PM EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all very much. Well, George (Tenet), thank you
very much, and thanks for inviting me back. (Laughter.) There is no
question that I am in the hall of patriots, and I've come to say a couple
of things to you. First, thank you for your hard work. You know, George
and I have been spending a lot of quality time together. (Laughter.)
There's a reason. I've got a lot of confidence in him, and I've got a lot
of confidence in the CIA. (Applause.) And so should America.

===================================

Meyer is to be congratulated for calling attention to the Bush-CIA
celebration of the 9/11 attacks. But that isn't the only evidence that
Bush and top CIA officials were overjoyed, not disturbed, by 9/11. Griffin
notes Rumsfeld's unseemly crowing and military-moneygrubbing on the
evening of 9/11 itself (The New Pearl Harbor, 99-100). But it gets worse.
The preface of veteran Middle East CIA agent Robert Baer's 2002 book See
No Evil ends on an astonishing note: "The other day a reporter friend told
me that one of the highest-ranking CIA officials had said to him, off the
record, that when the dust finally clears, Americans will see that
September 11 was a triumph for the intelligence community, not a failure."
And in the October 6th, 2005 New York Times, a ex-top CIA official claims
that the intelligence community's handling of 9/11 was not a failure, but
something "good, positive, extraordinary." See: http://mujca.com/orwell.htm

Meyer's argument that 9/11 was modeled after Pearl Harbor is convincing,
and his discussion of the historical evidence is concise and compelling.
But his real contribution is to sort through the thorny moral and
spiritual issues posed by the 9/11-Pearl Harbor comparison. Many American
9/11 truth activists have argued that the Reichstag Fire is a better
metaphor than Pearl Harbor, in part because everyone agrees that Nazism
and the Reichstag Fire were heinous?while many argue that even if
Roosevelt lied the US into World War II, and sacrificed thousands of
Americans at Pearl Harbor to do it, his act was justified by the greater
good of defeating Nazism.

Meyer points out that lies, even apparent "political white lies" like
FDR's Pearl Harbor deception, are spiritually pernicious: "...Anyone who
has taken even the first faltering steps in learning the ABC of spiritual
science is aware that every lie is a murder at the level of soul" (49).
FDR, then, was not Hitler's antagonist, but his soulmate, his partner in
unspeakable evil, big lies, and mass murder. The evil of Hitler's
holocaust?which was not opposed by the allies, who chose not to bomb the
railroads leading to the camps?was echoed by the murderous intentional
firebombing of German and Japanese civilians, the use of nuclear weapons
on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the endless list of crimes against humanity
of the US National Security State, which was built upon the smoking ruins
of Pearl Harbor. In short, the big lie of Pearl Harbor only seemed to
work; its deadly effects have been poisoning American life, and the life
of the world, ever since the day of infamy.

Meyer calls us back to the eternal wisdom of the perennial philosophy,
echoed in every major religious tradition, that truth is the supreme good,
and lies the supreme evil?though the evil of the lie can never really be
supreme in the sense that truth is supreme, for truth and eternity are
identical, whereas lies are temporal ephemera doomed to dissipate with the
passage of time and rebound against their perpetrators. But a lie that
takes on the aura of truth, and becomes an unquestionable sacred myth, can
have horrifically destructive effects?as have the big lies of Pearl Harbor
and 9/11. Such lies prevent people from thinking clearly?prevent them from
thinking at all, in fact. They produce a harmful miasma that is as harmful
to spiritual and psychic health as radioactive smog is to physical health.
Meyer is a student of the mystic Rudolph Steiner, whose words spoken on
April 4th 1916 now seem chillingly prophetic: "Shortly after the year 2000
a kind of indirect prohibition on thinking will emanate from America, a
law which will aim to suppress all individual thought" (16). The
suppression of individual thought in America, the land of creative
individualism, would indeed be a planetary catastrophe. Such observations
show why the 9/11 covert operation was perhaps the worst crime against
humanity ever perpetrated. The gravity of the crime stems not from the
scale of the carnage?less than 3000 were killed, compared to millions in
other holocausts?but from the scale of the lie, which may, unless quickly
exposed, quite literally lead to the destruction of the world.

Along with his profound meditation on truth and lies, Meyer offers an
interesting Hegelian analysis of the power-machinations behind 9/11. He
argues that Anglo-American policymakers, like the Nazis whom they helped
bring to power, intentionally create conflicts in order to gain power for
egotistical ends. The Hegelian dialectic, Meyer argues, is supposed to be
about conflict-resolution, not conflict-creation. Spiritual development
involves confrontations between opposing forces and finding creative,
uplifting ways to reconcile them or otherwise achieve harmony. The
Anglo-American power elite, he argues, has taken a "satanic" turn by
trying to create or amplify unnecessary conflicts in order to reap a
harvest of power. Thus they built up Hitler, the "Communist threat," and
now the "Islamic terrorist threat" in order to seize the world's resources
and build a despotic global regime under the aegis of the New World Order?
an expression first use by Bush the Elder on September 11th, 1990!
