In the Spring of 2002, I began assaulting my friends and acquaintances in the mass media with LAPD narcotics officer turned “info-cop” Mike Ruppert’s powerful essay, "Oh Lucy! -- You Gotta Lotta 'Splainin’ To Do”: A Timeline Surrounding September 11th -- If CIA and the Government Weren’t Involved in the September 11 Attacks What Were They Doing?
Mike’s eye-popping, prodigious assemblage of published facts blasted white lightning through my axon pathways and put down whole new constellations of dendrites when brain synapses rewired through enlightening insight. I would never be the same. His was one of the first compilations of information pointing to evil acts by criminal elements of our government I encountered, so I spread it wide and far: Judy Woodruff. Helen Thomas. Sam Donaldson. Marty Schram. CNN Headline News chief, Teya Ryan. Aaron Brown. And, many, many others. Funny, nary a peep.
