9/11 Paranoid

note by Nicholas Lehmann

The shock of September 11th, along with the enormity of the evident failure of the American invasion of Iraq, is simply incommensurate with what we are conditioned to expect as we watch the unspooling of American history. It feels as if a new factor has to be added – as if some additional, unofficial force must have been at work. Otherwise, no explanation of what happened could possibly make sense. And the facts presented in these films (“Outfoxed”, “Loose Change”, “Uncovered”, “Hijacking Catastrophe”), and the mountain of related material on the same subject, aren’t invented.
