On the floor, the assassination of 1 man in 1963 and the homicide of 1000’s in 2001 might not appear to have a lot in frequent. Nevertheless, writer Peter Scott claims that the 2 incidents in US historical past are linked by “deep politics”. In his e-book “The Struggle Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11 and the Deep Politics of Struggle” he describes “deep politics” as “sustained patterns of collusion” underlying main occasions.
They don’t seem to be essentially the plans of 1 conspiring group, however subtly formed by the desire of individuals in energy over time, he provides.
Scott makes a number of key claims concerning the components that hyperlink the 2 stunning occasions.
Firstly, he notes that for each moments, key senior members of presidency have been in a foreign country.
He additionally attracts consideration to insider purchases within the inventory markets – for Scott, this means “particular data” of what was to come back.
Was JFK’s assassination just like 9/11?
JFK was elected US President in 1960
Each occasions have been gateways to already supposed wars
Similarities additionally centre across the identities of the culprits behind each crimes.
The suspected shooter of JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, was rapidly recognized, however utilizing previous data on file that didn’t match what Oswald truly regarded like on the time. –
For Scott this might point out that Oswald was not picked up from eye-witness accounts, however pre-selected because the “designated offender”.
Equally, an inventory of hijackers was issued on 9/11, 4 minutes earlier than Flight United 93 got here down in Pennsylvania.
In response to Scott, investigators did this “drawing on pre-9/11 recordsdata”, exhibiting that intelligence companies “knew what was coming”.
In 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald emerged as a “lone deranged gunman who acted alone,” a indisputable fact that some nonetheless query.
Scott factors to occasions that immediately preceded the 2001 assaults, when the US authorities used the identical language round a terrorist incident immediately linked to the 9/11 hijackers, regardless of clear proof on the contrary.
In 1990, El Sayyid Nosair, who was skilled by 9/11 hijacker Ali Mohamed, was pronounced to be a “deranged gunman” who “acted alone” by police within the homicide of Meir Kahane, the founding father of the Jewish Defence League.
This was regardless of coaching manuals, bomb-making tools and different proof that “may have been used to convict” Mohamed, says Scott.
9/11 was some of the horrific terror assaults in historical past
For Scott, this means that the lone-gunman narrative is a instrument utilized by the US “to guard somebody or one thing else”.
He additionally says that prior investigations into the eventual culprits of each acts was “impeded”.
Oswald “was inexplicably taken off the FBI’s watch record” in 1963, when he ought to have been a candidate for elevated surveillance, in accordance with Scott.
In distinction, the “CIA failed to inform the FBI for months” when two of the 9/1 terrorist arrived within the US in 2000, in a sample of “withholding data”.
Some of the commented-on components in each occasions are the key wars that adopted.
Lyndon Johnson changed JFK within the White Home after his tragic demise
After JFK’s demise, American army involvement in Asia was upped, resulting in the Vietnam warfare.
Equally, the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq was spearheaded by the US very shortly after 9/11.
Scott sees them each as “gateways to already supposed wars”.
The supposed consequence, he says, is to engineer a state of “everlasting warfare” – and a state of perpetual warfare provides a “everlasting justification for curbing liberties”.
