First, I want to say that I am incredibly grateful for all of the diligence, the tireless hard work, the tenacity, and selfless risks that many people fighting in “the War for Truth” have taken all over the world. Men and women in the alternative media, independent journalists, bloggers, researchers, career professionals, and whistle blowers have all joined forces in the fight to free minds and to create awake and aware people out of the “Sheeple” and zombies. Without the combined efforts of all these people, the “truth” would be a much darker shade of grey. You would not be reading this had it not been for the efforts of these people, and I would be able to count myself among the zombies.
However, many people in what I like to call the “truth telling community” seem to be developing a case of tunnel vision when it comes to analyzing events, conspiracies and false flags, of which there have been so many in recent American history: The JFK assassination, The Gulf of Tonkin Incident, 9/11, the lie about Saddam Hussein having WMD’s and ties to Al Qaeda, Fast & Furious, Bankster LIBOR collusion and the Sandy Hook massacre to name just a few.
I think too many people may be getting hung up on the minute details of investigating these events to the point where they are developing “target fixation” for lack of a better term.

In my opinion, there is too much of a focus on the micro instead of the macro. I think this is especially more pronounced in complex events like 9/11 which are now almost 13 years old. People in the truth telling community seem obsessed with finding the proverbial “smoking gun” instead of investigating WHY these events were perpetrated. Too much emphasis is being placed on the HOW instead of the WHY. I want you to understand that I am not knocking anyone’s hard work or research into these topics. What I am saying is that I think some people are getting lost in the details when they already know the “truth”.
Ahhh!….but you say the devil is in the details? Not so much. The devil wants you focused on the details instead the big picture. Consider this example: Does it really matter if nano-thermite was used to bring down the World Trade Center? If you proved it was used conclusively tomorrow or 10 years ago, what do you think would happen? Would it erase the past 12 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq? Would the Patriot Act be repealed? Would the Department of Homeland Security / TSA be disbanded? Could I go through security at the next airport I visit without taking my shoes off? If you proved it, who would be held responsible… ”The Government”?…Who in the Government? And more importantly, How many Americans would even care at this point in time?
The vast and overwhelming amounts of the people in this world don’t know what to do with “smoking guns’ even if they are right in front of their face. That is reality as much as it sucks. At the same time, how much proof do you need about something? How many anomalies and coincidences do you need to add up to equal one “smoking gun”? If 9/ 11 was an inside job false flag operation, and you proved it today or 20 years from now, what then? How would this information change or un-do anything that has occurred as a result of 9/11?
“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”
~ Elvis Presley
The truth about “conspiracies” or false flags does come out many years later, usually when it is no longer relevant or it has become a moot point. The truth comes out long after the actors and conspirators in the plots are either dead or forgotten. Or… maybe the truth never comes out at all, but instead we get several versions of possible truth. Consider the following:
Towards the end of his life, in a documentary film (which everyone should see) called ‘The Fog of War‘, former US Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara said the “Gulf of Tonkin incident probably didn’t happen”. Even though this event was used as the justification to begin bombing North Vietnam, as a key player in those events (McNamara) basically admitted the whole thing was a LIE.
Was McNamara or anyone else still living at the time that was involved in this lie arrested for treason or for war crimes? Was there a new investigation opened into the event? Did this admission by McNamara bring back any of the 50,000 Americans who died in Vietnam? Did the US Government acknowledge any of McNamara’s admissions and either refute or deny anything? You already know the answers.
All of the conspiracy events and false flags mentioned above have one thing in common. They are complex events in which the real absolute “truth” will never be fully known. Author Richard C. Hoagland has a great phrase he uses to describe how the truth about events is concealed and obscured which is: “The lie is different at every level.” By this he implies that there are always multiple levels of players involved in the organization, the planning, the execution, and the investigation [The Warren Commission, the 9/11 Commission] of these types of conspiracies.
“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth”. ~ Arthur Conan Doyle
The “actual” or “real truth” as told by “the powers that be” is likely different at every level of the conspiracy. Do you think that the “truth” about Fast & Furious is the same truth for people who work inside the ATF as it is for people working for Eric Holder’s the “Justice” Department” who “investigate” it? I don’t think so. The only “Truth” is that we the people will never know what the “truth’ really is. The lie is different at every level, and it is designed to be this way.
Details and fact finding are very important in any proper analysis of any event of this type. However, I think too many people put too much attention and focus on the individual trees, instead of focusing on the forest as a whole. I am NOT saying detailed research and fact finding is unnecessary. I just wonder at what point does focusing on a past event like 9/11 or the Sandy Hook “event” become unhealthy, or obsessively so. At what point does it become a distraction from other current events? I personally know several people who have purchased every book, every video, and have read literally everything they can find on 9/11 or Sandy Hook, but are “too busy” to read a book on something highly practical like first aid or outdoor survival skills. I sometimes ask these people: “what are you looking for?” The common response is something like “conclusive evidence” or “more proof”. My response is usually something like “how much more proof do you need, don’t you have enough already?” You can have all the proof you want about something, but there will always be a large group of people that refuse to believe evidence for a variety of reasons, no matter how compelling and complete that evidence is.
“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.” ~ Albert Einstein
Even if you find that proverbial “smoking gun” the odds are that the majority of people out there are too fat, uneducated and over entertained to be interested enough to care. And the older the event, the more this becomes true. Most Americans think events of 100 years ago are ancient history.
The bottom line is that there are really no absolute truths about much of anything anymore, because the lie really is different at every level. When it comes to our own government and how it communicates and interacts with “we the people” we should now process every bit of information and communication it provides with great caution and skepticism. If you are reading this on SGT Report you probably already subscribe to this way of thinking. However, I must admit to all of you that after the debacle that has become known as ObamaCare, I thought more heads would roll. If the majority of people in this country can’t get motivated and organized enough on an issue that effects their personal health and lifespan, what would it matter to these same people if you present them with a smoking gun proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that 9/11 or Sandy Hook were false flag events?
“A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.” ~ John F. Kennedy
As long as the current system remains in place there will be more conspiracy rooted events and false flags. The important thing is fro us to fine tune our bullshit meters and recognize these events for what they are and why they were carried out, and NOT get hung up or mired down too deeply on any one of them. We all have healthy, vibrant lives to lead, which includes spreading the message of liberty and personal freedom far and wide. For an individual to be properly and effectively vigilant, it requires that individual to recognize when they are becoming overly fixated on any one target.
Tunnel vision can be deadly, and the threat matrix is already full to the brim.
Best Wishes & Stay Safe (and Warm!)
