Today's Cartoon: George W. Bush Addresses Nation on 5th Anniversary of 9/11

Alright... so 5 years later and what exactly are "The Lessons of 9/11"?

You know, I wonder how anyone is expected to "learn" anything from the events of September 11th, 2001 when there are STILL so many people (myself included) who are not even sure they understand what actually happened on that day. Oh sure, you could just accept the government's version of events and leave it at that; but what about all the valid questions being raised about 9/11 that continue to (deliberately?) go unanswered by these officials?

The way that I know that these 9/11 "conspiracy theories" are really beginning to gain acceptance among Americans (and Canadians), is the fact that they are starting to receive a lot more attention from the mainstream media. And while the intent of this coverage may an effort to debunk these "theories", bare in mind that during last year's 9/11 anniversary there was barely any mention of even the existence of such arguments.

During President Bush's address last evening, he mentioned the need for Americans to unite and fight against "terrorism", by using 9/11 as his rallying cry (as usual). The problem is that every time he invokes "The Lessons of 9/11", it also raises all the "conspiracy theories" along with it.

It just seems to me that if the President of the United States wants to continue to use 9/11 as justification for his ever expanding global war on "terrorism" and unite Americans to it's cause, his administration is going to have to do a lot more to address "The Questions of 9/11" other than dismissing those who ask them as "conspiracy theorists". I mean, after 5 years what else could they possible have left to hide, except maybe the truth?
