New Movie to Challenge ‘Official’ 9/11 Story
It’s been nearly a dozen years, but Hollywood is finally voicing the doubts of Americans: we haven’t heard the real story about what happened on September 11, 2001. And it’s the government that’s hiding the whole story.
Earlier cinematic portrayals of 9/11, such as Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center or Paul Greengrass’s United 93, celebrated the heroism of the men and women who lost their lives on that day. But these movies also followed the mainstream narrative. Publicity for the new film September Morn indicates that the mainstream media is finally waking up to the possibility that we haven’t been told the whole truth.
Rather than relate the plot, early press releases for the movie try a different tactic:
“We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the tragic events of 911.”
Though the movie is still in pre-production, it is rumored that the veracity of the 9/11 story will be investigated à la the 1957 classic Twelve Angry Men…
Many of the star-studded ensemble cast have publically voiced their doubts about the government’s version of 9/11. Emmy Award winning actor Ed Asner told an interviewer:
“This country – which is the greatest, strongest country that ever existed in the world, in terms of power – supposedly had a defense that could not be penetrated all these years. But all of that was eradicated by 19 Saudi Arabians, supposedly. Some of whom didn’t even know how to fly.”
Martin Sheen, who played the president in The West Wing, came to doubt the official story as more details were revealed to the public. As he said in a 2007 interview: “[T]here have been so many revelations that now I have my doubts, and chief among them is Building 7 – how did they rig that building so that it came down on the evening of the day?”
These veteran actors, along with Woody Harrelson, Judd Nelson, Esai Morales, and Valerie Harper, are all slated to appear on the silver screen sometime in 2013. Let’s all hope that the government allows the truth of their movie to reach the general public.
