The Unspoken Truth on 9/11: “September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor” Review of documentary by Massimo Mazzucco.

WATCH AND COMMENT FOR THE PART TWO AND THREE OF THE DOCUMENTARY

There have been several good films and videos about 9/11. But the new film by award-winning film-maker Massimo Mazzucco is in a class by itself.

For those of us who have been working on 9/11 for a long time, this is the film we have been waiting for.

Whereas there are excellent films treating the falsity of particular parts of the official account, such as the Twin Towers or WTC 7, Mazzucco has given us a comprehensive documentary treatment of 9/11, dealing with virtually all of the issues.

There have, of course, been films that treated the fictional official story as true. And there are films that use fictional stories to portray people’s struggles after starting to suspect the official story to be false.

But there is no fiction in Mazzucco’s film – except in the sense that it clearly and relentlessly exposes every part of the official account as fictional.

Because of his intent at completeness, Mazzucco has given us a 5-hour film. It is so fascinating and fast-paced that many will want to watch it in one sitting. But this is not necessary, as the film, which fills 3 DVDs, consists of 7 parts, each of which is divided into many short chapters.

These 7 parts treat Air Defence, The Hijackers, The Airplanes, The Pentagon, Flight 93, The Twin Towers, and Building 7. In each part, after presenting facts that contradict the official story, Mazzucco deals with the claims of the debunkers (meaning those who try to debunk the evidence provided by the 9/11 research community).

The Introduction, reflecting the film’s title, deals with 12 uncanny parallels between Pearl Harbor and September 11.

The film can educate people who know nothing about 9/11 (beyond the official story), those with a moderate amount of knowledge about the various problems with the official story, and even by experts. (I myself learned many things.)

Mazzucco points out that his film covers 12 years of public debate about 9/11. People who have been promoting 9/11 truth for many of these years will see that their labors have been well-rewarded: There is now a high-quality, carefully-documented film that dramatically shows the official story about 9/11 to be a fabrication through and through.

This is truly the film we have been waiting for.

Uruguay: First Country to Legalize Marijuana

Following a 50-46 vote earlier this year by the Uruguayan House, last night the Uruguayan Senate voted 16-13 along party lines to approve the legalization of cultivation, sale, distribution, possession and use of marijuana by adults, making tiny Uruguay the first country to fully legalize marijuana.

The legalization proposal was put forth by President Jose Mujica, who is expected to sign the bill. The president explained that the marijuana market already exists but the ones who profit from it are criminals. “We’ve given this market as a gift to the drug traffickers,” said Mujica to Argentine news media, “That is more destructive socially than the drug itself, because it rots the whole of society.”

Uruguayans already had the legal right to possess and use personal amounts of marijuana, as is the case in much of decriminalizes South America. The new law brings the commerce in marijuana out of the criminal shadows where it can be regulated and taxed.  Initial estimates for the newly-legalized marijuana market have consumers paying $1 per gram for cannabis from licensed pharmacies with a maximum purchase of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) per month. But don’t book your flight to Montevideo just yet; only Uruguayan adults aged 18 and older who register with the government will be able to purchase weed from the pharmacies.

Personal cultivation will also be allowed in Uruguay. Adults 18 and older will be permitted to grow up to six cannabis plants in their homes per year and possess 480 grams (almost 17 ounces) at their residence. Spanish-style collectives may also be formed where 15 to 45 Uruguayan adults can collectively cultivate up to 99 plants per year.

About eight percent of Uruguay’s population consumes cannabis. While other countries have decriminalized personal possession, the cultivation, sale, and trafficking of marijuana have never been legalized to this extent in the world. Even in the Netherlands, where sale of personal amounts of marijuana in coffee shops is tolerated, the practice isn’t technically legal and neither is the cultivation necessary to supply those coffee shops. Washington State comes close, but does not allow the home cultivation and Colorado comes closer, but does not allow the collectives.

Uruguay’s government now has 120 days to regulate the marijuana market, which should put their system in place a couple of weeks in advance of what will surely be the world’s happiest 4/20 party.
