The USA 9/11 as I remember it.

No, I was not there, but I was shaking in my boots as I drove that day while it was happening past a Master Jet base that would have been called to defend. (They were not called) I thought what if a dirty nuke is around here?

Then came the Big Lie. How easily they brainwashed the American people. First came the flag scrolls across the tv media. Then they kept mentioning twin towers, twin towers. I yelled at my TV. FOUR towers fell not two.
And sure enough twin tower memorabilia sprang up. It is hard to find many people who remember, outside of politically dedicated people, what their own eyes saw that day. An explanation of why the other two towers fell would not go so well. Faulty construction?

Later came the donations to help the grieving families. Not too unlike the Trump family, the Bush family and its operatives took money that was not theirs in the first place, decided how much should each person get, and then with the not their money, put on this caveat:
to receive the funds
Do you promise not to sue George W. Bush?

This extremely self serving action was mentioned but a few times and dropped out of the news cycle too quickly. It was another example of coddling a Republican president, as No justice for all Cannon did recently and what Scalia said when they stopped the Florida recount. (it would violate George W. Bush's rights or words to that effect)
