In 2009 VFP membership mushroomed with savvy new members who realized it wasn’t enough to protest the war if we didn’t protest the government lies that allowed the “attacks” of 9/11 to happen.
By 2008, an international team of scientists had published volumes of conclusive evidence for “explosive demolition” of the Twin Towers and WTC-7. This hard evidence and admissions by the 9/11 commission that they were “set up to fail” moved VFP members and leadership to pass a resolution to press for a new 9/11 investigation during their 2009 annual meeting.
Many VFP members know the “Tonkin Resolution” was a deliberate “False Flag” to intensify the Vietnam War with disastrous consequences to US troops, morale and civilian casualties. After Vietnam, military veterans and the American people are now obligated to be suspicious of government actions that lead to escalation of conflict and war.
THE RESOLUTION: Support a Valid Investigation into the National Security Failures of the 9/11/2001 Attacks inside the United States.
Whereas the pretext for two illegal wars of occupation, torture and war crimes was justified by the catastrophic events of 9/11/2001, and
Whereas Congress was blocked by the White House from their intended investigation in connection with the massive national security failures of 9/11/2001, and
Whereas not one person has since been held accountable for the national security failures that allowed the 9/11/2001 attacks to succeed, and
Whereas Lee Hamilton, Co-chair of the 9/11 Commission confessed that his Commission was, in his words, “Set up to fail”, and,
Whereas significant un-answered questions remain that challenge the official story of the events of 9/11/2001,
Therefore Be It Resolved that Veterans For Peace supports a legitimate and non-partisan investigation into the catastrophic national security failures of 9/11/2001.
Veterans For Peace (VFP) is a national organization of anti-war veterans and supporters founded in 1985. VFP maintains a role as an official Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) represented at the United Nations.
The organization includes men and women veterans of all eras and duty stations spanning the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), World War II, the Korean, Vietnam, Gulf and current Iraq wars as well as other conflicts. Our collective experience tells us wars are easy to start and hard to stop and that those hurt are often the innocent. Thus, other means of problem solving are necessary.
Veterans draw on our personal experiences to raise public awareness of the true costs and consequences of militarism and war – and to seek peaceful, effective alternatives.
