May 20th 2014:  "2001: A Coup Odyssey - The Mechanics and Politics of the War on Freedom"
Since 2001 and besides the many wars overseas, Americans' political freedoms and legal protections have come under severe attack.  The 2001 PATRIOT Act wiped out privacy rights and government search and seizure limitations and opened the gates to limited government spying on citizens.  

The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has shredded habeas corpus (the right to a lawyer and a courtroom) and your Fifth Amendment legal rights of due process if the government merely thinks you are merely associated with those deemed "terrorists".  The 2013 version of the NDAA says that the government can strip you of your U.S. citizenship if you are suspected (not convicted) of terrorist activities.    In one sense, the "war on terror" has become a "war of terror" by the US government against its own citizens.

How did this war against Americans by their own government get started?  What major details were left out of the general discussion about what happened on September 11th 2001 and why wasn't it covered in the general mainstream news media?  Was there any serious investigation into the alleged criminal actors, or the mechanics of falling buildings, or the expert aircraft piloting by low level amateurs, or the paralysis of the government’s response to the hijackings, or what about the subsequent wars at home and abroad?

But the question is still asked:  Beyond the "official" conspiracy theory, what factors were left out of the government's 9/11 Commission Report that allows reasonable people to call out for a new real investigation of what actually happened on that terrible day?
