Hollywood, Iraq and 9/11: Reinforcing the Party Line
Paul Joseph Watson | November 28 2005
Moviegoers in the upcoming months will be bombarded by films about the Iraq
war and 9/11. These movies will uniformly reinforce the official party line
that 9/11 was carried out by 19 Arabs with box cutters and that the invasion
of Iraq was a heroic act of liberation in the defense of America.
The Associated Press reports that several productions are set to hit both
big and little screens, including the dramatized story of what happened on
The official story that passengers intercepted hijackers and crashed the
plane into an empty Pennsylvanian field as the ultimate sacrifice has been
thoroughly discredited by the alternative media.
Numerous credible individuals including former military and commercial
pilots have come forward and stated that the plane was shot down.
However, the movie version will reinforce the "let's roll" myth, ignoring
such obvious evidence of a shoot down as the fact that the debris field of
Flight 93 was eight miles wide, which is impossible unless it was shot down
in mid-air and then traveled for a short period, raining down debris as it
Other productions will prop up the government conspiracy theory that 19 men,
at least seven of which are still alive, and men who couldn't even fly
puddle-jumping Cessnas conducted the biggest terror attack in history and
that it was all planned from a cave in Afghanistan.
We will be subjected to tear jerking scenes where innocent people scream in
terror as buildings crumble around them, without for a second stopping to
ask why three steel buildings collapsed from "fire damage" for the first and
only time in world history.
The criminal elements of the government that carried out 9/11 are hopeful
that these re-enactments will put people to sleep and reduce skepticism of
their fairy tale official version of events. We the alternative media should
prepare ourselves to counter these psy-op propaganda flicks as and when they
If your stomach isn't already convulsing, Newsmax is reporting that arch
Neo-Con Bruce Willis is planning to produce a pro-war Iraq film that relates
"the success" of liberating the Iraqi people. This is all the more vomit
inducing on the day that former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, himself a
former school bus bomber and CIA stooge, admitted that human rights in Iraq
are in a worse state now than they were under Saddam.
Willis is at pains to portray Iraq as a virtual paradise and he can't
understand all the negative media coverage of what is happening on the
ground. Again, barf bags on standby, every Bush worshipping Neo-Con that
lauds around righteously proclaiming "I visited Iraq and everything's fine
and dandy" is given a carefully planned and screened 30 minute tour around
the green zone, the only secure site in the country, and comes home
indignantly recommending the country as a holiday resort.
The reality, as 100,000 plus Iraqis and 2,000 plus of our own troops have
discovered, is somewhat different.
But Bruce's latest venture has the full support of the Pentagon because it's
a recruiting poster for more American boys and girls to go and perish in a
desert for the New World Order empire builders.
It is common knowledge in Hollywood that if you want access to military
bases and military technology and hardware, as a movie producer you have to
bend over backwards to the Pentagon and allow them majority control in
Pentagon support translates into millions of dollars shaved off the film
budget. In many cases, the absence of that support means the film doesn't
get made. This means that movie producers are at the mercy of backroom DoD
directors who can effectively re-write historical events and broadcast them
to millions as accurate depictions of the real thing.
Decades old psychological studies confirm that when you're watching
television the higher brain regions (like the midbrain and the neo-cortex)
are shut down, and most activity shifts to the lower brain regions. These
lower brain regions cannot distinguish reality from fabricated images (a
task performed by the neo-cortex), so they react to television content as
though it were real.
Therefore the warped fictional portrayal of a historical event becomes the
only truthful depiction of that event in the mind of the viewer.
Black Hawk Down was a big favorite amongst the top brass, portraying the
military in a positive light. The Pentagon shipped four Black Hawk
helicopters and 35 Army Rangers to the filming location in Morocco.
Portraying war or the military in a bad light in any scene merits an
immediate blacklisting from the Pentagon. If the film isn't an out and out
recruiting campaign then they're not interested.
The producer of Independence Day, Dean Devlin, went to extraordinary lengths
to get Pentagon support for his 1996 release. In a letter he wrote, "Just
wait, there has never been any aerial footage like this before, if this
doesn't make every boy in the country want to fly a fighter jet, I'll eat
The Pentagon were not interested because the military were portrayed as
inept in a handful of scenes in the movie. Similarly, Apocalypse Now, with
its strong anti-war message was rebuffed by the DoD.
They make prostitutes of us all because they want us to sell out to their
point of view," said filmmaker Oliver Stone, who was refused military
assistance for his Vietnam War-era films Platoon, Born on the Forth of July
and Heaven and Earth.
"They want a certain kind of movie made," Stone said. "They don't want to
deal with the down-side of war. They assist movies that don't tell the truth
about combat, and they don't assist movies that seek to tell the truth about
combat. Most films (about the military) are recruiting posters. They are
The state cringes when movies that actually make people think hit the big
screen, and there is a growing movement within Hollywood to push the genre
firmly in that direction, but they salivate when an audience can be
hoodwinked into buying their crap through the medium of entertainment.
Fewer and fewer people read newspapers. Less people are watching TV news.
The majority of the propaganda has shifted to television programs and
movies. Watching back to back Simpsons episodes this weekend, the viewer is
left with the impression that lesbian marriage is wholesome and normal and
in the next instance, only a global government can save us from global
We must increase our vigilance of where the propaganda is emanating from
and, as in John Carpenter's They Live, shut it off right at the source.
