Anyway, the local library had the seventh season, which I checked out and watched as close to non-stop as I could. It was fairly entertaining, and involved four successive terrorist attacks, each by a different and higher level group in an ever larger and expanding hierarchy of power. I imagine that if they had gone to a fifth level, we would no doubt be introduced to the Illuminati. Meanwhile, the fourth attack involves a false flag terrorist operation. The powers (a group of military contractors in the U.S. who want to create chaos and panic in America, allowing them to take over the country) try to set up an innocent Muslim immigrant as the fall guy for the attack. Interestingly, they threaten to kill his younger brother in order to make him follow their orders. For some reason I was reminded of the recent Boston bombing attack.
I haven't watched it, but JDB pointed out that the fifth season of the show also involved a false flag terrorist attack.
Since 24 is usually viewed as a right-wing television show that tried to defend the actions of the Bush administration when it came to the war on terror, one wonders if it is legitimate to label these seasons as "9/11 Truther" shows. I would contend that yes, it is legitimate and proper. But then, I'm using a rather broad definition of what would constitute a "9/11 Truther" show, film, book, play, etc. My definition is fairly simple: any fictional work that displays a false flag terrorist attack, post 9/11. And my justification for using this definition is also rather simple. Any fictional work, post 9/11, that involves terrorist attacks, will be written with the events of 9/11 as background information, known by the authors and their intended audience. Thus, if they write a narrative of a false flag terrorist attack, they are consciously (or unconsciously, it doesn't matter) comparing that attack to the events of 9/11. This does not mean that the authors believe that 9/11 was a false flag terrorist attack. They may or may not. It does mean that they most likely know that their audience, if at all imaginative, will compare it with 9/11 and perhaps wonder if 9/11 itself was a false flag terrorist attack. In light of this fact, I think it requires re-evaluating the common view that the authors of "24" wrote only in order to try to defend the actions of the Bush administration. I suggest that it is obvious that they did not.
By the way, I don't know if that left-wing Democrat Janeane Garofalo was in any other seasons of "24," but she played a major role season 7. Perhaps this had something to do with it:
