MOBY has launched an emotional attack on the US intelligence services following the terrorist strikes on NEW YORK and WASHINGTON earlier this week.
Writing from his New York apartment in a posting on his official website, www.moby-online.com, the dance star says he believes that the people of New York have been “failed” by the FBI and CIA, who “exist solely to protect us from this sort of atrocity”.
He wrote: “Forgive my anger at this…but imagine that you are Bruce Willis’ bodyguard. Now imagine that you are paid remarkably well to keep Bruce Willis from being hurt. Now imagine that while you’re on the job Bruce Willis gets beaten up and very badly hurt.
“Isn’t this analogous to the role of the FBI and the CIA and the military at this time? These organisations exist solely to protect us from this sort of atrocity.
“Very simply, they have failed us. When we pay exorbitant taxes we expect a degree of protection and security from the people who receive those taxes. They have failed us.
“The hundreds of thousands of people who will go to sleep alone because their loved ones have been killed by international terrorists have been failed by the institutions to whom they pay taxes.
“To whom they pay taxes to protect them from this sort of unspeakable atrocity. As tax-paying private citizens we have been failed by the institutions in which we once placed a modicum of trust.
“I’m sorry for sounding so clinical, but I’m fucking furious…Criticise me if you want for being out of my mind with rage, but I’ve just watched 40,000 people die.
I’ll try to sleep now but I doubt that I will.”
As previously reported, three hijacked passenger planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington earlier this week (September 11), leaving thousands feared dead. The World Trade Center’s twin towers, one of the greatest landmarks of the modern world, then collapsed within minutes.
