|War and Terror: George Monbiot's Sour 9/11 Grapes|
Thursday, February 22 @ 04:05:45 AST
|By Kurt Nimmo, kurtnimmo.com|
February 20th 2007
It stinks of desperation. George Monbiot, inveterate leftist of the foundation financed environmentalist persuasion, has once again taken a swing at the "conspiracy idiots" who believe government is capable of mass murder, including the reflexive murder of its own subjects.
Not unlike his brethren, most notably Noam Chomsky and Alex Cockburn, Monbiot buys the Ward Churchill version of events in regard to the attacks of September 11, 2001—that is to say Osama and a small number of cave-dwelling Wahhabi fanatics magically made NORAD stand down and defied the immutable laws of physics, thus delivering one to the conclusion a piece of paper cannot be slipped between Monbiot and the moonstruck followers of the neocons, as they all buy the same Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

|Inside U.S.A.: Missing Link Atta 'Martyrdom' Video Appears Five Weeks Before Election|
Monday, October 02 @ 09:25:04 AST
|By Kurt Nimmo, kurtnimmo.com|
Suddenly, with the midterm election five weeks away, a previously undiscovered video emerges, showing Mohammed Atta "reading his ‘martyrdom' will inside Afghanistan at Usama bin Laden's headquarters."
In another segment, Atta appears with Ziad Jarrah, who, according to the official nine eleven fairy tale, was the pilot of "United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers apparently stormed the flight deck," according to Fox News.
As an extra added bonus, the tape shows Ramzi Binalshibh, the "senior" al-Qaeda leader and Hamburg cell member, supposedly captured after a gunbattle in Karachi, Pakistan, on September 11, 2002, and handed over to the United States.

|Inside U.S.A.: A Third to Half of Americans Still Link Saddam, 9/11|
Wednesday, September 13 @ 05:17:50 AST
|The Enduring Power of Ignorance, and Need to Fight It |
By Gary Leupp, dissidentvoice.org
The caption of the angus-reid.com report was "Some Americans Still Link Hussein to 9/11." Some, indeed. As of September 2006, 46% of Americans asked, "Do you think there is a link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 terrorist attacks?" said yes. 50% said no, and 4% said they weren't sure in a poll with a 3.2% margin of error. In other words, fully half of us link Saddam and the 9/11 attacks. (The poll was taken Sept. 1-5, 2006.)
Of course, it's all in the wording of these questions. There might have been a different result had the pollsters asked, "Do you still think there is a link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 terrorist attacks?" or "Given the fact that no expert has been able to establish any evidence for an operative relationship between al-Qaeda and Saddam, and that only people who never pay attention to the news think that anymore, do you think personally still think there is a link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 terrorist attacks?" (Don't laugh at the tendentiousness built into my rewritten questions. The online polls conducted by the cable networks are often just as skewed.)

|War and Terror: Annals of Liberation: The Noble Fruits of 9/11|
Monday, September 11 @ 05:29:43 AST
|By Chris Floyd, chris-floyd.com|
Let us pause on this day of solemn remembrance and take stock of what our noble Leader has done in the world with the vast storehouse of "political capital" he received from the "new Pearl Harbor" that his noble captains Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Libby (and brother Jeb) once openly called for – in September 2000 – in a document published by their noble organization of selfless zealots for global altruism, The Project for a New American Century. Now, on this solemn occasion, as the noble Leader himself takes to the airwaves to remind us of his nobility in those dark days after the attack that his noble captains had so presciently yearned for, let us assay just one small gleaning of the great and noble crop of freedom the Leader has harvested with the seeds from what he has often called the "opportunity" provided by the murder of almost 3,000 American citizens and nationals from many other countries.

|War and Terror: 9/11 Patsies Make Bin Laden Video Cameo Appearance|
Saturday, September 09 @ 13:06:21 AST
|By Kurt Nimmo, kurtnimmo.com |
Unfortunately, due to the emotional nature of the September 11, 2001, attacks, a large number of Americans will undoubtedly buy into the latest Osama bin Laden video purporting to show the Evil One lavishing attention on alleged hijackers Wail al-Shehri and Hamza al-Ghamdi prior to their supposed martyrdom on American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 respectively.
Never mind that Wail al-Shehri and his brother, Waleed al-Shehri, were both reported to have been found alive and well, according to the BBC. However, the intelligence patsy version of the al-Shehri brothers, according to the Washington Post and Arab News, disappeared after boasting of wanting to go off and fight the jihad in Chechnya in December, 2000.

|War and Terror: Gullible Americans|
Wednesday, August 16 @ 11:16:14 AST
|By Paul Craig Roberts|
08/14/06 Information Clearing House
I was in China when a July Harris Poll reported that 50 percent of Americans still believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when Bush invaded that country, and that 64 percent of Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein had strong links with Al Qaeda.
The Chinese leaders and intellectuals with whom I was meeting were incredulous. How could a majority of the population in an allegedly free country with an allegedly free press be so totally misinformed?
The only answer I could give the Chinese is that Americans would have been the perfect population for Mao and the Gang of Four, because Americans believe anything their government tells them.

|Inside U.S.A.: Michael Moore's Patriotism|
Monday, October 18 @ 21:44:38 AST
Filmmaker Michael Moore is a controversial figure. The left loves him for having the courage to shine the light of truth on the abuses of power and privilege that have defined the past 3 years of American history.
For exactly the same reason, the right hates him. And most of America's elite media have a hard time figuring out what to do with him - they cannot dismiss the most successful documentary filmmaker in American history, yet they do not feel comfortable giving the man and his ideas the attention that is usually afforded so successful and broadly recognized a commentator on the Zeitgeist.
When Moore appears in Madison tonight, for an 8 p.m. get-out-the-vote rally at the Memorial Union Terrace, all of the passions and conundrums associated with the man who made the film "Fahrenheit 9/11" will be on display. There will be fans, there will be protesters, and there will be folks trying to make sense of the phenomenon. And, as is the case everywhere that Moore goes, there will be passionate debate about not just the issues of this election but the direction of this country.

|War and Terror: Critiquing the critique|
Friday, July 09 @ 10:52:48 AST
|Pandering to the lies the Left tells itself about the Democrats |
By Stephen Gowans
Robert Jensen, a professor of journalism at the University of Texas, has written a penetrating and mostly cogent critique of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, in which he argues the filmaker's documentary panders to the lies Americans tell themselves about the US military protecting Americans' freedom, rather than projecting US power abroad.
Calling the film conservative, and not the far-Left critique it's believed to be, Jensen takes issue with Moore's attributing the US drive to war to the business dealings of the Bush family, rather than recognizing empire-building as a regular feature of US foreign policy, as ardently pursued by Democrat as Republican presidents.

|War and Terror: Fahrenheit 9/11 is a Stupid White Movie|

|What Michael Moore Misses About the Empire|
by Robert Jensen
I have been defending Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" from the criticism in mainstream and conservative circles that the film is leftist propaganda. Nothing could be further from the truth; there is very little left critique in the movie. In fact, it's hard to find any coherent critique in the movie at all.
The sad truth is that "Fahrenheit 9/11" is a bad movie, but not for the reasons it is being attacked in the dominant culture. It's at times a racist movie. And the analysis that underlies the film's main political points is either dangerously incomplete or virtually incoherent.

|War and Terror: Mohammad Atta and the 911 cover up in Florida|
Thursday, June 17 @ 06:17:50 AST
|INN WORLD REPORT
HICKS: The new book is called Welcome to Terrorland, about Mohammad Atta and the 911 cover up in Florida. There is a lot to talk about here. You are unique because a lot of these 911 books are speculative. But you do did two years of independent research in Florida obviously putting yourself through a lot of risk and danger. We want to jump in and talk about Amanda Keller, Mohammad Atta's girlfriend and maybe go to a clip later, but before we do that give us the summary of what you've found in Florida.
HOPSICKER: What I found in Florida was that the government story about the terrorist conspiracy's activities before September 11th is not just an error, it s a lie. The time line is wrong. The FBI's timeline is wrong. Everything they are doing is designed to protect an operation that was under way in southwest Florida that trained, between 1999 and September 2001, literally hundreds of Arabs to fly. In other words, in 1998, there were two or three Arabs learning how to fly, by the end of '99 it was flying hundreds of them. So obviously there was a covert operation going on; the flight school where Mohammad Atta went to, Huffman Aviation in Florida is not a business and was not operating like a business. So it was, and is, something else.

|Inside U.S.A.: Bush Knew, But Failed to Act|
Thursday, April 08 @ 19:48:34 AST
|Rice (and the Record) Proves It|
By Wayne Madsen
Condoleezza Rice's testimony before the 911 Commission on April 8 provided yet more proof that the Bush administration and some within the intelligence community were aware before 911 of specific domestic terrorist threats by Al Qaeda cells operating within the United States.
Many of those who watched Bush's impassive reaction on television the morning of 911 to being told by his Chief of Staff Andy Card during a visit to the Emma Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida that two planes had struck the World Trade Center towers were genuinely puzzled by the president's unusual facial response. The 911 Commission hearings may have stumbled on to the reason for the ho hum reaction -- that the attacks came as no real surprise to Bush. In fact, in answer to a question by Richard Ben Veniste, the former Watergate committee counsel, Rice confirmed that the August 6, 2001, President's Daily Brief (PDB), which the White House had steadfastly refused to release to either the Commission of the public, was titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States.'' She added that the PDB included information on the FBI field offices pursuing "70 full-field investigations" of Al Qaeda cells in the United States. "I don't remember the Al Qaeda cells as being something that we were told we needed to do something about," Rice testified to the Commission.

|Inside U.S.A.: Richard Clarke: CFR Insider, Darling du Jour for Liberals|

March 27, 2004; www.kurtnimmo.com
Here's a few things about Richard Clarke generally overlooked or glossed over by the Bush Ministry of Disinformation and so-called Liberals who make him out to be some kind of hero:
Clarke is a member of the Council On Foreign Relations. In other words, the New World Order club that has a vested interest in creating and perpetuating the evil Muslim cave dwellers myth and the profitable war on (some) terrorism.

|War and Terror: 9/11 Commission: A Week of Lies and Spin|
Sunday, March 28 @ 16:33:48 AST
|By Kurt Nimmo, www.kurtnimmo.com|
In regard to the 9/11 hearings: Why should you believe anything said by a group of demonstrated liars? The Bush administration has lied consistently and conducted business under a cover of "executive" secrecy, so why should you believe a single word they say? They have thwarted the 9/11 commission at every turn. All told, the 9/11 commission is a PR stunt and whitewash. Like the Kennedy assassination, people will be speculating on what really happened for decades to come. It is unlikely the truth will ever be revealed, at least not during our lives. As Joe Pesci, portraying David Ferry in Oliver Stone's JFK, said of the Kennedy assassination: "It's a mystery, it's a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma!"
