What neither Maté nor Dore understand is that 9/11 exposed Amy Goodman and the entire fake “left” foundation-funded media complex. They were now on the side of the CIA and censoring out dissenters. People like Chomsky set the tone and–generally–no one who disagreed was allowed to challenge their orthodoxy.

DN did allow on a couple of 9/11 skeptics:

The theologian David Ray Griffin was allowed on but set up with an adversarial attack dog, which he was not informed about beforehand. It was a gotcha hit piece to discredit Griffin on the air, not to examine the massive amount of information he had written about. The headline says it all: “Debate,” which he didn’t know he was there to debate in the first place.

The Israeli angle was explored at DN one time as well, when they had on Christopher Ketcham six years after the attacks. The spin wasn’t that the Israelis were in any way complicit in the attacks, but they were only “Tracking the Hijackers,” which is the quasi-official fairy tale.

She’s pushing discredited chemical weapons lies. And she should be stopped.

Douglas Valentine on Ellsberg and the CIA
Douglas Valentine on Scahill’s Dirty Wars


PFB contributor Douglas Valentine has alerted me to his audio podcast interview with James Corbett and Corbett Report.

Explosive revelations cast doubt on the sincerity of whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and potential CIA motivations for releasing the “Pentagon Papers” at the moment they were published.  Ellsberg’s own hidden history as a CIA operative is brought out, and Valentine ties investigations into the Phoenix Program and CIA connected drug smuggling to the timing of the release.  This is a side of history that few have ever considered before, and it should be heard in full.

Valentine takes on the fake left media establishment as well.  CIA is off limits at DemocracyNow, The Nation, Mother Jones et al.  This is my own view as well, and this information is quite valuable to those seeking the full truth.

Regarding Jeremy Scahill (DemocracyNow contributor) and his new film Dirty Wars, Valentine calls out the history as “thin” and pointedly avoiding the CIA’s longstanding and central role in these dirty wars.

“And in fact when the FBI saw what was going on and how the CIA intended to treat him,  they withdrew, because they were afraid it was criminal.  And in fact one of the FBI agents told headquarters of the FBI, he thought that the CIA interrogators should be arrested.”


Mayer Interview Begins About 10 Minutes Injane-mayer.

We’re told repeatedly how we should praise the “strong women” like director Kathryn Bigelow and her CIA protagonist in Zero Dark Thirty, despite the latter being a torturer and war criminal in real life.

What about strong women who don’t torture and commit murder for the state?  Like Amy Goodman, Jane Mayer, Sibel Edmonds, Colleen Rowley, Medea Benjamin, Jill Stein and Cynthia McKinney?  Their stories remain off the radar, off the mainstream news, and off the minds of Americans who are increasingly indoctrinated to worship the military and militarism.  Those who stand up for human rights and opposed to war and torture are sidelined in this culture, despite their allegedly valued “strength” and character.

“They got a lot of bad information, and they have radicalized the world against the United States.”




Mayer wrote about the CIA Officer Alfreda “Frances” Bikowsky in her book, detailing an aggressive, felonious CIA manager who reveled in the torture of Khalid Shiekh Muhammad.  She also sent an innocent tourist to be tortured in Afghanistan for 5 months and refused to release him even after being informed by the German government that his passport was legitimate.

Bikowsky is the obvious real-life model for Zero Dark Thirty’s protagonist played by Jessica Chastain, and named as “Maya.
