Talking dildo posits the theory that Trump has never lied, because he just speaks a language where word meanings are completely flexible…

Donald Trump was speaking ‘Americanese,’ not lying

I am a bit disgusted today. Philip Shenon–formerly of the New York Times–has done an incredible amount of work exposing how utterly fraudulent the “9/11 Commission” actually was. It was a complete sham from start to finish. He shows us easily a hundred facts that establish how disgraceful and untrustworthy its report is. There is much laughter in the audience throughout his talk.

It is, however, not a laughing matter.

Philip Shenon: Inside the 911 Investigation Commission

 

Shenon then comes to an absurd view regarding government complicity in the attacks. He firmly presses the incompetence theory, which is of course just another theory. He says things like “it was hot” in August, and people were “lazy.”

This is journalistic malfeasance, crafting specious exculpatory excuses when thousands lost their lives and endless war was launched. The idea of powerful people allowing an attack ON PURPOSE is literally unthinkable to Philip Shenon and to his entire class of lapdog professional journalists. He may be less of a lapdog today as a result of so many revelations, but…

‘The Attacks Will Be Spectacular’

George Tenet accused the Bushies of avoiding a paper trail by ignoring meetings and warnings prior to 9/11. But the large gap in his story is that Tenet was himself actively hiding known Al Qaeda mambers living in San Diego from Counterterrorism Czar Richard Clarke. This is corroborated in the CIA Inspector General report from 2005 (page xiii, bottom). Tenet also obviously lied to the 9/11 Commission–a felony.

Consider the source…

That morning of July 10, the head of the agency’s Al Qaeda unit, Richard Blee, burst into [Cofer] Black’s office…

What can we infer from this day?

Three top CIA officers were involved: Blee, Black and Tenet. The odds are that one or more of them were not in on the grand plan, that the attacks needed to succeed in order to give America a pretext to attack Asia for the next century. The September 11th attacks provided the “new Pearl Harbor” as laid out in Rebuilding America’s Defenses, from the Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

That makes everything else in this article a half-truth, a take-it-with-a-grain-of-salt, revelation:

Rich [Blee] started by saying, ‘There will be significant terrorist attacks against the United States in the coming weeks or months.

…And the word back,” says Tenet, “‘was ‘we’re not quite ready to consider this. We don’t want the clock to start ticking.’” (Translation: they did not want a paper trail to show that they’d been warned.)

It’s entirely possible that Blee and/or Black were not co-conspirators, and that all the rest of it was theater for their benefit.

While the Inspector General makes clear that many people at CIA were aware of the Al Qaeda men in San Diego, it has a gaping hole in it, due to the ongoing cover-up of Saudi state involvement. There is a cover story that complicates matters.

It should also be mentioned that while the top CIA brass were allegedly worried that all these Al Qaeda men were “coming here,” the issuance of VISAS from SAUDI ARABIA received no attention: which is how they actually got into the country.

J. Michael Springmann has long exposed that the CIA ran the Saudi consulates and overrode State Department officers in order to sneak in “unqualified applicants” such as the 9/11 hijackers.

The more crap I read from Bigelow and Boal…

…the better Leni Riefenstahl looks in comparison.  After all the German filmmaker was merely being patriotic and supportive of her government.  She did not endorse, or worse — make light of — the torture of human beings.  The Nazi enterprise was in its infancy at the production of Triumph of the Will, prior to the atrocities we think of today.

Boal and Bigelow have no such defense.

“…Mark Boal, also a “Zero Dark Thirty” producer, accepting the prize for Best Film. Boal tackles the torture debate more directly, but not before having some fun with it. “‘Apparently, the French government will be investigating the accuracy of ‘Les Mis,'” he cracked, before noting that he and Bigelow had been eager to comment on the situation. ‘Some of you may have wondered if we would have liked to comment on that coverage,’ he added. ‘The answer is yes.” His position? “If anybody’s asking, we stand by the film.'”

Complete disregard for the accurate charges of fabricating a case for torture and of filming CIA lies as truth.  These Good Germans put Riefenstahl to shame.  These are the words of shameless, loathesome propagandists without consciences.

Naomi Wolf called out Bigelow in The Guardian:

A letter to Kathryn Bigelow on Zero Dark Thirty’s apology for torture

“By peddling the lie that CIA detentions led to Bin Laden’s killing, you have become a Leni Riefenstahl-like propagandist of torture”

While Naomi Wolf makes this categorical comparison, I’m ready to go one further and say these two, pictured above, are sufficiently worse than Riefenstahl and her pro-German government propaganda film.  With these ugly Americans  presenting America’s actions to the world, and lavishly praised by “critics” around the nation, no one should be wondering “why they hate us” for quite some time to come.
