Media Are Now Whitewashing Nazis They Had Previously Condemned



Donald Trump just promised to expose the 9/11 attacks (2.19.2016)

NOW — he may be getting it “right.”




Regarding Counterpunch: Bush, 9/11, and Iraq: Trump Gets It Right


Layers upon layers of spin, one wonders why these people write if they have no actual commitment to writing true statements. If you’re going to address a serious topic like the September 11th attacks, yet you know next to nothing about it, the prudent move is to just shut the fuck up.

Counterpunch likes this limited hangout and even publishes radical libertarian/anarchists to make it:

“All we need to know is that Bush and his top people, starting with Vice President Dick Cheney, were too busy in their first eight months in office to bother about al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.”


That is not “all we need to know” at all.

In fact, it’s not what we actually know, those of us who look into the matter. It is an absurd excuse from an administration as guilty as sin, one that should have been prosecuted for large lists of crimes, but specifically for the high treason of September 11th.

Trump makes facile accusations lacking the hard facts, as expected. These are the permissible types of accusations in a land awash with spin and false history.

That he is applauded for it is pathetic.

We know the Saudi royals who aided and abetted the 9/11 hijackers. They had an open door to Bush’s oval office. One of them was nicknamed “Bandar Bush,” a top facilitator of Sunni terrorist networks in the world. He bragged of controlling Chechnya’s terrorists when he threatened the Russian Olympic games.  He also supplies nerve gas to Syrian terrorists.

We know Richard Clarke, the top counterterrorism official, was secretly cut out of the CIA’s intelligence reports on Al Qaeda members living inside the US, as was FBI. We know they were here for sixteen months, and no one bothered to arrest them. Clarke accused 50 CIA officers and specifically George Tenet of hiding the hijacker cell from him over that entire period. But that always gets ignored in these highly limited hangouts that pretend to offer some expert knowledge, and yet invariably never do.

We know that 28 pages on Saudi–and other governments–financing and assisting the purported September 11th hijackers were treasonously censored by the Bush junta, an ongoing treason continued under Barack Obama. That makes the 9/11 cover-up bigger than the office of the president.

We know more than a couple members of Bush’s illegitimate junta were members of the Project for a New American Century, whose “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” document calls for a “new Pearl Harbor” to usher in their — actual agenda, the one they actually ushered in. People include Dick Cheney, Bush’s brother Jeb, and “Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Assistant Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretaries of State Richard Armitage and Robert Zoellick, Undersecretaries of State John Bolton and Paula Dobriansky, presidential adviser for the Middle East Elliott Abrams, Defense Policy Board chairman Richard Perle, and George W. Bush’s special Iraq envoy Zalmay Khalilzad.”

We know that when tourists like Sheldon point at the “Bin Laden Determined to Strike” memo, that he ignores tons of other warnings prior to the attacks, such as this shocker: “By May 1, [2001] the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that ‘a group presently in the United States’ was planning a terrorist operation.” By July Bush’s hotel in Genoa Italy would be deemed too risky because of the threat of a suicide skyjacking, and he was personally moved to a ship. This sort of damning evidence could pile up here for several days, but why bother?

These are the facts that Trump, Counterpunch, and Sheldon Richman care nothing about. Most Americans lack the intelligence and self-respect to demand justice for 9/11. Witness the efforts of Senator Graham, and how they are completely ignored.

Cheap spin does not inform anyone, merely reinforces the willful ignorance out there, Sheldon. Ever since Noam Chomsky helped establish this culture of willful ignorance, the “who cares?” approach to high treason, we have endured this endless barrage of half-truths and sloppy propaganda lauded for its supposed depth.

Color me unimpressed.


Amnesty International: Whitewashing Another Massacre

To determine the reasons behind Israeli actions, one only has to read what their Dr. Strangeloves say – it is no secret. The aim is to create miserable conditions to drive the Palestinians off their land, warehouse the population in an open air prison called Gaza, and to disproportionately repress any Palestinian resistance. Israelis have to “kill and kill and kill, all day”. Such pathological reasoning put Israeli actions into perspective; they are major crimes, possibly genocidal. Recognition of such crimes has some consequences.


Excellent roundup of the discrepancies in the government’s story so far concerning the Tsarnaev brothers.

Continued Cover-up of Contacts of Boston Bombing Suspects with FBI and US Intelligence

This one I hadn’t heard:

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis also told the House committee that an officer of US Customs and Border Protection, a unit of the US Department of Homeland Security, who served on the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Boston and had knowledge of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s travels, did not inform any of the four Boston police officers assigned to the group.






Good roundup of the warnings that were conspicuously withheld from the local Boston/Massachusetts law enforcement officials:

“There is no innocent explanation for a decision by the FBI, the CIA and the Homeland Security Department to conceal from the state and local police, in advance of a major public event, the presence of area residents widely suspected of having terrorist connections. To even suggest that such a decision would be made by these agencies out of civil liberties concerns is preposterous.

In an attempt to deflect blame, the FBI in Boston issued a statement Thursday evening declaring that state and local members of Joint Terrorism Task Forces “are responsible for maintaining awareness of possible threats to their respective jurisdictions.” The FBI office added that all task force members have access to Guardian, a system that collects information about alleged threats and suspicious activity.

The hearing itself, the first held by Congress on the bombings, was a transparent exercise in cover-up and damage control. Neither the Republican and Democratic congressmen nor the officials who testified evinced any desire to seriously investigate the role of intelligence and police agencies in the bombings.”
