The US has committed horrific wrongs in the Middle East.
To take one dramatic example (which has been admitted to in 2000), the US overthrew a democratically elected leader and installed a king in 1953.
We are a nation that fought to free ourselves from a king and this is the kind of thing the CIA does! Do you have any idea of the misery all the Iranians had to suffer under during the years of the Shah?
And when some of them reacted and took hostages, the US media kept MANY Americans in the dark as to why Iran took our people hostage in 1979!!! I have actually talked with people that don't know why the hostages were taken! Many Americans don't know why the hostages were taken. This is a discrace in a free society.
The pattern of suppression of motive continues with the terrorists attacks such as in 1993 and 2001. The media manages to dupe millions of Americans about what the motives were.
Many Americans don't know why the terrorists attacked. This is a discrace in a free society.
It is sad situation when Americans don't even know why they are targeted. Powerful interests do have power. (seems many are so indoctrinated that they blurt out "conspiracy" at the very idea that powerful people do exert power)
There powerful people don't want the public to understand why they are are being targeted. You can't fool all the people but millions of Americans are fooled
Bush said we were attacked because of our freedoms and there are actually AMericans that believe this!
Not only that, Many Americans(40%), actaully think that Saddam had something to do with 9/11!! MAinstream meida has violated the rights of the AMerican people. If you don't have a clue as to what the truth is then you are not really frree. Many Americans don't know that Saddam and 9/11 were not linked. This is a discrace in a free society.
"The latest Newsweek poll, released this week, revealed that 42% of Americans continue to believe that Saddam Hussein's regime was "directly involved" in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, despite all the evidence to the contrary."
That is a God damn disgrace in a country that is supposed to be free. If you don't know the truth then freedom isn't real. You can't be ignorant and free. Three Years After 9/11: More than 40% of Americans Still Think Saddam Did It
And we are allowing this media system continue as if this is business as usual? We are in a crisis and the mainstream media is skipping along like everything is OK.
