See video: Critical Facts Reporters Won't Report, Serious Issues which put our Lives at Risk
Former CIA Bin Laden Unit Chief Michael Scheuer said in a CNN interview that "the politicians really are at great fault for not squaring with the American people. We're being attacked for what we do in the Islamic world, not for who we are or what we believe in or how we live. And there's a huge burden of guilt to be laid at Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, both parties for simply lying to the American people."
What I see is suppression, denial and misdirection about the actual motives. And the "9/11 Truth" movement has filled this role so perfectly that powerful people like it. Chomsky is right when he points out that the 9/11 truth movement is "treated so tolerantly" and he suspects that "people in positions of power like it." He points out that "It's diverting enormous amounts if energy away from real crimes of the administration ... so much potential activist energy is directed into 9/11 discussions. From the point of view of power centers, that's great. We'll give these people exposure on C-SPAN and have their books right up front at the local bookstores. A pretty tolerant reaction. We sort of say we think it's a bad joke, but you don't get the kind of reaction you do when you really go after hard issues." p36, Chomsky, What We Say Goes: Conversations on U.S. Power in a Changing World see my blog post
Gibson: If the intelligence had been right, would there have been an Iraq war?
Bush: Yes, because Saddam Hussein was unwilling to let the inspectors go in to determine whether or not the U.N. resolutions were being upheld.
President Bush continues to lie about the very reason he started the Iraq war. And the mainstream media reporters continue to play along with the big lie! Charlie Gibson, how do you sleep at night?
"Inspections in Iraq resumed on the 27th of November, 2002. In matters relating to process - notably, prompt access to sites - we have faced relatively few difficulties, and certainly much less than those that were faced by UNSCOM in the period 1991 to 1998." - Hans Blix, 3/7/03
Blix said, "there has been an acceleration of initiatives from the Iraqi side since the end of January." He said Iraq's "numerous initiatives" "can be seen as 'active' or even 'proactive'" and that "even with a proactive Iraqi attitude ... it will still take some time." - Hans Blix, 3/7/03

Greta Van Susteren: The two big issues Americans think of when they think of Pakistan, one is you have nuclear weapons and that's always, you know, terrifying, you know when a country has unrest - you have nuclear weapons and the other is Osama bin Laden, we know - we suspect that he is hiding out in the northern part of Pakistan or that he is being hidden out there. Is Musharraf doing everything he can to protect your nuclear weapons? And number two, is he doing everything he can to help the United States in its war on terrorism?
Benazir Bhutto: Well, I think Osama bin Laden must be rubbing his hands with glee as he looks at what's happening in Pakistan and how there is civil unrest in the country, how large parts of the tribal areas have fallen under the sway of his supporters as have parts of the frontier province and now they are moving into yet another state known as the northern area. And what's frightening, Greta, is that they seem to have tons of money and they're hiring poverty stricken people from Pakistan and they're hiring poverty stricken people from nearby Uzbekistan.
