who, what, where, when and why and even how

who, what, where, when and why and even how

see 50 sec video: Politicians Simply Lying to the American People about Motive

"I think we have misled ourselves and misled the American people" - Rep. William Delahunt

"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." - Michael Scheuer, Former CIA Bin Laden Unit Chief

I think the lying plays a role in why so many people buy into the 9/11 conspiracy crap. I think people who are reluctant to state clearly that the 9/11 attacks were "in response for the American political, economical, and military support to Israel the state of terrorism and to the rest of the dictator countries in the region." to quote the terrorists' letter from 1993 which spelled out the same motives.

Those who talk about 9/11 but artificially omit mention of the very motive for the crime are doing a disservice to the American people. It isn't just politicians who play this game, it is anyone who decides that the standard questions of "who, what, where, when and why and even how" should be edited to omit "why" because it is "sensitive." Griffin does indeed mock the "hatred of our freedoms" motive AS IF IT WAS THE "OFFICIAL MOTIVE!"

Omiting "why" in the standard "who, what, where, when and why and even how" is an ugly lie of omission. I think a good case can be made for how this lie of omission helps the conspiracy crap and vice versa.
