NOTHING IS TRUE - EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED
The Bush regime came under pressure on Thursday to make public the full classified version of a report from the 9/11 commission that is critical of the government's failure to heed aviation threats before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/11/politics/11terror.html
The administration delivered a declassified version of the report to the National Archives two weeks ago with numerous deletions of material it considered too sensitive for the public to see.
"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified."http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/spyring
These 9/11 conspiracy theories, long popular abroad, are gradually--though more quietly--seeping into mainstream America. Allegations of U.S. complicity in the attacks have become standard fare on talk radio and among activists on both the extreme left and the extreme right of the political spectrum.http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/defense/1230517.html
Reasonable people are entitled to wish that our government had been better prepared and more alert. But those who peddle fantasies that this country encouraged, permitted or actually carried out the attacks are libeling the truth--and disgracing the memories of the thousands who died that day.

Rahm Emmanuel, former Clinton adviser, current congressman from Illinois, staunch supporter of Israel, and suspected by many of being "Mega", the Mossad mole in the Clinton White House, has a brother, Ari Emmanuel, who just happens to be Michael Moore's agent.
A newly released memo warned the White House at the start of the Bush administration that al Qaeda represented a threat throughout the Islamic world, a warning that critics said went unheeded by President Bush until the September 11, 2001, attacks.http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/02/11/911.memo.reut/index.html
Condoleezza Rice wrote a March 22, 2004 column in The Washington Post that "No al-Qaeda threat was turned over to the new administration!"
Bush Team Tried to Kill Pre-9/11 al-Qaeda Reporthttp://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/story.jsp?story=609895
There were 52 threats that were mentioned. These were present threats - they were not historical. There were steps that could have been taken. Marshals could have been put on planes that spring. Condoleezza Rice's testimony is undermined."
In the months before Sept. 11, the Federal Aviation Administration told some of the nation's largest airports that if a terrorist wanted to hijack a plane to commit suicide in a "spectacular explosion," it would probably be a hijacking on U.S. soil rather than overseas.http://www.newsday.com/news/nationworld/nation/ny-usfaa114141640feb11,0,891124.story?coll=ny-nationalnews-headlines
"If they knew about it, why the hell didn't they do something?" said Elaine Moccia of Hauppauge, whose husband, Frank, died in Tower Two.
Our henchmen in places like Syria, Egypt, Morocco, Uzbekistan and Jordan are torturing terror suspects at the behest of a nation - the United States - that just went through a national election in which the issue of moral values was supposed to have been decisive. How in the world did we become a country in which gays' getting married is considered an abomination, but torture is O.K.?http://www.nytimes.com/2005/02/11/opinion/11herbert.html?hp
Jettisoning the rule of law to permit such acts of evil as kidnapping and torture is not a defensible policy for a civilized nation. It's wrong. And nothing good can come from it.
An audiotape purportedly of Al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri hit out at the US concept of freedom, saying it was a cloak for spreading corruption and injustice in the Islamic world.http://sg.news.yahoo.com/050210/1/3qhze.html
"I do not think that we can achieve reform while we are under American and Jewish occupation."
The day of blood and elections has passed, and the blaring trumpets of corporate media hailing it as a successful show of “democracy” have subsided to a dull roar. http://www.libertyforum.org/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=news_politics&Number=293365627
The Potemkin village of Iraqi "democracy" is barely a week old, and already it is beginning to show significant signs of wear and tear. We can hear all kinds of noises coming from behind the brightly painted façade, and some of the scenery is shaking so hard that it looks like it could come down at any moment. The sight of it would be funny, except that so many have died for this farcical spectacle.http://antiwar.com/justin/
Let's have the results of that election, which cost some 1,500 American lives – and as many as 100,000 Iraqi lives – made public, declare victory, and bring the troops home.
