Political language is designed... George Orwell

Quote by George Orwell: Political language is designed to make lies sou...:

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

The Government's Tale of 9/11 Isn't True

The government's tale of 9/11 isn't true.

Q&A: A New Look at the 9/11 Commission - TIME

"You have someone like Sandy Berger, who by all accounts is a decent guy, taking rather extreme measures to remove documents from the National Archives and hide them at a construction site where he could retrieve them later and destroy them. There were interviews made at the FAA's New York center the night of 9/11 and those tapes were destroyed. The CIA tapes of the interrogations were destroyed. The story of 9/11 itself, to put it mildly, was distorted and was completely different from the way things happened." John Farmer, senior counsel, 9/11 commission

"One of the harmful byproducts of not telling the truth about what happened is that it did fuel all sorts of conspiracy theories about what might have happened. If what the government is telling you isn't true, then the truth could be anything. But my experience suggests that government lacks competence to carry off an elaborate conspiracy like what is being talked about with 9/11. I think there is evidence that the truth wasn't told and that at least some of that was deliberate — but it did not occur on any sort of scale that people are imagining." John Farmer

The Propoganda War Against Conspiracy Theorists

Major media is involved in an on-going effort to vilify conspiracy theorists.

9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon

"We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth."

"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described," John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true."

John F. Lehman, a Republican commission member and former Navy secretary, said in a recent interview that he believed the panel may have been lied to but that he did not believe the evidence was sufficient to support a criminal referral. "My view of that was that whether it was willful or just the fog of stupid bureaucracy, I don't know," Lehman said. "But in the order of magnitude of things, going after bureaucrats because they misled the commission didn't seem to make sense to me."

National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States

National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States:

From the 9/11 commission hearings: "Four of the hijackers passports have survived in whole or in part. Two were recovered from the crash site of United Airlines flight 93 in Pennsylvania. These are the passports of Ziad Jarrah and Saeed al Ghamdi. One belonged to a hijacker on American Airlines flight 11. This is the passport of Satam al Suqami. A passerby picked it up and gave it to a NYPD detective shortly before the World Trade Center towers collapsed. A fourth passport was recovered from luggage that did not make it from a Portland flight to Boston on to the connecting flight which was American Airlines flight 11. This is the passport of Abdul Aziz al Omari."

"The phrase 'conspiracy theory' functions as a sort of giant cudgel"

Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory: David Ray Griffin: 9781566568210: Amazon.com: Books:

"In the United States today, the phrase `conspiracy theory' functions as a sort of giant cudgel, used to scare us out of talking openly about a broad (and ever-growing) range of scandals that the powerful cannot afford to let the people comprehend. In this new book, David Ray Griffin takes devastating aim at that repressive tactic, exposing it for what it really is. All those who cherish democracy, and intellectual freedom, owe it to themselves to read this brave analysis---and owe its author their sincerest thanks." --- Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Culture and Communication, New York University

Donna Marsh O'Connor, 9/11 Mothers, Begs Press to Investigate

"If I question anything about the official story, I am called a 'conspiracy theorist.... My kids have been loved by some, and shunned by others because their mother is a conspiracy theorist. I am not a theorist. I was a theorist at Syracuse University for 22 years when I taught writing and rhetoric and American public discourse, and I can't do that anymore.... This government has made me a victim of conspiracy theories because they haven't answered fully or allowed anyone to ask the true questions of September 11 and that's what I'm asking from you today. For exposure. We are not crazy. We have questions. We demand answers. I don't want to be paternalized by my government."

How America the world's most violent country slaughters children at home and abroad

"EACH TIME there is an outbreak of homicidal mania, whether Columbine, Virginia Tech, or Adam Lanza’s slaughter of twenty eight innocents in Connecticut, the media directs us to stories about gun control and the need for better policing of individuals with mental illnesses.
The larger context—that America is a society brimming over with violence—is entirely lost in the discussion."
