    Thank you for that load of self justified propaganda. They could afford all this crap, the PR the propaganda, the wars and killing and torturing and kidnapping and disappearing all those people around the world, on a hunch, or something someone said, or on fabricated intelligence provided by someone being tortured to give what his tormentors wanted to hear; they could afford all those billions, trillions to make an endless war against nebulous enemies that just kept on growing with every American atrocity and war crime, all to the profit of a few chosen corporations ; they could afford all that but they could not afford a robust, meaningful, forensically accurate investigation into the who, the how, and the why of the 9-11 crimes.

    Amount of money allocated for Clinton-Lewinsky investigation: $40 million
    Amount of money allocated for the 9/11 Commission: $14 million

    Its even cheap for a whitewash. More to the point though, is that they could not afford the truth to be known. The cost to the American people of not having the truth, is to live with the lies built on the lies of the lies, and all the pyramid of clowns which support them, just to stay in a job.

    Until the USA faces this mountain of lies that surround their secret government they will sink ever deeper into the abyss of the police state that has followed from 9-11 and the Patriot Act, which was prepared in full in advance of that event which was needed for the legislation to be passed without ne’er a reading by most of the members of both houses.

    What Bush really meant when he said “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists” was in effect if you doubt the lies we give you from now on, we will be treating you just as we treat anyone else who we may decide to call a terrorist. The Secret America is the new Fascist Empire, which makes lists, and defines profiles, and is run by the government you cannot see, that secret one behind the curtain, where a constitution is just a piece of paper from history.

    The war on terror, Bin Laden and the 19 hijackers, Al Qaeda here and Al Qaeda there, have just been a big spectacular show, a supper production staged across the world at vast expense to taxpayers (never mind the lives wasted), to keep the sheeple scared and in their places, and all that money keeps rolling into the only growth industry left in the world, slave management, global human resource exploitation, disaster capitalism, the security industry, they call it defence but its in fact the industry of war, and all designed to the building of the new global virtual human stockade. And when it is finished, only then will people who thought they were trading a little freedom for security realise what price they sold their freedom for, and how frogs are boiled.

  2. Gee wizz, I guess I hit the jackpot this evening folks. I don’t know what those 5 pictures of some person standing in front of the Capital with an M-16 slung over his neck is supposed to represent, but there sure isn’t any dialog, video, explanation, in fact, there ain’t shit there. Excuse my language, but I believe that it’s time for a Military Coup to take place in this country, lock up every politician, bar none, sweep every lobbyist, Wall Street T.B.T.F. types, both past & present, clean house, then bring the troops home. This country doesn’t need to be in every country with military personnel, draining the treasure in ever increasing amounts, just to satisfy the selected few. This country should be top priority, not some adventure of a bunch of idiots who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground. Total B.S. that every Veteran who has ever served in the military should have to carry the burden of these lies, regardless of whether or not they perps were the P.O.T.U.S., the neocons, the various chickenhearted I have other things to do beside serve my country in combat.

    The Military can do it cleanly, without destroying the infrastructure, because there isn’t enough treasure left to rebuild what would be demolished. To continue along the present course, is to failure. The only question left, does the military have the balls to pull this one off, or will they continue to kow-tow to the so called elite that have made a shambles of what once was a proud prosperous country?

  3. You know, I watched this when it was broadcast on PBS this past week, and I can’t remember anything about it. It’s either me just having a senior moment, or there was jack-shit worth remembering.
