Video: FAIR TV: PBS and Koch, Guatemala and the U.S. Role and Rumsfeld Meets the Press

25 May 2013 — FAIR Blog

This week: PBS won’t be showing us the documentary Citizen Koch–for some very dubious reasons. Also: The New York Times points out that the U.S. role in supporting genocide in Guatemala was hardly discussed at the trial; the same goes for U.S. media coverage of that trial. And Donald Rumsfeld goes on Meet the Press to talk about accountability. No, it’s not what you think.

100’s of Terrorists Land on Beaches, Western Media Mute

By Tony Cartalucci

Secret Memo by Donald Rumsfeld Proves Iraq War Started On False Pretenses

20 February 2013 — Washington’s Blog

Newly-Released

 Everyone Knew Iraq Had No WMD … and Was Not Behind Anthrax Attacks or 9/11

Everyone knew that Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction.

Indeed, Secretary of State Colin Powell’s chief of staff – Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – just said that Powell knew that there were no WMDs: I wonder what will happen when we put 500,000 troops into Iraq and comb the country from one end to the other and find nothing

28 January, 2013 — Global Research

The Unanswered Questions of 9/11 By James Corbett

11 September 2012 — Global Research – James Corbett – corbettreport.com

wtc

In his latest weekly address to the nation, President Obama asserts that America’s questions about 9/11 have been answered. If only it were so.

The questions of 9/11 have only continued to pile up higher since that fateful day, and despite official platitudes we are no closer to having those questions answered today then we were when they first arose. In fact, for some of the most important 9/11 questions, the government’s own documents and records that could conceivably answered them have been destroyed, meaning we may never have answers.

Family Values and One Last Act of Magic By Dan Hind

7 May, 2011 — The Return of the Public

So, Osama bin Laden is dead.

It is a cliche to say that the popular uprisings against dictatorship in Egypt, Syria, Bahrain and elsewhere had marginalised him. The fusion of political Islam and spectacular terrorism for which he was the figurehead no longer holds out the prospect of radical transformation. Mohamed Bouazizi’s decision to set himself on fire in December of 2010 has done far more to change the culture and politics of the Middle East than any number of suicide bombers.
