Mehdi Kazemi case: British war press indulges again in 'humanitarian' propaganda

16-03-2008 15:10

"It is not exactly amazing, but certainly worthy of attention, that when struggles by women, and gays, and black people for social justice are actually successful, the ruling class finds a way to appropriate those successes in its discursive strategies - so suddenly, an attack on Sudan would be anti-racist, a defense of black 'Africans' against 'Arabs' (who also happen to be black), while an attack on Iran would be about liberating gay people and women etc." (Lenin's Tomb)

Griffin Takes Powerful New Approach to 9/11 Contradictions

16-03-2008 13:21

9/11 CONTRADICTIONS by David Ray Griffin is the fifth of his books to examine the official account of the events of September 11, 2001. This brilliant and highly readable book takes a new yet simple approach to the truth about 9/11. It focuses entirely on contradictory statements made by members of the Bush administration, government departments and agencies, and official bodies such as the 9/11 Commission. All the statements that Griffin examines are official claims in direct conflict with other official claims. How could this be? Why would the government keep changing "the official story"? The public, of course, is expected to take all the statements as incontrovertibly true, yet they directly conflict with one another.
