20-10-2007 10:36

In his lectures, Elias will outline the moral and legal foundations for the right to the truth, the obligations of states to thoroughly investigate mass murder, and will illustrate the extent to which US authorities have violated their international obligations to establish the truth about what happened on 11 September 2001.

They've Framed this non-existent 'crisis' in the Neo-Fascists' own rhetoric, again repeating long-refuted LIES with no counter-point or factual examination or rebuttal.
