While the President and Commander in Chief of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama “celebrates” the first anniversary of the alleged death of bin Laden, the substantive issue as to WHO WAS OSAMA BIN LADEN remains unheralded. (Remarks by President Obama in Address to the Nation from Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, see video at foot of article)
Through lies and fabrications, president Obama`s carefully scripted speech upholds a world of total fantasy, in which “bad guys” are lurking and “plotting acts of terror” Islamic “jihadists” are said to be threatening Western civilization.
Each and every statement in Obama’s May 1st speech at Bagram Air Force base regarding the role of Al Qaeda is a fabrication:

Drone warfare — assassination by unmanned aircraft — is arguably one of the most hellish spawns of the modern military-industrial era, and its use is becoming routine in the Af-Pak war, yet (what else is new?) there’s no debate about it at the level of national policy, just a shrug and a void.

The antiwar activists issued grand jury subpoenas after last week’s FBI raids in Minneapolis and Chicago could face jail time for their political support for third world movements the US declares to be “terrorist,” an attorney familiar with the defense case told the World Socialist Web Site.

When President Ahmadinejad announced before the United Nations that most people in the world believe that the U.S. government was involved in the planning and execution of the 9/11 attacks, he told the truth. In America, groups have been popping up for years, not “fringe” types, but military and professional organizations, architects, engineers, pilots, intelligence officers.
Do Information Science and Media Professionals Have a Duty to Provide Evidence-Based Information to a Questioning Public?

This essay was originally published by the international journal, Information for Social Change, http://libr.org/isc/toc.html. The article appeared in pdf format in late August at: http://www.libr.org/isc/issues/ISC30/articles/7.pdf It has been republished here with permission from the author.
ABSTRACT: While it is recognized that through the use of meta-analysis and randomized controlled trials the standard of excellence in evidence-based medicine (EBM) stands alone on a pinnacle, there is nonetheless an evidence-based methodology that can be applied across the board in other decision-making areas. Though research into the events of 9/11 has not yet attained the rigor achieved by EBM, it is still possible to rank the research in this field according to evidence-based principles. This article explains the principles, points to sources that exemplify them, and argues the ethical obligation of librarians and journalists to advance those sources.

From around the web, several sources are questioning Lehman Brothers’ rampant thievery and cover-up facilitated by corporate media:
On MSNBC last Friday, Dylan Ratigan reported on Lehman Bros’ $50 billion fraud, for which president Richard Fuld paid himself half a billion dollars a year. (Maybe Fuld should fund universal healthcare.)

Time Magazine’s Joe Klein is having an allergic reaction to free speech and public debate. The title of his latest column says it all: The Left’s Idiocy on Health Reform. It’s an ex cathedra pronouncement from a made man at one of the nation’s oldest media properties.
What’s got Joe so worked up?

Triumph of the Money Party
Do you know what the “public option” does or who it covers? If you’ve had trouble finding out, it’s not your fault. Reading corporate media coverage provides little or no clue. It’s hardly ever defined. There’s a very good reason for the lack of clarity and definition. But first, a brief summary of the public debate that characterizes just about every public debate we have on critical issues.
If you think that the current version of the public option will provide a choice for a government administered health program, you’re right. If you think that this option was designed for the general public, then you’re wrong. It will apply to only some of the uninsured, possibly as few as six million citizens. It’s a kind of public option. Continue reading

9/11 has become an American enigma. For many, 9/11 remains a puzzling, inexplicable phenomenon that defies understanding in its complexities and misinformation. Most people doubt the full truth of the 9/11 Commission’s report, but are unable to accept that people inside the government could be so evil as to allow the deaths of 3000 Americans.

To Drink or Not to Drink
Once upon a time an evil warlock visits a kingdom and poisons the central well with a potion that drives people mad. The next morning all who drink from that well go crazy. The queen, however, knew about this in advance, and didn’t drink from the communal well. The next day, those who drank the poisoned water came to the queen and accused her of being the crazy one. The queen, aware of what had transpired, was faced with a dilemma: drink from the well and lose her sanity like the rest of her subjects, but remain queen; or don’t drink, remain sane, but be swept from power by those who would view her very sanity as madness.
Today in our nation those who refrain from drinking from the well poisoned by the establishment witch are categorized, marginalized, and labeled mad, crazy, extremist, conspiracy theorists, and other adjectives along the same line: Continue reading

An interview with Roberto Hernandez Montoya, president of the Romulo Gallegos Foundation Center for Latin American Studies (CELARG) in Venezuela.
“Media totalitarianism produces capitalist ideology, but also dangerous, even criminal, phenomena. The United States lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Media totalitarianism took up those lies to justify the invasion of the country, becoming in its turn a weapon of mass destruction. That invasion cost over a million Iraqis their lives.”

It is impossible to verify that genetically modified crops perform as advertised. That is because agritech companies have given themselves veto power over the work of independent researchers. Scientists must ask corporations for permission before publishing independent research on genetically modified crops. That restriction must end.

Before I know it I’m sucked into the New York Times story and I haven’t had my Prozac or anything.
Through the miracle of language, here we are, walking with U.S. troops on patrol through the streets of Mosul, and by the time the story’s point has been thoroughly explicated, two kindergarten-age Iraqi boys, bait on the hook of evil, are blown to Kingdom Come by an IED that had been planted in the car in which they sat helplessly.
