911 coverup

911 Commission Coverup
The Media Repeats A Story Full Of Lies
By William Thomas
6-21-4


After pledging to ask the hard questions concerning the failure of US air defenses on Sept. 11, the commission charged with belatedly investigating those events ignored inconsistent, sometimes nonsensical testimony. The 10- member panel also failed to ask about diverting exercises carried out that morning, why FL 93 came down in two places, or why the interceptors launched by the Air Force flew at a fraction of their top speeds. No one, it seems, wants to go near proof of treason rivaling America,s first Pearl Harbor. As a 911 investigator who authored Stand Down and All Fall Down, I have appended my commentary to the following "news stories. -WT

Commentary :: Civil & Human Rights : Globalization & Capitalism : Peace & War

Is the UN ready to get serious about anti-semiticism?

This editorial from the Wall Street Journal by Ann Bayefsky addresses the uncomfortable role the UN has played regarding Israel and the Jews. In its 60 years of existance, the United Nations has never held a conference on anti-semiticism until now. Readers who have noted the umpty-ump UN resolutions condemning Israel that the UN have spawned might come to believe that Israel is one fo the main violators of human rights in the world today. This would, of course, ignore much more serious human rights concerns happening elsewhere in the world with abuses and genocide occurring right now in the Sudan by an Arab/Muslim military dictatorship being number one. Has the UN been treating Israel fairly? Read Ms. Bayefsky's speech to the UN called: ON THE RECORD: One small step
Is the U.N. finally ready to get serious about anti-semiticism?
