Moment of Silence

by Emmanuel Ortiz, 11th September 2002.
Before I start this poem, I’d like to ask you to join me
In a moment of silence
In honor of those who died in the World Trade Center and the
Pentagon last September 11th.
I would also like to ask you
To offer up a moment of silence
For all of those who have been harassed, imprisoned,
disappeared, tortured, raped, or killed in …

A good day for war: Al Jazeera is picked up in NY

By the Editor.
Today Al Jazeera is congratulating itself on being given a cable TV slot across the New York City region. This has caused a slew of naive liberals all over the world to wet their collective pants with excitement and jump for joy as if this is somehow ‘good news’.
The truth of the matter is, this is very bad news. Al Jazeera, with its faux sheen of ‘Arab authenticity’ has truly led the charge in spreading propaganda and disinformation especially with regard to Libya and Syria. The lies it …

9/11 and the Orwellian Redefinition of “Conspiracy Theory”

Let’s take a minute to re-acquaint ourselves with the 9/11 official explanation, which is not regarded as a conspiracy theory despite the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy.
by Paul Craig Roberts.
While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.
A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories …

Sowing the Seeds of Violence and Instability

By Ghali Hassan. Tuesday, Jun 7, 2011.
“In terms of a violent society and armed citizens, the U.S. is in a league of its own and sadly the state of disregard for the law and justice filters all the way down from the White House.
– Yvonne Ridley, British journalist
In June 2006, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice described the criminal destruction of Lebanon by the Israeli fascist forces as the “birth pang” of a “New Middle East” characterised by violence and instability. The aim is to break-up the Arab states …

UN 2011 mid-year report on Afghanistan reveals alarming new trend in war propaganda

By the Editor.
As the first half of 2011 sees record civilian deaths in occupied Afghanistan, the UN is today continuing its disgusting attempts to whitewash the US/NATO role.  With stunning audacity, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan’s 11 June press release attempted to absolve the US-NATO occupiers of any role in the record level of civilian deaths in the month of May 2011.
One month on, today’s 2011 Mid-year Report continues the same contemptuous apologist tactics, but it also reveals an alarming new trend in the UN’s war propaganda.  By …

Some were on their way to work in lower Manhattan. Others were already sitting at their desks, checking e-mail, sipping coffee or reading their morning papers. Still others were working in kitchens and garages when they heard and felt the sickening crash. Bathed in soot and shaken to their souls, they are the survivors of what New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called “one of the most heinous acts in world history.” The life and death drama that followed the …

By Curtis L. Taylor and Sean Gardiner, September 12, 2001 (link now dead). Click here for a cached version.
The World Trade Center was destroyed just days after a heightened security alert was lifted at the landmark 110-story towers, security personnel said yesterday.
Daria Coard, 37, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on Thursday, bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed.
“Today was the first day there was not …
