A Few Questions for Gregory Palast 18.Jun.2002 04:42

not a liberal

Ask Palast whether he believes the US Government either had foreknowledge of or even directed the 9-11 attacks.

When you get your answer, you will find out what he really stands for.

I would wager that he will fall closer to the David Corn/Norman Solomon line about all the assertions of US foreknowledge/involvement being nothing more than "conspiracy theory."

Either that or Palast will try to limit the issue simply to the Bush Regime--and carefully ignore the role of the Democratic Party and the American system in general in supporting and/or covering for the Republican regime.

Ultimately, Palast is a liberal. He ultimately believes in all the lies about American "demcoracy and freedom." Like most liberals, his agenda is to reform the system in order to return it back to its "original" democratic nature, which has supposedly been corrupted by those corporations or the rich or whomever.

This is also essentially the Indymedia propaganda line. And like Indymedia, what Palast doesn't want to face is the fact that America has never had anything to do with Democracy--and never will. In fact, you could say that American democracy is one of the greatest frauds ever conceived.

The fact the Bush stole the election is nothing new. John Kennedy stole the election in 1960, with the help of Richard Daley and his Chicago Machine. Ask Palast about Kennedy's stolen election, and see if he doesn't dance around the issue or try to sweep it under the rig because "it happened a long time ago."
