9.11 investigation | media criticism

Capitalism, the State, and the left re: the sacred myth of 911

One of NATO/CIA's methods of preventing the left from legally achieving state power all over Europe is the use of false flag terrorist attacks. Chomksy is known to hand wave away the concept of false flag attacks. While agitkid is grateful for Chomsky's analysis in general, Chomsky is strikingly inconsistent on this subject. It is crucial for the left to understand 911 in this context.
Summary: Dr. Anthony J. Hall is professor of globalization studies at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. He is the author of The American Empire and the Fourth World, which introduces the series The Bowl with One Spoon.

Earth into Property: Colonization, Decolonization and Capitalism ( http://amzn.to/heV5AZ) is the second volume of the Bowl project, which was published this last fall by McGill-Queen's University Press. Earth into Property explores the relationship between the dispossession of Indigenous peoples and the making of global capitalism.

Credits: Notes: With the dismantling of the formal empires of Europe after the Second World War, the US corporate state moved to fill the vacuum of power. Hall shows that the US government, in seeking to replicate its role in the Cold war by mounting the Global War on Terror, is extending trajectories of conquest that began with invasions of Indian nations to further the expansionary course of American Empire.

His recent article is entitled, Waging The Battle for Reality, A Review Essay on a Propagandist's Journey in Search of the 'Conspiracist Underground' ( http://bit.ly/kKpHOU), which discusses what professor Hall calls the "sacred myth of 911" and it's relationship to a McCarthyite type campaign being waged against citizens that reject the officially sanctioned conspiracy theory of 911.

Daniel Ganser's book, NATOs Secret Armies: Operation GLADIO and Terrorism in Western Europe ( http://amzn.to/lU7Ep2), was mentioned in this interview. It is a highly recommened book by this Swiss scholar, ironically which has a blurb on the back by Noam Chomsky.

This book documents, through the use of court material, direct documentary evidence, and testimonials, NATO/CIA's use of false flag terrorist attacks to prevent the left from legally achieving state power all over Europe. Chomksy is known to hand wave away the concept of false flag attacks. While this interviewer is grateful for Chomsky analysis in general, he is strikingly inconsistent on this subject. It is crucial for the left to understand 911 in this context.
