9.11 investigation

The 9/11 Commission: A Victim of Cheney’s Torture Program

What good are the Commission's findings if they come from testimony extracted by torture?
In the run up to the Iraq war - and for several years thereafter - the program of torture carried out by the Bush administration was specifically specifically aimed at establishing a false justification for war. Dick Cheney is the guy who pushed for torture, pressured the Justice Department lawyers to write memos saying torture was legal, and made the pitch to Congress justifying torture. (The former director of the CIA said Cheney oversaw American torture policies).

The type of torture used by the U.S. on the Guantanamo suspects is of a special type. Senator Levin revealed that the the U.S. used Communist torture techniques specifically aimed at creating false confessions.

According to NBC News:

Much of the 9/11 Commission Report was based upon the testimony of people who were tortured

At least four of the people whose interrogation figured in the 9/11 Commission Report have claimed that they told interrogators information as a way to stop being "tortured."

One of the Commission's main sources of information was tortured until he agreed to sign a confession that he was not even allowed to read

The 9/11 Commission itself doubted the accuracy of the torture confessions, and yet kept their doubts to themselves

In fact, the 9/11 Commission Report was largely based on third-hand accounts of what tortured detainees said, with two of the three parties in the communication being government employees.

washington's blog is just part of the conspiracy propaganda machine

FedUp and ....... are here to defend the US Government against valid criticism. 28.Mar.2013 11:19

Antifas are Fascists

"FedUp" is here to defend the US Government against valid criticism.

"......." is here to present Lyndon Larouche as a straw-man to blame for all criticism of the US government. The truth is, Lyndon Larouche is not a leader of the 9/11 Truth movement, and most 9/11 Truthers no nothing, or next to nothing, about Lyndon Larouche, whose influence in the 9/11 Truth movement is practically nil.

The faux-Anarchist Antifas, Anti-Racist Action, and Black Block gang defend and support the US Government's Official Lie about 9/11, which provided the pretext for the bogus War on Terrorism, which is actually a US/NATO war of aggression for control of the resource-rich Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.

The faux-Anarchist Antifas, Anti-Racist Action, and Black Block gang are a Controlled Opposition group that defends and supports the capitalist elitist Imperialist status quo, while pretending to oppose the capitalist elitist Imperialist status quo.

That was the point I think 30.Jul.2013 21:49

duh

"The truth is, Lyndon Larouche is not a leader of the 9/11 Truth movement, and most 9/11 Truthers no nothing, or next to nothing, about Lyndon Larouche,"

That's the point. A bunch of liberals were sucked into a con not knowing the source of all this shit is the Larouche cult. It some cases this was purposely hidden from new recruits. It wasn't until almost 10 years after the "truth movement" started that the Larouche connection became widely known among the left. By then most liberals bailed from the scam.


"whose influence in the 9/11 Truth movement is practically nil. "

Not true. Larouche's 9/11 conspiracy theories were the first ones, and he was active in "truth movement" stuff until some greens started to call him out. Then his front man Webster Tarpley took over. Read more at
 http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/rpt.richard.falk.pdf

The author of the pdf is confused about some details. (labeling the players "left-wing". They all used rhetoric from the left, and Larouche used to identify on the left, but now they are solidly far right-wing.) And they've never gotten over the fact the contras were a fake front group. But their basic info about the "truth movement" is correct:

"But Tarpley is only one example of the movement of former Lyndon
LaRouche operatives into the political left. Another veteran LaRouche operative,
Robert Dreyfuss, who used to write about "Zionist" plots for the New Federalist, a
LaRouche publication, is now a contributor to The American Prospect, The
Nation, the New Republic, Rolling Stone and Mother Jones. His new book on the
Middle East carries an endorsement from Seymour Hersh 20 and he recently
appeared at a New America Foundation event on the "phony clash of
civilizations" between Islam and the West."

The author is blinded by his own conservative bias, but he has shown how the cult infiltrated left publications by presenting their "theories" as left leaning. It helped this was during the Bush years and to most liberals any degree of wrong doing seemed possible.

To the rest of "Antifas are Fascists" comment, where it seems he/she has a problem with anti fascists. This could be the source of your own blind spot. Larouche/Tarpley etc are all fascists. It must be painful for you to see your heroes are really villains.
