9/11 Truth Is No "Parlor Game"

January 24, 2011 by legitgov

9/11 Truth Is No "Parlor Game" 21 Jan 2011 By Jim Fetzer A disturbing article, "The 9/11 'Truth' Parlor Game" (15 January 2011), by Robert Parry, advances the indefensible theory that the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was affected by the shooter's interest in 9/11 truth. While there are good reasons to suspect that the political climate nurtured by the right wing may have influenced him (by targeting a series of representatives using the cross-hairs of a telescopic site, for example), there is no reason to believe than anyone associated with the 9/11 truth movement has targeted any members of Congress--other than attempting to expose them to the evidence that research has unearthed, which has shown that virtually every claim the government has made about 9/11 is provably false.

Domestic use of aerial drones by law enforcement likely to prompt privacy debate 23 Jan 2011 The drone technology that has revolutionized warfare in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is entering U.S. national airspace. By 2013, the FAA expects to have formulated new rules that would allow police across the country to routinely fly lightweight, unarmed drones up to 400 feet above the ground - high enough for them to be largely invisible eyes in the sky. Such technology could allow police to record the activities of the public below with high-resolution, infrared and thermal-imaging cameras.

Holder: 'Nothing's Off the Table' for KSM 20 Jan 2011 Attorney General Eric Holder parried questions about the fate of five men alleged to be central architects of September 11 during a question-and-answer session in Brooklyn this morning. The Obama administration originally meant to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four accomplices in Manhattan, but backed down [as usual] in the face of unified resistance from public officials and business leaders.

Workshop addresses polar bears' plight amid global warming

Workshop addresses polar bears' plight amid global warming 22 Jan 2011 The female polar bear swam 370 nautical miles for nine days through the open water in the Beaufort Sea. After that, she alternately swam and walked on sea ice for another 970 miles. By the time the bear returned to the coast near Kaktovik, she had lost her cub and about 22 percent of her weight. Her travails were recorded by scientists who captured the bear after her August-October 2008 journey and published their findings in a peer-reviewed journal in December. The journey to find food in the Arctic will only get worse for Alaska's polar bears if global temperatures continue rising - as the world's leading climate scientists predict they will.

Former Indicted Spy With Agenda Operates Private C.I.A. --'Eclipse Group' was funded by US military until May, then funded by private donors to pay agents to continue spying 23 Jan 2011 Duane R. Clarridge parted company with the Central Intelligence Agency more than two decades ago, but from poolside at his home near San Diego, he still runs a network of spies. Over the past two years, he has fielded operatives in the mountains of Pakistan and the desert badlands of Afghanistan. Mr. Clarridge was indicted on charges of lying to Congress in the Iran-contra scandal and later pardoned. His dispatches have been sent to military officials who, until last spring at least, found some credible enough to be used in planning strikes against militants in Afghanistan. They are also fed to conservative commentators.

'This is about Obama getting Olbermann fired.'

January 22, 2011 by legitgov

Did Lyin Joe Lieberman Use His White House Connections to Get Keith Olbermann Fired? By Scott Creighton 21 Jan 2011 The liberal blog-o-sphere is a buzz this morning and it appears the spin is to blame it all on the Comcast merger. No one is talking about what Keith O said about Lyin Joe less than 24 hours before he got sacked. "Don’t let the delusional liar door hit you in the delusional liar butt on the way out." "Goodbye, Joe Lieberman, and good riddance." He accused Lieberman of "lying even on the way out the door." ...If anyone tries to tell you this was done by Comcast, don't buy it... This is all about Lyin Joe Lieberman throwing a hissy-fit and GE's CEO taking a new job at the White House. This came on so suddenly, a promo for Olbermann’s show ran at the halfway point of Rachel Maddow’s show which comes on after Keith's. Had this been Comcast, they would have seen it coming. No, this is about Lyin Joe calling a marker with the Obama White House, so really, this is about Obama getting Olbermann fired.
