How did the mainstream press get it so wrong?
By Bill Moyers
Four years ago on May 1, President Bush landed on the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln wearing a flight suit and delivered a speech in front of a giant "Mission Accomplished" banner. He was hailed by media stars as a "breathtaking" example of presidential leadership in toppling Saddam Hussein. Despite profound questions over the failure to locate weapons of mass destruction and the increasing violence in Baghdad, many in the press confirmed the White House's claim that the war was won. MSNBC's Chris Matthews declared, "We're all neo-cons now;" NPR's Bob Edwards said, "The war in Iraq is essentially over;" and Fortune magazine's Jeff Birnbaum said, "It is amazing how thorough the victory in Iraq really was in the broadest context."
How did the mainstream press get it so wrong? How did the evidence disputing the existence of weapons of mass destruction and the link between Saddam Hussein to 9-11 continue to go largely unreported? "What the conservative media did was easy to fathom; they had been cheerleaders for the White House from the beginning and were simply continuing to rally the public behind the President — no questions asked. How mainstream journalists suspended skepticism and scrutiny remains an issue of significance that the media has not satisfactorily explored," says Moyers. "How the administration marketed the war to the American people has been well covered, but critical questions remain: How and why did the press buy it, and what does it say about the role of journalists in helping the public sort out fact from propaganda?"
On Wednesday, April 25 at 9 p.m. on PBS, a new PBS series BILL MOYERS JOURNAL premieres at a special time with "Buying the War," a 90-minute documentary that explores the role of the press in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq. Two days later on April 27, BILL MOYERS JOURNAL airs in its regular timeslot on Fridays at 9 p.m. with interviews and news analysis on a wide range of subjects, including politics, arts and culture, the media, the economy, and issues facing democracy. "Buying the War" includes interviews with Dan Rather, formerly of CBS; Tim Russert of MEET THE PRESS; Bob Simon of 60 MINUTES; Walter Isaacson, former president of CNN; and John Walcott, Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel of Knight Ridder newspapers, which was acquired by The McClatchy Company in 2006.

By Naomi Wolf, Chelsea Green Publishing
April 28, 2007
Alternet Editor's note: This is adapted from Wolf's forthcoming book "The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot."
Last autumn, there was a military coup in Thailand. The leaders of the coup took a number of steps, rather systematically, as if they had a shopping list. In a sense, they did. Within a matter of days, democracy had been closed down -- the coup leaders declared martial law, sent armed soldiers into residential areas, took over radio and TV stations, issued restrictions on the press, tightened some limits on travel and took certain activists into custody.
They were not figuring these things out as they went along. If you look at history, you can see that there is essentially a blueprint for turning an open society into a dictatorship. That blueprint has been used again and again in more and less bloody, more and less terrifying ways. But it is always effective. It is very difficult and arduous to create and sustain a democracy, but history shows that closing one down is much simpler. You simply have to be willing to take the 10 steps.
As difficult as this is to contemplate, it is clear, if you are willing to look, that each of these 10 steps has already been initiated in the United States by the Bush administration.
Because Americans like me were born in freedom, we have a hard time even considering that it is possible for us to become as unfree, domestically, as many other nations. Because we no longer learn much about our rights or our system of government -- the task of being aware of the Constitution has been outsourced from citizens to professionals such as lawyers and professors -- we scarcely recognise the checks and balances that the founders put in place, even as they are being systematically dismantled. Because we don't learn much about European history, the setting up of a department of "homeland" security -- remember who else was keen on the word "homeland"? -- didn't raise the alarm bells it might have.
It is my argument that, beneath our very noses, George Bush and his administration are using time-tested tactics to close down an open society. It is time for us to be willing to think the unthinkable -- as the author and political journalist Joe Conason has put it -- that it can happen here. And that we are further along than we realize.

Monday May 01, 2007
A former CIA analyst claims that falsified documents which were meant to show that Iraq's Saddam Hussein regime had been trying to procure yellowcake uranium from Niger can be traced back to Vice President Dick Cheney.
Appearing on MSNBC's Tucker Carlson Show, Ray McGovern who served in the CIA for twenty-seven years, said, "the [forged] memo leads right back to the doorstep of the Vice President of the United States."http://prisonplanet.com/articles/may2007/010507analyst.htm

With Truth Comes Awakening
By Manuel Valenzuela
The suppression of truth has long been among the highest priorities for the upper echelons of power and authority. For a minority elite that clings to power by the manipulation of the masses using an omnipresent cocktail of lies, deception, mass-produced ignorance and ingrained propaganda, the destruction of truth is an essential method of control. It is a formula that has worked to unmitigated success for the elite throughout history, whether the shadows of power stretch from ancient pyramids, marble temples, castles, mansions or halls of governance. Those holding the levers of power and control understand, better than most, that the dissemination of truths to a blind majority could spell the end of their reign, for truth brings sight to the blind.
These entities understand that truth is like a massive breath of fresh mountain air, pure and energizing, refreshing and invigorating, and that once inhaled by the masses, the balance of control can easily be disturbed and seriously threatened. Revolution of the many against the few oftentimes results, mostly to the enormous detriment of the powerful. They know that widespread circulation of the truths of what they have done in the past and are at present doing to the majority could light a flame onto a massive cauldron overflowing with dry kindling, sparking an enormous inferno of anger. Truth, in short, could lead to an awakening of hundreds of millions of human beings who for too long have had their minds held captive by the instruments of control used by those in power.
It is for this reason that truth is hidden, fought, ridiculed, destroyed and suppressed, why it is emaciated and torn to bits, why its advocates and defenders are smeared, ostracized and silenced, their reputations purposefully shattered, their lives picked apart and criticized. Truth must never be allowed to gain momentum or be exposed, which is why truth seekers must be made examples. Those in power will fight tooth and nail to destroy the messenger of truth, yet will never answer the questions or investigate the proposition presented by the message itself. Better that truth remain a microcosm of darkness in the American subconscious rather that it be allowed to sprout from the fertile soils of free-thinking minds.

Controversial ground zero documentary grounded in science
By Sean Connor
Published by The Equinox
A publication of Keene State College -
Posted: 4/19/07 ~ Movie Review
Most people would like to think the horrific events of Sept. 11, believed to be the largest terrorist attack in history, would not come from the hands of their own government, but they should think again.
Michael Berger, director of "Improbable Collapse, The Demolition of our Republic," has created a polished documentary analyzing the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers with unrelenting arguments negating the government's official reports on the Sept. 11 events.
Unlike other similar documentaries, "Improbable Collapse" comes at the issue with pure science and hard facts. Much of the main points behind Berger's arguments are backed by sufficient scientific evidence.
The documentary's legitimacy is mostly due to the research by Steven E. Jones, professor of physics at Brigham Young University.
"There are some very important questions here that are unanswered," said Jones about the attack.
Jones emphasized the fact that there has never been an instance of any building collapsing due to fire before the WTC buildings in 2001.
"The structure was always left behind, even after sufficient damage had occurred," said Jones.
Jones focused on the steel structure of the WTC buildings and came to the conclusion that it was scientifically impossible for the columns to have melted, creating a pancake affect (which the U.S. government said was the case) that eventually ended with the buildings collapsing directly on their footprint and barely damaging anything around them.
This is when the documentary starts pointing fingers at top officials in the White House.
The collapse of the buildings looked suspiciously similar to how controlled demolitions would be performed and this was something in which Berger and Jones were very interested.
When performing a controlled demolition a building must be loaded with explosives in key parts of the frame.
The explosives must then be ignited, causing the building to collapse, significantly limiting the damage to surrounding structures with its direct downward free-fall.
According to the WTC Construction Manager, the buildings were over-designed to withstand almost anything, including hurricanes, high winds, bombings and an airplane hitting them.
New York City firefighters were also quoted stating their thoughts about the attacks and who was behind them.
"I know Sept. 11 was an inside job," said one New York City firefighter in the documentary.
Others described hearing up to 10 explosions coming from inside the building, leaving even some doubters of a conspiracy quite skeptical.
There were three investigative reports done by the U.S. government including the 9/11 Commission report, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report and the FEMA BPAT report.
All three of the reports concluded that, with the information and time available, the events leading to the collapse of the WTC buildings could not be fully and accurately determined.
The documentary then asked why the government would throw volunteer engineers with no money and no authority into an investigation of such a cataclysmic event that occurred on their own country's soil.
According to Berger, this lack of interest was "evidence of the absence and failure of democracy in this country and its government."
The documentary focused a lot on WTC building seven because of its lack of explanation from the government and the media's knack for blatantly ignoring it as much as possible.
This is just one reason why Berger and others strongly believe the government is hiding something from its people.
"Why would media networks and our own government act guilty? It's very strange," said Berger.
Berger also spoke about the increase in people standing up and taking action against the alleged lies and manipulation from their government.
"If we did organize, they (the U.S. government) would probably be the scared ones," said Berger.
Berger believes that with the ability to hold a citizen's grand jury and get a federal prosecutor to go to trial with the evidence, "it would allow us to take back our government."
"Improbable Collapse" is a deeply thought out documentary attempting to lift the sheet from the eyes of every American and uncover the truth about one of the most devastating events in history.
Its honest effort deserves to be heard and fairly questioned by everyone.

The DVD of the film, "Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of our Republic"
, includes a 20 minute video about the New York City Fire Department radio scandal that receives very little attention. Several cities still use these radios -- and they still do not work! They continue to jeopardize the lives of the first responders. Based on the book Radio Silence F.D.N.Y.: The Betrayal of New York's Bravest

Debunkers Use Ludicrous Freeway Comparison To Attack 9/11 Truth
Desperation evident as thin rebars impacted by gasoline firestorm compared to twin tower's thick steel beams and concrete core
Paul Joseph Watson
Tuesday, May 1, 2007
Debunkers have again betrayed their desperation by citing the partial collapse of a freeway bridge in San Francisco to claim that the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center towers and Building 7 has been discredited. In reality, the comparison is ludicrous and wildly inaccurate.
