Ashcroft blasts 9-11 Commission (a commissioner blasts back)

mmmm.....

Juicy tidbits here, as well as lots of finger pointing and distancing, eh?

"Ashcroft also writes that the commission's hearings "were not so much about discovering the truth as they were about assessing blame and grandstanding," adding that they "degenerated into show trials."

"Ashcroft "may very well have been the worst witness we interviewed," he said, adding he was "very unresponsive and unhelpful.""
-- GOP Commissioner Slade Gorton

"The day prior to Ashcroft's testimony, the man who had been acting FBI director throughout the summer of 2001, Thomas Pickard, told the commission that Ashcroft had told him during a briefing covering counter-terrorism that "he did not want to hear about this anymore," and had refused a request for additional funding for FBI counter-terrorist activities."

Yet Ashcroft stopped flying commercial aircraft in the weeks preceeding 9/11 in response to a warning given by DCI George Tenet!

Analysis: Ashcroft blasts 9-11 Commission
By SHAUN WATERMAN
UPI Homeland and National Security Editor

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Former Attorney General John Ashcroft this week became the only Cabinet-level Bush official to attack the Sept. 11 Commission, writing in his memoirs it "seemed obsessed with trying to lay the blame for the terrorist attacks at the feet of the Bush administration, while virtually absolving the previous administration of responsibility."

Why The Media Embraced '911 Truth' By Henry Makow PhD

Makow writes this as an imaginary meeting of the international bankers with Edward Bernays, father of modern psyops.

"At the risk of sounding optimistic, the mainstream coverage of the 9-11 Truth Movement may be a sign that we will not have an Iran attack and another false-flag terrorist event soon. I think the bankers are scared that they are losing control of the American mind. Dubya has been very useful to them but it's time for him to take the rap and go.

The only danger is that he and Cheney will do something desperate to hold on to power. Without the cooperation of the media, they can't succeed. Their term ends in two years anyway. I think they'll take their money and exit gracefully." -- Makow

Why The Media Embraced '911 Truth'

Last week TIME Magazine and "The Washington Post" ran almost balanced and sympathetic stories about "the 9-11 Truth Movement."

These publications define reality for millions of unsuspecting Americans. Why would they legitimize a conspiracy view that implicates their owners, the Illuminati central bankers? Why would they publicize discrepancies that they have been covering up for five years?
