Guardian Unlimited Flexes its Freedom of Press

seeing as how it took the US media 7 days to cover this topic, it is quite an eye opener to see that The Guardian still has some gonads when it comes to covering topics never discussed here in America..

here are 2 great links from them today..

The film US TV networks dare not show
this article focuses on the BBC series called 'The Power of Nightmares' which covers 9/11 and information about the idea of global terrorist rings.. apparently it has been re-edited to be one full length film which will soon be shown at the Cannes Film Festival.. it is a great watch and is available for download here:

The war on paperclips

Now if 9/11/2001 is so important, why is it so hard to find out what happened?
The FBI, as we know, blocked all manner of investigations into the plot in the run up to its execution, whether these involved highly specific warnings from its own agents or from government sources in Afghanistan, Argentina, Britain, the Cayman Islands, Egypt, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Morocco and Russia.
And these worries are maybe less important than the ones about clear links between the Pakistani ISI, the CIA and the men named as the 9/11 hijackers. Or the mysterious inability of anyone to capture Osama bin Laden, who fled from Tora Bora, possibly being evacuated by helicopter, and then escaped to Pakistan unhindered.

be sure to check out these 2 great articles.. and let The Guardian know you appreciate real journalism.. unlike CNN who lists American Idol and the Michael Jackson trial as more important than the Iraq memo I linked above..
