"The best thing that you can do with anything that is crooked is to lift it up where people can see that it is crooked, and then it will either straighten itself out or disappear. Nothing checks all the bad practices of politics like public exposure."
Woodrow Wison

Ooops, Woodrow Wilson.

Ooops, Woodrow Wilson.

"We will export death and violence to the four corners of the earth in defense of our great nation."

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." --Thomas Jefferson

Who coined the phrase, "The

Who coined the phrase, "The first casualty of War is Truth" ?

In war, truth is the first casualty. Aeschylus Greek tragic dramatist (525 BC - 456 BC).

Samuel Johnson seems to have had the first word: 'Among the calamities of war may be jointly numbered the diminution of the love of truth, by the falsehoods which interest dictates and credulity encourages.' (from The Idler, 1758)

* The original quote is "The first casualty when war comes is truth". Hiram W Johnson, staunchly isolationist senator for California, to the US Senate in 1917 (the year of his election to the Senate, where he remained until his death in 1945).

* ..."The first casualty when war comes is truth," was coined by Hiram Johnson a Republican politician from California who served in the United States Senate for nearly 30 years, beginning in the midst of World War I and concluding with his death in 1945--as it happens, on the same day the U.S. dropped its first atomic bomb on Hiroshima...

The war is on, and as the old adage goes: “The first casualty, when war comes, is the truth.” Is it that 9/11 was the first great untruth to begin this war on terror?

* In 1918 US Senator Hiram Warren Johnson is purported to have said: The first casualty when war comes is truth. In 1928 Arthur Ponsonby's wrote: 'When war is declared, truth is the first casualty'. (Falsehood in Wartime) Samuel Johnson seems to have had the first word: 'Among the calamities of war may be jointly numbered the diminution of the love of truth, by the falsehoods which interest dictates and credulity encourages.' (from The Idler, 1758)

The oldest cliché is that truth is the first casualty of war. I disagree. Journalism is the first casualty. Not only that: it has become a weapon of war
New Statesman - The real first casualty of war

Governments lie so you’ll support war.” “Truth is the first casualty of war.”

DHS - good one, although I'm not going to include it because I don't want to alienate atheists (its hard work working with religious, spiritual and atheist folks at the same time -- but well worth the effort, since we need a 9/11 big tent in terms of belief systems.

GW, please see the comments

GW, please see the comments page to your blog. The JFK quote delivered at Columbia University 10 days before his assassination appears to be a hoax, as he never delivered a speech at Columbia. (He may have said it in some other context, but it's not documented.)

My favourite quote: I causes

My favourite quote:

I causes bad luck to be supersticious.

but seriously, GW, the Goebbels-Goering-Hitler quotes are the best fitting to your current Government...


In considering the First Principles of Government, Hume found
'nothing more surprising' than: '...to see the easiness with
which the many are governed by the few; and to observe the
implicit submission with which men resign their own sentiments
and passions to those of their rulers. When we enquire by what
means this wonder is brought about, we shall find, that as
Force is always on the side of the governed, the governors
have nothing to support them but opinion. `Tis therefore, on
opinion only that government is founded; and this maxim
extends to the most despotic and most military governments, as
well as to the most free and most popular.'
Hume was an astute observer, and his paradox of government is
much to the point. His insight explains why elites are so
dedicated to indoctrination and thought control, a major and
largely neglected theme of modern history.


Noam Chomsky, Deterring Democracy
http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/dd/dd-c12-s01.html

==============

My personal feeling is that citizens of the democratic
societies should undertake a course of intellectual
self-defense to protect themselves from manipulation and
control, and to lay the basis for more meaningful democracy.

============

For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more
urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and
practices of indoctrination

Noam Chomsky, Preface, "Necessary Illusions" 1989
http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/ni/ni-preface.html

=================

It is only in folk tales, children's stories,
and the journals of intellectual opinion
that power is used wisely and well to destroy evil.
The real world teaches very different lessons,
and it takes wilful and dedicated ignorance
to fail to perceive them.

Noam Chomsky
http://www.zmag.org/chomskyafter911.htm

=====================

The mass media are not a solid monolith on all issues. Where
the powerful are in disagreement, there will be a certain
diversity of tactical judgments on how to attain generally
shared aims, reflected in media debate. But views that
challenge fundamental premises or suggest that the observed
modes of exercise of state power are based on systemic
factors will be excluded from the mass media even when elite
controversy over tactics rages fiercely.

Noam Chomsky

Yeah, Chomsky writes all

Yeah, Chomsky writes all that eloquence for himself & the other itelligentsia, yet he doesn't realize that 9/11 was an inside job. Chomsky is a left gatekeeper and an asshole.

> Chomsky is a left

> Chomsky is a left gatekeeper

he takes his time.

> and an asshole.

He *has* an arsehole. So do you.

That is the nature of being well educated,
it is to accept the framework of power and not to question it.
..
Well educated people understand that that is the position
that you MUST assume.

So Chomsky is "going along"

So Chomsky is "going along" to "get along"? I don't buy it.

Chomsky knows all about

Chomsky knows all about 9/11, he has a career to protect. he gets paid good money to speak at colleges and stuff and write for various outlets. hes not going to mess around with his career by speaking honestly about 9/11. at least not yet.(he should be ashamed of himself) same goes for Greg Palast. another great journalist that is held back by his lack of understanding of the lies of 9/11.
