The Myth Maker

Substantially re-written.

As everyone knows, Philip Zelikow, the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, is an administration insider whose area of expertise is the creation and maintenance of "public myths" thought to be true, even if not actually true. We all know that he controlled what the Commission did and did not analyze, then limited the scope of the Commission's inquiry so that the overwhelming majority of questions about 9/11 remained unasked (see this article and this article). Zelikow is arguably the single most responsible person in covering up the truth about 9/11.

Well, it turns out that Zelikow also wrote a hit piece against Pearl Harbor truth for the Council on Foreign Relations. I guess with all of the false flags that the U.S. government carries out, there is alot of demand for a myth-maker like Zelikow.

Here's Zelikow's essay in full:

Stinnett revives another old argument: that Roosevelt knew about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and let it happen. (Even Buchanan did not stoop to this old saw.) A persistent digger, Stinnett has uncovered some nuggets of new evidence, but his most sensational items are premised on the false belief that American intelligence had broken the Japanese naval code before the attack. In fact, it was not decrypted until after Pearl Harbor. Aside from questioning the competence and honesty of two officers in U.S. naval intelligence (in a case concerning the Japanese fleet's radio silence and U.S. radio direction-finding), the book offers little new. Stinnett never fashions his nuggets of research into a coherent argument, much less a convincing portrait. It is odd that an otherwise respectable publisher did not insist on such coherence before peddling this book with its sensational press release. If Roosevelt was indeed maneuvering to have a war forced on the United States, his maneuvers were aimed at Germany rather than Japan, which he and Churchill simply hoped to deter. Pearl Harbor demonstrated their misjudgments, not their shrewdness.

Using the tired old gatekeeper cliches of "nothing new, move along", "the authorities deny it" and "they were just incompetent", Zelikow's review is thoroughly dishonest. His argument that Roosevelt was really maneuvering to get us into war against Germany and not Japan is wholly deceitful. If America got into a war against Japan, it would also be at war again Japan's ally: Germany. Germany never threatened to attack the U.S. directly. So when Roosevelt learned of Japan's plans to attack Pearl Harbor ... voila, a perfect excuse to enter the war against Japan and Germany. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

It is interesting to see a slightly younger "myth-maker" polishing his skills prior to landing the big role of whitewasher-in-chief concerning 9/11.

Thanks to Stickdog for the heads up.

The little crook!

This guy is up there with Donald Rumsfeld and Larry Silverstein when it comes to being as suspicious as they come. Also check out the following 9/11 Timeline entry, about the "Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group" that Zelikow was in between 1997 and 1998, along with Jamie Gorelick. This group considered the consequences of "An act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people," and that "would be a watershed event in America’s history." Furthermore, "Like Pearl Harbor, such an event would divide our past and future into a ‘before’ and ‘after.’"

Zelikow Quote

How About this Zelikow Quote:

In 2002 Zelikow made remarks interpeted as alleging that the United States entered the Iraq War to protect Israel, when he said:

“ "Why would Iraq attack America or use nuclear weapons against us? I'll tell you what I think the real threat (is) and actually has been since 1990 -- it's the threat against Israel,”
”And this is the threat that dare not speak its name, because the Europeans don't care deeply about that threat, I will tell you frankly. And the American government doesn't want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.” [

Why don't we call "Mr. Public Myth"..... his proper title:

"The Minister of Propaganda"

Why don't we

Move him to the front of the line at the gallows so Bush can see him swing before he gets his chance
Together in Truth!

Now, now, now....

let's just build a new wing at Leavenworth with 911 cells.

Call it the Bush 911 wing and start filling it soon.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

I'm for excecution, but I'll

I'm for excecution, but I'll split the difference:

They get to live --in prison for life --provided we the taxpayers seize all their assets and use them for first responder/ veteran care, etc. etc.

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

I'm for War Crimes against Humanity, but I'll settle for...

I'm for War Crimes Against Humanity, with all the trappings of a civilised society, but I'll settle for a deep hole in a public market where folks can kick an old cabbage leaf down to feed them off and on. (after all their assets are seized as you propose). It has to be deep enough where they are in the shadows most of the time, rain or shine. Rats would avoid this place.

I finalized the essay.

Here you go.


Is the most comprehensive article I've seen on Philip Zelikow by Bryan Sacks.

Philip Zelikow: The Bush Administration Investigates the Bush Administration

"Deepening the irony further, in the November-December 1998 edition of Foreign Affairs, Zelikow co-authored an article entitled "Catastrophic Terrorism" with former CIA Director John Deutsch and former Assistant Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter. The article speculated that if the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center had succeeded in causing the Twin Towers to collapse, "the resulting horror and chaos would have exceeded our ability to describe it. Such an act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America's fundamental sense of security, as did the Soviet atomic bomb test in 1949. Like Pearl Harbor, the event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects and use of deadly force. More violence could follow, either future terrorist attacks or U.S. counterattacks. Belatedly, Americans would judge their leaders negligent for not addressing terrorism more urgently."

It does not, however, include Stickdog's discovery. Nice find.

Is one of the best videos ever.

Wow. GREAT JOB ladies!!!

Wow. GREAT JOB ladies!!! Now we need multiple people doing the same thing, at EVERY appearance these rogues make.

I'd like to see comments on this video from some of the 9/11 families.

Want to figure out 9/11? Ponder the 9/11 "Mineta Stone"


Where did you find this??? And who was that woman? She must be a lawyer to have gotten into a bar association meeting. Takes lots of courage to do that. And Zelikow doesn't even flinch, sociopath scum that he is.

Why aren't there more lawyers in the truth movement. Isn't it all about JUSTICE???!!!!!!!!


I'd heard about Gypsy and Carol's appearances, but had never seen this before.

That's what I call Courage.

Gypsy and Carol's video...

Has been posted here before. You'd be amazed at some of the activism videos you can find on Google.
