Olbermann refers to Bush 9/11 'lies' as 'Insult the Dead-gate'

As the departing Bush administration frantically attempts to shore up its place in history, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann stands ready to kick the props out from under it again. A renewed claim that "no one could have anticipated" the attacks of 9/11 attracted his scorn in particular on Thursday's Countdown.

Olbermann refers to Bush 9/11 'lies' as 'Insult the Dead-gate'

"This is a White House talking point still, even though your average three-year-old could disprove it using an etch-a-sketch." Olbermann sneered on Thursday, over the heading, "Insult the Dead-gate."

Olbermann's specific target was White House press spokesman Tony Fratto, who responded to a Fox News interviewer's suggestion on Wednesday that before 9/11, "nobody was thinking that there'd be terrorists flying 767s into buildings" by agreeing, "No one could have anticipated that kind of attack -- or very few people."

"Yeah, well, it ain't true," Olbermann remarked, with open contempt dripping from his words, "and out of respect for the people who died that day you damn well better stop saying it."

Olbermann then ran through a list of pre-9/11 warnings of potential al Qaeda hijackings, noting, "A president's daily brief as far back as December 1998 said bin Laden was 'preparing to hijack US aircraft in hopes of trading hostages for jailed radicals.' ... The August 6, 2001 brief, of course, told President Bush -- if he read it -- that there were 'patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings.'"

Olbermann did not mention either the use of airplanes as weapons by the Japanese kamikaze suicide pilots during World War II or the abortive al Qaeda plot of the 1990's known as Project Bojinka, which would have involved both blowing up airliners and crashing a plane into CIA headquarters in Virginia and which may have been the inspiration for 9/11.

"That Mr. Fratto's employers might not have been expected to know the exact hour of these attacks," concluded Olbermann, "does not give him or anybody else the right to perpetuate the lie that 9/11 was impossible to conceive. Clearly, many inside this nation's government anticipated it. It was Mr. Bush and his gang who chose to ignore them."

Rewriting history

Bush continues to make light of his failures and Cheney has the arrogance to admit to condoning war crimes on public television. Meanwhile White House press spokes-persons frantically try to cover their messy tracks and rewrite their dark history in a positive light.
Merry Christmas America. May you find Truth and Justice under the tree this year.

2,000 Greeks protesting...

... is an impressive sight.

A lot of Americans know that 9/11 was not what it is said to have been. How many protestors were there on 9/11 this year?

I started a thread about this on truthaction.org

KO uses "his own words" to say...

...that 9/11 was an inside job...without yelling "9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!"...

...he wears different clothing ie: his TV suits...when he nudges this country closer to the Truth about 9/11...

...he does push the "I'm shouting at YOU" limit as no other Truthseeker on TV...but he has his style...

...and he is somewhat yelling at an inanimate mechanical device...but there are MILLIONS of people in it...

...my guess is that KO has kept up with most of our credible work...

...and is looking at Truthers as the world's best "Truth can-openers" that will open cans for years to come...

...I think that KO knows what he is doing...and that he sees his future...and it includes 9/11 Truth seeking...

...so, can we finally just stop hammering this guy because he isn't doing HIS JOB...

...the way that some of us would do it if WE had HIS JOB...

...which of course...

...is why we do not have HIS JOB!...

...infact...if we are rather quiet about KO doing his 9/11 thing...

...it would be the wiser way to go...

...and if we keep on doing our work...as we know how...

...and he keeps on doing his work...as he knows how...

...without over-reacting and chanting in the streets that...

..."KO is on our side!"...

...or in "corporotocratic speak"...

...OK General Electric, time to Donahue KO...

...most likely...it will all work out quite well...

...but if not...we can always kill the golden egg laying goose...

...other movements have taken care to shoot themselves in their own feet...

...quite often actually...

...why not 9/11 Truth?...

...cause we need be smarter than all of them before us...

Love, Peace and Progress...

......I have to agree. Keith is one smart man. One would be a fool to think he does not know. It is obvious in his tone.
