Obama: “I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11,”

Thursday 4th June, 2009


CAIRO – In remarks being translated live for broadcasts and Webcasts in every major language, President Barack Obama said Thursday that the United States wants “common ground” and “a new beginning” with the Muslim world, where America’s image plummeted with the Bush administration’s response to the 9/11 attacks.

“Much has been made of the fact that an African-American with the name Barack Hussein Obama could be elected President. But my personal story is not so unique,” he said in the Grand Hall of Cairo University.

“The dream of opportunity for all people has not come true for everyone in America, but its promise exists for all who come to our shores.”

The 55-minute speech was remarkable and historic not so much for the delivery or even the words, but for the context, the orator, the moment. Obama included blunt talk about the United States, Israel, Iraq, his predecessor and al Qaeda.

“I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11,” he said, speaking before a red curtain and six pairs of U.S. and Egyptian flags. “But let us be clear: al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day.”

The president, who left the room to applause from an audience carefully chosen to reflect diverse perspectives, invoked the “Holy Koran” twice, and the “Holy Bible” once.

“It’s easier to start wars than to end them” he said. “It’s easier to blame others than to look inward; to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right path, not just the easy path. There is one rule that lies at the heart of every religion – that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. [Applause] This truth transcends nations and peoples.”


Conservative critics seized on a passage in which he said: “Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail. So whatever we think of the past, we must not be prisoners of it. Our problems must be dealt with through partnership; progress must be shared.”

9/11Truth movement has a lot of work to do

He also stated...

"And yet Al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale. . . . These are not opinions to be debated; these are facts to be dealt with."

I knew Obama was not going to be much help to America's quest for truth and justice,
Here in Canada they blame the Taliban for 9/11... (Glenn Beck would jump in here and claim...they are all the same!)
If these leaders (Obama/Harper) are going to play the big lie game, at least read from the same script ...
Harper knows all about reading from scripts... Thanks to the Liberals exposing this during the last federal election.

Andrea Sands of the Edmonton Journal reported January 21 2007, quoting Defense Minister Gordon O'Connor as saying "Canada is fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan in retribution for the 9/11 attacks that killed at least 3,000 people, including 24 Canadians"


By the way , how come Saudi Arabia continues to get a free pass while Iraqis and Afghanistans get all the blame and stuffing kicked out of them? Were they not alledged Saudi Terrorists Mr. Obama?


I truly hope that last question was sarcastic - it is common knowledge that Saudi royals have tight ties to the administration of this government and their country is exempt from any sort of scrutiny or rule of law. They have a free pass to murder as many as they wish, and the supreme court even sides with them when confronted by the victim's family members. It's a bunch of jerks jerking each other at a world party and we foot the bill with our taxes, our rights and ultimately our blood.


it was mockery on my part

I'm no Obama-Llama...

but to his credit, he also said this during his speech today.

All in all, I think a lot of the things he said today are things that desperately needed to be said to the Muslim world. As Mike Malloy noted on his show tonight, can you imagine Bush delivering that speech? Nope, didn't think so.

But, as we all know, actions speak louder than words.

Obama is a Smoooooother Con Man.

it is good that he admits that «In the middle of the Cold War, the United States played a role in the overthrow of a democratically elected Iranian government», but that was about crimes committed back in 1953, sooo long ago, and it is possible that Pentagon cannot afford a war with Iran under the current crisis. (Even as the whole Empire supports the US by taking its export dollars, export Treasury bills and mortgage backed and other federally supported credit, it is perhaps not enough.)
Anyway, by Obama we can only expect words, words, words.

Good Cop

Acknowledging that the United States overthrew Mossadegh is like acknowledging that the sky is blue.

The man the CIA put in charge of the operation -- Kermit Roosevelt -- wrote a book on the subject.

No one is denying that Obama is more articulate than his predecessor. He is undoubtedly improving the image of the United States on the world stage. The question is whether the image corresponds to the reality. Obama should be judged by his actions, not his words.

"Reaching out" to the Muslim world is indeed a step in the right direction, but unless Obama's flowery speech is backed up by major policy changes it amounts to another Obama con job.

I have come to the conclusion that Obama is the ultimate confidence man. The world's greatest used car salesman.

We should remember that Egypt is a US client state with a brutal, repressive government. It has consistently aided American imperial designs in the region, and has also played a supportive role in Israel's ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians.

Wanna hear something that didn't make it into Obama's speech?

During the Cold War, the President of Egypt was almost assassinated by mistake.

According to William Blum, CIA director Allen Dulles mistook a comment by President Eisenhower that the "Nasser problem could be eliminated" to mean that the Egyptian President was to be assassinated, when in fact Eisenhower was merely referring to improved American-Egyptian relations. Luckily the mistake was caught in time and the operation cut short.
