WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


ANNOUNCEMENT: We took a lightening strike right outside our home and lost power and internet. Fortunately my cell phone is still working, but we will not be able to complete today's radio show. Hopefully we will be back tomorrow, assuming nothing got permanently fried!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"A human being is a part of the whole that we call the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living beings and all of nature." -- Albert Einstein

Move to choke off Federal money from ACORN

“It is evident that ACORN is incapable of using federal funds in a manner that is consistent with the law,” Boehner and the other Republicans told the president. “Simply put, ACORN should not receive another penny of American taxpayers’ money.”

One ACORN insider estimated that the group, and groups affiliated with it, receive $1.5 million to $2 million annually from the federal government, with the bulk of the groups’ money coming from state and local governments.

48% of Consumers Interested in Purchasing a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle

I wanna say something about all these poll's, 1) you can make a poll say anything by finding people with the answers you want (1a) WRH polls do not do this 2) WRH polls usually have way more respondents then any other "Official" polls including this one. So in a nut-shell i believe any WRH poll more then any poll done by anyone, everyone else poll's i see is not worth a grain of salt

The Mysterious Collapse of WTC Seven and the Mysterious death of Barry Jennings

from Inside WTC 7: Besides ignoring these and other reports of explosions made by people outside Building 7, NIST distorted the testimony of two highly credible men who were inside: Michael Hess, who was New York City’s corporation counsel, and Barry Jennings, the deputy director of the Emergency Services Department of the New York City Housing Authority.

Resolving Our Internal Conflict is the Second Step

Fighting an enemy is a multistep process. Identification of the enemy is first - how else can one know who to target? In a previous post the identification of enemies of the American people was discussed. Once the enemy has been defined one is faced with combating this enemy. In our case we will consider defeating a domestic enemy.

THE STRUGGLE FOR AMERICA

Saving money sounds like a good idea, but there is no country with socialized medicine which has been able to save money on health care except by murdering people. Germany led the way in the 1930s, and their murder program turned into the Holocaust. Barack Obama is a monster. He has an enormous amount of hate inside him, and he is capable of atrocities of which we have no concept – unless the American people can rally to stop him

Video: Collection of media reports of explosions going off at WTC on 9/11

Bombs, explosions, secondary explosions, explosive devices....how many more times do we need to hear these words being said by 9/11 witnesses before we start asking questions about what really happened on that awful day?

This video shows that many actual 9/11 witnesses heard and saw explosions going off inside the towers, long before they actually fell. These witnesses include police, firemen and reporters.

And what is even more shocking is the fact that all of this has been largely ignored by the mainstream media after the day itself.

China 'covers suicide bridge in butter'

Government officials in south-east China have ordered workers to cover a 1,000 ft long steel bridge in butter to prevent citizens from using it to attempt suicide.

All the climbable surfaces on the structure in Guangzhou have been covered in greasy fat to put an end to the spate of people threatening to jump from it, The Sun reports.

Government spokesman Shiu Liang said: "We tried employing guards at both ends but that didn't work - and we put up special fences and notices asking people not to commit suicide here.

"None of it worked - and so now we have put butter over the bridge and it has worked very well. Nobody can get up there and nobody who tries ever falls."

Owners of uninsured cars face new fines under new Government curbs

Taxed but uninsured cars left on a public road could be clamped or seized under the new laws which are being unveiled by the Government.

The draconian new powers are intended to tackle an estimated two million uninsured motorists who, the Government says, are responsible for 160 deaths a year.

But the changes have angered civil liberty campaigners and also alarmed motoring groups who fear that law-abiding motorists could be penalised for innocent mistakes, such as allowing their insurance to lapse while they are on holiday.

Good Billions After Bad

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once the money left the building, the government lost all track of it. The Treasury Department knew where it had sent the money, but nothing about what was done with it. Did the money aid the recovery? Was it spent for the purposes Congress intended? Did it save banks from collapse? Paulson’s Treasury Department had no idea, and didn’t seem to care. It never required the banks to explain what they did with this unprecedented infusion of capital.

The intention of Congress when it passed the bailout bill could not have been more clear. The purpose was to buy up defective mortgage-backed securities and other “toxic assets” through the Troubled Asset Relief Program, better known as tarp. But the bill was in fact broad enough to give the Treasury secretary the authority to do whatever he deemed necessary to deal with the financial crisis. If tarp had been a credit card, it would have been called Carte Blanche. That authority was all Paulson needed to switch gears, within a matter of days, and change the entire thrust of the program from buying bad assets to buying stock in banks.

Duh, US national security IS NOT threatened by Afghanistan

The chair of the Joint Chiefs testified to Congress today that “success” in Afghanistan requires more US troops and “certainly much more time.” Senator McCain Orwell-spoke that each day we wait to send more US troops to Afghanistan to put their lives in danger, “puts lives in danger.” President Obama defended the strategy of war to produce peace and happiness by saying, "You never step into the same river twice. And so Afghanistan is not Vietnam." I think the president is absolutely correct with my observations about stepping into the same river for a second time: the experience is not quite the same, only about 99%. Polling data also show American support for this war is at its lowest: 58% disapprove and 39% approve.

Why Propaganda Trumps Truth

The physicist, Steven Jones, has produced overwhelming evidence that explosives were used to bring down the buildings. His evidence is not engaged, examined, tested, and refuted. It is simply ignored.
Dr. Jones’ experience reminds me of that of my Oxford professor, the distinguished physical chemist and philosopher, Michael Polanyi. Polanyi was one of the 20th centuries great scientists....
As a young man in the early years of the 20th century, Michael Polanyi discovered the explanation for chemical absorption. Scientific authority found the new theory too much of a challenge to existing beliefs and dismissed it... One half-century later his discovery was re-discovered by scientists at UC, Berkeley...

Is Black Racism Possible?

The State of Racism: Part 1 - Is Black Racism Possible?
Guy White - 3/9/2008
Accusations of white racism are rampant, with the topic of race turning immediately to the alleged hate deep in the heart of every white person. In fact, any “dialogue” on race is nothing more than a vicious black attack on whites who cannot defend themselves and usually respond with a payment to black organizations and neighborhoods from the government and corporations. But what about black racism? Is it even possible? If so, does it exist? And if it exists, is it more or less virulent than white racism?"Black racism is possible. Racism is an ideology and anyone, including blacks, can embrace it."

"Former cold war foe?" That was the USSR and they do not exist any more. That is like describing present day Germany as our former Nazi foe in WW2. Nazi Germany is GONE. So is the USSR. The US is about to follow along and the government is thrashing about for an enemy they can blame it on.

The Kelly mysteries

There are plenty of questions surrounding the death of Christopher Kelly, the one-time confidante of Rod Blagojevich who was headed off to prison soon.

Questions about what drugs Kelly took. Questions about the "mystery man" with gray hair who tried to pick up Kelly's Cadillac SUV from the hospital. Questions about whether the pressure to cooperate with federal authorities or the prospect of a long stretch in prison, drove him to suicide. Questions about how his death will impact the prosecution of Blagojevich.

There's something else that deserves real scrutiny: What kind of medical care did Kelly get at Oak Forest Hospital and Stroger Hospital?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was it really a suicide, or had Kelly agreed to cooperate with prosecutors?

Beating the War Drums for Iran

When I started blogging back in January, one of my early posts questioned the belief that Obama’s election had ended talk of military action against Iran. I though this view was “almost certainly premature,” because I didn’t think a rapid diplomatic breakthrough was likely and I knew that advocates of a more forceful approach would soon come out of the woodwork and start pushing the new administration to get tough with Tehran.

Yes We Can? New UK Report Says: No You Can't

For many Americans there has always been a narcissistic sense of entitlement in terms of global power but according to a fairly recent UK report conducted by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, the United States could start retreating from the world stage without support from its allies abroad.
According to the study researches have concluded that President Barack Obama will have to turn to others for help dealing with the world’s problems due to the fact that he has no other alternative.

“Domestically Obama may have campaigned on the theme ‘yes we can’; internationally he may increasingly have to argue ‘no we can’t',” the institute said in its annual review of world affairs.

This year, TIFF decided to put a celebratory spotlight on Tel Aviv at the festival, in line with the goals of the Israeli Consulate’s “Brand Israel” program. In its own words, the “Brand Israel” program aims to publicize Israeli culture in order to distract public attention from its human rights record.

Yale pharmacology head, Dr. Joseph Schlessinger, suppressed site exposing sexual, financial misconduct, 14 Sep 2009

Earlier this year or late last year, undisclosed individuals, possibly the aggrieved parties in those cases, registered "josephschlessinger.com", where they placed the court records, transcripts, and links to news articles, all woven together in a morally indignant tone that questioned how Dr. Schlessinger had ever been appointed Yale Pharmacology Chair, given this background.

Rather than suing for libel, which may have been a difficult case to sustain, given that most of his critics' allegations were based on the public record, Dr. Schlessinger took a case to the WIPO, or World Intellectual Property Organization, where he claimed that he owned the commonlaw rights to "josephschlessinger.com".

Company: Regrets not disclosing misconduct

During a hearing that lasted almost six hours, the Commission on Wartime Contracting sharply criticized representatives from ArmorGroup and the State Department for being unaware of what was happening and for not acting more aggressively to correct the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that there is no mention of this contract being pulled immediately, which is what should have happened.

As reported here, 1 Sept 2009:

http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2009/09/animal-house-afghanistan

"The contractor was the subject of a congressional probe earlier this summer that found serious lapses in the company's handling of the embassy security contract, which internal State Department documents said left the embassy compound "in jeopardy." Nevertheless, the government opted to extend the company's 5-year, $189 million contract for another year. "

One has to wonder which congress members have become "acquisitions" of this company, through overt and covert campaign support.

What's more, it's suspected there are 32 more vessels waiting to be found:

The ship was discovered after a former member of the 'Ndrangheta organized crime organization tipped off police -- the informant was personally responsible for sinking this ship and two others.

Unrest Brewing Beneath Gaza Calm

The mile-long stretch that divides Israel’s Erez border crossing into northern Gaza from the Hamas police border post is eerily quiet. But the mountains of rubble, twisted metal, and craters which remain following Israel’s intensive bombing campaign in January serve as a stark reminder that war between the two bitter enemies is still a possibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel is looking for an excuse - any excuse - to exterminate every man, woman, and child in Gaza to claim the territory for themselves. Fatah and Hamas are rearming the best they can, and at this point, who can blame them, looking at the carnage Israel created here in the last major invasion?

Iran nuclear leaks 'linked to Israel'

A report on Iran's nuclear program issued by the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee last month generated news stories publicizing an incendiary charge that US intelligence is underestimating Iran's progress in designing a "nuclear warhead" before the halt in nuclear weapons-related research in 2003.

That false and misleading charge from an intelligence official of a foreign country, who was not identified but was clearly Israeli, reinforces two of Israel's key themes on Iran - that the 2007 US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran is wrong, and that Tehran is poised to build nuclear weapons as soon as possible.

IAEA Conceals Evidence Iran Documents Were Forged

The International Atomic Energy Agency says its present objective regarding Iran is to try to determine whether the intelligence documents purportedly showing a covert Iranian nuclear weapons program from 2001 to 2003 are authentic or not. The problem, according to its reports, is that Iran refuses to help clarify the issue.

But the IAEA has refused to acknowledge publicly significant evidence brought to its attention by Iran that the documents were fabricated, and it has made little, if any, effort to test the authenticity of the intelligence documents or to question officials of the governments holding them, IPS has learned.

Iran Nuke Laptop Data Came from Terror Group

The George W. Bush administration has long pushed the "laptop documents" - 1,000 pages of technical documents supposedly from a stolen Iranian laptop - as hard evidence of Iranian intentions to build a nuclear weapon. Now charges based on those documents pose the only remaining obstacles to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declaring that Iran has resolved all unanswered questions about its nuclear programme.

But those documents have long been regarded with great suspicion by U.S. and foreign analysts. German officials have identified the source of the laptop documents in November 2004 as the Mujahideen e Khalq (MEK), which along with its political arm, the National Council of Resistance in Iran (NCRI), is listed by the U.S. State Department as a terrorist organisation.

Why does the mainline media still deny all 9/11 evidence?

It´s Israel, of course.

And at that point, it can´t be covered up any more.
Israel´s political class and it´s intelligence agencies were in it, deep, deep in it, together with American Neocons, fanatic supporters of Israel.

Obama Is Pushing Israel Toward War

It is not in the U.S. interest that Israel be the instrument of Iran's disarmament. For starters, its ability to do so is iffy: Israeli strategists are quietly putting it about that even a successful attack may have to be repeated a few years down the road as Iran reconstitutes its capacity. For another thing, Iran could respond to such a strike not only against Israel itself, but also U.S targets in Iraq and the Persian Gulf.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel, with a flurry of op-ed articles, is desperately attempting to goad US leadership into attacking Iran, so they don't have to. And a big reason is, the Israeli military isn't convinced that Israel alone can pull this attack off with the successful outcome they want.

Unfortunately, this country's leadership thoroughly spoiled Israel with our wonderful job of having "neutralized" its former existential threat Iraq, which Israel and the US claimed to have nuclear weapons, which Iraq did not have.

Israel wants it to be our kids who do the fighting, the getting maimed, and the dying to neutralize its newest existential threat, Iran. And after Iran, there will be the next, and the next and the next. Israel will never not have an existential threat in the region they don't want the US to neutralize for them.

I say, let's sit this one out. Let's grab some popcorn, and watch as Russia defends Iran military against an Israeli military strike. That just could get interesting!

FLASHBACK - THE "WHEN PIGS FLY" FLU

Here are some of the relevant facts.

In 1974, a document entitled National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests was released by the United States National Security Council under the direction of Henry Kissinger. This document, National Security Study Memorandum 200, declared overpopulation, especially in the third world to be a strategic threat to the United States because of resource depletion and popular uprisings against US foreign policy.

India’s Internet Connection to China Inexplicably Cut

Indian internet connections to servers in China appear to have been cut with no ability for Indian web users to access websites hosted in China.

The breach also appears to have affected corporate email with Indian employees are unable to connect to their colleagues and friends in China. Users in India have had to use services based overseas like Gmail to connect to China

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This disruption could have been caused by a host of reasons.

However, before a true shooting war begins, one of the first things one sees is a cutting off of communications.

Indian Press: Military Police Shot by Chinese Troops Along Sikkim Border

China apparently seriously escalated the ongoing border conflict between itself and India as reports in the Indian press indicate that two Indian military personnel were shot and wounded after coming under fire from Chinese troops in the Indian-controlled Kerang area of Sikkim.

The injured soldiers were apparently members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, India’s regional border force patrolling the Line of Actual Control (LAC). They were injured in bullets fired from the Chinese side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If true, one has to wonder what the folks in Beijing are attempting to accomplish here.

Is it possible that China has decided that if the US starts wars in Iran/Pakistan/Georgia, that it could just smash through Bangladesh to claim a warm water port on the Bay of Bengal?

And as reported here on 21 July 2009:

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/cndy/2009-07/21/content_8451977.htm

When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Afghanistan: Recount Ordered At 10 Percent Of Polling Stations

Ballots from about 10 percent of Afghanistan's polling stations must be recounted because of suspicions of fraud in last month's presidential election, according to an order from a U.N.-backed body, an official said Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the end of the day, the outcome will probably be the same, but we'll hear much more self-congratulatory chest-thumping from Americans and NATO members, assuring themselves of what a magnificent job they did to make sure that this election "free and fair" for the Afghan people.

This "election" is an absolute fraud and a sham. This is simply the re-anointing of Karzai for one more term in office, so that the US and NATO can deal with the "devil they know", rather than the devil they don't know.

And even if, by some miracle, Abdullah Abdullah squeaks ahead for a marginal victory over Karzai, his ability to actually created the reforms on which he based his ca,[aogm will be severely challenged by the on-going corruption of his predecessor.

Sign the new Truth Statement, updated for 2009

On the eighth anniversary of 9/11, in spite of Americans having elected the "other" party in hopes it would deliver on its promise of a change in direction, we find ourselves asking these same questions and encountering the same resistance to transparency. The ensuing wars have destroyed millions of lives, our economy lies in ruin, our civil liberties are in tatters, habeas corpus is in the grave and posse comitatus dissolved, with thousands of Americans now sick--many dying--from the exposure to toxins at Ground Zero because they stood up for all of us on 9/11. Because this issue is as relevant as the day we issued this Statement in 2004, we now offer again the opportunity to endorse this call for answers, and join with those who have already taken a stand.

Musharraf admits US aid diverted

Former president Pervez Musharraf says the US military aid given to Pakistan during his tenure was used to strengthen defences against India.

The US gave $10bn dollars to Pakistan to fight the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

Turki al-Faisal – Land First, Then Peace

Today, supporters of Israel cite the outdated 1988 Hamas charter, which called for the destruction of Israel, as evidence of Palestine's attitude toward a two-state solution, without considering the illegalities of Israel's own occupation. Israel has never presented any comprehensive formulation of a peace plan. Saudi Arabia, to the contrary, has done so twice: the Fahd peace plan of 1982 and the Abdullah peace initiative of 2002. Both were endorsed by the Arab world, and both were ignored by Israel.

Teaching Students About 9/11

Teachers say that today's middle and high school students might be too young to have strong memories of the attacks, so the program can help them develop insight into what actually happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The Arabs did it. You should all hate them. Forever!"

(Ahem)

The US Government must really be scared of the 9-11 truthers. At a time when educational resources are already scarce, and American test scores are lagging far behind those of other developed nations, students are being force-fed the official story of 9-11 in classes that SHOULD be teaching them skills with which to find jobs and build a better tomorrow.

When education becomes indoctrination, that is a sign of dictatorship.

Join the Appeal for Truth about 9/11

September 11, 2009
Peter Dale Scott, with Michael Berger and Janice Matthews

In the last few days Glenn Beck and the Washington Times have forced Van Jones to resign as environmentalist "green jobs" adviser to the White House. His principal offense: having signed a 2004 Statement from 911truth.org calling for a new investigation of the events of 9/11.

This is a moment of truth for all who want America to be an open society. As the Los Angeles Times reported on September 8, "Other conservatives, smelling blood in the water, are sharpening their knives." Why should they not? The White House has just capitulated to a dishonest attack claiming that Jones, because he signed the 911truth Statement, "thinks the Bush administration blew up the World Trade Centers and covered it up." You can check Beck's capacity for accuracy by comparing this claim to the relevant call in the Statement itself: "for immediate public attention to unanswered questions that suggest that people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

It was a time to think about political prisoners. This country claims that there are none but, unfortunately, that is not the case. There are about 220 political prisoners in U.S. prisons representing many issues from civil rights to environmentalism.

Israeli rules dictated that entrance would be limited to men over 50 and women over 45, but even these worshippers were restrained behind barbed wire fences as numbers swelled in the searing heat.

Brazilian Parliament recommends freezing out Israelis from third largest export market

“This decision is an enormous blow for Israel’s economy and foreign relations”, says Jamal Juma’ of the Stop the Wall Campaign.

The Brazilian Parliamentary Commission on Foreign Relations and National Defense has recommended that the parliament should not ratify the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Mercosur and the State of Israel until “Israel accepts the creation of the Palestinian state on the 1967 borders”.

This decision is an explicit act of pressure on the Israeli government to comply with international law, and a rejection of years of incessant Israeli lobbying, pressuring for a vote to ratify the agreement.

Health Care Deceit

The current health care “debate” shows how far gone representative government is in the United States. Members of Congress represent the powerful interest groups that fill their campaign coffers, not the people who vote for them.

The health care bill is not about health care. It is about protecting and increasing the profits of the insurance companies. The main feature of the health care bill is the “individual mandate,” which requires everyone in America to buy health insurance. Senate Finance Committee chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont), a recipient of millions in contributions over his career from the insurance industry, proposes to impose up to a $3,800 fine on Americans who fail to purchase health insurance.

That photo of the 9/12 march on Washington? It’s fake.

On Sept. 12, a group called FreedomWorks – with a little help from Glenn Beck at Fox News – organized a “taxpayer” rally in DC to protest the “irresponsible government takeover of our nation’s healthcare, devastating new energy taxes, and trillions of dollars in red ink.” When the mainstream media didn’t pick up on the story, several conservative bloggers began distributing a photo of protesters clogging the DC mall.

Problem: the photo is from a totally different event. Politifact, a nonpartisan journalistic fact-checking organization, checked in on Monday with Pete Piringer, public affairs officer for the DC Fire and Emergency Department. Piringer “unofficially” estimated that between 60,000 and 75,000 people had shown up. He added that the photo circulating conservative sites was almost certainly not from this year.

When the ice age ended, how did the polar bears feel?

However, it is hard to see what could possibly derail climate change. The masterstroke was of course changing its name from global warming to climate change. Tony Blair, the future prime minister, once fought his way through a blizzard to give a speech in Davos. “Why is it always snowing when I give a speech on global warming?” he joked. Answer: because perhaps it isn’t warming? Anyway, the spin masters moved in and redubbed it climate change and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.

The truth is that there has always been climate change. Imagine how glum the polar bears must have felt at the end of the Ice Age. Once they probably holidayed in the Mediterranean; now they are left with just a couple of icebergs.

Ron Paul: Federal government ‘one giant toxic asset’

The US economy has not really recovered from last year’s financial crisis, and the policies of the Federal Reserve, the US’s central bank, are ensuring that the suffering will continue much longer than necessary, US House Rep. Ron Paul told CNN on Monday.

“They claim there’s a recovery but the recovery ought to be measured by the people working. True unemployment is now 16 percent, and the people who lost money have not regained the money. The people who lost houses have not gotten their houses back. There is no recovery,” said Paul.

Iraq and Afghanistan don't need US troops for security. They can ask the UN if they want help

One of the arguments for US troops to remain in the two countries we invaded is that even if our wars were mistakes, it’s our duty to stay until those countries can manage their own security. If US troops leave, we’ll subject civilians to escalating violence.

As eminent Princeton philosopher Harry Frankfurt distinguished in his 2005 Bestseller as a strictly academic term, that rhetoric is bullshit.

When political “leadership” makes that argument, it’s a lie of omission. Without the comprehensive information that Iraq and Afghanistan have full authority within their governments to make that determination for themselves, that statement is misleading Americans into thinking that US security is their only option. It is not.

Video: The Health Insurance Racket

CIGNAs Edward Hanway spends his holidays in a $13 million beach house in New Jersey. Meanwhile, regular Americans are routinely denied coverage for the care they need when they need it most.

Welcome to the American health insurance industry. Instead of helping policyholders attain the health security they need for their families, big insurance companies get rich by denying coverage to patients. Now theyre sending lobbyists to Washington, DC to twist the arms of lawmakers to oppose reform of the status quo. Why? Because the status quo pays.

The Real News Network now covering some 911 news

Many have not heard of the Real News Network. http://therealnews.com

A few months ago I wrote to them requesting they cover 9/11 stories such as the nano-thermite paper. They replied that there is only so much they can cover as they are small, underfunded etc. I read between the lines and figured they are afraid to cover 9/11 for fear of losing subscribers and or being lumped in with conspiracy theorists. They bill themselves as an online TV network with aspirations of becoming big-time on cable. Until now, it is my belief that they have systematically excluded 9/11 news just like the major media, however, if you look at the stories, they do cover much in-depth news that the major media won't, such as the real issues behind the health care debate, the real story of the coup in Honduras, Israeli war crimes, etc. I watch their interviews because I get a lot of information I get no where else.

Killing America's Kids

The web is covered in stink today because of a reporter for the Associated Press, Julie Jacobson, who photographed the death of a Marine whose legs had just been blown off. The kid was Joshua Bernard, a Lance Corporal of 21 years. When the photo appeared, Robert Gates, the Secretary of Defense [sic] furiously tried to get the AP to quash the photo. It didn’t, to its everlasting credit.
