The Great Deception

The Great Deception: the first (and best?) documentary about 9/11. Zwicker's 2002 film "The Great Deception" is an excellent introduction to the issues of 9/11, the "failure" of the Air Force to intercept the hijacked planes, and George W. Bush's apparent disinterest when told that the towers had been attacked (he stayed in a second grade classroom reading with students for another half hour instead of acting as Commander-in-Chief). The video footage of Bush reading "The Pet Goat" was in this film two and a half years before Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11.
Vision TV is a national, non-profit, multicultural network that has no direct equivalent in the US.

It's worth going over the work the Butcher of Baghdad did for his Texas patrons when he was their butcher:

1979: Seizes power with U.S. approval; moves allegiance from Soviets to U.S. in Cold War.

1980: Invades Iran, then the "Unicycle of Evil," with U.S. encouragement and arms. (In fairness, credit here goes to Nobel Peace Laureate, James Carter.)

1982: Bush-Reagan regime removes Saddam's regime from official U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism.

1983: Saddam hosts Donald Rumsfeld in Baghdad. Agrees to "go steady" with U.S. corporate suppliers.

1984: U.S. Commerce Department issues license for export of aflatoxin to Iraq useable in biological weapons.

1988: Gasses Kurds in Halabja, Iraq.

1987-88: U.S. warships destroy Iranian oil platforms in Gulf and break Iranian blockade of Iraq shipping lanes, tipping war advantage back to Saddam.

1990: Invades Kuwait with U.S. permission.

U.S. permission? On July 25, 1990, the dashing dictator (Saddam Hussein) met in Baghdad with U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie. When Saddam asked Glaspie if the U.S. would object to an attack on Kuwait over the small emirate's theft of Iraqi oil, the ambassador told him, "We have no opinion.... Secretary [of State James] Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction ... that Kuwait is not associated with America." Saddam taped her.

Ah Canada's own little Neo Con, plowing ahead with his "mandate" from less than a 1/3 of Canada's voters. Our own little democracy allowing this type of American corporate clone to steal office because the liberal vote was split.

Canada's census software and hardware has been contracted to LOCKHEED MARTIN the same agency the Bush cartel plans to use to spy on the world.
Lockheed Martin is also named in the torture scandal at Abu Gharib where, as a military contractor they are and were involved in torture.

To get around the wee issue of conflicts galore, the White House crafted a neat little subterfuge. The official press release says the President has not appointed Mr. Baker. Rather Mr. Bush is "responding to a request from the Iraqi Governing Council." That is, Bush is acting on the authority of the puppet government he imposed on Iraqis at gunpoint.

Why is our President so concerned with the wishes of Mr. Baker's clientele? What does Bush owe Baker?

It was Baker, as consigliore to the Bush family, who came up with the strategy of maneuvering the 2000 Florida vote count into a Supreme Court packed with politicos.
There's nothing in the Iraq Strategy about democracy or voting. But there's plenty of detail about creating a free-market Disneyland in Mesopotamia, with "all" state assets -- and that's just about everything in that nation -- to be sold off to corporate powers. The Bush team secret program ordered: "... asset sales, concessions, leases and management contracts, especially those in the oil and supporting industries."
The Strategy lays out a detailed 270-day schedule for the asset grab. And that's why PFC Dervishi was kept there: to prevent or forestall elections. Because no democratically elected government of Iraq could ever sell off its oil. Democracy would have to wait, at the point of a gun, for the "assets sales, concessions, leases" to Bush's corporate buck-buddies.

There you have it. The secret Strategy tells us that, if Bush didn't go into Iraq for the oil, he sure as hell ain't leaving without it.
I do not imagine this blog will change the minds of those who do not want to have their minds changed. I surely do hope it is uncomfortable however to continue to look the other way and feign innocence in the face of the most evil, corrupt administration in the history of the United States of America. If ever there was a case for treason - this is it.
