corrupted by misinformation

document cited by President Bush in his
recent speech at the Capital Hilton Hotel on how to 'win the war on
terror' cites conspiracies as one of the wellsprings of terrorism
and threatens to "address" and "diminish" the problems they are
causing the government in fulfilling their agenda.
Bush referred to the strategy paper as "an unclassified
version of the strategy we've been pursuing since September the
11th, 2001," that takes into account, "the changing nature of
document says that terrorism springs from "subcultures of
conspiracy and misinformation," and that "terrorists recruit more
effectively from populations whose information about the world is
contaminated by falsehoods and corrupted by conspiracy theories. The
distortions keep alive grievances and filter out facts that would
challenge popular prejudices and self-serving propaganda."
terminology echoes President Bush's speech (video below) to the UN
General Assembly on November 10th 2001 in which he stated, "Let us
never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks
of September the 11th, malicious lies that attempt to shift the
blame away from the terrorists themselves, away from the guilty."
This is an outright threat to the 9/11 truth
movement and is meant to have a chilling effect on freedom of
It is also a callous reminder that the
administration that has been the progenitor of the most heinous and
deliberate campaign to mislead and lie to its own people is so
transfixed by its own hubris that it has the temerity to accuse
others of propagating deceptive information.
This is the same administration that deliberately included the Niger
yellow cake fraud in a state of the union speech to sell a war -
knowing that the information was completely bogus.
How dare they threaten us with the very defining
characteristic of their black legacy and equate us with terrorists?
This is a direct assault on the alternative media
and a continuation of the twilight zone rhetoric that saw the
administration attempt to link its critics with Fascists and Hitler
appeasers. The only fascists that should really concern us are not
imaginary 'Blogofascists' or 'Islamofascists' but the Neo-Fascist
slugs that occupy the White House and their cheerleading sycophants
in the mainstream media and congress.
This is by no means the first time political
enemies of the state have been smeared as terrorist sympathizers.
Jones' 2001 documentary film
9/11: The Road to
Tyranny featured footage from a FEMA symposium given to
firefighters and other emergency personnel in Kansas City in which
it was stated that t he founding fathers, Christians and
homeschoolers were terrorists and should be treated with the utmost
suspicion and brutality in times of national emergency.
We have highlighted previous training manuals
issues by state and federal government bodies which identify whole
swathes of the population as potential terrorists. A
Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Law Enforcement pamphlet
gives the public characteristics to identify terrorists that
include buying baby formula, beer, wearing Levi jeans, carrying
identifying documents like a drivers license and traveling with
women or children.
Virginia training manual used to help state employees
recognize terrorists lists anti-government and property rights
activists as terrorists and includes binoculars, video cameras,
pads and notebooks in a compendium of terrorist tools.
Shortly after 9/11 a
Phoenix FBI manual that was disseminated amongst federal
employees at the end of the Clinton term caused waves on the
Internet after it was revealed that potential terrorists
included, "defenders of the US Constitution against federal
government and the UN, " and individuals who "make numerous
references to the US Constitution." Lawyers everywhere cowered
in fear at being shipped off to Gitmo.
In May we
broke the exclusive of a nationwide FEMA program which is
training Pastors and other religious representatives to become
secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey
the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law,
property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.
