9/11: Science and Conspiracy

with 4 comments

I just finished watching this two hour “documentary” on the National Geographic Channel, which is of course half-owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation; also known affectionately as the creator of Fox News. And I must say, my expectations were not only met, but they were met in a very satisfying manner. Every single time I see corporate media at work in its one and only role of spreading propaganda, which is everyday, it gives me the energy I need to continue tirelessly searching for the truth.

I’ll end this post with Christopher Bollyns very relevant 2006 article:

National Geographic Channel and 9/11 Propaganda

Christopher Bollyn / American Free Press | March 24 2006

On the fourth anniversary of 9/11, under the good name of the National Geographic Society, anti-Muslim and anti-Arab propaganda will be dished out to millions of unsuspecting viewers. Viewers beware!

“Inside 9/11” is a 4-hour cable television series being shown on the National Geographic Channel that is cleverly disguised political propaganda designed to bolster the government version of events. Millions of Americans will watch the two 2-hour programs on September 8 and 11 without realizing they are being subjected to propaganda of a very dangerous sort.

The two programs, “War on America” and “Ground Zero,” are part of the “Inside 9/11” series written and produced by Jonathan David Towers of Towers Productions from Chicago. Towers has made several propaganda type films about the attack on the Pentagon, Saddam Hussein, the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, and a documentary called “America’s Jewish Gangsters.”

The “Inside 9/11” series seeks to reinforce the official version that Osama Bin Laden and 19 Arab hijackers were the architects and executors of the massive terror attacks that befell the United States four years ago.

So who are Jonathan Towers and National Geographic Channel?

Jonathan Towers grew up in a suburb of New York and is a 1982 graduate of Yale University. Fleshing Out Skull & Bones (2003) by Kris Millegan lists Mr. Towers as a 1982 initiate of Yale’s super-secret elitist fraternity known as The Order of Skull & Bones.

President George W. Bush belongs to this secret and powerful fraternity, as does his father and grandfather. Sen. John F. Kerry is also a member.

The National Geographic Channel, which carries the program, is primarily controlled by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., which might lead one to ask which nation is meant by “national.”

Murdoch, the Australian-born owner of FOX News, owns nearly 67 percent of the National Geographic Channel in the United States and 50 percent of National Geographic Channel International (NGCI).

Asked about the propagandistic nature of the “Inside 9/11” film, Dan Saunders, director of marketing for NGCI told AFP: “We have a licensing agreement to broadcast under the brand of National Geographic. Editorially we have to respect the traditions and values of the National Geographic Society.”

Asked if he was concerned that Muslims and Arab viewers would be incensed by the content of the 9/11 series, Saunders said, “We have a non-political view of the world.” That is, however, clearly not the case with “Inside 9/11,” which seeks to place the entire blame for the events of 9/11 on Islamic terrorists.

Murdoch, it should be noted, is known for his support of Israeli right-wing politicians of the Likud Party, especially Binyamin Netanyahu and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Murdoch openly advocates a pro-war position which has been echoed by the editorial managers of the nearly 200 newspapers and many television networks he controls.

Murdoch is also known for having produced a 2000 program called “The Lone Gunman,” in which a passenger jet was remotely hijacked and flown at the World Trade Center with the intention of crashing it into the building. The uncanny similarities between the Murdoch film and the subsequent events of 9/11 is a subject American Free Press has investigated, but one which has been completely ignored by the controlled press.

The media tycoon is a known acquaintance of both Larry Silverstein and Frank Lowy, the well-insured lease holders of the World Trade Center property.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins

leave a comment »

John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is about his life as, quite obviously, an economic hit man; which he describes as a person commissioned to do the dirty work of the United States corporatocracy. For ten years of his life, his job was to bring countries rich in natural resources, specifically oil, into control of US interests using sinister schemes that brought them into massive debt to powerful US owned corporations, and the US government itself. This was the beginning of a new and subtle form of imperialism according to Perkins; a new tool to expand control of the US empire to sovereign nations around the world.

If you haven’t already, I’d highly recommend checking it out.
