CHOMSKY FEARS 9/11 DEBATE
14 Sep 2006
When questioned about his stance on the 9/11 issue, Chomsky timidly regurgitates the official line by saying that the version we are force-fed by the mainstream media is "pretty much what happened. He claims that he hasn't seen any "credible evidence" to suggest otherwise.
It's all fine and good that Mr. Chomsky confronts Israel for its phony justification for mass murder in Lebanon [ http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/09/345826.shtml ]-- an obvious attempt by him to regain the trust of the anti-war movement, which is finally embracing the 9/11 Truth movement -- but let us *NEVER FORGET* where he stands on the most important issue of our time: the state-terror apparatus that is plunging the world into a totalitarian fascist nightmare.

When questioned on Dr. Hesham Tillawi's online video program about his stance on the 9/11 issue, Chomsky timidly regurgitates the official line by saying that the version we are force-fed by the mainstream media is "pretty much what happened", with 19 Arab hijackers responsible for the planning and execution of the attacks. He claims that he hasn't seen any "credible evidence" to suggest otherwise.
[ http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5515995256268661504 ]

At this point in the interview, the informed viewer and reader of his work will ask: "Where has Chomsky been for the last five years? Has he not heard of the work of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, particularly the work of engineer Dr. Judy Wood, physicist Dr. Stephen Jones, philosopher Dr. James Fetzer and theologian Dr. David Griffin? Has he not read about Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's appeal to the world for an investigation into 9/11?"

CHOMSKY’S LACK OF EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HIS 9/11 POSITION

How is it possible that he hasn’t “seen any credible evidence” when the Scholar's work has been posted all over the internet and has even made the corporate press because of the controversy it is initiating? Is it not arrogance on his part to dismiss these academics as "lacking credibility"? Where is Chomsky's evidence for this dismissal of his colleagues' work?

Instead he cites an imaginary and illusory body of "thousands of highly qualified engineers" with the "appropriate credentials" that can apparently prove how the official collapse model is scientifically sound. Who are these engineers? Why won’t they, along with the NIST engineers, debate the peer-reviewed science put forth by the Scholars? This group of brave scientists and intellectuals not only possess "appropriate credentials" and backgrounds, but, together, have systematically dismantled the FEMA, NIST and 9/11 Commission cover-up reports. Is it not revealing that these government "scientists" collectively refuse to publicly debate Scholars for 9/11 Truth!!!
[ http://www.teamliberty.net/id273.html ]

So where does Chomsky position himself within this debate? Why is he openly accusing the 9/11 truth movement of "wasting an enormous amount of time and energy", that "could be better focused on more important issues"? What issues are more important than the events that have led us into an era of "permanent war"? Why is he ignoring the world public's call for an international and independent public inquiry?

NECESSARY QUESTIONS ON UNNECESSARY ILLUSIONS

In light of all this, we are forced to ask some very unpleasant questions with regards to Chomsky's political and moral agenda, as well as his ideological allegiances. Does he know something about the Israeli connection to terrorism and 9/11 and is he afraid to make it public? (Do recall Sharon's explicit declaration on October 3rd, 2001, that "We, the Jewish people, control America and the Americans know it." [IAP News])

Is Chomsky an ideological supporter of Zionism, as claimed by Dr. Norman G. Finkelstein, author of The Holocaust Industry, in an interview given to Snowshoe Films? [ Watch "Straussians, My Behind" http://www.snowshoefilms.com/palestine.html ] If he is an ideological Zionist, then is he covering up the Israeli power-elite's involvement in international terrorism? Isn't it interesting, if not telling, that he avoids all discussion of the Federal Reserve and its Zionist control when he discusses economic power in America? Is this not lying-by-omission, something that he exposes with regard to the corporate media in his book, "Manufacturing Consent"?

Is his stance with regard to 9/11 and "terrorism" not an indirect means of "manufacturing consent" for the "War on Terror"? If so, Chomsky is complicit in the very power system and war machine that he has always condemned. Is it not significant that he has remained employed, despite his dissident activities, by one of the largest weapons developers in the United States, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he began working directly under the U.S. Army during the 1950s. [ http://www.questionsquestions.net/docs0209/0920_response.html ]

This leads us to this crucial question: is Chomsky's 9/11 position a result of his fear of power, do they have 'dirt' on him, or has he always been a high-level agent of state-propaganda working only within the acceptable confines of a specific, yet ambiguous ideological framework?

This article CENSORED on Portland Indymedia
15 Sep 2006
This article's title was removed from the sidewire on IMC Portland, but it remains on the sidewire of its 911 Investigation page. http://portland.indymedia.org/en/topic/911investigation/

The article itself was deleted from the server and is now unavailable.
http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/09/345917.shtml

Portland has been INFILTRATED by COINTELPRO moles, either cyber or real.
All trace of this article now removed from Portland Indymedia
15 Sep 2006
After repeated attempts to publish this article on the Portland Indymedia page yesterday, I finally gave up and began posting it elsewhere.

After posting it to Indybay.org (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2006/09/14/18311562.php) I added a comment underneath describing my frustration with and suspicion of IMC Portland. (This was not the first time that I had encountered administrative anomalies at IMC Portland.)

A few minutes after posting the comment at Indybay, the article appeared on the sidewire of IMC Portland and the comment disappeared from Indybay!

Then something even stranger happened. Two favorable comments appeared underneath the article at Portland, which is normal. I was waiting for the usual unfavorable comments to appear BELOW the first two comments, as would be normally expected, so I kept returning to my Portland post; however, after reloading the page a bit later, I was dumfounded to see that a NEW comment had appeared ABOVE the first two comments. At that point, I knew something sinister was going on behind the scenes at Indymedia. Only someone with access to the server and understanding of the software could be responsible for this sabotage.

I immediately posted a comment to Portland, but after checking back later to see if my comment had been posted, I found that my article had been DELETED from the server. The link was also gone from the sidewire on the mainpage, but a link still remained on the 911 Investigation page. I immediately saved the 911 Investigation page to my hard drive to prove to my friends and family that I'm not "crazy", as most of the Indymedia crew will probably think.

Today, that link on the 911 Investigation sidewire is also gone and I have the proof that it was originally there.

So, to the readers of Indymedia: this project started out as an amazing free and independent media site, but a LOT has changed since its creation.

I am afraid that Indymedia has lost its "indy".
Indybay deleting my comments
16 Sep 2006
At least 3 of my comments on IMC Portland's censorship have been deleted from Indybay.org.
http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2006/09/14/18311562.php

This is TOTALLY CONTRARY to the intended goals and practices of the Indymedia collectives, as stated by their original "mission statement".

I am deeply sadened by this discovery, for I was a part of its "team" several years back and we all had such high hopes for it.

I guess that is what happens in an uncritical "open collective" that allows virtually anyone to become a member: a group of sitting ducks for the state!
Proof article appeared on Portland

This file is a saved version of Portland's 911 Investigation page BEFORE they deleted the file and the links on the sidewire.

Examine the right-hand sidewire and you'll see "CHOMSKY FEARS 9/11 DEBATE" third link from the top.

This link is no longer on Portland's sidewire; it is no longer on their newswire and the article has been deleted from their server.
Let NOAM make up his own mind
24 Sep 2006
I think Dr. Chomsky can make up his own mind about the evidence without having everyone analyze his motives. The 911 incidents represent complex historical phenomena that need further study, just as Dr. Griffin and Dr. Steven Jones are calling for. I trust Dr. Chomsky's honesty with himself and with us. His books are painfully researched for their accuracy. I think he deserves to be given the elbow room to reach his own conclusions about the US Government's involvement in the events of 911. From a moral perspective isn't it more criminal of Bush to pursue two unnecessary wars murdering 100,000 Iraqis and numerous Afgans purely to further US geopolitical hegemony than to murder 3000 Americans? Americans are not more valuable than other people, are they? (Hopefully we can agree on this much of a moral paradigm.)

Chomsky's Moral Disintegration, or His Ideological Unveiling?
25 Sep 2006
I am sorry, but Chomsky’s arrogant and irrational dismissal of the Scholars’ work is contrary to all academic procedure and academic honesty.

He travels the world giving lectures on US foreign policy and yet he completely ignores the fraudulent justification for our present “war without end”: false-flag terrorism, without which, the US and Israel would have ZERO CREDIBILITY and would face nothing but opposition to their phoney “War on Terror”. Instead, we have millions of people still believing the official lies and still calling for the blood of Arabs.

Is this moral on Chomsky’s part? Is this the scholarly integrity that so many credit him with?

He is indirectly fuelling the war machine by refusing to confront the myth of terrorism.

With regard to 9/11 and JFK’s assassination, he actually went so far as to say “who cares about these events? People die all the time”.

This position is absolutely INSENSITIVE, DISGUSTING, IMMORAL and, quite honestly, FASCISTIC.

If any members of his family had perished on that day, do you think that he would be make such vile public statements?? If he, or his family, were targets of the false-flag attacks and the death squads in Iraq, do you think that he would be able to utter such despicable words?

There is something peculiarly sinister about someone with his academic standing resorting to such an intellectual and spiritual low.

RE: Censorship on IMC Portland
25 Sep 2006
In a strange, yet elucidating turn of events, the above article has REAPPEARED on the Portland Indymedia server. However, the article still does not appear in the Newswire Archive or on the 9/11 Investigation Archive.

It is obvious that IMC Portland is no longer independent and democratic, and is practicing censorship. Even worse, the site administrators are engaging in COINTELPRO-type dirty tricks.

The question remains, if it is under control, by whom? WHO ARE THE CONTROLERS AND WHERE DO THEY RESIDE?

Are they working from some central computer installation in the American or Israeli intelligence apparatus, or have they physically infiltrated the Portland Collective?

And why would they see it necessary to treat this article as unworthy of -- or a danger to -- the readers of Portland Indymedia?
