Finally, Some Goddamn Truth Expressed on U.S. TV News

Don’t freak with the BS topic of yesterday in this clip, wait until around 2:45 minutes in where Dylan Ratigan (the only mainstream journalist as far as I’m concerned has been calling out these Wall Street crooks for some time) goes on a well-deserved rant on MSNBC’s Morning Joe regarding the unsaid truth about America’s “War on Terror” — he directly calls out the “extraordinary failure of our politicians and our media” to explain the money route behind these operations.

Thank you, Mr. Ratigan.

  3. Wow, seldom have I seen anything like that on American television! Seems this Ratigan guy really has some brains and integrity.

    • He really is one of the few worth watching on cable news. He says he’s a conservative. If more conservatives were like this, we’d be in much better shape.

  5. Too logical and too factual to be called a “rant.”

    Hopefully Ratigan continues to report the truth.

  9. The tragedy is that we’re all reeling in shock from something truthful being spoken on TV. That should be the norm we demand and experience…not a rare moment of pleasure to be cherished.

    Very well said. We never hear on TV about Saudi Arabia and even after our own commander on the ground said that there were probably less than 100 al qaeda left in Afghanistan we only hear about this larger vague concept of fighting muslims and not fighting a small group of crazies. If we are still in Afghanistan just to keep the taliban from taking control again and harboring al qaeda the why are we selling jets and heavy arms to Saudi Arabia who is known to harbor terrorists. Bin Laden is a member of a billionaire Saudi family, 17 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 are known to have been from Saudi Arabia, and the vast majority of terrorist funding is tied to Saudi Arabia.

    • The funding is tied to the Saudi Royal family trying to retain power through the radical Wahhabi sect http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wahhabi. The Saudi Royal family also has a history of supporting the private non-politcal finances of US politicians, with favoured business deal where bankruptcy through incompetence is no obstacle to earning millions of dollars.
      The Saudi Royal family and the Wahhabist come to power by killing all opposition, not just vocal opposition by the germicidal slaughter of whole populations. So lets see Fox not-News stand up against not Muslims but just Wahhabists, lets not see a whole religion condemned but just one radical sect challenged. Lets see oil billionaire Wahhabists on trial, justice before greed.

      …..and the Bushs are pretty friendly with the Saudi Princes. I think more likely than Bush ochestrating a false flag operation, he was perhaps tipped off by Saudi sources of a plan. Bush is alllll about oil right (or thats how him and daddy make their $$$), and freindly with one of the biggest oil supplyers in the world ( figures), so surely it’s in his interest to protect his ‘work mates’ and betray his home nation?!?!

  24. Moronic tv people. I stopped watching when the rich white men started yelling about the ‘muslim world’.

    Truth? Haha.. keeping watching tv, I’m sure it will show up eventually.

    • The problem with that guy, I dont know his name, and all other tv ‘pundits’ and talking heads is that they are not reporting news, they are looking for a 30 second sound bite that is emotional and gets peoples attention and safely lays little to no blame on white americans. This is what this guy is doing, its what bill oreilly does… tv is lame.

        Matt Bo: “…. safely lays little to no blame on white Americans…” Hey Matt, why the obsession with “white” Americans?

        After 9-11 we had months of TV spots with folks of all ethnic groups/beliefs, ect saying, “I am an American.” You, my friend, have a racist streak a mile wide.

  26. They all, and by ‘they’ I mean, americans, all believe in their hearts heart that their country isnt really all that evil, and those wacky ‘radicalized muslims’ are really just misguided or being used or what have you. When the reality is pretty obvious to non indoctrinated americans and the rest of the world. They hate you because your country murders, kidnaps, tortures and rapes muslim people every single day and has done so for a long long time.

  29. Like it doesn’t murder, kidnap, torture and rape people who aren’t muslim!

  30. Obviously, but as I’m sure you noticed, it is currently focused on muslim people.

  31. MSNBC is the real fair and balanced network.

  33. Why isn’t part owner of Fox whom is a Saudi pressure Fox to make this distinction?

    If Ratigan is right about the Saudi leaders funding the extremist then the picture isn’t matching, which is why are we attacking Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and not Saudi Arabia?

    Almost all of the 911 attackers came from Saudi Arabia. The distraction would be to say Muslims because that takes the focus off of Saudi Arabia. If the focus was on Saudi Arabia nonstop, Saudi Arabi funding the extremists nonstop, the attackers all Saudi Arabians nonstop, then the talking point would be the Saudi’s attacked us, instead of “Muslims” attacked us.

    Iraq was not part of OPEC because of this it created oil competition between the Saudis and Iraq. If Iraq was knocked out of the picture, it knocks out the oil competition and the oil companies can gouge. What better false flag than to have the U.S attacked by funded Saudi extremists.

    Blood for Oil.

  45. Ratigan’s comments are dead on, but lets not celebrate any ‘new thinking here’. It does little good to now have everyone in America adjust their thinking to “OK, now I understand that some Saudi’s got together and said “lets do something really evil in support of the devil ‘we’ worship so fervently'”….yeah, like this thought adjustment really helps matters. The real break thorough comes when we recognize the pathos in religious extremism in any faith. I read somewhere that every German soldier that went to war in WWI had a belt buckle that said in effect, “God is on our side”. Trust me, Bin Laden firmly believes he is a prophet among men.
