The 9/11 Propaganda Archive: How Scared Should You Be?

Via Media Roots:

A pair of internet archivists who call themselves ‘Neuro Linguistic Programming’ have uploaded Part Two of US corporate media print publications from the immediate days and weeks following 9/11. The duo plans to post multiple full issues of Time and Newsweek as well as other timely magazines that are filled with blatant fearmongering and propaganda about terrorism.

Following 9/11, news media accelerated at an amazing rate, and most companies soon adopted internet versions of their paper or magazines. Before this was commonplace, many interesting pieces of information printed about that day most likely were never reprinted again—due to false information or just abandonment by the propagandists. As we know, many government narratives and unfounded claims about 9/11 were reprinted without any journalistic investigation.

Check out Part One, ‘The Terrorism Survival Guide’ here. Part Two, featured below, gives us a look at a Newsweek titled “Biological & Chemical Terror: How Scared Should You Be?” The featured photo is a man wearing a gasmask, and the entire issue focuses on bio terrorism. Throughout the magazine, that question is addressed repeatedly—but all answered the same: be absolutely terrified. We hope that these archivists continue this fascinating project, it could uncover aspects of the ‘War on Terror’ that most journalists and researchers have completely forgotten about. Above all, it reveals the extent of the conditioning the American people were subject to immediately after our nation became traumatized. They have put the issue up in PDF format which can be downloaded here as well as a slideshow.

    I actually have that issue of Newsweek as well as many other news magazine issues immediately following 9/11.  I have my father to thank, who went out and bought pretty much every news mag for weeks after.  We would look them over together and then he’d store them away, saying that this was history in the making and we should keep them for posterity and perspective.  Couldn’t imagine at the time how right he was.

    9/11 was a huge success.  America fell for it.  The police state was installed.  The banksters got rich from the public treasury.  Well-played sir.

    you cant live scared, I would never live in an area that would make a good target but living scared of an event that will probably never happen and you couldn’t do anything about anyway is pointless

    Abby Martin – you post this to disinfo once every month (see the last time here: 
    http://disinfo.com/2012/05/the-911-propaganda-archive/) — is that all this site is now, a click-farming operation?

        You obviously can’t read, this is a new addition to the 9/11 Propaganda Archive, it’s new information if you bothered to read. Please go troll somewhere else.

        • Marcel Marcel

          Is that you, Abby? (She was just as hysterically defensive in the comments section of her first self-promotional post as well.)

          • Hello Again Moron

            No, it’s the voice of reason. Don’t change the subject because you didn’t take the time to read.

          • Marcel Marcel

             Naw, pretty sure it’s Abby.

    • Abby

      The hell are you talking about Marcel? How is this spam? It’s a new issue of post 9/11 Newsweek that someone took a ton of time uploading in full so people could dissect the propaganda for themselves.

      OMG – the soundtrack music to that video sounds really spooky! There must have been a conspiracy! (Nevermind that the allegations it makes were just conjured out of the air, no references provided, and most have been actively debunked by the sane and educated [e.g. “physically smashed the CDs and scattered them at the airports”].)

    Nobody want to hear that their goernment was behind a mass murder in New York City.  Most Sheople who know 9/11 was an inside job don’t know what to do about it because they will lose friends and maybe even lose their jobs for talking about it. Basic problem is that Patriotism has become a “religion” unto itself with more influence over the mind and body than Christianity.

    Who calls themselves a verb? 

    We’re calling ourselves “Neuro Linguistic Programming.” 

    Great, I’m calling myself a Tax Accounting. On the weekends sometimes, though, I’m a Sky-Diving or a Sailing. 

    If you can’t write English it’s unclear how you’re going to curate articles written in it.

    The “disinformation” in “Disinformation LTD” is apparently intended with Irony. Picture the type of people who have an inside joke, that makes them feel smart at others expense and they laugh at this joke over and over again. That’s the crowd we are dealing with here. The type of people who never get tired of the same joke. Its humor without joy.Its like pseudo humor. Pseudo irony.

    Let me paint a picture of their ilk: A veneer of sophistication, but with huge gaps missing somehow. Like for example, picture Michael Aquino writing a work of science fiction from the perspective of Sauron of Lord Of the Rings, so then some teen ager submits illustrations for it in crayon and he puts it on the website. The part of the human soul that develops aesthetics is not there because a soul is not there. He can’t see that he actually has no taste and is missing lots of things other people see right off.

     Disinfo LTD. is a case of the Foxes designing a hen house and inviting the chickens to lay their eggs here by way of submitting articles. You don’t get paid, you write for free, submitting content. They are in bed with the intelligence establishment, always have been, going a long way back to the organizations inception. So then they work to shape the content by way of misdirection. That’s their job.

    And they aren’t cool people. They are just hacks with no creativity and no soul. This all available in the public record. Editors leaver here and go on to work in the intelligence establishment and then they laugh at the same joke again.
