9/11





I’m curious as to our readers’ opinions of Charlie Veitch, profiled by the Las Vegas Guardian Express as a former 9/11 Truther who changed his mind: Once one of Britain’s principal conspiracy…











Dissecting the forthcoming Showtime documentary by RJ Cutler, The World According To Dick Cheney, Maureen Dowd points out the unrepentant admission by ex-VP Dick Cheney that he lied when giving testimony before the 9/11 Commission. From her column for the New York Times (read the whole thing for even more lies):

EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin interviews former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, about the two party “dictatorship” and corporate censorship.
