July 1, Glenn Beck hosted Michael Scheuer, former head of the ‘Alec Station‘ Bin Laden unit. Scheuer claims “The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.” while Beck nods approvingly.
June 10, 2009, Beck smeared the entire 9/11 Truth Movement by falsely claiming that the despicable racist Holocaust Museum shooter Von Brunn is a hero of ‘9/11 Truthers’, and that Truthers are “like Al Qaeda! They’d like to destroy us, and they will work with anyone. There are also people like white supremacists or 9/11 truthers that would also like to destroy the country. They’ll work with anybody they can.”
The 9/11 Truth Movement is working to establish Truth and Justice- we are demanding answers and accountability and the movement as a whole is non-violent.
If Beck agrees with Scheuer, it would seem that he himself is an advocate of violence and destruction as a political tactic, i.e. terrorism.
See this commentary by JohnA at TruthMove.org:
“The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.” – Michael Scheuer, head of the CIA’s Osama Bin Laden unit from 1996 to 1999 – during an interview interview with Glenn Beck.
These are mighty dangerous sentiments.
It appears the far-right in america openly seeks violence against the american public – for our own good – so we can return to the safety of daddy’s arms – and hyper-reactionary politics – and police state tactics – and unitary executive privilages – and a crushing Iranian-like reaction to put down all political dissent.
Yes – that is what these cowards claim will make us safe.
It is interesting that there are THOSE who take umbrage with the 9/11 Truth movement. There are THOSE who are angered with the suggestion that we demand accountability for the 9/11 attacks that were allowed to further the militaristic agenda, and police state tactics, meticulously spelled out by PNAC. There are THOSE who would say that these aims are the result of ‘conspiracy theories’ not to be taken seriously.
But where are THOSE people today? Where are our critics today when it appears that the right-wing of this nation openly and explicitly claim that ‘the only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States?’
Where are all those people today condemning the actions of a multi-billion dollar news media empire REPEATEDLY endorsing and sponsoring the voices of a modern day FIFTH COLUMN – offering comfort and aid to the enemy – by using their privilaged place in the media to spread propganda that openly declares that Osama Bin Laden may be the only chance we have to save america?
They openly depict terrorism as a means towards an end. They openly depict violence as a necessary evil to save america?
They put out a thinly-veiled trumpeted call to all domestic terrorists to ‘save america’ by staging violence against american cities in the name of Al Qaeda?
They DO know that people are listening – right? They DO know they are whipping their audience up into a fear-induced frenzy – right? They DO know that nightly calls for justice for a ‘baby killer’ contributed violent vitriol to a national dialogue that resulted in cold blooded murder – right?
They DO know they have a RESPONSIBILITY to the public to maintain calm and remain responsible in their their broadcasting – right?
“The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.”
While there are THOSE who would call 9/11 Truth activists anti-american for concerning themselves with the facts behind the 9/11 attacks – we now wonder where THOSE people are today when the very spectre of – and a virtual call for – a mass-casualty terrorist attack is broadcast on national TV to millions of reactionary viewers worldwide.
And when and if that attack comes – and the far right revels in their ‘i told you so’ moment of self-fullfilling prophecy – will THOSE people criticize the aims of a Truth Movement once again – and turn their backs on the issue of accountability – yet again?
Those of us who still possess a modicum of sanity hope and pray that we never find out.
