04-21-07 - WE HAVE THE SMOKING GUN! We have known for years that communications between the attacking Israeli jets and their headquarters were intercepted as the aircraft approached our ship. The Israeli pilots were clearly told by their controllers to find and quickly sink "the American ship" which was USS Liberty. Those communications were almost simultaneously translated and broadcast from a US Air Force C130 near the scene to an intelligence site at Crete where they were sent to Washington and to other stations as "Critical Intelligence," the fastest and most secure means available. Known as CRITICs, these reports routinely arrived in the White House, State Department and Pentagon within ten minutes or less.

04-21-07 - "America at a Crossroads" veers to the right One episode, a virtual infomercial for Richard Perle, a leading neoconservative theorist and architect of the Iraq war, is so laughably biased -- and so unbalanced by any film giving equal time to a corresponding perspective on the left -- that it taints the entire series Since when does PBS favor neocons? Since this individual and those like her stepped into the fold. As soon as these people (Israeli lobby) infiltrated the place, the BS starts. PBS was supposed to offer something a little different than the mainstream media. Turns out, it does not. It was a nice idea though. To be fair, what the author of this piece describes on page 3 regarding what SHOULD have been included in this series was in fact included in the series Lawrence of Arabia by PBS. It was a great series. PBS should rerun it sometime so that Americans get the truth as to what really happened to Palestine, and consequently what motivates such hatred of the US (due its support of Israel's colonial project in the region). Knowing the motivation for the attacks on the US does not justify the attacks. But not investigating the causes is like the police not investigating the motives for serious crimes. It has to be done, folks. There are those in this country that do not want you to know why. Here's my message to them.

04-21-07 - Israeli Giuliani groupies to bring votes The thousands of eligible absentee voters in Israel could have a significant impact on who will win the Republican and Democratic nominations. Should not be allowed.
