He has appeared on ABC News, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN, BBC, Al-Jezeera, MSNBC and Press TV. Madsen has written the introduction to the book Forbidden Truth: U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy, Saudi Arabia and the Failed Search for bin Laden. His articles have appeared on a number of news websites and magazines including Global Research, Pacific Free Press, Online Journal, Counter Punch, The American Conservative, Tehran Times and In These Times.

He has also worked for the NSA National Security Agency, the Naval Data Automation Command, Department of State, RCA Corporation, and Computer Sciences Corporation.

Madsen joined me in an exclusive interview and answered my questions about the 9/11 attacks, Israel’s dominance over the U.S. media and the prospect of Iran-U.S. relations.

Kourosh Ziabari: There are many unanswered questions regarding the catastrophic attacks of September 11, 2001 about which you’ve written extensively. Several investigative journalists believe that the attacks were an inside job planned by the FBI and perpetrated by Israel or elements connected to Mossad. Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga has categorically expressed that the 9/11 attacks were a joint operation of FBI and Mossad. General Hamid Gul, the former head of Pakistan’s Intelligence Service, believes that Israel was behind the attacks, too. What’s your estimation of these theories, their veracity and reliability? Is it demonstrable that the 9/11 attacks were a false flag operation or an inside job?

Wayne Madsen: I don’t believe the attacks were planned by the FBI.  I believe they were an operation carried out by Mossad, Saudi intelligence, with which Mossad has had, and continues to have, a close relationship since the days of the Safari Club of western and Middle East intelligence services combining their operations, and elements of the CIA. Cossiga, Gul, parliament members in Germany, Britain, and Japan, the late British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, and others all understood this was an inside job that also involved a handful of people at the top of the Bush administration, including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, A.B.Krongard of the CIA, and Rudolph Giuliani, as well.

KZ: In 2003, you stated that you uncovered documents which reveal a relationship between the Saudi government and the S-11 hijackers. It’s a complicated issue; you know, from one hand, Saudi Arabia is a strategic ally of the United States in the Persian Gulf region. From the other hand, the United States attributed the attacks to Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, which we already know rose to prominence with the indirect and direct support of the United States. At another side of the story, we find the close relationship between the House of Saud and the Bin Laden Family which is a major stakeholder in the Saudi economics. How is it possible to solve this complexity? Can we conclude that the old friends became new enemies and betrayed each other?

WM: The Sauds and the Bin Ladens were close allies of the Bush family, which had everything to gain in the 9-11 attacks. The only way to discover the Saudi role is for a Saudi whistleblower to come forward; however, that may only happen after the inevitable overthrow of the Saudi monarchy. As many Saudis know, the Sauds are not only in lockstep with the Americans and Israelis but they are descendant from a Jewish merchant family that originally lived in what is now Kuwait. Wahhabism, in fact, serves the interests of Israel’s Zionist Judaism, both emphasize extremism and sectarianism that keeps the Middle East in constant turmoil and extends the rule of the Wahhabi Sauds and Zionists.

KZ: You know that the Iraq of Saddam Hussein era was a close ally of the United States in 1980s. The United States gave the green light to Saddam to attack Iran, and backed him strategically, militarily and financially. Twenty years later, the equations changed altogether. The close ally became the villain and came under fire. The man whom the United States had equipped for waging a war against Iran was arrested and executed by the same United States. What happened that changed everything in this way?

WM: This is part of the U.S. policy. Use leaders it creates and then dispose of them. It has happened with Ngo Dinh Diem in South Vietnam, Manuel Noriega in Panama, Trujillo in Dominican Republic, Savimbi in Angola, and the lost goes on.

KZ: Having all of what you’ve written regarding the 9/11 attacks in mind, there still remains a number of ambiguities concerning what happened during the week leading to September 11. One of these incidences was the unexpected declaration of martial law by John Ellis Bush, the Governor of Florida in the state before 9/11. We also know that the Israeli ZIM Shipping Company pulled out its headquarters from the World Trade Center’s north tower just days before September 11. The media also divulged that 4000 Israeli employees of the WTC didn’t attend their work on September 11. Are these revelations enough to conclude that Israel was behind the 9/11 attacks?

WM: The entire reaction of the U.S. defense and early warning systems on 9/11 indicates involvement by high-level officials, including Jeb Bush and his brother Marvin Bush, who had financial interests in the firm that had the security contracts for the World Trade Center and Dulles International Airport. The 4000 Jews who didn’t go to work was something tossed out by the Israeli disinformation machine to point to as an anti-Jewish “conspiracy theory.” There were no 4000 Israelis or Jews working at the WTC who did not show up for work. This is psychological warfare operation.

KZ: Iran and the G5+1, representing five permanent members of the UNSC and Germany, are about to sit at a table for a new round of negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. Are these negotiations going to yield constructive results? What I want to ask you is that is Iran’s uranium enrichment program the mere concern of the international community? Will they bring to an end their financial sanctions and military threats should Iran halt its enrichment program?

WM: No, they want the ending of the nuclear program all together. We now know that Yukia Amano was installed as head of IAEA by the U.S. and its allies to act on Washington’s and Israel’s behalf. This is a complete change from the past head of IAEA, ElBaradei, who the neo-cons and Zionists hated.

KZ: In one of your articles, you’ve elaborately discussed the authorization of a covert economic war against the government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez by the U.S. President Barack Obama. It had been previously reported that the ex-President Bush administration also pursued the conduction of a set of clandestine intelligence operations in Iran to destabilize the national government. You mentioned that the United States carries out its operations through subservient NGOs who work to meet the interests of Washington in a target country. How is it possible for the United States to organize such destabilizing operations? What are the objectives which the United States follows through these efforts?

WM: Most of the NGO operations are carried out by George Soros’s groups and others funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Even the Peace Corps is misused, which is against the policy of President Kennedy who established the group to do good. In Iran, Soros and USAID and National Endowment for Democracy funded groups aim to cause problems with the minorities: Kurds, Ahwazis, Baluchis, Azeris, Turkmen, and others.

KZ: In the recent Wikileaks documents, which were released a few days ago, it has been alleged that a number of Persian Gulf Arab countries had furtively asked the U.S. government to launch a military strike against Iran so as to avert the conceived threat of a nuclear Iran. How much credible are these documents and how do they affect the U.S. foreign relations? In what ways do these allegations benefit Israel?

WM: Most of these comments were relayed by the U.S. diplomats who have political agendas. It should be noted that some of these meetings where these comments were made were attended and reported on by American Jewish diplomats with Zionist leanings, for example, Michael Gfoeller, the US charge d’affaires in Riyadh, also Gen. David Petraeus’s political aide, who attended meetings with King Abdullah.

KZ: For the final question, I want to ask you about the unconditional support which the United States offers to Israel. What has made the United States the staunchest ally of Tel Aviv? Why does the White House degrade itself to the level of the representative of Israel in the international organizations and the United Nations Security Council? Many Middle East experts believe that it is the influence of Zionist lobby over the economy of the United States which has created this immutable connection between Tel Aviv and Washington. What’s your idea? How do you estimate the influence of Zionist lobby over the U.S. government?

WM: The Israeli Lobby owns the Congress, media, Hollywood, Wall Street, both political parties, and the White House. This kind of talk will get people fired by this lobby, as we have seen recently with White House correspondent, Helen Thomas, and CNN anchor, Rick Sanchez. However, many Americans are growing tired of the arrogance of the Israel Lobby and their bigoted attitudes toward anyone who challenges their influence-peddling and their ridiculous insistence that Israel must be supported because of some ancient fairy tales involving some tribes who wandered the deserts of the Middle East and saw and heard non-existent things because of sun stroke, drinking bad water, and smoking local hallucinogenic plants.

    Cossiga never said anything of the sort. Whatever one’s suspicions may be, it does not help to rest an argument upon misquotes. What happened was that Cossiga gave an interview where he was mocking positions which he attributed to the Italian Left-wing. Among these positions he listed that he ascribed to the Leftists he made fun of was the assertion that 911 was a CIA/Mossad operation. Cossiga himself never made any such claim. He merely cited it as an example of a position which he found ridiculous. It was similar to if someone gave an interview where they were scoffing at the positions taken by Alex Jones and as an example of ridiculous Alex Jones can be the speaker mentioned “the Saudis own Hollywood!” Then someone comes along and starts quoting the speaker as having claimed this without noting that you were just making fun of Alex Jones. That’s all that happened with this Cossiga interview where he mentioned 911, CIA and Mossad. It was wrongly cited by people with an axe to grind.

  3. shabnam said on December 7th, 2010 at 2:53pm #

    According to American Free Press:

    Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, has told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies. In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera:

    “All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe…know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

    Cossiga was elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of the country in 1985, and he remained until 1992.

    Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio. This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and ’80s. Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they termed “false flag” operations—terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

    > According to American Free Press:

    They’re just spinning sensationalistic rumors off of a poor rendition into English from Italian. The American Free Press does such games very often and you should always seek an original source before you believe anything which comes from them.

    > In what translates awkwardly into English,

    The key word there is “awkwardly.” This is a very misleading usage of a phrase taken out of context.

    > “All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe…know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

    If you go back and read the original source it is clear Cossiga is not summarizing a position of his own in that passage. He is describing an opinion which he attributes to the Italian Left-wing which he is making fun of. Again, it’s very similar to the case where someone making fun of Alex Jones might hypothetically quote Jones as claiming that “the Saudis own Hollywood.” Someone else then comes along and quotes the person who was making fun of Alex Jones in a way which gives the misimpression that the person was agreeing with Alex Jones. That is not an honest use of quotations by the American Free Press.

    How about Andreas Von Buelow, Germany’s former federal Minister of Defense, or the equivalent of our Secretary of Defense?

  7. PatrickSMcNally said on December 7th, 2010 at 6:11pm #

    > Would you please post a link for the ORIGINAL source?

    The original article was in Italian:

    corriere.it/politica/07_novembre_30/osama_berlusconi_cossiga_27f4ccee-9f55-11dc-8807-0003ba99c53b.shtml

    A somewhat amateur translation is given here:

    sott.net/articles/show/144872-Former-Italian-President-9-11-Carried-Out-By-Mossad-And-CIA-

    From this translation it’s clear that Cossiga is not asserting anything special but just the sense of the original is affected by translation. Notice the phrases he uses:

    “According to what I was told, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow the most powerful daily newspaper chain of our country will deliver an exceptional scoop”

    “The ‘trap’ was mounted, according to the above newspaper chain, to provoke a wave of solidarity with Berlusconi”

    “all democratic elements of America and Europe, with those of the Italian center-left party at the forefront, now well know that the disastrous attack was planned and carried out by the American CIA and the Mossad with the help of the Zionist world order”

    “no word of solidarity came to Silvio Berlusconi, who is the creator of that clever forgery, neither from the Quirinale, nor from Palazzo Chigi or any center-left representatives.”

    Notice that nowhere in these statements does Cossiga assert that “I, in my capacity as an intelligence officer, know that the CIA and Mossad were behind 911.” Instead he merely accuses a newspaper chain of running a story and the “center-left” of being antagonistic to Berlusconi. Unless someone has a better translation of this piece from the original Italian, I’d have to say that this does not at all read as a confirmation of anything about 911 by an Italian intelligence officer. It reads like a statement from an Italian conservative which makes fun of the center-left without implying anything valid about conspiracy theories.

    “all democratic elements of America and Europe, with those of the Italian center-left party at the forefront, now well know that the disastrous attack was planned and carried out by the American CIA and the Mossad with the help of the Zionist world order”

    That’s pretty damn clear, especially when one includes the rest, a simple google trans of the whole section:

    “‘Trap’ – ‘The’ trap ‘was mounted, according to the aforementioned chain of the press, to raise a wave of solidarity with Berlusconi, the moment that it is in trouble partly because of another journalistic scoop of the same chain on plots between RAI and Mediaset, “continues Senator for life. «Da ambienti vicini a Palazzo Chigi, centro nevralgico di direzione dell’intelligence italiana, si fa notare che la non autenticità del video è testimoniata dal fatto che Osama Bin Laden in esso ‘confessa’ che Al Qaeda sarebbe stato l’autore dell’attentato dell’11 settembre alle due torri in New York, mentre tutti gli ambienti democratici d’America e d’Europa, con in prima linea quelli del centrosinistra italiano, sanno ormai bene che il disastroso attentato è stato pianificato e realizzato dalla Cia americana e dal Mossad con l’aiuto del mondo sionista per mettere sotto accusa i Paesi arabi e per indurre le potenze occidentali ad intervenire sia in Iraq sia in Afghanistan. “From neighboring environments in Palazzo Chigi, nerve center of Italian intelligence direction, it is noted that the authenticity of the video is testified by the fact that Osama Bin Laden in it ‘confesses’ that Al Qaeda was the author of the 11 September at two towers in New York, while all the democratic circles of America and Europe, with those at the forefront of the Italian center, now know well that the disastrous attack was planned and carried out by the American CIA and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan. Per questo – conclude Cossiga – nessuna parola di solidarietà è giunta a Silvio Berlusconi, che sarebbe l’ideatore della geniale falsificazione, né dal Quirinale, né da Palazzo Chigi né da esponenti del centrosinistra!». For this – concludes Cossiga – no word of solidarity arrived to Silvio Berlusconi, who is the creator of the brilliant falsification, neither from the Quirinale, nor from Palazzo Chigi, nor from representatives of the center.”

    Cossiga makes it very clear he agrees with the view that mossad and the cia were behind the 9/11 false flag and psn is misrepresenting Cossiga and the article here:

    “Notice that nowhere in these statements does Cossiga assert that “I, in my capacity as an intelligence officer, know that the CIA and Mossad were behind 911.” Instead he merely accuses a newspaper chain of running a story and the “center-left” of being antagonistic to Berlusconi.”

    Post a link, cherry pick quotes from it and then misrepresent that it means something different. Naturally, that something different always, always coincides with a view that either protects ziofascism, inc., or at the very least is favourable to zionist interests.

    These things never change much, do they.

    ” Unless someone has a better translation of this piece from the original Italian”
    The translation is ok. And the text (both the Italian original and the English translation) says what it says, anybody capable of English or/and Italian understands its meaning.
    “It reads like a statement from an Italian conservative which makes fun of the center-left without implying anything valid about conspiracy theories”
    This is of course PatrickSMcNally’s reading of the text and it’s quite understandable to come from this “debunker of conspiracy theories” – I call him a “hasbara “historian””, as his “explanations/hasbaras” are congruent with his vision of history, and everything he doesn’t like he declares to be just a – “rightwing” – conspiracy. I haven’t read/heard yet of something like a denial by Cossiga of the meaning of that text, so I’d say that readings of that text as “a statement from an Italian conservative which makes fun of the center-left without implying anything valid about conspiracy theories” are the real conspiracy theories spread by the real conspiracy theorists, ie people like PatrickSMcNally & Co. (eg [http://conspiracydebunkers.blogspot.com/2008/02/alex-jones-and-francesco-cossiga-911.html])…

    ‘Who runs Hollywood? C’mon
    I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.’

    Why does Catguyoo keep asking the question?. It is easy enough to google the question and get answers. Marlon Brando for one said so in an interview with Larry King. Quoted in a comment by HP on dissidentvoice.org/2008/06/you-don%E2%80%99t-mess-with-the-racism/

    This was also written here in 2009.

    Have Big Media and Big Government joined forces to advance an ethnic agenda? It’s looking that way. Writing in the LA times (12/19/08) columnist Joel Stein adds humor and realism to the stunning reality of ethnic monopoly in Big Media/Entertainment. He writes:

    How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.

    Stein clears the air. And he’s even funny about it. But the impact of ethnic activism in media and government must be assessed, and critically—without the threat of reprisal. Stein expresses bemused sympathy for Hollywood’s ethnic outsiders (plain old white folks) explaining:

    The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.

    But concentrated ethnic power with a global agenda can become very un-funny indeed. Just ask the Heretical Two. Or the people of Gaza. When wealth, talent, religion and government merge, there can be many, many causalities.

    Defendant Whittle, in the meantime, warns about federal legislation here in the US that poses a danger to traditional American liberties. “[House] bill HR-1955”, he notes, “is ready to begin pushing the US down the same slope as the UK and European Union”. Though this bill finally stalled in the Senate, it received overwhelmingly support by both political parties in the House.

    The bill, HR-1955, was named the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act” by its liberal (and Jewish) sponsor, Jane Harman (D-CA). It contained numerous provisions criminalizing, among other things, “hate speech”, which is liberal code for selectively targeting fiery political expression. Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) is expected to sponsor a similar bill later this year. Other bills now under consideration in the House (HR-256 and HR-262) also seek to broaden and enhance ‘hate speech’ penalties.

    But as America’s Zionized conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran push forward, larger problems surely loom. Nevertheless, eliminating politically incorrect speech remains high on the agenda of both political parties. With help from advisors linked to the ADL, lawmakers are now drafting legislation designed to circumvent Free Speech guarantees enumerated in the Bill of Rights.

    Special measures for special people.

    Government to pay for security guards at Jewish schools

    The government is to pick up the cost of providing security guards at Jewish faith schools in England amid concerns about anti-semitic threats to pupils.

    At the moment, parents of children at 39 state-funded Jewish schools in England pay £1.6m towards the cost of enhanced measures like security guards.

    Ministers have decided to foot the bill to ensure children and staff “feel safe” and can concentrate on studying.

    They say they will look at the case for similar help for other faith schools.
    At the moment, all state schools get funding to provide basic security measures such as perimeter fences, gates and CCTV. However, ministers have decided it is unreasonable for parents at Jewish schools to continue paying for extra measures, such as security personnel, given the particular threats the institutions face.

    Security threat “Faith schools make a fantastic contribution to our education system and none more so than Jewish faith schools,” Education Secretary Michael Gove said.

    “Children and staff at these schools should feel safe at school and able to learn in an environment free from any anti-semitic or racist threats.”

    The schools will receive £650,000 in funds straight away and up to £2m a year based on assessment of their needs. The funds will be administered by the Community Security Trust, which helps protect Jewish communities and synagogues and draw attention to anti-semitic violence.

    Its research suggests there were about 920 anti-semitic incidents in 2009, the highest total since 1984, and 124 violent attacks – 41% up on the year before.

    The Trust said not all schools, the bulk of which are located in London, would receive the same amount of funding and resources would be allocated “efficiently and according to need”.

    “The Trust is grateful to the secretary of state for recognising the importance of security provision at state-funded Jewish schools and for the time he and his department have spent assessing the problem and constructing a viable solution,” its chief executive Richard Benson said.
    The Department for Education said other faith schools – including Islamic schools – should make representations if they felt they were at particular risk and deserved similar support.

    PS In the record for2009 on the CST website, it says:
    ‘The unprecedented rise in the number of antisemitic incidents in the UK in 2009 occurred largely because of the extreme reactions to the trigger event of the Gaza conflict. In 2006, Israel’s war against Hezbollah in Lebanon saw the largest previous such ‘spike’ in antisemitic incidents, when 134 incidents were recorded in the UK during the 34 days of fighting’

    Cause and effect then.

    Note the use of the word ‘conflict’ to describe the massacre of the people in Gaza.

    The CST is a charity but nobody knows how it is funded as it has been given special exemption from making public reports to the Charity Commission.

    House Approves Major Increase in Israeli Military Aid

    Jason Ditz On December 10, 2010 @ 6:13 p .m.

    The House of Representatives earlier this week approved a significant increase in the level of military aid to Israel, pushing the level to $3 billion in flat military aid, with an additional $205 million set aside for a short range rocket system.

    Both of the increases were already planned as part of a memorandum of understanding between the United States and Israel, but were formally approved as part of the 212-206 vote in the House on Wednesday.

    Rep. Steve Rothman (D – NJ) said the increase in aid to Israel “sends a strong message to both our enemies and allies,” but also comes at a time when the US has only just abandoned the Israeli peace process over its inability to convince Israel to agree to even a short term freeze.

    The failure of the peace talks has led a number of Western nations to react negatively to Israel’s settlement expansions, but it appears that, for the US, the peace process was never more than a side story and remains irrelevant to the question of heavily arming the nation.

    Had you heard that Foxman is still persecuting Helen Thomas? Alison Weir sent this just now.

    Dear Friends,

    Veteran journalist Helen Thomas is under attack again. The ADL* took away her job; now it wants to take away her honorary degrees. Let’s turn the tables on them!

    ADL Director Abe Foxman recently called the 90-year old former senior White House correspondent a “vulgar anti-Semite,” referred to her comments as “crude,” and called on schools and professional organizations that have honored Thomas over the years to rescind those honors.

    Shortly afterward Thomas’s alma mater, Wayne State University, announced that it will no longer give out the “Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in the Media Award.” Others are expected to follow suit.

    The attacks on Thomas began in June when a rabbi posted a Youtube video of Thomas taken without her knowledge, followed by sensationalized and inaccurate media reports pushed by former Bush White House PR director Ari Fleischer, an Israel partisan unhappy with Thomas’s tough questions.

    The media assault was eagerly taken up by journalists happy to kick a reporter whose integrity and competence surpassed their own once she was down and easy prey. Many, perhaps most, were Israel partisans.

    We think it’s important to stand by Helen Thomas. We also think this is an opportunity to reach Americans whose curiosity is now piqued by all the controversy.

    Therefore, we have created a hand-out for people (see below) to distribute on campuses and in communities around the country. This brochure explains the validity of Thomas’s videotaped remarks and gives the powerful context about Palestine omitted by mainstream media accounts – the transformative facts that the ADL does not want Americans to know.

    Several years ago If Americans Knew received a death threat. Instead of intimidating us, this caused us to work even harder and become ever more effective.

    We can now all do the same with Helen Thomas. We can show the ADL that rather than destroying her and intimidating others, their attacks have provided a platform whereby even more Americans are learning the facts!

    Because a generous, committed donor is subsidizing this project, we are making these available at a cost anyone can afford – just a nickel apiece! We are providing them in batches of 10, and hope that most people will order 50 or above!

    The idea is to give these out as widely as possible – on campuses, at events, in libraries and cafes. Give them to colleagues and neighbors, at book discussion groups and World Affairs Councils.

    Together, we can stand by Helen Thomas and give Americans the truth.

    Best wishes,

    The If Americans Knew Team

    Let me rephrase ziogatto’s question:
    “How many anti-Iraq war (or anti-Iran war for that matter) movies have been made?”
    A better question would be:
    How many Hollywood movies show Israel realistically as what it is: an illegal, unlawful, immoral, fascist, nazi state of thieves, robbers, vandalizers, torturers, murderers, genociders and consummate liars?…

    “Hurt locker” is a good example of how Jewish zionist owned and operated hollywood produces propaganda in support of ziofascist/fascist war crimes. “The deer hunter” was their previous incarnation of the rubbish pertaining to the Vietnam war. All the ziofascist/fascist goebbelsian propaganda is left intact in these pathetic war crime promotions, the story almost entirely revolves around the theme of:

    “But look how our soldiers have suffered, sending them in unprepared to these foreign hellholes” where the people are portrayed as lesser life forms to be killed, dominated and protected from their own ideas.

    How was the Hurt Locker “pro-Iraq war”?

  39. mary said on December 19th, 2010 at 4:41pm #

    Well said Hayate. John Pilger said in his article of July this year, entitled The Charge of the Media Brigade –

    ‘The psychopathic is applauded across popular, corporate culture, from the TV death watch of a man choosing a firing squad over lethal injection to the Oscar winning Hurt Locker and a new acclaimed war documentary Restrepo. Directors of both films deny and dignify the violence of invasion as “apolitical”. And yet behind the cartoon facade is serious purpose. The US is engaged militarily in 75 countries. There are some 900 US military bases across the world, many at the gateways to the sources of fossil fuels.’

    catguy00 you posed the rhetorical question and got an answer … The Hurt Locker. This movie was lauded by Zio-wood with an Academy Award for best director. Below are clips from various reviews that you can find on the Internet …

    Much is made of G.I. hardships in “The Hurt Locker.” Their days are a
    kinetic nightmare of uncertainty. Iraqis they interact with are all
    referred to as “hadjis,” whose next cell phone call might detonate a
    bomb. Drunkenness, video games, and writhing in self-pity fill the
    non-working hours. The only thing more grinding and disturbing than
    service in Iraq is life at home upon return. Spouses just don’t
    understand. After a trip to a grocery store, Staff Sergeant James finds
    he cannot wait to volunteer for another tour.

    From another review …

    I would only add a couple of my own complaints. In one scene the American bomb defusing expert, one Sergeant James, scours an abandoned bomb factory, where he discovers a dead Iraqi boy who has been booby-trapped. In keeping with the sensationalist approach of director Kathryn Bigelow, James uses his knife to surgically remove the bomb. To add to the melodrama, the boy is assumed to be a street kid that Sergeant James has befriended, a DVD peddler who calls himself Beckham after the soccer superstar.

    Now there have been few reports of booby-trapped corpses in Iraq, but those have exclusively involved occupation forces, either military or civilian like truck drivers. The idea that Sunni insurgents would defile the corpse of a Muslim, even if it belonged to a Shi’ite is unbelievable. As deeply religious rebels, they were and are obviously constrained by their beliefs. The Muslim religion dictates a rapid burial and not the use of a dead believer’s body for a weapon. Suicide bombing, of course, is an entirely different matter that while not exactly sanctioned by the religion is not in open defiance of its strictures, at least as interpreted by its Imams, which is all that matters in the final analysis.

    And from yet another review ..

    The Hurt Locker, despite claims about its “apolitical” or “non-partisan” character, proves in its own unsavory fashion to be a pro-war and pro-imperialist film. Far from offering a compassionate view of inner-city African-American life in America, Precious wallows in social backwardness, which it blames on the oppressed themselves. Quentin Tarantino’s repulsive Inglourious Basterds postures as an “anti-Nazi” film, but offers its own brand of porno-sadism, which has more than a whiff of fascism about it.

    Do your research categuy00 before making rhetorical demands

    So you print unsourced negative reviews of the m0vie to back up your claim that the movie is pro-Iraq war? Even though none of those reviews state that it is a pro-Iraq war movie!

    As the kids these days say that is an epic fail.

  44. Deadbeat said on December 20th, 2010 at 10:41pm #

    Your premise categuy00 is that there was NO movie that was pro-Iraq war. The fact is that I produced three reviews that contradicts your premise. You can do your own research to find the reviews like I did. It’s not hard and not my job to do so.
