MSNBC Questions 9/11 Story

This is a segment that was on Tucker Carlson's show on MSNBC that I watched when it aired.

To me, the only watchable part of his show is when Rachel Maddow is on. Tucker Carlson himself makes sense only about 50% of the time. However, it was encouraging to see the corporate media actually presenting alternatives other than the ridiculous story that the government and news have force-fed the public about the events of September 11th. (The fact that Tucker can't fathom it is irrelevant.)

Questioning What Happened on 9/11

If you have trouble believing that government officials, foreign agents, and elements of the military-industrial complex wouldn't commit a criminal conspiracy against our own people... well, you just need a little historical perpective, that's all.

ABC News: Operation Northwoods
"The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba's then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.
America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: 'We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba,' and, 'casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.'"

Project for a New American Century
A Who's Who of current government hardliners and 'neoconservatives' who's vision of America stinks of fascism and imperialism.

"According to their own document, their stated goals would not be realized “absent some catastrophic catalyzing event –like a new Pearl Harbor”."

(How interesting that such a thing happened... exactly when so many of these 'neo-cons' were roaming the halls of government & military power under George W. Bush in 2001. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.)
