Glenn Greenwald, former constitutional litigator, renowned blogger and author of A Tragic Legacy discusses John McCain’s so-called “misstatement” in trying to foist the neocon talking point that Iran backs al Qaeda in Iraq against U.S. interests there, the major media’s refusal to call him out for it since they love him so very much, the fact that McCain would still have been at least wrong even if he had simply blamed Iran for training “extremists” of any description besides that of the U.S. supported Iraqi government itself, and the recent victory against immunity for the telecoms who conspired with the government to break the law and wiretap Americans without warrants.

  1. Virtually every discussion or article I see on the media’s biased reporting almost always misses this important link. Both McCain and Lieberman are huge Israel supporters and share Israel’s and the US’ goal to control the MidEast and expand the present aggression into Iran. The media, who has shown time and time again that they are pro-Israel (just look at the coverage of Gaza), and owned by military contractors, certainly share this view as well. So, why wouldn’t they give McCain a pass, every time?

  2. According to Dr. Bob Bowman, former chief of US Air Force Missile Defense, missile defense is the missing link to a First Strike. Dr. Bob Bowman thinks missiles in Poland will be very useful to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles after a First Strike. Therefore the Russians will implement Launch On Warning. The terrible consequences of a mistake will be caused by the stupid Pentagon. Dr. Bob Bowman agrees that the Pentagon (McCain?) will get disarming first-strike capability by 2011/12. Acc. to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-www.plrc.org-the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy subs simultaneously. The main danger is Russian Launch On Warning because of US First-Strike Capability. Please read Keir Lieber and Dryl Press, “The Rice of UD Nuclear Primacy”, 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. “The US aims to achieve a first-strike capability”, said Weinberger. By 2011/12 the Pentagon will have achieved that the Russians have no choice but Launch On Warning. “Bloody fools in the Pentagon”, as Brigadier Harbottle stated.

  3. All true..Lieberman is an agent of a foreign govt..just like Feith, Perle, Abrams, Wolfowitz, Kristrol, Podhoretz and the other architects of our Middle Eastern foreign policy..a policy designed to serve Talmudic racial supremacists, military contractors, Anglo-American oil co.’s that have finally got the Iraqis so destroyed and desperate that they are almost now willing to sign over control of their oil production and distribution…The Iraqis are getting screwed which is why most Iraqis would “kiss the feet” of Saddam were he able to come back and kick the occupiers out..( many Iraqis have said so )…
