Dahr Jamail, author of Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq, discusses the improved security in Baghdad that comes by way of a semi-police state fortified with concrete blast walls, the millions of Iraqi refugees who claim they will never return, the rising discontent among members of Sunni “Awakening” groups, the incredibly high potential for violence in a politically unstable country with armed militias and 50% unemployment and how the numerous U.S. military bases create facts on the ground that make a speedy withdrawal seem unlikely.

  2. Horton is either a shill or a dimwit… He denies that 911 is an inside job and refuses to accept anything aside from the official USG version. is a USG front… Donate at your own risk.

  3. Horton is either a dimwit or a shill for th USG. He continues to be a proponent of the official party line on 9-11. Do not give these people your money… they are playing you.

  4. So when do we get an interview with this guy? S.D. Liddick.
    He sounds like a real charmer.

  5. After the battle of Long Island those of us on Long Island at the time stopped fighting the British…at least openly ( what was the point? ) but we still didn’t want them here and we cheered whenever the rebels in the South grabbed some guerilla victories..
    Yeah, you read that right…An occupier is an occupier..

  6. “Horton is either a dimwit or a shill for the USG.”

    Or maybe he’s neither and your 9/11 speculation doesn’t stand up to any scrutiny and you are wasting time and energy that could be used to challenge the government over things that actually happened.

  7. Some of the speculation was purposely planted to make any questioning of the official story ( itself a lie ) seem preposterous…But some can’t shake that naive faith in our govt and the oligarchy that controls it.
