  1. If Ron Paul is your guest tomorrow take the opportunity to 1. ask him what he knows about Sibel Edmonds, and 2. press him to do what he can to give more exposure to this story.

  2. Beware of HR 2194. It calls for a blockade and that´s virtually a declaration of war.

  3. The Brad Blog has been doing an excellent job of covering this whole story.

    The MSM meanwhile has got its collective head in the sand. As usual if the story involves Israel, it is off limits. The US relation with Israel is corrupting America to the point of collapse.

  4. Damn straight. Anything that's critical of America's "51st state" is off limits. Congress–except for Representative Ron Paul and, perhaps, a few others–is "Israeli-occupied territory."

    Sibel Edmonds makes grave allegations.. Why did the government muzzle her? Afraid of something? . . .

  5. [...] Joe Lauria who wrote a series on the Edmonds case for the London Times in 2008 were interviewed on radio (you can hear it at the link) by Scott Horton. They discuss the corruption and the working [...]

  6. One would think allegations of trading nuclear secrets, rampant corruption, spying, and blackmail would make for a hot news story. One would be wrong. Not a peep from the mainstream media. Or should we call it Pravda?

  7. Ask Ron Paul about Sibel Edmonds and this

  8. [...] Anti-War's Scott Horton interviews Giraldi and Joe Lauria, co-author of the January 2008 three-part front page Sunday Times of London bombshell series on Edmonds, which was entirely ignored in the U.S. (Read 'em all here, here and here.). Scott's audio interview with the two gents is now posted here. [...]

  9. Is Israel our 51st state or are we its biggest settlement?

  10. If the corporate media and USG don't touch this, why not get some other country–Iran or Venezuela come to mind–to bankroll the "proper investigation" called for by Giraldi and Lauria since it seems that MONEY is the only factor in keeping any investigation from moving forward?

  11. Nice to see 911 interest piqued. Hopefully other credible names associated with 911 will come up on the Anti-war radar like Indira Singh, Steven Jones, Michael Springerman, Richard Gage to mention a few.

  12. Use this email list to contact dozens (scores?) of MSM talking heads all at once

  13. It's not that the "MSM" has its "head in the sand" or is "cowardly", "complacent", "corporate" etc., etc., etc.; rather, the "MSM" is an enemy weapons system. It's simply an agent of the government of Israel and nothing more.

  14. um, Pravda covers it….

  15. "an inside job kind of way of looking at 9-11 isn't really my kind of thing"

    Maybe you should make evidence "your kind of thing" and proceed from there.

  16. [...] Listen… [...]

  18. If you guys are so concerned with ending/preventing U.S. wars, how about you invite someone on from NYCCAN, the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now. They've collected 80,000 signatures from NYC residents to put a referendum on the November ballot for a real, independent investigation into 9-11 WITH SUBPOENA POWER. Their ballot proposal names several independent citizens as investigation members, so there's no way it would be a whitewash.

    They need media support for their cause, however. Watch this video:

    then go to their website:

  20. I agree with leftlib . Please do as he asks, Scott.

  21. And now that we know the 9/11 Commission's Official Report is almost entirely untrue…

  25. Yeah Glenn 911 was a lihop, with the mihop nano thermite that made sure the WTC and escpecially WTC 7 fell. Yeah and the pentagon was hit with a hellfire missile fired from a predator. Where's the aircraft debris on the pentagon lawn?

  30. [...] For those who have not yet overdosed on the Sibel Edmonds saga, here is a link to an interview I gave yesterday on antiwar radio with Scott Horton and Joe Lauria.  Joe Lauria was co-author of the three articles on Edmonds that appeared last year in The Sunday Times of London.  Horton moderated.  I become a little emotional towards the end but rumors that I called for hanging the scoundrels from the yardarm are not correct.  Link:  [...]

  37. Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
