E-bay billionaire Pierre Omidyar wants to start a new News outlet. He is prepared to spend $ 250 million which as budgets go is quite spectacular. the two people he wants to run this News outlet are non other than Glen Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill. Both have earned their stripes as courageous intrepid journalist bringing information to a wider public about Black water and the NSA pantie sniffers (great name Hattip Bomber).
What is not so great about this is that once again the people chosen to run this enterprise are two people who have proven over the years that they will not even entertain the idea that 9/11 was scientifically impossible let alone give air to hearing the many many people who do proviing themselves to be effective gatekeepers whether they are paid to do so or not. Just imagine what $ 250 million would do for the 9/11 truth movement!
Here is what both Glen Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill are rejecting in order to keep the existing paradigm intact. $ 250 million from a big donor tells me that will be continued no matter what the cost.
I am a big fan of Glenn Greenwald.
Greenwald – a former constitutional lawyer – regularly destroys the “official” narratives about war, torture, spying, anthrax and other topics. I have worked tirelessly and written hundreds of articles on these issues myself, and I regularly quote Glenn.
I have seen Greenwald time and again refute false claims, ad hominem attacks and illogical reasoning. I know that Glenn can ignore the straw men and red herrings, keep his “eyes on the prize” of truth, and get to the heart of the matter.
Given the way that Mr. Greenwald has shredded the anthrax investigation, I know that he is not afraid to speak truth to power and to courageously challenge false narratives being pushed by the government and the mainstream media.
Given the manner in which Mr. Greenwald regularly quotes high-level whistleblowers, and his brilliant criticism of the unlawful persecution of Julian Assange and Bradley Manning, I am confident that he values whistleblowers.
Starting there, Glenn might be interested in learning that Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and the Senator who was instrumental in making those documents public (Mike Gravel) are both skeptical of the official 9/11 narrative.
For example, Ellsberg says that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers“. (Here’s some of what that whistleblower says.) He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11.
And Ellsberg said that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that “very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been”, that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of those in office, and that there’s enough evidence to justify a new, “hard-hitting” investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath (see this and this).
Similarly, Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski – the primary insider blowing the whistle on the Pentagon’s “Office of Special Plans” (the unit responsible for “stovepiping” false intelligence regarding Iraq’s wmds to the White House) – questions 9/11, and writes:
I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11 story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American.
Many other well-known whistleblowers also challenge the official 9/11 narrative.
