This is a good read from Alternet, but that's not all. The video provides some insight into the mind of Chomsky (what he says) and the people who are reporting on him (Amy Goodman and her team). All I know is that the music is downright weird. The rest is for you guys to argue about or what ever floats your boat.

P.S. For the record, I think Palestine has been the victim of systematic and repeated oppression. The U.S. better start praying! We got A LOT of bad things we gotta deal with if we hope to carry on with any semblance of peace. We don't value things which are so precious and that's gonna hurt when it's gone.

*I love it when you froth*

Makes me want to write a song called "All of my former heroes are CIA agents."
Didn't hear the music you were referring to.
Really is a shame Chomsky had to live through 911 and have his legacy destroyed by his complicity of silence. Goodman too. Shame, shame.

Please do write that song. And what do you mean his legacy destroyed?

Well I, for one, had a lot of respect for Chomsky and his anti war efforts since Vietnam. Perhaps I was naive, but I think his stance (or non-stance or outright refusal to address 911) has shown his true colors to a lot of people. Sure, many will still blindly follow the great Noam, but many have had to rethink their sacred cows. I think this is healthy of course. But I think it is clear to many now that perhaps he is a disinfo agent of some sort, the most pernicious kind. Amy Goodman as well. Mainly through omission and what they refuse to or are not permitted to address or speak of. Just my thoughts, would love to hear other's. I find "the limited hangout operation" a fascinating topic.

frankly I find his relative silence post- 9/11 as "laying low",

there was a serious case rabble rousing in those days, mostly for neo-con agenda.
Keep in mind it's a period of anti-intellectualist rhetoric from the right-wing, which could easily be channeled against him as "anti-american-leftist-terrorist-loving-pinko-socialist-intellectual-elitist" or something to that effect.

Going out and blaming the US government for direct involvement, or for allowing it to happen, or for provoking it, could have some really unpleasant consequences. Think about how MSNBC(which wasn't the consensus-left bastion it is today) gave Bill Maher the boot after he said something offensive.
