This video was originally posted in the Politics forum and the thread was closed. I feel this is important 9/11 news aside from politics and hope it will be allowed to remain.

From Infowars:


MSNBC host Keith Olbermann perhaps went further than ever before last night in his special comment about the 9/11 anniversary, slamming the Bush administration for their “criminal neglect” in allowing the attacks to occur and identifying the continued exploitation of 9/11 “sociological pornography” as the only reason that Bush hasn’t been impeached.

Olbermann said that the anniversary of the September 11 attacks had been turned into a brand name - “9/11™” and that such propaganda has “sustained a President that long ago should have been dismissed or impeached.”

Olbermann continued, identifying 9/11 has the only thing that has kept “(Bush) and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office,” while they escaped blame for the “malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur.”



After 7 years this single comment is as close as we have gotten to anything resembling the truth about 9/11 on the mainstream media.

I applaud Keith Olbermann. He is obviously upset over being snubbed at the RNC. And he is obviously pissed enough to lay it all on the table! This is what we have been hoping for folks, honest journalism and straight in their faces!

Bravo!!

P.S. Starred and Flagged. Good stuff!

You mean he is upset over being snubbed and losing his election job so he is talking out of his ass. Should have stuck to SportsCenter instead of becoming the liberal O'Reilly.

No, I actually mean he is laying it out as it is. If you think he is talking out his ass, maybe you should quote an instance from his rant?

From what I saw, I would have to quote the whole thing then.

That lunatic is really one of the more disgusting "personalities" (if a bowel movement can have a personality) that exists in this world. He subscribes to the "shock" theory of journalism - the wilder and more "out there" he can be, the more of the radical fringe he can get to worship him, which is all he wants in the first place.

Clearly, the Bush administration have utilised fear campaigns throughout their terms in office. Whether or not it was planned, 911 became a useful tool to republicans to create an enemy to build solidarity in an imaginary "war on terror".

The Foundation of every Governments Power



By keeping the population in a state of artificially heightened apprehension, the government-cum-media prepares the ground for planting specific measures of taxation, regulation, surveillance, reporting, and other invasions of the people’s wealth, privacy, and freedoms. Left alone for a while, relieved of this ceaseless bombardment of warnings, people would soon come to understand that hardly any of the announced threats has any substance and that they can manage their own affairs quite well without the security-related regimentation and tax-extortion the government seeks to justify.


By keeping emotional, knee-jerk reactions out of the debate, looking objectively at the current political climate, it remains clear that the current US administration maintains a heightened level of fear and paranoia within their speeches and publications.

Bush, McCain, et al have not offered any positive visions of America, no opportunities for healing, growth as a nation nor as individuals. Gone are the days when political candidates espoused ideas of unity, positive visions of prosperous futures for all citizens and respectful, diplomatic plans for global peace.

Instead, we remain blanketed by constant warnings that the enemy is still among us, and we should be very afraid.

It appears the thread has been unlocked and restored. Thank you ATS staff!!

Yes it has! And thus my topic has been deleted. Bravo to Mods for reopening this topic!

But, even if this is not my topic...

DO NOT ATTACK THE MESSENGER, ATTACK THE MEESAGE IF YOU DISAGREE WITH IT! AND PLEASE PROVIDE PROOF THAT WHAT HE SAID WAS WRONG IF YOU BELIEVE HE IS WRONG!
This includes you RR, who blatantly slung mud and violated the rules. If you disagree with what he says, then debate his message, not the messenger. How is what he said wrong? Rudy all but changed his SS Number to 911-01-2001

And Mods, if someone comes in and slings mud, delete their post, not the topic. Please? I'll even add two shots of fudge to your sundae!

Well I think I have given two responses three flags and numerous stars to this video and I am sure by now you have all read what I think but I will do it one more time just for fun.


Olbermann is a person with opinion in which he has the opportunity to share to the public in his program. This video expresses a very important issue that affects all who have been effected by the atrocities of 911. He points out the use of political manipulation of the public in the use of 911 fear tactics. I also see this as disturbing and I am very glad we have people like him who have the opportunity to point this out in a very public way. I also give this video another Bravo!

The first five minutes are terrific.


But the more than three minutes of ridiculous bloviating about McCain and Bin Laden at the end were enough to make me shake my head.

:shk:

Both extremes in this country are mad.


Keith has lost it.

One of the media few with the courage to speak out. I don't always agree with what he says, but certainly do here!

Yeah, I agree with him. He is quite right.

I guess he's trying to wake people up. I hope his succeeds even though I am sure a few red necks get annoyed with it.

Keith Olbermann and truth are oxymorons on the level of Civil War...Military Intelligence....

The man is an idiot that was selected to try to be (as another poster stated) the liberal Bill O'Reilly...however, he has yet to rise above the level of moron. I agree...he should have stuck with sports.

Thanks. That's basically what I said in the post that ATS wouldn't allow me to post here. (Or was it a different alphabet soup mix?) His final rant before resigning or being axed?


Edit: Or was it because I brought up the 1993 WTC bombing and Oklahoma City bombing? Or was it because I suggested we're all naive and being manipulated by powers beyond our understanding?
