This denial and cherry picking of historical events presents quite a problem when discussing Al-Qa'ida's history on a forum such as ATS, how can we
even start a discussion when one side of the debate is effectively denying history.
Lastly I would also like to remind everyone what it says right at the bottom of this article.
It never fails to amaze me that members on ATS seem to think that PressTV is somehow a reliable source, how can you possibly presume to deny ignorance
when your information is coming from a news agency run by the Iranian government who will spout any anti-western propaganda regardless of what the

In these times, there is no such thing as a reliable source unless you saw something with your own eyes. I don't believe anything I read or see or
hear from anyone. Or I should say that I don't take it as absolute fact. I'll take note of what is said in the media but I'll decide for myself how
much credibility I give it. If it comes through a wire or some kind of broadcast, I will bear in mind the fact that I am hearing and seeing what the
person who sent it chose to present to me. They have had the ability to censor reality for a long time. It's not magic.
I've learned to trust my nose. I've often been burned in my life for not being suspicious enough of people and their motives. I've learned that if
something smells the slightest bit wrong, you should trust your instincts. They usually won't be far off. They might not be completely accurate as far
as the particulars of any given thing but they are there for one simple reason. To sound the alarm and trigger your conscious mind to be on the
lookout for danger. Your nose doesn't have to know exactly what it smells. If something stinks, you can bet something's rotten somewhere.
Every single time I've ever found myself in a bad situation, there were warning signs I ignored because they were so subtle and could be easily
explained away as just about anything else.
