The late American anti-war, pro-Humanity writer Gore Vidal put it succinctly in declaring that “ Unlike most Americans who lie all the time, I hate lying ” see “Mainstream media lying”:
https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammedialying/home ). Two nonprofit US journalism groups, the Center for Public Integrity and the affiliated Fund for Independence in Journalism, estimated that the Bush Administration told 935 lies about Iraq between 9-11 and the invasion of that ancient and now devastated country (see “Study: Bush, aides made 935false statements in run-up to war”, CNN, 23 January 2008:
http://articles.cnn.com/2008-01-23/politics/bush.iraq_1_intelligence-flaws-iraq-and-al-qaeda-study?_s=PM:POLITICS ) . Yet Mainstream media around the World blindly accept the lying Bush “official version of 9-11” despite compelling contrary advice from science, architecture, engineering, aviation, military and intelligence experts that the US did 9-11(see “Experts: US did 9-11”:
https://sites.google.com/site/expertsusdid911/ ). Similarly, Mainstream media have been complicit in massive lying by omission about 11 million preventable American deaths since 9-11 and the deaths of 9 million Muslims from violence or war-imposed deprivation in the post-2001 War on Terror – Western Mainstream media have resolutely ignored the avoidable deaths of some 20 million people linked to the US War on Terror, half of the victims being American.
Decent people around the World must realize the awful extent of this Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist 9-11 deception that has so far killed 21 million fellow human beings but which is resolutely ignored by Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-beholden mainstream media. The neo-liberal argument is that suspension of human rights at home and an endless War on Terror from Libya to Pakistan is required to prevent a repetition of 9-11 (3,000 dead) or a lesser atrocity such as the Madrid, London and Mumbai atrocities (scores to hundreds killed) . Yet the warmongers resolutely lie by omission over 20 million deaths, half American, linked to this same War on Terror.
