Saddam, Bin Laden, and Climate Censorship
I don’t dip into Alternet as often as I should. But I did today, and I found the juxtaposition of two stories very interesting:
1. The FBI agent in charge of interrogating Saddam Hussein for seven months says that not only was there no link between Saddam and Al Qaida, but Saddam saw Bin Laden as a dangerous and destablizing force.
2. Months after the scandal first broke (or is it years), government honchos are still interfering with scientists who try to speak out on climate change.
These two stories share a pattern: a White House administration that sees truth as an inconvenient obstacle, but one it can easily climb over. See my post earlier today about the 935 documented lies on just one issue, in just two years.
