" I recently posted two letters to The Australian in response to a 9/11 editorial and several feature articles.lol - that's hysterical. and sad.
My Letter 1: was NOT published and included this:
Senator Bob Graham was Head of the Joint Congressional 911 Inquiry from Feb - Dec 2002 and was interviewed on the PBS Lehrer Hour on 12 Dec 2002:
"I was surprised at the evidence that there were foreign governments involved in facilitating the activities of at least some of the terrorists in the United States.... I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing -- although that was part of it -- by a sovereign foreign government ... It will become public at some point when it's turned over to the archives, but that's 20 or 30 years from now."
The quote is true, but in conflict with The Australian's editorial position attributing blame for 9/11 exclusively to bin Laden.
My Letter 2: WAS published and included this:
Congress inquired into bin Laden and had this to say: "All the evidence before us supports the claim that al-Qaeda's attacks on America were solely the work of Osama bin Laden and the terrorists of 9/11 whose ideas represent a continuing threat to our democratic way of life and all our values."
The quote is completely false (made up by me) but it was published immediately. It supports The Australian's editorial position attributing blame for 9/11 exclusively to bin Laden.
The Australian has passed the "truthiness" test with flying colors. This is what we are up against."
