Leahy lets a big sleeping dog lie
Sen. Patrick Leahy, a liberal Democrat, told a Vermont newspaper that he has no intention of urging a re-opening of the 9/11 investigation. Ditto, say Vermont's other federal lawmakers. Hooray! says Norman Chomsky. At least Leahy won't be draining enormous energy away from the liberal-left agenda!
The Burlington Free Press question came as it became apparent that Burlington voters will be asked whether they think their federal lawmakers should demand a new probe.
Leahy said that, though it's understandable that some would come up with their own theories of the events of 9/11, he's satisfied with the Kean commission investigation.
Leahy and politicos like him won't budge because they think that, in the main, the news media are under control on this matter. These politicians won't defy the Powers That Be. Nor do they respect the one-third or more of their constituents who believe -- based on some pretty good, old-fashioned American investigative reporting -- that the 9/11 report whitewashed a story of treason most foul.
However, 9/11 is one sleeping dog that won't be allowed to keep lying. We will keep pushing.
Sure it may be that Rep. Ron Paul's presidential bid is quixotic, but at least that Texas politician speaks candidly about a continuing 9/11 cover-up. These days, the people who deserve the most respect are the ones most likely to be cast out.
Another exception is British MP Michael Meacher, who raised a hue and cry for daring to say that Blair's war on Iraq was a consequence of a U.S. covert op to make 9/11 happen. He's now getting "the treatment" for defying the Big Lie.
BTW, I have come up with what I think are some pretty reliable numbers for the World Trade Center fall times and -- guess what? -- the government's story is found deficient.
