writing for the reactionary website ChronWatch, labels Jack Murtha an
"anti-war Vietnam veteran" and a Democrat "of the same political class
that, to this day, refuses to officially recognize the embarrassing
fact that lead hijacker Mohamed Atta was a known threat within this
Of course, even if we buy the official
nine eleven fairy tale, we can not avoid the obvious conclusion Atta
had nothing to do with Iraq or Saddam Hussein. However, it appears
likely he had something to do with the United States military, as the
New York Times revealed in the days following the nine eleven attacks
(and reactionaries such as Adamo never mention such facts because it
does not fit into their reductionist and paranoid world-view populated
by murderous Muslims tasked with the on its face absurd plan to
overthrow the United States and convert Americans to Islam, a sort of
demented fever dream shared by reactionary mental cases).
of the men identified as the hijackers in the attacks on Tuesday have
the same names as alumni of American military schools, the authorities
said today. The men were identified as Mohamed Atta, Abdulaziz al-Omari
and Saeed al-Ghamdi," the New York Times
reported on September 15, 2001. "The Defense Department said Mr. Atta
had gone to the International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base
in Alabama; Mr. al-Omari to the Aerospace Medical School at Brooks Air
Force Base in Texas; and Mr. al-Ghamdi to the Defense Language
Institute at the Presidio in Monterey, Calif."
Murtha, he’s no hippie antiwar protester, as Adamo alludes. "Murtha
shared President Ronald Reagan’s anti-communist views, supporting the
military buildup against the then-Soviet Union along with covert aid to
the Nicaraguan contras," reports the Washington Post.
"He was a strong supporter of the Persian Gulf War in 1991, and today
regards it as a model for international cooperation, both
diplomatically and financially [read bombing nations and killing
thousands of people is a "model for international cooperation"]. He
noted in an Oct. 2 C-SPAN interview that Bush’s father, President
George H.W. Bush, also kept Congress well informed throughout the
conflict. 'President Bush One really did it exactly right,’ Murtha
In other words, Murtha had no problem with the
criminal enterprise of Iran-Contra—pulled off by the same criminals now
in control of the White House and the Pentagon—and supported the
illegal invasion of Iraq (100,000 Iraqi "soldiers" killed and 113,000
civilians slaughtered, according to the Red Crescent Society of
Jordan). Murtha supported the intentional destruction of municipal
water systems, waste material treatment and sewage disposal systems
throughout Iraq. It can be assumed Murtha supported the violation of
the Geneva Conventions and the laws of armed conflict, resulting in war
crimes and crimes against humanity.
Jack Murtha is no
antiwar peacenik. He is simply not infected with the neocon illness of
total war dementia, although he does not cringe at the prospect of
American imperialism and empire building. Adamo would have us believe
Murtha is a liberal—and considering the degree of fascistic reaction
emanating from the Arab-hating and misanthropic neocons and their
supporters, the garden variety hawkishness of Murtha may actually be
considered a form of liberalism.
But never mind. I am more
interested in Christopher Adamo’s comment on "lead hijacker Mohamed
Atta" who was "a known threat within this nation’s borders." In
addition to the New York Times, Newsweek and Knight Ridder reported on
Atta’s connection to the U.S. military. "Knight Ridder’s news account
was more specific. It said Mohamed Atta had attended International
Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. In
addition, Abdulaziz Alomari had attended Aerospace Medical School at
Brooks Air Force base in Texas, they reported, and Saeed Alghamdi had
been to the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, California,"
according to researcher Daniel Hopsicker.
"If true, these reports would have dealt a blow to the consensus
portrait then emerging of the terrorist cadre as puritanical Islamic
fundamentalists…. Indeed, if foreign nationals who would eventually
become terrorist pilots were training at the Pensacola Naval Air
Station, or going through the U.S. Air Forces’ International Officer’s
School at Maxwell Air Force Base, they would most likely have had
connections to Arab governments considered friendly to the United
So important was Mr. Atta the CIA, Able Danger, and the Israeli "art students" followed him around.
not worried about al-Zarqawi showing up on my doorstep, ready to
convert me to Islam or chop off my head like he supposedly chopped off
the head of Nick Berg. Of course, there is no evidence al-Zarqawi even
exists, but then that’s little more than a bothersome detail for people
such as Christopher Adamo.
I am concerned about "terrorists"
trained at the International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base
or the Defense Language Institute and micromanaged by various
intelligence "services," including Israelis who are supposedly
prevented by law from running intel ops in this country.
I guess I’m just a liberal.
