John Bolton

Hijacked truth?

By: KEITH PHUCAS, Times Herald Staff


While the 9/11 Commission Report inquiry has its share of critics, Jonathan
Gold’s misgivings about the official findings go far beyond skepticism. In fact,
the 33-year-old Plymouth Meeting resident is convinced the report is covering
up Bush administration complicity in the deadly terrorist attacks.

Gold’s unorthodox view has caused many jaws to drop and heads to shake. When

what he called a growing body of “evidence” that the government orchestrated
the attacks as a pretext for the global war on terror.…

Washington’s High-powered Terrorist Supporters

By Glenn Greenwald

We now have an extraordinary situation that reveals the impunity with which political elites commit the most egregious crimes, as well as the special privileges to which they explicitly believe they — and they alone — are entitled. That a large bipartisan cast of Washington officials got caught being paid substantial sums of money by an Iranian dissident group that is legally designated by the U.S. Government as a Terrorist organization, and then meeting with and advocating on behalf of that Terrorist group, is very significant for several reasons.…
