Wisconsin Lawmaker wants Lecturer Fired for 9-11 Conspiracy Views

Wisconsin Wire

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A state lawmaker is calling on the University of Wisconsin-Madison to fire a part-time instructor who has spoken out on his beliefs that figures in the U.S. government, not al-Qaida, were behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Kevin Barrett is scheduled to teach a class in the fall in the UW-Madison Department of Languages and Cultures of Asia, UW-Madison Provost Patrick Farrell confirmed in a statement Thursday.

But Farrell said Barrett’s comments on a Milwaukee radio talk show “raised some legitimate concerns about the content and quality of instruction in his planned fall course, ‘Islam: Religion and Culture.'”

During his appearance Wednesday night on Jessica McBride’s show on WTMJ, Barrett disputed most of the widely accepted information about the attacks that brought down the World Trade Center in New York City when airliners were flown into the twin towers.…

FOX Furiously Ridiculing 9/11 – US Government Conspiracy Theories

Reported by Chrish
News Hounds
“We watch FOX so you don’t have to.”

August 7, 2006 – 48 comments

Ever since Scripps Howard released poll findings last week that 36% of Americans believe it is at least somewhat likely that the federal government was involved in or took no action to prevent the attacks of September 11th, FOX news talking heads have been ridiculing and dismissing the possibility. On the other hand, they have yet to cause such a kerfuffle over the equally remarkable poll finding that the number of Americans who believe WMDs were found in Iraq has risen to 50%.…

He may not get the chance.…

If the current regime lies about so much, why shy away from asking the hardest questions about 9/11?

The lies which brought about the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution were a landmark lesson for American anti-imperialists.…
