Posted on 11/08/2009 7:06:25 AM PST by george76

The London Telegraph has the bombshell report on Ft. Hood jihadist Nidal Hassan’s ties to the September 11 terrorists.

Question: Why is it that we have to read British papers to get the unvarnished truths about the Ft. Hood Muslim mass murderer?

The only people the MSM (M uslim S ympathizing M edia ) doesn't give the benefit of the doubt to is members of the "right" - conservatives, Republicans etc.

When it's one of "ours" they condemn all of us - from Rush to the Republican dog catcher... The Brits make an effort to be honest - same with Pravada...

Report: Hasan attended same radical mosque as 9/11 hijackers
Hotair ^ | 11/7/2009 | Allahpundit

Posted on Saturday, November 07, 2009 7:53:37 PM by SeekAndFind

And so a personnel file already teeming with red flags gets another giant one. If you’re wondering how a British newspaper managed to track down this information when the U.S. military apparently couldn’t, you’re not alone. There’s no question now that we need congressional hearings into how the army missed the warning signs on Hasan, especially given the suspicions as to why they might have looked the other way. Chop chop, Messrs. Boehner and Cantor.

Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother’s funeral was held there in May that year.

The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

The above is an excerpt. For the full oped:

Keep digging and you will find out that Nidal Hassan was an advisor to Barack Obama.

You're trying to make that sould like he was a direct advisor. Sorry, not true. He worked on a team that created a report for Homeland Security. This was part of the Bush/nobama transition. I really hate to defend this murdering Islamic terrorist, but he was not, "an advisor to Barack Obama."

Source:

In 2008 The George Washington University Homeland Security Institute (HSPI) initiated a transition task force to help craft homeland security policies during Obama’s transition period. In May of 2009 HSPI finished its report titled, “Thinking Anew-Security Priorities for the Next Administration.” One of the members of this Obama transition project was none other than the Muslim murderer Nidal Hassan.

Nidal is listed in Appendix C, Page 29 of the HSPI report as having served as a “Task Force Event Participant,” in his position with the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine.

Hi

Good to see the Telegraph in action.

The American media is still asleep or worse.

Hassan was a member of Obama’s transition team.

Looks like the transition team was convened in April 2008 so I don't think this is a true statement.

Every country censors the news in its own country. They don't care about news in foreign countries as much. Google “Operation Mockingbird” for censorship in the United States.

A snippet from Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Mockingbird

“In 1948, Frank Wisner was appointed director of the Office of Special Projects (OSP). Soon afterwards OSP was renamed the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC). This became the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency. Wisner was told to create an organization that concentrated on “propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.”[3]

Later that year Wisner established Mockingbird, a program to influence the domestic and foreign media. Wisner recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post to run the project within the industry. According to Deborah Davis in Katharine the Great; “By the early 1950s, Wisner ‘owned’ respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles.”[4]

In 1951, Allen W. Dulles persuaded Cord Meyer to join the CIA. However, there is evidence that he was recruited several years earlier and had been spying on the liberal organizations he had been a member of in the later 1940s.[5] According to Deborah Davis, Meyer became Mockingbird's “principal operative”.[6]

In 1977, Rolling Stone alleged that one of the most important journalists under the control of Operation Mockingbird was Joseph Alsop, whose articles appeared in over 300 different newspapers. Other journalists alleged by Rolling Stone Magazine to have been willing to promote the views of the CIA included Stewart Alsop (New York Herald Tribune), Ben Bradlee (Newsweek), James Reston (New York Times), Charles Douglas Jackson (Time Magazine), Walter Pincus (Washington Post), William C. Baggs (The Miami News), Herb Gold (The Miami News) and Charles Bartlett (Chattanooga Times).[7] According to Nina Burleigh (A Very Private Woman), these journalists sometimes wrote articles that were commissioned by Frank Wisner. The CIA also provided them with classified information to help them with their work.[8]

After 1953, the network was overseen by Allen W. Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. By this time Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. These organizations were run by people with well-known right-wing views such as William Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O’Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr., (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor).[7]”

Here's a bit more...

According to Alex Constantine (Mockingbird: The Subversion Of The Free Press By The CIA), in the 1950s, “some 3,000 salaried and contract CIA employees were eventually engaged in propaganda efforts”. Wisner was also able to restrict newspapers from reporting about certain events. For example, the CIA plots to overthrow the governments of Iran (See: Operation Ajax) and Guatemala (See: Operation PBSUCCESS).[10]

Thomas Braden, head of the International Organizations Division (IOD), played an important role in Operation Mockingbird. Many years later he revealed his role in these events:

“If the director of CIA wanted to extend a present, say, to someone in Europe—a Labour leader—suppose he just thought, This man can use fifty thousand dollars, he's working well and doing a good job - he could hand it to him and never have to account to anybody... There was simply no limit to the money it could spend and no limit to the people it could hire and no limit to the activities it could decide were necessary to conduct the war—the secret war.... It was a multinational. Maybe it was one of the first. Journalists were a target, labor unions a particular target—that was one of the activities in which the communists spent the most money.”[11]

Six major groups control 90% of the media in the US. To see the interrelationships download the chart showing the groups and companies under their control.

http://www.mediachannel.org/ownership/moguls-printable-150dpi.pdf

Control the head of the top six groups and you control the news. Here's a good quote.

“You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month.” – CIA operative discussing with Philip Graham, editor Washington Post, on the availability and prices of journalists willing to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories. “Katherine The Great,” by Deborah Davis

That is why more then ever, talkradio and the internet will become the major news medias of the 21st century.

For the same reason that we had to watch Mexican or other foreign TV to see the horrendous images during 911.

Big Brother (yes, he has been here for a long time) wanted to shelter our tender sensitivities. Children need to be protected, you know. And we are the children.

Perhaps the need to satisfy the pathological need to protect a killer religion might have also played a role.

But like it or not, I plan to speak out against Mass Murdering Muslims the rest of my life. From Jail is necessary.

Over 80% of the mosques in the US are funded by Wahabbi fundamentalists.

Wrong.

100% of the mosques in the U.S. have been funded by Saudi Arabia (With our oil dollars) through various channels, including the charity of that Irish Citizen, Sheikh Khalid Bin Mahfouz, who bought up every copy of this book:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A copy has been found and, there is a country in the Western Hemisphere where this book can be "cloned," for a little as $8.00

I expect to see copies circulating widely soon.

Of course, he really shouted “Allahu Akbar”. Even Fox is PC at times, translating from the Arabic to English to make that part of this story sound less foreign, or less Islamic.

And even then, Fox can't get it right!

Allahu Akbar = allah is Greater!

A distinction without a difference.

Homeland security is not an integral part of the executive branch?

That makes it more intimate a connection than advisor.

Let's get real here!
Where does the buck stop?

Nice try though.
