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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Because the same Iman (9/11 ties) was forbidden to enter Great Britain, if we are to reference Major Hasan.

The great protector, the United States of America, along with the running scared national media only leaves the London based Telegraph.co.uk (most recent) to inform in place of in order to protect and serve the public..plus they share the same related terror issues.

Plus, the BBC (via Jawa Report) interview by Gavin Lee with a member of the Killeen, Texas mosque outside Ft Hood, the Islamic Community Center of Greater Killeen, where Malik Nidal Hasan was currently attending.

Mosque member "Duane" refuses to condemn Hasan, but justifies their murder because "they were troops who were going to Afghanistan and Iraq to kill Muslims".

I was thinking today that not having the terrorism alerts-red yellow etc makes us more complacent which was instituted to build awareness of what is around you. We are being made deaf, dumb and blind to the terror within.

I would like to see a National Security poll that asks the public:
Did you feel safer under President Bush or Do you feel our country is safer under President Obama from terrorist attacks.

As an Aussie told me when abroad "You Americans are just too PC".
