We'll never see this kind of journalism on television -- Salon's "Forbidden thoughts about 9/11".
Sure it's disturbing, but it's more real than the velveeta that has to play on TV. The 9/11 documentary, though, was amazing (despite the velveeta piano refrain playing behind the incredible shots of the WTC falling).
Also on TV last night, Bill Clinton on Letterman. In vintage Clinton style, he laid out the two issues to consider before going to war with Iraq: 1. We'll dust them in 1 week (the sanctions did work) but when Saddam feels like the game is up, he will use the biological weapons we were talking about, and give them to terrorists who will use them and 2. the precedent our unilateral action will set -- we may come to regret this in the future. But then again, what the fuck does the current administration care about the future? As the government that runs like a corporation, they want to see quarterly profits. Can't think about energy conservation, can't turn off the big oil engine because it produces steady profits.
Oh well, looks like we're going to bomb Iraq.Posted by tmonkey at September 12, 2002 11:07 AM
