Investigative reporter, Greg Palast
is reporting on Alternet
about now ex-congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney.
“McKinney implied that the [Bush] Administration knew in advance about September 11 and deliberately held back the information,” said the media. The New York Times said, “Ms. McKinney suggest[ed] that President Bush might have known about the September 11 attacks but did nothing so his supporters could make money in a war.” She was beaten to death, politically, by the fabricated quote in the 2002 Democratic Primary.
But Greg Palast did some investigation, and despite his best efforts, can find no evidence that she said these things. The closest he comes up with is a quote from her saying, “George Bush had no prior knowledge of the plan to attack the World Trade Center on September 11.”
Of course Cynthia McKinney kicked up a bit of a fuss about a few things embarassing to the Bush administration. Read on for the dirt and history.

Palast: My only hope for the future of journalism is one word: the Internet.
This interview has everything! Condemnation of the president (in regard to current events, not just his family, and Nazi money, eugenics, insanity, etc.)
and more importantly, condemnation of the press. We all know that the media strikes down important information, and that the state run BBC reports what our informers pass over silently. This article explains this phenomena, as well as the other member's of the Bin Laden family, why double pullitzer prize winners can't find work in the media, and of course, what we all know,
that the internet promises an unmediated relationship between events and people. What? You don't care? Don't care how credible this guy is? Don't care about the race targeting database used to steal the election? Heard it before? Yeah, me too. Well, don't fret, there was a great link with lots of swearing earlier today. And one with Jackie Chan.
