BuzzFlash Mailbag for September 12, 2006


Subject: Re: Vice President Dick Cheney Interview on Meet the Press

I will address only one issue regarding Tim Russert's interview of Vice President Cheney today. Mr. Cheney, again, said (paraphrasing) that "We have not been attacked again since 9/11, so that means we must be doing something right" in protecting the country against terrorism.

Michael Winship: As American as Apple Pie

by Michael Winship

We are a city of incongruities. So I guess I shouldn't have thought it odd when, early Sunday evening, I ran into two London bobbies, in full dress uniform, walking up Manhattan's Seventh Avenue, as if they were patrolling Piccadilly.


Proof positive, you can't fool all the people all the time! "The percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington has risen from almost a third to almost half over the past four years, a CNN poll released Monday found." Hope for our future is on the rise!


Betrayal of the national security of my country is an act of treason.

On August 3, 2005, we honored Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame with a BuzzFlash "Wings of Justice Award."  We noted then:

The ABC 9/11 Fiction and Control of the Political Agenda

Steven Jonas, MD, MPH

Sept. 11, 2006

In an editorial on September 9, 2006, BuzzFlash noted that: "Lost in the uproar over ABC subcontracting 9/11 over to right wing extremists is the smoking gun conclusion of a Republican/Democratic Senate report that says Saddam had no connection to al-Qaeda -- and that, indeed, he went to great lengths to keep them out of Iraq. That means Bush and Cheney are responsible for opening up Iraq to al-Qaeda -- and that they lied and lied again." On the same day, BuzzFlash also observed: "Who Does the Writer/Producer of the Infamous ABC ‘Path to 9/11' Fiction Mini-Series Give His Major Interview to? Radical Wing nut David Horowitz's Publication, That's Who. In it, the Writer/Director Heaps Praise on Bush, Scorns Clinton, Praises the Patriot Act, scurrilously attacks the film ‘Syriana,' and so on."

Disney's Sad Sweatshop History


Last Friday BuzzFlash reported that ABC outsourced millions of dollars from American workers by filming much of The Path to 9/11 abroad for cheaper. Offshoring is nothing new to The Walt Disney Company or its subsidiaries: Disney has a grim history of sweatshops and worker abuse throughout the world.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for September 11, 2006


Subject: We Are Not Safer


Less than two months after President Clinton took the oath of office, The World Trade Center was attacked by a car bomb. Six people were killed. President Clinton took full responsibility and did not blame the previous administration headed by the senior Bush. All the terrorists involved were caught and are currently serving life sentences.

Mickey Mouse Goes to Washington . . . Again


If you saw any of ABC's doc-faux-drama The Path to 9/11 last night, you should be more than convinced that the whole thing was indeed a Rovian propaganda piece to blame Clinton and benefit Bush. While some might find it hard to believe that the Disney-owned company is playing politics, it certainly would not be the first time.
