(RussiaToday) – Israel has refused to permit Noam Chomsky, the linguist and icon of the American left, to enter the occupied West Bank from Jordan. Some argue that Chomsky, an 81-year-old professor emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, could pose a risk to Israel.

Norman did state that he would support a independant 9/11 investigation now in 2010 though.
The truth of 9/11 would expose corruption to a point that people would have to do something about it, the anti war movement is 9/11 truth. The issue is not military, the issue is CORRUPTION Norman. Continue reading

Dear Mr. Kara

It’s unfortunate that you’re not willing to engage in Q&A, however, as the questions are many and, to this day, the answers are very few.

“It is impossible to imagine CBS News, journalism or indeed America without Walter Cronkite,” said Sean McManus, president of CBS News, on the passing on Walter Cronkite. “More than just the best and most trusted anchor in history, he guided America through our crises, tragedies and also our victories and greatest moments.” Continue reading
