The American Way

I’m sure right, left, and the middle can all agree that truth and justice is the American way. The points made in the movie “Fahrenheit 9/11” need to be challenged, debated, and exposed for the benefit of all:

Present and past close business connections of the Bush family to the bin Ladens and Saudi Arabia’s oil interests (Carlyle Group); Saudi Arabia’s 14 of 19 known terrorists; supporting Saddam Hussein during the Reagan years; flying the bin Ladens out of the U.S. before questioning days after the attack of 9/11; Halliburton deals with Cheney; Florida voting scandal; 9/11 knowledge beforehand; surplus to debt; money wasted; international disfavor; Patriot Act; no weapons of mass destruction.

Many best-selling books (Richard Becker, Al Franken, Michael Moore, Jim Hightower) have mimicked similar “facts” with numerous documentation. A patriot would not tolerate silence of these “facts.” They all should be publicly discussed, proved or disproved in the media. Truth and justice needs to be served.

Let’s take up Michael’s challenge to truth. Come on, Rush and Mike Savage, the truth shall set you free. This is not Republican-bashing. The Democrats are not much better by their voting records. Perhaps it is time for general reform.
