Newsweek Has Different Cover for Home Edition

Hound Dog has long contended that the news media in the United States is subject to US government control to an unknown extent. What is really in play here is unknown: coercion, intimidation, voluntary censorship, whatever. The link below shows another clue supporting Hound Dog’s contention that the mainstream news media deliberately controls what news the American people see, rather than simply reporting all news on an impartial basis, which should be the standard for true journalism.

Here we have Newsweek announcing to the world on the covers of the current international issues that we are “Losing Afghanistan,” while the domestic issue is completely innocuous. Amazing! Could this be so that the truth about the situation in Afghanistan would not be on American newsstands and delivered to our homes, contradicting the rosy picture the Bush/Karzai mutual love fest painted at their press conference of today?

Check out the international Newsweek covers here. See cover for the USA edition, hidden down on the left.

There has to be an official explanation for this.

Airport Shakedown vs. Reality - Do the Math

There are about six million (6,000,000) illegal border crossers coming into the United States every year. On a non-leap year there are about 525,600 minutes in a year (365 * 24 * 60). This means for every single minute in the year about 11.4 illegal aliens have entered the United States.

So...while the extra 20 minutes of humiliating screening at the airport is taking place, about 228 illegals have entered the country.

Just for the sake of discussion, any of these could be an al-Qaeda operative, capable at least of taking a shit in the rinse water for, say, spinach. Doesn’t the spinach crisis strike you as being quite peculiar? How come an exact cause has not yet been identified? Why just spinach? The bigger question is this: if al-Qaeda was behind the spinach based e-coli epidemic, would Homeland Security actually admit this? I seem to recall one of the recent “Cry Wolf” warnings was that our food supply is in danger.

Well, maybe it is.

Anyway, Hound Dog finds it interesting that after the horrible magnificence and extreme complexity of the 9/11 hijackings, the best al-Qaeda can come up with since is Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, an idiot that had trouble lighting a match.

Is Hound Dog the only one that thinks the entire situation really smells bad? Has logic taken a holiday? Perhaps the airport screening has another purpose beyond the obvious? How come we cannot really believe anything we hear anymore?

From Mexico, to Grandma’s Underwear

Could it be this simple? Are the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s and the Bush Administration’s refusals to enforce our Federal laws on illegal aliens and close down our borders, actions that at least eighty percent of legal American citizens are in favor of, part of plan to keep Mexico stable, and supply cheap labor at below minimum wages to American businesses? After all, the total amount of money sent back to Mexico by illegal Mexican aliens exceeds the income from its national oil business. Right now, Mexico has to import cheap labor to fill out its own labor force, so at present there are not large numbers of unemployed workers causing trouble south of the border.

On the situation four years ago, Senator John McCain, in a letter dated February 10, 2004, said, “Every year, millions of people enter this country legally, in a monitored and controlled manner. However an increasing number of people risk their lives to cross our borders illegally. According to the U.S. Border Patrol apprehension statistics, it is estimated that almost four million people crossed our borders illegally in 2002.”

Read letter.

Hound Dog thinks the most recent figure is six million illegal border crossers, any of whom could be drug smugglers or terrorists.

Are we really supposed to think that al-Qaeda operatives cannot simply walk over an unguarded border? After all, they walk everywhere in one of the most inhospitable places on the planet, the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Mexico to the USA is a stroll in the park, compared to that.

Al-Qaeda’s goal is to spread terror and cause economic damage to the United States. They don’t have to smuggle in weapons and explosives. The Washington DC snipers pretty much cleared the streets for weeks, and caused multi-millions of dollars in damages in the Maryland – Washington DC corridor a few years ago.

Why do we only hear about high-tech, elaborate, highly coordinated schemes involving airplanes, when real low-tech, low cost operations would work just as well?

Hound Dog thinks looking through grandma’s underwear prior to boarding an airplane is a total waste of manpower.

FBI: “No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”

Hound Dog did notice that on Osama bin Laden's FBI wanted poster, he is not wanted for the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Cleaning up the crime scene, as discussed yesterday, is looking more significant. Here is an article discussing the FBI position in detail.

FBI says no hard evidence

Apparently only the news media has indicted bin Laden. Edward R. Murrow, where are you now that we need you?

World Trade Center CSI…Not!

A few short hours after the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the mainstream news media quoted unidentified government sources as saying that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks.

Sadly, we all bought this story and in our minds the Arab world became our enemy. Since then, our subsequent actions have managed to piss off 1.5 billion Moslems. Yes folks, that is a headcount of one billion five hundred million (1,500,000,000) actual and potential enemies, approximately five times the legal population of the United States.

Let’s get this straight. There were no prior warnings that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks, yet almost immediately afterwards we identified the head perpetrator?! Case closed – crime solved! Wow, huh?

This must be why the crime scene was cleaned up as soon as possible, without any forensic investigation at all. Also, investigators were barred, with a few exceptions, from examining the evidence at Staten Island where the debris from the WTC was stockpiled prior to disposal, supposedly because it was too dangerous. Odd, because the airborne version of the debris at ground zero was pronounced safe to breath while the site was being cleaned up as rapidly as possible. [Of course we now know some workers from the WTC site are suffering from catastrophic lung and intestinal disorders – another story mostly unreported]. A good portion of the steel in the debris was shipped overseas in short order to make new steel.

Lets see what the mastermind had to say about his crime. In his post 9/11 interview with Pakistani reporters, Osama bin Laden said, “I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appears to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation. ... I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. ... I had no knowledge of these attacks.”

Of course, you might say, he denies it because he is guilty!! If you did, Hound Dog is quite disappointed with you, as faulty logic causes more whines than usual. When has Osama bin Laden and/or al-Qaeda ever not taken the credit for their actions? That is the whole point, to spread terror, yet the biggest action of all was denied.

Now you are going to mention the bin Laden that is in the grainy, out of focus, black & white confession clip where he brags and gloats about how his attacks on 9/11 far exceeded his expectations. This is the fifty-pound overweight, Rolex watch and gold ring-wearing bin Laden – “Fatty” bin Laden. The real Osama was well over six feet tall, scrawny, on dialysis, and a Moslem fundamentalist, besides, a group who do not believe in wearing jewelry for show. Fatty bin Laden is also right handed. According to the FBI wanted poster, and multiple other references, the real Osama is left-handed!

All protests from the Moslem world that the subsequent Osama bin Ladens are fakes, are discounted by our mainstream media, if they bother to report this at all. After all, who can trust anything our 1,500,000,000 new enemies have to say? Apparently, after the B&W fiasco, the fakers decided to stick with audio-only clips, and that’s all we have had since that can actually be properly dated.

Perhaps the ones that keep claiming the audio clips are authentic should be under investigation? This would be those on both sides of the fence, from Aljazeera to whoever is doing voice authentications in Washington.

A hunting we will go!

Hound Dog says, when you have questions like, “How does Osama bin Laden get kidney dialysis while hiding in a cave in the tribal areas of Pakistan, where running water and interior plumbing are but a distant memory for him?” go with that thought. Another might be, "When was the last time a crime scene was completely cleaned up, and the evidence destroyed, before anybody was even indicted?"

Update on the War on Drugs

In 2004, opium cultivation thrives under US occupation in Afghanistan. “With 131,000 hectares dedicated to opium farming, this year Afghanistan has established a double record -- the highest drug cultivation in the country’s history, and the largest in the world.” Check United Nations report here.
