Submitted by Vivian LeeThe great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has written another blockbuster, this time about the raid on the complex at Abbottabad, Pakistan, that allegedly took out Osama bin Laden, the alleged perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks. His new article for the London Review of Books purports to blow the lid off the fake story conveyed by the Obama White House about the raid of May 1, 2011. Hersh reveals several clear falsehoods inherent in the official story, only to manufacture many of his own.

The bodies of Tod Fletcher and his wife Susan were recovered at Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, California, in an apparent joint suicide.
With few exceptions the news that will shape public discourse is subject to a de facto censorial process of powerful government and corporate elites beyond public accountability. It is here that Sigmund Freud’s notion of repression is especially helpful for assessing the decrepit state of media and public discourse in the United States.

Members of 9/11 Commission last week leveraged the 10th anniversary of their report to announce a dozen recommendations focused primarily on fanning fears of foreign terrorism. The former commissioners urged strong spending on counter-terrorism intelligence and far fewer congressional oversight committees.
News coverage arising from the announcement and related congressional testimony avoided mysteries and ongoing disputes.
James Tracy interviews author, filmmaker, and lifetime surfing enthusiast Allan Weisbecker on the weekly interview program, Checkin’ It Out. The two discuss a variety of topics, including intellectual freedom, the doublethink phenomenon especially peculiar to America’s professional elite, and the curious impact events like the JFK assassination and 9/11 continue to have on public discourse and political life.
Checkin’ It Out is the weekly interview program hosted by James Tracy and produced here at Memory Hole Blog. Each weekend we’ll be joined by notable authors, journalists, filmmakers, and other public figures to discuss their latest projects and activities.

Communications [censored] James Tracy of Memory Hole Blog wonders why the foundation-funded “left” is so touchy about 9/11 truth and other subjects that might displease their paymasters.

Maggie Zhou and I—a molecular biologist and a social psychologist— were challenged to find out what MIT engineers think of the collapse of the World Trade Center’s (WTC) Building 7. Armed with a portable player and a 5-minute “Building 7″ segment of the hour-long DVD “9/11 Mysteries” (2007), we descended on the student center cafeteria and professors’ offices in the Civil & Environmental Engineering department. We were driven by Professor Noam Chomsky’s disdain for “the 911 Truth industry” and their “insane conspiracy theory” which implies that the fall of the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center in the aerial attacks of 2001 might be an “inside job”. He challenged his audience in a recent lecture to go to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and ask the experts. So we did.

Progressive-left icon and public intellectual Noam Chomsky has derided the 9/11 Truth movement and been similarly dismissive of “conspiracy theories” for many years. The famous activist-academic recently remarked how “a lot of people … spend an hour on the internet and think they know a lot of physics” when attempting to fathom the bizarre collapses of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. “It doesn’t work like that.”
