Harvey Keitel, who stars in ABC?s upcoming 9/11-themed miniseries, appeared on CNN?s ?Showbiz Tonight? to relate his own concerns over the project?s manipulation of history. 

When asked if a work derived from 9/11 held a special obligation to the truth, Keitel responded: ?Absolutely, you cannot cross the line from a conflation of events to a distortion of the event. No. Where we have distorted something we have made a mistake?and that should be corrected.?

While I appreciate Harvey Keitel standing up for truth and honesty in historical reporting, why was he in this trash in the first place? Wasn’t it OBVIOUS that the producer, the director, the screenwriter were ALL hard-core neo-con “Christian”-fundamentalist fascists deliberately preparing propaganda they KNEW was a lie?

I guess Harvey is either a typical dumb actor (and most of them are idiots) or this is how he thinks but he doesn’t want to “Mel Gibson” his career.

Interesting site.  I will add a link from mine.

BTW - I wonder if ABC will add a follow-up mini-series entitled “The Path to Iraq”.

9/11 – An Attack Against Humanity
I read a very interesting note on meetings between Iran, China, and Russia at misneach blog a couple months ago. I wonder why I haven’t heard much about this anywhere else? The strategic value of developing closer relationships between theses countries is clear to see, for anyone who is paying attention.

China’s rapid growth is fueling an insatiable appetite for Oil.

Russia is looking for any market to sell its products and services. Is Iran hiring? Have they posted any want ads for a nuclear scientist?

Both China and Russia are permanent members of the UN Security Council.  Any UN sponsored sanctions against Iran will likely face a veto from one or both of these nations, based upon their own strategic reasons.  What is America to do?  The military option is unrealistic.

Today, America is over extended militarily and out of touch diplomatically. I am most saddened by the reckless disregard for diplomacy, civility, and sportsmanship the Bush Administration has displayed since 9/11/01. They have managed to pull defeat and division from the jaws of victory and cohesion in the real “war on terror.”  Just look at Afghanistan if you doubt this assertion. 

The world mourned with us and for themselves after Sept. 11th. The attack on the World Trade Center was not only an attack upon America. It was an attack against all humanity. Citizens of far too many other countries died on 9/11 in NYC.

The other countries and thousands of families who lost loved ones at “ground zero” are fighting their own personal wars on terror everyday. Their lives have been changed forever. How dare we allow our “public servants” to exploit their sufferings to launch a preemptive war on Iraq, while not bringing Bin Laden to justice?
