Questioning 9/11 ... With Caution

Since the terrorist attacks on the U.S., many prominent journalists have repeatedly been asked the same questions, as The Independent’s Robert Fisk describes in this piece: “Why, if you believe you’re a free journalist, don’t you report what you really know about 9/11?  ...  Why don’t you reveal the secrets behind 9/11?”  Here, Fisk carefully poses some questions of his own—after addressing a familiar figure he calls the “raver.”

FBI Foils JFK Bomb Plot

Four men, including a former cabinet minister from Guyana, have been arrested for plotting to bomb the jet fuel pipeline at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport.
