The phone was fully charged, and yet … Opps! During a radio interview on Sept. 6, Ray’s cellphone went mysteriously dead after ten minutes, precisely at minute 16:44, a second after he questioned whether Robert Mueller deserves the sainthood bestowed on him in Establishment media. The radio studio could find no technical reason to account for why the line dropped abruptly immediately after Ray words that Mueller’s “reputation for honesty does not withstand close scrutiny.”
(Ray’s interview segment runs from minute 6:05 to its premature end at 16:44.)
“What is the FBI’s evidence with respect to a connection between al-Qaeda and Iraq? Polls show that Americans are completely confused about who was responsible for the suicidal attacks on 9-11 with many blaming Iraq. And it is clear that this impression has been fostered by many in the Administration. … If the FBI does have independent data verifying such a connection, it would seem such information should be shared, at least internally within the FBI.”
Ray is hardly the the only one to label some of the “evidence” used to “justify” war on Iraq as “non-existent.” In fact, “non-existent” is one of the adjectives the Senate Intelligence Committee chair used on June 5, 2008, when he announced the bipartisan findiings of the committee’s five-year investigation into pre-Iraq-war intelligence:
“In making the case for war, the Administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when in reality it was unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent. As a result, the American people were led to believe that the threat from Iraq was much greater than actually existed.”
The Senate’s findings were published ten years ago and got little play in corporate media. Those with little or no memory of the Senate investigation may wish to click on the link and skim through its main conclusions, as briefly stated in the press release.
