National Embarrassments

Yesterday, the "National" Post, a daily fibsheet distributed across Upper and Lower Canada and in selected cities further west, deliberately misled its readers. The rag claimed that Iran's parliament would require religious minotiries to identify themselves through their clothing This claim was false. There was no substance behind it at all. Antonia Zerbisias, in the second link, traces the non-story back to its source - far-right war-mongering PR scoundrels.

We know that the NP was founded by Conrad Black-Crossharbour, but we forget who bought the organ when his Hollinger company collapsed amidst its own fraud the other year. Ah yes, it's the pro-Israeli CanWestGlobalCommsCorp, which freely admits to meddling in the paper's editorial line. As that top investigator J. Motson would say, "Case closed!"

AZ has also picked up another interesting point - Judith Miller Knew About Sept. 11 Before It Happened. Someone will explain why she hasn't followed M Moussaoui and stood trial for her livelihood in a provincial court somewhere in the Chesapeake swamp. AZ adds, "Miller's interview makes it very clear -- as if we didn't already know -- that the White House knew that an Al Qaeda attack was imminent, that its own counter terrorism people were warning of an attack -- and were being ignored."
