Behold The Pale White Lie. Why Conspiracy Theories Are Patriotic (Indypendent)

Nicholas Powers | “Have you heard about the Jews? Four thousand of them called in sick the morning of 9/11. Did you
hear about the blasts inside the towers? Planes didn’t destroy the Towers; the CIA stuck explosives inside and detonated them. A janitor heard bombs go off. Did you ever wonder why we didn’t see plane wreckage at the Pentagon? There was no plane. An ex-military guy said a missile hit it. C’mon, do you really think a bunch of Arabs
with box cutters could’ve pulled all that off?” more...  2 Comments

Katarina - When were Calls Made?

GF | Key questions that need to be answered:

Were calls made to Bush Administration or FEMA regarding the seriousness of the coming storm situation on Saturday or Sunday from local authorities in Gulf Coast area/N.O.? What was the response? Were there any instructions made by any 'officials' to at least be on-call for a massive evacuation/rescue effort, on Sunday? Either at a state level, local or federal?

The Potential of the Gulf Coast Crisis: Points for Discussion and Intervention

a handful of St. Louis' unwanted children o | We wrote this text because we felt the level of discussion regarding the aftermath of hurricane Katrina needs to move beyond the rhetoric of cheering or condemning looters, cheering or condemning the authorities, or simply crying for the victims. "Oh my god, I can't believe this is happening," or "I told you so," or "People are dying!" just send us talking in circles. We want the U.S. (and possibly the world) to launch into the unknown- the total breakdown of the social order- and then continue pushing for a self-organized society. more...  0 Comments

'It reminds me of Baghdad in the worst of times'

Guardian | A man walked past the bodies dragging a pallet loaded with big bottles of ginger ale, some plates and a frying pan. To the rest of America watching the tragedy unfold on their televisions, he was one of the looters, denounced by President Bush.

But to the people inside the convention centre, he was one of a band of heroes keeping them alive. "The people who were going into the stores would give us water and food, said Edna Harris, Henry Carr's aunt. "There would be ladies with babies and they had no milk, and these guys would break in and bring them milk." more...  0 Comments
