NY Times does it again: More 'Judy Miller' tapdancing [around nuclear trafficking]
Luke Ryland reviews the lastest spin by the NY Times on the nuclear trafficking ring (one of the many things Sibel Edmonds has been gagged from speaking about, but has managed to release significant details of). The Times omits key parties and nations involved, while giving fuel to the Iran war mongers.
This article is a prime example of why Bloggers are invaluable; they expose corruption, spin and lies in corporate media reporting, and find and cover news reported elsewhere in the world by more honest (or less conflicted, on certain issues) media outlets. The New York Times history of promoting fascist propaganda and covering up "elite" corruption far predates their publishing of Judy Miller's WMD lies, and their sitting on the story about the Bush Administration's illegal warrantless wiretapping program through the 2004 election, until they were about to get scooped by James Risen's book, State of War; it goes all the way back to the "Business Plot" coup attempt against FDR- link to mirror of Steve Kangas' review
Some background on the Tinner's and the Swiss government's destruction of evidence; they claim it was so it wouldn't fall into the hands of terrorists, but it was done rather at the request of the CIA/Bush Administration, who didn't want protected people exposed: Sibel Edmonds Case: More Destruction of Evidence re Nuclear Black Market. Luke Ryland's blog is a smorgasbord of reporting on information as it has come to light.
A front page article "In Nuclear Net’s Undoing, a Web of Shadowy Deals" in Monday's New York Times by William Sanger and David Broad details the destruction of evidence by the US government in a case involving the nuclear black market.
The article highlights again that the New York Times continues to engage in 'Judy Miller reporting' by warmongering and acting as a mouthpiece for the government.
In the article, Sanger and Broad (who co-wrote a book, Germs, with Judy Miller):
1) Provide an incomplete and misleading story by coveniently withholding pertinent, established facts.
2) Spin the story towards Iran, and away from other governments, fulfilling the government's propaganda needs again.
3) Carry out no investigation, relying on government spokespeople without checking facts, relying on documents, or agenda-free sources.
