Did everyone forget that Steve Jobs is on the Board at Disney
now....

Since Pixar and Disney merged earlier this year, Jobs has supposedly had more to say with what is going on at Disney...

Perhaps if all the IPod users and Mac lovers would convey their discontent to Mr. Jobs about the 9/11 "Drama", it might do some good...

2. Jobs Owns 7% of Disney
Jobs is the single largest Disney shareholder. He's the person in the single-best position to stop this garbage from being aired. The fact that he has not stopped it yet is troubling.

I already made one change of purchase because of this - I was going to purchase an iPod for my wife, I purchased another brand instead.

3. But look who else is on the Disney board...
...

--Disney owns ABC. Disney's 2nd largest shareholder (Euro Disney) is the Saudi Royal Family, long time cronies of the Bush Crime Family. (http://www.bupipedream.com/012704/wire/w2.htm )

--Since 2000, there have been several changes to Disney's board of directors. One is Aylwin B. Lewis, who also sits on the board of Halliburton, Dickhead Cheney's war-for-profit company. (http://corporate.disney.go.com/corporate/bios/aylwin_le... )update: As of 2006, Lewis is no longer on Halliburton's board.

--The other Disney board director is John Bryson, a director of The Boeing Company, another war-for-profit US contractor ($100B) currently under federal criminal investigation ala Halliburton. Even more interesting, he is the Chairman of the Board and President/CEO of Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison, an electric utility, since 1990. Bryson wrote the deregulation legislation which gave Enron the greenlight to rob Californians of billions during the artificially created Enron-induced California energy crisis. (http://corporate.disney.go.com/corporate/bios/john_brys... )

12. Disney director Bryson is also...
...a director for the Council on Foreign Relations (a neo-con think tank) and on the board of H.F. Ahmanson & Co. (Ahmanson is the Christian Reconstructionist/Dominionist who bankrolled Diebold and ES&S and The Discovery Institute (intelligent design propaganda))
