Veteran political analysis Peter Dale Scott critiques the role of
left gatekeepers for their superficial analysis of American politics
which leaves the criminal structure intact.

1. When I hear those two words I just wish I could leap through the screen
and slap the bastard who said them.

Just because someone doesn't believe in your theory does not mean they are part of some conspiracy :rant:

5. I can't watch the video - old computer & very slow dialup - but I very much appreciate P. D. Scott.
I believe his decades-long work of explicating the concepts of "deep politics" and "para-politics" is absolutely essential to the development of any sort of informed analysis regarding the forces at work "behind the curtain" of visible policy decisions.

Therefore, even though I can't watch the video (is there possibly a transcript available anywhere?), I will happily vote to recommend this thread.

6. I'm a warm admirer of Chomsky, and Zinn too, and both are well represented on my bookshelf.
Nevertheless, what Scott has to say makes a lot of sense. While watching this video clip, I went over to Amazon, and put one of his books ("Deep Politics And The Death of JFK") in the shopping basket. Since Chomsky is (like myself) a "Left-libertarian", I don't think he'd object.

7. Peter Dale Scott
is someone I've met on two occasions. An incredible intellect. I know he is currently completing a book on 9/11 to be published, significantly, by the University of California Press. I don't know his working title but I can't wait for it to come out.

Indeed, he is someone that needs to be listened to within the progressive movement. Unlike so many others, he isn't afraid to speak openly about the questions of 9/11 -- and their significance to our current predicament. I agree 100% that THE WAY to break the stranglehold of this criminality currently in control of our government is to expose the 9/11 coverup.

8. Peter's new book. . .
Just emailed Peter and he replied:

Dear (Beam Me Up),

The book is

Peter Dale Scott, The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America (Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 2007).

It is being printed now and should be in bookstores by Septmber, when I present it at Black Oak Books.

You can read more about it (and my other recent appearances) on my website at http://www.peterdalescott,net, or see more about the book on the UC Press website at http://www.ucpress.edu/books/pages/9959.html .

Sincerely,

Peter

9. Just like screen name says
Everyday is 9/11 till the truth is exposed. 9/11 gave Bush and Cheney the power they hold now. It gave them many things especially the missing 2.3 Trillion dollars from the Pentagon on Sept 10, 2001. After 9/11 nobody remembers or dares bring up the missing money.
I don't think I ever heard about that again. They stole that money knowing that 9/11 would erase the "mishap" Ooops. Could that have been a pay off perhaps? It's amazing that this has gone on for so long with all the evidence and still nobody dare accuse them of this. And believe me they WILL do it again.

10. It is so refreshing to see a man dealing in reality and damn the torpedoes
It really doesn't take a great mind to realize that what he is saying is truth. Though many don't even have the required two brain cells to rub together to figure it out and the many that just don't want to figure it out and viscerally resent anyone expounding on the truth and forcing them to look into the mirror to see the face of evil...lies are more comfortable these kinds of people.

13. While I'm always interested in the...
...observations and commentary of Zinn and Chomsky, and have great regard for both men, I am troubled by their seeming lack of interest in getting to the truth of 9-11 and exposing the laughable report produced by the 9-11 Commission for the obvious whitewash cover up that it is.

I'm moved to believe that the lofty positions in academia, no matter who you are, come with the price of working within accepted, understood boundaries that sometimes prohibit exploring/exposing certain truths. I don't know what else would explain Chomsky's puzzling remarks about 9-11.
