9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes
How did the US Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim?

Robert Scheer | Israel's Dependency on the Drug of Militarism
"Those who mindlessly support Israel, right or wrong, from President Bush on through the cheerleaders in Congress and the media, betray the security of the Jewish state.
