Cheney Shooting – A staged “accident”?
The major story just as the Cheney shooting broke was the fact that the latest NeoCon war on terror justification evidence was being declared as total lies by expert after expert.
…documented how the children had been throwing stones at the soldiers and were then chased down by scores of British troops, rounded up and beaten to a pulp. Outrage ensued and the front pages were uniform in their cries for action on the matter. Suddenly CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
On the 13th, a United Nations inquiry called for the immediate closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention centre and the prosecution of officers and politicians “up to the highest level” who are accused of torturing detainees.
The report demanded that the Bush administration ensure that all allegations of torture are investigated by US criminal courts, and that “all perpetrators up to the highest level of military and political command are brought to justice”.
This was kept off the front pages as CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
Perhaps the most telling story we have been distracted from is this one. ON THE VERY SAME DAY as the Cheney shot Whittington story, CBS’s 60 Minutes aired a report in which US expert Steward Bowen, who is auditing funds financing Iraq reconstruction programs announced that around $8.8 million had simply vanished.
Wide spread war profiteering is going on, the main culprit being Halliburton who have have collected half of all the money awarded to contractors in Iraq, and, according to Department of Defense auditors, have over-billed taxpayers more than a billion dollars.
Of course, we know that Dick Cheney is deeply involved with Halliburton, once the CEO and still profiting from their “success” with over $40 million in stocks. So wasn’t it a coincidence that on the eve of this major report he SHOT A MAN IN THE FACE.
Notice any parallels? In the States, they have Cheney shooting a hunting partner; here, we have Black Metal. What are they trying to hide? By the way, more info on Halliburton‘s war profiteering on corpwatch. And if you’re interested, Dick’s medical history.
