A US political analyst says despite Washington’s claims to being a pioneer in promoting freedom of speech and human rights, the American government is actually disabling and even killing dissidents by inconspicuous means.
“The post-9/11 USA is no longer a beacon of human rights. As former President Jimmy Carter recently wrote in the New York Times, the United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights,” Kevin Barrett wrote in an article published on the Press TV website.
Referring to recent remarks of President Barak Obama administration’s information czar Cass Sunstein (Jewish ed-note), who openly noted that the US government should “disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories,” the analyst said one way to disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories is to terrorize them with death threats.
On June 13, Barrett added, Dr. James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, was scheduled to speak at the University Heights Community Center in Seattle, when the university received a threatening note that the gathering could be hit by “a bomb or fire bomb or maybe just gun fire.” As a result, university officials had to cancel Fetzer’s address.
“Death threats are one way to disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories. Actual assassinations are another,” he explained.
“Barry Jennings, the deputy director of Emergency Services Department for the New York City Housing Authority on 9/11, appears to have been murdered after speaking publicly about explosions he witnessed that partly demolished World Trade Center Building 7 on the morning of 9/11,” he said.
Barrett stated that another 9/11 truth advocate and eyewitness, Dr. David Graham of Shreveport, Louisiana, was murdered – apparently by the FBI – for writing a book about two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers, who were obvious intelligence assets controlled by people at Barksdale Air Force Base.
Bringing another example, the analyst said Mike Ruppert, the original leader of the 9/11 truth movement, had his office attacked by microwave and/or EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) weapons after he began publishing critiques of the official story of 9/11.
He argued that the attacks may have contributed to Ruppert’s poor health and distraught frame of mind, which led him to quit the 9/11 truth movement and temporarily flee the USA in 2006.
“Since we now know that a secret National Security committee is ordering the murder of American citizens, and since we know the CIA has the power to easily simulate deaths from illness and accident, we might as well assume that every time a dissident dies unexpectedly, he or she has been murdered by the US government,” Barrett said.
“A government that extra-judicially murders, disappears, and tortures its own citizens should clean up its own acts before it criticizes other nations. The US should heed former President Carter and start obeying its own Constitution if it wants to have any credibility on human rights,” he concluded.
