Remember Cynthia McKinney!

Where dat ol' liberal media when you need them? Three scandals are being swept under the rug right now by the corporate media, each involving the Bush Administration. One, is of course, the Downing Street Memo, which states that Bush was determined to go to war in Iraq and intelligence was being fixed around that policy. If it were tawdrier, perhaps the media would be all over it like the runaway bride, or the whole Monica Lewinsky thing.
Another is the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. This looks to be dragged out by the media to distract those out raged by the Downing Street from drawing attention to the fact that George Bush lied to Congress, which as well as forgering documents, is an impeachable offense.
But the third scandal will never receive as much attention as the other two. It involves a foreign nation with spies in our defense department, not only gaining access to sensitive security documents, but passing along bogus intelligence at the time the US was planning an invasion of Iraq. Of course, I'm talking about AIPAC, the Israel lobby that owns our Congress. Recently they had a convention in DC and allthe Congress showed up. Why not? They are all owned by AIPAC, why wouldn't they want to thank those who help them hold their seats.
The way AIPAC works is this: AIPAC lobbies for aid for Israel, which Congress sends, then gets kickbacks from AIPAC in the form of campaign contributions. Back AIPAC, and you're in like Flynn. Oppose them and -?
Which brings us to Cynthia McKinney. Democratic Congressperson from Georgia, she was the first to press for an investigation in to 9/11. And why not? Why not find out how and why this serious lapse in America's security defenses occurred. Naturally, George W Bush and Dick Cheney fought this as long as they could. But because of her outspoken position on this in the days following 9/11, she was targeted by AIPAC. Why? Why would a foreign government who is ssupposed to be our greatest ally not want us to investigate this National Tragedy? Because that's what happened. In the 2002 election, Cynthia McKinney was defeated by her Republican opponent who happened to get funding from AIPAC. So instead of a lengthy investigation in to the causes of 9/11, we got the official 9/11 commision limited in time and scope by the President.
That's why we have the Congress of today, tiptoeing through the Capitol, afraid to do anything that goes against what Israel wants, because if they do, they will lose their seat. And a national media doing anything to distract the people from the fact that Congress no longer works for the American people.
