Colleen Rowley Continues to Dance Around the Question
Nightline asked her a pretty simple question: "Do you believe the government helped to murder innocent Americans [on 9-11]?" That she was unwilling to give a straight answer speaks volumes, as does this post at the HuffNPuff. As you can see, she continues to dodge the question, preferring instead to tell the reporter what he should have done:
1) Chris Bury and his news crew left right after interviewing me. They apparently only spent a couple hours at the conference that morning (before I arrived) and did not interview any of the sick 9-11 rescue workers or 9-11 victim family members. It turns out that while castigating the victims' quest for more facts about 9-11, they had refused to interview these folks!
They weren't castigating the victim's quest; they were castigating the nutty conspiracy theories. About all we can glean from Rowley's post is this:
4) The Nightline crew appeared so intent on vilification but it missed my presentation on "Truth--the Dribs and Drabs" as well as other speakers' presentations on questions about inconsistencies in the NORAD time lime, the level of pre 9-11 intelligence that existed, and the actual motivations of the 9-11 hijackers (that involve the illegal Israeli settlements and Israel's handling of Palestinians instead of Bush's glib answer "they hate our freedoms").
A reminder, Colleen. Israel was only the third item on Osama's fatwa against the United States, after the presence of US troops on Saudi soil, and the sanctions against Iraq after the first Gulf War.
Update: Rowley appears in this Russia Today piece, as do Richard Gage and his boxes:
