German TV Promotes Al Qaeda Position

It seems the Germans have run a plug for Al Qaeda. The only thing they left out was an insinuation that the Jews were actually in control. Otherwise, there is very little difference.

TV show depicts 9/11 as Bush plot (Account Required sometimes)

“A fictional crime drama based on the premise that the Bush administration ordered the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Washington aired this week on German state television”

With friends like these…

‘The woman, who says in the program that the September 11 attacks were instigated by the Bush family for oil and power, then is targeted, presumably to silence her.’

Who needs allies! I'm surprised they haven't blamed the US for World War II.

‘Sunday night's episode of "Tatort," a popular murder mystery that has been running on state-run ARD-German television for 35 years’

Sounds like a Michael Moore production.

‘As ludicrous as it may sound to most Americans, the tale has resonance in Germany, where fantastic conspiracy theories often are taken as fact.’

Actually, considering what our own press has been printing, I expect this theory will take off here before much longer.

‘31 percent of Germans younger than 30 "think that there is a certain possibility that the U.S. government ordered the attacks of 9/11."’

'ARD, and ARD-produced television shows, are funded by a monthly tax on German televisions. The network plays a role similar to the British Broadcasting Corp., or the Public Broadcasting Service in the United States, which is nominally independent but funded by taxpayers.'

The German equivalent of the BBC or NPR is running sheer propaganda at our expense. I could expect it out of Saudi Arabia, but I never thought I would see it from a western ‘ally’.

'A German diplomat in Washington said no one in Germany took the plot seriously because it was "pure fiction."'

Perhaps he should relay that back to the home office. I don’t know why we consider the Germans or the French as ‘allies’. Considering their history and the fact that the 911 plotters originated their scheme in Hamburg, Germany is in no position to lecture the United States. Yet they can’t contain themselves. I get very tired hearing similar stories to this one over and over again.

Besides going out of their way to oppose us at every turn on the international front, German leaders bash us constantly to hide their own failings. This state funded propaganda is just the latest. The United States should oppose a UN Security Council seat for Germany at all costs. Not because of this stupid show, but because of the river of Anti Americanism and Anti Semitism spewing forth from the country. The last thing we need is another China or France with veto power.
