So they are claiming to have killed Osama bin Laden, the so-called founder and leader of Al Queda, the so-called terrorist network the government has everyone convinced pulled off the 9/11 attacks. There are so many contradictions in this story its truly difficult to know where to start attacking them so instead, I'll just focus on one thing....Pay close attention to what's going on in the Middle East right now. Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Syria are all experiencing conflict right now. There are many variables and players in all of those situations. Its difficult to discuss because people in the U.S. know absolutely nothing about any of it outside of what they read online or see on television (or hear from other people). PLEASE, its critical that we learn to study these events and find a critical analysis of these situations. By study I mean do research. Reading a non-supported article online (that you can't confirm or deny) isn't academic research. Study history, develop an understanding of the situation, and compare what you are reading. Learn to find substantiated research that is supported by evidence that stands up over the test of time. If you are really serious, find others around you who are also willing to read and develop study groups where you study the material and discuss what you've read with one another on a consistent basis. It will take time, but you will be shocked at how strong your ability to read between the lines becomes. You will fast realize how little you previously knew and it will become much more difficult to pull the wool over your eyes. The future depends upon us getting more serious about knowing what this government is doing in other countries in our names. For those serious about learning and expanding your minds, start by picking up "Rogue State" by William Blum. There are many others. If you want a book list, drop me a line. The late Kwame Ture said it best: "When you are sick you take an aspirin....Why when you are ignorant don't you read a book?"
