Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney Appears on Iran's Press TV

By Albert N. Milliron

Columbia, SC- Iron Mill News Service-September 11, 2007-1218 UTC -Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney appeared today on Iran's Press TVs program, "The Agenda" hosted by Yvonne Ridley. Ridley Is a strident apologist for Islamist terrorists who converted to Islam after being released by the Taliban. McKinney has been associated with Ridley for many years. A quick Google search both woman will revel McKinney is heavily involved with terrorist sympathizers.

McKinney while appearing on the show, called September 11, 2001 an inside job. In addition she related to reporters in a small forum on Middle east terrorism that anyone in the world should not believe anything the United States Government says due to the Bush administrations credibility issues. Further in the interview she related to an Iran audience that President Bush stole the election in 2000 and again in 2004.

As Cynthia McKinney was speaking a caption read below her, " 2008 Presidential Candidate". This writer had heard that Congresswoman McKinney may run as a candidate for the Green Party, but based on a government document search she is not a legitimate presidential candidate nor has set up an exploratory committee. How ironic for Ms. McKinney to call President Bush an illegitimate President when she has not filed the proper paperwork to call herself a candidate for president.

Congresswoman McKinney stated that the Bush administration had helped finance terrorism to cause instability in the world to be able to push his foreign policy, namely the Afghani and Iraq Wars.

She further stated that the intelligences infrastructure in the United States was very strong on 9/11 and they had accurate information prior to the attacks but the information was laid aside so Bush's foreign policy agenda could be carried out;

PRESS TV is the first international Iran-based news network to broadcast in English on a round-the-clock schedule. The Tehran-based headquarters is staffed by media professionals from around the world. PRESS TV has an extensive network of bureaus located in the world's most strategic places.

PRESS TV is viewable in the United States via KU-Band MPEG-2 DVB Format on Galaxy 25 (97W) 12053 Mhz (V) SR:22.000 Mps SR 3/4

Update: Following this article, Cynthia McKinney announced in a letter dated September 12th 2007 that she has decided not to seek presidential office in 2008 (Source Atlanta Journal Constitution). Cynthia has done this before. She states that she is running for presidential office and requests financial support and then uses the funds toward her congressional race. Watch for her to announce a congressional race in the 6th District of Georgia in coming days.
