Reader comment on item: [William Blum and] Al-Qaeda's Leftist Brigade

Submitted by Andy Miller (United States), Feb 2, 2006 at 18:03

I have a strong feeling NO one on this blog has actually read the work of Mr. Blum, let alone researched the legitimacy of his claims or information. The fact is, like another hated "leftist" Noam Chomsky, the majority of these America "haters" get their information from our own govenment. So when you hear mention of how the CIA used a car bomb to try and kill a muslim cleric, which instead killed about 80 woman and children ( see William Casey's autobiography), its not some delusional theory. I am not saying the U.S. is evil, or the equivilent to Nazi's, but we definitely hold the value of American lives to a much, much higher standard than we do those in the third world. You either have to be ingorant or delusional not see our record of atrocities in places like Latin America ( El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras) or the Middle East ( Lebanon, Afganistan, Syria).
