In the run-up to war, skepticism was a rarity among journalists inside the Beltway. Journalist Bob Simon of 60 MINUTES, who was based in the Middle East, questioned the reporting he was seeing and reading. “I mean we knew things or suspected things that perhaps the Washington press corps could not suspect. For example, the absurdity of putting up a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda,” he tells Moyers. “Saddam…was a total control freak. To introduce a wild card like Al Qaeda in any sense was just something he would not do. So I just didn’t believe it for an instant.”
Here in Canada, and I presume the United States we see a call to patriotic love, aimed at a common enemy, call it terrorism,call it Al Quida, call it them, call it half-truths, because ultimately ‘the enemy’ is found there, and here and within us…it is ‘the devil.’
In a PBS special report, “Buying the War” it was suggested (i don’t know how much truths, half-truths and lies are involved) that the media in North America got it wrong…
In viewing a documentary on the Prime Minister Blair and President Bush connection to invade Iraq the documentary blamed it on their common faith Christianity.
Are they right (or left) are they correct ?
Why blame Christianity ?
Seems Christianity has lost its ‘salt.’
What did Jesus Christ carry to battle ‘the devil’…he carried his cross!
Not really the ‘weapon’ of choice in North America…but a choice that suggests that Christianity has lost its direction…
If the three leading world religions cannot agree on a Messiah…they can agree on a common enemy, ‘the devil’…a devil that has corrupted Christianity, and has and will corrupt anything if we do not seek The Truth…
