Lieberman ‘Will Have Questions’ About Awlaki’s Post-9/11 Pentagon Dinner

Lieberman ‘Will Have Questions’ About Awlaki’s Post-9/11 Pentagon Dinner; Aaron Dykes;

Leading neocon in Congress, Sen. Joe Lieberman, responded to questions and indicated that he would investigate why al Qaeda’s now #1 operative, Anwar al-Awlaki, was invited to an official Department of Defense meeting in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

The questions were raised by Luke Rudkowski, We Are founder and contributor for RT’s Adam vs. The Man, who confronted the senator, citing reports in both Fox News and CBS News.

Lieberman initially dismissed the questions, saying he’d be ‘surprised’ by such reports, but later stated that he “will look into that.” However, Sen. Lieberman suggested that the Pentagon likely did not know who he was ‘at the time.’ This notion is debunked, however, as the FBI repeatedly flagged Awlaki for links to at least three hijackers in the first week after 9/11.

“Well, I’m going to have some questions about that,” Lieberman said, extending his impromptu remarks. “He’s a target of interest. We know that he’s been involved in a series of attacks on our homeland. Of course, he communicates in English on his website. So he’s a particular danger in terms of radicalizing people here in the U.S. who are going to jihadist websites.”

Since 9/11 I have come to listen to the demonized "truthers" more than the government. Working backward from this last bizarre release of information concerning the OBL operation, the bombing of Libya, ect, to the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and to finally the weak 9/11 report, I find it difficult to be anything but a "truther," quite simply because I know in my gut I am being lied to.

We are lied to when it comes to every sector be it high gas prices, the mortgage crisis, the border and immigration, to the take-over of the internet; in all cases our government lies to us.

So if because I want transparency and truth I am labeled as a "truther," then that is what I am. But I am realistic enough to know that the US Senate is the right arm of specail interest and the House is impotent, so until we the people take control nothing will change.
