      Widow's Bush Treason Suit Vanishes in Blink of Media Eye
      by W. David Kubiak

      "The decision 'not to do the story' appears to be multiplying
      all over the nation." -- Fred Powledge, ACLU

      "Whoever said `no news is good news,' was BADLY misinformed." -- Dan
      Rather

      Think you're already amazed, alarmed or appalled enough by the
      state of US journalism today? Chew on this a while and think again.
      Grieving New Hampshire widow who lost her man on 9/11 refuses
      the government's million dollar hush money payoff, studies the
      facts of the day for nearly two years, and comes to believe the
      White House "intentionally allowed 9/11 to happen" to launch a so-
      called "War on Terrorism" for personal and political gain.

      She retains a prominent lawyer, a former Deputy Attorney
      General of Pennsylvania, who served with distinction under both
      Democrats and Republicans and was once a strong candidate for
      the governor's seat.

      The attorney files a 62-page complaint in federal district court
      (including 40 pages of prima facie evidence) charging that
      "President Bush and officials including, but not limited to Cheney,
      Rumsfeld, Rice, Ashcroft and Tenet":

      1.) had adequate foreknowledge of 911 yet failed to warn the
      county or attempt to prevent it;

      2.) have since been covering up the truth of that day;

      3.) have therefore abetted the murder of plaintiff's husband and
      violated the Constitution and multiple laws of the United States;
      and

      4.) are thus being sued under the Civil RICO (Racketeering,
      Influence, and Corrupt Organization) Act for malfeasant conspiracy,
      obstruction of justice and wrongful death.

      The suit text goes on to document the detailed forewarnings from
      foreign governments and FBI agents; the unprecedented
      delinquency of our air defense; the inexplicable half hour dawdle of
      our Commander in Chief at a primary school after hearing the
      nation was under deadly attack; the incessant invocation of national
      security and executive privilege to suppress the facts; and the
      obstruction of all subsequent efforts to investigate the disaster. It
      concludes that "compelling evidence will be presented in this case
      through discovery, subpoena power, and testimony [that]
      Defendants failed to act and prevent 9/11 knowing the attacks
      would lead to an 'International War on Terror' which would benefit
      Defendants both financially and politically."

      Press releases detailing these explosive allegations are sent out
      to 3000 journalists in the print and broadcast media, and a press
      conference to announce the filing is held in front of Independence
      Hall in Philadelphia on November 26th (commemorating the end of
      the first futile year of the independent National 9/11 Commission).

      Imagine the world-churning implications of these charges.
      Imagine the furor if just one was proved true. Imagine the courage
      of this bribe-shunning widow and an eminent attorney with his rep
      on the line. Then imagine a press conference to which nobody
      came.

      (Well, more precisely, imagine a press conference at which only
      FOX News appears, tapes for 40 minutes, and never airs an inch.)

      Now imagine the air time, column inches and talk show hysteria
      that same night devoted to the legal hassles of Michael, Kobe, and
      Scott Peterson, and divide that by the attention paid to our little
      case of mass murder, war profiteering and treason. (OK, this is
      really a trick question because no number divided by zero yields
      any answers whatsoever, which evidently in this case is the result
      preferred.)

      When you present documented charges of official treachery
      behind the greatest national security disaster in modern history and
      the press doesn't show, doesn't listen, doesn't write - just what in
      fact is really being communicated?

      That despite all the deaths, lies, wars, and bizarre official actions
      that flowed from 9/11 there's actually nothing there to be
      investigated at all? That addressing desperate victim families' still
      unanswered cries for truth is not a legitimate journalistic concern?
      That news will now be what the corporate media say it will be, so
      drink your infotainment Kool-Aid and kindly shut up?

      While the 9/11 blackout is the most flagrant sign of current media
      dysfunction, it hardly stands alone. Where, for example, was our
      free and fearless press when Pentagon powerbroker Richard Perle
      confessed to a London audience last month that yes indeed, our
      war on Iraq was illegal as hell?

      He calmly explained that "in this case international law stood in
      the way of doing the right things [it] would have required us to leave
      Saddam Hussein alone, and this would have been morally
      unacceptable."

      (Guardian/UK, 11/20/03) And what news have we seen of the
      thousands of Depleted Uranium deaths and birth defects now
      desolating Afghanis, Iraqis and our own Gulf War troops? And
      whose looking into the $1.2 trillion the Pentagon admits is "missing"
      or the half trillion in laundered funds now propping up our banks?
      And how many times have you seen it reported that unbid Iraq
      contracts have pushed the worth of VP Cheney's 433,333
      Halliburton stock options to $26 million plus? But to return to 9/11,
      the funny business has just begun. If you thought press
      performance after JFK's death was a cynical farce, you ain't seen
      nothing yet.)

      A few years back Harold Evans of the London Sunday Times,
      observed that the challenge facing American newspapers "is not to
      stay in business -- it is to stay in journalism.'' As corporations'
      authoritarian, profit-driven consciousness comes to dominate both
      media and governance, you can expect a lot more serial celebrity
      scandals and even less news on the way things work or anything
      that really counts.

      There is a clear method and message in this obscurantist
      madness. All this media consolidation and tightening control is
      strategically aligned with deregulation, privatization, social
      program-gutting deficits and free trade regimes. They are all
      convergent tactics to enforce corporations' full spectrum dominance
      over democratic humankind. If your progressive or conservative
      instincts bid you to arise against this coup, standing with our 9/11
      widow is a good place to start.

      Her name is Ellen Mariani, her lawyer is Phillip Berg and their
      complaint is now online at

      1/mariani.html


      Read it and weep, wail, or whack out a dozen letters to the editors
      around your town, but for god's sake make some noise. When 9/11
      bombshells fall silent in the corporate media's forest it's up to us
      to
      make them resound.
