Now for some excerpts from the article:
And here's a comment to the YouTube video above:
Brennan's answer -- they do this because they're Evil and murderous -- is on the same condescending cartoon level as the "They-Hate-us-For-Our-Freedom" tripe we endured for the last eight years.
The evidence of what motivates Terrorism when directed at the U.S. is so overwhelming and undeniable that it takes an extreme propagandist to pretend it doesn't exist. What is Brennan so afraid of? It's true that religious fanaticism is a part of their collective motivation, but why can't he just say what's so obviously true: "they claim that the U.S. is interfering in, occupying and bringing violence to their
part of the world, they cite things like civilian deaths and our support for Israel and Guantanamo and torture, and claim that their terrorism is in retaliation"? Indeed, Brennan's boss, the President, has often claimed that things like Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib help Al Qaeda recruitment (and it seems clear it was part of Abdulmutallab's hatred for the U.S.), so clearly U.S. actions are part of the motivation.
This woman is eighty-nine years old. What an inspiration and an example for us all!
My God; she may be the last "good" news reporter alive.
And now look at this comment:
I wonder if Obama really in his heart of hearts agrees with our foreign policy or if he's just trapped by the real powers in this country.... I'm convinced that there's a huge amount that's hidden from the ordinary person.
It's simple. They can't answer the "motivation" question because the answer would point directly at US foreign policy. An analysis of the foreign policy would prove in a most glaring way that the war on terror is a fraud to provide an excuse for wars of imperial aggression to protect US dollar hegemony. That's why they won't touch the question.
