NYT Editors Distort the Manchester and London Incidents
by Stephen Lendman
It’s unclear if these incidents were terrorist acts, false flags or something else. Official accounts are suspect. Believe none of them at face value.
Many questions remain unanswered. Given numerous false flags in Britain, elsewhere in Europe and America since the 9/11 mother of them all, there’s good reason to suspect the worst about Manchester and London incidents – unless proved otherwise.
Times editors made up their mind as expected, repeating the official storyline, calling the May 22 and June 3 UK incidents “grotesque terror attacks,” hyping the importance of “stopping terrorism without sacrificing democratic values…”
Fact: The Times and other media scoundrels consistently ignore state terrorism, the worst kind, America, Britain, Israel and their rogue allies responsible for its proliferation.
Fact: America and Britain are police states, not democracies as The Times claimed.
Fact: The way to stop terrorism is by ending US-led imperial wars, along with halting support for ISIS and likeminded groups by Washington and its rogue allies.
Times editors: “Whatever their path to suicidal violence, whatever their political motives, the Manchester bomber and the three London attackers shared, as Mrs. May put it, ‘an evil ideology of Islamist extremism’ that perversely justifies slaughtering the innocent and vulnerable in the name of the Islamic State and its purported caliphate.”
Fact: America created “Islamist extremism.” Along with Britain and other rogue allies, support for these elements continue, flourishing where they’re deployed, used as imperial tools.
The New York Times is the media world’s leading purveyor of misinformation, disinformation, Big Lies and fake news.
It long ago lost credibility, especially for its geopolitical reporting. It’s hard taking anything it publishes on major issues seriously.
The broadsheet is a longstanding press agent for wealth, power and privilege.
