Talking Points

Wisconsin Students required to buy book on 9/11.

Filed under: Talking Points memo — talkingpoints @ 1:08 pm

University of Wisconsin Madison requires students to read “9/11 and the American Empire; Muslims, Jew and Christians Speak Out.” – That’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo. 

The book is by Dr. Kevin Barrett, a part-time instructor who is also an active member of Scholars for 9/11 Truths.  It’s a fringe kook bunch that blames the Bush Administration, not al Qaeda, for 9/11.


But one essay in the book writes: ‘Like Bush and the neo-cons, Hitler and the Nazis inagurated their new ara by destroying America architectural moument and blaming their destruction on the designated enemies.”

In an interview, this wacko said; “Well, Hitler had a good 20 or 30 IQ points on Bush so comparing Bush to Hitler would be, in many ways would be in insult to Hitler.” 

One of the essays the students are required to read for the course is called ‘A Clash Between Justice and Greed.’  It’s premise is that the conflict between Islamic extremists and Western powers was created after the collapse of the Soviet Union justifying U.S. Defense Spending, and provide a pretext of controlling the worlds resources. 

Interrupting terrorism: Muslims problem of covert operations. 

Another essay suggests in the book that Western Intelligence Agencies commit acts of terrorism and make it look like the work of Islamic terrorists. 

Now, the dribble speaks for itself. Its about a crock. But a question does come to mind. Which political party do you think liberal scholars identify with? 

And that’s the memo.
