Isn't freedom of speech a wonderful thing? The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle... I think the point of websites such as this is to alert us to question what we are told by the media (our media) and also not to blindly follow what our 'leaders' may tell us is the "truth du jour".
Certainly many government agencies are in the business of misinformation, or presenting information in the light that benefits the current situation. Our jobs as citizens is to question when we find inconsistencies, not NOT elect leaders that do not represent what we want, and to speak out when we perceive injustices being done.
The goal is NOT to bash each other here or abroad, but to try to find a way to live together as best we can...

Amen, brother! That's exactly what I was thinking, but didn't have the time to convey it. I know there's the Jazz Butcher Conspiracy, but that doesn't warrant thinking EVERYTHING is a conspiracy!
My 2 cents are that the website is all bunch of 'hooey'-- saying that the whole terrorist/anthrax/war thing is a conspiracy and a farce, propagated by Bush & the US. Pisses me off to think of it. Yes, our government is corrupt, but THAT corrupt... I THINK NOT. (Not to mention, our government being that smart, organized and covert... once again... I THINK NOT.)
Granted, everyone in America has a right to view the site... and everyone in America is entitled to their opinion... that is why it is AMERICA, after all, right? You, Pat and I should feel grateful we live in a country, (whether it be Britain or America), where we can spread the rubbish and offend as we feel necessary-- and I am grateful.
