THE EXCAVATOR
Feb 1, 2011

Robert Parry, a veteran investigative journalist, recipient of the George Polk Award for his reporting on the Iran-Contra scandal, founder of the website Consortium News, and author of several books including, Secrecy & Privilege: Rise of the Bush Dynasty from Watergate to Iraq, and, Lost History: Contras, Cocaine, the Press & ‘Project Truth,’ wrote an article on January 15, 2011, attacking the supporters of 9/11 truth, and defending the Bush administration’s highly questionable narrative that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda attacked America on September 11, 2001.

In his conceited and unwise attack piece, Parry sidesteps the facts that have motivated many well-intentioned and concerned citizens across the political spectrum, and from all around the world, to demand a new 9/11 investigation, saying that 9/11 truth activists believe in “preposterous notions,” that do not deserve any critical attention from the mainstream media, and what he regards as the responsible and serious-minded center in American politics.

For the most part, Parry’s conventional critique of the 9/11 truth and accountability campaign is not different from other journalists and commentators who go halfway towards calling for reform and government accountability, saying that 9/11 truth activists are childish and crazy, and that we should discuss serious and provable government crimes and deceptions. None of Parry’s talking points are original or well thought out, he just has the balls to actually write on the record what he thinks about 9/11 truth in a detailed manner, and risks appearing the fool in the opening eyes of history. And there is no question that Parry is spouting foolish opinions about 9/11. In general, his line of thinking about 9/11 truth reveals the same intellectual dishonesty that is widely shared among the journalistic and political class in the United States and the West.

If Parry wasn’t so smug, I wouldn’t care. But his attitude that he knows better because he is an expert, and a professional journalist is hard to respect. Like other professional journalists he probably can’t even contemplate the thought that bloggers, and regular citizens bested him at his own job, which is about uncovering and reporting the truth. Parry doesn’t want to accept his own incompetence and blindness, instead, he wants to give himself and his useless profession the air of respectability and relevancy.

But while alluding to the rhetoric of responsibility, suggesting that we must avoid giving fair treatment to “conspiracy theories”, Parry fails to live up to his own standards by injecting into the discussion about the validity of 9/11 truth the murderous and deranged act by Jared Lee Loughner, who believed that the Bush administration was behind the attacks, as if his views about 9/11 had anything to do with choice to kill innocent human beings in a public plaza.
