from blacklisted news: This short clip of Noam Chomsky being interviewed re 9/11 is very revealing in which he says, referring to what critics of the official narrative allege, "what does it matter even if it was true, it wouldn't be significant?" He then refers back to the assassination of JFK in which he still insists that the assassin was Oswald, with the nonsensical comment that "people get killed all the time."
Add to this his routine dismissal of the role of the Jewish lobby in shaping US Middle East policy and it is easy to understand why he is known as the "Chief Gatekeeper."
Will he debate anyone on these issues? Of course, not. He prefers opponents like Alan Dershowitz who is guaranteed not to raise any important issues that Chomsky cannot counter. In [these videos], he speaks about coincidences that can't be explained but it would be nice if he would explain how it was that the 8,000 page Patriot Act was already written, printed, and ready to be sent to Congress immediately after 9/11 when, before the event, there would have been no chance of its passage. Another coincidence?
