Okay, it may be going a little far to call it good news because it should have happened a long time ago. But better late than never. Alberto “Mr Torture” Gonzales has resigned from the post of US Attorney General.
Gonzales had fired some federal prosecutors for political reasons and then lied about it under oath.
Ironically, Gonzales had also signed a memorandum authorising the use of torture in defiance of the Geneva Conventions, but he never resigned over that.
In another matter, a mainstream journalist has declared that he too questions the official version of the events of 9/11. Robert Fisk is the highly regarded and rather controversial Middle East correspondent for The Independent. While stating that he is still not a conspiracy theorist, he is “increasingly troubled at the inconsistencies in the official narrative of 9/11.” The article is good and it’s here in case you’d like to have a look at it.
