Noam Chomsky: If Trump Falters with Supporters, Don't Put 'Aside the Possibility' of a 'Staged or Alleged Terrorist Attack' | Alternet
am glad to see I'm not the only one perturbed by Noam Chomsky's recent
interview in which he warns that Donald Trump could engineer a
false-flag terror attack to change the political environment in the US to bolster his powers and allow for greater repression.
Chomsky has been one of the most prominent disparagers of those
attempting to investigate whether either the 9/11 attacks were a
false-flag operation or the Bush administration effectively allowed the
attack to be carried out to advance its interests at home and abroad.
One doesn't need to be convinced that Bush-Cheney or the US security
services were implicated in 9/11 to see that there is a deep problem
with Chomsky adopting his new position. He has previously suggested in
different places both that a major false-flag operation in the US would
be almost impossible to conceal and that it is a waste of the left's
energies, and its credibility, to indulge in this kind of speculation.
That was at least a plausible position for him to adopt. But it is
entirely inconsistent with his new position that we should expect Trump
to carry out a false-flag operation and even accuse him of intending to
do so before it occurs.
Abby Martin has tweeted of the interview:
"Media ruins anyone even pondering if Bush & co knew & allowed
9/11 – yet suggesting Trump could *carry out* a false flag is totally
