  1. See-bel on the AJ show:

    Good job! You do seem a little bit more rowdy while talking with him – I guess he has that effect, especially when his mic level is about 5 numbers above yours ;)

    It was a really good interview! I just have one question for Sibel: Alex was slightly critical of you when he said that you’ve pulled back from a couple of years ago when you said that “bin Laden was under CIA command”. I’m just wasn’t sure from your response today if, indeed, that is your view.

    Thanks!

  3. The degree to which “bin Laden was under CIA command” is debatable, but I don’t think Sibel ever said that as a blanket statement. Correct me if I’m wrong, but my recollection is that in her testimony for the Schmidt v. Krikorian case, Sibel listed specific cases of the CIA using al Qaeda -particularly in the Balkans and Caucases up until 2001 (based on translations she had made). I recall at the time that Alex Jones had turned that into “CIA was running bin Laden up until 9/11!” – which is yet another case of him making a common logical fallacy: turning an existential into a universal, from “there exist specific cases where CIA uses al Qaeda” to “for all al Qaeda operations, they are CIA directed.”

    Listening to AJ can be pretty infuriating – the constant interruptions – the putting words in guests mouths especially as he’s about to go to break – the frothing at the mouth… well that part is at least entertaining. But overall he does bring interesting guests on his show, and as a general portrait of the way things are going, his analysis is frighteningly accurate: at least in terms of the eventualities. Every day Alex is like the frog at the moment that it realizes it’s boiling, which of course is better than living in denial, but when he screams day after day “I’m Boiling!!!” it comes off as exaggerated paranoia to the general listener.

    Hi ROro. Thanks for your reply and for clearing things up for me. I was just watching AJ’s skype interview with Sibel; it was excellent. Alex let her speak for the most part! Yes, I agree he can be infuriating at times: interrupting, exagerating or stretching the truth, but at the same time, he is a fountain of information and knowledge. He is just one of many, many people I go to for non-MSM news.

  5. Yes I just watched that one as well -several times Sibel cut him off! Aha! he’s getting a taste of his own medicine!

    But seriously, for all his quirks, AJ has probably done more to “lead people down the rabbit hole”… “take the red pill”… “stop drinking the koolaid” or whatever expression best describes what I consider a civic duty to PAY ATTENTION! to what is being done in our name, with our tax dollars, and as Alex & Sibel are pointing out, will be eventually turned against us – perhaps sooner than we think.
