– sometimes the news is so sensational (as in the case of the Abu Ghraib photographs) that they have to run it. Then there are other channels: the ‘alternative’ media, for example, and the blogs coming out of Iraq and other Arab or Eastern countries.

for the Middle Eastern regimes the terrorists despise and have also increased Western tolerance for, and collaboration with, these regimes’ long-standing practices of severe repression of dissent and of Islamic dissent in particular. To be sure, the terrorists of September 11 would have welcomed the demise of Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, which their attacks facilitated; but they would not have welcomed the way he fell, the occupation of Iraq by Western troops, or the emerging successor regime.

buttresses white supremacy. 4 COOKING UP A REVOLUTION In one meal service, shortly after September 11, eggs from a passing SUV pelted me while I held a Food Not Bombs sign. Another time, a man dressed as Uncle Sam with a severed Osama Bin Laden head set up across from the park to counter protest our sharing of vegetable soup.
