Media Remains Coldly Silent!!!
3 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Taking Liberties is an interesting documentary that is successful in showing how the Blair Government slavishly followed the foreign and domestic policies of a corrupt American administration.

Yet one very important issue that exposes the authoritarianism of the Blair Government is not addressed and that is the refusal of a full and independent inquiry into the events of 7/7.

Taking Liberties automatically assumes that the events of 7/7 are in accordance with the official Government narrative. This official explanation is taken as a given by the makers of Taking Liberties even when the British Government themselves have admitted that the official story put out to the public is erroneous.

Obviously there was a desire on the part of the Blair Government to leave the events of 7/7 unexplored. Why?

The mainstream media is simply refusing to discuss the numerous anomalies and coincidences concerning the events of 7/7 and 9/11. The BBC purposely goes out of its way to misinform the general public by producing "hit pieces" that vilify those with opposing opinions and tries to align them with "holocaust deniers" or "nutty conspiracy theorists".

Generally the mainstream media response to awkward questions and mounting evidence that contests the official explanation of 7/7 and 9/11 is to remain coldly silent.

Taking Liberties should at least have explored why Blair was so adamant that the events of 7/7, the worst attack on Britain since the blitz, did not deserve a full and independent inquiry.
