On 9/13/04, Chris Matthews of Hardball aired an
interview of the 9/11 Commission, but after directing the public to
read the full transcript at his website, it was soon replaced by a
previously taped interview with almost the same panel...
But I have a copy of the original, I can prove every quote I have
posted. It is all about religious beliefs and terrorists by Jamie Gorelick, Slade Gorton, Richard Ben-Veniste and
Fred Fielding, all on the 9/11 Commission.
Gorelick said very slowly and deliberately,
"This is NOT a war on terrorism. It is a war against Islamist
fundamentalist terrorists. These are Jihadists who want to achieve
certain goals. They want to get us out of Afghanistan. They want to
get us out of Saudi Arabia. They want to get us out of Iraq. They want
to get us out of Iraq by using the techniques of terrorists."
Matthews asked if we never did anything politically against them,
would they still have this rage against our country, against women
being equal, against the fact that there’s a different sexual moray in
this country, all these things that they usually associate with this
Gorton said, "Just ask Bin Laden himself. Bin Laden said three
things: ‘Get out of the Middle East, convert to Islam and end all the
corruption of your society.’"
In another section, Ben-Veniste said,
"Our mission is to separate Bin Laden and the al-Qaida and the
al-Qaida wannabes from the Muslim world at large to make it
inhospitable, because you make it—you make their policies—you show
their policies to be so unsympathetic to the religion that they
profess, and your policies..."

the missing transcript
The replacement transcript
posted on Matthew's site as of 11:30 last night is with the 9/11
Commission but completely different, it is not what was shown
at all, and states it has been updated.
What are they trying to cover up, anyway? The truth about Islam?
Possibly OUR MISSION to rewrite a religion? At least they’re being
fair, our public schools are trying to rewrite the Judeo-Christian
religion, stating that God’s prophets of the Old Testament could not
tell the future. I guess they skipped the part where Daniel
specifically names the ruler that would conquer them hundreds of years
later and other prophesies that came true, and are coming true today,
in the Bible. Our children’s 6th grade textbook, A
Message of Ancient Days, takes Biblical stories and rewrites them,
removing God and crediting the people with accomplishments, stating
the prophets only made excuses for disasters.
Is this religious freedom?
Is this Hardball?
Chris Matthews, when you find out and post the real transcript,
please let me know.
MSNBC and Hardball have not responded yet to our inquiry about the
transcript discrepancy, therefore I am posting the
