Let's start by summarizing Noam Chomsky.

First there's this excellent thread which talks about his dismissal of the US government involvement in 911:

Second there's the fact that Noam Chomsky wrote the following book: "Rethinking Camelot: Jfk, the Vietnam War, and U.S. Political Culture"

Description of Chomsky's book From Publishers Weekly via Amazon:
"Veteran critic/activist Chomsky ( Deterring Democracy ) analyzes the issue most prominently posed in Oliver Stone's film JFK : was President Kennedy a secret dove whose assassination extinguished a chance to end the Vietnam War? Those willing to follow Chomsky's dry, prosecutorial style will find strong arguments against Kennedy mythologists. He provides context for the Vietnam War with a history of U.S. "economic warfare" against "lesser breeds" and the roots of world inequality. ...One of Kennedy's trusted, dovish advisors described the president in September 1963 as supporting the war, and Chomsky calls the record on this issue consistent."

This tarring of President Kennedy as a hawk is absolute bullshit. Read JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (http://www.amazon.com/JFK-Unspeakable-Why-Died-Matters/dp/1570757550/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1283828327&sr=1-1) for the facts.

Yup, he was a dove. Big time. With Vietnam. With Cuba. With Russia. Over and over he proved it. Listen to his masterpiece speech at American University (aka the nail in his coffin):

So Chomsky props up the official lies on both the assassination of President Kennedy and the US government involvement in 911, easily two of the most significant events in US history.

Can there be any doubt that Chomsky is a US government agent masquerading as a dissident in order to confuse actual dissidents?

Myra - we'll have to agree to disagree

Chomsky is wrong about many things. However, that doesn't make him a fraud or a phony or a hired hand.

My own judgement of Chomsky can be seen in many threads on DPF, and I can't be assed to have yet another sterile and unproductive discussion on whether or not Noam is employed by Langley.

Fwiw John Pilger still considers Chomsky the real deal.
