• Popular talk show host pink-slipped for openly discussing taboo subjects
By Pat Shannan
Was a popular television talk show host and former New Jersey judge kicked off Fox News because he went too far in disclosing facts about Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) setups and warmongering intrigues on the part of the United States establishment—key issues that AMERICAN FREE PRESS has been covering since its founding in 2001?
In recent days, former N.J. Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano had been drifting dangerously close to the exit doors by providing the American people with simply too much truth. The first week of February he was abruptly canceled from the airwaves due to low ratings, Fox executives claimed.
Napolitano repeatedly opened his show with the question, “Can the federal government take credit for solving a plot of its own creation?”
Focusing on FBI claims that since 9-11 it has foiled multiple alleged terrorist plots to kill Americans, Napolitano pointed out that while there were some 20 such incidents, three were interrupted by private citizens who observed suspicious activity. But the remaining 17 that were “solved” by the feds all had a common and reprehensible thread: They were planned, plotted, controlled and carried out by the federal government itself.
Not unlike the 1993 first attack on the World Trade Center, the FBI had agents or informants befriend young Muslim men by luring them into cooperation with encouragement about being “like-minded” and anti-American. Then, of course, they were arrested before any damage could be done—followed by great hoopla the next day.
Napolitano also tackled Israel’s prime role in promoting an American war against Iran, and this may have been the final straw for those signing his paycheck. The judge’s final guest and source of information was Michael Scheuer, the former chief of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Osama bin Laden-watching unit.
While Scheuer accepts the U.S. government claim that bin Laden was the architect of 9-11, a point many researchers reject, he is a courageous critic of Israel and its U.S. lobby and, as Napolitano’s guest, pointed out that a war against Iran benefits Israel and Saudi Arabia but not the U.S.
