In this remarkable documentary Distorted Morality, Noam Chomsky offers a riveting but devastating critique of America’s current war on terror arguing, in fact, that it is a logistical impossibility for such a war to be taking place.
Professor Chomsky presents his reasoning with astonishing and refreshing clarity, drawing from a wealth of historical knowledge and analysis. “Only those who are entirely ignorant of modern history will be surprised by the course of events, or by the justifications that are provided…”
Noam Chomsky is a renowned scholar, the founder of the modern science of linguistics, a philosopher, a political and social analyst, a media critic, an author of more than 70 books, a winner of numerous prizes and awards, and ranks with Marx, Shakespeare, and the Bible as one of the 10 most quoted sources in the humanities.

“and ranks with Marx, Shakespeare and the bible…”
Interesting order placement and very accurate…..A true hater of America and loved by Hilary and Barry.
explains a lot.
I cant roll my eyes hard enough.
Is quoting the 1984 military handbook definition of ‘terrorism’ make Chomsky a ‘true hater of America’, or does it confirm his statement regarding hypocrisy?
P.S: Chomsky conveys an unbiased moral view of world events devoid of political, and economic ideology. If the taste is unpalatable for you, perhaps you should smell what you are shovelling. (garbage in, garbage out)
You need to put the shovel down sir.
Defining terrorism is easy; recognizing when your own country is perpetrating it, and openly addressing it requires unbiased courage. (neutrality) His position of employment speaks volumes, your polarized (biased) rhetoric does not. (if you are not with us, you are against us – George Bush)
Need I say more?
P.S: Condemning your own country’s actions does not mean you support their supposed adversary. Those who justify hypocrisy, (regardless who is doing it) are biased. This distinction only becomes self evident from a logical process called critical thinking.
