Charlie Hebdo - The Hidden Agenda Exposed [stormcloudsgathering.com]

Une petite retrospective, 1 mois plus tard et ļes esprits semblent encore congelés. Finalement la guerre contre le terrorisme est enfoncée dans la gorge des derniers sceptiques. S'il y avait une petite chance que certains ouvrent enfin les yeux, elle aété encore réduite à presque rien.

Ce genre d'événement devient tellement sacré. La critique est rendue impossible par un assemblage finement agencé des leviers de pouvoir. Chacun avec son grain de sel. Les médias ont leurs "criticons", les agences gouvernementales ont aussi leurs "lanceurs d'alerte", les militaires leurs "faucons" et leurs modérés. Cet agencement subtil de pour et de contre, de droite et de gauche, de roses et de bruns, de "main-stream" et "discidents" permet un brassage incroyablement fumeux. Un nuage de fumée âcre qui cache l'arbre qui cache la forêt.

On en oubli, et c'est bien là l'objectif, de voir les choses froidement.
