CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Al Gore, as Vice Presidential nominee criticizing George H. Bush for blatant disregard for brutal terrorism and an ongoing effort to hide the facts from the American people on September 29, 1992.

He also points out the following in this video …

He charges that the major concern of  President George H. Bush was whether Iraq could hold on against Iran.

He charges …

… that Bush overlooked that Iraq masterminded the assasination of Israel’s ambassador to the United Kingdom which occurred in June of 1982.

… that terrorists of the Achille Lauro hijacking in 1985 fled with Iraqi assistance.

… that the terrorist set to blow up the Rome airport came from Baghdad.

…  that the USS Stark was intentionally attacked by Iraqi aircraft.

… that Saddam Hussein used poison gas on the Kurdish town of Halabja in March 1988.

… that the CIA reported to Secretary of State James Baker that Iraq was clandestinely working a global effort to make nuclear weapons.

Al Gore discusses the Iraq Study Group Report with Matt Lauer on December 6, 2006.

Al Gore says the second invasion of Iraq was a predictable mistake.

Here are his comments in a Keith Obermann segment in May 2007.

Al Gore promoting his book ‘The Assault on Reason.’

The book includes criticism of George W. Bush and his administration.

At the time George W. Bush ordered American forces to invade Iraq, 70 percent of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was linked to 9/11. Voters in Ohio, when asked by pollsters to list what stuck in their minds about the campaign, most frequently named two Bush television ads that played to fears of terrorism.


“Gore’s imperviousness to reality is not the most striking feature of the book. It’s the chilliness and sterility of his worldview. Gore is laying out a comprehensive theory of social development, but it allows almost no role for family, friendship, neighborhood or just face-to-face contact. He sees society the way you might see it from a speaking podium — as a public mass exercise with little allowance for intimacy or private life. He envisions a sort of Vulcan Utopia, in which dispassionate individuals exchange facts and arrive at logical conclusions. This, in turn, grows out of a bizarre view of human nature. Gore seems to have come up with a theory that the upper, logical mind sits on top of, and should master, the primitive and more emotional mind below. He thinks this can be done through a technical process that minimizes information flow to the lower brain and maximizes information flow to the higher brain.”

— David Brooks, New York Times

“[Gore] argues, the ‘open and free public discussion and debate… central to the operation of our democracy’ that has always been supported by a free and accessible press is now threatened by television, with its one-way, entertainment-oriented communication and concentrated ownership, coupled with political exploitation of the mass media to instill a ‘politics of fear.’ Drawing from diverse disciplines, including history, neuroscience, and immune system research, and philosophers ranging from Aristotle, Adam Smith, Thomas Paine, Frederick Douglass and Hannah Arendt, Gore argues that the decentralized, text-oriented internet, which empowers individuals to form communities and publish their own video clips, is ‘perhaps the greatest source of hope for reestablishing an open communications environment in which the conversation of democracy can flourish.’

— Publisher’s Weekly
