Summary of article: The 9/11 attacks were devastating and probably the highest on human toll record that is not characterized as war. The violence that happened in 9/11 cannot be compared to the war that was brought upon the citizens of Afghanistan.

Chomsky.INFO is also known as THE NOAM CHOMSKY WEBSITE which was found by Pablo Stafforini in 2002. The website was then claimed by Noam Chomsky and it became his official website in 2003. This website is often criticized for doublespeak, lies and referred to as Chomsky’s own propaganda machine. These claims are made by a variety of governments who claim that Chomsky creates deceptions and conspiracy. Noam Chomsky, who is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, political activist, Institute professor and was an emeritus of linguistics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is also known in the academic and scientific community as one of the fathers of modern linguistics and he is a major figure of analytic philosophy. Chomsky has revived a lot of world attention and is the author of more than 60 books (chomsky.info/books.htm). Chomsky is seen as an enemy in United States and is actually banned in Israel for speaking out against the government. Many journalist and politicians go against what Chomsky says and his work is censored in Israel. After reading this article, there is a very strong political bias throughout every part of the article.

This report would have been censored and filtered out of the media because if this fact was reported to the people United States and their allied countries, it may change their ideas about the war in Afghanistan and may even protest to stop their government from killing innocent people in Afghanistan. Noam Chomsky adds to his political bias when he says “Removing the Taliban regime was an afterthought. There had been no interest in this before September 11” which proves that his article does lean towards an...
