Ward Churchill’s Counter Punch

By on March 9, 2005

Ward Churchill published an article entitled “Conning the Public: Who’s the Terrorist?” in CounterPunch magazine today, again defending himself from what he believes are lies and distortions:

First, Dan Caplis, Craig Silverman and numerous other right-wing media spinmeisters asserted that I "advocated" terrorist attacks on the United States in my Op-Ed piece of Sept. 12, 2001. Even a casual reading of that piece, as well as the 300-page book On the Justice of Roosting Chickens in which I more fully explicated and documented my argument, reveals that I did not advocate such attacks. Rather, I pointed out that they were and will continue to be the inevitable result of a U.S. foreign policy that disregards the rule of law and results in massive death and destruction abroad.
