  16. FBI Continues To Foil Its Own Devised Terrorist Plots
    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2012
    It seems there's a new pattern showing itself every time I read a news report in which the FBI proudly announces it foiled a terrorist plot. That pattern goes something like this: hear that a huge explosion was averted and lives were saved, find out the plotter was an American citizen, find out he was under investigation by the FBI for several years, and then finally find out that it was the FBI that egged on the suspect and built his "bomb" for him. In other words, the only way these things could become less impressive is if the FBI actually decided to quit finding these loner folks to urge into violence and just built their own physical straw man to parade in front of the cameras.

    Home Truths about Foreign News

    Resource Type: Book

It shows how HACKS work and the pressures that they face through some of the big news stories and hidden wars of the past decade. It's also about "newspeak" and double talk to square what is actually happening to the complacencies of news organisations at home. Finally, it's about how one HACK thinks; how he has picked his way through the political minefield of journalism and survived with only the loss of a few stories chopped and a few others consigned to the waste bin.
  19. Hidden Agendas
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1998

    Chomsky identifies two approaches to evaluating terrorism: the literal and propagandistic.

  24. A Just War? Hardly
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    Chomsky identifies the premises of "just war theory". He claims that in both the case of Kosovo and Afghanistan these were not adhered to, thus the foundation for "just war" was absent.

    Selected Writings by Rosa Luxemburg

    Resource Type: Book

Mission Connexions exists to support individuals and groups working for freedom and social justice. We work to maintain and make available a record of the theory and practice of people struggling against oppression and for social change. We believe that the more we know about the struggles, victories, and defeats of the past, and about those who took part in them, the better equipped we will be to bring a new world into being. Connexions maintains a physical archive of books and documents, and is engaged in an ongoing project to build and expand an indexed digital archive of documents. We try to feature a wide variety of resources reflecting a diversity of viewpoints and approaches to social change within our overall mandate of support for democracy, civil liberties, freedom of expression, universal human rights, secularism, equality, economic justice, environmental responsibility, and the creation and preservation of community. We are internationalist in our orientation, but as a Canadian-based project we feature an especially extensive collection of Canadian documents and profiles of Canadian activist organizations.
