Like in the case of 9/11, careful fact checking and examination of the evidence by netizens has shown the South Korean government’s case for the involvement of North Korea in the sinking of the Cheonan to be unsustainable. Netizens are more and more able to act as watchdogs. But they need teeth. Ohmy News International, Korea… June 8, 2010

If you wish to know why Sen. Lieberman rushed his “kill switch” bill into the senate and the House, which effectively gives the neoliberal president the ability to shut down “parts” of the internet during a global crisis (like say after another Gulf of Tonkin incident this time getting us into war with Iran?) the reason is simple… their propaganda can’t hold up to scrutiny anymore and the last remaining journalists, bloggers, (as opposed to the MSM Pep Squad stenographers of the establishment) cost the globalists a Global Free Market Wars ”regime change” in North Korea (or at least they delayed it)
In a blow to conclusions that are already under attack from leftwing politicians and activists, a team of experts that investigated the sinking of the Navy corvette Cheonan have admitted showing a diagram of the wrong North Korean torpedo when they presented their findings at a press conference on May 20.
When queried by journalists about discrepancies between the CHT-02D torpedo that attacked the Cheonan and the one depicted in the diagram, investigators said Tuesday that the pictured torpedo was of the model PT-97W and that the error was due to “a mix-up by a staff member while preparing for the presentation.” Chosun IIbo , June 30, 2010
Just days after the South Koreans and the “international team of objective investigators” announced their porous findings about what caused the sinking of the PCC-772 Cheonan in the Yellow Sea, a wave of dissent began which eventually capsized the June 2nd elections in South Korea for the ruling party and cost at least one leading South Korean military official his career. Not to mention the fact that the strong opposition which rose up in South Korea eventually forced their leaders to take a more conciliatory tone with North Korea and even to cancel several planned joint naval operations with the U.S.
For the most part, the South Korean press is just about as corrupt as their U.S. counter-parts; serving only to amplify the “official story” coming from the halls of established power. So who is this article talking about? The blogs and the internet journalists who were being mercilessly railed on by the establishment press and called “conspiracy theorists” for daring to question the obviously flawed “evidence” presented to them by their corrupt leaders (and ours) (please read “PCC-772 Cheonan: An Unacceptable Provocation by the United States of America and the International Community has a Duty To Respond“)
“… The international, independent, investigation… was objective. The evidence… overwhelming. The conclusion… inescapable. This was an unacceptable provocation by North Korea and the international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond.” Hilary Clinton, 5/26/2010
Clinton told reporters the evidence announced Thursday that North Korea sank the Cheonan “is overwhelming and condemning.”
… Daniel Pinkston, a North Korea expert with the International Crisis Group, a multinational not-for-profit organization, said Friday that evidence that North Korea caused the sinking is “pretty irrefutable.” Stars and Stripes May 25th (ish) (Stars and Stripes has REMOVED that story from their website)
So let’s chalk one up for the “conspiracy theorists” shall we?
(Full disclosure - pat on the back for the readers of this site … on May 24, 4 days after the “official story” about the sinking of the PCC-772 Cheonan was announced, I published an article entitled “The Sinking of the Cheonan: We Are Being Lied To“ which carefully detailed various discrepancies between the “evidence” the investigators found and a diagram they showed claiming to be a South Korean CHT-O2D torpedo. This was the basis of their U.S. State Department run sham conclusion which fingered North Korea as the aggressor nation and it was complete bullshit. The article became a kind of running on-line investigation in the best sense of the word. Several propagandists from agencies working with the South Korean government attempted to derail its progress, but in the end, thanks to valuable input from dozens of concerned people all across the world, I think it played a part in the eventual exposure of the deeply flawed election. Over 100,000 viewers read that article and it was republished on dozens of sites all across the world (even translated). A South Korean MSM outlet even posted our diagram depicting the glaring discrepancies between the evidence and the drawing of the CHT-O2D torpedo, which a high-ranking military official could only refute by stating he had 40 years military experience and to his knowledge, I had none. But what I had, what we had, was literally thousands of people all across the world, scientists, military members, and just concerned investigative bloggers who were committed to the truth and who took the time to contribute to what we were doing here. “40 years military experience’ took a beating from “we the people WorldWide” and that is the way it is supposed to be.)
(Rules of Dissent #2 – Don’t linger picking out your own laurels. The opposition never sleeps.)
You might think that after all this, after an internal investigation into the “objective investigation” found serious problems with criminal implications, after a high-ranking military official had to resign his commission, and after the South Korean government had to admit they LIED about the CHT-O2D torpedo comparison… you might think that the globalists behind this farce would step back and offer up to the people of South Korea the REAL story of what happened to THEIR PCC-772 Cheonan and the 40+ South Korean sailors who lost their lives that day… but you would be wrong.
In this article from Chosen, the “official story” is now that some flunkie low on the totum pole “accidentally” put the wrong torpedo diagram up during the press conference. That is absolutely absurd. “the error was due to “a mix-up by a staff member while preparing for the presentation.”
On May 24th, FOUR DAYS after the May 20th presentation with the “wrong torpedo diagram”, Ambassador Han Duc-Soo gave a presentation to the the Center for Strategic and International Studies. During that Power Point presentation, the Ambassador presented SLIDE 29…
This as you can see, is a totally different presentation, 4 days later and across the sea, but with the exact same “mistake” prominately featured for mass consumption here in America. But you would think with so many “military experts” involved that at some point one of them would have noticed what hundreds of thousands of us noticed (with or without military experience) right off the bat; that these things are different.
But no… the lie moved on. The lie moved on that is, till enough people in South Korea got pissed off at being lied to and voted the bums out of office on June 2nd 2010. Now the official Cheonan story changes.. a bit. Funny how accountability and Truth seem to go hand in hand sometimes.
The people of Korea are not out of the woods yet. The globalists are pushing their puppet regime there to step up the aggressive stance against the people of the North. And even though they suffered a major set-back, they are resilient to say the least; anti-democratic sycophant backstabbing traitors are like that sometimes (see - Barack Obama). They are going to have to continue with their various lies and propaganda so we are going to have to continue our unofficial investigations starting with model PT-97W.
Now, if we could only get the MSM over here in the U.S. to help out a little like some did in South Korea, we might see a little of that “CHANGE” we had been promised before the whole shooting match goes down the crapper.
Perhaps we could try to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for staging this entire fake “objective investigation” and lying through her teeth in order to try to start a war with North Korea. Maybe we could actually see her resignation letter before she finishes her mission of making the world safe for Wal-Mart. Which brings me to the third and last rule of dissent, which needs no explanation…

UPDATE - Based on these and other new developments, North Korea is asking for a new investigation into the sinking of the Cheonan… while the U.S. State Department, not surprisingly, is claiming “everything is fine” with the old one…
North Korea has asked the UN security council to call for a new investigation into the March sinking of a South Korean warship.
The North’s ambassador Sin Son-ho wrote to the council, offering to cooperate with the South in a new probe.
North Korea has rejected the conclusion of an international investigation panel that it torpedoed and sank the Cheonan.
… PJ Crowley, the US State Department spokesman, said the South Korean-led
international investigation had already assembled evidence that “points clearly to North Korea and a North Korean torpedo”.
