    If true, the shit will hit the fan:

    Phone hacking: 9/11 victims 'may have had mobiles tapped by News of the World reporters'



    DESPERATE Rupert Murdoch yesterday flew to London to try to save his crumbling empire.

    He arrived in a cowboy-style hat to be hit by claims News of the World reporters hacked the phones of 9/11 victims.

    Murdoch held talks with News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks, amid fears nine staff and three cops may face jail.

    HIS media empire is crashing around him, he’s just shut down a scandal-hit newspaper and his BSkyB bid is in tatters, but Rupert Murdoch still came out grinning yesterday.

    And this cosy picture of him giving his backing to smiling Rebekah Brooks will no doubt infuriate the 200 loyal staff at the defunct News of the World who were sacrificed while she clung to her job.

    As Labour leader Ed Miliband vowed to scupper Mr Murdoch’s bid to own all of BSkyB, the News Corp boss seemed to brush off his troubles to joke with the under-fire News International chief executive – who was editor when murdered teenager Milly Dowler’s phone was hacked. Asked what his first priority was, he gestured at Mrs Brooks and said: “This one.”

    Mr Murdoch arrived in London yesterday, wearing a Panama hat and clutching a final copy of the News of the World, in a bid to save his crumbling organisation after the phone-hacking scandal saw the 168-year-old paper axed.

    Given the shit that is true - ie that NotW hacked the phones of the victims of Britian's major terror attack on 7/7/05, and the phones of murdered children and their families, and the families of Britain's war dead from Afghanistan and Iraq, I think it is more likely to be true that they also tried during the 9-11 attacks.

    No real outrage from the wingnuts here about this. Not surprising.

    But if it had been George Soros . . .
