Farrakhan discusses motives behind the historic Million Man March
TAMPA, Fla.—The huge floor of the convention center was so full that members of the Fruit of Islam rushed to set up extra chairs as thousands turned out to hear the leader of the Nation of Islam speak in an area known for sunny weather, palm trees, waterways, lush greenery and vacations.

Observers claim the U.S.-led occupation of Afghanistan and the terrible violence engulfing Pakistan is the combination of 30 years of American intrigue in Central Asia to establish strategic and economic dominance over the resource-rich region.
Beware: The Onslaught of the Flood of Lies
