Sept. 11 claim stirs UW probe

...U.S. Rep. Mark Green (R-Wis.), who is running for governor, released a statement that said: "Not a dime of either taxpayer or tuition dollars should be going to Kevin Barrett so he can tell students that September 11 was a creation of the government, and that the most murdering terrorist organization in the world is a myth created by the CIA."

But not everyone was outraged.

Mir Babar Basir, a recent graduate of UW-Madison who served as president of the Muslim Students Association, said he knew Barrett and agreed with his take on the attacks. He said Griffin drew hundreds of supportive observers when he spoke at the university.

"This is not just Kevin Barrett's idea," Basir said. "It's legitimate to think that the U.S. government was involved."

"When David Ray Griffin spoke, it was packed," Basir added. "Madison is fairly liberal. It's not surprising that a lot of people agreed with him."

David Walsh, president of the UW System Board of Regents, said Barrett should be able to share his views in the classroom.

"Unless he's yelling fire in a crowded theater, we need to be careful to protect his academic freedom," Walsh said...

Wisconsin State Lawmaker Calls for Firing of Kevin Barrett Over 9/11 Views

Wis. lawmaker wants lecturer fired for 9-11 conspiracy views - WFRV

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A state lawmaker is calling on the University of Wisconsin-Madison to fire a part-time instructor who has spoken out on his beliefs that figures in the U.S. government, not al-Qaida, were behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Kevin Barrett is scheduled to teach a class in the fall in the UW-Madison Department of Languages and Cultures of Asia, UW-Madison Provost Patrick Farrell confirmed in a statement Thursday.

But Farrell said Barrett's comments on a Milwaukee radio talk show "raised some legitimate concerns about the content and quality of instruction in his planned fall course, 'Islam: Religion and Culture.'"

During his appearance Wednesday night on Jessica McBride's show on WTMJ, Barrett disputed most of the widely accepted information about the attacks that brought down the World Trade Center in New York City when airliners were flown into the twin towers.

Among other things, he claimed the group believed to have carried out the attacks was "a bunch of losers who couldn't even fly planes," and that evidence indicates the buildings were brought down by controlled demolitions.

He acknowledged discussing Sept. 11 in teaching classes, but said it was only to give both sides of the issue, not to convert anyone to his point of view.

"I'm trying to teach them how to think, not what to think," he told McBride.

On Thursday, state Rep. Stephen Nass, R-Whitewater, issued a statement demanding Barrett be fired immediately, calling him an embarrassment and accusing him of spewing "garbage."

"Mr. Barrett is free to stand on the street corner and advocate his nutty left-wing views. However, the taxpayers and tuition-paying families shouldn't pay this man one cent to perform his voodoo in a UW classroom," Nass' statement read.


Farrell said UW officials would give Barrett's course plans a close review.
..


I had a couple of brief chances to chat with Kevin Barrett while up in Chicago earlier this month, and I only have good things to say about him. While riding on the train Kevin and I talked about a variety of topics we would like to see discussed more by the media and general public, and at no point did I consider him anything but a rational minded concerned citizen. Calling Mr. Barrett an 'embarrassment', or suggesting that he would only 'perform his voodoo' in a classroom is a hotheaded, ignorant, and baseless insult.

Typically I would not make any personal comments when covering news such as this, but this is an important exception which I feel very strongly about. I would encourage others who might speak on behalf of Kevin's character to contact Rep. Nass via his contact information as listed on his website as well as contact the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Thanks to Jon Gold for the heads up.

The Guardian Covers 7/7 'Conspiracy Theories'

Seeing isn't believing - The Guardian

I asked passengers what they had seen and experienced and was told by two survivors from the bombed train that, at the moment of the blast, the covers on the floor of their carriage had flown up - the phrase they used was "raised up". There was no time to check their statements as moments later the police widened the cordon and I was directed to the opposite pavement, outside the Metropole hotel.

Moments later, Davinia Turrell, the famous "woman in the mask", emerged from M&S together with other injured passengers and I followed them into the hotel. It was from there that at around 11am I phoned a hurried, and what I now know to be flawed, audio report to the Guardian. In the report, broadcast on our website, I said that it "was believed" there had been an explosion "under the carriage of the train". I also said that "some passengers described how the tiles, the covers on the floors of the train, flew up, raised up".

It later became clear from interviewing other passengers who had been closer to the seat of the explosion that the bomb had actually detonated inside the train, not under it, but my comments, disseminated over the internet where they could be replayed ad nauseam, were already taking on a life of their own.

"Did July 7 bombs explode under trains?" read a posting that referred to my report a few weeks later. "Eyewitness accounts appear to contradict the theory that suicide bombers were responsible for killing 39 [sic] passengers on London's tube network that day."

Another went even further: "How Black Ops staged the London bombings: Staged terror events - like magic tricks - rely on misdirection to throw people off the track ... The bombs on the underground were not in the tube carriages. They were under the floors of the carriages."

Soon, internet chatrooms and blog sites were buzzing with even more bizarre theories: the bombers thought they were delivering drugs but were deceived, set up and murdered; or they thought they were carrying dummy "bombs" designed to test London's defences; or the plot was monitored by any number of secret services, from M15 to the CIA to Mossad, who let it happen in order to foment anti-Muslim feeling. Then there are the claims by 9/11 conspiracy theorists that 7/7, like the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, were all part of a cunning scheme to further the pro-Iraq war agenda of the Bush/Blair governments and the "New World Order".


We haven't had much discussion of 7/7 here at 911blogger.com - since it is not 9/11 related - but this is pretty big coverage over at The Guardian. So, use this as your opportunity to talk about 7/7, and check out Alex Jones's new movie Terror Storm for his coverage of 7/7 as well.

The Myth of Al Qaeda

Newsweek has a new article called "The Myth of Al Qaeda: Before 9/11, Osama bin Laden’s group was small and fractious. How Washington helped to build it into a global threat."

Here are some excerpts:

Certainly al-Libi is looking less and less like the fearsome 'bin Laden lieutenant' he was made out to be. And we find this sort of debunking has occurred with many Al Qaeda "lieutenants" whose gauzy reputations are reduced to pill-sized smallness once the culprits themselves fall into our hands.

***

Every single one of these stories, when subjected to the harsh light of public scrutiny, has collapsed.


The article gets most everything about 9/11 itself wrong. But, like the British documentary "The Power of Nightmares", this American essay shows that Al-Qaeda is largely a myth concocted by the neocons to justify the war on terror.

Upcoming Screenings in Sheffield England Throughout July



A Month of Film Screenings on: 9/11, Oil, War and Globalisation
Every Sunday in July at SIF (Sheffield Independent Film), films start at 6:30pm and 8pm.

The attacks on New York and Washington on 11th September 2001 have been described as a "New Pearl Harbor" and they have been used to justify the war against Afghanistan and Iraq, the erosion of civil liberties in the US and the UK and the permanent "War on Terror".

Since 9/11 conspiracy theories have flourished, however one of the least credible conspiracy theory is the official narrative this selection of films explores some of the 9/11 smoking guns and the possible motivation of those responsible.


They are going to have quite a number of films to show, here is a quick list:

Response to New York Times 9/11 Article Appears in Illinois Paper

Viewpoint: New York Times and neocons bury 9/11 truth movement - rockrivertimes.com

With the 9/11 truth movement, it was a case of walking into a carefully planned and skillfully executed trap. The Times article branded the movement as a group of “conspiracy buffs” and proceeded to ridicule and trash their beliefs. The attack was predicated on a report of a two-day conference in Los Angeles sponsored by the 9/11 movement.
..
Ruppert said the movement failed to consider two key points: when the major media must take note of a story they have failed to report, they try to discredit independent efforts, and independents must avoid the obvious points of ambush.

It is evident now that the only movements challenging the government line and revealing the complicity of the press that will get publicity are those easily discredited in the public eye.
..
In addition, anyone with any common sense still asks, “Why did the 47-story building WTC 7 next to the twin towers—which housed the FBI, CIA, SEC, ATF, EEOC, among other agencies—collapse in exactly the same demolition-like-manner when it was never hit by any airplane?”

Then consider a new book by Ron Suskind, a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal and a 1995 Pulitzer Prize winner, The One Percent Doctrine, which relates a panicky CIA officer telling President George W. Bush in the summer of 2001 a huge attack on the U.S. was imminent; to which Bush replied, “O.K. You’ve covered your ass.”

Suskind’s book also shows Cheney as the real power in this administration, and reveals the CIA nickname for Cheney, “Edgar,” as in Edgar Bergen, the ventriloquist, with his dummy, Charlie McCarthy.
..
Besides Suskind’s book, which was favorably reviewed in The New York Times, by the way, and featured on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show, don’t expect to hear too much national discussion of the questions surrounding 9/11—whether answered or not—any time soon.

Further Followup to Tom DeLonge's Statements on 9/11

Blink 182 Star Latest Celebrity To Question 9/11 - prisonplanet.com

Blink 182 star Tom DeLonge has followed in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen by becoming the latest celebrity to publicly doubt the official version of events behind 9/11 and voice his belief that the attacks were an inside job.

DeLonge is the lead singer in Blink 182, a southern Californian punk/pop quartet that has had two US Billboard number one selling albums and whose 1999 album Enema of the State went platinum five times over.

During a hosting spot on a San Diego’s KAVA-FM radio station, DeLonge talked with Professor James Fetzer about evidence of 9/11 inside involvement.

"We do know that the buildings came down in a fashion extremely similar to a controlled demolition of a building - we do know that expertise that is needed to fly those gigantic planes into that exact location could never have been achieved by someone that just learned how to fly a small plane, said DeLonge."
..
"This isn't about the red or blue, this is about this administration being involved in something that is really really scary and really really dark and deceptive."
..
Celebrities questioning 9/11 do not give the truth movement credibility, that has already been obtained through the research of people such as Professor Jones, Morgan Reynolds and Andreas von Bülow. Celebrities give the truth movement a more vocal platform and a means of reaching a sector of society that might usually be off-limits via the normal reaches of the alternative truth community.


BLINK 182 SINGER JOINS 9/11 DOUBTERS - freemarketnews.com
According to an Internet news-site posting, Blink 182 star Tom DeLonge has now spoken out in public with his doubts about the official version of the events behind the September 11, 2001 attacks. He also reportedly declared his belief that the attacks were an inside job, not just the work of "a bunch of people who just learned to fly planes."

VT 9/11 Truth Group Stages Performance Protest



Activists Protest Guantanamo and 9/11 Report - Seven Days
Last Sunday afternoon, a perfect 80-degree day brought crowds to the Church Street Marketplace in search, perhaps, of sun, sustenance and sales. Some of those shoppers and cafe people-watchers were treated to an unexpected, confrontational bit of street theater. Nine men wearing black hoods and orange jumpsuits, meant to represent Guantanamo Bay prison detainees, made their way down Church Street, hands held — though not cuffed — behind them. Two in front carried an upside-down American flag; two at the rear carried a large white sign with the message: "Arrest the U.S. government — 9/11 was a U.S. military attack." These strong words met with derision and anger from some; others applauded. "Only in Burlington . . .," opined one onlooker.

The group stopped in each block for a protest/performance: The "prisoners" kneeled on the ground with heads bowed. An accompanying "narrator," wearing a striped shirt and cargo shorts, read brief biographical statements on their behalf, standing next to each in turn. "My name is Jamil al-Banna," the narrator declaimed. "I have been imprisoned for 4 1/2 years without being charged with a crime. I have not been allowed legal counsel. I have three sons ages 6, 8 and 9. My oldest prays every day that I am not being tortured . . ." At the end of each bio, the narrator shouted, "Only 9/11 truth can set me free."
..
At an organizational meeting prior to their demonstration, Shelburne resident Pete Garritano, 50, explained that he and other members of the local Truth Group don't know whether any of the controversial 9/11 conspiracy theories are true, but they are certain the official 9/11 Commission Report doesn't add up.

Garritano pointed out that the Bush administration delayed the start of an investigation for 441 days after the attacks, and then created a commission composed of Bush loyalists. Burlington Truth Group member Frank Haddleton, 43, said their immediate goal is a city council resolution calling for a new 9/11 investigation. Thirty-seven-year-old Greg Nixon, also of Burlington, put it this way: "The burden of proof is on the government to tell us what really happened."

"We believe that the more people actually take the time to examine the facts," added Garritano, "the more people will realize that the government's story is like Swiss cheese."

The Vermont 9/11 Truth Group is not alone in its skepticism. There are corollary activists in New York, Chicago, Boston and many other cities. There is a British 9/11 Truth Group, and even a Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth. According to Garritano, these are not chapters of a national organization; rather, they are all grassroots groups that have cropped up independently and now exchange ideas and information — see www.vt911.org for links. Nixon explained that the Vermont group launched after David Ray Griffin, author of The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, came to speak at Burlington's Unitarian Church last fall. His book was one of the offerings at the information table during Sunday's demonstration.

Manufacturing “terror” as a means of intimidation

The Miami indictments: Manufacturing “terror” as a means of intimidation - wsws.org

Within 48 hours of the US Justice Department’s startling announcement Friday of the round-up of a “home-grown” terrorist cell in Miami, the media had all but dropped the story.

Its initial response, particularly that of the broadcast news outlets, was to amplify the government’s lurid charges, warning of a conspiracy “even worse than September 11,” including a supposed plot to blow up the nation’s tallest building, the Sears Tower in Chicago. The television news channels carried live shots of the building, as if hijacked airplanes were about to plow into them.

As details of the supposed plot and the identity of the alleged conspirators came more sharply into focus, however, the media backed away. Not only was the Chicago skyscraper in no danger, there also existed no plot, much less the means of carrying one out. The entire government case was so manifestly bogus that not even the right-wing fabulists at Fox News could sustain it.
..
The fact remains that every supposed terrorist threat foisted upon the public by the administration has proven to be a government-orchestrated provocation. The events of September 11 themselves have never been seriously investigated. How and why the government in Washington allowed them to take place—despite ample forewarnings of impending attacks involving the use of hijacked commercial jets as bombs, and even surveillance of the hijackers by US intelligence—has yet to be explained to the American people.

L.A. 9/11 Conference Lays Case For Gov Involvement In 9/11

L.A. 9/11 Conference Lays Case For Gov Involvement In 9/11 - stoplying.ca

Alex Jones's conference in LA was a raging, and life altering success. From the debut of Alex's new "off the charts" film TERROR STORM to initiate this historical conference, to the last words with a JFK quality speech from Dr. Robert Bowman. This conference was non-stop packed with information, inspiration, and clear leadership within the 911-truth movement. As a Canadian it was inspiring to meet many other canuk's who traveled the distance to find out the truth first hand. Equally represented from an international perspective were Australia, Japan, and England. Like wise men and women of times gone past, souls traveled great distances to hear, see, and feel the truth that is the quintessential story of our time. The original research that was presented at this conference with regards to 911 was cutting edge, and will ripple across the planet. It was an honor and humbling experience to be a part of history, and a privilege to know the total truth of the pivotal event of our collective culture.

Springer Wants Evidence.

Got this from one of the million or so news lists I'm on:

June 27th, 2006...

Hello everyone,

A little while ago I was listening to Air America as I drove. Jerry Springer was doing a show... when a caller asked him why he doesn't do a show about 9/11 being an "Inside Job".

Jerry responded by saying and this is almost verbatim: "if I could see some evidence, I would devote a full three hours to it." ...

I think we can overwhelm him with evidence.

DVDs (not streaming) should be mailed to him. I don't have a physical address but someone can find it.

Plus many of us have ready made email packets of websites, articles, streaming video links...

Springer contact.

The 9/11 deniers - salon.com

According to Dylan Avery, a 22-year-old filmmaker in upstate New York, no terrorists hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, and no passengers heroically revolted. The plane didn't even crash in that Shanksville, Penn., field, he says, but instead landed safely in Cleveland. And not only that. As Avery sees it, the true 9/11 attackers brought down the World Trade Center in a controlled demolition, most likely to get at $160 billion in gold bars he believes were buried under the towers. As for the attack on the Pentagon, Avery insists it was hit by a cruise missile, not a terrorist-commandeered Boeing 757.

Over 1200 attendees from as far field as Japan, Great Britain and Australia converged on the Sheraton Hotel in Los Angeles to enjoy a conference that they later described as the best 9/11 truth symposium ever, the highlight of which was a personal appearance and speech by Hollywood star and 9/11 truth crusader Charlie Sheen.
...
BYU physics professor Steven Jones' authoritative lecture on the use of incendiary devices in the demolition of the trade towers and building 7 went further than ever before in its conclusive tone on the issue. Jones has now tested steel samples from two different sites that both clearly show the use of thermate as a tool of implosion and the analysis has been verified by two other universities.

Lt. Col. Robert M. Bowman, the former head of the Star Wars weapons defense system and Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Cal Tech, also gave a powerful presentation on the NORAD 9/11 stand down which was extremely well received.

The highlight for many was the surprise personal appearance of Hollywood star, current TV hit and recent shining addition to the ranks of noted 9/11 whistleblowers Charlie Sheen, who received a rapturous ovation before his speech on the courage of those who went before him in standing up to an unpalatable truth in the name of freedom.

Carol Brouillet Reviews Who Killed John O'Neill

Review of the Film- "Who Killed John O'Neill'"

I had organized premieres of the first documentaries on 9/11 in San Francisco, as well as the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11, plus two 9/11 Film Festivals last September. I had seen most of the documentaries and previews of the 9/11 documentaries in progress, but 'Who Killed John O'Neill' wasn't a documentary. It was an arty, psychological drama, with humor and surprises about the very real events of September 11th and it contained information that I hadn't come across before. I was so impressed by the film that I contacted the filmmakers and tried to include it into the program in Chicago at the very last minute. In fact, I put it in the Sunday morning slot where I had hoped to premiere my own film- 'Behind Every Terrorist- There is a Bush' and missed a press conference that Senator Boxer had invited me to attend, to make sure that the film made it into the program and that the film makers could make their travel arrangements to be in Chicago for the 'World Premiere.'
..
I spoke in Chicago on how social movements work and how the catalyst for all social movements is simply that 'The System Relies on Societal Myths and is Threatened by the Exposure of Societal Secrets.' The largest myth is that power holders serve society rather than 'elite interests' at tremendous cost to people and planet and in violation of deeply held social values. 9/11 is the defining event of this century and how it is understood will either institute a transnational global police state or liberate us from those who use violence, terror and war for personal power and profit. We are on the cusp of hope, with half the population believing the official story and half recognizing the cover-up. The efforts of each of us, now, to educate our fellow citizens about 9/11, reality, the media, and our efforts to organize ourselves, demand government accountability, and change policies and power-holders will determine our future. For this reason, I highly recommend that everyone see the film 'Who Killed John O'Neill' (Available online at http://WKJO.com).

Washington Post Covers L.A. Conference

The Washington Post covered the L.A. conference today:

LOS ANGELES -- About 1,200 people gathered over the weekend for what organizers billed as the largest conference on the conspiracy theories that consider the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to be a result of official negligence or a U.S. attempt to incite world war.

"There are so many prominent people . . . who have stated that the evidence is overwhelming that 9/11 was an inside job," syndicated radio talk show host Alex Jones said at a news conference.

Conspiracy theorists are convinced that the U.S. military command "stood down" on the day of the attacks, that the hijackers were trained at U.S. military bases and that the World Trade Center towers collapsed because of a series of controlled explosions set before they were hit by two hijacked planes. Suggested motives include expected benefits for U.S. arms and oil conglomerates, and revolutionary plans for a new world order headed by the United States.

The theories have been derided by critics as wild and far-fetched. The official Sept. 11 commission cited government intelligence lapses in the failure to prevent the attacks by al-Qaeda that killed nearly 3,000 people. A 10,000-page investigative report by the National Institute of Standards and Technology held that jet-fuel fires led to the twin towers' collapse."

9/11 conspiracy theorists gather at LA conference

They wore T-shirts asking "What Really Happened?," snapped up DVDs titled "9/11; The Great Illusion," and cheered as physicists, philosophers and “terrorism” experts decried the official version of the September 11 attacks that shook America to its core.

Some 1,200 people gathered at a Los Angeles hotel on the weekend for what organizers billed as the largest conference on the plethora of conspiracy theories that see the 2001 attacks on Washington and New York as, at best, official negligence, and at worst an orchestrated U.S. attempt to incite world war.

"There are so many prominent people who are incredibly well-respected who have stated that the evidence is overwhelming that 9/11 was an inside job," syndicated radio talk show host Alex Jones told a news conference.

"There are hundreds of smoking guns that people need to be made aware of," said Jones, calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and charging that mainstream media had been slow to cover the growing movement of 9/11 skeptics.

The "9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda" conference comprised two days of seminars, video presentations and talks by groups including "Scholars for 9/11 Truth," www.infowars.com and an appearance by actor Charlie Sheen.

Understanding 9/11 Anxiety, Avoiding a National Jonestown

Good article, explaining why people won't listen to reason:
http://mujca.com/bushcult.htm

...
My own “Eureka moment” for understanding 9/11 anxiety came during a private telephone conversation with one of my favorite public radio personalities, Jean Feraca. After a brief discussion of my view of 9/11, Jean’s lively, lovely, eternally-curious voice sounded increasingly strained, pained, almost depressed. Finally she blurted out: “If you really believe that, why don’t you leave the country?”

The last person I would expect to hear utter a mindless “America—love it or leave it” primate grunt is Jean Feracca. Fox News, sure. But Jean? Doesn’t she understand that we 9/11 truth activists love America too much to leave her? Walking out on America after 9/11 would be like leaving a family member who has been shot by a mugger to die slowly on the sidewalk.

Jean Feraca’s “love it or leave it” blurt-out helped me understand what 9/11 anxiety can do to otherwise thoughtful, cultivated, cosmopolitan people. It underlined for me the key role of the cycle of anxiety-induction followed by anxiety-reduction in the 9/11 psy-op and the mind-control regime that followed.
...
Such anxiety-induced cultishness can lead to collective insanity, as the Jonestown episode shows. People can be led to ignore clear, obvious facts—even the evidence of their own senses—and live out a mass delusion or hallucination that they accept as consensus reality, and cling to in the face of all evidence to the contrary. They can watch videos of the Twin Towers being blown to kingdom come, WTC-7 being demolished conventionally, Larry Silverstein confessing to its demolition, Bush reading to schoolchildren with a guilty smirk while the nation is supposedly under surprise attack...and still cling to their preconceived notion that any “attack on America” must have been the work of outsiders.

What Is The President And The Vice President's Word Worth?

http://www.yourbbsucks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10961

By Jon Gold
6/24/2006

I was watching Alex Jones' new movie, The Terror Storm, and Alex had driven to "Camp Casey" in Crawford Texas. At "Camp Casey", he managed to get an interview with ex-CIA Analyst of 27 years, Ray McGovern.

Mr. McGovern made a very profound statement.

"For people to dismiss these questioners as "conspiratorial advocates", or "conspiratorial theorists"... that's completely out of line because the... The questions remain because the President who should be able to answer them, WILL NOT."

During the 9/11 Commission, a commission which the President and the Vice President fought "tooth and nail" against, they eventually agreed to meet with the members of the Commission.

However, "they were not under oath and there was to be no recording made of the session nor a stenographer in the room."

Simply stated, the "9/11 Truth Movement", which is comprised of individuals like Dr. Robert Bowman, former head of the "Star Wars Program", Professor Steven E. Jones, Physics Professor at BYU, Dr. Morgan Reynolds, Former Chief Economist for the U.S. Department of Labor from this Bush Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Sect. of Treasury under Pres. Reagan, and the "Father of Reaganomics", Michael Meacher, Former UK Minister of Environment, Catherine Austin Fitts, Ass. Sect. of Housing For President Bush I, Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Rep. Ron Paul, and so on... has, AT THE VERY LEAST proven that we have been lied to about 9/11, and that it appears our Government was complicit in the attacks.

One of the things we have learned during this administration's reign is that whatever they say, the opposite is usually the truth. "We abide by the law of the United States, that we do not torture." "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." "Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction."

Why then do 48% of Americans believe what they say about 9/11? Why should we believe the word of President Bush and Vice President Cheney when it has been proven time and time again that they can't be trusted?

In other words, their word means nothing. Whatever they said to the 9/11 Commission can NOT be trusted.

They are the ones that say, "9/11 drives U.S. policy". They are the ones who have used 9/11 more than ANYONE else. They are the ones who have benefitted from it the most.

It is time for America to start asking them for answers.

Under oath, in public, and WITHOUT each other.

More Academics Challenge the "Official Story"

“This definitive volume brings together scholars and students of 9-11-2001 in a sustained effort of critical research on the events of that day, and assesses whether or not the truth has been told by the U.S. government. It further explains the context of 9-11, with particular reference to the American state but also the U.K. state. The evidence presented will cause those with an open mind to fear for the world’s future, were we to remain on the present course.”

So says the blurb on the back of Elsevier’s new volume, The Hidden History of 9-11-2001. This is an accurate description of the book. I have written a review for a general readership here. You can view chapter abstracts from Elsevier here.

For the serious researcher who has read extensively about 9/11, the real nuggets in the book are: 1) The now published opinion, by a Professor of Economics, that “there is evidence of insider trading” preceding 9/11. 2) The expository deconstruction of the 9/11 Commission which destroys any notion of “impartiality” in its shoring up of a “public myth”. 3) Careful, thorough, documentation of state-sponsored terror, & the failure of leading lights of the Left to come to grips with this reality. 4) Nafeez Ahmed’s tour de force essay, "Terrorism and Statecraft: Al-Qaeda and Western Covert Operations after the Cold War", some of his best work is in this book.

There are two members of ST911 in this volume, the rest are not affiliated, as far as I know. This book establishes a benchmark for future scholarly analysis of 9/11. It also lays a beach-head for volumes coming down the pipe; Griffin and Scott’s “9/11 And The American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out”, and MUJCA’s 9/11 and American Empire: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out.

This is highly recommended reading.

The Godfather of 9/11

Original at http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2006
/06/godfather-of-911.html


Many people have heard of the Project for a New American Century. But PNAC does not go far enough in explaining why 9/11 was carried out. This essay looks at the modern intellectual force who actually created the justification for 9/11.

Leo Strauss is the father of the Neo-Conservative movement, including many leaders of the current administration. Indeed, some of the main neocon players were students of Strauss at the University of Chicago, where he taught for many years. Strauss, born in Germany, was an admirer of Nazi philosophers and of Machiavelli.

So what does this have to do with 9/11? Well, Strauss believed that a stable political order required an external threat and that if an external threat did not exist, one should be manufactured. Specifically, Strauss thought that:

"A political order can be stable only if it is united by an external threat . . . . Following Machiavelli, he maintained that if no external threat exists then one has to be manufactured"(quote is by one of Strauss' main biographers).

Indeed, Stauss used the analogy of Gulliver's Travels to show what a Neocon-run society would look like:

"When Lilliput [the town] was on fire, Gulliver urinated over the city, including the palace. In so doing, he saved all of Lilliput from catastrophe, but the Lilliputians were outraged and appalled by such a show of disrespect." (this quote also from the same biographer)

Moreover, Strauss said:

"Only a great fool would call the new political science diabolic . . . Nevertheless one may say of it that it fiddles while Rome burns. It is excused by two facts: it does not know that it fiddles, and it does not know that Rome burns.


So Strauss seems to have advocated governments letting terrorizing catastrophes happen on one's own soil to one's own people -- of "pissing" on one's own people, to use his Gulliver's travel analogy. And he advocates that government's should pretend that they did not know about such acts of mayhem: to intentionally "not know" that Rome is burning. He advocates messing with one's own people in order to save them from some "catastophe" (say the lack of justification to monopolize middle eastern oil to keep it away from our real threat -- an increasingly-powerful China?).

Moreover, since Strauss advocated "manufacturing" external threats, false flag terrorism seems to fit the prescription perfectly.

Is it any wonder that Strauss' disciples carried out 9/11? The cold war was over, so there was no real external enemy that was scary enough to maintain a stable political order. This is especially true given that: election fraud brought the neocons into office; their popularity was very low before 9/11; and they could only move the American public away from their traditional ideas of freedom and fighting only in self-defense if sufficintly terrified about a big, bad boogeyman.

The neoconservatives had to manufacture that external threat by "pissing on" New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvannia. They had to pretend that they didn't know that the planes were about to hit and that Rome was about to burn.

Strauss told them so."

Flight of Capital

Pesky Canuck...

http://rigint.blogspot.com/2006/06/flight-of-capital.html
This may be old news to you, but just a quick note here of something I'd missed about Flight 77, thanks to "Bismillah" and the RI forum, that I hope you won't miss, too.

At least among those with a mind for such things, it's fairly well-remembered that on September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld made the shocking announcement that the Pentagon "couldn't track" $2.3 trillion of its transactions. "Iroquois" observes, "What's interesting to me is that he made his press release on a Monday. In DC, I always see bad news given on a Friday, usually late in the afternoon on Friday. The exception, of course, would be when someone happens to know that there is a far bigger story coming out."

And we know that Flight 77, allegedly piloted by an incompetent, made an aerobatic, spiralling descent over Washington, effecting a 270-degree turn to strike the Pentagon from a western approach at ground level. The side struck was the only one with an exterior wall hardened against attack, and was relatively empty while renovation continued.

Relatively. The unfortunate construction workers perished outside, but who were the expendables within?

From The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, December 20, 2001: "One Army office in the Pentagon lost 34 of its 65 employees in the attack. Most of those killed in the office, called Resource Services Washington, were civilian accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts. They were at their desks when American Airlines Flight 77 struck."

The Arlington County After-Action Report noted that the "impact area included both the Navy operations center and the office complex of the National Guard and Army Reserve. It was also the end of the fiscal year and important budget information was in the damaged area." And Insight Magazine editorialized that "the Department of the Army, headed by former Enron executive Thomas White, had an excuse [for not making a full accounting]. In a shocking appeal to sentiment it says it didn't publish a "stand-alone" financial statement for 2001 because of "the loss of financial-management personnel sustained during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack."

High Crimes of State often come down to the movement of capital, and so the high criminals generally share the gray and black economics of common felons. Money is money; it's the magnitude of the heist that's different, and the means to effect and cover-up the crime. And part of the cover-up of the Pentagon heist has been the no-plane shell game, played smartly by Rumsfeld himself who "misspoke" that a "missile" had struck the Pentagon the same week Thierry Meyssen's original no-plane website was launched.

It's such disinformation that has drilled irrelevance and folly into a once potentially dangerous and angry army of authentic skeptics.

Vermont CBS Affiliate Covers Craig Hill's Senate Run

Green Candidate Seeks Democrats' Senate Nomination - wcax.com

Craig Hill of the Green Party says he'll run as a Democrat. Hill embraces a conspiracy theory concerning 9-11, claiming the Bush administration was behind the terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center. Hill showed a video of what looked like an implosion of the Number Seven building in lower Manhattan after the collapse of the twin towers. The smaller, 500-foot tall building fell flawlessly as if it had been taken down by well-placed explosives. He claims Republicans and Democrats alike have been complicit in a cover up.

Hill is just as critical of the Democrats as he is of Bush. He called Sanders "a creation of the Beltway," claiming that Sanders "sold his soul basically to the Democratic leadership."

Asked why he would run for the nomination of a party he despises, Hill said, "I'm going to go around the state and explain this to the Democrats of Vermont, how rotten their party is. Their party is protecting the Bush administration in every way it can, outside of what I say, it's feeble protests."

Independent Florida Newspaper Covers Loose Change

'Change' retells terror attacks' history - alligator.org

Recent political awareness in America has led a few into believing that President Bush was involved directly in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The conspiracy theory is nothing new and has been propagated by French author Thierry Meyssan and the underground film "Loose Change."
..
Attempts made to gain financial backing to allow the release of the film in theaters nationwide have been denied. Due to its political nature, film producers won't risk their careers by releasing it, either.
..
The reasoning behind the film's theory of Bush's involvement in Sept. 11 is based on an agenda focusing on a social and military reform only achievable by engaging in terrorist actions against one's country. The events in the film "V for Vendetta," in which a future government employs tactics of fear to achieve further social and military reforming endeavors, theoretically support the views suggested by "Loose Change."

While "Loose Change" may be well documented, it lacks fundamental examples supporting its claims of current applications involving sociopolitical reforms promoted by the Bush administration. Provided an objective perspective is supplied, the evidence may be apparent. President Bush decided to quit the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Patriot Act and secret wire-tapping, all focusing on varying aspects of dramatically altered social and military reforms.
..
Critical opinions of a leader could lead one to despair or glory. Regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with the film, there is an underlying message of keeping objectivity as a priority regarding our political leaders. Every insurgent leader blinded his nation, and in opposition to such radical behavior, our goal is to balance our nation as the people of this powerful democratic system.

By Jove, he's ALMOST got it!

The following email was sent to me by Scholars for 9/11 Truth member Nila Sagadevan. Its a little long, but well worth the read, given that he's corresponding with the head of a state Republican Committee.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I received an email from a gentleman who’s the head of a Republican Committee in Louisiana. It included the following:

“One has only to look at the videos of the buildings falling to see through your lie. I have watched dozens of buildings being demolished. They fall down all at once as all of the support structure is blown up. The WTC buildings both fell one story at a time, with each floor remaining in place until it is crushed by the enormous weight of the floors above coming down on it. A ten-year-old child can see the difference when shown the videos.”

My response (which you may decide to distribute widely):

Sir,

I see YOU’RE ALMOST THERE! You’ve almost proved it to yourself!

You said:

“The WTC buildings both fell one story at a time, with each floor remaining in place until it is crushed by the enormous weight of the floors above coming down on it.”

Now, just THINK about what you said for a moment.

Let’s presume that as the floors fell “one storey at a time”, each of the 110 floors momentarily resisted the floor falling upon it for just ONE SECOND.

After all, every one of these floors was supported by steel trusses, welds, rivets, bolts, etc., so let’s say EACH floor took at least ONE SECOND before it succumbed to the weight above it.

This would amount to a total of 110 seconds (I.e., 1 sec/floor), correct?

But let’s be outrageously charitable, and say each floor only resisted the floor falling upon it for HALF a second.

This would equal 55 seconds in sum, correct?

Now, roll your video.

Take out a STOPWATCH and time the collapse.

You’ll find that IT TOOK LESS THAN 10 SECONDS for the roof to strike the ground!

In fact, it took 9.4 seconds for the roof of the 110-storey North tower to hit the ground 1,350 feet below.

This would be IMPOSSIBLE if there was ANY KIND OF STRUCTURE resisting the falling mass!

Why?

Because 9.4 seconds is about how long it would take a BALL dropped from the roof of one of the towers — AND FALLING THROUGH AIR -- to strike the ground.

So how could the ROOF fall through 110 FLOORS and take the same amount of time to hit the ground as the BALL?

The ONLY way this could have happened would have been if every single vertical support beneath every falling floor was suddenly blown out of the way just before that floor impacted the one below it.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN A CONTROLLED DEMOLITION -- Explosives are used to BLAST the supports “out of the way” of the falling floors, so that the only resistance the falling mass experiences is THIN AIR!

Bottom line:

A SIMPLE STOPWATCH TELLS THE WHOLE STORY:

9.4 SECONDS!

Can’t you see it is IMPOSSIBLE for the ROOF of the tower to crash through 110 FLOORS in the same amount of time as a ball dropped from the roof?

It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE — without explosives.

YOU’RE ALMOST THERE, MAN... THINK!

Look closely at the photo below. Do you see the myriad little tooth-pick-like objects shooting UPWARDS and outwards?

THOSE ARE HEAVY STEEL BEAMS! Many of these beams were found OVER 300 FEET AWAY from the towers!

Do you see entire multi-beam ASSEMBLIES, each weighing several TONS, being blown out?

What was the force that caused all this? [GW: Here Nila shows a photo of debris being ejected far out horizontally from one of the collapsing Twin Towers]

OPEN YOUR EYES... And THINK!

Kind regards,
Nila"

Bush's Real Response to the August 6th PDB

Couple days late on this, sorry.

Ron Suskind, George W. Bush and the Aug. 6, 2001, PDB - salon.com

We've known for years now that George W. Bush received a presidential daily briefing on Aug. 6, 2001, in which he was warned: "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." We've known for almost as long that Bush went fishing afterward.

What we didn't know is what happened in between the briefing and the fishing, and now Suskind is here to tell us. Bush listened to the briefing, Suskind says, then told the CIA briefer: "All right. You've covered your ass, now."


Sounds like words from someone who had no idea something like 9/11 would occur soon eh?

A relevant quote from George Bush on the PDB:
"David, look, let me just say it again: Had I known there was going to be an attack on America, I would have moved mountains to stop the attack. I would have done everything I can. My job is to protect the American people. And I asked the intelligence agency to analyze the data to tell me whether or not we faced a threat internally, like they thought we had faced a threat in other parts of the world. That's what the PDB request was. And had there been actionable intelligence, we would have moved on it."
- George W. Bush, April 11th, 2004


Thanks Gold for the quote

9/11 Essays Disappearing from Web

Is it just me? Or have others been noticing that mainstream 9/11 stories are disappearing from the web.

Today, I noticed three mainstream stories which show up in Google cache (i.e. versions several days old), but not in the current version of the websites.

For example, the "UPI Hears" story about Morgan Reynolds has disappeared, and all links from Yahoo News and AOL to 911Truth.org's Zogby poll have turned up dry.

Even stranger, the Pravda story about the former commander-in-chief of the Russian Air Force saying that stand downs like happened on 9/11 don't normally happen in Russia has been replaced by a story about Blondes. Compare the original story at that site with the story that is there now. If you think I made a typo, click on the first version and delte all of the web archive portion of the url, i.e. start with the second "http".

Anyone else having this issue?

U.S. Congressional Candidate pursuing truth, trust, and transparency in 110th Congress

http://www.sendmeabuck.com/

On the eve of the 2006 summer, Oklahoma City was introduced to the only independent candidate for U.S. Congress from the 5th district. In a speech given before the Northwest Chamber, Matthew Horton Woodson illustrated the issue that he believes is the most critical for the 110th Congress. Citing Eisenhower's farewell speech candidate Woodson stressed the importance of an informed and knowledgeable public. To that end, bringing up 9/11/01, Woodson demonstrated the fact that the third and last tower to collapse before entering the "War on Terror" did so because of controlled demolition. Candidate Woodson held up a video recording of the collapse of 7 World Trade Center for the audience and his fellow candidates. This 47 story building collapsed in 6.5 seconds at 5:20pm on 9/11/01, a collapse that wasn't explained by the 9/11 Commission Report.

"Before February of 2006, I had never even realized a third tower collapsed on September 11, 2001" said Woodson. "It was amazing to me when I first saw the video of 7 World Trade Center collapsing, it looked like control demolition, so I decided to research it."

After 5 months of research, Woodson concluded that all three towers collapsed due to controlled demolition, and therefore must be a domestic crime. His research included a trip to Chicago to interview and obtain an endorsement from physicist Dr. Steven Jones of BYU. Dr. Jones has published a detailed paper proving the World Trade Center Towers collapsed due to controlled demolition. That paper can be found at: http://www.physics.byu.edu/research/energy/htm7.html

Woodson, decided to run for political office to help restore truth and trust back into our Government. This matter is so important to the very foundation of our Government, Woodson decided the best way to help save it was to participate in it. "At the Candidate forum hosted by the Northwest Chamber, I ensured that all but 2 candidates for U.S. Congress from the 5th district know about the collapse of 7 World Trade Center. It is up to them as to what they do with this information. I believe it's both the press and politicians' job to inform and alert the public; I hope my fellow candidates realize the awesome responsibility Congress holds in sending troops to war. As Congressman, when I ask someone to risk their life for my freedom, I am going to do all that is within my ability to assure them they are doing so based on facts that can be trusted. "

Lt. Colonel Mentions Shoot Down Orders on 9/11 on BBC



This is a followup to the submission we posted about here yesterday. This interview is in regards to protecting the World Cup.

We would expect that they might scramble fighters to intercept the aircraft, and if necessary - as we saw from 9/11 - possibly shoot down the aircraft.


I'm not sure how much can really be inferred from this clip alone, so take it for what you will.

Good job Eirik in tracking this down! Thanks to (_)sagi for the initial heads up as well.

President Bush Comments on The Lessons of September 11th

The following writeup is in response to comments made today by President Bush.

Remembering The "Lessons Of September The 11th" - yourbbsucks.com


President Bush seems to think that we have a poor memory. He seems to think that we're just not that bright.

We've got news for you President Bush. The "Lessons Of September The 11th" will be something we will NEVER forget.

Since 9/11, we have learned about things like what an "Anthrax Attack" is.

We've learned about organizations like "The Project For The New American Century", and the "Aspen Strategy Group".

We've learned that our media isn't interested in the truth.

We've learned that our Government is trying to take away our rights granted to us by the Constitution, and whatever you consider to be "The Creator".

We've learned about companies like Halliburton, and Bechtel.

We've learned that corporations like them control our Government.

We've learned what it means to be abandoned on your own soil.

We've learned what happens when your Government lies you into war.

We've EVEN learned what it means to torture a child.

As memorable as these lessons are President Bush, the worst "Lesson Of September The 11th" we've had to learn is the fact that...

YOU LIED TO US ABOUT IT!!!

So you see President Bush... we're not as forgetful as you think we are.

MUJCA Coordinator Questions Secret Service on Kentucky Gun Confiscation

Follow the link for the whole story:

http://mujca.com/secretservice.htm

Emailed to: http://www.ustreas.gov/usss/contact_usss.shtml

Public Relations Office
United States Secret Service

To Whom It May Concern,

It has come to my attention that Michael Cook, a Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth activist in Kentucky, has been visited by four of your agents, and that his lawfully-possessed firearms have been twice confiscated as the result of an email statement Mr. Cook made concerning our twice-unelected, World Trade Center destroying pseudo-President. Mr. Cook's email statement made no threat, but simply predicted: "Eventually he (Bush) will be shot for treason."

I am writing because I am concerned that Mr. Cook's statement may be incorrect, and I wish to request Secret Service guidelines about how I may correct Mr. Cook's mistake without running afoul of your agents. As I understand it, the usual penalty for treason is hanging, not death by firing squad. In that case, it is likely that Mr. Bush will be hanged, not shot, for treason.
...
I appreciate the difficulty you guys must be having doing your job right now, with tens of millions of Americans calling for Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and company to be prosecuted and (presumably) executed for 9/11 high treason. With almost half the country believing the official 9/11 story is a cover-up (Zogby poll, May 2006) it won't be long before an overwhelming majority of Americans joins Mr. Cook in eagerly anticipating Bush's execution--which will put you fellas in a difficult position. Maybe it's time to save the country a lot of heartache, and rat out whoever it was in the SS who kept Bush at that school in Florida long after the second plane hit the building.
...
Sincerely,

Kevin Barrett

MiddleEast.Org mentions widespread 9/11 skepticism in America

http://www.middleeast.org

When pressed in public American officials say they are not building 'permanent bases' in Iraq. But then just what is the definition of 'permanent bases' and just where are all those billions going and what are all those contractors doing in Iraq? Americans officials have certainly earned considerable skepticism and disbelief about what they say -- to say the least! Nearly half of the American public do not even believe the official 9/11 story and when asked by pollsters says another investigation not run by government is needed.

Thanks to Erik for sending this in.

The Dark Side on PBS

Sorry for the late notice on this:

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/darkside/

Jun. 20, 2006 at 9pm CST / 10pm EST
After 9/11, Vice President Richard Cheney seized the initiative. He pushed to expand executive power, transform America's intelligence agencies and bring the war on terror to Iraq. But first he had to take on George Tenet's CIA for control over intelligence.

Catch it if you can.

Nicholas Levis and John Albanese Visit Laura Ingraham at Fox News

Nicholas Levis on FoxNews - By John Albanese

On Sunday June 18th Nicholas Levis asked that I accompany him to a scheduled interview to be taped for a new FoxNews television pilot featuring Laura Ingraham. In the hours preceding the interview we rehearsed the essential talking points to hit on in the 5-minute segment we were apportioned by FoxNews.

We arrived at noon and were quickly escorted to the greenroom where various ‘handlers’ kept us engaged in conversation. Everyone was very nice. In fact, when we were approached by Associate Producer Mina Pertesis she appeared to go out of her way to inform us that she had spent some time reviewing Nicholas’ work, and actually was of the personal opinion that the issues he raised were legitimate. She claimed that the issue of 9/11 appeared to indeed be a serious one, and that questions being raised by 911Truth.org and summeroftruth.org were making her think! She quickly produced business cards, claiming that, should this TV pilot in fact be picked up by Fox, they would be interested in booking me as a guest. She claimed to recognize my name, and seemed sincerely interested and unbiased in her approach.

Gee whiz – perhaps Fox is not the evil Orwellian Ministry of Disinformation after all, despite the multiple television monitors in the room that were tuned to Foxnews (how could they not be?), informing us over and over and over again of cyanide attacks planned for the NYC subways, accompanied by scary images of masked Islamic fundamentalists wielding bazookas, and of course, stock footage of North Korean missiles taking off over and over and over again……. with Fox’s patented bright red NEWS ALERT! logo blinking incessantly throughout the day.

But at approximately 12:30 things took a surrealistic turn. (As if sitting in the evil corporate citadel of crypto-fascism was not surrealistic enough for me.) A meticulously dressed man arrived who immediately recognized Nicholas, and began handing out business cards identifying him as “Griffin Jenkins – Producer – The Tony Snow Show.”

I supposed “the Griff” (as he referred to himself) had not yet had a chance to get new business cards, considering that Tony Snow is now the White House Press Secretary, and “the Griff” should be out of a job.

“The Griff” appeared to take a special liking to us. In fact, the next hour was spent sitting in the green room and answering his interrogation….errrr……. friendly questions. He appeared very sincere and likeable, and also appeared to have an in-depth understanding of the material we were presenting, referring to Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer as “Tony” and Curt Weldon on a personal level, as he outlined his own relationships to these men. Nicholas Levis was in top form, making his usual eloquent and articulate case for 9/11 complicity, and “the Griff” appeared to be soaking it all up, with his unexplained sidekick, as the hours ticked by.

Hours.

Finally, at 2pm we were escorted into the studio for Nicholas’ interview.

I suppose I could call Laura Ingraham a whore. Because that is in fact what she is. Think “Bill O’Reilly wannabe on psychotropic drugs.” There was not even a hint of fair play. She framed the interview by claiming the Chicago Conference was attended by an assortment of “conspiracy theory” loonies – including a man who lives in a cave. (I shit you not) When Nicholas objected, she became hostile and commenced projecting opinions onto him with questions like, “When did you stop beating your wife,” while repeatedly cutting off Nicholas’ responses, and providing him with the answers herself.

And of course, we were out of time.

Upon completion of the interview I hurled a few friendly opinions at Laura from behind the camera. “Disgraceful,” “Ambush Journalism,” “Disrespect for her audience.” I suggested to her that she is underestimating the anger of the 9/11 Truth community, and that America is very tired of this form of ambush journalism, and we would all be watching her ratings very closely. Her eyes simply responded with glib indifference. Just one more skanky blonde ubber-right-wing Ann Coulter wannabe, shitting all over the national stage she has been given, and essentially using her journalism degree for toilet tissue.

“The Griff” walked us out, assuring us that ‘his’ work is very different from Laura’s, and that he was sincerely interested in keeping tabs on us. He would like to know what 9/11 Truth has planned for the future, and actually invited me to submit whatever materials I could directly to his attention. He appeared very sincere and likeable. Such a nice guy. He apologized and assured us that he would share our disappointment with Laura. He was very nice and appeared sincerely regretful for how things had gone. He was really full of it.

We spent about 20 minutes talking about the fate of journalists in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. We talked about the nature of fascism, and the failed policy of information ‘control.’ I shared with him the fact that a nobody like me could produce an amateur film that, within two weeks, made the Google Top 100 list, while FoxNews attempts to purchase increasing shares of a shrinking market. And lastly, I reminded “the Griff” why we were there. The 3,000 dead. And I asked him to consider the anger of the American public. He nodded his agreement. He was, after all, such an amiable and sincere guy.

One final note. I encourage you all to Google “Griffin Jenkins.” As Tony Snow’s producer one would expect his identity to be fairly well documented. Hell, even MY name produces thousands of hits.

I found very little on “the Griff.” The ONLY story I found, repeated multiple times on Google, was that he donated $2,000 to the Bush Cheney reelection campaign – because that’s what journalists do.

Only ONE reference to “the Griff” on Google. Funny that.

Another non-being from the Ministry of Disinformation, simply doing his job. And a really nice guy at that.

Flight 93 Shootdown Mentioned on BBC News?

We have no confirmation on this information, but it seems legit. If you can vouch for the validity of the information, or better yet can provide the video, let us know.

9/11 Shanksville shootdown reference on BBC 6 o\'clock news 19.6.06
I am writing to you about an interesting quote from BBC's 6 o'clock news from Monday 19th of June 2006.

I am paraphrasing as I do not have the recording, and was told about it by my parents (both wide awake to the reality of terrorism et al) so forgive any mis-quotes. However, they were both so taken aback that they questioned one another as to what they'd heard, and called me later in the evening, as they knew I would be interested. I do not have TV, but do have broadband internet, and have since checked the online recordings, more about that anon...

There was a seemingly live piece from an AWACS aircraft (requested by German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble from NATO, and piloted by US Airforce servicemen) 30,000ft above Germany detailing how they were doing constant sorties to protect the World Cup fans against possible terrorist attacks, specifically from hijacked airliners, a la 911.

The correspondent asked one of the radar operators a number of questions, leading to the obvious question
'What will you do should you detect a rogue aircraft?'.
The obvious answer followed 'Scramble a couple of fighters to intercept and attempt to make contact'.
The final question; 'And if you get no response?'
Answer; 'IT WILL BE SHOT DOWN AS WAS DONE ON 9/11'

No hesitation, no retraction, no awkward body language from either correspondent or operator, just back to the studio.

I didn't find out about this until about 11pm, after my parents had watched the 10 o'clock news. They were pretty certain that it was a different take at 10, or another live Q&A, without the final Q&A's, ending on sending up an interceptor.

[..]

I have been trying to find the footage all day before contacting you, and continue to do so, but maybe you will have better luck if you out out a request on your site or during radio airtime. My partner's mother works in the 'media' and has told me that the BBC will charge 75GBP for an footage, independant of length, so 150GBP should secure the 6 & 10 o'clock stock, should you wish to go that route. We are all considering this, should all other searching fail.

Please make this information available in some form, if only as a mention on your show and site, as it will add to the body of evidence, and it might be possible to track down the operator for further interview. It suggests that either the Flight 93 shoot-down is common knowledge amongst at least AWACS crews in NATO/USAF, or this fellow was one of/knows one of the airmen privy to the reality of the 911 operations.

With best regards, Peace & Love,

Mike Malloy on Gatekeeping



On his June 19th, 2006 broadcast, Mike Malloy really let it rip over online media outlets that will not allow a free and open discussion regarding two of the most important topics facing Americans:

1. The very real possibility that Election Fraud has taken place in the last 3 national elections. (Salon is discussed in particular.)

2. Skepticism of the official line regarding the events of September the 11th. (Daily Kos is singled out on this topic.)

Anyhow, Malloy doesn't want us bloggers putting words in his mouth, so check it out for yourself.

Jimmy Walter Interview and Presentation at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan

Jimmy Walter at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan - Yumi Kikuchi’s Blog

I hope you will listen to Jimmy Walter's presentation at The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan that is included here.

Jimmy arrived the evening of June 14 at Narita Airport. We were there to greet him but he didn't come out of the security gate until one hour after his plane landed. We were quite nervous until we met him, wondering all the while if he had been stopped at immigration by the Japanese police or something like that.

Jimmy has had many attacks, death threats, his house broken into, computers stolen, etc. But he is here now with us... What an honor to have such a wonderful human being who devotes his life to saving not only America but also the entire world from the real terror!

This is the joy of doing peace work... You keep meeting wonderful people. I am so blessed.

Enjoy and learn from his presentation!


Thanks Heiner for the heads up!

Mike Berger of 911truth.org on Scarborough Country - Video Download



Mike Berger from 911truth.org was on Scarborough Country tonight on MSNBC. Scarborough was out tonight, and was replaced by Michael Smerconish.

While MSNBC did play the collapse of WTC7 on national TV, something that has maybe happened once since 9/11, the video footage they provided was poor. While I only saw the clip we are hosting above and not the live feed on TV, it appears the clip of WTC7 they played was one of the worst out there. For those unfamiliar with the WTC7 collapse, you can find more video clips here and here.

The second guest brought in towards the end of the segment was Steve Emerson. Mr. Emerson quickly came on in an effort to 'bring some sanity to the conversation' as Mr. Smerconish put it.

So, here is what Mr. Emerson said:
Listen, in any catastrophe your going to have sometimes irreconcilable statements because people's memories aren't.. aren't.. exactly accurate, they don't reconcile each other all the time, they don't confirm each other. However, in the statements that this man just made, I can tell you one that FEMA definitely, Federal Emergency Management Association [sic], definitely concluded that World Trade Center building number 7 collapsed because of the collapse of number 1.


And here is what the source he is quoting here actually said:
FEMA Chapter 5: WTC 7 - page 5-1
The performance of WTC 7 is of significant interest because it appears the collapse was due primarily to fire, rather than any impact damage from the collapsing towers.
FEMA Chapter 5: WTC 7 - page 5-31
The specifics of the fires in WTC 7 and how they caused the building to collapse remain unknown at this time. [..] the best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurance.


Now whose memory isn't exactly accurate? To make my point clear, FEMA didn't definitely say building 7 collapsed due to the collapse of building 1 - in fact they said the exact opposite.

I'm not here to argue the point that WTC7 was a controlled demolition, I'm here to make the point that the people they bring on these shows to make a counter argument have no issue with manufacturing their own data - exactly what they generally blame 'conspiracy theorists' for doing.

Check out the clip, watch for more information via the Scarborough Country website, send them in some feedback, and post some comments here - in that exact order.

Flashback: Watch Tucker Carlson invent his own reasoning for why WTC7 collapsed.

Big thanks to Mike and Jon Gold for the video grabs!

Great Danes

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2006/06/great-danes.html

I have long heard rumors about Danish experts saying that there were bombs in the Twin Towers . . . but I couldn't track down the source material until now. I've finally found it.

Initially, Danish bomb expert Brent Lund really did say that explosives brought down the Twin Towers:

In an interview in a leading Danish newspaper, Lund said that bombs must have been detonated inside the World Trade Center complex in order to make the Towers collapse in the manner they did

And in a TV interview, Lund stated that "there apparently have been explosives set in the World Trade Center, that's responsible for the entire collapse, otherwise the towers would not collapse the way they did . . . ."

Additionally, the former chief of NATO, Denmark's Kjeld Hillingsøe, really did ask in a TV interview whether explosives brought down the Twin Towers

Thanks to "JointPlays" for both leads and translation."

The Chronicle of Higher Education Covers Academics Who Question 9/11

Professors of Paranoia? - Academics give a scholarly stamp to 9/11 conspiracy theories - chronicle.com

Nearly five years have gone by since it happened. The trial of Zacarias Moussaoui is over. Construction of the Freedom Tower just began. Oliver Stone's movie about the attacks is due out in theaters soon. And colleges are offering degrees in homeland-security management. The post-9/11 era is barreling along.

And yet a whole subculture is still stuck at that first morning. They are playing and replaying the footage of the disaster, looking for clues that it was an "inside job." They feel sure the post-9/11 era is built on a lie.

In recent months, interest in September 11-conspiracy theories has surged. Since January, traffic to the major conspiracy Web sites has increased steadily. The number of blogs that mention "9/11" and "conspiracy" each day has climbed from a handful to over a hundred.

Why now?

Oddly enough, the answer lies with a soft-spoken physicist from Brigham Young University named Steven E. Jones, a devout Mormon and, until recently, a faithful supporter of George W. Bush.

Last November Mr. Jones posted a paper online advancing the hypothesis that the airplanes Americans saw crashing into the twin towers were not sufficient to cause their collapse, and that the towers had to have been brought down in a controlled demolition. Now he is the best hope of a movement that seeks to convince the rest of America that elements of the government are guilty of mass murder on their own soil.

His paper — written by an actual professor who works at an actual research university — has made him a celebrity in the conspiracy universe. He is now co-chairman of a group called the Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which includes about 50 professors — more in the humanities than in the sciences — from institutions like Clemson University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wisconsin.

But even as Mr. Jones's title and academic credentials give hope to the conspiracy theorists, his role in the movement may undermine those same credentials. What happens when science tries to function in a fringe crusade?

Loose Change Rep. Open Letter to Michael Meacher After Cancelling Loose Change Parliament Screening

Oh well - loosechange911.com

Dear Michael

I hadn't expected to write this letter on the evening of what should have been a cataclysmic event in the life of Britains Parliament, but I was called today by a Dutch TV Producer, who stated that your office are claiming that I wrote the story in Broadcast about the screening of Loose Change 2 to Parliament. I hope he misinterpreted your offices comments, as you know, I know and the journalist who wrote the story know that this is not true.

That said, regarding your decision to cancel the screening of Loose Change 2 to Parliament. I believe that with Dylan's film, David Ray Griffin's expert testimony, your backing and my organisational ability to pull all this together, we have missed an opportunity to expose the truth of 9/11 in a controlled, managed manner to one of the few audiences that has the power to effect change.
..
In conclusion please also consider the comments of Martin Luther King. His eloquence speaks louder than (my insignificant) words:

"A time comes when silence is betrayal. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought within one's own bosom and in the surrounding world...."

"Some of us who have already begun to break the silence of the night have found that the calling to speak is often a vocation of agony, but we must speak. We must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to our limited vision, but we must speak".



Thanks John for the heads up!

San Francisco Event on June 20th

Press Release:

Film Preview - Report Back on the 9/11 Truth Movement

The film “Who Killed John O’Neil?,”and Jimmy Walter, millionaire philanthropist, who has been lobbying for a genuine 9/11 investigation in Europe, South America and Asia, film producer- Ty Rauber, organizers, speakers, and participants from the Chicago 9/11 Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming the Future Conference (http://www.911revealingthetruth.org) will all be featured at an educational event on Tuesday, June 20th, 7 pm- 10 pm, 2nd Floor, Room 219, San Francisco War Memorial Building, 401 Van Ness at McAllister, sponsored by American Legion Post 310, Veteran’s for Peace Chapter 69, and the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.

Activists and press are invited to attend this free event which will highlight Ty Rauber’s film, “Who Killed John O’Neil?,”which looks deeply into the crime of September 11th and the soul splintering effects it has upon one man trying to understand what happened. The world premiere of the film took place over the weekend of June 2-4th at the Chicago Conference which drew over 600 people from all over the United States, Europe and Canada, and garnered attention from the New York Times, Italian television, and a greater number of alternative and mainstream news sources. A recent Zogby poll has shown that the country is divided on believing the official narrative of 9/11 and that there has been a cover-up of 9/11.

Jimmy Walter, a philanthropist has spent millions of dollars on advertising to promote the campaign to Reopen the 911 Investigation. who funded the Omission Commission in Manhattan- Confronting the Evidence - A Call to Reopen the 9/11 Investigation, in 2004, and organized a European 9/11 Truth Tour in 2005 will report on his recent efforts. He has gone to Venezuela, Malaysia, and Japan, to lobby for an International Commission to Investigate 9/11, and is speaking in Japan today on this issue. (http://www.reopen911.org).

The Chicago Conference sponsored by 911truth.org and Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance (Mujca.com) drew together an incredibly diverse range of people, united by a common desire for truth and transparency. Organizer Janice Matthews said,

“What we learned most clearly in Chicago is that we are many, we are committed, and we are growing in number."

Participants from the Chicago Conference who will also say a few words include- Film Producer Ty Rauber; Ken Jenkins, videographer, who has produced many DVDs, especially highlighting the work of David Ray Griffin, and who shared the stage in Chicago with George W. Bush's former Chief Economist at the US Department of Labor, asking the question, “What was supposed to happen on 9/11/2001 and didn’t that has permitted researchers to understand 9/11 as a “failed special operation?” Bonnie Faulkner, producer of KPFA’s Guns and Butter, interviewed and taped the keynote speakers and whistleblowers that cast new light upon September 11th. Carol Brouillet, Green Party Congressional candidate, helped organize the kick-off rally and march in downtown Chicago, and focused on strategy, and the new wave of candidates challenging Congress for their failure to protect the Constitution, and to rein in a criminal regime. Together, speakers will address the future of the 9-11 Truth Movement, which they hope will help redirect resources and policy away from war, and towards healing and peace.

Blogcritics.org Posts DVD Review of Loose Change Second Edition

DVD Review: Loose Change Second Edition - Blogcritics.org

Perfunctory conspiracy theory slathered and drowned in conjecture? Yes, there’s plenty of conjecture, the same type of pedestrian and Fox-newsian we-report-you-decide type of inference that inflict the intellectual with vomit-inducing aversion. But the arguments presented in the documentary, Loose Change Second Edition, are compelling to say the least.
..
The film looks into just about all the angles one can think of and digs into them with an unforgiving cadence. He doesn’t start with 9/11 itself and then spider outward with his debunking. Au contraire, he begins with Cuba in the 60s and plans by the American government to crash drone planes in Cuba and then claim a passenger plane filled with students was shot down by the Cubans. Plans that were derogated by Kennedy who soon fired Lyman Lemnitzer, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, who came up with the plot.

The movie then starts unfurling huge amounts of data in a timeline until it leads to 9/11/2001, but not before revealing a document released in September of 2000 by a thinktank called The Project for a New American Century. The document, called Rebuilding America’s Defenses, stipulates “the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor” (Page 50-51).

Members of this thinktank include Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Jeb Bush, and Paul Wolfowitz. If that doesn’t reek of conspiracy, I don’t know what does, but one must remain skeptical and critical. There’s much more meat to chew on in this introductory timeline alone, but to run them all here would make this review far too dispendious of your time.
..
Just my blurting it out like this simply doesn’t do the film justice. Avery isn’t simply rambling on about conspiracies. The man did his homework. He piles the evidence on sharply and efficiently and doesn’t infer but states his opinion clearly for all to hear. But the documentary is simply an over-sized PowerPoint slide-show presentation and this constitutes its weak point. But having made this film with loose change, it would be difficult to expect more.

This film, as anything that criticizes the actions of the government following the attacks, is harshly criticized itself. But the film’s detractors' arguments also stand up as well. I won’t go into them here because there are far too many of them. To look them up, start with a Wikipedia search of Loose Change.

The factuality of the film’s arguments is in question, no doubt. You get a feeling from the film that the reason for the carpet bombing of evidence and facts is a tool to distract the viewer from seeing the manipulation of evidence and quotes to achieve a desired result or conclusion not unlike an O’Reilly Factor episode.

Tim Russert Interviewed by Jack Blood and Questioned on 9/11

Tim Russert Interviewed by Jack Blood - youtube.com

Wow. Tim Russert from Meet the Press was on Deadline Live with Jack Blood on June the 14th. The interview available above is about 10 minutes long, and in the last couple of minutes Jack Blood brings up 9/11 with Russert. Russert makes a few statements of opinion and then drops off the line with phone troubles.

In any event, an insightful interview with Tim Russert, perhaps he will feel encouraged to take a second look at 9/11.

ABC Affiliate Covers Steven Jones Presentation at Salt Lake Community College

This is actually a couple of weeks old, but new to us.

BYU physics professor says WTC towers were bombed from inside - abc4.com

A BYU physics professor is spreading his controversial theory about the collapse of the Twin Towers in New york City on 9/11. He doesn't think they were caused merely by the impact of planes that flew into them, or the fires that resulted.

Professor Stephen Jones says it looks like the towers fell due to explosives placed inside. He analyzes the way the towers fell, including a third building at the World Trade Center.

Jones also looks closely at the hot metal found underneath the rubble, and says it appears the columns on lower floors were cut with explosives almost simultaneously.

Professor Jones presented his hypothesis for students at Salt Lake Community College's Sandy Center.

Some critics, including Jones' own colleagues at BYU, claim professor Jones' hypothesis is deeply flawed.

Unquestioned Answers

David Ray Griffin in a Northern California publication which caters to the wine and cheese crowd.

People were hearing his message--the essentials of which are that our government likely knew about or had something to do with the 9-11 attacks--and yet there was something about his delivery that was reassuring. I've heard David Ray Griffin twice since then, once at a small gathering of world government advocates, the other time at the prestigious Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. Each event had a similar ambiance: a calm, thoughtful, scholarly presentation without the least hint of sensationalism or personal glory.

Whatever one's assumption of what a "conspiracy theorist" is like, David Ray Griffin doesn't fit the mold, perhaps because he's really a nonconspiracy theorist. While he methodically deconstructs the official story, he doesn't spin his own alternative yarn to fill the vacuum. Instead, he allows audience members to draw their own conclusions. As for conspiracy theories, he explains, "the official story is itself a conspiracy theory. As the accepted 'conspiracy theory' goes, a cadre of al Qaida operatives conspired to hijack four jetliners, did so undetected and were able to complete their mission with no interception or even interference from the best-prepared air force on the face of the earth."
..
Other than standing for his faith, what does Griffin hope to accomplish by exposing the 9-11 story as a lie? As an advocate for a worldwide democratic order, he sees this story as an example of "governmental lawlessness" so egregious that its exposure could call into question the continuation of the present system with its "anarchical competition between nation states." First, however, people must be willing to think the unthinkable, and to be willing to look at the evidence that it is our own nation that has become the evil empire.

Jesse Questions Why 9/11 Attacks Originated From Boston

Flying a Plane Into the World Trade Center? Why Not Fly Out of LaGuardia? - tvnewslies.org

Here is a new, and so far unasked question about the badly debunked official explanation of the events of September 11th 2001. If you spend years planning a spectacular attack the World Trade Center in New York City, and you are a less than adequate pilot, and you wanted to ensure the attack would be completed without giving the U.S. air defense apparatus the chance to follow their normal procedures and intercept your plane, why would you choose to fly out of Boston? Why would you choose to risk getting lost or stopped as you try to fly 190 miles to your target when you can hijack a plane from one of three airports within sight of the target?

New Opinion Editorial on 9/11 on Aljazeerah.info

9/11 and the Fictional War on Terrorism - aljazeerah.info

In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks on the United States I raised serious doubts in regards to who was responsible. It would appear that we are finally closing in on the truth. Many aspects of the attacks do not add up according to The Bush Administrations evaluation of events which transpired in Washington and New York and leave a great many questions unanswered and unaddressed. Several independent sources have challenged the government line presenting convincing arguments which challenge the official explanation. Many of these have been dismissed out of hand as crazy conspiracy theories by “left wing crazies”; however individuals and bodies of high repute and renown are coming forward making their suspicions public. My initial analysis was that the Bush Neo-Conservatives led by Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld long planned for a massive external threat to the American “homeland” in order to pursue an agenda of pre-emptive military strikes against Middle Eastern States and regime change. Their objective being the control of Middle Eastern oil reserves and regime change in Islamic States through the use of military supremacy. The truth is catching up with the perpetrators of what amounts to the greatest political conspiracy of our times.

The former Director of the Criminal Justice Centre at the National Centre for Policy Analysis Mr Morgan Reynolds showed that the Bush Administration conspired to create a false cover story of suicide hijackings in order to “blow the World Trade Centre to Kingdom come” with explosives – a shock and awe psych-op designed to coerce the American people (and the West) into supporting a pre-planned “long war” in the Middle East, massive increases in military spending, and the roll back of constitutional liberties.

Five years after the event that changed the course of American International relations and the foreign policy of western nations in general, serious questions remain as to who was responsible for 9/11. The crime that changed global relations, the course of American foreign policy and caused America to self proclaim itself immune to International laws, treaties and the UN. Those responsible for the September 11 attacks are on the brink of being exposed and tried for high treason and mass murder. They are responsible for orchestrating an act of terrorism against their own people for express political and corporate reasons. In fabricating a fictional enemy and instigating a “war on terrorism”, America has granted itself the right to wage pre-emptive war against sovereign States deemed to be acting against the national interest or judged to present some kind of threat to national security.
..
There exists today an extensive “Truth Movement” which is determined to expose the facts in regards to who was responsible for the attacks on New York and Washington. Once the perpetrators ie, the neo-Conservatives acting in concert with Israel, are brought to justice we shall witness the greatest constitutional crisis in US history. That the truth will amount to political dynamite is indisputable and difficult for most to entertain. It is the stuff of which revolutions are made. However the sooner those responsible are exposed and prosecuted, the sooner the world will be a safer place.

What's The Truth - Final Edition

A message from Dem Bruce Lee Styles:

First off I want to say a massive huge mega thanks to everyone who’s helped spread “What’s The Truth?: How Indeed Did the Twin Towers Collapse?”, that alone was worth putting the thing together. I’m just so pleased people even felt it made the grade enough to be recommended out to others. A couple of guys have asked for a high-res version of the film so it can be burnt to DVD and played full screen. So there’s now a high quality 900mb version available, I haven’t been able to test it on a big TV screen yet (because I don’t have a DVD burner), but I have tested it full screen on a 12 x 9 inch PC flat screen monitor, and it looks fine. But if anyone who does have access to a DVD burner wants to have a go and test it out on a big TV screen. And post back the results of how it went in the comments section below for this thread that would be greatly appreciated.

Also the final corrected version of “What’s The Truth?” is up on 911Podcasts, basically every single little crease has been ironed out, so although it’s only little details, the overall quality is better. So I just want to ask people if they’ve got the film up on google video, torrents or are hosting it etc. That if they get the time, could they try and swap round the old version with the final one? If that’s possible it would be great, because the new version up on 911Podcasts is really what I intended the film to be like, with no little mistakes in it.

Hats off to DBLS for creating this documentary, the response has been tremendous.
Check it out here:

What Does A Thinking, Ethical Person Do with the Nightmare Facts of 9/11?

http://www.stoplying.ca/articles/june06/justdoit061406.htm

by Dr. Joe Hawkins - stoplying.ca
June 13, 2006

Today, I sit here at home listening to a recent interview between Dr. Fetzer and Dr. Griffin. Two "seasoned" 911 truth veterans. The fact that I am listening to this conversation, that it even exists, is evidence that an impending Fascist state is eminent. There have been dramatic inroads for the 911-truth movement in America, Canada and around the world. It would seem the dam is starting to crack. These are all good things and the battle for basic truth and the salvation of humanity hangs in the balance between self-evident facts and the brain washed masses.
...
So, what is a thinking person to do with the nightmare facts of 911? Share the truth; share the truth with everyone you know, in every medium you know (dvds, articles, web sites etc.), and everywhere you know. Put them in mail boxes, put them under doors, put them on street corners, put them on your boss's desk, on your teacher's desk or put a thousand copies on the desk of your local politician. The only way society will heal, truly heal, is to get the truth out. A disease never heals when the person ignores it or is in denial of it. Rather it is fundamental to a healthy psychology to embrace reality, not embrace the illusion. While I recognize that denial does have temporary health benefits as one seeks to face the truth, ultimately one must face it. Or the denial turns into cancer, heart disease or some other horrible pathology.

Gypsy and Chuck have founded a new yahoo group entitled Get the Word Out 9/11. Here are the goals of this new (and hopefully growing) group of activists:

Gypsy and I have started a new 911 movement group called "Get the Word out 911" This movement will only work out in pubic to tell others about what really happen on 911. F... the mainstream media refuse to let this material be play. We are going to play the 911 materal out in pubic our selves. We have already implemented one of our first events called "Operation Let's Roll", and we inform about 1000 people that were not aware of 911 Cover-up. They also take home two DVD's, 911 In Plane site and Loose change 2E. We also have other 911 DVD's, and Books available with us as well. We are working on getting "Operation Let's Roll" all around the country, in the hope to make about 10,000 people that were not aware of 911 per day.

The only way society will heal, truly heal, is to get the truth out. A disease never heals when the person ignores it or is in denial of it. Rather it is fundamental to a healthy psychology to embrace reality, not embrace the illusion. While I recognize that denial does have temporary health benefits as one seeks to face the truth, ultimately one must face it. Or the denial turns into cancer, heart disease or some other horrible pathology.

We live in a time when a person risks going insane to live in truth because it is so intense on so many levels. Hence the engineered and natural denial. Imagine (like we have to imagine?) growing up in a society with rampant pornography, guns, mass media lies, GMO's, pharmaceutical monopolies, the realization of the "Fourth Reich's Reichstag Fire" and a ballooning independent media with information that makes a soul seek sanity from the volume and depth of the horrors that are being reported. Not only does the truth hurt, it can kill. Just ask the family of John O'Neil. The ex FBI agent who was head of security for the WTC and died on 9/11. A man who had spoken at great length about impending terrorist strikes on America. He quit the FBI due to the lack of response by his superiors. John O' Neil was the Deputy Director of the FBI. This speaks volumes to anyone with a brain.

So the question remains. What are you doing? This is the mother of all issues, it overshadows every other critical issue. It is more important than health care, more important than jobs or any other community issue. It is a joke to have to explain this to people. I always end up saying "if even one thing I am saying here is true, just one, it deserves the fullest attention of everyone".
..
So what does it take for the soul who is reading this, to stop what they are doing and take action in their community? Really, what would it take to raise the alarm bells? I am a breath away from buying a bullhorn (in solidarity with Alex Jones) and standing outside the local CBC Winnipeg office. Why not? We all soon will be dead and subject to a police state. Look at what Harper is doing in concert with George W. Bush. They are two Fascist peas in a pod, each with a brain the size of a pea.

Ripe for the Picking

Paul Craig Roberts says that a third of the American people still believe that Iraq was connected with 9/11.

911Truth.org's national poll shows that 42% of all Americans question the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission.

So what does it all mean?

Well, maybe it means that we should focus most of our energies on reaching the one-third who are so brainwashed that they believe that Saddam and Bin Laden got together and planned the 9/11 attacks. Roberts points out that these same people also are apt to believe that we found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

In other words, these people are ripe for the picking. These are people who don't even know that the 9/11 commission said there was no connection between Iraq and 9/11, who never got the word that no WMDs were ever found in Iraq.

In other words, start with WMDs and then move into Saddam's [non]-role in 9/11. From there, lead your uninformed friend to the evidence that the emperor's cronies intentionally made a false link between Iraq and 9/11.

By now, your listener may be open to hearing 9/11 truth (i.e. that 9/11 was an inside job), which is the one thing which has the power to save our country.

Do you agree? Or do you think that this one-third is "unreachable"?

9/11: Press for Truth Picked up by MercuryMedia

MercuryMedia Takes On 9/11 Doc - worldscreen.com

MercuryMedia is continuing its acquisitions drive, picking up the rights to the 48-minute special 9/11: Press For Truth from New York-based DTT Documentaries.

The film tells the story of four 9/11 widows known as “The Jersey Girls” who fought for the official investigation into the attacks. The women have been in the news again recently following controversial remarks about them by right-wing commentator Anne Coulter.

“This is a great 9/11 documentary,” said Jason McGeown, the marketing and acquisitions Manager at Mercury. “There are lots of questions to be answered by the American government and this film raises them in a responsible and level-headed manner. Not only is this a valuable addition to the catalogue, it also increases the 9/11 programming that we can offer broadcasters. With Loose Change 2 now the most downloaded film in history, accumulating 6 million online views, and CTVC’s Victim 0001, which focuses on Father Mychal Judge, the NY Fire Department Chaplain who died in the attacks, we can give the networks some real choice for the fifth anniversary of the 2001 tragedy.”


I am anxiously waiting to find out if this film will be promoted by the Jersey Girls, if so this new film could make some big waves later this year.

Thanks Erik for the heads up!

Vermont Green Party 9/11 Resolution

Make 9-11 truth the first article of impeachment of Bush & Cheney
Impeachment Resolution, April 23, 2006

The Vermont Green Party affirms its 2003 resolution that President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney should be impeached.

The President continues to commit crimes against peace and humanity, assuming the powers of an imperial president unaccountable to law, and usurping powers of the Congress, Judiciary, and those reserved to the People of the United States, and violating the civil rights of U.S. Citizens and those of other nations.

Further, revealing Bush administration complicity in the terrorist attacks of 9-11 and the massive nationwide election fraud of 2004 are to be put in the forefront of the overall drive for impeachment...

Continued at link.

Not exactly breaking news, but I had a hard time finding this resolution online. Google "Vermont Green Party" and you get a lot of links to the "Vermont Progressive Party", which is not the same group.

Here are related comments delivered at a press conference of May 4, 2006 in the Cedar Creek Room of the Vermont Statehouse in Montpelier, by Acting Secretary, GPoV, John Darc.

William Rodriguez Brings "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" to Conference in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

The Nature of Prejudice

On June 2, 2006 William Rodriguez confirmed for me that he would be presenting my film "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" to The International Islamic Conference in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia.

In the days that followed I struggled with my own personal prejudices and concerns about American perceptions. Did I really want my film showing at an Islamic Conference?

This lapse of reason is a powerful reminder of the power of propaganda in the wake of 9/11, and how it has served to demonize an entire religion and a people. Even I, a 9/11 Truth activist, continue to struggle with my own prejudices.

So, for those of us unfamiliar with this conference, this is (in part) their declaration:

"We reaffirm our commitment to the principles and true teachings of Islam which abhor aggression, value peace, tolerance and respect as well as prohibiting the killing of innocent people."

I am ashamed of myself. I am honored that William Rodriguez has chosen to present my film at this summit, and I thank those worldwide who fearlessly continue to toil in the name of peace. I ask all those involved in this movement to continue to fearlessly strive for peace, social justice and 9/11 Truth.

- John Albanese

FBI Tipped Off about 9/11

The following tip was submitted to the FBI via their website at 6.40pm GMT yesterday, Monday 12th June, 2006 by a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth . . .

Sirs,

This is a tip-off insofar as it draws your attention to publicly-available, corroborated, and incontrovertible (or, I believe in your terms 'hard') evidence, which could form the basis of an important investigation. I have reason to believe that such an investigation would in no way be a waste of the FBI's valuable time.

I refer you to respected physicist Prof. Steven E. Jones' paper on the subject of the collapses of the Towers on 11th September, 2001 (reference: http://www.physics.byu.edu/research/energy/htm7.html).
If you read Prof. Jones' paper, you will extract the following information which, in my opinion, needs to be investigated:

1) As a result of the collapses, pools of molten metal were discovered. You will also read approximate temperatures, indicated by colouring. It is well-known that as metals are heated their colouring changes, rendering (visibly) an approximation to their temperature. You will also find accurate infra-red temperature measurements obtained by means of satellites. Added to this aspect (i.e. the existence and temperatures of these pools) is their persistence, at Ground Zero, for weeks following the events.

2) Neither the original FEMA Investigation, nor the Independent 9/11 Commission, nor the National Institute of Standards and Technology (nor, indeed, articles in Popular Mechanics, etc.) have addressed this incontrovertible evidence in any way whatsoever.

Consequently none of these prior investigations has created a scientifically-conclusive description as to why the Towers collapsed, how they collapsed in the manner we all saw on television, and (most importantly) how these residual pools of molten metal could have been formed. And, furthermore, how the molten metal could have persisted for up to six weeks following the events.

I suggest that you should apply resources to create a definitive explanation, which takes all aspects into account, and considers all possibilities. I believe that the American people, especially the bereaved, deserve your fullest attention to this.

In addition to the foregoing, I understand the Mayor Giuliani was instrumental in arranging shipment of the metallic rubble, from the crime scene to overseas locations, before a serious and stringent forensic examination could be performed. I understand that the removal of evidence prior to a complete investigation is a Federal Crime. I presume that permission for this was given, and that it was done in order to facilitate rescue operations. However, in concert with others, I fail to understand why the rubble was not relocated to a secure location, so that it would remain available for forensic analysis.

I repeat, I believe such an investigation would in no way be a waste of the FBI's valuable time. I would not have sent this tip if I believed to the contrary. I am firmly convinced that a stringent investigation would elicit the following benefits:

a) As of June 5th, 2006, the FBI is on record(*) as admitting there is insufficient evidence to link Usama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda with the 9/11 atrocity. I believe that a scientifically-consistent explanation would conclusively rule out any such link once and for all.
(* Reference link: http://www.teamliberty.net/id267.html)

b) I firmly believe that a scientifically-consistent explanation would point the FBI clearly in the direction of the true perpetrators.

These are my reasons for supplying this tip. All that is necessary is to start with the evidence and work backwards, in the same manner that any crime is normally investigated. I believe I am in possession of documents that indicate this crime to be perfectly solvable, in particular the paper to which I initially referred you. To the best of my knowledge the City of New York has made no effort to investigate on the basis of the evidence I bring to your attention, and five years have passed in the meantime.

If this tip-off is not followed up it might suggest to many, both inside the USA and elsewhere, that your organisation has been specifically directed NOT to solve these crimes, regardless of widespread awareness of these facts. For example, mainstream Italian TV is now debating the collapse of Building 7, and showing side-by-side comparisons with a known controlled demolition. Here is a reference:
http://www.911podcasts.com/display.php?vid=113

I look forward to a positive response from you in this matter.

Yours faithfully (in the hope that justice is done, and seen to be done),

US 9/11 group seeks aid of Dr M

http://thestar.com.my

PUTRAJAYA: During the Sept 11, 2001 aerial attacks on New York’s Twin Towers, former janitor William Rodriguez helped to rescue 40 victims and he, eventually, had to also be pulled out from the rubble.

He went on to become a decorated hero and was feted by both the White House and Congress.
...
“I lost 200 of my friends in the tragedy, 36 of whom were Muslims. I believe the US government had used the tragedy to demonise Islam and Muslims, and used it as the reason for the international war against terrorism.”

Recapping the tragic events, he said he was in the North Tower when he heard explosions from the basement at 8.45am that day, even before the first plane rammed into the building.
...
Rodriguez said he also heard explosions from below the 44th floor as he, together with a few firemen and policemen, raced around trying to save people before the building collapsed.

Huffington Post Editor Has A Question for 9/11 'Conspiracy Buffs'

A Question for 9/11 Conspiracy Buffs - huffingtonpost.com

I can't pretend to have researched all this in detail, but at the behest of some apparently rational acquaintances of mine I have looked into it. And I have seen enough to know this much: if 9/11 was the result of a Bush administration plot, the scope of the enterprise was enormous.
..
So here's my question: if these folks could arrange something as logistically complex as 9/11, couldn't they have arranged for us to "discover" some WMD in Iraq? That would have been child's play by comparison. If they had just done that little thing, their whole agenda would be on track today. Bush's numbers would have stayed up, support for the Iraq war would have held firm, and patriotic US citizens would be chomping at the bit for an attack on Iran.

Dr. Steven Jones PowerPoint Presentation from Chicago Keynote Speech



Dr. Steven Jones was nice enough to provide us a copy of his PowerPoint presentation from his Chicago keynote speech, you can download it via the image above. Keep in mind that the video of his presentation will be available for purchase soon via 911truth.org.

Dr. Jones also discussed new information in his keynote speech regarding test results of a sample of molten metal from ground zero. While the results were preliminary, the results showed that the molten metal substance contained iron, sulfur, manganese, and potassium. Dr. Jones briefly went over this new information in his recent interview with Alex Jones. Hopefully Dr. Jones will provide more information regarding these tests in the near future.

Report from Hawkins For US Senate

from CAMPAIGN MEDIA DIRECTOR, Sander Hicks:

Dear 911 Blogger,

I wanted to let you know that representatives from the 9/11 truth movement nation-wide met with and advised US Senate Candidate Howie Hawkins, this past Friday, June 9, in a fun, lively conference call.

Howie Hawkins is the peace and justice candidate here, in the NY Senate race, he's running as the Green nominee against that war-monger, Hillary Clinton. He calls for an independent investigation into 9/11, and this phone meeting deepened his understanding on what the 9/11 truth movement cares about, and how we can turn the tide.

We had key people from 9/11 Truth, Counter-Coup, and the Green Party there, including Gloria Mattera, who is co-chair of the NY Party. For an hour and fifteen minutes, we covered message, outreach, and what to do.

We plan on doing this again, in a couple weeks. Anyone who wants to participate, is welcome to send me an email, introducing themselves.

Howie's original Open Letter is worth re-publishing, and I hope you'll let people know he wrote this. People can support the campaign by going to http://hawkinsforsenate.org

BUSH KNEW: An important link between stolen elections and 9-11

http://www.aljazeerah.info/Opinion%20editorials

According to respected attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr., there are massive amounts of evidence pointing to the fact that John Kerry won the 2004 presidential election.

I'm not up on the factual details but I'll bet you dollars to donuts that Al Gore won the 2000 election as well. Want solid facts? Go to http://www.invisibleballots.com/ and http://www.blackboxvoting.org/.

The 2000 election was stolen very crudely because election-stealing techniques were not as highly developed as they were in 2004 -- but it was STOLEN all the same. Yet despite all the facts staring Americans in the face that both elections WERE stolen, the perpetrators of this outrage against everything America stands for have been able to get away with one of the biggest, most heinous, most treasonous crimes in American history. How? By telling us again and again that, despite the presence of whole warehouses full of testimony, evidence and databases to the contrary, anybody who believes that the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections were stolen is a conspiracy theorist and a crackpot as well.

It's as if you were to catch a criminal standing in your bedroom and going through your purse but you do nothing because the bad guy tells you that you are crazy to think that he is robbing you -- and you believe him!

We Americans are encouraged to not believe our own eyes.
...
Next, let's look at human nature. If someone commits a crime, do we thereafter suspect them of being guilty of other similar crimes? Well, yeah. For instance, if a teacher discovers that the lunch money is missing, who gets suspected? The good kid? Or the kid that has stolen before?

And if Bush did indeed plan the theft of America's presidential elections -- one of the most massive and heinous crimes in U.S. history -- then we must face the very real possibility that anyone who is corrupt, power-hungry and evil enough to steal not one but two U.S. elections is also corrupt, power-hungry and evil enough to plan 9-11.

An Interview with Carol Brouillet - Green Party Congressional Candidate and 9/11 Activist

Questions And Answers With Green Party Congressional Candidate, Carol Brouillet - yourbbsucks.com

3. What first made you question the official story of 9/11?

I remember vividly the day it happened and the surreal quality of seeing events unfold upon television, and the silencing of the air traffic. What scared me more than the events was the spin of the media, the drums for war. I had been planning a trip to DC to protest the IMF, the World Bank, the Bush policies, and those protests were cancelled. Half of my "affinity group" (which had been discussing whether we should get the gas masks with or without sequins prior to 9-11) couldn't go to DC because the DC airport was closed. I decided to go, and soon learned that the impending war on Afghanistan had nothing to do with "catching terrorists."

I started getting lots of e-mail and the most damning stuff, I thought, was Jared Israel's articles on the failure of the planes to scramble, and Bush's odd behavior during the attacks, and the Secret Service's failure to whisk him away to safety. Michel Chossudovsky's articles on "Who is Osama bin Laden?" and his article on Lt. General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of Pakistan's I.S.I.'s having $100,000 sent to Mohammed Atta, and his visit to DC from September 3rd through the 13th, where he met with top US officials was the "smoking gun" to me. That's when I asked for a meeting with my Senators' staffs and began compiling questions. On January 8th, 2002 I organized a rally, march, and meeting at Senator Feinstein's San Francisco office, and we demanded a congressional investigation of 9/11.


Be sure to check out the whole interview.

Thanks to Jon Gold for the interview, and to Carol who is a dedicated activist.

Military Plays Up Role of Zarqawi

Yeah, especially since we were told he died years ago:
http://www.washingtonpost.com

The U.S. military is conducting a propaganda campaign to magnify the role of the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, according to internal military documents and officers familiar with the program. The effort has raised his profile in a way that some military intelligence officials believe may have overstated his importance and helped the Bush administration tie the war to the organization responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
...
Some senior intelligence officers believe Zarqawi's role may have been overemphasized by the propaganda campaign, which has included leaflets, radio and television broadcasts, Internet postings and at least one leak to an American journalist. Although Zarqawi and other foreign insurgents in Iraq have conducted deadly bombing attacks, they remain "a very small part of the actual numbers," Col. Derek Harvey, who served as a military intelligence officer in Iraq and then was one of the top officers handling Iraq intelligence issues on the staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told an Army meeting at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., last summer.

Italy Mainstream Media Speaks of 9/11 Cover-up - Guest Blog Entry

Just got the following email, I'll post it as is:

Italian mainstream media is starting to speak quite a lot about the 9/11 truth.

On May 24 2006, the program Matrix, on channel Canale 5, aired a debate between journalist Giulietto Chiesa (who is working in a research called Gruppo Cinque, on 9/11) and ex center-right parliamentary Marco Taradash. The interesting thing is that they showed a few minutes of Loose Change 2nd edition, and they covered the building 7 collapse. It's a pity the show was aired at 12:15 at night! This is the link (unfortunately, it's all in italian): http://www.matrix.mediaset.it/videogallery/2006/05/24/videogallery.shtml

Anyways, I thought it was an isolated case. Instead, the same show dedicated another two entire evenings on the same subject, with different guests, but getting better to the core of the case. The shows were aired May 31 and June 2. The May 31 show talked about producer Marco Mazzucco's documentary called "Inganno globale" (Global fraud), and about the different italian blogs that are out there. Among the guests was director of Cnn Italy, Marco Vinci, Here's the link: http://www.matrix.mediaset.it/videogallery/2006/05/31/videogallery.shtml

The show had a HUGE audience for its standards. That's why they decided to give it another shot on June 2, which covered the 9/11truth Congress that was just starting in Chicago. (and they listed ALL 40 top questions that are being asked to the Bush administration) Among the guests were prof. Cardini and prof. Ernesto Galli della Loggia (which is a really big name in Italian society).
Third link: http://www.matrix.mediaset.it/videogallery/2006/06/02/videogallery.shtml

But that's not all. This morning (June 10), channel La7 dedicated its morning show, Omnibus Weekend, to the big 9/11 cover-up with this title present all the time at the bottom of the screen: "September 11: a conspiracy?". They dedicated more than hour to debate on the whole thing, having four different guests on the show. Quite a bit was dedicated to the Building 7 collapse, and the video of its collapse was shown more than once.

I think it is very interesting that the mainstream media is starting to talk about the 9/11 cover-up now that the center-right government of Silvio Berlusconi has lost the elections (April 10). Berlusconi was one of the most obliging allies of Bush. Maybe now the media feels more free to get the alternative truth out there, because there is no doubt that the people who work in the media, all over the world, have all of the information they need to start speaking out. I hope these programs can be a sign of a future italian awakening, because we have been blinded in all different ways by five years of Berlsuconi, just as the Usa is still suffering the continuous lying that is being done by its government.

I'll keep you updated with any other news from this side of the ocean.


Thanks Nick for the submission!

Morgan Reynolds Presentation at University of Wisconsin - Video Download



Morgan Reynolds, professor emeritus at Texas A&M University and former chief economist for the United States Department of Labor under George W. Bush, gave a presentation on 9/11 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison on May 6th - above is the video download.

A big thanks go out to Kevin Barrett of MUJCA for organizing this event, and for providing a copy to us at the Chicago conference.

Former CIA Member Robert Baer Comments on 9/11 'Inside Job' Possibilities - Audio Download



Robert Baer is a former CIA member who has authored several books, and served as the basis for the recent movie Syrianna. In this interview they discuss 9/11, possible ties between Iran and Bin Laden, the ways in which some have profited from 9/11, and motives.

Here is a quick transcript:
Hartmann: ..by writing fiction you have been able to say some of the things that the CIA wouldn't let you say in non-fiction, is that an accurate statement?

Baer: Absolutely, you know the two things the CIA wouldn't let me write about - the Iranian connection to 9/11, and number two I get to take on these fictional truths - and they are fictional truths surrounding 9/11 - the whole conspiracy theory idea of what other countries were involved, was an individual involved - an American. Questions like that, and put it into dramatic art.

[..]

Hartmann: Was Iran involved - what countries were involved in 9/11?

Baer: I think that at some level there was Saudi involvement [..] 15 were from Saudi Arabia [..] a lot of the money came from Saudi Arabia, but nobody's been indicted.

[talk about Bin Laden family, Arbusto connections, ongoing meetings with Saudi's on 9/11]

Baer: The other question is Iran, who setup a strategic relationship with Bin laden in 1996 - this I know for sure, and there are a lot of questions out there.

Hartmann: But Bin laden is a Sunni Arab, and Iran is a Shia country - why would they do that?

Baer: Yeah.. tactical alliances, anything that is anti-American - anything that will cause the United States problems..

[talks of brief Iran mention in 9/11 commission report, and hijacker prior knowledge and cover up]

Hartmann: In your opinion was there - and we just learned here that Judy Miller could have blown the 9/11 story in July of 2001 and that might have caused it not to have happened. [..] Were there folks inside the United States government who would profit tremendously - perhaps politically rather than financially [..] - who would have profited from 9/11 who worked to allow 9/11 to happen?

Baer: Well let me put it this way - a lot of people have profited from 9/11. You are seeing great fortunes made - whether they are on the stock market, or selling weapons, or just contractors - great fortunes are being made. [..] You have to ask that question, is it possible to profit from 9/11 and hide it? Yes. I have talked to accounting firms, I know how it is done - layered accounts, etc.

Hartmann: What about political profit? There are those who suggest that G.W. Bush, and or Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, Pearl, Wolfowitz - someone in that chain of command [..] had pretty good knowledge that 9/11 was gunna happen - and really didn't do much to stop it - or even obstructed efforts to stop it because they thought it would lend legitimacy to Bush's [..] failing presidency.

Baer: Absolutely, I mean you know [..] what we are doing is looking at motivation. I mean how can you - with the intelligence we knew that indicted Saudi Arabia and Iran - how can you go to war with Iraq and lie about connections between bin laden and Saddam? that was an out and out lie - they knew there was no connection. [..]

[..]

Baer: This is what they wanted to do, they needed a pretext to go into Iraq.

[..]

Hartmann: So are you personally of the opinion [..] that there was an aspect of 'inside job' to 9/11 within the U.S. government?

Baer: There is that possibility, the evidence points at it.


Hartmann: And why is it not being investigated?

Baer: Why isn't the WMD story being investigated? Why isn't anyone been held accountable for 9/11? [..] Why has there been no change in command? Why hasn't there been any sort of exposure on this?

[..]

Baer: There are answers out there, I've got pieces of the story [..]


A big thanks goes to Thom Hartmann for asking a few tough questions, and to PsyOpsJihad for this great submission!

Stop Focusing on Ann Coulter and Start Focusing on the Jersey Girls

Enough about Ann Coulter: Answer the Jersey Girls questions about 9/11! - Save the USA

Is anyone else outraged at all the attention that Ann Coulter is getting for attacking the Jersey Girls? How is it possible that everyone is talking about what Ann Coulter wrote, and no one is talking about what the Jersey Girls have to say? John Kerry wrote for Huffington post about how horrible it is that Ann is attacking them with the provocative headline “Shameless, but the Real Shame Is If We Don’t Act” No folks, he is not talking about acting on the very important issue of demanding answers to what the hell happened on to our air defenses on 9/11…he wants us to act by calling the media and telling them we don’t like Ann Coulter.

Instead of jumping in to defend them from this insignificant hateful warmonger, I bet the Jersey Girls would rather have people pay attention to what actually happened on 9/11 and start answering their questions!
..
There are many more questions and I think if we are going to defend the Jersey Girls we should start by demanding John Kerry and others look at the facts and start answering some questions about why they are ignoring the blatantly obvious and letting the Bush Administration get away with murder.


Thanks Mike for the heads up!

Kevin Barrett Blasts the Media on 9/11 Blackout in Newspaper Opinion Peice

This article is actually a few weeks old, but is a great read, and focuses on Morgan Reynold's presentation at the University of Wisconsin - video of this presentation is on the way soon.

Kevin Barrett: Media hide truth: 9/11 was inside job - The Capital Times

Last Saturday, former Bush administration official Morgan Reynolds drew an enthusiastic capacity crowd to the Wisconsin Historical Society auditorium. It is probably the first time in Historical Society history that a political talk has drawn a full house on a Saturday afternoon at the beginning of final exams.

Reynolds, the former director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis, and the ex-top economist for George W. Bush's Labor Department, charged the Bush administration with gross malfeasance, and proposed the prosecution of top administration officials.

Normally, if a prestigious UW alumnus and ex-Bush administration official were to come to the Wisconsin Historical Society to spill the beans about a Bush administration scandal, it would make the news. The local TV stations would cover it, and it would merit front page headlines in The Capital Times and Wisconsin State Journal.

Reynolds' indictment of the administration he worked for was a stunning, life-changing event for many of those who witnessed it. As the event's organizer, I have received dozens of e-mails about it from people who were deeply affected.

Despite the prestigious speaker and venue, and the gravity of the charges aired, for most Americans indeed most Madisonians the event never happened. Why? Because it was censored, subjected to a total media blackout. Not a word in the State Journal. Not a word in The Capital Times. Not a word on the local TV news. Not a word on local radio news. And, of course, not a word in the national media.

Why the blackout? Because Reynolds violated the ultimate U.S. media taboo. He charges the Bush administration with orchestrating the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for launching a preplanned "long war" in the Middle East, rolling back our civil liberties, and massively increasing military spending.


Thanks Bozo for the heads up!

All Canadian Terror Show



While dz and sbg were cavorting with the elite in Chicago, I was on the new frontline of the "War on Terror"... that's right, CANADA.

9/11 set the stage for the media feeding frenzy that took place this past week, giving the the morning papers something to make headlines with, something for pundits to babble about, and something for Stephen Harper's arguably neoconservative government to use as a political tool.

Is it a coincidence that months after a neocon takes office, terror is on the front pages in Canada? Don't know, but if you are interested, check out my parsing of some Canadian terror coverage and draw your own conclusions.

The brilliant Canadian writer Gwynne Dyer has some things to say about the terror show in Vancouver's Straight magazine;

Any terrorist attack on Canada is bound to be homegrown, because there is no shadowy but powerful network of international Islamist terrorists waging a war against the West. There are isolated small groups of extremists who blow things up once in a while. There are Web sites and other media through which they can exchange ideas and techniques, but there is no headquarters, no chain of command, no organization that can be defeated, dismantled, and destroyed.

Incidentally, Alex Jones has just had an interesting experience with Canadian customs officials.

Kevin Barrett from Mujca.com Responds to Recent NYTimes Coverage

MUJCA Coordinator Responds to NY Times Journalist - Mujca.com

The first and biggest problem is the fault of the headline writer. This was not a conference for “conspiracy buffs,” a term that ordinarily refers to marginal people who are obsessed by minute details of various events that they, but very few others, view as conspiracies. First, there is no question about 9/11 being a conspiracy, since no one person acting alone could have committed the crime. Second, half of New Yorkers (probably more than half by now) believe top US officials committed high treason by conspiring to enable the 9/11 attacks; forty percent of US adults believe the official version is a cover-up; and a clear majority of Americans is calling for a new investigation focused on the possibility of official complicity. Thus the agenda of the Chicago conference attendees is mainstream, not marginal. Finally, the Chicago conference was focused on activism, not “comparing notes” about what may have happened. Of the more than fifty events, around forty were specifically geared towards activism, while fewer than ten addressed education about the evidence. The phrase “conspiracy buffs comparing notes” is therefore highly inaccurate, perhaps even defamatory, and an apology from the New York Times would be appreciated.

The egregious headline overshadowed other inaccuracies and questionable statements. Allow me to take them one by one.

War is the First Casualty of Truth

Dr. Joe Hawkins Weighs in on Chicago Conference from Stoplying.ca

One Night In Chicago - stoplying.ca

So here I am, its 1:00 AM and I'm chowing down on some shrimp at the Empress Hotel in Chicago. I am typing into home base (stoplying.ca) with the state of revolution in America. That is to say, the conference here on the truth behind 911. My plane arrived late and I didn't waste any time taxing in, checking in and registering in. No arrests, no issues and no trouble. Happy to report.

This is much more than a "conspiracy convention", these people can't be more serious about the state of affairs for the empire of America. Arriving late, it was standing room only for Alex Jones, the kickoff guest speaker for 911TRUTH.org's main event since its inception. Further, we can easily say this is a historic day for America, the first time a conference of this nature is being held with such focus on truth about the real situation in America.

The first evening of the conference started out with a blast by Alex Jones, and ended with a stunning expose of wit by Meria Heller. Many may not of herd of her, but you soon will. She struck a cord with the 911-truth movement, encapsulating the essence of what this movement is all about. Speaking the truth, with wit and flare, she didn't hold any punches and rather delivered a proper knock out. The mood of the crowd was clearly ready for action, information, and guidance. All three were being delivered with first class speakers, information booths, and a clear sense of purpose in no short supply.

NY911Truth.org Covers 9/11 Convention in Chicago



9/11: Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future - ny911truth.org

June 2nd - 4th in Chicago, the largest 9/11 truth conference to date drawing an estimated 500 people took place. Leading researchers and movement luminaries such as radio talk show host Alex Jones, BYU Prof. Steven Jones, famed attorney William Pepper, Pacifica radio host Ralph Shoenman, former MI5 agent Annie Machon, Jim Fetzer of Scholars For Truth, author Jim Marrs, radio host Meria Heller, Project Censored founder Peter Phillips, author Webster Tarpley, whistleblower Kevin Ryan, documentary maker Barrie Zwicker, OKC Bombing researcher Chris Emery, and many more totalling 47 speakers who drew 500 people to this amazing event. There were educational and strategy workshops designed to bring a deeper understanding of the attacks of 9/11, and action ideas on how a real investigation and ultimately truth can be obtained.
..
The event also drew reporters from Italy, Finland, the NY Times, as well as local Chicago media. On Monday after the conference, to the surprise of all in the movement, an article appeared in the NY Times called "500 Conspiracy Buffs Meet to Seek the Truth of 9/11" which mentioned the Reichstag fire, questions of the collapse of Building 7, the melting point of steel, the absence of air defense and more. This is quite a breakthrough after nearly 5 years of silence from the NY Times with respect to the glaring questions and obvious cover-up which indicate government complicity.
..
The founder of 911blogger.com was there and gave some great insight on blogging at the 9/11 Grassroots 101 strategy session. Gary Franchi, with one of the most popular new sites, www.lonelantern.org was a vibrant figure who also headed up one of the local support staffs which did an invaluable job in managing logistics and hospitality for the conference.

There were some new films shown such as 9/11 Press For Truth by Kyle Hence, 9/11 Hoboken (the new version of 9/11: Eyewitness), and Improbable Collapse by Mike Berger. The incredibly popular Loose Change 2 was shown and the young producers participated in a film/media workshop. Jesse Richard of TVNewsLies.org gave a presentation on how to shape the message of 9/11 truth. There was a political strategy workgroup with candidates Carol Brouillet, Craig Hill, Jim Hogue, Rich Whitney, and Col. Bob Bowman. There were so many interesting workshops that people had a hard time choosing which to attend.
..
I think its safe to say, attendees left inpsired and energized to enter the next phase of 9/11 activism. With the talent, creativity, and commitment evident there we can look forward to a very eventful summer and fall with more progress being achieved as we continue to work towards truth, justice and human progress.


Nice writeup by Les Jameson over at ny911truth.org. He puts the recent coverage from the NY Times into context very well. How ironic that the first time the NYTimes covers the 9/11 Truth Movement is in Chicago when for months and months and months they could have paid attention to any of the many events held on Sundays at St. Mark's Church, or at ground zero every Saturday. I was lucky enough to protest with them at the NY Times in New York last 9/11, almost 9 months ago, and was glad to meet some of those same people at the Chicago conference.

Check out the article for some pics as well.

Thanks Les for the heads up!

Ken Jenkins and Morgan Reynolds Chicago Presentation - Video Download



Conjecture & Theory - Ken Jenkins & Morgan Reynolds
Ken Jenkins - What was Supposed to Happen on 9/11 and Didn't
Morgan Reynolds - How the Perps Screwed Up 9/11 and How We Can Exploit It

The 9/11 plot did not go entirely as planned. For example, there were serious problems with Flights 77 & 93 and with WTC 7. These problems lead to our having more evidence than we would have had if all had gone according to the original plan. Learn what we know and theorize and how it helps our case for proving that 9/11 was an inside job. Included will be information on the divisive question 'did 77 hit the Pentagon?' without either side being favored - an effort at healing that divide in our movement.


This presentation by Reynolds and Jenkins was probably one of the more interesting ones at the conference. It focused on conjecture amongst 9/11 skeptics, and was basically the one presentation that could be labeled as 'conspiracy theory' - because the discussion was about theorizing.

The question and answer section at the end of the video was removed, but was actually pretty interesting. Please keep in mind this is just an initial release from my handicam recording, so please don't complain about the shakiness, a better version will appear in the coming weeks and months.

The FBI "Has No Evidence"

This new article provides background and context to the Muckracker Report article which states that the FBI has "no hard evidence" linking Bin Laden to 9/11.

Kurt Nimmo Issues a Letter to His Representatives

Email to Congress Critters - Another Day in the Empire

Senator Pete V. Domenici, Senator Jeff Bingaman, Representative Heather Wilson, Representative Steve Pearce, Representative Thomas Udall:

On June 7, Steven E. Jones, professor of physics at Brigham Young University, appeared on Alex Jones’ nationally syndicated radio program. Dr. Jones revealed the presence of thermite on steel beams taken from the World Trade Center. As you may or may not know, thermite is used commercially to cut steel, and is also used militarily as an incendiary device. The presence of this reactant on steel extracted from the World Trade rubble is highly suspicious, indicating the World Trade Towers were brought down through demolition, not as a result of jet fuel weakening the structure of the building, as claimed by the Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.

As an American citizen and resident of New Mexico, I encourage you, as my elected representatives, to urge Congress to re-open the investigation of the events leading up to the September 11, 2001 attacks. However, instead of a congressional investigation, the government must demand a truly open and public investigation independent of the White House and Congress, and the thermite evidence discovered by Dr. Jones, who conducted his PhD research at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center and post-doctoral research at Cornell University and the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (thus demonstrating he is not simply a “conspiracy theorist” to be dismissed), must be admitted and seriously considered.

He suggests that perhaps 6/6/06 will be used, perhaps in the zip code of 60606, which is the Sears Tower zip code which is owned by Silverstein (the owner of the Twin Towers on September 11th) and uses the same security company as the WTC--Securacom (now called Stratesec where President George Bush's brother, Marvin served as director from 1993 to 2000).

New Videos Tomorrow Night - Open Thread

Just ran into some issues that will push the two videos I was working on back until tomorrow. Until then be sure to check out the grab bag below (here) as there is some new media there to keep you busy.

The videos we will be posting tomorrow night include Morgan Reynolds and Ken Jenkins from the Chicago conference, and a bootleg video of Morgan Reynolds 'Was America Bush-Whacked?' presented at a Mujca event in Madison last month. Oh, and I will try my best to get up a summary of Steven Jones' keynote speech as well, but no promises on that.

FBI States No Hard Evidence Connects Bin Laden to 9/11

FBI says, “No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11” - Teamliberty.net

June 6, 2006 – This past weekend, a thought provoking e-mail circulated through Internet news groups, bringing attention to the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist web page for Usama Bin Laden.[1] (See bottom of this web page for Most Wanted page) In the e-mail, the question is asked, “Why doesn’t Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster make any direct connection with the events of September 11, 2001?” The FBI says on its Bin Laden web page that Usama Bin Laden is wanted in connection with the August 7, 1998 bombings of the United States Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. According to the FBI, these attacks killed over 200 people. The FBI concludes its reason for “wanting” Bin Laden by saying, “In addition, Bin Laden is a suspect in other terrorists attacks throughout the world.”

On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”


More details at the link listed above. I wonder if the FBI would repeat this for verification, why not give them a call?

Business as usual, part two: The government short-sells America
http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_875.shtml
According to Burien, “The showing of derivative transactions both on the domestic and international fronts would burn the government’s façade alive. Based on the fund tracker, government fund accounts were holding their largest short positions ‘ever’ going into 911.” As always, while everybody’s looking at planes, hijackers, politicians, falling buildings and the like, it comes down to “following the money.” Once the trail is exposed, it’s a whole new ballgame.

Osama Tape Appears Fake, Experts Conclude

In this new recording, a voice attributed to Osama bin Laden asserts that Zacarias Moussaoui was not involved in 9/11, which he knew to be the case because he had personally assigned the 19 hijackers involved in those events. The Osama of this tape thereby implicitly confesses his responsibility for orchestrating the attacks. However, in a tape released on December 27, 2001, the authenticity of which is not in doubt, Osama denied having had anything to do with 9/11. "Moreover," Fetzer added, "some of the 19 hijackers he 'personally assigned' have turned up alive and well."

Coulter Attacks 9/11 Widows

Ann Coulter appeared on the Today Show and attacked the 9/11 widows and anyone who criticizes the administration:

Coulter: These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing bush was part of the closure process."

Lauer: And this part is the part I really need to talk to you about:

Coulter: "These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much."

Lauer: Because they dare to speak out?

Coulter: To speak out using the fact they are widows. This is the left's doctrine of infallibility. If they have a point to make about the 9-11 commission, about how to fight the war on terrorism, how about sending in somebody we are allowed to respond to> No-No-No. We always have to respond to someone who just had a family member die ..."

Whether you think the widows go far enough in stating that 9/11 was an inside job or not, they did lose loved ones in the 9/11 false flag operation, and this attack by Coulter is disgusting. Does it show desperation by the defenders of the official story?

This catch comes from Crooks and Liars.

AlterNet Covers 9/11 'Wild Conspiracies' versus 'Rational Concerns'

9/11: Wild Conspiracies and Rational Concerns - AlterNet

Even when you cut through the conspiracy theories about 9/11 and head straight for the facts, the government's version still seems fuzzy.

According to a recent Zogby poll, less than half of all Americans agree that "the 9/11 attacks were thoroughly investigated and that any speculation about U.S. government involvement is nonsense."

You could almost hear a wail of frustration rising up from the gatekeepers of acceptable discourse.
..
Outside of the world of punditry, the 9/11 conspiracies should come as no surprise, especially when you consider how ripe the events of 9/11 are for "alternative" analysis.

That begins with the basic premise that underlies the most common conspiracy theories. I, for one, have no problem accepting the notion that a small group of true believers -- people like Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and the rest of the neocon "cabal" -- used the attacks of 9/11 to seize and consolidate power. And I'm comfortable accepting that they view liberal democracy as a threat, their political opponents as a national weakness, and American militarism as the best hope for humanity.

They've proved, to my mind, that they're happiest when governing in secrecy -- a prerequisite for a conspiracy. Think about the administration's obsession with classifying everything under the sun, or Dick Cheney going all the way to the Supreme Court to avoid divulging who, exactly, crafted America's energy policy.
..
So you have suspects and motive, and they accord more or less with some distinctly mainstream progressive analyses. That's not, however, evidence of anything. So, to repeat, while there's a pretty clear record of Bush Republicans taking advantage of 9/11 - think Rudy Giuliani's 2004 GOP convention speech that mentioned September 11 four score times - there's nothing concrete to suggest that they were behind it.
..
Having taken a long bath in the world of 9/11 conspiracism, I still think the most likely scenario is that the Bush administration was obsessed with rival powers -- Russia and China -- and ignored the terror issue. After the attacks, the security agencies were under enormous, unrelenting pressure to show Americans they were in control and they needed to show that they were on top of the investigation at all costs. These things would certainly require sanitizing in the 9/11 report and other official narratives for the sake of expediency and creating the appearance that the government was on the job.

Having said that, I'd also be receptive to evidence that the Bush administration had a far greater degree of knowledge about the how and why of the attacks, and looked the other way and let them happen. All I'd need to buy that would be a bit of evidence. After all, we've recently learned in a report published on AlterNet that New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who had a direct link to the most powerful office in Washington (Dick Cheney's), said she had been warned of a terrorist attack.


Be sure to swing by and send in some reasonable feedback to Joshua Holland, one of the few bloggers in the liberal blogad ring to even discuss the subject.

Thanks Scott and Ray for the heads up!

Notes on Chicago Keynote Speech by Alex Jones

Friday night there were three keynote speeches, of which I attended two - Alex Jones and Steven Jones. Both of the keynote speakers brought their 'A' game to the table, and I think pretty much everyone took something new from the information they covered. Below are notes on the first keynote speech by Alex Jones, expect such notes for Steven Jones' lecture in the next day or so. (If you attended the keynotes of other speakers please feel free to send in some notes as well.)

Alex Jones Keynote Speech Notes

Alex Jones started out by going through a power point presentation on the history of government sponsored terrorism. This section of the presentation covered in great detail such things as events in ancient Rome, Hitler's Reichstag fire, Hitler and the Gleiwitz incident, the overthrow of Mossadegh, Operation Northwoods, the Gulf of Tonkin, the U.S.S. Liberty, the Oklahoma City Bombing, and the 1993 WTC Bombing. Alex went into great depth into each of these sections, and really showed off his command of the subject matter. Alex closed out this section of his speech by discussing briefly the Iraq war. Alex pointed out the White House memo on Iraq, as well as discussed P20G who is "responsible for secret missions targeting terrorist leaders in order to stimulate reactions among terrorist groups, thereby provoking violent acts, which would in turn make them susceptible to counterattack by US forces..

Alex Jones then moved onto what he considers the smoking guns of 9/11. Going into great detail Jones covered the Bush/Bin Laden connection, PNAC, preexisting war plans for Afghanistan, the NORAD stand down, Hijackers training in U.S. bases, explosives in the buildings, and ended with the Pentagon controversy by labeling it as a sort of 'honey pot'.

One of the more interesting mentions in Alex's 9/11 segment regarded the following statement which I had not heard before:

Air Force Officer Delivers Blistering Excoriation of Bush

Of course President Bush knew about the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism. [..] What is sleazy and contemptible is the President of the United States not telling the American people what he knows for political gain.

The letter provoked immediate retaliation against the 24-year Air Force veteran. [..]


From there Alex Jones went on to discuss in great detail how incredibly corrupt and indefensible our leaders have become. He discussed how Bush is above the law, focusing on the degree to which torture has become a legal avenue via the likes of John Yoo, he covered how the media has received over 1.6 billion in funding for what amounts to propaganda, and the NSA spying scandal. He went further to talk about those people of courage who have attempted to stand up to this corruption such as Charlie Sheen, former MI5 agents, 9/11 activists, etc. - and how they are sacrificing their personal lives for the greater good.

Alex then went on to discuss the New World Order and offer his views on the greater issues of which we are all involved in.

It was great to hear Alex give such a detailed presentation covering such a wide range of information, and it was very well organized as well. Alex will be attending the American Scholars Symposium out in California at the end of this month where he will debut his latest film which he mentioned covers much of the information in his presentation.

I do not have any details as to ordering copies of Alex Jones' keynote speech yet, but we will be sure to post once we have those details.

Keith Olbermann Mentions Chicago Event - Video Download



Keith Olbermann mentioned the Chicago 9/11 event on his show this evening in a segment on the recent statements by Judith Miller about receiving prior warning of a major attack by Al-Queda prior to 9/11. While he provided little detail on the event, it is quite a change to see 9/11 skeptics being given some form of recognition - maybe next they will notice that a former Bush cabinet member presented at the event and believes 9/11 was an inside job himself.

Thanks to Jon Gold for providing the video!

Presentation by Kevin Ryan From Chicago Conference - Video Download



Kevin Ryan gave a presentation on Sunday at the Chicago conference. I actually learned a couple of things I was previously unaware of, specifically involving the scientists who worked on both the FEMA, NIST, and Oklahoma City Bombings investigations - and comments they made about the collapses immediately after the events took place. Also, Ryan reviewed the FEMA, NIST, and Silverstein investigations into the World Trade Center collapses proving quite easily that there is no 'obvious' explanation as all three investigations varied tremendously.

For those unfamiliar with Kevin Ryan, here is a brief clip from his Wikipedia entry:
Kevin Ryan is a former Site Manager for Environmental Health Laboratories in South Bend, Indiana, a subsidiary of Underwriters Labs(UL) responsible for water testing. He was fired after publicly challenging UL's conclusions regarding the collapse of the WTC.

Ryan said that in the WTC towers case, UL was the company that certified the steel used in construction of the two towers. However the company's spokesman Paul M. Baker stated "UL does not certify structural steel, such as the beams, columns and trusses used in World Trade Center".

Ryan has responded to the UL statement, noting that it directly contradicts statements made by UL's CEO, Loring Knoblauch


It should also be noted that Kevin Ryan provided further background information on his involvement with Underwriters Laboratories as well.

Please keep in mind that there will be much better copies of all presentations from the Chicago conference in the coming days and weeks, however this recording of mine seemed good enough to share for those interested in getting a first look.

Again, please refer to the regulations here if you intend to make use of this video for other purposes

D.C. Ranked Low for Terror

ABC News says:

"You might think of the District [that is, Washington D.C.] as a likely target for a terrorist attack, but now the Department of Homeland Security ranks it as one of the cities at lowest risk."

TV News Lies has the best comment on this news story:

Duh! Of course the risk is low...they are the ones conducting the terror! They are not going to aim it at themselves and the DHS is clearly admitting this!"

Quick Mix Video of Lobby Tour and Chicago March



This is a quick mix video showing a quick tour of what the lobby looked like at the center of all the presentation rooms, and the march in downtown Chicago. We have a bunch of other footage of the Chicago march that was given to us, however this is just intended to be a small clip - we are not exactly video editors ;)

Vote in AOL's Online Poll

Vote now in AOL's online poll:

Do you think the U.S. government was complicit in 9/11?

No way

I'm suspicious but not sure

Yes"


John Leonard, who publishes Webster Tarpley and other great 9/11 authors (and who is a powerhouse 9/11 activist in his own right), pointed out that the NY Times article on the Chicago conference is now one of AOL's top news stories. Look at the "More Top News" and "Most Popular Stories" pages while the story is still there.

9/11 Truth – The Key To Stopping World War III

Resolution submitted to the 911 Chicago Truth Conference by Webster Tarpley.


I was talking to Webster at the conference and he asked me to post this on the Blogger. He had been distributing the following document to everyone at the conference and was hoping to have a vote on it either during or after Robert Bowman's speach. Unfortunately, I had to catch a train and couldn't wait for the speach, so I'm not sure if a vote was ever taken.

Anyway, download the document Here.

In the document, Webster plainly states that the notion of LIHOP is gravely deficient to the movement since it suggests that independent entities as "Al Qaeda" might actually exist and could possibly orchestrate an event such as 9/11.

Because of this, Webster is asking all of us to commit to the MIHOP scenario and form a united front of groups and organizations for action on thes points over the remaining months of 2006:

  1. The Vermont Green Party is the first state party to call for the impeachment of Bush-Cheney based on their 9/11 crimes, with the first article against Bush for misprision of high treason. This approach should be replicated everywhere. Our movement is the cutting edge of impeachment, and we must guarantee that the impeachment groundswell includes the 9/11 element without which it will falter.
  2. We will take back the air waves from the corporate media with a relentless barrage of phone calls to C-SPAN, Air America, and to every television and radio talk show in this country and beyond, all for the purpose of placing 9/11 truth at the top of the national agenda. This guerrilla war can bring our message to tens of millions of people every day, circumventing the gatekeepers.
  3. We will support candidates of any party or of no party who embrace 9/11 truth. We will focus national attention on key candidacies like those of Carol Brouillet for Congress in California, Bob Bowman for Congress in Florida, Craig Hill in Vermont, and others. We also wish to direct international attention to the candidacy of Irish 9/11 truth movement leader Morgan Stack to the Dail (Parliament of the Republic of Ireland) for the district of Cork South Central.
  4. We will continue our surveillance of drills and exercises to raise the political price the invisible government must pay if it seeks to carry out new crimes.
  5. While stressing that the MIHOP historical and political analysis of 9/11 is already conclusive, we urge that 9/11 deep throats and whistleblowers come forward, both to testify and to produce additional written or recorded evidence of courtroom quality on the scale of the Watergate tapes that can put the September criminals behind bars.
  6. In the event that Bush-Cheney seek to impose martial law, we will agitate for an open-ended general strike of the civil rights movement, the labor movement, immigrant groups, minorities, students, and all persons of good will to demand the restoration of Constitutional rule.

This resolution by Webster is sponsored by numerous groups, all of which are listed in the full document. Please download the entire document and read it through, maybe we'll get a chance to vote on it. If anyone knows if it was actually voted on at the conference, please let us know in the comments below.

The New York Times Covers the Chicago Conference

500 Conspiracy Buffs Meet to Seek the Truth of 9/11 - NYTimes.com
For the record, I am not a 'conspiracy buff' - nor would I consider many of those at the conference 'conspiracy buffs'. In fact I am a concerned citizen that believes my own government was involved in 9/11 - an opinion that came after many months of reading and researching, an opinion I believe any open minded researcher would reach as well.

In the foyer, there were stick-pins for sale ("More gin, less Rummy"), and in the lecture halls discussions of the melting point of steel. "It's all documented," people said. Or: "The mass media is mass deception." Or, as strangers from the Internet shook hands: "Great to meet you. Love the work."

Such was the coming-out for the movement known as "9/11 Truth," a society of skeptics and scientists who believe the government was complicit in the terrorist attacks. In colleges and chat rooms on the Internet, this band of disbelievers has been trying for years to prove that 9/11 was an inside job.
..
"We feel at this point we've done a lot of solid research, but the American public still is not informed," said Michael Berger, press director for 911Truth.org, which sponsored the event. "We had to come up with a disciplined approach to get it out."
..
The former owner of a recycling plant outside St. Louis, Mr. Berger joined the movement when he grew skeptical of why the 9/11 Commission had failed, to his sense of sufficiency, to answer how the building at 7 World Trade Center collapsed like a ton of bricks. It was his "9/11 trigger," the incident that drew him in, he said. For others, it might be the fact that the air-defense network did not prevent the attacks that day, or the appearance of thousands of "puts" — or short-sell bids — on the nation's airline stocks. (The 9/11 Commission found the sales innocuous.)

Such "red flags," as they are sometimes called, were the meat and potatoes of the keynote speech on Friday night by Alex Jones, who is the William Jennings Bryan of the 9/11 band. Mr. Jones, a syndicated radio host, is known for his larynx-tearing screeds against corruption — fiery, almost preacherly, addresses in which he sweats, balls his fists and often swerves from quoting Roman history to using foul language in a single breath.

I don't think I have ever seen Alex Jones use 'foul language', in fact he avoids it.
At the lectern Friday night, beside a digital projection reading "History of Government Sponsored Terrorism," Mr. Jones set forth the central tenets of 9/11 Truth: that the military command that monitors aircraft "stood down" on the day of the attacks; that President Bush addressed children in a Florida classroom instead of being whisked off to the White House; that the hijackers, despite what the authorities say, were trained at American military bases; and that the towers did not collapse because of burning fuel and weakened steel but because of a "controlled demolition" caused by pre-set bombs.
..
Like a prior generation of skeptics — those who doubted, say, the Warren Commission or the government's account of the Gulf of Tonkin attack — the 9/11 Truthers are dogged, at home and in the office, by friends and family who suspect that they may, in fact, be completely nuts.

For those that missed it, the government released new documents at the end of last year proving that the Gulf of Tonkin never did occur, you can find them here.
It would even seem the Truthers are not alone in believing the whole truth has not come out. A poll released last month by Zogby International found that 42 percent of all Americans believe the 9/11 Commission "concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence" in the attacks. This is in addition to the Zogby poll two years ago that found that 49 percent of New York City residents agreed with the idea that some leaders "knew in advance" that the attacks were planned and failed to act.
..
"I hope you don't end up dead somewhere," a companion said to a participant, hours earlier as he dropped him at the Loop. "Don't worry," the participant said. "There's too many of us for that."

I did hear/see a few responses at the plaza including being flipped the bird, and "I hope the terrorists drop a bomb right here and kill all of you" - typical emotional responses.

Back From Chicago Just in Time to Pass Out

Just got back down to Hotlanta from the Chicago conference about a half hour ago, just a quick update on what I managed to see/do today. For those that are not aware, the conference was massive enough such that it was impossible to see every presentation there in person, but Somebigguy and myself split up a good bit, so we will each have some commentary to post in the coming days of what we saw personally.

In any event, in summary - Friday was more or less the press conference, the march in Chicago, and the keynote speeches of Dr. Steven Jones, Alex Jones, and Meria Heller. Saturday I sat in on a discussion/presentation with Carol Brouillet, an interfaith discussion with Kevin Barret and Faiz Khan from Mujca, caught a small part of Q&A segment of 9/11 Eyewitness Hoboken (and got a final copy), watched Ken Jenkins and Morgan Reynolds discuss conjecture surrounding 9/11 (quite interesting), and saw the premier of Improbable Collapse. Finally, today I saw Kevin Ryan's presentation, saw Dr. Jones present again (different subject matter), and sat in on a strategy discussion.

This of course is just a very simplistic overview of the last 3 days. Pretty much from the moment I got on the hotel shuttle bus until the moment I got back off it this morning at the airport, it has been a nonstop three day weekend - in fact last night I was up until 4:30 in the morning. Perhaps the bigger part than the presentations and film premiers for me was the networking and face time I got to enjoy with a very very wide spectrum of people. I am somewhat disappointed that I did not get that face time with some, but in reality there were so many people there, and so many things going on, that it was impossible. Having random individual or group discussions with people was really neat, there are a lot of people in this movement who have a lot of diverse knowledge. I personally had a chance to talk with a few people like Dustin Mugford from 9/11 Revisited, Ian Woods from Global Outlook, Andrew Grove and the creators of Who Shot John O'neil, Radical Pragmatist who is a frequenter to our blog here, and many many others - in fact way to many to name, just thought i would pick a few.

I am hopeful that we will get some of the speeches up tomorrow night, until then I have some sleep to catch up on.


Note: You can find another first write up of the event from Jon Gold here:
I'm Back From Chicago, And It Was Amazing

.. and I would expect more from Somebigguy, Radical Pragmatist, and others as well. If you were there yourself please feel free to send in links to other related articles from the conference, I'm sure we will get to emails sometime tommorrow ;)


Note: I had forgotten that the keynote speeches are not open to free distribution right off the bat, but that everything else is - so we will be ripping our videos today and trying to get some of that out by this evening. Once we have a link to provide for ordering copies of the keynote speeches we will do so.

Checking in From Chicago



Just a quick check in from Chicago - this place is a zoo. Just as a quick example, as soon as I got on the shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel, Alex Jones and the creators of Loose Change got on the bus - I was in the 9/11 skeptics twilight zone. Since then both Somebigguy and myself have seen an incredible number of 9/11 skeptics, of all shapes, sizes, and persuasions. We have seen keynote speeches last night from Steven Jones and Alex Jones, as well as the premier of Improbable Collapse.

In any event, we have taken video footage which we will get on the web once we are able to, and you can be rest assured that there will be a ton of media popping up on 911podcasts.com in the coming days and weeks.

Sorry for the lack of updates, but above you can find a few snap shots from today and yesterday - they are not sized down nor the best shots, just a quick grabbag of sorts. Hopefully we will have a chance to provide more info and details later now that we have the web connection setup.

Bombs Heard in the Twin Towers

Forget all of the videos and photos of the collapse of the World Trade Centers for a minute. Let's talk about an aspect of 9/11 that we've all glossed over: sound.

The following earwitness testimony indicates controlled demolition of the Twin Towers:

What could make the above-described sounds other than explosives used as part of a controlled demolition?"

Arab-American sues to regain spot on ballot

Arab-American sues to regain spot on ballot

By John Petrick
NorthJersey.com
Posted on Saturday May 27, 2006

Sami Merhi, the Passaic County Arab-American candidate abandoned by the county’s Democratic leaders over comments about terrorism, has sued to reclaim his spot on the party’s primary ballot.

“The stated reason for the withdrawal was ‘politics’, but the underlying basis … is the fact that Merhi is an Arab-American and exercised his constitutional right of freedom of speech,” says the suit, filed in state court Friday...

...Noting that Merhi lost a godson in the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, the suit says: “In September of 2002, Merhi spoke at a fund-raiser for Congressman William Pascrell, Jr.” where he “emotionally expressed his loss and outrage against the cowardice and horrifically senseless violence of 9/11. A reporter for The New York Times, in attendance at said fund-raiser, asked Merhi if his comments regarding 9/11 applied to suicide bombers in Israel. Merhi replied that he could not see the comparison. Merhi later explained that 9/11 was a personal tragedy and an attack against his country, but that all violence is to be condemned.

“Nonetheless, because of Merhi’s Arab ancestry, his political opposition maliciously used the unspoken, seemingly acceptable prejudice against Arab-Americans flowing from 9/11 and the war on terror as a political tool to transform Merhi’s otherwise innocuous words into a statement of apparent support of terror against Israel. Nothing could be further from the truth,” the suit states...

9-11 Video Game Circulating On Internet

9-11 Video Game Circulating On Internet

by Lisa Hughes

A disturbing video game about 9-11 is circulating on the internet. The images are reminiscent of a terrible day in our history. While some would say it's in bad taste, we spoke with a woman who lost her husband on 9-11 who says, it's worse.

“They owe every family who lost someone on nine eleven a personal apology,” said Cindy McGinty. She is referring to the makers of the internet video game "New York Defender."

It encourages players to "use your mouse and fight back" by shooting down planes before they get to the World Trade towers. If they miss, the planes hit the towers and they crumble. Just like 9-11.

“Many people don't connect what happened. People died, my family is changed forever,” said McGinty. “So how could that be in anybody's mind an appropriate game?”...

Mars tribute to 9/11 victims

Mars tribute to 9/11 victims

Debris from the terror attacks on the World Trade Centre is sitting on the surface of Mars. Engineers used mangled metal from the wreckage of the 9/11 outrage to build parts for two robot rovers now exploring the Red Planet.

The quiet tribute was the idea of staff at Honeybee Robotics, a company operating close to the New York disaster scene who built drilling tools for Nasa. Many of the Manhatten workers had to flee choking clouds of smoke and dust after the twin towers were destroyed by two airliners in September 2001...

A little more continued at link.

If you go to the Honeybee homepage, you can see what appears to be one of the rovers, front and center, proudly displaying its 9/11 tribute.

Spain Acquits Accused 9/11 Plotter.

Court overturns 9/11 conviction

Spain's Supreme Court yesterday overturned an al-Qaida suspect's conviction for conspiracy to commit murder in the September 11 terrorist attacks, weeks after prosecutors acknowledged the case against him was weak.

The high court threw out a 15-year sentence against Syrian-born Imad Yarkas for conspiracy to commit murder in the airliner attacks in the United States, but upheld a 12-year sentence he received for belonging to a terror organization.

It also confirmed the acquittal of three other suspects accused of belonging to or collaborating with al-Qaida. They had already been released in April at the request of prosecutors. They are Moroccans Driss Chebli, Sadik Merizak and Abdelaziz Benyaich...

Wow, sounds like somebody has a weak case, huh?

NYC Out to Cripple 9/11 Claims

City out to cripple 9/11 claims, say docs

BY PAUL H.B. SHIN
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

City lawyers are "fishing for information" at medical gatherings that could be used to undermine claims for 9/11-related health problems, doctors and union officials charged yesterday.

Two attorneys from the Law Department attended a meeting last week that organizers said was intended for doctors and advocates to have a frank discussion about how to treat patients suffering from illnesses believed linked to Ground Zero toxins.

"This was an outrage," said Micki Siegel De Hernandez, health and safety director of the Communications Workers of America. "We never would have participated in the meeting if we knew that the city Law Department was there fishing for information they could use against future claims."...

...The controversy emerged as the city Health Department launched the second phase of the World Trade Center Health Registry, which will resurvey the 71,000 participants to see if they have lasting ailments resulting from the terror attacks.

RELATED: Their '9/11 plague'

BY RIDGELY OCHS
Newsday Staff Writer


A study published last month showed the average decline in lung function among firefighters who were at Ground Zero one year after Sept. 11 was the equivalent of 12 years of aging.

Doctors who treat World Trade Center responders say they are surprised almost five years later by the growing number seeking help for the first time - 100 people a month in the biggest monitoring program - and by the severity of illnesses among Sept. 11 workers already in treatment.

"There's no question there's continuing demand and many in the treatment program are quite ill," said Dr. Robin Herbert, codirector of the World Trade Center Worker and Volunteer Medical Screening Program at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan.

Herbert, whose program has examined about 15,000 responders since 2002, said doctors are finding "remarkable persistence" in breathing disorders such as chronic sinusitis and asthma, stomach ailments such as gastrointestinal reflux disease and psychological problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder - a suite of maladies one survivor called "my 9/11 plague."...

The Emperor has No Votes

Personally, I don't think the Democratic branch of the corporate party is any better than the Republican branch.

But since the Democrats are just now starting to awaken to the fact that the 2004 election was stolen, maybe this is an opening to talk about another conspiracy: 9/11.

Off to Chicago 9/11 Conference

Just got all my crap together for my trip to the Chicago event. Unfortunately as per usual I waited until the last minute to get my stuff together, so I'm sure I have forgotten something or another.

In any event, after scouring the massive number of simultaneous events that will be occurring I have realized that covering everything from the three day event will be nearly impossible, however we will do our best to cover what we can - and will be taking a digital camcorder, camera, and 12 hours worth of tapes to help. If you are attending the Chicago events and are taking a camcorder please let me know so that we can cover different events and perhaps exchange tapes. The people at 911truth.org who helped organize this event will also be releasing a set of approximately 25 DVDs at 2 hours a piece within a couple of weeks of the event - we will be sure to get our hands on the set and spread them around if at all possible.

I have forwarded all emails that are submitted to me via the contact panel on the left to my PDA/phone, and the other emails will be checked as we get to them between presentations. We should have broadband abilities via the hotel and be able to check in pretty frequently throughout the weekend, however it is unlikely that we will be posting anything more than pictures and text until after we are back. I have taken off Monday so that I can get straight to work on the video footage once I am back.

Looking forward to the event, be sure to stay tuned for news from Chicago!

Calling All Dutch 9/11 Skeptics

The guys over at Zapruder Inc. are organizing an event on June 20th and are requesting all Dutch 9/11 skeptics to come join in and help out.

Here is a brief summary of their plans (rough translation):

We have an offer from a very well viewed and very reputable TV program that if we will offer the 9/11 petition one more time they will film us. I want to test your willingness, this event works best if we can assemble lots of people who want to join us (and go) and take with us more letters of readers in the petition.

We are in a hurry, the cabinet will go on holiday in three weeks. The wording of the petition will be very neutral so that believers as well as non-believers can agree on it, we just want the politicians to look at it and speak out.

So, how do we deal with this and how much support can you arrange? Last time i was standing there alone.

..
We will offer the petition on the 20th June in the house of parliament in The Hague. This usually is around 13:00. Whether they will accept it personally is not known. Last time they refused. For the media attention it will certainly help if we do this big and with many people. In any case a TV crew from a big and well known TV show will be there. That's their promise.


You can find more information on the upcoming rally in the Loose Change forums here, and if you speak dutch you can join in on the vkmag.com forum here.

Review of Music Video for Lies, Lies, Lies by Ministry

hipvideopromo.com

The album peaks with “Lies, Lies, Lies”, a remarkably candid statement of disbelief in the official line on the Iraq War and the catastrophic events that led up to it. The song opens with sound clips borrowed from Dylan Avery’s incendiary documentary Loose Change – a powerful touchstone for those who believe the Bush Administration has covered up crucial facts about the 9/11 attacks. Over some of the heaviest beats in Ministry history (and that’s saying something) Jorgensen spits lyrics about government deceit, and punctuates a grinding guitar riff with a guttural cry of “lies!” that sounds as if it’s coming from the burning throat of an infernal judge. His conviction and his outrage are equally scalding.

Here at HIP, we’ve certainly seen our share of anti-administration videos over the past six years. But we don’t think we’ve ever gotten one with more visceral power than director Zach Passero’s hypnotically engrossing clip for “Lies, Lies, Lies”. What’s so remarkable about it is that it isn’t really over-the-top at all – instead, it communicates its message of resistance through gestures of fear and bewilderment. Passero’s stationary camera scans the interior of a quintessential, television-dominated suburban home. As the people inside sit entranced by the motion pictures, an Arab bogeyman stalks the outdoors, just beyond a living room window. The family members respond as they might have been taught in a Cold War video, ducking and covering under the kitchen table. But there’s nothing parodic about this clip, and it’s shot with a curious coldness and a strangely antiseptic feel that leaves no doubt about the director’s feelings. All of the everyday objects inside the house seem to take on a too-still quality – they radiate terror and claustrophobia. Possessed, the eldest boy stares at the camera and fingers at a plastic raygun. In the next shot, he sits in the barber’s chair, shorn of his locks and wearing fatigues. Still in a trance, he leaps up from the chair, and follows a procession of marching skeletons – led by George W. Bush.


The music video comes out June 7th, until then you can find the Ministry single at 911podcasts.com

Thanks Erik for the submission!

Ray McGovern: False Flag Attacks "Probable" to Justify War with Iran

Here's the article

Former CIA analyst and Presidential advisor Ray McGovern, fresh from his heated public confrontation with Donald Rumsfeld, fears that staged terror attacks across Europe and the US are probable in order to justify the Bush administration's plan to launch a military strike against Iran, which he thinks will take place in June or July.

McGovern entertained the notion that western governments and intelligence hierarchies could potentially stage terror attacks in Europe and the US either before or after an invasion of Iran.

"That's altogether possible," said McGovern.

"I would say even probable because they need some proximate cause, some casus belli to justify really unleashing things on Iran....I would put very little past this crew - their record of dissembling and disingenuousness is unparalleled."

McGovern said that Rove, Cheney and Rumsfeld, fearing impeachment and Enron-style criminal proceedings, are urging President Bush to launch a war in order to create a climate unconducive to lengthy investigations and impeachment proceedings.

Asked to cite specifically when we should expect to see an attack launched, McGovern said, "I think we all agree that an attack is likely before the election and we all agree that it has to do largely with the election - as for timing I see a likelihood that it could come as early as late June or early July, most of my colleagues predict August, September, maybe an October surprise even."
