About that FOIA request you made? Sorry, the files don't even exist. That's what the US government wants to be able to say. Forget about the transparency newly elected Pres. Obama promised.
US government wants to legally lie

WASHINGTON - The staggering death toll for Ground Zero responders has soared past 916 - and still no one knows what really killed them.
Now, nine years after the terror attacks, doctors and some New York lawmakers are urging the federal Department of Health and Human Services to draft autopsy protocols to pinpoint 9/11-related fatalities, the Daily News has learned.
Astonishingly, there are no written standards to help doctors diagnose post-9/11 deaths, leaving a void that's wreaked enormous emotional pain and conflict on survivors.
"It was heart-wrenching," said Joe Zadroga, who watched his NYPD officer son, James, slowly deteriorate from scarred lungs until he died in 2007.

Nearly a decade after the Twin Towers fell, a dozen of those who claim they've been condemned to death by Ground Zero's toxins are finally headed to court.
Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein Friday revealed the 12 health cases tied to the terror attacks that will go to trial in Manhattan federal court just blocks from the World Trade Center site.
"These cases include some who have spent the greatest amount of time searching for remains, cleaning up," said Paul Napoli, a lead lawyer for many of the plaintiffs. "They are among the greatest heroes and they bear the brunt of illness because of those efforts."
The dozen cases are a mix of New York City firefighters, cops, transit workers and Con Ed employees.
** I thought steel & concrete buildings spontaneously turn to dust, from top to bottom @ 10 floors per second, straight down into a nice neat little pile when they unexpectedly collapse--just like 3 of them did in NY on 9/11? Oh well, those are the arbitrary laws of physics for ya! [/sarcasm] **
Entire New 13-Story Building Tips Over in Shanghai
This past Saturday, an entire apartment building in Shanghai collapsed. To be fair, the building was under construction and thus unoccupied, but it's still a minor miracle that there was only one fatality.
Sounds like there was a problem with some nearby flood prevention walls at the Dianpu River, but there's no hard evidence as to why this huge building simply fell over. Anyway, here are some sweet pictures of the architectural carnage.

New Evidence Links Saudi Royal Family To Al Qaeda And Extremists, But May Never Be Used In 9/11 Suit
New York Times: Documents Back Saudi Link to Extremists
June 24, 2009
By ERIC LICHTBLAU
WASHINGTON — Documents gathered by lawyers for the families of Sept. 11 victims provide new evidence of extensive financial support for Al Qaeda and other extremist groups by members of the Saudi royal family, but the material may never find its way into court because of legal and diplomatic obstacles.
The case has put the Obama administration in the middle of a political and legal dispute, with the Justice Department siding with the Saudis in court last month in seeking to kill further legal action. Adding to the intrigue, classified American intelligence documents related to Saudi finances were leaked anonymously to lawyers for the families. The Justice Department had the lawyers’ copies destroyed and now wants to prevent a judge from even looking at the material.
The Saudis and their defenders in Washington have long denied links to terrorists, and they have mounted an aggressive and, so far, successful campaign to beat back the allegations in federal court based on a claim of sovereign immunity.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top U.S. biodefense researcher apparently committed suicide just as the Justice Department was about to file criminal charges against him in the anthrax mailings that traumatized the nation in the weeks following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a published report.
The scientist, Bruce E. Ivins, 62, who worked for the past 18 years at the government's biodefense labs at Fort Detrick, Md., had been told about the impending prosecution, the Los Angeles Times reported for Friday editions. The laboratory has been at the center of the FBI's investigation of the anthrax attacks, which killed five people.
Ivins died Tuesday at Frederick Memorial Hospital in Maryland. The Times, quoting an unidentified colleague, said the scientist had taken a massive dose of a prescription Tylenol mixed with codeine.
What a huge disappointment. After two months, I finally received an e-mail response to my letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein yesterday. (a friend of mine also received the identical response yesterday as well). Apparently evidence of treason and mass murder aren't important enough for Di-Fi to upset the ranks in Washington? She's more interested in being part of the "go-along to get-along" gang. This isn't the last time she'll hear from me-- and a whole lot of others, to be sure :-) Persistence and patience... it ain't easy, but that seems to be the way.
Here's Feinstein's response, followed by my original e-mail inquiry:
Wed 9/26/2007 3:37 PM
Dear Mr. *******:
Thank you for writing to me with your thoughts on the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and the continuing government response. I appreciate your comments and welcome the opportunity to respond.
Almost 13 minutes. Excellent quality. Never seen before.
The videographer is right beside the towers when the second plane hits. I got chills watching this. Several jumpers are seen falling. Not for the faint of heart. The hosting website is in Belgium and the server a little slow. I paused the video so it would download a bit ahead, then resumed play.
Most of us aren't fooled anymore, realizing that the criminal cabal in Washington drags out their boogeyman with another fake "message" whenever they feel need to instill fear in the citizenry. The recent reports of a new bin Laden message are almost comical at this point, were it not for the overall seriousness of the matter. Six years later, the the PNAC infested US government is still trying to manipulate the masses through fear--and further, to counteract the growing awareness that 9/11 was a day of carefully planned false-flag terrorism they themselves orchestrated.
According to this FOX News article dated December 26, 2001, Osama bin Laden is DEAD. Surprisingly, the article is still online at this link: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,41576,00.html
Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.
"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.
Fifteen Los Angeles National Impeachment Center representatives and affiliate members met with Congressman Henry Waxman Tuesday, August 7th with over 50 pro-Impeachment demonstrators rallying for 2 hours in support outside. Many demonstrators also held 9/11 Truth signs and wore 9/11 was an Inside Job t-shirts. I understand those inside were also unreserved in communicating their belief that there is an urgent need for a new 9/11 investigation: That it must be nonpartisan, independent, adequately funded, and empowered with the authority to subpoena witnesses.
Apparently, my good Congressman has been listening to his constituents! I phoned last week to ask for his support of impeachment and for a new and thorough investigation of the events of 9/11--clearly stating my belief that the evidence suggests an inside job. When asked, his assistant confirmed that others called with the same concerns (about 9/11). I will be wearing my "9/11 was an Inside Job" T-Shirt, with a few friends. Spread the word to everyone you know in Los Angeles!
LOS ANGELES NATIONAL IMPEACHMENT CENTER'S 1ST AUGUST CONGRESSIONAL RALLY
(TUESDAY @ 4 PM -- CONGRESSMAN HENRY WAXMAN)
ACTION ITEM: Tomorrow (i.e. Tuesday, August 7th @ 4 pm), Congressman Waxman has asked LANIC representatives to visit his field office in L.A. to discuss Impeachment and H Res 333. LANIC is asking those who can make it to come early (by 3:30 pm) to participate in a support rally that will officially start at 4 pm! I apologize for the short notice but we just heard today from his legislative staff (Monday, 12 noon).
This is fabulous, you guys!! I just did it-- and sent an e-mail to both of my Boxer, Feinstein and my Congressman Henry Waxman. They will ALL get a "Press For Truth Pack"!!
"Answers For 9/11 Families" Week: August 3-12
From August 3rd - 12th, Democrats.com will join a coalition of organizations to help host "Answers For 9/11 Families" week. Hundreds of Americans will come together at house parties across the country to screen the acclaimed film featuring the September 11th families, 9/11 Press For Truth.
Last night I stumbled upon the recently re-activated Google page for the film. The previous view count (2,475,901 last night) also shows on the page!! Hooray!!
Last night I emailed Sofia, the creator of the film, and she responded this morning--she's totally elated!! Spread the word about this excellent film: it's a door opener to the TRUTH.
On 9/12/2001, Peter Jennings interviews Marlene Cruz, a carpenter injured in one of the pre-collapse explosions in the WTC sub-basement level B long before the planes hit the towers. The first casualty of 9/11 admitted at Bellevue Hospital, Cruz is a living witness who proves that pre-planted explosives were used to weaken the foundations.

Many of us were wondering if evidence refuting the government's LIES would be heard in the trials of suspected 'terrorists' -- however, it seems like the Pentagon has their kangaroo court ready to go.
Manual to allow executions based on hearsay
Updated: 11:52 a.m. PT Jan 18, 2007
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon has drafted a manual for upcoming detainee trials that would allow suspected terrorists to be convicted on hearsay evidence and coerced testimony and imprisoned or put to death.
According to a copy of the manual obtained by The Associated Press, a terror suspect's defense lawyer cannot reveal classified evidence in the person's defense until the government has a chance to review it.
