NY Times: In a 9/11 Survival Tale, the Pieces Just Don’t Fit

The front page of the NY Times this morning has a story about a survivor from the South Tower, Tania Head, whose story is starting to raise red flags.

As a matter of history, Ms. Head’s account made her one of only 19 survivors who had been at or above the point of impact when the planes hit. As a matter of emotion, her story deeply moved audiences like college students to whom she spoke and visitors at ground zero, where she has long led tours for the Tribute W.T.C. Visitor Center for visitors including Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and former Gov. George E. Pataki.

“What I witnessed there I will never forget,” she told a gathering at Baruch College at a memorial event in 2006. “It was a lot of death and destruction, but I also saw hope.”

Much of Ms. Head’s account was posted on the Web site of the World Trade Center Survivors’ Network, a nonprofit organization for which she served as president and as point person for corporate donations.

But no part of her story, it turns out, has been verified.

Help us out with 9-11 truth on European Tribune

I've justed posted a diary on the European Tribune, which doesn't seem to be getting much attention, despite some encouragement from readers there to post on the topic.

Please come and recommend the diary, and post comments !!! I would be most appreciative !! Also, Euro Trib has a lot of other interesting articles about alternative energy, economics and European elections.

Deconstructing the Official Story

Yahoo News covers some questions about Giuliani

I was surprised this morning to find this piece on Yahoo news covering a very limited scope of questions that many of us have for Giuliani. The piece doesn't go into anything too provokative; indeed, it prefers to frame the debate around the bungled clean-up of Ground Zero.

The good side of this might be that our efforts are making a difference. Therefore, if the media is publishing questions being raised about 9-11 then it's still a positive development, even if the truly difficult questions are not being addressed.

An excerpt:

"If Rudolph Giuliani was running on anything but 9/11, I would not speak out," said Sally Regenhard, whose firefighter son was among the 343 FDNY members killed in the terrorist attack. "If he ran on cleaning up Times Square, getting rid of squeegee men, lowering crime — that's indisputable.

"But when he runs on 9/11, I want the American people to know he was part of the problem."

New Freedom Tower to be protected by Liberty Forcefield

As originally reported in The La Rochelle Times:

High-tech shield will protect tower from terrorist threats

The Freedom Tower, set to replace the twin towers of the former World Trade Center, will be protected by a state-of-the-art electro-magnetic shield dubbed the "Liberty Forcefield." Construction on the new skyscraper has only recently begun, delayed by the pesky victims' families who want a memorial to commemorate the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. The project is now underway, over-budget and behind schedule, but nevertheless set for completion by 2012.

The Port Authority of New York, which has repossessed the site after it was privatized by Larry Silverstein properties in July, 2001, is overseeing the construction of the new tower. Although Silverstein properties had intended on financing the project, his investment was threatened by insurance companies who found inconsistencies in the policy that was taken out in July, 2001. They refused to pay the $7 billion Silverstein claimed as his reimbursement for "two separate attacks" that occured on Sept 11, therefore doubling his otherwise paltry $3.5 billion insurance claim.

Dept of Homeland Security reveals new 'Democratic Threat Level' color code

As reported in the La Rochelle Times:

Alert system to warn Executive Branch of impending oversight

The Department of Homeland Security announced Friday that it has developed a new color-coded chart to aide the White House in assessing the threat level of the Democratic Congress. The five categories are intended to help the Leader in evaluating which steps to take next when facing bruising oversight hearings, subpoenas, or leaks of other damaging information. The DHS has declined comment about whether or not the color-coded alert system has already gone into service, but it is certain that its handiness will prove useful once Congressional hearings get started in the coming weeks. The DHS, which takes its orders from the Executive Branch, also has developed new flow chart to help the Leader in the decision-making process, as parter of its larger initiative to protect the vulnerable Unitary Executive from terrorists, enemy combattants or political opponents.

The chart uses five threat levels, much like the chart made in 2002 for the general public after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The first two levels, green and blue, indicate a minimal threat from Congressional investigations. The yellow level signals that Congressional probes may be hurting the War on Terror, and the orange and red levels alert the Leader to take urgent action to avoid scandal fallout.

Democrats remained ambivalent after hearing of the news. "I don't think that the President really needs to rely on such as system," said Senator Phil Abusder (D-MI). "It won't change the facts uncovered through oversight."

Conspiracy theorist keeps winning at 'Clue'

As reported in the La Rochelle Times:

Notorious conspiracy theorist Ben Lernen has once again won a game of Clue, bringing his winning streak to fourteen consecutive games. Family members and friends were disturbed to hear of the latest victory after recently discovering Lernen's penchant for conspiracy theories about the Moon landing, the JFK assassination, 9-11, and other important world events.

"It just doesn't make sense," said sister Candice Lernen. "He goes off all the time about how 9-11 was an inside job, about how there's no way 19 guys with boxcutters could have brought down those towers, and then he goes and wins at Clue all the time. I thought he was nuts but now I'm starting to wonder if he isn't on to something."

Lernen's mother said it doesn't make her son's points any more valid, even if he might be the best person in the family at unraveling mysteries. "Even if he's good at Clue, it doesn't mean he's right about the Moon landing being filmed in a TV studio in Area 51," said Mora Lernen on Thursday after her latest defeat at Clue.

Fox News says War on Christmas could last "several generations"

Recent accredited reports from Fox News have surmised that the "War on Christmas" may last "several generations." The fight against secular extremists may take longer than initially expected, say some Fox News reporters.

At the outset, the war to regain notoriety for the oft-forgotten holiday seemed to be relatively limited. Since being relegated to the back pages of history by fundamentalist non-Christians, Christmas has become an obscure and misunderstood festival, ignored by the secular and brainwashed masses.

"People just don't celebrate Christmas any more," said Pastor Dick Prime. "We have to restore our Christmas traditions and take the fight to the secular jihadists who are attacking our religious traditions, by using any means necessary, be they chemical, biological or nuclear."

American Thinker says 9/11 skepticism "extremely dangerous"

This just in...'s Michael Lopez-Calderon thinks that people who don't buy the government's line about 9/11 are "extremely dangerous" because they might "undermine our democratic nation's war against the theocratic forces of radical, Jihadi-driven Islam".

Disney to sponsor next terrorist attack on America

Alain Terrieur
La Lune de la presse internationale


The Walt Disney Corporation in conjuction with ABC Broadcasting announced Wednesday that it would be the proud sponsor of the next terror attack on the USA. After releasing a docu-drama this week on the 9-11 attacks which purposely distorted facts and testimony to Congress about the attacks in New York and Washington, the corporation decided that it would also be in its interest to promote future terrorism so as to pre-empt any factual reporting that would be done in its wake.

"We felt that since we got to re-write the history of 9-11 in order to blame the Clinton Administration, we may as well go ahead and ensure the next attacks so we could blame future Democrats or liberals, or anyone else we disagree with," said Disney Executive Producer Lou Zurr. He also dismissed allegations of partisan unfairness, illegality or immoral behavior as simply "aiding and abetting the future terrorists."

Another Disney executive said on condition of anonimity that Disney was thrilled with the prospect of monopolizing forthcoming documentaries of the next spectacular attacks on innocent Americans, hoping to make "tens of millions" while inserting whatever details they felt appropriate into the debate and omitting anything that might make certain government officials appear incompetent, complicit or perhaps even actively promoting terrorism on their own citizens. "That is simply out of the question," he stated. "We have a large enough revenue at this point to rewrite history as we see fit."

Civil War Memorabilia Gaining Popularity in Iraq

La Lune de la presse internationale


Civil War Memorabia enthusiasts rejoiced Tuesday when it was announced that the popularity of the coveted objects had reached record levels in Iraq. Weapons such as rocket propelled grenades, handguns, explosives and depleted uranium had become increasingly valuable in recent weeks, a La Rochelle Times study showed.

If current memorabilia popularity remains at such high levels, it could have a profound effect on the development of Iraqi society and culture, as well as an influence on international oil prices. The Iraqi Dinar, once unpopular with foreign currency holders, could gain ground against other currencies if Iraq is flooded with even more potential Civil War memorabilia.

"In a few years, who knows what some of those depleted uranium rounds will be worth on the memorabilia market," said General Ann R. Key, currently overseeing the Fubar Province in central Iraq.
