"What are we doing in Afghanistan? This is absolutely insane ... 15 of the 19 hijackers, terrorists, killers, of 9/11 they were from Saudi Arabia. In fact there wasn't one Afghanistan citizen amongst them. We have been in this war for twice as long now as the U.S. was in World War II, twice as long as world war II. We defeated Hitler and Tojo and Mussolini in half the time it's taken us to find Osama bin Laden ..." Michael Moore

Eric Holder's Baffling KSM Decision
The attorney general's Senate testimony this week did nothing to reassure the families of 9/11's victims.
By DAVID BEAMER
On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee met to question Attorney General Eric Holder about his decision to prosecute Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others in criminal courts rather than military tribunals. As the father of Todd Beamer, who died on United Airlines Flight 93, I was able to attend that hearing. What transpired caused me great concern and shook my confidence in our current administration.
I can't help but wonder if the defense lawyer for the accused will bring up any 9/11 truth facts during the course of this trial.
Families of 9/11 Victims Divided Over Detainee Trial Plan
Saturday , November 14, 2009
Attorney General Eric Holder's announcement to bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to trial at a New York City courthouse was received by families of Sept. 11 victims with mixed reaction Friday.
Many of the relatives expressed opposition to any civilian trial for terror suspects — especially at the federal courthouse 1,000 yards from the spot where nearly 3,000 people died.
SPI's 'leaning tower' to be demolished
21 September 2009
SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Sept. 21 - Ocean Tower, the 31-story building dubbed by many as the “leaning tower of South Padre Island," is to be demolished.
The 158-unit skyscraper, situated on the north end of the island, was sinking slowly into the sand.
The tower will be demolished, probably in mid-November, through implosion by Controlled Demolition, Inc., the company that set a Guinness World Record when it “imploded” the Seattle Kingdome.
“After careful consideration, we believe it is in the best interest of all parties involved, including the people of South Padre Island, to demolish Ocean Tower,” said Ocean Tower, LP, in a prepared statement.

Sheen Blasts Cowardly Corporate Media Refusal to Debate 9/11 Facts

Tuesday, September 15, 2009
Charlie Sheen has blasted the cowardly corporate media response to his “20 Minutes With The President” letter, slamming the press as “hopeless lap-dogs” for failing to address a single one of his 20 bullet points on 9/11 while ignoring completely his challenge to publicly debate 9/11 truth debunkers.

New York's September 11 museum to play martyrdom tapes
Thu Sep 10, 2009 4:49pm EDT
By Joan Gralla
NEW YORK (Reuters) - A museum dedicated to the September 11 attacks will play "martyrdom" videos made by the hijackers but testimonials by the public would be screened to prevent sympathizers from praising the perpetrators, museum officials said.
Previous attempts to put into context the motivation of the September 11 hijackers have been met with emotional public opposition, with politicians canceling plans for an "International Freedom Center" in 2005.
But the president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum said videos made by some of the 19 hijackers in preparation for their suicide missions make up part of the "witness testimony" and available for playback at the display.
9/11 FEMA VIDEOGRAPHER BLOWS THE WHISTLE
By Allen L Roland (about the author) Page 1 of 1 page(s)
Slowly but surely the pieces are falling into place on the most treasonous act in American History ~ the 9/11 false flag operation which most likely implicatesGeorge Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice and other high level White House officials: Allen L Roland
"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it: " False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.."
As official videographer for the U.S. government, Kurt Sonnenfeld was detailed to Ground Zero on September 11, 2001, where he spent one month filming 29 tapes: "What I saw at certain moments and in certain places ... is very disturbing!" He never handed them over to the authorities and has been persecuted ever since. Kurt Sonnenfeld lives in exile in Argentina, where he wrote "El Perseguido" ( The Persecuted ).
I am sure his 'disturbing findings' included Molten steeland traces of thermite that we know were found after the collapse, providing more proof that thermite explosive charges were used. (Thermite is the only substance that could melt steel ) His recently-published book tells the story of his unending nightmare and drives another nail into the coffin of the government's official account of the 9/11 events and increases the likelihood that 9/11 was a false flag operation.
Appeals court rules against Ashcroft in 9/11 case
Associated Press, 09.04.09, 04:03 PM EDT
BOISE, Idaho -- A federal appeals court has ruled that former Attorney General John Ashcroft may be held liable for people who were wrongfully detained as material witnesses after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
In a harshly worded 91-page ruling handed down Friday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that a man who was detained as a witness in a federal terrorism case can sue Ashcroft for allegedly violating his constitutional rights.
Abdullah Al-Kidd, a U.S. citizen and former University of Idaho student, filed the lawsuit in 2005, claiming his civil rights were violated when he was detained for two weeks after 9/11.
Al-Kidd said the investigation and detention not only caused him to lose a scholarship to study in Saudi Arabia, but cost him employment opportunities.
National Geographic Does 9/11:
Another Icon Debased in Service of the Big Lie
by Jim Hoffman
Version 0.9; August 27, 2009
By now it's quite predictable: every year as the anniversary of the attack approaches, some of the most established mainstream media brands are pressed into service to sell the official story of 9/11.
The 2009 iteration of this spectacle is notable for the contrast between the designated brand and the obligatory message. That brand, best known for its high-brow photojournalistic National Geographic Magazine, has existed since 1889, complete with a non-profit Society dedicated to education in geography, archaeology, history, world cultures, and natural science. One can't help but wonder how National Geographic's many benefactors would feel if they understood how the brand was being used to prop up the "War on Terror" with its Popular-Mechanics-style attack piece to be aired on August 31, 2009.
A web feature on the website of the National Geographic Channel provides a preview of the show and a window into the methods and goals of the show's producers. Those methods are so heavy-handed that the critical reader can't help but see that those goals are something very different from educating. As an exercise, the reader might want to read the one-page feature first, and then compare notes with my analysis of it below.

No one here has mentioned the topic of Mexico's bill to decriminalize the personal use of drugs so I thought I would post one of the first and very best articles about it that basically gets straight to the point. Although news of the bill is not directly related to 9/11 truth, I think it's important that people know about it as the drug wars and 9/11 wars are inextricably tied.

Latin America: Mexican Decriminalization Bill Now Law of the Land
from Drug War Chronicle, Issue #598, 8/21/09
A bill that decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of drugs for personal use in Mexico is now the law of the land, although it will not go into effect for one year to give states time to adjust their laws. It was published Thursday in the Official Daily of the Federation, the Mexican equivalent of the Federal Register. (To read the complete text of the bill in Spanish, go to page 83 of the Official Daily.)
(So how did I do? Heavy constructive criticism is most welcome!)
This is the first of three YouTube videos of the June 30, 2009 PowerPoint presentation I gave for my CHEM 1411 class at South Texas College (STC). The subject was on thermite and thermate and how each of their respective nano-sized variants may have contributed to the collapse of World Trade Centers 1, 2, and most especially, 7.
I know this is not directly related to 9/11 truth but I hope it'll be posted anyway as I think it ironic that this Iraqi journalist gets 3 years for throwing a shoe at a former president who should be on trial (and ultimately in jail) for war crimes.
Iraqi who threw shoes at Bush jailed for 3 years
By HAMZA HENDAWI, Associated Press Writer Hamza Hendawi, Associated Press Writer
Thu Mar 12, 5:27 pm ET
BAGHDAD – A court convicted an Iraqi journalist of assault Thursday for hurling his shoes at George W. Bush and sentenced him to three years in prison, prompting an outburst from his family and calls for his release from Iraqis who consider him an icon for a nation decimated by war.
Muntadhar al-Zeidi, 30, defiantly shouted, "Long Live Iraq!" when the sentence was imposed, according to defense lawyers. Some of his relatives collapsed and had to be helped out of the courthouse. Others were forcibly removed by guards after shouting "Down with Bush!"
"This judiciary is unjust," al-Zeidi's brother, Dargham, said tearfully.
Other family members shouted insults against Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who like al-Zeidi is a Shiite.
