Guardian follows up with a hit piece

Just noticed this insulting column published two days ago in the Guardian, after Peter Tatchell's excellent piece appeared last week. Comments will probably be shut down soon since they usually stay open for 2 – 3 days, so hurry if you want to post. (I'd suggest being polite, reasoned and intelligent, of course.)

The troof is out there

His final advice demonstrates how those who are trying to marginalize people who question 9/11 into an us-and-them dichotomy (his piece falls into the classical mode in this respect) are able to use the loud-mouthed "we know they are guilty and if you don't admit it you're blind or complicit" mentality some "truthers" can't restrain, to persuade others to dismiss us outright:

Seminal Book Released – A Cornerstone for the Truth Movement

Peter Dale Scott's historic new book, The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America, is now available.

The importance of this publication should not be underestimated. Published by the University of California Press, Scott's new book goes further than any other book so far published about 9/11, to identify and establish through unimpeachable documentary evidence the historic factors that have made the crime of 9/11 and its cover-up possible. More than this, The Road to 9/11 demonstrates exactly how it has happened over the past half century that American democracy has been fundamentally undermined, and, vitally, how it can be re-established.

In case you missed it

This may well have been already reported here, but in case it got missed, I noticed it just now. Here is the link.

MUCKRAKER REPORT

Former Fed analyst questions M1 currency component spike prior to 9/11

March 22, 2007 – William Bergman worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago from July 1990 until early 2004. He served as an economist for eight years, and then moved to a senior analyst position in a new department researching financial market and payment system risk policy issues. In late 2003, he was asked to consider an assignment in the money laundering area. Bergman accepted the assignment, underwent a background check, received credentials affording access to confidential banking information, and began working in the area. He was told that he was “part of the fight against terrorism” and that he “had been asking good questions.”

One aspect of the assignment to the money laundering area was for Bergman to develop a paper that, if accepted, could serve as a reference source for the Federal Reserve System.

9/11 doubts becoming mainstream

Noting that she tends to be about six months ahead of mainstream thinking when she speaks up about things, Cindy Sheehan speaks of her doubts about 9/11 in the context of those in power using another false flag attack to implement martial law.

Paul Craig Roberts Warns Again (And Questions 9/11)

Information Clearing House has published an even straighter piece by Paul Craig Roberts. Hopefully, more high profile former and current officials will follow his lead as the situation gets so obviously critical.

A Wake-up Call

By Paul Craig Roberts

07/19/07 "ICH" -- -- This is a wake-up call that we are about to have another 9/11-WMD experience.

The wake-up call is unlikely to be effective, because the American attitude toward government changed fundamentally seventy-odd years ago. Prior to the 1930s, Americans were suspicious of government, but with the arrival of the Great Depression, Tojo, and Hitler, President Franklin D. Roosevelt convinced Americans that government existed to protect them from rapacious private interests and foreign threats. Today, Americans are more likely to give the benefit of the doubt to government than they are to family members, friends, and those who would warn them about the government’s protection.

Intelligent observers are puzzled that President Bush is persisting in a futile and unpopular war at the obvious expense of his party’s electoral chances in 2008.
