Tortured 9/11 "Suspects" face Kangaroo Court in Guantanamo

US set for trial of 9/11 suspects
Tony Allen-Mills, New York

MORE than six years after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, US military prosecutors are preparing to file formal charges against six high-ranking Al-Qaeda detainees, among them Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who allegedly confessed to masterminding the plot.

The accused terrorists are all being held at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. US officials said yesterday that war crime charges could be filed as early as this week, although it may be many months before the cases are ready to go to trial.

The apparent breakthrough in a heavily criticised judicial process would open the door to the first prosecutions of the alleged 9/11 ringleaders since the hijacking of four aircraft resulted in the deaths of almost 3,000 people.

The proceedings are certain to inflame worldwide criticism of the US military justice system, including the severely limited legal rights of Guantanamo detainees and the use of torture during interrogations.

Fox News covers Willie Nelson Story

Willie Nelson: I Question Official Sept. 11 Story

AUSTIN — Texas icon Willie Nelson said on a nationally syndicated radio show this week that he questions the official story of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.

"I certainly do," Nelson said Monday when asked by talk show host Alex Jones if he questions the official story.

"I saw those towers fall and I've seen an implosion in Las Vegas, there's too much similarities between the two. And I saw the building fall that didn't get hit by nothing," the singer-songwriter said. "So, how naive are we, you know, what do they think we'll go for?"

On Sept. 11, 2001, 19 men hijacked planes, crashing them into each of the World Trade Center's twin towers in New York City, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field.

Nelson, who turns 75 this year, said if he were president, he would "stop the damn war, it's just that simple."

"The way I heard it, the 15 people from Saudi Arabia hit us in New York and we go jump on Afghanistan," Nelson said. "I never could figure that one out in Iraq."

Information Operation Roadmap Part 3

The Pentagon's Information Operations Roadmap is blunt about the fact that an internet, with the potential for free speech, is in direct opposition to their goals. The internet needs to be dealt with as if it were an enemy "weapons system".

The 2003 Pentagon document entitled the Information Operation Roadmap was released to the public after a Freedom of Information Request by the National Security Archive at George Washington University in 2006. A detailed explanation of the major thrust of this document and the significance of information operations or information warfare was described by me here.

From the Information Operation Roadmap:

"When implemented the recommendations of this report will effectively jumpstart a rapid improvement of CNA [Computer Network Attack] capability." - 7

State Propaganda Discredits Tellers of the Truth

The Necessary Embrace of Conspiracy

SNIP

America is steeped in conspiracy, and even more steeped in propaganda that discredits those who try to expose the conspiracies. Whether we’re talking about MLK, Jr., JFK, RFK, Iran-Contra, 9/11, or, most importantly, the status quo, anyone who works to uncover the truth is branded a “conspiracy nut” and discredited before any evidence has a fair hearing. The government/corporate/media version is THE VERSION. Anything else is illusory.

The FBI now has more than 100 task forces devoted exclusively to fighting terrorism. But is the government manufacturing ghosts?

"So, what you wanna do?" the friend asked. "A target?" the wanna-be jihadi replied. "I want some type of city-hall-type stuff, federal courthouses."

It was late November 2006, and twenty-two-year-old Derrick Shareef and his friend Jameel were hanging out in Rockford, Illinois, dreaming about staging a terrorist attack on America. The two men weren't sure what kind of assault they could pull off. All Shareef knew was that he wanted to cause major damage, to wreak vengeance on the country he held responsible for oppressing Muslims worldwide. "Smoke a judge," Shareef said. Maybe firebomb a government building.

Pan Am Flight 103 - False Flag Terror?

Subject:- The big picture - state sponsored global terrorism.

We know that terrorism is being used all over the world, as a tool to manipulate public opinion into accepting certain agendas planned by the governments of various nations and their sponsors.
In December 1988 after a midair explosion, Pan Am flight 103 crashed in Lockerbie Scotland with the loss of 270 lives including 11 people on the ground.

In a recent MSM article, respected middle east correspondent Robert Fisk reports that there are many strange anomalies regarding this atrocity including, "..the presence of the CIA on Scottish soil before the work of identifying bodies was properly undertaken," .

Many doubts Fisk writes, have been persistently expressed about the official story of this event not least by several of the victims families.

He has a little dig at 9/11 truth at the beginning of the piece, he has to, to maintain MSM credibility,
he has already published a piece questioning the OCT of 9/11.

Information Operation Roadmap Part 4

The Pentagon's plans for psychological operations or PSYOP in the global information environment of the 21st century are wide ranging and aggressive. These desires are outlined in the 2003 Pentagon document signed by Donald Rumsfeld in his capacity as the Secretary of Defense called the Information Operation Roadmap.

More detail about the origins and purpose of this document can be read in the first part of this series here. Also, a description of the Pentagon's desire to dominate the entire electro-magnetic spectrum and their need to "fight the net" as outline in the Information Operation Roadmap were previously described.

What is a PSYOP?

A PSYOP is not specifically defined in this document but it does provide some insight into the wide ranging activities that are considered PSYOP.

Obituary: Philip Agee- Former CIA agent who accused his government of 'state terrorism'

Philip Agee: Former CIA agent who accused his government of 'state terrorism'

URL of this article: http://news.independent.co.uk/people/obituaries/article3328353.ece

To some he was a conscientious whistleblower, to others a "traitor" responsible for the deaths of American, and possibly British, intelligence agents. The former CIA officer Philip Agee stunned the world in 1975 when he published Inside the Company – CIA Diary, accusing the US intelligence agency of "state terrorism", authorised by the White House, to thwart rising left-wing movements in Latin America. It included a list of some 250 CIA agents in the region. As a result, Agee was forced to live underground fearing a CIA "hit" for much of the rest of his life.

Failure to Cover Vital Issues Highlights Widespread US Media Corruption.

Failure to Cover Vital Issues Highlights Widespread US Media Corruption.

By JWTruther

If there is anything positive to come out of the failure (up to now) of US media networks to cover the Sibel Edmonds story, it is that the issue has been a ‘litmus test’ and has highlighted what some of us have known for a long time, that the mainstream media news networks of North America are wholly and absolutely corrupt.

Of this there can now be not one shred of doubt, the story first printed in the London Sunday Times, of ongoing high level treachery within the United States government, has been covered all across the globe including in Pakistan and Israel, almost everywhere it seems apart from where it’s most important, where this clearly ‘infected’ government actually governs, in the United States itself.

Open letter to the news networks of America.

To the news networks of America and the citizens of the United States who work for them.

Jan 2008

Dear Sirs,

I recently read a front page article in the respected London Sunday Times entitled, “For sale:-West’s deadly nuclear secrets.” dated January 6th 2008. The information contained therein is shocking and has grave implications for the security and future of our nation.

The article tells of a US citizen and former FBI employee who is in possession of hard evidence proving high level treachery involving senior officials within our own government. The Sunday Times reports that Sibel Edmonds, who worked for the FBI as a language translator and was fired after repeatedly attempting to bring these issues to the attention of her superiors, alleges specifically:-

1- That high level officials some of whom are still in office, in the State department, the Pentagon and the Nuclear weapons establishment, conspired to provide foreign governments with highly classified information including US Nuclear weapons technology, some of which may now be in the hands of America’s enemies including incredulously, Al-Quaida.

White House Pressures NY Times into CIA Tape Story 'Correction'

Of course we all know this story is being media spun into an issue of torture
during interrogation of suspects, instead of the potentially more damaging
issue of deliberately and illegally destroying evidence requested by the 9/11 Commission.

New York Times Agrees to Story Correction on White House Role in Destroyed CIA Tapes

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

WASHINGTON — The New York Times Wednesday issued a statement agreeing to correct a story it ran earlier in the day suggesting the White House was well involved in the discussions about whether to destroy CIA tapes showing interrogation methods of two Al Qaeda terrorists.

The decision to run a correction online and in the print edition of Thursday's paper was based on the sub headline of the story.

Bush Lawyers Discussed Fate of C.I.A.Tapes

By MARK MAZZETTI and SCOTT SHANE
Published: December 19, 2007

WASHINGTON — At least four top White House lawyers took part in discussions with the Central Intelligence Agency between 2003 and 2005 about whether to destroy videotapes showing the secret interrogations of two operatives from Al Qaeda, according to current and former administration and intelligence officials.

The accounts indicate that the involvement of White House officials in the discussions before the destruction of the tapes in November 2005 was more extensive than Bush administration officials have acknowledged.

Everyone should read this, it highlights how it feels to be the victim of a ruthless and murderous attack, and to discover that your own government is in collaboration with the perpetrators.

"TREASON ON THE HIGH SEAS"

December 9, 2007

BY PHILLIP F. TOURNEY

SURVIVOR OF THE USS LIBERTY

As I sit in my office beginning to write my first article for American Free Press newspaper, I look out my window. I see snow covered peaks, nature at its best in Colorado. It calms me to see such beauty and thank God I’m alive with my family. As I start to write, my heart is beginning to race, my palms are sweating. I’m not as comfortable as I was just a few moments ago. I know all of you know the story of the attack on our ship, the USS LIBERTY, by the government of Israel, but it needs to be repeated.

Breaking Down the Barriers to 9/11 Truth.

An Essay
By JWTruther
December 2007

“Our brains work hard to make us think we are doing the right thing, even in the face of sometimes overwhelming evidence to the contrary.”
Elliot Aronson -Social Psychologist

There is a methodology to persuading others of the validity of our message, a technique to understanding and helping them overcome certain obstacles, barriers they may not even know exist.

I’m sure many of us in our movement at one time or another, have been frustrated by attempting to convince others of the validity of our views. Sometimes it can be compared to banging one’s own head against a brick wall, or trying to have a discourse with someone who has their fingers in their ears and is yelling “La La La La La “like a child.

My views when expressed to some have been initially met with ridicule and anger, but it is curious to note that when given the opportunity to put my case and steer them in the direction of the truth, after a period of what I like to call “brain digestion” most do come around.

CIA chief faces credibility test
By Adam Brookes
BBC News, Washington

CIA director General Michael Hayden has confirmed that his agency destroyed videotapes taken during the interrogations of two al-Qaeda suspects soon after 9/11.

His statement to CIA employees was widely reported nationwide by Thursday evening.

Gen Hayden - ex-Air Force Intelligence, ex-National Security Agency, amiable and widely respected - now faces a public test of his credibility.

It is a moment that seems to come to all CIA directors these days.

Think George Tenet - still widely referred to around Washington as Mr Slam Dunk, for his famous assertion that Iraq had stockpiled weapons of mass destruction.

Think Porter Goss, whose tenure at the agency was brief and fractious, and whose run-ins with senior spies led to resignations - which rapidly became public.
