My letter to the editor of my local paper made it in for the Buffalo premiere of Experts Speak Out. It made the print edition too. Had a 250 word limit. Hope there is a nice turnout. I am heading there myself later. News of other events has been a bit scarce I'm sorry to say. I'll post how it goes tonight in Buffalo.

Has anyone ever wondered why so many people do not believe the “official” 9/11 narrative? Well 1,700 reasons are coming to Buffalo today, at 9 p.m. at the Market Arcade Cinema in the form of a 90-minute documentary by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (ae911truth.org). See 911expertsspeakout.org for venue information or view it online.
Ae911truth is a organization of of 1,700 licensed and/or degreed professionals who petition for a new investigation, into the destruction of all three World Trade Center buildings that fell that day. Yes, that’s right, I said three, and those reading this who did not know three buildings fell that day need to be there the most. WTC 7 was a 47-story steel-and-concrete building that free-falls through itself for over 100 feet. It drops like a stone accelerating at the same rate as gravity. Many have never seen the destruction of WTC Building 7 and those who have, never see 9/11 the same again. They can suspend the Constitution but not the laws of physics. The official story is easily falsifiable. We must begin viewing 9/11 and the “war on terror” in a new context. These highly respected professionals in the fields of structural/mechanical engineering, architecture, physics, chemistry, and more risk everything by speaking out publicly about the glaring flaws in the NIST reports and the vast evidence ignored by investigators. See the facts and join the discussion.
Posted last week (3/28/12) on RT, It has been awhile since the old CIA/FBI Turf feud meme has been dusted off, but I haven't seen much discussion regarding this operation foxden so it seemed worth posting.
In 1999 the US had the opportunity to potentially stop the 9/11 attacks in New York City, but failed due to internal disputes between the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigations and National Security Agency.
In that same year the Taliban had settled on a license with an American company, Afghan Wireless Communications, to build a cell-phone and Internet system in Afghanistan.
The stealthy arrangement which was dubbed “Operation Foxden,” would have given access to the US government to monitor all al-Qaeda and Taliban phone calls and e-mails.
“Had this network been built with the technology that existed in 2000, it would have been a priceless intelligence asset,” said an unnamed former NSA official to David Rose a contributing editor for Vanity Fair.

Correcting the ‘fairy tale’: A SEAL’s account of how Osama bin Laden really died
Published: 12:42 AM 11/07/2011 | Updated: 3:28 PM 11/07/2011
By Vince Coglianese
Forget whatever you think you know about the night Osama bin Laden was killed. According to a former Navy SEAL who claims to have the inside track, the mangled tales told of that historic night have only now been corrected.
“It became obvious in the weeks evolving after the mission that the story that was getting put out there was not only untrue, but it was a really ugly farce of what did happen,” said Chuck Pfarrer, author of Seal Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden.
In an extensive interview with The Daily Caller, Pfarrer gave a detailed account of why he believes the record needed to be corrected, and why he set out to share the personal stories of the warriors who penetrated bin Laden’s long-secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
In an interview with Howard Stern, legendary singer Tony Bennett disagrees as to the premise for the 9/11 attacks. Although it appears that he takes a bit of the "Ron Paul" approach to 9/11 in that it was blow back, one wouldn't know that from the headline offered. Sadly, Mr. Bennett was already being raked over the coals by the Fox News morning shills which will undoubtedly be parroted throughout the day. The comments weren't very supportive either. I tried to posting some support for Mr. Bennett but I doubt my injection of truth will get past the 9/11 comment police. Worth a try, no registration required.
The legendary Tony Bennett appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show and talked about his antipathy to war, borne out of having served in WWII.
“But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right,” Bennett said.
In a soft-spoken voice, the singer disagreed with Stern’s premise that 9/11 terrorists’ actions led to U.S. military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In this 60 minutes piece with Scott Pelley, we learn that the NSA was tracking at least 3 of the alleged 9/11 hijackers and had information of the plot that was not "analyzed correctly". Tom Drake was a senior analyst with the NSA who had developed technology back in January of 2001 that if implemented may have been able to stop the attacks. That is assuming of course the administration at the time would lifted a finger to do anything. However, this is good example on how whistleblowers are treated and why anyone with high enough inside knowledge of the attack cannot or will not come forward.

I wanted to share this article regarding the public narrative about bin Laden, Pakistan and how its being sold. The full article can be found here: http://www.margieburns.com/blog/_archives/2011/5/6/4811251.html
Pasted May 6, 2011; Margie Burns; www.margieburns.com
With thousands of Afghanis, Iraqis, and U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since Sept. 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden, the fugitive icon of terrorist networks, was finally tracked down and killed in Pakistan. And not just in Pakistan, either, but in the city of Abbottabad, in the neighborhood of the Pakistan Military Academy.
Let’s say this clearly, just once: Part of the unnecessarily prolonged failure to catch bin Laden, and a very large part of the tragic diversions of two bloody wars, can be laid to the account of the large media outlets in the U.S. Foreign policy under the Bush administration was dictated by selfish concerns, and corporate media outlets almost entirely went along. Foreign policy was influenced—to put it nicely—by politics, and politics was influenced—again, to put it nicely—by money, and the big media almost entirely went along
The 3rd film in the Zeitgeist documentary series by writer/producer Peter Joseph will debut Jan 15, 2011 in over 60 countries and 20 languages. Immensely popular, The Oct. 2007 release of Zeitgiest was one the most watch internet films ever enlightening vast numbers of people, including yours truly, to the lies behind the 9/11 attacks. The 2nd film in the series entitled "Addendum" places much less emphasis on the crimes of the state and features The Venus Project and its founder Jacque Fresco. The Venus Project offers its' vision of what the future could be if mankind were able to break its shackles from the current monetary system that holds it down and threatens to destroy it.
This third installment entitled Zeitgeist: Moving Forward looks to focus on making the transition from our repressive monetary system to what it terms as a "resource based economy" featured in Addendum. The theatrical trailer for Moving Forward is below. All Zeitgeist films can be viewed at zeitgeistmovie.com
I, for one, am looking forward to its' release. It seems that most documentary films I have seen do well in pointing out the problems with 9/11 and other facets of our corrupted society, but do little in the way of offering ideas for change. We'll see what this 3rd evolution of this series offers up.
It may not exactly what we would have expected but there is chance that we may finally see former VP Dick Cheney face some form of justice for his long list of high crimes. It may not be for his suspected criminal and treasonous acts regarding his involvement in 9/11, but for a bribery scheme to Nigerian officials for natural gas contracts for Halliburton subsidiary KBR. Keith Obleramann explains the Nigerian charges and that a warrant for Dick Cheney's arrest will be issued in the coming days. He also reveals how the Obama administration worked with (i.e. colluded) the GOP to influence the Spanish court to ignore its mandate to investigate 6 Bush administration officials for torture crimes sourcing a recently leaked cable. The source article regarding Dick Cheney's arrest warrant (updated) can be found here:
Keith has law professor Jonathan Turley explain the unique position this action puts the US in,
A poll posted at Trutv's website asks [which is] "most likely to be true". Pitted against common myths and folklore, the CIA planned 9/11 ranked #1 with almost 30% of the vote. The poll is still open, go over and vote. There is also an opportunity to submit your own "conspiracy tip" as well. I submitted a link to Jon Cole's latest thermate experiment. Feel free to submit your own too.
vote Most likely to be true is
CIA planned 9/11
Government contact with ETs
Illuminati control world events
Global warming is a hoax
Moon landings were faked
Just an observation, it's funny that 9/11 truthers are often conflated with moon landing deniers when so few often deny its authenticity. Maybe its because when they got back some 300 scientists around the world received moon rocks? I'd like to see 300 scientists around the world get WTC dust samples. I would have liked to see how holocaust denial stacked up too.

In this interview with Judge Napolitano, former MN Governor Jesse Ventura says he will be covering the Pentagon attack on 9/11. Although the official website for his show does not mention the 9/11 show, Jesse mentions here in the interview.
Many of us remember how John Stewart took on the financial industry after a not so well thought out burst of opinion by CNBC's Rick Santelli on the floor of the CME. It lead to many discussions around the water cooler and the MSM elite had to send out a veteran cronie in Jim Cramer to try and smooth things out before some real truths about our financial system surfaced to the public conscienceness. With any luck, John Stewart's amdonishment of our pathetic and spineless congress in not passing the Zigroda 9/11 First Responder Health Care Bill will have the same effect. Here it is in case you missed it.

KBDI, PBS in Denver CO, continues to be the leader for alternative programming by premiering the movie "Camp FEMA" produced by William Lewis and Gary Franchi to air this Saturday, March 6th. KBDI has been the pioneer station for alternative programming by offering up controversial documentaries that help challenge the status quo and educate a dormant public about what is really going on around them. It began with Aaron Russo's "Freedom to Facism" and went onto other notable documentaries such as Kyle Hence & Ray Nowosielski's "Press for Truth" and Richard Gage's "Blueprint for Truth". Both of these documentaries still rank 3rd and 5th respectively as most talked about on KBDI's website.

The client list from the software programmer believed to have crashed his plane into the Echelon* building in Austin Texas reads like a guidebook to defence contractors with connections to 9/11, NSA and Homeland Security.
The FBI had his webpage removed (the screen message previously said that the FBI had it removed) from the internet, but of course the client list from the webpage has been archived and has corporations on it such as Interstate Electronics Corporation, which needed Mr. Stack’s help on developing a GPS-based Fight Management System of all things. IEC is a wholly owned subsidiary of L-3 which is a defence contractor with obvious Homeland Security and NSA connections. There is also this report from Wayne Madsen on Oped News of an L-3 consultant to the NSA who had watched a live feed of the first 9/11 plane impact as it happened. L-3 is included among corporations which were investigated by the SEC for unusual stock put-options in relation to 9/11.
My article submission was accepted and published at opednews.com. I was hoping for it to appear on the front page but alas, no luck. I also submitted a similar article to my local newspaper and the rochester democrat and chronicle. Will keep you posted if I see them published.

Millions of Messages Sent, but Only Handful Mention Al Qaeda Leader
By Margie Burns
Missing” White House emails retrieved from Bush administration records indicate that top Bush Justice Department officials had little interest in the pursuit of Osama bin Laden or Mullah Mohammed Omar, head of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), prolonged correspondence has pursued “missing” emails between the Bush White House and Bush’s attorney general, deputy attorney general, associate attorney general, Office of Public Affairs, Office of Legal Counsel and Office of the Inspector General, in the Justice Department.
After a lengthy search, President Obama’s Office of Information Policy, which handles FOIA requests, found emails pertaining to Osama bin Laden or to Mullah Omar only in Attorney General and Office of Public Affairs records from the Bush administration. Alberto Gonzales, previously Bush’s White House counsel and then Attorney General, did not use email.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Zacarias Moussaoui was a clown who could not keep his mouth shut, according to his old al-Qaida boss, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. But Moussaoui was surprisingly tame when tried for the 9/11 attacks — never turning the courtroom into the circus of anti-U.S. tirades that some fear Mohammed will create at his trial in New York.
And that wasn't the only surprise during Moussaoui's six-week 2006 sentencing trial here — a proceeding that might foreshadow how the upcoming 9/11 trial in New York will go.
Skeptics who feared prosecutors would be hamstrung by how much evidence was secret were stunned at the enormous amount of classified data that was scrubbed, under pressure from the judge, into a public version acceptable to both sides.
Prosecutors were surprised when they failed to get the death penalty — by the vote of one juror.
No one was more surprised than Moussaoui himself: At the end he concluded an al-Qaida member like him could get a fair trial in a U.S. court.
Jesse Ventura gives Alex Jones an inside look at his new TV show
August 25, 2009
Alex Jones visits with Jesse Ventura, who is working on a TruTV show dubbed ‘Conspiracy Theory’ and slated for a late fall release.
The former governor gives us a glimpse into his upcoming show, which will delve into and investigate various areas of ‘controversial history.’ Ventura won’t give away the episode topics, but does tell us that Alex will be part of the show, and that areas like 9/11 will be explored.
I'm posting this piece here for posterity and to keep note of some continuing reports that I have come across about the issue sharing of information between intelligence agencies or lack thereof. There's another similar report posted further down on my blog from CNN. This piece was originally entitled "What we learned from the 9/11 Report." It should be titled "What we HAVE NOT Learned from the 9/11 Report" if you are going to state in it that the problem still persists. Is this the report I'll be reading when the next 9/11 hits? After reading your article, it is painfully obvious to me what you haven't learned from the report. However, ignorance will not be bliss in this case.

Tawfiq bin Attash, currently being held at Guantanamo Bay, is one of the many detainees that president Obama was referring to in his "prolonged detention" speech that cannot be prosecuted via any legal manner such as a US court of law or military tribunal. Bin Attash is said to be the mastermind behind the USS Cole attack and assisted with the 9/11 plot. According to this blog posting, he is a key link to Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 attacks.
Although this was my first time learning of this particular blog, I came across the article via a reference at Glenn Greenwald's salon.com opinion on president Obama's speech. The blogger is described by Mr. Greenwald as an "ardent Obama supporter." Why this particular article was referenced I am not sure as its conclusion did not have anything to do with Glenn's article that referenced it. However, it is the writers conclusion why I felt it should be posted here. The article is well sourced so I feel confident in its accuracy.

PITTSBURGH – The government will begin taking land from seven property owners so that the Flight 93 memorial can be built in time for the 10th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, the National Park Service said.
In a statement obtained by The Associated Press, the park service said it had teamed up with a group representing the victims' families to work with landowners since before 2005 to acquire the land.
"But with few exceptions, these negotiations have been unsuccessful," said the statement.
Landowners dispute that negotiations have taken place and say they are disappointed at the turn of events.
The seven property owners own about 500 acres still needed for what will ultimately be a $58 million, 2,200-acre permanent memorial and national park at the crash site near Shanksville, about 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
The IFC Channel (Independent Film Channel) has released a new documentary entitled New World Order. It debuted an April 16th and is being shown on IFC on Demand Channel. I don't receive IFC on Demand so I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but I look forward to anyone here who does to post a review. I've seen the trailer and it featured Alex Jones and the 911 Truth Movement although these are not the only "conspiracies" it is supposed to cover. Here is the description as found on IFC's website:
It seems that the 9/11 commission's recommendation of an all encompassing, multi-billion dollar homeland security bureau turns out to be just as useless as their final report. According to this CNN News Video, Agencies still aren't communicating and sharing information as well as they should be as law requires.

Fear mongering seems to be the aim of this video news release stating we are still very much at risk and espousing the 9/11 Shura Council's predictions of the USA's downfall. The 9/11 Shura council is what the 5 Guantanamo detainees (which includes KSM) who have confessed to their roles in the 9/11 attacks are calling themselves. What those roles are I don't know, we're not given specifics. Read more about that in Joe's recent post below.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba – Two alleged orchestrators of the 2001 attacks on America casually declared their guilt on Monday in a messy and perhaps final session of the Guantanamo war crimes court. This week's military hearings could be the last at Guantanamo — President-elect Barack Obama has said he would close the offshore prison and many expect him to suspend the military tribunals and order new trials in the U.S.
Ramzi Binalshibh and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed architect of the terrorist attacks, were unapologetic about their roles during a series of outbursts as translators struggled to keep up and the judge repeatedly sought to regain control.
"We did what we did; we're proud of Sept. 11," announced Binalshibh, who has said he wants to plead guilty to charges that could put him to death. The judge must first determine if he is mentally competent to stand trial.
Mohammed shrugged off the potential death sentence for the murder of nearly 3,000 people in the Sept. 11 attacks.
I found this article by Paul Craig Roberts and thought I'd share it. It's not specifically about 9/11, but considering Mr Roberts is one of our most credible supporters, it seemed worthy of post. Peace all.
Whatever Happened To Western Morality? Are All Americans Guilty?
By Paul Craig Roberts, 1/3/2009
On the last day of the old year in CounterPunch, two Israelis, Jeff Halper who heads the Israeli peace movement ICAHD and Neve Gordon who is chairman of the department of politics and government at Ben-Gurion University, asked, "Where's the Academic Outrage Over the Bombing of a University in Gaza?"
"Not one of the nearly 450 presidents of American colleges and universities who prominently denounced an effort by British academics to boycott Israeli universities in September 2007 have raised their voice in opposition to Israel's bombardment of the Islamic University of Gaza earlier this week," report Halper and Gordon. They note that Columbia University president Lee C. Bollinger, who has in the past ignorantly insulted Islamic representatives, "has been silent."

WASHINGTON – The physical and mental abuse of detainees in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was the direct result of Bush administration detention policies and should not be dismissed as the work of bad guards or interrogators, according to a bipartisan Senate report released Thursday.
The Senate Armed Services Committee report concludes that harsh interrogation techniques used by the CIA and the U.S. military were directly adapted from the training techniques used to prepare special forces personnel to resist interrogation by enemies that torture and abuse prisoners. The techniques included forced nudity, painful stress positions, sleep deprivation, and until 2003, waterboarding, a form of simulated drowning.
Found this posted on opednews, thought it might be interesting. It appears Attorney General Michael Mukasey has been subpoenaed by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hard to say what will actually come of it, seeing the effectiveness of previous subpoenas such as to Karl Rove etc.. Of course, there's also executive privilege to get around. I see that in the first statement, it is requested that all documents be unredacted. The hearing is to take place November 18, 2008 at 10:00 am. Hopefully there will be some CSPAN coverage that can be posted. We'll see if there is any MSM coverage but I'm not holding my breath for any. Here is the list of documents being requested according to the subpoena:

Chemical Traces of High Explosives in WTC Debris
by Josh Mitteldorf
The standard way to demolish a steel-framed building is to apply cutter charges to the supporting beams. The cutter charges consist of finely-powdered aluminum mixed with iron oxide, with added sulfur. This mixture contains both fuel and oxidant – it needs no air – and it burns hot enough to melt steel. The trade name for this product is “Thermate.”
There is a science to placing the charges in such a way that the building falls inward. It requires a great deal of expertise to keep a tall building from toppling over sideways.
