The 9/11 Commission: Underfunded, Stonewalled, and Conflicted

Guys, I've been working on a column on 9/11 for a few months now, and it's turning out to be much longer than I originally intended it to be. It's actually nearly book-length now, with over 200 pages completed. My goal is to make it as readable and accessible as possible -- almost a "9/11 Inside Job for Dummies."

Thought I'd share a sample chapter/section with you on the 9/11 Commission. Still needs to be edited down, properly footnoted, and corrected for syntax, but I thought I'd pass it along. Let me know if there's anything I got blatantly wrong, or anything you'd suggesting adding:

Keith Olbermann Delivers One Hell Of a Commentary on Rumsfeld

OlbermannBlastsRumsfeldOnFacism_0001.jpg

Keith had some very choice words about Rumsfeld’s "fascism" comments tonight. Watch it, save it and share it.

For video links see here

Olbermann delivered this commentary with fire and passion while highlighting how Rumsfeld’s comments echoes other times in our world’s history when anyone who questioned the administration was coined as a traitor, unpatriotic, communist or any other colorful term. Luckily we pulled out of those times and we will pull out of these times.

Remember - Rumsfeld did not just call the Democrats out yesterday, he called out a majority of this country. This wasn’t only a partisan attack, but more so an attack against the majority of Americans.

The transcript of Keith’s comments tonight is available below the fold.

The Road Behind, The Road Ahead.

Smart and ingenious, offers no implied distinction between benevolent and diabolical.

The blurring of the line between church and state, was the strongest signal to many people (not enough at the time) that George was a piece of shit from day one, if only for his willingness to blur that very line. He demonstrated his willingness to burn the constitution, before he was even elected by so publicly flaunting his faith "respecting one form of religion, at the loss of another". He sent this message to the people who forgot why this was a dangerous thing, and also to the very people who knew how this could be played to financial gain. A piece of scum, no matter how you try to clean it up.

9/11 was a bet, a bet played by a group of very calculating people. Beyond calculating the necessary demolition techniques, the DoD foil, and the extent of media and every other manipulated complicity possible.... their BIGGEST gamble was most likely; What level of gullibility had the populous attained?

My suspicion, is that the timing of 9/11 was narrowed into a window of opportunity, "just before it will be too late to get away with it." Gullibility through heavy mass media addiction, debit loading, mental distance between the concepts of possible vs. plausible, the growing popularity of Religiosity, and the emerging global decline of American respectability in general.... all of that, vs. an America waking up on her own, facing her GDP slack-y-ness, and a re-emergence of secular pragmatism.

Actual Reality, Interpretation, and Shared Reality - The Preservation and Perpetuation of Power in the Information Age

Freeze time, if you could, and you could describe the world in terms of what is where, and you would do a pretty good job of describing reality as it exists at that moment. Since time never freezes, though, what you would be describing is incomplete. Absent are the directions in which things are moving, changing, evolving—pick your word here. Take your freeze frame of reality and move it (again if you could) and you would notice after considerable study, some patterns. Some people tending to move towards food and ingesting it--we assume they are hungry. Others wiggle in ways that manipulate raw materials into the shape of a Mercedes Benz. Follow those movements backward and forward in time and you may begin to understand the process taking place as commerce, labor, etc.—a more complex pattern than animals feeding but no less discernable as a pattern of activity and motion comprising a part of the whole of reality. Play the tape in real time and you will find veritable weather patterns of human activity, like the weather predictable to some degree but subject to dramatic changes from even a slight unexpected and/or imperceptible shift in one variable or another. We can draw the conclusion that reality is far more complex than any one of us can grasp, which is not surprising given that our tool for grasping reality, our conscious mind interpreting the input from our senses, is extraordinarily complex yet only a tiny part of that reality we strive to understand.

Ryanair to allow mobile calls at 30,000ft

An article in the "Travel News and Comment" section of the Times of London yesterday (30-August 2006, but reported on Yahoo news today), by Mark Ferry has the headline:


Ryanair to allow mobile calls at 30,000ft

I will not post the entire article here, please click the headline which is a
link to the article.

An important quote from Ryanair spokesman is "Ryanair will soon enable
passengers to use their mobile phones and electronic communications devices in
the air, just as they do on the ground. That means they will be able to pass on
the good news to workmates, friends and family that they are travelling on
another on-time flight with Europe's most punctual airline."

The importance of this article to the 9/11 truth movement is obvious. 
The simple question is why all the fanfare about this new technology, when calls
from airplanes were obviously not a problem on September 11th 2001??  Who
can ever forget "Hi mom this is Mark Bingham"??

I've tried to post comments raising this question on the Times website to

For anyone who missed it

This was the first little movie I did before "What's the Truth?", it's called "Ask Questions, Demand Answers";

Sign the "No Building Theory" Petition here! Only a "Reality Hugger" wouldn’t!

^ Caught those s.o.b's faking the Towers right there! Anyone who’s going to deny it just can’t handle the idea that those Towers were PLANETED folks! It just defies the laws of physics to think otherwise. Obviously they wouldn’t just collapse without any resistance. I mean a plane hitting the Towers with little resistance because it’s travelling at 500mph, with wings full of jetfuel making it like a battering ram at that velocity, crashing into buildings designed to absorb exactly such an impact is one thing. Clearly the planes were faked to, but the faked buildings is what its all about! I know all the “lielings” and "reality huggers" will come here talk trash, make easy arguments that I’ve got no reply to, but they can all just go slush their drivel, who cares about facts when your dealing with such a serious subject as 9/11?

Here’s the research;

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcRs1fv8i3I of a video of an explosion caught on tape along with the firefighters reactions. This happened at approximately 10.15am.

99% of 9/11 Truthers Believe Planes Hit The Buildings

I wanted to put this up so any curious, uncommited truth seekers visiting this blog could see it. I believe there needs to be a very stringent and public seperation established by the majority of the 911 Truth Movement from those who have, shall we say, less than stable viewpoints, ie, no-planers. Whether np's are sincere or diabolical, they are harmful to the movement at large. Their ridiculous hooey is easy prey for the mass media to magnify and put before the uninformed sheeple. Their aggressive, insulting blog infiltrations disrupt and distract decent truthers from their quest.

By all means, no-planers, post away. You will only prove my point :)

9/11 Blogs Infiltrated

Is there really any question that all of the 9/11 blogs and websites have been infiltrated by the government and FBI? It is of great importance to some people that the truth not be known and they have come into our internet spaces to give us hell until we give it up! We can usually tell who they are because they don't identify themselves and the comments they leave are meant to discourage us. This is the work of people who wish that the truth not be known. DO NOT BE DISTRACTED.

These people spend most of their time trying to correct and mislead us instead of offering ideas or solutions. They don't have any interest in finding out the truth of the events of 9/11. Their main objective is that we turn against each other and begin to question the 9/11 truth movement. The reality is that no matter what they say, no matter what they try to do....this movement is not only happening on the internet.

We're using the internet to spread the word but that doesn't mean that the 9/11 truth movement is dependent on it. Those who are infiltrating our sites might think that they are making an impact when a few website owners and bloggers get discouraged. The reality is that it goes way beyond the internet. The movement to find the truth is in every country in the world and those who have infiltrated our sites do not matter. How will they discourage the THOUSANDS of people already in route to New York City to meet with the crew members of the film LooseChange ? How will they discourage the THOUSANDS people already in route to Washington, D.C. to meet with the members of 911citizenscourts.com ? And how are they going to stop the THOUSANDS of people on their way to Crawford, TX. to join Campdemocracy.org ? Most of those people didn't find out about those events by visiting our blogs or websites at all. And the best idea comes from the crew of Loose Change who have asked that everyone attending their event bring camera's and record everything they see and turn their cameras onto anyone who causes any violence or disruptions.

Dear Anti-War Movement

I'm posting this today to show you something. The 9/11 Truth Movement is WELL AWARE of what's taking place in Iraq. The 9/11 Truth Movement is WELL AWARE of the lies, and the corruption behind the Iraq War. It breaks our hearts just as much as yours to know that our soldiers are fighting, dying and killing innocents over there for a lie. Part of the reason we do what we do is to try and bring them home.

NONE of this. I repeat, NONE of this would be possible if not for 9/11. Has any of this information helped you to bring the troops home? No, it hasn't.

Instead of focusing on the small lies, why not focus on the big one that can end this nightmare?

In other words... We're on your side. Why can't you be on ours?

Petition to Reinstate Mike Malloy

To: Air America Radio
It sends a very bad signal to the growing majority of progressives in America to silence an uncompromising liberal voice such as Mike Malloy. Just as voters reach a tipping point, the credibility of Air America is seriously damaged by this action. For the sake of his current and future listeners, and all of the other hosts on Air America, reconsider this awful decision and give us Mike back.
