A judge has delayed an upcoming hearing for five men accused of plotting the September 11 attacks due to suspicions that confidential defense emails were monitored, a lawyer said Wednesday.
The next preliminary hearing had been set to take place on April 22 at the US military base at Guantanamo. It was now scheduled for June 17-21, according to a Pentagon spokesman.
Lawyers for four of the accused had filed an emergency motion with presiding Judge Colonel James Pohl, seeking a delay in proceedings after revelations that defense emails and computer files had been compromised.
“Mike Heiliger, 59, said a woman holding several bags was telling runners who were picking up their pre-race packages in downtown Boston on Saturday (April 13) that they were going to die if they participated in the event,”
As I have watched the Boston Marathon tragedy unfold, my heart goes out to the victims and their families. I had similar feelings on 9/11/2001 and continue to pray for comfort for victims and due-process punishment of perpetrators in both tragedies.
Yes, there are similarities -- but there are also significant differences, particularly as we see how the investigation of the Boston crime scene unfolds. Boston: investigators seek to preserve every scrap of metal from the explosive device, each nail and steel ball bearing. They look for clues in how it was constructed, where materials were obtained, what were the goals, who ALL was involved. Very little jumping to conclusions as to WHO all was involved and WHY. Investigators and the public are determined to leave no stone unturned as criminal investigators welcome public input and seek to capture and bring to justice ALL perpetrators.

TRANSCRIPT AND REFERENCES:
Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the public—still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them—can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of "security."
9/11 Truth "CIVIL INFORMATION ACTIONS" are planned for this Saturday April 20, 2013 during the annual 420 rally and mass civil disobedience by protesters demanding the decriminalizing of marijuana possession laws in Canada. We still have stock-piles of ae911truth street ready brochures donated by supporters in Edmonton from my 2011 petition drive the brought in 900 plus signatures calling for a made in Canada public investigation of 9/11. These brochures will be shared with 420 protesters that's traditionally attended by thousands. (see past 420-911 Truth action - YouTube video) Other 9/11 Civil Information actions are being planned for Farmer's Markets info pickets and outside the gates to annual festivals such as Heritage Days, Folk Fest, Cariwest parades and as always the highly attended Fringe theatre festival in Edmonton this summer.

The following article may shed some light on the possibility of aircraft remote control on 9/11. It´s from April 10th, and it led to an article in Germany´s most read online newspaper. ( http://www.bild.de/digital/handy-und-telefon/hacker/per-app-ein-flugzeug... )

Researcher: Vulnerabilities in aircraft systems allow remote airplane hijacking
Lucian Constantin, IDG News Service
The lack of security in communication technologies used in the aviation industry makes it possible to remotely exploit vulnerabilities in critical on-board systems and attack aircraft in flight, according to research presented Wednesday at the Hack in the Box security conference in Amsterdam.
The presentation, by Hugo Teso, a security consultant at consultancy firm N.runs in Germany, who has also had a commercial pilot license for the past 12 years, was the result of the researcher’s three-yearlong research into the security of avionics.

WASHINGTON — Skilled in tracking foreign terrorists, Jarret Brachman once was a sought-after expert on Al Qaeda, advising several federal agencies and speaking regularly around the country.
Now the former research director of the Combating Terrorism Center, a think tank at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, has turned his focus away from Islamic militants. He spends most of his time consulting with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies about threats from domestic extremists and antigovernment militias.
"I have totally re-branded my career," Brachman said. "I still do the Al Qaeda stuff, but there's no interest, no demand.... We've broken Al Qaeda's back, strategically."
John Yoo, Dick Cheney and others have been banned from entering Russia in a move designed to retaliate, tit for tat, with Washington's ban on 18 Russian Citizens to the United States citing human rights violation. John Yoo tops the list. The story can be found at HuffPo: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/13/russia-responds-to-us-mag_n_307...
John Yoo is at the top of the list. He wrote "The Torture Memos" that allowed the U.S. to torture captured "terrorists." It was Yoo who created an environment that enabled the government to do this: in other words he weasel worded the law to make people think what they were doing was legal. Yoo with Viet Dihn wroteThe Patriot Act. Yoo, who teaches at Berkeley, is under constant scrutiny by the public: http://www.firejohnyoo.net/
Yoo, who like Obama, passes under the sobriquet of "constitutional scholar," shows his complete weakness of character in the short nonpareil video produced by Chasers War on Everything , a comedic group out of Australia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EwTPQjT0hA
Published on 12 Apr 2013 by Paula Che Kirman: EDMONTON, AB, CANADA : Mohammad Mahjoub tells his story on April 11, 2013 at the Telus Centre on the University of Alberta campus. Presented by APIRG and ECAWAR. For twelve long years, Mohammad Mahjoub, a torture survivor, has been detained without charge in Canada. He was held for lengthy periods in solitary confinement and later under house arrest -- all on the basis of secret information which the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) has admitted was likely obtained under torture. Finally, after twelve years, Mr. Mahjoub is permitted to travel outside Toronto, and he is bringing his demand for justice to the home base of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Mr. Mahjoub is one of five Muslim men who have been struggling for justice in Canada against so-called security certificates. Security certificates allow the government to indefinitely detain or deport people on the basis of their profile. He will tell his story as his speaking tour, which began in 2012, continues into Western Canada.
A 9/11 Free Fall
By Andrew Steele
McCain asked about free fall of Building 7 on TV
On April 9th, 2013 Senator John McCain appeared on C-SPAN's live call-in show Washington Journal. Identifying myself under a pseudonym, I asked him the following question:
"The National Institute of Standards and Technology asserts that the collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11 was caused by fire. Yet they acknowledge that the first 100 feet of that collapse took place at free-fall acceleration. Engineers will tell you that fire cannot do this, that the only method by which it can be accomplished is the use of pre-planted explosives.
How do you explain this discrepancy...of a hundred feet of free-fall, without the use of explosives?"
As the video shows, John McCain claimed ignorance, saying, "To tell you the truth, this is an area that I'm not very familiar...and if you would drop me a note and mention that we talked on C-SPAN, I'd be glad to get you a more complete answer. But...honestly, every once in a while I have to plead ignorance about an issue and this is one that I have not been involved in, but I'll be more than happy to look into it..."
John McCain, of course, is not ignorant of 9/11 Truth. He wrote the foreword for the Popular Mechanics book "Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts". In his essay "9/11 Conspiracy Myths: Truth Under Attack" which was adapted from his foreword for Popular Mechanics' book, McCain wrote:
"Any explanation for 9/11 must start and end with the facts. The evidence must be gathered and analyzed. Then—only then—can conclusions be drawn."
The Pentagon Attack: Eyewitnesses, Debris Flow and Other Issues – A Reply to Fletcher and Eastman, by John D. Wyndham.
This paper deals with issues raised in a November, 2012 letter to the Journal of 9/11 Studies by Tod Fletcher and Timothy E. Eastman. These involve eyewitness testimonies as analyzed by Jerry Russell and by David Ray Griffin in his book, “9/11 Ten Years Later,” together with other topics that include debris flow through the Pentagon interior, energy considerations, and questions previously unaddressed by the author.
Four appendices focus on inaccuracies in the Fletcher and Eastman letter; on David Griffin’s list of physical evidence items that, in his view, weigh against the 757 impact theory; on the testimony of the unfairly-maligned taxi driver, Lloyde England; and on Jerry Russell’s and David Griffin’s analyses of Pentagon eyewitnesses.

April 12, 2013
At the Journal of 9/11 Studies we have a new letter from Professor Lance de-Haven Smith.
The letter is titled Conspiracy Denial in the U.S. Media. Here's an excerpt:
"Many American journalists appear to be locked into a peculiar way of thinking that makes them blind to signs of political criminality in high office. This mindset is characterized by an apparent inability to differentiate groundless accusations of elite political intrigue from legitimate concerns about the integrity of U.S. political leaders and institutions. For some reason, when it comes to popular suspicions of schemes involving the nation’s political elites, many journalists in the United State make no distinctions. They categorize all such suspicions as “conspiracy theories,” which they assume are not only untrue, but wacky and paranoid."
Knives on airplanes. The phrase is like a cataract on a defining, horrific moment in American history. Think about it: every passenger with a knife in their pocket. Each person as potentially armed, potentially dangerous. Have we actually managed to convince ourselves that bladed weapons weren’t the preamble to the single greatest act of terrorism committed on United States soil? That’s myopic thinking, a reduction so absurd that it would be laughable if it weren’t actually happening. I mean it’s ridiculous; who in their right mind would allow blades of any size on aircraft traveling through U.S. skies after September 11, 2001? The Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The very same body tasked with finding and removing contraband items from passengers and their bags would still like to throw away shampoo bottles, but the knives can stay, within reason, of course. This is stunning amnesia, a brain fart the size of a continent.
What’s worse? Knives aren’t the TSA’s biggest problem – it’s all those explosives their agents still fail to find.
A Perfect Storm of New Weapons and Lax Security
An evangelical lawyer and professor from Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University on Wednesday warned that atheists were trying to “finish the job” that terrorists started when they attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2011.

Joe Camera is a veteran of the U.S.Navy, having served 30 years since 1983 on both active and reserve duty. He became aware of issues with the official reports of what happened on September 11th and decided to volunteer with AE911Truth by working to educate more veterans about the facts of what happened on that infamous day. In this episode of 9/11 Free Fall he talks about his outreach efforts and the need for veterans to speak out in support of a real investigation.

9/11 Families Want ME Probed Before Sifting for Remains
Posted: Monday, April 8, 2013 5:00 pm
By SARAH DORSEY
The city began sifting through 9/11 material again April 1 in search of human remains—but a group representing victims’ families wants the effort halted until the mishandling of DNA at the Medical Examiner’s Office can be investigated.
The 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters and WTC Victims last week also called for an independent auditor to monitor all 9/11 work at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, and for an investigator to review all previous World Trade Center samples and order them retested if needed.
Editor’s note: This is Part 9 of an extensive report by 9/11 researcher Adam Taylor that exposes the fallacies and flaws in the arguments made by the editors of Popular Mechanics (PM) in the latest edition of Debunking 9/11 Myths. We encourage you to submit your own reviews of the book at Amazon.com and other places where it is sold.
The Martin Luther King Conspiracy
Exposed in Memphis

The Conspiracy to Kill MLK: Not a Theory But a Fact
By Ira Chernus
April 04, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - Should the United States government be allowed to assassinate its own citizens? That question was in the air briefly not long ago. April 4 is an excellent day to revive it: On April 4, 1968, the government was part of a successful conspiracy to assassinate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
That’s not just some wing-nut conspiracy theory. It’s not a theory at all. It is a fact, according to our legal system.
In 1999, in Shelby County, Tennessee, Lloyd Jowers was tried before a jury of his peers (made up equally of white and black citizens, if it matters) on the charge of conspiring to kill Dr. King. The jury heard testimony for four full weeks.
Oscar winning writer-director Oliver Stone's new book, The Untold History of the United States, and accompanying televised documentary, looks back at events that helped shape America's complex history over the 20th century.
Stone says the aim of his project is to analyse "what America has done wrong, in the hope it can change".
The BBC's Komla Dumor was joined by Oliver Stone and by his co-author Peter Kuznick, a history professor at the American University in Washington.
Stunning video: Blaze engulfs skyscraper in Chechnya
Skyscraper Engulfed By Fire, Does Not Collapse
Building refuses to conform to post-9/11 understanding of physics
Paul Joseph Watson
April 4, 2013
The new understanding of physics since September 11, 2001, that limited fire damage can cause buildings to implode at almost free fall speed into their own footprints, was confounded once again as a 40-storey skyscraper in Chechnya was engulfed with flames for hours yet did not collapse.
Laura Katleman is a volunteer with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and has led several AE projects, including the 9/11 Family Member Petition on Change.org. Now she is one of the leaders of Operation Tip the Planet-- the first ever grassroots to global transmedia 9/11 anniversary event. Richard Gage briefly joins the broadcast with Laura to talk about this monumental outreach effort and implore 9/11 activists everywhere to take part in the planned D-Day for 9/11 Truth.
More about Operation Tip the Planet
On 25th of February this year Tony Rooke went to court in Horsham in the UK. He was refusing to pay the TV licence which is used to fund the BBC on the grounds that paying would constitute funding an organisation which was supporting terrorism. The BBC has refused to address any of the issues regarding the official explanation of 9/11 and has actually produced programs such as the ‘9/11 Conspiracy Road Trip’ which could only be described as blatant propaganda.
On the day Tony wasn’t allowed to show his evidence in the court but Tony is now organising an event in which he will show the three hours of prepared evidence to a ‘jury’ of 12 specially selected members of the general public and a large audience. Tony will produce a film of the event.

In America truth is offensive. If you tell the truth, you are offensive.
I am offensive. Michael Hudson is offensive. Gerald Celente is offensive. Herman Daly is offensive. Nomi Prins is offensive. Pam Martens is offensive. Chris Hedges is offensive. Chris Floyd is offensive. John Pilger is offensive. Noam Chomsky is offensive. Harvey Silverglate is offensive. Naomi Wolf is offensive. Stephen Lendman is offensive. David Ray Griffin is offensive. Ellen Brown is offensive.
Fortunately, many others are offensive. But how long before being offensive becomes
being “an enemy of the state”?
Throughout history truth tellers have suffered and court historians have prospered. It is
the same today. Gerald Celente illustrates this brilliantly in the next issue of the Trends
