WASHINGTON—Saying they felt a duty to reveal what truly transpired on September 11, 2001, numerous high-ranking federal officials announced publicly Tuesday that the United States government was responsible for destroying just the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
Representatives from the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, and half a dozen other government bureaus revealed at a morning press conference that they were responsible for the development, funding, and execution of a plan to take down 1 World Trade Center in New York’s Financial District. Describing their mission as an unqualified success, officials noted that the completion of their objective was followed 17 minutes later by a separate suicide attack on 2 World Trade Center by al-Qaeda operatives piloting a hijacked airliner.

INTENDENTE ALVEAR, Argentina — An American who sought refuge in Argentina after he was accused of killing his wife in 2002 should be sent back to the United States, Argentina’s Supreme Court announced this week.
The decision to extradite the American, Kurt Sonnenfeld, who moved to Argentina in 2003 after prosecutors in Denver charged him with first-degree murder, ends a long dispute between the United States Justice Department and local courts in Argentina.
Mr. Sonnenfeld, who has claimed that he has proof that the American government had prior knowledge of the Sept. 11 attacks, and who has gained a following among like-minded conspiracy theorists, has said the government and prosecutors colluded to frame him for his wife’s death in order to silence him. The Denver district attorney’s office has denied these allegations.
A Libyan man accused of helping plan al Qaeda bombings of US embassies in Africa in the late 1990s has died of liver cancer in New York only days before his trial was due to begin.
Abu Anas al-Libi and a co-defendant had pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges stemming from the attacks in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 that killed 224 people and injured 5,000.
US legal authorities say the 50-year-old died in hospital after being taken from a detention centre.
Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara said in a letter to US District Judge Lewis Kaplan that Liby suffered “sudden complications arising out of his long-standing medical problems” and died on January 2. Prosecutors said Liby’s lawyer was with him throughout the day and an imam was present at the hospital.
Al-Libi’s son accused the US authorities of sending his father back to prison prematurely after an operation when his condition was not stable.
“We hold the US legally responsible for the death of my father,” he said.
Does anyone know the approximate turning radius of AA77 on its final down screw towards the Pentagon?
I have found a dubious link based on allegedly released data from the airplanes data recorder (not containing any NTSB identification logo) which puts the radius at 3.2 miles. With this radius, the turning was not a feat, but a long protracted yawn...
"The U.S. House Intelligence Committee has denied a Florida congressman’s request for access to 28 classified pages from the 2002 report of Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, told BrowardBulldog.org he made his request at the suggestion of House colleagues who have read them as they consider whether to support a proposed resolution urging President Obama to open those long-censored pages to the public.
“Why was I denied? I have been instrumental in publicizing the Snowden revelations regarding pervasive domestic spying by the government and this is a petty means for the spying industrial complex to lash back,” Grayson said last week, referring to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden".
Canadian filmmaker Adnan Zuberi joins James to discuss his award-winning 2013 documentary, 9/11 in the Academic Community: Academia’s Treatment of Critical Perspectives on 9/11. Zuberi also discuss his own experiences as a university student contributing to his creation of the film, as well as more recent projects addressing geopolitics and the “war on terror.”
9/11 in the Academic Community features interviews with several notable academics, including John McMurtry, Graeme MacQueen, Lynn Margulis, and Walter G. Pitman, to examine scholars’ critical perspectives on the events of September 11, 2001 and how these have been received in their respective academic fields. Contrary to the widely-held notion that academe is a bastion of free thought and inquiry, university faculty and administrators are often indifferent, if not hostile toward, colleagues that study or take public stances on controversial topics.

Richard Gage AIA and AE911Truth Chief Operating Officer Kelly David discuss the next steps towards 9/11 justice that will happen in the new year, including plans to sue NIST for withholding information from FOIA requests. As well, they discuss how supporters can help AE911Truth in this important and historic effort.
Dr. Niels Harrit is professor of chemistry at the University of Copenhagen and is one of the key authors of the WTC nano-thermite paper. In this episode of 9/11Free Fall he lays out the evidence in that paper and also discusses a lawsuit he's filed in response to ridiculous attacks on him in the press. He also offers insight into the assault on intellectual freedom that arose in society as a result of the 9/11 cover-up.

CIA agents “impersonated Senate staffers” while the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was producing its report
“According to sources familiar with the CIA inspector general report that details the alleged abuses by agency officials,” journalists Ali Watkins and Ryan Grim reported, “CIA agents impersonated Senate staffers in order to gain access to Senate communications and drafts of the Intelligence Committee investigation.”
A source “familiar” with the inspector general report, which remains classified, told Huffington Post, “If people knew the details of what they actually did to hack into the Senate computers to go search for the torture document, jaws would drop. It’s straight out of a movie.”

The man who claims he killed the world’s most wanted terrorist is now being probed for saying too much about the mission.
The former Navy SEAL who ignited a controversy when he publicly claimed credit for killing Osama bin Laden is under investigation for possibly leaking official secrets, The Daily Beast has learned.
When reached for comment, Ed Buice, an NCIS public affairs officer, confirmed “The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is in receipt of an allegation that Mr. O’Neill may have revealed classified information to persons not authorized to receive such information. In response, NCIS has initiated an investigation to determine the merit of the allegations.”
The news that O’Neill is being investigated for potential criminal acts hasn’t been previously reported.
