In never-before-released photographs taken on Sept. 11, 2001, the shock, horror and gravity of the terrorist attacks can be read on the faces of President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, their wives Laura and Lynne, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, CIA Director George Tenet and other senior Bush and Cheney staffers.
The photos were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Colette Neirouz Hanna, coordinating producer for the Kirk Documentary Group, which covered the Bush administration in many films for FRONTLINE, including Bush’s War, Cheney’s Law and The Dark Side.

Future Strategy May Involve Approaching Individual AIA Chapters
"I was trying to appeal to the emotional side of these people, to their integrity, to the things that have brought them to the profession of architecture." — Richard Wallace
Undeterred by the sound defeat of its Building 7 resolution at the American Institute of Architects annual convention in May, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is already considering new ways to approach and educate the AIA’s members over the next year. "We think there are possibilities," says Ted Walter, AE911Truth's director of strategy and development. "There are ways to restructure the resolution. There are also ways, in working with people at the local chapters, to come up with more effective strategies for outreach over the next nine-to-twelve months."
Local Action Team Deems Outreach at Denver People’s Fair a Success
Fair-goers already knowledgeable about 9/11 Truth would stop by with friends and family, point to the displays, and explain the information to the others in their group.
For the eighth year in a row, Colorado 9/11 Truth's display at the People's Fair in Denver reached hundreds of people with information, brochures, and DVDs.
On March 20, 2000, as part of a trip to South Asia, U.S. President Bill Clinton was scheduled to land his helicopter in the desperately poor village of Joypura, Bangladesh, and speak to locals under a 150-year-old banyan tree. At the last minute, though, the visit was canceled; U.S. intelligence agencies had discovered an assassination plot. In a lengthy email, London-based members of the International Islamic Front for Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders, a terrorist group established by Osama bin Laden, urged al Qaeda supporters to “Send Clinton Back in a Coffin” by firing a shoulder-launched missile at the president’s chopper.
Seeking War to the End of the World By Robert Parry
July 19, 2015
Exclusive: Despite the disastrous Iraq War, neocons still dominate Official Washington’s inside-outside game, government policymakers coordinating with think-tank opinion leaders to keep world tensions high and money flowing to military projects, a process personified by Robert Kagan and Victoria Nuland, says Robert Parry.
Investigative reporter Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. You can buy his latest book, America’s Stolen Narrative, either in print here or as an e-book (from Amazon and barnesandnoble.com). You also can order Robert Parry’s trilogy on the Bush Family and its connections to various right-wing operatives for only $34. The trilogy includes America’s Stolen Narrative.

Devastating terrorist attacks which cause structures to collapse are helping researchers come up with safer building plans. The 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre, as well as the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, are just two which have been studied at the University of New South Wales to help researchers in their quest for more stable structures.
Catastrophic Science is a series produced by the University of New South Wales
A number of senior officials in the United States government and military gave warnings in the week before September 11, 2001, or early on the morning of September 11, that seem to have predicted the 9/11 attacks with chilling accuracy.
These men--as is described below--voiced concerns that Osama bin Laden would carry out an attack in the U.S. in the near future; warned that an al-Qaeda attack that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Americans could happen "at any time"; expressed concern that terrorists would attack the World Trade Center; warned about a "seminal event" occurring in the U.S. in which "hundreds, if not thousands" of Americans would be killed; said that "someone [is] going to attack us in a fashion we did not anticipate"; warned that "something big" was about to happen; and suggested the possibility of an attack taking place that would be equivalent to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, in which over 2,400 Americans died.

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with James G. Connell III- attorney at the U.S Defence Department, who represents Aamar al-Baluchi. Aamar stands accused of financing 9/11, and the CIA-backed Hollywood film Zero Dark Thirty even based a character on him. James explains how Hollywood producers and directors works with the CIA, and why the U.S considers itself to be exempt from many human rights treaties.

NIST : July 20-24, 2015 International Symposium on Forensic Science Error Management – Detection, Measurement and Mitigation
Is NIST trying to get ahead of the curve for how to handle forensic science errors in WTC reports?
Registration for the event has closed. Bummer. Maybe somebody nearby the event can interview some people at the event.
These are the types of events that we need to engage NIST at. This would have been a great forum to ask TOUGH questions about NISTS WTC 7 collapse study using their DIGITAL MODEL as PROOF of their THEORY. Would be good to bring up the measurement of the phase 2 of free-fall collapse in the WTC 7 report.
On behalf of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its partners, we are announcing the first-ever international symposium devoted exclusively to the topic of forensic science error management. Join us in Arlington, VA, July 20-24, 2015 for the International Symposium on Forensic Science Error Management – Detection, Measurement and Mitigation.
Organizers are planning the meeting around several tracks:

Last year, it was discovered that the FBI had attempted to infiltrate the legal defense team of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner. The defendant is charged, along with four others including Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM), of conspiring to commit the 9/11 attacks. As a result, the military trial was moved out for approximately one year to allow for an investigation into the FBI’s offense. Recently, Al-Jazeera reported that the trial has been moved out yet again because the Department of Justice team leading the investigation (of its own bureau) needs more time to complete its secret report. These delays highlight the absurdity of the case against these men and the contemptible abuse of justice that the military trial represents.
Apparently, it has been difficult for the Justice Department to explain why the FBI approached a member of defendant Ramzi bin al-Shibh’s legal team to “create a relationship with him that he was forbidden from disclosing.” That explanation became more difficult when it was learned that another member of Bin al-Shibh’s defense team had been cooperating with the FBI since late 2013.
In 2006, I had my first correspondence with Noam Chomsky about 9/11.
Almost 9 years later, I've had another correspondence. Here it is. I've done my best, and I've failed.
Hello. I'm writing to ask if your schedule has cleared up, and whether or not you're available for an interview on my show "We Were Lied To About 9/11." Again, I'm not going to talk to you about theories. I want to primarily talk about how important it is to acknowledge that we were lied to about 9/11, and how important it is for those with a voice to do their best to inform the public of that. The way it would work is, I would write out questions for you ahead of time so you can either familiarize yourself with the material or tell me you're not comfortable with a particular question and I would do away with it. Please consider. I think this would be a very important interview.
Last week Zacarias Moussaoui had a lawsuit thrown out by U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-Lagrange because of a filing error. The Oklahoman reports that the judge dismissed the suit because Moussaoui did not pay a $400 filing fee and failed to ask for the fee to be waived.
Moussaoui is serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole for his involvement in the planning of the 9/11 attacks and connections to Osama bin Laden. In 2005 Moussaoui said he was supposed to pilot a plane into the White House. Since his arrest Moussaoui has sought to expose what he says is funding from Saudi Arabia’s royal family.
In February, Moussaoui released a statement from prison detailing the role of Saudi Arabia’s royal family in financing terror attacks, including the 9/11 attacks. He also claimed that Saudi Arabia did not cut ties to al-Qaeda members in 1994. Moussaoui says he created a database of al-Qaeda donors and remembers some of the names.
The Saudi Embassy has denied any involvement in the 9/11 attacks and claimed the 9/11 Commission found the Saudi government and officials were not involved.
