Part 1: THE TRUTH
The lead sponsors of the legislation to uncover the 28 pages of the Congressional report (link is external) on the attacks of 9-11 were Representative Walter Jones and Senator Rand Paul, two Republicans in fact, both practically unique in their unabashed opposition to our constant wars of intervention. The release of the 28 pages is a victory for Americans who yearn for peace. It comes at a desperate moment in human history. It is imperative and urgent that peace activists take full advantage of the released 28 pages.
The essential truth about the 28 pages is that our own government, (Bush administrations followed by Obama administrations), ever since 9-11, has covered up Saudi Government complicity in 9-11. All the while, our government has continued to maintain very close relations, especially with the Saudi Intelligence Agency and the Saudi military.
Here are the entries related to this at www.historycommons.org
Correction: The entry at www.historycommons.org says “Saudi Obstructionism,” not John O’Neill.
Hopefully you’ve heard about the partial release of the 28 redacted pages from the Joint Congressional Inquiry Into 9/11. There are still many redactions throughout the pages.
Here is an excerpt from the pages:
“A CIA report also indicates that Bassnan traveled to Houston in 2002 and met with an individual who was (redacted). The report states that during that trip a member of the Saudi Royal Family provided Bassnan with a significant amount of cash. FBI information indicates that Bassnan is an extremist and supporter of Usama Bin Laden, and has been connected to the Eritrean Islamic Jihad and the Blind Shayk;” - pg. 417
Abdussattar Shaikh was the FBI counter-terrorism informant in San Diego housing Hazmi and Mihdhar, the first 9-11 hijackers to come to America and they were being tracked by the CIA and Saudi Intelligence - some would say "assisted by"
Files 17 and 18 tell us Abdussattar Shaikh, the FBI counter-terrorism informant in San Diego housing 9/11 hijackers Hazmi and Mihdhar was code named "Muppet".
Code named Muppet
The following article deals with the CIA's support of, involvement with, and "manipulation" of Hollywood.
Its pretty long and more thorough with recent films like Argo and Zero Dark Thirty, but the affect of 9/11 on Hollywood is repeated constantly.
But, whats particularly interesting is the specific notation and time spent on Ben Affleck's relation to the CIA:
"The long relationship between Affleck, a prominent Hollywood liberal, and Langley seems particularly perplexing. But the mutual admiration has paid off handsomely for all concerned."

'We Are All Osama': Bin Laden's Son Pledges To Continue Father's Fight
Osama bin Laden's son is reportedly planning revenge on the U.S. after his father's death.
In a 21-minute speech titled "We Are All Osama" posted to a militant website, Hamza bin Laden pledged to continue the militants' fight against the U.S.
In a translation of the speech posted by the Daily Pakistan, Hamza bin Laden said, "We will continue striking you and targeting you in your country and abroad in response to your oppression of the people of Palestine, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and the rest of the Muslim lands that did not survive your oppression."
He continued, "As for the revenge by the Islamic nation for Sheikh Osama, may Allah have mercy on him, it is not revenge for Osama the person but it is revenge for those who defended Islam."
Another reason the 9/11 Commission is discredited.
Christmas Tree Bomber’s Appeal Puts FBI Entrapment In Spotlight July 10, 2016
By Derrick Broze
An appeal from the man accused of plotting to blow up a Christmas tree in downtown Portland, Oregon accuses the FBI of entrapping the man on charges of terrorism.
On Wednesday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments related to surveillance and possible entrapment of Mohamed Mohamud, the man convicted of attempting to blow up a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon in 2010.
Thanks to Walter Jones, Stephen Lynch, Thomas Massie, Terry Strada, and Kaitlyn Strada.
Amazing how that works.
Shortly after September 11, 2015, a 14 year old North Texas boy, Ahmed Mohamed, dubbed “The Clock Boy”, became a worldwide media sensation.
Recently in late June 2016, the Clock Boy was again in national headlines with his temporary return to North Texas.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about 9/11 is that people often ask us to “Never Forget” while at the same time never learning, let alone remembering, anything about the crimes. This is a beautiful example of Orwell’s concept of Doublethink in which citizens covet their own unconsciousness in order to avoid acknowledging uncomfortable facts. One such fact is that we were given a string of false, contradictory official accounts for the failure of the national air defense systems that day and the last one given is the most unbelievable.
The ever-changing accounts for the failure to intercept any of the four hijacked planes began two days after the attacks. That first account was provided in an official hearing to confirm General Richard Myers as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS). Myers testified that no fighter jets were scrambled to intercept any of the hijacked flights until after the Pentagon was hit. Although Myers did not sound terribly confident in his knowledge, people thought he should have been, considering that more than 48 hours had passed and he had been serving as acting CJCS during the attacks.
A second, contradictory story was given five days later, when the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) provided a partial timeline of the notifications it had received from the Federal Aviation Administration and the responses that followed. The timeline showed that NORAD was notified about the hijacking of Flight 175 at 8:43 am, a full 20 minutes before it impacted the south tower of the WTC. Moreover, F-15 interceptor jets from Otis Air Force Base were said to be airborne by 8:52, having been scrambled in response to the first hijacking.
How many people have we killed that had nothing to do with 9/11? Stop ALL of the wars NOW!!!
