propaganda, indoctrination of the younger generations. Polls show younger people are less likely to believe the official story
Ahead of the seventh anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, some New York City students took part today in a nationwide pilot program about educating youth about the attacks.
To kick off discussion of the anniversary, the National September 11th Memorial and Museum showed a short film called "9/11: Stories of Survival and Loss" to students at Millennium High School in Lower Manhattan. The eight-minute piece recounts the attacks from the perspectives of family members, survivors, and rescue workers, like retired Fire Lieutenant and 9/11 first responder Mickey Kross.
The memorial and museum is also working to identify teachers across the country to create a curriculum about the attacks.
I was surprised to have read the following entry on 911truth.org but not on Blogger; I assume it is acceptable to accredit the author/editor and post accordingly. If a number of airline personnel acknowledge 9/11 as an 'inside job', I would ask them to participate in our public vigils.

Three government whistle blowers addressed a crowd of four hundred at Peace Island’s Hope in a Time of Crisis conference last week in Saint Paul, Minnesota
The two-day conference was held at Concordia University. Throughout the two days speakers covering a broad range of subjects addressed the four hundred attendees. The conference’s proximity to the Republican National Convention was no coincidence, “It was planned specifically that way,” said conference organizer Dick Bernard, “It was our thought that we would have a lot of people gathered here from the protest community, so it would be somewhat easier to get speakers, and we also thought we’d get more publicity out of it.”
Richard Gage, AIA, of ae911truth.org, and a team of Los Angeles area architects and engineers, make a 911 truth presentation to the offices of Rep Henry Waxman.
Afterward, the team gathers, and they give their impressions and input on the presentation, the process, and the reaction.
Perhaps we should invite David Scott, chairman of CTBUH, to a live open debate. He says he has examined the truth movement's claims and finds in our movement "no credibility whatsoever."
"I believe that the NIST report is a responsible attempt to find the cause of the failure, however there are many questions that are not answered in any detail and several of these questions are already on the discussion forum. I think that with a responsible dialog and debate that the NIST report can be much better and clearer than it is in the current form.
Remember how the FBI was instructed to blame the Anthrax attacks on Al Qaeda by White House officials in 2001?
Well, according to Washington Post reporter and Assistant Managing Editor for Investigations at The Washington Post Marilyn Thompson, the US government ordered Fort Detrick's USAMRIID bioweapons facility to "tone down" its description of the Daschle anthrax as "weaponized."
Moreover, scientists originally found that an electrical charge and high-tech silicon-coating were added to the killer anthrax to make it more lethal. As pointed out by anthrax expert Dr. Meryl Nass:
9/11 Accomplices vie for US Presidency
Obama and McCain campaigns fan "war on terrorism" hysteria
By Larry Chin
Global Research, September 7, 2008
In his much-ballyhooed acceptance speech, Barack Obama declared that he would "finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11". If Obama wishes to be true to his promise, he could begin with his own running mate, Senator Joe Biden.
Biden and the ISI chief
Biden was one of several top Washington officials who met with Lieutenant General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) on and around September 11, 2001.
The ISI is a foreign branch of the CIA. "Al-Qaeda" is a covert operation that is managed by Anglo-American military-intelligence. Ahmad, the "9/11 money man" who delivered funds to alleged lead suicide hijacker Mohammed Atta prior to the attacks, met personally with Biden on September 13, 2001.
What Really Happened on September 11?

An Interview with David Ray Griffin
On September 11, I entertained a couple of house guests, senior journalists from Scandinavia. I remember watching in horror and disbelief the unfolding drama, as the United States was being subjected to multiple deadly attacks on-screen. I turned to the international affairs editor of a major Danish paper and told her "This could not have been done by al-Qaida." I am an Israeli and, as such, I have a fair "sixth sense" as to the capabilities of terrorists and their potential reach.
Enter David Ray Griffin. I was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance. He is emeritus professor of philosophy of religion and theology at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University. He has published over 30 books, including eight about 9/11, the best known of which is "The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Expose"
On Sunday 7th September, about 400 protestors marched in Brussels during the second edition of the United for Truth March.
Despite the bad weather and the fact that the March took place during the same day as another popular event, the the Belt (Belgian cycling event for the family), the number of protestors had doubled since the first edition of 2007. But measured against the enormous amount of work that went before it – months of campaigning in which literally thousands of posters had been put up – and the fact that the UFT-website announced that there would be at least 475 marchers, one cannot really say it was a tremendous success.
Plot of Clancy novel "Red Storm Rising" has eerie parallel to 9/11 and the war on terror, article from Mike Rivero at WhatReallyHappened.com :
I am a great admirer of the writer Tom Clancy, despite his tendency to portray the CIA as icky-sweet do-gooders who would never dream of doing the sorts of things we know the real CIA actually does do. But Clancy is a good writer and has created plausible scenarios in his books, one in particular of which comes to mind at the present time.
In the book, "Red Storm Rising", World War Three starts when a fictionalized USSR, economically unable to purchase the oil products it needs, simply decides to take them. In order to conceal what is in essence a war of conquest, the fictionalized USSR manufactures a provocation by staging a fake terrorist attack on a symbolically important building in Moscow. Faked evidence is used to pin the blame on a target nation, and the fictionalized USSR starts a war on two fronts; a "just cause" war which masks a second front moving to grab the oil fields. This is a very believable scenario to the public, and the book was a best seller. It's one of my favorites.
Thus it is with some amazement that I watch as the very people who turned that book into a huge commercial success seem oblivious to the parallels in the so-called "War On Terror".
Whereas the fictionalized USSR in "Red Storm Rising" required the plot device of a refinery disaster to kick off the story line, the United States has arrived in precisely the same situation as the fictionalized USSR in the book through chronic mismanagement. It is no secret that the United States is in and has been in serious financial trouble for decades. The total governmental debt of the United States is estimated at $17 trillion (with a "T"). The interest alone on the federal portion of the National Debt now exceeds the entire personal income tax collected from every tax payer in the nation. And, since the full interest payments are not being made, let alone the principle, the debt continues to skyrocket. Claims of an election year budget surplus, which ignored the debt entirely, were little more than a bookkeeping trick in which the government spent Social Security payments as if they were general funds, along with now-failed predictions of ever increasing economic growth.

Dr. Ayaad Assaad, who worked in the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease lab at Fort Detrick from 1989 to 1997, was interviewed yesterday by the Frederick News Post (the local paper in the area of Fort Detrick).
Dr. Assaad said of Ivins:
"He's a great man. He's honorable, sincere, honest and most important, he didn't kill five people and he didn't kill himself".
If Ivins didn't kill himself, that can only mean that he was murdered.

Why has our Peace Movement lacked the ability and will to stop two illegal, immoral, and atrocious wars? Perhaps it is an unwillingness to get out of our comfort zone and take some risks which might make an impact? Perhaps it is an unwillingness to be investigative journalists in order to learn, consider, and address our own U.S. history?
For those of you who are genuinely interested in learning and knowing your own U.S. history,--read Killing Hope by William Blum. Did you know that since 1945, our dear old Uncle Sam has invaded 50 sovereign countries,--overtly and covertly? Another important historical book is called The War On Truth by Nafeez Ahmed, the Executive Director of the Institute for Policy Research and Development in Brighton, England. Did you know the U.S. government has a past history of conducting 8 “false-flag” events starting with the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770? Better fasten your seat belts folks!

David Ray Griffin: Reported Cell Phone Calls from the 9/11 Planes - Further Reflections Evoked By Critique
Further Reflections Evoked by a Critique
by Prof. David Ray Griffin - Global Research, September 7, 2008
Earlier this year, Andrew Kornkven posted a comment and a blog critical of my discussion, in Chapter 17 of my book 9/11 Contradictions, of reported cell phone calls from the 9/11 airliners. In this reply, I respond to both of these criticisms, referring to former as his "Comment," to the latter as his "Blog." (All quotations are from the Blog unless otherwise indicated.) Although Kornkven's criticisms are based on confusions and other errors, my response to them has led me to report some information about this issue that I had not previously published, although much of it is in my most recent book, The+New+Pearl+Harbor+Revisited. This distinction means that, although many of my comments, especially in the first parts of this essay, consist of responses to confused criticisms (which the reader will probably want to move through quickly), this essay does, especially in its later parts, contain several points of great importance.
from DW-WORLD.DE DEUTSCHE WELLE
"Critics find themselves accused of conspiracy theories, but the biggest conspiracy is to be found in the official 9/11 version of the US government which maintains that Osama bin Laden, from a cave in Afghanistan, along with 19 young Arabs, combined to carry out the most perfidious attack in the history of mankind,"
Italian film-maker Giulietto Chiesa, who was in Berlin for a screening of his documentary ("ZERO") which questions the official US version of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has called for an international tribunal to probe events.
Chiesa was in Berlin at the weekend for a screening of his film which features, among others, novelist Gore Vidal and playwright Dario Fo as well as retired American professor of philosophy David Ray Griffin who advances conspiracy theories that contradict mainstream accounts of events of 11 September, 2001.
