Letter: Engineering the truth about 9/11 Sept 16, 2008
Americans love murder mysteries. Why is it then, seven years after the murders of 9/11, that the most outrageous conspiracy theory, proffered by those who benefited most, is the only one we are allowed to consider?
Put on your Sherlock Holmes cap and ask why in the more than 100-year history of high-rises there are only three examples of fire causing total skyscraper collapse? Especially when those three examples occurred on the same day, in the same city, at the same office complex, leased six weeks earlier by the same group (and insured specifically against terrorist attacks)?
In their September issue of THE FINE PRINT (TFP) the editors characterized their inspiration as coming from a core of dedicated “truth seekers” and affirmed their commitment to print “the Naked Truth”. But by October, they had retreated to a disturbing “mainstream” position that betrays their initial enthusiastic promise.

NYU Employee Spits on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist for Harassing Dan Rather
The panel discussion “The First Amendment, Freedom of the Press, and the Future of Journalism” got a little more interesting when an NYU facilities employee lashed out at conspiracy theorists questioning Dan Rather and Jill Abramson as they were leaving the event.
As reported on NYC the Blog and Mazza FHS the night began with the question “whether [Dan] Rather believes World Trade Center was taken down by bombs inside.” The conspiracy theorists followed Rather and Abramson out of the building after the panel discussion to continue questioning.
According to a NYU grad student, Aaron Howell, who was twittering at the event, “A NYU building facility guy got mad at the conspiracy guys for harassing the NY Times person so he spit in the dudes face/slapped his camera. Facility guy violated the poor conspiracy theorists I think NYU might be in trouble for that one.”
9/11 Commission, Londonistan, and Day of 9/11 - Additions to the 9/11 Timeline as of October 19, 2008
Several of this week's new entries focus on the 9/11 Commission, in particular its Executive Director Philip Zelikow, who offered public support for the invasion of Iraq in 2002, but did not want the commission to investigate false claims of links between 9/11 and Iraq. After the commission's investigation started, one staffer was sent to review CIA documents, and another, Warren Bass, was sent to review NSC material. Bass came to favor the account of events in the Bush Administration in the summer of 2001 given by counterterrorism "tsar" Richard Clarke over that given by National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. However, Zelikow distrusted Clarke and tried to protect his friend Rice; it was these ties to Rice which caused both Bass and Commissioner Bob Kerrey to threaten to quit the commission, although neither of them made good on their threat.

This is from David Ray Griffin´s tour in Denmark in 2006.
He made national TV, and it aired on the evening news. Its just now been fit with some subs.
Dave Lindorff, a columnist for Counterpunch, is author of several recent books ("This Can't Be Happening! Resisting the Disintegration of American Democracy" and "Killing Time: An Investigation into the Death Penalty Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal"). His latest book, coauthored with Barbara Olshanshky, is "The Case for Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush from Office (St. Martin's Press, May 2006).

This just came out from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas.
Research shows that when people perceive they have no control over a given situation, they are more likely to see illusions, patterns where none exist and even believe in conspiracy theories. The study suggests that people impose imaginary order when no real order can be perceived.
"People see false patterns in all types of data," says Jennifer Whitson, one of the authors of the report, "...This suggests that lacking control leads to a visceral need for order — even imaginary order."
Here's a little more detail from a site called news-medical.net/?id=41844

New research suggests that the reason why people carry out rituals such as touching wood or wearing a 'lucky' item or some other behavior, is because they are experiencing a loss of control in their lives.

French JM Bigard explains his last month of hell due to his doubts on the official 911 version. English sub-titles please !
Since the last month Jean Marie Bigard is under a horrible media attack because he expressed some doubts on the official version ot the 11th of September 2001 attacks. His reply last Friday night is very powerful. Can anyone put up English sub titles to this so that the non-French speaking Americains can appreciate the difficulties to get the truth out !
Please counter the hate mail sent to Jean-Marie with emails of kindness and thanking him for helping ( perhaps involantarily) the truth mouvement.
PS he is a personnal friend of the French president so what has Nicolas Sarkozy to say on this ?!
Again we are attacking him !
There's a post on liveleak that caught my eye. The guy has posted some footage of the ground wreckage on 9/11 and claims to have a lot more not yet posted.
If anyone's doing any video research, he might be a good contact.
I have obtained a new document via FOIA request. It is an FAA memo comprising a transcript of calls between various FAA facilities and other institutions on the day of 9/11, and was referenced in the 9/11 Commission Report, in endnote 128 to Chapter 1 (on page 459). It is not spectacularly exciting, but touches on awareness of all four hijacks, in particular the last three. You can find it here.

"The New Kleptocracy" with economist Dr. Michael Hudson on Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson's "Plan" passed by Congress on October 3, 2008. We discuss what is being purchased, the congressional vote, what this means for the oligarchs, and what this means for the rest of us.
