As the public finally becomes outraged over the NSA's illegal spying, members of government and the corporate media wage an information war to misdirect that anger to issues of less importance. To counteract this, a bold new citizen-led initiative to nullify the NSA is now gaining momentum around the United States. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV.
Initial response from DoC Inspector General to William Pepper letter concerning NIST WTC 7 report structural feature omissions
Attached is the initial response received on Jan. 14, 2014 from the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General’s office regarding the complaint letter sent by attorney Dr. William Pepper on Dec. 12, 2013. The Inspector General has sent the information provided in the Pepper letter to NIST management for a response.
Individual citizens are encouraged to write or call the DoC Inspector General’s office themselves to let them know you are interested in this issue and to insist that the Inspector General ensure that the NIST be open and transparent here, and to also ensure that there is no conflict of interest. Anyone involved in the original report, which is now under scrutiny with allegations of impropriety, should be precluded from the response activity.
9/11 Free Fall 1/16/14: Tony Szamboti and Gerry B.-- Omissions in NIST's WTC 7 Report
Published on Jan 25, 2014
Tony Szamboti and Gerry B. return to discuss the letter that was recently sent to the Department of Commerce Inspector General on their behalf from attorney Dr. William Pepper regarding the incorrect data in NIST's report on WTC 7, legal steps that will have to be taken if the D.O.C. stonewalls, and how the audience can help spread the word about the game-changing information in that letter which renders NIST's WTC 7 collapse hypothesis impossible.
A significant number of apparent terrorist incidents occurred on September 11, 2001, in which President Bush or locations associated with him, like the White House and Camp David, seemed to be the target. And yet for all these incidents, the apparent threat was subsequently claimed to be unfounded, perhaps having come about due to a misunderstanding. A possibility that has remained unexamined, however, is that the incidents were in fact scenarios in training exercises taking place that day.
It seems reasonable to assume that if the incidents were indeed exercise scenarios, the Secret Service, as the agency responsible for protecting the president and the White House, would have been participating in them. Alarmingly, though, the times at which some of the incidents occurred indicates that if they were scenarios in training exercises, these exercises were not canceled in response to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but instead continued until well after the real-world crisis ended. If the Secret Service was indeed involved in exercises at the time of the 9/11 attacks, then, we surely need to consider what effect these exercises had on the agency's ability to respond to the attacks.
Below are descriptions of eight apparent terrorist incidents that occurred around the time of the 9/11 attacks, in which the president or a location associated with the president appeared to be the target. The first two incidents involved the president himself seeming to be the terrorists' target; the next three involved Air Force One, the president's plane, being the apparent target; and the final incidents involved the places where President Bush lived, such as the White House, being the apparent target.
Ben Swann on Spirituality, 9/11, Censorship,
Published on Jan 20, 2014
On January 18th Derrick caught up with independent journalist Ben Swann on a variety of topics.
Contact us with ideas, comments, or criticisms:
In an interview conducted by OpEdNews.com founder Rob Kall and posted Jan. 22, 2014, entitled "Whistleblower Former NSA Exec Thomas Drake On Obama's Speech, Bengazi, 911 and more- part 1 (&2), Thomas Drake makes the claim that WTC 7 was brought down because of the damage it received from the destruction of the twin towers. In an interview spanning many topics from Benghazi to 9/11 foreknowledge, Mr Drake is asked specifically about the destruction of the WTC complex. He was asked around the 50:00 mark of part 1. However, his evaded responding until just after the 24:00 mark of part 2. He states he remains unconvinced and adamantly proclaims there is "no evidence" that the twin towers were brought down by controlled demolition. But in a stunning admission he adds quote "...and building 7, by the way, came down in part..they had to bring it down because it was severely damaged from the towers falling"
Tom Secker Interview

Writer, researcher and film-maker Tom Secker joins us for a detailed interview on 7/7 (the July 7th 2005 London bombings). Drawing upon his several years of research, Tom shares with us many of the problems with the official story, delves into the backstories behind the alleged suicide bombers, and uncovers layer upon layer of suspicious information suggesting that 7/7 may well have been a false-flag terror event instigated by British Intelligence.
Tom also discusses how, in the run-up to the attacks, predictive programming in popular culture may have shaped public perception of 7/7, and how cognitive infiltration as a double bluff has negatively impacted the quest for 7/7 truth.
One of the discussions I hear the most between fellow activists is "why won't people wake up?" or "what will it take to get everyone to come together?"
About 7 months ago I suffered a severe injury to my back. It was broken essentially. This is personal, but perhaps useful in making my point. I now have something called "Cauda Equina Syndrome." For me (it can be different for other people), it means I have lost bladder control, bowel control, sex control, half of my legs are numb, and the muscles in my feet no longer work. The latter means I am wheelchair bound most of the time.
I have had to suffer through the system in nursing homes which are more like minimum security prisons. Now, however, I have an apartment. Because I can't walk, and don't have a scooter yet, I am essentially homebound 24/7 (unless someone comes to take me out for a while). It is a "prison" in its own right. Hopefully over time this will change.
On January 21, 2014, Melanie Sloan, Executive Director of the Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington (CREW) was a guest on C-SPAN's Washington Journal:
Melanie Sloan is the Executive Director of Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington, and said she would look into a callers claim regarding the collapse of WTC Building 7 while on C-SPAN Tuesday morning.
Melanie Sloan serves as CREW's Executive Director and is a nationally recognized expert on congressional ethics.

Martin Luther King: "Beyond Vietnam"
Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen:
I need not pause to say how very delighted I am to be here tonight, and how very delighted I am to see you expressing your concern about the issues that will be discussed tonight by turning out in such large numbers. I also want to say that I consider it a great honor to share this program with Dr. Bennett, Dr. Commager, and Rabbi Heschel, and some of the distinguished leaders and personalities of our nation. And of course it’s always good to come back to Riverside church. Over the last eight years, I have had the privilege of preaching here almost every year in that period, and it is always a rich and rewarding experience to come to this great church and this great pulpit.

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty in the wrongful death of Martin Luther King. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript.

Transcript of the exchange:
"Congress's refusal to investigate the evidence that Building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition on 9/11 is based on its blind trust in NIST's WTC 7 report, which has now been found to contain incorrect data about the building design that, when corrected, renders NIST's fire collapse conclusion impossible. As appropriations committee member would you be willing to review the errors in NIST's report and help in seeking accountability from NIST for its errors considering that NIST has spent over 20 million dollars of taxpayers money to produce this erroneous report? "
Representative Marcy Kaptur:
"I would be more than happy to receive information from you sir and turn it over to those who have that particular agency under their jurisdiction. I have seen some of the callers who have called into programs and I think you're getting your message through, and as I said earlier, 'Truth will out'...sometime the government doesn't have all the facts, or there is an effort in some matters to not reveal the facts, for whatever reason, but ultimately if the American people are persistent the truth will be revealed. So you certainly can send me material and I will discuss it with those who are in charge of funding those agencies."
Link to the evidence and complaint:
Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), a member of the House Select Intelligence Committee says he "would be happy to review the letter" sent from lawyer, Dr William Pepper, to the office of the Inspector General outlining errors and omissions contained in the NIST report into the collapse of WTC7. You can find the letter here , and so can he.

A “devastating” two hundred and fifty page document: “The Responsibility of UK Officials for War Crimes Involving Systematic Detainee Abuse in Iraq from 2003-2008″, has been “presented to the International Criminal Court, and could result in some of Britain’s leading defence figures facing prosecution for “systematic” war crimes” the (London) Independent on Sunday has revealed.(i)
The dossier charges that: ‘ “those who bear the greatest responsibility” for alleged war crimes “include individuals at the highest levels” of the British Army and political system.’
Among those named, states the Independent, are two former Defence Ministry supremos, Geoff Hoon and Adam Ingram, Defence Secretary and Minister of State for the Armed Forces, respectively, under Tony Blair’s premiership, during the planning and invasion of Iraq and for most of the UK’s occupation. General Sir Peter Wall, head of the British Army is also named.
