We are honoured to speak with Charles and Mary Ann Strange, whose son Michael—Cryptologic Technician and Petty Officer (Collection) First Class Michael Strange—was tragically killed in a suspicious helicopter shoot-down in Afghanistan.
Michael had served as a member of SEAL Team Six when it was reported to have assassinated Osama bin Laden at the beginning of May 2011. But on August 6, 2011 Michael was killed—along with fourteen other members of SEAL Team Six, two other Navy SEALs, thirteen US Army and US Navy support personnel, seven Afghan commandos, one Afgan interpreter and one US military working dog—when the CH-47D Chinook helicopter in which they were travelling was shot down by the Taliban.
But this was no ordinary tragedy in the horrific course of warfare; it was a deeply suspicious event. And many of the families who lost loved ones that day continue to press their catalogue of serious questions that the authorities seem unwilling to answer.
First time the U.S. has put a person on trial on terror charges related to the Islamic State militant group
Trial to Start on IS-Linked Charges in Texas Cartoon Contest
--By Jacques Billeaud, Associated Press - Phoenix — Feb 16, 2016, 4:48 AM ET
Halfway through 2014, three Arizona men were falling under the sway of the Islamic State group, authorities say.
The trio watched videos depicting violence by jihadists, tried to get pipe bombs, planned an attack at a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas last year and researched travel to the Middle East so they could join Islamic State fighters, investigators say.
Two of the men brought semiautomatic rifles and an Islamic State flag to the May 3 contest featuring cartoons deemed offensive to Muslims and died in a shootout with police before hurting anyone attending the event in suburban Dallas.
The third man goes on trial Tuesday in Phoenix in what is believed to be the first time the U.S. government has put a person on trial on terror charges related to the militant group.
Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, a 44-year-old moving company owner, is accused of hosting the two gunmen at his home to discuss plans for the attack, going target shooting in the remote Arizona desert with the pair and providing the guns used at the contest.
Presidents, Prime Ministers, Congressmen, Generals, Spooks, Soldiers and Police ADMIT to False Flag Terror
In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally, in writing, or through photographs or videos:
(1) Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer], have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ….” And see this.
(2) A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland.
(3) Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.
(4) Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939 – while blaming the attack on Finland – as a basis for launching the “Winter War” against Finland. Russian president Boris Yeltsin agreed that Russia had been the aggressor in the Winter War.
FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner: “Since 9/11, this country has taken a big turn in a very strange direction.”
Fox Mulder: “They police us, spy on us, tell us that makes us safer. We’ve never been in more danger.”
O’Malley: “…In a state of perpetual war to create “problem” “reaction” “solution” scenarios to distract, enrage and enslave American citizens at home. (photos of George Bush on ship in Iraq) With tools like the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act which abridge the Constitution in the name of national security. The militarization of the police force in cities across the U.S. The building of prison camps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency with no stated purpose. The corporate takeover of food and agriculture, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, even the military in clandestine agendas to fatten, dullen, sicken and control the populace already consumed by consumerism.”
(video clip of Bush just after 9/11/2001): “…and I encourage you all to go shopping more.”
O’Malley: “A government that taps your phone, collects your data, and monitors your whereabouts with impunity. A government preparing to use that data against you when it strikes. And the final takeover begins.”….
For the undying 9/11 MORONIC STEEL = AIR ARGUMENT

Viral 9/11 Truth-Debunking Blacksmith Gets It All Wrong —
Debunker Debunked: Blacksmith Unwittingly Proves Controlled Demolition-AE911Truth Statement
There are statements in the current (23 January 2016) Wikipedia article regarding "Steven E. Jones" (myself) that I feel are misleading, which prompts me to issue a clarification.
In the opening paragraph, we read:
"In late 2006, some time after Brigham Young University (BYU) officials placed him on paid leave, Jones chose to retire as part of deal with BYU which included BYU abandoning their academic review of Jones' later work."
And later, we find the statement:
"However, Jones resigned before the BYU review could be completed."
These statements make it appear that I did not wish to have an academic review of my research on 9/11. If any reader knows of other comments to this effect, I would appreciate being informed of these sources. In fact, I had requested to have an "impartial review" in writing, dated October 7, 2006, some time prior to my accepting early retirement at BYU.
Another statement in the Wikipedia article reads:
"Jones "welcomed the review" because he hoped it would "encourage people to read his paper for themselves," however the review was abandoned as part of a deal where Jones elected to retire, effective January 1, 2007."

Emory International Law Review, Forthcoming
In a three-step process, this Article seeks to connect the international community to the possible reality of 9/11-as-false-flag. First, it shows that it is highly rational to question the official 9/11 account given the historical record of the first half of the twentieth century, which reveals a pattern of false flag attacks over which the international community openly fretted and tried to exercise jurisdiction. Second, it analyzes the reasons why intellectual elites and the statesmen they influence are behaving irrationally in not inquiring into the possibility of 9/11-as-false-flag, deconstructing a multi-faceted motive into all its unsavory parts. Third, it argues that the means for ceasing this irrational behavior is readily available, as the United Nations need only carry out its core and incontrovertible “jury” function of determining the existence of aggression in order to exercise a long-overdue oversight of the official 9/11 narrative.
A 15 minute compilation of eyewitness statements about the destruction of WTC 1 & 2, including some from the FDNY oral histories released in 2005, news reports and footage from the 2010 NIST FOIA data release.
A lot of the footage will probably be familiar to you, but I used a few less well known clips here too. I made the aspect ratio of all the clips consistent, which will hopefully make them more suitable for others to download and use. Please share the video with others and I wish everyone well for 2016.
United Airlines Held an Exercise So Realistic That Its Personnel Had to Be Reassured That the 9/11 Attacks Were 'Not a Drill'
United Airlines personnel were subjected to a surprise training exercise 12 days before 9/11 in which they were led to believe that one of their planes had crashed. The exercise was so realistic that some of them ended up in tears or became physically sick. Consequently, on September 11, 2001, when two United Airlines planes were hijacked and then crashed, the manager who organized the exercise apparently thought his employees had mistaken reports about the terrorist attacks for part of an exercise and therefore told them, "This is not a drill!"
Furthermore, United Airlines had previously conducted other exercises that were based around scenarios resembling aspects of the 9/11 attacks, which may have caused its employees to be confused on September 11 over whether the crisis that day was real or simulated. The scenarios included hijackings and planes crashing into buildings.
In 2015, there were 385 terrorist incidents around the world according to Wikipedia. Of these, 94% were attributed to Muslim perpetrators or occurred in Muslim countries surrounding the world’s most resource-rich region. The geographic pattern behind these and previous attacks suggests that terrorism is more a function of the need to seize resources than it is about religious or political beliefs. The terrorist events of 2015 continue to fuel speculation that most terrorism is government-sponsored and focuses on achieving political objectives.
Most of the terrorist attacks in 2015 were attributed to groups located in the relatively small region of southwestern Eurasia that has been the focus of competition for resources among the world’s superpowers. The political will to drive seizure of those resources requires Western governments to generate a fear of terrorism in their own societies so that “responses” can happen without interference from the public. Maintaining the fear is what appears to be the primary objective behind the fewer, better publicized, attacks in Western countries.
Since 9/11, terrorist acts in Western countries have exhibited a formulaic set of common features that suggest the government might have been involved in the crimes. Here are ten such features.
- Evidence against the accused is usually composed of hearsay claims or dubious documents that originate with military or law enforcement sources.
- The hearsay evidence typically includes vague accusations that the suspects were in contact with, had “links” to, or made recent pledges of allegiance to, terrorist leaders.
- The documentary evidence includes things like passports conveniently left at the scene or social media postings that imply a commitment to terrorism.
- There is an overly obvious attempt to associate the terrorists with Islam.
- The suspects are usually dead by the time the first reports come out.
- People who knew the accused often say they had absolutely no idea that their friend/neighbor/family member was involved or interested in terrorism in any way.
- The testimony of eyewitnesses is ignored as authorities provide contradictory stories that quickly become the official, media-driven accounts.
- Eyewitnesses often describe the attackers as armed and outfitted like highly trained, and well-supported, special operations soldiers.
- The attacks usually coincide with military or law enforcement exercises that mimic what happens.
- The incidents are used to justify rapid military attacks against countries of strategic interest before any investigation is conducted.
…And now I know that corruption and conspiracy are not to blame so much as the meaner diseases of complacency and conformity. I groan at the prospect of taking on this subject, with which I would much rather have nothing to do.” --Victoria N. Alexander
On the evening of Sunday November 29th, 2015 at a coffeehouse in the Dallas suburb of Addison, literary artist Victoria N. Alexander delivered a casual talk about her new book: Locus Amoenus. Around 25 people attended the presentation, with more along the way as customers entered the coffeehouse.
MUST-SEE DOCUMENTARY: How Big Oil Conquered the World

From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.
