Mockingbird agenda at Daily Kos

Markos Moulitsas, founder of the Net's leading liberal website in terms of traffic and political influence, Daily Kos, has a rather curious and odd background for a leader of the Left—one that might explain his official policy of banning any Diarist who posts information or opinion dissenting from the 9/11 Commission's unraveling myth about the attacks.

Markos served in the U.S. Army from 1989 to 1992, where he was a staunch Reagan Republican, campaigning for George H.W. Bush. It was the "near miss" of being sent to Gulf War I that sparked his political conversion, he says. He hails from a wealthy El Salvadorian family, one of whose members was Minister of Education with the notorious junta during the civil war.

In a speech to the Commonwealth Club in 2006, Kos admitted to interviewing with the CIA for a 6-month period after a time of "underemployment." His statements there betray either a stunning ignorance, or sneaking sympathy with the CIA's long history of democratic subversion and support of rightist dictatorships abroad, including the one that sponsored death squads in his former homeland:

New 9/11 site

New 9/11 site:

Compilation of photo and video evidence, light on text. Mainly serves as an introduction to the case for "inside job" for those who are unfamiliar with the evidence, and may not want to wade through the gigabybtes of textual info out there now. Good to pass on to your friends who need enlightenment. Satirical splash page.

Occam's Razor shaves the $2.5 Million Question

Among the welter of 9-11 anomalies still begging for a plausible explanation, one stands out as a convincing entree for those who dismiss "conspiracy theory," and as a compelling lead for a new investigation: The $2.5 million reward for "put option" stock trading that remains unclaimed to this day (below, I apply Occam's infamous razor to solve this stubborn mystery).

The unusual stock betting that preceded 9-11 is well-known (for those unfamiliar, the details are cited at end of this article).

“The uncollected money raises suspicions that the investors – whose identities and nationalities have not been made public – had advance knowledge of the strikes...They don’t dare show up now. The suspension of trading for four days after the attacks made it impossible to cash-out quickly and claim the prize before investigators started looking."

Wall Street analysts tell us that peaks of put/call options are not that uncommon--there have been episodes in the past. True, but it is the significant disproportion between put and call options that is supposed to arouse the suspicion of Wall Street police--the SEC, FBI and CIA, which tracks such suspicious trading in real-time as a signal of possible insider trading or other criminal activity. Moreover, securities analysts in other countries have stated that these agencies have the capacity to identify the culprits--there is no unbreachable firewall here.
