It’s a Movie. A Rock Musical. And It’s Rooted in 9/11.

.Using the convenience of a laptop, PDA and Wi-Fi, the 9/11 and anti-war activists can show this video loop of the WTC-7 collapse to individual viewers and mini-audiences in places of casual and spontaneous opportunity.
This could be a fast way to break the ice on the topic of 9/11.

Online Video of 9/11
By VIRGINIA HEFFERNAN
How did witnesses react in the moment to the phenomenon that we now call 9/11?
On Tuesday night, February 23, 2010 Sandra Ellis of WeAreChange FL interviewed Phil Restino, Co-Chair of VFP Chapter 136, Central Florida Veterans For Peace at the "Afghanistan - 1,000 KIA - Enough Already, Bring Them Home Now!" antiwar demonstration in Daytona Beach marking the 1,000th U.S. troop KIA in Afghanistan. -- Song by Eddie Vedder, I Am A Patriot.
The current hysteria over the Manhattan Mosque at 9/11 Ground Zero is most likely a probuct of Corporate Media Propaganda to set the tone for more violence in the middle-east.
It's time to pass around the sober thinking of David Ray Griffin who gave this issue a thorough cleaning back in 2008 -- Harold Saive
Was America Attacked by Muslims on 9/11?
By David Ray Griffin - 09/09/2008
Gainesville, Fl - 8/20/2010: UF student activist, Bob Tuskin and War Veteran, Harold Saive presented a case against Pastor Terry Jones' and Dove Outreach's plan to burn Qur'ans on 9/11/2010. The presentation was made to the Gainesville City Commission, City Manager and viewing TV audience of City residents.
The story was picked up by Gainesville Sun reporter, Chad Smith who posted it on the newspaper's Blog.
The Commission was directed to the http://Gators911Truth.org website where two incontovertible scientific publications awaited their inspection.
Chad Smith incorrectly reported that we alleged that 9/11 was a "government conspiracy". It is more accurate to say that the government has continued to cover-up that facts of the 9/11 event during the Bush and now the Obama administrations.
New evidence, available only since 2009, reveals a method of deliberate, pre-planned demolition far too complex for hijackers alone.
Two 9/11 Truth activists in Gainesville, Fl spoke to the City Commission about the un-informed action of Rev.Terry Jones to burn the Qur'an at the Dove Outreach Center on Saturday, 9/11/2010. This day is the sad 9th Anniversary of the unsolved murders in Manhattan, the Pentagon and possible unknown locations.

Full 9/11 story is not told, says visiting WU speaker
By: Kendra Henry
Issue date: 4/29/10 Section: News
One of the principal voices of the 9/11 Truth Movement will make his way to Webster University on Thursday, April 29. Conspiracy theorist, David Ray Griffin, will present "Is the War in Afghanistan Justified by 9/11?" in the Winifred Moore Auditorium at 7 p.m.
"I hope students will come to see that the official story about 9/11, which has led to the killing of millions of Iraqis and Afghanis and otherwise so changed our world for the worse, is false," Griffin said. "Not merely possibly false, but definitely, provably false."
Dan Hellinger, a professor of political science, teaches a senior seminar on conspiracy theory and elected to invite Griffin to WU for the discussion.
"Griffin has become a leading spokesperson for the 9/11 Truth Movement, which holds that the official account of 9/11 cannot be reconciled with the facts," Hellinger said. "In the mainstream media, Griffin and the movement are often called 'conspiracy theorists,' with a clearly disparaging connotation."
Beam From WTC Arrives At Schriever For September 11 Memorial
Posted: 5:03 PM Apr 26, 2010
It was a special welcoming ceremony Monday at Schriever Air Force Base for the arrival of a beam (C-28) from the fallen World Trade Center that will be used for a local 9-11 memorial.
Airmen and civilians could be seen lining the street, holding a salute as the large piece of metal was driven on to the base. The beam, which collapsed during the events of September 11, 2001, had been saved as part of the investigation until now.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey donated the beam to Schriever. It will become part of a
future memorial on base to commemorate the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

Donovan wants city ruled out for 9/11 terrorist trial
By Doug Auer
April 24, 2010, 7:30AM
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Take this terrorist trial and move it.
That's Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan's pointed message to the White House in respect of the possibility of New York City as the venue for the trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Instead, Donovan -- whom many see as a Republican candidate for state attorney general -- advocates a military tribunal.
"The planners of the Pearl Harbor attacks were not brought to Honolulu for civilian trials, but rather Japanese defendants in the post-World War II War Crimes trials were prosecuted before military tribunals, charged with waging aggressive war against the peace. In Europe, Nazi leaders were prosecuted for unprovoked attacks on their neighbors," Donovan pointed out in a press release chock full of strong language, and issued to coincide with President Obama's speech Thursday on financial-sector abuses at Cooper Union.
"Does masterminding the hijacking of civilian planes, causing the death of 2,976 Americans and spawning wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, not constitute an act of aggressive war?"

Jesse Ventura Hammered Over 9/11 Statements
Saturday, April 24, 2010 – by Staff Report
Article also published in THE RIGHT SIDE
Shame On Jesse Ventura! ... The former Minnesota governor has discredited himself, and dishonored and defamed his country by promoting the mistaken view that our government was involved in the Sept. 11 attacks. Jesse Ventura should be ashamed of himself and embarrassed. The former Minnesota governor recently lent his political credentials to the discredited 9/11 "Truther" movement by alleging that the Sept. 11 attacks were either planned or permitted by the United States government. This recent admission was only a small part of Ventura's new book, "American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies and More Lies the Government Tells Us," which echoes a revisionist account of American history that holds the Bush administration responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks by implying that the Bush administration either knew about the attacks, did nothing to stop them or actually participated in them. During a March 10 interview with Barbara Walters on "The View," Ventura implied the Bush/Cheney administration used 9/11 as a pretense to start the Iraq War under false pretenses. Ventura apparently developed this theory after former Kennedy/Johnson adviser Robert McNamara visited him at Harvard and allegedly admitted to him that the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which escalated the Vietnam War, never actually happened. Perhaps what Ventura is missing is that there is probably more incontrovertible evidence and more witnesses who have already established what happened on Sept. 11, 2001 than most major historical events. To dispute the conventional historical account is intellectually dishonest and nonsensical. – FOX News

These scenes include the countless candle light vigils at Ground Zero as well as the broken pieces of steel, which were all that remained of the WTC after the attacks before they were taken down.

WHO’S AFRAID OF 9/11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES?

Who’s Afraid of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories?
By Maidhc O’Cathail for Veterans Today
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” —Queen Gertrude, Hamlet.
Whenever someone insists too strongly about something not being true, we tend to suspect that maybe it is. In their denials of involvement in 9/11, do Israel’s apologists “protest too much”?
While it would take a small book to adequately document the Israeli connection to 9/11—as Antiwar.com editor Justin Raimondo has attempted in The Terror Enigma—let us briefly recall some of the more intriguing facts as reported in the mainstream media, involving dancing Israelis, Odigo warnings, and Zim’s timely move.
Forensics Expert with a 9/11 Truth mission lands in court on charges of harassment
By Nic Corbett/For The Star-Ledger

NORTH CALDWELL-An 82-year-old North Caldwell man who for 1 1/2 years has desperately tried to convince local officials to pass along “evidence” of treason on Sept. 11, 2001 to a New Jersey judge got his day in court last week.
But it was not exactly the forum Don Meserlian wanted. He was there on charges of harassing a borough police captain, filed after he relentlessly pestered the local police department to further his cause.
Apparently the Park Police were gong to tear down the camp.
