6 yrs. for 9/11 embezzle scheme
Friday, October 24th 2008, 11:18 PM
A Former employee of the city medical examiner's office was sentenced to nearly six years in federal prison for her role in a scheme to embezzle millions of dollars intended to help identify victims of the 9/11 attacks.
Rosa Abreu, 41, worked with her boyfriend, Natarajan Venkataram, in a ghoulish plot to steal $13 million from a project designed to speed the identification of bodies.
Abreu, who was the director of records at the medical examiner's office, pleaded guilty last fall to embezzlement, money laundering and conspiracy charges.
She and Venkataram steered government funds to overseas companies and bank accounts they controlled. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in July after pleading guilty to similar charges.

side-by-side comparison of the collapse of WTC7 (Youtube)
The collapse of New York's World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001 is arguably one of the most well documented events in human history. Less well documented is the controversy over why the buildings fell as they did.
At the time of writing, 357 architectural and engineering professionals have signed a petition which directly challenges the National Institute of Standards & Training's official finding that the destruction of these massive buildings was caused solely by structural damage from the impact of jet airliners and the resulting fires.
The petition, demanding of Congress a truly independent investigation, states, in part:
"...the 9/11 investigation must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7."

In Awe of 9/11: The Time Has Come to Expose the Man Behind the Curtain
By Timothy Welton Cavanaugh
As perverted and grotesque as they were we must stand in awe to the conception and execution of the 9/11 attacks and the post-9/11 chess moves that have turned this country, even the entire world, completely upside-down. Beyond the true awesome power the effect of a terrorist event of that magnitude would have on a people – effectively making them so malleable as to accept any action(s) from their government that even suggested a return to a state of security – the choice of targets alone and which ones were and weren’t to be hit and why was genius.

JOE BIDEN'S FEARS
October 21, 2008

Joe Biden wonders whether Barack Obama is qualified to be commander-in-chief.
"Mark my words," Biden warned Sunday at a Democratic fund-raiser. "It will not be six months [after the inauguration] before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy."
Then he added, "Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
Now, here's where it gets scary.
Obama's "gonna need your help to use your influence within the community to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
He's going to need help?
What's particularly disturbing is Biden's Kennedy analogy.
For those who don't recall, it was a scant five months after JFK became president that Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev took his measure.

9/11: Total Proof Bombs Were Planted-Do You Agree?
CAREFUL CONSIDERATION indicates bombs were planted, then detonated and brought down all 3 WTC buildings on 9/11 in mere seconds.
Some of the steel structural columns of the World Trade Center towers, weighing 40 tons, were blasted sideways with such velocity that they stuck in the facades of other buildings hundreds of feet away. It's impossible for a collapse caused only by fire and gravity to have done that. In fact it was done by explosives, which had to have been planted in the towers beforehand.

Shocked by 9-11, Americans wondered who could perpetrate such a horrible crime against people. Over two thousand Americans jumped to their death, were burned, crushed, or murdered in a spectacular collapse of the Twin Towers. In a joint session of Congress a few days later, President George W. Bush gave us the first clue who "they" were. "They" hated us for our freedoms.
Tribunal misgivings drive Gitmo prosecutor to quit By Josh Meyer |Tribune Newspapers October 12, 2008

Tribunal misgivings drive Gitmo prosecutor to quit
By Josh Meyer |Tribune Newspapers
2:18 AM CDT, October 12, 2008
WASHINGTON — Darrel Vandeveld was in despair. The hard-nosed lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve had lost faith in the Guantanamo Bay war crimes tribunals in which he was one of the prosecutors.
His work was top secret, making it impossible to talk to family or friends. So the devout Catholic — working away from home—contacted a priest via the Internet.
"I am beginning to have grave misgivings about what I am doing, and what we are doing as a country," Vandeveld wrote in an August e-mail. "I no longer want to participate in the system, but I lack the courage to quit. I am married, with children, and not only will they suffer, I'll lose a lot of friends."
He even reached out for advice from his opposing counsel, a military defense lawyer.
NORTH TEXANS FOR 9/11 TRUTH have piloted a broadsheet flyer project. For about the cost of a Kinko’s black-n-white copy on 8 ½ X 11, our group has printed a graphic COLOR flyer on a newspaper sheet sized, clean, semigloss white paper. This pilot project print run is extraordinary in that the cost of a single flyer is under 7 cents. That includes taxes, freight, set-up fees and boxes for every 1,000 flyers. We have 30,000 copies.
Under 7 cents delivered!! COLOR, high quality photos!!! Newspaper size!! Clean, semigloss paper!
The purpose of the broadsheet-flyer is to attract credible attention towards 9/11 Truth and to prompt people to further investigate 9/11. The purpose of the flyer is NOT to try to convince the public that 9/11 was an inside job, because a flyer alone can not effectively relay all the important information.
There are many of 9/11 Truth. While all can not be in the spotlight, here is a brief story of a Truther who made things go right.
A Review of Jason Bermas’s Fabled Enemies
by Jeremy R. Hammond / October 11th, 2008
Fabled Enemies a new documentary video that challenges the official version of 9/11, is the latest in the ever-expanding list of films and videos dealing with the topic, which have varied greatly in worth. Though not without flaws, the video is a refreshing change of course from a great many of the less valuable ones that focused mainly on the collapses of the World Trade Center buildings. While touching briefly on the collapse of building 7, the documentary mostly approaches the issue from a different angle by reviewing some of the great amount of other evidence that the official story of the events of that day are a mere legend and that the U.S. government has gone to great lengths to cover up the truth.
Doctor asks federal judge to issue restraining order stopping bailout bill

By Steve Gonzalez
EAST ST. LOUIS-A Belleville doctor is asking a federal judge to bar President George W. Bush from enforcing the congressionally-approved financial industry bailout bill.
Dr. Randy J. Jung filed the request for a restraining order Friday, arguing Congress and Bush exceeded their constitutional authority when passing H.R. 1424, otherwise known as the bailout bill.

From the LC Crew:
Your support of "Loose Change" and 9/11 Truth has helped stir debate in the public arena and awakened literally millions of people to the possibility of Government complicity in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
It has inspired many of us, concerned people, to ask real questions and demand real answers from those who claim authority over us.
The tragedy of 9/11 has provoked anger, sadness, outrage, empowerment, awareness and activism. But what if the 9/11 attacks were just the tip of the iceberg of something deeper and more sinister?
We met this guy, Paul Verge, when he came out from Vancouver Canada to NYC for the September 11th, 2006 events organized by Louder than Words. He said he was working on a film called "Hijacking Humanity". Even though we all thought he was a little weird, he seemed nice enough, so we allowed him to interview us, unsure of what kind of movie he was making…
Since many of us seek a greater understanding about who really pulled the strings behind the 9/11 attacks, especially if the official story is false… We recommend checking out Paul's film… "Hijacking Humanity".

Ex-CIA Operative Discusses 'The Devil We Know'
[37 min 59 sec]
Fresh Air from WHYY, October 2, 2008 · In his new book, The Devil We Know, former CIA operative Robert Baer argues that Iran is an up-and-coming — and often misunderstood — superpower, with strong influences throughout the Middle East.
"The sooner we understand the Iranian paradox — who they are, what they want, how they want to both humble us and work with us — the sooner we'll understand how to come to terms with the new Iranian superpower," writes Baer.
Baer's previous book, See No Evil, was the basis for the George Clooney film Syriana.

The past week's Congressional anthrax hearings revealed that public pressure is keeping the doors open in the anthrax case. FBI Director Robert Mueller promised that the FBI will provide their evidence to a panel of experts for scientific evaluation. The battle will now turn to the independence of this panel, and whether "all evidence" or merely "scientific evidence" will be under review.
During the hearing, Mueller found himself under fire by Senator Patrick Leahy and Congressman John Conyers for not having answers to their questions. Republican Arlen Specter was furious at Mueller for his unwillingness to assure them that Congress would have a role in determining the panel's composition.
Let me cut to the chase. The biggest robbery in the history of this country is taking place as you read this. Though no guns are being used, 300 million hostages are being taken. Make no mistake about it: After stealing a half trillion dollars to line the pockets of their war-profiteering backers for the past five years, after lining the pockets of their fellow oilmen to the tune of over a hundred billion dollars in just the last two years, Bush and his cronies -- who must soon vacate the White House -- are looting the U.S. Treasury of every dollar they can grab. They are swiping as much of the silverware as they can on their way out the door.
No matter what they say, no matter how many scare words they use, they are up to their old tricks of creating fear and confusion in order to make and keep themselves and the upper one percent filthy rich. Just read the first four paragraphs of the lead story in last Monday's New York Times and you can see what the real deal is:
"Even as policy makers worked on details of a $700 billion bailout of the financial industry, Wall Street began looking for ways to profit from it.
What is 'Obsession'?
Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West is a 2005 anti-Muslim propaganda film put together by controversial anti-Muslim figures to further the perceived divide between Western and Muslim audiences. 28 million copies of the DVD were recently distributed by a mysteriously-funded entity by the name of the Clarion Fund with the help of 70 US newspapers in a curious and unprecedented campaign. This large distribution, particularly given it was targeted to swing states in the current elections cycle, piqued the interest of many, especially civil rights watchdogs.
Why is 'Obsession' a hate film, can we deny that radical violent Muslims exist?
Of course, there is no denying that there are those who have misused Islam to promote an anti-Western militant ideology that is responsible for the tragic 9/11 attacks and other deplorable terrorist acts around the globe. Few would disagree that Al Qaeda and its imitators are ruthless enemies that the United States must deal with forcefully.
Finally: One Brave Newspaper Refuses to Distribute 'Islam Terror' DVD By Greg Mitchell, Huffington Post
By Greg Mitchell, Huffington Post
I wrote here Saturday about the "Islam terror" scaremongering DVD Obsession that the Clarion Fund has paid dozens of newspapers across the country -- almost solely in "swing" election states -- to distribute, many of them quite large in cities such as Miami, Philadelphia, Denver and Pittsburgh. (HuffPost was one of the first to be on this.) My posting was updated yesterday when many more papers sent it around. An estimated 28 million copies have been distributed so far, also through the mails and other magazines. An article at the group's site, www.radicalislam.org, all but endorsed John McCain this past week, then was pulled down.
But at least one newspapers turned away the money and refused to distribute it, calling it "divisive."
It's the Greensboro News & Record in North Carolina, which was one of the first mainstream dailies to really plunge into blogs and other Web-related community things. The longtime editor, John Robinson, explained his reasoning in a column yesterday.
(Here's more on the film that was delivered in Wisconsin and other states in the US. It was also bundled with the New York Times;
NEW PROPAGANDA FILM for your consideration
Obsession - Radical Islam's War Against the West is a new film that will challenge the way you look at the world.
Almost 70 years ago, Europe found itself at war with one of the most sinister figures in modern history: Adolf Hitler. When the last bullet of World War II was fired, over 50 million people were dead, and countless countries were both physically and economically devastated. Hitler’s bloody struggle sought to forge the world anew, in the crucible of Nazi values. How could such a disaster occur? How could the West have overlooked the evil staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it?

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his Republican rival John McCain walked side by side down the ramp into the pit where the World Trade Center once stood Tuesday in what was promoted as a demonstration of national unity on the seventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
The symbolic gesture followed a week of bitter attacks by the Republican campaign against Obama, including a lying ad charging that he had promoted “comprehensive sex education” for kindergarten students, and a ludicrous controversy—amplified and endlessly repeated by the media—over whether the Democratic candidate’s use of the words “lipstick on a pig” constituted a sexist smear.
