Hazardous asbestos fibers at the WTC exposed more than 110,000 people to the dangerous material; this includes 80,000 tower workers, 30,000 area residents and nearly 4,000 first responders. Asbestos exposure is directly linked to mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related diseases.
March 16, 2013 "Information Clearing House" -"Zero Hedge" - As a young man, I voraciously read George Orwell’s “1984”, Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” and Alvin Toffler's trilogy which included "Future Shock"', "The Third Wave" and "Power Shift". During the era of the Vietnam War, I wondered seriously about the future and how it was destined to unfold. Now being considerably older, I have the vantage point to reflect back on my early ruminations and expectations. Unfortunately, I am too old to alter the lessons that are now so painfully obvious. Instead, I pass the gauntlet to those who can understand and take action on what I have unavoidably come to expect for America.
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Sunday accused the Taliban and the U.S. of working in concert to convince Afghans that violence will worsen if most foreign troops leave - an allegation the top American commander in Afghanistan rejected as "categorically false."
Karzai said two suicide bombings that killed 19 people on Saturday - one outside the Afghan Defense Ministry and the other near a police checkpoint in eastern Khost province - show the insurgent group is conducting attacks to help show that international forces will still be needed to keep the peace after their current combat mission ends in 2014.

Truth. Justice. Accountability. The idea of an international rule of law appeals to our innate sense of justice, but the most horrific plans are often cloaked in the most beautiful lies. Just as the ideals of international law are used to cloak the imperial ambitions of the globalists, so too is the idea of seeking justice in these controlled courtrooms a phoney pipe dream. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we explore the only real solution to this problem: removing the bodyguard of lies from the power elite and to withdrawing ourselves from the systems that seek to legitimize their rule.

Aiyana Stanley-Jones was seven-years-old when a Detroit police SWAT team surrounded her house and threw a “flashbang” grenade through her window which landed on her blanket. Then they stormed the home she was staying in with her grandmother and shot Aiyana in the head. The military pyrotechnics made for good footage for the television crew that recorded the incident for a police reality show.
Vancouver-bound author James Douglass on JFK and the Unspeakable

Theologian and peace activist James Douglass, author of JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why it Matters
Last Christmas I was standing in line at Chapters with a copy of the book JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why it Matters when the man behind me commented, “That’s the best book on the subject.”
RFK Jr says no lone gunman
He might have been right. If it’s not the best, it’s one of them, partly because of the clarity author James Douglass brings to an event that can be overwhelmingly complex in its fine details. Indeed, JFK and the Unspeakable achieved a rare consensus inside the assassination research community for its wise and lucid organization of the known data. If you’re new to the subject, there isn’t a better primer.
2002 documentary about the April 2002 Venezuelan coup attempt which briefly deposed Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. A television crew from Ireland's national broadcaster, RTÉ happened to be recording a documentary about Chávez during the events of April 11, 2002. Shifting focus, they followed the events as they occurred. During their filming, the crew recorded images of the events that they say contradict explanations given by Chávez's opposition, the private media, the US State Department, and then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. The documentary says that the coup was the result of a conspiracy between various old guard and anti-Chávez factions within Venezuela and the United States.
Every day we are subjected to programming that tries to convince us that we are alone, powerless, and rightly shunned by society for asking questions about the propaganda we are subjected to. But we are not alone, we are not powerless, and there are more of us than you might think. Today we examine some examples of the public standing up to the globalist stooges in one of the few quasi-mainstream outlets they have to do just that: C-Span.
Who is responsible when the media fabricates the news?
What did our founding generation envision as "Freedom of the Press"?
Where does our mainstream media get their news? Is it accurate?
How many wars have been directly influenced and driven by the media?
How unbiased is our FREE PRESS supposed to be?
Are the media and their sources trustworthy?
From the blatant falsifying of news to the lack of real integrity in the media this ninety-minute film touches on several pieces of information that have shaped our opinions and our thoughts, and most have been based on deception, persuasion and money... instead of the basic facts.
Do we really have a free press in this country?
The answer may not shock you, but the absolute truth will…
The nation's top law enforcer worries that Americans could become "complacent" about the threat of terrorism, even as the FBI has thwarted not only international plots, but homegrown terrorists that Holder called "a very serious threat."
"I worry a little that the American people, from the general population, has become a little complacent that we don't understand or realize that the threats are still real, that the danger is out there, is still tangible, that we still have to be as vigilant as we need to be," Holder said.
Abby Martin takes a look at MSNBC's recent documentary about the lies leading up the Iraq war, and the closer look at the corporate media's complicity in selling war to the American people by highlighting multiple staged events.

The Power of Nightmares. The Century of the Self. Pandora's Box. All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace. If you're familiar with the alternative media, you've doubtless come across references to the documentary work of Adam Curtis. But besides the well-known examples of brilliance within Curtis' work is a deeply doctrinaire strain that seeks to normalize mainstream history and convince us that the driving ideologies of the political elite are exactly what they say they are. Join us today on The Corbett Report as we deconstruct Curtis' documentaries and look for the deeper meaning behind the globalist ideology.
“What If?” histories are a good read. They are entertaining, and they provoke thought and encourage the imagination. How different the world would be if different judgments, decisions, and circumstances had prevailed at history’s turning points. Certainly English history would have been different if King Harold’s soldiers had obeyed his order not to pursue the defeated fleeing Normans down the hill. This broke the impenetrable Saxon shield wall and exposed King Harold to Norman calvary. http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Battle_of_Hastings
Would there ever have been a Soviet Union if the Czar had stayed out of World War I?
Would there have been a World War II if British, French, and American politicians had listened to John Maynard Keynes’ warning that the Treaty of Versailles would result in a second world war? Germany had been promised a different outcome–no reparations and no territorial loss–in exchange for an armistice. As Keynes realized, the betrayal of the peace led to another great war.
