Terrorized by 'War on Terror'

How a Three-Word Mantra Has Undermined America

By Zbigniew Brzezinski

28/02/08 "Washington Post" -- -- The "war on terror" has created a culture of fear in America. The Bush administration's elevation of these three words into a national mantra since the horrific events of 9/11 has had a pernicious impact on American democracy, on America's psyche and on U.S. standing in the world. Using this phrase has actually undermined our ability to effectively confront the real challenges we face from fanatics who may use terrorism against us.

The damage these three words have done -- a classic self-inflicted wound -- is infinitely greater than any wild dreams entertained by the fanatical perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks when they were plotting against us in distant Afghan caves. The phrase itself is meaningless. It defines neither a geographic context nor our presumed enemies. Terrorism is not an enemy but a technique of warfare -- political intimidation through the killing of unarmed non-combatants.

9/11 first responders head to Washington rally

February 26, 2008

Mike McCormack, of Ridge, was part of a search team that found a battered American flag at the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The flag had flown over the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and on a U.S. Navy ship during the war in Afghanistan.

But McCormack, 49, says he is getting the cold shoulder from the Bush administration, which has proposed what the group says is a severe cut in health care for 9/11 first responders.

He is one of more than 200 first responders who plan to hold a rally today on the west lawn of the Capitol building to call for a restoration of the funding. They then plan to meet with lawmakers.

Unraveling Of The Official 911 Story Continues By Mark H. Gaffney 2-22-8

Unraveling Of The Official
911 Story Continues
By Mark H. Gaffney
2-22-8

Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
couldn't put Humpty together again.

Today in America, we are witness to a great unraveling, the likes of which we have never seen before. There are no historical precedents. For many months now the official narrative about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America has been coming apart, and I mean: at the seams. The official story about that terrible day is disintegrating. The trend shows no sign of abating and in recent weeks it even appears to have accelerated. At the present rate, soon there will be nothing left of the official version of events but a discordant echo and a series of extremely rude after shocks.

Is our nation prepared to face those rude shocks?

Who Was Doing the electrical Work?

An acquaintance of mine is doing research into who was conducting the electrical work during Scott Forbes claim of the weekend "power down" where "engineers" were running cabling through out the floors in the weekend prior to 9-11. His findings could be of interest or useful to other researchers.

Joshua Smith:
I decided this morning to dig deep into who was conducting the electrical
work during Scott Forbes claim of the weekend "power down" where
"engineers" were running cabling through out the floors in the
weekend prior to 9-11. And in research into some theories that those
"engineers" may have been wiring explosives (and/or other
things.)

1. Cabling electrical upgrades at WTC: 1993 article claims upgrades will
be a ten year project.

"...the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, the WTC's
owner, has decided to revamp the system with an electrical upgrade that
will take an estimated 10 years and $81 million to complete. The project
will involve extensive use of copper cabling.

The first step in the upgrade program will be to replace aluminum cables

Emergency Rally for 9/11 Health February 26, 2008 Organized by the FealGood Foundation & 9/11 Health Now

OVER 200 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS, FAMILY MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS RALLY AT CAPITOL HILL IN CALL FOR NATIONWIDE ATTENTION TO ISSUE

www.fealgoodfoundation.com

http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/31229

WASHINGTON DC - 02.21.08 - Over 200 9/11 First Responders, family members and supporters will be rallying on Capitol Hill this Tuesday, February 26th.
From 10:00am to 12:00pm, First Responders will rally on the West Lawn of Capitol Hill.

Scheduled speakers include Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (NY), Congressman Jerry Nadler (NY), Congressman Tim Bishop (NY) Congressman Dennis Kucinich (OH) and other Congressional leaders. Advocates of several 9/11 health organizations as well as family members and first responders from September 11, 2001 will also be discussing the health issues they currently face.
The rally is aimed to address the following issues:

* The federal government just cut 9/11 Health Care funding by 77%. A paltry $25 million was designated for fiscal year 2009, down from $108 million in 2008. This means every program in existence (including Mt. Sinai) will be operating on a severely reduced budget.

STILL UNANSWERED 9/11 MIRACLES
by Allen L Roland

Every six months I return to the 9/11 scene, not to fan the flames but, instead, to review apparent truths ~ particularly in light of the growing awareness of the ongoing deceptions and lies of the Cheney/Bush Administration.

Americans are not quite ready to look into the Pandora's Box of 9/11 because the implications are truly breathtaking and staggering but as each shocking abuse of power of the Cheney/Bush regime is revealed to America ~ the public becomes more open to the possibility of a monstrous deception beneath the unanswered 9/11 miracles.

If one accepts the " Official Version " of the events that occurred on 9/11 or in the days leading up to it, one must conclude that a series of miracles occurred ~ suggesting factitiously the hand of higher powers.

Subject: Digg - 9/11: Press for Truth --> Digg the Truth! --> Spread the word

Philip Shenon in his new book, The Commission
has exposed the "cover-up" Commission
bringing doubts to many more in the establishment about the story told
in the 9/11 Report. Unfortunately he doesn't mention Press for Truth,
but you can help reach more folks by Digging it and forwarding this
email. Let's see if we can digg it up to 500 by the end of the weekend.

2008 is the year to make a new investigation a priority in this country
and to impress upon our elected officials that we expect them to re-open
the investigation in 2009. Join the 9/11 families and especially the
widows who are leading the way to a new investigation by spreading the
word and digging this film. Buy the DVD if you can at
http://www.911press fortruth. com. And send a copy to Rep. Rush Holt, the
Chairman of a new oversight intelligence committee set up by leader
Pelosi. And send a copy to Rep. Dennis Kucinich and Rep. Waxman of the
House Oversight Committee.

Thank you.

CIA's ambitious post-9/11 spy plan crumbles By Greg Miller, Los Angeles Times February 17, 2008

CIA's ambitious post-9/11 spy plan crumbles
'Fox News Sunday'

" Summing up what many considered the fatal flaw of the program, one former high-ranking CIA official said, "They were built on the theory of the 'Field of Dreams': Build them and the targets will come."

Officials said the experience reflected an ongoing struggle at the CIA to adapt to a new environment in espionage. The agency has sought to regroup by designing covers that would provide pretexts for spies to get close to radical Muslim groups, nuclear equipment manufacturers and other high-priority targets.

But current and former officials say progress has been painfully slow, and that the agency's efforts to alter its use of personal and corporate disguises have yet to produce a significant penetration of a terrorist or weapons proliferation network."

Concentration Camps in America: The Consequences of 40 Years of Fear

If you type the phrase "concentration camps" into your Internet search engine, you will find page after page of references to martial law and the construction of concentration camps in the United States on behalf of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
A close examination reveals that many of these references lack sufficient facts to support their conclusions; however, taken as a whole, there is an abundance of factual information showing an alarming trend in the deployment of federal and military forces to restrain and detain American citizens.

Al Qaeda does not exist and never has PRAVDA 16 February 2008

http://english.pravda.ru/mailbox/22/101/397/13821_AlQaeda.html

The basic truth is that Al Qaeda does not exist and never has. Al Qaeda is a manufactured enemy who was created by the Bush Administration in order to have an excuse to wage a war for the control of the world’s oil resources.
Did an American even hear the words “Al Qaeda” before 9-11? Or were we told that its alleged leader Osama Bin Laden has family who themselves have personal business relationships with George W. Bush’s family and that both families had financially profited considerably from the “War on Terror”?

Saudi Arabia's rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday.

Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced "another 7/7" and the loss of "British lives on British streets" if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.

History Commons Project, Update on February 14, 2008

Contributors to the History Commons have launched a new project that will focus on A. Q. Khan’s nuclear network. The investigation will look at the network’s links to the Valerie Plame case, Sibel Edmonds' allegations, al-Qaeda, and much more. Contributors intend to document more than just how the network operated and what it bought and sold. Rather their intent is to develop a clear understanding of how this network was able to carry out its clandestine activities in the US. This project will be producing a lot of new material in the coming weeks.

Otherwise, the two most active timelines this week were the 9/11 and Loss of Civil Liberties projects.

The 9/11 project has continued to add more details about nuclear proliferation and Pakistan, in particular the case of a Pakistani charity front that said it would help al-Qaeda get nuclear weapons, but was close to Pakistan’s ISI.
