WaPo Dana Milbank Classifies Sibel Edmonds as "Kiss & Tell"

Edmonds hasn't written a book yet, has she? Though what she's written already could fill one. Milbank also mentions these people who've made statements on or were witnesses to 9/11 related things, i'm not familiar with all the names in his list: George Tenet, Richard Clarke, Paul O'Neill, Christy Todd-Whitman, Karen Kwiatkowski, Coleen Rowley

911TruthCoalition.org, com, net & info Up for Renewal June 12

just got the renewal notice- I've been sitting on these domain names and haven't organized a coalition; i'd be happy to donate 1 or all of these over to a person or group with a track record of integrity in truth activism that wants to build a transparent and accountable coalition around the idea of 9/11 Truth and Justice- i think it would be great if the many diverse nodes of the 9/11 Truth Movement could lend our collective support to certain issues/ideas/actions that we can all agree on, and also build bridges with other progressive/constitutional-true conservative orgs- for instance, afterdowningstreet.org, democrats.com and progressive democrats of america have promoted 9/11 Press for Truth, and 81% think the Bush Administration is "mostly lying" or "hiding something". 51% support investigating the Bush Administration for 9/11. SaveTheInternet.com was instrumental in killing the anti-net neutrality bill in 2006.

Six films you don't want to miss at the 2008 DOXA Documentary Film Festival:

Kill the Messenger
This French film documents the cold, crass efforts by officials in the U.S. to bring down Sibel Edmonds, an American of Iranian and Turkish origin who was hired by the FBI as a translator after Sept. 11, 2001. Reporting the possible infiltration of Turkish spies turns her life upside down: she is interrogated, fired, and subjected to a relentless campaign of intimidation. Edmonds doesn't back down as she takes her fight to Congress, the 9/11 Commission, the media, and the Supreme Court. Saturday, May 31 at 9 p.m. at Pacific Cinémathèque.

Architects Investigate World Trade Center’s Collapse

May 8, 2008, Nicole Dial, City News Reporter
http://www.cityonahillpress.com/article.php?id=1229

Conspiracy theorist or skeptic Richard Gage believes that something other than terrorists brought down the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. His story involves specially timed explosives, a team of experts and a well-orchestrated cover-up by our own government.

As part of a group called Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Gage traveled to Santa Cruz on May 2 to present “9/11: Blueprint for Truth,” a PowerPoint and film presentation that contests the official story of what brought down the towers.

During the presentation, Gage challenged the theories put forth by several governmental agencies that studied the collapse of the towers, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), saying that none of the previous studies hold up under scrutiny.
“The skyscrapers, welded together and designed not to bend, dropped like a house of cards,” Gage said. “Theories of previous studies don’t account for straight-down collapse or the characteristics of demolitions.”

Film Exposes the Seduction of Secrecy

By Jeff Stein, CQ National Security Editor

"Eight years later came 9/11, famously labeled a failure to “connect the dots.” Eyewash. The CIA, FBI and others had dots. They hoarded them like marbles."

So, was the "failure to prevent" an intentional act to further an agenda, as well as treason and mass murder by US policy makers- or more like manslaughter, only involving "incompetence", criminal negligence, dereliction of duty and horrendous administrative and policy decisions rooted in ignorance, territoriality, ego, partisanship, spite, suspicion- or just the inevitable, "blameless" result an institutionalized culture of secrecy that "supposedly" has been changed? Instead of pursuing these questions, he continues with secrecy issues, the subject of the film being reviewed (in CQ Politics). Article has a nice summary of the bin Laden satellite phone-1998 NSA leak publication-Bush propaganda. In reference to abuse of secrecy:

"Well, that’s the problem, isn’t it? A government of men, as it were, not laws.

NIST WTC9/11 Report: Top 5 "Smoking Gun" Points

This article isn't really new for anyone who's read the Fourteen Points letter and my previous posts; i created this as an overview of some of the points and the issues, both for people who are seeking info, and for activists to use. Also to maintain and expand visibility for the letter; OpEdNews.com is crawled regularly by Google- and i'm still experimenting with keywords, tags and spelling to see what happens with search "alerts" from Google and Yahoo by email; for some reason the PRWeb release from 4/22, which had been in a Google News alert that night, just showed up again today in a News alert.

FBI Backs Off From Secret Order for Data After Lawsuit (Internet Archive)

Was this for your info, 911veritas?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/05/07/AR2008050703808.html

The FBI has withdrawn a secret administrative order seeking the name, address and online activity of a patron of the Internet Archive after the San Francisco-based digital library filed suit to block the action.

It is one of only three known instances in which the FBI has backed off from such a data demand, known as a "national security letter," or NSL, which is not subject to judicial approval and whose recipient is barred from disclosing the order's existence.

NSLs are served on phone companies, Internet service providers and other electronic communications service providers, but because of the gag order provision, the public has little way to know about them. Their use soared after the September 2001 terrorist attacks, when Congress relaxed the standard for their issuance. FBI officials now issue about 50,000 such orders a year.

In the wake of September 11, 2001, Sibel Edmonds is approached by the FBI. As an American of Iranian and Turkish origin, Edmonds’ linguistic skill set makes her a valuable asset to the Language Services Unit, where she spends months translating high-security clearance documents. One day shortly after reporting the possible infiltration of her unit by Turkish spies to her supervisors and their supervisors, Edmonds’ world is turned upside-down.

9/11 Conspiracy Theories May Contain the Truth

Ms. Gloriya Freeland of High View, W Va., in a letter to the editor published by the Cumberland Times News Apr 14, hands the official 9/11 story a verbal spanking so bad, that I would be cringing if I were GW Bush and read newspapers. Go Libraries! Hampshire Co, W Va. rocks!

"The presenters posed many additional facts which space does not provide. If courage to know truth can get your mindset past its self-imposed need for comfort from conspiracy theories, go to www.911truth.org for more. Be a brave patriot!

Hampshire's library has DVDs to check out."

9/11 conspiracy theories may contain the truth

To the Editor:
The last time I took copious notes was in grad school, that is, until March 14's 9/11 Truth's presentation at the Hampshire County Library.

Knock, knock, it’s the FBI

Be careful how you access those links of naked "collapsing" WTC babies

http://www.networkworld.com/columnists/2008/042408-backspin.html

Just imagine if one day in the near future the FBI comes to your enterprise with warrants that allow them to seize and remove any computer-related equipment, utility bills, telephone bills, any addressed correspondence sent through the U.S. mail, video gear, camera equipment, checkbooks, bank statements and credit card statements. The first question you’d ask is, “Who has done what?”

You’re going to be presume your CEO has been involved in some outrageous stock manipulation, or maybe your CFO has been cooking the books. But no, the agent in charge says: “Someone here clicked on a Web link and we’re going to find out who did it.”

Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction
http://www.bentham-open.org/pages/content.php?TOCIEJ/2008/00000002/00000001/35TOCIEJ.SGM

In one of my Communications classes, today we gave 5 minute speeches on a “memorable experience”. I used the occasion to talk about last Friday, April 18, 2008 when the Fourteen Points paper was posted on 911Blogger.com. It went something like this:

“Do you still think that jet fuel brought down the World Trade Center?”

Last Friday, I was thinking that today I would be talking to ya’ll about the first time I saw Loose Change, the online DVD that quote is from, which a lot of you have probably heard of. However, last Friday night something happened, that, imho, is just as memorable and is more immediately significant.

"Information wants to be free" vs. "Don't be evil". When you search online and use search "Alerts", do you want to get the info you want, or do you want the info you receive to be only what Google (and their partners in business and government) want you to know about? If you have concerns about Google's record on search quality/censorship, privacy, human rights, collaboration with people who may pose a serious threat to US sovereignty and security or anything else, read this article and please comment.
