FBI said to have stalked Ivins' family
Published: Wednesday August 6, 2008
Did FBI cross the line in anthrax probe?
Before killing himself last week, Army scientist Bruce Ivins told friends that government agents had stalked him and his family for months, offered his son $2.5 million to rat him out and tried to turn his hospitalized daughter against him with photographs of dead anthrax victims.
The pressure on Ivins was extreme, a high-risk strategy that has failed the FBI before. The government was determined to find the villain in the 2001 anthrax attacks; it was too many years without a solution to the case that shocked and terrified a post-9/11 nation.
The last thing the FBI needed was another embarrassment. Overreaching damaged the FBI’s reputation in the high-profile investigations: the Centennial Olympic Park bombing probe that falsely accused Richard Jewell; the theft of nuclear secrets and botched prosecution of scientist Wen Ho Lee; and, in this same anthrax probe, the smearing of an innocent man — Ivins’ colleague Steven Hatfill.

Willie Nelson In Talks To Hold Concert For 9/11 Truth
Plans being drawn up to emulate Woodstock for a new generation
Wednesday, July 23, 2008
In an exclusive interview today on the nationally syndicated Alex Jones show, iconic musician Willie Nelson volunteered to take part in a concert for 9/11 truth and as part of a campaign to stave off an attack on Iran.
The country music superstar told listeners that some form of musical event to help generate media attention would be a great idea if it could be organized successfully.
In response to a caller’s suggestion to perform at a concert in aid of 9/11 first responders and their families, as well as to raise the profile of the 9/11 truth movement, Nelson responded:
“I would agree to both of those things in a minute.”

Please forward this around...
After over a year of investigations, my sources are ready to speak out publicly on one on of the most important Sept 11th puzzle pieces ever to come my way.
It seems that Mohamed Atta and at least 4 other 911 (alleged) hijackers were in Oklahoma City just before 9.11.2001.
My sources accidentally ran into several witnesses while investigating leads in the OKC Bombing case.
What did they find?
According to eyewitnesses (none of whom knew each other) Atta and the boys were in OKC just 3 days before 911.
ONE OF THEM, TWO WEEKS AFTER 911!
Is Osama bin Laden Dying ... Again?
By MASSIMO CALABRESI / WASHINGTON
Monday, Jun. 30, 2008
Which is closer to dying: Osama bin Laden or the CIA's effort to catch him? Nothing has characterized the fruitlessness of the hunt for the al-Qaeda leader so much as the recurrent — and mostly inaccurate — reports that he is seriously ailing, or even at death's door. In 2002, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said bin Laden had kidney disease, and that he had required a dialysis machine when he lived in Afghanistan. That same year, the FBI's top counterterrorism official, Dale Watson, said, "I personally think he is probably not with us anymore." Since then, of course, bin Laden has appeared on multiple videos looking healthier than ever.
Thought some of you out there would like to know. Borders had an arsenal of 'em, nicely displayed. I haven't cracked mine yet but it looks to be a great read!
McCain Campaign Hopes For Terror Attack To Swing Vote
More dead Americans on U.S. soil would be "big advantage" says top strategist
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, June 23, 2008
Top McCain strategist Charlie Black tells Fortune Magazine that a terrorist attack on U.S. soil would aid the Arizona Senator to overturn Barack Obama's lead and be a "big advantage" in helping him become President.
In an article entitled The evolution of John McCain, Black notes that the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December "helped" the McCain campaign because it gave the Senator an opportunity to grandstand as a tough would-be Commander-in-Chief.
Black then brazenly points out that another 9/11-style attack would give the McCain campaign the boost it needs to claw back Barack Obama's estimated 7 per cent lead over the Senator.
Kucinich to Introduce 60 Impeachment Articles if Stymied in House
June 13, 2008
Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Dennis Kucinich, the Ohio Congressman and former 2008 Democrat presidential candidate, said if the House fails to act on his articles of impeachment, or if the articles are sabotaged in committee, he will come back with 60 articles. Earlier this week, the maverick Congressman introduced 35 articles of impeachment against Bush. The articles follow:
Creating a Secret Propaganda Campaign to Manufacture a False Case for War Against Iraq.
Falsely, Systematically, and with Criminal Intent Conflating the Attacks of September 11, 2001, With Misrepresentation of Iraq as a Security Threat as Part of Fraudulent Justification for a War of Aggression.
Misleading the American People and Members of Congress to Believe Iraq Possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction, to Manufacture a False Case for War.

Kucinich presents Bush impeachment articles
David Edwards and Mike Sheehan
Monday, June 9, 2008
An Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress.
Thirty-five articles were presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives late Monday evening, airing live on C-SPAN.
"The House is not in order," said Kucinich to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), upon which Pelosi pounded her gavel.
"Resolved," Kucinich then began, "that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. ...

Gingrich quips Bush should have allowed some 'reminder' attacks
David Edwards and Muriel Kane
Thursday May 29, 2008
During an appearance at a Long Island bookstore last month, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich was asked by a member of the audience why the United States has not been hit again since 9/11.
"I honestly don't know," Gingrich replied. "I would have expected another attack. I was very, very worried ... when we had the sniper attacks, because the sniper attacks were psychologically so frightening. ... I was amazed that the bad guys didn't figure out how to send ten or twelve sniper teams."
The Pentagon said Tuesday it was sending invitations to news organizations to cover the arraignments of the five alleged September 11 co-conspirators in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said about "four or five dozen" journalists and technical personnel from domestic and international news organizations would be allowed onto the base for the June 5 arraignment.
The reading of the charges is expected to mark the first public appearance of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, since his capture in Pakistan March 1, 2003.
Mohammed and four others face capital charges of murder, terrorism and other war crimes. Charges against a sixth, the alleged "20th hijacker" Mohammed al-Qahtani, were dropped in April by the Pentagon official overseeing the process.
Whitman said invitations were being sent to news organizations on Tuesday.
In the first step towards trying the alleged plotters behind the devastating September 11, 2001 attacks, five men including the accused mastermind will be arraigned June 5 before a US military judge in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Nearly seven years after the attacks and at least five years after their capture, Pakistan-born Kuwaiti Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the purported key 9/11 planner, and four others will formally be charged with murder, terrorism and other war crimes, launching the process of trying them under special military commissions at the US naval prison at Guantanamo.
All face possible death sentences, but the question of whether the trials will ever get underway and how long they could last still looms darkly over the process.
To be arraigned alongside Mohammed are Walid Muhammad Salih Mubarak Bin Attash, a Saudi Arabian; Ramzi Binalshibh of Yemen; Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, Mohammed's nephew also from Kuwait; and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi, of Saudi Arabia.

9/11 truth groups dissect Rumsfeld's 'another attack' quip
Monday, May 19, 2008
A newly-revealed speech delivered by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld before an audience of Pentagon-sponsored military analysts in December 2006 is providing ample grist for 9/11 conspiracy theorists.
An audio recording of the speech was one of a large number of items released by the Pentagon on May 8 as a result of Freedom of Information requests. The New York Times had filed the requests in the course of preparing its expose of the Pentagon's use of supposedly independent retired military officers to present its message on network news shows.

BUT WHO IS ON TOP? MIKE GRAVEL says he's not running for VP so he probably is. Consider the possible fantasy match-ups on this episode of BetterBadNews. Some Neo-Con handicappers are even looking at a MCCAIN CLINTON ticket. The betterbadnews panel also looks at the race for Vice President including potential match ups that could see the green party candidate Cynthia McKinney hooking up with Ralph Nader or Mike Gravel. Stranger things have happened.
in regards to Condi Rice he says "she knew Bin Laden was determined to attack the U.S. and did nothing". Every little bit helps...

Olbermann: How do we reignite anger over this godforsaken war?
May 2, 2008
May 1 was the fifth anniversary of George Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech, in which he claimed, “Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.”
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann began his commemoration of this anniversary by saying there had been nothing comparable to Bush’s “misleading, disingenuous, deliberately deceptive” speech since Neville Chamberlain’s declaration of “peace for our time” after capitulating to Hitler in 1938.
Olbermann noted that even now the administration keeps insisting that the only problem with the speech was that the huge “Mission Accomplished” banner behind Bush on the aircraft carrier was misinterpreted as referring to the Iraq War rather than to the mission of that particular ship. “We have certainly paid a price for not being more specific,” stated White House Press Secretary Dana Perino on Tuesday.

He also tells people to watch Kevin Booth's new film "American Drug War", gets called a "conspiracy theorist" by Maher in typical fashion. By the way, I'm pretty certain Mr. Morales attended Alex Jones' Los Angeles 9/11 Conference in 2006 with Charlie Sheen. There's a picture of him with Willie Rodriguez floating around somewhere out there. Relevant portion is at the 5:20 mark...
Former Governor Jesse Ventura: WTC Collapse A Controlled Demolition
Navy veteran and movie star savages official story, says media covering up truth about attacks

Wednesday, April 2, 2008
Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura vehemently savaged the official 9/11 story on a syndicated national radio show today, saying the WTC collapsed like a controlled demolition and was pulverized to dust as he also highlighted the impossible 10 second free fall speed of the towers.
Top Comedian Believes In 9/11 Conspiracy
Actress Cho says Americans will be angry when they realize true agenda behind attacks
Paul Joseph Watson
Thursday, March 27, 2008
Top comedian and actress Margaret Cho has joined Willie Nelson and Charlie Sheen in questioning the official 9/11 story, stating that the public were going to become very angry when they realized there was a conspiracy behind the terror attacks.
Appearing on the nationally syndicated Alex Jones Show, Cho said her doubts about 9/11 were sparked by President Bush's non-reaction to the unfolding crisis.
"I got concerned right after 9/11 where the plane had hit the World Trade Center and he was in that classroom with all those children and they told him what was going on and he did nothing," said Cho.
"We were attacked for the first time on American soil and he did nothing - that's when I realized there was something very very wrong," she added.

Government-Funded Investigators Accused Of WTC Cover-Up
American Society of Civil Engineers lied about inability of skyscrapers to withstand airliner impacts
Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
The American Society of Civil Engineers - an organization that was funded by FEMA to investigate the collapse of the twin towers on 9/11 - has been accused of engaging in a cover-up to protect the government, with critics charging the organization falsified conclusions that skyscrapers could not withstand getting hit by airplanes.
The group has been forced to convene an investigative panel which could lead to a suspension in government funding.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency paid the group about $257,000 to investigate the World Trade Center collapse and their report was released in 2002.

Top New York Cop Thought Towers Were Bombed On 9/11
Former debunker Dietl admits he shares 9/11 truth activist's questions during confrontation
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, March 17, 2008
Highly decorated former New York City detective Bo Dietl admits that his first instinct on 9/11 was that the twin towers were downed with explosives, as he conceded that he shared many questions about the official story with 9/11 truth activists he had formerly debunked on national television.
What started out as a adversarial confrontation with members of We Are Change turned into a cordial discussion as Dietl contradicted some of his previous public statements on 9/11 and appeared to agree with the group on several issues, presumably prompted by the fact that his daughter was doing a research paper on 9/11 which lent credence to the suspect nature of the official story behind the attacks.
Study Highlights Deep Seated Psychological Impact Of 9/11
Spectacular images of attacks have "changed the way people dream"
Tuesday, Feb 19, 2008
A new study has revealed that the spectacular images broadcast around the world on september 11th 2001 have had a profound psychological impact upon people.
Researchers at Tufts University School of Medicine and the Newton Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts have found that every single person they assessed during a study has more vivid and intense dreams since the attacks occurred.
Dr. Ernest Hartmann, author of the study told Reuters Health that he believes everyone who witnessed the attacks has experienced some sort of trauma, or emotional arousal.
