The Bin Laden saga continues.
Almost one year ago exactly, Obama came onto live TV late at night to announce that Usama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan raid by US Marines.
Former Senator Leaves 9/11 Group, Takes Donations With Him
Brian Romanoff Nor Cal Truth Feb 21, 2012
This may be news to many of you. It's not pretty. It may upset you and let you down.
Former Senator Mike Gravel (who read the 'Pentagon Papers' leaks into the public record) had been actively involved in the 9/11 truth & justice movement for the last year.
That is over now.

Norman Solomon has a history of avoiding 9/11, even silencing it.
Now he is running for Congress to represent the 2nd District of California, right where I live.
Michael Rupperts Timeline that Solomon disagreed with:
Norman's letter to KPFA in 2002 trying to shut down Michael Ruppert:
While the White House went to great lengths to keep the details of last year’s raid on the Osama bin Laden compound from penetrating the public peripheral, investigators are questioning how much intel the Pentagon passed to hotshots in Hollywood.
Lawmakers say that the May 2011 event that nearly ended the War on Terror was among the most secretive in the history of the CIA, and the Obama administration has since shunned the public from any details pertaining to the plan even after the former al-Qaeda leader’s execution and burial at sea. As skeptics scorned President Obama for his lack of transparency in the process and demanded proof, the White House largely left details of the event and what occurred before and after locked up in Washington.
According to Rep. Peter King (R-NY), insiders in Tinsletown were given the key.

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11 Image Comics published a one-shot comicbook entitled The Big Lie — written and drawn by comic’s veteran, Rick Veitch, Gary Erskine (inks), with Thomas Yeates (cover), Dominic Reagan (color), and Annie Parkhouse (letters). According to the publisher, The Big Lie will be a series of one-shot/stand-alone comics that will serve as conversation pieces for many comic fans and non-comic fans alike. The intention of the comic is to explore very real and often politically-charged questions in traditional comic book format. The first issue of The Big Lie was published in honor of the attacks of September 11th, 2001.

“How can Budget Increases…Addition of ‘Intelligence Czar’ Fix the Problem?” -Sibel Edmonds
Sibel Edmonds, former FBI translator, wrote this open letter to 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean in 2004. I have edited it down just slightly in hopes that more people read it, though the full text links are recommended and provided at bottom. I have added bold for emphasis of one, consistent point.
I encourage everyone to become more familiar with Sibel Edmond’s story – this is a really good starting point. – Brian @ Nor Cal Truth
Dear Chairman Kean:
Today is the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks of Dec 7, 1941.
During a visit to a local antique store, I came across a relic of an issue of Time magazine for $6.00.
Dated September 10th, 1945, I quickly looked inside to see what I would find. What a score! I felt like I was reading the 9/11 Commission Report, or at least a summary of it.
I could not help but think of all the similarities between Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
Everyone knows that in 2000 the Project for a New American Century, a neo-conservative think-tank, called for a “new Pearl Harbor” in order to facilitate and hasten their plan for military hegemony. And we know that came on September 11th, 2001.
And everyone knows that the 9/11 cover-up was sealed with the 9/11 Commission Report.
So it was reminiscent to read about a “ludicrous story of doodling,” “omissions,” information gaps and the “failure” of one to give information to another in the lead-up to the Pearl Harbor attacks – Oh, and missed warnings.
Perhaps it is nothing.
The 9/11 Commission Final Report did not mention it.
The FBI investigated it and interviewed many people, several different times. FBI officials never contested the media reports, nor did it ever release any findings of its investigation publicly.
Perhaps it was not important enough to warrant a note or comment ….. perhaps it is.
During the 10 year anniversary of the attacks, ABC brought us the first-in-a-long-time mainstream news report of the mystery:
On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception -- and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

Recently Deceased Crown Prince Sultan and his son Bandar “Bush” Epitomize Highly Questionable Saudi 9/11 Connections
News of the Saudi Crown Prince passing in the U.S. and his new successor to the post warrant a refresher on the attempts to name them in 9/11 lawsuits years ago.
ONE BIG FAMILY
Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the Crown Prince to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, died just a weeks ago in a New York hospital due to ill health. The world’s largest oil-exporting nation has quickly found an heir to the Crown Prince, a position directly under the most powerful of the King. The new Crown Prince has been named as Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, brother of the deceased Crown Prince Sultan. Both were half-brothers to the current King of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah, and both are a part of the powerful Sudairi Seven.
Russ Baker visited the California coastal community of Point Reyes on 9/29/11.
Russ is the author of Family of Secrets – The Bush Dynasty, The Powerful Forces That Put it in The White House, and What Their Influence Means for America.
After discussing some very interesting details and facts presented in his book, Russ was able to answer some questions from the audience.
Questions ranged from journalism in the 21st century and hackers, to Saudi connections to 9/11 and how Commissions, including the 9/11 Commission ”never, ever get to the bottom of anything“. Watch the video above for more.

Looking around on the internet it is clear that the The Big Lie is still creating interest and spawning conversation in diverse circles inside and outside of the regular 9/11 groups. The video above was posted by LeakSourceArchive. Here is a look at a selection of recent articles and interviews regarding The Big Lie following its release.
The Bohemian, September 7th:
Al Jazeera provided an interactive breakdown on how much 9/11 has cost to the American economy in 10 years.
I have outlined it below in short; further down is the longer version with explanation details for each main and sub-category. It is stated that many of these categories are conservative calculations and that many categories are certain to rise in cost.
Note: $5 trillion dollars is equal to 5 million millions.
Could it be that more remains in 2011 have been found? The NY Medical Examiner does not make it 100% clear if these were body fragments from previous recovery efforts in 2010 or 2006; or if perhaps more fragments have been found in 2011. Here is the latest from CBS New York:
Forensic technicians have identified another set of human remains found in the rubble of the World Trade Center, nearly a decade after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The office of New York City’s medical examiner announced Tuesday that it had successfully matched a set of remains to 40-year-old Ernest James, who had been assumed dead in the Twin Towers’ collapse.
James was identified within the last few days through DNA testing, a spokeswoman said. He worked for the professional services firm Marsh & McLennan Companies, which lost more than 350 employees and consultants that day.
Writer Alex Zalben recently interviewed Rick Veitch about the up and coming comic book The Big Lie. The interview was posted on Mtv Geek and opens like so:
With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 fast approaching, there will be a lot of looks back, some fond, some heartbreaking… And then there will be “The Big Lie,” a comic book by Rick Veitch and Gary Erskine that finds a scientist traveling back in time to the day itself in order to stop the disaster. And while there, she finds out that maybe the truth isn’t as clear cut as she thought.
The article quickly moves to the interview with artist and writer of The Big Lie, Rick Veitch:
Col. Tim Duffy visited Sonoma County, Ca on June 25th. He came to the Pacific Coast Air Museum, where the F-15 he flew on 9/11 is on display for the local 9/11 memorial.
Part 1 of 3
Col. Tim Duffy describes the day of 9/11 from his perspective. He also begins to take questions from the audience. Noteably, he describes the towers destruction as an "impolosion", rather than a "collapse" - and mentions his prior intercept mission in the past.
Part 2 of 3
Col. Tim Duffy answers questions from the audience. Questions include topics of: A prior intercept mission; being held at 2 fighter jets as opposed to 4 or 6 when patrollong NY, communications, and more...
Flashback: 2 years ago, on June 29th 2009, The U.S. Supreme Court let a ruling stand regarding 9/11 lawsuits and Saudi Arabia. Reuters reported:
…Saudi Arabia, four of its princes and other Saudi entities cannot be held liable for the September 11, 2001, hijacked plane attacks in the United States.
The justices refused to review the ruling by a U.S. appeals court in New York that the Saudi defendants were protected by sovereign immunity in the lawsuit brought by victims of the attacks and their families.
The appeals court had upheld a lower court’s dismissal of the lawsuit claiming Saudi Arabia, four princes, a Saudi charity and a Saudi banker provided material support to al Qaeda before the September 11 attacks.
The victims and their families argued that because the defendants gave money to Muslim charities that in turn gave money to al Qaeda, they should be held responsible for helping to finance the attacks.
It took years of lobbying and partisan bickering, but the 9/11 Zadroga Act to help ailing Ground Zero responders finally took effect today.
The law provides $4.3 billion in guaranteed federal funding to cover health costs and financial compensation for emergency responders, recovery workers, volunteers, and residents who were affected by the attacks almost 10 years ago.
Advocates celebrated with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting against a backdrop of Star Spangled Banners at Mount Sinai’s 9/11 health clinic this morning.
National and city pols were also on hand, including Mayor Bloomberg, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and U.S. Reps. Jerrold Nadler, Charlie Rangel, and Carolyn Maloney.
If the mods can post this ASAP, some of you may be able to help me with questions. What would you ask TimDuffy, fighter-pilot of 9/11 if he came to your home-county? Suggestions in the comments section please!
Almost a decade after the nightmare of 9/11, former fighter pilot Tim Duffy still fields the questions:
What took you so long?
Why didn’t you get to lower Manhattan from your base on Cape Cod in time to at least protect the gashed and ablaze World Trade Center from being struck by a second airliner?
“I get that all the time,” Duffy said Friday during a visit to the Sonoma County aircraft museum that’s become guardian to the retired supersonic F-15 he flew that September morning in 2001.
U.S. Officially Drop all Charges Against Osama bin Laden, Still "No Evidence" for 9/11, War Expansion Costing a $Billion-a-Month
The UK's Daily Mail reported that the U.S. dropped charges against Bin Laden for the USS Cole and US Embassy bombings:
U.S. District Court judge Lewis Kaplan, who had been presiding over the bin Laden case in Manhattan federal court, issued an order called 'nolle prosequi', which means 'do not prosecute' in Latin, a typical legal move once a defendant is deceased.
Bin Laden was indicted back in 1998 in the Southern District of New York for his role in the al Qaeda attack on the U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, which killed more than 200 people, including a dozen Americans.
The indictment was later revised to charge bin Laden in the dual bombings of two American embassies in East Africa that killed 224 on August 7, 1998, and in the suicide attack on the USS Cole in 2000. None of the charges involved the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
NPR reports that the official death toll from 9/11 has been raised by 1, bringing the number to 2,753. The addition to the number of people who were murdered without a proper investigation on 9/11 came from a Manhattan worker, who inhaled the initial dust cloud (like thousands of other people) of the destroyed World Trade Center.
Last year, it was reported that upwards of 900 people had already died from 9/11 related illnesses. NY 1 reported last year:
Rodriguez, of Lindenhurst, L.I., the mother of two young boys, is among nearly 900 first responders to have died from an array of ailments traced to their service at the smoldering World Trade Center.
The clean-up of the WTC site was a disaster in many ways: From hasty removal of crime scene evidence to lies from the EPA and other agencies. Here is a clip from a report at World for 9/11 Truth:
Nearly 100,000 first responders have been exposed to toxic elements such as Asbestos and were not instructed to wear any special equipment to avoid medical problems. In fact, as demonstrated in the shocking documentary Dust to Dust: the Health Effects of 9/11, the EPA and the U.S. Government told them the air was safe to breathe.
Here is the full story from NPR:
Another day to remember is pointed out by the AP:
While Americans grieved the 9/11 attacks and U.S. troops went to war in Afghanistan, another army, one made up of ironworkers, heavy equipment operators and mason tenders, toiled day and night to clear away the destruction of the World Trade Center's twin towers in lower Manhattan and recover the bodies of the dead.
In just 8 1/2 months, an estimated 1.8 million tons of twisted steel and pulverized concrete were painstakingly removed, transforming a mountainous pile into a 16-acre hole that became known as The Pit.
By Memorial Day, it was all but over. The day after the holiday, workers cut down the last column of steel still standing at the site.
An article at Wired lets us know about "Jellyfish," a new "corporate-information" company:
Veterans from the most infamous private security firm on Earth and one of the military’s most controversial data mining operations are teaming up to provide the Fortune 500 with their own private spies.
Take one part Blackwater, and another part Able Danger, the military data-mining op that claimed to have identified members of al-Qaida living in the United States before 9/11. Put ‘em together, and you’ve got a new company called Jellyfish.
A poll has been conducted and is still available for voting at USA Today. The vote is concerning Rashard Mendenhall's loss of his corporate sponsor Champion apparel after his remarks about Bin Laden and 9/11.
The vote results right now will make you cringe, and we need to impact the results:
According to an AP press release and a CNN blog update it is being reported that the body of Usama Bin Laden has been dumped at sea in accordance with Islamic tradition.
The quick disposal of the body of Bin Laden is an amazing display of disregard to the situation, though disposal of evidence and 9/11 seem to be synonymous.
A U.S. official says Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea.
Larry Silverstein has won another court case and potentially hundreds-of-millions of more dollars due to the demolitions of 3 World Trade Center buildings on 9/11.
This article was originally posted at All Gov, with the bold added by myself:
The plaintiffs in the case are the owners of the World Trade Center and numerous insurance companies. They had originally sought $4.4 billion from the airlines and security companies
Another in a series of warships "honoring" 9/11 is christened into action.
From the Mississippi Sun Herald:
The third in a series of U.S. Navy amphibious assault vessels named in honor of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks [was] christened Saturday, and a key responder at the Pentagon nearly a decade ago is bringing the heroics of his fellow emergency workers with him.
The future USS Arlington is being built at the Northrop Grumman Corp. shipyard in Pascagoula. It's named in honor of Arlington County, Va., where American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, killing 184 people, after being hijacked en route from Washington-Dulles International Airport to Los Angeles.
The ship's sponsor is Joyce Rumsfeld, wife of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who was in the Pentagon on the day of the attack.
