After days of brutal interrogations, in which he was slammed against walls, slapped in the gut, and repeatedly waterboarded — “near drownings” that caused him to vomit — 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed told his CIA interrogators he was “ready to talk.”
The story he told in March 2003: He had sent an al-Qaida operative to Montana to recruit African-Americans for terrorist attacks inside the U.S. The alarming new claim sent FBI agents scrambling to find evidence of the plot, but they came up with nothing.
And for good reason: KSM later admitted he had fabricated the story — that because he was being subjected to such rough measures, he “simply told his interrogators what he thought they wanted to hear,” according to an internal agency cable quoted in the mammoth Senate Intelligence Committee report released on Tuesday by the panel’s chair, Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
EXCLUSIVE: In 1967, at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, the Israeli Air Force launched an unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty, a US Navy spy ship that was monitoring the conflict from the safety of international waters in the Mediterranean.
Israeli jet fighters hit the vessel with rockets, cannon fire and napalm, before three Israeli torpedo boats moved in to launch a second more devastating attack. Though she did not sink, the Liberty was badly damaged. Thirty-four US servicemen and civilian analysts were killed, another 171 were wounded.
Later Israel apologized for what it claimed to be a tragic case of mistaken identity. It said that it had believed the ship to be hostile Egyptian naval vessel. US President Lyndon Johnson was privately furious but publicly the White House chose not to challenge the word of its closest Middle East ally and accepted that the attack had been a catastrophic accident.

After two long weeks of waiting, New York Supreme Court Justice Paul Wooten finally issued a decision in our case late yesterday afternoon, affirming the court-appointed referee’s report in its entirety, and ruling that the High-Rise Safety Initiative will not appear on the November 4, 2014ballot.
We are tremendously disappointed that Justice Wooten did not reverse the referee’s recommendations, in particular, the referee’s poorly reasoned conclusion that the petition amounts to a “merely advisory” referendum.
Wooten did call the City’s attempt to have the case dismissed on a procedural technicality “irrational and misplaced, particularly, when the result would be the voter disenfranchisement of more than 30,000 registered voters, without due process.” But we also expected him to weigh in on the legal issues, which he did not, instead simply deferring to the referee.
We Have Decided Not to Appeal
Ben Swann appeared on RT International, Thursday to discuss U.S. airstrikes in Syria. Among the issues discussed, why the U.S. claims it is attempting to preserve oil fields in Syria while simultaneously striking those fields.
Swann spoke about what makes this “war with ISIS” truly unique. The U.S., he says, is creating a perpetual state of war by attacking ISIS on one hand while simultaneously funding ISIS indirectly though the Free Syrian Army.
This "docu-thriller" from father-turned-filmmaker, David Hooper takes us on a journey of awakening that begins with an innocent question. Soon, his life is turned upside down as he grapples with the life-changing conclusions of his findings. The film was made to wake up his friends and family. Now, it's poised to wake everyone else.

"Truthers commemorate 9/11 with Times Square ad showing WTC 7 imploding on infinite loop"
A group calling itself Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is commemorating the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center by displaying a massive digital advertisement in Times Square that purports to show World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7) falling in a controlled demolition.
“WTC 7 came down in a classic controlled demolition,” the advertisement claims. “The government says fire brought it down, but anyone who watches the video can see otherwise.” Behind those words, video of WTC 7 falling repeats on a loop.
The digital advertisement is 15 seconds long, and will be displayed on 45-foot by 45-foot screens that will be visible, the group claims, to almost 100,000 people daily — including employees of The New York Times.
As the anchorman for CBS News, Dan Rather was part of numerous breaking stories on the day of 9/11 and its immediate aftermath. Several of these reports have disturbing implications regarding the nature of the attacks and the perpetrators. Here are some prime examples:
"Amazing, incredible... pick your word. For the 3rd time today.... it's reminiscent of the those pictures we've all seen too much on television before where a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down." Dan called it like he saw it. There are now 2,300 architects and engineers who agree: www.ae911truth.org
9/10 -- the day BEFORE 9/11 -- is a day so full of suspicious activity that it begs to be investigated closely for indications of who had foreknowledge and complicity in the following day's "surprise attacks." Dozens of these oddities exist, but I will feature seven.

The next morning the Pentagon is hit in the exact location where budget analysts were trying to track down the missing money, killing analysts and destroying records.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Seattle head coach Pete Carroll hosted a retired four-star general at the Seahawks facility last spring and blitzed him with questions about whether the 9/11 attacks “had been planned or faked” by the government, according to Deadspin.com.
Decorated general Peter Chiarelli, who had just called it a career, was discussing football and brain injuries with Carroll before the conversation took a turn, Deadspin reported.
“Every 9/11 conspiracy theory you can think of, Pete asked about,” former NFL linebacker Riki Ellison told Deadspin.
Ellison said Carroll “didn’t stop at 9/11—he had lots of questions about the role of the military today.”
As 9/11 Continues to Justify State Crimes, New Book Reveals Suspects
Posted on June 14, 2013 by Kevin Ryan
The U.S. government has turned to 9/11 again in order to justify its program of spying on all Americans and to support a new, expanded war in Syria. Yet as Americans are distracted by these ongoing crimes, the deception behind the origin of the War on Terror is being more fully revealed.
Were the crimes of September 11, 2001 solely the work of Osama bin Laden and nineteen troubled young Arabs, or were more powerful people involved? After a decade of investigation Kevin Ryan, the co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies, offers an evidence-based analysis of nineteen other suspects.
Cyrus Vance's office ignores evidence, law, and offer to confer privately
Former 9/11 Commissioners speak out about the lies and manipulation of their "exposition." (They admit it was not a criminal investigation). This is a compilation of all available Commissioner quotes and video clips. If they don't buy the official story, why do you?
If being a 'truther' means you reject the official story as being false and demand further investigation, then MOST of the 9/11 Commissioners are truthers!
Contact Geraldo Rivera, host of "Geraldo At Large," a nationally syndicated show on Fox News Channel and urge him to report on the Rethink911 campaign that is currently in 12 major cities and includes a billboard in Times Square. Tell him that 2,000 architects and engineers plus family members want a real WTC investigation and are sponsoring this campaign, and that Bob McIlvaine and Tony Szamboti will reappear as guests on his show! Let him know that the campaign has been reported on by Ben Swann, CBS-Philadelphia, and Time Magazine -- and is causing much controversy in Ottawa, Canada about freedom of speech issues. Inform him about the new public opinion poll which shows that half of Americans have doubts about the official 9/11 story. Be sure to include the website: http://www.Rethink911.org
After all Geraldo did report on the BuildingWhat? campaign in 2010 that was seen nationally and triggered a frenzy of other media coverage. Clearly it's worth taking a second to email him. He likes to report on controversial issues.
Geraldo At Large airs Weekends 10 PM ET on Fox News Channel nationally.
Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth joined several other organizations and everyday citizens on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, engaging other New Yorkers and encouraging them to rethink 9/11. ReThink911 (http://www.ReThink911.org) is a global awareness campaign to bring the world's attention to 9/11 best evidence and a growing demand for a new independent investigation into the events of 9/11.
Kevin Ryan interviewed on nationally syndicated radio program, Coast To Coast AM, August 31, 2013. The show is broadcast on more than 500 stations across the US and Canada and averages 2 million listeners.
