9/11 Whistleblower Shaffer: I’m Not a Truther

On January 20th, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer came to Wayne PA to speak at the Anthony Wayne Movie Theater. Shaffer is a 9/11 whistleblower. Within the last year, he released a book entitled, Operation Dark Heart. The Pentagon heavily redacted the book. They purchased the first 10,000 copies that weren't redacted, and burned them. As Peter Lance points out:

"Shaffer’s book rips the lid off several stories the bureaucrats wanted to suppress: the role of a program named Able Danger in yielding information that could have uncovered the 9/11 plot; Operation Dark Heart, which could have nabbed Al Qaeda’s number two leader; and early indications that Pakistan’s spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence, or ISI, actively supported the Taliban. These are the incendiary bombs the censors tried to defuse. And this is the real story of Tony Shaffer’s book."

The Pakistani ISI was alleged to have a role in the 9/11 attacks. The United States Government has gone to great lengths to cover up their alleged involvement. I wanted to ask Anthony if he thought this was part of the reason the Pentagon wanted the ISI's relationship to the Taliban/terrorists redacted from the book. I got my chance.

Anthony will tell you that he's not a "truther." However, he acknowledges that there needs to be a common ground between us if we are to be successful. With that, I agree.

Janette MacKinlay RIP

http://911truthnews.com/janette-mackinlay-rip

Janette was a beautiful, caring and creative person. She lived next to the World Trade Center and barely survived 9/11. The toxicity took her life 10 years later. Janette was one of the 9/11 survivors who provided the WTC dust samples which were analyzed with the results being published in the Active Thermitic Material paper. Janette worked to heal her trauma through her art and she created much beauty out of her pain. I'm thankful for the time we spent together.

Here is a video of Janette speaking in November 2006:

Rest in peace Janette

Gawker Trashes "Truthers"

Reporting on Jon Stewart's executive producer Rory Albanese being arrested after punching a We Are Change activist in the face, trendy celebrity gossip site Gawker refers to the punched activist as a "typical Truther asshole". The rest of the entry is the usual insipid hate-inspiring trash you might expect from such an uninformed source, with commenters joining in with the likes of "I think it should be completely legal to punch or otherwise assault a 9/11 Truther. And I'm not joking."

Gawker exhibits a hint of a clue when it points out that the incident has been completely unreported in the media: "Pretty amazing, especially given the easy joke to be made by juxtaposing Albanese's arrest with Jon Stewart's huge rally calling on everyone to be nice to each other." Indeed. It should be noted that WAC's ham-fisted confrontation of Stewart and company was met with heavy criticism from many in the 9/11 truth movement. Has sanity been restored yet?

At the 2010 Anarchist Bookfair in London there was a discussion with independent journalist and filmmaker John Pilger (which was recorded - listen below) and one of the questions from the audience was about the attacks on 9/11. The following is a transcript of the question and his reply:

Audience Question: "I would like to ask your views or theory that the US government was complicit in or even perpetrated the attacks on 9/11 to gain support for criminal [inaudible] Afghanistan and Iraq?"

John Pilger: "I think there is a lot of evidence that certain elements in the Bush administration, whether by intent or by or by their own arrogant incompetence, I don't know, let things happen. I think there is enough evidence to...

We know the senior FBI people who gave warnings right throughout 2001. We know about the extraordinary inactivity by the NORAD aircraft on the day of September 11th. We know that Cheney was in charge of the White House on that day.

Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr has published Jon Gold’s encyclopedic 9/11 research article The Facts Speak For Themselves on the front page of her Roseanne World blog. Under the headline “brilliant analysis, Jon Gold“, Roseanne urged her fans: PLEASE READ THIS!

Two days ago, Barr posted a blog entitled “people are saying that 9-11 was an inside bush job“, which led to a lively discussion and Barr inviting Gold onto her radio show as a guest. Roseanne Barr is best known for her hugely successful network television show, Roseanne, which ran from 1988 to 1997.

Cindy Sheehan: “I am a 9/11 truther”

Peace activist Cindy Sheehan has given support to the cause of 9/11 truth many times over the past few years but on the eve of the ninth anniversary, she made her position clearer than ever before. To an enthusiastic packed house at All Souls Church in New York City, Sheehan declared "I am a 9/11 truther. I do think it was an inside job."

Sheehan lost her son Casey in the Iraq invasion and has since dedicated her life to ending war and injustice. She is most widely known for setting up camp on the edge of George W. Bush's Texas property in 2005, demanding that the president answer one single question from a mother whose son died in the war.

Since that time, Sheehan has continued her activism. She is a fierce critic of the Obama administration's continued occupations and drone attacks, and recently founded Peace of the Action to further her anti-war activities.

On Friday, in the crowded All Souls Church on the upper East Side of Manhattan, Sheehan spoke of many injustices related to the war, both at home and abroad. She spoke of being tear gassed and shot at with rubber bullets while protesting. She spoke of the recently reported "Kill Squad" in Afghanistan, where members of the US military collected the fingers of slaughtered civilians for souvenirs. "That's not something new," Sheehan said.

She urged the crowd to consider the lives of the Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani people and said, "We're the occupiers - it's up to us to do something about it".

When the topic turned to 9/11, Sheehan stated "I am a 9/11 truther." She paused while the appreciative crowd cheered loudly and then said, "I do think it was an inside job. We just don't know - I don't know - how far inside it went. But, you know, I'm sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it."

While not making it her main issue, Sheehan has spoken freely regarding her opinions on 9/11 truth over the past few years. She has offered her support to the 9/11 truth movement in various interviews and participated in conferences. Sheehan also serves as an adviser to the recently launched 9/11 Truth News (911truthnews.com).

Citing the 30,000 mostly young people who die each day from starvation, Sheehan left the crowd with this thought: "Every day, ten 9/11s occur around the world. It's time to start acting locally, but thinking globally."

Mainstream Media Boycott for 9/11 Justice

An activist group is calling for a complete boycott of corporate mainstream media, starting on the 9th anniversary of 9/11. According the group's facebook page, "Mainstream media networks have barely touched the surface of what happened... Through their negligence, they have made a mockery of the unanswered questions held by the victims' families, and greatly dishonored the 3,000 people who died on 9/11. This must change." The group is urging those who agree to join the boycott, during which participants will rely only on independent media sources for their news. On their page, the group suggests several alternatives to mainstream news, including Raw Story and Information Clearinghouse.

A Response to Kevin Barrett’s Attacks

When we launched 9/11 Truth News, we knew we would be attacked.

And no one on the team was surprised when the first attacks came from people claiming to be on the side of 9/11 truth.

On Monday August 30, 2010, it came to my attention that I was the target of three hit pieces that had been published in rapid succession. The most prominent of these attacks came from Kevin Barrett, a self-declared 9/11 truth leader with a long history of actions and statements considered by many to be extremely discrediting to the 9/11 truth movement. Under an ugly, libelous headline on his "Truth Jihad" blog, Barrett issued a venomous litany of bizarre accusations against me: I'm probably an agent of the state, perhaps stalking his family, I'm a "wrecker" getting him kicked off conference lineups and - to top it off - there's evidence that I may actually be living a secret double life as a supporter of the official 9/11 story.

Barrett has been accusing associates of mine of being agents for years now, so these kinds of weird lies are nothing new. This time though, his headlined defamation was something altogether more sickening. The filth oozing forth from Kevin Barrett does not deserve to be dignified with any kind of response whatsoever. But the fact that these smears represent an attack on a dedicated activist with a very strong record - by a supposed "9/11 truth leader" with a large audience (multiple appearances on FOX News, a radio show, books for sale) - at a very critical time in this movement - demands that the issue be addressed.

Report Calls for “Infiltration” of 9/11 Sites

Source: 9/11 Truth News

A new report released by a think tank called Demos warns of the hazardous effects of conspiracy theories on society and recommends strategies for governments to mitigate these effects, including the infiltration of websites.

The report, called The Power of Unreason: Conspiracy Theories, Extremism and Counterterrorism, says "most notoriously and influentially, the ‘9/11 truth movement’ has questioned the official accounts of 9/11 and has become a large and growing political force."

The report notes that the 9/11 truth movement is "peaceful", but makes no distinction between the legitimate questioning of the official account of 9/11 and any number of unrelated, and often racist, conspiracy theories.
