Your very own co-founder of 9/11Blogger has finally written a book! '9/11 Truther' details Jon's experiences in the 9/11 truth movement and why it is still vitally important to the welfare of the world that the event be fully investigated for the purposes of justice, accountability, and peace.
Jon is a personal friend of mine whose work I've followed for years. I've often played the role of sounding board for Jon, a man whose early life experiences mirror many of my own.
He is a working class gentleman who has dedicated his life to spreading the message of the Jersey Girls, to doing everything in his power to help the forgotten, neglected, and ailing 9/11 First Responders, and to spreading the ideas and beliefs of many great American icons such as Martin Luther King, Jr and Cindy Sheehan.
Speaking of Cindy Sheehan, she was kind enough to author the foreword to Jons' book. Cindy is an elegant wordsmith. She is a woman that has earned my utmost respect for being consistent, outspoken, and incendiary. She does not disappoint here.
Today, Secrecy Kills.com released part 1 of their audio documentary, 'Who Is Rich Blee?'
The podcast can be found at the Secrecy Kills website.
The investigative work was originally to be released on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, but the creators of the documentary were threatened with federal prosecution by the CIA because they had unearthed the names of two CIA agents involved in the withholding of key information from the FBI and Whitehouse.
Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy released a statement in response to the CIA threat that is also available on their website.
[This is an outstanding piece of journalism that has taken Ray and John several years to bring to us. The work of people like Paul Thompson and Kevin Fenton has been a tremendous help to the 9/11 truth, justice, and accountability movement for many years now. I urge everyone that is interested in the truth of 9/11 to disseminate this as widely as you can. Part 2 will become available on October 11, 2011. -zbh]
The Warnings Were Not Obscure
By MISSY COMLEY BEATTIE
Our experiences and what we do with them shape and determine our trajectory. Often, they change us gradually; sometimes, they are immediately life altering. So much so that months, even years later, a thought, a song, even an aroma can transport us, abruptly, into the past. Some events are wonderful. Others are brutal.
The phone call from my sister, telling me that Chase was killed in Iraq, is among the brutal.
My nephew, Chase Comley, died a little over five years ago. He enlisted in the military because he believed our freedoms were in jeopardy, a message George Bush gaveled into the American psyche after 19 hijackers used planes as weapons to attack US symbols of power on 9/11.
This week, we mark the ninth anniversary of that turning point, the day that invokes images of death and destruction, and the date that heralded our post-9/11 world with its increased militarism/imperialism resulting in more death and destruction, mainstream media failure, the Patriot Act, a surveillance state, torture, indefinite detention, military tribunals, corporatism, economic collapse, and Islamophobia.
Here is the 9/11 Report. I suggest you read it, and ask others to read it to understand the "official account."
After that, I suggest you ask people to watch "9/11: Press For Truth"...
Then I suggest you ask people to watch the companion DVD "In Their Own Words: The Untold Stories Of The 9/11 Families"...
Then I suggest you recommend the "Complete 9/11 Timeline" to get people started...
Then I suggest you recommend this series of movies I made called "What's Being Covered Up?"...
Then I suggest you recommend the report on the inadequacies of the 9/11 Commission's Report compiled by 9/11 Family Members Lorie Van Auken and Mindy Kleinberg...
Then I suggest you show people this list of unanswered questions compiled by the 9/11 Family Steering Committee...

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff.
Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.
Im particularly delighted to present this video to 911Blogger because of the hand I had in securing Dr. Wasfi a presentation at the conference.
Dr. Wasfi was featured in a video by Paradigm Shift called "What You Didn't Know About the War" which can be viewed here:
This was my first exposure to Ms. Wasfi, and when I heard that my good friend Jon Gold was helping Betsy Orr Metz organize the Treason In America conference, I bugged Jon for days telling him that he should get Dahlia an invite. Jon took the consideration, did his own research, and found Dahlia to be an excellent candidate for someone who should be speaking at the conference.
The stars aligned and the decision to invite her was made. Thank you to Jon Gold, Betsy Metz, and the lovely Dahlia Wasfi for giving us an excellent presentation on the realities of war and occupation in the middle east.
On Saturday March 20th, a huge anti-war rally and march was held at Lafayette Park in Washington D.C. It was sponsored by A.N.S.W.E.R. Speakers included Cindy Sheehan, Ann Wright, Ralph Nader, Matthis Chiroux, Mike Ferner, and many others.
The march ended in front of the White House. Some of the protesters placed faux coffins representing different countries we have harmed during these illegal wars against the fence in front of the White House. The Park Police set up a perimeter around these coffins using the “POLICE DO NOT CROSS” tape. My guess would be it was around 50ft x 50ft on the front sidewalk of the White House. People like Matthis Chiroux laid down in front of the coffins to protest. If you entered this zone, you were arrested. I refer to it as an arbitrary “arrest zone.”
Cindy Sheehan, myself, and others walked through the crowd until we reached the barrier closest to those laying down on the sidewalk. As you can see in this video, the barrier failed, and Cindy Sheehan walked across. As soon as she entered the “arrest zone,” the Park Police immediately grabbed her, and handcuffed her. They were literally manhandling her.
Congratulations to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
They have reached the milestone number of 1000 A&Es!
Good job, everyone, discuss.
'Green Jobs' Adviser's Past Could Stir Trouble for White House at Critical Time
President Obama's "green jobs" adviser could become a mounting liability for the Obama administration, as the latest revelation about Van Jones shows his belief that the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks may have been an inside job.
Jones joined the "9/11 truther" movement by signing a statement in 2004 calling for then-New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and others to launch an investigation into evidence that suggests "people within the current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."
The statement asked a series of critical questions hinting at Bush administration involvement in the attacks and called for "deeper inquiry." It was also signed by former Rep. Cynthia McKinney and Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans.
The discovery comes after Jones had to apologize Wednesday night for "offensive words" he uttered in February when he called Republicans "assholes." He said the remarks "do not reflect the views of this administration" and its bipartisan aims.
But such statements just scratch the surface of Jones' past commentary.
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has officially reached over 700 members. Congratulations!
Please continue directing people to view and sign the petition in addition to introducing other architects, engineers, and scientists to read the Active Thermitic Materials and 14 Points papers.
While you're at it, give them FSC document highlighted by Jon Gold found here:
Let's do our best to stay united and make 2009 the biggest year yet for 9/11 truth breakthroughs! As LeftWright says, Love is a verb, so lets get busier.
Congratulations to AE911Truth and the 9/11 Truth movement for gathering 500 signatures from the AE community. Well done!
Onward to 1000!

Leaked confidential NIST documents concerning the investigation into the collapse of WTC 7, the 47-storey skyscraper that was not hit by a plane but imploded in under seven seconds on 9/11, reveal that an "unusual" event preceded the collapse of the building - a "jet of flames" that shot out of several windows after most of the fire had already died down.
The documents - entitled Confidential and Predecisonal Document NIST Report on Building 7 - form the preamble for a long-awaited final verdict on what caused a structurally reinforced building to fall like a controlled demolition despite suffering relatively minimal fire damage.
Chapter 1: WTC 7 Visual Evidence, Damage Estimates, and Timeline Analysis (William Pitts) is a thorough analysis of window fires by video and picture evidence, which concludes that all major fires before floors 7 and 13 died out prior to collapse.
The report states, "At 4:38 p.m. all of the windows between 13-44A and 13-47C were open, and the fires responsible for opening the windows had died down to the point where they could no longer be observed."
Here's an idea: To celebrate AE911Truth's reaching of 300 architects and Engineers, and 1,145 other supporters, I propose a spontaneous money bomb to help continue supporting Richard Gage's excellent work.
Ideally, folks could donate $300 or as much as they can to show support of his work.
Let's also continue to send local architects and engineers copies of Richard's truth cards and DVDs to get that number up to 1000 A/E professionals by 9.11.08.

Will DOJ Look into the First Death of a U.S. 9/11 Researcher?
By Sander Hicks
October 14, 2007
From 9/24 to 10/1/07 I traveled throughout Louisiana and Texas, with reporter Jordan Green, investigating the death of 9/11 researcher Dr. David Graham.
Our suspicions were validated: there’s a huge story here. It’s almost overwhelming. The best way to summarize is to publish my complaint filed last week with the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General.
If you support an investigation into the death of Dr. Graham, please say so, in the comments section, at the end. (Please send me your email, too, I may be doing some sort of activism around this. Mine is sander [at] voxpopnet.net)

The following is a story which appeared in Big Issue No. 765, 8-15 October, 2007, pp. 6-9. John Bird, the publisher, was intent upon meeting her in person, but was off to Japan just as she was arriving in the UK. The reporter, Helena Drakakis, was one of the few British journalists who has covered the 9/11 Truth Movement, having done a story about William Rodriguez and his tour of the UK earlier this year.
Courage Under Fire
A constant thorn in the US government’ side, controversial former congresswoman Cynthia Mckinney tells Helena Drakakis why the authorities have been revealed as ‘huge liars’
Cynthia McKinney hates the word ‘conspiracy’. As a former democrat and congresswoman she is never more than one step away from controversy, and she’s in London to promote the 9/11 Truth Movement, an organisation which disputes the official version of the Twin Towers attacks in 2001.
New Evidence that the Official Story about 9/11 is Indefensible
by David Ray Griffin
Early in 2007, Interlink Books published my Debunking 9/11 Debunking: An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official Conspiracy Theory. The stimulus for my writing this book was the appearance in August 2006---just before the fifth anniversary of 9/11---of four publications intended to bolster the official account by debunking the alternative view, according to which 9/11 was an inside job. The most explicit and well-known of these publications was a book by Popular Mechanics entitled Debunking 9/11 Myths.
This is the second video that Ive compiled to motivate and mobilize the truth community to be out in full force on 9/11/07, in New York especially.
Please spread this around to everyone you know so that we can get as many heads as possible for the NY event fund raiser.
Hope you like it..
(this is just a draft -zbh)
First, the basics:
World Trade Building Seven was a 47 storey steel-framed highrise building that made up part of the New York skyline until September 11, 2001. In fact, on that terrible day, no passenger jet struck building 7. To be fair, WTC 7 was a good 350 feet from the North Tower, the closest of the Twin Towers. Nestled between the North Tower and building 7 were WTC 5 and 6. These were not tall buildings, probably no more than 30 storeys combined. They were pounded with falling debris from the destruction of the Twin Towers, and yet, at the end of the day, these two buildings, part of a circle of seven standing buildings surrounding the compact debris pile of WTC 7, proved to be stronger than the building that housed NY's Office of Emergency Management, the NY CIA station's offices, the Secret Services NY offices, the Securities and Exchange Commissions offices, and so on.
World Trade Building 7 fell to the earth at around 5:20 PM on 9/11. The characteristic failure of the buildings structural supports was fairly unusual; I will list some of them:
1. The Building 'Collapsed' Suddenly:
The upcoming anniversary of 9/11 is going to be an important one, for many reasons.
We Are Change.org is attempting to make this the biggest event yet for 9/11 Truth.
There will be featured guest speakers like Alex Jones, John Feal, Aaron Russo, and Dylan Avery.
There will be a TruthConcert featuring Remo Conscious, Dave Cahill, Roy Shivers and (hopefully) Immortal Technique.
...And the premier of Loose Change Final Cut, for the world to see.
Visit the new website for all the details.
UPDATE: Rumor has it the episode has been Canceled, more info to come...
Dont forget to tune in to The View on thursday, May 24!
William Rodriguez will be appearing alongside Dylan Avery and Korey Rowe.
This recent development is bittersweet; it was assumed by many that when Rosie O'Donnell said "we'll go to Harvard", that The View would invite as guests scientists or professionals such as Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, etc. However, I would still consider this a positive event given the fact that there are few and far between a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement gets a fair shake in the mainstream media.
On May 24, an average audience of 3.2 million viewers will be able to witness the testimony of 9/11 hero William Rodriguez, and talking points will be presented by the Louder Than Words crew, in addition to promoting the latest version of their film, now known as Loose Change: Final Cut.
