9/11 Accusations Fly Within CIA

9/11 Accusations Fly Within CIA - CBS News

CIA Director Porter Goss must decide whether to heed the recommendation of his top watchdog to hold disciplinary reviews for current and former officials who were involved in faulty intelligence efforts before the Sept. 11 attacks.

But CBS News has learned that all of the former top CIA officials singled out in the inspector general's report have already filed strong rebuttals to the agency.

The officials named in the report — including former CIA Director George Tenet — view the inspector general's report as "wrongheaded and wildly off the mark," a former intelligence official told CBS News correspondent Peter Maer.

Los Angeles Times Issues Major 9/11 Interview With David Ray Griffin

Getting Agnostic About 9/11 - A society of nonbelievers questions the official version
All I can say is wow, someone in the media finally has the balls to bring to light the flaws in the official story of 9/11. The article features a brief introduction followed by a great interview with David Ray Griffin, be sure to read the whole thing.

Anyone who types the words "9/11" and "conspiracy" into an online search engine soon learns that not everybody buys the official narrative of what took place on Sept. 11, 2001. As a professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, 66-year-old David Ray Griffin would seem to have more affinity for leather elbow patches than tin hats, yet after friends and colleagues prodded him into sifting through the evidence, he experienced a conversion. Now he's spreading the bad news. Griffin compiled a summary of material arguing against the accepted story that 19 hijackers sent by Osama bin Laden took the aviation system and the U.S. military by surprise that awful day in his 2004 book "The New Pearl Harbor" (published by Interlink, a Massachusetts-based independent publisher covering areas including travel, cooking, world fiction, current events, politics, children's literature and other subjects). He recently followed up with the book "The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions" (Interlink), a critique of the Kean commission document in which he suggests that a chunk of the blame for the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil lies closer to home than the caves of Afghanistan. We contacted him at his Santa Barbara-area home for a report on his journey from mild-mannered scholar to doubting Thomas.

DailyKos Diary Member Tackles Able Danger Scandal

Must Read! The Neo-Con Able Danger Scandal -- Atta Coverup! UPDATE 5

Intel agents Tony Shaffer and Scott Philpott have confirmed Rep. Weldon's claims that a chart with Atta's face, soon the photos of 3 other members of the 9-11 terror team, were known to DIA team Able Danger by early 2000.

This diary will show that Pete Schoomaker and Philip Zelikow are two of the main Perpetraitors in this scandal, that they deliberately withheld information from the President of the United States that would have prevented 9/11, that they and their neo-con rulers Let It Happen On Purpose.

Jersey Girls Sick and Tired of 9/11 CIA Report Being Blocked

Regarding the Release of the CIA Inspector General's Report post- 9/11

Statement of September 11th Advocates
For Immediate Release -- August 25, 2005

We are deeply disturbed to learn that an investigation of the CIA, conducted at the direction of the Joint House and Senate Congressional Intelligence Committees in 2002, will not be declassified and released as soon as possible.

This report presumably discusses failures within the CIA and identifies performance deficiencies among high-ranking CIA officials. The findings in this report must be shared with all members of Congress and with the American public to ensure that the problems identified are addressed and corrected, thus moving to restore faith in this agency.

Conservative Magazine Covers William Rodriguez Press Conference

William Rodriguez, a 9-11 Survivor - The Conservative Voice

A press release was sent to all of the print media in the Chicago area about a month in advance of this event. There was a very tiny isolated notice about the event in one of the Chicago papers. Surely the local newspapers would wish to interview the participants on such an important subject as 9-11. But, only one Hispanic television station sent a journalist and a camera. So we must assume that the other Chicago news organizations have already determined exactly what they desire their readers to believe about 9-11. Let's not deviate from the government version and confuse people with the truth!

Editorial Cartoon from Today

Great new cartoon I came across today on Cagle's Political Cartoons. Who wants to guess how long before the Bush administration starts accussing decenting Americans of having forgotten about 9/11?

Weird how Bush didn't carry the very state in which 9/11 occurred in the 2004 election, I guess they have all forgotten about 9/11 too. Funny how that works.

David Ray Griffin, Jenna Orkin, and Ray McGovern Videos from Truth Emergency has just posted a few videos that are worth checking out. Griffin does a great speech on Iraq, 9/11, and how theology lies with the actions of the Bush administration, while Jenna Orkin discusses the environmental disaster which occurred on 9/11.

Massive Post Vacation Grab Bag

I really hate to do this, but quite simply I cannot catch up on the articles which came out while I was gone quick enough. I have more stuff than I can go through right now, so instead of gradually posting and commenting on articles over the next week I am going to just dump a load of recent 9/11 related articles in this post vacation grab bag.
