Slow day today for 9/11 related news, asside from the continuing coverage of 'Able Danger'.

Have at it.

Peter Dale Scott Video From D.C. Truth Emergency has just posted a speech by Peter Dale Scott from the Truth Emergency Convergence here.

He spoke on the subject of unity in the movements involved in the Truth Emergency Convergence in D.C. and the need to avoid allowing differences of opinion to fracture a group that is unified in its goals.

The Jersey Girls Receive 'Wings of Justice Award' From

Wings of Justice - The Jersey Girls

Like Cindy Sheehan, the "Jersey Girls" are pursuing a precious and rarely seen commodity in the Bush Administration: the truth. Kristen Breitweiser, Mindy Kleinberg, Lorie Van Auken and Patty Casazza have dogged the White House since 9/11, wanting to know the truth about what government errors led to the loss of their husbands in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

When they began their journey, what they didn't know was that the administration that ran its 2000 election on a platform of transparency in government had shut -- tighter than a safe at Fort Knox -- the doors on truth. Of course, when a president and national security adviser receive a briefing paper that tells them Al-Qaeda plans to hijack planes in the United States -- and they both ignore it and do absolutely nothing to prevent the action -- you might say the Jersey Girls had good reason to suspect that they weren't going to hear the full story.

More on 'Able Danger'

For some reason or another the omission of 'Able Danger' from the 9/11 Commission report is gaining massive media coverage. I find this particularly interesting as the media has not found any of their other ommissions and distortions worth covering, let alone the recent 9/11 Congressional Briefing.

In any event, Daniel Hopsicker, from, has written a new article in response to the recent articles about 'Able Danger'.

Sibel Edmonds on Democracy Now Discusses Corruption Involved With 9/11

Did Speaker Hastert Accept Turkish Bribes to Deny Armenian Genocide and Approve Weapons Sales?

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds is accusing the FBI of covering up improper contacts and financial dealings between certain Turkish nationals and the office of House Speaker Dennis Hastert. We speak with Sibel Edmonds and Vanity Fair journalist David Rose.

Robert Bowman Video Downloads From D.C. Truth Emergency have posted Robert Bowman's speech from the Truth Emergency Convergence held in July. You can find part one and part two here. The first part is not directly related to 9/11, but the second half is. He is an amazing speaker, perhaps due to his military background, and has a way of really stiring up some emotions when he says 'Treason!'. Check the videos out.

Sibel Edmonds Interview with

'The Stakes Are Too High for Us to Stop Fighting Now' - An interview with FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds

SE: The fact that there are no investigations – I will give you an analogy, okay? Say if we decided to have a "war on drugs," but said in the beginning, "right, we're only going to go after the young black guys on the street level." Hey, we already have tens of thousands of them in our jails anyway, why not a few more? But we decided never to go after the middle levels, let alone the top levels…

It's like this with the so-called war on terror. We go for the Attas and Hamdis – but never touch the guys on the top.

Late Night Grab Bag

Been a while since I did a grab bag. Tonight's grab bag is basically a listing of current 9/11 related commentary coming from the mainstream press. It seems as though the 'right' has decided to pick up the discussion of a 9/11 coverup as a way to make it a partisan issue, specifically to blame it squarely on Clinton. Also included are further followup to the recent 'Able Danger' articles, the upcoming National Geographic 9/11 documentary, and an 'Al-Queda militant' who claims he funded and provided visas for 9/11 high-jackers.

Check them out and post some comments.

Prior Knowledge of WTC7 Collapse Found in Newly Released Tapes

WTC7 collapse foreknowledge on FDNY tapes - Total 911 Info


A. Yes, Stuyvesant High School, until they figured out, I guess, there was no gas leak or no secondary bomb. Or no bomb. I guess they put the PD in there to search it. They moved us back south. We ended up back up on Vesey Street and West Street and just hanging out until tower 7 came down.
Then we found out, I guess around 3:00 o'clock, that they thought 7 was going to collapse.
Basically, we fell back for 7 to collapse, and then we waited a while and it got a lot more organized, I would guess.
