Fire Department 9/11 Recordings and Records WILL be Released

Four Years After 9/11, FDNY Will Release Remaining EMS Recordings

Nearly four years after the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center, the New York City Fire Department will release its remaining audio recordings made by emergency dispatchers on the day of the attacks.

The FDNY is releasing the recordings on the order of the New York State Court of Appeals, after the New York Times and several 9/11 families brought suit to gain access to the materials under the state's Freedom of Information Law.

Paris Suburb of Essonne Opens 9/11 Inquiry?

9/11 conspiracy DVD sent to French media

PARIS, France (UPI) -- Hundreds of French reporters have received copies of a DVD claiming the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks were fabricated by the Bush administration.

Titled "Confronting the Evidence," and posted from New York, the DVD claims that the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were a lie orchestrated by U.S. President George W. Bush.

The news was reported Friday in Le Figaro newspaper, whose reporters were among those who received copies of the DVD.

ACLU Article on Sibel Edmonds with Video

ACLU Urges Supreme Court to Review Case of FBI Whistleblower

The American Civil Liberties Union today urged the U.S. Supreme Court to review a lower court's dismissal of the case of Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator who was fired in retaliation for reporting security breaches and possible espionage within the Bureau. Lower courts dismissed the case when former Attorney General John Ashcroft invoked the rarely used "state secrets" privilege.

Sibel Edmonds Vanity Fair Issue - PDF

Just got an email with a link to download the Vanity Fair article on Sibel Edmonds. It was posted on POGO, The Project on Government Oversite, in this thread here.

You can grab the PDF file directly here.
EDIT: Download was taken down, you can grab it here now.

EDIT: This is definitely big news. While it is not directly related to 9/11, it does show proof to larger scale corruption in the FBI which is allowed to exist while the whistleblowers are fired and punished. Definitely worth the read, albeit a very long one.

Vanity Fair to Reveal More on Sibel Edmonds' Case

Slow day for 9/11 related news, but feel free to discuss whatever else may be going on.

Flight77.info Posts Government Filing in Pentagon FOIA Request

The owner of flight77.info has posted the response from the government to his FOIA request for the confiscated videotapes showing Flight 77 hitting the pentagon.

Apparently the government is claiming that releasing these videos would interfere with the prosecution of Zacarias Moussaoui. I'm not exactly sure how releasing a video could interfere with that court case if what is contained on the video is the same as the official story.

Is this really a valid reason not to release the video footage to the public?
