Popular Mechanics: The Book

On August 15th, Popular Mechanics will release a major disinfo book on 9/11. Here's the Amazon listing.

The Empire strikes back . . .

John Mccain wrote the introduction.

The 9/11 Commission Report...

...Two Years Later

It's been two years since the publication of the 9/11 Commission Report. The Executive Director of the Commission was Philip D. Zelikow. According to journalist Paul Sperry, in effect, Zelikow set the agenda for the Commission and ran the investigation. He didn't need a vote. This is confirmed by Peter Lance, and fleshed out in some detail by Bryan Sacks.

Congressional candidate stumps on conspiracy

Former UCO kayaking instructor Matthew Horton Woodson is taking a leap from extreme sports to extreme politics with his controversial independent ticket bid for Oklahoma's fifth district position in the U.S. House of Representatives.
...
What distinguishes Woodson from the pack of Republicans and Democrats vying for the same seat is his outspoken belief that the American government has been lying to the public about the events of September 11, 2001.

Veterans Go Freeway Blogging

The Veterans for 9/11 Truth dedicates this sign to all service men and women who died in a war created by a false flag operation. The graves in the background are in a VA cemetery in Milwaukee, WI.

I contacted the Veterans a couple of days ago to get an update on the progress they had made in the few short months they have been in existence. Here is their response (paraphrased):

New Book by David Ray Griffin

Here's an announcement for a new book by David Ray Griffin. Please pay attention to what some of the reviewers, like Ray McGovern and William Sloane Coffin (a prominent liberal minister, recently deceased), are saying.

More and more Christian leaders are embracing 9/11 truth. And since all of us know a Christian, recommend Griffin's new book as widely as possible. And if you go to church, please give a copy to your ministers.

Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11:
A Call to Reflection and Action
Westminster John Knox Press, 2006
David Ray Griffin

"Professor David Ray Griffin has a well-deserved reputation for the thoroughness of his research. All Americans who love their country enough to dig into the facts of these critical times will be well rewarded by examining his books. 9/11 truth is a very important issue---one with the power to bring lasting change to our country.”-—The Reverend William Sloane Coffin Jr, author of Credo: Letters to a Young Doubter and A Passion for the Possible: A Message to U.S. Churches

“If you are open to recognizing that the United States behaves much as other great powers have behaved, but you get your information through standard American channels, I dare you to expose yourself to the facts Griffin summarizes, facts that have been suppressed by our newspapers and magazines. If you are one who wants to be a disciple of Jesus, you will have some hard thinking to do about what American Christians are called to be and to do at this historical moment.”
-—John B. Cobb Jr, co-author of The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God

“Are we brave enough to read this nerve-wracking book, one of the most important theological texts of our time? Rooted in the longstanding belief that Christians share responsibility for shaping a more justice-loving world, Griffin makes a strong case that the real "conspiracy theory" about 9/11 is the Bush Administration's silly notion that nineteen young Arab men could have pulled it off. Griffin helps us wrestle with questions that are almost too much to bear, yet which may empower us, if we dare, to build a more truthful and, over time, more deeply moral nation and world.”---The Reverend Carter Heyward, Robbins Professor of Theology Emerita, Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and author of Saving Jesus from Those Who Are Right and God in the Balance: Christian Spirituality in Times of Terror

“A gripping account of precedents for the current global empire, from the Rome of Jesus to twentieth-century ‘false-flag’ operations. . . . His wake-up call to U.S. Christians will be evaded at our peril.”—-Catherine Keller, Professor of Theology, Drew University, and author of God and Power.

“In two earlier books, David Ray Griffin established himself as one of the foremost researchers into 9/11. This book is of immensely greater scope and importance. . . . It sees the contemporary world clearly and synoptically in an informed Christian perspective, so that it makes questions of theodicy and the roots of evil as contemporary as the events of 9/11. Even though it makes some claims and arguments I disagree with, I consider this one of the most significant and original books I have ever read.”-—Peter Dale Scott, author of Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina

"WARNING: If, like most Americans calling themselves Christian, you prefer the comfort of acquiescing in the official version of 9/11 and the imperial wars it facilitated, DROP THIS BOOK NOW. But if you are open to the grace of honest inquiry and the risk of following the historical Jesus in confronting the evils of empire, this rigorously argued book is a MUST READ.”---Ray McGovern, CIA veteran analyst now with Tell the Word, a project of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour, Washington, D.C.

"David Griffin has previously made the case for the Bush administration’s complicity in 9/11 and the cover-up of this evidence by the 9/11 Commission. Here, in this important book, he puts these shocking realities in the context of Christian theology and the challenge to the churches. In a profound exploration of the nature and history of the demonic, Griffin suggests that American empire is a culmination of human demonic alienation from God."-—Rosemary Radford Ruether, emeritus scholar, Claremont Graduate University and Claremont School of Theology

“Do American Christians want the United States to act like the New Rome, invading other countries to impose its imperial rule and its control of other peoples’ resources? That, however, is just what the US is doing, increasingly so since 9/11, explains David Griffin. In this gripping summary of evidence for the truth behind 9/11 and the 9/11 Commission report, Griffin makes a compelling case that the imperial practices of the American government have become a destructive force in the world. And he clarifies the biblical and theological basis for Christians to challenge the resurgent American imperialism that often claims divine blessing on its destructive actions.”-—Richard A. Horsley, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and the Study of Religion, University of Massachusetts, and author of Jesus and Empire: The Kingdom of God and the New World Disorder

“Compelling reading. Here is a remarkably thorough presentation of facts regarding 9/11 events. Professor Griffin sets the events of 9/11 in a historical, religious, and philosophical context that is most enlightening. Although this context is also somewhat chilling, he holds out hope in his discussion of where we can go from here. I most highly recommend this book!”---Steven E. Jones, Professor of Physics, Brigham Young University

Daniel Ellsberg requests a correction.

(The following email was forwarded to 911blogger.com, but is not addressed to 911blogger.com directly. Daniel Ellsberg has risked more as a truthteller than most of us, and so, here are his corrections regarding the Infowars story.)

Friday, July 21, 2006.

The main headline in the story by Kevin Smith and Alex Jones, Infowars.com, July 19, 2006, “Ellsberg Says Government May Have Carried Out 9/11”, is a highly misleading paraphrase of my comments and beliefs. The subheadline, “Predicts Bush Regime Will Stage Terrorist Attack to Provide Pretext for Iran, Syria invasion, and Justify Internment Camps for American People”, is a flat misquotation, which actually reverses what I said. Likewise, the corresponding statement in the second paragraph that “within days after a U.S. military strike on Iran Bush’s handlers would probably stage some type of terror attack in the West to legitimize the new war.”

Teacher under fire for his Cheney-9/11 theory

Kevin hits the mainstream, and he's under attack. We may need to organize something big to show our support. Any ideas? Please post them in the comments section:

http://edition.cnn.com/2006/US/07/21/Sept.11.prof.ap/index.html

More than 60 state lawmakers are urging the University of Wisconsin-Madison to fire an instructor who has argued that the U.S. government orchestrated the September 11 terrorist attacks.

A letter sent Thursday and signed by 52 Assembly representatives and nine state senators condemns a decision to let Kevin Barrett teach an introductory class on Islam this fall.

Who Are the Heroes?

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2006/07/who-are-heroes.html

Who are the Heroes of the 9/11 Truth Movement?

Is it Jim Fetzer, Steve Jones, David Ray Griffin, Kevin Barrett, Bob Bowman, Morgan Reynolds, Webster Tarpley, and the rest of the all-star cast of Scholars for 9/11 Truth? These folks have certainly been doing great work and getting the word out.

Is it Dylan Avery and the rest of the Loose Change crew? They have indeed made a movie which has been seen by millions on the Internet already, and are doing incredible interviews for their new edition.

Alex Jones panel on C-SPAN

DHS sent us this note;

"Apparently, according to Alex Jones today, the roundtable discussion from the LA Conference will be shown on "American Perspectives" on Wednesday at 8PM, on CSPAN.

That would be 7/26"

Please bear in mind that C-SPAN is notorious for moving things around at the last minute! As current events crop up, they adjust programming to accomodate live feeds. Last year they moved McKinney's Congressional Hearing to C-SPAN2 at the last minute due to Hurricane Katrina, (but they did play the entire session), so watch the
