A Letter Of Support From Dr. David Leifer, Senior Lecturer in Architecture, University of Sydney

On Friday 29th June John Bursill spoke by phone with a several staff members of the Faculty of Architecture, University of Sydney. The purpose of John's call was to share information and ask for opinions from appropriately qualified professionals about the compelling evidence which shows that the three sky scraper collapses in New York which occurred on the 11th September 2001 were deliberate demolitions rather than merely the unfortunate consequence of the impact of fuel-laden jet airliners.

Among those John spoke with is Dr. David Leifer, Senior Lecturer and Coordinator of the Facilities Management Program. Dr. Leifer expressed his agreement with one of the central claims of the 9/11 Truth Movement, namely that the manner in which the WTC towers collapsed, does not accord with the official explanation endorsed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of a purely gravity driven collapse initiated by structural failure.

Dr. Leifer later confirmed his views in an email to John, which we present below:

9/11 And Whats it like to be Canadian ( Reflection on Canada Day)

Canadian troops in Afghanistan as 9/11 'retribution ' O'Connor: Attack on New York killed 25 Canadians
Andrea Sands, The Edmonton Journal
Published: Sunday, January 21, 2007
EDMONTON - Canada is fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan in "retribution" for the 9/11 attacks that killed at least 3,000 people, including 25 Canadians, Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor said yesterday. Read the Whole Story at:

.
Whats my responsibility as a Canadian: For one it is my duty to determine if our troops fighting in Afghanistan are there for the right reasons. Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor part of the Harper Cabinet and a Progressive Conservative have joined forces with George Bush's war on terrorism. And it is up to Canada's citizens to determine if putting our Troops in harms way is for the right reasons. We owe it to our troops and to there friends and families. We all need to review the evidence that demands a new criminal investigation into 9/11. Albert Einstein said: “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

Another 9/11 this summer?

Does anyone have a link for information about ongoing war games? This may be crucial to foiling another 9/11.

Canadian Petition to Investigate 9/11

Sign here:
Canada must cease combat roles in Afghanistan until it independently investigates and confirms Osama Bin Laden’s complicity in the attacks of September 11, 2001

To: Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, Honourable Stéphane Dion, Leader of the Liberal Caucus, Honourable Jack Layton, Leader of the N.D.P. Caucus, Honourable Gilles Duceppe, Leader of the Bloc Québécois Caucus and Members of Parliament.

Canadian Defence Minister, Gordon O’Connor has stated that we are “fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan in “retribution” for the 9/11 attacks” (Ottawa Citizen – Jan 21, 2007 – full article here: http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/news/story.html?id=3a784a6c-a6fc-490e-bccd-62cefb82cbad )

Canada has not investigated whether there is actually evidence linking Osama Bin Laden or the Taliban to the attacks of September 11, 2001. Canada accepted the accusation against Bin Laden by the United States at face value. There has been no independent investigation on Canada’s part to confirm or reject this allegation.

dz Retires from 911Blogger.com

Effective immediately I am no longer a team member of 911Blogger.com. This decision is of my own accord, and one which I have toiled over for many many months. Reprehensor is now the lead team member of 911Blogger.com, and I hope that the members of this site will greet him warmly to this position and know that he has my utmost respect and blessing in keeping this site at the forefront of 9/11 related alternative news. While I will continue to help the remaining team members of the site with the technical side of things on the site as needed, I will no longer be involved in the day to day maintenance and moderation as I have been for almost three years now. There will undoubtedly be changes made to the site in the coming weeks as part of this transition of the site, some won't mind them, others will write it into a larger conspiracy of how this was 'setup since the beginning of the site to somehow do X or do Y'. The reality is that the site has to go through changes to facilitate my retiring from the site, and to try and reign in this website into something that is both manageable by the remaining team members and useful to the community.

I think perhaps some see this site as what it could/should be instead of what it is - criticizing how things should be done and perhaps not factoring in the realities of those that run this site. I work a full time job, I have a family, I have friends, and I have responsibilities, and 911Blogger.com has made up a large part of what I consider my responsibilities for a long time now - the same goes for Reprehensor, Somebigguy, and GeorgeWashington. I don't have endless resources, I'm not online 24/7, this site can't be everything to everyone, and expecting perfection out of anything is unrealistic - there is no grand conspiracy in any perceived failures of this website, the site just is what it is. To those who have taken it upon themselves to contribute to this site and create others which have become so useful to the movement, thank you.

ABC News: Intel Warnings Resemble Pre-9/11

Though I have paid little attention to it until now, Brian Ross' "Blotter" at ABC News is really beginning to look like a cipher for CIA leaks. He routinely makes tenuous links between otherwise unrelated events, and at every chance prints stories such as the one below, which cites "secret" sources who say another 9/11 is on the way. Normally, I would attribute stories like this to fear-mongering; however, given that Bush is a lame duck president, and given that an invasion of Iran must happen before the year of the election (2008), I take these oblique warnings very seriously. We must advocate aggressively this summer. This is Bush's last chance to stage another terror attack, and we know what a second 9/11 will do to the remnants of freedom in America.

9-11 VICTIM FAMILIES BATTLING FOR JUSTICE

9-11 VICTIM FAMILIES BATTLING FOR JUSTICE
Ellen Mariani Back in Court to Find Out Whether Judge Will Hear Her 9-11 Case

By Jerry Mazza
On June 14, in Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein’s spacious courtroom atop the Daniel Patrick Moynihan U.S. Courthouse at 500 Pearl Street in New York, a true David-versus-Goliath story played out. It involved a case that is being brought by the remaining plaintiffs who did not take the 9-11 Victim Compensation money following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Lawyers from United Air Lines, American Airlines, Boeing Corporation, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and World Trade Center Properties filled half the paneled courtroom. A packed gallery filled the other half. Among these attorneys was a smaller number of lawyers for the plaintiffs who did not take the government’s handout.

Eligibility for the Victim Compensation Fund required victims’ “physical harm or death” as a result of one of the crashes, or being the personal representative of a deceased victim. But the hook was the waiver of a claimant’s right to file a lawsuit if he or she filed for fund money.

A Podcast Interview with Cpt. Ward Boston on the USS Liberty

Counterpunch links to Electric Politics, an excellent website run by George Kenney, who resigned from the State Department in 1991 over disagreement with U.S. policy on Yugoslavia.

I don't know much about the Liberty incident and whether the interviewee is credible, but Kenney interviews the chief counsel to the Navy's Board of Inquiry on the Liberty incident.

Here, he says "I didn't speak up earlier because I was told not to."
