Freedom of Information (FOI) records of the Port Authority of NY and NJ dated December 19, 2007 reveal information regarding the private uniformed security contractor operating at the World Trade Center (WTC) on September 11, 2001 and copies of WTC lease agreements between Silverstein Properties and the Port Authority of NY and NJ.
I've previously written about the importance of 9/11 polls, as most people follow the herd. In other words, since polls show that the majority of people doubt the government's version of 9/11, citing the polls is very important in convincing people who are not yet aware that the official explanation makes no sense.
Well, I just read a study which says that even one dissenting voice can give people permission to think for themselves. Specifically:
The Pope had his Index of Forbidden Books. Japan had its Thought Police against subversive or dangerous ideologies. And the United States Congress and President Bush have learned nothing from those examples.
Congress is perched to enact the "Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 20007 (Act)," probably the greatest assault on free speech and association in the United States since the 1938 creation of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). Sponsored by Rep. Jane Harman, California Democrat, the bill passed the House of Representatives on Oct. 23 by a 404-6 vote under a rule suspension that curtailed debate. To borrow from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, the First Amendment should not distract Congress from doing important business. The Senate companion bill (S. 1959), sponsored by Susan Collins, Maine Republican, has encountered little opposition. Especially in an election year, senators crave every opportunity to appear tough on terrorism. Few if any care about or understand either freedom of expression or the Thought Police dangers of S. 1959. Former President John Quincy Adams presciently lamented: "Democracy has no forefathers, it looks to no posterity, it is swallowed up in the present and thinks of nothing but itself."
Denuded of euphemisms and code words, the Act aims to identify and stigmatize persons and groups who hold thoughts the government decrees correlate with homegrown terrorism, for example, opposition to the Patriot Act or the suspension of the Great Writ of habeas corpus.
The Act will inexorably culminate in a government listing of homegrown terrorists or terrorist organizations without due process; a complementary listing of books, videos, or ideas that ostensibly further "violent radicalization;" and a blacklisting of persons who have intersected with either list.
Political discourse will be chilled and needed challenges to conventional wisdom will flag. There are no better examples of sinister congressional folly.

On December 25, Audrey Hudson wrote for the Washington Times:
A commission proposed by key senators would study the emergence of homegrown terrorists and how U.S. citizens become radicalized through ideologies to commit acts of violence.
The National Commission on the Prevention of Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism is the brainchild of Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent and chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the ranking Republican member.
“The homeland security committee’s extensive and ongoing investigation into homegrown terrorism has confirmed to our committee that this is a real and growing threat to our nation’s security,” Miss Collins said.
“The attacks in London and Madrid, as well as the recent thwarted attacks in the U.S., were the work of homegrown terrorists inspired by, but not directly linked, to al Qaeda,” Miss Collins said. “But we do not yet fully understand what inspires someone to become a violent terrorist.
Senator Collins has absolutely no evidence of this and simply regurgitates the now official fairy tale version of events in regard to the attacks in London and Madrid...
Long a professor of humanities and teacher of writing, Dr. Paul W. Rea is now a full-time 9/11 researcher and writer. A member of Northern Califorinia 911Truth, Paul has participated in events such as Lifting the Fog Conference held in Berkeley. His first short book, Still Seeking the Truth about 9/11, became a well-received textbook and effective fund raiser for the movement. His next book, Back Story, will provide a comprehensive overview of current research on 9/11. Another readable popularization, this new book will appear in spring of 2008.

A major figure in the party opposing Pakistani President and likely 9/11 insider Musharraf was killed today by a lone gunman wearing an explosive vest. Some 15-20 others were killed and many more wounded. Some sources are reporting that Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility, which might actually make sense since Musharraf (along with Donald Rumsfeld) helped thousands of Al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters escape Afghanistan in November of 2001 in what Sy Hersh dubbed "the airlift of evil". We should keep a close eye on this and see who turns out to have aided this "lone gunman".
New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten is releasing a novel January 22nd which addresses the 9/11 stand down, the injection of false radar blips into air traffic controllers' screens, PNAC, the 9/11 Commission whitewash, the Anthrax attacks, and related issues.
Written in the exciting, cloak-and-dagger style of Robert Ludlum, the novel -- The Shell Game -- has a shot at educating a large segment of the American public who would otherwise remain in the dark about some aspects of 9/11.
Alten is well-aware of media censorship of 9/11 truth (for example, he agrees with this analysis, he also sent me an advance copy of the book), and is trying to break through the media blockade using his resume as bestselling author to spread his message.
