Monday, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak told CNN's Rick Sanchez that the US has an "obligation" to investigate whether Bush administration officials ordered torture, adding that he believes that there is already enough evidence to prosecute former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
"We have clear evidence," he said. "In our report that we sent to the United Nations, we made it clear that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld clearly authorized torture methods and he was told at that time by Alberto Mora, the legal council of the Navy, 'Mr. Secretary, what you are actual ordering here amounts to torture.' So, there we have the clear evidence that Mr. Rumsfeld knew what he was doing but, nevertheless, he ordered torture."
The Rise of Obama and the Amazing Similarities & Symbolism in the Disturbed "Land of Confusion" Music Video
OK...I have watched this video probably 30 times by now. The whole video is a huge span of symbolism, current events, and so far it looks like future event could follow.
The video starts off right from the beginning with a comet, which turns out to be "The Guy" coming out of nowhere, down from space. He hits the earth and then is enchained underground. On the surface of the earth, fighter planes are bombing oil fields, war is rampant everywhere, politicians are arguing, while the big corporate monopoly man sits in a room alone watching this all unfold on a bunch of TV screens.
I posted this under Michael Hasty's blog post and thought it deserved it's own post as well. I would hope that our movement gives serious thought to what I'm proposing here.
I resist the temptation to believe that Obama, or his Justice Department or his administration in any way shape or form will pull for another 9/11 investigation, or be pressured to do so. To expect them to do so will very likely lead to deep frustration. The country is sinking. They have their hands full with immediate problems of grave consequence. We have to become pro-active instead. I think the most effective strategy is to keep doing what we're doing AND take a lesson from David Ray Griffin's new book "9/11 Contradictions". This book is actually an effective document for numerous legal actions. Our scientific, engineering, professional pilots and architectural colleagues are providing a similar body of work that can be used in legal proceedings. We have to formulate ways that the data we are amassing can be used by the legal community to achieve our objective.
9/11 Truth – Leading People out of the Matrix
This video is dedicated to my neighbor, Greg, who woke me up to the truth about 9/11 and to all of the givers around the world who wake up others.
You don’t have to be a William Rodriguez, Steven Jones or even a Richard Gage to be a Hero in the Truth Movement. All you have to do is be willing to wake up others, including perfect strangers. It only takes a little bit of Truth to get people to question the reality that they have been fed. Give a DVD, Flyer, Info Card or a Conversation about Building 7 to a stranger and watch them come out of the matrix.
Even if they don’t wake up right away, you are planting a seed for the next person.

Although I was as happy as most Americans that Barack Obama took the oath of office last week, rather than his Republican alternative, there is a major reason that he did not get my vote in November, which went instead to Cynthia McKinney: Obama is unlikely to re-open an investigation into what really happened on September 11, 2001—an investigation that needs to happen.
According to polls, about four in ten Americans are suspicious that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks—either by deliberately ignoring intelligence that warned an attack was coming and allowing the terrorists to strike, to gain public support for the neoconservative foreign policy agenda of increasing American military power in the Middle East; or by actively coordinating the attacks themselves, for the same reason. As Time magazine, in a rare acknowledgement of the 9/11 truth movement, said: “This is not a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream political reality.”
It’s easy to understand, however, why a majority of Americans have such a hard time getting their minds around the idea that their government may have some involvement in such a horrendous crime. Americans are conditioned from an early age to think of themselves as “the good guys,” living in a “democracy”—which, however imperfect, has always been primarily motivated by the desire to advance the core national principle of “freedom,” both at home and abroad. And the actions of the government are closely monitored by a diligent “free press.”
It’s a civics class myth. Yet this myth has the emotional resonance that comes with also being at the heart of what sociologists call America’s “civil religion.” And the myth was especially encouraged among us presently living generations of Americans, the citizens of the post-World War II national security state—although there has obviously been a greater public distrust of government since the Vietnam War and Watergate. The Bush administration brought this distrust to new heights, lying about everything to genocidal effect. But still, many people want to believe that the Bush mob was just too incompetent to have pulled off a sophisticated attack like 9/11 (although non-state actors living in caves in Afghanistan, half a world away, were perfectly capable)...
Once again, a news.google.com search on "9/11 truth" brings up a new item. The Kennebec Journal bravely published a pro 9/11 truth letter.
Machiavelli wrote, "There are many who think a wise prince ought, when he has the chance, to foment astutely some enmity, so that by suppressing it he will augment his greatness."
This tactic has often been used or considered. Germany was blamed during World War I for an unprovoked attack on the "Lusitania," which was carrying arms to the British, and the Vietnam War was expanded based on a false report on Aug. 4, 1964, of an attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Operation Northwoods, a 1962 military plan to fake a Cuban attack on the U.S., proposed shooting down a civilian plane with Americans onboard.
