It came to my attention that a senior correspondent, Kristin Aalen, working for a national Norwegian broadsheet - Stavanger Aftenbladet (Stavanger Evening News) - just recently printed a detailed article in the newspaper on Western covert operations sponsoring al-Qaeda after the Cold War... based almost entirely on my research in The War on Truth: 9/11, Disinformation and the Anatomy of Terrorism.
Entitled "Terrorists Working for Western Countries" (24.11.08), it even gives a country-by-country summary breakdown complete with a handy geopolitical world map of the wide arc of these operations. It's a very useful piece from a mainstream national European paper that very effectively summarises the thrust of my research into this unpalatable subject. A shame that the British press is so reticient about such issues.
(Has Israel finally jumped the shark? It's clear that the attack on the Palestinians has resulted in a massive amount of civilian casualties that can't be merely explained away by claiming that Hamas is using all of these people as human shields. The civilian populace was targeted and murdered with the same casual disregard as the militants. Schools, mosques and the infrastructure in Gaza generally, has been smashed, and the IDF has rolled out experimental weaponry to try out on the Palestinians as if they were lab rats. The Palestinians are certainly captive, but although the U.S. mainstream media is absolutely uncritical of Israel's atrocities, the web is alive with criticism. Here are 6 very useful articles that I found with a quick look on the web over the last couple of days. -- What has this got to do with 9/11? Arguably, Israel would have acted with much more restraint without the 9/11 inspired "War on Terror" to use as a justification for this ramping up of slaughter. This is the horrible legacy of the un-investigated murders of 9/11.)
1. Norman Finkelstein on Russia Today - 1.21.2009
If you only have time to watch a brief video, Finkelstein gives an excellent wrap-up of the Gaza incursion, and its inherently brutal aftermath;

Quite a few people think that - now that they are out of office - it is too late to try Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Gonzales and the rest of the boys for their crimes.
Even those who support prosecutions think it probably won't happen. For example, Dave Lindorff wrote today:
The likelihood of their being indicted and brought to trial now that they have left office is exceedingly slim.
The truth, however, is that it is a much better time to prosecute the criminals then when they were in office.
Because, as an attorney has previously pointed out:
“Best trading day in the history of Société Générale was September 11, 2001″

According to an article in The London Times today, Société Générale rogue trader Jérôme Kerviel profited enormously on the day of the 7/7 London bombings. He has also revealed how his company made huge profits on September 11th 2001, prompting some to return to questions over insider foreknowledge of both terrorist attacks.
The article states:
“The best trading day in the history of Société Générale was September 11, 2001,” he said. “At least, that’s what one of my managers told me. It seems that profits were colossal that day.
“I had a similar experience during the London attacks in July 2005.”
In an "Inexplicable" decision, the BBC has refused to broadcast an aid appeal for the victims of the Gaza conflict, this raises serious questions regarding impartiality, and whether the BBC itself is a misguided victim of an Israeli media control and censorship campaign-JW
Pressure mounts for BBC to broadcast Gaza appeal
The BBC has been accused of "being complicit in denying humanitarian aid" to the people of Gaza after refusing to broadcast an appeal for emergency funds.
Director general Mark Thompson is coming under increasing pressure to allow the screening of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) film.
He yesterday turned down an appeal from the International Development Secretary Douglas Alexander to reverse his decision not to show the appeal, fearing it could compromise the broadcaster's impartiality.

Unanswered 9/11 Miracles about To Be Answered - January 23, 2009
By Allen L Roland
Hopefully this year, Pandora's Box will be fully opened regarding the abuses of power by the Bush/Cheney administration. Eventually, their treasonous 9/11 cover-up will be revealed and the world will reel in shock and disgust.
Barack Obama must first reveal the truth of our current financial nightmare as well as the abuses of power by the Bush/Cheney administration in order to restore trust in our government. That rapidly unfolding public vetting process will eventually lead to the 9/11 cover- up and Bush and Cheney's active participation or willing countenance of the tragic events of that day.
Yesterday, Barack Obama today revoked President George W. Bush's Executive Order which makes presidential records secret for up to 12 years after leaving office!

The google search link has been disabled, and users are encouraged to use the Lycos search engine, which doesn't seem to have a problem indexing the site.
When using the site search engine, simply type your search terms(s) into the data field, like so;

The simple search runs faster than the "advanced search", so use it whenever possible.
When using Lycos, precede your search terms with "911blogger.com" (minus the quotes) and then type in your search terms, like so;

The results still won't match perfectly (the internal search engine is more accurate). Once you get to 911blogger, start hitting the blue taxonomy terms underneath the author/dateline for more related results.
Also, the "google ads" sidebar has been removed. It has been an eyesore for a long time, and slowed down the load time of the front page. To make up for the lost revenue, 911blogger will be seeking more sponsorship for the site server costs via "blogads".
