Poll: Obama Should Commission An Independent 9/11 Special Prosecutor Investigation?
The World Trade Center Towers, Buildings 1, 2, and 7, came straight down on 9/11 precisely into their own footprints in mere seconds at free fall, they were not toppled over by aircraft or melted by fires as claimed by the Bush administration.
NORAD has removed web link that says, "Since the tragic events of 9/11, NORAD’s role – which previously was outward-looking – now includes monitoring airspace within North America." The old link was at: http://www.norad.mil/50/nutshell.html. However, web archive has the NORAD article at: http://web.archive.org/web/20080103124933/http://www.norad.mil/50/nutshe...
Why does this matter? Because before September 11, 2001, NORAD said the following about its monitoring capabilities: "Before 9/11 NORAD said, "The Air Operations Center (AOC) (also known as the Air Defense Operations Center – ADOC) maintains constant surveillance of North American airspace to prevent overflight by hostile aircraft. It tracks over 2.5 million aircraft annually [http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/usspc-fs/cmoctrivia.htm]."
Looks like DNotice.org has hit a nerve with NORAD!
See the five articles on NORAD at www.DNotice.org for more on NORAD's monitoring capabilities on 9/11.

Geopolitics: For those interested in the bigger picture, after an apparent deal with the Russians involving two billion dollars worth of ‘aid’, the government of a Central Asia republic has insisted that a vital US airbase is to close, possibly placing the ability of the US and her allies to continue effective military operations in Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan, in serious doubt - JW
Inside US air base in Manas
By Daniel Fisher
BBC News, Manas air base
On Friday, BBC journalists were the first to get inside Manas - the last remaining US air base in Central Asia, after Kyrgyzstan announced earlier this week it was closing the base.
Manas is vital to US operations: it is both the gateway to Afghanistan for troops in the US and coalition forces, and where all the in-flight re-fuelling aircraft are based for supporting fighters in the air.
Thousands of troops including the British pass through the base every day to and from the war zone.
Thug Diplomacy - Bush Admin. Threatened the UK's "National Security" if they publish torture evidence.
"Ordering the disclosure of the US intelligence information now would have only the marginal effects of serious and lasting damage to the US-UK intelligence sharing relationship, and thus the national security of the UK …"
The letters proving the threat were provided to the UK's Channel 4, who broadcast this segment on February 5, 2009;
The Foreign Secretary David Miliband (featured in the above video) denies that it is a threat, but this lie was put to rest by MP Edward Davey, who was also in the British Parliament on February 5th (but not sampled for Channel 4's broadcast);
Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers,
I received this e-mail today with this announcement:
A new organization called "Religious Leaders for 9 /11 Truth" has been formed. A small group of charter members has posted a statement of concern and a petition for a new investigation of 9/11 at rl911truth.org. (David Ray Griffin has been serving as an advisor to this organization.)
These religious leaders---who include lay as well as professional religious leaders---have recognized the significant moral challenge posed by the discrepancy between the official account of 9/11 and extensive evidence, based on independent research, that has shown this official account to be false.
It's important to remember who forgot them because it wasn't us. - Jon

A new study by researchers at Mount Sinai Medical Center confirms the terrible truth about the long-term damage suffered by many rescue and recovery workers who responded to the World Trade Center.
The serious ill effects caused by breathing the toxic cloud that draped The Pile are, to this day, persistent and chronic among thousands of brave men and women who pitched in heroically after the terror attack.
Tests on more than 3,160 cops, construction workers and others found that more than 24% showed abnormal lung function between 2004 and 2007, down only slightly from the 28% who exhibited reduced lung function in similar examinations from 2002 to 2004.
The findings reinforce a second truth: Congress must find the will and the wherewithal to provide health care, monitoring and compensation to all those who remain sickened by exposure to WTC dust.
Yesterday, President Obama met with several 9/11 Family Members. Those that are familiar to us would be Sally Regenhard, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, Patty Casazza, and Kristen Breitweiser.
Washington Post reports:
Lorie Van Auken, a leader of September 11th Advocates, a group headed by four New Jersey women who lost their husbands in the attacks, called the meeting "impressive," saying Obama gave detailed answers to their questions and allayed many of their concerns. She said the president did not rule out some form of military commissions in the future and acknowledged shortcomings in dealing with terrorism suspects in regular criminal courts.
Obama meets families of USS Cole, Sept. 11 victims
By DARLENE SUPERVILLE, Associated Press Writer Darlene Superville, Associated Press
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama held an emotional meeting Friday with relatives of victims of the bombing of the USS Cole and the Sept. 11 attacks who are still waiting for justice to be served years after the deadly acts of terrorism.
Obama promised the roughly 40 family members who attended that the meeting would be the first of many.
Some of the victims' relatives said they welcomed Obama's gesture. Still, they aren't entirely convinced that his decision to close the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where terrorism suspects are being detained, and halt legal action on their cases is the right thing to do.
Obama has expressed concerns about the fact that detainees have been held for years without trial. He has signed an executive order to close the facility within a year while the administration reviews other options for seeing that the detainees get their day in court.
