SEC finds no sign 9/11 conspirators bet on attacks

http://www.aolnews.com/money/article/sec-finds-no-sign-911-conspirators-bet-on-attacks/19461094

(April 30) -- Nearly nine years, two recessions and thousands of conspiracy theories later, the U.S. government has made it official: Initial speculation after the 9/11 terrorist attacks that plotters made financial bets against airlines or other companies hurt by the events was unfounded.

The Securities and Exchange Commission began its inquiry into the matter on Sept. 12, 2001, and went on to examine trading in the U.S. and foreign securities markets that took place between Aug. 20 of that year and Sept. 11. While the agency wrapped up its investigation in May 2002, and there were references to the SEC's conclusions in the report by the federal 9/11 Commission, the findings were kept secret.

The Securities and Exchange Commission found no evidence that the conspirators behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks made financial bets against the airlines or other companies hurt by the terrorist assault.

Did Osama bin Laden Confess to the 9/11 Attacks, and Did He Die, in 2001?

by David Ray Griffin

Global Research, April 30, 2010

In 2009, I published a little book entitled Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?1 Much evidence, I showed, suggested that Osama bin Laden had died on or about December 13, 2001. (Although this book was ignored by the US press, it received major reviews in British newspapers,2 and it even provided the basis for a BBC special.3) Pointing out that the only evidence to the contrary consists of “messages from bin Laden” in the form of audiotapes and videotapes that have appeared since 2001, I devoted one chapter to an examination of the most important of these tapes, showing that none are demonstrably authentic and that some are almost certainly fakes.

Three Canadian universities will be used as venues for a speaking tour by prominent 9/11 skeptics.

Americans Richard Gage and David Ray Griffin dispute the conventional wisdom that foreign terrorists linked to al-Qaida brought down the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

They will give lectures at the University of Toronto, Carleton University and the University of Quebec in Montreal over the coming days.

Faculty members at the Montreal university told a city newspaper they are upset the institution is being used for the event.

One says it harms the school's credibility.

This tour comes right on the heels of a free-speech controversy that erupted when US pundit Ann Coulter had an appearance cancelled at the University of Ottawa.

1984 And The Allegory of the Cave By Ethan Indi

1984 And The Allegory of the Cave

By Ethan Indi

Some philosophical work is so profound as to be influential for thousands of years. Plato's The Republic is one such series of dialogues. It explains and explores the relationship between state institutions and individuals. One of the central dialogues is called the Allegory of the Cave. Socrates speaks with a fellow philosopher and proposes that what people take to be reality in total is only a partial reality or an all out illusion.

Socrates begins "let me show you in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened Behold! human beings living in an underground cave." As all like philosophy, the Allegory is layered, but it is partially about seeking individual knowledge and perspective.

In the Allegory most people are chained in the cave and forced to watch images on a cave wall. The images are cast by the controllers of the cave who use a fire behind them to produce shadows. The prisoners interpret the shadows and whatever noises are made as reality in total, for it is all they know. There are other prisoners in the cave who are unchained, but are so transfixed with the imagery on the wall that the shadows are all they see.

The Military Occupation of Our Minds

By Tom Hayden

April 29, 2010 "Huffington Post" -- As Congress weighs Afghanistan funding, the military is escalating what it calls the "war of perceptions" at home and abroad. The question is whether the American media and Congress will collaborate in the Pentagon's press strategy or retain a critical edge.

It is no accident that the Pentagon is shaping the "information battlespace" by welcoming friendly reporters and think tank hacks to beam back commentaries about the Kandahar offensive to the American people.

Nor is it accidental that the US is soft-pedaling any public criticism of its crooked crony in Kabul, Hamid Karzhai, as thousands of American soldiers are being dispatched to face bullets in his defense.

Nor is there any question that Afghan civilian casualties are being downplayed or covered-up. The agency in charge of counting the bodies, the United Nations Assistance Mission to Afghanistan, published a footnote last year admitting "there is a significant possibility that UNAMA is under-reporting civilian casualties."

Full 9/11 Story is Not Told, Says Visiting Webster U. Speaker

Full 9/11 story is not told, says visiting WU speaker

One of the principal voices of the 9/11 Truth Movement will make his way to Webster University on Thursday, April 29. Conspiracy theorist, David Ray Griffin, will present "Is the War in Afghanistan Justified by 9/11?" in the Winifred Moore Auditorium at 7 p.m.

"I hope students will come to see that the official story about 9/11, which has led to the killing of millions of Iraqis and Afghanis and otherwise so changed our world for the worse, is false," Griffin said. "Not merely possibly false, but definitely, provably false."

Dan Hellinger, a professor of political science, teaches a senior seminar on conspiracy theory and elected to invite Griffin to WU for the discussion.

"Griffin has become a leading spokesperson for the 9/11 Truth Movement, which holds that the official account of 9/11 cannot be reconciled with the facts," Hellinger said. "In the mainstream media, Griffin and the movement are often called 'conspiracy theorists,' with a clearly disparaging connotation."

Command for the 9/11 false flag attack

This article by Wayne Madsen sheds new light on the shadow dwellers and threat to our very lives.

The super-classified network that served as command and control for the 9/11 false flag attack on America

(WMR) -- Multiple U.S. intelligence sources have reported to WMR that a super-classified network with only some 70 terminals in select U.S. government locations handled the parallel command-and-control activities that permitted the 9/11 terrorist attacks to be successful.

The “above top secret” network bears the acronym “PDAS.” WMR has not yet discovered what the acronym stands for, however, the system is limited to only a few hundred people with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Special Access Program (SAP) need-to-know access, in addition to the president and vice president.
