When Underwriters Laboratories fired me for challenging the World Trade Center (WTC) report that it helped create with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), it said “there is no evidence” that any firm performed the required fire resistance testing of the materials used to build the Twin Towers. Of course, that was a lie.
With this experience in mind, I checked to see how many times the 9/11 Commission Report used the phrase “no evidence,” and noted in particular the times the Commission claimed to have “found no evidence” or that “no evidence was uncovered.” I discovered that the phrase “no evidence” appears an amazing 63 times. An example is the dubious statement — “There is no evidence to indicate that the FAA recognized Flight 77 as a hijacking until it crashed into the Pentagon (p 455).”
Of these 63 instances, some variation of “we found no evidence” appears three dozen times. This seems to be an unusually high number of disclaimers begging ignorance, given that the Commission claims to have done “exacting research” in the production of a report that was the “fullest possible accounting of the events of September 11, 2001.”
Recently Deceased Crown Prince Sultan and his son Bandar “Bush” Epitomize Highly Questionable Saudi 9/11 Connections
News of the Saudi Crown Prince passing in the U.S. and his new successor to the post warrant a refresher on the attempts to name them in 9/11 lawsuits years ago.
ONE BIG FAMILY
Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the Crown Prince to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, died just a weeks ago in a New York hospital due to ill health. The world’s largest oil-exporting nation has quickly found an heir to the Crown Prince, a position directly under the most powerful of the King. The new Crown Prince has been named as Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, brother of the deceased Crown Prince Sultan. Both were half-brothers to the current King of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah, and both are a part of the powerful Sudairi Seven.
I was recently interviewed on a public access TV show called "Vermont Today" (for 90 minutes). We discuss an exchange of letters between four concerned citizens (including myself) and NIST. Credit for the revealing NIST correspondence goes especially to Wayne Coste of AE911Truth for drafting our letters for us, and to Jerry Carpenter for taking initiative locally.
The discussion may seem to start off a bit slow, as we were trying to get some legal analysis from a local prosecutor who is now running for Mayor of Burlington. He takes a very diplomatic position, and then excuses himself. In the later parts of the interview we discuss Cass Sunstein's paper and my critique of it, as well as "foiled terrorist plots" led by informants. Near the end I also discuss Barry Jennings. The most significant part--the only part where really new information is presented--is the discussion of NIST's response to our letters (which starts around minute 25). It is the particulars of NIST's evasions that I think are very telling.
About that FOIA request you made? Sorry, the files don't even exist. That's what the US government wants to be able to say. Forget about the transparency newly elected Pres. Obama promised.

CIA Criminal Revolving Door: CIA Officer “Albert” Involved in False Intelligence Linking Al-Qaeda to Iran, Iraq
A recent book by former FBI agent Ali Soufan shows that the same CIA officer was involved in generating intelligence that falsely linked al-Qaeda to first Iran and then Iraq. The officer was also involved in a notorious torture episode and was reprimanded by the Agency’s inspector general.
The officer, who Soufan refers to as “Fred,” but whose real first name is “Albert” according to a February 2011 Associated Press article, served at the CIA station in Jordan in 1999. During that time, al-Qaeda, aided by a collection of freelance terrorists headed by Abu Zubaidah, attempted to commit a series of attacks in the country, known as the Millennium Plot. However, the attacks were foiled by the local Jordanian intelligence service, working with the CIA and FBI.
During the investigations of the plotters, Albert drafted a series of official cables that were later withdrawn. Although the withdrawing of the cables was first mentioned in a July 2006 article by Lawrence Wright for the New Yorker, Wright did not mention what was in the cables or by whom they were drafted. The content of one of them and the drafter were first revealed upon the publication of Soufan’s book in mid-September 2011.
According to Soufan, one of the twelve withdrawn cables falsely stated that the group of terrorists later arrested for the Millennium Plot in Jordan was linked to Iran. Albert’s reasoning for this was that the group had trained in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon, an area of high activity by the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah. Therefore, the group in Jordan had to be working with Hezbollah and be backed by Iran.
A decade after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Ground Zero has been swept
clean, a memorial has been established, and new towers are rising
where the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings once stood.
Something else is rising: the voices of scientists, architects and
engineers who say the official story of the destruction of the World
Trade Center does not fit with eye witness testimony and the laws of
physics. They contend the government agency in charge of the
investigation ignored critical, explosive evidence found at the crime

Major television networks suddenly cut all coverage of the Occupy Oakland demonstration last Tuesday afternoon just as police in full riot gear began using tear-gas, flash-bang canisters and rubber bullets to disperse the gathering.
TheWeatherSpace.com was the first to report the coincidence.
"This is not usually something TWS reports on but no other 'media' outlet will," the natural disaster news and custom weather forecast office posted on its site, a weather watch and extreme weather alert service.
According to both CBS and ABC news, the helicopters overflying the event had to turn back to station to refuel.
"There was a camera on the ground for a full minute," reported The Weather Space. "Showing exploding canisters, people screaming, and gas being covered everywhere and that was shut off shortly after."
Earlier that morning, police had "raided the Occupy Oakland camp and destroyed everything the occupiers had built," blogger and protester Aaron Bady wrote in his Oakland Local blog
More people are fooled when that which is promoted is called democracy than perhaps by any other name. North Korea, for example, is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPKR. (See North Korea - Democracy Web, CIA Wolrd Factbook - North Korea, or Wikipedia - North Korea. Focus groups know this well (See How democracy turns out : Focus groups and polling or Democracy Corps - Focus Groups).
This article from Russia Today includes videos and provides a good, lengthy read on the topic.
