Were Explosives the Source of the Seismic Signals Emitted from New York on September 11, 2001?
by Andre Rousseau
January 20, 2011
When major shocks occur at the Earth's surface or at depth, waves of different types, magnitudes and speeds may move out from the source location. Such waves can be detected by seismometers located at recording stations, and the data from the recordings can be analyzed to learn many details of the source events. Seismic signals were recorded at stations in New York and four neighboring states on September 11, 2001 during the period when the North and South Towers (WTC1 and WTC2, respectively) were struck by airliners and collapsed, as well as during the collapse of Building 7 of the WTC, which had not been hit by a plane.
The Women at Ground Zero Project
Women at Ground Zero is a powerful collection of first-person stories told by 30 female firefighters, police officers, paramedics, EMTs, and others who responded to the World Trade Center tragedy on September 11, 2001. In response to the media’s portrayal of rescue workers as “firemen, policemen, brothers,” and “our brave guys,” Northern California authors Susan Hagen and Mary Carouba pooled their credit cards and set out for Manhattan shortly after the World Trade Center attack to find and interview women rescue workers and tell their stories. Despite the fact that they had no contacts, no press credentials, and knew no one in New York City, Hagen and Carouba were determined to find these women and include them in the national conversation about the heroes of 9/11.
Greetings, Gentlepersons —
As you no doubt know, the drumbeat for war against Iran is partially based on the War on Terror: the new book Mounting Evidence lays bare its flimsy foundations. Endorsed by Sen. Mike Gravel, this popular-audience presentation is receiving very good reviews from readers. You'll see them on Amazon and at the book's website: http://www.mountingevidence.org/about-the-book.html
In shared search for the truth and a saner world —

“Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust”
Note: This is work in progress – rather than delay introducing this draft to the general public, it is deemed more effective to release these ideas they can be debated ,criticized, and hopefully converted into something useful, that can actually effect change.
Introduction and Summary:
Conspiracy Theories and Stylized Facts
Journal for Peace and Justice Studies 21.2 (Fall 2011)
ABSTRACT: In an article published in the Journal of Political Philosophy, Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule argue that the government and its allies ought to actively undermine groups that espouse conspiracy theories deemed “demonstrably false.” They propose infiltrating such groups in order to “cure” conspiracy theorists by treating their “crippled epistemology” with “cognitive diversity.” They base their proposal on an analysis of the “causes” of such conspiracy theories, which emphasizes informational and reputational cascades. Some may regard their proposal as outrageous and anti-democratic. I agree. However, in this article I merely argue that their argument is flawed in at least the following ways: (1) their account of the popularity of conspiracy theories is implausible, and (2) their proposal relies on misleading “stylized facts,” including a caricature of those who doubt official narratives and a deceptive depiction of the relevant history.

Mark Wahlberg: 9/11 revisionist hero (Men's Health)
Mark “Say Hello to Your Mother for Me” Wahlberg might play a rogue vigilante in his new movie Contraband, but his recent boasts in Men’s Journal about how he would have handled the hijackers during September 11th is over the line, according to one widow of the attacks.
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” the actor and Entourage creator told journalist Erik Hedegaard in a profile for the February issue called Mark Wahlberg Handles His Business. “There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”
Deena Burnett-Bailey, whose husband Thomas Burnett died after rushing the cockpit of Flight 93 after it was overtaken, isn’t so sure circumstances would have turned out any differently just because Marky Mark was there.

Heading Down to Watch the Underwear Bomber Hearing Tomorrow
by Kurt Haskell
Although the underwear bomber trial concluded in October with a plea deal, Umar filed a motion on December 12, 2011 to replace stand-by attorney Chambers. This motion is too little too late since the only matter left in the case is sentencing, which will occur on January 19, 2012. A copy of the hand written motion can be viewed here:

The Myth of “Isolated” Iran Following the Money in the Iran Crisis By Pepe Escobar January 17, 2012 "Tom Dispatch"
The Myth of “Isolated” Iran
Following the Money in the Iran Crisis
By Pepe Escobar
January 17, 2012 "Tom Dispatch" - - Let's start with red lines. Here it is, Washington’s ultimate red line, straight from the lion’s mouth. Only last week Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said of the Iranians, “Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No. But we know that they're trying to develop a nuclear capability. And that's what concerns us. And our red line to Iran is do not develop a nuclear weapon. That's a red line for us.”

From Dr. King's speech a year before his assassination: Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.
The verdict of the King family civil suit found US government agencies responsible for Dr. King's assassination. The King family's conclusion is that the same forces who drove the Vietnam War killed Martin in order to prevent his occupation of Washington, D.C. in the summer of 1968, and to remain until the war was ended and resources directed to end US poverty.
US overthrew Iran's democracy 1953-1979, helped Iraq invade 1980-1988, now lies for more war (and an analogy if the US were the victim of empire)
What Iran’s president said about Israel, and how US War Criminal 1% lie for war
What IAEA reports on Iran’s nuclear energy/medicine, how US War Criminal 1% lie
US constantly violates war law: arrest Obama before ‘false flag’ war on Iran
Analogy: US wars on Iraq, Iran as US criminal gangster “business”
