Obama Promises, Including Whistleblower Protections, Disappear From Website

Amid the Obama administration's crackdown against whistleblowers, Change.gov, the 2008 website of the Obama transition team laying out the candidate's promises, has disappeared from the internet.

The Sunlight Foundation notes that it last could be viewed on June 8, which was two days after the first revelations from Edward Snowden (who had then not yet revealed himself) about the NSA's phone surveillance program. One of the promises Obama made on the website was on "whistleblower protections:"

The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment on why the page was deleted.

Pentagon: Who We're At War With Is Classified.

In a major national security speech this spring, President Obama said again and again that the U.S. is at war with “Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and their associated forces.”

So who exactly are those associated forces? It’s a secret.

At a hearing in May, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., asked the Defense Department to provide him with a current list of Al Qaeda affiliates.

The Pentagon responded – but Levin’s office told ProPublica they aren’t allowed to share it. Kathleen Long, a spokeswoman for Levin, would say only that the department’s “answer included the information requested.”

Scientists who worked with Ivins still question government's methods

By Courtney Mabeus News-Post Staff

"Scientists who worked with Bruce Ivins said it would have been impossible for him to produce the amount of spores necessary to carry out deadly anthrax attacks given the time frame and equipment available to him at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

Ivins died five years ago today as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice prepared to formally charge him with carrying out the 2001 anthrax mailings that killed five and injured 17 others in the wake of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He had worked as a top government anthrax researcher at USAMRIID since December 1980.
Ivins died from an apparent suicide as the result of acetaminophen overdose.

A National Research Council committee in 2011 said conclusions reached by the FBI about the 2001 anthrax attacks were not fully supported by science.
The committee said that “it is not possible to reach a definitive conclusion about the origins of the anthrax in letters mailed to New York City and Washington, D.C., based solely on the available scientific evidence.”

9/11 Free Fall 7/25/13: Ted Walter-- ReThink911

Ted Walter is the founder of the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now, (NYC CAN)-- an organization he started in 2009 with a group of 9/11 family members to advance the New York City ballot initiative for an independent commission to reinvestigate the 9/11 attacks. He has since served as the manager of Remember Building 7-- a TV advertising campaign aimed at exposing New Yorkers to the collapse of World Trade Center Center Building 7-- and he is now co-campaign manager for ReThink911.

NIST Notified of Discrepancies

The following email has been sent to NIST director Patrick Gallagher and Public Affairs officer Michael Newman.

This concerns many errors/omissions in the NCSTAR 1-9 Report.

****************************************************************************

Dear Mr. Newman,

On March 16, 2012 I wrote your office with an inquiry about certain errors in the NCSTAR 1-9 report. Your reply follows:

From: michael.newman@nist.gov

Date: Tue, 20 Mar 2012 16:49:50 -0400
Subject: Your Inquiry on NIST NCSTAR 1-9

Dear Mr. Cole,

Joseph Main forwarded your e-mail of March 16 to me for handling. Our researchers looked into the issue you raised and found that there is indeed an error in the drawing number cited for Figure 8-16 in NIST NCSTAR 1-9, Structural Fire Response and Probable Collapse Sequence of World Trade Center Building 7. The drawing used in Figure 8-16 was “Structural Drawing S8” rather than “Erection Drawing E12/13”. Figure 8-16 is used to locate features of the floor framing, and either drawing would serve this purpose. The differences between the two drawings are minor, involving some notes that appear in one drawing but not the other. The information of interest is the same in both drawings, and the error in the drawing number referenced does not affect any observations, findings or conclusions in the NCSTAR 1-9 report.

NIST will include an erratum to the report to indicate this correction.

Thank you for catching this error.

Sincerely,
Michael Newman
NIST Public Affairs

The Two Faux Democracies Threaten Life On Earth

Amitai Etzioni has raised an important question: “Who authorized preparations for war with China?” http://yalejournal.org/2013/06/12/who-authorized-preparations-for-war-with-china/ Etzioni says that the war plan is not the sort of contingency plan that might be on hand for an improbable event. Etzioni also reports that the Pentagon’s war plan was not ordered by, and has not been reviewed by, US civilian authorities. We are confronted with a neoconized US military out of control endangering Americans and the rest of the world.

Etzioni is correct that this is a momentous decision made by a neoconized military. China is obviously aware that Washington is preparing for war with China. If the Yale Journal knows it, China knows it. If the Chinese government is realistic, the government is aware that Washington is planning a pre-emptive nuclear attack against China. No other kind of war makes any sense from Washington’s standpoint. The “superpower” was never able to occupy Baghdad, and after 11 years of war has been defeated in Afghanistan by a few thousand lightly armed Taliban. It would be curtains for Washington to get into a conventional war with China.

Fed Economist Fired for Investigating Suspicious 9-11 Cash Transfers;

Interesting story with charts and video posted over at zero hedge.

Submitted by EB on 07/25/2013

Would you be surprised to learn that tens of billions in cold, hard cash was shuffled around just prior to 9-11 by none other than the Fed itself?  Probably not.  Here's a graph, illustrating the change in USD currency production over a ten week period prior to 9-11 compared to the average over the five years prior (which, by the way, includes the Y2K money printing orgy in the year 2000 itself, which skews the average higher):

That's right.  The average increase was $8 billion over five years, but it exploded to $18 billion just prior to that fateful day.  None other than a Federal Reserve economist discovered this and was promptly fired for his efforts to reveal the cause.  The official story involves an Argentine currency crisis.  Clearly, this required his termination.  We interviewed him, and this is his story at 2:49 in:

DOT officials trying to stop 9/11 graffiti on bridges, overpasses

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Some graffiti popping up on highways has a lot of people talking, and the state isn't too happy about how a group of vandals are trying to get their message across.

Eyewitness News explains what it all means and the lengths one state agency is going to cut down on it.

When people drive around central Connecticut, it's hard to miss some of the graffiti popping up on bridges, overpasses and road signs that says "9-11 Truth," "W-T-C" and "Building 7."

All the phrases are scrawled across overpasses on some major highways. The Connecticut Department of Transportation is fed up with graffiti and doesn't have enough resources to keep up with it.

Counter-Intelligence

Hello,

It's been a long while since I posted on 911Blogger, but I have tried to keep up with important developments on 911, courtesy of this website and others.

I recently released a new doc entitled "Counter-Intelligence" ('Shining a light on black operations'). Like my previous films it has been released online for free.

Counter-Intelligence (CI) is long. Six hours. It is divided up into five parts. Each entry can be viewed as its own entity without reference to what comes before or after. Obviously the film as a whole is best viewed in its entirety from 1-5.

The full film can be viewed here:

Due to the length I composed a trailer, which also functions as a sort of short film. It is 15 minutes long:
