I guess the only way to hold people accountable for anything is to privately finance an investigation.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 - The members of the Sept. 11 commission will sharply criticize the Bush administration and Congress this week in a new, privately financed report expected to single out the F.B.I. as having failed to act on many of the panel's recommendations to protect the nation from terrorist attack, members of the bipartisan panel and its staff said.
NEW YORK (AP) - Some state employees reaped thousands of dollars worth of â€˜â€˜bonusesâ€™â€™ for their work after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, a state official testified Monday.
Robert Ryan, who headed a state agency after being Gov. George Patakiâ€™s campaign manager, said at an Assembly committee hearing that he increased his six-figure salary and the pay of all 14 of his employees with bonuses.
David Ray Griffin is a busy guy!!! This time in New York:
Even after four years, controversy over the events of 9/11 continues to surface in the news. We recently witnessed the honest questioning of the official account by a FDNY Muslim chaplain which gave rise to a storm of intolerance and deflection of any actual and legitimate inquiry into the official account of the attacks. Even more recent was the refusal by the CIA Director, Porter Goss, to investigate people within the agency who played key roles and should have acted on important information but didnâ€™t.
911busters.com has posted a 36 minute long video of the event held in Washington D.C. July 22nd through the 24th, 2005.
You can find the download on their site here.
Here are a list of those appearing in this great video:

A commercial for a new show called 'Boondocks' on cartoon network just came on a few minutes ago, it said something like this:
Excuse me, I have an announcement:
Jesus was black.
Regan was the devil, and
The government lied about 9/11.
The cartoon strip this new show is based on has had some interesting strips in the past, here are a few samples:
may be worth checking out.. it premiers November 6th..
Sure, everyone remembers what happened in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, but who recalls the date of the first attack on the World Trade Center?
Almost no one, in fact. For the record, the center was bombed on Feb. 26, 1993, at 12:18 p.m. Six people were killed and about a thousand more wounded.
Yesterday, some of the people who have that date etched in their brain forever talked about a horrific event, about narrow stairwells, the lack of safety lights in them, and the chaos and confusion that ensued that day.
Conference in Ireland, attend if you can:
Staff writers Robert E. Pierre and Hamil Harris report today in the Metro section of the Washington Post on Louis "Farrakhan's Message of Defiance and Unity"* in his march planned for tomorrow in Washington, D.C., commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Million Man March.
Pierre and Harris bury Farrakhan's conspiracy theory rhetoric about the government bombing the levees in New Orleans deep into the article, and they completely ignore Farrakhan's charge that the federal government was involved in 9/11. As reported by CNSNews.com's Marc Morano yesterday:
If you're in the Montreal area, sign up for this one:
AN EXPOSE OF THE TRUTH AND COVER-UP BEHIND SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2001
This event will be held at the Lebanese Community Mosque, 60, Port Royal Ave., Montreal at 7:45 on Saturday, October 15th, 2005. It will feature an in-depth exposure of the lies behind 9/11, and a detailed examination of Canada's involvement and importance. The danger posed to human rights, the impending pandemic are among issues that will also be discussed.
Here's an interesting looking book available at Amazon.com:
And here is an interesting review of the book:
A straightforward, scholarly written, even handed, well researched and logically presented presentation of the many anomalys surrounding the 9/11 atrocities.
The authors keep their terms of reference very tight and do not refer to the increasingly awkward questions like: Why do the mainstream media not carry this story?
Sometimes the truth shows up where you least expect it.
Forty-eight hours before the Louis Farrakhan-led march of African Americans through the streets of Washington, D.C., the controversial minister Thursday repeated his charge that levees in New Orleans were intentionally blown up on Aug. 29, following Hurricane Katrina. He also implied that the Bush administration may have orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S.
Can someone explain to me what the statement in bold means?
The city scientist who led the effort to identify 9/11 victims said officials made sure to keep the remains of the three terrorists identified away from those of the innocents killed.
The remains of the killers were removed from the medical examiner's makeshift memorial park on the East Side and "put in another place," Robert Shaler, former head of the medical examiner's forensic unit, told the Daily News.
There have been a few new 9/11 related DVDs that have come out. I wanted to mention them as they come out so that those interested are aware, and to hopefully provide some sales for those working hard to create new methods of spreading 9/11 news.
Here are the details of the new DVD produced by Carol Brouillet:
Behind Every Terrorist - There is a Bush was a benefit show for the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9-11. It featured talented comics, great music, brilliant flash movies, spoken word, and the confessions of a 9-11 truth activist.
Just got an email from thoughtpolicy.com stating that they are going out of business. They offer a bunch of different shirts including the 9/11 related shirt shown below. They are offering 50% off of all of their merchandise, so if you haven't checked them out now would be a good time.
Emergency personnel tapes released in August contain the following statements concerning "flashes" in the world trade centers prior to their collapse:
The captain of emergency medical services said "somewhere around the middle of the world trade center there was this orange and red flash coming out ... initially it was just one flash then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode ... and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides ... as far as could see these popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger going both up and down and then all around the building" (page 15 -- pdf file; Google's web version is here)
Orwell and the 9/11 â€œIntelligence Triumphâ€ - Mujca.com
The preface of veteran Middle East CIA agent Robert Baer's 2002 book See No Evil ends on an astonishing note: "The other day a reporter friend told me that one of the highest-ranking CIA officials had said to him, off the record, that when the dust finally clears, Americans will see that September 11 was a triumph for the intelligence community, not a failure."
9/11 an intelligence triumph? If the horrific, nationally televised mass murder of almost 3,000 Americans, the destruction of our most prominent architectural monument, the successful attack on our nation's top military command center, the controlled demolition of our Constitution, and the initiation of a series of military quagmires that are destroying our economy and hence our world primacy was an â€œintelligence triumph,â€ maybe we need more intelligence failures. Patrick Fitzgerald, will you please give Baer's journalist friend the Judith Miller treatment so we can learn the identity of this top-ranking CIA official who considers 9/11 an intelligence triumph? Perhaps he could be persuaded to kindly explain to your grand jury exactly what he meant.
Check it out, from the horses mouth itself. PNAC is pulling out the Pearl Harbor comparisons again, and making yet another pathetic attempt of linking Iraq to 9/11. Jon Gold made the following clever statement that may one day be spoken at a future 9/11 trial:
"...And on the 4th Anniversary of that dreadful day, your so called, "Think Tank" dared to legitimize your actions by comparing them to the very event that inspired you in the first place. As a way to legitimize your crime. How dare you... "
Are we as a nation safer for having invaded Iraq? Was the decision to remove Saddam from power after 9-11 a step forward in the war on terror, or not? The answer is yes.
Is the answer absolutely, yes? Of course not. Wars don't work that way. Did the decision by the country to wage war on both Japan and Germany in the wake of Pearl Harbor make the U.S. safer at first? No. Even after critical successes at Midway, in North Africa and Italy, thousands of Americans still lost their lives. The war had to be won, and the cost was high precisely because our enemies knew it was going to be a fight to the death. And Americans understood that security could not be had in a piecemeal fashion given the nature of the enemies we faced.
The disastrous 9/11 attack took place a long time ago, yet its essential elements are still being debated on the Internet. While the disputes themselves and the supporting evidence make for disturbing reading, their existence continues to illustrate the gulf between a sizeable minority of American citizenry and the government of the country in which it must put its trust if civil society is to prosper. What is just as disturbing - or even moreso - is the quantity and quality of the evidence that continues to turn up. Much of it would seem to indicate that indeed there are puzzling discrepancies between what is commonly understood to be the case about 9/11 and what actually occurred.
My argument is as straightforward as it is secure and convincing: Our government was behind the terror attacks of 9-11.
To be believed, the argument requires that one think adult thoughts, have a more than casually informed view of history, and be willing to distinguish a fact from a sweet, soothing fiction.
We are told that on 9-11, 2001, we were attacked by a band of terrorist prodigies. 19 fanatical Arab wunderkinds of terror. They eluded our vast intelligence network and somehow managed to take out the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

Paths to 9/11 Understanding
I guess its not that people are afraid to talk, its that they are afraid of losing their jobs.
I work at the American society of civil engineer, an office which contributed massively at the NIST report. I work at the public relation department, so if I seem angry when I post, its because my *** is on the line; they want to shut down our department because of people like you who oppose the official version. Politicians don't want another scandal.
More war related then 9/11 related, however, you couldn't have had war without first having 9/11.
Some 60 years ago Arnold Toynbee concluded, in his monumental "Study of History," that the ultimate cause of imperial collapse was "suicidal statecraft." Sadly for George W. Bush's place in history and â€” much more important â€” ominously for America's future, that adroit phrase increasingly seems applicable to the policies pursued by the United States since the cataclysm of 9/11.
Reports from FEMA and NIST which attempt to explain how airplane impacts and the subsequent fires brought down the towers on 9/11 suffer from two major flaws. First of all, investigations by government agencies can hardly be considered independent; secondly, both documents attempt to explain the collapses based on the foregone conclusion that the airplanes impacted the towers creating a set of circumstances eventually resulting in their collapse. These reports concede that the collapses were not brought down by the impacts themselves nor the burning jet fuel, but rather by the resultant infernos which were responsible for weakening the structure of the towers causing their demise. Considering the fact that a third tower collapsed that day without suffering any airplane impact or jet fuel fire, the official story DEMANDS that plain old office fires caused the collapses, because if they didn't, the official story falls apart.
