Got an email today from Allan letting me know that he had transcribed several speakers from the 9/11 Congressional Briefing held on July 22nd by Cynthia McKinney.
Burried Truths: The Big Issue in Scotland - Street News Service
Four years on from the attacks of 9/11, cracks are beginning to appear in the â€˜officialâ€™ version of events. A growing movement, backed by respected thinkers and political figures, is demanding an independent public enquiry into what really happened.
â€˜The most unbelievable of all the possible conspiracy theories about 9/11 is the official one about Osama bin Laden and 19 fanatic Muslim hijackers taking the government of the United States completely by surprise and getting â€˜luckyâ€™.â€Robert M Bowman doesnâ€™t mince his words.
9/11 isn't mentioned once in this article, yet it has everything to do with what we are trying to do:
Iâ€™ve never understood the idea of speaking truth to power. The truth, surely, is that in almost all countries of the world, political and economic systems are designed to benefit only the rich and powerful, at the expense of those with less money and power. This is how the world works, and I see no reason to think that the powerful donâ€™t already understand that. After all, they designed it; they maintain it.
Due to the long term lung damage the firefighters have been enduring, have they finally reached their breaking point?
A drunken probationary firefighter who is a Harvard University graduate stole a delivery truck Friday morning and crashed it into an idle movie set in Chelsea where Oliver Stone's Sept. 11 film is being shot, police and sources said.
Yet another example of how fire does not cause steel framed high rises to disintegrate:
Fire in a movie complex in Malaysia's iconic Petronas Twin Towers late Friday night triggered panic among patrons who fled screaming and coughing in the thick, acrid smoke, witnesses said. There were no reports of injuries.
The glass-and-steel Petronas Twin Towers, once the world's tallest before being upstaged by a building in Taiwan, are located in downtown Kuala Lumpur and are Malaysia's most famous landmark, symbolizing the country's economic progress.

This secret task force, which fought all the way to the Supreme Court to keeps its records and deliberations secret from the public, is for me the place where the deepest darkest secrets of both the September 11th attacks and government's awareness of Peak Oil lie buried. The task force convened just as the first 20 out of 25 wells drilled in the Caspian Basin came up dry holes. In "Crossing the Rubicon" I discuss the meager seven pages of NEPDG records released after lawsuits which confirm the group's obsession, not with oil discovery, conservation (economic stagnation) or energy substitutes, but with where the known oil was, who owned it and apparently who had to be dealt with to get it. The public report of the NEPDG told us, just four months before the 9/11 attacks:
Although this is an "alternative" 9/11 news blog, some statements in this article are perfect examples of the propaganda we've all been subjected to since 9/11 that, oddly enough, seem to coincide with the drops in Bush's approval ratings.
Usama bin Laden has been publicly silent for the longest period since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The question for U.S. intelligence: What, if anything, does it mean?
"This is the first time things have changed in years. Messages have generally come in a consistent pattern, and now they are not," Venzke said. "It is likely that these changes in messaging by Al Qaeda (search) are the result of planning and a P.R. strategy, as opposed to their computer broke."
Excellent article, using logic and common sense!!! Make sure you follow the link and read the whole article.
â€œI can state: The planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry.â€

Are we dividing and destroying the 9-11 movement?
Or are we cleaning our house of trash?
by Eric Hufschmid

Dividing or Cleaning?
Insults are bad;
exposing crime is good
It is true that when members of a group fight among themselves, they become less effective.
However, is also true that a group must clean itself of incompetent leaders and criminals.
Therefore, we need to distinguish between the disruptive fighting that can weaken a group, and the beneficial fighting that cleanses an organization of its incompetence and criminal activity.
Was 9/11 more than just an attack? Could the Bush administration have had anything to gain from the attack? Two prominent European politicians, Michael Meacher and Andreas von BÃƒÂ¼low, express their serious doubts about the official version of the 9/11 story.
I could've sworn I posted this link a month or so ago, but after getting a bunch of emails I figured it was worth re-posting as many think this news video is good stuff.
As the fourth anniversary of 9/11 approached in the year 2005, many of us were still wondering what precisely happened on that terrifyng day. What is certain, is that the official story, the â€œparty lineâ€ emanating from Washington, and faithfully repeated by Ottawa, has been glibly trotted out in the complete absence of any shred of supporting proof, while the overwhelming body of evidence pointing to the tragic events of 9/11 as having been carefully orchestrated by what some consider to be the most powerful people in the world, have been entirely ignored, and those who [attempt to]bring it to light, are either ignored in the cacaphony of hysteria and deception, or are branded â€œconspiracy theoristsâ€.
The American people have been seriously misled about the origins of the al Qaeda movement blamed for the 9/11 attacks, just as they have been seriously misled about the reasons for Americaâ€™s invasion of Iraq.
The truth is that for at least two decades the United States has engaged in energetic covert programs to secure U.S. control over the Persian Gulf, and also to open up Central Asia for development by U.S. oil companies. Americans were eager to gain access to the petroleum reserves of the Caspian Basin, which at that time were still estimated to be â€œthe largest known reserves of unexploited fuel in the planet.â€
What this Truther did takes a lot of courage.
From Greg Nixon via 911TruthAction Oct 30: "Today in Burlington at the town center next to a mall entrance, I held my six foot Sign "WAKE UP AMERICA, OUR REPUBLIC IS DEAD: 9/11 was a black op U.S. military attack." And had my first physical assault from a group of knuckleheads.
I always knew a confrontation was a real possibility, but until it happensâ€¦.. I didn't realize that this is preferable to being ignored (the usual response) This issue IS powerful and I would expect those paying attention to get emotional.
Peter Lanceâ€™s new book, Cover up: What The Government Is Still Hiding About The War On Terror, links the crash of TWA Flight 800 to 9/11. Lance maintains that Ramzi Yousef who perpetrated the 1993 WTC bombing was responsible for the bombing of TWA Flight 800 in 1996. Lance also wonders why the 9/11 Commissionâ€™s report does not report that three war games simulations were taking place. Two F-16â€™s were in the air eight minutes from the 9/11 sites.
Some Americans and people around the world are wondering more about the 9/11 attacks. Questions are being asked, information is surfacing and allegations are being made.
The â€œ9/11 Truth Movementâ€ is a phrase being used to describe a wide range of people and organizations in the U.S. and internationally who are asking these questions and digging up information that appears, on the surface, to be quite serious, if true.
Haven't had a grab bag in a while. Got a couple of site updates, and a few links to old and new 9/11 related books. Check it out, make some comments.
Jim Hoffman's 911research.wtc7.net has reached version 1.000, which I assume means they have finished their content update in preparation for their upcoming book. You can find a history of what articles have been most recently updated here. It may be worth perusing to see if anything new has been added worth noting.
If you're in the Virginia area, and would like to question Lee Hamilton on whether or not the Commission gave a "full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001", stop by Lee Chapel on November 9th. Remember, Mr. Hamilton CHALLENGED us to bring forth evidence.
Thanks to Jon Gold for the heads up.
LEXINGTON, Va., Oct. 31, 2005 - Â Lee H. Hamilton, vice chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, is scheduled to discuss fighting terrorism during a public lecture at Lee Chapel on Nov. 9.
I got an email a couple of days ago from shirtswithballs.com letting me know they are carrying 9/11 related t-shirts.
Inquiries by the 9/11 Commission and the Senate Intelligence Committee into â€œintelligence failuresâ€ have blamed intelligence officers and intelligence agencies.
Some former CIA officers and others have expressed concerns that the commissionâ€™s and the committeeâ€™s investigations of so-called intelligence failures before 9/11 and before the Iraq invasion seemed to make scapegoats of dedicated intelligence professionals.
waynemadsen.com has reported some very disturbing information about the judge assigned to Scooter Libby, recently indicted aid to Dick Cheney. Apparently he has been assigned to Judge Reggie Walton, the same judge who handled a case by Sibel Edmonds in July of 2004.
US District Judge for DC Reggie Walton has been assigned the Lewis Libby case. It is noteworthy to point out Walton's past and current links to the Republican Right and to elements in the Bush administration who have covered up important details about 911. Walton was appointed to the DC Superior Court in 1981 by Ronald Reagan. In 1989, he was appointed by George H. W. Bush as the deputy drug czar under Bill Bennett. Walton was reappointed to the DC Superior Court by the senior Bush. George W. Bush nominated Walton to the US District Court for DC in 2001. Walton was the judge who, under pressure from the Justice Department, placed a gag order on former FBI translator and whistleblower Sibel Edmonds and cleared his courtroom of the public and media in Edmonds' hearing in her case against the FBI. Edmonds brought to light important information about how the FBI failed to translate important wiretap intercepts before and after 911.
There are a lot of comments of this movie being "factual" and it portray the evidence "accurately". What is accurate and factual? The official story, or the truth?
The towers won't fall again. Downtown Manhattan streets won't be coated with ash and debris.
Producers of the first Hollywood film about Sept. 11 since the 2001 attacks have begun shooting scenes in the city, but have promised to tread carefully on sensitive ground. The film's director, Oliver Stone, won't film thousands of New Yorkers running terrified through debris-filled streets. Most of the action in the movie will be shot on a Los Angeles sound stage. And although news footage of the attack may be shown in the background, none will show the towers' collapse.
