In trying to get our ducks in a row for an upcoming 9/11 Truth event in the Dallas area, our group has invited some other groups to set up table displays. We are not asking that these other groups endorse any particular aspect about 9/11 Truth, only that they stand for peace, justice and transparency in government. I was thrilled to hear that the local Muslim Community would be setting up a display for the day of the event. I found inspiration in an article written by Mike Ghouse which will go out to about 22,000 people.
Here is an excerpt:
The Essence of Freedom
Mike Ghouse, Dallas
The essence of freedom is our ability to question; question everything including our belief and what our government dishes out for us to believe.
Truth Action Ottawa got a great response from the public on June 11, 2009. We distributed 300 DVDs in record time and got a lot of people interested in researching 9/11 further. We're out on the street somewhere in Ottawa every 11th, so come join us! Visit http://www.truthactionottawa.com to find out where we'll be next month.

The US military conducted a training exercise in the five days before the September 11 attacks that included simulated aircraft hijackings by terrorists, according to a 9/11 Commission document recently found in the US National Archives. In one of the scenarios, implemented on September 9, terrorists hijacked a London to New York flight, planning to blow it up with explosives over New York.
The undated document, entitled "NORAD EXERCISES Hijack Summary," was part of a series of 9/11 Commission records moved to the National Archives at the start of the year. It was found there and posted to the History Commons site at Scribd by History Commons contributor paxvector in the files of the commission's Team 8, which focused on the failed emergency response on the day of the attacks. The summary appears to have been drafted by one of the commission's staffers, possibly Miles Kara, based on documents submitted by NORAD.
Law and Order SVU season finale features Nick Stahl as deranged artist who believes 9/11 "conspiracies"
I'm sure this episode has no connection to the recent Holocaust museum shootings and trail of yellow journalism that followed, but the season finale of Law and Order SVU featured actor Nick Stahl as Peter Harrison, a deranged artist whose life is transformed by 9/11. I don't have an exact transcript, but at one point in the episode it is noted that Harrison became obsessed with 9/11 conspiracy theories and anti-government ideas.
The relevant dialogue begins around 7:09 of this video.
In his controversial new book, Nick Davies argues that shadowy intelligence agencies are pumping out black propaganda to manipulate public opinion – and that the media simply swallow it wholesale
Onthe morning of 9 February 2004, The New York Times carried an exclusive and alarming story. The paper's Baghdad correspondent, Dexter Filkins, reported that US officials had obtained a 17-page letter, believed to have been written by the notorious terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi to the "inner circle" of al-Qa'ida's leadership, urging them to accept that the best way to beat US forces in Iraq was effectively to start a civil war.
The letter argued that al-Qa'ida, which is a Sunni network, should attack the Shia population of Iraq: "It is the only way to prolong the duration of the fight between the infidels and us. If we succeed in dragging them into a sectarian war, this will awaken the sleepy Sunnis."
What Is Patrick Fitzgerald Trying to Hide from the Public?
By Rory O'Connor, MediaChannel.org. Posted June 12, 2009.
Powerful prosecutor and public figure Patrick Fitzgerald has been waging a chilling private jihad aimed at "killing" a book critical of him.
Okay, so he's one of the "sexiest men alive" -- but what does Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago and Special Counsel in the CIA leak case, have against us poor, unsexy journalists? It's bad enough that Fitzie won't answer my questions: ("Rory. I just wanted to get back to you and let you know that I am going to decline to be interviewed. Thank you. Pat") It's worse that he was responsible for the jailing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who spent 85 days behind bars. Now comes word that Fitzgerald, who must have too much time on his hands now that Scooter Libby has been freed and Rod Blagojevich indicted, spent much of the last year and a half going after another journalist, Peter Lance, in an attempt to kill a new edition of Lance's investigative book Triple Cross by threatening to sue both the author and his publisher for libel.
I don't agree with Rory's statement that we think "that Mohamed’s intimate relations with the FBI and CIA are proof of government involvement in a 9/11 plot." I see it more as a history lesson of the kind of practices the U.S. Government takes part in. As Peter Dale Scott says, "one of al-Qaeda’s top trainers in terrorism and how to hijack airplanes was an operative for FBI, CIA, and the Army." - Jon
Powerful prosecutor’s efforts to suppress book virtually guarantees elevated sales

Peter Lance should be thanking Patrick Fitzgerald right now, even as the attorneys’ checks are being signed.
If it were not for the U.S. Attorney who famously prosecuted I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the former Vice President’s Chief of Staff, the re-release of Lance’s stunning tale of mishandled espionage leading up to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, might be overlooked.
