John Feal just posted the following on Facebook:
"Rumor has it HR 847 is getting reintroduced into the senate this month. Now getting it through both the House & Senate will be a task, but the lives it will save and the pain it will ease on heroes is a no brainer. Lets go elected officials and pass HR 847"
I recently obtained a letter from my Rep. stating that he plans to support H.R. 847.
Please write to your Reps, and tell them that you want them to vote for H.R. 847.
You can find your Rep here.
I can't tell you how important this is. John mentioned yesterday that two 9/11 heroes died this week. One from cancer, and one from suicide.
Please do what you can.

How Important is Cheney's Admission that There was NEVER Any Evidence Linking Iraq and 9/11?
Cheney said in an interview on Fox News:
“On the question of whether or not Iraq was involved in 9-11, there was never any evidence to prove that,” he told the Fox host. “There was “some reporting early on … but that was never borne out… [President] George [Bush] … did say and did testify that there was an ongoing relationship between al-Qaeda and Iraq, but no proof that Iraq was involved in 9-11.”
How important is Cheney's admission?
Well, 5 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Donald Rumsfeld said "my interest is to hit Saddam".
Former CIA station chief challenges claims that torture thwarted terror attacks By Larisa Alexandrovna June 2, 2009
By Larisa Alexandrovna - June 2, 2009
Two current CIA officers agree
Milton Bearden, a former Central Intelligence Agency Pakistan station chief who served at the agency for three decades, says claims that the Bush administration’s so-called enhanced interrogation techniques saved American lives are likely false.
“Chief Engineer” Hyman Brown

Colorado 9-11 Visibility
While introducing an interview that appeared on NBC-TV on September 11, 2001, Tom Brokaw referred to Hyman Brown as the “architect” of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers.[i]
Hyman Brown was not the architect of the Twin Towers.
Dr. Steven Jones presents important features from the paper, "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe"
This talk is powerful and challenges the un-peer reviewed science of NIST, as that agency of the government tries to explain the collapse of building 7 during the 9/11 event.
Leslie Gelb, who was the President of the Council on Foreign Relations for over a decade was at the LA Library in early April to speak about a foreign policy based on common sense. Jeremy Rothe-Kushel, of WeAreChangeLA was on hand to clarify some crucial matters about terrorism. Gelb didn't desire to clarify factual matters after pointing out that Iranians are Persians not Arabs, and chose to dismiss Rothe-Kushel by saying that they must agree to disagree. Rothe-Kushel, while being asked to leave, reminded Gelb that there was such a thing as facts and that ideas have power.
Today on C-SPAN, a caller asked a question about the presence of thermite in the World Trade Center dust and its implications for American foreign policy. I wrote the entire program up as an entry for a diary on OpEdNews. The last graph contains the 9-11 question.
New Middle East war on the horizon, says foreign policy expert
By Peter Duveen
PETER'S NEW YORK, Monday, June 1, 2009--In a revealing and informative interview, journalist and foreign policy expert Arnaud de Borchgrave said today there is no relief in sight for what ails the Israelis and the Palestinians, and that a war involving the two parties was all but inevitable. He also said Iran was close to obtaining a nuclear weapon, but that military action against that country by the United States or Israel was not a realistic option.
How can that be? I thought, "The Bush administration put relentless pressure on interrogators to use harsh methods on detainees in part to find evidence of cooperation between al Qaida and the late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime." Tenet once said that he would not be the "Fall Guy." Maybe now would be a good time for him to nail Cheney to the wall. - Jon
Waterboarding was ‘well done,’ Cheney says

On Iraq and 9/11: ‘That’s not something I made up’
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is usually very careful at choosing his words.
Perhaps not so today. In a speech Monday at the National Press Club, continuing along familiar themes of terrorism, Guantanamo and his hatred for The New York Times, Cheney spoke defensively of the administration’s practice of water-boarding detainees.
