William Rodriguez to be Focus of HBO Special?

Last Man Out of WTC Possibly Slated for Mainstream Film Documentary

Emmy winner and documentary film maker, Pat O’Mahony, is pushing hard with HBO and others to film a story of William Rodriguez, the last man out alive of the World Trade Center and declared a national hero for saving hundreds of lives.

“William’s story needs to be told and what he has to say is a great way to lead up to the bigger story of 9/11,” said O’Mahony last week in New York, a day after receiving an Emmy for his acclaimed documentary called ‘Reporters at War.’

CBS News Takes a Stab at 9/11 'Conspiracy Theories'

March Of The Conspiracy Theorists - CBS News

McKinney has long lived on the lunatic fringe of leftist politics. Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, she claimed that President Bush was aware of "numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11," and that by doing nothing he and his cronies could "make huge profits off America's new war."
On their face, the topics of the panels were not totally ridiculous or far-fetched. After all, Rep. Curt Weldon, a Republican from Pennsylvania, has spent months informing the public about the Department of Defense program Able Danger. The intelligence gathering program may have identified Mohammed Atta and other 9/11 hijackers as threats in the months prior to the attacks, but the 9/11 Commission all but ignored the program in its final report.

Somebigguy has agreed to become a contributor to While I have only known him for a short time he has been a good silent contributor for a while, and adding him on as a poster was the next logical step.

I will continue posting topics, and checking emails and such, but due to a bunch of things going on in my personal life it is necessary to get some extra help right now.

Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11 - PDF Download

A document created from the 'Los Angeles Citizens Grand Jury' entitled Findings of Fact has been released which lists what a group of 25 citizens in Los Angeles came to find related to 9/11. It also lists their conclusions, what parts of the official story they reject, and a few demands which it beleives the government should act upon.

Here is a clip:

The official account of the events of September 11, 2001 as contained in public statements by George Bush, Richard Cheney, George Tenet, Richard Myers, Ralph Eberhart, Donald Rumsfeld, Condolezza Rice, Robert Mueller, Tony Blair, Rudolph Guiliani, Larry Silverstein, Richard Clarke, the Kean-Hamilton Commission to Investigate Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, and others, is physically impossible, untenable, contradictory, and fraudulent. It ignores vast bodies of conclusive and overwhelming evidence. It is, therefore, rejected as a propaganda fabrication designed to justify the unleashing of aggressive war in Afghanistan and Iraq, while hiding the activity of a private, extra-legal, and anti-constitutional network of officials in the United States government, high ranking military officers, and individuals within private corporations and political institutions, who actively prepared, promoted, organized, assisted, fomented, and/or passively enabled the September 11 attacks and the coverup that followed. Requests Release of 85 Video Tapes Related to Pentagon 'Crash' has submitted a request via the FOIA for 85 videos related to the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11. You can find a scan of the document request here.

While the Pentagon 'crash' remains a point of contention for some, hopefully a lot can be learned from the videos released, if it ever happens.

War Protests Sprinkled with 9/11 Truth Activists

I've been perusing all of the pictures from the multiple anti-war rallies held over the weekend. I was glad to see that some 9/11 activists showed up in different areas with signs and banners and such. I really liked the image above as the shirt Cindy is wearing and the 9/11 sign in the back really tend to fit together.

In any event, there were tons of pictures taken, and so here is a list for those who want to check them out and hunt down the 9/11 activists in the crowd.

Was the Federal Reserve Warned about 9/11?

Former Fed Analyst Turned Whistleblower Asks: Was the Federal Reserve Warned about 9/11?

“Follow the Money” is a longstanding and still-valuable guide to the fundamentals of investigating crimes. Yet four years after one of the worst crimes in human history — the events of September 11, 2001 — there are some fundamental questions relating to money flows that haven’t been asked or addressed, at least publicly.

Was Pentagon Tracking Mohamed Atta Just Days Before 9.11 Attack?

Was Pentagon Tracking Mohamed Atta Just Days Before 9.11 Attack? - Mad Cow Productions

The “official story’ about Mohamed Atta’s timeline, activities, and associates while in the U.S. is riddled with lies, misdirection and deliberate deception. Documents being destroyed by the Pentagon probably include at least a terabyte on Atta & company’s activities in Venice, Florida.
During final preparations for the Sept 11 attack, Mohamed Atta’s father was 'visiting' his terrorist ringleader son in Venice, Florida. After seeing him on television denying that his son had anything to do with the terrorist hijackings, a number of credible witnesses called the Sarasota office of the FBI to report they had seen Atta’s father in Venice with his son ten days to two weeks before the attack.

9/11 aircraft parts as a clue to their identity

9/11 aircraft parts as a clue to their identity

The proposition arrived at here is this: the 911 hijackings and damage to buildings were not the work of Arab terrorists, but appear to have been part of a black operation carried out with the cooperation of elements in the U.S. government.
As painful and heartbreaking as was the loss of innocent lives and the lingering health problems of thousands more, a most troublesome and nightmarish probability remains that so many Americans appear to be involved in the most heinous conspiracy in our country's history.

4th Anniversary - Craig Hill at St. Mark's Church - Video Download

Craig Hill gave a speech on 9/11 at the St. Mark's Church in NYC. Craig Hill has run (and is running again) for Senate in Vermont. He runs, and created a 9/11 DVD called 'Treason, Inc'.

I added in a comment by Dr. Robert Bowman to the end as well since it directly related to Hill's speech.

Upcoming Rally in NYC for WTC7 #2 Opening

During the events in NYC on 9/11 there was mention about the next major rally that will take place in NYC. The next rally will occur in November when the new WTC7 building is opened to the public. Apparently Silverstein will be there, and it will be a good time to question his 'pull' comments and the events surrounding the first WTC7. When I find out the exact dates I will be sure to update this thread.

On a side note, here is an interesting article mentioning Silverstein from today:

9/11 Widows Group Decries Pentagon Call for Closed Judiciary Hearings on Able Danger

9/11 Widows Group Decries Pentagon Call for Closed Judiciary Hearings on Able Danger

September 11th Advocates Statement
Regarding Senate Judiciary "Able Danger" Hearing
September 19, 2005

We were stunned to learn that the Pentagon is calling for the Senate hearing regarding "Able Danger" scheduled for Wednesday, September 21st, to be closed to the public.

Recall that Able Danger was the data mining operation run out of the Defense Intelligence Agency that allegedly identified four of the 9/11 hijackers one year prior to the attacks. There has been much controversy surrounding these findings and their significance cannot be overstated. This information, relating to Able Danger, changes the entire 9/11 "story" and would therefore impact many of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations. After attempting to seek the truth for four years, it would be a travesty to keep the facts surrounding this operation from the public. The insistence on secrecy by governmental agencies only makes their motives suspect and ultimately serves to keep the American public at risk.

Congressional Black Caucus to Host Sequel to Recent 9/11 Congressional Hearings

The 9/11 Omission: Did the 9/11 Commission Get it Wrong?



On September 23 and 24, Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus will host two “brain trust” panels at their annual legislative conference to be held at the Washington Convention Center, 801 Mr. Vernon Avenue, NW, Washington, DC on the topic of what was omitted from the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report, unanswered questions that remain and their inadequate recommendations which have failed to make the country safer, to address the true sponsors and causes of the attacks and to properly balance civil liberties and secrecy, security and war. The event is free and open to the public. Members of Congress, academicians and authors will present information on the road that led to 9/11, the response that followed, and the unexamined evidence and assumptions that framed the official report. Speakers will include John Cooley (author of Unholy Wars). C. William Michaels (author of No Greater Threat), Richard Falk (author of The Great Terror War), David Ray Griffin (author of 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions), Barbara Rosenberg (molecular biologist), James Bamford (author of A Pretext for War), Rep. Curt Weldon (on Able Danger), Benjamin Barber (author of Fear's Empire), Natsu Saito (author of Confronting the Crime of Silence), Athan Theoharis (author of The FBI and American Security) and James Ridgeway (author of 5 Unanswered Questions About 9/11). There will be a showing of related documentary films on Saturday.

Republicans in Congress Ask Goss to Release 9/11 CIA Report

CIA director urged to release agency 9/11 report - Reuters

Senior Republicans in Congress have joined Democrats in asking CIA director Porter Goss to declassify and release an agency report criticizing the previous director and others for lapses on terrorism ahead of the September 11 attacks, The New York Times reported on Saturday.

Citing members of Congress and their aides, the Times said that the requests were sent last week by House of Representatives and Senate Intelligence Committee members.

Another Report on 9/11 Rally in NYC


Rodriguez, the last survivor of the North Tower, told of explosions emanating from the sub-level basement of the tower, prior to the plane striking the upper floors. His account has been systematically suppressed by the government, mainstream media and the 9-11 Commission.

“They have done everything in their power to ignore my statements, which directly contradict the government story,” said Rodriguez as the crowd chanted, “Let the truth be told.”

Carol Brouillet from Questioning the War on Terrorism posted this great drawing to her blog today. It is beautiful.

More on's Pentagon Video FOIA Request has updated with new details on his FOIA request for the videos confiscated on 9/11 which may (or may not apparently) have captured Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon.

basically, we have 2 illuminating items in the 7 page maguire statement.

1) the citgo gas station video DOES NOT show flight 77 impacting the pentagon. (maguire, page 6, item 15)

2) the mystery hotel that had its security video confiscated was NOT the sheraton national hotel - it was the doubletree in arlington, VA. AND this video did not capture the impact of the flight. (maguire, page 7)

Mother Talks About Pain Felt Losing Daughter at Ground Zero

Donna Marsh-O'Connor made an impassioned plea at a recent New York 9/11 truth rally, demanding Bush be removed and calling for Americans to demand a truthful investigation into what really happened on 9/11.
"Look in the crowd," she said at the rally. "We need more suits out there. We simply need more awareness if we ever want to get anywhere."
"I swear to God I don't know if we will ever get these guys. I hold Bush and Cheney responsible 9/11 and for blocking any type of meaningful investigation. I would like to see the truth come out in my lifetime, but I just don't know."

9/11 Citizens Watch Challenges 9/11 Commission

Citizens' Watchdog Group Challenges 9/11 Commissioners to Debate; Says 9/11 Report "Worst Cover-up in History"

Today, the 9/11 Public Discourse Project, the legacy non-profit project of the 9/11 Commission, is issueing its first report on the Congressional response to the 9/11 Commission's recommendations. During a recent C-SPAN interview Vice-Chair Lee Hamilton challenged those who have evidence contrary to the findings of the 9/11 Report to bring it forward into the public arena, this his response to criticism of the 9/11 Report from callers and pressing follow-up questions from Washington Journal's co-host Brian Lamb. 9/11 CitizensWatch, the only group formed with the expressed purpose of watchdogging the work of the 9/11 Commission maintains that the Commission's work is flawed and incomplete and is prepared to bring evidence forward in a publicly televised debate or forum that effectively challenges the official narrative and "findings of facts and circumstances" of the 9/11 Report.
