At the news conference, the Project on Government Oversight, a whistle-blower advocacy group headed by Danielle Brian , handed out a report that said government whistle-blowers are coming forward in greater numbers since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and are being greeted with harassment, dismissals, demotions, loss of security clearances and other reprisals.

C-Span Explodes 9/11 Truth Blackout! Will Broadcast David Griffin Talk Saturday

Griffin's electrifying talk was recorded Monday night, April 18th, in Madison, Wisconsin. If you missed this historic moment-- the biggest lecture hall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus overflowing with over 450 people who gave Griffin a thunderous standing ovation for charging the Bush-Cheney regime with orchestrating the 9/11 attacks--you'll have to see the video to believe it!

The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions
David Ray Griffin

Description: David Ray Griffin takes a critical look at the official 9/11 Commission Report. Professor Griffin argues that "omissions and distortions" in the report amount to a cover-up by government officials and says that the available evidence suggests that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks. Professor Griffin covers topics he says have been inadequately answered by the commission. These include questions surrounding the attack on the Pentagon, the way in which the World Trade Center towers collapsed, and the behavior of President Bush and his Secret Service detail following notification that a second plane had hit the WTC. The talk was hosted by the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth (www.mujca.com) and took place at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Includes Q&A.

Author Bio: David Ray Griffin is professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, where he taught for over 30 years (retiring in 2004). He has authored or edited over two dozen books, including "God and Religion in the Postmodern World," "Religion and Scientific Naturalism," and "The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11."

Theologist suggests Sept. 11 conspiracy

Theorists bent on exposing falsehoods in The 9/11 Commission Report maintain the attacks were a conspiracy led by the Bush administration, as UW-Madison students heard Monday at an event sponsored by the Muslim Jewish Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth.

Another Lost Opportunity

A convicted terrorist was providing U.S. officials with very specific information about a terrorist attack three months before 9/11.

Here is what i have.. it is the whole interview through about 5 minutes into the Q/A.. it is not the final version i will eventually release (after i receive and rip the VHS copy).. but it is worth going ahead and sharing.. and it will allow me not to rush on making the final full version..

so, without further ado:

Griffin CSPAN Video near completion

Welp, i have ripped a copy of the DVD i got.. i have an 80mb version that is somewhat ready to go.. i am ripping a higher res version now.. unfortunately there is a major issue with the DVD about 5 minutes into the Q/A section.. so once it is posted it will be a 'part 1' until i get another dvd or vhs copy, at which point i will post a 'part 2'.. at least the part 1 will contain through the standing ovation ;)

there are some popping noises in the audio.. so if they sound too bad i may use the mp3 copy of the audio mixed with the video.. in any event, hopefully by late tonight/early tommorrow i will be content in releasing the first part..
