New sets of documents were released today by the NIST on the collapses of WTC 1 and 2. Their last reports were released in April and were considered drafts, however these new reports are marked as drafts as well.
The NIST is now looking for people to submit comments on their report, and I can only assume that researchers such as Jim Hoffman, Jeff King, and others will take this opportunity to point out their disagreements.
Yet another former high-ranking U.S. official doubts the official story of 9/11. Last week it was Morgan Reynolds, this week it is former assistant secretary of the treasury under president Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts.
A former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan stepped back into the political spotlight this week, expressing doubt about the official 9/11 story and claiming "if they lied to us about Ruby Ridge, Waco and weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, why should we believe them now."
There has been much activity on the Internet the last few weeks regarding the Downing Street Minutes â€” and rightfully so. Documentation proving the Bush administration manufactured intelligence in order to invade Iraq should be on the front page of every newspaper and should be the lead story on every newscast â€“ but we all know how things work (or donâ€™t work) these days. However, the strength and determination of the Internet Community has managed to keep this story from disappearing while, at the same time, applying pressure to the mainstream media.
The following email is from Marcus Ford, Professor of Humanities at Northern Arizona University. Dr. Ford is spearheading an effort to organize academics interested in helping uncover the truth about the events of September 11. If you would like to help out or learn more, please contact him at the address below. And please also forward this email to anyone or any list that you think might be relevent. - Ed.
There are now 21 of us, in the US and Canada, who are committed to looking more closely and critically at the events of 9/11 and the official account of those events. We need to triple or quadruple our numbers. I am open to suggestions as to how we can do this. Are there other sites that we can post to? Do you have colleagues at other universities who are open to this project? All ideas are welcome. I would especially welcome contacts at colleges, seminaries, and universities in Texas and at historically black colleges and universities. Please send along any and all suggestions and names of people to contact. Also, if you have concerns, I welcome those as well.
.. the Internet and talk radio has buzzed with speculation on what Larry Silverstein meant when he admitted on a September 2002 PBS documentary, 'America Rebuilds' that he and the NYFD decided to 'pull' WTC 7 on the day of the attack.
A New York Post article, '9/11 Ad by Loon Tycoon Sees gov't plot,' was an attempt to whitewash giant ads taken out in major newspapers by millionaire Jimmy Walters questioning the official story of 9/11. One of those ads highlighted the Building 7 issue and asked Silverstein about the comments he made in the PBS documentary..
Alex Jones has conducted another interview with David Ray Griffin today. You can find the download at prisonplanet.tv or the local link below.
EDIT: This is a post 9/11 roundtable discussion and is pretty good as they discuss the roundtable and what they saw as the shortcomings or differences in opinions. Worth listening to!
William Rodriguez heard a series of explosions rock the lower levels of the WTC minutes before the north tower came crashing down, establishing further evidence the building collapsed from a controlled demolition not burning jet fuel like the government contends.
His eye-witness account adds a "personal and human touch" to the growing number of critics of the official government story, which have included well-known scientists, engineers, professors and even a Labor Department economist from President Bush's first administration.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The director of the CIA says he has an "excellent idea" where Osama bin Laden is hiding, but that the United States' respect for sovereign nations makes it more difficult to capture the al Qaeda chief.
Asked whether that meant he knew where bin Laden is, Goss responded: "I have an excellent idea where he is. What's the next question?"
Of course he has an 'excellent idea where' Bin Laden is.. here is the clip where he laughs at the idea of Bush saying we were actively searching for Bin Laden:
The Secret World of Jack Abramoff: Terrorists, Torpedos, & Republican 'Muscle'
This article is about Jack Abramoff, a republican lobbyist under investigation. Apparently he has some interesting ties to the final days of 4 9/11 highjackers..
â€œThere is a weird report just a day or two after 9/11 that someone reported to the FBI that three or four of the hijackers were seen gambling on a SunCruz boat,â€ wrote a source in Miami. â€œThe FBI interviewed everyone who might have seen them, that very day by all reports.â€
If Counterintelligence receives information that contains money laundering, illegal arms sale, and illegal drug activities, directly linked to terrorist activities; and if that information involves certain nations, certain semi- legit organizations, and ties to certain lucrative or political relations in this country, then, that information is not shared with Counterterrorism, regardless of the possible severe consequences. In certain cases, frustrated FBI agents cited direct pressure by the State Department, and in other cases sensitive diplomatic relations is cited. I provided the Department of Justice Inspector General and the 9/11 Commission with detailed and specific information and evidence regarding this issue, and the names of other witnesses willing to corroborate this, and the names of certain U.S. officials involved in these transactions and activities.
This interview is a little over a month old, but it is recent enough to mention. This interview with David Ray Griffin is done by Michael Wolsey from colorado911visibility.org.
You can download the interview here:
They have done other interviews with other 9/11 researchers which they will be sending me soon, once I get them I will add them to this topic.
Eric Hufschmid created a new video recently in response to his recent appearance on Penn & Teller's show 'Bullshit'. Some of you may have seen it already, but if not you can find it on his site at hugequestions.com. The video is entitled 'Are the Criminals Frightened?'. Eric also sent word that this video is very similar to his talks during the recent 9/11 Euro-Tour.
Lets play a game.
I'll say a bunch of words over and over and over again, and you tell me if they are related.
Iraq, Terrorism, 9/11, Saddam Hussein, Al-Queida, Terrorism, WMD, 9/11, Osama bin Laden, Iraq, Terrorism, 9/11..
Then I will repeat it over and over and over again some more. Next thing you know, all of it is tied together in your brain. Psychologically you will now associate all of these issues together. This is exactly what justified the Iraq war.
Even our president associates Iraq and 9/11:
We are at war because of 9/11 attacks: Bush
FBI inspector generalâ€™s report: more evidence of government complicity in 9/11 attacks
This article is in response to the report entitled 'A Review of the FBI's Handling of Intelligence Information Related to the September 11 Attacks' released by the FBI. For those interested you can download the 328 page report here.
A report released June 9 by the FBIâ€™s Office of the Inspector General raises new questions about the role of the US government in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Everyone is asking themselves now, 'Why is the media avoiding the DSM so much?', and I ask, 'Why is the media avoiding 9/11 questions so much?'. Well, for those who missed it, here is a great cartoon on the subject!
For those who are not Senior Citizens, the reference can be made on the alleged basis that President Franklin D. Roosevelt did not warn the troops that the Japanese Navy was going to attack the naval base in Hawaii. For this purpose, an attack that was either allowed to be happened, or even made to happen by the Pentagon, CIA, et al., was going to usher a war against Iraq and other countries.
September 11, 2001, like December 7, 1941, is a date made in infamy. The problem is Iraq and President Hussein never attacked us. The official Bush Administration line was that Al Qaeda and their leader Osama bin Laden were responsible for the attack, but the Bush Administration also accused Iraq and Hussein for â€œconspiringâ€ with Al Qaeda and bin Laden to attack America, one of the many lies long since discredited.
One of the things I have repeatedly said about 9/11 is that it is sad how EVERYTHING is justified by 9/11, but yet trying to get answers about 9/11 is nearly impossible..
Here are a couple of articles about things that are justified by 9/11, things that without 9/11 would never have happened. Trying to make a list of these things is pretty tough nowadays, but I am sure each of you can think of a few things that would never have happened without being justified by 9/11.

LARRY SILVERSTONE UNDER INVESTIGATION REGARDING 911
This may be an early sign to some big upcoming news. If anyone wants to do some research and post some comments please do!
[Referring to Silverstein's 'pull' comment]
We are now treating Silverstein's admission as proof he had foreknowledge of controlled demolition explosives that were pre-wired into that building PRIOR TO 9/11; hence, his statement to the fire captain constitutes probable cause that Silverstein was a principal in an act of arson. See 18 U.S.C. 1961.
MIDDLEEAST.ORG - Washington - 15 June: MER has never before published this story, this 'conspiracy theory' if you will. Though under much pressure over the years to do so we always held back and never published anything about this 'possibility'...until today that is. But now the fact that a ranking former Bush Administration official, in fact the man who was the top government economist in the Labor Department on 11 September 2001, has now gone public saying 9/11 may have been a historic hoax and the World Trade Towers were 'most likely' destroyed by a 'controlled demolition', causes us to reconsider. This is far too important to simply dismiss at this point. At the least we conclude this story now deserves far more attention that it has gotten in recent days with nearly the entire corporate media focused on Michael Jackson and various frivolities..
This is yet another follow up to this article..
Comment on the Morgan Reynolds "Demolition" Story
Michael Ruppert weighs in on the recent comments by former Bush aide..
While very encouraging, the deeper meanings behind these statements by Morgan Reynolds have yet to be revealed. Reynolds is not an engineer or scientist, and while he is a former Bush Administration official, the practical reality is that these statements are a long, long way from criminal indictments, prosecution, trial and conviction.
Tonight is the 9-11 Roundtable on Coast to Coast AM. I am going to do my best to 'live blog' the event as it goes on. I invite anyone interested to hang out and post comments as the show goes on. I will be updating in the comments of this thread live as the show goes on, and once a recording is available I will of course post that as well.
EDIT: Recording now available here.
