DC LAUNCH: JULY 22~24, 2005: An unprecedented event series joining the power of veteran/victim groups, key truth movements and the indie media to halt the deadly coup now underway and launch a thousand Paul Reveres.
Everything we need to succeed - we now have:
- The facts and evidence of betrayal from truth movement researchers
- The support of respected leaders across the political spectrum
NIST and the WTC: "Science" at the Service of an Empire
This is the first article I have seen in response to the recently released NIST report. It was just sent to me from a 9/11 site in Finland. I have quoted a small section of it below, but it is definitely worth the read.
"Thorough, open, independent." This is how the National Institute of Standards and Technology characterizes  its 10 000-page, 750-Mb WTC draft study . The tactics is clear: to drown the weak points of the official 9/11 story in an enormous amount of redundant information. However, those who know what they are looking for can soon find their way to the critical omissions in the reports.
It seems the wind of doubt surrounding 9/11 is starting to swell more and more. As such it is pretty common to come across all sorts of articles mentioning 9/11, those articles end up in something like this, a late night grab bag.
Cui Bono is not the rock musician who fashions himself mankindâ€™s ambassador to the governments of the world. It is, rather, the question asked when an official was murdered in ancient Rome: "who benefited"? It is the question gullible minds have long forgotten to ask themselves following politically-motivated atrocities.
Inside Scoop - David Ray Griffin Interview (MP3 Audio - 12mb)
The interview was very short, and as such very little could be covered. What amazed me was the callers who called in who sounded like everyday Americans who were aware of all of the holes in the official story of 9/11. Unfortunately the pentagon took up a large part of the time. Unfortunate only in that the pentagon crash is such a small part of the story of 9/11.
All in all the interview was great, and yours truly managed to get on as the next to last caller to ramble for about 40 seconds :) I also got in a plug for flight77.info as well.
Ms. Edmonds once had the pleasure of mainstream media attention in 2002, when she claimed that the FBI translation program was penetrated by a Turkish organization that deliberately mistranslated documents related to 9â€“11, but her story was lost down our collective memory mole once the drums for the Iraq war started to beat.
Then Edmonds reappeared in early 2004 with a vengeance, claiming that her lawsuit against the FBI for wrongful termination was being suppressed to protect high-level U.S. officials from criminal prosecution around the 9â€“11 attacks. However, this time, the major media outlets paid her much less attention than they had in 2002, with most mainline reporting on her case revolving around the Bush administration's extraordinary attempts to keep her testimony in the Motley-Rice lawsuit of the 9â€“11 families suppressed. Neither The New York Times nor the Washington Post nor any other major news outlet asked the obvious question, "What is the government trying to hide?"
The 800 + pages of the Patriot Act were written prior to 9/11. So were the plans to invade both Afghanistan and Iraq. But PNAC needed 9/11 to take place. They wanted 9/11 to take place. They wrote about 9/11 (their new Pearl Harbor) taking place. What makes you think they had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11 taking place?
As a matter of fact, the book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, by Zbigniew Brzezinski, published in 1998, basically blueprints everything that is going on today as it relates to the military primacy of the US and it's domination of the world. This is not new stuff. The Bush/PNAC administration is not responding to 9/11. They are in fact carrying out a pre-planned agenda made possible by 9/11.
The two men's eye-witness testimony, never before released in America, aired as part of a Spanish 2002 television 9/11 documentary in Colombia; Total of four eye-witnesses have now surfaced, all claiming a bomb exploded in the basement of the north tower just prior to airplane strike 90 floors above. Although testimony is in the public eye, it has been completely ignored by 9/11 Commission and mainstream media.in what looks like a government cover-up aided by a media blackout.
David Ray Griffin Radio Interview on July 13th
Just got a heads up that David Ray Griffin will be on Mark Levine's radio show 'Inside Scoop' tomorrow night from 7-8pm EST. Be sure to check it out, and be sure to call in and thank Mark for having Dr. Griffin as a guest!
Special thanks to Ray from the 9/11 Truth Alliance for the heads up!
While listening to the radio today I overheard Al Franken saying that he will have Richard Clarke on tomorrow's show.
A lot of 9/11 skeptics are familiar with Clarke, his book, and his comments about 9/11. I would assume that there are a wealth of questions that could be asked. Clarke mentioned one of the wargames on 9/11 in his book as well as the dialog and details of Cheney's actions on 9/11. This may be a good opportunity to find out more details, or to ask some tough questions.
The Al Franken show comes on from 12:00-3:00pm EST and can be streamed live from airamericaradio.com.
Just added 2 new 9/11 related songs to the 9/11 Related Music Special Feature. Both of these tracks are from the recent 9/11 Truth art competition, hosted by sf911truth.org, and can be found along with other art submissions here.
Here are the names of the new tracks:
The John Kasper Band - Conspiracy of Silence
SuperPower - No Planes
I've got to say, these tracks are pretty impressive, it is great to see this type of music instead of the repetitive crap that plays on the radio today.
Free-Falling Bodies - Simple Physics Reveals The Big Lie
911blimp.net is hosting a new write-up supporting the opinion that the twin towers were not a gravitational failure.
The government and the media told us what we saw. The government told us that we had witnessed a "gravitational" collapse; what is now referred to as a "pancake collapse". According to the government's, and PBS's, and Popular Mechanics', and Scientific American's theory, airplane crashes and subsequent kerosene (like lamp oil; jet fuel is NOT exotic) fires heated steel to the point where it was weakened, which is already very difficult to believe, nevermind repeat in an experiment. According to their "pancake theory", this imagined purported (all the evidence was subsequently illegally destroyed) weakening supposedly caused part of the tower to collapse downward onto the rest of the tower, which, we've been repeatedly told, somehow resulted in a chain reaction of lower floors, sequentially, one at a time, yielding to the floors falling from above.
Second WTC Janitor Comes Forward With Eye-Witness Testimony Of 'Bomb-Like' Explosion in North Tower Basement
Jose Sanchez, while working in a sub-level 4 workshop of the north tower on 9/11, heard a bomb-like explosion, had his hair burned and rescued a co-worker who had his leg and knee broken from the basement blast taking place at the same time the jetliner struck the top floors.
Jose Sanchez, 45, of New Jersey in a never-released tape recorded statement made in early 2002 to William Rodriguez, the first WTC maintenance man to claim a bomb exploded in the north tower basement, said he heard what sounded like a "huge bomb," causing lights to flicker on and off, while he worked in a small sub-level 4 workshop.
The National Geographic Channel will air "Inside 9/11," a four-hour mini-series on the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
Currently in production, "Inside 9/11" premieres Aug. 21 and Aug. 22, at 9 p.m. EDT.
The mini-series follows the footsteps of the terrorists as they formulated their plans, infiltrated the U.S. and executed their suicide missions. Tracing the timeline that led up to the deadly attacks, "Inside 9/11" deconstructs the events of that fateful day, tracking the movements of all four terrorist teams and patching together the government response.
9-11 Truth: A Story On the Verge of Breaking Through
This article has a few links to previous articles by this journal on 9/11, definately worth the read.
The popular movement to discover and expose what really happened on September 11, 2001 continues to grow apace as more and more of the Bush Administration's lies come to light. This huge story is on the verge, finally, of breaking through the matrix and unraveling a significant section of it. Soon, the complicity or ignorance of the corporate media and the corporate political parties surrounding 9-11 could be known to many more than the millions already in the movement.
Several 9/11 activists attended with the goal of distributing 600 DVDs and audio CDs of the David Ray Griffin lecture at the University of Wisconsin which was broadcast on C-Span in April 30th and May 8th. Along with the broad array of alternative media folks who received these, we were able to give them to almost every media celebrity. In the process we had many excellent conversations with people who were aware of David Ray Griffin's work as well as others who knew of the many anomalies of the official explanation and were beginning to realize the magnitude of the scandal. I spoke to a man who was an Air Force vet who said they had the ability to track all flights 35 years ago! He knew there was no credible explanation for the failure of our air defenses so he was open to hearing the rest of the evidence. Overall, the receptiveness was very positive.
Tony Blair will on Monday reject Conservative demands for a government inquiry into last week's London bomb attacks, insisting such a move would distract from the task of catching the perpetrators.
As police and security services on Sunday continued searching for the bombers - thought to be Islamist terrorists - Downing Street said the prime minister believed an inquiry now into the outrage which killed at least 49 people would be a "ludicrous diversion." Instead, in a statement to the Commons on Monday following last week's Group of Eight summit, Mr Blair is expected to focus on the direction the government must take to ensure future terrorism is defeated.
rinf.com has hosted a 15 minute interview with William Rodriguez after his appearance in London during the 9/11 Euro-Tour. Rodriguez is a hero of 9/11 and one of the last to escape the north tower before its collapse. He was interviewed by the 9/11 Commission only to have his testimony left out. He contends that massive explosions were going off in the basement of the tower prior to the impact and 'collapse'.

After 9/11, a swift and powerful change in the law of the land
It is quite amazing how quick the patriot act was ready to propose given its length and the amazing acronym.
It was half past noon on Sept. 19, 2001, when a small phalanx of administration officials strode down a second-floor hallway in the Capitol building, headed for a secret meeting in a room nearly hidden behind a bank of elevators. Inside, they faced a group of the nation's most powerful lawmakers.
Carrying a 40-page document labeled "The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001," the officials had come to make a case for providing federal investigators with new tools to fight terrorism on American soil. They were led by then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, who wasted little time getting to the point.
This week has been quite a slow week for 9/11 related alternative news. I would assume a large part of that is due to the attacks on 7/7 in London. Since this site is focused on 9/11 news I have avoided much discussions of these recent attacks.
With that said, prisonplanet.com has a new article comparing an oddity from both 9/11 and 7/7, simulations of the attack occurring at the same time as the real attack.

BTW, I will be spending a bit of time this weekend trying to make some improvements to this site. I need some feedback on things I should change, things I should improve, etc. etc. So if you have some suggestions, or things I should look into please post them here in the comments, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In doing my browsing today I came across the name of Dr. Lueren Moret, an authority on depleted uranium, specifically an interview with her from early June. I noticed she made several comments about 9/11 in this recent article, hence my post.
She has made some pretty interesting comments about studies after 9/11 from the pentagon to ground zero on radiation and the possible use of depleted uranium. While I cannot vouch for her or her information I did find these comments interesting, and I thought I would see if others might be more familiar with her work and her associations. Besides, it is a slow day for 9/11 related news.
This is a clip from the new documentary Loose Change, which features firefighters and other eyewitnesses discussing explosions at the World Trade Center and examines the physical evidence.
