Daniel Hopsicker was recently the focus of an article on 9/11 in Florida. I thought I had posted a link to the story, but I can't seem to find it off hand.
In any event, Hopsicker, author of 'Mohamed Atta & the Venice Flying Circus', has posted a retort to the recent article on him. He has also released a new 15 minute video entitled 'The Secret World of 9.11: Hijackers, Heaven's Gate & 'Republican, Inc.'.
You can find both of these items on his site using the link below:
Terrorists' Hometown paper Discovers 9.11
The focus of his new video is the FBI and its representatives in San Diego, CA and their ties to 9/11 highjackers.
I mentioned earlier this month that Oliver Stone was working on a 9/11 related movie. While details are quite thin, he did make some recent comments that made the news.
Controversial director OLIVER STONE has hit out at US President GEORGE W BUSH for "misusing" his powers after the terrorist attacks on September 11th (01).
The NATURAL BORN KILLERS film-maker, who is currently preparing the first major Hollywood movie to deal with the 2001 atrocities, believes Bush is the wrong man to lead America at the moment, and he is particularly angry about the US invasion of Iraq.
Threats from Usama bin Laden were detailed in television documentaries, books and all over the Internet in scores of languages, but the intelligence community largely ignored such "open source information" until it was too late, say former intelligence agents for the military and CIA.
"Everything we needed to know to prevent 9/11 was either known to elements of the U.S. government but not shared across agency boundaries, or openly published in foreign language media we chose to ignore," said Robert Steele, a former clandestine officer who now heads Open Source Solutions Network Inc., a global provider of open source networking and analysis training.
Author of "Stop Bush Now," author Paul J. Landis' most recent book, "A Real 9/11 Commission," offers new insights into the 9/11 tragedy, while also posing new questions about President Bush, the U.S. Congress and the war in Iraq.
As discussed in "Stop Bush Now," in addition to a "President" willing to lie to Congress and the American people, we have a "President" whose loyalty is not to the US Constitution. The Constitution of Bush and his "Republican Terrorists," is the "Project for the New American Century" (PNAC). *** This constitution, not ratified by the American people, represents the motivation to introduce immoral and illegal actions as "pre-emptive strikes" and lying to justify a war. Further, this "President" who has his own constitution, needed an event like "a New Pearl harbor" to scare the American people, and Congress, so as to advance designs for PNAC objectives, Empire, USA
Bandar's successor as ambassador is Prince Turki bin Faisal, the ambassador in London for the past three years, who was head of Saudi intelligence for 24 years before that. If Bandar is Saudi Arabia's James Bond, Turki is the kingdom's George Smiley (of John Le Carre fame).
By the time the defeated Soviets slunk out of Afghanistan in February 1989, bin Laden had been elevated to hero status in Saudi Arabia. So when bin Laden asked to see Turki Aug. 2, 1990, the day Saddam Hussein invaded Iraq, he was not kept waiting. What followed was described by Turki as one of history's most expensive laughs. Bin Laden told Turki he knew the royals were thinking of inviting the U.S. Army to the kingdom to push the Iraqis out of Kuwait, but that this was not necessary as bin Laden's "Afghan Arab" fighters could do the job. Turki laughed and a furious bin Laden stormed out of his office.
Today a handful of articles popped up all over the media about a certain someone who doubts the official story of 9/11.
Were the articles about the 9/11 Families Who Fought To Create 9/11 Commission Declaring It A Failure?
Were the articles about the congressional briefing on the failures of the 9/11 commission?
Were the articles about the zogby poll showing that half of the citizens (approx. 9 million) of New York state beleive our government had prior knowledge and conciously failed to act?

C-SPAN's BookTV has informed 9/11 CitizensWatch that they will broadcast the Beyond Downing Street Town Hall meeting featuring Nafeez M. Ahmed, author of The War on Truth: 9/11, Disinformation and the Anatomy of Terrorism, on Saturday, July 30 at 8PM EST, Sunday, July 31 at 1PM EST and 1:15AM Monday, August 1st (late Sunday night).
This presentation by eminent researcher Ahmed was recorded at the American University during the Washington, D.C. Emergency Truth Convergence [www.truthemergency.us] last Saturday, July 23 from 4-5:30PM.
WASHINGTON, D.C.â€”On the first anniversary of the 9/11 Commission Report, family members and experts challenged its veracity and comprehensiveness at hearings convened by Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.) on July 22.
Congresswoman McKinney set the tone by reminding the assembled citizens and media in the stately Cannon Office Building hearing room of administrationâ€™s opposition to the commission, of the conflicts of interest among its members and of the omissions in the report. Many of the alleged hijackers are alive in Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Egypt, she said, yet the report failed to mention this. She lamented that the report did not cover the final $100,000 payment to hijacker Mohamed Atta from Saeed Sheikh or Bin Ladenâ€™s connection with the mujaheddin. Much â€œinconvenient informationâ€ was left out of the report, she said. Co-chair the 9/11 Family Steering Committee, Lorie Van Auken, whose husband died in the World Trade Center, shattered the notion that the report is an accurate account by presenting numerous cases where it is suspect, such as the three-minute discrepancy with the seismic record of the flight 93 crash and the failure to investigate the claim by the administration spokesman that there were no warnings when in fact there were many. The report somehow skipped over the FBIâ€™s thwarting of a request to search Zacorais Moussaouiâ€™s computer by editing the request and finally blocking it. According to Van Auken, the so-called Reno Wall excuse for this was unjustified and an FBI lawyer who looked into the affair had never seen a refusal for a search request such as this. Moreover, the FBI official responsible for blocking the request, David Frasca, was rewarded with a promotion and large financial bonus.
Just uploaded a new track entitled 'You Lied' from 'Away With the Fairys'. It is a 7+ minute song that covers a bunch of subjects including 9/11. It is quite an impressive song. You can check out the lyrics here, and you can download the MP3 in the topic linked above. Definitely worth the listen.
The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney's office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing--that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack--but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections.

Letters | ROVE OPENED PANDORA'S BOX ON CAUSES OF 9/11 - Philadelphia Daily News
KARL ROVE did a dumb thing when he recently said that Democrats wanted to provide therapy and understanding to the 9/11 "attackers" while Republicans prepared for war. His ignorant, smoke-screen remark has allowed the book of "Official Story of the Sept. 11 Attacks" to be reopened.
Why did the Secret Service allow Bush to remain at Booker Elementary? There was an airport five miles from the school; did they just join hands and pray that no plane was hijacked from there?
Remember the "Jersey Girls?" That's a phrase we haven't heard in a while, a reference to several New Jersey-based widows who lost their husbands in the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11. They were ordinary apolitical suburbanites, mostly with Republican leanings, who did an extraordinary thing in questioning the Administration's version of the attack and demanding that their government do so as well.
Its now been a year since that Commission finally led by former Republican New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean, and co-chaired by former Democratic Congressman Lee Hamilton, published its best-selling and novel-like report offering up an official conspiracy theory naming the Osama bin Laden run Al Qaeda as the solo perpetrators.
House Hearing on anniversary of 911 Report - Wayne Madsen
House Hearing on anniversary of 911 Report -- Representative Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) chaired a 9-hour hearing in the Cannon House Office Building on the anniversary of the release of the widely-criticized 911 Commission Report. Witnesses, including 911 family members, former intelligence officers, former diplomats, politicians, academicians, and legal experts were uniform in their contention that the 911 Commission was deeply flawed and its report failed to address why 911 occurred. A number of the Commission members had major conflicts of interest. The Executive Staff Director Phillip Zelikow is a long-time Republican activist with close ties to Condoleezza Rice and the right-wing funded Miller Institute. The Commission was also criticized for focusing more on increased authorities for intelligence and law enforcement and intelligence restructuring than on the events of 911 and past U.S. policy in the Middle East and South Asia that led up to the 911 attacks.

I get lots of email from people who want me to post articles that are not directly related to 9/11. A lot of these emails are quite valid, and important, but I do not feel they should be a part of this site's articles. I do however think having open threads for these issues is very valid.
Feel free to post information and links related to what you think is important now, no matter how it might, or might not, be tied to 9/11.
There seems to be no set criteria for dismissing information as a foolish conspiracy theory. The only prerequisite for information to be so categorize seems to be the desire to reject it. The reason for the rejection does not seem to matter. It appears that anything people do not want to believe is simply set aside as not believable.
It's time to put an end to this nonsense once and for all. It's also time dispense with the name calling and understand the dynamics of what is happening when new information is rejected. We have to deal with the resistance to any tampering with accepted "truths." And we have to find ways to convince people to seriously consider the new information, new discoveries if you will - that so many refuse, under any circumstances, to acknowledge.
Just noticed that innworldreport.net has posted their latest show. It contains a segment on the 9/11 Congressional Briefing - The 9/11 Commission Report One Year Later.
You can find the link to the video on their front page, or you can directly download the flash file here (SWF 70mb).
This is just a highlight video, not the whole thing.
EDIT: the video freezes during Paul Thompson's segment, but the audio continues. I have contacted INN to see if I might be able to get a copy of the whole thing, keep your fingers crossed.
