Follow Up on Recent Demolition Comments by Former Bush Aide

Former Bush Team Member Says WTC Collapse Likely A Controlled Demolition And 'Inside Job'
This article is a follow up to this article last week. I think a lot of people would be surprised to find how many former presidential aides and government officials believe in a 9/11 cover up, and U.S. involvement. Another example would be Stanley Hilton, former senior advisor to Bob Dole. In fact there are quite a number of foreign government officials who support the idea as well, feel free to post some you are familiar with.

9/11 Truth in Higher Education: A Call to Students & Faculty

Institutions of higher education have, for the most part, failed to carefully examine the official explanation of the events of 9/11. After a brief period of introspection, university faculty and students have gone back to business as usual. And yet, we now all live in a post 9/11 world. Institutions of higher education have a special responsibility to pursue the truth wherever it leads. In this spirit, a number of colleges, universities, and seminaries have already committed themselves to taking a closer, more critical, look at the events of 9/11 and the official explanation of these events.

Summary of the 9/11 Euro-Tour and Media Coverage

I am not sure where the origional article came from, so here is the entire text.

JIMMY WALTER REOPEN 9-11 TOUR IN MADRID, VIENNA, LONDON, MANCHESTER, ROME

By Webster G. Tarpley

Rome, June 10, 2005 - The second phase of the Jimmy Walter Reopen 9/11 tour of Europe has scored new breakthroughs in Spain, Austria, Great Britain, and Italy, advancing the cause of an International Truth Commission to evaluate the official version and to investigate the reality of these attacks. The tour was made up of two teams of speakers: the red team featured Painful Questions author Eric Hufschmidt, American Free Press reporter Chris Bollyn, North Tower hero and 9/11 Hispanic Victims' Association president William Rodriguez, and philanthropist Jimmy Walter. The blue team, which subsumed 9/11 health, pollution, and environmental issues, included Kennedy assassination researcher Lisa Pease, 9/11 humanitarian volunteer Rachel Hughes, lawyer Phil Berg, filmmaker Penny Little, Canadian media critic Barrie Zwicker, and historian Webster Tarpley.

Kevin Ryan Speaks Out (Again)

Kevin Ryan wrote a very famous letter to the NIST last November about the collapses of the WTC, you can read that original letter here.. He was then fired..

Now, over half a year later he is speaking up again, you can check it out here:

Kevin Ryan - A Personal Decision

To me, the report in question represents a decision point, not just for the US, but for humanity as a whole. We’re at a point where we must decide if we will live consciously, or literally give up our entire reality for a thin veneer of lies. In the US these lies include cheap propaganda that passes for journalism, police-state measures that promise security, and mountains of debt that paint a picture of wealth. Additionally we’ve adopted many implicit self-deceptions, like the idea that we’ll always enjoy a limitless share of the world’s resources, no matter where these are located or who might disagree.

Article on Philip Zelikow and the 9/11 Commission

Essay: Outrageous Conspiracy Theories by Thomas Hansen, Ph.D., Charlottesville, Virginia
This article is a detailed commentary on Phillip Zelikow, Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission.. The article also includes a summary of a discussion between the author and Zelikow about 'conspiracy theories' surrounding 9/11.. Definitely worth reading if you aren't familiar with the amazing ties between the commission and the current administration..

Dr. Zelikow was on the National Security Council of President George H.W. Bush in the 1980s, working as an aide to National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft. Condoleeza Rice was also an aide, working with Zelikow. In 1997, Zelikow and Rice co-authored a book. Also in the 1990s, Zelikow directed the Aspen Strategy Group, which included Rice, Scowcroft, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and others. Then after President George W. Bush was elected in 2000, Zelikow was appointed to the National Security Council transition team to provide recommendations to Rice as she accepted the position of National Security Advisor to Bush. Shortly after 9/11, Zelikow was appointed to President Bush’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. In 2003, he was appointed Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, and took a leave from his position as Director of the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia.

New Lengthy Article on the WTC Collapses

I just noticed this link on whatreallyhappened.com. It is a pretty lengthy write up on the WTC collapse, and was just released today..

Why Did the Trade Center Skyscrapers Collapse? - By Morgan Reynolds

To explain the unanticipated free-fall collapses of the twin towers at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, mainstream experts (also see The American Professional Constructor, October 2004, pp. 12–18) offer a three-stage argument: 1) an airplane impact weakened each structure, 2) an intense fire thermally weakened structural components that may have suffered damage to fireproofing materials, causing buckling failures, which, in turn, 3) allowed the upper floors to pancake onto the floors below.

Another Slow Day.. Late Night Grab Bag

What a slow day for alternative 9/11 related news.. I came across a few things though..

Sign On San Diego - 9/11 hijackers operated openly here
This article discusses an FBI asset's connections with 2 high-jackers (Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid al-Midhar), and how they operated in San Diego under the FBI's nose prior to 9/11.. I noticed that Khalid al-Midhar (wikipedia) is one of the high-jackers whose identity is in question, as well as if he is actually still alive or not.. anyone else notice anything worth noting in this article?

Some Article Quotes + Open Thread

I don't see anything major in the news today. I did come across a few random quotes that caught my eye though. Also, this is an open thread so be sure to post anything I might have missed.

Chattanoogan - As The War Goes On

Everyone in America who has swallowed the Bush propaganda that we are fighting a War on Terror, rather than taking advantage of the 9/11 attacks to overthrow other nations and install puppet Democracies, regardless of how much terror and death results, is brain dead.
