David Ray Griffin Madison Talk DVD on the way!?

Just got off the phone with a group that recorded the David Ray Griffin speach up in Madison last week.. since apparently CSPAN has decided not to air the segment this weekend I figured it would make sense to go ahead and get my hands on a copy.

thanks to the help of this group i should have the DVD in my hands tommorrow. i will be ripping this DVD (to the best of my ability) to DiVX as soon as i get it and sharing it on this blog.. anyone with some expertise in this area feel free to send me tips or suggestions.

so in other words, keep your eyes peeled, the David Ray Griffin speech is on its way, even without CSPAN!

Well, the rumor mill has it that Karl Schwarz is writing a part 7 to his 'Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble' series, and that in it he proves definitively that the plane which hit the south tower was a 737, not a 767, which in turn proves the government has been lying.

Reading this writeup about Karl Schwarz and his new article just adds to the anticipation for this article's release.. keep your fingers crossed that his research and report live up to the hype!

here is the link and a quote to whet your appetite:

Not even our officials know what happened on 9/11

Gingrich to retract 9/11 statement
Gingrich agrees to retract statement about terrorists coming from Canada

bah.. does anyone really know anything about 9/11 out there? i mean, do a search on 'pre 9/11', 'post 9/11', 'since 9/11', etc. etc. we all hear 9/11 everyday, its the most popular phrase in the media ever, but noone knows anything about the events and the questions that remain to be answered..

at least gingrich appologized to canada, that really matters.. bah.

ACLU Challenges Government’s Use of Secrecy to Avoid Accountability in National Security Whistleblower Case
here is a follow up article from today about Sibel Edmonds' case which is being held in private.

"The Justice Department’s own Inspector General has now concluded publicly that the FBI fired Edmonds for reporting agency misconduct," said Ann Beeson, Associate Legal Director of the ACLU, who argued on behalf of Edmonds today. "Clearly the FBI is using secrecy not to protect national security but to avoid accountability for its own mistakes."

this topic will serve as a point to find 9/11 related videos and downloads..

at this point is impossible for me to try to cover every single 9/11 related video..

this will be a continual process, and will take quite a while to hash out.. this is just a begining point. please suggest other titles, please suggest alternate download links, and comments.

NOTE: Some of the material in some of these videos is contested information, and as such should only serve as a starting point of research. The owner of this site does not advocate all of the material contained in these videos but rather provides them for those intrested in the subject matter contained in them.

Not pissed about this administrations handling of 9/11 yet?

You will be after reading these articles.

Yahoo! News - Words of Truth

An article covering recent statements by Kristin Breitweiser whose husband died on 9/11 and her outright disgust with the Bush administration's handling of 9/11. This article will piss you off to no end as you read of her struggles to find 9/11 truth and the road blocks and set backs because of this administration.

Isn't it true that instead of fixing airline security, port security, mass transportation, local response, and securing loose nukes and biological components, we spent billions on starting a war with Iraq---a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11? And, instead of capturing Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, we captured Saddam Hussein in Iraq with no weapons of mass destruction? Isn't it true that because of our invasion of Iraq terrorist recruitment for Al Qaeda has soared, making us even less safe than we were before the Iraq war? Remember that we were supposed to go to war in Iraq to eliminate a real threat. Isn't it true that now because of our foreign policy in Iraq, we have only created a real threat to the world's security and ours? Isn't it true that instead of successfully prosecuting Al Qaeda terrorists and bringing them to justice, all we hear about is torturing 'enemy combatants' and detaining them indefinitely--a concept far removed from the American ideal of justice? Isn't it true that instead of opening up government to restore trust and faith, we created the Patriot Act? And, isn't it true that instead of pursuing alternative energy resources to decrease our dependency on foreign oil, we invaded oil-rich countries and passed no alternative energy legislation in the meantime?
