ISN SECURITY WATCH (21/10/05) - A vocal Republican congressman is calling for a new investigation into what he says is a â€œwitch-huntâ€ by defense chiefs against a 9/11 intelligence whistleblower, and has threatened to resign from Congress if the matter is ignored.
Representative Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania told the US House of Representatives on Wednesday that officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) were embarked on â€œan attempt to prevent the American people from knowing the facts about how we could have preventedâ€ the 11 September 2001 attacks.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The former members of the 9/11 commission slammed the FBI on Thursday for the pace of its reforms, saying the agency has fought the changes more than expected and warning that "terrorists will not wait."
The criticism came in a report by the former commission, now called the 9/11 Public Discourse Project, released Thursday in Washington.
"Reforms are at risk from inertia and complacency," said former commission Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton.
While this may offend some, it is very possible that the 19 hijackers did exist and were trained by CIA agent Osama Bin Laden thereby leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for investigators after the attacks. These hijackers could have essentially been "hijacked" by the real perpetrators.

Two seperate, but equally important meetings that took place, regarding the preparations for 9/11, just might have more in common than we think. One is a "three-day secret terror conference" which was "monitored by the Malaysian secret police at the CIA's request". The other is a series of meetings in Pakistan between August 28-30, 2001, which were attended by Sen. Bob Graham (D), Rep. Porter Goss (Now CIA head) and Sen. John Kyl (R).

In all the furor over re-examining the September 11th attacks for inconsistencies and loose ends â€“ asking essentially, "what did George W. Bush know, and when did he know it?" â€“ it is surprising that one aspect of that day has never been explained satisfactorily: Why neither George W. Bush nor his aide Andrew Card showed any sign of surprise or urgency at the news of the attack â€“ and more importantly, why the Secret Service did not immediately rush to the President's side, to protect him from a potential attack!
This isn't really 9/11 related, but its just too unbelievable to pass up. Just realized its a little old, still worth checking out though:
Two stories posted in the last week on the CNN website, one on nukes in Iran last Wednesday, and another on nukes in North Korea on Saturday, both use the same aerial photograph of the same purported nuclear power plant!
But one is supposed to be in Iran and the other is supposed to be in North Korea!
A story posted Saturday to CNN's website suggesting that North Korea is rallying behind their leader Kim Jong Il in his latest nuclear saber-rattling makes use of a satellite photo described in the caption as "An aerial photo of North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear plant outside of Pyongyang".
26 reasons not to believe the official story. Great for opening new eyes:
This link was buried below in the comments, thought I'd give it its own thread. This could be a handy link to forward to unsuspecting people, tell them its a funny cartoon or a joke link, something like that:
Interesting article about State Sponsored Terror:
During an interview for an Australian documentary, former Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid unequivocally fingered the Indonesian authorities as the true culprits behind the 2002 Bali bombings.
Wahid said the authorities were acting at the behest of Western intelligence agencies.
Other sources used for the documentary were adamant that there were no Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups in existence that were not controlled by intelligence agencies.
A shockingly blunt article by Eric Hufschmid, kind of a long read but worth it:

Most people think I am exaggerating when I tell them that the 9-11 "truth movement" is dominated by wolves in sheep's clothing.
Those of us who expose corruption actually face two problems:
# Convincing people that our government is corrupt beyond anything they dreamed possible
# Convincing people that most of the "truth seekers" are trying to cover up the corruption, or they are rival criminals trying to take over while Bush appears vulnerable.
His actions didn't warrant firing since he didn't profit from his actions. Where does that leave Cheney?

CHICAGO -- The Justice Department ordered the FBI to reinstate a Chicago anti-terrorism agent who had faced possible dismissal for accusing the bureau of not doing enough to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks.
The FBI had suspended and was trying to fire Agent Robert G. Wright Jr. for alleged insubordination, unprofessional conduct and talking to the media without bureau approval.
The ongoing coverup concerning the secret Able Danger operation provides further evidence that the "war on terror" is a farce.
There was nothing in outward appearance to draw attention to the four-bedroom apartment at 54 Marienstrasse. Nonetheless, the attention of the intelligence services of Germany, the U.S., Israel, and other Middle Eastern and European countries had been drawn to the nondescript flat in Hamburg, Germany, as early as 1998. That was when Mohammed Atta signed the lease and he and Ramzi bin al Shibh moved in. Soon thereafter, it was identified by intelligence agencies as a target of interest. It became known as the hub of al-Qaeda's "Hamburg Cell."
I guess the only way to hold people accountable for anything is to privately finance an investigation.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 - The members of the Sept. 11 commission will sharply criticize the Bush administration and Congress this week in a new, privately financed report expected to single out the F.B.I. as having failed to act on many of the panel's recommendations to protect the nation from terrorist attack, members of the bipartisan panel and its staff said.
NEW YORK (AP) - Some state employees reaped thousands of dollars worth of â€˜â€˜bonusesâ€™â€™ for their work after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, a state official testified Monday.
Robert Ryan, who headed a state agency after being Gov. George Patakiâ€™s campaign manager, said at an Assembly committee hearing that he increased his six-figure salary and the pay of all 14 of his employees with bonuses.
David Ray Griffin is a busy guy!!! This time in New York:
Even after four years, controversy over the events of 9/11 continues to surface in the news. We recently witnessed the honest questioning of the official account by a FDNY Muslim chaplain which gave rise to a storm of intolerance and deflection of any actual and legitimate inquiry into the official account of the attacks. Even more recent was the refusal by the CIA Director, Porter Goss, to investigate people within the agency who played key roles and should have acted on important information but didnâ€™t.
911busters.com has posted a 36 minute long video of the event held in Washington D.C. July 22nd through the 24th, 2005.

Here are a list of those appearing in this great video:

A commercial for a new show called 'Boondocks' on cartoon network just came on a few minutes ago, it said something like this:
Excuse me, I have an announcement:
Jesus was black.
Regan was the devil, and
The government lied about 9/11.
The cartoon strip this new show is based on has had some interesting strips in the past, here are a few samples:
may be worth checking out.. it premiers November 6th..
Sure, everyone remembers what happened in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, but who recalls the date of the first attack on the World Trade Center?
Almost no one, in fact. For the record, the center was bombed on Feb. 26, 1993, at 12:18 p.m. Six people were killed and about a thousand more wounded.
Yesterday, some of the people who have that date etched in their brain forever talked about a horrific event, about narrow stairwells, the lack of safety lights in them, and the chaos and confusion that ensued that day.
Conference in Ireland, attend if you can:
Staff writers Robert E. Pierre and Hamil Harris report today in the Metro section of the Washington Post on Louis "Farrakhan's Message of Defiance and Unity"* in his march planned for tomorrow in Washington, D.C., commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Million Man March.
Pierre and Harris bury Farrakhan's conspiracy theory rhetoric about the government bombing the levees in New Orleans deep into the article, and they completely ignore Farrakhan's charge that the federal government was involved in 9/11. As reported by CNSNews.com's Marc Morano yesterday:
