I wanted to add this to my blog. This is a few day old article that I had recently discovered and I did warn in the past of agent provocateurs interrupting peaceful protests across the U.S. (I apologize if this article had already been added by another member)...
ACLU wants probe into police-staged DNC protest

When a Jefferson County deputy unleashed pepper spray at unruly protesters on the first night of the Democratic National Convention, he did not know that his targets were undercover Denver police officers.
Now the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado is questioning whether that staged confrontation by police pretending to be violent inflamed other protesters or officers during the most intense night of the four-day event.
The protest occurred Aug. 25 at 15th Street and Court Place near Civic Center. Police ultimately arrested 106 people, the highest number of arrests in a single day during the convention.

First let me say, after years of skepticism re the Democratic Party, I am a Progressive Democrat and so my comments reflect that. Someday perhaps someone more powerful than I will be able to dismantle the two party system, and make more genuine choice possible in this country. Right now, there are two parties. For eight years George W. Bush and Dick Cheney impostered as Republicans. I have said before and will say again, they would not have fit into my party and of this I am proud. They led a band of rogues that brought this country to the brink of absolute despotism. Let the Republicans worry about that mess. I remember telling my students long ago, I didn't vote for Bill Clinton for what he would do, I voted for Bill Clinton for what he said, for the values he espoused, for the way his insistence on social justice resonated. After his election, his actions were, indeed, another matter.

Another UN official goes public on 9/11 doubts
At the Osaka 9/11 Truth International Conference on Nov. 1, 2008, The Corbett Report conducted an interview with Etsuko Chida, a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees worker who was in Kandahar on 9/11. In this stunning interview, she questions the official 9/11 conspiracy theory, raising the points that Osama and Al Qaeda were CIA founded and funded, and that it is more beneficial for the US if the boogeyman Osama is not captured.

This site is a follow-up to my original site, Flight77.info. At Flight77.info I documented the legal process to obtain the mythical video(s) showing what hit the Pentagon on 9/11. In March of 2006, Flight77.info's FOIA lawsuit forced the release of the most recent Pentagon security camera footage (although in the news media, Judicial Watch took the credit for our work), and Flight77.info also forced the release of the Double Tree hotel video footage. All of this documentation is still live at Flight77.info, although I let that site expire and someone else has kindly reposted all the old documentation...
...We requested 64 of the 85 videos. And now, 3 years after learning of their existence within page 5 of the Maguire statement - finally the first interim release of these videos is at hand. On November 3rd the FBI delivered 10 DVDs in response to our requests and persistence of my excellent FOIA attorney, Scott Hodes...

The UK's Independent Television News dedicated a short segment of a Monday broadcast to briefly explaining several core tent poles of the 9/11 truth movement.
"With new figures showing almost 150 million Web pages devoted to 9/11 conspiracies, here are the big three so-called plot holes in the official version," announced a narrator.
"One theory is that the collapse of both the twin towers was caused not by the impact of the planes and subsequent fires, but by controlled demolitions. Theorists point to the uniform crumbling of individual floors in each tower."
The narrator also mentioned a more obscure 9/11 theory: that the planes which hit the WTC towers had 'shaped charge warheads' in their nosecones.

Harman in line for post

Rep. Jane Harman has served the South Bay in Congress for 14 years.
As President-elect Obama begins staffing his administration, one name that keeps popping up on lists of potential appointees is that of Rep. Jane Harman.
Harman, who has served the South Bay in Congress for 14 of the past 16 years, has been mentioned as a candidate for several positions, including CIA director, director of national intelligence, and secretary of homeland security.
Harman has said nothing publicly to encourage such speculation, but neither has she tried to tamp it down. Late last week, her office said she would have no comment.
As the former ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, she has a deep knowledge of intelligence matters and good relations with Republicans.
9/11: More than meets the eye
Sunday 09 November 2008, The Journal Issue 13
Every so often attention is called anew to the doubts surrounding the true character of the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Recently, the report of the collapse of Building 7 represented such an occasion. Any close student of 9/11 is aware of the many serious discrepancies between the official version of what took place and the actual happenings on that fateful day in 2001. David Ray Griffin and others have analyzed and assessed these discrepancies in such an objective and compelling fashion that only wilful ignorance can maintain that the 9/11 narrative should be treated as a closed book, and that the public should move on to address the problems of the day.

Britain's security agencies and police would be given unprecedented and legally binding powers to ban the media from reporting matters of national security, under proposals being discussed in Whitehall.
The Intelligence and Security Committee, the parliamentary watchdog of the intelligence and security agencies which has a cross-party membership from both Houses, wants to press ministers to introduce legislation that would prevent news outlets from reporting stories deemed by the Government to be against the interests of national security...

After a week lecturing at Kansas State University and then in Kansas City, Missouri, I could not shake the feeling that what Kansas and Missouri need most is the equivalent of Radio Free Europe, which was so effective in spreading truth around inside Eastern Europe during the Cold War.
(Truth in advertising: during the late Sixties, I served for two years as substantive liaison officer between the RFE and Washington.)
So I was amused while still in Kansas to get a call from Mike Caddell of “Radio Free Kansas” asking me for an interview. Broadcasting from rural northeastern Kansas, Caddell does his own part in spreading truth around.
Most of his fellow Kansans are malnourished by a steady diet of extreme right-wing media gruel that helps re-elect folks like see-no-evil Republican Sen. Pat Roberts, who did Bush’s bidding in “justifying” Bush’s attack on Iraq when Roberts headed the Senate Intelligence Committee.
