Just got word from Jonathan Gold on the events going on today in D.C. as part of the D.C. Emergency Truth Convergence.
He said he was given a free copy of David Ray Griffin's The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions And Distortions signed by Griffin, Ray McGovern, and Paul Thompson.
He said the events in D.C. were going very well and that there were tons of presenters presenting today. He also gave word that there would be a march today from the New York Times office to the U.N. this afternoon.
Washington - Revisiting the issue that helped spur her ouster from Congress three years ago, Rep. Cynthia McÃ‚ÂKinney led a Capitol Hill hearing Friday on whether the Bush administration was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
The eight-hour hearing, timed to mark the first anniversary of the release of the Sept. 11 commission's report on the attacks, drew dozens of contrarians and conspiracy theorists who suggest President Bush purposely ignored warnings or may even have had a hand in the attack - claims participants said the commission ignored.
Today marked the one year anniversary of the release of the 9/11 Commission Report. As such two major events occurred today focused on the discussion of 9/11.
The first of these events was a day long congressional hearing hosted by Rep. Cynthia McKinney. Entitled The 9/11 Commission Report One Year Later: A Citizens' Response - Did They Get It Right?, this event hosted many family members of those that died on 9/11 as well as research experts who have struggled to find the truth surrounding the events of 9/11.

September 11 Victim Families who Fought to Create the 9/11 Commission Declare it a Failure on the First Anniversary of the 9/11 Report.
- 9/11 families join researchers to ask independent media and the foreign press for help
WASHINGTON - July 21 - On Friday, July 22, 2005, one year to the day after the release of the "9/11 Commission Report," Project Censored founder, Dr. Peter Phillips will lead a National Press Club briefing entitled "The Failure of the 9/11 Commission Report and the Mainstream Media's Disregard." The briefing will feature scores of detailed examples of the Commission's flawed findings, self-censorship, misrepresentations and conflicts of interest that call the accuracy and integrity of their entire investigation into doubt.
New Yorker Paul Isaac was a block away when the Twin Towers collapsed, watching helplessly as many of his friends perished. Today the former auxiliary fireman and communication specialist is 'a man on a mission' who says after years of researching 9/11, he is positive a massive cover-up exists to protect an inside government job.
"I don't think Bush did it, because he isn't that smart," he insists, referring to the 2001 attacks. "He's just a stupid puppet taking orders on a cell phone. I think that while individuals on both sides of the political spectrum view conspiracy theory about 9/11 as ludicrous, I think it is obvious that the government that is in place now -- that didn't even want to have a 9/11 commission -- isn't telling us the truth about 9/11. And they're not telling us the truth -- not because they want to protect the public or for national security reasons. They're not telling us the truth because they want to protect themselves from either their own belligerent incompetence or their involvement with terrorist groups that they have had in the past."
The 'Bloody Footprints' at 10 Downing Street
This article is primarily focused on the controversy surrounding 7/7, but it has a lot of 9/11 references as well.
..9/11 proved to be the catalyst for overturning long-held constitutional precedents, enacting regressive legislation (Patriot Act) and initiating a global resource war. In fact, there has been no downside to the Sept 11 attacks for Bush and Co. It almost seems like the entire tragedy was simply staged to meet the stated objectives of Bush's neocon base.
Just added another track to the 9/11 Related Music Special Feature. This track is entitled 'Immortal Technique - Bin Laden (Geniewiz Unspeakable Remix)'.
We are now up to 25+ tracks on 9/11 available, please keep submitting them, and please go check them out if you haven't.
p.s. I was asked by the submitter to mention alexjonesshows.tk, a site hosting daily recordings of Alex Jones' radio show, I figured I would oblige for his frequent music submissions :) Thanks to Dem Bruce Lee Styles for the submission!
I have purchased another ad tonight for $75, this one will be on dembloggers.com. Unfortunately the ad I placed last night has not yet been approved since the owner of the site was out of town today for his birthday (what timing eh?). Both ads are up now.
EXPERT DEBUNKS 9-11 CONSPIRACY THEORIES
This article is a write-up pretending to support the 'official' theory, while at the same time showing some of the many holes in it. The irony of most arguements against those that question 9/11 is that they are a bunch of conspiracy theorists, never realizing that the exact same thing can be said for the supporters of the official story.
Here is the intro paragraph and the headings of the subjects covered, go check it out!
ny911truth.org has dropped their first hints about activities to take place this September 11th. While their are no details posted yet, I do find the idea of picketing in front of the New York Times very alluring.
Personally I have resolved to spend 9/11 in NY to take part in the memorial service, and I am very very weary of any protesters or activists disrupting this memorial. My plans had been to take place in the memorial and then head straight to D.C. to take part in any 9/11 related activities there. With this new information from ny911truth.org I can see how a protest can take place in N.Y. without disgracing any memorial services which might be going on.
It has been widely reported that the Discovery Channel will be airing a documentary on Flight 93 which crashed in Shanksville, PA on 9/11. You can find a bunch of articles on the upcoming show which will air on 9/11 this year. Here is one for example.
In any event, a few articles have been posted today about Flight 93, so here is a quick rundown:
There are a few new details on the upcoming National Geographic 4 hour mini-series I had mentioned last week.
National Geographic Channel will examine the events before, during and after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in an upcoming four-hour series.
But unlike the numerous documentary series and reams of press and government reports that have come before, "Inside 9/11," takes a long view.
THE SEPT. 11 commission report is now a year old. Many questions about the days leading up to Sept. 11, 2001 and who should be held accountable remain unanswered.
The report was a good beginning, but it requires a follow-up investigation, with subpoena power, to address the lack of accountability for security and intelligence failures that contributed to making us so vulnerable.
Flaws in the 9/11 Commission's process included conflicts of interest, lack of transparency, questionable investigative rigor, and critical whistleblower information provided yet inexplicably left out of the report. It is time to pick up where the commission left off. Demand accountability and tell the rest of the 9/11 story.
I just heard that Paul Thompson, author of 'The Terror Timeline' and cooperativeresearch.org, will be on Air America tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. You can stream live from Air America through their site here.
He will be on 'Morning Sedition' which runs from 6am-9am EST. You can find their site, and confirmation of his appearance, at the link below as well as leave feedback afterwards:
