Donna Marsh O'Connor spoke at the rally at the UN on 9/11/2005. Her daughter died on 9/11 in the 2nd tower. She has written a few articles in the past for Project for the OLD American Century. She also spoke at the church later in the evening. I hope you guys watch this and can appreciate her compassion and frustration.
Just got an email from Doug about a showing they had at Northern Arizona University and thought it was worth sharing. This is a prime example of what each of us should be doing.
Last night at Northern Arizona University, we showed David Griffin's Madison Wisconsin lecture to an overflowing of 150 (in a room that seats 91). A local bookstore owner came with 30 copies of David's books, which sold out immediately and she has ordered more. Many students asked for copies of the CD and took a list of websites that I had prepared. After the lecture, the discussion was very measured and concerned. Now there is talk of another showing in a couple of weeks in an even bigger venue and with a faculty panel. All and all, I would say it was very successful.
Flight77.info has posted a set of the 11 documents recently filed in response to the government's rejection of their FOIA request to release the Pentagon crash footage confiscated on 9/11.
You may recall that their FOIA request was rejected saying that the release of the footage of Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon would affect their 'shock and awe' tactics to be used against Zacarias Moussaoui in his sentencing phase. I recall now that this same comment was initially used to reject the FOIA request by the NY Times to release the 9/11 FDNY tapes a few months back, but was later overturned.
While I am pretty disappointed that the media was largely quiet and complicit again this year in covering up the questions and lies surrounding 9/11, there were a few articles written which at least strayed from that standard line.
It seems that this year there were many more articles written that question the failures of the Bush administration to prevent 9/11 as well as his policies after 9/11. It almost seems like a gradual awakening of some press that realize that at the very least the Bush administration didn't do everything it could prior to 9/11 and that since 9/11 it has been used to enact numerous failed policies.
It is now two days until the 4th anniversary of 9/11, two days from the anniversary of arguably the turning point of our lifetimes. This year many different events will be held in remembrance of 9/11 from the now standard memorial held at ground zero with a moment of silence for each time that a plane crashed, to a pro-military march put on by Donald Rumsfeld, to numerous groups of people demanding accountability and asking questions about what really happened on 9/11.
I personally will be in NYC, in part to grieve for those that died on 9/11, and in part to show my support and document all of those that are questioning 9/11, something which I, like many others, have dedicated over the last year of my life to.
"When the U.S. president travels around a large country like America, halls are prepared along his route, equipped with means of communications, such as telephones, videos, and so on, so he can talk to his joint command, his residence, and with the White House, without fear of being tapped. Such a hall was prepared at the kindergarten. Bush calls Rice and says: 'I have just seen on the secure video-screen that the first plane went into the first tower.' Then he entered the kindergarten, and did not appear to be agitated.
Dutch television, prime time news cast, officially declares it *almost certain* the Bush presidency and U.S. Government knew about 911 beforehand and conspired to allow the terrorist strike, using it as a pretext for going to war and spread U.S. political power abroad.
Sheik Omran's decision to use the paper's September edition to convince Australian Muslims that 9/11 was a US-inspired conspiracy is likely to further anger moderate Muslims, who last month urged the cleric to tone down his rhetoric.
The newspaper devotes a feature to supporting claims made by a US author, David Ray Griffin, that a plane never crashed into the Pentagon and that the story was an elaborate hoax by the US.
The feature says: "The hole created in the (Pentagon) facade was not big enough to fit the nose of a plane let alone an entire (Boeing) 757 -- the question is how could such a big airplane have created such a small hole?"
Each of these prominent leaders now claims that there are serious problems with the official government story of 9/11. Some of these highly respected individuals even believe that 9/11 may have been an inside job. It can be very uncomfortable to even consider the possibility that certain individuals within government were involved either in allowing the attacks to happen, or in some way facilitating them in order to forward their hidden agendas. Yet the facts increasingly point in that direction.
Just added 3 new MP3s from an incredibly ill MC named 'TruthTold'. For being a non-signed MC he is definitely on point in his message and has some serious lyrical skills.
You can find his soundclick site here.
Be sure to check out the 3 new tracks added to the Special Feature: 9/11 Related Music topic.
Here are the 3 new tracks added:
- TruthTold - 911 A Cold Day in Hell
- TruthTold - Birth of the Prince of Terror
I've been pretty busy down here in Baton Rouge but have been trying to maintain my usual website monitoring. A lot has been said, and will be said, about how the disaster in New Orleans directly relates to 9/11, from the lack of preparation, to the lack of response, etc.
In any event, I am getting ready to go to NY for 9/11 to attend a few events. I just got word that David Ray Griffin will be giving a talk at Grace Cathedral on 9/11 in NY. Hopefully I will find out the exact times soon.
I am a newbie to NY, so if anyone can provide suggestions on where to stay cheap, the best ways to get around, and the best airport to fly into it would be much appreciated. I plan on at the very least attending the 9/11 memorial at ground zero and attending Griffin's speech as well.
A month or two back Michael Ruppert mentioned that Al-Jazeera would be running a series on 9/11 on this years anniversary. I haven't been able to track down the exact dates and times, and I am not sure what opportunities we might have here in the U.S. to watch it either.
In any event, the Times Online mentioned the upcoming series in the following article:
CIA videos reveal the missed chances to kill Bin Laden
Previously unseen footage of Osama Bin Laden taken by a CIA spy drone reveals how close the Americans came to killing the Al-Qaeda leader two years before the September 11 attacks.
I've gotten a bunch of emails from people out there spreading DVDs and a couple of them came in this week which I thought were inventive ways to spread information. Perhaps these will give others ideas as well.
This one involves spreading the word on Halloween:
Scary Holiday for 9/11 Perpetrators
Hey all, less than two months until Halloween, hard to believe, but it will be upon us before we know it.
When the little kiddies come knocking on our doors this year looking for goodies, lets give the adults a treat too, something in the form of 9/11 Truth. Maybe it will be a flyer, maybe a CD filled with audio and video, or maybe even stickers or badges that say 911=Inside Job. When the parents search through their children's haul that night, they will be in for quite a surprise.
Got the following email about an upcoming event on 9/9 in Madison, WI.
2nd Annual Marathon 9/11 Truth Teach-In
U.W.-Madison Library Mall, 9 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday 9/9/2005
Madison, WI â€”MUJCA-NET (the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth) is pleased to sponsor the second annual Marathon 9/11 Truth Teach-In this Friday, September 9th, on Library Mall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Since the first teach-in last year, tremendous progress has been made in publicizing the now-indisputable fact that the 9/11 Commission Report was a massive whitewash. David Griffinâ€™s book The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions has conclusively proven that the Kean-Zelikow report is, as Griffin puts it, â€œa 567-page lie,â€ and that the most plausible motive for the reportâ€™s demonstrably preposterous lies was an effort to cover up â€œhigh crimes in the highest places.â€ Harperâ€™s magazine, in its cover story â€œWhitewashâ€ last fall, made the same point, and a growing list of academics, historians, and ex-top US officials have openly charged the Bush administration with 9/11 treason. The Bush Administrationâ€™s top economist in the Department of Labor, Morgan Reynolds, resigned last year and wrote a blistering article marshalling the evidence that the three World Trade Center buildings were destroyed in controlled demolitions with explosives in an â€œinside-jobâ€ scenario. Reynoldsâ€™ charges were supported by Paul Craig Roberts, a former high-level Reagan Administration official who is listed by Whoâ€™s Who as one of Americaâ€™s 200 most influential political thinkers. And former high-level CIA official Ray McGovernâ€”who, like Reynolds and Roberts, is a Republicanâ€”also finally â€œcame outâ€ as a 9/11 truth supporter, crediting his conversion to David Griffinâ€™s books.
WBAI in New York City hosted several 9/11 skeptics on their show 'Talk Back!' on August 31st. Their guests included David Ray Griffin, Col. Robert Bowman, Peter Phillips, and Carol Brouillet, and is available to download in their archive here.
You can also directly download the MP3 here. Apparently the show got lots of calls from people interested in the subject, which is definitely good news!
Thanks to Questioning the War on Terrorism for the heads up!
By allowing the attacks to happen â€” or in the case of the most extreme theories, by organising them under a â€œfalse flagâ€ â€” the military-industrial complex in America, headed by Dick Cheney and his neocon supporters in the Project for a New American Century, guaranteed that America would stay at war and that profits would stay high. Supporters of this and similar theories point to previous occasions where America has invented incidents to justify continuing hostilities, such as during the Spanish-American conflict or the Gulf of Tonkin incident in the Vietnam war.
Welp, you knew it had to happen. I've been wanting some new shirts to wear, and figured the best shirts I could wear would be those that spread the word about 9/11. Most of the shirts are being sold as cheap as I can, but a few have a noted donation attached to the price. While the prices are a bit high after shipping that is because these aren't being made in bulk, but rather when you order.
I have a few designs available as well as a few 'quote' shirts. I will be adding new designs as time goes on, and I want to hear some feedback. If you have any 'quote' shirts you would like to see, or any other requests please email me by clicking 'Suggestions?' under the shop banner on the left panel.
There are a few articles that definately demand checking out, so here is a grab bag to keep you busy.
We know that 9/11, regardless of the degree of complicity you believe the Bush Administration was guilty of, was seized on by Bush&Co. as the event that would be used to justify all that would follow domestically and in foreign/military affairs. The evidence indicates that, at the least, the highest circles in the White House knew a spectacular attack was in the works in the days and weeks preceeding 9/11 -- warnings were coming into the White House from a host of foreign leaders and intelligence agencies -- but chose to do nothing, presumably to make use of those events in the service of their hidden agenda.
Lots of stuff going on out there on the west coast. They will be debuting 'Behind Every Terrorist there is a Bush' as well as showing a bunch of videos. I will still be in NY for 9/11, but I hope some of you out there will attend these events and report back.
Congressman Curt Weldon (R - Pennsylvania) gave another exclusive interview to Dom Giordano this evening (Monday) and broke the news that he will be giving a speech on September 8th (next Monday) during which he will present yet another 'Able Danger' witness. This new witness will attest (and will swear under oath when called) that he was "ordered to destroy records" relating to the 'Able Danger' program.
George Tenet will not let himself become the "fall guy" for 9/11 intelligence failures, according to a former intelligence officer and a source friendly to Mr. Tenet, the conservative Washington Times asserted Thursday.
"The report, delivered to Congress this week, recommends punitive sanctions for Mr. Tenet, former Deputy Director of Operations James L. Pavitt and former counter-terrorist center head J. Cofer Black," Roberts writes. "Mr. Tenet's response to the report is a 20-page, tightly knitted rebuttal of responsibility prepared with the aid of a lawyer, according to the friendly source."
A year ago the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed to study how New Orleans could be protected from a catastrophic hurricane, but the Bush administration ordered that the research not be undertaken. After a flood killed six people in 1995, Congress created the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project, in which the Corps of Engineers strengthened and renovated levees and pumping stations. In early 2001, the Federal Emergency Management Agency issued a report stating that a hurricane striking New Orleans was one of the three most likely disasters in U.S., including a terrorist attack on New York City. But by 2003 the federal funding for the flood control project essentially dried up as it was drained into the Iraq war. In 2004, the Bush administration cut the Corps of Engineers' request for holding back the waters of New Orleans' Lake Pontchartrain by more than 80 percent. Additional cuts at the beginning of this year (for a total reduction in funding of 44.2 percent since 2001) forced the Corps to impose a hiring freeze. The Senate had debated adding funds for fixing New Orleans levees, but it was too late.
