Cindy Sheehan's Comments on 9/11

Cindy Sheehan's Letter to NightLine - March 14, 2005

The second reason that America was given before the invasion was that Saddam was the biggest sponsor of world terrorism and he supported Osama Bin Laden! Oh really??? The hijackers were predominantly Saudi Arabian as was Osama (who is still at large, by the way). The theory that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11 was disproven by the 9/11 commission's report. A huge factor in Americans believing all this bull is that our media..the Fourth Estate didn't do any research and expose the lies for what they were: justifications for invading a country that posed no imminent or long-term threat to America.

Eyewitness Reports to Explosions in the WTC - 'You are being lied to' Video

Dem Bruce Lee Styles sent me a link to a video entitled 'You are being lied to' featuring a bunch of eye witness comments referring to explosions inside of the WTC. I personally hadn't seen quite a few of these clips, so it may be worth checking out.

Click here to download the video from mypetgoat.tv.

If anyone has any video editing experience and can normalize the audio for all of the clips in this video it would be much appreciated!

USINFO.STATE.GOV Repsonds to 9/11 'Conspiracies'

Thierry Meyssan - French Conspiracy Theorist Claims No Plane Hit Pentagon
This was posted to a government site in June, so it is a bit old, but I thought it was worth mentioning for those interested. It comments on Pentagon and WTC 'conspiracy theories'.

In conclusion, Mr. Meyssan's book ignores obvious facts, makes sweeping, totally unfounded allegations, and employs spurious logic to try to explain away facts that he apparently finds inconvenient. As the French newspaper Liberation said, the book is "a tissue of wild and irresponsible allegations, entirely without foundation."

Open Thread - Back to Town

Tommorrow will be a day of traveling for me. I've already got a few things to cover when I get back, as well as anything sent through email.

Post anything that might come up until I do a full update this weekend.

Interview with Michael Meacher Discussing 9/11, Iraq, and More

Freeplay: Alex Jones In London
I just came across this new interview with Michael Meacher, a member of parliament until 2003, and author of This War on Terrorism is Bogus (Guardian).

It is definately worth checking out, and spreading.

Pentagon Announces September 11 Concert - Can You Spell Propaganda?

Pentagon announces September 11 concert

The Pentagon would hold a massive march and country music concert to mark the fourth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said in an announcement tucked into an Iraq war briefing today.

"This year the Department of Defence will initiate an America Supports Your Freedom Walk," Rumsfeld said, adding that the march would remind people of "the sacrifices of this generation and of each previous generation".

Hi-Res Scans of Major 9/11 Article in Daily Mail

A few days ago in a thread called 9/11 ON TRIAL Article in the Daily Mail I made brief reference to an article on 9/11 being in a publication called the 'Daily Mail'.

At the time I didn't realize that the Daily Mail is a very large publication in the UK. According to a user here this is one of the top newspapers in the UK, and after getting the scans of the article today I have to say it is quite refreshing to see such major coverage!

Check out the scans by clicking the thumbnails below:

Statement of September 11th Advocates Regarding Surveillance of Mohammed Atta

As a group of 9/11 widows who fought for the creation of the 9/11 Independent Commission, we are horrified to learn of further possible evidence (as detailed by the New York Times article, "4 in 9/11 Plot Are Called Tied to Qaeda in '00") that the 9/11 Commission failed to fully investigate all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the 9/11 attacks.

911Research Releases Major Article Critiquing NIST's WTC Report

I just noticed that Jim Hoffman from 911research.wtc7.net has released a major rebuttal to the recent NIST report on the collapses of WTC1 and WTC2.

You can find this rebuttal at the link below. The rebuttal is quite lengthy in scope and will take some time to peruse, but I think it is great to see such an in-depth response to the NIST report.

McKinney and Others Blast the Atlanta Journal Over '9/11 Conspiracy' Comments

Two weeks ago I mentioned the AJC's article on the recent 9/11 hearing hosted by Cynthia McKinney. I have seen sections of the hearing as well as listened to it live, and the term 'conspiracy theory' being mentioned in the AJC's article did strike a cord with me. At this point I am always somewhat happy to see any mention of 9/11 questions by the mainstream media, and seeing as how the AJC was the only mainstream news source to even mention the event I couldn't hate them too much (although myself and others did write them letters complaining about the tone of their article).

Out of Town Open Thread

I will be out of town until late Friday night. I will have internet access, but I'm not sure what exactly my abilities will be while I am gone. I will do my best to stay on top of things, but I won't be answering emails.

Please post any articles here which I might miss!

Four in 9/11 Plot Are Called Tied to Qaeda in '00

In the summer of 2000, the military team, known as Able Danger, prepared a chart that included visa photographs of the four men and recommended to the military's Special Operations Command that the information be shared with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the congressman, Representative Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, and the former intelligence official said Monday.

Rant: Remember 9/11, it Justifies Everything

Arg. I just read an article by a journalist named Gordon Sawyer that really hit me the wrong way, you can find it here:

Remember Pearl Harbor ... Remember 9/11

Here are a couple quick samples of what he considers 'Remember[ing] 9/11':

I think it fair to say America is not unified in this war on terror we are fighting. When was the last time you saw a picture of the Twin Towers in New York crashing down with almost 3,000 American civilians inside?

Like that parallel? We're not unified because we don't remember 9/11.

Bush & Co: Still Stonewalling on 9/11

Bush & Co: Still Stonewalling on 9/11
The folks at thinkprogress.org have written up an article on the 9/11 Commission.

It looks like the Bush administration is still playing fast and loose with the 9/11 Commission and the public’s right to know.

Recall just a few of the tactics we’ve already seen:

First, the administration argued that an independent inquiry was simply a bad idea (“I think it’s the wrong way to go,” said Cheney). Then, when the bipartisan Commission was formed, the White House dragged its feet in every way possible. It opposed handing over daily intelligence briefings (”Those are very sensitive documents,” said Bush). It tried to bar Condoleeza Rice from testifying (”Historically, White House staffers do not testify before legislative bodies,” claimed Scott McClellan). It rejected the Commission’s request for an extension (”We expect they will be able to meet that deadline,” said spokeswoman Erin Healy). It even set time limits on how long Bush could testify (“We have discussed with the Commission what we believe is a reasonable period of time,” intoned McClellan).

User Submission - Simple Logic Exposes the Truth

The following is a user submission sent in by SomeBigGuy focused on the 'collapses' of the twin towers and WTC7:

A lot has been said about the fact that no steel framed building have ever collapsed from fire before or since 9/11. I've found that if you take this one simple fact just a little further, the truth of 9/11 becomes unmistakable.

In order to convince everyone of the truth, this is the only argument you'll need. Lets take it from the top:

Something that pundits of the official story as well as the media like to ignore is that there was a third collapse on 9/11. Building 7 (WTC 7) collapsed around 5:20 on 9/11 and WAS NOT hit by any airplane. Officially it caught fire from debris and collapsed due to these fires. Additionally, the existence of diesel fuel stored in the building is often blamed for creating the non-existent inferno and bringing the tower down. However, even FEMA's half baked analysis of the collapses conceded that there was only a small probability of that being the case.

9/11 ON TRIAL Article in the Daily Mail

9/11 ON TRIAL
This is a rather lengthy article briefly covering a range of topics from Operation Northwoods, the 'collapses' of the two towers, the confiscated pentagon tapes, LIHOP vs MIHOP, etc. It offers a rather specific 'conspiracy theory' which a lot of people will disagree with, but I felt the article was worth mentioning.

Apparently this article is in response to their new book entitled '9/11 Revealed: Challenging the facts behind the War on Terror'. You can find the official site for this book at 911revealed.co.uk, and you can find the amazon page for the book here.

CIA Commander Admits Bin Laden Was Allowed to Escape Tora Bora

CIA Commander: We Let bin Laden Slip Away - Newsweek

the CIA field commander for the agency's Jawbreaker team at Tora Bora, Gary Berntsen, says he and other U.S. commanders did know that bin Laden was among the hundreds of fleeing Qaeda and Taliban members. Berntsen says he had definitive intelligence that bin Laden was holed up at Tora Bora—intelligence operatives had tracked him—and could have been caught.

Check out these articles for some background on this known evacuation from Tora Bora:

Father, Who Lost Son at WTC, Claims Bush Administration Hiding Key Financial Documents Leading To Culprits of 9/11

Father, Who Lost Son at WTC, Claims Bush Administration Hiding Key Financial Documents Leading To Culprits of 9/11

William Doyle has become one of the main lightening rods of the 9/11 truth movement, saying President Bush and his cronies are the biggest stumbling block in getting at the real truth. Involved as one of the plaintiffs in a trillion dollar 9/11 lawsuit, he wants the American people to know Bush is hiding vital documents that could lead to the truth.
..
“They have blocked every avenue into getting at the truth behind 9/11,” said Doyle, referring to the shallow and unfounded 9/11 Commission findings as well as the Bush administration’s failure to release known information about the financial ties to 9/11.

I will be out of pocket this weekend, so if you come across any 9/11 related alternative news while I am out please feel free to post it.

Nearly four years after the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center, the New York City Fire Department will release its remaining audio recordings made by emergency dispatchers on the day of the attacks.

9/11 conspiracy DVD sent to French media

PARIS, France (UPI) -- Hundreds of French reporters have received copies of a DVD claiming the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks were fabricated by the Bush administration.

Titled "Confronting the Evidence," and posted from New York, the DVD claims that the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were a lie orchestrated by U.S. President George W. Bush.
