Bush's War Of Terror, WTC Buildings

There has never been a steel frame building that has ever collapsed as a result of fire.[14] There have been numerous steel buildings that have had severe fires that burned for several hours but the buildings never collapsed. The towers were built to withstand 160 mile winds and the crash of a 707, a plane not much smaller than a 767. They were also heavily imbued with asbestos, a fire retardant. The South Tower collapsed at 9:59 AM after being hit at 9:03 AM (56 minutes). The North Tower collapsed at 10:28 AM after being hit at 8:46 AM (1 hour, 42 minutes).

We are told that the towers were severely weakened by the crashes. Yet, from photos and video both towers appeared stable and motionless after the impacts. In fact, the damage appeared to be minor rather than severe.

9/11: The Death Toll Continues

Pat Arcese wakes up every morning, knowing the clock is ticking, knowing he’s fighting a losing battle against cancer, a deathly cancer caused by working at Ground Zero after 9/11.
Arcese, who was once robust and solid as a rock, has now been reduced, turned literally into a walking skeleton, as his over 200 pound muscular frame has been dwindled down by cancer to a mere 125 pounds.

Al Qaeda – The Database

Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that "Al Qaeda" is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.

"In the mid-1980s, Al Qaida was a database located in computer and dedicated to the communications of the Islamic Conference's secretariat.

"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the 'TV watcher' to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money."

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds tells of dispute

Edmonds began working for the FBI shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, translating top-secret suspected terrorist documents, but was fired in the spring of 2002 after reporting her concerns about alleged sabotage, intimidation, corruption and incompetence.

In October 2002, Edmonds appeared on "60 Minutes" on CBS television and charged that Turks suspected of ties to terrorism had infiltrated the FBI, State Department and Department of Defense. On Oct. 18, 2002, following a request from FBI Director Robert Mueller, Attorney General John Ashcroft imposed a gag order on Edmonds, citing possible damage to diplomatic relations or national security.

I would be disinclined to buy the DVD, as someone who's read Rubicon and subscribes to FTW and has heard most Ruppert interview MP3s which make the rounds.

But it may be useful in initiating the blue-pill crowd... Be interested to hear your review JG.
