An Appeal to Silent Academics

Leading experts both in the East and the West are requested to give the following facts some serious thought before continuing support of the illegal war and occupation of Afghanistan with their words or with their continued silence.

It is always the academic circles, which pave the way and provide final legitimacy to acts of aggression on the part of politicians and military leaders or pave the road for peace. In the present day world, most of the academic experts in international relations and political science are either silent or have put Afghanistan on the back-burner in the sense that they have accepted its occupation perfectly legitimate.
When the argument that the United States invaded Afghanistan because of oil and energy needs turns on its head, others resort to concluding that it was the horror of 9/11 that forced the United States into launching a “defensive” war on Afghanistan. The aforementioned facts show that the Taliban had nothing to do with 9/11, and that getting Osama was not a good-enough justification for invading and occupying Afghanistan for an indefinite period. The invasion was planned before 9/11 and 9/11 was too sophisticated an operation for people living in caves in Afghanistan to put together and successfully implement to the last detail.
The predictability of the crusade against Islam can be seen in the news management that has followed the staged disaster of 9/11. Look at what always happens in such moments of staged chaos, and you will see that the blueprint for coming events is the same in almost every case. Before a staged terrorist attack happens, the fall-guy or “patsy” is already set up to take the blame, thus steering the public mind away from dangerous speculation and onto a pre-ordained target.

Osama’s name was introduced immediately after the disaster unfolded. The idea that this person from the mountains of Afghanistan with far more mouth than substance could be the “Mr. Big” of this enormous operation is utterly insulting to anyone of intelligence. We are not talking about a parcel bomb here. Four commercial airliners had to be simultaneously hijacked in American air space via American airports and flown into highly specific targets within 45 minutes of each other. How was this possible? It was possible because it was an inside job, orchestrated by forces within the United States and planned by the highest levels of U.S. authority and intelligence community.

Bottom line is 911 was

Bottom line is 911 was staged. Mass murder of our own citizens to foment the mass murder of mostly innocent foriegners.
Evil people are running our country and must be brought to justice if there is to be any hope of reclaiming our democracy.

This is an incredible

This is an incredible article -- and, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this a first for 9/11 truth at Media Monitors Network? I don't visit often, but my impression from the past was that they were silent on this. Anybody know?

I urge everyone to read the article -- it's one of the best I've seen in a very long time.

I haven't read it.. it was

I haven't read it.. it was awfully long. What was it about?

CK, I think you've mistaken

CK, I think you've mistaken media monitor for media matters. Media monitors have covered the 9/11 cover ups many times. The person whose name I forgot that wrote "war on freedom" is a regular there.

Second Bill Owens-

Second Bill Owens- "democracy" is meaningless if the People's representatives are allowed to do things like 9/11. I bet they even told each other it was for the good of the country to secure the middle east's oil and maintain domestic stability thru passage of the PATRIOT Act. They're better than us and we can't handle the truth, but We the People need them run things. Jefferson was wrong, and if left to our own devices, the People would do worse to ourselves than 9/11, is that how their patriotic, empathetic logic goes?

Give us the truth, give me liberty or give me death. I say if our government is held to the Constitutional principles that are its foundation, then that's right, good, legal and just. The Constitution by virtue of it's opening sentence "We the People" affirms its agreement with the statement in the Declaration of Independence that humans are given their rights by God and the reason governments are instuted is to protect those rights.

The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States: "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

That statement kicks ass; how is that our government is full of self-serving greedy hypocrits instead of people who love to serve those principles? Why is people like JFK, RFK, King and Wellstone get killed?

Did the People "elect" George Bush because he promised to save us by lying to us and permitting "false-flag" terror mass murder destruction? I don't remember that speech- can someone post the clip?

Everything will be better, including for the "elite" with the People back in charge. The Russians stopped a coup trying to return the old hardliners to power. A number of countries in Eastern Europe stopped election fraud. South America has been rejecting the neocon imperialist agenda and electing leftists/progressives instead. America has been becoming more liberal with each generation. Bush was not legitimately elected either time.

JFK II - Video Inside

Cripes, this guy make many

Cripes, this guy make many hard hitting points about 9-11 being an inside job. Well worth the read.

Jon: I saw it about a year


I saw it about a year ago and really enjoyed it, though I was -29 years old when it happened it is a very compelling documentary...

I watched William Cooper's "BEHOLD A PALE HORSE" presentation and he seems to think the Zapruder video is fixed, and that the front seat passenger seat shot Kennedy in the face or the driver I can't remember which one.

Cooper also says that Bush's oil company's ports were used to smuggle drugs into the country, making him one of the first major smugglers of hard drugs. Fits right in with his CIA gig, I'd say.

I'm glad I never got hooked on drugs.

Thanks for posting the JFK

Thanks for posting the JFK video Jon. I have it in my collection but for those who don't I suggest you download and watch it. Yes, Bush Sr. was part of the murder. I also believe LBJ had Kennedy's blood on his hands. The Kennedy brothers saved the world from a nuclear war with their handling of the Cuban Missile Crises and both got murdered as a thank you. (Watch "Thirteen Days" if you don't believe me) People wonder why I hate Bush and the Globalists so much. Had the Kennedy brothers lived I can assure you we wouldn't be in the mess we are in today. I pray every day that I live long enough to see Bush and his Globalist thugs hang.

wow! never seen that doc

wow! never seen that doc before. thanks for the link Jon. pretty deep and definitely makes the big picture a bit more clear. skull & bones stuff is very interesting.

I don't see much about this

I don't see much about this idea on 9/11 truth forums or sites, as it is controversial...but none the less:

I'd like to see a LOT of guerrilla 9/11 truth activism. "Question 9/11"/"9/11 Truth" stickers and posters placed on city walls, toll booths, subways, etc. Graffiti'd, stenciled, etc. I want to see giant freeway banners that say "Question 9/11", so thousands of people in traffic would see that. I want to see every World Trade Center movie poster defaced with "Question 9/11". I want to see 9/11 truthers call into every single political call in show.

I also want to see 9/11 truth finally merged into the anti war movement and youth activism, which has largely ignored 9/11 truth...Im thinking as of 2006 people would be more open minded. Urgency is upon us, 3.5 months til 9/11 5th year anniversary.

Hey DHS, the Zapruder

Hey DHS, the Zapruder footage is definitely fixed, there are frames missing, Fetzer did an awesome writeup on this topic.

Also, I have taken a close look at that vid and the bullet didn't come from the front seat. It really does look like the guy in the front seat pulled out a gun, but if you look closely you can see it was just the way the shadows were falling or something like that, can't remember.

I little civil disobedience

I little civil disobedience could go a long way.

"I also want to see 9/11 truth finally merged into the anti war movement and youth activism, which has largely ignored 9/11 truth"

If the anti-war movement were on board with 9/11 truth, the wars (Afghanistan & Iraq) would probably have been ended long ago.



As someone posted, 33:18 and on...a real NY first responder(narcotics officer)
saying what MANY NYFD/NYPD are afraid to say. Suspicious men, secondary explosives, betrayal from within the government, being told to shut up, commumication disruptions, etc.

yes, its a great film. LBJ and Nixon both knew about the killing before hand as well. in my opinion. there was a little reported meeting between H.W. Bush,Nixon and LBJ. i know somebody can verify this for me with a link.........

maddog, what is "Thirteen

maddog, what is "Thirteen Days"? you got a link?

Re: the RBN radio interview

Re: the RBN radio interview with "Bob."
Fantastic. Just amazing first hand account of 9/11.
The only frustration I had was with the interviewers, who keep interrupting Bob, and asking less than crisp quesions.
Even though, eveybody should listen to this, starting around 33 min. in.

Why would the Zapruta film

Why would the Zapruta film be tampered with? What purpose would it serve? The video clearly shows that there was a Conspiracy behind the death of JFK. If you say that the film is illegitimate, then you're saying there wasn't a conspiracy behind the murder of JFK. Right?

.To Chris, "Thirteen Days"

.To Chris, "Thirteen Days" was a movie about the Cuban Missile Crisis. It shows how close we came to a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. There are plenty of links to the movie. Here is one of them. I was 20 at the time. (1962) I don't think I have ever been so scared in my life. I knew what was at stake. If Bush had been president at that time, I wouldn't be writing this post. Enough said

thanks maddog, check this

Fetzer is the man. i was dissapointed he was basically the only one to write a book on the killing of Senator Wellstone.

I may have lost my ability

I may have lost my ability to post on the Washington Post blog. I tried sending the response below for a second time, and it was again not published. Could it have something to do with what the text contains? The phrase "war games", for instance? I'm wondering if the WP blog has some kind of word recognition mechanism. Anyway, the discussion seems to have been purposely derailed there...

- - - - -

thanks for responding. It's pleasant to be engaged in a real conversation on a forum like this, even if the conversants' views do not completely agree. If we all would only remember that it is arguments, not people, that fight... ;-)

I concur with many of your points. Indeed, what we are seeing is a sad waste of lives and resources.

I'd like to return to some points that I don't agree on. You wrote:

"We don't have much of a choice but to believe Bin Laden is still alive. His latest audiotape denies Moussaoui's involvement in 9-11."

As I wrote, after the attacks bin Laden denied involvement (he actually did this *twice*). Please compare the bin Laden from the December 2001 "confession" video to known pictures of him at

I don't see any way the guy in the "confession video" could be bin Laden. Can you? Please look at the pictures.

I can only concur with Greg that the reason behind the latest "announcement" of bin Laden was to reinforce the official story. He may have been given a chance to escape Tora Bora, but whether he is still alive -- I don't think we can know that. However, I doubt that very much.

"Ask yourself why the government is so concerned about being held legally responsible for 9-11? I can't help but wonder there are documents and people that show it was negligent in preventing this attack."

As I understand, negligence and especially incompetence are central parts of the official story. However, I don't understand how nobody has been fired, or even demoted, because of incompetence on 9/11. By contrast, many people who were in positions of responsibility on 9/11 have been *promoted* after the attacks. The only people who have been fired have been whistleblowers. Some of them have been put under gag order on the basis of "national security" (Sibel Edmunds, for example).

"As for the planes flying around for over an hour I'm not surprised they flew for so long. There weren't prior to 9-11 many units on strip alert."

Did you know that on 9/11, there were a number of large-scale war and antiterrorism excercises going on in the USA, as a result of which a large number of fighter jets were located in Alaska at the time? There were also several simulated aircraft hijacking scenarios being exercized that morning, which very likely confused the air traffic controllers (in one FAA conversation, for example, one party asks if this is a drill and the other party answers that it is not a drill).

The brave congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (for me, a true American hero) "grilled" the Defense Minister about these

"Mr. Chairman, I have a question"

Do you think the three different official explanations for the lack of air defense response covered by David Ray Griffin in his article "The 9/11 Commission's Incredible Tales: Flights 11, 175, 77, and 93" could be explainable in the context of these war games and antiterrorism drills?

For a detailed description and analysis of the three different official explanations, please read Griffin's excellent article. It can be found here:

Cynthia McKinney is a hero

Cynthia McKinney is a hero for sure. read the chapter about her in the book "True Lies" by GNN. its enough to make you cry with happiness that someone like this is still in Congress.great book by the way, its about everything from Mckinney,to 9/11,to stolen elections, to depleted uranium, etc. etc. etc.
