9/11 Truth opportunity at White House on 11/7 and 11/8

Maybe this is not even worth the effort. It's hard for me to assess that since, as someone who is nowhere near Washington, D.C., this post will be the extent of my effort. Still, I will lay it out there for anyone interested.

Following this introduction are two emails. The first one I received from Gold Star Families for Peace, an organization co-founded by Cindy Sheehan, about a sit-in they are planning to hold at the White House on November 7th and 8th. It's the usual "We want our country back", "Bring the troops home" stuff, not that that isn't important. But what's missing is 9/11 awareness. A couple of months ago, one of the organizations affiliated with Cindy Sheehan banned Veterans for 9/11 Truth from participating in "Camp Democracy," which is not very encouraging. They are now planning a non-permitted event at the White House. I say we join 'em and spread some truth. Of course, by "we" I mean other people who are nearby and can actually attend. Following the announcement is my email reply to Cindy and GSFP, which I Cc'd to v911t and dc911t.

I'd love to see a picture of someone handing a 9/11 DVD to Cindy Sheehan.

We Want our Country Back and
The Troops Home from Iraq
Massive Sit-in, White House
November 7th and 8th

A message from Cindy Sheehan:

Good comes from the bottom up---crap rolls down hill. I am tired of getting crapped on by our government---when will it be enough for you? We are covered with crap and our leaders aren't going to clean it up---we have to.
Gold Star Families for Peace is planning on convening on the White House on election day and the day after (Nov. 7 & 8).

We hope that there are enough Americans who are willing to stand up and be counted with us to demonstrate to BushCo and Congress, Inc. that we are tired of having our rights taken away from us faster than our bombs destroyed Babylon. We are tired of having our young people die and kill innocent people to enhance corporate America's bottom line. We are tired of the constant drip, drip, drip of the wearing away of everything that we hold dear.
I withdrew my consent to be governed by maniacs long ago. I withdraw my consent to be hauled off to Guantanamo and be stashed away for matriotically dissenting from this crime-ridden regime.

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired of the corruption and heartache?

Show your discontent with us.

Vote absentee so your vote will have a better chance of being counted and join
Gold Star Families for Peace and other prominent peace groups and organizations in our continuing quest to end the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq and hold our government accountable.

If the Republicans steal another election, it is time for we the people to stand up (or sit down) to demonstrate that we are finally not taking corrupt and illegitimate elections anymore. We need to surround the White House by the tens of thousands those days.

But equally important, if a miracle occurs and the Democrats take back one or both Houses of Congress, we also need to be out in great numbers to remind them that we will hold them to the same standards of peace with justice that we are about to hold the Republicans to.

This will be a non-permitted event. It is time that we also take back our First Amendment rights to peaceably gather, exercise our freedoms of speech and to petition our government for redress of wrong.

War is over if we want it and WE are the ones we have been waiting for.

Come and make history with us by being the checks and balances on our government that are so sorely needed! Or organize sit-ins in your community if you can't make it to DC.

Dear Cindy,

I admire you for your courage and stamina in standing up to this administration under the hot Texas sun and enduring the awful things that are said about you.

What you wrote in this message is mostly true. I will only take exception to your statement that the Democrats taking back part or all of Congress would be a miracle. A miracle is, in my understanding, a good thing. Democrats taking back control of Congress is, at best, a giant step sideways. I think it might actually be a bad thing in that it will satisfy much of the discontent in this country while allowing crimes other than our occupation of Iraq to remain unpunished.

I am talking about the crimes of 9/11. When I first emailed you a note of support in July of 2005, I had been studying 9/11 for several months but was not yet at the point where I would say out loud or to myself that, "9/11 was an inside job." Fifteen months later I am not only convinced but I am no longer afraid to say it out loud to people in my community, or to you. Any study of the Iraq war must include a study of its primary justification, 9/11. I wonder how many of your supporters are aware of the third building, WTC 7, that collapsed on that day in what appeared to be an ideal controlled demolition. I wonder how many of them are aware of the multiple wargames taking place that succeeded in crippling our air defenses on that day. I wonder if you are aware of these things yourself. I read with dismay last August that your organization had banned Veterans for 9/11 Truth from participating in "Camp Democracy": http://www.911blogger.com/node/2073

I cannot afford to come to D.C. for the sit in next month, although I wish I could be there. If I was there I would be bringing my own perspective and trying to educate your supporters on the many overlooked and avoided facts of 9/11. Cindy, please open your mind and your mouth to the truth of 9/11. If you are already "9/11 aware", as I like to call it, then please end your silence; you have the opportunity to educate thousands, perhaps millions, of people about 9/11. We already know you have the strength to endure whatever names you will be called.

If you are not 9/11 aware, please become so. I challenge you, Cindy, to do the research and educate yourself about the truth of 9/11. You will quickly discover, as Bob Bowman has said, "The truth about 9/11 is that we don't know the truth about 9/11." But we do know what is NOT the truth about 9/11, and that is the official account as described in the 9/11 Commission report.

I will also encourage 9/11 activists in DC to join your sit in (we too oppose this administration and the Iraq war) and spread the truth of 9/11 to your supporters.

OT, but what ever happened to John Stewart...

Daily Show host/comedian John Stewart seemed to be dropping hints that 9/11 was an inside job not long ago. I thought he was going to be the next celebrity to break open 9/11 truth.

Lately however, I'm disappointed to notice that Stewart seems to keep implying that the "official story" is valid. Although he's usually joking, Stewart's remarks have to do with al-Qaeda or bin Laden having attacked us, real "terrorists" still being a threat, etc. (He is also too wish/washy about us pulling out of Iraq quickly. )

I don't know what to make out of Stewart any more.
