Comment on 911Researchers Website Promotes Violence Against Activist John Albanese
As you all know I have been in the process of assembling legal assistance in dealing with the onslaught of dangerous incitements occurring associated with the New York 911 Truth movement, as well as myriad documented cases of threats that have been occurring.
It has come to my attention that a website 911Researchers.com has run an opinion piece as follows:
Enemy Combatant Status: Render John Albanese to a Black Site?

"It is my personal opinion based solely on the email presented here that John Albanese might be a dangerous lunatic who poses a threat to the American way of life. If he poses a clear and present danger to the security of our homeland and to himself, I feel it would be for the best if he were placed in a secret black location where interrogators could use enhanced methods to achieve greater effectiveness in getting the truth out of him. I feel in my gut that he could be an Al Qaida operative, based on the language he uses in that email. As a general rule, it seems to me that any dangerous character making threats could be some kind of "enemy combatant" and should be treated as such."
"Assuming that he has terrorist masters who may eventually withdraw support for his operations, it may not be long before Albanese is eating culturally-appropriate meals and waiting for his overseers to begin a tribunal process. After about six to ten years of humane detention, a tribunal could review his status. If John Albanese behaves recklessly in the future he could pose a grave danger to himself and others. My personal belief is that if John Albanese admits to serious crimes during interrogation, he should be lawfully detained until arrangements can be made for his further incarceration in a purpose-built institution."
"Perhaps the ones who ought to think about retiring are the ones who suggest it first. I have no doubt that if John Albanese is actively planning to commit a terrorist act, such as bombing a church, bus, or synagogue, arrangements could be made for the safe relocation of this "John Albanese" to someplace far away. I trust that he will be treated humanely in keeping with the spirit of the Geneva Convention. I certainly pray that John Albanese will not commit acts of violence against people or property."
"Terrorism is wrong, John Albanese, and if you are thinking of killing anyone you should surrender yourself to the authorities immediately."

This of course has been documented and reported this morning to law enforcement authorities, along with the many other cases of threats and harassment that have taken place over the last several months. I have been assured by my lawyers that this language constitutes a threat to my safety, and will be pursued with all vigorous intent to determine the source.
I would like to ask for the support of the community in distributing this. I am putting my faith in all peace loving members of this community to reject the implied threats and insinuation of VIOLENCE that this post represents.
If 9/11 Activists can be threatened in this way, and standing up to those who seek to label us “Nazis” and call for “Death to Nazis” outside a church where peaceful activists are seeking answers to 9/11, then we are all in danger of losing our precious civil liberties.
In the 1960’s a antiwar group known as the Students for a Democratic Society included among their ranks Jewish activists Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Mark Rudd, and Paul Krassner. In 1969 the FBI created and distributed a leaflet depicting photos of these four activists super-imposed against swastikas over the headline "LAMPSHADES! LAMPSHADES! LAMPSHADES!"
Today we see a church in NYC picketed as follows:
Whether this is the product of a governmental program to incite violence against a church is unknown. But, it is nothing less than threatening - and unless we show unity in confronting it, none of us are safe.
