Homeland Insecurity: The 9/11 Conspiracy File: Myths and Facts
Wed, 2007-09-12 11:22 — ABN
I admit that I have been feeling a bit depressed about American democracy and the capacity of the American people to understand what is happening to their nation, but after reading the comments that follow the article linked below, my spirits have been lifted considerably. The article itself is a good example of the slop that mainstream journos serve the population, but the comments are the voice of the people--strongly worded, knowledgeable, and many of them funny as all hell...

Readers of DailyDros have seen more than one outrageous 9/11 conspiracy theory surface on these pages. And there have been a few diaries questioning why conspiracy theory diaries are not allowed. Would it have to do with something about lack of evidence? As we've been told by our fearless leaders repeatedly, there is a TON of evidence linking Bin Laden to the attacks. Sure, they haven't shown it to us, but they said they've got it. That's good enough for us here at DailyDros!

9-11, Six Years Later
Tue, 2007-09-11 11:35 — ABN
A rational society would simply reopen an investigation into 9/11 and settle the matter. Since very few in mainstream America are calling for this obvious course of action, we must fairly conclude that mainstream America (political, media, business, academic, religious, etc.) is not rational. I wonder if there are any other signs.... ABN

09/11/07 "ICH" -- -- On Sept. 7, National Public Radio reported that Muslims in the Middle East were beginning to believe that the 9-11 attacks on the WTC and Pentagon were false flag operations committed by some part of the U.S. and/ or Israeli government.
It was beyond the imagination of the NPR reporter and producer that there could be any substance to these beliefs, which were attributed to the influence of books by U.S. and European authors sold in bookstores in Egypt.
NPR's concern was that books by Western authors questioning the origin of the 9-11 attack have the undesirable result of removing guilt from Muslims' shoulders.
The NPR reporter, Ursula Lindsey, said that "here in the U.S., most people have little doubt about what happened during the 2001 attacks."
NPR's assumption that the official 9-11 story is the final word is uninformed. Polls show that 36 percent of Americans and more than 50 percent of New Yorkers lack confidence in the 9-11 commission report. Many 9-11 families who lost relatives in the attacks are unsatisfied with the official story.

1) The "official conspiracy theory" (OCT) of 19 hijackers is not supported by the evidence. There are scores of books, articles, websites, and films that show this, and anyone with a modicum of curiosity can easily find the facts.
2) All mainstream US politicians have virtually sworn allegiance to the OCT and not one of them has questioned it, despite these readily available facts.
3) Mainstream US news media has not raised a single serious question about the OCT, despite the testimony of numerous experts in a variety of fields. This testimony should give mainstream journalists ample reason to at least examine the subject (the greatest news story of all time), but none has thus far. In place of real investigative journalism, mainstream news has done nothing more than parrot the OCT.

According to credible sources, writer and scholar, Dr. David Ray Griffin and the 9/11 Truth Movement will be nominated for for the Nobel Peace prize sometime in 2008. Dr. Griffin, author of several books on 9/11, was given this news while on a recent trip to Norway.
Dr. Griffin is currently lecturing in Dublin, Ireland on his most recent book Debunking 9/11 Debunking. He is scheduled to appear on Irish TV on September 11.
Though the 9/11 Truth Movement does not generally recognize any one person as its leader, Dr. Griffin is surely one of its most prominent and active members. A Christian theologian and professor emeritus at the Claremont School of Theology, Dr. Griffin has is renown for the quality of his 9/11 presentations, which rely on a clear and rational exposition of the evidence.

Poll: 9/11 most significant event
Mon, 2007-09-10 18:30 — ABN
Both of these recent polls are interesting. If most of us think that 9/11 was the most significant historical event of our lives, let's do a real investigation and figure out what really happened. As of today, all we really know is what we have been told and that story simply does not square with the evidence. ABN

WASHINGTON, 10 (UPI) -- A Zogby poll indicates Americans consider the terror attacks on New York and Washington the most significant historical events of their lives.

Eighty-one percent -- 90 percent in the East and 75 percent in the West -- said the attacks were the most significant historical events of their lives.

Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks
September 6, 2007
Approaching the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush' and Vice President Cheney's actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives. More than two-thirds also fault the 9/11 Commission for not investigating the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.

The Shock Doctrine Short Film
Mon, 2007-09-10 13:16 — ABN

Good film. 6:45 min. ABN
________________

A Film by Alfonso Cuarón and Naomi Klein, directed by Jonás Cuarón.

"When I finished The Shock Doctrine, I sent it to Alfonso Cuarón because I adore his films and felt that the future he created for Children of Men was very close to the present I was seeing in disaster zones. I was hoping he would send me a quote for the book jacket and instead he pulled together this amazing team of artists -- including Jonás Cuarón who directed and edited -- to make The Shock Doctrine short film. It was one of those blessed projects where everything felt fated." - Naomi Klein

9/11 Timeline: Ten-Page Summary: Verifiable Media Timeline of 9/11
Mon, 2007-09-10 08:35 — ABN

9/11 was one of the most pivotal events in world history. Its impact will be felt for years to come. You owe it to yourself to go beyond the sound bites and the simplified official story. This is an extremely complicated story with numerous players and motives. The 9/11 timeline facts don't all make sense or fit neatly together. It's a story full of espionage, deceit, and lies. But if there are forces out there tricking us, they can only succeed if we, the general public, remain ignorant and passive.

We are limiting our sources on this 9/11 timeline summary to those one might call "mainstream." It's not that one can only trust the mainstream media. In fact, much of the best reporting today is coming from alternative media. But many people are initially very skeptical. Some of the 9/11 timeline facts below may seem very hard to believe. Yet remember that each entry below is reported by respected major media sources and can easily be verified by clicking on the links provided to the original source. After seeing the importance of what’s being hidden from us, you will very likely want to join in working together to build a brighter future.

Latest Bin Laden Video Is a Forgery: All References to Current Events Are Made During Video Freeze
Mon, 2007-09-10 07:54 — ABN

by George Maschke
Sun Sep 9th, 2007

Osama Bin Laden's widely publicized video address to the American people has a peculiarity that casts serious doubt on its authenticity: the video freezes at about 1 minute and 36 58 seconds, and motion only resumes again at 12:30. The video then freezes again at 14:02 remains frozen until the end. All references to current events, such as the 62nd anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Japan, and Sarkozy and Brown being the leaders of France and the UK, respectively, occur when the video is frozen! The words spoken when the video is in motion contain no references to contemporary events and could have been (and likely were) made before the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

9/11 explains the impotence of the antiwar movement

The antiwar movement has proven impotent to stop the war in Iraq despite the fact that the war was initiated on the basis of lies and deception.

The antiwar movement stands helpless to prevent President Bush from attacking Iran or any other country that he might demonize for harboring a future 9/11 threat.

September 11 enabled Bush to take America to war and to keep America at war even though the government’s explanation of the events of September 11 is mired in controversy and disbelieved by a large percentage of the population.

Although the news media’s investigative arm has withered, other entities and individuals continue to struggle with unanswered questions. In the six years since 9/11, numerous distinguished scientists, engineers, architects, intelligence officers, pilots, military officers, air traffic controllers, and foreign dignitaries have raised serious and unanswered questions about the official story line.

...Defending the government’s account, instead of pressing the government for accountability, was liberating for the Bush administration.
