Marine Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford Protests "Truth = Terror" Smear

Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford (USMC, Ret) of Pilots for 9/11 Truth will be my guest on Dynamic Duo tomorrow, Thursday 11/15, 4-6 pm CT on network 4.

Here is his letter protesting the misleading presentation made to the Homeland Security Subcommittee by Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center: :

[from Lt. Col. Shelton Lankford]

I am writing to protest the testimony and Powerpoint presentation by Mr. Mark Weitzman before the committee in which he conflated the presence of sites on the internet that question the U. S. Government-provided explanations for 9/11 with those you identify as associated with terrorism and Islamic extremism.

You very pointedly reference the site established by architects and engineers as an exemplar of such a site. In doing so, you have tarred with a very broad brush thousands of patriotic American citizens who have legitimate questions that have gone unanswered about events of that day and the Official Conspiracy Theory of the 19 alleged hijackers used to explain them.

The American government has yet to offer, as they promised, credible evidence of the guilt of the 19 individuals who were very conveniently identified with the crime, and to this date,
Osama Bin Laden has not been accused of masterminding the attack, according to the FBI and his wanted poster, even though this country has gone to war twice and threatens a third for reasons traceable to the events of that day.

Nor has any explanation been offered for the dancing Israeli citizens who were identified as appearing to celebrate the event in the New Jersey parking lot, some of whom were identified as Mossad agents.

I also invited Mark Weitzman himself, and my colleague from 9/11 and American Empire v.2 Rabbi Michael Lerner, to join me on the radio to discuss the issue. I have received no response from Weitzman. Lerner's response was: "Sorry, but at the moment I don’t have time to get more involved in this discussion." Here is my email to Lerner that elicited that terse response.

Subject: radio invitation re: wiesenthal center smear of 9/11 truth

Dear Rabbi Lerner,

It appears that the Simon Wiesenthal Center is joining Fox News and the usual suspects in attempting to frame the 9/11 truth movement as "terrorist":
Simon Wiesenthal Center presents 9/11 sites alongside radical Jihadist sites to House Hearing on "Terrorism and the Internet"

This is provoking a backlash in the 9/11 truth movement against "Zionists" as evidenced by the comments at

Given your contribution to 9/11 and American Empire v.2 and your dialogue with David Griffin in Tikkun, you are in a good position to help moderate the backlash. I would like to invite you to join me on one of my three radio programs to discuss your 9/11 and American Empire v.2 essay, the Wiesenthal affair, and related topics. Current openings include Tuesday 11/20 9-11 pm CT, Friday 11/23 4-6 pm CT, and Saturday 11/24 6-8 pm CT, and all Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at those times after November 20th. (Schedule: Note that many of my radio guests, such as Cindy Sheehan, Mikey Weinstein, Dave Lindorff, and Steve Bhaerman, do not limit themselves to discussing 9/11. I would love to discuss your work as a whole, including the covenant for spiritual renewal and the larger effort to help religion become a positive rather than a negative political force.

Thank you for your good work and I look forward to hearing from you.


PS Below is my invitation to Mark Weitzman and the SWC.

Dear Mr. Weitzman,

As co-editor of 9/11 and American Empire: Christians, Jews and Muslims Speak Out and co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth ( ) I would like to invite you, or another SWC spokesperson, to discuss the topics raised in your C-Span presentation on one of my three radio programs. Current openings include Tuesday 11/20 9-11 pm CT, Friday 11/23 4-6 pm CT, and Saturday 11/24 6-8 pm CT.

Thank you for considering this and I look forward to hearing from you.

Coordinator, MUJCA-NET:

Thank you for responding to

Thank you for responding to Mr. Weitzman's blatant attack against American citizens concerned with bringing justice to the massacre of 9/11. You can always count on a Marine.

I'm going to do a Powerpoint Presentation

showing that if we waterboard this joker long enough we can make him dance with Mukasey in a New Jersey parking garage.....but don't tell Mikey Chertoff, his Mom wont like it.

Soon we all will be "enemy combatants".......our assets seized, our haybus all kor pissed away....or we can demand all our Reps get Conyers to act on the articles of IMPEACHMENT, SITTIN ON HIS MOTHER FUCKING DESK

9/11 TRUTH does not equal TERRORISM!

"On Tuesday, November 6, 2007, a House Homeland Security Subcommittee had a hearing on "Terrorism and the Internet".* The hearing featured presentations from several groups, including a former employee of the RAND Corporation, and Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. The hearing was chaired by Democratic Rep. Jane Harman, and ranking Republican, Rep. Dave Reichert."

"Toward the end of the hearing, Weitzman rolls out a PowerPoint presentation that presents a few 9/11 truth sites sandwiched in between websites that offer training in terrorist tactics, and a website that glorified the attack of 9/11. Among the websites presented under the heading "Internet: Incubator of 9/11 Conpiracies and Disinformation", are Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and other sites, such as Killtown's, who brought this Hearing to our attention."

It's sick these attempts to equate 9/11 TRUTH with terrorism!

It's important to counter these tactics! It's becomng an upside down world with our leaders inhabiting a delusional oxygen-deprived dark place! It's the twilight before the darkness of insanity!

You're fine if you're a facist corporatist hiding behind a veil of capitalism while much of your cash flow is, indeed, illegal. It's okay to sacrifice lives if it helps the finances.

However, if you seek truth you may face a tribunal and a one way ticket on Con Air or a boxcar to a FEMA camp!

Wow! Where's has America gone? I couldn't agree more with articles of impeachment on Cheney! I'm surprised, it wasn't tabled! I'm still not convinced it will amount to more than another dog and pony show?

Is it just another limited hangout tactic to occupy us while a creeping encirclement of laws deprive us of more freedoms? It's not delusional to ask if we're not already under Marshall Law? It would seem to explain our government's behavior?

It's gotten scary and please resist them and....

...don't believe them!

Please CC all future correspondence to

Jane Harman.

She is behind the subcommittee hearings and is principle author of HR 1955. She also needs to hear from the truth community.

RRREMA=research, realize, react, educate, motivate, activate

The reality is, the 911truth

The reality is, the 911truth movement has reached Russia and the rest of the world and the neo cons are running scared thanks to the internet, the whole world now knows who the real terrorists are.. Their time is up.

not limited to 9/11 truth

[double post]

not limited to 9/11 truth

Glen Beck says all Ron Paul supporters are terrorists

So basically

anything that threatens the ruling party is labeled a terrorist. Talk about fear mongering! People have got to wake up to this BS sooner or later. It's so obvious.

Yeah well it has been "this obvious"

for about 5 years now and I doubt many more are going to wake up, we are at about 45-50% of the country right now knows that this administration is guilty of election fraud, war crimes, crimes against humanity, mass murder and Treason just to name a few.
About 25% of this country is completely unreachable nut jobs in total denial, that only leaves maybe 20% or so that is even possible to wake up.
Problem is this, already 50% of the country at least 120+ Million people KNOW this and what is being done about it?
If that final 20% wake up then what? Just 20% more sitting on their ass doing nothing.

We could end this shit within 72 hours if everybody that knows what is going on just stood up and acted.

Rep. Jane Harman needs to hear the truth

Please contact her office and make them aware of the outrageousness of labeling 9/11 truth groups as terrorists. This is beyond ridiculous and needs to be countered immediately and vociferously.

I hope that the LA and San Diego groups will make her office(s) a focus of some future actions and alert the media to get some serious pressure going on her. Rep. Harman's El Segundo office is relatively near the water, so perhaps it can be part of a LA Tea Party on Sunday, December 16; a weekday sit-in might make the local/national news as well.

We should also seriously consider starting a legal defense fund, as ae911truth and others are clearly going to be targeted and we need to be ready to counter any quasi-legal actions taken against truth groups and prominent individuals.

Keep up the great work, brothers and sisters!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

You would get more response

talking to a stray cat than talking to anyone involved in Congress, these people are clearly complicit and have no intentions of doing anything about it regardless how many emails they get.

"Legal" defense fund may or may not have much effect either because we are dealing with unconstitutional war criminals that do not abide by any law, they can do as they please. Probably lock up the lawyer as a "terrorist" also.

The only way this nightmare is ever going to stop is when a flat minimum of 150 Million Americans stand up and forcibly MAKE IT happen.
