And why has Dan never mentioned the overwhelming role played by the CFR within U.S. politics?
(Perhaps because he's a member.)
It always cheers me up to see a post by Aidan Monaghan because it tells me that the FEMA camps haven't been opened yet.
I like that one!
because he's one of my favorite people in the movement!
Keep up the great work!
(How about a group called "gadflys for 9/11 truth"?)
The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.
of JFK! Do NOT truth him about anything! He is an accomplished fraud!
If Rather & others had done their job to expose the JFK inside job, instead of being complicit with it, the 9/11 inside job may never have occurred!
Dan Rather, at the time an unknown newscaster from a small market Texas TV station, viewed the Zapruder film, then described it to America on the CBS network. As this recording of that broadcast shows, Rather lied to all of America in claiming that the head shot pushed John F. Kennedy's head forward. Rather's meteoric rise to network status and stardom soon followed. When the Zapruder film was finally shown publicly, during Jim Garrison's trial of CIA agent Clay Shaw, Rather's lie was revealed for all to see.

He "mishandled" the Bush AWOL thing, too;
I used to think he was set up.
Zapruder-frames 311-315 clearly shows JFK's head being pushed forward before the second, frontal headshot .
All the zapruder-frames ("sprocket-holes" included) are available here in decent quality (122MB) :
If you have GIMP (or photoshop) you can convert those frames and make a little animation.
The driver is also worth noticing, very strange behaviour indeed for a body-guard . You don't really see in the Zapruder-film
how he almost brings the limo to a complete stop before the second, frontal headshot but the Nix-film shows it .
Dan Rather worked for CBS.. CBS works for the people who own the CIA, NSA, DHS ...
I think he didn't want to be a puppet for the crazy neo-cons and see what happened, CFR-member or not .

"God bless America." Interesting. Next time, ask him whatever happened to that van "full of explosives" on the George Washington Bridge he reported.
“On the altar of God, I swear eternal hostility against all forms of tyranny over the mind of man."--Thomas Jefferson
In his farewell statement on retiring from CBS, Dan Rather displayed understanding of the powerful forces that control the media. His central theme was that media needs to face evil head-on, closing with the exhortation, "Courage!" I believe he stands in opposition to media complicity in the injustices of the NWO agenda. However, he is an elite media player who is aware of much more than he can safely let on. His links to powerful elites are strong and any break with them condemns him to tremendous risks. No wonder he plays it safe. The corporate / military / banking power establishment that caused 9/11 has probably shown Dan Rather a face that fills him with fear. Why he would utter "God Bless America" just before his hurried exit, as he uttered "Courage" before his last hurried exit.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
what does he have to loose by revealing the truth? Rather could redeem himself somewhat, & clear his conscience (if he has one).
Wife, brother/sister, children, grandchildren, close friends? "Accidents" can happen.
Don't mean to be excusing Mr. Rather, who I agree could have and should have told the truth about JFK but didn't -- and advanced to fame and a multi-million dollar annual salary as a result. But who knows where his heart really lies and what he might like to tell us now if it was safe for him to do so. He knows much much more than we do. I wonder about his "insurance" policy -- most guys like him have a dossier squirreled away somewhere.
Great VIDEO Temple911Truth. I haven't seen anyone else get Dan Rather on tape, so Congratulations. I enjoyed seeing that.
We are going to get another break. That's just the way it is. It's worth it to keep pushing.
I think at this point we should just thank him for his accurate observations and tell him that we are working to make it safe for him to speak the truth he knows.
Clearly, he has been threatened into silence and has pretty much admitted it.
From here on out, let's not harass the guy too much, please. It won't bear fruit and we'll just look like stalkers.
Good work here, guys, you saved me a trip to the Minneapolis Media Conference to ask him these same questions. Those living close enough should still go as it is any excellent opportunity for outreach, Carol Brouillet will be there.
Or Patriots. Or Americans. Or Concerned Citizens.
We can't be afraid of their labels. It's going to happen.
Mr. Rather didn't bomb the buildings, he didn't make NORAD stand down.
He made accurate observations on the day of 9/11 that will stand for eternity and was targeted and removed for making them.
Have some compassion and give the man a break. We have better uses of our time and energy.
Hopefully, when we break this wide open he will tell all he knows. Until then, we will only drive him underground and fuel his fear, is that what you want?
Truth --> Reconciliation---> Justice-->Peace
We have bigger fish to fry and fry them we must.
Keep up the great work Temple9/11Truth!
..."God bless America"
TRAITOR! Don't give me the excuse about him being well connected and the elites coming after him or his family. The exact same thing could happen to Charlie Sheen, Rosie, Jesse Ventura or Daniel Sunjata. "Accidents" could happen to them and their families and that didn't stop them from having the courage to come forward and speak out. Dan Rather is a coward and a traitor.
"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government." -The Declaration of Independence, 1776
Let us celebrate those who do without condemning those who don't.
Truth without compassion will be a very cold victory, my friend.
Let's get BUSY, brothers and sisters!
...the guy is a journalist for crying out loud if anyone has the responsibility to speak out and ask the hard questions it is him. Simply saying "God bless America" when asked this question to me accounts to treason because we depend on journalists to provide this service so that democracy can survive. And because Dan Rather is so often portrayed as a fearless investigative journalist. I understand if not everyone has that courage, I really do, but him, in his position, seeing what he saw on 9/11, with these quotes from him on the record, he should have the courage. That he doesn't, that he shies away and responds simply with God bless America, tells me everything I need to know about Dan Rather and what side he is on.
clearly he doesn't and that is very unfortunate.
Thanks to Temple9/11Truth it is now also quite clear.
I know that you are angry and frustrated and I would hope that he could find the necessary courage, but he obviously can't at this point in time and we need to acknowledge that and move on.
Hounding Dan Rather in public for his lack of courage will do us and the cause of truth no good, it will only damage us in the eyes of the people we want to influence.
You can see that, yes?
If we keep dividing the world into "us and them" we will only perpetuate the paradigm that prohibits peace. Is that what you really want?
I hope that you and yours are well.
The truth shall set us free. Love is he only way forward.
...however I never called for him to be hounded, I only denounced him as a traitor. Hounding Dan Rather will accomplish nothing for the movement. We should hope to find more people with the courage enough to speak out. I hope things are well with you and yours as well.
...and now to see him hiding behind statements such as, "God Bless America," and "that wasn't an accurate statement," makes me nauseated. I have to agree with Knowar, Rather needs to take off the Depends.
You suspect that he's been warned about his statements of 9/11 and the need to place the good of America above everything else--supposedly--including the truth! In the end, if this is the case, he is a coward.
Dan Rather could, at least, be truthful at this late stage? and as Columbo said, redeem himself.
...don't believe him!
My experience asking Dan Rather about his coverage of the collapse of WTC7
As of about ten months or so ago, UTPA still claims they "lost" the "tapes" of the Dan Rather presentation and that the portion of my confronting him about WTC7 was not recorded.
Considering that I have gained much experience attending political events at UTPA over the past year and a half or so, I'm quite sure the staff that I spoke to there is lying about the existence of the missing "tapes" just as I believe they have at least mislead me on many other similar issues. (As if a hugely funded university like UTPA does not have the capacity or technology to digitize their recordings.)
I've come to the conclusion that ultimately, all UTPA is really interested in is maintaining their money grubbing status quo business as usual policies that never get at the real truth of anything except that which is on the whole PC and profitable for the university and its image.
What I would really like to see Carol ask Dan next time is why he keeps dodging this particular question about WTC7 and 9/11. He NEVER seems to want to give any kind of detailed explanation about his position. And I agree that it is strange because all he ever complains about is how journalists never ask the tough questions anymore. Talk about double-think.
Good job guys!!!
..thanks for the link to your sincere confrontation with Dan Rather! It's a good read--interesting. It does impress as if there's a strange self-imposed prohibition on Dan Rather's part to even acknowledge a grasp of the 9/11 Truth view of controlled demolition? Is this feigned ignorance to avoid a response?
...don't believe them!
Whoever the cop was, he spoke with authority, respect for both sides, and humanity.
Bad journalist. So much for the fourth estate. Anyway, he can't take back his real-time observation - he's just denying now that the building was in fact demolished as he observed at the time.
I would like to hear why (although I doubt we will). The question was asked well, presented with respect, and just further damns the corporate media blockade that has stonewalled the growth of 9/11 Truth - or has at least tried. It's fun to watch the movement grow. It's not fun to watch the people I grew up watching on the news lie, worm their way out of questions, and attempt to sway public opinion in favor of our ridiculously corrupt government.
Great job Philly 9/11 Truth!
Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.
The Eleventh Day of Every Month
Dan Rather doesn't want to be "necklaced," so to speak.
When he made the "necklace" comment, many may've naively assumed that he was talking about his colleagues, or even himself in the past tense. But no, he was alluding to himself in the then and there and thereafter. Project Mockingbird agents aren't ever cut loose from their duty to fool the public, and their lives and those of their families and loved ones remain permanent collateral.
Walter Cronkite may well've been shedding real tears when he announced on national television that JFK had died, but he still knew he was always obliged to do his duty, which came to mean maintaining the official "lone gunman" line for the rest of his days. He has even obligingly narrated several propaganda "documentaries" about the assassination.
