New England United AntiWar Conference

This is a good opportunity to unite with a peace movement to get to the root of the so-called War On Terror, finally covering the false flag operation used to justify such dark measures as empire building. Thanks to Lenny for organizing the 9/11 part, and working to break through the barriers between truth and justice to unite for peace.

Conference announcement:

Multiple wars of empire are being waged or promoted by Washington, in the name of a global war against terrorism. The occupations and wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Palestine being waged by, or with the aid of, the U.S. government, are expanding in number and deadliness. New U.S. bases are being set up in Colombia, and in Honduras, the State Department has backed away from its support for the return of President Zelaya.

Meanwhile, the "War on Terror" is being used as a smokescreen to justify the expansion of US wars and occupations, curtail civil liberties, promote the racist scapegoating of Arabs and Muslims, and drain resources needed for domestic social programs, including health care, jobs, education and the environment.

What is behind these interventions? What links them? If Iraq was about securing control of oil, what is at stake for corporate America in
Afghanistan and Pakistan? In Honduras? In Colombia? What do the histories of empire and imperialist foreign policy tell us?

The recent antiwar actions on October 17 in Boston and elsewhere called for immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq, and for an end to U.S. support for the occupation of Palestine. They were built by inclusive decision-making bodies that welcomed contributions by all, and acted on majority or consensus.

Come to the NEU conference on January 30 to share analyses and to map regional campaigns to strengthen the antiwar movement. Help plan for national and local spring antiwar mobilizations, and for efforts to persuade the Congress and the White House to turn away from war.

New England United conference -

A GREAT Opportunity to distribute Real Intelligence

in the form of DVDs, information packets etc.


"Core of Corruption"
"The New American Century"
"Blueprint for Truth"
"In Their Own Words"

That is what I would give out.
Last weekend our group gave away 2,000 DVDs at two Martin Luther King Parades.
Probably around 50 to the police, a dozen or more to local politicians, ONE TO TOM LEPPERT,
the rest to people who were EAGER to learn the TRUTH.

mailing address (& correspondence) outreach

Jonathan, thanks for your endorsement of the conference. FYI, NEU is a broad network of antiwar activists and has not taken a position on the 9/11 issue.

But at least [you are] acknowledging the issue, to look at what is being justified by the Obama administration for expanding the war on terror in his most foreign policy.

it has taken a while because, i know, it is a hot topic, and so was the fraud regarding the kennedy assassination. i am glad peter dale scott will be there..

and if i can make it.. or if i can mail you..

i have a dvd called dark legacy, about bush sr. and jfk's murder..

i think that background is useful for learning how the intel group expanded
into a coup d'etat and cover-up to control all presidents.. for this relates to that
famous warning of the "military-industrial-complex" by president eisenhower
at his farewell address. the bill moyers '87 film comes to mind.. too..
if links from email don't work.. all can be accessed at

thanks again.. for your help in connecting the peace movement with this
critical hot issue.. i hope my online resources can be helpful..

NY Times Acknowledges CIA Deceptions"

The Constitution In Crisis
"The Secret Government is an interlocking network of official functionaries, spies,
mercenaries, ex-generals, profiteers and superpatriots, who, for a variety of motives,
operate outside the legitimate institutions of government. Presidents have turned to them
when they can't win the support of the Congress or the people, creating that unsupervised
power so feared by the framers of our Constitution. Just imagine that William Casey's
dream came true. Suppose the enterprise grew into a super-secret, self-financing, self-
perpetuating organization. Suppose they decided on their own to assassinate Gorbachev
or the leader of white South Africa. Could a President control them and what if he became
the enterprise's public enemy Number One? Who would know? Who would say no?"
-- Bill Moyers

Flyby News endorses and appreciates this conference..
It offers hope that peace activists are working to consider
9/11 as a false flag operation to scare people in support
for empire building that provides more of a reason for
spreading terrorism.. than providing any real security..

Another Milestone.

This is actually another milestone event, in that 9/11 truth is coordinating an event in conjunction with the top NE Peace/Anti-war groups. There is a real symbiosis here.

Hats off to Lenny Mather for his tireless activism in the Boston area, and for being the one who brought together Peter Dale Scott, Paul Zarembka and Barrie Zwicker. "Peter, Paul, and Barrie" as he affectionately dubbed them.

Lenny contacted me last month about this and we spoke at length on the phone. I regret that I will be unable to attend this event, but trust that the precedent set here will continue to flourish. To quote Lenny:

"The 9/11 Truth Movement is the leading edge of the Anti-War Movement."

Send this to peaceniks!

I've been passing this around, has the potential to be very effective in bridging the gap:

9/11 Truth: the Challenge to the Peace Movement

An excellent 36 minute presentation on 9/11 Truth as a challenge to the overall peace movement by Dr. Graeme MacQueen. Please forward this information far and wide.

Watch the video in 4 parts at:

Some items discussed:

* So-called 9/11 "conspiracy theories" were not stories put out years later but was actually suppressed evidence reported on the day of the event.

* Determining the specific details of what actually happened on 9/11 is not as important as recognizing the official 9/11 story as provably false.

* Historical record of deceptions that begin wars, known as "Trigger Events" or "False Flag Events".

* How the truth about any event that begins a war should be of the utmost importance to any peace movement.
