We Were Lied To About 9/11 - Episode 5 - Coleen Rowley


Coleen Rowley grew up in a small town in northeast Iowa. She obtained a B.A. degree in French from Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa and then attended the College of Law at the University of Iowa and graduated with honors in 1980 also passing the Iowa Bar Exam that summer.

In January of 1981, Rowley was appointed a Special Agent with the FBI and initially served in the Omaha, Nebraska and Jackson, Mississippi Divisions. In 1984 she was assigned to the New York Office and for over 6 years worked on Italian organized crime and Sicilian heroin drug investigations. During this time Rowley also served three separate temporary duty assignments in the Paris, France Embassy and Montreal Consulate.

In 1990 Rowley was transferred to Minneapolis where she assumed the duties of "Chief Division Counsel" which entailed oversight of the Freedom of Information, Forfeiture, Victim-Witness and Community Outreach Programs as well as providing regular legal and ethics training to FBI Agents of the Division and some outside police training.

In May of 2002 Rowley brought some of the pre 9-11 lapses to light and testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee about some of the endemic problems facing the FBI and the intelligence community. Rowley's memo to FBI Director Robert Mueller in connection with the Joint Intelligence Committee's Inquiry led to a two year long Department of Justice Inspector General investigation. She was one of three whistleblowers chosen as persons of the year by TIME magazine.

In April 2003, following an unsuccessful and highly criticized attempt to warn the Director and other administration officials about the dangers of launching the invasion of Iraq, Rowley stepped down from her (GS-14) legal position to go back to being a (GS-13) FBI Special Agent. She retired from the FBI at the end of 2004 and now speaks publicly to various groups, ranging from school children to business/professional/civic groups, on two different topics: ethical decision-making and "civil liberties and effective investigation."


Thank You for Your Heroism Coleen

God Bless ALL who have the courage to speak the truth.

Thanks Jon, Excellent show.

God Bless You Jon.



Really, you guys, the blow

Really, you guys, the blow back BS has got to stop. You should know by now that it's purposeful, not Incompetent. You both need to read The Lone Gladio. Cindy Sheehan did. Do you not know of Gladio Plan B? When you say you'd tell Obama that this really doesn't work, I feel like I'm listening to a child. Grow up and look this bad reality straight in the face. Sheesh! PNAC Rebuilding America's Defenses even spells it out for you. And you know this! So what's with the act?!!!


Great interview of Sibel about The Lone Gladio.

The alt-media must be challenged to learn about Gladio Plan B. A destabilization program run out of an office in the Pentagon. 9/11 was not blowback. It was a Gladio Plan B operation. Sibel has been telling us this for almost two years directly. Now, with The Lone Gladio, there's no turning away anymore.

We're in a fight for basic human decency and we aren't going to win unless we face reality. Please stop parroting blowback Incompetence bologna. Thanks.


No one in this "movement" has promoted Sibel Edmonds moreso than me over the years. That's a fact. I used to get a lot of shit for it too from people in the "movement." I couldn't control Coleen's response to my question. I just wrote it. Tomorrow I'm interviewing Lorie Van Auken about the 9/11 Commission.
