The "Jersey Girls" Called For Philip Zelikow's Resignation

Some of you may have seen the news regarding Philip Zelikow. If you watched Keith Olbermann tonight, you were in for a treat. During the time of the 9/11 Commission, the "Jersey Girls" called for the resignation of Philip Zelikow. As you can see from this clip from 9/11: Press For Truth:

Essentially, The "original members of the 9/11 Truth Movement" "disreputed" the 9/11 Commission long ago Mr. Holland.

I see this...

As so huge. They called for his resignation, and he refused, and they were assured that he was ok, and that he would recuse himself from certain aspects of the investigation. Now, their fears have been justified. The 9/11 Commission has been discredited (again) in one fell swoop.

By the way, here's another "disreputing" by one of us "crackpot conspiracy theorists" named Bryan Sacks released on November 28th, 2005.

"It is clear that [Zelikow] should never have been permitted to be a member of the commission, since it is the mandate of the commission to identify the source of failures. We can now see that trail would lead directly to the staff director himself."

— Kristen Breitweiser

Edit: Please tell me someone recorded Olbermann tonight.

Edit Part II: It appears Kyle "scooped" me on this.

Edit Part III: I wonder if the "debunkers" are going to take Zelikow's word for it. He's SO damn trustworthy.

Edit Part IV: Michael Isikoff does his rendition of "everyone is to blame, therefore no one is to blame" as opposed to the families' rendition which was "everyone is to blame, therefore everyone is to blame".

Edit Part V: Can we have a real investigation now? An investigation that 1) investigates the "investigation" and its' "investigators" 2) investigates every possible aspect of the 9/11 attacks 3) has family members from the original Steering Committee on the investigative panel as well as what may be considered "9/11 Experts" (Paul Thompson, and a few others come to mind) 4) has full subpoena power with no questions asked 5) is not stopped in its' tracks by words like, "National Security", "Classified", and "States Secrets Privilege" 6) does not have anyone from the "Beltway" involved 7) will hold anyone responsible for blatant criminality accountable. Please?

On AM Philly Mainstream Radio someone referred listeners to a website with "9/11 Press for Truth" FRONT AND CENTER ON THAT WEBSITE . . . .

But, for the most part, I've seen so-called 9/11 truthers attack this person and his motivations.

He's on mainstream radio saying 9/11 truthers are HEROES OF OUR TIME . . . yet I mostly see 9/11 "truthers attack this author.

He recommended people go to to learn more, which center pieces most 9/11 truth websites . . . . yet I mostly see attacks here on him and his book from so-called 9/11 truthers . . .

Just what the hell is wrong with this picture??


Are you asking me? I haven't attacked Steve Alten. I don't necessarily like the fact that every one of your posts has something to do with Steve Alten's new book. Essentially being spam. If you want people to purchase the book, would you rather the choir (us) do so, or the "uninitiated?" I can almost guarantee the choir is going to buy it. Why not post on non-9/11 truth sites about the book? Just a suggestion.

Zelikow was 'imagining transforming events' in '98

Yes, let's investigate the investigators--most certainly including the fact that one with the initials 'P.Z.' had quite a bit to say (along with his co-authors at the time) about the prospects for 'transforming events' of 'catastrophic terrorism' in the U.S. three years prior to 9/11.

I emailed Keith O. the Press for Truth/Zelikow Should Resign You Tube video earlier tonight to make his job a little easier. Though, like you, I bet he's already aware of it, and, of course, the entire 9/11 coverup.

Perhaps we should all email

Perhaps we should all email him at once and tell him the time is NOW. I have done this several times as he dances around the issue.

Thanks Lullaby.

Why the sudden MSM interest in the 9/11 Commission?

Why the sudden MSM interest in the 9/11 Commission?

Why is it that this recent book on the 9/11 Commission gets media coverage, but almost nothing else has? There are far more glaring issues with the 9/11 commission report beyond Karl Rove having interfered with the report. It was already well understood for a long time with 9/11 truth circles that the 9/11 commission report was a Bush sponsored white-wash/fantasy effort deliberately obfuscating the responsibility of Dick Cheney for the attacks.

9/11 Commission Deception, Cheney’s Actions on 9/11, and Why He Should Testify Under Oath
Prof. Peter Dale Scott

"The 9/11 Commission Report is an example of concerted cover-up, partly by omissions, and just as importantly by its cherry-picking of evidence to create impressions that are in fact authoritatively disputed, and in some cases probably not true. There are many examples of cherry-picking and contrived simulations of fact. More importantly, there is a consistent pattern in this: to minimize Cheney’s responsibility for what happened that day."

I guess no one cares about that young man in the bunker. Is it too hard to ask what those orders were? Come on Olbermann, you can do it. Still... better than nothing.

"Why the sudden MSM interest in the 9/11 Commission?"

It may be the path of least resistance, this issue ripe at just the right moment, or a 7 year pattern of lies with this final exposed corruption that broke the camel's back? Or maybe they just can't take it anymore . . . and they're shouting out the window.

Newsweek: Untold Story of the 9/11 Probe

Over at Newsweek...

"Enough Blame for All
New book reveals clashes behind the 9/11 probe

This is was a big deal

over on DU at the time. (before they built the DUngeon).

First Bush tried to install Henry Kissinger.

Of course, the outrage was too much even for a 'popular' president. Besides, this was just another Bush bait and switch, in order to get the guy they really wanted in there, Philip Zelikow.

The Jersey Girls and every one else following the story had fits about this. But of course, the corporate M$M, ignored the outcry and Congress couldn't bend over backward far enough to give Bush/Cheney everything they wanted.

Maybe this time around will make a difference.

Why should we believe a damn thing Hamilton says?

It would be nice if Isikoff and his pals would explain why we should accept Lee Hamilton as a honest broker. This is simply more 'above the fray' media framing based on nothing but authoritarianism (people in positions of power should be trusted simply because they hold powerful positions). Absurd.

Note that Isikoff used the term 'conspiracy theorist' in relation to anyone who finds Zelikow's conduct suspicious. More authoritarianism. Why is Zelikow's patriotism not up for review? Who in their right mind would overlook his outrageous conflicts of interest and suspicious conduct?

Too many journalists seem to believe they are in the propaganda business.

Groups call for the resignation of Sept. 11 commission director


By Chris Strohm March 22, 2004

Public interest groups are demanding the immediate resignation of the director of the federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, just as the commission prepares to hold high-profile hearings this week with senior officials from the Bush and Clinton administrations.

The 9-11 Family Steering Committee and 9-11 Citizens Watch, two separate groups, are demanding the resignation of Philip Zelikow, executive director of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, after information surfaced over the weekend that he participated in Bush administration briefings prior to Sept. 11 on the threat al Qaeda posed to the country.

"We believe that the very integrity of the commission is at stake here, and that he should resign immediately," Kyle Hence, co-founder of Citizens Watch, said Monday.

On Saturday, the Family Steering Committee wrote a letter to the commission arguing that Zelikow has a conflict of interest because he could potentially be held culpable for failing to heed warnings about al Qaeda prior to Sept. 11.

"It is clear that [Zelikow] should never have been permitted to be a member of the commission, since it is the mandate of the commission to identify the source of failures," the committee wrote. "It is now apparent why there has been so little effort to assign individual culpability. We now can see that trail would lead directly to the staff director himself."

Zelikow was a member of the team that helped with the Bush administration transition to office. When he became executive director of the commission, he recused himself from participating in any part of the investigation that dealt with the time he served on the Bush transition team.

Critics have previously called for Zelikow to resign because they believed he had at least an appearance of a conflict of interest. He co-wrote a book in 1995 with Condoleezza Rice, who is now Bush's national security adviser. Additionally, only Zelikow and commission member Jamie Gorelick are permitted to read classified intelligence reports known as the presidential daily briefs in their entirety.

Information that Zelikow participated in intelligence briefings on al Qaeda before Sept. 11 surfaced over the weekend in interviews with the government's former counterterrorism czar, Richard Clarke, who resigned last summer after 30 years of public service. Clarke served in four administrations as part of the National Security Council. He was the counterterrorism czar for former President Clinton, served on the transition team when Bush came into office and remained as a senior counterterrorism official under the Bush administration.

On Saturday, Clarke told the New York Times that he gave briefings on the threat posed by al Qaeda to Rice; Stephen Hadley, now Rice's deputy; and Zelikow when he was part of the transition team from December 2000 to January 2001.

Clarke told CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday that the Bush administration failed to heed his warnings in the months leading up to Sept. 11, and then eagerly tried to blame Iraq for the attacks in the aftermath when no connection existed.

On Monday, Clarke's new book, Against All Enemies: Inside the White House's War on Terror--What Really Happened, was released. In it he forcefully criticizes the Bush administration's efforts to defend the country from terrorist attacks.

Al Felzenberg, spokesman for the 9-11 commission, said Monday that no new charges have been leveled that would cause the commission to ask Zelikow to resign. Felzenberg reiterated that Zelikow recused himself from parts of the investigation that deal with the time he served on the transition team.

"The commission finds the director's recusal sufficient," Felzenberg said. "I don't see a single charge that has been made that would cause the commission to change its view."

Felzenberg said Zelikow was not responsible for making policy decisions or implementing recommendations during his time on the transition team. He added that the commission has a policy regarding conflicts of interest and a process in which complaints should be vetted.

The commission is planning two days of public hearings starting Tuesday. The hearings will consist of testimony from high-level officials from the Bush and Clinton administrations, with a focus on counterterrorism.

Scheduled to testify on Tuesday are Secretary of State Colin Powell and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, as well as their counterparts in the Clinton administration, Madeleine Albright and William Cohen. Scheduled to testify on Wednesday are CIA Director George Tenet; Samuel Berger, former assistant to Clinton for national security affairs; and Clarke. The commission announced Monday that Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage also will testify Wednesday to beef up the administration's position on counterterrorism.

The Family Steering Committee and Citizens Watch want Bush and Clinton, Vice President Dick Cheney and former Vice President Al Gore, and Rice to testify publicly under oath. Rice testified in February before a closed session of the commission.

Citizens Watch and family members of Sept. 11 victims held a press conference Monday to demand the commission provide transparency, accountability and sworn public testimony from the highest government officials.

Hence said the commission has so far experienced "a pattern of stonewalling and slow walking" by the White House and federal agencies, such as the Federal Aviation Administration and North American Aerospace Defense Command.

"To date, no one in government--not a single government official--has been held directly accountable for the apparent and as yet unexplained simultaneous, massive, across-the-board failure of every single defensive and intelligence measure this country had established," Hence said.

Citizens Watch also launched an advertising campaign Monday demanding that Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Gore and Rice testify publicly under oath before the commission. The group is running billboard advertisements in the Washington metro rail system for four weeks, as well as quarter-page ads in The Washington Post.
