Project Censored Covers Active Thermitic Material, WTC7 and AE911Truth

Some news is just too hot to cover and Project Censored for 34 years have been exposing the most under-covered censored news stories of the year with their annual release of the Censored yearbooks., Censored 2010 will be available for shipping for pre-orders in early September.


Censored stories even include valid academic studies completed by university professors and scientific professional researchers. It appears that certain topics are simply forbidden inside the mainstream corporate media today. To openly cover these news stories would stir up questions regarding “inconvenient truths” that many in the U.S. power structure want to avoid.

For example, current research indicates that public schools in the United States are more segregated today than they have been in more than four decades. According to a new civil rights report, published at the University of California, Los Angeles, schools in the U.S. are 44 percent non-white, and minorities are rapidly emerging as the majority of public school students in the United States. Latinos and blacks, the two largest minority groups, attend schools more segregated today than during the civil rights movement 40 years ago. Millions of non-white students are locked into “dropout factory” high schools, where huge percentages do not graduate. The most severe segregation in public schools occurs in the Western states, including California—not in the South, as many people believe. Most non-white schools are segregated by poverty as well as race. Schools in low-income communities remain highly unequal in terms of funding, qualified teachers, and curriculum.

Other taboo stories include civilian death rates in Iraq and questions on 9/11. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and a professional survey company in Great Britain, Opinion Research Business (ORB) report that the United States is directly responsible for over one million Iraqi deaths since our invasion six and a half years ago. In a January 2008 report, ORB reported that, “survey work confirms our earlier estimate that over 1,000,000 Iraqi citizens have died as a result of the conflict which started in 2003…. We now estimate that the death toll between March 2003 and August 2007 is likely to have been of the order of 1,033,000.” A 2006 Johns Hopkins study confirmed that U.S. aerial bombing in civilian neighborhoods caused over a third of these deaths and that over half the deaths are directly attributable to U.S. forces. Iraqi civilian death levels in the summer of 2009 likely now exceed 1.2 million.

Then there is 9/11 -- former Brigham Young University physics professor Dr. Steven E. Jones and some 700 scientific professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, and physics have now concluded that the official explanation for the collapse of the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings is implausible according to laws of physics. Especially troubling is the collapse of WTC 7, a 47-story building that was not hit by planes, yet dropped in its own “footprint” in 6.6 seconds in the same manner as a controlled demolition. To support this theory, Jones and eight other scientists conducted chemical research on the dust from the World Trade Centers. Their research results were published in a peer-reviewed scientific periodical “Open Chemical Physics Journal,” Volume 2, 2009. The authors write, “We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.” Thermite is a pyrotechnic composition of a metal powder and a metal oxide, which produces an aluminothermic reaction known as a thermite reaction and is used in controlled demolitions of buildings.

Each of these hot news stories is based on solid scholarly research. These stories represent the failure of the corporate media in the United States to keep the American people democratically informed on important issues. This lack of coverage of critical and potentially political news stories is what many thousands of people in the United States are now calling a Truth Emergency. This Truth Emergency is being addressed daily by Project Censored at our web sites featuring independent news sources,, and our daily blog at, Benchmark each of these sites on you desktop and stay abreast of the current news not covered in the corporate media. The most important effort that needs to be make in freeing the media is to support independent media with regular financial gifts. Project Censored is just finishing our summer fund drive where some hundred donors have contributed $8,500 so far. Please do you part to free the media and build democracy.

The Nano Thermite story

The Nano Thermite story should be at the very top of the list of censored stories. It is a stack of dynamite that no on in the mainstream will touch with a fifty foot pole.


Let's hope it's up there, no, let's demand that it be up there.
Michael Jackson's remains are more important anyway.....


Peter Phillips and Project Censored should be applauded for having the guts to cover this and other 911-related stories. As I understand it, Norman Soloman actually resigned from the panel when Philips insisted on covering Steven Jones' work for the first time. They stuck to their guns and did the right thing. Along with ICH and Dissident Voice, which have also broached the great taboo, Project Censored puts the rest of the "alternative media" to shame.

I applaud them. I'd give you two up votes for your comment..

if I could.

This subject on Project Censored is unique among all others.....

Can anyone else think of any subject or issue ever covered by Project Censored that was actually censored in all of the alternative media?
In, say, the last ten years, have the alternative media sources actually ignored any other issue completely?

Something is going on here, more than usual.
There is a purposeful and collective censorship across the media about 9/11 truth.
How is it being done?

DemocracyNow!, CommonDreams, Alternet,, MotherJones, Counterpunch, the Nation, Zmag, and others. How is it happening? Is it threats, or pressure? Is it the threat of taking away foundational support money? There are many foundations supporting these media outlets that have at the top of their organizations the very same people who have benefitted from 9/11.

I don't know. But it is truly an enigma how all of the sources have completely ignored the 9/11 story. And that is a shame. Because if these organizations had taken up this issue, like they have taken up the issues about torture, WMD, the illegality of the wars and occupations, Blackwater, wiretapping, and other hot topics, we may have begun to get the word out to many millions, and that pressure may have gotten the msm to feel they need to cover it also, as with these other issues. What could have happened then is anyone's guess, but I feel there would have been a groundswell of questioning and anger and demands from the American people.

What I am saying is that the alternative media is responsible for the continued ignorance throughout our nation of the truth of 9/11, and ALL that has come from 9/11 since. I feel that people like Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzales, Justin Raimondo, Joshua Holland, Alexander Cockburn, and others, most of whom have only brought up 9/11 truth to mock it, have purposely misled the American people. I know they understand at least some of the evidence of 9/11 truth. And so, wouldn't their working to censor this information be called a conspiracy? Would you then feel that it might be called treason? Is that too harsh to say?

We have got to break our information into these media sources. I don't know how to do it. Embarrassing them, threatening them with being named as conspirators in the coverup, or even treasonous, might help. Protesting them, delivering Prof. Jones/Ryan's paper to them personally on video, etc could help. This is what has been done to our lawmakers, and it hasn't helped, but the reputation of the alternative media personalities rests on their responsibility in bringing us the news censored elsewhere......................wouldn't it be the height of embarrassment to them to be shown censoring just as the msm does?

One thing I know: treating the alternative media politely, as friends, as if they were on our side because they are about other issues, has NOT worked at all. They have done no better than the msm.............even worse.

There are millions who have not taken the step to understand 9/11 truth only because there have been no progressive/alternative media sites to present the information. Many people just won't seriously look into a subject that only comes from fringe sites on the web, as so, so many sites on so many issues are full of useless and false information. People just don't trust information like that. They have websites and media venues that they trust, and if NONE of them ever present our information, they dismiss it when they hear bits and pieces from friends. These are the people who simply will not look at a DVD on a subject that none of their news sources have mentioned. They are simply too busy.
But get the information onto the place where they get their news, and their minds will open up.

All this to say, in my opinion, 9/11 truth is dead if we cannot get our information into the alternative press. We need some scheme to do it. It would be nice to know just how they are being pressured and threatened.

Shame them and Challenge them.......

OK, pfgetty I'll bite. We need to turn the charge of censorship against the alternative media..... by using the Project Censored story itself. P.C. is held in high regard by the alternative left media, and rightly so. Almost every one of their stories was covered somewhere in the alternative press. You are absolutely right about 9/11 being the sole exception. It is inexplicable and inexcusable-- the "alternative media" is no better than the major corporate media on this issue. But since they are better than the MSM on most things, they should be a better target for us to hit.

How do we do that? We shame them, embarrass them and challenge them personally to debate us. We charge them with being "anti-science" and "pro-censorship"--- which they are on 9/11 issues. We should challenge these people personally and by name. Youtube clips, etc. with truth activists challenging left personalities to debate and to fight 9/11 censorship... using Project Censored against them. By lumping them in the same category as the MSM on 9/11 and pointing to a respected alternative media source, Project Censored, we might be able to build this bridge to the left.

Cindy Sheehan could be an asset here too.

This is a plug for the book...

The BIG announcement for the TWENTY-FIVE Top censored stories are yet to come.
We will certainly watch for it and utilize it.


And thank you.
So glad there is a like minded person here.
I really think we are right.

But I am embarrassed to say I can't think of a thing I can do down here in this little southern town in the shadows of Camp Lejeune, by myself. Although I bill myself as the area representative of 911 Truth, I have no other members of my group!
Seriously, I would like to see some of the bigger names in the movement recognize this need. I'd help if I can, but the people really connected and experienced can probably come up with a lot of ideas. What I think has happened all through these years is that the alternative media was, for some reason, considered an ally, or a potential ally, and nobody wanted to damage any possibilities. But after eight years of no response from them, I think we can safely say they screwed us!

I'd like to see We Are Change and other groups follow up on this......................protests, confrontations, other ideas...............all to embarrass the alternativve media, like Alternet and DemocracyNow!, into working FOR us, instead of against us or ignoring us.

Really, we have the facts. We have the science, the irrefutable evidence. Any honest journalist that looks into this must, if their brains cells are firing, realize we are right and we need our information presented to the public.

Somebody out there, can you think of the next step??

"I have no other members of my group!"

Go to and start a 9/11 truth group. Like minded people will find you.

Been there, done that.

This is a small southern town positioned between two Marine Corps bases, and there just are very few people who even now admit that there were no WMD. I'm still waiting for somebody to contact me via some websites.
I know, I know..............I need to get out there with pamphlets and such.
Isolation on this is a nightmare.
It was so great the day I went up to ground zero, the day after New Years this year, and met up with Manny and the rest and talked all day about 9/11.

Also pfgetty...

...there is still a lot you can do by yourself. You have the constitutionally protected right to petition your government all by yourself which you can. You don't need any other signatures. Send them to your congressman, your senator, Obama, your state officials, local officials. Plant seeds and water them. That's all we can do. They will sprout in time.

"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

Our political leaders have no incentive whatsoever......... act on anything about 9/11 truth, regardless of how many letters they have.
They realize that we are a tiny minority.
The rest of the population doesn't have a clue.

I know I sound pessimistic, but I think I am realistic. Sending letters to, or even confronting, political leaders will get us nowhere. Again, there simply is no incentive for them to act in our behalf. And there is a lot of flack they would get. Why would they take our cause onto themselves?

FIRST and foremost we need to get the information of 9/11 truth to the general public.
I can't think of any way to get the msm interested.
But the alternative media is a different manner, even though they have been no better than the msm.
Their reasons for existence is bringing news to the world that the msm won't. If we expose them as being irresponsible in their mission, purposely censoring big, important and well documented stories, I think some of them may bend.

Once we get a lot of people reading our information and getting angry and demanding, I think then the political system could start to move in our direction.

Confronting, political leaders

They might be few and far in between, but some political leaders will listen...

"After hearing of the recent peer-reviewed and refereed study, which found explosives in the debris of the world trade center, Sen. Gillibrand said, Based on what youve just told me, and that 70% of family members questions were not answered during the commission hearings, I think those questions should be answered." - SOURCE

Even when no results are achieved through a confrontation, it still gets the information to the general public by way of posting it online.

Here and there a few things get throught, but...............

..............time is marching on, and one statement every few months hidden in the internet somewhere just will not get us anywhere. Soon all of this will be too old to matter.
We need an explosion of public viewing of 9/11 truth. The only way I can see to accomplish that is to somehow get the alternative media embarrassed into presenting this information.


No disagreement about getting alternative media attention, but one way that can be achieved is through confrontations, especially when we garner results. I just think we should be hitting on all fronts. That being said, whenever I have done street actions most people I talked to were already aware of these issues. The real solution may lie outside of the US. I'm not sure what is taking place with any international efforts as of late, but I know there are some. All we can do is keep plugging away, it's frustrating, but I think the movement is doing a great job, it's just an uphill battle.

We are not a tiny minority...

...that is exactly what the MSM want you to believe. Tons of people know about 9/11 truth, it's just that people like you, who know, don't speak out. A politician has the obligation to listen to his constituents because if he doesn't he will be voted out. How else can you get a politician to do anything unless you put pressure on them. Our enemies understand very well how to put pressure on our politicians. We need to as well. It is so easy to say it will accomplish nothing before you do it, then you have nothing to feel guilty about. And I'm not judging, I did it for years. But you are wrong, and I hope one day you realize how and why this democratic form of government was put in place. Any failure of democracy is a failure of people not getting involved over subjects they feel passionate about. We can always use more exposure in the general public but that is a cop-out to say that because we don't have that I won't petition my government. Countless people died for your right to do that. Enough people know about 9/11 truth already. What we need is action!

This is what I wrote to

In response to their emailed request for a donation in their current fund drive:

As you know, times are tough for many people these days and I myself have not had a steady job in over a year. While in the past I have contributed to, I am now spending what few dollars I can spare to support web sites that are not shy when it comes to raising questions about the false-flag aspects of 9/11 and the increasing amount of scientific evidence as presented by the architects and engineers at for the use of explosives to bring down the 3 WTC skyscrapers on 9/11. 9/11 was their ticket to march off with the compliant sheep in tow on the war for oil, empire and hegemony. I believe the best chance at stopping them is to make it widely known to the public that they have been hoodwinked by a false flag operation (like the planned Operation Northwoods or the actual Operation Gladio) into supporting a bunch of war criminals engaged in a quest for profits and empire. Hence from now on, what little money I can spare is spent on supporting web sites that are are willing to report on and discuss the treachery surrounding 9/11 and that support a call for a new and thorough investigation into 9/11.

That's a great letter

That's a great letter stewball.

Everyone should write similar letters to their favorite alternative news websites.

I am so glad you wrote that to them.

I also have supported in the past.
In fact, Justin Raimondo wrote a book soon after 9/11 exposing many links of the Mossad and the attacks. I bought the book.

And then nothing. It all stopped. Justin all of a sudden went blank as far as the official story and 9/11.
In fact, I don't remember much about it, but he wrote a piece mocking the 9/11 truth movement.

What happened? I don't know.

Bravo for your efforts.

I do not think these alternative media sites should be supported if they fail to do the one thing that they exist to do: bring us the information being censored by the msm. If they censor controversial information, what do we need them for?

Kudos to Project Censored

for sticking to their guns on 9/11 Truth, even after people such as Norman Solomon bailed on them.

Send names of courageous journalists to Mike Casner

Yes, Kudos to the Project Censored team !

Kudos to ALL journalists, who have managed to defend their profession from falling asleep in zombie land. A most recent example of this "zombie attitude" comes from “Lexinton” writing in the ECONOMIST ! See :

In a short essay directed against the US “Gun-lovers (who) still argue that the slightest curb on their right to bear arms will make America vulnerable to tyranny” Lexington uses the following “argumentation”:

“Hofstadter, writing at the time of Barry Goldwater’s insurgency, argued that political paranoia—a mix of anger, heated exaggeration, suspiciousness and conspiratorial fantasy—was most evident on the extreme right. And there are plenty of examples of right-wingers peddling nutty tales. Isolationists in the 1940s accused Franklin Roosevelt of deliberately letting the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbour to provide an excuse for war.”

“But the left is hardly immune to such fantasies.” -
“A staggering 18% of Americans think that the government of George Bush probably knew in advance about the attacks of September 11th 2001 but allowed them to proceed anyway. Some even contend that Mr Bush orchestrated the attacks himself, to create an excuse for invading Iraq. To believe this, you have to believe that the Bushies were both wicked enough to murder thousands of Americans and brilliant enough to execute such a mind-bogglingly sophisticated plot without a single leak—in a culture where Richard Nixon could not even hush up a burglary.”

“the vast majority of people who visit crazy websites will never hurt anyone. But there is no cause for complacency, either. Politicians should tone down the rhetoric. Protesters should read some history before making Hitler comparisons. Talk-show hosts should stop pretending that paranoid nitwits are asking reasonable questions. If people are continually told that their government is plotting against them, a few may decide to fight back. And as Lee Harvey Oswald showed, even one man with a violent sense of grievance can do a lot of harm.”

[ End of quote of the short Lexinton essay in the last "The Economist" "Still crazy after all these years", Aug 20th 2009 ]

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh said: “When you speak the truth, the masses are against you. Truth is dangerous, dangerous to all those people who have been living in fictions, beautiful lies, nice dreams, utopias. Truth is bound to be looked on as an enemy by all these people, because it is going to shatter all that they have believed and lived for. Truth is just the death of all kinds of lies, howsoever consoling they may have been. Nobody wants to be disturbed during a sweet dream.”

I took this quote off the internet, from a post by Mike Casner ( ) who is currently collecting names of courageous journalists who are NOT afraid of researching the truth about September 11th 2001. If you can think of a few good names, please send them quickly to him!

May I remind you all to also spread this initiative far and wide: Republic Magazine 16 - 911 Uncovering the Truth

"unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all.

Brussels, Friday September 11th 2009: demonstration :

Incredible, the ignorance:

This quote from Lexington particularly galled me:

To believe this, you have to believe that the Bushies were both wicked enough to murder thousands of Americans and brilliant enough to execute such a mind-bogglingly sophisticated plot without a single leak—in a culture where Richard Nixon could not even hush up a burglary.”

So he is saying that these two men, who purposely lied us into wars that killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people, could not purposely be part of a scheme that kills 3000?
And he is saying that a few crazy unprofessional Arabs could pull off a "mind-bogglingly sophistiocated plot without a single leak" without the CIA or FBI or any foreign intelligence agency knowing of the plot beforehand, but the Bushes, with the most sophistocated, biggest system of covert operators in world history, with all the money they want at their disposal, could not pull it off?

More proof of ignorance:

Dixit from the Lexington article: "Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people with a bomb in Oklahoma in 1995 because he thought the federal government was hatching various dastardly plots."

Again, like the allusion to the "lone kook" Lee Harvey Oswald, he is ignoring the scientific proof that you can not bring about that type of a destruction to such a building structure with ONE fertilizer bomb. There are many strange facets to the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal building to warrant Lexington to NOT choose that as "a clear cut example"!

Other non exploded bombs were visible on clips from the news teams that arrived immediately on the spot. This is why no cameras were allowed on the "ground zero" of the 9/11 massacres. As in the official explanation of the destruction of the three tower in New-York, the official explanation of "one man, one fertilizer bomb" does not at all stand up to scientific scrutiny.

"unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. If such a determination is not embodied in our political vision we have no hope of restoring what is so nearly lost to us - the dignity of man." (Harold Pinter)
