Thanks Graeme once again for your hard work and outstanding scholarship. Happy Holidays Everyone !

Thank you Graeme MacQueen

Thank you Graeme MacQueen for your intellectual honesty and commitment to peace and truth. There is something which frightens people about this false flag which I suppose amounts to the idea that the people of this nation have this inherent trust that as ineffective government can be, as unjust and wrong headed their polices are, they can't imagine their government murdering them to acheive some geopolitical or strategic goal. The in notion of this in your face murder is so numbing and such an expression of control and dominance that people are psychically numbed and physically paralyzed to do anything.

They immediately focus on some means to change the policy which resulted not seek justice for the false premise and heinous and demented people who carried this crime out. Even with Naomi Klien's shock doctrine as the template and the blue print they will not connect the dots. We are the boiling frogs...

I attended the first day of that conference and am sorry I missed the opportunity to speak with you personally. But I am grateful to be able to view your remarks.

fear of consequences

sandero..

i agree with your comments and wanted to add that beyond the excuse of an "ineffective government" that they can't imagine committing such atrocities, many are also simply afraid of the consequences in realizing this.. their fear turns into emotional outrage and denial.

When I spoke up at a strategy session for 'peace activists' in Northampton MA, I received harsh criticism for saying how exposing the 9/11 cover-up was critical for peace and justice. This so-called 'Coalition of the Outraged' could not see the connection.

But perhaps i left a seed, also left copies of my poem abomination obama nation.

i don't plan on giving up on these activists. i am going to another strategy meeting on the afghan invasion escalation tomorrow, and plan to bring copies of the poem, and on the back side of the page will copy jon gold's pdf flier, The “Post-9/11 World” Is A Detriment To Humanity, as well as will share my essay Space for Peace and September 11. 9/11 truth and justice is absolutely crucial for peace.

my home computer is on dial-up so haven't seen this video, yet.. but how could i get a hard copy to publicly screen with www.valley911truth.org in western Massachusetts?

Very Interesting!

While listening to the speaker at 4-5 minute mark talking of being in Afghanistan in 2001 before Sept, and reports of an upcoming U.S. invasion already known, I looked more into that and the confirmations were very interesting, actually the U.S. was already getting involved.....

"15 March 2001
India is believed to have supplied the Northern Alliance leader, Ahmed Shah Massoud, with high-altitude warfare equipment. Indian defence advisors, including air force helicopter technicians, are reportedly providing tactical advice in operations against the Taliban."

"Intelligence sources in Delhi said that while India, Russia and Iran were leading the anti-Taliban campaign on the ground, Washington was giving the Northern Alliance information and logistic support."

"Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October."

"He said that he was in no doubt that after the World Trade Center bombings this pre-existing US plan had been built upon and would be implemented within two or three weeks."
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/1550366.stm

He is the guy that made the famous "carpet of bombs" statement...

"In Naik's early telling, Tom Simons -- a U.S. delegate at the meetings and former ambassador to Pakistan -- issued a noteworthy ultimatum: "Either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs."

"Naik confirmed what the authors had been told by legendary FBI anti-terror czar John O'Neill before he died Sept. 11 -- that oil interests had hampered the investigation into Osama bin Laden's terror network,"

"Today Naik offers a few more specifics. He says that the discussion in question occurred on July 21; that the talk first occurred in the general meetings, but then continued after the group took a break, when Simons issued the "carpet of bombs" threat. He also argues that the discussion went on long enough to discuss not just the place where the attack would come from, but also the time."

"We asked them, when do you think you will attack Afghanistan?" Naik says, looking back. "And they said, before the snow falls in Kabul. That means September, October, something like that."

"WASHINGTON, May 16, 2002 - President Bush was expected to sign detailed plans for a worldwide war against al-Qaida two days before Sept. 11 but did not have the chance before the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, U.S. and foreign sources told NBC News."

Niaz A Naik ‘tortured to death’

"ISLAMABAD: Former foreign secretary Niaz A Naik was found dead in mysterious circumstances at his residence in Sector F-7/3 on Saturday, police said. He was 82."

"Naik’s body was shifted to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) where its autopsy was conducted."

"The spokesman of the PIMS did not rule out the strong possibility of murder, saying that the preliminary medico-legal report strengthened the doubts of homicide after torture."

I had no idea...

He was murdered.


Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? The facts speak for themselves.

First video excellent. Any chance of a transcript?

I haven't yet been able to see the rest.

I think a full transcript would help.

It would take me at least a day to do myself.

I intend to make use of some quotes from this.

transcript

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. The text I was working from can be made available if anyone wants it. I've sent it to "carbon," who submitted this video, assuming this is the simplest way to make it available. There are a few differences from the oral presentation (I just noticed Kissinger wasn't in the text...) but they're pretty minor.

...

A wonderful speech from a man I consider one of our very best, sane, rational and inspiring spokespersons.

And your Kissinger wasn't bad, either ;)

I Second That!

US-Peace movement demands 9/11 investigation in large numbers

the international Anti-War Declaration
http://www.war-is-illegal.org
has been signed by many important peace organisation throughout the United States
the declaration is supporting a new 9/11 investigation.

the 2nd demand reads

we support the following demands:

2) International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct. International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans, have called for a new investigation.

that's good news. . .

. . . are there any other peace sites where this excellent lecture (and/or links to it) could be posted?

Eloquent and passionate

In addition to his command of the facts, Graeme brings an effective rhetorical style to 9/11 Truth.

The "Peace Movement-9/11 Truth Movement" merger is what...

...the HI PERPS fear more than anything else.

Should the massive numbers of 'people of peace" get laptops, get plugged into THIS century, come to think as Graeme MacQueen suggests and then decide to pick up those new laptops in purposeful manners, their inherent goodness and powerful characters will join the 9/11 Truth Movement in mounting a massive and unstoppable assault FOR THE TRUTH about everything across the globe.

And then it becomes a fairer fight as our numbers grow to act against their "Mockingbird Media tools" who are paying their mortgages by working to keep all the official lies intact.

And this lying goes way beyond the events of 9/11/2001...to say the very, very least.

Thank you Graeme, this will be a helpful step into making the "people of peace" aware as they need to be in our modern world. Maybe Santa gave them all a laptop for Christmas...lets hope so.

9/11 TRUTH for World PEACE

PS: I think that its a valid approach to help explain what "false flag operations" are using new descriptors. But more importantly, I strongly think that its more important to value the centuries old history of "false flag ops" being utilized to manipulate citizenry into unwanted and minimally understood wars. Bringing "false flag operations" into the conciousnesses of old time peace activists is a critical step...and one can easily google "false flag operations" and come to get well educated about them. Not so with other newly minted identifiers for the same warring tactic...rdh

Good sound bite

Good sound bite at about 31:30, directed toward the peace movement: 'How can you claim to understand war if you don't understand the events that trigger it?'

Great work Graeme! Thanks for your honesty about your process. That in itself speaks of the integrity of the "Truth Movement"

If I were MacQueen, I would

If I were MacQueen, I would just wait outside the door of Amy Goodman's Democracy Now! studio and plead to be interviewed or maybe take her out to dinner...afterall she is the veritable leader of the peace movement on alternative radio.

He's up

in Canada....
Maybe you can forward the video to her, and take it from there.
Would have been nice if she could have come to the 'peace' conference (right in her city).
