9/11 Commission Report

Why Hasn’t Rudy Giuliani Read the 9-11 Commission Report?

Why Hasn’t Rudy Giuliani Read the 9-11 Commission Report?

May 16, 2007

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ARLINGTON, VA – During the "First in the South" GOP debate in South Carolina last night, one thing was made clear: Rudy Giuliani does not understand how to keep America safe.

When Congressman Ron Paul, who has long served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, explained how 50 years of American interventionism in the Middle East has helped compromise our national security, Giuliani interrupted saying he had "never heard anything so absurd." This statement is particularly troubling coming from the former mayor who tries to cast himself as a security expert, since Dr. Paul's point comes directly from the bi-partisan 9-11 Commission Report.

"Rudy Giuliani has tip-toed around the issues of abortion, guns and marriage. The only issue he has left is security, and he doesn't even get that right," said campaign chairman Kent Snyder. "It is clear from his interruption that former Mayor Giuliani has not read the 9-11 Commission Report and has no clue on how to keep America safe."

Voters say no to new 9/11 investigation

I have to admit that I was pretty teary-eyed when I read this guys. But two to one is not bad, so chin up. At least the impeachment resolutions made it through. The message, however, is clear: We have to work harder to get our message out. And we can start by helping our own in the comments section of the current article:

Voters say no to new 9/11 investigation

By John Briggs
Free Press Staff Writer

March 7, 2007

Burlington voters Tuesday rejected a local group's call for a new investigation of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, by a nearly two-to-one ratio.

The vote was 3,150 to 1,817. The ballot question passed 39-17 in Lincoln, proponent Matthew Ennis said. The issue never generated much debate in Burlington.

"I'm very surprised," said Marc Estrin, spokesman for the Burlington group, which gained enough signatures to place the question on the ballot. "I was expecting the opposite direction."

Anti-war Icon Cindy Sheehan Supports 9/11 Truth and a New 9/11 Investigation

Speaking in Burlington, Vermont this past Friday evening, March 2nd, 2007, grieving mother, anti-war activist and author Cindy Sheehan extended her hand in support of researchers and activists skeptical of the official line on the 9/11 terror attacks and publicly questioned several key features in the establishment mythos surrounding the event.

When asked the question, “Do you buy into the government's account of events on 9/11 and if not, which part or parts do you suspect or have you proven to be false,” Sheehan:

1) called attention to the relevance of 9/11 by linking it to the claims used to justify the war in Iraq and her son's death there;
2) lent verbal support to a new, democratically-led 9/11 investigation;
3) lent verbal support and urged others to lend their support to 9/11 Truth researchers and activists;
4) referenced the video, “Loose Change” (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7866929448192753501); and
5) referenced David Ray Griffin's book, The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 (http://physics911.ca/pdf/2004/griffin_pearl_harbor.pdf)

A video clip of the event is posted at the following URLs:

Muckraker on 9/11 Commission Report and Iran

The Approaching War with Iran: Part III

"The whitewash that was the 9/11 Commission ran by Philip Zelikow has already provided the Bush Whitehouse with enough legal cover to launch an attack against Iran. Zelikow saw to it that the important questions, the questions that the Jersey widows and the rest of America wanted answered by the Commission, the questions that would have unraveled the lies told about 9/11 and most likely placed this nation in a state of armed revolt against the federal government – Zelikow made sure these questions never saw the light of day in favor of creating a legal mechanism for Bush / Cheney to pull the trigger in the greater Middle East – not just Iraq.

Have doubts? In the July 26, 2006 edition of Newsweek ran an article titled 9/11: The Iran Factor - The final report of the 9-11 Commission reveals troubling new evidence that Tehran was closer to Al Qaeda than Iraq was.

On page 61 of the 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, the Zelikow Commission wrote:

In late 1991 or 1992, discussions in Sudan between al Qaeda and Iranian operatives led to an informal agreement to cooperate in providing support – even if only training – for actions carried out primarily against Israel and the United States.

On page 128 the Commission wrote:

Though intelligence gave no clear indication of what might be afoot, some intelligence reports mentioned chemical weapons, pointing toward work at a camp in southern Afghanistan called Derunta. On November 4, 1998, the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York unsealed its indictment of Bin Laden, charging him with conspiracy to attack U.S. defense installations. The indictment also charged that al Qaeda had allied itself with Sudan, Iran, and Hezbollah.

Remember, S.J. Res. 23 authorized the President to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons. The Congress loaded the gun and granted the license and the 9/11 Commission provided the bullets to Bush / Cheney to now hunt in Iran without further congressional oversight. Despite what Clinton or any other member of Congress has to say about it, until S.J. Res. 23 is revoked, the license to invade Iran remains legally in Bush / Cheney possession."

Thanks, parrotfish.

Oh no! The Disaster of the D-N-I

Some noise out there right now about what a poor job the Bush admiinstration is doing with the 9/11 Commission's DNI recommendation;

"9-11 Panel Members Say Bush's Intelligence Overhaul a 'Failure'"

Did it ever cross their obfuscating little brains that the recommendation itself was a joke?

According to testimony by ex-* and retired- CIA folks that walked away from the Agency with their credibility intact, this was the worst recommendation that the Commission put forward, and of course, the only one embraced by this administration. Here is some criticism of the Commission and their DNI recommendation;

"The 9/11 Commission had the broadest mandate of any commission in the history of the United States. With the exception of the Pearl Harbor Commission there has probably been no more important national security commission, but in terms of broad mandate, the 9/11 Commission could have looked at any aspect of this tragedy, and it’s regrettable that they didn’t do that...

dc911truth Shredding Party at the White House

This Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006, dc911truth held a mock shredding of the 9/11 Commission Report, in Lafayette Park, in front of the White House, from 11:00 am to Noon. This event is one of a series of events sponsored by 9/11 truth groups across the country on the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. We wanted to show our solidarity and support for the 911truth groups in Boston, San Francisco, Milwaukee, St. Louis, and elsewhere.

The event was kicked off with a reading of the Boston 9/11 truth resolution by Matt Sullivan, followed by a presentation by Webster Tarpley. Then members of dc911truh.org took turns reading from David Ray Griffins list of 115 lies, omissions and distortions of the Kean-Hamilton-Zelikow report. As each lie was read out, another page of the report was ripped out and fed to the shredder. The event lasted about 90 minutes and attracted the interest of dozens of tourists and secret service in addition to the roughly thirty people who came specifically for the Shredding.

We handed out several hundred flyers, information cards and 911truth DVDs to interested passersby.
Afterward the group went to lunch at a local sandwich shop. All-in-all a successful event.

JAN. 3RD: Embarass the New Congress Into Action

John Doraemi writes:

Burn a copy of the 9-11 Commission Report in front of Congress on January 3rd, 2007

Seize the moment with a new tea party for the new millenium.

The 9-11 Truth Movement should converge on the new business as usual 110th Congress, and bring as much media and independent video as possible.  As Nancy Pelosi plays footsie with George W. Bush, the movement will burn a giant stack of 9-11 Ommission Commission reports outside the building.

This is the time.  This is the opportunity.  If you can get to the US Capitol on January 3rd with a copy of the 9-11 Commission Report (printed off the internet, or purchased), then make a huge bonfire.  Challenge the congress to see the movement.  Challenge them to acknowledge the crowds.  Challenge them to respond.

Please pass this to everone in the 9-11 Truth Movement.  Time is of the essence.  January 3rd, 2007 is when the new Congress seizes power.

As far as I know, burning the flag is First Amendment protected speech. Therefore burning this state sponsored collection of lies should also fall under First Amendment protected speech, as well as petitioning the government for a redress of grievances.

Dems In Hurry To Implement 9/11 Commission Recommendations

If you were living under the delusion that the Democrats will re-open the 9/11 investigation, think again. The primary issue for the Dems, according to the Washington Post today, is how FAST they can implement the commission's recommendations:

"Democratic leaders preparing to take control of Congress have vowed to push through a host of reforms recommended two years ago by the Sept. 11 commission, such as better port security and improved radio communications for first responders, but many of the most controversial changes are likely to face obstacles even with Capitol Hill in Democratic hands, according to experts and legislative aides.

Presumptive House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has made implementing the commission's recommendations one of the centerpieces of her "first 100 hours" legislative agenda, with particular focus on requiring radiation scans of all cargo that arrives by sea."

Secret Message From 9/11 Commission Co-Chair, Hidden Inside A Public Interview: "Please Re-Investigate!"

In a lengthy interview with CBC, Lee Hamilton, 9/11 Commission co-chair makes some stunning revelations. Remember, Hamilton is the guy who felt it necessary to co-author a book "Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission". The journalist who asks some sharp questions is Evan Solomon. The interview was done back in August.Lee Hamilton, 9/11 Commission Co-Chair

Here are some interesting tid-bits:

Question: Now, one of the stipulations, you write in the book, one of the ways that you thought that this ought to be successful, this report, the Commission Report, is on page 23, you said if the American people would accept the results as authoritative, and the recommendations.

And when I measure that against a Zogby poll done in May, that says now 42% of Americans say that "the U.S. government, and its 9/11 Commission, concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts the official explanation of September 11th, saying there's a cover-up" - 42%, Mr. Hamilton - what does that say to you about the efficacy of the Commission's report?

"National Security Whistleblowers" fire broadside against 9/11 Commission Report

Did you see this? It is a month old already, but it may have slipped everyone's attention:

"[...] we, the National Security Whistleblowers, want to go on record
one more time to reiterate the significant issues and cases that were
duly reported to the 9/11 commission by those of us from the intelligence,
aviation, and law enforcement communities, but ended up being censored
and omitted."

Sibel Edmonds and William Weaver enumerate 13 whistleblowers by name who have attempted to testify their knowledge before the now infamous "Ommission Commission". Their details are mindboggling. None of their people were called into hearings by the Commission's own initiative; all of them had to insist being heard and interviewed. Most failed to get a hearing -- and those who did, have seen their testimonies omitted in the final report.. This is truely smashing evidence for a cover up job being well executed by the commission.

Hmm.... maybe I better reproduce a full copy of the original publication in here (with some added highlighting by myself), so it gets wider circulation: (Has this ever been picked up by DailyKos and similar "alternative" outlets?)

The 9/11 Commission: A Play on Nothing in Three Acts

by Sibel Edmonds and William Weaver

A wag once famously said that Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot was a play where nothing happened… twice. The two former co-chairmen of the 9/11 commission report, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, have released a new book, Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission. This book goes Beckett one better – it is the third act of veneer over substance, self-aggrandizement over serious analysis, and cliché over perspicacity. It is another calculated attempt by the former commissioners to place themselves in the media spotlight, and to overcome the humiliation of their widely criticized and mostly debunked report. It is a vapid and substanceless attempt to claim moral high ground and present the cochairmen as heroes of honesty. It would be a farce, except that it has no story line, save the aggrandizement of the authors. At least they are consistent in doing nothing and proclaiming that to be a sign of their devotion to the country and the government. Beckett once said that "habit is the ballast that chains the dog to its vomit," and by this measure the chain restraining Kean and Hamilton is a short one indeed.

"9/11 Graphic Novel - The Real Version" -- Part One of a truly hilarious series kicked off

http://blog.abovetopsecret.com/wecomeinpeace/2006/09/911_graphic_novel_the_real_ver.html:

"Recently, Oceania's Ministry of Truth produced The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation - a propaganda comic book reiterating the official story for kids, the illiterate, and the incredibly bored. I noticed there were some parts of the novel that perhaps weren't entirely accurate, so here I present the first part of a 9/11 Graphic Novel Redux."

 

Hilarious 9/11 Truth Cartoon

 

This is truly hilarious! Excellent way to expose lots of the many little lies that surround the Big One. I'm really looking forward to the second (and later) parts. :-)

P.S.: Who is going to translate that into Spanish, French, German, Arab, Chinese,...?

P.S.S.: Be prepared for this thing to draw a lot of heat by the "opposition". Spread it around. Link to it. Mirror it. Back it up. Support it. Digg it (hmm... how does that work at all?)

 

Update 1: Let me try if this works: Digg this!

Update 2: Looks like the site went down. Let's see if it comes back up soon...
