The Ballad of Mohamed Atta – Vic Sadot at Last FM on “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”. Great violin by Vic's buddy Eric Golub. This song was written after reading the Australian Broadcast Corporation interviews by Liz Jackson with Ralph Bodenstein & Volker Hauth who were buddies with Mohamed Atta in their college days. They simply could not imagine him being the person described in the US Press. Research by Daniel Hopsicker of Mad Cow News “Welcome to Terrorland” revealed a Mohamed devoid of religion & addicted to sex & drugs, who had Visas & US military training at Huffman Aviation & Pensacola Naval Base in Florida. What is myth? What is true? http://www.last.fm/music/Vic+Sadot/_/Ballad+of+Mohamed+Atta
Slingshot to the Juggernaut
In the ten years since 9/11, a grassroots truth movement has sprung up that unites the best elements of the Right and Left. The call to resist the secrecy, imperialism, and the manipulation of the elite has been heard by a wide spectrum of people, across religious and political lines. Here is a fertile ground for serious change.
The call to truth and peace is a call being heard by a massive resistance in North Africa right now. We here in the USA have suffered from tyranny, secrecy and a growing police state. It’s time for the people of the USA to join the new global revolution.
Sander Hicks is an activist and a writer, working on his new book, "Slingshot to the Juggernaut." (Soft Skull, Fall, 2012). He is the founder of the Truth Party. The time has come to unveil the future.
What Will Happen:
On this week's episode of Media Roots radio we question why Fox news has been spearheading the Able Danger investigation and why the 'intellectual left' reinforces the myth of the War on Terror and Al Qaeda. We also discuss Jan Brewer's shocking public appearances and dispel popular talking points and myths about Iran by scrutinizing things like the mistranslated mantra 'Israel should be wiped off the map'.

A document obtained and witnesses interviewed by Fox News raise new questions over whether there was an effort by the Defense Department to cover up a pre-9/11 military intelligence program known as "Able Danger."
On the eve of Sept. 11, Fox News has learned the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency has attempted to block a book about the tipping point in Afghanistan and a controversial pre-9/11 data mining project called "Able Danger."
In a letter obtained by Fox News, the DIA says national security could be breached if "Operation Dark Heart" is published in its current form. The agency also attempted to block key portions of the book that claim "Able Danger" successfully identified hijacker Mohammed Atta as a threat to the United States before the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
In a highly unusual move, the Department of Defense is now negotiating with the publisher, St. Martin's Press, to buy all 10,000 copies of the first printing of the book to keep it off shelves—even after the U.S. Army had cleared the book for release.
Anthony Shaffer has written a memoir titled "Operation Dark Heart" and, according to the article U.S. Defense Department seeks to buy and destroy 10,000 copies of sensitive Afghan war memoir...
U.S. Defense Department officials entered negotiations to buy and destroy all 10,000 copies of the first printing of an Afghan war memoir that they claim has intelligence secrets, the New York Times reported.
The publication, “Operation Dark Heart”, by Anthony A. Shaffer, a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer and a lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve has divided military security reviewers and it’s unclear what information in the book is actually a genuine threat to security.
Intelligence Officer Anthony Shaffer.
Shaffer made a protected disclosure to the 9/11 Commission staff director, Philip D. Zelikow, while undercover in Afghanistan in October 2003 regarding the existence of the ABLE DANGER program that had identified alleged 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta and three other al-Qaeda operatives operating in the United States prior to 9/11.
As ABC+news confirmed yesterday, alleged lead 9/11 hijacker Mohamed+Atta attended a Florida mosque run by Gulshair+Shukrijumah, a radical Islamist imam. Although ABC revealed key new details, including that an FBI informer had been interested in Atta, but had been pulled away from him by his handlers, public information previously indicated Atta and fellow alleged hijacker pilot Marwan+Alshehhi had attended the mosque. Based on this, in early 2007 I wrote an entry in the 9/11 Timeline called “Atta+and+Alshehhi+Attend+Florida+Mosque,” which put together a comment in the 9/11 Congressional Inquiry report and media accounts.
Today, Rawstory reported on New York Times columnist Frank Rich, and his belief that the Defense Department Inspector General's office's investigations over the years may have been cover-ups that were "carried out in response to "orders from above." He said that any report "over the past five or six years during the war in Iraq" may be suspect, and that "there may be a much bigger story here."
Wow. A fair and balanced, and incredibly detailed review of not just the movie, the meeting afterwards, but also of the entire 9/11 Truth movement and its various factions . . . We could and should learn from this. And thanks to Sander for being such a great, articulate speaker, and moderating the topics so they did not go off into Bizarro Land, especially this night with this freelance writer in the audience unbeknownst to us. And much thanks to Jon Gold for the head's up re this article. - Betsy

LM native's movie thriller conjures up a 9-11 conspiracy
By Richard Ilgenfritz
BRYN MAWR – Growing up in Merion, Dave Herman says he sometimes thought about making films.Now, the 1986 Lower Merion High School grad is about to bring his first feature film back to the hometown crowd as his Able Danger debuts in Bryn Mawr and Wayne over the next couple of weeks.
"I'm looking forward to it," Herman says of returning to the Main Line for his film's release.
The movie's title comes from a real government data-mining program called Able Danger that began in the late 1990s. The program reportedly was designed to track the finances of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization. However, a large amount of the data was destroyed in the months leading up to the 9-11 attacks.

An Important Reminder
Posted by mradwin in June 15th, 2008
Posted in: Uncategorized
I often find that if I don't remind myself of the facts, I tend to lose solid belief in the truth. I know that the facts are there, but the things they stand for become far-fetched in my mind. The government attacking the World Trade Center? Attacking the most decorated US naval ship in history? Funding both side of every war? A secret society taking over the world? None of it could be true...But it is. So, here is the top eleven reasons 9/11 was an inside job. Just so all of you can be reminded. Brought to you by www.911truth.org
"Able Danger the movie takes the real-life mystery of
the intelligence operation and uses it as the basis for
a spirited and blackly comic neo-noir set all over
Manhattan and Brooklyn . . . the author and the
book featured in the movie really exists,
Able Danger program really existed,
all the 'conspiracies' mentioned
in the movie are true..”

Our Own Private Bin Laden
Are the programmers at Tribeca committed to advancing a 911 agenda? They have developed a '911 Category' at the Festival this year and The film Able Danger has been entered to this year's festival and would be an obvious pick. It is a noir homage 911 conspiracy theory femme fatale driven noir thriller filmed in New York, Brooklyn, Tribeca and based around a New Yorker Patriot who runs a little cafe-bookstore-micropoublisher (http://voxpopnet.net/) in Flatbush.
Able Danger played in Rotterdam to 3 sold out shows of 400 in attendance and the Q&A with the director went on until the movie theater had to shut it down.
Now you could say that the Dutch are just smarter than the Americans, but I don't think so.
Able Danger and The Reflecting Pool, two separate motion pictures based on the non-official version of what happened on 9/11, will be premiering this January. The two independently made drama films confront the viewer with the facts that 9/11 could not have been perpetrated by the 19 hijackers and deal with the question who might be behind the crime of the century. Able Danger premiers Monday 28 January at the Rotterdam Film Festival in the Netherlands. The Reflecting Pool will premiere on 31 January in the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, USA.
Able Danger is a movie based on the fact of an official unit called Able Danger, comprised of United States intelligence personnel. The unit observed ringleader Mohammed Atta and his hijackers, but was not allowed to provide the FBI and later the 9/11 Commission with their data. More than a year before the attacks on 11 September 2001 it destroyed the gathered information, worth 2,5 terabytes, equal to one fourth of the printed books in the Library of Congress. In reality, says Webster Tarpley, author of Synthetic Terror - Made in USA, Able Danger

Thomas Flynn, the idealist owner of a left-leaning radical cafe-bookstore and the quixotic publisher of a hard-hitting 9/11 conspiracy expose, finds himself entangled with a mysterious Eastern European beauty, Kasia, who is on the run from the architects of a global 9/11 cover-up, in this contemporary take on classic film noir. When Thomas is implicated in the murder of his friend and employee, he's forced to unravel Kasia's complex web of lies while attempting to fight his natural attraction to her. As it turns out, Kasia possesses the smoking gun that proves the identities and methods of the real architects of 9/11, and Thomas willing to risk everything to expose the truth.

Fall 1999: Army Intelligence Program Begins Gathering Information on Al-Qaeda
A military analysts' chart did not identify hijackers beforehand, senators report.
By Greg Miller, Times Staff Writer
December 25, 2006
WASHINGTON — The Senate Intelligence Committee has rejected as untrue one of the most disturbing claims about the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes — a congressman's contention that a team of military analysts identified Mohamed Atta or other hijackers before the attacks — according to a summary of the panel's investigation obtained by The Times.
The conclusion contradicts assertions by Rep. Curt Weldon (R-Pa.) and a few military officers that U.S. national security officials ignored startling intelligence available in early 2001 that might have helped to prevent the attacks.
In particular, Weldon and other officials have repeatedly claimed that the military analysts' effort, known as Able Danger, produced a chart that included a picture of Atta and identified him as being tied to an Al Qaeda cell in Brooklyn, N.Y. Weldon has also said that the chart was shared with White House officials, including Stephen J. Hadley, then deputy national security advisor.
...What changed between 2004 and May 2006, when a federal grand jury in Washington DC was presented with evidence obtained by cell phone wiretaps of Weldon’s family and associates, an indication that US intelligence agencies had been interested in the congressman for some months?
During the summer of 2005, Weldon, vice-chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, revealed the existence of a secret Pentagon counter-terrorism operation codenamed Able Danger, which he claimed had identified Mohammed Atta, alleged ringleader of the 9/11 attacks, as early as 1999.
It has been widely reported in Europe that Atta was known to US intelligence agencies and was actually under FBI surveillance in Germany in 1999, a circumstance that undermines the incessant Bush administration claims that the 9/11 attacks came out of the blue and that the US government had no idea before September 2001 that Al Qaeda terrorists were in the United States planning terrorist attacks.
This information has been largely suppressed in the American media, and the existence of Able Danger was covered up by the official 9/11 Commission in order to sustain its whitewash of the role of US military and intelligence agencies in permitting and even facilitating the attacks.
Weldon said that Able Danger had also identified three other future 9/11 hijackers as Al Qaeda loyalists: Marwan Al-Shehhi, Khalid Almidhar and Nawaf Alhazmi...

"...Though Weldon supports Bush's War on Terror, and though Weldon has accepted contributions from disgraced Representative Foley's PAC and though Weldon has even commended Bush's signing of the Constitution-destroying H.R. 6166, Weldon stands out in this upcoming election for another unconventional reason:
He has questioned and pursued a cover-up of pre-9/11 intelligence in the Able Danger program, which identified supposed lead hijacker Mohammad Atta as an al Qaeda operative in the Bronx area during the year 2000..."
Representative Curt Weldon has called the Pentagon's report that the hijackers were not identified and tracked prior to 9/11 through the Able Danger program a "whitewash".
Newsmax ran this story on Friday:
WASHINGTON -– Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., called a Pentagon report he had requested about pre-9/11 intelligence on al-Qaida operations in the United States "emphatically wrong" and a "whitewash," aimed at discrediting him as he faces the toughest re-election campaign of his career.
The report was leaked to the press on Wednesday, but Weldon was not briefed on its contents until Thursday afternoon, despite his instrumental role in requesting the investigation.
"What really upset me was they actually released information to the media before they even met with me or anyone else," Weldon told NewsMax on Thursday.
The report, conducted by the Pentagon Inspector General, investigated claims brought to Weldon's office by active duty military officers and other Defense Department officials about information they had developed on al-Qaida cells in the United States more than one year before the Sept. 11 attacks on America.
