What do the Warren and 9/11 Commissions have in common? Everything. John Farmer is the author of The Ground Truth: The Untold Story of America Under Attack on 9/11. Mr. Farmer served as senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission, where his areas of responsibility included assessing the national reaction to the terrorist attacks and evaluating the current state of national preparedness for terrorist attacks and natural disasters. He has also served as attorney general of New Jersey (1999-2002), as chief counsel to Governor Whitman, and as a federal prosecutor, and he has advised the special envoy for Middle East regional security. He is presently a partner of a New Jersey law firm and an adjunct professor of national security law at Rutgers University Law School. His editorials and articles have appeared in The New York Times and elsewhere. This should indeed be most interesting. You know how I love this subject. And the 9/11 Omission, er, Commission.

FOX QUESTIONING 911
15 minute segment where Lionel questions and gives his interpretation on the events of 9/11.
Good breakthrough in the alternative media.
To Thank Them and Request More...
* Thanks Vincent for the submission
We are one week away from the eighth anniversary of 9/11/2001. Eight years ago next Friday, our world changed.
There are many unanswered questions, and many people who won't rest until they get the answers. During the first hour of tonight's show, I'll speak with two of them.
Manny Badillo lost his uncle in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Janette Mackinlay lived right across the street from the twin towers, and was in her apartment when the planes hit, and blew her windows out... and lots of debris in.
Both are now involved with the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (http://www.nyccan.org/)-- a non-partisan organization comprised of 9/11 families, survivors and concerned citizens committed to bringing about an independent, impartial investigation into the events of 9/11/01.
Some time ago I signed up for Air America (I can't remember why now) and I receive their email spam called THE WIRE which I generally glance at briefly before putting in my hacks/shills folder.
This is what was at the top of the email for today, Thursday, June 11th:
Richard Ben-Veniste Addresses The 9-11 Truth Movement (VIDEO)
He was part of the commission charged with finding out the truth about 9-11. So what does Richard Ben-Veniste think about accusations that 9-11 was an inside job? Also, what's his take on Dick Cheney's latest media blitz?
(I hope I get the embed right!)
My open email to Randi Rhodes regarding my alleged "sandbagging" of the VP on blog-based nano-thermite rumor
I just called the Randi Rhodes show when I heard her give the number out, and, unexpectedly, got right on the air. I did not have my thoughts as collected as I would have liked and I was a little bit startled with how quickly things got snarky and snarly. So, I apologize if I was not that focused. But it seemed like it got some of the info out and got a good discussion going about journalism, blogging and "sandbagging." So, here is my open email in response to Randi. I have also told her that I will keep her responses private if she so desires.
p.s. if someone can grab that audio on the replay, that would be great.

by Justin A. Martell
Air America conducted a recent poll in which 9,000 or 90% of its respondents would like to see members of the Bush Administration do time in prison for alleged war crimes.
The poll was conducted in response to Joe Klein of Time Magazine's idea that a pardon from President Obama for George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld for War Crimes "would brand them for crimes without the agony of a trial."
For Air America's respondents, that is not enough. In addition to wanting members of the Bush Administration to serve jail sentences, some would like to see them serve those terms after being subjected to "enhanced interrogation techniques."
Just thought people should know that Reagan is spouting crap that he has seen detailed videos of the WTC destruction, and he asserts that, "he saw no evidence that anything took those towers down other than the planes that flew into them." (not verbatim, but close)
Air America is a bizarre amalgamation of biases, it seems. No wonder Clear Channel carries them out here in Portland, OR.
According to Richard, tonight's representative of the movement will be Dr. Peter Dale Scott. The topic of discussion will be Cheney's actions on 9/11, the possible Stand Down Order, and the Wargames. The debate starts at 9pm EST. Good luck to Dr. Scott.

Air America Host Randi Rhodes Suspended For Calling Hillary A "Big F*cking Whore"
Air America host Randi Rhodes called both Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton "whores" in a recent appearance, seen below. Rhodes, who hosts a weekday radio show on Air America, said to the cheering crowd, "What a whore Geraldine Ferraro is! She's such a fucking whore!" She then proceeded to say, "Hillary is a big fucking whore, too" to a mixed audience reaction. "You know why she's a big fucking whore? Because her deal is always, 'Read the fine print, asshole!'"
9/11 And Air America
by Shelton F. Lankford, Pilots For 9/11 Truth
When I signed up for the first Air America cruise, one of my goals was to challenge the open-minded, progressive listeners and radio hosts on 9/11 Truth, or rather the lack of it in their program content. My elevator speech was to the effect that, by attacking all the monsters that have been unleashed by the Bush administration piecemeal - Iraq, Patriot Act, Spying, Torture, Rendition, gutting the Constitution, etc. , it was like attacking a giant squid by grappling with each of its tentacles individually. We don't have enough arms, strength, or endurance to do it. By ignoring 9/11, we, in effect, ignore the body and brain of the monster, and have no hope of defeating it. It isn't a point that is original with me, but I don't mind stealing in an emergency - this is it.
Imagine my elation when one of the hosts, Richard Greene, to whom I had never listened, stood up in the introductory panel and said words to the effect that in order to stop the crimes that are ongoing and that are stealing our country away from us, we must confront and expose 9/11 as a false flag operation. I leapt to my feet and applauded wildly. I was joined by several others. I don't think he was prepared for the response his statement got, and he rapidly set up an impromptu session to show Zeitgeist, Part II and hold a discussion about the issue tonight.
In the past, before Lionel went on Air America, he would regularly talk about 9/11 and blow the OCT to pieces. He was on late night in NY. Then after his move to Air America he went silent on the subject, I'm not condoning this silence, but it's obvious he doesn't want to be "Rosied". In his blog on the last 9/11 Anniversary he criticised Alex Jones for taking over the 9/11 movement and alienating people, there was a lot of hyperbole in his rant, but that was the general thrust of what he said. I'm not sure that was wise either, agree or disagree with AJ.
Anyway, a main stream Air America host talking about Conspiracy, so hear it is:

Thom Hartmann Show, November 8, 2007
Kevin Ryan and Michael Shermer Debate
What Really Happened on 9/11
[The transcript below begins as Host Thom Hartmann is explaining some background relating to his research into the JFK assassination, about an hour an eight minutes into the unedited recording of the show at http://www.whiterosesociety.org/content/hartmann/HartmannShow-(8-11-2007).mp3 .]
TH: I’m very skeptical of anybody who says I know exactly what went on, or I know exactly what didn’t go on. So my position is very agnostic on this. I think it's going to take – I mean, here we are, with the JFK assassination, 40 years later, 44 years later – I think it's gonna take a long time to figure out. That said, a good healthy discussion, a good healthy debate and raising the questions and for that matter raising the answers to the questions, is a reasonable and healthy thing.
After working with my freeware Audacity wave editor (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows) all afternoon, I've managed to compile a relatively complete audio version of the debate (from hours 1 & 2) that is generally commercial-free.
Here is the Putfile link:
In case you have trouble downloading it from there (as opposed to just listening to it) you can get the full 41.38 MB MP3 file at the following (somewhat slow) link:
Also, mirrored for QUICK download here.
Thank you, Kevin! It was a good debate!
Google Blogs Alert for: 9/11 inside job
Air America "Clout" features Truthers
By The Lonewacko Blog
Air America Radio's new "Clout" program - hosted by nobody Richard Greene, located at airamerica.com/clout, and heard late evenings in cow pastures throughout Karnes, TX and elsewhere - apparently will feature the continuing presence of "Truthers", sources say. Previously, ex-AARer, ex-cutie, and troubled "liberal" Janeane Garofalo seemed to claim that 9/11 was an inside job. And, Randi Rhodes hinted at LIHOP. Ex-AARer and joke Senatorial candidate Al Franken pledged to "take a look" at a Truther video.

Johnny Wendell Put 9-11 Truth on Air America Affiliate KTLK1150 for Another Hour on Monday, September 3rd
A day after having Webster Tarpley and Barbara Honegger on the air to discuss 9-11 truth for an hour, host Johnny Wendell had Tarpley back on the air to hone in on the current threatening situation. The 1st segment was focused on the economic indicators that something is coming down the pike. After taking some calls from the audience, including some from local 9-11 truthers, Wendell had Tarpley on for one more segment to focus in on the case of building 7.
Overall, the two day truthathon sponsored by Mr. Wendell was a great gift to 9-11 truth movement in introducing some facts and ideas to a large progressive audience in Southern California. Additionally, both Honegger, on Sunday, and Tarpley, on Monday, directed listeners to go to the LA group's 9-11-07 Commemoration and Convergence Event. Everyone involved did great work to help make it happen.
Hard Work of LA Truther Pays Off in Hour of 9-11 Truth Talk on Local Air America Affiliate KTLK-AM1150
Yesterday, Sunday September 2nd, 2007, the disciplined effort of an LA Truther paid off in getting Webster Tarpley and Barbara Honegger an hour of air time on KTLK-AM1150, the local affiliate of Air America. Through engaging host Johnny Wendell in a serious 9-11 Truth dialogue over a course of many hours on the internet, she was able to get Wendell to invite Tarpley and Honegger, on very short notice, onto a show from 3-4pm he was guest-hosting for Joe McDonnell. With good interviewing from Wendell, both Tarpley and Honegger were able to give enough historical context, clear evidence from the "day of," and logical theories about what exactly might have happened, to spark Wendell's interest enough to commit to another hour or so of discussion centered around calls from the audience for this coming afternoon. Tarpley got more time and utilized it well by shredding the Zelikow Myth and giving a sense of how these type of operations actually work and where to look to for suspects.
The fact that Thom Hartmann is taking over Al Franken's spot on Air America is important because Hartmann is open to 9/11 truth.
Even though Air America went bankrupt, it might get out of the red and stabilize under new management.
People should call in and support Hartmann's coverage of 9/11 truth.
Thom's current contact info is below (it might change once he takes over on Air America):
