Title: "911Blogger.com" Accused: Is Leading 9/11 Truth Site Working For The Other Side?
Commentary by John Bursill - Contributor and supporter of 911Blogger.com
"Is 911Blogger.com working for the other side?" This question has been asked in an article written by the "staff writers" at the Rock Creek Free Press.
I found this article I have attached below rather corrosive and it appears to me some people ("staff writers") want to perpetuate some sort of civil war within our movement over the Pentagon? Or is it only that many people truly believe that no plane hit the Pentagon and need a plausible scenario to make that theory work for them? And the limiting/censoring of CIT's exposure and other advocates of no plane theory, is just too much to bear and they have to speak out for their important theory?
Some of the columnists at LewRockwell.com (LRC) are starting to get a little bolder (I strongly suspect that several of them are 9/11 Truthers of long standing, but are seemingly discouraged by "the management" -- or by their own fears -- from being too open on the topic; yet they occasionally drop strong hints). Thanks to the Ron Paul presidential campaign of 2007-2008, LRC has become one of the ten most popular popular political sites on the internet, much to the consternation of the power elite (for example, the site is blocked to all or most overseas servicemen by the military). William Norman Grigg is one of the site's most popular and prolific writers. I believe he is very well respected by the site's readership, so his comments (as follows) may encourage at least a few close-minded LRC readers to study 9/11 Truth in a little greater detail:
The Old 'False-Flag Trick'
by William Norman Grigg
[December 31, 2009]
(Peter Lance took note of my Daily Kos diary entry titled "The Wreck of the Patrick Fitzgerald", and although he and I might never agree on the true nature of "al Qaeda", there is something fundamentally wrong about the way that Patrick Fitzgerald has gone after Lance and HarperCollins, threatening legal action if the trade paperback version of Triple Cross saw the light of day. It seems to me that somebody wants the information in Triple Cross suppressed. In my opinion, it is the story of Ali Mohamed, still unknown to so many Americans, and other people around the world, that is causing such a fuss. Anyhow, take a look at Lance's latest article, and decide for yourself just what is going on here. -rep.)
by Peter Lance - July 15th, 2009
Seven weeks ago Patrick Fitzgerald, the most intimidating Federal prosecutor in America, sent my publisher (HarperCollins) and me a letter threatening to sue us for libel if Triple Cross, a book I wrote, critical of his anti-terrorism track record, was published.
Yesterday marked the four week anniversary of the book's pub date and although it's been out for a month, we're still waiting for his summons and complaint.
It was the fourth threat letter that Fitzgerald had sent since October 2007 and the man who’d succeeded in getting New York Times reporter Judith Miller jailed for 85 days in the CIA leak probe, was growing impatient.
"To put it plain and simple," Fitzgerald wrote, "if in fact you publish the book this month and it defames me or casts me in a false light, HarperCollins will be sued." ...
What Is Patrick Fitzgerald Trying to Hide from the Public?
By Rory O'Connor, MediaChannel.org. Posted June 12, 2009.
Powerful prosecutor and public figure Patrick Fitzgerald has been waging a chilling private jihad aimed at "killing" a book critical of him.
Okay, so he's one of the "sexiest men alive" -- but what does Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago and Special Counsel in the CIA leak case, have against us poor, unsexy journalists? It's bad enough that Fitzie won't answer my questions: ("Rory. I just wanted to get back to you and let you know that I am going to decline to be interviewed. Thank you. Pat") It's worse that he was responsible for the jailing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who spent 85 days behind bars. Now comes word that Fitzgerald, who must have too much time on his hands now that Scooter Libby has been freed and Rod Blagojevich indicted, spent much of the last year and a half going after another journalist, Peter Lance, in an attempt to kill a new edition of Lance's investigative book Triple Cross by threatening to sue both the author and his publisher for libel.
I don't agree with Rory's statement that we think "that Mohamed’s intimate relations with the FBI and CIA are proof of government involvement in a 9/11 plot." I see it more as a history lesson of the kind of practices the U.S. Government takes part in. As Peter Dale Scott says, "one of al-Qaeda’s top trainers in terrorism and how to hijack airplanes was an operative for FBI, CIA, and the Army." - Jon
Powerful prosecutor’s efforts to suppress book virtually guarantees elevated sales

Peter Lance should be thanking Patrick Fitzgerald right now, even as the attorneys’ checks are being signed.
If it were not for the U.S. Attorney who famously prosecuted I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, the former Vice President’s Chief of Staff, the re-release of Lance’s stunning tale of mishandled espionage leading up to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, might be overlooked.

(A slightly older video here, from August 8, 2007 - good biographical background on Scott, as well as a long+talk+about+the+book.)
"9/11 was the largest homicide by far in American history, yet it has never been adequately investigated. The public has been told of a conspiracy that included terrorist conspirators organized and financed abroad. But if U.S. defenses had functioned on that day as they had previously, the four planes at a minimum should have been intercepted by fighter aircraft. Yet we are told that even this did not happen. There is a domestic side to 9/11 as well, about which we still know next to nothing. Key evidence requested by the commission was initially withheld until subpoenas were issued, and some evidence was deliberately destroyed. Worse, there are systematic suppressions of evidence in the 9/11 Commission Report itself, along with unresolved contradictions in testimony and occasional misrepresentations of some crucial facts.
This chapter and the next will explore these issues and make the case that Vice President Cheney is himself a suspect in the events of 9/11 who needs to be investigated further."
- Peter Dale Scott, The Road to 9/11, p.194 (emphasis added)
In a major new book from the The University of California Press, author Peter Dale Scott turns up the heat on the George Walker Bush administration, (with a spotlight focused firmly on Vice President Cheney), and presents a carefully researched scholarly volume that offers several challenges to the official narrative of 9/11 as presented in the 9/11 Commission Report.
Scott's case against Cheney is presented toward the end of a text that is much more than just another volume focused on the events of 9/11. With the craftsmanship of a published author and English Professor, Scott uses his expertise to take the reader on a guided tour of recent American history, placing 9/11 within a context-rich environment rife with malfeasance, malice, and the never-ending meddling of rich and powerful entities, through proxy politicians and organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Heritage Foundation.
What we are seeing right now is one of the last, pathetic attempts of this administration to save itself from the truth about 9/11. First they rolled out KSM, with his confessions about 9/11 and every other terrorist plot in the last twenty years. As if they really expect us to believe in the first place something which has been entirely mediated through the Pentagon and CIA after three years in a secret torture prison, there are gaping holes in KSM's story. First off, he "admitted" to a terror plot against a building for which the planning didn't even begin until 2006... and yet he's supposedly been in custody for three or four years now. Secondly, he supposedly admits to killing journalist Daniel Pearl. But someone else has already been brought in for that killing- Omar Sheikh. Notice how US-Pakistani relations have been cooling off lately? Maybe it's to do with the fact that Pakistani President General Musharaff outed Omar Sheik about six months ago as an MI-6 agent.
Legislation has been introduced by U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) to require registration of bloggers with more than 500 readers. To register (in other words, ask permission to enjoin in a priviledge) and become regulated (taxation is one form of regulation) means being subject to administrative, bureaucratic control. Once registered, failure to comply then most assuredly renders one subject to government force and violence. By my posting here, and assuming the readers of 911blogger to exceed 500, then I would be required to register. I ain't gonna do it. 911blogger readers in Louisiana, it's time to call your senator out.
Actually, I see this as a good sign. This means that they are afraid, very afraid. The government, the mainstream media, the globalist elite are very afraid. However, as to be expected and just like any cornered animal, they are lashing out ferociously in their defense. This is only the beginning.... so, get ready. The full text of three articles on Vitter's bill, with links, can be found below the rest of my two-cents worth.
OK guys, here's Peter Dale Scott latest, great to have a man like him on our side!

JFK and 9/11
Insights Gained from Studying Both
by Dr. Peter Dale Scott
Global Research, December 20, 2006
The assassination of John F. Kennedy took place 43 years ago on Friday, November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas. The following text is the transcript of a lecture delivered by Peter Dale Scott in Dallas on November 18, 2006.
When I first imagined doing this talk I thought well I probably knew more at this stage about 9/11 than most people here, who are professionally concerned with JFK.1 But in preparing this talk, which I only began last Monday, has been a real learning experience for me. Taking a lot of things which I had already knew about each, but which I had never really put together before -- when I did they gave me a clearer view of what was happening behind the scenes in both operations. Because certain things repeat themselves.

(Hopefully he'll get his statement past the mods )
"…from Democracy Now:
“Ali Mohamed was a member of Osama bin Laden's inner circle who operated freely within the United States for years before 9/11. Despite being a top al Qaeda operative, he managed to become a naturalized US citizen, join the US Army, get posted to the military base where Green Berets and Delta Force train and infiltrate both the CIA and FBI. And while he was an FBI informant he smuggled bin Laden in and out of Afghanistan and helped plan the attacks on US embassies in Africa. He ended up playing a pivotal role in 9/11…”
This is absolutely outrageous!
Hey, Congress, are you listening?!?!?"
(links in original).
While I don't agree with the "Incompetency Argument," this article is sympathetic to the truth movement and certainly raises valid questions regarding intelligence community links with Al Qaeda.
Before it becomes too late, and the case too cold, is it still possible to determine what happened on 9/11—and why? Did some version of the MIHOP or LIHOP conspiracy theories actually take place? - Rory O'Connor
What if I told you that a member of Osama bin Laden's inner circle operated with impunity within the United States for years before September 11? That despite being an ardent and avowed jihadi, he managed to become a naturalized citizen, to join the US Army, to get posted to the Special Warfare Center where Green Berets and Delta Force train, and to work with both the CIA and the FBI? And all the while he was a top al Qaeda operative, hosting its second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri when he traveled to the US in the 1990's to raise money, and training both bin Laden's personal bodyguard and radical Muslims who would go on to assassinate Jewish militant Meir Kahane and detonate a truck bomb at the World Trade Center? Would you take it as evidence that our so-called intelligence community was abjectly incompetent and dysfunctional in the months and years before 9/11? Or would you see it as further proof that the powers-that-be were the powers behind 9/11, either "making it happen on purpose", or alternately "letting it happen on purpose?"
This 911.blogger.com Blog entry (reproducing the online petition of 9/11 widows) just made it to the Digg frontpage (with 132 diggs right now). It may soon be off again from the "all diggs" frontpage, but it will likely stay for a few more hours on the "politics" frontpage.
