Face the Shadow First:
Seeking the Hidden Dimensions of American and Global Politics
Probe Beneath the Surface of the Obama Era at the “Understanding Deep Politics” Conference
in Santa Cruz, May 14-16
By Byron Belitsos
Some say it began with the invasion of Iraq. Others, with the inauguration of George W. Bush for his second term. Many point to the day of 9/11. But those in the know—including ten distinguished speakers headlining the “Understanding Deep Politics” Conference in Santa Cruz this May 14-16—trace the era of deep politics further back: some to JFK’s assassination; others, to the aftermath of World War II. And a few speakers in Santa Cruz will stretch us back to Hitler, Lenin, Weishaupt, or Machiavelli, from there to ancient secret societies, and even back to the dawn of human governance itself—in the belief that conscious political deception is an inescapable feature of human nature. But all agree on the general definition of deep politics: It refers to government in which two dimensions of action always coexist: overt and covert, or benign and utterly ruthless.

CrossTalk on 9/11: Whodunit? 25.5 Minutes Russia Today March 10
With Guest: Ian Henshall, Annie Machon, Richard Gage
In this edition of CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle asks his guests why discussion of the events of 9/11 continue to attrack so much attention but is all but banned in the media mainstream.
Last weekend, from October 9 to 11, Debora Blake and Annie Machon organized “Vers La Vérité” in Paris, France. The event was sponsored in part by ReOpen911 France. “Vers La Vérité” was a mix of public and private events where each sub-event was designed to facilitate communication between people who share common concerns on important issues, including 9/11. It was not a 100% 9/11 Truth conference. The goal was to position 9/11 in the broader context of related and equally disturbing issues such as illegal wars and reduction of civil liberties.
They kicked off the event with a press conference on Friday morning attended by a journalist from a mainstream newspaper, France Soir and the independent TéléLibre. The mayor of Paris's second district introduced Cynthia who made a brief statement and took some questions. Annie Machon also spoke briefly.
Following the Vers La Vérité event in Paris on October 9-11, KPFK in Los Angeles will be interviewing organizers Annie Machon and Debora Blake tonight, Oct. 13 from 8 to 9 pm PST, 11pm East Coast, 5:15 Central Europe. To listen live, http://www.kpfk.org/listen-live.html
Cynthia McKinney, keynote speaker at Vers La Vérité, led the discussion with Annie and Debora.

Annie Machon, former British intelligence agent, worked in counter-subversion and counter-terrorism departments at Mi5. After witnessing gross mismanagement and state-sponsored murder, Machon resigned and blew the whistle on these state crimes. Machon stands with many respected academics that believe the official 9/11 narrative is insufficient to explain the events as they occured, and therefore must be re-investigated. Annie Machon will be on a Canada-wide tour this May. Below are the Ontario tour stops:

(It's been over 10 years since Annie Machon and David Shayler resigned from MI5, to blow the whistle on an act of False Flag terror by British intelligence in Libya, and other deceptive practices by intelligence agencies in the UK and abroad. In 2006, Machon gave a Keynote speech at the landmark Chicago 9/11 Truth Conference, introducing her story to a wider audience. In 2006-7, Machon organised three UK and European tours for William Rodriguez. She traveled and spoke with him at over 40 engagements, last year she spoke in California. She has also organised European speaking tours for Richard Gage and David Ray Griffin, and shared a platform with Cynthia McKinney in Amsterdam in 2007. Starting in May, Machon will be speaking at a number of places in Canada. To learn more about this speaking tour, and to possibly add your city to the itinerary, please contact Elizabeth Woodworth: elizwood(at)shaw.ca or Patrick Borden: directors(at)vancouver911truth.org. -rep.)
911blogger: Ms. Machon, what is your current relationship with David Shayler? Do you still believe that Shayler had a genuine breakdown, or was his breakdown perhaps premediated, with the intent of making 9/11 Truth advocates look batty?
Machon: David and I separated almost three years ago, and I'm now living in Germany with my partner and Molly the cat.
I have very little contact with David now, which is strange after the intensity of our years together, when we blew the whistle, had to go on the run around Europe, watch as our friends, family, supporters and journalists were arrested, live in France for 3 years and survive two high-profile court cases.
It's a shame it all happened just before the internet, electronic media archives, and youtube were endemic - otherwise people would be able to see, at the click of a mouse, just how big a scandal it was, what we went through, and how vicious the response was from the government and intelligence agencies. The story has been largely forgotten and spun by the media, and my book (which described the full case) was buried.
In 2007 I traveled across Europe with William Rodriguez and Annie Machon while filming my Feature length documentary The Elephant In The Room. We traveled across the south west of England, France, Holland and Germany for Just over two weeks. Spreading the word about William's experience of the events of 9/11 which directly contradicts the Official story. Annie Machon the former MI5 officer turned whistle blower organised the tour and spoke before William about her experience working at the heart of the secret state.
this is a re post as the last version needed a slight technical amendment - enjoy!
MI5 Whistleblower and author of "Spies, Lies and Whistleblowers", Annie Machon, will be interviewed on BBC Radio Suffolk on the James Hazell show this coming Monday (8th) during a segment about, strangely enough, "Whistleblowing".

This broadcast coincides very nicely with the event arranged to take place during that very evening in Ipswich, at which Annie will be speaking prior to a screening of the London Independent Film Festival's Best UK Documentary "The Elephant in the Room". Director, Dean Puckett, will also be joining us to answer questions.

As part of the 11th of Every Month Action Campaign, a London 911 Truth group held a protest at Parliament Square, yesterday.
9/11 Truth Group Protest At Parliament
Mick Meaney | 13.06.2007 13:40 | Terror War | London
Among the protesters, last man out of the Twin Towers and five times honoured hero, William Rodriguez with ex MI5 officer and co-chair of the 911 Truth Campaign (Britain & Ireland), Annie Machon.
The protesters apparently received a good reception from the general public and the group hopes to double its numbers by next month, when another event will take place, again on the 11th.
