Millennial Math: 9+11=1984

This is an article published yesterday on Common Dreams by Randall Amster. The comments posted on the thread are already pretty good but it wouldn't hurt to express more disgust to Common Dreams and also this author for such a hit piece.

COMMON DREAMS- It’s been a decade since the day that changed everything -- or at least, the one that finally laid it all bare. Over the years, I’ve tried to confront it, rewrite it, debunk it, historicize it, mock it, and ultimately ignore it, all to no avail. It’s not going anywhere, this Trojan Horse of the new millennium, this farce that launched a thousand ships. We’re stuck with it, even though no matter how we crunch the numbers it still doesn’t really add up. Or does it?

9/11 Truth and the Art of Whale Wars

I was downtown on 14th street in Manhattan on 9/11. It was surreal. It didn't make sense to me then either. How could both of those buildings fall down in exactly the same manner? And what about building 7?

I’ve been monitoring and participating in the 9/11 truth movement every day since 2005 . I am obsessed. I am also in a constant state of disbelief about how few people really care about stuff like 9/11 truth, or anything else beyond Dancing with the Stars and the latest Wii game. It remains surreal.

I have found it challenging (to say the least) converting people to 9/11 truth. Despite my best efforts I have only just begun to scratch the surface. There is so much resistance amongst well-to-do “smart” people. It doesn’t make sense. How much more evidence, testimony, and research do these people need to convince them it wasn’t necessarily 19 Saudi Hijackers and that there was a huge cover-up? What is really frustrating, however, is when you do convert someone and then they say something like ‘there’s nothing we can do about it, let’s go watch the Giants.’

Jaipur Serial Terror Attack: A Political Analysis <-- commentary from INDIA

Once again the common Indians have become the victims of terror attacks and we condemn the apathy as well as complicity of the Indian state from protecting the masses. Our organization is committed to exposing the politics of terror and in our analysis, the strategy of terrorism has replaced the politics of communal riots in dividing, weakening and communalising the masses.

In our estimation the reprehensible terror attacks that occured in the streets of Jaipur today need to be analysed in the political context.

They have occurred on the eve of major global demonstrations against the Zionist Apartheid State of Israel. Thus the news on the global media channels will be dominated by one more instance of "Muslim Terrorism" and far worse. The news regarding global opposition to Zionist Israel will be relegated to the inside pages. The breaking news on CNN, BBC etc will be "more Islamic terror in Jaipur.....". If it was not for the tragic earthquake in China, Jaipur would have been the lead story.

Reclaiming The Viral Vernacular

Reclaiming the Viral Vernacular
The biggest problem that 9/11 truth activists face is the attack on language specifically left/right rational/intuition reality. Let me paraphrase some of yesterday’s mainstream political quotes. Mitt Rommney dropped out because he did’nt want to jeopardize losing the War on Terror. Tom DeLay stated that their was no science to support Global Warming. Anne Coulter won’t support McCain because he doesn’t support the swift boaters. And there are are tons more by every candidate that are jaw droppingly paralyzing. I find myself numbed to the core by this presidential campaign. And I wonder how will mainstream America ever get to a place where they can ever consider 9/11 truth with this kind of withering assult on the soul.? I’m sure a lot of you have experienced this. How have intelligent people’s views been so throughly warped? Is it to late to even start a correction process? I really wonder now if it is possible to pull the wool back? Do you? Yes! It all starts with 9/11. (Really it starts with the First World trade center bombing, into Oklahoma City, and 9/11)

9/11 Truth vs. 9/11 Speculation

I liked this, so I thought i'd share it:

Two movements: The 9/11truth vs. 9/11speculation movements.

When I first got into this, I didn't know which websites to trust. The big challenge at the time was 911review.com vs 911review.org. I soon realized that I could look at the links on each page to see quite clearly who these projects had decided to endorse. The line was quite distinct between the two, and I knew one of them had to be a shady enterprise.

The same pattern can be seen today, and the two sides haven't changed much since then. Now we have 911research vs. 911researchers, and the Scholars for Truth vs the Scholars for Truth and Justice. Take a look at the two lists of web links below to get a sense of what I'm suggesting. (Notice that - scholarsfor911truth/911scholars.org/scholarsfor911truth.org - the Fetzer scholars website is three of the links in the second list, and going to that site you see that there is a new banner link to 911researchers, a Seigel/Haupt production.)

9/11 Truth in the Columbus Dispatch

9/11, Iraq cause some to question our leaders

Sherry Clark arrived for breakfast with an armload of DVDs whose messages cast the shadow of skepticism over the official line on the 9/11 attack.

Through forkfuls of pancakes, the Delaware, Ohio, woman conjured up images of shrouded schemes and dark lurkings, government complicity and war-industry profiteering.

A lunchbox purse sported a get-the-truthout sticker. A lapel button noted that polite women seldom make history.

"I want to break the conspiracy of silence," Clark said. "9/11 is the exclamation point to everything. Sept. 11 is the excuse for all of our civil-liberty compromises and the war."

For a fleeting second, with the sun cresting on the eastern horizon, I thought I could hear the engine of Japanese pilot Mitsuo Fuchida’s B5N torpedo bomber as he banked toward Pearl Harbor’s Battleship Row.

In Dallas, the black presidential limo turned toward Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository as JFK drifted into the cross hairs of a rifle sight.
