More evidence surfaces of official deception and coverup in Pan Am 103 bombing

Explosives analysis concludes semtex theory "scientifically implausible" in Pan Am 103 explosion

A scientific analysis of the Crown's discredited theory that approximately 1lb of semtex contained in a Toshiba radio caused the destruction of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, has concluded that the notion is "scientifically implausible."

The report, by Dr Ludwig de Braeckeleer agrees with the findings of John H Parkes, a former MOD contractor and explosives engineer who assisted in the rescue operations in Lockerbie, and subsequently submitted a report of his findings to the then Scottish Secretary Malcolm Rifkind. Parkes was never called as a witness to the trial.

Dr de Braeckeleer's findings reiterate the initial findings from US sources, that the Crown theory does not stand up to forensic scrutiny.

"In the immediate aftermath of the tragedy, researchers at the Centre of Explosives Technology Research in Socorro, New Mexico, estimated that up to thirty pounds of explosive was needed to destroy a Boeing 747, if the explosion had occured in the container. We agree with that estimate," the report says.

PBS "NOVA: Inside The Spy Factory" comment forum is now open!

(You can watch the documentary here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/spyfactory/program.html )

In case anyone didn't already know, PBS broadcast a very slick and almost unbelievable hour long attempt to reinforce the "incompetence theory" of 9/11.

Comments are now open and registration is pretty straightforward.

Kyle Hence has made a good start, let's give him plenty of support!

Go to:

Be civil, have your facts in order and keep it short and to the point.

Let's let PBS know that we are watching, brothers and sisters, and that we don't buy the BIG LIE.

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

How mainstream thought attempts to disarm conspiracy theories.

Someone started a thread over in the General Discussion forum at Democraticunderground.com on how the mainstream attempts to link people who question the establishment or mainstream position on issues like 911 as suffering from delusions or mental illness. Here's the link if you want to check it out.

End Presidential Pardons and Clemency - An Amendment

End Presidential Pardons and Clemency

An Amendment -

The president shall not have the right to
grant pardons or clemency.

Michael Collin

The prospect of the criminal in chief, George W. Bush, issuing pardons to his co-conspirators is repugnant to all citizens who've paid any degree of attention over the last eight years.

He neglected his duty prior to 911 resulting in a devastating attack on the nation.

He started an illegal war based on lies that caused injury and death to tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers and the deaths of over 1.2 million Iraqi civilians.

He ordered the illegal wire tapping of citizens, a clear violation of law.

9/11 Suspects Ask to Make 'Confessions' - AP story

By ANDREW O. SELSKY, AP

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Dec. 8) – The alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks and four co-defendants told a military judge Monday they want to immediately confess at their war-crimes tribunal, setting up likely guilty pleas and their possible executions.

The five said they decided on Nov. 4, the day President-elect Barack Obama was elected to the White House, that they were abandoning all efforts to defend themselves against the capital charges. It was as if they wanted to rush toward convictions before Obama — who has vowed to end the war-crimes trials and close Guantanamo — takes office.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and another defendant said at their arraignment in June they would welcome execution as a path to martyrdom. But word that they were giving up their defense came as a shock to some of the victims' families.

Media Matters Catalogues Gibson-Bush Interview Spin, Omits PNAC!
http://911reports.wordpress.com/2008/12/07/media-matters-catalogues-gibson-bush-interview-spin-omits-pnac/

Bush gave an interview to ABC's Charlie Gibson, in which Bush referred to the "intelligence failure" about WMD as his "biggest regret". MediaMatters.org, supposedly a right-wing spin watchdog, ignores PNAC and pre-Bush Administration Iraq War plans, but notes the corporate media's failure to point out that there are many instances in the public record that make it clear that the Bush Administration was planning to go to war with Iraq after 9/11. The ones Media Matters notes include as the "Downing Street Memo”, Richard Clarke's statement in his book that Bush asked him the day after 9/11 to find a link to Hussein, his report to Condi Rice a week later that there was none, the Senate Intelligence WMD Inquiry, and other media reports.

India Attack Likely a False-Flag

Many people wonder what the purpose of the 9/11 Truth movement is. It includes peace as a very important goal but also includes educating the public on the broader and less understood political tool of FALSE-FLAG terrorism. Thanks to the 9/11 Truth Movement, this term is now beginning to gain mainstream recognition by the general public. Even this evening I heard liberal radio host Thom Hartmann mention the term in relation to vice president Dick Cheney's latest idea to dress up US navy seals as Iranians and have our American boys shoot at them in order to provoke war with Iran (yes I kid you not). The film Terrorstorm also added to the exposure by documenting the history of false-flag terrorism, and even exposes the more recent 7/7 London Bombings in 2005 as a likely false-flag operation.

Because we must decide: Mort Sahl's warning echoes for 9/11 activists

In his 1968 interview with Perry Adams, Mort Sahl explains the urgency of bringing to justice the conspirators behind the public execution of JFK. After reviewing the evidence, Sahl had made the decision to assist New Orleans DA Jim Garrison in his investigation. As a consequence of his vocal support for Garrison, Sahl--whose face made the cover of (CIA's) Time Magazine in 1960--was blacklisted and his successful mainstream career as an entertainer came to an end overnight.

Sahl's words and his sacrifice will not be lost on the generation of activists working to expose the truth of 9/11 and other shattering acts of state terrorism.

On 10/3/08, retired Four-Star General Wesley Kanne Clark took part in a discussion about International Justice at the UCLA Law School. Clark, who had been Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) of NATO during Operation Allied Force in the Kosovo War, insisted that international justice is important but in conflict with the long history in the United States of acting as seen fit in the moment.

CBS News archivist claims "impossible to find" Rather/Giuliani "black box" footage

The following query was mailed by an associate to footage@cbs.com

"I write to request all available information concerning the segment of archival CBS News footage that is currently available on YouTube here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_RbtEkjqIU&feature=related#

Specifically, I seek answers to these questions:

1) What is the date and time of the original airing?

2) Is there any subsequent update, follow-up or correction in the archives regarding the contents of this bulletin?

3) Mr. Rather's language indicates he has seen and intends to air a "video" of Rudolph Giuliani "holding up" a "flight recorder box" recovered from Gound Zero. Does CBS News possess video of Rudolph Giuliani matching Rather's description? If not, did CBS News possess such video when Rather announced this bulletin? If CBS News no longer possesses such video, what became of it and who currently has custody of it?

4) If CBS still has custody of the video of Rudolph Giuliani described in #3, what steps might be taken to acquire a copy of this footage?

Thank you for your cooperation and kind attention.

Respectfully,"

9/11 Accomplices vie for US Presidency
Obama and McCain campaigns fan "war on terrorism" hysteria

By Larry Chin

Global Research, September 7, 2008

In his much-ballyhooed acceptance speech, Barack Obama declared that he would "finish the fight against the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11". If Obama wishes to be true to his promise, he could begin with his own running mate, Senator Joe Biden.

Biden and the ISI chief

Biden was one of several top Washington officials who met with Lieutenant General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) on and around September 11, 2001.

The ISI is a foreign branch of the CIA. "Al-Qaeda" is a covert operation that is managed by Anglo-American military-intelligence. Ahmad, the "9/11 money man" who delivered funds to alleged lead suicide hijacker Mohammed Atta prior to the attacks, met personally with Biden on September 13, 2001.

WeAreChangeLA questions Rep. Grace Napolitano about 9-11 cover-up and she glibly says "We know they are [guilty of treason]"

On July 18, 2008, Latino leaders in local and national politics converged upon the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown LA to discuss a whole array of issues from a progressive Latino perspective. Attending this event, among others were a few Congresspeople. I got a chance to catch up with Representative Grace Napolitano, from Norwalk, CA, and let her know about the information we had delivered to federal judge George H. Wu on July 11, 2008 regarding the treasonous implications for the executive and legislative branches of the ongoing 9-11 cover-up.
