Former Vice President Dick Cheney suggested Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder wants a "show trial" for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged 9/11 conspirators who are to be tried in a civilian court just blocks away from where the World Trade Center once stood.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney suggested Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder wants a "show trial" for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged 9/11 conspirators who are to be tried in a civilian court just blocks away from where the World Trade Center once stood.

In an interview with conservative talk radio host Scott Hennen on Monday, Cheney called it a "big mistake" to try Mohammed in a civilian court rather than before a military tribunal.

Daniel Bland’s Open Letter to Eric Holder, America’s Attorney General:

Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States of America
750 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, D.C 20530

Mr. Holder,

The tragic events of September 11, 2001 have drastically changed the global landscape. We have passed new laws which have destroyed constitutional rights and freedoms granted by our forefathers. We have invaded two sovereign nations, the latter of which we now know to be based on deceptive intelligence and blatant lies by senior government officials. The global events that have transpired since that fateful morning have divided our nation and the entire world. I write to you because I have an idea regarding how we can prove to the American public the truth regarding what really happened on 9/11. We can settle the debate once and for all about who really murdered nearly three thousand of our fellow countrymen, and murdered millions more innocent global citizens around the world under the pretext of the 9/11 Attacks.

Protest march planned at the University of Wyoming

September 10, 2009 will be a sad day in history for many of us who attend the University of Wyoming. On this day, the newly named Cheney International Center will be dedicated with Cheney present at the ceremony. The building houses the offices for the International Studies program, Study Abroad, and International Programs at the University of Wyoming. The naming of the building has caused anger and controversy throughout the state of wyoming and on the university campus. As a student of the International Studies program, it is an insult that the name of the building implies that our program sponsors Cheney's political ideology and foreign policy. Furthermore, the decision to dedicate the building on September 10th is extremely arrogant on the part of the administration of the University of Wyoming, especially to those of us who know the truth of 9/11. The dedication is scheduled to take place on September 10th at 10:30am in front of the Cheney International Center. Students and activists in the community are planning a protest march to occur at the same time. For more information on the Cheney International Center check out these links

Affidavit in support of April Gallop...

Attorney William Veal asked if I were interested in supporting April Gallop's lawsuit against Cheney, Rumsfeld and Meyers and if I could make some statements from my perspective and analysis being a pilot and former Air Traffic Controller. I agreed to do so and provided a lengthy [and less than professionally written] affidavit covering the aviation, NORAD, radar and other data research and conclusions which I have accumulated so far.

Its important to note that I believe that the FDR for AA77? has been tampered with and any conclusions based upon that data is subject to such errors, but I made some points based upon the FDR anyway. The same goes for the RADES radar data that I have been able to analyze...I believe that the RADES radar data has been scrubbed or compromised also. However, it is data that has been made available to us and we need to look at it for what it is.

"What Hit the Pentagon?"

Noted 9/11 research Dr. Frank Legge has published a revised version of his paper with additional notes and discussion, “What Hit the Pentagon?” The paper is available at the Journal of 9/11 Studies:

His first version of the paper generated a great deal of discussion about this important issue. In presenting this revision, Dr. Legge notes:

“This version has been prepared to take into account a number of issues raised by critics and defenders of the original paper. Discussion of the implications of accepting or rejecting the official position that a 757 hit the Pentagon has been expanded and clarified. I am very grateful for the help provided. All significant alterations have been identified and discussed in footnotes.”

No doubt this revised version will encourage further discussion of what hit the Pentagon, and perhaps more importantly, a renewed push to obtain release of withheld video footage that will show unequivocally what hit the Pentagon – and a renewed interest in the whistleblower testimony of Secretary of Transportation (at the time) Norman Mineta.

ZAHEDAN: A top Sunni rebel who is awaiting execution in Iran said on Tuesday that his militant group received orders from the United States to launch terror attacks in the Islamic republic.

Abdolhamid Rigi, brother of shadowy Jundallah (Soldiers of God) group leader Abdolmalek Rigi, told reporters his brother was an Al-Qaeda point man in Iran six years ago but that later the group broke off ties with him.

Movie "New American Century" translated into english

The New American Century is an italian movie made by film-maker Massimo Mazzucco, recently translated into english. The movie presents the historical, philosophical, economical and political background (some of which is practically unknown to the general public) to 9/11 attacks and the wars that followed. Full version is linked here, DVD is available for purchase here.

  • "Historically accurate, narratively captivating, The New American Century is one of the best films about the facts behind the 9/11 attacks". -- Webster G. Tarpley
  • "The New American Century is a stunning film. It should be seen as widely as possible, in cinemas, bars, clubs, at meetings and, of course, through the internet. I'm sure the film will continue to be a source of debate and political education for many years." -- Ken Loach

    Cheney's Secret CIA Program

    Worse Than Foreign Assassinations?

    By Digby

    July 14, 2009 "Hullabaloo" --- Pretty much every news outlet has confirmed that the secret CIA program held from Congress by Dick Cheney concerned targeted assassinations of Al Qaeda members abroad, basically the "executive assassination ring" discussed by Sy Hersh earlier this year.

    Dick Cheney, the former vice president, ordered a highly classified CIA operation hidden from Congress because it pushed the limits of legality by planning to assassinate al-Qaida operatives in friendly countries without the knowledge of their governments, according to former intelligence officials.

    Former counter-terrorism officials who retain close links to the intelligence community say that the hidden operation involved plans by the CIA and the military to launch operations, similar to those by Israel's Mossad intelligence service, to hunt down and kill al-Qaida activists abroad without informing the governments concerned, even though some were regarded as friendly if unreliable.

    Cheney head of domestic terror task force since May 2001

    I've just stumbled over the web archive CNN broadcast from 9/11, around 9.30 am that morning, when the anchor said, Cheney was appointed head on terror task force by the US admin.


    I didn't know that little fact, and am not sure if I ever read a word about this? Is this common knowledge?

    I found some corroboration for the info:


    A report that states that: "Bush asked Vice President Dick Cheney to lead the task force, which
    will explore how attacks against U.S. citizens or personnel at home and
    overseas may be detected and stopped."

    or not to be stopped, as the head of domestic terror task force could be read in a more sinnister fashion.

    CIA probes could derail Obama's plans

    by Kevin Connolly
    BBC, July 13, 2009

    In the world of intelligence gathering the past never really goes away - it stays around to haunt the present and set traps for the future.

    The issue of how America conducted its "war on terror" - who it tortured and detained and on whose orders - is full of such traps.

    We know that Barack Obama knows this - he talks about the need to move forward rather than to look back - but that is no guarantee that he will be able to resist calls for some sort of investigation of the Bush administration's intelligence policies.

    The argument from the human rights lobby and the left of the Democratic Party appears to have gained ground in Washington in the last week or so - some sort of enquiry is now necessary, they believe, to re-assert the rule of law and restore America to the moral high ground of international diplomacy.

    Dirty linen

    The case against re-opening the wounds of the recent past lacks moral clarity, perhaps, but it is no less passionately held among Republicans.

    CIA Has a Duty to Investigate 9/11

    CIA director Leon Panetta says it’s almost as if Dick Cheney wishes to
    see another attack on the United States to prove he is right in
    criticizing President Obama for stopping CIA’s “harsh interrogation”
    techniques of terrorism suspects.

    Whatever the politics du jour, CIA under a new, accountable management is
    duty-bound to investigate 9-11 events.


    Did Cheney Receive Information About 9/11 From The NSA Prior To 9/11?

    Dick Cheney Only Had to Delay Things a COUPLE OF SECONDS to Reach his Long-Sought Goals


    CIA director Leon Panetta told the New Yorker:

    When you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point.

    News commentator Ed Schultz said today that Cheney is wishing for a terrorist attack on the U.S.

    What should we make of all this?

    Well, everyone knows that Cheney is ruthless:

    Dick Uncut: "Daily Show" Calls Out Cheney For Blaming 9/11 On Richard Clarke (VIDEO)

    Text posted in full for posterity- follow the links for video of DailyShow at HuffPo link, and link to ThinkProgress, which has one of their rare good articles, taking apart Cheney's comments- with video of Cheney- direct link to ThinkProgress below:


    At a recent appearance at the National Press Club, Dick Cheney blamed Richard Clarke for leaving the nation vulnerable to attack ahead of 9/11 saying, "He obviously missed it." Cheney was referring to the threat from al Qaeda which Clarke had emphatically warned the administration about several times before the fall of 2001.

    Jon Stewart was not pleased with Dick Cheney for these accusations, nor the members of the National Press Club who failed to challenge him about the assertion. In a segment called "Dick Uncut," Stewart used dark humor to take both the former Vice President and the media to task for the events leading up to 9/11 through the waterboarding of detainees. It simultaneously makes you laugh and want to punch a whole through the wall.
