Dutch MP Geert Wilders... incites hatred against Muslims

Just Released: Fitna the Movie: Geert Wilders' film 16 minutes (English)

Here you have it live: The Information War promoting fear and hate.

The film says more about Wilders than about Islam. Does he belong to the same Bilderberg group who are behind the cartoons?

The Dutch MP Geert Wilders has upset the Muslim world before, by calling for a ban on the Koran and likening it to Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.

Using descriptions of Hell, and footage from 911, London 77, Bali, and beheading footage released hours after Abu Ghariab, Geert Wilders tries to incite hatred against Moslems:

(Please feel free to post the YouTube links far and wide. -rep.)

This is highly recommended viewing for those people trying to understand how it is that the truth of certain events, like 9/11, can be so successfully spun into something completely different by the people who want to make it so.

Misdirection at WND

Sept. 11 redux: Video shows jet vaporizing OR SO THEY SAY ...

"Test offers evidence to skeptics who cite lack of debris after Pentagon crash" WND's headline

You need to go to the site to see the vid and article. What is disturbing is that you can see the wings go through the block of cement, however, they fail to mention that there was no wing damage to the Pentagon building.

Also no mention of how thick the wall of the Pentagon is to their experiment wall, nor the grade of density of the cement used in their experimental wall, which appears to be about 4 feet thick. The F-4 is considerably smaller than a 757. In addition, WND does not show photos of the wall or debris after the experiment, so how do we know there wasn't any debris. I don't know about F-4 engines, but I do know that on a 757 the material for many of the parts of the engines: like fan blades and turbine blades are made from titanium or other extremely dense alloys.

Then they poll the reader: "Does the video change the way you think of 9/11?"

The 2008 Declaration: Standards and Strategies for 9/11 Truth

After months of cooperative effort, we are proud to announce "The 2008 Declaration: Standards and Strategies for 9/11 Truth." Many truth movement veterans came together after the 9/11/07 anniversary with concerns over the increasing influence of disinformation, disruption, partisanship, and irresponsible representation within the movement. This document is our response.

As we state clearly in the Declaration, we simply aim it to be a guide for others, not a divisive list of commandments. It's the best we could come up with, we hope it does some good.

The authors and supporters listed are not the only ones who participated in the creation of this Declaration. Some names may be added or removed as per individual request. We invite everyone who so wishes, to host or link to the Declaration.

Comments and questions are welcome on the TruthMove Forum.

9/11 Panel Study Finds That C.I.A. Withheld Tapes

This story contains classic examples of the psy-ops/disinformation techniques of "limited hang-out," "misdirection," "delay, delay, delay," and just getting the details of the matter so bollixed up the public will become confused and go away.

Here's a pretty good definition of "limited hang-out": A limited hangout is a form of deception, misdirection, or coverup often associated with intelligence agencies involving a release or "mea culpa" type of confession of only part of a set of previously hidden sensitive information, that establishes credibility for the one releasing the information who by the very act of confession appears to be "coming clean" and acting with integrity; but in actuality by withholding key facts is protecting a deeper crime and those who could be exposed if the whole truth came out.

What's the "whole truth?" The official story of 9/11 is false. Yes, we all know that, but this is a very big nail in its coffin. This is a big story and should be followed closely. This is also a good "detail" to bring up with friends who are still lost in the woods. Alvin

WASHINGTON — A review of classified documents by former members of the Sept. 11 commission shows that the panel made repeated and detailed requests to the Central Intelligence Agency in 2003 and 2004 for documents and other information about the interrogation of operatives of Al Qaeda, and were told by a top C.I.A. official that the agency had “produced or made available for review” everything that had been requested.

Stunning Example of Dis-Information at Work - Knocking the Strawman Over

If you have seen the film, 9-11 In Plane Site, you are familiar with the man known as Mike Walter of USA Today, even though you may have never heard his name. He is the man who was an eyewitness to the crash at the Pentagon and many have dishonestly used an interview he did on CNN on September 11th, 2001 to justify the idea that a missile, not AA77 hit the Pentagon on 9-11. Below is an excerpt from that interview that appeared in the 9-11 film, In Plane Site at approximately 6 minutes, 45 seconds into the film:

Simon Wiesenthal Center presents 9/11 sites alongside radical Jihadist sites to House Hearing on "Terrorism and the Internet"

Infowars Digg: http://digg.com/world_news/Wiesenthal_Center_presents_9_11_sites_alongside_radical_Jihadist_sites

CORRECTION: Bruce Hoffman is a former, not current RAND employee. Text corrected below.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2007, a House Homeland Security Subcommittee had a hearing on "Terrorism and the Internet".* The hearing featured presentations from several groups, including a former employee of the RAND Corporation, and Mark Weitzman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. The hearing was chaired by Democratic Rep. Jane Harman, and ranking Republican, Rep. Dave Reichert.

Toward the end of the hearing, Weitzman rolls out a PowerPoint presentation that presents a few 9/11 truth sites sandwiched in between websites that offer training in terrorist tactics, and a website that glorified the attack of 9/11. Among the websites presented under the heading "Internet: Incubator of 9/11 Conpiracies and Disinformation", are Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and other sites, such as Killtown's, who brought this Hearing to our attention.

Now, we wouldn't want anybody getting the wrong idea here. Here at 911blogger we are opposed to any and all terrorist activities, including STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM. Don't really care who the state is either. It's all bad.

Californians, if Harman is your representative, please set her straight. Washington state, if Reichert is your critter, don't let him absorb this crap with no static.

CSPAN has been more than fair to 9/11 skeptics. Last year they broadcast Alex Jones' American Scholars Symposium, in 2005, they broadcast David Ray Griffin, and they will probably listen to feedback regarding this broadcast.

View the hearing as a video stream here -- the pertinent section begins at the 43:31 mark, but I recommend watching the entire program, because there is so much disinformation in the broadcast itself, it's hard to know where to begin unraveling it.

translation of G. Stark's pamphlet on propaganda techniques

Interesting information from Hitler's Germany on propaganda, translated by Randall Bytwerk.

German Propaganda Archive Calvin College

Background: This is a translation of G. Stark's pamphlet on propaganda techniques. It was the first in a series of pamphlets produced by Goebbels' Reichspropaganda-Abteilung, the propaganda section of the Nazi Party. It aimed at providing information for Nazi propagandists in larger cities. This translation uses the third printing, at which point 55,000 copies were in circulation. The original runs 23 pages of text. It includes some material taken from an earlier Nazi brochure on propaganda, but develops matters in greater depth.

The source: G. Stark, Moderne politische Propaganda (Munich: Verlag Frz. Eher Nachf., 1930).

Interesting article, is it disinformation?

From TBR News October 22, 2007

http://www.tbrnews.org/Archives/a2774.htm

Never sure what to make of this. It may be disinformation, limited hangout, what have you. Part of the problem is, we really have limited ability to assess the credibility of the sources. Here is an excerpt:

"Reports to Department of Justice (FBI) and CIA to White House in re coming attacks: The President notified.

As it appeared that there would be such attacks for a certainty., our Embassy first of all contacted both the American Justice Department and the Central Intelligence Agency and appraised them of the seriousness of the situation. Eventually, the office of the Ambassador made contact with top aides of the Vice President Cheney.

9/11 Truth Movement Fights Back Against DISINFORMATION and AGENTS PROVOCATEURS

Quote:

Poisoning the Well and Cutting the Cheese

http://georgewashington.blogspot.com/2006/10/poisoning-well-and-cutting-cheese.html

Two highly effective forms of disinformation are spreading crazy theories and acting in a crazy manner.

Poisoning the Well

Most of us have heard the term "poisoning the well" in connection with false 9/11 theories. If you haven't, the idea is that people trying to discredit the 9/11 movement will intentionally spread false theories to discredit everyone who questions 9/11.

Spreading theories that are obviously nutty right-out-of-the box paints the entire movement with a negative color. But other theories that may at first appear to be attractive -- but are flawed or based on incomplete evidence and so can be definitively debunked by the government at a later time -- can also end up pulling the rug out from the entire 9/11 truth movement.
