History Commons

History Commons May Disappear

What is the History Commons?* One of the most important and invisible, useful and unknown websites on the internet — and without better funding, it may disappear from the web. You might not have heard of it, but it’s been used and referenced by an array of well-known investigative authors and journalists, including Glenn Greenwald, Craig Unger, James Ridgeway and Peter Lance; see section at this article’s end. HistoryCommons.org is a documentation & research tool driven by a relational database and public input, with editorial oversight. It’s proof-in-practice of the Mosaic Theory of Intelligence Gathering, but for the public interest, the people, our posterity and future generations. HistoryCommons.org is best known for the Complete 9/11 Timeline, but the site hosts over 30 timeline projects on diverse subjects such as elections, wars and foreign interventions, civil liberties, health care, climate change, and other important domestic and foreign policy issues.

Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks
New information released by the FBI has brought fresh scrutiny to the possibility that the “Dancing Israelis,” at least two of whom were known Mossad operatives, had prior knowledge of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

9/11 Commission and More – Additions to the 9/11 Timeline as of June 16, 2009

Some of the recently added entries go into more detail about the 9/11 Commission, which discovered the FAA was withholding documents from it in September 2003 and issued its first subpoena for them a month later. Soon after, the commission also subpoenaed the Pentagon, despite a last-ditch bid to avert it by the commission’s Vice Chairman Lee Hamilton, a good friend of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. In addition, Commissioner John Lehman repeatedly told the White House of Saudi links to the 9/11 plotters, but the administration was uninterested.

The 9/11 Commission, Karl Rove and Government Minders - Additions to the 9/11 Timeline as of May 10, 2009

Most of the new entries recently posted to the 9/11 Timeline concern the 9/11 Commission, in particular contacts between its executive director Philp Zelikow and White House official Karl Rove. Rove called Zelikow at the commission twice in June 2003 and again that September. When the commission's staff found out about the calls, they were furious and Zelikow told his secretary to stop logging his calls. Zelikow also reportedly understated the amount of his contacts with Rove in an interview with a reporter.

Day of 9/11, Londonistan - Additions to the 9/11 Timeline as of December 8, 2008

The main area for new entries in the 9/11 Timeline this week is the day of 9/11. A sergeant at NEADS passed on news of Flight 11's hijacking to colleagues at 8:38 a.m., after which NEADS technicians attempted to locate the flight. Flight 175 entered New York Center's airspace, making radio contact, at 8:40 a.m., shortly after which the military liaison at Boston Center called New York Center about Flight 11's hijacking. The order to launch fighters from Otis air force base was given at 8:45 a.m., although New Jersey Air National Guard fighters on a training mission at the same time were unaware of the attacks.

History Commons Is An Important Tool For 9/11 Truth

You may have noticed that lately I've been making movies that "force" people to go to www.historycommons.org (www.cooperativeresearch.org... sorry, it's a habit). I'm hoping people will see just how important a tool it can be.

They Wanted War, And They Got It

9/11 Timeline Update - Day of 9/11, Hijackers, the Saudi Connection - Additions as of March 16, 2008

There is a ton of new material about the Day of 9/11. There are more entries about the shootdown order, which could have been issued around 9:38 a.m., about 9:50 a.m., after 10:00 a.m., or about 10:18 a.m. Regarding military exercises, some NEADS staff were still unsure whether the day's military exercises had ended at 10:00 a.m., fighters from Otis were recalled from a training mission at about 9:03 a.m. and other jets on training were sent home at about 9:35 a.m. There were communication problems at NORAD and NEADS, which requested help from another air defence section around 10:00, and also for the three pilots scrambled from Langley.

Regarding Flight 93, the Regional Operations Center was notified of the hijack at 9:40 a.m., a business jet was asked to help locate the crash site, and a local farmer flew over the site, taking pictures. President Bush learned of the attack on the Pentagon shortly after it happened and requested security for his family. Otherwise, the fighters from Otis left their holding pattern at 9:13 a.m., Richard Clarke learned of a plane approaching the White House at 9:37 a.m., and a pilot from Langley AFB surveyed the Pentagon just after it was hit. The FAA and military still would not say if jets were launched in the evening, but the CIA's Near East Division figured out bin Laden was behind the attacks when the second plane hit the WTC.

There are also numerous new entries about the 9/11 hijackers, of whom much video footage remains unreleased. There is considerable confusion over the Flight 93 hijackers' arrival at Newark before the attacks--Ziad Jarrah seems to have arrived on three different flights on the same day--Marwan Alshehhi was considered a deserter from the UAE army in April 2000, and Saeed Algahmdi was inconveniently seen in the US before he officially arrived. The hijackers were seen with an unidentified Middle Eastern male just before the attacks and the FBI failed to help a security guard identity the hijackers at Dulles airport. Mohamed Atta's car was queried by police, a warrant for his arrest was issued, but Florida police failed to notice it. Nawaf Alhazmi's rental car was checked by police in New Jersey, but an FBI agent looking for him failed to find entries about him in databases and failed to search a private database for information about him.

There is more material about the "Saudi Connection." Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar allegedly told a US associate they wanted to crash a plane into a building, but Alhazmi correctly suspected that Omar al-Bayoumi, who was seen with Hani Hanjour and in whose apartment the hijackers allegedly stayed, was a Saudi spy. In addition, phone calls suggest a link between the hijackers, al-Bayoumi and an al-Qaeda linked imam, one of the hijackers contacts was deported from the US in 2003, and the Saudis don't want to extradite al-Bayoumi or anyone else.

Regarding the 9/11 Commission, the White House had a better relationship with Democrat Lee Hamilton than his Republican counterpart Tom Kean, who was shocked by the lack of information in Presidential Daily Briefings, whereas fellow commissioner Jamie Gorelick was shocked by the specificity of warnings they contained.

Miscellaneous entries include a visit by British intelligence officials to the US on September 12, 2001, tacit US support for the cancellation of elections in Algeria, and a visit by Taliban leaders to the US. In addition, an al-Qaeda explosives trainer visited Kosovo in 1998, a US solider from the Bosnian war emerged as an al-Qaeda leader in Somalia, and KSM allegedly stayed in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, in 1999. What's more, Richard Clarke thought the US's Achilles heel was in the US itself, bin Laden's main money-handler came to the attention of Canadian intelligence in 1997, and the US lost a Central Asian base in 2005. Finally, hundreds of millions of dollars passed through bin Laden charity fronts during the Soviet-Afghan War, and if you're wondering where the moderates are in Afghanistan, they're all dead - the US-backed mujaheddin killed them.
