Jersey Girls

"Jersey Girl" Patty Casazza and 9/11 Family Member Bob McIlvaine: 9/11 Symposium, West Hartford Ct, 11/03/07

(This is a 'rough cut' clip....We are currently working on the post production of the entire event which will be available on DVD and on the Web in the coming weeks.)

Patty Casazza and Bob McIlvaine : "9/11: Family Members, First Responders and Experts Speak Out!"

The BBC2's 9.11 "Conspiracy-Files": Just a cynical MSM debunking exercise?

Last Sept/Oct I spoke on the phone, several times, to the senior BBC radio producer:

A... Armstrong (for their anonymity)
Senior Producer, BBC World Current Affairs
Room 1252, BBC White City, 201 Wood Lane, London W12 7TS
Tel: 020 8752 6902

They knew about their colleague Guy Smith’s forthcoming 9.11 'Conspiracy Files' programme and asked me if I could forward or contribute information that would help in the production.
I smelt a bit of a rat at the time, unfortunately, since I was currently embroiled in a discussion with the above office as to why an otherwise undeniable piece of solid first-hand testimony including allusions to an explosion near the roof of the South-tower, had been retrospectively edited from a BBC radio 9.11 5th anniversary transmission.
I was working from the testimony of Beverly Eckert, a 911 widow, once member of ' Voices of September 11', whose husband Sean Rooney had worked on floor 92 of that building as vice-president of Aon Risk Management Services.

PBS Interviews Patty Casazza on Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations

Patty Casazza on Implementing 9/11 Commission Recommendations -

This Week, Maria Hinojosa talks with "Jersey Girl" Patty Casazza about her reaction to Democrats' attempts to implement 9/11 Commission national security recommendations. The "Jersey Girls" are a group of women whose husbands died in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Casazza is also a member of the steering committee keeping an eye on the 9/11 Commission's work. Casazza's husband John F. Casazza, a Cantor Fitzgerald employee, died at age 38. She has a teenage son.

I don't know how long this show will remain on this show's main page, so if it moves just check in the archives under January 12th.

Thanks Ed for the heads up.

Santa, Christmas, Iraq and other lies

A long article in Ashland Daily Tidings.

Where has America been? More importantly, where has Christian America been? The U.S. began its aggression in the Middle East in 1953. Surely, the church is aware of the history of U.S. aggression against Muslim nations over the past 53 years?

"The people's voice will speak the truth and the government will hear," Forbes announced.

But the church never questioned the government to this degree when Bush sent a half-million troops to Saudi Arabia in 1990. Nor did the church stand against Carter and Reagan's support of Saddam Hussein from 1980 — 88. The church was also silent during the U.S. control of Iran for 26 years. And when September 11, 2001 became the foundation upon which America would launch a variety of illicit and illegal attacks and covert operations around the globe without respect to law, morality or human rights, the church sat in its pew and applauded.

Even to this very day, the church has yet to call for an independent investigation into the numerous anomalous events pertaining to the attacks of 9/11 and follow-up on the courageous push by the 4 widows from New Jersey, whose efforts made possible the 9/11 Commission, which even they have declared was a fraud. It was the Jersey Girls that pushed for truth.

Not the church.

Not congress.

Not judges.

Not governors.

Not state leaders.

Not even the national media.

Rush Limbaugh Says "Jersey Girls" Following Democrat "Script"

Rush Limbaugh Compares Michael J. Fox to "Jersey Girls" -

On the October 24 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh claimed that actor Michael J. Fox -- who has Parkinson's disease and appeared in a recent campaign ad for Missouri Democratic Senate candidate Claire McCaskill -- is part of "a script that they [Democrats] have written for years" in which "Senate Democrats used to parade victims of various diseases or social concerns or poverty up before congressional committees and let them testify and they were infallible." Limbaugh also compared Fox to "the Jersey Girls ... in the period of time when the 9-11 Commission was meeting publicly. Victims -- infallible, whatever they say cannot be challenged."

Limbaugh's remarks recall right-wing pundit Ann Coulter's accusation, in her book Godless: The Church of Liberalism (Crown Forum, June 2006), that the Jersey Girls -- a group of widows of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks -- were "using their grief" and "the fact that you lost a husband" to make "a political point while preventing anyone from responding," as Media Matters for America documented.


If you've been a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement for a long time, you're well aware how difficult this fight has been.

Some have faced ridicule the likes of which have never been seen before.

Some have been set up by the media to be made fools of, and worse.

Some have been kicked out of office in Washington D.C.

Some have lost friends that didn't want to listen.

Some have lost their jobs for speaking their mind.

Some have been harassed by this Government in one form or another.

The point is, this is probably the hardest thing this country has ever faced, and I am forever grateful to those that had the courage to face the truth.

Public's Right To Know - Declassification and Release of Documents

To: U. S. Congress; Press/Media

We, the undersigned, demand the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. It has been alleged that this urgent and out-of-the-ordinary meeting was called to discuss the increasingly dire warnings of an imminent al Qaeda attack within the U.S.

Given that much of the July 10, 2001 meeting has already been made public in Bob Woodward's newly released book, "State of Denial", it is unacceptable to continue to keep these documents and transcripts hidden from the American public's view.

In addition, we again call for the declassification and release of both the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI) and the CIA Inspector General's report, "CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks".

The disastrous nature of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks warrant the release of all of this information so that the American public may learn what its government did or did not do to protect them. Had this nation been properly warned of the looming and imminent terrorist threat, life saving choices could have been made that day.


9/11 Widows Lash Out Over Tenet, Rice Meeting

The Jersey Girls are lambasting the administration and the 9/11 Commission for failing to prevent 9/11 and then covering up what really happened.

Raw Story has the 9/11 Widow's statement:

"Statement Regarding al Qaeda Threats
October 5, 2006

Astonishingly, five years post 9/11 the public is made aware about an urgent July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then, National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. This information comes from Bob Woodward's newly released book, "State of Denial".

Despite this Administration's rhetoric that they had "no warnings" leading up to 9/11, it has become abundantly clear, that key Administration officials were made aware of the vast array of Al Qaeda threats and warnings that existed in years prior, and more importantly, in the weeks leading up to September 11, 2001.

When we add the July 10, 2001 meeting to the plethora of other clear warnings that our government had, a very concise view of the al Qaeda threat emerges. Those other warnings include, but are not limited to:

C&L’s interview with Kristen Breitweiser: Wake Up Call

Kristen-Breitweiser.jpg I interviewed Kristen last week and talked about her new book" Wake Up Call", Coulter and what she had to do to get the 9/11 commision off the ground. I hope you enjoy. She’s been through more than most and still keeps on fighting…


Full transcript;

Review: 9/11 Press For Truth

Quote: "9/11 Press for Truth leads us to some pretty grim ideas about what is really going on in the so-called "War on Terror." We listen to key administration officials ignoring fair questions with evasions, condescending non-answers and repeated fairy-tales about Terrorism and The Enemies of Freedom, and we don't know what to think. Are we being protected from a Truth we cannot handle? Or has a power elite simply hijacked the nation?"

Jersey Girl Kristen Breitweiser Writes A Letter To Ann Coulter

A Letter to Ann Coulter - Huffington Post

Dear Ann,

But for the murder of our husbands on 9/11, we would not have gone to Washington to fight for an independent 9/11 investigation. Our involvement in national security would have begun and ended at the voting booth, like most citizens. But for the initial failure of our leaders and elected officials to create an independent 9/11 Commission to investigate the terrorist attacks, we would not have not been forced to publicly fight for it.
You complained to many interviewers that they hadn't taken the time to read your book. But did you take the time to look at the Family Steering Committee Web site ( You might discover that we shared some of the same disappointments, concerns, and grievances that you have expressed with regard to the 9/11 Commission. The difference is that we made those concerns known while the Commission was doing its work--that is, when it could have made a difference. Why didn't you?
