When we launched 9/11 Truth News, we knew we would be attacked.
And no one on the team was surprised when the first attacks came from people claiming to be on the side of 9/11 truth.
On Monday August 30, 2010, it came to my attention that I was the target of three hit pieces that had been published in rapid succession. The most prominent of these attacks came from Kevin Barrett, a self-declared 9/11 truth leader with a long history of actions and statements considered by many to be extremely discrediting to the 9/11 truth movement. Under an ugly, libelous headline on his "Truth Jihad" blog, Barrett issued a venomous litany of bizarre accusations against me: I'm probably an agent of the state, perhaps stalking his family, I'm a "wrecker" getting him kicked off conference lineups and - to top it off - there's evidence that I may actually be living a secret double life as a supporter of the official 9/11 story.
Barrett has been accusing associates of mine of being agents for years now, so these kinds of weird lies are nothing new. This time though, his headlined defamation was something altogether more sickening. The filth oozing forth from Kevin Barrett does not deserve to be dignified with any kind of response whatsoever. But the fact that these smears represent an attack on a dedicated activist with a very strong record - by a supposed "9/11 truth leader" with a large audience (multiple appearances on FOX News, a radio show, books for sale) - at a very critical time in this movement - demands that the issue be addressed.

BBC's Third Tower: 30 Pieces of Good News
by Dr. Kevin Barrett and Rolf Lindgren
The one-hour BBC program The Third Tower should have a positive effect on spreading the truth about what happened to WTC 7. Despite its attempt to debunk by twisting and omitting facts, there is much to cheer about.
Here are 30 examples from the program:
1) There is a WTC 7, many have never heard of it.
2) No plane hit WTC 7.
3) WTC 7 fell down.
4) Several videos of WTC 7 falling down are shown.
5) The collapse is compared visually to a controlled demolition.
6) Barry Jennings tells of hearing multiple explosions in WTC 7.
7) Barry Jennings was told while in WTC 7 "Get out of there, get out of there now", which sounds very suspicious.
8) Barry Jennings' time-line is not contradicted by anything Barry Jennings says.
9) After seven years, no final report on the collapse of WTC 7 has appeared. The 9/11 Commission never mentioned the collapse of WTC 7.
10) The program will generate sales and Internet hits of 'Loose Change'.

'9/11 Truther' : I may break voting record
Monday, June 9, 2008, 8:52 AM
By Brian Moon
As a UW faculty member Kevin Barrett took aim at the US government saying it was behind the 9/11 attacks. Now he's taking aim at the 3rd Congressional District Seat running as a Libertarian Party candidate. He says he brings the ability to bring more votes than LP candidates traditionally do, rather than the usual 2 percent vote he believes he can pull 11 percent of votes against a Democrat or Republican.
Part of Barrett's strategy involves educating people on his opposition to the Iraq War and incumbent Democrat Ron Kind's support of it.
"Once people hear that Ron Kind voted repeatedly for the Iraq War every one I talked to says 'I'm voting for you"
Businessman Ben Olson III has also filed for the LP candidacy. Barrett says Olson come from the old libertarian thought that often wants to "shut down every aspect of the government overnight." Barrett calls himself a new libertarian.
"The government actually needs to be strengthened in a certain way so it can go after the worst abuses of private power."
Kevin Barrett to Announce Run for Congress on Monday
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Saturday, May 9th, 2008
Contact: Dr. Kevin J. Barrett, email@example.com
(608) 583-2132 website: http://barrettforcongress.us
Lone Rock, WI - Two years ago, the politicians wanted Kevin Barrett fired from his teaching job. Now Barrett is turning the tables. Barrett is calling on the voters to fire the politicians, starting with his own 3rd District Representative, Ron Kind.
"The Democrats were elected in 2006 to end the war," Barrett explains. "They failed. Ron Kind and the rest of them keep voting to throw our money into that five trillion dollar black hole in Iraq. That's why our economy is tanking and gas prices are through the roof. It's time to give the Democrats and the Republicans their walking papers. It's time to fire them all." Barrett will be running as a Libertarian and urging voters to throw all Republicans and Democrats out of office. He will be handing out copies of the new DVD Washington, You're Fired while he campaigns.

Jesse Ventura talks with Kevin Barrett on Truth Jihad Radio
(18 Minutes - 3 Meg)
Monday March 24, 2008
Kevin Barrett speaks with Richard Falk, Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University, about 9/11 Truth, the Nation Magazine (left of center media in general) and the possibility of another false flag attack on America.
(I just listened to this again and Dr Falk doesn't specifically talk about "the next" false flag attack. He and Kevin talk about the 9/11 attack and Bush not leaving power at the end of his term which could only happen because of some national emergency.)

After following the developing rift between Kevin Barret and Ann Althouse, I decided it was time to send her an email. If you feel so inclined you should send her one as well. Here it is:
Please tune in to my new five-minute news headline show on No Lies Radio, a Pacifica Radio Network affiliate. "No Lies News" will be on seven days a week, eight times a day, and will be updated daily (well, five to seven times a week) to offer a 9/11 truth perspective on the latest headlines, spiced with the kind of offbeat humor that makes it all bearable.
Pacifica is the leading American left/alternative network, and No Lies Radio features Democracy Now, Free Speech Radio News, and 9/11 truth teach-in and music programming. No Lies News will be available for syndication to Pacifica stations around the country---please contact yours and urge them to carry it!
No Lies News runs every day, Monday thru Sunday (all times given are Pacific Time):

This is a different kind of show and audience from my talk shows on RBN, GCN, and WTPRN: http://www.mujca.com/airwaves.htm
University of Wisconsin law professor Ann Althouse has upped the ante. Now she says 9/11 truth is not just "truly nutty," it's "despicable," and 9/11 truth-seekers are like "Nazis or Klansmen."
If it's that nutty and despicable, it ought to be easy for a law professor to shoot down in a debate. But once again, Ann has taken the cowardly route of hurling vicious insults while refusing a polite offer for a debate based on logic and evidence. Below is my recent correspondence with her.
On Feb 2, 2008, at 2:44 PM, Kevin Barrett wrote:
Dear Ann Althouse,
I am writing to request that you back up your characterization of 9/11 skepticism as "nutty," and your many public attacks on me, by stepping forward to defend the official story, using logic and evidence, in a free and fair debate.
As you may know, last year the UW-Madison History Club attempted to sponsor a debate or panel discussion pitting critics of the government's version of 9/11 against its defenders. After thoroughly canvassing the UW faculty, especially the History and Political Science departments, they were unable to find any defenders.
Congratulations to Richard, Lon, James and Jeannon, and a huge thanks to everybody who wrote to Althouse, the UW, and/or the local newspapers. This must be by far the biggest flood of 9/11 truth every published in the letters section of any mainstream US newspaper!
Ann Althouse, a law professor who seems to have a very high opinion of herself, needs to find the courage to defend her assertion that 9/11 skeptics are "nutty." If our arguments are that weak, it should be a piece of cake for an experienced law professor to take them apart...right?
Scroll down for a list of places to write and call to keep the pressure on her, and on the UW. We DEMAND a 9/11 debate in 2008!
PS I'll discuss this during the second hour of today's radio show (first hour guest Jarek Kupsc, writer-director of The Reflecting Pool). 4-6 pm CT http://www.gcnlive.com Network 4 Call-in number 866-582-9933 Complete schedule & guest list: http://www.mujca.com/airwaves.htm

A cowardly display
by Bill Willers, Bill Willers Professor emeritus, biology, UW-Oshkosh
Friday, January 25, 2008
On Jan. 21, University of Wisconsin law professor Ann Althouse wrote on her blog, “I don’t know why the University of Wisconsin has not rehired 9/11 conspiracy believer Kevin Barrett to teach a course on the history of Islam. But if we know a person believes something truly nutty, are we not entitled to use that as evidence of his intelligence, judgment, and trustworthiness?”
This is an amazing statement coming from a professor of law — a position that presupposes a respect for carefully considered evidence. Her assault on Mr. Barrett, in which she makes no effort to consider the countless facts backing the so-called Truth Movement, is shamefully flippant...
...there is little doubt that in a courtroom, in which she would face that army of experts and their facts, she would be reduced to dust on the floor.
This is the second time in the past six months that the University of Wisconsin-Madison has passed me over in favor of less qualified candidates. From now on I'm on the (legal) warpath. Those who wish to help with my future legal expenses may contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year, despite being the ONLY qualified candidate, I was turned down for a tenure-track job at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater purely on the basis of my political beliefs. They chose to shut down their Arabic program rather than hire me! Howard Ross, who was then the Dean of Letters and Sciences, was involved in the (non-)hiring process, and will testify that I was turned down, and the classes I would have taught cancelled, because of my involvement in the 9/11 truth movement. Howard Ross will join me to discuss my case, and the sad state of academic freedom in America, on Truth Jihad Radio, Saturday, 1/19, 6-8 pm, http://www.republicbroadcasting.org Full radio schedule and guest list: http://www.mujca.com/airwaves.htm

Architects, Engineers & Educators Speak Out! Conference to be held- Saturday December 15 at Faneuil Hall, Boston
This day-long conference on Saturday December 15 at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall is entitled, “The Destruction of World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7: A Case for Controlled Demolition.” In this scientific look at the collapses, a panel of four well-known and credentialed science and engineering professionals will present the case that the government’s theories could not possibly be true and that most of the evidence points to the one theory that’s been completely avoided by the government and the media – controlled demolition.
New in the Journal of 9/11 Studies: "Islam and the 9/11 Wars: Steven Jones Interviews Kevin Barrett"
I will be interested in how people react to this article. I wanted to learn more about the many framed-victims (it must be said) of the "9/11 Official Story," and so I asked a Muslim. Thanks to Dr. Kevin Barrett, the article has significant informative content and hope you will read it here: http://journalof911studies.com/volume/2007/BarrettAnswersJonesReIslam.pdf
The Appendix contains Kevin's account of his run-in with airport security operatives -- and his great sense of humor shines through...
"How many Iraqis have fled their country due to the 9/11 wars?
According to the BBC, more than two million Iraqis have fled their country due to the US invasion and occupation."
"Approximately what proportion of Muslims question the US-official 9/11 story?
Sad, isn't it? - Jon
Bill Lueders: Journalists under no obligation to please Barrett, '9/11 truth-seekers'
A letter to the editor — 8/22/2007 11:58 am
Dear Editor: Even before I read Kevin Barrett's gratuitous swipe at Isthmus in his Aug. 11 letter, I was inclined to defend The Capital Times against the attacks being leveled by the so-called 9/11 truth-seekers.
Focusing on an interesting and revealing moment -- an expression of pure paranoia by a presenter at a recent conference -- is not, as Barrett and others claim, an abdication of journalistic responsibility. It's what a good reporter should do.
As these critics noted, anyone with access to the Internet can obtain uncritical and comprehensive coverage of this conference, and the far-fetched theories that underlie it. The reporter was quite right to call attention to a moment that cut through the facade.

How YOU Can Stop the Next 9/11
–by stockpiling “INSIDE JOB?" signs !

Can plastic roll banners stop the next 9/11? Can plastic roll banners stop the next 9/11?
Dennis Milligan, Chair of the Arkansas Republican Party, says “I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [9/11]" to make the American people appreciate President Bush. (1)
Ex-Republican Senator Rick Santorum tells us a series of "unfortunate events," meaning terrorist attacks, will occur within the next year and radically alter American citizens’ view of the war. (2)
Lt.-Col. Doug Delaney, chair of the war studies program at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario insists that the West needs more terrorist attacks on the scale of 9/11 and 7/7 to save a failing foreign policy. (3)
Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff says he has a “gut feeling” that a new 9/11 is on the way. (4)
Reza Aslan is the author of the best post-9/11 introduction to Islam for general audiences, No God But God. Reza's book was one of the main textbooks in my notorious Intro to Islam course at the University of Wisconsin - Madison last year, even though it uncritically accepts the official 9/11 myth. (As I kept explaining to the provost, I tried to prevent many points of view! Besides, it's a darned good book.)
Has Reza thought more deeply about 9/11 and the war of terror since writing No God But God? Has he, like our fellow Muslim Keith Ellison, noticed the 9/11 - Reichstag fire parallels? Reza is of Iranian descent -- is he concerned about Cheney's plan to nuke America, then use that as an excuse to nuke Iran? Tune in today, 7/9/07 Dynamic Duo, 3-4 pm CT, GCN network 2 to find out. Call-in number (877) 996-4327 x149
Did the FBI really say that Osama Bin Laden is "not wanted" for 9/11 because there is "no hard evidence" against him? And what about the infamous Fatty Bin Laden confession video that OBL expert Bruce Lawrence of Duke University says is "bogus" ? Can we now prove the government is lying about its provenance? Kevin Barrett will seek answers to these and other questions in an interview with muckraking journalists Ed Haas and Meher Osseiran today, Friday 6/29, 3-5 p.m. on Dynamic Duo, http://gcnlive.com network 2.
Kevin Barrett: Liberal news media continue to block debate about 9/11 truth
A letter to the editor
June 27, 2007
Dear Editor: Last year The Capital Times distinguished itself as the first mainstream U.S. daily to publish not one but two hard-hitting 9/11 truth op-ed columns -- both by yours truly.
In one, I asked why the media weren't covering the dozens of former high-level military, intelligence and administration officials who are charging or implying that 9/11 was an inside job. (See http://patriotsquestion911.com.)
Then, instead of covering these generals, colonels, CIA officers, Bush administration officials and other notables, the media decided to cover a part-time university lecturer -- me. I would have thought it more significant that Col. Robert Bowman, a Cal Tech Ph.D., much-decorated fighter pilot and former chief of the Star Wars missile defense program under two presidents, is running for high office on a 9/11 truth platform than that a part-time university lecturer, however charming and articulate, is doing 9/11 activism in his spare time.
I just got this from Alfred Webre, co-author of the 9/11 Independent Prosecutors Act, who will be on Dynamic Duo with me tomorrow (Monday 6/18) 3-5 pm CT, http://gcnlive.com He will be presenting the 9/11 IPA and the proposal for prosecuting it at the Vancouver Conference next weekend: http://v911truth.org

JULY 4, 2007
Barrett is back to talk about his Moroccan adventure and various 9/11 issues on "9/11 and Empire", 9-11 Central on WTPRN.
His guest will be Susan Clarke.
Kevin Barrett sent an email attaching the following Moroccon newspaper story, and saying:
"Note that this article uses the present tense--Waleed LIVES in Morocco. I have made contact with journalists here who are working on the Waleed story, so whether or not I find him during my one remaining week here, the wheels are turning."
Kevin translated the following story from the original French language version in the Maroc-Hebdo International newspaper:
An American Academic in Morocco Searching for One of the Alleged 9/11 Kamikazis
Maroc-Hebdo n.743, May 4th-10th 2007
For many Americans, 9/11 is far from being a closed case. More and more voices are raising questions about (who were) the true authors of the attacks. Among them is Kevin Barrett, coordinator of the interfaith movement for the truth about 9/11, the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth (mujca.com). M. Barrett will be in Morocco from May 6th onward. The purpose of his trip is an attempt to find the Saudi Arabian Waleed al-Shehri, who has been presented, along with his brother Wail, as one of five hijackers who took over Flight 11 out of Boston. One problem: shortly afterward the Saudi newspaper as-Sharq al-Awsat reported that the same Waleed al-Shehri was contacting the American and Saudi embassies proclaiming his innocence. At the time, the American authorities said it was a case of mistaken identity. That hypothesis doesn't stand up, since alongside the photo and birthdate, which are indeed those of the Waleed al-Shehri who lives in Morocco, there is also the birthdate and photo of his brother. In short, it is a muddle that casts a monstrous shadow over the events of 9/11, a shadow that Kevin Barrett will try to cast light upon. Will the truth emerge from Morocco?
Kevin Barrett has got back in the news again, and the Wisconsin TV station has put up a poll question on their website today,
"Do you think Kevin Barrett should have a teaching position next fall at UW-Madison?"
Just now there were only 314 votes, with 61% saying No Way and only 33% saying Yes, definitely.
We have a chance to turn that around.
Kevin of course is the professor and 9/11 Truth Activist who has come under heavy fire from neocons in Wisconsin who are pressing hard to have him fired for his views on 9/11.
Kevin's website is www.mujca.com, the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance. He converted to Islam after marrying a Moroccan woman, and has recently taught a course on Islam at U. of Wisconsin.
There is also a great story at the above link about his upcoming trip to Morocco to "arrest a hijacker" and his challenge to debate a neocon totalitarian enemy of free speech in the Wisconsin legislature.

Can you help financially with Stack's political campaign?
If he had $4,000 to buy paper, he could force the Irish government election authorities to send out a mailing of 60,000 pieces and pay the postage, the equivalent of about $25,000 of stamps. But he needs the funds.
Stack features 9/11 Truth front and center in his campaign. This could be a decisive mailing. If you can help, send a donation at his website via PayPal;
Irish 9/11 truth candidate Morgan Stack will be Kevin Barrett's guest on Dynamic Duo, gcnlive.com stream 2, 3-5 pm today. They will discuss the global 9/11 truth movement, comparing public opinion in Ireland/Europe, the US, and Morocco and other Arab and Islamic countries. (Barrett is leaving Sunday for Morocco and will be interviewing Moroccans about 9/11 and false-flag terror--while investigating Waleed al-Shehri, the alleged 9/11 suicide hijacker who may still be living and working in Casablanca.)
Email from Kevin Barrett.
Today's press conference at Rep. Steve Nass's office (http://911blogger.com/node/8304) went very well.
Local newspaper reporters and photographers and TV crews showed up, as did an AP reporter. Keep an eye on WKOW channel 27 news, Madison this evening, and set your video recorders. Stories should be forthcoming in the local Madison papers (http://www.madison.com) and the U.W. Badger Herald (http://badgerherald.com/) as well as the AP.
