Pressure Mounts to Move Terror Trial
Obama Administration Considers Moving Trial of Accused Sept. 11 Mastermind to Remote Location
By Bob Orr
(CBS) Pledging to bring justice to the victims of Sept. 11, Attorney General Eric Holder declared that accused mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would stand trial at the scene of the crime, "in a courthouse just blocks away from where the twin towers once stood."
But with mounting political pressure, the Obama Administration is now strongly considering moving the trial from Manhattan to a more remote location, reports CBS News correspondent Bob Orr.
"A Boeing 747 that serves as an Air Force One backup and two F-16 fighters escorting it caused a brief panic among office workers at the World Financial Center in lower Manhattan this morning, as large numbers evacuated the buildings. The incident was also spurred evacuations in Jersey City across the Hudson River from Manhattan."
Two F-16 fighters seems incorrect: the photos and the reports indicate only one. However, who ever thought this "photo op" was a good idea? I can't possibly imagine that the ensuing panic and bad press was unforeseeable. Is this just a cock-up? If it is, it's a real bad one.

Confronted with evidence that the Whitehouse version of the 9/11 attacks was a lie, my friend fell back in denial with a question that “Truthers” have heard many times: “I find it hard to believe If 9/11 required the cooperation of so many people, where are the witnesses, whistle-blowers and citizens of conscience who should be stepping forward to admit their part in the government’s murderous, False Flag operation?”
" Have you ever heard of the Manhattan Project?", I said.

Workers Finish Searching Deutsche Bank Building For 9/11 Remains
June 02, 2007
The city said Saturday that workers have finished scouring a service road and a building near the World Trade Center for human remains.
In all, about 1,400 human bone fragments were found at the former Deutsche Bank building and on a road used by construction vehicles to get in and out of the site.
Many of them were found after search efforts were renewed when utility workers found body parts in a manhole in October.
Deputy Mayor Ed Skyler says the city is now searching a sewer line beneath the site for September 11th remains. It also needs to comb through 1,000 cubic yards of debris from ramps that led to the tower and search the roofs of 130 Cedar Street and Fiterman Hall.
That work should be done by November.
