In the ongoing quest to define reality about the events of 9/11/01, the MSM is pretending to ask the public what they "learned" about 9/11, or as in the case with NPR, using the official story mouthpieces to simply tell the public their version. In response, so far, one person on a list I'm on wrote this:
"Yesterday NPR did a program on 9/11. The program’s title was “What We’ve Learned Since 9/11.” Being the dope I am, I called in and to the screener, I said that what I’ve learned is that 1,000 foot buildings can’t come down in 10 seconds. His response was, “We’re not even going to go there.” I hung up. What’s new?"
I wonder how many times that screener had to say that.
Drawing Lessons From 9/11, Ten Years Later
Talk of the Nation, June 28, 2011
Michael Chertoff, former secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Jane Harman, former chair, U.S. House Intelligence Committee
Amb. John Negroponte, former Director of National Intelligence
Thomas Friedman, columnist, New York Times
JANE HARMAN: What have I learned? Here are a few things. I was in Congress on 9/11, headed toward the dome of the Capitol where the intelligence rooms were then housed. They've since moved underground to a bunker that's called the National Visitors Center. But at the time we had no evacuation plan.
...out of all proportion
As Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a self- outed 9/11 truther I think it's wise to unpeel some of the MSM deception about the man.
Podcast Show #29: The Boiling Frogs Presents Peter Phillips
Peter Phillips describes Project Censored, its mission, operational style and funding, then talks about what he has coined as ‘Truth Emergency,’ and provides examples such as the intentional misreporting of the number of civilian deaths in the Iraq war, and government insider media groups such as the Rendon Group. Mr. Phillips talks about the findings of his project’s studies and research of some of the more visible left-leaning alternative media with propaganda patterns similar to the mainstream outlets, especially on issues such as Israel, 9/11, and elections, and discusses the notions of objectivity, partisanship, and conspiracy when it comes to the media today, and more!
(Normally I would copy part of the essay and instruct readers to go to the original to read the whole thing, but in this case I'm copying the whole thing here in case the traitors at HuffPo remove it like they did Ventura.)
In a sad commentary on the currently disintegrating state of "main stream media", I found myself ambushed on Saturday, March 6th, just ten minutes after I arrived at a conference outside Philadelphia on "9-11, the Wars and Our Broken Constitution".
When young, smiling female producer Katie Hinman identified herself as being with ABC and asked for an interview, I had only just arrived at the conference. So although I was a little surprised that the Nightline TV crew was there, I immediately consented to an interview before anyone had a chance to warn me that the TV show was trying to concoct a connection between the conference and the mentally ill young man who had been killed a few days before while shooting at Pentagon guards.
The Media Response to the Growing Influence of the 9/11 Truth Movement. Part II: A Survey of Attitude Change in 2009-2010
In the past year, in response to emerging independent science on the 9/11 attacks, nine corporate, seven public, and two independent media outlets aired analytic programs investigating the official account.
Increasingly, the issue is treated as a scientific controversy worthy of debate, rather than as a "conspiracy theory" ignoring science and common sense.
This essay presents these media analyses in the form of 18 case studies.
Eight countries – Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Russia – have allowed their publicly-owned broadcasting stations to air the full spectrum of evidence challenging the truth of the official account of 9/11.
Here is an outstanding article posted by Sakerfa at Dprogram.net that was sent to me today. This is well worth a thorough reading by all grass roots activists no matter their issue.
Disinformation Tactics: The Methods Used To Keep You In The Dark
Posted by sakerfa on February 8, 2010
From the popular German political blog "Alles Schall und Rauch":
"one of the largest German TV-Guides "TV Sehen und Hören" published a four page story about 9/11 that's quite good. They ask the right questions and mention the facts that the MSM does not."

Clinton says 9/11 ringleaders are in Pakistan
Mon Jul 20, 1:22 pm ET
NEW DELHI – U.S. officials "firmly believe" that al-Qaida leaders who planned and carried out the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, are hiding in Pakistan near its border with Afghanistan, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday.
At a news conference concluding three days of meetings, Clinton said Washington has told the Pakistani government what it believes about the location of al-Qaida leaders on its soil.
"With respect to the location of those who were part of the planning and execution of the attack of 9/11 against our country, we firmly believe that a significant number of them are in the border area of Pakistan," she said when asked about the U.S. view.
"We are actively looking for additional information that would lead us to them," she added.
The Pakistani government denies that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and his senior lieutenants are hiding on its territory.
Bin Laden is believed to have fled into Pakistan from Afghanistan weeks after the U.S. military invaded Afghanistan in October 2001 in retaliation for the 9/11 attacks.
Unspun Newz explores the dangers posed by corporate controlled media deception and propaganda. This report focuses on major cases of media deception such as, the now famous, Monsanto rBGH growth hormone case where FOX News actually fought for and won the right to lie on the news. The report also details ABCs false reports about anthrax and how ABCs Brian Ross tried to link the anthrax attacks in 2001 to Iraq. The report further explores the corporate media blackout on the recently released scientific evidence proving that high tech explosives were used to demolish the world trade center on 9/11. Unspun highlights how media lies impact public health and how they were used to mislead the people into supporting war and how those deceptions have affected us and our troops.

The Current Battle against State Secrets Privilege: ‘Sanitization’ is not the answer By Sibel Edmonds
During the past few months I have been actively following the latest activity on the state secrets privilege (SSP). First, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this issue of extreme importance to our civil liberties and constitutional rights was finally getting long-over-due and deserved attention from the media. After all, the memories of fighting SSP in the federal courts all the way up to the Supreme Court, holding press conferences together with the ACLU to bring needed media attention to this draconian abuse, making the rounds in Congress to have them address this ‘privilege’ through legislation to restrict its misuse and abuse, are still fresh and vivid for me.
The IFC Channel (Independent Film Channel) has released a new documentary entitled New World Order. It debuted an April 16th and is being shown on IFC on Demand Channel. I don't receive IFC on Demand so I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but I look forward to anyone here who does to post a review. I've seen the trailer and it featured Alex Jones and the 911 Truth Movement although these are not the only "conspiracies" it is supposed to cover. Here is the description as found on IFC's website:
It seems that the 9/11 commission's recommendation of an all encompassing, multi-billion dollar homeland security bureau turns out to be just as useless as their final report. According to this CNN News Video, Agencies still aren't communicating and sharing information as well as they should be as law requires.
see the full report here:
Embedded video from CNN Video
Fear mongering seems to be the aim of this video news release stating we are still very much at risk and espousing the 9/11 Shura Council's predictions of the USA's downfall. The 9/11 Shura council is what the 5 Guantanamo detainees (which includes KSM) who have confessed to their roles in the 9/11 attacks are calling themselves. What those roles are I don't know, we're not given specifics. Read more about that in Joe's recent post below.
Just thought people should know that Reagan is spouting crap that he has seen detailed videos of the WTC destruction, and he asserts that, "he saw no evidence that anything took those towers down other than the planes that flew into them." (not verbatim, but close)
Air America is a bizarre amalgamation of biases, it seems. No wonder Clear Channel carries them out here in Portland, OR.
YouTube links for Friday evening's historic telecast on Russia state TV Channel One have been posted, and the discussion following the telecast of "ZERO: Investigation into 9/11" begins halfway through Part 11 - anybody working on an English translation of this?
The full broadcast (including the film) can be found in 15 parts here:
Here are the discussion segments in need of English translation:

Crimes of the State
The Washington Post, today,1 has done a pretty good job of encapsulating the fraudulent "war on terrorism" without actually calling it a fraud. One would have to be in-the-know to understand the implications, but they are there if one is willing to study the article.
"There has been no confirmed trace of bin Laden since he narrowly escaped from the CIA and the U.S. military after the battle near Tora Bora, Afghanistan, in December 2001, according to U.S., Pakistani and European officials."
That's a pretty strong statement. No "trace?"
(Edit - from 7.28.2008 - missed this one.)
Not much needs to be said except Keep it Up Jesse!
As a high-profile 9/11 truther you may arguably be able to actually have MORE of an effect with this cause than you would have in the restrained PC, taboo-forbidden, controlled nature of the halls of our U.S. Senate. Don't let your wife's disgust with politics keep you from perpetually speaking the truth!
Excellent job spreading the Herman Goering quote!
Even CBS Evening News covered McCain's advider's comment to Fortune that a new terrorist attack on U.S. soil would benefit McCain. Bookmark this video, it's going to come in very handy in a few months...
Crimes of the State Blog
It's not civil disobedience, but corporate disobedience -- upsetting the corporate control paradigm -- that just plain flips out the media oligarchs and their loyal proxies.
"It's not a debate. It's a debate between us. You're in the audience. Audience comes from the Latin, 'to listen'."
--Bill Maher, (confronted by WeAreChange LA regarding his 9/11 censorship
The most powerful weapon the corporate state has is editorial control. The information clampdown is total, on certain topics. No "debate" is allowed, and opposition voices are not permitted to appear despite the validity of their case, or the amount and quality of evidence they can provide. Opposition is routinely written out of history, and it is demonized when it refuses to remain silent.
Economic Growth - A Gross Deception
A question I have: Would it be more efficient/necessary to create a seperate blog for these 2 videos?
Our local weekly newspaper, Chico News & Review, has a front page story about 9/11 Truth (and Justice!).
It's a pretty good article. I don't like the article title, "Truth Believers", but I suppose it's okay.
They tried to make it "balanced" by including a CSUC professor's comments (the same prof who did the "pancake theory" presentation at our 9/11 Truth-ish conference last week).
But it is more 9/11 Truth and Justice than anything. Mostly it profiles our group, Chico 9/11 Truth, and some of its "core group" members, showing that "normal, intelligent, professional people" can be pro-9/11 Truth.
Chock up another mainstream media win for our side.
Slowly but surely, step by step.....
Here's the online version:
Mark Davis: The right to free speech taken too far - dallasnews.com
Mark Cuban is wrong to distribute 9/11 conspiracy film 'Loose Change'
06:53 AM CDT on Wednesday, March 28, 2007
A couple of months from now, I believe, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will bathe in the well-deserved glow of adulation that comes with winning an NBA championship.
I'm sure many Truthers are planning to make an appearance at the rallies and marches against the Iraq War this weekend. I'll be at Portland's protest tomorrow with a sign that says "End the 9/11 Lies, End the 9/11 Wars." I'm interested in accounts by Truthers of their experiences at these events, where 9/11 Truth is received with varying levels of enthusiasm, so to speak.
Just now, on C-SPAN's coverage of the event in DC, I saw two 9/11 Truth signs -- one right up front in the crowd, and one visible over Cynthia McKinney's shoulder as she was speaking. Good work, folks in DC!
As far as I know, this is the first MSM news source to question the confession. Let's see if any other MSM commentators pick up on this. Of course, KSM may be dead. And he might have been a patsy and an asset. Or he might never have confessed, since we have only the Pentagon's word for it, and KSM's statements supposedly came through a military spokesman. But Lauer's questions about torture will hopefully be the first crack in this Pentagon psyops campaign.
Update: Reprehensor points out that KSM says he made false statements due to torture, and that his witness requests were not granted. And Prisonplanet has an absolutely hilarious take on the KSM confession story.
On Thursday, NBC's Today show explored whether the confessions of alleged 9/11 'mastermind' Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can be trusted since he claimed to have been tortured after being detained.
"Let's talk about the issue of torture," NBC's Matt Lauer said. "He says in his statement that he didn't make this statement under duress or pressure, but he does also say that he was tortured by the CIA after his capture."
Last September, CIA sources told ABC News that the harshest technique they were authorized to use on "high-value detainees, such as the 9/11 attacks architect Khalid Sheikh Mohamed...was called 'water boarding,' in which a prisoner's face was covered with cellophane, and water is poured over it (pictured above) -- meant to trigger an unbearable gag reflex."
Last week, Portland 9/11 Truth hosted an evening with Mary Starrett and representatives of Evangelicals Against the War. At the last minute, we were told we couldn't use the leftist bookstore where we usually hold our meetings and presentations, because members of the store's collective felt that Starrett and the evangelical folk (who are very savvy and very outspoken about 9/11 Truth) would be "violating their safe space." A reporter from one of the two local alternative weeklies thought this was an interesting angle (because clearly the truth about the events of 9/11 doesn't rate on its own /snark) and covered the event in both her online column and an editorial in today's print edition.
A video of Starrett's presentation was posted as a blog last week. I encourage people to watch it not just for Starrett, who was the Constitution Party's candidate for governor of Oregon last year, but for the speaker from Evangelicals Against the War, whose comments preceed her talk. I'll be the first to insist that we disagree on many important issues. At this juncture in history, however, I want to make some kind of alliance with anyone who recognizes that the lies about 9/11 are at the root of a genocidal war abroad, and an Orwellian subversion of our civil liberties at home, and these people do.
And feel free to offer a little truth to Portlanders in the comments here: Willy Week.
Barrie Zwicker talking 9/11 Truth on CKNW 98, Vancouver's 50,000 Watt Blow torch
This is from the Bill Good Show, heard daily from 9am til Noon on CKNW 98 www.CKNW.com
Mr. Good hosts the biggest talk show in Vancouver, one of the biggest in Canada.
Barrie talks about his new book "The Media Cover-up of 9/11" tells how 9/11 was a 'False Flag Operation'.
Calls were welcomed and most agreed with Barry and were allowed to add more info regarding 9/11 anomalies. The only two naysayers said he could not beleive it as he felt that "the Bush and neocons were simply too stupid to carry such an operation out." And other said he Barry was "out to make money" and told him he "should leave the country!"
Kudos to Bill Good for this show, for being openminded and 'fair and balanced'! I hope he will entertain other guests on this topic.
