Please use this thread, thanks to Joe's suggestion, to keep track of news and events that are occurring during the Anniversary of 9/11. As always follow the rules and feel free to offer your thoughts, recollections and reflections as we face yet another end of a successful year fighting for the truth of 9/11. Peace and Thanks to Everyone involved.
Instead of submitting blog entries today, please use this thread to post info related to the events of the day. Instead of posting entire articles, just copy a couple of paragraphs and link it.
Post stuff not directly related to 9/11 in the other Open Thread here.
Instead of blog entries today, please post links to news and opinion not necessarily about 9/11 in the comments area here. Please use the other open thread for directly-related 9/11 info, here.
(Instead of posting the whole article, just post a couple of paragraphs and a link to the source.)
Feel free to post 9/11 news that 911blogger has missed, and links not necessarily hinging on 9/11.
9/11 - related and not so much. What's happening in your neck of the woods? News you want to share, etc...
We've been getting a fair number of submissions for off-topic blog entries regarding the election, North American Union, Ron Paul, etc. We'd like to keep the bulk of the posts on-topic, so here's an open thread for you to discuss these other subjects further ...
"Kennebunkport! Kennebunkport!" Ok, that's about all the Kennebunkport comments that will be allowed in this thread. Look for updates on the Warning in the "Four Signatories..." thread directly below this post, and confine your Kennebunkport opinions to that thread, please. That post will be updated periodically with the 2 cents of others.
Let's hear about your 9/11/07 activities. Will you be at the big rallies in NY or Washington, DC? Remember that if you go to NY, you have the excellent option of supporting the brave, heroic, First Responders via the We Are Change benefit.
If you are in Washington state, and can't go to a big rally, go to Seattle and join Rev. Rich Lang's Freedom From Fear Funeral March.
And of course there is a General Strike...
Rumor has it that Rosie went off about WTC7 today on The View, anyone got any details?
Big thumbs up to all the activists who took part in the actions on the 11th!
Open thread, have at it!
It's been a bit since the last open thread, and we have been getting a handful of non-9/11 related blog entries, so here is your chance to post about such things.
Anyone catch The View today? Anything interesting come out of the debates last night?
Have at it!
DATELINE Ireland... the very vocal 9/11 skeptic Morgan Stack is running in the Irish General Election next month. He has just completed a new campaign ad you can view here.
DATELINE Italy... the documentary ZERO INVESTIGATION ON 9/11 has the attention of 9/11 activists in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. You can view the website for the documentary here, and link to the Italian trailer here. The film is being considered for at least one major film festival in Italy.
DATELINE Europe... 9/11+Truth+Europe has gathered many European links on 9/11 activism under one roof. Also has links to videos and articles of interest.
DATELINE Norway... "9/11 Press for Truth" was broadcast on the Norwegian channel Tv2 on Saturday, April 14th. Also, Christopher Briggs of CQD 9/11 wants us all to know that there are two bloggers that have lately turned their focus to 9/11 issues: Unanswered Questions (Ubesvart Spørsmål) and War for Your Mind (Krigen om ditt sin). And finally, there is a new Norwegian start up page: sva911 (answers 9/11).
"Recently, a slew of celebrities have come forward in support of a new 9/11 investigation. Not to be left behind, the Easter Bunny has joined the ranks of the inside-jobbers. He's gone public in a big way, and he wants everyone to know he won't be swayed from this new position. Bill O'Reilly may swear that he'll be ruined, but E.B. thinks the risk is worth it. After all, he says, "What's at stake here is the fate of the free world." He urges everyone who sees these photos to visit www.911truth.org or, in Vermont, www.vt911.org and begin their journey down the "rabbit hole"."
Thanks to everyone who sent stuff in.
Been getting some non-9/11 related blog submissions, so here is an open thread.
What's the word?
Open thread, and a reminder that tomorrow people in Vermont will be voting yes or no on this ballot question;
"Shall Vermont's Congressional Delegation be advised to demand a new, thorough, and truly independent forensic investigation that fully addresses the many questions surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001?"
So what did we miss?
Several people posted this one in comments, but never made it to front page, about the only US mainstream coverage out there on the Psychic Network -- I mean, BBC, unless Wonkette is "mainstream". Thanks, Joe.
"Why aren't the big TV news programs and newspapers covering the BBC's remarkable gift for clairvoyance? If you want them to demand it of them.
Better yet, take matters of informing yourself into your own hands. As I hope this blog entry has demonstrated, we have the technology with the Internet to move from the old autocratic information paradigm into a democratic system. Instead of today's five media companies who own most of the news industry dictating self-serving knowledge to millions of Americans, information can be traded freely based on its inherent merits in a diverse and widespread self correcting network.
It has been really busy the last week or so, with a lot of good stuff flying off the front pages quicker than perhaps they should. Hopefully everyone is staying on top of the news as it is posted, and here is a chance to bring up anything that might have been glossed over.
Likewise, there have been a couple of new movies released on the web and on DVD recently which may have been glossed over as well, so here is a list of recent releases you might have missed:
- What really happened on 9/11? - William Rodriguez's story - DVD
- 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out - DVD
- 911 Dust & Deceit at the World Trade Center - DVD
- 9/11: The Birth of Treason - Google Video and DVD
- Empire of Oil: The Hidden History of 9/11 - Google Video
If there are other new films we've missed which are worth checking out be sure to mention them in the comments. Also, for anyone who missed the news a month or so back, both 9/11: Press for Truth and Terrorstorm are on Netflix, so encourage people you know to check these out and help boost their circulation. Also, I got one of the first copies of Dr. Griffin's speech in NYC from Oct. 2005 entirely focused on the demolition of the twin towers and on the oral histories released by the NYTimes. This DVD should be out soon as well, and we will be sure to give a heads up once it is. Finally, thanks to DBLS we now have both MP4 and WMV versions of the recent BBC hit-peice available here.
Also, I have noticed that a bunch of emails which have been sent in via the website have not actually reached us. So, if you have tried to email myself or any of our team members, submit news, etc. in the last few weeks there is a chance we never got it. I have updated each of our feedback pages linked to from the Contact Us page to include a note about this and a link to where you can get an email address to use directly. Please resend your emails via this route if you think we might have missed them.
Thanks to everyone who is helping us out! Open thread, have at it!
Been a few days since our last open thread, and there is a lot going on both inside and outside of the 9/11 community - here is an open thread to discuss such things.
Open thread, have at it!
It has been quite a busy few days in the 9/11 community. Here is a quick roundup and an open thread to help start off the new week.

- CW11 New York airs a feature story on 9/11 skeptics (link)
Of course there is even more than that which has happened in the last week, but it is quite apparent that this week has been a major week as for alternative 9/11 news coverage. Be sure to take a few minutes and send in feedback for each of these items!

Notice: Sorry for the site outage this morning, this occurred due to abuse being done on the web which referenced this website, and was not within our control.
We've been getting more and more non-9/11 related submissions lately. Seems like there is a desire for a site that is 9/11 skeptic friendly, but covers a lot more than just 9/11 related subjects..
So, here is an open thread. We will try to have these more frequently, in return please understand that we would like to keep the blog submissions 9/11 related - that is what people are coming here to find!
Open thread, have at it!
Note: There are only a couple days left in our fund raiser to help disabled first responders. We have just hit $2600 of our $5000 goal, please help out if you can by donating today!
Looks like another celebrity may come forward today, what else is going on?
Have at it!
Today marks the one year anniversary of Somebigguy becoming a 911blogger.com team member. Without SBG this site wouldn't have made it through its first year, and his help kept this site going when it otherwise would have fallen by the wayside. SBG headed up the project for 911podcasts.com and still maintains that site now pretty much single handedly. We have come a long way as a site since SBG came on board, and his help is still much appreciated!
Out of curiosity, how many visitors to the site today were around a year ago today?
If something else is on your mind feel free to post about it, open thread, have at it.
Sorry for the site outage, I wrote something to explain it here:
Roughly our viewership today was many times higher than just last month, which is in turn 25x higher than this time last year. I have been saying it is time for a server change, and we will be moving to a VPS host instead of a shared host as soon as we can. Unfortunately this will mean some downtime as well, and the current site may have more outages until the readership stabilizes. If you are interested in helping fund the new server setup please let me know. Check out the link above for more info about the outage, sorry for the down time. (On a side note, I must say I am glad that the site lasted as long as it did given the traffic.)

Post stuff as you come across it either in the comments here or in your blog, and sorry again. We will be having some downtime undoubtedly over the next week or so, but I will do whatever I can to keep it minimal.
A lot of events going on today all across the nation, including President Bush visiting all three sites. We hope to get some live reporting from Ground Zero today, and will do our best to stay on top of the news. If you see something be sure to contact us or post it here in the open thread.
I will keep this thread at the top of the page today to better help people keep track of what all is going on, check below this post for other posts from today.
Sorry for the site outages tonight, you can find a bit about them in my blog as well as a preview of the new layout for 911blogger.
In the mean time it is Friday, and time for an open thread, have at it.
Please be sure to note the new tips posted in the Help section as well as tonight's site notes in my blog. Also, for users having trouble staying on top of the latest posts and comments be sure to check out the recent posts link in the 'Site Sections' panel.
