Some of the columnists at LewRockwell.com (LRC) are starting to get a little bolder (I strongly suspect that several of them are 9/11 Truthers of long standing, but are seemingly discouraged by "the management" -- or by their own fears -- from being too open on the topic; yet they occasionally drop strong hints). Thanks to the Ron Paul presidential campaign of 2007-2008, LRC has become one of the ten most popular popular political sites on the internet, much to the consternation of the power elite (for example, the site is blocked to all or most overseas servicemen by the military). William Norman Grigg is one of the site's most popular and prolific writers. I believe he is very well respected by the site's readership, so his comments (as follows) may encourage at least a few close-minded LRC readers to study 9/11 Truth in a little greater detail:
The Old 'False-Flag Trick'
by William Norman Grigg
[December 31, 2009]
Jacob Hornberger is the founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation. In a new editorial at LewRockwell.com (Operation Northwoods and the 9/11 Truthers), he admits that he believes Operation Northwoods is a valid historical fact; and he challenges neocon Charles Krauthammer as follows:
"How about it, Krauthammer? How about explaining your shock and outrage about the 9/11 Truthers to the Washington Post's readers in the context of a discussion about Operation Northwoods? I’m sure lots of people (including me) – would love to read your explanation."
Yes, that is an encouraging challenge; however, regrettably, Hornberger pulls his own version of a Krauthammer in the same editorial. It reads as follows:
"One possible reason for Krauthammer’s reaction [to 9/11 Truthers' claims] is that he simply isn’t convinced by the evidence that the Truthers have produced to make their case. Personally, this is the category I fall into. ... The 9/11 attacks were "blowback" from U.S. foreign policy. The 9/11 Truthers have not convinced me otherwise."
The Sacramento News and Review has published a somewhat positive review of the new book by Kathryn S. Olmsted, Real Enemies: Conspiracy Theories and American Democracy, World War I to 9/11.
Project North Woods / Northwoods is mentioned as is the prior warning about Pearl Harbor.
USA needs nuclear explosion to turn the world into dictatorship
23.12.2008 Source: Pravda.Ru
Is the United States going to put dictatorship into effect under the guise of the anti-terrorist struggle? What may trigger another major transformation in 2009? The answer is obvious: another 9/11 in the USA.
Terrible and bloody events are in store for the world in the beginning of 2009. Most likely, the world will witness a reality show with a nuclear blast, which will be used as a reason for the US administration to change the world order again and leave the new Great Depression behind. There is every reason to believe that the Russian Federation may suffer as a result of this possible initiative too.
Joe Biden made a sensational statement on October 19, 2008. He said that Barack Obama would have to undergo an ordeal during the first six months of his stay in the White House. It will be the time of a very serious international crisis, when Obama would have to make tough and possibly unpopular decisions both in home and foreign politics.

Question - what did the 9/11 Commission learn from the Warren Commission?
Answer - don't release 26 accompanying volumes of evidence.
More than four decades ago, those 26 volumes, at odds with much of the Warren Report, set off a handful of researchers on parallel journeys to find the truth behind the JFK Assassination, trying to succeed where they believed their government had failed them.
It is because of those researchers that I'm writing this today. I'm the Executive Director of the Mary Ferrell Foundation, and want to take this opportunity to give a brief introduction to the work of the Foundation.
The MFF is a non-profit group dedicated to the exploration of the deeper stories behind the national tragedies and crises that shape our lives. Our main topics are the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. Our goal is to not only shed light on these tragedies, but place them in a modern context, showing how the events of the past irrevocably effect our present and future.
The focal point of the MFF site is our vast document archive, currently containing over one million pages of once-classified documents, many declassified as recently as the late 1990s. Ranging from foreign policy memos concerning the Vietnam War and President Kennedy's implementation of a withdrawal plan before his death, the secret war on Castro, and the records of the Church Committee, which in the 1970s, laid bare the dirty laundry of the intelligence agencies and revealed to the public the CIA-Mafia plots to murder Fidel Castro.
One of the most damning revelations to come out in the massive 90's declassification was the Operation Northwoods. Refused by Kennedy, these papers revealed planning by the JCS for faked and actual terrorist actions against the U.S. to be conducted by the U.S., but in a such a way as to blame them on Cuba. These attacks would provide a pretext for an all-out military invasion of Cuba, and the overthrow of Fidel Castro. What is past truly is prologue.
Over the next few months, I'll post more links to new documents in our archive, as well as featured books, essays, and more. Thanks again to the editors for giving me the chance to contribute to this blog, and I hope you all get a chance to check out the Foundation's website for yourself at www.maryferrell.org
just finished a short vid summarizing Operation Northwoods for those who've never heard of it.
any & all comments, suggestions, criticisms, feedback in general would be greatly appreciated.
The Bay of Pigs invasion is another example of a "False-Flag" operation, replete with airplanes re-painted to disguise their true origins, an actual attack, (on Cuba), and a complex cover story that unraveled quickly as the operation went down the tubes.
The book "The Invisible Government" by David Wise and Thomas B. Ross chronicles the debacle of this bungled operation, but paints JFK as a fully witting participant in the operation. This is contradicted by testimony by, among others, RFK, in the book, "Operation Zapata", a book that researcher John Hankey uses as source material in his underground film, "JFK II: The Bush Connection".

Global Research Editor's Note
The mainstream media is now acknowledging "Operation Northwoods", a (declassified) secret plan to kill innocent civilians: The objective was to "create a useful wave of indignation", blame Fidel Castro for the civilian deaths, with a view to building a pretext to invade Cuba.
This sounds familiar does it not? Northwoods was a dress rehearsal of 9/11. A mass casuality producing event involving citizens is used to galvanize public support for waging war on Afghanistan in 2001.
While 911 researchers have extensively analysed the logic of Operation Northwoods, its links to 9/11 and its role in the construction of the "Global War on Terrorism" the mainstream media has largely remained silent.

Jim Bamford, who discovered the Northwoods Document, discusses plans for the Iraq Invasion going back to 1996 with Neo-Conservative ties to Israeli interests. Does the death of William Colby [former CIA director] and Vince Foster for that matter have anything to do with what was told to fyi6reSEARCH back in the late 90's - that Colby was 'offed' because of his soon-to-be public objection to the "D-Plan" [disinformation]? And is this plan far more reaching than we can imagine, stretching into a far more pervasive form of "Operation Mockingbird"?

Working out how to start this post was pretty hard. As I am well aware, having been in the same position myself not too long ago, the idea that 9/11 was an inside job may seem too ludicrous to be countenanced. So let me start by saying 3 things: firstly, it is an idea that is now believed by 50 % of the 9/11 victim’s families http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2006/080706governmentcomplicit.htm
Lionel talks about operation North Woods in the first hour and 9/11 in the third hour. I think he needs more support from the movement....he's a lawyer, very intelligent and a great speaker. And he's also speaking truth on the same network as O'Rielly and Savage
So, here goes craniac launching into more uncharted territory. It is truly rewarding for me to have fellow bloggers from this esteemed body tell me things like "I've never seen that photo before" or ""When you put it that way, I guess it makes sense". I became a truther at roughly 2:00 MST on September 11, 2001. I've poured over every facet of research I could find since then. Some of it is outlandish, some is not mainstream, some is glaringly obvious evidence of criminal wrongdoing and flies directly in the face of the Government Fairy Tale. Some of what I found early on has been scrubbed from the Internet for a very long time. It's great to find a venue to share it in.
