Remembering ‘Operation Paperclip,’ when national security trumped ethical concern

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/operation-paperclip-national-security-trumped-ethical-concern/

Published on Mar 31, 2014

After World War II, the government recruited dedicated Nazis — the scientists behind Hitler's formidable war machine — to come to the U.S. to protect American interests during the Cold War. Jeffrey Brown talks to journalist Annie Jacobsen about her new book, "Operation Paperclip," which sheds light on this veiled national security program and confronts the moral conundrum of whitewashing the past.

Dear AE911Truth Supporter,

Over the past several days you have helped us regain the slipped ground at on PBS’s website since we achieved #1 Most Watched and Most Shared rankings with Colorado Public Television (CPT12)’s showing of “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out.Thank you so much! As of this writing, your efforts have pushed us back up to the #2 Most Watched spot, after dropping for a time to #8.
 

We have always retained the "1 “Most Shared” spot, suggesting that people who see the explosive evidence are much more motivated to share it with others than are those who watch other PBS online previews and programs. That certainly does not surprise us … and it’s another point we can all make to help encourage the media to give us more and better coverage.

Action Alert: ESO Rockets to #2 on PBS in Just Three Weeks! Help Us Take It to #1 in Three Minutes!

New 9/11 truth documentary among "most watched" on PBS this week

http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/332051#tab=comments&sc=1530297

"9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out" is getting public attention and casting doubt on the scientific validity of the U.S. government's investigation into the WTC tragedy. PBS is the first major network to air the program.

Just days away from the 11th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy and months away from the U.S. presidential election, a game-changing 9/11 documentary is ranking number three among "most watched" documentaries on PBS and number one among "most shared." Available for free online August 18th - September 4th, the documentary could have a significant effect on public opinion. Both the Republicans and Democrats, as equally staunch defenders of the official story, stand to be affected if the public's suspicion of government corruption grows deeper.

Explosive WTC 7 Evidence Lights Up TV Screens Nationwide: AE911Truth Documentary Excerpt Makes Waves on 100+ PBS Stations

Written by Nory King

AE911Truth produced a five minute version of the 15-minute mini-documentary, “Architects and Engineers: Solving the Mystery of Building 7”, for the Spotlight On series broadcast by PBS on dozens of public television stations nationwide. According to the Nielsen Television Index, the short film was a resounding success, airing 678 times during the first three-month cycle, and was seen by an estimated 2.7 million viewers. The $10,000 that supporters like you donated to this project last year has paid off tremendously.

The Genesis of the Campaign

Two years ago, Wendy Rapkin of Trivue Entertainment contacted AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, to suggest producing a segment for the Spotlight On series. Spotlight On is an ongoing series of three-to-five minute filler programs for public television that has been airing for over 20 years. Rapkin, a long time supporter of AE911Truth, felt that this would be a good vehicle to increase exposure to the public about the explosive destruction of WTC 7 on the afternoon of September 11, 2001.

“I really wanted to get the word out about Building 7,” Rapkin said, “and the video AE911Truth produced is all about the science of its destruction.”

Gage then met with the senior producer of Trivue Entertainment, Larry Cohen, in New Jersey. An interview was conducted and Cohen was deeply impressed with the AE911Truth message and mission. He decided immediately that he would work with Gage to get a program on Spotlight On.

“This production is certainly the most controversial segment ever distributed by Trivue,” noted Cohen. When asked why he got involved with this contentious subject, he said, “Because I believe what you guys are saying is true – I believe you are right.”

We Are Change Colorado Interviews KBDI Channel 12's President/CEO Wick Roland

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikZTAmi8Lfc

Over the last couple years working with Colorado 911 Visibility and other activist groups in our area along with the wonderful people at KBDI channel 12 we were able to show many powerful films that have never been shown on network cable TV access before. KBDI broke ground by having the courage to air these incredible movies. These films were some of the most successful ever aired on KBDI. What that says to us is that as Wick Roland CEO says in the video "struck a chord with a large segment of our population."

Van Jones Explains 9/11 Petition In One Of His First Post-White House Interviews (VIDEO)

Van Jones, President Obama's former "Green Jobs Czar," spoke to Tavis Smiley in one of his first public interviews since his resignation last year.

Jones told Smiley he never signed the "truther" petition that was the catalyst downfall. The activist and author told Smiley about his "tough lesson":

Van Jones:... I believe that 9/11 was a conspiracy by Al-Qaida and Osama Bin Laden, and nobody else, trying to hurt America. What happened to me on that tough lesson learned for me, six years ago, I was at a conference, some people came up to me. They said, 'Hey, we represent 9-11 families.' I'm like, 'OK, good to meet you.' They said, 'We need your help. Will you help us?' I said, 'Sure, whatever you want.'

Hasan's Supervisor Warned Army In 2007
by DANIEL ZWERDLING

Two years ago, a top psychiatrist at Walter Reed Army Medical Center was so concerned about what he saw as Nidal Hasan's incompetence and reckless behavior that he put those concerns in writing. NPR has obtained a copy of the memo, the first evaluation that has surfaced from Hasan's file.

Officials at Walter Reed sent that memo to Fort Hood this year when Hasan was transferred there.

Nevertheless, commanders still assigned Hasan — accused of killing 13 people in a mass shooting at Fort Hood on Nov. 5 — to work with some of the Army's most troubled and vulnerable soldiers.

The Damning Memo

Message to PBS ombudsman Michael Getler about "Blueprint for Truth"

Dear mr. Getler,

In your column, which can be found at http://www.pbs.org/ombudsman/2009/09/pbs_yes_and_no.html

you say the following about "9/11: Blueprint for Truth":

"I'm not going to review the films, but on a personal level I find the idea embedded in "Blueprint" of a government conspiracy to blow up those buildings to be preposterous and simply beyond belief and I fault the station for promoting this as part of a pledge drive and presenting it without an accompanying on-the-air program in which critics have their say."

Sir, unless you DO review those films, you have no business commenting on them whatsoever.

In your column, you commit the following logical fallacies in order to sway your readers towards your viewpoint:

  1. Appeal to emotion
  2. Argument from personal incredulity
  3. Special pleading

Contact Your Local PBS Stations, And Ask Them To Play 9/11: Press For Truth

As most of you know, Colorado 9-11 Visibility and KBDI 12 recently showed 9/11: Press For Truth, and it was HUGELY successful. KBDI received a tremendous amount of praise for showing this important documentary.

Let your local PBS stations know about this successful event, and recommend to them to also show 9/11: Press For Truth.

You can find your local PBS station here:

http://www.pbs.org/stationfinder/stationfinder_relocalize.html

With any luck, other stations will mirror what KBDI has done. I have little doubt that it will receive the same amount of praise wherever it's shown.

Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Kyle Hence, Producer 9-11 Press for Truth

This episode of Visibility 9-11 welcomes back to the program Kyle Hence, founder of 9-11 Citizens Watch and producer of the excellent documentary 9-11 Press for Truth. Included is a brief discussion about the film as well as a new film Kyle is working on based on footnote #44 in Chapter 6 of the 9-11 Commission Report. A press release from the September 11th Advocates reads in part:

"In July 2004, when the 9/11 Commission released its Final Report, we read with enormous interest, Chapter 6 - "From Threat to Threat", including footnote #44. Footnote #44 details an instance where a CIA desk officer intentionally withheld vital information from the FBI about two of the 9/11 hijackers who were inside the United States. This footnote further states that the CIA desk officer covered-up the decision to withhold said vital information from the FBI. Finally, footnote #44 states that the CIA desk officer could not recall who told her to carry out such acts."

Also included in this discussion are the circumstances surrounding the historic national premier of 9-11 Press for Truth on a major market PBS station. On June 3, 2009 at 7:00pm, 9-11 Press for Truth will be shown on KBDI, Channel 12 in Denver Colorado. This historic broadcast will feature in studio interviews during the broadcast of Kyle Hence, Bob McIlvaine, and a representative of Colorado 9-11 Visibility. As has been the case for the past couple of years, Colorado 9-11 Visibility will also be manning the phone banks during the broadcast which is also part of their periodic fund drives at KBDI. A great list of 9-11 books and DVD's will be offered as premium gifts to viewers who pledge during this broadcast. Please contact KBDI and let them know how much you appreciate this historic broadcast and if you can, give them a donation which best fits your budget.

It was an act of unmitigated terrorism. On March 5, 2009, KBDI, a public television station in Denver, Colorado, ran Aaron Russo’s America: Freedom to Fascism during a fund raising drive. KBDI had notorious terrorist Gary Franchi of the Lone Lantern Society on to pitch for donations and talk about Russo and his landmark film.
