WASHINGTON — Internal emails among U.S. military officers indicate that no sailors watched Osama bin Laden’s burial at sea from the USS Carl Vinson and traditional Islamic procedures were followed during the ceremony.
The emails, obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act, are heavily blacked out, but are the first public disclosure of government information about the al-Qaida leader’s death. The emails were released Wednesday by the Defense Department.
Bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011, by a Navy SEAL team that assaulted his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
One email stamped secret and sent on May 2 by a senior Navy officer briefly describes how bin Laden’s body was washed, wrapped in a white sheet, and then placed in a weighted bag.
According to another message from the Vinson’s public affairs officer, only a small group of the ship’s leadership was informed of the burial.
Hindu activists protested the production on Friday of "Zero Dark Thirty", Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming film about the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden. AFP reports that members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or VHP, disrupted shooting in the north India city of Chandigarh and demanded that any representations of Pakistan on Indian soil be taken down.
From NY Times …there have been a million or so visitors to the memorial since it opened last September, and there have been no suicide attempts. Nonetheless, the police said a plan had been put in place. “We have to think of these possibilities,” Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said in an interview with Esquire magazine. “People might commit suicide. We’re concerned about the possibility of somebody jumping in.” ………. “Our big worry several years ago, in the original design, was terrorism, and now we add suicide to the equation,” said Glenn P. Corbett, an associate professor of fire science at John Jay College, who is advising the Skyscraper Safety Campaign in its criticism of the memorial as inadequately safe and secure. “I think it’s going to happen — a suicide. I think it is an unbelievably emotional site.”

The New Yorker has published a story planted on Nicholas Schmidle by unidentified sources who claim to be familiar with the alleged operation that murdered Osama bin Laden.
There is no useful information in the story. Its purpose seems simply to explain away or cover up holes in the original story, principally why did the Seals murder an unarmed, unresisting Osama bin Laden whose capture would have resulted in a goldmine of terrorist information and whose show trial would have rescued the government’s crumbling 9/11 story?
The gullible Schmidle tells us: “‘There was never any question of detaining or capturing him–it wasn’t a split-second decision. No one wanted detainees,’ the special-operations officer told me.” In other words, the SEALs murdered bin Laden, because the US government did not want detainees, not because trigger-happy stupid SEALs destroyed a font of terrorist information.
Why did the SEALS dump bin Laden’s body in the ocean instead of producing the evidence to a skeptical world?

At the site of the 9/11 memorial, a forum is being held called, "9/11 Conspiracy Theories: Why They Exist and What Role They Play in Society."
Link to RSVP (YOU MUST RSVP BEFORE EVENT)
"Professors Kathryn Olmsted and Michael Barkun address broader questions of why conspiracy theories exist and how they should be viewed in the context of post-9/11 communities. Both have written books on the subject and will discuss the psychological underpinnings of these theories, their historical roles in shaping public opinion and how we should view or evaluate their relevance today".
Here's a video of Prof. Olmsted talking about her book on Conspiracy's.
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Steve R. Pieczenik says "9/11 was a false flag operation, I would tell this in court"
The above video is an excerpt from an interview between Alex Jones and Dr. Steve Pieczenik entitled 'Bin Laden, The Oswald Like Patsy Died 10 Years Ago'. In this excerpt Pieczenik speaks about both 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden, though it was his statements about 9/11 that inspired me make this particular part of the interview available here.
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under three different administrations Steve R. Pieczenik says he is prepared to tell a federal grand jury the name of a top general who told him directly 9/11 was a false flag attack
I've recently come across Professor Steven Hoffmans, “There Must Be a Reason: Osama, Saddam and Inferred Justification.”
It fills in alot when trying to understand how others are unable to take in the debunked myths of the official story. It also is an invaluable intel framework on how to use this obstacle as an opportunity for mainstream disclosure.
Here's a follow up with Judge Napolitano cajoling Geraldo to say...pretty much what he said a week ago.

IDF admits doctoring audio of raid on Gaza flotilla By Daniel Tencer
Sunday, June 6th, 2010 -- 3:08 pm
The Israeli Defense Force has issued a "clarification" admitting it manipulated audio of its raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
On Friday, the IDF released audio of what it said was an exchange between Israel Navy officers and the crew of the Mavi Marmara, the main vessel in the flotilla. In it, voices could be heard telling the Israeli soldiers to "go back to Auschwitz" and "we're helping Arabs go against the US -- don't forget 9/11, guys."
But flotilla passengers quickly began disputing the veracity of the audio clip.
April 20, 2008 The New York Times broke the news that the Pentagon (and members of the Bush Administration) had been coordinating with retired military analysts on talking points to cover in their media appearances, as part of a 'psyop' on the American public to sell the 'post-9/11 world', the 'War on Terror', Guantanamo, torture, and the continued occupation of Iraq. These 'analysts', many of whom had undisclosed conflicts of interest such as financial ties to defense contractors, appeared over 4500 times in the media, as part of this campaign. The media outlets responsible for participating in the program- which includes the NY Times- have generally not acknowledged any fault on their own part, and some commentators attempted to spin the psyop as simply the Pentagon telling their side of things. A DOD Inspector General investigation found no wrong doing on the part of the Pentagon, but that report was later found to be so flawed, it was retracted and removed from the DOD's website.
I've been working on other stuff, but given the publication of Landis' article at opednews i have taken the time to respond- lots of html links, including one to Landis' article
Rebuttal to "Corrections": Paul Landis Response to my 9/11 "Pentagon Hole" Psyop article
This is a rebuttal to "CORRECTIONS" by Paul Landis, which was a response to my article, the link to which is formatted incorrectly in Landis’ and is currently not working:
Is the 9/11 "Pentagon Hole" a Psyop to Distract from Real Questions?
Updated after constructive criticism from TruthAction.org and TruthMove.org, thank you to everyone who commented there and here, i've learned from all of it.
Lots of html links in the body; see the opednews.com posting- also, please come leave comments, lots of "in the dark" and "on the fence" people visit OpEdNews.com.
I appreciate constructive (and non) criticism; if you have any ideas for how i can improve this piece, let me know, in the comments or privately- is there anything i can word better? Anything relevant and important that i forgot? Better links I could've used? If i agree, i'll add it.
Note: If you currently believe a 757 did NOT hit the Pentagon, that doesn't mean I think you're Cointelpro or a Troll.
Note to genuine Trolls and Cointelpro agents: I enjoy baiting you, but i like reading your comments even more; how can i get to know you if you don't talk to me?
A symposium is being held in Jersey City July 1 on how to teach 9/11; while i pity the teachers that will attempt to teach the OCT to a generation avidly embracing the internet and wise to reality, critical thinking and the corporate govt/media conflicts and agenda, it is disturbing seeing well-funded attempts like this to indoctrinate the younger generations, the future of our nation, our posterity with evil lies. Similar to ABC's Path to 9/11 attempting to team up with Scholastic- they failed on the joint venture, i think- due to public outcry. Submit your comments if you have children and you care about the quality of their education, or if you don't have kids and just care about the health of society and the future of humanity.

It's right there, tucked away in the pages of newer American history textbooks, along with the American Revolution, slavery and the Civil War, two world wars, the Great Depression, the civil rights movement and Vietnam.

Unfair Dealing by David Weingarten
I just came across this video about the alleged Toronto terrorist plot, which was a total "made in Canada" PsyOp.
If you have not seen it yet, you may want to check it out and let others know too.
Afterwards, think about that plastic "hand grenade" mirror ornament too, as seen in the recent Walmart video, and as innocent as that ''may' have been, how dangerous this 'could' be for the individuals involved, and for the movement.
Thanks to http://stoplying.ca/ for hosting this!
If all of the parts to do not appear in your browser, go to their site and try it there.
Yesterday I found an indebt feature on http:news.com.au which struck me as odd. Jihadi Sites taunting Australians about their withdrawl from Iraq. Newly elected prime minister Rudd promised the withdrawl of australian troops if elected. The fact that he was elected clearly showed that Australia wanted out of the illegal war with Iraq.
Iragies clearly want the occupation to end and want all the foreign troops to leave. The only people to gain from these taunts are the fashist leaders of the USA. Are we looking at a full swing psyop false flag opperation?
Michael Medved Still Won't Face Facts that 9-11 was a "military-industrial-intelligence complex, black budget, falseflag, psyop"
On thursday, I called into Michael Medved's "Disagreement Day" show once again to attempt to bring up some 9-11 facts. Although I got pre-empted and distracted by Medved, I got my basic point out there early on and responded fairly adequately to his questions. Maybe I speculated a bit too much when I answered his question about the reason for the Afghanistan War with "opium money." We eventually proceeded to talking about the '93 WTC bombing. And ended up with Medved giving me earnest, heart-felt advice to not ruin my life "with this stuff."
The American Truth
The American Truth is the latest work by Nick Shelton that explores the controversies of the September 11th attacks.
A little about The American Truth
Part nonfiction, part novel - The American Truth paints a picture of the “secrets” of 9/11. This page-turner makes you question whether you witnessed one of the most controversial events of all of history.
The fiction section puts the 9/11 controversies into a riveting, action-packed narrative similar to that of the novel The Da Vinci Code. The non-fiction section provides an overview of the 9/11 controversies.
Purpose of AmTruth.com
The purpose of this site is not to sell copies of The American Truth. Much of the book is actually available for free on this website. I created this site to:
• provide an interactive atmosphere for those who have read The American Truth;
• allow anyone with Internet access to learn more about the important issues addressed in the book;
• provide relevant information for those interested in the controversies surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Someone read her on-screen notes a bit too literally.
I went through the archive.org foorage (available here: http://911blogger.com/node/10284) and cut out the parts I found important.... 24GB in all. I also included a copy of "911 The Explosive Reality" (without the "red falshes" error at the end) and Robert Wright's (damming) speech to the national press club. I'm not sure they will let this stay up... please grab it now and host if you can.
The complete list is here (pls ignore any spelling errors ;-):
PS. The full 198GB set (http://911blogger.com/node/10284) is "well seeded" now if you were waiting to download it.
Like all of us, I have sometimes been surprised by what seemed to be irrational and overly emotional responses from close friends, respected colleagues or family members on the issue of 9/11 truth. After each such incident, I wondered how someone could appear to be so blind even to the big problems with some of the most basic undisputed facts of 9/11, like the fact that our servants in government have failed to give us an explanation for the collapse of WTC7 and the fact that the only arguments which even begin to address the concerns of citizens questioning the quality of our servants' work-product, The 9/11 Commission Report, were given to us by a privately owned magazine, and a cheesy one at that, instead of from our servants themselves. Why couldn't my loved ones see the elephants in the living room?
The common knowledge is that 9/11 catalyzed what many refer to the “New World Order”, regardless of how things really went down that day. From there this “NWO” is assumed to be a mere push for global domination (imperialism). In essence, the general concept of this NWO ends there, but in truth it’s something much more powerful and frightening than a mere quest for imperial domination: Artificial Intelligence, and my new video blows the lid right off this completely ignored threat.
It’s really quite obvious that the 9/11 event distracted the population, at least for a time, from any concept of truth, with this so-called “War on Terror”. In the foggy aftermath, those skeptical of 9/11 and this war have found a focus and often a newfound drive to learn “The Truth”. But even more importantly is that without 9/11 there would be alarmists, ”conspiracy theorists”, and just people who generally look into such things.
SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
CREATING BLIND HATRED: 9/11 MEDIA MANIPULATION MILITARY RESEARCH AND PLANNING
Can we trust the visual record of September 11 that we all witnessed on television?
Should researchers in the 9/11 Truth community dismiss the role of the mainstream media in carrying out psychological warfare against the American people, or should they consider witting and unwitting media cooperation in the events of September 11, 2001?
Rense.com has now posted an article entitled "911 'No-Planes' Conspirators Seek To Sabotage Truth" by the prolific Dick Eastman. The first paragraph of his Rense.com Op-Ed article (which you should read at http://rense.com/general74/911s.htm) is as follows:
Think about it. While the real investigators take the evidence and link them to men in the Defense Department and in Israel -- the no-planers remain stuck on the assertion that all the 45 video recordings were faked and that all the witnesses who saw the planes are liars and the just make the vaguest totally detached references to "the perps" or just "perps".
Without expressing my opinion on which hypotheses are true and which are false, let me ask some semi-facetious, semi-rhetorical questions:
Let's see now... No Big Boeing crashed into the Pentagon, right? No Big Boeing crashed in Shanksville, right? But most people still believe that Two (2) Big Boeings crashed into the WTC towers, right? After all, we all saw it on TV; and the mainstream TV media & others couldn't fake such a big lie; and the real 9/11 Perpetrators could not afford to do magic that is better than David Copperfield to trick all those 9/11 WTC eyewitnesses [who are certainly NOT lying], right?
