"The American empire is imploding and going down, it is already visible before our eyes. The ideological and the political currency and cachet of this government... it's disgraced around the world. The American government is hated more than at any time in my lifetime, so we really have an empire that's in a slow-motion decline and it will decline. My two worries are... they are going to do a lot of bloodshed, a lot of wreckage before it goes down, and that what stands to replace them is the Chinese empire, and the Chinese empire is a lot more experienced than the American empire, which would be rather parvenue by Chinese standards. "
- Prof. John McMurtry.
I've blogged a couple of times now about a forthcoming documentary from the Australian production company, Upstream Media, called Shadowplay. I'm happy to report that Shadowplay is finally coming to fruition due to the dedicated work of Upstream's Gillian Norman. Her long-distance co-producer is Ian Woods of Global Outlook.
Thanks in part to donations from visitors of 911blogger, Shadowplay is emerging as a strong piece with a serious focus on 9/11 and the decline of the American empire.
Tonight on his GCN radio program, "Genesis World Report" (Tarpley hosts on Thursdays 7-9pm Central), Webster Tarpley commented on his FOX appearance and gave credit where it was due, to the Austin 9/11 Truth Squad that put John Kerry on the spot and to A Project for a New American Citizen (PNAC).
The comments take up the first 1/2 hour or so of the show. (The second hour of the program features a new interview with Joan Mellen, author of Kennedy assassination book, A Farewell to Justice, well worth a listen.)

Along with the media collection at the Citizen's Advocate, several media clips from the 9/11 Accountability Conference in Chandler, Arizona, have been posted at YouTube by Paula Gloria, Producer of "Farther Down the Rabbit Hole" which airs on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
Tarpley emphasizes the significance of Brzezinski's warning of a pretext to launch a suicidal war against Iran and other states. He also decries "holocaust denial" very directly, "Holocaust denial to me is pure historical idiocy. It is an absurdity from a historical point of view to deny the obvious facts of genocide against Jews and other populations in central Europe under the Nazi regime." (at the 00:53 mark)
EDIT: This video is primarily about Neocon war escalation and what you can do to prevent a global nuclear war, and not "holocaust denial". Nonetheless, when the preeminent MIHOPer goes out of his way to make such a clear statement on where he stands on such a touchy issue, it's news.

dc911truth held the first in a series of rallies in front of the White House from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. this Saturday. The aim of the rally was to condemn the current administration for their use of false-flag terrorism, and to alert the public to the likely use of false-flag provocations against Iran in the coming days and months.
Matt Sullivan and Webster Tarpley spoke to the small crowd that gathered, and dc911truth members passed out flyers and information cards to curious tourists and school groups in the vicinity. We will hold another rally next Saturday, Feb. 24, at 1:00 p.m., and every Saturday leading up to the march on the Pentagon, March 17th.
dc911truth will continue our efforts to educate the public about the hidden history of 9/11/2001 as we forge ahead. We hold meetings every week which are open to the public. If you live in the DC area you are invited to join us for a lively discussion of the issues.
Our next major event will be participation in the March 17 peace march on the Pentagon, sponsored by the ANSWER coalition.
(Tarpley issued this call to action today, informed by Brzezinski's warning to the U.S. Senate's Foreign Relations Committee on February 1st. Brzezinski's warning follows Congressman Ron Paul's warning on January 11 that "a contrived Gulf of Tonkin type incident may well occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran." Now, even Bush's former National Security Council Director for Iranian and Persian Gulf Affairs from 2001 to 2004, Hillary Mann, has joined the pretext-warning club, saying that "they're trying to push a provocative accidental conflict. They're pushing a series of increasing provocations against the Iranians in, I think, anticipation that Iran will eventually retaliate".)
STOP CHENEY’S NEW 9/11 WAR PROVOCATION
EMERGENCY ANTI-WAR DEMONSTRATION
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE BETWEEN LAFAYETTE PARK AND THE WHITE HOUSE
SATURDAYS 1 PM
The Cheney faction is steadily moving towards a nuclear sneak attack on Iran. All military assets necessary for this catastrophic war crime will shortly be in place, and all signs point towards an attack in February or March – in particular, beware the Ides of March. Zbigniew Brzezinski, former NSC Director in the Carter administration, delivered this warning to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Feb. 1:
“If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq or a terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a "defensive" U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.”
RBN is still pumping out radio broadcasts from a new domain;

There is a 9/11 marching contingent, but 9/11 speakers have been excluded from the official speakers podium, by the protest organizers, according to Tarpley.
