WASHINGTON A White House plan to broaden the National Security Agency’s wiretapping powers won a key procedural victory in the Senate on Thursday, as backers defeated a more restrictive plan by Senate Democrats that would have imposed more court oversight on government spying.
I don't remember when exactly I decided that the destruction of the World Trade Center (WTC) was undoubtedly an inside job. I'm certain that it wasn't long after 9/11 because the videos of the collapse raised real questions early for me. However, it's now a decade after the event and a large portion of the US population hasn't seen the physical problems connected with the government's explanation of how those buildings fell. I'm beginning to think that my "seeing" the impossibility of the government's conspiracy theory (GCT) when looking at videos of the falling buildings is largely a wiring thing.
Some people have brains that always seem to know where they are in physical space, others couldn't find north with a compass. So it must be with understanding how physical forces work together. It's totally obvious to me that the symmetry of the debris falling straight down through what should have been largely undamaged lower floors of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at free fall speed (the path of most resistance) means that none of these buildings fell because of fire or because planes hit two of them. Some other force had to remove the support extremely symmetrically in the lower floors. However, most of the people I know don't seem to have the same reaction to this evidence.
A petition has been set up on the White House's website calling for a new investigation of the events of 9/11 by an independent prosecutor. (The petition can be found at http://wh.gov/b1N . Complete text of the petition is below.) Petitioning the White House directly is a new tool to empower more direct input to the government. While internet-based petitions are certainly not new, it is new for the White House and it has a benefit that no other online petition can claim. If enough signatures are collected (25,000), the website rules state that there will be an official response from the appropriate agency emailed to every signer. That is something no other internet petition can even come close to doing.
On the down side completing the petitioning process is not easy. First, in order to sign a petition, people must complete the account set up process at the White House website (www.whitehouse.gov). Setting up an account requires a name, zip code, and email address. And the email address must be verified (by successfully receiving and responding to an email from the WhiteHouse.gov website) before the account set up is complete. Petition signers are not directly identified on the website, however, each signer's first name, date signing, and city are shown in the signer list.
Real-Time Raid Hoax Exposed As Photo Op
Panetta: Obama did not see bin Laden being killed
May 03, 2011
By Michael Winter
In an interview with the PBS NewsHour, CIA Director Leon Panetta said that although President Obama was watching some "real-time aspects" of the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound, he did not see the al-Qaeda leader being killed.
Here's part of the exchange with Jim Lehrer:
JIM LEHRER: Did you have access to video of what was actually happening in the compound, etc.?
LEON PANETTA: We had live-time intelligence information that we were dealing with during the operation itself.
JIM LEHRER: Did you actually see - or did you actually see Osama bin Laden get shot?

In some ways she was far more acute than Winston, and far
less susceptible to Party propaganda. Once when he happened
in some connection to mention the war against Eurasia, she
startled him by saying casually that in her opinion the war was
not happening. The rocket bombs which fell daily on London
were probably fired by the Government of Oceania itself, “just
to keep the people frightened.” Orwell, 1984, 127.

Pressure Mounts to Move Terror Trial
Obama Administration Considers Moving Trial of Accused Sept. 11 Mastermind to Remote Location
By Bob Orr
(CBS) Pledging to bring justice to the victims of Sept. 11, Attorney General Eric Holder declared that accused mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would stand trial at the scene of the crime, "in a courthouse just blocks away from where the twin towers once stood."
But with mounting political pressure, the Obama Administration is now strongly considering moving the trial from Manhattan to a more remote location, reports CBS News correspondent Bob Orr.
9/11 Commission Staffer Email: "The White House is misleading the public about the extent of their cooperation."
Here is an internal 9/11 Commission e-mail from staffer Warren Bass calling a claim by White House press spokesman Scott McClellan that the administration was co-operating fully "flatly untrue." Thank you to Kevin Fenton of www.historycommons.org for showing this to me. The source link is blurry. I have uploaded the downloaded/clear version for you to download.
The Associated Press reports that a White House internal investigation has released the findings of an internal investigation into the recent incident involving a low-flying Air Force One over New York City; and that, in consequence of the 'embarassing incident,' Louis Caldera of the White House Military Office has submitted his resignation, effectively accepting the blame:
WASHINGTON – The White House official who authorized a $328,835 photo-op of Air Force One soaring above New York City resigned under fire Friday as the administration tried to move past the embarrassing incident that sent panicked workers rushing into the streets amid flashbacks of Sept. 11.
As former Army Secretary Louis Caldera took the fall for the flyover, the White House released the findings of an internal investigation that portrayed him as out of the loop in a cycle of missed messages and questionable judgments as plans for the photo shoot proceeded.

WeAreChangeLA 'debriefs' former CIA Case Officer Robert Baer about apparent Mossad and White House 9/11 foreknowledge, and more
On October 16, 2008, Robert Baer, who was a CIA Case Officer in the Middle East over the course of almost two decades, participated in a discussion at the Hammer Museum entitled "A Third War: The Threat of War with Iran." Dr. Trita Parsi was part of the discussion which was moderated by Ian Masters.
Baer was briefly interrupted during the discussion by Jeremy Rothe-Kushel for clarity's sake, after he brought up 9/11 and reaffirmed his recently aired belief that Osama bin Laden is likely dead. That part went something like this-
Bob: The chances of Bin Laden being dead are very high. The question is are they going to drag him out in the next two weeks. Is he going to [laughter] out of cold storage and say "we finally got him." I don't know that he's dead, but he probably is.
FBI was told to blame Anthrax scare on Al Qaeda by White House officials
BY JAMES GORDON MEEK DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
Saturday, August 2nd 2008, 6:32 PM
WASHINGTON - In the immediate aftermath of the 2001 anthrax attacks, White House officials repeatedly pressed FBI Director Robert Mueller to prove it was a second-wave assault by Al Qaeda, but investigators ruled that out, the Daily News has learned.
After the Oct. 5, 2001, death from anthrax exposure of Sun photo editor Robert Stevens , Mueller was "beaten up" during President Bush's morning intelligence briefings for not producing proof the killer spores were the handiwork of terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden, according to a former aide.
"They really wanted to blame somebody in the Middle East ," the retired senior FBI official told The News.

Judge: White House can ignore e-mail information requests By Timothy B. Lee Ars Technica June 16, 2008
"A federal judge today sided with the Bush administration in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit related to missing White House e-mails. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly... held that the White House's Office of Administration was not a federal agency as that term is defined by the FOIA and was therefore not obligated to respond to FOIA requests."
"CREW [Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington] was seeking internal documents that could reveal the extent of the missing e-mail problem. Not surprisingly, the Bush administration has been reluctant to release those potentially embarrassing records. Indeed, after more than a quarter-century of complying with FOIA requests, last year the Office of Administration announced that it had re-considered its status under FOIA and would no longer comply with FOIA requests."

Sen. Whitehouse Reveals Secret DoJ Legal Memos: Bush Determines What Is Constitutional
Anybody have anything on the alleged fire at the White House on 9/11?
Word is that local (D. C./Maryland/Northern Virginia) news stations covered it but like the GWB threats, it never got lumped into the mix.
Does 9/11 Truth constitute a threat to "the peace and stability of Iraq"? Regardless, consider this another brick in the wall of the police state.

New 9/11 Study Has Direct Links To Government, Pentagon Black Ops: "Independent" study financed by Feds
New 9/11 Study Has Direct Links To Government, Pentagon Black Ops
"Independent" study financed by Feds
Friday, June 22, 2007
A newly released Purdue University animation showing how fire caused the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11 claims to be independent but in reality has been federally funded and was conducted by individuals with direct links to the Pentagon and the White House.
Earlier this week we covered the news that the new study roughly correlates with the findings of the 2005 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report and supports the official line that the airplanes stripped away crucial fireproofing material and that the weakened towers collapsed under their own weight.
White House Official Grilled on Alleged Censorship of Post-9/11 Contamination Risks
by Democracy Now (reposted)
Thursday Jun 21st, 2007 10:44 AM
Thursday, June 21, 2007 : A new congressional study has revealed the Environmental Protection Agency misled Lower Manhattan residents about levels of indoor air contamination after 9/11. The report was released during a Senate hearing Wednesday on the EPA's response after the collapse of the World Trade Center. James Connaughton, the Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, was questioned about whether the Bush administration manipulated public information about the health dangers following the collapse.
Senators Hillary Clinton and Frank Lautenberg both questioned Connaughton about a 2003 EPA Inspector General report which claimed that he personally edited EPA press releases. Prior to his confirmation as the Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, Connaughton worked as a lobbyist for the mining, chemical, utilities and asbestos industry.
According to Michael Isikoff at Newsweek, "The White House is staging a high-level exercise Saturday (today) to test responses to the prospect of a massive domestic terrorist attack involving IEDs (improvised explosive devices)—the same deadly roadside bombs that have been used by insurgents against the U.S. military in Iraq...."
"As part of the exercise, the officials will be handed a thick binder which lays out a scenario involving simultaneous terror attacks by “sleeper cells” of 20 to 25 individuals each dispersed in five cities across the country: New York, Washington, Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles. The officials will then be tested on how they direct their respective agencies to respond. “We’ve designed this to overtax the system, to push the system beyond the breaking point,” said one senior administration official familiar with planning for the event, who declined to be identified talking about it before it takes place...."
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.
This Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006, dc911truth held a mock shredding of the 9/11 Commission Report, in Lafayette Park, in front of the White House, from 11:00 am to Noon. This event is one of a series of events sponsored by 9/11 truth groups across the country on the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. We wanted to show our solidarity and support for the 911truth groups in Boston, San Francisco, Milwaukee, St. Louis, and elsewhere.
The event was kicked off with a reading of the Boston 9/11 truth resolution by Matt Sullivan, followed by a presentation by Webster Tarpley. Then members of dc911truh.org took turns reading from David Ray Griffins list of 115 lies, omissions and distortions of the Kean-Hamilton-Zelikow report. As each lie was read out, another page of the report was ripped out and fed to the shredder. The event lasted about 90 minutes and attracted the interest of dozens of tourists and secret service in addition to the roughly thirty people who came specifically for the Shredding.
We handed out several hundred flyers, information cards and 911truth DVDs to interested passersby.
Afterward the group went to lunch at a local sandwich shop. All-in-all a successful event.
