9/11 ‘ODDITIES’ BREAKING NEWS

Last updated: 05/22/2011 22:28:39

FBI Thriller, Published in 1999, References 9/11 –A 1999 best-selling thriller makes explicit references to 9/11 By Lori Price and Michael Rectenwald, www.legitgov.org 10 Mar 2011 The CLG received an email, including an interesting observation by Suz. Suz notes that the events of 9/11 were mentioned in a thriller published two years earlier.
9/11: ‘Awkward gaps and contradictions in official explanations’ – You betcha! By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 26 Jan 2011 I’d like to know *once and for all* how Osama bin Laden was able to command NORAD to ‘stand down’ the morning of the 9/11 attacks? I’d also like to know how bin Laden was able to ‘pull‘ Lucky Larry’s Building 7 (which, incidentally, was announced as having collapsed on the BBC before it even (exploded then) fell — truth be damned). Bin Laden gave the order to shoot down a US commercial aircraft over Shanksville, PA? And, the lone terrorist rushed to squander, apparently in conjunction with the FBI — like a squirrel in the dead of winter — the surveillance footage of the ‘plane’ that hit the Pentagon? Osama bin Laden was responsible for ‘huge surges in purchases of put options on stocks of the two airlines used in the attack — United Airlines and American Airlines?’
9/11 Truth Is No “Parlor Game” 21 Jan 2011 By Jim Fetzer A disturbing article, “The 9/11 ‘Truth’ Parlor Game” (15 January 2011), by Robert Parry, advances the indefensible theory that the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was affected by the shooter’s interest in 9/11 truth. While there are good reasons to suspect that the political climate nurtured by the right wing may have influenced him (by targeting a series of representatives using the cross-hairs of a telescopic site, for example), there is no reason to believe than anyone associated with the 9/11 truth movement has targeted any members of Congress–other than attempting to expose them to the evidence that research has unearthed, which has shown that virtually every claim the government has made about 9/11 is provably false.
NASA Flight Director Confirms 9/11 Aircraft Speed As “Elephant In the Room” By Pilots For 9/11 Truth 22 Jun 2010 Recently, Pilots For 9/11 Truth have analyzed the speeds reported for the aircraft utilized on 9/11. Numerous aviation experts have voiced their concerns regarding the extremely excessive speeds reported above Maximum Operating for the 757 and 767, particularly, United and American Airlines 757/767 Captains who have actual flight time in all 4 aircraft reportedly used on 9/11. These experts state the speeds are impossible to achieve near sea level in thick air if the aircraft were a standard 757/767 as reported. Combined with the fact the airplane which was reported to strike the south tower of the World Trade Center was also producing high G Loading while turning and pulling out from a dive, the whole issue becomes incomprehensible to fathom a standard 767 can perform such maneuvers at such intense speeds exceeding Maximum Operating limits of the aircraft.
‘9/11 panel was warned not to probe too deeply’ –Leaked confidential documents have revealed that senior officials from the former US administration had warned a 9/11 investigation panel against probing too deeply into the terrorist attacks. 18 Mar 2010 In a letter obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the 9/11 Commission was refused permission to question terror suspects, with the Bush administration arguing that by doing so the panel would “cross” a “line” and obstruct the administration’s efforts to protect the nation. Citing the need to “Safeguard the national security, including protection of Americans from [their] future terrorist attacks,” the government officials demanded the Commission not make further attempts at conducting a deeper probe into the September 11 terror attacks. [Right, they didn’t want people to know that 9/11 was an inside job. Gibbs and DiNozzo would have had the investigation wrapped up in the first 42 minutes of ‘NCIS.’ Abby’s mass spectrometer would reveal the explosive residue in WTC 1, 2 and ‘Lucky’ Larry ‘the smartest thing to do is pull it‘ Silverstein’s WTC 7 (not even hit by any planes), which was announced on the BBC as having fallen about a half hour before it actually did fall. Oops. McGee would analyze the insider trading (Pre-9/11 Put Options on Companies Hurt by Attack Indicates Foreknowledge) and have the whole kit and caboodle delivered with lots of time remaining for Tony and Ziva to do the flirt thing. I have a whole script penned. CBS: Are you interested? –LRP]
David Ray Griffin: April/May 2010 Speaking Tour Itinerary 18 Mar 2010
Explosive News 22 Feb 2010 A lingering technical question about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks still haunts some, and it has political implications: How did 200,000 tons of steel disintegrate and drop in 11 seconds? A thousand architects and engineers want to know, and are calling on Congress to order a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center. “In order to bring down this kind of mass in such a short period of time, the material must have been artificially, exploded outwards,” says Richard Gage, a San Francisco architect and founder of the nonprofit Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Mr. Gage, who is a member of the American Institute of Architects, managed to persuade more than 1,000 of his peers to sign a new petition requesting a formal inquiry.
New 9/11 photos released By James Fetzer, Ph.D. 10 Feb 2010 Newly released aerial photos (AP via ABC News, Det. Greg Semendinger) of the World Trade Center terror attack capture the towers’ dramatic collapse, from just after the first fiery plane strike to the apocalyptic dust clouds that spread over lower Manhattan. But the photos suggest something else was going on. This does not look like a “collapse”.
FBI admits Spanish politican was model for ‘high-tech’ Osama bin Laden photo-fit –Mr Llamazares said the mistake showed the “low level” of US intelligence services. 16 Jan 2010 The FBI has admitted using a photograph of a bearded Spanish politician as the basis for a mocked-up photofit image showing how Osama Bin Laden might look now. The US state department was forced to withdraw the mocked up photo-image, circulated around the world last week, after the discovery that it was not quite as technically sophisticated as the FBI had originally claimed. Gaspar Llamazares, a member of Spain’s communist party and the former leader of the United Left coalition in parliament, said his forehead, hair and jaw-line had been “cut and pasted” from an old campaign photograph. [Notice that the FBI — which couldn’t stop an asthma attack, never mind a terror attack — picked a leftist as their Osama bin Laden?]
Spanish politician to sue FBI over Bin Laden photo 17 Jan 2010 Spanish politician Gaspar Llamazares threatens to prosecute the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for using his photo to produce al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] leader Osama bin Laden’s modern image. Llamazares, the former leader of Spain’s United Left communist party and the caucus’s current spokesperson in the parliament, has expressed ‘stupefaction’ over the FBI’s misuse of his picture to compose a digitally-enhanced photo of the al-Qaeda leader, warning the agency of legal action unless justification is provided.
Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, omits 9/11 while bashing Obama on terror 08 Jan 2010 Rudy Giuliani has been teased for only having three words in his vocabulary – a noun, a verb and 9/11 – but Friday “America’s Mayor” seemed to forget about 9/11. The embarrassing flub came as Giuliani hit the morning news shows to suggest that President Obama needs to take more cues from ex-President [sic] George W. Bush when it comes to fighting terror. “One of the right things [Bush] did was treat this as a war on terror,” Giuliani told “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos. Then Giuliani proclaimed, in words he would soon regret, “We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We’ve had one under Obama,” referring to November’s shootings at Fort Hood by a radical Army psychiatrist. [Oops! Unindicted senile 9/11 co-conspirator, Rudy Giuliani, ‘forgets’ his complicity in the murder of 3,000 US citizens under Bush so that he, Lucky Larry ‘Maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.‘ Silverstein and the rest of Bush’s merry cabal of sociopaths, could make billion$ on their phony ‘war on terror.’ –LRP]
9/11: Pentagon Aircraft Hijack Impossible –Flight Deck Door Closed For Entire Flight (PilotsFor911Truth) Newly decoded data provided by an independent researcher and computer programmer from Australia exposes alarming evidence that the reported hijacking aboard American Airlines Flight 77 was impossible to have existed. A data parameter labeled “FLT DECK DOOR”, cross checks with previously decoded data obtained by Pilots For 9/11 Truth from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) through the Freedom of Information Act.
Accused 9/11 plotter Khalid Sheikh Mohammed faces New York ‘trial’ –AG: All five to be tried together; prosecutors will seek death penalty 13 Nov 2009 Five Guantanamo Bay detainees with alleged ties to the 9/11 conspiracy, including accused mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be transferred to New York to go on trial in civilian court, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday. Mohammed, Ramzi Bin al-Shibh, Walid bin Attash, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi will all be transferred to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York — a short distance from the World Trade Center towers that were destroyed in the September 11 attacks. [KSM was waterboarded 183 times in one month. (Gee, I’d confess to the 9/11 attacks, too.) Regrettably, the actual architects of the 9/11 terror attacks — the Bush/Cheney cabal — have yet to be tried for treason and war crimes. –LRP]
Fifty questions on 9/11 By Pepe Escobar 11 Sep 2009 It’s September 11 all over again – eight years on. The George W Bush administration is out. The “global war on terror” is still on, renamed “overseas contingency operations” by the Barack Obama administration. Obama’s “new strategy” – a war escalation – is in play in AfPak. Osama bin Laden may be dead or not. “Al-Qaeda” remains a catch-all ghost entity. September 11 – the neo-cons’ “new Pearl Harbor” – remains the darkest jigsaw puzzle of the young 21st century.
Sheen wants to discuss his 9/11 theories with Obama 09 Sep 2009 Actor Charlie Sheen has written a letter to President Barack Obama requesting a meeting over Sheen’s theories about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Sheen has always been outspoken about his views on the attacks, supporting a conspiracy theory that the U.S. government at the time defrauded the public with its official story about the incident. The star has now written to Obama asking him to reopen the investigation into 9/11.
Independent Investigation Into Pentagon Attack Yields Alarming Information 30 Aug 2009 A three year independent investigation into the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon has yielded new eyewitness evidence [an 81-minute video presentation entitled National Security Alert] which, according to the Southern California-based researchers who conducted the investigation, “conclusively (and unfortunately) establishes as a historical fact that the violence which took place in Arlington that day was not the result of a surprise attack by suicide hijackers, but rather a military black operation involving a carefully planned and skillfully executed deception.”
Second 9/11 Investigation Petition Moves Toward NYC November Ballot By Barbara G. Ellis for Portland 9/11 Legislative Alliance 20 Aug 2009 A second 9/11 investigation about the destruction of the World Trade Center and attack on the Pentagon–this one independent of the U.S. government–may start late this year if legal debris is cleared away for approval as a referendum issue on November 3 in New York City.
Part 4 of 4: Did Fluorine Cause the WTC Destruction? By Barry Ball, Barbara Ellis, and Russ Hallberg –Portland 9/11 Legislative Alliance 26 Jul 2009 This is the fourth article in a four-part series stemming from our organization’s crafting and presenting a proposed bill in late 2008 to nine members of the U.S. House. It urges an independent investigation by national and international experts in science/technology to determine which of the 14 major theories about primary causal agents—fire and thermite to directed energy weapons—destroyed the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
Part 3 of 4: Did Plasmoid Gas and Infrared Beams Cause the WTC Destruction? By Barry Ball, Barbara Ellis, and Russ Hallberg –Portland 9/11 Legislative Alliance 20 Jul 2009 This is the third article in a four-part series stemming from our organization’s crafting and presenting a proposed bill in late 2008 to nine members of the U.S. House. It urges an independent investigation by national and international experts in science/technology to determine which of the 14 major theories about primary causal agents–fire and thermite to directed energy weapons–destroyed the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
Part 2 of 4: Were Mini-Nuke Bombs the Cause of the WTC Destruction? By By Barry Ball, Barbara Ellis, and Russ Hallberg –Portland 9/11 Legislative Alliance 16 Jul 2009 This is the second article in a four-part series stemming from our organization’s crafting and presenting a proposed bill in late 2008 to nine members of the U.S. House. It urges an independent investigation by national and international experts in science/technology to determine which of the 14 major theories about primary causal agents–fire and thermite to directed energy weapons–destroyed the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
Part 1 of 4: Were Nuclear Reactors the Cause of the WTC Destruction? By Barry Ball, Barbara Ellis, and Russ Hallberg –Portland 9/11 Legislative Alliance 23 Jun 2009 This is the first in a four-part series stemming from our organization’s crafting and presenting a proposed bill in late 2008 to nine members of the U.S. House. It urges an independent investigation by national and international experts in science/technology to determine which of the 14 major theories about primary causal agents—fire and thermite to directed energy weapons–destroyed the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
Obama administration seeks to quash suit by 9/11 families By Barry Grey 26 Jun 2009 The Obama administration has intervened to quash a civil suit filed against Saudi Arabia by survivors and family members of victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The suit seeks to hold the Saudi royal family liable, charging that it provided financial and other support to Al Qaeda and was thereby complicit in the hijack bombings that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York and Washington DC.
Saudi royals funded 9/11: Lawyers 24 Jun 2009 Lawyers representing the families of the 9/11 victims, expose evidence allegedly proving the Saudi royal family’s financial support for al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. The lawyers provided The New York Times with excerpts of the material they had amassed by putting together the pieces from leaking American intelligence documents among other things, the daily reported on Tuesday. The evidence recounts how the Saudi royalty would use middlemen and financial supply routes to bankroll militants based in Afghanistan and Bosnia. The family, which had strong ties with the Bush administration, is also suspected of having reinforced the militancy otherwise and enlisted militant agents using intermediaries including the Saudi High Commission for Aid to Bosnia.
‘The Justice Department had the lawyers’ copies destroyed and now wants to prevent a judge from even looking at the material.’ Documents Back Saudi Link to Extremists 24 Jun 2009 Documents gathered by lawyers for the families of Sept. 11 victims provide new evidence of extensive financial support for Al Qaeda and other extremist groups by members of the Saudi royal family, but the material may never find its way into court because of legal and diplomatic obstacles. The Justice Department is siding with the Saudis in court last month in seeking to kill further legal action. Adding to the intrigue, classified American intelligence documents related to Saudi finances were leaked anonymously to lawyers for the families.
D.C. Crash Kills General Who Scrambled Jets on 9/11 24 Jun 2009 David F. Wherley Jr., the head of the Washington National Guard who scrambled jets over the city during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, was among those killed in the worst commuter train crash in the city’s history, officials said. Wherley’s wife, Ann, was also among the nine people killed when a train plowed into the rear of a stopped train during rush hour on June 22, Quintin Peterson, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department, said in a telephone interview. Wherley was commander of the 113th Fighter Wing at Andrews Air Force base in Maryland during the September 2001 terrorist attacks and sent up aircraft with orders to protect the White House and the Capitol, according to the 9/11 Commission report.
Saudi royals funded 9/11: Lawyers 24 Jun 2009 Lawyers representing the families of the 9/11 victims, expose evidence allegedly proving the Saudi royal family’s financial support for al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh]. The lawyers provided The New York Times with excerpts of the material they had amassed by putting together the pieces from leaking American intelligence documents among other things, the daily reported on Tuesday.
Amy Goodman breezes by the story of the century (Radio Du Jour) 14 Oct 2008 Amy Goodman talks with James Bamford, an American bestselling author and journalist who writes about United States intelligence agencies, and he drops a bomb shell (which doesn’t seem to warrant a follow-up question from Ms Goodman) about how the 9/11 plotters set-up shop within eye site (sans trees – 6.1 miles) of NSA Headquarters, worked out at the nearby Gold’s Gym, shopped at the nearby Safeway and ate at the same restaurants as NSA employees. [Yup, as hirelings of the US government, they ate and shopped in the same establishments as their employers.]
9/11 Commission Memo: ‘Executive Branch Minders’ Intimidation of Witnesses’ Posted by HistoryCommons 14 Mar 2009 A memo from the 9/11 Commission’s team 2 about the intimidation of witnesses. The memo complains that: Minders “answer[ed] questions directed at witnesses;” Minders acted as “monitors, reporting to their respective agencies on Commission staffs lines of inquiry and witnesses’ verbatim responses.” The staff thought this “conveys to witnesses that their superiors will review their statements and may engage in retribution;” and Minders “positioned themselves physically and have conducted themselves in a manner that we believe intimidates witnesses from giving full and candid responses to our questions.”
‘Lucky Larry’ still makes a killing on the 9/11 terror attacks: Dream job: $21.5M – to do nothing at all –Port Authority paying Larry Silverstein $21.5 million but has yet to seek ‘development’ tips 14 Apr 2009 The Port Authority is paying Larry Silverstein $21.5 million to develop the Freedom Tower – even though he has absolutely no role in building the 1,776-foot icon, the Daily News has learned. More than two years after the builder lost control of the planned 102-story tower at Ground Zero, he is collecting $500,000 monthly “development fees” – and the checks will keep flowing until mid-2010, documents show. The giveaway – $15.25 million so far and an additional $6.25 million in the pipeline – is costing bridge and tunnel commuters the equivalent of 2.7 million George Washington Bridge tolls or 12.3 million PATH fares.
Dutch TV show exonerates Osama bin Laden –‘Devil’s Advocate’ jury finds no proof he was behind Sept. 11 09 Apr 2009 Dutch TV jury has found Osama bin Laden not guilty of the Sept. 11 attacks. In the conclusion Wednesday night to the show “Devil’s Advocate” on Dutch public broadcaster Nederland 2, the jury of two men and three women, along with the studio audience, ruled there was no proof bin Laden was the mastermind behind the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001. Defense attorney Gerard Spong was able to convince the jury that bin Laden’s connection to Sept. 11 was a product of “Western propaganda.” The jury also ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove bin Laden was the real head of terrorist network al-Qaida.
Traces of explosives in 9/11 dust, scientists say 06 Apr 2009 Tiny red and gray chips found in the dust from the collapse of the World Trade Center contain highly explosive materials — proof, according to a former BYU professor, that 9/11 is still a sinister mystery. Physicist Steven E. Jones, who retired from Brigham Young University in 2006, is one of nine authors on a paper published last week in the online, peer-reviewed Open Chemical Physics Journal. For several years, Jones has theorized that pre-positioned explosives, not fires from jet fuel, caused the rapid, symmetrical collapse of the two World Trade Center buildings, plus the collapse of a third building, WTC-7.
Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe By Reprehensor 04 Apr 2009 From Dr. Steven Jones: Formally published in a peer-reviewed Chemical Physics journal, today: “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen. The paper ends with this sentence: “Based on these observations, we conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and is a highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material.” In short, the paper explodes the official story that “no evidence” exists for explosive/pyrotechnic materials in the WTC buildings.
‘The Defence Minister had strong objections to the material, so Aymeric had to go.’ French professor sacked over 9/11 ‘conspiracy’ theory 01 Mar 2009 An academic in France has been sacked by the Ministry of Defence after questioning the official version of events [lies] surrounding the 9/11 attacks. He now reportedly plans to sue the government. Aymeric Chauprade lost his job allegedly over the introduction to his latest book about political crises around the world, and more specifically, that the 9/11 attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. were an orchestrated “American-Israeli conspiracy”. The Defence Minister had strong objections to the material, so Aymeric had to go.
[CID: Chauprade lodges a complaint against Morin for “discrimination” before the court of Justice of the Republic] CID: Chauprade porte plainte contre Morin pour “discrimination” devant la Cour de Justice de la République 13 Feb 2009 Il avait promis de “la bagarre”, nous y sommes. Aymeric Chauprade, qui a été congédié le 5 février du Collège interarmées de Défense à la suite de la parution d’un texte mettant en doute ce qu’il appelle la “version officielle” des attentats du 11 septembre, estime que le ministre de la Défense Hervé Morin “a commis un acte de discrimination au sens des dispositions des articles 225-1 et 225-2 du Code Pénal qui punit de trois ans de prison le fait de sanctionner autrui pour ses idées”. Son avocat, Maître Antoine Beauquier va saisir la Cour de Justice de la République pour obtenir des sanctions à l’encontre du ministre de la Défense.
‘One of Mr. Jarrah’s cousins, Ziad al-Jarrah, was among the 19 hijackers who carried out the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.’ Lebanese in Shock Over Arrest of an Accused Spy 19 Feb 2009 For 25 years, Ali al-Jarrah managed to live on both sides of the bitterest divide running through this region. To friends and neighbors, he was an earnest supporter of the Palestinian cause… To Israel, he appears to have been a valued spy, sending reports and taking clandestine photographs of Palestinian groups and Hezbollah since 1983. At the start of the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, Israeli officials called Mr. Jarrah to reassure him that his village would be spared and that he should stay at home, investigators said.
‘Does fire have different properties in China compared to the US?’ Fire Consumes WTC 7-Size Skyscraper, Building Does Not Collapse By Paul Joseph Watson 09 Feb 2009 A fierce fire consumed all 44 floors of a skyscraper in Beijing today, shooting 30 foot flames into the air, but unlike the similarly-sized 47-story WTC 7, which suffered limited fires across just eight floors, the building in China did not collapse… Compare images of WTC 7 with those of the skyscraper fire in Beijing. Note that the Beijing skyscraper appears to be leaning due to the unorthodox design of the building – it did not suffer any kind of collapse. How do the debunkers explain away this one? How come NIST’s newly invented “phenomenon” of “thermal expansion” didn’t put paid to the skyscraper in Beijing? Does fire have different properties in China compared to the U.S.?
Senior Corporate Executives Warned to Leave N.Y. on 9/11: Source By Jeremy R. Hammond 03 Nov 2008 Foreign Policy Journal has learned that senior executives of a major U.S. international corporation may have been warned to leave New York on September 11, 2001. According to an inside source, one of the senior executives of the corporation told him beforehand that “something big” was going to occur and so other corporate executives would be travelling out of New York. The source, who spoke to the Journal on the condition of anonymity, worked at a European branch of the media giant Warner Bros.
WeAreChangeLA ‘debriefs’ former CIA Case Officer Robert Baer about apparent Mossad, White House 9/11 foreknowledge By Shumonik 20 Oct 2008 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. Bob: The chances of Bin Laden being dead are very high… Jeremy: But he didn’t do 9/11 though. Bob: Well, let’s put it this way, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind… Jeremy: No. Bob: …said he wasn’t working for Bin Laden, so…
Anthrax Links to 9-11 By Barbara Honegger 25 Sep 2008 Superweaponizing anthrax was one of Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld’s top priorities. Two days before 9/11, on Sept. 9, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) held a rare press conference in which it revealed that on his first day as Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld ordered the DIA to take Project Jefferson, a secret and illegal anthrax weaponization program (probably using the Ames strain contained in the anthrax letters) to the next level of lethality and that it had achieved ‘success’ earlier that month in a classified field test. The mainstream press reported this event on Sept. 10.
“10-5 the message about the remote controlled plane!” –Deconstructing a False-Flag Operation By Culhavoc 01 Jul 2005 A while back I came upon a recording of NYPD radio which was labeled as if it had taken place on 9/11. I never got around to listening to the recording… until now. After cleaning up the audio (normalization and noise reduction) I made a transcript of the transmissions… There are three key pieces of information in this ~3 minute segment. The first major piece is the statement “10-5 the message about the remote controlled plane”. (10-5 is “10 code” for “repeat message”) The remote controlled plane statement is interesting since this modus operandi is detailed in Operation Northwoods, a 1962 plan by the Joint Chiefs to carry out terror attacks on American soil to be used as a pretext to invade Cuba.
Who was involved in 9/11? 11 Sep 2008 Documentary reveals shocking facts On the anniversary of 9/11, an Italian-produced documentary called ZERO, investigating the tragedy, is opening in Russia. The authors believe that the U.S. official version of events surrounding the attacks can’t be true.
Filmmaker Urges International Tribunal to Probe 9/11 08 Sep 2008 Italian film-maker Giulietto Chiesa, who was in Berlin for a screening of his documentary which questions the official US version of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has called for an international tribunal to probe events.
Olbermann: Republicans have hijacked 9/11 –An American tragedy made into a political commodity By Keith Olbermann 10 Sep 2008 …9/11 has become a brand name. A Republican campaign slogan. Propaganda of the lowest form. 9/11 has become 9/11 with a trademark logo. 9/11 (TM) has sustained a president who long ago should have been dismissed, or impeached. It has kept him and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office without — literally — any visible means of support. 9/11 (TM) has made possible the greatest sleight-of-hand in our nation’s history.
Emergency Official Witnessed Dead Bodies In WTC 7 By Paul Joseph Watson 23 Jun 2008 Exclusive video of emergency official Barry Jennings discussing explosions inside WTC 7 before either of the twin towers had collapsed and having to step over dead bodies of victims as he attempted to vacate the building has been released for the first time… Jennings’ eyewitness report of explosions inside WTC 7 before the towers had collapsed as well as dead bodies inside the building completely contradicts the official story, which maintains that there were no fatalities inside Building 7.
Government says FBI agents can’t testify about 9/11 19 Jun 2008 Government lawyers say the ongoing investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks could be compromised if the airline industry is allowed to seek more information from the FBI to defend itself against lawsuits brought by terrorism victims. In papers filed late Tuesday, the government urged a judge to block aviation companies from interviewing five FBI employees who the companies say will help them prove the government withheld key information before the 2001 attacks.
‘So what did hit the Pentagon? What hit it? Where is it? What’s going on?’ Lawmaker takes 9/11 doubts global 17 Jun 2008 In January 2008 Diet member Yukihisa Fujita, a member of the Democratic Party of Japan, asked the Japanese Parliament and Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda to explain gaping holes in the official 9/11 story that various groups claim to have exposed… Fujita urges the Bush administration to put the issue to rest simply by showing videos that show the plane that hit the Pentagon. Instead, only a few grainy images have been released to the public. More disconcertingly, many videos taken by surrounding businesses were confiscated by the FBI immediately after the Pentagon explosion. The Pennsylvania crash, like the Pentagon explosion, also yielded virtually no recognizable plane parts at the crash site… The official story — that the plane “vaporized” when it hit the ground — is inconsistent with the evidence left by every other plane crash in the history of aviation.
USA Military Officers Challenge Official Account of September 11 22 May 2008 Twenty-five former U.S. military officers have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and called for a new investigation. They include former commander of U.S. Army Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Col. Ronald D. Ray, two former staff members of the Director of the National Security Agency; Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, PhD, and Major John M. Newman, PhD, and many others. “A lot of these pieces of information, taken together, prove that the official story, the official conspiracy theory of 9/11 is a bunch of hogwash. It’s impossible,” said Lt. Col. Robert Bowman, PhD, U.S. Air Force (ret). With doctoral degrees in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering, Col. Bowman served as Director of Advanced Space Programs Development under Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.
George W Bush Authorized 911 Attacks, Says Government Insider 20 May 2008 Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff. Stanley Hilton was a senior advisor to Sen Bob Dole (R) and has personally known Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz for decades. The following is from his latest visit to Alex Jones’ radio show. The Bush Junta Unmasked “This (9/11) was all planned. This was a government-ordered operation. Bush personally signed the order. He personally authorized the attacks. He is guilty of treason and mass murder.” –Stanley Hilton – Alex Jones interview of Stanley Hilton, attorney for 911 taxpayers’ lawsuit.
Aviation companies blame FBI, CIA and terrorists for 9/11 01 May 2008 Aviation companies sued by the families of Sept. 11 victims for failing to safeguard air travel are in turn blaming federal investigators — arguing the Federal Aviation Administration was not alerted that al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] was poised to launch terrorist attacks. In court documents filed this week in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, aviation companies are seeking to force five FBI employees to provide testimony that may help defend against claims the companies share blame in the attacks. “The aviation parties anticipate that the FBI witnesses’ testimony will demonstrate that the FBI had information before Sept. 11 indicating that al-Qaida may have been about to launch terrorist attacks on civil aviation, which it did not timely pass along to the Federal Aviation Administration,” lawyers wrote.
9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda By Jim Fetzer 22 Apr 2008 During a “Freedom Rally” in recognition of Ron Paul, (R-TX) and in opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth explained why the anti-war movement and the 9/11 truth movement should be more closely linked, since exposing the truth about 9/11 destroys the justification for those wars.
Outspoken Arizona Senator Questions 9/11 Official Version of Events –Republican attacked for expressing opinion on September 11th cover-up By Steve Watson 25 Apr 2008 State Sen. Karen Johnson, R-Mesa, has come under fierce criticism for going on record with her doubts over the government’s version of events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Following a vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee on Arizona’s 9/11 Memorial, Johnson told Capitol reporters “There are many of us that believe there’s been a cover-up.” Details of Johnson’s comments come in an vicious hit piece article in the Arizona Republic entitled ‘Drinking the 9/11 Kool-Aid.’
U.N. Official Calls for Study of Neocons’ Role in 9/11 10 Apr 2008 A new U.N. Human Rights Council official assigned to monitor Israel [Richard Falk, Milbank professor of international law emeritus at Princeton University] is calling for an official commission to study the role neoconservatives may have played in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The narrative that the attacks from 2001 were a “false flag” operation is a recurring theme in the literature challenging the consensus conspiracy theory that 19 al-Qaeda hijackers flew commercial jets into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. False flag refers to espionage or covert actions taken by one government made to seem like the work of another. The false flag thesis has it that the Bush administration is somehow responsible for the September 11 attacks as a pretext for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. [And so much more!]
The 9/11 Stand Down in 2 Minutes 27 Mar 2008 NORAD, responsible for intercepting errant aircraft over the U.S., has a standard operating procedure for scrambling planes for interception which takes less than 15 minutes. They did this successfully (on time) 129 times in 2000 and 67 times between September 2000 and June 2001. Yet, on September 11th, they failed to do their job 4 times in a single day.
Lucky Larry wants $12.3 billion more for 9/11 By Jerry Mazza 03 Apr 2008 Like the proverbial bad penny, Lucky Larry Silverstein keeps popping up. He’s back and he’s bad again. Not content with the nearly $4.6 billion in insurance payments he received to cover his losses at the World Trade Center, he is now seeking $12.3 billion in damages from the airlines and airport security companies for the 9/11 attack in a suit filed in 2004.
9/11: Where Barack Obama and Condi Rice Sound Alarmingly Alike By Kristen Breitweiser 03 Apr 2008 Barack Obama appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball last night and was asked about the way he would handle the 3 a.m. phone call… OBAMA: ‘Oh, well, the–I don’t think anybody predicted 9/11. And, so, we don’t know what kinds of circumstances are going to come up.’ Yup. That’s right, Barack Obama glibly stated that he didn’t “think anybody predicted 9/11.” Some thoughts: 1. Maybe Obama needs a tutorial from former Vice Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, Lee Hamilton, who just endorsed him yesterday. Heck, even Hamilton knows and has to acknowledge that 9/11 was predictable… Lee Hamilton is largely responsible for the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report being a total whitewash.
Obama Wins Backing of 9/11 Omission Co-Chairman Lee Hamilton 02 Apr 2008 Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama won the support of one of his party’s top foreign policy figures, Lee Hamilton, a former U.S. House member from Indiana, where an important primary vote occurs May 6. Hamilton, who co-chaired the commission that ‘investigated’ the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and headed the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, said he was impressed by Obama’s approach to national security and foreign policy.

Government-Funded Investigators Accused of WTC Cover-Up –American Society of Civil Engineers lied about inability of skyscrapers to withstand airliner impacts By Paul Joseph Watson Mar 26 2008 The American Society of Civil Engineers – an organization that was funded by FEMA to investigate the collapse of the twin towers on 9/11 – has been accused of engaging in a cover-up to protect the government, with critics charging the organization falsified conclusions that skyscrapers could not withstand getting hit by airplanes.
Engineer society accused of cover-ups in Katrina, WTC probes 25 Mar 2008 The professional organization for engineers who build the nation’s roads, dams and bridges has been accused by fellow engineers of covering up catastrophic design flaws while investigating national disasters. After the [Bush] 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the levee failures caused by Hurricane Katrina [explosives] in 2005, the federal government paid the American Society of Civil Engineers to investigate what went wrong. Critics now accuse the group of covering up engineering mistakes, downplaying the need to alter building standards, and using the investigations to protect engineers and government agencies from lawsuits.
‘9/11 attacks made up,’ says French best actress Oscar-winner 03 Mar 2008 Actress Marion Cotillard sparked a political row yesterday after accusing America of fabricating the 9/11 attacks. “I think we’re lied to about a number of things,” Cotillard said, singling out the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center as an example of the US making up horror stories for political ends.
Algerian accused of training 9/11 pilots can claim millions in damages 14 Feb 2008 An Algerian man who was wrongly accused of training five of the 9/11 ‘hijackers’ today won the right to claim millions of pounds in compensation. Lotfi Raissi, who lives in Chiswick, was held in jail for four and a half months shortly after the New York attacks as the US authorities tried to extradite him for questioning over his alleged terrorist links. He was freed after a judge ruled there was no evidence to support the allegations, despite objections from prosecutors acting on behalf of the American government.
9/11 inquiry head ‘tried to shield George Bush’ 05 Feb 2008 The head of the commission that investigated the Sept 11 terrorist attacks had closer ties to the White House than he admitted and tried to limit the Bush regime’s responsibility for the incident, a book claims. Philip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission’s executive director, allegedly attempted to intimidate staff to avoid findings that would be damaging to President [sic] George W Bush, who was running for re-[s]election, and Condoleezza Rice, his then National Security Adviser.
Commission Confidential By Max Holland 30 Jan 2008 In a revelation bound to cast a pall over the 9/11 Commission, Philip Shenon will report in a forthcoming book that the panel’s executive director, Philip Zelikow, engaged in “surreptitious” communications with presidential adviser Karl Rove and other Bush administration officials during the commission’s 20-month investigation into the 9/11 attacks. Shenon, who led The New York Times’ coverage of the 9/11 panel, reveals the Zelikow-Rove connection in a new book entitled The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation, to be published next month…
Japanese Senator Questions 9/11 By Alan Miller 12 Jan 2008 On January 11th 2008, Fujita Yukihisa made a 30 minute presentation at the House of Councillors (equivalent to the U.S. Senate). He directly questioned the official version of 9/11 in a session with Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda Yasuo and members of his Cabinet. Fujita is a member of the opposition party, Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ). He was elected to the House of Councillors in 2007.
Transcript of Japanese Parliamentary discussion of 911 –Transcript of testimony in the Japanese Parliament, broadcast live nationwide on NHK television. The Member of Parliament talking about 911 is Yukihisa Fujita from the Democratic Party of Japan. Yukihisa Fujita: Just before the 911 attacks, i.e., on September 6th, 7th and 8th, there were put options put out on the stocks of the two airlines United and American that were hit by hijackers. There were also put options on Merrill Lynch, one of the biggest WTC tenants. In other words, somebody had insider information and made a fortune selling put options of these stocks. The head of Germany’s Bundesbank at the time, who is equivalent to the Governor of the Bank of Japan, said there are lots of facts to prove the people involved in the terror attacks profited from insider information. He said there was lots of suspicious trading involving financial companies, etc., prior to the attacks. The had of the Bundesbank was willing to say this much. I would like to ask the Finance Minster about these put options. Did the government of Japan know about this, and what do you think about this?
9/11 and the incompetence excuse: Could a bunch of sociopathic screw-ups really pull off the crime of the century? By Warren Pease 09 Jan 2008 Many who deny government complicity in 9/11/01 maintain that some of the best evidence against official involvement in the crime of the century lies in the Bush administration’s unbroken record of sheer incompetence, an argument bolstered by the perception that key members of the administration, notably The Commander Guy, spent that entire day running around like headless chickens. On the contrary, they did no such thing. Rather, the administration was highly competent and enormously successful that day — they just had different criteria for success than would sane people. And they’ve been highly competent ever since.

CIA obstructed 9/11 investigators: report 22 Dec 2007 The CIA obstructed an official US investigation into the September 11 attacks by withholding tapes of interrogations of ‘Al-Qaeda’ operatives, according to former investigators quoted in a report on Saturday.
9/11 Panel Study Finds That C.I.A. Withheld Tapes 22 Dec 2007 A review of classified documents by former members of the Sept. 11 commission shows that the panel made repeated and detailed requests to the Central Intelligence Agency in 2003 and 2004 for documents and other information about the interrogation of operatives of ‘Al Qaeda,’ and were told by a top C.I.A. official that the agency had “produced or made available for review” everything that had been requested. In interviews this week, the two chairmen of the commission, Lee H. Hamilton and Thomas H. Kean, said their reading of the report had convinced them that the agency had made a conscious decision to impede the Sept. 11 commission’s inquiry.
French journalist investigated over intelligence leaks 10 Dec 2007 The Committee to Protect Journalists is concerned about a criminal investigation launched by French authorities against Guillaume Dasquié, a reporter for the daily Le Monde, on accusations of publishing state secrets related to the 9/11 ‘hijackings.’
French Author Accused of Outing 9/11 Secrets 08 Dec 2007 A French anti-terrorist judge has filed preliminary charges against an investigative journalist and author accused of publishing defense secrets, judicial officials said Friday. Authorities are investigating articles by Guillaume Dasquie, including one that reported French intelligence had suspected al-Qaida [al-CIAduh] of planning a plane hijacking nine months before the Sept. 11 attacks. On Thursday, investigating judge Philippe Coirre, who handles anti-terrorist [?] cases, filed preliminary charges, the officials said. The charges are for “possessing secret defense documents” and “divulging secret defense documents or intelligence,” the officials said. One of two publications under investigation is an April article by Dasquie published in Le Monde called “Sept. 11: The French Had Long Known,” which included excerpts of confidential documents from the DGSE intelligence agency. One note, dated Jan. 5, 2001, said al-Qaida was plotting a hijacking and listed potential airline targets, including the two carriers, United and American, that were targeted in the Sept. 11 attacks later that year.

What caused it? What conditions led to it?” he said. “Who truly was involved? Who was really involved and put it all together?”
Seven CIA Veterans Challenge 9/11 Commission Report –Account of 9/11 a “Joke” and a “Cover-up” By Alan Miller Official 23 Sep 2007 Seven CIA veterans have severely criticized the official account of 9/11 and have called for a new investigation. “I think at simplest terms, there’s a cover-up. The 9/11 Report is a joke,” said Raymond McGovern, 27-year veteran of the CIA, who chaired National Intelligence Estimates during the seventies.
Pentagon censors 9/11 suspect’s tape 13 Sep 2007 The Pentagon has censored an audio tape of the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks speaking at a military hearing — cutting out Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s explanation for why Islamic militants waged jihad against the United States.

New bin Laden video identifies 9/11 hijacker BBC revealed ‘alive and well’ on 23 Sept. 2001 by Lori Price 11 Sep 2007 New bin Laden video surfaces (CNN) 11 Sep 2007 A new video purportedly featuring an introduction from al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] leader Osama bin Laden appeared on the Internet Tuesday, the sixth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington. In the video’s introduction, a voice identified as bin Laden’s praises 9/11 hijacker Waleed al-Shehri, from Saudi Arabia. He sat in seat 2B on American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into World Trade Center’s north tower. [LOL! See: Hijack ‘suspects’ alive and well (BBC) 23 Sep 2001 Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has turned up alive and well. The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now in doubt. Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September. His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world. He told journalists there that he had nothing to do with the attacks on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco when they happened.
U.S. Navy ‘Top Gun’ Pilot Questions 9/11 By Alan Miller 05 Sep 2007 U.S. Navy ‘Top Gun’ pilot, Commander Ralph Kolstad, started questioning the official account of 9/11 within days of the event… Commander Kolstad is especially critical of the account of American Airlines Flight 77 that allegedly crashed into the Pentagon. He says, “At the Pentagon, the pilot of the Boeing 757 did quite a feat of flying. I have 6,000 hours of flight time in Boeing 757’s and 767’s and I could not have flown it the way the flight path was described…” Regarding the alleged impact site of United Airlines Flight 93 near Shanksville, PA, he asks, “Where is any of the wreckage? Of all the pictures I have seen, there is only a hole! Where is any piece of a crashed airplane? Why was the area cordoned off, and no inspection allowed by the normal accident personnel? Where is any evidence at all?”
Even I question the ‘truth’ about 9/11 By Robert Fisk 25 Aug 2007 I am increasingly troubled at the inconsistencies in the official narrative of 9/11. It’s not just the obvious non sequiturs: where are the aircraft parts (engines, etc) from the attack on the Pentagon? Why have the officials involved in the United 93 flight (which crashed in Pennsylvania) been muzzled? Why did flight 93’s debris spread over miles when it was supposed to have crashed in one piece in a field? …I am talking about scientific issues… What about the third tower – the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or the Salmon Brothers Building) – which collapsed in 6.6 seconds in its own footprint at 5.20pm on 11 September? Why did it so neatly fall to the ground when no aircraft had hit it? …Journalistically, there were many odd things about 9/11.
Mounting Evidence of 9/11 Video Fakery: New proof of media duplicity, Scholars claim By James Fetzer 28 Jul 2007 New studies of media coverage of the attacks on the Twin Towers have raised serious questions about the integrity of television broadcasts over CNN, CBS and FOX NEWS, according to Scholars for 9/11 Truth, a non-partisan society of students, experts, and scholars.
GOP welcomes new 9/11: Reports lay groundwork for attack, Scholars say By James Fetzer 16 Jul 2007 A new report summarizes evidence suggesting that intelligence agencies in collaboration with their media assets are in the process of preparing the American people for a new 9/11-style attack. James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, has been taken aback. “This summary from MUJCA-NET forces us to confront the awful prospect that the forces that brought us a fake attack on 9/11 are about to reprise their performance,” he stated. “My fear is this will be done on a scale of magnitude greater, involving 30,000 or even 300,000 deaths.”
Rep. compares Bush to Hitler, 9/11 attacks to Reichstag fire 15 Jul 2007 America’s first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President [sic] George W Bush to Adolf Hitler and hinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks. Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. “It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that,” Mr Ellison said. “After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.” To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because “you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box – dismiss you”.
Christine Boutin rattrapée par ses propos controversés sur le 11-Septembre 05 Jul 2007 Christine Boutin rendant George Bush responsable des attentats du 11-Septembre? Pour le collectif ReOpen911, pas de doute. Sur son site Internet, qui exhume une vidéo de novembre 2006, les tenants de la théorie “conspirationniste” des attentats de New York et Washington vont plus loin, affirmant: “Le gouvernement français, représenté par Christine Boutin, envisage la responsabilité de G.

NIST exploring 9/11 conspiracy theory for WTC-7: New witness confirms Scholars previous findings By James Fetzer 02 Jul 2007 The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) appears to be moving in the direction of a “conspiracy theory” about the destruction of WTC-7 on 9/11 just as a new witness has emerged reporting extensive destruction inside the building many hours before it would be demolished. According to James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, these turns of events provide further confirmation for the conclusion that WTC-7 was brought down by a controlled demolition at 5:20 PM/ET.
Purdue 9/11 simulation exposed as fraud: Media covers up hoax and conceals crimes By James Fetzer 27 Jun 2007 A computer animation by engineers and computer scientists at Purdue University has been exposed as a fraud by a new member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth. James Fetzer, who founded the society, received a study from Nick Irving, replying to his invitation to submit an essay on the Purdue simulation, which can be found [here]. “Nick pointed out that the model was based upon false data about the weakening point of steel and the temperature of jet fuel based fires. He proved that fireproofing was irrelevant because the fires never reached the weakening point of steel. But most importantly of all,” Fetzer observed, “he noticed that the simulation does not even model the ‘collapse’ and cannot have shown that these fires caused one.”
New study from Pilots for 9/11 Truth: No Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon 21 Jun 2007 (PRWEB) Pilots for 9/11 Truth obtained black box data from the government under the Freedom of Information Act for AA Flight 77, which The 9/11 Report claims hit the Pentagon. Analysis of the data contradicts the official account in direction, approach, and altitude. The plane was too high to hit lamp posts and would have flown over the Pentagon, not impacted with its ground floor. This result confirms and strengthens the previous findings of Scholars for 9/11 Truth that no Boeing 757 hit the building.
Mobile phones may soon be used on planes 22 June 2007 One of the last telephone-free environments on the planet, the airplane, is about to be connected, allowing travellers to make mobile phone calls at high altitude. Requests to switch off cellphones and fasten seatbelts are a familiar part of the take-off routine for airline passengers, but a European company has found a way to make dialling safe and link up people from above the clouds. [*Apparently,* the passengers aboard ‘hijacked’ United Airlines Flight 93 utilized a time machine, in order to make their calls.

Did Sept. 11 mastermind who ‘confessed’ in Guantanamo kangaroo court die in 2002? A chilling inheritance of terror By Syed Saleem Shahzad 30 Oct 2002 Ever since the frenzied shootout last month on September 11 in Karachi there have been doubts over whether Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed head of al-Qaeda’s military committee, died in the police raid on his apartment… Now it has emerged that Kuwaiti national Khalid Shaikh Mohammed did indeed perish in the raid, but his wife and child were taken from the apartment and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in whose hands they remain.

Finally – KSM Connects the Dots By John Albanese 15 Mar 2007 I, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, being of sound mind and body, un-coerced through torture, and fully enjoying the legal representation and due process afforded me under the constitution of the United States of America, hereby confess to the following crimes associated with 9/11: I confess that I removed military-grade anthrax from the army’s Ft. Detrick, MD laboratories, and mailed it to liberal democrats in Congress who were threatening to slow down passage of the Patriot Act.

CNN, BBC 24 Reports Conclusively Prove Media Prior Knowledge and False-Start Scripting of Building 7 Controlled Demolition By Aaron Dykes and Alex Jones 27 Feb 2007 It has now been discovered that BBC 24 also reported the Building 7 collapse before it fell. Furthermore, CNN’s Aaron Brown reported that Building 7 “has collapsed or is collapsing” over an hour before it fell. These clips both reinforce the shocking, newly discovered BBC coverage wherein Jane Standley reports the collapse early– with the building still standing behind her.
Oops! Video: BBC was half an hour too early reporting on WTC collapse By thedreadzone 26 Feb 2007 ‘On September 11th 2001, BBC World reported at 4:57pm Eastern Time that the Salomon Brothers Building (more commonly known as WTC7 or World Trade Building 7) had collapsed.

NYPD Officer Heard Building 7 Bombs –‘The whole time you’re hearing boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. I think I know an explosion when I hear it’ By Paul Joseph Watson 10 Feb 2007 Following our reports this week about three different ground zero rescue workers who all testified that they were told Building 7 was to be brought down, yet more revealing testimony has come to light – this time from a former NYPD officer and first responder, who states that he clearly heard bombs tear down Building 7 as he ran away from its collapse.
An explosion of disbelief – fresh doubts over 9/11 09 Feb 2007 …[O]n a fateful September morning in 2001, did America fabricate an outrage against civilians to fool the world and provide a pretext for war on Al Qaeda and Iraq? Why were no military aircraft scrambled in time to head off the attacks? Was the collapse of the Twin Towers caused by a careful use of explosives? How could a rookie pilot – as one of the terrorists was – fly a Boeing 757 aircraft so precisely into the Pentagon? And who made millions of dollars by accurately betting that shares in United and American Airlines, owners of the four doomed aircraft, were going to fall on 9/11 as they duly did? An extremely high volume of bets on the price of shares dropping were placed on these two airline companies, and only these two. In the three days prior to the catastrophe, trade in their shares went up 1,200 per cent.
Ground Zero EMT: We Were Told Building 7 Was to Be “Pulled” –New Jersey Emergency Medical Technician asked “how could someone have rigged all these explosives?” before towers collapsed, support columns had been blown out By Paul Joseph Watson 08 Feb 2007 A New Jersey EMT has gone public on how emergency workers were told that Building 7 was going to be “pulled,” before a 20 second demolition countdown broadcast over radio preceded its collapse. The ground zero rescue worker also blows the whistle on how he witnessed multiple underground support columns of the WTC towers that had been severed before the buildings imploded.
Dig Yields Surprising Find at Ground Zero 01 Feb 2007 Large steel columns from the fallen twin towers have been found beneath a service road being excavated at ground zero in the search for long-buried Sept. 11 remains, officials said Wednesday. The surprising discovery of World Trade Center steel in the past week raises more questions about what was left at ground zero in the cleanup after the 2001 attacks and how the service road was created in the first place.
What do the Statue of Liberty and WTC Towers have in common? By Karl W. B. Schwarz 29 Dec 2006 In 1989 – there were plans to erect scaffolding and disassemble the WTC towers and rebuild them. Cost projection was around $5.6 billion. One of the architects shows up to work one day and the MIB’s were there – had confiscated all of the plans, specs, details, etc for WTC. They even confiscated their office cubicles and had tape on the floor outlining where they went. Reason – the exterior cast aluminum WTC panels had been directly connected to the steel superstructure of the building, thus causing galvanic corrosion. In short, the “life cycle” of the WTC was not 200 – 300 years, more like 30 years or so… There was a 1989 meeting and the folks at the architectural firm Emory Roth, the project architect that took over after the design architects completed the conceptual drawings that had their office, records, plans and specs seized – were told that the $5.6 billion “take it down, rebuild it” project was cancelled and in about “10-12 years” they would “blow it up and start over”.
Senators Nix Pre-9/11 Hijacker ID Theory 26 Dec 2006 A lengthy Senate investigation has debunked charges by a Republican congressman [Curt Weldon, PA], that military analysts identified Mohamed Atta and other Sept. 11 hijackers before the attacks, according to a committee aide familiar with the report.
Boston Air Traffic Controller Says 9/11 An Inside Job –Knew people in FAA on day of hijackings who said intercept procedures should have been enacted as normal By Paul Joseph Watson 14 Dec 2006 A former Boston Center air traffic controller has gone public on his assertion that 9/11 was an inside job and that Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon tracked three of the four flights from the point of their hijacking to hitting their targets. In an astounding telephone interview, Robin Hordon claims air traffic controllers have been ignored or silenced to protect the true perpetrators of 9/11. [See: Interview w/ former Boston Center Air Traffic Controller regarding 9/11 (Google video).]
Ex-employee says FAA warned before 9/11 24 Nov 2006 From 1995 to 2001, Bogdan Dzakovic served as a team leader on the Federal Aviation Administration’s Red Team. Set up by Congress to help the FAA think like terrorists, the elite squad tested airport security systems… The team repeatedly warned the FAA of the potential for security breaches and hijackings but was told to cover up its findings, Dzakovic says.

O’Reilly Equates 9/11 Scholars With Terrorists –Threatens Truth Professors With FBI Investigation By Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones 14 Oct 2006 During Professor Jim Fetzer’s appearance on The O’Reilly Factor Thursday night, O’Reilly equated the 9/11 Scholars with terrorists and threw his weight behind a move to have them being investigated by the FBI, in a similar vein to a previous case in which his false charges led to the arrest of another professor and charges of supporting terrorism which were later dismissed. “I’d put the FBI on you and that nutty Barrett and find out what the hell you guys are up to,” salivates O’Reilly, making reference to Sammy Al-Arian, a former professor at USF who was charged and later acquitted…
O’Reilly Sicks FBI on Fetzer, Barrett By Kurt Nimmo 13 Oct 2006 Bill O’Reilly, the scurrilous “phone sex” deviant and prime time bully, wants nine eleven researchers and investigators arrested—or, more accurately under the so-called detainee bill, disappeared into Gestapo torture dungeons—and presumably brought up on treason charges, marched before a secret military tribunal, and sent to the gallows… Not only did the reprehensible O’Reilly, who had the academic Dr. Sami al-Arian arrested and charged as a terrorist, slander [Jim] Fetzer and by extension anybody else who questions the government, he also demanded Fetzer be tailed by the FBI. “I’d put the FBI on you and that nutty [professor Kevin] Barrett and find out what the hell you guys are up to,” threatened O’Reilly…
O’Reilly Takes on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist! 13 Oct 2006 (Partial transcript from “The O’Reilly [O’Lie-y] Factor,” 12 October 2006) JIM FETZER, believes Bush orchestrated 9/11: Well, you are wrong, Bill, because you haven’t studied the case. We’ve created an organization consisting of experts and scholars, pilots, aeronautical engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers, physicists. We’ve been examining what the government’s been telling us. And, frankly, Bill, it’s a fantasy. None of the major claims made by the government can be sustained. We’ve been looking at this from every point of view.
Professor says U.S. gov’t behind 9/11 attacks 11 Oct 2006 An American professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who believes the U.S. government organized the Sept. 11 attacks has included his essay comparing President [sic] Bush to Adolf Hitler in a book of essays students are required to purchase for his course.
“Hitler had a good 20 to 30 IQ points on Bush, so comparing Bush to Hitler would in many ways be an insult to Hitler.” [Exactly.] –Kevin Barrett UW Instructor Compares Bush to Hitler 11 Oct 2006 A university instructor who came under scrutiny for arguing that the U.S. government orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks likens President [sic] Bush to Adolf Hitler in an essay his students are being required to buy for his course. The essay by Kevin Barrett, “Interpreting the Unspeakable: The Myth of 9/11,” is part of a book of essays by 15 authors called “9/11 and American Empire: Muslims, Jews, and Christians Speak Out.”

How the FBI protected Al Qaeda’s 9/11 Hijacking Trainer –New Revelations about Ali Mohamed By Dr. Peter Dale Scott 08 Oct 2006 As I say in our book, in 1993 Ali Mohamed had been detained by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada, when he inquired at an airport after an incoming al Qaeda terrorist who turned out to be carrying two forged Saudi passports. Mohamed immediately told the RCMP to make a phone call to the United States, and the call secured his release. We’ve since been told that it was Mohamed’s West coast FBI handler, John Zent, “who vouched for Ali and got him released.”
Police ‘exaggerated evidence’ against British 9/11 suspect 09 Oct 2006 Police and prosecutors are facing allegations that they misled a judge and grossly exaggerated evidence against the only man to be detained in Britain over September 11, The Times has learnt.
Atta’s Father Accuses Israel and U.S. of Planning 9/11 03 Oct 2006 Muhammad a-Sayed Atta, father of Muhammad Atta, one of the [alleged] terrorists who carried out the 9/11 fatal attacks, claims that recently published photographs of his son were “forged by the United States.” In an interview with Saudi newspaper Al Watan, Atta senior says, “the United States is who orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks and was assisted by Jewish planners. This was in order to cover up even greater disasters that were starting to be revealed.”
Rice Offered to Resign Following Bush’s 2004 Re-Selection 02 Oct 2006 Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says she offered to resign as President [sic] Bush’s National Security Adviser as part of a broader house-cleaning following the president’s re-selection in 2004. “I did tell the president at one point that I thought maybe all of us should go, because we had fought two wars and we … had [executed] the largest terrorist attack in American history,” Rice disclosed Sunday night while en route to the Mideast.
9/11: The Massive Ignorance of Matt Taibbi By James H. Fetzer, Ph.D. 30 Sep 2006 A lot of intellectual rubbish has been published about the 9/11 Truth movement, but none quite as reprehensible as Matt Taibbi, “The Low Post: I, Left Gatekeeper“, ROLLING STONE (26 September 2006). He begins with a blunder and ends with a travesty. He asserts that “9/11 Truth is the lowest form of conspiracy theory, because it doesn’t offer an affirmative theory of the crime.” But 9/11 Truth is dedicated to exposing falsehoods as well as revealing truths. If the government’s account of 9/11 were true, there would be no need for an “alternative theory”. We are critics of the official theory, which, in case Taibbi hasn’t noticed, is itself a conspiracy theory!
The Dollar$ & $en$e of 911 By Douglas Herman 18 Sep 2006 Who benefitted most by the New York Massacre? Millions were invested before the attack. Hundreds of millions were made the same day. Neither crime received much attention by the US government. Perhaps because friends of the US government stood to gain billions of dollars, in the following years… Remember those Put Options? “The identity of this person who had foreknowledge of the attack is known and this person’s identity is being protected by our government and this is a fact! Period, end of story,” reported Jesse Richard, editor of TVNewsLies.com.

Bin Laden’s superspy worked for the FBI, CIA and US Army 15 Sep 2006 Bin Laden’s spy in America, Ali Mohamed, manipulated American Intelligence from within the US, leading up to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This according to a National Geographic two-hour documentary [28 August] called “Triple Cross: Bin Laden’s Spy in America,” The documentary is said to reveal the extraordinary tale of Osama bin Laden’s brilliant intelligence agent who played a key role in al-Qaeda terror plots while “triple crossing” US officials before 9/11. Ali Mohamed, a radical ex-Egyptian Army officer worked for the CIA, FBI and US Army, and answered to Osama bin Laden. The burning question is: how did Mohamed survive inside the United States for more than 14 years as a spy for Egyptian Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda?

9/11 News and Links 11 Sep 2006 Citizens For Legitimate Government‘s compilation of 9/11-related news, commentary and links
Indications add up to government conspiracy By James Morgante 08 Sep 2006 …[A] 2000 paper titled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” Project for a New American Century, whose founding members were Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, argued for vast increases in military spending to assure American global dominance. Such a process, PNAC said, would take time absent “a catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor.”…The symmetry between the 9/11 attacks and U.S. policy goals is but the backdrop to the case for government complicity.

BYU places ‘9/11 truth’ professor on paid leave 08 Sep 2006 Brigham Young University placed physics professor Steven Jones on paid leave Thursday while it reviews his involvement in the so-called [It’s not ‘so-called,’ it is *exactly* called] “9/11 truth movement” that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center.
New poll says most Canadians blame U.S. for 9/11 attacks 07 Sep 2006 A majority of Canadians believe U.S. foreign policy was one of the root causes that led to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and Quebecers are quicker to criticize the U.S. administration for its international actions than other Canadians, a recent poll suggests.

Big church publisher buys 9-11 Bush plot 09 Aug 2006 It wasn’t Osama bin Laden who orchestrated the 9-11 attacks, it was George W. Bush, according to a book to be published this month by the Presbyterian Church USA. Called “Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action,” it is the third book on the conspiracy theory authored by David Ray Griffin, a professor emeritus of theology at Claremont School of Theology. According to Christianity Today, Griffin argues in his new book that the Bush administration planned the events of Sept. 11, 2001, so they could provide justification for going to war with Afghanistan and Iraq.
Book: Sept. 11 Panel Doubted Officials 04 Aug 2006 The Sept. 11 commission was so frustrated with repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and FAA about their response to the 2001 terror attacks that it considered an investigation into possible deception, the panel’s chairmen say in a new book. Republican Thomas Kean and Democrat Lee Hamilton also say in “Without Precedent” that their panel was too soft in questioning former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani — and that the 20-month investigation may have suffered for it.
“The hijack’s not supposed to be for another hour.” 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes –How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim? 01 Aug 2006 Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released tapes from the control room of NORAD’s Northeast headquarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic military history of that day—and the Pentagon’s apparent attempt to cover it up. By Michael Bronner “‘When they told me there was a hijack, my first reaction was ‘Somebody started the exercise early,’ [Major Kevin Nasypany, the facility’s mission-crew commander] later told me. The day’s exercise was designed to run a range of scenarios, including a ‘traditional’ simulated hijack in which politically motivated perpetrators commandeer an aircraft, land on a Cuba-like island, and seek asylum. ‘I actually said out loud, ‘The hijack’s not supposed to be for another hour,’ Nasypany recalled.”
“It was just so far from the truth. . . . It’s one of those loose ends that never got tied.” 9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon –Allegations Brought to Inspectors General 02 Aug 2006 Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day [Nah, ‘ya think?], according to sources involved in the debate. Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said.
Val McClatchey Photo: More Smoking Guns, or Total Fraud? By Killtown 18 Jul 2006 “Valencia (Val) McClatchey… is the person who took the famous photo of the mushroom cloud rising above a red barn that was supposedly from Flight 93 crashing down in Shanksville… Now after nearly five years of speculating over this photo, evidence has been discovered that conclusively shows that the mushroom cloud in her photo did not come from a Boeing 757 crashing at Shanksville and not only that, but there is something else about this photo that makes it a 100% proof positive smoking gun photo! However there is one slight problem, her photo may be a fake.”
9/11 conspiracy theorists gather at LA conference 25 Jun 2006 Some 1,200 people gathered at a Los Angeles hotel on the weekend for what organizers billed as the largest conference on the plethora of conspiracy theories that see the 2001 attacks on Washington and New York as, at best, official negligence, and at worst an orchestrated U.S. attempt to incite world war.
BYU Physics Prof Finds Thermate in WTC Physical Samples –Building Collapses an Inside Job By Jacob Hamblin 17 Jun 2006 “Based on chemical analysis of WTC structural steel residue, a Brigham Young University physics professor has identified the material as Thermate.

FBI says, “No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11” 06 Jun 2006 “On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, ‘The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.'”
New Pentagon video shows no Boeing airliner (total911info) 17 May 2006 “Following Freedom of Information Act lawsuits dating back to 2004, the Pentagon Tuesday released images recorded on the morning of 9/11 by two security cameras in the Pentagon parking lot. Five frames from one camera had previously been leaked in early 2002.

Supervisor: I Never Read Moussaoui Memo 21 Mar 2006 The headquarters supervisor [now retired, Michael Rolince] of the FBI’s international terrorism operations section testified Tuesday he had never read an Aug. 18, 2001, memo in which an agent proposed a full criminal investigation of Zacarias Moussaoui as a possible terrorist airplane hijacker.
Actor Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Story –Calls for truly independent investigation, joins growing ranks of prominent credible whistleblowers By Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson 20 Mar 2006 “Actor Charlie Sheen has joined a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it.”
U.S. Rep.: 9/11 Leader ID’d Repeatedly Before Attack 15 Feb 2006 The vice chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said a secret U.S. security unit identified terrorist Mohamed Atta more than a dozen times before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon also said the secret military team — code-named “Able Danger” — found “a problem” in Yemen two weeks before the deadly al-Qaida attack on the USS Cole in 2000. But Weldon said the ship commander was not told.
Weldon: ‘Able Danger’ identified Atta 13 times –Congressman says secret military unit knew of 9/11 hijacker before attacks 15 Feb 2006 Pre-Sept. 11 intelligence conducted by a secret military unit identified terrorist ringleader Mohamed Atta 13 different times, a congressman said Tuesday. During a Capitol Hill news conference, Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said the unit — code-named “Able Danger” — also identified “a problem” in Yemen two weeks before the attack on the USS Cole.
9/11 Attacks – Avoiding the hard questions by Robert Steinback 01 Feb 2006 “How did a fire fed by jet fuel, which at most burns at 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit, cause the collapse of the Twin Towers, built of steel that melts at 2,800 degrees? (Most experts agree that the impact of airliners, made mostly of lightweight aluminum, should not have been enough alone to cause structural failure.) …Why did building WTC-7 fall, though no aircraft struck it? Fire alone had never before caused a steel skyscraper to collapse. Why did all three buildings collapse largely into their own footprints — in the style of a controlled demolition? Why did no U.S. military jet intercept the wayward aircraft? Why has there been no investigation of BBC reports that five of the alleged 9/11 hijackers were alive and accounted for after the event?”
9/11 As ‘Reichstag fire’ Raised to White House Press Secretary (White House Press Briefing) 05 Jan 2006 “Q Scott, a few days ago, conservative columnist Paul Craig Roberts had a column where he compared the administration’s use of September 11th with Hitler and the Reichstag fire as a blanket cover for extraordinary measures. Now, this is coming from a conservative columnist; this is not Nancy Pelosi. Doesn’t this concern you that these kind of reactions have come up especially with all the revelations about the NSA and spying?”
Open and Shut –Four years later, we still have ten big questions By Jarrett Murphy “On Monday, December 5, the 9-11 Public Discourse Project—a private group formed by 9-11 Commission members after their official mandate lapsed in 2004—held a wrap-up press briefing in Washington… [10 questions on 9-11] 1. Where was the ‘National Command Authority’? 2. Who gave the order to try to shoot the planes down? …6. Why did 7 WTC fall?…” [7 WTC *fell* because Larry Silverstein gave the command to have it ‘pulled.’ See: Larry Silverstein, WTC 7, and the 9/11 Demolition (whatreallyhappened.com) Larry Silverstein, the controller of the destroyed WTC complex, stated plainly in a PBS documentary that he and the FDNY decided jointly to demolish the Solomon Bros. building, or WTC 7, late in the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. See also: Professional Demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 (prisonplanet.com) Larry Silverstein, the owner of the WTC complex, admitted on a September 2002 PBS documentary, ‘America Rebuilds’ that he and the NYFD decided to ‘pull’ WTC 7 on the day of the attack. The word ‘pull’ is industry jargon for taking a building down with explosives.]
New furor over 9/11 EPA blasted for nixing cleanup 04 Dec 2005 Despite the smoke and debris that blanketed Brooklyn after the Sept. 11 attacks, a high-ranking federal official said “it wasn’t apparent” Kings County got enough toxic dust to warrant a cleanup. The Environmental Protection Agency ditched plans last week to include Brooklyn in a test-and-cleanup program for contaminants from the smoldering World Trade Center site.
What did U.S. military know before 9/11? –Congress wants to hear more about allegations that four hijackers were identified before they acted. 26 Nov 2005 A top-secret military program set up six years ago to probe the Al-Qaida terrorist network is provoking fierce new debate about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Military intelligence officers and contractors who ran the clandestine mission, named Able Danger, say that more than a year before the attacks, the operation identified four of the plot’s 19 hijackers and produced a chart that fingered ringleader Mohamed Atta. Those claims contradict findings of the 9/11 commission set up by Congress.
Weldon seeks Defense testimony on al-Qaida 17 Nov 2005 U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said he plans to ask the Pentagon to allow certain intelligence officers to testify about pre-Sept. 11 investigations. Weldon has been working to uncover what information a Department of Defense intelligence cell called ‘Able Danger’ had on Mohammad Atta, the suspected ringleader in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror hijackings.
BYU professor thinks bombs, not planes, toppled WTC 10 Nov 2005 The physics of 9/11 — including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell — prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor. In fact, it’s likely that there were “pre-positioned explosives” in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones.
DIA pressures 9/11 whistleblower 21 Oct 2005 A Republican congressman is calling for a new investigation into what he says is a “witch-hunt” by defense chiefs against a 9/11 intelligence whistleblower, and has threatened to resign from Congress if the matter is ignored. Representative Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania told the US House of Representatives on Wednesday that officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) were embarked on “an attempt to prevent the American people from knowing the facts about how we could have prevented” the 11 September 2001 attacks.
CIA agents exempted from punishment for 9/11 errors 06 Oct 2005 The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) will not hold any of its former and current members accountable for intelligence lapses related to the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the agency’s chief said Wednesday.

Newsday Shields Long Island Readers From 9/11 Skeptics By Nicholas Levis 04 Oct 2005 “We reported early Saturday morning that New York Newsday published an article about people who reject the US government’s account of the September 11 events. The story by Newsday Staff Writer Patricia Hurtado had already appeared on the newsday.com website. But we later discovered that the editors kept it out of the newspaper itself. (That applies to the Long Island Saturday and ‘Early Sunday’ editions, which are nearly identical in news content; the story did run in the lower-circulation New York City editions.)”
FDNY Chaplain Resigns After Remarks About 9/11 Conspiracy Theory 30 Sep 2005 The fire department’s Muslim chaplain abruptly resigned Friday after saying in a published interview that a conspiracy, not 19 al-Qaida hijackers, may have been responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks… “It takes two or three weeks to demolish a building like that. But it was pulled down in a couple of hours,” Intikab Habib told Newsday. “Was it 19 hijackers who brought it down, or was it a conspiracy?”
Because the ‘old’ charges were bogus: New charges filed against 2 Albany, NY Muslims 30 Sep 2005 Two Islamic men accused in an FBI sting are facing new charges of helping a terrorist organization a year after the judge in the case said there was no evidence of their links to extremist groups. The indictments were based on new evidence presented by prosecutors who, since being sharply criticized by the judge a year ago, have traveled the globe [at taxpayers’ expense] to ‘strengthen’ their ‘case.’
Pentagon, Senate committee bicker over 9/11 probe 24 Sep 2005 The Pentagon and the Senate Judiciary Committee squabbled publicly on Friday about whether lawmakers could question five key witnesses in public about their claims the U.S. military identified four Sept. 11 hijackers long before the 20001 attacks.
Senators Accuse Pentagon of Obstructing Inquiry on Sept. 11 Plot 21 Sep 2005 Senators from both parties accused the Defense Department on Wednesday of obstructing an investigation into whether a highly classified intelligence program known as Able Danger did indeed identify Mohamed Atta and other future hijackers as potential threats well before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Pentagon Nixes 9/11 Hearing Testimony 21 Sep 2005 The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said Wednesday he would look into whether the Pentagon obstructed his committee by refusing to allow testimony from five people who had knowledge of a secret military unit named “Able Danger.”

Curt Weldon, R-Pa.
Boycott Silverstein Properties! (Killtown’s Blog) 11 Sep 2005 “On this 4th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it’s time to start turning up the heat to get at the truth. Killtown is calling for a boycott of Silverstein Properties until Larry Silverstein explains what he meant about the phrase ‘pull it’ when talking about the WTC 7 collapsing on a PBS documentary. Silverstein has profited enormously from his entire complex being destroyed in the attacks and there is strong evidence that the collapse of the WTC 7 was a controlled demolition.”

Day 1,461 And Counting –It’s the fourth anniversary of September 11 — and Osama bin Laden is still at large. By Michael Tomasky 08 Sep 2005 “…[E]ven the disaster Bush has created in Iraq takes a back seat to one overwhelming fact: By the time night falls on September 11, Osama bin Laden will have been at large for 1,461 days. America vanquished world fascism in less time: We obtained Germany’s surrender in 1,243 days, Japan’s in 1,365. Even the third Punic War, in which Carthage was burned to the ground and emptied of citizens who were taken en masse into Roman slavery, lasted around 1,100 days (and troops needed a little longer to get into position back in 149 B.C.).”
9/11: Cold Case –A former Bush-appointed official is calling for a new, independent, scientific investigation into 9/11 Sep 2005 Morgan Reynolds, Bush’s chief economist for the Department of Labor from 2001-02, is an outspoken leader in a movement calling for a full-scale, unbiased, independent scientific study into the events of Sept. 11, 2001… He thinks the collapse of the World Trade Center, the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Penn., and the attack on the Pentagon were all weaved together as an elaborate inside job, a claim that only forensics can prove.
9/11 a US plot, newspaper claims 09 Sep 2005 Australia’s most radical Islamic group has defied John Howard by launching a provocative public campaign to persuade Muslims the 9/11 terror attacks were a massive US-inspired conspiracy… The newspaper devotes a feature to supporting claims made by a US author, David Ray Griffin, that a plane never crashed into the Pentagon and that the story was an elaborate hoax by the US. The feature says: “The hole created in the (Pentagon) facade was not big enough to fit the nose of a plane let alone an entire (Boeing) 757 — the question is how could such a big airplane have created such a small hole?”

Getting Agnostic About 9/11 –A society of nonbelievers questions the official version By Mark Ehrman “Anyone who types the words ‘9/11’ and ‘conspiracy’ into an online search engine soon learns that not everybody buys the official narrative of what took place on Sept. 11, 2001. [Professor emeritus David Ray] Griffin compiled a summary of material arguing against the accepted story that 19 hijackers sent by Osama bin Laden took the aviation system and the U.S. military by surprise that awful day in his 2004 book ‘The New Pearl Harbor…'”
‘Able Danger’ Shut Down In February 2001 (Can’t blame Bill Clinton, folks!) 13 Aug 2005 Ten days before publication of the 9/11 Commission report, commission staff discounted information from a military officer linking Sept. 11 hijacker Mohammed Atta to a terror cell believed to be operating in New York City more than a year before the terrorist attacks. According to a statement released Friday by The 9/11 Public Discourse Project, the two commission staff members who interviewed the officer in July 2004 concluded his story about a Defense Department intelligence counterterrorism program, called Able Danger, that worked to identify and target al-Qaida and other terrorists, was not credible. As a result, the information was not included in the commission’s final report published July 22, 2004… A small group of Defense Intelligence Agency employees ran the Able Danger operation from fall 1999 to February 2001 – just seven months before the terrorist attacks – when the operation was unceremoniously axed, according to a former defense intelligence official familiar with the program. The former official asked not to be identified.
Second Officer Says 9/11 Leader Was Named Before Attacks 23 Aug 2005 An active-duty Navy captain has become the second military officer to come forward publicly to say that a secret intelligence program tagged the ringleader of the Sept. 11 attacks as a possible terrorist more than a year before the attacks. The officer, Scott J. Phillpott, said in a statement on Monday that he could not discuss details of the military program, which was called Able Danger, but confirmed that its analysts had identified the Sept. 11 ringleader, Mohamed Atta, by name by early 2000.
4 hijackers ID’d as al-Qaeda before 9/11, officer says 18 Aug 2005 A military intelligence team investigating al-Qaeda identified four members of the terrorist organization a year before they became 9/11 hijackers, according to an officer on the intelligence team. But he says that the FBI did not get the information and that the 9/11 Commission failed to expose the lapse.
‘Able Danger’ Stopped From Informing FBI 17 Aug 2005 An Army intelligence officer said Wednesday he does not believe the 9/11 commission pressed hard enough for documentation of claims that military intelligence found a U.S.-based terrorist cell that included Mohamed Atta, who turned out to be the leader of the Sept. 11 attacks, prior to the terrorist strikes.
‘Able Danger’ Intel Exposed ‘Protected’ Heroin Trafficking By Daniel Hopsicker 17 Aug 2005 “Mohamed Atta was protected from official scrutiny as part of an officially-protected cocaine and heroin trafficking network with ties to top political figures, including Republican officials Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris, and it was this fact—and not the ‘terrible lapses’ of ‘weak on terror’ Clinton Administration officials cited by Republican Congressman Curt Weldon—which shielded him from being apprehended before the 9.11 attack.”
Officer: Unit Stopped From Giving FBI Info 16 Aug 2005 An Army intelligence officer says his unit was blocked in 2000 and 2001 from giving the FBI information about a U.S.-based terrorist cell that included Mohamed Atta, the future ‘leader’ of the Sept. 11 attacks. Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer said the small intelligence unit, called “Able Danger,” had identified Atta and three of the other future Sept. 11 hijackers as al-Qaida members by mid-2000. He said military lawyers stopped the unit from sharing the information with the FBI.

9/11 Commission’s Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker 11 Aug 2005 The Sept. 11 commission was warned by a uniformed military officer 10 days before issuing its final report that the account would be incomplete without reference to what he described as a secret military operation that by the summer of 2000 had identified as a potential threat the member of Al Qaeda who would lead the attacks more than a year later, commission officials said on Wednesday.
9/11 Panel Members Ask Congress to Learn if Pentagon Withheld Files on Hijackers in 2000 10 Aug 2005 Members of the independent commission that investigated the Sept. 11 terror attacks called on Congress to determine whether the Pentagon withheld intelligence information showing that a secret American military unit had identified Mohammed Atta and three other ‘hijackers’ as potential threats more than a year before the attacks.
CIA Commander: U.S. Let bin Laden Slip Away 15 Aug 2005 In a forthcoming book, the CIA field commander for the agency’s Jawbreaker team at Tora Bora, Gary Berntsen, says he and other U.S. commanders did know that bin Laden was among the hundreds of fleeing Qaeda and Taliban members. Berntsen says he had definitive intelligence that bin Laden was holed up at Tora Bora—intelligence operatives had tracked him—and could have been caught. [Yes, but capturing bin Laden would have abrogated the contract he has with the Bush regime.]
9/11 conspiracy DVD sent to French media 05 Aug 2005 Hundreds of French reporters have received copies of a DVD claiming the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks were fabricated by the Bush administration.

Bush Responds to 911 Fireworks By Jon Carlson 11 Jul 2005 “In the most important interview since 9/11, Joseph Wilson joins the parade of Federal government insiders questioning 9/11. In additon, Joseph Wilson analyzes the current political climate in the Bush Administration and the Middle East… Joseph Wilson is questioned on 9/11 in this segment of the interview: CLG: I can’t let this moment pass without asking you about 9/11 and the Bush Administration. Do you notice any oddities about how the Bush Administration handled the events, the aftermath or the investigation of 9/11? Do you see any holes in the government’s explanation of events? (Obviously, we at the CLG do. See our page: http://www.legitgov.org/9_1_1_oddities.html.) JW: I have obviously followed the inquiries into 9/11 and I know Dick Clarke and Rand Beers very well but I am not an expert. I look to the “Jersey Girls” who have so assiduously pushed the case in the memory of their late husbands, for real understanding. I have great admiration for them and for what they have done. They are not satisfied, so neither am I. http://www.legitgov.org/clg_interview_joseph_wilson_060705.html
Reaction to Bush Insider Claim WTC Collapse Bogus Gets ‘Huge Response’ And Read By Millions Worldwide –After the dust settled, a former chief economist in Labor Department shocked by enormous support for his story and vows to keep writing about glaring inconsistencies in government’s version of 9/11. By Greg Szymanski 29 Jun 2005 “When Morgan Reynolds called the official story about 9/11 bogus, it seemed like the whole world stopped for a moment to listen… Two weeks ago, the former chief economist in the Labor Department during President [sic] Bush’s first term told the world he thought the WTC fell from a controlled demolition, indicating 9/11 was ‘an inside government job.'”
Former MI5 Agent Says 9/11 An Inside Job (globalnewsmatrix) Attack Was ‘Coup de’tat,’ Buildings Were Demolished By Controlled Demolitions –Former MI5 agent David Shayler, who previously blew the whistle on the British government paying Al Qaeda $200,000 to carry out political assassinations, has gone on the record with his conviction that 9/11 was an inside job meant to bring about a permanent state of emergency in America and pave the way for the invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq and ultimately Iran and Syria.

Cheney knows where bin Laden is hiding, but not exact ‘address’ 25 Jun 2005 US Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney said that he knows where Al-Qaeda terror chief Osama bin Laden is hiding out, but not his precise location. “We’ve got a pretty good idea of the general area that he’s in, but I — you know, I don’t have the street address,” Cheney told CNN in an interview, confirming comments by Central Intelligence Agency chief Porter Goss.

10 Questions For Porter Goss The director of the CIA talks to TIME about false intelligence and organic gardening 19 Jun 2005 “[Q] When will we get Osama bin Laden? [A] That is a question that goes far deeper than you know. In the chain that you need to successfully wrap up the war on terror, we have some weak links. And I find that until we strengthen all the links, we’re probably not going to be able to bring Mr. bin Laden to justice…”

WTC Collapse Due to Controlled Demolition, “Inside Job” – Former Bush Advisor -by John Daly, UPI “A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President [sic] George W. Bush’s first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is ‘bogus’ and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, ‘If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an ‘inside job’ and a government attack on America would be compelling.'” [It’s 2,749 counts of *premeditated murder!* Let the treason trials begin!!]
Pre-9/11 Missteps By FBI Detailed –Report Tells of Missed Chances to Find ‘Hijackers’ –The inability to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, ‘hijacking’ plot amounts to a “significant failure” by the FBI and was caused in large part by “widespread and longstanding deficiencies” in the way the agency handled terrorism and intelligence cases, according to a report released yesterday.
TV show depicts 9/11 as Bush plot –Sunday night’s episode of “Tatort,” a popular murder mystery, revolved around a German woman and a man who was killed in her apartment. According to the plot, which was seen by approximately 7 million Germans, the dead man had been trained to be one of the September 11 pilots but was left behind, only to be tracked down and killed by CIA or FBI assassins. The woman, who says in the program that the September 11 attacks were instigated by the Bush family for oil and power, then is targeted, presumably to silence her. The drama concludes with the German detectives accepting the truth of her story as she eludes the U.S. government hit men and escapes to safety in an unnamed Arab country.
The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie –by Dr. David Ray Griffin, 9/11 Visibility Project 22 May 2005 “In discussing my second 9/11 book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I have often said, only half in jest, that a better title might have been ‘a 571-page lie.’ (Actually, I was saying ‘a 567-page lie,’ because I was forgetting to count the four pages of the Preface.) In making this statement, one of my points has been that the entire Report is constructed in support of one big lie: that the official story about 9/11 is true.”

Shareholder Proposal: Insurer to Investigate 9/11 02 May 2005 –Allianz Group published a shareholder proposal on April 20th faulting management for ignoring signs of insurance fraud on 9/11/2001. Allianz carried a significant portion of the insurance coverage on the WTC, and stands to pay a corresponding portion of the $3.5 billion payout currently being litigated in New York. In his proposal, shareholder John Leonard… pointed to reports that building WTC 7 apparently collapsed by demolition, and for no plausible reason related to the 9/11 attacks.

Professor Griffin argues that the “omissions and distortions” in the report amount to a cover-up by government officials and says that the available evidence suggests that the Bush administration was complicit in the 9/11 attacks (either by ignoring known threats or through actual participation in the planning of the attacks).”
Another Lost Opportunity –An informant was providing U.S. officials with very specific information about a terrorist attack three months before 9/11. In the spring of 2001, one of the U.S. government’s most valuable terror informants gave the FBI a far more alarming account of Al Qaeda plans to attack inside the United States than has ever been publicly disclosed, according to newly available court documents. …Fresh documents, released in federal court in Seattle in recent days, shed new light on an issue that dominated last year’s hearings by the September 11 commission: precisely how much did the U.S. government know about Al Qaeda plans to strike inside the country in the summer of 2001 when the attacks on the World Trade Towers and Pentagon were in their final stages?
FBI Protects Osama bin Laden’s “Right to Privacy” In Document Release –Judicial Watch Investigation Uncovers FBI Documents Concerning Bin Laden Family and Post-9/11 Flights 20 April 2005 (Judicial Watch Press Release) “Judicial Watch, the public interest group that fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents through the Freedom of Information Act (‘FOIA’) in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation (‘FBI’) has invoked privacy right protections on behalf of al Qaeda terror leader Osama bin Laden. In a September 24, 2003 declassified ‘Secret’ FBI report obtained by Judicial Watch, the FBI invoked Exemption 6 under FOIA law on behalf of bin Laden, which permits the government to withhold all information about U.S. persons in ‘personnel and medical files and similar files’ when the disclosure of such information ‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’ (5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(6) (2000)) …Many of the references in the redacted documents cite publicly available news articles from sources such as The Washington Post and Associated Press.” [Click here for FOIA document, censored.]

VIDEO: CNN reported no plane hit Pentagon –See shockwave video file of a clip from CNN coverage on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. CNN reporter Jamie McIntyre says he inspected the Pentagon site and it is obvious no plane crashed there. Clip archived by TheWebFairy.com; Transcript by Total911.info “JAMIE MCINTYRE: From my close-up inspection, there’s no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. The only site, is the actual side of the building that’s crashed in. And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon and then caused the side to collapse. Even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that the floors have all collapsed, that didn’t happen immediately. It wasn’t until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed.”

9/11 panel: FAA warned about al-Qaida –In the months before Sept. 11, the Federal Aviation Administration told some of the nation’s largest airports that if a terrorist wanted to hijack a plane to commit suicide in a “spectacular explosion,” it would likely be a hijacking on U.S. soil rather than overseas.
Before 9/11 attacks, FAA issued 52 hijacking warnings –Panel’s report is critical of failure to boost security –The Federal Aviation Administration received repeated warnings in the months prior to Sept. 11, 2001, about al-CIA-duh and its desire to attack airlines, according to a previously undisclosed report by the commission that investigated the terror attacks. The report by the 9/11 commission that investigated the suicide airliner attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon detailed 52 such warnings given to FAA leaders from April to Sept. 10, 2001, about the radical Islamic terrorist group and its leader, Osama bin Laden.

(Mad Cow Morning News) “Michael Chertoff, appointed by President [sic] Bush to head the Homeland Security Department, may have shielded from criminal prosecution a former client suspected by law enforcement of having funneled millions of dollars directly to Osama Bin Laden while in charge of the U.S. Government’s 9.11 investigation.”
Chertoff played key role on 9/11 –In the minutes after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, while Attorney General John Ashcroft was rushing back from Milwaukee, Michael Chertoff was calling the shots… Chertoff would spend the next two years serving as a central figure in formulating U.S. anti[pro]-terrorism policy — from the effort to secretly detain hundreds of Middle Easterners in the USA, to increasing the FBI’s authority to conduct domestic surveillance at religious gatherings and other public events.
Is Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman? –by Robert Scheer “Is it conceivable that Al Qaeda, as defined by President [sic] Bush as the center of a vast and well-organized international terrorist conspiracy, does not exist? To even raise the question amid all the officially inspired hysteria is heretical, especially in the context of the U.S. media’s supine acceptance of administration claims relating to national security. Yet a brilliant new BBC film produced by one of Britain’s leading documentary filmmakers systematically challenges this and many other accepted articles of faith in the so-called war on terror.”
Ten Things We Learned About 911 In 2004 (Rigorous Institution, Blogspot.com) “1. The World Trade Center Black Boxes were recovered, though officials perpetuate the lie that they weren’t. 2. FEMA really did arrive early in New York City, for the ‘bioterror drill’ Tripod II, and Rudi Giuliani’s testimony to that effect before the 9/11 Commission is its only public testimony which remains officially untranscribed. 3. The Total Information Awareness program was ready to roll out before Sept 11, and John Poindexter’s office was established in the Pentagon no later than Sept 12.”
Ex-FBI agent admits giving out 9/11 data –A former FBI agent admitted that he gave online stock traders confidential details of federal investigations, including a probe of the Sept. 11 terror attacks. One of the recipients was San Diego stock speculator Anthony Elgindy. A Justice Department task force had begun the investigation of Elgindy to determine whether anyone might have known of the Bush regime’s [terrorists’] plans and profited by selling vulnerable stocks just before the attacks, Jeffrey Royer said.
Rumsfeld’s 9-11 Admission “…[T]he people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania…”
Surprise Trip for Donald Rumsfeld; Interview With Brigadier General James Marks; Christian in Iraq –Transcript –Aired December 24, 2004 – 12:00 ET “DONALD RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: …And I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon, the people who cut off peoples’ heads on television to intimidate, to frighten — indeed the word ‘terrorized’ is just that. Its purpose is to terrorize, to alter behavior, to make people be something other than that which they want to be.”
‘Ghost’ Employees Born in 9/11 Cleanup — December 17, 2004 –In exchange for theater tickets and limousine-chauffeured dinner dates, employees of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey granted no-show jobs to contractors who were supposed to be clearing wreckage from the World Trade Center, according to Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. “We were providing checks for employees that did not exist,” the Port Authority’s inspector general, Robert Van Etten, said.
Revealing 9-11 Stock Trades Could Expose The Terrorist Masterminds –by Christopher Bollyn “Among the most conspicuous spikes in trading activity were the huge increases in ‘put options’ placed on the two airlines involved in the hijackings of Sept. 11, United Airlines (UAL) and American Airlines. There was a 9,000 percent jump in United Air Lines (UAL) put options between Sept. 6 and Sept. 10, with a huge spike 285 times higher than average on the Thursday before the attack. American Airlines saw a 6,000 percent jump in put options above normal the day before the attacks. However, there was no similar trading activity on any other airlines, according to market reports. The brokerage houses that had offices in the WTC, Morgan Stanley and Merrill-Lynch, saw 27-fold and 12-fold increases in the purchases of put options on their respective shares between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10. ‘The afternoon before the attack, alarm bells were sounding over unusual trading in the U.S. stock options market,’ the CBS program 60 Minutes reported on Sept. 19.”
Sept. 11 Conspiracy Theorist Offers $100,000 Prize –Jimmy Walter has spent more than $3 million promoting a conspiracy theory the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States were “an inside job” and he is offering more cash to anyone who proves him wrong.
A theologian asks the hard questions about 9/11 –A soft-spoken professor of religion risks a hard-earned reputation as a scholar to write one of the most incredible political books of the year –David Griffin’s book, The New Pearl Harbour: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 has already sold an astonishing 80,000 copies. …The book fleshes out in 214 pages the question asked in the final moment of Michael Moore’s documentary, Fahrenheit 911. That’s when the filmmaker wonders aloud: What exactly was Bush thinking as he sat in front of a bunch of school children reading a book titled My Pet Goat, knowing two jetliners had been flown into the World Trade Center?
Firefighter Said Black Boxes Were Found at Ground Zero By Bryan Sacks and Nicholas Levis Oct. 27, 2004 “Amid the enormous detail of loss, sorrow and recovery conveyed in ‘Behind-the-Scenes: Ground Zero,’ a New York City firefighter reveals that at least three of the four black boxes from Flights 11 and 175 were found by ‘Federal Agents’ at the former World Trade Center site, during the clean-up efforts from September 2001 to March 2002. At the time of the disaster, Nicholas DeMasi was a firefighter at Engine Company 261 in Queens… The only statement on the status of the Ground Zero black boxes in the 9/11 Commission Report is buried in footnote 76 to Chapter 1, but it is definitive: ‘The CVRs and FDRs from American 11 and United 175 were not found…'”
New Seismic Data Refutes Official Explanation –Two unexplained “spikes” in the seismic record from Sept. 11 indicate huge bursts of energy shook the ground beneath the World Trade Center’s twin towers immediately prior to the collapse. By Christopher Bollyn “American Free Press has learned of pools of ‘molten steel’ found at the base of the collapsed twin towers weeks after the collapse. Although the energy source for these incredibly hot areas has yet to be explained, New York seismometers recorded huge bursts of energy, which caused unexplained seismic ‘spikes’ at the beginning of each collapse. These spikes suggest that massive underground explosions may have literally knocked the towers off their foundations, causing them to collapse.”
First-hand Accounts of Underground Explosions In the North Tower –This article from Chief Engineer magazine presents eyewitness account of the moments after the first plane crash, and describes evidence of large explosions in the lobby, parking garage and subbasement levels of WTC-1 at the time of the crash… One of the most remarkable is the story of Mike Pecoraro, who was working in the 6th sub-basement of the North Tower when the first plane hit…
Area man stirs debate on WTC collapse –South Bend firm’s lab director fired after questioning federal probe –The laboratory director from a South Bend (IN) firm has been fired for attempting to cast doubt on the federal investigation into what caused the World Trade Center’s twin towers to collapse on Sept. 11, 2001.
Participants in the Cover-Up of 9/11: The Case of American and United Airlines –by Elias Davidsson “The first AA aircraft (flight AA11, tail no. N334AA) is said to have left Logan airport in Boston at 7:59 with 92 people on board (crew, passengers and hijackers) and crashed at 8:46 on the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City… As of November 13, 2003, the statistical database of the Department of Transportation (BTS) did not even mention AA11 as a flight scheduled for September 11, 2001 (6). At a later date the Department added a record for this flight with the departure time set as zero. Checking again the BTS database for this article on November 18, 2004, I discovered that the DoT again amended its database by setting the scheduled departure of AA11 to the ‘official time’ of 7:45 (6). It appears that the DoT had received orders to align its database with the ‘official account’ on the crime of 9/11.”
Clarke: CIA Had Spies Inside Al Qaeda, Pre-9/11 –The CIA had some low-level spies inside al Qaeda in the three years before the Sept. 11 attacks, but none who could provide advance information about the group’s movements [?!?], according to testimony released on Wednesday from a closed-door intelligence briefing in 2002. On the three occasions when they thought they knew bin Laden’s location, the CIA opposed taking military action, saying its sources were not good enough, Richard Clarke, a former White House counterterrorism official, told lawmakers.
Clinton administration was worried about U.S. al-Qaida cells, Clarke says –A year before the Bush ‘presidency’ began, the Clinton administration was deeply concerned that al-Qaida sleeper cells existed in North America and considered taking swift action in response, according to newly released testimony.
Unit Plans Closed Hearings on Collapse of the Towers –The federal agency investigating the collapse of the World Trade Center said this week that some of its deliberations would take place in secret, including discussions on possible changes to national building codes and standards. The announcement has been sharply protested by advocates for families of the 9/11 victims, who said they were considering a lawsuit to force the agency to open the meetings to the public.
C.I.A. Chief Seeks Change in Inspector’s 9/11 Report –The director of central intelligence (and Bush troll) has asked the C.I.A.’s inspector general to modify a draft report on the Sept. 11 attacks to avoid drawing conclusions about whether individual C.I.A. officers should be held accountable for any failures, Congressional and intelligence officials said Monday.
Day of the Dead: The Haunting of the White House –by Cynthia McKinney and Catherine Austin Fitts “Something is rising from the ashes of September 11: the spectre of questions that will haunt our country until answered. Months after the release of the official 9/11 Commission Report – even as Congress moves to implement its proposals for a radical centralization of security forces – growing numbers of Americans are doubting their own government’s account of what really happened on September 11, and how… Last week, the New York City office of Eliot Spitzer received a citizens’ complaint to open a legal inquiry into crimes still unsolved, more than three years later. So begins the haunting of the White House.”
Part of US September 11 commission report has not been released: report –The US Justice Department has reportedly not released a final chapter of the September 11 commission’s report related to conflicting accounts of efforts to track and chase the jets hijacked that day, and is unlikely to do so before Tuesday’s presidential vote.
NY Attorney General’s Office Accepts Unprecedented Citizens’ Complaint Demanding Criminal Inquiry into 9/11 Crimes –U.S. Newswire/ –“On behalf of New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Chief Investigator William Casey today accepted a Complaint and Petition from a group of New York City citizens including 9/11 family members, survivors and a Ground Zero triage physician. The Complaint demands that the AG open a criminal inquiry and/or grand jury investigation into the many still unsolved crimes of September 11, 2001 over which he has jurisdiction.”

Former CIA agent says Bush to blame for 9/11 –Former CIA agent Ray McGovern went over what he considers the failures of the intelligence community and current administration over the past few years… He also criticized the 9/11 Commission’s final report, saying the committee was comprised of political extremists who couldn’t reach a consensus. “It wasn’t a bipartisan commission; it was more like a bipolar commission,” McGovern said. “To say that no one could prevent 9/11 was a bold-faced lie. It basically let the president [sic] and everyone responsible off the hook.”
9/11 report ‘deeply flawed’ –The official September 11 commission report is deeply flawed because it fails to fix blame for US intelligence shortcomings, a group of former CIA and FBI officials said on Monday. The officials said there were “serious shortcomings” in the report made public in July.

Senator Accuses Bush of Cover-Up –Senator Bob Graham, the Florida Democrat who is a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused the White House on Tuesday of covering up evidence that might have linked Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11 hijackers.
Graham book: Inquiry into 9/11, Saudi ties blocked –Two of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers had a support network in the United States that included agents of the Saudi government, and the Bush dictatorship and FBI blocked a congressional investigation into that relationship, Sen. Bob Graham wrote in a book to be released Tuesday. The discovery of the financial backing of the two hijackers ”would draw a direct line between the terrorists and the government of Saudi Arabia, and trigger an attempted coverup by the Bush administration,” the Florida Democrat wrote.
Ruppert Names Cheney Prime Suspect In 911 Mass Murders –“I will name Richard Cheney as the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11 and will establish that, not only was he a planner in the attacks, but also that on the day of the attacks he was running a completely separate Command, Control and Communications system which was superceding any orders being issued by the NMCC [National Military Command Center], or the White House Situation Room.” — Michael Ruppert —Text of Michael Ruppert’s Speech at the Commonwealth Club Last Night by repost Wednesday, Sep. 01, 2004 at 9:34 AM.

The Secret Hijacking –The Fifth Plane landed in Cleveland –by Woody Box “The Secret Hijacking -The Fifth Plane landed in Cleveland… –The thesis of the secret hijacked airplane helps to explain many hitherto unsolved peculiarities of 9/11. It looks like the existence of this flight was meant to be hidden from the public by interested circles, so the question arises: Why was it kept secret? And of course it would be interesting to find out the airport where Flight X started.”
The Cleveland Airport Mystery –200 passengers got lost on 9/11 — by Woody Box (May 30, 2004) “In midst the chaos breaking out in the hours after the WTC and Pentagon attacks, between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m an airplane made an emergency landing at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Rumours were going around that it was hijacked or had a bomb on board… The plane – Delta flight 1989 – was not hijacked, and there was no bomb. However, a closer examination reveals a bunch of conflicting statements concerning Delta 1989… For every aspect of the incident there are two different versions. Not one or three or four versions, but two. This article will prove that not one, but two planes made an emergency landing in Cleveland – in close succession.”
German 9/11 trial in doubt after US blocks witnesses –The retrial of a Moroccan man convicted of involvement in the September 11 attacks appeared to be in doubt last night after the Bush dictatorship refused to allow two key al-CIA-duh suspects to give evidence.
Miracles and Wonders –by Alan Cabal “Before this new “Pico cell,” it was nigh on impossible to make a call from a passenger aircraft in flight. Connection is impossible at altitudes over 8000 feet or speeds in excess of 230 mph. Yet despite this, passengers Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Jeremy Glick and Edward Felt all managed to place calls from Flight 93 on the morning of September 11… And last but not least, every suburban homeowner will want the miraculous PentaGrass. Whatever that lawn at the Pentagon is made out of, it sure is amazing stuff—it resists and repels fire, explosion, skid marks, aircraft debris, jet fuel, luggage and body parts.” [A must read]
Dayton: FAA, NORAD hid 9/11 failures –Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., charged Friday that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) have covered up “catastrophic failures” that left the nation vulnerable during the Sept. 11 hijackings.

Action Alert: Saudi Arabia –Take action to save Rizana’s life from execution

Contents
1. Summary
2. Background
3. Action required
4. Sample letters

1. Summary

Rizana Nafeek lost her appeal against the death sentence for the death of an infant she was taking care of. The decision is currently being reviewed by the advisor of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia for ratification.

IHRC urges all campaigners to write their local MPs asking them to raise this case with their country’s Minister of foreign affairs, to put pressure on their Saudi counterparts to grant clemency for Rizana Nafeek.

2. Background

Rizana Nafeek, 22 years old, was charged with strangling the 4 month old infant of the family for whom she worked as a housemaid in Dawadmi city.

Sri Lankan Muslim Ms Nafeek is detained facing the death penalty for allegedly strangling Naif Jiziyan Khalaf Al-Otaibi’s four-month-old son.

She came to Saudi when she was 17 years old to work for al-Otaibi household in Dawadmi as a maid. A week after she arrived she was assigned to look after the four month old baby, without any training and in addition to her daily duties.

While bottle feeding the baby, he started choking on the milk. Nafeek shouted for help; however by the time the mother arrived the baby fell unconscious.

Rizana was taken to the police where the family of the baby claimed that she committed a premeditated murder. She was tortured in the police station and was made to confess, under duress, which she later retracted.

Her torture as a child and a juvenile is against the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child which had been ratified by the Saudi Arabian government.

She was denied access to her lawyer during her pre-trial interrogation.

Kateb el-Shammari, who was appointed by the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) to defend Nafeek, doubted the credentials of the translation of Rizana’s confession in to Arabic. Translation was made by a Tamil speaking, Saibo, who left the country and cannot be located now.

Nafeek was indicted and found guilty of the alleged death of an infant in 2005. The verdict was later endorsed by the Supreme Court in Riyadh and a death sentence was given.

In June 2007, Nafeek was sentenced to death by a three-member panel of judges headed by Abdullah al-Rosimi , Chief Justice of Dawadmi High Court.

In September 25, 2010, Nafeek’s death sentence was upheld by Riyadh’s Supreme Court after losing her appeal against the death sentence. The decision is now being referred to the Interior Ministry and Council of Ministers which is headed by King Abdullah of Saudi, who can either approve the death sentence or grant her amnesty.

Nafeek’s lawyer told IHRC: “Amnesty can be granted by the King of Saudi, who presides the Council of Ministers, or by al-Otaibi, family of the deceased infant”.

Sri Lankan President, Mahinda Rajapaksa has written an appeal to King Abdullah of Saudi requesting him to spare the life of Nafeek.

3. Action required

Write to the your local MPs urging them to intervene in this matter and to raise it with the Ministers of Foreign Affairs in their country to impose pressure on their Saudi counterparts to release Rizana Nafeek. UK Campaigners will find the appropriate details provided in the link below.

Dear [name],

Re: Saudi Arabia – Clemency for Rizana Nafeek

I am writing to request that you act urgently to prevent the execution of Rizana Nafeek who received the death sentence on 25th September, 2010 by Riyadh’s Supreme Court in Saudi Arabia. She lost her appeal for the death of a baby, the son of Naif Jiziyan Khalaf Al-Otaibi. Ms Nafeek maintains that it was an accident and she has no motives whatsoever to kill a baby. In fact she had only been in the country less than a month when the tragic death occurred.

Ms Nafeek was taken to police where the family of the baby claimed that she committed a premeditated murder. She was tortured in the police station and made to confess, under torture…

Mumbai Terror Attack: Further Evidence Of The Anglo-American-Mossad-RSS Nexus

By Amaresh Misra
03 December, 2008
Countercurrents.org
Now who has the last laugh? That is the question; I only have pity for those who cannot see reality and who were so glib to buy into what the media and political troubleshooters were saying about the Mumbai terrorist attacks.
Consider this:

As a BBC report notes, at least some of the Mumbai attackers were not Indian and certainly not Muslim.Pappu Mishra, a cafe proprietor at the gothic Victorian Chattrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station, described “two sprightly young men dressed in black” with AK47s who were “foreign looking, fair skinned.”Gaffar Abdul Amir, an Iraqi tourist from Baghdad, saw at least two men who started the firing outside the Leopold Cafe. “They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed,” Amir told the BBC.

According to Andrew G. Marshall, the ISI “has long been referred to as Pakistan’s ‘secret government’ or ‘shadow state.’ It’s long-standing ties and reliance upon American and British intelligence have not let up, therefore actions taken by the ISI should be viewed in the context of being a Central Asian outpost of Anglo-American covert intelligence operations.”The presence of “foreign looking, fair skinned” commandos who calmly gunned down dozens of people after drinking a few beers indicates that the Mumbai attacks were likely the work of the Anglo-American covert intelligence operatives, not indigenous Indian Muslims or for that matter Arab al-Qaeda terrorists. The attacks prepare the ground for the break-up of Pakistan and the furtherance of destabilizing terrorism in the Middle East and Asia. The Mumbai attacks had little to do with India or the relationship between Muslim Pakistanis and Hindu Indians.”Pakistan’s position as a strategic focal point cannot be underestimated. It borders India, Afghanistan, China and Iran,” concludes Marshall. “Destabilizing and ultimately breaking Pakistan up into several countries or regions will naturally spread chaos and destabilization into neighboring countries. This is also true of Iraq on the other side of Iran, as the Anglo-American have undertaken, primarily through Iraq, a strategy of balkanizing the entire Middle East in a new imperial project.” (See Marshall’s Divide and Conquer: The Anglo-American Imperial Project.)

Now I ask specifically: WHO HAS EGG ON THE FACE? MY DETRACTORS OR ME?

Andrew Marshall is a respected author; he is clearly saying here that terrorists looked like Anglo-American covert operatives and that the entire Mumbai operation was an attempt by Anglo-American forces to destabilize India and push it further into the Israel-US orbit. Marshall also says that Americans are keen to dismember Pakistan–it is clear that in this project, America needs India as a firm ally–it cannot afford Indo-Pak friendship at least on a long-term basis. The Mumbai attack thus was multi-layered–and one of the reasons could be to warn India that the Anglo-American elite has the power to penetrate India, with the help of its own people. Clearly, the attackers would not have come from the sea route without some kind of a connivance of Gujarat and Maharashtra Governments with the terrorists, and the connivance of RSS type Hindutva elements as I will prove later in the piece.

This afore-mentioned report appeared on the BBC, a news agency which pro-west, Muslim-haters and all NRIs love to see. NOW I ASK THESE PEOPLE: why are you adopting double standards? Now a BBC report is incovenient because it militates against your idea of what happened in Mumbai?
Even the Indian Government is aware of this reality. That is why it is not issuing statements in a hurry and that is why the kind of Islamo-phobia seen earlier after Bomb Blasts is not being seen now.
A second report is more shocking–some news channels captured it but then it went off air:

One Police officer who encountered the gunmen as they entered the Jewish Center (Nariman House) said the attackers were white. “I went into the building late last night” he said. “I got a shock because they were white. I was expecting them to look like us. They fired three shots. I fired 10 back”.

The Nariman House affair brings the Mossad angle to the fore. Two of the `hostages’ killed in the Narimam House were identified as Rabbi Gabreil Holtzberg and his wife Rivka. They ran the center as spokespersons of the Chabad Lubavitch movement.

Now the Chabad movement is one of the many sects within Israel and Judaism. But of late it has come under the Zionist influence. Now what is Zionism? A brief digression would suffice: Zionism is the political ideology of racist Jews, just like Hindutva is the political ideology of a section of `race conscious’ Hindus. Just as a majority of Sanatani Hindus have opposed Hindutva, a majority of Jews oppose Zionism and its fascist-anti-religious tone.
In opposition to the teachings of Judaism, the orthodox Jew religion, Zionists want to dominate the world; they see the `Jewish race’ as the most important, almost divine, race in the world. Zionists are opposed to democracy and even the concept of naitonhood. Zionists believe in creating murder and mayhem as a matter of policy.
In America, Zionists have entered into an alliance with the American elites–the White-Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) forces–which rule America. The reasons for this alliance lie in the way the Zionist agenda matches with that of the American corporate and WASP elite and is beyind the scope of this article.

People who do not understand Zionism will never be able to understand what happened in Mumbai.

Back to members of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement killed at Nariman House–people have asked how come the Rabbi and his wife were killed if Mossad is involved in the Mumbai terror attack?

The answer to this is being forwarded by Jewish anti-Zionist websites. They also detail the sectarian history of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement:

The attack on Mumbai spotlights the ultra-orthodox (haredi) Chabad-Lubavitch community and its international outreach network. When Chabad outreach (keruv) started in the 1950s, it seemed rather intellectually dishonest because the organization used nostalgia for a never-existent Jewish past as a hook to enmesh secular or secularized Jews in ultra-orthodox (haredi) practice as hozrim bitshuvah (returnees, sometimes improperly called baalei tshuvah), but on the whole the activity was mostly harmless in contrast with current Chabad activities, which long ago crossed the border into dangerous territory.

As the Lubavitcher organization has become larger and wealthier — partially because mobilization for keruv has brought large contributions, members have shown a propensity for corruption.
Yet, the Lubavitchers have worked closely with Jewish racists like Lawrence Summers and Alan Dershowitz in the ongoing attempt to control discourse on American campuses. The wealthy Russian Lubavitcher hozer bitshuvah Lev Leviev openly supports Zionist terrorism and settlement building in the Palestinan occupied territories. Possibly because of Leviev Chabad-Lubavitch has openly become involved in Putin’s struggles with Russian Jewish oligarchs.
Still, there is an even more sinister aspect to the Lubavitcher organization.
Because Lubavitcher outreach offices are located in some of the most important political, corporate and university centers throughout the world, the Lubavitchers have put together a network that is incomparable for corporate and international espionage as well as for the secret exchange of information. Because Chabad Houses could potentially act as safe houses, where there would be no record of a person’s stay.
Most people do not take the Lubavitchers seriously, but I have visited Chabad houses and encountered senior Israeli government or military officials (and probably intelligence agents). One can easily imagine that Neocon intelligentsia trying to develop a relationship with Hindutva (?????????) intelligentsia or politicians might have used the Chabad Nariman House as a meeting place.

Here a Jew is saying that he has visited Chabad houses and that he has seen covert operations going on and the involvement of senior Government and military officials of Israel. This Jew writer is also talking openly about a Neo-Con-Chabad-Hindutva tie-up!

The Jew writer mentions the Mossad involvement in Chabad Houses:

Because the Lubavitchers provide an unconditional welcome to all Jews in the hope of bringing them closer to the Lubavitcher way of life, the Lubavitchers have been open to potential subversion by Israeli intelligence organizations. Mossad and Shin Bet found it quite easy to penetrate the haredi community during the Yossele Affair. Jewish politics has often involved infiltration and subversion of one political group by another. The David Project Israel Advocacy organization has used its educational programs as a means to infiltrate more mainstream Jewish communal organizations with radical Islamophobes and Jabotinskian Zionists.

To Zionize haredi groups that practice outreach, the Israeli government need only give encouragement to Zionistically indoctrinated Hebrew-speaking young people to participate in outreach programs, and in a few years the targeted haredi community is thoroughly enmeshed in Zionist thinking while Israeli intelligence organizations have a new crop of saya`nim in place ready to serve in Zionist covert operations.

What is a sayanim? Go to the link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayanim and it states that “Sayanim (Hebrew: “helpers”) is a term used to describe Jews living outside Israel who volunteer to provide assistance to the Mossad.[1] This assistance includes facilitating medical care, money, logistics, and even overt intelligence gathering, yet sayanim are only paid for their expenses. No official number is known, but estimates put the number of sayanim in the thousands. The existence of this large body of volunteers is one reason why the Mossad operates with fewer case officers than fellow intelligence agencies”

Now back to the link

from which I was quoting the Jewish writer originally. He says that the Lubavitcher shluchim (outreach emissaries) Gavriel Noach and Rivka Holtzberg fit the `sayanim’ profile to a “T” — especially Rivkah.

So the two people killed in Nariman House fit the Sayanim, that is Jews outside Israel who volunteer to provide assistance to Mossad, profile!

NOW WHAT OTHER PROOF DO YOU WANT?

The Jewish writer of the afore-mentioned link himself asks the question: WOULD MOSSAD HAVE KILLED THE RABBI AND HIS WIFE IN NARIMAN HOUSE?
AND HE PROVIDES THE ANSWER:

Zionists have always used dead Jews to build sympathy for Zionist goals and as cover for Zionist crimes against humanity.

Ben-Gurion explicitly stated that he would sacrifice German Jewish children for the sake of Zionism while the Zionist leadership probably learned the benefit of sacrificing Zionist operatives from the 1946 Kielce Pogrom. In this incident (Jewish) Soviet and Zionist agents probably worked together to make sure that surviving Polish Jews chose emigration to Palestine over a return to Poland.
Because the Kielce Zionist recruiters were killed during the pogrom, the events leading up to the pogrom was rendered forever unobtainable.

Some reports of the Mumbai attack indicate that the Holtzbergs rented space to the attack planners over the past few months and thereby helped make the operation far more effective.
An opportunity to interrogate the Holtzbergs would have helped investigators immensely.

AGAIN WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?

Another piece of massive evidence: In a telephone interview with CBC News from outside the Center (Nariman House), freelance journalists Arun Asthana said that there are reports that some of the militants had stayed at a guest house there (Nariman House) for upto 15 days before the attack. “They had a huge mass of ammunition, arms and food there”, Asthana said.

Now other reports have also confirmed that a huge mass of food was ordered by the residents of the Nariman House. This food was enough for 30-40 people for several days. Why was this amount of food ordered? Also why was Nariman House not assaulted till the very last? A Gujarati Hindu resident of Mumbai came onto TV on CNN-IBN to say at around 3.30 AM or so, that for two months suspicious activities wree going in Nariman House. A lot of foreigners were seen coming in and going out. This matter was reported to the Police. But no one took action.

The CNN-IBN did not repeat the news; then it was only when the common people of Mumbai threatened to storm the Nariman House the NSG commandos were moved in–why this delay in assaulting Nariman House when only two terrorists were holed in there?
This is sheer official complicity and nothing else–AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE WHOLE NARIMAN HOUSE AFFAIR IS A MUST.

Then it was reported that ” somehow surprising to learn that the terrorists in Cama hospital in Mumbai were fluently speaking Marathi. The terrorists who are said to have fired in Cama hospital talked to an employee clad in civil dress in Marathi, reports a Marathi daily ‘Maharashtra Times’.


The newspaper said the terrorists who targeted ATS chief Hemant Karkare, police commissioner Ashok Kamte and encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar were speaking Marathi fluently.
The newspaper claims the terrorists having fired at two watchmen in uniform asked the other beside them on gunpoint in Marathi, ‘You are here an employee?’ The employee caught the legs of the terrorist and said, ‘I am not working here. My wife has suffered from heart attack and I have come here to admit her.’ The terrorist asked him again in Marathi, ‘You are speaking true or false?’ The employee answered, ‘No, by God I am speaking true.’
On this the terrorist let him go.

NOW WHAT DO WE MAKE OF THAT? Another report says that traditional Jews of Mumbai who have migrated to Israel speak fluent Marathi and are known to have been recruited by Mossad!

The death of Hemant Karkare remains a mystery. All official versions are contradictory: some say he was killed near CST, some that he died near Cama hospital, some near Metro cinema, and some that he was killed while in a Police jeep. Also, where did the bullet hit him? Some say on the neck and some near the heart. Karkare was shown on TV wearing a bullet proof vest–he could not have been shot in neck in that case, unless there was a sniper waiting for him.

Also if he was shot near heart, then when did he take out his vest? No one has even bothered to answer this question. Also, another facet is coming to light: that Karkare was killed near Cama–but Kaamte and Salaskar in the Metro shootout!

Intelligent people–what do you have to say now? It is becoming obvious that…

1. Several terrorists might have been white

2. Were they International mercanaries? If yes, then from which country? Who collected them? It is well known that Mossad and CIA have several mercenary organizations, including so-called Jihadi ones on their list. They create Jihad and manipulate Muslims disaffected by the Islamophobia in the world. Some of them might have been used in the Mumbai attack. But why were they carrying American, British, Mauritian and Malaysian passports?
3. Who were the Marathi speaking Karkare killers? The lane next to the Cama Hospital is a deserted one–it goes straight to the backyard of the Mumbai CID Headquarters. Anonymous sources in the Police have revealed that Karkare was taken there, by a joint team of anti-Karkare, pro-Hindutva Mumbai Police officers, and Chota Rajan men. Now Karkare was opposed to Chota Rajan. Salaskar was anti-Pradeep Sharma, another Mumbai senior Police officer now in jail, for working as Rajan’s shooter. So the Marathi speaking terrorists could either have been Jews with some connection to Mumbai–or hired killers of the Hindutva brigade or men of Chota Rajan.
4. It seems that several things went on simultaneously–the Mahrashtra Chief Minister Vilas Rao Deshmukh was in Kerala when the Mumbai attack began at 9.30 PM on 26th November. Then by 11PM Deshmukh had informed the Home Minister Shivraj Patil–the latter has started proceedings to send the NSG Commandos. So Deshmukh knew about what was happening by 11PM–then why was there no Mumbai Police on various locations between 9.30 and 1am, the time when Karkare arrived? The Mumbai ATS is a separate organization. it does not lead the Mumbai Police. So the 40,000 strong Mumbai Police was absent from the scene of action between 11pm to 1am and then Karkare arrived and he was killed along with his men!
Isn’t there something fishy here? Obviously the Mumbai Police was kept deliberately away between 11pm and 1am, the time period when terrorists were killing people merrily. Then Karkare must have been told–and he went there expecting Mumbai police personals to be there–but there were none or only a few! And he was killed!

Another Theocracy in the Heart of the Muslim World

by Uri Avnery

I am fed up with all this nonsense about recognizing Israel as the Jewish state.

It is based on a collection of hollow phrases and vague definitions, devoid of any real content. It serves many different purposes, almost all of them malign.

Benjamin Netanyahu uses it as a trick to obstruct the establishment of the Palestinian state. This week he declared that the conflict just has no solution. Why? Because the Palestinians do not agree to recognize, etc., etc.

Four rightist members of the Knesset have just submitted a bill empowering the government to refuse to register new NGOs and to dissolve existing ones if they deny the Jewish character of the state.

This new bill is only one of a series designed to curtail the civil rights of Arab citizens, as well as those of leftists.

If the late Dr. Samuel Johnson were living in present-day Israel, he would phrase his famous dictum about patriotism differently: Recognition of the Jewish character of the state is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

In Israeli parlance, denying the Jewish character of the state is tantamount to the worst of all political felonies: to claim that Israel is a state of all its citizens.

To a foreigner, this may sound a bit weird. In a democracy, the state clearly belongs to all its citizens. Mention this in the United States, and you are stating the obvious. Mention this in Israel, and you are treading dangerously close to treason. (So much for our much-vaunted common values.)

As a matter of fact, Israel is indeed a state of all its citizens. All adult Israeli citizensand only theyhave the right to vote for the Knesset. The Knesset appoints the government and determines the laws. It has enacted many laws declaring that Israel is a Jewish and democratic state. In ten or in a hundred years, the Knesset could hoist the flag of Catholicism, Buddhism, or Islam. In a democracy, it is the citizens who are sovereign, not a verbal formula.

What formula? one may well ask.

The courts favor the words Jewish and democratic state. But that is far from being the only definition around.

The most widely used is just Jewish state. But that is not enough for Netanyahu and Co., who speak about the nation-state of the Jewish people, which has a nice 19th-century ring. The state of the Jewish people is also quite popular.

The one thing that all these brand -names have in common is that they are perfectly imprecise. What does Jewish mean? A nationality, a religion, a tribe? Who are the Jewish people? Or, even more vague, the Jewish nation? Does this include the congressmen who enact the laws of the United States? Or the cohorts of Jews who are in charge of U.S. Middle East policy? Which country does the Jewish ambassador of the UK in Tel Aviv represent?

The courts have been wrestling with the question: where is the border between Jewish and democratic? What does democratic mean in this context? Can a Jewish state really be democratic, or, for that matter, can a democratic state really be Jewish? All the answers given by learned judges and renowned professors are contrived, or, as we say in Hebrew, they stand on chickens legs.

Lets go back to the beginning: the book written in German by Theodor Herzl, the founding father of Zionism, and published in 1896. He called it Der Judenstaat.

Unfortunately, this is a typical German word that is untranslatable. It is generally rendered in English as The Jewish State or The State of the Jews. Both are quite false. The nearest approximation would be The Jewstate.

If this sounds slightly anti-Semitic, this is not by accident. It may come as a shock to many, but the word was not invented by Herzl. It was first used by a Prussian nobleman with an impressive name Friedrich August Ludwig von der Marwitzwho died 23 years before Herzl was even born. He was a dedicated anti-Semite long before another German invented the term anti-Semitism as an expression of the healthy German spirit.

Marwitz, an ultra-conservative general, objected to the liberal reforms proposed at the time. In 1811 he warned that these reforms would turn Prussia into a Judenstaat, a Jewstate. He did not mean that Jews were about to become a majority in Prussia, God forbid, but that moneylenders and other shady Jewish dealers would corrupt the character of the country and wipe out the good old Prussian virtues.

Herzl himself did not dream of a state that belongs to all the Jews in the world. Quite the contraryhis vision was that all real Jews would go to the Judenstaat (whether in Argentina or Palestine, he had not yet decided). Theyand only theywould thenceforth remain Jews. All the others would become assimilated in their host nations and cease altogether to be Jews.

Far, far indeed from the notion of a nation-state of the Jewish people as envisioned by many of todays Zionists, including those millions who do not dream of immigrating to Israel.

When I was a boy, I took part in dozens of demonstrations against the British government of Palestine. In all of them, we chanted in unison Free immigration! Hebrew state! I dont remember a single demonstration with the slogan Jewish state.

That was quite natural. Without anyone decreeing it, we made a clear distinction between us Hebrew-speaking people in Palestine and the Jews in the Diaspora. Some of us turned this into an ideology, but for most people it was just a natural expression of reality: Hebrew agriculture and Jewish tradition, Hebrew underground and Jewish religion, Hebrew kibbutz and Jewish shtetl. Hebrew Yishuv (the new community in the country) and Jewish Diaspora. To be called a Diaspora Jew was the ultimate insult.

For us this was not anti-Zionist by any means. Quite the contrary: Zionism wanted to create an old-new nation in Eretz Israel (as Palestine is called in Hebrew), and this nation was of course quite distinct from the Jews elsewhere. It was only the Holocaust, with its huge emotional impact, that changed the verbal rules.

So how did the formula Jewish state creep in? In 1917, in the middle of World War I, the British government issued the so-called Balfour Declaration, which proclaimed that His Majestys Government views with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.

Every word was carefully chosen, after months of negotiations with Zionist leaders. One of the main British objects was to win American and Russian Jews for the Allied cause. Revolutionary Russia was about to get out of the war, and the entry of isolationist America was essential.

(By the way, the British rejected the words the turning of Palestine into a national home for the Jewish people, insisting on in Palestinethus foreshadowing the partition of the country.)

In 1947 the UN did decide to partition Palestine between its Arab and Jewish populations. This said nothing about the character of the two future statesit just used the current definitions of the two warring parties. About 40 percent of the population in the territory allocated to the Jewish state was Arab.

The advocates of the Jewish state make much of the sentence in the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel (generally called the Declaration of Independence) which indeed includes the words Jewish state. After quoting the UN resolution which called for a Jewish and an Arab state, the declaration continues: Accordingly we on the strength of the resolution of the United Nations General Assembly, hereby declare the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel, to be known as the state of Israel.

This sentence says nothing at all about the character of the new state, and the context is purely formal.

One of the paragraphs of the declaration (in its original Hebrew version) speaks about the Hebrew people: We extend our hands to all neighboring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighborliness, and appeal to them to establish bonds of cooperation and mutual help with the independent Hebrew people in its land. This sentence is blatantly falsified in the official English translation, which changed the last words into the sovereign Jewish people settled in its own land.

As a matter of fact, it would have been quite impossible to reach agreement on any ideological formula, since the declaration was signed by the leaders of all factions, from the anti-Zionist ultra-Orthodox to the Moscow-oriented Communist Party.

Any talk about the Jewish state leads inevitably to the question: What are the Jewsa nation or a religion?

Official Israeli doctrine says that Jewish is both a national and a religious definition. The Jewish collective, unlike any other, is both national and religious. With us, nation and religion are one and the same.

The only door of entry to this collective is religious. There is no national door.

Hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish Russian immigrants have come to Israel under the Law of Return with their Jewish relatives. This law is very broad. In order to attract the Jews, it allows even distant non-Jewish relatives to come with them, including the spouse of the grandchild of a Jew. Many of these non-Jews want to be Jews in order to be considered full Israelis, but have tried in vain to be accepted. Under Israeli law, a Jew is a person born to a Jewish mother or converted, who has not adopted another religion. This is a purely religious definition. Jewish religious law says that for this purpose, only the mother, not the father, counts.

It is extremely difficult to be converted in Israel. The rabbis demand that the convert fulfill all 613 commandments of the Jewish religionwhich only very few recognized Israelis do. But one cannot become an official member of the stipulated Jewish nation by any other door. One becomes a part of the American nation by accepting U.S. citizenship. Nothing like that exists here.

We have an ongoing battle about this in Israel. Some of us want Israel to be an Israeli state, belonging to the Israeli people, indeed a state of all its citizens. Some want to impose on us the religious law supposedly fixed by God for all times on Mount Sinai some 3,200 years ago and abolish all contrary laws of the democratically elected Knesset. Many dont want any change at all.

But how, in Gods name (sorry), does this concern the Palestinians? Or the Icelanders, for that matter?

The demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the Jewish state or as the nation-state of the Jewish people is preposterous.

As the British would put it, its none of their bloody business. It would be tantamount to an intervention in the internal affairs of another country.

But a friend of mine has suggested a simple way out: the Knesset can simply resolve to change the name of the state into something like The Jewish Republic of Israel, so that any peace agreement between Israel and the Arab State of Palestine will automatically include the demanded recognition.

This would also bring Israel into line with the state it most resembles: The Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which came into being almost at the same time, after the partition of India, after a gruesome mutual massacre, after the creation of a huge refugee problem, and with a perpetual border war in Kashmir. And the nuclear bomb, of course.

Many Israelis would be shocked by the comparison. What, us? Similar to a theocratic state? Are we getting closer to the Pakistani model and further from the American one?

What the hell, lets simply deny it!

Is Adolf Hitler Really the Founding Father of Israel?

 by Johnny Punish
In The Transfer Agreement, Edwin Black’s compelling award-winning story of a negotiated arrangement in 1933 between Zionist organizations and the Nazis to transfer some 50,000 Jews, and $100 million of their assets to Jewish Palestine in exchange for stopping the worldwide Jewish-led boycott threatening to topple the Hitler regime in its first year, exposes historical truth.
This truth threatens to destablize modern Zionism’s stranglehold on the mainstream media propaganda that, in 2011, continues to suffocate U.S. Citizens and the world with “guilt” appeals and billions of US taxpayer “aid” dollars given each year to a state that neither has the best interest of the American people nor the best interests of it’s own indigenous populations that the Zionist so-called democracy claims to represent.
Join with me as we  follow the historical journey of Edwin Black as his travels into the truth that was the movement of German Jews into Palestine and their subsequent conquest of the indigenious Palestinian people.
On August 7, 1933, leaders of the Zionist movement concluded a controversial pact with the Third Reich which, in its various forms, transferred some 60,000 Jews and $100 million– almost $800 million in 1984 dollars– to Jewish Palestine. In return, Zionists would halt the worldwide Jewish-led anti-nazi boycott that threatened to topple the Hitler regime in its first year. Ultimately, the Transfer Agreement saved lives, rescued assets, and seeded the infrastructure of the Jewish State.
Fiery debates instantly ignited throughout the pre-War Jewish world as rumors of the pact leaked out. The acrimony was rekindled in 1984 with the original publication of The Transfer Agreement and has never stopped.
Understanding the painful process and the agonizing decisions taken by Jewish leadership requires a journey. This journey will not be a comfortable one with clear-cut concepts and landmarks. The facts, as they unfold, will challenge your sense of the period, break your heart, and try your ethics… just as it did for those in 1933 who struggled to identify the correct path through a Fascist minefield and away from the conflagration that awaited European Jewry.
To discover The Transfer Agreement, Edwin Black took that journey.

YouTube – Veterans Today –
His journey began in 1978 when a small bank of misfits preaching nazism and waving swastikas decided to march through the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of Skokie. Suddenly an unimportant group of bigots provoked an important controversy. The outraged community was determined either to prevent the march or to confront the neo-nazis on the parade route. Many Skokie residents were Holocaust survivors and remembered well that only fifty years before, Hitler’s circle had also started as a small band of social misfits. The Jewish community would not ignore an attempt to reintroduce the nazi concept–no matter how feeble the source.
But establishment Jewish leaders counseled Jews to shutter their windows and pay no attention. And a Jewish attorney from the American Civil Liberties Union rose reluctantly to champion the neo-nazis’ right to freedom of expression–over the survivors’ right to be left alone. In covering the issue as a young journalist and reacting to the crisis as a Jew and the son of Holocaust survivors, he was confused by the response of Jewish leaders.
To prepare for a Chicago Reader interview with the Jewish ACLU attorney representing the neo-nazis, he spoke with Jewish scholar Rabbi Byron Sherwin. He told Edwin Black there were many enigmas about the Jewish response to nazism, one of which was a long-rumored arrangement between the Third Reich and the Zionist Organization involving the transfer of German Jewish assets to Palestine. He added that little was known about the arrangement, if it indeed existed.

Author Edwin Black

Edwin Black couldn’t believe what he had heard. The possibility of a Zionist-nazi arrangement for the sake of Israel was inconceivable for a person of his background.  His mother, as a girl, had been pushed by her mother through the vent of a boxcar on the way to the Treblinka death camp. She was shot by nazi soldiers and buried in a shallow mass grave.  His father had stepped out of line during a long march to a destiny with death. While hiding in the woods, he came upon a leg protruding from the snow. This was his mother.
Together, by night and by courage, these two Polish teenagers survived in the forest for two years. When the war was over, they cautiously emerged from the woods believing that nearly all Jews may have been exterminated–except them. The question for them was whether there was still any use being “Jewish.” And yet–believing themselves to be among the last of their people–they decided to live on, as Jews, and never forget.
Quickly, his parents learned that others had survived, although almost none from their families. They resettled in the United States.
Edwin Black was born in Chicago, raised in Jewish neighborhoods, and his parents tried never to speak of their experience. Like the other children of Holocaust survivors, his life was overshadowed by his family’s tragedy. And, like other Jews, he saw the State of Israel as the salvation and redemption of the remnant of the Jewish people.  He had spent time on a kibbutz and returned to Israel several times after that. For years, he considered emigrating to Israel. The very meaning of Israel was a deep motivation in his life.
Yet there were incongruities he could never understand. Everywhere he looked in Israel, he saw German equipment. The icons of nazi commerce– Mercedes, Grundig, Siemens, Krupp–were thriving in the Jewish State, even as the ban on Wagner’s music was strictly enforced. And so many families were German Jews who had come to Israel during the Hitler era. For a year, he filed Rabbi Sherwin’s rumor in a mental box of imponderables. He had said many times that the most important rule in approaching the Holocaust is that nothing makes sense. And yet  he needed to make sense out of it.  If  he could, then perhaps there was a reason his mother and father had lived, while six million had died.
Working through the staff and resources of Spertus College of Judaica, he was able to obtain some rare Hebrew and German materials that documented in skeletal form that the arrangement indeed existed. After a great deal of personal anguish, he made his decision.

Indigenous Women Suffering From Zionist Bulldozing of Home in Modern Day Palestinian Terror-Tory

When he told his parents, his mother threatened to disown him and my father threatened to personally strangle him if he dared lend any credence to the notion of nazi-Zionist cooperation. This was done against a background of rising anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli attempts to somehow link the nazi regime with Zionists.
When he later showed his parents a hundred-page summary of his proposed book, his mother cried and said, “now I understand what I could never understand. Write the book.”
His father, who fought in the war as a Zionist Betar partisan, also gave him his blessing with the simple words: “Go write the book.”
His agent said he thought there was only one editor with the stamina to take on this book. That man was Edward T. Chase, editor-in-chief of new York Times Books, a man with preeminent credentials in WWII and Holocaust books.
Chase read the proposal and said yes.
He spent the next several years traveling through Germany, Israel, England, and the United States, locating forgotten files in archives, scouring newspapers of the era, interviewing principals, and surveying government papers. Millions of microfilm frames of captured nazi documents had never been analyzed. Boxes of boycott papers had never been organized. Worse, he found that little had been written about Hitler’s first year–1933.
For months, the information confounded Edwin Black;  nothing made sense. There were so many contradictions; nazis promoting Jewish nationalism. American Jewish leaders refusing even to criticize the Third Reich. Principal players who said one thing in public and did the opposite in private. Everything was upside down. And historians of the period told me they were equally confused about what had really occurred.
Finally Edwin Black was able to piece the information together and reconstruct events.
To do so, he had to clear his mind of preconceived notions and stare at the situation through the eyes of those who lived through it. And yet, after all the researching and reading and writing,his intense inner attachment to the Zionist concept and Jewish nationalism and the State of Israel only deepened. That’s because he had finally made sense of it. And anyone who does will understand Zionism for what it is: a national movement, with the rights and wrongs, the ethics and expediencies, found in any other national movement.
The Jews were the first to recognize the Hitler threat and the first to react to that threat.
The fact they were foiled by their own disunity merely puts them in the company of all mankind.

  • Who did not confront the Hitler menace with indecision?
  • Who did not seal pacts of expediency with the Third Reich?

The Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, and the Supreme Moslem Council all endorsed the Hitler regime. The United States, England, France, Italy, Russia, Argentina, Japan, Ireland, Poland, and dozens of other nations all signed friendship and trade treaties and knowingly contributed to German economic and military recovery. The international banking and commercial community–no less than the Zionists–saw Germany as indispensable to its salvation. The Zionists were indeed in the company of all mankind–with this exception: The Jews were the only ones with a gun to their heads.
Hitler was not unique; he was organized. But among Hitler’s enemies, none were organized–except the Zionists. The world recognized the Hitler threat and hoped it would not arrive. The Zionists recognized the Hitler threat and always expected it. The events of the Hitler era and the Transfer Agreement were ultimately determined by those factors.
Edwin Black ’s belief in the Jewish people, in American Jewish organizations, in Zionism, and in the State of Israel and its founding mothers and fathers was never shaken. Those who sense outrage or anger in his words are hearing but the echo of their agony.

Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid?

YouTube – Veterans Today –
Suppressing free and open discussion on any subject is as bad as telling lies, and knowingly suppressing the truth is the biggest lie of all, because it is based, not on a mistake or a genuine error, but on a deliberate intention to deceive. Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible. Yet Höss’s conviction has stood, by inference, as a testament to the cruelty of Germans in general, since he was tried at Nuremberg, in 1947, and subsequently hanged on April 16th, 1947, in Poland. With great respect for those who have tried—though harassed, punished, fined, imprisoned and otherwise abused—to tell it like it really was: Arthur R. Butz, Robert Faurisson, Paul Grubach, Gerd Honsik, David Irving, Kevin Käther, Nicholas Kollerstrom, Fred Leuchter, Horst Mahler, Ingrid Rimland, Germar Rudolf, Bradley Smith, Sylvia Stolz, Fredrick Töbin, Ernst Zündel and many others.

Today in Endless War

BY GLENN GREENWALD
As usual, there are multiple events from just the last 24 hours vividly highlighting the nature of America’s ongoing — and escalating — posture of Endless War:
(1) In December, 2009, President Obama spoke at West Point and, while announcing his decision to (yet again) deploy more troops to Afghanistan, he assured the nation in a much-heralded vow that “after 18 months, our troops will begin to come home.”  He repeated that claim in May, 2010, prompting headlines declaring that Obama has set July, 2011 (four months before the election) as the target date for when ”withdrawal” from Afghanistan will begin.  Now we’re less than two weeks away from that target, and The New York Times today makes clearwhat “withdrawal” actually means:

President Obama plans to announce his decision on the scale and pace of troop withdrawals from Afghanistan in a speech on Wednesday evening . . . Mr. Obama is considering options that range from a Pentagon-backed proposal to pull out only 5,000 troops this year to an aggressive plan to withdraw within 12 months all 30,000 troops the United States deployed to Afghanistan as part of the surge in December 2009.. . . .
Even after all 30,000 troops are withdrawn, roughly 68,000 troops will remain in Afghanistan, twice the number as when Mr. Obama assumed office.

So even under the most “aggressive” withdrawal plan the President is considering — one that he and media outlets will undoubtedly tout as a “withdrawal plan” (the headline on the NYT front page today: “Obama to Announce Plans for Afghan Pullout”) — there will still be “twice the number” of American troops in that country as there were when George Bush left office and Obama was inaugurated.  That’s what “withdrawal” means in American political parlance: doubling the number of troops fighting a foreign war over the course of four years.

(2) So frivolous and lawless are Obama’s excuses for waging war in Libya in violation of the War Powers Resolution that they have provoked incredibly harsh condemnations even from those who typically defend the President.  In The Washington Post today, Eugene Robinsonaggressively denounces Obama’s arguments for waging war without Congress:

Let’s be honest: President Obama’s claim that U.S. military action in Libya doesn’t constitute “hostilities” is nonsense, and Congress is right to call him on it.
Blasting dictator Moammar Gaddafi’s troops and installations from above with unmanned drone aircraft may or may not be the right thing to do, but it’s clearly a hostile act. Likewise, providing intelligence, surveillance and logistical support that enable allied planes to attack Gaddafi’s military — and, increasingly, to target Gaddafi himself — can only be considered hostile. These are acts of war.
Yet Obama, with uncommon disregard for both language and logic, takes the position that what we are doing in Libya does not reach the “hostilities” threshold for triggering the War Powers Act, under which presidents must seek congressional approval for any military campaign lasting more than 90 days. House Speaker John Boehner said Obama’s claim doesn’t meet the “straight-face test,” and he’s right. . . .
Most important, what are we doing there? Are we in Libya for altruistic or selfish reasons? Principles or oil? Assuming Gaddafi is eventually deposed or killed, then what? Do we just sail away? Or will we be stuck with yet another ruinously expensive exercise in nation building?
There’s also a moral question to consider. The advent of robotic drone aircraft makes it easier to wage war without suffering casualties. But without risk, can military action even be called war? Or is it really just slaughter?

Afghan War advocate Andrew Exum similarly condemns Obama’s attempt to justify violation of the WPR as “simply one of the stupidest things I’ve read in some time” and — echoing Robinson — proclaims that “it does not pass the laugh test.”  And in The New York Times, Yale Law Professor Bruce Ackerman explains that, through their lawyer-cherry-picking, “the White House has shattered the traditional legal process the executive branch has developed to sustain the rule of law over the past 75 years,” and adds:

From a moral perspective, there is a significant difference between authorizing torture and continuing a bombing campaign that may save thousands of Libyans from slaughter by Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. But from a legal viewpoint, Mr. Obama is setting an even worse precedent.
Although Mr. Yoo’s memos made a mockery of the applicable law, they at least had the approval of the Office of Legal Counsel. In contrast, Mr. Obama’s decision to disregard that office’s opinion and embrace the White House counsel’s view is undermining a key legal check on arbitrary presidential power.

And it’s always worth recalling that this is being done by a President who made restoration of “the rule of law” a centerpiece of his campaign.

(3) In Mother JonesNYU Law School’s Karen Greenberg notes a trend that was as predictable as it is destructive: rather than signal an end to the “War on Terror,” the killing of Osama bin Laden has been seized upon by the bipartisan National Security State — led by the Obama administration — to expand its posture of Endless War and accelerateits assault on civil liberties.  Citing multiple examples subsequent to the bin Laden killing, she correctly observes:

The Obama administration and Congress have interpreted the killing of al-Qaeda’s leader as a virtual license to double downon every “front” in the war on terror. . . . One thing could not be doubted. The administration was visibly using the bin Laden moment to renew George W. Bush’s Global War on Terror(even if without that moniker). . . . In other words, Washington now seems to be engaged in a wholesale post-bin Laden ratification of business as usual, but this time on steroids.

One of the more absurd (though, as a matter of hope, understandable) claims I’ve heard in quite awhile was that the killing of bin Laden would trigger a reduction in the abuses of the War on Terror — as though bin Laden was truly the cause of those abuses rather than the pretext for them.  The morning after the bin Laden killing, I wrote the following, addressing those optimistically proclaiming its likely benefits:

Are we going to fight fewer wars or end the ones we’ve started? Are we going to see a restoration of some of the civil liberties which have been eroded at the altar of this scary Villain Mastermind? Is the War on Terror over? Are we Safer now?
Those are rhetorical questions. None of those things will happen. If anything, I can much more easily envision the reverse. Whenever America uses violence in a way that makes its citizens cheer, beam with nationalistic pride, and rally around their leader, more violence is typically guaranteed. Futile decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan may temporarily dampen the nationalistic enthusiasm for war, but two shots to the head of Osama bin Laden — and the We are Great and Good proclamations it engenders — can easily rejuvenate that war love. One can already detect the stench of that in how Pakistan is being talked about: did they harbor bin Laden as it seems and, if so, what price should they pay? We’re feeling good and strong about ourselves again — and righteous — and that’s often the fertile ground for more, not less, aggression.

Read Greenberg’s piece, including the numerous examples she examines, to see if there’s any doubt that this is exactly what is happening.

(4) The war in Libya is starting to resemble virtually every other war: commenced with claimed humanitarian justifications; supported by well-meaning people convinced by the stated, official objectives; hailed as a short and easy task (“days, not weeks”); and then warped into a bloody, protracted conflict far from the original claims and without any real end in sight.  Earlier this week, one of the war’s most vocal supporters, Juan Cole, produced a list he entitled “Top Ten Mistakes in the Libya War,” including Obama’s failure to get Congressional approval, that “NATO has focused on a ‘shock and awe’ strategy of pounding the capital, Tripoli,” and that “NATO put its emphasis on taking out command and control in the capital instead of vigorously protecting civilian cities under attack.”
Perhaps that’s because “vigorously protecting civilians” was the pretext for the war, not the actual aim.  Yesterday, NATO admitted it killed multiple civilians — apparently including children — by bombing a house in a residential area.  It’s difficult to know exactly how many civilians NATO has killed thus far because Western armies don’t count their victims and the Gadaffi government’s claims are obviously unreliable, but whatever is true — including the fact that such killings are not intended –  they are the inevitable by-product of invading and bombing other countries.  The logic of war ensures that almost every conflict becomes more and more about such killing and less and less about the original lofty excuses for why they were started.
It’s thus not a surprise that 39 neocons – hilariously calling themselves“foreign policy experts” (including John Podhoretz, Liz Cheney, Gary Bauer, Marty Peretz, Karl Rove, Marc Theissen, and Bill Kristol) — issued a letter yesterday urging steadfast support for (and escalation of) the Libya War. Lofty justifications notwithstanding, this is exactly what they favor: long-term, endless domination of the Muslim world through military force and control over their governments.  That’s what the war in Libya, intended or not, has become.

(5) Perhaps most amazingly of all, this policy of Endless War endures even as official Washington inexorably plans — in the midst of still-booming economic inequality and suffering — to slash entitlements in the name of austerity.  Bizarrely, while more and more Republicans continue to recognize the growing foreign policy split in their Party (Ross Douthatand Joe Scarborough are the latest to side with the “isolationists” against the war-mongering neocons), many establishment liberals seem to be laying the groundwork for those cuts.  Yesterday, Matt Yglesias said he was ”disillusioned” by alarmism over vast income inequality because, he assured everyone, things aren’t particularly good for the super-rich; meanwhile Digby – in a piece highly worth reading – examines how some liberal pundits (her example is Ezra Klein) seem to be doing the GOP’s work (and, more significantly, the White House’s) in justifying entitlement cuts.

Still Seeking Justice for Those Who Died at Guantanamo: Two Letters on Father’s Day

[Talal Al-Zahrani and his son Yasser Al-Zahrani. Yasser was 22 when he died at Guantanamo in 2006. Image from Center for Constitutional Rights.] [Talal Al-Zahrani and his son Yasser Al-Zahrani. Yasser was 22 when he died at Guantanamo in 2006. Image from Center for Constitutional Rights.]
This month marks five years since three men who were never charged with any crime died in US custody at Guantánamo under circumstances that remain unexplained and that were never independently investigated. The men’s names were Yasser Al-Zahrani, Salah Al-Salami, and Mani Al-Utaybi, and they reportedly died on June 9 or 10, 2006. The military has persistently maintained that their deaths were suicides by hanging. Rear Admiral Harry Harris, commander of Guantánamo at the time, shamefully called them “acts of asymmetrical warfare waged against us,” while a State Department official characterized them as a “good PR move.”
However, as investigative journalist Scott Horton revealed in his award-winning article in Harper’s Magazine last year, eye-witness accounts from four decorated soldiers stationed at the base strongly suggest that the government covered up the actual cause and circumstances of the deaths, and that the men did not die in their own cells by their own hands, but at the hands of government officials at a secret site in Guantánamo. Moreover, as Horton also documents, independent pathologists in Switzerland and Saudi Arabia who performed autopsies on the men’s corpses—once these were released by the US military—noted that they bore marks of trauma and were missing various body parts including neck organs and the throat, which are critical to determining the cause of death. Both pathologists contacted the American authorities responsible for the initial autopsy at Guantánamo with questions and requested the missing body parts. Like the families of the men, they have never been contacted by US authorities or received any answers.
Not only have both the Bush and Obama administrations failed to conduct a full and independent criminal investigation into these deaths, but they have worked to block the families of the dead from even having their day in court. As I have previously written, last autumn the DC District Court dismissed Al-Zahrani v. Rumsfeld, a civil lawsuit brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR)—the human rights organization at which I work—in an effort to secure answers for the families of the dead and ensure that those responsible are held accountable. Obama administration lawyers, like the earlier Bush attorneys, argued that no court should even review the evidence and facts of the case, but should instead dismiss it given that responsible officials would have immunity even if they had committed the alleged abuses and caused the three men’s deaths. Government attorneys also cited national security considerations as a basis for dismissing the case and argued that federal courts lack legal jurisdiction over any foreigners in US custody designated as “enemy combatants.” This position effectively grants the government the power to arbitrarily label a foreign citizen as an “enemy combatant,” torture or kill that individual, and then cover it up, without any legal accountability whatsoever.
It should continue to stun people—and inspire protest and resistance—that US courts have so far accepted the government’s position with regards to this particular case, and more broadly have consistently relied on “special factors,” “state secrets,” and “political question” doctrines to dismiss cases brought before them about US torture and abuse. Not once in the past decade has a court decided to evaluate the actual facts of a case alleging torture, or rule on the legality of torturing individuals in offshore detention.
Six days ago, CCR appealed the District Court’s decision on behalf of the families of two of the three men who died. CCR attorney Pardiss Kebriaei said, “The new evidence with which we are trying to re-open this case does not result from any wild speculations from the families of the dead, or their attorneys, or a journalist. It comes from the eye-witness accounts of four soldiers who were compelled to come forward by their consciences, out of a sense of duty, and at great personal and professional risk.” She continued, “In this context, where the only people who know the truth are our clients’ dead sons and individuals within the government, the information these four men have brought forward is critical. It must give the families of the dead a chance to reopen their case. It is shameful that this information hasn’t been given greater consideration by the court.”
Days after the three deaths in 2006, nine British citizens who had been detained at Guantánamo and knew the deceased expressed that they did not believe the men had committed suicide. One of them, Tarek Dergoul, who is now back home in England, recently told me, “I knew Yasser, Salah and Mani personally, for a long period of time, and I knew of their deep will to resist being broken by Guantánamo and to live. These were beautiful men, and Yasser and Mani used to sing songs and recite poetry to lift the spirits of the other detained men. They always fought for the rights of all of us to be free from the abuses we were tormented with, and they were repeatedly subjected to harsh treatment because of this. I have never believed these men committed suicide as the government claims.” Several other formerly detained men have also independently expressed that they do not believe the three 2006 deaths were suicides.
Today is Father’s Day in the United States and other countries around the world, and I promised two men whose loved ones were among the three who died that June night in Guantánamo that I would share the statements they each composed for this day, reflecting on their families’ dead sons. The first is from Talal Al-Zahrani, Yasser’s father. The second is from Nashwan Al-Salami; he is Salah’s brother and writes in the absence of their father who died without ever receiving any answers about how his son died at Guantánamo.
I hope that readers will not only learn and tell the story of what happened to these men, but also demand that the Department of Justice both conduct an independent investigation into their deaths and also change course from the government’s policy of attempting to block every torture and abuse case, including Al-Zahrani v. Rumsfeld, from proceeding. (See CCR’s webpage here about contacting the Department of Justice, and see this factsheet to learn more about Guantánamo today.)
A Father’s Day Letter from Talal Al-Zahrani: “I address you as a grieving father who is haunted by questions about how my son died in US custody”
Dear readers,
Today is Father’s Day in the United States and in various countries around the globe, and today I mourn my son’s death anew, as I and my family have done with every new dawn since his unexplained death in US custody at Guantánamo in June 2006.
I address you as a grieving father who is haunted by questions about how my son died in US custody, and who knows my family, like all families facing such a nightmarish state, deserves answers. My son Yasser was a 17 year old boy when he was taken to Guantánamo and 22 years old when he died there, never having been charged with any crime and on a list of detained men slated for release. The US government has claimed that Yasser and two of his friends committed suicide, despite all the evidence that has surfaced to the contrary, including first-hand testimonies by four Guantánamo prison guards who make clear that what they saw contradicts the official story, and despite the clear marks of torture and abuse that I saw on my son’s body with my own eyes, once he was finally returned to me, broken and dead.
I have waited for five years for recognition of my loss and for meaningful answers to my questions about how my son died, but no one in the US government has ever contacted me. Not when my son died, not in response to my questions afterwards, and not to this day. US officials did not even have the courtesy of telling me that my son had died in their hands; I was delivered this shocking and colossal blow through a family member who learned of it over the television news.
So far the US government has not only failed to properly investigate my son Yasser’s death but is also attempting to block an investigation and review of the facts by the courts. This is incredibly painful for me, my wife, our other children, and all who knew and loved Yasser. The Center for Constitutional Rights has recently appealed the lower court’s decision to side with the government and not even hear our case, and my deep hope is that the US justice system acts as it should in a democratic society and helps bring closure to my family.
I also hope that every American parent might have the compassion and empathy to imagine themselves in my shoes, and does what they can to help secure accountability for my son’s death. I hope they tell his story and demand answers from their courts and government. I believe that a bond of solidarity between parents, and between all people, can emerge when we are our most compassionate and best selves. And I know that there are American people who believe this too. I hope they will act to ensure that their courts and government do not make a mockery of their most cherished ideals.
For the last two and a half years of my son’s life, my family was not allowed any communication with him, and US authorities never allowed us any meaningful communication during the more than four years he spent at Guantánamo. This was another layer of torture inflicted on our son, and it was torture for us.
Now death has cut my young son Yasser off from us for the duration of our lives, and his mother and I are forced to confront this horrible reality every day, each time we open our eyes and realize, again, that he is not with us.  I often wake up in the middle of the night and go from my bed to my son’s bed, missing him and thinking I can find him sleeping there, only to relive the nightmare of his loss. When my wife passes by Yasser’s room, she too cannot help but feel that he can’t be gone and that he will return, while at the same time suffering with the knowledge that it will not be so. My wife and I often sit on our son’s bed together, and remember him.
Yasser was smart and young and so very alive. He was open to life, open-minded, and hopeful about the world. He loved to play soccer and to make friends, and he wanted to learn about the world and to help people.
My wife and I will not see Yasser again, except for in our dreams, where he has been with us all this time.
No one can bring our son Yasser back to us, but I fervently hope that another Father’s Day does not arrive without answers and recognition for his loss. Whatever ultimately happens in the courts, I count on all of you to remember him and press for justice for all who have been tortured in US detention sites.
Sincerely,
Talal Al-Zahrani
Father of Yasser Al-Zahrani
A Father’s Day Letter from Nashwan Al-Salami: “My father died with the grief of having lost a son, and of never having been afforded any sort of closure about his son’s death”
In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
I address this letter to the American people and all who seek justice and its implementation on the face of this earth. It is Father’s Day in the United States, and for me it is a sad day as I write in lieu of my father who died without having received any meaningful answer about how his son, my brother Salah Eddine Ali Abdullah Al-Salami, died at Guantánamo.
My brother Salah died at Guantánamo when he was thirty seven years old. The US government claims that he committed suicide. No one who really knew him believes this, and there was never a full and independent investigation into his death or that of the two other men who died in US custody on the same night. Also, the Swiss pathologist who handled the examination of my brother’s corpse confirmed that there is strong evidence that Salah was killed and did not commit suicide. Questions were sent to the US government about this, but to this day we have not received any response.
The US government has attempted to block judicial inquiry and review of my brother’s case, which is handled by the Center for Constitutional Rights, an American human rights organization. The same US authorities who profess to be the guardians of justice and democracy all over the world have refused to conduct any real investigation or render accountability for my brother’s death. For five years the US government and courts have only blocked my family’s efforts to know the truth about how my brother died.
These authorities do not realize that they lose credibility with every day they delay answering to the families of the men who died at Guantánamo, families whose hearts ache with grief.
I appeal to all people who care about justice—as understood by all human beings and enshrined by every faith—to do everything in their power to make it a reality, so that all the world’s nations can live in peace.
My father died with the grief of having lost a son, and of never having been afforded any sort of closure about his son’s death. On this Father’s Day, I wish for a different fate for myself and others who loved Salah, and for a time in which no father or person has to suffer what my family has suffered.
Thank you,
Nashwan Ali Abdullah Al-Salami
Salah’s Brother
