What I Heard LAX Security Officials Say During the 9/11 Attacks
Note by David Ray Griffin: In August of 2005, I was contacted by Charles E. Lewis, a resident of the greater Los Angeles area. He told me of important conversations he had heard at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) on the morning of 9/11. I asked him to write up his account and email it to me. On August 5, he sent me a statement, based on notes he had written in 2001, entitled “My Observation of LAX APO Security Events on 9/11.” It was an anonymous statement, in which Lewis identified himself merely as someone involved with security at LAX, because he wanted to protect his security clearance at LAX. Because he was unwilling at that time to identify himself, thereby making it impossible for anyone to verify his credentials or otherwise corroborate his story, I did not have that statement published (although I did allow it to be printed as an attachment to a document entitled “The September 11, 2001 Treason Independent Prosecutor Act,” which was posted on the Internet). This new version was written in May 2008, after Lewis decided to go public. It is quoted in my latest book, The New Pearl Harbor Revisited (Olive Branch, September 2008).

9/11 Family Members and First Responders Representative to Join 911Truth.org Conference Call 4 September 2008
9-5-08 UPDATE: Audio of this call is now available here. It will be rebroadcast by http://NoLiesRadio.org Friday, September 5, 2008 at 8:00pmPDT/11:00pmEDT.
TONIGHT -- Conference Call with First Responders Representatives, 9/11 Victims' Family Members
Join our Grassroots Development Call with 9/11 Family Members and First Responders' Representative, inspiring us for 9/11/08
Thursday, September 4, 2008 - 9 pm Eastern / 6 pm Pacific
911Truth.org is honored to host another in our series of monthly Grassroots Development calls this evening, and invite you to listen by phone or internet. As we approach the seventh anniversary of 9/11, we turn our attention this month to the family members and first responders most directly affected. The truth movement owes much to those who lost family members on 9/11/01 and to the first responders, who continue to carry the torch for justice. Without them, our quest for truth and accountability regarding the 9/11 attacks would certainly not have gotten as far as it has. They have exposed corruption while touching the hearts of many, and we offer them an opportunity to speak to us directly tonight.
On the call will be Bob McIlvaine, father of Robert McIlvaine, Michele Little, sister of fallen firefighter David Weiss, founder of UniteInPeace and Second Responders, and Anne Marie Baumann, Senior Vice President & Secretary for the FealGood Foundation, representing the 9/11 First Responders.

History Commons Projects, Update on September 4, 2008
One of the most active projects this week is the newly-established Iran-Contra
Timeline, where there is more about kidnappings by Iranian-backed terrorists,
missile shipments to Iran, and money movements to the Contras. You can also
find out about CIA Director William Casey’s illness, attorney general Ed Meese’s investigatory prowess, and Ronald Reagan’s coherence.
Due to the increasing amount of material about the anthrax attacks, a dedicated timeline has been set up to cover this, and it will have separate categories, including ones for suspects Ayaad Assaad, Steven Hatfill, and Bruce Ivins. Newly added entries cover Ivins’ drinking, the letter implicating Assaad—just a coincidence according to the FBI—and an unpublished novel Hatfill wrote about a false-flag bio-terror attack.

Political Prisoner Sami Al-Arian Released
By Liliana Segura
After five years in legal limbo, the Palestinian university professor falsely accused of terrorism is free, but faces contempt charges.
Breaking, from ABC News.
Former professor Sami Al-Arian, who was once charged by the U.S. government with being a top Palestinian terrorist, has been released from custody for the first time in more than five years.
Immigration authorities released Al-Arian to the custody of his daughter, just hours before a federal judge had ordered the agency to explain Al-Arian's continued detention.

Take Action on Minneapolis Arrests of Journalists
Following is an email we just received from FreePress, urging us all to take action on the arrest of journalists in Minneapolis.
Date: Wed, 3 Sep 2008
Free Press: media reform through education, organizing and advocacy
Reports of journalists, bloggers and videomakers being arrested keep rolling in. The St. Paul police department's targeting of journalists, including Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! and the I-Witness videomakers, is having a chilling effect on free speech as the city hosts the Republican National Convention.
Many in the mainstream media are ignoring these attacks on journalism -- and some independent media makers are still in jail. But in less than 24 hours, more than 35,000 people have signed our letter demanding that press intimidation cease immediately and that all charges against journalists be dropped.

9/11 Misinformation: Flight 'Passenger Lists' Show 'No Hijacker Names'
The assertion that 9/11 passengers lists "contained no Arab names" is frequently seen in the 9/11 truth movement. For example, this article by Enver Masud is headlined, "Why are there no Arab names on the passenger list for the planes used in the September 11, 2001 attack…?" The 9/11 website 9/11 Hard Facts claims, "[On] officially released passenger lists provided by the airlines to the media, no Arab names appear on any of the four passenger lists." In David Ray Griffin’s 9/11: The Myth and the Reality, he repeats the claim that, "[Their] names should be on the flight manifests. But the flight manifests that have been released contain neither the names of the alleged hijackers nor any other Arab names." John Leonard, Webster Tarpley and Kevin Barrett's publisher, repeats the claim that "Scholars [for 9/11 Truth]… report things like 'there were no Arabs on the passenger lists'" As well, Michael C. Ruppert, citing Gary North wrote, "Another easy and non-debatable hole is with the passenger lists and the hijackers. Gary North, Ph.D. - a history professor… relied on lists published by CNN… Official reports state that there were only 19 hijackers. Second, none of listed passenger names are Arabic, Muslim… The government needs to provide an explanation for this glaring discrepancy."

Police State Shows Its Violent Face in Minneapolis
UPDATE 9/1/08: Right now, National Guard are reportedly marching through downtown Minneapolis. Journalists (in addition to literally hundreds of activists) are now being rounded up and arrested in Minneapolis, which will prevent us from being able to get information about what's happening there. There is certainly no coverage of this on corporate TV. This has become very serious--pepper spray, concussion grenades, teargas, rubber bullets... Today Amy Goodman and two other producers from Democracy Now have been included in the list of journalists arrested (Video here). Activists are being charged with FELONIES including "conspiracy to incite a riot," their personal belongings are being confiscated (laptops, office computers, cell phones, an entire privately owned bus!, food, every way you can think of to get the word out is being preemptively taken!) Twincities.Indymedia.org reports: "Police authorities said of those arrested today, 119 were charged with felonies, 89 with gross misdemeanors, and 48 with misdemeanors." Please watch Coldsnap Legal Collective for more on this aspect.
YOU NEED TO CALL Mayor Coleman of Minneapolis at 651-266-8535 or 651-266-8510, Mayor Rybak of St. Paul at 612 673-2100, the Ramsey County Jail at 651-266-9350, Governor Pawlenty at 651-296-3391 (fax 651-296-2089), elected officials throughout the state, media--whomever you can think of! Make some noise, People. This is not acceptable and we can not just sit back and watch it happen!
Posted 8/31/08: We encourage readers to pay close attention to this next week's events in Minneapolis, site of the upcoming Republican National Convention, and be prepared to help activists who may need assistance. Already, activists who have spent two years preparing to express the will of the People during the convention, are being rounded up, personal belongings seized, doors broken down with guns drawn, food from Food Not Bombs taken ... Glenn Greenwald is blogging this at Salon (partial entry below): "[B]oth journalists and lawyers -- in addition to protesters -- have been detained and arrested even though not a single violent or criminal act has occurred. We direct your attention also to Twin Cities Indymedia for moment to moment updates and Indymedia.us and the i-Witness Video Blog for more. As always, we must BE the MEDIA right now. Please pass along this information so that others will be informed, and able to help as it's needed. Information will be posted at these Indymedia sites to clarify what's useful. We are grateful to know that the National Lawyers Guild has sent legal observers, as they have for most actions of dissent in the last many years. (Thanks, NLG!!) At this point, i-Witness has requested, "We are asking the public to contact the office of St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman at 651-266-8510 to stop this house arrest, this gross intimidation by police officers, and the detention of media activists and reporters."
It is imperative that we let the powers that be know, without any doubt, that the nation's eyes are upon them--both in Minneapolis, and as events begin unfolding in Mississippi and Louisiana with Hurricane Gustav approaching. Already Blackwater has put out a call for security personnel to respond to the POTENTIAL disaster, and Bush has issued federal emergencies for both states. In light of what happened just three years ago, we must be alert, watchful, and ready to respond in whatever ways become needed. I'm sure legal funds will be needed in Minneapolis, and we've seen many examples of court systems make the right decisions when they start getting thousands of calls from around the nation. Please keep an eye on watch Indymedia and Glenn Greenwald for more.

Bush quietly seeks to make war powers permanent, by declaring indefinite state of war
August 30, 2008
As the nation focuses on Sen. John McCain's choice of running mate, President Bush has quietly moved to expand the reach of presidential power by ensuring that America remains in a state of permanent war.
Buried in a recent proposal by the Administration is a sentence that has received scant attention -- and was buried itself in the very newspaper that exposed it Saturday. It is an affirmation that the United States remains at war with al Qaeda, the Taliban and "associated organizations."

'Debunking NIST's Conclusions About WTC 7 is as Easy as Shooting Fish in a Barrel' and other Responses to 8/21/08 NIST Briefing on WTC7
One week ago the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) held a press conference to announce that the "reason for the collapse of World Trade Center 7 is no longer a mystery..." They issued long-awaited results of their findings as to the cause of collapse of World Trade Center 7, the third building destroyed on 9/11. Nearly seven full years (and untold millions of dollars) later, the federal governmental agency responsible for safety of Americans in our buildings (and other structures) came to the groundbreaking conclusion that, in an "unprecedented event," fires and inoperative sprinklers caused a 47-story steel and concrete building to collapse neatly into a pile in a matter of 9 seconds. In addition to a press conference and release of the printed report, NIST has kindly created a video to help us understand the unfathomable NEW mystery they created ... that office fires are capable (though as they note, never before and never since 9/11/01 has this happened to this type of structure) of causing this kind of complete destruction. The more significant mystery NIST has now created is how in this world this agency--with this kind of money and resources, and this kind of time--could possibly have managed to ignore so much information, so much evidence, and so many whistleblowers and witnesses in order to come up with this kind of report. Astounding.
In the last week, a number of individuals have posted responses to the NIST report. As a convenience to our readers, 911truth.org has compiled four of those here. In addition, we posted information about and links to the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth press conference (audio here) immediately following the NIST conference, an interview of NIST's Dr. Sunder by NoLiesRadio.org, and the technical briefingA hosted by NIST earlier this week.
We refer readers also to Kevin Ryan's excellent and unsettling article of July 2, 2008, "The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites" and physicist Dr. Steven Jones' well-known paper, Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?"
