The anti-war movement has proven impotent to stop the war in Iraq despite the fact that the war was initiated on the basis of lies and deception. The anti-war movement stands helpless to prevent President Bush from attacking Iran or any other country that he might demonize for harboring a future 9/11 threat.
September 11 enabled Bush to take America to war and to keep America at war even though the government’s explanation of the events of September 11 is mired in controversy and disbelieved by a large percentage of the population.
Although the news media’s investigative arm has withered, other entities and individuals continue to struggle with unanswered questions. In the six years since 9/11, numerous distinguished scientists, engineers, architects, intelligence officers, pilots, military officers, air traffic controllers, and foreign dignitaries have raised serious and unanswered questions about the official story line.
Recognition of the inadequacy of the official account of the collapse of the twin towers is widespread in the scientific and technical community. One of the most glaring failures in the official account is the lack of an explanation of the near free-fall speed at which the buildings failed once the process began. Some scientists and engineers have attempted to bolster the official account with explanations of how this might happen in the absence of explosives used in controlled demolitions.

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has made a number of disturbing claims about the 911 attacks, but perhaps the most disconcerting is her oft-repeated statement that the US authorities have covered up an entire organizational layer within al-Qaeda.
In the documentary, Kill The Messenger, Sibel says:
“They haven’t mentioned anybody who actually is connected to Al Qaida, in mid or higher level.”
Similarly, Sibel often says:
“And I would like to give an analogy – if you take the War on Drugs, imagine if they only went after street dealers and they refused to investigate the mid-level dealers or the drug lords. This is very similar.”
As we approach another 911 anniversary, it’s time we learnt:
Sibel Edmonds is the most gagged woman in US history making it a little it difficult for us, the public, to have a detailed understanding of everything she knows about al-Qaida and the 911 attacks, but she has given interviews and written a number of great articles and letters which enable us to put some of the pieces together.
Immediately after the release of the 911 Commission report, Sibel wrote an open letter to Thomas Kean and the Commission in which she chided the 911 Commission panel for ignoring important issues related to the attacks, and she also made public some of her closed-door testimony to the 911 Commission.

Several long-time activists have told me recently they are overwhelmed, worried,
and think that we may be losing the struggle to end the imperial wars, save our
Constitution, and stop false flag terrorism.
One very smart friend asked me if there is any basis for hope.
But hope is an act of will, not a passive mood. Admittedly, things
are easier when circumstances bring hope to us, and we can just receive the
hopeful and inspiring news.
But if we care about winning, we have to be able to decide to have hope even
when outer circumstances aren’t so positive.
I have children who are counting on me to leave them with a reasonably safe
and sane planet. As I’ve said elsewhere,
“I care too much about my kids and my freedom to be afraid. I care enough
about them that it gets my heart beating, connects me to something bigger than
myself, and that gives me courage, even when the chips are down.”
If I allowed myself to lose hope about exposing false flag terror, about protecting
our freedom, about preventing World War III, I would be dropping the ball for
my kids. I would be condemning them to a potentially very grey world where bigger
and more violent false flags are carried out, where their liberties and joys
are wholly stripped away, where every ounce of vitality is beholden to “the
Many of us may be motivated by other things besides kids in our fight against
fascism, propaganda, perennial war, and government-sponsored terrorism.…
The Spitzer scandals continue.
On the 6th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, Brooklyn activist newspaper the New York Megaphone breaks this exclusive story:
NY Governor Eliot Spitzer filed an amicus brief on 1/15/03 on behalf of the World Trade Center’s controversial lease-holder, the real estate magnate Larry Silverstein. This document shows that Spitzer, as Attorney General, helped Silverstein get the whopping $4.5 billion windfall for the 9/11 attacks. The record is clear: Spitzer helped reverse a lower court’s decision, by making credible Silverstein’s argument that the two different plane crashes on 9/11/01 should be compensated as two different terrorist attacks.
This amicus brief has never been reported before today, in print or online. It was discovered in the court archives on the 17th floor of the 2nd Circuit Court (NYC), and released to the New York Megaphone by attorney Carl Person. In reporter Sander Hicks’s exclusive story, author and lawyer Carl Person says: “I was surprised to see that Spitzer had used his position as attorney general to support one private litigant over another. Normally, this is not done.”
Hicks’ story also covers Governor Spitzer’s recent scandals with police spying on rival Joe Bruno, the Roger Stone voice mail threat, as well as new information and interviews regarding the Spitzer links to Kroll executives Michael Cherkasky and Jerome Hauer. Hicks hands in an original interview with Jerome Hauer, probing his documented links to anthrax suspect Steven Hatfill. Hauer is widely believed to be the source of the White House’s foreknowledge… Continue reading

Zogby Poll: 51% of Americans Want Congress to Probe Bush/Cheney Regarding 9/11 Attacks; Over 30% Seek Immediate Impeachment
67% also fault 9/11 Commission for not investigating anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7
Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 – As America nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush’ and Vice President Cheney’s actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.
The 911truth.org-sponsored poll also found that over two-thirds of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.
WTC 7 housed the mayor’s emergency bunker and offices of the SEC, IRS, CIA and Secret Service and was not hit by any planes but still completely collapsed into its own footprint nearly eight hours after the Twin Tower attacks. FEMA did not explain this collapse, the 911 Commission ignored it, and the promised official study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now 2 years overdue.
Janice Matthews, executive director of poll sponsor 911truth.org, observes: “The supermajority response to the WTC Building 7 question signals an increasing public concern about this remarkable event — up from 38% last year. We can perhaps credit this… Continue reading

The day is somber as it always is now on September 11th. Today it is literally
somber, the weather gloomy and I feel somber. But this year I’m home, not in
New York City begging for 9/11 truth, nor in Valhalla where Vanessa is buried,
nor in Washington, D.C. lobbying persons wrapped so tight in metaphoric suits
that they cannot see beyond their own tailored personae to understand what I
want. It’s really unfair to them, after all, since I can never really have what
Somehow I am a part of the “truth” movement–a movement of those
family members and citizens who believe at least that there are key questions
to the events leading up to 9/11, the events of that day, and the events post
9/11 that were never asked (forget answered) and that these questions need to
be asked so that the world can go back to its bucolic ways pre-November 2000.
There is an irony in this position for me (at least one) and that is I never
really believed in truth before because it rarely, if ever, in human discourse
relies on a laying out of facts that are indisputable. Instead, truth comes
to mean there is consensus (or majority agreement) that facts laid out in a
particular way mean something. Truth is always dependent upon cultural and collective
agreement. It is a noun. But you cannot hold it, despite Jefferson and King’s
beautiful incantation. Truths hold us as we believe we hold them.…
My brother was on the 94th floor of the North Tower. He was 47, a VP with Marsh Mac.
Many of you know the pain of losing a family member or friend six years ago, and the added trauma of seeing the towers fall, over and over, as the media replayed the death and destruction.
I will never forget my 6’2″ “baby” brother who towered over me. I will never stop missing him and wondering how it is that he isn’t growing older with me and our other brother. My 84 year old Dad misses his daily calls, checking up to see if he’s okay since mom died 10 years ago. I will never forget standing around the dining room table with my dad and brother as we helped each other take DNA samples to hopefully identify Billy’s remains, if any were found.
I know others lost family members, loved ones younger than Billy, and as suddenly. What causes me sometimes unbearable pain is the way my brother’s death has been part of a government perversion to justify killing other innocents, just as suddenly, just as tragically.
Americans and people of other nations, other faiths and cultures, continue to die as our President continues to use those who died on 9/11/2001 as justification for his own deluded and horrific purpose.
I will remember my brother, William (Billy) Peterson today as I do everyday. Thank you for providing a forum to express my pain.

9-11, Six Years Later
By Paul Craig Roberts
On Sept. 7, National Public Radio reported that Muslims in the Middle East were beginning to believe that the 9/11 attacks on the WTC and Pentagon were false flag operations committed by some part of the U.S. and/or Israeli government.
It was beyond the imagination of the NPR reporter and producer that there could be any substance to these beliefs, which were attributed to the influence of books by U.S. and European authors sold in bookstores in Egypt.
NPR’s concern was that books by Western authors questioning the origin of the 9/11 attack have the undesirable result of removing guilt from Muslims’ shoulders.
The NPR reporter, Ursula Lindsey, said that “here in the U.S., most people have little doubt about what happened during the 2001 attacks.”
NPR’s assumption that the official 9/11 story is the final word is uninformed. Polls show that 36 percent of Americans and more than 50 percent of New Yorkers lack confidence in the 9/11 commission report. Many 9/11 families who lost relatives in the attacks are unsatisfied with the official story. Why are the U.S. media untroubled that there has been no independent investigation of 9/11?
Why are the media unconcerned that the rules governing preservation of forensic evidence were not followed by federal authorities?
Why do the media brand skeptics of the official line “conspiracy theorists” and “kooks”?
What is wrong with debate and listening to both… Continue reading

Since it’s release a year ago, the documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent expose of an under-reported 9/11 cover-up as revealed by leading 9/11 families and author Paul Thompson, has become an underground hit that continues to garner support and positive recognition as time passes and word spreads. The film has received near universally excellent critical reviews while being officially selected and screened at three international film festivals including in Brazil and Mexico. Here in the US several hundred home, library and theatrical screenings rallied tens of thousands to support a new investigation while US satellite networks, FreeSpeech TV and LINKTV , beamed the film to millions of households across the country. Overseas, the film has reached tens of millions via television networks in Spain, Poland, Norway, Sweden and throughout the Middle East via Al-Jazeera. On the net, the complete film has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
In the run-up to September 11th this year there is continued interest. In Australia and New Zealand on the 11th, Foxtel owned History Channel will broadcast the television premiere of the film in both countries. FreespeechTV will broadcast the documentary 5 times on Tuesday while LinkTV will broadcast the film on both Monday and Tuesday.
In Minneapolis former FBI agent Colleen Rowley has recorded public service announcements for the Air America affiliate to promote a screening of 9/11: Press for Truth in a 700 seat theater.… Continue reading
Issued by 9/11 Truth of Argentina, September 9, 2007:
Citizens of the world, the lies about the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon
and the Twin Towers (9/11/01) are falling apart: Dublin, Madrid, Buenos Aires,
Rome, Paris, United States.
On September 11th, those of us who struggle for the truth will be honoring the
victims, in Buenos Aires, Dublin, Santiago de Chile, Caracas, Madrid, Paris,
Rome, Brussels and several places of the United States. Six years ago, Bush
swore that the terrorist had been Bin Laden, and the whole world except for
few believed him. Today, few believe him.
Italian, Spanish, Argentine, French, German and many American organizations
and investigators are working for the truth, for there are as many lies as casualties.
University professor David Ray Griffin is calling for demonstrations all over
the world: Because of the attack, Americans have accepted anything.
"The attacks left Americans numb enough to accept anything; in the US,
this has meant severe restrictions to civil liberties. Abroad, we have had a
war against terror that has been a war of aggression against Muslims. This has
meant six years of torture, humiliation and death of hundreds of thousands of
people in Afghanistan and Iraq, people who were innocent civilians or soldiers
fighting against an immoral and even illegal occupation."
The cover-up by the media is worldwide
We have seen an unprecedented cover-up of the media in the US and allied countries
(also in Argentina). There had been cover-ups before. But in this case, the… Continue reading
I want to sincerely thank the military heroes who — even right now — may be thwarting another false flag attack in America. By way of background, I read with gratitude that the “CENTCOM Commander’s Veto Sank Bush’s Threatening Gulf Buildup”. And I also believe that good people in the military — who love this country and the Constitution — have thwarted some of the neocon’s other crazy plans. For example, someone blew the whistle on nuclear bombs which were “accidentally” loaded onto a B-52 bomber and flown above the U.S. As some have reported, it would have been virtually impossible for nuclear weapons to have been accidentally mixed up with conventional weapons. Thank you to the anonymous hero who blew the whistle and stopped whatever dark deed was being planned. So to the behind-the-scenes heroes who are “just saying no” to another false flag attack . . . Thank You. I’m just a civilian, and I don’t know what it is like to stand in your shoes. But I do know that the people of good faith in the military can save our country from dictatorship, poverty, and despair by preventing “another 9/11″; that is, an attack by elements of our very own government. We the people of the United States are counting on you to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic . . . no matter how high and mighty they may be. We thank you for doing the right thing.

September 6, 2007 — Two more cops have died of 9/11-related lung cancer, according to their families.
Officer Frank Macari, 51, died on Monday, after a five-year battle with the disease.
Macari, a 13-year veteran of the force assigned to Brooklyn, developed a tumor on his leg in December 2001, after working at Ground Zero. He leaves a wife and stepdaughter.
Officer Madeline Caro, 41, a 16-year veteran, succumbed to lung cancer in July. Carlo, assigned to the South Bronx, also spent days at the World Trade Center site. She leaves a son and daughter.
Macari’s family will file papers, as Carlo’s family has done, to obtain line-of-duty benefits from the NYPD.
Meanwhile, the sixth annual NYPD 9/11 Memorial Weekend begins tomorrow with a 1 p.m. parade in lower Manhattan, ending at the police memorial wall at Liberty Street and South End Avenue. The weekend includes a Saturday-night concert at Town Hall in honor of the NYPD’s 9/11 victims. It stars tenor Ronan Tynan.

We need to broaden our understanding of censorship in the United States. No
longer is the dictionary definition of direct government control of news adequate.
The private corporate media in the United States significantly under-cover and/or
deliberately censor numerous important news stories every year as well.
Project Censored at Sonoma State University has annually researched these stories
for 31 years. Over 200 faculty, community experts, and students, select and
rank the stories the media failed to cover. Hundreds of uncovered news stories
are evaluated. The result is the annual listing of the top 25 most important
ones that were censored.
The systemic erosion of human rights and civil liberties in the United States
is the most common theme of censorship for 2006-07.
The corporate media last year ignored that habeas corpus can now be suspended
for anyone by order of the president. With the approval of Congress, the Military
Commissions Act MCA of 2006 allows for the suspension of habeas corpus for U.S.
citizens and non-citizens alike. While media, including a lead editorial in
"The New York Times" October 19, 2006, have given false comfort that
American citizens will not be the victims of the measures legalized by this
act, the law is quite clear that "any person" can be targeted. The
text in the MCA allows for the institution of a military alternative to the
constitutional justice system for "any person" regardless of American
citizenship. The MCA effectively does away… Continue reading

Says host Geraldo Rivera to the crowd, chanting “9/11 was an inside job”
at the beginning of the show: “Get a life.”
The protesters continue chanting as Rivera reports on the high temperature
in New York City (87 degrees Fahrenheit), causing the death of one dog left
in a hot car. As Dr. Jennifer Ashton explains, the heat from inside a car will
cause a dog, unable to sweat, to go into organ failure.
As the chants continue in the background, Rivera and Ashton look over the results
of a baking experiment. The inside of the car used in the experiment, as it
turns out, was hot enough to bake their batch of cookies to completion.
“The proteins in our body literally become denatured,” explains Dr.
Ashton, of the effects of a hot car interior. “They separate, and that’s
how people die.”
As the protest continues off-screen, Judge Jeanine Pirro disagrees with a “free
pass” given the mother of one particular child left in a hot car, citing
cases in which the legal consequences were far worse with less harm caused to
the child in question.
As a sign reading “Stop the Neocon Mad Men” is lifted over Rivera’s
shoulder, he reports on a 42-year-old Guatemalan immigrant with a criminal history
who is found dead. Judge Pirro and advocate Fernando Mateo express ultimate
dissatisfaction in the charges brought against a police officer charged in the
“We’ve been surrounded by an activist–radical–I don’t know, Communist
Osama bin Laden organized the 9/11 attacks right?
What is implied on TV is very different from the actual actions the US government
has taken in “pursuit” of the 9/11 conspirators.
Six years later, the US has filed no charges, presented no evidence and in
fact is not even seeking Bin Laden in connection with the crime!

The government has yet to properly explain why our generation’s Pearl Harbor, 9/11, is never mentioned on the FBI‘s Most Wanted poster of suspected mastermind Usama (Osama) Bin Laden. Reporter Jeff Ferrell, who recently broke the story on Homeland Security’s “Clergy Response Team” To Quell Public Dissent During Martial Law, investigates what on the surface seems to be a simple question: Why no mention of 9/11. The answers, or lack of them, are anything but simple.

Over the last eight weeks a world renowned scientist and three nationally recognized engineers have called for a new investigation of 9/11, yet none of these have been reported in the mainstream media.
Most recently, on Sept. 4, Joel S. Hirschhorn, Ph.D., who served for 12 years as a Senior Staff Member of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment and later as Director of Environment, Energy and Natural Resources for the National Governors Association, called for a new investigation of 9/11, saying “First, let the technical truth emerge. Then, if necessary, cope with the inevitable political, conspiracy and other questions.” Former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Senior Staff Member Calls for New Investigation of 9/11
On Aug. 27, Lynn Margulis, Ph.D., member of the National Academy of Sciences and world renowned scientist, characterized the official account of 9/11 as “a fraud” and called for a new investigation, “I suggest that those of us aware and concerned demand that the glaringly erroneous official account of 9/11 be dismissed as a fraud and a new, thorough, and impartial investigation be undertaken.” National Academy of Sciences Member Calls for New 9/11 Investigation
An Aug. 21 article reported that James Quintiere, Ph.D., former Chief of NIST’s Fire Science Division, called for an independent review of the World Trade Center Twin Tower collapse investigation. “I wish that there would be a peer review of this,” he said, referring to the NIST investigation.…Continue reading
