we ask you to make your own fearless declaration stated as “I AM THE ONE
WHO…” through your online submissions and communications of videos,

in Africa” or “I am the ONE who will make people smile… Continue reading

Questioning 9/11: The Politician Turned Conspiracy Theorist

Andreas von Bulow believes the US carried out the 9/11 attacks.

September 6, 2011
By Christian Stoecker
Spiegel Online International (DerSpiegel)

Andreas von Bulow used to be a German cabinet minister and member of parliament for the Social Democrats. Now he is a best-selling author who writes books about 9/11 conspiracy theories. His former colleagues no longer want anything to do with him.

Andreas von Bulow says he’s never feared for his life. This is despite the fact that he harbors suspicions that the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were not the work of 19 “suicide Muslims,” as he calls them, but rather an ingenious, cold-blooded operation in psychological warfare organized by the United States itself; and despite the fact that he has published this view in book form.

Bulow doesn’t commit himself definitively to the position, but he feels fairly certain that either the Bush administration or other, far more powerful groups operating behind the scenes allowed more than 3,000 people to die in order to construct an unassailable argument supporting geopolitically desirable military operations such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan.

These are astonishing theories on the part of a former German government minister, one who spent 25 years representing the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD) in Germany’s federal parliament, the Bundestag. He’s not saying his theories necessarily represent what really happened, Bulow explains, he’s simply posing questions. “This is just another way of thinking,” he says. But, the former minister adds, it’s a way of thinking that appears… Continue reading

10 years later, 9/11 still shrouded in mystery

By Will Bunch
Philadelphia Daily News

IF YOU THINK that on the 10th anniversary you know the whole story of 9/11 – and here I’m addressing conspiracy-minded “truthers” and the 13 percent who approved of the job Dick Cheney did as vice president – actually, you don’t.

Time has upheld the broad story line of how hijackers loyal to Osama bin Laden hijacked four planes and killed nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001 – claims about holograms being used to attack buildings instead of jetliners notwithstanding. At the same time, the dictum of famed investigative reporter I.F. Stone about all governments – i.e., they lie – is no less true about 9/11 than any other event.

Here are 10 questions about 9/11 that remain unanswered.

1. Did the CIA cover up its advance knowledge of at least two of the 9/11 hijackers?

Richard Clarke, the national counterterrorism czar on 9/11, thinks so. In an interview for an upcoming radio documentary, Clarke claimed that top-level CIA officials deliberately withheld from the White House and the FBI knowledge as early as 2000 that two al Qaeda members – Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar – were living in San Diego.

The former anti-terror chief said he believes that the CIA kept the info under wraps because it wanted to recruit the two Saudis to serve as double agents within bin Laden’s organization. Instead, the two terrorists ended up hijackers on American Flight 77. George Tenet, who was CIA director, claims that Clarke… Continue reading

Exploding the 9/11 Myth – Sifting through the Evidence – Interview with Kevin Ryan

Carol Brouillet
CommunityCurrency.org

Kevin Ryan will be speaking on the Community Currency Radio Show this week about “Exploding the 9/11 Myth.” As a whistleblower from Underwriters Laboratories (UL), he was fired for publicly questioning UL’s role in testing for the failure of the steel in the WTC, due to “fire.” Since then, he has done a tremendous amount of research, written and spoken out against what he considers to be fraudulent science that has been used to cover up the crimes and the identity of the real culprits behind 9/11.

Kevin Ryan

Hear Kevin Ryan on the Community Currency Radio Show , Thursday, September 1st, 2011, from 2 pm to 3 pm (Pacific Time) on the Progressive Radio Network .

Kevin Ryan is a chemistry laboratory manager with twenty-two years of professional experience. Through his work as Site Manager for the environmental testing division of Underwriters Laboratories (UL), he began to investigate the tragedy of September 11th, 2001. Ryan was fired by UL, in 2004, for publicly asking questions about UL’s testing of the structural materials used to construct the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings as well as UL’s involvement in the WTC investigation being conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Since 2006, Ryan has served as co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies, and has been a founding member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice, the 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington, and Scientists for 9/11 Truth. He now serves as a board director at… Continue reading

Faith Leaders to Hold Multi-Faith Memorial Service on 9/11

Posted September 4th, 2011

Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth Brings Together
Leaders of Many Faiths and Belief Systems to Honor Those Who Perished

NEW YORK, NY — A variety of religious and spiritual leaders will hold a memorial service to honor those who died as a result of the 9/11 attacks, and provide spiritual succor and encouragement to all those who still grieve over the events of that tragic day. The service will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village at 10:00 a.m. The service will be followed by a fellowship time, including refreshments.

Hosted by Father Frank Morales, an Episcopal priest, and Rev. Ian Alterman, an evangelical minister, the service will bring together faith leaders and spiritual leaders from a variety of traditions, and will include prayers, intercessions, music, songs, sermons, and respectful memorials. Also participating will be survivors and surviving family members.

Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth believes — as do thousands of scientists and professionals including architects, engineers, pilots, firefighters, first responders, and 9/11 family members — that there are still many unanswered questions with regard to the attacks, and facts which contradict many aspects of the official story, and that faith leaders do a disservice to those who died if they do not do as almost every faith traditions instructs, and seek the truth.

As faith leaders, the members of Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth consider it a moral duty to seek this truth, no matter the challenges, and… Continue reading

Statement from Richard Gage, AIA, Founder, Architects & Engineers for 9/11
Truth

Welcome to our Pre-Release Edition of “9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out” where we are partnering with you to complete this important film with sufficient quality to maximize its effect in informing and enlightening professionals and the general public worldwide about this critical evidence regarding the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers.

AE911Truth is encouraged by the excitement surrounding this new milestone documentary. Now is the time for all responsible professionals to speak out about the scientific
forensic evidence that has been hidden and distorted by officials tasked with reporting the facts — yet discovered and disseminated by thousands of truth seekers around the world with no axes to grind.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth now number over 1,500 technical and building professionals, 43 of whom are doing just that in this film — speaking out about the deep flaws in the official story.

This is a time that calls for courage — and we applaud these professionals for their bold choice to participate in this documentary.

The film was inspired two years ago by our video team member, Marty McGee of Buffalo, NY, who pressed forward with this vision by flying around the country
in a 24-stop route to videotape the experts.

Over one hundred hours of remarkable testimony was distilled into this documentary. However, we’ve already posted a dozen full-length interviews on our website
and plan to publish them all for you… Continue reading

Does Science Lie?

by John Parulis

TruthPhalanx.com

As we approach the tenth anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, we must weigh our collective need for maintaining and promoting what is believed to be “safe” against what is in fact true. A PhD in physics and former student of physics teacher David Chandler, when showed the compelling research David has put together on the physical improbability of the official story of the building collapses of the Three World Trade buildings on September 11 said, “I understand and accept your data as scientifically accurate and flawless, yet I don’t believe it”.

David Chandler

As David Chandler states in his recent DVD,” 9/11 Analysis ,” “It’s time to take the blinders off”. Remembering the enormous loss of life and the epic reaches of the sorrow of 9/11 can best be served by embracing the Truth, no matter how difficult a task that may be. Doing otherwise promotes the system that created this misery. David Chandler’s research is honest, scientifically precise and profoundly compelling. Without pointing a finger of blame, David asks other scientists to test his work. He asks all of us to allow the rigors of science to clear our thinking, beliefs and assumptions so that a new dawning of intelligence and enlightenment replaces the belief system that enslaves us to the way things are.

Below is an excerpt from David Chandler’s DVD, “9/11 Analysis”. The video can be purchased at: 911speakout.org .

First responders decry exclusion from 9/11 ceremony

By Jeff Stein
August 30, 2011
CNN

New York (CNN) — When debris rained from the sky in lower Manhattan on September
11, 2001, the first responders to the terrorist attack did not turn away. They
rushed to the World Trade Center buildings while the world around them crumbled.

Yet now, after all the wreckage has been cleared and the rebuilding has begun,
their path is again blocked — not by flying chunks of smoldering rubble, but
by space constraints.

The first responders are not invited to this year’s September 11 memorial ceremony
at ground zero, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office confirmed Monday.

It’s a painful insult for many of the approximately 3,000 men and women who
risked their lives, limbs and lungs on that monumental day, puncturing another
hole in a still searing wound.

In a statement, Bloomberg spokesman Andrew Brent said the commemoration ceremony
is for the victims’ families.

"While we are again focused on accommodating victims’ family members,
given the space constraints, we’re working to find ways to recognize and honor
first responders, and other groups, at different places and times," Brent
said.

But first responder John Feal, founder of an advocacy group for the police
officers, firefighters, civilian volunteers and others who worked at ground
zero, assailed Brent’s response, saying Bloomberg "lives in his own world."

"The best of the best that this country offered 10 years ago are being
neglected and denied their rightful place," Feal said.

Denise Villamia, a first responder who… Continue reading

9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed

Cover photo of 9/11 Ten Years LaterDavid Ray Griffin

Introduction: 9/11 Ten Years Later

The words in the title of this book – “9/11 Ten Years Later” – are often followed with an exclamation point. The exclamation point may be a way of expressing, by members of the 9/11 Truth Movement, amazement that the truth has not already been publicly revealed. The exclamation point might be used by detractors of this movement — perhaps along with an expletive — to express their feeling that it is time for these people to “get a life.” The exclamation point might reflect a position somewhat in the middle — of spouses of members hoping that no more years of their family life will be oriented around the work of trying to get the truth revealed.

In any case, for reasons discussed in this book (especially the final two chapters), there is nothing surprising about the fact that the 9/11 crime has not been revealed. Those who have gained control of a state in an ostensible democracy have many means not only for orchestrating major crimes, but also for preventing those crimes (including their crimes against democracy itself) from being publicized.

What is somewhat surprising, perhaps to the perpetrators themselves, is the fact that the 9/11 Truth Movement is still alive and, in fact, continues to grow. The first professional 9/11 organization, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, was formed in 2005, and since then a dozen professional organizations have been created. It was not until 2006 that architect Richard Gage started… Continue reading

French, Italian, German Media to Leave US and UK in the Dust

10annivbanner

From the Remember Building 7 Campaign:

September 2, 2011

If you thought the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 would be an endless barrage of
media coverage rehashing the official story and taking occasional swipes at
the 9/11 truth movement with one-sided reporting, think again.

Well, if you live in Europe, that is.

This coming Sunday, September 4, three major European channels will air in-
depth stories on the Remember Building 7 campaign. M6, among France’s
largest channels, will show a 90-minute documentary about various 9/11 family
and first responder groups, a significant portion of which will cover Remember
Building 7 (click here to see the trailer). In the same vein, RAI 3, Italy’s
BBC, will show a feature length documentary that devotes significant time to
Remember Building 7. And RTL, one of Germany’s largest channels, will
show a Spiegel TV special about Remember Building 7 and the 9/11 truth movement.

That is just the beginning. Next week more stories will follow. When all is
said and done, tens of millions of Europeans will learn about Building 7 during
the 10th Anniversary.

With the 10th Anniversary Campaign now in high gear, this coverage comes at
exactly the right time to help the campaign reach $1 million by September 11.

If you have not yet made your donation, please go to RememberBuilding7.org
now and get it done!

Meanwhile, in the US and UK, journalists are having a tougher time being journalists,
and they just don’t seem to get that shamelessly overt bias isn’t
that good at persuading viewers (unless it’s on FOX News).…

9/11 After A Decade: Have We Learned Anything?

By Paul Craig Roberts

August 24, 2011 Information Clearing House — – -In a few days it will be the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. How well has the US government’s official account of the event held up over the decade?

Not very well. The chairman, vice chairman, and senior legal counsel of the 9/11 Commission wrote books partially disassociating themselves from the commission’s report. They said that the Bush administration put obstacles in their path, that information was withheld from them, that President Bush agreed to testify only if he was chaperoned by Vice President Cheney and neither were put under oath, that Pentagon and FAA officials lied to the commission and that the commission considered referring the false testimony for investigation for obstruction of justice.

In their book, the chairman and vice chairman, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, wrote that the 9/11 Commission was “set up to fail.” Senior counsel John Farmer, Jr., wrote
that the US government made “a decision not to tell the truth about what happened,” and that the NORAD “tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public.” Kean said, “We to this day don’t know why NORAD told us what they told us, it was just so far from the truth.”

Most of the questions from the 9/11 families were not answered. Important witnesses were not called. The commission only heard from those who supported the government’s account. The commission was a controlled political operation,… Continue reading

Danny Jowenko, 1955-2011: How a Demolition Expert Brought Explosive Attention to 9/11 Truth

Written by Eli Rika
August 23, 2011
AE911Truth.org

Danny Jowenko

“It starts from below… They have simply blown away columns.”

“This is controlled demolition.”

“A team of experts did this.”

Photo: Though Danny Jowenko is no longer with us, his expert analysis and
fearless testimony remain as an example to those who seek the truth about 9/11

These startling words, spoken by controlled demolition expert Danny Jowenko in 2006, ignited an international discussion over the destruction of WTC Building 7, and added to the professional voices at AE911Truth who have challenged the official explanation. As we mourn Jowenko’s tragic death on July 16, we look back at how his impromptu interview shed light onto one of the greatest mysteries of the 9/11 catastrophe.

Jowenko was the owner of Jowenko Explosieve Demolitie, a controlled demolitions company headquartered in the Netherlands. He had over 30 years of building demolition experience, and his knowledge of explosives was so respected that he was sought as a contributor to the ImplosionWorld production of “A History of Structural Demolition in America”.

high-rise buildings over the years

In September 2006, Jowenko was interviewed by a Dutch filmmaker, who presented him with footage of the destruction of WTC Building 7. It only took a few moments for Jowenko to conclude that it was the result of a controlled demolition. “This is professional work, without any doubt,” he said.

When Jowenko was told that the building was brought… Continue reading

“Mounting Evidence” – New book from Dr. Paul Rea

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AS 10TH ANNIVERSARY APPROACHES, NEW BOOK CHALLENGES OFFICIAL STORY OF 9/11

Cover photo of Mounting Evidence (Newark, California August 11, 2011). Years after most of us thought the Crime of the Century was solved, additional evidence demands a closer look.

While next month ‘s commemorations in New York, San Francisco and other cities are affirming the official narrative for the 9/11 tragedy, MOUNTING EVIDENCE shows how it doesn’t square with information now available. In each of the key areas — the shifting stories, the remarkable intelligence lapses, the stunning air defense failures, the unprecedented fall of the World Trade Center buildings — the government explanations conflict with what is known today.

There’s little doubt the tragic attacks on 9/11 quickly became the defining events of our time, shaping much of what has followed. But if Americans don’t understand the past, are they ready to face an uncertain future? In MOUNTING EVIDENCE, Dr. Rea shows that by understanding the shattering events of that dark day, Americans can help to end seemingly endless wars, take back their lost personal liberties, and restore their democracy.

While other researchers have written about 9/11, this fact-based volume is the first comprehensive treatment of the many different angles. It connects the dots to reveal disturbing patterns concerning the intelligence failures, the hijackers’ backgrounds, and the role of the Saudi funders.

Presented in a lively, accessible way, Dr. Rea ‘s findings call out for a new investigation. Former US Senator Mike Gravel, who is already organizing ballot referenda in… Continue reading

The decade’s biggest scam

by Glenn Greenwald
Salon.com

The Los Angeles Times examines the staggering sums of money expended on patently absurd domestic “homeland security” projects: $75 billion per year for things such as a Zodiac boat with side-scan sonar to respond to a potential attack on a lake in tiny Keith County, Nebraska, and hundreds of “9-ton BearCat armored vehicles, complete with turret” to guard against things like an attack on DreamWorks in Los Angeles. All of that — which is independent of the exponentially greater sums spent on foreign wars, occupations, bombings, and the vast array of weaponry and private contractors to support it all — is in response to this mammoth, existential, the-single-greatest-challenge-of-our-generation threat:

“The number of people worldwide who are killed by Muslim-type terrorists, Al Qaeda wannabes, is maybe a few hundred outside of war zones. It’s basically the same number of people who die drowning in the bathtub each year ,” said John Mueller, an Ohio State University professor who has written extensively about the balance between threat and expenditures in fighting terrorism.

Last year, McClatchy characterized this threat in similar terms: “undoubtedly more American citizens died overseas from traffic accidents or intestinal illnesses than from terrorism .” The March, 2011, Harper ‘s Index expressed the point this way : “Number of American civilians who died worldwide in terrorist attacks last year: 8 — Minimum number who died after being struck by lightning: 29.” That’s the threat in the name of which a vast domestic Security State is constructed,… Continue reading

Who–and What–Are Behind the “Official History” of the Bin Laden Raid?

By Russ Baker

Another original investigation by WhoWhatWhy.com

Article Summary: When you look closely, nothing seems right about what will surely become the accepted account of the raid that nailed America’s enemy number one. And then things get even weirder…

The father of the New Yorker writer who got the exclusive inside story of the bin Laden raid

The establishment media just keep getting worse. They’re further and further from good, tough investigative journalism, and more prone to be pawns in complicated games that affect the public interest in untold ways. A significant recent example is The New Yorker ‘s vaunted August 8 exclusive on the vanquishing of Osama bin Laden.

Cover image for story: Getting bin Laden The piece, trumpeted as the most detailed account to date of the May 1 raid in Abbottabad Pakistan, was an instant hit. “Got the chills half dozen times reading @NewYorker killing bin Laden tick tock…exquisite journalism,” tweeted the digital director of the PBS show Frontline . The author, freelancer Nicholas Schmidle, was quickly featured on the Charlie Rose show, an influential determiner of “chattering class” opinion. Other news outlets rushed to praise the story as “exhaustive,” “utterly compelling,” and on and on.

To be sure, it is the kind of granular, heroic story that the public loves, that generates follow-up bestsellers and movie options. The takedown even has a Hollywood-esque code name: “Operation Neptune’s Spear”

Here’s the introduction to the mission commander , full of minute details that help give it a ring of authenticity and suggest the most… Continue reading
