A Commitment to More Civil and Effective Collaboration in the 9/11 Truth Movement

Editor’s Note:

This statement was originally published in February of 2007 and has since remained posted at our About Us page; today it seems timely to repost it to the front page. Given the current climate of fear and hatred swirling about us–indeed, throughout our society, perpetuated by much of the media, government spokespersons and individuals seething with hatred–we would do well to re-commit, as a community of truth advocates, to continuing truly ‘civil and effective’ work.

 
Because we still lack subpoena and discovery powers, members of the 9/11 truth movement and American citizens as a whole will not be able to fully connect the “dots” of 9/11 events until key classified documents and videos are leaked or released. In the meantime, many of us will develop theories about those events and what really occurred. Given the incompleteness of the facts at hand, our theories will invariably differ. They therefore can and should be sincerely discussed and analyzed, but this debate must not obscure the reality that the investigative tasks we face still remain extremely challenging.

We believe our campaign to expose the truth of 9/11 offers the world more essential insights into current political and economic reality than any other modern movement and therefore can empower the most profound social transformation of our age. This work is far too important to debilitate with egotism, zealotry or self-inflicted wounds, and we must make every effort to sustain the unprecedented progress we have made.

Because the 9/11 truth movement presents… Continue reading

What the Murders of Dr. Tiller and Holocaust Museum Guard Really Mean

by ‘George Washington’ of WashingtonsBlog.com

I believe that anyone who promotes further murders like Dr. Tiller or the guard at the holocaust museum are guilty of terrorism. As a Muslim blogger wrote about the Tiller murder:

Two men commit murder with the goal of influencing government policy in the United States. The crimes occur one day apart. Both are religiously motivated. The Muslim is charged with terrorism. The Christian is not.

On the other hand, anyone who tries to label the maniacs who committed the murders as “right wingers” is painting with too wide a brush.

The murders – and the prevention of potential future attacks – are part of an important law enforcement issue. But just as it was insane to invade Iraq based upon a false linkage with 9/11, it would be insane to try to label millions of Americans as being dangerous just because they are republicans, or liberals or any other group.

Remember, many on the left say that the people and the treasury are being looted by the big corporations and fat cats . See this, this and this. So don’t fall for the old divide and conquer trick of trying to distr act from the populist anger which both the right and the left righteously feel at being ripped off.

And the fact that the guy who murdered the guard is anti-semitic does not mean that everyone who questions Israel’s oppressive policies is a bad guy. Remember, many Israeli citizens question… Continue reading

9/11 World Trade Center Expert to Give 100th Talk in San Diego Area

PR Newswire
Tue June 9, 2009

To: NATIONAL EDITORS

Contact: Dwain Deets of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth,
+1-760-445-3242, dadeets (at) cox [dot] net

SAN DIEGO, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On Saturday, June 13 and Sunday,
June 14, 2009, architect Richard Gage, AIA, will give his 100th talk on behalf
of more than 640 architects and engineers who cite evidence of explosive demolition
as the cause for collapse of the three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11.
After careful examination of forensics data inconsistent with the official account,
these professionals are calling for a new, independent investigation into the
9/11 atrocities.

A practicing architect for more than 20 years, Gage is the founder of Architects
and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth). Comprised of more than 3,600 petition-signers,
members, architects and engineers, the organization contends at its Web site,
AE911Truth.org, that the official FEMA and NIST reports provide insufficient
evidence to explain the towers’ destruction. AE911Truth points in particular
to the destruction of the third high-rise, World Trade Center 7, which was not
hit by an aircraft yet came down in less than seven seconds. The group bases
its conclusions solely on forensic evidence and does not engage in conspiracy
theories or in assigning blame for the destruction.

AE911Truth’s conclusions are shared by hundreds of scientists, senior-level
military, intelligence and government officials; pilots and aviation professionals;
scholars and university professors; 9/11 survivors and family members; and media
professionals around the world.

The 9/11 Truth movement, which Time magazine called… Continue reading

WeAreChangeLA confronts 9/11 criminal ‘General’ Richard Myers

Submitted to 911blogger.com by Shumonik

On May 20, 2009, General Richard Myers was at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California to give a talk and a book signing. Bruno Bruhwiler and Jeremy Rothe-Kushel of WeAreChangeLA were there to call into question the ‘General’s’ credibility when it came to talking about 9/11 and threats to the nation.

 

Editor’s Note:
Can we hope that one day Americans will honor courageous individuals who confront their own fear to stand up and question “authorities” to demand truth and accountability? As a nation, we remember Thomas Jefferson and George Washington with great honor, yet had they not likewise stood up to reject tyrannical “authority” we would not have America at all. Unfortunately, in 2009, rather than honor present day courage, nationalist fever leads otherwise good people to vehemently shout down honest questioning and dissent, then put us in a choke hold while they drag us away. Shame on you, America, who chooses to be deceived, to pay money to listen to criminals reinforce your nationalist pride while soldiers and children die because of your lack of courage. Shame…

Something “Very Wrong” in State Dept History Office

June 8, 2009
FAS Project on Government Secrecy s Secrecy News

An Inspector General review (pdf) of the State Department Office of the Historian (HO) last month confirmed that there were serious management defects in the Office and recommended reassignment of its Director as well as other changes.

The Office of the Historian is responsible for production of the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, which is the official documentary history of U.S. foreign policy and one of the most important vehicles for declassification of historical records.

Allegations of mismanagement and declining performance had surrounded the Office for years until the Chairman of the State Department Historical Advisory Committee, Prof. Wm. Roger Louis, resigned last December to dramatize his concerns that the FRUS series was “at risk.” (See “State Dept: Crisis in the Foreign Relations Series,” Secrecy News, December 11, 2008).

“In varying degrees, nearly 75 percent of the present HO employees interviewed … were critical of the way the office is run,” the IG reported. “They alleged favoritism, cronyism, a lack of transparency, lack of interest in the FRUS, disparagement of the staff, suspicion, an absence of leadership, and, in general, the creation of an unhappy workplace.”

With plummeting employee morale and departures of experienced staff historians, “something in HO is very wrong,” the Inspector General concluded. “HO is suffering from, and has for some time been handicapped by, serious mismanagement for which the director must be held accountable…. Despite any mitigating factors that may exist in favor of the director, this situation cannot be allowed to continue.”

“It is a devastating indictment,” said Prof.…

Philadelphia Inquirer Continues Excellent Coverage of 9/11-Saudi Lawsuit

June 9, 2009
By Chris Mondics
Inquirer Staff Writer
The Philadelphia Inquirer

At the moment the north tower of the World Trade Center collapsed at 10:28
a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, Sharon Premoli was scrambling up an escalator from the
below-ground concourse toward the street with dozens of other office workers
in a desperate bid to escape.

She looked behind her and saw two things that are burned forever in her memory:
A human chain of evacuees riding the escalator and a boiling cloud of dust and
debris racing toward them.

The force of that swirling storm picked her up and threw her into nearby storefront.
After she awoke, she said, she soon realized she was lying on the lifeless body
of a man and that she was covered with his blood.

"I remember taking my nails and scraping my tongue to remove the debris
from my mouth," said Premoli, at the time a vice president for development
with a financial services software company based in the North Tower. "I
tried to get up and I realized I was lying on the body, and I am profoundly
haunted by that."

Strip away all the arcana and legal angels dancing on heads of pins, and Premoli
is the human face of litigation alleging Saudi Arabia financed the 9/11 hijackers.

She is one of 6,000 World Trade Center victims and their families who have
charged in lawsuits that the government of Saudi Arabia or its officials funded
Islamic charities that in turn… Continue reading

Anthrax War – Dead Silence

The provocative new film and book about the untold story of the 2001 U.S. Anthrax Attacks and the dark secrets of the shadowy world of modern day germ weapons research.

Anthrax War film poster

 

“Fear and Terror on The Anthrax Trail” – Anthrax War Trailer:

When the 2001 anthrax attacks hit the USA in the days following 9/11, it was like a one-two punch against the Republic. Workers in New York’s media center who had seen the planes swoop too low over their heads en route to the Twin Tower were now terrified of their mail. In Washington, Capitol Hill was evacuated and White House staffers were chewing CIPRO tablets.

It was our scariest collective nightmare come to life – the attack of deadly invisible bugs. It seemed like a self-fulfilling prophecy, the preceding years filled as they were with scores of films, best-selling books, TV shows and articles on the coming of “Bio-Terror.” Indeed, for the first time in history, national leaders and the military actually acted out high-tech “germ attack” war games, one of which had a scenario shockingly close to the actual events.

So after the government pledged the most thorough investigation it could muster, we hoped the feds would get to the bottom of it all. Thus, we were saddened but not really surprised when the attacks disappeared from public discourse – unmentioned, for example, by any major candidate during the 2008 election contest. And when the FBI announced suddenly last summer that the cold case was red-hot, identified… Continue reading

Encouraging Martyrdom Rather than Accessing Truth

U.S. May Permit 9/11 Guilty Pleas in Capital Cases

By WILLIAM GLABERSON
June 5, 2009
Full story published at New York Times

The Obama administration is considering a change in the law for the military commissions at the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, that would clear the way for detainees facing the death penalty to plead guilty without a full trial.

The provision could permit military prosecutors to avoid airing the details of brutal interrogation techniques. It could also allow the five detainees who have been charged with the Sept. 11 attacks to achieve their stated goal of pleading guilty to gain what they have called martyrdom.

The proposal, in a draft of legislation that would be submitted to Congress, has not been publicly disclosed. It was circulated to officials under restrictions requiring secrecy. People who have read or been briefed on it said it had been presented to Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates by an administration task force on detention.

The proposal would ease what has come to be recognized as the government’s difficult task of prosecuting men who have confessed to terrorism but whose cases present challenges. Much of the evidence against the men accused in the Sept. 11 case, as well as against other detainees, is believed to have come from confessions they gave during intense interrogations at secret C.I.A. prisons. In any proceeding, the reliability of those statements would be challenged, making trials difficult and drawing new political pressure over detainee treatment.

Some experts on the commissions said such a proposal would raise new questions about the fairness of a system that has been criticized as permitting shortcuts to assure convictions.…

In Latest Deflection Spin, Dick Cheney Blames 9/11 on Richard Clarke

Dick Uncut: “Daily Show” Calls Out Cheney For Blaming 9/11
On Richard Clarke (VIDEO)

June 6, 2009

HuffingtonPost.com:

Thanks to a recent appearance at the National Press Club, Dick Cheney blamed
Richard Clarke for leaving the nation vulnerable to attack ahead of 9/11 saying,
“He obviously missed it.” Cheney was referring to the threat from
al Qaeda which Clarke had emphatically
warned the administration about several times
before the fall of 2001.

Jon Stewart was not pleased with Dick Cheney for these accusations, nor the
members of the National Press Club who failed to challenge him about the assertion.
In a segment called “Dick Uncut,” Stewart used dark humor to take
both the former Vice President and the media to task for the events leading
up to 9/11 through the waterboarding of detainees. It simultaneously makes you
laugh and want to punch a whole through the wall.

Cheney Blames Richard Clarke For 9/11: ‘He Missed
It’

By Ali Frick
June 1st, 2009

Writing in Sunday’s Washington Post, Richard Clarke, the former counterterrorism
chief under Presidents Clinton and Bush, slammed Dick Cheney and Condoleezza
Rice
for invoking what he called “the White House 9/11 trauma defense”
— namely, the shock of 9/11 was so great as to justify all and any actions
taken in the name of national defense. Clarke called the decisions on interrogations,
detentions, and Iraq were all “wrong,” and the White House panic
proved that Cheney and company had simply been ignoring the warning signs:

Cheney’s admission that 9/11 caused him to reassess the threats to
the nation only underscores how, for months, top officials had ignored warnings
from the CIA and the NSC staff that urgent action was needed to preempt a
major al-Qaeda attack.

’9/11 Press for Truth’ on Channel 12 Draws Huge Support from Colorado Public Television Viewers
Program will repeat at 2:00, 9:00 and midnight on Saturday

DENVER — (June 4, 2009) — KBDI has always been at the forefront of controversial programming and last night was no exception. As the first broadcast station in the United States to air the controversial documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, which claims a 9/11 cover-up, KBDI showed that it is not afraid to touch on sensitive subjects.

Due to viewer response to the program, Channel 12 will repeat the program Saturday, June 6 at 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., followed by an encore at midnight.

During the premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at the World Trade Center, and 9/11 Press for Truth producer Kyle Hence and director Ray Nowosielski were in the studio to give more insight into why they believed 9/11 was a cover-up and why the American public should be screaming for answers.

Supporters of the documentary hope that because of the risk KBDI took by putting 9/11 Press for Truth on the air that more PBS stations across the nation will take a chance and broadcast the controversial documentary.

Press for Truth’s producer Kyle Hence already has heard the cries saying people from all over the country have been forwarding his e-mails on… Continue reading

9/11 Metastasizing: the Left’s Co-Dependency

by Heckler
Posted June 3, 2009
DailyKos.com

This may be the shortest lived Diary on Kos history, begun only one week ago, mainly in response to the banishment of Tocque DeVille. I endeavor not to stray beyond the barricades of the Rules, but if I too face exile, all I ask of Kos and Meteor Blades before the guillotine is pulled is as much thoughtful consideration of these issues as I have given them…

In The Shock Doctrine, Naomi Klein relates how nations brutalized by the Chicago School’s savage capitalism and the Dirty War juntas enforcing it have recovered and developed a healthy immunity against more eviscerating shock therapy:

Any strategy based on exploiting the window of opportunity opened by a traumatic shock relies heavily on the element of surprise… in North America, the September 11 attacks were, at first pure event, raw reality, unprocessed by story, narrative or anything that could bridge the gap between reality and understanding. Without a story, we are, as many of us were after September 11, intensely vulnerable to those people who take advantage of chaos for their own ends. As soon as we have a new narrative that offers perspective on the shocking events, we become reoriented and the world begins to make sense again.

That psychology pertains on both the individual and societal levels: a trauma that is never dealt with openly, but suppressed in the subconscious, festers, reinforcing crippling habits and sabotaging recovery. Maybe it is our reigning paradigm of dogmatic… Continue reading

A Presentation by
Janette MacKinlay
JanetteMacKinlay.com

“My love of art and culture drew me to New York City in the fall of
1997… The morning of September 11, 2001, found us in our 4th floor loft
at 110 Liberty St. watching history unfold before our eyes…

“I returned to… the Bay Area in mid-October 2001. As the shock slowly
wore off, I worked on a series of multi-media floral interpretations… As
time goes on I continue to reflect on and process the events of 9/11 through
a collection of art I call ‘The Need To Remember.’ I hope you find solace
in its folds.” – Janette MacKinlay http://theneedtoremember.com/

Fortunate book cover

Some of Janette’s art pieces will be exhibited, and her book
Fortunate
– A Personal Diary of 9/11
will be available. This event is a fundraiser
for NYCCAN – The New York City Coalition
For Accountability Now
. NYCCAN is gathering signatures in New York City
to place a referendum on the ballot in the November, 2009 General Election to
mandate the formation of a new investigation into 9/11, one with subpoena power.

Prior to Janette’s presentation, Jenn Rogar will perform some of the songs from her debut album Place Called Humanity. Jenn sings “… powerfully passionate songs about peace, justice, and social change that are described as healing.” – from cdbaby.com/cd/rogarjenn

How Important is Cheney’s Admission that There was NEVER Any Evidence Linking Iraq and 9/11?

Washingtonsblog.com

Cheney said in an interview on Fox News:

“On the question of whether or not Iraq was involved in 9-11, there was never any evidence to prove that,” he told the Fox host. “There was “some reporting early on … but that was never borne out… [President] George [Bush] … did say and did testify that there was an ongoing relationship between al-Qaeda and Iraq, but no proof that Iraq was involved in 9-11.”

How important is Cheney’s admission?

Well, 5 hours after the 9/11 attacks, Donald Rumsfeld said “my interest is to hit Saddam” .

He also said “Go massive . . . Sweep it all up. Things related and not.”

And at 2:40 p.m. on September 11th, in a memorandum of discussions between top administration officials, several lines below the statement “judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [that is, Saddam Hussein] at same time”, is the statement “Hard to get a good case.” In other words, top officials knew that there wasn’t a good case that Hussein was behind 9/11, but they wanted to use the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to justify war with Iraq anyway.

Moreover, “Ten days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush was told in a highly classified briefing that the U.S. intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the [9/11] attacks and that there was scant credible evidence that Iraq had any significant collaborative… Continue reading

Navy Vet Honored, Foiled Israeli Attack

By Ray McGovern
Consortiumnews.com

What’s the difference between murder and massacre?

The answer is Terry Halbardier, whose bravery and ingenuity as a 23-year-old Navy seaman spelled the difference between the murder of 34 of the USS Liberty crew and the intended massacre of all 294.

The date was June 8, 1967; and for the families of the 34 murdered and for the Liberty’s survivors and their families, it is a “date which will live in infamy” — like the date of an earlier surprise attack on the U.S. Navy.

The infamy is two-fold: (1) the Liberty, a virtually defenseless intelligence collection platform prominently flying an American flag in international waters, came under deliberate attack by Israeli aircraft and three 60-ton Israeli torpedo boats off the coast of the Sinai on a cloudless June afternoon during the six-day Israeli-Arab war; and (2) President Lyndon Johnson called back carrier aircraft dispatched to defend the Liberty lest Israel be embarrassed — the start of an unconscionable cover-up, including top Navy brass, that persists to this day.

Given all they have been through, the Liberty survivors and other veterans — who joined Halbardier to celebrate his belated receipt of the Silver Star — can be forgiven for having doubted that this day would ever come.

In the award ceremony at the Visalia (California) office of Rep. Devin Nunes, the Republican congressman pinned the Silver Star next to the Purple Heart that Halbardier found in his home mailbox three years ago.

Nunes said, “The government… Continue reading
