President Obama: 9/11 Families Ask You to Watch ’9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out’

June 19, 2012
John-Michael Talboo’s blog at 911blogger.com

OgzYpIoXfHUPJGD 320x240 croppedSupport the 9/11 families and others who are asking President Obama to review the evidence in the documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out

PETITION

- Who: President Barak Obama

- Sponsored by: 9/11 family members, Michele Little, Jane Pollicino, Bob McIlvaine, Josef Princiotta

In a new documentary, 43 high-rise architects, structural engineers, metallurgists, scientists, physicists, and explosives experts provide compelling proof of explosive controlled demolition in the destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.

Their examination of scientific evidence suggests that the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC7 was not adequately explained by the 9/11 Commission, FEMA, and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) reports, all of which contain serious errors and omissions.

Why should this film matter to you, the reader, 11 years later? How will it help for President Obama to see this film?

9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out challenges the roots of the policies that gave rise to (1) the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which have already cost more than a million lives and $1.3 trillion and have substantially contributed to our financial crisis; and (2) legislation such as the Patriot Act and NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act], which has severely impacted our civil liberties.

9/11 family members Michele Little, Jane Pollicino, Bob McIlvaine, and Josef Princiotta sponsored this documentary, produced and directed by Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. This nonprofit… Continue reading

BBC Action Reminder: Don’t Forget to Hold the BBC Accountable

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

We don’t want you to miss this rare opportunity to support a 9/11 Truth campaign in England with the British Broadcasting Corporation. The BBC Trust will make a decision any day now on whether to have a meeting with three AE911Truth petition signers who have filed a complaint over the BBC’s biased coverage of 9/11.

Dozens of you already sent in the pre-written letters to support this campaign. However, we’d like to reach at least 200 supporter letters. Will you help?

In the June 5 edition of The Blueprint (AE911Truth’s newsletter) there was an article called “ Hold the BBC Accountable ”.

We are asking you to send two emails (already written) to support a campaign to persuade the BBC to report accurately about 9/11 as their Charter and Editorial Values require. If you write your own letter, that’s even better.

Here are the main points of that article: – BBC is part of the worldwide media cover-up of 9/11. – BBC has a legal obligation to present accurate and impartial news. – Complaints and appeals are allowed and must be addressed according to a specified process. – BBC coverage of 9/11 has been very biased. – Three AE911Truth petition signers have filed a complaint and are asking for our help. – What can you do to support this campaign? Send two email messages, already written for you: one to the BBC Trust and… Continue reading

Sept. 11 Health Fund Given Clearance to Cover Cancer

By Anemona Hartocollis
NYTimes.com

A federal health official’s ruling has cleared the way for 50 different types of cancer to be added to the list of sicknesses covered by a $4.3 billion fund set up to compensate and treat people exposed to the toxic smoke, dust and fumes in the months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The decision, released on Friday, came as a vindication for hundreds and perhaps thousands of people who have claimed — often in the face of resistance from public health officials — that their cancers were caused by their exposure to the dust cloud and debris thrown up by the attacks.

It will allow not only rescue workers but also volunteers, residents, schoolchildren and passers-by to apply for compensation and treatment for cancers developed in the aftermath of the attacks. The cancers will not be officially added to the list of covered illnesses until after a period of public comment and review that could last several months.

The decision, by Dr. John Howard, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, comes despite a current absence of evidence linking the attack to cancer, causing some skepticism among epidemiologists. It also reduces the amount of money for people suffering from ailments more conclusively linked to the Sept. 11 attacks, namely lung and other respiratory sicknesses.

And it poses a number of logistical challenges, since it will be difficult if not impossible to separate people who developed cancer as a result of ground… Continue reading

Expert Panel Reports False Accounts of US Political and Military Leaders on 9/11

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The 9/11 Consensus Panel

Massive National War Games on September 11th Raise Further Questions

NEW YORK, June 5, 2012 — New evidence shows that the September 11th activities of former President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were falsely reported by official sources.

Editor’s Note:
Update: This press release was picked up by the Wall Street Journal’s Marketplace, published May 25, 2012, here.

 

The 20-member 9/11 Consensus Panel analyzed evidence from press reports, FOIA requests, and archived 9/11 Commission file documents to produce eight new studies, released today.

The international Panel also discovered that four massive aerial practice exercises traditionally held in October were in full operation on 9/11. The largest, Global Guardian, held annually by NORAD and the US Strategic and Space Commands, had originally been scheduled for October 22-31 but was moved , along with Vigilant Guardian, to early September.

Although senior officials claimed no one could have predicted using hijacked planes as weapons, the military had been practicing similar exercises on 9/11 itself — and for years before it.

The Panel, discovering widespread reports of confusion and delays in the defense response, looked into who was overseeing the air defenses after the second Tower was hit at 9:03 AM.

Official sources claimed neither Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Joint Chiefs of Staff Acting Chairman General Richard Myers (filling in for General Hugh Shelton), nor war-room chief General Montague Winfield were available to take command until well… Continue reading

Judicial Vacancies on the Rise and More from CRS

Steven Aftergood
Secrecy News from FAS.org

President Obama began the fourth year of his presidency with more vacant circuit and district court judgeships than when he took office, a new report from the Congressional Research Service observed.

The growing number of vacancies in the federal judiciary and the factors that increasingly impede the successful nomination and confirmation of new judges were examined by CRS.

“District court vacancies have grown in number over the course of the Obama presidency, from 42 judgeships vacant when President Obama took office to 59 at present,” the CRS report said. During that period 150 district court judges were nominated but only 117 of them were confirmed.
 

Editor’s Note:
Although I’ve not yet had time to read all of these, the last CRS report listed here at Secrecy News looks like something those of interested in truth, transparency and accountability may wish to read, considering demanding truth is now considered subversive (or worse) …

 

“During the Obama presidency thus far,… fewer Obama district court nominees have been confirmed by the Senate than were confirmed during the first terms of the four preceding Presidents,” CRS found.

A copy of the new CRS report was obtained by Secrecy News. See Nominations to U.S. Circuit and District Courts by President Obama During the 111th and 112th Congresses , June 1, 2012

‘Americans don’t share global domination policies of their leaders’ RT talks to Peter Dale Scott

RT.com

RT talks to Peter Dale Scott – former diplomat, poet and prominent anti-war advocate. He says that the US corporate superstructure conglomerate – including financial interests, the defense industry, oil companies and the media – brazenly manipulate American society.

Watch RT LIVE on our website http://rt.com/on-air.

Transcript reprinted from source:

The US corporate superstructure conglomerate – including financial interests, the defense industry, oil companies and the media – brazenly manipulate American society, shares Peter Dale Scott, former diplomat, poet and prominent anti-war advocate.

RT: Why do you think such a concept as Democracy is being so grossly misused?

Peter Dale Scott: It is true, especially in the last 15-20 years, that America has used these slogans of democracy and freedom as a way of expanding their sphere of influence in the world.

We have these two foundations, one Democratic, one Republican, doing what the CIA used to do — putting money into other countries’ elections that I think is quite inappropriate.

Yes, I would like to see more democracy and freedom in the world, but it has to be autochthonous, it has to grow out of the country, it is not something you can blast in. In Libya, it was totally pushed from outside.

I think history is going to judge the Libya thing from a very negative assessment, what was done against Gaddafi.

RT: Do you think it’s really idealism or the lack of necessary analysis or consideration on the part of people… Continue reading

Over 700 pages of CIA 9/11-related records released

June 4, 2012
Intelwire.com

The CIA has released nearly 800 pages of newly declassified documents on Al Qaeda and the September 11 attacks.

The documents were released in response to an INTELWIRE Freedom of Information Act request for material referenced by the 9/11 Commission. Numerous documents were withheld, and those that were released have been heavily redacted. Despite this, it is highly unusual to receive any material from the CIA in response to a FOIA request, and they provide a fascinating look at the state of the agency’s understanding of Al Qaeda over the years.

While much of the material has been previously described, by the 9/11 Commission and other sources, seeing the actual documents still has an impact. For instance, the following extracts: (See source).

The documents are presented here in two large PDFs. Each individual document is bookmarked within the PDF. Almost everything in the release was previously classified secret or top secret. The CIA also released several items already available on its Web site or in public testimony, which I omitted.

The documents are presented here in no particular order but I grouped material near the top related to warnings about the activities of Khalid Al Mihdhar, one of the hijackers, and material related to 1998 efforts to capture or kill Osama bin Laden together in roughly chronological order.

You are welcome to report from these documents, but you must credit Intelwire.com. If you wish to break out a specific document for a major media outlet, contact me.…

9/11 ‘truther’ leading Egyptian presidential race

by Ben Birnbaum
WashingtonTimes.com

An Islamist who believes that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States were an American conspiracy is the front-runner in Egypt’s presidential race, a new poll shows.

Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, formerly a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, led the field of 13 candidates with 32 percent of the vote in a survey released Monday by the Washington-based Brookings Institution.

Mr. Abolfotoh expressed his views on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an interview last year with Egypt scholar Eric Trager.

Mr. Trager, now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, quoted Mr. Abolfotoh as saying:

“It was too big an operation …. They [the United States] didn’t bring this crime before the U.S. justice system until now. Why? Because it’s part of a conspiracy.”

Mounting Evidence: Debunking the War on Terror that Washington Still Wants to Wage

May 24, 2012
NoLiesRadio.org

Paul W. Rea, PhD, presents Mounting Evidence: Debunking the War on Terror that Washington Still Wants to Wage. Event will be live-cast by No Lies Radio. Details below.

Imagoe fo cover of Mounting EvidenceIn Mounting Evidence, Paul W. Rea, PhD, delivers an amply-researched critique of the 9/11 Commission and debunks the War on Terror. There’s little doubt the tragic attacks on 9/11 soon became the defining events of our time, shaping much of what has followed. But even now, over a decade later, how well does the public actually understand them? Other researchers have written about key facets of 9/11 — the fall of World Trade Center buildings, the air-defense failures, the backgrounds of the hijackers, or the role of the Saudi funders. In Mounting Evidence, Dr. Rea shows how, by understanding the shattering events of that dark day, Americans can end seemingly endless wars and take back personal liberties they’ve lost.

Dr. Rea feels so committed to bringing historical truth to the events of 9/11 that he has made his book, Mounting Evidence, available on Amazon.com.

Dr. Paul W. Rea has taught humanities at Ohio State University, the University of Northern Colorado and St. Mary’s College of California. Now a full-time researcher and writer, Dr. Rea focuses on political, peace and environmental issues.

Petition: Revise the US Government Final Report on Collapse of Building 7

May 22, 2012

We have been asked to post notice of the following petition, originally posted May 7, 2012, which has a goal of being delivered to the National Institute of Standards and Technology:

Avaaz Community Petitions has made available this petition, which at this time has 745 signatures. For more information about the organization, please see Avaaz.org/about.

Wording of petition:

Why this is important

Building 7 of the World Trade Center, a 47 story building, contained offices of the CIA, the Secret Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) several financial institutions and then-Mayor Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management.

Despite never being hit by an airplane, Building 7 was reduced to a pile of rubble in about 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001. After 9/11 this fact has been widely covered up by the U.S. mass media and was even omitted from the 9/11 Commission Report.

NIST, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (a U.S. government agency) was authorized by Congress to determine “why and how WTC 7 collapsed.” NIST produced a preliminary draft of their final report in August, 2008 omitting the fact that Building 7 fell at free fall acceleration for part of its descent. After a physicist challenged NIST on this point the final report, in November 2008 admitted free fall acceleration for 105′ or 2.5 seconds.

NIST wrote, “A more detailed analysis of the descent of the north face found . . . (2) a freefall descent over approximately… Continue reading

The U.S. Internment Camp: Prison for a New American Century

A newly uncovered Army document details U.S. internment camps on American soil .

Ryan Cummings, Contributor Activist Post

Photo of prison The topic of civilian internment camps in the United States has been largely dismissed as a paranoid “conspiracy theory” by the mainstream media. Recent legislation and newly uncovered government documents, however, reveal the sad truth: The United States is quickly descending into a full-blown authoritarian police state.

NDAA 2012: Patriot Act Part Two

On December 31, 2011, while the majority of Americans were busy watching balls drop and drinking themselves into oblivion, President Obama quietly signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. This unprecedented legislation effectively codified the executive branch’s authority to indefinitely detain American citizens without trial, stripping them of their Constitutional right to due process and habeas corpus.

Under this legislation, if you are simply “suspected” of providing support to a group the government classifies as a terrorist organization–or an affiliate or associated force of said organization–you can be rounded up and detained until the end of the “War on Terror”–a war, according to policy makers, that has no end.

Over the course of this endless and prefabricated war, the government’s definition of “terrorist” has slowly shifted post 9/11 from Al Qaeda, a group of dubious power initially funded and supported by the CIA and the Pakistani ISI , to such “domestic terrorists” as Occupy Wall Street protestors , pro-life advocates and Ron Paul supporters . When the FBI set-up a band of dimwitted… Continue reading

‘Underwear bomber’ was working for the CIA

Bomber involved in plot to attack US-bound jet was working as an informer with
Saudi intelligence and the CIA, it has emerged

By Paul Harris and Ed Pilkington
May 8, 2012
The
Guardian

A would-be "underwear bomber" involved in a plot to attack a US-based
jet was in fact working as an undercover informer with Saudi intelligence and
the CIA, it has emerged.

The revelation is the latest twist in an increasingly bizarre story about the
disruption of an apparent attempt by al-Qaida to strike at a high-profile American
target using a sophisticated device hidden in the clothing of an attacker.

The plot, which the White House said on Monday had involved the seizing of
an underwear bomb by authorities in the Middle East sometime in the last 10
days, had caused alarm throughout the US.

It has also been linked to a suspected US drone strike in Yemen where two Yemeni
members of al-Qaida were killed by a missile attack on their car on Sunday,
one of them a senior militant, Fahd Mohammed Ahmed al-Quso.

But the news that the individual at the heart of the bomb plot was in fact
an informer for US intelligence is likely to raise just as many questions as
it answers.

Citing US and Yemeni officials, Associated Press reported that the unnamed
informant was working under cover for the Saudis and the CIA when he was given
the bomb, which was of a new non-metallic type aimed at getting past airport
security.

Osama, Obama, and Us: A Shocking Display of Propaganda from NBC

By Russ Baker
WhoWhatWhy.com

Image of the Situation Room

When I got an email announcing an exclusive from NBC about the raid that, we’re told, resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, I dared raise my hopes. The last time a major media organization, the New Yorker , had promised us the inside story about what really happened on that day in early May, 2011, we got a major bit of disinformation .

But, being an optimist, I set my TV to record the hour on NBC’s newsmagazine show, Rock Center, and went out to dinner. When I returned, I settled in and began watching.

I heard the dramatic music, and listened to correspondent Brian Williams’s dramatic intro. Then I began waiting for answers. I waited. And waited. The answers never came. Can you believe an entire hour (or about half an hour plus endless ads) and not one interesting revelation? Can you believe that almost the entire thing dealt with how people in the White House felt that day, what kind of chairs they sat in, etc, and almost nothing on the details of the raid or the disposition of the body? Even the details that sounded vaguely interesting, like the fact that the chopper that crashed was some kind of new, secret craft, were already known long ago.

I got a feeling that the whole thing had been carefully rehearsed, and then I thought: Why would the White House give NBC an exclusive, “first-time” look inside the White House Situation Room? Well,… Continue reading

No Justice for 9/11 Victims Found Here

Statement of September 11th Advocates Regarding Guantánamo Bay Military Tribunals

For Immediate Release
May 4, 2012

It would seem that the U.S. Government found itself in a conundrum when they allowed prisoners, like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), to be tortured in secret prisons around the world. Once tortured, any confession or testimony from KSM, or others, could not be deemed reliable. Furthermore, the focus of the eventual proceedings would become a trial about the practice of torture, instead of being a trial about alleged terrorist crimes. That would have been untenable for the U.S. Government, which wants to avoid any and all accountability for their own crimes of torture.

In order to bypass potential discussion of torture, the latest Chief Prosecutor for the Military Commissions, Brig. General Mark Martins, found a willing witness in Majid Khan, a fellow GITMO inmate to KSM. Khan himself was not involved in the 9/11 plot. He supposedly got his information from time spent behind bars at GITMO with KSM. Kahn will be allowed to give this hearsay evidence against KSM in return for a reduced sentence. However, Khan’s sentencing won’t take place for four years. It seems the Prosecution is pinning their hopes and dreams on Khan’s upcoming performance. None of this lends credibility to an already suspect system.

Additionally, with campaigning for the upcoming Presidential elections heating up, the timing of this latest attempt at justice for 9/11 is exploitive at best.
