NYC Ballot Initiative Press Conference with Cynthia McKinney Green Party Presidential Candidate.
NYC, under its charter revision initiative law, has the jurisdiction to create a commission to investigate 9/11, which occurred in NYC. Cynthia McKinney, as a leader in the call for the investigation, calls for support for the ballot initiative. She talks about the government lies and what we must do to investigate the truth.

In a famous book by Antoine de Saint Exupery, a little prince from another planet asks the narrator to draw a sheep. After several unsatisfactory attempts, the narrator simply draws a box and tells the little prince that the sheep is in the box. The little prince then exclaims — “That is exactly the way I wanted it!” 1
Just so, the Bush Administration asked its scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for an explanation as to what happened at the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11. In response to this request, NIST drew up a series of fanciful stories over a period of years, each story differing from the previous one. Finally, after seven long years, NIST published its last story for WTC 7 by simply saying, in effect: “The explanation is in our computer.” 2
As expected, however, this explanation in a box leaves much to be desired for those of us who prefer to live in reality, instead of in a fictional world. On the other hand, we are learning something from NIST with this new report, and that is that when government scientists begin working for a political agenda above all else, there is no limit to the extent of deception that they will engage in. We also know that those who have produced the NIST WTC reports must now assume personal responsibility for the ongoing 9/11 Wars, and the millions of deaths that will result from those wars.…Continue reading

New Documentary Takes a Look at the 9/11 Truth Movement
On the anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, British filmmaker Dean
Puckett releases “The Elephant in the Room,” a new award-winning film
documenting his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Los Angeles September 10, 2008 — On the anniversary of the attacks of September
11th, British filmmaker Dean Puckett releases “The Elephant in the Room,”
a new award-winning film documenting his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement.
The Movement can best be described as a group of citizen activists from around
the world who don’t believe the U.S. government’s explanation of what happened
on September 11th. While there are a growing number of law enforcement personnel,
pilots, architects, engineers, and scientists joining the ranks, they have been
called everything from ‘patriots’ to ‘conspiracy theorists’ – with some right
wing talk show hosts going so far as to call them ‘jihadists.’
But In the documentary, “The Elephant in the Room”, the viewer is
introduced to folks who aren’t as dangerous as some would believe. They just
happen to be average citizens asking some very simple questions.
The film features interviews with numerous 9/11 Truth activists including Former
Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (who is currently running for President)
and William Rodriguez, a janitor of 20 years at the World Trade Center, who
testified that he heard and felt explosions in his building before it was hit
by a plane. Also in the film is Richard… Continue reading

The 7th anniversary of September 11, 2001 is approaching and it seems like
a good time to reflect on what our nation has lost since that tragic day and
what we can do to go forward.
I do not think that anyone alive on that day will forget the shock that struck
our nation when the symbols of US capitalism and militarism were struck out
of the clear blue sky. I was in panic mode for a few days, because I did not
hear from Casey who was stationed at Ft. Hood on that day and his base went
into lock-down and he was too busy to call. Even though we mourn with our fellow
Americans, the loss of over 3000 innocent people and the pain their families
have had to deal with, the attacks of 9-11 have touched every American.
There are several ways to look at 9-11:
– 9-11 was planned and executed by the US government.
— BushCo did not plan 9-11, but they knew it was going to happen and
did nothing to prevent it and, in fact, may have allowed it to happen.
— 9-11 was planned and executed by a group of 17 terrorists (14 of them
from Saudi Arabia) without the foreknowledge of the US government and we were
attacked because the terrorists "hated our freedoms and democracy."
Whichever of the theories is true, one thing is for sure: the Bush regime’s
response to 9-11 was woefully… Continue reading

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Seven years after the Sept. 11 attacks, there is no
consensus outside the United States that Islamist militants from al Qaeda were
responsible, according to an international poll published Wednesday.
The survey of 16,063 people in 17 nations found majorities in only nine countries
believe al Qaeda was behind the attacks on New York and Washington that killed
about 3,000 people in 2001.
U.S. officials squarely blame al Qaeda, whose leader Osama bin Laden has boasted
of organizing the suicide attacks by his followers using hijacked commercial
On average, 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible, 15
percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some
other perpetrator. One in four people said they did not know who was behind
The poll was conducted by WorldPublicOpinion.org, a collaborative project of
research centers in various countries managed by the Program on International
Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland in the United States.
In Europe, al Qaeda was cited by 56 percent of Britons and Italians, 63 percent
of French and 64 percent of Germans. The U.S. government was to blame, according
to 23 percent of Germans and 15 percent of Italians.
Respondents in the Middle East were especially likely to name a perpetrator
other than al Qaeda, the poll found.
Israel was behind the attacks, said 43 percent of people in Egypt, 31 percent

Canada’s 9/11 Truth Movement reporting
The March on Ottawa 2008
is underway, and we have just received footage of the first leg, posted below.
Organizers will be updating footage as possible, adding it to Montreal
9/11 Truth site and March On Ottawa 2008
Last Sunday’s 9/11 truth protest in Brussels was a success!
BRUSSELS – SEPTEMBER 11, 2008
Last Sunday over 400 European truth activists ignored the rain and had a non-violent
march in Brussels. They gathered at 2 P.M. in front of the Berlaymont building
at Schuman, Brussels. At 3 P.M. they took a walk of 4 kilometers with a stop
at the US Embassy. Before the rally left, the organizers delivered a letter
to the assistant to Giulietto Chiesa, Euro-MP for Italy. Under police guidance
they tried to deliver a letter containing their request to start an independent
and international investigation to what happened in the U.S.A. just 7 years
ago. They were told that the embassy was closed and didn’t accept their letter
unless is was delivered by mail. There were no incidents during the protests,
and the organizers were once again very positive about the collaboration with
the Brussels Police.
Furthermore, the platform is endorsed by various Non Governmental Organizations
like The Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt (CATMD), CODIP, ReOpen911
and ATTAC Brussels. The first Belgian political party CAP (Comité Autre
Politique) joined the rally at the end.
The platform these people and organizations support is: "In solidarity
with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation of the 9/11
attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a serious decrease
of (y)our civil rights ("anti-terrorist"-acts, secret prisons, "Patriot
act", etc). We want European troops back home! We want European laws that

Seven years ago, criminal terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon
were carried out on September 11th by hijacked planes leading to the deaths of thousands
of people. A month later, key figures in the print and broadcast media and members
of Congress were sent envelopes containing very lethal and highly weaponized
anthrax, which led to the deaths of journalists and postal employees. After
the initial shock diminished, there were calls for explanations, investigations,
accountability and a reasoned response that did not include war. The administration
ignored or openly opposed them. Instead we went into a call for permanent wars
that would last beyond our lifetime, changes in civil liberties both overt and
covert, a takeover of state power by the executive branch, and the creation
of a national security emergency state that would somehow protect us.
Cynthia McKinney was one of the few voices of reason during that time in the
Congress. Long an opponent of militarism and wars abroad, she also called for
explanations and accountability when information began to come to light about
multiple advance warnings and apparent foreknowledge of the imminence and methods
of the attack inside government intelligence agencies that still failed to prevent
it. She supported calls by the families of the 9/11 victims for an official
investigation in what was being termed a “failure of intelligence”
even though it more closely resembled a failure of response, of standard operating
procedures, and of government officials and… Continue reading

Details from the point of view of organizer, Carol Brouillet, with photos from
Terry Koch, Christine, and others
Richard Gage, AIA spoke
at the rally and marched with us. (In August NIST
came out with its official explanation of the destruction of Building 7 and
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth are at the forefront of challenging it.
Support them also by signing their petition for a truly independent investigation.)
Wolman, Green Party Candidate in California District 1, founder of the New
Broom Coalition and Impeach Cheney-Bush, also a member of the National Impeachment
Network also spoke and marched with us.
Sadot, who came up with the musical classics “Cheney’s
in the Bunker,” and “The Ballad of William Rodriguez” was
supposed to be with us, but his truck broke down en route- 800 miles away in
Wyoming. This year we did have our best prop–the replica of the Commission
Report with the giant holes in it, which was made for the San Francisco Tea
Party for 9/11 Truth.
We also passed out thousands of cards to promote our upcoming event.

Each year around the anniversary of 9/11, I summarize what we ordinary citizens have learned since that awful day in 2001. This is the seventh annual look backwards, a 2008 update that contains new information and surmisings about those horrific events and what followed.
1. One 9/11 Size Fits All. What we now more fully understand is how the CheneyBush Administration utilized the murderous terrorism of 9/11 as the linchpin justification for their unfolding domestic and foreign agenda, much of it illegal, immoral and impeachable.
By and large, one can sum up that overall agenda as: Amass and control power in the U.S. and much of the world (“full-spectrum dominance”), and, in cahoots with their corporate supporters such as Halliburton and Blackwater, loot the federal treasury. All this was to be carried out secretly, with no accountability.
2. Iraq War Planning Began Before 9/11. We also know more about the nature of the lies (including forged documents) used by the Administration to sell the Iraq War, which attack already was in the planning stages well before 9/11.
The first faked document, by CIA forgers at the behest of White House officials, was a 2005 letter (back-dated 2001) supposedly coming from the then-Iraqi intelligence chief to his boss Saddam Hussein mentioning alleged “facts” that established a tie-in between 9/11, Al-Qaida and Iraq and about Saddam’s supposed purchase of uranium. The official, Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, who had been an informant for the U.S. during… Continue reading

It would be so nice if something made sense for a change.
–Alice, from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
We’re hurtling down the rabbit hole. Gravity’s refuted. Black is white, and white turns bitter, transfigured by a mawkish Mad Hatter blithely chewing up our Constitution, juggling missile-shaped teacups, splashing sweet, light crude and cold blood everywhere. To anyone who’s passed through the last eight years believing whatever George W. Bush and his minions have blown their way, well, best of luck to you, because most of it hasn’t been true.
Does that mean, then, that W. and his cronies were behind the 9-11 attacks? Of course not. Some say, however, if it looks, waddles and quacks like a duck and lays duck eggs, then perhaps it’s time we re-examine it under oath, because it just might be a friggin’ duck. (Fact: Nixon White House audiotapes reveal Tricky Dick literally quacking like a duck. Nixon was a lot of things, but ducky wasn’t one of them.)
We’re all mad here.
–the Cheshire Cat
Ken Jenkins, a Marin-based videographer, electrical engineer and activist with the 9-11 Truth group, tells of one who responded to certain provocative conjecture with “I wouldn’t believe it–even if it were true.” It , of course, is the widely held and yet wildly contentious belief that elements within our own government bear responsibility for the… Continue reading
‘Guns and Butter‘ affirms that if you’re not paranoid . . .
By P. Joseph Potocki
Back in 2002, on the very first anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, KPFA 94.1-FM radio in Berkeley launched Guns and Butter , a locally produced, regionally broadcast weekly show that is possibly progressive radio’s most subversive. The program features muckraking intelligentsia from the fringe looking in and those from the geopolitical eye of the storm looking out. It’s The X-Files for real–minus any little green men.
Guns and Butter ‘s impeccably produced interviews showcase hard-nosed investigators digging deep, revealing unsanctioned truths about the power elite, along with legal experts making the case for corporate criminal prosecutions and administration impeachments. Shows have highlighted urban squatters, human rights advocates and crusading sinners turned saints, to name but a few.
The phrase ” Guns and Butter ,” says host Bonnie Faulkner, often pops up in the business section of newspapers. “Lyndon Johnson was running a ‘ Guns and Butter ‘ war in Vietnam. He was both conducting a military war, but also a war on poverty.”
Guns and Butter the show gives voice to whistleblowers, disenchanted military insiders and former high-level spooks, and to radical economists, pit-bull researchers and geopolitical wunderkinds. The program is all about money, powerful establishment baddies, plots, schemes and Cassandras. Subject matter ranges from the dangers threatening our democracy to connections between capitalism and environmental destruction; from revelations of unprecedented graft, greed, banal cabals and gruesome conspiracies to buried… Continue reading
9/11 Truth Seeker
On Sunday 7th September, about 400 protestors marched in Brussels during the second edition of the United for Truth March.
Despite the bad weather and the fact that the March took place during the same day as another popular event, the Belt (Belgian cycling event for the family), the number of protestors had doubled since the first edition of 2007. But measured against the enormous amount of work that went before it — months of campaigning in which literally thousands of posters had been put up — and the fact that the UFT-website announced that there would be at least 475 marchers, one cannot really say it was a tremendous success.
After a long wait to assemble at the Brussels Shuman Square (we were supposed to start marching at 2pm, but we got it underway only around 3pm), the trek through Brussels started. It was a 4 kilometer walk. What should have been the highlight of the march, was the handing over of our letter (demanding an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11), to an employee of the American Embassy in Brussels, became the low point of the day. One of the protestors, who went along with the delegates to hand over the letter, almost got arrested for merely running around with a camera. The delegates were turned away and told to send the letter by mail… For some, yours truly included, it was something not totally unexpected, but a letdown nonetheless.… Continue reading

An Interview with David Ray Griffin
On September 11, I entertained a couple of house guests, senior journalists from Scandinavia. I remember watching in horror and disbelief the unfolding drama, as the United States was being subjected to multiple deadly attacks on-screen. I turned to the international affairs editor of a major Danish paper and told her “This could not have been done by al-Qaida.” I am an Israeli and, as such, I have a fair “sixth sense” as to the capabilities of terrorists and their potential reach.
Enter David Ray Griffin. I was introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance. He is emeritus professor of philosophy of religion and theology at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University. He has published over 30 books, including eight about 9/11, the best known of which is “The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and the Exposé.”
On the face of it, his credentials with regards to intelligence analysis are hardly relevant, let alone impressive. But, to underestimate him would be a grave error. Being a philosopher, he is highly trained and utterly qualified to assess the credibility of data; the validity and consistency of theories (including conspiracy theories); and the rationality and logic of hypotheses. These qualifications made him arguably the most visible and senior member of what came to be known as the 9/11 Truth Movement.
In our exchange, he proved to be tolerant of dissenting views, open to debate, and invariably possessed of… Continue reading

Last night, while Americans sat quietly expecting to watch a video ‘tribute’
to victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001–John McCain took
advantage of America’s good will to show a video falsely linking Iran to the
terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
At 9:11pm (CST), the MSNBC coverage cut to a video being projected onto the
main screen at the RNC. At that point, Tom Brokaw introduced the video as follows:
Tom Brokaw: OK, let’s go now, Keith, if we can, down to the floor. We want
to share with our viewers the ‘Tribute To The Victims of 9/11.’
So, that was the introduction the networks gave to the video–no doubt lifted
from a press release given to them by the RNC. Normal practice, I suppose. But
here is the astoundingly immoral thing that happened next, rather than show
a video ‘tribute’ to the victims of 9/11, the McCain team showed a video ‘history’
of 9/11 that began like this:
(Fade to black as ominous slow piano music plays)
(Fade in: iconic image of Iranian revolutionaries from the late 1970s holding
Narrator: The first attack occured in Iran.
(MSNBC feed now shows picture of Iranian hostage crisis with title ’9/11
Narrator: 444 days–America held hostage.
(Cut to: image of 1998 Al Qaeda bombings of Kenya and Somalia)
Narrator: Then again.
(Cut to: second image of 1998 Al Qaeda bombing of Kenya and Somalia)
Narrator: And again.… Continue reading
