9/11 Commission

9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out

New book: 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out

Edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott
Olive Branch Press (Interlink Books)

Pre-pub Review (more follow…)
“This is the most important book of our time. Distinguished national and international scientists and scholars present massive evidence that The 9/11 Commission Report is a hoax and that the 9/11 “terrorist attack” has been manipulated to serve a hegemonic agenda in the Middle East. The book’s call for a truly independent panel of experts to be empowered to bring out the true facts must be heeded or Americans will never again live under accountable government.” — Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury during the Reagan administration
 

Editor’s Note:
Truth activists can celebrate Thanksgiving astonishingly early this year given the precocious wealth of resources now hitting theaters and book shops across the land.…

Buzzflash: “Everyone knows it’s coming.”

Will the Democrats Be Ready for Rove’s 2006 October Fright Fest?

August 24, 2006

Everyone knows it’s coming.

Rove doesn’t deviate from his playbook; and it’s his third time around with this one.

So what’s going to the terrorist fright just before the election? Will Osama be taken out of deep freeze? Will a videotape suddenly be “found” in which Osama declares that he wants a Democratic Congress? Will a terrorist cell be broken up the week before the election, allegedly plotting to fly planes into 12 American cities and bomb the Super Bowl with Weapons of Mass Destruction that Saddam gave them from his cell in Iraq?…

World Trade Center Premieres, 9-11 Truth Movement Responds

by Carol Brouillet

God bless the Grand Lake spirit.

Oliver Stone’s films have deeply touched many people’s lives, including my own. His film, JFK, prompted me to research the CIA and catalyzed my activism. I wrote to Stone twice, when we were working on one of the first American 9/11 truth documentaries, and later when I heard that he was making a film about 9/11. I sent him materials, books, documentaries about 9/11, and encouraged him to tell William Rodriguez’s story.…

“Information Clearing House” — — I received a number of intelligent responses from readers of my August 14 column, “Gullible Americans,” The letters deserve a reply. Moreover, some contain important points that should be shared with a wider audience. Pundits such as myself are not the only people who have interesting things to say. Considering the number of letters and the time it would require to respond individually, I am replying instead in this column.…

9/11 Truth Movement Gets a Nudge, a Bump and a Jolt

Is The Official Story Falling Apart? Or Are We Seeing An Un-Controlled Demolition?

– CNN, Westminster John Knox Press, Air America help move the story along

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

In the past few weeks the 9/11 Truth Movement has continued to move forward, propelled by a gentle nudge from a mainstream news source, a solid bump from the publishing arm of a major American church, and a full-fledged jolt from Air America.

Marvelous fraternal effort from the democracy zealots at bradblog.com, the greatest vote theft vigilantes on the web.…

Gullible Americans

By Paul Craig Roberts

Information Clearing House

I was in China when a July Harris Poll reported that 50 percent of Americans still believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when Bush invaded that country, and that 64 percent of Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein had strong links with Al Qaeda.

The Chinese leaders and intellectuals with whom I was meeting were incredulous. How could a majority of the population in an allegedly free country with an allegedly free press be so totally misinformed?…

A Trial Lawyer’s Perspective on 9/11 Truth

by William Veale

As a relative late-comer to this cause, it is with caution that I wade into these turbulent waters. It is apparent, however, that a certain disunity threatens to destroy the amazing work that so many have done with so little for such enormous good. I set out my understanding briefly. It appears that at least two camps have taken up positions on the battlefield. One argues that no airplanes hit the World Trade Center; the other disagrees and is circumspect about the precise nature of the crash at the Pentagon.…

Gandhian “WTC” Protest Makes Nonviolent Waves in Florida Media

‘World Trade Center’ protester arrested outside University Mall in Tampa

TAMPA – Oliver Stone’s new film ‘World Trade Center’ may well be remembered most for its tribute to the courage and heroism of those who answered the call on September 11th. But it’s also turned into a platform for protest.

“We are using leaflets to alert the public about the discrepancies between real science and physics and the fictional account that the public has been spoon-fed about the events of 9/11,” explained Mia Hamel of 911courage.org.…

Chain of Deceit: From the Pentagon to the 9/11 Commission to the Public

By Russ Wellen

Astonishing as it sounds, a conference featuring the 9/11 Scholars for Truth was aired on C-SPAN.

— In his Washington Post article, “9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon,” Dan Eggen reported, “Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public.…

Scapegoating Norad

When the 9/11 Commission was wrapped up, the Federal Aviatiation Agency (FAA) was blamed for failing to quickly relay information of the hijackings to the military.

Now, years later, the finger is being pointed at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (Norad). As revealed in an article in the Washington Post (free subscription required):

Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.

9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon

Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.

Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources.…

Documentary Director Fears Fictionalization of 9/11

Reuters

July 20, 2006

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The director of a new documentary on September 11 fears that two upcoming Hollywood dramatizations of the World Trade Center attacks may eclipse her project.

“I hope the truth does not get lost amongst the fiction,” Linda Ellman, a former NBC News producer, who made her film directorial debut with “On Native Soil,” told Reuters.

“I don”t have a problem with fictionalized stories or fictionalized efforts about 9/11, because people need to be kept aware and should never forget.…

9/11 Icon Bill Doyle Openly Condemns US Government Complicity and Cover-up

 

Editor’s Note:
Relentless 9/11 activist Bill Doyle, father of Joey Doyle, set up the first email communication network for 9/11 families, which now connects over 7,000 victim relatives. He is also a co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Secure America and a lead plaintiff in the trillion dollar “Saudi suit” filed by 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism. Having to deal and maintain trust with the entire political spectrum of 9/11 kin, Bill has naturally been reluctant to take his own thoughts public, but Friday, July 6th, on the Alex Jones Show Bill finally outed his highly accusatory personal opinions on the 9/11 cover-up, government complicity, and the fact that perhaps half of his family network now feels the same way.…
