9/11 Commission

The Definitive Treatment of 9/11

By Tod Fletcher
September 11, 2008

Cover image of The New Pearl Harbor RevisitedIn THE NEW PEARL HARBOR REVISITED , David Ray Griffin provides a brilliant and much-needed companion to his path-breaking and movement-building book on 9/11, The New Pearl Harbor (NPH; 2004). Now, on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of those horrific events, Griffin surveys in detail all the main lines of evidence against the official account of 9/11 to have emerged during the last four years. THE NEW PEARL HARBOR REVISITED (NPHR) has been designed as volume 2 of a two-volume set with NPH as volume 1; together they provide a thorough and up-to-date case against the official conspiracy theory (they can be bought separately, of course).…

The NIST WTC 7 Report: Bush Science reaches its peak

by Kevin R. Ryan

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.…

Down the 9-11 Rabbit Hole

Attempting to tease apart the magical thinking surrounding our national tragedy is harder than spotting a white rabbit

By P. Joseph Potocki
The Bohemian

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.…

Was The 9/11 Commission Bribed?

by Jon Gold
8/27/2008

Recently, Mike Berger from 911Truth.org was interviewed by the “Conscience of Kansas” Conservative Paul Ibbetson. During the interview, Mike mentioned the alleged bribery of the 9/11 Commission by Pakistan to omit any incriminating information about them. I figured a lot of people weren’t familiar with this story, so I was inspired to write this “recap.”

Over the years, there have been many allegations of Pakistani involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Apparently, Lt.

Hidden History of 9/11– Now Available in Paperback!

The Hidden History of 9-11 THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF 9-11
Edited by Paul Zarembka

From publisher SevenStories.com:

Information tends to flow centripetally, from the margins to the center, and not vice versa, in the same way as sensations travel from our finger tips to our brain and central nervous system. Paul Zarembka‘s Hidden History of 9-11, doesn’t subscribe to any one conspiracy theory, but it argues, persuasively, that familiarity with the fault lines of the official story opens a reader to a fundamental and necessary awareness.…

Was 9/11 an Inside Job?

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article20521.htm

What does it take to prove it was an inside job?

By Mark H. Gaffney

The following is an excerpt from Mark H. Gaffney’s forthcoming book, THE 911 MYSTERY PLANE AND THE VANISHING OF AMERICA, to be released in September 2008.

15/08/08 “ICH” — Regrettably, there is considerable evidence that elements of the Bush administration were complicit in the 9/11 attack, and may even have helped stage it. Let us now examine some of what I regard as the most compelling evidence.…

Carrying Forward the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative

Aug. 15, 2008
by Les Jamieson

Petitioners for the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative have now gathered in excess
of 27,000 signatures of NY City registered voters who are in favor of the creation
of a new, independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks. Anyone who has participated
in a petition drive will recognize that reaching this number is a monumental
accomplishment. Approaching the general public with the controversial questioning
of 9/11 makes it even more so. However, since a minimum of 30,000 valid signatures
is required plus an extra margin of several thousand is recommended, it appears
that time has run out to meet the Sept.…

Why Should you start a 9/11 Blog or Website? Part 2–Understanding Page Rank

By Arabesque

A 911blogger user named Orangutan writes:

“I didn’t understand the concept of linking an article in multiple places means higher search ranking. That makes sense.”

This is an important concept. How does a Google search actually work? How do they determine what websites get higher rankings in search results? Well it turns out that they invented a mathematical formula to determine website rankings.…

Conference for Planning the Prosecution of High Level American War Criminals


AGENDA FOR THE “JUSTICE ROBERT H. JACKSON CONFERENCE”:

PLANNING FOR THE PROSECUTION OF HIGH LEVEL AMERICAN
WAR CRIMINALS

September 13 – 14, 2008

Andover, Massachusetts

Registration details available at http://war-crimes.info

“The common sense of mankind demands that law shall not stop with the
punishment of petty crimes by little people. It must also reach men who possess
themselves of great power and make deliberate and concerted use of it to set
in motion evils which leave no home in the world untouched.”

* * *

“The Charter of this Tribunal evidences a faith that the law is not only
to govern the conduct of little men, but that even rulers are, as Lord Chief
Justice Coke put it to King James, ‘under God and the law.'”

* * *

“And let me make clear that while this law is first applied against German
aggressors, the law includes, and if it is to serve a useful purpose it must
condemn aggression by any other nations, including those which sit here now
in judgment.”

From Opening Statement of The Chief Prosecutor, Supreme Justice Robert

U.S. Convicts bin Laden’s Driver

By Jane Sutton

Guantánamo BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Reuters) – A military court on Wednesday
convicted Osama bin Laden’s driver of supporting terrorism but acquitted him
on the more serious charge of conspiring with al Qaeda in the first U.S. war
crimes trial since World War Two.

The trial of Yemeni captive Salim Hamdan at the remote U.S. naval base at Guantánamo
Bay in Cuba was the first full test of the controversial tribunal authorized
by the Bush administration to try foreign captives on terrorism charges outside
the regular U.S.…

Marching Off Into Tyranny

By Paul Craig Roberts
August 5, 2008

In last weekend’s edition of CounterPunch,
Alexander Cockburn updates the ongoing persecution of Sami Al-Arian by federal
prosecutors. Al-Arian was a Florida university professor of computer science
who was ensnared by the Bush Regime’s need to produce “terrorists”
in order to keep Americans fearful and, thereby, amenable to the Bush Regime’s
assault on US civil liberties.

The charges against Al-Arian were rejected by a jury, but the Bush Regime could
not accept the obvious defeat.…

A Surge on the Homefront? McCain: “somewhat like we use in the military’

August 01, 2008

ABC News’ David Wright reports: Answering a question at the Urban League about
his approach to combating crime, John McCain suggested that military strategies
currently employed by US troops in Iraq could be applied to high crime neighborhoods
here in the US.

McCain at first praised the crime-fighting efforts of Rudolph Giuliani when
he was mayor of New York City. Then he down-shifted into an approach that sounded
considerably harsher.

McCain called them tactics "somewhat like we use in the military."

"You go into neighborhoods, you clamp down, you provide a secure environment
for the people that live there, and you make sure that the known criminals are
kept under control," he said.…

Request for Information–’18th Soldier’s Testimony’

We are putting out a request for any of you who may know more about the following hearing to please contact us. It’s quite important.

On approximately March 11-12, 2003 a hearing was held for which we’re trying to find video or a transcript. The info is a little sketchy, but here’s what we have that’s pretty solid: It was at one point broadcast on CSpan (no, I can’t find it in their archives now); was chaired/participated in by Senator Max Baucus; Michael Chertoff was present; apparently the Army spokesperson at the hearing represented that 17 soldiers verified Mohammed Atta was never present in the United States prior to 9/11; at one point during the two-day hearing, this frustrated Senator (Baucus?) said, essentially, “I know what the other 17 soldiers have said.…
