Although I was not able to be present at the rally either in person or by telephone,
I wanted to express my strong support for the NYC
9/11 Ballot Initiative.
There has never been a better time to get such an initiative on the ballot, because
the 9/11 Truth Movement’s case against the official account of 9/11 is now extremely
strong—much stronger than it was just two years ago.
For example, new evidence has been brought forth to show that the official account
of the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 cannot possibly be true. The NIST
Report has been shown to be completely inadequate, and a former employee of NIST
has spoken out to verify what we already suspected—that NIST has become totally
politicized, so that its scientists are little more than “hired guns.”
Besides the fact that the NIST Report has been discredited, so has The 9/11
Commission Report. Philip Shenon’s book has made public what we in the movement
have long known, that the 9/11 Commission was controlled by a man, Philip Zelikow,
who represented the Bush-Cheney White House. Shenon even shows that Zelikow had
outlined the whole report before the Commission’s staff had begun its work.
Moreover, some central pillars of the official account have been demolished by
the FBI. It has said it has no hard evidence that Osama bin Laden was responsible
for the attacks, that there were no cell phone calls from passengers… Continue reading
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix 9/11 Truth Activist to Start Hunger Strike at McCain’s Office: Memorial Day, 5:00PM, May 26, 2008 at the office of Senator John McCain, 5353 N. 16th St., Phoenix, AZ
Contact: Tim King Office: 480.329.9090, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Phoenix, AZ, May 21, 2008 – In an effort to bring national attention to the 9/11 truth issue, Phoenix activist, Blair Gadsby, a professor of Religious Studies, plans to start a hunger strike on Memorial Day, at the Phoenix office of Senator John McCain. Gadsby is putting the spotlight on McCain because of McCain’s avowed support for the official account of 9/11. McCain is the author of the foreword to the 2006 Popular Mechanics book, Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can’t Stand Up to the Facts.
Gadsby, an Arizonan who is represented by McCain, stated for the record, “I believe Mr. McCain is a man of deep integrity. He has stood up to corporate influence in campaigns and to the very powerful Military Industrial Complex in the past, and he has a record of being a maverick. That’s why I’ve chosen to offer him this opportunity to face the issues head-on publicly. He may be one of the very, very few who have the integrity and stature to keep the military loyal and find the broad-based political support to bring about a change in our great country. But today, he is in a perilous position. By writing the Foreword to the official cover-up story, he has sided with the… Continue reading
When: Wednesday May 28th, 7:30 pm
Where: St. Mark’s Church, 2nd Avenue @ 10th Street
(New York, May 22, 2008) – The New York City 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign,
a non-profit, citizens based organization, whose goal is the creation of an independent
commission to lead a new investigation into the tragedy of 9/11, will be holding
a rally on Wednesday, May 28th at 7:30 PM at St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery.
The campaign hopes to put the issue of a new investigation of 9/11 on the November
2008 NYC ballot as a public referendum. Come and learn about this historic effort!
Visit www.nyc911initiative.org for full campaign details.
Featured speakers include:
Wayne Madsen, investigative reporter, retired NSA analyst
John Feal, 9/11 first responder, Director of the Feal Good Foundation
William Rodriguez, 9/11 hero and last survivor of WTC1
Sander Hicks, 9/11 author/researcher, founder of Voxpop.net
Jesse Richard, founder of TVNewsLies.org
Karen Johnson, state senator from Arizona (by phone)
The event will be moderated by the Reverend Frank Morales.
The rally will be an opportunity for the press and public to learn about the 9/11
Ballot Initiative Campaign and to fill out petitions. Upon reaching 30,000 valid
signatures which are lawfully required to put the Initiative on the ballot, NYC
voters will be enabled to create a fact-driven investigation of 9/11, which will
be distinct from the former Kean-Hamilton Commission because this will go beyond
political agendas by exploring all possible scenarios, following the evidence
wherever it may lead. We have… Continue reading

The Air Force wants a suite of hacker tools, to give it “access” to — and “full control” of — any kind of computer there is. And once the info warriors are in, the Air Force wants them to keep tabs on their “adversaries’ information infrastructure completely undetected.”
The government is growing increasingly interested in waging war online. The Air Force recently put together a ” Cyberspace Command ,” with a charter to rule networks the way its fighter jets rule the skies. The Department of Homeland Security, Darpa, and other agencies are teaming up for a five-year, $30 billion ” national cybersecurity initiative .” That includes an electronic test range , where federally-funded hackers can test out the latest electronic attacks . “You used to need an army to wage a war,” a recent Air Force commercial notes. ” Now, all you need is an Internet connection .”
On Monday, the Air Force Research Laboratory introduced a two-year, $11 million effort to put together hardware and software tools for ” Dominant Cyber Offensive Engagement .” “Of interest are any and all techniques to enable user and/or root level access,” a request for proposals notes, “to both fixed (PC) or mobile computing platforms… any and all operating systems, patch levels, applications and hardware.” This isn’t just some computer science study, mind you; “research efforts under this program are expected to result in complete functional capabilities.”
The Pentagon has dropped charges against a Saudi citizen alleged to have been
the "20th hijacker" in the 11 September 2001 attacks on the US.
Mohammad al-Qahtani was one of six Guantánamo Bay inmates charged with murder
and war crimes in February.
The Pentagon said the case against the other five defendants would proceed.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against the suspects in a case before
military tribunals at the US prison camp in Guantánamo Bay.
A Pentagon official said the charges against Mohammad al-Qahtani had been dropped
"without prejudice", meaning they could be reinstated.
The US military gave no reason for its decision.
But lawyers for the defendant say they believe the charges were dropped because
he "was tortured" under interrogation.
The decision could have implications for the other five suspects, whose lawyers
claim that similar treatment was meted out to them, the BBC’s Adam Brookes reports
Authorities say Mr Qahtani failed to take part in the 9/11 attacks because
he was denied entry into the US by an immigration official.
He was refused entry at Orlando in Florida in August 2001 and returned to Dubai.
He was later detained in Afghanistan and transferred to Guantánamo Bay.
In 2006, he recanted accusations he had made against fellow detainees of having
links to al-Qaeda.
His lawyer told Time magazine the statements had been extracted under torture.
The Saudi was reportedly submitted to stress positions, sleep deprivation and
humiliation at Guantánamo.
Officials said he had been subjected… Continue reading

Continuing the 9/11 conversation.
Mike Malloy dedicated the second hour of his program to an intervew with David Ray Griffin. A wide-ranging talk about 911.
(If you support what Malloy is doing, consider becoming a NovaM Founder if you can afford it.)
We have one of our rare guests on tonight’s program. Philosopher/theologian Dr. David Ray Griffin will join us for a discussion of the events prior to the bombings and terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Those familiar with the 9/11 Truth Movement are well acquainted with Dr. Griffin and his points of view regarding those horrific acts against the people of the United States. As reported at wikipedia.com:
Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, David Ray Griffin moved his focus from questions of philosophy and religion to ones of politics and history, specifically “American expansionism and imperialism”. He intended to write a book on the subject, presenting 9/11 in terms of “blowback” for aggressive United States foreign policies of the 20th century: “Until the spring of 2003, I had not looked at any of the evidence. I was vaguely aware there were people, at least on the Internet, who were offering evidence against the official account of 9/11… I knew the US government had ‘fabricated’ evidence to go to war several times before. Nevertheless… I did not take this possibility seriously… I was so confident that they must be wrong.”
After reading the work of Paul… Continue reading

New York (AP) — Former EPA chief Christine Todd Whitman cannot be held
liable for telling residents near the World Trade Center site that the air was
safe to breathe after the 2001 terrorist attacks, a federal appeals court said
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Whitman apparently made comments
reassuring people about the safety around the site based on conflicting information
and reassurances by the White House.
The appeals court said legal remedies are not always available for every instance
of arguably deficient governmental performance.
A Department of Justice lawyer had argued late last year that holding the former
head of the Environmental Protection Agency liable would set a dangerous precedent
in future disasters because public officials would fear making public statements.
The ruling came in response to a lawsuit by residents, students and workers
in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn who said they were exposed to hazardous dust
and debris from the fallen twin towers after Sept. 11.
They said Whitman, who also is a former New Jersey governor, should be forced
to pay damages to properly clean homes, schools and businesses.
A lower court judge had earlier refused to dismiss Whitman as a defendant,
saying her actions were "conscience-shocking."

11.9- The truth movement is often laughed at for criticizing the Bush government’s answer to what happened on 11th September 2001. Now however, the recognized historian, Daniele Ganser gives legitimacy to the skeptics.
by Kristin Aalen
CONSPIRACY: Ganser has caused debate following the presentation of his view in an interview with the Swiss TV-channel, U1. There he repeated his arguments from an article he wrote in the Swiss newspaper, Tages-Anzeiger in Zürich in September 2006.
Ganser’s premise is that conspiracies are nothing unusual or new in the field of historical research. At least since the assassination of Julius Caesar in classical Rome more than 2000 years ago, conspiracies have been an element of the political fight for influence and power.
He defines a conspiracy as, “a secret agreement between two or more persons to engage in a criminal act.”
He continues: “As 9/11 was a criminal act which was definitively not planned and carried out by one single person alone but by at least two or more persons who agreed on the plan before it was implemented, 9/11 must be classified as a conspiracy.”
MOST CORRECT? “It is important to stress that all theories about 9/11 are conspiracy theories. Once we realize that none of the theories can be dismissed on the grounds that it is a ‘conspiracy theory’, the real question becomes: Which conspiracy theory correctly describes the 9/11 conspiracy?” asks Ganser.
The historian thereby is in disagreement with the many who laugh at the critics… Continue reading

WASHINGTON — A new U.N. Human Rights Council official assigned to monitor
Israel is calling for an official commission to study the role neoconservatives
may have played in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
On March 26, Richard Falk, Milbank professor of international law emeritus
at Princeton University, was named by unanimous vote to a newly created position
to report on human rights in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian
Arabs. While Mr. Falk’s specialty is human rights and international law, since
the attacks in 2001, he has devoted some of his time to challenging what he
calls the "9-11 official version."
On March 24 in an interview with a radio host and former University of Wisconsin
instructor, Kevin Barrett, Mr. Falk said, "It is possibly true that especially
the neoconservatives thought there was a situation in the country and in the
world where something had to happen to wake up the American people. Whether
they are innocent about the contention that they made that something happen
or not, I don’t think we can answer definitively at this point. All we can say
is there is a lot of grounds for suspicion, there should be an official investigation
of the sort the 9/11 commission did not engage in and that the failure to do
these things is cheating the American people and in some sense the people of
the world of a greater confidence in what really happened than they presently

Its headline news that top Democrats are asking Attorney General Mukasey to
explain his comments about a pre-9/11 phone call from a terrorist to the United
Why doesn’t Congress ask Mukasey some real questions. For example:
* Mr. Attorney General, since the U.S.
government knew the date and method of the 9/11 attacks, why weren’t the
* Mr. Mukasey, because the government
heard the 9/11 plans from the hijackers’ own mouths, why wasn’t
anything done to stop them?
* Sir, since U.S.
and allied intelligence services had penetrated the very highest levels
of Al Qaeda prior to 9/11, why wasn’t 9/11 stopped?
and allied intelligence services seem to have actually employed or at least
protected many of the hijackers prior to 9/11. Uh . . . why did they do
April 7, 2008
Even if you (unlike the military leaders, intelligence professionals, scientists,
engineers, and other highly-credible people who question 9/11) do not believe
that elements within the U.S. government intentionally aided and abetted the September
11 attacks, or let them happen on purpose, you have to admit that the government
failed to do its job of protecting the American people.
For example, 9/11 was completely foreseeable. U.S. and allied intelligence
services had penetrated the very highest levels of Al Qaeda prior to 9/11 and
heard the hijackers’ plans from their own mouths.
However, even the 9/11 Commission found that the Bush administration did nothing
to prevent the attacks. For example, 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said:
president says, if I had only known that 19 Islamic men would come into the
United States of America and on the morning of 11 September hijack four American
aircraft, fly two into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon, and
one into an unknown Pennsylvania that crashed in Shanksville, I would have
moved heaven and earth. That’s what he said.
Mr. President, you don’t need to know that. This is an Islamic jihadist movement
that has been organized since the early 1990s, declared war on the United
States twice, in ’96 and ’98. You knew they were in the United States.
You were warned by the CIA. You knew in July they were inside the United States.
You were told again by briefing officers in August… Continue reading

David Ray Griffin provides more food for thought with the release of his 5th
single-author book on the events of September the 11th… 9/11 Contradictions.
Soon, we will be seven years away from an event scorched into our collective
consciousness, (and collective unconscious), but for those of us who have taken
the time to revisit that day in our memories and in various forms of media:
audio, video, the written word… it hasn’t put seven years of distance between
us and 9/11, rather, 9/11 has become a historical event known in intimate detail
by students in a global, open-university setting.
The faculty members in this university are at a certain disadvantage. Rather
than working in a symbiotic manner with an academic establishment that is generally
supportive of the goal of education, the faculty is not allowed access to key
information which is necessary to form the curriculum, the faculty has no budget,
no tenure, and if you have a general grasp of some 9/11 issues, you can hang
a shingle on your door claiming that you are a professor in the university,
and the genuine faculty members are stuck with you until your shaky hypothesis
is thoroughly shredded by a colleague who just can’t take it anymore.
However, some of the faculty members have done quite well in this environment,
and if there is a Professor of 9/11 Studies, David Ray Griffin is it. In 9/11
Contradictions, Griffin writes to the Congress and… Continue reading
