Sep 3, 2005:
Mohamed Atta and three other alleged ringleaders of the 9/11 hijacking team were under surveillance by an elite US military intelligence program in the summer of 2000, a New York Times story of Aug. 9, 2005 revealed.
Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA) broke the story to the Times after officers with knowledge of the Able Danger program contacted him. Two officers have since gone on record to say they once had Mohamed Atta in their sights. They claim a recommendation to round up Atta and what they termed his “Brooklyn Cell” (!) was rejected in the fall of 2000 by commanders at MacDill Air Force Base, supposedly on the advice of Defense Department lawyers. As of Sept. 2, the Pentagon says three additional people with knowledge of Able Danger have corroborated the story.

A 7/7 truth movement is emerging.
Robin Cook and The Database
"Al-Qaida, literally ‘the database’, was originally the computer
file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help
from the CIA…"
On August 6, the UK mass-circulation tabloid Daily Mail published
"9/11 on Trial," a review of the forthcoming 9/11 Revealed:
Challenging The Facts Behind The War On Terror (Ian Henshall and Rowland
Morgan, Robinson Press). At three full newspaper pages, this was the longest and most prominent article ever in
the UK mainstream media to question the official mythology of September 11th.
The Daily Mail did not publish it online, but click
here for an archive of the printed version, including scans of photos.
July 7 brought the carnage of multiple bombings in London. Our hearts go out
to the victims and survivors.
The official story of the 7/7 attacks has unraveled in record time, and the
accumulating oddities will sound all too familiar to students of 9/11:
A security exercise was rehearsing bombings of the same train stations just
as the attacks occurred. First reports were that the explosives were

Announcement from NY 9/11 Truth and the L.E.S./WTC Truth Movement
On Sunday September 11, 2005 we will march from the offices of the New
York Times (near Times Square), passing other major media headquarters on
the way to a rally and concert at the United Nations. We will demand that the
International Criminal Court (ICC) open an immediate investigation into the
unsolved crimes of 9/11.
mark your calendars if you can make it to NYC that weekend. We ask you to send
the announcement below (starting below at “FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE”) to
everyone you can — especially anyone you may know in the New York area, your
media contacts, and any Internet boards or lists you frequent.
If you can’t join a caravan of like-minded people and travel to New York for
the march, please consider holding a linked event in your own town. (Let us know
and we’ll announce it at 911Truth.org and other venues.)
Since last year’s “Summer of Truth,” NY 9/11 Truth and 911Truth.org
have drawn thousands of individual New Yorkers to dozens of speaking events.
This summer, with the mood among City residents more skeptical of the official
story than ever before, we want to get 10,000 people to one single public event
to finally show that we skeptics of the government’s Official 9/11 Conspiracy
Theory are legion. Together, we can do it!
The march may or may not result in an article in the New York Times,
but that is hardly the point.… Continue reading

Attention: Victor Thorn,
I bought a copy of 9-11 On Trial from you guys. Very useful, well presented, even if I found the style of presentation a bit repetitive. Clearly written to try and reach folks who don’t think much – which is a lot of the audience. Here in Australia too.
My primary reason for writing is to deplore the internecine warfare between people and groups who should be on the same side! I have little doubt that some agence provocateur have done an impressive job of setting 9-11 groups at tearing each other apart. This is a tragedy!
I have done a lot homework on 9-11 and its place in a global strategy. Maybe sitting in Australia helps one to be a bit more objective. Right from the start, my wife and I reckoned 9-11 was an inside job. At that point, pure conspiracy theory. But as the days went by, and as I started to dig into online reports (forget the mainstream media), some hard facts started to emerge. Besides, the ever changing official version began to look utterly implausible.
As we near the 4th anniversary, I have no doubt that what happened in the global sense was according to the PNAC plan, and that Mike Ruppert’s case in Crossing the Rubicon is pretty good. I have the opinion that the moment the first solid evidence showed that the official line was bullshit, we were no longer dealing with Conspiracy Theories.… Continue reading
There are now 21 of us, in the US and Canada, who are committed to looking more closely and critically at the events of 9/11 and the official account of those events. We need to triple or quadruple our numbers. I am open to suggestions as to how we can do this. Are there other sites that we can post to? Do you have colleagues at other universities who are open to this project? All ideas are welcome. I would especially welcome contacts at colleges, seminaries, and universities in Texas and at historically black colleges and universities. Please send along any and all suggestions and names of people to contact. Also, if you have concerns, I welcome those as well.
Thanks you for your involvement.

The Re-Open 9/11 European Tour organized and publicized by American philanthropist Jimmy Walter – now approaching its halfway mark – has already scored a significant success in moving world public opinion on this issue. The tour, which kicked off in Amsterdam on May 18 and will end in Rome on June 9, takes two international teams of speakers, plus a documentary film program, to eight European cities in seven countries. Among the participants are Canadian television producer and media critic Barrie Zwicker, French activist Thierry Meyssan, the president of the R?seau Voltaire, and leading Dutch 9/11 researcher Daan DeWit, who maintains the daanspeak.com website.
Joining them from the US are Twin Towers hero William Rodriguez, filmmaker Penny Little, lawyer Philip Berg (who is suing the Bush administration under the RICO statute), Kennedy assassination author Lisa Pease, 9/11 victim Rachel Hughes, and writers Chris Bollyn, Eric Hufschmidt, and Webster Tarpley.
In the kickoff press conference in Amsterdam on May 18, Jimmy Walter forecast that, because of the increasing political crisis of the Bush administration, as well as of the looming bankruptcy of the US government as well as of leading US companies like General Motors and Ford, we must reckon with new terrorist actions, prepared with the connivance of US government circles, before the end of this year. Dismissing the official 9/11 commission report as misleading and worthless, Walter called for the 9/11 investigation to be re-opened, with Europe playing a leading role in the creation of an International Truth Commission on the Events of September 11, 2001.…Continue reading

Last February United for Peace and Justice, the largest representative coalition within the American “anti-war movement”, emerged from their second annual Assembly with a 2005 “action plan” that effectively caged the “anti-war” debate exclusively within the Iraq conflict to achieve partisan ends on behalf of the pro-war Democratic Party and their Neoliberal corporate benefactors. Their “action plan” refused to address any of the core issues of US Foreign and Defense policy, which are the root causes of a pervading culture of war and militarism that has taken over the nation in the years since WWII.
These decisions are part of a larger pattern of “regulated resistance”, a system by which dissent is carefully managed and constrained by self, overt, or covert censorship; denial-based-psychology; fear of personal or professional criticism and reprisal; and pressure from powers above including elected officials and those establishment foundations which flood millions into the not-for-profit activist sector.
This establishment money, and the access it grants, has caused many ostensible resistance leaders to suddenly and dramatically abandon long-held ideological positions and shift their behavior towards doing what can clearly be seen as the bidding of those in power whose views and values are in direct contravention to the established mores of peace and justice movements throughout history.
These “resistance leaders” of the “Left” act as “Gatekeepers”–influential “progressive” figures who use their resources and visibility to regulate the debate, tactics, and rhetoric of the “anti-war” and other “progressive” movements.
The Gatekeepers of the So-Called “Left”
“The press is the hired agent of a moneyed system, set up for no other reason than to tell us lies where their interests are concerned.” — Henry Adams
In his shocking investigative report “The Left Gatekeepers”, journalist Bob Feldman researched purportedly “Left” activist and media organizations that receive substantial funding from large establishment foundations with known ties to the CIA, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and even the much-maligned Carlyle Group, the arms dealing “investment fund” featured in Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, of which GHW Bush, the Saudi royal family, and, at one time, the Bin Laden family, are all equity partners.…Continue reading
A “Call for Art” has been issued by the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance “to encourage artists to think deeply and creatively about the defining event of this century, to shine truth on the biggest lies of our time, which have been used to launch immoral, illegal, unjustifiable wars, and to help light the path towards peace and justice.
“Art, film, truth, music, and courage have birthed the 9-11 Truth Movement. We hope this contest will encourage people to become more engaged in shaping our collective future, recognizing their own power, and helping us to merge the 9-11 Truth Movement with the Peace and Justice Movements, for the benefit of all people and all life.”
They are offering over a thousand dollars in cash awards as well as many other prizes including DVDs, CDs, videos, books, and bundles of ” Deception Dollars .”
Deception Dollars, have helped fund the 9-11 Truth Movement, and have been passed out at rallies and protests throughout the US. Over 6,000,000 are now in print. Deception Dollar artist, Blaine Machan, will be one of the judges.
Entries are due by July 1st and will be announced on the Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance website. Winning entries will be published in Global Outlook, HopeDance and Left Curve Journal, and may also be reproduced on posters, buttons, postcards, flyers by the sponsors and the Peace Resource Project for educational and promotional purposes.
Co-sponsors include many book publishers, radio producers, Project Censored, the Media Education Foundation, 911truth.org, MUJCA-NET (Muslim, Jewish & Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth), and David Ray Griffin, whose explosive new deconstruction of the Kean Commission, ” The 9-11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions ,” has become the most powerful literary tool in the truth movement’s hands.…Continue reading
To whom it may concern:
I writing to tell you that I will not be attending any more of your
protest actions, and although that fact is admittedly insignificant, the
reason behind it certainly isn’t, because the reason is shared by hundreds
of political activists, and millions of political dissenters.
Much in the way that the mainstream media has become marginalized as a
source of information, your organizations have become marginalized in the
arena of political protest, and much for the same reasons.
You’re sticking to old routines in a world that’s changed, and you refuse
to honestly address the real problems we face today. Our government has
promised us a war we won’t live to see the end of, and your organization
seems to be convinced that marching in circles behind humiliating metal
fences is going to change that. What your organization achieves actually
helps the opposition, because it convinces the public that protests are
futile, and dissenters only get beaten and arrested without ever changing
Your willingness to oppose our criminal government is obviously restrained
by your fear, or your money, or both, but whatever the case may be, your
opposition is worse than ineffective, because it wastes the time and
effort of activists and dissenters who work and assemble with the hope of
improving our world. Although you claim to be fighting to stop war, your
organization refuses to address the issues of 9-11, which happens to be
what’s making endless war possible.
Because of 9-11, most Americans will not vehemently oppose any war that
can be even remotely (or racially) attributed to “fighting terrorism.”
Because of 9-11, Americans are being taught to accept a violent and racist
world-view that justifies the slaughter of millions for empirical

Delegates from 911Truth attended the Oklahoma City Bombing Investigation Committee’s (OKBIC) convention commemorating the 10th anniversary of the April 19, 1995 bombing. They found startling similarities between the tragedies of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and the World Trade Center. Both attacks have many common signs of federal government involvement and cover-ups.
The most compelling problem at the Oklahoma City site was that first viewers on the scene, who were not associated with the federal government, found several un-detonated explosives. To their astonishment and grief, Federal agents halted rescue efforts to remove large volumes of evidence. Later, explosive experts discovered that it was impossible for the explosion of the rented van in the front of the building to have caused such severe damage. Further investigation conclusively revealed that explosive charges had been detonated inside the building.
Evidence in the form of structural steel and other materials were removed from both Oklahoma and World Trade Center sites and destroyed, before further investigations could be made. And in both cases, Congress shortly after passed previously written legislation that would not have gained public approval had the citizens of the United States not been given evidence of need, as caused by the attacks.
The OKBIC Convention, held at the Cox Center in Oklahoma City, featured several prominent figures in the bombing investigations. The event was hosted by Charles Key, a former Republican state representative for 12 years, who founded the OKBIC after receiving from constituents a plethora of information that was grossly contradictory to official government reports.…Continue reading

Some Americans and people around the world are wondering more about the 9/11 attacks. Questions are being asked and frightening allegations are being made.
“The 9/11 Truth Movement” is a phrase being used to describe a wide range of people and organizations who are asking these questions and digging up information that appears on the surface to be quite serious if true.
One of the major questions being asked is if anyone in the U.S. Government had foreknowledge that a terrorist attack was being planned using airliners as weapons. And if so, did they deliberately allow the attacks to occur so this new Pearl Harbor-like event would create a desired climate in America.
The idea that officials within our government would allow innocent Americans to be killed to advance other goals and agendas is difficult for many to believe. Surely this is impossible. Yet, 9/11 investigators keep coming up with allegations that make us wonder.
Researchers within The 9/11 Truth Movement put forth interesting allegations and hypothesize about possible motivations for powerful people to want an event like the 9/11 attacks to occur. The investigative reports, facts, theories, allegations and hypotheses are spelled out in several books, films and Web sites.
Below are a few of the many allegations being made about the 9/11 attacks:
- Financial investments of various kinds immediately before the 9/11 indicate that there was quite specific pre-knowledge of the attacks and how they would be carried out.…Continue reading

In February of this year, United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ), a coalition of more than 800 peace and justice groups throughout the United States, held their second annual Assembly to hear and vote on proposals for a 2005 “action plan.” With the war in Iraq fast approaching its second anniversary, and the larger “War on Terror” crossing its third and half year, close to 500 delegates from 275 member groups traveled to St. Louis in the hopes that the “anti-war movement” — which emerged with unprecedented speed and size just prior to the US invasion of Iraq in spring of 2003 — could be resuscitated. Despite impressive beginnings, the movement as a whole has yet to make any significant impact on US policy, or achieve any lasting public resonance. More disturbing is the fact that since Bush’s victory in November, it has gone completely MIA.
One week after the election, the US launched a massive, sustained offensive on the Iraqi city of Fallujah, which absolutely leveled the metropolis of 350,000. Virtually everyone in the “movement” knew this offensive was a forgone conclusion should Bush be reelected (though few understood that the offensive would likely have gone ahead regardless of who won). Yet, despite this foreknowledge, the streets of America remained empty. In San Francisco, the usual hotbed for anti-war activism, barely 500 people showed up to a demonstration organized by the local chapter of International ANSWER, and endorsed by Global Exchange & Code Pink, the two most prominent activist groups in the Bay Area.…Continue reading
It takes a long-term view to see our way out of this gloom.
By Ken Jenkins
It was early 2005. It was a time of malaise, of vague apprehension, of depression, of disbelief, of foreboding and dread. It was the time after Bush&Co stole yet another election and we faced 4 more years of an ongoing, ever-darkening nightmare. It was long enough after the election to have moved beyond the shock and denial, but not far enough to have fully accepted and grokked our predicament, or to have the foggiest idea what the heck to do next.
We wonder, wouldn’t that other Iraq war supporter Kerry have been better than this?
No. In the long run, things might have been worse.
Is there any light in this seemingly perpetual tunnel of gloom?
Yes. But a long-term view is required to see far enough down the abyss to see that glimmer of hope.
Let me explain. We would all like a quick turnaround to this ominous and menacing nightmare. But Kerry would have lulled too many folks back to sleep. And that is not a good thing. The spiral of social-political evolution would have slowed to a creep. As apathy increased, we would have been back in the doldrums, directionless, going nowhere at a crawl. Crisis is not a good time to go back to sleep.…Continue reading

The attacks of 9/11 were so unthinkable that most Americans would refuse to believe the complicity of their own government, even if presented with a mountain of evidence.
Very simply, it is possible to escape blame if you do something that nobody in the world believes you could do.
When I was 11 years old I sat next to my friend and fellow class clown Jeffery, quietly thinking of ways to torture the unsuspecting substitute teacher. Jeffery and I were competing comedians, always trying to “get over” on each other in school. Jeffery was good and there were no limits to what he would do.
On this particular day we sat next to each other, sharing one of the double desks with which Brooklyn school children of the 70′s were so familiar. As our unsuspecting substitute turned his back to write something on the black board, Jeffery raised his arm and launched all his own books across the room in the direction opposite from where I was seated, immediately turning towards me with a look of horror and shock plastered on his face. The teacher, alarmed by the noise of the book launching, spun around only to see Jeffery’s books scattered around the room. His loose leaf binder had opened up and produced an explosion of confetti in the form of notes and homework sheets.
A quick glance our way by the teacher brought into view a shocked Jeffery, who appeared to be the victim, sitting right next to me and staring at me with an expression of, “What the hell did you just do?” splashed on his face.…Continue reading
