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

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
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.

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
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

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

August 2005: An annotated, comprehensive archive of articles on admissions that Mohamed Atta and three of the other alleged 9/11 hijacking ringleaders were under surveillance by military intelligence a year before September 2001. More proof that the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash; and why there is far more to the story than The New York Times has reported…
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.
This dossier by Nicholas Levis rounds up Able Danger news reports to date, as well as analyses by various authors. The views expressed herein are the writers’ own and do not necessarily reflect those of 911Truth.org.
Earlier this week, ANSWER included the following statement in their email alert:
“What is necessary to bring about real change, progressive change, is a mass, grassroots people’s movement that brings together the struggles against war and occupation abroad, with the movements for justice at home.”
They could not be more accurate! 9/11 Truth is the core “movement for justice at home,” and we need 9/11 Truth people on the ground in DC to help share that message with activists attending from across the nation. These diverse folks joining the struggle for an end to war in all its forms need to understand that 9/11 is the key to “unplugging the war machine.”
For those of you going to DC who would like to connect with other 9/11 truth activists, we will be meeting at the Einstein Memorial at 2101 Constitution Ave NW (21st St NW at Constitution Ave) between 9-10:00AM on Saturday morning, 9/24, before the march. We will have outreach handout flyers and a small supply of the placards to pass out. At 10AM the all-day Peace & Justice Festival begins on the Washington Memorial grounds under 18 tents–if you don’t find us at the Einstein Memorial go to the festival tents and look for us at either the 911Truth.Org or Peace Resource Project tables on Saturday until 10PM and Sunday from 10AM-6PM. For more info contact: Gabriel Day (831-325-3135) or Les Jamieson (917-658-0132) (cell phones).

Newsday Shields Long Island Readers From 9/11
By Nicholas Levis
911Truth.org New York Correspondent
Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2005
Our previous story on the Intikab Habib case was premature.
We reported early Saturday morning that New York Newsday published an article about people who reject the US government’s account of the September 11 events.
The story by Newsday Staff Writer Patricia Hurtado had already appeared on the newsday.com website. But we later discovered that the editors kept it out of the newspaper itself. (That applies to the Long Island Saturday and “Early… Continue reading
Thanks to www.911busters.com, we now have new footage of the Tucker Carlson/Prof. Steven E. Jones interview. This new version points out the tactics used by Tucker to discredit Prof. Jones. It also includes the footage that Tucker refused to show. The collapse of WTC7, NASA’s findings regarding the heat signatures left in the foot of the buildings, and a few other surprises.
Happy New Year!
With 2006 right around the corner, the 911Truth.org Steering Committee is planning 2006 projects, and determining the required budget. To make these specific goals happen, and to continue to build participation in the 9/11 Truth Movement, we need funds. 911Truth.org receives no institutional, grant, governmental, or corporate funding. We are supported strictly by donations from you, our readers. A copy of the email we sent recently, complete with a list of 2006 projects, follows.’, ‘
Let’s get busy! 2006 is nearly here, and 911Truth.org is organizing several very important efforts for this new year. In just the past few weeks, even the corporate news has finally begun to show the ugly underbelly of the Bush Administration–more people than ever are finally recognizing the truly devious and deceptive nature of this regime, and the disastrous intentions behind their actions. It is critical that these newly awakened Americans come to understand that 9/11 was the linchpin on which the rest of this outrage turns.
That’s where we can find hope in this otherwise bleak turning of the calendar. Since 2003, 911Truth.org has worked tirelessly to bring you well-vetted, accurate information about the true events of 9/11, historical precedents, ever-widening consequences impacting each of our lives, and to provide opportunities to make your voice heard in demanding truth and justice. Growing readership numbers proves to us that you appreciate this information. Now, more than ever before, we need your participation, and your financial help.

National Security Whistleblowers Coalition
JANUARY 16, 2006
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON — The National Security Whistleblowers Coalition applauds Al Gore for his nonpartisan speech, which very eloquently and sincerely expresses our core American values based on the notions of liberty and justice. This speech can by no means be characterized as ‘Liberal’ or ‘Conservative’, ‘Democrat’ or ‘Republican’, but only as ‘Truly American.’ As stated by Mr. Gore, without whistleblowers the public would never know of the many abuses of constitutional rights by the government. Whistleblowers, Truth Tellers, are responsible for the disclosure that President George W. Bush ordered unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens.
These constitutional lifeguards take their patriotic oaths to heart and soul: rather than complying with classification and secrecy orders designed to protect officials engaging in criminal conduct, whistleblowers choose to risk their livelihoods and the wrath of their agencies to get the truth out.
Today, in his specific recommendations, Mr. Gore advocated that ‘new whistleblower protections should immediately be established for members of the Executive Branch who report evidence of wrongdoing — especially where it involves the abuse of Executive Branch authority in the sensitive areas of national security.’ This statement is also in accord with Bob Barr’s recent agreement in various media forums that national security whistleblower protection is desperately needed.
Sibel Edmonds, Founder & Director of NSWBC, stated: “We applaud the call by Liberty Coalition & Al Gore for congress to enact new legislation that would provide meaningful whistleblower protections, especially… Continue reading
After years of extensive research, the 9/11 Truth Movement has compiled a tremendous amount of evidence that not only exposes the 9/11 Commission Report as a whitewash, but also strongly suggests that elements within the US Government were complicit in the 9/11 attacks. We are not at a time in history where we can afford to be complacent. We cannot sit back, and “let someone else take care of it.” We must act, and we must act now. This is truly a grassroots movement–no foundations, NGOs or government agencies are even allowing, let alone facilitating or funding, this critically important work … it’s about people, ALL the people, working together to break through the barriers and demand truth, and justice.
We know from the polls that millions of people now at least question the official story. Now, it is critically important that we, these millions, become as involved and active as we can immediately. It’s important to remember, no matter what the media tells us, we ARE the majority! If you’re new to this, you will be astounded at the response you may receive–even wearing a button or t-shirt, or putting a bumper sticker on your car can often draw people into conversation with you. Not all of us can lead a group or host a conference, but we can all do something!
For the people who died on 9/11; for the surviving family members; for the troops and civilians who’ve lost their lives in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan;… Continue reading
