9/11 Family Member Patty Casazza: Government Knew Exact Date and Exact Targets (Video Added)

9/11 family member and “Jersey Girl” Patty Casazza has just revealed that whistleblowers told her that — before 9/11 — the government knew the day, the type of attack, and the targets.

Editor’s Note:
‘Jersey Girl’ Patty Casazza spoke this weekend at the 9/11 symposium held in Hartford, CT. 911Truth.org will post video and transcript of her comments as soon as they become available.11/5 update: Video of Patty’s presentation, with Bob McIlvaine, now available at youtube.com or view below:

Why is this important? Because, previously, whistleblowers such as Sibel Edmonds had given more vague information on the government’s foreknowledge. For example, Ms. Edmonds had hinted that the government only knew of a general timeframe for the attacks, and that they had a list of potential targets, on which the World Trade Center was just one of many potential targets.

Casazza further stated that these whistleblowers saw how Sibel Edmonds was being harrassed and gagged, and were fearful that the same thing would happen to them. So they approached the Jersey Girls to ask them to demand the 9/11 Commission subpoena the whistleblowers. The Jersey Girls tried to bring the whistleblowers before the 9/11 Commission, and the Commissioners agreed, but then never let the whistleblowers testify, let alone subpoena them.

Why is this important? Because defenders of the official government story have argued that 9/11 couldn’t have been an inside job or else whistleblowers would have come forward. Ms. Casaza confirms what many have said: there are a lot of 9/11… Continue reading

Ducking WTC Blame

Letter to the Editor of The Chief, 10/26/07:

Ducking WTC Blame

To the Editor:

The City of New York and Contractors of 9/11 have expressed interest in negotiating a total aggregate settlement with sick and dying first-responders who were exposed to toxic air at the World Trade Center. This settlement will offer a certain amount of money and the city and contractors will walk away without answering questions about their negligence and lies. The money will be divided between lawyers (40 percent) and the 9/11 afflicted litigants (60 percent). It has been three years of arduous litigation.

Is this the answer to a troubling case where the Federal Government and the Giuliani administration lied to everyone about the quality of air? What is to stop the lies and failures from happening again? On 9/13/01 Christie  Whitman and the EPA told us the air quality was fine. The White House sanitized the EPA press releases every day before they were given to media. Don’t alarm anyone. Don’t err on the side of caution.

In late September 2001, the city Department of Environmental Protection had tests showing high levels of asbestos at the WTC. Giuliani then told us the air quality was fine. Schools resumed and workers, children and first-responders were unnecessarily exposed to the toxic air of WTC. Rudy Giuliani placed an inexperienced city agency (Department of Design and Construction) in charge of the site. Proper face-fitted respirators weren’t issued to first-responders until November 2001. This was total negligence by… Continue reading

9/11 Expose’ Led by 9/11 Families Drives National Campaign for New Investigation

September 7 2007

Ray Nowosielski, 317-698-4642 ray@bandedartists.com

Since it’s release a year ago, the documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent expose of an under-reported 9/11 cover-up as revealed by leading 9/11 families and author Paul Thompson, has become an underground hit that continues to garner support and positive recognition as time passes and word spreads. The film has received near universally excellent critical reviews while being officially selected and screened at three international film festivals including in Brazil and Mexico. Here in the US several hundred home, library and theatrical screenings rallied tens of thousands to support a new investigation while US satellite networks, FreeSpeech TV and LINKTV , beamed the film to millions of households across the country. Overseas, the film has reached tens of millions via television networks in Spain, Poland, Norway, Sweden and throughout the Middle East via Al-Jazeera. On the net, the complete film has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.

In the run-up to September 11th this year there is continued interest. In Australia and New Zealand on the 11th, Foxtel owned History Channel will broadcast the television premiere of the film in both countries. FreespeechTV will broadcast the documentary 5 times on Tuesday while LinkTV will broadcast the film on both Monday and Tuesday.

In Minneapolis former FBI agent Colleen Rowley has recorded public service announcements for the Air America affiliate to promote a screening of 9/11: Press for Truth in a 700 seat theater.… Continue reading

9/11/07 Global Day of Action & an Open Letter from Donna Marsh O’Connor

 

Editor’s Note:Global Day of ActionAs we approach the sixth anniversary of 9/11, a wide variety of events and actions are being planned by 9/11 truth activists worldwide (click the banner link). 911Truth.org has compiled a list of all of these, to be updated as more information is submitted. We encourage everyone to participate in and promote these plans by posting this banner link (or the one to the right in our Upcoming Events block) to your own sites, and include the URL in email signatures.

With the Zogby results from last year showing 70 million Americans distrust the official story about 9/11, results of a brand new national poll to be released shortly, and the cross-issue coalitions coming to fruition lately, we know the numbers of people looking for this information will be even higher this year. It’s important to remind ourselves, and others, that we are NOT the disempowered “fringe element minority” media would have us believe.

We are millions and millions of patriotic, thinking, aware Americans and citizens of countries worldwide. Standing together on 9/11/07 is an important opportunity to recognize and build on our own strength, commitment, and power. Thanks for helping with that.

Donna Marsh O’Connor, mother of Vanessa Lang Langer who was killed in WTC Tower II, 93rd floor, has written the following Open Letter. Please help distribute this with the listings of events.

 

This September 11 will be the sixth anniversary of the day I had my last chance to talk to my daughter,… Continue reading

Jersey Girls Deliver Petitions, Request Support

September 11th Advocates Regarding Declassification and Release of Documents

The Public’s Right to Know – Declassification and Release of Documents petition ( http://www.petitiononline.com/july10/petition.html ) surpassed 15,000 signatures. As promised, we have hand delivered it to lawmakers in Washington, DC.

UPDATE

Recently, during our meetings with lawmakers, we discussed the declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice, the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI) and the CIA Inspector General’s report, “CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks”, as mentioned in the Petition.

Almost six years have passed since September 11, 2001, yet critical information continues to be withheld from the American public regarding the attacks. Included in this statement is an “Action Alert” and background information explaining the importance of transparency in our government. Since there is currently active legislation (Wyden-Bond Amendment attached to bill #S.4) regarding the CIA Inspector General’s Report, we decided, for the moment, to focus our attention on this particular document. After reviewing the evidence produced by the Joint Inquiry of Congress into the 9/11 Attacks, both Republican and Democratic Congressmen agreed that a CIA Inspector General review into individual responsibility was necessary. Faced with the facts, these Congressmen understood that accountability in the Intelligence Community was crucial. Their intent was that a final declassified CIA/IG report was to be released to… Continue reading

Scholars and Family Members Submit Request for Correction to 9/11 NIST Report

Gaps and inconsistencies reveal fundamental flaws in NIST’s building collapse analyses

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2007 — A group of scientists, researchers and 9/11 family members challenging the official reports of the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11/01 has filed a Request for Correction (RFC) with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The Request asserts that the NIST Final Report violates information quality standards, draws inferences that are inconsistent with its own computer simulations and physical tests, and exhibits a significant bias toward a preordained conclusion while ignoring available evidence contrary to it. The Request also says that if this bias is corrected, the NIST simulation clearly indicates that the Towers should not have collapsed due to plane damage and fire. The obvious alternative, which the group says should have been studied by NIST, is explosive demolition.

The group submitting the Request includes 9/11 family members Bob McIlvaine and Bill Doyle, physicist Steven E. Jones, former UL manager, Kevin Ryan, architect Richard Gage, AIA, and the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice.

A key theme of the Request is a call for NIST to reveal more of the data behind the Report’s statements. Steven Jones, a physicist in Utah, says of the Report, “Among other things, we’ve found that the Report  violates information quality standards by leaving out necessary information which would allow its conclusions to be verified.”

But what’s worse, Jones says, “when you read the Report, you find some data that… Continue reading

An Open Letter from Ellen Mariani

Before there was even a “911 truth movement” to speak of, Ellen Mariani sacrificed the opportunity to collect 9/11 hush money and became a beacon of courage and determination.

 

Widow battling for 9/11 truth desperately needs your support!
An open letter from Ellen Mariani.

Ellen and Louis Neal Mariani

After five years of battling to find the truth of 9/11/2001, the day I lost my husband Louis Neal Mariani on United Airlines Flight 175, I want to give 9-11 activists and 9-11 researchers an idea of what I’ve been through. It includes emotional abuse, harassment, lawyers’ misguidance, and now the prospect of financial ruin. Even more, there’s been a constant pressure to give up the fight to expose the criminals involved in 9/11 and what they did to our loved ones–and to the service men and women presently fighting and dying in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.

It took me three months after 9/11 to gather my composure and face the fact that I would never see my husband again. But on December 20th, I put together and filed a wrongful death law suit against United Airlines. I was not suing the government at that time. That idea originated with attorney Phil Berg.

Unknown to many of us in late September 2001, the presidents of the American Trial Lawyers Association from all over the country had already formed a group to go to Washington DC to meet with our elected government officials… Continue reading

9/11 Widows Keep on Asking the Tough Questions

by Joseph Murtagh

February 12, 2007 — When it comes to 9/11, America right now is divided between two camps, those who trust the official account of the attacks, and those who, well, have questions. It’s occasionally the case that the first camp will publicly denounce the second camp as a bunch of nutcases, and when this happens, it’s usually the rowdier section of Camp Two, the Loose Change , bullhorn-wielding, “death to the New World Order” crowd, that takes the most heat.

What tends to get ignored, however, is the quieter section of Camp Two, and especially a group of widowed mothers from New Jersey and New York who over the last six years have worked harder than just about anyone to protect the country from terrorism. Few people realize that had it not been for the tireless efforts of the “Jersey girls” — Mindy Kleinberg, Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, and Monica Gabrielle — not only would the 9/11 Commission never have happened, but there most likely never would have been any investigation into what was the worst loss of life on American soil since the Civil War. No inquiry into our failed military defenses, or the collapse of the towers, or just why it was that President Bush sat in that Florida classroom for a full seven minutes after the second plane struck. No scientific reports, no effort to discover what went wrong, no hearings of any kind. No attempt to figure out the details… Continue reading

How the Bush administration EPA told public air safe to breathe after 9/11attacks

Jenna Orkin, of WTC Environmental Organization www.wtceo.org, describes the envirotoxic disaster of 9/11, horrendous health effects on residents and rescuers, and lies of the administration that led to the situation.
“Jenna…details how the Bush administration Environmental Protection Agency told the public that the air in Lower Manhattan after the attacks of 9/11 was safe to breathe even while knowing is was not. This raises the question: if the Bush administration was willing to sacrifice the health and the lives of United States citizens, what else would they be willing to do?”

 

 
 

A Challenge To The Media: An Open Letter from the 9/11 Truth Movement

Dear Media,

Within the last few months, you’ve given a lot of attention to the 9/11 Truth Movement. In rare circumstances, we’ve even gotten a “fair shake.”

However, your guests have consisted of Dylan Avery, Corey Rowe, Jason Bermas, James Fetzer, Kevin Barrett, Dave Von Kleist, Charlie Sheen, Alex Jones, Dr. Robert Bowman, Michael Berger, Paul Thompson and Dr. David Ray Griffin.

We don’t know if you’re aware or not (you haven’t reported on it), but the original members of the 9/11 Truth Movement have been busy as of late.

On August 4th, 2006, 9/11 family members Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, Mindy Kleinberg, and Monica Gabrielle released a statement that questioned the “entire veracity” of the 9/11 Commission’s report.

On September 5th, 2006, a documentary endorsed by the families that fought for the creation of the 9/11 Commission was released entitled, “9/11: Press For Truth.”

On September 11th, 2006, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., family members Donna Marsh O’Connor, Michelle Little, and Christina Kminek asked for, “a new investigation into the events of September 11th, and this time, a truly bipartisan, global, with families invested from the beginning, middle, and throughout the end.”

On October 14th, 2006, Monica Gabrielle, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, and Patty Casazza released a petition that calls for, “the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice”… Continue reading

Public’s Right To Know – Declassification and Release of Documents

Statement Regarding al Qaeda Threats
by Patty Casazza, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg, and Lorie Van Auken

Astonishingly, five years post 9/11 the public is made aware about an urgent July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then, National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. This information comes
from Bob Woodward’s newly released book, “State of Denial”.

Despite this Administration’s rhetoric that they had “no warnings” leading up to 9/11, it has become abundantly clear, that key Administration officials were made aware of the vast array of Al Qaeda threats and warnings that existed in years prior, and more importantly, in the weeks leading up to September 11, 2001.
 

Editor’s Note:
Four 9/11 widows, known to the 9/11 truth movement as The Jersey Girls, have posted an online petition demanding release of documents pertaining to the July 10, 2001 meeting between Tenet and Rice, as well as redacted information from the congressional Joint Inquiry and the CIA Inspector General

 

When we add the July 10, 2001 meeting to the plethora of other clear warnings that our government had, a very concise view of the al Qaeda threat emerges. Those other warnings include, but are not limited to:

* Warnings from leaders of other nations and foreign intelligence apparatus’ of terrorist threats

* June 30, 2001 Senior Executive Intelligence Briefing (SEIB) entitled “bin Laden Threats Are Real”

* The threat of President Bush’s assassination at the G-8 Summit by al Qaeda in July of 2001… Continue reading

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.

Right now there is no transcript, just the mp3 audio file here, but here are a few quotes from the interview transcribed by the intrepid 911blogger and Alex’s webmaster:

Jones: Sir you have questions about the official story don’t you?

Doyle: Oh, without question… the 9/11 Commission – that’s all a fallacy… The 9/11 commission is probably the worst representation of the 9/11 families, or for that matter the American public, because it is a sham, it really is. We had tons of questions that we asked them to ask, they wouldn’t do it, and the continuing coverup is just beyond belief.

Doyle: It almost looks like there was a conspiracy about 9/11 if you really look at all the facts, a lot of the families now… Continue reading

Sept. 11 Widows Demand Answers

Sept. 11 Widows Demand Answers

By Annie Reuter/Senior Writer

The Daily Targum

(Rutgers Student Newspaper)

Published: 4/12/06

Nearly five years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, many families continue
to wonder what happened to loved ones who died.

Mindy Kleinberg and Lori van Auken are two such people.

The pair said the attacks of Sept. 11, made them widows.

They spoke to journalism and media studies students Tuesday at the Scholarly
Communication Center of the Alexander Library on the College Avenue campus.

“Those words were very hard to utter. The first time I had to say those
words gave me the shakes,” van Auken said. “Before September 11 we
were typical suburban housewives. September 11, our whole world turned upside
down.”

These two women have not stopped in their pursuit to find the truth about their
husbands, who were killed in the attack, while also wondering how safe America
is.

Kleinberg, van Auken and two other Sept. 11 widows formed the Family Steering
Committee to put pressure on the federal government to force an investigation
of the unsolved murder of those involved in the attacks.

It all started when van Auken received the phone call from her husband after
the planes hit the World Trade Center to tell her he loved her and hopefully
would see her later that day.

“In his voice you could hear panic,” she said. “I couldn’t reach
him. From his message I knew he survived the impact of the plane [crash].”

Several media outlets… Continue reading

A Fallen Hero

Written By Jon Gold

In February 2005 , “Speakers at the national meeting of the American Association for Advancement of Science expressed concern Sunday that some scientists in key federal agencies are being ignored or even pressured to change study conclusions that don’t support policy positions.” Their concerns are well-founded. In June 2005, The New York Times reported that Philip A. Cooney, “removed or adjusted descriptions of climate research that government scientists and their supervisors, including some senior Bush administration officials, had already approved” so as to play down emissions’ links to Global Warming. Mr. Cooney served as chief of staff for the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Now, however, he serves Exxon . In July 2005, the EPA purposefully held back incriminating reports about our fuel economy so an Energy Bill that served not the people, but the corporations, would pass. As quoted by CBS News , the energy bill “sends billions of dollars in tax breaks and subsidies to energy companies, but is expected to do little to reduce U.S. oil consumption or dampen high energy prices.” The EPA’s report stated, “loopholes in American fuel economy regulations have allowed automakers to produce cars and trucks that are significantly less fuel-efficient, on average than they were in the late 1980’s.” No wonder they didn’t want it to be known. We’ve done nothing to become more fuel-efficient, and in fact, have gone backwards. Now, as a result, we’ve passed an energy bill that helps us not at all.

The King’s Red Herring

by Kristen Breitweiser

Huffingtonpost.com
December 19, 2005

Recently, President Bush has admitted to carrying out surveillance on U.S. citizens in the interest of national security. He unabashedly admits to doing it. He offers no apologies. With his bellicose swagger, he once again uses 9/11 as his justification for breaking our constitutional laws. The President’s justification of 9/11 to carry out such surveillance begs a closer examination.

President Bush should be stopped in his tracks with regard to his use of 9/11 scare tactics to circumvent constitutional laws that are meant to protect U.S. citizens. His justification for doing so — the inability to conduct surveillance on the 9/11 hijackers — is a red herring. History will bear out the truth — our intelligence agencies held a treasure trove of intelligence on the 9/11 hijackers, intelligence that was gathered through their initially unencumbered surveillance. President Bush should busy himself by investigating why that information was then stymied and not capitalized upon to stop the 9/11 attacks.

MOUSSAOUI, FISA, and FBI SURVEILLANCE — MISUNDERSTANDING #1:

When it comes to the FBI and Zaccarias Moussaoui, one must understand that the FBI met all evidentiary standards to both apply for and be granted a FISA warrant. The information the FBI had to support their FISA request was two files on Moussaoui that were given to the FBI by the French and British intelligence services. Inexplicably, FBI lawyers and supervisors at FBI HQ “misunderstood” the evidentiary standards needed to apply for and receive a FISA… Continue reading

Able Danger Round-up

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.

September 11 Victim Families who Fought to Create the 9/11 Commission Declare it a Failure on the First Anniversary of the 9/11 Report. – 9/11 families join researchers to ask independent media and foreign press for help

WASHINGTON – July 21 – On Friday, July 22, 2005, one year to the day after the release of the “9/11 Commission Report,” Project Censored founder, Dr. Peter Phillips will lead a National Press Club briefing entitled “The Failure of the 9/11 Commission Report and the Mainstream Media’s Disregard.” The briefing will feature scores of detailed examples of the Commission’s flawed findings, self-censorship, misrepresentations and conflicts of interest that call the accuracy and integrity of their entire investigation into doubt.

Time: 1:00-2:30 PM, Friday, July 22, 2005

Place: Holeman Lounge, National Press Club, Washington, DC

Sponsor: DC Emergency Truth Convergence http://truthemergency.us

Lead presenters are 9/11 family members and Family Steering Committee cofounders, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken. After the FSC members’ 18 months of lobbying finally forced a 9/11 investigation and the Commission’s creation, they submitted hundreds of unanswered questions that Commissioner Jamie Gorelick promised would be their investigation’s “road map”. However, by these courageous widows’ count, the Commission ignored approximately 70% of their concerns, and also suppressed important evidence and whistleblower testimony that challenged the official story on many fronts.

Next, renowned theologian, Dr. David Ray Griffin, will address… Continue reading
