Check out this excellent recent documentary, which has just been posted on the Internet, about Nato’s secret armies that were set up across Western Europe after the Second World War. While these “stay-behind” armies were supposedly intended to help put together a resistance if the Soviet Union invaded their countries, they went on to commit terrorist attacks against their own populations, so as to influence domestic politics.
The documentary describes how, from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, Western intelligence agencies collaborated with right-wing extremist groups to commit false flag terrorist attacks, which would often be falsely blamed on left-wing groups. It features interviews with, among others, Daniele Ganser, author of NATO’s Secret Armies: Operation GLADIO and Terrorism in Western Europe.

For more information about Nato’s secret armies and Operation Gladio, you can read some excellent articles written by Daniele Ganser that he has included on his website, http://www.danieleganser.ch/Fachzeitschriften.html
A particularly good article is the one called “Fear as a Weapon: The effects of psychological warfare on domestic and international politics.”

Interview by John Bursill
Listen Here: http://visibility911.com/blog/?p=1749
Visibility 9-11 welcomes for the first time a tireless campaigner for peace,
justice and liberty for the American People, hero and patriot Bob Bowman. In
my opinion and from what Bob has achieved on a shoestring budget over the last
six years, it is fair to say he would have in all likelihood become the current
President of the USA in a different and truthful world. That is a world where
we had a free and honest press in the US and had the truth of the 9/11 attacks
exposed to all. Bob is the man that best represents the phrase speaking truth
to power and was the man that brought that term to the 9/11 Truth Movement through
speeches throughout America and the world!
In this interview Bob talks about issues and ideas never before raised with
him on air. This interview is a must listen!
Dr Robert M. Bowman is a former Director of Advanced Space Programs Development
for the U.S. Air Force in the Ford and Carter administrations, and a former
United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel with 101 combat missions in Vietnam.
He holds a PhD in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Cal Tech. He has
been a long time peace activist (30+ years) and was directly involved in preventing
nuclear war by exposing the crazies in the White House and in the Military Industrial
Complex for the idiocy they represent. Bob has found himself… Continue reading

Hard Evidence Tour Down Under 2009 – Sydney, Australia, November 14-21, 2009.
Much video has been uploaded to YouTube at Blavatsky3′s channel.
Thank you to everyone who recorded and posted these videos (and put on the conferences!)
A short production of news clips detailing George W. Bush’s 9/11 inaction, including his post-attack foot dragging on establishing an independent investigation into the worst attack ever on United States soil.
Bush was clearly negligent in his duty on 9/11, not only as President, but also as our Commander in Chief. His inaction alone is reason enough to re-open the 9/11 investigation. Throw in the fact that Donald Rumsfeld was not at his post directing a defense for this country, and that Dick Cheney tracked the Pentagon attack “vehicle” from over 50 miles out and still did not shoot the object down, and you have negligence and dereliction of duty at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
Don’t just ask for a new investigation. Ask for a real 9/11 investigation.…Continue reading

It is a great pleasure to welcome back our regular guest Kevin Ryan to the Visibility 9-11Podcast. Kevin is arguably the hardest working and most prolific scientific author within the 9/11 Truth Community!
In this show we ask Kevin to look back at the investigative work he and his peers have carried out for the Journal of 9/11 Studies, of which he is a Co-Editor and leading author. There are simply too many topics covered in this interview to mention them all here in the notes. Highlights include Kevin’s work on discovering who had access to the Towers, his recent correspondence with 9/11 Commission Co-Chairman Lee Hamilton and we also ask Kevin, “who did 9/11?”
Kevin Ryan lost his job due to the pursuit of truth and justice for the victims of the 9/11 attacks and has dedicated his life to discovering what happened on that dreadful day and will not be stopped until justice is done.
Any that wish to be educated on all matters 9/11, listen closely to what this man is saying!

On Tuesday, May 11 at 6:00pm CDT on 90.1 FM KKFI Community Radio (Kansas City), ‘Tell Somebody‘ host Tom Klammer will feature former FBI Special Agent and Minneapolis Chief Division Counsel Coleen Rowley and 27- year CIA analyst and Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity cofounder Ray McGovern. The program will stream live at www.kkfi.org.
Rowley’s team had arrested Zacarias Moussaoui just three weeks before 9/11, and was denied a warrant to search his computer by FBI headquarters. Rowley was on the cover of Time magazine’s 2002 Person of the Year issue with two other whistleblowers after she went public with a blistering letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Rowley just wrote a piece on the Huffington Post, headlined “Quarles Public Safety Exception–Constitutional and Proven Effective!” . We’ll hear about that from Coleen Rowley as she returns to Tell Somebody this week.
Tune in to KKFI at 6pm Tuesday.
Last week’s show, Puppy mills, oil spills, & the Prince who crawled from the sewer is now online. In that show I played just a couple of minutes from an October, 2008 interview with Antonia Juhasz. I posted that entire interview online. Yahoo posted an Associated Press story online dated May 8, 2010, headlined “Bubble of Methane Triggered Rig Blast”.
In her book Juhasz writes: Drilling in water… Continue reading
UQÀM staff denounce 9/11 Truthers speech
May 4, 2010
Administrators at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) say they will develop a formal policy for outside groups renting campus space for events after a controversial lecture about 9/11 drew fire by academic staff.
But the French-language university defended its right to have contentious speakers lecture on campus as part of free speech, saying it was appropriate to debate ideas, as long as events don’t incite riots.
David Ray Griffin’s current speaking tour, during which he’s presenting a talk entitled “Is the War in Afghanistan Justified by 9/11?”, has sparked quite a controversy in Canadian press. Following is a compilation of media articles as well as videos of his speech in Chicago and Walkerton, Ontario.
The tour wraps up this week with U.S. engagements in Portland, ME on May 6, West Hartford, CT on May 7 and Cambridge, MA on May 8. (Details at TS911T.org )
The Monday night lecture, hosted by World for 9/11 Truth, drew about 700 people who came to hear from two U.S. academics who deny the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were carried out by terrorists.
The researchers — David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage — believe the U.S. government played a major role in orchestrating the deadly attacks on New York City’s Twin Towers and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
Griffin and Gage are lobbying for an independent inquiry into the attacks, which killed 3,000 people. Their theories — part… Continue reading
Following are three interviews provided by Jon Gold, long-time truth activist in Pennsylvania.
Jon Gold Interviews Cosmos, Founder of truthaction.org , at Ground Zero – 5/1/2010
“… Until there is justice for this mass murder, this gigantic mass murder, then it’s going to be a part of my life and I’m going to be dedicated to doing what I can to get justice. All I’m interested in 9/11 is a legitimate, independent, criminal investigation of the crime, leading up to prosecution of those responsible for this crime. ”
“One of the saving graces of being in this world is knowing that there are a few committed, caring people who are willing to do something despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, despite the fact that it seems like no one gives a shit – who, because they care, because they know it actually is important, they’re willing to do something. To those people, I say thank you.”
“… I’ve been involved actively in this cause since early 2002 so that’s a little more than eight years now. Over the last two or three years I really reached a point where it’s burnout, it’s too much, it’s too much trauma all the time. When you’re really working against … seemingly insurmountable odds. At the same time you’re being attacked by people who are supposedly ‘on your side’, on the same team. All the crap that goes with this, it’s a burnout. So I was smart enough to just really try to take… Continue reading
–indeed, to a much darker future than most citizens can even imagine. Our wide-ranging roster of presenters, including David Ray Griffin, Cynthia McKinney, Jim Marrs and Ellen Brown, will delve into the roots of our current crises and the dynamics driving despotic governance, financial plunder, imperialism, loss of civil liberties, and assaults on public health. Further, they will explore how such vital insights are continually being suppressed as they expose the media matrix that obscures these facts and stupefies our culture, all in the interest of protecting a malignant status quo.
Contribute to the Urgent Search for Solutions
Understanding Deep Politics will also provide a unique educational and organizing opportunity. We hope to harness the talents and expertise of all the participants with the goal of creating new strategies that have a credible chance of success. The weekend will culminate with two solutions-focused multi-speaker panels that will explore how we can awaken, unite and empower the larger community to overcome the deep forces controlling our society and to reshape our destiny.
Other Special Features
This unprecedented and provocative conference will span three days, including an early Friday evening meet & greet get-together. A large discussion and resource room will be available throughout the weekend where attendees can brainstorm, meet the speakers and collaborate with our peers. In addition, the venue of the vibrant city of Santa Cruz will provide many opportunities to enjoy the central coast of California, with its abundant natural beauty and close proximity to the San Francisco… Continue reading
Interview and notes by John Bursill
April 26, 2010
Visibility 9-11 is excited to welcome for the first time long-term activist/organiser, film maker, writer, engineer and psychologist Ken Jenkins. Ken’s qualities of patience, fairness, optimism and clear logical thinking are well displayed in this interview! I consider Ken a cornerstone of this movement pursuing 9/11 Truth, to which he has devoted nearly nine years of his life. Ken’s work is primarily as a film maker. He has produced and directed documentaries for the likes of Richard Gage, David Ray Griffin and Dr Steven Jones, just to name a few. Ken’s skills have been invaluable to the 9-11 movement and given us all valuable tools to help us all take many scientific and academic presentations to the the general public. Ken is a professional videographer and consistently provides these films at a high level of production value and offers them at a tenth of the cost to us to use in our activsm. It is true to say that without the efforts of Ken Jenkins and his right-hand man, hummux, our movement would be less successful! Visibility 9-11 sincerely thanks Ken and hummux for this very important and tedious work.
Ken is also a very popular speaker and generally talks about the psychological barriers to 9/11 Truth. He recently published an excellent article, “The Truth is Not Enough: How to Overcome Emotional Barriers to 9/11 Truth”, which was requested by the magazine editors of Global Outlook for the… Continue reading

There they are, the people who brought you every bit of the action in the WikiLeaks video and all of the other horrors flowing from invasion of Iraq. Madeleine Albright (far right, above), former Clinton Secretary of State, is a good place to start. From 60 Minutes:
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: “We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?”
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it. –60 Minutes (5/12/96)
An exhaustive study found that 227,000 children under five (table 13) died during the George H.W. Bush – Bill Clinton regime of total sanctions against Iraq from 1990 through 2000.
Albright is distinguished as the most direct spokesmodel for senseless death and suffering that’s characterized our engagement with that battered country.
But others carry much greater responsibility. The Bush administration had top secret plans to invade Iraq as early as February 2001. First hand witnesses in the prewar White House were unable to name a point when the decision to invade was made. It was a fait accompli.
Prior to the war authorization from Congress, the various intelligence agencies submitted a report that claimed Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Many nations had WMD. The report had to find that Iraq was an imminent danger to the… Continue reading

343 brave New York City Firefighters died on 9/11. This episode of Visibility 9/11 is dedicated to them!
If you have not heard the name Erik Lawyer it is one to remember. Erik is a full time firefighter and is a new, shining light in the 9/11 Truth Movement. He has been impressing all he meets with his simple message demanding a thorough criminal forensic investigation of the 9/11 World Trade Center catastrophe. He and his fire-fighting comrades want the authorities to do their job and carry out an investigation in accordance with fire scene investigation protocols, to which he and all US firefighters adhere religiously.
On 9/11 so many things happened for the first time and the one that is of greatest concern to Erik and his group, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth , is the near complete destruction of evidence at this fire crime scene and the subsequent monumental cover up and obfuscation of the little remaining evidence. Independently gathered evidence clearly demonstrates that incendiaries and explosives were used to facilitate the three WTC buildings destruction. For more information, see the Visibility 9-11 Special Report, Thermite Fingerprint- The Loaded Gun of 9-11 .
In this latest interview, John and Erik talk about the future plans for Firefighters for 9/11 Truth and their achievements so far as well as the strong bond being formed… Continue reading

A Visibility 9-11 Podcast
Interview by John Bursill
March 20, 2010
In this motivating interview I talk to organiser, activist and philanthropist Betsy Metz. We ask Betsy about the highly successful conference she organised and facilitated this month. The March 2010 “Treason in America: 9/11, the Wars & Our Broken Constitution” Conference was a milestone in the history of the 9/11 Truth Movement. For the first time in America, Peace Activists, Government Whistleblowers, Journalists and 9/11 Truth Activists explored recent American history together with open minds and hearts, searching for the shocking truth. See: www.treasoninamericaconference.com
So who is Betsy Metz?
Betsy Metz is the quintessential all-American gal! She is a well-educated and fiercely patriotic mother of four and a devoted and loving wife of her husband for 26 happy years. Her husband is also the all-American, being a college quarterback and a former Marine Corps Officer. Together as a family they want for nothing and by any standard have had an excellent and prosperous life. This life would be impossible in nearly any other country in the world and it is fair to say they are living the “American Dream”!
So why does Betsy Metz matter to me and to you in this age of the awakening?
Well, Betsy is a little different from the average American successful middleclass mum; “she cares” and “she acts” in the interest of her country, her family and the world. Betsy honours Truth, Justice and what she thought was the American way. The way… Continue reading
