“I don’t think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile.”
–Condoleezza Rice, May 16, 2002
Late 1980s, throughout the 1990s:
by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed
In the weeks before the 9/11 attacks, warnings poured in from the world’s spy agencies, but U.S. officials did nothing. Instead, our intelligence agencies were reined in, air interceptors grounded, and the attacks exploited to launch a devastating war on Afghanistan. The results: a U.S. corporate takeover of Central Asia’s oil and gas – a wealthier Bush family – and more censorship.
The War On Freedom is an explosive exposé that rips apart the veil of silence surrounding 9/11, and lets readers look at the facts for themselves.…

Everyone has heard, and has probably used the term “conspiracy theorist,” and the fact of the term being in common use, also indicates that we generally agree on what it means. I saw a movie by that name, and the title character was a raving lunatic who kept his food in thermoses with combination locks to reduce his chances of being poisoned by imaginary enemies.
Regardless of how the stupid movie turned out, what’s important here is the common perception people have of someone to whom that label is applied, and just as important, is who it is that applies the label.…
From the Resonant Resurrections Dept: This wise little version of “Cover-ups for Dummies” has been floating on the Net since the late ’90s at least. Given the government /media handling of 9/11, the resulting wars, and recent electoral fraud it often seems our top officials must read it everyday. If we’re to bring the truth alive in 2005, it may help to occasionally remind ourselves how the pros play the disinformation game.
Note: The first rule and last five (or six, depending on situation) rules are generally not directly within the ability of the traditional disinfo artist to apply.…

THE GROUNDBREAKING RESEARCH CURRENTLY FEEDING THE CHERTOFF EXPOSE STORIES
In Part 1 of this series I introduced you to three men from Jersey City who attempted to set up a weapons deal which included among other things, hundreds of Stinger Missiles and components for nuclear weapons. The weapons deal was part of a two and a half year investigation called Operation Diamondback which culminated with the arrests of two of the Jersey City men in June of 2001.…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 11, 2005
September 11th was neither an intelligence failure nor was it a failure of imagination. It was nonfeasance on behalf of a whole host of government agencies, including the FAA.
Of the 105 warnings issued, 52 warnings regarding al Qaeda were given to the FAA by the intelligence community in a six month period from April 2001 to September 2001. According to the 9/11 Commission’s final report, there were eight information circulars put out by the FAA between July 2, and September 10, 2001.…
From the unknown history we’re doomed to repeat, onward…
These are MUST READ Texts:
Yet another exhibit for a class action suit against American history teachers for leaving us ignorant and defenseless against the same murderous hoaxes generation after generation. Unlike the public, the ruling neocons know their history — and how to repeat it to boost their profits and power. Just as 9/11 reprised the Reichstag fire, Pearl Harbor and many other victim-facilitated attacks, Mr. Higgs shows us here the Iraq follow-through was also prefigured and prescripted nearly a century back.

Reporting for Newsnight
The Bush administration made plans for war and for Iraq’s oil before the 9/11 attacks, sparking a policy battle between neo-cons and Big Oil, BBC’s Newsnight has revealed.
Two years ago today – when President George Bush announced US, British and Allied forces would begin to bomb Baghdad – protesters claimed the US had a secret plan for Iraq’s oil once Saddam had been conquered.
In fact there were two conflicting plans, setting off a hidden policy war between neo-conservatives at the Pentagon, on one side, versus a combination of “Big Oil” executives and US State Department “pragmatists”.…
Two-hundred and seventy people were killed in the 1989 bombing of Pan Am
Flight 103 over Lockerbie, most of them American citzens. The US at first suggested
Syria was responsible. A year later, the blame was suddenly switched to Libya. This was just before George H.W. Bush visited Damascus to meet with
the Syrian dictator, Hafez Assad. Iraq had invaded Kuwait, and Bush the Elder
needed Syria for his coalition against Saddam Hussein.
Libya was placed under sanctions for the next decade, until forced to provide
two of its nationals for trial before a Scottish court.…
10/31/05 The US National Security Agency has kept secret a 2001 finding by its own historian that its officers deliberately distorted critical intelligence during the Tonkin Gulf episode that helped precipitate the Vietnam War.
The historian’s conclusion was the first serious accusation that the agency’s intercepts were falsified to support the belief North Vietnamese ships attacked US destroyers on August 4, 1964, two days after a previous clash.
Most historians have concluded in recent years there was no second attack, but they have assumed the agency’s intercepts were unintentionally misread, not purposely altered.…
The truth-telling by New York Times reporter Scott Shane surely must shame present-day journalists, still MIA from investigative reporting on either 9/11 or the war: “… higher-level officials at the NSA were ‘fearful that [declassification] might prompt uncomfortable comparisons with the flawed intelligence used to justify the war in Iraq.’ Perhaps they will at last find their integrity when they realize, “The glaring light of publicity encouraged the Agency’s leaders finally to approve declassification of the documents.”
The question remains, will they find that lost integrity before 58,000 troops and 3 million citizens are dead, and fascist totalitarianism has become fully entrenched in America?…
Here’s how to shut down a ritzy Democratic Party fund-raiser: just ask some simple questions about 9/11.
66% of the electorate in 2004 asked Attorney General Spitzer for an independent investigation into 9/11. Spitzer refused. So, yesterday, I interrupted his speech and asked him why. The really surprising turn of events is that none the upper West Side liberals who came up to talk to me afterwards censured me for the disruption, instead they gave me pointers on how to do it better next time.…

By V.Z. Lawton, OKC Bombing Investigation Committee member
Eleven years after the bombing of the OKC Murrah Building, Lawton asks why we are so often allowed to watch crime-related video tapes on the nightly news and television progams, yet the US Department of Justice continues to fight the release of OKC surveillance tapes, in spite of ongoing FOIA requests. Eleven years? What’s to hide?
Finally, seven years after the King family, represented by attorney William Pepper, won their civil case proving “YES – Others including governmental agencies were parties to this conspiracy,” (see www.thekingcenter.com/tkc/trial.html), the Martin Luther King, Jr.…
