CHICAGO, June 4 — In the ballroom foyer of the Embassy Suites Hotel, the two-day International Education and Strategy Conference for 9/11 Truth was off to a rollicking start.
In the foyer, there were stick-pins for sale (“More gin, less Rummy”), and in the lecture halls discussions of the melting point of steel. “It’s all documented,” people said. Or: “The mass media is mass deception.” Or, as strangers from the Internet shook hands: “Great to meet you. Love the work.”
Such was the coming-out for the movement known as “9/11 Truth,” a society of skeptics and scientists who believe the government was complicit in the terrorist attacks. In colleges and chat rooms on the Internet, this band of disbelievers has been trying for years to prove that 9/11 was an inside job.
Whatever one thinks of the claim that the state would plan, then execute, a scheme to murder thousands of its own, there was something to the fact that more than 500 people — from Italy to Northern California… Continue reading
The 9/11 truth movement has gained enormous credibility and momentum in 2006, as evidenced by results of last week’s 911Truth.org-commissioned Zogby poll. Help us build that momentum into a political force that will carry us to success.
9/11 truth offers the greatest opportunity in modern history for courageous, ethical people to positively influence the future of humanity. We hope to achieve no less than a return to Constitutional rule with the re-establishment of our precious civil liberties, the end of fraudulent wars and true justice for all the victims. We should act on this opportunity with gratitude and intelligence, sounding an alarm as well as a declaration that we are free and in charge of our own destiny as awakened and empowered citizens shaping a better world.
This conference offers an intensive weekend of presentations, strategy sessions and abundant opportunities for the growing 9/11 truth movement to gather. We are very pleased to announce commitments from approximately 45 presenters, (see Speakers page for list) and media coverage by INN World Report, KPFA Berkeley, KPFK LA, TVNewsLies.org, Chicago IndyMedia and others, as well as many individuals who have taken up the call to “become the media” and will be recording the events for dissemination afterwards.
Thanks to the generosity of an astounding, talented volunteer (see Cyber-Cypher.com), we have created a separate website at 911RevealingTheTruth.org, with full information on the conference: Full schedule for the weekend, registration and lodging info, speaker bios and presentation descriptions.
We will begin posting multimedia… Continue reading
A Call for Unity in the 9/11 Truth Community
By: John J. Albanese
Stand with me. Today’s editorial is a shameless plea for unity and support. Time is short. Today’s headlines relentlessly warn us of a pending nuclear crisis, and the deafening drumbeats of war, and the inevitable clash of civilizations that threatens to devour us whole. Never mind that the rhetoric swirling around the Iran crisis mimics the rhetoric that swirled around the debacle in Iraq. Never mind that the facts are being skewed once again. American foreign policy appears to be executing a full-court press to conflict and oblivion.
And at the bottom of this rubble-heap of American foreign policy lies the all but forgotten truth and hidden history behind the worst terrorist attacks in American history.
“We will never forget,” we all vowed after 9/11. And we meant it. But sadly, 4 ? years after the fact, 9/11 has already become commercialized, dramatized and fictionalized by such Hollywood confections as Universal Studio’s “United 93″ and Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center.” And while we can debate endlessly the degree of historical accuracy of these films, Hollywood has, for all intents and purposes, turned the tragedy of 9/11 into entertainment for the masses, and has tread upon our sacred vows.
But there are those among us who know that something is seriously wrong. From the start, there are those among us who were not satisfied to simply put their trust in the ‘official story.’ There are those among… Continue reading

Citizens Counter-Coup, The Formula For Change Now
Tuesday April 11th marked 4 years 7 months since the events of 9/11. There
are a few major news items in the last month that underscore the need for building
a mass grassroots movement to expose the truth behind the attacks.
The trial of Zacarias Moussaoui has taken on bizarre dimensions of what has
become more of a propaganda circus while missing the core issue. The government
is basically attempting to make this one person wholly to blame for 9/11. The
prosecution’s inclusion of the flight recorder tapes from Flight 93, which
have questionable validity after being kept secret for so long, is an inexplicable
development. Flight 93 had zero to do with this case. The strategy is to employ
the “drama and trauma factor” to sway the jury into choosing the
death penalty so the government can say they obtained justice for the American
people. Isn’t it interesting that they chose the Flight 93 drama just
before the release of the movie? Why not sensationalize the trial with details
from the Pentagon or the towers? Meanwhile, the real story of FBI obstruction
of attempts by field agents Colleen Rowley and Harry Samit to have Moussaoui
investigated has been completely glossed over. You would think a flurry of mainstream
articles on this point would open a gaping hole in the government story and
result in a special investigation into the FBI. Instead, we’re witnessing
more deafening silence from the Left… Continue reading
As of the close of the poll, March 26, 2006,
CNN.com Showbiz QUICKVOTE poll:
Do you agree with Charlie Sheen that the U.S. government covered up the real events of the 9/11 attacks?
Don’t let the pundits fool you… we ARE the Majority!

9/11 Truth activists have been showing up in Eliot Spitzer’s path lately. On Sunday, March 11th, three activists attended a swanky public reception for Eliot Spitzer and supporters of his candidacy for governor. Sander Hicks, author of The Big Wedding and a candidate for US Senate, Green party of New York, stood up and popped the question “Mr. Spitzer, why have you not opened an independent investigation into the events of September 11, 2001?” Many clueless Dems in the crowd got very agitated, but Sander persisted. Spitzer got off the hook by saying Sander should respect the crowd’s wishes and told him to call his office. He did and as of today calls were never returned.
What’s the real issue here? In November of 2004, an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11 entitled “Citizens’ Complaint & Petition” was submitted to Eliot Spitzer’s office. This document contained great detail about the glaring questions still unanswered and listed damages suffered by so many people. There were 100 signatures from prominent Americans such as Howard Zinn, Daniel Ellsberg, Ralph Nader, John Gray, Ray McGovern, Medea Benjamin, and Ed Asner. The Complaint also had 48 victims’ families as signatories. Spitzer’s top prosecutor, William Casey, personally received the document. However, this has been met with a deafening silence. No action was ever taken.
How could it be that Spitzer, who has won accolades for his successful legal actions against Wall St. financial institutions engaging in fraud,… Continue reading

Attention New Yorkers! Please be advised of the following, and forward to your own lists for the fullest participation possible.
DATE: Wed., March 22nd, 2006
TIME: 12 pm ? 2 pm
LOCATION: 120 Broadway (south of Fulton St. – The building belongs to Silverstein Properties!)
2 pm demonstration at Ground Zero
4 pm demonstration at Wall St. & Broadway to engage the financial district
In November of 2004, an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11 titled Citizens Complaint & Petition was submitted to Eliot Spitzer?s office. His deputy, William Casey, personally received it. In public events Mr. Spitzer was asked for a response to this Complaint, which he acknowledged knowing about. To this day there has been no response.
Now earlier this month, in special Congressional hearings on Able Danger we see more cause for suspicion. Able Danger was a Pentagon terrorist tracking operation. News broke last summer with whistleblowers reporting they knew about Mohamed Atta in early 2000, but experienced suppression of their testimony by the 9/11 Commission. Here is another scenario where Eliot Spitzer?s behavior raises more red flags which should outrage all Americans. He barred his top aide, Deputy Attorney General Dietrich Snell, from testifying at these hearings which occurred after 248 Congresspersons petitioned the Pentagon.
In the 2004 book by five-time Emmy award-winning journalist Peter Lance called Cover Up: What the Government is Still Hiding About the War on Terror, he makes a damning statement about Dietrich Snell. “Under… Continue reading
Action Plan: Citizens Counter-Coup
March 15, 2006
Saturday, March 11th marked 4 years and 6 months since 9/11/01. We at 911truth.org appeal to all concerned citizens to participate in the monthly action known as Citizens Counter-Coup to raise a groundswell demanding truth and justice for 9/11. First, an overview of recent events which highlight the necessity for this campaign.
There is much to report in the last month. It has been revealed by NSA whistleblower Russell Tice that there are NSA spying programs that are even worse than what has been disclosed. This information is so top secret he can’t even tell Congress.
It has been revealed that the FBI’s reason for not releasing tapes of Flight 77 striking the Pentagon is because it will affect the Moussaui case, even though he has already pled guilty. Is there any logic here?
The Bush Administration and a secretive agency which authorizes business transactions with foreign countries wants to allow UAE to run several main U.S. ports. Even Republican leaders in Congress are in disbelief. It’s interesting that a sheik from the United Arab Emirates contributed at least $1 million to the Bush Library Foundation, which established the George Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University in College Station (AP). Could this deal be a quid pro quo? Forget that UAE was a financial base for several of the alleged hijackers, and a transfer point for shipments of smuggled nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Libya by a rogue Pakistani… Continue reading
Event Review by Carol Brouillet
February 23, 2006
Thursday night, February 23, 2006 at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland, hundreds of people converged for an amazing event spearheaded by Janette MacKinlay, a survivor of the September 11th attacks. The event began a bit late, to allow those in line to get into the theater and not miss anything.
The first film was a ten minute clip from a two hour lecture by Steven E. Jones, of B.Y.U. who compellingly shattered the official story of how the twin towers and the World Trade Center Building #7 collapsed.
Janette then welcomed the audience and shared her story,
“I wish I could tell you that you will be able to walk out of here this evening, knowing what really happened on September 11th. I wish there were easy answers, but there aren’t.
“I wish the subject matter wasn’t so disturbing, and then we all would be able to be objective. But the unfortunate reality is that it is complex and time consuming and requires that you examine multiple issues.
“I’ve been coming to grips with these issues since 8:45 am September 11 when Flight 11 hit Tower One directly out the window of my New York art loft located across the street from the World Trade Center. It has been a journey of art and activism.”
She showed photos of the art inspired by her direct experience, including that of a mounted gun with Bin Laden in the sites.
“I wanted to… 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
The dawn of 2006 offers concerned Americans an unprecedented opportunity to finally awaken the nation to the official criminality behind 9/11 and the subsequent cover-ups. Given the ongoing corruption and spying scandals on top of the previous war lies, stolen elections, Katrina debacle, looting of the national treasury, etc., the general public has never been more prepared to face the massive evidence of government complicity.
As anyone working to educate the public about 9/11 knows, there are millions of people out there who are viscerally aware of 9/11 treachery, but still can’t bring themselves to openly speak out or publicly demonstrate in protest. They could, however, be moved to less public but effective action if there were a simple and time-efficient mechanism available.
911truth.org has just launched http://3c.911truth.org, a web-based platform to fulfill this role. This offers overwhelmed or isolated citizens a means to bring the crimes of 9/11 into full public view and deeply deserved consideration.
We are asking people to take 15-30 minutes the week of the 11th of each month to lobby their legislators and targeted media to finally study – and act on – the irrefutable evidence for White House responsibility in the 9/11 attacks. To facilitate this campaign, we have created the “Citizens Counter-Coup: The Formula for Change Now.”
We ask that you forward this to all your activist contacts and anyone else you feel may be ready to face the true power source behind the wholesale military/corporate coup d’etat we now confront.
This… Continue reading

January 7, 2006
The beginning of the new year affords us the opportunity to look back through 2005 and see the successes vs. failures and breakthroughs vs. challenges that have occurred in the 9/11 truth movement.
More importantly, here we are at a fresh beginning where we can look into the future of 2006 and see what must be accomplished.
As a full time activist and researcher, it is obvious, from my perspective, that we as a movement still have serious work to do to inform millions of people. The government, media and so-called progressive organizations have resisted even seriously considering the overwhelming evidence of official lies. We still must find a way to break through the silence–and we cannot fail.
The obvious task is to distill the analysis down to simple, powerful messages. Then we must realize that any one of the points is enough to pierce and shatter the official deception of 9/11. This may be the most difficult thing to realize for a movement filled with intellectuals who have engaged in the process of analyzing the broad spectrum of issues, including the important factor of historical context. However, nothing can match the importance of arriving at a succinct, powerful, and compelling strategy to expose the reality behind 9/11 because each day that passes brings more death and destruction, and worsening of social, economic, environmental and political conditions on the planet. Getting mired in complexity is an unfortunate risk we face. So here is a… Continue reading

Given the indictments handed down this week and continuing investigation on so many fronts, Les asks the question we must each answer for ourselves: “What is it going to take …?”
“We all must be aware that to fail to demand answers to the glaring questions and discrepancies is to accept and endorse the official explanation.”
What will YOU do this week?
After two years of the investigation into Plamegate, the latest political upheaval has hit the proverbial fan. The ruthless nature of the Bush Administration’s dealings with Joe Wilson for revealing one of numerous monumental lies it’s told since the coup d’etat in 2000 can now be clearly seen by all. The retaliation was to expose Wilson’s wife’s status as a CIA agent, which is to commit treason. This comes from an Administration that promised to restore civility to Washington, DC.
However, the larger context must be considered: This Administration fabricated its rationale for invading Iraq. Every reason was a lie. To create the specter of a “mushroom cloud” threatening our very existence, the president’s men ignored the CIA’s discrediting of the forgery, based on a lie that Saddam Hussein was seeking ‘yellow cake’ uranium from Niger. Yet it still wound up in the State of the Union speech as the now infamous ‘sixteen words.’
After Joe Wilson wrote an op-ed revealing that lie, the Administration conducted a hit operation on his wife, Valerie Plame, by revealing her identity as a CIA agent. This crime is… Continue reading
Millions of people are at various levels of discovery that the official explanation of 9/11 is a lie. They are at some point in the process of realizing that some clandestine element at the highest levels of our government and military orchestrated a self-inflicted terrorist act to enflame U.S citizens into supporting an aggressive imperial agenda abroad, and a homeland security/police state regime at home as we relinquish our cherished civil liberties.
After the immediate question of Why? comes up in our minds, the next logical question is ? what can I do about it? Part of the big lie we?re in, to which so many have succumbed, is that we can?t do much of anything. There?s just no hope for us, the corruption is too vast and the powers that be are too powerful. If you fall into this description, has it ever occurred to you that this is what our new world order orchestrators want us to believe? While they are so small in number and have us believing we are powerless and without hope for reclaiming our republic, they?ve won because we?ve allowed them to control this debilitating illusion to which we?ve acquiesced.
Are you ready to dispel this illusion of powerlessness? Think about this. There are just four things you must do. Inform yourself, inform others, participate in the democratic process by informing your elected officials what you want, and participate in the group process of enabling progress through organizational actions. Now let?s add some detail.… Continue reading
- Challenges skeptics to bring their evidence forward
On May 26 Hamilton appeared on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal and found himself under constant call-in attack for different aspects of the 9/11 cover-up [See amazing 12-min RealVideo excerpt here]. He said charges by Griffin and others of government complicity were…pause…”extraordinary” and was careful to say the Commission had found “zero evidence that our government planned that attack.” Although Hamilton clearly dodged most questions, he acknowledged the Report was imperfect and challenged skeptics to “come forward with their evidence and make their case in the public arena.” Please join the C-SPAN letter-writing campaign below to urge Washington Journal to offer that arena to Griffin, Nafeez Ahmed, and other spokespeople for the truth.
First call to action by 911citizenswatch.org:
“A civil letter writing and email campaign begun now could be effective in getting Griffin, Nafeez Ahmed and other critics of the 9/11 Commission on C-SPAN/Washington Journal by July 22, the first anniversary of the 9/11 Commission Report. Please take a moment and follow the inspiration of SF Attorney Rattner below by writing a letter or email of your own.”
Fax number: 202-737-6226
Snail mail: 400 North Capitol St, NW, Suite 650, DC 20001
Please address all correspondence to Brian Lamb, C-SPAN CEO
Attached is a letter which I have written to C-Span’s C.E.O., Brian Lamb, requesting more C-Span coverage of 911 Commission findings.
Please join me in asking C-Span to cover objections to the… Continue reading
Re: Spitzer Complaint, Ryan & 911Truth.org news
Dear Readers of 911Truth.org,
What can you do? News on “Justice for 9/11,” the Omissions Hearings, the Kevin Ryan story, and developments at 911Truth.org:
Justice for 9/11
Last week the “Justice for 9/11″ Coalition filed a restated and amended Citizen’s Complaint and Petition with the Attorney General of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, citing probable cause to convene a grand jury on unsolved crimes surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. (See press release. )
The Citizens’ Complaint and Petition is unprecedented. Unlike a few other states, New York law does not provide a formal procedure for it. We are trying to invent a new legal wheel, and we need your help.
Nine highly regarded complainants from among September 11 family members, first responders and New York citizens have signed on, and many others are carefully considering whether to join them.
We are inviting friendly support statements from other groups, in the style of amicus briefs, and looking for new coalition members. And we ask everyone to please sign the electronic Petition of Solidarity at the “Justice” site, and get your friends on board!
This work is by no means finished, despite the weeks of hard work by a team advised by legal counsel Carolyn Betts. We aren’t pretending that we’ve covered every aspect of possible 9/11 crimes in the present version of the Complaint and Petition. As we’ve told Spitzer’s office, this is a living document, of, for and by citizens, and… Continue reading

October 21 – 28, 2004
Tim Gale became a believer one day last January. He was prowling the Internet when he came across a video of one of the World Trade Center towers collapsing on Sept. 11, 2001. It was likely a video Gale had seen before, but this footage was in slow motion. As Gale watched the tower’s 110 floors begin to crumble, he noticed something unusual.
Right before the tower dropped into a cloud of debris, the windows on the upper levels of the towers blew outwards, one floor at a time, like clockwork. That wasn’t caused by the plane slamming into the tower or the ensuing fire, Gale told himself.
There were bombs in the World Trade Center.
“It blew my head off,” says Gale. “I started searching like crazy.”
What Gale found, in countless websites, books and films, was a vast network of information questioning the official story of what happened on Sept. 11. The 42-year-old Boulder resident was inundated with decades-old memos, foreign newspaper clippings, engineering studies and national-defense policies. And he discovered the collapse of the World Trade Center was just the beginning – he believes he’s witnessing the collapse of the American society.
“I was being confronted with the raw fact that the U.S. government was complicit in the mass murder of its own citizens for geopolitical purposes,” says Gale. “It’s too much to bear in the confines of your mind.”
Gale began spending six to eight hours… Continue reading
THE 9/11 TRUTH SLEUTH HERALD
Minuteman Reports from the Summer of Truth
July 15, 2004 (Bastille Day plus one) Vol. 1, No. 1
by the 911Truth.org Coalition
The autistic media silence notwithstanding, there is now enough exciting stuff happening to, for and courtesy of the 9/11 Truth movement that it’s time to start developing a news service for ourselves. These brief weekly bulletins are intended as a first step in that direction and we invite your help with news tips, backing and distribution spams.
Progress reports in this first outing are short and sweet and cover the following ground:
SUMMER OF TRUTH (STRATEGY & ONGOING CAMPAIGNS)
Reports on the Fahrenheit 9/11 and Peace & Justice 9/11 Eureka Campaigns
9/11 education drives at the Boston Social Forum, the Alliance for Democracy and Veterans for Peace conventions, and Democratic National Convention.
Often when we report that “we” are doing something it means “we” in the very widest sense. Many times the people carrying out these actions including Fahrenheit 9/11 leafleting, sign hoisting, house party organizing and other 9/11 visibility actions are self-starting web site visitors who we have never seen or met. This contagious spread of 9/11 action and awareness across the heartland is obviously the most important aspect of our work and one that “we” hope you will report on as well as provoke on your own.
All these campaigns depend on that widening and any help on this front — whether physical, fiscal or tactical —… Continue reading
