New York, NY (June 8, 2004) — A new umbrella organization called 911Truth.org today announced the launch of a website to serve as a clearinghouse for the highest quality work of the emerging 911 truth movement. The site highlights the efforts of leading investigators, authors, videographers, and activists calling for a truly independent investigation of still unexplained facts.
According to David Kubiak, executive director of the organization, “The discoveries of independent 9/11 researchers, recent whistleblower testimony, and the demands of victim families have now reached the point where a coordinated approach is necessary.…
Philadelphia, 10/28 — Bryan Sacks’ and Nicholas Levis’ breaking story on the amazing disappearing black box recorders from the WTC site was picked up and expanded by the Philly Daily News’ Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Will Bunch. Bunch ran the story, “9/11 ‘Black Box’ Cover-up at Ground Zero?” on his popular Campaign Extra! political blog and promised it will see hard-copy in PDN soon.…
The ABC News website has finally acknowledged the existence of alternative research and popular doubts about what really happened on September 11, how and why. We welcome this breakthrough.
We are very pleased that the article by Dean Schabner, published today on the front page of the ABC News website, seems to have fairly quoted two persons among the many citizens pursuing alternative research and actions for justice and full disclosure around 9/11.
We hope that ABC News will follow up with televised broadcasts on this subject, and give a fair hearing to all points of view.
Even as we thank ABC News, we must unfortunately also note that its article adopts a dismissive tone toward doubts about September 11, in advance of full inquiry.…
Monday, November 8, 2004:
Today our Web site is receiving thousands of new visitors, presumably because The New York Times printed a story that reports, for the first time in “the Paper of Record,” on:
– the complaint and petition to New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, demanding a new criminal investigation of unsolved September 11 crimes (available online at www.Justicefor911.org)
– and the Zogby International poll that found that one-half of New York City residents believe high government officials had foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks and “consciously failed to take action.” (The poll was commissioned last August by 911Truth.org together with Walden Three.)
The piece by Ian Urbina represents the longest hearing given to date given by The New York Times to skeptical theories about what really happened on September 11.…
On Wednesday, November 10th, Anderson Cooper featured Kyle Hence and Jimmy Walter regarding the latter’s TV ad campaign to expose 9/11 truth on WTC 7 and the Pentagon strike. Although Cooper also introduced “official story” apologist Gerald Posner to discredit the ads (with already stale and discredited excuses), the viewers were apparently not impressed and 89% of respondents to the show’s online poll remain convinced there’s been a government cover-up.
COOPER: Tonight we want to look very closely at a conspiracy theory that is exploding on the Internet and on the airwaves.…
Distrust of U.S. Fuels Stories About Source of the Attacks By IAN JOHNSON THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
September 29, 2003
“…The world of conspiracy theories, it is like a zoo. It is like a black hole. It is the place we as a culture toss ideas that don’t fit quite right, that unsettle and disturb and cause us to shudder…
“And it is the place the Powers That Be will toss any sinister and dark questions about their behavior, safe in the knowledge that anyone who goes to look for the answer will have to dive into that gnarled world and will look foolish and silly and will be probably be laughed off the stage…
“Sometimes it’s all you — or I — can do to hint at the existence of these radical notions and illuminate the frightening possibilities and scream into the Void, hoping to agitate and inform and inspire while still covering your professional butt….
Although 9/11’s deserved spotlight has certainly yet to come, we offer below a recent sampling of how the press has handled the story thus far. In the corporate press, you’ll doubtless notice, it’s not pretty and it’s not fearless, but at least some facts are leaking through.

“What we do know calls into question our government’s explanation that a diabolical international terrorist conspiracy exploited our liberal, naive society. What has emerged, instead, is a portrait of an often bumbling terrorist gang allowed to wreak havoc because the top tiers of the administration were so indifferent to the alarms, which former CIA Director George Tenet described so graphically: “The system was blinking red…”
The title says it all — another major media figure tiptoes closer to the truth.

The official story goes something like this:
With no actionable warning from intelligence agencies, four planes were hijacked by terrorists on the morning of September 11, 2001. Two crashed into the Word Trade Center, which then collapsed, and shortly thereafter, the third into the Pentagon.…Continue reading

It has been more than three and a half years since the terror attacks of Sept. 11. The main perpetrators have been ID’d by the government and died in the suicide assault, and key planner Khalid Shaikh Mohammed is also in custody.
Yet both the federal government and New York officials continue to block the public’s right to know more about what really happened that day — even though it’s the family members of the victims of the tragic attack now pleading for a fuller public account.…

Sure, the people with the 9/11 conspiracy theories are a little odd. But not everything they’re saying is entirely crazy.
THE GRAND LAKE Theater in Oakland was filled almost to capacity March 10, just as the Guild Theatre in Menlo Park was the night before and the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco would be the next night, all for a documentary with bad production values and even worse leaps of logic.…
DID BUSH KNOW ABOUT 9/11 IN ADVANCE?
Get the current Special Issue of The Journal of Psychohistory on what Bush knew about 9/11 in advance, with explosive evidence from seven new books showing how the FAA was told to ignore all the appeals from air controllers to intercept the hijacked planes, how audio tapes and photos were destroyed that pointed to collusion by the Bush team, how Rumsfeld has said 9/11 was “a blessing in disguise”, and much more.…Continue reading

David Ray Griffin asks the tough questions about Sept. 11, contending U.S. officials had some knowledge of what was coming and possibly orchestrated the attacks.
Griffin, whose book, “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11,” came out a year ago, drew an enthusiastic standing ovation from the majority of the 400 or so people who packed his lecture Monday night at Bascom Hall.…
– Theologian and Author Believes the President Endorsed the Attacks to Build Up Support for his Military Plans.
by Doug Erickson
Wisconsin State Journal

A noted Christian theologian suggested Monday in Madison that the Bush administration not only had prior knowledge of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but probably helped orchestrate them.
David Ray Griffin, 65, a retired professor at the Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, Calif., said the government’s version of the attacks is so implausible it can’t possibly be true.…

Some Americans and people around the world are wondering more about the 9/11 attacks. Questions are being asked and frightening allegations are being made.
“The 9/11 Truth Movement” is a phrase being used to describe a wide range of people and organizations who are asking these questions and digging up information that appears on the surface to be quite serious if true.
One of the major questions being asked is if anyone in the U.S.…Continue reading
