Response to ‘Financial Times’ Article of June 7, 2008

From Elizabeth Woodworth
Professional Librarian/Writer

June 8, 2008

Dear Mr. Barber:

I am a professional medical librarian who delivered “best evidence”
literature to the public health officers of the British Columbia government
for 25 years.

Your article, “The Truth is Out There,” is an “ad hominem”
approach to a critically serious matter, and it unfortunately fails to deal
with the evidence involved.

You will no doubt agree that 9/11 has changed the world. It is a seminal event
which has grossly undermined trust and erected enormous barriers between the
West and the Middle East.…

Activist hungry for ‘truth’ about 9/11–The Arizona Republic

by Richard Ruelas
The Arizona Republic
Jun. 9, 2008

Blair Gadsby, the 45-year-old former owner of an adult-care home and an adjunct
professor of religious studies at a community college, never figured he would
be the type of person to stage a hunger strike outside the Phoenix office of
U.S. Sen. John McCain.

But about a year ago, Gadsby convinced himself that the U.S. government, not
terrorists, demolished the World Trade Center buildings in New York on Sept.…

The Truth is Out There (published in the ‘Financial Times’)

By Peter Barber
June 7 2008
Financial Times

When Cynthia McKinney speaks the words of Martin Luther King Jr, they resound through the church with some of King’s cadence. “A time comes,” declares the former US congresswoman from Georgia, “when silence is betrayal.” The congregation answers with whoops and calls of “That’s right!” King was talking about America’s war in Vietnam. More than 40 years later, before the packed pews of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, McKinney is speaking of the American government’s war on its own people.…

FBI terrorism units badly run, understaffed: agent

Wed May 21, 2008 8:57pm EDT

By Randall Mikkelsen

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – FBI counterterrorism units are dangerously ill-equipped and barely 60 percent of the supervisory positions in the division that tracks al Qaeda were filled as of March, a bureau agent told Congress on Wednesday.

Bassem Youssef told a congressional hearing that the bureau has failed to recruit, retain and promote experienced personnel and experts in Arabic culture and language.

The shortfall has contributed to problems such as the improper use of FBI demands for personal and business records, said Youssef, who helped uncover the abuse.…

All of the theories about 9/11 are conspiracy theories

11.9- The truth movement is often laughed at for criticizing the Bush government’s answer to what happened on 11th September 2001. Now however, the recognized historian, Daniele Ganser gives legitimacy to the skeptics.

by Kristin Aalen

CONSPIRACY: Ganser has caused debate following the presentation of his view in an interview with the Swiss TV-channel, U1. There he repeated his arguments from an article he wrote in the Swiss newspaper, Tages-Anzeiger in Zürich in September 2006.…

(The Late) M.L. King Still Silenced

April 4, 2008
by Jeff Cohen

Soon after Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday became a federal holiday in 1986, I began prodding mainstream media to cover the dramatic story of King’s last year as he campaigned militantly against U.S. foreign and economic policy.

Most of his last speeches were recorded. But year after year, corporate networks have refused to air the tapes.

Engineer society accused of cover-ups

By Cain Burdeau, Associated Press Writer
March 25, 2008

The professional organization for engineers who build the nation’s roads, dams
and bridges has been accused by fellow engineers of covering up catastrophic
design flaws while investigating national disasters.

After the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center and the levee failures caused
by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the federal government paid the American Society
of Civil Engineers to investigate what went wrong.

Critics now accuse the group of covering up engineering mistakes, downplaying
the need to alter building standards, and using the investigations to protect
engineers and government agencies from lawsuits.…
