Dear Friends of Project Censored and KPFA,
Mickey Huff and I have been volunteer hosts on the Thursday Morning Mix show
on KPFA (8:00-9:00 AM) since late December. We have covered some very important
topics including: US Economy and the Collapse of the Dollar, Immigrants Rights,
Racism and White Privilege, Media as Entertainment, and the Crisis in Higher
Education in California.
We volunteered because KPFA is in a funding crisis and needs to be fully supported.
We believe that there is no topic that should not be covered on KPFA community
free speech radio, especially the most censored news stories that we feature
on our website (www.projectcensored.org) and in our annual yearbook, Censored
We will be offering special premiums during our Thursday show this week February
17, and the two weeks following February 24 and March 3. On these shows we will
play segments of speeches from the Understanding Deep Politics Conference in
Santa Cruz last May. These unique nine hour DVDs features, Peter Dale Scot,
Michael Parenti, Dahlia Wasfi, Ellen Brown, David Ray Griffin, Annie Machon
and others. The talks openly discuss the underlying issues of covert power in
the US that had led us into war, conflicts, economic decline, 9/11, election
fraud, torture, renditions, and loss of civil liberties. This entire set of
DVDs will be offer for a pledge of $120 to support KPFA.
In addition, we will be featuring a 54 minute DVD of Richard Gage from Architects
and Engineers… Continue reading

A former Princeton international law professor has been condemned by the UN Secretary General and the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations for alluding to “an apparent cover-up” of the events of September 11th, 2001.
On January 11, 2011, UN Special Envoy to Palestine Richard Falk posted on his personal blog an article entitled “Interrogating the Arizona Killings from a Safe Distance.”
Dr. Falk made a tangential point in his blog-post that governments too often abuse their authority by treating “awkward knowledge as a matter of state secrets”.
href="http://www.foreignpolicyjournal.com/2011/01/28/why-the-fuss-the-call-to-arms-against-un-rapporteur-richard-falk-for-alluding-to-gaps-in-the-911-official-story/" target="_blank">To illustrate the point, he referred to gaps and contradictions in the official account of the 9/11 attacks, which have been documented in the scholarly works of Dr. David Ray Griffin, a professor emeritus of philosophy of religion and theology.
“What seems most disturbing about the 9/11 controversy is the widespread aversion by government and media to the evidence that suggests, at the very least, the need for an independent investigation that proceeds with no holds barred,” wrote Falk.
On January 20th, executive director Hillel Neuer of UN Watch, a European NGO, called upon UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to condemn the remarks made by Falk, and to fire him, claiming that Falk had “endorsed the conspiracy theory that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were orchestrated by the U.S. government and not Al Qaeda terrorists.” 
On January 24th, in a reply to Hillel Neuer, Vijay Nambiar, Ban Ki-moon’s… Continue reading

A UN expert on Palestinian human rights who suggested there was a cover-up
over the September 11 attacks should be fired, US Ambassador to the United Nations
Susan Rice said on Tuesday.
US academic Richard Falk wrote in a blog this month that there had been an
“apparent cover-up” by US authorities over the September 11, 2001
attacks, in which hijackers flew airliners into the World Trade Center in New
York and the Pentagon near Washington, killing more than 3,000 people.
“In my view, Mr. Falk’s latest commentary is so noxious that it
should finally be plain to all that he should no longer continue in his position
on behalf of the UN,” Rice said in a statement.
“I would note that US and many other diplomats walked out in protest
in September 2010 when Iranian President Ahmadinejad made similarly slanderous
remarks before the U.N. General Assembly,” she said, adding that Falk’s
comments were “despicable and deeply offensive.”
Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s special rapporteur on human rights
in the Palestinian territories, wrote in his blog that mainstream media had
refused to accept “well-evidenced doubts about the official version of
the events: an al Qaeda operation with no foreknowledge by government officials.”
In a letter to Ban last Thursday, UN Watch, a Geneva-based advocacy group affiliated
with the American Jewish Committee, called on the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
to “strongly condemn Mr. Falk’s offensive remarks — and …
immediately remove him from his post.”

KPFA listener sponsored free speech radio in Berkeley has announced a significant change to it’s popular drive time public affairs program, the Morning Show. The new format will experiment with a team of rotating hosts to include Project Censored’s Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff, editors of Censored 2011: The 25 Top Censored Stories of 2008-09.
The current edition of The Top 25 Censored Stories includes: Number 14. Increased Tensions with Unresolved 9/11 Issues.
This is potentially significant because KPFA is part of the Pacifica Radio Network with high power FM stations in NYC, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Houston and Berkeley and affiliates in more than 160 cities.
–Dr. Peter Phillips is professor of sociology at Sonoma State University and President of the Media Freedom Foundation. He is the long-time director of Project Censored, a unique investigative news project that enlists students and faculty from more than thirty colleges and universities to expose media censorship and under-covered stories. Mickey Huff, is associate professor of history at Diablo Valley College and the new director of Project Censored and a Media Freedom Foundation board member.

Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup
Saturday, December 4 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.1
With the departure of the Bush Administration and the arrival of an “era of
transparency,” opportunities are arising for the disclosure of new information
that may shed more light on the events that took place before and after 9/11/2001.
This film takes viewers on a turbulent journey through several pivotal moments
in history before delving into the most significant catastrophe in recent memory,
9/11. Loaded with powerful, new footage and in-depth interviews with the likes
of Steven Earl Jones, an American physicist who has discovered undetonated explosive
material in multiple samples of dust from the World Trade Center collapses,
this documentary presents a wide array of evidence. The American people continue
to live in the aftermath of 9/11 and deal with its ongoing repercussions. Is
this just another machination of power on the timeline of history? If so, the
real question is what happens next? Or better yet, what can we do to prevent
another 9/11? LOOSE CHANGE 9/11 serves as a fundamental call to action which
is fueled by hope that those affected by 9/11 will soon receive the answers
that they have sought after for nearly a decade.
WHY CPT12 IS AIRING THIS FILM:
Last year, in response to numerous viewer requests, Colorado Public Television
(CPT12) aired two independent films, 911 PRESS FOR TRUTH and 911 BLUEPRINT FOR
TRUTH. It was the United States’ broadcast television debut for each of
these controversial films, both of which question the official reports of what
happened surrounding the attacks on September 11, 2001.…

Memoirs reveal former US president gave order to shoot down any hijacked planes before United Airlines flight 93 crashed.
by James Meikle
29 October 2010
George Bush initially believed the only plane not to reach its intended target during the 11 September attacks had been shot down on his orders, according to leaks from the former president’s memoir of his two terms in office.
Bush reveals that he gave the order for any further suspected hijacked planes to be shot down after the first aircraft were flown into the World Trade Centre in New York during the 2001 terror attacks.
He at first thought the crash of United Airlines flight 93 in Pennsylvania had resulted from this instruction, although it later emerged that passengers had stormed the cockpit as hijackers flew the plane towards the Capitol building in Washington.
The memoir, Decision Points, is due to be published on 9 November, in the aftermath of the US midterm elections, and Bush is already lined up for interviews on the Oprah Winfrey and NBC Today shows.

Fox Business host and Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano revealed yesterday that he doubts the US government’s account of the 9/11 attacks. Referring to the rapid, symmetrical destruction of World Trade Center building 7, Napolitano told radio host Alex Jones:
“It’s hard for me to believe that it came down by itself… I am gratified to see that people across the board are interested. I think twenty years from now, people will look at 9/11 the way we look at the assassination of JFK today. It couldn’t possibly have been done the way the government told us.”
Napolitano recently discussed WTC 7 on his “Freedom Watch” program with fellow FOX host Geraldo Rivera and has also hosted Anthony Shaffer to discuss the Able Danger cover up.
The news of Napolitano’s 9/11 statements was first reported in a derogatory piece by Media Matters and then picked up by the staunchly anti-9/11 truth Huffington Post — perhaps in an attempt to make FOX look worse. As one commenter on the Huffington Post story noted “What’s interesting is that this article centers on a ‘FOX Host’ and not the families, engineers and architects requesting a new investigation.”

"Do you think Kevin Bracken's comments were reasonable?"]
UPDATE 7.51pm: JULIA Gillard has dismissed as “stupid and
wrong” a senior union official’s belief that the 9/11 attacks were a conspiracy
but has refused to discipline him.
Source: HWT Image Library” align=”right” hspace=”5″ vspace=”5″Kevin Bracken, the president of the Victorian Trades Hall and secretary of
the Maritime Union of Australia, sparked anger this morning after claiming the
attacks were not the result of terrorist activity.
“I believe the official story is a conspiracy theory that doesn’t stand
up to scientific scrutiny,” Mr Bracken told ABC talk-back host Jon Faine.
“In my mind the buildings were imploded.”
Faine initially thought the call was a hoax.
“I challenge you to a public debate,” Mr Bracken said to Faine.
“Aviation fuel doesn’t get hot enough to melt steel and no high rise steel
frame building before or after September 11 has ever collapsed due to fire.”
Faine described the claim as a “nutter theory”.
The Federal Opposition seized on the comments in Parliament today, with Victorian
MP Josh Frydenberg asking Ms Gillard what action she would take against Mr Bracken
“to send a message that such remarks are unacceptable”, The Australian
“Obviously I don’t agree with the remarks, obviously they are stupid
and wrong,” Ms Gillard said.
“The Labor Party is a large organisation, people join it as individuals
— we don’t dictate what people think.”
After being accused by Liberal frontbencher Christopher Pyne of not answering
the question on discipline, Ms Gillard said: “If it is the intention of
the Leader of the Opposition to expel every member who says something stupid,
I’ll start sending him a weekly list.”
In Victoria, Shadow Attorney General Robert Clarke said Mr Bracken’s comments
were a direct insult to Australian soldiers serving in Afghanistan.…

TheNation.com Blogs The Notion
As WikiLeaks prepares to release 400,000 Iraq war documents, two former government
security officials argue that WikiLeaks could have prevented 9/11, if the website
had been around in 2001.
The two ought to know: Coleen Rowley, the Minneapolis FBI agent who tried to sound the alarm a month before 9/11, and Bogdan Dzakovic, a special agent for the FAA’s security division, who was a leader of the agency’s “Red Team” that was warning officials about vulnerabilities in airport security just before 9/11.
“Things might have been different if there had been a quick, confidential way to get information out,” the two write — and WikiLeaks could have provided exactly that, according to their op-ed in the LA Times on Friday.
The information they wanted to get out was about Zacarias Moussaoui, the French Moroccan attending flight school in Minnesota who was interested in learning how to fly a commercial jet, but was not interested in learning how to land one. Rowley was one of those trying to sound the alarm about him. And a foreign intelligence service had reported that Moussaoui had connections with a foreign terrorist group.
Less than a month before 9/11, an FBI supervisor sent a warning to officials in Washington. He pleaded that he was “trying to keep someone from taking a plane and crashing into the World Trade Center.”
It doesn’t get much more specific than that. But FBI officials in Washington refused to act, or make any public statement about Moussaoui.…Continue reading

Exclusive by Foxnews.com
A document obtained and witnesses interviewed by Fox News raise new questions over whether there was an effort by the Defense Department to cover up a pre-9/11 military intelligence program known as “Able Danger.”
At least five witnesses questioned by the Defense Department’s Inspector General told Fox News that their statements were distorted by investigators in the final IG’s report — or it left out key information, backing up assertions that lead hijacker Mohammed Atta was identified a year before 9/11.
Atta is believed to have been the ringleader of the Sept. 11 hijackers who piloted American Airlines Flight 11 into the World Trade Center. Claims about how early Atta first tripped the radar of the Department of Defense date back to 2005, but those claims never made it into the Inspector General’s report. The report was completed in 2006 and, until now, has been available only in a version with the names of virtually all of the witnesses blacked out.
Fox News, as part of an ongoing investigation, exclusively obtained a clean copy of the report and spoke to several principal witnesses, including an intelligence and data collector who asked that she not be named.
The witness told Fox News she was interviewed twice by a Defense Department investigator. She said she told the investigator that it was highly likely a department database included the picture of Atta, whom she knew under an alias, Mohammed el-Sayed.
The Defense Intelligence Agency has blocked a book about the tipping point in Afghanistan and a controversial pre-9/11 data mining project called “Able Danger.”
“When it came to the picture, (the investigator) he was fairly hostile,” the witness told Fox News.…Continue reading

Attacked by the Left. Attacked by the Right. Attacked by “edgy” political comedians for scant, confused laughs — with no discernible purpose other than to discourage and further isolate those seeking justice. No matter if their political affiliation is Coke, or whether they lean hard towards Pepsi, everyone in the corporate mainstream media can agree that 9/11 truth is a target worthy of derision.
Yet, strangely, none of them can seem to get their story straight.
When left-wing commentators denounce 9/11 truth activists, the activists are derided as right-wing conspiracy freaks — lumped in with the Tea Party and various hate groups. When it’s the Right’s turn to attack, those seeking answers about 9/11 are uniformly painted as Bush-burnt America haters, the very worst of the left-wing losers.
Sometimes — just to mix it up — a lefty journalist will agree that 9/11 truth is indeed a scourge of the Left, and even concoct a bizarre conspiracy theory to explain it away.
When it comes to political humor in the corporate media, the drill is exactly the same.
Last week, comedian Jon Stewart of The Daily Show announced his upcoming “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington DC. Using 9/11 truth as an example of the “insanity” that plagues this country, Stewart mocked the cause as right-wing kookiness, the equivalent of believing Obama is a secret muslim.
Stewart’s shtick is the exasperated moderate everyman, a lone voice of reason in a sea of insanity — willing… Continue reading

Interview with esteemed scholar and author Peter Dale Scott
September 10, 2010
Peter Dale Scott: “I do know for a certainty that there has been a cover-up of 9/11″ …
Bio ~ Peter Dale Scott a former Canadian diplomat and Professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley, is a poet, writer, and researcher. His most recent books are Drugs, Oil, and War (2005), The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America (2007), The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11 and the Deep Politics of War (2008) and Mosaic Orpheus (poetry, 2009).
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 10, 2010
On the eve of the 9th anniversary of 9/11, support for the war in Afghanistan took a serious blow yesterday. Simultaneous press conferences were held in New York and Los Angeles to present startling new information refuting the official 9/11 narrative, used to justify the war. Also announced were three major professional groups which have joined the worldwide, and ever-growing, “9/11 Truth Movement”.
In a striking show of unity, representatives of “Scientists for 9/11 Truth”, “U.S. Military Officers for 9/11 Truth” and “Actors & Artists for 9/11 Truth” presented their findings and unveiled their eye-opening websites. Each non-profit group has launched a petition calling for a new, transparent investigation.
In NY, representing “Scientists”, Professor Niels Harrit said, “The official account put forth by NIST violates the fundamental laws of physics and chemistry.” Harrit is Prof. Emeritus at the University of Copenhagen and was lead author for a 2009 peer-reviewed study that revealed evidence of high tech explosives throughout the WTC dust.
In LA, physics teacher David Chandler discussed the swift destruction of the WTC towers, including Building 7, the little-known third tower. Having demonstrated its free fall, he confronted the US government agency NIST with his analyses and forced NIST to revise its November 2008 Final Report on WTC 7. NIST’s Draft Report had claimed free fall was impossible but NIST ultimately acknowledged WTC 7 was in absolute free fall for over two seconds. Concluded Chandler, “Free fall is physically impossible without explosives”.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 7
Former US Senator Mike Gravel (D-AK) and Richard Gage, AIA, Founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Discuss Scientific Findings
National Press Club, Washington DC, 2:00 pm, Thursday, September 9, 2010
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — On Thursday September 9, 2010, Gravel and Gage will host a central press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, presenting hard evidence that all three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, in NYC were destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.
Senator Gravel notes, “Critically important evidence has come forward after the original government building reports were completed.”
This press conference will be webcast at AE911Truth.org and hosted concurrently in cities throughout the world.* Following the conference, there will be a mock debate during which public statements made by government investigators and other defenders of the official account will be presented and responded to in multimedia format. “They refuse to debate us in person,” says Gage, “so we will let their public statements represent them.”
Gage will release a media-friendly summary of his organization’s findings, which are based on forensic evidence as well as video and eyewitness testimony that were omitted from official reports. He will show evidence that the WTC Twin Towers were not destroyed by jet plane impacts or fires, but by pre-set explosives and incendiaries. The non-profit organization, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, will also call for a grand jury investigation of government report lead engineers Shyam Sunder and… Continue reading
