Hijacked truth?

By: KEITH PHUCAS, Times Herald Staff


While the 9/11 Commission Report inquiry has its share of critics, Jonathan
Gold’s misgivings about the official findings go far beyond skepticism. In fact,
the 33-year-old Plymouth Meeting resident is convinced the report is covering
up Bush administration complicity in the deadly terrorist attacks.

Gold’s unorthodox view has caused many jaws to drop and heads to shake. When
asked for proof, he calmly rattles off a long list of like-minded people, and
what he called a growing body of “evidence” that the government orchestrated
the attacks as a pretext for the global war on terror.…

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 Salon Four, there was a presentation under way on the attack in Oklahoma City, while in the room next door, the splintered factions of the movement were asked — for sake of unity — to seek a common goal.…

MSM Damage Control Kicks In?

Monday AOL News logged the NY Times report on the Chicago 9/11 conference (below) as their Most Popular News Story throughout the day and over 180,000 people responded to the attached poll. (See AOL version here.) It has now completely vanished from the Most Popular page (and every other story list on the site), despite the fact that only about 70,000 people voted in the week’s Most Popular story poll. And consider the even odder fact that Google “9/11” News Alerts still do not list the NY Times story (and they also declined to run our Zogby poll press release even though PRWeb sent it to them at least three times).…

Unquestioned Answers: Nonconspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin takes aim at the official 9-11 story

By Steve Bhaerman

About 10 years ago, I was asked to perform comedy at a conference I quickly dubbed “the Paranoids Conference.” Each presenter had a dark tale to tell of abductions, drug running, assassinations and other nefarious horrors too terrible to mention. There were whispers of government agents in our midst, so when it was my turn to perform, I said I was with the CIA. I paused while the audience gasped.…

9/11 Thefts Not Prosecuted After FBI Misdeeds

Associated Press

June 16, 2006

Interesting little microcosmic tale of official 9/11 consciousness – private contractor gets caught stealing first responder supplies, but FBI looks the other way ’cause a bunch of government suits were also out there looting. (May explain why the FBI doesn’t want to charge Bin Laden either…) The whistleblowers who told the FBI “lost their jobs, received death threats and were blackballed in the disaster relief industry.” The lead whistleblower later lamented if he knew what would happen he would have kept his mouth shut.

9/11 Conspiracy Theorists Gather at LA Conference

By Jill Serjeant


June 25, 2006

Alex Jones’ hugely successful, energetic, and brilliantly named “9/11 and the Neo-Con Agenda” conference gets covered here by British wire service, Reuters. Reuters feeds every major news outlet in America, but, strange to say, the last time we checked Google News only Aljazeera, Alarab, and Tehran Times seem to have found this overflow event newsworthy. It’s enough to make you believe in conspiracies of silence. But of course that’s only a theory…

Associated Press coverage of the New York 9/11 Truth group’s “9/11 First Responders: Voices From The Pit” speak-out. This is the group’s latest outreach effort to the toxin-stricken first responder community, which badly needs the solidarity given the stunning official neglect it still endures.

C.I.A. Closes Unit Focused on Capture of bin Laden

By Mark Mazzetti
New York Times


WASHINGTON, July 3 — The Central Intelligence Agency has closed a unit that for a decade had the mission of hunting Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, intelligence officials confirmed Monday.

The unit, known as Alec Station, was disbanded late last year and its analysts reassigned within the C.I.A. Counterterrorist Center, the officials said.

The decision is a milestone for the agency, which formed the unit before Osama bin Laden became a household name and bolstered its ranks after the Sept.…

Norway’s ‘Le Monde Diplomatique’ puts 9/11 on Front Page

Was September 11th an Inside Job?

Le Monde Diplomatique, Norway
July 1, 2006
(Rough translation by “Seabhcan”)

9/11TRUTH: More and more people in the USA are convinced that the American authorities are concealing their involvement in the September 11th tragedy. Statements from witnesses, marked confidential for several years, now show that controlled demolition may have taken place. The US government had long anticipated such an incident – as the Republican document from 2000 Rebuilding America’s defenses indicates.…

Norway Strikes Again


by Kristin Solberg 

All the lies from the Bush administration is the main reason for all the conspiracy theories , says NRK-veteran Jahn Otto Johansen.

One of the most debated; why did WTC 7 collapse?

This is not something that just could have happened, there are too many incidents. You can’t even conclude that the administration let it happen, you have to conclude they made it happen , says Michael Berger.…

Fresh 9/11 Truth Aftershocks in Norway’s National Press

IT FEELS A BIT like entering a porn site. Forbidden, exciting, something for socially misfit gloaters. So I enter with the brakes on, ready to back off in shame and with a giggle. What makes me hesitate to enter the homepage of USA’s biggest organization of 9/11 skeptics is the lustful concept of ?conspiracy theory?. For is it not just the high and stoned and very alternative who can bring themselves to believe something else than the official story of September 11?…

‘9/11 Truth’ Movement: Just Weird to Completely Insane


by Paul C. Campos

Scripps News Service

July 18, 2006

Editor’s Note:
Instructive look into the recently 9/11-jostled mind of a bright but clueless liberal facing the wild Internet bazaar of “9/11 truths”. His logical revulsion at holograms, satanists, passenger consolidation, etc. is expected and reasonable, and he does seem to want to sort hypotheses in a somewhat rational way (at least one that coincides with his own timid preconceptions and doesn’t require any tedious research to sustain).

UPDATED–Daniel Ellsberg Expresses Concerns re Gov 9/11 Complicity, Calls for New Inquiry

Daniel Ellsberg is a former American military analyst employed by the RAND Corporation who precipitated a national firestorm in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, the US military’s account of activities during the Vietnam War, to The New York Times. The release awakened the American people to a systematic program of organized deception carried out by the Pentagon against the population to continue the Vietnam War.

Daniel Ellsberg, speaking on air to GCN radio host Jack Blood, stated his concerns that criminal elements of the US government were psychologically capable to have carried out 9/11.…

MADISON, Wis., July 26 ? Sipping on a bottle of water and holding a book about the history and future of Islam, Kevin Barrett ticked off a few examples of what he saw as evidence that the Sept. 11 attacks had been an “inside job.”

As children zoomed by on tricycles and shot basketballs at a community center near his home, Mr.…
