A special on 9/11 has just been shown on the National Geographic Channel, produced by Robert Erickson. Robert also conducted interviews with me and others. In March 2009, Prof. David Ray Griffin and I and Gregg Roberts exchanged emails with Robert Erickson which demonstrate our efforts to get Mr. Erickson and his team to be accurate and fair in their treatment of our scientific work regarding 9/11 — particularly the evidence for the use of explosives in the World Trade Center destruction. For the record, then, I have pulled together our exchanges of emails.
Robert Erickson, emailed David Ray Griffin on 3/27/09:
“if Jones is surprised that we just placed bags of thermite around the column…what else would Jones have suggested? ”
I was informed of the question above and I responded on 3/28/09 as follows:
Bags of commercial thermite set against a steel column — what a pathetic “experiment.” Not anywhere close to representing my views, as you must know, from our discussion about the red/gray chips and the crucial distinction between ordinary thermite and super-thermite! What a terrible and unfair straw-man joke you are evidently trying to pull.
Why can’t you get a sample of super-thermite? I think you can, if you will actually try. Or are you like NIST which refuses to look?

The principal application is in the entertainment industry, which uses fireworks displays for a variety of venues, such as sporting… Continue reading
Dear friends who’ve just viewed the National Geographic Conspiracy Theory on 9/11,
Thank you for taking time to come here and find our contact information in order to share your thoughts. We ask that if you are interested enough in this issue to write us hate mail because you actually believe the nonsense National Geographic states we “all believe” that you take a few minutes to click on a couple of the links to your left, in the “New to 9/11″ section. What you will find is that essentially nothing that producer presented as the “beliefs” of “Truthers” actually reflects the real questions being asked by 9/11 truth advocates, as represented at this website.
This silly attempt to boil down the “Truthers” (what, people who are not actively pursuing answers to 9/11 questions are not in favor of truth? ridiculous…) to a few people who believe there was no plane at the Pentagon and the buildings were brought down by “thermite” is just that — silly. Since you’ve come this far, why not have a look at a few of the 40 Questions or the Family Report Card and ask yourself why, after nearly eight long years, family members and other Americans are still wanting for answers to these core questions … and ask yourselves why you’re still not allowed to have those answers. And have a look at the articles on the front page at 911research.com or Journal of 9/11 Studies, and learn what the scientists are… Continue reading

The corporate media in the United States are ignoring valid news stories, based on university quality research. It appears that certain topics are simply forbidden inside the mainstream corporate media today. To openly cover these news stories would stir up questions regarding “inconvenient truths” that many in the US power structure want to avoid.
For example, current research indicates that public schools in the United States are more segregated today than they have been in more than four decades. According to a new Civil Rights report, published at the University of California, Los Angeles, schools in the US are 44 percent non-white, and minorities are rapidly emerging as the majority of public school students in the US. Latinos and blacks, the two largest minority groups, attend schools more segregated today than during the civil rights movement forty years ago. Millions of non-white students are locked into “dropout factory” high schools, where huge percentages do not graduate. The most severe segregation in public schools occurs in the Western states, including California–not in the South, as many people believe. Most non-white schools are segregated by poverty as well as race. Schools in low-income communities remain highly unequal in terms of funding, qualified teachers, and curriculum.
Other taboo stories include civilian death rates in Iraq and questions on 9/11. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and a professional survey company in Great Britain, Opinion Research Business (ORB) report that the United States is directly responsible for over one million Iraqi… Continue reading

Some 9/11 families are pushing for a November referendum to create a city commission
with subpoena powers to study the attacks, The Post has learned.
Officials are taking the effort seriously, since the group, the New York City
Coalition for Accountability Now, submitted 52,000 signatures and is paying
the $75,000 cost of counting and verifying them. …

The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the agency’s director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and House intelligence committees, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said Saturday.
The report that Mr. Cheney was behind the decision to conceal the still-unidentified program from Congress deepened the mystery surrounding it, suggesting that the Bush administration had put a high priority on the program and its secrecy.
Mr. Panetta, who ended the program when he first learned of its existence from subordinates on June 23, briefed the two intelligence committees about it in separate closed sessions the next day.
Efforts to reach Mr. Cheney through relatives and associates were unsuccessful.
The question of how completely the C.I.A. informed Congress about sensitive programs has been hotly disputed by Democrats and Republicans since May, when Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the agency of failing to reveal in 2002 that it was waterboarding a terrorism suspect, a claim Mr. Panetta rejected.
… The disclosure about Mr. Cheney’s role in the unidentified C.I.A. program comes a day after an inspector general’s report underscored the central role of the former vice president’s office in restricting to a small circle of officials knowledge of the National Security Agency’s program of eavesdropping without warrants, a degree of secrecy that the report concluded had hurt the effectiveness of the counterterrorism surveillance… Continue reading

9/11 skeptics keep strengthening their case. Most recently, in a
scientific paper that analyzes material from dust collected in lower
Manhattan immediately after the event. This paper establishes beyond
any doubt that nano-thermite (an exotic, military compound), in very
large quantities, was present in the World Trade Center buildings
during their collapse. Now it’s up to those who defend the
establishment narrative to demonstrate how the nano-thermite could
have gotten there.
The simplest explanation, of course, is that it was used to bring the
This podcast reviews the paper with its lead author, Dr. Niels Harrit. Niels
is a professor of chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, where he’s been
teaching for about forty years. Even if you don’t agree with 9/11 skeptics,
listening to Niels you’ll most likely find him honest and believable.
It takes a theory to beat a theory. Up to now, that’s played to the strengths
of the establishment narrative for 9/11. But with the discovery and analysis
of nano-thermite residue from dust collected in lower Manhattan immediately
after 9/11, the counterfactual burden falls the other way. To get the story
from the source I turned to Dr. Niels Harrit, lead author of a recent paper
(.pdf) that examines the dust in exhaustive detail. A professor of chemistry
at the University of Copenhagen for over forty years, with an impressive publication
record (.pdf), Niels brings a high level of professional credibility to the
9/11 truth movement.…

U.S. relations with the Saudi royal family trumped the importance of the 3,000
murders on Sept. 11, 2001. That was the opinion of the U.S. State Department
during the Bush years.
The Bush administration made the path as rocky as possible for the families
who sued the Saudis. The families’ lawsuit showed how the Saudis financed the
lunatics who pulled off a mass murder on American soil in September 2001.
Barack Obama has followed that same Bush agenda.
But it took an intellectually lightweight U.S. Supreme Court to really send
the important message to the Saudi royal family. That message: "We love
your oil and need your money."
So even with the Supreme Court, it was all about our love affair with the Saudis
when the court ruled that the families of 9/11 victims were not permitted to
sue the royal family.
Even the highest court in the land could not get past the fact that the Saudis
control about 25 percent of the world’s oil reserves; the legend that the court
is supposed to be blind to politics is once more exposed as a fraud. The justices
knew that America owes the Saudi royal family billions, and that by some estimates
that family controls 8 to 10 percent of our entire economy.
In front of the Supreme Court, the Obama lawyers argued the same thing that
the Bush lawyers argued. In a distilled form, the argument was simple: America
will make the Saudis… Continue reading

Just another day for Glenn Beck:
From the June 30th, 2009 Glenn Beck on Fox News:
Scheuer: “The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States. Only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, with as much violence as necessary.”
“Last night Glenn Beck’s guest was ex-CIA person Michael Scheuer, who stated that the only hope for the country was for Osama Bin Laden to ‘deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.’ Seriously.”

‘If I didn’t confess to 7/7 bombings MI5 officers would rape my wife,’
claims torture victim
By Matthew Hickley
Last updated at 10:25 PM on 25th June 2009
A British man spoke publicly for the first time yesterday to accuse MI5 officers
of forcing him to confess to masterminding the July 7 bombings.
Jamil Rahman claims UK security officers were behind his arrest in 2005 in
He says he was beaten repeatedly by local officials who also threatened to
rape him and his wife.
Mr Rahman, who is suing the Home Office, said a pair of MI5 officers who attended
his torture and interrogation would leave the room while he was beaten.
He claims when he told the pair he had been tortured they merely answered:
‘They haven’t done a very good job on you.’
Mr Rahman told the BBC: ‘They were questioning me on the July 7 bombings, showing
me pictures of the bombers.
‘They showed me maps, terrains … they asked me to draw things out and write
names next to pictures.
‘They threatened my family. They go to me, “In the UK, gas leaks happen,
if your family house had a gas leak and everyone got burnt, there’s no problems,
we can do that easily”.’
He says he eventually made a false confession of involvement in the July 7

MI5, made threats to rape his wife if he did not confess to… Continue reading

Powerful prosecutor and public figure Patrick Fitzgerald has been waging
a chilling private jihad aimed at "killing" a book critical of him.
Okay, so he’s one of the "sexiest
men alive" — but what does Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. Attorney in
Chicago and Special Counsel in the CIA leak case, have against us poor, unsexy
journalists? It’s bad enough that Fitzie won’t answer my questions: ("Rory.
I just wanted to get back to you and let you know that I am going to decline
to be interviewed. Thank you. Pat") It’s worse that he was responsible
for the jailing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller, who spent
85 days behind bars. Now comes word that Fitzgerald, who must have too much
time on his hands now that Scooter Libby has been freed and Rod Blagojevich
indicted, spent much of the last year and a half going after another journalist,
Peter Lance, in an attempt to kill a new edition of Lance’s investigative book
Triple Cross by threatening to sue both the author and his publisher
published in November 2006 by Regan Books, a division of Harper_Collins,
Triple Cross uncovers the story of how Al Qaeda master spy Ali Mohamed
infiltrated U.S. intelligence in the years leading up to 9/11 – "and how
the FBI’s elite bin Laden squad failed to stop him." Among the radicals
trained by Ali Mohamed –and photographed by the FBI in 1989… Continue reading

I believe that anyone who promotes further murders like Dr. Tiller or the guard at the holocaust museum are guilty of terrorism. As a Muslim blogger wrote about the Tiller murder:
Two men commit murder with the goal of influencing government policy in the United States. The crimes occur one day apart. Both are religiously motivated. The Muslim is charged with terrorism. The Christian is not.
On the other hand, anyone who tries to label the maniacs who committed the murders as “right wingers” is painting with too wide a brush.
The murders – and the prevention of potential future attacks – are part of an important law enforcement issue. But just as it was insane to invade Iraq based upon a false linkage with 9/11, it would be insane to try to label millions of Americans as being dangerous just because they are republicans, or liberals or any other group.
Remember, many on the left say that the people and the treasury are being looted by the big corporations and fat cats . See this, this and this. So don’t fall for the old divide and conquer trick of trying to distr act from the populist anger which both the right and the left righteously feel at being ripped off.
And the fact that the guy who murdered the guard is anti-semitic does not mean that everyone who questions Israel’s oppressive policies is a bad guy. Remember, many Israeli citizens question… Continue reading

‘9/11 Press for Truth’ on Channel 12 Draws Huge Support from Colorado Public Television Viewers
Program will repeat at 2:00, 9:00 and midnight on Saturday
DENVER — (June 4, 2009) — KBDI has always been at the forefront of controversial programming and last night was no exception. As the first broadcast station in the United States to air the controversial documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, which claims a 9/11 cover-up, KBDI showed that it is not afraid to touch on sensitive subjects.
Due to viewer response to the program, Channel 12 will repeat the program Saturday, June 6 at 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., followed by an encore at midnight.
During the premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at the World Trade Center, and 9/11 Press for Truth producer Kyle Hence and director Ray Nowosielski were in the studio to give more insight into why they believed 9/11 was a cover-up and why the American public should be screaming for answers.
Supporters of the documentary hope that because of the risk KBDI took by putting 9/11 Press for Truth on the air that more PBS stations across the nation will take a chance and broadcast the controversial documentary.
Press for Truth’s producer Kyle Hence already has heard the cries saying people from all over the country have been forwarding his e-mails on… Continue reading

— (May 26, 2009) — 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent documentary that claims
a 9/11 cover-up, has been shown in theatres and broadcast overseas, but it hasn’t
been aired on a U.S. broadcast station.
That will change next week when KBDI-Channel 12 premiers the controversial
documentary Wednesday, June 3 at 7 p.m.
During Channel 12’s premiere, Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son Bobby at
the World Trade Center, and 9/11Press for Truth producer Kyle Hence will join
KBDI-Channel 12’s Shari Bernson in KBDI’s studio.
9/ll Press for Truth emerged from a group of grieving activist families that
joined together to demand a press for truth. Five of the families — including McIlvaine and three of the famous “Jersey Girls” — tell their story in the documentary, providing argument for why 9/11 still needs investigation.
The families found an ally in Paul Thompson, who wrote a definitive 9/11 timeline, and also found allies in the filmmakers who stitch together rare, overlooked news clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing what is portrayed as a pattern of lies, deception and spin.
The documentary asserts that although independent investigations began within weeks of both Pearl Harbor and the Kennedy assassination, the same was not true of the attacks of September 11, and the formation of the 9/11 Commission was strongly opposed by many in Washington, including the Bush Administration. It was only due to pressure from the 9/11 families, led by twelve calling themselves the Family Steering… Continue reading
