History Commons Projects, Update on May 7, 2009

The busiest project this week was the Civil Liberties Timeline, which has expanded
its chapter on the PROMIS application, reportedly the granddaddy of today’s
government surveillance software. Claims that the software was distributed to
other countries have been disputed, but a 1992 Congressional investigation found
two Justice Department memos saying a version of the software was about to be
passed to Israel.

JAREK KUPSC — “The Reflecting Pool,” trying to tell the truth, in America, through film.

by Reprehensor

Images and Words

Anthony Hall is like many other 9/11 skeptics. At some point, after examining the events of 9/11 and the international consequences of that foul deed, (particularly the

Cover Image of The American Empire and the Fourth World

consequences that befell countries with a predominantly Arab/Muslim population), Mr. Hall decided to speak out. The difference between Hall and most 9/11 skeptics, is that Mr. Hall is a sitting academic at a university in Lethbridge, Alberta, in Canada.

Hall joined a growing list of Canadian academics who have chosen to speak out publicly; John McMurtry , Graeme MacQueen , Michael Keefer , and of course, Michel Chossudovsky , a pioneer in 9/11 skepticism.…

History Commons Projects, Update on April 16, 2009

As the History Commons e-mail returns after a break, one of the busiest projects
this week was the Loss of Civil Liberties Timeline. It has more about previously-
and still-secret memos from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel
about the Geneva Conventions, rendition, and detainees. Some of the OLC’s
memos were later withdrawn, because of the “doubtful nature” of
their propositions.

Another active project was the Detainee Abuse Timeline, where a contributor
has added material about Binyam Mohamed, a British resident captured in Pakistan
in 2002 and then held in Morocco, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo, before his release

‘The World is Turning’ – Don Paul’s new book

The World Is Turning: ” ‘9/11’ “, the Movement for Justice, and Reclaiming America for the World combines two earlier books by Don Paul and much other material into a single volume. This book of books, including pieces that expose
2008’s bail-out of commercial and investment Banks, altogether takes us on a
crucially revealing journey into realities and lies that shape our present….
Most importantly, this record of seven years’ work gives us tools to penetrate
layers of deceit, to perceive guilt, to arrive at justice, and to free ourselves.”

Change Needs Truth – New 9/11 Brochure for Obama Inauguration

January 17, 2009

DC 911Truth has produced an attractive new brochure to be distributed at the
Obama Inauguration and surrounding events. On the cover, President Obama is
asked to “help America learn the truth about 9/11,” but the interior
is
aimed at general audiences who may not be aware of problems with the
official account, or who may be quick to dismiss any questions as conspiracy
theories.

In a concise and straightforward way, the brochure presents the many facts
that challenge the 9/11 Commission Report (including doubts expressed by
Co-Chairs Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton themselves), as well as
contradictions in the accepted narrative about air defense, the alleged
hijackers, the destruction of the World Trade Center, and the anthrax
attacks.…

Becoming Our Government, Making the Future Our Own, by Don Paul

Don Paul is a writer, musician and activist who was among the first to speak out about 9/11 fraud. His books, including “‘9/11’: Facing Our Fascist State” and “Waking Up From Our Nightmare (with Jim Hoffman),” have inspired many to seek the truth about 9/11 and other critical issues.

A new compilation of Don’s writings is called The World is Turning: “9/11,” the Movement for Justice, & Reclaiming America for the World. This new book combines two earlier and much-acclaimed Don Paul books with many articles that are new to print and that extend into late 2008.…

David Ray Griffin’s ‘The New Pearl Harbor Revisited’ rated ‘Pick of the Week’ by Publishers Weekly

The nearly 40% of American people who doubt the official account regarding
the September 11, 2001 attacks will be gratified to learn that their misgivings
have become recommended reading by a pillar of the book trade, Publishers
Weekly
.

The leading starred review on PW‘s “Web
Pick of the Week
” is Dr. David Ray Griffin’s newly released The
New Pearl Harbor Revisited
(Interlink/Olive Branch press, 2008).

In its November 24, 2008 online issue, PW writes:

Griffin “addresses many points in exhaustive detail, from the physical
impossibility of the official explanation of the towers’ collapse to
the Commission’s failure to scrutinize the administration to the NIST’s
contradiction of its own scientists to the scads of eyewitness and scientific
testimony in direct opposition to official claims.

Islamophobia and the “War on Terror”: the Continuing Pretext for U.S. Imperial Conquest

ISLAMOPHOBIA AND THE ”WAR ON TERROR”: THE CONTINUING PRETEXT FOR U.S. IMPERIAL CONQUEST

© Diana Ralph, Ph.D.Abstract

The 9-11 attacks were the pretext which sold the myth of evil Muslim terrorists imminently threatening Americans. That tale allowed the Cheney-led members of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) to implement their 1990 DPG plan for world control. The “war on terror” has nothing to do with protecting the U.S. and world’s people from “terrorists”, and everything to do with securing the American empire abroad and muzzling democracy and human rights at home.
