9/11 Truth for Peace? Sydney's Sept 11 Protest Calls for End of Afghan War!
Sydney's Sept 11 Protest Calls for End of Afghan War!
August 24, 2010
By John Bursill
John Bursill's Blog at visibility911.com/
So why should we believe that "9/11 Truth" can stop the war in Afghanistan and bring the "War on Terrorism" to an end?
I will lay out below the non-conspiratorial reasons why it is vitally important that we continue to demand accountability from our governments, on why it is they went to war on our behalf in 2001. I will also argue why I am correct to strongly assert that the pursuit of 9/11 truth and a criminal investigation of those events is the only practical path to peace today. Details of an upcoming Sydney "9/11 Truth for Peace" Protest on September 11th, 2010 are at the bottom of this article.
On the 11th of September 2001 the world entered a very dark chapter of its history! We were promised a 100 years of war in this "New American Century" fighting "the terrorists" wherever the American Empire deemed they were, and at the time of their choosing. We were told that this "New Pear Harbor" event carried out on 9/11 by the CIA born Al-Qaeda was a fair and reasonable reason to carry out a preemptive strike against their supporters the Taliban, by the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.
The vast majority of the world's population and its governments rallied behind the US determined to fight Islamic terrorism together world wide. Although some more skeptical commentators and governments were cautious with their support for this so called "War on Terrorism", they found themselves intimidated into silence. For the Bush/Cheney Administration and its powerful media supporters made it abundantly clear "that you are with us or you are with the terrorists" GWB.

9 Years Later -- Why 9/11 Truth Still Matters
By John Albanese
August 25, 2010
On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced that an estimated $2.3 Trillion in Pentagon spending was missing -- and unaccounted for -- from the Pentagon. One day later, on 9/11, the story also disappeared, along with any semblances of governmental accountability and journalistic integrity.
In the wake of 9/11 America was a traumatized nation where asking difficult questions was often perceived as unpatriotic and equated with disloyalty.
Forget the fact that $2.3 Trillion equals the GDP of Italy. Forget that the military only spent an estimated $311 billion in the year 2000 - and that approximately 7.5 times that amount had disappeared. We were at war the very next day on 9/11 -- and that was all that mattered. Forget that Italy had just disappeared from the map.
That was the power of 9/11.
And in the years that followed it appeared that no lie was too big, no claim too outrageous, no initiative too insane, to trigger an appropriate response from either the media or the public. Accountability was replaced with blind nationalism and comforting platitudes.

Through Pain and Sacrifice, the American Promise Will Be Fulfilled
August 17, 2010
Donna Marsh O'Connor
September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows
In February of 2002 a group of family members of 9/11 victims formed September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows in order to challenge the ever inflating sentiment and hysteria that led our nation into (eventually) two wars; that led to the death of thousands of U.S. servicemen and women, countless civilian casualties, and an era of perpetual fear-mongering perpetrated by politicians that today places us squarely in the viral debate over a place of worship near Ground Zero.
Despite the fact that PT (as we often like to call ourselves) has been around from almost the beginning, it is this acrimonious debate, fueled by the mainstream media's voracious appetite for angry controversy that our voices are sought after.
When we asked for an end to the sentiments of retribution and hostility did anyone hear?

New 9/11 Truth Music Video, Trouble in the Rubble
Posted to YouTube Aug 18 2010
by Vic Sadot
"Trouble In The Rubble" ~ Vic Sadot music video at YouTube (5:42)
Trouble in the Rubble was written by Vic Sadot after reading the Associated Press article on the 9/11 rescue dogs by Amy Westfeldt. It was run in the Washington Post on October 20, 2006. It also ran in the News Journal of Wilmington DE and numerous other papers on October 21, 2006. It reveals the curious fact that many of the rescue dogs of 9/11 had their feet burned by "white-hot debris". The reporter did not question or explain how this came to be. While this story is consistent with other reports of pools of molten steel still being "white-hot" many weeks after the free-fall collapse and disintegration of the World Trade Center towers, it is not consistent with the official conspiracy story that the towers fell into rubble as a result of jet fuel fires after Muslims flew planes into the World Trade Center buildings. The news story inspired this topical song.
Vic Sadot is a singer-songwriter based in Berkeley, CA best known for his tribute song to the late-great Phil Ochs, Broadside Balladeer. He is now available for solo bookings & political protests in the Bay Area. See videos at www.youtube.com/vicsadot and hear songs at www.last.fm/music/vic+sadot

We need to continue to seek the truth about 9/11
August 8, 2010
This guest column is by Kevin Ryan, a member of the 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington
Over the past three years, a group of concerned Bloomington citizens has worked to raise the public consciousness about the need for 9/11 truth. These folks are sometimes called "conspiracy theorists" because they do not believe the official version of events. Once people get by their initial reactions to 9/11 questioning, however, much can be learned in the process.
To begin with, we all understand the definition of a conspiracy to be a secret plan, among two or more people, to commit a crime. Yet when faced with emotionally charged events like 9/11, many of us pretend that the definition of the word has changed.
It is certain that unless you believe these crimes were committed by one person acting alone, you believe in a 9/11 conspiracy. But people today have been trained to use the word to mean only a small subset of conspiracies enacted by powerful people, like government officials.
For those who redefine the word in this way, al-Qaida is not capable of a conspiracy, and belief in conspiracies committed by powerful people is not rational. We are therefore left with the notion that conspiracies are irrational altogether, despite the fact that our news and our laws are chock-full of conspiracy charges.

Apology to readers...
You will notice I am once again updating the website - finally! I apologize for the interruption and appreciate your patience. On July 30 my hard drive crashed, taking with it several years worth of the files, emails, addresses, software, calendar and other assorted information needed to manage this site. Hence, we've been in limbo since then. Unfortunately, my backup drive had crashed some time ago and I'd not yet replaced it so I'm having to refuse to go into panic mode thinking about everything that's lost on that drive, and am looking for a reliable data recovery company to salvage our frozen history. (Yes, recommendations welcome! janice [at] 911truth.org, please) and the money to pay for that expensive procedure. Fortunately, a true friend loaned me the money for a new laptop, so we are back!
If any of you are awaiting my response to your email sent during July, it's not forthcoming! Please resend and understand I'm really not rude - just temporarily lost! And at the risk of proselytizing, I will take a moment to strongly recommend you go RIGHT NOW and get a backup drive if you don't already have one ... Until I lost access to this stuff, I really had no idea how frustrating the simplest things can be or how much I relied on this technology to manage life!
Again, thanks to everyone for your patience and continued readership and support. This week I will try to post the most important 9/11-related news of the last few weeks, such as the few articles added below. Without the software I'm used to, it will take some time to hand-code everything for proper formatting, but it WILL happen!

Declaration of Accountability
August 5, 2010
by Carol Brouillet
Announcement of Declarataion of Accountability and related radio interview
Declaration of Accountability (see below for text) with Charlotte Dennett and Kristina Borjesson.
In the aftermath of the Understanding Deep Politics Conference, held in Santa Cruz in May 2010, activists gathered together in a retreat to build upon the insights and information presented at the conference, and to explore more deeply the conference's theme- Who are we? What are the problems? What are the the solutions? What can we do together that we cannot do alone? Drawing upon the group's wisdom, they were inspired to write a declaration, and a call to action to cast light upon deep forces, despotically trying to control humanity, and to inspire, awaken and empower a broad coalition to work together to regain control over our lives and our future.

Declaration of Accountability
When governments cease to serve the will of the people and instead serve the interests of powerful elites unaccountable to the rule of law, it is incumbent upon citizens of the world to withdraw support from these institutions and replace them with legitimate governments of, by, and for the people. ...

9/11 Truth Billboard in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
In what may be the first of it's kind in the nation, a group of 9/11 Truth activists organized, designed and paid for a commercial billboard in which 1,200 Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth invite the public to "Examine the Evidence."
(Photo of the billboard: http://www.hopedance.org/images/stories/ae911billboard-4.jpg)
The 24' (w) x 12' (h) billboard was installed sometime Thurs. afternoon, Aug. 5, 2010 on South Higuera, just south of Elks Lane in San Luis Obispo (near the Sutcliffe Cemetery). [ MAP: http://tinyurl.com/24jcasv ].
The activists who brought this matter to the people of San Luis Obispo County and the thousands that will drive by the billboard over the next 8 weeks realize that the evidence we are attempting to share is difficult to digest. Many simply cannot bear to question the official version of what happened on 9/11 because the implications are so difficult to face.

Rep. Weiner blasts GOP foes of 9/11 workers' health fund
by Brett Michael Dykes
July 30, 2010
New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner is plainly fired up and ready to go. In a losing battle to secure passage of a bill to fund health care and compensation for ill 9/11 rescue workers, he unleashed a tirade against what he called unprincipled GOP opponents of the measure. Watch his outburst, which concluded in him smashing down the House rostrum microphone:
The House voted down the bill, which would have provided $3.2 billion over the next 10 years to fund free health care for 9/11 rescue and recovery workers who have fallen ill from toxic smoke and debris they breathed at the World Trade Center site. The bill would have also provided $4.2 billion in compensation over that same span. The legislation proposed to pay for the benefits by closing a tax loophole on foreign subsidiaries that do business in the United States.
