9/11 Truth Activist to Sue Glenn Beck and Fox News for Defamation
Friday, June 12, 2009
An East Coast 9/11 truth activist is preparing to file a defamation lawsuit against TV / radio personality, Glenn Beck, the producers of the Glenn Beck Program, and the Fox News Channel.
Specifically, Greg Hoover will be suing the above-described defendants in Federal Court for Beck's having repeatedly broadcast statements characterizing those who question the government's official version of the events of 9/11 as, "anarchists," "terrorists" and as persons denying the Holocaust.
The complaint will note that - on October 22, 2007 - Beck suggested that those identifying themselves as associated with the 9/11 truth movement are "dangerous" "anarchists" who deny the Holocaust, and are "the kind of group that Timothy McVeigh would come from."

9/11 Truth Comes Home
It's late spring 2009 in New York City and an unannounced unidentified U.S. government plane streaks across town. Recollecting the horrors of 9/11, the incident scares the he-be-gee-bees out of the citizenry. Some miles to the north, U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer (D/NY), while attending an April 18th "Tour of the Battenkill" annual bicycle race in Cambridge, New York, responds to a question regarding efforts here in New York City to establish a new investigation of 9/11. Lending his qualified support to such an inquiry, he said that he was positively disposed toward a new investigation into the events of 9/11, though his support for such a probe would depend on the form it would take. "I think it's not a bad idea," he said. "You know, you've got to do it in a good way, but yes, I'd be for it."
An associate of Schumer, New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, also recommended a fresh look at the events of September 11, 2001. Commenting this past May 27th to a young reporter who himself had suffered the loss of a loved one during 9/11, the senator responded to the question of a new investigation by suggesting that "another review, or a fuller hearing" is warranted given the number of unanswered questions put forward by victims families since 9/11. "I think those questions should be answered," she stated, going on to affirm that, "it's important that every family member have every question answered."

A Commitment to More Civil and Effective Collaboration in the 9/11 Truth Movement
This statement was originally published in February of 2007 and has since remained posted at our About Us page; today it seems timely to repost it to the front page. Given the current climate of fear and hatred swirling about us--indeed, throughout our society, perpetuated by much of the media, government spokespersons and individuals seething with hatred--we would do well to re-commit, as a community of truth advocates, to continuing truly 'civil and effective' work.
Because we still lack subpoena and discovery powers, members of the 9/11 truth movement and American citizens as a whole will not be able to fully connect the "dots" of 9/11 events until key classified documents and videos are leaked or released. In the meantime, many of us will develop theories about those events and what really occurred. Given the incompleteness of the facts at hand, our theories will invariably differ. They therefore can and should be sincerely discussed and analyzed, but this debate must not obscure the reality that the investigative tasks we face still remain extremely challenging.
We believe our campaign to expose the truth of 9/11 offers the world more essential insights into current political and economic reality than any other modern movement and therefore can empower the most profound social transformation of our age. This work is far too important to debilitate with egotism, zealotry or self-inflicted wounds, and we must make every effort to sustain the unprecedented progress we have made.
Because the 9/11 truth movement presents grave moral, legal and political threats to those in power, we would be naïve to not anticipate covert governmental intervention in our activities and attempts to divide, disrupt and discredit us by promoting hateful or repellant theories and sowing internal discord. Indeed, the greatest risk these forces pose to our work is not espionage or disinformation; it is the provocation of destructive mistrust between authentic activists.
We the undersigned therefore commit ourselves to work together towards our greater goals with the least possible rancor and internal strife. We agree to reject ad hominem denunciations and attacks upon others' motives, and focus our critical attention upon the logic, factual evidence and probability supporting certain hypotheses instead. Our ultimate goal must be the full disclosure of 9/11 truth, which is disserved by factional warfare on behalf of partial points of view. We will strive to fill in the gaps of the evidentiary record, so that facts dictate our conclusions rather than conjecture or emotional charges and appeals.
Finally, since we ourselves must embody the societal changes we wish to see, we vow to continue our work with fierce devotion, but also with mutual respect, selflessness and above all, honesty.

What the Murders of Dr. Tiller and Holocaust Museum Guard Really Mean
June 10, 2009
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:
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.

9/11 World Trade Center Expert to Give 100th Talk in San Diego Area
To: NATIONAL EDITORS
Contact: Dwain Deets of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, +1-760-445-3242, dadeets (at) cox [dot] net
SAN DIEGO, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14, 2009, architect Richard Gage, AIA, will give his 100th talk on behalf of more than 640 architects and engineers who cite evidence of explosive demolition as the cause for collapse of the three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11. After careful examination of forensics data inconsistent with the official account, these professionals are calling for a new, independent investigation into the 9/11 atrocities.
A practicing architect for more than 20 years, Gage is the founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth). Comprised of more than 3,600 petition-signers, members, architects and engineers, the organization contends at its Web site, AE911Truth.org, that the official FEMA and NIST reports provide insufficient evidence to explain the towers' destruction. AE911Truth points in particular to the destruction of the third high-rise, World Trade Center 7, which was not hit by an aircraft yet came down in less than seven seconds. The group bases its conclusions solely on forensic evidence and does not engage in conspiracy theories or in assigning blame for the destruction.

WeAreChangeLA confronts 9/11 criminal 'General' Richard Myers
Can we hope that one day Americans will honor courageous individuals who confront their own fear to stand up and question "authorities" to demand truth and accountability? As a nation, we remember Thomas Jefferson and George Washington with great honor, yet had they not likewise stood up to reject tyrannical "authority" we would not have America at all. Unfortunately, in 2009, rather than honor present day courage, nationalist fever leads otherwise good people to vehemently shout down honest questioning and dissent, then put us in a choke hold while they drag us away. Shame on you, America, who chooses to be deceived, to pay money to listen to criminals reinforce your nationalist pride while soldiers and children die because of your lack of courage. Shame...

On May 20, 2009, General Richard Myers was at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California to give a talk and a book signing. Bruno Bruhwiler and Jeremy Rothe-Kushel of WeAreChangeLA were there to call into question the 'General's' credibility when it came to talking about 9/11 and threats to the nation.

Something “Very Wrong” in State Dept History Office
Excellent reporting from the Federation of American Scientists' Project on Government Secrecy. Since the State Department's Office of the Historian produces "the official documentary history of U.S. foreign policy and one of the most important vehicles for declassification of historical records", 75% of employees alleging "lack of transparency," among other problems is significant. On the other hand, perhaps we can hope "departures of experienced staff historians" from this 'official' foreign relations history-creation office may bode well for other organizations (The National Security Archive, for instance) documenting accurate history.

FAS Project on Government Secrecy's Secrecy News
An Inspector General review (pdf) of the State Department Office of the Historian (HO) last month confirmed that there were serious management defects in the Office and recommended reassignment of its Director as well as other changes.
The Office of the Historian is responsible for production of the Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series, which is the official documentary history of U.S. foreign policy and one of the most important vehicles for declassification of historical records.
Allegations of mismanagement and declining performance had surrounded the Office for years until the Chairman of the State Department Historical Advisory Committee, Prof. Wm. Roger Louis, resigned last December to dramatize his concerns that the FRUS series was "at risk." (See "State Dept: Crisis in the 'Foreign Relations' Series," Secrecy News, December 11, 2008).
"In varying degrees, nearly 75 percent of the present HO employees interviewed ... were critical of the way the office is run," the IG reported. "They alleged favoritism, cronyism, a lack of transparency, lack of interest in the FRUS, disparagement of the staff, suspicion, an absence of leadership, and, in general, the creation of an unhappy workplace."

Philadelphia Inquirer Continues Excellent Coverage of 9/11-Saudi Lawsuit
June 9, 2009
At the moment the north tower of the World Trade Center collapsed at 10:28 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, Sharon Premoli was scrambling up an escalator from the below-ground concourse toward the street with dozens of other office workers in a desperate bid to escape.
She looked behind her and saw two things that are burned forever in her memory: A human chain of evacuees riding the escalator and a boiling cloud of dust and debris racing toward them.
The force of that swirling storm picked her up and threw her into nearby storefront. After she awoke, she said, she soon realized she was lying on the lifeless body of a man and that she was covered with his blood.

Anthrax War - Dead Silence
The provocative new film and book about the untold story of the 2001 U.S. Anthrax Attacks and the dark secrets of the shadowy world of modern day germ weapons research.
When the 2001 anthrax attacks hit the USA in the days following 9/11, it was like a one-two punch against the Republic. Workers in New York’s media center who had seen the planes swoop too low over their heads en route to the Twin Tower were now terrified of their mail. In Washington, Capitol Hill was evacuated and White House staffers were chewing CIPRO tablets.
It was our scariest collective nightmare come to life - the attack of deadly invisible bugs. It seemed like a self-fulfilling prophecy, the preceding years filled as they were with scores of films, best-selling books, TV shows and articles on the coming of “Bio-Terror.” Indeed, for the first time in history, national leaders and the military actually acted out high-tech “germ attack” war games, one of which had a scenario shockingly close to the actual events.

Encouraging Martyrdom Rather than Accessing Truth
So the US is now "encouraging martyrdom" to avoid facing "challenges" because "the reliability of those [Gitmo detainees'] statements would be challenged, making trials difficult and drawing new political pressure over detainee treatment", even if the process lacks "international credibility." So, let's just let them plead guilty and kill them. They become martyrs, we don't have to confront our own war crimes, and nobody has to figure out what to do with them. Fabulous ... This way, we can just put the whole thing to bed without learning the truth, the same way we were able to promptly execute Saddam Hussein who was thus conveniently silenced regarding his long history of being supported, armed and facilitated by the US.
U.S. May Permit 9/11 Guilty Pleas in Capital Cases
By WILLIAM GLABERSON
The Obama administration is considering a change in the law for the military commissions at the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, that would clear the way for detainees facing the death penalty to plead guilty without a full trial.

In Latest Deflection Spin, Dick Cheney Blames 9/11 on Richard Clarke
Thanks to "Loose Nuke" for bringing this to our attention at 911blogger.com. Cheney now accuses former counterterroism czar Richard Clarke of missing the warnings of 9/11??? Amazing...
Dick Uncut: "Daily Show" Calls Out Cheney For Blaming 9/11 On Richard Clarke (VIDEO)
June 6, 2009
Thanks to a recent appearance at the National Press Club, Dick Cheney blamed Richard Clarke for leaving the nation vulnerable to attack ahead of 9/11 saying, "He obviously missed it." Cheney was referring to the threat from al Qaeda which Clarke had emphatically warned the administration about several times before the fall of 2001.
Jon Stewart was not pleased with Dick Cheney for these accusations, nor the members of the National Press Club who failed to challenge him about the assertion. In a segment called "Dick Uncut," Stewart used dark humor to take both the former Vice President and the media to task for the events leading up to 9/11 through the waterboarding of detainees. It simultaneously makes you laugh and want to punch a whole through the wall.
