9/11 Report Cites Many Warnings About Hijackings

9/11 Report Cites Many Warnings About Hijackings

In the months before the Sept. 11 attacks, federal aviation officials reviewed dozens of intelligence reports that warned about Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, some of which specifically discussed airline hijackings and suicide operations, according to a previously undisclosed report from the 9/11 commission.

The report discloses that the Federal Aviation Administration, despite being focused on risks of hijackings overseas, warned airports in the spring of 2001 that if “the intent of the hijacker is not to exchange hostages for prisoners, but to commit suicide in a spectacular explosion, a domestic hijacking would probably be preferable.”

The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie

The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie

In discussing my second 9/11 book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I have often said, only half in jest, that a better title might have been "a 571-page lie." (Actually, I was saying "a 567-page lie," because I was forgetting to count the four pages of the Preface.) In making this statement, one of my points has been that the entire Report is constructed in support of one big lie: that the official story about 9/11 is true.

Taliban government ‘offered bin Laden trial before 9/11′

Taliban government 'offered bin Laden trial before 9/11'

The Taliban government in Afghanistan offered to present Osama bin Laden for a trial long before the attacks of September 11, 2001, but the US government showed no interest, according to a senior aide to the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar.
"Even before the [9/11] attacks, our Islamic Emirate had tried through various proposals to resolve the Osama issue. One such proposal was to set up a three-nation court, or something under the supervision of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference [OIC]," Muttawakil said.
"But the US showed no interest in it. They kept demanding we hand him over, but we had no relations with the US, no agreement of any sort. They did not recognise our government."

Why Louis Freeh Should Be Investigated For 9/11

Why Louis Freeh Should Be Investigated For 9/11

“The FBI has proven for the past decade it cannot identify and prevent acts of terrorism against the United States and its citizens at home and abroad. Even worse, there is virtually no effort on the part of the FBI’s International Terrorism Unit to neutralize known and suspected terrorists residing within the United States.”[1] ...


Judicial Watch pointed to a “legacy of corruption” at the FBI under Freeh, listing the espionage scandal at Los Alamos National Laboratories, as well as “Filegate, Waco, the Ruby Ridge cover-up, the Olympic bombing frame-up of Richard Jewell, [and] falsification of evidence concerning the Oklahoma City bombing.”[4]

Secret Service Failures on 9/11: A Call for Transparency

Secret Service Failures on 9/11: A Call for Transparency

The U.S. Secret Service failed to do its job on September 11, 2001 in several important ways. These failures could be explained if the Secret Service had foreknowledge of the 9/11 events as they were proceeding. That possibility leads to difficult questions about how the behavior of Secret Service employees might have contributed to the success of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Answering those questions will require the release of existing interview transcripts as well as follow-up questioning, under oath, of a few key people within the agency.

Report: Intelligence Unit Told Before 9/11 to Stop Tracking Bin Laden

Report: Intelligence Unit Told Before 9/11 to Stop Tracking Bin Laden

A great deal of controversy has arisen about what was known about the movements and location of Osama bin Laden in the wake of his killing by US Special Forces on May 2 in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Questions about what intelligence agencies knew or didn't know about al-Qaeda activities go back some years, most prominently in the controversy over the existence of a joint US Special Forces Command and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) data mining effort known as "Able Danger."

What hasn't been discussed is a September 2008 Department of Defense (DoD) inspector general (IG) report, summarizing an investigation made in response to an accusation by a Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC) whistleblower, which indicated that a senior JFIC commander had halted actions tracking Osama bin Laden prior to 9/11.

Co-Chair of 9/11 Inquiry: American Government Covered Up State Assistance to Hijackers

The co-chair of the Congressional Joint 9/11 Inquiry (Bob Graham) today alleged a cover up by the U.S. government of state assistance by Saudi Arabia to the 9/11 hijackers.

Graham is no flake. He was a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 10 years (including 18 months as chairman), member of the CIA External Advisory Board, chairman of the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, 18-year U.S. senator, two-term governor of Florida, co-chair of the national commission on the BP oil spill, and member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission.

FBI Headquarters Thwarts Pre-9/11 Moussaoui Search, But Why?

FBI Headquarters Thwarts Pre-9/11 Moussaoui Search, But Why?

An FBI agent who interrogated Zacarias Moussaoui before Sept. 11, 2001, warned his supervisors more than 70 times that Moussaoui was a terrorist and spelled out his suspicions that the al-Qaeda operative was plotting to hijack an airplane.

What is striking about agent Samit's account, like the account of his office-mate Coleen Rowley, is the assumption of "criminal negligence" on the part of FBI headquarters, and RFU head David Frasca and Michael Maltbie in particular. Best I can see, criminal complicity has not been ruled out whatsoever.

Insiders voice doubts about CIA's 9/11 story

Former FBI agents say the agency's bin Laden unit misled them about two hijackers.
A growing number of former government insiders -- all responsible officials who served in a number of federal posts -- are now on record as doubting ex-CIA director George Tenet's account of events leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States. Among them are several special agents of the FBI, the former counterterrorism head in the Clinton and Bush administrations, and the chairman of the 9/11 Commission, who told us the CIA chief had been "obviously not forthcoming" in his testimony and had misled the commissioners.

Is Anyone Telling Us the Truth?

What are we to make of the failed Underwear Bomber plot, the Toothpaste, Shampoo, and Bottled Water Bomber plot, and the Shoe Bomber plot? These blundering and implausible plots to bring down an airliner seem far removed from al-Qaida's expertise in pulling off 9/11.

If we are to believe the U.S. government, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged al-Qaida "mastermind" behind 9/11, outwitted the CIA, the NSA, indeed all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies as well as those of all U.S. allies including Mossad, the National Security Council, NORAD, Air Traffic Control, Airport Security four times on one morning, and Dick Cheney, and with untrained and inexperienced pilots pulled off skilled piloting feats of crashing hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center towers, and the Pentagon, where a battery of state of the art air defenses somehow failed to function.

Recently released FBI documents prove the existence of highly sensitive National Security and criminal investigations of "Turkish Activities" in Chicago prior to September 11, 2001.

These documents add further support to many of the allegations that former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has claimed, in public and in Congress, since 2002. The documents were released under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request into an organization called the Turkish American Cultural Alliance (TACA), an organization repeatedly named by Ms. Edmonds as being complicit in the crimes that she became aware of when she was a translator at the FBI.

Senator Dayton: NORAD Lied About 9/11

In hearings last Friday, Sen. Dayton (D-MN) raised an obvious point: if the timeline of air defense response as promoted in the Kean Commission's best-selling book is correct, then the timeline presented repeatedly by NORAD during the last two years was completely wrong. Yet now no one at NORAD is willing to comment on their own timeline!

When the official story of 9/11 can be changed repeatedly without anyone ever being held accountable, we have no right to ever again expect honest government. Please read the following story and do your part to support Sen. Dayton for highlighting the contradiction, and to encourage the media to follow up.

Another Ex-CIA Official Speaks Out for 9/11 Truth

Why is it important that we not let the so-called conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 be drowned out?

After spending the better part of the last five years treating these theories with utmost skepticism, I have devoted serious time to actually studying them in recent months, and have also carefully watched several videos that are available on the subject. I have come to believe that significant parts of the 9/11 theories are true, and that therefore significant parts of the "official story" put out by the U.S. government and the 9/11 Commission are false. I now think there is persuasive evidence that the events of September did not unfold as the Bush administration and the 9/11 Commission would have us believe. The items below highlight the major questions surrounding 9/11 but do not constitute a detailed recounting of the evidence available.

Why the Planes Were Not Intercepted on 9/11: The Wall Street Lawyer and the Special Ops Hijack Coordinator

Why were none of the four planes intercepted?

Some of the most startling facts about the air defense failures have to do with the utter failure of communications between the agencies responsible for protecting the nation. At the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), two people stood out in this failed chain of communications. One was a lawyer on his first day at the job, and another was a Special Operations Commander who was never held responsible for his critical role, or even questioned about it.

Just after September 11th 2001, many governments began investigations into possible insider trading related to the terrorist attacks of that day.

Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Monte Carlo, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United States, and others initiated investigations. Although considerable evidence of insider trading exists, none of the investigations resulted in a single indictment because the people identified as having been involved in the suspicious trades were seen as unlikely to have been associated with those alleged to have committed the 9/11 crimes.

"I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile" made it clear that she was ill equipped to be advising anyone on matters of national security.

The NIST WTC 7 Report: Bush Science reaches its peak

In a famous book by Antoine de Saint Exupery, a little prince from another planet asks the narrator to draw a sheep. After several unsatisfactory attempts, the narrator simply draws a box and tells the little prince that the sheep is in the box. The little prince then exclaims -- "That is exactly the way I wanted it!"

Just so, the Bush Administration asked its scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for an explanation as to what happened at the World Trade Center (WTC) on 9/11. In response to this request, NIST drew up a series of fanciful stories over a period of years, each story differing from the previous one. Finally, after seven long years, NIST published its last story for WTC 7 by simply saying, in effect: "The explanation is in our computer."

NEW YORK CITY, May 16, 2004 - The Kean Commission was called to life in Nov. 2002, when the White House dropped its objections to an independent 9/11 investigation, after many months of persistent lobbying by September 11th families. At the time, this was seen as a victory for the relatives of those killed on September 11th, and for their allies in the fight for open government and accountability.

9/11 Truth Movement Launches Joint Website, Calls for New Investigation of Unexplained Facts

NEW YORK CITY, NY (June 8, 2004) A new umbrella organization called 911Truth.org today announced the launch of a website to serve as a clearinghouse for the highest quality work of the emerging 911 truth movement. The site highlights the efforts of leading investigators, authors, videographers, and activists calling for a truly independent investigation of still unexplained facts.

According to David Kubiak, executive director of the organization, “The discoveries of independent 9/11 researchers, recent whistleblower testimony, and the demands of victim families have now reached the point where a coordinated approach is necessary. 911Truth.org will introduce the most important news on all these fronts as well as empower activism. Given just the currently known facts, we feel that exposing the full truth of 9/11 before the next election is an urgent and truly patriotic necessity.”

After many months of pressure from victim family groups, the Bush administration established the Kean Commission last year to investigate the events of 9/11. This body will conclude its inquiry on July 26. However, many concerned observers have noted that the Commission is deeply compromised by its members’ political, financial, and personal ties with those they should be investigating. Kyle Hence, founder of 9/11 Citizens Watch and a member of the 911Truth.org board, said, “Through my work with 9/11 families, I have witnessed growing disillusionment with this investigation’s direction, depth and sincerity. I believe it is now obvious that the Commission’s findings will reveal little new information because it still refuses to address the hard… Continue reading

Why is there a 9/11 truth movement?

SF 9/11 Truth Conference march on City Hall photo

Photo Credit: Jan Hoyer, www.digitalstyledesigns.com


IN THE THIRD YEAR AFTER SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, the U.S. government still has not answered the most important questions about what really happened. And the official 9/11 Commission has failed to ask.

For too long we have allowed the government to operate in the shadows.

Fighter planes were not dispatched in a timely manner to intercept the 9/11 flights – in blatant violation of longstanding, standard operating procedures. Why? Why did the U.S. chain of command (Bush, Rumsfeld, Gen. Myers) by their own admission remain inactive during the actual attacks?

On the morning of Sept. 11 itself, the U.S. military conducted scheduled wargames to rehearse scenarios that included plane hijackings and an “errant aircraft” crashing into a government building (AP, Aug. 2002).

Even granted this was a coincidence: How can high officials like Condoleeza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld get away with testifying that “no one could have imagined” planes would be used as weapons against buildings?

Why won’t the government identify who made profits by short-selling the stock of United Airlines, American Airlines and the WTC re-insurers in the week before the attacks? Where did the many known advance warnings of the attacks originate? Were these warnings really missed?

The Kean Commission (the official 9/11 investigation currently making headlines) was called to life only after Sept. 11th families lobbied stubbornly for 14 months. The same families have demanded the resignation of the Commission’s executive director, Philip Zelikow, for his evident conflicts of interest. Although Zelikow… Continue reading

“It has become increasingly clear to me and many people I work with that our government lies constantly and cannot be trusted.  Heads nod when one says this, yet when questions are raised about what actually happened on September 11, 2001,  there are some people who don’t even want the questions to be asked.

The way I know that there are many holes in the official story is that my 14-year-old daughter did her term paper this year on what actually happened on 9-11-01. She found dozens of facts and pieces of evidence that contradict the official story touted by Washington and the corporate media. My own subsequent research has convinced me that the official story is a big lie. That does not mean that I know exactly who planned the attacks, how they did it, and why they did it. I do know, however, that the government lies on many smaller, less significant issues, so why wouldn’t they lie about this huge issue?

The only way a thorough investigation will happen is if we, the people, demand it. Whether you trust the official story about 9-11 or not, we must all support the principle of basing our laws and policies on “truth, whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

If you believe that real democracy requires open and accountable government, I urge you to assist the 9/11 family members and support groups such as www.911truth.org and www.911visibility.org in their just struggle for the truth.

GROWING 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT LAUNCHES JOINT WEBSITE, CALLS FOR NEW INVESTIGATION OF UNEXPLAINED FACTS

New York, NY (June 8, 2004) — A new umbrella organization called 911Truth.org today announced the launch of a website to serve as a clearinghouse for the highest quality work of the emerging 911 truth movement. The site highlights the efforts of leading investigators, authors, videographers, and activists calling for a truly independent investigation of still unexplained facts.

According to David Kubiak, executive director of the organization, “The discoveries of independent 9/11 researchers, recent whistleblower testimony, and the demands of victim families have now reached the point where a coordinated approach is necessary. 911Truth.org will introduce the most important news on all these fronts as well as empower activism. Given just the currently known facts, we feel that exposing the full truth of 9/11 before the next election is an urgent and truly patriotic necessity.”

After many months of pressure from victim family groups, the Bush administration established the Kean Commission last year to investigate the events of 9/11. This body will conclude its inquiry on July 26. However, many concerned observers have noted that the Commission is deeply compromised by its members’ political, financial, and personal ties with those they should be investigating. Kyle Hence, founder of 9/11 Citizens Watch and a member of the 911Truth.org board, said, “Through my work with 9/11 families, I have witnessed growing disillusionment with this investigation’s direction, depth and sincerity. I believe it is now obvious that the Commission’s… Continue reading

Medea Benjamin, Co-founder, CodePink: Women for Peace and Global Exchange


Dear Peace & Justice Organizers,

There are many ways to promote peace & justice in our world, but when we face an immediate conflict, indeed a promised “war without end,” it first helps to step back and look at how it all began. Our current “War on (some) Terror” was birthed, if not conceived, on September 11, 2001. That day was a terrible funeral pyre for many, but a golden opportunity for some.

Only a year before, the Project for a New American Century, a think tank for the neocon crowd that now controls the White House and the Pentagon, published a martial wish list entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” Their report outlined our “urgent need” to inflate defense spending, control Mideast oil, deploy exotic new weapons, and reorganize our forces to fight and win several simultaneous wars. Their stated goal was full spectrum global dominance, a “Pax Americana,” but they grudged that such a transformation would take forever “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor.”

Consider then all the ignored warnings, quashed investigations and missing air defenses that preceded 9/11 and gave them this golden opportunity. And post-9/11 consider Condi Rice’s chilling remarks: “Now, we have an opportunity and an obligation to move forward together. Bold and comprehensive changes are sometimes only possible in the wake of catastrophic events… Just as World War II led to a fundamental reorganization of our national defense structure, so has September 11th made possible sweeping changes in the ways we… Continue reading

The Explosion of the 9-11 Truth Movement — U.S. Media’s Dirty Little Secret

by Bill Douglas

Published in Newtopia Magazine

A mass movement and a mountain of disturbing evidence has been growing beneath the radar of U.S. media. The U.S. media (including alternative media) has done an extraordinarily superhuman job of “hearing” “seeing” and “speaking no evil.” However, almost immediately after 9-11-2001’s horrendous attacks on New York and Washington D.C., many researchers, ordinary citizens, and journalists [who've been given  precious little print in U.S. papers or TV] began to smell something rotten . . . not in Denmark . . . but rather, right here in the good ol’ US of A.

This movement’s early roots began when many people scratched their heads in wonder at “how 4 commercial jet liners could fly hijacked for nearly an hour and a half the morning of 9-11, without any Air Force  fighter interceptor jets turning a wheel until it was too late,” as stated by acclaimed Canadian TV journalist, Barry Zwicker. Zwicker’s powerful documentary “The Great Deception,” which suggests top Bush Admin. officials were likely complicit in the 9-11 attacks, aired on Canada’s Vision TV network which is viewed by millions of Canadians. Unfortunately Americans in the U.S. have been “protected” from viewing this critical documentary. Researchers, like Zwicker and others, quickly learned that in 2001 before the 9-11 attacks 62 aircraft had been intercepted by Air Force fighter interceptor jets, and usually within 10 to 15 minutes of going off course.

Yet bizarrely, on 9-11 four commercial jets were hijacked off course for about… Continue reading

Surprise Green Presidential Nominee David Cobb Upsets Nader and Calls Party to 9/11 Truth

PRESS RELEASE
JUNE 30, 2004

 

Milwaukee, WI: Populist Texan lawyer, David Cobb, won a stunning second round victory over Ralph Nader’s forces to take the Green Party’s 2004 presidential nomination last Saturday. In another remarkable break with and for political commonsense, Cobb became the first US candidate for high public office to ever publicly call for 9/11 truth.

The move reflects increasing party concern with the corporate coup, media censorship, and the suspect convenience of 9/11 to justify long planned attacks on oil-rich lands, the environment and the Constitution. The convention crowd of over 800 delegates loudly cheered Cobb’s fiery acceptance speech as he condemned Washington’s bipartisan full spectrum dishonesty on these issues and backed a Green push for full spectrum disclosure:

 

“One of the things that the Greens are doing is creating a space and a political party for us to tell the truth! We must tell the truth. We must tell the truth about the ecological catastrophe that is looming. We must tell the truth about a racist and sexist and classist country and world. And we must force our elected representatives to tell the truth about whatever happened on September 11th, 2001!”

 

Green 9/11 activists were particularly evident in the delegations from California, Florida, Maine and of course New York. Indeed earlier in the day when the New York delegation got the traditional 60 seconds of mike time before announcing its vote count, instead of using this spotlight to tout the state’s glories, it… Continue reading

Lessons from History: Two days, one book, six videos invite a historic wake-up call

To understand the official lies of 9/11 and the media’s nodding response, it helps to know a little history. We highly recommend the following weekend course to illustrate some of the truly grand scams of recent memory. And since most of these frauds have already been exposed with no visible political effect, they also show why cynical leaders today might believe the public can be deceived at will. This in turn alerts you to how perilously close we are to the death of our republic and democracy. This is not intended to bum you out, just alert you to what has not worked. These stories also introduce a lot of pissed off elder veterans who may still be 9/11 ignorant, but could quickly recognize the deceit we face and become allies in our task.

JUDGE: GROUND ZERO PERIMETER IS PUBLIC PROPERTY
THE COURT: That’s the sidewalk. It says he was on the sidewalk. LT. GILBERT: The train station it is all sidewalk to the exit. The entrance and exit that is part of the station.

That entire area is the property. THE COURT: It is your possession? It is the possession of the Port Authority? MS. KELLY: Ground Zero is technically the property of the Port Authority.

Pod Theory, “Whatzits” and the Pentagon Controversy
Frustrated 9/11 researchers may naturally wish for an instant smoking gun, a killer clue like the one invariably discovered by detectives on the TV show CSI, something to finish off the official story in a single blow. Unfortunately, this impulse invites a lot of breathless misinformation, spurious theories, or e-mail reports from fabricated whistleblowers. Many of these notions are packaged as bombshell revelations in the area of physical evidence. Read on for a discussion of “pod theory,” “whatzits” and the Pentagon controversy…

INAUGURAL ISSUES


The autistic media silence notwithstanding, there is now enough exciting stuff happening to, for and courtesy of the 9/11 Truth movement that it’s time to start developing a news service for ourselves. These brief weekly bulletins are intended as a first step in that direction and we invite your help with news tips, backing and distribution spams.

Progress reports in this first outing are short and sweet and cover the following ground:

SUMMER OF TRUTH (STRATEGY & ONGOING CAMPAIGNS)

Reports on the Fahrenheit 9/11 and Peace & Justice 9/11 Eureka Campaigns

UPCOMING ACTIONS
9/11 education drives at the Boston Social Forum, the Alliance for Democracy and Veterans for Peace conventions, and Democratic National Convention.

Often when we report that “we” are doing something it means “we” in the very widest sense. Many times the people carrying out these actions including Fahrenheit 9/11 leafleting, sign hoisting, house party organizing and other 9/11 visibility actions are self-starting web site visitors who we have never seen or met. This contagious spread of 9/11 action and awareness across the heartland is obviously the most important aspect of our work and one that “we” hope you will report on as well as provoke on your own.

All these campaigns depend on that widening and any help on this front — whether physical, fiscal or tactical —… Continue reading

9/11 Truth at the Boston Social Forum

& The July 25 Antiwar Demo in Boston
(A personal report by Nicholas Levis, July 27)

Several thousand people from around the world attended last weekend’s Boston Social Forum to promote cooperation and cross-pollination among social justice movements. I don’t believe there has been this kind of energy, urgency and enthusiasm tied to a global perspective for far-reaching change since the decline of the Sixties movements. More than ever, people know that it all fits together: ecology, local economics and global finance, social justice, minority rights, women’s rights, the need for democratization, putting an end to the new global feudalism, imperialism and perpetual war. Most impressive was the obvious vitality of a wildly diverse, growing and determined American opposition to Bush, which understands that unseating him is only the beginning.

There were more than 600 events scheduled along ten “tracks,” and although the average time block featured about 30 simultaneous meetings, every room I passed seemed to be packed. I can hardly report on the whole thing!

A contingent of 9/11 Truth activists visited the Boston Social Forum to promote our own activities. We found that 9/11 Truth has turned into a welcome cause among antiwar, peace and social justice activists. The vast majority are willing to listen, they no longer consider screwy the idea that intel elements inside and outside the U.S. government allowed the attacks or were complicit. Nearly everyone in the scene by now has seen the Deception Dollar and is at least aware of our theses.… Continue reading

Sibel Edmonds update

According to the NY Times of July 29, an internal DoJ report has found Sibel Edmonds was at least “in part” fired because of her whistleblower activities in accusing the FBI of incompetence and a co-worker of suppressing documents relating to Sept. 11.

Whistle-Blowing Said to Be Factor in an F.B.I. Firing

By ERIC LICHTBLAU

Photo of interview with Sibel Edmonds

Sibel Edmonds

WASHINGTON, July 28 – A classified Justice Department investigation has concluded that a former F.B.I. translator at the center of a growing controversy was dismissed in part because she accused the bureau of ineptitude, and it found that the F.B.I. did not aggressively investigate her claims of espionage against a co-worker.

The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded that the allegations by the translator, Sibel Edmonds, “were at least a contributing factor in why the F.B.I. terminated her services,” and the F.B.I. is considering disciplinary action against some employees as a result, Robert S. Mueller III, director of the bureau, said in a letter last week to lawmakers. A copy of the letter was obtained by The New York Times.

Ms. Edmonds worked as a contract linguist for the F.B.I. for about six months, translating material in Turkish, Persian and Azerbaijani. She was dismissed in 2002 after she complained repeatedly that bureau linguists had produced slipshod and incomplete translations of important terrorism intelligence before and after the Sept. 11 attacks. She also accused a fellow Turkish linguist in the bureau’s Washington… Continue reading

You are about to be diagnosed & drugged

Those agape at the barbed-wire cage designated as a “free speech zone” in Boston may wonder how it can be topped for its fascist implications. Actually, this already happened last month and went largely unnoticed.

Early in his administration Bush invited a group of pharmaceutical firms, among them companies that have been financing him since he was Texas governor, to join a commission on mental health and disabilities known as the New Freedom Initiative.

In its report presented in June, NFI proposes a universal program of mental health “screening” for everyone in the United States – starting with a captive market of 52 million pupils and 6 million teachers in the schools. The panel recommends that those diagnosed with a syndrome receive a prescription regimen based on treatment algorithms devised by the participating drug companies. (Now what makes me think there is a syndrome waiting for pretty much everyone?) The algorithms (hey, science!) derive from a program already implemented by Bush in Texas.

Unfortunately, Orwellian moments like these are only going to come thicker. The thrust towards the New Feudalism, Corporate Totalitarianism, New World Order, or whatever other name you like is in the open now, and it will not slow down unless we arise as a people to end it.

The New Freedom program fits seamlessly into the Kean Commission report proposals for a national ID system using biometric indicators. If we are all about to be fingerprinted and retinal-scanned and fed into a single database integrating all federal… Continue reading

Cui Bono 9/11?

by Catherine Austin Fitts, former Asst. Secretary of Housing

(Click here for original)

“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature”s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

The Declaration of Independence

UnAnswered Question #1: Cui Bono?

Graphic for cui bonoA spirited and global citizens’ media was birthed by our hunger to learn the truth that lay inside the graves of those who gave their lives on 9/11. This citizens’ media brought forward the questions that people throughout the world raised and wanted answered.

These are the UnAnswered Questions of 9/11. These UnAnswered Questions are powerful. The persistence of the citizens’ media in raising them and demanding answers has illuminated the failure of those responsible to explain what happened or why.

These UnAnswered Questions have been supplied to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States — by the families of those who died that day, by 9/11 CitizensWatch and many others. To date, the Commission has declined to seriously investigate or address them. Those who have attended Commission hearings anticipate a report that justifies more 9/11 and war profiteering ? more otherwise unjustified public budgets and private profits for large banks, defense contractors and other large corporations.…

What are we doing?

The goal of our efforts here for the next three months should be to expose the truth of 9/11 before the election – or before whatever event is arranged to upstage the election.

And what is “the truth”?

The truth is that from the first, the 9/11 events were exploited without compunction to the benefit of the military-industrial-intelligence complex and the Bush cabal. 9/11 was used to justify long-planned invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan that may have otherwise been politically infeasible – to push through a long-standing domestic wish-list of repressive measures like the USA PATRIOT Act – and to shift trillions in budgeting priorities from butter to guns. The administration declared a perpetual “War on Terrorism” that “will not end in our lifetimes” (Cheney), which has been waged largely against peoples and countries universally acknowledged to have had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks, as with the unprovoked invasion of Iraq. As a response to anti-American terrorism, this strategy seems intentionally designed to make the problem much worse in the long run. Before 9/11, the hardliners of Project for a New American Century admitted they needed an enemy. Now they are making sure that there will always be one.

Based on the open-source evidence available to date, the truth of 9/11 is that the attacks could not have happened in the way they did without help on the inside of the U.S. government or within the vast hidden government apparatus. A real investigation (by whatever body) would have… Continue reading

Senator Dayton: NORAD Lied About 9/11

Sunday, August 1, 2004

By Nicholas Levis

Photo of NORAD headquartersMark Dayton has become the first U.S. senator to challenge the rush to consensus that “The 9/11 Commission Report” settles the open questions of Sept. 11, 2001.

In hearings last Friday, Sen. Dayton (D-MN) raised an obvious point: if the timeline of air defense response as promoted in the Kean Commission’s best-selling book is correct, then the timeline presented repeatedly by NORAD during the last two years was completely wrong. Yet now no one at NORAD is willing to comment on their own timeline!

When the official story of 9/11 can be changed repeatedly without anyone ever being held accountable, we have no right to ever again expect honest government. Please read the following story and do your part to support Sen. Dayton for highlighting the contradiction, and to encourage the media to follow up.

(See Transcript of Sen. Dayton’s remarks of July 31.)

Background: Evolution of the Official Story

From the beginning, the 9/11 investigations, official and alternative, have been about timelines: what happened, who knew and who did what, when, where and how.

Written by the government’s Kean Commission, the just-published “9/11 Commission Report” presents a timeline of air defense response that differs radically from all of the previous official stories.

Since Sept. 11 government representatives have in fact promoted a series of mutually contradictory narratives of how the nation’s air defenses responded to the unfolding attacks. Various chronologies were presented at different times by the high military command, the North American Air Defense command (NORAD), the Federal Aviation Administration, and now the Kean Commission.…

Germany & 9/11 on the Web

The events of Sept. 11 had a big impact in Germany, as they did everywhere else.

Millions of Germans took to the streets to show their solidarity with the people of New York and Washington. Germany passed its own version of the PATRIOT ACT. German forces joined the Afghanistan mission and are still heading it today.

Many building blocks of the official story and much of the evidence that causes skeptics to doubt it comes from Germany. Germany was home until 2000 to the members of the “Hamburg cell,” which allegedly provided three of the hijacking pilots. The only two prosecutions of alleged attack plotters – the Motassadeq and Mzoudi cases – were tried in Hamburg in 2002 and 2003. Both cases were voided after U.S. authorities refused to provide evidence that supposedly incriminated the two men.

German opinion about Sept. 11 began to shift as the Bush regime spited its former allies and told outrageous lies in the drive to attack Iraq. In the summer of 2003, several German books presenting alternate views of 9/11 became instant best-sellers. A poll showed that 20 percent of Germans believed the U.S. government likely had a hand in engineering the attacks.

All this served to set off a German “Summer of 9/11.” The first major international research conference of 9/11 skeptics, “UNANSWERED QUESTIONS – DEMANDING ANSWERS,” was held in Berlin on Sept. 7, 2003. Among the American and British speakers were former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and authors Michael Ruppert, Nafeez Ahmed,… Continue reading

Edmonds: FBI knew about 9/11 plot in April 2001

Open Letter To Thomas Kean, Chairman Of The 9/11 Commission, from FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds

August 1, 2004

Thomas Kean, Chairman
National Committee on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
301 7th Street, SW
Room 5125
Washington, DC 20407

Dear Chairman Kean:

It has been almost three years since the terrorist attacks on September 11; during which time we, the people, have been placed under a constant threat of terror and asked to exercise vigilance in our daily lives. Your commission, the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, was created by law to investigate ‘facts and circumstances related to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001′ and to ‘provide recommendations to safeguard against future acts of terrorism’, and has now issued its ‘9/11 Commission Report’. You are now asking us to pledge our support for this report, its recommendations, and implementation of these recommendations, with our trust and backing, our tax money, our security, and our lives.

Unfortunately, I find your report seriously flawed in its failure to address serious intelligence issues that I am aware of, which have been confirmed, and which as a witness to the commission, I made you aware of. Thus, I must assume that other serious issues that I am not aware of were in the same manner omitted from your report. These omissions cast doubt on the validity of your report and therefore on its conclusions and recommendations. Considering what is at stake, our national security, we are entitled to demand answers to unanswered questions, and to ask for clarification of issues that were ignored and/or omitted from the report.…
