FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Court exhibits state that leader Mohamed Atta took a commuter flight from Portland, Maine, to connect to AA Flight 11 out of Boston, which hit the North Tower.
The dubious images heighten the mystery of why Atta left Boston, where Flight 11 was to be hijacked, and risked the failure of his entire mission by driving to Portland September 10, staying overnight, and booking a tight connection back to Boston early September 11.
Atta’s bags, central to the story, failed to make the connection and were found in Boston’s Logan airport with incriminating evidence about the hijacking operation.
The Panel’s in-depth review shows the Portland story to be peppered with inconsistencies and revisions, placing the entire hijack theory in question.
Similarly, at Washington’s Dulles International Airport, five hijackers allegedly passed through security before flying AA Flight 77, carrying CNN correspondent Barbara Olson, into the Pentagon.
Yet no images were released from the 300+ security cameras at Dulles that morning, nor were Arabic men reported in FBI interviews of airport staff.
The 9/11 Consensus Panel’s lawyers, journalists, airline pilots and six PhD’s use a medical model employing three rounds of review and feedback to refine their evidence.
In its quest to provide credible resources to the media, the public, and future investigators, the Panel has produced 28 Consensus Points of “best evidence” regarding the official claims of 9/11 — the trigger event for the Middle East wars of the last decade. Continue reading

Approaching the 11th “Anniversary” of 9/11… What facts and evidence about 9/11 remain unreported by the media, and why? What does this have to do with what has happened to our country since that tragic day?
Jeanie Keltner and David Kimball will address these topics on Jeanie’s Access Sacramento Cable TV Show “Soapbox!” tonight, Monday, September 10, 2012 at 8 PM.
Monday, September 10, 2012 8PM — 9PM Pacific
Host: Jeanie Keltner
Guest: David Kimball

Please tune in or check it out here:
The Eighth Annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival will explore what featured speaker, professor, author, former diplomat, Peter Dale Scott has termed “deep events.” Scott defines “deep events” as those that are systematically ignored or falsified in the mainstream media and public consciousness. The Film Festival, will be held again at the historic Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave, Oakland, on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 2 pm to 11 pm, and is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.
9/11 bears the fingerprints of an audacious false flag operation, but it also fits into a long historical pattern of events designed to provoke and alter public sentiment and behavior. A range of films and film excerpts, along with speakers, will analyze multiple events, including the Oakland bombing of activist Judi Bari, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the London bombings. Speakers will include Chris Emery film producer of A Noble Lie — Oklahoma City 1995; Professors Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored; Mark Gaffney, author of Black 9/11 Money, Motive, and Technology and The 9/11 Mystery Plane And the Vanishing of America. In addition to the films specifically about 9/11, including The Toronto Hearings on 9/11 – Uncovering Ten Years of Deception, the new one hour television version of 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out, the documentary I am Fishead will premiere and cast some light on psychopaths, empathy, authority and the power of moral courage.… Continue reading
It’s eleven years since the world changing events of 11th Sept 2001, used to justify wars abroad and erosion of civil liberties at home.
Outside the NATO area, world wide opinion polls indicate a highly sceptical public attitude to the Washington account of 9/11. (3)
Last year’s 9/11 opinion poll in the UK conducted by ICM on behalf of www.reinvestigate911.org showed only 7% of respondents believe they have been told the whole story of the 9/11 attacks. (4), (5)
The media in the NATO countries have failed to look into the many unanswered questions feeding public disquiet. Recent revelations have confirmed collusion between the New York Times and intelligence agencies (6).
Meanwhile most members of the 9/11 Commission have now distanced themselves from its findings. (16)
Here are some of the unanswered questions.
Could 9/11 have been nipped in the bud by the CIA’s then secret Osama Bin Laden unit who identified at least two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers as they entered the US, or the FBI’s three field offices which were refused permission to investigate individuals connected with the attacks?
Was 9/11 really such a surprise, as claimed by the… Continue reading

Sara Weaver has forgiven the people responsible for murdering her mother Vicki and younger brother Samuel twenty years ago.
Lon Horiuchi, the FBI sniper who shot Vicki in the head while she was holding a ten-month-old infant, is still being sheltered by the Regime that employed him. If he were any part of a man, Horiuchi would make a pilgrimage to Sara’s home in Montana to express remorse for the crimes he committed against her family.
Shortly before he murdered Vicki on August 22, 1992, Horiuchi attempted to murder her husband, Randy Weaver — a man who had done nothing to harm any living soul. Acting under “rules of engagement” that were tantamount to a murder warrant, Horiuchi shot Randy in the back, attempting to kill him instantly by severing his spinal cord.
Owing to a last-second motion by Randy, the bullet hit his shoulder and exited his armpit. Randy and a visiting family friend named Kevin Harris fled back to their cabin. Vicki Weaver flung open the door and was shot in the head by Horiuchi. The same round used to murder Vicki ended up wounding Harris.
At the time Horiuchi attempted to murder him, Randy was visiting the forlorn outbuilding that sheltered the lifeless body of his only son, 14-year-old Samuel, who had been murdered the previous day by U.S. marshals preparing to ambush the Weaver family. Three of the six camouflaged marshals threw rocks to distract the Weaver family’s dogs. When Samuel and Harris went to investigate, a marshal panicked and shot one of the dogs.
After Samuel fired in the direction of the gunshots, Randy told him to return to the cabin.
“I’m coming, Dad,” shouted Samuel.
At that point, one of the marshals, in keeping with the standards of valor expected of those who serve the federal Leviathan, shot the 14-year-old in the back. Continue reading

“9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out” is getting public attention and casting doubt on the scientific validity of the U.S. government’s investigation into the WTC tragedy. PBS is the first major network to air the program.
Just days away from the 11th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy and months away from the U.S. presidential election, a game-changing 9/11 documentary is ranking number three among “most watched” documentaries on PBS and number one among “most shared.” Available for free online August 18th – September 4th, the documentary could have a significant effect on public opinion. [Update: PBS has extended viewing indefinitely.] Both the Republicans and Democrats, as equally staunch defenders of the official story, stand to be affected if the public’s suspicion of government corruption grows deeper.
An earlier report on Digital Journal found that the claims made in the documentary can be verified by reading the government reports themselves. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the government agency charged with the investigation, did not provide any data — no measurements or estimates — of the mass or energy that would be required to bring down the buildings in about ten seconds. Normally a scientific report would present all the data that is used to construct a theory. The omission of data is a red flag to anyone familiar with scientific procedure. It appears that the investigators may have intentionally produced reports that the scientific community would reject.… Continue reading
Five days of exciting and informative events are planned across the country for the 9/11 anniversary this year, beginning in New York City on September 8 and culminating at the University of Maryland on September 12.
In addition, there will be 9/11 events happening throughout the country, including local screenings of the new 1-hour version of our groundbreaking documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, which has just been uploaded to YouTube!
One of these local screenings will be at the annual 9/11 Truth film festival in Oakland, CA, organized by NCA911Truth.
The University of Maryland seems dedicated to also enlighten their academic community about what really caused the destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7, as they are bringing in AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA to speak to 200 students on Sept 12. See below for more details.
These street actions, film festivals, and 9/11 symposiums will bring AE911Truth together with 9/11 experts, government whistleblowers, influential activists and media sources that are calling for a new 9/11 investigation. Join us and tell your friends!
New York City, September 8-11
The events in New York City begin with street actions at Ground Zero on September 8, where activists will distribute DVDs, 9/11 Investigator newspapers, WTC evidence cards, and other 9/11 Truth materials to the public. See GroundZero911.com for details.
On September 9, Gage will be one of the featured speakers, along with Experts Speak Out psychologist Robert Griffin, CIA whistleblower Susan Lindauer, investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, broadcast journalist Joe Calhoun, and activist Frank Morales, for How the World Changed After 9/11: A Symposium of Critical Thinkers, the third annual 9/11 Truth conference in New York City.
AE911Truth will be delivering a new presentation at this event called Finding the Hero Within: Lessons from a 9/11 Whistleblower. It will accent the character development of the new “emerging patriot” who is called upon to relentlessly pursue and speak the truth about 9/11.
“We are very excited to give the new talk that we will soon be bringing to students around the country,” Gage said. “Thanks to a few of our gracious donors, campus activities directors from coast to coast will see the 10-minute preview of this new presentation at regional college speaking conferences this fall, and we anticipate that they will decide to bring our newly packaged and vital message to their universities.”
Gage we will also be introducing and screening our 15-minute documentary “Solving the Mystery” with Ed Asner starring in the power-packed short about World Trade Center 7. This will occur at yet another unique 3-day New York event in the history of 9/11 events, “Pause / Press Play” at the Kraft Center. Other film makers and speakers such as Penny Little, creator of “9/11 Dust: A Healing Journey”. The event is all about healing from the tragic events of 9/11. To that end we will be also screening the trailer of our new documentary 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, which will be pre-viewed and discussed in the topic “We Need the Truth in Order to Heal” on 9/10/12 at 4pm. We will be emphasizing what can be done in order to promote long-lasting healing with this critical information.
New York City will also host the 1st annual Off the Radar Film Festival, which runs from September 8-11 and culminates on the anniversary with a screening of the Final Edition of our Experts Speak Out at the Walker Stage. Gage will introduce the film and answer questions from the audience following the showing of the film, as he has throughout the recent 32-City World Premiere Tour of Experts Speak Out.

Journal of 9/11 Studies
For the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Journal of 9/11 Studies would like to share a series of letters from thoughtful people who have reflected on the tragic events of that day. Five letters were published today, from the following individuals.
Lorie Van Auken is a founding member of the 9/11 Family Steering Committee. Without her dedication there would never have been a 9/11 Commission investigation.
Gregg Fishman is Secretary of the World Trade Center Rescuers Foundation. Like others he represents, Gregg risked his life and health in an attempt to rescue and recover victims following the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings.
Father Frank Morales is an Episcopal priest, activist, and author from New York City. He was present at Ground Zero shortly after the 9/11 events, offering prayers for the victims and support for the first responders.
David Johnson is Professor Emeritus of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Johnson served as a panelist at the Toronto Hearings on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has investigated the events of September 11, 2001 and his writings on that and other subjects have attracted a worldwide following.
A similar number of letters from other contributors will be published later this week. We hope that the words and… Continue reading

New 9/11 Timeline Entries: Hijacking Exercises, Air Force One’s Movements, Laura Bush on Sept. 11, and More
History Commons is only halfway towards its summer fundraising goal. Please contribute generously to help the History Commons stay alive and functioning.
A large number of entries have been added to the Complete 9/11 Timeline at History Commons, most of which provide new details about the events of the day of September 11, 2001.
Other entries are being posted in the US Civil Liberties project on campaign finance, voting laws, and indefinite detentions.
New 9/11 Entries
One new timeline entry describes a training exercise based on the scenario of a possible terrorist attack that was run on the morning of September 11 by the US Coast Guard in Tampa Bay, Florida, quite close to Sarasota, where the president was at the time. Another entry deals with a meeting scheduled to take place at the Pentagon that morning, regarding a planned “disaster exercise” at the nearby Navy Annex building.
An entry reveals that a number of FBI agents had, for reasons that are unknown, already arrived at the Navy Annex when the Pentagon was hit. Later on, the Navy set up a new command center at the Navy Annex, after its original command center was destroyed in the Pentagon attack.

Recently, I wrote a petition for people to sign called a “Statement For 9/11 Justice.” (Review and sign here.)
As of right now, there are 278 signatures. Not bad considering it was posted 5 days ago. Some of the people that have signed it that you may have heard of are 9/11 Family Member Lorie Van Auken, 9/11 Family Member Donna Marsh O’Connor, 9/11 First Responder Reggie Cervantes, 9/11 Whistleblowers Coleen Rowley and Sibel Edmonds, Cindy Sheehan, Ray McGovern, Dahlia Wasfi, John Judge, Daniel Sunjata, and journalists Pepe Escobar, William Rivers Pitt, and Jeremy R. Hammond.
A big thank you to them for lending their names to this statement.
The reason I wrote this statement was because I believe it is imperative that one like it exists. I believe we need to collectively put our feet down on this issue. Our media and our politicians will not tell the people the truth, so it is up to us to do so. The killing and the dying needs to stop, and the loss of our civil liberties needs to stop. The world needs to know there is no justification for any of it.
I am hoping this statement goes viral. I am hoping that millions sign it. Can you imagine how powerful a statement that would be? I am hoping that people still care enough to do so.

Very interesting interview with Bill Bergman who worked at the Chicago Federal Reserve for over 13 years as an economist and financial markets policy analyst.
As with many others in a wide range of fields, when he started asking questions his employment position was no longer needed.
Here is the interview: (The interview begins at 2:58, ends 9:57)
Bill Bergman-a former Federal Reserve (Chicago branch) economist and policy analyst, who has raised concerns about unusual currency transactions pre- 9-11—-including billions in one hundred dollar bills, is the guest this week on the Robert Wenzel Show.
Bergman worked at the Chicago Federal Reserve for over 13 years as an economist and financial markets policy analyst, until he started asking questions about unusual currency movements before 9-11. On the show we talk about what happened to him, after he started his investigation.
We also talk about how the Fed’s Biege Book is assembled, the trillion plus dollars sitting at the Fed as excess reserves, the LIBOR “scandal,” Warren Buffet and much more.
Bill Bergman joins us to discuss compelling financial irregularities and cases involving pre-9/11 money transfers, suspicious activity reporting, and informed securities trading, all of which remain uninvestigated and unanswered to date. This is the latest instalment in the Boiling Frogs interview series, co-hosted with Sibel… Continue reading

Since the first national security letter statute was passed in 1986, the FBI has issued hundreds of thousands of such letters seeking private telecommunications and financial records of Americans without any prior approval from courts. Indeed, for the period between 2003 and 2006 alone, almost 200,000 requests for private customer information were sought pursuant to various NSL statutes. Prior to 2011, the constitutionality of this legal authority to investigate the records of Americans without court oversight had been challenged in court — as far as we know — exactly one time. EFF is today releasing FBI-redacted briefing from a major new ongoing case in which it is challenging one of the NSL statutes on behalf of a telecommunications company that received an NSL in 2011. Not only does this briefing show that the Department of Justice continues to strongly protect the FBI’s NSL authority, it highlights a startlingly aggressive new tactic used by the Department of Justice: suing NSL recipients who challenge the FBI’s authority, arguing that court challenges to such authority themselves amount to breaking the law.
National security letter statutes — five in all — are controversial laws that allow the FBI to easily bypass courts and issue administrative letters on their own authority to telecommunications companies and financial institutions demanding information about their customers. The NSL statutes permit the FBI to permanently gag service providers from revealing the fact that the demand was made, preventing them from… Continue reading

President Obama has usurped all available forms of communication for use and discretion of the US government. Under an Executive Order (June 6, 2012) entitled Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions, Obama has enabled the executive branch to control communications “under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience.” (For full text of the Executive Order, seen Annex below).
Radio and wired communications systems “of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications policies, programs, and capabilities.”
Cellular phone corporations like Sprint owned Boost Mobile have released messages to their customers concerning the US government’s allocation of their phone communications at the whim of the President. In a text message to customers, Boost Mobile said that: “. . . you can receive national and local emergency alerts directly on your phone.”
Back in 2011, Hillary Clinton admitted that the US government, via the mainstream media, is losing their “information war” with the American public. As alternative media becomes more prevalent, the propaganda must be taken up a notch in order to keep the masses onboard with the agendas of the US government.
Danny Schechter, filmmaker and investigative journalist, explains that MSM cannot compete with the alternative media. Schechter says that “America feels on the defensive because it can no longer” monopolize the thoughts of citizens domestically and abroad. Since the US government thinks “its point of view is the only point of view” these new news outlets are “extremely damaging” to the US continual purveyance of propaganda.
The Presidential Alert was announced in August of 2011, wherein the Commissioners for the FCC required that television, radio stations and cable systems (including satellites) will redirect broadcasting if the President wants to “alert Americans of impending danger”. Continue reading

Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox
Recently, I have started to talk to the “progressives” in this country about addressing the lies and cover-ups of 9/11.
In a talk I gave in Fresno recently, I said that “progressives” were afraid of losing their “pulpits” if they address the 9/11 issue.
I’m sorry, but this selfish reason is the best explanation I can think of as to why they don’t (or, I could say that they are paid shills for the CIA, etc… but I’m not a “Conspiracy Theorist”). The lies and cover-ups of 9/11 are so glaringly obvious that when someone who supposedly stands for truth, justice, and accountability doesn’t address them, I have to ask why.
As I said in my talk, the media has worked very hard to make anyone that questions the official account of 9/11 the equivalent of a dog torturer or a baby killer. Losing one’s “pulpit” because of being painted with the “9/11 Truth Brush” is the best explanation I can think of.
Years ago (before the media had a chance to have its anti-9/11 Truth campaign), MANY “progressives” were supportive of the cause for 9/11 Justice. People like Howard Zinn (RIP), Michael Badnarik, Medea Benjamin, David Cobb, Daniel Ellsberg, Janeane Garofalo, Stan Goff, Thom Hartmann, Rob Kall, Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader, and many others. This is no longer the case (with few exceptions for sure).
I was told today that “Social justice, anti war, environment, political reform = 1 movement. (And all doomed to fail, until everyone involved learns that fact.)” I think this person is right.

We have a new format at the Journal of 9/11 Studies. As before, there are over 60 peer-reviewed articles, nearly 70 letters, and a section for those just beginning to look into the unanswered question of 9/11.
There are two new entries in the letter section.
The first is a detailed paper by Dr. Frank Legge entitled The 9/11 Attack on the Pentagon: the Search for Consensus.
The second is a letter written last year by the board of directors of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, addressed to Sir Paul Nurse of the Royal Society of London.
Unfortunately, Sir Paul and the Royal Society could not be troubled to respond. If you’re wondering why, the Society’s contact page is at this link.
The journal has also signed an agreement with a major distributor of academic content. As a result, the articles and letters in the Journal of 9/11 Studies will begin to see a wider audience.
