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.

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."

Crossing the Rubicon: Simplifying the case against Dick Cheney

Crossing the Rubicon makes the case for official complicity within the U.S. government and names Dick Cheney as the prime suspect in the crimes of 9/11.  There are 3 major points made within this book that are crucial to proving Cheney's guilt:

Means - Dick Cheney and the Secret Service

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.

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.

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.

Five minutes before the Pentagon was hit on September 11, 2001, a training exercise being run by a US intelligence agency just over 20 miles from the Pentagon was set to include the scenario of a small private jet plane crashing into a building. It is unclear whether the scenario was played out, or if the exercise had been called off by that time.

Does Science Lie?

As we approach the tenth anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, we must weigh our collective need for maintaining and promoting what is believed to be "safe" against what is in fact true.

A PhD in physics and former student of physics teacher David Chandler, when showed the compelling research David has put together on the physical improbability of the official story of the building collapses of the Three World Trade buildings on September 11 said, "I understand and accept your data as scientifically accurate and flawless, yet I don't believe it".

Is Anyone Telling Us the Truth?

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

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 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.

Evidence for Informed Trading on the Attacks of September 11

Evidence for Informed Trading on the Attacks of September 11

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.

Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his wife Anoud left three cars at their luxurious home in a gated community in Sarasota, Florida -- one of them new -- and flew to Saudi Arabia in August 2001.

Rewarding Incompetence

We strongly agree with President Bush's decision to move Condoleezza Rice out of her position as National Security Advisor. Ms. Rice's statement from her May 16, 2002 press briefing:

"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. Condoleezza Rice was the top National Security official with President Bush at the July 2001 G-8 summit in Genoa. This was where "U.S. officials were warned that Islamic terrorists might attempt to crash an airliner into the summit ..."

The NIST WTC 7 Report:  Bush Science reaches its peak

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."

George W.

The company was backed by an investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corp., also linked for years to the Bush family.

The security company, formerly named Securacom and now named Stratesec, is in Sterling, Va.. Its CEO, Barry McDaniel, said the company had a "completion contract" to handle some of the security at the World Trade Center "up to the day the buildings fell down."

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.

Will Bush’s midnight rules be reversible?

By Joaquin Sapien
ProPublica
November 19, 2008

Whether it’s relaxing pollution control standards for power plants or allowing loaded weapons into national parks, the Bush Administration is scrambling to approve or change as many federal rules as it can before it hands off power to President-elect Barack Obama. This surge of “midnight regulations” presents a thorny question for the next administration: What can it do to void rules it thinks should be undone?

An Obama spokesman told ProPublica that the transition team can’t comment on the new administration’s strategy yet. However, John Podesta, a leading member of the transition team, has said Obama will use his “executive authority without waiting for congressional action” to reverse many of Bush’s policies.

But that authority has its limits.

While executive orders and rules that are not yet in effect can swiftly be reversed or altered by Obama’s appointees or his own executive orders, rules that go into effect before he takes office will be extremely difficult to undo. Rescinding a rule would require the new administration to re-start the rule-making process, which can take years and prompt legal challenges. Another strategy that has been talked about lately — getting Congress to disapprove the rules through the Congressional Review Act — carries political risks and has been used only once before.

“The problem with what the Bush administration is doing is that these rules are extremely cumbersome to adopt, and they are every bit as cumbersome to undo,” said David Vladeck, an administrative law… Continue reading

EDWARD ASNER

October 6, 2008

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to thank Richard Gage, AIA and Architects and Engineers for 9/11
Truth for presenting the scientific facts behind the unprecedented destruction
of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7. AE911Truth presents solid
research that contradicts the official story of the building’s destruction with
the overwhelming evidence of explosive controlled demolition.

An accurate understanding of history is required to make good decisions in
the future. Over and over again, history has shown that the first public perceptions
of historical events are not always correct. I, along with millions of others,
have serious questions about our country’s recent history about 9/11.

I have signed the AE911Truth.org petition calling for an unbiased investigation
of the “collapses” of these three high-rise buildings. I encourage
everyone to do the same, and also become a Sustaining Member of Architects and
Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Sincerely,

/s/

Olympia, WA to host David Ray Griffin Dec. 3

David Ray Griffin on 9/11

The Building Revolution by Increasing Community Knowledge (BRICK), student organization
from SPSCC is proud to announce a free presentation by David Ray Griffin at
the Capitol Theater, Dec 3rd at 7pm. His talk entitled “The New Pearl
Harbor Revisited: 9/11, The Cover-up and the Expos&eacute,” will discuss
new evidence that has come to light regarding 9/11 since the 2004 publication
of his now classic book “The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About
the Bush Administration and 9-11.”

David Ray Griffin is a retired professor of philosophy of religion and theology
who taught for more than 30 years at the Claremont School of Theology in California.
He has written over 30 books, many of which deal with the 9/11 attacks and the
implausibility of the Government’s explanation of how they happened. Howard
Zinn had this to say about him “Griffin’s status as a renowned theologian
and his systematic approach to the documented evidence lend this work unique
importance and authority. Although still shunned by the mainstream media, his
book has already encouraged many thousands to debate the case for possible government
complicity and at the very least to demand a full, transparent and truly independent
public inquiry.”

Last Word Books will have available copies of Griffin’s books and DVDs
for sale and signing.

Surviving a financial panic — lessons from the past

October 13, 2008
by Philip Brewer
Wisebread.com

Financial panics used to be quite ordinary. In the century or two prior to the great depression, there was a panic every 15 or 20 years. Since the great depression we haven’t had a classic financial panic, until now. There’s a thing or two that we can learn from panics past to help us survive the current one.

To begin with, there’s a reason why we haven’t had financial panics for the past 75 years–fiat currency.

Panics and gold

Panics used to begin when people decided to get their hands on actual, physical gold. That could happen for a lot of different reasons. Often it was because there had been inflation–banks issuing bank notes far in excess of the gold they had on deposit–and people decided that they didn’t trust their bank. Sometimes, though, it happened without any particular malpractice by the banks, simply because there was a demand for gold someplace else–an economic boom in Europe or South America could drain gold from the United States or vice versa.

Since issuing banknotes was literally printing money, the temptation to go overboard was immense, and individual banks that did so used to collapse all the time. A prudent bank, though, could be modestly profitable and a great boon to its community, but in a panic, even prudent banks would fail. (You could, in theory, create a panic-proof bank that held enough gold to pay off every banknote, but it would be a money-losing… Continue reading

Personally, I would have loved to have a larger audience, but the attendance of 165, including quite a few architects and engineers, I’m not complaining. Not surprisingly, the mainstream media excelled in not showing up.

Richard Gage’s lecture was supported with a very illustrative PowerPoint presentation, filled with revealing video material and a series of very convincing scientific explanations.

At the onset of his presentation, Gage took a poll, wondering how many people still believed in the official version of the events as portrayed by the US governement. About 20 hands went up. To the question how many people had doubts, a lot more hands went skyward.

When asked how many were convinced the destruction of the three buildings was due to ‘explosive controlled demolition’, the majority of the hands went up, proving we were dealing with an already pretty well informed audience.

After the poll, Gage started his explanation. He did so in a soft spoken, unbiased and unpartisan way. He is obviously a professional and never felt the need to dramatize: the facts speak for themselves. Gage did an excellent job uncovering the problems with the official explanation in a scientific way. No two ways about it!

Gage proved that fire (being an organic process) was unable to produce all of the characteristics that we saw, such as the straight-down, symmetrical collapse outside the footprint, the lateral ejection of structural steel up to 600 feet and the chemical evidence of… Continue reading

9/11 Speakers hit Mainstream Media

November 17, 2008

In the last couple of weeks, two of our well-known speakers have been broadcast on mainstream media. Thanks to both of you for your ongoing persistence!

Richard Gage, who has been presenting AE911Truth.org to Europeans, was on national television in Spain. We received this note from Diana Castillo:

Thanks to Richard Gage’s conference here in Madrid’s Colegio Oficial de Arquitectura, on Nov 7th, this is the first time that 911 truth has been shown on mainstream media here in Spain. The conference was packed and the Colegio, which is the official “Guild” for architects here in Spain, has requested several copies of the video conference. This is the recording of the news item shown at midday on the 8th of November which was seen nation wide, with English subtitles: Google Video.

You can see details of the rest of Gage’s European Tour at AE911Truth.org, here.

David Ray Griffin was interviewed by Jan Mickelson, of WHO-AM radio in Des Moines. Bravo to James Hufferd, Adel, IA 911truth group leader, who facilitated this opportunity. Listen to the podcast here: mickelson.libsyn.com (

Veterans Occupy National Archives – AGAIN!

Video:

November 15, 2008
Veterans For Peace

On Saturday, November 15, at 8:00 am, at the National Archives Building on
Connecticut Ave., eight military veterans and a military mother climbed a 9-foot
retaining fence and occupied a ninety-foot high scaffolding to raise two 450
square foot banners stating, “DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. ARREST BUSH AND
CHENEY: WAR CRIMINALS!” and “WE WILL NOT BE SILENT.” The same
message will also be displayed at demonstrations in the Los Angeles area on
Saturday.

Members of Veterans for Peace (VFP) chose the Archives for their nonviolent
protest because it is symbolic of their military oath to “defend the Constitution
of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” In September
they occupied the Archives for 24 hours, and plan to stay longer this time.

“The offenses of Bush, Cheney, and their accomplices are appalling,”
said Kim Carlyle, a VFP member and Army veteran. “Their misdeeds have killed
or maimed more than a million people – American soldiers, innocent civilian
children, women, and men. They have displaced almost five million people, with
millions seeking refuge in other countries. Their total disregard for international
agreements has severely tarnished the reputation of America in the world. Their
unlawful wars have squandered billions of dollars that could have bolstered
a troubled economy.”

The veterans are demanding Bush administration be tried for war crimes, crimes
against humanity, and crimes against peace; asking the media to clearly inform
the public of the administration’s crimes; and encouraging citizens to take
similar nonviolent actions.…

Richard Gage, AIA, AE911truth.org in Paris

From Arno Mansouri in Paris, where Richard Gage, AIA spoke on Thursday night,
November 13, 2008

There
were 242 people attending the presentation (which was slightly above the number
of seats of the venue) on Thursday the 13th of November: a full house indeed
!

We actually had to refuse some people even though we did put a notice on our
site stating that it was fully booked, and asking people NOT to come if they
had not made reservations already — do note that we probably could have had
about twice as many people if we have had the adequate hall (we had to settle
for this movie house, a larger venue was way too much money for our finances,
unfortunately) and therefore, we had to cease advertising the presentation a
few days before it was held…

We then decided to put the emphasis on getting the info to local (French)
professional architects & engineers, and there were 42 architects and 41
engineers present that night.

Hopefully, a fair amount of the above mentioned professionals will meet up
and create a group of their own, in connection with both A&E and ReOpen911.info

We are going to see to that; it is also just as important that these professionals
pass the information they received to their friends and colleagues, in every
country M. Gage visits.

Everything went fine, as these figures show:

Believers of the Official Conspiracy Theory:
Before the presentation: 13
After the presentation: 1

People unsure:
Before: 62… Continue reading

In September 2006, Michele Little (not pictured), Christina Kminek (L) and
Donna Marsh O’Connor (R) – three relatives of 9/11 victims – held a press conference
to demand further investigation into the September 11 attacks. (Photo: Alex

This is a memoir of sorts, the kind that many of us in America are telling
days after the election of Barack Obama, who is soon, we all hope soon enough,
to be the 44th president of the United States of America. We’re not used to
this of late, this being the emergence of our stories, our narratives, each
one jubilant, provoked to the page and the air waves by our tears, for many
of us our tears of joy and relief, tears of disbelief. We, many of us, have
awakened from a nightmare. And that nightmare, for each of us, is different.

For me, the nightmare only partly ends. I’ve told this story many times before.
On 9/11/2001, in many ways the counter narrative to 11/4/2008, I lost my daughter
– my baby girl and my first child – along with the broken promise of a first
grandchild as Vanessa ran from the falling towers of the World Trade Center.
For many who have read my essays written in the years following the attacks,
this is an old story. I’ve said many times in many different… Continue reading

9/11 Film at Chicago Film Festival

Festival is serious about Poland’s booming cinema

November 9, 2008
By Bill Stamets

Of the city’s festivals with a national focus, the Polish Film Festival in
America might be the most serious about cinema. Just look at the credits for
the 76 features, documentaries and shorts in this year’s online schedule. For
the cinephile, this 20-year-old event not only lists the director of each film,
but also names the screenwriter, cinematographer, editor, art director and composer.

“The Polish film industry is blossoming right now,” says Christopher
Kamyszew, the festival’s founder and honorary chairman. “More films
are being produced and more have the ambition to do well in the local movie
theater in Poland.” That translates into more comedies. Kamyszew is
bringing over “Lejdis,” Poland’s hit comedy of the year.

20th POLISH FILM FESTIVAL IN AMERICA
When: Through Nov. 23
Where: Society for Arts’ Gallery Theatre (1112 N. Milwaukee), Copernicus
Center (5216 W. Lawrence), Facets Cinematheque (1517 W. Fullerton), Beverly
Arts Center (2407 W. 111th St.) and the Skokie Theatre (7924 Lincoln, Skokie)
Tickets: $13 features; $10 documentary programs. Discounts for students
and seniors, and for retrospective and sidebar screenings. $50 festival
pass for one person for five screenings (except opening, closing and special
screenings). Available at www.pf famerica.com, Polish bookstores and six
Palomar travel agency offices.
Phone: (773) 486-9612

More than 50 directors, producers and actors will fly in to speak at screenings.

Attorney General contender carries 9/11 related baggage

Monday’s New York Times reported that former Deputy A.G. and 9/11
Commissioner Jamie Gorelick was a candidate for Attorney General in the new
Obama Administration. Five-time Emmy winning investigative reporter Peter Lance
details a shocking, but little known story about Gorelick involving the loss
of a key al Qaeda operative. This is an excerpt from his 2006 HarperCollins
book TRIPLE CROSS soon to be published in trade paperback.

On December 16th, 1994, agents in the FBI’s San Francisco office made
an extraordinary seizure. Mohammed Jamal Khalifa (MJK) Osama bin Laden’s
brother-in-law and former roommate, was captured at a Holiday Inn in Morgan
Hill, California. If this arrest had been fully investigated by the FBI and
the Justice Department, it might have led to the seizure of 9/11 “mastermind”
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, and stopped “planes as missiles” plot dead
in its tracks. But what followed was series of missteps and bad decisions at
the highest levels of the State and Justice departments that had a catastrophic
impact on America’s ability to cut short bin Laden’s jihad against
America.

At the center of the decision making at the time, was Deputy Attorney General
Jamie Gorelick.

KHALIFA’S EXTRADITION BACKED BY TWO TOP FEDS

Even if the Feds were savvy enough to see the value in questioning him, however,
they never got the chance. On January 5, 1995, a decision was made by Secretary
of State Warren Christopher and supported by Deputy A.G. Gorelick, that arguably
ranks as one of the most profound intelligence errors committed by any U.S.…

Bush Spy Revelations Anticipated When Obama Is Sworn In

Privacy Advocates Expect Whistleblowers to Share Warrantless Wiretap Info After
Inauguration Day

By RYAN SINGEL
Nov. 11, 2008

When Barack Obama takes the oath of office on January 20, Americans won’t just
get a new president; they might finally learn the full extent of George W. Bush’s
warrantless domestic wiretapping.

Since The New York Times first revealed in 2005 that the NSA was eavesdropping
on citizens’ overseas phone calls and e-mail, few additional details about the
massive "Terrorist Surveillance Program" have emerged. That’s because
the Bush administration has stonewalled, misled and denied documents to Congress,
and subpoenaed the phone records of the investigative reporters.

Now privacy advocates are hopeful that President Obama will be more forthcoming
with information. But for the quickest and most honest account of Bush’s illegal
policies, they say don’t look to the incoming president. Watch instead for the
hidden army of would-be whistle-blowers who’ve been waiting for Inauguration
Day to open the spigot on the truth.

"I’d bet there are a lot of career employees in the intelligence agencies
who’ll be glad to see Obama take the oath so they can finally speak out against
all this illegal spying and get back to their real mission," says Caroline
Fredrickson, the ACLU’s Washington D.C. legislative director.

New Yorker investigative reporter Seymour Hersh already has a slew of sources
waiting to spill the Bush administration’s darkest secrets, he said in an interview
last month. "You cannot believe how many people have told me to call them
on January… Continue reading

Statement on the election of Barack Obama as it regards the 9/11 Truth Movement

From Donna Marsh O’Connor

First let me say, after years of skepticism re the Democratic Party, I am a Progressive Democrat and so my comments reflect that. Someday perhaps someone more powerful than I will be able to dismantle the two party system, and make more genuine choice possible in this country. Right now, there are two parties. For eight years George W. Bush and Dick Cheney impostered as Republicans. I have said before and will say again, they would not have fit into my party and of this I am proud. They led a band of rogues that brought this country to the brink of absolute despotism. Let the Republicans worry about that mess. I remember telling my students long ago, I didn’t vote for Bill Clinton for what he would do, I voted for Bill Clinton for what he said, for the values he espoused, for the way his insistence on social justice resonated. After his election, his actions were, indeed, another matter.

The good news: Barack Obama seems to be a decent man, tough enough to steer this nation in the left direction, confident enough to know he will succeed, smart enough to know that the powerful right still has the means to inflict great pain and re-enter greater and stronger. His election has elated many, particularly me, for a whole host of reasons, but for our purposes the following two:

The reign of Bush/Cheney/Rove (given a peaceful transition) is over.

Though I don’t believe that this… Continue reading

Reflections and Hope on Veterans Day

Image of veterans at DNC in support of Obamafrom IVAW.org
November 11, 2008

While it is fitting that our nation reserves a special day to honor the sacrifice and commitment of our warriors, it also serves to highlight how we, as a country, have fallen short of caring for our veterans, reintegrating them back into our communities, and demanding that our military be used responsibly and only as a last resort. Over 1.7 million men and women of the U.S. military have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and many of them now struggle to cope with physical and emotional injuries, with family relationships strained because of prolonged separation, and with finding employment during an economic recession.

Members of Iraq Veterans Against the War know that in order to truly honor our veterans, we must listen to them, not just on Veterans Day, but on the other 364 days as well. It is for each other, our military brothers and sisters, and for our country that IVAW works every day to share our experiences, to challenge the predominant narrative of war as heroic and glorious, and to expose people to the brutal reality and true human costs of modern warfare.

Over the past four and a half years, IVAW has been working to transform our military experiences into a force for positive change. Be it at Winter Soldier this past March, Winter Soldier on the Hill in May, or at regional Winter Soldier events in Rochester, NY, Seattle, WA, Madison, WI, and others, IVAW has been dedicated to making… Continue reading

Winter Soldier: Iraq & Afghanistan: Another way you can honor our veterans today is by listening to the Winter Soldier Hearings.

Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan featured testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground. This four-day event brought together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan – and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists gave context to the testimony. These panels covered everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans’ health benefits and support. Learn more about these ongoing hearings and find links here.

9/11: More than meets the eye

Discussion of the very real doubts over the World Trade Center attacks was
conspicuously absent from the US presidential race. But America’s international
image will always be tainted as long as the uncertainty remains

by Richard Falk
Sunday 09 November 2008
The
Journal Issue 13

Every so often attention is called anew to the doubts surrounding the true
character of the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Recently, the report of
the collapse of Building 7 represented such an occasion. Any close student of
9/11 is aware of the many serious discrepancies between the official version
of what took place and the actual happenings on that fateful day in 2001. David
Ray Griffin and others have analyzed and assessed these discrepancies in such
an objective and compelling fashion that only wilful ignorance can maintain
that the 9/11 narrative should be treated as a closed book, and that the public
should move on to address the problems of the day.

To accept such a view is to acquiesce in what can be described at best as governmental
evasiveness and irresponsibility, a resolve to leave the discrepancies unexplained.
It is not paranoid under such circumstances to assume that the established elites
of the American governmental structure have something to hide, and much to explain.
What has not been established by the “9/11 Truth Movement” is a
convincing counter-narrative — that is, an alternate version of the events
that clears up to what degree, if at all, the attacks resulted from incompetence,
deliberate inaction,… Continue reading
