Five years ago tomorrow the 9/11 Visibility Project began, in Kansas City and
Seattle, holding weekly vigils asking America to support the 9/11 Families in
their efforts to demand an investigation of the events of 9/11. For the next
18 months, Kansas City was in the streets every single weekend with signs, flyers,
outrage, and courage as we watched the families’ success in forcing the creation
of the Commission turn to deception upon deception.…
Source: Reuters PRISTINA, Nov 22 (Reuters) – Germany declined to comment on Saturday on reports that three Germans arrested on suspicion of throwing explosives at an EU office in Kosovo were intelligence officers.
The explosive charge was thrown on Nov. 14 at the International Civilian Office (ICO), the office of EU Special Representative Pieter Feith, who oversees Kosovo’s governance, but caused only minor damage. The men were detained on Thursday.
A spokesman for the German foreign ministry in Berlin confirmed that three Germans had been arrested, but declined to make any further comment as an investigation was under way.…

Within hours of the attacks of 9/11 the Bush Administration decided to treat the attacks as part of a worldwide war–a new kind of war that would free the Administration to re-write the rules.…

Pick of the Week” is Dr. David Ray Griffin’s newly released The
New Pearl Harbor Revisited (Interlink/Olive Branch press, 2008).

Griffin “addresses many points in exhaustive detail, from the physical
impossibility of the official explanation of the towers’ collapse to
the Commission’s failure to scrutinize the administration to the NIST’s
contradiction of its own scientists to the scads of eyewitness and scientific
testimony in direct opposition to official claims.

U.S. policy is not about one individual, and no matter how much faith people place in President-elect Barack Obama, the policies he enacts will be fruit of a tree with many roots. Among them: his personal politics and views, the disastrous realities his administration will inherit, and, of course, unpredictable future crises. But the best immediate indicator of what an Obama administration might look like can be found in the people he surrounds himself with and who he appoints to his Cabinet.…

A federal judge issued the Bush administration a sharp setback on Thursday, ruling that five Algerian men have been held unlawfully at the Guantánamo Bay detention camp for nearly seven years and ordering their release.
It was the first hearing on the government’s evidence for holding detainees at Guantánamo. The judge, Richard J. Leon of Federal District Court in Washington, said the government’s secret evidence in the case had been weak: what he described as “a classified document from an unnamed source” for its central claim against the men, with little way to measure credibility.…Continue reading

Excerpts from Scott Horton’s Justice After Bush: Prosecuting An Outlaw Administration in Harper’s Magazine.
This administration did more than commit crimes. It waged war against the law itself. It transformed the Justice Department into a vehicle for voter suppression, and it also summarily dismissed the U.S. attorneys who attempted to investigate its wrongdoing. It issued wartime contracts to substandard vendors with inside connections, and it also defunded efforts to police their performance.…Continue reading

Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) took one of the first steps in holding the Bush Administration accountable when he introduced House Resolution 1531 on Thursday.
The official title of HR 1531, which was introduced to the House Judiciary Committee, is “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the President of the United States should not issue pardons to senior members of his administration during the final 90 days of his term of office.”
The resolution notes, “President George W.…

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.…

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.…

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.…

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.
