Preparing the Battlefield

The Bush Administration steps up its secret moves against Iran.
by Seymour M. Hersh
July 7, 2008

Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, according to current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources. These operations, for which the President sought up to four hundred million dollars, were described in a Presidential Finding signed by Bush, and are designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership.…

9/11, Deep State Violence, and the Hope of Internet Politics

Peter Dale Scott

The Deep State and 9/11

The unthinkable — that elements inside the state would conspire with criminals to kill innocent civilians — has become not only thinkable but commonplace in the last century. A seminal example was in French Algeria, where dissident elements of the French armed forces, resisting General de Gaulle’s plans for Algerian independence, organized as the Secret Army Organization and bombed civilians indiscriminately, with targets including hospitals and schools. 1 Critics like Alexander Litvinenko, who was subsequently murdered in London in November 2006, have charged that the 1999 bombings of apartment buildings around Moscow, attributed to Chechen separatists, were in fact the work of the Russian secret service (FSB).…

The New England 9/11 Symposium: Recap (Updated 5/26)

This story has now been updated with new information from Symposium organizers.

The New England 9/11 Symposium, held this past Saturday (5/17/08) in Keene, NH, was a tremendous success. We had a great turn out and received local and, of course, independent media coverage.

First, the morning began at 9:45 a.m. with Bob McIlvaine’s heartfelt speech, which is a reminder that, as Jon Gold put it, what we feel is nothing compared to what family members like McIlvaine feel.…

Down the Osama Rabbit Hole and Into the War on Terror Wonderland

By Kristina Borjesson

Here we go again. President Bush goes to Israel. He talks to the Israeli Knesset about standing “together against terror and extremism.” He cites the example of Osama bin Laden teaching that “the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties.” The next day, yet another unauthenticated bin Laden tape surfaces. “In a tape marking Israel’s 60th anniversary,” reported the BBC, “the speaker pledged to continue fighting the Israelis and not give up a ‘single inch of Palestine.’” Once again, the lead was followed by what has now become the standard second line, “The tape’s authenticity could not be verified.” Once again, the timing is interesting.…

9/11 Victim Family Members Raise Questions Media Still Fail to Ask

For Immediate Release:

Hundreds of victim family members have been demanding answers to questions about the deaths of loved ones ever since the horrific events of September 11, 2001 – to no avail. Dozens of witnesses who offered to testify to the 9/11 Commission were ignored; many others found their testimony omitted. According to a group of Keene State College students, without a clear accounting of the facts, no reform can be effective in protecting national security.…

FEMA To Help Run 8-Day Disaster & Terror Drill

Editor’s Note:
We’ve thought long and hard about whether to post information about this drill, which we learned of a couple weeks ago. On the one hand, we don’t want to be Chicken Littles (and there are many out there sounding the ‘world is ending’ alarm weekly). On the other hand, we do want to relay information to our readers that is informative, educational, and useful. So we’re posting this article re. a drill currently underway, as another opportunity for us to participate in our own lives, thus promoting restoration of our Republic.…

By Haaretz Service and Reuters

Benjamin Netanyahu

The Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv on Wednesday reported that Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu told an audience at Bar Ilan university that the September 11, 2001 terror attacks had been beneficial for Israel.

“We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” Ma’ariv quoted the former prime minister as saying. He reportedly added that these events “swung American public opinion in our favor.”

Netanyahu reportedly made the comments during a conference at Bar-Ilan University on the division of Jerusalem as part of a peace deal with the Palestinians.…

By Eli Lake
April 10, 2008

WASHINGTON — A new U.N. Human Rights Council official assigned to monitor
Israel is calling for an official commission to study the role neoconservatives
may have played in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

On March 26, Richard Falk, Milbank professor of international law emeritus
at Princeton University, was named by unanimous vote to a newly created position
to report on human rights in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian

Why Don’t the Democrats ask Mukasey Some Real Questions

April 7, 2008

Its headline news that top Democrats are asking Attorney General Mukasey to explain his comments about a pre-9/11 phone call from a terrorist to the United States.

Why doesn’t Congress ask Mukasey some real questions. For example:

* Mr. Attorney General, since the U.S. government knew the date and method of the 9/11 attacks, why weren’t the attacks stopped?

* Mr. Mukasey, because the government heard the 9/11 plans from the hijackers’ own mouths, why wasn’t anything done to stop them?

To Keep America Safe, We Must Impeach Bush and Cheney for Their Disregard of Life on 9/11

GeorgeWashington’s Blogspot
April 7, 2008

Even if you (unlike the military leaders, intelligence professionals, scientists,
engineers, and other highly-credible people who question 9/11
) do not believe
that elements within the U.S. government intentionally aided and abetted the September
11 attacks, or let them happen on purpose, you have to admit that the government
failed to do its job of protecting the American people.

For example, 9/11 was completely foreseeable. U.S. and allied intelligence
services had penetrated the very highest levels of Al Qaeda prior to 9/11
heard the hijackers’ plans from their own mouths.…

6 at Guantánamo Said to Face Trial in 9/11 Case

By William Glaberson
The New York Times
Saturday 09 February 2008

Military prosecutors are in the final phases of preparing the first sweeping case against suspected conspirators in the plot that led to the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001, and drew the United States into war, people who have been briefed on the case said.

The charges, to be filed in the military commission system at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, would involve as many as six detainees held at the detention camp, including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the former senior aide to Osama bin Laden, who has said he was the principal planner of the plot.…

Surprise! Zelikow says Shenon’s Lying

February 07, 2008

EXCLUSIVE: Former 9/11 Commission Chief Philip Zelikow on Allegations
He Secretly Allowed Karl Rove & White House to Influence 9/11 Probe

Earlier in the week, we spoke to Philip Shenon, author of “The Commission:
The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation.” Shenon suggested
that Philip Zelikow–the executive director of the 9/11 Commission–sought
to minimize the Bush administration’s responsibility for failing to
prevent the September 11th attacks. Shenon also revealed that Karl Rove repeatedly
called Zelikow during the probe.
