9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out

New book: 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out

Edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott
Olive Branch Press (Interlink Books)

Pre-pub Review (more follow…)
“This is the most important book of our time. Distinguished national and international scientists and scholars present massive evidence that The 9/11 Commission Report is a hoax and that the 9/11 “terrorist attack” has been manipulated to serve a hegemonic agenda in the Middle East. The book’s call for a truly independent panel of experts to be empowered to bring out the true facts must be heeded or Americans will never again live under accountable government.” — Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury during the Reagan administration

World Trade Center Premieres, 9-11 Truth Movement Responds

by Carol Brouillet

God bless the Grand Lake spirit.

Oliver Stone’s films have deeply touched many people’s lives, including my own. His film, JFK, prompted me to research the CIA and catalyzed my activism. I wrote to Stone twice, when we were working on one of the first American 9/11 truth documentaries, and later when I heard that he was making a film about 9/11. I sent him materials, books, documentaries about 9/11, and encouraged him to tell William Rodriguez’s story.…

Stop Belittling the Theories About September 11

However horrendous the crimes of two of the world’s great liars and terrorists in Gaza and Lebanon, it is imperative that we not let the deeds of Ehud Olmert and George W. Bush distract us from another recent event.

The U.S. alliance with Israel and the power of the lobby that lets Israel so easily influence U.S. foreign policy have been major factors in allowing the monstrous slaughter of innocent civilians in Gaza and Lebanon.…

‘Ginsburg Revisited’

By
James Marengo


It had to be flashing like a Pop-up ad
It had to be on digital on the television
It had to downloaded on the Internet
It had to be uploaded into American folklore

The C.I.A and Bin Laden are in Cahoots

It had to whispered to the TRL crowd
It had to be created by Corporate Headlines

The American Public sat still and silent while getting double-crossed by CEOs and extremists in plain clothes

Corporate cowboys with subliminal criminal intent

Soldiers in the CIA, working with Saudis, working with a worldwide
syndicate operating in the shadows of society

And it to be murmured from a big mouth

It had to be whined from an I-pod
It had to be debated by talking heads on the A.M dial
It had to be mumbled from the side of a mouth
It had to be muttered from under the stairs

It had to be enshrined next to Hoffa
It had to be buried in youngster’s memory
It had to be incarcerated within the facts
It had to be entombed in lecture halls

It had to be crushed in a rush to judgement
It had to be pronounced dead in the headlines that dictate our time
It had to disappear before it arrived
It had to be as inconceivable as a box-cutter knife

It had to be played on a loop
It had to be the war drum beating
People stopped dead during IM conversations

It had to be the second richest American Warren Buffet holding a golf
tournament at the same army base Bush would run too after terror
arrived

It had to be robber-barons pulling strings in a corporate underworld
Selling America out while screaming for freedom

It had to democrats and republicans working together in cahoots
against democracy

It had to be ringing on multinational cash registers with over
4,000 put options placed on victimized airlines

It had to be the CIA and the FBI and social elite working together
They were bigger than jihad
And they are bigger than you and I

It had to had to be a high-rise office filled with murder

It had to be smoked in the embers of a jet fuel fire
A Burning blog
Sound escaping from a muzzled shout

It had to be a solider that can’t breathe
It had to be in Condoleezza’s mouth
It had to be central intelligence, House of Bush, House of Saud,
Blue Bloods and corporate coercion

One big set of gangs working together in cahoots

Gang bangers
Executioners everywhere

The elite
The drunk
The brutal
The royal

On top of a makeshift concentration camp
The burning light of global warming
Prescription drug menace
Suburban ruins

Broken homes ravaged by nuclear concepts

It had to be the ariscrats
They hide behind democracy
And they got rich off of fear, sending anthrax reminders

They wanted RX Dopers
They wanted Waco
They wanted columbine
They wanted a war on the American psyche

It had to be the CIA and the Mujahideen and the FBI

Bloodthirsty unfettered capitalists
Vicious brigades ran by wannabe cowboys
A death squad for the entitled
The Army, Navy, and Marines dropping bombs on more poor people

It had to be capitalism
The vortex of this rage
A never-ending rat race
Brother against brother

Nick Berg’s head in a capitalists’ bed
The Afghan Sand
It rumbles in tycoons
And gang wars across oceans

Bombing Iraq settled the score when Saddam was hording oil and
planning daddy’s death

The Last breathe of America’s democracy
Bumped off with White House plots and plans

A warning to governments all over the globe

The sleeping giant is awake and is hungry for blood

The White House and CIA keep each other’s secrets
The Bandar and Dubya never hit their own
The Dick Cheney and Bin Laden are one mind

Brute force and full of money
Brute force, worldwide, and full of money
Brute force, worldwide, and full of money
Brute force, worldwide, and full of money
Brute force, worldwide, and full of money

It had to be rich and it had to be powerful
They had to murder in Afghanistan
They had to murder in Iraq
They had to murder in New York City
They had to murder in Washington D.C
They had to murder in Shanksville

And they had to murder America

Norway’s ‘Le Monde Diplomatique’ puts 9/11 on Front Page

Was September 11th an Inside Job?

Le Monde Diplomatique, Norway
July 1, 2006
(Rough translation by “Seabhcan”)

Introduction
9/11TRUTH: More and more people in the USA are convinced that the American authorities are concealing their involvement in the September 11th tragedy. Statements from witnesses, marked confidential for several years, now show that controlled demolition may have taken place. The US government had long anticipated such an incident – as the Republican document from 2000 Rebuilding America’s defenses indicates.…

C.I.A. Closes Unit Focused on Capture of bin Laden

By Mark Mazzetti
New York Times

 

WASHINGTON, July 3 — The Central Intelligence Agency has closed a unit that for a decade had the mission of hunting Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, intelligence officials confirmed Monday.

The unit, known as Alec Station, was disbanded late last year and its analysts reassigned within the C.I.A. Counterterrorist Center, the officials said.

The decision is a milestone for the agency, which formed the unit before Osama bin Laden became a household name and bolstered its ranks after the Sept.…

CIA Hid Key Info on 9/11 Thugs

by Derek Rose
New York Daily News

Editor’s Note:
Perhaps another piece of the puzzle for those still wondering why CIA chief George Tenet received Bush’s profuse thanks and the Medal of Freedom instead of 30 to life in Leavenworth.

 

The feds bungled a key opportunity to possibly nix the 9/11 terror plot, it was reported yesterday.

An Arabic-speaking FBI agent had requested information about a Jan. 5, 2000, Al Qaeda meeting in Malaysia, but the CIA never turned it over, The New Yorker reported.…

The Hidden History of 9-11-2001: a review

by Reprehensor

NINE-ONE-ONE — This three number combination is etched into the public psyche and instantly conjures up images of America’s most recent Day of Infamy. The images of chaos and terror were speedily delivered via satellite to anyone near a television set. At first, these images burst into the minds of the TV audience without context, but television viewers were not left long to worry their beautiful minds with troublesome questions like: “Who perpetrated these crimes?”

The narrative vacuum was quickly filled by the “official” story.…

9/11: The Myth and the Reality

by David Ray Griffin
(Authorized Version)

This lecture was delivered March 30, 2006, at Grand Lake Theater in Oakland for Progressive Democrats of the East Bay. Abbreviated versions of it were given in San Francisco for the Democratic World Federalists on April 2 and the Commonwealth Club on April 3.

Although I am a philosopher of religion and theologian, I have spent most of my time during the past three years on 9/11—studying it, writing about it, and speaking about it.…

Edmonds Moves to Dismiss Judge Walton

Lost in last week’s hubbub over the media breakthroughs for 9/11 truth was the latest twist in the Sibel Edmonds saga. The FBI whistleblower last Thursday filed a court motion demanding that the federal judge hearing her First Amendment case be recused for deliberately hiding his financial background.

The judge, Reggie Walton, is also currently hearing the perjury case involving I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby, former chief of staff to Dick Cheney, on allegations that Libby leaked the name of a CIA operative to the media.…

The Wire: Another Cover Story for 9/11 Truth

W. David Kubiak thought the 9/11 attacks would be a “wake up call.”

Banner for Wire article

“Once you could accept 9/11, you could say, ‘I’ve really got to look at the world again with new eyes,'” he said during a recent phone interview with The Wire .

Kubiak is a member of the steering committee of 911truth.org , a group formed “to investigate, unearth, and widely publicize the full truth surrounding September 11th, 2001.”

It’s been three years since the start of U.S.…

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

Editor’s Note:
Here are two articles on the Moussaoui trial, with testimony from one of those ‘spun up’ FBI agents in Minneapolis who couldn’t get FBI headquarters to sign on to searching Moussaoui’s laptop in August 2001.

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.…

Allegations of Bribes to 9/11 Commission – Pakistan

The 9/11 Commission made “dramatic changes” to its final report to omit information about the role of Pakistan, according to The Friday Times, a Pakistani weekly. After learning that the report would contain damaging revelations, the Pakistani government dispatched lobbyists to Washington to influence the 9/11 Commission, and may have even paid bribes to Commission members or their staff, the weekly says, citing an official at the Pakistani Foreign Office. “The disclosure sheds doubt on the integrity and honesty of the members of the 9/11 Inquiry Commission and above all on the authenticity of the information in their final report,” according to one source cited by the weekly.…

‘Mystery Woman’ Told Military of Atta Long Before Sept. 11

Despite Pentagon stonewalling and intimidation of whistleblowers, the story that a hardline Republican congressman says is “bigger than Watergate” refuses to go away.

Five former operatives of a US military intelligence project say they identified Mohamed Atta and three other men later alleged to have been the lead 9/11 hijackers as suspected al Qaeda terrorists working in the United States more than a year before September 11, 2001. The five whistleblowers say their superiors at the US Special Operations Command chose to suppress the information and keep it from law enforcement authorities, thus protecting Atta and Co.…

Who Is Osama? Where Did He Come From? How Did He Escape? What About Those Anthrax Attacks?

A Half-Dozen Questions About 9/11 They Don’t Want You to Ask

Source: www.counterpunch.com

By WERTHER
2/19/2006

The events of September 11, 2001 evoke painful memories, tinged with a powerful nostalgia for the way of life before it happened. The immediate tragedy caused a disorientation sufficient to distort the critical faculties in the direction of retrospectively predictable responses: bureaucratic adaptation, opportunism, profiteering, kitsch sentiment, and mindless sloganeering.

As 9/11, and the report of the commission charged to investigate it, fade into history like the Warren Commission that preceded it, the questions, gaps, and anomalies raised by the report have created an entire cottage industry of amateur speculation–as did the omissions and distortions of the Warren Report four decades ago.…

Apocalypse of Coercion: Why We Listen to What “They” Say About 9/11

By Kevin Barrett, mujca.com

“That’s just like hypnotizing chickens.” –Iggy Pop, “Lust for Life”

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…uh…(long pause)…we won’t get fooled again.” George W. Bush


They say suicidal Muslim fanatics did it. They say those radical Muslims hate our freedoms. They say the country is full of sleeper agents who could wake up and kill us at any moment, as soon as their little red-white-and-blue “I hate the USA” wristwatch alarms go off.…
