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.…

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.…

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.…

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.…

‘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

World Trade Center Premieres, 9-11 Truth Movement Responds

by Carol Brouillet

Image of Grand Lake Theater Marquee

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.…

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

Truth activists can celebrate Thanksgiving astonishingly early this year given the precocious wealth of resources now hitting theaters and book shops across the land.…

Twenty Things We Now Know Five Years After 9/11

By Bernard Weiner, Co-Editor The Crisis Papers

August 29, 2006

The imminent fifth anniversary of 9/11 provides the proper moment for a good, ol’-fashioned sum-up of the past half-decade under CheneyBush, especially because so much has happened in the past 12-months:

The Bush Administration’s Katrina debacle, Iraq being sucked deeper into the civil-war vortex, Afghanistan turning once again into a major war theater, more and more military leaders speaking out about the disaster that is CheneyBush foreign policy, the defection of so many moderate conservatives from their GOP home, the plummeting of Bush’s popularity to not much more than his fundamentalist base, the revelation that Bush&Co.…

The Conspiracy to Rewrite 9/11

Conspiracy theorists insist the U.S. government, not terrorists, staged the devastating attacks

by Jonathan Curiel, Staff Writer
San Francisco Chronicle

Dylan Avery has a theory that he says casts doubts on Mark Bingham’s actions on Sept. 11, 2001. According to Avery, the San Francisco public relations executive never called his mom on a cell phone from the cabin of Flight 93, and never told her that “some of us here are going to try to do something.” Instead, says Avery, someone using a voice synthesizer — possibly a government official — called Alice Hoglan on the morning that Flight 93 — and Bingham — became part of Sept.…

The Disbelievers

By Michael Powell

Washington Post

September 8, 2006

He felt no shiver of doubt in those first terrible hours.

He watched the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and assumed al-Qaeda had wreaked terrible vengeance. He listened to anchors and military experts and assumed the facts of Sept. 11, 2001, were as stated on the screen.

It was a year before David Ray Griffin, an eminent liberal theologian and philosopher, began his stroll down the path of disbelief.…

Taking to the Streets on 9/11

Online Journal

September 18, 2006

On the morning of
9/11, I couldn’t watch the reading of names on NY1. Not five years in a row. I
clicked off the ritual of bereaved families, somber politicos and media
scripters and went to work on the computer. Before I knew it, it was 1 o’clock.
Something gnawed. I needed to go down to Ground Zero, at least to pay my
respects to the gone.…

Rice Loyalist Headed 9/11 Commission Probes

by 9.11 Blogger
WNY Media Network

Bob Woodward’s State of Denial provides evidence of the politicization of the 9/11 Commission’s investigative process, conclusions, and certain omissions from its report, as well as then national security advisor Condoleezza Rice’s likely role in burying unflattering, damning evidence through the appointment of Bush/Rice loyalist Philip Zelikow as the Commissions’ chief investigator and Zelikow’s reward (perhaps) of a top senior-level position in the State Department, which Rice now heads.…
