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.…

Terror Crew Urged to Hit FBI’s Buildings

by Jonathan Lemire

New York Daily News

July 6th, 2006

This suggestive little snippet evokes “deja vu all over again” recalling the FBI’s industrious guidance of the WTC bombers in 1993. You would think the agency could have used a bit of its post-9/11 budget bonanza to at least buy a new playbook…

– Ed.

An FBI informant urged seven terror suspects to target FBI offices throughout the country – including one in New York – and even helped the men scout the buildings, law enforcement sources told the Daily News yesterday.…

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”)

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.…

Editor’s Note:
Despite the melodramatic title, this is a fine upbeat piece on Kevin Barrett’s 9/11 truth battle in Wisconsin with excellent action suggestions at the end.

Exclusive Report: Did Military Exercises Facilitate the 9/11 Pentagon Attack?

By Matthew Everett

Since 9/11, numerous authors and researchers have drawn attention to training exercises being conducted or prepared for by the U.S. military and other government agencies at the time of the September 11 attacks. With names like Vigilant Guardian, Global Guardian, Timely Alert II, and Tripod, the question has arisen as to what connection these drills might have had with real-world events that morning.[1]


Editor’s Note:
Profuse thanks to astute 9/11 researcher and contributor Matthew Everett for allowing us to debut his highly thought-provoking study of the many military exercises preceding 9/11.…

‘Ginsburg Revisited’

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

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


(This Poem Is an interloptation of Allen Ginsburg’s poem
‘Hadda to be playing on the Jukebox’)

Toying With Terror Alerts?

In the Bush era, the timing and quality of “arrests” and “warnings” have a suspicious ring

By Joshua Micah Marshall
Time Magazine
July 07, 2006

In these perilous days, we must be ready to think the unthinkable. No, I don’t mean the possibility of a catastrophic terrorist attack. After 9/11, that’s all too easy to imagine. No, I’m talking about a thought that even now seldom forces its way into respectable conversation: the quite reasonable suspicion that the Bush Administration orchestrates its terror alerts and arrests to goose the GOP’s poll numbers.…

AZ Radio Host Deconstructs Popular Mechanics’ 9/11 Disinfo Researcher

9/11 Facts and Myths: Charles Goyette interviews Davin Coburn, editor / researcher of PM’s original 9/11 conspiracy slam

Charles Goyette Show
KFNX Radio

Editor’s Note:
Ever wonder why prominent “official story” apologists always shun 9/11 truth debates?
Here perhaps is the nightmare that they dread. Show host Goyette is not an overt 9/11 skeptic, just a fearless interrogator with a very logical mind. One guesses the battered Mr. Coburn will be picking his interview venues with much more care next time.…

FBI Role in Terror Probe Questioned

Lawyers Point to Fine Line Between Sting and Entrapment

by Walter Pincus

Washington Post

September 2, 2006

Standing in an empty Miami warehouse on May 24 with a man he believed had ties to Osama bin Laden, a dejected Narseal Batiste talked of the setbacks to their terrorist plot and then uttered the words that helped put him in a federal prison cell.

“I want to fight some jihad,” he allegedly said. “That’s all I live for.”

What Batiste did not know was that the bin Laden representative was really an FBI informant.…

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 9/11 Commission: A Play on Nothing in Three Acts

by Sibel Edmonds & Bill Weaver
National Security Whistleblowers Coalition
Published in
September 5, 2006

A wag once famously said that Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot was a play where nothing happened . . . twice. The two former co-chairmen of the 9-11 commission report, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, have released a new book, “Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9-11 Commission.” This book goes Beckett one better — it is the third act of veneer over substance, self-aggrandizement over serious analysis, and cliché over perspicacity.…

Five Years On, 9/11 Truth Movement Reaches Critical Mass

– Near Majority Support, Powerful New Tools, and Energized Activism Promise Endgame Soon

September 11 Press Release

September 11, 2006 (PRWEB) — The year leading up to the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks has been marked by an unprecedented upsurge in public mistrust of the official story portrayed in the 9/11 Commission Report. Respected national polling firms Zogby and Scripps Howard have shown that less than half the public believes in the conclusions or integrity of the 9/11 Commission, and 36% of Americans now think the administration was actively complicit in the attacks to advance its preplanned Mideast war agenda.…

9/11 Live or Fabricated: Do the NORAD Tapes Verify The 9/11 Commission Report?

David Ray Griffin
September 4, 2006

A significant stir was created by the publication in Vanity Fair of “9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes” by Michael Bronner, the first journalist to be given access to these audiotapes–which NORAD had provided, upon demand, to the 9/11 Commission in 2004. The public impact of Bronner’s essay was increased greatly by the availability of snippets from these tapes (which could be accessed from the online version of the article) to be played on TV and radio news reports about the article.…

Taking to the Streets on 9/11

By Jerry Mazza, Associate Editor
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.…

Public’s Right To Know – Declassification and Release of Documents

Statement Regarding al Qaeda Threats
by Patty Casazza, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg, and Lorie Van Auken

Astonishingly, five years post 9/11 the public is made aware about an urgent July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then, National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. This information comes
from Bob Woodward’s newly released book, “State of Denial”.

Despite this Administration’s rhetoric that they had “no warnings” leading up to 9/11, it has become abundantly clear, that key Administration officials were made aware of the vast array of Al Qaeda threats and warnings that existed in years prior, and more importantly, in the weeks leading up to September 11, 2001.…

Documents: CIA Warned of Plane Bomb Plot


October 10, 2006

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – An anti-Castro militant now in a Texas jail warned the CIA months before the 1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner that fellow exiles were planning such an attack, according to a newly released U.S. government document.

The document shows that Luis Posada Carriles – who had worked for the CIA but was cut off by the agency earlier that year – was secretly telling the CIA that his fellow far-right Cuban exiles opposed to Fidel Castro’s communist government were plotting to bring down a commercial jet.…

Former CIA Officer Robert Steele Reviews Tarpley’s ‘Synthetic Terror’

Among Hundreds of Books, The Strongest Approach to Truth

October 7, 2006
Reviewer: Robert D. Steele (Oakton, VA United States)

Original at Amazon

Cover image of Synthetic Terror It is with great sadness that I conclude that this book is the strongest of the 770+ books I have reviewed here at Amazon, almost all non-fiction. I am forced to conclude that 9/11 was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war (see my review of Jim Bamford’s “Pretext for War”), and I am forced to conclude that there is sufficient evidence to indict (not necessarily convict) Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and others of a neo-conservative neo-Nazi coup d’etat and kick-off of the clash of civilizations (see my review of “Crossing the Rubicon” as well as “State of Denial”).…
