The 9/11 Commission v. 19 Named Muslims: A Trial in Absentia

The 9/11 Commission v. 19 Named Muslims:

A Trial in Absentia


Gary Wenkle Smith1

[This article first appeared in The Warrior, the official journal of the Trial Lawyers College ( and is reprinted here with permission.]

Within a few hours after the 9/11 attacks, our government named a group of 19 Muslim men as the principal players in the most devastating attack on this country–even more so than Pearl Harbor, as it was mostly civilians who were murdered on 9/11, unlike the mass murder of our sailors by another military power.…

Outrageous Conspiracy Theories: Report on a Conversation with Philip Zelikow

by Thomas Hansen, Ph.D.

It is nearly a year since the 9/11 Commission report was finished and the investigation of the events of 9/11 officially came to a close. But unofficially, many Americans have unanswered questions, and at least some of this hesitancy to close the book on 9/11 is because of the long-standing connection between the Bush Administration and the man who was the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, Dr. Philip Zelikow.

In a new book by Professor Emeritus David Ray Griffin of the Claremont School of Theology (The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, Olive Branch Press, 2005), the case is made that the staff of the 9/11 Commission acted as gatekeepers who followed the official explanation of events of 9/11, rather than acting as true independent investigators.…

NY Times Discovers (Finally) That US Intel Was Spying on Mohamed Atta Prior to 9/11

A US military intelligence team code-named “Able Danger” identified Mohamed Atta and three other alleged 9/11 hijackers as potential terrorists in the summer of 2000, at a time when Atta was living in Florida, according to yesterday’s New York Times .

But the Times story obscures at least as much as it reveals.

The 9/11 Commission was made aware of the Able Danger program in 2003, but failed to mention it in its 2004 report.

The Times calls yesterday’s revelation “the first assertion that Mr.…

Developments in Britain

(1) Oxford group plans a march and rally on Sept. 10th to culminate its 9/11 Truth Week. On Aug. 6, the Daily Mail printed the biggest article ever in the UK mainstream press to reject the official mythology of September 11th.

by Les Jamieson

Dr. David Ray Griffin spoke to packed audiences this weekend, in two engagements sponsored by, WBAI, and MUJCA-NET. Griffin’s presentations, focusing on the collapse of the WTC towers, are summarized here, including ten charactistics of the collapses that bring the “official story” into further question.’, ‘

Even after four years, controversy over the events of 9/11 continues to surface in the news. We recently witnessed the honest questioning of the official account by a FDNY Muslim chaplain which gave rise to a storm of intolerance and deflection of any actual and legitimate inquiry into the official account of the attacks.…

Mission improbable: Author challenges the official story of 9/11

By Greg Guma
Vermont Guardian


Burlington– For more than four years, the public has repeatedly been urged to ignore “outrageous” conspiracies theories about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that set in motion the so-called “war on terrorism.” However, the official explanation that has been provided — and widely embraced — also requires the acceptance of a theory, one involving a massive intelligence failure, 19 Muslim hijackers under the sway of Osama bin Laden, and the inability of the world’s most advanced Air Force to intercept four commercial airplanes.…

The Wargames of September 11th (beta)

The Complete 9/11 Timeline hosted by The Center for Cooperative Research recently published a revised set of entries on the military exercises of September 11 , providing a goldmine of well-sourced information. Compiled by Paul Thompson, the 9/11 Timeline long ago became the leading resource of mainstream news reports about September 11. Available in book form as The Terror Timeline (2004), it continues to evolve online.

A Fallen Hero

Written By Jon Gold

In February 2005 , “Speakers at the national meeting of the American Association for Advancement of Science expressed concern Sunday that some scientists in key federal agencies are being ignored or even pressured to change study conclusions that don’t support policy positions.” Their concerns are well-founded. In June 2005, The New York Times reported that Philip A. Cooney, “removed or adjusted descriptions of climate research that government scientists and their supervisors, including some senior Bush administration officials, had already approved” so as to play down emissions’ links to Global Warming.…

Essentially, it’s all about physics and common sense. Cut steel, and buildings fall. Crash a plane, and the Earth gets scarred. Fire a missile; see a hole. What’s up must come down, cause makes effect, and for the truth to set you free, it must be freed itself.

It’s dark in the basement of St.…

We nominate the following, published in New York Newsday on Feb. 18, for Letter to the Editor of the Month. It addresses the poisoning of New York in the aftermath of September 11, but the memorable last paragraph speaks to something even greater. How many letters of this kind must a major paper receive, before it publishes even one?

Tonight, I had the honor of meeting Bob McIlvaine. Mr. McIlvaine lost his son Bobby on 9/11. On the morning of 9/11, Bobby was supposed to take part in a seminar on the 106th floor of the WTC for Merrill Lynch. Mr. McIlvaine says that he doesn’t think he ever made it to that meeting. I’ll never forget his role as Commissioner at the “9/11 Omission Hearings” in New York City, 9/9/2004.

Mr. McIlvaine didn’t hold anything back, and I thank him for that.…

Spitzer On the Spot

March 23, 2006

by Les Jamieson

9/11 Truth activists have been showing up in Eliot Spitzer’s path lately. On Sunday, March 11th, three activists attended a swanky public reception for Eliot Spitzer and supporters of his candidacy for governor. Sander Hicks, author of The Big Wedding and a candidate for US Senate, Green party of New York, stood up and popped the question “Mr. Spitzer, why have you not opened an independent investigation into the events of September 11, 2001?” Many clueless Dems in the crowd got very agitated, but Sander persisted.…
