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.…

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.…

Rep. Curt Weldon Town Hall Meeting Audio

April 1, 2006

Encouraging answers today from Pennsylvania Rep. Curt Weldon’s in a Town Hall Meeting when he’s asked questions by 9/11 activists, Dave Slesinger and Jon Gold. Interesting perspective on Weldon’s passion about our firefighters, especially, and why he’s continuing to push for answers.

Weldon states he’s “willing to challenge the system… I hate to say that sometimes I don’t trust my government, but sometimes I don’t trust the government.” “Do I automatically accept what the government tells me?…

See the dust clouds

The number of people with medical problems linked to the 9/11 attacks on New York has risen to at least 15,000.

By Buzzy Hassrick

When the Sept. 11 terror attacks occurred, Russell Pickering was working as a professional firefighter in Seattle.

Especially because of his profession, he was deeply affected.

“The loss of firefighters and police was significant to me because of what I did,” he recalled.

His initial interest devolved into probing questions and eventually frustration that the federal government seemed unwilling to provide answers. From a network of contacts and information, Pickering has created a Web site about the attack on the Pentagon, www.pentagonresearch.com.…

Associated Press coverage of the New York 9/11 Truth group’s “9/11 First Responders: Voices From The Pit” speak-out. This is the group’s latest outreach effort to the toxin-stricken first responder community, which badly needs the solidarity given the stunning official neglect it still endures.

Wisconsin Lawmaker wants Lecturer Fired for 9-11 Conspiracy Views

Wisconsin Wire

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A state lawmaker is calling on the University of Wisconsin-Madison to fire a part-time instructor who has spoken out on his beliefs that figures in the U.S. government, not al-Qaida, were behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Kevin Barrett is scheduled to teach a class in the fall in the UW-Madison Department of Languages and Cultures of Asia, UW-Madison Provost Patrick Farrell confirmed in a statement Thursday.

But Farrell said Barrett’s comments on a Milwaukee radio talk show “raised some legitimate concerns about the content and quality of instruction in his planned fall course, ‘Islam: Religion and Culture.'”

During his appearance Wednesday night on Jessica McBride’s show on WTMJ, Barrett disputed most of the widely accepted information about the attacks that brought down the World Trade Center in New York City when airliners were flown into the twin towers.…

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.…

Nation’s largest 9/11 truth network marks second anniversary of the 9/11 Commission Report with campaign to survey all mainstream and third party congressional candidates re their awareness of the case for US government complicity in 9/11 and the high levels of public support for a full reinvestigation, as well as their personal willingness to back such an inquiry if they are elected in the fall.…

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

by Sibel Edmonds & Bill Weaver

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.…

The Disbelievers

By Michael Powell
Washington Post

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.…
