9 Years Later — Why 9/11 Truth Still Matters

By John Albanese

On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced that an estimated $2.3 Trillion in Pentagon spending was missing — and unaccounted for — from the Pentagon. One day later, on 9/11, the story also disappeared, along with any semblances of governmental accountability and journalistic integrity.

In the wake of 9/11 America was a traumatized nation where asking difficult questions was often perceived as unpatriotic and equated with disloyalty.

Forget the fact that $2.3 Trillion equals the GDP of Italy.…

Pentagon burns book and makes it a best-seller

October 1, 2010
By Michael Calderone

Publishers know that controversy fuels book sales. Apparently, so does burning them.

The Pentagon has only helped build buzz around “Operation Dark Heart,” a firsthand account of special operations in Afghanistan, by burning 9,500  copies — nearly all the first run. (Some review copies, released before publication, have filtered out and sold for more than $2,000 on eBay, according to Time magazine.)

Destroying books isn’t an everyday occurrence.…

9/11 Truth News

US Condemns UN Expert for 9/11 Statements

January 26, 2011

A UN expert on Palestinian human rights who suggested there was a cover-up
over the September 11 attacks should be fired, US Ambassador to the United Nations
Susan Rice said on Tuesday.

US academic Richard Falk wrote in a blog this month that there had been an
“apparent cover-up” by US authorities over the September 11, 2001
attacks, in which hijackers flew airliners into the World Trade Center in New
York and the Pentagon near Washington, killing more than 3,000 people.…

by Kevin Ryan
Published on his blog at

Having read a few of Peter Dale Scott’s earlier books, I was looking forward to his new work, American War Machine. I was not disappointed. Published by Roman & Littlefield in late 2010, this book examines a wide-ranging number of covert US operations since World War II, and, among other things, demonstrates that many of these operations were intimately connected with, and dependent on, illicit drug trafficking.…

New Song from Vic Sadot — ‘Courage to Resist’

Vic Sadot–Courage To Resist (5:21)

Courage To Resist, by Vic Sadot, is a tribute to GI Resistance and whistle-blowers in 2011. The title is taken from the name of the civilian organization called “Courage To Resist” that supports troops in service who become anti-war. The songwriter says “The song was inspired especially by Private Bradley Manning and Wikileaks for exposing the lies, war crimes, and cover-ups of the corporate empire”.

The song has two verses about Bradley Manning, Wikileaks, and the release of a video showing US helicopter pilots joking about killing 11 unarmed Iraqi civilians.…

Bradley Manning Now ‘Catatonic’; Obama ENOUGH!

March 7, 2011
by Ralph Lopez
War Is A

As Obama’s crime of the destruction of Bradley Manning continues to unfold before our very eyes, Manning friend David House now tells us that over 8 months in isolation with movement and sleep restrictions placed on him have been having their intended effect. House has told MSNBC that by the end of January Manning appeared “catatonic” and that he had “severe problems communicating,” with it having taken House nearly 45 minutes on a recent visit to engage in any meaningful way (video below.) House said Manning’s demeanor was as “if he had just woken up and didn’t know what was going on  around him.” Manning was “utterly exhausted physically and mentally…it was difficult to have any kind of social engagement.”

Also, a full month after Congressman Dennis Kucinich formally requested a visit, the Army has stalled on the request.

Pentagon Papers Whistleblowers, Congressman Who Saved Headwaters Forest, and 9/11 Commissioners Themselves Call for a New 9/11 Investigation

The two main players in releasing the Pentagon Papers were Daniel Ellsberg and United States Senator Mike Gravel.

Senator Gravel is the person who read the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record. This act made the papers public record, so that they could not be censored by the government. He was the only member of Congress courageous enough to do so.

Both Ellsberg and Gravel – like many other high-level former officials in the government and intelligence services (including many well-known whistleblowers) – support a new 9/11 investigation.…

Military Tribunal May Hide 9/11 Motives

By Ray McGovern
April 6, 2011

The Obama administration’s decision to use a military tribunal rather than a federal criminal court to try alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others means the real motives behind the 9/11 attacks may remain obscure.

The Likud Lobby and their allied U.S. legislators can chalk up a significant victory for substantially shrinking any opportunity for the accused planners of 9/11 to tell their side of the story.…
