White House

We’re all paranoid

By Steven T. Jones
SF Bay Guardian

Sure, the people with the 9/11 conspiracy theories are a little odd. But not everything they’re saying is entirely crazy.

THE GRAND LAKE Theater in Oakland was filled almost to capacity March 10, just as the Guild Theatre in Menlo Park was the night before and the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco would be the next night, all for a documentary with bad production values and even worse leaps of logic.…

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and 9/11

by Matt Everett
The Journal of Psychohistory Volume 32, No. 3
Winter 2005

If what I say is right, the whole US government should end up behind bars.
– Andreas von Bülow, former German government minister and author of “Die CIA und der 11. September”


At the beginning of the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld promised: “What will follow will not be a repeat of any other conflict. It will be of a force and scope and scale that has been beyond what has been seen before.” The invasion that ensued was, like all wars, destructive and resulted in the loss of thousands of lives.…

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.…

Hustler asks ‘What if Everything You Know about 9/11 is Wrong?’

by Bruce David and Carolyn Sinclair

Hustler magazine – August 2005

We all know what happened on September 11, 2001 – Osama bin Laden inspired 19 Muslim extremists to hijack commercial airplanes and fly them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon. But what if it didn’t happen that way at all?

David Ray Griffin is a professor of theology, a well-respected scholar and author of more than 20 books, including The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions and The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11.…

Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Although tyranny…may successfully rule over foreign peoples,
it can stay in power only if it destroys first of all the national institutions of its own people.

That’s right, I said it. Forget about 9/11.…

Rove’s 9/11 Political Game: Strategy or Insanity?

Opinion by Cathy Garger
Contributing Writer
Online Journal

June 29, 2005–In the latest display of political partisan grand showmanship, D.C. swamp mud is being slung in typical dirty fashion between W’s political strategist and alter ego, Karl Rove, and a virtual “Who’s Who” list of Democratic congressional characters.

While such mud-slinging is normally just “business as usual” in any given week in the nation’s capital, this time the mud’s being slung far lower than ever below the Belt-way.…

Program to monitor Ground Zero workers’ health

A program to monitor the health of thousands of federal workers who answered the call of 9/11 has “been lost for more than two years,” the New York Daily News reports. It “vanished during the bureaucratic shuffle creating the Department of Homeland Security” …

The forgotten and yet most numerous direct physical victims of September 11th are those who were exposed to the air contaminated by the dust clouds formed when the buildings fell.…

9/11 and Internet credibility

Source: Click Here

By Mary Maxwell, Ph.D.

How long must we wait to judge the validity of the September 11th conspiracy theories that have floated around on the Internet for years? I believe there is a way to grant status and authority to the many excellent reports and analyses whose only sin is that they appear in electronic form instead of newsprint. Moreover, we should start this process right away. After all, if our government is behaving maliciously, we need to know it, communicate it to others, and act on it with urgency.…

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.

The latest material for the first time casts light on what may have been the day’s master wargame: Global Guardian, run out of Offutt Air Force Base by the US Strategic Command (Stratcom) under Admiral Richard Mies ( official bio ).…

Tonkin Gulf Intelligence

The truth-telling by New York Times reporter Scott Shane surely must shame present-day journalists, still MIA from investigative reporting on either 9/11 or the war: “… higher-level officials at the NSA were ‘fearful that [declassification] might prompt uncomfortable comparisons with the flawed intelligence used to justify the war in Iraq.’ Perhaps they will at last find their integrity when they realize, “The glaring light of publicity encouraged the Agency’s leaders finally to approve declassification of the documents.”

The question remains, will they find that lost integrity before 58,000 troops and 3 million citizens are dead, and fascist totalitarianism has become fully entrenched in America?…

Bush Impeachment Poll on MSNBC

Posted 12/31/05 at

Do you believe President Bush’s actions justify impeachment? * 183943 responses

Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial. 86%

No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching “high crimes and misdemeanors.” 5%

No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching. 8%

I don’t know. 2%

Not a scientifically valid survey.…

Green Party Calls For Bush Impeachment


Tuesday, January 3, 2006


Scott McLarty, Media Coordinator, 202-518-5624,

Starlene Rankin, Media Coordinator, 916-995-3805,

Congress must impeach Bush and Cheney, say Greens, citing White House lawlessness, growing threat to U.S. democracy, and war crimes.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Citing a litany of alleged high crimes and misdemeanors, abuses of power, and violations of the U.S. Constitution, Green Party leaders urged Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against President George W.…

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.… Announces The Citizens’ Counter-Coup

The dawn of 2006 offers concerned Americans an unprecedented opportunity to finally awaken the nation to the official criminality behind 9/11 and the subsequent cover-ups. Given the ongoing corruption and spying scandals on top of the previous war lies, stolen elections, Katrina debacle, looting of the national treasury, etc., the general public has never been more prepared to face the massive evidence of government complicity.

As anyone working to educate the public about 9/11 knows, there are millions of people out there who are viscerally aware of 9/11 treachery, but still can’t bring themselves to openly speak out or publicly demonstrate in protest.…

The Legend of United Flight 93

by Ted Rall

On the first anniversary of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93, Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge delivered a speech at the site of the disaster in western Pennsylvania. “Faced with the most frightening circumstances one could possibly imagine,” he told grieving relatives of the passengers and crewmembers aboard the fourth plane hijacked on 9/11, “they met the challenge like citizen soldiers, like Americans.” He recited the now-familiar story of passengers learning by phone about the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, deciding to fight back and breaking into the cockpit–a heroic act that led to their own deaths while sparing countless others in Washington.…

9/11 Skeptics Get a Loooong (and surprisingly fair) Treatment in “New York” Magazine

FBI Headquarters Thwarts Pre-9/11 Moussaoui Search, But Why?

Editor’s Note:
Here are two articles on the Moussaoui trial, with testimony from one of those ‘spun up’ FBI agents in Minneapolis who couldn’t get FBI headquarters to sign on to searching Moussaoui’s laptop in August 2001.

What is striking about agent Samit’s account, like the account of his office-mate Coleen Rowley, is the assumption of “criminal negligence” on the part of FBI headquarters, and RFU head David Frasca and Michael Maltbie in particular. Best I can see, criminal complicity has not been ruled out whatsoever.…
