Rep. compares Bush to Hitler, 9/11 attacks to Reichstag fire 15 Jul 2007 America's first Muslim congressman has provoked outrage by apparently comparing President [sic] George W Bush to Adolf Hitler andhinting that he might have been responsible for the September 11 attacks . Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. "It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted." To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".
Christine Boutin rattrapée par ses propos controversés sur le 11-Septembre 05 Jul 2007 Christine Boutin rendant George Bush responsable des attentats du 11-Septembre? Pour le collectif ReOpen911, pas de doute. Sur son site Internet, qui exhume une vidéo de novembre 2006, les tenants de la théorie "conspirationniste" des attentats de New York et Washington vont plus loin, affirmant: "Le gouvernement français, représenté par Christine Boutin, envisage la responsabilité de G. W. Bush dans les attentats du 11 septembre 2001."
NIST exploring 9/11 conspiracy theory for WTC-7: New witness confirms Scholars previous findings By James Fetzer 02 Jul 2007 The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) appears to be moving in the direction of a "conspiracy theory" about the destruction of WTC-7 on 9/11 just as a new witness has emerged reporting extensive destruction inside the building many hours before it would be demolished. According to James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, these turns of events provide further confirmation for the conclusion that WTC-7 was brought down by a controlled demolition at 5:20 PM/ET.
Purdue 9/11 simulation exposed as fraud: Media covers up hoax and conceals crimes By James Fetzer 27 Jun 2007 A computer animation by engineers and computer scientists at Purdue University has been exposed as a fraud by a new member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth. James Fetzer, who founded the society, received a study from Nick Irving, replying to his invitation to submit an essay on the Purdue simulation, which can be found [here]. "Nick pointed out that the model was based upon false data about the weakening point of steel and the temperature of jet fuel based fires. He proved that fireproofing was irrelevant because the fires never reached the weakening point of steel. But most importantly of all," Fetzer observed, "he noticed that the simulation does not even model the 'collapse' and cannot have shown that these fires caused one."
New study from Pilots for 9/11 Truth: No Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon 21 Jun 2007 (PRWEB) Pilots for 9/11 Truth obtained black box data from the government under the Freedom of Information Act for AA Flight 77, which The 9/11 Report claims hit the Pentagon. Analysis of the data contradicts the official account in direction, approach, and altitude. The plane was too high to hit lamp posts and would have flown over the Pentagon, not impacted with its ground floor. This result confirms and strengthens the previous findings of Scholars for 9/11 Truth that no Boeing 757 hit the building.
Mobile phones may soon be used on planes 22 June 2007 One of the last telephone-free environments on the planet, the airplane, is about to be connected, allowing travellers to make mobile phone calls at high altitude. Requests to switch off cellphones and fasten seatbelts are a familiar part of the take-off routine for airline passengers, but a European company has found a way to make dialling safe and link up people from above the clouds. [*Apparently,* the passengers aboard 'hijacked' United Airlines Flight 93 utilized a time machine, in order to make their calls.

A chilling inheritance of terror By Syed Saleem Shahzad 30 Oct 2002 Ever since the frenzied shootout last month on September 11 in Karachi there have been doubts over whether Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed head of al-Qaeda's military committee, died in the police raid on his apartment... Now it has emerged that Kuwaiti national Khalid Shaikh Mohammed did indeed perish in the raid, but his wife and child were taken from the apartment and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in whose hands they remain. [See: "I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z." 15 Mar 2007 Excerpts from the testimony of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. A suspected [Waterboarded? Dead?] Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] terrorist who recently confessed to planning the 9/11 attacks.]

Detrick, MD laboratories, and mailed it to liberal democrats in Congress who were threatening to slow down passage of the Patriot Act. I confess that I ordered Dick Cheney’s staff to begin taking the anti-anthrax antibiotic Cipro just days before the first of the anthrax letters were mailed... I confess that I forced NORAD to provide 3 timelines of events for that day, all of which have been proven to be inaccurate.

CNN, BBC 24 Reports Conclusively Prove Media Prior Knowledge and False-Start Scripting of Building 7 Controlled Demolition By Aaron Dykes and Alex Jones 27 Feb 2007 It has now been discovered that BBC 24 also reported the Building 7 collapse before it fell. Furthermore, CNN’s Aaron Brown reported that Building 7 "has collapsed or is collapsing" over an hour before it fell. These clips both reinforce the shocking, newly discovered BBC coverage wherein Jane Standley reports the collapse early-- with the building still standing behind her.
Oops! Video: BBC was half an hour too early reporting on WTC collapse By thedreadzone 26 Feb 2007 'On September 11th 2001, BBC World reported at 4:57pm Eastern Time that the Salomon Brothers Building (more commonly known as WTC7 or World Trade Building 7) had collapsed. This even made the 5pm EST headlines, what is bizarre is that the building did not actually collapse until 5:20pm EST. [...] The woman reporter is telling the world that the building had collapsed when you can see it in the background over her left shoulder.'
NYPD Officer Heard Building 7 Bombs --'The whole time you're hearing boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. I think I know an explosion when I hear it' By Paul Joseph Watson 10 Feb 2007 Following our reports this week about three different ground zero rescue workers who all testified that they were told Building 7 was to be brought down, yet more revealing testimony has come to light - this time from a former NYPD officer and first responder, who states that he clearly heard bombs tear down Building 7 as he ran away from its collapse.
An explosion of disbelief - fresh doubts over 9/11 09 Feb 2007 ...[O]n a fateful September morning in 2001, did America fabricate an outrage against civilians to fool the world and provide a pretext for war on Al Qaeda and Iraq? Why were no military aircraft scrambled in time to head off the attacks? Was the collapse of the Twin Towers caused by a careful use of explosives? How could a rookie pilot - as one of the terrorists was - fly a Boeing 757 aircraft so precisely into the Pentagon? And who made millions of dollars by accurately betting that shares in United and American Airlines, owners of the four doomed aircraft, were going to fall on 9/11 as they duly did? An extremely high volume of bets on the price of shares dropping were placed on these two airline companies, and only these two.In the three days prior to the catastrophe, trade in their shares went up 1,200 per cent.
Ground Zero EMT: We Were Told Building 7 Was to Be "Pulled" --New Jersey Emergency Medical Technician asked "how could someone have rigged all these explosives?" before towers collapsed, support columns had been blown out By Paul Joseph Watson 08 Feb 2007 A New Jersey EMT has gone public on how emergency workers were told that Building 7 was going to be "pulled," before a 20 second demolition countdown broadcast over radio preceded its collapse. The ground zero rescue worker also blows the whistle on how he witnessed multiple underground support columns of the WTC towers that had been severed before the buildings imploded.
Dig Yields Surprising Find at Ground Zero 01 Feb 2007 Large steel columns from the fallen twin towers have been found beneath a service road being excavated at ground zero in the search for long-buried Sept. 11 remains, officials said Wednesday. The surprising discovery of World Trade Center steel in the past week raises more questions about what was left at ground zero in the cleanup after the 2001 attacks and how the service road was created in the first place.
What do the Statue of Liberty and WTC Towers have in common? By Karl W. B. Schwarz 29 Dec 2006 In 1989 - there were plans to erect scaffolding and disassemble the WTC towers and rebuild them. Cost projection was around $5.6 billion. One of the architects shows up to work one day and the MIB's were there - had confiscated all of the plans, specs, details, etc for WTC. They even confiscated their office cubicles and had tape on the floor outlining where they went. Reason - the exterior cast aluminum WTC panels had been directly connected to the steel superstructure of the building, thus causing galvanic corrosion. In short, the "life cycle" of the WTC was not 200 - 300 years, more like 30 years or so... There was a 1989 meeting and the folks at the architectural firm Emory Roth, the project architect that took over after the design architects completed the conceptual drawings that had their office, records, plans and specs seized - were told that the $5.6 billion "take it down, rebuild it" project was cancelled and in about "10-12 years" they would "blow it up and start over".

Boston Air Traffic Controller Says 9/11 An Inside Job --Knew people in FAA on day of hijackings who said intercept procedures should have been enacted as normal By Paul Joseph Watson 14 Dec 2006 A former Boston Center air traffic controller has gone public on his assertion that 9/11 was an inside job and that Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon tracked three of the four flights from the point of their hijacking to hitting their targets.

[See: Interview w/ former Boston Center Air Traffic Controller regarding 9/11 (Google video).]

O'Reilly Equates 9/11 Scholars With Terrorists --Threatens Truth Professors With FBI Investigation By Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones 14 Oct 2006 During Professor Jim Fetzer's appearance on The O'Reilly Factor Thursday night, O'Reilly equated the 9/11 Scholars with terrorists and threw his weight behind a move to have them being investigated by the FBI, in a similar vein to a previous case in which his false charges led to the arrest of another professor and charges of supporting terrorism which were later dismissed."I'd put the FBI on you and that nutty Barrett and find out what the hell you guys are up to," salivates O'Reilly, making reference to Sammy Al-Arian, a former professor at USF who was charged and later acquitted...
O’Reilly Sicks FBI on Fetzer, Barrett By Kurt Nimmo 13 Oct 2006 Bill O’Reilly, the scurrilous "phone sex" deviant and prime time bully, wants nine eleven researchers and investigators arrested—or, more accurately under the so-called detainee bill, disappeared into Gestapo torture dungeons—and presumably brought up on treason charges, marched before a secret military tribunal, and sent to the gallows... Not only did the reprehensible O’Reilly, who had the academic Dr. Sami al-Arian arrested and charged as a terrorist, slander [Jim] Fetzer and by extension anybody else who questions the government, he also demanded Fetzer be tailed by the FBI. "I'd put the FBI on you and that nutty [professor Kevin] Barrett and find out what the hell you guys are up to," threatened O’Reilly...
O'Reilly Takes on 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist! 13 Oct 2006 (Partial transcript from "The O'Reilly [O'Lie-y] Factor," 12 October 2006) JIM FETZER, believes Bush orchestrated 9/11: Well, you are wrong, Bill, because you haven't studied the case. We've created an organization consisting of experts and scholars, pilots, aeronautical engineers, mechanical engineers, structural engineers, physicists. We've been examining what the government's been telling us. And, frankly, Bill, it's a fantasy. None of the major claims made by the government can be sustained. We've been looking at this from every point of view.

How the FBI protected Al Qaeda's 9/11 Hijacking Trainer --New Revelations about Ali Mohamed By Dr. Peter Dale Scott 08 Oct 2006 As I say in our book, in 1993 Ali Mohamed had been detained by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada, when he inquired at an airport after an incoming al Qaeda terrorist who turned out to be carrying two forged Saudi passports. Mohamed immediately told the RCMP to make a phone call to the United States, and the call secured his release. We’ve since been told that it was Mohamed’s West coast FBI handler, John Zent, "who vouched for Ali and got him released."

9/11: The Massive Ignorance of Matt Taibbi By James H. Fetzer, Ph.D. 30 Sep 2006 A lot of intellectual rubbish has been published about the 9/11 Truth movement, but none quite as reprehensible as Matt Taibbi, "The Low Post: I, Left Gatekeeper", ROLLING STONE (26 September 2006). He begins with a blunder and ends with a travesty. He asserts that "9/11 Truth is the lowest form of conspiracy theory, because it doesn't offer an affirmative theory of the crime." But 9/11 Truth is dedicated to exposing falsehoods as well as revealing truths. If the government's account of 9/11 were true, there would be no need for an "alternative theory". We are critics of the official theory, which, in case Taibbi hasn't noticed, is itself a conspiracy theory!
The Dollar$ & $en$e of 911 By Douglas Herman 18 Sep 2006 Who benefitted most by the New York Massacre? Millions were invested before the attack. Hundreds of millions were made the same day. Neither crime received much attention by the US government. Perhaps because friends of the US government stood to gain billions of dollars, in the following years... Remember those Put Options? "The identity of this person who had foreknowledge of the attack is known and this person's identity is being protected by our government and this is a fact! Period, end of story," reported Jesse Richard, editor of TVNewsLies.com.
Bin Laden's superspy worked for the FBI, CIA and US Army 15 Sep 2006 Bin Laden’s spy in America, Ali Mohamed, manipulated American Intelligence from within the US, leading up to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This according to a National Geographic two-hour documentary [28 August] called "Triple Cross: Bin Laden’s Spy in America," The documentary is said to reveal the extraordinary tale of Osama bin Laden’s brilliant intelligence agent who played a key role in al-Qaeda terror plots while "triple crossing" US officials before 9/11. Ali Mohamed, a radical ex-Egyptian Army officer worked for the CIA, FBI and US Army, and answered to Osama bin Laden. The burning question is: how did Mohamed survive inside the United States for more than 14 years as a spy for Egyptian Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda?

Indications add up to government conspiracy By James Morgante 08 Sep 2006 ...[A] 2000 paper titled "Rebuilding America's Defenses," Project for a New American Century, whose founding members were Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, argued for vast increases in military spending to assure American global dominance. Such a process, PNAC said, would take time absent "a catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."...The symmetry between the 9/11 attacks and U.S. policy goals is but the backdrop to the case for government complicity.

Government Releases Detailed Information on 9/11 Crashes --Complete Air-Ground Transcripts of Hijacked 9/11 Flight Recordings Declassified - National Security Archive Electronic Briefing Book No. 196 11 Aug 2006 Edited by Barbara Elias
Big church publisher buys 9-11 Bush plot 09 Aug 2006 It wasn't Osama bin Laden who orchestrated the 9-11 attacks, it was George W. Bush, according to a book to be published this month by the Presbyterian Church USA. Called "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action," it is the third book on the conspiracy theory authored by David Ray Griffin, a professor emeritus of theology at Claremont School of Theology. According to Christianity Today, Griffin argues in his new book that the Bush administration planned the events of Sept. 11, 2001, so they could provide justification for going to war with Afghanistan and Iraq.
Book: Sept. 11 Panel Doubted Officials 04 Aug 2006 The Sept. 11 commission was so frustrated with repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and FAA about their response to the 2001 terror attacks that it considered an investigation into possible deception, the panel's chairmen say in a new book. Republican Thomas Kean and Democrat Lee Hamilton also say in "Without Precedent" that their panel was too soft in questioning former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani — and that the 20-month investigation may have suffered for it.
"The hijack's not supposed to be for another hour." 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes --How did the U.S. Air Force respond on 9/11? Could it have shot down United 93, as conspiracy theorists claim? 01 Aug 2006 Obtaining 30 hours of never-before-released tapes from the control room of NORAD's Northeast headquarters, the author reconstructs the chaotic military history of that day—and the Pentagon's apparent attempt to cover it up. By Michael Bronner "'When they told me there was a hijack, my first reaction was 'Somebody started the exercise early,' [Major Kevin Nasypany, the facility's mission-crew commander] later told me. The day's exercise was designed to run a range of scenarios, including a 'traditional' simulated hijack in which politically motivated perpetrators commandeer an aircraft, land on a Cuba-like island, and seek asylum. 'I actually said out loud, 'The hijack's not supposed to be for another hour,' Nasypany recalled."
"It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied." 9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon --Allegations Brought to Inspectors General 02 Aug 2006 Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of adeliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day [Nah, 'ya think?], according to sources involved in the debate. Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004,debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation , according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said.
Val McClatchey Photo: More Smoking Guns, or Total Fraud? By Killtown 18 Jul 2006 "Valencia (Val) McClatchey... is the person who took the famous photo of the mushroom cloud rising above a red barn that was supposedly from Flight 93 crashing down in Shanksville... Now after nearly five years of speculating over this photo,evidence has been discovered that conclusively shows that the mushroom cloud in her photo did not come from a Boeing 757 crashing at Shanksville and not only that, but there is something else about this photo that makes it a 100% proof positive smoking gun photo!

FBI says, "No hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11" 06 Jun 2006 "On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden's Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden's Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, 'The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden's Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.'"

9/11 Attacks - Avoiding the hard questions by Robert Steinback 01 Feb 2006 "How did a fire fed by jet fuel, which at most burns at 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit, cause the collapse of the Twin Towers, built of steel that melts at 2,800 degrees? (Most experts agree that the impact of airliners, made mostly of lightweight aluminum, should not have been enough alone to cause structural failure.) ...Why did building WTC-7 fall, though no aircraft struck it? Fire alone had never before caused a steel skyscraper to collapse. Why did all three buildings collapse largely into their own footprints -- in the style of a controlled demolition? Why did no U.S. military jet intercept the wayward aircraft? Why has there been no investigation of BBC reports that five of the alleged 9/11 hijackers were alive and accounted for after the event?"
9/11 As 'Reichstag fire' Raised to White House Press Secretary (White House Press Briefing) 05 Jan 2006 "Q Scott, a few days ago, conservative columnist Paul Craig Roberts had a column where he compared the administration's use of September 11th with Hitler and the Reichstag fire as a blanket cover for extraordinary measures. Now, this is coming from a conservative columnist; this is not Nancy Pelosi. Doesn't this concern you that these kind of reactions have come up especially with all the revelations about the NSA and spying?"
150+ 9/11 'Smoking Guns' Found in the Mainstream Media By Killtown 29 Dec 2005
Open and Shut --Four years later, we still have ten big questions By Jarrett Murphy "On Monday, December 5, the 9-11 Public Discourse Project—a private group formed by 9-11 Commission members after their official mandate lapsed in 2004—held a wrap-up press briefing in Washington... [10 questions on 9-11] 1. Where was the 'National Command Authority'? 2. Who gave the order to try to shoot the planes down? ...6. Why did 7 WTC fall?..."[7 WTC *fell* because Larry Silverstein gave the command to have it 'pulled.' See: Larry Silverstein, WTC 7, and the 9/11 Demolition (whatreallyhappened.com) Larry Silverstein, the controller of the destroyed WTC complex, stated plainly in a PBS documentary that he and the FDNY decided jointly to demolish the Solomon Bros. building, or WTC 7, late in the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. See also: Professional Demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 (prisonplanet.com) Larry Silverstein, the owner of the WTC complex, admitted on a September 2002 PBS documentary, 'America Rebuilds' that he and the NYFD decided to 'pull' WTC 7 on the day of the attack. The word 'pull' is industry jargon for taking a building down with explosives.]

What did U.S. military know before 9/11? --Congress wants to hear more about allegations that four hijackers were identified before they acted. 26 Nov 2005 A top-secret military program set up six years ago to probe the Al-Qaida terrorist network is provoking fierce new debate about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Military intelligence officers and contractors who ran the clandestine mission, named Able Danger, say that more than a year before the attacks, the operation identified four of the plot's 19 hijackers and produced a chart that fingered ringleader Mohamed Atta. Those claims contradict findings of the 9/11 commission set up by Congress.
Weldon seeks Defense testimony on al-Qaida 17 Nov 2005 U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., said he plans to ask the Pentagon to allow certain intelligence officers to testify about pre-Sept. 11 investigations.

BYU professor thinks bombs, not planes, toppled WTC 10 Nov 2005 The physics of 9/11 — including how fast and symmetrically one of the World Trade Center buildings fell — prove that official explanations of the collapses are wrong, says a Brigham Young University physics professor. In fact, it's likely that there were "pre-positioned explosives" in all three buildings at ground zero, says Steven E. Jones.

Newsday Shields Long Island Readers From 9/11 Skeptics By Nicholas Levis 04 Oct 2005 "We reported early Saturday morning that New York Newsday published an article about people who reject the US government's account of the September 11 events. The story by Newsday Staff Writer Patricia Hurtado had already appeared on the newsday.com website. But we later discovered that the editors kept it out of the newspaper itself. (That applies to the Long Island Saturday and 'Early Sunday' editions, which are nearly identical in news content; the story did run in the lower-circulation New York City editions.)"
FDNY Chaplain Resigns After Remarks About 9/11 Conspiracy Theory 30 Sep 2005 The fire department's Muslim chaplain abruptly resigned Friday after saying in a published interview that a conspiracy, not 19 al-Qaida hijackers, may have been responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks...

The indictments were based on new evidence presented by prosecutors who, since being sharply criticized by the judge a year ago, have traveled the globe [at taxpayers' expense] to 'strengthen' their 'case.'

Boycott Silverstein Properties! (Killtown's Blog) 11 Sep 2005 "On this 4th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it's time to start turning up the heat to get at the truth. Killtown is calling for a boycott of Silverstein Properties until Larry Silverstein explains what he meant about the phrase 'pull it' when talking about the WTC 7 collapsing on a PBS documentary. Silverstein has profited enormously from his entire complex being destroyed in the attacks and there is strong evidence that the collapse of the WTC 7 was a controlled demolition."

Day 1,461 And Counting --It's the fourth anniversary of September 11 -- and Osama bin Laden is still at large. By Michael Tomasky 08 Sep 2005 "...[E]ven the disaster Bush has created in Iraq takes a back seat to one overwhelming fact: By the time night falls on September 11, Osama bin Laden will have been at large for 1,461 days. America vanquished world fascism in less time: We obtained Germany’s surrender in 1,243 days, Japan’s in 1,365. Even the third Punic War, in which Carthage was burned to the ground and emptied of citizens who were taken en masse into Roman slavery, lasted around 1,100 days (and troops needed a little longer to get into position back in 149 B.C.)."

Getting Agnostic About 9/11 --A society of nonbelievers questions the official version By Mark Ehrman "Anyone who types the words '9/11' and 'conspiracy' into an online search engine soon learns that not everybody buys the official narrative of what took place on Sept. 11, 2001. [Professor emeritus David Ray] Griffin compiled a summary of material arguing against the accepted story that 19 hijackers sent by Osama bin Laden took the aviation system and the U.S. military by surprise that awful day in his 2004 book 'The New Pearl Harbor...'"
'Able Danger' Shut Down In February 2001 (Can't blame Bill Clinton, folks!) 13 Aug 2005 Ten days before publication of the 9/11 Commission report, commission staff discounted information from a military officer linking Sept. 11 hijacker Mohammed Atta to a terror cell believed to be operating in New York City more than a year before the terrorist attacks. According to a statement released Friday by The 9/11 Public Discourse Project, the two commission staff members who interviewed the officer in July 2004 concluded his story about a Defense Department intelligence counterterrorism program, called Able Danger, that worked to identify and target al-Qaida and other terrorists, was not credible. As a result, the information was not included in the commission's final report published July 22, 2004...A small group of Defense Intelligence Agency employees ran the Able Danger operation from fall 1999 to February 2001 - just seven months before the terrorist attacks - when the operation was unceremoniously axed, according to a former defense intelligence official familiar with the program. The former official asked not to be identified.

4 hijackers ID'd as al-Qaeda before 9/11, officer says 18 Aug 2005 A military intelligence team investigating al-Qaeda identified four members of the terrorist organization a year before they became 9/11 hijackers, according to an officer on the intelligence team. But he says that the FBI did not get the information and that the 9/11 Commission failed to expose the lapse.
'Able Danger' Stopped From Informing FBI 17 Aug 2005 An Army intelligence officer said Wednesday he does not believe the 9/11 commission pressed hard enough for documentation of claims that military intelligence found a U.S.-based terrorist cell that included Mohamed Atta, who turned out to be the leader of the Sept. 11 attacks, prior to the terrorist strikes.
'Able Danger' Intel Exposed 'Protected' Heroin Trafficking By Daniel Hopsicker 17 Aug 2005 "Mohamed Atta was protected from official scrutiny as part of an officially-protected cocaine and heroin trafficking network with ties to top political figures, including Republican officials Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris, and it was this fact—and not the 'terrible lapses' of 'weak on terror' Clinton Administration officials cited by Republican Congressman Curt Weldon—which shielded him from being apprehended before the 9.11 attack."
Officer: Unit Stopped From Giving FBI Info 16 Aug 2005 An Army intelligence officer says his unit was blocked in 2000 and 2001 from giving the FBI information about a U.S.-based terrorist cell that included Mohamed Atta, the future 'leader' of the Sept. 11 attacks. Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer said the small intelligence unit, called "Able Danger," had identified Atta and three of the other future Sept. 11 hijackers as al-Qaida members by mid-2000. He saidmilitary lawyers stopped the unit from sharing the information with the FBI.

CIA Commander: U.S. Let bin Laden Slip Away 15 Aug 2005 In a forthcoming book, the CIA field commander for the agency's Jawbreaker team at Tora Bora, Gary Berntsen, says he and other U.S. commanders did know that bin Laden was among the hundreds of fleeing Qaeda and Taliban members. Berntsen says he had definitive intelligence that bin Laden was holed up at Tora Bora—intelligence operatives had tracked him—and could have been caught.[Yes, but capturing bin Laden would have abrogated the contract he has with the Bush regime.]

In additon, Joseph Wilson analyzes the current political climate in the Bush Administration and the Middle East... Joseph Wilson is questioned on 9/11 in this segment of the interview:CLG: I can't let this moment pass without asking you about 9/11 and the Bush Administration. Do you notice any oddities about how the Bush Administration handled the events, the aftermath or the investigation of 9/11? Do you see any holes in the government's explanation of events? (Obviously, we at the CLG do. See our page: http://www.legitgov.org/9_1_1_oddities.html.) JW: I have obviously followed the inquiries into 9/11 and I know Dick Clarke and Rand Beers very well but I am not an expert. I look to the "Jersey Girls" who have so assiduously pushed the case in the memory of their late husbands, for real understanding. I have great admiration for them and for what they have done. They are not satisfied, so neither am I. http://www.legitgov.org/clg_interview_joseph_wilson_060705.html"
Reaction to Bush Insider Claim WTC Collapse Bogus Gets 'Huge Response' And Read By Millions Worldwide --After the dust settled, a former chief economist in Labor Department shocked by enormous support for his story and vows to keep writing about glaring inconsistencies in government's version of 9/11. By Greg Szymanski 29 Jun 2005 "When Morgan Reynolds called the official story about 9/11 bogus, it seemed like the whole world stopped for a moment to listen...

WTC Collapse Due to Controlled Demolition, "Inside Job" - Former Bush Advisor -by John Daly, UPI "A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President [sic] George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is 'bogus' and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, 'If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an 'inside job' and a government attack on America would be compelling.'"

Pre-9/11 Missteps By FBI Detailed --Report Tells of Missed Chances to Find 'Hijackers' --The inability to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, 'hijacking' plot amounts to a "significant failure" by the FBI and was caused in large part by "widespread and longstanding deficiencies" in the way the agency handled terrorism and intelligence cases, according to a report released yesterday.
TV show depicts 9/11 as Bush plot --Sunday night's episode of "Tatort," a popular murder mystery, revolved around a German woman and a man who was killed in her apartment. According to the plot, which was seen by approximately 7 million Germans, the dead man had been trained to be one of the September 11 pilots but was left behind, only to be tracked down and killed by CIA or FBI assassins. The woman, who says in the program that the September 11 attacks were instigated by the Bush family for oil and power, then is targeted, presumably to silence her. The drama concludes with the German detectives accepting the truth of her story as she eludes the U.S. government hit men and escapes to safety in an unnamed Arab country.
The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie --by Dr. David Ray Griffin, 9/11 Visibility Project 22 May 2005 "In discussing my second 9/11 book, The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions, I have often said, only half in jest, that a better title might have been 'a 571-page lie.' (Actually, I was saying 'a 567-page lie,' because I was forgetting to count the four pages of the Preface.) In making this statement, one of my points has been that the entire Report is constructed in support of one big lie: that the official story about 9/11 is true."

Another Lost Opportunity --An informant was providing U.S. officials with very specific information about a terrorist attack three months before 9/11. In the spring of 2001, one of the U.S. government’s most valuable terror informants gave the FBI a far more alarming account of Al Qaeda plans to attack inside the United States than has ever been publicly disclosed, according to newly available court documents. ...Fresh documents, released in federal court in Seattle in recent days, shed new light on an issue that dominated last year’s hearings by the September 11 commission: precisely how much did the U.S. government know about Al Qaeda plans to strike inside the country in the summer of 2001 when the attacks on the World Trade Towers and Pentagon were in their final stages?
FBI Protects Osama bin Laden's "Right to Privacy" In Document Release --Judicial Watch Investigation Uncovers FBI Documents Concerning Bin Laden Family and Post-9/11 Flights 20 April 2005 (Judicial Watch Press Release) "Judicial Watch, the public interest group that fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents through the Freedom of Information Act ('FOIA') in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation ('FBI') has invoked privacy right protections on behalf of al Qaeda terror leader Osama bin Laden. In a September 24, 2003 declassified 'Secret' FBI report obtained by Judicial Watch, the FBI invoked Exemption 6 under FOIA law on behalf of bin Laden, which permits the government to withhold all information about U.S. persons in 'personnel and medical files and similar files' when the disclosure of such information 'would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.' (5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(6) (2000)) ...Many of the references in the redacted documents cite publicly available news articles from sources such as The Washington Post and Associated Press."

VIDEO: CNN reported no plane hit Pentagon --See shockwave video file of a clip from CNN coverage on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. CNN reporter Jamie McIntyre says he inspected the Pentagon site and it is obvious no plane crashed there. Clip archived by TheWebFairy.com; Transcript by Total911.info "JAMIE MCINTYRE: From my close-up inspection, there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. The only site, is the actual side of the building that's crashed in. And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon and then caused the side to collapse. Even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that the floors have all collapsed, that didn't happen immediately. It wasn't until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed."

Did Bush's New Homeland Chief Shield Terror Ring In New Jersey? (Mad Cow Morning News) "Michael Chertoff, appointed by President [sic] Bush to head the Homeland Security Department, may have shielded from criminal prosecution a former client suspected by law enforcement of having funneled millions of dollars directly to Osama Bin Laden while in charge of the U.S. Government’s 9.11 investigation."
Chertoff played key role on 9/11 --In the minutes after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, while Attorney General John Ashcroft was rushing back from Milwaukee, Michael Chertoff was calling the shots... Chertoff would spend the next two years serving as a central figure in formulating U.S. anti[pro]-terrorism policy — from the effort to secretly detain hundreds of Middle Easterners in the USA, to increasing the FBI's authority to conduct domestic surveillance at religious gatherings and other public events.
Is Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman? --by Robert Scheer "Is it conceivable that Al Qaeda, as defined by President [sic] Bush as the center of a vast and well-organized international terrorist conspiracy, does not exist? To even raise the question amid all the officially inspired hysteria is heretical, especially in the context of the U.S. media's supine acceptance of administration claims relating to national security. Yet a brilliant new BBC film produced by one of Britain's leading documentary filmmakers systematically challenges this and many other accepted articles of faith in the so-called war on terror."
Ten Things We Learned About 911 In 2004 (Rigorous Institution, Blogspot.com) "1. The World Trade Center Black Boxes were recovered, though officials perpetuate the lie that they weren't. 2. FEMA really did arrive early in New York City, for the 'bioterror drill' Tripod II, and Rudi Giuliani's testimony to that effect before the 9/11 Commission is its only public testimony which remains officially untranscribed. 3. The Total Information Awareness program was ready to roll out before Sept 11, and John Poindexter's office was established in the Pentagon no later than Sept 12."
Ex-FBI agent admits giving out 9/11 data --A former FBI agent admitted that he gave online stock traders confidential details of federal investigations, including a probe of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Surprise Trip for Donald Rumsfeld; Interview With Brigadier General James Marks; Christian in Iraq --Transcript --Aired December 24, 2004 - 12:00 ET "DONALD RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: ...And I think all of us have a sense if we imagine the kind of world we would face if the people who bombed the mess hall in Mosul, or the people who did the bombing in Spain, or the people who attacked the United States in New York, shot down the plane over Pennsylvania and attacked the Pentagon, the people who cut off peoples' heads on television to intimidate, to frighten -- indeed the word 'terrorized' is just that. Its purpose is to terrorize, to alter behavior, to make people be something other than that which they want to be."

American Airlines saw a 6,000 percent jump in put options above normal the day before the attacks. However, there was no similar trading activity on any other airlines, according to market reports. The brokerage houses that had offices in the WTC, Morgan Stanley and Merrill-Lynch, saw27-fold and 12-fold increases in the purchases of put options on their respective shares between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10. 'The afternoon before the attack,alarm bells were sounding over unusual trading in the U.S. stock options market,' the CBS program 60 Minutes reported on Sept. 19."

That's when the filmmaker wonders aloud: What exactly was Bush thinking as he sat in front of a bunch of school children reading a book titled My Pet Goat, knowing two jetliners had been flown into the World Trade Center?
Firefighter Said Black Boxes Were Found at Ground Zero By Bryan Sacks and Nicholas Levis Oct. 27, 2004 "Amid the enormous detail of loss, sorrow and recovery conveyed in 'Behind-the-Scenes: Ground Zero,' a New York City firefighter reveals that at least three of the four black boxes from Flights 11 and 175 were found by 'Federal Agents' at the former World Trade Center site, during the clean-up efforts from September 2001 to March 2002. At the time of the disaster, Nicholas DeMasi was a firefighter at Engine Company 261 in Queens... The only statement on the status of the Ground Zero black boxes in the 9/11 Commission Report is buried in footnote 76 to Chapter 1, but it is definitive: 'The CVRs and FDRs from American 11 and United 175 were not found...'"
New Seismic Data Refutes Official Explanation --Two unexplained "spikes" in the seismic record from Sept. 11 indicate huge bursts of energy shook the ground beneath the World Trade Center’s twin towers immediately prior to the collapse. By Christopher Bollyn "American Free Press has learned of pools of 'molten steel' found at the base of the collapsed twin towers weeks after the collapse. Although the energy source for these incredibly hot areas has yet to be explained, New York seismometers recorded huge bursts of energy, which caused unexplained seismic 'spikes' at the beginning of each collapse. These spikes suggest that massive underground explosions may have literally knocked the towers off their foundations, causing them to collapse."
First-hand Accounts of Underground Explosions In the North Tower --This article from Chief Engineer magazine presents eyewitness account of the moments after the first plane crash, and describes evidence of large explosions in the lobby, parking garage and subbasement levels of WTC-1 at the time of the crash...

Participants in the Cover-Up of 9/11: The Case of American and United Airlines --by Elias Davidsson "The first AA aircraft (flight AA11, tail no. N334AA) is said to have left Logan airport in Boston at 7:59 with 92 people on board (crew, passengers and hijackers) and crashed at 8:46 on the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City... As of November 13, 2003, the statistical database of the Department of Transportation (BTS) did not even mention AA11 as a flight scheduled for September 11, 2001 (6). At a later date the Department added a record for this flight with the departure time set as zero. Checking again the BTS database for this article on November 18, 2004, I discovered that the DoT again amended its database by setting the scheduled departure of AA11 to the 'official time' of 7:45 (6). It appears that the DoT had received orders to align its database with the 'official account' on the crime of 9/11."
Clarke: CIA Had Spies Inside Al Qaeda, Pre-9/11 --The CIA had some low-level spies inside al Qaeda in the three years before the Sept. 11 attacks, but none who could provide advance information about the group's movements [?!?], according to testimony released on Wednesday from a closed-door intelligence briefing in 2002.

Months after the release of the official 9/11 Commission Report - even as Congress moves to implement its proposals for a radical centralization of security forces - growing numbers of Americans are doubting their own government's account of what really happened on September 11, and how... Last week, the New York City office of Eliot Spitzer received a citizens' complaint to open a legal inquiry into crimes still unsolved, more than three years later.

Former CIA agent says Bush to blame for 9/11 --Former CIA agent Ray McGovern went over what he considers the failures of the intelligence community and current administration over the past few years... He also criticized the 9/11 Commission's final report, saying the committee was comprised of political extremists who couldn't reach a consensus. "It wasn't a bipartisan commission; it was more like a bipolar commission," McGovern said. "To say that no one could prevent 9/11 was a bold-faced lie. It basically let the president [sic] and everyone responsible off the hook."
9/11 report 'deeply flawed' --The official September 11 commission report is deeply flawed because it fails to fix blame for US intelligence shortcomings, a group of former CIA and FBI officials said on Monday. The officials said there were "serious shortcomings" in the report made public in July.

Graham book: Inquiry into 9/11, Saudi ties blocked --Two of the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers had a support network in the United States that included agents of the Saudi government, and the Bush dictatorship and FBI blocked a congressional investigation into that relationship, Sen.

The discovery of the financial backing of the two hijackers ''would draw a direct line between the terrorists and the government of Saudi Arabia, and trigger an attempted coverup by the Bush administration,'' the Florida Democrat wrote.
Ruppert Names Cheney Prime Suspect In 911 Mass Murders --"I will name Richard Cheney as the prime suspect in the mass murders of 9/11 and will establish that, not only was he a planner in the attacks, but also that on the day of the attacks he was running a completely separate Command, Control and Communications system which was superceding any orders being issued by the NMCC [National Military Command Center], or the White House Situation Room." -- Michael Ruppert --Text of Michael Ruppert's Speech at the Commonwealth Club Last Night by repost Wednesday, Sep. 01, 2004 at 9:34 AM.

The Secret Hijacking --The Fifth Plane landed in Cleveland --by Woody Box "The Secret Hijacking -The Fifth Plane landed in Cleveland... --The thesis of the secret hijacked airplane helps to explain many hitherto unsolved peculiarities of 9/11. It looks like the existence of this flight was meant to be hidden from the public by interested circles, so the question arises: Why was it kept secret? And of course it would be interesting to find out the airport where Flight X started."
The Cleveland Airport Mystery --200 passengers got lost on 9/11 -- by Woody Box (May 30, 2004) "In midst the chaos breaking out in the hours after the WTC and Pentagon attacks, between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m an airplane made an emergency landing at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Rumours were going around that it was hijacked or had a bomb on board... The plane - Delta flight 1989 - was not hijacked, and there was no bomb. However, a closer examination reveals a bunch of conflicting statements concerning Delta 1989... For every aspect of the incident there are two different versions. Not one or three or four versions, but two. This article will prove that not one, but two planes made an emergency landing in Cleveland - in close succession."
German 9/11 trial in doubt after US blocks witnesses --The retrial of a Moroccan man convicted of involvement in the September 11 attacks appeared to be in doubt last night after the Bush dictatorship refused to allow two key al-CIA-duh suspects to give evidence.
Miracles and Wonders --by Alan Cabal "Before this new "Pico cell," it was nigh on impossible to make a call from a passenger aircraft in flight. Connection is impossible at altitudes over 8000 feet or speeds in excess of 230 mph. Yet despite this, passengers Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Jeremy Glick and Edward Felt all managed to place calls from Flight 93 on the morning of September 11... And last but not least, every suburban homeowner will want the miraculous PentaGrass. Whatever that lawn at the Pentagon is made out of, it sure is amazing stuff—it resists and repels fire, explosion, skid marks, aircraft debris, jet fuel, luggage and body parts." [A must read]
