Bush Admits Explosives Used in Buildings

For example, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed described the design of planned attacks of buildings inside the U.S. and how operatives were directed to carry them out. That is valuable information for those of us who have the responsibility to protect the American people. He told us the operatives had been instructed to ensure that the explosives went off at a high -- a point that was high enough to prevent people trapped above from escaping.

My Letter to Rep. David Wu

David Wu for Congress Campaign Staff 818 SW 3rd Ave., #1182 Portland, OR 97204 Re: 9/11: Facing the Facts Hello all of you! I’m sure the group running David’s campaign has changed since 2004, but some of you may remember me. I did my best to help David win in ’04 by campaigning, phone banking and writing letters to the O when they launched their last minute smear attack against him. We certainly must re-elect David in November. I am writing now to ask you a favor in return. I would like you to watch the enclosed video containing short presentations from various scholars and activists about the events of 9.11.01. Share this video among yourselves and then please share it with Cong. Wu as well. Many years of research have gone into these presentations. I have researched these issues as well and can unequivocally confirm that these are fact-based presentations. My study of the virtually unreported and nearly fatal cancer of election crimes in America has led me to study facts surrounding the 9/11 events. All roads of inquiry as to how we lost our democracy in fact lead to the events of 9/11. And now, the safe future of our democratic republic depends entirely on whether political leaders enlist sufficient backbone to face the truth about 9/11. And the matter is urgent. To restore a functioning democracy in America, we must face the facts, prosecute the crimes, and restore the rule of law. With that I will simply implore you to please watch the 9/11 Overview to understand first, what the facts are, and then to begin to understand the magnitude of the cover-up currently in progress. Please pass it on to Cong. Wu. He can expect questions about reopening 9/11. People are demanding a REAL investigation, not the sham one contained in the 9/11 Commission Report. He must be briefed on why this issue is so crucial and he must know the facts. Hopefully, we can avoid an incident similar to his disastrous gaff at Wu & Brew ’04 when he dismissed election theft inquiries as the entertaining of conspiracy theories. In my view, he has never truly recovered from that error in the eyes of progressives. We knew early on that Kerry won Ohio in ’04, and expected much better of Cong. Wu in addressing that crisis. (And no, sponsoring the dangerous “feel good” band-aid of HR 550 is not sufficient action in this area. See, http://electiondefensealliance.org/hr550auditflaws and http://www.democracyfornewhampshire.com/node/view/2243 for helpful background information.) In general, this idea that “it can’t happen here” is the most insidious and dangerous thought-stopper we face. Election theft CAN happen here …. and it did. The documented GOP sponsored thefts in Ohio ’04 and Florida ’00 and other swing states are proof (see, “Fooled Again” by Mark C. Miller, PhD., “How the GOP Stole America’s 2004 Election and is Rigging 2008” by Bob Fitrakis, J.D., and the statistical proof in “Was the 2004 Presidential Election Stolen” by Stephen Freeman, PhD.) These are now commonly accepted facts – we are governed by an illegitimate executive branch and a false GOP majority. Another thing that CAN (and did) happen here are the events of 9/11 – the neo-con’s much hoped for “New Pearl Harbor.” As you will see, it should more rightly be named Bush’s Reichstag. I invite you, and Congressman Wu, to please become familiar with the facts in this area so we can avoid a repeat of his unfortunate dismissiveness at Wu & Brew ‘04. Please watch the video, pass it on to Congressman Wu and get back to me as time allows. Good luck with the campaign and take care! Sincerely, Virginia L. Ross, Attorney Election Defense Alliance Democracy for Oregon PDX 9/11 Truth Alliance Washington County Democrats PCP

THE GREAT 9/11 COVERUP AND PAKISTAN CONNECTION

by Allen L Roland "We took an oath not to talk about it during the campaign, I think correctly so, to increase the capacity of that commission's report to be heard by the people's Congress. Now it's beyond the campaign, so the promise I had to keep this out of the campaign is over. Mr. President, you knew they were in the United States. You were warned by the CIA. You knew in July they were inside the United States. You were told again by briefing officers in August that it was a dire threat. Didn't do anything to harden our border security. Didn't do anything to harden airport security. Didn't do anything to engage local law enforcement. Didn't do anything to round up INS and the consular office, and say we have to shut this down, and didn't warn the American people. What did you do? Nothing so far as we can see ": Bob Kerrey - 9/11 Commissioner So there it is ~ Bob Kerrey ,9/11 Commissioner, blows the lid off of the thoroughness of the Commission's report ~ confirming what many of us have suspected for some time ~ that the Cheney/Bush administration knowingly allowed the trade Center attack with the hope that they could use it as an excuse to implement their resulting Middle East neocon madness. That would explain everything including George W Bush's famous seven minutes of inaction after learning of the attacks ~ he was not surprised and was waiting for instructions from his master ~ Darth Vader himself ~ Dick Cheney. This whole setup and coverup has Dick Cheneys fingerprints all over it and who has been the most vociferous purveyor of 9/11 and Iraq war falsehoods and innuendos ~ Dick Cheney. Watch this extremely well researched and riveting One Hour and Twenty minute film and you will realize that the real heros, who would not give up until they uncovered the Truth, were Mindy Kleinberg, Kristen Breitweiser, Patty Casazza and Lori Van Auken ~ all were widowed by the September 11 terrorist attacks. The film builds on how all four came together as they sought answers and explanations for the tragedy. In their perseverance they helped push for the establishment of an independent commission to investigate 9/11 ~ a request Congress reluctantly fulfilled last year and with little if any encouragement from the White house. ( Soon you will know why ) But now their efforts have since taken on a life of their own and new players have entered and established that Bin Laden was involved with and protected by Pakistan Intelligence(ISI)with obvious White house knowledge. In other words, Bin Laden was much more valuable to the Cheney/Bush administration alive, to be used in their fear and demonizing campaign, than dead. So Stand by ~ the October surprise, alluded to by Bob Kerry of the 9/11 commission, is rapidly growing proof that Cheney, Bush, Rice and Rumsfeld have all been knowingly lying to Congress and the American public inorder to implement their grand neocon global master plan in Iraq. Watch these people, particularly Bush, closely in this film and tell me if you don't see the deceit, arrogance and hypocrisy dripping from their words ~ We have all been had Big Time ! Share this film with everyone you know. This is the best film available to expose 9/11 as a cover up.

Something for the Peak Oil Deniers Out There

(Thanks to Jim Wrathall for this alert. ~GR) Enclosed below, please find an article (Sept. 6, 2006) from the Houston Chronicle which comments on a recently released research paper (Sept. 6, 2006) done by Robert Hirsch for the US Department of Energy.
Houston Chronicle Article: Sept. 23, 2006, 8:23PM Oil crunch: U.S. Energy Department study concludes crude production will peak, requiring other energy forms Last September, a Chronicle editorial warned that global oil production would peak in this decade or the next, and then inexorably decline. Given that likelihood, the United States would have to embark on a crash program to develop alternative energy sources or endure crippling increases in the price of energy. Last week, a study performed for the U.S. Department of Energy concurred with the editorial's conclusions. The study, led by Robert Hirsch, warned that the world should be spending $1 trillion per year developing alternative energy sources — including tar sands, oil shale and gas liquefaction — to avoid having its economy crippled by oil shortages and the resulting chaos. The study recommends a 20-year lead time, so it might already be too late to prevent a crunch. The report said the timing was uncertain. Hirsch predicted peak oil production could come in five years, almost certainly by 2020. Actually, the world would not have to arrive at peak production in order to experience severe shortfalls in oil supplies. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina showed what even a minor constriction in supply can do to drive prices skyward. Apart from natural disasters, wars, political unrest, government intervention, deteriorating equipment, accidents or any combination could interrupt the supply of oil. Demand for gasoline in the United States is dropping with the end of the summer vacation season. Consequently, prices also are dropping. But this trend is extremely temporary. Demand for oil in China, in India and throughout the developing world will continue to grow. Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson predicts that world demand for crude will increase 50 percent in a decade. Bloomburg News reported that the Energy Department study found that conventional oil production reached "soft and sudden" peaks in Texas in 1972, North America in 1985, Great Britain in 1999 and Norway in 2001. These dates were predicted by formulas used by proponents of the peak oil theory to predict the crest of global oil production. Perhaps the report's most serious conclusion is that the free market and private industry alone will not prevent economic catastrophe from energy shortages. Government must have a policy for managing the transition from conventional crude oil to other energy forms. Hirsch, a consultant and former government official overseeing research into solar and other renewable energy forms, said the conversion from oil could be compared to the race for the moon or the mobilization for World War II. Consumers, he said, could not rely on oil companies to get the huge job done. If oil company managers disagree, they need to demonstrate where all the oil is going to come from to meet rising demand, or propose their own plans for developing alternative sources.

Ginny, Tarpley and Brains on a Plane

Also note new audio in column at right Meanwhile --- just got back from a trip in which I spent a lot of time in planes and airports but used the opportunity to read 9/11 Synthetic Terror by Webster Tarpley. On one flight I even gave out a disc and found a convert I think (turns out he was a lawyer who worked on the 2000 Gore recount in Florida though so it didn't take much convincing! :-0) I hope all of you will read it! --- What a fantastic analysis and historical context for understanding the current crisis. In some strange way it is helpful to learn how multi-generational this predicament is. That is --- we can trace the tentacles of the (modern version of this) cabal back to the Kennedy era. I think by shedding light on this history we can help draw in more senior citizens to better awareness, i.e., it's not "that was then this is now" but "that was then, and it's still here now." Anyway, Tarpley has an outstanding method for portraying the historical precedents, patterns, tricks and diversions of the secret government so I hope you will give it a good read. See you soon! ~Ginny ~

In the Pit(t)s of Disinformation

Remember 9/11? Well, you see, it never happened Oregonian September 15, 2006 OpEd by Leonard Pitts, Jr. Write to him at: lpitts@herald.com Write to the Oregonian at: letters@news.oregonian.com Note from Ginny: Friends, Leonard Pitts' oped below so juvenile and insipid on so many levels, it is hard to know where to begin. But begin we must. We need to demand the Oregonian end this appalling propaganda campaign to distort and ridicule the debate. We must abhor and assail the use of such purposely incendiary and irresponsible headlines. And we must respond to Mr. Pitts' lobotomizing illogic with a floodtide of truth. Please provide your comments below or write directly to the Oregonian and L. Pitts and share your letter in a comment to this post. We all must reply, politely, intelligently and with the truth on our side. Notice how this is a "projective" piece by Pitts. Everything he accuses the movement of doing, he himself is guilty of ("rote rejection" "throwing the baby out with the bath water" "honest debate nearly impossible"). He then makes bald-faced and ridiculous leaps of logic equating the asking of real questions about 9/11 with adopting lunatic theories not supported by any honest researcher in the movement. This is called using "straw man" argument to create an emotional response. We need to expose and deride this tactic whenever it appears. The most heinous violation of logic in Pitts' piece, imho, is the subtle attempt to equate fact-based skepiticism of the official story with denial that the calamities of 9/11 ever took place. The purpose of this strategy is to anger people against the Truth movement, isolate us, and equate us with holocaust deniers or some such nonsense. This is the key absurdity of his piece and the best avenue to expose it for the farcical, infantile disinformation slop that it is. And be sure to mention the Zogby poll, too.
"I beg your pardon. Apparently I made an error of fact in a recent column. It turns out, contrary to what I wrote that there never was a Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the United States. It wasn't hijacked airliners that brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Nor did any airplane plow into the Pentagon. Nor did United Flight 93 come to earth in a field in Shanksville, PA. Rather this tragedy was staged by the U.S. government in order to dupe the nation into an oil war in the Middle East. Or at least, so I am told by a surprising plurality of readers. Add to that Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela and renowned loosed cannon, who said in a speech Tuesday the U.S. Government possibly had a hand in attacking itself on Sept. 11. Of course the U.S. government possibly doesn't even exist, that it and we and Chavez himself are only figments of the imagination of a little autistic boy staring into a snow globe. Possible, but not bloody likely. I don't propose to spend time debating whether Sept. unfolded as the official record says it did. If eywitness acounts ("I happened to look up and I saw this airplane not mor than 50 feet up coming right at us," Alan Wallace, a witness at the Pentagon, told the Washington Post), cockpit voice recordings ("Please, please don't hurt me", a voce on United Flight 93 pleads, ) cell-phone calls (passenger Thomas Burnett told his wife, "I know we're all going to die...I love you, honey" and common sense (if the planes wer not cashed, hat happened to them and their passengers?) are not enough to make the case, I can't imagine what would. No, I only bring this up because of what it says about our growing tendency to embrace separate but unequal facts en rout to separate but unequal truths. You might call it cynicysm, but cynicism is quaint and 20th century compaired to this new tendency to reflexively reject any facts provided by government or the dreaded mainstream media. Conspiracy thoerizing is not new -- ask Elvis next time you see him -- but what is new is that the Internet has broken the government/media monopoly on the dissemination and definition of news. While that's good in many ways, one troubling by product is this new notion that you cannot truly unerstand the great and terrible events of our time without access to some "factier" facts promugated by some Web site most of us never heard of, with an ideological slant that conveniently mirror's one's own. Granted, government lies sometimes and conspires somtimes, and media fail sometimes to be energetic watchdogs. So, certainly people have a right -- a duty --- to be skeptical of both. This, however, isn't skepticism. It's rote rejection, baby tossed out with the bath water. Once upon a time, we all drew from the same body of fact. We may have constructed different truths, but they were all based on commonly accepted facts. We all knew, for instance that the shuttle Challenger exploded in 1986. From that, we could debate what the tragedy meant, and we might or might not reach consensus. But as long as no on argued that it was really destroyed by aliens, we at least had the same frame of reference. No longer, as the question of whether there was really a terrorist attack Sept. 11 make abundantly clear. So honest debate becomes nearly impossible, and consensus even more so. I mean you may think a wall looks best in yellow, I may think it looks best in red. But if we can't agree on what yellow and red are, or what a wall is, we have no basis for even arguing about it. If you doubt that, ask yourself: When was the last time you had a political debate that was fruitful as opposed to merely loud? Don't feel bad. I can't remember one myself." Discuss. GR

9/11 CIA INTERNAL PROBE

Go to original. Wednesday, September 13, 2006 At the conclusion of CIA’s internal probe into the agency’s involvement into the 9/11 events, certain CIA agents began buying legal insurance. Now, many others are joining them. They should buy lots of insurance because they will need it. There is high anxiety at the agency these days where they believe that 9/11 prosecutions are imminent after their role in 9/11 becomes public. And in that, they are correct! As the U.S. government’s involvement in this black operation continues to unravel, the involvement of others in government such as the FBI and the military will become increasingly apparent. They should be shopping for legal insurance too. These rogue elements of super patriots in our government who participated in the murder and conspiracy events of 9/11, however, are not representative of most of the fine people who do work in government. Most who work in government would never contemplate such activities and find it hard to accept and reprehensible that others would have caused or facilitated the events of 9/11. The vast majority of government workers maintain a fidelity to the US Constitution, abide by the laws of our land, and exhibit a normal level of patriotism. The actions of the few should not contaminate the many others who continue to work diligently. The American People demand the appointment of a 9/11 special prosecutor now! This is the vital first step in coming to face the truth and eventually moving on with life. Once appointed, there will be a long and detailed investigation before the grand jury indictments are handed out. It is better to start now before the politicians get out of office in 2008. No one is exempt from following the laws of this land and the US Constitution and this includes the president, vice president and the secretary of defense. Members of congress, the newsmedia and the general public need to start pressuring the CIA now into completely revealing the results of their internal probe into the involvement by their personnel into the events of 9/11. Members of congress can officially request the information or subpoena it. The newsmedia and general public can use the Freedom of Information Act to get this information. Stalling is not an option and will only serve to incriminate the agency as a whole, not just the reprehensible few who may be involved in the conspiracy and murder of 9/11. Purging the agency of these bad apples will allow the agency to move on with the important work that they do on a daily basis, including protecting this country from real international terrorists. A rapid, truthful, and complete response by the CIA will go along way to resolving this matter favorably for the CIA. Those who participated in the 9/11 black operation need to contact federal prosecutors now before they get the knock on the door! Now may be their only opportunity to cut a deal with prosecutors that is favorable to their case. It is better to voluntarily come forward than to be on the receiving end. It is time to come clean.

Topoff 4 to take place in Portland, Phoenix in May 2007

Go to original. Portland, Ore., and Phoenix have been identified as sites for the nation's next disaster response drill. The two cities are expected to host Topoff 4 in May 2007. The multimillion-dollar drill, whose name is short for Top Officials, is the third to be run by the Department of Homeland Security to test federal, state and local preparedness and response capabilities to a complex terrorist attack scenario. A chief focus of the exercises has been the communications and data systems used to share information during crises. At the earlier exercises, federal, state and local agencies tested communication systems under development and even responses to cyberwarfare [See GCN story]. Anna Richter Taylor, a spokeswoman for Oregon Democratic Gov. Ted Kulongoski, confirmed the selection of Portland as a site for the event. News reports in Oregon indicated Phoenix was also selected for Topoff 4, although Taylor said she could not immediately confirm that. DHS officials did not return a call for comment. Taylor said the governor supports Portland’s hosting of the Topoff 4 drill and will consider providing some financial aid for it. “The governor made it clear that we wanted to collaborate and there would be grants involved,” Taylor said in the phone interview. The first federal Topoff drill was held in May 2000, before the formation of DHS. Topoff 2 took place in Chicago and Seattle in May 2003 to test responses to simulated dirty-bomb and biological-weapon attacks. The exercise involved thousands of public and private response agencies in both locations, as well as Canadian agencies. Next month, Topoff 3 will be held in Connecticut and New Jersey, with additional support in the United Kingdom. The types of attacks to be simulated have not been disclosed.

9/11 Five Years Later: What Have We Accomplished?

An Assessment of the 9/11 Truth Movement By Emanuel Sferios / September 11, 2006 This article is also on the web: http://www.septembereleventh.org/five_years_later.php Five years ago--on my birthday--the shadow government of the United States murdered over 3,000 of its own citizens (and hundreds of others) in a "false flag" operation designed to galvanize public support behind a war for control of the world's last remaining energy reserves. Many of us quickly saw through the "big lie" of 9/11 and began a movement to expose it, to reveal the truth, in the hopes that this would bring an end to the War on Terror, a war destined--if it continues--to turn nuclear. And now, five years later, what have we accomplished? In short, everything and nothing. We began this movement to convince the American public and the world that the official story of 9/11 was a lie, and that ruling factions within our own government were the real perpetrators. This we accomplished. Opinion polls conducted over the last two years show that the majority of Americans believe the US government was complicit. We bombarded every mainstream and alternative medium available with information, from Air America to internet blogs. We handed out leaflets in cities and towns across the country, held signs on street corners, wrote letters to everyone we could think of. And you know what? It worked. Today it is rare that I talk to a person who doesn't believe the US government was involved in the attacks in some way. Compared to just two years ago, when people would look at us like we were crazy for suggesting such a thing, this is an amazing success. Or so it seems. For at the same time, not a single perpetrator of 9/11 has been prosecuted, and the War on Terror continues unabated, as does the endless stream of lies and propaganda designed to keep us fearful and compliant. Why this discrepancy? What accounts for the 9/11 Truth Movement's seeming victory in shattering the American public's blind acceptance of the official story, and the stark reality that nothing has changed politically? In other words, why, in the midst of total success, have we failed? This is the question I have been asking myself over the last few years. As co-founder of the first national activist organization for 9/11 truth, the 9/11 Visibility Project (http://www.septembereleventh.org), I devoted two full years of my life to building this movement. And to see it grow from a handful of struggling yet dedicated individuals into the enormous yet ultimately ineffective movement it is today, saddens me to no end. Thus for me this is not merely an academic question. I mean it honestly: why, in the midst of a seeming total success, have we failed? The answer to this question, many have concluded, involves the lack of political will of the people of the United States. It is one thing to know the truth, and quite another to act upon that truth. Democracy Now is a case in point. A great many of us have had conversations with Amy Goodman and the other producers of Democracy Now, and they all know the official story of 9/11 is a lie. Yet except for a few segments we forced them to air as a result of our public pressure campaign (where they for the most part ridiculed us), they have chosen not only to ignore 9/11 truth, but to affirm the official story again and again in their programming.
