Disturbing 9/11 film is work of Hoosier

September 7, 2006, Indianapolis Star (Leading newspaper of Indianapolis)


http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060907/ENTERTAINMENT03/609070314/-1/ZONES01


Familiar,
disturbing images from five years ago flash by in "9/11: Press for
Truth." But the 86-minute documentary, directed by Ray Nowosielski of
Indianapolis, also asks what warnings top government officials received
before the terrorist attacks, and why so many questions remain
unanswered. The limited-run movie, opening in 27 cities, premieres
tonight in Manhattan. It will show in Indianapolis Friday through
Monday. Nowosielski, 25, and co-producer John Duffy got the idea for
the movie in 2003, during their last semester of film school at
Columbia College Chicago. It was there they learned of Paul Thompson's "The Complete 9/11 Timeline,"
and went online to read the researcher's compilation detailing the
events surrounding that fateful day. "We ended up reading until the sun
came up," said Nowosielski, who recently opened a Massachusetts Avenue
office. Nowosielski said he double-checked whatever they used. "We did
everything we could" to ensure accuracy. The documentary
prominently features Thompson; Bob McIlvaine, whose son died in the
World Trade Center attack; and several 9/11 widows who became known as "the Jersey Girls."
McIlvaine, after screening a rough version of the film, sent
Nowosielski an e-mail signed "Forever grateful," thanking the
filmmakers and saying, "Every high school, college and university
should have a copy of this documentary."


Note: Don't miss this amazing, moving 9/11 documentary (86 minutes) now available for free viewing on Google video at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1016720641536424083. The film is also available for purchase at http://cooperativeresearch.org/911_press_for_truth.html.

The 9/11 conspiracy: Rubbish or reality?

September 11, 2006, MSNBC


http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14789644/


It
is a bright and hopeful morning that greeted Americans on Sept. 11,
2001. Then it starts. By lunchtime, both buildings are gone, having
crumbled to the ground, neatly compacting themselves in the descent. In
the ensuing hours we begin to learn the names of those involved in the
tragedy. Their passports sitting atop the smoldering rubble prove
easier to find than virtually indestructible black-box data recorders
that vanish without a trace. We are told that Osama bin Laden – a known
terrorist who had been trained in war tactics by the United States – is
to blame. The destruction of a third Manhattan skyscraper – the 47-story Building #7 – also collapsed, although no plane struck it. It’s owner, Larry Silverstein, insured the building for $7 billion shortly before the disaster. “You
have to ask yourself some simple questions, like how is it that Morgan
Bush, the president’s younger brother, owned the company that was in
charge of security for the World Trade Center, yet it has never
appeared in The New York Times?”


Note: This article largely seeks to debunk the 9/11 cover-up, yet it does give some good information.

Robert Scheer: Gaping Holes in the 9/11 Narrative

September 11, 2006, Yahoo! News (By nationally syndicated columnist Robert Scheer)


http://news.yahoo.com/s/huffpost/20060911/cm_huffpost/029174


What
we still don't know about 9/11 could kill us. The public that has been
kept in the dark for five years by a president who may know the truth
but has chosen to ignore it. The belated release of the Senate
Intelligence Committee's second report...concluded that there not only
was zero connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, but that Iraq
was the one country in the region where Osama bin Laden could not
operate. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, and yet
there has been no serious investigation of the extended Royal family's
roll in the recruitment of bin Laden's "soldiers" and the ease with
which they secured legal visas
to enter the United States. Last week, Bush conceded that there were
indeed secret CIA prisons. Some [key 9/11 witnesses] have been
interrogated in secret for up to five years.
After five years of official deceit, it is not too difficult to believe
that the isolation of those prisoners was done less for reasons of
learning the truth about 9/11 and more in an effort to politically
manage the narrative released to the public.
There is glaring evidence that the latter was the case. The
9/11 Commission report contains a disclaimer box on page 146, in which
it is stated that the report's account of what happened on 9/11 was in
considerable measure based on what those key witnesses allegedly told
interrogators, and that the commissioners were not allowed to meet the
witnesses or their interrogators.
In short, the most cited
source that we have on what happened on 9/11, the much celebrated 9/11
Commission Report, was stage-managed by the Bush administration, just
as it has controlled and distorted so much other information.


Worried CIA Officers Buy Legal Insurance

September 11, 2006, Washington Post


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/10/AR2006091001286.html


CIA
counterterrorism officers have signed up in growing numbers for a
government-reimbursed, private insurance plan that would pay their
civil judgments and legal expenses if they are sued or charged with
criminal wrongdoing. The new enrollments reflect heightened anxiety at
the CIA that officers may be vulnerable to accusations they were
involved in abuse, torture, human rights violations and other
misconduct, including wrongdoing related to the Sept. 11, 2001,
attacks. The anxieties stem partly from public controversy about a
system of secret CIA prisons in which detainees were subjected to harsh
interrogation methods, including temperature extremes and simulated
drowning. The White House contends the methods were legal, but some CIA
officers have worried privately that they may have violated
international law. Bush last week called for Congress to approve
legislation drafted by the White House that would exempt CIA officers
and other federal civilian officials from prosecution for humiliating
and degrading terrorism suspects. Agency officials said that interest
has been stoked over the years by the $2 million legal bill incurred by
CIA officer Clair George before his 1992 conviction for lying to
Congress about the Iran-contra arms sales; by the Justice Department's
lengthy investigation of CIA officers for allegedly lying to Congress
about the agency's role in shooting down a civilian aircraft in 2001 in
Peru; and by other events. One former intelligence official
said CIA officers have recently expressed concern that lawsuits will
erupt if details of the agency's internal probe of wrongdoing related
to the September 2001 attacks become public.



9/11's Las Vegas Connection

Sept. 10, 2006, CBS News


http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/09/10/eveningnews/main1992178.shtml


The
title is "Loose Change." It may be the internet's first blockbuster
movie. It says: "If the government has nothing to hide, why are they so
afraid to answer a few questions?" Ten million have watched so far, and
that's only a fraction of the 42 percent of Americans recently polled
by Reuters who believe its message — that our own government covered up
critical evidence of 9/11. But it's more than conspiracy
theories on the Internet at work here. Some of the very people who
first investigated 9/11 admit there's still a lot they don't know about
the plot.
Dale Watson ran counterterrorism for the FBI and
led the investigation into 9/11. And one of the things that still
puzzles him most is the Las Vegas connection. All four of the 9/11
hijacker pilots flew Las Vegas in the months preceding the attack. Some
came twice. But once here, the men essentially disappeared. On his
first trip here hijacker Muhammad Atta rented a car, and drove it 110
miles in two days. But where did he go? Who did he visit with, if
anyone? There's not a clue. Why did Muhammad Atta and his sidekick
travel all the way to Portland, Maine, to connect with — and almost
miss — the Boston flight they later hijacked? Why did Atta earlier
travel all the way from Florida to Virginia Beach, Va., just to rent a
mailbox? The FBI still doesn't know — but hasn't stopped looking. Five
years after the crime a dozen agents remain on the 9/11 case. And they
still get 20 new leads a week.

Note:
Is it possible that practically no one supported the alleged hijackers
prior to 9/11? Why has only one man every been caught and tried? And
FBI agents were stymied by top officials in their attempts to search
his laptop before 9/11. Why haven't we heard that they are still
investigating the Las Vegas connection?

9/11 Conspiracy Theorists Gather in N.Y.

Septmeber 10, 2006, Los Angeles Times


http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/asection/la-na-conspiracy10sep10,1,828215.story


Striding
into Washington Square Park with a fistful of photocopied circulars and
an earnest _expression, Eric Williams could have been an environmental
canvasser or a hip missionary. In fact, he is a pastry chef — or was
until last week, when he quit his job to devote himself full time to
proving that the World Trade Center attack was ordered not by
terrorists but by officials in the U.S. government. As New York readied
for another anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, conspiracy theorists
and researchers who belong to a group known as the 9/11 Truth Movement
gathered in Greenwich Village. Among them were proponents of
the "LIHOP" theory, who believe that members of the government "let it
happen on purpose," and the "MIHOP" theory, who hold that government
officials "made it happen on purpose."
A Zogby International
poll taken in May found that 42% believed the government concealed
evidence that contradicts official accounts. Last week, Brigham Young
University announced that physics professor Steven E. Jones,
co-chairman of the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth, would be put on
indefinite leave while authorities investigated his claims that the
buildings were intentionally demolished using explosives. For Williams,
the former chef...his fascination with the events of Sept. 11 grew so
intense over the last two years that making pastries seemed pointless.
He...now devotes six to eight hours a day to researching and writing,
and hosts an Internet radio show and website. He has just sold the
German and Turkish rights to two of his books, "The Puzzle of 9/11" and
"9/11 101." Europeans are always interested, he said. Engaging New
Yorkers is more challenging.

The enduring conspiracy factor

September 10, 2006, Toronto Star (One of Canada's leading newspapers)


http://www.thestar.com


Five
years after the most reported and recorded cataclysmic event in world
history, one would expect the conspiracy theorists to have been pushed
to society's margins. Think again. As time passes, more and more
Americans are convinced the most bizarre theory is that 19 guys with
box cutters, directed by a bearded man in a cave in Afghanistan, pulled
off the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. An inside job? Those who believe
that are not crackpots, says Mark Fenster, a University of Florida law
professor and author of Conspiracy Theories: Secrecy and Power in American Culture.
Fenster says the John F. Kennedy assassination and the 9/11 attacks are
huge events that have been officially explained by tiny scenarios,
something people find unsatisfying. Kevin Ryan, a leading figure in the
conspiracy movement, [will] tell you what started him down the
conspiracy path. "I first began to be suspicious ... after it
was clear the Bush administration had lied to us about the reasons for
going to war in Iraq," says Ryan, who was lab director at an
Underwriters Laboratory subsidiary in South Bend, Ind., until he was
fired after questioning official reports on the collapse of the twin
towers. "Since then, I've wondered when the lying began." In Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11: A Call to Reflection and Action, David Ray Griffin,
a professor emeritus of philosophy and theology at California's
Claremont School of Theology, accuses the Bush administration of
orchestrating the attacks. Some of the leading conspiracy theorists are
scientists, engineers, theologians and university professors, 75 of
whom formed Scholars For 9/11 Truth.


Indications add up to government conspiracy

September 8, 2006, Seattle Post-Intelligencer (One of Seattle's two leading newspapers)


http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/opinion/284273_conspire08.html


An
Aug. 8 Seattle P-I editorial asked, "Where is the evidence?" about
government complicity in the 9/11 attacks. In 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 picture becomes
clearer through considering the following: The head of the
Pakistani intelligence service was in Washington when the attacks
occurred conferring with government officials. The Indian press
subsequently implicated him in wiring $100,000 to Mohamed Atta, the
lead hijacker. When the story broke, he was pressured into retirement
at U.S. insistence. Two FBI agents approached attorney David Schippers
with specific foreknowledge about the attacks. They claimed that
knowledge of the plot was widespread within the FBI for months before
9/11. His repeated calls to Attorney General John Ashcroft were never
returned. An article in New American on March 11, 2002, corroborated
the agents' story. From the beginning, the Bush administration delayed
and otherwise impeded the investigation. Those are but some of many
indications that together add up to government complicity. For the sake
of the common welfare, the truth behind 9/11 must be exposed.


9/11: Truth, Lies and Conspiracy -
Interview: David Ray Griffin

August 25, 2006, CBC (One of Canada's leading TV stations)


http://www.cbc.ca/sunday/911griffin.html


Solomon: I've put many of the questions that you raise in your book to Lee Hamilton,
and he simply said that they were inundated. [They couldn't] possibly
respond to every question. Griffin: I'm sure there's an element of
truth in that. On the other hand, the questions that I summarized in my
book were not idiosyncratic - these were the main questions that had
been raised by many, many members of the 9/11 Truth movement. I'm
afraid his answer is just an excuse for not dealing with any of these
questions. They have constantly refused to enter into any public debate
with any of the members of the 9/11 truth movement on these issues. We
would like to have a genuine investigation...one that is not controlled
by an insider to the Bush administration. The [9/11]
Commission was really run by Philip Zelikow, the executive director.
Zelikow determined what subjects would be investigated and what ones
not. Zelikow would also have been in the position of determining what
got deleted and what got included in the final report. Zelikow...was
essentially was a member of the Bush administration. He and
Condi Rice had served together in the administration of Papa Bush. They
wrote a book together. Then when George W. Bush became President, and
named Condi the National Security Adviser, she brought Zelikow on to
help with the transition. Then he was appointed to the President's
Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. I do not develop a theory as to
what really happened, there are so many mysteries. But what I say we
can be confident of is that the official story is false, and if the
administration is the one putting out the official story, it should be
the number one suspect for who actually orchestrated the attacks.

Government Scare Tactics

September 8, 2006, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco's leading newspaper)


http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2006/09/08/DDGK1KT8371.DTL


The
latest "let's scare everyone" campaign is in full swing now, because
the president's approval ratings go up every time the threat level
reaches red. With the enthusiastic cooperation of the media,
the government has managed to convince us that we are surrounded on
every side by crazed bomb throwers and that we must at all times be
vigilant and allow the government "to do its job," which is code for
"anything it wants."
Here's a headline from the Houston
Chronicle: "Latest terror scares show airport threat lingers." That's
like saying, "Latest false alarms show fire threat lingers." Since the
object of terrorism is to spread terror, the "latest terror scares"
demonstrate only that the government is abetting the work of
terrorists. Here's my favorite story, as reported by the Associated
Press: "A United Airlines flight...was delayed because a small boy said
something inappropriate, according to a government official speaking on
condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.
'He didn't want to fly,' the official said." I hope that small boys do
not hear about this. Mad at Mommy? You can turn her airplane around!
Listen to the people interviewed at airports. "It's worth it," they
say, patiently standing in line. Is it worth it to, say, raise taxes to
pay for better veterans benefits? Maybe it's easier to be afraid. Maybe
it's easier to blame the shadowy forces of international terrorism for
everything that's scary or evil or mean. Maybe it's easier than saying
that poverty has killed more people than the terrorists have; that
preventable diseases have killed more children than the terrorists
have; that the rights we don't fight for are the rights we lose.


Down for the Count

September 8, 2006, PBS


http://www.pbs.org/now/shows/236/index.html



New election machines, as mandated and funded by federal law, may
create a new election debacle instead of correcting the old one. In
2002, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), which allocated
$3.6 billion for all 50 states to update their voting systems. Some
industry analysts suggest that the government implemented the new
technology too quickly to the detriment of not only security and
performance of the new machines, but the integrity of our democratic
process. Avi Rubin, a computer science professor at John Hopkins
University...performed an analysis of voting machines produced by
Diebold. But his recommendation that the machines not be used in
elections fell on deaf ears. NOW traveled to Oakland County, Michigan
on Primary Day, where election workers encountered more than a few
frustrating snags, even when demonstrating the machines for us. In one
instance, it took five attempts for the machine to accept a ballot. We
also checked in on other states. What we found were alarming scenes of
computer and human error, poor results validation, nonexistent
contingency plans, and extreme vulnerability to tampering. In
half of 37 primaries held this year, there were technical problems
associated with the new HAVA-mandated technology. These included an
extra 100,000 votes recorded but never cast in Texas, which was blamed
on a programming error [and] ballot counting malfunctions in Iowa that
declared losing candidates as winners.



Who really blew up the twin towers?

September 5, 2006, The Guardian (One of the U.K.'s leading newspapers)


http://education.guardian.co.uk/higher/worldwide/story/0,,1864657,00.html


Shards
of glass and dust from the World Trade Centre towers sit on Professor
Steven Jones's desk at Brigham Young University in Utah. Evidence, he
says, of the biggest cover-up in history - one too evil for most to
believe, but one he has staked his academic career on exposing.
Jones, a physics professor, is not alone. He is a member of 9/11 Scholars for Truth,
a recently formed group of around 75 US professors determined to prove
9/11 was a hoax. In essays and journals, they are using their
association with prominent universities to give a scholarly stamp to
conspiracy theories long believed in parts of Europe and the Arab
world, and gaining ground among Americans. It is impossible, says
Jones, for the towers to have collapsed from the collision of two
aeroplanes, as jet fuel doesn't burn at temperatures hot enough to melt
steel beams. The horizontal puffs of smoke - squibs - emitted during
the collapse of the towers are indicative of controlled implosions on
lower floors. The scholars have collected eyewitness accounts of
flashes and loud explosions immediately before the fall. What's more,
the nearby World Trade Centre 7 also collapsed later that afternoon.
The building had not been hit by a plane, only damaged by fire.


BYU places '9/11 truth' professor on paid leave

September 8, 2006, Deseret News (One of Utah's leading newspapers)


http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/1,1249,645199800,00.html


Brigham
Young University placed physics professor Steven Jones on paid leave
Thursday while it reviews his involvement in the so-called "9/11 truth
movement" that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the
Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. Such a review is
rare for a professor with "continuing status" at BYU, where Jones has
taught since 1985. Jones was teaching two classes this semester, which
began Tuesday. Other professors will cover those classes, and Jones
will be allowed to continue to do research in his area of academic
study. Jones became a celebrity among 9/11 conspiracy-theory
groups after he wrote a paper titled "Why Indeed Did the World Trade
Center Buildings Collapse?" The paper was published two weeks ago in
the book "9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out"

and lays out Jones' hypothesis that the three towers fell because of
pre-positioned demolition charges — not because of the planes that hit
two of the towers. Recent articles about Sept. 11 conspiracy theories
that focused at least in part on Jones have appeared in the New York
Times, the Washington Post, the Guardian in London and other
publications. A modified version of Jones' paper was scheduled to be published this week in the online Journal of 9/11 Studies. Jones is a co-editor of the journal.


Alerts aid terror goals, study finds

September 6, 2006, San Francisco Chronicle


http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2006/09/06/MNG52L01KC1.DTL


Three
things can be expected from Bush's speech, according to a new study by
three Columbia University researchers: The media will repeat the
president's remarks. Public fear of terrorism will increase. And the
president's poll numbers will rise. Those have been the effects of
presidential pronouncements on terrorism since the Sept. 11 attacks,
according to political scientists. "These are interesting findings, and
confirm what many of us had suspected," said Mark Juergensmeyer,
director of Global and International Studies at UC Santa Barbara. "This
public panic benefits the terrorists whose work is made easier by an
overactive government response that magnifies their efforts. In an odd
way this puts the government and the terrorists in league with one
another," he said. "The main loser, alas, is the terrified public."
[The study's author said terrorists] "want to intimidate, they want to
spread fear and anxiety." Larry Beutler, director of the National
Center on the Psychology of Terrorism in Palo Alto, who reviewed the
Columbia team's research [commented] "There are findings
suggesting that the administration's use of the alert system increased
inordinately before the election and each time it did, Bush's numbers
went up about 5 percent."
The research is also a "damning
indictment of the media's bloodlust," said Matthew T. Felling, media
director for the Center for Media and Public Affairs in Washington.


Bush Acknowledges Secret CIA Prisons

September 6, 2006, ABC News/Associated Press


http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=2401691


President Bush on Wednesday acknowledged previously secret CIA prisons around the world. The
announcement from Bush was the first time the administration had
acknowledged the existence of CIA prisons, which have been a source of
friction between Washington and some allies in Europe.

European Union lawmakers said the CIA was conducting clandestine
flights in Europe to take terror suspects to countries where they could
face torture.


Study Finds Lung Problems in WTC Workers

September 5, 2006, New York Times/Associated Press


http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/us/AP-Attacks-Health.html


Nearly
70 percent of the rescue and cleanup workers who toiled in the dust and
fumes at ground zero have had trouble breathing, and many will probably
be sick for the rest of their lives, doctors said Tuesday in releasing
results of the biggest Sept. 11 health study yet. The Mount
Sinai Medical Center study is conclusive proof of a link between
recovery work at the World Trade Center ruins and long-term respiratory
problems, doctors said.



In Search of Accurate Vote Totals

September 5, 2006, New York Times


http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/05/opinion/05tue1.html


It’s
hard to believe that nearly six years after the disasters of Florida in
2000, states still haven’t mastered the art of counting votes
accurately. The most troubling evidence comes from Ohio...whose
electoral votes decided the 2004 presidential election. A recent
government report details enormous flaws in the election system in
Ohio’s biggest county, problems that may not be fixable before the 2008
election. Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland...recently adopted
Diebold electronic voting machines that produce a voter-verified paper
record of every vote cast. Investigators compared the vote totals
recorded on the machines after this year’s primary with the paper
records produced by the machines. The numbers should have been
the same, but often there were large and unexplained discrepancies. The
report also found that nearly 10 percent of the paper records were
destroyed, blank, illegible, or otherwise compromised.
Some of
these problems may be explored further in a federal lawsuit challenging
Ohio’s administration of its 2004 election. Secretary of State Kenneth
Blackwell...has been criticized for many decisions he made on election
matters that year. New York’s Legislature was shamefully slow in
passing the law needed to start adopting new voting machines statewide.
Now localities are just starting to evaluate voting machine companies
as they scramble to put machines in place in time for the 2007
election. Because of a federal lawsuit, New York has to make the switch
a year early.

Note:
Why has the media barely mentioned the federal lawsuit challenging
Ohio's administration of the 2004 election? This was the state the
determined the winner. For more on elections cover-up, click here.

The Conspiracy to Rewrite 9/11

September 3, 2006, San Francisco Chronicle


http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/09/03/INGR0KRCBA1.DTL


According
to a poll by Ohio University and Scripps Howard News Service, 36
percent of Americans believe that government officials "either assisted
in the 9/ 11 attacks or took no action to stop the attacks." Sixteen
percent of Americans, the survey indicates, believe that "secret
explosives"...brought down the World Trade Center towers. Robert Bowman,
who directed the "Star Wars" defense program under Presidents Gerald
Ford and Jimmy Carter, reached his own conclusion after
questioning...why the American military hadn't intercepted the hijacked
planes before they hit the Pentagon and the World Trade Center [and]
why the Pentagon didn't release surveillance tapes of American Airlines
Flight 77 hitting the military complex.
A former U.S. Air
Force lieutenant colonel with a doctorate from the California Institute
of Technology...Bowman theorizes that Cheney and other officials stood
to benefit financially. Bowman says they had a long-standing desire to
control Iraq's oil and to use the country as a strategic hub for
controlling the entire Middle East. The Sept. 11 commission, he says,
neglected to investigate these possible connections, leaving a huge gap
in the official account. Scholars for 9/11 Truth
[is] an organization that believes the U.S. government "permitted 9/11
to occur." Among the group's members are Paul W. Rea, a humanities
lecturer at St. Mary's College in Moraga; Tracy Belvins, a research
scientist in bioengineering at Rice University; Kevin Barrett, a
lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison...and Stephen LeRoy, an
economics professor at UC Santa Barbara who has been a visiting
economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

Why The 9/11 Conspiracies Won't Go Away

Septmeber 3, 2006, Time Magazine


http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1531304,00.html


A
Scripps-Howard poll of 1,010 adults last month found that 36% of
Americans consider it "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that
government officials either allowed the attacks to be carried out or
carried out the attacks themselves. Thirty-six percent adds up to a lot
of people. This is not a fringe phenomenon. It is a mainstream
political reality. Although the 9/11 Truth Movement, as many
conspiracy believers refer to their passion, has been largely ignored
by the mainstream media, it is flourishing on the Internet.
One of the most popular conspiracy videos online is Loose Change,
a 90-min. blizzard of statistics, photographs, documents, eyewitness
accounts and expert testimony set to a trippy hip-hop backbeat. It's
designed to pick apart, point by point, the conventional narrative of
what happened on Sept. 11, 2001. Loose Change is a compelling
experience. Take the section about the attack on the Pentagon. As the
film points out...the crash site doesn't look right. There's not enough
damage. The hole smashed in the Pentagon's outer wall was 75 ft. wide,
but a Boeing 757 has a 124-ft. wingspan. Why wasn't the hole wider?
There's something empowering about just exploring such questions. Loose
Change appeals to the viewer's common sense: it tells you to forget the
official explanations and the expert testimony, and trust your eyes and
your brain instead. It implies that the world can be grasped by laymen
without any help or interference from the talking heads. Watching Loose
Change, you feel as if you are participating in the great American
tradition of self-reliance and nonconformist, antiauthoritarian
dissent. You're fighting the power. You're thinking different.

Opium Bumper Crop Seen to Benefit Taliban

September 3, 2006, ABC News


http://abcnews.go.com/International/story?id=2390033&page=1


Already
the world's largest producer of opium, Afghanistan's 2006 output has
soared a staggering 59 percent, according to a survey by the U.N.'s
drug control program. So this year, the country that the
United States invaded five years ago to stabilize will produce 16,000
tons of opium. Drugs now make up more than half of gross domestic
product. Top government officials are tied to the drug trade.
Corruption runs rampant. Addiction rates in Afghanistan and neighboring Central Asia, Iran and Pakistan are skyrocketing.

Note: How is it possible that the opium production continues to skyrocket in Afghanistan, when it was decimated the year before the U.S. invaded Afghanistan? For a possible answer, click here.

Report Urges F.A.A. to Act Regarding False 9/11 Testimony



Septmeber 2, 2006, New York Times





http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/02/washington/02faa.html




The

Transportation Department’s inspector general urged the Federal

Aviation Administration on Friday to consider disciplinary action

against two executives who failed to correct false information provided

to the independent commission that investigated the Sept. 11 terror

attacks. The acting inspector general, Todd J. Zinser, whose office

acts as the department’s internal watchdog, found in a new report that

the F.A.A. executives...learned after the fact that false information

was given to the commission in May 2003 about the F.A.A.’s contacts

with the Air Force on the morning of Sept. 11. The inspector general’s

report, prepared in response to complaints from the independent Sept.

11 commission, found that the three F.A.A. executives failed to act on

an “obligation” to correct the false information provided to the

commission, which found widespread confusion within the aviation agency

and the military on the morning of the attacks. The F.A.A., part of the

Transportation Department, declined to identify the three executives,

whose names and titles were not revealed in the inspector general’s

report. Nor did the agency say whether it would consider disciplinary

action. Richard Ben Veniste, a commission member, said in an
interview on Friday that he was troubled that it had taken the
inspector general two years to complete his investigation—“more time
than it took the 9/11 commission to complete all of its work’’—and that
he released the report “on the Friday afternoon before the Labor Day
weekend.”






2 U.S. Reports Seek to Counter Conspiracy Theories About 9/11



September 2, 2006, New York Times





http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/02/nyregion/02conspiracy.html




Faced
with an angry minority of people who believe the Sept. 11 attacks were
part of a shadowy and sprawling plot run by Americans, separate reports
were published this week by the State Department and a federal science
agency insisting that the catastrophes were caused by hijackers who
used commercial airliners as weapons.
The official narrative

of the attacks has been attacked as little more than a cover story by

an assortment of radio hosts, academics, amateur filmmakers and others.

As a motive, they suggest that the Bush administration wanted to use

the attacks to justify military action in the Middle East. A nationwide

poll taken earlier this summer...found that more than a third of those

surveyed said the federal government either took part in the attacks or

allowed them to happen. And 16 percent said the destruction of the

trade center was aided by explosives hidden in the buildings. Details

are available at http://newspolls.org.

The State Department report...is titled, “The Top Sept. 11 Conspiracy

Theories” and says, “Numerous unfounded conspiracy theories about the

Sept. 11 attacks continue to circulate, especially on the Internet.”

Produced by an arm of the State Department known as a

“counter-misinformation team,” the report is dated Aug. 28...at http://usinfo.state.gov/media/misinformation.html.

Among those now propelling the argument that explosives took down the

trade center is Steven E. Jones, a physics professor at Brigham Young

University, coeditor with Mr. Ryan of www.journalof911studies.com, which published his paper, “Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse on 9-11-2001?”





Busted by the bloggers



September 1, 2006, Chicago Tribune





http://www.chicagotribune.com/chi-0609010279sep01,1,6555278.story




[On] the Web site porkbusters.org

is a quote attributed to former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott:

"I'll just say this about the so-called porkbusters. I'm getting damn

tired of hearing from them." Sens. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) and Robert

Byrd (D-W.Va.) are probably damn tired of hearing from them too. The
porkbusters led a pack of bloggers who outed the two senators for
bottling up a bill meant to help the public track how its tax dollars
are spent.
The measure would create a searchable online

database of federal grants and contracts. An unnamed senator...was

blocking that bill from coming to the floor. Under an arcane Senate

rule, any member who has concerns about a bill can block

it--anonymously. When the porkbusters learned about the so-called

"secret hold," they issued a call for bloggers to contact their own

senators and demand to know: Are you the anonymous blocker? Readers at TPMmuckraker.com and GOPprogress.com

joined in, and within days they had denials from 97 senators. That's

when Stevens decided to "fess up." The bloggers still weren't

satisfied. By Thursday, Byrd was the only senator who continued to duck

the question. Noting that Byrd's "penchant for pork would probably win

him the Pork Crown if he weren't saddled with minority status,"

TPMmuckraker pressed for an answer. By midafternoon, Byrd had admitted

he placed a hold on the bill--and said he has now released it. When

they were caught, Stevens and Byrd offered lots of blather about why

they were preventing taxpayers from finding out how their money is

spent. It's a good day for taxpayers and the bloggers who got to the

truth. And a bad day for secrecy in the U.S. Senate.







Religious book points 9/11 finger at Bush



September 1, 2006, Indianapolis Star/Associated Press





http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060829/LIVING/608290305/-1/ZONES01




The

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has tumbled into a new dispute over the

Sept. 11 attacks of five years ago. Its Presbyterian Publishing Corp.

has issued "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11"

(Westminster John Knox), containing perhaps the most incendiary

accusations leveled by a writer for a mainline Protestant book house.

Author David Ray Griffin

tells of concluding that "the Bush-Cheney administration had

orchestrated 9/11 in order to promote this (American) empire under the

pretext of the so-called war on terror." Griffin has solid mainline

credentials. He's an ordained minister in the Christian Church

(Disciples of Christ) and recently retired after a long teaching career

at the United Methodists' Claremont (Calif.) School of Theology. Such a

massive cover-up is possible, he explains, because people don't want to

believe high officials would "launch an attack on their own citizens."

Griffin also asserts claims about "abundant evidence" of Bush

administration orchestration of 9/11 in a separate anthology from

Westminster and also did so in two previous books for a small secular

publisher. He also has spoken to campus and church groups.

He's a member of "Scholars for 9/11 Truth"

along with Kevin Barrett, a Muslim instructor at the University of

Wisconsin who is under fire for making similar accusations. The
publisher's publicity contends that Griffin "applies Jesus' teachings
to the current political administration" and puts forth "an abundance
of evidence and disturbing questions that implicate the Bush
administration."




Note: The article also tries to tear down Prof. Griffin. It is interesting to note that none of the top U.S. papers picked up this important Associated Press article.

Major Problems At Polls Feared
September 17, 2006, Washington Post
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/16/AR2006091600885.html

An overhaul in how states and localities record votes and administer elections since the Florida recount battle six years ago has created conditions that could trigger a repeat...of last week's Election Day debacle. In Maryland last Tuesday, a combination of human blunders and technological glitches caused long lines and delays in vote-counting. The problems, which followed ones earlier this year in Ohio, Illinois and several other states, have contributed to doubts among some experts about whether the new systems are reliable. What is clear is that electronic machines have their own imponderables. In Montgomery County, the breakdown came when election officials failed to provide precinct workers with the access cards needed to operate electronic voting machines. In Prince George's County, computers...failed to transmit data to the central election office. At least nine other states have had trouble this year with new voting technology. In Ohio, results from the May primary election were delayed for nearly a week in Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) when thousands of absentee ballots were incorrectly formatted. Twenty-seven states require electronic voting machines to produce a paper trail available for auditing during a recount, but an analysis of Cuyahoga County's paper trail...showed that a tenth of the receipts were uncountable. For several years, prominent computer scientists have taken aim at the electronic voting machines. In analyses of the software that runs widely used models of the machines...scientists have shown how they could manipulate the machine to report a vote total that differed from the actual total cast by voters. In the Nov. 7 election, more than 80 percent of voters will use electronic voting machines.

Inner Circle Taking More of C.D.C. Bonuses
September 17, 2006, New York Times
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/17/washington/17cdc.html

Top officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention received premium bonuses in recent years at the expense of scientists and others who perform much of the agency's scientific work. Those inside the office of the centers' director, Dr. Julie L. Gerberding, have benefited the most. From 2002 through mid-2006, William H. Gimson III, the agency's chief operating officer, received bonuses totaling $147,863. Before Dr. Gerberding's appointment, members of the C.D.C. director's inner circle rarely received premium bonuses. Because bonus money is limited...the growing share of premium bonuses for Dr. Gerberding's closest advisers has meant less money is available for some scientists and other workers. In addition to those within Dr. Gerberding's inner circle, the increase in large cash awards within the centers has mostly benefited employees in the agency's financial, computer and human resources departments — not its scientists. Soon after arriving at the centers, Dr. Gerberding began a comprehensive reorganization of the agency. In its wake, many of the agency's senior scientists and leaders either left or have announced that they are planning to leave. The Washington Post and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution have reported on the turmoil at the centers in articles quoting disgruntled former senior scientists who said the changes had undermined the agency.

Note: Could it be that these bonuses are meant to keep top officials in line the the CDC's strong bias towards to pharmaceutical companies? For more vital information on this: http://www.WantToKnow.info/healthcoverup.

Renewable Energy Faces Funding Cuts
September 15, 2006, CBS News/Christian Science Monitor
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/09/15/tech/main2013856.shtml

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is quitting the hydropower and geothermal power research business — if Congress will let it. Declaring them "mature technologies" that need no further funding, the Bush administration in its FY 2007 budget request eliminates hydropower and geothermal research. "What we do well is research and funding of new, novel technologies," says Craig Stevens, chief spokesman for the DOE. "I'm just astonished the department would zero out these very small existing budgets for geothermal and hydro," says V. John White, executive director of the Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies. "These are very important resources for our energy future that could replace the need for a lot of coal-fired power plants." Indeed, the costs of lost opportunities from dropping such research could be enormous in the long run. Geothermal holds vast potential — at least 30,000 megawatts of identified resources developable by 2050. Meanwhile, the more than 5,400 potential "small hydro" power projects could produce about 20,000 megawatts of power, a DOE study in January found. And most would require no new dams at all, shunting a portion of a small river's flow to one side to make electricity. Others would add turbines to dams that don't have them yet. Together, high-tech hydropower and geothermal resources could contribute at least enough power to replace more than 100 medium-size coal-fired power plants with emissions-free electricity.

Media ownership study ordered destroyed
September 14, 2006, MSNBC/Associated Press
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14836500/

The Federal Communications Commission ordered its staff to destroy all copies of a draft study that suggested greater concentration of media ownership would hurt local TV news coverage. Adam Candeub, now a law professor at Michigan State University, said senior managers at the agency ordered that "every last piece" of the report be destroyed. "The whole project was just stopped - end of discussion," he said. Candeub was a lawyer in the FCC's Media Bureau at the time the report was written and communicated frequently with its authors, he said. The report, written by two economists in the FCC's Media Bureau, analyzed a database of 4,078 individual news stories broadcast in 1998. The analysis showed local ownership of television stations adds almost five and one-half minutes of total news to broadcasts and more than three minutes of "on-location" news. The conclusion is at odds with FCC arguments made when it voted in 2003 to increase the number of television stations a company could own in a single market. It was part of a broader decision liberalizing ownership rules. At that time, the agency pointed to evidence that "commonly owned television stations are more likely to carry local news than other stations."

Princeton prof hacks e-vote machine
September 13, 2006, MSNBC/Associated Press
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14825465/

A Princeton University computer science professor added new fuel Wednesday to claims that electronic voting machines used across much of the country are vulnerable to hacking that could alter vote totals or disable machines. In a paper posted on the university's Web site, Edward Felten and two graduate students described how they had tested a Diebold AccuVote-TS machine they obtained, found ways to quickly upload malicious programs and even developed a computer virus able to spread such programs between machines. About 80 percent of American voters are expected to use some form of electronic voting in the upcoming election. The AccuVote-TS is commonly used across the country, along with a newer model, the AccuVote-TSx. The machine Felten tested, obtained in May from an undisclosed source, was the same type used across Maryland in its primary election Tuesday, according to Ross Goldstein, a deputy administrator with the state's Board of Elections. Felten and graduate students Ariel Feldman and Alex Halderman...say they designed software capable of modifying all records, audit logs and counters kept by the voting machine, ensuring that a careful forensic examination would find nothing wrong. The programs were able to modify vote totals or cause machines to break down, something that could alter the course of an election if machines were located in crucial polling stations.

Note: To see the full paper on Princeton's website along with an excellent video demonstrating how election results can easily be corrupted: http://itpolicy.princeton.edu/voting. These machines have been used in several previous elections. As there was no paper trail for most of the electronic machines, we have no way of knowing if votes were manipulated.

The Path from 9/11
September 13, 2006, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/rory_oconnor/2006/09/the_path_from_911.html

Attention still must be paid...to the many questions about 9/11 that remain unanswered...such as why the Pentagon held back so much information about air defense deficiencies from the 9/11 commission that Chairmen Kean and Hamilton came close to asking the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation; such as why the Able Danger intelligence program...was ignored and closed down; such as why Osama bin Laden was allowed to escape from Afghanistan when cornered in Tora Bora. There is little doubt that that the 9/11 commission report has become the Warren commission report of our time. Chairman Thomas Kean's recent paid involvement with ABC's fictitious "historical" docudrama is but the latest reminder that the 9/11 tragedy has yet to be investigated fully or fairly. Both Kean and his Democratic Party counterpart Lee Hamilton now acknowledge...that they and their fellow commissioners bowed to political pressure when they didn't fully question New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani about his management decisions and emergency responses. Other commissioners complained repeatedly about White House obstacles put in their path. The commissioners also allowed the president and vice president to testify together (and not under oath) and went along with other administration demands, such as the one that only a minority of the commissioners could see a minority of the documents requested - and even then had to vet their notes with the White House before sharing them with the full Commission! We must continue to "press for truth" in connection with the events of September 11, 2001.

Air Force chief: Test weapons on testy U.S. mobs
September 12, 2006, CNN/Associated Press
http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/09/12/usaf.weapons.ap/

Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday. The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne. "If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. Nonlethal weapons generally can weaken people if they are hit with the beam.

NIH: Scientists Escape Ethics Punishment
September 12, 2006, CBS News/Associated Press
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/09/12/ap/tech/mainD8K3IQO00.shtml

Most of the federal scientists who improperly accepted personal money from drug or biotechnology companies walked away with reprimands or were allowed to retire unscathed. Only two of the 44 scientists found to have violated rules governing private consulting deals are being investigated for possible criminal activity, and they remain on the government payroll. NIH spokesman John Burklow said his agency wanted eight others reviewed for possible crimes, but those cases were rejected by the investigating office at the U.S. Health and Human Services Department. The two still outstanding...both committed "serious misconduct," so grave that they would be fired if they were civilians, NIH internal ethics reports contend. [A Congressional] subcommittee is expected to question NIH officials about documents showing it approved several taxpayer-paid trips for [Dr. Trey] Sunderland to attend conferences and events in places like Hawaii and Toronto, even after recommending his firing. Of the 44 alleged offenders...the majority received reprimands or warnings for failing to properly obtain approvals for their outside consulting work. NIH ethics reports allege...two scientists had unauthorized, unreported deals with drug companies—Sunderland earning more than $600,000 over eight years for consulting and speeches and [Dr. Thomas] Walsh more than $100,000 in five years—and that their consulting improperly overlapped with government duties.

More Canadians blaming U.S. policies for Sept. 11 attacks
September 11, 2006, Ottawa Citizen (leading newspaper of Canada's capital)
http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/story.html?id=864d6b12-1abd-49d3-b24f-06b73bed0d41&k=21573

A poll conducted for Canwest News Service indicates that 53 per cent of Canadians believe the attacks were "a very specific violent reaction to foreign policies of the U.S. government." The results show that Canadians are more firm in their blame since the first anniversary of Sept. 11, in 2002, when only 15 per cent said that U.S. foreign policy was responsible. Only 36 per cent reported that the terrorist bombings signalled an attack against "all western-style, affluent democracies because they hate their ideas and values, symbolized most by the United States." In a bizarre finding, the polling firm reported that 22 per cent of Canadians believe in a conspiracy theory in which the terrorist attacks were orchestrated by a "group of highly influential Americans and others" rather than by supporters of Osama bin Laden and his al-Qaida terrorist network. The theory that the U.S. pulled off an inside job to ultimately justify going to war for Iraqi oil persists in Canada and in the United States, fuelled by a few books and a compelling Internet documentary called Loose Change, created by two young Americans, which has been viewed by millions and is particularly popular on university campuses and in Internet chat rooms. The poll shows young adults aged 18 to 34 are most likely to believe in the conspiracy theory (26 per cent).

Slaves to American medicine
September 10, 2006, London Times
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2099-2338130_1,00.html

In 1972, the Tuskegee experiments on black people shocked the world. Now, a new report reveals that the official inquiry was a cover-up. The [syphilis] “trial”, conducted between 1932 and 1972, involved 400 black sharecroppers. The Tuskegee “volunteers” were not to be treated, either with Salvarsan or even antibiotics after their discovery. Ignorant of the true goal of the trial, the participants were destined to be living, and dying, examples of the terrible course of the untreated illness. Tuskegee, after its exposure in the media in 1972, thus became a byword in America for racist medical experimentation. Soon after the Tuskegee revelations, fault was admitted, apologies made. Yet in time, historians of medicine, sociologists and social anthropologists began to play down the scandal. Tuskegee, they argued, was an understandable error, given the absence of viable antidotes in the 1930s. But renewed outrage over Tuskegee is about to explode with an investigation entitled Medical Apartheid, to be published in the US early next year. The public-health historian Harriet Washington will reveal...that the Tuskegee trial was even more inhumane and morally degenerate than previously suspected. The role of Nurse Eunice Rivers became crucial. Above all, her task, aided by the study’s doctors, was to ensure that the syphilitic men would receive no treatment, despite the extraordinary advances in treatment from the 1940s onwards. “By 1955,” according to Washington, “nearly one-third of the autopsied men had died directly of syphilis and many of the survivors were suffering its deadliest complications.”

A Teen Who Sees With Sounds
September 6, 2006, CBS News
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/09/06/eveningnews/main1977730.shtml

At Sheldon High in Sacramento, Calif., 14-year-old Ben Underwood is a freshman like all the rest — well not exactly like all the rest. In his first week at school, a lot of people at the school haven't guessed that Ben has a secret. You probably couldn't figure it out watching him in combat at karate class … or hitting his mark in a pillow fight … or zipping down the street on his roller blades. But in class, you'll notice that Ben takes his notes in Braille. He is totally blind. His piercing brown eyes are made of plastic. He says he lost his [sight] two weeks before his third birthday. Ben had cancer in both eyes. But he discovered a way to beat his blindness. When he was about 6, he started "clicking," and quickly realized that the sound he made with his tongue bounced off things around him, giving him an idea what was there. Ben has much the same talent as the dolphins he visited at Sea World: the ability to use echolocation — returning sound waves — to sense his surroundings. His mother, Aquanetta Gordan, insists he should have every opportunity — but no pity. "To society he's blind, but that doesn't make him handicapped. He just can't see." Aquanetta has always told Ben he can do anything. "Once he said to be, 'Mom, I wish I could see.' And I said, 'But Ben, look at what you can do' I said, 'If we had a blackout right now, everybody would have to follow you.'" The more Ben manages to be ordinary … the more it's clear that he's extraordinary.

Military waste under fire: $1 trillion missing
May 18, 2003, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco's leading newspaper)
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2003/05/18/MN251738.DTL

The Department of Defense, already infamous for spending $640 for a toilet seat...couldn't account for more than a trillion dollars in financial transactions, not to mention dozens of tanks, missiles and planes. The nonpartisan General Accounting Office has raised the volume of its perennial complaints about the financial woes at Defense, which recently failed its seventh audit in as many years. "Overhauling DOD's financial management operations represent a challenge that goes far beyond financial accounting," GAO chief David Walker told lawmakers. Recent government reports suggest the Pentagon's money management woes have reached astronomical proportions. A GAO report found Defense inventory systems so lax that the U.S. Army lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units. When military leaders were scrambling to find enough chemical and biological warfare suits to protect U.S. troops, the department was caught selling these suits as surplus on the Internet "for pennies on the dollar," a GAO official said. "We are overhauling our financial management system," said Dov Zakheim, the Pentagon's chief financial officer. "The Pentagon has failed to address financial problems that dwarf those of Enron," said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles. Gregory Kutz, director of GAO's financial management division [said] "I've been to Wal-Mart. They were able to tell me how many tubes of toothpaste were in Fairfax, Va. And DOD can't find its chem-bio suits." Opposition to defense spending is portrayed as unpatriotic. Legislators are often more concerned about winning Pentagon pork than controlling defense waste.

Note: I just discovered this article from over three years ago. You can read the GAO Report (Page 17 on missing planes). Page two states, "To date, no major part of DOD has yet been able to pass the test of an independent audit." For an intriguing Online Journal article exposing the deep role of the Pentagon's former CFO (Chief Financial Officer) Zakheim in this corruption, click here. Why wasn't and isn't this front page headlines? Why are newspaper editors keeping this most vital information from the public?
