9/11 Whistleblower to Join Cindy Sheehan [17 Aug 2005] - Former FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley, along with a state senator whose son died in Iraq, are headed to Texas this week to join a growing anti-war demonstration near President Bush's ranch...``Our children are dying and I think it's time to go support Cindy and see if Bush will come out and we can say, 'President Bush, what is the mission exactly?' Truth has been shifting all around and I think we need to rejoin the world community and not occupy another nation,'' Lourey said. [ more ]

National Security Watch: FBI whistle-blower petitions high court [05 Aug 2005] - Sibel Edmonds takes her case to the Supreme Court ... Edmonds claims that she was fired in retaliation for reporting security breaches and possible espionage within the bureau. In its defense, the Justice Department is using the "states secrets privilege," an argument that information related to Edmonds's case is highly classified and cannot be disclosed without endangering the nation's security. If the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, the court's decision could influence the fate of several other lawsuits involving national security and intelligence in which the administration has used the states secrets argument. [ more ]

9/11 and the Mainstream Press [29 Jul 2005] - After the attacks of 9/11, I accepted the blowback thesis, according to which the attacks were payback for US foreign policy. About a year later, a colleague suggested that the attacks were orchestrated by our own government. My response was that I didn’t think the Bush administration---even the Bush administration---would do such a thing. [ more ]

FBI & 9/11 [20 Jun 2005] - Over four years ago, more than four months prior to the September 11 terrorist attacks, in April 2001, a long-term FBI informant/asset who had been providing the bureau with information since 1990, provided two FBI agents and a translator with specific information regarding a terrorist attack being planned by Osama Bin Laden. . . Where is accountability? [ more ]

A Personal Decision [10 Jun 2005] - Have you ever found yourself caught between several hundred million people and their most cherished lies? After writing a letter to a government scientist, pleading with him to clarify a report of his work, I found myself in just that situation. The letter was circulated on the internet and for a brief time I became a reluctant celebrity. Of course I stand behind what I wrote, although it was originally intended as a personal message, not an open letter. Since many have asked for clarification, here is my message to all. [ more ]

Outrageous Conspiracy Theories: Report on A Conversation with Philip Zelikow [07 Jun 2005] - One year after the 9/11 Commission report was closed, many Americans have unanswered questions, and at least some of this hesitancy to close the book on 9/11 is because of the long-standing connection between the Bush Administration and the man who was the Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission, Dr. Philip Zelikow... [ more ]

The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie [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.” . . . it might be wondered how many lies are contained in The 9/11 Commission Report. I do not know. But, deciding to see how many lies I had discussed in my book, I found that I had identified over 100 of them. Once I had made the list, it occurred to me that others might find this summary helpful. Hence this article. [ more ]

Gagged, But Not Dead [14 May 2005] - The Appeal Court’s decision on Sibel Edmonds’ Case is out: ‘Case Dismissed;’ no opinion cited; no reason provided. The Court’s decision, issued on Friday, May 6, has generated a string of obituaries; “another major blow, maybe the last one, to Sibel Edmonds, a woman who has faced an unprecedented level of government secrecy, gag orders, and classification.” Well, dear friends and supporters, Sibel Edmonds may be gagged, but she’s not dead.

A Theologian Asks the Hard Questions About 9/11 [11 Dec 2004] - Griffin's unflinching analysis of the unanswered questions surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington has made Amazon.com's bestseller list despite receiving virtually no reviews in North America's mainstream media. That's unlike in Britain, where he's had solid coverage, including a three-page spread in London's mass-circulation Daily Mail. [ more ]

Condi Rice Vs. Cynthia McKinney [09 Dec 2004] - In addition to asking tough questions about 9-11, McKinney authored important legislation that would prevent clear-cutting in our national forests; stop the use of depleted uranium weapons; and regulate US weapons transfers to non-democratic, human rights abusing regimes. [ more ]

Will the Peace Movement Pursue the Truth About 9/11? [06 Dec 2004] - With the apparent election of George Bush as President, the likelihood that we will ever find the truth about 9/11 becomes even more remote.

[ more ]

A National Disgrace [25 Nov 2004] - Many people have said that this Report "reads like a novel." It is indeed surprisingly good when judged in terms of criteria appropriate to works of fiction. But the 9/11 Commission was supposed to conduct a serious investigation into the question of who was responsible for the attacks of 9/11. [ more ]

The collapse of the WTC [11 Nov 2004] - This story just does not add up. If steel from those buildings did soften or melt, I’m sure we can all agree that this was certainly not due to jet fuel fires of any kind, let alone the briefly burning fires in those towers. That fact should be of great concern to all Americans. [ more ]

NY Attorney General's Office Accepts Unprecedented Citizens' Complaint Demanding Criminal Inquiry into 9/11 Crimes [01 Nov 2004] - On behalf of New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Chief Investigator William Casey today accepted a Complaint and Petition from a group of New York City citizens including 9/11 family members, survivors and a Ground Zero triage physician.

[ more ]

The truth about Zelikow and the Sept. 11 cover-up commission [20 Oct 2004] - While Sept. 11 has been used to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, shred the Constitution and Bill of Rights, construct a global police state, enrich weapons manufacturers and seize oil assets, there have been no convictions in any courts of law supporting the government conspiracy theory, particularly the Saddam Hussein / Al Qaeda link. [ more ]

The Making of the Terror Myth [15 Oct 2004] - The Power of Nightmares [documentary] seeks to overturn much of what is widely believed about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida. The latter, it argues, is not an organised international network. It does not have members or a leader. It does not have "sleeper cells". It does not have an overall strategy. In fact, it barely exists at all, except as an idea about cleansing a corrupt world through religious violence. [ more ]

Former CIA Agent Says Bush to Blame for 9/11 [22 Sept 2004] - "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 and everyone responsible off the hook." [ more ]

The Complaint seeks to compel the release of a secret investigative report, and related documents, compiled by the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General. The DOJ OIG investigated Edmonds' allegations for more than two years and has failed to abide by repeated promises - including provided to Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) in June 2002 - to timely complete its investigation and release its findings. [ more ]

An Open Letter to Congress from 25 National Security Experts [13 Sept 2004] - The report simply does not get at key problems within the intelligence, aviation security, and law enforcement communities. The omission of such serious and applicable issues and information by itself renders the report flawed, and casts doubt on the validity of many of its recommendations... [ more ]

9/11 Truth Movement Marches On [13 Sept 2004] - A grass roots national movement of truth-seekers is gathering momentum and gaining credibility with each day. A growing library of evidence has been compiled, which refutes the "official" story of what happened with exhaustive research and precise analysis. Books by David Ray Griffin and Jim Marrs, along with numerous articles, DVDs, and web sites deconstruct the story presented by the government and used as the pretext for its international war on terrorism, leaving dozens of unanswered questions. The amassed material is as compelling as it is heartbreaking. [ more ]

Ex-Feds Blast 9-11 Panel and Bush [13 Sept 2004] - A group of 25 former federal employees directly involved in the government's counterintelligence and counterterrorism programs held a press conference here this morning to lambaste both the 9-11 Commission and the Bush administration for failing to hold government officials accountable for failures leading up to 9-11.

Infamy: Pearl Harbor, 911 and the Coming Outrage [10 Sept 2004] - Were 19 hijackers armed with box cutters really responsible for the WTC/Pentagon carnage? Seems increasingly implausible, as does the administration's claim of no prior knowledge. Remember Bush's comment about watching the first airplane hit the WTC before the second airplane even made impact? What video feed does he have anyway? The rest of us sure didn't see that live on our TVs. [ more ]

Minnesota Governor Wants the Truth on 9/11 Air Defense [20 Aug 2004] - "How is it that these planes were able to be hijacked at half hour intervals, turned directly opposite the way they're supposed to be going and no bells went off, no emergency sirens went off, no fighter jets were scrambled? Just what the hell happened in that area of time?! And that's the part that troubles me about 9/11." - Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura [ more ]

The Sort of Patriot Act-Like Surveillance We Would Like to See [05 Aug 2004] - The kind of surveillance needed to make America safe is not what the Patriot Act authorized.

An open letter to 9/11 Chairman Thomas Kean from Sibel Edmonds [01 Aug 2004] - Unfortunately, I find your report seriously flawed in its failure to address serious intelligence issues that I am aware of, which have been confirmed, and which as a witness to the commission, I made you aware of. Thus, I must assume that other serious issues that I am not aware of were in the same manner omitted from your report. These omissions cast doubt on the validity of your report and therefore on its conclusions and recommendations. [ more ]
