Guns and Butter Interviews Paul Zarembka, Editor of 'The Hidden History of 9/11'
Zarembka will be interviewed today on his excellent 9/11 book, The
Hidden History of 9/11
. The one-hour broadcast will aired on Bonnie Faulkner's
KPFA program 'Guns and Butter: The Economics of Politics', where she has given
considerable attention to 9-11 on her program for many years..
The interview can be heard at 4 p.m. Eastern/1 p.m. Pacific, available at http://www.kpfa.org/
It will also be available as an archive thereafter at http://www.kpfa.org/node/34
More on The Hidden History of 9/11:
Information tends to flow centripetally, from the margins to the center, and
not vice versa, in the same way as sensations travel from our finger tips to
our brain and central nervous system. Paul Zarembka's Hidden History of 9-11,
doesn't subscribe to any one conspiracy theory, but it argues, persuasively,
that familiarity with the fault lines of the official story opens a reader to
a fundamental and necessary awareness. We may never know the full story of 9-11,
in the same way that we may never know the full story of the Kennedy assassinations,
but the awareness that we do have following these events provides us at the
very least with a healthy skepticism and a willingness to entertain the possibility
of there being counter-narratives that cannot be dismissed.

New paper at The Journal of 9/11 Studies by Prof. Graeme MacQueen
From Kevin Ryan
July 21, 2009
A new paper is available at The
Journal of 9/11 Studies. This is from Professor Graeme MacQueen, and is
called "Did the Earth Shake Before The South Tower Hit the Ground?"
Here is the abstract:
"In the debate over the collapses of the Twin Towers on 9/11, the shaking
of the earth that accompanied these collapses has played an important role.
This shaking registered clearly on seismographs. Less clear, however, are
its causes and the times it began. The National Institute of Standards and
Technology emphasizes the role of the debris from the collapsing buildings
in producing the seismic signals. In assessing NIST's hypothesis I focus
on the collapse of the South Tower and attempt to determine the time the collapse
began, the time the debris from the Tower struck the ground, and the temporal
relation of these events to the shaking of the earth that accompanied the
collapse. I consider both the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory's seismic
evidence and the evidence provided by a less studied form of seismic instrument,
the video camera. I also draw on witness testimony. I conclude that key statements
by NIST are false. Major shaking of the earth, and corresponding seismic signals,
started well before the debris hit the ground. In fact, it seems certain that
the shaking of the earth started before visible signs of building collapse.
This evidence is incompatible with the official NIST hypothesis of the cause
of the collapse of the Towers."

Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive? -- David Ray Griffin
Interview with David Ray Griffin about his new book, "Osama bin Laden Dead

Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation
Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation (Includes The
8 Traits of A Disinformationalist) by H. Michael Sweeney
copyright (c) 1997, 2000 All rights reserved
(Revised April 2000)
Posted July 18, 2009
Built upon Thirteen Techniques for Truth Suppression by David Martin,
the following may be useful to the initiate in the world of dealing with veiled
and half-truth, lies, and suppression of truth when serious crimes are studied
in public forums. This, sadly, includes every day news media, one of the worst
offenders with respect to being a source of disinformation. Where the crime
involves a conspiracy, or a conspiracy to cover up the crime, there will invariably
be a disinformation campaign launched against those seeking to uncover and expose
the truth and/or the conspiracy. There are specific tactics which disinfo artists
tend to apply, as revealed here. Also included with this material are seven
common traits of the disinfo artist which may also prove useful in identifying
players and motives.
The more a particular party fits the traits and is guilty of following the
rules, the more likely they are a professional disinfo artist with a vested
motive. People can be bought, threatened, or blackmailed into providing disinformation,
so even "good guys" can be suspect in many cases.
A rational person participating as one interested in the truth will evaluate
that chain of evidence and conclude either that the links are solid and conclusive,
that one or more links are weak and need further development before conclusion
can be arrived at, or that one or more links can be broken, usually invalidating
(but not necessarily so, if parallel links already exist or can be found, or
if a particular link was merely supportive, but not in itself key to) the argument.
The game is played by raising issues which either strengthen or weaken (preferably
to the point of breaking) these links. It is the job of a disinfo artist to
interfere with these evaluations... to at least make people think the links
are weak or broken when, in truth, they are not... or to propose alternative
solutions leading away from the truth. Often, by simply impeding and slowing
down the process through disinformation tactics, a level of victory is assured
because apathy increases with time and rhetoric.

September 11th Advocates Letters
PDF - Click Here
by Jon Gold
July 19, 2009
Over the years, 9/11 Family Members Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg, Patty Casazza, and Monica Gabrielle, or the September Eleventh Advocates, have written open letters about different issues concerning the 9/11 attacks. I have compiled every letter that I have (not every letter is written by all of them), and put them into one file for you to download. I figured that along with the report written by Lorie Van Auken and Mindy Kleinberg regarding how well the 9/11 Commission answered the 9/11 Family Steering Committee's questions, as well as the new report on the nano-thermite, this could be printed and handed out to people. Please spread this around, and thank you.

Why a 9/11 "Plotter" Deserves a Re-Trial
By Bruce Crumley
July 19, 2009
It isn't easy to have sympathy for Frenchman Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person
convicted in connection with the September 11 terror attacks. During his trial,
Moussaoui pledged his allegiance to Osama bin Laden and prayed that al-Qaeda
succeeds in its violent jihad against the U.S; he also mocked the families of
9/11 victims and dared the court to inflict the harshest punishment for the
crimes which, after veering erratically between denial and advocacy, he finally
took responsibility for. In May 2006, a jury decided against the death penalty
but sent Moussaoui, now 41, to life imprisonment and near total isolation in
ADX Supermax prison.
Now Moussaoui says he regrets pleading guilty. But, he has a problem: U.S. law does not allow those who have taken that route to appeal their cases. His only shot at winning a lighter sentence is the July 14 decision by a federal appeals court in Virginia to re-hear arguments that the government had failed to turn over key evidence to Moussaoui and his lawyer that might have helped in his defense. As politically untenable as it may seem, President Barack Obama should support Moussaoui's efforts to win another trial.

Specter questions Sotomayor on 9/11 lawsuit
By Chris Mondics
Inquirer Staff Writer
Jul. 17, 2009
Sen. Arlen Specter suggested during Judge Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearing
yesterday that the Obama administration sought to block Supreme Court review
of lawsuits blaming Saudi Arabia for the Sept. 11 attacks for fear of offending
an important ally.
...At yesterday's hearing, Specter said: "There was a case in which the Supreme
Court denied certiorari just a couple of weeks ago involving claims for damages
brought by survivors of victims of Sept. 11 against certain individuals in Saudi
Arabia. The executive branch interposed objections to having that case decided
because of the sensitivity of matters with Saudi Arabia.
"Don't you think that this is the kind of case the Supreme Court should

Did the real 'cyber 9/11' happen on 9/11?
The Corbett Report
17 July, 2009
Government sources immediately began blaming North Korea for the recent cyberterror
attacks on South Korea and the U.S., despite having no
evidence to back up those claims. Now, an examination of the evidence by
independent computer experts show that the attack seems to have been coordinated
from the UK. The hysterical media coverage in the attack's wake, however,
echoing the government line that it was likely the work of North Korea, served
to cement in the minds of many that this was an act of cyberwarfare.
The idea that this surprisingly unsophisticated attack could have come from a well-organized, hostile state or terrorist group comes as a blessing in disguise to those groups, agencies and advisors who have been calling for greater and greater federal snooping powers in the name of stopping a "cyber 9/11" from happening.
The "cyber 9/11" meme stretches back almost to 9/11 itself. Back in 2003, Mike McConnell, the ex-director of the National Security Agency (NSA), was fearmongering over the possibility of a cyber attack "equivalent to the attack on the World Trade Center" if a new institution were not created to oversee cyber security. Since then, report after report has continued to use the horror of 9/11 as a way of raising public hysteria over "cyber terrorism," a subject more often associated with juvenile hackers and lone misfits than radical terrorist organizations.

Judge: Airlines can't question FBI in 9/11 suits
By Harry R. Weber (AP)
July 17, 2009
ATLANTA -- A federal judge ruled Thursday that airlines and other companies
in the industry that are being sued by families of terrorism victims can't question
FBI agents about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The defendants wanted to depose the agents and sought access to other evidence
related to the investigation of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people
in order to show at trial that the government's failure to catch the terrorists
and prevent the attacks mitigates and excuses any alleged fault on the aviation
The government objected.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein in New York said the defendants
have also argued that the terrorists likely would have succeeded even if the
defendants had exercised due care.
"The issues to be tried relate to the acts and omissions of the aviation
defendants, not the government," Hellerstein wrote in his ruling. "The
government's failures to detect and abort the terrorists' plots would not affect
the aviation defendants' potential liability."

Cindy Sheehan, Statement of Support of NYCCAN
On April 4th, 2004, my son Casey was killed serving the United States Army in Iraq during the illegal occupation started by the Bush Administration.
That illegal occupation was made possible because of the attacks that took place on September 11th, 2001, resulting in the deaths of 2,973 people.
Since that horrid day, victims' family members have been doing everything within their power to seek justice and accountability for what happened, with little to no success. It is shameful that almost 8 years after the fact, they have been denied this. The official 9/11 commission report was a sham and a mockery of justice, not justice.
Currently, there is an effort underway in New York City to get a new investigation
onto the ballot by this November. The New York City Coalition for Accountability
) is currently attempting
to get enough signatures to make this happen, and they need your help. I wholeheartedly
support and endorse this effort.
Please do what you can to support this effort, and thank you.

Bill Doyle, Father of Joseph Doyle, Endorses a New Investigation in NYC
July 15, 2009
For eight years I have lobbied and supported investigations and litigation
in an effort to learn the whole truth behind the death of my son Joseph and
the murder of so many others. I've always been hopeful we'd get the answers
we deserve and that we'd see accountability exacted within the halls of Congress,
the White House, DoD, CIA, FBI, State and Justice Departments.
However, there are still too few answers to too many questions even as promotions
and medals are handed out rather than pink slips or prosecutions. Excessive
secrecy and redactions still cover-up the truth and leave us in the dark about:
terrorist financing from still unnamed foreign nations, suspicious pre-9/11
stock market activity, pre-9/11 warnings to the President, the Attorney General
and others, the infamous 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Report, The Holy Land
Trial, Riggs Bank wire transfers, faulty NYFD radios that didn't work in '93,
Ground zero toxins breathed by thousands, a 9/11 narrative derived from torture
induced testimony, etc., etc. I could go on and on.
No American who believes in his country should settle for being in the dark
about all this over seven years after the event. I won't and I can't for the
sake of my son and for the country. For this reason I feel compelled to support
a new investigation in NYC led by family members and others who will produce
an accounting we can be proud of.
