Mike Berger


Mike Berger was born and raised in New York, about 20 minutes from Manhattan. He earned a degree in Sociology with a focus on human motivation, currently calls St. Louis home, is married and owns a plastic recycling company and video production company. Mike enjoyed visiting the Manhattan to watch the building of the World Trade Center complex. On Sept.11th, he had family who lived and worked in lower Manhattan. His cousin actually saw the first plane fly over his head while walking his dog in lower Manhattan. More than 14 months passed before Mike began to question the official story. After reading about significant purchases of put options on American and United airlines as well as several companies that occupied large portions of the WTC Towers, implying that identifiable parties may have profited from foreknowledge of the attacks, denial transformed into curiosity. He began researching the critical issues surrounding the failure of government officials to perform their sworn duties and defend us from attack. After all, according to George Tenet, "the system was blinking red." What went wrong? Why were we so unprepared for the attacks in light of numerous, documented, specific warnings? Why have we not held a single person accountable at any level, considering the magnitude of these failures?

More than 2 years of investigation resulted in a series of documentaries currently in production. The first, Improbable Collapse, examines how 3 steel framed buildings collapsed on 9/11 although no steel framed building had ever collapsed from fire. Ever.

"Never turn your back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!" -Winston Churchill

Brian Bogart


After the events of September 11, 2001 , Brian Bogart (founder of the 2005-2006 CampUS Strike for Peace Campaign and the progressive think tank IntelligentFuture) brought to a crescendo his lifelong quest for peace and justice by designing a flexible but intensive transdisciplinary masters degree program in Peace Studies. In so doing, he avoided Pentagon funding (United States Institute of Peaceboard members include several neoconservatives and Department of Defense officials), and has become a leading expert on the history of conflict as America 's economic engine.

Brian's work focuses on the disastrous policies of The Truman administration, its manufacture and escalation of the Cold War for the benefit of the industrialists of war, and the subsequent maintenance of this arrangement through the end of the Cold War to this moment -- a condition that perpetuates conflict to sell weaponry (America's top industry since 1950), and from which the world continues to suffer immensely.

Brian is currently compiling a book of declassified records chronicling the manufacture of the Cold War and war on terror, and the rise of the dispersed vendor phenomenon: the dispersal of each weapons program to all 50 states, which economically motivates state leaders to continuously approve such programs.

"Those of us who were outraged by our involvement in Vietnam should be outraged that the Vietnam War never ended. In Iraq and elsewhere, we are not repeating Vietnam ; driven by industrial purchase orders, we are continuing a single conquest for profit with the same justification -- a threat made larger than the truth. If we do not advance our Founding vision for peace, we will perish by advancing our technology for war."

Ian R. Crane


Chair – 911 Truth Campaign ( UK & Ireland )

"……… history cannot be permanently falsified; the myth cannot stand up to the scrutiny of research; the sinister web will be brought into the light and torn to pieces, however artfully it has been spun."  

~Dr. Jakob Ruchti - 1915.

In Chicago, Ian will present his research into the Madrid Bombings (3/11/04 – exactly 911 days after 9/11 ) and the London Bombings on 7th July of last year (7/7). Research which indicates that the scriptwriters of 9/11 contributed to the planning for 3/11 & 7/7...

…and he doesn't mean Osama Bin Laden or Al Qaeda!

Prior to his retirement from the corporate arena, Ian enjoyed a career of 25 years in telecommunications and international oilfield services, a career that provided the opportunity to live and work in the U.K., Continental Europe, the Middle East and Houston, Tx.

An ex-oilfield executive, Ian now lectures and writes on the geopolitical webs that have been spun since the events of 9/11, with particular focus on US hegemony and the US agenda for control of global oil & gas resources.

Chris Emery


Owner / Executive producer with OTR Films, LLC of Oklahoma City, Chris has worked in the media industry for nearly 25 years. Starting as a freelance sports photographer with NCAA football and the NFL, he acquired a hands on understanding of boilerplate network news, well researched news and how the two rarely mesh together.

In January of 2000 a media colleague convinced Chris to study the facts of the Oklahoma City bombing that corporate media and the DOJ chose to suppress. Nearly six years later Chris has no regrets about his decision to relocate from Dallas/Fort Worth to Oklahoma City to work on his latest project -- a documentary film about the OKC bombing.


"In almost identical terms with the events of 9/11, the people of Oklahoma City have been lied to, ignored and patronized for the past eleven years by several top supervisors within the FBI, the DOJ and the Oklahoma - US Congressional delegation who turned tail and ran away from the facts of the OKC bombing as fast as possible.

The investigation of this case was nothing more than a half baked farce and an insult towards the victims family members, survivors, law enforcement and the OKC federal grand jury who wanted all the perpetrators captured and prosecuted. In the end, why should we be asked to remember the deaths of our loved ones in a lie?"

Chris volunteers his time with the Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee [OKBIC] - www.okcbombing.org and several other top rate investigative journalists including Mr. Pat Shannan - www.patshannan.com. Mr. Emery will present irrefutable evidence showing the Oklahoma City Bombing was a trial run for the 9/11 tragedy.

Sander Hicks


Sander Hicks is an independent publisher, community organizer, and writer. He founded Soft Skull Press in 1992, and won awards for his work there. He gained serious national attention when he stood up to the Bush machine in 1999 by republishing the controversial Bush bio, Fortunate Son. He was featured alongside the book's author, Jim Hatfield, in the Cinemax/HBO documentary "Horns and Halos." He ran Soft Skull until a leave of absence in 2001.

After a year-long "recharge" time, he returned to New York City to start Vox Pop/DKMC, New York City's only community-empowering bookstore, cafe, and media machine. At home in Brooklyn, Vox Pop serves delicious fair-trade certified coffee, with workers organized by Local 660, Retail Workers' Union, IWW. As a publisher, Vox Pop publishes the kind of investigative non-fiction that is much in demand these days. Half the time, the first print run of a Vox Pop book will sell out within four weeks.

Sander Hicks is a playwright, a musician, and a reporter. He grew up in the Washington, DC suburbs, where his teenage hero was Ian MacKaye, of the band Fugazi. The son of a World Bank economist, Hicks understands the core mission of international development, but remains staunchly critical of the gross shortcomings of corporate globalization. He has marched against the World Bank/IMF, despite the unfortunate and painful family friction this has caused. He graduated from Eugene Lang College, New School University, in 1993. His political art-punk band, White Collar Crime, played Warped Tour, in 2001.

As a journalist, Hicks broke new ground on the 9/11 attack for New York Press, Long Island Press, GNN.tv, and "INN World Report" television. He confronts a neo-con and Democrat cover-up regarding 9/11 in his book, The Big Wedding, which has 10,000 copies in print. His next book, Meet the Future Head-On: Rediscovering America's Progressive Mainstream (Vox Pop, Fall '06) will explore "the progressive spirit at the core of the beliefs of a majority of Americans." This character is ignored by the "politics of death" practiced by the outdated "dinosaur" political parties.

Hicks takes great joy in his faith, as a progressive, practicing Catholic Christian, in the direct-action tradition of Fr. Dan Berrigan, S.J. Fr. John Dear, S.J.,, and the venerable Dorothy Day. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Holley and their son, Coleman. (More cool family pix here.)

Steven E. Jones


Steven E. Jones is a Professor of Physics at 30,000-student Brigham Young University in Provo , Utah.  His Ph.D research was performed at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California and his Ph.D is from Vanderbilit University .   During his 28-year career as a physicist, his research has centered on fusion and solar energy as well as archaeometry (the application of physics methods to archaeology).  He has taught graduate-level archaeometry at BYU, and he says this work in particular prepared him for studies of evidences of possible foul-play at the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 .

 “In archaeometry, we use advanced physics methods to determine what happened in the past from available evidence.  That is just what I'm pursuing in 9-11 research.   When I saw the WTC 7 collapse videos, I immediately suspected something was amiss with the official explanation… but I did not see this video until the springtime of 2005.  From that day to this I have vigorously studied data regarding the 9/11 collapses and lack of air defenses and other anomalies.”

She was a political reporter in Washington, D.C. for eight years. Shortly after moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, she remembered her first dream, which gave the ending for a screenplay she was writing. Later, her dreams and those of others imparted insights into the stolen 2000 presidential election and then tips that 9/11 was an inside job. As a result, dreams have guided her reporting about health, self-expression, and politics. She gave presentations on the 9/11 Cover-up Commission at the San Francisco and Toronto Citizen's Inquiries. Joyce offers tutorials and classes on using dream wisdom for social change.


Annie Machon


Annie Machon, along with her partner David Shayler (below), spent over 5 years working as intelligence officers for MI5, the UK security service. During their years at the heart of Britain's secret state, they saw an alarming catalogue of mistakes, cover-ups and crimes, which led to the deaths of innocent people.

In particular, David had personal experience of a major false-flag terrorist operation. His counterparts in MI6 officially briefed him on a plot to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi of Libya. This consisted of MI6 officers paying associates of Bin Laden over $100,000 in an illegal operation which was not sanctioned by the British government. The attack went wrong and innocent people died.

In the wake of this operation David and Annie left MI5 and blew the whistle. As a result they have spent 3 years on the run and in hiding in Europe, seen friends, family, and journalists arrested and persecuted, and David has been to prison, not once, but twice. Further intelligence has since emerged that proves the Gaddafi plot went ahead as they described, but the British government continues to refuse to hold an inquiry. They see the Gaddafi plot as one of a sequence of false-flag terrorist operations designed to give the UK and USA the pretext to attack oil-rich Middle Eastern countries. Annie will be addressing the conference on this and other examples of the crimes of the intelligence services.

More information is under David Shayler's entry.

Janette MacKinlay


Janette MacKinlay watched the events of 9/11 unfold out the window of her apt. located directly across the street from the World Trade Center complex. She and her partner remained inside their apartment and survived the blast which burst their windows and flooded their apt. with dust and debris upon the collapse of Tower Two.

After staying in a hotel for five weeks, while attempting to recover personal belongings, Janette returned to her home in Oakland, Ca. to recover from the emotional effects of the trauma.

The journey to recovery initially involved art, and she had exhibitions featuring a memorial series of flower arrangements using her skills in Ikebana, Japanese flower arranging. She documented her experiences in a book called, "Fortunate, A Personal Diary of 9/11."

Her recovery also involved educating herself regarding the who, what and why's of 9/11. Upon seeing the 9/11 Commissioners present their report at a Commonwealth Club event in San Francisco, she was convinced there was a coverup and became active in the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.

Janette has now returned to Ground Zero apt. and continues to be active in the truth movement. She recently organized an event in Oakland called "Question 9/ll; A Call To Activism".

September 11th Revisited
is perhaps the most riveting film ever made about the destruction of the World Trade Center. This is a powerful documentary which features eyewitness accounts and archived news footage that was shot on September 11, 2001 but never replayed on television. Featuring interviews with eyewitnesses & firefighters, along with expert analysis by Professor Steven E. Jones, Professor David Ray Griffin, MIT Engineer Jeffrey King, and Professor James H. Fetzer.

Jesse Richard


Editor, TvNewsLIES.org - Host TVNL Radio

TvNewsLIES.org is on of the premier Internet resources exposing the massive deception perpetrated by the American corporate media on the American public. By examining how media deception works TvNewsLIES.org's editor, Jesse Richard, has established that the American corporate media is in fact the tool used by the ruling elite to shape public opinion.

The events of September 11th serve as the prime example of how the controllers of the corporate media distract the public and hide the crimes witch they commit. Without a legitimate news media democracy can not survive. Jesse Richard proposes that we render the ruling elite's weapons of mass deception useless by education the public about the techniques of media deception.

Aaron Russo


Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, producer Aaron Russo began promoting rock and roll shows at local theaters while still a high school student. Aaron helped create the careers of many legendary performers, such as Led Zeppelin. Aaron was responsible for bringing them to America for the first time. He also promoted some of the 60's most successful rock acts, including The Who, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.

Over the past years, Russo has received numerous awards for his achievements. They include a Grammy, a Tony, an Emmy for producing the best television special of the year "OL' Red Hair is Back," starring Dustin Hoffman and Bette Midler, plus many gold and platinum records. To date his films have been nominated for six Academy Awards, as well as seven Golden Globes. His films have won three Golden Globes, as well as the Image Award.

He is now writing, producing, and directing a new feature film/documentary titled "America...From Freedom To Fascism". The film is an expose of the Internal Revenue Service, and proves conclusively there is no law requiring an American citizen to pay a direct unapportioned Tax on their labor. The film is very provocative and is receiving standing ovations at its previews.

In 1996 Russo made a political video entitled "Aaron Russo's Mad as Hell", which was a hit throughout America. He was asked by the people of Nevada to run for governor and he made the decision to do so. The powers that be in Nevada scoffed at his decision to run for governor but were very surprised when he finished second with nearly thirty percent of the vote, beating the sitting lieutenant governor. In January of 2004, he declared his candidacy for the Libertarian Party's nomination for President of the Untied States. At the Convention in May, Russo won the first two ballots, but not a majority. He was defeated on the third and final ballot. He then channelled his energy into writing/directing America: From Freedom to Fascism.

During this time,while managing Underwriters Laboratories (UL) water testing division, he noticed a number of inconsistencies related to UL's involvement in the World Trade Center investigation being performed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In November of 2004, after attempts to obtain answers from UL's top management, he allowed his questions to be made public and, as a result, lost his job at UL. Since that time, Mr. Ryan has written several essays on the subject and has also spoken out within his local community.

Ralph Schoenman


Long active in political life, Ralph Schoenman has been involved in international resistance to imperialism and active in the workers' movement in the United States. He was Secretary General of the International Tribunal on U.S. War Crimes in Indochina. He spent seven months in Bolivia in 1967 and was imprisoned there after the death of Che Guevara. He worked with Malcolm X with respect to the battle for the Congo and in the anti-imperialist struggles of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. He negotiated the release of political prisoners in many countries. He conducted one-on-one negotiations with over thirty heads of state and their deputies on matters of international affairs.

Ralph Schoenman was a president of the International Tribunal Against the Debt, Lima, Peru and assisted in the formation of the Africa Tribunal in Johannesburg, South Africa and Los Angeles, CA. He was Director of the Who Killed Kennedy Committee?, formed in 1964. Its President was Bertrand Russell and its members and sponsors included Field Marshal Sir Claude Auchinleck, Arnold Toynbee, Professor Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sir Compton Mackenzie, Lord Boyd Orr, Vanessa Redgrave, Caroline Wedgwood-Benn among prominent others.

He and Mya Shone were directors of the Committee in Defense of the Lebanese and Palestinian Peoples during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, of the Palestine Campaign, which at the time of the first Intifada called for an end to all aid to apartheid Israel and for a democratic secular Palestine, and of Workers and Artists for "Solidarity" (that is, Solidarnarsc, the Polish Workers' movement). They were the North American organizers of the International Conference Against Repression in Haiti that took place in Port-au-Prince during the oppressive Raoul Cedras regime. He was a founder of the Committee for Artistic and Intellectual Freedom in Iran and spent seven months in Iran during the revolution against the Shah. Ralph Schoenman and Mya Shone were founders and editorial members for ten years of the labor and socialist newspaper "The Organizer."

Ralph Schoenman's analysis and discussion of the events of 9/11 and the invasion of Afghanistan, "World Trade Center: Uncensored History," left WBAI's audience riveted to their radios waiting for the next installment and led to the broadcast of "Taking Aim with Ralph Schoenman and Mya Shone," now in its fourth year of production.

Pat Shannan


Investigative reporter Pat Shannan has been on top of the OKC case since the day it happened, and the title of his new DVD presentation says it all: "OKC Bombing -- The Forerunner to 9/11." Mr. Shannan will outline other cases in recent history to show that the facts and evidence never did fit the official stories, and how a cooperative news media allows the deception to continue.


David Shayler-- Cancelled

PLEASE NOTE: David was scheduled as a keynote speaker Saturday night with Annie Machon, his partner. Because of his courageous actions as a whistleblower, David faced insurmountable difficulties in securing a visa to travel to the States for this conference. Fortunately, Annie is still scheduled.


David Shayler and Annie Machon (see Annie Machon entry, above) both spent over 5 years working for MI5, the UK security service. During their years at the heart of Britain 's secret state, they saw an alarming catalogue of mistakes, cover-ups and crimes, which led to the deaths of innocent people.

In particular, David had personal experience of a false-flag terrorist operation. His counterparts in MI6 officially briefed him on a plot to assassinate Colonel Gaddafi of Libya. This consisted of MI6 officers paying associates of Bin Laden over $100,000 in an illegal operation which was not sanctioned by the British government. The attack went wrong and innocent people died.

In the wake of this operation David and Annie left MI5 and blew the whistle. As a result they have spent 3 years on the run and in hiding in Europe , seen friends, family, and journalists arrested and persecuted, and David has been to prison, not once, but twice. Further intelligence has since emerged that proves the Gaddafi plot went ahead as David described, but the British government continues to refuse to hold an inquiry. David sees the Gaddafi plot as one of a sequence of false-flag terrorist operations designed to give the UK and USA the pretext to attack oil-rich Middle Eastern countries. He will be addressing the conference on this and other examples of the crimes of the intelligence services.

He appreciates the the US nonviolence movement and criticizes it for being unnecessarily weak. His natural penchant for getting in trouble is explained by his need to ask questions his colleagues don't want to think about. He expects to go to jail over 9/11 this fall.
