- Among almost a dozen Russian participants in the debate
that will be televised Friday evening in Moscow, one of the most compelling
speakers was a Russian cosmonaut who observed the 9/11 events from his
post on the International Space Station in earth orbit. This cosmonaut
recounts in the telecast that, as he watched the immense plume of smoke
spread from New York out over the Atlantic, he took a large number of
photos and films which were sent automatically to both Houston and Moscow.
"We have been studying these images very, very, carefully,"
commented the cosmonaut pointedly, "and we have seen some highly
- 9/11 In Moscow and Elsewhere
- On 9/11 I've been in Moscow, signing books, speaking
at Round Table of the Russia's news agency and the Moscow University
and watching the prime time screening of an alternative 9/11 movie on
the Channel One of Russian TV.
- This screening was an additional asymmetric Russian response
to the American administration's anti-Russian PR offensive of recent days.
- Another 9/11 attraction was a public reading by Vsevolod
Emelin, one of the best modern Russian poets, of his Belloc-like ironic
poems commemorating this day, with the punchline: "People rejoiced
all over the world that America was finally screwed". Read it in
Russian on http://www.nbp-info.ru/nbart/emelin/ An American spoof on
the same topic is at the bottom of this email.
- Meanwhile, there is a new stunning explanation of 9/11,
using tactics of Father Brown, this superb priest detective of Chesterton.
Read about it below. In my view, it is first ever plausible explanation
of WHY, let alone HOW.
- But now back to the Russian screening and other 9/11
- "Socialist Euro-parliamentarian Giulietto Chiesa
has shown, in February 2008 in EU Parliament, the film "ZERO"
about USA government conspiracy in 9-11 events. Despite personal invitation
to all 785 EU parliamentarians, and to nearly a thousand journalists,
only 6 parliamentarians, and no one Italian journalist, came to see the
film. Chiesa attributed the lack of interest of EU parliamentarians and
of EU media to the influence and control of information by USA ... Until
now ZERO has no distributing agency in EU."
- Russian TV Prime Time To Air 9-11 Truth Film
- Italian film-maker Giulietto Chiesa, who was in Berlin
for a screening of his documentary which questions the official US version
of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has called for an international tribunal
to probe events. Chiesa was in Berlin at the weekend for a screening
of his film which features, among others, novelist Gore Vidal and playwright
Dario Fo as well as retired American professor of philosophy David Ray
Griffin who advances conspiracy theories that contradict mainstream accounts
of events of 11 September, 2001. Federal Aviation Administration controllers,
US Air Force pilots, military commanders and physicists also appear in
the critical documentary, which the director hopes will create "political
awareness" of the "faulty" official investigation into
the events by the 9/11 Commission. "Some of the individuals appearing
in the film are former FBI and CIA agents, people who have in a sense
taken a very big risk in speaking out. I am very grateful to them because
they have done a big job," said Chiesa. "The film would not
have been possible without them," he said, adding that ZERO had been
seen in France and Belgium at individual screenings, and by more than
20,000 people in Italy. But the film so far has not gained a distributor
- Pushing for an international tribunal
- Chiesa, one of Italy's most respected journalists and
a La Stampa foreign correspondent for more than 20 years, told his Berlin
audience an 9/11 international tribunal could serve a useful purpose.
"If feelings were strong enough a positive result could be obtained,
but it would not happen immediately. So far it's been the US administration
that has won the information fight and obtained their result - unfortunately,"
Chiesa said. "Our task is to inform millions of people of the true
- Everybody should be involved in this struggle with a
tribunal or commission helping once we win approval for the idea,"
- In an interview with German news agency dpa, Chiesa,
a European parliamentary deputy, said Russian television is to give prime
time airing to his film on the eve of this week's seventh anniversary
of the attacks in New York and Washington. "That means that some
30 million Russian citizens will learn the truth about what happened,
which is a very big result for me."
- Chiesa, whose documentary was first screened to a large
German audience at the Goethe Institute in Munich in May, was clearly
delighted at his reception in Berlin. "It's important that so many
people have shown up," he said. One of a panel of six experts debating
the 9/11 topic in Berlin, Chiesa said he was eager for his film to gain
more public support and become a "multiplicator" across Germany.
"If that happens it means we are making politics in the right sense
of the word." Critics question government version of attacks.
- Andreas von Buelow, a controversial former German minister
of technology, and ex-state secretary in the Defense Ministry, was among
the Berlin participants who said further investigation was needed into
9/11. He told dpa it was "one of life's characteristics that governments
are prone to lie in order to achieve their agendas. The Americans told
us that in Iraq, Saddam Hussein had something to do with al-Qaeda, which
was absolutely untrue. Even the CIA knew this," he said. "Then,
they told us that Saddam Hussein was preparing weapons of mass destruction,
which was also untrue, so they have been lying all over the place and
are still fighting there. Meanwhile a million people have been killed."
Asked if there was any prospect of a policy change once the next US president
was elected, he replied bluntly "No!"
- Ivashov, Chiesa, Meyssan, Russian Experts To Debate 9-11
On Russian TV Friday 9-9-8
- Thierry Meyssan reports from Moscow that he and other
leading international 9/11 truth experts have completed taping a television
debate which will be telecast on the first national program of Russian
state television this coming Friday, September 12. This no- holds barred,
free-wheeling debate, featuring strongly divergent opinions about what
really happened on and about September 11, 2001, will be shown in conjunction
with the documentary film Zero, produced and directed by Chiesa and Franco
Fracassi of Telemaco Productions in Rome. Russians are thus about to receive
an unprecedented evening of 9/11 truth. The telecast will go out in
the middle of prime time. Among the participants, General Leonid Ivashov
was the commander of the Russian armed forces on September 11, 2001, and
has been a leading critic of the US official version. A leading strategic
thinker for his country, Ivashov is currently a fellow of the Strategic
Culture Foundation (fondsk.ru) in Moscow. Giulietto Chiesa is a member
of the European Parliament in Brussels, representing the region around
Asti in northwest Italy. Chiesa has been the leading spokesman for 9/11
truth issues in the European Parliament, and has been the prime mover
behind the documentary film Zero, as well as the collection of essays
by the same name which has also attracted much attention in Italy since
being published in the late summer of 2007.
- Thierry Meyssan, the founder and leader of the Voltaire
Network in Paris, was one of the first critics of the US official story
about 9/11. He is the author of several books, including 9/11: The Big
Lie, and Pentagate. He also organized the Axis for Peace conference in
Brussels in November 2005. Among almost a dozen Russian participants
in the debate that will be televised Friday evening in Moscow, one of
the most compelling speakers was a Russian cosmonaut who observed the
9/11 events from his post on the International Space Station in earth
orbit. This cosmonaut recounts in the telecast that, as he watched the
immense plume of smoke spread from New York out over the Atlantic, he
took a large number of photos and films which were sent automatically
to both Houston and Moscow. "We have been studying these images very,
very, carefully," commented the cosmonaut pointedly, "and we
have seen some highly interesting things."
- The host for the debate stressed that this landmark telecast
did not imply that the Kremlin administration of President Medvedev and
Prime Minister Putin was officially espousing any particular point of
view concerning 9/11, but rather reflected a commitment to free and open
debate. Nevertheless, observers in the Russian capital sense a far-reaching
change of mood by the Russian government in the wake of the August 7-8
genocidal attack on South Ossetia by the Georgian dictator and US satellite
Saakashvili. The Russians, according to this view, are through with doing
favors for the US, especially in regard to Washington's official myths
about 9/11 and the war on terror, and this telecast will deliver that
message in a clear and unmistakable way.
- And now for the new all-explaining document on 9/11
- From Ken Freeland:
- In the tireless research and reviews which we as truthers
are engaged in, we come across many helpful guides to our understanding
of the mystery of 9/11. But it is only on the rarest of occasions that
we encounter a piece of research that is so clear, so cogent in its breathtaking
sweep and its ability to connect the dots, that it revolutionizes our
understanding of these events and moves us a quantum step ahead in our
ability to present a solid argument to the public. The piece referenced
below is such a gem. After reading it, I would find it impossible to
hold a serious conversation with anyone about the subject of 9/11 who
had not absorbed it. I should state at the outset that the piece doesn't
do much to settle questions of the technical details of 911.
- In fact, the author assumes that all three of the buildings
were hit by planes. But this is really irrelevant, as the piece is not
about technical questions, and can stand or fall without respect to exactly
how the attacks were carried out. This piece is totally about the motivation
for 9/11. Remember, for every crime, you must establish a motive and
a means. Here the motive is explicated like nowhere else, and when we
consider the specific buildings which were "attacked" (including
Building 6), this "theory" best satisfies Ockham's Razor it
is the most cogent explanation of why these particular buildings, including
the specific Pentagon offices of Naval Intelligence, were the targets
of the attack.
- I entreat all of you to download this pdf document and
read it immediately. I won't promise you that is an easy read. The last
part about the banking issues is particularly abstruse for laymen.
- But I will promise you that you will find nowhere else
such a complete explanation of the events of 9/11. I should also mention
that I was helpfully prepared for this explanation by already having
read Gold Warriors, which is the best possible background for some of
the details here alluded to (the Golden Lily fortune of Japanese War loot
expropriated by the CIA for its clandestine operations). If you have
any difficulty understanding this part of the exposition, you will find
that book is worth its weight in gold. Understandably, its authors are
still in hiding. I was also prepared for this explanation by early exposure
to the theories of Eastman et al. as to the reasons for the 911 attacks,
which are vindicated here, though with considerably more elaboration and
- Collateral Damage: U.S. Covert Operations and the Terrorist
Attacks on September 11
- Initially, it is difficult to see a pattern to the destruction
of September 11th other than the total destruction of the World Trade
Center, a segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss
of 2,993 lives. However, if the perceived objective of the attack is re-defined
from its commonly suggested 'symbolic' designation as either 'a terrorist
attack' or a 'new Pearl Harbor,' and one begins by looking at it as purely
a crime with specific objectives(as opposed to a political action), there
is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction. The September11th
attacks were meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated
by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon
were destroyed on September 11th.1 After six years of research, this report
presents corroborating evidence which supports their claims, and proposes
a new rationale for the September 11thattacks. The hypothesis of this
report is: the attacks of September 11th were intended to cover-up the
clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September
1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which
'unknown' western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with
a focus on oil and gas. The attacks of September 11th also served to derail
multiple Federal investigations away from crimes associated with the 1991
covert operation. In doing so, the attacks were justified under the cardinal
rule of intelligence: "protect your resources" and consistent
with a modus operandi of sacrificing lives for a greater cause.
- The New Pearl Harbor Revisited: 9/11, the Cover-Up, and
- David Ray Griffin
- PUBLISHER'S BOOK DESCRIPTION
- In 2004, David Ray Griffin published The New Pearl Harbor:
Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11. Translated
into several languages, it helped spark a worldwide movement demanding
"9/11 truth." Even as it became increasingly outdated, it continued
to be widely cited as the best introduction to the issues.
- Griffin has now written The New Pearl Harbor Revisited,
which provides a chapter-by-chapter updating of the information provided
in that earlier book. It shows that the case against the official account
constructed by independent researchers---who now include architects, engineers,
physicists, pilots, politicians, and former military officers---is far
stronger than it was in 2004, leaving no doubt that 9/11 was a false-flag
operation, designed to give the Bush-Cheney administration a pretext to
attack oil-rich Muslim nations.
- Taken together, these two books provide everything one
needs to make an informed decision about 9/11---whether one is a journalist,
a political leader, a religious leader, or an ordinary citizen concerned
about truth, democracy, and the rule of law.
- MORE ENDORSEMENTS
- "Nowhere is it clearer that truth is now considered
quaint, obsolete here in Washington, than in the disingenuous non-answers
to questions about the cavernous holes in the official version of 9/11--and
the flippant attempts to marginalize intrepid souls like David Ray Griffin,
branded "blasphemous" by the likes of Tucker Carlson. Facing
straight into this rancid wind, Griffin now provides a definitive account
that updates and integrates his earlier findings. Will Congress ever authorize
an honest investigation of the seminal event of our time?"---Ray
McGovern, former CIA analyst and presidential briefer
- "This latest book by David Ray Griffin is scholarly
research at its best. Meticulous empirical investigation and painstaking
analysis are combined to refute the official 9/11 narrative. Every event
surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001, is subjected to close
scrutiny, ultimately with a view to revealing the lies and upholding the
truth. In this fascinating and skillfully researched exposé, Griffin
demonstrates unequivocally that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job."---Michel
Chossudovsky, Professor of Economics and author of America's War on Terrorism
- ORDERING INFORMATION
- The New Pearl Harbor Revisited can be purchased for $20
at bookstores or Interlink Books (1-800-238-LINK) or for $13.60 at Amazon.com
It should be available at Amazon by September 11.
- And now for something completely frivolous:
- The Onion - 4th September 2008 / Volume 44, Issue 36
- Cheney waits until last minute to buy September 11 gifts
- WASHINGTON - Busy dealing with important paperwork and
other vice presidential duties in recent weeks, Dick Cheney was forced
to put off until the last minute a cherished annual tradition: gift- shopping
for his favorite holiday, 9/11.
- "I looked at the calendar yesterday, and I couldn't
believe my eyes -- 9/11 is almost here!" a rosy-cheeked Cheney said
upon returning to the White House Sunday with two giant bags overflowing
with gift- wrapped boxes and big red bows. "It's the most wonderful
time of the year."
- A copy of the card Cheney sends to all his family,
friends, and dear widows of 9/11
- Although Cheney himself has never received any Sept.
11 gifts, with the exception of a pair of silk pajamas from his wife and
a second term in office, he insisted that he gets more joy from giving
than receiving. According to Cheney, Sept. 11 is a time to reflect and
give thanks for all the benefits and blessings 9/11 has given him in
- Cheney, however, lamented the fact that he has seen a
recent decline in the nation's 9/11 spirit.
- "I don't know what's happened," Cheney said.
"Less than seven years ago, 9/11 seemed like a huge event for every
American. Back then, on Sept. 11 morning, everyone would dart downstairs
at 8:46 a.m. sharp, shouting and screaming, and the ground outside would
be blanketed in the most beautiful gray as far as the eye could see.
- "I especially loved the streets of New York during
this season -- the lights, the sounds, people rushing every which way,
the sidewalks so crowded you could barely move, the wide-eyed looks on
the people's faces. The whole New York skyline was lit up like a Christmas
- 'Going to be the best September 11 ever'
- "Sometimes, in all the hustle and bustle of the
season, it's easy to forget the true meaning of Sept. 11," Cheney
said. "Sept. 11 is not about fancy 9/11 parades, or big 9/11 office
parties. In fact, it's not even just about two buildings crumbling to
the ground and leaving thousands of innocent people dead."
- "No," Cheney continued. "No, 9/11 is about
the warm feeling you get when you help an elderly woman cross the street
and then whisper to her that the terrorists can strike at any moment.
9/11 is about the satisfaction of telling people to do things and then
them doing it -- not because they want to, but because they are afraid
to do otherwise. 9/11 is about removing Saddam Hussein from power. But
most of all, 9/11 is about love."
- Cheney said he plans to spend a quiet Sept. 11 at home
this year, during which he will exchange gifts with loved ones and watch
his taped VHS footage of the old 9/11 TV specials while he smiles and
- "I have a feeling this is going to be the best Sept.
11 ever," Cheney said with a grin. "I just dread the day I have
to tell my kids that 9/11 isn't real."
