Chain of Deceit * 911Cspan * Lebanon

09 August 2006

"I think what the Israelis are doing today for example in Lebanon
is in effect, -- maybe not in intent -- the killing of hostages.. Because
when you kill 300 people, 400 people, who have nothing to do with the
provocations Hezbollah staged, but you do it in effect deliberately
by being indifferent to the scale of collateral damage, you're killing
hostages in the hope of intimidating those that you want to intimidate.
And more likely than not you will not intimidate them. You'll
simply outrage them and make them into permanent enemies
with the number of such enemies increasing."

Internal peace is an essential first step to achieving peace in the world.
How do you cultivate it? It's very simple. In the first place by realizing
clearly that all mankind is one, that human beings in every country
are members of one and the same family."

-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Editor's Notes:

The desperate actions of US/Israel to snuff out people associated with the Hezbollah forces, or to make them suffer, is adding to the ingredients for more terrorism and chaos. It appears that this is what these governments are intending to accomplish, for selfish rule for one's own empowerment or greed, and in leading humanity into darkness with falsified justification for fear and terror. Yet the top item is the one area where the people can help awaken the masses to confront the horrible deceit and tragedy of this current US regime. Item 2 is exposing the deep dark secrets of the centralized banking system's corruption. The human and financial story of Ambassador Leo Wanta is an example of deepening one's individual integrity, under the incredible pressures of renegade criminal governments. Democracy is the best chance for recovering the losses since the 2000 coup d'etat of the US election. Key to democracy is a free press. Since the people are mostly only getting globalization garbage brainwashing from the mainstream media, a good dose of Loose Change 2 and other 9/11 truth movies are in good order.

Chain of Deceit: From the Pentagon to the 9/11 Commission to the Public

9/11 Commission

By Russ Wellen
August 3, 2006

-- Astonishing as it sounds, a conference featuring the 9/11 Scholars for Truth was aired on C-SPAN.

-- In his Washington Post article, "9/11 Panel Suspected Deception by Pentagon," Dan Eggen reported, "Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public. . ."

"We to this day don't know why NORAD told us what they told us," Commission Chair Thomas H. Kean said. "It was just so far from the truth."

-- According to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll, "More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East."

Still more surprising, 16 percent think the collapse of the World Trade Towers was expedited by controlled demolition while 12 percent suspect the Pentagon was struck by a missile, not Flight 77.

Eye-opening as these results are, they're not unprecedented. According to Scripps/Howard, "The level of suspicion of U.S. official involvement in a 9/11 conspiracy was only slightly behind the 40 percent who suspect 'officials in the federal government were directly responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy.'"

Kean's colleague, 9/11 Commisssion vice chair Lee Hamilton, conceded the results of the poll. "A lot of people I've encountered believe the U.S. government was involved." But he remains unmoved. "Of course, we don't think the evidence leads that way at all."

What Hamilton doesn't get is that he's only contributing to this monumental lack of faith in our own government. Just as when the commission blocked testimony about explosions by the likes of White House-honored 9/11 hero William Rodriguez.

- - 9/11 Symposium Most Popular C-Span Show

Prison Planet | August 5 2006

The June 2006 L.A. American Scholars Symposium is still the most popular online streaming choice for C-Span viewers, according to their companion Capital News website.

The 9/11 truth symposium, hosted by Alex Jones, featured numerous credible researchers and whistleblowers - as well as a speech by actor Charlie Sheen.

The program, carried under the banner of C-Span's 'American Perspectives' slot, caused waves across the Internet after debuting last weekend and repeating a further three times.

It is highly unlikely that Dick Cheney's speech which followed the symposium is responsible for any of the ratings!

The panel discussion featuring Webster Tarply, Professor Steven Jones, Col. Bob Bowman and Professor James Fetzer can be viewed in full below.

Posted above is's four-camera shoot of the panel discussion held during the American Scholars Symposium that was covered by C-SPAN. This was definitely one of the most powerful moments from the historic 9/11 & The Neo-Con Agenda Symposium in Los Angeles featuring speeches and commentary by world-renowned experts who expose 9/11 as inside job including Webster Tarpley, Robert Bowman, Alex Jones, Steven E. Jones, and James Fetzer.

C-SPAN's online viewing options are pretty poor quality and this verison that was shot, produced and posted to Google Video by is much better looking.

Its crucial that people see and share this important information so please tell your friends and family, email co-workers about it, and post the link to message boards to help spread the word.

- - 9/11 conspiracy theorists thriving

AP Education Writer
Sun Aug 6, 3:40 PM ET

Kevin Barrett believes the U.S government might have destroyed the World Trade Center. Steven Jones is researching what he calls evidence that the twin towers were brought down by explosives detonated inside them, not by hijacked airliners.

These men aren't uneducated junk scientists: Barrett will teach a class on Islam at the University of Wisconsin this fall, over the protests of more than 60 state legislators. Jones is a tenured physicist at Brigham Young University whose mainstream academic job has made him a hero to conspiracy theorists.

Five years after the terrorist attacks, a community that believes widely discredited ideas about what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, persists and even thrives. Members trade their ideas on the Internet and in self-published papers and in books. About 500 of them attended a recent conference in Chicago.

The movement claims to be drawing fresh energy and credibility from a recently formed group called Scholars for 9/11 Truth.

The organization says publicity over Barrett's case has helped boost membership to about 75 academics. They are a tiny minority of the 1 million part- and full-time faculty nationwide, and some have no university affiliation. Most aren't experts in relevant fields. But some are well educated, with degrees from elite universities such as Princeton and Stanford and jobs at schools including Rice, Indiana and the University of Texas.

"Things are happening," said co-founder James Fetzer, a retired philosophy professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, who maintains, among other claims, that some of the hijackers are still alive. "We're going to continue to do this. Our role is to establish what really happened on 9/11."

..But when asked what did happen in 2001, members often step outside the rigorous, data-based culture of the academy and defer to their own instincts.

Daniel Orr, a Princeton Ph.D. and widely published retired economics chair at the University of Illinois, said he knew instantly from watching the towers fall that they had been blown apart by explosives. He was reminded of watching an old housing project being destroyed in St. Louis.

David Gabbard, an East Carolina education professor, acknowledges this isn't his field, but says "I'm smart enough to know ... that fire from airplanes can't melt steel."

When they do cite evidence, critics such as Greening contend it's junk science from fellow conspiracy theorists, dressed up in the language and format of real research to give it a sense of credibility.

Jones focuses on the relatively narrow question of whether molten metal present at the World Trade Center site after the attacks is evidence that a high-temperature incendiary called thermite, which can be used to weld or cut metal, was involved in the towers' destruction. He concludes thermite was present, throwing the government's entire explanation into question and suggesting someone might have used explosives to bring down the towers.

"I have not run into many who have read my paper and said it's just all hogwash," Jones said.

Judy Wood, until recently an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Clemson University, has been cited by conspiracy theorists for her arguments the buildings could not have collapsed as quickly as they did unless explosives were used.

"If the U.S. government is lying about how the buildings came down, anything else they say cannot be believed," she said. "So why would they want to tell us an incorrect story if they weren't part of it?"

Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11

Press Contact:
Good Karma Public Relations

*New Book Challenges Media Over September 11th Coverage*

A recent Zogby poll reveals that more than half of Americans distrust the official story of 9/11 and 42% believe there's been a cover up. The same poll shows 55% of respondents are negative about media performance, including coverage of alternative theories and unanswered questions surrounding 9/11. *

*08/08/06* -- As the 5th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, media critic and TV producer Barrie Zwicker delivers a blistering critique of the official story and its promoters in the media in his new book:

Towers of Deception:
The Media Cover-Up of 9/11

{available in bookstores August 17th

Why did Larry Silverstein, the lease holder on the World Trade Center, publicly admit he was involved in a decision to "pull" WTC building 7 late on the afternoon of 9/11, even though the building was not hit by a plane and suffered little damage? Controlled demolitions require weeks of preparation: why have media pointedly ignored this glaring anomaly?

In "Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-Up of 9/11" Zwicker provides readers with 26 "Exhibits" of evidence proving beyond a reasonable doubt that 9/11 was an inside job, what's known as a "false flag operation." In a false flag operation, an attack is self-inflicted in order to mobilize the public against a designated enemy. Eighteen such operations are described in "Towers of Deception." They include the non-existent attack on American destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964. This "attack" provided justification for the Vietnam War, costing 58,000 US lives and 3-million Vietnamese lives.

The phenomenon of denial is also explored and there are 16 profiles of fearless investigators who have exposed the fraud of the official story. Also included with the book is **a powerful documentary on DVD, entitled "The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw",produced by the author.

Barrie Zwicker was the first journalist in the world to deeply question the official story of 9/11 on national television. A writer, TV producer and host, and political and environmental activist, he was Director of the International Citizens' Inquiry into 9/11, Phase 2, at the University of Toronto in May 2004.

2) 'People in the Know' - Got to learn about the Wanta Plan

- - Conyers' Report Newly Updated: "Constitution in Crisis"

Americans and "People in the Know" Speak-Up About The Wanta Plan
Documentation abounds verifying $4.5 trillion settlement;
Arctic Beacon editor subject of veiled death threat by Bush Sr. camp.
7 Aug 2006

By Greg Szymanski

The Leo Wanta story has caused a flood of emails to the Arctic Beacon numbering in the thousands, from all parts of the globe, like a raging windstorm of financial shock and awe, disrupting business-as-usual among top heads-of-state and international bankers.

Let there be no mistake about it, The Wanta Plan is on the lips of the "people in the know" all over the world. The financial plan top officials are discussing represents the release of $4.5 trillion in repatriated off-shore funds tampered with illegally by high-level U.S. authorities.

But it also must be emphasized the $4.5 trillion owed to Wanta and his AmeriTrust Groupe is only the tip of the iceberg of a deeper problem involving trillions more in looted off-shore money, as well as shake-ups in the Federal Reserve banking system and the Bretton Woods system of international monetary management, which established the rules for commercial and financial relations among the world's major industrial states.

As one top financial onlooker who knows the importance of the implementation of The Wanta Plan said:

"If it is not honored shortly, it spells a total collapse of the worldwide banking system and, in turn, a collapse of economic proportions far worse than anything ever seen before."

Conyers Releases Massive New Report on Bush-Cheney Crimes

The minority staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, under the leadership of Congressman John Conyers (D., Mich.) just released a staggering report with the hard evidence of crimes and abuses committed by President Bush and his administration (breaking 26 specific laws). This report, "The Constitution in Crisis," should provide the raw material for numerous news reports and point reporters toward fertile ground for additional investigations.

Hizbullah's attacks stem from Israeli incursions into Lebanon

Hizbullah's attacks stem from Israeli incursions into Lebanon
By Anders Strindberg

01/08/06 Christian Science Monitor

NEW YORK - As pundits and policymakers scramble to explain events in Lebanon, their conclusions are virtually unanimous: Hizbullah created this crisis. Israel is defending itself. The underlying problem is Arab extremism.

Sadly, this is pure analytical nonsense. Hizbullah's capture of two Israeli soldiers on July 12 was a direct result of Israel's silent but unrelenting aggression against Lebanon, which in turn is part of a six-decades long Arab-Israeli conflict.

Since its withdrawal of occupation forces from southern Lebanon in May 2000, Israel has violated the United Nations-monitored "blue line" on an almost daily basis, according to UN reports. Hizbullah's military doctrine, articulated in the early 1990s, states that it will fire Katyusha rockets into Israel only in response to Israeli attacks on Lebanese civilians or Hizbullah's leadership; this indeed has been the pattern.

In the process of its violations, Israel has terrorized the general population, destroyed private property, and killed numerous civilians. This past February, for instance, 15-year-old shepherd Yusuf Rahil was killed by unprovoked Israeli cross-border fire as he tended his flock in southern Lebanon. Israel has assassinated its enemies in the streets of Lebanese cities and continues to occupy Lebanon's Shebaa Farms area, while refusing to hand over the maps of mine fields that continue to kill and cripple civilians in southern Lebanon more than six years after the war supposedly ended. What peace did Hizbullah shatter?

Hizbullah's capture of the soldiers took place in the context of this ongoing conflict, which in turn is fundamentally shaped by realities in the Palestinian territories. To the vexation of Israel and its allies, Hizbullah - easily the most popular political movement in the Middle East - unflinchingly stands with the Palestinians.

Since June 25, when Palestinian fighters captured one Israeli soldier and demanded a prisoner exchange, Israel has killed more than 140 Palestinians. Like the Lebanese situation, that flare-up was detached from its wider context and was said to be "manufactured" by the enemies of Israel; more nonsense proffered in order to distract from the apparently unthinkable reality that it is the manner in which Israel was created, and the ideological premises that have sustained it for almost 60 years, that are the core of the entire Arab-Israeli conflict.

Once the Arabs had rejected the UN's right to give away their land and to force them to pay the price for European progroms and the Holocaust, the creation of Israel in 1948 was made possible only by ethnic cleansing and annexation. This is historical fact and has been documented by Israeli historians, such as Benny Morris. Yet Israel continues to contend that it had nothing to do with the Palestinian exodus, and consequently has no moral duty to offer redress.

For six decades the Palestinian refugees have been refused their right to return home because they are of the wrong race. "Israel must remain a Jewish state," is an almost sacral mantra across the Western political spectrum. It means, in practice, that Israel is accorded the right to be an ethnocracy at the expense of the refugees and their descendants, now close to 5 million.

Is it not understandable that Israel's ethnic preoccupation profoundly offends not only Palestinians, but many of their Arab brethren? Yet rather than demanding that Israel acknowledge its foundational wrongs as a first step toward equality and coexistence, the Western world blithely insists that each and all must recognize Israel's right to exist at the Palestinians' expense.

Western discourse seems unable to accommodate a serious, as opposed to cosmetic concern for Palestinians' rights and liberties: The Palestinians are the Indians who refuse to live on the reservation; the Negroes who refuse to sit in the back of the bus.

By what moral right does anyone tell them to be realistic and get over themselves? That it is too much of a hassle to right the wrongs committed against them? That the front of the bus must remain ethnically pure? When they refuse to recognize their occupier and embrace their racial inferiority, when desperation and frustration causes them to turn to violence, and when neighbors and allies come to their aid - some for reasons of power politics, others out of idealism - we are astonished that they are all such fanatics and extremists.

The fundamental obstacle to understanding the Arab-Israeli conflict is that we have given up on asking what is right and wrong, instead asking what is "practical" and "realistic." Yet reality is that Israel is a profoundly racist state, the existence of which is buttressed by a seemingly endless succession of punitive measures, assassinations, and wars against its victims and their allies.

A realistic understanding of the conflict, therefore, is one that recognizes that the crux is not in this or that incident or policy, but in Israel's foundational and per- sistent refusal to recognize the humanity of its Palestinian victims. Neither Hizbullah nor Hamas are driven by a desire to "wipe out Jews," as is so often claimed, but by a fundamental sense of injustice that they will not allow to be forgotten.

These groups will continue to enjoy popular legitimacy because they fulfill the need for someone - anyone - to stand up for Arab rights. Israel cannot destroy this need by bombing power grids or rocket ramps. If Israel, like its former political ally South Africa, has the capacity to come to terms with principles of democracy and human rights and accept egalitarian multiracial coexistence within a single state for Jews and Arabs, then the foundation for resentment and resistance will have been removed. If Israel cannot bring itself to do so, then it will continue to be the vortex of regional violence.
