Editor's Notes:

One would hope that this issue of FN has enough resources and information to get the Camp Casey crowd on board in exposing the glaring evidence of 9/11 fraud. Instead of responding to the symptons of the problem, the ongoing wars, it would be wise to take action to the root of it, to stop a renegade government that has gone ballistic. On this September 11 many people around the world will take the message to the streets, and share resources with the mainstream public. The key is to get your hands on literature, and the distribution of 9/11 truth films. The deal of a lifetime for a high speed DVD duplicator is in the first item, along with many other surprises.

Did you know that a Republican candidate for a congressional seat around Nashua, NH, stated that the U.S. government was complicit in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks? -- In an editorial interview, Mary Maxwell said 'the U.S. government had a role in killing nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center and Pentagon, so it could make Americans hate Arabs and allow the military to bomb Muslim nations such as Iraq.'

911 "Conspiracy Theorists" Vindicated:
Pentagon deliberately misled Public Opinion
by Michel Chossudovsky | Aug 3 2006

Recent revelations by members of the 911 Commission (quoted in the Washington Post, 2 August 2006) have far reaching implications.

They confirm that the Pentagon was involved in criminal wrongdoing by deliberately distorting and/or withholding information concerning the September 2001 attacks:

"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 rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate." (WP, 2 August 2006)

These revelations uphold what has been documented regarding 911 in several carefully researched studies, which the mainstream media continues to identify as "conspiracy theories".

It would appear that the 911 "Conspiracy Theorists" have at last been vindicated. The information now released and yet to come is that the Pentagon was involved in acts of coverup at the highest levels of the military hierarchy.

"Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said." (Ibid)

If this were known to the 911 Commission, why was it withheld?

More generally, why was the contradictory evidence presented by the Pentagon, the White House and the CIA taken at face value. Why did the 911 Commission uphold the lies and falsehoods in its "authoritative" Report?

Damage control

The Commission was not misled. The Commission deliberately and consciously distorted the facts regarding 911. A large part of the 911 narrative as presented in its report is fabricated.

The Pentagon's top brass (including senior NORAD officials) were involved in acts of perjury with a view to misleading public opinion. If the Commission doubted the veracity of the information presented, why did it replicate the lies and falsehoods in its report.

These recent revelations have all the appearances of "damage control": they consist in admitting that the Pentagon withheld information, without questioning the broader findings of the 911 Commission Report:

"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described," John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true." (Ibid).

Arnold, who could not be reached for comment yesterday, told the commission in 2004 that he did not have all the information unearthed by the panel when he testified earlier. Other military officials also denied any intent to mislead the panel.

John F. Lehman, a Republican commission member and former Navy secretary, said in a recent interview that he believed the panel may have been lied to but that he did not believe the evidence was sufficient to support a criminal referral.

"My view of that was that whether it was willful or just the fog of stupid bureaucracy, I don't know," Lehman said. "But in the order of magnitude of things, going after bureaucrats because they misled the commission didn't seem to make sense to me." (Ibid).

The integrity of the 911 commission members remains unscathed. The broader issue of sheer fabrication, presenting al Qaeda as the architect of the WTC attacks is not mentioned. Neither is the issue of Operation Able Danger, the Pentagon's secret operation, which consisted essentially is fabricating terrorist cells ahead of 911:

"Atta, according to the Kean report, was the “tactical leader of the 9/11 plot”. He was the pilot who on that dreadful morning flew the first plane, American Airlines 11, into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York. It was Atta’s face, on television and in newspapers across the world, that became the symbol of Islamic terrorism. And it was Atta’s name - not the names of any of the 18 other hijackers allegedly lead by Atta on that day - that was cited by international security researchers. Atta was, as the Kean report stresses, “the tactical commander of the operation in the United States”. According to both the Bush administration and the official 9/11 Commission report, he was working on the orders of Osama Bin Laden who, from remote Afghanistan, controlled the entire operation.

Now, almost exactly four years after 9/11, the facts appear to have been turned upside down. We now learn that Atta was also connected to a top secret operation of the Pentagon’s Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in the US. According to Army reserve Lieutenant-Colonel Anthony Shaffer, a top secret Pentagon project code-named Able Danger had identified Atta and three other 9/11 hijackers as members of an al-Qaida cell more than a year before the attacks.

Able Danger was an 18-month highly classified operation tasked, according to Shaffer, with “developing targeting information for al-Qaida on a global scale”, and used data-mining techniques to look for “patterns, associations, and linkages”. He said he himself had first encountered the names of the four hijackers in mid-2000." (See Daniele Ganser's study on Operation Able Danger .

- - Inquiry Opened Into Israeli Use of U.S. Bombs
Published on August 25, 2006 by the New York Times

WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 — The State Department is investigating whether Israel’s use of American-made cluster bombs in southern Lebanon violated secret agreements with the United States that restrict when it can employ such weapons, two officials said.

The investigation by the department’s Office of Defense Trade Controls began this week, after reports that three types of American cluster munitions, anti-personnel weapons that spray bomblets over a wide area, have been found in many areas of southern Lebanon and were responsible for civilian casualties.

- - Bush: Iraq Had `Nothing' To Do With 9/11

Bush Now Says What He Wouldn't Say Before War:
Iraq Had `Nothing' To Do With 9/11

President Bush was in the midst of explaining how the attacks of 9/11 inspired his "freedom agenda" and the attacks on Iraq until a reporter, Ken Herman of Cox News, interrupted to ask what Iraq had to do with 9/11. "Nothing," Bush defiantly answered. Watch it.

To justify the war, Bush informed Congress on March 19, 2003 that acting against Iraq was consistent with "continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001."

As ThinkProgress has repeatedly documented, Vice President Cheney cited "evidence" cooked up by Douglas Feith and others to claim it was "pretty well confirmed" that Iraq had contacts with 9/11 hijackers.

More generally, in the lead-up to the war in Iraq, the administration encouraged the false impression that Saddam had a role in 9/11. Bush never stated then, as he does now, that Iraq had "nothing" to do with 9/11. Only after the Iraq war began did Bush candidly acknowledge that Iraq was not operationally linked to 9/11.

Digg It!

Full transcript:

BUSH: The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East.

QUESTION: What did Iraq have to do with it?

BUSH: What did Iraq have to do with what?

QUESTION: The attack on the World Trade Center.

BUSH: Nothing. Except it's part of — and nobody has suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a — Iraq — the lesson of September 11th is take threats before they fully materialize, Ken. Nobody's ever suggested that the attacks of
September the 11th were ordered by Iraq.

- - U.S. Cold War gift: Iran nuclear plant
Now cited as evidence of weapons activity, facility was provided to shah's government

By Sam Roe
Tribune staff reporter
Published August 24, 2006

In the heart of Tehran sits one of Iran's most important nuclear facilities,
a dome-shaped building where scientists have conducted secret experiments
that could help the country build atomic bombs.
It was provided to the Iranians by the United States.

The Tehran Research Reactor represents a little-known aspect of the international uproar over the country's alleged weapons program. Not only did the U.S. provide the reactor in the 1960s as part of a Cold War strategy, America also supplied the weapons-grade uranium needed to power the facility--fuel that remains in Iran and could be used to help make nuclear arms.

- - GOP candidate says 9/11 attacks were a hoax
By ALBERT McKEON, Telegraph Staff, Nashua, NH
Published: Thursday, Aug. 24, 2006

A Republican candidate for this area’s congressional seat said Wednesday that the U.S. government was complicit in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

In an editorial board interview with The Telegraph on Wednesday, the candidate, Mary Maxwell, said the U.S. government had a role in killing nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center and Pentagon, so it could make Americans hate Arabs and allow the military to bomb Muslim nations such as Iraq.

- - 9/11: Press For Truth – one full scene on YOUTUBE


Two advance scenes will be made available each week on
From the movie '9/11 Press For Truth' between now and the world theatrical
premiere on Thursday, September 7th.

The first, entitled "Bush Knew", went online today:


On August 7th, 2001, the CIA warned George W. Bush in a Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) that Osama bin Laden might attempt to hijack planes in the United States.

After 9/11, the White House hid this fact for 8 months until the PDB was leaked to the press in May 2002. Defending themselves, the Bush administration claimed that it had never occurred to them that al Qaeda might crash the hijacked planes into buildings.

They lied.

Invaluable New Educational Resource: "9/11: Press for Truth"
[Posted at]

Resources and Materials- Emotionally moving, fact-driven documentary
promises 9/11 truth a whole new demographic appeal.

If you have been looking for an entry level 9/11 film to gently draw friends and relatives into the harsh light of that day or push wavering official story adherents over the edge, this clear, compelling and beautifully crafted documentary is just what you've been waiting for. As the first movie to tell the story of the 9/11 Commission- spawning "Jersey Girls" and their feelings of betrayal in its wake, it is an intensely human tale; but it also crisply exposes so much government deception and media complicity along the way that the effect is politically explosive as well. Told largely in the words of key 9/11 family members and 9/11 Timeline creator Paul Thompson, the news byte-backed narrative carefully exposes the pattern of official deceit from Ground Zero to Afghanistan. In sum, "9/11: Press for Truth" is an immensely important new 9/11 film for Middle America that should be sent to every church, school, library and political representative. Please do everything you can to draw attention, crowds and media coverage to its September premiers and early showings so it has a shot at the national distribution it so richly deserves. - Ed.

2) Congress Poised to Unravel the Internet
Published by - August 18, 2006
by Jeffrey Chester

Lured by huge checks handed out by the country's top lobbyists, members of Congress could soon strike a blow against Internet freedom as they seek to resolve the hot-button controversy over preserving "network neutrality." The telecommunications reform bill now moving through Congress threatens to be a major setback for those who hope that digital media can foster a more democratic society. The bill not only precludes net neutrality safeguards but also eliminates local community oversight of digital communications provided by cable and phone giants. It sets the stage for the privatized, consolidated and unregulated communications system that is at the core of the phone and cable lobbies' political agenda.

In both the House and Senate versions of the bill, Americans are described as "consumers" and "subscribers," not citizens deserving substantial rights when it comes to the creation and distribution of digital media. A handful of companies stand to gain incredible monopoly power from such legislation, especially AT&T, Comcast, Time Warner and Verizon. They have already used their political clout in Washington to secure for the phone and cable industries a stunning 98 percent control of the US residential market for high-speed Internet.

Alaska Republican Senator Ted Stevens, the powerful Commerce Committee chair, is trying to line up votes for his "Advanced Telecommunications and Opportunities Reform Act." It was Stevens who called the Internet a "series of tubes" as he tried to explain his bill. Now the subject of well-honed satirical jabs from The Daily Show, as well as dozens of independently made videos, Stevens is hunkering down to get his bill passed by the Senate when it reconvenes in September

3) Richard Sitcha’s Appeal this October

Sitcha Defense Committee

Richard Sitcha’s Appeal to be heard this October

August 18, 2006


After three years of incarceration (in 4 prisons in 2 states), Richard Sitcha expects his appeal to the Second Circuit Court in New York City to be heard this October. Hundreds of Sitcha's supporters are encouraged by a recent decision of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals (Hailemichael v. Gonzales) which highly favors Richard. Although the courts are independent, the similarities of the cases lead us to hope that the Second Circuit will similarly find that the Immigration Judge (in Hartford CT) violated Richard's due process in reopening the case after granting asylum. Thus, revoking his asylum was improper, and asylum should be reinstated.

Attorney Kevin Hoffkins agreed in mid-March 2006 to take on the appeal, nearly a year after Richard (with supporters) pro se petitioned first a habeas motion to the Hartford District and then the appeal to the Second Circuit. After conversations with key supporters and reviewing the files (a stack of papers two feet high), Attorney Hoffkins was able to prepare and submit the appeal brief in mid-May, while continuing administrative dealings with the clerks and US Attorney. The Court gave the deadline of August 28 for the US Attorney to submit her brief, and the expectation of hearing the case in October. Attorney Hoffkins is pursuing the appeal, with hopes of resolving the case in Richard's favor this Fall.

Meanwhile Richard Sitcha remains in good spirits, trusting in God and with gratitude for the hundreds of people who have supported him through these three long years of detention. For more information and to offer support, contact the Sitcha Defense Committee.

Free Richard Sitcha -- In April 2001, Richard Sitcha fled Cameroon after being imprisoned and tortured by the government’s security forces due to his involvement with the political protests against the Bepanda Nine killings. Fearing for his life, Richard applied for political asylum as soon as he arrived in the United States. The United States government granted Richard asylum in January 2003. Life was looking up for Richard—he could now realize his dreams of going back to school and bringing his wife and two children to the US. On September 18, 2003, however, the US government revoked Richard’s asylum and arrested him in the courtroom. He has been in jail, without charge, ever since that date!

Kucinich and the Sitcha Connection; also an article by Richard Sitcha, My Way of the Cross; and updates of March , May, and August, 2006 from the Sitcha Defense Committee.
