Editor's Notes:

It has been more than 3 weeks since the last issue of Flyby News, challenged by computer malfunctions, car repairs, distributing Green Living Journal, and powerful events with the Western Mass 9/11 Truth Alliance. This is a wild time for independent news. This past September 11 will remain a day remembered for freedom of speech, and the turnaround for a remaining integrity to stand up and question the status quo. In the academic world of Brigham Young University, physicist, Dr. Steven Jones was placed 'on paid leave’ while BYU "reviews his involvement in the so-called '9/11 truth movement' that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center."' In this voodoo science world where buildings suddenly implode for questionable reasons, no accountability for the destruction of evidence at the scene of a crime, why, of course, investigate Dr. Steven Jones! Yet increasing numbers of people are awakening to demand real investigations; and what is this thing about endless war? To help the grassroots distribute DVD's that document the questions in a way that help deprogram viewers, hypnotized by mainstream media's projections, Tom Tvedten, MD is making seven excellent DVD films available for everyone. The second item is on Project Censored top 25 awards to under-publicized news articles. Top on their list is: “Future of Internet Debate Ignored by Media.” The third item is on the exponential increase of the release of carbon atoms contributing to global warming. Meanwhile, the Maine Technology Institute rejected ReGen Power Systems grant proposal for a ‘a low temperature Stirling power system to convert excess process heat and steam energy at industrial plants into electricity.’

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,
people will become accustomed to believing it.

See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things
over and over and over again for the truth to sink in,
to kind of catapult the propaganda.

Five Years On, 9/11 Truth Movement Reaches Critical Mass

- Near Majority Support, Powerful New Tools, and Energized Activism
Promise Endgame Soon

September 11, 2006 (PRWEB) -- The year leading up to the fifth anniversary of the September 11 attacks has been marked by an unprecedented upsurge in public mistrust of the official story portrayed in the 9/11 Commission Report. Respected national polling firms Zogby and Scripps Howard have shown that less than half the public believes in the conclusions or integrity of the 9/11 Commission, and 36% of Americans now think the administration was actively complicit in the attacks to advance its preplanned Mideast war agenda.

This outburst of popular skepticism has come in spite of five years of lockstep support for the official 9/11 narrative by the national press, broadcast media, and both major political parties. The mounting distrust spans the political, religious and ethnic spectrums, and has been largely driven by compelling new films, books, whistleblower reports, and escalating grassroots activism. Collectively these resources and constituencies not only offer the country hope for a fresh and truly honest 9/11 probe, but also a potent new base for radical political reform.

Activating the Newly Awakened

To mobilize the 70+ million voting age 9/11 skeptics identified by Zogby, has organized "Politics 911," a national effort to identify congressional candidates who would demand an honorable new 9/11 inquiry and then help generate support for their election. This campaign has started polling candidates nationwide and is currently
recruiting grassroots poll volunteers at Early progress includes 9/11 truth advocate Dr. Robert Bowman's lopsided Democratic primary victory on September 5th in Florida's 15th Congressional District.

New and Old Tools for Enlightenment

The truth movement is currently blessed with an extraordinary array of new films and books that deconstruct the official story with meticulous research, passion and clarity. Among the latest crop, particularly recommends:

"9/11: Press for Truth" -- a stunning new documentary based on Paul Thompson's "Terror Timeline" and the story of the "Jersey Girls" who lobbied the 9/11 Commission into existence and still feel betrayed by the cover-up it spawned.

"9/11 and American Empire: American Intellectuals Speak Out" and "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11:A Call to Reflection and Action" by Dr. David Ray Griffin et al. that smartly introduce the 9/11 truth conversation to influential new constituencies.

"Towers of Deception-- The Media Cover-up of 9-11" by Canadian media scholar Barrie Zwicker that thoroughly dissects corporate media complicity in the suppression of inconvenient 9/11 truths.

There are many more powerful works now available at and more are on the way. In the meantime, it is useful to remember some of the most basic questions that the corporate media still refuse to ask and a new 9/11 inquiry must confront

--Why do 70% of the victim families' questions remain unanswered to this day, questions that the Commission initially promised would become the investigation's "road map"?

--Why has the FBI gone to such lengths to cover up its passive unto hostile response to terrorist investigations prior to September 11? Why did it promote the officials who quashed these investigations while gagging agents who claim to have vital information the public still needs to know?

--Why did the 9/11 Commission steer its investigation away from virtually indisputable evidence for government complicity in the 9/11 attacks? And why hasn't the corporate media followed up on this story?

--Why were dozens of intelligence experts "turned away,silenced or censored" by the 9/11 Commission, according to the National Security Whistleblowers Association, so that not a single meaningful word from any of their testimony made it into the final report?

--Who ordered the half dozen aerial war games that were going on during the 9/11 attacks? Who commanded and controlled them, and why has the media never questioned this bizarre coincidence?

--Why has the 9/11 Commission sealed its private hearing and interview records until January 2009? How can anyone assess its integrity or performance without any of this material?

--Why were NORAD officials permitted to repeatedly lie about our military response that morning without ever facing reprimand or censure, let alone courts martial? executive director Janice Matthews thoughtfully welcomes the new stage the movement has reached. "The forces aligned against 9/11 truth have moved in recent months from disregard and ridicule to mass media damage control and openly hostile attacks. While this is a certain sign of progress, citizens should be alert to the ubiquitous strawman tactics now employed by official story flacks to defame our movement and re-marginalize 9/11 truth.

2. BYU Professor Steven Jones Placed on "Paid Leave"
while the White House Issues Veiled Threat To Dissenters

Many of you are aware of the plight of Steven Jones (click for full story here)],who was placed on paid leave last week while BYU "reviews his involvement in the so-called '9/11 truth movement' that accuses unnamed government agencies of orchestrating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center." This situation comes on the heels of similar actions taken against two other professors -- Kevin Barrett at University of Wisconsin-Madison and William Woodward at the University of New Hampshire. While both of these individuals' academic freedoms have been (begrudgingly) supported by their universities, Wisconsin and New Hampshire legislators are threatening university funding cuts.

Dr. Woodward has succinctly asked the critical question at issue: "Are we going to continue to have tenure and protection of free speech, or are we going to have politicians deciding what is acceptable to teach our children?"

At stake in this situation is not really whether professors can teach 'alternative 9/11 theories.' The deeper issues are constitutional -- are Americans allowed to question the government at all? A particularly Orwellian position paper released this month by the White House, the "National Strategy for Combating Terrorism," offers us a clear picture of our government's answer to this question:

"The terrorism we confront today springs from . .. [s]ubcultures of conspiracy and misinformation. Terrorists recruit more effectively from populations whose information about the world is contaminated by falsehoods and corrupted by conspiracy theories. The distortions keep alive grievances and filter out facts that would challenge popular prejudices and self-serving propaganda. . . In place of a culture of conspiracy and misinformation, democracy offers freedom of speech, independent media, and the marketplace of ideas, which can expose and discredit falsehoods, prejudices, and dishonest propaganda."

It's not very difficult to see that with this disgraceful attempt to link terrorism to the free expression of ideas, the US government is aiming to foment an environment in which it may criminalize those who disagree with the government. The Orwellian architects of this dizzying statement obviously want nothing of "freedom of speech, independent media, and the marketplace of ideas" when powerful alternative views gain purchase. They are in full denial over the fact that it is US policy, and not the free expression of ideas, which produces terrorism. The battle facing these three professors may be a harbinger of things to come, and we urge everyone to support them as fully as possible.

Be encouraged! On Monday, thousands and thousands of people around the world gathered to acknowledge the 5thanniversary of 9/11 by continuing to demand the truth, with justice for all the victims of that event, through video showings, speakers, protests, music, art, and gathering with like-minded truthseekers for encouragement and strength. Our website received nearly 97,000 page loads on that day alone, in spite of the media's recently increased dismissive tone of our efforts, and the massive redirection of focus, away from the truth and toward shifting the blame, caused by ABC's showing of Path to 9/11. Many of you wrote letters to the media, demanding they tell the truth this year.

We posted 26 events at the Global Day of Action page, and will be adding reports, photos, and video of these events in the next couple of days, as they continue to pour in to (please send us yours, too!).


Politics911 is well underway, and we need your help!! Following are the details. Please forward this action plan far and wide, and get busy - elections are only weeks away!

The Goal: Every candidate for federal office this year is asked to go "on the record" regarding 9/11 and a new investigation by responding to a questionnaire delivered by his/her constituents. We are finding a few out there willing to actually represent the nearly 50% of their constituents who want a new investigation - are your state's candidates among those? Time to put the "Represent" back in Representative!!

"Politics 911" is a fast, focused, grassroots polling/public education campaign to make 9/11 truth visible throughout the 2006 political season, audible in the election debates, and important enough to demand a stated position from every Congressional candidate.

Specifically, we need your help to poll every congressional candidate in the country on their understanding of 9/11 truth, its relation to current domestic & foreign crises, and their support for an independent new inquiry. The campaign will then highlight promising 9/11 truth supporters and try to promote their election.

We obviously cannot do this without a lot people taking part –in groups or individually, but there are now over 12,000 "Justice for 9/11" signers and only about 1,200 candidates, so this is certainly doable if you help.

Helping with this historic initiative can be both easy and fun-- often rare attributes in grassroots 9/11 land -- and have an enormous lasting impact to boot.

All you have to do is:

a) Read through all the campaign info at

b) Choose the other people you would like to work with in your group
or area.

Note: Anyone with a little care and intelligence can brief and poll a candidate as a single individual. It is often just a lot more interesting and effective if several or more people collaborate to game plan their approaches to specific candidates and maximize the impact of the survey's message both upon the candidate's staff and the surrounding ommunity. Bird-dogging (questioning candidates openly at public events) also ideally requires at least three persons – a questioner, a videographer and someone recording sound to preserve and share a record of their responses.

c) Register as a user at

d) Choose a role (poller, bird-dogger, tactician, etc.) and the candidate campaign(s) you will focus on.

e) Deliver 9/11 truth literature to each campaign (see "Politics 911" Briefing Resources), poll the candidate(s), report back the results at the website above, and post links to your audio or video files if bird-dogging was involved.

Note: You can also submit responses by snail mail to 911 Truth, PO Box 5407, Woodridge, IL 60517 or by fax to 630-971-0500.

f) Last and most important, help 9/11-friendly candidates in your region and beyond in any way you can.

2) Top 25 Most Censored Stories from Project Censored

Project Censored Announces the Release of
the Top 25 Most Censored Stories for 2005-06

For thirty years Project Censored at Sonoma State University has been reporting the real news that corporate media refuses to cover. The 250 student researchers and faculty find cutting-edge news stories that go under-reported in the mainstream corporate media. Real news is not there for the selling of material goods or entertainment. Real news can only be measured through its success in building democracy, stimulating grassroots activism, and motivating resistance to top-down institutions. Democratic activism underlies the purpose, reason, and message of free speech. Here again is Project Censored's release of the news that didn't make the news--a compilation of the best examples of journalism that the corporate media marginalized in 2005-06.

3) Greenhouse Gas Bubbling From Melting Permafrost Feeds Climate Warming

Methane bubbles trapped in lake ice during the first few days of ice formation on a Siberian thermokarst lake.

Tallahassee FL (SPX) Sep 07, 2006

A study co-authored by a Florida State University scientist and published in the Sept. 7 issue of the journal Nature has found that as the permafrost melts in North Siberia due to climate change, carbon sequestered and buried there since the Pleistocene era is bubbling up to the surface of Siberian thaw lakes and into the atmosphere as methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

In turn, that bubbling methane held captive as carbon under the permafrost for more than 40,000 years is accelerating global warming by heating the Earth even more --- exacerbating the entire cycle. The ominous implications of the process grow as the permafrost decomposes further and the resulting lakes continue to expand, according to FSU oceanography Professor Jeff Chanton and study co-authors at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

"This is not good for the quality of human life on Earth," Chanton said.

The researchers devised a novel method of measuring ebullition (bubbling) to more accurately quantify the methane emissions from two Siberian thaw lakes and in so doing, revealed the world's northern wetlands as a much larger source of methane release into the atmosphere than previously believed. The magnitude of their findings has increased estimates of such emissions by 10 to 63 percent.

Understanding the contribution of North Siberia thaw lakes to global atmospheric methane is critical, explains the paper that appears in this week's Nature, because the concentration of that potent greenhouse is highest at that latitude, has risen sharply in recent decades and exhibits a significant seasonal jump at those high northern latitudes.

Chanton points to the thawing permafrost along the margins of the thaw lakes -- which comprise 90 percent of the lakes in the Russian permafrost zone -- as the primary source of methane released in the region. During the yearlong study, he performed the isotopic analysis and interpretation to determine the methane's age and origin and assisted with measurements of the methane bubbles' composition to shed light on the mode of gas transport.

"My fellow researchers and I estimate that an expansion of these thaw lakes between 1974 and 2000, a period of regional warming, increased methane emissions by 58 percent there," said Chanton. "Because the methane now emitted in our study region dates to the Pleistocene age, it's clear that the process, described by scientists as 'positive feedback to global warming,' has led to the release of old carbon stocks once stored in the permafrost."
