18 October 2006

Terrorstorm exposes how Governments
have long staged false-flag terror events
in order to achieve political and sociological ends.

1) False Flag Terror Alert
- - Public's Right To Know – Demand Release of 9/11-Documents
- - Official 9/11 story On Life support; Truth is Taking Over

Editor's Notes:

This issue primarily covers background and future considerations of false flag terror operations. The excellent film by Alex Jones called "Terrorstorm" is reviewed. Also in the first item, note Dennis Kucinich’s efforts to preempt another Bush-preemptive war; this time on Iran. Meanwhile new evidence of a Bush-regime cover-up on intelligence before 9/11/01 is presented with a new petition signed by 9/11 Widows: Patty Casazza, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg, Lorie Van Auken. They are asking for your support to sign and spread the word for a new investigation in the new year. Item 2 was taken from last week’s PBS program, NOW, on a fascinating film showing what life is like for people living in Iraq. Laura Poitras's film, "My Country, My Country" is in theatres and gets its broadcast premiere on the PBS Documentary series, POV on Wednesday, October 25th. This Thursday, October 19, the Western Mass 9/11 Truth Alliance is screening “911 Mysteries” at 7:00 pm. Its next film showing will be with Alex Jones “Terrorstorm” at 6:00 pm on November 16, also at the Media Education Foundation, Northampton, MA. Item three is an article claiming the first ‘direct evidence’ linking the collapse of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica to ‘global warming widely blamed on human activities.’

Public's Right To Know - Declassification and Release of Documents
To: U.S Congress; Press/Media

We, the undersigned, demand the immediate declassification and release of all transcripts and documents relating to the July 10, 2001 meeting that took place between former CIA Director George Tenet and then National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. It has been alleged that this urgent and out-of-the-ordinary meeting was called to discuss the increasingly dire warnings of an imminent al Qaeda attack within the U.S.

Given that much of the July 10, 2001 meeting has already been made public in Bob Woodward’s newly released book, “State of Denial”, it is unacceptable to continue to keep these documents and transcripts hidden from the American public’s view.

In addition, we again call for the declassification and release of both the redacted 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry Into The Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 (JICI) and the CIA Inspector General’s report, “CIA Accountability With Respect To The 9/11 Attacks”.

The disastrous nature of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks warrant the release of all of this information so that the American public may learn what its government did or did not do to protect them. Had this nation been properly warned of the looming and imminent terrorist threat, life saving choices could have been made that day.

Documents: CIA Warned of Plane Bomb Plot

The ironies pile up in the ongoing US theater of the absurd. As this AP story amply documents, the CIA was indirectly, if not directly, responsible for the murder of 73 passengers on Cubana Airlines in 1976. The man who very likely masterminded the plot, Luis Posada Carriles, was a CIA asset for years prior to the bombing, contacted the CIA before the bombing to tell them about it, and was contacted by the CIA immediately after the bombing. Against CIA responsibility in the plot we have only the agency's contention that they cut ties with Posada a few months prior to the bombing.

Yet this admitted terrorist was later rehired by the CIA to run weapons during the Iran-Contra scandal and, in what has to be the most incredible irony of all, is now being shielded by US authorities for fear that his extradition to Cuba or Venezuela will result in his being tortured!

Of course, now that the Military Commissions Act has been signed into law this morning, Posada could be legally tortured here in the good ol' USA if the president sees fit to do so. — Ed. []

- - Terrorstorm Raises The Bar In Truth Film Making
Slick graphics, presentation, hardcore information make for professional expose

Steve Watson / Prisonplanet | June 28 2006

Alex Jones' latest documentary Terrorstorm is another forceful piece of filmmaking that again breaks new boundaries and will pave the way for more of the same from other independent directors.

Terrorstorm exposes how Governments have long staged false-flag terror events in order to achieve political and sociological ends.

The film takes us on a journey through the depths of history from the Gulf of Tonkin, the USS Liberty and operation Gladio through to the Madrid bombings and 9/11 and robustly catalogues the real story behind the government induced fable.

Terrorstorm features exclusive interviews with prominent names such as former MI5 officer David Shayler, Ex CIA analyst Ray McGovern, Activist Cindy Sheehan, Michael Meacher MP, Former Bush administration economist Morgan Reynolds to name but a few.

The film is the first of its kind to look in depth at last years bombings in London on 7/7 and raises multiple vital questions that will no doubt become just as prevalent as the inconsistencies of 9/11 have done over the past five years, due in part to Jones' previous two documentaries Martial Law and Road To Tyranny.

Unlike those two films however, which were necessarily lengthy given the overwhelming amount of smoking guns surrounding 9/11, Terrorstorm is under two hours in length and is arguably more accessible to an audience uninitiated on the facts surrounding false flag terror and its use past and present.

The raw footage taken during Jones' fact finding mission in London just days after the bombings took place is compelling. Witness the broken windows at Tavistock square, the still relatively deserted tube stations and the armed police on patrol everywhere. This part of the film excellently documents the initial state of fear that gripped London in the aftermath.

There is also more of a focus on the big brother surveillance culture that has finally been allowed to invade our society relatively unopposed since 9/11. The film not only unravels historical events but also takes its place as a zeitgeist document of our culture at this very moment.

Jones' presentation also represents a certain coming of age. Still ever present is the bullhorning brash in your face Texan activist, but he competes with a more assured, more measured and calculated Jones at times. This Alex Jones has perhaps realized he has now crossed more into a mainstream limelight, is reaching more and more people and that the "in your face" approach may not win everyone over.

Michael McWhirter's slick visual effects complement the material expertly and professionally, emphasizing that the dystopian futuristic political climate is not a distant possibility, but has already arrived on our doorsteps in the form of governments that use fear to manipulate their populations.

Jones this time opts for a more contemporary soundtrack which again places the film within its bang up to date context and will ensure an appeal among a new younger audience as well as those already familiar with his work.

The film concludes strongly and positively by offering viable solutions on how we can reclaim human dignity and freedom and prevent the global population from becoming the slaves of a prison planet.

Alex Jones has once again raised the bar as far as the subject matter in hand goes. Terrorstorm will appeal to everyone who has an interest in modern day politics and the war on terror, but chooses to search for the truth and not just a one sided explanation of major events.

- - Kucinich Hearing on War Plans for Iran

On October 11, Congressman Kucinich led a briefing on Iran, to find out what the Bush Administration plans for Iran and what actions are already underway.

The panel discussion included:

* Retired Air Force Colonel Sam Gardiner, now with the National War College and author of The End of the Summer of Diplomacy
* David Kay, former UN nuclear weapons inspector
* Joseph Cirincione, Senior Vice President for National Security and International Policy at the Center for American Progress
* Alfred Cumming, national security specialist with the Congressional Research Service and author of the January 18, 2006, report, "Statutory Procedures Under Which Congress Is To Be Informed of U.S. Intelligence Activities, Including Covert Actions"
* Dr. Trita Parsi, President of the National Iranian American Council

There was general agreement that Iran was still a decade away from producing a nuclear weapons and no threat to its neighbors or to the US and that the Administration was refusing to negotiate but instead was committed to a war with horrific global consequences.

2) An American woman's startling tale of life in Iraq
From PBS TV – NOW -

Video: An American woman's startling tale of life in Iraq

Filmmaker Laura Poitras spent eight dangerous months documenting the life of an Iraqi medical doctor and his family as they struggled to maintain hope amidst the bombings, bloodshed, and military occupation.

When she returned to America, Poitras was labeled with the highest possible threat rating from the Department of Homeland Security. Her resulting film, "My Country, My Country" is an intimate portrait of daily life in the war zone.

Broadcast on PBS TV on October 13, NOW's David Brancaccio talked to Poitras about her eye-opening experiences working on what The Village Voice calls "the most valuable piece of film to emerge about the war in all of its three years."

Transcript - October 13, 2006


BRANCACCIO: Her film may be finished, but her story isn't.

POITRAS: Since the film's been completed, I'm getting held at airports not only was I on a threat list, but that my point score was the highest that there is.

BRANCACCIO: The director of "My country My country," Laura Poitras. Laura thanks for doing this.

POITRAS: It's a pleasure to be here.

BRANCACCIO: What pushed you to pack up and go to Baghdad?

POITRAS: I was prompted by an article in THE NEW YORKER by George Packer. It was the fall of 2003, and I was reading the papers, and things were just really getting bad. And he captured this­something that I wasn't hearing in the news about the situation, on the ground, from the perspective of the people whose lives were really at risk. And it was not an ideological, political­presentation, but something that was very human, and very tragic. And I was in the middle of reading it and I said; Okay, that's it. I'm gonna do this.

BRANCACCIO: You're gonna find out what is the on-the-ground reality for people living through this period.

POITRAS: Yeah. I mean, I think, as Americans, we should understand the war and the consequences from the human perspective and its toll, and not just be reading the front pages of, you know, body counts. And I just felt absolutely compelled. I mean it's a hard thing to describe but just­absolutely compelled to do it. And then once I got there, I realized that I needed to find an Iraqi perspective to tell the story. That I couldn't tell it from just a US perspective or from a military perspective. But that to­if we're gonna understand this war as Americans we need to understand what it means for Iraqis.

BRANCACCIO: So tell me, how did you come across this amazing central figure in the documentary?

POITRAS: It was actually really amazing. It was­it was inspection of Abu Ghraib prison and it was two months after the photographs were public. So it was not easy to get access. But I managed to get access and I was filming this inspection, and Doctor Riyadh was leading­an inspection for Baghdad City Council and he's a doctor. So he was talking to people about how long they'd been there. Their medical problems. And as we continued to­to talk to detainees, we were there for about two hours, he comes across a group of juveniles.

BRANCACCIO: In fact, he comes across a kid who says he's nine years old.

RIYADH: Hold on a minute. Peace be upon you. How many are there? Where are you from?

CHILD: Kadhimiya

RIYADH: How old are you?

CHILD: I'm 9 years old.

VOICE: You are nine years old!

CHILD: I'm only a child.

RIYADH: This is type of punishment.


RIYADH: This type of punishment. They can't bear it because they are children.

U.S. MILITARY OFFICIAL: We have looked through every one of these files. These juveniles are dangerous.

BRANCACCIO: So under normal legal procedure­the right of habeas corpus means they can't put you in a prison and then you suddenly disappear. What is he sort of trying to document people who are there?

POITRAS: Yeah, he's trying to get them out. I mean there are people that have been held there for over a year who no charges have been filed against them. So he's working as an advocate on their behalf, and speaking, obviously, to the military in trying to get people released.

RIYADH: Pray that God will help us. We are an occupied country with a puppet government. What do you expect?

VOICE: By God that is right.

BRANCACCIO: What we see in that clip, Dr. Riyadh is no passionate booster for the US policy in Iraq. And he talks about the 'puppet government.' He's what? He's a member of the Sunni minority?

POITRAS: He's a Sunni doctor. He's a member of the Iraq Islamic Party which is the largest Sunni political party­in­in Iraq. And he's definitely against the US occupation, but he's also someone who believes in democracy and representation. So he is participating in political life. So he embodies the contradictions of this war.

BRANCACCIO: And you saw what? His leadership quality?

POITRAS: His leadership quality. His­his ability to talk across a fence, to be talking to detainees and then turn around and­and look at the military and say; this is why this is wrong. And­and he was just really compelling as a character.

POITRAS: And what he said­Abu Ghraib­he says, "We want the world to know what's happening." And I think he had a sense that I might be able to show the world, to capture something and bring it back. And he­he then, after Abu Ghraib, when we were there, he then invited me to his medical clinic.

BRANCACCIO: It's a really heroic act to let you do any of this.

POITRAS: really is. I mean, he's somebody who's­everything he does is motivated by his sense of duty and his sense of faith. And he, for whatever reasons, trusted me and let me in. I mean, it was a risk to take in an American woman into your house. But the fact that I was working alone, I was doing my own camera work, my own sound work, I think made it possible for me to get into places that I never would've gotten into, otherwise.

BRANCACCIO: Now Laura, you speak Arabic?

POITRAS: I don't speak Arabic.

BRANCACCIO: So, I mean, you're alone doing all your camerawork. How do you pull that off?

POITRAS: You know, in that kind of situation you got to make sure you're staying on-story. And I knew that when I was with the family [when] this was gonna be really an important moment. And I just needed to be there to capture it.

BRANCACCIO: One was a glimpse of life in Iraq. Someone goes to their mosque to pray and this is the story they come back with.

3) Antarctic Ice Collapse Linked to Greenhouse Gases
Published on Monday, October 16, 2006 by Reuters
by Alister Doyle

Scientists said on Monday that they had found the first direct evidence linking the collapse of an ice shelf in Antarctica to global warming widely blamed on human activities.

Shifts in winds whipping around the southern Ocean, tied to human emissions of greenhouse gases, had warmed the Antarctic peninsula jutting up toward South America and contributed to the break-up of the Larsen B ice shelf in 2002, they said.

"This is the first time that anyone has been able to demonstrate a physical process directly linking the break-up of the Larsen Ice Shelf to human activity," said Gareth Marshall, lead author of the study at the British Antarctic Survey.

The chunk that collapsed into the Weddell Sea in 2002 was 3,250 sq kms (1,255 sq miles), bigger than Luxembourg or the U.S. state of Rhode Island.

Most climate experts say greenhouse gases, mainly from fossil fuels burned in power plants, factories and cars, are warming the globe and could bring more erosion, floods or rising seas. They are wary of linking individual events -- such as a heatwave or a storm -- to warming.

But the British and Belgian scientists, writing in the Journal of Climate, said there was evidence that global warming and a thinning of the ozone layer over Antarctica, caused by human chemicals, had strengthened winds blowing clockwise around Antarctica.

The Antarctic peninsula's chain of mountains, about 2,000 meters (6,500 ft) high, used to shield the Larsen ice shelf on its eastern side from the warmer winds.

"If the westerlies strengthen the number of times that the warm air gets over the mountain barrier increases quite dramatically," John King, a co-author of the study at the British Antarctic Survey, told Reuters.


The average summer temperatures on the north-east of the Antarctic peninsula had been about 2.2 Celsius (35.96F) over the past 40 years.

But on summer days when winds swept over the mountains into the area the air could warm by 5.5 C (9.9 F). And on the warmest days, temperatures could reach about 10 C (50.00F).

King said temperature records in Antarctica went back only about 50 years but that there was evidence from sediments on the seabed -- which differ if covered by ice or open water -- that the Larsen ice shelf had been in place for 5,000 years.

"Further south on the main Antarctic continent temperatures are pretty stable," he said. "There is no clear direct evidence of human activity affecting the main area."

The collapse of the Larsen B ice shelf did not raise world sea levels because the ice was floating. A brimful glass of water with an ice cube jutting out will not spill if it melts because ice contracts as it melts.

But King said the removal of the floating ice barrier could accelerate the flow of land-based glaciers toward the sea, at least in the short term. That extra ice could raise sea levels.
