Editor's Notes:

Hopefully truth will last beyond time and space. Meanwhile, working with those taking a stand for it, beyond the illusions forced upon us, is a joyful experience. So, here’s another issue of FN with mixed blessings, controversy and facts. Alex Jones and colleagues, who I once thought were extremists, are hitting the mark again and again with integrity journalism. More information is being released on the Oklahoma City and 9/11 false flag operations. And the world is worried about the next one. Those taking a stand for truth are like the white rose resistance with truth on our side. But what is truth as Pontius Pilate pontificated; it can be argued, and perspectives can be shortsighted. So keep reading, researching, digging out the truth, which goes beyond our biased perceptions into a realm of science and reality.

Morning Star

If there was a morning star and I found a path to a mountain reservoir,
And viewed the past in moments of today, I must say, I have found a way.
Chosen, because I choose to do what I came here for,
Realizing I have seen it all before, a deja-vu from a morning star;
Reawakening love to a planet which has strayed much too far.

911 Truthers - Time Is On Our Side
By Douglas Herman
Exclusive to 2-21-7

"911 fantasists pose a mortal danger to popular oppositional campaigns."
-George Monbiot

The Left gatekeepers are at it again. Attempting to "debunk" scientific facts, outright fraud, and the transparent government complicity with the alleged 911 plot and plotters, some influential Leftists (and former critics of the official 911 story) have adopted the official version. When backed against the wall about their change of heart, they resort to sweeping personal attacks and a blatant disregard of the mountains of evidence and testimony involving the greatest unsolved crime of the century.

Monbiot, like fellow Leftists Cockburn ,Chomsky and Goodman have done yeoman work, praiseworthy work, deserving of all the accolades and admiration they've received, for fighting the corporate state, for fighting for the environment, for fighting for impoverished and disenfranchised people around the world. But sadly, regards 911, they somehow fail to see the connection: A soulless political body capable of waging a pre-emptive war causing hundreds of thousands of casualties while spreading radioactive poisons around the world, is EXACTLY the type of machine capable of carrying out---or implementing---the 911 attack.

Monbiot wrote about 911 skeptics, Truthers as they've styled themselves, that they suffer from an "epidemic of gibberish." Monbiot then adds: "Why do I bother with these morons? Because they are destroying the movements some of us have spent a long time trying to build. Those of us who believe that the crucial global issues -climate change, the Iraq war, nuclear proliferation, inequality - are insufficiently debated in parliament or congress, that corporate power stands too heavily on democracy, that war criminals, cheats and liars are not being held to account."

Every Truther I know wants desperately to hold war criminal, cheats and liars accountable. In fact, we've drawn a straight line from 911 to the faked war on terror. Far from being "morons," most of us are skeptics, patriots, armchair detectives, veterans and scholars---following in the footsteps of other skeptics (truthers) like Diogenes, Plato, Paul of Tarsus, Galileo, Tom Paine, Thoreau and two-time medal of Honor winner (and Truther), Smedley Butler.

We do not suffer fools, or government apologists gladly. We do not overlook the mountains of suspicious evidence, of eyewitness reports, of pure scientific data. Indeed many Truthers have become amateur metallurgists, structural engineers, physicists, pamphleteers, logicians, statisticians

Time is on our side. Heretics now, we sleep secure in the knowledge the truth will emerge one day. Time is on our side, as more and more disgruntled (and dying) 911 first responders, outraged former US government officials and knowledgeable insiders come forward.

As the cutthroats in power devise additional war crimes---the predicted nuclear attack on Iran or another false flag 911 "attack"--we Truthers realize our ranks will swell. Inevitably but tragically. Even government apologists like Monbiot and Guy Smith can only concur so long with the official government version of 911, before they've lost all credibility forever.

The desperate, final twenty months of the current criminal regime will likely include further bloodthirsty actions, cementing our case that those in power are responsible for 911. To any knowledgeable Truther, those in power devised a flawed but diabolical plan on September 11, 2001 and nearly got away with the crime. And although a complicit media is doing yeoman like work (take a bow, George) to dampen skepticism, more and more people are asking questions, demanding answers.

The BBC Crime Family

Like most believers in the BBC (Bush, Blair, Cheney) version of 911 events, debunkers claim the White House---George Bush particularly--- is too inept to implement 911. Too dumb. They claim a bungler like Bush, who bungled the Iraq War, would have bungled 911. Sadly, Monbiot and Cockburn have studied little world history. Consider how a bungled anarchist and second-rate painter grabbed power in Germany (with the backing of bankers and industrialists, Prescott Bush among others) and cemented fascist power there with a false flag operation called the Reichstag Fire. Then this "bungler" masterminded a series of attacks on surrounding countries, conquering and occupying many of them in the process.

When the Left gatekeepers accuse the 911 Truth Movement of being "distracted" in opposition to the military-corporate-media triad, we Truthers can only shake our collective heads. As time passes, those misguided patriots (or disinfo pros), may yet realize that 911 was the golden key to the Pandora's box.

They may yet realize the 911 attack was a state-sponsored, state implemented operation carried out by professionals, involving several tiers, several hierarchies of power. Needless to say, when a former German corporal, former imprisoned anarchist, former "bungler" named Adolf Hitler, devised a daring yet diabolical attack plan, those who implemented the plan---

Generals Guderian, von Rundstedt and Rommel---were extremely competent and coldly professional.

Time is on our side. Far from being "fantasists posing a mortal danger" we Truthers see the bigger picture. The logical picture. The scientific picture. The historical picture. The overwhelming, incriminating, body-of-evidence picture.

Far from embracing the 911 conspiracy as some sort of warm and fuzzy "security blanket," as suggested by a former TV producer, we prefer to be Diogenes with his lantern, Galileo with his telescope, Tom Paine with his Common Sense. Light years ahead of sunshine patriots.

Footnote: I spend a lot of time lately reading a website wholly devoted to 911. I follow the mostly intelligent remarks and the comments by the trolls. The grassroot Spirit of '76 is alive there at If you haven't discovered it yet, go there for your "fantasist" fix. The only mortal danger is to the trolls and disinfo pros.

NORTHEAST USA – “Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic” goes on tour for two weeks in April with the support of 9/11 truth groups across the region. The tour opens on April 10, 2007, when Michael Berger presents his film at the University of Hartford, with Q & A following. The 69-minute film documentary examines the startling events of September 11, 2001 from a scientific perspective.

On September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center Twin Towers disintegrated in a manner that some scientists say resembled deliberately calculated demolitions. The facts open for discussion include: at 5:20 p.m. that same day another building, the 47-story WTC 7, completely collapsed within 70 feet of its footprint in 6.6 seconds. These three buildings became the first such structures to ever suffer complete collapse due to fire and structural damage.

“The dramatic collapse of World Trade Center 7 is something everyone ought to see…
It really does have the characteristics of an explosive demolition.”

– Dr. Steven Jones, physicist, author of
“Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?”

“Improbable Collapse – The Demolition of our Republic,” closely examines one of the world’s worst catastrophes from a civil engineering perspective. Using photo and video footage, as well as expert scientific testimony, the film thoroughly analyzes the official reports, offering varied criticisms of the official findings, while presenting a more plausible hypothesis. Both government investigations and the mainstream media have quietly ignored the findings from scientific experts.

“Improbable Collapse – The Demolition of our Republic” is produced by Michael Berger and Connect the Dots LLC. As the media coordinator for, Berger has appeared on ABC World News Tonight, CNN Showbiz Tonight, and Scarborough Country as well as dozens of radio appearances including a recent debate with Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine.

9/11 - "Norman Mineta" Rats Out "Dick Cheney"

"Norman Mineta (US Secretary of Transportation) testifies that Dick Cheney was operationally aware of flight 77 as it approached the Pentagon. The government has consistently stated that it did not know the whereabouts of the hijacked aircraft before they crashed. In this video Norman Mineta testifies before the 9/11 Commission that he was present and personally observed VP Dick Cheney in the Presidential Emergency Operating Center tracking the exact position"

The Cloud Over Cheney
By Dan Froomkin

Wednesday, February 21, 2007; 2:12 PM

"What is this case about?" special counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald asked in his rebuttal to the defense's closing arguments yesterday in the Scooter Libby perjury trial.

"Is it about something bigger?"

And while Fitzgerald never directly answered that second question, he at long last made it quite clear that the depth of Vice President Cheney's role in the leaking of the identity of a CIA operative is one of the central mysteries that Libby's alleged lies prevented investigators from resolving.

"There is a cloud over the vice president . . . And that cloud remains because this defendant obstructed justice," Fitzgerald said.

"There is a cloud over the White House. Don't you think the FBI and the grand jury and the American people are entitled to straight answers?" Fitzgerald asked the jury.

Libby, Fitzgerald continued, "stole the truth from the justice system."

After literally years of keeping his public pronouncements about the case to an absolute minimum, Fitzgerald yesterday finally let slip a bit of the speculation that many of us have long suspected has lurked just beneath the surface of his investigation.

Suddenly it wasn't just the defendant alone, it was "they" who decided to tell reporters about Wilson's wife working for the CIA. "To them," Fitzgerald said, "she wasn't a person, she was an argument."

And it was pretty clear who "they" was: Libby and his boss, Cheney.

3) Feds cancel Divine Strake explosion

Feds cancel Divine Strake explosion
February 22, 2007

WASHINGTON - The government said Thursday it is canceling Divine Strake, a controversial non-nuclear explosion in the Nevada desert.

"I have become convinced that it's time to look at alternative methods that obviate the need for this type of large-scale test," Defense Threat Reduction Agency Director James Tegnelia said in a statement.

Divine Strake was planned as a 700-ton test of the nation's ability to defeat underground facilities that produce and store weapons of mass destruction.

But it prompted a lawsuit and widespread opposition in Utah and Nevada, where critics feared it would kick up radioactive material from decades-old experiments.

DTRA Release:
Feb. 22, 2007

Cancellation of Proposed Divine Strake Experiment

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has decided to cancel the proposed Divine Strake experiment. “I have become convinced that it’s time to look at alternative methods that obviate the need for this type of large-scale test,” said DTRA Director Dr. James A. Tegnelia. This decision was not based on any technical information that indicates the test would produce harm to workers, the general public, or the environment.

Divine Strake was a scientific experiment designed to significantly advance the nation’s ability to defeat underground facilities that produce and store weapons of mass destruction. The experiment would have entailed detonating a large amount of a common blasting agent over an existing tunnel at the Nevada Test Site. It was to be the largest in a series of experiments that relied on the specific geology at that location.

DTRA will attempt to develop alternative scientific means for obtaining the important data that this experiment would have provided. Such methods to assess capabilities to defeat underground facilities do not currently exist. The agency will develop advanced analysis techniques and conduct confirmatory experiments at a much smaller scale to assist in developing new capabilities to defeat underground facilities.

There is a national consensus on the need to improve conventional capabilities to defeat underground targets that pose a threat to the United States. “DTRA remains committed to help develop non-nuclear means to defeat underground targets. I am optimistic that we will succeed,” said Tegnelia.

- - New OKC Revelations Spotlight FBI Involvement In Bombing
Nichols' claim that McVeigh had government handlers supported by huge weight of known evidence

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Prison Planet
Thursday, February 22, 2007

New claims by Oklahoma City Bombing conspirator Terry Nichols that Timothy McVeigh was being steered by a high-level FBI official are supported by a plethora of evidence that proves McVeigh did not act alone and that authorities had prior warnings and were complicit in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported yesterday,

Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols says a high-ranking FBI official "apparently" was directing Timothy McVeigh in the plot to blow up a government building and might have changed the original target of the attack, according to a new affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.

The official and other conspirators are being protected by the federal government "in a cover-up to escape its responsibility for the loss of life in Oklahoma," Nichols claims in a Feb. 9 affidavit.

Documents that supposedly help back up his allegations have been sealed to protect information in them, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah had no comment on the allegations. The FBI and Justice Department in Washington, D.C., also declined comment.

In another report, the Deseret Morning News named the FBI agent at Larry Potts, but that information has now been sealed by the court.

Potts was no stranger to anti-government confrontations, having been the lead FBI agent at Ruby Ridge in 1992, which led to the shooting death of Vicki Weaver, the wife of separatist Randy Weaver.Potts also was reportedly involved in the 51-day siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas in 1993, which resulted in a fire that killed 81 Branch Davidian followers.

Potts retired from the FBI under intense pressure and criticism for the cover-up of an order to allow agents to shoot anyone seen leaving the Weaver cabin at Ruby Ridge.

"McVeigh said he believed Potts was manipulating him and forcing him to 'go off script,' which I understood meant to change the target of the bombing," Nichols stated.

The affidavit was filed in a lawsuit brought by attorney Jesse Trentadue, whose brother Kenneth was tortured and beaten to death in an Oklahoma City federal prison in 1995. Authorities claimed Trentadue had committed suicide but he was being held in a suicide proof cell at the time and autopsy photos of his body showed he had been shocked with a stun gun, bruised, burned, sliced and then hung.

Jesse Trentadue has amassed evidence that his brother was mistaken for one of Timothy McVeigh's alleged bombing accomplices and in attempting to get him to talk Federal agents went too far and then tried to instigate a cover-up of the murder.

Just like 9/11, the official story of the Oklahoma City Bombing, that McVeigh alone carried out the attack using a fertilizer truck bomb, is contradicted by a plethora of eyewitness account as well as physical and circumstantial evidence.

4) The Apollo Moon Landings Are Science Fiction
by Bart Sibrel

The Space Shuttle, so far, has killed fourteen people, merely trying to attain an orbit about two hundred fifty miles above the Earth. How is it then, that a third of a century ago, with less computing power in the entire rocket than in a present day twenty dollar Wal-Mart watch, NASA claims to have gone 100,000% farther, six different times between 1969 and 1972, landing on another celestial body and then returning, without ever killing anyone? How could they have powered air conditioning in two hundred fifty degree heat for three days with batteries? Why is the "second round" of "returning" to the moon estimated to be no earlier than half a century after the first? (Would there be a fifty-year span between the first and second trips across the Atlantic in an airplane?)

If the moon landings were, as we believe, a government deception, then George Orwell's comment, "whoever controls the past, controls the future" is a scary wakeup call to insist that our government reform to the truthfulness of our founding father "who could not tell a lie." Otherwise, the powers that be will continue their addiction to deception and we all will be worse off for it.

About the Director: Bart Sibrel

Bart Sibrel has been making movies for twenty years, during which time he has owned three television production companies and worked for two of the three major networks. His national credits include films for NBC, FOX, CNN, The Nashville Network (TNN), Lifetime, and BET. His top awards from the American Motion Picture Society include Best Cinematography and Best Editing.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: How could such a secret be kept from the world with so many people involved? (Didn't NASA have tens of thousands of people working on the Apollo project?)

A: This is the same logical question I asked before I did any research. Yet after having done eight years of investigation, I discovered that, in fact, very few people were involved in the actual faking. NASA, indeed, did have tens of thousands of people working constructing the nuts and bolts of the project. One team worked on the spacecraft hatch, another on the astronaut's boot, yet none of them saw an overview of the entire project, only those at the very top of the bureaucratic pyramid. All of those NASA guys at the computer consoles that you saw prior to the launch were receiving the exact same information as their colleagues sitting beside them, which was fed to all of them by a simulation computer program. If you look at the footage ten seconds prior to launch, they are all kicked back watching television, just like the rest of us. Apollo astronauts from later or previous missions were the ones at the real consoles. We know from the newly discovered behind-the-scenes footage that each crew was on the rocket during the launch. They went up in front of witnesses, splashed down in front of witnesses, yet the evidence recently uncovered proves that they never left Earth orbit. Apollo 11 was supposed to be the greatest event in human history, yet there were only three (government employee) witnesses and, for the first time ever, no independent press coverage of such an historical event.

With Cold War tensions running high, those who knew the truth went along with the deception to fool the Soviets that we had technological superiority.

In 1957 Time Magazine had on its cover "The Smartest Man in America" (the latest winner of the most popular TV trivia game show at that time.) It was later uncovered that the contestant received the answers in advance from the show's producers because he was widely loved by the viewers. In fact, one hundred twenty contestants and staff initially swore on the Bible during a grand jury investigation that the television show was not rigged. Most later recanted, and it is now known they all lied. If all these people were willing to lie for a little money, how much more for alleged national security? The fact is, Time Magazine was wrong. The best way to fool the world was to fool the media.

Q: What about all of the people refuting your accusations point-by-point?

A: Given the pride associated with this alleged accomplishment, it is natural that many people seek to refute our claims. It is not difficult to make up a plausible-sounding argument to refute almost any claim. However, we have yet to see any such argument that does not fail under critical examination.

"The likelihood of one individual being right increases in direct proportion to the intensity to which others are trying to prove him wrong."
- - Harry Segall

Q: What about laser reflectors on the moon (allegedly left by Apollo) that scientists bounce light beams off of?

A: The Russians have successfully placed such reflectors on the surface of the moon, yet they have never claimed to have put a man on the moon. The reflectors were dropped there by unmanned probes. It should also be noted that the moon's surface will naturally reflect signals; communications were carried out as early as the 1950s by bouncing signals off of the moon.

Q: How could the scientists of the world be fooled?

A: When scientists fail to require independent duplication of such an outlandish claim after over 30 years have passed, science is degraded to the status of being just another religion. They claim to have gone 240,000 miles in 1969. However, since 1972 no one has gone more than 400 miles from the Earth. This is a case of the scientists of the world not doing their jobs and otherwise being caught asleep at the wheel.

The leading scientists today who say that the Van Allen Radiation Belt is not lethal (who were generally in preschool at the time of the first alleged moon landing) do so by the following deduction: "The Apollo astronauts went through the radiation belt on their way to the moon and survived, so it must not be lethal." They are, of course, assuming that the missions were authentic, when, in fact, they were not. The leading scientists are wrong. Has this ever historically happened?

Q: If A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon is such Earth-shattering evidence, why are you selling it instead of offering it for free?

A: The film is Earth-shattering evidence, indeed. The fact is that investors put up five hundred thousand dollars to produce the film, and they would like to recoup a little of it. This is simply the concept of exchange; when someone does work to provide you with something of value, you compensate them when you receive benefit from that work.

Thirty bucks for a half a million dollar film is not bad, if you ask me.
(The lie cost every citizen $800--the truth... $30.)

Q: What are the running times for each of the DVD's?

A: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon is 47 minutes in length. Astronauts Gone Wild is 53 minutes long. Apollo 11 Post-Flight Press Conference is 1hour, 23 minutes long. Apollo 11 Monkey Business is 1 hour, 48 minutes long.
