Editor’s Notes:

Top on the list is a new Zogby Poll that determined that more than half of Americans want Congress to press a probe to investigate Bush-Cheney regarding the events of September 11, 2001. But more telling is that 67% fault the 9/11 Commission for not investigating the anomalous collapse of World Trade Center 7. While the mainstream public is questioning the Bush/Cheney actions, more notable people are speaking out. Joel S. Hirschhorn, PhD, a former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Senior Staff Member, has also called for a new 9/11 investigation. Plus, to add more truth to the 9/11 truth film arsenal, Richard Gage, AIA, Founding Member of provides a press release on a new DVD examining the World Trade Center building collapses. More Than 150 architects, engineers, and demolition experts call for new Congressional Investigation with subpoena power. In this first item, too, announces the webcast of the 9/11 Truth: Ready for Mainstream event this weekend in NYC.

The idea in the article in item 2 is just plain crazy, “Cheney Orders Media To Sell Attack On Iran.” But Dick Cheney has a record of making the media do his bidding. The New Yorker magazine reported that in a conversation with a member of a top neoconservative institution in Washington, they learned ‘that "instructions" had been passed on from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day.' Following that are articles on False Flag Terrorism. If you want a good film on the subject, check out "Terrorstorm: A History of Government Sponsored Terrorism" on googlevideo or get a DVD via mail from

In the third item, John Gallagher gives a first hand account of his questioning Candidate Dennis Kucinich on his consideration of giving Executive Clemency to Leonard Peltier. One would think based on all the evidence that Leonard did not shoot the Agents, and was involved in protecting families from a Cointelpro Pine Ridge crime wave, and after more than 30 years of hard time, that this would be a no brainer. This item, too, links to other scape-goats, Lori Berenson, incarcerated in Peru, and Sitcha, Richard in Massachusetts. They and many others are in prison to cover-up the real crimes of corrupt governments and agencies.

The Message

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.

Let who you are ring out and resonate
in every word and every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There's no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.

What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.

You are the message.

Posted at - September 6 2007

Kansas City, MO (Zogby International) September 6, 2007 - As America nears the sixth anniversary of the world-churning events of September 11, 2001, a new Zogby International poll finds a majority of Americans still await a Congressional investigation of President Bush' and Vice President Cheney's actions before, during and after the 9/11 attacks. Over 30% also believe Bush and/or Cheney should be immediately impeached by the House of Representatives.

The poll also found that over two-thirds of Americans say the 9/11 Commission should have investigated the still unexplained collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001.

- - Congressional Technology Member Calls for New 9/11 Investigation
Joel S. Hirschhorn, PhD
September 6, 2007
Former Congressional Office of Technology Assessment
Senior Staff Member Calls for New Investigation of 9/11
by Alan Miller

Sept. 5, 2007 – In an online editorial yesterday, Joel S. Hirschhorn, PhD, former Senior Staff Member of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment (OTA), called for a new investigation of 9/11. “First, let the technical truth emerge. Then, if necessary, cope with the inevitable political, conspiracy and other questions. But let us not allow a possible painful truth block the primary task of determining once and for all what caused the collapse of the WTC towers and building no. 7.”

Dr. Hirschhorn is a nationally recognized engineer who has testified before Congress more than 50 times on technology, science, and environmental issues. In addition to his work for the OTA, Dr. Hirschhorn also served as Director of Environment, Energy and Natural Resources for the National Governors Association.

Dr. Hirschhorn admitted to his own personal “growing skepticism about the official WTC story”. He wrote “analyses by many experts reveal the collapse of the three WTC buildings was not caused by the two airplanes exploding into the twin towers.” He noted “the general view is that the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition.”

Dr. Hirschhorn endorsed the efforts of a new group, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, to launch a new, honest and comprehensive investigation that considers all the evidence and which examines the possibility of controlled demolition.

Dr. Hirschhorn issued a challenge to supporters of the official account of 9/11, “If those that believe the official 9/11 story - especially elected officials - trust their views, then let them support a serious effort to test the validity of the controlled demolition hypothesis. If they fear and reject doing so, then let us see that as suspicious and unacceptable.”

He concluded, “Horrific possible answers can cause us to shun a question. But clearing our minds of the fear of painful truths is essential to clearing our nation of destructive lies. Otherwise, we stay stuck in a delusional democracy."

The full text of Dr. Hirschhorn’s statement can be found at

Prior to his 13 years of service at the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, Dr. Hirschhorn was Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison from 1965 - 1978. He has a Bachelors and Masters degree in Metallurgical Engineering and a PhD in Materials Engineering. He has been a consultant to industrial and chemical companies, DOE laboratories, state governments, and public interest organizations. He currently is a Member of the Board of Directors of the National Foundation for Environmental Education and a Member of the Board of Directors of Sustainability Now! He is the author of more than 150 papers, articles, guest editorials, and book chapters on environmental science and technology.

Dr. Hirschhorn is one of 200 engineers and architects who have publicly criticized the official account of 9/11. Statements and short bios of many of the others can be found at

- - Twenty-Two Things We Now Know Six Years After 9/11
By Bernard Weiner, The Crisis Papers
September 4, 2007

Each year around the anniversary of 9/11, I summarize what we ordinary citizens have learned since that awful day in 2001. This is the sixth annual look backwards, an update based on new information about those horrific events and what followed.

What we now more fully understand is how the Cheney-Bush Administration utilized the murderous terrorism of 9/11 as the one-size-fits-all justification for their unfolding domestic and foreign agenda.

By and large, one can sum up that overall agenda as: Amass and control power in the U.S. and much of the world, and, in cahoots with their corporate supporters, loot the treasury. All this was to be carried out secretly, with no accountability.



1. Iraq Plan Preceded 9/11.

2. Unanswered 9/11 Questions.

3. The Facts of 9/11..

Bernard Weiner, Ph.D., has taught government & international relations at universitites in Wasington and California, worked as a writer/editor with the San Francisco Chronicle for two decades, and currently co-edits The Crisis Papers ( .

General Strike on 9/11/2007
By Michael Collins
Washington, DC

We’ve endured seven years of cascading failures from 911 to Iraq enabled by rigged elections and supported by a decadent set of politicians who lack the will to even fight for themselves.

But let’s not lose hope. We’ll get a Democratic majority in Congress. They’ll do something! We’ll be out of trouble in no time. Plus, we’ll have the type of investigations we need to get the real solution in place – impeachment. It will be like a Roman triumph – the Truth enters the Capitol to the cheers of the people all across America.

We tried that. It failed.

2) Cheney Orders Media To Sell Attack On Iran

- - Cheney Orders Media To Sell Attack On Iran
Fox News, Wall Street Journal instructed to launch PR blitz for upcoming military strike

Paul Joseph Watson

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

Dick Cheney has ordered top Neo-Con media outlets, including Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, to unleash a PR blitz to sell a war with Iran from today, according to Barnett Rubin, the highly respected Afghanistan expert at New York University.

The New Yorker magazine reports that Rubin had a conversation with a member of a top neoconservative institution in Washington, who told him that "instructions" had been passed on from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day.

"It will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects, writes Rubin, "It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this—they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”

Rubin subsequently confirmed with a second source that the propaganda coup had been launched and the individual, another top Neo-Con at a major think tank, had this to say about it: “I am a Republican. I am a conservative. But I’m not a raging lunatic. This is lunatic.”

- - Is Bush Staging Nukes for Iran?
by Eric Garris

That is the question Larry Johnson asks over at TPMCafe. Johnson is a former counter-terrorism official with the CIA and the State Department. Johnson questions the official story about the nukes being “mistakenly” flown over the US. A retired B-52 pilot reminds him that the only times you put weapons on a plane is when they are on alert or if you are tasked to move the weapons to a specific site. Barksdale AFB is being used as a jumping off point for Mideast operations.

Johnson is “certain that the pilots of this plane did not just make a last minute decision to strap on some nukes and take them for a joy ride.” Johnson asks: “Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons at a base conducting Middle East operations?” Johnson’s pilot friend believes that “someone on the inside obviously leaked the info that the planes were carrying nukes. A B-52 landing at Barksdale is a non-event. A B-52 landing with nukes. That is something else.”

Johnson wonders: “Did someone at Barksdale try to indirectly warn the American people that the Bush Administration is staging nukes for Iran?”

I certainly hope that is the case. We need responsible officers that are unwilling to let our leaders get away with dragging us closer to war.

UPDATE: The Military Times newspapers, who originally broke the story leaked by unnamed military officers, reports that the squadron commander has been relieved of duty following investigation. The papers also reported that there were six, rather than five, nuclear weapons that were transported across the country.

- - False Flag Terrorism

"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it:

False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension.

The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy's flag was hung instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, it was called a "false flag" attack.

There are many examples of false flag attacks through history. For example, it is widely known that the Nazis, in Operation Himmler, faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. And it has now been persuasively argued ­ as shown, for example, in this History Channel video ­ that Nazis set fire to their own parliament, the Reichstag, and blamed that fire on others. The Reichstag fire was the watershed event which justified Hitler's seizure of power and suspension of liberties.

And in the early 1950s, agents of an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind "evidence" implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers). Israel's Defense Minister was brought down by the scandal, along with the entire Israeli government. Click here for verification.

The Russian KGB apparently conducted a wave of bombings in Russia in order to justify war against Chechnya and put Vladimir Putin into power (see also this short essay and this report). And the Turkish government has been caught bombing its own and blaming it on a rebel group in order to justify a crackdown on that group. Muslim governments also play this game. For example, the well-respected former Indonesian president claimed that their government had a role in the Bali bombings.

This sounds nuts, right? You've never heard of this "false flag terrorism," where a government attacks its own people then blames others in order to justify its goals, right? And you are skeptical of the statements discussed above? Please take a look at these historical quotes:

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - U.S. President James Madison

"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.

What about the U.S.?

Note this DVD - "Terrorstorm: A History of Government Sponsored Terrorism"

Alex Jones takes us on a course through history documenting false flag operations, including the Gulf of Tonkin, the USS Liberty, operation Gladio, the Madrid bombings and 9/11/01. The film exposes how Governments have long staged false-flag terror events in order to achieve political and sociological ends. Once you've seen the pattern of greed and renegade shadow governments, then, it isn't difficult to see the foul play of the Bush administrations and a new world disorder, especially since September 11, 2001.

3) Kucinich Recently on Leonard Peltier

- - Kucinich Recently on Leonard Peltier
by John Gallagher

I had the opportunity to ask Democratic Presidential candidate and Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH-10) at the August 25th anti-war rally in Kennebunkport, Maine about his stand on granting clemency for Leonard Peltier after his speech to, as according to estimates reported in the Boston Globe, from over 1,200 to about 3,000 persons at the rally.

At first, during Congressman Kucinich's speech, a few of us held up a sign, which stated, "Mike Gravel would seek to free Leonard Peltier, why not Dennis Kucinich?"

Afterward, I approached the congressman and asked if he would grant Leonard Peltier executive clemency. He answered that he would review the case. I reminded him that Bill Clinton promised to review the case. He said he can't be responsible for what Clinton did.

I also reminded him that I posed the question to him in 2004 and he promised me that he would get back to me on that. I also stated that he should think from the perspective of someone who has been incarcerated 31 years and who has had empty promises

He stated that he just cannot let someone free without reviewing the case and it's the president’s responsibility to review the case. I asked him why he would have to wait to become president to review his case. I mentioned Mike Gravel's statement of clemency and that other Congresspersons have come forward supporting clemency. I mentioned a letter signed by Nancy Pelosi in the early 90's. (this was a letter to then Attorney General Janet Reno signed by 16 Congresspersons, including Nancy Pelosi to examine whether justice was served in Mr. Peltier's case.) The letter can be viewed at:

I also mentioned the late Senator Paul Wellstone's support for executive clemency. Dennis Kucinich's facial expression changed when I mentioned Wellstone's support. He said he would look into the case and I reminded him that I would keep in correspondence on his website and

I continued to ask Dennis Kucinich supporters to contact Dennis and urge him to take a stand on clemency for Leonard. Many supporters said they would. I marched the two miles with my sign and saw Dennis Kucinich walk by me at the end of the march. By this time I had the sign rolled up. I said, "Take a stand, please." He tapped me on the shoulder and said, "you got it."

In conclusion I would urge Leonard Peltier supporters to contact Dennis Kucinich and urge him to take a stand on clemency for Leonard Peltier. He needs to understand; "You want my vote? Free Leonard Peltier."

Here are some contact sites:

Leonard Peltier has been in prison 11536 days of ILLEGAL IMPRISONMENT

For updated information, visit the web site of the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee

Free Leonard Peltier -- "Amnesty International considers Leonard Peltier to be a political prisoner whose avenues of redress have long been exhausted....Amnesty International recognizes that a retrial is no longer a feasible option and believes that Leonard Peltier should be immediately and unconditionally released." Documents show that although the prosecution and government pointed the finger at Peltier for shooting FBI agents at close range during the trial in 1976, for three years the prosecution withheld critical ballistic test results proving that the fatal bullets could not have come from the gun tied to Leonard Peltier. This trial also denied evidence of self defense. The U.S. Prosecutor, during subsequent oral arguments, stated: "we can't prove who shot those agents". The Eighth Circuit found that "There is a possibility that the jury would have acquitted Leonard Peltier had the records and data improperly withheld from the defense been available to him in order to better exploit and reinforce the inconsistencies casting strong doubts upon the government's case." Yet, a new trial was denied. Judge Heaney, who authored the denial now supports Mr. Peltier's release, stating that the FBI used improper tactics to gain Mr. Peltier's conviction. A good way to learn about Leonard Peltier is to read his book: Prison Writings: My Life Is My Sun Dance.

- - Free Lori Berenson

On November 30, 1995, Lori was pulled off of a public bus in Lima, Perú. Like thousands of Peruvians, she was detained by the anti-terrorist police, tried for treason by a hooded military tribunal under draconian anti-terrorism laws and condemned to life in prison. On the 10th anniversary of her arrest, Lori releases a commentary. Lori Berenson, a US citizen, is currently being held as a political prisoner in Cajamarca, Perú. After serving more than a five years in harsh Peruvian jails high in the Andes, her conviction for treason against Perú and her life sentence were overturned. In June 2001 she was cleared of terrorism-related charges but convicted of collaboration, and sentenced to twenty years in prison in a trial that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights claims completely violated her rights.

- - 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!
