POPULAR MECHANICS CAUGHT LYING ABOUT 9/11.
Michael Chertoff’s Cousin, Benjamin Chertoff, was involved in Government Sponsored Propaganda to disinform Americans about the facts of 9/11.
Popular Mechanics makes two NEW outrageous and unsupportable claims.
They claim that 25% of the south face of WTC 7 was “carved away” by falling debris from the collapse of the twin towers earlier in the day on 9/11 (a blatant lie FOR WHICH THERE IS NO PROOF)
They claim that DNA evidence recovered at Ground Zero confirms that the hijackers were on the planes – a TOTAL LIE.
When forced to explain where the investigators would have obtained prior DNA material with which to cross-reference purported DNA samples found in the rubble of 9/11, the Popular Mechanics Government Shill was SPEECHLESS and STAMMERING.
DEBUNKING THE DEBUNKERS
Popular Mechanics Debunking of 9/11 RIPPED TO SHREDS in radio interview.
Popular Mechanics wrote what government disinformation propagandists hold forth as the definitive debunking of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories. The magazine version has been released as a book, and whereas most publishers are eager to obtain interviews and PR in the Mainstream media to promote book sales, these publishers are CANCELING INTERVIEWS in the aftermath of this radio interview:
Is this why Popular Mechanics canceled some appearances? Listen to this MP3 file of Popular Mechanics on the Charles Goyette show in Phoenix. Charles has Research Editor Davin Coburn backpedaling big time. Pass this MP3 file to any one who is leaning on Popular Mechanics to support their continued belief in the official story.

Michael Chertoff, appointed by President Bush to head the Homeland Security Department, may have shielded from criminal prosecution a former client suspected by law enforcement of having funneled millions of dollars directly to Osama Bin Laden while in charge of the U.S. Government’s 9.11 investigation.
“But in a hint of the gravity of his legal predicament, he was represented in court by Michael Chertoff, the former U.S. attorney in Newark and counsel to U.S. Sen. Alfonse D’Amato’s Whitewater investigation.” Link
Yes, the soon-to-be Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff represented a known bin Laden operative. Perhaps more troubling, Chertoff also headed the U.S.’s investigation into the September 11th attack. From the New Jersey Law Journal, August 4, 2003:
“The Sept. 11 investigation was supervised by Assistant Attorney General Michael Chertoff, head of the U.S. Criminal Justice Division, who is now a Third Circuit judge.” Link
More on Chertoff from the New Yorker, November 5, 2001:
“Since the September 11th terrorist attacks, Chertoff’s office has become the funnel for what is probably the most important criminal investigation in American history, as prosecutors and F.B.I. investigators pour in to seek the boss’s approval. What leads can we use from the search of a hijacker’s car in Portland, Maine? Where do the hijackers’ credit-card records lead?… For day-to-day decisions, Chertoff has the last word”…

What Is The US Government Trying To Hide In This Ongoing Mysterious Case?
“U.S. officials and insurance companies representing victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks are locked in an unusual legal standoff, stemming from the government’s refusal to admit it has the alleged mastermind of the attacks in custody. The insurance companies want the U.S. Justice Department to serve summonses and complaints on Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and other militants named as defendants in a lawsuit in federal court in New York City. But U.S. authorities said they have never officially acknowledged holding the men…. A spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office declined Friday to discuss the case.”

“[In July 2000] A Muslim convert, [Australian Jack] Roche was prepared to become an informant, his attorney says, and provide information about Al Qaeda; its Southeast Asian affiliate, Jemaah Islamiah; and their goal of staging an attack in a Western country…. According to evidence presented in court, Australian and U.S. authorities bungled at least six chances to learn what Roche knew, including the whereabouts of alleged terrorist mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who, it is said, was even then plotting the Sept. 11 attacks. U.S. authorities had been trying to catch Mohammed since the mid-1990s. ‘He had their phone numbers,’ said Hylton Quail, Roche’s lawyer. ‘He had their e-mail addresses. He knew where they lived. He knew how they worked. He was like a spy who tried to come in from the cold and found the door was locked.’12:59
What’s surprising to me is that Disney’s new largest shareholder, well-known for his support of democratic and Democratic principles, has not put a stop to this nonsense. I’m talking aobut Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs, who sold Pixar to Disney this year. Steve! Do the right thing! Stop this swift-boat garbage from soiling our airwaves!Comment by ToddA — September 8, 2006
Found this about a fifth of the way down: 9/11 - Five Raytheon employees are on three of the four hijacked planes.
More: CNN correspondent Jamie McIntyre reporting live from the Pentagon says that there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the building.
Even More: Within minutes of the explosion at the Pentagon, the FBI confiscates security videos that had captured the crash from a nearby gas station and hotel.
Plenty more there, for curious minds. The brain-dead need only chant conspiracy, or Mayor McCheese.

Anyone who read Bamford’s “A Pretext for War” should know he tried to tell the world what was going on a long time ago. That was one of the most informative books I’ve ever read about the Bush Administration’s lies to promote this illegal war. Read it if you haven’t already. He reported, at the time, ground breaking news no one else had the balls to report.Comment by Jamie — September 8, 2006

Big B and the Hijack Teams
Al-Jazeera airs a pre-9/11 bin Laden tape that shows him meeting with the alleged hijackers. I think this is far more credible than anything the 9/11 Truth Movement (yawn) has thus far surfaced. And just as a side note (I plan on writing more about this soon), I think the objective of the Truth Movement is valid: seeking the truth. But come on, really they are just pushing conspiracy theories about what they know for a FACT to have happened that horrible day.
Of course there are plenty of unanswered questions to uncover. But it has more to do with negligence (read James Ridgeway's latest book) than the a government intent on killing innocent people so they can grab some more oil in the Middle East.
Yes, they are partially after oil. No, there is no hard evidence which shows that our government (sic) flew commercial airliners into the WTC or hailed a missile in to the Pentagon. And even if the Truth Movement turns out to be correct (it never will), that still won't get us out of Iraq. In fact, it would stop absolutely nothing. So undercover the mystery about JFK while you are all at it. It won't bring the asshole back from the dead.
A Festival of Gullibility
That "festival of gullibility" predicted by Martin Amis has apparently dawned, as Zogby finds that almost a third of all Democrats -- and nearly 40 percent of Independents, along with of course, 65 percent of Republicans -- believe Saddam Hussein was connected to the 9/11 attacks.

You know, whenever I start to get down and think that 99% of the world is worthless, I’m proven right. This is little more than an attempt to prime people for the November elections. Democrats caused 911?? What about the guy in the White House at the time? No blame for him? Making Dems look weak on terrorism is all the Republican party has left. Not that it’s a good ploy, because Republicans are horrible on terrorism. They’re good on looking good. That’s all.
This administration and The RNC has been using and exploiting 911 since it happened. Why stop there? Why not use the Holocaust too? Heck, throw in the bombing of Hiroshima. It’s a sales event and every tragedy must go!
Gaah. Every day, it gets worse in this country. Every day, I get more and more sick of the US and the vast majority of its inhabitants. It makes me sick to know that Gay Marriage is such a big topic, while real problems get ignored. It makes me sick that so many conservative christians support a man and administration that are so diametrically opposed to the teachings of Christ. I’ve had enough of this country, this administration, conservative christians and the like. Stick a fork in me, I am done.
And if any of you say something like “If you don’t like our country, move” to me, then I respond “Give me enough money to afford a move and I will. Tomorrow.”
There is so much more you don’t know. This is the tip of the iceberg, the very tip. We didn’t list the still secret Cheney energy meetings, the destruction of the environment, the manipulated reports about global warming, the horrendous national debt, or the rampant cronyism and corruption in the WH, among so much else. The above is an extremely short list, but for the sake of readability, it will have to do.
Tragically, what you DO know has come from the very people who see to it that you know ONLY what they want you to know. What you DO know has come from the corporate media sources that get their talking points from the very same people who want to keep you uninformed. What you DO NOT KNOW helps them to manipulate your opinions and to influence your political views. What a disaster that is.
If you find your ignorance of the issues acceptable, go for it. If you find it abhorrent and totally opposed to the democratic concept of an informed electorate, forgive the discourteous nature of our reprimand and please, just shut up and listen.
First, understand that there is hope for you. But also understand that it’s too late for courtesy or good manners. This nation is rapidly approaching a dangerous brink which may take us all into an abyss from which we will not recover. So, please take us very seriously. The solution lies in your willingness to just shut up and listen.
Shut up about things you know nothing about and get informed. .../...

Here's a reasonably thorough briefing on the middle east from a fellow who was until recently one of the top analysts in the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research. In addition to a being a balanced assessment of the subject it's a rare window into how INR typically tots up its accounts. Wayne White is a very smart guy who isn't shy about his ethics—I found this conversation particularly invigorating and I hope Wayne returns periodically to talk with EP. Total runtime of an hour and thirteen minutes. Enjoy!

In at least one fundamental respect JFK's speech on the press has become archaic: He didn't have in mind anything like today's corporate Frankenstein of a minuscule number of owners in control of the vast majority of mainstream media outlets. A Ministry of Propaganda, these days, would only get in the way of eager flacks leaping to do government's bidding. Exceptions, nevertheless, exist. On the inside, as chief middle east correspondent for ABC news for ten years, Charlie Glass was one of them; on the outside, as an independent writer and filmmaker he remains exceptional. In many ways he's very old-school, a type for whom the words discernment, class, taste, and decency were invented, but in certain critical respects he's ultra-modern, because he maintains an impartial sense of empathy, an ability to feel moral outrage on behalf of the dispossessed. Though we talk explicitly about the press in only a fraction of this conversation it's an implicit theme throughout: The collision of reality—Israel's riparian offensive—with our carefully structured 'official' narratives. Charlie manages, somehow, to get at the nub of things better than most. I am very pleased to bring you this conversation and I thank Charlie from the bottom of my heart. Total runtime of fifty minutes. Enjoy!

Here's a speech that JFK gave to the American Newspaper Publishers Association, at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York, April 27, 1961. It's particularly interesting in comparison with his 1963 American University Commencement speech, because while JFK, in 1961, was still in the thrall of a Cold War mentality he shows abundant signs of breaking free: He hasn't quite gotten to the full-fledged radical idealism he ultimately found but you can see the wheels turning as he speaks. Though this speech starts out almost as though he'd taken a leaf from the "war on terror" playbook, which is very scary hearing it, as he works through his priorities he winds up at a completely different—indeed, opposite—conclusion than our robo-politicians find nowadays. Kennedy clearly operated at a much higher intellectual level, and even though he's passed away his words may remind us of how far we're being drawn backwards into pre-modern politics. Runtime of about nineteen minutes. Enjoy!
Please go read this extensive post by LJer dogemperor with numerous media sources citing how FEMA is refusing help from reputable organizations, turning away people with boats and buses, telling the Red Cross to stay out of NOLA because if they feed and water people they won’t leave, and on and on and on. Not to mention Shrub setting up fake feeding stations which were torn down after the media circus moved on. (Potemkin village, anyone?)
People, this isn’t just disorganization. This is murder. Of our fellow Americans, by our government. When you’re done shouting expletives at the monitor, write your Congressmen and Senators. Send them these links. Demand the impeachment and criminal investigation of these officials who are playing cards and going shoe-shopping while people we care for are dying. People they swore to serve and protect. People who paid their fucking salaries with their hard-earned taxes.
Pretty much all of this community is essential reading. Go. Get enraged. Get involved. Get BushCo impeached and tried.
How do you shareholders feel about Disney’s new business model: Have a subsidiary (ABC) make a movie (Path to 9/11) at considerable expense ($40MM) that will be shown commercial-free, thereby generating zero revenue (and costing the company the $40MM outlay) while simultaneously alienating (albeit temporarily) about half the population? Sound viable?

… There is a window of time now for Mr. Iger to step up, an ‘apologize for Tylenol tampering’ moment. He needs to cancel this miniseries, and take personal responsibility for inadequate oversight. He should privately fire the people responsible for this total disaster of a project, and apologize. That’s the only way to restore Disney’s brand among a large group of very angry people. Be brave, be public, and be honorable. It’ll work.
And what will happen if he doesn’t? Well, it’s not just boycotts. Those are probably going to happen, but that’s not what Iger has to worry about, or his corporate brethren. You see, Disney has a number of political objectives, as is obvious from the donor patterns of their corporate executives and their lobbying behavior.
One of them is the egregiously awful broadcast flag. Disney is leading the effort to give Hollywood control over how your TV and TiVo are built and what you can do with programs you watch…
Another is copyright extensions, which Disney has used to keep its perpetual license on characters like Mickey Mouse, who should by now have fallen into the public domain…
And [the other] thing Disney wants is media consolidation. Disney wants to buy everything, since media is seen as a scale business. It’s pretty obvious to Democrats if this movie airs that Disney is not a responsible public steward of the airwaves it controls right now. Why should they be allowed to engulf even more assets? Like Creative Commons, the free media movement is growing rapidly, and it is a real movement that could receive a dollop of political power thanks to Disney’s exceptionally and impressively poor judgment…

This is what public outrage looks like. These are the first 120,000 petitions collected against Disney/ABC at Democrats.org, and more are coming. Understand that — one hundred twenty thousand petitions collected so far asking Disney to pull the plug on their now widely criticized, lie-riddled $40 million piece of 9/11 conservative fan fiction.
It’s time for Disney to pull the plug. It’s time for George Mitchell, who serves as Disney’s Chairman, to insist that they pull the work for retooling or burning — or that he will resign in protest. It’s time for ABC head Bob Iger to step up to the plate and recognize that putting up 9/11 neoconservative porn is not simply a one-week outrage: 9/11 is still a fresh wound, in our country, Disney/ABC fictionalizing it for profit and partisanship is not OK, and the public will remember this.=============
In a statement released late this afternoon, education publishing giant Scholastic announced it is permanently withdrawing the materials it originally created for classroom use in conjunction with “The Path to 9/11.” Materials that Media Matters for America first noted, was “rife with conservative misinformation.”
According to Scholastic Chairman, President and CEO Dick Robinson, the materials “did not meet our high standards for dealing with controversial issues.” New materials will be posted tomorrow. Additionally, the new materials will make clear Scholastic had no involvement in the development of “The Path to 9/11″ and that the company is not promoting the primetime mini-series.-------------

At least 10 Florida journalists received regular payments from a U.S. government program aimed at undermining the Cuban government of Fidel Castro, The Miami Herald reported on Friday.
Total payments since 2001 ranged from $1,550 to $174,753 per journalist, according to the newspaper, which said it found no instance in which those involved had disclosed that they were being paid by the U.S. Office of Cuba Broadcasting.
That office runs Radio and TV Marti, U.S. government programs broadcast to Cuba to promote democracy and freedom on the communist island. Its programming cannot be broadcast within the United States because of anti-propaganda laws.
The Cuban government has long contended that some Spanish-language journalists in Miami were on the U.S. government payroll…

about ABC 911 perfidy... Why do you stupid Americans put up with this shit? Go to ABC headquarters, trash the place. Go to your local mall, the disney store, trash the place. You know a local abc affiliate, go trash the place. OK, you may be arrested and jailed... ain't that the price of freedom? you're close to Anaheim or in FLA... trash the place. Throw rocks on anyone entering the parks. What's wrong with you Americans, always lecturing others about freedom, have you yourselves got what it takes to defend it? When are you gonna realize your vote and all that crap are outdated "quaint" concepts. Don't you see everything accelerating? Are you so oblivious to history that your don't know what the next step in the nazi playbook is? peaceful protests and boycotts won't do squat. You need to steamroll and kill. But do you have it in you to stand for Liberty? There is no other way. Anything else is utopia and wishful thinking or, as some would say "appeasement".

I can see 19 guys sitting around the mosque , when one says, "Those damned Americans have too much freedom, lets get some planes and crash them into their biggest buildings , and , oh yes the Pentagon and kill ourselves" By Allah , that will teach them they can't be going around being free like that. I just hate their freedom. The Pentagon , however, has an automatic missile defense system. Someone had to shut it down for the attack to take place. That limits the possible suspects a bit. The three WTC building were brought down by controlled demolition. That limits it a bit more. ( You may ask, whom am I going to believe, the government or my own eyes ? I believe my own eyes. The Emperor is naked ) It doesn't take more than a highschool physics class to know about free fall speed, and how there cannot be a free fall if there is resistance. Those hundred plus floors must have presented quite a bit of resistance. Doesn't one have to question the idea that the President did not want to have an investigation of the biggest terrrorist act to take place on American soil? That is peculiar , to say the least. There is so much , much more, but that is enough for me to know , that someone, somewhere in our government had a hand in the WTC attack. If not THE hand. Oh yes , and for those who say it was too big to keep quiet. Check out how our government handeled the Atomic bombs in Japan. Reporters were not allowed in. Two sneaked in ( one American and one Australian) and wrote about a mysterious illness (radiation sickness)that they saw everywhere , and our government confiscated the American reporters story, denied that there was any sickness and hired a reporter named Lawrence on the New York Times to tell their version of the story and refute the idea of any illness caused by Atomic bombs. Then for years any Japanese who survived the bomb was jailed if he spoke about it. It is all out in the open now. 60 years later. Are we going to wait 60 years for the truth about 9/11?==========

I'm afraid I may have helped provide some of the props for the shlockudrama being shown on ABC. I was contacted in June last year by a Disney subsidiary, UHP Productions in Canada doing a project on Bin Laden/ Al Qaeda. I sold them some old Afghan prayer rugs, tea sets, and Yemeni daggers. I sell Middle Eastern and Central Asian antiques and imports online which is how they found me. I Just thought you might like to see Producer Cyrus Nowrasteh’s favorite blow up fantasy.

American Broadcast Company? Right. The American Broadcast Company is owned by Disney. Disney is owned by the King of Arabia. The King of Arabia is Bush's BEST FRIEND. When he was a KID he was named PRINCE BANDAHR... Since his father died, he is now KING. The King of Arabia worked in concert with his childhood buddy, George Bush, to evacuate all Saudis from the USA after Sept 11, 2001, and has already proven that he will gladly help the Bush Family cover up the 911 attack details..... This film is further proof.... covering up the 911 attack details, muddying the water and putting forth an ANTI-Democratic SPIN on this story, BLAMING IT ON CLINTON INSTEAD OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR SCREWING UP!!!! They are timing this film to sway voters into their camp of loosers and incompetants. We have laws against purveying propaganda, as mentioned in Buzzflash's story today on the paying of "journalists" in Florida to plant anti Castro stories... and getting paid by the U.S. Government. This film is blatant propaganda and someone needs to file a complaint with BUSH's Dept of Justice... you remember his OTHER best friend... Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales... who was Bush's personal attorney in the White House, helping to orchestrate the (il)legalities of this entire mess. You can file a complaint with him. Of course, when it all goes to the Supreme Court for a final decision, Bush has THAT packed too, with his OTHER FRIEND, Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts... who "owes him one"..... and will always rule to the benefit of his "friend" George. You can complain to him. Our nation of laws has been ripped asunder by the Bush Crime Family and as long as we allow this mafia to run our country, we will continue to slide toward the abyss. I figure America has about 3 more years left in her life cycle.... which is the average for other democracies in history. Go ahead and stick you head in the sand and enjoy another phony fairy tale written and distributed by Disney and designed to divert you from the real world. Designed to keep your critical thinking skills asleep. After all it is so much more fun to be on a winning team, booing the other team, than it is to GET REAL. While Republicans relish in booing Democrats and continue to treat elections as a Bloodsport that they are winning; our country is being destroyed from beneath their feet. So much for the party of RESPONSIBILITY. I have yet to see these loosers take responsibility for anything ever. By the way, has anyone got an update on how the Halliburton Construction Company is doing on the construction of those prison camps in the heartland? You know, the ones with the sanitary vacuum seal body bag machines?
