9.11 investigation

Want a "Global Security State?

Legislation to push the creation of a "Global Security State" is barreling right along- with help from all the scared Powers that Be. Time to alert, mobilize Resistance, before the Architecture of Repression is formalized.
Want a Global Security State?
Built for the same team that orchestrated 9-11 in their scheme for World Dominance?
H.R. 4104, the Intelligence Transformation Act is being rushed through Congress with the help of Bush, Kerry, The "9-11 Cover-Up Commission"... if you liked the SS, the KGB, the CIA, the PATRIOT Act, Homeland Security; you'll LOVE it!

If not, Join us! Say-

No to The Police State!

No to War! No to Lies!

No State Sponsored Terrorism!

Stop the 9-11 Cover-Up!

Yes to Truth, Peace, Justice,

Repeal the PATRIOT Act!

Compassionate Impeachment!

Kerry inadvertantly revealed the truth in his Freudian slip calling for more resources for a "Terrorism Task Force," uhm, Counter-Terrorism Task Force. As Bush, Kerry, Select 9-11 Victims' Families applaud the official 9-11 Whitewash Report and mount a national campaign to sell legislation that would institutionalize the Terror State that uses special operations, war, the press, to terrify people, crush democracy, dissent at home and abroad. Why the rush? Red Alert! Opposition to the Powers that Be, Enduring Wars, Ending Liberties is mounting.

Serious analysis of the official 9-11 Report reveals it to be worse than the Warren Report, a fabrication to uphold the "official lie" and cloud the blatant lies, destruction of evidence, clear beneficiaries of the crime that took place on September 11, 2001. The mandate of the official Commission has always been to justify the construction of "Homeland Security"- A Police State Apparatus- designed to crush dissent rather than catch terrorists. Indeed, most terrorism is funded, assisted, and implemented via the alphabet soup of "Intelligence Agencies" that already exist, with the assistance of the U.S. military, and its "allies" who serve the same corporate interests, and rely upon a "war economy."

With the failure of Congress to investigate 9-11, to prevent unjustified wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, to protect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights from the ravages of the PATRIOT Act and Homeland Security, citizens have been compelled to take to the streets, organize, educate themselves and others to halt an imperial power grab that threatens the vast majority of people in the U.S. and the world.

We, Americans, have a special responsibility to rein in our government, to expose their blatant lies, criminal activities, and attacks upon the most fundamental values that are threatened by allowing the "Terrorists Controlling the White House"- to issue bogus "Terrorist Alerts,"to relabel any domestic opposition to their policies as "domestic terrorists," to funnel resources into technologies which enrich and enable the few to control and impoverish the many through violence and fear.

In the Bay Area, we have marched on our Senators and on my Congresswoman Anna Eshoo to- "Demand an Investigation of 9-11," to "Expose the 9-11 Cover-Up," "Demand Pre-Emptive Impeachment of Bush & Co.," to "Demand a Repeal of the PATRIOT Act," "Demand the Impeachment of Bush ... " Neither Senator Feinstein, Senator Boxer, nor Congresswoman Eshoo have addressed our concerns nor our demands satisfactorily.

It is time to march again.

Congresswoman Anna Eshoo just sent me this letter-

Dear Constituent,
On July 22nd the 9-11 Commission issued its report to the Congress and the country. As a Member of the House Intelligence Committee, I want to give you an update on my work to protect our national security.
The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission) issued a comprehensive set of bipartisan recommendations to Congress to address the shortcomings in our nation's intelligence infrastructure that led to the tragic attacks of 9-11. The report comes amid new warnings about possible terrorist activity within the U.S., making it clear that terrorists will not wait for Congress to act.

Because of the urgency of these issues I've urged congressional leaders to immediately reconvene both Houses of Congress to consider the Commission's recommendations and implement the necessary reforms as soon as possible. House Minority Leader Pelosi has already called House Democrats to return to Washington on August 10th to discuss the Commission's work directly with members of the Commission.
I will be traveling to Washington every week during August to participate in hearings by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence about proposed reforms to the intelligence community. I've been calling for the Committee to initiate these hearings for months.

Last April, together with my Democratic colleagues on the House Intelligence Committee, I introduced legislation to overhaul the intelligence community to improve how our intelligence is collected, analyzed, and disseminated. This legislation, H.R. 4104, the Intelligence Transformation Act, is nearly identical to the reforms proposed by the 9-11 Commission, including:

the creation of a Director of National Intelligence to oversee and manage the entire intelligence community, with enhanced authority over the intelligence budget and intelligence personnel;

the creation of joint intelligence centers staffed by operatives and analysts from across the intelligence agencies; and

comprehensive reforms to address information sharing - moving the intelligence community from a need to know culture to a need to share culture.

These interlocking reforms cannot be implemented in a piecemeal fashion and reforms should not be cherry-picked. It's also important to reform Congress and its committee structure to ensure the viability of these recommendations.

These are not partisan issues. Assessing blame for past failures will not help us protect our future. However, refusing to recognize these failures and not take the critical steps to ensure that they don't ever occur again is not acceptable.

The American people owe a great deal to the work of the 9-11 Commission, as well as the inspiration of the families of 9-11 victims. Now is the time for Congress to act in a timely and prudent way. Rest assured, I will do my utmost to make the critical changes to protect our national security.
If you have questions or comments, let me hear from you.

Sincerely,

Anna G. Eshoo
Member of Congress

I was outraged by this letter and immediately called Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office and spoke for half an hour with her staff.

I just spoke to a friend of mine who is running against Eshoo this November (as a write-in candidate), and I think he'll make this a major campaign issue!!! I suggest others raise this issue, as well- and vote out anyone who "wants the PATRIOT Act, Homeland Security, War, and a bigger Police State."

At the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9-11, Phase One and the Toronto International Citizen's Inquiry into 9-11, Phase Two held in March and May of this year ( http://www.911inquiry.org ), ordinary people seeking the truth about 9-11 found ample evidence of a major cover-up on the part of the government, and the official Commission. In summary, there was plenty of evidence of government complicity, our major obstacles to informing the public were the Mainstream Press which continues to censor the most basic facts about 9-11, and the psychological barriers of fear and denial erected by people who do not wish to believe that their own government could be capable of such a crime. Nevertheless, we cannot prevent future 9-11s by rewarding those most responsible the events of September 11th which is precisely what the new legislation would do, simultaneously masking the truth about 9-11 for as long as possible.

Napoleon once said, "It is not necessary to suppress the truth, simply delaying it, will do." (roughly paraphrasing)

If we wait until all the players are dead, and information/the truth is irrelevant, then we allow The Big Lie and criminals to rule the planet and Injustice to reign.

It is time for 9-11 Truth Movement, the Peace Movement, the Global Justice Movement, the Anti-Corporate Globalization Movement to challenge the Big Lie which is being used to justify the tremendous assaults upon so many for the benefit of the few which benefit from Fear, War and Terror. We cannot allow them to get away with the construction of a Fourth Reich which would make Hitler drool with envy. No to a "Global Security State." No to H.R. 4104. True security does not mean a monopoly on weapons, surveillance, a stranglehold on the global economy; true security means healthy relationships between all people, respect for life, peace born out of love and cooperation.

Wednesday, August 25th, 2004 there will be a rally in downtown Palo Alto at Listening for a Change between 11:00 a.m and 1:00 p.m. at Lytton Plaza, intersection of University and Emerson. 1:00 p.m. March to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office to show our opposition to the 9-11 Cover-Up and H.R. 4104's Police State Proposal.

Saturday, September 11th, 2004, in solidarity with people throughout the world, as part of a Global Day of Action in support of the 9-11 Truth and Peace Movements, there will be the 6th Annual Power to the Peaceful Concert in Golden Gate Park, featuring Michael Franti & Spearhead. The 9-11 Truth Alliance will hold our annual rally and march, "against Lies, War, the Police State, & State Sponsored Terrorism, against the PATRIOT Act, for 9-11 Truth, Peace & Justice, Compassionate Impeachment" at the Panhandle at 10:00 AM, march down Haight Street and through Golden Gate Park to arrive when the concert and social justice activities begins at 11:00 AM and lasts until 5:00 PM; the activities/concert are free to all.

If you can't come, join us in solidarity actions, wherever you may be, and be sure to post them on the  http://www.911truth.org calendar, so that everyone can see- we are a growing movement, a growing political force, and the hope of the future. Power to the Peaceful!

"We, Americans, have a special responsibility to rein in our government"

Nothing special about that. All people are responsible to teach their governments to obey.

It is Americans' narcissistic attitude of specialness which motivated us to give -- yes, to give, we can no longer hide behind ingenuous passive verbs -- to give our government, to give control of enormous wealth and murderous military power to some of the very few people who are more special and narcissistic than ourselves.

Napoleon had to delay the truth. Americans, like your friend striking a great blow for freedom contending manfully with Congressperson Eshoo for write-in ballots, like yourself stuggling in solidarity with a free rock-concert, don't have to delay truth. We just pretend we can't see it poking us in the eye.

Right-on, sista!

9/11 was not organised in any way by the US government... 07.Aug.2004 06:47

King Amdo

This thesis is gookery. (and thus acceptable to the 'power')

Please read this excellent book for the sus on the Taliban...

Taliban: The Story of Afghan Warlords by Ahmed Rashid

They were supplying this Afghan Islamic fundimentalist movement, (in the initial anti communist days) but not when it turned against the west. It could be said that the west has caused this reaction (9/11 etc) by maliciously infiltrating and polluting tribal areas. (colonialism). I personnally judged it (9/11) to be a unsurpassed visual spectacular. The west should be humble and take it's worthless and empty ethos out of tribal areas...destroying places as near to heaven or nivarna as yah goanna get on planet earth...tribal forests of walnuts and apricots...tribal (communal) meadows and grazings....essentially self sufficent communities...and thus against the ethic of western anti tribal, profit and exploitation motive.

What I would like to see is the evidence, the paperwork revealing the american, western and Saudi involvment in the Taliban etc. This would be very embarrassing for the western powers. Pakistan could have done this, but instead choose to stay enclosed by the powers 'game', and to lie and to seek scapegoats and to obey the western order. World leaders don't like to be caught out lying. The potential for embarrasment is there because this movement which they once finaced has now turned into an enemy...the 'axis of evil' that is being presented as america's no1 enemy. So obviously if it could be proved that this movement was previously financed by america....they would look stupid and full of shit in public. Everyone would know.

Essentially Al Qa'ida etc are 'deep green' they like traditional culture, tribal culture and don't like western ethic.

Allah Akbar,

King Amdo.
