By CAROLE BROUILLET Philip Zelikow will speak at Kresge Auditorium, today, from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. We plan to protest the Sept. 11 cover-up and to raise questions about his role as executive director of the 9-11 Commission and the Commission's report.
Zelikow, a national security adviser to both Bush administrations and a principal author of the official 9-11 Commission Report, was part of Bush's transition team for the National Security Council after the 2000 election. He was appointed to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board a month after the Sept. 11 2001 attacks.
The Family Steering Committee called for his resignation because of his obvious conflicts of interests.
While Sept. 11 has been used to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, shred the Constitution and Bill of Rights, construct a global police state, enrich weapons manufacturers and seize oil assets, there have been no convictions in any courts of law supporting the government conspiracy theory, particularly the Saddam Hussein / Al Qaeda link.
The 9-11 Commission failed to mention or address the multiple war games / exercises that were being conducted that day, out of the White House. As many as five war game drills were in process, some involving hijacked airliners, a plane crashing into a building, some involving false blips deliberately inserted onto FAA and military radar screens.
One exercise pulled significant fighter resources away from the Northeastern United States on Sept. 11.
These exercises involved North American Air Defense Command, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Canadian Air Force, the CIA and the National Reconnaissance Office.
Coincidentally, in New York City, massive preparations were underway for a biochemical attack drill involving FEMA, the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management, the FBI, the U.S. Department of Justice, Weill Medical College, the N.Y. Deptartment of Health, the N.Y. Fire Department, the N.Y. Police Department, the American Red Cross and the Port Authority.
The Secret Service and Cheney's overseeing role during the events of Sept. 11 were overlooked. This was documented in Michael Ruppert's new book "Crossing the Rubicon - The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil."
The Commissioners and Zelikow had deep conflicts of interest and many reasons to cover up the truth about Sept. 11.
They are now engaged in a public relations effort to sell the official narrative and the war on terrorism. Both the official inquiry and the Commission's parameters were to support the official story and justify the creation of Homeland Security Department.
Homeland Security in German is "geheimstadt politza," which during World War II was abbreviated to Gestapo. Do Americans really believe a "Gestapo" will make us safer?
The Stanford Institute for International Studies is sponsoring Zelikow's talk, but the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a 15-month $1.65-million contract to CISAC and the Stanford Institute for International Studies to conduct research on how national and local agencies improve the design and evaluation of future terrorist exercises of national and local response systems.
The DHS research contract resulted from CISAC's observation of last year's spring State Department-DHS-sponsored, full-scale exercise called TOPOFF2, designed to prepare national, state and local officials to respond to potential terrorist attacks within the United States.
The United States has a long history of training terrorists and launching covert operations throughout the world.
Terrorism allows states to declare emergencies, label all opposition as terrorists and reduce civil rights.
Carol Brouillet is an organizer for the International Inquiry into 9-11, a group that is responsible for exposing information about Sept. 11.
