The following article says a Los Angeles Grand jury find the official version of 911 FALSE.
"Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury Preliminary Findings
October 31, 2004
Given the failure of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security (May 2002), the House-Senate Joint Intelligence Community Investigation (December 2002), and the United Kingdom Government dossier (October2001), the Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the Kean-Hamilton 9/11 Commission Report (July 2004), to establish the truth and create accountability about the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury convened on October 23, 2004 in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, USA and hereby returns the following findings on October 31, 2004:
I. That the official account of the events of September 11, 2001 is physically impossible, untenable, contradictory, fraudulent, and ignores vast bodies of relevant and pertinent evidence. It must, therefore, be rejectedas a propaganda fabrication designed to favor the unleashing of aggressive war, while hiding the activity of a treasonous cabal of high-level elected and appointed civilian U.S. government and military officials, and private and/or contracted third parties and rogue agents under their known or unknown direction yet to be determined who both actively prepared, promoted, organized, assisted, fomented, and/or passively favored the September 11 attacks and supported the cover-up that followed.
II. Concerning the official story elaborated by the 9/11 Keane Commission Report of July 2004, the UK Government dossier of October 2001, and statements by US and UK government officials and echoed by the mainstream media, we find:
A. That given significant evidence exists that as many as eight of the names of the alleged hijackers identified by the FBI shortly after the attacks, are the names of individuals who have publicly claimed to still be alive after 9/11, and the Government has not proven that ANY of the 19 names of the alleged hijackers were on any of the flight manifests of any of the four planes, and no physical evidence of any of their bodies' remains have been reported found at any of the attack sites, evidence linking the specific identities to the incidents appears - at best - planted to assure association but implausible; the government's assertion that the alleged 19 hijackers operated without being detected by official surveillance is untenable, and evidence is strong that the alleged hijackers - whatever their identities and whatever their involvement - acted in coordination with a faction within the government itself. The alleged hijackers were, therefore, in all probability, expendable double agents and/or patsies.
B. The government's assertion that the four supposedly hijacked airliners were taken over and piloted by the four accused hijackers is highly implausible. The planes were in all probability guided to their targets by some form of remote access or remote control.
C. The government's assertion that the failures of air defense were caused by the fog of war is absurd. Air defense on 9/11/2001 was in all probability intentionally sabotaged by an Inside Cabal of treasonous high-level civilian government and military officials who intended the actual hijack alerts to be initially confused with at least five emergency response exercises going on that morning.
D. The government's assertion that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed as a result of the impact of aircraft and of the subsequent fire is physically impossible. The fall of the Towers cannot be explained without the hypothesis of a controlled demolition by some form of explosion.
E. The government's assertion that World Trade Center 7 collapsed at 5:20 PM EDT on September 11 purely as a result of fire is physically impossible, ignores the taped admission of Leaser Larry Silverstein that he and the fire department agreed to "pull it" and given it collapsed into its footprint in the manner of a controlled demolition that takes weeks to prepare further suggests an "inside job".
F. The government's assertion that United Flight 93 crashed because of actions by the hijackers or because of a struggle in the cockpit is implausible. All evidence points to the hypothesis that it was shot down by a US military aircraft and/or by the detonation of an onboard bomb.
G. The government's inordinate delay in the establishment of a Commission to investigate the events of 9/11, their subsequent omission of significant evidence and refusal to address accountability; its refusal to investigate insider trading of American Airlines and United Airlines put options; the wholesale seizure and destruction of evidence, the systematic intimidation of witnesses by the FBI, and a series of other incidents point unmistakably to an attempted cover-up on the part of certain factions of the US government and establishment.
H. The dossier issued by the Government of the United Kingdom and the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report should be seen as cover-ups and, therefore, as accessories-after-the-fact.
I. Given that certain individuals and institutions did significantly profit from the events of 9/11 and the ensuing "endless war on terror" that followed, and individuals who failed to do their appointed jobs, demonstrated significant incompetence and/or obstructed justice were not held accountable after gross failures; does hereby reflect motives for the crimes of 9/11, and they should be criminally investigated, held accountable for civil liability and politically condemned.
III. We the People, acting through the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury, hereby demand the following seven key pieces of evidence:
A. The FBI, National Reconnaissance Office and all other agencies of the US federal government immediately release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations, the videotapes and satellite imagery shot between 9 AM and 12 Noon Eastern Daylight Time on September 11, 2001 by all surveillance cameras within two miles of the Pentagon and by any and all surveillance satellites bearing on the same area, including but not limited to the videotapes shot by cameras at all gas stations and the Sheraton Washington Hotel. These tapes were seized by the FBI on or shortly after 9/11, and only 5 frames of one tape have been made available to the public.
B. The Report on Responsibility for 9/11 issued by the Inspector General of the Central Intelligence Agency and currently suppressed by CIA Director Porter Goss at the behest of the Administration be immediately released in full to the public, with no redactions, omissions, alterations, or deletions.
C. Any and all documents generated by and in relation to the entity variously referred to as The Office of National Preparedness (ONP) and/or The Office of National Preparedness "Counter-Terrorism Task Force" created by George W. Bush by Presidential Order on May 8, 2001, and overseen by Vice President Richard Cheney, be immediately released and published in full, including the full text and any secret protocols of that Presidential Order with no redactions, omissions, deletions, or alterations. The Citizens' Grand Jury demands the results of a complete and thorough search of the files of all 46 federal agencies, including but not limited to the Office of National Preparedness, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the CIA, NORAD, the NRO, and the Department of Defense, whose Counter-Terrorism Preparedness and Consequence Management Activities Pertaining to Domestic (on U.S. territory) Terror Attacks, which, according to press reports, were made subject to oversight and coordination by Vice President Cheney under the auspices of the above named Presidential Order; that all of these agencies and any other(s) also overseen by Vice President Cheney under the May 8, 2001 Presidential Order release all logs, documents, and other records relevant to the said Cheney "Counter-Terrorism Task Force." This demand specifically also includes the full and un-redacted text of all drafts as well as any final report of the Cheney "Counter-Terrorism Task Force" which, according to press accounts, was scheduled to be completed and delivered on or about October 1, 2001.
D. All US federal government agencies release any and all documents, records, logs, and all otherinformation regarding any and all war games, drills, emergency response exercises, maneuvers and related activities either held on and/or planned in advance for September 11, 2001 and the week before and after that date, be they headquarters, staff, computer and/or other simulation, field training, or live-fly exercises, pertaining to any and all exercises taking place on or about September 11, 2001, or in the time immediately previous and/or subsequent to that date, including but not limited to:
1. Amalgam Virgo
2. Vigilant Guardian
3. Vigilant Warrior
4. Northern Vigilance
5. Northern Guardian
6. Tripod II, New York City
7. Drill at the National Reconnaissance Office, Chantilly VA
E. The Justice Department immediately release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations the 60-70 page monograph Supplement to the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report produced by the Commission's investigators, which has been withheld for two months by Attorney General Ashcroft's Justice Department, dealing with the "movements of the hijacked airliners and the response or lack of response of the government" and "revisits other subjects in the Commission's final report of July - telephone calls made from the hijacked airplanes, airline security and orders issued that morning by President Bush and VP Dick Cheney"... "also finds shortcomings in the Transportation Security Administration". First revealed in the New York Times Oct. 31, 2004, the Commission has drawn from this "unpublished part of the inquiry and quietly asked inspector generals at the Departments of Defense & Transportation to review what it had determined were broadly inaccurate accounts provided by several civil and military officials about efforts to track and chase the hijacked aircraft on September 11".
F. The Inspector Generals of the Departments of Defense and Transportation immediately release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations' their research and findings regarding the 60-70 page Supplement to the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report for, as David Barnes, spokesperson with the Dept of Transportation said, "if the reviews found wrongdoing, the Inspector General could recommend administrative penalties or ask federal prosecutors to begin a criminal investigation".
G. The FBI, FAA, NORAD and the Dept of Transportation release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations the contents of all black boxes retrieved from the four crash sites of September 11, 2001 and all records of ground-to-cockpit communications of the allegedly hijacked American Airlines flights #11 and #77 and United Airlines flights # 93 and #175.
IV. Henceforth, the tragedies of September 11, 2001 and the ensuing anthrax attacks be related to as crimes where motive, means and opportunity be considered and appropriate criminal, civil and political penalties be pursued commensurate with the preponderance of evidence of perjury, treason, mass murder, and high crimes against humanity, where appropriate.
V. An Independent International Truth Commission will be quickly convened and empanelled to refute the fabrications, falsifications, omissions, and distortions of the Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United Statesalso known as the Kean-Hamilton 9/11 Commission Report, and to establish the evidentiary basis for a truthful, objective, and accurate account of those events that inflicted death and injury to citizens of 83 countries on September 11, 2001 and have been used to justify an illegal war on a sovereign nation, Iraq, and on Afghanistan.
We, therefore, call upon statesmen, thinkers, journalists, investigators, artists, scientists, jurists, academics, humanitarians, religious leaders, activists and other eminent personalities from around the world to form an Independent International Truth Commission dedicated to truth, accountability, re-examination of lost liberties justified by the official story of 9/11 and further intending to prevent unproven assertions about 9-11 from moving the world ever closer to "endless war". This Independent International Truth Commission should be convened by the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11, the presenters to the Citizens' Grand Jury, and its conveners, 911TruthLA.us, in collaboration with concerned citizens around the world at various sites internationally, as yet to be determined.
VI. We the People, expressing as the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11, its Presenters and Conveners, do hereby agree to re-convene to review further sworn testimony and evidence to determine if sufficient evidence exists of probable cause to indict specific individuals of the crimes on and cover-up surrounding September 11, 2001 and to publish its findings; and do further hereby encourage Citizens' Grand Juries to be formed throughout the world to demand truth and accountability that will lead to re-claiming liberties and stopping the "endless war on terror" rationalized by the events of September 11, 2001.
The draft text of this indictment was presented and agreed to by the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on October 23, 2004; modified in the spirit of thoroughness and clarification from October 24-31, 2004 and approved by members of the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury, the Presenters and Conveners on or before October 31, 2004.

From Wayne Madsen Report:
" July 31, 2005 **** Plame leak damaged a major CIA investigation linking senior Bush administration officials to WMD proliferation. U.S. intelligence insiders have pointed out that the White House is using "Rovegate" and "Who in the White House said what to whom?" as a smoke screen to divert attention away from the actual counter-proliferation work Mrs. Wilson and her Brewster Jennings & Associates team were engaged in. The arrival of Timothy Flanigan as Patrick J. Fitzgerald's boss is likely related to the mountains of evidence Fitzgerald has now collected to indict senior White House officials, particularly, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for criminal conspiracy in exposing a sensitive U.S. intelligence operation that was targeting some of their closest political and business associates. Libby, it will be recalled, was the attorney for fugitive global smuggler and Clinton-pardoned multi-billionaire Marc Rich, someone who has close ties to the Sharon government and Israeli intelligence. It is no coincidence that FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds uncovered nuclear material and narcotics trafficking involving Turkish intermediaries with ties to Israel at the same time Brewster Jennings and the CIA's Counter Proliferation Division was hot on the trail of nuclear proliferators tied to the Israeli government of Ariel Sharon and the A. Q. Khan network of Pakistan.


Feith and Libby: Ultimate targets of CIA counter-proliferation team?

An arrest in early 2004 points to the links between Israeli agents and Islamist groups bent on producing weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons. According to intelligence sources, this was a network that was a major focus of Edmonds' and Valerie Plame Wilson's work. In January 2004, FBI and U.S. Customs agents arrested Asher Karni, a Hungarian-born Orthodox Jew, Israeli citizen, and resident of Cape Town, South Africa, at Denver International Airport for illegally exporting 200 electrically triggered spark gaps -- devices that send synchronized electrical pulses and are used in nuclear weapons -- to Pakistan via a New Jersey export company named Giza Technologies of Secaucus (owned by Zeki Bilmen -- whom the FBI has identified as a Turkish Jew who was already under surveillance by the CIA team). The cargo manifest listed the equipment as electronics gear [lithotripters used to break up kidney stones] for the Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa. However, the initial shipment of 66 triggers did not go to the hospital but to Karni's Top-Cape Technology of Cape Town, South Africa. Top Cape, in turn, sent the triggers to AJKMC Lithography Aid Society in Islamabad, Pakistan through Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Top-Cape "officially" traded in military and aviation electronics equipment. It was during the summer of 2003, when Valerie Plame and her team -- at a critical stage of their investigation of the A. Q. Khan network -- were outed by White House officials Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and at least one other individual (possibly Elliot Abrams), that Karni received an e-mail from his long time Pakistani associate Humayun Khan (no relation to A. Q. Khan) asking for 200 triggers to be sent to his Islamabad-based company, Pakland PME.

After initially attempting to purchase the devices from a sale agent in France -- an attempt that proved unsuccessful when the French agent demanded a U.S. export license for the triggers because the end destination was Pakistan -- Karni managed to obtain the triggers from Perkin-Elmer's manufacturing plant in Massachusetts through Giza Technologies. Karni's e-mail traffic to and from Khan was being intercepted by a covert agent in South Africa and being forwarded to U.S. authorities. It is not known whether the covert agent was a Brewster Jennings' asset but it would not be surprising considering Karni was an important link in the A. Q. Khan nuclear smuggling network. By the time the initital shipment of 66 triggers were sent to Karni's Cape Town office, U.S. and South African intelligence were already closely monitoring the transaction and the key players involved. It is also noteworthy that Karni previously worked for a Cape Town electronic import firm called Eagle Technology but was fired after it was discovered by his boss that he was making secret deals to ship nuclear components to Israel, India, Pakistan, and possibly, North Korea. Karni had been in South Africa for 20 years after arriving from Israel. His time in South Africa coincided with the apartheid government's rapid development of its own (since disestablished) nuclear weapons program and very close military ties between South Africa and Israel.



A.Q. Khan link to Israeli smuggler: Designed to speed up Iranian nuclear development to justify U.S./Israeli attack on Iran.

As for Humayun Khan, the Los Angeles Times discovered that the Pakistani "businessman" had been involved in nuclear weapons smuggling since 1975 when he was engaged in business with a former Nazi named Alfred Hempel, who was the kingpin in a global nuclear smuggling network active throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Hempel died in 1989. In an interview aired by PBS's Frontline on July 26, Humayun Khan said he never realized Karni was Jewish, stating that the Israeli masqueraded as a Muslim. However, what is clear is that an Israeli-based network, involving key neo-conservatives in the Bush adminstration, were attempting to speed up the clock on the delivery by the A. Q. Khan network of prohibited nuclear material to countries like Iran, thereby justifying a pre-emptive U.S. (and Israeli-supported) attack on Iranian nuclear installations. It was this network that attracted the attention of the CIA and when it realized some of the "men behind the curtain" were in the Pentagon, they had their smoking gun evidence of double dealing by Bush administration officials and their compatriots in the Sharon government.

Although AJKMC, the Pakistani company, said it merely printed copies of the Koran, U.S. investigators pointed out the initials also stand for the All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference, an Islamist opposition party that supports groups allied to Al Qaeda in Kashmir. Some anti-terrorism experts believe that Osama Bin laden may be hiding in Kashmir.

A Malaysian link was also discovered in Karni's network, which is significant in light of developments involving Brewster Jennings' exposure by Rove and Libby. A Swiss citizen named Urs Tinner was arrested by German authorities in October 2004. Tinner was accused of supervising the manfucture of centrifuge components in Malaysia. The United States demanded Tinner's release, which led to speculation that Tinner was a U.S. intelligence asset who penetrated the A.Q. Khan network and may have been part of the Brewster Jennings operation.

According to FBI insiders, wiretaps of phone calls in the Giza-Bilmen-Karni smuggling ring yielded the name Douglas Feith, the Undersecretary of Defense for Plans and Policy and one of Donald Rumsfeld's chief advisers, and Turkish MIT intelligence members of the American Turkish Council, a lobbying group which represents some of America's largest defense and private military contractors.

In May 2005, Der Spiegel magazine reported that Tinner was, in fact, a CIA agent. Germany announced that Tinner would be extradited to Switzerland, something that Der Spiegel reported was the result of a "deal" cut between Germany and the United States. A February 2004 Malaysian police report named both Urs Tinner and his father, Friedrich, as principal engineers in overseeing the machining of uranium-enrichment centrifuge components at a Scomi Precision Engineering (Scope) plant in Malaysia. Friedrich Tinner, owner of a Swiss firm named PhiTec AG, was named in an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report as one of many Swiss individuals involved in shipping nuclear components to Libya and Iran. Swiss authorities had previously cleared Friedrich Tinner of charges that he shipped centrifuges to Iraq. Friedrich Tinner's other son, Marco, owned a firm called Traco that was also reported as a supplier of equipment and services to Scomi.

If the Tinners were working for the CIA, one subject of interest for them was a Sri Lankan businessman named B.S.A. Tahir who arrived in Malaysia via Dubai in the mid-1990s. In a February 2004 speech at the National Defense University in Washington, DC, President Bush stated that Tahir was A. Q. Khan's "chief financial officer and money launderer." Investigators discovered that Tahir made several trips to Germany and Turkey, the native country of Karni's spark trigger supplier Bilmen, to meet with suppliers for the Khan network.



Israeli nuclear arms smuggler Asher Karni: His links to Bush administration and Israeli officials may have been the real reason Valerie Plame and Brewster Jennings & Associates operations were exposed.

A Federal Judge in Denver said Karni could be released on $75,000 bail but the government appealed the decision to Judge Thomas Hogan of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, DC. Hogan is the judge who ordered New York Times reporter Judith Miller to prison for her failure to testify before the Grand Jury. The federal prosecutors' appeal failed and Karni was released on bail into the custody of Rabbi Herzel Kranz. Karni was ordered to wear an electronic monitor and was ordered to remain at the Hebrew Sheltering Home in Maryland. "

I think this is saying the REAL REASON Plame was leaked was to stop the investigation of US and Israeli complicity in selling nuclear detonators to Iran, then using that fact they had them, would be another false reason to attak Iran! Like the false WMDs of Iraq.

The recent Central Asian news also points out that US Special operations are supporting Islamic extremists in order to overthrow regimes that do not wish to cooperate with US corporation oil dealings.See the Wayne Madsen report and your local newspapers, how Central Asian countries are banning U.S. forces from their cities.

Today Bolton was appointed U.N. Ambassador by Bush. His ideas on a separate independent Taiwon will aggravate China more. Cheney has warned of Iran's nuclear danger. (if you read Madsen above it's clear the US dealings are very provocative, planting parts) The media's demonization of Muslims is giving more aid to Zionist Israel. An attack on Iran may lead to WWIII, martial law, and a comong Holocaust here by FEMA. Those left of us will have to deal with another Inquisition brought to you by  http://hem.bredband.net/arenamontanus/mage_technocracy.html
Now known as FEMA.
