********911: NEWS MEDIA HOAX********</ul>


(Warning: No reference to the 911 Hoax will survive editorial control over NYC Indymedia; ie.,  http://www.NYC.Indymedia.org )


"We Went to War over Cartoons (the Webfairy)"


"What do you think would happen if the world became aware that there were no hijacked planes that day, that two of the flights didn't exist, that the towers were attacked with secret technology, that the horrifying image which people saw on TV was just a movie</b>, and that media also faked lists of passengers on the non existent flight which didn't hit the North tower, that a missile of some sort was fired into the pentagon and that fake videos and fake eyewitness reports were concocted to try to sell the story? (Gerard Holmgren)"


What really hit the South Tower of the WTC?

UK director to make 9/11 hijack film:

(will the "planes" that strike the WTC look more real in this movie than in the movies we saw on 9/11/01?)

NYPD continues to arrest Critical Mass riders:

"...They spotlight the increasing suppression of some of the most harmless and routine activities for fear that they could become rallying points for the seething hostility that exists to social inequality and government policy..."

Xymphora - The New Orleans Hostage Crisis:
 http://www.rense.com/general67/nohost.htm

"...Shortly before midnight, the Bush Administration essentially delivered an ultimatum to Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco: before they released the emergency supplies, they wanted her to sign the city of New Orleans over to the Federal government..."




*NEW ORLEANS: SEAWALLS*</b>

(both streams from the Webfairy):

Notice it was three CANALS.
Notice it was ZERO real levees, all CANALS, the LEAST LIKELY water controlling system to breach spontaneously, preposterously long after the storm surge.
THIS WAS SABOTAGE.


The 9th ward is build on what used to be a swamp.
Imagine New Orleans like a shallow cereal bowl. The 9th ward would be at the center.
There would be no reason to breach the the canal.
The city had already survived intact.
The areas attacked were not "levees."
They were seawalls lining canals. Seawalls have two or three foot thick concrete with steel face.
They just don't get tired and collapse, any more than the 911 buildings did.
The storm surge that could have hurt the levee system had passed without problem hours earlier.
THIS WAS SABOTAGE.
They are playing the race/class card cos they want to create race/class hate, as an excuse to pretend an intentional breech was remediation for "the greater good."




*FEMA*</b>

Very painful questions about New Orleans:
 http://www.rense.com/general67/painful.htm

"There's something very wrong with the chronology of the levee breaks in New Orleans..."


The great New Orleans land grab/
The 17th street canal levy was breeched on purpose:
 http://www.aztlan.net/new_orleans_land_grab.htm

"...In an interview by WWL TV, Mayor Nagin complained vociferously that Louisiana National Guard Blackhawk helicopters were being stopped from dropping sandbags to plug the levy soon after it breeched. There is evidence that no repairs were allowed on the levy until after New Orleans was totally flooded!..."


Eyewitness states 17th street levee was bombed by the Army Corps of Engineers:

*HURRICANE KATRINA: FOX TV*</b>

Fox TV airs program called "Oil Storm" which depicts, in documentary-style, the catastrophic destruction of New Orleans via runaway hurricane. In the film gas prices rise sharply and an economic upheaval takes place.
 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461695/
 http://www.walltowall.co.uk/projects/project.asp?ProjectID=254
 http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/oilstorm/main.html

"...The premises of the television-movie were as follows:

1. A super hurricane strikes New Orleans and the Gulf oil installations.
2. Disorder erupts and martial law is declared. The area is evacuated.
3. Oil supply is disrupted catastrophically and prices rise astronomically
4. Economic chaos and depression result

How prescient &#8211; indeed clairvoyant &#8211; this major television event turned out to be.
And so close to the actual events themselves...(Lynn)"

(Fed plays Hewitt in the semi-finals. At the last USO, Fed beat Hewitt 6-0, 7-6, 6-0 in the final. This is a ridiculous score. the world's #2 player (at that time) could not possibly be double-bageled in a match with any other human being.)
