Pentagon Papers Whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg Says that the Government Has ORDERED the Media Not to Cover 9/11

 

It’s big news that the Pentagon Papers have finally been released by the government.

But the statements from Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg about 9/11 have not been covered by the corporate media.

As Fire Dog Lake’s Jeff Kaye writes today:

The entire 9/11 field of inquiry has been vilified, poisoned over the years by ridicule, sometimes fantastic conspiracy mongering, and fearfulness by journalists of approaching the material, lest they be branded as irresponsible or some kind of conspiracy freak. As a result, little work has been done to investigate, except by a small group of people, some of whom have raised some real questions …

Similarly, Air Force Colonel and key Pentagon official Karen Kwiatkowski – who blew the whistle on the Bush administration’s efforts to concoct false intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction – wrote (page 26):

I have been told by reporters that they will not report their own insights or contrary evaluations of the official 9/11 story, because to question the government story about 9/11 is to question the very foundations of our entire modern belief system regarding our government, our country, and our way of life. To be charged with questioning these foundations is far more serious than being labeled a disgruntled conspiracy nut or anti-government traitor, or even being sidelined or marginalized within an academic, government service, or literary career. To question the official 9/11 story is simply and fundamentally revolutionary. In this way, of course, questioning the official story is also simply and fundamentally American.

Several months after 9/11, famed news anchor Dan Rather told the BBC that American reporters were practicing “a form of self-censorship”:

There was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tires around peoples’ necks if they dissented. And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions…. And again, I am humbled to say, I do not except myself from this criticism.What we are talking about here – whether one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or not – is a form of self-censorship.

The head of CNN agreed:

There was ‘almost a patriotism police’ after 9/11 and when the network showed [things critical of the administration’s policies] it would get phone calls from advertisers and the administration and “big people in corporations were calling up and saying, ‘You’re being anti-American here.’

Keith Olbermann said:

You can rock the boat, but you can never say that the entire ocean is in trouble …. You cannot say: By the way, there’s something wrong with our …. system.

Former Washington Post – and now Huffington Post – columnist Dan Froomkin wrote in 2006:

Mainstream-media political journalism is in danger of becoming increasingly irrelevant, but not because of the Internet, or even Comedy Central. The threat comes from inside. It comes from journalists being afraid to do what journalists were put on this green earth to do. . . .

There’s the intense pressure to maintain access to insider sources, even as those sources become ridiculously unrevealing and oversensitive. There’s the fear of being labeled partisan if one’s bullshit-calling isn’t meted out in precisely equal increments along the political spectrum.

If mainstream-media political journalists don’t start calling bullshit more often, then we do risk losing our primacy — if not to the comedians then to the bloggers.

I still believe that no one is fundamentally more capable of first-rate bullshit-calling than a well-informed beat reporter – whatever their beat. We just need to get the editors, or the corporate culture, or the self-censorship – or whatever it is – out of the way.

The Pulitzer prize-winning reporter who uncovered the Iraq prison torture scandal and the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam, Seymour Hersh, said:

“All of the institutions we thought would protect us — particularly the press, but also the military, the bureaucracy, the Congress — they have failed. The courts . . . the jury’s not in yet on the courts. So all the things that we expect would normally carry us through didn’t. The biggeest failure, I would argue, is the press, because that’s the most glaring….Q: What can be done to fix the (media) situation?

[Long pause] You’d have to fire or execute ninety percent of the editors and executives. You’d actually have to start promoting people from the newsrooms to be editors who you didn’t think you could control. And they’re not going to do that.”

Veteran reporter Bill Moyers criticized the corporate media for parroting the obviously false link between 9/11 and Iraq (and the false claims that Iraq possessed WMDs) which the administration made in the run up to the Iraq war, and concluded that the false information was not challenged because:

“the [mainstream] media had been cheerleaders for the White House from the beginning and were simply continuing to rally the public behind the President — no questions asked.”

Of course, the corporate media is always pro-war. Since 9/11 provided a justification for the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere, the mainstream media doesn’t want to question the government’s version of events.

As Tom Brokaw notes:

All wars are based on propaganda.

What Does Ellsberg Say?

Ellsberg says that the government has ordered the media not to cover 9/11:

Ellsberg seemed hardly surprised that today’s American mainstream broadcast media has so far failed to take [former FBI translator and 9/11 whistleblower Sibel] Edmonds up on her offer, despite the blockbuster nature of her allegations [which Ellsberg calls “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers”].As Edmonds has also alluded, Ellsberg pointed to the New York Times, who “sat on the NSA spying story for over a year” when they “could have put it out before the 2004 election, which might have changed the outcome.”

There will be phone calls going out to the media saying ‘don’t even think of touching it, you will be prosecuted for violating national security,'” he told us.

* * *

“I am confident that there is conversation inside the Government as to ‘How do we deal with Sibel?'” contends Ellsberg. “The first line of defense is to ensure that she doesn’t get into the media. I think any outlet that thought of using her materials would go to to the government and they would be told ‘don’t touch this . . . .‘”

He supports a new 9/11 investigation.

He says that the case of a certain 9/11 whistleblower is “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers“. (Here’s some of what that whistleblower says.) He also said that the government is ordering the media to cover up her allegations about 9/11.

And he says that some of the claims concerning government involvement in 9/11 are credible, that “very serious questions have been raised about what they [U.S. government officials] knew beforehand and how much involvement there might have been”, that engineering 9/11 would not be humanly or psychologically beyond the scope of those in office, and that there’s enough evidence to justify a new, “hard-hitting” investigation into 9/11 with subpoenas and testimony taken under oath (see this and this).

Alternative Media Is Not Much Better

It is not just the corporate media.

I have had the owners of highly-regarded alternative media companies confide in me privately that they don’t believe the government’s version of 9/11, but that are scared of discussing it publicly because they don’t want to be tarred-and-feathered for discussing “conspiracy theories”.

Even writers like Glenn Greenwald – who are good on so many issues – won’t touch it.

Of course – as Ellsberg points out – “Secrets … can be kept reliably … for decades … even though they are known to thousands of insiders”. Indeed, the whole label “conspiracy theory” is just an attempt to diffuse criticism of the powerful.

People used to understand this. As the quintessential American writer Mark Twain said in a more rational age:

A conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public.

Of course, as thousands of top American military officers, counter-terrorism officials, intelligence officers, congressmen, structural engineers, and others have publicly said, the government’s story about 9/11 makes absolutely no sense. See this, this, this and this. And family members of people who died on 9/11 – and many New Yorkers – want a new investigation.

But you’ll never hear that in the corporate media.

    If we question 9/11 we are questioning the very foundation of our system. I agree with this statement. And I think it is why so many seemingly level-headed Americans will not discuss 9/11 conspiracy theories. It is a Pandora’s box of sorts; once you open it, you have to handle the truth, and the implications that follow.

    We can’t count on people in power, especially in our own government to openly tell us that they are liars, frauds, and criminals. We can’t depend on our corporate run media to tell us that either. So we have a choice. We can pretend that 9/11 was really done by a guy in a cave with a lap top computer, or we can accept the truth, and make the necessary corrections in our system. People in power want to stay in power, which is why they continue to use fear and create billion dollar agencies to control us and reduce our rights. They are conditioning us at this very moment to accept illogical and irrational behaviors that directly detract from our rights. TSA, FEMA, DHS. This is starting to resemble a police state is it not? And for what? Oil? Power? Greed? Satan?

        At the end, this small world is a transient place for we can willfully exercise our beliefs. I believed that already someone a supernatural being already set foot in this planet to tell the world on what to do and how to think. I think I have the moral knowledge to tell you what is right and to save all of you. I have done a less significant part by imparting what I have learned and what are my thoughts. Please do your part and hopefully somewhere, sometime, we can see each other and say “I am glad that we knew it! – Thank you my friend.”

          It’s interesting how nonsense like this post appears when people start discussing the eventual prosecution of the neocon criminals behind 9/11.

          I think there’s an active disinformation campaign to disrupt, distract, and discredit the 9/11 truth movement.

    It is high time we revive the “Spirit of ’76″! A Citizens Tribunal should keep a dozen gallows busy on the Capitol lawn fornational television. All three branches of government are thoroughly corrupt and beyond redemption. WE THE PEOPLE must remind the pirates in the District of Criminals that they should be accountable to us as public servants.

    CARTAhttps://mail.google.com/mail/?shva=1#sent/132040d7eb576367

    VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THIS AMERICAN HISTORY AND THE MASSIVE CONSEQUENCES OF THE FOLLOWING:

    If you have any guts whatsoever, you will carefully read this document in order to fully understand your legal status and come to terms with our current predicament. You are also hereby challenged to refute any of the following with valid cites. Good Luck:

    History

    The United States exists in two forms: The original United States that was in operation until 1860; a collection of sovereign Republics in the union. Under the original Constitution the States controlled the Federal Government; the Federal Government did not control the States and had very little authority.

    The original United States has been usurped by a separate and different UNITED STATES formed in 1871, which only controls the District of Columbia and it’s territories, and which is actually a corporation (the UNITED STATES CORPORATION) that acts as our current government. The United States Corporation operates under Corporate/Commercial/Public Law rather than Common/Private Law.

    The original Constitution was never removed; it has simply been dormant since 1871. It is still intact to this day. This fact was made clear by Supreme Court Justice Marshall Harlan (Downes v. Bidwell, 182, U.S. 244 1901) by giving the following dissenting opinion: “Two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions; the other to be maintained by Congress outside and Independently of that Instrument.”

    The Restore America Plan reclaimed the De Jure institutions of government of the 50 State Republics in order to restore Common Law that represents the voice of the people and ends Corporate Law that ignores the voice of the people while operating under Maritime/Admiralty/International Law. This occurred when warrants were delivered to all 50 Governors on March 30, 2010.

    The rewritten Constitution of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION bypasses the original Constitution for the United States of America, which explains why our Congressmen and Senators don’t abide by it, and the President can write Executive Orders to do whatever he/she wants. They are following corporate laws that completely strip sovereigns of their God given unalienable rights.

    Corporate/Commercial/Public Law is not sovereign (private), as it is an agreement between two or more parties under contract. Common Law (which sovereigns operate under) is not Commercial Law; it is personal and private.
    To understand this document, you need to understand some basic terms. Visit http://www.usavsus.info for complete understanding.
    The basic terms are:

    De Jure – Existing by right or according to law; original, lawful. Common Law operates under De Jure terms.
    De Facto – In practice but not necessarily ordained by law; in fact, in reality. Corporate Law operates under De Facto terms.
    Sovereign – A real person. Sovereigns can own property while Citizens/Subjects cannot. According to the original Constitution, all government comes from the Sovereign Individual. Without the Sovereign Individual, there is no government.

    U.S. Citizen/Subject – A corporate fictitious entity that merely represents the real person. It acts as a “strawman.” [To call oneself a “sovereign citizen” or “sovereign subject” is an oxymoron, since “sovereign” and “citizen/subject” are mutually exclusive of each other.] When asked if you are a “U.S. Citizen” on corporate legal documents, if you check “yes,” you agree to the terms of Corporate Law and unknowingly relinquish your sovereign status and transfer all of your rights to the UNITED STATES CORPORATION since you are now under contract.

    Corporation – A non-human, fictitious entity. Corporate fictitious entities are denoted in all caps. This includes the names of Citizens/Subjects. Your fictitious “strawman” entity is addressed in all caps, i.e. JOHN SMITH, rather than John Smith.

    Common Law – God’s law. Common Law and the system of De Jure Juries apply to sovereigns in disputes. In Common Law, contracts must be entered into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally.

    Admiralty/Maritime Law/International Law – The King’s law. Deals with criminal acts that only apply to international contracts. Under this law, the people are no longer sovereign. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) that the United States practices is based on Admiralty Law. Under the UCC, contracts do not have to be entered into knowingly. Simple agreements can be binding, and as long as you exercise the benefits of that “agreement,” you must meet the obligations associated with those benefits. If you accept the benefit offered by the government, then you MUST follow, to the letter, each and every statute involved with that benefit. That “benefit” is the Federal Reserve Notes (U.S. dollars). By paying for things with U.S. dollars you are unknowingly giving up all of your Constitutional rights and are legally obligated to follow all of the UCC statues. But you were NEVER told this.

    Lawful – A term used in Common Law.

    Legal – A term used in the UCC which applies to Corporate Law.

    HOW THE CONSTITUTION WAS USURPED BY THE CORPORATION

    (note by Panama Legal: These are the basic premises adhered to by the people in the movement and the people in the Sovereign movement. The Government is a Corporation actually functioning as the Federal Government. Thus it does not have to follow the constitution. Also it does not matter if Obama is not a natural born citizen since it is a corporation he is the head of. The corporation gets the permission of the people to reign over them by deceit. This is done by wording in the Birth Certificates, Social Security Cards, driving Licenses, IRS forms, Marriage Licenses and other documents. They always refer to the “person” in all capital letters. This means the name represents a corporate entity. This is how the corporation courts get jurisdiction over you. Their courts do not fly the “reaL” American flag. They use the military or admiralty flag. For a discourse on this try this website: http://www.usavsus.info/

    What the theory is goes like this. When you enter a US Courtroom there is a military or admiralty flag flying. The US Military does not have the protection of the constitution, neither does this apply to admiralty laws with ships at sea. When you enter a court room and cross through that little wooden gate they have and go to the area where the plaintiff (prosecutor) and defendant sit along with judge, court reporter, you are entering a “ship” or a foreign country as evidenced by the admiralty or military flag flying thus the constitution has no applicability and you are under equity law not common law. The flaw with their scheme is that there is no full disclosure to the people about any of this. This is brief over simplified synopsis of the scam run by the federal corporation. End of our comment.)

    Here is a Timeline of events that lead to the current United States.

    In 1788 (January 1), The United States was officially bankrupt.
    In 1790 (August 4), Article One of the U.S. Statues at Large, pages 138-178, abolished the States of the Republic and created Federal Districts. In the same year, the former States of the Republic reorganized as Corporations and their legislatures wrote new State Constitutions, absent defined boundaries, which they presented to the people of each state for a vote…the new State Constitutions fraudulently made the people “Citizens” of the new Corporate States. A Citizen is also defined as a “corporate fiction.”
    In 1845, Congress passed legislation that would ultimately allow Common Law to be usurped by Admiralty Law. http://www.barefootsworld.net/admiralty.html explains this change. The yellow fringe placed at the bottom of court flags shows this is still true. Before 1845, Americans were considered sovereign individuals who governed themselves under Common Law.
    In 1860 – Congress was adjourned Sine Die – Lincoln could not legally reconvene Congress.

    In 1861, President Lincoln declared a National Emergency and Martial Law, which gave the President unprecedented powers and removed it from the other branches. This has NEVER been reversed.

    In 1863, the Lieber Code was established taking away your property and your rights.

    From 1864-1867, Several Reconstruction Acts were passed forcing the states to ratify the 14th Amendment, which made everyone slaves.

    In 1865, the capital was moved to Washington, D.C., a separate country – not a part of the United States of America.

    In 1871, The United States became a Corporation with a new constitution and a new corporate government, and the original constitutional government was vacated to become dormant, but it was never terminated. The new constitution had to be ratified by the people according to the original constitution, but it never was. The whole process occurred behind closed doors. The people are the source of financing for this new government.

    In 1917, the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA) was passed. This insightful video from [link to movielocker.com/4084)] states the following: “This act was implemented to deal with the countries we were at war with during World War I. It gave the President and the Alien Property Custodian the right to seize the assets of the people included in this act and if they wanted to do business in this country they could apply for a license to do so. By 1921, the Federal Reserve Bank (the trustee for the Alien Property Custodian) held over $700,000,000 in trust.” Understand that this trust was based on our assets, not theirs.

    In 1933, 48 Stat 1, of the TWEA was amended to include the United States Person because they wanted to take our gold away. Executive Order 6102 was created to make it illegal for a U.S. Citizen to own gold. In order for the Government to take our gold away and violate our Constitutional rights, we were reclassified as ENEMY COMBATANTS.”

    In 1933, there was a second United States bankruptcy. In the first bankruptcy the United States collateralized all public lands. In the 1933 bankruptcy, the U.S. government collateralized the private lands of the people (a lien) – they borrowed money against our private lands. They were then mortgaged. That is why we pay property taxes.

    From a speech in Congress in The Bankruptcy of the United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993, Vol. 33, page H-1303, Speaker Representative James Trafficant Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House states:

    “…It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.

    The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part: “The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United States…

    Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property, free and clear of any liens of mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act (1913) “Hypothecated” all property within the Federal United States to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, in which the Trustees (stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. Citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a “beneficiary” of the trust via his/her birth certificate. In 1933, the Federal United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties, assets, and labor of their “subjects,” the 14th Amendment U.S. Citizen to the Federal Reserve System. In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United States Corporation all of the credit “money substitute” it needed.
    Like any debtor, the Federal United States government had to assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the Federal United States didn’t have any assets, they assigned the private property of their “economic slaves,” the U.S. Citizens, as collateral against the federal debt. They also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks, forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations as collateral against the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the international bankers.

    Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the People have exchanged one master for another.”

    In 1944, Washington D.C. was deeded to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by the Breton Woods Agreement. The IMF is made up of wealthy people that own most of the banking industries of the world. It is an organized group of bankers that have taken control of most governments of the world so the bankers run the world. Congress, the IRS, and the President work for the IMF. The IRS is not a U.S. government agency. It is an agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

    HOW CAN WE REPAIR OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW?

    “The Supreme Court has said the De Jure Government offices still exist but the people have failed to occupy them.
    Remember Downs v. Bidwell and the dissenting opinion of Justice Marshall Harlan? He said that two national governments exist; one to be maintained under the Constitution, with all its restrictions. This is one that We the people need to force our elected public officials to occupy – De Jure rule.

    We need to change that by organizing Grand Juries and putting our officials back under De jure rule and out of the Corporate (or Military) Rule that they are currently operating under.

    Our elected officials will then have to operate under the limits of their Oath of office to uphold the U.S. and State Constitutions, circa 1860. When they violate the Oath it’s a capital crime.

    The reason we go back to 1860 is because that is the last time we had lawful laws in this country.

    Where do the people get their power to convene a Grand Jury? The Magna Carta, 1215.

    Our Founding Fathers looked back to history for precedent when they decided they wanted to change their government. What they found was the Magna Carta Liberatum, the Great Charter of Freedoms. It set a precedent that changed the face of England forever, by establishing that the King was not above the law.

    King John of England signed the Magna Carta after immense pressure from the Church and his barons (the people). The King often lived above the law, violating both Feudal and Common Law, and was heavily criticized for his foreign policy and actions in England. The Barons, with the support of the Church, pressured King John to spell out a list of their rights and guarantee that those rights would be enforced. The Barons provided a draft, and after some negotiation, King John put his seal to the Magna Carta in Runnymede, in June of 1215.

    Section 61 set rules for establishing the Grand Jury. It states: Since we have granted all these things for God, for the better ordering of our kingdom, and to allay the discord that has arisen between us and our barons (people), and since we desire that they shall be enjoyed in their entirety, with lasting strength, forever, we give and grant to the barons the following security:

    The barons shall elect twenty-five of their number to keep, and cause to be observed with all their might, the peace and liberties granted and confirmed to them by this charter. If we, our chief justice, our officials, or any of our servants offend in any respect against any man, or transgress any of the articles of the peace or of this security, and the offense is made known to four of the said twenty-five barons, they shall come to us.”

    Doesn’t anybody recall when The Nixon administration accidentally sent an operative to find and “neutralise” columnist Jack Anderson for criticising the President? The agent thought they meant he ought to eliminate Jack Anderson due to imprecise wording in a meeting. The White House discovered this and contacted Anderson and told him of the mistake. Anderson went into hiding until the agent could re-called. Norm Colbert

  • StopUsingBanks

    Ok…..so one of the questions that people should be asking is – “what practical actions can I take?”
    Since the only really meaningful voting we can do aside from local elected officials is with our pocketbooks, here are a couple of ideas:
    1) Reduce your need for banks and the banking system – ie: use cash to the extent you can
    and if you’re going to bank, at the very least, pull out of the “FuckerBanks” (eg: Wells Fargo,
    Bank of Amerika, Chase, Citi and the like) and opt for local community institutions and
    credit unions as they are the ‘lesser of two evils.’
    2) Stop using Credit – Cut the credit cards up; just stop using the credit machine. Nearly
    every time you take out a loan from an institution, money is getting created. Use
    peer to peer lending (google it) and borrow from individuals if you must. Quite simply,
    get out of debt.
    3) Buy your gas from ‘lesser of the evils’ gas companies – I’m more inclined to buy from
    Citgo because it’s Venezuelan oil vs. Royal Dutch Shell whose corp. boards & big shareholders
    are prime movers & shakers in the new world order.
    4) Buy locally grown produce instead of “FrankinFoods” the Genetically Modified crap from
    big corporations.
    5) Support local and regional retailers to the extent you can vs. the giant behemoth corporations.
    6) Discourage your family and friends & their offspring from joining the service of the New
    World Order via the military. Check out http://www.WarIsARacket.com and .org. Decorated
    USMC general Smedley Butler said decades ago that his service in the military was
    basically his acting as a ‘strong man for…corporate interests around the globe.’
    7) Pay off your house for financial security.
    8) Invest in hard assets
    9) Get yourself healthy so as not to need the services of the mega-pharmacetical companies
    and opt for alternative therapies. Cancel your rip-off health insurance. A little known
    stat is that over 75% of people filing medical bankruptcy HAD health insurance when
    their ‘problem’ started. Your great grandma never had health insurance!! Why should
    you!? There are other ways to live aside from the pre-suppositions shoved down your
    throat by our insane culture. Investigate them!
    10) Help others to realize that there are plenty of real Jews (not Khazarian ‘jews’) who are
    very much anti-zionist and that they even have websites that will NEVER get mainstream
    publicity such as http://www.NKUSA.org
    11) Share the light of truth about 9/11 and especially Building 7. Write articles
    with inventive titles such as The Little Building that Couldn’t Because it Was Blown Up!
    12) Stop investing in wall street and channel your 401k & retirement dollars to first getting
    your debts paid off and figure out how to invest locally.
    13) Stop patronizing main-stream media outlets
    14) Allow you and your home to be a ‘pocket of resistance’
    15) Share with others the light of truth
    16) Realize that there are still plenty of opportunities to prosper and have joy outside of the
    culturally sanctioned modes of thinking.

      Loved your suggestions for “doing something”. If we all did these things, the NWO would come crashing down. We simply need to take responsibility for ourselves. We are adults, not children to be taken care of.

  • nader paul kucinich gravel mckinney baldwin ventura sheehan

    What Daniel Ellsberg is saying is 100% correct.

  • Michael

    People keep saying “a new investigation” needs to occur. Fact is there was never an investigation in the first place. The Kean Report was based on a government outline of what they say happened on 9/11. The question that needs to be asked is, “how could something as drastic as this happen without anyone taking the time to do a thorough investigation”?

      Absolutely, if there is a car accident there is an investigation, all we need to do to prove there is a conspiracy, is look at Bushs statements talking about why we should not have an investigation and then look at what the 911 families had to do to force the government to investigate, and then look at the ways the Republicans primarily thwarted any investigation from taking place, and then look at the statements by members of the commission who admit it was a white-wash.

      Bush himself said 100 times on TV that if we were to investigate how 911 happened so that it never happens again, “it would distract our intelligence agencies”.

    Good article and plenty of good reader comments !

    It would’ve been great to have a link to a video clip with Dan Ellsberg saying what’s cited in this article, but maybe such a clip is not presently available. Otherwise, I have nothing more to say, with everything that’s already been said in this page with the article and reader comments. There are a few very serious posts made by some readers and those should be read. And one provides links to learn more. Saying more in this post would be a lack of generosity, on my part. Time is of essence.

    It’s welcome, however, to learn that Sibel Edmonds and what she has said and has to say has not been forgotten! Let Truth be freed.

    Unprecedented effort for new investigation to be launched on 9/11 anniversary

    
U.S. SENATOR LEADS MASSACHUSETTS 
INITIATIVE CAMPAIGN FOR A NEW 9/11 COMMISSION

    (Boston, MA) Senator Mike Gravel announced today the inauguration of a citizens’ campaign to authorize a new investigation of the events of September 11, 2001 after his proposed ballot measure was certified today by the Attorney General of Massachusetts, Martha Coakley.

    If adopted by the voters, the new law would create an independent, citizen-led investigatory commission that would be seated in Massachusetts and be vested with subpoena power and the power to take testimony under oath. “I personally initiated this effort to create a new 9/11 commission,” stated Gravel, “in response to the outpouring of calls for a new investigation—in the light of new evidence—from Americans across the political spectrum. Because our gridlocked Congress is obviously incapable of taking up this issue, I believe that state initiatives are our best alternative approach. Massachusetts is an optimal state in which to begin this work.”

    Statewide Ballot Initiative Campaign for a New 9/11 Commission

    Senator Gravel—a native of Massachusetts—will kick off the ballot initiative campaign on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of 9/11 with a major press conference, followed by a 12-day tour of the state. The press conference will be held on September 13, 2011 at 11:00 am on the steps of the Massachusetts state house on Beacon Hill.

    Direct Democracy: The Way Forward

    Presently, our heroic 9/11 truth activists can continue to educate Americans and the world’s people with the hope of pressing the U.S. Congress to act. However, it is evident to me that the federal government won’t act to change the official 9/11 story line; and the American people simply can’t act, given the structure of our representative democracy. All the people can do is educate, agitate and protest, and give their power away to representatives on Election Day. That’s because of one obvious reality: the way to meaningful citizen participation in public policy is blocked by the elites now in control of the mainstream media and of government (regardless of party). Citizens lack access to the legislative procedures needed to implement the central power of government––lawmaking––at the federal level. Indeed, this is true as well in most governmental jurisdictions of the United States. But fortunately there are 24 states that have some form of initiative lawmaking where people can enact laws.

    snip

    The key element of the proposed initiative is the use of a Joint Powers Agreement, whereby similar laws enacted in several states are harmonized to create one single commission. The Joint Powers Agreement also facilitates the endorsement and participation of other state governments at a later time, thereby adding their grand jury powers to the Commission. Our plan envisions enacting an initiative law in one or more states. These proposed initiatives would be presented to state voters for their decision on November 6, 2012.

    The Challenge Ahead: Building an Effective Citizen’s Campaign

    Success or failure will be determined by the resources that can be brought to bear on our organizational efforts and the petition campaigns to qualify the initiatives and secure their approval by the people. Success will require money––the mother’s milk of politics.

    If we are able to raise the necessary funds for this undertaking, I believe there is no possibility of failure. Regardless what happens we will certainly advance the national debate on 9/11––alerting more Americans to the problem, and more importantly, pointing to an actionable plan where the people are the solution––not the government.

    I don’t think any single thing would benefit our democracy more than breaking up the media conglomerates.

  • OH

    How do you feel about conspiracy theories like missiles instead of planes, the Mossad, and these other blatant distractions apparently planted by Bush and the CIA in order to dis-credit the real 911 whislteblowers???

    This article, if it were up on some other websites, would have nothing but comments from people calling the author part of the cover-up, because the author says nothing about the missiles instead of planes and all those conspiracy kook sideshow coverup distraction stories?

    I think not spending our money on major big dollar news resources like the NYT, Washington Post, whatever is critical (comcast … i am arguing with my family about this now … this is not easy!!) It makes so much sense that if there is one institution that could make a difference it is the media. I believe that the folks that own and run the funds that own the major news media (the proverbial “they”) like keeping folks like Maddow and the other MSNBC liberal hosts on air simply because it diffuses the growth of real fact based news programming such as Democracy Now, or the Nation Magazine. (I do believe that all so called “alternative” news resources increased readership at a pretty good clip starting in about 2000 or so).

    The most political thing you will ever do is decide where to spend your money.

    Whatever you do, even if the press somehow becomes amenable to an alternative 9/11 narrative, do buy the story that terrorists were responsible for the deed. That is is the meme the real 9/11 culprits want you to believe. Take the recent “revelations” former terrorist czar Richard Clarke made about how the CIA knew about two 9/11 terrorists prior to 9/11 and had the CIA told the FBI 9/11 probably would have been prevented. That’s B.S. It looks like he is tattle telling about the CIA but what he is really doing is keeping the terrorist meme alive. Clarke is really saying, don’t look toward the US government Keep your eyes on those wild-eyed Muslims. So what if the CIA looks clumsy, incompetent and even suspicious? Remember in the movie “The Sting” how Paul Newman had to look like a loser in order to keep the “mark” in the game? The CIA is willing to look bad as long as we, the marks, continue to believe terrorists are responsible for 9/11.

    • Cosimo diRondo

      Just to be clear, by definition, terrorists are in fact responsible for 9/11. It is the identity of those terrorists that is being obfuscated.

    “Truth”-Out has joined the corporate media in covering up this false-flag attack on American democracy: They’ve CENSORED readers’ comments that point out the inconsistencies in the government’s “official” story of what happened on 9/11.

    I posted links to research that showed nano-thermite residues in the debris of all three WTC buildings (http://www.benthamscience.com/open/tocpj/articles/V002/7TOCPJ.htm ), and called them cowardly for standing with the rest of the corporate media in covering up this evidence. They then censored my comment and blocked me from posting on “Truth”-Out.

    “Truth”-Out is controlled by people who want to be “accepted” by the corporate media, and can’t be counted on to give the real truth. Maybe they want to be the next Huffington Post (which also censors the truth about 9/11).

    On the other hand Amped Status (http://ampedstatus.org/ ) has courageously reported the truth about 9/11 (and other issues!), and is actively investigating this vicious act of DOMESTIC terrorism: http://ampedstatus.org/network/groups/9-11-investigation/

    Their site is a breath of fresh air! Check it out!
