9/11 ten years on: there are no excuses for buying the myth

By the Editor.
New York City, New York. On September 8, 2011 – three days before the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement warning of a ‘credible, specific, but unconfirmed‘ terror threat in New York City and Washington DC. Most obviously, a terror threat that is at once credible and specific, and yet is unconfirmed, is self-evidently contrived.
Keeping true to the decade-long history of scaremongering based on the mythical ‘war on terror’ narrative, the al Qaeda ghost has been recruited again, …

9/11 and the Orwellian Redefinition of “Conspiracy Theory”

Let’s take a minute to re-acquaint ourselves with the 9/11 official explanation, which is not regarded as a conspiracy theory despite the fact that it comprises an amazing conspiracy.
by Paul Craig Roberts.
While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.
A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories …

Twin Towers evacuated several times in weeks leading up to 9/11

People.com, September 12, 2001 (link now dead). Click here for a cached version.
Some were on their way to work in lower Manhattan. Others were already sitting at their desks, checking e-mail, sipping coffee or reading their morning papers. Still others were working in kitchens and garages when they heard and felt the sickening crash. Bathed in soot and shaken to their souls, they are the survivors of what New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called “one of the most heinous acts in world history.” The life and death drama that followed the …

Heightened Security Alert Had Just Been Lifted
By Curtis L. Taylor and Sean Gardiner, September 12, 2001 (link now dead). Click here for a cached version.
The World Trade Center was destroyed just days after a heightened security alert was lifted at the landmark 110-story towers, security personnel said yesterday.
Daria Coard, 37, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on Thursday, bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed.
“Today was the first day there was not …

911: The Charlie Veitch Situation

By the Editor.
In ‘Charlie Veitch is a sell-out and a coward‘, I wrote about Veitch’s sudden u-turn on 9/11. Just to update the situation – since then it has come out that the TV show he has been invited to work on is by the BBC and is aimed at debunking ’9/11 conspiracies’. Don’t all gasp at once.
This is precisely what we’ve all been expecting as the tenth anniversary approaches – more misdirection and propaganda to discredit the truth movement and distract from the ongoing cover-up. The Critical Thought Agenda …

Charlie Veitch is a sell-out and a coward

By the Editor. Update – see also: The Charlie Veitch Situation.
I deliberated briefly on exactly what the title of this article would be. ‘British activist performs inexplicable u-turn on 9/11′? ‘Leader of ‘The Love Police’ given TV show, suddenly drops 9/11 truth’? But indeed the deliberation was brief; there’s no reason to beat around the bush. Charlie Veitch is a sell-out and a self-serving coward. Or maybe he’s just a gullible idiot of the highest order.
Veitch, who came to prominence with his activist group …

The Last Word on Osama Bin Laden

By James Corbett, 24 May, 2011.

This is James Corbett of corbettreport.com with the last word on Osama Bin Laden.
Osama Bin Laden was one of the 54 children of Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a construction magnate who made his fortune by cozying up to the royal family of Saudi Arabia. The bin Laden family has had an intimate relationship with the upper reaches of global power politics for the past half a century.
In 1976 Salem bin Laden, Osama’s half-brother, co-founded Arbusto Energy with George W. Bush.

The Theory of the Conspiracy Theory

By Emrah Kaynak, 13 May, 2011, via Irradiee.
Much of the discussion on the announcement of the death of bin Laden is devoted to disqualifying critical thinking by assimilating it with paranoid delusions.  Whoever has expressed suspicion of various official narratives has immediately been saddled with the unflattering ‘conspiracy theorist’ epithet. The corporate media uncritically sides with power and is trying hard to make coherent the incoherent.
The concept of “conspiracy theory” is used improperly and systematically to discredit any rational inquiry.  The undefined contours of this framework/concept can encompass …
