“We got started late; we had a very short time frame… we did not have enough money… We had a lot of people strongly opposed to what we did. We had a lot of trouble getting access to documents and to people… So there were all kinds of reasons we thought we were set up to fail.” – Lee Hamilton, Vice Chairman, 9/11 Commission
“At some level of the government, at some point in time… there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened… I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described… The [Norad air defense] tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years.” ~ John Farmer, Senior Counsel to the 9-11 Commission
“I’ve chosen to go to court rather than accept a payoff from the 9/11 victims compensation fund. Instead, I want to know what went so wrong with our intelligence and security systems that a band of religious fanatics was able to turn four U.S passenger jets into an enemy force, attack our cities and kill 3,000 civilians with terrifying ease. I want to know why two 110-story skyscrapers collapsed in less than two hours and why escape and rescue options were so limited. I am suing because unlike other investigative avenues, including congressional hearings and the 9/11 commission, my lawsuit requires all testimony be given under oath and fully uses powers to compel evidence.” (“My Silence Cannot be Bought”) – Beverly Eckert, whose husband died at the World Trade Center, is the founder of Voices of September 11th.
“If you ridicule others who have sincere doubts and who know factual information that directly contradicts the official report and who want explanations from those who hold the keys to our government, and have motive, means, and opportunity to pull off a 9/11, but you are too lazy or fearful, or … to check into the facts yourself, what does that make you? Scholars for 9/11 truth have developed reams of scientific data. Michael Ruppert published an exhaustive account of the case from the viewpoint of a trained investigator. David Ray Griffin provides a context for the unanswered or badly answered questions that should nag at anyone who pretends to love this country.” (Read more) – Lt. Col. Shelton F. Lankford, US Marine Corps (Retired)
“Through my research I learned that many mainstream people, government officials, pilots and regular “Joes” actually doubt the “official” story. Yet the media still treats “Truth” seekers like they have a mental disorder, are few and far between, and even dangerous. I’ve since learned there are major news stories concerning 9/11 that the media won’t cover. Do you know about Tower 7? And, did you know that Japan, who lost 24 of their citizens in the 9/11 attacks, has held hearings this year on the possibility that the “official” story isn’t the truth? Why hasn’t the media covered THIS? I’ve since learned about the whistleblowers that have been silenced.” (Read More) – Erik Lawyer, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth
NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) (Updated Sep. 11, 2009) – An alliance of 100 prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the government had foreknowledge and “consciously failed to act,” with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation. … (Read the full statement)

9/11 Truth For Beginner’s – 101
…A very short course for those just beginning to explore the events surrounding 9/11/2001. Since September 11, 2001, a diverse body of independent researchers have uncovered thousands of facts that have not been reported in the main stream corporate media or become part of the official story in the “9/11 Commission Report”. This short course will provide you with compelling information that will help you to more fully understand the events surrounding 9/11.
The Facts Speak for Themselves Before I begin, I would like to say that theorizing about what happened on 9/11, when you’re not being given answers to your questions about that day by the people who SHOULD be able to do so, is PERFECTLY normal. As is suspecting that the reason these answers aren’t being given is “sinister” in nature. As Ray McGovern said, “for people to dismiss these questioners as “conspiratorial advocates”, or “conspiratorial theorists”… that’s completely out of line because the… The questions remain because the President who should be able to answer them, WILL NOT.” When you think about everything the previous Administration did in 8 years, the idea that they might not be giving us the answers we seek because of something “sinister” is not crazy. In fact, it’s the most logical conclusion one can come to at this point. After years of obfuscation, spin, lies, and cover-ups regarding the 9/11 attacks, it is unavoidable to think that criminal complicity is the reason why. (Read More)

“On August 31, 2004, Zogby International, the official North American political polling agency for Reuters, released a poll that found nearly half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of those in New York state believe US leaders had foreknowledge of impending 9/11 attacks and “consciously failed” to act. Of the New York City residents, 66% called for a new probe of unanswered questions by Congress or the New York Attorney General. Since that time, multiple professional polling organizations have obtained similar results in polls conducted nationally and internationally. … On the eighth anniversary of 9/11, in spite of Americans having elected the “other” party in hopes it would deliver on its promise of a change in direction, we find ourselves asking these same questions and encountering the same resistance to transparency….” (Read the full 2009 911Truth Statement).

Prominent People who challenge the Official 9/11 Story
Despite recent C-Span and news coverage, most Americans have no idea that there is a growing body of respected Professors, Physicists, Engineers, Scientists, Pilots, Intelligence and Law Enforcement Officers, as well as Foreign Government Officials bringing forth unanswered questions, evidence and expert witness testimony which indicates that we were NOT told the truth about the events of 9/11 in the 9/11 Commission’s Report. Before you dismiss this as being nothing more than a “Conspiracy Theory”, please review this partial list of prominent people who challenge the 9/11 Commission findings and who champion a new, full and impartial investigation into the events preceding, during and since September 11, 2001: patriotsquestion911.com/.
“In our opinion, Dr. David Ray Griffin, speaker and author of several books on exposing the Truth surrounding the events of 9/11, is one of the clearest, most insightful and understandable advocates of the Truth in the world today. There is a Presentation/Essay that he has written entitled “9/11: The Myth and the Reality” that provides a clear and logical understanding of the political and scientific evidence indicating that the official story provided to explain the terror attacks of 9/11 was a fraud.” (www.journalof911studies.com/beginners)

Investigating 9/11, or not so much? The 9/11 Commission was originally given a budget of $3-million to conduct its investigation. That’s a little less than one-fifth of one percent of one percent — about zero-point-zero-zero-18% — of the $166-billion already spent, committed, and requested just for this year’s occupation and ‘reconstruction’ of Iraq. The investigation’s budget was later increased, after much complaining from the Commission itself, to $12-million. Some reports say the budget is now $14-million. By comparison, when the shuttle Columbia disintegrated during its descent in February 2003, $50-million was budgeted for an investigation, which began about an hour and a half after the disaster. Another $305-million was spent by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), searching for shuttle debris. The investigation into the shuttle accident began publicly releasing its findings within several weeks, and concluded its work with an exhaustive report about six months later. (Read More)

US PLANNED FAKE TERROR ATTACKS ON CITIZENS TO CREATE SUPPORT FOR CUBAN WAR
…In [Joint Chief’s chair] Lemnitzer’s view, the country would be far better off if the generals could take over. [JFK assassination legend has it some general presided over the fudgy JFK autopsy. –Mk]
For those military officers who were sitting on the fence, the Kennedy administration’s botched Bay of Pigs invasion was the last straw. “The Bay of Pigs fiasco broke the dike,” said one report at the time. “President Kennedy was pilloried by the super patriots as a ‘no-win’ chief . . . The Far Right became a fount of proposals born of frustration and put forward in the name of anti-Communism. . . Active-duty commanders played host to anti-Communist seminars on their bases and attended or addressed Right-wing meetings elsewhere.”
Although no one in Congress could have known it at the time, Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs had quietly slipped over the edge.
According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of antiCommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.
