Joining member of Congress, family members of 9/11 victims urged the Obama Administration to declassify previously secret portions of the Congressional investigation into the September 11th attacks and reveal more truth about what happened on that day. Educated speculation, informed by leaks from those familiar with 28 pages redacted from the report suggested the involvement of Saudi Arabian nationals.
In several of the latest emails to emerge from Wikileaks’ Global Intelligence Files release, Stratfor CEO George Friedman and Vice President of Intelligence Fred Burton speculate on the fate of Osama bin Laden’s corpse, with Burton suggesting that a sea burial wasn’t likely ["I don't see the FBI nor DOJ letting that happen"] and then later confidently stating that the body was being transferred to Dover, Delaware and then on to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda, Maryland.

In another email 10 hours later, Burton indicates that the body was in fact buried at sea:
In sworn statements that seem likely to reignite debate, two former senators who were privy to top secret information on the Saudis’ activities say they believe that the Saudi government might have played a direct role in the terrorist attacks. Still, Washington has continued to stand behind Saudi Arabia, with the Justice Department joining the kingdom in trying to have the lawsuits thrown out of court on the grounds that the Saudis are protected by international immunity.
Speaking today in an interview on AM radio, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly defended revelations that the NYPD has been conducting massive surveillance of random Muslim citizens in and around New York, saying that the critics of the program “have short memories as to what happened here in 2001.”
Longtime 9/11 activist and 9/11 Truth News contributor Jon Gold has released his autobiographical book 9/11 Truther: The Fight for Peace, Justice and Accountability. “9/11 Truther is the story of an everyday American who saw that something was wrong with what we were told about 9/11, and tried to do something about it.” The book features a foreword by peace activist Cindy Sheehan and is currently available on Amazon.
One of the first juicy bits to trickle out of Wikileaks release of 5 million Stratfor emails is the comment from Fred Burton, Stratfor’s Vice President of Intelligence, that the Imam of the controversial so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” is an “FBI operational asset.” Burton, who was formerly a special agent with the US State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service and the Deputy Chief of their counterterrorism division, made the comment on an email chain regarding a New York Observer article, Untangling the Bizarre CIA Links to the Ground Zero Mosque. The controversy surrounding the “Ground Zero mosque” overwhelmingly dominated the news and discussion surrounding the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
Former Florida Senator Bob Graham has seen two classified FBI documents that he says raise new questions about the Bureau’s once secret investigation of a possible Saudi support operation for the 9/11 hijackers in Sarasota. Graham would not disclose the content of the documents, which are marked “Secret,” but said the information they contain is at odds with the FBI’s public statements that there was no connection between the hijackers and Saudis then living in Sarasota.
A Saudi Arabian accused of associating with several of the September 11 hijackers and who disappeared from his home in the United States a few weeks before the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, is in London working for his country’s state oil company.
I would like to say that I am proud of everyone that has made it to the streets with Occupy Wall Street. For quite a while now, Cindy Sheehan, myself, and others, through our organization "Peace of the Action," have been trying to get people to put their bodies on the "gears of the machine."
