The US government shut down a series of court cases arising from a multimillion pound business dispute in order to conceal evidence of a damning intelligence failure shortly before the 9/11 attacks, MPs were told.
Moreover, the UK government is now seeking similar powers that could be used to prevent evidence of illegal acts and embarrassing failures from emerging in court, David Davis, the former shadow home secretary, told the Commons.
I first began following Jon Gold’s (@911JusticeNow) work in late 2003. The attacks of September 11th, 2001 and the subsequent invasions and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq galvanized me from apathy to a newfound political consciousness, and I soon discovered his work on one of the first websites questioning the official theory of 9/11. What impressed me about his research was that he was deeply committed to using verifiable facts found in mainstream news articles and reports. But perhaps what stands out most about his activism is his unwavering support for the first responders. He was made “Honorary Director” of the FealGood Foundation. He describes himself as “an American trying to make a difference.”
What is the number one top most important thing to remember about how alcoholic clown prince George W. Bush acted in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks? Was it the EIGHT THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED THIRTY-FOUR TRILLION DOLLAR WAR that he started for fun and oil and murder? No, because who remembers those things. That crazy elephantine orgy of torture and child execution is gone from the radar these days. So here you are, a signed “baseball card” of Hero George Dubya throwing a pitch at Yankee Stadium during Game 3 of the World Series, right after 9/11, to make us feel better. It is good to see that in these hard economic times, it is still possible to make a “9/11 memories” buck.
The Center for Public Integrity identified 935 lies (no doubt a conservative estimate) Bush and Cheney and their neocon enablers told to justify attacking and occupying Iraq. And they lied about many other things as well: domestic surveillance, the “war on terror,” torture, the Plame affair, etc. The list is endless. Yet our minds recoil at the idea that they lied about the events of 9/11. This is because the implications are just too terrible to contemplate.
"I first became deeply interested in 9/11 in May 2002, when a series of stories appeared suggesting that the Bush administration had received more warning before 9/11 than they had admitted. First, it was revealed that one month before 9/11, President Bush had received a memo entitled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." Next, FBI agent Coleen Rowley divulged that here Minnesota FBI units attempt to obtain a search warrant a few weeks ...
"The official dissembling and excuse-making about the true causes and prior mistakes that gave rise to and allowed the terrorist attacks to happen, almost immediately ushered in the Bush-Cheney Administration's egregious and lawless, post 9-11 "war on terror" agenda which bore no connection to the original causes and no connection to the goal of reducing terrorism and making the world ...
The United Nations has called on the United States to conduct a full investigation into torture under the administration of former US President George W. Bush. [...] The UN special rapporteur on torture, Juan Ernesto Mendez, urged Washington on Tuesday to prosecute offenders as well as senior officials who ordered the abuse of prisoners in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. In his book, Bush confirms that he personally approved a request by CIA agents to use waterboarding and other forms of torture in the interrogation of so-called “terror suspects.”
