Some of the events of September 11, 2001, were under-reported because a lot of things happened
that day and the news media focused on the biggest story and let the rest fall into one-sentence
headlines. But since then, there have been several other terrorist attacks (apparently)
that have been downplayed in the mainstream news media and passed off as "isolated
incidents," misunderstandings, or misinterpretation of the evidence. Three under-scrutinized
events are discussed in subsections below.

The Mystery of Flight 77 and the Pentagon Impact
Flight 77 – Where is the plane? I'm not
sure what this proves, but it is rather strange. In all the photographs of the Pentagon after the 9/11/01
explosion, have you ever seen a picture that includes pieces of an airplane?
A 757-200 is
124 feet wide and 155 feet long.
911 In Plane Sight. Contrary to the video
footage shown to the American public, photographs taken only moments after the impact show no wreckage on the
lawn of the Pentagon. Where is the plane? Where are the wings, the tail, the luggage, the seats,
the landing gear, and the engines? Most importantly, what happened to the passengers who were aboard
Secret Files 9/11 Investigators Missed. Are many of the secrets of 9/11 still hidden in top-secret
government files? Almost certainly, say former staff members of the 9/11 Commission. With the nation
scheduled to mark the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks this weekend, former staffers tell The Daily Beast
it is clear that the 9/11 Commission, which went out of business in 2004, failed to conduct a thorough inspection
of the government's most important library of raw intelligence on al Qaeda and the 9/11 plot. And nobody
appears to have inspected that intelligence since.
Pentagon Attack: Some of the
clearest proof that 9/11 was an act of United States Sponsored Terrorism comes from a close examination
of the Pentagon Attack. In the above picture by Daryl Donley taken minutes after the attack at the
Pentagon, the intense fireball is seen as coming from inside the building, and no wreckage of an airline
crash is apparent.
Flight 77 Hit the Pentagon? There is controversy over the question of whether
AA Flight 77 actually did hit the Pentagon on Sept 11. It centers around a large
amount of photographic evidence that the damage to the Pentagon is neither big enough, nor
of the right shape to have been caused by a 757 jet, that there is insufficient sign of
wreckage or bodies, and that power poles which apparently should have been in the path of
the jet are still standing. The damage appears to be more consistent with having been
caused by a bomb and/or a missile or small jet.

Flight 77 - Pentagon Event Investigation.
9-11 and the
Impossible. The harsh truth of 9-11 is that the "official
version" just doesn't stand up, against even elementary scrutiny. Despite
the "official" denials, there were overwhelming warnings of suicide hijackers; but
no warnings to the public or airline pilots.
The Five-Sided Fantasy
Island. Earliest reports from the Pentagon indicated that a
helicopter explosion or attack took place. However, during the course of the
day, two legends were put into place — the first, that the Pentagon was
struck by an airliner; and also an alternative hoax, that a missile was
responsible. But no tangible, verifiable evidence of an airliner
crash at the Pentagon has ever been produced.
Department of Defense Responds to Judicial Watch
FOIA Request and Related Lawsuit. The Department of Defense released a videotape that
allegedly shows American Airlines Flight 77 striking the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
See the video.
The video shows nothing that looks like an airplane. It was allegedly "part of an ongoing
investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui." But after seeing the newly released video, it
is difficult to imagine the logic of that explanation. In my opinion, it was kept from public
view simply because the government thrives on secrecy. The government has had several
years to find or manufacture at least one believable frame of video that shows an airplane
hitting the Pentagon, and that still hasn't been done.
New Tape Stirs Up 9/11 Conspiracy
Theories. With Tuesday's release of video footage of American Airlines Flight 77 crashing
into the Pentagon building, an attack that killed 184 people on Sept. 11, questions rage
again. "It doesn't clarify anything — I don't see a plane in that image," said Michael
Berger, spokesman for 911Truth.org. "In fact, I thought that was underwhelming."
Photos from the Pentagon Crash Site.
No evidence of a Boeing 757, but the damage is certainly consistent with a cruise missile strike.
On the other hand... this opposing viewpoint is presented as a public service.
Getting the Facts
Straight: A growing number of people have been led to believe that an airliner
did not hit the Pentagon on 9/11. However, in this case the "official version" of
events is irrefutable.
That A Boeing 757 Really Did Impact the Pentagon on 9/11. Among
the many questions lingering after the catastrophic events of 9/11/2001 are
the various speculations that the Pentagon attack was by some other means than a
hijacked passenger airliner. This document seeks to put these theories to rest.
Questions about Flight 93
United Flight 93 crashed
without cockpit struggle. Passengers aboard United Airlines Flight 93
fought back against the hijackers but never actually made it into the cockpit,
the Sept. 11 commission concluded.
The Flight 93 Memorial is a Mosque, Celebrating the Crash.
The original Crescent of Embrace design for the Flight 93 memorial (left) was laid out in the configuration of an Islamic crescent and star
flag (right). The crash site sits between the tips of the giant crescent, in the position of the star on an Islamic flag.

being built in Pennsylvania.
Claims Flight 93 'was shot down'. The absence of any significant debris — including
tailplane and wings — bewildered witnesses, relatives and, more importantly, some crash
experts. They found it hard to believe that an airliner up to 155 feet long, with
two engines each weighing more than six tons, could have penetrated the ground so completely
as to utterly disappear. Had it, in reality, been blown to pieces in mid-air? Certainly
it is unclear how a single piece of fuselage the size of a dining room table could have been recovered
from a marina in Indian Lake, a couple of miles away from the crash site — unless it fell from
the sky during an aerial break-up. But a bigger mystery is why the engines went missing.
The Mysterious and Under-reported Collapse of World Trade Center Building Seven
WTC 7 was a huge office building a few blocks away from the twin towers. WTC 7 was not hit
by an airplane on September 11, 2001, yet it mysteriously collapsed that afternoon, for no apparent
reason. The incident was only briefly mentioned in the news media on September 11 and 12, and
was never mentioned again. It is the most obvious example of a news story going immediately down
the "memory hole" into news media oblivion, with no questions asked.
Did World Trade Center Building 7 Fall? New Study Claims Gov't Story Is False. Last Wednesday [9/6/2017],
Dr. J. Leroy Hulsey of the University of Alaska Fairbanks presented the findings and conclusion of his team's two-year
engineering study evaluating whether fire caused the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on September 11, 2001. Many "9/11
Truth" researchers focus on the mysterious collapse of World Trade Center 7 (WTC7) as the smoking gun evidence that Americans
were lied to about the attacks. WTC7 was not hit by a plane, yet it collapsed at 5:20 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2001.
According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the collapse was caused by office fires leading to thermal expansion
of the building's supportive columns and girders. Dr. Hulsey's presentation, "A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse
of World Trade Center 7, September 2017 Progress Report", detailed how his team eliminated fire as the cause of the collapse
of the 47-storey building. Hulsey explained that NIST's report on the collapse found fires on floors 7 through 9, 11 through
14, 19, 22, 29, and 30. However, there is no evidence of fire below floor 7, Hulsey said. [Video clip]
9/11 an inside job? Call for truth over Building 7 collapse on eve of 15th anniversary. Some claim there
must have been a "controlled detonation" at ground level for the Twin Towers to fall in on themselves as they did. One
key part of their argument is the collapse of a third smaller tower, called Building 7, at the World Trade Centre complex,
several hours after the huge skyscrapers fell. Yesterday [9/8/2016], the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance held
its 12th annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival, where the British documentary Incontrovertible was screened. The online film
by Tony Rooke looks at why Building 7 collapsed in the way that it did and the official explanation given after an
investigation by the The National Institute of Standards and Technology, based near Washington DC, who still refuses to
release all of its data amid claims it could "compromise public safety".
Declassified Pages Do Nothing To Explain Implausibility Of 9/11 Official Story. [Scroll down] Questions still remain as to
why WTC building number 7 fell when no plane had hit the building and was only infected with mild office fires. The 28 Pages
do nothing to explain the contradiction between the official explanation of how the towers fell and how they actually fell on the morning of
9/11. The American public was told by the 9/11 Commission to believe that the buildings collapsed under gravity from structural failure due
mainly to fires initiated by the impacts of the airplanes. But as many experts have pointed out, this is highly unlikely considering the
spread of debris that occurred in a massive radius around the towers and the obvious pulverization of the buildings' make-up. "Large multi-ton
beams were hurled hundreds of yards laterally, gravity works vertically not laterally," explains Jody Gibbs, a 35-year architect and member of
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The thousands of experts with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth are quick to point out
that the manner in which the WTC buildings fell and the ejections of pieces of the buildings exhibit all the signs of a demolition.
An extremely rare mention of WTC Building 7, eleven years after it imploded:
Judge Rules United Not Liable for
9/11 Collapse. The plaintiff in the case, Larry Silverstein, the leaseholder of the World Trade Center property, claimed that the
collapse of 7 World Trade Center stemmed from airport security lapses that allowed hijackers to crash an American Airlines plane into the
complex. [...] Tower 7 collapsed several hours after being pierced by debris from the crash of American Airlines Flight 11 into the
nearby 1 World Trade Center.
The BBC's 'WTC 7 Collapsed
At 4:54 p.m.' Videos. At 21:54 GMT on 9/11/2001 the BBC announced that WTC 7 had
collapsed. There was just one problem with this news: WTC 7 did not collapse until 22:20 GMT.
Jowenko is Dead, 3 Days After Sabrosky Interview. Demolition expert Danny Jowenko, one of world's
leading building demolition experts, was killed in a one-car accident last week when his car slammed into a
tree. Jowenko received international attention as the expert who unequivocally described the collapse
of Building 7 at the World Trade Center on 911 as a "demolition." Jowenko made the judgment before he
knew it was WTC7 he was watching on the video. He commented: "This is a controlled demolition
which was carried out by a team of experts."
The Editor says...
Who Concluded WTC 7 Was A Controlled Demolition Killed In Car Accident. In 2007 reports began to
circulate that Jowenko had retracted his stance on the footage of WTC7, however, he reaffirmed his previous
opinion in a phone call with blogger Jeff Hill, noting "When the FEMA makes a report that it came down by fire,
and you have to earn your money in the States as a controlled demolition company and you say, 'No, it was a
controlled demolition', you're gone. You know?"
If Building 7 was imploded by demolition experts, the other two buildings probably were, too.
9/11 Debunking. All but the most dogmatic readers will find Griffin's evidence — from the
inconsistencies between NORAD tapes and the 9/11 Commission Report to rigorous exploration into the physics of the
collapse — detailed and deeply unnerving. For instance, Griffin considers the fact that firefighters were told,
five hours before the fact, that building WTC 7 was going to collapse, despite "the fact that WTC 7 was not
hit by a plane, that the available photographs show no large fires, and that fire had never caused a steel-frame
high-rise to collapse."
Stop Belittling the Theories About September 11.
The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly did not collapse and fall to earth because
hijacked aircraft hit them. A plane did not hit Building 7 of the Center, which also collapsed.
All three were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11.
A substantial volume of evidence shows that typical residues and byproducts from such demolition charges were present
in the three buildings after they collapsed. The quality of the research done on this subject is quite impressive.
Millions call for an independent 9/11 investigation.
Did fire alone pulverize three steel-framed buildings at the World Trade Center? This would be the first time
in history that steel-framed buildings have completely collapsed due to fire. Especially puzzling is the fact
that Building 7 collapsed even though it was never hit by an aircraft. Could a Boeing 757 disappear in a
hole in the Pentagon smaller than the size of the plane itself? How did engines weighing several tons vanish?
This would be the first time in the history of airline crashes that engines disintegrated.
Controlled Demolitions of
September 11, 2001. This compilation of previously released material shows that the World
Trade Center buildings (Twin Towers and Building 7) were brought down by controlled demolition.
The Top four Unanswered
Questions About 9-11. This video highlights four of the most obvious questions that still, after all
these years, remain unanswered and totally ignored by our government. They refuse to answer them. There is no
good reason for not doing so. It speaks volumes about what kind of people we have running our government.
Foreknowledge of WTC 7's Collapse: At least
two television networks made premature announcements of the collapse of WTC 7. The BBC unequivocally
announced the collapse about 23 minutes before the fact, and even featured a New York correspondent speaking
of the collapse in past tense with the still-erect skyscraper standing behind her.

and Engineers for 9-11 Truth founder, Richard Gage, AIA, began the conference quoting Mark Twain who said, "If
you don't read the newspapers you're uninformed. If you do read them you're misinformed." Gage said
he hoped the assembled press would help to rectify that situation. "Today I'm quite pleased to announce
that now we have more than one thousand architects and engineers signed on to the A&E911Truth petition demanding
of Congress a new and truly independent, unimpeachable investigation into the destruction of the three World
Trade Center skyscrapers on 9-11," Gage said to a cheering audience.
WTC 7: A short computation.
I provide a short computation, focused on World Trade Center building 7. Based on very favorable
assumptions for achieving a fast fall, including ignoring resistance due to intact steel columns, I could only
get the building to fall in about 8.3 seconds, whereas the observed roof-fall time is approximately
6.5 seconds. The problem is the large number of floors and conservation of momentum in a
collision. Some of the "official" explanations about progressive collapse are evocative but
they do not explain the difficulty in the rapid fall of the building along with what is evidently
taking place when the video of the falling building is observed.
911 Blogger: 911blogger.com started out by filling a void in the
blogger community by covering 9/11 related alternative news. There are now plenty of blogs that do this.
911blogger will continue to cover 9/11 related news, but will now broaden its mandate to cover similar events
in recent, and not-so-recent history, like the OKC bombing, the 1993 WTC bombing, and the assassinations of
high profile figures in the 1960s, in order to educate people new to the issues raised in such dramatic
fashion on 9/11.
Explosives Found in World
Trade Center Dust. Backers of the official account of 9/11, including NIST officials, have
dismissed evidence that aluminothermics were used to destroy the World Trade Center skyscrapers, claiming
that thermite's slow reaction rate makes it an unsuitable tool for demolishing buildings. Despite
repeated requests by scientists and researchers to address the potential role of advanced aluminothermic
composites with high explosive power, officials have refused to acknowledge such materials.
Four Integrity Tests for President Obama.
The nationwide 9/11 truth movement is alive and well, because the vast majority of Americans still have many
doubts about the official stories of what happened on 9/11, especially when it comes to the sudden collapse of
three World Trade Center buildings, one of which was not even hit by an airplane. Countless scientists,
engineers and architects have seriously examined mountains of data and evidence and come to the disheartening
conclusion that something besides the official story must explain what happened.

contributed to its demise. But more importantly WTC 7, like the Murrah building, housed
high-level government offices including the FBI, CIA and the Secret Service. WTC 7 was
also the storage facility for millions of files pertaining to active cases involving international
drug dealing, organized crime, terrorism and money laundering.

Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings
Collapse? In this paper, I call for a serious investigation of the hypothesis that WTC 7 and
the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fires, but through the use of pre-positioned
cutter-charges. I consider the official FEMA, NIST, and 9-11 Commission reports that fires plus impact
damage alone caused complete collapses of all three buildings. And I present evidence for the
controlled-demolition hypothesis, which is suggested by the available data, testable and falsifiable,
and yet has not been analyzed in any of the reports funded by the US government.

The Top 40 Reasons to Doubt the
Official Story of September 11, 2001..
The Investigation of Building 7's Collapse: What
did the government do to investigate the unprecedented collapse of a steel frame building from fires? It
gave FEMA the sole discretion to investigate the collapse, even though FEMA is not an investigative agency.
Building 7. was the third skyscraper to be reduced to rubble
on September 11, 2001. According to the government, fires, primarily, leveled this building, but
fires have never before or since destroyed a steel skyscraper. The team that investigated the collapse
were kept away from the crime scene. By the time they published their inconclusive report in
May, 2002, the evidence had been destroyed.
Five Years After and We Still Don't Know.
There appears to be a very large energy deficit in the official explanation of the collapse of the two WTC
towers, and no explanation for the collapse of WTC 7.
Building 7 Collapse: At
5:22 p.m. on September 11th, 2001, the 47 story building number 7 of the World Trade
Center Plaza came down in slightly over 8 seconds. The building had not been hit by any
plane, nor sustained any significant damage from the "collapse" of the Twin Towers seven hours earlier,
nor was there any major fire in the building at the time. The video clearly show that it was
brought down as result of a synchronized demolition.
WTC 7: Building 7 was the third skyscraper to
collapse into rubble on September 11, 2001. According to the government, small fires leveled
this building, but fires have never before or since destroyed a steel skyscraper.
Indications add up to government
conspiracy. The collapse of steel-frame buildings — such as the World Trade Center
Towers — due to fire is unprecedented. The collapse of Building 7, which was not hit by
a plane, is especially inexplicable. Its collapse late in the afternoon of Sept. 11 exhibited 10
specific features of a controlled demolition, as did the collapse of the Twin Towers. More important,
numerous eyewitnesses attest to hearing multiple explosions at the time. And, Steven Jones, a professor
at Brigham Young University, discovered Thermate, an incendiary compound, in two molten steel samples taken
from the site.
BYU Professor on Paid Leave for 9-11
Theory. Brigham Young University administrators are trying to find out the extent of one
professor's involvement in blaming the September 11th terrorist attacks on the government. According
to a copyrighted Deseret Morning News article, Dr. Steven Jones is on paid leave for suggesting the
government is responsible for the destruction of the World Trade Center.
On the other hand...
The CIA couldn't
have organised this. Five years after the attack on the World Trade Centre, a group of 75
American academics is claiming that the truth about 9/11 has been covered up. The leader of the
group — Steven E. Jones, a physics professor at a university in Utah — has
studied debris from the disaster and concluded that explosives were used to bring down the towers.
Did the Twin Towers Collapse on Demand? When
considering the possibility that the Twin Towers were brought down by explosives there is an interesting
variation which is worth considering: What if the Twin Towers were designed — or
re-engineered — so that they could be destroyed in a controlled demolition if circumstances
Other WTC Building Collapses: WTC 6
and WTC 7. WTC 7, although damaged slightly by falling rubble, stood for about six
hours on September 11th, then around 5 p.m. it suddenly fell. No official explanation for this has
ever been given. This building was completely destroyed, and came down in the manner of a controlled
demolition. … [I]t is the manner in which WTC 7 was destroyed that constitutes one of the proofs that
9/11 was an inside job. Videos of its destruction clearly show that it came down exactly in the manner
of a controlled demolition. This cannot have been the work of 19 Arab hijackers, nor of Osama bin Laden
supervising events from his cave in Afghanistan. The destruction of WTC 7 was brought about by
demolition experts — American demolition experts.
The Mysterious Leveling of
Building 7. At 5:20 PM on 9/11/01 the only building with a World Trade Center address that stood
on a different block from the rest of the complex, 47-story steel-framed 7 World Trade Center, underwent a
sudden total collapse. Officials and all government reports published since the attack that mention
the building blame its collapse on a combination of structural damage and subsequent fires. However,
the available evidence on the condition of Building 7 prior to its collapse fails to document more than
superficial structural damage and small isolated fires.
Silverstein, FDNY Razed WTC 7.
Those who argue that the towers were vulnerable in their top-heaviness and verticality cannot then explain the
collapse due to fire of WTC 7, a broad-based, 47-story steel-framed building. … In addition,
WTC 7 suffered a strangely thorough and complete collapse, leaving only a leveled lot where it
once stood. … There [are] also disturbing correlations between the collapse of WTC 7 and the
bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City. … WTC 7 was also the storage facility for
millions of files pertaining to active cases involving international drug dealing, organized crime,
terrorism and money laundering.

about 9/11. What about the third tower — the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or

destruction of all three buildings. They have not yet reported on WTC 7.
adds fuel to 9/11 conspiracy theories. The investigation into the "mysterious" collapse of the
third tower of the World Trade Centre will re-examine questions which an official inquiry was designed to
answer. The 47-storey tower collapsed seven hours after the Twin Towers and has become the subject of
heated speculation and a host of conspiracy theories which suggest it was brought down by a controlled

Says Fire, Not Explosion, Felled 7 W.T.C.. The collapse of 7 World Trade Center — home
at the time to branch offices of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service and the Giuliani
administration's emergency operations center — is cited in hundreds of Web sites and books
as perhaps the most compelling evidence that an insider secretly planted explosives, intentionally
destroying the tower.
Fires took down building next to twin towers. The building has been the subject of a wide range
of conspiracy theories for the last seven years, partly because the collapse occurred about seven hours after
the twin towers came down. That fueled suspicion that someone intentionally blew up the building in a
controlled demolition. Critics like Mike Berger of the group 9/11 Truth said he wasn't buying the
government's explanation. "Their explanation simply isn't sufficient. We're being lied to," he
said, arguing that there is other evidence suggesting explosives were used on the building.
Improbable Collapse: On September 11, 2001
the World Trade Center Twin Towers disintegrated in a manner that scientists say resembled deliberately
calculated implosions. The facts open for discussion include: at 5:20 p.m. that same day
another building, the 47 story WTC 7, completely collapsed within 70 feet of its footprint
in 6.6 seconds. These three buildings became the first such structures to ever suffer complete
collapse due to fire and damage.

9/11 Cover-up: (a.) Airplane black boxes were found at Ground Zero, according to two first
responders and an unnamed NTSB official, but they were "disappeared" and their existence is denied in

(like the tapes recorded by air traffic controllers who handled the New York flights).
(c.) Whistleblowers (like Sibel Edmonds and Anthony Shaffer) were intimidated, gagged and
sanctioned, sending a clear signal to others who might be thinking about speaking out.
WTC 7 Collapse investigated by
Popular Mechanics. Many conspiracy theorists point to FEMA's preliminary report, which said there was
relatively light damage to WTC 7 prior to its collapse. With the benefit of more time and resources, NIST
researchers now support the working hypothesis that WTC 7 was far more compromised by falling debris than the
FEMA report indicated.

fall was part of a government plot.

responded by defending his comments, and claimed that they were "not connected with my UN role." But today

"There is enough evidence across the board here to suggest there were more hands in the pot to stir it up
than what meets the eye," said Andrew Moulden, a medical doctor and candidate for the Canadian Action Party
in the Ontario riding of Nipissing-Timiskaming, when asked about 9/11 by the National Post. "There are
a lot of things that scream foul," he said. "There are too many holes and gaps in the middle and too
many inconsistencies. They needed a Pearl Harbor and it happened."
Unanswered questions of
September 11: The killing of nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001, is not
a "cold case." But it also is not a closed case, and despite the huge body of evidence collected,

soil. ... [It] asks, for instance, why NORAD fighter jets weren't scrambled on that fateful
morning. ... The 9/11 Commission Report's explanation, which contradicts four previous explanations by federal
officials on this matter (all four of which also contradict each other), is fraught with discrepancies, errors,
omissions, and contradictions.

9/11 Widows Keep on Asking the Tough
Questions. The widows had high hopes for the 9/11 Commission Report, but when it was published
in July of 2004 they were bitterly disappointed. ... "It was a pathetic excuse of a report," says
Lorie Van Auken, whose husband Kenneth was killed in WTC I. "Seventy percent of our questions went
unanswered. ... Anyone who appeared for questioning, from Rudy Guliani to George Tenet, was handled with kid
gloves and lauded with accolades. The Commissioners would say, 'You're fabulous, you did a fantastic job
on 9/11,' and they would run out the clock. We couldn't understand what the point was in having a
hearing if no substantive questions were being asked or answered."

These documents are documentary proof of a very suspicious long-term relationship between former high-level
officials in the federal aviation agencies and an extremely dodgy Israeli company specializing in accessing
aircraft computer systems — while in flight. One needs to remember that the Vigilant Guardian
drill that was being run on 9-11 involved computer simulations and false "injects" on the radar monitors of
the air traffic controllers at NEADS, NORAD, and the FAA. When 9-11 happened, the air traffic monitors
were thoroughly confused if the attacks were real — or part of the game.

victims' families win multibillion-dollar settlement against Iran. Loved ones of 9/11 victims won a
multibillion-dollar judgement against Iran for allegedly aiding in the 2001 terror attacks, court papers revealed.
Manhattan federal judge George Daniels signed off on a pro forma default order Monday against "the Islamic Republic of Iran,
the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran" after they failed to respond to
the suit over the infamous hijackings. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of relatives of some 1,008 victims, set Iranian
payouts of $12.5 million per spouse of each victim, $8.5 million per parent, $8.5 million per child and
$4.25 million per sibling.
Judge Rules Iran Must Pay $6 Billion to 9/11 Victims. An American judge ruled on Tuesday that Iran must pay $6 billion to victims
or those affected by the 9/11 terror attacks. Judge George B. Daniels of the Southern District Court of New York ruled that "the Islamic
Republic of Iran, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and The Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran liable for the deaths of more than
1,000 people as a result of the September 11 attacks." Court filings state that the payout equates to "$12,500,000 per spouse, $8,500,000
per parent, $8,500,000 per child, and $4,250,000 per sibling" to the families and estates of the deceased. The ruling also includes an annual
4.1 percent interest rate from the year the attacks took place.
Attack, Another U.S.-Saudi Cover-Up? [In] the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, when following a private meeting on
Sept. 13 between President George W. Bush and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi ambassador to Washington, "something strange began to
happen," as former Florida Sen. Bob Graham writes in his 2004 book "Intelligence Matters." (As Senate Intelligence committee chairman,
Graham co-chaired the Congressional Joint Inquiry into 9/11.) "Although the FAA had ordered all private flights grounded, a number of planes
began flying to collect Saudi nationals from various parts of the United States." Within a week, Graham continues, 140 Saudis,
including members of the bin Laden family, had been flown out of the country without ever having to answer a single question about anything.
What's almost worse is that for nearly three years, as Graham reports, "the White House and other agencies insisted that these flights never took
The Road to
Armageddon: There will always be Americans who will believe whatever the government tells them
no matter how many times they know the government has lied to them. ... [M]ore than half of the U.S.
population still believes the fantastic story that the government has told them about 9/11, a Muslim
conspiracy that outwitted the entire Western world. Moreover, it doesn't matter to these Americans how
often the government changes its story. For example, Americans first heard of Osama bin Laden because
the Bush regime pinned the 9/11 attacks on him. Over the years video after video was served up to the
gullible American public of bin Laden's pronouncements. Experts dismissed the videos as fakes, but
Americans remained their gullible selves.

ACLJ Letter to
the National Education Association: The purpose of this letter is to
formally object to your recommendations to parents and teachers regarding the anniversary
of the terrorist attacks of one year ago included on your "Remember September 11th"
website. In particular, we take issue with your advice for parents and
teachers: "Do not suggest any group is responsible." The problem with this
advice is that there is a group responsible, and we know who that group is - an
organization of radical Islamic terrorists called al-Qaeda. By advising
teachers not to suggest that any group is responsible, you both shortchange our children's
education and risk undermining our nation's effort to eradicate terrorists and prevent
further terrorist attacks.

to Really Secure the Homeland: Other than liberating Afghanistan

interpretation of Islam, which extols faith, mindless obedience, sacrifice to state and God,
In Washington, Hindsight is 20/400:
In this context, the current media fetish over "What did Bush know and when did he know it?" back on 9/11
shows neither a left-wing nor a right-wing bias. Instead, it merely dramatizes the existence of an
empty-headed media culture in which our intellectuals and leaders have simply run out of ideas.
Thinking The Unthinkable

... Seems to have slipped out of neutral.
Search Of The Red Cross' $500 Million In Haiti Relief. When a devastating earthquake leveled Haiti in
2010, millions of people donated to the American Red Cross. The charity raised almost half a billion dollars.
It was one of its most successful fundraising efforts ever. The American Red Cross vowed to help Haitians rebuild,
but after five years the Red Cross' legacy in Haiti is not new roads, or schools, or hundreds of new homes. It's
difficult to know where all the money went.
response of the Red Cross has been lamentable'. One month ago, the massively powerful winds, rain, and floodwaters of
Superstorm Sandy devastated much of New York and New Jersey, killing 60 in the region and causing more than $62 billion in
damage. In the aftermath of the storm, relief groups offered their aid, but many have blasted the Red Cross for being absent
in the areas hit hardest by the storm.
Cross spent $181,000 to put up Sandy relief workers in Manhattan's upscale Soho Grand hotel. Representatives from
American Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) said that the two agencies booked a total of 48 rooms in
the upscale SoHo Grand to house some of the relief workers at a discounted nightly rate of $310 a room.
Red Cross Fined $9.6 Million for Unsafe Blood Collection. The American Red Cross, the largest
supplier of donated blood in the U.S., was fined $9.6 million after federal inspectors found hundreds of
blood safety violations at 16 of the organization's 36 blood collection centers nationwide. In
a 32-page letter to the Washington-based organization, Food and Drug Administration officials describe an
all-encompassing lack of controls to ensure the safety of the nation's blood supply.

The neutral politics of the Red Cross: Somewhere along the
way, the Red Cross came out of the field to sit at the table and began taking on the role of rhetoric, seeming no longer content with
its long-held status as trusted and neutral guardian of the Geneva conventions around the world. Indeed, in its self-styled role
as a critic of the United States, the Red Cross is giving plenty of competition to the anti-American United Nations. Its new role
is surely most welcome among the anti-war contingent.
Red Cross demands Mid-East action.
The International Committee of the Red Cross has called for immediate political action to contain the "deep
crisis" in the West Bank and Gaza. The statement was an unusual departure from its normally non-political
stance. The ICRC said the measures imposed by Israel had denied the Palestinian population the right to
live a normal and dignified life.
Red Cross says global warming
caused record disasters in 2007. Global warming caused a record number of natural disasters
across the world in 2007, up nearly 20 percent from a year earlier, the International Federation of the
Red Cross said on Thursday [12/13/2007]. "As of 10 October 2007, the Federation had already recorded
410 disasters, 56 percent of which were weather-related, which is consistent with the trend of rising
numbers of climate change-related disasters," the IFRC said in its "World Disasters Report".
Red Cross says changing
climate worsens disasters. Climate change is making it harder for many people to access clean
water and food, and widening the spread of malaria and dengue fever, the world's largest humanitarian aid
agency said on Monday [1/21/2008]. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
(IFRC) is asking donors for $292 million per year for 2008 and 2009 to help communities steel themselves
for the threats of global warming.
The International Red Cross' War
Against Israel. For nearly four decades, many in the international community have insisted that Jews are
forbidden to live in Judea, Samaria, Gaza (Yesha), "eastern Jerusalem," and the Golan — areas conquered by Israel
in 1967. Leading this fight was and is a private Swiss organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross
(ICRC). The ICRC was the first international organization to charge that "the presence of Israeli settlements in the
occupied territories is contrary to the Geneva Convention," and therefore "unlawful."
lawmaker back from Haiti says Red Cross nowhere to be found. Donors should think twice before
giving money to the Red Cross for earthquake relief in Haiti, a Democratic lawmaker said. Rep. Debbie
Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who traveled to Haiti with Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Rep. Sheila Jackson
Lee (D-Texas) earlier this week, said Thursday [4/8/2010] the internationally renowned relief group was
nowhere to be found in Haiti.
Red Cross defends

Tsunami Relief: Reconsider the Red
Cross. Laurie Morrow, hostess of a conservative talk radio show in Vermont, cautions
against giving your money to Red Cross. Part of her discontent is with Red Cross's behavior
following 9/11. In November of 2001, "Red Cross officials decided, without the knowledge or
consent of most of the donors, that better use of this money could be made than distributing it among
the victims. Acting as if the $564 million were the Red Cross's money rather than donors' money
entrusted to them for distribution, the officials decided to spend the money as they saw fit, regardless
of the donors' intentions. They planned to distribute only about 1/3 of the Fund to the
victims of September 11th. $264 million of the $564 million would be set
aside for vaguely defined "long-term effects of the disaster."
