Hello everyone

Except for this introduction, this compilation below is the same I sent
last night to my Media list (4,385 mainstream journalists and news media
from around the world). Most of this compilation deals with some amazing
evidence that there is a huge cover up still going on about 9-11 and those
who masterminded it. I know most media shy away from covering this topic
but with the attempt in the U.S. Senate to "investigate" this tragedy, I
think it is worth another shot...

Just as for the Kennedy assassination whose true culprits were never
brought to face justice, it is unlikely that the powerful international
elite band of criminals who are now trying their best to establish their
global military hegemony through the successive U.S. governments will ever
face trial for their ongoing murderous deeds.

This is no time to be in a state of mass denial about what is really going
on...

Better to be in a state of mass harmonization with the emerging New Era
that will soon help sweep the world clean of the dark influence of some
terribly lost souls and bring Peace on Earth.

"You know, you cannot exercise your powers to the point of humiliation for
others. That is what the Western world -- not only the Americans, the
Western world -- has to realize. Because they (the have-nots) are human
beings too. There are long-term consequences if you don't look hard at the
reality in 10 or 20 (or) 30 years from now. And I do think the Western
world is getting too rich in relation to the poor world and necessarily,
you know, we're looked upon as being arrogant, self-satisfied greedy and
with no limits. And Sept. 11 is an occasion for me to realize it even
more."

Open Letter To World Trade Center Investigators

By Christopher Bollyn

American Free Press

8-24-2

The evidence is now compelling - the twin towers were BLOWN off their feet.
The plane crashes and fires were but secondary distractions to the main
event.

The towers were literally "blasted" off their footings at the beginning,
and during the first phase, of their respective collapses.

The fact that the towers were seen "jumping" immediately before the
collapse is documented on film by a helicopter camera that witnessed that
event.

Massive explosions deep in the basements of the WTC towers clearly lifted -
and dropped - the massive structures from their bases 70 feet below the
surface.
The basement explosions that detached the central support columns from the
bed rock, and dropped the towers, left extremely hot pools of molten steel
(1535+ degrees Celsius), which persisted for days in the lowest basements
(-7 level), and clear seismic tracks - that have yet to be explained.

However, the seismic evidence is quite clear: There were massive (and
unexplained) releases of energy causing 2.1 and 2.3 magnitude earthquakes
before ANY debris even hit the ground.

Furthermore, seismologists agree that the falling rubble would only cause
minimal seismic disturbances, which it what the seismic record clearly
shows it did. (e.g. Columbia University's Arthur Lerner-Lam's reports)

The largest blasts occurred during the first 5 seconds of the collapses -
before any significant amount of debris even hit the ground.

As a matter of fact the impact of the "rubble" (we can no longer speak of
large pieces) caused only relatively minor seismic shock wave signatures
compared to what ROCKED the EARTH (2.1 and 2.3 earthquakes) at the towers'
base from the beginning of the collapse until about 5 seconds into the 8
and 10 second collapses.

The massive seismic wave "spike", which occurred at about 4-5 seconds into
the 8-second collapse of the North Tower was MANY times larger than the
waves that marked the moment of impact when the "rubble" finally hit the
ground.

DROP THE COVER-UP

Investigators: The cat is out of the bag. The game is up.

The evidence is now overwhelming and compelling. Scientists who continue to
obfuscate and refuse to investigate the clear evidence of explosions in the
towers will undoubtedly be considered by honest investigators, the public,
and history, to be part of the cover-up. The steel evidence MUST be tested
for signs of "twinning", the tracks left in steel of exposure to
high-energy explosions. All steel from the basements must be tested for
such twinning as well as radioactivity.

I, for one, would not want to be in the position of being involved in the
criminal cover-up of this horrendous mass murder.

Those investigators who participate in the cover-up, whether actively or
passively, whether by action or inaction, should expect to find themselves
branded as quislings, of both their nation and their science.

The only sure path is to pursue the truth, wherever it may lead.

New Seismic Data Refutes Official WTC Explanation
By Christopher Bollyn
Exclusive to American Free Press
9-5-2

Two unexplained "spikes" in the seismic record from Sept. 11 indicate huge
bursts of energy shook the ground beneath the World Trade Center's twin
towers immediately prior to the collapse. American Free Press has learned
of pools of "molten steel" found at the base of the collapsed twin towers
weeks after the collapse. Although the energy source for these incredibly
hot areas has yet to be explained, New York seismometers recorded huge
bursts of energy, which caused unexplained seismic "spikes" at the
beginning of each collapse.

These spikes suggest that massive underground explosions may have literally
knocked the towers off their foundations, causing them to collapse.

In the basements of the collapsed towers, where the 47 central support
columns connected with the bedrock, hot spots of "literally molten steel"
were discovered more than a month after the collapse. Such persistent and
intense residual heat, 70 feet below the surface, in an oxygen starved
environment, could explain how these crucial structural supports failed.

Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction of Flushing, N.Y., told AFP
that he saw pools of "literally molten steel" at the World Trade Center.

Tully was contracted after the Sept. 11 tragedy to remove the debris from
the site.

Tully called Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI)
of Phoenix, Md., for consultation about removing the debris. CDI calls
itself "the innovator and global leader in the controlled demolition and
implosion of structures."

Loizeaux, who cleaned up the bombed Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in
Oklahoma City, arrived at the WTC site two days later and wrote the
clean-up plan for the entire operation.

AFP asked Loizeaux about the report of molten steel on the site.

"Yes," he said, "hot spots of molten steel in the basements."

These incredibly hot areas were found "at the bottoms of the elevator
shafts of the main towers, down seven [basement] levels," Loizeaux said.

The molten steel was found "three, four, and five weeks later, when the
rubble was being removed," Loizeaux said. He said molten steel was also
found at 7 WTC, which collapsed mysteriously in the late afternoon.

Construction steel has an extremely high melting point of about 2,800
degrees Fahrenheit.

Asked what could have caused such extreme heat, Tully said, "Think of the
jet fuel."

Loizeaux told AFP that the steel-melting fires were fueled by "paper,
carpet and other combustibles packed down the elevator shafts by the tower
floors as they 'pancaked' into the basement."

However, some independent investigators dispute this claim, saying
kerosene-based jet fuel, paper, or the other combustibles normally found in
the towers, cannot generate the heat required to melt steel, especially in
an oxygen-poor environment like a deep basement.

Eric Hufschmid, author of a book about the WTC collapse, Painful
Questions,* told AFP that due to the lack of oxygen, paper and other
combustibles packed down at the bottom of elevator shafts would probably be
"a smoky smoldering pile."

Experts disagree that jet-fuel or paper could generate such heat.

This is impossible, they say, because the maximum temperature that can be
reached by hydrocarbons like jet-fuel burning in air is 1,520 degrees F.
Because the WTC fires were fuel rich, as evidenced by the thick black
smoke, it is argued that they did not reach this upper limit.

The hottest spots at the surface of the rubble, where abundant oxygen was
available, were much cooler than the molten steel found in the basements.

Five days after the collapse, on Sept. 16, the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration (NASA) used an Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging
Spectrometer (AVIRIS) to locate and measure the site's hot spots.

Dozens of hot spots were mapped, the hottest being in the east corner of
the South Tower where a temperature of 1,377 degrees F was recorded.

This is, however, less than half as hot at the molten steel in the basement.

The foundations of the twin towers were 70 feet deep. At that level, 47
huge box columns, connected to the bedrock, supported the entire gravity
load of the structures. The steel walls of these lower box columns were
four inches thick.

Videos of the North Tower collapse show its communication mast falling
first, indicating that the central support columns must have failed at the
very beginning of the collapse. Loizeaux told AFP, "Everything went
simultaneously."

"At 10:29 the entire top section of the North Tower had been severed from
the base and began falling down," Hufschmid writes. "If the first event was
the falling of a floor, how did that progress to the severing of hundreds
of columns?"

Asked if the vertical support columns gave way before the connections
between the floors and the columns, Ron Hamburger, a structural engineer
with the FEMA assessment team said, "That's the $64,000 question."

Loizeaux said, "If I were to bring the towers down, I would put explosives
in the basement to get the weight of the building to help collapse the
structure."

SEISMIC 'SPIKES'

Seismographs at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in
Palisades, N.Y., 21 miles north of the WTC, recorded strange seismic
activity on Sept. 11 that has still not been explained.

While the aircraft crashes caused minimal earth shaking, significant
earthquakes with unusual spikes occurred at the beginning of each collapse.

The Palisades seismic data recorded a 2.1 magnitude earthquake during the
10-second collapse of the South Tower at 9:59:04 and a 2.3 quake during the
8-second collapse of the North Tower at 10:28:31.

However, the Palisades seismic record shows that-as the collapses began-a
huge seismic "spike" marked the moment the greatest energy went into the
ground. The strongest jolts were all registered at the beginning of the
collapses, well before the falling debris struck the Earth.

These unexplained "spikes" in the seismic data lend credence to the theory
that massive explosions at the base of the towers caused the collapses.

A "sharp spike of short duration" is how seismologist Thorne Lay of
University of California at Santa Cruz told AFP an underground nuclear
explosion appears on a seismograph.

The two unexplained spikes are more than 20 times the amplitude of the
other seismic waves associated with the collapses and occurred in the
East-West seismic recording as the buildings began to fall.

Experts cannot explain why the seismic waves peaked before the towers
actually hit the ground.

Asked about these spikes, seismologist Arthur Lerner-Lam, director of
Columbia University's Center for Hazards and Risk Research told AFP, "This
is an element of current research and discussion. It is still being
investigated."

Lerner-Lam told AFP that a 10-fold increase in wave amplitude indicates a
100-fold increase in energy released. These "short-period surface waves,"
reflect "the interaction between the ground and the building foundation,"
according to a report from Columbia Earth Institute.

"The seismic effects of the collapses are comparable to the explosions at a
gasoline tank farm near Newark on Jan. 7, 1983," the Palisades Seismology
Group reported on Sept. 14, 2001.

One of the seismologists, Won-Young Kim, told AFP that the Palisades
seismographs register daily underground explosions from a quarry 20 miles
away.

These blasts are caused by 80,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate and cause
local earthquakes between Magnitude 1 and 2. Kim said the 1993 truck-bomb
at the WTC did not register on the seismographs because it was "not
coupled" to the ground.

"Only a small fraction of the energy from the collapsing towers was
converted into ground motion," Lerner-Lam said. "The ground shaking that
resulted from the collapse of the towers was extremely small."

Last November, Lerner-Lam said: "During the collapse, most of the energy of
the falling debris was absorbed by the towers and the neighboring
structures, converting them into rubble and dust or causing other
damage-but not causing significant ground shaking."

Evidently, the energy source that shook the ground beneath the towers was
many times more powerful than the total potential energy released by the
falling mass of the towers. The question is: What was that energy source?

The War on Freedom

Foreword: a Synopsis

In The War on Freedom, brilliant British scholar Nafeez M. Ahmed writes
with cool, factual understatement a story that begs comprehension:
compelling evidence that the U.S. government instigates terrorism as the
perfect pretext to justify an aggressive foreign policy-up to and including
the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Astonishing as his thesis may seem, the thoughtful reader will find that it
explains many obvious puzzles:

- How could our intelligence services fail to thwart such an ambitious
project as 9/11?

- Why did our government immediately point the finger at Bin Laden, yet
refuse to release the evidence? Were they loath to reveal their complicity,
if they had been monitoring the 'Boeing Bombing' plot all along, and let it
happen?

- Why did the White House ram through legal measures immediately after the
attacks that essentially repeal the Bill of Rights and the Freedom of
Information Act?

Ahmed's extensive research also brings to light some less well-known
puzzles. Isn't it strange that:

- An investment from the bin Laden family started George Bush Jr. in
business, and the war in Afghanistan will make the Bush family richer. -The
activities of a former U.S. Army Sergeant who trained Al-Qaeda and
participated in the Embassy bombings suggest that the U.S. continues to
protect bin Laden as a strategic asset.

- Members of Al-Qaeda were trained in terrorism by the CIA in the USA, and
the hijackers themselves were trained by the U.S. military.

- The U.S. financially supported the Pakistani secret services, which
funded presumed hijacker Mohammed Atta.

- A crescendo of warnings from intelligence services around the world in
early September were selectively ignored, while high-level orders were
issued to block investigations of suspected terrorists linked to Bin Laden.

- Three FBI officers testified that they had known the names of the
hijackers and the date of the planned attack weeks before it happened, but
were muzzled by superiors under threat of prosecution; their counsel was
the U.S. Congress' chief prosecutor in the Clinton impeachment case.

- Standard operating procedure is for Air Force fighters to intercept
hijacked planes immediately, but this was not done until it was all over on
September 11, an hour and a half after the World Trade Center was hit.

- Intelligence experts deride the possibility that Bin Laden could have
carried out such sophisticated, precise attacks without the support of a
state-run intelligence organization.

Bin Laden got away, and the war on him remains an open-ended campaign,
justifying any presidential policy, from attacking Iraq to plundering
Social Security.

Loyal, law-abiding American readers may find all this too difficult to
believe. We are taught certain civic values, and we believe our
democratically elected government upholds them. Yet, even General Dwight D.
Eisenhower warned us against the military-industrial complex...

How and why could the American presidency in effect wreak terror on its own
citizens? The WTC attack, widely considered epoch-making, was certainly an
immense opener for the war and oil lobbies, and for the projection of naked
power. Ahmed unveils the linkages between the Bush, Cheney, Saudi, and
Iraqi oil fortunes, as well as the shared anti-Soviet geopolitics of the
CIA and the Islamic mujahideen in Central Asia.

How much of U.S. history and foreign policy has been made by manufacturing
a pretext to attack a weaker enemy? Ahmed answers the question here in
reference to the Afghan war, as he has earlier in a series of brilliant
articles on U.S. intervention in Latin America and other regions (see
http://nafeez.mediamonitors.net.)

I am not an historian by trade, but I remember not only the Alamo, but the
Maine, which we found out 100 years later the Spanish didn't blow up; our
intercession in WWI, from which Europe never recovered; and how FDR invited
the Japanese to demolish our navy at Pearl Harbor. Isn't it time to
investigate this subversive government within a government, the war party
with its ruthless secret services?

People around the world are saying they like America and Americans- it's
our government they can't stand. Yet it is our civic responsibility to keep
an eye on it, and not hide our heads in the sand of so-called patriotism.
God willing, Ahmed's call for an investigation will be heard and the
evidence he has so diligently gathered will be examined. If his thesis is
proved right, then the September 11 attacks will truly be epoch-making for
freedom and democracy.

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THIS BOOK

(...) In the aftermath of 11th September, the Bush administration embarked
on a devastating bombing campaign in Afghanistan, killing up to 5,000
Afghan civilians-almost double the number of civilians killed in the World
Trade Center and Pentagon attacks. This massive bombardment of the country
resulted in the destruction of the Taliban regime, making way for the
installation of a new, interim government.

The new regime effectively constituted a return to the pre-Taliban era,
when Northern Alliance factions ruled most of Afghanistan, brutalising and
repressing the civilian population in the same manner as the Taliban. Now,
however, Northern Alliance warlords have been bound by U.S.-UN brokered
agreements designed to ensure the minimisation of civil war breaking out
between rival warlords, the idea being to create the regional stability
essential to lending an appropriate degree of security for proposed
pipelines to Caspian oil and gas. The rights and wishes of the Afghan
people, meanwhile, have been ignored.

Subsequently, on the pretext of entering into a new "war on terror," the
Bush administration successfully secured unlimited war powers, free from
Congressional accountability. This has established an open-ended
militarisation of foreign policy in which any country can be targeted at
will on the pretext of harbouring terrorists.

In the U.S., this has been accompanied by unprecedented curbs on civil
liberties and basic human rights, the crushing of domestic dissent, and the
criminalisation of legitimate protest. Many authoritative commentators have
described these domestic measures as moves toward the establishment of an
American police state. The combination of militarisation abroad and
repression at home has granted the Bush administration a free hand to
pursue its strategic and economic interests, consolidating a permanent
military presence in Afghanistan and Central Asia, and moving swiftly to
establish lucrative pipeline deals to secure access to regional resources
and energy deposits. It has allowed the Bush administration to challenge
its principal rivals-Europe, China and Russia-in the pursuit of control of
Central Asia, with the final objective of consolidating U.S. hegemony over
the entirety of Eurasia, thus moving toward the establishment of unrivalled
global hegemony.

Prior to 11th September, all of this was inconceivable. The tragic
catastrophe of 11th September, which was apparently permitted to occur by
the Bush administration-and further effectively pushed forward by the
administration through its ongoing support of key allies in Saudi Arabia
and Pakistan who support bin Laden and Al-Qaeda-allowed the U.S. to expand,
consolidate and empower its hegemony, both at home and abroad, to an
unprecedented level.

In the epilogue, John Leonard gives a historical perspective on the Federal
executive's repeated, clandestine use of staged provocations to get America
into foreign wars, and presents published evidence pointing to the
involvement of Mossad, Israeli military intelligence, in September 11.

Iraq: "Merely a first step?"

By Carla Binion

Sep 11, 2002

The Boston Globe reports that the Bush administration war hawks have for
many years planned to "reshape" the Middle East. Iraq is "merely a first
step." "After an ouster of Hussein," according to the Globe, "the United
States will have more leverage to act against Syria and Iran." As the Globe
article makes clear, oil and domination of the region are primary concerns,
not any "threat" from Saddam Hussein. Some of the hawks claim they want to
create "democracy" in the region, but they have lied about that concern in
the past. According to the Globe article, "Jessica T. Mathews, president of
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington policy group, said
that installing a democracy in Iraq, much less the rest of the Middle East
would be extraordinarily difficult, if not out of the question. She
contended that change in Iraq is more akin to building a wall brick by
brick and will require the support of allies." Matthews said, ''The
argument we would be starting a democratic wave in Iraq is pure blowing
smoke....You have 22 Arab governments and not one has made any progress
toward democracy, not one." Here is what this information means:

* The Bush administration is lying to the American people, to Congress, to
the UN and to the rest of the world about its real motives for attacking
Iraq.

* The real intention of the Bush administration hawks is to keep this
country at war for many years, attacking first Iraq and then a number of
other nations - primarily for domination of the region and control of the
region's oil.

* The Bush war hawks have no concern for the tens of thousands or hundreds
of thousands of human lives these wars will cost. They don't care that many
American soldiers will die for oil, and they don't mind lying to those
soldiers in order to recruit them.

* The Bush administration will squander billions of dollars on their
misbegotten wars - money that could instead be spent on a national health
care system or other human needs.

* The war hawks' plans amount to premeditated, cold-blooded murder of many
thousands of innocent Iraqis and American soldiers, and possibly the
eventual murder of innocent Syrians, Iranians and others.

* The Bush hawks' plans will likely cause large numbers of potential
terrorists to retaliate and possibly harm innocent Americans.

* The world should realize this: If the Bush war hawks go ahead with their
plans to attack Iraq and other nations for the reasons detailed in the
Boston Globe article, the Bush administration will be committing acts of
terrorism every bit as evil and of greater proportions than the terrorist
acts committed on September 11.

Contact members of Congress. Protest. Don't let this be done in your name.
