Peter Dale Scott article about 9/11, the JFK Assassination, and OK City Bombing

In the article below entitled "Systemic Destabilization as 'A Strategy of Tension': 9/11, the JFK Assassination, and the Oklahoma City Bombing," Peter Dale Scott connects the dots between the JFK assassination, the Oklahoma City Bombing and 9/11.  He compares these "deep state" events to the CIA's and NATO's campaign of terror carried out in Europe during the Cold War under Operation Gladio.  He shows how after each of these attacks, civil liberties were eroded under legislation that has advanced the furtherance of a police state here at home. 

With the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination coming up next year, this is worth reading to put 9/11 in context with other deep state events.

Fw: New York Times CIA Connection Revealed

The story below from Infowars.com shows the collusion that goes on between members of the mainstream media and the CIA.  The New York Times over the past several months has been devoting  large amounts of coverage to the civil war in Syria.  Not surprisingly, the paper has slanted their stories on behalf of the CIA backed rebels. 

Operation Mockingbird refers to a CIA project began after World War II to recruit and "influence" members of the news media, both print and broadcast.  One of the principle founders of Operation Mockingbird was the late Frank Wisner, Sr.   Frank Wisner famously referred to the CIA as a "Mighty Wurlitzer" that could play any tune.  Keep that in mind the next time a left gatekeeper tells you "9/11 is a distraction."

This particular incident revolves around a story dealing with the upcoming movie "Zero Dark Thirty," concerning the raid on the alleged bin Laden compound.  The film, which was produced in conjunction with the U.S. military and CIA, is scheduled for release in December.  ~ B.B. 

Operation Mockingbird 2012: NYT Writer Leaked Story Critical of Obama to CIA

Asked spooks to delete his emails after reading them; Paper claims correspondence was 'mistake'

Emails obtained by advocacy group Judicial Watch have exposed the fact that a senior New York Times employee, who covers national security for the newspaper, provided the CIA with advanced copies of an article another writer was preparing that was somewhat critical of the White House over the upcoming Hollywood film about the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The reporter, Mark Mazzetti, forwarded an advance copy of a Maureen Dowd column to a CIA spokesperson a full two days before it was set to be published. The article, published August 7th 2011, discussed the upcoming Kathryn Bigelow-Mark Boal film "Zero Dark Thirty", and criticized the Obama administration for having "outsourced the job of manning up the president's image to Hollywood."

Mazzetti's emails (below) show that he sent the piece to the CIA's Marie Harf, on August 5th 2011, writing: "this didn't come from me… and please delete after you read. See, nothing to worry about!"

Fw: 9/11: Experts Speak Out - Thursday, Sep. 6th, 7:00 pm, MCPL Auditorium,

This month will mark the eleventh anniversary of the attacks of 9/11. For 11 years, advocates for war and greater restrictions on civil liberties have used 9/11 as justification for pre-emptive wars abroad and the establishment of a police state at home. During those same 11 years, many peace activists have derided the 9/11 truth movement for offering "kooky" conspiracy theories that divert from legitimate efforts to bring about peace and justice. Nothing could be further from the truth. Considering the central role that 9/11 has played in the so-called War on Terrorism, one must wonder why so many refuse to question the suspicious circumstances of such a crucial event?

If you are one of those skeptics, I urge you to see the film "9/11: Explosive Evidence, Experts Speak Out." The film offers scientific evidence challenging  the government's version of why the World Trade Center buildings came down. The film, which was produced by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, will be showing next Thursday, September 6th, at 7:00 pm in the Monroe County Public Library Auditorium, 303 E. Kirkwood Avenue, Bloomington, Indiana. The event is free and open to the public. I encourage skeptics and truth seekers alike to see this film.

To date, over 1,700 Architects & Engineers have signed a petition calling for new independent investigation into 9/11. For more information about Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, visit their website: http://www.ae911truth.org/

For too long, too many have avoided the subject of 9/11.  If we are to ever turn things around in this country, we need to start by facing up to what happened that day and demand answers and accountability from our leaders.


Fw: Glenn Greenwald article about NYT - CIA collusion

 Glenn Greenwald has an excellent article concerning the emails between the New York Times reporter Mark Mazzetti and CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf dealing with an article by Maureen Dowd concerning the Obama Administration's leaking of classified information to Hollywood filmmakers about the Navy Seal  raid on "bin Laden's" compound.  Originally, the film "Zero Dark Thirty" was scheduled for release before the Presidential Election.   It has since been rescheduled for showing sometime in December.  The filmmakers claim political reasons weren't a factor in the decision to delay the film's premiere.   As Greenwald notes, when the New York Times Managing Editor Dean Baquet was questioned by Politico about the matter, he cited  "intelligence" reasons for not discussing the matter further.  ~ B.B.

Correspondence and collusion between the New York Times and the CIA

Mark Mazzetti's emails with the CIA expose the degradation of journalism that has lost the imperative to be a check to power

The rightwing transparency group, Judicial Watch, released Tuesday a new batch of documents showing how eagerly the Obama administration shoveled information to Hollywood film-makers about the Bin Laden raid. Obama officials did so to enable the production of a politically beneficial pre-election film about that "heroic" killing, even as administration lawyers insisted to federal courts and media outlets that no disclosure was permissible because the raid was classified.

Thanks to prior disclosures from Judicial Watch of documents it obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, this is old news. That's what the Obama administration chronically does: it manipulates secrecy powers to prevent accountability in a court of law, while leaking at will about the same programs in order to glorify the president.

But what is news in this disclosure are the newly released emails between Mark Mazzetti, the New York Times's national security and intelligence reporter, and CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf. The CIA had evidently heard that Maureen Dowd was planning to write a column on the CIA's role in pumping the film-makers with information about the Bin Laden raid in order to boost Obama's re-election chances, and was apparently worried about how Dowd's column would reflect on them.

Are Tall Buildings Safer As a Result of the NIST WTC Reports?

Subject: Are Tall Buildings Safer As a Result of the NIST WTC Reports?

On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, it is important to remember the official accounts given for the events of that day.
 
There are many ways to evaluate the quality of the NIST WTC reports.  One way that is not often discussed is to examine the reaction of the building professions to the NIST findings, to see if the root causes claimed by NIST for destruction of the buildings translated into real change in design and construction.
 
This new article takes that path and discovers that the claims made by NIST are not what they seem to be.
