Prime Minister John Key says it would be naive to think an attack similar to the Sydney siege couldn’t happen in New Zealand.
Three people, including the gunman, are dead after the Martin Pl siege ended in a volley of gunfire shortly after 2am local time today (4am NZT).
“I think you have to say yes,” Key said.
“There is always that risk, there’s that risk everywhere in the world. There’s the risk that there’s a person who is somehow attracted to the teachings and kinds of messages and propaganda that these people are peddling.”
In a landmark security speech last month, Key revealed government agencies were monitoring up to 40 possible foreign fighters within New Zealand because of their engagement in “extremist” behaviour.
“We know that as part of those 30-40 people we identified on the first list, that there are people who spend a lot of time on the internet, basically delving very deep into the messages and the propaganda that is coming out of ISIS [Islamic State],” he said.
Last week the “foreign fighters” bill passed into law, 94 votes to 27. It followed a similar tightening of security laws in other countries including Australia and Britain.
The Countering Terrorist Fighters Legislation Bill aims to tackle home-grown terrorism, with the Government arguing the rise of the Islamic State (IS) terror group in the Middle East increased the risk of an attack here.
The new law allows warrantless surveillance for 24 hours, and includes powers to cancel passports for up to three years, when authorities suspect terrorist activities.
Key said the events in Sydney only showed how dangerous IS was, even if it wasn’t directly involved.

Canada’s False Flag Terror: Fingerprints of U.S. Involvement
By Barrie Zwicker
Global Research, November 09, 2014
Truth and Shadows
The “Terrorist” Events of Wednesday October 22nd in Ottawa and two days earlier in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu bear all the hallmarks of a coordinated cross-border one-two punch false flag operation.
The first, the left jab hit-and-run killing of a Canadian soldier, would be the psychological softening up for the follow-up right cross, the killing of another Canadian soldier in Ottawa. Together they dazed the public to an extent that even the ostentatiously-iconic murder at the National War Memorial alone might not have achieved.
The context was within the intensification of the so-called “global war on terror” and in concert with the pro-military Stephen Harper government’s deployment of warplanes supposedly fighting “the terrorists” of the suddenly-emerging “Islamic State.” The first bombing sorties of Canadian F-18s took place hours after the violent acts of supposed “homegrown” and “self-radicalized” supporters of “Islamic jihad.”
Domestically the second outrage occurred on the very day the government was to introduce legislation giving the RCMP, CSIS and CSEC [CSEC is changing its name (to CSE) so that it can continue to spy – and indeed do more spying abroad – but not have the word “Canada” associated with this spying. “Spy agency CSEC says goodbye to Canada” is the headline over an October 31st Toronto Star story by Tonda MacCharles. ]
These coincidences of timing, I submit, are not coincidences at all but quite deliberately planned to maximize the intended impacts: greater public support for a new war in the Middle East, better chances for faster and less-questioned support in Parliament for the increased police and spy powers, and enhanced public approval ratings for the Harper government in the run-up to next year’s general election.
This article delves deeper into the timing including that the events happened, to the day, as military-intelligence “exercises” were taking place that precisely mirrored the “surprise” events. Other hallmarks include the prior involvement of government agents with both of the supposed jihadists, the fact that both were easy-to-manipulate “human wreckage” and the early “terrorism” branding led by the Prime Minister. Other hallmarks include the unfolding parade of memorable iconic elements and images, the “lone wolf” narratives, the dual role of the media in general to both to reinforce the official narrative and to fail to ask fundamental questions about it.
Ottawa shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, especially, is tied to the “war on terror.” At the highest level of visibility, he’s a pawn marketed for public consumption to reinforce “global jihad” rhetoric.
On a subterranean level are two sets of fingerprints. One set shows the involvement of both Canadian and U.S. spy agencies and possibly other of the so-called “Five Eyes” (the others being the UK, Australia and New Zealand), not to mention the grotesquely corrupt FBI, with its record of mounting scores of false flag ops, that will be referred to later.
The second set of prints shows the work of the agencies’ gatekeeper “assets” in the media, in this instance in the USA as well as in Canada. They manipulate “the news.”

A 9/11 British activist hands himself in to UK’s counter terrorism police following British Prime Ministers David Cameron’s speech at the UN General Assembly last week, Press TV reports.
In response to Cameron’s remarks equating people, who question 9/11 and 7/7 attacks in the US and UK as well as the West’s policy towards the Middle East, with Takfiri preachers who radicalize extremists, Nick Kollerstrom handed himself in.
“As the evidence emerges about the backgrounds of those convicted of terrorist offences, it is clear that many of them were initially influenced by preachers who claim not to encourage violence, but whose world view can be used as a justification for it. And we know what this world view is, the peddling of lies: that 9/11 was a Jewish plot or the 7/7 London attacks were staged; the idea that Muslims are persecuted all over the world as a deliberate act of Western policy,” Cameron said while addressing the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 25. Explaining his actions to the Press TV correspondent in London, Kollerstrom said, “David Cameron has redefined terrorism at the UN to include people, who believe that the London bombings involve government complicity, were to some degree arranged, which I certainly do believe, and I’ve published a book on the subject and also I believe the 9/11 was an inside job. I do think Islamic nations are being selectively targeted, it’s perfectly obvious, and if the police force are going by his directive what constitutes terrorism, it seems to me that they need to arrest me.”
The Press TV correspondent was present while Colestrom handed himself in.
“We want to report a possible terror threat, we’ve got a bit of evidence and wonder if we could come in and report it,” Kollerstrom said at Scotland Yard headquarters in London.
The British police refused to arrest Colestrom, but he said that Cameron’s definition of nonviolent extremism will lead to the arrest of many Muslims, who share his views, and described it as another example of racial profiling.

“Let me be clear: any statement that mass surveillance is not performed in New Zealand, or that the internet communications are not comprehensively intercepted and monitored, or that this is not intentionally and actively abetted by the GCSB, is categorically false. If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched. At the NSA I routinely came across the communications of New Zealanders in my work with a mass surveillance tool we share with GCSB, called XKEYSCORE” – Edward Snowden
Snowden: New Zealand’s Prime Minister Isn’t Telling the Truth About Mass Surveillance
By Edward Snowden
September 15, 2014 “ICH” - “The Intercept” – Like many nations around the world, New Zealand over the last year has engaged in a serious and intense debate about government surveillance. The nation’s prime minister, John Key of the National Party, has denied that New Zealand’s spy agency GCSB engages in mass surveillance, mostly as a means of convincing the country to enact a new law vesting the agency with greater powers. This week, as a national election approaches, Key repeated those denials in anticipation of a report in The Intercept today exposing the Key government’s actions in implementing a system to record citizens’ metadata.
Let me be clear: any statement that mass surveillance is not performed in New Zealand, or that the internet communications are not comprehensively intercepted and monitored, or that this is not intentionally and actively abetted by the GCSB, is categorically false. If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched. At the NSA I routinely came across the communications of New Zealanders in my work with a mass surveillance tool we share with GCSB, called “XKEYSCORE.” It allows total, granular access to the database of communications collected in the course of mass surveillance. It is not limited to or even used largely for the purposes of cybersecurity, as has been claimed, but is instead used primarily for reading individuals’ private email, text messages, and internet traffic. I know this because it was my full-time job in Hawaii, where I worked every day in an NSA facility with a top secret clearance.
The prime minister’s claim to the public, that “there is no and there never has been any mass surveillance” is false. The GCSB, whose operations he is responsible for, is directly involved in the untargeted, bulk interception and algorithmic analysis of private communications sent via internet, satellite, radio, and phone networks.
If you have doubts, which would be quite reasonable, given what the last year showed us about the dangers of taking government officials at their word, I invite you to confirm this for yourself. Actual pictures and classified documentation of XKEYSCORE are available online now, and their authenticity is not contested by any government. Within them you’ll find that the XKEYSCORE system offers, but does not require for use, something called a “Five Eyes Defeat,” the Five Eyes being the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and yes, New Zealand.
This might seem like a small detail, but it’s very important. The Five Eyes Defeat is an optional filter, a single checkbox. It allows me, the analyst, to prevent search results from being returned on those countries from a particular search. Ask yourself: why do analysts have a checkbox on a top secret system that hides the results of mass surveillance in New Zealand if there is no mass surveillance in New Zealand?
The answer, one that the government of New Zealand has not been honest about, is that despite claims to the contrary, mass surveillance is real and happening as we speak. The GCSB provides mass surveillance data into XKEYSCORE. They also provide access to the communications of millions of New Zealanders to the NSA at facilities such as the GCSB station at Waihopai, and the Prime Minister is personally aware of this fact. Importantly, they do not merely use XKEYSCORE, but also actively and directly develop mass surveillance algorithms for it. GCSB’s involvement with XKEYSCORE is not a theory, and it is not a future plan. The claim that it never went ahead, and that New Zealand merely “looked at” but never participated in the Five Eyes’ system of mass surveillance is false, and the GCSB’s past and continuing involvement with XKEYSCORE is irrefutable.
But what does it mean?
It means they have the ability see every website you visit, every text message you send, every call you make, every ticket you purchase, every donation you make, and every book you order online. From “I’m headed to church” to “I hate my boss” to “She’s in the hospital,” the GCSB is there. Your words are intercepted, stored, and analyzed by algorithms long before they’re ever read by your intended recipient.
Faced with reasonable doubts, ask yourself just what it is that stands between these most deeply personal communications and the governments of not just in New Zealand, but also the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Australia?
The answer is that solitary checkbox, the Five Eyes Defeat. One checkbox is what separates our most sacred rights from the graveyard of lost liberty. When an officer of the government wants to know everything about everyone in their society, they don’t even have to make a technical change. They simply uncheck the box. The question before us is no longer “why was this done without the consent and debate of the people of this country,” but “what are we going to do about it?”
This government may have total control over the checkbox today, but come Sept. 20, New Zealanders have a checkbox of their own. If you live in New Zealand, whatever party you choose to vote for, bear in mind the opportunity to send a message that this government won’t need to spy on us to hear: The liberties of free people cannot be changed behind closed doors. It’s time to stand up. It’s time to restore our democracies. It’s time to take back our rights. And it starts with you.
National security has become the National Party’s security. What we’re seeing today is that in New Zealand, the balance between the public’s right to know and the propriety of a secret is determined by a single factor: the political advantage it offers to a specific party and or a specific politician. This misuse of New Zealand’s spying apparatus for the benefit of a single individual is a historic concern, because even if you believe today’s prime minister is beyond reproach, he will not remain in power forever. What happens tomorrow, when a different leader assumes the same power to conceal and reveal things from the citizenry based not on what is required by free societies, but rather on what needs to be said to keep them in power?
Our fourth “911–See the Evidence” Exhibition took place in Wellington this weekend on Saturday 13—Sunday, September 14. Hundreds of people came through the exhibition to see the evidence and learn the facts about 9/11. The exhibition was focused on Peter Woods’ visually compelling work from the graphic booklet, “911–See the Evidence”. The exhibition included the image of the Rethink 911 banner in Times Square New York City which we placed at the entrance to the photographic exhibit. This was an eye catching and powerful statement as to where the growing international 911 truth movement is at thirteen years on and it was also wonderful to also let visitors know about the of the collapse of WTC 7 as part of the Rethink911 campaign.
We were also delighted to display the updated banner announcing “Thousands” of architects and engineers who support a real investigation. Video footage featuring the collapses of Building 7 and the twin towers and a compilation film of the (the first four minutes summarising the new laws such as the NDAA) plus Solving the Mystery of Building 7 was also again on display.
We were pleased to have a new addition to our model collection (below). Mike Woods made a scale model of the WTC complex alongside a situational map of the building 7 in relation to the Twin Towers, which was a perfect accompaniment to Chris Ashley’s detailed scale model of WTC 7. We also displayed Jade Tuckwell’s impressive models of the Twin Towers which this year we placed at the end of the exhibition panels.
The literature display this year featured a pdf of the newly released children’s book – The Three Tall Buildings by Dee McLachlan. Unfortunately we couldn’t get a hard copy in time so we had a pdf version of this story running on the laptop which both children and adults alike looked at. We also gave away copies of the latest documentary from ae911truth, . The ae911truth flyer and a Recommended Reading List were also available for people to take away.
This year we were also pleased to feature the work of 911 truth artist Roger Morris who displayed one of his thought provoking works of art and who travelled down to help us staff the exhibition on both days despite having injured himself the week preceding.
Saturday was a slow and steady day with many people who were given flyers returning on Sunday. Like last year, as word got out in Wellington, Sunday afternoon was the busiest time at the exhibition. It was wonderful to see a diverse range of people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds who viewed the exhibition, along with more families than in previous years.
Even though the overall numbers were less than last year, most of our visitors this year were not previously aware of the 911 evidence. While we always enjoy talking with people who are already aware of the evidence we display at our exhibitions, our target audience is the great number of people who have still not been exposed to accurate reporting on the events of September 11 2001. Many visitors were shocked at the revelations of information concerning Building 7 and their reactions were mixed. Some were confused and angry, but most were very thankful that we had revealed this information to them. Most amazing after all this time is that there are so many people who are still unaware of the third tower to collapse in free fall speed that tragic day.
Thanks to Helen, Jade, Chris and Phillip in Wellington for all their hard work this weekend and generosity in donating to this exhibition, and thanks particularly to Mike Woods who facilitated the planning and marketing of this exhibition. Special thanks to Martin in Auckland for his generous donation, to David Ruddlestone from Raumati who helped set up the exhibition on Friday afternoon and to Jeremy, who helped set up the lighting on Saturday morning, helped staff the exhibition all day Saturday and returned to help with the pack out. A special thanks to Jade for bringing the crew custom-blended juice to help keep our energy and nutrition levels up!
Sunday morning brought back the rain and wind from Saturday, but cleared up enough to generate more passers-by later in the day, and therefore more visitors during the second half of the day.
Those of us in the exhibition room and on the street had the usual mix of mostly polite people and a very small number of hostile, truth-averse people. The arguments against our work are always expressed with a great deal of heat and little or no light. That said, we managed to make some progress in penetrating the hard shell of firm belief with some of the official conspiracy theory adherents. We find that talking to people who are learning new information for the first time to be the most rewarding part of our job. We recognise our great responsibility in encouraging people to think for themselves and to look for facts first before forming any conclusions.
We wish Mike well as he travels with the exhibition to help Peter at the Rotorua Convention Centre next weekend. If anyone in other areas would like to exhibit the work in future, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

to Go Digital in NYC!
Huge Two-Sided Video Billboard in Times Square
One Block from the New York Times
We have some good news and some bad news to share about our 13th Anniversary ReThink911 billboard, but don’t worry! We think the good news far outweighs the bad.
The bad news — unfortunately, we cannot go forward with the billboard directly in front of the New York Times Building. The group currently occupying it has a year-long contract. While they had agreed with the billboard company to take a break for the month of September so that we could have the space, the agreement allowed them to change their mind until the last minute, and unfortunately they exercised that option.
The good news — (and we think it’s really good!) – is that we found an even more stunning billboard just one block away at the corner of 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. Not only does this billboard draw maximum attention by facing in two directions while towering over one of the busiest intersections in Manhattan; but it’s also digital, which allows us to show practically life-size video footage of WTC 7’s symmetrical destruction. And that’s exactly what we plan to do!
For 15 seconds out of every two minutes, people walking by will see WTC 7’s free-fall descent — the vast majority of them for the first time — on two massive 45’ by 45’ screens. Altogether, we’ll reach 100,000 people each day, amounting to 3 million viewings from September 8th to October 5th! The message will be simple and powerful, encouraging viewers to trust their instincts about WTC 7’s smooth, symmetrical downward motion — and follow up at ReThink911.org
Even though we will no longer be speaking directly to the folks at the New York Times, most Times employees will see the ad on a daily basis, thus making it impossible for them to ignore the truth about what happened at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The upside, of course, is that millions of people will be treated to a high-impact viewing experience of the truth about the third skyscraper destroyed on 9/11.
Once again, we would like to thank everyone who contributed toward the 13th Anniversary ReThink911 Billboard. We are disappointed, of course, that circumstances beyond our control did not allow us to follow through on the original plan. We hope, nonetheless, that you are as pleased as we are about the opportunity to show WTC 7 on enormous screens right in the heart of midtown Manhattan.
Stay tuned for the unveiling of the ad later this week!
The AE911Truth Team
Last Year It Was WTC 7;
This Year It’s the Twin Towers
Help Us Take On The New York Times with a New ReThink911 Billboard
We at AE911Truth are thrilled to announce the first of our 13th Anniversary projects: the September 2014 New York Times Billboard!
With your support, this billboard – which features the explosive destruction of the North Tower along with our rebuke to New York Times chief correspondent David Sanger’s jaw-dropping comments last year – will stand directly outside The New York Times Building throughout the month of September, including on the 13th Anniversary of 9/11.
Like us, you were probably flabbergasted when you heard Sanger say on C-SPAN, “We’ve not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes.” The following day, more than 1,000 AE911Truth supporters contacted the Times and Sanger himself to say, “Clearly, you haven’t been looking.”
Now we are sending the message even more loudly with a billboard the newspaper’s employees and the public cannot possibly ignore. Like last year, this 29′ x 13′ billboard, standing just across the street from the Times Building and the Port Authority Bus Terminal, will be seen by 100,000 people each day. With the image of the North Tower grabbing the eyes and the minds of everyone who has a clear sight line, this one is sure to get the attention we all know it deserves.
What will it take to reach 100,000 people each day and make a statement that will have every Times staffer wondering about the evidence of controlled demolition? It will cost $30,000, and we can raise that money in no time, if those of us who want this billboard chip in today. Will you help us reach our target by this Wednesday?
Think about it! At 100,000 people each day and a cost of $1,000 per day, each dollar you donate will reach 100 people. With a modest donation of $10, you will personally reach 1,000 people. With $25 you’ll reach 2,500 people, with $50 you’ll reach 5,000, and so on.
Plus, on top of these millions of individual “impressions,” we have a very good chance of generating some news coverage – and maybe, just maybe, getting the Times to respond. After all, we got C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to have Richard Gage on their show yesterday after a year of nonstop phone calls. If we’re to win over the Times, too, we’ll need your help contacting its editorial board when September rolls around (stay tuned for details on that effort).
But first, we need a little bit of financial support to make this billboard a reality. Will you make a donation so we can reach hundreds of thousands of people throughout the 13th Anniversary month of September?
Please go to ReThink911.org today to chip in, and together we’ll make it untenable for The New York Times to continue ignoring the evidence.
