Today’s crisis, in many ways, resonates with the experience of the tragedy of September 11, 2001. At that time, the American people were shocked by a series of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. In 2001, the majority of people accepted the official narrative about these attacks, the origin and those who committed these heinous crimes. But soon many contradictions became apparent and did not support the official narrative. Honest people did not accept the official story as to why “building seven” in the World Trade Center complex (which was not hit directly), collapsed in a controlled demolition style! They were puzzled about the attack against the Pentagon at that time and still are perplexed regarding what happened to the airplane that supposedly hit and made a small hole on the side of the building, without a trace of any plane wreckage or remains of its passengers?

In this light, it is not farfetched nor unreasonable to speculate about the origin of this virus. Mr. Trump insists that this virus is “Chinese”. Mr. Pompeo repeatedly referring to the new Coronavirus as the “Wuhan virus”. The Trump Administration and commercial media, in full force, are spreading the xenophobia against Chinese people in general and Chinese-American citizens in particular. Just like September 11, once again a group of people have been singled out and terrorized through unsubstantiated and fake news, in this case, Chinese-American communities.

Constant in the 911False Flag Atrocity Studies, is the exposed Dichotomy between ‘Truth’ and ‘the LIE’ – the ‘Perception Management’ FireWall between Forensic Proofs and Context supplied by Experts in all Fields of DEMOLITION, Building Science, False Flag Methodology,  And the total abject BLANK REFUSAL (Reactionary Denial) of the Academic community (en masse assumed responsible for genuine Intellectual Inquiry/disassembly) into those Forensic Proofs and Context.

By every Academic measure, this failure to research the Evidence of Demolition and Deception, trapping an entire generation of thinkers into an official narrative, can only argue to the Success of 911 FalseFlagDemolition; as Deception.

A complex, multifaceted and Successful ‘Black’ Operation.

The Failure of Academia to understand the proofs of itself being deceived, can only illuminate the sophistication of Psychologies allowing for it.  In this case, a Deception practiced upon a whole generation of IR Professionals now so thoroughly ‘believing,’ that they have fallen prey to the very confirmation-bias and rote response they accuse the 911 truth community (Ad Hominen ‘Conspiracy theorists) of exhibiting.

This Critical lack is exposed by Dr. David A. Hughes in this now (wonderfully) published and peer reviewed paper

Legal team also reveals that murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi was ‘potential witness’ in lawsuit

By MEE staff in Washington
Published date: 5 March 2020 20:39 UTC | Last update: 2 days 1 hour ago

A legal team representing survivors and families of victims of the 9/11 attacks has accused Saudi authorities of trying to silence several witnesses.

An almost two-decades-old lawsuit brought to court by thousands of victims and their families accuses Saudi officials of having ties to the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York and Washington. About 3,000 people were killed.

On Wednesday, lawyers representing the families said that four of their witnesses in the case had been threatened or intimidated by alleged Saudi agents.

On those grounds, the plaintiffs’ legal team requested that the identities of the witnesses in the drawn-out legal battle be protected and kept secret.

Lawyers representing the Saudi government denied the allegations of witness tampering, saying the claims were “based on hearsay within hearsay”.

The defense also accused the plaintiffs’ lawyers of trying to gain a “tactical advantage” in legal deposition interviews with witnesses set to be organised later this month.

Jamal Khashoggi: ‘A potential witness’
The lawyers of the 9/11 victims invoked the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi officials in Turkey as evidence of the kingdom’s potential threat against their witnesses.

The 9/11 lawsuit looming over Saudi Arabia’s ambitions

Andrew Maloney, one of several attorneys representing the plaintiffs, also for the first time revealed that Khashoggi, an ardent critic of the Saudi government, had been “a potential witness” before he was murdered.

“He had valuable information,” Maloney told the judge on Wednesday.

Maloney, during the emergency hearing that took place at a federal court in lower Manhattan, did not provide further details regarding what that information might have been.

US Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn said she was “troubled by the allegations” and asked for a submission from the plaintiffs’ lawyers detailing the claims to be turned in by 18 March.

“I take these allegations incredibly seriously,” Netburn said.

‘Absolutely false’
In court papers, Maloney described some of the allegations made by the four witnesses who said they feared they were being targeted by Saudi officials.

One witness said his family had been approached and “directly threatened by Saudi government officials” within the past year, Maloney wrote. He said the witness was given to understand that he or his relatives “would be murdered” if he spoke out.

Another potential witness said that relatives in Saudi Arabia “feared for their lives”, Maloney said. A third reported being stalked, and another was reportedly thinking of buying a bulletproof vest.

He added that law enforcement authorities had been notified of the alleged threats.

“We categorically deny these allegations,” said Michael Kellogg, a DC-based lawyer representing Saudi Arabia.

Kellogg accused the plaintiff’s legal team of trying to “pick and choose which witnesses will testify”.

“We should be allowed to know who these witnesses are,” Kellogg told Judge Netburn. “We think these allegations are absolutely false.”

Following Kellogg’s statements, the plaintiffs’ lawyer accused the defense of wanting to know the identities of the witnesses so that Saudi officials could be notified and “dissuade them from testifying”.

“[No] Saudi Arabian government official, employee, agent, or anyone acting on Saudi Arabia’s behalf has attempted to threaten any potential witness or any witness’s family members in this proceeding,” a Saudi government minister said in court papers.

Saudi diplomat linked to 9/11
The US government has never released documentation indicating that the Saudi government was involved in 9/11.

US judge allows 9/11 lawsuits against Saudi Arabia to proceed

Still, last year during a meeting at the White House with victims’ families on the anniversary of the attacks, US President Donald Trump promised the visitors that he would order the attorney general to release the name of a Saudi diplomat who had apparently been linked to 9/11 in an FBI report years earlier.

The next day those hopes were dashed, as Attorney General William Barr said the release of such records would not be possible.

Their disclosure risked “significant harm to the national security,” Barr said at the time.

The Saudi government has long denied involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

In March 2018, a US judge in New York rejected Saudi Arabia’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.

We are saddened to hear the news this morning of Jeanette Fitzsimons who passed away late last night. Jeanette Fitzsimons is a signatory on the Political Leaders of 911 truth Website and met with Richard Gage, AIA in Wellington when he spoke at Te Papa in November 2009.

From the Statement of Jeanette Fitzsimons, Co-leader of the New Zealand Green Party since 1995, and member of the House of Representatives since 1999

There is so much that does not make sense about the official version of 911. I have read all 600 plus pages of “Crossing the Rubicon” and it appears to me to be well researched, though I still have an open mind on the matter of what exactly did happen. It is time we knew the truth one way or another, and an independent enquiry is the way to achieve this. If we do not know the truth of our history it will compromise our future.

Perhaps, it was reading Mike Ruppert’s examination of 911 and the geo-political relationship to Peak Oil in his book Crossing the Rubicon that may have lead her to be one of the first signers of the Political leaders for 911 truth petition. I remember that when Jeanette Fitzsimons met with Richard Gage, AIA in Wellington in November 2009, she had with her Ruppert’s book Crossing the Rubicon which was open at the appendix where the document Operation Northwoods was displayed. One of her first questions To Mr Gage was “Tell me is this document true?”

We thank Jeanette Fitzsimons for her courage and leadership in giving her support to a new 9/11 investigation and for her service to Aotearoa, New Zealand. May she rest in peace.

 Frances Shure, M.A., L.P.C., here resumes her series of articles for Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth that address a defining issue of our time: “Why Do Good People Become Silent — or Worse — About 9/11?” Each installment of this series has been a synthesis of academic research and clinical observations on the subject.

Since the CIA has long played such a unique role in manipulating the media both in the U.S. and abroad, I will now, in this installment, give this muscular body composed of national security intelligence operatives the special attention it warrants. In so doing, I will demonstrate the clear overlap that exists between the CIA (part of the powerful) and the mainstream media’s executives and journalists (part of the structure).

The dubious legal proceedings at the Guantanomo Bay (Gitmo) prison camp continue to promote the idea of justice for victims of 9/11. Unfortunately, these proceedings do not represent an administration of law but an unstated claim that the Global War on Terror is above the law. More importantly, the Gitmo antics have one obvious objective—to perpetuate willful ignorance of the 9/11 crimes. There is a dangerous elephant in the Gitmo courtroom, however, and if it ever gets reported it could bring down the terror-torture house of cards.

Reporters covering Gitmo continue to call it a trial but it is not a trial, it is a “military tribunal.” They continue to call the site “Camp Justice” when justice is as far from the prison camp as it has ever been from any human endeavor. What they don’t do is think critically about the information they are parroting from court sources.

The history is profoundly absurd. The suspects were brutally tortured and held without charges for up to 18 years. The alleged evidence obtained from the torture was made secret. Then the records of the secret torture evidence were illegally destroyed. Then the secret evidence simply turned out to be completely false. FBI and CIA officers then began to make a mockery of the whole thing, secretly bugging defense team discussion rooms and covertly inserting themselves as translators and defense team members.

This is not just a matter of an extreme violation of human rights and an utter disrespect for the law. Within this sequence of stupidity looms the mother of all oversights. That is, the secret evidence that turned out to be false was used as the basis for The 9/11 Commission Report.
At the center of the media’s willful ignorance is “forever prisoner” Abu Zubaydah, the first alleged al Qaeda leader captured and tortured. In 2009, the U.S. government began correcting the record by admitting, in habeus corpus proceedings, that Zubaydah was never associated with al Qaeda and that he had no role in, or knowledge of, the 9/11 attacks. That Zubaydah was never associated with al Qaeda is no longer challenged by anyone and is regularly repeated in the mainstream press. What is not mentioned is the astounding implication of that admission.

Abu Zubaydah’s “torture testimony” was used to construct the official narrative of 9/11 that is still accepted as fact today.

Check for yourself. Do a quick search for the word “Zubaydah” in The 9/11 Commission Report. You’ll find it 52 times. As you read these references and claims, ask yourself—how could a man who the government now says had nothing to do with al Qaeda have known any of these things? How could he be a key travel facilitator for al Qaeda operatives when he wasn’t associated in any way with al Qaeda? How could Zubaydah give detailed accounts of Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM)’s plans for 9/11 when he had no knowledge of those plans?

Disassociating Zubaydah from al Qaeda causes so many problems for the official narrative of al Qaeda and 9/11 that people like Lee Hamilton, the co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission, simply develop amnesia when asked about him.

As seen in the 9/11 Commission Report, the official account begins with linking “Mukhtar” (KSM) to “al Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubaydah,” who we now know was never associated with al Qaeda. Both FBI interrogator Ali Soufan, in a 2009 New York Times opinion piece, and Vice President Dick Cheney, in his 2011 book, claimed that Zubaydah (who never had any knowledge or connection to 9/11) identified KSM as the “mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.” The official account of 9/11, and the ongoing fake trial at Gitmo, all proceeded from there.

But none of it was true.

The latest crime of 9/11 is that this fact is not being reported. The media admits that Zubaydah was never associated with al Qaeda but entirely ignores the devastating consequences of that admission. The false official account for 9/11 is the root cause and ongoing justification for greater crimes—1) wars of aggression in multiple countries that have destroyed millions of lives, 2) the public’s acceptance of torture and indefinite detention, and 3) mass surveillance and an overall attack on freedom.

Instead of reporting that the basis for those greater crimes has been obliterated, the media reduces the subject to a discussion of how torture is bad but perhaps still justified by the gain. Of course, torture is bad but mass murder is much worse and the justification for both the wars and the torture is now indefensible! Until the media reports this fact there will be no justice for victims of 9/11 or for the victims of the resulting wars and torture.

We know that there are many striking anomalies and inexplicable facts about 9/11 that have yet to be resolved. But the fake Gitmo trial stands as a final absurd crime in the history of 9/11 as it is represented as an attempt at justice yet includes more farcical elements every day. For example, the CIA-driven architect of the torture program recently claimed that he was acting on behalf of the 9/11 families and that he would do it again.

The final proceedings have been set to officially begin in January 2021, aligning with the 20th anniversary news cycle and re-emphasizing that propaganda is the primary goal. The propaganda narrative focuses on setting the false official account in stone and further normalizing torture. Sadly, reporters and editors covering these events don’t seem to have an interest in challenging any substantial part of the story. Let’s hope that one or more of them comes to their senses and proves that suspicion wrong.

Welcome to this special series of “Live On The Fly” with Randy Credico, Julian Assange: Countdown to Freedom.
Interviews on the approaching extradition trial of Julian Assange in London
[In the wake of the recent U.S. illegal drone strike and assassination of Qasem Soleimani, it has become all the more timely to expose the illegal activities of the U.S. government. Julian Assange did just that, and he is now facing extradition to the U.S. and a lifetime sentence behind the bars of a U.S. maximum security penitentiary. As his health declines, not only does he deserve our support at this critical moment, the right to publish and inform the public is at stake.

Supporters of Julian Assange, and fans of Randy Credico, will be happy to know that the popular and controversial radio program Live on the Fly is back as an exclusive, all-new podcast series here at CovertAction Magazine. This series is called Julian Assange: Countdown to Freedom and is your first stop for late-breaking updates on the approaching extradition trial of Julian Assange in London.

In this first podcast, hear compelling clips from William Kunstler and John Pilger on extra-judicial and arbitrary detention as well as interviews with Nathan Fuller, director of the Courage Foundation which supports whistle blowers and runs Julian’s public defense campaign, Coleen Rowley, retired FBI Special Agent and whistle blower, expert on criminal procedure constitutional law, and Anthony Papa, artist/activist and the author of 15 to Life: How I Painted My Way to Freedom, and This Side of Freedom: Life after Clemency. — Editors]

Interviews

Nathan Fuller
Nathan Fuller is director of the Courage Foundation which runs Julian Assange’s public defense campaign at defend.wikileaks.org. Courage supports whistle blowers and other journalistic sources who risk life or liberty to make significant contributions to the historical record. Before Courage, Nathan covered Chelsea Manning’s military court martial for the Chelsea Manning Support Network.

Coleen Rowley
Coleen Rowley is a retired FBI Special Agent and former Minneapolis Division Legal Counsel who taught criminal procedure and constitutional law to FBI agents and police officers.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, she became a whistleblower in connection with her testimony to the 9-11 Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry and to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding a main failure of the FBI that helped enable the attacks.

For this she was named one of TIME Magazine’s three “Persons of the Year” in 2002. In 2003 she tried to alert the FBI Director that the 9-11 attacks were being used as a false pretext for the disastrous war on Iraq—but this notification fell on deaf ears. Rowley retired in 2004 and began speaking and writing on these same issues.

Anthony Papa
Anthony Papa is an artist/activist and the author of 15 to Life: How I Painted My Way to Freedom, and This Side of Freedom: Life after Clemency. He is the first person in the history of New York State to receive both clemency and a pardon.

Randy Credico
Randy Credico is a political satirist, civil rights activist and former director of The William Mosea Kunstler Fund For Racial Justice. Randy has an uncanny knack for circumventing mainstream media disinformation and official stonewalling to bring you live-audio debriefings and analysis from lawyers, journalists, whistle blowers, organizers and activists who are fighting to protect Assange from a lifetime sentence behind the bars of a U.S. maximum security penitentiary.

Randy visited Julian at the Ecuadoran embassy in London and is actively coordinating public support for him in the U.S. and abroad. Because Randy is adept at evading news blackouts and cutting through official stonewalling, Live on the Fly delivers gripping live-audio debriefings and analyses from the defense attorneys, witnesses, journalists, activists and many more.

Prior and returning guests include renowned investigative journalist and documentarian John Pilger; investigative journalists Stefania Maurizi and Max Blumenthal; animal rights activist and environmentalist Pamela Anderson; whistle blowers Thomas Drake, John Kiriakou, Coleen Rowley and ex NYPD Detective Frank Serpico; whistle blower, human rights activist and former United Kingdom Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray and many more.

On September 11, 2001, at 5:20 PM, the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed into its footprint, falling more than 100 feet at the rate of gravity for 2.5 seconds of its seven-second destruction.

Despite calls for the evidence to be preserved, New York City officials had the building’s debris removed and destroyed in the ensuing weeks and months, preventing a proper forensic investigation from ever taking place. Seven years later, federal investigators concluded that WTC 7 was the first steel-framed high-rise ever to have collapsed solely as a result of normal office fires.

Today, we at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth are pleased to partner with the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in releasing the draft report of a four-year computer modeling study of WTC 7’s collapse conducted by researchers in the university’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The UAF WTC 7 report concludes that the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11 was caused not by fire but rather by the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.

A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse of World Trade Center 7
http://ine.uaf.edu/wtc7

http://ine.uaf.edu/media/222439/uaf_wtc7_draft_report_09-03-2019.pdf

A research team at the University of Alaska’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, led by Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao, Department of Civil Engineering, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, released yesterday for public comment their findings from a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on September 11, 2001. This is the first scientific investigation of the collapse of the building. Here is the conclusion:

“The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”

Sent through to RNZ (Saturday/JimMora/ThePanel/Sunday and WorldWatch) 5th Sept.

John Pilger wrote that:  “In the 1970s, I met Leni Reifenstahl, close friend of Adolf Hitler, whose films helped cast the Nazi spell over Germany.

“Of course,” she said, “especially the intelligentsia….When people no longer ask serious questions, they are submissive and malleable. Anything can happen.”

Our intellectual elites have failed us completely since the beginning of this terrible epoch.      That so far no mention of this critically important study has been given any air at all, bodes ILL for its future discourse in the void. Our ‘journalists are afraid. We, the pathetic multitudes, are locked into ‘the orthodoxy’ in such powerful imprisonment of mind, that all objective and forensic truths in this very real matrix of falseflag, psyop, IIO, MKULTRA and black operational DRILLS-gone-live; Lie dying at the end of a no exit road.
