(“WAR ON TERRORISM” PLAIN BS !!!) ~ America’s “War on Terrorism” – Understanding the Web of Deceit Threatening Humanity | Global Research
In this new and expanded edition of Michel Chossudovsky’s 2002 best seller, the author blows away the smokescreen put up by the mainstream media, that 9/11 was an attack on America by “Islamic terrorists”.
Through meticulous research, the author uncovers a military-intelligence ploy behind the September 11 attacks, and the cover-up and complicity of key members of the Bush Administration.
The events of 9/11 played a pivotal role in launching the Global War on Terrorism, which has for the last 12 years brought about mass militarization on an unprecedented scale, by turns ravaging sovereign nations, creating further instability and breeding fear and hatred.
As Michel Chossudovsky recently wrote:
“A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding. While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of George W. Bush, remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), his administration is now openly supporting selected rebel units in Syria which are part of the Al Qaeda network.” (See: “Fighting Al Qaeda by Supporting Al Qaeda in Syria: The Obama Administration is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism””)
Chuck Baldwin — Are We Headed For Jericho?… “”The George W. Bush administration put the Continuity of Operations plan into effect for the first time directly following the September 11, 2001 attacks. Their implementation involves a rotating staff of 75 to 150 senior officials and other government workers from every Cabinet department and other parts of the executive branch in two secure bunkers on the East Coast . . . . \”The Bush Administration officially admitted the implementation of the plan on March 1, 2002. Key congressional leaders say they didn\’t know this government-in-waiting had been established.”
Contributing further to my amazement was the way Jericho used real-life political events to depict America\’s fall into tyranny. I was flabbergasted to see the characters of Jericho refer to the Continuity of Government act as the foundation for the government\’s declaration of martial law after the nuclear attack had occurred.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Continuity of Government (COG) act is not television make-believe: it is the real deal.

As I wrote on January 12, 2007, \”In a nutshell, proponents of COG envision a terrorist attack that would precipitate the suspension of the U.S. Constitution.

Obama Is Helping the Terrorists to Win….. “…America elected a Manchurian candidate who promised to “fundamentally transform” America. In the years since, it has become apparent to anyone with their eyes open that Barack Hussein Obama is diametrically opposed to every ideal, every moral standard, every principle upon which the United States of America was founded and constituted. “

Twelve years ago, on September 11, 2001, the United States of America suffered the worst single attack upon our homeland that had ever been made. I’m sure that all of us remember that day when 19 radical Islamic fanatics murdered three thousand civilians, both Americans and guests in our country, and American military personnel while acting on the dictates of authentic Islam as it is drawn from the Qur’an and the Islamic traditions.

This compilation video report just released by David Vose provides more proof of a ‘pre-planned’ crisis event to take place in America some time between September and November of 2013 and includes many MSM video reports from quite a few different sources pointing in that direction. What do they have planned for us now?………………..

In 2001, the Patriot Act opened the door to US government monitoring of Americans without a warrant. It was unconstitutional, but most in Congress over my strong objection were so determined to do something after the attacks of 9/11 that they did not seem to give it too much thought. Civil liberties groups were concerned, and some of us in Congress warned about giving up our liberties even in the post-9/11 panic. But at the time most Americans did not seem too worried about the intrusion.
This complacency has suddenly shifted given recent revelations of the extent of government spying on Americans. Politicians and bureaucrats are faced with serious backlash from Americans outraged that their most personal communications are intercepted and stored. They had been told that only the terrorists would be monitored. In response to this anger, defenders of the program have time and again resorted to spreading lies and distortions. But these untruths are now being exposed very quickly…
Thomas R. Horn — ZENITH 2016: Did Something Begin In 2012?, Part 1… “The fifth projection is geopolitical in nature with growing anarchy throughout the former Soviet republics prompting Russia to conduct training exercises around its borders, a Russian alliance with Iran, soaring gold and silver prices and global military responses. “
That Will Zenith In 2016?
In 2008 and again in 2012 with input from Steve Quayle and I, Sue began working on one of her last articles titled The Fourth Turning: The Protocols and The Gray Champion. A couple months back, she had emailed me from her hospital room and said she was about to expand this Fourth Turning work based on some “Zenith 2016” material I had just shared with her.
Unfortunately, like with the passing of David Flynn, the world will probably never know what Sue was about to reveal. What we do know is her work was partially based on a book published in 1997, The Fourth Turning, which describes itself as “a book that turns history into prophecy.” It explains cycles of life and generational archetypes through the examination of Western historical paradigms over the past five centuries.
…..“If the people of America and Europe do not confront the aggressive policies of their governments, they cannot then remain far from the possible future [terrorist attacks],” Brig. Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, the regime’s armed forces deputy chief of staff, said in a Feb. 23 interview with Fars News Agency. Gen. Jazayeri, objecting to U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war, warned that explosions similar to those in Syria would take place in other countries.
With the sanctions increasing the danger of an uprising against the regime, the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities and the fight to overthrow Bashar Assad in Syria, which Iran calls its red line, the regime gave the go-ahead to unleash its proxy terrorists on America and its economy and change the focus from the Middle East to America itself.
Obama Stretches Terror Definitions In National Security Speech… “But his definition of ‘large-scale attacks,’ his speech made clear, doesn’t include the 2013 Boston Marathon attack that wounded hundreds, the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that injured dozens and killed four, and the 2009 attack at Fort Hood that killed 13 and injured 30.”
Obama Stretches Terror Definitions In National Security Speech

In a long-awaited speech at the National Defense University, Barack Obama claimed that the nature of international terror attacks threatening the United States has changed since Sept. 11, 2001, with ‘no large-scale attacks’ on America occurring since then.
But his definition of ‘large-scale attacks,’ his speech made clear, doesn’t include the 2013 Boston Marathon attack that wounded hundreds, the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that injured dozens and killed four, and the 2009 attack at Fort Hood that killed 13 and injured 30.
The Man Who Predicted Sandy Hook Style School Shootings & 9/11 Terrorist Attacks… Re William Cooper ~ Behold A Pale Horse… | Conspiracy Theories
(Before It’s News)
By: enerchi of ascensionwithearth.com – January 26th, 2013
The 1991 book entitled ‘Behold A Pale Horse’, authored by the man who predicted the false flag attack of 9/11 by CIA asset Osama Bin Laden, also predicted false flag attacks at schools which would be used to attack the 2nd amendment of the United States of America. Does this sound like what is exactly taking place with the recent massacre at Sandy Hook and the political landscape across the United States?
Kyl suggests Benghazi ‘cover-up’
Sen. Jon Kyl, (R-Ariz.) suggests the Obama administration orchestrated a “cover-up” of the events that led to the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.
“There are three questions that have to be answered,” Kyl said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” appearing on a panel with three other retiring senators. “Why weren’t the warnings about the need for security heeded? Why weren’t the requests for help during the ted attack answered and why did the administration think it had to cover up all the things that occurred before by putting out to the American people a narrative that I think will turn out to be absolutely false?”
Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison(R-Texas), agreed, saying that more than 10 days after the deadly attack, “top level people” were disseminating incorrect information.
(CNSNews.com) – Eleven years later, President Obama has quietly extended the national emergency declaration first issued by former President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon.
The declaration, which has to be reissued each year, invokes several war-time powers that give the president greater control of the military. Obama cited the continuing threat of a terrorist attack in justifying his decision to continue the now 11-year national emergency.
First Romney, then the You Tube clip, now the Marines are to blame? The Obama administration‘s shifting claims on what took place in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11 became more defiant yesterday when unnamed officials suggested that no amount of security would have mattered in Libya, not even a detachment of US Marines.
This came on the same day the administration also admitted the assault was a terror attack not a protest gone wrong.
Which Brand of Patriotism?
The statist version of patriotism entails citizens who rally to their government in time of crisis. When the 9/11 attacks took place, the statist patriot did not hesitate. “We have been attacked,” the statist patriot declared. “This is not the time to debate and discuss. We must all rally behind the president and support whatever actions he takes. He is our commander in chief. We are now at war and we must do whatever is necessary to win the war. If our freedoms must be temporarily sacrificed, so be it. They will be restored after the war is won.”
Appearing as a guest on Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN to plug his book, Exit Interview, former ABC News president David Westin recounted his decision to continue barring journalists from wearing American flag lapel pins on air even after the 9/11 attacks, and ended up defending his decision.

Why do we keep assuming the Sikh shooter thought he was killing Muslims?(vanity chat)
Posted on Tuesday, August 07, 2012 9:12:50 AM by Mamzelle
The shooter was military trained in psychological warfare, I believe is a fact? Why do we think that he would confuse Sikhs with Muslims?
During a radio interview today, M.D. Alam, a Democrat activist running for Missouri secretary of state, defended his reported claim that 9/11 was a Jewish holiday and his questioning of why no Jews were killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
A former police officer and FBI official who retired due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder claims she saw angels when she first responded to the Pennsylvania crash of hijacked Flight 93 during the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
“The angels started appearing on the perimeter of the crash site,” Lillie Leonardi said in an interview with Pittsburgh television station WTAE.
“They were dressed as if they were in warrior garb like a Roman centurion, and there were so many of them, you couldn’t see their faces.”
Leonardi has just published a book about her account, titled, “In the Shadow of a Badge: A Spiritual Memoir.”
In a video on her own website, she gives more details of what she saw at the crash site, explaining, “All of a sudden, I kept seeing this flicker of light. You saw all these angels manifest. One in particular, in front, that I knew, it was Michael. He knew I was there to do something. I just didn’t know what it was at that moment. He’s the conduit to God as far as I’m concerned. I’m then the conduit for other people to listen to what has to be said. And then it’s their choice to decide what to do.”
At the time of the disaster, Leonardi was the community-affairs coordinator for the FBI in its Pittsburgh division.
When she initially arrived at the crash site, she told the Associated Press that “the biggest thing for me is that that there were no bodies.”
“I’m used to crime scenes but this one blew me out of the water. It just looked like the ground had swallowed up” the plane, she noted.
“That’s when I started seeing like shimmery lights … and it was kind of misty and that’s when I first saw, like, the angels there,” Leonardi said. “And I didn’t say anything to the guys because you can imagine if I would have said, ‘I just saw angels on the crash site,’ they’d have called the office and they’d have said, ‘She lost her mind and tell her to go home.’”
(THE BLAZE) — On Tuesday evening, Glenn Beck hosted Jonathan Cahn, author of the provocative book, “The Harbinger,“ to discuss what is being called a work ”framed in fiction“ but based on ”fact.“ The premise of the book is that an ancient mystery harbors ”the secret of America’s future” and offers the world a a precognition of events that have recently come to pass. The book has become controversial for its claims.
Cahn, Senior Pastor and Messianic Rabbi of the the Jerusalem Center, Beth Israel, frequently appears on radio and television broadcasts around the country. According to his bio, his teachings are “widely known for revealing the deep mysteries of God’s word and for the restoring of the new covenant message to its original biblically Jewish richness and power.”
WND note: Get both ‘The Harbinger” and the amazing Isaiah 9:10 Judgment video based on the bestselling book!
The ancient mystery, according to Cahn, explains everything from the September 11 attacks to the financial collapse of 2008 and beyond. The author posits that God is sending the U.S. a “prophetic message” of what is yet to come, just as he did once in ancient Israel.

First of all, to the idiots who monitor all our communications, internet, telephone, who knows how far they have gone or are going, do not think there aren’t lists of those who oppose this illegal effort and will see to it you are indicted.

Donna Summer, the 1970s pop singer known as the Queen of Disco, has died of lung cancer, an illness she believes she contracted from inhaling toxic particles released after the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York.
The 63-year-old singer, who had hits including Hot Stuff, Love to Love You, Baby and I Feel Love, died in Florida on Thursday morning.
“The agent, who was in Yemen, was liaising with the CIA before handing the device over to intelligence services,” reports the Daily Mail. “The explosive device was supposed to be smuggled aboard an aircraft undetected and then detonated.”
It has been known for some time that British intelligence runs terrorist operations and protects key terrorist assets.
In 2005, a terrorism expert and a former prosecutor for the Justice Department, John Loftus, revealed that the so-called mastermind of the 7/7 London bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, was a British intelligence asset.
Aswat associate Abu Hamza al-Masri, an influential cleric at the notorious Finsbury Park mosque in London, had a long and productive relationship with British intelligence. He worked with the Special Branch of the British Police and MI5. He told his aides that he was “beyond the reach of British law.”

Just what is that mysterious “winged being” purportedly caught on camera?
Videos posted on YouTube are fascinating many as they show a mysterious burst of light that some say contains a “humanoid” figure inside.
One of the videos (posted below) is narrated by a woman who explains the incident took place in Indonesia. Text and timestamps on the video indicate Sept. 11, 2011 at Cilandak Town Square in South Jakarta.
The bright apparition initially comes down to the ground, and then jumps back up out of the closed-circuit camera’s field of vision.
“You can actually see a humanoid moving,” the narrator says, “what appears to be some type of wings or something that makes – I don’t know what it is.”

What are said to be security guards are seen rushing in with flashlights to investigate the scene.
“You see the security running to see what happened,” she continues. “And you can see the pulsating. … It looks like a butterfly. … I think it’s an extraterrestrial. An extraterrestrial means simply from another dimension so it doesn’t have to be a negative thing right away.”
Among the most fascinating aspects of 9/11 research has been the on-going controversy over whether the absence of evidence that a Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon should or should not be publicized within the movement, especially by Jim Hoffman, who has published several articles maintaining that the physical evidence as well as the witness reports supports a Boeing 757 having hit the building.
One of the more bizarre aspects of his defense of the “official account” of the Pentagon attack is to cite the Sandia test, in which an F-4 was strapped onto a rail car frame and run at around 500 mph into a nuclear-resistant concrete barrier. The plane blew apart into millions of tiny pieces, implying that that was what ought to have been expected of the Boeing 757 at the Pentagon. The building consists of 12 inches of concrete, 8 inches of brick, and a facade of 4 inches of limestone, which is a very porous stone. Even Major Gen. Albert Stubblebine, USAF (ret.), concluded that no Boeing 757 had hit the Pentagon for the obvious reason that he could discern no imprint of the wings on the building.
Stubblebine, of course, was the NSA’s signals intelligence image analyst, but that has not deterred Jim Hoffman, who has also argued that discussing the Pentagon “might be a trap”, since the Pentagon might release some of the more than 80 videos it possesses that would show “what really happened” as opposed to the five frames it has released, one of which shows the image of a small plane that is about half the size of a Boeing 757.
On March 1, the FBI stopped sharing vital terror intel with state and local officials without explanation.
Without making a public or private announcement, the FBI has ended critical intelligence sharing with all 77 law enforcement fusion centers nationwide. This policy was implemented less than two days after a top FBI official told Congress about the FBI’s extensive efforts to share intelligence with state and local partners.
On Monday, a state fusion center official told PJ Media:
The FBI has effectively put us out of business. We are right back to September 10.
Two other fusion center officials in other states confirmed the FBI’s new policy to PJ Media.

America WAKE UP!
That’s what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 and maybe it was, but I think it should have been “Get Out of Bed!” In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.
It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world’s most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign US embassy set the stage for the events to follow for the next
America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Viet Nam experience and had a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America’s inability to deal with terrorism. America’s military had been decimated and downsized / right sized since the end of the Viet Nam war. A poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly organized military was called on to execute a complex mission that was doomed from the start.
Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East. America could do little to protect her citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued.

Rapid Rise of U.S. Mosques: Sign of What’s to Come
MarshallFrank.com ^ | March 16, 2012 | Marshall Frank
Posted on Sunday, March 18, 2012 12:17:05 PM by AMitchum
The number of mosques in the United States has increased 74 percent in ten years according to a study released by the Hartford Institute for Religious Research. In 2000, theU.S.reported 1209 places of worship for Muslims. In 2010, that number has risen to 2106. In 1990, the number stood at approximately 700. This, in a period of time when the radical Jihad side of Islam has established unwavering goals, in writing, that the United States is in their crosshairs for being conquered …from within.
This 74 percent growth has occurred in the years following the deadliest warring attack on American soil in history, perpetrated by radical Islamists. Might point out, that those “radical” Islamists spent many months prior to the 9/11 attack posing as “moderates” in order to assimilate and evade suspicion. Look up: Taqiyya.
Prison Planet.com » Iran Will Be Attacked Because International Banksters Are In Pursuit of A One World Colony
Globalization, as practiced by the U.S. government since the state terror attacks on September 11, 2001, is colonization under a new internationalist flag.
Inusurers aka banksters are at the tip of the spear in the economic colonization of Earth and thus they are the enemies of all nations and all laws. America is the biggest victim of their financial colonization/imperialism.America’s national sovereignty and constitutional government were destroyed in 1913 by the private banksters of the Federal Reserve cartel.
Freedom became a fantasy and America became an illusion.In the 20th century, a few countries resisted the economic colonization of the planet by the banksters. Germany and Japan resisted the banksters’ economic aggression in the 1930s, which means that the governments of the United States and Britain were not the leaders of the free world, but instead representatives of the banksters’ tyrannical will.
“Nine-eleven was caused by evil men. But there can be no question that 9/11 was allowed to happen.
The only question is whether there was no purpose or meaning to it, or whether there was. ‘The Harbinger’ says there was, the calling of God to a nation that was departing from Him and warring against His ways – God calling America back. So it’s ultimately saying that 9/11 was not meaningless but even contained a redemptive purpose.”
He said, “The message is very different from someone just sharing their opinion that God is judging America. ‘The Harbinger’ reveals an ancient mystery, specific and precise signs, progressions, and manifestations that are now reappearing in America. The mystery lies behind not only 9/11, but the collapse of Wall Street and the American economy, the Great Recession and everything in between. It’s so precise that it ordains the exact words spoken by American leaders, and the exact dates of the greatest financial collapses in American history. It’s behind what’s happening to America right now and in exact precision. So it’s not a matter of just feeling something – it’s there. It bears its own message.”
Exclusive: Though the 9/11 attacks occurred more than a decade ago, Congress continues to exploit them to pass evermore draconian laws on “terrorism,” with the Senate now empowering the military to arrest people on U.S. soil and hold them without trial, a serious threat to American liberties, says ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern.
The roots of a sycamore tree at Ground Zero felled on Sept. 11, 2001, have been preserved as a memorial to the event in New York City. A local messianic rabbi believes it’s a visible fulfillment of an Old Testament prophecy about God‘s current judgment on America.

A letter from the Fairways at Heron Bay association said the flag detracts from the aesthetic harmony of the surrounding properties. Wentz said he was confronted by Patricia Favata, president of the property’s board of directors, according to the station.

Hatred Still – The force that brought down the Twin Towers hasn’t been defeated.
Posted on Sunday, November 20, 2011 4:56:47 PM by neverdem
At first, 9/11 seemed impossible. Witnesses couldn’t believe their eyes; officials were bewildered; wild tales swirled of conspiracies involving the CIA, the Jews, real-estate speculators. Yet the impossible happened, and the site of its occurrence in Manhattan fittingly became known as Ground Zero, recalling the devastated landscapes left in the past by atomic experiments.
Now that the general alarm has dissipated, however, we can see that the attack on New York was not unprecedented in its inspiration, its actors, or even its method. The strategy of causing panic by burning cities and terrorizing populations was theorized a century and a half ago by Russian nihilists such as Bakunin and Nechayev, as Dostoyevsky’s novel Demons described. The indiscriminate targeting of civilians wasn’t new: fanatical ideologies both profane and religious have done it since Guernica. Neither were the operational tactics: the World Trade Center was attacked by Islamists in 1993, and the means of destruction—a hijacked airplane—was anticipated in 1994, when an Airbus, commandeered by a jihadist group in Algeria, was supposed to crash in Paris. As for the suicidal dimension, professional martyrs have abounded among Bolsheviks, Nazis, and all true believers determined to give their lives for the cause. The pieces were thus already in place; all that was missing was the plan necessary to put the unthinkable into action.

“Operation Vigilant Shield 12” is the biggest multi-spectrum, high-level exercise for the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command. Northern Command is a Unified Combatant Command of the United States military, formed in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 to protect the United States homeland and support local, state, and federal authorities.
Operation Vigilant Shield 12, or VS 12, is a joint exercise supported by the Joint Coalition Warfare Center and conducted as a command post exercise with a supporting field training exercise in Key West, FL. The exercise is also linked to a Canada Command exercise called “Determined Dragon,” and runs concurrently with the Arizona’s “Vigilant Guard” exercise. It runs Nov. 1-10.
Its dramatic collapse several hours after the Twin Towers fell triggered a decade of conspiracy theories. Those who believed that the September 11 attacks on America were not carried out by Al Qaeda terrorists pointed to the fall of World Trade Center Building 7 as proof of their wild claims.

Bush responded to 9/11 according to traditional US foreign policy (We’re bad to the bone.):
The war on terror that former U.S. President George W. Bush declared following the 9/11 attacks has been criticised for being incompatible with American traditions. Yet a new doctoral thesis from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, shows that his decisions, actions and ideas really did not differ much from previous U.S foreign policy.
‘The Bush administration is just one of many that have used these types of situations to expand the U.S. influence in the world,’ says Frida Stranne, author of the thesis.
‘His notion of preventive warfare was new, but his use of 9/11 to strengthen the U.S. dominance in the world is clearly just another example of a U.S. administration that has used a certain event for this purpose. The role of financial interests, ideologies, lies and exaggerated threats in U.S. foreign policy is not by any means new,’ says Stranne.

The New Jersey police officer responsible for capturing five Israelis who filmed and celebrated while the World Trade Center towers burned has broken his silence, agreeing to a Sept. 16 exclusive interview with AMERICAN FREE PRESS.
As AFP readers are no doubt aware, these are the same Israelis who were working under the direction of Urban Moving Systems, a Mossad front company at the center of Israeli involvement in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Sgt. Scott DeCarlo has never spoken to the media about the details of that day except for two 30-second cameo appearances in Internet videos from undetermined sources. In fact, DeCarlo confirmed that this is the first, and last, interview he will ever grant in regard to this subject.
DeCarlo revealed to AFP hidden details about the events of 9-11 that mainstream media venues should have uncovered 10 years ago, if not for their near-total blackout of meaningful coverage where Israel is concerned.
The Internet has risen to its all-time high as a primary source of news for Americans with 43 percent now saying they get most of their news on national and international issues from the web, according to a survey published Thursday by the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press.
Meanwhile, television sits at an all-time low as a primary source of news for Americans with only 66 percent now saying they get most of their national and international news from TV–a nadir television also hit in December 2010.
Since 1991, Pew has periodically asked Americans: “How do you get most of your news about national and international issues?”
* A d v e r t i s e m e n t
In this survey, respondents are allowed to give up to two answers. (So, a person can cite both television and the Internet, or television and radio, or newspapers and television, etc., as the places where they get most of their news–and the combined percentages for the various sources can add up to more than 100 percent).
In the two decades Pew has been tracking this trend in American news sources, television peaked as the primary source of news for Americans at the time s of the September 2001 terrorist attacks, when 90 percent said they got most of their news from TV. Television nearly returned to that level in March 2003, during the invasion of Iraq, and September 2005, during Hurricane Katrina. At both those times, 89 percent said they got most of their national and international news from TV.

Cong David Crockett nailed it his (alleged) quote—just how crummy can these b@stards get—never mind, that’s not a question!
Post-September 11, NSA ‘enemies’ include us
Post-September 11, NSA ‘enemies’ include us:
Within weeks of the attacks…………………………..
They’ve been accused of rampant thievery, spending billions of dollars like drunken sailors, groping children and little old ladies, and making everyone take off their shoes.
Yet a decade after the TSA was created following the September 11 attacks, the author of the legislation that established the massive agency grades its performance at “D-.”
“It mushroomed into an army,” Mica said. “It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion.”
“The whole thing is a complete fiasco,” Mica said.
9/11 and the Pastness of the Past ~ “Nothing is over about 9/11, but the national consciousness pretends it is so.”
Nothing is over about 9/11, but the national consciousness pretends it is so.
A couple of months ago, when Howard Stern took a couple of weeks off from his morning radio show, Sirius radio replayed “The History of Howard Stern, Part Four,” the final installment of which consists mostly of generous excerpts from the Stern show for September 11, 2001, beginning a few minutes before the first plane hit the World Trade Center. It was nothing less than riveting to listen to. (Unsurprisingly, it turns out that that day’s program is available in its entirety on YouTube.)
On the show, Howard is babbling on in his usual fashion about wanting to get into Pam Anderson’s pants when he interrupts himself to tell his listeners that a plane has smashed into one of the Twin Towers. His conversation with his in-studio regulars then takes a dramatic turn. They follow the reports on TV and talk among themselves in much the same way that millions of others did on that unforgettable morning. They don’t comport themselves like stiff news broadcasters — they don’t edit themselves; they don’t watch their words. They’re just real people, getting angry at the monsters who did this and speculating (correctly, as it turned out) about their identity and motives. They also take calls from listeners and friends of the show who have news updates, personal experiences, or comments to share.
On Sirius channel 100, every episode of the The Howard Stern Show is repeated over and over on the day of broadcast and again on Friday and the weekend. I must confess that I listened to the 9/11 show several times. I was surprised at myself. I wasn’t sure at first why I was doing this. Then I realized that it filled a deep-seated need. What I needed, as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approached, was to return to that day itself and remind myself what it felt like — the shock, the rage, the unashamed patriotism and moral clarity, all of it as yet unclouded by the poisonous cynicism, moral relativism, and multicultural shilly-shallying that would lead to so much national division and self-doubt in the years to come.
So salutary was my dose of Stern that I sought out other 9/11 material on YouTube. Among the things I watched was…………….
9/11, Bush, and the Ongoing threat of Radical Islam
When we think about 9/11, we honor those who risked their lives, we watch the 9/11 video footage of the World Trade Center collapse, and we remember President Bush‘s public address. On 9/11, Bush said that through the Pentagon and World Trade Center attack, the 9/11 terrorists, “can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America.”
Ten years after the 9/11 World Trade Center attack, the threat of Radical Islam is as great as ever. It is crucial to stay informed about this threat so that the words said on 9/11 by Bush hold true – “they cannot touch the foundation of America.”
The critically-acclaimed video The Third Jihad is available to watch free online this September 11th – watch now to learn about the threat of Radical Islam in America.
By watching The Third Jihad video this 9/11, you will be paying tribute to those killed in the September 11th attacks. We must remember what happened on 9/11, and honor the heroes of Flight 93 and the victims of the 9/11 Pentagon and World Trade Center attack.
On 9/11, Bush said that the Radical Islamic 9/11 terrorists “have failed. Our country is strong.” Watch The Third Jihad video this 9/11 to understand the forces which combat the American strength in the years following the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. Share the 9/11 video -stream with others and educate them about the threat we face.
This September 11th, pay tribute to the memories of the 9/11 victims, educate yourself, and awaken others. Our country must remain strong.

Upon request, I have collected links to many of the earliest threads from September 11, 2001 below. I reviewed threads from the very first FR report (http://www.freeRepublic.com/focus/fr/520255/posts)through thread number 520326. Feel free to add other significant threads, including photo archives. Bumping this thread periodically instead of the original threads will also avoid scaring people with the headlines……
Orgy of Deception:
(left, spinning high treason by our ‘leaders’ into a maudlin appeal to patriotism.)
An atrocity such as 9-11 does not require commemoration. It requires justice!
The murder of more than 3,000 Americans hasn’t been avenged. Instead, it has been used to justify war and tyranny
For me, the 9-11 Commemoration is a repeat of the original outrage and therefore very painful to witness…………….
National Security: The Sept. 11 commission stated that our biggest failure was one of imagination. Imagine an Iranian nuclear device detonating high over the American heartland. They’re working on it.
On the same day the 9/11 Commission issued its report, another commission issued a report on a threat that could change our world and way of life in ways we can scarcely imagine. It is a real and credible threat, and it is largely being ignored.
The threat is a phenomenon known as electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and demonstrates why the issue of homeland security extends beyond the need for body scanners or taking our shoes off at the airport. It’s why ignoring Iran is dangerous and why a robust national missile defense should be of the highest priority.
This threat to our national security was the subject of study by the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack, established by unanimous consent of the House and Senate. Released on the same day as the 9/11 Commission report, few paid attention.
It is a scenario worthy of Hollywood, but it is a frighteningly real possibility. A solitary ballistic missile, perhaps an ICBM launched by a decaying North Korean regime or an Iranian mullah, or a terrorist Scud launched from a ship off the Atlantic Coast carrying the first Islamic nuke, detonates its warhead 25 to 300 miles above the U.S. mainland.
Nobody is harmed or killed immediately by the blast. But life in America, the world’s only superpower and largest economy, comes to a screeching halt as a country dependent on 21st-century technology regresses almost a century instantaneously.
