Alan Jackson - Where Were You 9/11 Tribute

" Lyrics

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children?
Or working on some stage in LA?

Did you stand there in shock at the sight of
That black smoke rising against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor?
Or did you just sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?

Did you burst out with pride
For the red white and blue
And the heroes who died just doing what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, Hope and Love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is Love

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Teaching a class full of innocent children?
Or driving down some cold interstate?
Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor?
In a crowded room did you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her?
Did you dust off that Bible at home?
Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened?
Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages?
Speak with some stranger on the street?
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow?
Go out and buy you a gun?
Did you turn off that violent home movie you're watching
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns?
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers?
Stand in line and give your own blood?
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family?
Thank God you had somebody to love

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, Hope and Love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is Love

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, Hope and Love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is Love

And the greatest is Love
And the greatest is Love

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day? "

Where were you during the September 11th attacks?

Many people have, is, and will be reflecting on this "infamous" day. As I (Sal) write this on Monday, March 6th 2002 (6 months since the attacks) watching "9/11 Remembered" (in New York City) telecast special on televsion, I still remembered how the 9/11/01 developed=>

I was getting off from work (Ravenwood Home-group home for disabled handicapped adults) after my early 6-9am shift. I had to get some groceries at the local Willies in Morris, MN. As I was walking around, I notice immediately the thick air of tension and sadness. When I got up to the cash registrar, I did my usual "Minnesota Friendly" greeting, "Good Morning", and the lady at the cash registrar said, "Oh, it's not really a good morning". I then look up to her with a confusion, and she told me "oh, you haven't heard...a plane crashed into the World Trade Center in N.Y." (paraphrasing). I immediately turned my radio in my blazer to MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) and heard the sad news. I arrived home around 9:15am and my roommate-Juan told me the news. I asked, "How did you know?". He told me Dan Specht (former roommate that lives now in Fargo, ND) called after he got up earlier because God told him to get on his knees and pray. Juan said, "I wasn't sure what to pray for, so I started to pray". In my heart and mind, I thought it was God intervening at this moment. Juan and I continued to listen to the live reports going on in the East coast of the U.S. (plane crashed in the World Trade Center, another crashed into the Pentagon, and a couple other crashes later on that morning). I couldn't stand hearing it on radio, which I wanted to see it with my own eyes on television. I then went over to my neighbors (3 apartment same level house) and asked if they got their television on. They told me they don't have t.v.,which I briefly shared the sad news to them. I went back to my house and ask Juan if he wanted to go with me to the Student Center T.V. Lounge to watch the live broadcast of all these events. We watched the events unfold at the UMM Campus: Student Center T.V. Lounge (basement) with many others (faculty, staff, students) as everybody's eyes were glued to the t.v. set with silence, despair, and pesimistic anticipation on what else might happen.

A friend from my local church came down to the t.v. lounge with already printed pamphlets about a prayer tonight at Living Waters (local community ministry center) and asked me if I could help with a last minute evangelism outreach ("Are you ready?") on the Campus Mall at noon. I was a little hesitant to not do it, but I wanted to help with the "End Harvest Evangelism" outreach (thinking eternal).

We stood in the middle of the campus passing out flyers with my boombox playing some praise & worship music (Skillet) in the background. My friend stood on a landscape stage preaching about "Are you ready?"

I had to work at the group home in town (3-10p), which I wasn't really up to working. However, it feels good to be with folks that I can call "family" as I've been working there about 2 years now during these times. The staff was a little down too, but we had to pick ourselves up and focus on our work. We talked together before the consumers/residents of the group home arrived. One of the consumers kept on mentioning "plane crash", which was obvious they knew what was currently going on. To focus on our work, we decided to shut the televsion off and really got together closely spending quality time.

I went home and talked more about the todays events with my roommates. I would later found out that over hundred people from the campus/community came for a prayer vigil at the Campus Mall that evening.

Final thoughts: It's really sad that events like these have to happen to get families or communities come together. I really value the relationships (family, friends, acquaintances from work/school/ etc...) I have now because you do not know when they will be taken away from your life like a "blink of an eye".

Q: What lessons did you learn from this tragedy? What are you doing now?...

"Hi Sal,
I remember it very well. Joey and I had our KUMM radio show and we heard that a plane flew into the World Trade Center in NYC. My first thought was yeah right. Then after our radio show I joined you in the basement of the student center TV Lounge, to watch the events unfold. Thank you for the e-mail. My day went well."

Dear Sal,
I remember that day very well. I was coming back from my Pre-calculus class around 9 AM and I turned on the TV before doing my exercises. I was in shock to see the first tower burning and was very sad... I couldn't believe it was happening. my roommate Daany came in a little later and I told him the bad news. He was really bummed and didn't believe it at first .I felt sort of numbed by this. Later in the day I went to English class but everybody was numb and we decided to cancel class. Everyone was watching the TV. A preacher was on the north side of a mall preaching the Gospel when I came back from lunch. It was a very surreal day and I was still in shock. I also remember the precautions that the President was taking by staying in Air Force One and Congress evacuating. I will never forget that day... Thanks for the email.

    Below were some FAQ's about 9-11.01, here are some thoughtful answers to ponder about=>

    Q: How could a "loving" God let something like this happen?"

    "Finally, The Truth on National TV"

    Billy Graham's daughter was being interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" And Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.

    She said "I believe that God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman that He is, I believe that He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand that He leave us alone?"

    I know there's been a lot of emails going around in regards to 9/11/01, but this really makes you think. If you don't have time, at least skim through it, but the bottom line is something to think about...In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.

    Let's see, I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body was found recently) complained she didn't want any prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

    Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school...the Bible that says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said, OK.

    Then, Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide) And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about so we said, OK. Then, someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. And the school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued (There's big difference between disciplining and touching, beating, smacking,humiliating, kicking, etc.) And we said, OK.

    Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to tell their parents. And we said, OK.

    Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want, so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school. And we said, OK. Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs. And agreeing with them, we said it doesn't matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.

    And then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women and call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body. And we said, OK.

    And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published pictures of nude children and then stepped further still by making them available on the internet. And we said OK, they're entitled to their free speech.

    And then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that promote profanity,violence, and illicit sex. And let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes. And we said it's just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.

    Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.

    I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."

    "Dear God, Why didn't you save the little girl killed in her classroom?" Sincerely, Concerned Student... AND THE REPLY "Dear Concerned Student, I am not allowed in schools". Sincerely, God.

    Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

    Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says.

    Funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow Satan who, by the way, also "believes" in God.

    Funny how we are quick to judge but not to be judged. Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

    Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

    Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week.

    Are you laughing?

    Funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them. Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.

    Are you thinking?

    Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard one will know that you did. But, if you discard this thought process, then don't sit back and complain about what a bad shape the world is in!

    What have you or are you going to do now after this event? Are you going to just continue living the life you were before this event? What can we learn from this event-individually, as a nation, and as citizens/Christians of this world?

    If you ask me, I ponder about-Why God might have let this happend? I feel our nation (capitalitic, greedy, self-centered) brought this event to ourselves. Yes, it sounds harsh, but we have to go back to history. Read the Old Testament! Many of them rebelled and disobeyed God and started to do selfish things that caused God to "let things happen".

    Also, I want the readers of this to reflect the ingnorant violence that was reported minimally throughout the nation. Many people of Arabic background or thought of were targeted with "hate crimes". I still remember the Asian Indian descent man shot at a gas station down south (I believe Arizona) because he was wearing a turbin on his head. I thought there was going to be a huge race riot in this country targeting any one that "looks like the enemy".

    As Christians, I thought this was an "open door" to share the Gospel with anyone with Arabic/Muslim backgound. Instead of pointing our fingers at "them", we can pray for them and "reach out"!

    Reflections A Year Later

    I'm writing this on 9/11/02. I just got off work and I shared with an employee how today is just like a year ago. I was working this exact shift and would work a 3-10p the same day. As I was listening to the radio this morning and the different shows on the "rememberance of 9/11"; I decided to just listen and mourn that unforgettalbe tragedy. Also, I decided to just not forget the hope I have in Jesus that I can trust and depend on Him-no matter what the circumstances are.

    I decided to search for more testimonies on how we can thank God. Here are some:

    -over 700-800 (?) salvations was recorded at Jim Cymbala's Brooklyn Tabernacle(a church located in New York City) that day.

    Here are websites on remebrance:

  • Cheryl McGuinness, widow of Flight 11 Co-Piolot
  • American Renewal Movement
  • American Civil and Law of Justice, a biblical perspective
  • Other

  • Dayna Curry & Heather Mercer, prisioners freed in Afghansitan
  • more....

    My last minute reflections:

    Continue to pray and not lose hope in God no matter what the circumstances are tomorrow. As God's promises are in the Bible: "Do not worry about tomorrow...(Matthew 6) and "'s the Lord's battle" (2 Chronicles 20:15). As Christians, we battle with prayer and let God do it!

    As I'm currently writing during a U.S. potential attack on Iraq. I encourage the readers of this to know that the real "enemy" is Satan, not the terrorist, Muslims, or any human being. The two forces here are "good" and "evil" (somewhat like in the popular movie last year "Lord of the Rings")God said we should "love our neighbors" (Matthew 22:37-39) and pray for our enemies (Matthew 5?). Sometimes the enemy is within man when we draw far from God through: anger, temptations, selfishness, greedy, and other acts of sinful nature (Galatians 5:19-21).

    Want to do something about what's going on?

    I sometimes feel like I need to do something to save the world. But, Jesus already did that when he defeated Satan on the cross. He died for our sins and we just need to acknowlege that with our lips (Romans 10:9); and continue to live in Christ through our lifestyle. Let others who don't know Him see His love through us and then they'll come to that hope and freedom in Christ. The media keeps interrogating the viewers that we need to "fight back" and "retaliate". Instead, we should fight back with prayer and worship (2 Chronicles 20:15-30) as Paul (formerly Saul) states in Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual fordes of evil in the heavenly realms." That's what Satan is trying to do-have God's creation turn against one another (eg. black vs white, rich vs. poor, muslim vs. christianity, etc..). The media tries to get us motivated by saying that "we shouldn't let these terrorist take our freedom away from us. Instead of highlighting "American Pride", we should highlight "Jesus" (who gets all the glory). As Christians, we should get out of our comfort zone and counterattack with prayer on the devils' schemes on taking our freedom in Christ for our eternal reward in a bigger home-Kingdom in Heaven!

    "Live day by day"

    This morning I woke-up to a dream that I still remember. In my dream I had a visual picture of my love ones (friends, family, etc..). I ask God why you showed this to me. I then remembered what I shared last night during the "Good News Radio Show" (Tuesday @8-10pm on the 10th of September 02'): I ended the show by encouraging listeners to not get up-tight and worried of current political events. Most of the news out there is depressing. Instead of getting influence by it, we should sometimes/most of the times avoid "negative/pessimistic" news. We should live each day to the fullest and thank God who He has blessed you with (friends, family, etc..) There is a movie called "Life is Beautiful" (an Academy Award winner: Best Foreign Film-French) several years ago that a Holocaust-Jewish father and son live the remaining days in prision with joy. That's what we should all do as we do not know what tomorrow brings-especially the times we live in! As I write this, I would've add in the show that we should read the Bible-a book of promises and hope by our Creator/Father! After you read this, please take a minute or more to reflect what are you thankful to God for. If you can write this every day for now on. Then spend sometime with your love ones and tell them how you appreciate them being in your life. Don't forget to talk to God/Father in Heaven and spend time with Him everyday-HE LOVES YOU!

    NewsSPORTS News 9/11 Spurred War in Iraq, U.S. Says
    6:27 am PST, 10 July 2003

    Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Wednesday the U.S. did not go to war against Iraq because of new weapons of mass destruction programs, but because of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

    "The coalition did not act in Iraq because we had discovered dramatic new evidence of Iraq's pursuit of weapons of mass murder," Mr. Rumsfeld said. "We acted because we saw the existing evidence in a new light, through the prism of our experience on September 11th."

    In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mr. Rumsfeld defended the war and the U.S. intelligence that led to it, the Washington Times reported.

    "The objective in the global war on terror is to prevent another attack like September 11th, or a biological, nuclear or chemical attack that would be worse, before it happens. We can say with confidence that the world is a better place today because the United States led a coalition of forces into action in Iraq," said the defense secretary.

    Democrats and other critics on Capitol Hill have claimed the administration overstated the intelligence on Iraq in order to justify going to war.

    On Wednesday, a recently retired State Department intelligence official accused the administration of acting on "faith-based intelligence" that "fostered a fundamentally flawed view of reality" and said Iraq had not posed any immediate threat before the war, the paper said.

    "The administration did not provide an accurate picture to the American people," said Greg Thielmann, a 25-year Foreign Service professional who retired in the fall. "Iraq posed no immediate threat."

    Mr. Rumsfeld, however, defended the intelligence.

    "As we've gone through this period, I think the intelligence has been quite good, and I don't think that the fact that there is an instance where something was inaccurate ought to in any way paint a broad brush on the intelligence that we get and suggest that that's a pattern or something; it's just not," he said.

    9/11: What We Learned
    "On September 11, 2001, the unthinkable happened to our country. That day and the days that followed are forever etched in our memories.

  • Not Only Were the Events of 9/11 Overwhelming, but so were the Rumors By Rich Buhler, Creator of Special to ASSIST News Service Wednesday, September 7, 2011

  • "COSTA MESA, CA (ANS) -- Some ten years ago, on September 11, 2011, a series of terrible attacks on the United States by shook the world, and took the lives of so many and changed the world forever.
    The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated suicide attacks against targets in New York and Washington, D.C. On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger jets and the hijackers intentionally crashed two planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City; both towers collapsed within two hours.
    Hijackers crashed a third plane into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. When passengers attempted to take control of the fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, preventing it from reaching its intended target in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 died in the attacks.
    This Sunday, millions of Americans, along with many others around the globe, will be commemorating that shocking series of events that changed the world for ever.
    However, there was another historic effect of the 9/11 “Attack on America” on that day: it generated more rumors on the Internet through forwarded emails than anything before or since.
    In the middle of the shock, anger, and uncertainty of that day, forwarded emails became the underground newspaper of the country. Those eRumors were a way that people shared information with each other that they thought was being ignored or overlooked by mainstream media. If a person received a message with news that was alarming, interesting, explanatory, or inspiring that he had never heard before it seemed to make sense that friends and family may have not heard of it either so he or she decided it would be better to forward it to them too.
    Those forwarded emails were not only abundant but circulated at lightning speed around the world. Here are some of them:
    The Last Tourist
    One of the first rumors was known as “The Last Tourist On the World Trade Center.” It was a picture of a young man posing for a snapshot on an observation deck atop one of the Twin Towers in New York. With the Manhattan skyline behind him he looked like one of a multitude of innocent travelers who had done the same thing. The difference was that in this picture an American airlines jetliner was closing in on the tower behind the unwary visitor and it appeared that he was a fraction of a second from disaster. The picture was accompanied by a message that said the photo came from a camera that was discovered in the rubble of the collapsed building.
    We received more inquiries at about “The Last Tourist” picture than any other story about 9/11. The truth is that the picture was a hoax.
    We were able to quickly determine that it was a fake because of several parts of the story that didn’t fit with the facts. For example, only one of the Twin Towers had a public observation deck and that was tower number 2, which was not hit by an American Airlines plane but rather an airliner hijacked from United Airlines. We were also able to locate the actual picture from the Internet that had been used to paste the American Airlines aircraft into "The Last Tourist” photo. It was from the website and was a shot of a Boeing 757. The American Airlines plane that hit tower number 2, however, was a Boeing 767.
    Our readers also got involved and pointed out several other inconsistencies such as that the tourist was dressed for cold weather but the temperature in Manhattan that day was forecast to be a high of 81 degrees and that the airliners impacted the towers while in a banking turn, not in straight and level flight.
    Several weeks later it was revealed that the picture was created by the man in the photo, a student from Hungary identified by his friends as Peter. He used Photoshop to paste the picture of the airliner into the shot and sent it to a few of his contacts as a joke. He never dreamed it would go to the inboxes of millions of people. He remained unidentified for months until some of his friends saw other people taking credit for the picture and they spilled the beans about him on the Internet.
    Most of the time the readers of accept our findings but in this case we got a ton of complaints from people who had gotten emotionally involved with the picture and did not want to accept that it was fiction. Some of them were overwhelmed by it and grieved the loss of the simple-looking man on the tower who didn’t know he was about to die. Many said they had been weeping and praying over him and his family. They were not willing to believe that such an emotional investment had been stimulated by a practical joke, albeit a joke that was in very bad taste.
    Terror at American Shopping Malls on Halloween
    Another massively circulated email not only spread widely and rapidly but actually had documented impact on a segment of the American economy. Shortly after 9/11 an alarming eRumor warned that there could be terror attacks at shopping malls in the U.S. on Halloween in October of 2001.
    There were various versions but they all followed a particular pattern of rumors that sometimes pop up after civil unrest. A typical message described a woman who had a Middle-Eastern boyfriend who disappeared mysteriously in early September. He left a note, however, or later sent a message, that made it clear he was not returning and that alerted her to avoid flying on commercial airplanes on 9/11 and to stay away from shopping malls on Halloween. Since the email appeared after 9/11 and seemed to have predicted the attacks it was easy to think there was also substance to the Halloween warning.
    The resulting tsunami of forwarded emails was amazing. Even people who were skeptical about the message forwarded it to family and friends anyway “just in case it might be true.” There were probably dozens of versions of this eRumor spread by hundreds of thousands of people but one email in particular rose to the top and became the message that most people received and passed along. That resulted in what I call an “Unintended Internet Celebrity.”
    A woman who worked for a California company was distressed by the email and took a few seconds to pass the message on to her friends and family. Her name, email address, and place of employment were all in her forward and it also appeared as though she knew the story first-hand and was friends with the woman who had the Middle-Eastern boyfriend. Her simple dispatch became the one most often forwarded and it exploded into inboxes all over the world. She was immediately besieged with emails and phone calls from people asking if the story was true. Her place of employment was clogged with calls and the email traffic shut down their email server. She was not only embarrassed by all the attention but also with the fact that she wasn’t supposed to use her work email for personal messages.
    The warning had a huge effect, however, and according to the International Council of Shopping centers (ICSC) there was a measureable reduction of shoppers at U.S. malls on Halloween that resulted in losses in the millions of dollars. It caused such concern that I was later invited to be a general session speaker at the annual ICSC Security Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. No evidence was ever found that the story was true and no law enforcement agencies had any credible evidence that there were threats to U.S. malls. Halloween 2001 came and went with no problems.
    True Stories
    There were plenty of true stories that circulated after 9/11 and some of them were inspirational. One popular eRumor claimed that a new U.S. Navy ship, the USS New York, was partly constructed with steel from the ruins of the World Trade Center. The story is true. The USS New York was one of three ships carrying names that were associated with 9/11. The other two are the USS Arlington, named because of the location of the Pentagon, and the USS Somerset, named after the county in Pennsylvania where United flight 93 crashed after being taken over by hijackers.
    There were several true personal accounts of people who survived the attacks such as the story of Michael Hingson, a blind man who was on the 78th floor of Tower One when it was struck by a jetliner. A report of him and his guide dog Roselle working as a team to escape the burning tower and helping others escape became an international news story. Some of the most popular true inspirational stories from September 11 emerged from the experiences of airline passengers whose planes were diverted when the air traffic system across the U.S. was shut down in response to the hijackings. Delta flight 15, for example, was an international flight that spontaneously took refuge in Gander on the Island of Newfoundland, one of more than fifty jetliners that landed there for the same reason. The confused, uncomfortable, and inconvenienced Delta passengers spent the night in their airplane but learned the next morning that Gander and many surrounding communities had opened all their high schools, lodges, churches, and many other meeting halls into shelters and some residents even welcomed travelers into their homes. The passengers of flight 15 were cared for by the citizens of a town named Lewisporte. The travelers were so grateful that they established a trust fund to provide scholarships for students of Lewisporte to attend college. Many similar stories were told by the passengers of other planes that went to Gander.
    Rumors that Refuse to Die

    There are some emails from 9/11 that still circulate today. One of them has caused fits for the folks who make Pepsi, which has been unfortunate, because the story is not, and never was, about Pepsi. The eRumor claims that the soft drink giant created a patriotic can after 9/11 that had an anti-religious flaw: It left the words “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. The truth is that Pepsi did not produce such a can. The original eRumor was about Dr Pepper and that company did create a post-9/11 patriotic can. It had the Statue of Liberty on one side and a phrase from the Pledge of Allegiance on the other side. But it was not the entire pledge. Ninety percent of the pledge was omitted, not just the phrase “under God,” and there was no intent to focus on deleting a reference to deity. The eRumor left the impression that the whole pledge was quoted without “under God,” which, of course, would have been more incriminating. Somewhere along the way the Dr Pepper eRumor was altered and the name of Pepsi was substituted for Dr Pepper and the Pepsi version got wider and longer distribution.

    These are all a good reminder that every time you click your mouse to send an email you have become a publisher on the largest publishing machine that has ever existed, the Internet. Even though you may have sent it to a handful of your friends it takes only a few generations of each of those friends forwarding it to their friends to spread around the world. No matter how few contacts we send an email to, they deserve to know that we’ve done our best to make sure it is accurate. "

  • 9/11 Remembered By Wayne Pederson Special to ASSIST News Service Wednesday, September 7, 2011

  • "COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (ANS) -- Where were you on September 11, 2001? On that 9/11, I was involved in a meeting of National Religious Broadcasters in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Erwin Lutzer was keynote speaker. As we learned of the tragic attacks in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania, we gathered the group and Dr. Lutzer began to teach of St. Augustine’s “City of God” vs. the “City of Man”.
    This world is not our home. The City of God is real and permanent. The City of God is a heavenly and spiritual matter, as opposed to an earthly and political affair. The City of God was contrasted with and in conflict with, the city of men. But the City of God’s eventual triumph is assured by divine prophesy. Our world has changed since 9/11/01. One can’t get on an airplane without thinking how our world has lost its innocence. And the attacks on our nation transformed America from the great benefactor of the world to a country fearful and suspicious of our international colleagues. Many call them “the enemy” However, many mission organizations have chosen to not view people in these nations as enemies. Jesus taught to love our enemies and pray for those who despise us. He gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
    In the last few years, HCJB Global has re-doubled efforts to proclaim the message of Christ through media and demonstrate God’s love through human care. The verse I discovered in 9/11/01 rings true this 9/11. It’s Psalm 91:1. “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” In fact, all of Psalm 91 is a statement of God’s shelter and protection. It might be good reading and reflection on this 911. The Psalm goes on to state: “you will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day. If you make the Most High your dwelling, even the Lord who is my refuge, then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.” This is better than taking your shoes off before your board an airplane. This is the calm assurance that God’s protection is worth more than the war on terror, or the TSA screenings. "

    Extraordinary 9/11 virtual ‘candlelight’ prayer vigil to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attack on the United States, takes place at the end of Greg Laurie’s Los Angeles Harvest at Dodger Stadium The outreach was attended by 50,000 people and 5,934 decisions for Christ were recorded , Sunday, September 11, 2011 By Dan Wooding Founder of ASSIST Ministries
    " LOS ANGELES, CA (ANS) -- On Saturday, September 10, 2011, the night before the tenth anniversary of 9/11 national tragedy that rocked the United States, something quite extraordinary occurred at the conclusion of Greg, Laurie’s Los Angeles Harvest that brought some 50,000 people to Dodger Stadium, with 5,934 decision for Christ being recorded.
    The virtual 9/11 cell-phone 'candlelight' vigil The huge crowed were asked to download to their smart-phones, an App that replicated a burning candle and then, as the stadium darkened, they were asked to hold up their cell phones as The Katinas led the people in song in commemoration of 9/11.
    The stadium was filled with reverence and awe after hearing Greg Laurie share the hope any and every one can have in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord and Chuck Smith, pastor of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, said a prayer for the survivors of the 9/11 attacks.
    Before that, Laurie had said, “Hope has a name and it is Jesus Christ.”
    This was is believed to have been the largest gathering in the nation to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and took place as a contrast to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s decision to exclude any prayers from clergy at ground zero in Sunday’s official ceremony that was met with criticism from many Christian leaders, including Laurie.
    The one-night evangelistic outreach, called the “Los Angeles Harvest,” was being hosted by more than 330 churches throughout Los Angeles County and beyond, and utilized 4,000 volunteers. In addition to the message presented by Laurie, the Los Angeles Harvest featured music from top name Christian musicians Chris Tomlin, Kirk Franklin, Jeremy Camp, and The Katinas, and an interview with special guest Louis Zamperini, a World War II prisoner of war survivor and a former American Olympic long-distance runner (1936, Berlin), who shared his story of faith.
    Dan Wooding interviews Greg Laurie at Dodger Stadium (Photo: Alex Murashko Jr.) Before the event began, which brought out the largest single-night crowd that has attended a Harvest Crusade in its 22 year history, Laurie, the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., spoke to me about why he had chosen Los Angeles to hold this historic outreach.
    “We’re here because this is Los Angeles, one of the most influential cities in all of the nation -- in fact in all of the world -- and we thought. ‘Let’s go to the epicenter of where so much media takes place to see if we in some way can influence the influencers,’” he said. “We’re coming here with the simple message of the gospel. I don’t know when there has been a large scale evangelistic event held in recent history and so we want to come back and say God loves you here in the City of Angels and you can come into a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.”
    I then referred to 94-year-old Olympian and War Hero, Louis Zamperini, who was to be one of the speakers, and I asked Laurie why he had invited him to share his testimony.
    Louis Zamperini lights the Olympic torch he carried at the 1984 Olympic Games(Photo: Brad Graverson) He said, “Well Louis has an amazing story which is recorded in the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption [which was written by Laura Hillenbrand, the acclaimed author of Seabiscuit]. I’ve gotten to know Louis a little bit and I think he’s got one of the most mesmerizing stories I’ve ever heard of.
    "It is a story of survival against all of the odds. But also Louis is a hometown boy and went to school here and also to USC. He even has an airport named after him called ‘Zamperini Field’ and actually, before he comes over here and joins us at Dodger Stadium, he’s going to be ‘flipping the coin’ for the USC-Utah game at the Coliseum. So we thought that we’ve got to have Louie here in his own city.”
    The Los Angeles Harvest featured a message from Greg Laurie on Hope and music from Chris Tomlin, Kirk Franklin, Jeremy Camp, and The Katinas and the event was interpreted in Spanish and Korean, and signing for the deaf was provided.
    Greg Laurie
    During his message, and speaking of 9/11, Laurie said, “God did not do that. Wicked people did that.”
    The evangelist/pastor went on to say that a poll found that the top question people have for God is why tragedies like 9/11, tsunamis and earthquakes happen, and why emotional turmoil of divorce and the death of loved ones occur.
    Laurie said, “Maybe some of you are angry with God because something happened to someone you loved and you just can't reconcile that. How does God allow bad things to happen to good people? You know what, my answer is, I don't know?”
    Laurie said the Bible teaches that believers will find out the answers to this and other questions when they're in heaven.
    But Laurie said to go to heaven people must first of all accept Jesus as their personal Savior, confess their sins and ask for forgiveness.
    The huge crowd of people at Dodger Stadium who flooded the field to receive Christ After he made a call for people to receive Christ, thousands of Angelinos then streamed out onto the field to make a profession of faith in Christ, filling the outfield behind the extensive stage that stretched over first, second and third bases.
    "That has never happened before,” a stunned Laurie said as he surveyed the completely filled outfield. “We made history tonight at Dodger Stadium.”
    The Los Angeles Harvest outreach was extended around the world as it was broadcast live on the Internet at Also, there were “Behind the scenes” updates from Greg Laurie that were posted on his blog at, as well as on Twitter at and on Facebook at
    With a trademark ability to present a straightforward gospel message in a culturally relevant format, drawing on the latest in current events, contemporary Christian music, and technology, Greg Laurie’s Harvest events have drawn more than 4.2 million people to stadiums and arenas around the world since 1990. Laurie also serves as senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, Calif., one of the largest churches in the U.S., and serves on the board of directors for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

As once was the newborn babe, Growing up to a quarreling child So is our nation, a nation at war Fighting with our older brothers, the countries of our world. Roots reaching out, intertwining our souls- branches soaring towards the heavens We are a nation, a strong foundation. We are a nation at war, facing tough issues of hatred. Finding ourselves saying, "Enough is enough" as we move on to a higher calling. We are a nation standing on eagle's wings, watching and protecting those who are in harm's way.

    "In September 2001, Lisa Jefferson had an unexpected opportunity to be used by God. Her now well-known 15-minute conversation with a passenger on United Flight 93 forever changed the direction of her life. In her book Called, she emphasizes that her listening skills and her ability to take charge and stay calm in a crisis were used to encourage fellow believer Todd Beamer in the last moments of his life.
    She didn't ask to be used that way. But God saw a woman who was available and matched her with someone who was in need. Lisa now shares her story with whomever she can to encourage believers to always be ready to serve.
    Not only has God given us natural abilities, He also equips every believer with spiritual gifts for the purpose of ministry. God doesn't use the unwilling—He won't force us to serve Him. His part is to equip us (Eph. 4:11-13) and empower and prepare us for service. Our part is to be faithful and available and aware of opportunities to use our gifts (Rom. 12:6).

Countless millions of people are being manipulated and lied to by a network of individuals within government that work on behalf of private interests. The individuals were involved in the terrorist attacks of September 11th. Many of those same figures are are connected to historical events that have shaped our understanding of government crime. For instance, the Iran Contra affair involved many figures that showed up in the 9/11 attacks.

  • How Did United Flight 93 Crash? This website explores different theories of Flight 93's crash. (Online Sept 20 /2001 - latest update August 1, 2003)

  • "Background:
    I didn't even give this crash a second thought until I got a couple phone calls from friends on the 11th saying friends of theirs with inside information "knew" it was shot down. Whatever - friend of a friend info isn't worth much. (I never say Flight 93 was shot down on this website. Just take it easy.)...

    I have some basic questions reporters aren't asking. Why?
    " 1) We had somewhere between 30 and 55 minutes after Flight 93 was "suspect" to intercept it. The current official story is that 3 F-16 fighters had been scrambled at 9:24AM and were airborne over Washington D.C. by 9:40AM. AWACS and a Tanker were scrambled also. These pilots saw the Pentagon on fire, the President had OK'd a shootdown, the Secret Service had advised the pilots to protect the White House at all costs, and Flight 93 was the only aircraft off course - heading toward D.C. - with it's transponder off. Flight 93 crashed at 10:06AM only 125 miles from D.C. (10 minutes away at 750mph for an F-16) and 3 nuclear power plants were in between Flight 93 and D.C. Fighter pilots have weighed in and told me likely speeds might be 600+ for the F-16's and 300+ for the 757 converging at 1000 mph.
    What did those 3 fighters do from 9:40AM until 9:55AM when they finally turned towards Flight 93 and were 60 miles out at 10:06am?
    Remember, at 8:45 we scrambled 2 F-15's and they reached the WTC 15 minutes later. Why were the FIRST jets so quick to react by comparison?"

    "Description: A moving Music Video Using Alan Jackson's "Where Were you When The World Stopped Turning" and Footage from "9/11 - The Filmmakers' Commemorative Edition DVD" (From the Back Cover) On the morning of September 11, 2001, brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet were working on a documentary about a rookie New York City firefighter. Hearing a roar in the sky, Jules turned his camera upward--just in time to film the only existing image of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center. In a fateful instant, Jules and Gedeon became eyewitnesses to the most shocking and defining incident of our time. With cameras rolling, the Naudets followed NYC firefighters into the heart of what would be known as Ground Zero. What emerged is an unforgettably powerful visual document and a stirring tribute to real-life heroes who, in their city's darkest hour, rose to extraordinary acts of courage and compassion.

    "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?"
    Alan Jackson

    " Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day,
    Out in the yard with your wife and children,
    Working on some stage in LA?
    Did you stand there in shock at the sight of
    That black smoke rising against that blue sky?
    Did you shout out in anger
    In fear for your neighbor,
    Or did you just sit down and cry?

    Did you weep for the children
    Who lost their dear loved ones
    And pray for the ones who don�t know?
    Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the< rubble
    And sob for the ones left below?

    Did you burst out in pride
    For the red white and blue,
    The heroes who died just doing what they do?
    Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
    And look at yourself to what really matters?

    I�m just a singer of simple songs.
    I�m not a real political man.
    I watch CNN but I�m not sure I can tell you
    The difference in Iraq and Iran.
    But I know Jesus and I talk to God
    And I remember this from when I was young,
    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave
    And the greatest is love.

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
    Teaching a class full of innocent children
    Driving down some cold interstate?
    Did you feel guilty cause you�re a survivor?
    In a crowded room did you feel alone?
    Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her?
    Did you dust off that bible at home?

    Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened,
    Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
    Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages,
    Speak with some stranger on the street?
    Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow,
    Go out and buy you a gun?
    Did you turn off that violent old movie you�re watching
    And turn on �I Love Lucy� reruns?

    Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger?
    Stand in line and give your own blood?
    Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family?
    Thank God you had somebody to love.


    (refrain repeated)
    The greatest is love,
    The greatest is love.

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day?


    Please feel free to share your memories of that fateful day in comments. It is helpful to share our sorrow on this tragic anniversary. I don�t know what I would do if I didn�t have this outlet."

    9-11 World Trade Center Memorial - Jeff Buckley/Hallelujah

    "Summer of 1999, my family and I had the opportunity to vacation in New York City. We had a lovely time, saw a few Broadway shows, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, The Empire State Building, Central Park and we visited The World Trade Center. At the World Trade Center, there is what is called the "Top of The World" indoor and outdoor observation deck. When arriving at the World Trade Center we had a souvenir photo taken of us in the lobby area then up the elevators to the indoor observation deck and then it ends with a wonderful rooftop stroll with a suburb view..
    It is unfortunate for those who have never had the opportunity to see or visit the WTC. They were a couple of enormous and majestic buildings located in lower Manhattan. Now, their absence from the cityscape of Manhattan breaks my heart. The day they fell, our freedom, as we knew it, was taken from us. America will never be the same"

  • Photographer behind 9/11 "Falling Man" retraces steps, recalls "unknown soldier" By Joe Pompeo, Yahoo! News – Mon, Aug 29, 2011

  • "Richard Drew put down his camera bag and looked up at the colossal skyscraper that seemed to be racing toward the clouds at an accelerated clip.
    "I'm really surprised how fast this building's gone up," he said of the rising edifice at 1 World Trade Center, peering at the monolith from beneath the brim of a tan baseball cap. "I just hope it isn't another target."
    It was around 2 p.m. on a bright Wednesday afternoon in mid-July, and Drew, a veteran Associated Press photographer with wire-rimmed glasses and a neatly cropped silver beard that betrays his 64 years, was standing near the northwest intersection of Vesey and West streets in Lower Manhattan, across from the noisy jungle gym of cranes and steel where a global business hub is currently being reconstructed. Nine years and two months earlier in this very spot -- now an austere pedestrian plaza in the shadow of the Goldman Sachs building -- Drew took a picture that became one of the most iconic images of one of the most catastrophic events in American history.
    "I don't like coming down here," he admitted.
    But he had nevertheless returned to retrace his steps for the first time since Sept. 11, 2001, when he had watched dozens die through the lens of a Nikon DCS620. On that similarly brilliant morning a decade ago, two planes had crashed into the Twin Towers by the time Drew emerged from the Chambers Street subway stop around a quarter after nine. The 110-story buildings looked like a pair of giant smokestacks spewing plumes of black soot into the crystal blue sky. He began shooting, focusing on the topmost floors. It wasn't long before he realized that some of the people trapped inside -- as many as 200 of them, it was later estimated -- had decided that plunging thousands of feet to their deaths was preferable to burning alive.
    "There's one. There's another one," he said, recalling the horrific scene with a detached ease. "I just started photographing people as they were falling."
    One of those people would come to be known as the Falling Man. Though his identity remains unconfirmed, some believe he was Jonathan Briley, a 43-year-old sound engineer who worked in a restaurant on the top floor of the North Tower. The man fell at 9:41, and Drew caught about a dozen frames of his fatal descent. In one of them, the subject soars earthward in a graceful vertical dive -- arms at his sides; left leg bent at the knee.
    "Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it," wrote Tom Junod in a renowned 2003 Esquire piece that coined the title of the photo, which won a 2001 World Press Photo award and is the subject of a 2006 documentary film. "If he were not falling, he might very well be flying."
    Newspapers the world over made space for the Falling Man in their Sept. 12, 2001, editions. But the widespread publicity sparked a debate as to whether the image was too gratuitous for public consumption. "To me, it's a real quiet photograph," Drew argued. Unlike fellow AP photographer Nick Ut's Pulitzer-winning 1972 shot of a naked 9-year-old girl fleeing a napalm attack in Vietnam or Drew's famous photos of Bobby Kennedy's bloody dying breaths, "There's no violence in it," he said. It was now close to 3 p.m., and Drew had decamped to a Shake Shack a few blocks from Ground Zero for a late lunch. Waiting for his food to arrive, Drew said he doesn't attend the memorial ceremonies held each year at the hallowed site nearby, nor does he plan to show up for the 10th anniversary of the tragedy. He was just doing his job that day. "I don't need to be here to commemorate what happened to me," he said. "I record history every day. Everything I do, whether it's photographing DSK [Dominique Strauss-Kahn] in court, or the World Trade Center, or spring training baseball, it's all part of history, no matter how small or how large."
    Drew likewise doesn't reminisce much about his experience on Sept. 11. (No lingering nightmares or PTSD, either.) He is reminded of the photo, however, twice a day, every day, through online news alerts that track mentions of the words "falling man" in the press. He picked up his BlackBerry to check the latest, in which "a 22-year-old man died Monday after falling off a rocky cliff and being swept out to sea in Hawaii," he reported. The alerts, which he created on his Yahoo! and Google accounts about eight years ago, rarely have anything to do with the actual Falling Man, but he likes to keep up anyway.
    "I'm curious to see if people are writing about it or talking about it," he said. "To see how they might interpret the picture."
    Sometimes the Falling Man reveals himself where it's least expected. Drew's longtime neighbor, the author Helen Schulman, lives five floors above the apartment Drew shares with his wife, his two daughters, and the family's 5-year-old golden retriever, Ajax, in a prewar building on the Upper West Side. Schulman wrote an entire novel without knowing that Drew, as she explains in the acknowledgements, had taken the "picture that haunted and inspired me throughout the years of writing" it. Drew and Schulman serendipitously connected the dots after she completed the first draft of the book, "A Day at the Beach" -- about a distraught family that flees Manhattan for the Hamptons on Sept. 11 -- which was published in 2007.
    "It's always going to be a part of me," perhaps more than any other photo he's ever taken, Drew said.
    But has it changed him?
    He put down the last bite of his Chicago dog, took a sip of beer, and dabbed his mouth with a napkin before pausing to contemplate.
    "I think of it as a learning experience," he said of the photo and Sept. 11 in general. "I get so caught up in the adrenaline of doing this job. So, looking back on it, I think a lot about being able to go home to my family every night. Whether I decide to think about it daily or not, it's always in the back of my mind. It's this world event that I have become a part of in my own little tangential way. I'm not a hero fireman; I didn't die there; I didn't have a loved one who passed away there. But it's something I'll never forget."
    As for the anonymous soul whose legacy Drew has unwittingly preserved, "Even if people don't want to see my photograph, that man did fall out of the building," he said. "To me, he'll always remain the unknown soldier."

    Survivor Stories


  • Final survivor of south tower collapse struggles with scars of 9/11 By Torrey AndersonSchoepe, Yahoo! News – Fri, Aug 26, 2011

  • "..DiFrancesco prefers not to go into detail about his horrifying experience on 9/11. He says it forces him to relive the nightmare. In the past 10 years, he has given only a few interviews, including one for John Geiger's book The Third Man Factor and another for an article in the Ottawa Citizen. Based on those accounts, this is what happened to DiFrancesco:..
    "The scars on my head and my arms remind me every day how fortunate I am," he says. ..
    But the effects of his experience that day go much deeper than his scars and mementos. DiFrancesco's near-death experience changed his entire outlook on life.
    "For me, being so close to death, I don't fear dying or moving on," he says. "When I was almost down and out, I did see the light, and I was prepared to go, but I'm here. … If I was to die tomorrow I would hate leaving my wife and kids, but I don't fear dying now."
    DiFrancesco's whole mentality changed, too. He's constantly on alert, even when there's no imminent threat. ...
    "When I see tall buildings and planes, it jogs my memory," he says. "Loud noises [and chaos] really bother me. I'm a little claustrophobic, so when [I'm] in a big crowd, it gets to me a lot. I also find screaming and yelling really gets to me."
    But out of the pain and chaos came compassion, hope, and a deeper meaning to the idea of paying it forward. DiFrancesco and his family have always been religious and involved in community service, but the overwhelming outreach from their friends and neighbors after 9/11 moved them to make it a bigger part of their lives....
    The healing process is an ongoing one for his family. Over the years, DiFrancesco and his wife have been collecting friends' and families' stories of how 9/11 affected them -- and may even consider putting them into a book.
    "We both find it fascinating what you were doing that day ... people went home, picked up their kids from school, and hugged them and kept them close," he says. "Just hearing [their] stories ... it's interesting to find out what everyone was doing on that day."
    There are still questions that may never be answered, and survivor's guilt is ever-present.
    "I don't understand all of it," he says. "Why did I survive and 61 of my colleagues didn't?"
    For DiFrancesco, though, one message is clear.
    "When your number is up, He will call you. Coming so close to death, I believe you can't change destiny," he says. "Be happy with every day we have here."

    "This extraordinary CBC drama was based on Anne Collins’ prize-winning 1989 book In the Sleep Room: The Story of CIA Brainwashing Experiments in Canada. Collins exposed Cameron’s 1930s-1940s history of ethically unsupportable experiments on psychiatric patients. Many of the people methodically abused by Cameron had entered the Institute suffering only from mild disorders such as anxiety and post-partum depression. By the time they were released from the Sleep Room torture chamber, many had decades of memory completely wiped out. Some did not remember their children and even had to relearn bladder and bowel control. ...
    During this same era, U.S. psychiatric patients were also victimized. Harold Blauer, a patient in the New York Psychiatric Institute, died in 1953 shortly after being injected with a highly toxic dose of methyl-diamphetamine (MDA), a derivative of mescaline. Blauer had entered the hospital suffering from depression after a divorce. He had made progress solely with the talking cure. Blauer did not know that his psychiatrist, Paul Hoch, was a CIA consultant secretly under contract with the Army’s Edgewood Arsenal chemical/biological warfare lab. This contract was negotiated through the New York State Department of Mental Hygiene, which allowed trusting hospital patients to be used as part of the Army’s search for "potential chemical warfare agents....
    The Blauer case reveals a direct lineage between Nazi research projects and the MKULTRA program. Mescaline was tested on concentration camp inmates during the Third Reich’s search for a "truth serum."13 These and other Nazi experiments were intensively studied by U.S. military scientists in occupied Germany. Under the CIA’s Operation Paperclip, 1600 German and Austrian scientists were secretly brought to the U.S. Some had worked for I.G.

Many were being investigated for war crimes when they were rescued by a government intent on using their knowledge and expertise in the Cold War against the Communist Eastern Bloc. Hundreds of chemists and other scientists were given jobs at Edgewood Arsenal, which supplied the drugs, chemicals and poisons for the CIA’s counterespionage and assassination programs during the Korean and Vietnam wars, as well as covert interventions in the affairs of many Third World nations""

    "..born 7 November 1928) is a private investigator and a former high-ranking agent of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation[1]. Among his high-profile cases, the case of Jeffrey R. MacDonald who was convicted of the Fatal Vision murders stands out more than others due to Gunderson's effort to prove MacDonald's conviction as unsafe. Gunderson is also known for his belief in—and investigation of—criminal conspiracies involving cults run by government officials...
    Post-FBI Investigations and Career
    After retiring from the FBI, Gunderson set up a private investigation firm, Ted L. Gunderson and Associates, in Santa Monica.[3] In 1980, he became a defense investigator for Green Beret Jeffrey R. MacDonald, convicted of the 1970 murders of his pregnant wife and two daughters. Gunderson obtained affidavits from Helena Stoeckley[4] confessing to her involvement in the murders. His tactics in obtaining the affidavits have been criticized. The courts have been unwilling to find Stoeckley's statements believable due to the following facts: that there is no physical evidence of Stoeckley or of the conspirators whom she has named at the crime scene; that she made numerous confessions and also statements of non-involvement; and that statements in her confessions are at odds with known facts (e.g., she named an individual who was in jail at the time of the murders as a fellow participant). Jeffery MacDonald's conviction stands and he remains imprisoned.
    Stoeckley further stated in her confessions to Gunderson that a satanic cult she was involved in were responsible for the murders. This was the beginning of Gunderson's beliefs (and statements) concerning satanic cults involving government officials.
    Gunderson believes that Satanic cults engage in widespread child kidnapping for the purpose of child sexual abuse and ritual murder, and that these activities involve high-ranking government officials and/or the Illuminati. He credits William Guy Carr's Pawns in the Game with opening his eyes to the plans of the Illuminati.[5]

  • American's Journey: Rush Limbaugh admits he believes Osama bin Laden is dead on todays show - plus Thom Hartmann DRG interview - so what is the mission in AFPAKistan?, from 12.01.2009

  • "...Today - on an AM station here in Charlottesville, Virginia at 13:29 Rush said he believes bin Laden is dead - killed at Tora Bora. This was during a rant to his flock saying something to the effect that one should vote Republican and not consider switching to the independent party because third parties are just people standing in a room together shouting while getting nothing done. So, Rush, let's hear you educate us some more from your excellence in bullshitting network - what is the mission in Afghanistan? What is the mission in the AFPAK war? Are they the same? By the way - how is "getting nothing done" different from what is going on now? By 'nothing' I refer to the interests of the non-super-rich in America. You'll never hear answers to these questions on Rush's propagandathon - just like you'll never hear any complete truths or facts from him. His show is light on facts - heavy on red meat blather.
    Another AM radio propaganda show, starring right wing shill Fred Thompson, attempted to blame this nightmare on Obama. While answering a caller he said Democrats can't keep bringing up the past - "lead" he said as he referred to Obama taking over the Bushies war in Afghanistan - which - remember - was to "smoke'em out" (bin Laden). Whew - after all those years of guys just like him blaming Clinton for everything under the sun this idiotic blather almost made me puke. I guess we'll have to wait for Obama to tell us the reason our troops need to spend Christmas fighting in an unconquerable land.
    Consider this NY times article CLICK HERE where we see the original excuses we were given to embark on a disaster:
    "But we're going to smoke them out," he said.
    "The Taleban," he said, referring to the fundamentalist rulers of Afghanistan, "must take my statements seriously."
    Mr. Bush, who visited the Pentagon as military planners were preparing call-up orders for 35,000 reservists, said the military was prepared to pay "any cost" as it mounted a long and difficult campaign against terror.
    His comments appeared in part spontaneous, reflecting a rage that seems to have been building for days, and that aides say was stoked by the horror he witnessed Friday on his visit to New York. "I want justice," he said. "There's an old poster out West that said, 'Wanted, dead or alive."
    Later in the same article:
    "Secretary of State Colin Powell said that "all roads lead to" Mr. bin Laden as the man behind the four hijackings that yielded the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York, the attack on the Pentagon and a death total exceeding 5,000.
    He praised Pakistan for sending envoys to demand that the Taleban government in Afghanistan, which believed to be sheltering Mr. bin Laden, hand him over."
    Seems pretty clear to me that the Republicans started this mess what is the mission in AFPAKistan? back to the radio...
    A left-wing show host, Stephanie Miller, reacted a little to the news that Obama is sending more of our troops to die for some undefinable reason, but the show was so infantile I just turned it off. I'm sorry Stephanie - I know you have to appeal to your audience - and I know you have to get ratings - but by Jupiter your gonna' have to get tough on these "statesmen" or we're all gonna' go down together. Maybe I'm overestimating the audience. Don't know. I will say Stephanie sounded a bit stunned and at a loss when grasping for reasons to continue supporting our new rock star prez. Maybe the "rock" in his star is in reference to the terrain of Afghanistan. Oh well, I can't get too harsh with Stephanie - after all she called for the execution of sh*tbaugh - on Larry King. Click here where she's beat up for making this comment which was probably a joke. Hell I thought it was funny. My problem with her call for his execution is I didn't hear anything about a trial first. what is the mission in Afghanistan? I've stated in the past that Osama bin Laden has been dead since 2001. Not too long ago people like myself were laughed at for making such assertions based on the research done by David Ray Griffin in his book Osama bin Laden Dead or Alive?

    Finally - I heard a bit of the beginning of the Thom Hartmann show - he stated that he isn't giving up on Obama yet. Geez Thom - what on Earth is it going to take? I will, however, say thanks to Thom Hartmann for showing the courage to conduct the following interview of David Ray Griffin which I suggest you listen to. There are more like it - see No Lies radio link on left side of this page. Here's the Hartmann interview - thanks again Thom.

  • Bin Laden Warns US Not to Execute Terrorists Updated: 19 hours 11 minutes ago (Friday, March 26th of 2010) Michelle Ruiz Contributor

  • "(March 25) -- Osama bin Laden leveled a new threat against the U.S. in an audio recording released today, saying al-Qaida will kill American captives if the U.S. executes Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or other terror suspects in its custody. Bin Laden named Mohammed specifically in the 74-second recording aired on Al-Jazeera television. "The White House announced they intend to sentence them to death," he said on the recording. "When the U.S. takes that decision, it means they will take a decision that any hostage who falls in our hands will be sentenced to death."

    The U.S. is weighing whether to try Mohammed and four alleged accomplices in a military tribunal or a civilian court, sparking debate and varying degrees of support regarding the location of a potential civilian trial. A decision is expected soon. Mohammed is charged with murder and war crimes and is being held at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
    It remains unclear whether there are any U.S. captives in al-Qaida custody. In December, the Haqqani group of the Pakistan-based Taliban faction released a video of a U.S. soldier they captured in Afghanistan in June.
    Bin Laden also said U.S. President Barack Obama, like his predecessor George W. Bush, was being "unjust" to al-Qaida prisoners and condemned him for escalating the war in Afghanistan.
    "The leaders in the White House have been practicing oppression on us and they still do," he said. "They think the U.S. behind the oceans is in safety from the anger of the oppressed. Until the strong reaction in your homeland on the 11th of September. Happy is the one who has been forewarned. The treatment should be equal."
    The White House did not immediately comment on the audiotape.

  • Osama bin Laden is dead, Obama says By the CNN Wire Staff May 2, 2011 1:09 a.m. EDT

  • "(CNN) -- The mastermind of the worst terrorist attack on American soil is dead, U.S. President Barack Obama announced late Sunday night, almost 10 years after the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people.
    Osama bin Laden -- the longtime leader of al Qaeda -- was killed by U.S. forces in a mansion outside the Pakistani capital of Islamabad along with other family members, a senior U.S. official told CNN.
    In an address to the nation late Sunday night, Obama called bin Laden's death "the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al Qaeda."
    Up-to-the-minute updates on bin Laden | President's statement
    "Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan," Obama said. "A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body."
    U.S. diplomatic facilities around the world were placed on high alert following the announcement of bin Laden's death, a senior U.S. official said, and the U.S. State Department should be sending out a new "worldwide caution" for Americans shortly. Some fear al Qaeda supporters may try to retaliate against U.S. citizens or U.S. institutions.
    U.S. issues travel warnings
    Hundreds of people arrived at the White House late Sunday night and chanted, "USA! USA!" They then chanted, "Hey, hey, goodbye!" in reference to the demise of bin Laden and then spontaneously sang the national anthem.
    "This welcome news is a credit to our intelligence efforts and brings to justice the architect of the attacks on our country that killed nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, the ranking Republican on the Homeland Security Committee, in a statement issued Sunday night.
    Osama bin Laden, the face of terror
    The news brought some relief to the grieving family members of those killed on 9/11.
    "This is important news for us, and for the world. It cannot ease our pain, or bring back our loved ones," Gordon Felt, president of Families of Flight 93, said in a statement. "It does bring a measure of comfort that the mastermind of the September 11th tragedy and the face of global terror can no longer spread his evil."
    In his speech, Obama reiterated that the United States is not at war with Islam.
    Celebrations in front of the White House Video
    "I've made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims."
    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, released a statement Monday morning welcoming the death of bin Laden.
    "As we have stated repeatedly since the 9/11 terror attacks, bin Laden never represented Muslims or Islam In fact, in addition to the killing of thousands of Americans, he and Al Qaeda caused the deaths of countless Muslims worldwide," the statement said. "We also reiterate President Obama's clear statement tonight that the United States is not at war with Islam."

  • Hoax: White House Claims 4-Year-Old Bin Laden Video Is New Footage Paul Joseph Watson Infowars Saturday, May 7, 2011

  • "In a desperate effort to bolster its crumbling official narrative, the White House today released a set of dubious Bin Laden “home movies” purportedly seized from his compound during the raid on Sunday night that it claims show Bin Laden on camera in 2010, but the tapes are almost identical to footage released almost four years ago by a notorious Pentagon front group that acts as a conduit for US intelligence by regularly releasing fake Al-Qaeda videos.
    Before we even look at the new tapes, recall that the Washington Post reported last year on how CIA officials recruited “darker-skinned employees” to create fake Bin Laden tapes. The fact that the CIA created fake Bin Laden tapes is an admitted fact, not a conspiracy theory.
    "Extraordinary home videos taken from Osama bin Laden’s hideout show the terrorist leader watching news coverage of himself on television,” reports the Daily Mail.
    "The videos were seized by Navy SEALs after Bin Laden was killed. They were shown to reporters this afternoon by intelligence officials.”
    One of the videos purports to show Bin Laden watching television news reports about himself. The footage is filmed from almost behind his head and only shows a small portion of his face. The TV shows footage of Bin Laden as well as still images and footage of Barack Obama. Interestingly, the only moment in which the cameraman zooms in on the TV so that you can clearly see the picture is when it either shows Bin Laden, Obama, or both of them in a still shot together........."

    Mysterious Deaths of 9/11 Witnesses (MUST SEE)

    "So many 9/11 witnesses or people who would seem to have knowledge of the cover up have been mysteriously dying. This all can't be a coincidence."



  • Where was God on 9/11?� How a British journalist was able to answer this question at Ground Zero By Patrick Reilly Special to ASSIST News Service Monday, September 10, 2007

  • "NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK (ANS) -- Along with millions of other around the world I witnessed the 9/11 terror attacks live on my home TV screen. What my eye�s were witnessing, my brain struggled to process as I saw the scenes of horror; the souls trapped in the towering inferno of the Twin Towers above the point of impact; their only way of escape from the intense heat was to leap from the windows knowing that they would not survive the quarter of a mile drop to earth.
    I remember falling to my knees in front of the screen stunned by what I saw and with tears in my eye�s all I could pray was, �Oh Jesus.�
    As a news journalist working then for UCB Europe (now UCB UK), the hours, days, and weeks that followed were intense as we, as a team tried, to report the devastation with a Christian perspective.
    Even in the early day�s so many people asked me the same question, �Where was God on 9/11?� I never doubted His presence that day, but I tried to imagine myself being one of the thousands of people desperate to flee the buildings of the World Trade Center in New York on that bright and beautiful sunny morning.
    I believe that many of them would have cried out to the Lord and, in doing so, He heard their feeble prayer as he did with the thief who hung on a cross next to Him.
    The question, �Where was God on 9/11?� was constantly resounding in my head and in my heart and soul and with it came the desire grew to visit lower Manhattan and the place that we came to know as Ground Zero to try and discover the answer for myself.
    Peter Wooding, my news editor at UCB, supported my request to make the journey and on Monday, November 12, two months after the towers collapsed, it was agreed to.
    When I heard the news, my mind was all over the place thinking of my mission in New York while still trying to prepare and present the hourly news bulletins.
    Working on the late shift, I was preparing the 3:00 PM news report when the news began to filter through that American Airlines Flight 587 had crashed on takeoff from JFK airport in the borough of Queens in New York City and 246 passengers and nine crew members had perished. In the minds and hearts of millions around the world it initially appeared that the terrorists had struck again.
    Walking through the UCB reception area after reading the news, Teresa, a dear friend and sister in the Lord, stopped me. Having heard through the UCB grapevine that they had agreed to my trip to, she asked me sincerely, �Patrick, aren�t you frightened of going to New York with all that�s happening there?�
    I paused for a moment and closed my eyes, searching for an answer, which came almost immediately. �Sister Teresa,� I said, �in Him I live and move and have my being. I will die when my time is up not before.� With that a peace filled my whole being.
    I planned my trip to coincide with the third month anniversary and persuaded David, a brother in Christ, to accompany me.
    Pastor Mike MacIntosh preaching (Photo: Dan Wooding) Two day�s before our departure, I received an email on my work desk from Pastor Mike McIntosh, senior pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego, California. Although I had never met him, he had heard of my trip through Dan Wooding and suggested in his email that, when I got to New York, I should meet Detective Carlos Aviles of the NYPD. �He�s doing an amazing work at Ground Zero� Mike wrote. That was it. No contact details.
    I fired back an email thanking him and asking for more details, like a phone number, but nothing came back even though I hung around the production office on my last day after my shift had finished.
    I filed the email along with several reports I had printed off for research and on December 5, 2001, I took off from London�s Heathrow airport bound for Manhattan with my friend, David.
    During the flight, I read through my research files and came across a report from the Bible Society. In it was an interview with Neil Wain, a British Christian police officer who had been caught up in the awful events of 9/11. I naively thought that it would be good to meet him and also Detective Aviles.
    Once David and I had checked into our hotel, we decide not to go straight to where the towers had stood but instead to stay around mid Manhattan.
    Walking through the crowds in Times Square, it was hard to believe that just a few miles south of where we were was the scene of the worst act of terrorism that the world had ever witnessed; a vile act that had claimed the lives of thousands of innocent people. However, it seemed to me that New Yorkers were instead, concentrating on the Christmas holidays.
    On our first full day in the city, we walked east and not far from our hotel, we came across the Bellevue Hospital Center. We noticed that the side street had been cordoned off and was lined with marquees and Portacabins. Introducing myself as a Christian journalist to one of the police officers standing behind the barrier, he went and fetch a Catholic priest who invited us into a prayer tent where he was about to lead a service. When we had entered the tent the priest told us that nearby a temporary mortuary had been set up.
    Following the service, that included prayers for the victim, their relatives and all those involved, the priest walked with us down the street. As we passed the Portacabins on both our left and right, we realized what they were being used for why the signs on the doors. They included, �Dental Services� and �DNA Analysis.�
    At the bottom of the street, on the right hand side, we stopped and stared and several mobile refrigerators, which we soon realized contained the remains of many of the victims.
    After an hour or so, we said our goodbyes, but before we left, I showed Mike McIntosh�s email to several officers. �Do you know where I could find Detective Aviles?� I asked. They all sympathetically replied, �No.�
    We had been in New York City for three whole days and the only thing I had recorded on my MiniDisc was a sound check. Fear and doubt began to try to take a grip of me. �Who do you think you are to take on something of this magnitude?� I asked myself.
    David and I made our way on foot down Broadway heading towards Ground Zero.
    We found the Mayor�s office and I stopped to ask the police officer on duty outside about Detective Aviles. Reading Mike McIntosh�s email, he handed it back to me and my heart sank when he said, �Look, you�re in a city with 41,000 police officers deployed all over the place. I wish you well but you�re looking for a needle in a haystack.�
    We made our way back onto Broadway and soon came across a group of hundreds of people standing in virtual silence, many of them with tears in their eyes. Following their gaze beyond a police cordon, we saw for the first time, the skeletal remains of one of the towers that I had only seen on TV.
    I tried to interview people in the crowd but for so many the emotions of what they were looking at made it impossible for them to speak to me.
    Feeling absolutely devastated by the scene in front of me, and the fact that I had failed to interview anyone, I put my MiniDisc away and began handing out tracts with the title, �Is December the 25th the answer to September 11?� It was written by the Rev. Paul Bassett who compared the two dates; one of darkness and death, the other of light and life. I handed out nearly 500 of them during my stay in New York.
    Walking a little further down Broadway, we stopped outside St Paul�s Chapel where we saw, attached to the railings outside, were messages of support from around the world. The hundreds of burning candles gave the place a shrine like atmosphere.
    The Chapel had opened its doors after the attacks and became a refuge and home to hundreds of recovery workers who were still sifting through the thousands of tons of rubble that still covered the sixteen-acre site of death and destruction.
    Walking a little further, we came across a group of Christians huddled together in a door way. They were praising and praying, so we stopped to join them in their worship. I then began talking with the group about my sense of failure, and they laid their hands on me and prayed that the Lord would guide me. There and then, I felt the heaviness leave me.
    David and decide to walk further and, turning off Broadway, we found ourselves walking through almost deserted streets and alleyways.
    Almost an hour after we had left the prayer group, we walked passed St Joseph�s Chapel. The lights were blazing and so we decided to see what was going on inside. David lagged behind, tired from the day�s walking, so as I stepped into the entrance and as I did, a man began walking out with his mobile phone in his hand. He stopped and extended his arm to greet me. �Hi, my name is Carlos,� he said. As I shook his hand, I noticed his police badge hanging from the top pocket of his jacket. It read, �Detective Aviles.�
    I cautiously asked, �Are you Detective Carlos Aviles?� He replied in his thick New York accent, �Yeah.� I then showed him Mike McIntosh�s email and told him of my quest to find him and, with that, he threw his arms around me with a wonderful hug. We danced and praised God for the miracle of our meeting. Ian Otto (a British police officer), Patrick Reilly, Carlos Aviles and Neil Wain in New York
    In my sheer excitement I blurted out to Carlos the name of the British police officer I had read about. �His name is Bruce Wain�� and before I could finish, he said, �You mean, Neil Wain� I have just been speaking to him on the phone.� Tears of pure joy filled my eyes as within moments I was talking to Neil on the cell phone.
    We arranged to meet a couple of days later.
    St Joseph is, like St Paul's, had became a 24/7 Respite Center for the thousands of workers at Ground Zero. It was staffed by a dedicated team of Christian volunteers from all over the United States and beyond. Inside there were rest areas, a bank of PC�s connected to the Internet so that workers could keep in contact with their loved ones, and a dining area.
    It was also a place of prayer and ministry which many of the workers came to love and cherish. One of the guys we meet and prayed with had volunteered to work on the site in the hope that he could find his son, missing since the towers fell. The presence of the Lord was very real.
    With a new zeal and confidence, I began to record some of the most wonderful testimonies. One of the first was with Catherine Roskam, a Bishop in the Episcopal Church on Broadway. I asked the obvious question, "Where was God on 9/11?" and she replied with grace and conviction, �God was right in the midst of it. We saw 19 people who gave their lives to bring death and destruction, but they were met by hundreds who gave their lives so that others might live.
    All over the city, wherever we went, we met Christians with the love of Christ pouring out of them as they brought hope and healing to the traumatised city and its residents.
    9/11 hero, Giann Gamboa
    Among the thousands of posters of people who were still missing, was one of one of Giann Gamboa, a manager at the Top of the World Restaurant. Giann was a devout Christian who regularly attended the 6:00 AM prayer service with other members of staff. He was a man of faith who would pray with colleagues if he knew they were in distress. He was last seen waiting for an elevator on the 78th floor of Tower 2 at the World Trade Center. He gave his place to a young female colleague. As the doors closed, he was heard to reassuringly say, �I�ll get the next one.� Giann believed with all his heart that no man has greater love than this than he lay down his life for his friends. That was the last time he was seen ever seen again.
    During my week in New York, I recorded hours of interviews and all those confirmed that the Lord was with them.
    During another miraculous visit into the heart of Ground Zero, I felt the presence of the Lord in the shape of a twenty foot steel cross that was discovered by a construction worker in the midst of the rubble two days after the collapse.
    That cross came to symbolize God�s presence and every day the workers would gather for prayer, praise and worship, focusing on the hope that the cross of Christ that has not brought the death and destruction surrounding them.
    Today all these years on, I am still asked the question, "Where was God on 9/11?" and I, along with tens of thousands of others, can truthfully testify for certain that He was there all along.

  • # 24 Japan Questions 9/11 and the Global War on Terror,

  • "Source: and Rock Creek Free Press, January 14, 2008
    Title: “Transcript Of Japanese Parliament’s 911 Testimony”
    Author: Benjamin Fulford

    Student Researchers: Kyle Corcoran, Alan Scher, Bill Gibbons, and Elizabeth Rathbun
    Faculty Evaluator: Mickey S. Huff, MA
    Testimony in the Japanese parliament, broadcast live on Japanese television in January 2008, challenged the premise and validity of the Global War on Terror. Parliament member Yukihisa Fujita insisted that an investigation be conducted into the war’s origin: the events of 9/11.
    In a parliament Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee session held to debate the ethics of renewing Japan’s “anti-terror law,” which commits Japan to providing logistical support for coalition forces operating in Afghanistan, Fujita opened the session by stating, “I would like to talk about the origin of this war on terrorism, which was the attacks of 9/11, . . . When discussing these anti-terror laws we should ask ourselves, what was 9/11? And what is terrorism?”
    Fujita pointed out that, “So far the only thing the government has said is that we think it was caused by al-Qaeda because President Bush told us so. We have not seen any real proof that it was al-Qaeda.” He reminded parliament that twenty-four Japanese citizens were killed on 9/11, yet the mandate of a criminal investigation by the Japanese government never followed. “This is a crime so surely an investigation needs to be carried out,” said Fujita (Censored 2008, #16).
    Fujita went on extensively to ask “about the suspicious information being uncovered and the doubts people worldwide are having about the events of 9/11.”
    The Japanese parliament viewed several slides from the Pentagon and World Trade Center (WTC) sites as Fujita explained each. The slides showed evidence inconsistent with official explanation: damage in and around the Pentagon was not consistent with the damage a 757 airplane would cause. Fujita noted, “Also, there were more than eighty security cameras at the Pentagon, but officials have refused to release the footage. In any case, as you have just seen, there is no picture of the airplane or of its wreckage in any of these photographs. It is very strange that no such pictures have been shown to us.” A US Air Force official corroborated the fact that the plane executed a U-turn and avoided the Defense Secretary’s office, a feat that would be impossible for an unskilled first-time pilot to maneuver; and no air defense was made in the ninety-minute interval between the initial impact of the planes at the WTC and the Pentagon. Fujita added, “It is baffling that no flight records were found at any of four sites.” On the ground at the WTC sites, both sounds and visual evidence from explosions were verified. Flying debris shot out as far as 150 meters consistent with buildings exploding. A New York fireman during rescue operations confirmed that a series of explosions resembled a professional demolition, and a Japanese survivor heard explosions while fleeing the site. The World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7), forty-seven stories high and located one block away, collapsed into its footprint, seven hours after the main WTC buildings were attacked, in five or six seconds, although no plane struck it and it had minimal fire damage. Not only did the 9/11 Commission fail to mention WTC 7, but the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) made no mention of it in their reports.
    Fujita went on to detail proof of insider trading from September 6 through 8, when investors executed “put options” to sell stock in United and American Airlines at a fixed price. Finance specialist Keiichiro Asao responded with confirmation that such complex transaction would be the work of insiders rather than al-Qaeda.
    Fujita then addressed Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, “I would like to know why the Prime Minister thinks it was the Taliban who was responsible for 9/11.” He continued, “We need to go back to the beginning and not just simply and blindly trust the US government explanation and indirect information provided by them. . . . We need to look at this evidence and ask ourselves what the war on terrorism really is. . . . We need to ask who the real victims of this war on terrorism are. I think the citizens of the world are its victims.”
    “Prime Minister,” Fujita continued, “what about the origin of the War on Terror and the idea of whether it is right or wrong to participate in it? Is there really a reason to participate in this War on Terror?”
    Fujita received support for concluding that the reason for participating in the US War on Terror needs to be investigated and analyzed. Opposition blocked the extension of Japan’s anti-terror law and colleagues acknowledged his bravery with congratulatory phone calls.
    This came to an end in mid-January when, after months of parliamentary debates and the opposition of at least 50 percent of the Japanese public, Fukuda rammed the anti-terror bill through parliament. After the bill was voted down by opposition in the Upper House plenary session on January 12, the government resubmitted it later that same day to the Lower House, where the ruling conservative party holds the majority, and turned a bill into a law. Thus, they overturned a veto in the Upper House.
    This is the first time in half a century that a Japanese government has resorted to such tactics—deemed a drastic measure by Japanese standards.1
    According to Christopher W. Hughes, professor of politics and international studies at University of Warwick, “Fukuda’s government was under a lot of US pressure to re-deploy ships, and even if he was always somewhat doubtful about the importance of the mission in military terms and the whole US War on Terror, he perceived passing the bill as very important to US-Japan relations. This was also impressed upon him by a personal meeting with US President Bush.”

    If you still believe that the English language corporate media is free, take a look behind the scenes at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan (FCCJ) and think again.
    I was a member of that club for over two decades, but I had no clue about what it really represented until I tried to stage a press conference about 9/11. From that point on all sorts of nasty things started to happen and I suddenly realized the place seemed more like a nest of spies than a club for journalists.
    For example, people I did not know tried to have me evicted from the club, e-mails vanished from my inbox before I got to read them, and people started to spread the word that I had mental issues.
    The list of insults to press freedom at the club since that initial conference is too long to write about in detail here, so I will merely cite the most recent example.
    Yukihisa Fujita, a member of parliament for the opposition Democratic Party, in a parliamentary debate broadcast nationwide on NHK, asked Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda about many of the glaring discrepancies in the official US government explanation of what happened on 9/11. A member of parliament in Japan, a US ally, showed powerful evidence on national TV that the US government murdered 3,000 of its own citizens as well as people from Japan and many other nations. I suggested we call him for a press conference, and nine working journalists—representing a potential audience of billions—agreed. Usually, only three or more yes votes from working journalists is enough for an event to go ahead. Despite this, the Wall Street Journal’s James Sims, head of the Professional Activities Committee (PAC), in confederation with FCCJ President Martyn Williams, vetoed the event even though it was subject matter that they, as technical journalists, do not cover. They vetoed it in violation of Article 3 of the club bylaws that call for press freedom. Not only that, they kicked me off the PAC in a blatant attempt to shut me up.
    Fujita has since been invited to speak to the EU parliament and many other venues. Fujita has been given a chance to ask more questions in parliament, and many Japanese news magazines have written about his activities. Books about 9/11 are also selling well in Japan. A growing group of Japanese politicians has become aware of what really happened on that day. The Japanese government itself actually knows the truth and is starting to affect the US–Japan alliance in fundamental ways. The Japanese government’s formal replies to Fujita’s questions show it is becoming increasingly suspicious that the US government murdered over twenty Japanese citizens. The long-term repercussions for US security could be huge. "

  • Iran's Ahmadinejad: Sept. 11 attacks a 'big lie', By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer Ali Akbar Dareini, Associated Press Writer – Sat Mar 6, 1:50 pm ET

  • "TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday called the official version of the Sept. 11 attacks a "big lie" used by the U.S. as an excuse for the war on terror, state media reported...
    "September 11 was a big lie and a pretext for the war on terror and a prelude to invading Afghanistan," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state TV. He called the attacks a "complicated intelligence scenario and act."
    ..In 2007, New York officials rejected Ahmadinejad's request to visit the World Trade Center site while he was in the city for a U.N. meeting. The president also sparked an uproar when he said during a lecture in New York that the causes and conditions that led to the attacks, as well as who orchestrated them, still need to be examined.
    At the time, he also told Iranian state TV the attacks were "a result of mismanaging and inhumane managing of the world by the U.S," and that Washington was using Sept. 11 as an excuse to attack others.
    He has also questioned the Sept. 11 death toll of around 3,000, claiming the Americans never published the victims' names.
    On the 2007 anniversary of the attacks, the names of 2,750 victims killed in New York were read aloud at a memorial ceremony."
