This morning as I was flipping through channels in the wee hours something caught my eye on C-Span
. As part of a 9-11 "Remembrance" a group called Press for Truth
shared a podium at the National Press Club
with some of the "Jersey Girl" 9-11 Widows and another conspiracy theory group called 9-11 Citizens Watch
. Here is the agenda:
Details: On 5th Anniversary of the Attacks, Victims' Relatives to Challenge Credibility of 9/11 Report -- Say Case Merits New Investigation
Producers of 9/11: PRESS FOR TRUTH to Reveal Details of National Campaign
9/11 families and speakers TBA will join producers of a recently-released feature-length documentary "9/11: Press for Truth" at a press conference at 11AM on September 11th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.. Participants will highlight a growing body of evidence calling into question the credibility of the 9/11 Report and will demand a new investigation by a new Congress into the attacks of September 11th. Participants will also briefly comment on the speeches of Commissioners Kean and Hamilton following their remarks at the luncheon at directly following the event.
Producers of 9/11 Press for Truth released theatrically, on DVD and broadcast on international television over the anniversary will discuss response to the film following screenings in NYC, Washington DC, Chicago, Oakland, and over 20 other cities nationally over the 9/11 memorial weekend. Paul Thompson, author of The Terror Timeline (Harper-Collins), 9/11 family members and special guests will be in attendance to make brief statements and answer questions from the press. C-SPAN and other media outlets are invited to participate.
And that wasn't the only event of its kind. And look, our new friend Jim Marrs gets some airtime too!
Details: On the Fifth Anniversary of the Attacks and just three hours before the Kean-Hamilton luncheon address, the former top Air Force officer who won Florida's 15th District Democratic primary with 54% of the vote on an explicit platform to expose the fraud of the Kean Commission Report, and top 9/11 researchers, authors and activists will present hard proof that the official narrative of the Kean-Hamilton Commission and Bush-Cheney Administration is a fraud of world historic proportions.
Proposed legislation for a new and genuinely independent expert investigation, the first reality-based 9/11 feature film, and the International Grand Jury on the Crimes of 9/11 will be announced.
Speakers will make brief presentations and take questions from the press:
Dr. Robert Bowman, Lt. Col. USAF (Ret.), one of the nation's foremost authorities on national security, directed all 'Star Wars' programs under Presidents Ford and Carter, flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam, has a Ph.D .
in Aeronautics and Nuclear Engineering from Caltech, and has chaired eight international conferences. Dr. Bowman is the recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, and the Air Medal with five oak leaf clusters, among many others.
Jim Marrs, award-winning Texas journalist and author of the 9/11 expose Inside Job and just-released sequel The Terror Conspiracy, which includes "The Pentagon Attack Papers", is a former U.S. Army Intelligence officer.
He is the author of the New York Times Best Seller Crossfire, which was a basis for Oliver Stone's film "JFK", on which he served as a chief consultant.
He is working on a movie script whose final scene will awaken audiences
to the fact that 9/11 attacks were a mass assassination.
Barbara Honegger, former White House Policy Analyst to President Reagan and Senior military affairs journalist is the author of The Pentagon Attack Papers that has transformed the understanding of what happened inside the Pentagon on 9/11.
Ms. Honegger's seminal contributions on the central importance of plane-into-tower and hijack-scenario counter-terror exercises and wargames being run by the military and intelligence communities that morning explain core 'mysteries' the 9/11 Commission acknowledged it hadn't solved: How the date for the attacks was chosen, and why Mohammed Atta traveled to Portland, Maine.
Lynn Pentz, producer/creative director, breakthrough consultant, and grass-roots organizer, has been centrally involved in some of the largest transformation entertainment events of recent times, including Live Aid, Hands Across America, and the Bicentennial Celebration of the U.S. Constitution. Ms. Pentz is co-founder of 9/11 Truth Los Angeles, director of the film documentary "Connecting the Dots: Awakening to the Crimes of 9/11", and convener of the Citizens Grand Jury on 9/11. A national speaker in the 9/11 Truth movement, Ms. Pentz will announce the upcoming International People's Grand Jury on the Crimes of 9/11:
The Case to Indict."
Who's this rocket scientist and former Air Force Lt Colonel Robert Bowman
"I was a Bob Taft/ Barry Goldwater Republican. But the Republican party drifted away from me and other principled conservatives. The Nixon, Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II administrations have discarded fiscal conservatism, they have trampled on the Constitution, they have shredded the Bill of Rights, they have engaged in foreign adventurism on behalf of global robber barons. It got so bad that in 2000 I ran as a member of the Reform Party. But now it's even worse. It is no longer acceptable to quietly allow the Republican Party to be captive to the cynical "neo-conservatives" pulling W's strings. Bob Taft was often called an isolationist. He wasn't. He stood for international law and for the United States being a responsible sovereign member of the family of nations. Would he have lied to the American people to whip up support for an aggressive, illegal, unconstitutional war in the Middle East? Of course not! Barry Goldwater was a real pilot. He knew and loved the men and women in the Armed Services. Would he have sent them into an Iraqi quagmire for oil company profits? Of course not! Would any of the pillars of the Republican Party have exchanged a two hundred billion dollar surplus for a five hundred billion dollar deficit? Of course not! Who among us can call mortgaging the futures of our children and grandchildren 'conservatism'? Most importantly, conservatives always stood for the freedom and liberty of the American people, jealously guarding our rights under the Constitution. But now we have a Republican administration using their phony war on terrorism to spy on us, search our homes without a warrant, and lock us up without charge for months. Even those of us who aren't Muslim aren't safe. Merely voicing our disagreement with Cheney, Ashcroft, Rumsfeld, and the rest of the oil mafia can get us branded as potential terrorists and thrown into solitary confinement. It is simply no longer tolerable to have the party of Lincoln hijacked by these jackboot thugs masquerading as conservative Christians. Someone must step forward and offer an alternative." Note: The above challenge never happened, and Dr. Bowman has now given up on the Republican Party, at least until they rid themselves of Neo-Con Global Robber Baron control. Instead, Dr. Bowman re-registered as a Democrat, in spite of their failures at the national level.
Ah, he was a loyal conservative until Christians and "neo-cons" spoiled everything. Gotcha.
But now this Barbara Honegger used to work for Reagan, that surely should give us some pause!
Hmm, seems she wrote a book about the long discredited October Surprise Conspiracy
Isn't it funny how loyal citizens who stumble across these conspiracies get so good at finding new ones?
The upshot of all this is that the conspiracy nuts are now mainstream. The National Press Club having the audacity to host events like this on 9-11 itself sends a clear message that the media will do anything to derail the war on terror and rewrite the history of 9-11.
