Week of Truth - April 16 - April 22, 2008

April 16th - April 22nd was designated the “Week of Truth” in a concerted grassroots campaign by 9/11 Truth activists to break 9/11 Truth into the national dialogue by pushing a compelling work of fiction, The Shell Game to the top of the New York Times Bestseller list and get the author, Steve Alten, back on national television and radio shows. It might be easier to herd cats than to get a large, diverse, growing movement to focus on any one particular action. The movement is not monolithic and there are distinct disagreements on many aspects of 9/11, although even government officials are finally beginning to come to the consensus that the official 9/11 Report was a massive lie or cover-up and that, there has yet to be a genuine investigation into the crime of the attacks that took place on September 11th 2001. By happy synchronicity, one of the best spokespeople of the 9/11 Truth Movement, Dr. David Ray Griffin, has also recently published a book- 9/11 Contradictions- An Open Letter to Congress and the Press. The book has been sent to Congressional Representatives, as well as to Senators and succinctly outlines 25 major contradictions within the official story, which together demonstrate that, by definition, a story with so many internal contradictions is an “outrageous” conspiracy theory, which should not be tolerated by honest journalists or public servants. As The Shell Game has moved up on Amazon charts, so has 9/11 Contradictions.

In a peer reviewed Journal on Civil Engineering, an excellent article entitled “Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction” by Steven E. Jones, Frank M. Legge, Kevin R. Ryan, Anthony F. Szamboti, James R. Gourley was just published. The article notes surprising areas of agreement between the NIST and FEMA Reports and their critics and counters popular myths about the destruction of the buildings.

In the U.K, The Elephant in the Room, a documentary on the 9/11 Truth Movement, was awarded Best British Documentary at the London Independent Film Festival. Zero- Inquiry into September 11th, a documentary into 9/11 by Giulietto Chiesa was shown to the public, after a screening for the press and the European Parliament. The Truth Movement has become international.

The Reflecting Pool an investigative, narrative film brings to light the basic facts about 9/11, and the processes used to discredit journalists and censor inconvenient information which threaten the legitimacy of governments.

Today, an article came out in the New York Times, entitled “Message Machine- Behind Analysts, the Pentagon’s Hidden Hand- A Pentagon Campaign Retired officers have been used to shape terrorism coverage from inside the TV and radio networks” by David Barstow detailing, in part, a concerted effort by the Pentagon to woo military analysts/pundits to gain support for the war on Iraq. While the article detailed how many of the analysts were also financially benefiting from military contractors and the companies that they worked for, there was no mention of the New York Times blatant cheerleading for the war or the false and buried stories which shaped public opinion. Spin has crashed on the hard rock of reality. The smoke and mirrors used to create the illusion of a legitimate, benevolent government are wearing thin.

Steve Alten has written bestsellers before and specializes in the “horror” genre. He believes The Shell Game is the scariest book that he has ever written. The story opens with the plotting of a nuclear 9/11 at the highest levels within the US government. The fast moving plot witnesses a dramatic transformation of multiple players who try to avert World War III, through various means, including media, messaging and moving money from criminal accounts into a Presidential campaign promising an end to America’s oil addiction. At the beginning of each chapter, there are damning quotes from 9/11 Truth researchers and authors. The book champions the power of the individual to make a significant difference in a complex, challenging world. It encourages personal integrity, and heroism when extraordinary circumstances demand them from ordinary people.

Many fear that the current government might try to orchestrate or provoke an incident to expand the war into Iran, or to further the aims of the Security and Prosperity Partnership between Canada, the U.S., and Mexico to create a North American Union. Opposition to the war and against the SPP continues to grow, ignored by the corporate press, although today the leaders of Canada, the United States and Mexico are meeting in New Orleans, protests are taking place, and a People's Summit is being held.

Truth seems to be the greatest threat to the powers that be. Fear of a “Cyberterrorist Attack” is the cover for vast collusion between government and corporations to monitor and control cyber-space, the last refuge of free speech (besides the streets) since the corporate colonization of the major broadcast media- radio, television, and newspapers. One guy who realized that Comcast was blocking his emails forced the FCC to hold hearings on the Future of the Internet and whether it will be colonized in the manner of radio, television and newspapers. As the corporate media loses its credibility, many are jumping ship, and new media, in the public interest are being born. We have a window of opportunity in these challenging times to courageously speak out and champion our issues and causes, as all social movements are inextricably linked.

I became an activist because of a Hollywood flick, which prompted me to research the C.I.A.. I championed 9/11 Truth because I thought if we could expose it as a false flag operation, we could put an end to false flag terrorism and wars. I hope that those who read this article will check out the books and articles that are mentioned and, if possible support the Truth Movement. When the Truth Movement is fully integrated with the Peace and Justice Movement, we will succeed.
