Comment: This article is fairly typical of the way the mainstream media works to discredit any questioning of what really happened on 911: lump it together with other stories, notably one involving UFOs (we all know that they don't exist, right?).

In the fifteen months since our Pentagon Strike flash appeared, the shot heard round the world, the mainstream media has been forced to respond to those crazy people who think that 911 was an inside job. Call 'em crazy and let your other readers go back to sleep.

The Da Vinci Code figures here as a wildly popular book that puts forward a smokescreen: yes, there is something fishy, but then it leads the reader down the primrose path to bunk about Mary Magdalene. For another take on the real da Vinci code, see Laura's article on Fulcanelli and the True Da Vinci Code.

Yes, there are conspiracies out there. All of history is, very likely, one long conspiracy for which the events of 911 are the opening move of the end game, a move for complete control of the planet by a group of psychopaths.

Stay tuned.

Iran has expanded the tunnels it uses to hide a major part of its nuclear weapons program to a network covering a large area of southeastern Tehran, an Iranian exile who opposes that nation's Islamic government said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The public's belief that the United States should mind its own business internationally has reached levels not seen since after the Cold War ended more than a decade ago, a poll found.

Opinion leaders from various parts of society also are less likely to feel the U.S. should be the most assertive of the leading nations, according to the poll by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

Anxiety about the war in Iraq is likely a big reason for the shift in attitudes.

"What's striking is the common thread, both the opinion leaders favoring a less assertive role for the United States and the public's isolationist views," said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center. "This particular period of time marks a transition from the post-9/11 era."

Comment: While Americans were unaware of it (because it was deliberately hidden from them), U.S. governments have always been proactive in terms of launching agressive military campaigns around the world. The only difference is that, since 9/11, the reality of U.S. government foreign policy has been shoved in the public's face, and a majority of average Americans are realising that they are none too keen to suport such illegal and immoral acts.

All of the Bush administration's junkyard dogs are out on the attack, feigning righteous indignation that anyone would suggest that they manipulated the intelligence and misled the American people.

Of course, that is exactly what they did, and a majority of Americans are finally catching on. That doesn't absolve Congress from lazily going along and giving the president the OK to get American boys killed. The question is, Did the president do it deliberately, or was he just so intent on going to war that his mind automatically cherry-picked the conflicting information? We might never know.

Comment: The actual death count for US troops in Iraq is much higher than the statistic cited here. Soldiers who are flown out of Iraq for hospitalization in Germany, but who subsequently die, are not counted in as having "died in Iraq".

The actual figure is probably closer to 8,000. Of course, that pales in comparison with the number of Iraqis murdered by US troops.

We now know the US also used thermobaric weapons in its assault on Falluja, where up to 50,000 civilians remained

The media couldn't have made a bigger pig's ear of the white phosphorus story. So, before moving on to the new revelations from Falluja, I would like to try to clear up the old ones. There is no hard evidence that white phosphorus was used against civilians. The claim was made in a documentary broadcast on the Italian network RAI, called Falluja: the Hidden Massacre. It claimed that the corpses in the pictures it ran "showed strange injuries, some burnt to the bone, others with skin hanging from their flesh ... The faces have literally melted away, just like other parts of the body. The clothes are strangely intact." These assertions were supported by a human-rights advocate who, it said, possessed "a biology degree".

TIKRIT, Iraq (Reuters) - U.S. troops were handing over some of Saddam Hussein's former palaces to Iraqi forces on Tuesday in a ceremony attended by the American ambassador when two mortar rounds landed a few hundred meters away.

Comment: If Iraqi civilians were not still being slaughtered by the dozen by American forces, the image of a "handover" ceremony to Iraqi forces by their US counterparts as a couple of mortar rounds explode nearby would be comical.

But don't worry about the details, just listen to good 'ol Rummy when he tells you:

"the situation in Iraq has been improving in that it has gone from a country with a repressive and murderous dictator to a country that has elected its own parliament, fashioned its own constitution and is preparing for free elections under that new constitution on December 15."

Forget completely about the fact that the country is in a much worse state than it was under the "repressive and murderous dictator", with at least 100,000 Iraqi civilian dead and counting. Wipe from your mind the insignificant detail that the Iraqi parliament is controlled by the US government and has no power to force the US military to leave the new "sovereign Iraqi state", constitution or no constitution. Studiously ignore the point that the Iraqi voting system was designed by US government officials and is therefore fraudulent.

Tony Blair has condemned those who blame British foreign policy for domestic terrorism, saying it was "absurd" to suggest that the murder of innocent people could be justified by anger over the Iraq war.

Speaking at his twice-yearly grilling by the House of Commons liaison committee, Mr Blair said that he had "absolutely no doubt" that extremists would use the excuse of Western foreign policy in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine or Chechnya as a justification for their terrorist activities.

The idea that you can possibly justify killing innocent people on the London Underground or London buses by reference to what is happening in Iraq or Palestine is absurd," he said.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: So, according to Blair, it is absurd to claim that the murder of innocent people by one group in one country could be used as justificaion for the murder of innocent people by another group in another country. Or, to put it another way, Blair is saying that revenge for murder is an absurd motive with no justification. But let's get real here. If we accept the government line that "Islamic terrorists" carried out the London bombings, then the deaths of 100,000 Iraqi Muslim civilians at the hands of the US and British military can reasonably be seen as provocation for the attack on British civilians.

But of course, it wasn't Muslim terrorists that carried out the London bombings.

Comment: The gradual acceptence by Americans of the need for torture is an example of seduction by the psychopath. Torture is justified by scaring people into believing that a faceless enemy will attack them at home, and that they need to be stopped.

However, the faceless enemy is already at home.

Torture is torture. It cannot be justified. Justifying its use in "certain circumstances" is crossing the chasm into barbarity.

The head of the CIA waded into the debate over the treatment of detainees yesterday, saying it questioned prisoners in a "variety of unique and innovative ways" but did not torture them.

Porter Goss, director of the CIA, would not express an opinion on a Senate proposal to ban officers from "cruel, inhuman or degrading" treatment of detainees.

He added pointedly, however, that the techniques prohibited by such a ban had yielded vital intelligence in the fight against terrorism.

His intervention followed criticism of the vice president, Dick Cheney, who has argued that the CIA needs latitude when interrogating detainees who may know of an attack.

Lawrence Wilkerson, a former senior official in the State Department, accused Mr Cheney of providing the "philosophical guidance" and "flexibility" that led to the abuse of detainees in Iraq.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: 'Double-speak taken to ridiculous extremes' is the only way to describe Goss's comments. He claims that the CIA does not torture, but then adds that cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment of detainees had yielded results in the past, i.e. cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment has been used by the CIA in the past, from which we infer that cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment is not torture in Goss's book. Frankly, we believe him. Pyschopaths like Goss and Cheney probably have a capacity to dispassionately inflict harm on another human being that the average non-psychopathic citizen couldn't even begin to imagine. So from their point of view, kicking a prisoner until he dies from internal bleeding is nothing but "gentle coercion".

We agree wholeheartedly that Cheney, Rumsfeld, Goss etc have indeed provided the "philosophical guidance" for all of the abuses that have been carried out by the US military and intelligence agencies over the past 5 years. In that respect, they are very similar to Hitler and his associates, men whose philosophy was embraced by an entire nation in the 1930's and 40's and lead to the deaths of millions of innocent people.

Now there's something for every American patriot, not to mention every individual on the face of the planet, to look forward to.

Comment: Pollard, like so many others in the intelligence game, is a "useful idiot", someone who will do what he is told, but who is expendable, someone willing to die for the cause promoted by people who are getting rich from the cause.

Pollard is saying that he was not only a "spy", he was an "agent", that is an Israeli mole planted in a position to extract secrets from Israel's great buddy, the US. He is not the only one. But he is not a Feith, a Perle, a high-placed neo-con who can pull some strings and get by with a slap on the wrist.

There is little reason for anyone to be confused by the events leading up to the unraveling of America. All one has to do is ignore the rhetoric and simply follow the money to reveal the hidden mechanisms that are operating the American government.

Comment: Participation in politics in the US is declining, for many of the reasons Charles Sullivan gives above. The political process has been reduced to voting once every couple of years for people who in no way represent your ideas, your way of life, your needs, your fears.

However, money is only the visible aspect, and it is important to look behind the veil in order to understand the true dynamics at play. We accept that many of the great fortunes were made through ruthless methods. We have seen new fortunes made in recent years through the robbery of shareholders in companies such as Enron. Why is it that some people are able to be so ruthless and others are not? Why is it that some people can rob a grandmother without a second thought? Psychopathy.

They won't pull out troops from Iraq and they won't vote for any strategy that calls for immediate removal of United States occupation forces. Of course it took a Republican to put forth an "out-now" resolution, which was supposedly intended to split the Democrats. But the vote in the House late Friday didn't slice a wedge in the Democrat Party -- on the contrary, it united them behind a bloody and illegal occupation in Iraq. Of course this could well have been the Republican strategy all along.

Forty-two years ago, on Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas, Texas. In Bethesda, Maryland, this past weekend, a group of distinguished journalists, historians, scientists and others gathered to discuss and debate the evidence of conspiracy in the JFK case.

While the research community has often slammed the mainstream media for not covering the facts of the case, the blame must go both ways. The conference organizers offered no handouts, no summaries of what is new in the case this year, or any hook upon which a journalist might hang a story.

Click to Expand Article
Comment: Lisa Pease's closing words are the heart of the matter. When we accept the lie, we are submitting to the liars, placing ourselves at their disposal. Indeed, the Kennedy assassination was a turning point. Even those Americans who didn't believe the Warren Commission did nothing about it, demanded no accountability on the part of their elected officials.

The "yawning chasm between what we are told happened, and our true history" is a trap awaiting even the most sincere seeker who would turn his or her back on reality, on the true nature of our world.

Knowledge protects us. The most important knowledge we need is a complete an understanding as possible as to the workings of psychopathy. We need to look this opponent in the face, study its methods of work, the way it can charm an unsuspecting victim out of house and home, the way it can seduce an entire nation into rallying around an aggressive, illegal, and immoral war and restrictions on civil liberties at home.

How many times have you wondered how a Hitler could have come to power in Germany, for so long such an important light in Western culture? How far have you gotten in coming to an understanding? An understanding of how evil works in this world?

If you don't master that knowledge, then you open yourself to its ever more subtle ways of attack. If you turn your back on it, seeking to shut it out because what you see isn't pretty, you are laying yourself open to be sideswiped.

Yes, evil exists. It wears the mask of sanity. Discerning what lies behind that mask is an essential part of esoteric work. Alas, some people prefer to ignore that there even exists such a mask.

No one goes to jail for expressing an opinion.

Comment: Some facts:

Americans constitute 5% of the world's population but consume 24% of the world's energy.

On average, one American consumes as much energy as:

2 Japanese

6 Mexicans

13 Chinese

31 Indians

128 Bangladeshis

307 Tanzanians

370 Ethiopians

Americans eat 815 billion calories of food each day - that's roughly 200 billion more than needed - enough to feed 80 million people.

Americans throw out 200,000 tons of edible food daily.

The average individual daily consumption of water is 159 gallons, while more than half the world's population lives on 25 gallons.

Eighty percent of the corn grown and 95% of the oats are fed to livestock.

There are more shopping malls than high schools.


We do not mean to single out Americans as the cause of all the world's ills, and we freely admit that the problem is one of Western, or "developed", countries in general. But the fact remains that America leads the field in over consumption while at the same time presenting itself as the greatest country on earth.

Comment: Yeah, the space brothers are just asking for an invite. "Please save us from ourselves! Please! Please!"

Unfortunately, there is no out. We must save ourselves or suffer the consequences. There is no one who is going to come and hand us salvation on a platter. It must be earned, worked for, by the sweat of our brow.

We know that this is not a popular idea among certain members of the post-modern New Age movement. "If the universe is limitless, then we should all have what we need. We aren't wishing hard enough!!!" They would have us believe that the notion of work, of sweat equity in our salvation, is a holdover from the Protestant work ethic.

We think, on the other hand, that there is no such thing as a free lunch. If you believe there is, then you'll be lunch.

It is a choice each of us must make for ourselves. If someone chooses to be lunch rather than to earn it, that's fine for him or her.

We have made our choice.


NEW! 9/11: The Ultimate Truth is Now Available!

On the fourth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Laura Knight-Jadczyk announced the availability of her latest book:

In the years since the 9/11 attacks, dozens of books have sought to explore the truth behind the official version of events that day - yet to date, none of these publications has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out.

Taking a broad, millennia-long perspective, Laura Knight-Jadczyk's 9/11: The Ultimate Truth uncovers the true nature of the ruling elite on our planet and presents new and ground-breaking insights into just how the 9/11 attacks played out.

9/11: The Ultimate Truth makes a strong case for the idea that September 11, 2001 marked the moment when our planet entered the final phase of a diabolical plan that has been many, many years in the making. It is a plan developed and nurtured by successive generations of ruthless individuals who relentlessly exploit the negative aspects of basic human nature to entrap humanity as a whole in endless wars and suffering in order to keep us confused and distracted to the reality of the man behind the curtain.

Drawing on historical and genealogical sources, Knight-Jadczyk eloquently links the 9/11 event to the modern-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She also cites the clear evidence that our planet undergoes periodic natural cataclysms, a cycle that has arguably brought humanity to the brink of destruction in the present day.

For its no nonsense style in cutting to the core of the issue and its sheer audacity in refusing to be swayed or distracted by the morass of disinformation that has been employed by the Powers that Be to cover their tracks, 9/11: The Ultimate Truth can rightly claim to be THE definitive book on 9/11 - and what that fateful day's true implications are for the future of mankind.
