9/11 : Bombs in the WTC Buildings Proves Nothing to Racist-Fascist Bigots
Fireman Lou Cacchioli was the first to grab me by the heart, mind and soul with his isolated courage by simply telling the truth about what he experienced to the only media that cared to ask about his eyewitness account of 9/11 on July 19, 2005. In the Arctic Beacon article, by Greg Szymanski, he related his observations during the efforts to save as many as he could with little regard for personal safety: “…there were bombs…elevator doors completely blown out… we heard this huge explosion that sounded like a bomb… another huge explosion like the first one hits…. Oh. My God, these bastards put bombs in here like they did in 1993! Then as soon as we get in the stairwell, I hear another huge explosion like the other two. Then I heard bang, bang, bang – huge bangs…”
Damning testimony to the fact that there were bombs in the WTC, but it was only one man’s eyewitness. How valid can one brave and seemingly honest man’s visions be when there were many others that also had to have eyewitness testimony and managed to survive. Distinguished author and professor emeritus of the Claremont Graduate University, David Ray Griffin, exposes those virtually unreported eyewitness experiences in “Explosive Testimony”

A US-Made Mess in Somalia
The media often reports overseas developments but doesn’t always explore their underlying causes, which, in many cases, conveniently lets the U.S. government off the hook. The recent internecine violence in Somalia provides a classic example.
The U.S. media has focused to date almost exclusively on the rising Islamist movement in Somalia and U.S. “covert” assistance to the Ethiopian invasion that supported Somalia’s transitional government against the stronger Islamists. The media should be focusing on one of the major causes of the Somali mess: U.S. government meddling.
After 9/11, the Bush administration feared that the absence of a strong government in the “failed state” of Somalia could turn the small east African country – slightly smaller than Texas – into a haven for terrorists. The administration ignored the fact that other states with weak governments have not become sanctuaries for terrorists. Even if Somalia had become a terrorist enclave, the terrorists, absent some U.S. provocation, probably would not have attacked the faraway United States.
Report: Somali clashes kill more than 1,000
Recent fighting between Ethiopian-backed government troops and Islamic insurgents in Somalia’s capital killed more than 1,000 civilians and wounded 4,300, according to a report by the largest clan in the battle-scarred city.
Iraq war was illegal and breached UN charter, says Annan – Thursday September 16, 2004
The United Nations secretary general, Kofi Annan, declared explicitly for the first time last night that the US-led war on Iraq was illegal.
Mr Annan said the security council had warned Iraq in resolution 1441 there would be “consequences” if it did not comply with its demands. But he said it should have been up to the council to determine what those consequences were.
War Criminal 1 : The Inside Story of the Forged Iraq-Niger Docs That Helped Build the Case for War
In his January 2003 State of the Union address, President Bush declared the infamous sixteen words: “The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.”
The claim was central to the administration’s claims that Saddam Hussein was seeking weapons of mass destruction and served as a basis for launching the Iraq invasion less than two months later.
Bush’s declaration was based on an intelligence document that provided evidence about Iraq’s purchase of uranium from the African country of Niger. But there was one problem: the document was a fake.
We speak with Carlo Bonini is the Italian reporter who broke the Niger story. And Peter Eisner is a veteran foreign correspondent and is currently an editor at the Washington Post. His new book is “The Italian Letter: How the Bush Administration Used a Fake Letter to Build the Case for War in Iraq.”
WarCriminal 2 : Missing Weapons Of Mass Destruction: Is Lying About The Reason For War An Impeachable Offense?
President George W. Bush has got a very serious problem. Before asking Congress for a Joint Resolution authorizing the use of American military forces in Iraq, he made a number of unequivocal statements about the reason the United States needed to pursue the most radical actions any nation can undertake – acts of war against another nation.
Now it is clear that many of his statements appear to be false. In the past, Bush’s White House has been very good at sweeping ugly issues like this under the carpet, and out of sight. But it is not clear that they will be able to make the question of what happened to Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) go away – unless, perhaps, they start another war.
Frankly, I hope the WMDs are found, for it will end the matter. Clearly, the story of the missing WMDs is far from over. And it is too early, of course, to draw conclusions. But it is not too early to explore the relevant issues.
Bush’s statements on Radio Address – October 5, 2002 :
“The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons.”
War Criminal 3 : Text of a Letter from the President to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate
Consistent with section 3(b) of the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 (Public Law 107-243), and based on information available to me, including that in the enclosed document, I determine that:
(1) reliance by the United States on further diplomatic and other peaceful means alone will neither (A) adequately protect the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq nor (B) likely lead to enforcement of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq; and
(2) acting pursuant to the Constitution and Public Law 107-243 is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.
WAR CRIMINAL : NUKE ‘EM TIL THEY GLOW
In the buildup to Desert Storm, many bumper stickers in the U.S. proclaimed, “Nuke ‘Em Till They Glow.” In reality, there was some truth in the statement because the U.S. left hundreds of tons of spent uranium in Iraq. This material is very hard and was used in missiles, rockets and bombs. The leftover residue has contaminated much of Iraq and incidences of malformed babies skyrocketed after the conflict.
The U.S. again pummeled Iraq with spent uranium in its 2003 invasion of Iraq. But, did the U.S. actually detonate a nuclear weapon during the conflict? Former U.S. Army Captain Eric May came to this conclusion after closely studying the Battle of Baghdad at the international airport.
Neocon Lieutenant Colonel Blames Iraq’s Victims
“Once again, the Arab people, within Iraq and without, have failed themselves horribly,” Peters tells Kengor. “Their pettiness, their embrace of corruption, their social structures and their taste for internecine feuds and religious intolerance all have led them to make a hash of this unprecedented opportunity to build one rule-of-law democracy in the Arab world. Arabs have an ineradicable genius for failing themselves.”
In other words, the Iraqis have only themselves to blame for more than a decade of crippling and deadly sanctions in the wake of Bush Senior’s invasion, an illegal and immoral adventure that targeted water and sewage plants, civilian infrastructure, hospitals and homes. Even before Bush the Junior’s invasion, at least 500 children a day in Iraq died from disease, mostly cancer from depleted uranium. “Cases of lymphoblastic leukaemia have more than quadrupled with other cancers,” the Lancet, an esteemed British medical journal, reported in 1998. “In men, lung, bladder, bronchus, skin, and stomach cancers show the highest increase. In women, the highest increases are in breast and bladder cancer, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Diseases such as osteosarcoma, teratoma, nephroblastoma, and rhabdomyosarcoma are also increasing with, according to the review, the most affected being children and young men. Congenital malformations have also increased, as have diseases of the immune system.”
Many Iraqis believe ’suicide’ bombings done by US to start a civil war
Ali Ghazi, also a Shia from the Iraqi deep south. “I believe it is the Americans who are doing this, pretending it is the Sunni, so there will be a civil war and they can control our wealth.” Many survivors lying mangled by this morning’s bombs subscribed to a conspiracy theory according to which the US wants to rule Iraq by fomenting differences between Shia and Sunni…. many of those wounded denied there would be a war between Shia and Sunni. Mohammed Abdul Karim, an injured Shia at Noman hospital, pointed out that he was in a Sunni district and the Sunni doctors were doing everything to help him.
